Gum disease

•  From Clover Calvet, retired teacher, Fairfield, Iowa (2019): ” I have been grounding routinely at night and even for hours during the day for about 10 years and enjoying consistently deep and restful sleep, along with good energy, and a dramatic reduction in gum inflammation.

“I had dental surgery many years ago for receding gums. As a result the teeth required cleaning every 3 months. I could almost set the calendar to how my gums felt as the 3 month intervals arrived. After a couple of years of grounding, the gum inflammation had decreased so much that I required only 6 month intervals between cleaning.   And then only once a year.  All that’s different over that period of time was grounding.

“Once during the time I have been grounding, I was suddenly feeling miserable for a couple of weeks with a lot of fatigue.  It was just after I had been hosting a house guest.  My gums started to be sore and I didn’t sleep well at all. At first I thought it was a result of too much running around with my guest, but I finally discovered that I had forgot to plug in my Earthing sheet.  As soon I reconnected, all was well again. Sleep and energy restored! Gums no longer sore.”

• From a woman in Australia: “I had been using an Earthing mat for my computer, watching television and sleeping at night for only 11 days when I had an appointment to see my orthodontist for my regular 3 monthly clean.

“I have periodontal disease and I wasn’t looking forward to it at all, as it takes a half hour or more, is very uncomfortable and makes my gums bleed.

“Well, it took less than ten minutes including having that minty stuff brushed on and an application of fluoride, no discomfort, and no bleeding.

“My orthodontist said my gums are looking good; I still have a couple of pockets but whatever I was doing, to keep on doing it as everything is looking a lot more stable.  He was happy.  I was ecstatic.”

•  From a retired 86 year-old professor has has been grounding for two years:  “With my last tooth extraction, I followed the usual procedure–extraction on Monday with the oral surgeon and appointment the next day, Tuesday, with the dentist. Overnight I slept with my face on the earthing pad on my pillow. When the dentist looked in my mouth, the tooth cavity was entirely healed and he asked me when I had had the toothpulled–last week?”

•  From a reader of the Earthing book on Amazon (March 2018):  “I feel weird writing this. Grounding works. It really does but I feel awkward telling people about it. They look at you like you’ve lost your mind. How can connecting with the earth heal your body. It sounds too simple, too easy, too good to be true. But I have to tell you it works to reduce your inflammation which is what causes so much of my pain. My osteoarthritis pain has diminished substantially, my gums are less swollen (as noticed by my dentist), and I heal very quickly from minor injuries. I know this sounds stupid and I can’t help how it sounds. But if you are in pain, you have nothing to lose. It doesn’t require health insurance, a prescription from a doctor, or any difficult treatments. Just connect with the earth and it will provide energy to heal you. Get over your embarrassment and give it a try. You won’t regret it.”
