A little hard to earth outside today...huge snowstorm in the Chicago area (and many other places...). Good thing I have my earthing pad/sheet.

[Cool]

Got my lovely soft star shoes via lymesentinal blog! Very warm!


As i dont have the wrist bands I am now using a sock to earth just one foot using a little of the sheet.

I am trying to Earth all the time.

I think I agree that starting with the wrist band on the foot K1 might be best for us sensitive types.

Take care

wallace--
spoke with my son's BodyTalk practitioner about doing the treatments as outlined in the book on one's own person. He said this is not a problem. Just follow the cortices example on video. He said the book gives some of the basics but if you want to experience it at a deeper level, you need to see a trained BT person.

Hi, I'm wondering how the wrist band is different than the emf attenuating devices(blue bead, cell phone chips, etc.) that are out there. Those make me a bit agitated so not sure I can tolerate the wrist band, but would like to try. and where would I get one?


thanks

If you read the long interview on the end of page 3 with James Oschman he says all the studies were done with the wrist band on the K1 on one foot.

Do you pray before you earth or go barefoot?

Some religions see going barefoot as a form of penitence!


A Benedictine Monk
... Definition ...


A Benedictine Monk is one who by taking the Vows of Religion (Poverty, Chastity & Obedience) binds himself to the monastic life in its integrity.

The essence of living a monastic life, is for the formation of a community of Monks, bound to live together until death, under the Holy Rule of St. Benedict, in common life, in the monastery (Abbey) of their Profession, as a Religious Family, leading a life not of marked austerity but devoted to the service of God.

The Abbey (monastery) in which they live is the fixed abode of the community and consists principally of a Church, Chapter-house, Cloisters, Refectory, Cells for the Monastics, Library, Work-rooms, Guest Quarters, Parlours and any other ancillary facilities that are needed in being a self-contained community.

The Monks of Holy Rosary Abbey live the life according to the Holy Rule of St. Benedict, to the best of their ability, given the climate of society today. They live together in common, sharing all that they have with the entire community.

The traditional Benedictine Holy Habit, which consists of the Tunic, Scapular, Cowl, Cincture, Rosary and Benedictine Crucifix, is worn at all times in this Benedictine House. Although Monks are generally barefoot (discalced), this is not always possible, but at this particular Abbey, the practice of being discalced is not only encouraged, but practiced by most of the Monastics. The Holy Habit represents our life, our commitment to the service of God and His Church in this world, as well as our outward sign of our life freely chosen: that of poverty, penance and sacrifice.

Can I just buy the wrist band to try? It doesn't have the cord like the kit of bands does. Is that okay?

thanks

You need to be grounded for it to work...so you will need the cord with the wrist band. Otherwise, if you live in a warm climate, you can just walk barefoot on wet sand, damp grass or unpainted concrete, etc (no wrist band needed).

Not that many Lymies noticed much from this earthing as I see it.

Should we give it more time?

I think you get more benefits the longer you do it. Just because you don't notice anything does not mean it is not helping. According to studies, after an hour of earthing, the blood is more fluid (increased zeta potential so the red blood cells repel each other instead of clumping together).

Earthing giveaway and important info on how you need a voltmetre. Click on comments at the end.


I am on a third floor so using the rod isnt a option for me. [bonk]

Buy a voltmeter!

From the comments on the above post

Alix said...
Wallace,
Good questions. "The Earthing folks" have confirmed the necessity of the voltmeter. I've had direct conversations with Dr. Amalu (he's done Earthing research and is cited in the book). And, he and I tested outlets together last month with both the outlet checker and the voltmeter. The voltmeter is indeed the true test. It will be obvious once you play around with it. [Smile] Oh, and it's possible to Earth on any story - the cord just has to be long enough. A rod and insulated copper wire from the hardware store will work just fine, except they have to be fitted at the end (spliced) with Earthing attachments if you are using any indoor Earthing stuff designed to fit in a standard outlet.

have no way of using the ground rod as I am surrounded by concrete. I need to move!

I will try to sleep with friends so i can test out the ground rod.


I am unable to get a stable signal with my tester.

The last fews days I have put the iron pole in healthy houseplant and immediately got the flu plus fever!

Does anyone think this could have some grounding effect? Could one measure that with a voltmetre and a stable current?

This weekend I am staying with friends so will try out the pole in the real ground!

Just read the book on this. It is interesting..anyone have any updates? At least Spring is coming soon so I plan to try it outside as much as I can. Not sure about the pad/sheets, etc yet.

i always feel better earthing in the barefoot,

i never realized why or how powerful it can be.

Yes, Mo, best is walking barefoot or just sitting on your garden barefoot. Lyme sufferers have a psychological problem with that due to ticks, but I do find it is the best. The best deep sleep I ever get is when I'm touching the wet grass with my feet, in some afternoon naps I got, even with all the telephone antennas around.

Earthing the bed is also good, but not as efficient.

You got to protect yourself against EMRs (protecting against mobile phones, wireless devices, external antennas AND your own house wiring). I covered my bedroom walls with alu foil on the height of my bed, earthed these foils too, earthed my bed as it is a metal bed, connected myself with copper wires under my sheets to the earth AND still turn off the circuit breaker.

The quality of sleep is not comparable to sleeping barefoot on my garden, but it is much better than not doing that all!!!

Dr. K. said one of the fastest ways to get rid of cancer is to dig a hole and lay down inside it for about 30 minutes a day, if my memory is good.

Some humidity is necessary (so a thin sheet will do the job), so that your skin touches it. Then go out 10 minutes a day on the twilight exposing maximum of skin. In Japan, there is a hospital using that to treat all types of cancer with a lot of success!!

If you use the pendulum or muscle test, you can even CHOOSE the best place to connect yourself, as the quality of places vary. Some are better than others, but generally, just connecting to grass is enough!

I did earthing only after my lyme was gone, but if I had to re-start again, I would do this from start. Easy to do and unexpensive.

i have perfect places to test for this, and can easily get to them.

i am going to make an immediate effort with this.
