"Earthing generates a shift in the nervous system away from sympathetic (the vigilant, fight-or-flight mode) mode associated with stress and toward the parasympathetic calming, relaxing) mode.
2) Earthing exerts a normalizing effect on cortisol, the stress hormone.
3) It promotes better sleep and reduces inflammation and pain."
"The more we learn about sleep and sleep disorders, the more we realize that the symptoms of fatigue and sleepiness experienced by those with chronic sleep disruption are only the tip of the proverbial iceberg. In fact, poor sleep can exert its effects on nearly all medical conditions. Take obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). If left untreated, those with OSA have an increased risk of developing high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, heart attack and stroke."
"Emerging research is revealing that direct physical contact of the human body with the surface of the earth (grounding or earthing) has intriguing effects on human physiology and health, including beneficial effects on various cardiovascular risk factors. This study examined effects of 2 hours of grounding on the electrical charge (zeta potential) on red blood cells (RBCs) and the effects on the extent of RBC clumping."
