Today we received a package in the mail from Earthing.com. Earthing is the idea that grounding helps to protect the health of the body. According to Earthing.com’s website, "that direct connection to the Earth’s ground energy has a powerful and positive influence on the delicate balance between health and illness, and the prospect of living longer and better. "
We were sent one of these to check out after I had inquired with Martin Zucker about doing an interview with him about cat allergies, as requested by MeLinda of Merlin’s Hope Ragdoll and Maine Coon Rescue.
Marty is now involved with Earthing.com and co-wrote the book about Earthing. So we got to talking and he offered to send one for me to check out.
We received a pure carbonized rubber conductive mat that people generally use as a floor mat.
Before Marty sent it, he mentioned in an e-mail, "It works quite well for indoor pets who have no access to the Earth’s ground energy outside. They will often plop right on it and get energized. From the feedback we have, animals are drawn to the energy. You may see some results particularly for older infirm animals."
You’ll see in the video below that Trigg, my blue lynx mitted Ragdoll cat, was immediately attracted to it and laid on it before I even plugged it in!
