Yesterday when I got to work my order from Earthing.com had already been delivered. Of course the first thing I did was take the box to my office and open it lol! I plugged in the floor mat, put my bare feet on it and started grounding right away, I also put on the flip flops each time I left my office. My office is carpeted but the rest of the building is concrete so whenever I walked out of my office I was grounded.
As soon as I got home I plugged in the mat so that most of the night before I went to bed I was grounded. I was so excited to get to bed last night but the trouble with that was that I wasn't in the least bit tired or sleepy. I don't do well in the summer at all, it is my least favorite time of year due to the heat. On top of that, the air conditioner in my car went out (have to have the compressor and everything replaced) and I couldn't get an appointment until Monday! It has been between 94 and 96 every single day this week. The heat just takes the life out of me so when I get home around 5/5:30 I'm just worn out and not good for much lol! Most nights I'll stretch out on the sofa and conk out out of sheer exhaustion. But not last night!
When I got home last night I was so energized, I can't even explain the difference in how I felt. No yawning, not sleepy at all, just feeling fantastic! The only thing I did that was different from my normal routine was that I had grounded all day long! Yesterday work was more stressful than most days and later last night I realized that I hadn't even taken any Ashwagandha except for 4 droppersful before I left for work. My job has been very stressful from the beginning and Ashwagandha has been a lifesaver in that regard! I keep a bottle on my desk and usually take 4 to 6 droppersful several times a day, but yesterday under even more stressful circumstances than usual, I didn't even think about taking it! Now the only reason I can come up with, is because I was grounded! How FANTASTIC is that? Pretty frigging AMAZING I say!!!
I tried to stay up until I was sleepy but that just wasn't happening last night lol so I decided I'd go to bed and try out that sheet. One thing I want to mention is that just about 20 minutes before I went to bed I drank almost a 1/2 gallon of water, I just couldn't seem to quench my thirst. Not a good idea to do that right before going to bed lol! I'm wondering if the grounding had started doing something in my body that made me that thirsty, like getting rid of imflammation or thinning my blood or something. I usually only have a thirst I can't quench when I eat biscuits and gravy, nothing else has ever made me feel that thirsty. BTW, I don't eat biscuits and gravy very often because it's bad bad bad for me lol!
Every night I have a really hard time going to sleep and I wake up several times a night. Since I drank a 1/2 gallon of water right before bed, I was up and down for a couple of hours going to the bathroom while I was reading. When I felt like I was rid of all that water, I turned out the light, went right to sleep and didn't wake up until 7:30 this morning. Wow, that is the first night in a long time I slept through the night without waking up! I'm here to tell everyone that we all need to get grounded everyday and all night long! The difference in how I felt today was night and day to how I usually feel. I have so much energy and that is just from one day and one night of grounding/earthing. I can only imagine what a great testimony I'm going to have after weeks/months of sleeping grounded. Folks, this sheet is worth saving your pennies for, the benefits are far reaching on many different levels. We all know that barefooting at least 15-30 minutes a day is a must but I have learned there is so much more to it than grounding out that static electricity we accumulate in our bodies. Please, everyone read all about earthing on this website www.earthing.com/ and get the book and see what we've all been missing!!!
I can't say enough about what a difference just one night on that sheet has made in me!
And of course, neither one of us are youngsters (although neither of us are anywhere close to 'old & decrepit'! lol).
I agree! But last week was the closest I've ever felt to being 'old & decrepit' lol! I mean that with all sincerity and I've always felt and acted much younger than my age but I was really feeling my age last week! Not so anymore due to grounding/earthing!!!!!
One more thing I forgot to mention in my post below that I noticed after the second night is that I'm not retaining water (swelling) like I usually do in the hot weather and that is fantastic! I guess that has to do with the inflammation the grounding takes away? I can't wait to see what other GREAT benefits I'll get as time goes by!!
I'm so excited for you to try it! ;-)
You know now that you mention the dreams, I had one last night that I actually remembered and it was very vivid too!
Isn't it great to be able to actually fall asleep and sleep through the night and wake up feeling energetic? That is a new feeling for me lol, but I sure am happy about it! I didn't drink a lot of water last night before I went to bed so I didn't have to keep getting up to go to the bathroom lol and I think I was asleep in under 10 minutes. For me that is the worlds record! I usually do back and forth, read, try to go to sleep, can't, get up and read some more. I usually go through several rounds of this before I'm actually able to go to sleep! People with insomnia definitely need this sheet!
