My fear would be that once some neighbor finds out or sees you, you will live as a caged animal and sleep naked on the cement.

    Honestly it makes sense. Humans should live as nature intended us to live. I do not think liberty will be found in doing so. I think a person would be deemed insane and perverted. But that doesn't mean that man is correct. I am confident that nature is correct and if we lived as nature intended we would be healthier in body, mind, and spirit.
    You can merge the old with the new.

    You don't need to go around exposing yourself like a caveman.

    Get a grounding sheet. Circumvent your electrical outlets and ground directly to earth with a grounding rod thru an open or closed window. Your preference.

    No doubt. I am not a speed reader and am only on page 50 or so. If I do not read the old I wouldn't be able to merge it with the new. I just got to the section regarding clothing. He does not recommend leather on the feet. He prefers canvas. Regardless much of what I read makes sense.

    Regarding Beds from the PDF book:

    "I want to devote a few words in this place to our BEDS. Man passes nearly half his time in bed. In bed he expects to recuperate, to gather strength, and to further his health. A great deal more attention ought therefore to be paid to beds, so that they may be made to conform to the requirements of nature.
    In the first place the bed, also, ought to allow the air to circulate freely. The outside air must mingle freely with the air under the bed-covers, which has become vitiated by the transpiration of the body. The feather-beds of to-day make this mingling of the air exceedingly difficult. Feather-beds ought to be discarded, therefore. Woollen quilts make the best covering. The cover that is next to the body ought to be rather thin, so as to more easily fold itself around the body. The quilts ought to be covered with very porous material. Under such woollen covers the body develops a more agreeable warmth.
    For a mattress the old-fashioned strawtick is most appropriate. Straw enables the air to circulate freely, is very warming, without heating unnaturally. But it would not do to let a straw fall on the carpet of our present-day elegant bed-chambers. Therefore the old- fashioned strawtick will not, presumably, be admitted again.
    But mattresses may also be made of other vegetable material, such as soft seagrass, oat chaff, and the like. Mattresses are best made entirely of wool like the quilts. Horse-hair and wool may be used. Horse-hair will prevent the wool from becoming so matted together from pressure in the course of time as to keep the air from passing through.
    The head should not be raised during sleep by means of pillows, or only very little.
    It is greatly to be recommended to lie entirely naked under the covers (without a shirt). One is much warmer in bed without a shirt than with one."

    I went about testing that tonight...

    I then tried plugging my grounding sheet directly into the ground, stood on it while inside, and I measured 0 with my voltmeter. So the problem is not with the sheet, it's with the grounding system carrying a small load.

    We should probably skip plugging into the outlets in a house and go direct to the source. (A lot of older homes are not even grounded in their outlets)

    I would recommend you get this $22 grounding rod that has a 40 foot cord along with whatever grounding sheet you decide on.

    Plug rod into ground, and you're ready to go to 0.

    How do you measure your voltage?

    I used a voltmeter and I put the black rod into the ground.

    While sheet is inside, plug sheet cord directly into ground. Stand on sheet and hold onto red cable of voltmeter to complete circuit. Turn on voltmeter. Take reading. Should bounce around zero if all is working as it should.

    Put black rod into the bottom circular ground plug of outlet to compare. Make sure you have a good connection.

    Sleeping on the ground from the PDF:
    "In order to sleep again on the earth it is best to select a nice grass plot; if there is no grass plot at hand, a thin reed matting, such as gardeners use, may be placed on the ground. In that way, of course, the earth power will fall very short of its full effect. Any thicker covering of straw, wool, cloth, or the like, to lie on must not be thought of, for the connection with the earth would in that case be markedly interfered with. No head rest is necessary, for it is of especial benefit for the head to lie on the cool, refreshing earth.
    We must not be discouraged if the first nights spent on the earth should prove uncomfortable.
    I have made the experience that patients, after the first few nights, were actually attracted to their bed on the ground, and strongly refused to tolerate anything under them. In rainy nights I was often concerned about having the patients come into the huts to sleep, so that the quilts should not get so wet, but it was with difficulty that I could induce the sick people to leave the ground. Soon, also, the hardness of lying on the ground is no longer felt. Nor need we fear that the earth is too cold nights to lie on entirely naked under covers; we shall only experience the sensation of a delightful coolness. Some perspire more easily lying on the ground than in a bed. Of course, beginners and those persons who have not yet regained sufficient animal heat through a natural mode of life, can only lie naked on the ground under covers in warm Summer nights, or in very mild or not too cold Spring and Autumn nights in our climate.
    During the first nights one generally sleeps worse on the ground than formerly in bed. After that, and sometimes even in cases of protracted and obstinate insomnia, a long, exceedingly refreshing and strengthening sleep will set in, which state of affairs will last for some time. But generally most persons will soon begin to sleep less and less, sometimes only from one to two hours, and the less they sleep nights lying on the ground, the brighter, fresher and stronger will they feel the next day. I myself have not slept a wink for weeks at a time on the ground, but during that period I never felt the least discomfort or trouble of any kind, as was formerly the case in sleepless nights during my long and severe nervous suffering while lying in a bed. On the contrary, those nights were particularly delightful and free from ennui, and during the day I was never so entirely without any trace of weariness and languor, and I never felt more refreshed than at that time."

    Slept totally grounded last night. Don't plug into electrical outlets, get a grounding rod.

    You're missing out.

    Everyday I have been going out and working on my yard barefoot. I don't know yet if it is psychosomatic but my sciatic pain that I have had since November has been slowly disappearing and I feel great! I am going to continue this because I think grounding truly has been helping.

    Another interesting thing; since I have been doing this I have not gotten shocks from my vehicle as I had been or laundry coming out of the dryer.

    Thanks Josh for bringing this information to my attention.

    Guess this explains why swimming in the river is so exhilarating...

    I seriously doubt the Ozarks would have been settled without boots, the natural state of the ground is not user friendly.

    My understanding from reading the PDF book "Return to Nature" is that the body doesn't like to be totally submerged for any length of time. We were not intended to be in the water. Also according to the book it doesn't seem like it matters about the terrain or water or cold as far as going barefoot. Man was born and intended to go thru life barefoot and naked. Supposedly people can go barefoot even during winter months except for maybe the harshest 2 weeks.

    Boots are ok.

    Leather soles are fairly conductive when it has a small amount of moisture. Our feet sweat more than most parts of our body.

    It's also a field, not an on/off switch.

    Most shoes nowadays do not have leather soles and we also stopped sleeping on the ground.

    Going barefoot would be extreme to most nowadays. It's not really necessary imo. People should just ground overnight and they'll get more than enough benefit without needing to change their lifestyles.

    The video shows a plug being put into the end of the cord. Is that the sort of plug that is found on these grounding sheets?

    I live in Connecticut. Presently the temperature is plunging from 60 yesterday to single digits tomorrow. Been Raining all morning and windy. Temperature is about 30 now with 15 mile an hour wind. This would be a good time to get naked and go walk outside for about half hour.

    Healthy fat hidden in dirt may fend off anxiety disorders

    10(Z)-hexadecenoic acid, a fatty acid found in the soil based bacterium Mycobacterium vaccae, interacts with immune cells to inhibit pathways that drive inflammation and increases resilience to stress. Researchers say the findings could bring us one step closer to developing a microbe-based “stress vaccine”.
