Earthing/Grounding Kits contain a sheet that go over your mattress and connect to a grounding wire that runs to the wall or out a window or door to the ground. The sheet is washable and usually last for years. You can enjoy sleeping connected to the earth all night long.
Is earthing or grounding a new thing? No. Our ancestors slept grounded when they laid on straw mats which were placed on dirt floors. Earthing/Grounding Kits let you get the same benefits they had with modern methods.
Clint Ober’s research and Optimum Health’s clients have reported the following benefits of sleeping grounded:
- Skin ulcers healing without leaving a scar in days.
- Sleep disturbances corrected overnight.
- Snoring ceases on the first night.
- Carpel Tunnel subsiding in minutes.
- Cortisol levels normalizing in one night.
- Joint pain subsiding in one night.
- Sjogren’s Syndrome symptoms disappearing in just a few months!
Why Use Earthing/Grounding Products?
Earthing/Grounding kits allow the earth to give you the electrons needed to serve as antioxidants. These antioxidant electrons counteract free radicals. This stops the inflammation that free radicals cause that can lead to the many known inflammatory diseases and issues such as arthritis, sjogren’s syndrome, carpal tunnel, snoring and more. When your body no longer has to deal with free radicals, your body can take the nutrients it was using to deal with the free radicals to give you more energy and heal other things.
Dr. Mercola on Grounding: “Walking Barefoot Cures Exhaustion and Weight Gain”
Dr. Mercola claims that a process called “grounding” or “earthing” can significantly change your health. Grounding or earthing refers to contact with the Earth’s surface electrons by walking barefoot outside or sitting, working or sleeping indoors connected to conductive systems, transferring the energy from the ground into the body. Emerging research supports that this may result in reduced pain, better sleep and less inflammation. The logical explanation for the reduction in inflammation is that the Earth’s negatively charged antioxidant electrons enter the body and neutralize positively charged free radicals in the body. To get this benefit, Dr. Mercola recommends grounding or earthing sheets, made with fine thin strands of silver and which connect to an outlet; these cost about $200. (Taken from DoctorOz.com)
Dr. Oz’s Bottom Line on Grounding:
Before spending money on a device for grounding, try just stepping outside, in your yard. Avoid wood surfaces, as wood insulates you from the earth. See if doing so improves your energy levels. (Taken fromDoctorOz.com)
It seems that Dr. Oz is for the grounding sheets. He simply suggest that you make sure that earthing/grounding will be beneficial to you before you make the investment. Sounds like an excellent idea. That is what we did. We experimented with being connected to the earth for one solid year. After seeing the wonderful results, we decided that there was the need to return to sleeping grounding as our ancestors did when a bed was a bunch of straw laying a dirt floor. We are thankful to be able to be sleep grounding without having to go back to straw! We now recommend the products from Earthing.com.

Earthing/Grounding Medication Advisory
Research indicates that Earthing the body affects physiological functioning in a variety of ways. Because of this, we strongly recommend that any individual taking medication to thin the blood, regulate blood sugar, control blood pressure, or to supplement thyroid activity should consult with their doctor before using Earthing products, and then monitor the medication. An adjustment, usually a decrease, in medication may be necessary.
