Humans are electrical – we’re made up of electrons and because of this, we are conducting electricity all the time. Meanwhile, our modern world is packed with electromagnetic currents – wifi, your smartphone, your laptop, and every smart device in your home, from your robot vacuum cleaner to your voice-activated lighting. And some experts fear all this electromagnetic energy may be hazardous to your health.
Before we had so much electricity surrounding us, our bodies did not feel like they were switched on all the time. But that has changed. US-based energy expert Clint Ober has been working with scientists to study the potential health benefits of grounding. He explains, “Technology has increased our exp[osure to electromagnetic radiation. We also experience blue light from our television, computer, and phone screens, and from wi-fi and 5G networks.
He sums up the theory of grounding by explaining, “Without balancing out the positive and negative electrical currents in our bodies through regular negative ion absorption, our systems struggle to release positive charge and we become ungrounded.”
It sounds a bit crazy, but it’s not that far from the Chinese theory of Qi energy, and Tai Chi practitioners also prefer practicing outdoors to connect to the energy of the world… so let’s explore this theory of grounding a little more before we all start rolling our eyes!
