We may not be able to see it but we are surrounded by radiation – both natural and man-made. Radio waves, microwaves, gamma rays… It is an electromagnetic world we live in. If we could see or hear the whole frequency range, it’d be a much noisier world.
What many people may not know or remember is that we too are electromagnetic.
Science 101: changing electrical fields produce magnetic fields and changing magnetic fields produce electrical fields.
Electrical and magnetic fields are interrelated and electromagnetism is intrinsically part of nature.
It’s not only our heart that is electrical. Biological processes are based on chemical reactions, which produce electrical fields. Digestion. Brain activities. Nerve signals.
The question is not whether or not electromagnetic fields can cause biological responses. The debate is about what level is safe and what are the longterm effects of regular and chronic exposure.
Research is stacking up on both sides of the issue and it can be confusing for the layperson.
Humans have always been exposed to radiation. But what about now, when our world is increasingly outfitted with electronics and other convenient and innovative measures? When those using them are getting younger? And when stress is diminishing well-being and the body’s natural ability to adjust and heal?
Many people may be surprised by the language found in manuals that come with electronic devices. With the how-to-use getting more intuitive, people are less likely to read the manual, never mind the fine print. When was the last time you read the manufacturer’s warning about your iPhone or iPad?
We all love convenience. We live in a digital 24/7 connected world. Most people can’t live without their smartphones and laptops. It’s not about throwing out the baby with the bathwater. We don’t have to live without them. We can however learn more about how to live with them safely. Remember kids are more sensitive so restricting their exposure is key.
Simple Tips to Minimize the Impact of Living in Electrosmog
1 Talk Less
Minimize your talktime on the mobile and DECT phones. These are both sources of microwave radiation. Use a (non WIFI) headset or earphones.
2 Go Wired
Being wired is a good thing. Hardline your computer instead of using a wireless router. Use wired keyboards and mouse.
3 Off It
Turn off and unplug electrical devices as much as possible. Modems. Routers. Toasters. Dehumidifiers.
Good for the environment and good for you. Even when off, plugged-in appliances run on low-level voltage. For modems, even when your WIFI devices are off, the field is still active.
This is ultra important at night, when the body is relaxed (and susceptible) and rejuvenating.
4 Go Far
Create an electrical-free zone. If you must have electronics in the bedroom, put them 6 feet plus away from you. Be sure to remove anything head level. Think clock radios and cell phones. If you must use your mobile as an alarm, put it on airplane mode.
Keep electronics away from the body. Take that cell phone from your pocket. Keep the laptop off your lap. Invest in a separate keyboard instead of using the laptop’s.
Metals are conductors. Spring coils in mattresses act like an antenna and generate an electrical field, which can be disruptive to sleep and the body’s rejuvenation processes at night.
6 Neutralize it
The marketplace is full of neutralizers, from crystals to cell phone shields. It can get confusing what works and what’s a gimmick. Neutralizing EMF radiation is by far the best option. The other tips can only minimize, not eliminate, your exposure. They don’t help with the negative natural radiation and they don’t protect against your neighbour’s wifi or the radiation from cell towers near your house or in your office building.

I had my house assessed by Nixon Neo of EMF-Safety. The most surprising thing? The high level of ground radiation. Singapore seems to have high gamma readings, ranging from 0.2 to 0.45. Her bedroom (the most important place to neutralize EMF radiation) is now outfitted with three Geo-Safe-E® and sleep has been great. The biggest noticeable difference? Since having the Geo-Safe-E®, her dogs are more settled. Animals are highly sensitive to EMF.
The topic of EMF radiation is controversial and can be daunting. The Radiation + You talk is aimed at providing information in a user-friendly manner so people can make appropriate adjustments to enjoy 21st century convenience in a safe way. The motto is Avoid, Reduce, and Neutralise.
