October 21st, 2019
Grounding has become massive international movement that has revolutionized health and healing for many.
Today, I’m honored to talk to the man who made this movement a possibility, and he shares the story behind the incredible discovery he made.
How did he get started in grounding?
How did he make the transition from corporate to nature?
What did he learn from his own health crisis?
On this episode, I’m joined by the leader of the grounding movement and CEO of EarthFX, Clint Ober, who shares on his amazing life story and the journey he has taken.
If you put an electrode patch on the body and stick it in a ground rod, pain dissipates.

Listen to the full episode:
At the start of the episode, we talked about how Chris had a medical crisis, the experimental surgery that saved his life, and what the experience taught him about the human body.
Next, we talked about how that near-death experience led to him changing his entire life, and how he escaped the prison of consumerism.
We also talked about how Clint discovered grounding, the results he got, and how he started helping other people.
We also discussed;
- How national parks are the only places to connect with nature
- How the broadcasting industry inspired Clint’s discovery of grounding
- The benefits of grounding
Clinton Ober is CEO of EarthFX Inc., a research and development company located in Palm Springs. He first learned of grounding when marketing and installing Cable TV systems in Billings, Montana in the early 1960’s. A decade later, he formed Telecrafter Corporation and built it into the largest provider of cable installation services in the United States. This company specialized in proper grounding of cable installations for safety and signal stability. In the 1980’s, he turned his attention to the developing computer industry and partnered with McGraw-Hill to distribute live digital news services, via cable, to PCs. This led to the development of the first cable modem and an increased awareness of the need for proper system grounding. Following a health challenge in 1995, he retired and embarked on a personal journey looking for a higher purpose in life. During his travels, he noticed people wearing plastic and rubber soled shoes that insulate the body from earth. He wondered if no longer being naturally grounded could affect us. The question led to an experiment that suggested grounding reduced pain and improved sleep. He developed a working hypothesis: Grounding normalizes functioning of all body systems (Corollary: The body utilizes the earth’s electrical potential to maintain its internal electrical stability for the normal functioning of all self-regulating and self-healing systems). Over the past eighteen years, he has supported a host of research studies that collectively demonstrate that grounding reduces inflammation and promotes normal functioning of all body systems.
