Can Earthing Help With Diabetes?

By Stephen T. Sinatra, M.D., F.A.C.C., F.A.C.N., C.N.S., C.B.T.

Type 2 diabetes ranks as one of the world’s fastest-growing chronic illnesses. According to the World Diabetes Foundation, the prevalence has reached epidemic proportions.

Medical experts say no cure for diabetes exists. They emphasize the need for prevention to “stem the tide.” Earthing, however, shows promise as a therapeutic strategy.

Here’s why… check out my article: “New Hope for Diabetes” at The Earthing Institute; it’s been extracted from the new Second Edition of Earthing: the greatest health discovery ever? which I co-wrote with Clint Ober and Martin Zucker.

Although we cannot offer strong scientific evidence, such as large clinical studies, to prove that Earthing has an impact on diabetes, our experience and observations over a fifteen year period clearly indicate that Earthing indeed holds great promise as a preventive and therapeutic strategy.

*Diabetics do need to exercise caution when going barefoot outdoors due to the complications associated with neuropathy / potential damage to numbed feet. My recommendation for diabetics is that they place their bare feet on the ground while sitting in a chair and only after carefully examining the ground for sharp, or other potentially harmful, objects.

    I have been using an earthing sheet for close to a year. I have had problems in the past with insomnia, but haven’t had but a few bouts of it since I started grounding while sleeping. I have read that it takes about 90 minutes before the process of neutralizing free-radicals gets going well, so you have to sleep grounded to get the best effect. It just makes sense that we are basically electrochemical systems and that by getting grounded we are cleaning out some of the bad reactions from causing inflammation. I’ve told quite a few people about earthing, but it’s difficult for some to see the big picture. Studies should be done.

    I’m a big believer in grounding and have been for many years. Noticing that growing up as a young boy and running barefoot and playing for hours outside then whenever I would cut myself or obtain foot soreness it seem to heal very quickly and my mood was always in line. Of course some of that is because my father was a man who spoke very few words to his children. Whenever he spoke, you listened and followed out what ever was ask of you. Wow! Times have changed. I’m 58 years young now and ground a few minutes each day. Try to get in 20 or 30 minutes but really depends on the weather and how cold it is. But when raining, the ground being wet and walking around in the lawn with my bare feet I can say with a doubt that my blood sugar normalizes and my sleeping falls into a deep relaxation when other times it does not. I truly believe that grounding is one healing processes that God Himself wanted for man/womankind. By doing some basic research I notice in countries where people connect to the earth several hours a day seem to never walk around with running noses and unnecessary body pains like most people in the modern world. I think that sort speaks for itself. Love your book and it has reveal much for me personally. Keep up the great work/research and may be, just may be the rest will discover what I call one of the best natural ways for resolving so many today’s illnesses.
