Part 7. Grounding (or Earthing) vs barefoot walking technique for NormalBreathing and Buteyko breathing courses.
The NormalBreathing became the first Buteyko course that introduced Grounding (Earthing) as a part of breathing retraining.
Dr. Buteyko and his colleagues discovered that barefoot walking is beneficial for breathing retraining. One of the written sources that mentions barefoot walking is in the article by Soulyagin S. S.
Physical factors in DVBM treatment, published in Buteyko method. Its application in medical practice, ed. by K.P. Buteyko, 2nd ed., 1991, Titul, Odessa, pages 47-53.
However, their explanation of positive effects was based on the idea of nerve stimulation on the surface of the feet. The idea of grounding the human body appeared decades later when Clint Ober discovered and started to investigate effects of electrical grounding of the human body for health benefits (e.g., to reduce insomnia). Later, positive effects of nerve and muscle cells due ot Grounding were found in clinical studies.
Teachers and students of the NormalBreathing course use a unique DIY Earthing (Grounding) method at night (during sleep) that:
1) is cheaper and simpler than any commercial (Amazon, etc.) Grounding product and
2) provides better grounding (or as good as in best clinical trials on Earthing).
