Today, we all are surrounded by equipments that release a huge amount of Electro Magnetic Frequencies (EMF’s). We all enjoy the latest technology and feel very proud when we own a latest gadget that runs through power. But none of us might have thought the amount of negative energies they radiate.
All the electrical appliances including cell phones, power lines, T.V, Refrigerator, microwave, AC, water heaters, heating pads etc release radiations that are harmful for human beings in a dwelling are known as EMF’s.
The transmission of electrical energy through wires, the broadcasting of radio signals and the phenomenon of visible light are examples of EMF. EMF always consists of both an electrical field and a magnetic field. It occurs in a wide range of frequencies, spanning what is called the electromagnetic spectrum. At the high end is cosmic radiation. At the low end is household electricity. The lower electromagnetic frequencies have been utilized by man to generate electricity and all associated electrical products, including all electronic communication systems and electrical appliances. Electromagnetic radiation (EMR) is often called an electromagnetic field (EMF) when it falls within the lower frequencies. Both EMR and EMF are commonly used to mean the same thing.
EMF, by some researchers, has been considered as the most invisible health hazard. More than one source of EMF in proximity to other sources will produce overlapping fields in the same area. Any metropolitan home or office environment in the world will be saturated by a variety of interpenetrating EMF from a variety of sources. The nature of EMF is very complex and the number of EMF sources is rapidly growing.
Unfortunately, the entire effect of multiple electromagnetic fields on human physiology is not completely understood. However, it is well known that low-frequency magnetic fields can trigger major biochemical responses critical to the functioning of human cells, which operate by complex electrochemical processes. The consequences of living in our EMF world may not be known for decades. Virtually all research on the serious health effects of man-made EMF has come to the conclusion that the adverse health responses from EMF are from long-term cumulative exposure Researcher Cyril Smith, in his book “Electromagnetic Man” states that, “man-made radiation, when added to the solar and cosmic radiation, combine to form Man’s natural electromagnetic environment. Within the last hundred years, man has greatly added to these with the multitudes of electrical and electronic signals and noise producing the vast increase in the amount of electromagnetic ‘smog’ permeating his environment.
Mr. Smith had a personal experience with the dangerous effects of EMF radiation. “At the present time the world is not becoming a healthier place in spite of high technology medicine.
What are the Sources of EMF?
When we learn about EMF, a big question arises in our mind that what are the sources of EMF? The sources of EMF in today’s world are growing at a very high rate and these sources are even not known to us.
Electricity is the most common source of power throughout the world because it is easily generated and transmitted to where it is needed. As electricity moves through wires and machines, it produces EMF. The power grids of nations consist of electrical generation, transmission and distribution facilities. As electricity is sent along the wires of the power grid, EMF is created. In cities, primary electric power distribution lines run across the top of utility poles and feed secondary transformers, which are then connected to the electric power meters of buildings. Once electricity is delivered to the user, it continues to produce EMF throughout the wiring systems of offices, homes, schools, factories and other structures. The appliances and electrical equipment connected to these wiring systems produce their own EMF as well. EMF at Work Place : In the workplace the generators of EMF include computers, cell phones, fax machines, copy machines, fluorescent lights, printers, scanners, telephone (PBX) switching systems, electrical instruments, motors and other electrical devices. EMF at Home : In homes, the immediate sources of EMF include electric blankets, electric water bed heaters, hairdryers, electric shavers, television sets, stereo systems, air conditioners, fluorescent lights, electric can openers, telephone answering machines, cell and portable phones, refrigerators, blenders, portable heaters, clothes washers and dryers, coffee makers, vacuum cleaners, toasters, and microwave ovens.
EMF is not only produced by electricity moving through wires or machines, but it is the nature of all television and satellite transmissions, as well as radio and microwave communication systems, including cell phones. Transportation methods such as automobiles, trucks, airplanes, electrical and magnetic trains and subway systems are significant sources of EMF.
EMF at Schools and colleges
At schools and colleges, people are exposed to EMF by the WiFi internet connections, computers, microphones, projectors, florescent light bulbs and even the electric bell that tells them that are free to go home.
EMF at play stations, shopping malls and a picture hall
At play stations, children are exposed to EMF by the game stations such as Xbox. Lifts, decorative lightings, escalators at the shopping malls are also considered to be a source of EMF.
While we are enjoying watching a movie, we are exposed to the high EMF zone as the entire premise is blocked from the natural light or natural air. The speakers, the rays from the projector to the screen, the surround sound system, the Air Conditioner, all are the sources of EMF.
Effects of EMF on human body
Various researches have revealed very shocking data about the effects of EMF on human body. In several hundred years, inspite of all the technological and medical developments in the world, man has made his own “Electrical Environment” that has caused him several illnesses. The symptoms may be seen may be years later but the effects are present today.
Your body possesses a remarkable ability to adapt to rapidly changing environments. But when your body is chronically bombarded by man-made EMF (electromagnetic fields), its innate intelligence and energy can become weakened. When your body’s ability to cope is impaired, it’s more difficult for your body to shield itself from negative influences. EMF, in effect, can knock your innate intelligence and energy “out of phase.”
