A few months after his close encounter experience, Whitley Strieber was diagnosed with a possible case of multiple sclerosis, but so mild that it was designated as subclinical. Since then, he has had minor episodes of MS-like symptoms. Clint Ober claims that Earthing will help relieve such symptoms, so Whitley agreed to try Earthing for six weeks, then report on any effects. He also has severe sleep problems, and grounding is supposed to improve that, too.
Listen as Whitley and Clint Ober discuss the theory of why grounding may work to relieve various symptoms, and the effect sleeping grounded had on Whitley.
Whitley was given an Earthing mat for the purposes of testing. He was not financially compensated.
