Publisher's Summary

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.

Must Read!

What made the experience of listening to Earthing the most enjoyable?

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!

The comprehensive information and the number of experience based anecdotes about this powerful healing discovery makes this book extremely enjoyable and informative.

This book is interesting but literally nearly all testimonials. I kept waiting for more info... it didn’t come. Slightly disappointed.

Very informative!

I’m more convinced of buying earthing pads and doing natural earthing 20 min a day. I’ll be more persistent. I believe in earthing, and earthing was one of the things that healed my stomach issues before. I’m really healthy now , living a happy healthy life style!
Thank you!

Amazing Therapy!.

I learned about earthing a couple of years ago but did not get serious about learning more til finding this book. I was amazed at the information. I decided it was worth a try. I have trouble sleeping and have had anxiety since childhood. I am sleeping very deeply, falling asleep fast instead of lying awake, and I have no anxiety. That part is a miracle for me. It was worth much more than the price of this book. I have tried so many other things and spent so much money. Thank you so much to all involved.

world's longest infomercial

Grounding is real and scientifically proven, however, this book is more of a sales pitch then an educational resource.

Interesting but...

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The concept of earthing is very interesting and I appreciate the fact that this author has shared his findings. However, I stopped listening at the half way mark because it started to read more like a sales pitch/infomercial rather than an informative wellness book.

Clint Ober & His earthing technology- A Must Read

I had heard about earthing but didn't know all of the benefits and how to do it as explained in this book in great detail.
I loved Clint Ober's story - his jou6to figuring it all out.
Today I purchased 2 single size bed mats (I couldn't believe I got my husband on board with this) - and I can't wait to see our results.

Intriguing

The idea is intriguing and there seems to be some accumulating evidence and directions for new research exploration. It's great to be made aware how much we've changed our lives with artificial materials, out of sync with earth's charge and how that might affect our chemistry over the course of our lives. When I considered the possibility of grounding, here during a Wisconsin winter, inside my home, I realized what a challenge it is; and it would not have been such a challenge to my ancestors even 2 generations ago. But there are times when I feel the author has too much bias. One risk, in particular, concerned me. A way to ground the beds in our homes is to stake the earth with copper wire and run the wire inside our homes to our beds, lined with metallic duct tape. The author dismisses the concern of lightning by stating that being struck by lightning is very rare. He says that lightning usually strikes in the evening, not in the middle of the night. I wake up throughout the summer due to lightning and thunder, so his dismissiveness is not convincing. And strikes on humans may be rare, but not quite so rare for those who put themselves in harm's way by attracting lightning by adding a electrical conductor beneath their bodies. And we've all known many friends, or ourselves experienced, damage to our homes during lightning storms. So the concern does not seem so easily dismissed. The answer could be a surge protector. And maybe the risk is truly not that great. Maybe it's different for different regions in the world. However, the author did not address this issue seriously, and I thought he was dismissive without properly considering both sides of the argument.

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.

Common Sense

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!!!!

Now We Have The Science For What Has Always Bern There!

I’ve had this book on my shelf for about 2 years unread, and now having listened to the audio reading, I am about to listen all over again, before reading the text also. What illuminating content. Which resonances so true! How amazing, this knowledge that our Earth has a battery like surface what will freely give off its free electrons to any being on the plant, connecting with their naked self - the feet. I resonate profoundly with this natural process & am beginning to work more consciously with barefoot walking, and sleeping on a grounding mat. I would like to try grounding shoes next as I live in a big city. And so far, I’m noticing benefits in sleeping (duration & quality); in well-being; in feeling connected to nature (and the spirit of life).

This audio book should be listened to and studied in schools, universities, to new mothers, hospital staff & patients, everybody. The audio is an easy listen, clear, and engaging. A great way to learn & absorb even when busy and on the move. I’m in holiday right now, and holidays are beginning to have a new meaning for me in terms of how to make the best use of them. Observe sun energy yes of course, but now - use it as a retreat into places & spaces that allow ideal ground connectivity (wet sands & soil). This holiday is my healing retreat. Insulating shoes from the Earth is a real ignorance to our symbiotic relationship to life. Feet + Earth = Health & Healing. Thank you Audible for making this book more accessible, for those who are interested in the topic, and those who will discover it. I will DEFINITELY be keeping this one!

A must listen for all

Clean air, fresh water, good food, sound sleep, regular movement, postive relationships, rewarding work or hobbies AND earthing. Should have us all sorted!
