The amount of electricity in the environment can be overwhelming to think about. The environment is saturated with invisible EMFs from electrical wiring, appliances, Wi-Fi., computers, appliances, cell phones, hydro and cell phone towers, etc..In a 2008 survey by U.S.A. today, EMF pollution was found to be the #1 environmental concern. This is a valid concern; EMFs affect every aspect of physical, emotional and mental health and contribute to every disease and disorder. This paper will explain how and why electricity in the environment is adversely effecting health, emotions and mental functioning and what this means when it comes to childrens’ health, behaviour, emotional development and ability to learn. This paper will also suggest ways in which to be become easily empowered for protection and healing. that you can confidently use to protect yourself and family.
Many different terms are used when talking about the electricity that’s in our environment. Such as, electromagnetic field, electromagnetic radiation, magnetic field, electric field, microwave, EMR, ELF and so on. It is not important to define these terms or distinguish between the different types of electricity. The important thing is that all chaotic non biological electricity is a threat to physical, emotional and mental health. The term “chaotic” is used intentionally, because some forms of manmade electricity are used for therapeutic purposes. The term, EMF, will be used here to refer to non biological chaotic electricity;
Manmade or artificial electricity has been used on the planet for 120 years. Apparently, with the introduction of wireless technology, artificial electricity can now be measured everywhere on Earth. This is the first generation to be saturated with EMFS. The proliferation of electricity seems to be endless. Merchandisers have started to put microchips in clothing, footwear and other goods and are doing so without our knowledge. These microchips are designed to send encoded electrical messages to data collection agencies that will track consumer habits. Researchers have already micro chipped humans and there is talk of doing so nationwide. In British schools, teachers can already give lessons using Wi-Fi white-boards, and in the near future hand-held Wi-Fi terminals will enable children to 'interact' with digital lesson. In the words of the technology's industry group, the Wi-Fi Alliance: 'Simply put, Wi-Fi is freedom.'
EMFs cannot be avoided, however, one can effectively safeguard their health and heal. The following explains how this can be done effectively, conveniently and affordably.
Some may be question whether or not EMF dangers are real. After all, there are researchers and authorities who insist that EMFs are harmless. So, many people believe that the subject of EMF health hazards is controversial and needs more research. The truth is, thousands of scientific research papers are published every year that document the health risks associated with EMFS. These studies have shown that all EMFs, regardless of range or frequency have damaging consequences. Since the 1970’s studies have repeatedly shown a direct correspondence between how close one lives to powerlines and transformer and power stations and the incidence of childhood leukemia and cancer. The largest study involved 29,000 children and looked at data collected over a 30 year period. Incidentally, A 2003 study by Canadian scientist Magda Havas found that 42 of the 60 Canadian cities that were measured, had EMF field intensities at levels greater than the level associated with childhood leukemia.
Recently, there have been numerous studies to suggest a direct relationship between brain cancer and cell phone use. Brain cancer tumor risk has been steadily increasing over the last 10 years- particularly among the 20 -29 year olds. This begs the question, why then, are educated researchers claiming EMFs are harmless? The reason is simple. These researchers are looking for a direct cause and effect relationship when none exists. Studies have shown that there appears to be no rhyme or reason to the symptoms. Researchers can take a group of people claiming to be electrically sensitive, expose them to identical frequencies and have reports of many different kinds of symptoms. One person who claims to be sensitive to EMFS will have an adverse reaction to one type of EMF but not to anther, while a 2nd electrically sensitive person will express no reactions at all So, the researchers who are looking for direct cause and effect relationships conclude that symptoms in response to EMF exposure are psychosomatic-an artefact created by the power of suggestion.
A large body of research comes from Sweden where they have officially recognized electromagnetic hypersensitivity or electro sensitivity as a medical condition. This is a condition where someone experiences physical or psychological symptoms that are aggravated by EMFs at levels that most people can tolerate. Most common symptoms include: headaches; tinnitus; fatigue; nausea; stress; poor concentration; sleep disorder; pain; burning sensation; skin conditions; and rashes.
Dr. Ollie Johanssen, a Swedish neuroscientist has declared that based on his research, he expects that 50% of the world population will exhibit symptoms of electro hyper sensitivity by the year 2017. This might seem to be an extremely bold claim. Keep in mind, however, that the effects of EMFs are cumulative, making us increasingly more sensitive to EMFS as we get older.
In addition to the symptoms of electro sensitivity, EMF exposure is also linked to many other physical complaints, emotional disorders, and mental conditions.
