The term EMF is often used to represent Electro-Magnetic Field. Others use ELF, which stands for Extra Low Frequencies. In terms of the effects on the body, both of these terms essentially represent the area we wish to address and be of help with. Andrew Weil, M.D. says "Electromagnetic pollution (EMF) may be the most significant form of pollution human activity has produced in this century, all the more dangerous because it is invisible and insensible."
We live in an invisible sea of electromagnetic field radiation. Subtle energies constantly swirl in and around our bodies, whether or not we are aware of them. Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) used to be energy waves with frequencies below 300 hertz or cycles per second. The electromagnetic fields we encounter daily come from every day things such as power lines, radar and microwave towers, television and computer screens, motors, fluorescent lights, microwave ovens, cell phones, electric blankets, house wiring, and many other things. Technically, anything that is plugged in or runs on a battery is putting off a field that is destructive to the body. Worst of all are the things you simply can't live without: cell phones, bluetooth and wireless internet! Yes, these are all saturating your cells at all times. And we havn't even begun talking about 5G!
Scientists estimate that the average daily exposure to EMF radiation is 100 million times higher than it was in previous generations! More Here
If you do the research, you will find just about any symptom or condition as possibly caused by EMF. Dr. DeHaan does not feel that EMF is the single cause of any condition, but it does act as an extra irritant to the body. IF you take two people to an area with measurable EMF, one may feel the effects and one may not. Just like one person might eat gluten and feel fine but the other gets serious intestinal cramping. The gluten and the EMF are not the real causes, but they are triggers to some deeper issue that keeps that person's immune system from optimal function in the presence of those irritants. But know that if you are one of those that never feels ill effects from EMF, they are causing some damage on a cellular level, and that will eventually accumulate to an issue. It is highly advised and certainly prudent to protect your body from the inescapable ELF.
There are many kinds and forms of "EMF Shields" on the market. They are called diodes and go by many other names. Dr. DeHaan has tested a great many of them. Although companies report the very nice things you read about their products, he found that a great majority of products either stop being effective over a short time, meaning they do not offer the EMF protection as advertised, or worst, they become negative! Many of these devices simply become charged with all the negative energy they are supposed to be shielding you from. When this happens, the innocent user is actually getting harmed by wearing the device.
EMF toxicity is a real thing. The best thing to do is expose yourself the least amount possible. Here are a couple of suggestions.
- Stay away from smart devices as much as you can, limit time with them.
- Do not wear these devices on your body, like smart watches.
- Use cables for your internet, plug devices in to the router rather than using Wifi.
- Set a timer so your internet box shuts off during the times you are sleeping.
