Wendy Menigoz, D.N., pain specialist, Bourbonnais, Illinois: “I have been grounding patients for eight or nine years.  Roughly 90 percent are Earthing. “I tell my female patients to be grounded because helps with their cysts, periods, cramps, bloating, hot flashes, fibromyalgia, back pain and other pain. I ask them to do Earthing exclusively for a week. Sleep with a grounding mat, and put their feet on another one for at least an hour during the day. I don’t give them anything else to do. In bed, I like the mat to be under the core and to sleep directly on it. There is more weight there, and people are less likely to roll off the mat.  After a month or so they can put it under the regular bottom sheet if desired.

“I do this so they see how important and powerful Earthing is by itself.  If I give them other things to do in the beginning, like take supplements, change diet, etc, they may not realize the significance of Earthing. I get them grounded first  and then fine tune them.

“When patients are grounded, conditions often heal that typically never get better.”