The question that next arises is, why are EMFs implicated in so much illness and disorder? Very simply, it is because we are electrical beings with internal wiring. Every bodily function depends on electrical activity that takes place within and between cells. The body’s electrical system works to initiate every action within the body. It balances the activity of every organ. Every bodily function depends on electrical activity. The body’s electrical system works to balance the activity of the organs. It represents the very foundation of the healing process. The flow of electricity in the body is as critical to the body’s well being as the flow of blood.
The body conducts electricity that enters it. Studies have shown that when this happens, the body’s electrical processes are disturbed, and cell functioning is disrupted. The electricity in electrical wiring and appliances changes the atomic structure of the cell and breaks the bonds that exist in and between cells. This triggers changes in blood chemistry, induces free radicals, disrupts the cells ability to control PH levels, enzyme activity, cell reproduction, synthesis, functioning and energy transfer. A healthy and permeable cell membrane wall is needed for effective communication and coordination of activity between cells, tissues, organs and nerves. When exposed, to EMFS, the protein in the cell membrane wall is weakened and the cells react as though threatened by an invader and elicits a state of emergency (fight or flight response) in the body. In this state of emergency, non-vital processes are delayed, and blood pressure, heart rate and blood sugar levels increase. The cell enters into a state of emergency. Besides impaired communication and coordination, the reduced membrane permeability also makes it difficult for nutrients to enter and for toxins to exit. As a consequence, the body does not benefit from nutrients and healing therapies as it should, When the cell is in a state of emergency, instead of producing water and carbon dioxide, the cell produces hydrogen peroxide and carbon monoxide. In short, the cell begins to ferment. The state of emergency behaviour is passed on to each subsequent generation of cells.
There is also constant unending tension in the nervous system, that puts the body into a state of chronic stress. Most scientists agree that the mechanism whereby EMFs impact the body's nervous system is explained by the principle of cyclotronic resonance. (The word cyclotronic refers to spinning electrons. According to the principles of Cyclotronic resonance, energy is actually transferred from the electrical wiring in buildings into the nervous system of people within the building.) Cyclotronic resonance causes the adrenal system to generate cortisol, stress hormones, and also causes ions, also known as electrolytes, (electrical particles) to get kicked out of the cells. Specifically calcium, lithium, sodium, magnesium and potassium are kicked into the blood stream to either collect in joints or be inappropriately eliminated. These ions, or electrolytes govern cell metabolism, calmness, mood and memory and are involved in most of the body’s chemical reactions. Eventually, the immune systems begin to collapse.
Additionally, studies have found that EMF exposure more than doubles the release of mercury vapour from dental fillings, triggers the expression of disease causing genes, damages DNA and interferes with DNA repair. Studies have also shown that cancer cell division is 24 times greater when the cancer cells are exposed to EMFs.
It seems that the pineal gland is the organ most impaired by EMF exposure. This organ produces hormones and neurotransmitter that tune and regulate the hypothalamus, central nervous system and immune system. EMF exposure suppresses the pineal gland activity leading to the reduction of 2 important chemical messengers: melatonin and serotonin. Both are involved in regulating numerous processes and functions, however, serotonin has enormous influence over many brain functions.
sleep onset and quality of sleep; body weight; energy balance; antioxidant activity; sex hormone production; mood; immunity; bone health; and prostrate, breast and uterine health.
Melatonin Deficiency is Associated with:
insomnia; sleep disorders; endometriosis; fibroids; fibrocystic breasts; menstrual disturbances; prostrate cancer; PMS; immune disturbances; cancer; high cholesterol; blood pressure abnormalities; depression; bipolar disorder; Alzheimer’s; autism; epilepsy; sudden infant death; diabetes; anxiety; heart arrhythmia; cataracts; and scoliosis.
appetite control; sleep; memory; learning; mood; behaviour; cardiovascular functioning; muscle contraction; sense of well being; endocrine, renal, immune and gastrointestinal systems.
Serotonin Deficiency is Associated With:
insomnia; memory and learning disorders; mood disorders; eating disorders; depression; obesity; panic attacks; alcoholism; headaches; ADD; aggression; fibromyalgia; PMS; deficits schizophrenia and deficits in executive, fibromyalgia, schizophrenia, memory and learning disorders, and impairments in functions that are collectively known as executive functions.
