How to Know if You Have an EMF Sensitivity & What to Do About It
INSIDE: By understanding the EMF sensitivity symptoms, you just might be able to understand why you've been having unexplained issues. Plus we provide some tips for what to do about it. Read on!
Being part of nature as we are, we are impacted by all the changes that are happening in our environment, be it rain, temperature change, or electromagnetic frequencies.
For instance, the sun, our life force, naturally emits waves. So, what happens when we imitate such a powerful force and expose ourselves to amounts of electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) never known to the human race before?
More and more research is being done on this subject. One study, published by NCBI has shown that there may be a link between the increased number of cancer patients and exposure to these frequencies.
If you're concerned about this subject or worry that you might be particularly affected by technology in this way, here's what you need to know about EMF sensitivity.
What Are the EMF Sensitivity Symptoms?
Have you ever wondered how ants or bees know what their purpose is or where they should go?
Well, just like any other living creature, humans, too, have an inner compass that helps us operate in a way that is in sync with nature. Each living creature has an energy field, and when it gets impacted by outside forces like EMFs, following our inner compass becomes very difficult.
While some will have hypersensitivity to such EMFs, others will attribute minor symptoms of exposure to something else.
Each individual has a unique energy field, and while some may experience mild EMF symptoms, others may find it very difficult to proceed with everyday tasks due to symptoms of EMF radiation.
Therefore, the first step to figuring out how sensitive to electromagnetic frequencies you are is to see if you experience symptoms of exposure.
Here are some of the most common EMF sensitivity symptoms...
Anxiety & Depression
Because these waves influence electrical activity in the brain, they can affect our mental state. This can affect the production of ‘’feel good’’ and ‘’stress’’ hormones which are linked to depression and anxiety.
Memory & Focus Issues
EMFs can disrupt our ability to feel mentally present. They affect neurological balance and can cause memory loss, trouble with cognition, and difficulty concentrating.
This makes us feel mentally spacey and unable to perform at our highest capacity.
Chronic Fatigue & Tiredness
When exposed to electromagnetic radiation for a prolonged period, our energy field gets bombarded with highly-charged energy. Over time, this can negatively affect the natural ability to restore energy via rest and sleep, making us feel tired all the time.
Insomnia, hypersomnia, and sleep apnea are some of the byproducts of EMF exposure. Microwaves of this sort put us in a state of energetic hyper-alertness, making it hard for our bodies to keep up with the natural circadian rhythms.
Numbness & Dizziness
Because electric and magnetic waves have a direct impact on our own energy field, they can easily become overpowering. Feeling dizzy, numb, or disassociated from reality is our nervous system's response to the inability to articulate the amount of radiation it is taking in.
Some people may find themselves feeling overstimulated and restless without a particular reason. Electromagnetic fields are not only linked to an unexplainable short attention span but may also trigger unpleasant nervousness and jumpiness.
Headaches & Tension
Strange pulsating tension in the head, headaches and migraines are very common EMF sensitivity symptoms. Our brain detects these overwhelming microwaves, and this directly impacts our own energy field.
Rashes, inflammation, and skin irritation can be symptoms of EMFs. This is particularly true for people who already have sensitive skin that quickly reacts to changes in the environment.
In some cases, constant exposure can create an imbalance in our digestive system. As a result, otherwise healthy individuals may struggle with frequent nausea, gallbladder, and liver issues, or gut dysbiosis.
How to Diagnose an EMF Sensitivity
When diagnosed, connected to a particular medical condition, and medically treated, the above-mentioned symptoms can subdue or vanish.
However, we rarely attribute these symptoms to EMF radiation, and therefore, we are labeled as having unexplained symptoms.
EMF sensitivity symptoms vary in intensity and don’t improve greatly over time. If the above-mentioned symptoms feel debilitating or you experience more of them at once, you might be hypersensitive to these types of waves.
We are all impacted by electromagnetic waves. Not only that, but the exposure to harmful microwaves gets more concerning every day, and the greatest danger of it is that we can’t really put a finger on it because it is invisible.
