EMF Side Effects
Electric appliances as well as several other household products emit low grade electromagnetic fields or EMFs. As these fields compound and layer, the result is a condense cloud of harmful, even toxic radiation. As such, the kitchen of a home is often considered a “hotspot” for EMFs; however, all of the rooms in a house are affected.
This heightened exposure to electromagnetic radiation via household products, power lines, and other electrical devices has toxic effects on the body and overall health. Initially, EMFs stresses the pineal gland, which controls the hormonal balance in the body. As the pineal gland is affected, it makes an individual more susceptible to environmental sensitivity. This issue has an effect on sleeping habits, emotional health, and cognitive ability. Likewise, individuals highly effected experience chemical sensitivities or environmental illnesses such as chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia. Increased stress levels are also associated with EMFs, causing headache, muscle pain, chest pain, anxiety, restlessness, stomach upset, change in sex drive, lack of focus and motivation, and depression. Especially high EMFs can even be linked to brain tumors and chronic diseases including cancer.
While it is difficult to avoid all EMF radiation, certain precautions can be taken to avoid EMF radiation. An EMF meter is one of the most import EMF protection devices available. A meter assesses the level of emission from individual electrical devices as well as the room as a whole. Determining and avoiding the highest emitting items is crucial for overall health. Additional steps that can be taken to avoid radiation include purchasing and running an aquarium in the home to absorb microwave energy, limiting mobile phone use and using a wired internet connection. An additional option includes surrounding the home with several crystals of Himalayan rock salt or oolitic limestone to ground the waves.
11/22/2013: Robert Henry from Ten Mile ,tn: "HI U GOD FEARING FOLKS DOIN:
Let me tell you another story. Concerned with house EMF's, so I bought me a meter to help me seek out the electrical problems that will do me in. Yep, our microwave is bad news Charlie. Don't just back off when it's running, get out of the room. What was so disturbing to me is that our laptop was just as bad as our microwave if your had it in your lap. The strength goes down with inches, so use this device and stay 6" or more away least you mess up your recreational area.
I also learned that our FIR Sauna that I brag on often, also can do you in. I will just conclude that the EMF's are a trade off for getting detoxed. Life is just a bowel of cherries and we need to rejoice that we have a site like Earth Clinic that we can share our health success' and failures with our fellow man. That may not seem like a big deal to you, but it is in this day and time. I'm sure this site is a target to be shut down by our handlers.
Too much free expression. Got to toe the line.
Love you all =========ROBERT HENRY============="
[YEA] 02/25/2013: James from Melbourne, Australia: "Hello, I just have a suggestion that I think would help others about protection from EMF and microwave radiation. I believe a good size aquarium of at least 50 gal in your room will help a lot in absorbing harmful microwave energy. I haven't done experiments on this to really prove that it works but you can try it. This youtube link might convince you: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KprvZ8cBfW4"Replies
[NAY] 11/14/2013: Camur from Ireland replies: "An aquarium of water in a room is not a protection against electromagnetic radiation. Unless you are fully immersed in the aquarium yourself most or all of the time, then this method will not block out EMFs from your room, home or body.The only proven way to really prevent your body absorbing the seriously damaging microwave and EMF radiation in your home is to not let it in - limit mobile phone use, change wifi to wired connections, replace cordless phone and wireless baby monitors with corded, turn off mobiles and night and keep out of bedrooms, keep room as clear of electrics as possible, ie clock radio, electric blanket. These are all easy to do, however, keeping EMFs from outside coming in is not as easy. eg phone masts, smart meters, neighbours' wifi etc. In many cases people have had to shield their homes with specialist paint to block out EMFs, which can be effective if carried out properly, and sleep under EMF shielding canopies which also helps some people. I know because this is what I have had to do. Illnesses from the increasing wireless technology and electromagnetic radiation from pylons, windfarms etc are growing at a alarming rate. Everybody needs to know this, whether they feel it or not, we are all at risk from health effects."
04/21/2011: Clemens from Lhasa, Tibet: "Hello,
I am about to restore a house that has no heating at the moment.
I was thinking about putting the hot water radiator system (a furnace and many hot water pipes heating the radiators in every room, as it is the habit in my country). Anyhow, talking with an architect, I learned that installing a system using electric heating plates is cheaper and wastes less energy if always kept on instead of turning it on and off al the time, plus, because after a while, because the wals themselves start irradiating heat, the overall temperature is more even and the air doesn't overheat or overdry.
I was wondering though, if electric heating plates have a bad effect on health or not and if it wise to use them?
All the best"
02/16/2014: Diane from Sherborn,ma: "Hello Bill, Do you have an opinion about EMF's and could they cause peripheral neuropathy? I was told by someone that IS the reason for my PN and I should disconnect my modem every night and put tin foil on my four walls of my bedroom and the ceiling...I've read some of your suggestions and was looking for and educated opinion I respect.
Second... would infra red saunas help PN or make it worse?
