It’s True: You Really Can Protect Yourself Against Electromagnetic Radiation – Here’s How

By  Carolanne Wright

The average person usually doesn’t realize they are jeopardizing their health by innocently clicking away on the computer or talking on a cordless phone. Linked with cancer, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue, miscarriage and a host of other devastating diseases, electromagnetic fields (EMFs) are a serious modern concern. And exposure is almost impossible to avoid. But with diet and a measure of awareness, the dangers of EMFs can be reduced.

Hidden hazards

Created by cell phones, power lines, computers and microwaves, as well as other electronic and magnetic devices, EMFs wreck havoc on the body. These fields induce brain fog, forgetfulness, anxiety, depression and chronic fatigue in those who are sensitive. The following three common appliances emit strong electromagnetic radiation and cause a variety of health disorders:

Microwave –  Cancerous growths, headaches, fatigue, dizziness, hair loss, muscle and heart impairment, blurred vision and increased cholesterol.

Computer –  Erratic heartbeat, sleep disorders, miscarriage, severe headaches, thyroid malfunction, loss of energy, stress, dizziness, poor memory and decreased libido.

Cell phone –  Insomnia, memory loss, dizziness, nausea, poor concentration, hair thinning, eye problems, respiratory complaints, tinnitus, brain tumors and aneurisms.

Needless to say, protecting oneself from EMFs is crucial for well being.

Unplug and preserve wellness

Completely avoiding  electromagnetic radiation  is impossible. Yet minimizing exposure lessens the damaging impact on health. The first rule of thumb is to turn off and unplug appliances when not in use. Next, avoid Wi-Fi networks — especially in the home. Fully charging laptops and then unplugging when ready for use is another way to minimize  EMF  exposure. If the computer needs to be connected to a power source, make sure plugs and power strips are located far away from the body. Steer clear of halogen and fluorescent lighting. Both technologies produce substantial  EMFs. LCD lighting is a safe alternative. Cordless phone? Avoid DECT technology — it transmits a strong radio frequency signal, even when idle. Keep the handset away from the body by activating speaker mode. The same for cell phones. If this isn’t possible, use a tube headset. Even with lower levels of exposure, it is still important to fortify the body in order to avert  health  issues.

Prevent and repair damage

Grounding the body as well as using key foods and supplements improves resiliency to EMFs.  Earthing  is an excellent practice to ward off the harmful effects of electromagnetic fields. Simply stand barefoot on a dewy patch of grass or walk along a sandy beach for at least ten minutes each day. Learn more  here. A nutrient rich diet is also essential. Below is a list of edibles and superfoods that protect against EMFs:

– Iodine

– Vitamin D3

– Sea vegetables

– Spirulina

– Noni

– Curcumin

– B-complex vitamins

– Melatonin

– Tulsi (Holy Basil)

– Omega-3 fatty acids

– Glutathione

– Sulfur

– Selenium

– Zinc

In addition, consuming high  Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity  (ORAC) foods is vital to prevent and  heal  DNA damage from EMFs. Good choices include: artichokes, cranberries, red beans, pecans, pomegranate seeds, rosemary, asparagus, blueberries, walnuts, prunes, cruciferous vegetables, cinnamon, dates, broccoli and cilantro. Always remember to select organic for ultimate nutritional power.

Even though living in an age of Wi-Fi and all sorts of EMF spewing gadgets is hazardous, we don’t have to be  victims of this invisible menace. Tend to the diet, ground the body and unplug appliances whenever possible. By taking these precautions and proactive steps, modern living need not be so dangerous.

    Thank you. It’s always great to read information about countering the effects of EMF. Such an important topic. Thanks for sharing.

    Electromagnetic radiation has been shown time and time again to have no links to cancer. In Denmark a study of 420,000 cell phone users (almost 1 tenth of the Danish population), some of them had been using cell phones for over 20 years, has conclusively shown no link between cell phone use habits and cancer. The radiation emitted by your cell phones/microwaves etc.. is non-ionizing meaning it will not mutate dna or effect anything on the cellular level. You tin foils should really check these things before you scare monger.

    Um. This is all rubbish.
    EMF is a wave, it travels through the air, imagine a ripple from a stone in a pond.
    As it passes through our body it causes our cells to move also. Its true that all electronics emit these fields, however the sun emits them too, in fact any time you pass an electronic current through a conductor one is generated. The same as anytime you pass a piece of conducting material through an electromagnetic field, the metal will “generate” current.

    These fields are at different wavelengths depending on factors that arent important, whats important is what will actually make a change in our body.

    Well a microwave oven operates at 2.4Ghz frequency. So does your home wireless phone, and a number of other wireless devices. When these fields pass through human tissue they do have an effect. The same effect they have on meat in the microwave…heat is generated. No electronic current is generated, our body is a closed circuit. Our brains run on microvolts. If any current was being induced inside us from this radiation we would likely die as our heart and brain etc went haywire.

