7 Habits To Protect Yourself From The Dangers of Cell Phone Radiation

How To Boost Your EMF Protection Now!

by Christiane Northrup, M.D.

Medical Insights & News Self-healing

Electromagnetic fields (often referred to as EMFs) are an essential part of the physical world. Electric and magnetic fields occur naturally within our bodies in association with nerve and muscle activity. We also experience the natural magnetic field of the earth and natural electric fields in the atmosphere.

While these natural EMFs are essential to your well-being and life, in general, EMFs from man-made sources—electric currents and voltages from the power system—contribute to pollution that is harmful to you. You are exposed to these harmful EMFs from a wide range of sources including your TV, Wi-Fi, small and large appliances, cell phone radiation, and even the electric meter on your house.

You can’t see EMFs, but if the radiation from EMFs were light, it would look like your world was brightly illuminated even at night—like Times Square times 10. And that light would come through your windows, your walls, your ceilings, and just about every crevice in your home. It would even shine through your bones. If you could hear EMFs, the sound would be similar to a loud tapping noise, as if someone were constantly knocking on your door or other hard surfaces.

Why You Should Be Concerned About 5G Radiation

EMFs, like cell phone radiation, impact our bodies at a cellular level. Science has shown a number of negative effects, including cell membrane damage, loss of calcium ions, and DNA damage. All of this damage on a cellular level has repercussions on your health. In fact, there is even a term for these symptoms—electrical sensitivity. More importantly, we are starting to see that long-term exposure to EMFs has been linked to significant diseases.

The 5G roll-out occurring across the United States and the entire world is largely untested. In the United States, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) share regulatory responsibility for the industry, yet neither has performed safety testing on 5G. Some experts have called 5G a “massive health experiment” that will have “disastrous results.”

According to studies, here are some of the potential serious risks associated with EMFs and 5G radiation:

  • Increased risk of neurogenerative disease. These include diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). One meta-analysis showed that occupational exposure to ELF-EMF was significantly associated with increased risk of ALS. Another study showed a connection between occupational exposure to above-average levels of EMFs and higher mortality rates from ALS.
  • Increased cancer risk. EMF exposure has been considered a possible carcinogen with links to leukemia in children, brain cancer, and other cancers. Since 2016, 400 new independent scientific studies on EMFs have shown the link between harmful EMF and 5G radiation and cancer.
  • Decreased fertility. Both in vivo and in vitro studies show that EMF exposure alters cellular homeostasis, endocrine function, reproductive function, and fetal development. As far back as 2008, a small study at Cleveland Clinic showed that using a cell phone decreases the semen quality in men by decreasing the sperm count, motility, viability, and normal morphology. A larger 2014 study at the University of Exeter showed that normal sperm movement fell by 8 percent when sperm were exposed to cell phone radiation. In fact, male fertility in the Western world has been falling at a rate of 2 percent per year. And a landmark study showed a 59 percent reduction in Western sperm counts from 1973 to 2011. Over time, this could lead to mass depopulation. Women are also at risk. Birth rates among American women have been falling for decades but took a sharp downward turn beginning around 2010, 3 years after the first iPhone was released. In 2016, the fertility rate in the United States had dropped to only 62 live births per every 1,000 women.
  • Increased rates of depression and suicide. Since the early 2000s, studies have shown that severe depression and suicide rates increased among people living within 150 meters of high-voltage power lines.
  • Increased blood glucose in diabetics. A 2008 study showed that EMFs contribute to elevated blood sugar in diabetics and prediabetics. The study concluded that up to 60 million diabetics worldwide may be affected. In addition, EMFs may account for higher plasma glucose levels and thus contribute to the misdiagnosis of diabetes.
  • Increased risk of heart disease. Radiation is a known risk factor for heart disease. It has also been noted by scientists that, at greater EMF strengths or shorter exposures, the body’s ability to develop compensation mechanisms is reduced, so there is the potential for heart-related effect increases.

