What a $500 Harmony Stone Taught Me About EMFs and Sleep

0
The answer to this question, like most questions in life, is complicated. Let me start with a little background sleep on me and my partner. I would describe myself as a sensitive sleeper; avoiding caffeine or foods that are too close to bedtime and require at least eight hours in a cool, dark, quiet environment. My partner, on the other hand, is a classic troubled insomniac – he is regularly restless, overheats easily, and suffers from night terrors and sleepwalking episodes. To combat these bedtime woes, he tried all the sleep aids, from CBD gummies to melatonin-magnesium pills and the harsher stuff prescribed by doctors, while participating in more scientific practices such as stretching, breathing exercises and eating at least three hours before filming In terms of EMF emitting devices in our bedroom: we have a television and we both sleep with our phones plugged in directly next to our heads on the bedside tables . My partner is strict about phone use and blue light in bed, while I’ve been known to doom myself to sleep.

To make this test even more interesting, I didn’t tell my partner about the Harmony and plugged it under my bedside table where he wouldn’t see it. It made no noise once it started, so the only way I could tell it was on and “working” was by its glow (pictured above), which I had to conceal – at secret purposes and my personal sleeping preferences – under a shoebox.

After enduring a particularly restless night before the device was installed, our first sleep with the Somavedic Harmony was oddly restful. My partner and I broke down in a way we both described as “deep” the next morning. As I sipped my coffee the next day, I wondered – with my none the wiser partner – was it our exhaustion that made the sleep so intense or the magic EMF-fighting stone hidden under my bedside table? After a week of keeping the stone parked next to my bed—and a restless evening or two that I attributed to too much caffeine—there was a strange, almost heavy sleepy effect that weighed on me as I went to bed each night. With each passing week, I noticed a general downward trend in my partner having to get up and change rooms in the middle of the night (a tactic he employs to combat particularly severe bouts of restless legs) . Maybe it was because I felt more at rest and nagged him less when he started tossing and turning. Or, it could be because he was tossing and turning less. Did the stone magic work or was it a placebo effect?

Now, three months later, I often forget the Somavedic is there. Despite slacking off after the first month and not carefully tracking my sleep quality, as I sat down to write this review, I realized it didn’t really matter. Much of my ability to sleep is rooted in my mindset. If I can’t close my mind, I can’t achieve deep sleep. Whether or not Somavedic’s EMF technology works to harmonize my sleeping space or not, maybe it “worked” by allowing my mind to unwind enough for relaxation – and sleep – follow suit. However, is the peace of mind promise worth nearly $500? Given the hazy facts behind the functionality of this device and my own unscientific approach to testing it, I’m not sure I recommend it. But, after revealing its existence, my desperate sleeping partner would say otherwise. He spent most of an evening Googling EMFs and Somavedic, prompting a bedtime request to remove the hidden Harmony Stone from his shoebox and place it back on his coffee table. bedside.

The question, therefore, seems less about whether the Somavedic worked or not – because I haven’t a clue how anyone could definitively discern that – but more about how much you’re willing to pay for a damn damn eye. If a $500 EMF blocking stone gives you peace of mind and a restful night’s sleep, then more power (and forty winks) for you.
