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!

Outstanding. This information really IS Important

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

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

What did you like best about this story?

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.

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.

Spoiler alert

Sit with your feet in the dirt 15 minutes a day.
Sleep with a grounding sheet and work with a grounding mat.
Why? The earth is a big pool of negative ions and it reduces inflammation when it receives our positive ions and protects us from EMF.

You can read this book for the long version of that.
There is stuff about selling grounding sheets and loads of studies that are reviewed as well.

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!

My eyes are now open to the benefits of earthing

This book is a must read/listen for anyone who wants to feel better. I now sit outside with my bare feet on the ground every morning to watch the sun rise and every evening to watch the moon rise. My mood is so much better. As an extrovert trapped in a pandemic my mood was going in a very negative direction. Earthing has changed my mood & life so much for the better. I am an anti-pharma, essential oils loving, crystal collecting, sage & sweet grass burning hippy who loves living in the city where the people and things to do are. Earthing is a great addition to my lifestyle.

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!

Awesome 🤩

Half way through this book I had already begun Earthing and buying the mats and pads etc. Fantastic read and well put across. A little deep in places but it gives you all the information you need to start out your journey to a healthier you!
I can't recommend it enough.

I am open to ‘Earthing’, did not like this book.

Chapter 1 started with the possibility that Earthing may the the panacea to cure the epidemic of inflammation causing all types of illnesses.
Whilst it is possibly one of the variables worsening inflammation, the main fault can clearly and scientifically be laid at the feet of processed food and very specifically sugar.
Chapter 2, I stopped listening and asked for a refund request the moment a link to David Avocado Wolfe was mentioned.
Any person in this modern world who believes the Earth is flat, can go straight to hell, which also is a complete figment of imagination.

Find a better book to give you information regarding Earthing.
