Your body is capable of generating electricity, and this ability is actually a key part of your achieving health. Electricity allows your nervous system to send signals to your brain and are essential for full body communication and health.
The messages conducted via electrical signals in your body are responsible for controlling the rhythm of your heartbeat, the movement of blood around your body, and much more.
Your biological clock even uses electrical activity in order to help keep your circadian rhythms in order. You are, quite simply, an electrical being. If electrical activity stops in your body, you cannot survive.
The chiropractic and Quantum Neurology techniqe we provide in the office is one of the best methods of creating electrical activity in your body and making sure your entire electrical communication system is working at it’s peak.
Your Body Can Also Absorb Free Electrons from the Earth
The Earth carries an enormous negative charge. It’s always electron-rich and can serve as a powerful and abundant supply of antioxidant and free-radical-busting electrons.
Your body is finely tuned to “work” with the Earth in the sense that there’s a constant flow of energy between your body and the Earth. When you put your feet on the ground, you absorb large amounts of negative electrons through the soles of your feet. This simple process is called “grounding” or “earthing,” and its effect is one of the most potent antioxidants we know of.
Grounding has been shown to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, improve sleep, enhance wellbeing, and much, much more.
Grounding’s potent antioxidant effect helps alleviate inflammation throughout your body, a potentially life-saving benefit since inflammation is at the root of most diseases, including heart disease.
Furthermore, grounding also calms your sympathetic nervous system, which supports your heart rate variability.
How to Reconnect with the Earth’s Electrical Charge
Many Americans spend most of their waking hours wearing shoes with rubber or plastic soles. These materials are very effective insulators, which disconnect you from the Earth’s natural electron flow. Wearing leather-soled shoes will allow you to stay grounded with the Earth, as will walking barefoot, but you’ll need to do so on the proper surface. Good grounding surfaces include:
• Sand (beach)
• Grass (preferably moist)
• Bare soil
• Concrete and brick (as long as it’s not painted or sealed)
• Ceramic tile
The following surfaces will NOT ground you:
• Rubber and plastic
Tar or tarmac
As mentioned, simply taking off your shoes as much as you can when you’re outdoors will help you take advantage of natural grounding opportunities.
So, in the absence of a good chiropractic adjustment, get “grounded” for a quick health pick me up.