Additional Risks Associated with EMFs and 5G

EMFs have the potential to exacerbate existing health problems in some people. Some of the conditions that EMFs are known to cause include:

  • Decreased mental performance
  • Insomnia and sleep disturbances
  • Headaches
  • Brain fog
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Tinnitus (ringing in ears)
  • Fatigue
  • Pain
  • Weakened immunity
  • Stress, irritability, feeling “wired”
  • Rashes or hives
  • Premature aging

My Solutions For Lowering Your EMF Pollution Exposure

There are many reasons why some people develop Electrical Sensitivity due to EMFs – from exposure to cell phone radiation to poor nutrition and everything in between. Even if you don’t suffer symptoms of Electrical Sensitivity, here are some ways you can mitigate EMF pollution to improve your health and vitality:

  1. Buy an EMF protection cell phone case.  Cell phones have become necessary for so many of us. They give us freedom while keeping us connected to work, home, family and the world. But, every time you hold your cell phone to your ear, you are absorbing over 50% of the cell phone radiation it transmits. I like Pong cases for cell phones and tablets. The company has a very informative website where you can learn more about cell phone EMFs.  There are many others, so do your own research and try the products that speak to your needs and lifestyle. Even with an EMF protector on your phone, I recommend texting and using a headset when you must speak on it. Better yet, use a landline when possible. These are all great ways to reduce your exposure to cell phone radiation.
  2. Avoid body contact with your cell phone and computer.  In addition to buying a phone or tablet case to reduce EMF exposure, try not to have bodily contact with your phone, tablet or laptop. Most cell phone manufacturers recommend keeping at least 10mm of space between you and your phone. Avoid putting your phone in your pocket or your sports bra! And don’t sleep with your cell phone next to your bed. If you must keep your phone next to you at night – for example, if you use the alarm feature on you phone – be sure to keep it at least 6 feet away. Definitely don’t put your laptop on your lap if you are trying to get pregnant.
  3. Get grounded.  You have probably heard the term “earthing.” If you haven’t, it is an easy way to create health in many ways, including detoxing from EMF exposure. You simply put your bare feet on the ground and allow them to soak up the Earth’s negatively-charged electrons. These electrons can help remove anything from heavy metals, to air pollution, to trans fats and can also reduce inflammation, which is the underlying cause of so many diseases today such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and autoimmune conditions. The Earth’s electrons act like a magnetic mop, cleaning up positively-charged, inflammation-causing electrons and creating balance in your personal electrical circuitry.  Practicing Earthing regularly if you live in a big city, can pose some challenges, but there are special conductive devices that you can use, even while you sleep. You can find these products by searching the term grounding products for humans.
  4. Use healing crystals. All crystals have energy, and many can give your own energy field a boost. If crystals and gemstones appeal to you, there are many that can help mitigate the effects of EMF exposure. For more information, click here. You can also ask to be protected by Divine Love.
  5. Create a low-EMF sanctuary. Most homes have wireless Internet. If you live in NYC, or any city for that matter, you probably have 20 or so individual wireless networks in range of your computer. To reduce EMF pollution in your home and your neighborhood, turn off your Wi-Fi whenever you are not using it. Simply put your wireless router on a power strip. When you get up from your computer for a while, and especially when you go to bed, just turn it off. When you want to get online in the morning, simply hit the power strip button.
  6. Remove smart meters. These don’t save you energy and are constantly emitting erratic, high intensity pulses. Some meters pulse up to 190,000 times per day. That is essentially all day every day! And these pulses can travel up to 2 miles. Research also shows that in many communities where there are wireless smart meters, residents complain of symptoms that did not exist prior to smart meters being installed. In fact, the residents often didn’t know that smart meters had been installed. Some of the symptoms include: headaches, insomnia, fatigue, hearing loss/tinnitus, heart palpitations, weakened immune function, irritability, and decreased cognitive function.
  7. Spend more time with people and in nature. Taking the basic steps listed above to reduce EMF exposure is a great start to becoming healthier and happier. You can take it one step further by carving out time daily to completely disconnect from modern technology. For example, try turning off your cell phones, computers, and TVs at a designated time each day, and spend time reconnecting with your family. You can also set aside time each day to be in nature, read a book, or practice yoga or meditation.

    Thank you so much for all this info…wow!! I recall an article from Dr. Mercola regarding EMF pollution and wireless technology., but forgot about it., then noticed last year I was having alot of insomnia issues. Shutting off the wireless totally (including the setting on any cellphones, which I still believe receive wireless signals, even when the phone is shut off if the wireless is “on” in the settings) has greatly helped me sleep like a baby.
    Regarding 5G, I could do with out it, and pray for the protection of people, housepets and wildlife being assaulted by this corrupted invisible technology.

