Barefoot Bliss: Earthing Your Way to Menopause Relief and Wellness

In the quest for holistic approaches to managing menopause symptoms, the concept of Earthing emerges as a powerful ally. Grounding oneself to the Earth’s natural energy has shown promising results in alleviating various health issues, including those associated with menopause. 


I highly recommend watching The Earthing Movie where you can learn about the science of earthing and optimum health. Earthing is nothing new or revolutionary. It’s just that a good percentage of Western civilization has forgotten the healing power of nature. The Native Americans and other indigenous cultures around the world are more attuned to the environment and what the body needs to feel and be whole. 


If you’re a city dweller like me, and have taken vacations to remote places where you’re around mountains, forests, lakes and rivers, don’t you notice how much more more relaxed you feel? There’s a good reason for that besides a change in scenary. 


If you don’t have access to a backyard or park nearby, I’ll post some links at the end of the post for where to purchase earthing products to help you ground on a daily basis. The other challenge some of you may have is living in a place where you have all four seasons and walking barefoot when it’s 22 degrees outside and eight inches of snow just isn’t practical. Although, I do see plenty of people touting cold plunges for health, but that’s another blog post topic for another time. I’ll leave that to the Polar bear club members who enjoy jumping into the Atlantic ocean in Brooklyn’s Brighton Beach in January. 


James L. Oschman, Ph.D., is President of Nature’s Own Research Association and  explores the scientific basis for complementary and alternative medicines which includes “earthing.” He is also the author of the best selling book, Energy Medicine: The Scientific Basis and Energy Medicine in Therapeutics and Human Performance. Dr. Oschman is also one of the authors of the article: Essential For Women – Your Body, Your Earth: Grounding Your Rhythms. This is good article to learn more about the relationship between your hormones and your environment. Female physiology and reproduction are regulated by an array of hormones whose concentrations vary from moment to moment in relation to rhythmic changes in our environment. You will learn here that your environment, especially your electrical environment, is vitally important in ways you probably never realized. The article I’m referencing is based on a series of studies describing the wellness benefits of contact with the surface of the Earth for women. The article is about twenty-five pages and well worth the read. 


Moving on, let’s delve into the scientific underpinnings of Earthing and how it can positively impact menopausal well-being.


The Science Behind Earthing:

At its core, Earthing revolves around the exchange of electrons between the human body and the Earth’s surface. Humans, like all matter, are composed of atoms containing electrons, which possess a negative charge. Similarly, the Earth’s surface is abundant in free electrons, creating a natural electrical potential.


Understanding Negative Ions:

Negative ions are molecules that have gained an additional electron, resulting in a negative charge. Conversely, positive ions have lost electrons and carry a positive charge. Negative ions are abundant in natural environments such as forests, beaches, and near waterfalls. Exposure to negative ions has been linked to numerous health benefits, including improved mood, enhanced immune function, and reduced inflammation.


The Role of Polarity:

Our bodies are intricately connected to the Earth’s magnetic field, forming a dynamic interplay of positive and negative polarity. When we ground ourselves, we establish a connection with the Earth’s abundant negative charge, which helps neutralize excess positive charge accumulated in the body. This rebalancing of polarity promotes optimal physiological functioning and overall well-being.


Impact on Menopause Symptoms:

During menopause, hormonal fluctuations can disrupt the body’s delicate balance, leading to a range of symptoms. Lack of grounding, exacerbated by modern lifestyles with rubber-soled shoes and insulated living environments, may contribute to heightened geopathic stress and worsen menopausal symptoms.


By reconnecting with the Earth’s energy through Earthing practices, women can counteract these effects. The influx of electrons from the Earth helps neutralize free radicals, reduce inflammation, and restore hormonal balance. Additionally, grounding promotes relaxation, stress reduction, and improved sleep quality, all of which are crucial for managing menopause symptoms effectively.


Incorporating Earthing into Your Lifestyle:

  • Spend time outdoors barefoot, preferably on grass, sand, or soil.
  • Utilize grounding mats or sheets indoors, especially during sleep.
  • Practice mindfulness and deep breathing exercises while Earthing to enhance relaxation.
  • Aim for consistent Earthing sessions to reap maximum benefits for menopausal health and overall well-being.


Earthing offers a scientifically backed approach to managing menopause symptoms by harnessing the Earth’s natural energy. By embracing this ancient practice, women can rebalance their body’s polarity, reduce inflammation, and promote holistic well-being during this transformative phase of life. So, kick off your shoes, reconnect with the Earth, and let its healing energy guide you toward menopausal harmony and vitality.


If you are interested in exploring grounding and making it a part of your self care routine, here is a link for purchasing products that can easily fit into your life. They are all reasonably priced. From mattress pads to pillow cases, you can ground yourself and experience a deeper and more restful slumber and more balanced hormones! 


Please let me know and post in the comments area if you currently use grounding products and how it’s helped you or if you purchase a product and want to share your experience! I love hearing from readers 🙂
