Electromagnetic pollution is everyone’s concern.
We currently live in an environment that is teeming with the highest levels of electrical pollution ever known to humankind.
Our preoccupation with our health is at its peak too. There is greater awareness of nutritional requirements, optimal exercise and stress reduction, yet we are surrounded by insidious environmental toxins that are negatively impacting our health on a daily basis.
It is estimated that 3 to 8 percent of the population in developed countries experience serious electrohypersensitivity symptoms, while 35 percent experience mild symptoms.
Environmental toxins are hard to detect and often not that easy to avoid and they can interfere with our health at a the cellular and DNA levels.
It has been shown that living cells interpret the exposure to electromagnetic pollution as part of their normal cellular activities. Just think of your heartbeat and brainwaves. The issue is that artificial electromagnetic pulses aren’t “normal”. They have unusual intensities, signaling characteristics, pulsing patterns, and wave forms and can misdirect cells in a number of pervasive ways.
Some of the more obvious symptoms include, insomnia, migraines, lack of concentration, cognitive problems, arrhythmia, tinnitus, stress and depression through to cancers and cardiovascular issues.
Whilst we may not be able to detect electromagnetic radiation exposure, we can find its numerous sources. Mobile phones and their chargers, all wireless devices through to the wiring in our walls, extension cords and even baby monitors are part of the pervasive “electromagnetic soup” to which we are all exposed.
Being aware of electromagnetic pollution is a first step which allows us to systematically ‘cleanse’ our environment. This should start with our bedrooms and our workspaces and filter through to all areas where we spend any length of time.
Shielding against electromagnetic pollution outside is a more complicated issue. Cast your mind to a hospital environment, or a school, large office buildings through to train stations and airports. However, we believe this issue can be tackled one step at a time.
For now, we suggest you start with expanding the health in your own indoor environment, this will go a long way towards boosting your long-term health.
In another blog we will discuss a number of ways to help protect you and your loved ones when you are out and about.
