4 Things EMF Radiations Can Do to Harm Your Health
Electromagnetic Frequency, or EMF radiation is as much a part of nature as it is exploited by humans to build all kinds of devices. While your body may be adjusted via evolution to a certain level of many different kinds of EMF, it has been proven that modern devices can be very dangerous to your health. In fact, the more you expose yourself to electromagnetic devices and their associated “smog” the greater the chance that you will become very sick. To add insult to injury, if you have children that constantly use cell phones, tablets, gaming systems, and any devices that relies on cell phone or wireless technology, it can do untold harm to their mental and physical development. Have a look at the way EMF radiation is affecting your body even as you read this article.
Disrupt Sleep Cycle
Did you know that when you hold a cell phone to your ear, the radiation will pass right through your skull and up to 15 cm into your brain? While you may not realize it, many other forms of EMF smog also pass through your body even though you may not be aware of the damage it is causing. In this case, EMF radiation can disrupt your sleep cycle because it inhibits melatonin production. Since melatonin is responsible for ensuring you sleep, disrupting this hormone will make it impossible to hold a normal sleep cycle. This, in turn, can lead to an increase in headaches, increased risk for having accidents, lost work time, and relationship problems. Today, many people that are suffering from EMF related sleep disruption may believe they have stress disorders or other problems that actually got their start from lost sleep caused by EMF exposure. Since these people are often told that the connection between EMF and sleep problems is controversial at best, they go on being treated for a condition that won’t go away because the EMF problem isn’t being addressed.
Interfere With Brain Waves
Today, a growing number of researchers admit that the amount of EMF radiation people are exposed to on a routine basis is growing exponentially. While fewer researchers are willing to admit this is very dangerous, others are admitting that modern radiation levels are high enough to cause human brain waves to shift. Since most forms of EMF from man-made devices oscillate faster than the human brain frequencies, the EMF may be causing headaches, dizziness, inability to focus, anxiety, and panic attacks.
In order to understand how EMF interferes with brain waves, you must start off by recognizing the fact that the brain also emits EMF. Unlike the EMF made by electronic devices, your brain waves are much slower. In addition, just a slight change in speed corresponds to different brain states. For example, your brain waves oscillate at their highest frequency when you are awake (beta). They drop down a bit when you are relaxed and meditating (alpha), drop still lower when you approach sleep (theta), and drop even more when you sleep (delta). When EMF radiation reaches into your brain, it disrupts these natural rhythms and forces the neurons to try and rebalance. This, in turn, leads to an endless number of problems.
Interfere With Cellular Communications and Signaling
More people are finding out that the body isn’t just a batch of chemicals that respond in predictable ways. Rather, the fact that every cell in the body emits EMF for the purpose of communication and to carry out other functions is becoming more and more obvious. While modern science may not yet admit that auras and other signs of the body’s EMF signature exist and can be predicted, they do admit that cells communicate with each other using electron exchanges. In the end, it can be said that your cells communicate using EMF just as surely as your brain uses them to help with managing your state of consciousness.
Chances are, you already know that your body has millions of different kinds of cells, and that each cell has a specific function. Cells that are the same in form and function are organized into tissue. Many different kinds of tissue are combined to form organs. For example, your heart has muscle tissue, nerves, and other tissues that must all work together in a synchronized fashion to pump blood around the body. Your stomach, liver, brain, lungs, and other organs must also be synchronized within themselves and in relation to each other so that you can live and be healthy.
Over the last few years, researchers are increasingly finding out that cells, tissues, and organs don’t just rely on chemicals and hormones to communicate with each other. Rather, there are electrical or “EMF” signals that are generated on cellular membranes, even though the cell may not be a neuron. This, in turn, means that when you are exposed to EMF radiation for a long enough time, it will interfere with communication between the cells in your body. Consider a situation where you are at work, and your spouse calls to remind you pick up some bread on the way home. Now let’s say the call reached your voice mail, however there is a problem in the network, so you never even got the message. Since your spouse is expecting you to return with a loaf of bread, it will be quite an unhappy thing when you arrive home without any. As trivial as this example may seem, this is what happens when EMF radiation disrupts cellular communications within your body. In the case of your cells, however, it can lead to all kinds of illness including cancer.
Most people today don’t realize that the adrenal glands are two of the most important organs in the body because their activities have an impact on just about every other part of the body. In order to understand why, consider a situation where you hear a loud noise, become frightened, and dart under a table before an overhead shelf falls and hits you in the head. No matter whether you were conscious of a threat or not, some part of your brain perceived a threat, and you acted much faster than you would under normal conditions. The speed of this response came, in part, because your adrenal glands secreted a huge dose of adrenalin. This particular steroid opens up lung airways and, in general, prepares you to fight or flee to safety. Once the situation is over, you might feel shaky, cold, or have other responses that come with the aftermath of an adrenalin rush.
Interestingly enough, your adrenal glands excrete other steroids that are critical for regulating other body functions. For example, anyone that suffers from asthma or other breathing conditions that cause constriction in the airways will be given synthetic steroids that mimic the natural versions produced by the adrenal glands. It is very important to realize that when your adrenal glands do not produce enough of any given hormone, it can long term illness. If the situation gets bad enough, adrenal collapse can lead to death.
As with many other hormones, the brain governs the release of cortisol and other hormones released by the adrenal glands. In this case, EMF radiation interferes with the pituitary gland, which in turn, can no longer govern the proper release of cortisol. Once the adrenal glands slow down, it can be very difficult to spur them into producing the proper amount of hormone again. Here are just a few illnesses that EMF radiation may be causing through the loss of proper adrenal function:
- asthma – when combined with allergens in the environment, the stress caused by EMF on the brain and emotions may well serve as a hidden trigger for asthma episodes. As the disease progresses and requires more and more steroid use, it becomes easy enough to see how EMF can deliver a double whammy.
- Increased problems with stress – EMF radiation can cause the limbic system of your brain to believe you are under constant attack. This, in turn, means that your brain will continually signal the adrenal glands to emit more hormone than necessary. Eventually, constant strain from EMF will cause excess adrenal wear. No matter how careful you are with your diet and stress management, these methods may all fail simply because there is an excess and non-stop load on your adrenals.
Not so long ago, it was thought that small amounts of man-made EMF radiation could do none, or very little harm to a person. Since that time, however, individual exposure to EMF in various form has skyrocketed out of control. Aside from indirect injury at the cellular level, EMF also hits less well studied key organs that control others in such a way as to create cascades of damage that go all through the body. From interfering with brain function and sleep to adrenal stress and fatigue, EMF radiation may be far more responsible for mental, emotional, and physical health problems than you realized.
