How to Empower Yourself Against a Growing Health Threat – Electromagnetic Frequencies EMFs
Electromagnetic pollution (EMF) may be the most meaningful form of pollution human activity has produced in this century!” ~ Dr. Andrew Weil, Leading Health Expert
The amount of electricity in our ecosystem can be overwhelming to think about. Our ecosystem is saturated with invisible EMFs from electrical wiring, appliances, Wi-Fi., computers, appliances, cell phones, hydro and cell towers, etc.. EMFs affect every aspect of our physical, emotional and mental health and contribute to every disease and disorder Many different terms are used when talking about the electricity that is in our ecosystem. You have probably heard them: electromagnetic field, electromagnetic radiation, magnetic field, electric field, microwave, EMR, ELF and so on. It is not important to define these terms or discriminate between the different types of electricity; the important thing is, that all disorganized non biological electricity is a threat to our physical, emotional and mental health. The term “disorganized” is intentional, because some forms of manmade electricity are used for therapeutic purposes. This article does not concern therapeutic electricity. In this discussion, “EMF” will be used to refer to non biological disorganized electricity; EMF is an abbreviation for electromagnetic field, and is often used to refer to unhealthy manmade electricity.
Manmade or artificial electricity has been used on the planet for 120 years. seemingly, with the introduction of wireless technology, artificial electricity can now be measured everywhere on earth. Ours is the first generation to be saturated with EMFS. You don not need to be reminded about the pervasiveness, especially in the city of Toronto where we have more than 1,000 cell phone towers dotting our scenery. Our city boasts of having its own Wi-Fi network blanketing the downtown chief. The proliferation of electricity in our lives seems to be endless. Merchandisers have started to put microchips in clothing, footwear and other goods and are doing so without our knowledge. These microchips are designed to send encoded electrical messages to data collection agencies that will track consumer habits. Researchers have already micro chipped humans and there is talk of doing so nationwide. In British schools, teachers can already give lessons using Wi-Fi white-boards, and in the near future hand-held Wi-Fi terminals will permit children to ‘interact’ with digital lesson. In the words of the technology’s industry group, the Wi-Fi Alliance: ‘Simply put, Wi-Fi is freedom.’
We cannot avoid EMFs in our ecosystem. We can however effectively safeguard our health and heal our bodies.
You may be wondering whether or not EMF dangers are real. After all, there are researchers and authorities who insist that EMFs are harmless. So, many people believe that the subject of EMF health hazards is controversial and needs more research. The truth is, thousands of scientific research papers are published every year that document the health risks associated with EMFS. These studies have shown that all EMFs, in spite of of range or frequency have damaging consequences. You’re probably asking why then, are educated researchers telling us otherwise? The reason is simple. These researchers are looking for a direct cause and effect relationship, when none exists. Studies have shown that there appears to be no rhyme or reason to the symptoms. Researchers can take a group of people claiming to be electrically sensitive, expose them to identical frequencies and have reports of many different kinds of symptoms. One person who claims to be sensitive to EMFS will have an negative reaction to one kind of EMF but not to anther, while a 2nd electrically sensitive person will express no responses at all. So, the researchers who are looking for direct cause and effect relationships conclude that symptoms in response to EMF exposure are psychosomatic-an artefact produced by the strength of suggestion.
A good portion of recent research comes from Sweden where they have officially recognized electromagnetic hypersensitivity or electro sensitivity as a medical condition. This is a condition where someone experiences physical or psychological symptoms that are aggravated by EMFs at levels that most people can tolerate. Symptoms include:
Dr. Ollie Johanssen, a Swedish neuroscientist has declared, that based on his research, he expects 50% of the world population will characterize symptoms of electro hyper sensitivity by the year 2017. This might seem to be an extremely bold claim. Keep in mind, however, that the effects of EMFs are cumulative, making us increasingly more sensitive to EMFS as we get older.
In addition to the symptoms of electro sensitivity, there are many other physical complaints and disorders that have been connected to EMF exposure. There is also a wide range of emotional disorders and mental conditions that have been connected. The question that next arises is, why are EMFs indicated in so much illness and disorder? Very simply, it is because we are electrical beings with internal wiring. Every bodily function depends on electrical activity. Our body’s electrical system works to balance the activity of our organs. It represents the very foundation of the healing course of action. The flow of electricity in the body is as basic to the body’s well being as the flow of blood.
Our bodies conduct electricity that enters it. Studies have shown that when this happens, our electrical processes are disturbed, and cell functioning is disrupted. Further, that the implications are huge. They range from changes in blood chemistry to impairment of cell and organ activity. A few meaningful points; when exposed, to EMFS, cells react as though threatened by an invader. The cell enters into a state of emergency. The cell responds by reducing the permeability of its membrane wall. This makes it difficult for nutrients to go into or for toxins to exit. In turn there is an increase in free radicals. When the cell is in a state of emergency, instead of producing water and carbon dioxide, the cell produces hydrogen peroxide and carbon monoxide. In short, the cell begins to ferment. The state of emergency behaviour is passed on to each later generation of cells. EMF exposure more than doubles the release of mercury vapour from dental fillings and also triggers the expression of disease causing genes. EMF exposure damages DNA and interferes with DNA repair. Studies have also shown that cancer cell division is 24 times greater when the cancer cells are exposed to EMFs. There is also continued unending tension in the nervous system, that puts our bodies into a state of chronic stress.
