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. For more information please see our blog about Earthing and 20 Benefits To Earthing
Moccasins: Our moccasins are made of all natural leather which makes them conductive.
Copper Rivets: Copper rivets are manually inserted into the middle of the foot-bed sole to allow some electron flow into your feet. This way you can wear rubber sole shoes or sandals but still experience earthing.
Barefoot is still the best.
You could wear our sheepskin slippers with some Mohair socks inside any of our Earthing shoes. But unfortunately your feet will still get cold during the winter months since your feet will likely get wet and our shoes don't offer enough insulation for outdoor temperatures. Canadian winters are not very friendly to those who want to practice Earthing. Please see our blog for ideas of how to practice Earthing in the Winter.
The best option is an earthing pad, bed sheet or other alternative grounding products we carry. Earthing shoes will only work inside if you are on a grounding pad or on concrete. For more ideas see our blog about conductive materials.
Only if they are not rubber soled or have no foam insoles. All our moccasins on our site are considered Earthing footwear as they are double soled with natural leather only. No synthetic or non conductive materials are used.
It is best to go barefoot while wearing Earthing shoes however, the best kind of socks to wear are are cotton or wool as moisture from the sweat glands in your feet produces perspiration which is essentially moisture and ions. Consequently the ions produced, then allow conduction through the fabric of the socks into the body. If you are looking for added warmth in your Earthing shoes you could also try sheepskin insoles.
You don't need the ground rod if your outlets are grounded (purchase an outlet checker or use the one included in your product). If the outlets are not grounded then if you are more than a few floors up the ground rod will not work. If you are hesitant about whether your outlets are grounded, you can order an outlet checker from out store.
Lux is a unit to measure the intensity of light. Indoor lighting might seem bright but is typically below 500 Lux. You can get 10,000 Lux outdoors in the summer or spring but in winter it can be difficult! That’s why all Northern Light Technologies bright light products provide 10,000 Lux. Just 30 minutes of 10,000 Lux can help you find the energy you need to thrive.