Here's how to know where you stand on the spectrum of sensitivity to electromagnetic radiation.
Ask yourself the following questions:
- How do you feel when you're in nature and far from electronics?
- How do you feel when you turn off your phone and computer?
- What is the sensation you feel when power is off?
Though it may be hard to know the answers to those questions since most of us are constantly exposed to EMFs, doing some little tests can at least help you try to figure it out.
If you experience any of the following once you reduce your EMF exposure, it's likely that you have an EMF sensitivity:
- Feel calmer and more balanced
- Anxiety and stress seems to subdue
- Headaches or the odd feeling of pressure in the head seems to alleviate
- It's a bit easier to be present and focus on your surroundings
- Less irritability
Who's Particularly Impacted by EMF Radiation?
We're all impacted by EMF radiation; it’s just a matter of how much. Some people are naturally hypersensitive to electromagnetic waves.
Others can develop a greater sensitivity over time as their nervous system and body weaken due to the stress of EMFs exposure.
Our sensitivity is different, so while some may feel overwhelmed by WiFi waves, others may find electronics in general cause an issue.
Here's who is most likely to develop EMF sensitivity...
People With a Sensitive Nervous System
Those who have a sensitive nervous system are naturally hyper-alert to sensory changes in the environment. They pick up energy and microwaves faster than other individuals.
Highly sensitive individuals who are sensitive to light, food, noise, or scents will be more affected by EMF exposure.
People Living in Busy Areas
People who live in busy areas are not only affected by electromagnetic fields in their homes but also those coming from their immediate environment, building, or area.
People Who Work With Technology
Those who work with technology are the most exposed to these microwaves. Over time, their energy fields gets weakened and they may become more sensitive to new exposure. The same applies to people whose screen time exceeds the average.
Teenagers, Children & Seniors
Teenagers and kids are sensitive during the development stages of life. Exposure can cause premature troubles with cognition, and prevent normal growth. It can also contribute to attention disorders and mental health issues at an early stage.
For elders, EMF exposure can contribute to faster mental decline.
People With a Weak Immune System
People with a weak immune system are more prone to diseases, and their system doesn’t have as much capacity to ward off electromagnetic disturbances.
People who have physical or mental health issues are more likely to be hypersensitive to microwaves coming from electronics as well.
What Can Help?
Though we can't completely eliminate EMFs, there are several things we can do to ease our EMF sensitivity symptoms...
Test for EMFs
The most accurate way to know for sure how high the levels of electromagnetic frequencies are in your environment is to conduct an EMF sensitivity test.
Electromyography and EMF radiation testing both can show you the level of exposure. There are also EMF filters available, but it is important to know that for some, these can further amplify the sensitivity, particularly for people who react badly to electric fields.
Turn Off Electronics
When it comes to our immediate environment, it is important to develop a habit of shutting off and unplugging electronics, including the wifi router when we go to sleep.
Have an Electronics-Free Area
If possible, it's good to have an area in the home that is completely electronics-free, ideally a bedroom or kids’ room.
Nature & Crystals
However, what can help the most is nature. We can minimize the exposure by using EMF protection crystals, or spending more time in nature and as far away from EMFs as possible.
As they develop, crystals accumulate healing frequencies that counteract electromagnetic fields and minimize their effects. Here are some of the best to use for this purpose:
- Elite Shungite
- Snowflake Obsidian
- Tourmalinated Quartz
Because they vibrate on a very high frequency, crystals for EMF protection have the ability to absorb and repel anything negative from our environment, microwaves included.
In comparison to filters, crystals can’t harm us or increase the existing sensitivity.
Furthermore, each of the EMF protection crystals has healing properties that can help alleviate unpleasant symptoms of exposure at the same time.
Whether you're worried about 5G health risks or if you're just experiencing unexplained symptoms, an EMF sensitivity is a valid concern.
Hopefully, this article shed some light on the issue and provided some useful tips to help you navigate this modern high-tech world with more health and well-being.
