Grounding: The Missing Element to Healing Autoimmunity?

One characteristic intrinsic to the human experience is connection with the earth, that indelible interdependence with a foundational and primordial element, representing the antecedents from which we came and the soil to which we will return. Grounding to the earth galvanizes our senses and reawakens our ancient connection with the limitless free electron source residing in our planet.

Free Radical Excess is a Harbinger of Disease

In essence, the ground represents a reservoir of free and mobile electrons, or negative charges that have the potential to neutralize the positively charged free radicals, or reactive oxygen species (ROS), that can damage cell constituents and lead to disease and degeneration. Free radicals, such as hydrogen peroxide, hydroxyl radical, and superoxide anion radical are inherently unstable compounds that are both byproducts of aerobic metabolism and synthesized through different physiochemical and pathological states (1).

Admittedly, free radicals play hormetic or adaptive roles as signaling molecules in redox biology for maintenance of cellular homeodynamics (2), and may have in fact evolved as an essential signal transduction mechanism to enable changes in response to accessibility of environmental nutrients (3, 4). However, free radicals present in excess lead to a condition known as oxidative stress, which is the breeding ground for autoimmune disease and other chronic conditions including diabetes mellitus, cancer, ischemic diseases such as coronary artery disease, stroke, hypertension and preeclampsia, and neurodegenerative diseases including Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s (1).
