Here’s What Happens to Your Body If You Walk Barefoot

7 What does it mean to “ground” yourself?


Earthing also called “grounding,” means making contact with the earth’s surface electrons by walking barefoot outside or sitting, working, or sleeping indoors while connected to conductive systems, some of which have been patented, that transfer energy from the ground into the body.

6 The results of studies and testing


More and more studies prove that the earth’s electrons can help heal and improve health in many ways. These include less pain, better sleep, thinner blood, less inflammation, less stress and cortisol, faster healing of sore muscles, and better parasympathetic systems (blood flow, respiration, oxygenation of the blood, and pulse rate).

In the studies, the people took barefoot walks outside or were connected to grounded conductive devices. Most subjects saw big changes in their parasympathetic responses in as little as 30 minutes. They also saw good results in a few weeks with inflammation, stress reduction, cortisol levels, etc.

5 More studies have produced even better results


There have also been other studies about osteoporosis, how glucose is controlled, and how the thyroid works. Polish doctors K. Sokal and P. Sokal, who are cardiologists and neurosurgeons, did a series of studies with a copper conductor in contact with the earth. They found that this could change how the body reacts. Walking barefoot is actually beneficial in treating and preventing osteoporosis, diabetes mellitus, and thyroid disease.

Sokal and P. Sokal did other tests associated with stimulating the immune system and making the blood thicker, which are problems for people with diabetes and heart disease. Even though these tests show that many of the body’s systems are working well, the results are still uncertain. Before it can be completely proven, scientists will need to do more tests on many people. If going for a walk in the grass, on the beach, or in the dirt could help your health or keep you from getting sick, it would be well worth it.

4 Benefits of Earthing


Dr. Jonathan Kaplan, a foot and ankle surgeon and specialist at Hoag Orthopedic Institute, explains how Earthing makes your feet healthier:

  • It improves control over where to position your foot when it lands on the ground.
  • Your balance is improved.
  • It makes you more aware of your body in relation to your surroundings. This is one reason why toddlers shouldn’t wear shoes when they first start walking.
  • Improving how your feet work helps keep your knees, hips, and core in the right place and moving the right way.
  • It stops your foot and ankle joints from moving too much and in too many directions. This gives your ankle and leg muscles and ligaments the strength and stability they need.
  • Fewer problems like bunions and hammer toes are caused by shoes that don’t fit right.
  • This helps improve the strength of the lower back by making the legs stronger.
