Symptoms of Electromagnetic Radiation Sensitivity and How to Avoid It

by the editorial team and Sophia Ruan Gushée

 

By now, you probably know of certain exposures—like nuts, perfume, dairy, or even motion sickness—that trigger discomfort. Naturally, you avoid these triggers to avoid uncomfortable symptoms.

Most people don't consider electromagnetic fields (EMFs), which may compromise some people's wellbeing. EMFs may contribute to a set of symptoms that some countries, including Sweden, recognize as a disability.

Reproductive health expert from Yale Medical School discusses how toxic exposures may influence our reproductive health and children

 

I remember clearly the first time I came across the reality that our consumer products expose us to toxic exposures--which include chemicals, heavy metals, and electromagnetic fields. It was ten years ago, when my first born was just a few weeks old.

Tips to buy school materials that minimize toxic chemicals

children Sep 08, 2017
 

It was so nice selecting school supplies with my daughter yesterday. It prompted me to look up safer plastics (numbered 1, 2, 4, and 5). Whenever possible, this is what we chose.

And she didn't seem to mind the dialogue that ensued about why we're being mindful of which plastics and other materials we considered. Generally, children embrace the key concerns pretty easily, which revolve around the health of our planet, wildlife and other animals, and human health. My experience is...

a monthly newsletter Aug 31, 2017
 

As cooler breezes replace our hottest days in the northeast, I am pensive of the imminence of fall, a new school year, and the fleetingness of summer. 

Activities that kept my life as busy as ever now seem like a season ago! This summer, I was immersed in developing my online D-Tox Academy (still in its prenatal period), recording/producing/publishing fun and fascinating podcasts, and squeezing in rare moments in the kitchen to experiment with new recipes.

Help Your Immunity By Limiting EMFs

by the editorial team and Sophia Ruan Gushée

 

Our immune system, like everything else in nature, is immensely complex.

They have had thousands of years to evolve a combat system against bacteria, viruses, and a wide range of naturally-occurring health challenges or threats. The same, however, cannot be said about our immunity against EMFs (Electromagnetic Fields).

Over the past few decades, man-made EMFs have grown at an unimaginable pace. Our current EMF...

Health Benefits of Lemongrass Tea

 

Last year, a friend of mine made the most memorable tea, made from simply simmering fresh cut lemongrass (from our garden) and some stevia leaves (also from our garden). It was so delightful that I thought about it all year, eager to make more this summer. Finally, I made my own, and, wow! I was impressed by how easy it was to make, delighted by how delicious it is, and really curious about why my body seemed to feel so good from drinking it.

Turns out, lemongrass—full of...
