We have had many reports of people putting bone back on after grounding for an extended period. We believe that grounding can protect against osteoporosis. One woman told us that her doctor took her off of Fosamax (an osteoporosis drug. The doctor said she had been laying on bone and that her bone density had significantly improved. She had been grounded for a couple of years.
● From a woman in 2013: “Two weeks ago, my mom, age 86, fell on the ice but did not break any bones. She has been sleeping grounded about 2 1/2 years now. As time goes on, it may come to light that earthing makes your bones stronger (higher percentage than others in the same age group).”
● From a woman, 56, in England in 2015: “I broke my back a few years ago and was, at the time, diagnosed with osteoporosis. I refused biphosphates and calcium and was too lazy to take up weight-lifting. However, I had my bones scanned again recently and the results showed a remarkable improvement. I no longer have osteoporosis! I have been grounding for about a year.”
● MP, 65, retired nurse, Indio, California (2020): “When I first began grounding I did not have the immediate results that I have read about others having. In fact I felt worse. I had more fatigue & pain. I have an autoimmune condition (Ankylosing Spondylitis), chronic pain, as well as migraines. You encouraged me to hang in there, that it would get better. I continued grounding night & during the day when I laid down. I have been grounding almost 3 months. The changes have been very gradual.
“When I started I was walking 20 minutes a day & struggling to do that due to overwhelming fatigue and pain. I have osteoporosis & my doctor has been pushing me to go on medication for it. I have resisted because of all the side effects associated with these drugs. I have been taking supplements to strengthen my bones, though my doctor said that it won’t make much difference. I was on supplements before my bone scan 2 years ago & my results showed my bones density was less.
“I had read that grounding may help with osteoporosis so that was my motivation. I kept putting off my bone scan to allow more time to ground. Then my doctor refused to treat me any longer if I didn’t get my repeat scan & go on meds. So I had my scan. I was shocked to learn that I no longer have osteoporosis!
“Needless to say I am a firm believer in the benefits of grounding after only 3 months. Can’t wait to see how much better I get as time goes on!”
● From Karen Ball, 63, massage therapist, Beaverton, OR: “In 2011, I was in terrible shape. I had been suffering with serious insomnia for 22 years, sleeping maybe 2 -3 hours on average per night. I had developed an inability to break down carbohydrates and had other digestive difficulties, mild depression, bloating, 15 years of hot flashes, bone density issues, and severe arthritis and muscle contraction in my right hip that caused pain and restricted movement. To top it off, at 244 pounds, I was 80 pounds overweight. It took 6 nights before I got a good night’s sleep. But from August of 2011 to the present, August of 2013, I have had 4-8 hours of sleep every night except for 2 nights. In that time, I’ve had more than 40 nights where I slept through the night through without getting up to urinate. The better sleep is a big deal. I can only lose weight when I sleep five hours or more. I have now lost 40 pounds, and basically by not doing anything, just sleeping more. I need to lose another 40, and to do that, I’ll need to stop eating bread when I shouldn’t. I hadn’t realized how depressed I was until after I started Earthing and having a growing sense of well- being and return to health. It is a wonderful feeling. I can do so much more now, although I am aware of my limitations. If I do too much or eat too much bread, then I can only get about 4 hours of sleep. That used to be my maximum but not enough to lose weight. I love the fact that my maximum is my minimum now. My capacity keeps growing and the improvements continue. Clearly the more time I spend Earthed, the better I feel.”
