How Are You Sleeping Lately? EMF, Light Pollution and Your Health

Sleeping

We need darkness to sleep, and we need healthy sleep to restore our systems. But according to University of Bristol scientist Denis Henshaw, EMF and the constant stimulation of artificial light may interfere with our resting, or circadian rhythms. Whether we light our nights with TVs or IPads that lull us to sleep or simply never escape the light pollution from streetlamps and other outside sources, our systems are saturated 24/7.

“There’s a small but detailed literature demonstrating that Magnetic Fields interfere with the action of pineal cells in synthesizing melatonin.” Translation: our human light reaction threshold is sensitive to EMF. If we get over-stimulated, we don’t produce enough of the antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer agents we need to stay healthy. (From Henshaw’s 2012 paper) Continue reading

Inspiration: The Power of Intention

Whatever your goals, however you move through the world, your intention has incredible power. Remembering this truth makes the difference between healing and weakening, growing and shrinking, strength and suffering, happiness and conflict.

Here are some insights from two experts in mind-body medicine.

Deepak Chopra says, “An intention is a directed impulse of consciousness that contains the seed form of that which you aim to create. Like real seeds, intentions can’t grow if you hold on to them. Only when you release your intentions into the fertile depths of your consciousness can they grow and flourish. “ On the Chopra Center website, he quotes the Upanishads as a foundational way to understand the power of intention:

“You are what your deepest desire is.
As your desire is, so is your intention.
As your intention is, so is your will.
As your will is, so is your deed.
As your deed is, so is your destiny.”

Shield Protects Woman from Toxic Personalities

Why Mothers Give Their Daughters the Shield

In March, 2013, I received this distressing email:

“Dear Virginia,

It was such a sad day, today when I discovered that I left my shield
in the bin at the Albuquerque airport while going through the security
check point. And I cried, a lot.
I have called TSA, and e-mailed them a picture of a shield that I
downloaded from your website. Continue reading

Brain cells are destroyed by toxins

Autism, Heavy Metal Toxicity and Electromagnetic Radiation – Is there a Connection?

Brain cells are destroyed by toxins

Brain cells are destroyed by toxins

Most of us either know someone who either has a child with autism, Asperger’s syndrome or related developmental disorders, or who has it themselves. The younger you are, the greater your chances of know several individuals in this category. There has been a 60 fold increase in incidence of autism, Asperger’s syndrome or related developmental disorders since the 1970’s. WHY these numbers are soaring?

Causes of autism?

Lots of causes have been promoted in the media – vaccines is a big one, toxicity is less well known, and last but not least – there is the EMF connection. Dr. George Carlo, in 2007 decided to look at the toxicity/EMF connection. He knew that nearly everyone who lives on this planet absorbs heavy metals through the air we breathe, water we drink, food and environmental products that transfer the substance from the product to the human.

Celebrate Temporary Insanity Day on Tuesday February 19th

Did you know that twenty-five percent of people say their job is the primary stressor in their lives? Wow, one of the biggest causes of temporary insanity and stress is work and you spend a lot of time there. What is it about work that makes us all so crazy?

The Mayo Clinic says coping with stress is much easier when you identify your stress triggers, manage your time well, and take steps to curb burnout. They advise keeping a stress inventory. For a full week write down all the situations, events and people who cause you to have a negative or stressful reaction. Write down who was involved, where you were, what was going on, your response.

How did your frustration show up – anger, frustration, anxiety, upset stomach, headache etc.

A week of this should give you a much better idea of what/when/where/who is involved that is causing your-day to-day stress. Now pick one and work on it. Are there alternative ways you can deal with the situation? Look for ways you can set things up to help resolve things and reduce your stress.

FORGIVENESS – Are You in the Center of Your Circle?

FORGIVENESS

In the Babemba tribe of South Africa, when a person acts irresponsibly or unjustly, he is placed in the center of the village, alone and unfettered.

Babemba_PeopleAll work ceases, and every man, woman, and child in the village gathers in a large circle around the accused individual.

Then each person in the tribe speaks to the accused, one at a time, each recalling the good things the person in the center of the circle has done in his lifetime.  Every incident, every experience that can be recalled with any detail and accuracy, is recounted.  All his positive attributes, good deeds, strengths, and kindnesses are recited carefully and at length.  This tribal ceremony often lasts for several days.

Cell phone and computer users – we’d like to introduce you to the Bioelectromagnetics Society – Scientists who Care about Us!

The BioInitiative Report from Scientists who Care about Us!

We just received the latest 1479 page BioInitiative Report from the Bioelectromagnetics Society.

The Bioelectromagnetics Society (BEMS) promotes the annual exchange of ideas to advance the science of natural and applied electromagnetic fields in biology and medicine.

BEMS is an international society with members from 40 countries and regions around the world. Their BioInitiative Report 2012 is filled with studies you’re going to want to know about.

Can You Tell Me the Secret of the Stones in the Shield?

The Shield is a matrix of all natural quartz and other gemstones; hand cut stones glued one at a time very exactly in a geometric pattern, then covered with silicon so that the stones don’t shift, ever.

I can’t actually tell you the secret of what stones are in the Shield. I’m not purposely being secretive, well actually I am, but there is a good reason for that. Actually the rationale comes in two parts.

Why Should You Take Steps to Use Your Cell Phone Safely?

Microwave News just posted an article about an article posted in the January 20, 1964 issue of Newsweek titled, “The Mrs. G Effect” about a California housewife, who could hear noises that no one else could hear. An expert concluded that she was converting alternating fields into sound signals “as though she were a radio receiver”.

What seemed totally nuts back then, is much more common place these days. This phenomenon is now known as the microwave auditory effect, also known as the microwave hearing effect or the Frey effect.

That brings me to my subject for today – cell phone safety. Most people can use their phone without feeling anything….today. Researchers and health professionals are compiling data showing that the effects are cumulative and just like smoking, asbestos, lead, artificial sweeteners and many other products, the real truth won’t be known until there are huge amounts of people sick or dying and the facts are no longer controversial.
