We live in a crazy modern world that keeps on changing, moving and developing. One of the fastest areas of development is in the tech realm. This technology is life changing in a good way, but it also comes a myriad of new ways our bodies are put under pressure if not used consciously.
Most of us have heard of electromagnetic fields (EMF) or electromagnetic radiation (EMR). There are 3 main types: Radio Frequency / Microwave Radiation – this is from mobile phones, wireless technology, towers, baby monitors & 5G. Low Frequency Magnetic & Electronic Fields – from power lines, your home’s wiring, appliances, electronics and devices. Dirty Electricity/Power Quality – from solar, dimmer switches, compact florescent light bulbs
Majority of us have more wireless devices than shoes; car keys, smart phones, smart TVs, wireless keyboards and mice, headphones and speakers, SMART meters and appliances, wireless smoke alarms and security systems, GPS Systems and devices, tablets, computers, music players, wearable techs, baby monitors, play boxes (Playstation/Xbox). Some people run their homes by artificial intelligence; Alexa or Google. No doubt there are obvious benefits; convenience, productivity and efficiency, but there is also a downside; EMFs or EMR. Being constantly surrounded by this soup of electro-pollution has a cumulative effect and can lead to some serious health complications if not addressed. There has been much scientific research; over 8000 peer reviewed published studies that suggest the radioactive frequencies coming from your electronics and devices are harming you. This energy appears to be disrupting natural electrical impulses within our bodies that control a wide range of biological processes essential for good health and wellness. And these biological effects are resulting from low, non-thermal levels of non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation – levels considered safe by regulatory bodies.
Some linked health conditions are listed below:
- Heart Problems (pain/pressure, palpitations, arrhythmias)
- Fertility Issues
- Sleep Disturbances
- Muscle/Joint Pain Leg/Foot Pain
- Fatigue and Weakness
- Numbness and Tingling Sensations
- Tremors and Muscle Spasms and pain
- Sinus Problems
- Digestive Issues
- Skin Problems (itching, burning, facial flushing)
- Behaviour/Learning Problems
- Concentration Issues
- Memory Problems
- Mood Issues (depression, anxiety, irritability)
The wiring in walls is also most people’s single greatest exposure point to electromagnetic fields. This exposure can affect both sleep and the immune system. It is also the easiest to reduce or remove.
Then there’s “Dirty Electricity”, which are surges coming from your street power lines or solar panels sending power back to the grid. Electrical equipment and appliances can then exacerbate this. Dirty electricity then spreads through a building via the wiring and creates an unsafe living environment.
What does this all mean for our health?
“Humans did not evolve as biological organisms to live in this type of world, and we continue to alter the electromagnetic profile of the planet at a rate faster than life can evolve to adapt and cope with these changes. The result is genetic mutation, biological dysfunction, and disease.”
Martin Blank PhD, Author of Overpowered and leading EMF Expert
Is it all doom and gloom? No of course not. But you have to be smart. Get your home tested if you don’t feel right about your home environment or you want to ensure it IS safe.
Detailed testing and if you are lucky, simple strategies can be put in place to greatly reduce the EMFs in your home.
If you are someone who experiences “electromagnetic hypersensitivity” or EHS, this can be very debilitating. Electrix all Blew has experience of working with such cases over the years with great results for our clients.
Regarding 5G; It’s here, despite all those that oppose it and it’s promised to be life changing. As a result, we might not have a say as to how much our bodies are exposed to EMFs when we are out and about. BUT we do have a say about how much is found in our homes. If we can give our bodies time to recuperate and not be constantly inundated, our bodies will be better prepared to take on the day when it is hit with EMFs. It is the down time that is vital, the rest and recovery time.
So don’t get stressed. Be smart. Get your home tested and perhaps take on some suggestions that are listed in the next article to help yourself. Educate yourself.
