If you’re reading this, then you’re probably interested in your body’s own ability to self-heal and in the energy that we generate, transmit, and receive. I teach a four-hour class on this topic, but for now, I’ll focus on one aspect: EMF (electromagnetic field). Almost everything on Earth produces EMF in some form. However, we need to differentiate between natural and man-made fields. These EMFs operate at different frequencies and have different effects. Earth’s EMF affects us differently from microwaves. The former improves our circadian rhythm, while the latter invokes sleep disruption. Some of these frequencies are beneficial to our health, while others have a negative impact. All frequencies have one thing in common, though; we can’t see, smell, or feel them. Some people are more sensitive than others, but all of us are exposed to EMF frequencies. Take air pollution for example. We could all be exposed to poor air quality, but only people with asthma, or similar underlying conditions, would have a severe reaction. Despite not being able to sense the EMF frequencies, we can all learn how to maximize our exposure to beneficial frequencies and how to minimize our exposure to harmful frequencies.
What makes people hypersensitive to EMF?
In my blog entries, I often mention the importance of inner peace. Everything within our bodies, our physical, mental, and spiritual states, need to be balanced. If even one part is compromised, it will impact the other parts. This is why we need to start with focusing on which of these four areas needs to be improved to bring balance back into our bodies. When we feel peaceful and grateful, we are more resilient. The majority of the time, this will require working with qualified professionals. Most people affected by EMFs have pre-existing conditions. Improving our physical or mental health with minimize the body’s reaction. Most of the time, when we mention electromagnetic fields, the conversation goes in the direction of wavelengths and frequencies. Radiation, both natural and man-made, also needs to be a part of this conversation as it has an accumulative effect.
There will always be people who deny the effect EMF has on the human body. We also still have people who believe Earth is flat. Nowadays, most people understand that we are all electromagnetic beings. We don’t call EKGs, EEGs, or MRIs witchcraft. So how would all this EMF pollution not affect us? It’s become a man-made environmental toxin, and it impacts us in many ways from infertility to brain tumors.
How can we minimize the effect of EMFs?
There are several steps that can empower you to take action.
1. Do your homework to better understand the negative effect of EMFs on your health.
2. Measure your exposure. Several types of EMF meters are available on the market. They will help you locate hot spots in your home or office.
3. Mitigation is the next step. There are a few easy-to-make adjustments to minimize exposure and improve your health.
Learn stress managing techniques, work on creating a positive mindset.
Take a hard look at your diet. Some herbs and vegetables are proved to be beneficial in EMF detoxification (rosemary, tart cherries, artichokes, hemp seed oil, coriander). Summer is the best time to boost our body’s resilience and flush out toxins. Stop at a local farmers’ market and take advantage of local and seasonal fruit, vegetables, and berries. It is one of the best and easiest things you can do for yourself.
When possible, use corded devices (keyboard, mouse, printer, headphones, etc.).
Check if your bed is by the wall where a Smart Meter is. If it is, move your bed to a different wall.
When possible, try to keep your cellphone in airplane mode.
