I’ve been reading up and experimenting a bit with earthing, and one of the notable claims is how it can help reduce pain and inflammation. i haven’t had the opportunity to directly witness that result like i have been able to with pemf.
the common assertion (assumption? ) is often made that people are getting antioxidants directly from the earth when grounding thru negative electrons that the earth has in such abundance.
i wondered if the reduction in pain and inflammation was the effect of an antioxidant effect, but being so oblivious to the details of health, our bodies, and the physics of it all, I’m not certain.
I’ve never read here anything about pemf providing negative electrons like “the earthing people” claims the earth does for us.
i came across this study that suggests it’s the earth that our bodies use the negative electrons as antioxidants to help resolve excessive ROS that damages our body:
@Bob isn’t it a leap to conclude that people can get their antioxidants (antioxidant effect) directly from earthing? to me it seems like that’s like saying pemf provides antioxidants to the body… it’s not clear to me for earthing or pemf therapy if the reduction of pain and inflammation is due to the antioxidant effect, receiving negative electrons from the earth/pemf.
that said, there’s a lot of anecdotes from many users confirming the benefits of earthing… my sleep is still a work in progress, but I’ve noticed a few benefits in energy and quality of sleep. for one consistent factor, I’m definitely dreaming now compared to nothing before earthing.
i know you mentioned that you think pemf signals the body to respond a certain way, so I’m guessing by that statement, the source of any antioxidants produced is from the body and not pemf
I’m just wondering if you agree that that is a leap to a conclusion when there is no study confirming where these negative electrons (antioxidative effect) are really coming from. just seems like a very broad stroke when stating this…
