Two key elements in our health and well-being

Our bodies function with the help of electrical impulses and when these are not working to an optimal degree, they will become dysfunctional and degenerate. For electricity to work it needs a positive flow, a negative flow and it needs to be grounded or earthed. When I think back to the days when we had to put a plug on all appliances and we had to make sure that the plug was earthed. It is no different for us. If we want things on any level to work well in our lives, we need a balance and we need to be earthed.

Health: earthingIn order to be grounded we need to put our attention on our base area and on our feet. The feet need to be flat on the grass/earth and without shoes. The rubber, plastic and man made materials in our shoes does block a great deal of the energy from passing through. At this time of year it is ideal to spend some time every day outside with bare feet flat on the grass and actively ground or clear any build up of energy.

If you or any member of your family is exposed to a great deal of technology or does not get out much or is suffering from mental health issues, I would recommend spending as much time in nature as possible. If this is not possible or not practical then the solution is to pump that resonance into your home environment as they had to do in space. Using Earthing Sleeping Sheet or Earthing Computer Mat drastically improves the star of welling and sleep in over 90% casses.

The bottom-line is simple, living in direct contact with the earth thus helps in grounding your body, induces favorable physiological and electrophysiological changes that promote optimum health and natural healthy lifestyle.

How to tell if you are suffering from Geopathic Stress

 

What is Geopathic Stress?

geopathic stress definition

Face this; when you are feeling stressed, you probably blame the outside circumstances or even other people’s behavior for your stress anxiety depression symptoms. But in most of the time you might overlook a significant factor. Yes, we are talking about the Geopathic Stress. For the uninitiated, Geopathic stress is typically caused by subterranean running water, underground plateaus or fault lines, which distort the natural vibrations of the earth. There is no secret that Electromagnetic Radiation affects our health, wellbeing and energy levels. These distortions cause harm to the living organisms.

How to tell if you are suffering from Geopathic Stress

  • Some plants love the ultimate effects of electromagnetic radiation and Geopathic Stress. These include ivy, mushrooms, mistletoe, bindweed, foxgloves, nettles, docks, and medicinal herbs. Fruit trees and many plants will suffer. Twisted or stunted growth and gaps in hedges may be clues.
  • Ants, bees, wasps, parasites, bacteria, viruses and compost heaps thrive.
  • Cats, owls, slugs and snails are attracted to Geopathic Stress. A cat’s favourite sleeping place (in the absence of an obvious place of warmth) is often on a Geopathic Stress line.
  • Lawns will often have bare patches, moss, silver weed and fungi, while vegetable gardens may have stunted growth.
  • Other clues include clutter, building deterioration (cracks in glass, brick and plasterwork). Electrical appliances may often breakdown. Food such as fruit and vegetables, cheese, jam and even photographic film will all spoil quickly when stored on a Geopathic Stress line.
  • Disputes with neighbours may be another problem which can be traced to a line of Geopathic Stress flowing from the aggressive neighbour to the victim. Geopathic Stress can make a house difficult to sell and haunting including poltergeist activity can often be associated with negative earth energies.

Needless to say, the sheer effects of electromagnetic radiation on human are bad so it’s time to be proactive. Use the above information as a base for some detective work. Look around your home and garden to see if you can find any tell tale signs. Think about the time you moved into your home, did you life, health or luck start to change?

We offer EMF/ Dirty Electricity and Geopathic Stress Survey for house or office needs!

Geopathic Stress and EMR Pollution and How it Effects your Health

The most important step towards a health living that none told you about?

If you have health concerns about overhead power lines, mobile phone masts or about the invisible EMFs of your electrical appliances, Geoptahic stress, dirty electricity and how safe is the place where you sleep,  then this may be for you….EMF & Geopathic Stress Survey 300x300

Are you suffering from geopathic stress and/or electromagnetic radiation (EMR pollution/ ‘electro smog’)?

This is an important question as they have been found to be contributing to many psychological conditions, headaches, dizziness, sleeplessness, fatigue, depression and even serious and long-term illnesses.

Our bodies operate according to very complex electrochemical processes. The environment in which we live these days is full of electromagnetic frequencies which can be harmful to our bodies. The effects of electromagnetic radiation and Geopathic stress lower the immune system and have been found to contribute to stress anxiety depression symptoms, serious and persistent illnesses and conditions such as cancer, ME/ fatigue, depression, difficulty conceiving, miscarriages,  insomnia, learning difficulties and psychological disorders.

 

Infertility rates are rising and many charities concerned with conception issues are now recommending that couples who have been trying for a baby should check their homes for both Geopathic,  electromagnetic stress and also for electromagnetic sensitivity symptoms.

