Many would agree that technology does make our lives easier. Yet we find ourselves faced with illnesses that did not exist a short time ago brought on by the very conveniences that countless people enjoy today. The consensus among researchers is that rather than causing direct harm, EMF’s create subtle changes within the body that lead to serious diseases.
Extensive research throughout the world is being conducted over this growing worldwide health concern. Forward thinking governments and individuals alike have taken steps to bring awareness and to offer solutions for protecting citizens from the harmful exposure of EMF’s.
Other than the actual blocking of radiation, the most successful approach in dealing with the problems of exposure is to assist the body in the removal of damaging radioactive toxins from within out. This is accomplished through various detoxification methods which encourage elimination on a cellular level.
To detoxify these noxious by-products the following procedures are used: specific nutritional and dietary regimes, herbal remedies and sweating through saunas and nutrients.
Who is Susceptible to Radiation Poisoning and EMF’s?
- Anyone who has been previously or is currently exposed to the following circumstances:
- Living near high voltage lines, radio and cell towers
- Laptops and computers
- TV, microwave oven, home entertainment systems, lighting, power cords (virtually all modern electronic devices)
- Smart Meters – a system for monitoring electrical consumption
- Fluroscopy/mammography or other medical x-ray exams
- Radiotherapy treatment
- Living near a nuclear reactor facility
- Working in nuclear processing industries
- Radioactive particles or higher ionizing radiation levels from other sources such as frequent flights in higher altitudes.
- Leukemia: Maria Feychting of Sweden’s Karolinska Institute examined 127,000 children who lived near big power lines for over 25 years and found twice the risk of leukemia.
- Brain Tumours: A study in the American Journal of Industrial Medicine reported a steep increase in brain cancer rates over the past 12 years among the general public. Individuals working with computer monitors are developing primary brain tumours at nearly 5 times the expected rate.
- Fertility problems: The risk of miscarriage amplified 3 times higher as the exposure to environmental pollution increased among women.
- EMF’s and Melatonin: The hormone melatonin is secreted by the pineal gland. Studies indicate that EMF exposure can shut down melatonin secretion in the body.
- Madga Havas is an expert in the field of electromagnetic pollution. Professor Havas confirms that some individuals are sensitive to electromagnetic fields (EMF’s) emitted by wireless devices such as DECT cordless phones. “DECT” is a European standard for wireless communication technology
Concern in DECT Technology
There are several areas of concern emanating from the proximity of this wireless communication. DECT cordless phones emit radiation full-time whether the phone is on or off. A survey of EMF home inspections found DECT phones in more than 95% of homes. The market has also expanded into many of the new baby monitors.
NOTE: DECT cordless phones are now banned in schools throughout parts of Europe.
Other EMF’S symptoms:
- Breast cancer
- Birth defects
- Lou Gehrig’s
- Chronic pain
- Heart irregularities
- skin rashes.
Natural Solutions to EMF Pollution
- Potassium Iodide is the preferred thyroid blocker for those personally handling radioiodine and as a treatment and prevention of radiation sickness.
- Cysteine hydrochloride is an amino acid used for its protective qualities against radiation by halting the free radicals generated by ionizing radiation.
- Seaweeds, Brown seaweed (Modifilan) Blue green algae, Chlorella: Seaweeds are whole perfect foods that protect the body against radiation and assist in the detoxification process.
- Macrobiotic Diet: Recommended for any form of radiation treatment or sickness.
- Dandelion, Licorice Root, Milk Thistle: These herbs are regarded as an essential component in any liver or kidney elimination and repairing procedure.
- Raw Vegetable and Fruit Juices encourages the body to cleanse naturally while providing it with a high quality and easily assimilated form of nutrition.
- Kombucha Tea is a fermented beverage that has shown to be a potent detoxifier.
- Epsom’s salt and Baking soda baths help the body extract all forms of radiation.
- Calcium Bentonite Clay is an effective radiation detoxifier which may be used internally and externally.
- Calendula, Zinc oxide, Aloe vera: For skin irritations and burns.
- Senna, Cascara Sagrada, Black Walnut hulls, Vitamin C, Antioxidants, Niacin, Sweet potatoes, Spinach, Parsley, Asparagus: This group of plants, herbs and nutrients alleviate the side effects of radiation while offering protection as well as amplifying the expulsion of many toxins.
- Detox Body Cleanses: Liver and Gallbladder flush – Bowel and parasite cleanse – Kidney cleanse.
It is impossible to live our lives without exposure to some form of EMF frequency. Be that as it may, we can still maintain control over the amount and frequent exposure; by deciding what proximity our homes are to power lines; by controlling where electronics are placed in the home to minimize our daily onslaught of radio waves; by installing blockers in the areas you live and work in; by employing health regimes to eliminate radiation from the body through cleansing programs and diet; and by simply being and staying informed about the hazards and consequences of technology as it continues to advance.
