Grounding kids isn’t always easy. But it’s sometimes necessary.
I’m not talking about banishing your kids to their rooms, silly. I’m talking about grounding them to the earth. Yes, you can actually ground yourself and your kids to the earth. And it’s super good for you!
Not familiar with grounding and its benefits? You’ve probably done it before but never knew there was a name for it.
Ever wonder why it feels so good to walk on the beach with the sand between your toes? Or how good it feels to walk barefoot on grass?
There’s actually science behind this phenomenon. When our body touches the earth, there’s a transference of electrons that takes place. And it’s this connection to Earth’s healing energy that gives us a sense of wellbeing.
Human beings evolved in connection with the Earth’s energy. We walked barefoot and we slept in contact with the Earth never realizing that its surface contained limitless, natural, healing energy. Walking around barefoot is not our main mode of travel any longer. We live indoors much of the time and when we do walk or run outside we wear rubber soled shoes which prevent our feet from being able to absorb the Earth’s subtle energy. Rubber is not conductive, but our bodies are!
The phenomenon of Earthing was discovered by Clint Ober. He co-authored a book entitled, “Earthing” describing what happens when we connect with the Earth’s natural surface. Clint also helped develop mats that could be used indoors while still acquiring all of the healing properties of touching the Earth.
Earthing can now be done in the convenience of your own home and while you sleep! It couldn’t be any easier to ground yourself and your whole family.
The Ground Therapy Sleep Mat offers EMF protection by removing harmful electrical charges that build up in the body and disrupt its natural electrical frequency.
While protecting you from harmful EMFs, your Ground Therapy Sleep Mat also connects you to a stream of beneficial electrons from the Earth offering anti-inflammatory, pain relieving, anti-aging antioxidants to your entire body, all night long.
We’ve been using Ultimate Longevity’s Ground Therapy Sleep Mats for 2 months now. I’ve been anxiously waiting to share with you my family’s experience. I didn’t want to start writing about it prematurely without giving ourselves ample time to evaluate our experience.
Here’s what we’ve noticed so far:
My husband, Roy, works in road construction. His job is very labor intensive. Having an injury of some sort is extremely common in his line of work. Add to that, back injuries from his football days and it’s easy to say he experiences aches and pains quite frequently. Since using the sleep mats, he’s noticed less soreness in his back and his shoulder no longer bothers him.
My experience is less exciting. Although, I, too, have sciatic pain, it’s quite rare for me to have flare ups. The use of an inversion table which I’ve been using for years along with the healing properties of turmeric, has kept my pain at bay. Although I’m pretty sure the sleep mats are also helping to contribute to the decrease of inflammation. But, the most obvious change I’ve noticed was something totally unexpected! I’ve been having dreams again! Almost nightly! I’m not sure what the science is behind this, but my husband can also attest to this occurrence. My sleep has also been more restful and rejuvenating with the sleep mats.
Our kids are still too young to explain to us if they feel anything different. (We co-sleep and have mats that cover our double King bed.) Although they haven’t told us they notice a change, we definitely observed a wonderful difference in our son’s seizures. Our son has nocturnal seizures and we’ve noticed a substantial decrease in frequency. The only thing different we had started was the use of sleep mats. It was not something we were expecting to see but we’re beyond thankful for it.
There really is no excuse for not incorporating ground therapy into our lives when it’s as easy as sleeping. I also like how they’re portable so we can bring them with us on our travels. Ultimate Longevity’s Ground Therapy Sleep Mats and other grounding products can be found here.
When was the last time you walked barefoot on Mother Earth?
