Protecting Against Electromagnetic Fields
Sheila Yonemoto, PT
We’re living in a sea of invisible energy. There are radio and television waves, wireless energy and microwave energy. Medical instruments use various invisible energies (ultrasound, x-rays, MRI, CAT scans, PET scans, and radiation). How do we monitor the effects from these invisible rays?
In the 1980’s, Robert O. Becker’s book “The Body Electric,” revealed the damaging effects of living near high tension power lines, increased cataracts in people living near military bases and some promising data that energy medicine could be used for cancer treatment.
Now, researchers are finding that microwaves and wireless use similar frequencies because these are free bands available to use in commercial applications. Although these frequencies don’t have any thermal effects on tissues, long term exposure to these frequencies have damaging effects on biological beings, not just humans.
Wireless has been shown to cause changes in blood, where the red blood cells stick to each other into a coil, making it hard for the individual red blood cells to pass easily through a tiny capillary. This increases oxidative stress to an individual and reduces oxygen flow to tissues.
There is also evidence that electromagnetic fields increase calcium channel flow which can increase the ability of viruses to get into the cells.
Experts suggest reducing your exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF) by decreasing the use of cordless phones. Avoid holding cell phones next to your head and use the speaker instead. Some even sugget turning off your WIFI router when sleeping, and turning your cellphone to airplane mode at night, keeping the phone away from your head. Hardwiring computers with ethernet cables is also a possible solution.
Grounding, or walking around barefoot on grass, dirt, cement, tile, brick will unstick the red blood cells and counteract the EMF.
Some foods that can help counteract the effects of EMF include rosemary, yarrow, artichokes, cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower), whey and hemp oil, CBD, NAD and hydrogen water. Supplements that may help include magnesium and niacin.
We live in a technological world which gives us many benefits and conveniences, but there are also risks and we have to learn to navigate around that to keep ourselves safe.