Lastly would a large 60 inch TV be bad for PN, my doctors have no opinion.."
09/10/2012: S from Sd, California: "Hi, I'm writing on behalf of my Mother, who suffers severe electromagnetic hypersensitivity to cellphones, celltowers, major powerlines, and wifi. She gets burns on her skin from exposure, a cracking sensation in her head and body numbness just being in the same car or auditorium with those who have their cellphones with them. It's very hard recently living in our apartment in San Diego, as many neighbors now have satellite dish & wifi. We are looking for safer housing. We've made many adjustments already in the realm of health, dietary, even trying several shielding mechanisms, none of which have worked. We've even attempted moving but as yet nothing has panned out. Any help you have or suggestions would be much appreciated.
Please, if there are any resources or directions that could possibly help in dealing with this, let us know. Thank you"Replies
09/11/2012: Sunshine Mommy from Muscat, Oman replies: "Three very similar possible causes, which I read about recently regarding fillings in teeth and electromagnetic activity:
1. If people have different types of metal fillings in their mouth, this can cause electrical sensitivity. Different metals include gold / amalgam / mercury etc.
When I was researching Oil Pulling - one of the subjects who had different fillings in his mouth could actually 'hear' the local radio station in his head due to the reaction between the metals, and somehow he was picking up the radiowaves. I believe this is more common than we realise!
2. Possible allergy to the fillings and the material they are made off which create sensitivity to the individual and their surroundings.
My mum got her Gold filling removed due to allergy and cannot wear gold jewelry.
3. Amalgam fillings react with EMF and this can cause increased mercury leakage in the human body. The mercury leakage could be the cause of illness. Amalgam fillings which contain mercury seems to have several references to EMF on Google.
Points 1 and 3 together could cause more problems? Hope this is of some help."
09/11/2012: Ed2010 from Oakville, Canada replies: "Hi this is to S from Sd, California: Keep Tulsi plants in your house both indoor and outdoor. Tulsi prevents harmfull radiation and energy to both the house and for the people dwelling in the house.
Tulsi is a herb and a divine plant in Hinduism. You can even eat the couple tulsi leaves raw, which is a good cure for cough and bronchitis. Tulsi rejuvenates cell which are affected by harmful radiation.
Forbid using Microwave, Infrared Stoves, bluee tooth headset. Minimize the use of television, mobile phones, hope this helps."
09/11/2012: Lisa from Thousand Oaks, Ca, Usa replies: "Hi S from SD, I'm not sure if you've seen Robyn from Australia's posts but she is also someone who has extreme reactions to EMFs as well as chemicals. I will give suggestions that may help. I know I work to protect myself from EMFs all the time because although, many of us don't have the same reactions as those who are extremely sensitive, we are still being highly affected in negative ways. I mostly learned of this from a Longevity Now conference I attended awhile back. There was a panel of about 5 drs. All being asked the same questions and one was: In the last 7 years or so, what have you seen dramatically change in your practice or field of expertise? The answer across the board was problems which were being caused from EMFs! We are being bombarded by them everywhere now!
What I do is wear a Q link all the time. I have been wearing one for over 10 years having learned about them that long ago. Google them and you'll find out about them. Since that time there are other companies that make EMF protectors which may or may not be effective. I only mention this one because it's the one I use. I also have an EMF protector pad on my bed so while I'm sleeping I'm protected since there are electricals all through your home. The only electrical I keep in my bedroom is a small clock far from my head. When I am on my computer for work, I have my feet on an earthing pad. You can google that too or go here to learn more:
The far infrared sauna we use emits no EMF and that is made by Clearlight saunas: http://healwithheat.com/ Thus, I detox from heavy metals in one and am protected from EMFs simultaneously!
Anyway, these are some of the efforts I use regarding this ever increasing issue for everyone. And also, I agree with Ed2010 in his last paragraph! We haven't used a microwave in about 5 years.
Hope this info helps, Lisa"

10/21/2013: Robyn from Melbourne replies: "I suffer bad from emfs. It eletricutes me to use this computer, mobiles are worse. I've found it almost impossible to get away from them. amalgums, any toxicity I think acts as a conductor & so those of us who are toxic or have lyme or some such infection ie. immune suppression are more susceptible. I tried to buy land in the country but they had wifi out there too, to say nothing of the pesticides & I'm allergic to all that grass."
11/09/2010: Norma from Orlando, Florida: "I also have been diagnosed with EE, and have also been challenged with environmental illness. Just wanted to make others aware about what I think my trigger is and that is electromagnetic fields and radio frequencies. I am extremely electrohypersensitive and when I am in fluorescents and especially CFL's or around a lot of WiFi (cell towers, etc), I can feel the pain in my body begin among other symptoms and I most certainly can feel the acid reflux starting. If I try to eat after I have been exposed than I will not be able to swallow and my symptoms will begin. I know this may sound crazy to some, but it has been a very serious problem for me and I have been struggling with this condition for 5 years. I too have gone to naturopaths, and many other natural healthcare practioners, but they too are stumped by this condition and the fact that my body is so extremely sensitive to all of the new technology. Anyway, I just wanted to pass this along to hopefully help someone else."Replies

Check out DNRS (dynamic neural retraining system). Let me know any questions as have been reaching out to others to be of help."