 

DID YOU KNOW?: The UK’s Electromagnetic Radiation Research Trust recently launched a public education campaign urging men not to carry mobile phones in front pockets next to their testicles.

 What is geopathic stress?

geopathic-stress1

Geopathic stress (GS) occures where the Earth’s electromagnetic field becomes distorted. The Earth resonates with an electromagnetic frequency of approximately 7.83 Hz – Schumann resonances (SR), which falls within the range of (alpha) human brainwaves. Underground streams, sewers, water pipes, electricity, tunnels and underground railways, mineral formations and geological faults distort the natural resonance of the Earth thus creating geopathic stress.

What is EMR (ElectroMagnetic Radiation)?

Electromagnetic radiation (EMR) or sometimes called electrosmog or electrostress is generated by most electrical appliances, electrical cables, transformers, hair dryers, electrical shavers, microwaves, mobile masts, cordless telephones and mobile phones.

It is not easy to tell if the levels of electro smog around you are affecting you.  Your long-term health and well-being may be at risk. Electro smog given off by devices and appliances in your home or at your workplace could be harmful to your health.

 

What Are Electromagnetic Fields?

emf

Electromagnetic fields (or sometimes called electrosmog or electrostress) are areas of energy that surround electronic devices. The World Health Organization (WHO) explains that the electric fields are created by differences in voltage and magnetic fields are created when the electric current flows. According to WHO, the effects of electromagnetic radiation are huge! The electromagnetic fields affect us because our human bodies have their own electric and biochemical responses (e.g., nervous system, digestion, brain function, heart function). So exposure to EMFs can interact with your body in adverse.

 

Where Do Electromagnetic Fields Come From?

Simply put, EMFs come from electricity:

  • In your home – DECT cordless phones, hairdryers, vacuums, refrigerators, microwave ovens, irons, televisions (the flat panel TVs are much better than the old box-style TVs), main ring and lighting circuits, dimmer switches, electric blankets, electric razors, electric toothbrushes, WiFi, etc.
  • In your office – computers, fluorescent or halogen lighting, fax machines, photocopiers, scanners, cell phones and WiFi.
  • Outside – power lines (high voltage cables either overhead or buried in the ground), transformers (the gray cylinders raised up on poles that look like trash cans), electrical substations, cell phone towers, cities that provide citywide wireless Internet (WiFi) and electromagnetic radiation from near neighbors’ electronic equipment.
  • Airplanes – Several airlines, such as AirTran, are introducing Wi-Fi on planes, for all of their flights. Did you know that Wi-Fi on planes (and on the ground) emits electromagnetic fields (EMFs) that can negatively affect people, especially those with low immunity?

Most of our modern-day conveniences emit EMFs, some stronger than others. So does this mean you have to go off the grid?

Not at all! But if you are serious about achieving and maintaining your best health, there are several steps you can take to minimize the effect EMFs and reduce the electrosensitivity symptoms on you and your family.

Few Informal Precautionary Guidelines

For EMF Protection

  • Reduce your exposure to electromagnetic radiation by increasing your distance
  • Limit exposure to microwave ovens radiation and even better remove it from your house altogether
  • If it doesn’t need to be turned on, switch it off (cell phones & Wi-Fi router). I-phones can be used on airplane mode. Instead of Wifi use Lan cable connection or simply use Powerline Adaptors which allows you to transfer the internet in every room through your house’s electricity circuit.
  • Use an air tube headset when possible, avoid Bluetooth or wired headset
  • When dialling out do not put your cell phone next to your ear until your correspondent has picked up the communication
  • When dialling out do not put your cell phone next to your ear until your correspondent has picked up the communication
  • Make sure you use your phone only in conditions of optimum reception
  • Do not allow children to use a cell phone for calling
  • Cordless land lines have the potential to emit EMFs as strong as six volts per meter. Not only are you in danger of over-exposure to EMFs while you are actively talking on the phone, but cordless phones are also able to release EMFs into your home even when they are simply sitting in the cradle. Regardless if your cordless phone is charging or not, it can unleash dangerous EMFs into your home without even being in use.
  • Avoid using/working with  laptops and  electronic devices on your laps
  • Mobile phone masts. Go to www.sitefinder.ofcom.org.uk  and put your postcode in the box. Your street will come up with the location of all the near-by mobile phone masts marked as blue triangles

For Geopathic Stress Protection

  • Reposition Your Furniture. If your bed, your desk or your living room furniture (where you tend to spend a lot of time) happens to be in a geopathic stress area, you need to reposition it.

