Our ancestors well understood the miracles of body-earth-universe harmony. We knew that connecting to earth’s natural energy prevents fatigue, chronic pain, regulates stress hormone, enhances good sleep, neutralises cell-damaging molecules, promotes optimal biological rhythms, body reverts faster to relaxed state, builds a strong immune system. All this came naturally to grounded generation by osmosis before researchers established the same, points out Rupa, in the weekly column, exclusively for Different Truths.
Every childhood is coloured with exhilarating memories of rollicking on grass, squishing mud pies, digging sand castles, chalking art on concrete, climbing rocks and loving the liberating joy of primal contact with mother earth. The journey of human history has us sitting, sleeping, walking on the ground, and working in soil with bare hands to grow food, all of them being nature’s efficient way of keeping us happy and healthy.
Our ancestors well understood the miracles of body-earth-universe harmony. At small age we knew that connecting to earth’s natural energy prevents fatigue, chronic pain, regulates stress hormone, enhances good sleep, neutralises cell-damaging molecules, promotes optimal biological rhythms, body reverts faster to relaxed state, builds a strong immune system. All this came naturally to grounded generation by osmosis before researchers established the same.
Modern lifestyle choices have moved us far from basic bond with the Cosmos. Contact of skin or bare feet with earth (aka Grounding or Earthing) picks up natural anti-oxidants (free electrons) optimising our physical, mental and emotional well being is confirmed by scientific community.
Extreme temperatures and civilized, educated, westernised, urban lifestyle evolution dictated use of slippers, replacing natural leather-soled shoes with insulated plastics, rubber. Fashions moved us from pure cotton and wool fabrics to feel-good affordable synthetics. Furniture and mattress sellers elevated ground-sleeping arrangements to higher beds with soft layers. Homes acquired carpets, vinyl, wood floors; and outdoors boast of sealed concrete, tar roads. The price paid is that unnatural surfaces block electron flow as they are non-conducive surfaces.
These convenient, pretty practical, often cost-effective, sometimes fashion statement choices have led to distancing us from Vitamin G (grounding). Our body cells are under harmful onslaught from ocean of electronic radiation from Cell towers, Mobiles, Microwaves, daily use appliances.
Now more than ever we need to turn to natural Vitamin G from earth that is freely available to minimise negative impact of all that is integral to our lives.Vitamin G (Grounding or Earthing) is not a replacement for modern medicine but it is the best prevention for ailments leading to expensive potions, pills, therapies, procedures.
It is imperative we make use of natural gifts of Vitamin D from Sun, Vitamin G from earth by reconnecting to nature’s generosity. Some easy tips to enhance body balance include use of:
- Natural fabric to cover skin,
- Natural material footwear.
- Moisturize dry skin in colder climate (electrons travel easier in dry air)
- Reduce dependence on electromagnetic contraptions of daily use
- Use of Ionizer in a room can balance the charge imbalance and reduce static too
- Humidifier or bowls of water during winters near heat vents help
- Walk barefoot daily for 45 minutes on natural surface
- Sleep when possible on ground
