Earthing - Frequently Asked Questions

The concept of earthing, also known as grounding, is based on the need for humans to connect with the earth.


WHAT EXACTLY IS EARTHING?

The short version – Studies have shown that maintaining a direct connection between your body and the Earth’s surface can be beneficial to your health. Wearing grounding sandals allows for that connection.

The long version – In your everyday lives, you’re exposed to toxins and stress. Toxins include anything from breathing polluted air, to carrying your cell phone around. Stress can come from anywhere – work, school, friends, or family. Exposure to these stresses and toxins leads to a buildup of free radicals in your body. These free radicals attack healthy cells and cause inflammation, the root of almost all medical ailments. Fortunately, the surface of the earth holds an endless supply of electrons. If you stay connected by wearing earthing or grounding shoes, these electrons are absorbed to neutralize and release the harmful free radicals in your body.


WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF EARTHING?

The benefits of earthing are countless. Recent studies have suggested that connecting with the earth’s surface and absorbing the charged electrons can assist with decreasing inflammation, better sleep, muscle recovery, and much more.

HOW CAN I BE GROUNDED?

Walking barefoot is the best way to practice earthing. When you walk barefoot, the soles of your feet are able to connect directly to the earth’s surface. This connection allows for the entry of an endless supply of electrons to your body. When walking barefoot isn’t appropriate or feasible, earthing shoes are your next best option. They allow you to maintain that connection to the earth while going about your day.


WHY CAN’T I BE CONNECTED WEARING MY REGULAR SHOES?

Traditional footwear has rubber or plastic outsoles. Because these are insulating materials, they offer no connection between your body and the earth’s surface. In fact, they do the opposite.


HOW DO JUILS WORK?

By placing copper dots through the footbeds and outsoles of our footwear, a connection is created between your body and the earth’s surface. This connection allows you to receive the same benefits of being grounded while barefoot.


WHY DOES JUIL USE COPPER IN THEIR SHOES?

There are two main reasons why we use copper in our shoes. First of all, copper is a conductive metal. In order to maintain a connection to the earth in which electrons can enter your body, there must be conductivity. Copper fits the bill here. Second of all, copper is a malleable metal. It is easy to work with, making it an easy metal to design with.


IF I WEAR SOCKS WITH MY JUILS WILL I STILL BE CONNECTED?

Yes, you will! Lucky for you, wearing socks doesn’t interfere much with your connection. Your feet naturally perspire and the resulting moisture allows for the continued conductivity and connection that you need to receive the benefits of earthing.
