Earthing™ Technology

I was contacted a couple months ago by a company called Barefoot Connections™. They manufacture bed sheets and recovery bags that allow people to sleep as-if they were sleeping ON the earth, i.e., grounded. Apparently there are health benefits for being grounded to the earth and science seems to be backing them up.

I know that since going barefoot nearly full time several years ago, my own health has improved significantly, so I agreed to try their products and am pleased with what I have discovered.

Earthing™ Technology – What is Earthing™?

Many people have noticed that they feel better when they spend time barefoot in the outdoors. Now we know why!

Earthing™ (re-connecting with the earth) is a recent idea. It is based on scientific evidence confirming the long-suspected necessity for barefoot contact with the earth. Modern science has determined that standing barefoot on the earth (or otherwise connecting to the natural frequencies of the earth) has a wide variety of effects on the human body.

Standing barefoot on the earth (or otherwise connecting to the natural frequencies of the earth) connects the human body with an unlimited supply of free electrons resident in and on the surface of the earth. Standing barefoot on the earth also connects the human body with rhythmic cycles of the earth’s energy field. These are essential for synchronizing biological clocks, hormonal cycles and physiological rhythms.

Because our modern lifestyle prohibits most people from spending time in direct contact with the earth, Barefoot Connections™ products were designed to help make the connection – in the comfort of your own home or work place. In today’s world, re-connecting with the earth (Earthing™) could be one of the most important things you do!

Best Regards, BFT

That is an interesting thought. Maybe I missed it, but how does it connect you with the earth?

Good question.

The main products at this time are bed sheets that have silver thread running through them that connect to a grounded outlet.

From Barefoot Connections website:

When a person is in bed – resting or sleeping on either the Barefoot Connections™ Bed Pad or on a Barefoot Connections™ Sheet Set – the body is connected to the earth. The sheeting fabric contains a grid of conductive, inherently antimicrobial, silver yarn. The fabric snaps to a copper wire system which is connected to the Earth Tap. When the Earth Tap is plugged into a grounded outlet, it becomes connected to the earth via the outlet's ground system.

The body is immediately brought to the same electrical potential as the earth and connected with the earth's vital electrons and other natural rhythms and frequencies. All of this occurs at the speed of light and without effort while in a state of rest or sleep.

Any links to real scientific studies that show that this is a necessity? Not to sound skeptical but this brings to mind magnet therapy.

Yes, I think that some serious healthy skepticism is necessary with anything like this.

For sure, I am not an expert.

Let me know what you think.

Dear BFT,
Many congratulations, record breaker!!!!

As a barefoot purist, I'll sleep on the floor instead. Sleeping on the floor rocks - it does take a little getting used to but it does indeed rock. Not sure my wife likes it much, so I only do it when she's away. Hmm probably too much detail there, I'd better stop.
Barefoot runner since December 2004.
