What is an EMF?
In 1905, Albert Einstein proved within his Theory of Relativity that both electricity and magnetism simultaneously coexist, each supporting the other as both waves and particles traveling at the speed of light. Electricity produces magnetism perpendicular to the direction it is moving and magnetism produces electricity in any direction. This synergistic union forms an EMF or electromagnetic field.
Why Do EMFs Effect Us?
We are all bioelectrical organisms composed of 55-60% water. This makes our bodies excellent conductors of electricity. Additionally, each cell in our bodies is, in essence, a small battery that requires high energy electrons producing ATP (adenosine triphosphate); useable energy to charge cells. (Remember learning about the Krebs Cycle in High School Biology class?)
How Do EMFs Affect Us?
When cells are stressed they emit electrons which lower their voltage. This causes these stressed cells to have less oxygen available for healthy cell life, a lower or acidic pH, and to produce free radicals that attack other cells. Lack of oxygen to cells in the gut allow unfriendly bacteria to flourish, parasites to feed and secrete hydrogen gas (reflux), and fungus to form in the blood; promoting harmful spirochetes.
Yes, all of us are highly sensitive to each and every surrounding electromagnetic field. In reaction, our body's skin voltage will quickly rise and fall in direct relationship to the strength of these nearby energies. Reactive electrical currents can form within the body causing stress on various acupuncture meridians and their corresponding organs. Heart rate, blood pressure, and triglyceride levels will often increase reactively. A weakening of the intestinal lining may also occur. This can result in various digestive issues.
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) or adrenal fatigue could develop if we are exposed to strong electromagnetic fields for prolonged periods of time. CFS can occur when the body tries to correct, what it perceives as an "unnatural attack" by sensing the high skin voltage from an EMF. This induces the adrenal glands to secrete the "fight or flight" hormones: adrenaline, cortisol, and norephedrine. With frequent exposure to high EMFs, the adrenal glands can eventually fatigue causing us to suffer low energy, low productivity, and ill-health effects. Dr. Robert O. Becker relates this condition to promoting cancer.
Earth's magnetic fields shift each day from short daytime waves to long night-time waves. Our brains instinctually sense this magnetic shift causing our pineal glands to produce melatonin. In 2016, Joseph Kirshvink proved that our brains contain biogenic magnetite within the cerebral cortex and cerebellum fostering our brains' ability to sense the changes in polarity during Earth's magnetic field shifts. Melatonin helps us fall asleep and signals our brains to replenish and grow new cells. (BTW, we recommend to avoid melatonin supplements.)
The Wi-Fi router, inside your modem, sends out 2.4 GHz or 2.4 billion small EMF waves (approximately 5 inches long) per second into our bodies, 24/7. These are digitally produced, unevenly pulsed, and electromagnetically charged waves that can have an upsetting effect on our sleep patterns by effecting Theta and Delta brainwaves. With their daytime-like short and rapid waves, Wi-Fi radiation can confound our pineal glands into signaling that it is daytime thus ceasing production of melatonin; causing us to wake. In NYC, add to your proximity hundreds of Wi-Fi's, thousands of cell phones and other wireless devices, and residential cell towers within every quarter of a mile... it's a wonder any of us sleep through the night. At EMF Consultants, we have some simple and inexpensive solutions for you.
In 2016, the National Toxicology Program of Sweden's National Institute of Health proved a "direct causal link" between cell phone radiation and cancer. (See link to study in Research.) The study calls for Cell Phone Energy to be reclassified as a Group 1 toxin; alongside asbestos, cigarette smoke, uranium, and plutonium! In more than 3,700 studies, our bodies have been proven to be sensitive to even the smallest amounts of non-thermal electromagnetic energy. Because of this, as a common courtesy, I encourage you all to place your cell phones on airplane mode whenever you are nearby others, especially in enclosed spaces with reflective surfaces as found in trains, autos, or elevators.
Perhaps the most harmful non-ionizing radiation we encounter each day is produced within our own homes or workplaces. The alternating current (AC) inside our walls is the perfect antennae for radio frequencies (RF) of all kinds. Once these RF's piggy-back onto live wiring, very erratic electromagnetic interference (EMI) is formed. Depending on the levels of electric fields around us such as an ungrounded computer or floor lamp, the higher the levels of our body voltage, the more of this EMI we take on. EMI can upset and interfere with the proper electrical functioning of not only our computer systems but of our every cell. Dr. Neil Cherry proved that EMI can eventually cause us DNA mutation and chromosomal breaks. At EMF Consultants, we have a solution for this, too.
Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) and Very Low Frequency (VLF) radiation have long been known (70+ years) through studies to cause profound ill effects. Here is a true story that recently happened to me.
The power lines under our sidewalk leaked 23 times the BioIniatiative lethal limit of ELF. It had rained for a few days, so I thought to test the pipes under our kitchen sink. Lo and behold, they had an electric current running through them of 26 amperes! This meant that the entire plumbing system in our building was electrified! (Note: It only takes 0.006 amperes to induce cardiac arrest for a healthy person.)
I spoke with our superintendent's office and the landlord. Neither had ever heard of grounding a building's plumbing system. I called Con Edison and spoke with their top emergency technician. He had never heard of a Gaussmeter! (The meter used for testing power line ELF leakage.)
It's estimated that 10% of all buildings do not have grounded plumbing systems. (Even though, according to my electrician, it's OSHA code.) Grounding the plumbing in a building is an easy fix for our electrician. Do you know if you have power line leakage into your building and if your pipes are electrified? We at EMF Consultants can help you with this issue.
What Can We Do to Improve Your Health?
In NYC, we bear witness to so many morphed combinations of every possible multi-tiered set of EMF's or Super EMF's. EMF Consultants is the first New York company that measures electromagnetic field radiation in your home or business and presents you with immediate solutions.
We can test the entire wave spectrum from ELF's emitted by sources such as power line leakage through to microwave output (RF's) from nearby cell towers - all with the highest industry standards of accuracy... and, we will always first suggest the simplest and most expedient cost-effective solutions.
If you want structural resolutions for up to 95-99% radiofrequency radiation shielding (from cell towers, Wi-Fi's, all cell phones, etc.), then we expand our team nucleus to include an architect, contractor, and a licensed master electrician to work for you. There is no application or installation too large or small.
If you are seeking to buy or rent a new home, we can test for environmental hazards such as radon gas leakage, radioactivity, cell tower, power line, and step-down transformer emissions.
