Grounding or Earthing occurs when your feet have the opportunity to connect to the Earth. Touching the Earth naturally discharges electrical stress from our bodies by facilitating the reception of free electrons. Earthing occurs when the nerves in our feet pick up the electron transfer from the earth. Earthing shifts our nervous system from a stress dominated state to one of calmness. By reconnecting to the earth, you enable your body to return to its normal electrical state, which makes you better able to self-regulate and self-heal. Those who practices Grounding regularly, notice decreased inflammation, better balance, feel more energized and refreshed among many other health benefits.
The easiest and most affordable way to practice Earthing is to walk outside barefoot. However in modern society, we wear insulating shoes from the moment we wake up, to the moment we go to bed. It's just a reality that most people don't regularly go barefoot, if at all, especially when outside. So shoes that help people practice Earthing were created to address the issues of comfort, suitability, reality, and functionality.
