I am beginning to read about this and feel it may have definite benefit. Activities include connecting a cable to my ground pole at home, through any outlet, and grasping it frequently, touching my grounded computer tower. Hard to go outside barefoot in the winter
I was looking into grounding mats, but they are a little expensive. What do folks who are into this do?
I use an earthing sheet and mats and I love them! You feel a subtle chi hit right away ...a strong sense of well-being, and sleep has been much better since I have used the sheet. I know many will be skeptical, but even the quality of sleep difference alone makes it worth the price. Also, my cat and child, who know nothing about electromagnetic fields, want to be on the sheet or mat, wherever they are in the house.
Earthing Technologies has a kit for about $300 that includes a half-sheet, mat, book and various cords.
I highly recommend this stuff. Whatever the science behind it, I feel deeply relaxed after sleeping or napping on the sheet or mat. I awake fully rested and ready to go. Plus it just feels good in the same way that an acupuncture treatment leaves you feeling good. And it totally fits with Paleo!
Hope that helps.
I had a rant on PH about this before, but I can't seem to find it. It's all nonsense promoted by people who don't actually understand how electricity and magnetism work.
Here's one of my rant I did find about people thinking turning the power off matters: http://paleohacks.com/questions/92922/has-anyone-experimented-with-turning-off-breakers-in-their-homes-at-night/93082#93082
Maybe I can search more and find the rant. It was pretty good if I remember.
I wrote up a long post on Grounding a while back. Check it out; I think it will have a lot of the information you are looking for:
