How Chaotic Frequencies From Our Cell Phone Impact Our Health, and What We Can Do to Protect Ourselves

Is wifi dangerous to health? With the arrival of 5G – Fifth generation Technology, I’ve been pondering on the question of impacts of wi-fi on our health, and have searched for reliable sources of information on this topic. I’ve been lucky to have found one recently, when I came across an interview with an expert in this field, Nick Pineault.

THE ADVENT OF 5G AND INCREASING AWARENESS OF THE EFFECTS OF MAN-MADE EMF

Nick is the author of the bestselling The Non-Tinfoil Guide to EMFs, and is becoming a leading voice on the topic of electromagnetic pollution – how it affects our health, and how we can protect ourselves against its harmful effects. Listening to him has only confirmed my already existing beliefs about the impact of man-made EMFs and I’m happy to share his insights here, together with my own ways to protect myself.

A CLOSER LOOK AT EMF

‘EMF‘ stands for ‘electromagnetic fields’ or ‘electromagnetic frequencies’, and it’s nothing new under the sun; there’s an entire spectrum of completely natural things that could be called an EMF – the actual sun in the first place, which emits many different types of frequencies, many of them visible as colours. Others are invisible, yet we know that they have an effect on the human body; some are beneficial, such as vitamin D, and some are harmful, such as UV radiation.

All visible life is, in fact, a latticework of electromagnetic frequencies. However, new forms of EMFs have been introduced in the last decades: Cell phones, cell towers, smart meters – anything that can be connected wirelessly to a Wi Fi router or to a cell antenna is emitting these new forms of EMFs, and their frequencies are much higher.

OUTDATED SAFETY GUIDELINES

The big problem with electromagnetic frequencies emitted by your phone, computer, or a nearby cell phone tower, is that their safety is guaranteed by guidelines put in place in the 1990s, when almost no one used a cell phone. They were supposed to be safe based on the science we had at the time. They are long outdated; they don’t match our current EMF exposure, which has been dramatically increasing every year, and therefore these guidelines are not protecting us against all these possible health effects.

With the introduction of 5G (Fifth generation technology), we’re rolling out an entire new technology with new frequencies, which have not been studied properly in terms of their impact on our health. It’s a common sense that no one in their right mind would take medication that is completely untested, in terms of its efficacy or safety; but this principle is not really applied to the man-made electromagnetic fields we are increasingly exposed to.

What’s especially concerning is that these new frequencies are millimeter waves, much higher in frequency. For instance, your Wi Fi router doesn’t go up more than about six gigahertz. But with 5G, it might go above 60 gigahertz.

Alarmingly, there hasn’t been a single study so far which would prove 5G’s safety. Conversely, there are many scientific studies describing an increase in a lot of different symptoms and illnesses in people living close to a cell phone tower (even with much lower frequencies than 5G). According to Nick Pineault, one of the major newspapers in Quebec, Canada, (Le Journal de Montreal) announced that they were planning an increase from 1,200 4G antennas to about 60,000 5G antennas.

OUR CELLS AND ELECTRICITY

Everything is energy, including our bodies: Our cells our working on electricity, bone growth is based on electricity, the skin acts as a battery to heal itself, your brain has an electrical charge…the list could go on.

In his book, Nick Pineault states that your brain could charge an iPhone 5 in 68 hours.

Our cells are equipped with various channels which have sensors in them. These sensors respond to electricity.

Normally, the sensors respond to electricity coming from some other parts our body. The electric signal prompts the channels to open or close. But when the foreign voltage starts interfering, (such as the artificial Wi-Fi signals) our cells gets confused. The cell channels stay open and allows calcium to flow in.

As a result of this, there is too much calcium inside the cells, which is not natural, and which creates stress and oxidative damage to the cells, as well as reduction of energy production.

We know that electromagnetic frequencies are part of nature and our bodies (and we can use them in a positive way to maintain our health!) but the artificially created electromagnetic frequencies (such as wi-fi signal emitted from mobile phone masts, Wi-Fi routers, mobile phones, and cordless phones) are recognised as electrosmog or electromagnetic pollution – i.e. toxins which create biological stress, and activate certain parts of our cells that should not be activated.

THE RISKS OF EMFs EXPOSURE

It is alarming that the majority of us is oblivious to the dangers of these frequencies. We are aware of the risks of too much sun exposure, and for years we’ve been protecting our eyes by wearing sunglasses with UV filters, or covering our skin with UV-blocking sunscreens, but we don’t do much to protect our health against the man-made EMFs.

Exposure to 5G frequencies is carcinogenic and affects every system in our body.

EMF have impact on (to name a few) circulation, red blood cells, nervous system, and immunity. It can increase tumour growth, sleep disturbance, fatigue, brain fog, depression and anxiety.

Amongst the risky devices are Wifi routers, cell phones (mobile phones), cordless phones, smart meters and even baby monitors (make sure they are not too close to your baby).

HEARING DAMAGE

It came come almost as a surprise to find out so many articles about hearing damage by electromagnetic waves:

REDUCING THE HARM OF EMFs

The awareness of the EMF exposure is rising, but so is our dependency on our wireless devices. As Nick Pineault points out, we’re in a very difficult and bizarre situation that affects the entire society, where everyone loves their phone, and yet no one wants to see cell phone towers erected near their homes.

Fortunately, you can still greatly reduce cumulative exposure to EMFs and eliminate the radiation by taking the following measures:

1) When not in use (especially at night), turn your devices off.

This especially concerns Wi-Fi routers. We don’t need them at night, so why should we allow them to disrupt our sleep?

 

2) Keep your cell phone away from your bed.

I never sleep with my mobile in the same room. It’s always fully switched off away from my bedroom. I have a separate alarm clock (yes, they still exist as separately from mobiles!)

However, if the idea of being separated from your phone at night keeps you awake due to separation anxiety, have it on the Airplane mode, and not too close to your head.

 

3) Replace wi-fi at home with Ethernet cables.

(You can get converters and dongles for any type of a computer, so it’s perfectly feasible.)

Plus Ethernet connection is faster and more stable, and, as a bonus, you eeliminate the radiation you would have with a Wi-Fi router.

 

4) Don’t keep laptops and iPad’s on your body.

(Especially: Don’t keep your device in your pocket or near your heart)

I’ve recently seen a London doctor, who had two mobiles in his chest pockets and another one in his front pocket. However awkward it was, I had to tell him to be careful. He smiled and thanked me. A week later I bumped into him again – and his devices were at exactly the same places as before. I can only wish that people, especially in his profession, will soon wake up.

 

5) Don’t keep your cell phone on your ear for too long.

Use a loudspeaker if you can. When using a loudspeaker, keep your personal devices at least one foot from your body. One foot distance will drop off radiation 80%, which is good news.

Here’s similar advice from Google:

hearing damage

We can’t always be alone when making a phonecall, so often it’s impossible to use a loudspeaker. We tend to solve this by using hands-free, (wearing headphones ) but that poses another hazard, where the EMF go straight into your brain.

Fortunately, there’s an easily solution to this – you can get the so called Airtube headphones / earbuds, such as Symphonized NRG 3.0 Earphones, Wood In-ear Noise-isolating Headphones, Earbuds with Mic & Volume Control

These are safe, because the signal from your cell phone doesn’t go into the wire and in your ear. Only air goes through them, so they are not conductive, and radiation doesn’t go into your brain unlike when using common headphones.

 

6) Get ‘The Non-Tinfoil Guide to EMFs’.

One of the most practical guides available anywhere, when it comes to electromagnetic radiation and what to do about it, is Nick’s book ‘The Non-Tinfoil Guide to EMFs’.

It’s available in paperback and Kindle format, and you can check a free sample of the book here.

Implement at least some of the steps above and you may soon notice a considerable improvement of your overall health and state of mind. Do your own research and help others by informing them about the risks of EMF as well as the ways to protect ourselves.

 

7) Work Daily on Strenghtening Your Immunity

Prevention is crucial. Protect yourself by strengthening your immunity and you will greatly diminish the negative effects of EMFs. You can read my other articles with tips on strengthening your immune system, or how to keep your health in balance with energy medicine.

Any questions or comments on this topic are always welcome.

Two Simple Techniques for Deep Relaxation

Two Simple Techniques for Deep Relaxation

We all know what stress can do to your body and mind, and how important it is to prevent it. Apart from yoga and meditation, one of the best ways to relax is to have a massage.

Having frequent massages or spa treats is, however, not always practical and within everyone’s budget. So learning a few techniques that friends and partners can mutually use at home can have amazing impact on your both your physical and emotional health.

I have learnt some amazing techniques for deep relaxation, pain relief and problems with insomnia in the Eden Energy Medicine Foundation course and I am thrilled to be able to share some of them in this article. By the end of this post, you’ll learn two simple yet very powerful techniques with multiple physical and emotional benefits.

Two Simple Yet Powerful Relaxation Techniques

I am going to share two such techniques, which not only can be learnt and applied easily and quickly, but which will profoundly benefit your physical and emotional health – with immediate, tangible effect. If you want to give your partner, child or a friend a big treat, then read on!

1) Spinal Flush

Contrary to what the name may suggest, this technique fortunately doesn’t require flushing your spine anywhere.

Instead, your partner or therapist with be firmly pressing paired points a few inches to the side from your spine, proceeding from top to bottom, starting at the level of your neck, then gradually going down, and ending around or under your waist level.

This procedure will benefit you in several ways:

– Energize you

– Strengthen your immune system – you can even nip an approaching cold in the bud

– Reduce built up stress and emotional tension (it can be a sanity-saver for any woman going through PMS!)

The reason this procedure is so invaluable in terms of improving your health is the following:

All along you spine, there are very important points called the neurolymphatic refex points.

These can be found at various locations on the front and back of the body, and each of them is related to a specific organ and meridian.

We can use these points to identify organs and meridians that are out of balance and need attention – e.g. due to clogged energy, toxins, energy overload, or not enough energy.

