I love sharing information with clients and peers, but please don't listen to a word I say. Instead, if something resonates with you? Then happily check it out, first, to see if it's right for you.
The products I use, when used correctly, work and are safe. I have been involved with BioSyntonie products since 2002 and use them also in my private healing practice, with much success. May you have success, too.
All electronic appliances, equipment, and devices emit a measurable electromagnetic field (EMF.) As long as there are no wiring or shielding problems, EMF levels, commonly measured in milliGauss (mG), decline sharply in relationship to the distance away from the emitting source. We expect them to decline to zero within three feet of the source. If this decline does not occur, it is an indication of a potentially serious problem.
The sensitivity of a person and length of time a person is exposed to EMFs makes a difference. The more neurologically and/or biochemically sensitive a person is, the more they will be affected. The areas to focus an EMF evaluation on are the places where a person spends most of their time. Usually, that will be either at work or when sleeping. The goal, then, is to minimize the amount of EMF at the place of work and in the bedroom. EMF can also affect sensitive plants, animals, and sensitive equipment like printers.
Gauss meters are used to measure mG. The setting on the Gauss meter should be ELF for extremely low frequency fields. Your power company’s environmental health and safety department will have a Gauss meter that can measure and calculate the levels on all three planes (x, y, and z axis.) Less expensive, digital Gauss meters used by most others, measure on a single plane, but are usually just as accurate.
When an EMF evaluation is done on site with the single-plane device, it is simplest to record the amount from the plane with the highest level. That will represent the minimum EMF level and saves the time and cost of calculating the true level, which is slightly higher, relative to the minimum. Once EMF levels go beyond 4 mG, this slight difference no longer matters, hence the simpler choice.
EMF levels above 4 mG are considered to be elevated.
EMF levels above 8 mG are considered to be significantly elevated.
Multiple European countries have found a high incidence of childhood leukemia at a constant 4 mG. The United States now acknowledges these findings, but will not take a stand on any other EMF health-related issues.
While there is a lack of consensus (generally due to politics, corporate greed, and a non-pragmatic health philosophy in the USA) on the health effects associated with exposure to EMFs, reports suggest that EMF exposure may be related to sleep disturbances, emotional disturbances, memory loss, reduced cognitive function, fibromyalgia, overall health decline, and more.
In one government report, although they were unable to prove conclusively that EMF from power lines caused cancer, the scientists stated that disturbing changes occurred at the cellular level when the human body was subjected to said EMFs, and they urged further research.
My own personal and clinical experiences and research has led me to believe that EMFs appear to cause slow dehydration-like stress to the body at the molecular or cellular level, which differs from the type of dehydration typically thought of within the medical profession. This cellular dehydration can cause premature aging as well as entropy (hardening) of connective tissue. Connective tissue is everywhere in the body and wraps all organs and vessels and is beginning to be seen as a separate sensory organ as well as one that nourishes all the other tissues and organs, so its importance cannot be overstated.
Chronic dehydration is already known as a major cause of most degenerative aging diseases. If you believe or realize that the body is a conductor of sorts of electricity, then it is easier to understand that sufficient water is very important to the conductivity and therefore health of the organism, just as water is used to produce electricity at a hydroelectric power plant. Consequently, water intake will be discussed as one of the ways to counteract the effects of EMF pollution on the body.
Measurement with a Gauss meter while an appliance is on, is the only way to know for sure what, if any, EMFs it is emitting and from where. In general, the more expensive the appliance, the more well-made and shielded it is, therefore the safer it is. Any electrical appliances that do not need to be on, should be unplugged when not in use. Today’s outlet strips have an on/off switch that makes it easier to do this, without having to deal with many individual plugs.
Any appliance that has a boxy plug (called a transformer plug) will emit extremely high EMF levels varying in range from 60 – 200 mG. The more of these transformer plugs you have, the more cumulative EMF you are dealing with. Older plugs often emit much more EMF than newer ones. Appliances with transformer plugs are usually cordless phone bases, cell phones, and specialty electronics. In general, these plugs are a good thing, because they keep the appliance from being the source of the EMF. However, if these plugs are within three feet of where you spend a lot of time or within six feet of where you sleep, then it is advised to get an extension cord with attached outlet strip and relocate the plugs to a safe distance.
Appliances that have an in-line transformer box are usually computers. These transformers are safer than transformer plugs, but still emit above 5.0 mG up to around 45 mG.
Appliances that affect the air in a room, like air conditioners, fans, and air purifiers are doubly troubling because the EMF clings, so to speak, to the water molecules in the air and then they get breathed in. Minimizing the use of these appliances or buying ones with the lowest EMF is recommended.
You cannot escape the EMF from a cordless, landline phone. I don’t recommend owning one after losing significant hearing in my left ear from using one.
