The rule taught by bau biologists is there should be one ground and one ground only on the customer side of the transformer. Sometimes that works, sometimes it doesn't. I have been in houses where a second ground was a vast improvement, and I have been in houses where removing the only ground was a vast improvement. Electricity takes the paths of least resistance, and you never really know where that is, or what the effects of adding or removing ground connections will be, until you try it.I agree with Mr. Maes about so-called body voltage. Measuring the electric field you are in is much more relevant than measuring your body's potential with respect to some arbitrary point in the ground outside.One thing Mr. Maes says is not quite correct. If ground currents from the electric grid are a severe problem, you do not want to be grounded. Wear rubber soles, don't walk barefoot, and certainly don't attach yourself to a ground rod. You'll just pull up dirty electricity from the earth into your body. However, if you are suffering from radiation through the air, the frequencies will accumulate in your body to the extent that they enter you faster than you can discharge them. Take off your shoes and provide a path to ground, and you will get rid of them faster and be relieved of your symptoms. Our clothing can also be a barrier that prevents discharging electricity. Silk is such a good insulator that they used to use it to insulate transmission wires on utility poles. Cotton is also an insulator, not quite as good as silk. Inability to discharge electricity can cause severe skin itching. I no longer wear cotton on my upper body, and under no circumstances do I wear silk any more.The situation is actually much more complex than that. We are actually always grounded to some extent, whether we are touching the ground or not. We could not live long if we were not. There is a science called magnetotellurics, which measures the conductivity of the earth at different depths by sounding the earth with different frequencies. Our bodies are connected with the different depths of the earth in a similar way, whether we are touching the earth or not. And the properties of the earth underneath where you live are just as important as the amount of radiation around you from cell towers and other technology. Carl Blackman and others proved that the magnitude and direction of the ambient magnetic field completely changed the outcome of their experiments, to such an extent that the biological effects of the same frequencies can be entirely different at different places on the earth. And the situation is even more complex than that. My experience is that the conductivity of the different layers of the earth underneath me determines how electrically sensitive I am at that location, and also where in my body I feel it. I live in Santa Fe on purpose because the conductivity of the ground here, all the way down to mid-mantle, is higher than almost anywhere else on earth. In this situation, the earth is very effective at "absorbing" the frequencies that enter you from techological sources.ArthurOn Wed, Nov 19, 2014, at 07:16 AM, André Fauteux wrote:Wolfgang Maes <email@example.com> is the author of the Baubiologie EMF evaluation guidelines adopted notably by the Austian Medical Association http://maes.de/(Google translation from his German text)Is the grounding of the people important? What must be considered when grounding measures?
Man is a supernatural being and any contact with his livelihood called Earth is reasonable and healthy. We block in our civilized life far too often contact with the Earth, for example by insulating building mass, synthetic carpets, plastic soles, especially in the car and in bed. All this cause the connection to the earth, the people for a long time holding isolated from ground.
It would be natural and sensible, relaxing in the truest sense of the word as often as possible grounded, to be in contact with "Mother Earth". On the one hand provides us with natural earth energies and on the other hand it takes us technically caused energies such as the recorded and accumulated in our bodies electromagnetic or induced by synthetic electrostatic charges. Earth discharges us, actually a good thing.
If it were not for these wretched and sometimes critical side effects were ...
Countless technical electromagnetic factors affect us: electric fields, waves, radio ... And a grounded man pulls them even better, is like an antenna for the plentiful around us electrosmog example of installations, cables, devices, neighbors, power lines, stations ... It is as a result of field effects under tension, even more than without grounding, and thanks grounding now critical currents flowing through his body.
Conclusion: Grounding? Yes! But please only if the environment of the grounded people - we take as a particularly important example of the bed space - guaranteed to be free (or at least very poor) is of technical electromagnetic fields. Otherwise: Verschlimmbesserung. Therefore: No grounding actions without expert measurements of electromagnetic pollution present in the environment and - if necessary - appropriate remediation.
