● Danilo Psico, Sao Paulo: My uncle of 84 had a stroke and after that got very tired and could not walk a lot. We always go to a same restaurant and do the same walk in local mall here in Sao Paulo. And some of the days I would be very scared because he was short of breath and had to make stops and sit during the walk at the mall (it was always the same route). After sleeping grounded I noticed he didn’t need to stop anymore and the shortness of breath was better. The confirmation came when the maid broke the wire of his grounding mat and he had to make stops and felt way more tired during the same route! Another thing that happened is when I went with him to do a medical test to renew his driving license the physician was impressed with his force and health. Unfortunately he does not acknowledge it ….though he says he sleeps better and his blood pressure nowadays is quite good!

● Anonymous. “Four weeks ago I had a stroke and I lost my ability to swallow. It is got to be one of the worst injuries I could imagine. I spent 1 week in the hospital and 2 weeks in the rehab center. I was told when someone loses their ability to swallow due to a stroke it can take anywhere from 6 weeks to 6 months to regain that ability. I had my wife bring me my grounding pillow so I could sleep with it. Well, I am happy to say what I was told normally takes 6 weeks to 6 months only took me 3 weeks. The doctors were amazed. I owe it all to prayer and I think my grounding pillow.  P.S. the nurses use to joke about me using my own special pillow, until they saw my recovery. The day I left the hospital 2 of the nurses asked me where they could buy one!”

● An elderly Australian couple: “Our benefits have been quite remarkable after a month of Earthing. My wife, Anni, 74, is a stroke victim and has heart failure. She is on warfarin (Coumadin), and after only a couple of days of sleeping on a grounded sheet, she was able to drop her dose of warfarin from 5mg to 2mg, She is also sleeping much better and generally feeling better and less stressful. Myself, 76, suffering from arthritis and benign prostatic hypertrophy, but generally healthy, have had a remarkable improvement in both my arthritis pain level and also my prostate. I can now sleep right through the night, without having to get up for a wee. I feel much more relaxed and not so tired and grumpy during the day.”
