Protect yourself from Electromagnetic Fields

Protect yourself from Electromagnetic Fields! Is this modern world of ours, modern technology is cool, amazing and improves our lives to some degree. However, there is a dark side to this technology because of all the electromagnetic fields that they emit.

It’s important to learn how to protect yourself from Electromagnetic Fields. You may think that there are no problems with these electromagnetic fields, but there is and there is research to prove it. These electromagnetic fields are affecting our immune systems, endocrine systems and even our cellular systems, especially the health of our mitochondria.

The following article is all about learning how to Protect yourself from Electromagnetic Fields. This article comes from EMF Warriors. Here is the link to the article on the EMF Warrior Website. Protect yourself from Electromagnetic Fields

EMFs are everywhere but you can’t see, smell, hear, taste or touch them – the only way to determine if your home is safe for you and your children is to test. All EMF warriors who are serious about identifying nnEMFs in their environment have an EMF testing meter close at hand. To ensure you or your family are not being overexposed you need to test areas where you spend lots of time – your home, office and even your car. Testing is the most important thing you can do to protect yourself and your family. You can also hire testing equipment or engage a professional such as a building biologist to test your environment for you.

Common sources of nnEMFs in your home or office (excluding fake lights):

  • Bluetooth devices
  • Cordless phones
  • Computers and laptops
  • Digital alarm clocks
  • Electrical wiring
  • Microwave ovens
  • ‘Smart’ appliances
  • Smart meters
  • Smartphones and tablets
  • Solar panel invertors
  • TV screens
  • Wi-fi routers
  • Wireless modems
  • Wireless video game consoles
  • Wireless burglar alarms
  • Wireless baby monitors
  • Wireless printers

Some other hazards you might be exposed to that come from outside your home or office:

  • Telecommunication tower antennas and base stations
  • Radio and TV antennas
  • Electricity substations
  • High-voltage cables
  • Your neighbours’ smart meters.

The next step is to educate yourself. The best way is to join www.emfwarriors.com to access our free library and information on this website.

Here are some immediate actions everyone can take to improve their EMF hygiene

  1. Get into the habit of waking up and getting morning sun. Nothing beats the full spectrum rays coming from the sun. Expose your face and whole body if you can – about 30 minutes a day first thing around sunrise is optimal. If you can go to the beach to get the photons from the sun, electrons from the sand and minerals from the ocean. If you live away from the coast go for a bare foot walk in the park. No sunglasses.
  2. Determine if a smart meter has been installed in your meter box (usually without your permission or knowledge) If so ask your utility company to replace it.
  3. Replace all cordless phones in your home with wired versions – you could, alternatively, if you must buy a low-radiation DECT cordless phone to reduce the amount of nnEMFs travelling about.
  4. If you can’t use a landline to make a call use speaker mode on your smartphone holding the phone at least 30 cm away from your body. If you need privacy purchase a pair of air tube headsets.
  5. Use ethernet cables instead of wi-fi. Use an ethernet cable to connect all computers (includes baby monitors and tablets) to the internet, rather than a wireless router. Not everyone loves this option, as you can’t just stand up and walk around with your computer. But the extra benefit is that data transmission is much faster. Only turn on your wi-fi router when necessary, typically when visitors require access. Otherwise keep it unplugged from the electrical outlet.
  6. If you have to work with electronic devices at night, wear blue blocking glasses. (Some say you should also wear them during the day if you’re working indoors under artificial lights.) The glasses help reduces the intensity of the blue light getting into your eyes, and reduce the degree to which melatonin is suppressed in your system. You can also install f.lux on all computers; and you enable Night Shift mode on your iPhone if you have one.
  7. Build a sleep sanctuary and switch off everything in the bedroom or don’t have any devices in there to begin with. That means phones and tablets are turned off and in another room, no digital alarm clock or TV and all lights are off. Sleeping in total darkness promotes melatonin secretion in your body, and helps you rest and recover deeply.
  8. Most of all, whenever you can, take a break and get out in nature – get some sun, get some surf, and put your bare feet on the ground, whether that’s on weekends, on holidays or before work.

Oysters for Health!

One of the most nutritious and powerful foods are oysters. Oysters for health! Growing up near the coast in Virginia, I ate a lot of seafood, including oysters from the Chesapeake Bay. Back then, I had no idea how heathy oysters were. I do now. 

