For people who are wondering why they are victims of static electricity more than the people around you.
Actually, there is such a thing as a static sensitive body.
In this article we will introduce the characteristics of a static sensitive body, and how to improve it.
Bzzz! 5 steps to improve a static sensitive body
- “Bzzz!” This is how static electricity occurs
- “Charged” people, who often create static electricity
- Symptoms that occur to people who are static sensitive

１・”Bzzz!” This is how static electricity occurs
Everything on earth, from humans to dust to clothes, has a plus and minus electrical polarity. Both polarities having equal balance creates a stabilized state.
But when substances touch each other and friction is created, unstable minus polarity electricity comes off, leaving plus polarity electricity.
The unbalanced state of plus and minus polarity is called a “charged state”. Depending on the substance, minus polarity electricity can also be left to create a charged state.
When you are in a charged state and touch anything that can pass electricity, plus polarity electricity in dry air tries to combine with minus polarity electricity inside metal substances or the human body. This creates “electric discharge”.
The “Bzzz!” that occurs when this happens is called static electricity.
２・”Charged” people, who often create static electricity
Anyone who walks and creates friction with their clothes can create a “frictional electrification”, as well as a “Peeling electrification” when they take off their clothes, creating an positively charged state.
But normally this electricity is naturally discharged and goes back to its original balanced state.
If the polarities are in a balanced state, static electricity will not occur.
But there exists people who discharge and create static electricity more than others.
The reason is that these people have a constitution which receives discharge stronger than other people.
Receiving strong discharge means that your body is still in a charged state even if you have naturally discharged.
３・Symptoms that occur to people who are static sensitive
Static sensitive people who are often in a charged state have unique symptoms which are a stiff neck, back aches, and coldness.
These symptoms occur because the blood of these people are sticky, due to disordered eating and sleeping habits.
When your blood becomes a sticky state, your body which normally is mildly alkaline turns into an acidic state, disrupting the balance of ions inside the body, causing negative ions to go out of the body, and turning the body into a positively charged state.
Adding to the static electricity caused when you create friction with your clothes, your entire body becomes consistently charged.
So, when you touch something that passes electricity well such as metals, you create more “Bzzz!”.
Your blood becomes sticky due to disordered daily habits.
Negative ions go out of the body.
Your body becomes positively charged, always in need of negative electricity, making you discharge more than others.
Therefore, you are lacking negative ions due to disordered daily habits.
By the way, negative ion dryers make your hair smooth since they control static electricity.
４・How to avoid static electricity by changing daily habits
To improve a static sensitive body, it is important to relieve your sticky blood state.
Eat foods and drinks that help improve sticky blood
- Green tea
- Oolong tea
- Barley tea
- Beer (limit of one large bottle a day)
- Blue fish (sardines, mackerel, horse mackerel, saury, bonito, yellowtail )
- Sea weed
- Welsh onions
Sleep in a regular schedule.
５・Ingest negative ions
・Drink mineral water
Mineral water is optimum for ingesting negative ions.
・Eat Nabe (pot meals)
The steam and vapor coming out of the pot contains negative ions.
・Take a shower
When the water from the shower hits the person or wall, negative ions are created.
・Visit waterfalls and fountains.
Negative ions are produced when the water splashes.
Who could imagine that the cause of creating excessive static electricity comes from daily habits. But some of you may think that even though you are living a healthy and well-regulated daily life. Of course, your blood health is not the only cause of excessive static electricity. Your clothes, shoes, and movements are also an important factor.
You may be making movements that cause excessive friction. You also may be wearing clothes that cause excessive static electricity.
If you spend your day wearing a fleece and wool sweater, you may as well call yourself an electric power plant. We will introduce clothes and shoes that produce excessive static in another article. We hope you take care and make your blood smooth, so you won’t electrify your precious people around you.
