Grounding (Earthing)

It’s So Simple: Just Connect Physically to Nature 

This concept of Grounding (Earthing) is nothing new. The planet we exist on is the original painkiller, the original anti-inflammatory, the original healer. Get back to nature, MakeLifeanOccasion!

An Endless Amount of Energy 

Redfish Lake, ID 2018 was a life changing event 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 hope, I won’t be disabled by pain caused by the trip getting there.  This trip was immediately different.    

The car ride took 5 hours, that automatically put us off to a dangerous start.  I fell in love immediately.  It was the most beautiful lake I had ever seen, it was awesome!  I wanted to do everything.  We rented a paddle boat, a bike, we went on hikes, we did nature photo shoots, we 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 me 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.  

It Didn’t Make Sense

This was definitely out of character for my body, and my condition.  For sure by now, I would be in some serious 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 thing about what an amazing time I had in Redfish. I was preparing for a few surgeries regarding my pain, it was then I got inspired to heal myself, I had enough of chronic pain.   

I started doing research on self-healing.  I discovered the healing benefits of nature, color and light.  I had my “aha moment” after researching 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.  


Connecting the Dots

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 just takes as little as 30 minutes to make a positive impact to reduce pain and inflammation, I was grounding all day, every day for 5 days... it made sense!  “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 every day life.  I brought nature in our home with plants, rainbows and sunlight.  I started to decorate with purpose, the purpose of healing myself.   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, this was our chain reaction.