For Dirty Electricity Protection

  •  Change all CFLs to candescent or LED bulbs
  • Keep a good distance away from wiring and other sources of dirty electricity
  • Limit the use of “dirty electricity appliances”
  • Replace unsafe electrical devices with safer alternatives
  • Avoid electric under floor heating wherever possible
  •  Switch off/unplug any unused devices
  • Check your house’s wiring with an electrician if it has been over 10-15 years since the last time it was wired or checked especially the fuse board.

6 facts you must know about Creating a Healthy Home

 

Natural healthy lifestyle has immense effect on your health and home. Needless to say, making your home healthier doesn’t have to be expensive, or overwhelming and just a few changes can improve the health of your home, everyone in it — and the planet it sits on. 

Some of these are easy fixes. Others challenge us to re-examine a lifetime of habits.

Check your house for common health risk factors, electromagnetic sensitivity symptoms and choose safer alternatives.
healthy_home

 1.        Reduce your exposure to Electromagnetic Fields (EMF)

There is hardly any secret that reducing the electrosensitivity symptom is the most challenging part of Creating Healthy Home….

So, what’s EMF? Each and every day, your body is exposed to electromagnetic fields (EMF). Cell phones, satellites, radio stations, hair dryers, microwaves, music players, computers, power grids, gaming consoles, and body-worn electronics are all sources of EMF and, over time, we are exposed to a vast amount of these signals. To protect yourself from electro-smog, use EMF protection devices, which can help limit your body’s exposure to EMF and to reduce the electromagnetic sensitivity symptoms as well as its associated risks. As a result, you may feel more energised, focused, or even have a greater sense of well-being.

 2.      Decrease your home for electric pollution

Electrical pollution, otherwise known as dirty electricity is a term used to describe a type of electrical phenomenon occurring worldwide. Electrical pollution is not something you can see, smell, taste, or touch. It is not something you can sense, making it difficult for one to be aware of the presence of electrical pollution. With this in mind, it is important to understand what causes electrical pollution and what to look for in your everyday environment and home.

Many people complain about a variety of side effects to dirty power, these can include headaches, ringing in the ears, trouble focusing, and a variety of other symptoms.
Electrical pollution can be controlled with special filters.

 3.      Protect your home from Geopathic Stress and from the effects of electromagnetic radiation

What is Geopathic Stress? Geopathic stress – or harmful earth rays – is natural radiation that rises up through the earth and is distorted by weak electromagnetic fields created by underground streams, certain mineral concentrations and fault lines. The wavelengths of the disturbed natural radiation can seriously affect our health, causing cancer, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME), infertility and miscarriage. While we are asleep, our body should be resting so it can repair body cells, fight infections and absorb nutrients from food. However, if we sleep in an area affected by geopathic stress, our body has to use all its energy just to keep vital organs going. As a result, our immune system becomes weakened, which means that it doesn’t absorb nutrients or fight off infections effectively. We offer different equipment to help you to improve the areas in your house which are affected by geopathic stress or electro pollution. We also offer an independent assessment of your house/office.

 4.      Improve your Water Quality

If our municipal drinking water were pure, it would still contain chlorine and chlorine by-products. These chemicals have been associated with cardiac concerns as well as linked to increased risk for cancer of the bladder. But there is more than chlorine. There can be dissolved heavy metals in drinking water, from several potential sources, including older fixtures, plumbing pipes, and lead solder, as well as coming in from sources upstream of your home. There can be parasites and bacteria, even bacteria that live in rough areas of your own water pipes and which chlorine does not kill.

Good hydration is vitally important if we are to enjoy optimum health. We believe that drinking alkaline ionised water is beneficial for everyone.

 5.      Improve your indoor Air Quality

Most people spend as much as 90 percent of their time indoors.

But indoor air quality can be up to five times worse than outdoor air, which can have a very detrimental impact on your health.

Poor indoor air quality can cause or exacerbate:

  • Asthma, allergies, and other respiratory problems
  • Headaches
  • Eye and skin irritations
  • Sore throat, colds and flu
  • Memory loss, dizziness, fatigue and depression
  • Long-term effects from exposure to toxic airborne particles include heart disease, respiratory disease, reproductive disorders, sterility and even cancer.

Whether you want to eliminate impurities in the air (such as pollen, smoke and dust) or want to maintain optimum humidity levels in your home, there are various products to help you do this. Air purifiers can play an important role in improving the air quality in your home and office.

 6.      Use non-toxic cleaning products.

The conventional cleaning supplies under your sink — with their “warning” and “poison” labels — contain a potent mix of chemicals.

