Health Issues from Electromagnetic Radiation
Do you ever wonder about the effects your cell phone, computer or wireless interent might have on you? The topic is gaining much momentum as researchers and consumers begin to take a closer look at Electromagnetic sensitivity and electromagnetic field, also known as EMF, protection.
What is EMF anyway?
Everyone is exposed to a complex mix of weak electric and magnetic fields, both at home and at work, from the generation and transmission of electricity, domestic appliances and industrial equipment, to telecommunications and broadcasting.
Electrical currents are everywhere. Tiny electrical currents normally exist in the human body due to the chemical reactions that occur as part of the normal bodily functions, even in the absence of external electric fields. Nerves relay signals by transmitting electric impulses. Most biochemical reactions from digestion to brain activities go along with the rearrangement of charged particles.
Both electric and magnetic fields induce voltages and currents in the body. If our bodies are electrical by nature and we are also experiencing a number of external electrical stimuli it makes sense that these external electrical stimulations can adversely impact the body.
In the book, Disconnect: The Truth About Cell Phone Radiation, What the Industry Has Done to Hide It, and How to Protect Your Family (Dutton, 2010), Dr. Devra Davis takes a look at the controversy surrounding cell phone use and its possible link to brain cancer and other human health impacts.
Like many, Davis was skeptical about the ties between cell phone use and cancer. However, after just under a decade of poring over the research, she is now warning about the dangers of cell phone radiation. Green America editor Tracy Fernandez Rysavy talked to Dr. Davis about why she’s concerned about widespread cell phone use, and why it’s so vital to protect our children from cell phone radiation, even in the face of some uncertainty of harm.

I am personally very wary of cellphone and electronic impacts on the body. I use and highly recommend electromagnetic field (EMF) protection to everyone because I believe it is important.
Why is EMF protection important for me?
Nearly everyone functions among the technologic advancements of modern life. Cell phones, wireless internet, computers, smart meters, bluetooth devices, etc are a way of life now and they sure make things convenient... but at what price? If you have wireless technology in your home or work place, protection is important. If you are a cell phone user you also need to protect yourself.
Still unsure about the health impacts? In Maine, legislators are considering adding disclaimers to cell phones that would sate "This device emits electromagnetic radiation, exposure to which may cause brain cancer."

Just as you buckle up in the car, you are better safe than sorry right? The same should go for EMF protection especially since so much is still unknown.
Now, some people are clearly more impacted by EMFs than others. Those that are particularly bothered are deemed "EMF sensitive" and they experience some very troublesome symptoms.
What do EMF health issues look like?
Electromagnetic reactions often manifest in the following ways:
- A warm or burning sensation in the face somewhat like feeling sunburnt
- A tingling or prickling sensation across the face or other parts of the body
- Extreme dryness of mucus membranes such as the back of the throat and eyes
- A swelling of the mucus membranes such as nose, throat, ears and sinuses without any infectious cause
- Problems with concentration, loss of memory and dizziness
- A feeling of impending influenza (flu) that somehow never quite breaks out
- Headaches and nausea
- Teeth and jaw pains
- Aches and pains in muscles and joints
- Cardiac palpitations
I've even heard some complain of increased stress, erratic emotions and even insomnia that is attributed to Electromagnetic field or EMF sensitivity.
EMF protection is obviously designed to protect you but many don't realize it can also make you feel and perform better throughout the day regardless of potential sensitivity to EMF's.
How does EMF protection work and who needs?
Still not sure about EMF's and how protection works? Watch this quick video about how EMF protection works and who can benefit from it.
Even if you aren't experiencing EMF sensitivity you can gain much from EMF protection. Often times you never realize how much you have been impacted until you begin protecting yourself.
Here is an overview of some of the studies and the ways others have found positive results...
Results displayed a positive direct correlation between those who wore a Q-Link® and those that scored greater on both total body strength and cognitive flexibility. A resultant average improvement in total body strength of 6.05% was noted for males and 5.72% for females tested.
A double-blind study conducted by David Eichler, PhD, Behavioral Consultant, indicates that the Q-Link ClearWave (an 'Active' SRT product), helps to reduce anxiety experienced in students while in the public school setting. The study involved a school district in Northeast Kansas. The implications of reduced anxiety can be improved classroom performance and improvement in overall attitude and well-being of the student.

Reduce stress and increase energy with EMF protection!
If you are looking to protect yourself, to increase productivity or improve energy then EMF protection is for you and it is very affordable! I use and recommend Q-link products that you can find out more about here. They are available in an array of simple, sporty or elegant product options ranging in price from about $25 and up. Protection and enhanced physical and emotional performance are attainable to virtually anyone.
What is your experience with EMFs?
How difficult is it for you to turn off your electronic devices? Have you every tried just turning it all off and seeing how you do? How did you feel going "unplugged"? Try it out and tell us about it in the comments below.
