PLUG SOLD SEPARATELY. We stock UK plugs, EU plugs, and grounding rods (that need to go straight into the earth).
An inexpensive and convenient way to get the benefits of an Earth connection while indoors.
For indoor use, can also be worn while sleeping (generally on the foot or ankle for sleep use).
This kit contains an elasticated fabric grounding band, and a 6m (20ft) coiled cord. It comes in an organic natural cotton bag for convenient travelling.
The fabric band is lightweight, comfortable and hypoallergenic, with no metal parts in contact with the skin, other than the conductive silver fibres woven on the inside. Its circumference is adjustable from 120mm up to 220mm unstretched, and will stretch up to 360mm. It should be worn on bare skin, such as on the wrist, arm, ankle or foot.
The conductive fibres woven on the inside of the band connect to a snap stud on the outside to which the lightweight coiled cord connects. The cord is approximately 1.8m (6ft) long when coiled and stretches up to 6m (20ft). The cord is then connected to ground via the connection option of your choice.
See the 'Further Information' tab for details about Grounding and its numerous health benefits, including an explanation of what it does for your blood as seen in the above image.
Grounding, or earthing, refers to connecting electrically with the Earth. A growing body of research is finding numerous health benefits as a result of the physical body being grounded.
Unfortunately, with our modern rubber or plastic soled shoes and insulated sleeping arrangements, we no longer have a natural electrical connection to the Earth, unless walking barefoot.
There are two key reasons why this electrical connection is important:
The Earth is a massive reservoir of negatively charged free electrons. Without a connection to this reservoir, the cells in our body are unable to balance the positive charge which results from things like electron-deficient free radicals. The effect of excess positive charge in the blood can be seen very clearly by the way in which the cells are attracted to clump together (see below).
Our modern environment is full of a wide spectrum of electromagnetic radiation, from computers, mobile phones & masts, radio & TV broadcasts, WiFi, Bluetooth, power lines, domestic wiring, and other electrical appliances. This electromagnetic radiation induces voltages in our bodies, disrupting the trillions of subtle electrical communications which are a vital part of the function of our body's systems. By being grounded to the Earth we greatly reduce the levels of these induced voltages, as we are then effectively shielded by the Earth's large electrical mass.
On a less tangible level, it may also be that the connection we make with the Earth actually carries information, and helps align us with the greater network of intelligence of our planet.
One of the most dramatic demonstrations of the benefits of grounding is the effect it has on the blood (see image above). On the right are darkfield microscope images of blood taken from three individuals just before and after forty minutes of grounding. The before images are on the left, the after on the right. The pictures clearly show a dramatic thinning and decoupling of the blood cells. The blood samples were taken during research into grounding by Dr Stephen Sinatra MD.
The simplest way to be grounded is to go outside and place your bare feet or hands on some grass or earth, or to immerse yourself in a body of conductive water such as the sea or a mineral-rich lake.
When indoors, an Earth connection can be made by driving a metal rod into the ground outside, running a wire from the rod, and then connecting it to ourselves.
This may sound like a lot of hassle, but fortunately the majority of domestic electrical systems in the world already have such a rod and wire running indoors, connecting to the 'earth' pin on every mains electrical outlet. And rather than having to connect a wire to ourselves, a variety of conductive products have been developed, such as earthing sheets, mats, bands and patches.
The most immediately noticeable effect people report from being grounded is that they ‘feel better’. This has been described as a feeling of greater peace within themselves, feeling calmer with reduced stress levels. If there is pain present then often this is reduced or disappears completely.
People who notice negative effects from using computers or other electrical equipment report a reduction or elimination of these effects when grounded.
With regular grounding, numerous health benefits have been observed, such as:
