The recent electrification of our world presents us with a lot of unknowns.
Early research into the effects of electromagnetic radiation and excess charge in the human body have produced some concerning but also very promising results. How we use and develop this knowledge to improve our urban infrastructure and the future well-being of our communities is up to all of us.
“Accumulating experiences and research on earthing, or grounding, point to the emergence of a simple, natural, and accessible health strategy against chronic inflammation, warranting the serious attention of clinicians and researchers. The living matrix (or ground regulation or tissue tensegrity-matrix system), the very fabric of the body, appears to serve as one of our primary antioxidant defense systems. As this report explains, it is a system requiring occasional recharging by conductive contact with the Earth’s surface – the “battery” for all planetary life – to be optimally effective.”https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4378297/
“Ongoing research shows that Earthing augments the physiology’s infrastructure from the foundation up. As the burden of global disease and pain conditions grow increasingly larger, it is more necessary than ever to promote effective prevention and lifestyle practices. Such practices should include Earthing. Earthing means a return to a forgotten and vital aspect of Nature – Earth’s healing properties – that has great potential to both prevent and treat common disorders affecting modern society.”https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/31831261
“Grounding reduced the loss of creatine kinase from the injured muscle cells, indicating a healing effect.”https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26443876
“Grounding increases the surface charge on RBCs and thereby reduces blood viscosity and clumping. Grounding appears to be one of the simplest and yet most profound interventions for helping reduce cardiovascular risk and cardiovascular events.”https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22757749
“ Pleasant and positive moods statistically significantly improved among grounded-but not sham-groundedparticipants. It is concluded that the 1-hr. contact with the Earth improved mood more than expected by relaxation alone. More extensive studies are, therefore, warranted.”https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25748085
Copper was very popular throughout history - with an extremely important area of use being health! In recent years, scientists have started to closely study and better understand copper. They’ve discovered some of the reasons why our ancestors found copper to be so beneficial and ways that we can better use copper in our societies today.