[SIDE EFFECTS] 12/16/2008: Lilaki from Albany, NY: "When I talk on my cell phone (Motorola 830), next to head, after about 15-20 minutes, it often gets hot and I feel nauseous. There must be some way to test the radiation because this can't be healthy? I am one to not really believe in the conspiracy theory about cell phones causing cancer but I only feel safe using one of those Cell Phone EMF Protection Mobile Headset (with the air tube). Just make sure you get the newer version with the piece that wraps around the ear. I have an older version and it falls out of my ear easily. Also use a dab of super glue on the connector, because mine kept falling apart until I did."
EC: There is something you can get to measure EMFs... We bought one about 10 years ago and it still works great. Called Dr. Gauss meter... back then it cost about $45. Cell phone EMFs were TERRIBLE 10 years ago. They have gotten considerably better over the years, but you will still see the meter pulse into the yellow (sometimes red) zone every 10 seconds when the cell phone is just on stand-by. Haven't tested it on a Blue Tooth yet.
02/24/2009: Jantien from London, UK replies: "A great way to disarm the EM waves from your mobile phone is to stick a copper coin (i.e. penny) at the back with a piece of bluetack. I have had this recommended and tested by my kinesiologist - it works!"
04/24/2008: Victoire from Cannes, France: "CELL PHONES: I have noticed the more time I spend on my cell phone, the more aches and pains I get. I feel some strange buzz in my head, mostly on the side I hold the telephone, I get massive headaches, heavy and congested sinuses, my ear gets hot, like burning and I feel tired most of the time. The quality of my sleep has decreased and I have tendency to feel depressed. My digestive system has become temperamental and I feel edgy. Nothing has changed in my life except for an increase of the time I spend on the cell phone. Are the electromagnetic waves coming from the cell phone polluting me, affecting my whole body, and making me feel so poorly? Please post this question on the site. Thank you"Replies
08/22/2009: Sullykip from Brooklyn, New York replies: "P.S. Victorie: The answer is Yes! EMFs have a huge effect on all of us. And like all toxins, they affect some of us far more adversely than others. As I say, my doctors taught me that those of us with high levels of heavy metals in our bodies, and those of us with fungal infections or candida, will suffer far more from EMF's. So in addition to reducing your exposure to EMF's, you may want to look into getting a heavy-metal test, and /or evaluating for fungal infections.
But either way, if you turn off your cell phone and wireless router at night and remove all electronics from within 5 feet of your bed, you'll sleep better. Also try grounding your bed and bedroom with plants."
05/17/2013: Them8triark from Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, Usa replies: "!!! IN REGARDS TO USING PENNIES TO SHIELD EMF'S!!! You want to use ONLY the pennies that are made BEFORE 1983 as they have copper in them. "Pennies made after that year" are "made of 97.5 percent zinc and 2.5 percent copper." (http://www.wisegeek.org/what-is-a-penny-made-of.htm)
I am not scientific at all, but if copper is an ingredient that is useful in protecting from EMF's, then you may not want to use newer pennies."
[YEA] 07/20/2010: Lisa from Thousand Oaks, Ca, Usa: "EMFs have become quite a bit of concern in recent years. I have seen some people quite sensitive to them and highly affected. Dr. Joseph Mercola just wrote an article about the concerns of cellphones- something most of us now use. Personally, I have worn an EMF protection device for about 9 years. The endorsers are quite impressive- such as Lynne McTaggert, Ken Wilber and Gary Null. I've even noticed Anthony Robbins wears one. The product is called the QLink and they come in different styles. They all do the same thing though just some are fancier than others. They also carry home protection devices of which I have not tried. I feel it's worth having this protection and encourage everyone to do research on EMF protection. I mention this product because I use it and liked what I read about the research that was done to create the devices. Hope this info helps those with EMF issues. Lisa"Replies
04/14/2012: Shabda Girl from Santa Barbara, Ca replies: "I have used and sold EMF protection devices for several years, and am also electrically sensitive. I talk to a lot of people about protection, and get a lot of feedback. I have to say, emphatically, that people have very individual responses to the different types of products (QLink included). Make sure you can return whatever you buy if it doesn't work for you. And, don't go by your initial reaction to a product. A lot of them act comparably to something which suppresses symptoms with a stronger energy pattern or one that interferes with your ability to sense pain (think painkillers), and though you will initially feel better, because your energy field may adapt over time to the device into a pattern which is not natural for you, you may not know the net result of what a device will cause until you've lived with it for at least a couple of weeks. Probably longer. Whatever you get, you want it to protect your basic energetic organization, rather than to act allopathically by ultimately suppressing your ability to react and also exposing yourself to an even more complex set of interactions of energy fields. Blessings all! Shabda Girl"
[YEA] 08/22/2009: Sullykip from Brooklyn, NY: "I know some EMF remedies that everybody can do themselves, at little or no cost.
