Earthing Mat

"Connect to Earth"

Earthing, also known as Grounding (or Vitamin G), is not something new or fancy. It is simply a term used to describe the direct contact of any human body part to the earth (Not man-made). Years of extensive research has shown that connecting to the Earth's natural surfaces, on grass, sand, dirt or rock can diminish chronic pain, fatigue and other ailments that plague so many people today.

How

Earthing Mat

can help you:

One of the biggest benefits Earthing has shown to help with is reducing inflammation in the body - it does this by providing the body with a large source of antioxidants which in turn minimises free radical damage to cells and tissues, allowing the body to heal and repair. This is huge because if you can knock down the fire of inflammation on a daily basis, you will prevent your tissues and cells becoming damaged and diseased and therefore ward off potential chronic illnesses. With less inflammation in the body you may experience less aches and pains, sleep better, feel calmer and less stressed, have a stronger immune system, ward off potentially life threatening diseases and it will contribute to your overall general well-being and longevity.

Sleep

  • Has the ability to resynchronize the circadian rhythm by regulating the diurnal secretion of cortisol. Eg. If cortisol is too low it will raise it or if cortisol is too high, it will lower it (1).
  • When cortisol is too high at night, has the ability to impair sleep quality, and thus therefore this product can indirectly enhance sleep quality, in individuals who have high cortisol (14).

Longevity

  • Grounding the human body reduces blood viscosity—a major factor in cardiovascular disease (4). Reduces bone loss, thus lowering the risk for osteoporosis (5).
  • Increases Heart Rate Variability (10), which is a major marker for cardiovascular fitness.
  • Enhances thyroid function, by increasing Free T4 and TSH, while free T3 decreased (5). This leads to an elevated metabolism, and possibly even greater lean body mass.
  • Subjects who slept grounded showed statistically significant decreases in serum sodium, potassium, magnesium, iron, total protein, albumin concentrations, inorganic phosporus (5).
  • One-Hour Contact with the Earth’s Surface (Grounding) Improves Inflammation and Blood Flow (8).
  • Changes pulse rate, respiratory rate, blood oxygenation, perfusion index, skin conductance after only 40 minutes (11).

Anti-inflammatory

  • Grounding reduces or even prevents the cardinal signs of inflammation following injury: redness, heat, swelling, pain, and loss of function. Rapid resolution of painful chronic inflammation was confirmed in 20 case studies using medical infrared imaging (7).
  • Reduces DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness), which is a result of training intensely (2, 9).
  • Changes in pain and stress (anxiety, depression, and irritability), as measured by subjective reporting (3). The grounded men had only a slight decrease in white blood cells, indicating scant inflammation, and, for the first time ever observed, a shorter recovery time.
  • Decreases muscle tension (2).

I first started using this earthing mat during my 2nd year of university, and noticed that my sleeping patterns were becoming more synchronised and efficient. I also noticed that I the first few nights, I was sleeping an extra hour, which quickly lessened as time went by. I use this every single night now.
