For many of us, despite our best efforts to maintain health with adequate exercise, nutrition and rest our energy levels remain below par. Many of us have changed our diet to reduce sugar, alcohol, dairy even wheat, upped our water consumption and exercise yet overall still feel less than 100%. We put it down to busy lives and the world we live in, and maybe our environment is making us sick. Another element in the health formula, that to date has received less press, could be our exposure to increasing levels of electromagnetic frequency radiation or EMF.
The last 15-20 years has seen a dramatic increase in the manufacture and use of electronic devices which in turn has upped the levels of manmade electromagnetic radiation. More and more electronic gadgets are entering our lives, bigger screen TVs, mobiles, tablets, laptops, and we are becoming more and more reliant, even addicted to the services they provide. Industry and government respond by building more powerful phone towers, farther reaching broadband facilities and installing wi-fi everywhere so we can be ‘connected’. And all the while we are being irradiated by levels of energy waves our bodies are simply not prepared for.
Radiation exposure can drain our energy, by interrupting our body’s natural methods of recovery, and affect our overall sense of wellbeing. Research says some of us are sensitive and overexposure brings about symptoms of ill health, while some of us become radiation sensitive due to existing ill health. Either way, the radiation is potentially reducing our natural protection mechanisms, putting our immune system under increasing pressure. Some of the health effects reported in relation to electromagnetic radiation (EMF) exposure include dizziness and headache, anxiety and depression, insomnia, allergies, hyperactivity, blood sugar fluctuations, behavioural issues, concentration problems and memory loss.
Issued in 2007 and updated in 2012, the BioInitiative Report was prepared by 29 authors from ten different countries around the world, each with a string of letters behind their names like MDs, PhDs even MsC, MA and MPHs. This report states, “There is a growing health issue of chronic exposure to electromagnetic fields and radiofrequency radiation in the daily life of billions of people around the world.”
“This is because they [the electromagnetic fields] interfere with normal body processes (disrupt homeostasis), prevent the body from healing damaged DNA, produce immune system imbalances, metabolic disruption and lower resilience to disease across multiple pathways. Essential body processes can eventually be disabled by incessant external stresses (from system-wide electrophysiological interference) and lead to pervasive impairment of metabolic and reproductive functions.”
So how can we utilise and even enjoy the benefits of our technological world without feeling the debilitating effects? We discussed ways to reduce exposure in a previous blog ‘A guide to personal EMF radiation protection’ however there are a growing number of radiation emitting services we cannot control such as wi-fi enabled schools, libraries, community and shopping centres, cafes, more powerful even the smart metres being installed in our homes.
A further solution is to actually convert the potentially harmful radiation frequencies into body friendly radiation frequencies using Floww personal radiation protection. The Floww health technology products are designed to eliminate the adverse symptoms of radiation and to support and enhance the natural energy of the body. Those who have experienced the effect of the Floww products say that the ‘Floww Field’ they create helps to promote and maintain a sense of well-being and vitality in the body easing many symptoms of their ill health. A range of Floww products are now available from NS Health.
