The moment your foot touches the Earth, or you connect to the Earth through a wire, your physiology changes. An immediate normalization begins. And an anti-inflammatory switch is turned on.
People stay inflamed because they never connect with the Earth, the source of free electrons which can neutralize the free radicals in the body that cause disease and cellular destruction. Earthing is the easiest and most profound lifestyle change anyone can make.
To turn regular shoes into earthing shoes, you need to introduce a conductive material like copper or carbon into the footbed.
I was skeptical when I first heard about earthing shoes. I had experienced the positive effects of walking barefoot. Ten minutes of walking on my gravel driveway and I feel more calm, alert, and present.
But could you get similar benefits from earthing shoes?
EMF specialist Lloyd Burrell and others have tested various grounding shoes with voltage meters, and yes, they work!
Where to Get Earthing Shoes?
Several companies offer earthing shoes and grounding sandals designed specifically to ground your body to the earth. However, only one of these companies do I feel comfortable supporting:
My top recommendation for earthing shoes is Earth Runners. (affiliate link disclaimer)
This California-based company makes an innovative line of minimalist sandals using a super-thin Vibram sole, a hemp or leather insole, and a copper plug (below the big toe) with a conductive strap that connects your feet to the Earth.
Adjusting the sandal can be a little tricky, but once you do, they’re easy to take on and off.
I appreciate that they offer a hemp footbed so your feet aren’t making contact with rubber or some other synthetic material.
