EMF Remedies: Q&A
Though the doctor diagnosed my shingles in 2005, during the same month further rashes occurred on my chest, and he said it was something else, then that it was more of the shingles. However I now believe that my electrical system was short-circuited after hurricane Katrina during our electrical power outage when my westside neighbor connected THREE cables into my home (refrigerator, webtv, and one lne running through and over to my eastside neighbor to connect their refrigerator); the extreme pain and forward bending of my spine (developing scoliosos) started then and has continued becoming steadily worse even with good diet.
I have studied Lucinda Grant's book, Electricity Sensitivity Handbook, and followed her outline to help my illness including wearng protective diodes and fabrics (while emailing) and walking barefoot on outdoor grass to connect with the earth's natural harmony and electrical balance. Author Phyllis Galde (Crystal Healng, good book) tells how great chaos would occur if that which holds the universe together would be disrupted- and this seems to be what happened to my electrical system durng the power outage and connection of cables to my neighbor's generator. (EEKG idea)
I have now begun using crystals for healing, wearing a small one around my neck, (and often holdng a large unpolished crystal at times) using prayer and programming the crystals to heal. Have you any suggestions?
Do you think that the electrical cables increased or decreased the electricity in my body system, or mainly caused great chaos which beught about the damage to my nerves and electrical system?
In accessing the attached Forward, you will find most of the informaton to be most interestng, including the footnotes which mention HAARP and its doings. Phyllis Galde states that an aura around the earth exists and that all should have positive and healing thoughts so that this aura all around the earth will protect and heal the earth from its pollutants.
Wishing you continued good health.

One of the cure lesser known cure for EMF sensitivity I used is called grounding. As you notice, computers, and other electrical devices require grounding from preventing the electronic components against electrical shock, but also protects against damages of electrical components. There are a couple of ways to do this grounding. Putting your feet barefooted firmly on a semi wet dirt for an hour or two. If not possible a a shoe has to be electrically conductive so that the body becomes grounded. A more radical one for people with excessive EMF sensitivity is to get a long metal pole separate from other electrical devices and is connected to the feet during sleep. The body then becomes grounded. I will not use the household grounding devices connected to prevent electrical shock.
The other issue is low magnesium prevents the body from protecting itself against EMF sensitivity as they are neuroprotective. Taking about 10 drops of magnesium chloride three times a day for a week should stop the EMF issue also. If not happy a metal chelator, such as green tea, or white tea can also be taken to rid of excess free iron from the body, and perhaps some vitamin C also. N Acetyl Cysteine rids of mercury maybe helpful, as is malic acid from eating green apples is also a well known aluminum chelator.
Building a copper wire mesh around the house also protects against EMF. The copper wire mesh is on the wall hwere EMF signals come. There is also an EMF meter sold over the internet to identify where they come from. For one thing, your LCD screen is a strong EMF emitter.
11/04/2010: G. replies: "Dear Ted,
Thank you again for your informative reply! I have several long metal poles, but do not know the type metal they are; does it matter what kind of metal they are? (They are hollow poles once used for hanging drapes or curtains, and may be too long to connect to my feet, as the bed is against a wall. What length is best or necessary?
Also, how is the pole connected to the feet, with tape? and where does one place its other end? (Or does it reach towards the ceiling from the feet?) In my bedroom I sleep with my feet towards the north; if I have to sleep on the sofa in the living room, my feet are towards the south, but often sleep well with feet towards either direction.
(I know that in burials some religions require the body to face the east (for proper resurrection ).
I have used treated fabrics from LessEMF (online) to shield my feet and torso when sending emails or doing research online, and they have other shielding products- even paint. Since my injury has already occurred, (and may be continued by being near these EMFs, is there anything else which may help heal the already -existing damage besides quartz crystals and such prayerful means?
(I know quartz crystals magnify and think that this past night the crystals have helped, for just before I awakened I had a dream which was very harmonious being music and happiness, and I felt that it was indeed bringing my body's electrical chaos into a more harmonious health. (Of course I continue a strict form of diet with brewer's yeast, wheat germ, oatmeal added to whatever I am eating, and have good digeston with the ox bile from Carleson Labs. Thank you for telling of green apples; I try to have the less sweet fruit, even though I grow Haden mangos.
