The Dangers of Microwave Radiation and How To Reduce Exposure

by the editorial team and Sophia Ruan Gushée

 

As someone who has become sensitive to electromagnetic fields (EMFs), I have often wondered about the safety of microwave ovens. Are they safe: not only in terms of the radiation they emit, but also in terms of what they may do to the food that they cook?

What is microwave radiation?

Microwave radiation is a class of radio waves that have frequencies ranging from 3000 waves per second (3 kHz) to 300 billion waves per second (300...

Halotherapy: Six ways to incorporate salt therapy into your self care routine

 

From as early as the 1800s, halotherapy, or salt therapy, has been associated with soothing and boosting some people's respiratory systems. While science is just beginning to understand how halotherapy may affect our biology, this ancient practice is becoming more popular in spas and for those seeking relief when conventional medicine hasn't helped.

Halotherapy is reported to improve some people's symptoms from inflammation and bacteria, as Doctor Oz...

EHS Symptoms from EMF Exposure

 

 

While researching the biological effects from our modern exposures to chemicals, heavy metals, and electromagnetic fields (EMFs) for my book A to Z of D-Toxing, I was able to start associating certain symptoms with certain environments. For example, in a new home office of mine, the longer I stayed in my office, the stronger became my feelings of nausea, pressure in my chest, and tingling in my finger tips and teeth.

Eventually, I hired an EMF expert to measure my home to...

I tried halotherapy at the Montauk Salt Cave, and this is what I learned.

podcast salt self-care Jun 26, 2017

 

Last summer, in August 2016, I attended my first Kundalini yoga class.

While the introduction to Kundalini yoga was fascinating, my primary goal was to experience WHERE the yoga class was: It was in a salt cave! The Montauk Salt Cave, in the most eastern end of Long Island.

Afterwards, I chatted with the founder of the Montauk Salt Cave, Shannon Coppola, about what motivated her to create a salt cave that's now expanding to a third location, which will be in Manhattan. If you, or...

Sick House Syndrome: 3 Strategies for a home that may be making you sick

 

Angela Cummings, pictured above, contacted me several months ago because my work really resonated with her. Curious as to why, I invited Angela to share her personal story with toxic exposures. Turns out, her home was making her and her son sick. Read her guest post below because most building materials can challenge our health. It's known as 'sick building syndrome,' or, in Angela's case, 'sick house syndrome.'

Detox Your EMFs: Simple Detox Tips to Cleanse Your Body

 

Detoxing from EMFs (Digital Detox)

Electromagnetic fields (EMF) are invisible forces that are emitted from wireless and electrical technologies all around us and can be harmful to your health and wellbeing. In fact, EMFs can cause symptoms of illness in infants, children and adults, particularly those who already experience low immunity.

An EMF detox is something everyone should consider. Using my Detox Your EMFs: The Ultimate 21-Day Digital Detox as guidance, my editorial team...

Can lavendar, basil, and peppermint essential oils repel insects?

insect repellents Jun 20, 2017
 

As a mother of three and a toxic exposures expert, I've been wondering about insect repellents. During our family's spring break vacation, we visited a high-risk area for the Zika virus.

While pregnant women and women of childbearing age are of greatest risk to the Zika virus, Zika can make anyone sick for up to a week with fever, rash, joint pain, red eyes, and other symptoms. The effects of Zika are still being studied so I was also nervous about the unknown, and potential...

EMFs from Appliances in Your Home

 

 

EMF Exposures in the Home

I used to think that EMFs were a concern to those who have certain situations, like living near power lines. I now know that the most common known cause of EMF (electromagnetic frequency) exposure to the average person is the use of cell phones and other wireless devices. Yet, as we endlessly scroll through social media and make countless phone calls to our friends and family, many people are still unaware of the EMF danger levels...

What Are The Current Regulations for EMFs?

emf Jun 15, 2017
 

In the US, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) determines guidelines for radiation from cell phones. Historically, guidelines from radiation exposure were developed to protect from acute injury from thermal effects. Science now shows that we may experience non-thermal adverse effects.

The FCC limit, currently at 1.6 W/Kg, has not been revised since 1996. Since then, mobile devices have proliferated, thereby increasing all of our exposures. For example:

  • There are...

Health Risks from EMF Exposures

 

Reducing your EMF exposures can improve your health both immediately and longer-term. In addition to reducing your risks to the more serious conditions listed below, you may find that you simply feel better.

 

My Experience

I used to interpret chronic symptoms as my "normal," guessing that they were the result of not enough sleep.

After reducing my EMF exposures, I now enjoy improved sleep and energy, less brain fog, improved brain functioning including memory, and fewer strange...
