“Having worked at the National Academy of Sciences for 10 years I thought there could be no problem with wireless radiation. Because if there were, I would know about it and so would my colleagues. Well, I was completely wrong.“
-Dr. Devra Davis, Hebrew University, Hadassah Medical School
“The fetus is probably the most vulnerable to these types of environmental insults. When the brain is just forming, when all of the organ systems are just beginning to develop, that’s when we are perhaps at our most vulnerable stage.”
–Dr. Hugh Taylor, Chair of Obstetrics and Gynecology & Reproductive Sciences, Yale School of Medicine
Have you heard of Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs)? These silent health killers are taking over our modern world. EMFs are all around us. They are the waves from your Wifi router, wireless phones, microwaves and really anything that is electronic, including just having the electricity running in your house.
There are two types of EMFs that we focus on:
- Low Frequency (LF)
- High Frequency AKA Radio Frequency (RF)
The body also produces it’s own EMFs that are not dangerous. Before our world became so modern, our EMFs were tied in with the earth. Now, people are too busy to connect with the Earth and their health is suffering. Read more about the importance of connecting with the Earth, here.
Low frequency EMFs come from all electricity sources. They are more mild but have still been shown to cause immune dysfunction, fatigue, chronic illness, chronic fatigue, headaches, difficulty losing weight, digestive disorders, sleep disorders, depression & anxiety.
……That’s just for the low frequency EMFs
RF waves come from anything that transmits wirelessly. It could be a cordless phone, cell phone, smart meter or a radio/cell phone tower. Check here to see how close any towers are from your house. A good rule of thumb is that if you can see a tower from your home, it might be time to move.
RF waves cause the same detrimental health effects as LF EMFs but enhanced. They have been tied to cancer, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, asthma, autism, ADHD, cognitive delay & more.
Okay, EMFs are bad. But WHY?
EMFs join in with all the other toxins in our world today to wreak havoc on our bodies. Kids and pregnant women are especially sensitive.
One of the bigger issues with EMFs is that they inhibit an enzyme in our bodies called calcineurin, which is a protein phosphatase that activates T cells of the immune system. This down regulation begins the effect of immune system dysfunction.
The immunosuppression leads to an increased risk in opportunistic infections like candida, lyme, ebstein barr, parasites and so on.
EMFs also open calcium voltage gated ion channels. This results in an pathologic increase in intracellular calcium. This creates cellular dysfunction.
We’re now seeing that this radiation damages our DNA and creates more stress hormones (Something to keep in mind if you’re having trouble losing weight).
The symptoms and effects on our bodies from EMFs ranges by the amount around us as well as our genetic disposition. If you have a chronic health issue (autism and any developmental delays included) like lyme disease it is of the utmost importance that you limit EMF expose as much as possible.
WE’RE SURROUNDED! How do you escape this stuff?
Well, unless you move to a RF free town (yes, they do exist for ultra sensitive people) you can’t really escape it. But there are many things you can do to limit your exposure.
- Turn off your Wifi at night. This is probably the easiest thing you can do to give your families bodies a solid 8 hour break.
- Turn off circuit breakers at night. Everything other than your refrigerator, if possible.
- Hard wire your computer/smart TV’s so there is no Wifi
- Ditch your household corldess phones and opt for a plug in
- If your house does NOT have a smart meter, don’t upgrade. If you do, look into covering it
Limiting your exposure is the first step. There are many EMF controlling devices on the market. Many have been proven not to work. But if they do, and you haven’t limited your exposure, they could focus the radiation on certain areas. Thus creating a situation worse than just letting the waves move freely.
After you have limited your exposure, here are some products that can help minimize your exposure further:
What you’ll need:
The first thing to do is purchase an EMF reader. Since you can’t see or feel EMFs (unless you’re ultra sensitive), it’s important to know what you’re up against. There are many EMF meters on the market, the ones that work well and give true readings tend to be expensive. There are many cheap meters on the market if you look at places like amazon. However, they can’t differentiate the different types of EMFs and tend to give poor readings. If you aren’t wanting to invest in one that you own, you can rent one, here. They also have meters available to purchase, should you want one.
A WiFi cage can dramatically reduce the “dirty” energy from your box while still leaving you a signal for your cell phone/smart TV/laptop to function properly. This one works great.
Smart Meter guards function similarly. Smart meters have huge amounts of RF. I would highly recommend covering it if you house (or apartment complex) has one.
This paint is amazing if you are trying to shield a room from a smart meter or protect yourself from your neighbors wifi. It works great for a baby nursery that doesn’t have a need for wifi (so no bluetooth baby monitors). However, it is very important that you take the steps of ensuring your house has been cleaned up of dirty energy before using it in the whole house. Otherwise you risk trapping the waves in one place. Testing is key!