You know why the airline captain tells you to turn off your electronic devices during take off and landing? The EMF generated by your cell phone and laptop wreak havoc on the plane’s navigational system. And they wreak havoc on yours as well. Some scientists estimate that you are now daily exposed to 100 million times the EMF radiation of your grandparents. Research shows that these fields have a significant disruptive effect on the natural energy levels of your body. Your body’s energy, as well as your cellular communication system, are altered by the high frequencies of EMF. Man-made radiation magnifies your body’s “fight or flight” responses, compounding your adrenal loads from other stressors and significantly reducing your ability to effectively cope.
EMF disrupts your natural energy levels, triggering stress responses. Both alternative and traditional doctors report that EMF is a co-factor in increasing your daily stress levels. Stress can impair your body’s natural ability to heal. EMF adds stress to your own stress and fatigue. EMF adds stress to your already taxed system. EMF contributes to energy depletion and fatigue from cell phones, air travel and household appliances.
Some of the common symptoms of EMF sensitivity which are found after several researches are:
Irritation in the eyes
Redness in the eyes
Loss of hair (premature)
Muscular pains and cramps
In rare cases, Brain tumor and even cancer.
Protection/ Remedies for EMF exposure
Find the spot where your electrical panel is located (sometimes also known as the circuit breaker box) and move your bed, your sofa or your office chair away from that area. Remember to look on both sides of the wall. The point is to spend as little time as possible around this area.
Do not sleep on metal. Get rid of your innerspring mattress, or box springs. When you sleep on these you are basically sleeping on a big metal grid. Replace with a latex mattress or an all natural futon.
Remove all electronic devices from your sleeping room – and especially ones that are near your head. This includes alarm clocks, radios, stereos, televisions and computers. If this is impractical, then at least unplug them while you sleep.
Choose a home far away from power lines. Large mammals in the wild avoid spending much time near power lines and so should you. They have been linked to cancer. Make sure your home is at least 1 km from them.
Recycle your microwave oven. Anyone interested in vibrant health should avoid eating or drinking anything from a microwave oven. Microwaves derange the molecules of food and water so that our bodies have trouble recognizing them.
Protect yourself from your electrical system. You can protect yourself from EMFs from you electrical system with a 15cm Tachyon disk.
Protect yourself from cell phone and cordless telephone radiation. If you use either of these gadgets, make sure to find a product that does a good job protecting you, otherwise you may be cooking your brain.
Protect yourself from computer screen and TV screen radiation. All screens and monitors give off an electromagnetic radiation that can sap your energy, make you dizzy, and cause eye strain. Use a 10cm Tachyon disk to protect yourself.
Replace fluorescent lighting with full-spectrum incandescent lighting. Fluorescent lights need electrical transformers called “ballasts” in order to function. These ballasts combined with the fluorescent bulbs put out much more EMFs than incandescent light bulbs
Buy only high quality electrical appliances and gadgets. Their superior construction will make a difference in the amount of distorted EMF energy you absorb.
You can buy products that neutralize the effects of EMF. These neutralizers are available in the market.
There are chips available in the market that can be sticked to the Mobile phones and help in neutralizing the effect of EMF. How to manage to reduce the effect of EMF from most commonly used appliances :
Microwave Ovens : Microwave Ovens emit electromagnetic radiation whilst they are connected to the power grid, and so therefore you should unplug the oven after use, or install a timer that disconnects the power line after a determined time.
Clock Radio : Clock Radios emit electromagnetic radiation whilst they are connected to the power, and therefore we advise against anyone using them on the bedside table or in the vicinity of the bed, but particularly EMF sensitive people.
Ring on the left hand : Please be careful to put rings on your left hand. Primarily it concerns the ring finger, although symptoms have been observed on other fingers. No logical explanation has been found for this phenomenon which is possibly related to the body energy fields, similar to those for acupuncture treatment spots. If you believe this may apply to you, try removing any rings for a few weeks, and observe any differences.
Compact fluorescent lamps : Electricity saving light bulbs can cause health disorders, as the electronic device, metals and mercury gas inside the bulb cause electromagnetic radiation. Therefore, we do not advise using electricity saving lamps in living rooms, particularly for EMF sensitive people.
Wireless routers : The router antennas for a wireless network can cause health disorders for EMF sensitive people. If you have a router with an adjusable antenna and by positioning the antenna to point in horisontal position or less than 45° upwards, these problems may be greatly reduced.
Electricity and Telecommunication Lines : The electricity in a household is more than 220V 50Hz AC due to the electricity provider’s use of control and surveillance and the inclusion of broad band in the electricity lines. High frequency radiation from the wall socket is fully measurable.
Many households also have broad band resulting in high frequency radiation entering through the telephone lines, and causing EMF sensitive people the same difficulties as those from electricity radiation.
Few more tips:
Can wear a Turquoise stone or even keep it in your pocket as it helps to absorb the effect of EMF.
Light up Rock Salt Lamp in the living area as they produce negative ions and hence they absorb EMFs.
Evaporate Camphor crystals in your home to decrease the effects of EMF.
Proper cleaning and changing the place of the electrical appliances have also helped in reducing the effects.
Keep away a nursing mother and child from Mobile phones as well as TV.