Oysters are known as an aphrodisiac in some cultures. Perhaps it’s the shape and texture that make them an aphrodisiac, but the real reason is the powerful nutritional value of oysters. Oysters are packed with healthy protein and fat, both of which are needed for hormonal and neurotransmitter production and assimilation. Oysters for health! Oysters contain the most zinc of any food and zinc is the most important mineral for the immune system. White blood cells need zinc to be produced and to work properly. Zinc is needed for a healthy prostate and many men need a boost in their prostate health. Zinc is also needed for healthy muscles and healthy bones. Besides zinc, oysters contain the following nutrients: vitamin D, vitamin B12, iron, copper, manganese, and selenium. Oysters also contain high levels of niacin, riboflavin, thiamin, vitamin C, phosphorus, potassium, and sodium. Finally, oysters are a huge source of beneficial cholesterol, antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids and water. Oysters even contain a small amount of vitamin A and vitamin B6. Oysters for health!

Another awesome benefit of zinc is its ability to keep testosterone levels at healthy levels. Men have much more testosterone than women, but women need that small amount of testosterone at healthy levels or women will see a decrease in muscle tone, energy and libido. Oysters for health!

The best way to obtain all the nutrition from oysters is to eat them raw, like I do. Squeeze some lime or lemon juice on the oysters and add some good cocktail sauce, preferably organic and homemade. If raw is not your style, roast, sauté, bake or grill the oysters. You will still obtain a huge benefit from the oysters if they are cooked. 

One last note of the benefit of oysters is their ability to absorb toxins and to assist in ushering the toxins out of your body. Your liver, which does most of your body’s detoxing through its phase 1 and phase 2 detoxification pathways, will love it if you start consuming some oysters. Oysters for health!

Here is some more fantastic information about oysters from the Weston A. Price foundation. Oysters

 

Chronic Disease

Chronic disease is everywhere in our society. What is going on? Has it always been this way? How many people do you know that are suffering from a chronic disease? Chronic disease is much larger than it use to be and it’s due to all the environmental toxins in the food, air, water, beauty products, skin care products, clothing and modern medicine, including pharmaceutical drugs and vaccines. Do you realize all the toxins in vaccines and the damage being done to babies and kids?
What is the answer to preventing and curing chronic disease? I can tell you that the answer is not modern medicine and all the drugs and surgery. The answer in preventing and curing chronic disease is five fold: primal eating, earthing, circadian rhythm, emotional health and some exercise.

Leptin and Melatonin

Leptin and Melatonin actually go hand in hand in the workings of the body and mind; and getting back with the circadian rhythm with nature will have your leptin and melatonin hormones working effectively.

Most folks are bathed in artificial lights too much and for too many hours after the sun sets. This throws off the production, timing and effectiveness of leptin and melatonin and a host of other hormones and neurotransmitters such as insulin, cortisol, dopamine and serotonin.

When you become leptin resistance, you will gain weight, be malnourished, have a unhealthy digestion system and have out of balance blood sugar, insulin and cortisol. Leptin is your satiety hormone that turns on when the body is full of food and nutrients so that you stop eating and let the body run the course of digestion, absorption, etc.  With healthy leptin sensitivity, the cascade of hormones, such as insulin and cortisol will be balanced.

With staying up way past dark in artificial lights, melatonin will be greatly affected and it will not be sufficiently produced. Insomnia sets in and major immune problems can come into play because melatonin is the body’s main anti-oxidant and the body needs sleep to repair and to rebuild.

Leptin and melatonin issues are a huge health factor in our society of fast living, processed foods and burning the light at both ends and denying the balance of the circadian rhythm of mother nature.

Environmental Toxins

Environmental toxins are everywhere and they are a huge factor in undermining the health of our society and the whole wide world. Environmental toxins are part of modern living, but at what cost to our health? Some of these environmental toxins are necessary in order to produce computers, cars and other machines, but many of these environmental toxins are unnecessary and should not be allowed in our food, water or air, such as fluoride and mercury, toxins in body care products and cosmetics, and the toxins in processed foods, such as aspartame. All these environmental toxins are contributing to the onslaught of neurological diseases, cancer, birth defects, respiratory problems and digestive diseases.

Here is an excellent article by the Weston A. Price Foundation on how to protect yourself from environmental toxins.  Below is the article and here is the link to the article at the Weston A. Price Foundation Website. http://www.westonaprice.org/environmental-toxins/

Survival in the modern world is becoming more and more difficult. Not only must we navigate the treacherous waters of processed foods (particularly difficult for parents as advertising for the worst food items is aimed directly at children) but also contend with the growing presence of industrial and agricultural toxins.

In this section we look at pesticides and industrial poisons as a cause of SARS–Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome–as well as the accumulation of mercury–one of the most toxic substances on the planet–in our biosphere: in the oceans, in fish, and in our own bodies. Levels of cadmium, lead, aluminum and arsenic are also rising. Add electromagnetic pollution, irradiation, ultrapasteurization, fluorescent lights and toxic additives like MSG and aspartame to the equation and we arrive at the explanation for rising rates of acute and degenerative disease.

