Creating a Sleeping Sanctuary

The human body is an amazing, self-rejuvenating entity that has the ability to repair itself
while it sleeps. This is accomplished with its own, internal electrical system that functions with very weak electrical impulses.

Electrical impulses are generated by the brain and are used for intercellular communication. This is possible because the body is composed mainly of water with a high mineral content making it highly electrically conductive.

In the typical sleeping area, electrical exposure from external sources (live electrical wiring in ceilings, walls and floors) is thousands of times stronger than the body’s own electrical system.

Long-term exposure to these high level electric fields can impair the body’s ability to communicate within itself and impact health. The average person spends approximately 1/3 of their life sleeping. Doesn't it make sense to reduce exposure to electric fields in our sleeping areas?

1. Use battery clocks near bed

Research has shown that exposure to high magnetic fields while sleeping can cause severe long-term illness. Many electric clocks produce high magnetic fields. Put the clock as far from the pillow as possible.

2. Turn off bedroom-affecting circuits

A restful sleep is necessary for health and a strong immune system. Electric fields affect the bio-communication system, keeping you from sleeping soundly.

3. Eliminate or shield from RF

Radio frequency (RF) signals from portable cordless phones, cell phones, and wireless devices have been shown to interfere with the body’s immune system. The best advice - leave all electronics out of the bedroom. If you just can't, shield with a produce from Natural Healing Tools. 

4. Use beds without metal

Metal frames and metal box springs can amplify and distort the earth’s natural magnetic field, which can lead to a non-restful sleep. Use natural materials.

5. Make sure there are no elevated magnetic fields

Magnetic fields from appliances and building wiring can penetrate walls into a bedroom and disrupt the body’s communication system.
