Is EMF Making You Sick?

If you’d like more energy, and you wonder about the effect of cell phones and other electronic devices on your family, this post is for you.

Electromagnetic pollution is now proven to cause mutation of cells and cancer. Many exposed to radiation from electronics report difficulties in focus and completing tasks, headaches, loss of energy, and feeling unwell.

Not too many know about this pollution, because it’s so new (only 20 years of massively increasing EMF pollution). But, more than 8,000 studies have now been published on how EMFs, or electromagnetic frequencies, are causing health problems.

In this article:

EMF Pollution Stories

People in the Western world are carrying more devices than imaginable even 10 years ago. And, the increase in EMF is happening far faster than safety studies can keep up.

Dirty electricity can cause cancer and diabetes. And, the World Health Organization, the FCC, and the FDA have also issued warnings and classified EMF as a carcinogen.

Recently, I spoke to several people whose health was destroyed, until they employed the protective measures I’ll discuss in this blog post.

Dr. Libby Darnell, in Chicago, talked about her high exposure to a diagnostic machine she began using up to 12 hours a day in her clinical practice, as well as her cell phone and lightbulbs in her home emitting “dirty electricity.”

She felt so unwell that she told her husband, also a doctor, “I wouldn’t be surprised if I start hearing voices soon.”

Addressing these issues turned her health around, and Dr. Darnell is now the mother of a young son. She was a guest on my podcast  (episodes 25, 26, and 27) and talked all about protecting yourself from EMFs.

Dr. Robyn Benson runs a clinic in Santa Fe, NM, and had to clear her home of EMF pollution. She loses steam when traveling because she’s so sensitive to chaotic frequencies in scanners, airplanes, and devices everywhere in crowded environments. (I’ll share tips for reducing your EMF exposure while traveling below.) 

Here in this post, I’ve shared a short video about what EMF is, and why spending a short time and a bit of money addressing it in your home and work environments might be the “small hinge that swings a big door” for your health, like it was for Dr. Darnell and Dr. Benson!

Low Effort, High Impact Habits

Are you drinking your quart of green smoothie every day and working out religiously? These are HIGH EFFORT, HIGH IMPACT habits.

What about LOW EFFORT, HIGH IMPACT habits?

Knowing what’s in this post may be key to improving life—and even saving it, for sensitive individuals—in an increasingly chaotic and toxic world. You might find that employing these tips literally “recharges your battery!”

Trying to sift through all the info and recommendations on the Internet can be totally overwhelming on this topic! 

But ignorance is not bliss, and arming yourself with basic knowledge could improve your health dramatically.

It’s absolutely critical to address EMFs if you have children in your home, because they have very sensitive, developing brains.

So, I want you to have my Top-5 EMF Action Steps Checklist for free. 

These are great things to do to start protecting yourself, your family, and your home from the harmful effects of chaotic, dirty electricity.

My #1 EMF Recommendation 

To protect yourself and those you love, I recommend grabbing Harmoni pendants for yourself and everyone in your family … and stock up to give them as gifts for your health-minded friends. 

Not only is it proven to work, it’s beautiful — I never want to take it off! 

Simply wear one, and you’ll gain peace of mind and protection 24/7. I feel more grounded, peaceful, and less stressed when I wear mine. 

Harmoni pendants work using the science of quantum physics, by taking disharmonious frequencies and turning them into beneficial frequencies. The pendant tunes to your energy field, establishing resonance between you and the pendant, shifting you out of fight-or-flight and into calm mode. 

A clinical trial found some seriously impressive results: wearing the Harmoni pendant for only 5-10 minutes reduced stress by 700%, increased energy by 530%, and improved overall markers of health by 138%!

It can also help release blockages in your energetic field caused by physical and emotional trauma; geopathic stress; heavy metals, toxins, mold, parasites, pesticides, and herbicides. By doing this your body’s natural ability to heal itself is restored. 

John and I wear our pendants everyday!

