Can I plug a non-Earthing brand product or homemade grounding wire into the ground port of a wall electrical outlet and wrap it around my ankle or wrist?
We do not recommend this.
Official Earthing® products are specifically designed for safe, biological grounding of people. They have a built-in resistor that limits the flow of current in order to prevent the possibility that electricity could flow through the connecting wire and possibly hurt someone. The resistor allows the Earth’s natural energy to come through but not any potentially harmful electricity. In this respect, the resistor acts like a “kink” in a hose, curbing the flow. This is similar to the system utilized throughout the world to prevent electricity and static from damaging sensitive electronic parts.