How do we protect ourselves against this onslaught? Obviously, the first line of defense is to avoid these toxins as much as possible. That means choosing whole, unprocessed, organic or pasture-fed food, drinking and cooking with filtered water and avoiding the most flagrant sources of poison–saying no to thimerosal in vaccines, amalgam fillings and pesticides in our homes and gardens.

Most of us have less choice when it comes to where we live and work. Nevertheless, we should seek alternatives to jobs that expose us unnecessarily to pesticides and industrial toxins.

None of us can completely escape exposure to toxins–and neither could our ancestors. Smoke is filled with toxins–think of the primitive Gaelics that Weston Price described, living in smoke-filled cottages. Before electricity, smoke from lamps and fireplaces was a constant source of irritants and carcinogens.

Fortunately, many factors in traditional diets help the body deal with toxins. Last issue we read about how gelatin-rich broths helps the liver detoxify. In this section, Eric Davis describes the benefits of a protein-and fat-rich diet in supporting the body’s various defenses against poisons. Lacto-fermented foods provide additional support.

Pesticides work by interfering with vitamin A pathways. Therefore, adequate vitamin A is key to surviving in the modern world. That translates into plenty of butterfat, eggs and organ meats from grass-fed animals with a supplement of cod liver oil to provide an extra measure of protection. Fortunately, mercury accumulates in the protein portion of fish, not the oil, so cod liver oil is clean and safe.

Butter and Saturated Fat are Healthy

Butter and saturated fat are healthy! As a nutritionist and health coach, I am amazed at the low fat dogma that still persists in society. Once my clients see this dogma, they embrace the butter, coconut oil and eggs and feel much better.

The origins of butter go back thousands of years to when
our ancestors first started domesticating animals. In fact, the first
written reference to butter was found on a 4500- year old limestone tablet illustrating how butter was made. In India, ghee (clarified butter) has been used as a staple food, and as a symbol of purity, worthy of offering to the gods in religious ceremonies for more than 3000 years.
The Bible has references to butter as the product of milk
from the cow, and of Abraham setting butter and milk from a calf before
three angels who appeared to him on the plains of Mamre.
For millennia, people around the globe have prized butter
for its health benefits.
So how did butter become a villain in the quest for good
health?
At the turn of our century, heart disease in America was
rare. By 1960, it was our number one killer. Yet during the same time
period, butter consumption had decreased – from eighteen pounds per person per year, to four.
A researcher named Ancel Keys was the first to propose that
saturated fat and cholesterol in the diet were to blame for coronary
heart disease. Numerous subsequent studies costing hundreds of millions of dollars, have failed to conclusively back up this claim. Yet the notion that a healthy diet is one with minimal fat, particularly
saturated fat, has persisted. While Americans drastically reduced their
intake of natural animal fats like butter and meat, the processed food
industry, particularly the low-fat food industry, proliferated.
When the baby boomers were children, concerned mothers
began to replace butter with margarine. The margarine manufacturers told
them it was the healthier alternative and mothers believed them. In those
days no one asked, “Where is the science to prove it? I want to
know before I give this man-mad stuff to my children. After all we
humans have been eating butter for thousands of years.”
As a result, since the early 1970’s, Americans’ average saturated fat
intake has dropped considerably, while rates of obesity,
diabetes, and consequently, heart disease, have surged.
Reducing healthy sources of dietary fat has contributed to
a serious decline in the health of our bodies and minds. Those of us that speak out against the anti-fat establishment are still largely ignored.
Is Margarine Better than Butter? No! This is a tragic myth. Butter is a completely natural food essential to your health – especially when you eat organic. Please make the extra effort to obtain high-quality organic, raw butter. Margarines, on the other hand, are a processed food, created chemically from refined polyunsaturated oils. The process used to make these normally liquid oils into spreadable form is called hydrogenation. Margarine and similar hydrogenated or processed polyunsaturated oils are very detrimental to your health.

Butter is rich in the most easily absorbable form of Vitamin A, necessary for thyroid and adrenal health. Butter contains lauric acid, important in treating fungal infections and candida and butter has the following healing properties:

1. Contains lecithin, essential for cholesterol metabolism.
2. Contains anti-oxidants that protect against free radical damage.
3. Has anti-oxidants that protect against weakening arteries.
4. Is a great source of Vitamins E and K.
5. Is a very rich source of the vital mineral selenium.
6. Saturated fats in butter have strong anti-tumor and anti-cancer properties.
7. Butter contains conjugated linoleic acid, which is a potent anti-cancer agent, muscle builder, and immunity booster
8. Vitamin D found in butter is essential to absorption of calcium.
9. Protects against tooth decay.
10. Is your only source of an anti-stiffness factor, which protects against calcification of the joints.
10. Anti-stiffness factor in butter also prevents hardening of the arteries, cataracts, and calcification of the pineal gland.
11. Is a source of Activator X, which helps your body absorb minerals.
12. Is a source of iodine in a highly absorbable form.
13. May promote fertility in women.
14. Is a source of quick energy, and is not stored in our body’s adipose tissue.
15. Cholesterol found in butterfat is essential to children’s brain and nervous system development.
16. Contains Arachidonic Acid, which plays a role in brain function and is a vital component of cell membranes.
17. Protects against gastrointestinal infections

