This past week I viewed a screening of a new documentary called “Full Signal”. The film dealt with the potential hazards of cell phones, cell phone towers and antennas. I was invited to the screening by my friend and patient, Camilla Rees, who is a driving force behind the dissemination of information related to all forms of electromagnetic pollution.
We live in an environment of electromagnetic signals. We are surrounded by cell phone towers, relay antennas, cordless phones, routers, computers with Wi-Fi, television and radio signals, etc.
This electronic milieu is not without risk to our collective health. Many symptoms patients are reporting (e.g., confusion, brain fog, headaches, dizziness, fatigue, sinus problems, visual problems, ringing in the ears, mood disorders, anxiety, depression, and cardiac, digestive and neurologic problems) have been attributed to the impact of this electromagnetic pollution.
I have noticed that a great many of my patients report suffering from a number of the above symptoms when they fill out my health questionnaire. As we detoxify our patients and get rid of the oral electromagnetic problems from the metals in their mouths, most of their symptoms dramatically improve.
In light of this finding, I view electromagnetic issues the same way I view other toxins. I have also had many patients complain of being electromagnetically sensitive. They have trouble being in certain areas of their homes, or in malls. Battery-operated watches won’t function properly on them, and some actually pick up radio signals!
Most people today are like out-of-balance scales. On the loaded side of the scale are the heavy metals, pesticides, chemicals, viruses, bacteria, molds, electromagnetic interferences, emotional stresses, etc.
If we can start to unload the scale, the body, which always wants to go back to homeostasis, will start to improve. I do much of this “unloading” using homeopathic remedies, which are, in effect, energetic signals. Everything at a cellular level is ultimately done via energetic signals (vibrational frequencies). This is the language of the cells. As with eliminating other toxins, reducing interfering electromagnetic signals may improve your health. (See past newsletter Some Musings on the Nature of Disease – Part 1 and Nature of Disease – Part 2)
There are several steps which can be taken to reduce your toxic exposure.
– Do not hold a cell phone to your head. Use an earpiece, preferably not a blue tooth type device, but rather one which has a tube from the phone to the earpiece.
– Limit cell phone usage in the car – the metal “cage” of the car amplifies the signal.
– Do not use a router in your house – use a hardwire connection.
– Do not use wireless phones in your home – use a hard line.
– Do not let your children use a cell phone. Exposing a developing brain to the electromagnetic signals may have consequences even beyond that to an adult.
I would recommend you read “Public Health SOS: The Shadow Side of the Wireless Revolution.” by Camilla Rees and Magda Havas. This can be purchased from the website ElectromagneticHealth.org This site has a lot of information on this topic that I think you will find interesting. At the bottom of the home page is “Neighborhood Antenna Search”. This site will tell you how many cell phone towers and antennae are within 4 miles of your home or business. I entered my address and was astounded to find 306 antennas and 30 towers within 4 miles of my home! All the more reason to control that which you can control – reduce your toxic load emotionally and physically, eat well, exercise, and use energetic based therapies as a first line of defense.