The points related to a meridian that is out of balance will be tender or sore – thus easy to identify.

To eliminate toxins, the lymph needs to move, and since (unlike the heart) it hasn’t got its own pump, it needs to be stimulated by body movement, massage and pressure.

When massaged (pressed/buzzed) deeply, the NL points send a signal to the lymph system, which consequently starts removing toxins from the related organs, and send energy to the associated meridians.

The physical and emotional effects of those released toxins and restored flow of energy can be felt immediately! My husband often offers me a spinal flash when he notices I’m getting tired, and I can never thank him enough for this treat.

You can also perform spinal flush standing up (Donna Eden and her husband David call it ‘Up against the wall!’, which is good when one is on the go, and needs a energy fix.) This can be even done outside your home (although it might look a bit like a ‘stop and search’ police procedure..!)

But to me, having the spinal flush lying down on a massage table is the real deal: The therapist stands above and behind the client’s head while performing the massage, so he/she can use the weight of their own body to lean down towards the client, and exert much more natural pressure than when standing up.

How to do a Spinal Flush:

– Have your friend (partner, client, enemy…) lie face down (or make them stand about half a step from a wall and support themselves with their hands)

– Using your thumbs or middle fingers, deeply massage the points about an inch on either side of their spine, from the base of their neck to the bottom of their sacrum.

Don’t worry about pressing quite hard, as this is very important for a proper release of toxins. You should be applying deep pressure in a circular motion, for at least three seconds on each point.

– When you have reached the sacrum, you can either repeat the massage (to the eternal gratitude of the person on the massage table), or complete it by distributing the person’s energies down their body, by sweeping down with your open hand – starting at their shoulders, and going across their back to their waist (or all the way to their feet) Repeat this cross-sweep several times.

This exercise is also described on page 93 of Donna Eden’s book Energy Medicine, and also in the Energy Medicine Kit.

You can watch the ever charming couple Donna and David demonstrating the Spinal Flush in this video (from 01:10 onwards), in which they reveal yet another benefit of this technique – a tried and tested cooler for arguing couples!

Spinal Flush Done with a Massager

If you want to give your partner’s hands some rest, you can also have your Spinal Flush done with a handheld massager. I use Hangsun handheld deep percussion massager, a device which I find highly effective and powerful. It’s great especially if your partner’s hands need a bit of a rest when treating you to a Spinal Flush.

2) Brazilian Toe Technique

The Brazilian Toe Technique is a simple, yet powerful relaxation-promoting and toxin-releasing technique, sometimes used in hospitals to help people with after effects of chemotherapy and radiation.

It is performed by gentle holding specific acupressure points on a client’s toes, and it has proven to be a helpful tool for insomnia, nausea, edema, restless leg syndrome, hormonal and emotional imbalances, stress, balancing body’s polarities, and various types of aches and pain.

The toes are held in the following order: 3,4,5,2,1.

When holding the client’s toes, the therapists keeps their fingers straight, like a peg, rather than crouching them, and holds each toe for 3 minutes. The touch should be light and gentle.

The Procedure:

– Hold your thumb under the pad of the client’s middle toe, while your middle finger gently rests on top of the toenail of the middle toe.

When transitioning to the next toe, always slide your thumb first to get into the next position, in order to maintain contact with the client’s foot.

– Move towards the fourth toe – first with your thumb sliding towards it from below, maintaining contact with the client’s foot, and then move your ring finger to rest on top of client’s fourth toenail.

– Move towards the little toe – first with your thumb sliding towards it from below, maintaining contact with the client’s foot, and then move your little finger to rest on top of client’s toenail of the little toe.

– Move towards the second toe – first with your thumb sliding towards it from below, maintaining contact with the client’s foot, and then move your index finger to rest on top of client’s toenail of the second toe.

– Move towards the big toe – first with your thumb sliding towards it from below, maintaining contact with the client’s foot, and then place your index finger AND your middle finger on top the client’s big toe. You will be holding important acupressure points – the first point of the Spleen meridian, and the first point of the Liver meridian. If you want to learn about all the points and their incredibly poetic names, have a look at this meridian chart.

Get Your Own Massage Table

Soon after starting my course, I realized what big difference it was to have these procedures done on a proper massage table (as in our class), compared with a sofa or bed. They always felt either too soft, or one’s head started hurting within the first ten seconds from having it on the side or buried in the pillow, half-suffocated.

So I decided to get an affordable massage table, ideally a lightweight portable massage table, in the hope that my husband would agree to take on the role of my personal massage therapist.

I looked for the best massage bed around £100 and having compared a number of reviews, I opted for a table with stainless steel legs. adjustable height and manageable weight, similar to this one:

I hope that you will try these techniques and enjoy all the benefits. It is definitely worth (and fun!) learning them, treating your friends and having yourself treated by them. There is no such feeling as lying on the tablke after a deep massage, with that lovely floating feeling. I hope you’ll get to experience these ‘missions to outer space’ soon!
