parameters. Upon earthing, about half the experimental subjects showed an abrupt, almost instantaneous change in root mean square (rms) values of electroencephalograms (EEG) from the left hemisphere (but not the right hemisphere) and all of them presented an abrupt change in rms values of surface electromyograms (SEMGs) from right and left upper trapezius muscles. Signal variance in rms muscle potentials also increased significantly. Earthing decreased blood volume pulse (BVP) in 19 of 22 experimental subjects (p < 0.001) and in 8 of 30 controls (p = 0.1, not significant); heart rate (HR) was not affected. From these results, it appears that earthing the human body has significant effects on electrophysiological properties of the brain and musculature, on the blood volume pulse, and on the noise and stability of electrophysiological recordings. Taken together, the changes in EEG, EMG, and BVP suggest reductions in overall stress levels and tensions, and a shift in autonomic balance upon earthing. The results therefore extend the conclusions of the previous study (Ghaly, Teplitz). 4. G. Chevalier, K. Mori. “The effect of Earthing (grounding) on human physiology, Part II: Electrodermal measurements” Subtle Energies & Energy Medicine, vol. 18, no. 3, pp. 11–34, 2007. The human body evolved while living in direct electrical contact (electrically grounded) with the earth. The question that arises is: Does loss of electrical contact with the earth affect human physiology? This double-blind study was designed to address this question by measuring several electrophysiological parameters of the body. Subjects were assigned to an experimental group that was grounded to the earth after a 28-minute baseline recording. Grounding the body (earthing) was achieved by placing electrode patches on the soles of the feet and connecting them to a conductive cable that was attached to a metal rod planted in the earth. The total recording time was 56 minutes. The control group was not grounded but “sham grounded.” Part 1 of this study presented results from measurements taken with clinical biofeedback equipment. This paper presents results obtained on Jing-Well points using the SSVP (Single Square Voltage Pulse) method. With the SSVP method we were able to corroborate results presented in our first paper with the biofeedback system. The SSVP method results are that grounding the body produces a reduction in tension (relaxation) of the internal organs and a reduction in inflammation. We also postulated that the body was 56
