Each Gaia Care Grounding Bed Sheet has a connector on it and is provided with an earth lead with an internal 100K ohm resistor. This means that even if the wrong socket connection is used there is no danger.
It is important to have a good quality earth connection. This means that the third pin (The large upper most pin for UK sockets) has to have a wire connected to the Grounding bar of the main fuse box, (You cannot see this as it normally runs inside the walls) that is then in turn connected to a metal rod or plate buried in the ground. If you are unsure of the quality of the earth connection you will need to purchase an earth socket tester. These retail for around 3 to 4 GBP and are widely available from such online sources as eBay or from good quality electrical suppliers. A simple device such as that illustrated to the left. A good search term would be "UK mains socket tester"
|*CAUTION: When running your own earth using copper wire to a rod in the ground, NEVER connect the wire directly to your Grounding bed sheet. Always connect to the earth lead provided, and connect THAT to the bed sheet by means of the button style contact provided. The 100K ohm internal resistor is fitted in the female button contact, by omitting the earthing lead you will be omitting a safety feature of the device.|
Grounding of the body: Health Implications and Benefits
We now know why it has been an ancient practice of some cultures such as the American Indians to sometimes bury a sick person up to their neck in the ground and leave them there for hours or even days.
It is now well established in practice by thousands of individuals and even scientifically proven by double blind trials that if a person is electrically in contact with the ground the healing response is increased. Sometimes health conditions can even resolve themselves, and usually symptoms significantly lessen. Benefits are noted in, but not limited to, arthritis, autoimmune disorders and many other common chronic health disorders.
Furthermore the greater the area of the body that is in electrical contact with the ground and the greater the amount of time a person is electrically grounded over the 24 hour period the better the results.
There are various degrees of electrical grounding of people. Before the introduction of rubber and plastic soles to most shoes, some degree of electrical conductivity (especially in damp conditions) was provided by leather soles. Before that (and as still practiced in some areas of hot countries) people go barefoot; this is the most natural method of grounding the body. Furthermore, in simple cultures both past and present, the body is in varying degrees of electrical contact with the earth when sleeping, on a mat made of natural material or on leaves or even to some extent on a concrete floor.
The earth is a carrier of free electrons and also multiple Schumann resonance frequencies derived from worldwide lightning strikes. Both of these types of electrical activity are beneficial for helping to maintain the health of the animals and humans that are in contact with mother earth. Our separation from electrical contact with the earth is responsible for a significant aspect of our poor health, low energy and development of diseases. In fact, so significant, that I believe in a future saner world, it will be considered quite crazy and reckless for our health to sleep ungrounded.
The two most obvious reasons why being electrically connected to the earth is beneficial, are :-
So with the virtual elimination of electromagnetic stress and simultaneously providing the body with free electrons and Schumann resonance frequencies for healing when we sleep at night it is not really surprising that the discovery of grounding has been called one of the greatest health discoveries. Any therapeutic regime that omits grounding is lacking a vital aspect.