One thing I forgot to mention about the pad. I keep my bare feet on it while I'm on the computer and the strangest thing happens. Last week I got a new MacBook Pro, the case is all aluminum, when my feet are on the mat and I touch the laptop, it vibrates. It feels really strange, doesn't shock me or anything it just vibrates. When I take my feet off the mat and touch the laptop it does not vibrate so it has to be the grounding. At least I never have to test the pad to make sure it's working lol, all I have to do is touch the laptop to test it ;-)
One more thing I want to report is that my shoulders were so tight that it hurt me. The first night I slept on the sheet I didn't feel any difference in the pain in my shoulders but after last night (2nd night) I got up this morning and the pain in my shoulders is about 50% less than normal. Usually I have to watch how I move my arms and turn my head, but now I don't YAY!!! This earthing/grounding is just the bomb!!!!
If you notice anymore benefits from sleeping on the sheet, please keep us posted and I'll do the same. I think you should get the mat too, the sooner the better lol!
I think it would do you a lot of good jboy!
They've got a special going on right how where you get the sheet and the mat for only $20 more than ordering just the sheet. That means you get the mat for $20 and I think it is usually $59.95, they used to be $79.95 each but now they've got a special where you can get 2 mats for $79.95.
These grounding tools are worth every darn penny and then some for sure!!!
Yes, it seems as if the strip of sheet they call the bed pad that you put on the lower half of the bed is all a body would need, that's what I've got. Judging by the results I've already seen from sleeping on the bed pad, it works fantastic. I feel that I would be more comfortable with the whole fitted sheet, not because I think it would work better, I'd just be more comfortable with it. I think it really is a matter of preference.
The package deal with the 36" x 120" bed pad and the floor mat comes with all the testers and connectors you'd need. It is a GREAT deal to be sure.
I can't correctly answer your question about the different metals but I would imagine they use silver because it might be cheaper.
This is from their Institute FAQs www.earthinginstitute.net/index.php/faq
Q. Are the sheet threads really silver? Why?
A. Any metallic material will conduct the flow of electrons. Earthing products utilize carbon or silver as the conductive agent. Silver is highly conductive and very strong, allowing it to hold up well with frequent use and washings. Moreover, it is inherently anti-microbial.
Here is what they say about electric blankets:
Q. How are the Earthing sheets different from an electric blanket?
A. Earthing sheets do not run on electricity. Nor do they heat up as does an electric blanket. They only conduct the subtle energy from the ground. They do not conduct the electrical energy that flows in the electrical system of your house and powers your lights and appliances. If you want to know about safety issues related to the use of electric blankets, visit the following website: http://www.electricblanketinstitute.com/safety.html There are no additional safety issues regarding the use of an electric blanket when sleeping grounded. Earthing product cords contain a current limiting resistor that prevent any harmful effect should an electrical event such as a short develop in an electric blanket.
I can't say enough about how these products have changed my life in just a short 3 nights and 4 days! I think EVERYONE on the planet should be grounded as many hours in the day as they possibly can!!!
I hope you will keep us updated on your experiences with the earthing products.
You mentioned that you have recently started bioidentical hormone therapy.
On this forum "Natural Healing & Herbal Solutions with Unyquity" the use of bioidentical hormone therapy is not followed or recommended. I offer you some links that explain the reasons and suggested protocols for balancing the hormones naturally that are utilized on this forum. I hope you will find the information of interest and "food-for-thought" in your search for health.
Thoughts, clues, questions & info ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE...ARRGHH!! [Unyquity]
Briefly, I have been on bio-identical hormones on and off for several years - my levels were so very low, of course.
Yet another situation of not addressing the CAUSE of the symptoms. I had an EXTREME hormone imbalance in my early 40s (and horrendous menopausal symptoms). It ALL disappeared after ONE colon cleanse. Why? because the sigmoid colon wraps directly around the uterus & ovaries and when even the slightest bit swollen, squeezes them 'out of function'. My "test" would have shown I needed hormones, but what I needed was to UNsquish my uterus & ovaries. Had I plowed my body/bloodstream with hormones it did NOT need from a source that is NOT natural, I would have done a LOT of harm (even though...I may have bandaided the symptoms, with that piece of duct tape over the oil light).

