Today was the second time I slept with my homemade earthing matt. I can say I only think there might be a difference in my right knee that has been swollen for some months now and it might be down some.

This morning I woke up before my alarm went off and this happens normally because of our builtin body clock most of us have, and have been using thoughtout our working lives. Even thought I set an alarm clock with my google mini, I seem to wake up still 3 to 5 minutes just before it goes off.

This is what I read this morning before writing this little article.

Why use grounding?

There’s not much research on the benefits of grounding. However, people have reported improvement for conditions such as:

  • Chronic fatigue. In the studyTrusted Source on massage therapists, many reported a decrease in their fatigue levels after four weeks of treatment with grounding mats.
  • Chronic pain. The studyTrusted Source on grounding for exercise recovery found that those who used grounding patches reported lower pain levels.
  • Anxiety and depression. In one small studyTrusted Source, it was shown that even 1 hour of grounding therapy can significantly improve mood.
  • Sleep disorders. The massage therapists also experienced an improvement in sleep length and reduce sleep disturbances with grounding therapy.
  • Cardiovascular disease. Results of one treatment studyTrusted Source found that long-term self-administered grounding therapy helped to reduce blood pressure levels in participants with hypertension.
