Every single one of these are things that you would never ever realize are a problem until you are ill. When you become ill your body is broken down and fragile, and every tiny thing counts. Every added burden on the body is one more hurdle to jump through to get well.
I used to think I could skip some steps, maybe some of these things just wouldn't be a factor for me. Wishful thinking perhaps? But what I am learning slowly is that in order to heal you must really genuinely commit to all aspects. Leaving out some parts of the process and hoping my body would manage was a mistake.
So, what exactly are EMF's? Simply put, EMF's are Electromagnetic Fields. They are invisible fields that are emitted from any electrical device (including all wireless devices). They are absolutely everywhere in our world today. If something needs electricity to run in any capacity then it emits EMF's. Looking around my room right now I see my computer, phone, ipad, heating pad, lamp, TV, DVR box, DVD box & an air purifier. All of these are emitting EMF's constantly. Also, what is often forgotten is things like WiFi; if you have it in your home then it has its own electromagnetic field that it is pumping through your home 24 hours a day.
Now you might be wondering, why should I care? Our bodies have their very own natural electromagnetic fields. Running through each and every human body is a highly sensitive natural resonance. The earth also has its own natural magnetic field, and the two of these work in synchrony. Many ancient healing practices simply revolved around grounding the body by standing barefoot outside so that the body and the earth can mesh and balance out. It sounds kind of loopy I know, but there is a calm that overcomes a person when you just connect with the ground.
The trouble begins when all these man made EMF's listed above start to pass through our body and they interfere with the natural fields inside of us. Symptoms are primarily seen in the nervous system with fatigue, anxiety, foggy thinking, depression and insomnia. Often times healthy people do not notice any symptoms from this at all. I used to think I was like that, probably because I was in denial about being separated from my precious wireless devices. I didn't want to believe that they could be hindering my health. However, upon much more further review it has become all too clear that I am indeed sensitive to EMF's.
Most people who become ill with a chronic illness will begin to notice that they are also sensitive to EMF's. It happens because the body is already in a dysfunctional state, and these invisible waves simply become too much extra added stress. I have spoke to many patients who started turning the Wifi router off at night and powering off electrical devices when they slept. They all noticed it made a huge difference in the kind of sleep they had. Cutting these EMF's off (or at least down) during the night when the body is working so hard to regenerate and heal is often the first big step to taking some of the burden off so that things can be restored.
As far as the rest of the day it is simply impossible to stay away from all EMF's. Unless you move into a hut in the middle of nowhere with no electricity at all, it just isn't realistic. But what you CAN do is make an active effort to protect yourself from EMF's. There are tons and tons of EMF protection products out there to chose from. They make individual cases for different electrical devices, small sticky pads that can be attached to items to diffuse EMF's, and even small pendants you can wear on your body that create a shield all around you where EMF's can not pass. For all of these products I have read hundreds of reviews, and the consensus is that people DO feel a huge difference when using them. A lot of symptoms they were suffering with simply melt away, and most notably they realize they are much more calm and their brain isn't so wired.
In the last 4-6 weeks I have purchased a few items for my protection. None of these were sponsored or paid for. I did all my own research and purchased these myself and am receiving 0 compensation to discuss it. As you can see from the photo above I picked out a phone case which protects from radiation (EMF's and radiation are two different things). This is important because its been long known that radiation can lead to cancer, and cell phones and computers both emit it. This isn't so bad except for when you place your phone in your pocket or place your laptop on your lap (or anywhere up against your body). The SafeSleeve iPhone case I got is cute and protects the phone well. I would definitely recommend it if you are looking for something to blend style and function. I also got the SafeSleeve leather laptop case as well to keep my laptop in when its in my room to diffuse radiation. When I take my laptop out to use it I place the SafeSleeve in my lap so it functions like that as well. However to be extra cautious (or when I don't want that leather case in my lap) I bought a Laptop Skin Shield which is a sticker you put on the bottom of your laptop that blocks radiation too. Basically, for my two most used electrical devices I picked SafeSleeve because as a brand it's functional, it's good and it's stylish too, which doesn't hurt!
The next item I chose is called the REN pendant. Essentially in very layman's terms this pendent creates a shield that circumvents your body and in that shield EMF's are diffused before they can get into you to create havoc. I chose this because it is WAY easier to walk around with 24/7 protection then to try and put a case on everything electrical in my home. Especially since I have an electrical heating pad on my stomach almost constantly and they don't make a case for that! The REN pendant is pricey, but I did not find 1 single bad review about it. They offer a 30 day return policy with no questions asked but said that they have never had 1 returned back to them because of it not working. Those are some pretty amazing stats if I do say so myself! I took the plunge and got the silver pendant which I began using about a month ago. I can 100% say that it has changed my sleep completely. My insomnia has completely disappeared, which is nothing short of a miracle. I should note however that insomnia and painsomnia are 2 different beasts. Painsomnia is staying awake due to pain keeping me up, but the insomnia that I had was good old fashioned tossing and turning until 7am for no good reason. Since I put this pendant in my room my sleep has been noticeably deeper and as soon as my body pain allows me to sleep I sleep instantly. I noticed some other things improved too as far as neurological night time issues & anxiety. Overall it is 100% worth the investment and truthfully the best option I found for keeping yourself protected from EMF's constantly.
This was a bit long, but hopefully informative in some way shape or form. If you haven't already I recommend looking into seeing how EMF's might be hindering your recovery. It might sound kind of new agey and strange (I was a long time skeptic), but I can't deny the benefits I have felt.
