Health Tips - Metal in Bedrooms

 
Metal in Bedrooms

Metals accumulate electrical charges which can distort the body’s own electrical field. This can make it difficult for your body to heal and possibly to sleep.

As one of the purposes of bedrooms is body repair and healing, it is not a place for metals. Metals are usually all over a bedroom in the form of metal bed frames, box spring steel coils, cell phones, metal lamps, jewelry, eyeglasses, laptops, DVD players, TV’s, exercise equipment, etc.

Instead, try this:

  1. Take any metal bed frame such as brass or iron out of the room ASAP. Sorry about that, but there are lots of lovely wooden bed frames! If you can’t afford a new bed frame, put your mattress on the floor for now. Wooden platform beds are sold inexpensively at IKEA.
  2. Do not use a box spring or the metal mattress bed frame it often sits on. Platform beds are able to support a mattress without the use of a box spring. Read Beds and Bed Linens for alternatives. In much of the world, beds do not need a box spring!
  3. Keep your machines such as T.V.’s and DVD players in another room such as your den. Keep your computers in your work room. Do whatever you want to do with these machines up to bedtime and then end off with them. This is particularly necessary if you live around high-wires. Get the machines out of your bedroom!
  4. Keep your watches, jewelry, and eyeglasses in a jewelry tray in your bathroom or dressing room or in a dresser far from the bed.
  5. Buy lights for your nightstand that have a ceramic or non-metal base where possible.
  6. As best you can, keep metals over 5 feet from your bed.
