ME/CFS: A disease at war with itself
We can all agree that ME/CFS is a nasty disease, particularly in its severe form, but there are abundant nasty diseases in the world. What is unique and particularly confounding about our disease is that so much controversy surrounds it, and not only surrounds it, but invades it too.

How are people doing with earthing sheets these days?

    Interesting thought. I'm barefoot all day, but my floors are wood.......except for the ceramic tile in the kitchen. I could look for my earthing band and try that when I'm sitting on the couch. The sheet (which was very comfortable) wouldn't work because I'd have no skin contact during the day. Hmmm.....I'll give this a try.

    Bare feet on the sheet? If you're comfortable with your feet up on the couch then draping the sheet where your feet will contact it should do the job. I've never worn an earthing band but if I did I've have broken it (or me) forgetting I had it on.

    I've got the band on now. I figure if it might be stimulating, I should wear it during the morning. It's tingly and warm feeling, so.........something.
    Good idea about bare feet on the sheet. Maybe I'll do that as a transition, before trying the sheet at night again.

    Earthing.com doesn't sell 'my' band any more, but they've got essentially the same thing - a set of 2 for what I paid for one, on their closeout page:

    I used sheets then moved on to the GIO. You wear a grounded bracelet type thing which goes to the earth point. I use it to sleep and to use the computer. It really has made a difference to me. But then, I was electrosensitive prior to use, and knew EMF's were a problem.

    My Earthing Kit came with a tester to see if your outlets were grounded enough. Mine weren't, so I grounded the sheet and foot pad into the earth. That seemed to work - I fell asleep quickly last night and took two naps this morning. And my back and neck pain seem to be better.

    I've been extremely calm and mellow all day, and I find using the foot pad extremely relaxing. Since sleep and anxiety are big problems for me, I'm pretty thrilled with this.

    Forgot to mention that if you're skint and can sew or embroider, you can make up your own earthing linen by stitching with silver-coated thread, which is regularly listed on eBay. There is also quite a variety of conductive textiles available. If making your own gear remember that it's not enough just to use the fabric, your stitchwork or the conductive area of the fabric must be soundly electrically connected to the earth, most usually via a wire.

    I really felt a big difference when I first got mine but now I can't tell if it's still benefitting me or if I'm just getting better in general.It did help my EMF sensitivity a great deal and I slept much deeper.
    I didn't know about the washing it often thing though.. I was actually thinking it was better to wash it less! I"m glad I found out about that.

    Sweat is corrosive, and the conductive material in the sheets is metal (silver coated thread usually, hence their high cost), so the more you sweat on your sheet, the more frequently you should wash it.

    Just saw this video and it made me think of this thread, sometimes grounding yourself is the last thing you want to do :)
