Your bedroom should be a healing place not a stressful place. Sleep is the time when your body's defenses are lowered, while your body focuses on healing and rejuvenation. Providing your immune system with the appropriate sleeping environment to allow maximum effectiveness in repairing the body keeps you healthier and helps you fight off illnesses more rapidly.
The stress caused by the electric fields produced by electricity supply wiring in most bedrooms is a greater threat to your health, sleeping and healing than are those very visible high voltage transmission lines you see running through some neighborhoods.
You probably wouldn't build or buy a house near high voltage transmission lines because you would have an innate sense of unease about the electromagnetic risk their family might face. What most people do not understand is that the typical wiring in the bedroom walls, ceiling and floor along with lamps, clocks and extension cords create electric fields 10 to 500 times the ideal level.
Think about ityour walls encircle you with unseen live electric wires that give off electric fields that charge your body every time you lie down to sleep.
The experience of Building Biologists has demonstrated that high body voltage in the bed can causes both long term healing problems as well as short term problems. Short term problems include difficulty getting to sleep, difficulty remaining asleep for 6 to 8 hours, muscle pain, heightened allergy response during the day, increased daytime nervousness, bed wetting in children and lack of refreshing sleep. If you do wake up feeling tired rather than refreshed, your sleeping environment could be at fault.
