In this episode of Return to Nature, Melissa interviews Clint Ober about Earthing. Clint is the CEO of Earth FX Inc. and an instrumental pioneer of the Earthing movement. He spent decades working in the cable television industry, specializing in proper grounding of cable installations for safety and TV signal stability. Following a health challenge in 1995, he retired and embarked on a personal journey looking for a higher purpose in life.

It was during this time that he was led to the epiphany that humans also need to be grounded. He found that the body can utilize the Earth’s electrical potential and free electrons to maintain its internal electrical stability for the normal functioning of all self-regulating and self-healing systems.

Over the past twenty years, Clint has supported a host of research studies via the Earthing Institute that collectively demonstrate that grounding alone reduces inflammation and promotes normal functioning of all body systems. He is the co-author of the book Earthing, was featured in a documentary called The Earthing Movie, and has developed an array of Earthing products to help humans ground in the modern world.


  • What Earthing is at its basis

  • His background in the Cable Television industry and the technological innovations he was a part of

  • How and why anything electrical has to be grounded to reduce static and prevent fire

  • The health challenge that led him to retire from Cable Television and that radically changed his outlook on life

  • How growing up in Montana around Native Americans informed his life and values

  • How seeing ourselves as separate from Nature has affected the body’s natural ability to heal itself

  • The “pill for every ill” campaign of the 70’s that radically changed society’s relationship with the body and healing

  • Chronic inflammation as the root of many modern health issues

  • His time in Sedona and how it led him to the epiphany that most humans are disconnected from the Earth

  • His first prototype for a grounding pad that showed the electromagnetic interference disappeared when the body touches it and the benefits he and his friends noticed

  • His determination to understand why grounding made pain go away

  • How he implemented his first study to prove the benefits of Earthing

  • The two subjects who showed that Earthing alleviates pain whether or not EMFs are present in the home

  • The electrical nature of neutrophils, a type of white blood cell that responds to pathogens

  • How grounding neutralizes free radicals, positively charged molecules that are short an electron, and prevents the oxidation of healthy tissues responsible for chronic inflammation

  • The correlation between the onset of auto immune issues and the rise in rubber soled shoes in the 1960’s

  • The health of wild animals vs. domestic animals

  • Conductive vs non-conductive surfaces

  • The environmental toxins to be conscious of when grounding, such as glyphosate

  • How EMFs can only affect an ungrounded body

  • How grounding normalizes cortisol, which means better sleep

The reason I’ve always called [Earthing] the most important health discovery is because it’s free. It’s Nature. You don’t have to do anything except take off your shoes and stay there until the pain stops.