1) Remove all electronic objects from within a 5 foot radius of your bed. Electronics emit radiation very strongly within a five foot field, but weakly thereafter. Your body needs peace and calm most of all when it sleeps--that's when it restores its energy and tries to heal itself. So your bed is the most important place to make EMF-free. By removing all radio-alarm clocks, electric clocks, phones, lights, etc from the area near your bed, you make a good start. Just put your alarm clock at the otehr end of the room, on your bureau--it will work better there, anyway! As far as lamps, you can either do without the bedside lamp, use a soy-candle instead, or, you can unplug your lamp (if you leave it on your bedstand) each night before going to sleep. Either way, if you make sure no electronics are active (ie, plugged in) within a 5-foot radius of your bed, you will sleep much, much better and be stronger overall.
2) Ground your bed--and your house--with plants! Put a plant that is in a natural pot--such as stoneware, wood, or pottery (clay) on a table also of natural substance (wood) by your bed. Take a strong or long piece of cloth that is either silk, cotton or wool or hemp (ie natural; ideally organic, but fine if conventional). Tie one end of the cord to a leg of the table that the plant is on. Tie the other end to a leg of the bed. Now your bed is Grounded. Seems ridiculous but is true. The plant derives strong natural harmonious energy from the earth's core. The energy will travel through the cord, to your bed. You can do this anywhere in your house--tie one end of a cord to a leg of a table that a plant is on, and tie the other end to a tassle of a natural-fiber rug, such as a wool rug, or cotton rug, or hemp-mat. Now the whole room is grounded, through the rug. If you already had plants around, this costs you nothing. You can tape the cord to the floor so it doesn't trip anyone, if you want. The more plants in natural pots (placed on natural surfaces) you have, the more grounded your house will be. Crystals work well too.
3) always always always turn your cell phone off at night.
4) in fact, turn it off whenever you do not need it to be on. You probably do not need it to be on as much as you imagine you do. We all think we're important and that everyone is trying to reach us all the time. This is somewhat of an illusion. The world will not end if you turn your cell phone off most of the day. Try it. Try only turning it on to check yr messages.
5) If you must have your cell phone on during the day, place it in the next room, or at least 6 feet away from you. It may need to be on, but it does not need to be in your pocket! That is what "loud ringing" is for. Put the cellphone far away from you. Say you work as a salesclerk. Put the phone at the other end of the store. Say you're a house-wife/husband. Keep the phone in the next room, the one you're not in. Just set the ringer on "loud." Unless you're deaf, you'll hear it. It absolutely does Not need to be in your pocket (where its strong & unharmonious signals will, on a low level, fritz your brain all day long).
6) Try the other guy's suggestion--get some "blue stick" at a hardware store, it's only $2-3 for a pack of 4 of the putty-sticks; use it to "glue" a penny (or two or three pennies) to the back of your cell phone. The EMFs will be reduced. Any copper or silver disk should reduce the EMFs. A disk of black onyx or black tourmaline also works nicely, as these inexpensive gemstones absorb EMF radiation. "Apache Tears" work very well; they are often sold as disks. Any black natural gemstone will absorb emfs.
7) You can test the efficacy of these devices kinesthetically. Ask a good friend or partner to help you. Don't tell them what the experiement is about. Say it will be explained afterwards. Ask them to stand up straight, leave their left arm & hand hanging down at their side, and to hold out their right arm in front of them, so that it is parallel to the ground. Remove their phone from their pocket, and place it at the other end of the room. Have them stand in an open space, at least 5 feet away from all electronic devices. The way you test them is:
a) STEP ONE: you stand perpendicular to them. You place your hand on top of their right arm, just below the wrist, and press downward gently but firmly. You tell them to Resist you, as much as they can. You increase pressure gently but firmly.
first test them with nothing in their left hand (which is resting at their side). You press down on their right arm; see if you can push it down. If they are healthy and strong, you can not. If you are much stronger than them: Just push a medium amount, not so as to push the arm down, but enough to test their strength. You must then use the same level of pressure during all other parts of the experiment, so as to be consistent.
B) STEP TWO: next, test them while they hold a known toxin in their left hand. The left side of the human body is the receiving side. Ie, the body receives information from items and forces through its left side. So if they hold a known toxin in their left hand, it will make them weak, and you should suddenly be able to push down their right arm quite easily. For example, have them hold a paper cup with some ammonia in it. Have them take a whiff of the ammonia in the cup first, to make double-sure that their body understands what is in the cup. then they hold the cup in their left hand, which is still resting at their side, down by their hip. Then they hold their right arm out, strongly, parallel to the floor, as before, and you say "Resist me." You press down on their right arm gently but firmly. The odds are, when they are holding the cup of ammonia that they just sniffed, the person's right arm will go weak.
