Do you find yourself feeling run-down, tired, or headachy after a long day at the office? Do long shopping trips in warehouse-type settings leave you irritable and brain-scrambled? Do you get migraines from sitting at the computer for too long? Electromagnetic pollution may be the source of your symptoms.
Research has shown that excess exposure to electromagnetic fields may be potentially devastating to our health. Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) emitted by power lines, air wave communication, fluorescent lighting, computers, cell phones, and even common household appliances such as hair dryers may significantly affect our health. The electromagnetic fields generated by alternating currents (A.C. electricity) can interfere with our body’s own electrical currents (which is direct current, or D.C. electricity), which powers our nervous system.
While it is impractical to imagine a world with no electrical devices, there are ways to protect oneself from excess EMFs. Things that may help include not keeping televisions, computers, and other electrical devices and appliances in the bedroom. Be sure to unplug such devices when not in use. When you are around computers, T.V.s, or other high electrical output devices, we recommend you carry a multi-polar magnet. These magnets were designed to energize our body’s own electromagnetic field to protect us from damage from stray EMFs. These magnets are small – about the size and thickness of a credit card, and can easily be worn in a pocket. Place the cloth side closest to the body. With repeated use, many of our patients report improvement in overall energy levels, headache frequency and severity, musculoskeletal health, and immune function.
We also have EMF meters you can borrow to test the electromagnetic fields around your work and home. Once these fields are located and measured in your regular environment, we can help you create strategies to minimize or mitigate harm from exposure. For travelers or those who experience high or frequent EMF exposure, we recommend a device called the Mini HarmonizerTM, which neutralizes EMF radiation in a 100 square foot radius. Additionally, we carry EMF cancelling devices for use with cell phones.
