I started earthing five days ago using a wristband that a company sent me. A multimeter confirms I am indeed grounded, and the only electronic device I've been using during that time (my laptop) is grounded as well. The first time I tried on the band, I crashed almost immediately -- POTS, hypoglycemia etc. all worsened. I thought it might be placebo, but have been wearing the band pretty consistently since (and sleeping with it around my ankle). I sense it must be doing something because my body feels warmer and I am a little bit calmer/less angry. But, at the same time, I feel constantly 'crashed' and malaised with increased appetite, dehydration, headaches, more off-balance and dizziness etc. Sometimes I experience a kind of internal buzzing, and I am so much more foggy than usual; my mood is also worse. I am combining it with other detoxing efforts such as coffee enemas, but those never left me feeling like this. My understanding is that earthing regulates rather than lowers cortisol per se (directly lowering cortisol tends to make me a lot worse). So is it possible this is all just related to the initial 'detoxing' that earthing can generate? The company suggests it should only last a few days, which is why I was concerned. I am happy to push through feeling crappy if I know it will probably pass.