    Thank you, for all you do to get the truth out and share true healing with all of us.. God bless you, lisa

    Nice to see such useful article regarding EMF and grounding from M.D. who understand this problems, thank you Dr. Cristiane Northrup, I’ll share it with all of my friends who still think that there is no need to take actions regarding cell phone radiation!
    I have EMF intolerance syndrome and I can recommend to use shielded clothing for people who have same troubles with being blasted by microwave radiation as I am, especially when travelling. I’ve got comfortable set of clothing from https://emfclothing.com
    I prefer Leblok garments because their materials are independently chemically and EMF tested and designed to be worn on the body.

      yes I find turning off wifi off helps, I get headaches from Wifi and switching to cable internet fixed this. I am also sensitive from EMF from phone towers after 30mins near a phone tower, I get a headache, ringing in ears, dry eyes, foggy thinking and neck pain sometimes knee pain too. I still searching for protection that works well if any one is sensitive like me and has found solutions will be great to share. I have found using grounding mats when I get home speeds up the recovery from the symptoms if I spend too long near a phone tower in the past it has knocked me out for 2 or 3 days before I can think straight again.

    I bought a mini oven rather than microwave one because of concerns about the radiation it emits each time being used. There are new models of fryer cookers which can cook foods in many modes from stewing to roasting which are much healthier and safer.

      I don’t agree with most of the points on this article and you can’t compare visible light to microwaves. Ultra low frequencies below 1ghz lower than visible light has been know to cause leukemia in children, blue light causes macular degeneration. please do your research.

      Karen, I agree with you. Most people do not understand science. Cell phones, microwaves, Smart Meters, etc. are on the spectrum of radiation called non-iodizing. X-rays and gamma rays are on the other end called iodizing. I like Dr. Northrup on some topics, but not feeding into the pseudoscience.

      1. Biljana

        It’s called non-ionizing. Speaking of science… How much research have you done to call this a pseudoscience? Starting with the terminology..

    3. Cheryl

      This is pseudoscience. People don’t understand Science. I’m an electrical engineer and have studied this. There are non-iodizing radiation like radios, walker talkies, microwaves, 5G, Smart Meters, etc. Then there are ionizing radiation like Xrays and gamma rays. One damages DNA. The other does not.

          1 year ago

          Ionizing radiation damages dna and weakens cell structures which is the reason the 5g network has been controversial. It’s even richer than 4G with ionizing radiation. Everyone is exposed to it because it’s in the air. Folk are getting sick faster than normal as a result. A beer gets you drunker. A bad tooth turns worse quicker. Immune systems are essentially weaker so…

    The crystals help you feel better and can lesson the symptoms of emf however your body is still absorbing the emf and every bit of harmful effect will still be realized. A lot of people are making a lot of money selling these crystals and give the buyer a false sense of zen. Research Dr. Klinghardts work as he is the forerunner on the subject in his clinical practice. He will explain to you the only way to reduce emf is move, lesson emfs by turning off router when not in use, fabrics and bed canopies containing silver, cell phones at least 12 feet from you and in airplane mode when not using.

    The flight crews of commercial airlines of the world need your help, Dr. Northrup. Many of us are ill and some are dead. Eye cancer, brain cancer, skin cancer, breast cancer. We are trapped in metal tubes flying through dense fields of Gamma radiation at 40,000 feet in a metal can that is traveling at 550-600 mph with a modem on the roof searching for a satellite signal 26,000 miles away in space. Every passenger has a cell phone ON and almost every passenger has an additional device ON! The EMF pollution, microwave and gamma radiation is DEADLY for frequent fliers and crew members! This is millions of times WORSE than smoking on planes and the companies are disregarding our health. The insurance companies are denying our claims and flight attendants are losing jobs and dying. PLEASE HELP US!!! I am a 34 year flight attendant for a major carrier and I do not know HOW to replace my income after that many years. I feel flying is committing suicide! HELP US PLEASE!

        I can’t go out as hypersensitive to the air , also struggling
        as it’s the same indoors
        It’s so hard that most people think its all in my head
        I found a really good book healing multiple chemical sensitivity
        A woman’s husband wrote this as she went through the protocol
        & this healed her
        a Dr Martin Pall suggested her to follow , I’m have started to
        Implement this

      It is true that airplane travellers, especially at higher altitudes are subjected to increased doses of radiation from the sun (mostly).
      The EMF coming from the plane’s modem and peoples phones are most likely minimal compared to what is being transmitted through the roof of the airplane. It is no secret that every flight is comparable to almost 6 chest x-rays, that’s without “man-made” radiation.
      The ones who control, are never the ones affected…that’s why they are the executives, and we are just the “consumers and employees” who are thought of as dumb and ignorant by those same executives. If you really want to protect yourself and your family, become an executive in almost any organisation.

