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 or non-ionizing radiation).

  • Limit 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. It's important to also minimize use of chemical products especially home cleaning supplies. 

  • Limit exposure to outdoor polluted air by limiting time outdoors in:

1. High smog areas

2. If heavy toxic chemtrail spraying outside (occurring worldwide under the guise of "geoengineering" and exposed with undeniable proof at the UN).

3. Radioactive areas (esp. from Japan's ongoing Fukushima nuclear disaster)

As of early 2015, the Fukushima radiation (from the triple meltdown in 2011) has reached the North American coast and is causing an alarming mass die-off of marine animals and birds. This phone application will turn your phone into a Geiger Counter.

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.

  • Limit exposure to light pollution from compact fluorescent lights CFLs (which contain toxic mercury and other carcinogens, cause "dirty electricity", emit flickers which cause neurological disturbances, contain high amounts of sleep disrupting/melatonin suppressing blue light, and dangerous levels of EMFs). Hazardous EMFs from CFLs can cause headaches, chronic fatigue, tinnitus, respiratory problems, gastric  problems, sleep disorders, skin problems, and even cancer. LED lights are also harmful to the health.

Use the safe inexpensive clear incandescent light bulbs which were banned a few years ago, but can still be found easily especially online. Or 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. They are used in Scandinavia to treat depression. Or 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.

Smart meters (also known as "spy and fry" meters) are a major EMF health threat that is being deployed worldwide. Learn how to refuse a smart meter or replace it yourself. Also, the 5G rollout that is now being rolled out quickly worldwide will have serious health effects.

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). More people worldwide are becoming electro-sensitive due to overexposure.

Long-term frequent use of cell phones, for example, 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 (5-15mm as mentioned in all phone manuals) especially when you sleep, and in 'airplane mode' when not in use.

Protecting yourself from EMFs is important. Using EMF protection devices may or may not be helpful. Keeping a safe distance from an EMF source is best or use shielding. An EMF meter is useful for checking if EMF levels at a certain location are safe. You can check the sounds of common EMF sources here. It's best to be a few meters away from an internal EMF source at home and greater than 300 meters away from an external EMF source outside the home like a cell phone tower.

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.

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