These days most everyone is attached to some electronic device almost 24/7, even when they are sleeping. Yes, it is convenient in some ways but it is negatively affecting our health. This has to do with the EMF’s that are emitted from these pieces of technology and the way they interact with our being (tissues, organs, cells, DNA, etc). It’s almost impossible to walk into a room without being directly exposed to EMF’s. Some examples of items that emit electromagnetic fields are computers, refrigerators, cell phones, televisions, microwaves, etc. The list goes on and on. There are many studies that link cell phone radiation exposure to DNA damage. This is significant because one way that cancer and various diseases are believed to develop is when the DNA in a cell are damaged.
We are so distracted by technology and it’s so out of balance with nature and our brains. Nature has one rule and it wants symmetry. With the Age of Technology we have gotten out of symmetry with nature. We are overstimulated by electronics and thus the body is compromised, not in a good way.
Increasing evidence shows that EMF exposure can damage the Thyroid. The point of this writing is the Thyroid, but all our organs are effected. A 2004 human study found changes with thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) in those who were exposed to over 33 hours per month of cell phone use. A 2005 animal study showed that exposure to EMF 30 minutes per day, five days per week, for four weeks showed suppressed TSH and T4 and T3 levels. Another 2005 animal study showed that extremely low frequency EMF exposure shortly after birth for 7 hours per day, five days per weeks for three months caused significant inflammatory changes to mast cells within the thyroid gland. Mast cells release histamine and are related to many health concerns including autoimmune disorders. Researchers have found a significant correlation between total radiation exposure and an increase in TSH levels regardless of family or personal history of thyroid dysfunction.
Because children and adolescents will experience more exposure throughout their lives, they are at a higher risk. But don’t worry, there are ways to reduce how much we are exposed. You can first start by not keeping your cell phone with you at all times and by turning it on airplane mode when you aren’t using it or leaving it in the other room. Choose to text instead of calling, use speakerphone when possible, unplug appliances at night, avoid having your bed on the same side of the wall as the television in the next room, and keep devices at least 8 feet away from your head when sleeping.
It has been proven that increased exposure to EMF has a direct and significant relation to increased stress, depression, and anxiety. At the Life Center we use a technology called the Harmonic Egg. The Harmonic Egg uses sound, light, vibration, and frequency for healing. The sacred geometric resonant chamber allows the person to reach the delta-theta brain waves to come into a state of deep relaxation, and assist the body’s natural healing abilities. The Harmonic Egg is helping alleviate stress and bring balance back to the clients. Once balance can be restored we believe the body can heal itself. That’s the simple explanation.
