Why You Should Listen:

In this episode, you will learn about the benefits of earthing.

About My Guest:

My guest for this episode is Clint Ober. Clinton Ober is CEO of Earth FX Inc., a research and development company located in Palm Springs, California. He first learned of grounding when installing Cable TV systems in Billings, Montana in the early 1960’s. A decade later, he formed Telecrafter Corporation and built it into the largest provider of cable installation services in the United States. This company specialized in proper grounding of cable installations for safety and TV signal stability. In the 1980’s, he turned his attention to the developing computer industry and partnered with McGraw-Hill to distribute live digital news services, via cable, to PCs. This led to the development of the first cable modem and an increased awareness of need for proper system grounding. Following a health challenge in 1995, he retired and embarked on a personal journey looking for a higher purpose in life. During his travels, he noticed people wearing plastic and rubber soled shoes that insulate the body from earth. He wondered if no longer being naturally grounded could affect us. The question led to an experiment that suggested grounding alone reduced chronic pain and improved sleep. Thereafter he developed a working hypothesis: Earth grounding the human body normalizes functioning of all body systems (Corollary: The body utilizes the earth’s electrical potential and free electrons to maintain its internal electrical stability for the normal functioning of all self-regulating and self-healing systems). Over the past twenty years, he has supported a host of research studies (Earthing Institute) that collectively demonstrate that grounding alone reduces inflammation and promotes normal functioning of all body systems.

Key Takeaways:

  • What is earthing (or grounding), and why is it important for health?
  • Is there a difference in disease prevalence between wild and domestic animals?
  • What is the earth charge, and what role does it play in grounding?
  • How might grounding lead to reduction in inflammation and pain?
  • Are the potential inflammation-reducing effects of grounding observable with thermography?
  • How does grounding affect sleep and cortisol regulation?
  • Can grounding be used as a tool to mitigate exposure to EMFs?
  • How might grounding normalize blood coagulation and increase oxygenation?
  • Can grounding lead to increased ATP production and improved mitochondrial function?
  • How long should one be grounded each day?
  • Why might some with conditions such as Lyme disease initially feel worse with grounding technologies?
  • Is there a difference between grounding with an electrical socket as compared to a grounding rod in the earth?
