I was reading Dr. Mercola’s book, Fat for Fuel, and I came upon an interesting section about earthing and its benefits for mitochondrial health.
What is earthing?
It’s basically taking benefit by being in direct contact with the ground, as the ground gives off beneficial electrons that can be transferred to your body. If… you’re barefoot or wearing the proper “earthing” shoes. If… you’re on the proper walking surface (sand, grass, soil, unsealed concrete, brick, and ceramic tile – according to Dr. Mercola).
Earthing proponents claim it can speed wound healing, help diminish the negative effect of EMF, promote sleep, relieve pain, and lower inflammation.
