●  From Rin Royer, 36, East York, PA: “My fiancé and I are musicians.  He used to be a bull rider in a time before they wore helmets. He has a history of traumatic brain injury, countless concussions, and seizures.  I have had debilitating migraines and cluster headaches, sometimes five days in a row. We both have used an anti-seizure med called Topamax.  It helped for a while but the side effects weren’t worth it. By the time we weened ourselves off of it, we were suffering from severe anxiety and depression.  I would get so anxious that I would start coughing and throw up because my diaphragm would spasm.  I always felt like I was choking and had trouble breathing even after I quit smoking. Nothing could calm down my mind and body unless I curled up in bed for hours. My social and professional life pretty much came to a screeching halt. Being a musician, this was devastating. I would push through playing shows but would disappear as soon as possible afterward. I would usually have an anxiety attack complete with throwing up before every show. I figured I had damaged something beyond repair while on the medication and no doctors really had a plausible answer except to put me on more pills. We started grounding the end of January 2018 and by late February we were already noticing massive changes in our bodies and minds! I was no longer throwing up and the anxiety attacks were fewer. Physically, I don’t feel as sore and run down anymore. Everything used to hurt all the time and a knee injury from my teens would flare up after about 10 minutes of any physical activity.  Not anymore. I’ve also noticed an extreme change in my body odor/chemistry. I used to shower at least twice a day due to perspiration and odor and now I feel like it has decreased significantly. I have been able to walk my dog 40 minutes and do an hour of yoga daily. I have lost weight and inflammation. My fiancé originally thought this was crazy and weird. But he can’t deny the benefits now!  He has noticed significant changes to his mental well-being and an old rotator cuff injury doesn’t flare up as badly as it always used to.  We now do yoga together on an almost daily basis, we have been able to get back to hiking and have some backpacking planned, and our day to day relationship has dramatically improved!”

●  From a woman in England: “I bought an earthing sheet as I was so totally convinced that this was the solution to my insomnia. Also I started walking barefoot again when I took the dogs out along the footpaths every afternoon. Only problem is I have anxiety…I kept my faith, and gradually noticed over the first week an improvement in my sleep, which used to be horrendous as every night I went to bed dreading the anxiety and lying there for literally hours before dropping off. I also noticed very subtle things shifting. The anxiety reduced and I no longer wake with a jolt just after dropping off. I found that I felt more peaceful, which was surprising as I didn’t think I was tense all the time. Very oddly I feel at ease with my fellow man, and feel compassion and liking and a definite want to get to know people more deeply. As I said, all very odd! Now four weeks on of using the earthing sheet, and walking barefoot in the fields most days, I feel it was the best purchase of my life as far as my health goes. All the supplements and therapies have not helped with my anxiety and eating disorder, but this little sheet connecting me with the earth, plus the barefooting have done so much for me.”
