The Applewhite Study of The Umbrella Effect of Earthing

- 2014/11/22

A study published in 2005 by electrical engineer Roger Applewhite confirmed two highly significant facts:

1. Electrons move from the Earth to the body and vice versa when the body is grounded. This effect is sufficient to maintain the body at the same negative-charge electrical potential as the Earth. We hypothesize that this flow of free electrons into the body is the mechanism by which inflammation is brought down.

2. Grounding powerfully reduces electromagnetic fields (EMFs) on the body.

The Applewhite study showed the protective effect of Earthing against environmental electrical fields. Another way to think of this is as an umbrella effect.

Let us look for a moment at the electrical properties of the Earth's surface and the way the Earth's energy influences our biology. In his classic 'Lectures on Physics' from the early 1960s, Nobel Prize physicist Richard Feynman describes the Earth's subtle energies. The surface, as we have seen, has an abundance of electrons, which give it a negative electrical charge. If you are standing outside on a clear day, wearing shoes or standing on an insulating surface (like a wood or vinyl floor), there is an electrical charge of some 350 volts between the Earth and the top of your head (see drawing, left) if you are 5 feet 9 inches (1.75 m) tall. Keep in mind it is about zero volts at ground level.

You might ask, "If there really is a voltage difference of 350 volts from head to toe why don't I get a shock when I go outside?"

The answer is that air is a relatively poor conductor and has virtually no electrical current flow. If you are standing outside in your bare feet (see drawing, right), you are Earthed; your whole body is in electrical contact with the Earth's surface. Your body is a relatively good conductor. Your skin and the Earth's surface make a continuous charged surface with the same electrical potential. 

Also notice in the drawing on the right that the charged area is pushed up and away from your head if you are grounded. Any object in direct contact with the Earth - a person, a dog, a tree - creates this shielding effect. The object is essentially residing within the protective umbrella of Earth's natural electrical field. This protective phenomenon also occurs inside your house or office. if you are connected to the Earth with an Earthing device like a bed pad.
