The link between us humans and the biological effects of the earth’s magnetic field is actually beneficial to our health and well-being, however most likely not talked about enough or even widely misunderstood. “The Barefoot Effect” or earthing is a phenomenon revealing that the direct contact with the ground, like when we’re barefoot, helps us to release positively charged electrons to the negatively charged earth. Generally speaking, people feel a lot more refreshed and healthy when they are outdoors and feeling the grass beneath their feet. See, playing outside is good for you! “The Barefoot Effect” lends itself to the concept of Samina’s Lokosana pad that helps to improve quality of sleep through earthing (or grounding) and the desired stabilization of natural magnetic fields. So you can get those beneficial effects of being barefoot while you are sleeping on the comfort of your Samina sleep system.
We are electromagnetic beings. As such, we need to be grounded – just like our appliances! Think about it: our DNA is hard-wired from thousands of years of human existence. For the better part of that time, we walked in direct contact with the ground and directly connected to the Earth. There’s a reason we have more nerve endings in our feet than any other area of our body. Earthing (or grounding) creates the benefits of walking barefoot on the Earth’s ground due to the positive effects of the Earth’s electrons transferring to the human body.
In this age of an electronic-fueled society full of constant use of phones, laptops, and other electronic devices. We are spending a majority of our time indoors, detached from the earth’s soil. We’ve become so stuck to our electronic devices, we’ve on the verge of becoming hermits. This frequent use of electronic devices and being immersed by electro-magnetic radiation in our modern environments leads to static electricity in our bodies which can also be the culprit of health problems like sleep disorders, headaches, tiredness, and inflammation. Grounding with Lokosana helps restore natural sleep and a balanced electrical state of your body. Generally speaking, people who sleep grounded report falling asleep faster, sleeping deeper and realizing the benefits from an improved quality of sleep.
The Lokosana grounding pad promotes natural electricity. It acts as crucial piece in the Samina healthy sleep system, but can also work with any bed. The pad operates through a current-less connection from an electrical outlet, integrating the grounding component. It can also work indirectly without having to touch you while being layered within the different mattresses and pads of the Samina sleep system. Bio magnets inside the pad also helps to restore the balance of the earth’s magnetic field, covering most of the body. Unlike other similar products, Lokosana uses a high amount of silver embedded in an organic cotton fabric which becomes a better conductor of electricity than our own highly conductive bodies. This means that instead of you becoming bombarded with EMF’s, Lokosana does letting you sleep more soundly without this unnecessary interference. Although highly effective, it is also pricier due to the silver content.
Overall, health and healing through earthing is the effect that Lokosana sets to achieve. The Samina sleeping system is full of multiple components that all combine to support natural and healthy sleep for every individual.

Currently, we live in the golden age of technology. Our modern electronic devices, gadgets, and appliances have seamlessly integrated into our daily lives. We’ve become attached to these devices, so much that they’re always with us, even when we sleep.
However, these devices are releasing an EMF (electromagnetic field) that is negatively affecting our sleep and our bodies. You may have thought that sleeping next to your phone while the TV is on was harmless, but the fact is that it can cause sleep deprivation, depression, and even emit radiation. To prevent your bedroom from becoming a danger zone, here are the effects that can be emitting from your everyday devices and how we can prevent these EMFs from affecting us.
EMFs are wireless energy waves that surround electronic devices. Specifically, these are artificial EMFs since they’re created by human technology. According to the WHO, EMFs have an effect on us since our bodies have their own electric and biochemical responses. Now, focusing on sleep and EMFs, think about what type of electronics are usually around your bed. TV, cell phones, alarm clock, electric blanket, baby monitors, lights, and laptops are among the many gadgets and appliances in your bedroom that can cause you serious health effects and sleep loss. Some of these effects include insomnia, mood disturbances, relationship problems, reduced immunity, and poor work performance. Here’s what to look out for before you go to sleep.
Cell Phones: The true fact is that our very own cell phones can emit a form of non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation on body tissues that are near it while we sleep. The effect is that it disrupts our sleep patterns and immune system. Also, the blue light on cell phones can slow down the production of melatonin, the hormone that controls our sleep cycle. If we are using our phones up until we sleep, it will keep reducing melatonin, thus making it harder for us to stay asleep.
Electrical Devices: This includes TVs, stereos, and air conditioners. These wired, electrical devices emit strong electrical fields, even when they’re off. Same as phones, these devices can reduce melatonin and cause sleep loss. Some of us love to watch TV before we sleep and sometimes we might fall asleep while the TV is still on. However, according to Dr. Guy Meadows of the Sleep School, sleeping with the TV on can lead to depression. With these devices, we will have a hard time reaching our deep level of sleep which could lead to poor moods when we are awake.
Bedroom Lighting: Exposure to your lights right before you go to bed can potentially disrupt your sleep cycle. Especially from CFLs (compact fluorescent light bulbs), which can also emit electromagnetic radiation.
WiFi: Sad, but true. WiFi is the main contributor to electromagnetic radiation. Although you may not use it sometimes, it still continues to run throughout the house.
Voltage: According to the Gerson Institute, voltage in your house is a constant electric field that can affect every cell of your body. The electrically charged particles in your cells (ions, protons, and electrons) are constantly attracted, causing agitation during sleep. Electric fields will commonly come from circuits and power cords, so even when the appliance is turned off, the EMF remains.
Many solutions to the EMF problem are simple; turn them off and keep them away from your head before you sleep. The extreme solution would be to keep these devices in another room. Make sure to unplug all your electronics and appliances in your bedroom as well. For us, cell phone addicts, limiting the usage of our phones before we sleep will help us get into sleep better, plus turning on airplane mode will reduce the EMF, so the affect will be minimal. For WiFi, you may need to get a wired router instead if you are very sensitive to EMFs.
Hopefully, now that you know what EMFs are and their effects, you can apply this knowledge to keeping your bedroom radiation-free and get back to sleeping peacefully again. We, at Samina, are happy to endorse healthy sleep as we are committed to creating bed products that can help fully realize this ideal. We are fully committed to helping people get renewed energy and overcoming sleep loss. Preventing EMFs is just one of our many ideals toward achieving healthy sleep.
