Protect yourself from electromagnetic field effects

WE are all governed unknowingly by electromagnetic fields (EMF) constantly, and they influence everyone whether we like it or not.

EMF surrounds anything that uses electricity. Studies have shown that these fields alter energy flow between the individual and the space, thus causing health concerns and influencing peace of mind.

EMF are electric fields created by differences in voltage: the higher the voltage, the stronger the resultant field will be. 

Magnetic fields are created when electric current flows: the greater the current, the stronger the magnetic field.

Electrical appliances like televisions, microwaves, electronic gadgets, and other audio and video equipment should be unplugged when not in use and should not be placed in the bedroom.

According to the World Health Organisation, scientists are investigating the possibility that effects below the threshold level for body heating occur due to long-term exposure. 

To date, no adverse health effects from a low level, long-term exposure to radiofrequency or power frequency fields have been confirmed. Still, scientists are actively continuing to research this area.

Vasthu Sastra says that the space we occupy vibrates energy, and our body also does the same. 

Both these mass energies must be in harmony, and we will experience challenges in our physical and emotional wellbeing.

EMF is a physical “field’’ produced by electrically charged objects. For instance, lights, computers, televisions, radios, microwave ovens and other household electrical appliances have lower electromagnetic fields.

The higher frequencies come from UV lights and X-ray machines, to name a few.

Although we cannot avoid EMF, everyone should be aware that the greater the use of electricity and the closer we are to an appliance, the greater the effect on us. 

Experts are studying the potential health effects of EMF, particularly in the workplace, where people are ten times more exposed to it than they are at home.

Checks revealed that the potential effects of EMF on human health vary widely, depending on the frequency and intensity of the fields.

So, what can one do to reduce the effects of EMF in one’s surroundings? 

Vasthu recommends that people tap into natural lighting, which has tremendous benefits, rather than being overly dependent on electricity. 

One good practice is to allow the sun’s rays to enter the house by opening the northern and eastern doors and windows at sunrise. 

When building or renovating a property, have more openings in the eastern and northern stretches to allow natural light into the property.

This process provides natural lighting and the benefits of Vitamin D and flushes out stagnant energy, and energises the space. 

Having plants like Tulsi (basil) in the vicinity of the home can help reduce the adverse effects of EMF, which can cause stress, irritation, headaches and tiredness.

The Tulsi plant has many health benefits in Ayurveda (Indian science of longevity), and placing it nearby promotes goodness and lessens electromagnetic radiation.

Dwellers are urged to use electrical equipment only when it is essential, and it is highly recommended that these appliances be unplugged when not in use.

This is because plugging a wire into a socket creates electric fields in the air surrounding the appliance. The higher voltage, the stronger field. 

And the device does not have to be turned on for an electric field to exist in the room.

Avoid using electrical appliances like laptops, mobile phones and audio or visual players by the bedside as these appliances can affect sleep. 

Place them far away from your bed or, better still, outside the bedroom.
