SOME PEOPLE EXPERIENCE THE BENEFITS OF EARTHING FAST, SOME ONLY GRADUALLY AND OVER TIME.
Most people experience the benefits of Earthing quite fast, often within several days of sleeping grounded. Some however feel weird or even have flu-like symptoms, pain or cramp in the beginning. These experiences are usually temporary. They are the result of the adaptation of the body to the natural energy of the earth and the improved ability to dissipate stored toxins. This increased detoxification can have the effect that people feel worse for a few days. Afterwards they usually feel much better and have a lot more energy.
For example the well-known American cardiologist Dr. Sinatra said that he got leg cramp when he started with Earthing. He assumed that this was due to the detoxification. Therefore he began to drink more water to flush out the toxins. This strategy had as effect that the cramps disappeared. Since then he advises people who get symptoms of cramp when they start with Earthing to drink more water and to keep on Earthing.
It is also possible that Earthing triggers a healing process that improves the functioning of nerves which gives off the unusual sensation of tingling. This too will disappear usually after a short time. When someone cannot tolerate the starting aggravations very well, he advises to stop for a few days with Earthing and after that start again with short periods, for example two hours during the day. After that you can gradually expand until the moment that you can sleep earthed again.
It may be that you will have to experiment with this for some time yourself, but most of the time it’s more than worth the trouble. This approach works well even for people with a heavy toxic load, such as people with the Lyme disease.
