Many people have noticed that they feel better when they spend time barefoot in the outdoors. Now we know why!
Earthing™ (re-connecting with the earth) is a recent idea. It is based on scientific evidence confirming the long-suspected necessity for barefoot contact with the earth. Modern science has determined that standing barefoot on the earth (or otherwise connecting to the natural frequencies of the earth) has a wide variety of effects on the human body.
Standing barefoot on the earth (or otherwise connecting to the natural frequencies of the earth) connects the human body with an unlimited supply of free electrons resident in and on the surface of the earth. Standing barefoot on the earth also connects the human body with rhythmic cycles of the earth’s energy field. These appear important for synchronizing biological clocks, hormonal cycles and physiological rhythms.
The cells in your body constantly draw energy from the brain and the Earth's electromagnetic field in an effort to achieve what is called "magnetic resonance". Magnetic resonance occurs when the magnetic frequency in your brain matches a harmonic of the frequencies of the other organs and body tissues.
This normally occurs for only brief periods during sleep. During these periods, your body's ability to heal, create enzymes and boost immunity is enhanced. Other vital functions related to magnetic resonance are being discovered almost daily by those working in the emerging field of quantum medicine. (Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. 00;97;6242) (FASEB J 92;(abstract 2433)(Sci Week 00;Vol4(32))

Because our modern lifestyle prohibits most people from spending time in direct contact with the earth, Barefoot Connections™ products were designed to help make the connection – in the comfort of your own home or work place. In today’s world, re-connecting with the earth (Earthing™) could be one of the most important things you do!
This simple diagram illustrates how the concept of Earthing™ works. When a person is in bed – resting or sleeping on either the Barefoot Connections™ Bed Pad or on a Barefoot Connections™ Sheet Set – the body is connected to the earth. The sheeting fabric contains a grid of conductive, inherently antimicrobial, silver yarn. The fabric snaps to a copper wire system which is connected to the earth via a cable and stainless 3mm diameter, 30 cm long rod. The connection point does not require a big area- just 3cm (1 inch) diameter - as long as the roping reaches into continuous soil. (Unfortunately a plant pot wont work, as we want a connection to the whole earth field.) The body is immediately brought to the same electrical potential as the earth and connected with the earth's vital electrons and other natural rhythms and frequencies. All of this occurs at the speed of light and without effort while in a state of rest or sleep.
