Hi I must tell you how happy I am with my Earth Sheet. It arrived about a week ago and Iv never felt so well, and so full of energy I've always been quite stressful, having a grandson who is autistic, is a great worry to me. I feel like I could take on the world, and this is just after 1 week!!!! I've been telling everyone about 'my sheet' including my cousin who has just had the all clear from cancer. She feels a bit achie and very stiff, generally under the weather, but such a fighter! I hope she gets in touch and gets herself 1. Thank you so much, Regards. A very calm, Sally

I am a true sceptic when it comes to new age/alternative therapies but something about the way that Clinton Ober wrote about his almost DIY research into the subject of earthing tickled my imagination. Imagine my surprise, trying out the earthing sheet for the first time, when I slept soundly, dreaming the most vivid dream I can ever remember and not waking with the nightly leg and foot cramps that I suffered almost every night. While the dreams have settled down, the night cramps have vanished. I now sleep deeply and untroubled. I was disappointed therefore when my leg cramps came back one night and I slept very badly, only to find in the morning that the earthing cable had not been attached to the freshly laundered sheet for at least three days.
The underlying cause of my cramps are probably a sedentary lifestyle, however, without the earthing sheet on my bed I am positive that my sleep would not be as refreshing as it is now.
It is obvious that good diet and exercise will help me even more but the earthing sheet has proven itself to me and has become an integral part of my sleeping world.
Not bad for a sceptic who has found himself working in the Mind Body Spirit arena!
It is all true and I still don't believe it!

Many thanks for the recent supply of a further bedsheet, a small mat, further electrode patches, and two Earthing books.
My case history - Age 73 and a bit, permanent injury related headache for some 60 years, low back problem, stiff and achy - 40 years, achy calf muscles - 15 years.
Over the past 30 years have spent a fortune on various therapies, with little success. In fact, existing problems increased in intensity with passage of time, and new inflammatory problems developed. Involvement in DIY projects proved hellish for the low back, as you might imagine.
I am currently receiving cranio-sacral therapy - 3^ years, and I am hopeful that this will deliver the goods combined with the earthing.
Some eight weeks have now elapsed principally with use of the bed sheet and the following has occurred:
1. Circulation improved, notably no cold feet in bed overnight.
2. Central scalp tissues loosening.
3. Marginal eye sight improvement - within a year of the original accident, I needed glasses to see the blackboard at school.
4. Gingivitis developing in recent years is now much improved.
5. Bowel function improved.
6. Blood pressure improved. A weak pulse is now stronger and slight arrhythmia no longer apparent.
7. Some improvement in sense of well-being.
Needless to say, I am delighted, with the progress obtained.
I now intend to start using the electrode patches, perhaps in conjunction with the small mat - electrode patch for cranium, small mat for soles of feet.
Will report to you again in due course.

I began using the E'sheet before I had read very much about 'Earthing', as I wanted to keep my perception relatively free from influence. The E'sheet is a cotton sheet with a fine, visible, yet unobtrusive, criss-cross of silver, woven within the fabric; it is applied to the bed, over the top of the bed-sheet to allow direct contact between the skin and the sheet. The sheet itself then connects to a cable and earthing rod, which runs out of the bedroom window and down into the earth outside, allowing that connection with the earth. I have always loved walking barefoot and rarely keep my shoes on wherever I am, but my feet are often cold due to poor circulation, so I was intrigued as to how I might get all the benefits without freezing cold feet.
The first few nights that I used the E'sheet I could feel a pleasant tingling sensation similar to reiki energy, and particularly where my palms touched the sheet. I later read of similar experiences and sensations in the EARTHING book. I first noticed that I had begun to sleep more deeply, and was waking more easily (although I lack the response of waking feeling completely refreshed that some have claimed). I have now found (having used the E'sheet almost continuously for more than 4 months) that I tend to wake naturally now, at about 8-8.30 am, regardless of when I go to bed.
My circulation has also improved and I haven't experienced my fingers becoming cold, numb and white, since I began using the E'sheet (something that was a common occurrence prior to this). Most impressively to me, my 'constellation' of verrucas, which have for over five years resisted being sold, burned, frozen, scraped and wished away, have disappeared! Was this a result of the E'sheet? The only other change in my life has been leaving the NHS...
Although I am still currently experiencing back pain, during the summer when I was combining the E'sheet with significant periods of barefoot walking, I felt at my best. Alive, refreshed, energised. But don't take my word for it, there is a multitude of evidence, both anecdotal and research-based, within the EARTHING book, with amazing photographic and thermal-imaging of the effect of earthing products on inflammation and chronic leg ulcers (as a district nurse, I found this to be particularly interesting). I cannot claim that the earthing products will cure all ills; but the E'sheet has certainly had a positive influence on me and upon my health. Even, or perhaps especially, for the-sceptics among you, the EARTHING book is well worth a read to find out more about his fascinating, yet simple concept of reconnection with the earth.

