Earthing & Medication By Clinton Ober

Kadek Ariani - 2014/1/03

Earthing improves the way the body functions in so many ways and it may, as a result, influence the requirement for medication. A number of people have told me they have been able to reduce their dosage. I advised them, as I do anyone, that if you are involved in any medical treatment program it is best to inform your doctor about grounding. It is highly unlikely that he or she will have any knowledge of Earthing. This is all so relatively new. 

If this is your situation you may want to show them the book called “Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever?” In any case, be alert to any symptoms that might reflect a medication overdose. Earthing doesn't interfere with medication. But your doctor may need to adjust the level you are taking. When undergoing routine medical testing, be alert to possible and surprising improvements in your results. Be sure your doctor addresses any changes that occur. Some results may indicate improved functioning and suggest lowering a dosage or even eliminating a medication.

In my experience, grounding can influence thyroid function. Individuals taking thyroid medication should watch for any developing signs of excess dosage. A number of women on thyroid told me that they began to experience heart palpitations, a sign of excess thyroid. Once their doctors reduced the dosage, the symptom vanished. The message I gather from these situations is that Earthing may help thyroid function.

Another example is Coumadin, a widely prescribed blood thinner, commonly used in the treatment of patients with cardiovascular conditions. Earthing reduces inflammation, including inflammation in the blood. Inflamed blood is thicker blood, and it’s a risk factor for clotting and cardiovascular events. I have seen many people with heart disease benefit from grounding, and our research indicates that Earthing may be extremely beneficial for the heart and blood flow, for instance, by reducing blood thickness and changing in a positive way the bioelectrical dynamics of the blood. I don’t really know any contraindications for grounding. After all, what’s involved is nothing more than being barefoot on the Earth. However, when it comes to something as critical as Coumadin, we have no direct investigational experience. For this reason, if you are someone taking Coumadin, you should first get your doctor’s approval before grounding yourself. If you do decide you would like to ground yourself, it may be prudent to do so for shorter periods in the beginning, such as walking barefoot in the park, or grounding yourself for a few hours in the evening while you watch TV. As you ground yourself, and slowly increase your exposure, monitor your situation and blood more frequently so as to determine if your dosage needs to be lowered. Ground with caution, and have your doctor regularly and carefully check your blood.