I must prace this musical dream, because before sleep I recalled how Jan Wolanek, the director of numerous orchestras, and a child prodigy, told me of his father. His father was a court musician to Queen Victoria, and had been accepted by the Boston Symphony Orchestra in the USA; his friends had planned a celebration for him before his ship left London for America, and they enjoyed themselves so much that he missed his ship's departure the next morning.
So they discussed this with Queen Victoria, and she said that she knew the Impressario of the Opera in Krakow in Poland (he was Polish, and evidently they thought that he would be returning there). He joined the orchestra, met his future wife, (Jan's mother), and thus Jan was born (graduated from U. of Vienna studying violin with Sevcik, practiced eight hours a day, concertized, and then came to the USA where he was the concertmaster for the Buffalo (NY) Philharmonic, married, conducted five orchestras in Canada and the USA, was divorced, and later came to Fort Lauderdale where I met him and resumed violin lessons of long ago.
I tell of this because I think the crystals joined in, or tuned in on my thoughts- which it is said crystals do- so one must keep one's thoughts kind and healthful."

The hollow poles are grounded or is placed on a ground that goes deep into the earth. A copper wire is then connected. The pole doesn't connect to you directly.
Any electroconductive poles, quite often of non rusting poles are ideal in the long term, such as copper or aluminum is what I used as they are of non corrosion. However, a metal steel is fine too, but if kept too long, they become rusting and non conductive. However, the idea is not long term to be used for years. The idea is to test whether it works or not. If they DO WORK, then I can always fine a better pole or rods to put into the ground. For example, in general poles should be deep enough for it to work. Ideally it should be around 5 foot as the bare minimum. I personally prefer 8 foot to 10 foot or more., but for practical purposes 5 feet is needed to see how well it works, and it can be further improved by making them more deeper. Then a copper wires is then connected and lead into the house and perhaps connected to the feet or the body so the body can be grounded. Even before making anything more elaborate it is best to see whether grounding works for you or not.
As for the general theory of how it works, whenever the body has good grounding, the free radicals in the body is eliminated through grounding, instead of stealing the electrons from your own healthy cells (leading to sickness and cancer), the body can now access the electrons needed from the ground wires and hence no longer sensitive to EMF radiation, which creates free radicals.
As to the placement or sleep position whether the head should face north or south. The effect are similar, but from my own experiments, it would be either North or South is fine. Both seems to do the job equally. Initial research appears to be slightly better facing South, but North is also just as good. I really need to repeat this experiment again. The initial experiment I did with magnetic poles on bean sprout, while it was conclusively determined that North magnetic fields is better then South, I have some suspicion that the magnetic poles was labeled wrong. However, I have no proof of that until I do another experiment. To make sure the magnetic polarity is not mislabeled is simple: I just need a commercial magnets, a couple will do, and verify that the poles were properly labeled.
In other magnet sites, they say North is better. The initial experiments I have tested did verify that North is better in a couple of experiments I did a couple of years ago using the bean sprouts. However, at the time I wasn't able to obtain a standard magnets to positively confirm that polarity was correct unless I have the proper reference magnets verified from more then one magnets just to be absolutely sure.
The worse magnet fields is a mix of magnet fields is worse. A Hashimoto disease tend across the body rather then along the body in parallel. Shingles tend to occur the same, going lengthwise across the the waist of the person. This means bacteria and fungus grows across human electrical fields. Hence, if human electrical fields travel more efficiently, then this would reduce bacteria and fungus in a person.
LIghtning actually goes from ground to sky, rather then the other way around as the ground has excess electrons, which provides the electrons needed to neutralize the electron stealing free radicals.
In sun gazing, one of the tactics used by sun gazers is to walk barefooted, so that the body becomes grounded. I believe grounding is one of the keys that the body needs to neutralize the free radicals. I humans are a bioelectric entity, then grounding is also required, as in all other electronic and electrical equipment do indeed requires grounding too.
