Do you remember the last time you took a walk without any footwear on? Some of us don’t like to walk barefooted especially on the earth. This is because they associate the bare earth with dirt and infections. They tend to wear shoes all the time when going out and avoid the ground at all costs. However, they don’t know what they are losing.
For those of you who took science seriously, and then you already know that there exist both positive and negative ions. You will also be in a position to understand the fact that our bodies have numerous positive ions that area impaired (free radicals) which we pick in our day to day life. Such ions (free radicals) are linked with aging, inflammation, and diseases and the best thing is that you can shed them off through the healing powers of the earth.
These ions can be put to a state of balance naturally through a process of grounding. Grounding which is also referred to as earthing takes you back to the neutral balanced state every time you touch the earth with a barefoot. At such a time, the positive ions will be neutralized (discharged) by the negative ions that naturally rush into your body from the surface of the earth.
Since it is not possible for many of us to walk without wearing shoes almost always, the modern technology has helped to come up with shoes that can serve the same purpose. The grounding shoes are now available for the purpose of getting rid of the free radicals present in your body.
There are numerous benefits linked with the earthing shoes (another name for the grounding shoes) as seen below.
Improved cardiovascular health
Studies have suggested that wearing grounding shoes helps get rid of the free radicals from your body and consequently reducing the risk of acquiring heart attacks and cardiovascular diseases. This process, in fact, thins your blood thus reducing inflammation; something that enhances your blood pressure and flow.
Less Depression, Anxiety and Stress
It is now certain that putting on grounding shoes can enhance your heart rate variability that may lead to reduced depression, anxiety and stress. This also comes with cardiovascular benefits such as the ones mentioned above. Reduced depression, anxiety, and stress could translate to fewer headaches. Besides it can help you recover from the deadly adrenal fatigue since, as you already know, stress is one of the factors that can lead adrenaline fatigue.
It is always said that getting a good night sleep is the only way of enjoying a simple life. Another advantage of utilizing grounding shoes is that you will sleep better. This is due to the fact that grounding reduces cortisol levels translating to sleep better. Remember that you can also obtain higher energy levels during the day something that also leads to better sleep.