    So now you are worried we are cooking ourselves with our phones and whatnot. Well yes…HOWEVER…our bodies are designed to dissipate heat. So if you were to be put in a steel coffin along with a mobile phone, no heat was allowed to leave the chamber and the phone was constantly emitting radiation, you would cook. Of course a mobile phone at its strongest is still thousands of times weaker than a microwave oven, and a microwave oven takes say half hour to cook one kilogram of meat. An average human weighing 70 kilograms would then need 35,000 hours of exposure inside this vessel without a single btu of heat leaving in order to cook.

    If you want to try an experiment do this. Get a 9 volt battery and one piece of wire, and anything that a magnet sticks to. Wrap the wire tightly around the metal object in a tight coil. Connect both ends of the battery to the wires. Now the piece of metal will pick up other pieces of metal as long as the battery is connected. This is due to the electromagnetic field being emitted by the wire turning the piece of metal into whats known as an electromagnet. The metal straps the field and we can then visualise it by attracting other metals with it. Ok so thats 9 volts, a fairly small voltage in the grand scheme of things. Now if you want to prove to yourself these fields dont hurt you, wrap yourself in an extension cord the same way, plug one end into the wall and the other end into anything that will turn a light or something. (this is required, as you cant just run one single wire back to the power point without shorting the house.
    The same field is running through your body now. But your tissues are allowing the waves to pass through, whereas the metal in the previous example was capturing the waves. And thats the key. If you think that somehow the extension cord acts differently to the wire wrap it around a metal broom handle and do the same experiment, it will pick up other metal objects.

    The amount of emf you submit yourself to for even a second inside that coil is going to blow away anything you passively pick up walking around. And You will be fine.

    Earthing yourself will do nothing, as there is no additional current being generated so nothing will go down the earth channel. Hell heres another experiment…get a multimeter, put it on its most sensitive VOLTAGE setting range. (0.1v). Hold one probe in each hand, record the voltage. (there will be a small amount as the sweat reacts with the metals etc..dont worry you arent leaking electricity)

    Now wrap yourself in the extension cord and do the experiment again, you will see a small difference as the waves pass through the metal of the probes, record the difference. Now wrap the extension cord around a pillow, touch the probes together inside the coil and record the difference. You will see that this whole page is a huge time waster.
    This page is talking about magic and using scientific words to scare people, but the science says this:

    As EMF passes through living tissue, the only effect it has is to cause the water content to heat up a small amount. Living tissue then reacts and dissipates the heat.

    If you have an apple device, download iEMF and you will be able to visually SEE the strength of this field as you walk around.

      While you are completely correct in what you’re saying in regards to the the EMF waves passing through our body and not having an instantly measurable effect – they still do have an effect when subjected for long periods of time (heard of cancer clusters around cell phone towers? as an example)

      Scientists have found that DNA responds/changes to electromagnetic frequencies as well as “communicate” with other DNA strands (unsure what they mean by communicate however) via electromagnetic frequencies.

      There’s a science show hosted by morgan freeman “Through the Wormhole” and it talks about leading edge science. One of the topics they talked about was inducing religious experiences via putting a magnetic field device on someone’s head and subjecting specific parts of the brain to strong emf fields. This induced strong religious experiences in the individual.
      Saw a video of this guy who had created a similar device called “transcranial magnetic stimulation” that could cause you to temporarily forget how to talk, remember etc when these magnetic fields were created in the right manner.

      UV light, Gamma and ‘X-Rays’ are all EMF’s and their damage on tissue is much more than just simple heating.
      Who knows what the spectrum of radiation from electronic devices and their wireless capabilities can do to the body especially in long term exposure. There aren’t many UNBIASED scientific studies on the topic. I say unbiased because many big science institutions are funded by big companies who want to protect their income – at any expense. For instance the people who regulate and study the effects of cell phones and their possible damage are owned by the telco companies themselves… that’s just one of many examples.

      Watch a documentary called Resonance – Beings of Frequency. It talks about EMF and how it does more than just ‘heat up tissue’ and is really a good documentary.

      Saying that someone’s idea, belief or understandings are “rubbish” is just ignorant and arrogant. You need to understand and accept that you may not know everything, no matter what it is you think you know. You need to realize that you might be wrong no matter what you have been taught, and who you were taught by. New information comes out all the time, often debunking or contradicting previously known knowledge.
      We as a race currently have a 0% perception of reality. EMF fields and energy frequencies are infinitely small and infinitely large. The Light we see (an EMF btw) along with all our current digital technology occupy a very small percentage of the full EMF spectrum. We cannot even perceive 99.9999%+ of the true frequency spectrum.