Most scientists agree that the mechanism whereby EMFs impact the body’s nervous system is explained by the rule of cyclotronic resonance. (The information cyclotronic refers to spinning electrons. According to the principles of Cyclotronic resonance, energy is truly transferred from the electrical wiring in our buildings into the nervous system of people within the building.) Cyclotronic resonance causes the adrenal system to generate cortisol, stress hormones, and also causes ions, also known as electrolytes, to get kicked out of the cells. Specifically calcium, lithium, sodium, magnesium and potassium are kicked into the blood stream to either collect in joints or be inappropriately deleted. These ions, or electrolytes govern cell metabolism, calmness, mood and memory and are involved in most of the body’s chemical responses. ultimately, our immune systems begin to collapse.
There is seldom a single cause for illness. So, of course, EMFS are not necessarily the cause for illness. However, EMFs can be seen to promote and accelerate illness and to interfere will healing. Minimizing exposure to EMFS and obtaining effective EMF protection are basic for healing and prevention.
Based on the research, when you reduce your exposure to EMFs your healing energies flow more freely and the body begins to heal. Your nervous system and acupuncture meridian system are released from constriction. A calmness sets in. The pineal gland increases its production of hormones and important chemicals that control and effect physical, emotional and mental functioning. for example, there is increased production of melatonin, which is important for sleep, the inhibition of certain cancers and the functioning of the immune system. There is also an increase in overall energy. Cells no longer function as though in a state of emergency. in addition there is increased production, uptake and cell retention of important electrolytes such as lithium, potassium, sodium and calcium. These electrolytes or ions are important for every bodily function. Because your body becomes more efficient, you realize greater benefits from nutrition, supplements and healing therapies. In terms of emotional and mental changes, people report improved sense of well being, clarity, concentration, and improved anger management. The benefits that have been reported for children show that there is marked improvement in hyperactive ADHD and asthmatic children. There are reports of increased calmness, attention span and impulse control.
There are many EMF reducing practices. People who are sensitive to EMFs will find these practices especially advantageous. But every one should consider adopting any or all of the following practices, because minimizing your exposure to EMFs is part of maximizing your health.
Use a wired network instead of a Wi-Fi network
Use wired speakers and other electronic elements instead of wireless
When considering an alarm system for your home, opt for a wired system instead of a wireless system.
When using the computer, try not to keep up onto the mouse and learn keyboard strokes to replace mouse roles
Try to locate the computer tower printer and wiring away from where you sit
Opt for LCD Flat Screen computer monitors
Avoid placing a laptop computer on your lap when you are using it
Store your cell phone in a case or backpack or purse where it will not be right next to your body. When sleeping keep it at the minimum 5 feet away from your bed
Place your electric alarm clock at the minimum 5 feet away from your bed
Electric appliances and devices are surrounded by electric fields already when not turned on. So unplug these at night if they are in close closeness to your bed.
Instead of fluorescent bulbs, use incandescent or complete spectrum bulbs
If you must use a cell phone or cordless phone, use the speakerphone when possible. Don’t use a Bluetooth or earplugs that transmit radiation directly into the ear canal.
Try to avoid using a cell phone or laptop in a car or bus where the EMFs are intensified
Stay 2 to 3 feet away from someone who is talking on a cell phone
Avoid using waterbeds that need electric heaters
Substitute electric razors and can openers with manual versions
Find alternatives for electric blankets
Substitute a heating pad with a hot water bottle
Washing machines, clothes dryers, and dishwashers have large EMFs, especially when high efficiency. So try to run complete loads mostly. If someone is sleeping with the head of the bed on the wall behind these machines, don’t function the machine when they are sleeping
The larger the tv screen the stronger and larger the EMF, sit far back and again, don’t function if someone is sleeping directly behind the tv wall
When using appliances, try to stand 2 to 3 feet back. for example, when cooking on an electric stove, try to use the back burners more often
Children have comparatively more brain fluid and thinner skulls than adults, so they are more prone to EMFs than adults. A 1 year old child can absorb almost twice as much radiation per kilo as an adult. Try to teach EMF minimizing practices to your children while they are young so that it becomes part of their lifestyle. Don’t use a cell phone or cordless phone while holding a child. Most baby monitors use digital wireless technology and the EMFs that they produce can be more powerful than living near a cell phone tower. So concerned mothers will want to reconsider using these devices.
Lastly, sustain groups that want to keep cell phones and Wi-Fi networks out of schools, public buildings and public transportation.
