We, as well as all life on earth, depend on natural forms of electromagnetic radiation for our wellbeing. For example, the sun and our own planet provide various forms of these natural energies.
The sun radiates electromagnetic waves in almost the entire range of the electromagnetic spectrum. However, most of those frequencies are blocked by the earth’s atmosphere. Furthermore, many of those frequencies are very harmful to life on earth. The frequencies that reach the earth are mostly visible light and infrared (which we feel as heat on our skin). (Read the blog on “What is EMR and EMF”). The majority of the ionizing radiation including most of the ultraviolet (UV) frequencies are blocked by the earth’s ozone layer. On the other hand, the majority of frequencies below visible light which are non-ionizing (the RF – Radio Frequencies from space) are blocked by the earth’s ionosphere.
In addition, our planet has its own electromagnetic fields that help to sustain life. In fact, the earth is a giant magnet and also pulses at ultra-low frequencies.
Life has adapted to the electromagnetic energies that reach the surface of our planet. It is only since the late 19th century that we have added new forms of electromagnetic energies to our planet. Most of these new man-made frequencies are foreign to life that has evolved on our planet over billions of years. (Read the blog “We Are Electrical Beings”). As a result, many of these new electromagnetic frequencies have had a negative biological impact on all forms of life. This has been documented through thousands of peer reviewed scientific studies (reference them in The Bioinitiative Report).
We sometimes experience these ill-effects without realizing the cause of these symptoms. These symptoms include:
As a Building Biology Electromagnetic Radiation Specialist (EMRS), I find the sources of harmful electromagnetic radiation in your home, school, or workplace, and help to reduce or remove them.
