An increasing number of people suffer from electromagnetic radiations, sometimes without knowing it. Some even develop EHS (Electromagnetic Hyper Sensitivity), which makes them incapacitated to deal with everyday life. Symptoms of sensitivity to electromagnetic frequencies include headaches, lack of concentration, depression, extreme fatigue, stress, sleep disturbances, skin symptoms like prickling, burning sensations and rashes, pain and ache in muscles and many other health problems.
The fact that electromagnetic radiations have a detrimental effect on our health is controversial; the multi-billion telephone industry has no interest of people finding out the truth. They base their denial on the fact that there is no scientific study to prove anything. I takes 40 years to conduct a study that builds up evidence in the scientific manner. The most thorough study about the long term effects of EMFs on our bodies is called Cosmos, it was launched by the Imperial College (London) 20 years ago, so the full results will be available in 20 years (2036). Meanwhile, doctors make a parallel between growing numbers of brain tumours and cell phone usage, and other health practitioners witness the negative effects on patients on a daily basis. In my opinion, there is no doubt that we should all adopt the principles of precaution. If we can’t prove the danger of EMFs, we can’t either prove it is safe! We should all learn (and teach our children) how to protect ourselves from an over exposure to cell phones and cell phone towers.
With over 7 billion cell phone users in the world, it hard to avoid EMFs. In the US, people affected with EHS gather in a wifi-free town called Green Bank. In Switzerland near Zurich, a real estate development is under construction, and it will offer housing solutions for EHS people.
During the day, you can lower your exposure with a series of measures, such as :
– Never hold the phone directly against your head or body : when speaking on a cell phone use speakerphone, or wired earpieces, or hands-free devices, or air-tube earpieces.
– When it’s on, don’t carry a cell phone close to the body. Examples: don’t carry a cell phone in your pocket, don’t tuck a cell phone into your bra. Even when you’re not using your cell phone, it emits radiation while it’s on.
– Beware of weak signal : when signal strength is weak or blocked, your phone works harder and emits higher radiation. Use a corded landline more often.
– Keep it away from children : children will absorb at least twice as much microwave radiation as adults. Pregnant women should keep cell phones away from their abdomens.
– Don’t use your cell phone in a car, elevator or underground parking.
But it is even more important to understand that the night is the privileged moment when our brain detoxify and our cells regenerate. This is when we have to create the best possible environment to allow our body to fully rest. In the presence of EMFs, the body can’t make this detoxifying/regenerating work properly. This means leaving the cell phone outside of the bedroom, or if not possible, to put it in airplane mode. Sleeping with a mobile under the pillow like I used to do in my past life is total madness!
All patients I have checked so far have their electric field weakened when holding a cell phone next to the ear. The test kits I have in my practice allow me to see how much EMFs impact the patient’s energy, and to identify what equipment is the most detrimental (W Lan, Wi-Fi, GSM, Cordless phones (DECT), Bluetooth, etc).
After doing lots of research on this topic, I found out that “shield” devices are very efficient to help with protection. At home we have them on our computers, tablets, mobile phones, wireless earphones, and router. As I had quite a high demand, I have started to store my favourite brand (from the UK) to make it easier for my patients to get them. Check my “Products” page for more information.
For more information on the matter, I invite you to consult the website ElectromagneticHealth.org, a good source of information. Here’s a quote from William Rea, MD, Founder & Director of the Environmental Health Center, DallasPast President, American Academy of Environmental Medicine : “Sensitivity to electromagnetic radiation is the emerging health problem of the 21st century. It is imperative health practitioners, governments, schools and parents learn more about it. The human health stakes are significant”.
If you are interested to know more about the EMFs subject, I encourage you to watch the documentary Mobilize released in 2014. It explains the political/economical context in which the debate of the EMFs toxicity takes place and gets a full view of the problem. Wi-Fried? is another short and very well documented video – a must-see! More specifically on health, here’s a podcast by Dr M Rau, MD, Medical Director of the Paracelsus Clinic, Switzerland..
