Is there a natural answer to hypertension? Have you heard about Earthing? If you have high blood pressure and you’re looking for a natural solution, you may be standing on top of the answer.
New research shows the Earth could be a natural remedy for a number of health issues, and it’s getting put to the test against high blood pressure.
Dr. Stehpen T. Sinatra And Dr. Howard Elkin are about to begin a study to see if hypertension can be positively affected by the simple practice of Earthing.
In case you’re not familiar with Earthing read on. You may be surprised to learn, the Earth’s surface is brimming with electrons that have the ability to reduce pain in your body and diminish inflammation.
In 1998 Clint Ober made a discovery that is sure to revolutionize the way people think about health. Our shoes, he thought, insulate us from the ground. Clint wondered if that loss of direct contact with the Earth might have any health consequences; And it turns out it does.
The study that’s coming up is likely to serve more as a confirmation that Earthing can positively affect high blood pressure. Many testimonials, from thousands of people who’ve been practicing Earthing, already tell the story of significant drops in blood pressure of those grounding themselves regularly.
There are a number of physiological changes that occur once your bare skin is in contact with the Earth. Some of these changes do have an affect on blood pressure, so the connection between Earthing and lowering high blood pressure makes a lot of sense.
Dr. Sinatra has revealed a logical explanation for the drop in blood pressure, observed in many of those grounding themselves; It’s the effect produced in the blood after grounding for as little as 30 minutes.
After 1/2 hour of Earthing (grounding) red blood cells develop something called zeta potential. In the case of Earthing, zeta potential can be viewed as electric potential. The zeta potential causes the red blood cells to repel each other which creates movement and thins the blood.
Clint Ober and Dr. Sinatra have observed the blood of many people under a microscope, before Earthing and after Earthing for 30 minutes. I was fortunate enough to be in an audience once to see this test done; It’s pretty amazing.
In almost every case, the red blood cells stick together before grounding and have no definable shape. After grounding, the red blood cells spread apart from each other and look like little discs; They look healthy.
After Earthing the blood has lower viscosity (It’s thinner), and pressure on the vessels and arteries is reduced.
There are other physiological changes, Earthing influences, that can positively impact blood pressure as well.
Normalization of cortisol levels, a switch from the sympathetic to the parasympathetic nervous system mode (Read A Calmer Nervous System Through Earthing.), better sleep, reduced inflammation and diminished pain are some of the changes the Earthing Institute has named, which may be attributable to the changes experienced in blood pressure, as a result of grounding.
The upcoming study on Earthing and Hypertension will be conducted in the Los Angeles area on participants between the ages of 30 and 80. I’m excited to see the results of the study when they come out; and I’ll be sure to post them here.
You can ground yourself anytime you want, for free. Go get your bare skin in contact with the Earth and see if you feel a little better.
The more time you spend grounded the better the benefits. There are number of Earthing products you can use to reap the benefits of Earthing indoors. Be sure to have a look.
