Earthing, a secret for growing younger?
Electrons are the basis of all energy in us. We won’t be alive when the flow of electrons in our body stops.
Do you know that ⅔ of the electrons we use to create energy in our body comes from the sun and the earth, only ⅓ comes from the food? (Yes, the food we eat breaks down into electrons and protons before they are used for energy production.)
As much as we appreciate the importance of breathing, metabolizing oxygen creates by-products called free radicals, aka Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS), which are unpaired and unstable electrons that constantly steal electrons from stable cells. Free radicals can also be generated from stress, illnesses, pollutants in the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat, and harmful chemicals in homes and buildings.
An easy way to understand free radicals is to cut an apple and leave it for a short while. The oxidation turns the apple brown! That’s exactly how free radicals work - they age the apple.
Excess free radicals can cause damage to cells, proteins and DNA, and are responsible for some of our most threatening chronic conditions such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic pain syndromes, chronic inflammation, and autoimmunity.
The good news is that we also have antioxidants in supply. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals by donating an electron to a free radical without becoming destabilized themselves, thus stopping the free radical chain reaction and cleaning up waste in the cells.
The negatively charged electrons from the Earth act as antioxidants (like in fruit and vegetables) to keep free radicals in check.
Unfortunately, Mankind has disconnected from the Earth’s electrical rhythm as we evolved and lost the touch of its greatest source of electrons. People in modern life are chronically electron-depleted.
Since the rubber-soled shoes were mass-produced at the beginning of the 20th century, we have blocked the most healthful negative charges from the Earth from entering into our body. That’s right. I will never see shoes the same way again. We now live in the high rise buildings and sleep in beds that are separated from the Earth. Furthermore, we have disrupted the Earth’s natural magnetism by installing underground power lines, and man-made radiation forces. Grounding and its benefits in the modern world are no longer the same.
Only earth in natural places, such as the beach, natural parks and forests. If you earth in places with a high concentration of wireless networks and cell towers, its harm might be greater than benefits as those radio frequencies can go through you since human body is highly conductive.
Once again, we are back to the basics. Connect to nature, rebuild your health.