Re: For Uny-Next Round of Questions 9/27/10 [Unyquity]
Hormonal: I truly believe a huge percentage of this 'hormonal thing' will disappear after your first 30 days colon cleansing/healing round (I also believe it's likely you'll need at least another 30 days). That would be wonderful! Methinks you'll definitely have some level of relief - it might be substantial!
If you feel you want to supplement, Dr. Schulzes Female Formula is awesome. I know that when I used 'hormone supplements' before I did my first colon cleanse, the results were always negative.
They were very negative for me as well.
Now I know it's because there wasn't anything truly "wrong" with me at all, it was simply my liver couldn't process what hormones I was making adequately, and I couldn't make enough because my ovaries were squished out of shape/function. My body didn't want supplements, it wanted to be healed. However, at that time, I didn't think to buy/try the Female Formula (because I'd had negative experiences with other low-quality herbs) Do you think I should do at least a 30-Day colon cleanse and then see if I need to try the female tonic formula? That's what I'd do. Some gals go ahead and get the Female Formula so they can get some relief right off the bat, so if you want to do that, it'd be okay. I was so used to the 'hormone tango' (and the severe cramps & clots, which I'd had all my life), that I didn't ever even consider trying to heal it naturally in the beginning. I just felt it WAS natural :::eyeroll::: Also, at the time I did my first colon cleanse, I was not aware of the benefits it could have on my female-system, so the next month when my period started (without 'warning me' with 7-10 days of major PMS), I was flabbergasted. It actually worried me (I was sure there must be something wrong! lol). I didn't make the connection with the colon cleanse until I learned more.

LINKS to the [FAQ] Working File Threads... and SOME related information.
I'm wondering if you could give me a link regarding your statement below?
"If you are wearing very thin cotton clothing, the mat will also work or ground your body."
I've read the book and it says that at least some bare skin has to be in contact with the earthing device unless the clothing is somewhat damp which would allow it to be conductive. This is what the FAQ on their Institute says:
Q. I enjoy the feel of plush cotton sheets. Can I put the Earthing sheet underneath my regular sheet?
A. Sorry, but if you do you will not receive the benefits of Earthing. You want some part of your body to be in direct contact with the grounded sheet: the skin of your body touching the conductive sheet. That's how you absorb the energy from the Earth and how you get the benefits. If you have a grounded half-sheet, put it over your regular bottom sheet. If you have a full-fitted Earthing sheet, that serves as your bottom sheet.
Q. Can I wear pajamas when I sleep on an Earthing sheet?
A. Yes, as long as some bare skin comes in direct contact with the sheet, such as your feet. If some part of your body does not directly contact the sheet, it will require some moisture for the direct current of the Earth to flow through the fabric into your body. For some people this occurs naturally during the night when moisture from the body creates the necessary conductivity. Best, however, is having bare skin contact. Some people have asked if there is any type of pajama fabric that will not work with the sheet. The answer is that the fabric of the pajamas is irrelevant. The only factor that’s important is direct skin contact with the Earthing sheet.
Q. I like to wear socks to bed. Do my bare feet have to touch the Earthing bed sheet?
A. It is best to have your bare feet in contact with the grounded sheet. The Earth’s energy is conducted most optimally via bare skin contact. However, if you must wear socks, try to have some skin — bare legs or another body part — touch the Earthing sheet. You can place the Earthing product in your bed wherever it is most comfortable and effective for you. If you wear socks to bed because of cold feet, you will often find that your feet warm up naturally from improved circulation when you sleep grounded.
Q. Can I wear socks when using an Earthing mat on the floor?
A. Yes, but direct skin contact is best. Feet naturally sweat and will hydrate socks, making the socks somewhat conductive.
It would seem to me that if a person had on something made of very thin 100% cotton and it got damp, you might very well be somewhat conductive but.... the fact remains that a person won't be getting the full benefit of earthing/grounding unless you have bare skin touching the ground or earthing product.
So, if you've got some kind of evidence, please share it with us.