If it does not: The person's electrical system is not in alignment. If they can resist you as strongly as they did before (when not holding the ammonia), that means their electrical system is out of whack, and/or needs some help. You can't do the rest of the experiment. It would be like asking a blind person to read a signpost. The person may need some magnesium. Or, I dunno. Ask Ted!
Another good example of a known toxin you can use for the first part of the experiment is fluoride-toothpaste. Any old tube of Crest or Colgate or Tom's-of-Maine-with-Fluoride will do. (BTW Colgate bought toms-of-maine. They are now the same company). Have the person put a little dollop of toothpaste on their tongue, and hold it in their mouth. They should NOT swallow. They hold the tube of toothpaste (open) in their left hand, which is at their side. They hold up their right arm, so that it is parallel to the ground; You say 'resist me!' and press down gently but firmly, increasing pressure as they resist. If their electrical system is in alignment, their right arm will go down down down like a limp noodle. You did not even tell them what the experiment was about, so this is not subjective. As far as they know, fluoride toothpaste is good for them.
C) STEP THREE: Now for the cell-phone. Take the person's cell-phone, which is unprotected. Make sure it is turned-on. Put it in their left hand, which as always, is down by their hip. Their left arm is at rest. Have them raise their right arm so that it is parallel to the floor. Place your hand on their right arm, just below the wrist. Say 'Resist me." Press down gently but firmly. Their right arm will go weak. Why? Because their cell phone, which is exerting strong discordant electromagnetic radiation, is in their left hand, and their left side is their receiving side.
D) STEP FOUR: Put their cell phone far away, or at least 6-10 feet away. Test the person with nothing again, just as a neutral step. See if, with no toxins in the vicinity, they can resist you as they did initially. They should be able to.
E) STEP FIVE: Take the cell phone that you have just now "protected" by attaching several (3) pennies with "Blue stick" to it. Put the "protected" cell phone in the person's left hand. Test them just as you did in STEP FOUR. If the pennies are adequately protecting your phone, the person will stay strong.
If they are weak when holding your protected phone: the three pennies are not strong enough to protect this person. They may be unusually vulnerable to electromagnetic radiation. The pennies are a cheap do-it-yourself remedy that while good, is not 100% effective. They reduce EMFs, but can only do so much. If you have a phone that emits a LOT of EMFs, you may need stronger measures. (Lap top computers are stronger than cell phones. They may require ten pennies. Try it). There are many EMF-reduction products sold that are very good--that are even excellent. I can't mention brand-names here b/c it's not kosher. Generally, the ones that offer a 90-day moneyback guarantee are better than those that offer only a 30-day one. A 30-day money back policy is probably a lame product. If pennies glued to your phone (or laptop) don't work, try gluing on onyx disks, or apache-tears-disks, or black tourmaline. Try silver disks. If those don't work, try some of the 60 or 90 day money back guarantee products. Test them! If they don't work for you, return them. I have a "resonator" necklace I bought from a site, that comes with a black-onyx and lithium battery charm, and it is very effective. I never take it off. My chiropractor, MD and naturopath have all tested it. I'm very sensitive to EMF's because I have aluminum poisoning. So I really need my protective necklace, my plants that ground my house, and etc. I keep my cell phone off whenever possible, and when it must be on, it's always on my right side, not my left. I can feel the difference whenever I accidentally carry it on my left side--I feel dizzy.
I've seen my resonator, when worn by people who go weak when carrying a cell phone, make these people strong enough to resist anything even when carrying the phone.
Heavy metals, EMF's, fungus-es, and yeast all work synergistically. They support each other and promote each other. I don't understand the science behind it, but my (integrative) MD, who's helping me chelate aluminim and mercury, explained it to me. When I am near EMFs--say at a laptop computer with the wireless on--I feel very dizzy, and I cann't focus. This is in part b/c of the EMF's. But it is also because the Candida inside my stomach and head, and the fungi, think they are being attacked (by the EMF) and act up. It's a perfect storm--and perfectly awful! I have high levels of heavy metals, and Candida, and fungus. I'm sure I'm not alone. The best solution, for me, is to a) chelate the darn aluminum, which is promoting the Candida and mold. b) once I've chelated the aluminum, I can get rid of the yeast and fungus. c) Once I've done that, I will not be as vulnerable to EMF's. D) in the meanwhile, and even once I'm better, I protect myself from EMFs by reducing exposure as much as possible--only using the wireless on my laptop when I need to, only turning my phone on when I need to; and by grounding my home, protecting my sleeping area, and putting reduction devices on my phone and laptop, and wearing personal protection (my resonator). If you're on a budget and would rather not buy commercial protection devices--try using plants in natural pots, and try adhering pennies to your phone and laptop with blue-stick! It's surprising what you can do yourself. I've also heard you can make your own EMF-reduction pyramids with copper wire, and ground your whole house that way. I'm sure you can google this.