As a Naturopath we like simple tools that are easy for the client to use- and are effective on the core issues (stress, sleep, cortisol cycle, vitality, feeling of wellbeing): this really fits that bill!
Personally I started to get great sleep (and less needed) and no need for early morning coffees! I thought that was it- but- I had been having muscle cramps at night and needing to get up for a pee at least once a night. Both issues have gone!
I wanted to check if I could get effects that could be measured by a device- so I ran myself down for a week to get some “bad” measurements and see the effects. Because the recovery bag is a “fast rack” resource booster I used that. We used a Heart Rate Variability Device- which is a well respected device. Very low readings on energy reserves changed dramatically after just a one hour treatment.
A Cardiovascular adaptation
B Autonomic nervous system regulation
C Central regulation
D Psycho-emotional state
E Overall functional state
Change in Brain Biorythms showing more relaxed state
J. Green diary
These are the anecdotal results up to 26th January of using an Earthing Sheet on our bed. I purchased the item from John Kelsey and started using it on 16th November 2010.
16th November 2010
Me – restless sleep, worse than usual
Husband – restless sleep, worse than usual
Me – a bit tired today. Raining, decided to have a go on the exercise bike instead of taking a wet walk. Despite the tiredness, there was less muscle fatigue than usual when pedalling madly (more efficient oxygenation, improved muscle function?) Sleep tonight was restless as last night.
Husband – restless sleep and feeling a bit “buzzy” and tingly all over.
Both of us feeling a bit sleep deprived.
Sleep tonight for both of us a bit better, but not still broken. Husband still complaining of tingling sensation.
All the same as yesterday.
Took the sheet off husband’s side of the bed without mentioning that I’d done so. He slept better and next day reported the tingling had stopped.
My sleep – a bit better, but not back to normal.
21st and 22nd November
Much the same as 20th November. I did not feel tired on 21st or 22nd.
23rd and 24th November
Both of us slept well and had normal energy levels during the day.
I put the Earthing Sheet back on husband’s half of the bed without telling him. We both slept well and he had no tingling sensation.
Generally sleeping very well now, possibly better than before using the Sheet.
Perhaps it may take about a week to adjust to the Earthing Sheet for some people?
I cleaned the car with cold water, wearing the usual Marigold rubber gloves. It was barely above freezing and by the time I leathered off, the roof was icing up. Came indoors after completing the job, took the gloves off and noticed that my hands were still warm, whereas normally they would have been cold.
Husband often comes in from the workshop rubbing his hands together because of the cold out there, but over this weekend I noticed the lack of “hand rubbing”. He remarked that it was quite cold out there, but said he didn’t feel as cold as he normally would.
Improvement in circulation maybe? More than a coincidence that both of us experienced something similar?
Occasionally I experience a mildly painful lower back and have done so for about ten years. Aggravated by inappropriate seats or sitting too long, better for movement and exercise. Around Christmas time, when there is too much lounging around, it occurred to me that the lower back was better than usual. This improvement has continued. Experienced a bit of aggravation after being on a train journey last week, but it recovered rapidly. Less inflammation, faster recovery?
Sleep and Vitality Benefits
This is the most common benefit reported- and this is important as many people sleep poorly. It reflects returning to the earth’s natural cycle.
SR- Dec 2009: I noticed a change in my sleeping pattern after the first few nights. Before I started using the blanket my sleep was erratic and disturbed. I was often waking around 4 am and finding it hard to return to a deep sleep. Since using the blanket I do not wake up through the night
TH- June 2010: What has happened to me is that the "stiffness" in my body when I wake up in the morning is gone. I sleep very deeply; at least eight hours every night. I also feel totally rested the whole day (this has never happened in the past). My wife has the same experience.
AG- Sep 2009: After four days AG reported that she was sleeping well (good since hubbie rolls about in bed and snores!), felt refreshed on waking, and found it easier to keeping going for more of the day. Even when she felt she hadn’t slept long enough she found she had more vitality than before.
Regularisation is a common event.
SR- Another noticeable change is the regularity of my cycle. For the previous 12 months my period was unpredictable coming every two months or every two weeks. For the last 2 months it has been back to the regular 28 days, and without pre-menstrual signs that I have become familiar with.
