Are Electromagnetic Fields Affecting Your Health?

What are electromagnetic fields?

Radiation emitted from wireless devices, cell phones, Bluetooth, cordless phones, power lines, smart meters, cell towers, MRI’s,and X-rays are forms of electro-magnetic radiation.

Wi-Fi is the second most prevalent form of wireless technology in North America next to cell phones. The router you have in your home is sending out radiation constantly. So is your cordless phone, cell phone, Wi-Fi printer, and baby monitor.

Are you Electro- Sensitivity?

Electromagnetic Sensitivity is a condition in which adults and children develop intolerance to radiation from wireless technology devices.

Symptoms of Electromagnetic Sensitivity can include:

  • tingling in hands and feed
  • pain in the head when using a cell phone
  • headaches
  • sleep disturbance
  • nausea
  • dizziness
  • tinnitus
  • night sweats
  • cognitive and memory problems
  • racing heart
  • heart palpitations
  • burning sensations
  • rashes
  • nose bleeds
  • noise or light sensitivity

Humans are electric beings. Our brain, heart and nervous system are electric systems. They work using electric frequencies and pulses and emit electromagnetic fields, therefore all humans are affected by external and man made electromagnetic fields.

Children are more vulnerable to develop ES as their skulls are thinner, and their nervous systems are still developing.

The World Health Organization recognized ES as a real condition in 2015.

This past year I have been very ill. Diagnosed with Lyme Disease, Epstein Barr, SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) and Adrenal Fatigue. One of my symptoms is a burning tongue and burning skin. It is quite uncomfortable and has been a puzzle to figure out what causes it.

It’s so important to reduce your exposure to EMFs if you have Lyme Disease.

Figuring it all out

Wanting to know more, we decided to hire a building biologist to measure our home for EMF’s.  Mark is an architectural engineer and got into this field because his young daughter developed ES. He worked tirelessly with her school and within their home to lower EMFs so she could heal.

The first thing Mark did was measure radio frequency in our home, this comes from cell towers, cell phones and routers. Ours was off the charts, How could that be? We had turned off our Wi-Fi over a year ago because we use ethernet cables to connect to our computers and phones.

What we learned was that many companies have a lost and found signal in their routers that cannot be turned off. We decided that day to get rid of our Rogers router and bought a router than can be turned off. This actually saved us money and reduced the radio frequency in our home quite a bit.

We also learned that the homes around us were generating Wi-Fi signals into our home from their routers, Wi-Fi printers, baby monitors, and cordless phones.  Therefore we reached out to our closest neighbours to see if they would be open to reducing their Wi-Fi signal. Did you know you can turn your Wi-Fi signal down? Or would they be open to my husband building a mesh box (faraday box) that could be put over their router? Lowering their Wi-Fi signal will not affect their computer speeds. Most of our neighbours were eager to help (only one has not responded), and thanked us for teaching them about the hazards of our current technology.

Mark then measured for magnetic and electric fields. This comes from power lines and dirty electricity in your home. It also comes from your lamps, dimmer switches and other electrical outlets in your home. Our bedside lamp was emitting huge amounts even when it was turned off – who knew. Think about this, it’s right beside your head when you sleep, your chair when you watch TV or read at night.

Since we have power lines behind our home the magnetic and electric readings were higher than what is recommended. Since we also have dirty electricity we will need to work on that. Not sure what can be done about the power lines, perhaps plant more trees or get Hydro to move them?

Mark offered us so many options to reduce our exposure to electromagnetic fields.

Cancer is one of the leading causes of death in our country, why not do everything you can do lower your risk. Turn off your Wi-Fi at night, switch to ethernet cables, lower your Wi-Fi signal and turn your cell phone off when not in use.

Saying No to 5G

There are many option to lower electromagnetic field exposure. But with 5G coming no one will be able to shield themselves which I believe is wrong and unfair. This fifth generation requires  a whole new infrastructure with many cell towers, most likely on every hydro pole or light standard near your homes. Elon Musk and other governments want to launch 500,000 satellites into space to provide 5G everywhere on earth. Don’t you think that’s going to affect your health, the health of birds, animals and the planet?

Some countries and states are starting to say NO to 5G! Hawaii has just called a halt to 5G development in their state.

Everyone should have the right to opt out of Wi-Fi and EMF radiation if they want to. If 5G comes to Canada that will no longer be an option. Plus, wtih 5G your personal data will be easier to access –  your security will be severely compromised.
