Grounding/Earthing Is So Simple: Connect Physically to Nature
The concept of Grounding (Earthing) is nothing new. This discovery suggests that the planet we live on is the original painkiller, the original anti-inflammatory: nature’s way to counteract inflammation
How Grounding Gave Me Energy Outside of my Autoimmune Condition
Redfish Lake, ID 2018 was an “ah-ha” life-changing moment for me. I have a condition called FSHD Muscular Dystrophy. This impacts my/our life in an invasive way. I live with chronic pain; it affects everything that we do. We have to be mindful of where we go, how far it takes to get there, and then hopefully, I won’t be disabled by the pain caused by the trip getting there. This trip was immediately different.
It took around 5 hours by car to get there, which automatically put us off to a dangerous start. I fell in love as soon as we got there. It was the most beautiful lake I had ever seen; it was awesome! I immediately wanted to do everything. We rented a paddleboat and a bike; we went on hikes, did nature photoshoots, and were active all day, every day. I kept waking up every morning expecting the worst, and it never came… I felt great!
I had endless energy; I had no pain; I wasn’t even taking any pain pills. I went to bed every night in disbelief. I remember telling my husband that my feeling great didn’t make sense for how much physical activity I was involved in. This is a crucial benefit, being mindful of your body and what to expect from it.
Why I didn’t need my pills
This was definitely out of character for my body and my condition. For sure, by now, I would be in some severe pain; after all, I was putting my body through. It made me so curious; I had to figure out what was going on! Every morning I would wake up and see how far I could take myself physically. I was testing my body, and still… every morning, I woke up, I felt great. It was a miracle.
After we got home from our trip, my body was back to its normal pain. Back to being hurt, back to the pain pills, back to the bed. Months passed, I was still thinking about what a fantastic time I had in Redfish. I was preparing for a few surgeries regarding my pain; I got inspired to heal myself; I had enough of chronic pain.
I started researching self-healing. I discovered the healing benefits of nature, color, and light. I had my “ah-ha” moment after discovering something called Grounding/Earthing. It all started to make sense now. I understood why I felt so great in Redfish; it made sense that I had so much energy. I could see why I didn’t need my anti-inflammatory pills. It was all making so much sense.
Connecting the Dots Between Grounding and Autoimmune Condition Healing
I started connecting the dots! The whole time I was in Redfish, I was grounding! I didn’t need my anti-inflammatory pills because grounding is the original anti-inflammatory. It takes as little as 30 minutes to make a positive pain impact; I was grounding all day, every day for five days… it made sense! I discovered, “Earthing significantly reduces the degree and duration of DOMS soreness and inflammation. DOMS refers to the pain, tenderness, and stiffness felt in muscles several hours to days after unaccustomed or strenuous exercise.” Grounding/Earthing was medically documented; I proved the concept to myself without even knowing it existed.
I was a believer! I immediately started incorporating nature into our everyday life. I brought nature into our home with plants, rainbows, and sunlight. I began to decorate with purpose, the purpose of healing myself. Discovering Grounding/Earthing changed my life in so many ways.
Grounding set us on a path that led us directly into nature. I loved nature before, but this took it to the next level. Following my inspiration was a chain reaction.
