Allergists recommend that the bedroom be an “oasis” from aggravating allergens and other inhalants, and chemicals. Electromagnetic radiation (EMFs) should also be kept to a minimum. The elderly, children, and those with compromised health are particularly vulnerable, as seen in this report:
My elderly mother is a typical “Touretter” and most of her difficult symptoms occurred during her earlier years. However we began to cope with some strange symptoms that were absolutely pitiful to witness. She would dread going to bed at night and put it off till she nearly dropped from exhaustion because she woke in the early hours like a different person. This dear sweet lady turned into a shaky, breathless, disorientated, anxious, stuttering, nervous wreck! In the early morning she would be pale, staggering while walking, and at times crying in desperation saying, “Someone somewhere in the world must be able to help me.”
Searching for help
We took her to every doctor in South Africa including conventional medicine practitioners, homeopaths, neurologists, psychologists, and even someone doing mind control. She is on a good basic diet without sugar, to control her diabetes. She has severely arthritic knees, and is on heart medications (Lanoxin and Enalapril) but apart from that, she received no other medication. She also has excellent nutrient supplements.
After several waking hours in the house, she would revert to being a completely normal, lucid, chatty, fun old lady! The later the hour in the day, the better she was. At midnight, before going to bed, she was normal. Until the next morning dawned.
The surprising solution? I read a testimonial from a TS sufferer who sleeps on a magnetic mattress overlay and has great results. So, I consulted a friend here in South Africa who is an environmental lawyer and involved in testing procedures for electrical discharges and their effect on neurological disorders. She is a recognized expert in the field.
She checked readings on my mother, as well as checking different rooms and appliances within the home. My mother’s body readings were so high she was “buzzing.” In Mother’s bedroom the testing machine readings were sky high. She came to our home and did compete testing with all her equipment. She checked readings on my mother, as well as checking different rooms and appliances within the home.
My mother’s body readings were so high she was “buzzing.” In Mother’s bedroom the testing machine readings were sky high. We turned off the main power and the readings dropped to acceptable levels. When turned the power back on again, they immediately shot up. We unplugged various appliances and eventually identified an under-floor heating mat that was located right under her s bed. It is on all winter, to keep the room warm.
Vicky explained that addressing magnetic issues can make a difference for people with neurological disorders such as TS. The correct magnetic fields can calm the brain activity and restore balance.
Steps to solve the problem
I suddenly realized that once summer starts and the heating goes off, my mother improves. We determined to have her sleep in a different area of the house. Vicky also emphasized the necessity of high nutrient foods for anyone with TS.
Mother is now 87 and much improved since we removed or avoid the electrical appliances in her bedroom. We also started magnetic therapy and work even harder with her diet. I strongly suggest that if anyone sees a negative health or behavioral change from evening to morning, inspect for electrical influences in the bedroom!
