Knee Pain

● From Fran Dalton, April 2022: “a couple of years ago I had a fall which resulted in me having stitches in my knee.

“The wound itself cleared up pretty quickly but after some time my knee began to ache so badly it affected my walk, I had a pronounced limp.

“I was unable to sleep which made me so tired and lacking in energy which definitively affected my mood, I felt very low. I had tests and xrays, but no reason could be found for the symptoms I was experiencing.

“I was recommended to try the Elite Earthing bed mat, Universal Mat and patches to ground myself. Within a week to ten days the quality of my sleep was so good and the pain in my knee definitively lessened.

“The improvement in my sleep and knee pain has helped lift my mood. It wasn’t long before I was back to my old self again and able to get my life back. The more I ground myself the better I feel so I am committed to this method of pain relief and look forward to further improvements.

“Thank you!”

● “For eight years I suffered 24/7 from considerable leg pain due to neuropathy. After some 18 to 20 months of sleeping grounded on an Earthing sheet, my legs are completely healed of the neuropathy. For two and half years now, I’ve had no problem with neuropathy. What worked for me may not work for everyone, but this is my result. I have a left shoulder that has been seriously injured three times in my life, and I attach three or four grounding patches to it each night as I sleep and by the next morning 90-95% of the pain is gone. I’ve also used the patches to relieve the pain of a bum knee, back pain, headaches, sore throats, pain in my hands, and to prevent leg cramps. When I feel cramping coming on, I quickly attach an Earthing patch to the muscle in question and the tendency to cramping immediately stops.” (U.S.)

● From a review of the Earthing book on Amazon (2020): “So I thought this was a bunch of quackery. However, after watching Clint’s documentary, decided to try this earthing thing out. I’ve been earthing almost every day by going barefoot on the grass and dirt. Miraculously, my painful and swollen knee has improved and swelling gone down? Also, I’ve lost some weight? I’m thinking because earthing reduces stress and in return reduces cortisol. I suffer from arthritis pain throughout and now I hardly have any? I am convinced this is the real deal. Have made earthing a Lifestyle.”

● “I have a sore knee nearly always from riding thousands of racehorses over the years with very short stirrups. I have been using a grounding band just above my knee at night…and whilst doing yoga. The pain is nearly gone altogether… amazing!” (Australia)

● From a 50-year-old male: “My knees feel they are 20 years old. I have no aches and pains anymore. My sinuses and allergies are 99% better than they were before Earthing. There can be no other reason for these changes in my health except grounding.”

● From an Arizona sales manager of fitness equipment: “Three weeks ago I started grounding since with the sheet at night and the mat by day. The effects have been nothing short of miraculous. I had a tibial plateau (shinbone) fracture about 13 years ago. It was cracked in 5 places on the articular surface of the tibia. Over the years it had become more arthritic so I treated it with a daily intake of chondroitin and glucosamine. This had enabled me to continue to be active, but over the last year or so it was becoming more inflamed and painful. If I were to skip more than a few days of my supplement intake, the knee would be very painful and limit my activity level.

“The first day I started grounding I decided to stop taking the supplements and see if the grounding alone would have a positive effect. After a few days of grounding had gone by I was dumbfounded by the lack of pain in my knee so I decided to test it more. I hadn’t been able to run much lately because of the pain and swelling so I decided to take a run on the street as this would definitely cause some irritation and pain. Well, the next day no pain!

“I have a background in exercise physiology so the science of this made sense to me but I couldn’t wrap my head around the fact of pain for 13 years and in a matter of a few days it had disappeared. I was beginning to think this was all in my head!

“So to test it more, I decided to get a real litmus test by doing squats in the gym which always jacks up the knee and of which I hadn’t done in several months to a year. To my utter surprise and delight, no ensuing pain or inflammation! I’ve continued to test it with additional running and another bout with squats with the same result……no pain or inflammation! It has been 3 weeks now without any supplementation with virtually no discomfort or inflammation in my knee at all. I seriously am pinching myself!

“In addition, I have experienced less post exercise muscle pain from my workouts. This became very evident when I embarked on the squat workout. Anyone who works out will know, when you workout a muscle group hard that you hadn’t worked out in months, like I hadn’t with the squats, better be ready for some serious muscle soreness the next 3 days. Well, I had very minimal muscle pain day one and NONE the 2nd, 3rd days. Pretty amazing! I have also experienced deeper sleep, an overall calmness and a more balanced energy throughout the day.”

● From Janhavi Patankar, 52: A milestone for me after 8 long years of severe knee pain, Plantars feitius, lower back pain and spondylitis! After a brisk 30 minute walk on concrete walking path to toughen my feet , a 20 minute routine of jogging and 4 sprints of 15 mts each on COLD WET DEW filled grass followed by a 20 minute meditation sitting Grounded, I healed all the muscles and joints by simply touching them on that grass.It gave an instant healing and a feeling of relaxation and a complete rejuvenating feeling ☘..I’m 52 years ‘Young’…again!! I was a track and field State level athlete in my school n college days where we trained on NATURAL GRASS in those days which actually gave no injuries as such.At that time we had training sessions of Barefoot running too.. but with time I wore shoes and ran on hard surfaces which unknowingly made me practically crippled .I had never felt so helpless until I accidentally started walking in the rain on mud and grass BAREFOOT simply to feel more connected with the Earth.Within 20 days all my 8 year long aches and pains simply disappeared!! Then I stumbled upon CLINT OBER’S full Earthing movie ..and since then there has been no stopping…

● From Dwight Mangum, Feb 2022: “I had a knee they said I would no longer be able to walk on. I also had four collapsed disc in my lower back. It took two years or less to heal everything. The knee got better with no pain in a year. I was running two miles a day in two years. I found out about the back when I pulled a muscle around the 2.5 year mark.”

● From Dwight Mangum, Feb 2023: “There is a break-in period when beginning and yes, you will feel a little pain resurface briefly. I sometimes felt like there was a small DC voltage tickling me but it was gone and more than likely nothing dangerous at all in a week. My knee started hurting a little but it replaced all the missing cartilage in two years and I was running 2 miles a day at 60 on the knee they said I would never walk on again.”

● From John P. Ruggieri, 50, April 2022: “I stay grounded as much as possible. I use original Earthing and Ground Therapy products. I use the Earthing Product Tester to ensure my gear is working. I have the Earthing Elite mattress cover and pillow cover on my bed, a Universal mat on my chair at the kitchen table and computer, a grounded pillow on the couch, and one of their large work mats on the kitchen. I lost the shoes and spend as much time as I can grounded outdoors in the sun. I slept better that very first night. It took a cumulative process but slowly things got better and better. It took three years for my immune system to fix my knee which was injured as a teenager.

● From Brenda Perry, December 2023: “I felt compelled to post my testament this morning. We have had horrible weather lately. Just went through a hurricane. No opportunities to ground outside. And for some reason I haven’t used my grounding mat for a couple of weeks. I had so much pain in my knee yesterday. I could lift my leg. The pain was horrible. I slept on my grounding pad last night and the pain is gone. I am on the treadmill now. YES IT WORKS!!”
