EMFs (Electro-Magnetic Fields)
All life forms on the planet are electrical in nature and have evolved with the natural electric, magnetic and electro-magnetic field radiations from the earth, sun and the cosmos. This natural balance has significantly changed in the last 100 years since the invention and use of man made electricity, electronics and the use of radio wave technology. The exposure to these unnatural technical fields has steadily increased exponentially.
There are many studies that have shown detrimental effects from our man made EMFs. Thousands of case studies from Building Biologists in the US and Europe have also shown the improvement of sleep issues and health conditions by reducing and eliminating many of these technical fields within dwellings. There are many dynamics with the various types of fields and how they affect our biology, however one of the main issues is interference with intercellular communication. Our cells, tissues, and organs talk to one another through weak electrical pulses and semi-conductive tissues. There are a number of studies demonstrating that certain man-made technical fields at certain frequencies and signal strengths among other factors interfere with our cell’s efficiency in communicating. This interference leads to the cell's inability to have effective chemical exchanges to receive nutrients and influences the build up of toxins within the cells and tissues. This then leads to a cascade of health effects. For many, the health effects take years to show up, the most serious forms being Leukemia, tumors and other forms of cancer. However many of the neurological disorders such as ADD, ADHD, MS, Epilepsy, Parkinson’s, Autism, Alzheimer's are showing links to EMF exposures. EMFs are also linked to impaired immunity, hormonal imbalances, dizziness, nausea, high blood pressure, chronic fatigue, allergies, convulsions, insomnia, crib death, miscarriages, depression, memory loss and suicides.
Baby’s and children’s bodies in a mode of rapid development, are much more sensitive to these fields. The goal of our work with EMFs is to help clients and their children benefit from the natural rhythms of the Mother Earth by eliminating or reducing the detrimental influences.
To create the optimal environment for the healthy development of physical, cognitive, socio-emotional and spiritual well being, we recommend having fields in your environment measured and potentially reduced to recommended levels. The methods and biological standards for measuring and reducing these fields are from the study of Building Biology. EMFs are one of the focuses of this holistic science that studies the built environment’s impact on health and well being.

Some of the main issues with man made radiations within dwellings are Low Frequency Fields from building wiring, electronics and appliances as well as High Frequency radiation from wireless technologies such as Wi-Fi, cell phones, PDAs, cordless phones, wireless lighting, security and stereo systems.
Geopathic Stress is another type of electromagnetic radiation that we are concerned with. This type of radiation is from anomalies in the earth's natural magnetic field. Click here to learn more on Geopathic Stress.
