What is EMF or EMR?

Wireless radiation or radio frequency radiation is emitted from all wireless devices. From cell phones to Wi-Fi, computers, TV transmitters and cell phone towers. This is also known as EMF (electromagnetic fields)EMF’s are emitted by all electrical appliances. These include:

  • cellphone towers
  • mobile phones
  • wifi routers
  • computers
  • lighting
  • television
  • power lines
  • electrical appliances
  • smart meters
  • cellphone towers


The body has never in its evolution ever experienced something so foreign to itself and therefore responds as if the incoming signal was an invader (like a virus). The body then experiences all sorts of symptoms which may be hard to identify.

EMF Symptoms

Within seconds the body at a cellular level recognizes the need to protect itself from attack. Unfortunately the protein coating on each cell cannot recognize EMF as our body did not evolve to recognize this unnatural signal.

As a result we may experience symptoms such as:

  • nausea

  • headaches

  • fatigue

  • dizziness

  • sleeplessness

  • skin rashes

  • sore eyes

  • vertigo

  • heart palpitations

As all people are not the same each person may experience different symptoms with different levels of exposure. Some symptoms may not be related to EMF exposure so we must be sure to find out by experimenting a little.

Am I Hypersensitive to EMF?

If you suffer from colds and flu often and have allergies, hay fever or asthma, have allergic reactions to dust, pollen and pollution.

Also if you suffer from any food allergies like gluten, dairy, nuts etc. you are more than likely to be electrically hypersensitive.

Some of these symptoms you may exhibit when exposed to EMF:

  • fatigue

  • sleeplessness

  • dry eyes

  • burning skin sensation on face

  • depression

  • dizziness

  • tremors

  • weakness

  • nausea

Things you can do to minimize your exposure and prevent symptoms occurring:

  • Try to avoid living near power lines and transformers

  • Check your bedroom to position your bed away from the meter board

  • Avoid mains plug-in clock radios near the bed

  • Use a latex or foam mattress avoiding spring or wire sprung mattresses

  • Avoid the use of Wi-Fi networks

  • Use only Ethernet cable

  • Use LCD screens not CRT monitors

  • Use a wooden desk not a conductive metal desk (EMF is induced into the desk)

  • Avoid living in a caravan or a house with steel walls

  • Limit the use of your mobile phone

  • Keep your mobile switched off at night when you sleep

  • Take mineral supplements

  • Drink plenty of clean water

EMF Hypersensitivity & Food Allergies

Most food allergies normally resolve as we get older, however this is not always the case with EMF.

As we grow older, some people may tolerate foods that previously caused allergic reactions. This is more likely to happen in the case of allergies to milk, eggs, and wheat, in which the symptoms may decrease by late childhood. It is not clear in all cases, however, if the improved symptoms are an indication that the allergy has disappeared or the child really wasn’t allergic in the first place. On the other hand, children rarely outgrow allergies to peanuts, tree nuts, fish and shellfish.

The case with EMF is that the older we get the more sensitive we become, especially if we are exposed to EMF. Health problems like leaky gut syndrome may worsen upon exposure to EMF therefore cause more allergies to crop up.