 

Raw butter is an incredible raw fat. It is a top notch healing food for our modern times. It soothes and lubricates nerves, muscles, and mucous membranes, cleanses and strengthens all the organs and glands, heals intestinal lesions, dissolves hardened plaque from eating bad fats, binds with and helps remove toxins and waste products from the body, lubricates bones and joints, cleanses, fuels, lubricates, protects, and rejuvenates cells, and aids in new cellular growth.

Grass fed, raw, Organic Butter is the Best as all the nutrients are available as pasteurization destroys the enzymes, acids and some of the vitamins and minerals. If you cannot obtain raw butter, the best choice is grass fed, organic pasteurized butter.

Liver Detoxification!

One big health fad going around is liver cleanses, but most of these liver cleanses are not effective. The proper term is liver detoxification as this is what the liver does. It detoxes the blood. The liver also creates bile, which helps in detoxification and it is needed to break down fat. The liver is more of a filter as it allows healthy nutrients to pass through and it stops toxins by breaking them down in the phase 1 and phase 2 detoxification systems, where the liver makes the toxins more water soluble so they can be excreted through the urine, bile or sweat.

The liver needs healthy fat and protein to effectively detox. Eggs are very important as are bone broth, avocados, grass fed butter and beef, cod liver oil and coconut oil.

More info about Liver Detoxification is in the video.

Alkaline and Acid

One of the big natural health deals today is the notion of alkalize or die. The issue of alkaline and acid in the body is a lot more dynamic than stating alkalize or die. The body needs both alkaline and acid foods and some of the systems of the body are alkaline and some are acidic. Watch the video below to get the real deal on the issue of alkaline and acid.

RAW EGG POWER!

 

Once deemed healthy and then not, the egg is back, even with approval from modern medicine, not that modern medicine ever influences me when it comes to nutrition.

Fried in coconut oil, scrambled, sunny side up, over easy, hard boiled, soft boiled, poached, omelet style, with avocado, on your head (a great moisturizer and conditioner), raw in fresh squeezed orange juice, raw in a fruit smoothie, raw in raw milk, raw on top of a cooked bowl of rice, millet or quinoa, raw in a glass (a la Rocky style), on your skin for sun burn, bug bites and rashes, in a casserole, deviled, or even green eggs and ham, eggs are back and eggs are a wonderful and healthy food.

The biggest myth is the cholesterol contained in eggs. Yes, eggs contain cholesterol, but cholesterol from raw or properly cooked food does not raise cholesterol levels and it does not cause heart disease. Your liver produces cholesterol every day and cholesterol is needed for cellular health, especially cellular membrane function, hormone production, brain function, vitamin D conversion and a strong and effective immune system. Most of us need some cholesterol food, found in eggs and other animal products, to aid the liver in effectively doing its task; plus, the best sources of Vitamins A, D, K, and B12 and the minerals zinc and iron are found in eggs and other animal fats.

Eggs are best raw if you want every ounce of nutrition it offers, but anyway you want them, they are a healthy part of a good diet. Packed with 60% fat and 40% protein, lecithin, iron, calcium, sulfur, phosphorus, Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, selenium, magnesium and many other nutrients; eggs are a powerhouse.

If eaten raw, eggs aid in cellular structure and permeability, hormone production and balance, toxin removal, energy production, increased immunity, increased brainpower and focus and increased libido. From my experience and observation, raw eggs are most effective in removing toxins from the body and improving brain function. The reason eggs are so powerful for brain health is choline, a key component of the neuro-transmitter acetylcholine that helps with memory and intuition. It also helps with skeletal muscle movements. The reason eggs are so effective in removing toxins is cholesterol, protein and sulfur. These three components are very important and needed by the liver to perform its detoxifying actions.

Of course, eggs that are from healthy farms that allow the chickens to have access to the great outdoors to eat grass and insects are far superior to the factory-farmed eggs. If you buy local eggs, take notice of how the yolk changes from a yellow color to an orange color as the summer approaches and the chickens can feast on grass and insects. Factory farm yolks are very pale yellow in comparison and do not change color as the chickens stay indoors year round and eat industrial chicken feed. Yay to the local egg and here in Denver we have lots of local farmers with healthy eggs from healthy chickens. Go local and support your local egg farmer at the various farmers markets and the many community-supported agriculture partnerships.
