Electro Magnetic Frequency, or electro smog, is becoming a huge concern in our world today. We are exposed to EMF everywhere we go, whether by Wi-Fi devices, cell phones, tablets, computers, cell phone towers, stray voltage, and more. It is nearly impossible to escape it! If you haven't listened to my podcast episode on Electro Magnetic Frequency (EMF): What You Need to Know and How Homeopathy Can Help? please take a listen. This is such an important topic in our world today that I wanted to take another look at this in my blog as well. In the podcast I discuss recent studies on EMF, some health complications from it, and some ways you can reduce your exposure.
Living in a world of technology has many advantages…but it also has its disadvantages. The natural world, like our body, produces Electromagnetic fields; these fields, however, are low in intensity. The Earth and the Sun even produce electromagnetic fields, but these fields are too weak to harm us. Some natural electromagnetic fields, such as sunlight, even have a positive effect on us and is life-supporting.
But what about other Electromagnetic fields?
The technology in our world today produces much more intense Electromagnetic fields which can cause several health risks. What is so scary about these, is that you cannot see them or hear them, even though they are all around us! Electrosmog has become a threat to our health, and it is so important to take a look at this issue.
Mobile phones, Wi-Fi systems, baby monitors, Bluetooth devices, microwave ovens, electric power lines and similar sources of “electrosmog” are disrupting nature on a massive scale. Do you have any of these in your home? Most of us do!
So what are some of the risks?
Swiss Harmony.com states that “In 2011, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified electromagnetic fields as “possibly carcinogenic to humans, based on an increased risk for glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer, associated with wireless phone use.
With the intensity of electromagnetic fields constantly increasing from phones and other Wi-fi products on a near-daily basis, this is something we all need to be aware of. The new LTE/4G data transfer frequencies marks one more step in a direction that makes more and more people sick. These illnesses from EMF are often referred to as Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Syndrome (EHS).”
What is Electrosmog and how is it Created?
“Electrosmog results from the accumulation of different electromagnetic influences in one area. A single source of radiation, such as a bedside lamp, generates an electromagnetic field that may be potentially harmful, but alone is not electrosmog. However, stronger sources of radiation, such as Wi-Fi routers and Smartphones, do create electrosmog even by themselves.
A combination of sources could also be problematic: a clock radio, TV, and a cordless phone in one room at the same time would generate electrosmog. High intensity radiation coming from cell towers, mobile phones, cordless phones (DECT radiation), utility meters, power lines, and even the wireless technology of a neighbor’s apartment or house exponentially increases the amount of electrosmog in your home.”
There are different kinds of Electrosmog; The magnetic field, the electric field, Electromagnetic direct current (DC) fields, Low-frequency alternating (AC) fields, High-frequency alternating (AC) fields. The one least harmful to humans is the manmade direct current fields, or DC fields. This would include battery-operated appliances, including your cellphone if it is in airplane mode. One of the most dangerous types of electrosmog are the High-Frequency alternating or AC fields. These fields penetrate walls and cannot be switched off. They have a transmitter that generates them, like a Wi-Fi router. However, they do not need a receiver to have an effect on you. Some examples of these are cell phones and cell towers, Bluetooth devices, Wi-Fi, microwave ovens and more. In the modern world, most of us are surrounded by these!
Electrosmog even affects our hormones!
EMFs can even alter the production of hormones in our bodies, which are essential to our health and immune system. If you have electrosmog surrounding you in your bedroom, your melatonin levels may be decreased by more than 50%! (Bioinitiative report 2012) Melatonin is a natural hormone produced in the body by the pineal gland. This wonderful little hormone helps us with sleep and relaxation as well as helps to strengthen our bodies' immune system. Do you have poor sleep at night? Perhaps EMFs are responsible! EMFs can disrupt our melatonin levels, causing all sorts of problems!
“Research has also shown that consistently low melatonin levels increase the likelihood of cancer and can cause existing tumors to develop at an increased rate.” Swiss Harmony.com
This is a very scary statement!
Electrosmog is invisible and few notice the effects. If you experience electrosmog sensitivity you may notice headaches, difficulty concentrating or dizziness. It can even cause depression, anxiety, and cancer.
Do you have towers nearby? You can search for towers in your area by going here.
So what are some things that can help reduce exposer to EMFs?
Unfortunately in our modern world we are surrounded by Electrosmog. But there are some things you can do to help reduce your families exposure. You can buy a landline, get rid of your microwave oven, use a cable to connect to the internet in your home instead of Wi-Fi router, as well as getting rid of electrical cords that are under or near your bed.
The statistics are finally beginning to trickle into us here in America. Other Countries have been aware of these effects and have begun to protect themselves. Finally, we too, have access to this knowledge and to products that can help protect our families. It’s simple and effective!
One of the products that I recommend using to help reduce EMF is Biozen. Biozen is a small stick that you can apply to any device in your home, such as Wi-fi router, printer, baby monitor, etc. And you can even place one on your cell phone to render it safe to carry. I have one on my cell phone, computer, Wi-Fi router, and wireless printer. Biozen is amazing! Unfortunately I am no longer able to offer Biozen in my store, but you may still be able to find their products elsewhere online.
I also highly recommend using Q-Links products. They offer a variety of products for devices, spaces, or wearable pendants. We personally use the pendants and the Q-Link Nimbus in our home, and have noticed a big difference. (see link below)
Swiss Harmony also offers a wide variety of products for EMF protection.
So my Suggestion… become knowledgeable about EMF and its harmful effects, and then use a Q-Link product, or other like products that render EMF’s harmless; on our phones, electronics, in our homes and workplaces.
My God Bless You and Yours,
