Answering the Frequently Asked Questions About Grounding Sheets?
Heard about grounding but not sure whether it will work for you or not. A lot of people who come to us asking about our grounding products experience a similar dilemma! They are unsure about its effectiveness and health benefits, considering this is an alternative wellness therapy. However, over the years several studies have been conducted and we have testimonials from users who vouch about the efficacy of grounding sheets in improving the quality of life and well-being. On that note, here we have answered some of the frequently asked questions on grounding.
- What is Grounding?
Let’s start by answering the basic question. Grounding or earthing, is a practice that involves coming in direct physical contact with the Earth’s surface, usually by walking barefoot on natural terrain like grass, soil, or sand. It works with natural water bodies too. The Earth carries a natural electric charge, and when we connect with it, our bodies absorb negatively charged electrons. This connection helps balance the electric charge within our bodies, potentially improving our health. In our experience, we have seen grounding reduce inflammation, improve sleep, and promote overall well-being.
- What is a Grounding Sheet?
Grounding sheets are bedding products designed to facilitate the practice of grounding while you sleep or rest. They contain conductive materials, like silver that are woven into the fabric. These materials are connected to a grounding plug you insert into a grounded electrical outlet or grounding rod.
- How does a Grounding Sheet Work?
As mentioned, grounding sheets are made of conductive materials, like silver. A wire from the sheet attaches to a grounding plug, which is then plugged into a grounded electrical outlet or grounding rod. When you lie on the sheet, it allows your body to come in contact with the Earth’s electrons, potentially reducing inflammation and improving overall well-being.
- What do Studies and Research Say about Grounding?
There are studies and scientific research that support the benefits of grounding or earthing for the human body, dispelling the idea that it’s purely a spiritual or alternative wellness concept.
A study published in the Journal of Inflammation Research highlights the positive impact of grounding on reducing inflammation and pain. Grounding allows the absorption of negatively charged electrons from the Earth, which neutralizes free radicals responsible for inflammation.
Free radicals are unstable molecules that lack an electron, causing cellular damage and inflammation by trying to steal electrons from other molecules. Grounding helps stabilize free radicals by providing them with the needed electrons. Other than that, grounding is known to reduce stress levels by balancing the body’s internal electrical environment through an influx of negative ions.
