i did...and will again soon...its been a year getting into this new house and i am still sleeping in living room while renovating bedrooms
i used my emf meter to find best room(least emfs)
it became my bedroom
the worst room(highest emfs)i turned that into office with computer (it used to be my bedroom) and was next to kitchen with fridge and microwave etc
i had one small lite in my new bedroom-sanctuary- and when i was well i left cell in another room but when i was not well i kept it with me turned off for safety
i didnt always have the light plugged in...if i can get to bathroom safe i dont use it...unless i read b4 bed...and that does help me settle down
i sleep so much better in there---i do have clothes but very little other stuff...good bed...clothes storage...one small light...dark curtins-but i didnt get the special ones or paint
i do notice a difference

I looked into this but I don't have one set up. There is controversy about it & whether it works. From my understanding, you could make things worse by causing EMFs to pool & create eddies in other areas of the room if you aren't careful.
I think it's worthwhile to investigate, though. I moved out of an apartment due to excessive dirty electricity. You may want to start off with an EMF meter. I also heard that the Stetzer filters are good but I never tried them.
There are other versions of the Stetzer filters that are less expensive if you look around (like on Amazon). It is worthwhile to get away from excessive dirty electricity. I felt better when I got out of the apartment that we had.
I don't know if the silver canopies are worthwhile or not. Some frequencies may be able to penetrate it & they are a bit expensive. Maybe try silver fabric sheets instead? I'm thinking of trying them. I feel bad for people who have to deal with the Smart Meters. It's a nightmare...
We set one up very carefully around the bed, but it didn't work. The cell phone worked just fine from inside the sanctuary. For us, it was a waste of money and hope.

So much good info here!
Dogsandcats, you probably figured out from the posts above that a sleep sanctuary is a place where you try to eliminate all you can of electromagnetic fields, including wifi and cell tower radiation. The idea is that microbes love EMF's and duplicate faster. Also, some people say that EMF's deplete your melatonin, which can lead to cancer and a weakened immune system. That is why I am trying to set up a lo-cost sleep sanctuary.
Ipkayak, are the dark curtains for blocking out light or do they do something else besides? When you said you noticed a difference with the sanctuary, can you elaborate please? I am really interested in this.
Sparkle: what is a Stetzer filter?
Brussels, do you think that silver sheets are good enough or is a canopy necessary?
Richard, that is bad news that the canopy didn't work. Did you have the shield that goes under the bed as well, or is your bed on the ground floor?
Also, how many ditched their mattresses with metal springs?
This could be very expensive and it would be a bummer to find out some of these things didn't work. I tend to think it would be beneficial, esp. since I am a cancer survivor. Now, how to get my sleeping partner to go along with all this?
