The Earth is filled with natural energy. Earthing is simply tapping into that abundant source of energy to create balance and harmony within the body. Earthing will actually connect the frequencies of the earth to the frequencies of the human body promoting a sense of wellbeing. The energy infusion can restore and stabilize the bioelectrical circuitry that governs your physiology and organs and harmonizes your basic biological rhythms. Direct connection to the Earth while lying, sitting or going barefoot are great ways to make the human/earth connection and transfer the energy. (The beach is a great spot). There are also certain conducting or grounding products (such as bedding sheets) in the marketplace that offer acceptable alternatives to outdoor experiences that may qualify as practical substitutes.
