Clint Ober on the Remarkable Science of Grounding

“Earthing restores your body’s natural internal electrical stability and rhythms. It shifts the nervous system from a stress-dominated mode to one of calmness.” -Clint Ober

Clint Ober is a pioneer in the grounding movement, founder of, and CEO of Earth FX, Inc. He has dedicated his life to improving the health of others by promoting the simple practice of grounding with the earth. Clint first learned of grounding when installing Cable TV systems in the early 1960s. A decade later, he formed Telecrafter Corporation, a company specializing in the proper grounding of cable installations for safety and TV signal stability. In the 1980s, Clint turned his attention to the developing computer industry which led to an increased awareness of the need for proper grounding.

Following a health challenge in 1995, Clint retired and embarked on a personal journey looking for a higher purpose in life. During his travels, he observed people wearing plastic and rubber-soled shoes that insulate the body from the earth. He wondered if no longer being naturally grounded could affect our health. His curiosity eventually led to human studies which revealed that grounding reduces stress, inflammation, and chronic pain, improves immune function and sleep, and even reduces blood viscosity.

Clint discovered that the body utilizes the earth’s electrical potential and free electrons to maintain its internal electrical stability for the normal functioning of self-regulating and self-healing systems.

In this interview, Clint and I discuss the science of grounding, the many benefits of connecting with the earth, and how grounding can help heal and prevent chronic disease.

Grounding is an easy and free way to promote health and healing. I make a point to ground myself daily and I encourage you to do the same.
