Lifestyle - Exposure to Environmental Pollution


It's important to reduce our exposure to external environmental stressors from  polluted air, noise, lighting, and electrosmog (also known as electro-pollution or electromagnetic frequencies/radiation or EMFs/EMR).

  • Minimize exposure to indoor polluted air by having air filtering plants in the house (like philodendrons, snake plants, christmas cactus, areca palm, lady palm, bamboo palm, ferns, etc.) or with a good quality air filter and ionizer. At least three plants in a room is sufficient and these plants will naturally absorb toxins and convert CO2 to oxygen. Also Himalayan crystal salt lamps or candle holders, aromatherapy diffusers, beeswax candles, sage incense, and bamboo charcoal clean the air fairly well. And minimize use of chemical products especially home cleaning supplies. 

  • Minimize exposure to outdoor polluted air by limiting time outdoors in high smog areas, in radioactive areas (from the ongoing catastrophic Fukushima nuclear disaster), or if heavy toxic chemtrail spraying outside (occurring worldwide under the guise of "geoengineering"). As of early 2015, the Fukushima radiation (from the triple meltdown in 2011) has reached the North American coast.

Regular detoxification of heavy metals, chemicals, and radiation is necessary. Sea vegetables like spirulina and fermented foods (probiotics) are the most protective foods against radiation and environmental pollutants.

  • Minimize exposure to light pollution from compact fluorescent lights CFLs (which contain toxic mercury, other carcinogens, and dangerous levels of EMFs). The EMFs from LED lights is 230 hz, incandescent lights is 350 hz, and CFLs is shockingly 26,740 hz. That's why the hazardous EMFs from CFLs can cause headaches, chronic fatigue, tinnitus, respiratory problems, gastric  problems, skin problems, and even cancer. 

Use full spectrum lights which simulate natural sunlight with its full spectrum of frequencies and colors thus providing healthy lighting. They eliminate screen glare and eye strain, improve mood, enhance mental awareness, concentration and productivity; visual clarity and color perception, and reduce dry eyes and eye fatigue. LED lights are also a more expensive safe eco-friendly option. Or use the safe inexpensive incandescent light bulbs which were banned a few years ago, but can still be found easily especially online. If using the computer at night, use freeware programs like flux to automatically calibrate the computer or device display's color temperature to the time of the day.

Long-term frequent use of cell phones can cause cancer so limit your cell phone use, and use headphones or the speakerphone whenever possible. Or use a cell phone protector. Keep the cell phone at a safe distance from your body at all times especially when you sleep and in 'airplane mode' when not in use.

Smart meters (also known as "spy and fry" meters) are a major EMF health threat that is being deployed worldwide. (full documentary here). Learn how to refuse a smart meter or replace it yourself.

You can protect yourself  by having plants around and using house/office protection (or here) and other EMF protection devices

EMFs affect the nervous, immune, and endocrine systems, and because they affect many vital systems at the same time, they cause multiple and wide-ranging symptoms. For example, they suppress pineal gland activity and reduce melatonin production thus disrupting the bodies circadian rhythms. They also suppress the parathyroid gland activity thus disrupting calcium ion regulation leading to weaker cell membranes and negatively impacting the muscles, bones, and nervous system.  Even the World Health Organization admitted in 2011 that EMFs are possibly carcinogenic (cancer causing).

Heavy metal detoxification (since heavy metals are like mini-antennas in presence of EMFs), healthy fats especially saturated fats (to maintain physical integrity/fluidity of protective cell membranes and nerve insulation), magnesium, and mushrooms like reishi, shitake, and mitake help protect the body from the harmful effects of EMFs.

  • Minimize exposure to noise pollution by reducing exposure to man-made noises and by listening to relaxing music, sounds of nature, or some peaceful silence.
