In the past year, grounding, or “Earthing” as it is sometimes called, has grown in popularity. There are many reasons for this, not the least of which is grounding's apparent effect upon blood pressure. And for readers of this blog, that means grounding has a strong potential to affect heart palpitations in a good way. I have personally been grounding for almost a year now and can attest to the fact that my own blood pressure has dropped from 145/95 to 128/80 on my last checkup. The study noted below is just one of many studies pointing to the efficacy of grounding. The best part is that grounding equipment will cost you about $25 (for the band and cord) and will last for years! In future articles, I'll discuss other benefits of grounding as they relate to the prevention of heart palpitations.
Research conducted during the last 15 y has demonstrated that grounding (Earthing) the human body to Earth’s surface charge generates multiple beneficial physiological effects. Anecdotal reports include lowering of high blood pressure (BP).
To test such reports, a pilot case history series was undertaken with hypertensive patients in a single physician cardiology practice.
Patients grounded themselves at home for at least 10 h/d for several mo.
BP was measured at baseline in the clinic, and then, after starting grounding, 3 subsequent times in the clinic again at approximately monthly intervals. Patients were also given a BP monitor and were asked to measure their BP on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays at 8:00 AM and 8:00 PM for 12 wk.
All 10 patient measurements were found to be significantly improved at the end of the trial period, and some, well before the end. Systolic levels decreased during this time, ranging individually from 8.6% to 22.7%, with an average decrease of 14.3%.
