Human beings are electromagnetic. The environment we live in is electromagnetic. We are bio-electrical beings inclined to build up a positive charge while living on planet with a mild negative charge. Connecting to the earth helps us return to a neutral state naturally. This is the body grounding concept.
The first humans walked barefoot and did so for thousands of years; they had a direct connection with the earth. The surface of the earth has a very weak negative electrical charge and pulsates with different frequencies in the natural rhythm of nature. Barefoot contact with the earth evens us out and helps bring us back into balance.
Yet modern life prevents something that happened naturally for thousands of years. We wear rubber-soled shoes, we are indoors much more than we are outdoors, we carpet our floors and pave our sidewalks—we quite literally have lost a direct contact with the negatively-charged surface of the earth. Consequently, many of us experience an accumulation of static electricity in our bodies which may lead to chronic inflammation and have negative effects on our immune system amongst other issues.
Many of today’s common health concerns are due to chronic conditions and diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer, and arthritis. No matter the disease, most of these conditions share a common characteristic – inflammation caused by oxidative stress. Another big trend in medicine today is “anti-aging”. Both inflammation and aging are directly connected to large amounts of free radicals in your body.
Based on research by the prestigious Max Planck Institute for Biochemistry, positive free-flowing electrons, also known as “free radicals,” are constantly being formed in our bodies. While they have some health benefits especially in fighting infections, when free radicals strongly outnumber the antioxidants, this leads to oxidative stress that damages our cells and is linked to a number of health disorders. Chronic oxidative stress increases the risk of cancer and heart disease.
Numerous studies have demonstrated that body grounding (or earthing) helps neutralize free radicals and reduce oxidative stress leading to better recovery, less inflammation, and better sleep.
Throughout the day we’re surrounded by electronic devices like televisions, computers, phones, and microwaves. SAMINA developed the Lokosana® (from words meaning earth + health) to restore the natural, balanced electrical state of your body while sleeping, i.e., to keep you grounded.
Grounding your body while sleeping, helps restore its normal electrical state for some health benefits such as improving sleep, lessening pain, and reducing inflammation.
This illuminates the logic used by Dr. Amann-Jennson in development of SAMINA ensuring it is metal-free and why Lokosana has Swiss bio-magnets in the design to mimic the earth’s magnetic field, naturally and undistorted, for better sleep.
