Enhance Athletic Performance With Earthing Technology

Earthing For Athletes

Earthing is becoming recognised as a powerful tool for athletes to enhance performance and aid recovery. The 8 time Tour de France Champions ‘The Discovery Channel’ along with various Olympic swimmers, runners, weightlifters and triathletes, have all used Earthing to optimise their performance. 

The effects of Earthing have been shown to accelerate recovery from training, competition and injuries allowing one to train harder and achieve greater athletic performance. This is due to the reduction in inflammation, as seen through various imaging methods – view science. This rate of healing, restored function and tissue repair are some of the main reasons why athletes are choosing to incorporate Earthing techniques in their regimes. 

Competition and training wear the body down making recovery vital for optimal performance. If you can repair faster, which is what we see with Earthing, you are open to a higher level of athletic performance. The more time you spend Earthed, the greater your body’s ability to repair and regenerate, leading to the possibility of more frequent training and less fatigue in competition. So whether you want to recover faster from common fatigue or maximise athletic performance, Earthing is a tool that should not be overlooked.

The Benefits Of Earthing For Athletes

Reduces Inflammation

Scientifically proven to help reverse inflammation, allowing one to recover faster from fatigue and injury

Recover Faster

Earthing aids recovery, allowing one to train more, reduce risk of injury and perform to a higher level

Increased Energy

Mother Earth supplies the richest source of energy in the form of free electrons, leading to noticeable increases in energy

Calms The Nervous System

Earthing has an immediate physiological effect on the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS), switching the body to a more parasympathetic state and inducing a sense of calm

Improves Sleep Quality

Experience more time in deep REM sleep. Resets your circadian rhythm allowing you to fall sleep faster and experience greater clarity upon waking

Improves Blood Flow

Earthing improves blood flow resulting in more oxygen being delivered to the muscles, leading to less fatigue and better endurance

How To Get The Benefits Of Earthing

The easiest way to get the benefits of Earthing is to simply make direct skin contact with the Earth's surface. Walking barefoot on the grass, sand, or dirt is an excellent way to ground the body and tap into the Earth's unlimited supply of free electrons. These free electrons then spread throughout our tissues and neutralise any positively charged free radicals in the body.

However, modern living has mostly isolated us from accessing the benefits of Earthing. Everything from wearing rubber soled shoes to the use of synthetic flooring materials, all block our ability to connect with the Earth. This is where Earthing technology comes in as a revolutionary way of reconnecting with the Earths surface in the modern world.

Arguably the best way to incorporate Earthing into your lifestyle would be with an Earthing Sheet. Earthing Sheets allow you to stay grounded while you sleep, providing the body with 6-8 hours of uninterrupted grounding, at a time where the body undergoes the most healing and regeneration.

How Does The Earthing Sheet Work?

The Earthing sheet is lined with a pure silver thread which makes the sheet highly conductive. The sheet is then connected to the Earth point of any standard UK plug socket - no electricity is used.

Once the sheet is plugged into a socket via the cord provided, the sheet instantly becomes grounded to the Earth. The Earthing Sheet simply acts as an extension cord, bringing the Earth's energy inside and allowing you to stay grounded while you sleep — the equivalent of being barefoot outside. 

The sheet can be used underneath your current sheet, however, for optimal benefits, it is recommended that you make direct skin contact with the sheet.

Is It Safe?

Is It Safe?

Yes, the plug is designed only to connect to the Earth port of the socket and is not connected to the live electrical ports. The sheet therefore does not come into contact with any electricity. The cord also has a built in 100k Ohm resistor so that in the very unlikely event of an Earth fault or mis-wired socket, the protection resistance would limit the current to a safe level and prevent an electric shock.

How To Measure The Benefits

How To Measure The Benefits

The grounding effect can be measured with a multimeter device, which allows one to measure voltage in the body before and after grounding.  The video below shows how touching the Earthing sheet causes a significant drop in body voltage. 

Why is body voltage important?

When not grounded, you will generally see a high amount of volts being carried by the body and this is often further increased when there is a presence of dirty electricity in the surrounding environment. Body voltage becomes even higher as we move further away from the ground. In fact, for every meter (3.28 feet) you are above the ground, 300 volts of charge will build up in the body. This means if you are in a second story bedroom, your charge would be 1,000 volts, on average. 

As we know, carrying excess positive charge in the body can be a problem and is an important marker of inflammation. It is recommended that one adopts strategies such as grounding to combat any excess positive charge in the body and to stay in good health. When grounded, the body shares the same electrical potential as the Earth and this provides a protective effect against any excess positive charge. 