Muscle Spasms at Night
Reduction is a common experience, consistent with Dr. William Amalu Medical Thermography Case Studies and Gaétan Chevalier, Kazuhito Mori, and James L. Oschman The Effect of Earthing™ (Grounding) on Human Physiology. European Biology and Bioelectromagnetics, 31/01/2006: 600-621.
JCK: An 18 year old girl moving towards chronic fatigue. She had been struggling with bags under the eyes, was flat in vitality, was not sleeping well. After 4 days she volunteered (which is pretty cool for a teenager!) that the bags were going, her skin felt clearer, she was sleeping and had a bit more “oomph”. She was a lot easier to be around. It is not a complete solution for her but made a significant difference and is motivating her to do more good things for herself.
Client scores 7 on 10 scale and was using the recovery bag. The sensations are typical of what is often felt. After two days the client was able to walk across room without walking frame. This is probably a reflection of increased energy flows (electrons) to muscles (as experienced with InterX device) and/or anti oxidant (electron) effects.
Extreme weakness in leg muscles
Feet and legs usually cold to touch
Urges to cry sometimes
Feel very down at times
Difficulty swallowing occasionally
Difficulty urinating to order
Otherwise feels well generally.
10/11/09 – 20:50 hrs to 21:20 hrs
First session 30mins: Tingling sensation up legs from feet and arms all the way up to the shoulders. From about 10 mins to 30 mins felt comfortable with it, very slight tingling but noticeable. Wants to try it tomorrow. Tingling in bum 10 mins after finishing (just bellow hip joints)
11/11/09 – 20:55 hrs to 21:25 hrs
Tingling on bottom and chest only along lateral line only to nipple line, otherwise nothing else.
12/11/09 – 12:50 am to 1:20 am
Elbows to hands and breast to neck, light tingling all over those bits and light tingling over back travelling across … from S… Pubis to bottom, left shoulder to left hand, down back from shoulders to bottom tucked in, gone across right hand, going up right arm to elbow. Travelling up spine, now down to knees, knees to feet. Nice warm feeling all over. Nice warm tingly feeling all over.
14/11/09 – 20:30 hrs to 21:05 hrs
Tingling all over chest. Knee jerking a lot (LT) Warm feeling across stomach and all way up to neck, right leg keeps twisting inwards. Warm feeling back again, feels like right hip is turning inwards. (post test, leg still jerking)
16/11/09 – 22:50 hrs to 23:20 hrs
Nice warm feeling up left leg and left arm now travelling up back. Relaxing feeling. Feels like walking on grass on her feet and up both arms.
Many people report recall of dreams - this is reflective of deeper sleep states. It is also possible that the “clearance of unresolved issues” through dreams is better.
SR- I also haven't dreamt, or haven't remembered my dreams for a few years. I also now remember my dreams most mornings when I wake up.
Male night time urination
Middle/late age men frequently report that night time urination goes - and that the discomfort at night disappears. This is probably due to the anti-oxidant effect of electron exchange with the earth.
TH - The discomfort I've felt because of my prostate cancer is gone.
I used to be exhausted after giving 6 sessions- now I can do 10-12, not be tired afterwards and still have energy left for fun
When patches are used near an area of discomfort, denseness or tightness the problem areas seem to melt quickly during massage.
For clients who have a lot of non specific discomfort using the recovery bag for 30 minutes pre massage significantly improves the session benefits and these hold for longer.
SA: I channel high frequency energies and felt my body staying more overall balanced. I felt so much more grounded and also nourished by the earth; not only from above as usual. At the end after a 2 hour massage I felt totally relaxed myself too and glowing with a beautiful softness, because of the harmonious mix of energies. The client felt the same, which was very nice
The Earthing Pad
MV Jan 2010: I spend pretty much all day in front of computer screens trading or on the telephone working with clients.
In spite of many years of personal development work I have suffered from anxiety, lack of focus and been feeling depressed. in recent years. The situation gradually got worse in spite of a practice of regular meditation and energy therapy which I use regularly to clear blockages. I also have energy vitalisers in my working space and living space to neutralise geopathic stress.
Last year things got so bad that I had to take a natural serotonin supplement as serotonin levels in my brain were at 0.
When I acquired the Earthing mat I noticed a difference after the first might of sleeping on it and to my great surprise and relief the improvement has been maintained now for 5 weeks, since I purchased the Earthing mat.
My mental state is much improved significantly and so have my energy levels. I can attest to the fact that my mental clarity has improved hugely and that the feelings of depression and anxiety have disappeared.
The regular block clearing work is much easier and I can honestly say that I feel that the Earthing mat has been a major contributing factor in achieving this break through.
