One small step for man, one giant leap for healthcare.

New research has confirmed the unexpected, and what may have been known by civilizations throughout history, that the surface of the Earth has healing power--like a gigantic treatment table. In this breezy and uplifting film, National Geographic wildlife filmmaker, Steve Kroschel, takes a personal journey to test an outrageously simple and "too good to be true" healing concept: that bare-skin contact with the Earth has profound curative effects. Kroschel introduces this concept of "Earthing" or "Grounding" to his fellow residents of Haines, Alaska (population 1,700), where many endure common ills (arthritis, insomnia, paralysis) and suffer disabling pain. Starting with his own pain relief, Kroschel witnesses and films surprising, miraculous healings. Even an orphaned moose calf, named Karen, participates in the healing. Kroschel's home-brewed movie turns into a serious chronicle of a local phenomenon and draws the attention of Apollo astronauts, doctors, scientists, researchers and skeptics--leading some scientists to proclaim grounding to be the "greatest health discovery of all time". This eye-opening film may very well change the way you regard the earth beneath your feet.