    Someone should explore the very real signs that wifi and mobile devices have negative effects on people.
    I work in an environment where mobile devices are the norm. On the go and in meetings my salespeople and peers will carry and use 1-3 devices on average.
    I am noticing very clear signs of the negative physical effects these devices are having.
    These symptoms include:
    Constant dry mouth
    Chronic dry lips / chapped lips
    Chronic cotton mouth
    Blood shot eyes
    Insatiable thirst

    These signs are especially noticeable after a closed door meeting where several participants were behind a wifi enabled laptop and cell phone at side.
    I was one of the first in my group of friends and family to adopt wireless everything in my home. Apple TV vs cable , cell phones vs landline, tp link wifi extenders, wifi laptop vs desktop hard wired. I have experienced the symptoms listed above since making the switch. Several Drs advised is was due to allergies. I believe it is linked to wifi as I get relief when I disconnect completely. I also observe the symptoms listed in others who are heavy wifi/mobile users.
    Lastly, I spend time upstate ny in the Adirondacks. I have noticed these same physical symptoms with family members that have recently been exposed to this new norm. Cell phone towers and wifi in commercial establishments are both new to the community I am referencing. I have recently observed the symptoms listed above with residents that never exhibited dry mouth / lips etc.
    I know that if someone starts this dialogue, many more will speak to the same symptoms.
    Please feel free to call me if interested in discussing further.

    Dear Dr. Northup,
    Thank you so much for the very informative article about EMFs & possible solutions, particularly earthing & crystals. Another solution rarely mentioned in articles about EMFs is the use of orgonite to remove harmful, dense EMFs from the environment & replace them with health-promoting negative ions. Negative ions are partially responsible for that good feeling when earthing, near salt lamps, or moving water.
    The science behind orgonite was developed by Dr. Wilhelm Reich in the 1930s. Copper spirals, crystal chips, metal shavings, & organic materials are embedded in a clear resin. The pressure of the resin on the crystals creates a piezoelectric effect that attracts the dense EMF energies. As that energy moves through the spiral & other embeds it separates into positive ions that are attracted back into the earth and negative ions that return to the surrounding environment. Orgonite is constantly self-cleansing, quite durable and does not require any special care.
    Orgonite comes in many sizes & shapes. Smaller pieces can be worn as jewelry, carried in purse or pocket, or placed next to cell phones, computers, microwaves & other ever increasing sources of EMFs. Larger pieces have been placed near smart meters, high tension wires, & antennas. It is an inexpensive device to add to other ways of dealing with EMFs.
    If curious what it looks like, you can see a variety of pieces at http://www.facebook.com/gaiagemsorgonite.
    Thank you again for all of your timely, helpful insights.

      As a 34 year career flight attendant who lived through cigarette smoke on planes I am telling you having wifi on planes is DEADLY! VERY VERY DEADLY! We are flying HIGH into GAMMA RADIATION! NASA has already labeled commercial flight crews as radiation employees. The Dept. of Labor has a list of the top 27 most unhealthy jobs and flight attendants are listed NUMBER TWO! Pilots number 12. The public needs to understand we are endangering our lives with wifi on aircraft and high altitude flying. We need the word spread and laws written to stop this! NOW!

Now, living in New England, although a bit challenging I try to get my feet on the groung as often as I can, because I can literally feel my whole body and mind changing from Earth’s powerful energy. This article confirms my own beliefs and now I know it’s also an outlet for EMF. Thank you THANK YOU!!

    This is just the tip of the iceberg – but so nice to see your article. I must say sadly after spending $100’s of dollars buying gear at Pong for myself and loved ones – I have learned it truly does not shield…If you have a meter you will see that you need to be many feet away from it to work, since then I have invested in Rfsafe.com, wave tech.us, and harapad…..it’s a learning curve but these products need to be tested especially when you are buying them to shield and then you might be more liberal with how you use them….
    The air tube earphones help too – but I am truly getting Rewired and trying to safe away from wireless as much as is practically possible…. thanks again

    For anyone interested in this field the first thing you need to do is get the book “The Body Electric” by the late Robert Becker (Not Bob Beck). Next Microwave News, which has nothing to do with Microwave Ovens, keeps up on the growing research papers that the cell phone industry and such keep trying to suppress: http://www.microwavenews.com

    An associate of mine Jack Ganssle tested “EMI-safe underwear” and posted his results this week:
    They failed to live up to their claims.

