What are the symptoms of EMF Stress?
Science has shown that exposure to electromagnetic radiation puts great stress on the immune system, wearing it down steadily over time. Studies have also shown that radiation breaks DNA strands, creates stress hormones, and causes cellular malfunctioning. There is a wide range of symptoms people experience from being exposed to it, depending on each body’s genetic vulnerabilities.
Some of the more common symptoms include:
- Chronic Colds & Flu's
- Digestive Disorders
- Sleep Disturbances ( even night terrors )
- Memory Loss/Brain-fog
The Term EMF Stress gets thrown around quite often today. But do we really understand what it is? Or what it does to us? How can we protect our self from the negative effects that some of them have on our physical and mental health?
What are electromagnetic fields?
Electric fields are created by differences in voltage: the higher the voltage, the stronger will be the resultant field.
Magnetic fields are created when electric current flows: the greater the current, the stronger the magnetic field.
An electric field will exist even when there is no current flowing. If current does flow, the strength of the magnetic field will vary with power consumption but the electric field strength will be constant.
Natural sources of electromagnetic fields
Electromagnetic fields are present everywhere in our environment but are invisible to the human eye. Electric fields are produced by the local build-up of electric charges in the atmosphere associated with thunderstorms. The earth's magnetic field causes a compass needle to orient in a North-South direction and is used by birds and fish for navigation.
Human-made sources of electromagnetic fields
Besides natural sources the electromagnetic spectrum also includes fields generated by human-made sources: X-rays are employed to diagnose a broken limb after a sport accident. The electricity that comes out of every power socket has associated low frequency electromagnetic fields. And various kinds of higher frequency radio waves are used to transmit information – whether via TV antennas, radio stations or mobile phone base stations.
(Extract from Electromagnetic fields published by the WHO Regional Office for Europe in 1999 (Local authorities, health and environment briefing pamphlet series; 32).
So basically in our world everything has its own energy field.
Electromagnetic radiation is the energy projected from the EMF's. Just as there are good fats and bad fats for our body and good sugars and bad sugars for our body, so there are good/safe EMF’s and bad/harmful EMF’s for our body. In today's world we all live in a virtual sea of man made electromagnetic radiation—we can’t escape it. We’re bombarded daily with cell phone radiation, smart meter radiation, and WiFi radiation from our computers and other wireless devices. We are also in danger of cell tower health risks, as these towers virtually surround us, wherever we are. Some of us are further susceptible to the negative impacts of power lines health risks, if we happen to live near them. In addition, there are low frequency electromagnetic fields (EMFs) that constantly envelop us coming from our home electricity and all of our appliances.
Is Electromagnetic Radiation Safe?
Most people assume that all this electromagnetic radiation is safe for us. Younger generations have literally grown up in it and can’t remember a time when they weren’t surrounded by it. It “feels” safe. We can’t see the radiation and it’s everywhere—so the assumption is that it must be okay for us.
And besides, aren’t there research studies that have concluded that cell phones and WiFi are safe—or at least claim there is no evidence that they are unsafe? The answer is yes, there are those studies. However, if you locate the funding source for most of them, you’ll find that the corporations that funded them were the very companies who produce cell phones and wireless devices. And, very importantly, there now exists an overwhelming abundance of independent, peer-reviewed studies from all over the world that have conclusively linked electromagnetic radiation with a wide variety of adverse health effects and serious diseases.

EMF Stress is a condition that is becoming increasingly common as time goes on and is also known as “electromagnetic sensitivity” or “electro-sensitivity”. People with this condition find it difficult to be around any wireless or electronic device at all. They can’t use cell phones or wireless devices without feeling a headache or other body disturbances, and they feel sick when they’re in a field of WiFi. Some are even noticeably sensitive to the electrical wiring in their homes. They have had to dramatically alter their lifestyles to avoid electricity. There are actually communities that have been set up in different parts of the world for people who can’t live at all in today’s world, where nothing emitting electromagnetic fields is allowed so they may be able to live comfortably. Many people with electromagnetic sensitivity have been helped to live normal lives again when they discover EMF Protection.
Children and Electromagnetic Radiation Risks
Children are especially sensitive to the effects of electromagnetic radiation. This is because their nervous systems and immune systems are still developing, making them even more vulnerable to electromagnetic fields than adults are. Studies on children and cell phone radiation are especially alarming. There are many experts, scientists and doctors who are issuing warnings in particular about the WiFi radiation exposure children are currently experiencing in schools. Increasing numbers of children are reporting chronic headaches, digestive disorders and sleep disturbances that have been linked to EMFs. Scientists are also connecting ADHD, asthma and autism with exposure to electromagnetic radiation.
Perhaps you’re dealing with some of the symptoms that people commonly experience with exposure to electromagnetic fields. But even if you’re not, you may not want to take chances with problems that may show up down the road. And if you have children, you may be especially concerned. Since there’s no way to easily avoid electromagnetic radiation in today’s world, the only sane solution is getting EMF protection.
