The Silent, Invisible Environmental Killer
There are so many things in the world we live in that we can see or touch that we know can damage our bodies and destroy our overall health. There is one thing that is little talked about but takes a small drip approach over time to hurt our bodies ability to function properly and contributes to many people’s inability to live long healthy lives. This long-term killer is called EMF. What is that?? It is ElectroMagnetic Fields which are comprised of electric and magnetic fields perpendicular to each other, which travel together in an invisible wave form. I am in no way an expert of this area, but after extensive hours of research I feel confident in the information I have included in this writing.
Two Types of EMF
EMF’s come in two different types low and high frequency. You may be familiar with some of the high frequency contributors which have higher frequency than visible light and are ionizing radiation such as X-rays, Ultraviolet (UV) light, and gamma rays. There is no question that too much exposure to one of these can create health problems. . If we stay out in the sun too long, we get sunburned from prolonged UV exposure.
Health effects of low frequency EMF radiation are more controversial for many reasons:
First, symptoms due to use of microwave ovens, smart meters, WiFi, cell phones, etc. can be inconspicuous at first, but they may become noticeable over time rather than immediately.
Second, the electronic and telecommunication industries have strong financial interests in consumers not being aware of potential harm from using their products.
The human body is sophisticated Electromagnetic Machine
We have long known that the human body is a sophisticated electromagnetic system. Our nervous system and our heart run on electricity, which explains why we can shock a dead heart into life using an electric shock machine called a defibrillator. Back in 1969, Dr. David Cohen, professor of Physics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology was able to detect the magnetic fields from the human heart and brain (source).
Naturally, we have evolved with the natural EMFs, i.e. that of the earth and the sun which synch with our healthy biological rhythms. Earth has its own magnetic field, which is why we can always use a compass to find the north pole no matter where we are. Earth’s EMF is called the Schumann resonance (7.83 Hz). The sun is a big source of natural EMFs, including visible light and UV radiation.
Human EMF is weak in comparison
Our own electromagnetic signals are very weak compared to the man-made EMFs. Exposure to man-made EMFs can interfere with the electromagnetic systems inside of our bodies. Specifically, the brain, the heart, and mitochondria can be particularly susceptible to EMF interference. In addition, because our own biology can get disrupted, EMF exposure can worsen inflammatory problems.
SYMPTOMS Related to EMF Exposure
Chronic high levels of low frequency EMF exposure can result in:
- Brain fog
- Dizziness and vertigo
- Frequent illnesses
- HPA axis dysfunction (also known as adrenal fatigue)
- Hormone imbalances
- Cancer or increased in cancer risk
HOW TO AVOID EXPOSURE
So the next question is how can I avoid or at least mitigate the effects that EMF’s have on our health? I put together some things you can do to begin to reduce the load of EMF’s in our day to day lives. None of us are going to be able to avoid this exposure on a daily basis since much of our lives revolve around the technological advances that have brought more EMF’s into our lives, but give these a try at home and be confident that you are doing all you can to protect yourself and your family from this exposure.
Avoid Living Near Strong Sources of EMF Radiation
Very strong sources of EMF radiation can present significant health risks. These include smart meters, radio stations, electrical generators, power lines, and electrified train tracks. An Italian study found that adults and children who live within 3 km of a high-power radio station are at a higher risk of developing leukemia than others (source). Therefore, you want to consider having these EMF sources removed or moving away from them.
Limit EMF Exposure At Home
It may not be possible to avoid using electricity and devices that generate EMFs, but it is possible to reduce EMF exposure. This is particularly important in the bedrooms or when sleeping. We can reduce EMF exposure by:
- Keeping appliances and devices off, or on airplane mode as much as possible
- Hard wire internet connections, rather than using WiFi
- If WiFi use is necessary, only turn it on when in use and turn off the WiFi router at night
- Hard wire computer peripherals rather than using wireless or Bluetooth connections
- Ensure that your homes electrical wiring is done properlyto minimize EMFs
- Keep electronic devices, i.e. cell phones, tablets, and computers away from your body. This includes using head phones to make calls instead of placing the phones near your ear to speak
- Sleep away from circuit breakers or large appliances that run overnight, including if the appliance is on the other side of the wall
- Use protection tools such as Defender Pad under your laptop, and EMF shields for cell phone
- Filter out dirty electricity using dirty electricity filters
Minimize use of digital devices when possible. Even better, take regular digital detoxes.
Mitigate Negative Health Effects of EMF Exposure
With high coverage of cell phone and power line networks, it is not possible to completely avoid man-made EMF exposure. In addition to taking steps to reduce EMF exposure, we can mitigate the negative effects by
- Grounding– it allows our bodies to neutralize positive ions from electronic devices and re-synchronize with the Schumann resonance.
- Exposures to negative ions such as being near moving water, Himalayan salt lamp, or a negative ion generator can mitigate negative effects of exposure to EMF radiation.
Eating a nutritious diet high in antioxidants can help mitigate some oxidative stress from EMF exposure.
Now that we have scratched the service of the information regarding this topic go use it to begin to empower yourself to taking control of your own health.
