What is an EMF?
Everything in the natural world has an electromagnetic field, including every cell in our body! With that being said, everything that’s man-made also has an electric field (technology, home appliances, etc.). EMF stands for electromagnetic field, which is a measurable type of both electric and magnetic energy frequencies. Electromagnetic radiation is the energy emitted from EMFs and also holds the danger in these energy fields. Let me put it this way, just as there are good/bad carbs for our health, there are good/bad EMFs for our bodies.
Dangers in EMFs?
Artificial EMFs (smartphones, baby monitors, blenders, hairdryers, airplanes, power lines, etc.) interfere with the natural way our bodies work. The human body was designed with a very specific EMF frequency and is negatively affected when constantly plagued with unhealthy frequencies. The diseases and illnesses that come from overexposure include disturbed sleep cycles, stress, hormone imbalances, depression, chronic fatigue, vertigo, and diseases such as fibromyalgia and cancer. It’s actually pretty frightening how powerful EMFs are and how little our society knows about them. For more on EMF dangers, visit this link: http://www.best-emf-health.com/emf-emissions.html
Depending on the amount and duration of exposure, EMF pollution can take anywhere from a few seconds to a few years to cause damage to one’s body. Newborns, pregnant women, children, and elderly people are at higher risks of being affected by EMFs. With that being said, there’s no possible way to avoid artificial EMFs in our ever-expanding, technology-dependent society. What we can do, is increase our awareness and act on our new findings to protect ourselves and loved ones from constant overexposure.
How to Reduce EMF Pollution?
This is a great article with seven detailed tips for reducing exposure in your everyday life. A few of their reducing steps include using EMF meters, laptop shields, and plug-ins, using wires instead of going wireless, never putting your phone to your head, and turning your phone on airplane mode often. Along with unplugging and being more cautious, I purchased the EMF Solutions Master Plug-in and was incredibly impressed with their product and company. They called me personally to help with installation and to fill me in on how to best use the product. I couldn’t recommend their company more.
Another great way to reduce EMF pollution is to get outside, take your shoes off, and touch the earth. The earth’s natural frequency is incredibly healing and has been proven to lower the amount of free radicals in the body, which increase with long amounts of EMF exposure. My kids and I try to walk barefoot once a day in our neighborhood. We get some goofy looks, but it doesn’t phase me anymore. We neglected this beautiful source of healing for far too long!
Lastly, it can be as simple as awareness. Knowing that turning off your wifi, even just on your phone, at night can substantially reduce your exposure. Knowing that avoiding the use of the microwave, even just around your children, can be saving them from harm. Knowing that air pods are sending direct frequencies through your brain, it all could make you consider things you might haven’t before.
Before you go … We all are getting plagued with opinions more than ever these days. My goal is not to give you yet another opinion and tell you to believe it. You’re free to take what you want from this post. My intention, however, is to give you some facts and then help you look at things with a question mark rather than absolutes.
Below are a few readings and research articles that further explain the EMF epidemic. Take a look at these articles for more detailed and scientific information! It’s where I got most of my information on the subject.