But most of all, turn your cell phone and wireless signal (router) off at night. And get the electronics away from your bed! And if your job entails sitting at a live computer all day, and it's giving you headaches--consider switching fields. Why should you suffer? If you really can't switch--there are products strong enough to ground a computer, and self-protection devices that are strong also. However, the best protection is elimination.
I'd be curious to hear what people find, if they try the do-it-yourself kinesthetic arm-test. Given, it is a crude test and not the "proper" method that trained kinesthesiologists used. But I've seen it used successfully by many. Dying to hear if it works for some out there with cell phones.

02/17/2011: Bess from Calgary, Alberta, Canada replies: "Hi Epona - It seems like a lot of people were wondering what EMF protection Skullykip used in the 08/22/2009 post. There were about 5 requests for the information but no response. I did a search using his/her description (black onyx lithium battery charm resonator) and it came up with EarthCalm Galaxy Gem (earthcalm. Com). Together with the resonator, it costs about $400 - so I hope it works! Other people have had luck with Q-Link products (like Lisa from Thousand Oaks). Good luck finding a suitable product!"
[YEA] 02/17/2011: Lisa from Thousand Oaks, Ca, Usa replies: "Hi Epona,
I have worn a q-link for about 10 years now. I wear it all the time and it has some impressive endorsers who use it. I will say this though, I attended the Conscious Life Expo this weekend here in LA and had the opportunity to see a booth that carried the earth calm emf protector. The woman who worked the booth said she'd worn the q- link for quite a few years before being introduced to earthcalm. She has been wearing that one for 10 years now and upon putting it on the first time, her asthma disappeared and she hasn't had it since! She said up to then she'd always needed her inhaler and hasn't used it since then.
She let me try the pendant for 45 minutes to see if there were any changes because she said w/ this emf protector you actually feel changes if in fact your problems were due to them. Well, I have to say I could feel changes definitely! So, my point is, I would look into that one. I believe both of them are the same price. You can google earthcalm for detailed info of how it works. If I had the money, I would buy earthcalm in a heartbeat after I tried it! Hope this helps."

Put a plant that is in a natural pot--such as stoneware, wood, or pottery (clay) on a table also of natural substance (wood) by your bed. Take a strong or long piece of cloth that is either silk, cotton or wool or hemp (ie natural; ideally organic, but fine if conventional). Tie one end of the cord to a leg of the table that the plant is on. Tie the other end to a leg of the bed. Now your bed is Grounded. Seems ridiculous but is true. The plant derives strong natural harmonious energy from the earth's core. The energy will travel through the cord, to your bed. You can do this anywhere in your house--tie one end of a cord to a leg of a table that a plant is on, and tie the other end to a tassle of a natural-fiber rug, such as a wool rug, or cotton rug, or hemp-mat. Now the whole room is grounded, through the rug. If you already had plants around, this costs you nothing. You can tape the cord to the floor so it doesn't trip anyone, if you want. The more plants in natural pots (placed on natural surfaces) you have, the more grounded your house will be. Crystals work well too.
any documentaion showing that even plants even without a hole in the bottom linking to earth , and even crystels 2 crystels? will ground you ???"

[YEA] 05/02/2014: Greenlllll from Columbia, Sc: "EMF Help:
Yea for Earthing, and camping out.
First of all, I've poured through this site over many years, making many contributions and trying to get to the root cause of my mysterious pains. I'm now happy to say, that I've finally figured it all out, but now that I know, I am unable to share the entirety of that root cause, for the same reason I was unable to find out the info in the first place.
So, I'm just going to list the things that have worked for me the most to overcome the headaches around the eyes, sore throat, hairloss, dust allergies, mold allergies, lip-sores & sores all over the inside of the mouth, voice loss, flu..., in order:
Living in the woods, away from people, which, unfortunately may involve tresspassing, which I dislike and cannot recommend.
Camping in a national forest, FAR away from people, not at an official camp-site. I found a place where I could pull off the road and parked at this small offroad strip for 3 weeks. Some reserves allow campers for 3 weeks, and some only 2 weeks. At the very last day, when I arrived back to my truck, I found a bright orange sticker about 1' x 1' that was impossible to get off my window, telling me to be gone that day or get towed.
The reason camping out works is because 1 you're grounded, and 2 you're away from people. Don't ask.
So 1st thing is avoidance of EMF sources.
When you cannot help but be around EM sources, wear polarized sunglasses. Keep the car windows up, even though your A/C doesn't work. Keep your mouth closed & lips pursed. Mucus membranes are vulnerable. Eyes are the most vulnerable to EMFs.
You will crave iced tea, chocolate, and oranges. Try not to drink iced-tea & chocolate around EMFs. Oxalic acid makes you more vulnerable. Do eat oranges and take citric acid before being exposed to EMFs to purge your body of oxalic acid. Read up on Col Joe for more on that, but he only offers part of what you need to know.
The PC program Audible Cropcircle may help, if you're clever.
EM meters might be useful, but can also be a double-edged sword. Beware of false positives...
Of course, you've probably figured out that hot baths can help with the headaches quickly, but not always.
