Read part 3 of Cardiologist Stephen Sinatra’s interview on his new book Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever?
Learn why standing barefoot on the Earth may be the most important health change that a person can make. Read science that shows how the human body must receive electromagnetic energies from Earth to stabilize the body’s fundamental biological rhythms and restore all the body’s systems to optimal health.

For anyone practicing Sun Gazing – where Earthing (standing barefoot on the Earth) is necessary – I highly recommend this reading this article and buying Dr. Stephen Sinatra’s book Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever?.

Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever? Part 3

by: Stephen Sinatra, M.D., F.A.C.C.

The Inflammation Connection
In 2001, I met Clint Ober for the first time at an energy medicine conference in San Diego. I was immediately intrigued by his concept and felt that a door to a new healing frontier had been pushed open. Clint told me he was “just” a cable TV guy who had made a discovery he felt could help relieve suffering. I was very impressed by his integrity, intentions, and knowledge.

After meeting Clint I was curious as to whether there was an inflammation connection to his discovery. I was particularly interested because cardiologists, who had been programmed for many years to regard cholesterol as the boogeyman of cardiovascular disease, were now learning that the real cause could be chronic inflammation.

Clint didn’t know if Earthing could reduce inflammation. But he said he would find out. And he did, pretty much through his own research, and later with the help of a brilliant biophysicist, Jim Oschman, Ph.D., the author of Energy Medicine: The Scientific Basis.

Electrical engineers know that the surface of the Earth is pulsating with negatively charged free electrons. Doctors and medical researchers are not familiar with this, but they know that the body is electrical in nature, and that free radicals are positively charged fragments in the body at the core of inflammation, tissue destruction, and disease.

Clint theorized that if Earthing could reduce pain, as he had witnessed many times, it must come from reducing or neutralizing the positively charged free radicals causing the pain during the inflammatory process. The free electrons must be putting out the fire. The research that Clint did, with the help of Dr. Oschman, established an intriguing hypothesis for Earthing: in direct contact with the Earth – barefoot or through one of Clint’s continually evolving sleeping devices – the free electrons flow into the conductive circuitry of the body and snuff out inflammation.

Inflammation causes pain. People with pain who are grounded experience less pain. To me, this was a landmark idea, a major breakthrough. This was literally electromedicine from the ground up, a secret from Nature right under my feet. Clint later worked with an expert in thermography who documented, with dramatic imaging, the reductions in pain that patients were having. Thermography is a noninvasive, computerized technique that analyzes skin surface temperatures as an indicator of possible disease or injury.

The widely-studied procedure is commonly used to help diagnose injuries, headaches and pain syndromes, neck and back problems, as well as breast cancer, diabetes, and nervous system and metabolic disorders.

The first image below is a thermographic example of how Earthing reduces inflammation. The second is a photographic documentation of dramatic improvement of a non-healing sore on the foot.

(Above) Inflammation as seen through thermography. Thermal imaging cameras record tiny changes in the temperature of the skin to create a color-coded image map. Because tissue damage causes increased heat, abnormally hot areas indicate inflammation. The images here were taken only thirty minutes apart – before (left) and after grounding (right). They illustrate a rapid resolution of inflammation and help explain the impact of Earthing on chronic pain, stiffness, and a variety of symptoms.

(Above) These two photographs show the effects of grounded sleep on a 47-year-old male with diabetic neuropathy. After three nights, he reported significant relief of pain and improved sleep. After 7 nights, as the image on the right shows, there was substantial reduction in redness and inflammation, indicating better circulation. The patient also reported improvement in energy levels and an overall sense of “increased well-being.

Stephen Sinatra, MD, FACC, FACN, CNS, is a board-certified cardiologist and certified bioenergetic analyst with more than 35 years of experience in helping patients prevent and reverse heart disease. His specialty is integrative cardiology that combines conventional medical treatments with complementary nutritional and psychological therapies.

Now retired, Dr. Sinatra lectures widely on the metabolic approach to cardiovascular disease and electromedicine. His latest book is Earthing:The Most Important Health Discovery Ever? In it, he introduces the fascinating discovery of major health benefits resulting from direct physical contact with the Earth’s natural, subtle electric energies.