    Understand that it is my day job designing things like Smart Meters and Nest Thermostats. Jack and our compatriots in industry are designing all of those little computers that run the world today that no one thinks about. The one running your thermostat, the one running your microwave, the one in your TV and its clicker, the dozens in your car etc.

    So with that back background and a life time of Alternate Science endeavors I can say that most claims for EMF protect devices are utter crap to take your money. You want to see data that shows they work, know how the data was gathered and is documented so others can preform the same tests. Just as Jack shows at the link above.

    When places start throwing around words like Scalar, Tachyon, Piezeotechnogy find out if they actually know what the words mean. I most cases they do not.

    I won’t deny that “subtle energies” exists. These are simple things that we do not currently know how to build instruments to measure them. Our devices only measure the things that we *know how to measure*, doesn’t mean there is not lots of things we don’t know how to measure. A product with extraordinary claims needs to have extraordinary amounts of independent data to back up the claims.

    Understand that there are several different things at play in any electrical/radio signal: Magnetic energy (near field), Electric energy (far field) and their couplings. The power level of the signal and the temporal and spatial modulation of the carrier signal on a given frequency.

    Becker showed that *lower* levels of energy can have health effects that *higher* energy levels did not have with all other parameters remaining the same. Others have shown it is the modulation that has biological effects and not the frequency or the power levels. So it is difficult if not impossible to just say a given frequency or a given power level will or will not have biological effects.

    Prudent avoidance is always good advice. If you don’t need some widget transmitting, say your ZigBee based light switches for your ‘smart house power them down. If can can run a cable to your router and turn off the WiFi. Don’t use Bluetooh that works at the same frequency, 2.4 GHz, as does Microwave Ovens. Will I spend my days designing this crap I have very little of it in my home just to follow my own “Prudent avoidance” advice.

    What I see written about Smart Meters really makes me wonder where people get their information from.
    Actually design data can be found at http://www.analog.com http://www.atmel.com http://www.maximintegrated.com/ and http://www.ti.com .

    There was a Cell Phone tower put up in a community. Those near the tower started complaining of symptoms almost immediately. The people got the company into court to get the tower removed. After the Judge listened to the complaints of the plaintiffs he asked the defensive what they had to say. Their response was short and to the point. “We wonder what will happen when we actually turn it on?”. Case Dismissed. In those days it could take up to a year from a tower going up to it actually being live on the network.

    For those that are truly sensitive to EMFs there is a growing community in the Radio Exclusion Zones in Green Bank, West Virginia, by the radio telescope. Transmitters are no allowed in that region.

    Here is what the Worlds Health Orginzation (WHO) has to say on EMFs:

    If you truly want to go down a rabbit hole of biological effects read “The Mind Has No Firewall” by Timothy L. Thomas
    from Parameters, Spring 1998, pp. 84-92, US Army War Collage.

    If anyone needs a nice research station there is an A-Frame cabin in the Brandon area along the Allegany River in PA for sale. It is built touching one of the foot pads for a high-tension wire, 300kv+. The ‘For Sale’ sign went on the place before construction was even finished. Gee I wonder why… Does have a great view of river, the bike trail and Fishermen’s Cove…

    If you need a desktop Faraday Cage for testing:

      I think it’s what we call an extension lead, you know the block with 4 or 5 13 amp 3 pin sockets on, these can be found with blank sockets or with individual switches for each socket. Best to get one with a circuit breaker built in, just in case of power surges.

    Thanks for this article and ALL the great information you offer. In addition to the crystals for EMF protection that are mentioned in the article you linked, I wanted you to know that Shungite also protects against EMF. The book about it is titled “Shungite: Protection, Healing, and Detoxification” by Regina Martino; see http://www.powells.com/biblio/9781620552605. I use a decorative set of Shungite beads on my cell phone and have a piece of it next to my computer.
    Another note on Smart Meters – I live in San Francisco and PG&E has an opt-out program, I paid a surcharge but it was worth it. Thanks again – I am so grateful for all you do.

    My daughter and her husband had a cell site receptor put behind their home just this week. They are thinking of moving now! We are being bombarded with this stuff!