Executive function is a collection of brain processes that are responsible for planning, cognitive flexibility, abstract thinking, learning rules, initiating appropriate action, inhibiting inappropriate action, and selecting relevant sensory information. It is involved in decision making, trouble shooting, impulse control, reasoning, managing time and space, organizing and co-ordinating activities, setting goals, self reflection, self correcting; multi-tasking and mood. Executive functions develop during childhood through to young adulthood. This is when the child and adolescent learn to:
resist distraction by salient stimuli; focus attention on stimuli that are important; be goal oriented; organize and direct activity so that goals are achieved in ways that are appropriate and rule abiding; engage in abstract thinking; make predictions about the future; reason; think from another’s point of view; evaluate ideas; reflect on ones own work, be flexible in thinking so that self correcting is possible; keep track of time; simultaneously attend to more than one task; engage in group dynamics; wait patiently; finish work on time; and seek assistance when needed.
As mentioned previously, executive functions become impaired when the pineal gland produces less serotonin in response to EMF exposure. Executive functions are also impaired when EMF exposure disrupts the electrical activity within and between brain cells – which are specifically specialized nerve calls called neurons. Executive functioning is also impaired by the constant unending stress caused by EMFS, which in turn puts the body into a fight or flight response. The reason being, that part of this response is to reduce the blood flow to the Frontal lobes/ forebrain, where executive functioning takes place; this means there is less energy available for executive functions. The loss of important electrolytes through the process of cyclautronic resonance also impairs executive functioning. So, there are many ways in which EMF exposure interferes with thought processes, learning, memory, emotional control and behaviour. And the disruption in executive functioning has wide reaching implications during childhood.
There is seldom a single cause for disorders and illness. So, of course, EMFS are not necessarily the cause for these. However, EMFs can be seen to disturb emotional and mental functioning, promote and accelerate illness and interfere will healing, Minimizing exposure to EMFS and obtaining effective EMF protection are essential for healing and prevention.
Based on the research, when exposure to EMFs is reduced, healing energies flow more freely and the body begins to heal. The nervous system and acupuncture meridian system are released from constriction. A calmness sets in. The pineal gland increases its production of hormones and important chemicals that control and effect physical, emotional and mental functioning. There is also an increase in overall energy. Cells no longer function as though in a state of emergency. As well there is increased production, uptake and cell retention of important electrolytes such as lithium, potassium, sodium and calcium. These electrolytes or ions are important for every bodily function. Because the body becomes more efficient, greater benefits are received from nutrition, supplements and healing therapies. In terms of emotional and mental changes, people report improved sense of well being, clarity, concentration, and improved anger management. The benefits that have been reported for children show that there is marked improvement in hyperactive ADHD and asthmatic children. There are reports of increased calmness, attention span and impulse control.
There are many EMF reducing practices. People who are sensitive to EMFs will find these practices especially beneficial.
These suggestions are for people who do not use EMF protection devices.
· Use a wired network instead of a Wi-Fi network
· Use wired speakers and other electronic components instead of wireless
· When considering an alarm system , opt for a wired system instead of a wireless system.
· When using the computer, try not to hold onto the mouse and learn keyboard strokes to replace mouse functions
· Try to locate the computer tower printer and wiring away from the body.
· Opt for LCD Flat Screen computer monitors
· Avoid placing a laptop computer on the actual lap
· Store the cell phone in a case or backpack or purse away from the body. When sleeping keep it at least 3 feet away from the bed
· Place the electric alarm clock at least 3 feet away from the bed
· Electric appliances and devices are surrounded by electric fields even when not turned on. So unplug these at night if they are in close proximity to the bed.
· Use the speakerphone on the cell phone or cordless phone when possible. Do not use a Bluetooth or earplugs that transmit radiation directly into the ear canal.
· Try to avoid using a cell phone or laptop in a car or bus where the EMFs are intensified
· Stay 2 to 3 feet away from someone who is talking on a cell phone.
· avoid using waterbeds that need electric heaters
· Substitute electric razors and can openers with manual versions
· Find alternatives for electric blankets
· Substitute a heating pad with a hot water bottle
· Washing machines, clothes dryers, and dishwashers have large EMFs, especially when high efficiency. So try to run full loads mostly. If someone is sleeping with the head of the bed on the wall behind these machines, do not operate the machine when they are sleeping
· The larger the tv screen the stronger and larger the EMF so, sit far back and again, do not operate if someone is sleeping directly behind the tv wall
When using appliances, try to stand 2 to 3 feet back. For instance, when cooking on an electric stove, try to use the back burners more often
Children have relatively more brain fluid and thinner skulls than adults, so they are more susceptible to EMFs than adults. A 1 year old child can absorb almost twice as much radiation per kilo as an adult. Try to teach EMF minimizing practices to your children while they are young so that it becomes part of their lifestyle. Do not use a cell phone or cordless phone while holding a child. Most baby monitors use digital wireless technology and the EMFs that they produce can be more powerful than living near a cell phone tower. So concerned mothers will want to consider using protection on these devices .
