How to keep well in a modern world

It’s no surprise that modern technology is playing havoc with our health and Electro Magnetic Frequencies (EMFs) from appliances such as microwaves, mobiles, smart TVs, smart meters and baby monitors are a silent, invisible source of stress on our bodies.

The EMFs from mobiles, for instance, may interfere with your body’s central nervous system and may disrupt sleep patterns, immune system function, hormone production (including your thyroid) and may even affect fertility.

The most recent research from The World Health Organisation was way back in 2011! At that time, WHO stated that the electromagnetic fields produced by mobile phones are possibly carcinogenic to humans – no wonder there’s not been any further research.

But with little research, we’re not all about to throw our 5 billion mobiles away, however, we can minimise our exposure to these health risks.

Here are some healthier ways to use your mobile phone:

  • Talk on speaker phone or use a wired headset
  • Don’t use Air Pods – the EMFs stream directly into your brain
  • Limit the number and length of calls and stop especially if/when your phone heats up
  • Use a wired landline where possible (not cordless phones – apparently worse than your mobile)
  • Switch your mobile to airplane mode when not in use
  • Never let a child under 5 put a mobile to their ear
  • Always switch to airplane mode for kids playing games on mobiles
  • Carry your phone in a bag (ie not in your pocket close to your body)
  • Text at a distance – ie hold the phone 30-40cm away from your body
  • Wait for your call to connect before putting it to your ear or putting your wired headset on
  • Know that when you’re driving more EMF surges are necessary when in motion so limit your calls
  • Don’t use your laptop on your lap (always on a desk/table)
  • If you use your phone as an alarm clock, switch it to airplane mode
  • Even better leave your mobile outside your bedroom and get an old-fashioned alarm clock
  • Always turn off your wi-fi at night

As well as minimising your EMF exposure, it’s important to know what vitamins, minerals and herbs can help keep you as healthy as possible in our modern world.

There are some great natural remedies that you can take to help protect yourself and your family. Top of the list is Vitamin C tonic and, even better, Vitamin C + Zinc. Both are available at Sydney Essential Health, 130 Edgecliff Road, Woollahra, NSW 2031.

What are your tips for minimising EMF exposure?