    1. Tobie

      We have had a cell tower 12 inches off of our property line for the last 10 years. I have been dealing with some health issues (started with vertigo and now is an ear/head issue on the right side) for the last 18 months that drs can’t figure out. Anyway, after doing a time line of the last several years trying to find connections I realized that my now 22 year old daughter started having stomach issues (gluten intolerance) after the tower went up. Don’t know if there is a connection but one of my natural drs is looking into the cell tower connection for me. I have had my amalgams removed and will have dental surgery next month to remove two root canaled teeth that don’t look good and to have two cavitations cleaned out by a biological dentist. Moving is probably the next thing to have to happen.

      1. Kathryn Wells
        6 years ago

        Hi Tobie,
        I’ve been hearing more about friends and colleagues having vertigo problems lately, myself included. I had gone to an audiologist and ENT and they both said “your hearing is fine, and you don’t have an ear wax problem.” That wasn’t much help because my head felt stuffy all the time, like I needed to pop my ears. Sometimes it even felt like an ear ache. So I took matters into my own hands, and now I’m cured. Hope you find a solution that works for you too! My best suggestion (what worked for me, at least), is to drink a lot more water, preferably alkaline water. I take B12, and Vitamin D3 daily, and I eat a lot more organic green foods. I started to think of greens and water like they were prescription medicine prescribed by my doctor. My morning green smoothie has become a ritual, and now I really think it’s delicious. Salads are decadent and filling because I learned to make gourmet salads. I eliminated caffeine and other diuretics. All of these behavioral adaptations have helped me tremendously so far. I’ve been a few months free without feeling vertigo or the feeling like my ears need to pop.

        That’s an interesting connection you made between your daughter’s digestion and cell phone towers going up. I’ve been gluten intolerant since high school (started in ’96), and I think it might have been triggered by stress topped off with a case of mono. But who knows? That was also the time that cell phone towers were going up all around me which might have added to the stress of being an athlete in high school. It took me a couple of years to isolate the cause of my digestive and neuropathic symptoms, but I have been gluten-free since 2003 and wow did it make a difference!! I wish your daughter well as she transitions to her new lifestyle. Tip: resist the urge to go out and buy cookies and bread just because they’re gluten-free. It’s sugar and we’re better off eating whole, unprocessed foods!

        Dr. Northrup’s suggestion of going outside and putting your feet on bare earth and grass is essential for our health as the human species creates more and more technology that adds unnatural EMFs in our environment. I make a point to go find a tree when I get stressed (and you can do this too when you feel vertigo). I put my hands on the tree, and I notice how cool it is, how calming and magical its leaves sounds when the wind rustles them, and I appreciate how pretty and beautiful the tree is. Having that moment and making that connnection is key to making this process help you. You might notice the scent of the tree after a few moments. That’s how you know that you did it right. That is the tree literally reaching out to you to heal you and to process and remove pollution from you (your breath is nourishing to the tree so you’re not hurting it!). Then I make sure to notice my feet and its connection to the earth. After a few moments, feeling a lot more clear-headed, calm and grateful, I thank the tree and wish it well and I go back to my day—much more prepared and ready to sit in front of a computer and work for the rest of the day. I hope this helped!

    Thanks for your feature on EMF. I currently use a personal FLOWW meter (manufactured in the Netherlands) but you can also get home and office, phone and computer ones. I prefer one that is on my person at all times to mitigate the effects when I am out and about with wifi etc. It has certainly been a life changer for me and I do try to educate my clients about this alarming trend in electro-smog and what it is doing to our health and longevity.

    I understand what a “smart meter” is, but am wondering if the computer-based gizmos like the “Nest” thermostat control also causes EMF problems? I assume they are wireless. We received one as a gift, but now I am not so sure we should install it. Anyone know about these?

    1. Kathryn Wells
      6 years ago

      Hi Jo,
      It sounds like you have some cool friends who are into the latest “smart home” trends! The convenience and futuristic appeal of new devices that can be controlled wirelessly via apps like the Nest are definitely gaining in popularity these days, but yes, they do transmit and receive electromagnetic radiation (light) in order to receive your commands. So yea, they do create additional electromagnetic field problems in the immediate area. The extent of which isn’t very large; probably the same amount as a wireless internet router in your home or local coffee shop. If you did want to install it still, you could still try to work it into a “EMF free” sanctuary schedule, turning it off when it’s convenient to do so.

