Dear All, I have a continuous problem with Static Electricity Shocks. I can touch a light switch and see a big spark. I can touch various objects around the house and outside the house and get shocked to almost the feeling of being very unconfortable. I imagine it is because my body chemicals are not balanced and I'm charged like a battery. I guess I'm not grounded enough. (bizarre) I was wondering if anyone has the same problem and what they do about it. I read about bracelets and tethering your bed to ground while sleeping might help keep you grounded. I have a metal bed frame....maybe I can find a way to ground it. Article about Static Electricity and FM below... Don't know how reputatable the source is... Grounded Sleep: A double-blind study completed in December 2000, examined the effects on neurological or stress-related health disorders of subjects sleeping grounded vs. those sleeping on a placebo pad. The grounded sleepers showed dramatic improvements in: improving quality of sleep (85%), lessening time to fall asleep (93%), feeling more rested upon awakening (100%), reducing muscle stiffness and pain (82%), reducing chronic back and joint pain (74%), and improved overall health and well-being (78%). No detrimental effects were observed. This study suggests a formerly little recognized link between a human need for daily, extended contact with the earth's natural energy field, and the potential lack of such contact as the source of a contributing or causal factor in a wide range of physical distress and disease. The National Sleep Foundation recently reported that "seven in 10 adults (69%) say they experience frequent sleep problems." The report remarks that "health problems play a significant role in the quantity and quality of adults' sleep. They are associated with high incidences of insomnia (trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, waking too early, and waking up feeling un-refreshed), and sleep disorders." Those who report the following medical conditions are most likely to experience a sleep problem: depression (83%), nighttime heartburn (82%), diabetes (81%), cancer (79%), hypertension (79%), heart disease (78%) and/or arthritis (76%).
