EMF is electromagnetic frequencies that come from wireless devices, there are valid claims that high levels of exposure can cause some people to experience reduced energy, headaches, sleep disturbance, and fatigue. During lockdown alone UK adults purchased up to 21 million new digital devices, increased wireless connectivity could be having a knock-on effect on our health, a frequency harmonisation, and EMF protection expert has warned.
Lucy Blyth, from energydots.com, explains how to spot the signs of electro-stress and the ways in which you can reduce its effects.
"Low energy, trouble sleeping, lack of concentration, and headaches are all common health complaints that we often struggle to pinpoint to a specific cause. But if you’re feeling sluggish, especially as the onset of winter approaches, it could be time to time to consider if EMF is part of the problem.
“Electro-magnetic frequencies, or EMFs as they are also known, are the invisible waves of energy that are emitted by the wireless devices that we use in the home, workplace, schools, and world around us every single day.
“With technology significantly increasing its dominance on our day to day lives, people are increasingly questioning what impact this electro-stress or electromagnetic hypersensitivity could be having on our bodies and if they are feeling the side effects of this increased device usage.
“Whilst there are many ways that people display electromagnetic hypersensitivity, common signs of electro-stress include headaches, concentration disorders, trouble sleeping, mood swings, low energy, anxiety, and unaccountable aches and pains."
4 WAYS TO REDUCE EMF EXPOSURE
We can not escape EMF's, they will always be present in our homes and everywhere around us, but there are some ways that you can protect yourself from the potential side effects.
1. Switch Off When Not Using Devices: Taking a regular digital detox is one of the best ways to tackle EMF's. Switching off from your phone or laptop regularly during the day, or even attempting a few days without devices, like over the weekend could help to reduce the impact. At the very least, turn your phone to aeroplane mode when you go to bed and if you can, leave it in another room whilst you sleep. You should always turn off all devices that you are not using rather than leaving them in sleep or standby mode.
2. Increase Your Distance from the Device: If you’re using your phone a lot for work or social calls, try using it on speaker mode or connect headphones to remove that ‘hot ear’ feeling after a long call which is caused by radiation. Carry your phone in your bag, rather than your pocket. Although there is no definitive scientific link between phones and infertility, there are a number of studies that link the two, and it is not something to ignore.
3. Avoid Using Your Mobile in Low-Reception Areas: There are conditions where your device, must work harder and emit stronger emissions to function, an example of this is when you are in an area with low signal. If this is the case, try to postpone your phone call till you’ve got a good signal.
4. Use a frequency harmoniser. Independently tested to show a positive impact on EMF, a smartDOT frequency harmoniser that retunes the emissions from wireless devices like laptops and mobile phones at their source. The ‘dot’ includes a low-powered magnet programmed with a specific, coherent, naturally occurring recipe of frequencies. When attached to any wireless device, it ‘retunes’ or harmonises the emissions to a more natural coherent frequency. The body recognises the retuned emissions which reduces the effects of electro-stress. Benefits reported by customers using energydots include improved sleep, mood, concentration and overall energy levels along with reduced headaches, stress, anxiety and fatigue. smartDOTS cost from £25 www.energydots.com
Lucy adds: “It is clear that EMF is something that we are going to be debating (and researching) for years to come, however, while the debate rages on, having an understanding of the ways that it could affect your health and how to protect yourself is crucial. Unexplained health niggles which are impacting on your daily life can be easily addressed with a few small steps to manage the EMF in your life.
“With lockdown forcing us to spend more time working, socialising and entertaining at home, it’s no secret that our reliance on these devices is growing – and fast. In fact, research by Deloitte, carried out in May 2020, found that one in five UK adults (21%) – the equivalent of 10.3 million consumers - purchased at least one new digital device as a result of spending more time at home because of COVID-19. It also revealed that UK adults used 170.3 million devices daily during the first two months of lockdown alone, equating to 3.5 devices on average per person.”
With us all being at home more often now, it is important that you are aware of the effects that your devices can have on your health, and ensure you know how to reduce them. Make a conscious effort to reduce the time you spend on devices, and remember to always shut down your devices when you have finished using them.
