Who are we? What makes us unique? Our mission.
Grounded.com was started by Dr. Stephen Sinatra as a way to share his research and knowledge about the amazing benefits of Grounding. His intention was to offer a fully comprehensive site that provided products, information, and resources for people looking to "get Grounded". Throughout his 25 years of practicing integrative cardiology, Dr. Sinatra was always receptive to new healing modalities. He met Clint Ober, the founder of Earthing, at an electro-medicine conference in 2001 and was intrigued by the concept of Grounding and the initial positive studies that had been performed. Click here to view the research. After using the products, hearing the testimonials, and personally participating in additional Earthing research studies, Dr. Sinatra found that Grounding has amazing potential not just for cardiology, but also for the healing community at large. For Dr. Sinatra, the most natural anti-inflammatory and the ultimate antioxidant, is Earthing.

We sell Grounding products and educate people like you about getting Grounded. Our mantra is "Get Grounded".
What is this Grounding stuff?
Well, Grounding is a really simple thing. So simple, it can even be confusing! Grounding simply means being connected to the Earth, literally touching it. It doesn't cost anything; it's free! You have already Grounded many times in your life. Any time you have walked barefoot in the grass or on the beach you were absorbing the Earth's healing energy through your feet. This energy is subtle so you probably didn't notice much when walking barefoot. But subtle is important!
Our bodies know this energy because we evolved touching the Earth. We used to walk barefoot all the time and slept right on the ground. Being connected to the Earth's energy helps bring us back to our natural electrical state which is vital to our health as we are electrical beings! Connecting to this energy and regaining balance is one of the keys to fostering optimum health. The Earth is quite possibly the biggest "anti-oxidant" and when we touch it our bodies are flooded with electrons which our bodies use to counteract free radicals or inflammation in the body. Grounding immediately equalizes your body to the same energy level as the Earth. This results in synchronizing your internal biological clocks, hormonal cycles, and physiological rhythms. The profound effect of Grounding can provide healing, calming and balancing effects on the physical, mental and emotional bodies.
Our Grounding products or "barefoot substitutes" as we like to call them, allow you to conveniently Ground yourself when indoors because getting outside to walk or sit barefoot on the ground is a luxury many of us do not have due to our busy lifestyles, or weather that is not permitting. They do not utilize electricity, but rather via the ground port of home outlets, electrons from the Earth are able to pass from the ground wire of the home (or outlets can be bypassed by utilizing a simple accessory – the Eathing Ground Rod System), into our products and then into the person touching the products. These barefoot substitutes are durable, safe, and easy to use and clean. Products consist of bands, patches, bed sheets, and foot and desk pads. Click here to view all our products.
