There's been a lot of media attention given to the new healing therapy known as "earthing" or "grounding" ....which I call "Barefoot Therapy" as it simplifies its description. There are claims that by earthing ourselves regularly that we can heal wounds, insomnia, bad circulation, inflammation and much more. There is scientific evidence behind these claims which make it difficult to ignore and as it doesn't need to cost anything....I thought I'd get my husband to give it a go.
We're on holiday here in Florida for 3 weeks and my husband has suffered from very bad leg ulcers for over 30 years as a result of a car accident which affected the blood circulation in his leg. He has had deep vein thrombosis and has been taking warfarin (a rat poison would you believe) for many years to help thin out his blood. He often has pain in his leg after walking for any length of time and the colour around the lower part of his leg is various shades of purple. I thought it would be a good idea to give this "earthing" a try and see if it lives up to its claims of improving circulation and suggested we take a walk along the beach every day for at least 30mins. My husband agreed to give it a go although and although he was very sceptical, after 4 days he realised he didn't need to wear his regular medicinal stocking and that the skin discolouration became more evenly toned.
Unfortunately he didn't agree to me taking a photo to compare the before and after effects so I can't show evidence but he has acknowledged a noticeable degree of improvement. So much so that he's continuing with the daily walk on the sand and will continue to "earth" when we return home.
I've noticed a considerable improvement in my sleep but I suppose that's what's expected from being on holiday but I will continue to monitor this.
I was wondering if using EFT whilst someone was "grounded" whether it would intensity the process?
Humans walked barefoot and slept on the ground for thousands of years, totally unaware that the surface of the Earth contained limitless healing energy. Science has discovered this energy as free-flowing electrons constantly replenished by solar radiation and lightning. Few people know it, but the ground provides a subtle electric signal that maintains health and governs the intricate mechanisms that make our bodies work-just like plugging a lamp into a power socket makes it light up. Modern lifestyle, including the widespread use of insulative rubber or plastic-soled shoes, has disconnected us from this energy and, of course, we no longer sleep on the ground as we did in times past. Our lack of "connection" with the earth has resulted in poor health and emotional problems so it appears.
A friend of mine (Kathryn Borg) wrote this article for the Times of Malta recently on "grounding" and below are some websites you may wish to visit for more information.
I'll come back to report on my husband's ulcerous leg and if you decide to give this a try, please post something on the blog page so we can all benefit from your experience.
