Why Do I need EMF Protection?
First we have to consider that the human body is a battery. It runs on the electricity. Anything which conducts electricity will have a magnetic field. This is basic physics, not even quantum physics. Part of the issue we are facing collectively is that we have been conditioned to believe we are only matter: flesh and bone. We are, but we are also much more than that. Humans as well as all animal species are as bio-electrical as it gets. We come complete with north and south poles and an electrical field.
Electricity is the flow of electrons along a wire or cable....we have to consider that our nervous system functions via electrical impulses. Modern medicine makes use of these fields as diagnostic tools to measure our EEG, (brainwaves) EKG, (heart rhythm) and in MRIs (magnetic resonance imaging) for example.
The field around the body, known as the aura or coronal discharge, has been known and documented for thousands of years by indigenous peoples of the world, and these cultures have different names for the human energy field such as chi, qi, prana, mana etc. In modern science it is referred to as the “bio-field” or "bio-plasma". Plasma is the 4th state of matter, the radiant aspect. We humans are as radiant as the sun and our vitality or "charge" can be high or low, depending on how much stress we are under. The human bio-field or aura is widely acknowledged as a barometer of basic vitality in alternative medicine.
The natural state of the human aura (field of coronal discharge) functions best when it is simply allowed to harmonize in natural earth frequencies as it has always done. These organic frequencies are known as the Schumann Resonances and are coherent fields within which all life on earth has evolved.
In 1939, Russian scientist Semyon Kirlian, accidentally discovered how to photograph this coronal discharge when he found that an object placed on a photographic plate and connected to a high-voltage source, will produce a corresponding image on the plate.
Second, we have to consider that our cells and indeed our DNA itself are antennae; receptors and transmitters of frequencies. This fact has incredible implications for frequency based medicine, which is in use in the alternative sector, but not being pursued as swiftly by mainstream institutions who seem to favor chemical medicines which can be patented.
Our cells are our building blocks…, we are only as healthy as our cells. Thus, they are implicitly important to our basic well being and our biological homeostasis.
As a conductor of narrow micro- currents, the electrical flow within the human ranges from approximately 60-70 microamps, which normally flow in organized paths through the body, these subtle flows can easily be disrupted by unnatural frequencies which are in turn interpreted as stressors.
In today’s world, these unnatural and incoherent electrical and magnetic fields are all around us. These fields are emitted by power lines, home wiring, home appliances, and of course cell phone radiation and WIFI, and are far out of the bandwidth of the natural Schumann resonances. These unnatural frequencies which are also incoherent, that is, not in phase with each other, have a scrambling and depleting effect on the human bio-field.
EMF “smog” or radiation is thus interpreted by the body as stressor, and is of course, in addition to all tangible outer stresses that one typically encounters in life. As you can see, stress can add up and take its toll.
The basic fact is humans are electro-magnetic in nature and exposure to unnatural electromagnetic radiation affects cellular behavior, which in turn can impact your health. The fact that PEMF (Pulsed electro-magnetic fields) are actually used currently in conventional medicine demonstrates that it is already known that EMFs can and do affect cellular and thus overall health.
The EMF concept was summarized by the pioneering scientist Dr. Robert Becker, author of the book “The Body Electric.” Dr. Becker spent his career researching the electromagnetic nature of the human body. Toward the end of his book, he wrote a summary which was basically a warning about the dangers of EMF radiation, and this was in 1985, before cell phones and WiFi!
There have been many studies done by government institutions related to EMF radiation. Some examples are below:
In a study conducted by the National Toxicology Program, part of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, rats exposed to EMF radiation used by cell phones (900 MHz) led to "Clear evidence of an association with tumors in the hearts of male rats. The tumors were malignant schwannomas."
Another study conducted by the National Toxicology Program to investigate potential damage to DNA from EMF exposure found that "RFR exposure was linked with significant increases in DNA damage in the frontal cortex of the brain in male mice, the blood cells of female mice, and the hippocampus of male rats."
In a 2011 press release by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, part of the World Health Organization of the United Nations, classifies "radio-frequency electromagnetic fields [EMF's] as possibly carcinogenic to humans".
The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, a federal government agency, in a 1998 report based on population studies concluded "that electrical and magnetic fields around power lines, home wiring, home appliances and some industrial uses should be regarded as a 'possible' human carcinogen that needs further research."
Even as long ago as1981 NASA commissioned a study called "Electromagnetic field interactions with the human body: Observed effects and theories" which concluded "Nonionizing EM fields are linked to cancer in humans in three different ways: cause, means of detection, and effective treatment. Bad and benign effects are expected from nonionizing EM fields and much more knowledge is necessary to properly categorize and qualify EM field characteristics."
So why are we not protected by government regulations?
One wonders why our governments do not impose stricter regulations to protect the public from the repercussions of EMF radiation. One answer to that question is apparently that regulators are currently focusing only on partial aspects of EMF radiation. For example, current regulations for protection only consider thermal (heat related) aspects of non-ionizing radiation (from your cellphone, appliances etc.) and assume if it is not creating heat-based damage it is therefore safe.
There is a growing body of evidence demonstrating health consequences from EMF exposure from researchers and scientists from universities and research institutions from around the world, some of which can be found here:
