Why You Should Detox Your EMFs

Most people don't realize that we have many opportunities to reduce EMF exposures, and in the places we spend the most time: our homes.

After years of research and practice, nontoxic lifestyle expert Sophia Ruan Gushée has distilled her experience into 21 power-lessons to hack EMF exposures that you won't miss

Watch the video below to learn about symptoms (and risks) you may experience from EMF exposures and how the EMF Detox can help.

Why I created EMF DETOX

It wasn't until I was writing my book, A to Z of D-Toxing: The Ultimate Guide to Reducing our Toxic Exposures, that I first learned about health risks from manmade EMFs.

As a busy NYC mother, working intensely in investment management, the last thing I wanted to hear about was another worry (and responsibility) for my growing family.

But the data concerned me. After pouring over dozens of credible reports, I began to see patterns. They echoed the history surrounding toxic exposures in this country, including lead, tobacco, and asbestos. In America, we assume safety, until there's proof of harm. 

For particularly vulnerable populations, like children, this lag-time can have devastating impacts.

Reducing my EMFs improved my chronic symptoms immediately

Meanwhile, chronic symptoms I had been experiencing were rapidly worsening: 

  • nausea
  • pressure in my chest
  • brain fog
  • deteriorating memory
  • alarming insomnia
  • tingling in my tongue and fingertips

After trying various ways to feel better, I eventually hired an expert to measure my home for EMFs. I was shocked by what I learned.

After implementing a digital detox in my home, I felt better IMMEDIATELY. My heart, brain, memory, and nausea felt better right away.

I now recognize the pattern of my symptoms listed above as ones that are associated with chronic and high EMF exposures. By detoxing my EMF exposures, I noticed many benefits that improved my brain, body, energy, attention, presence, and sleep.

I reset "my normal." 

 

Reset your "normal"

With this new (detoxed) "normal," I now realize that, in the past, I suffered through symptoms that were so persistent that I thought it was just "my normal." I didn't know that I didn't have to live with certain chronic symptoms, and that I could feel much better.

By experimenting with changes that are not drastic, I realized that I had more influence over "my normal" than I had known. 

My experience will not be like yours. We will each enjoy unique benefits. And some people won't notice any. Regardless, the EMF Detox will reduce your risks to a long list of health effects that are actively being studied.

I invite you to the EMF Detox to experiment with which benefits you may notice. Many of us can discover tweaks that can elevate our "normal." This can help you recognize when you need an EMF break. Studies may prove that reducing your EMF exposures should be as important as eating healthy and exercising regularly. The collective body of science is headed in that direction!

And we can pursue the EMF Detox strategy without compromising productivity and meaningful connection. WARNING: unexpected benefits may include enhanced presence, mindfulness, and contentment.

While everyone would benefit from reducing their EMF exposures, those who may appreciate it the most, or may need it the most, are: 

  • parents to young children
  • expectant parents
  • people who would like to become parents in the future
  • people who suffer from chronic symptoms or have compromised immune systems
  • people looking to sleep, and feel, better

Frequently Asked Questions about EMFs

Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) are electric and magnetic fields produced by anything with a current running through it. This includes computers, lightbulbs, the human body, earth, and more.

EMF Detox: The Ultimate 21-Day Digital Detox program focuses on manmade EMFs that you can control.

While there is no consensus, especially in the US, about the safety/risks of our chronic exposures to low frequency EMFs (like from cell phones), this developing story shares patterns with those of cigarette smoking, secondhand smoke, lead, asbestos, and chemical flame retardants. Some experts believe the science proves that we are already experiencing threatening risks. Some are not yet convinced. And debate will continue for decades to come.

In the video in the next section, Dr. Sanjay Gupta does an excellent segment commenting on the developing science on whether cell phone radiation, a contributor to EMFs, may cause cancer. The segment highlights key issues when studying the safety of cell phone radiation. Remember though that settling the question of whether cell phone radiation causes brain cancer is just one among many unanswered questions about the health risks from our many EMF sources.

There are varying interpretations of the scientific data. Studies on the potential health effects from one popular EMF source–cell phones–have been focused on whether cell phone radiation causes cancer.

  • In 2011, the International Agency for Research on CancerExit Disclaimer (IARC), an arm of the World Health Organization (WHO), designated a working group to review all available evidence on cell phones. This group classified cell phone use as “possibly carcinogenic to humans." This is the classification also given to lead, DDT, and car exhaust. 

However, the potential health effects from chronic EMF exposures most likely extend beyond increased risk of cancer. The evolving body of science indicates potential increased risk of harm to:

  • fertility
  • brain health and functioning
  • nervous system
  • sleep
  • genes
  • endocrine system
  • cardiovascular health.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) advocates precautionary measures to protect children's health.

The Case for a Precautionary Approach

Some governments and schools around the world have reacted to the data with precautionary measures, which means they enact policies to protect the public and vulnerable populations, like children, from things like WiFi routers. For example, these countries required schools and/or public areas to restrict EMFs around children: Israel, France, England, Austria, & Canada

Reducing your EMF exposures can create more favorable factors that support your:
  • sleep

  • brain and nervous system

  • cardiovascular system
  • reproductive health
  • fertility
  • pregnancy outcome 
  • presence
  • likeability
  • wellness
  • children's health 

We each have unique vulnerabilities. And some of us may suffer from electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS). Described by the World Health Organization as "certainly real" and sometimes "disabling" for the affected individuals.

EHS symptoms most commonly experienced include:

  • dermatological symptoms: redness, tingling, and burning sensations
  • fatigue
  • tiredness
  • concentration difficulties
  • dizziness
  • nausea
  • heart palpitation
  • digestive disturbances

After learning about EMFs from Sophia, I began charging my phone on a desk across the room instead of on my bedside table. I sleep more peacefully now, and wake less often throughout the night.

Sophia’s Detox Your EMFs program is a great step-by-step guide. It’s so well researched with lots of practical tips on how to protect yourself and your family. I loved each day’s video. The daily checklists got me thinking about real-life practicalities. One big change we made is to have our Wi-Fi router on a timer. Now it switches off at night, giving us less exposure to EMFs while catching that all important deep restorative sleep. The extra video links were very interesting and insightful. The one on electromagnetic hypersensitivity was invaluable. It helped convince my engineer husband! I highly recommend the course.

I started by simply turning my cell phone on airplane mode. That night I had the deepest, most restorative sleep I'd had in years! Curious and a little skeptical that the impact could be so immediate, I played around with wifi every night for two weeks. The difference in my quality of sleep was unmistakable. The experiment also brought awareness to the fact that I hadn't been sleeping well all this time.

When I signed up for the 21 Day Digital Detox program, I wasn’t sure what I got myself into as I thought that I would have to limit my access to electronics during the program. It turns out that the program provides ‘easy to do’ action steps to reduce exposures to EMFs as Sophia breaks the program down into small chunks of information and actionable items. I engaged my 2 boys (age 14 and 9) in the program - each day they looked forward to learning more. We gained so much awareness about EMFs throughout the program and we’ve made some changes to reduce our exposures to EMFs. I’m so grateful for Sophia for creating this program and I highly recommend it to anyone who care about their health and the health of their loves ones.

It took almost no time and effort to implement some of Sophia's tips to hack EMFs, and my quality of sleep immediately improved. Thank God, because I was always exhausted!

I never thought I could put my phone on airplane mode, because I'm in the habit of sifting through all the notifications when I wake up-- for news, and especially for work. But after being challenged to do so, I found I was able to sleep more soundly, and it turns out I don't miss reading notifications first thing in the morning! If I can do it, anyone can.