Trader Joes sells this Eye-support supplement which helps with the eye-headaches tremendously. Get this in case of emergencies. It's cheap and tastes great only when you have an eye-headache. If you don't have an eye-headache it tastes so-so.
Earthing works, & so does shielding, but Earthing is cheaper, but it only truly works if you can get to a true ground, and that's the tricky part if you're stuck on the 2nd floor of your apartment.
Try to stay earthed. You're safest when you're furthest away from all people. It can be lonely. I know! I live on a boat. I'm lonely as heck. Trust No One.
Do sungazing correctly. It helps ballance emotions & deal w/ lonliness.
When you get a good EMF detetor, one that's not hacked, it can help you figure out what's really going on, but this world is a grand deception. Best of luck. If you're a Baha'i, or true believer of any faith, read the sacred word at least twice a day, especially when things get anxious & tense. Read it out loud."
10/17/2012: Colleen from Denver, Co: "For Ted - question about Q-link and other products that reduce/diminish the emf - since our bodies do require a small certain amount of electric to run on (very small) do these products stop our own necessary body electric from working for us? what are your views on this subject? thanks."Replies
10/18/2012: Colleen from Denver, Co replies: "apartment living -hey ted - which floor of an apartment building has less emf's - bottom, middle, or top?"
10/18/2012: Lisa from Thousand Oaks, Ca, Usa replies: "Hi Colleen, I notice that Ted has not responded but, I thought I should give you a link to hear from the founder who created the Q-link. I have been wearing one for about 13 years now and I use other EMF protection products as well. I have heard several drs. speak on the subject of EMFs and the negative effects they are having on everyone. At the Longevity Now conference I went to last year, it was interesting because they had about 5 drs. on a panel and the question posed to all of them to answer was, in their particular field of expertise, what had they seen a rise in over the course of about the last 7 years? Each one of them spoke about various negative changes and each said they attributed them to the amount of EMFs we were being bombarded by in a very big way. What I have understood from my own studying is, protecting ourselves and our biofield from the EMFs puts us back in correct resonance to work optimally. In addition to the Q-link I also use Earthing products on my bed and while at the computer doing my work. I have seen with a trifield meter how these products literally drop out the EMFs from various objects like computers, cell phones, even lamps which we don't normally think about.
Anyway, here is the link to an interview with the founder:
I find the subject fascinating. Hope this information helps. Lisa"
10/09/2012: Rob from M-gold, Ms/USA: "Good day to you. I'm very concerned about my health. For over 8 years now, I've been suffering with RA and other imbalances in my body that I don't think should be (RA isn't in my families history at all)! First of all, I'm not some problematic person with zero ambition. I just got in trouble (for the first time) by affiliating myself with the wrong people and I've learned my lessons. My argument is this: I truly believe that the bracelet I had to wear for 5 long years has had a very negative effect on my body and as a result distorted my immune system causing me to develope RA. Those Electro Magnetic pulses surging through one's body has to have a negative effect on the body after having to endure it for "5" Years! I know there should be viable studies on this particular. I've had to endure such injustices over the years and this is just another one. Please inform me, validate my claim(s), and contact me... Thanks a lot everyone. Live Optimistically!"

08/11/2012: Richard from Miami, Florida, Usa: "I developed EMF sensitivity about fourteen years ago. I moved into a top-floor apartment in Miami Beach, and my downstairs neighbor was a ham radio operator. He had his radio antenna on the roof of the building, about eight feet away from my head as I sat at my desk. I was a college student back then, and I sat at that desk all evening long. And my neighbor talked on his radio all evening long, five or six nights a week. For nearly three months, I hardly slept. My head would not shut down and let me sleep at night. I thought I was going insane. At that time, I knew nothing about the effects of radio frequency on the human brain. After about three months, I did learn what was causing the problem, and the landlord made my neighbor move his antenna. But the damage was already done. I had become highly sensitized, not only to radio frequency, but to EMF as well.
Over the years I have tried many, many different devices and techniques for dealing with this problem. Most of the man-made devices were too strong for me. I do still use one of those devices, which I can tolerate, but it only provides me with limited protection (I may not mention the brand name). Of the natural/mineral products I have tried, black tourmaline does seem to help quite a bit, but I can only use it for a few hours at a time. The only really satisfactory solution I found is to remove oneself totally from the man-made energy environment (not a practical solution for most of us, except for short periods). At my last home, I used to sleep out back, one hundred feet away from the building and all sources of EMF. I placed a screen of RF shielding cloth over and around my sleeping cot. And that worked great! I slept like I hadn't done since I was a child.
Recently, due to circumstances totally beyond my control, I lost my home and I was obliged to move into an apartment where the electical and the electro-magnetic readings are truly frightening. The magnetic field here is about ten milligauss, while the elecric field fluctuates between one thousand and fifteen hundred millivolts! Anybody who knows what those numbers mean will think me crazy for being here. Believe me, I had no choice.
