Using PEMF as a Grounding Technique

In this modern world, our contact with the Earth’s life sustaining magnetic field is minimal. This creates electrical imbalances in the body, including a lack of needed electrons. Grounding or earthing can help to restore the body’s electric capacity and defenses.

If you have ever walked barefoot on the beach or laid in the grass, you have experience with grounding. However, there are a wide variety of physical grounding techniques!

What is Grounding?

Grounding, also called earthing, means that your skin comes into contact with the Earth, either directly or through a conductive material. The most common grounding exercise is to walk barefoot on grass, sand, or dirt.

Our bodies are electrical. Reconnecting to the Earth’s magnetic field can help us “reset,” return to the present, or even heal.

Umm…How?

Atoms in your body have a coating of layers of electrons or shells. If the atom’s shells are incomplete, they will try to bond with another atom.
They will use the electrons in the other atom to complete the outer layer. These atoms are known as free radicals. They are very unstable and highly reactive.

The body naturally produces some free radicals. Still, factors like aging, disease, or an unhealthy lifestyle can cause free radical production to kick into high gear. The more free radicals you have, the faster your body and its cells may break down.

The Earth is like a giant battery, full of free electrons. By coming into direct contact with the Earth, your body will absorb electrons from the Earth. This can help to offset any electrical deficiency in your body.

What Can Grounding Do For Me?

Too many free radicals in the body can cause a wide range of problems, including inflammation, heart issues, diabetes, and autoimmune disorders. When you try grounding practices, often called grounding techniques, electrons from the Earth flow through your body.
This helps to neutralize the unstable, reactive free radicals. In turn, this can lead to a reduction of symptoms and sometimes even a total reversal of various issues! Studies have shown that grounding can reduce inflammation, discomfort, and fatigue. It can also improve the body’s natural healing abilities and provide you with more energy, better sleep quality, and a better mood and outlook.

How to Implement Grounding in your Lifestyle

Since there are so many benefits to grounding, it might be worth adding to your wellness regimen or self-care routine.

Option #1

If the weather is nice, enjoy and explore the outdoors. Remove your socks and shoes, and let your bare feet connect with the earth below. Walk around or sit in a chair with your feet touching the ground. Some grounding experts even say you should wet the soil for greater benefits.

Aim to incorporate at least 30 minutes of Grounding every day. If possible, it’s best to use grounding to “reset” yourself multiple times throughout the day. Use the time to listen to music, focus on your breathing with deep breath exercises, or simply just be one with your thoughts and feelings.

Try mental grounding techniques. Acknowledge five things you can see, four things you can touch, three things you hear, two things you smell, and one thing you taste. Focus on the physical sensations of your body in the present moment.

By combining self-care with this biohack, you can release tension and reduce stress, anxiety, or panic in addition to supporting your wellness.

Option #2

Invest in a grounding device. Grounding devices connect to a grounding rod or wire buried outside or a grounded electrical outlet inside the home. These devices are available as sheets, mats, and beds. You can sit or rest on the device or even place a grounding mat on your work desk.

If you connect the grounding device to an electrical outlet, be sure that your home’s electrical system is correctly grounded. You may need to hire an electrician to inspect your home’s electrical system to verify that the grounding is correct.
Alternatively, you can use grounding patches and bands for focused grounding. These devices appear to be highly effective for small areas that are weak or electrically deficient.

Option #3

The Earth naturally produces a frequency of 7.83 hertz, which some call the Earth’s “heartbeat.” You can use your Pulse PEMF device to mimic that frequency, regardless of the weather!

If you have a solid state device, set the Pulse Rate to 7.8, and turn the Strength to a comfortable level. Whole body application is best to mimic the grounding experience, so use the Bed Pad or Chair Pad if possible.

The Square Pad may be an appropriate option, too. Move it around the body during the session, and pay attention to areas that are particularly sensitive to the Pulse. The Paddles or Rings can be applied to focus on those electrically deficient areas. The Cube can also be placed under your feet to “trickle charge” as you sit throughout the day.

For mechanical or spark gap Pulse PEMF devices, turn the dial until you can barely feel the Pulse. A fast ticking sound indicates you are pulsing near a 7.8. Use our various accessories to customize your session.

Grounding is an easy way to help restore balance to the body. There are many different grounding techniques you can use, and almost anyone can do it. Just like regular PEMF usage, the benefits are limitless If you introduce grounding into your routine, let us know your results at support@pulsepemf.com.
