Throughout most of evolution humans walked barefoot and slept on the ground, largely oblivious that the surface of the Earth contains limitless healing energy. Science has discovered this energy as free-flowing electrons constantly replenished by solar radiation and lightning. Few people know it, but the ground provides a subtle electric signal that maintains health and governs the intricate mechanisms that make our bodies work - just like plugging a lamp into a power socket makes it light up. Modern lifestyle, including the widespread use of insulative rubber or plastic-soled shoes, has disconnected us from this energy and, of course, we no longer sleep on the ground as we did in times past.
Earthing introduces the planet's powerful, amazing, and overlooked natural healing energy and how people anywhere can readily connect to it. This eye-opening book describes how the physical disconnect with the Earth creates abnormal physiology and contributes to inflammation, pain, fatigue, stress, and poor sleep. By reconnecting to the Earth, symptoms are rapidly relieved and even eliminated and recovery from surgery, injury, and athletic overexertion is accelerated.
This never-before-told story - filled with fascinating research and real-life testimonials - chronicles a discovery with the potential to create a global health revolution.

"A brilliant hypothesis well-grounded in science. Highly recommended." (Nicholas Perricone, M.D., author of Ageless Face, Ageless Mind)
The comprehensive information and the number of experience based anecdotes about this powerful healing discovery makes this book extremely enjoyable and informative.
I liked the story about each of the three authors and what led them to get together to push forward with research into this discovery. I also enjoyed hearing about their personal experiences as well as their friends, clients and patients experiences which convinced me that this is a valuable discovery and one that should be taken seriously if one wants to attain or maintain pure natural health.
I highly recommend this book. This message is useful to all mankind, no exceptions.
Fascinating! Loved it! Tried it! I had to give it a try and bought a half sheet for my bed so I could be grounded as I slept. We'll it has been 6 days now and I feel awsome! Really I have energy, I just feel good. I'm looking forward to bed at night because I'm having such a wonderful, peaceful sleep. I really feel rested. I think everyone should try this!

This book confirmed my suspicions about being connected(grounded) to the Earth. Now I got proof that nature is better than pharmaceuticals! !
The narrator was soothing, I usually lay in the grass while listening to this book
Just how much can be healed with re-connecting with the earth
Yes, this research could save lives.
Reconnecting with our source... the Earth!
Would love to read and discover more about Earthing.
I was a little sceptical when I ordered this book, but as I listened i realised that the theory made a lot of sense. For months I have been plagued with neck and shoulder pain, waking up with it several times a night and waking up in the morning in agony. I had tried every arrangement of pillows possible and nothing was working. I decided to make up a makeshift earthing pad ( an old sheet, some metal tape (VERY uncomfortable but does the job) some regular copper cable and a piece of copper pipe hammered into the ground) and had the best nights sleep I have had in months. Having felt the benefits of the homemade version I am awaiting arrival of a commercially made one which I hope will be more comfortable. The testimonials were convincing, especially the Tour de France rider in 2005 who was able to compete the following day after he went through the rear windscreen of one of the support cars cutting himself up pretty badly. I have found this audio so helpful that I have ordered the hard copy too so that I can let my family read about it. Read it, do it, feel the benefits!!!!
"Educational, but full of fluff"
The first few chapters are fantastic, providing plenty of interesting facts that serve as a motivational wake up call. However, there are hours of testimonials for grounding, which I found Repetitive and unnecessary- a brief summary of each case would have sufficed. The last two chapters are also useful.