How to use the Rowland Earthing Sheet?

To ground your Rowland Earthing Sheet, attach the cord to the connection point on the sheet and insert the plug into a standard UK plug socket. The socket is only used to ground the sheet and it does not use electricity. The socket can therefore be switched off at all times and this will not affect the performance of the sheet. The Rowland Earthing Sheet simply acts as an extension cord, bringing the Earth's energy inside and allowing you to stay grounded while you sleep.

Does the Rowland Earthing Sheet use electricity?

No. The Rowland Earthing sheet does not run on electricity, nor does it even come into contact with electricity. The sheet is only connected to the Earth point of the socket, which is the top hole of a standard UK plug socket. The other two prongs are plastic and are therefore non-conductive. The socket can therefore be switched off at all times and the sheet will perform the same.

Will this expose me to ‘dirty’ electricity?

A common misconception about Earthing technology is that when you ground yourself indoors by connecting to a mains plug socket, “dirty electricity” comes through the ground cord to the Earthing sheet, and through your body which is dangerous. However, this would be impossible as there can be no current on grounding products connected to a plug socket because they are connected to one ground point only, and not part of a closed circuit necessary for a current to flow. No “dirty electricity” can flow through the Earthing sheet, and then through the body because you are not part of a closed DC circuit.

How long does the sheet last? 

As long as the washing and care instructions are followed correctly, the sheet should have no problem lasting up to three years or more. Sweat and natural skin oils can sometimes tarnish the silver over time, reducing the conductivity. However, this can be prevented by washing the sheet regularly, just as you would a normal cotton sheet (once every 2 weeks is good!). Washing strips body sweat and natural skin oils from the silver and keeps it conductive.

Is there any possibility that I will be electrocuted?

No, the plug is designed only to connect to the ground port of the socket and is not connected to the live electrical ports. The cord also has a built in 100k Ohm resistor so that in the very unlikely event of an Earth fault or mis-wired socket, the protection resistance would limit the current to a safe level and prevent an electric shock.

Can I use the Rowland Earthing Sheet on top of my current sheet?

The Rowland Earthing Sheet can be used as a bottom sheet underneath a cotton top sheet, however, the best results are obtained when the Rowland Earthing Sheet is used as a top sheet and comes into contact with bare skin, while you sleep (even if this means just your bare hands or feet are touching).

Can I use my electric blanket with the Rowland Earthing Sheet?

Yes, an electric blanket is fine, just make sure the Earthing Sheet goes on top of your electric blanket in order to achieve the full grounding effect.

How do I know if my sheet is working?

As long as your Earthing sheet is connected to an grounded plug socket, the sheet will be working properly and your body will become Earthed when in contact with the sheet. In the UK, a mains earth connection is required by law and is almost universally present. If you wish to check the wiring in your home to make sure it is correctly wired and the socket has an earth connection, you can do so with a socket tester. These can be purchased relatively cheaply online.

Does the Earthing sheet attract EMFs and ‘dirty electricity’ like an antenna?

There is a lot of confusion surrounding this topic. Earthing in fact has quite the opposite effect. For an antenna to work, it cannot be grounded. Whenever you are grounded, your body effectively produces a ‘faraday cage’ effect and will repel any electromagnetic fields (EMFs) coming from the environment and prevent EMFs from penetrating your body. It is also not possible for EMFs to be ‘pulled’ or ‘attracted’ as EMFs do not have electric charges. They cannot be attracted to anything. They simply radiate outward to infinity from an emitting source, such as electric wires, appliances, and phone masts.

Can I use an extension cord?

Yes. As long as both the original outlet and the extension both have an Earth connection (the third hole), then you can be grounded with an extension cord.

Is there a limit for how much I can use it?

No. The longer you use the sheet, the better the results. You should aim to stay grounded for as long as possible each day and night. If you think about it, before shoes and houses came along, humans were grounded most of the time!

I have a pacemaker, is it safe for me to use the Rowland Earthing Sheet?

Yes, it is safe for people with pacemakers.

I have started sleeping better using the Rowland Earthing Sheet and I feel warmer, what's happening?

This is your circulation improving. Studies on Earthing show that spending time grounded to the Earth improves blood flow around the body. This is because there is an extra negative charge to the surface of your red blood cells, which in turn stops them from clumping together and becoming sticky or viscous. One byproduct of this is the sensation of feeling warmer, especially in your hands and feet, but also throughout your body.
