Related to our current focus on the electromagnetic body (here and here), our Movie of the Week invites a look at another important aspect of the electromagnetic nature of life.
Grounding or earthing is the physical exchange of electrical frequencies between the human body and the earth. The human body is a natural conductor, but with our modern-day lifestyle—connected to electrical appliances, smartphones, and computers—most don’t know or forget that we can discharge some of the frequencies and recharge ourselves with the beneficial free electrons from the earth.
This documentary shows the profound effects earthing can have on human health, cognition, and general biological function. And it shows how detrimental it can be when we miss out on the natural electrons Earth provides.
One of the culprits are the insulating soles of our shoes, mostly made of rubber and synthetic materials. Our immune systems function optimally when the body has an adequate supply of electrons, which are easily and naturally obtained by barefoot contact with the earth.
Walking barefoot on the ground can literally become the first step to lasting health.
“[T]his most common-sense thing that we are organisms that live and grow and depend entirely on the earth while we are alive, and yet, we have completely isolated our self from it…. We’re so disconnected that it becomes this weird thing if we actually slip our shoes off.” ~ Laura Koniver
