We know that ionizing radiation like microwaves can cause damage and cancer but did you know that non ionizing radiation like the ones given off by cellphones and wifi routers have been linked to cancer as well?
Technology has made our lives much easier but new studies are starting to show that radiation that was once thought to be harmless has actually been affecting us deeply.
But it makes sense.
We are made of all kinds of different frequencies, we are completely electric and actually have an electrical charge on us.
Every organ in the body has a different frequency and they can change throughout the day, based on our mood, and if we are healthy or not.
I find this simply amazing because many diseases can actually be tracked by the different electric frequencies in our bodies.
But that’s a different story.
So what is Electro-hygiene?
Electro-hygiene is a new term that’s come with the advent of all this technology full of batteries and frequencies and radiation.
When we have good electro-hygiene we maintain healthy habits with our technology and set them up in places that minimize risk and damage to our health.
Sources of electromagnetic radiation include:
– Televisions (especially smart TVs)
– Wifi Routers
– Electrical Sockets
– Fluorescent Lights
– Electronic devices
So how do we stay Electro-hygienic?
The biggest thing is to keep your cell phone away from your head and body, especially any organs like the reproductive ones.
Our glands are exceptionally sensitive to stimuli and can be adversely affected by these types of radiation.
Keeping wifi routers and cell phones out of the bedroom is huge.
Bad sleep = easy triggers
Some people are extremely sensitive…
They are the canaries in the coal mine and will not be able to sleep properly with electronic devices in the room.
Even things like electrical sockets can prevent us from sleeping right.
We all know from my previous post on blue light that the light spectrum radiation given off by televisions, computer screens, cellphone screens and fluorescent light affect our circadian rhythm and mess with our hormones like cortisol and melatonin.
This affects our bodies ability to digest food, detox, create hormones, reduce inflammation etc and they all stress our migraines.
There are devices available that you can put on your electronic devices you carry with you to help with the radiation but for many of them, unless they are a lead box, you can’t keep the frequencies in.
There are actually canopy shielding devices that you hang over your bed that act as a faraday cage which basically means they block out all electromagnetic frequencies from entering into your bed space.
In the world of migraines we find many of us are sensitives.
We are acutely aware of changes in our environment and bodies and because of this it’s extremely important to reduce exposure to these electromagnetic stressors.
Not only does this add to our stress bucket but it can also prevent us from adding to our health bucket.
So then the question comes down to…
How aware are you of your Electro-hygiene?