2 YEARS OF INTENSE EMF SUFFERING, CAN TED HELP?
07/11/2010: Anonymous from Anon, Anon: "I am a 27 year old sufferer of EMF/EMR symptoms. I while in college had a professor who after many many years of suffering was driven to the point of insanity. She asked me to her home to see if I felt the effects of her illness as I was one to believe her story. I while in the house would become foggy headed and dizzy. Her home was a menagerie of electronics all running at the same time. Some were gimmicks while most were LCD tv's etc. I at the time had no idea these were a factor.
Two years later, I like my professor had a home filled with electronic devices. I installed a wireless router and got a laptop. I began to quickly notice that my testicles would begin to hurt, my scortum would draw up and I began to suffer erectile dysfunction. I suffer no medical ailments and refuse to take medication for the fact they are ANTI...biotic. I stick to probiotics, colloidal silver and all natural cures. I suffered this for over a year as when I even removed the laptop out of the equation and stopped using it...my problems persisted. It was not until an entire year later after much prayer time that I was guided to the router. When I would go on extended trips during the summer camping my system would return to normal, my testicles would not hurt, my scrotum would return to a normal position (not elevated) and I would begin to be able to think clearly again and my sexual function would return. When I returned home my symptoms would begin again. I knew that at this point by removing the router the problem would be better. I did so and while my problems improved they did not entirely go away. I now find I am acutely sensitive to computers, computer monitors, tv's, fluorescent lighting as well as almost anything else that is electronic. For me, cellular phones are the very worst. I now sit in a house that rarely if ever has a tv or a computer turned on and most everything is unplugged. This is the only relief I find.
I have reached the point to where after removing the wireless router my testicles do not hurt, my scrotum is not drawn up near my body, however, now when around things emitting emf the vein in my left leg near my buttocks begins to swell and hurt especially when I am seated. I also feel soreness in the tops of my legs above the knee cap. This makes it nearly impossible for me to go shopping as some stores are far worse for me than others. I cannot work because I am unable to be around office electronics and when I have mentioned this to medical staff, they either claim I am insane or tell me they are at a loss for words or a solution. This has caused me to also suffer from weak erections -- I believe it has either been due to the swelling of veins from the emf or because emf lowers my testosterone levels.
I have been taking Omega 3, Propolis, Vit C, Potassium, Magnesium, Milk Thistle, 7-Keto, L-Lipoic Acid, Olive Leaf, Oil of Oregano (capsules),
I am aware of the fact that most sufferers have a high level of heavy metals in their body...Also, they tend to have a high level of mercury in their body... I believe I need some sort of chelating method.
I am in need of help so that I at my youthful age will not have to suffer for years (2 years I have suffered thus far) as my professor has. Please, I beg of you, if there is any solution you have been able to find, please provide me the information. I am completely willing to change my diet in any way possible, I am willing to incorporate more herbs/natural cures if it means finding healing. I have already removed from my diet white flour, white sugar, msg and have tried to maintain a spotless home as to not have any mold/fungus present.
Please, help me."
01/16/2011: Ryan from Chicago, Il, Usa replies: "I've also had issues with EMF, which reduces melatonin levels and, in my opinion, is the most underrated cause of heath problems.
EMF exposure has been linked to cancer, depression, migraines, immune deficiency, inflammation, ulcers, gastrointestinal disorder, free radicals, blood disorder, yeast, arthritis, osteoporosis, oxidative stress, PMS, gallstones, degenerative disease, Alzheimer's, Lou Gehrig's, Non-Hodgkin's, Parkinson's, multiple sclerosis, lymphoma, melanoma, leukemia, fibromyalgia, etc. Melatonin compromise also affects serotonin, insulin, glucose, testosterone, estrogen, adrenaline, etc. Also, like you said, more sensitive individuals have higher levels of heavy metals in their system, including mercury.