Another Top EMF Recommendation: Take Ultimate Minerals Daily 

I highly recommend taking GreenSmoothieGirl Ultimate Minerals every morning and night to mop up free radicals, and protect against cell damage, as radiation-protecting iodine and all minerals are represented. 

Important Notes

EMFs are much more harmful to children than adults! So be sure to take actions to protect your kids.

Never text in a parked car. You’ve become an antenna. And using Wi-Fi in your car makes you an antenna in a microwave!

If you are already dealing with a health issue (heavy metal toxic overload, or viral infection, or recovering from cancer, for instance), EMF overexposure can intensify and amplify other illnesses because the immune system is weakened.

Thank you to Dr. Libby Darnell who helped me with this research, after recovering her health that had been devastated by EMF. Check out her wonderful four-part blog series on EMF here!

EMF-Protection Tips While Traveling 

Tip 1: You are exposed to more radiation while you fly in the daytime, less when you fly at night. Every cell needs iodine. Iodine protects from EMFs really well, and antioxidants in general are great for that.

So, be sure to take GreenSmoothieGirl Ultimate Minerals when you travel, a double dose morning and night. 

It is simply concentrated fulvic and humic acids from the Earth, a full spectrum of all 90 minerals and trace minerals (including iodine) from ancient plant deposits. We don’t take synthetic isolates or minerals, and we also steer clear of supplements made from rocks and chalk that the body doesn’t metabolize well.

Tip 2: Opt out of the scanners at the airport. TSA does not want a baby going anywhere near the scanner, so why do they tell you that you are safe? They said the X-Ray machines were safe, and they weren’t. For 10 years now, TSA has told us these new ones are safe, but let’s not be guinea pigs.

New published research shows that the radioactive output of the TSA scanners is significant, and it’s the cumulative effect that is the problem. So if you travel a lot, opt out of the scanner, and they’ll give you a quick pat down instead.

Did you know you can opt-out of TSA scanners when you travel? Doing so protects you from the radioactive output these machines have.

Tip 3: When you’re flying, take your shoes off in your seat, if you have rubber soled shoes. Then you will discharge EMF onto the floor. After you travel, when you get to your hotel, walk on the grass or dirt barefoot for 5 minutes and now you’re good to go—you’ve discharged!

    HI. We are looking at purchasing a home that has a solar farm behind it. I can’t seem to find any information on these. Do you know if they emit emfs?

    1. Rose Butler GSG says:

      Hi Janet, I have not been able to find any information on "solar farms" and EMF’s. Perhaps your real estate agent has some connections with environmental specialists in your area! Good Luck.

  2. Johnathan McLaughlin says:

    We just purchased some xzubi packs from you and I had a question that I couldn’t find answers to in any of the FAQs about the product. Can the xzubi be bent? As in wrapped around something? I would like to put one on my LG HBS-750 bluetooth headset that hangs around my neck. But there are no flat surfaces on it. I would have to wrap it around the round body of the device. Is that acceptable, or would bending it break something inside of it and cause it to not work. Thanks for your response!

  3. Lorna says:

    I wanted to find out more about this point – CFLs emit 70% mercury into the environment within first 3 days after installing.
    I’ve looked through the references and I can’t link it to a study.

    Hi Robyn,
    I’m a single mom and work a lot online and on my phone, and want to protect my daughter and myself as much as possible. However I am on a very low budget right now and this is pricey for me. Are there any studies or facts that explain/ show that these legitimately protect. I don’t want to get something that would increase anything, and I can’t afford to buy something that isn’t really good. I am so thankful for you and I love how safe and lovingly you share what you have learned with us! Thank you! *I also had one more question. I don’t understand how that necklace works either, since I though stainless steel is metal? I am not provoking I am truly thankful for you, and really looking into this because I am on a low budget and want to be safe!

    1. Cali Rose says:

      Hi Skye. Did you ever receive a reply? I have that same question. I’m also wondering how it’s activated. Did you ever buy it and if so what do you think about it?
