EMF precaution and is it really a big deal?
Not too long ago I was talking to my brother in England on my mobile and my ear started to get really hot and tingly, I felt a little dizzy too and then I remembered my post a while back about EMF and I instantly took the phone away from my ear. So I just wanted to write an updated post on it.
As you know we are surrounded every day by electromagnetic fields like your hairdryer, mobile, household appliances, laptops, phone lines, radars etc and yes we are exposed to low levels of EMFs every day. But is it a big deal? The ongoing studies from the WHO and other health organisations say that low levels are safe, but they do advise you to try to limit your exposure when you can.
Here is a small list of EMF exposure.
Sensitivity to EMFs include:
- Dizziness and vertigo
- Brain fog
- Hormone imbalances
And here a some of the things you can do to limit your exposure.
- Keep devices away from your body, head and ear
- Text instead (my favourite)
- Use Handsfree or Speaker
- Limit the length of your call
- Only use the phone when it’s a strong signal
- Turn appliances off until needed
- Keep your phone and laptop off when you go to bed
- Try not to use your phone in the car… the metal casing magnifies the radiation.
I’ve been a bit slack recently with my phone use in bed, speaking on my mobile pressed against my ear and typing on my Mac whilst it’s warming my lap and maybe it’s the reason I haven’t been sleeping so well, so back to what I preach and happier night sleeps!