The black tourmaline and my man-made protective device are hopelessly inadequate in such a strong field. I couldn't sleep at all, I started suffering from constant tinnitus, and my head was in an appalling mess. I was in serious trouble.
In desperation, I tried an idea that had come to me recently (though I hesitate to explain just how that idea came to me). I went to a park near my place of work in Miami--Alice Wainright Park--and I picked up two palm-sized pieces of oolitic limestone. It turns out that most of eastern Florida consists of oolitic limestone, and there are places where one can find it on the surface. I have kept these pieces of oolitic limestone in my pockets ever since, and I sleep with them beside me at night. I keep them in sandwich bags because this rock is soft and crumbly, and it makes a mess. And the effects have been quite remarkable. I sleep soundly, with none of the awful dreams that I usually experience when sleeping in an EMF environment, and I wake up with my head in good shape.
During the daytime, I receive the same protection. Again, due to force of circumstances, I was recently obliged to start doing a telephone sales job in Miami, and by five o'clock each day by brain was in an awfully strained and exhausted state. But I needed that job in order to survive, in spite of the damage it was doing me. The day I started carrying the oolitic limestone in my pockets, the problems disappeared. I came out of work at five o'clock with my head as fresh as it had been at nine in the morning.
I realize that I must still move out of this apartment as soon as possible because the extreme electrical and electro-magnetic fields in here may well be killing off brain cells and doing damage to my DNA. But at least the oolitic limestone is protecting my conscious brain state so that I am fully functional for the time being, and I can sleep soundly as well.
I did have two setbacks in using this oolitic limestone. The first came with the start of the Olympic games in London. I do not own a television, and I do not normally watch television. When the Olympics started, my new landlady lent me a very small flat-screen television so I could watch the games. This television is so small, one has to sit within a couple of feet of it to see anything. I wouldn't normally dream of getting so close to such a device, but I thought the oolitic limestone would protect me. It did not, and I had an awful, sleepless night as a result. So, no more television for me. Whether I would have had a similar result from watching a normal sized television at a normal viewing distance, I do not know. And I do not intend to experiment.
Secondly, I did buy a large, one hundred-pound block of oolitic limestone from a local stone mason. It occurred to me that I might get even better results from having a lot of this rock all around my apartment. But having that much of the rock close by caused me to have a very strange and very unpleasant night--though the effects were quite different from those produced by EMF. The next night I put that big block out of the apartment. However, I did break of a ten-pound chunk, which I kept by my bed (in addition to the two one-pound pieces that I have on my bed). But even this proved too much, and I had another really bad night.
The rock must be creating some field effect of its own that does not agree with me--except in small quantities. I am still experimenting to find the optimum amount to use and the best methods of using it. I have found that having that ten-pound piece of the rock seven feet away from my bed does work well and gives me an even better night's sleep than the two one-pound pieces alone.
So, if anybody else is interested in trying oolitic limestone, be warned: Start out using very small quantities. And there may be things, such as television, that will cancel out any benefits.
How does it work? I do not know. Maybe the crystalline structure somehow modulates the environmental man-made energy field. I am not a scientist.
There are different varieties of oolitic limestone. I am using the pure, white variety, which consists of nothing but oolites. There are varieties that include quantities of sand or clay. These tend to be red, yellow or orange in color. I have no experience with these varieties. To verify that you do have oolitic limestone, break off a corner and look at a bit of clean, unweathered rock surface through a magnifying glass. The ooliites will stand out clearly.
You will not find this rock in a rock shop. But you may find it in a yard carrying rock and gravel for garden, ornamental and construction purposes. And if it is not available in other parts of the country, try contacting a rock yard in south Florida. They may ship it to you, for a price. You don't need very much, and the rock itself is very cheap.
I should be interested to hear if others benefit from this stuff as I have done. And I would like to hear if others find better ways of using it than I have. This rock hasn't cured me, of course. But it is helping to deal with the situation as nothing else has helped me before. And that is huge."Replies

Now I believe they were EMFs, but a very deadly sort. I'd like an update to know how you're doing & what else you've learned that helps you. GreenLLLLatYAH ooDOTco m. Please let me know.
Personally, I've spent all sorts of money & tried all sorts of remedies. Right now, I'm sitting next to 2 pyramids, a rock-salt lamp, a chi-generator, a prayer-book, under an emergency-blanket canopy w/ a loud fan blowing on it. I've found one trick that has worked for me, & I cannot explain why.
Get a radio. Set it to amplitude modulate. Set it to a white-noise hiss. When I hear an unexplainable signal, indicating some untracable source of EMFs, I listen to loud white noise, to stop it. My vacuum cleaner has worked every time, so far. I cannot wear earplugs. I have to hear this noise, loud, w/ both ears, until the signal goes away. I also use recorded sounds of waterfalls on youtube, but it has to be played very loud. About 15 minutes of this sound forces the signal to go away.
This keeps the headaches, prostate swelling, sore-throat, puffy swollen gums away."
