When we are feeling particularly stressed, the most common factors to blame are a hectic lifestyle, work pressures, money troubles, a poor diet or relationship problems. These things are all major contributors to stress but there is also an invisible stress inducer that very few of us know about. This stressor can be just as bad for our health and can do untold damage. The name of this stressor is electro-magnetic frequency, also known as EMF.
EMF is not visible so we do not give EMF pollution much thought, although it can cause different health problems such as interference with our energy levels, stress, muscle tension, impaired immune function, fatigue, headaches, mood swings, feelings of jetlag, sleep deprivation and various other problems.
Electro-magnetic frequency has also been linked to more worrying diseases and disorders such as nervous conditions, breast cancer and other cancers, anxiety, depression, Alzheimer's and electrical sensitivity syndrome which is a bit like chronic fatigue syndrome.
The human body, as we all know, is a complex energy system in itself. There are many electrically stimulated functions in the brain and body every single second. This is why the EMF effects should not really be a surprise. When EMF interference occurs, the electrical conflict within the body becomes a problem and can lead to more problems.
The bad news is that in today's world of electronics it can be hard to completely remove stress caused by EMF from our lives. There are however a few things we can do to minimize it.
1. Never use electric blankets on your bed in cold weather. Use an extra blanket instead. Bathing your body in strong EMF for eight hours a night is potentially very harmful.
2. Try to have electronic devices such as clock radios away from your work desk, bed or any other place where you spend a lot of time.
3. Try not to use your cell phone too much. Even though the argument about whether cell phones are dangerous to your health or not has never been proven, cell phones do produce strong EMF and when you use a cell phone, it is only inches from your brain, so this does pose a certain risk.
When we are suffering from stress symptoms or a stress-related illness, EMF might not be the first thing that comes to mind but it should be investigated as a possible cause or at least one of the possible causes of the stress. EMF might be invisible but the risks it poses to our health are certainly very real.