I had my metal fillings (all are at least 40% mercury) removed, and it resulted in a huge improvement. I recommend a book by Dr. Mark Hyman (who has been featured in PBS specials) "The UltraMind Solution".
We all know mercury is toxic, but in the book, Dr. Hyman makes the point: "Mercury is the second-most toxic substance known to human biology after plutonium". More toxic than lead, and recalls for products with lead are in the news all the time. And these metal fillings (amalgams) are in our mouth 24X7.
Then I looked at the ADA's own website, that said how toxic it is, and the special care dentists had to take when removing them, and that they constantly emits mercury vapors. Then they say, to avoid getting sued, that removal is not needed.
The link titled "Best Management Practices for Amalgam Waste" is very interesting. There are many other fillings in use nowadays, like glass and resin (plastic) composites that are much better:
The ADA web site is what really pushed me to get them removed.
Here's is a site that Dr. Hyman recommends for natural dentists that will remove metal fillings: www.iaomt.org/patients/search.aspx
Also, I purchased an EMF meter online, which showed the high levels of EMF from my computer, TV's, washer/dryer, forced air heater, refrigerator, microwave, and my car.
From my experience, those with the biggest EMF issues are those with high metal in their system and a constant (even low) exposure to EMF. Constant exposures would be when you sleep, work, and drive.
The EMF meter helped me to see where to place my bed with my head being far away and avoiding being in-line with the fan of the forced air heater, moving the reading lamp and electric alarm clock away from my head (actually into the hallway), and removing all close florescent lighting. This made a big difference for me, as did getting a natural bed, such as wool or latex (the modern unnatural foam of any kind has bad vibrations not conducive to sleep).
I work with computers all day, so I turned off my wireless, moved the laptop further away, and just use a wired mouse, keyboard, and LCD monitor (much less EMF than the old tub monitors or having the laptop in front).
The EMF reader really helped me when I was looking for a car (many Fords are low in EMF), by testing the area by the driver's feet and middle console.
I would also recommend a shower filter (to remove chlorine), and a reverse-osmosis water filter (which removes heavy metals). You also may want to get a test for radon in your home.
Magnesium supplements and eating healthy (fruits, vegetables, chicken & fish) also helped me. Fruits and vegetables result in a higher body oxygen level (PH above 7.0), where diseases cannot live.
Doing any of the above will probably help. But again, I saw the most benefit having my dental fillings removed, moving my bed further away from the forced air heater, moving my computer further away, and finding a low EMF vehicle. What's most important is to lower the EMF exposure and remove the mercury, I. E. remove the causes (poisons)."

Many have printed out this shield and have applied it to their pillow, bed sheets, just about everywhere. I laminated a sheet and use it on my food as a means to charge my food. This works, it acts like a reverse prism converting radio signals, microwave signals into full light. The full research is featured on their website. This really does work and I covered my pillow case by printing this image on to transfer iron-ons that I got from a craft store known as Michaels. Also please see vibesup. Com, they sell a mat that also works. Carbon based paint works as well to block terahertz frequencies that are the bridge between infrared and microwave. Sometimes these are the actual frequencies that cause harm."
03/09/2012: Lionsden333 from San Jose, Ca replies: "Freeshield.com - apply the free shield to iron-on transfers and completely cover bed sheets and pillow cases. Please visit this non-profit website to view all of the research pertaining to free shield and to download the free emf blocking shield. It really does work, the more you apply the image the better the coverage. Place it inside your clothing and line your outdoor jacket."

07/19/2010: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "Although I have a case of emf sensitivity resolved by removing radio and bedsprings, I have found cellular towers, mobile phone routers and wifi to have an effect. Putting copper wire mesh on walls is helpful and certain students who do chem labs can end up emf sensitive. Also in some cases,unexpected symptoms came from radon gases in house and heavy metal as in lead and copper present in old plumbing pipes. Problem was resolved after changing old pipes and faucets plus the old shower head. Chelating oral EDTA by taking baking soda one half teaspoon twice a day also remove them and magnesium supplements preferably Magnesium chloride were helpful against radiation sensitivity.
