EMFs: The Hidden Health Danger You Need to Know About
What Are Electromagnetic Fields?
Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) come from electronics, WiFi, microwave radiation, cordless phones, wireless technology, high tension power lines, cell phones, baby monitors, and cell phone towers are sources of electromagnetic fields. Electromagnetic fields create tremendous stress on the body and nervous system, which can make it difficult for people to heal, especially if one has a chronic condition. Some options you have are to remove cordless phones from your home and use only corded phones, put your phone on airplane mode when not in use and keep it out of your bedroom. You may also be able to turn your WiFi off at night.
How Do Electromagnetic Fields Affect Your Health?
EMFs are inflammatory – EMFs contribute to the following four health issues:
1. Memory issues
2. Autoimmune disease
3. Any disease
4. Neurological disease
Symptoms you may experience from EMF exposure – Everyone is different in how they experience EMFs. Symptoms can vary widely. Here are some examples:
- Skin rash, burning sensations
- Trouble getting to sleep or staying asleep or feeling unrefreshed after a night of sleep
- Mood issues – irritability, anxiety, anger or any emotional imbalance (these are the most frequent)
- Brain fog, scattered thinking, and memory issues
- Tics, shaking
- Cancer – especially breast cancer, childhood leukemia and lymphoma from high voltage power lines
- Muscle and body aches and pains
- Digestive issues
Strategies to Reduce Exposure to Electromagnetic Fields
- Move all electronics, especially wireless electronics (cell phones, alarm clocks, television, computer, etc.) at least 2-3 feet away from your body or out of the room.
- Turn off WiFi at night. If you are very sensitive to WiFi, you may want to look into a hard-wired situation instead of using WiFi. However, be aware that if you live in a city or apartment building, you may still have “electrosmog” from neighbors’ WiFi.
- Replace cordless phones with corded phones.
- Use gas stoves instead of electric induction stoves.
- Limit cell phone and iPad use.
- Replace wireless mouse and keyboard with wired options.
- Consider a rural living location without high-tension power lines, cell towers or antennae or other satellites nearby.
- Do not have electronics plugged in near your head when sleeping or sitting in a room.
- Make sure you are not spending time near where the electric meter is in your home. In many buildings, there is one place for all of the meters. Avoid being near that area.
- Avoid fluorescent and halogen lights.
- Choose lower EMF products like baby monitors, hair dryers, phones, etc. (see links below).
- Eat a natural whole food diet to keep your body strong and consider supplements to strengthen your body.
Natural & Nutritional Tips to Strengthen Your Body & Protect from EMFs
The following supplements are great options to strengthen your body, mind and nervous system to protect from the negative affects of EMFs.
Adaptogens – Herbs that protect your body from emotional and physical stress.
Vitamin B12 – One good supplement to take if you are sensitive to EMFs is vitamin B12 (in its active form of methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin) because it helps to strengthen your nervous system and support organ health. See notes above about where to get B12 and how to take it. One of my favorites is sublingual B12, like Seeking Health Active B12. Put it under your lip or tongue and allow to dissolve as slowly as possible. B12 can help with digestion, energy, better sleep, better moods, nerve regeneration and organ health.
Minerals – Anderson’s Sea MD and real salt, like Celtic Sea Salt and Himalayan salt are great sources of trace minerals to keep your nervous system grounded, boost your energy and calm stress levels.
Triphala – An Ayurvedic herb that has beneficial effects on your digestion and nervous system. A great organic option is Ayush Trifal.
Shungite – This stone has been shown to have protective benefits against EMFs.
Here are some books and links to learn more about EMFs and how to protect yourself.