And, also important: What we consider to earth, is often no real earth in the natural sense more, eg the protective conductor of the socket or the bare radiator pipe. They are so often full of "dirt" from "Dirty Power" of the whole electronic energy saving lamps, computers, the entire electrified house and the public electric grid, and these electromagnetic dirt we pull us through the protective conductor, the "earth" and in our body.
Next Conclusion: Grounding? Yes! But please only if ... it comes to a clean, natural earth without technical deposits, without artificial electromagnetic signals, without civilized dirt. Even that should be considered before grounding plans.
Sometimes the protective conductor of an electrical outlet or radiator or water pipe are not grounded - technical Hudel - and it closes here trusting his grounding mat on, please do not.
Sometimes even supplies the spike in moist garden soil no solid earth more because the ground - especially in large cities, especially in nearby technical facilities such as power lines, railway lines, transformer and substations, cellular towers ... - no longer is clean, full of technical voltages and signals. Usually, however, the garden soil is better than the house, especially in rural areas and further away from major electrical and industrial equipment.
You see, quite as easy as it is described by the grounding apostles in their books and publications, it is not time again.
From the USA currently spills over a Earthing- or grounding-wave to us. Grounding is praised here as a wonderful panacea for and against almost everything. The lost and by Earthing (grounding sleeping mats, floor mats, films, conductive shoes, ...) now restored ground contact to heal, promote sleep, relieve fatigue and stress, inflammation, attenuate, support the immune system, eliminate indigestion, calm the nervous system, promote detoxification, thin the blood, eliminate menstrual cramps, improve erections, dampen hypersensitivity, compensate for jetlag, accelerate weight loss. Grounding is "the simplest and most natural measure against the increasing painful and often fatal diseases," the "power source ground" offer an almost "endless supply of negatively charged free electrons that neutralize positively charged free radicals".
In addition, it must be read in the US literature, "earth reduces the electromagnetic fields acting on the body" and "the electrons of the earth shield the body against these disorders from". Certainly not earth reduces the forces acting on us electromagnetic fields, on the contrary, it attracts - as mentioned - rather still, and the earth does not shield the body from too, but it conducts electrical fields from the prize: current flow in the body.
On the edge: Be careful with the body voltage measurement by grounding measures or grounding bed pads. This measurement method is unfortunately often abused for the alleged evidence of a reduction of the voltage applied to the people. This does not work because the body voltage measurement (so-called capacitive coupling body) can only work if the - lying in bed, for example - does not guarantee any human contact with the ground or near the Earth has. Otherwise: unforgivable measurement error.
Some people feel better spontaneously and permanently grounded on such mats in bed, in my experience. Why? If, despite all the possible side effects of the "power of the earth", at the Erdnähekontakt, on contact with one of the most important means of livelihood? Or is it because of the sudden collapse of the technical Span¬nungspotenzials after partial years of exposure time? Or the fact that it is now no more potential differences are in the body, which are a special risk? Or?
Everything in life is grounded, everything is in flux: animals, plants, everything. On the ground, in caves, even in the nests of rooted trees with the earth. We humans should lichst often be possible with Mother Earth in harmony. We Civilized there are fewer and fewer. The perfect insulation is the bed, no more ground contact, made of wood, latex and / or foam. That is why? Why do we feel in a conductive environment well? In the Spanish finca with stone floor? In the shower? In the sea? Barefoot in the wet grass? Relaxed in contact with the earth energy.
Grounding yes! We are far too little grounded, especially at home. But please, just as described, if not critical technical fields affect us, and only when the soil is really anansonstenen earth: aerial man.
My bed is grounded, the most conductive surfaces, floors and walls of my living and working spaces also. But beware: My bed environment and the other rooms are free of technical electrosmog. And these are the most bed-, living and working areas of my fellow human beings not.