      Another tip I would add to this article would be to reduce your use of your microwave. A microwave does the opposite that a crystal does. Whereas a programmed crystal can influence its surroundings with harmony and order, a microwave literally scrambles the molecules of your food, which is what causes the food to heat up. Imagine the molecules being shaken like maracas! The result of using a microwave, therefore is twofold: 1) when you are operating the microwave, you receive a steady burst of EMF pollution in your kitchen within a 10-15 foot radius while the microwave is in operation (that’s why we’ve always been told to stand away from the microwave when you’re using it), and 2) your food is vibrating chaotically at the molecular level, which negatively affects its nutritional value, and could possibly even be harmful to eat (due to free radical damage done to your meal’s fats, proteins, enzymes, vitamins and minerals).

      This radiation is invisible within the visible light spectrum, but it’s very real, and very visible to instruments and to seers. It’s not pretty!

      1. Christiane Northrup

        Thanks Kathryn, I almost NEVER use my microwave. And so I truly appreciate your post. It’s a good reminder!! And something that we can all control to some extent!! Nice work.

    I read with great interest your information about EMF. Both of my children died in their 50’s after developing diabetes, then severely painful and disabling neuropathy. My daughter was so sensitive to EMF that she suffered excrutiating pain constantly. Only when her husband would take her 40 miles up a mountain near their home did her pain subside. There were no transmitters or cell phones there. But since he couldn’t earn a living up there, and even if he tried everything available to help her at home, every bone in her right foot broke, and she was confined to a wheel chair until she died. The same thing happened to her brother. Both died on June 11, but in different years.

    I must admit that nerve problems exist in my family. My mother, sister, and niece all have had various types. Mother had a nervous breakdown while going through menopause, my sister had severe neuropathy, ending up in a wheel chair till she passed away. Her daughter has neuropathy, and lymphadema in her legs. She now has diabetes,. I have suffered extreme pain every day after contracting Shingles 12 years ago. I was left with continual and painful Post Herpetic Neuralgia ever since. I have Ischemic Optic Neuropathy that has impaired my vision considerably. And also have neuropathy in my legs and feet. I’ve tried everything possible to relieve the pain, numbness, extreme skin sensitivity, and swelling. I also have glaucoma that elminates most medications. Along with severe osteoarthritis, it’s so difficult for me to navigate on my feet, even with aids. Or to even do ordinary necessary daily tasks. I take a pain pill daily, baby aspirin when necessary, and Vitamin B12 and B Complex every day. If I don’t wear my compression stockings every day, my legs swell, especially the left one (that I’d experienced numbness to while pregnant with both children).

    So, here I am with no family. My children’s father, after serving in WWII overseas, was stricken with Polio after we married, and died at the age of 31. I married again, but since he was one of two that survived a plane crash during WWII, he developed one health condition after another throughout our marriage. I am now 93, try to live as normal a life as possible, conduct and play piano for Sing-Alongs for the Village of Skokie where I live, and
    try to keep a smile on my face while my body is wracked with pain.

    Can you suggest anything else to enable me to be capable of facing these last years of my life?

Robert Fritchie’s work with Divine Love as a healing modality is unparalleled. I just spoke with Bob recently– and he reported on two cases that were recently reversed with the Divine love healing process: Stage 4 pancreatic cancer and stage 4 lung cancer. BEautifully documented. You have absolutely nothing to lose! And congratulations on living as long as you have despite all the challenges. That music is also helping you which I’m certain you know!!

    The electric company just came around last week and installed smart meters. She didn’t ask if I wanted it and I didn’t think I had a choice. Maybe it’s not a smart meter but it’s a digital meter where a meter reader doesn’t have to come to the house.

    I wanted to bring another EMF protection product to your attention. You can find them at http://www.vibesup.com. Kaitlyn Keyts has invented a material that generates negative ions using piezioelectrical energy. She has had the products tested and shows that they do work. She has mats, soles for your shoes, flip flops and just last week introduced bras. She also has jewelry so your emf protection can be stylish. I was introduced to her products about three years ago and have been using them ever since.

    What are smart meters?

    1. Trd
      6 years ago

      It’s a meter that measures your utilities, typically your electricity or water useage. Previously a person, a meter reader, would walk to your meter and record the useage. A smart meter is constantly broadcasting a signal, once a month the utility will record the amount without needing a person to go house to house.
