Fibromyalgia is a condition that causes a person to suffer pain all over their body including in their muscles, joints, and tendons. The cause of fibromyalgia is unknown, and its duration is generally long-term. Some triggers of the condition include fatigue, depression, anxiety, sleep issues, and an abnormal pain response. The treatment for fibromyalgia includes therapies to increase coping abilities and stress relief management. Drug treatments include pain medications, antidepressants, anti-siezure drugs, and sleeping aids.

Though previous studies regarding the benefits of earthing have not specifically examined how it can affect fibromyalgia, researchers have noted that study participants who suffer from the debilitating condition often point out an improvement in their symptoms. In the book Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever?, authors include a testimonial from a woman who suffered with fibromyalgia. She reports that from the very first time she slept grounded, she had a significant change in her symptoms. For the past twelve years, she has slept grounded every night, and even uses earthing mats on her couch for extra grounding time while she watches television or relaxes. She says she is able to sleep eight full hours each night, and sometimes even longer. She reports that though she sometimes still has twinges of pain, she never suffers the way she did before she started earthing.

It’s stories like this that make encourage scientists to continue to try and understand just how important our connection to the earth.