“If you’ve ever mopped with ammonia, you know how your lungs constrict,” says Lunder. “These chemicals have a very powerful effect on kids.

Look for “green” cleaners that don’t contain chlorine or ammonia. Choose ones that say “petroleum-free,” “biodegradable,” or “phosphate-free.”

Or make a cleaning products yourself.

Home-brew suggestions:

Use vinegar instead of bleach, baking soda to scrub your tiles, and hydrogen peroxide to remove stains.

Vinegar also removes grease and soap buildup.

Geopathic Stress & EMR (electromagnetic Radiation)

GEOPATHIC STRESS & EMR (ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION)
has been found to be the common factor in most serious and long-term illnesses and psychological conditions.

 geopathic-stress1

How do geopathic stress and electromagnetic radiation affect us?
We are now living in an environment where we are being bombarded with electromagnetic frequencies our bodies are not adapted to. Human bodies operate according to very complex electrochemical processes, which can be very easily disturbed by electromagnetic radiation and geopathic stress, which lower our immune system.

Geopathic stress and electro-smog have been found to be a common factor in many serious and long standing illnesses such as cancer, ME, sleep problems, cot deaths, fatigue, difficulty conceiving, learning difficulties and psychological conditions. For example, cancer as a disease of location has now become widely accepted amongst cancer specialists in Germany and other countries. “According to studies I have initiated, at least 92% of all cancer patients I have examined have remained for long periods of time, especially in respect of their sleeping place, in geopathically stressed zones.” Dr Hans Nieper, Cancer Specialist

The Dangers of Electromagnetic fields (EMF) and EU Legislation

Why can the radiation from mobile phones and computer VDU monitors be harmful?

Electromagnetic fields (EMF) play an essential role in the control of the biological activities of a human being.  Our natural state of good health and feeling of well being prevails when our biological activity is in balance.

The penetrative nature of electromagnetic radiation from mobile phones and computer VDUs can intrude and disturb the human EMF and create a biological imbalance that interferes with the body’s natural equilibrium.  As a result, we may experience poor health and potential breakdown of immune response.  At first, we are likely to notice such symptoms fatigue, lack of concentration, headaches, short-term memory loss, distorted vision, confusion and loss of strength.

European Parliament Recommends Stricter Safety Limits for Cell Phones & EMF’S

NY, Sep 18, 2008 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX) — The European Parliament has voted 522 to 16 to recommend tighter safety standards for cell phones. In light of the growing body of scientific evidence implicating cell phone use with brain tumors, the Parliament says, “The limits on exposure to electromagnetic fields [EMFs] which have been set for the general public are obsolete.”

The European Parliament “is greatly concerned at the Bio-Initiative international report concerning EMFs, which summarises over 1500 studies on that topic and which points in its conclusions to the health risks posed by emissions from mobile-telephony devices such as mobile telephones, UMTS, WiFi, WiMax and Bluetooth, and also DECT landline telephones.” Further, it points out the need to “address vulnerable groups such as pregnant women, newborn babies and children.”

The Mid-Term Review of the European Environmental and Health Action Plan recommends 36 specific points for improving human health. It points to changes that can improve air and water quality, and reduce exposures to toxic chemicals and EMFs that have been linked to health risks.

BioInitiative author Dr. Martin Blank, Columbia University professor and researcher in bioelectromagnetics says, “Cells in the body react to EMFs as potentially harmful, just like to other environmental toxins such as heavy metals and toxic chemicals. The DNA in living cells recognizes EMFs at very low levels of exposure, and produces a biochemical stress response. The scientific evidence tells us that our safety standards are inadequate, and that we must protect ourselves from exposure to EMFs due to powerlines, cell phones and the like.”

Lennart Hardell, MD, PhD and Professor at University Hospital in Orebro, Sweden who wrote on brain tumors and cell phones in the BioInitiative Report, says, “The evidence for risks from prolonged cell phone and cordless phone use is quite strong when you look at people who have used these devices for 10 years or longer, and when they are used mainly on one side of the head.” At a conference in London last week, Dr. Hardell noted that exposure to children poses even greater risk than to adults, a fact of concern since so many children now regularly use cell phones.

Noting the already lowered exposure limits of some European countries the EU Parliament is now calling on the EU Council to amend Recommendation 1999/519/EC for all equipment producing emissions in the 0.1 MHz to 300 GHz frequency range. This would include cell phones as well as other wireless devices. Wireless technologies that rely on microwave radiation to send emails and voice communication are thousands of times stronger than levels reported to cause some health impacts.
