'Earth' yourself for health benefits, say South Gloucestershire farmers

EARTHING the electricity in your body could have profound health benefits, according to a South Gloucestershire family.

Holistic champions Rob and Elspeth Taylor believe the little known science of earthing, or grounding, is the secret to good health which can improve everything from insomnia through to morning sickness and stress.

The husband and wife team run Earthing Therapy alongside the family livestock farm in Littleton on Severn.

Earthing follows the principle that our bodies and cells contain electrical energy and the rising levels of electricity surrounding us in our technological world are causing high amounts of induced voltage to build up in our bodies – with associated adverse health effects.

Just as electrical outlets are earthed to avoid the build up of charge, so earthing theorists believe we should ground our bodies to the Earth.

The simplest way to do this is to walk barefoot on the ground – grass or earth not pavements – but pads and sheets have been developed to allow you to earth yourself while indoors or sleeping.

Earthing sheets plug into the grounding port in domestic electrical sockets, grounding the human body in the same way it would ground a toaster.

Small strands of silver are woven into the sheets to conduct electrical current from the body.

Of his holistic approach, Mr Taylor, 52, said: “Western medicine has simply got it wrong. We should be looking to Chinese medicine to back it up.

“Our physical health is linked to our spiritual health.”

The couple's attitude is that humans are as electrical in nature as chemical, and both aspects should be approached in healthcare.

Mrs Taylor, 46, has overcome morning sickness and heartburn during her current pregnancy, which she attributes to sleeping on an earthing sheet.

The couple are looking for people to trial their earthing technology and can be contacted on 07980 120 209 or contact@earthingtherapy.co.uk

oh good gods.

'western medicine has it wrong ... be more holistic' - there's no such thing as "western medicine". There is science where treatments have been demonstrated in repeated blind-trials to have an impact on conditions, and there is quackery. If something in the category of category can be demonstrably proven to have benefits, it crosses the line and becomes science.

This is an advertorial to get the money of the gullible in the pockets of the shameless.

Mr Grove is obviously someone who talks in terms of proven science.For the last 27 years,culminating in my present interest in biological earthing,all my independent research has been substanciated by hard headed proven science,something which cannot be said of numerous shallow minded critics who I have encountered over that period.
On the subject of electromagnetic radiation,it is proven scientific fact that every electrical current emanates a magnetic field,which is capable of inducing a current in an adjacent potential electrical conductor.
Acknowledging this relationship,it is verifiable scientific fact, using an appropriate voltmeter, that a man standing on a small insulated podium directly underneath a 220kV high voltage conductor line can record a typical voltage reading in the nervous system of his body,inherently electrical in nature, of about 40 volts relative to earth voltage.Stepping down off this podium and making ground contact with thinly soled footwear,this voltage reading instantaneously drops down to typically less than 1 volt.This is a clear example of the effect of biological earthing.
This level of magnetically induced voltage i.e.40 volts, is more than ample to induce a constant voltage in an unenergised electric fence line underneath sufficient to deter cattle from straying,as can be confirmed by countless livestock farmers.
If a hypothetical house was located directly underneath a high voltage line,someone lying in a bed on an upper storey,and thus insulated from earth,would typically record a level of magnetically induced voltage in their body of probably more than 50 volts.This is verifiable fact.
Using the same voltmeter in a standard house,the same magnetic induction effect ,as with a high voltage line,but this time associated with the 230 volt domestic wiring behind the walls,will typically produce a voltage reading of about 4 volts in a man sleeping in a bed on an upper storey.If that man was to sleep on an earthed bedsheet linked to a copper rod planted in the ground below,the voltage reading in his body would instantly drop to near zero and it would stay that way all night as he slept.
A similar effect would occur with the man on an earthed bedsheet in the hypothetical house underneath the high voltage line.
These are examples of biological earthing,not through the feet,but through specifically designed biological earthing aids,as available from our concern.
The notion of earthing your body,in order to protect yourself from induced voltage in the house may seem bizarre at first,however it is no novelty.In the United States,where the concept originated,earthing sheets have been widely used for nearly 15 years and in many cases,the health benefits produced have been quite dramatic,as has been verified in trials conducted by a research body called the Official Earthing Institute.
The importance of earthing living space,in addition to routine earthing of the electrical system ,in order to improve health dates even further back in the UK, not with man but with dairy cows.It has long been appreciated that if all metal stallwork and metal reinforcing mesh in concrete standings in milking parlours,are comprehensively earthed,then milking cows are far less likely to suffer from neurological/psychol
ogical problems and conditions such as mastitis.
The accepted explanation as to why elimination of rogue voltage from the body through biological earthing is so effective at improving such a wide range of conditions as longstanding US research claims is because it exerts a powerful effect on the critical balance within the body of harmful free radicals and the beneficial anti-oxidants that counteract them.
This relationship,which is influenced by multivarious factors,both natural and particularly industrial,lies at the heart of all holistic health theories and has long been connected with the oriental approach to medicine ,which, unlike in the western world,has not yet succumbed to the will of the large multinational pharmaceutical concerns.
It is not gullible people ,who will take a serious look at biological earthing as a progressive natural therapy,but those who are interested in developing a comprehensive understanding of human health
.At present,people, such as Mr Grove,struggle to comprehend that narcotically dominated western medicine is riddled with smoke, mirrors and a veil of secrecy drawn over the operation of the natural detox. systems that struggle to break down these unnatural chemicals and their bewildering
collection of unexplained side effects.