Lastly, support groups that want to keep cell phones and Wi-Fi networks out of schools, public buildings and public transportation. Let your local Member of Parliament know that you are opposed to the government’s decision to ban incandescent light bulbs.
Once you’ve made EMF protection a priority, select a product that provides the most extensive protection possible so that a single protector will protect from many forms of EMFs. If possible, it should also be portable. It should also be convenient to use and portable. And it should be affordable. EarthCalm products meet these criteria. They provide a revolutionary approach to EMF protection, which is a credit to the ingenuity and diligence of the inventor. Jean Gallick. For much of her life Jean suffered from symptoms that are now recognized as electrosensivity. Once she realized that EMFs were contributing to her illness, she applied her scientific training to finding a solution. The answer was to develop a way to empower the body to naturally rid itself of EMFs. And this, is exactly what EarthCalm products do. They empower your body so that your body naturally dissipates EMFS.
This is done by grounding the body to the electromagnetic field of the planet. All living things were naturally grounded in this way before there was manmade electricity. Manmade electricity has severed the connection. Instead of resonating to the planet, the cells are resonating to the electricity in homes/and workplace.
Many products are now available on the internet that address the importance of grounding the human body to the Earth. Grounding in this context has also been called ‘Earthing.’ Earthing or grounding is important for human health in two fundamental senses.
1. Grounding allows for the positive flow of energy and information between the human body and the Earth.
2. Increased grounding also allows the body to rid itself of the chaotic and unhealthy (biologically meaningless) currents induced by our electrical system.
To explain, the body’s electrical system is Direct current, or DC current. The planet’s electrical system is also DC current. When two DC currents are brought together, a grounding takes place. The grounding blocks out other forms of electricity.
To fully protect from EMFs it is necessary to strengthen your ground to the electromagnetic field of the Earth. This field lies between the Earth's crust and the ionosphere and is commonly called the Schumann Resonance. EarthCalm strengthens the body’s connection to the Schumann Resonance. EarthCalm products incorporate scalar resonance technology, to amplify the connection to Schumann Resonance exponentially. By the way, EarthCalm was the first to use this technology in a device. Scalar resonance takes the grounding deeper. Scalar resonance technology amplifies exponentially. So its use in the EarthCalm products results in an exponential amplification of healing and EMF protection The deeper the ground, the more exponential the healing and the more exponential the protection.
EarthCalm products contain 7 carefully constructed and calibrated circuits that are designed to act as antennae. The antenna is tuned to the frequency of the planet’s electromagnetic field. EarthCalm Resonator jewellery allows the grounding circuits to be worn on the body. EarthCalm home protection systems plug-in to the electrical outlet in the home. When the circuits in the home system make contact with the electrical wiring, the wiring in the home becomes a giant antenna bringing the planets frequency to every inhabitant including pets) in the home. The effect is intended to be evenly distributed throughout the home and its range not limited by the size of the structure. A single plug-in product is sufficient for an entire building.
The scalar home protection system incorporates a graduated three step process to minimize any detoxification symptoms that will naturally follow once the body’s healing energies are released. The three step process allows for a comfortable adjustment period that is especially important for people with fibromyalgia and electrosensitivity. The EarthCalm Scalar Home Protection System is the only product on the market that provides strong enough EMF protection to help people with fibromyalgia while still allowing for a gradual change or adaptation period. Our three step system is highly recommended for children, who may be too young to wear the resonator jewlery.
EarthCalm also offers accessory items to enhance protection from cell phones, or other wireless technology.
For those wanting to know, the circuits consist of
an oscillating coil based on George Lahkovsky (who was curing people of cancer in the 1920s) ;
an amplified crystal diode created by the inventor of EarthCalm products ;
several other coils or circuits and crystals developed by the inventor, such as the Diamond Element (see Eco Tec);
and the most incredibly effective and powerful is the scalar ground.
Only EarthCalm provides products that incorporate scalar resonance technology, are maintenance free, work without recharging, cost nothing to operate, naturally enhance the nervous and acupuncture systems, and last forever.
EarthCalm philosophy is simple. Provide the most powerful protection anywhere in keeping with natural laws.
EarthCalm products are offered with a 90 day money back guarantee to afford the time to monitor for oneself the effectiveness of the product. Maintain a journal of specific symptoms or general mood now, and then compare after several weeks to determine the effectiveness of the protection..
