Earthing for a healthier you; How and why, 2

Grounding methodology #1:
A conductive patch is placed on the body near site of chronic inflammation. The patch is connected via a fuse-protected conductive wire attached to a ground rod placed directly in the earth Below are examples of typical results.

Subject with chronic inflammation in knee. Conductive patch placed on subject’s knee. Ground rod placed directly in the earth. Before: arthritic inflammation (ankle) After: 7 nights using ground patch Subject (age 65) with chronic pain and inflammation in ankle reported that significant relief from pain occurred within minutes of grounding via the patch. After grounding for 7 nights, inflammation disappeared and circulation significantly improved.

Before: Diabetes lower leg
After: 7 nights using ground patch Subject (age 47) with Type II diabetes After 3 nights of grounding, subject reported significant relief from pain of neuropathy and improved sleep. After 7 nights reduction in redness and inflammation demonstrated significant
improvement in circulation. Subject also reported improvement in energy levels and an
overall sense of “increased well-being”.

Grounding methodology #2:
A conductive-grounded bed pad. Bed pad is placed on top of mattress (fitted sheet goes on top of pad). Bed pad is connected via a fuse-protected conductive wire attached to a ground rod placed directly in the earth.
Grounding methodology #1,
localized grounding (grounded electrode patch placed near site of inflammation) provides a path for the direct current of the earth to flow to a site of inflammation. The visual results produced by localized grounding demonstrate that restoring the DC of the earth to the surface of the body stabilizes normal electron transfers (neutralizing excess free radicals) and reduces inflammation.

Grounding methodology #2
Sleeping on a ground plane such as a conductive grounded bed pad placed under a bed sheet also stabilizes excess free radicals. When lying on an earthed ground plane, and insulated from direct contact with it by a sheet, the body does not conduct the DC of the earth but instead electrically couples with and conducts the DC electric field radiating from the earthed ground plane. This creates a natural shielding effect (faraday cage) on the surface of the body that prevents environmental 50-60 Hz electric fields fromdisturbing normal electron transfers in the body that otherwise elevate free radical levels.

In a recent pilot study, conducted to identify the biological effects of grounding the
human body during sleep, this second grounding method (sleeping on a grounded bed
pad) was utilized. During a six-week period, eight female subjects were grounded to the earth during sleep. Conductive bed pads were placed on their own beds (under the
fitted sheet) and were connected to a fuse-protected ground wire attached to a ground rod that was placed directly in the earth outdoors.

Sampling of AC electric field induced voltage measured on subjects’ bodies
while lying in their own beds Subject Before Grounding After Grounding
Subject Before After
1 3.940 V 0.003 V
2 1.470 V 0.001 V
3 2.700 V 0.004 V
4 1.200 V 0.002 V
5 2.700 V 0.005 V
6 1.670 V 0.005 V
7 5.950 V 0.008 V
8 3.940 V 0.008 V
The electric field induced body voltage (from exposure to common electrical wiring and cords near the bed), created on subjects’ bodies while in bed, averaged 2.9 volts pre-grounding. Levels were significantly reduced, averaging 0.004 volts, when subjects slept on the earthed bed pads.

The circadian secretion of hormone cortisol, a known biomarker associated with stress
and chronic inflammation, was measured in subjects pre- and post-grounding.

Normal circadian cortisol profile Test subjects’ circadian cortisol profiles pre–sleeping grounded.
Cortisol measurements by Sabre Sciences Laboratory of San Diego, CA using a standard radioimmunoassay In unstressed individuals the normal 24-hour circadian cortisol secretion profile follows a predictable pattern, lowest at 12 midnight and highest at 8AM (see figure 1). Abnormal cortisol secretion during sleep is associated with
sleep disorders and chronic inflammation, and can also contribute to abnormal glucose levels, decreased immune response, mood disturbances, gastrointestinal disorders, chronic pain, fatigue, decreased bone density, autoimmune disease, high blood pressure and heart disease.
The pre- and post-grounding results illustrated the significant stabilization
of cortisol secretion as a result of sleeping grounded, with a resynchronization of the
groups’ circadian profile, much more in alignment with the normal circadian cortisol
secretion profile. Seven of the eight females had a reduction in high to out-of-range
nighttime cortisol, averaging a 53.7% reduction, and six of the eight subjects had a rise
(averaging 34.3%) in 8AM levels to more normal levels. In the two subjects whose 8AM
cortisol levels were abnormally high, their cortisol levels dropped 38%.

Subjects were also asked to record their subjective experiences of sleep, pain and
emotional stress throughout the study period. Significant improvements in sleep as well
as alleviation of emotional stress (irritability, anxiety and depression), were reported.
Additionally all types of chronic pain were reported to be significantly reduced,
indicating that inflammation levels in subjects’ bodies decreased as a result of sleeping
grounded (see case study reports below).
