EMF is becoming a buzz word in media circles. What is it? Electric and magnetic fields. They exist in nature, but they are also human made in the form of electric currents and voltages. Invisible to the naked eye but still all around us. If you could see it, it would permeate just about everything. If you could hear it, it would sound like constant tapping. The problem is some people are sensitive to the signal put out by electrical appliances or so they say. There is even a term for it, Electrical Sensitivity. Your home is no doubt full of EMF generating devices, but you probably want to keep all of them. So, what do you do to protect yourself?
The suggested solutions are quite simple. You can buy a case for your phone. You can buy a case for laptop radiation protection to lessen the exposure. Don’t hold your phone in your pocket as some studies suggest that in itself can cause cancer. Grounding is a simple fix. All that means is walking barefoot on the ground. If you can’t get to ground level too often, there are grounding mats that you can buy and lay on the floor to mimic the effect. Healing crystals are available if you're so interested. You can turn off your wifi when not in use. If you have any smart meters, have them removed. Only the electric company wants you to use it but there’s no requirement that you have one. The easiest and cheapest solution is to turn everything off and go outside. Laptop radiation protection is essential if you leave it on your lap.
Getting into more specifics is a little tricky. Conflicting opinions and studies can leave a consumer bewildered. But let’s try anyway. Even if you don’t know who to believe, you can do some things like, of course, keep your phone away when not in use and use laptop radiation protection. You can even try a landline as people did in the olden days. Microwave ovens are so convenient, but they also generate energy that some think is harmful. Keep using it but don’t stand in front of it or stand close to it when you're using it and if you have an old microwave oven, definitely get rid of it and buy a new one. And just like the other devices mentioned, don’t use it if you don’t have to, try cooking on the stove as the pioneers did.
As mentioned, wifi is better left off when not in use, but is it that bad? Children seem to be the most vulnerable since they are still in the growing stage. One study of kids in high tech classrooms shows them complaining of all manner of ailments after classroom wifi exposure. Things like dizziness, racing heart rate, weakness, anxiety, fatigue, feeling faint, problems concentrating, and even chest pain are complaints some have. Then there’s the old standby, electric power lines. Try not to move too close to one. EMFs have four significant dangers according to studies, one, they cause cancer, two, they affect brain function, and three, may even cause dementia, and lastly, may result in loss of antioxidant defenses.
Try to be proactive. A healthy diet can ward off so much in the way carcinogens and nasty EMF signals. Yes, there’s even a diet for this and it’s all mostly yummy stuff. Pecans, pomegranate seeds, rosemary, asparagus, blueberries, walnuts, prunes, broccoli, cinnamon, dates, cilantro, holy basil, omega-3 fatty acids, noni, spirulina and vitamin d3 are all recommended to help protect your brain-blood barrier. Even if you don’t have wifi, it’s all still good, eat it anyways.
