I recently stayed at a raw vegan retreat center for two weeks that offered all their guests the opportunity to use an Earthing bedsheet during their stay. The sheet is constructed with a grid of silver thread that is connected to a grounding cord. The cord is plugged into a working ground on a three prong outlet in the wall. The underlying premise of the sheet is that by laying on one of these sheets as you sleep at night, all excess electromagnetic fields (EMFs) that have built up in your body over the course of the day will be released back down into the earth through the ground in your outlet. This practice can help reduce inflammation and pain in the body, among other benefits. I have heard rave reviews of these sheets and other earthing products by people with lyme disease over the years and although curious, had never invested in any of them to try them myself. I am grateful to the retreat center for providing their guests with this free sampling of the earthing sheet. After one night on the sheet, I immediately ordered a sheet myself. It has improved my life immensely in a short time.
My experience with the earthing sheet for the first week was that it made me feel like I was floating on a cloud and put me into a deep sleep for 11-12 hours per night. I normally only need 6-7 hours of sleep. I was very affected by the sheet, although other guests I talked to were not. I spent all my free time laying on the sheet, as it made me feel so good and an added benefit was that it completely stopped the body itching I have been plagued with for many months. I suspect the effect was so apparent to me because I am electromagnetically sensitive. After about five days of deep sleep and relaxation on the sheet, the effect seemed to wane. However I am still committed to using these products and plan to purchase the other options, including a car mat and items you can use while working on the computer.
Where I am living now, there is 24/7 WiFi and I share an adjacent wall with someone who uses a lot of wireless products. I can also see a microwave tower nearby. Yet, I am able to get a full night’s sleep easily and I attribute some of that to the earthing sheet I now sleep on every night. The sheets are pricey – close to $200 – but I recommend trying one out if you have a friend who owns one, or possibly purchasing one of the less expensive options to see how your body responds.
I am so happy to have discovered it and it came at the perfect time, as I am venturing out more into the world and all the wireless technology it contains. What a relief to have a powerful yet simple tool to help me live with this higher load of EMFs.

There are certainly natural ways to ground oneself that don’t cost a dime. These include walking or running barefoot, or sitting on natural surfaces in direct contact with the earth (like sand, dirt, grass, the ocean, boulders). You can also Google to find many inexpensive ways to create your own grounding mechanisms.