In the kitchen, the digital electronic portions of microwaves, stoves, and dishwashers can emit EMF fields, too. Dishwashers, less so. Gas stoves without electronic ignition are preferable. Microwaves, in this author’s opinion, should never be used. If used, be at least fifteen feet away when it is in operation.
Most refrigerators emit high EMF, although usually only to the rear, and worse, they cause gas disturbances which affect people’s brains, somehow, causing a loss in focus and ability to concentrate. I've seen this in action, unfortunately. The negative effects of gas compression are not limited by walls and usually extend up to 20 feet in any direction of a refrigeration unit. For this reason, it is highly advisable not to sleep within 20 feet of any refrigeration unit. In hotel and motel rooms, unplug the refrigerator.
All dimmer light switches emit med-high EMF, varying depending on brand and quality of wiring. Usually at least 15 mG.
THE FUSE BOX
Fuse boxes or breaker boxes, unless properly shielded, usually admit extremely high levels of EMF. Improperly wired homes and offices can cause the EMF from the fuse box to travel in the walls along electrical wires. Any wire or metal pipe that has an EMF field and also touches a water line, can transmit the EMF to the water in the line. For this reason, walls, floors, and ceilings are measured when a Gauss meter is available. Repairing improper wiring is recommended.
When possible, it is good to walk the perimeter of the home or office building to find out if there are any stray EMF fields from underground equipment or power line problems. If found, these are difficult to resolve without convincing the “health and environmental safety department” of your local utility to check it out. They will do their best to avoid any acknowledgement of such problems. I have found, however, that calmly and diligently reporting it (while quietly mentioning a chronic health problem) causes the utility to covertly find and repair the problem without letting you know they have done so. In one such case, six repair trucks suddenly showed up on the block of a client’s home where I had done an EMF evaluation and the client had called the power company. I had found problems outside the home, leading into the home. The electric company put the woman off for a week until after the trucks were all gone, and then they offered to come and check out the problem. Of course, they had already fixed the problem.
Please note that no electrician or regular power company employee will know anything about EMF or Gauss meters. One client used the word Gauss meter each time she called, and ended up having the gas company come to her home, three times, to check for a gas leak. You can’t make this stuff up. Please also note the significance that the people who do know, are in the “environmental health and safety department” of my power company.
Keep the body hydrated with water to minimize the effects of this cellular level dehydration. It not only helps your body’s natural electrical system to function better, it also does most of the work in helping the body to eliminate environmental pollutions.
Use this simple Mayo Clinic formula for determining your water intake need: half your body weight, in ounces, per day. Caffeinated beverages, tea, soda, sugared drinks, alcohol, and juice are fluids but do not constitute water in the form it is intended here. In fact, they dehydrate versus hydrate. Note: Tea made from leaves of the tea plant contains caffeine; The drink made from most herbal plants is a tisane, not a tea, and is usually naturally caffeine free. If you are unaccustomed to drinking water, work up, slowly, to the recommended amount. The water in raw, crisp, watery vegetables also counts toward daily water intake needs.
I don’t know why, but meditation or similar de-stressing techniques, done daily, seem to also help minimize the effects of EMF on the body. Perhaps the answer is as simple as countering the cellular stress I believe that EMF causes.
I do not believe in using electronic devices to protect one from electronic devices. BioSyntonie, by Terre de Lys, uses no electricity in the production of their products, nor are their products electronic. They are made from natural, protective elements already in the Earth. I have researched other options, yet I continue to prefer BioSyntonie to protect my own apartment and body. Where I live is very toxic and I live in a very sensitive body, so getting the best is a must for me.
The following BioSyntonie product suggestions are based on a generalized protocol. This protocol can be relied on when an actual EMF evaluation, with a Gauss meter, cannot be done. Your situation and your priorities are ultimately what matter when choosing protection, however this protocol will be listed in the order of importance from most to least for most situations.
Note: These products are produced by and can be found at www.TerreDeLys.com, or you may contact them to find a local distributor. Caveat: They are notorious for not responding to customers. Were it not for the true effectiveness of their products, they would be out of business long ago. For this and other reasons, I chose not to be a distributor and choose, instead, to focus on my healing practice.
The Refrigerator/Freezer Protect: A 5-disc-set made especially to protect from EMF and harmonize from disturbances produced by gas compression in the refrigeration process – disturbances which have been shown (and I have witnessed) to affect the function and regulation of the brain. Highly advised for anyone sleeping or working within 20’ in any direction, regardless of walls, of a refrigeration unit.
The Fuse Box/Electric Protect: A 5-disc-set that is placed directly on the fuse box, minimizing the EMF effects both at the source and for all of the wiring from the box to the outlets. There is a standard set and a heavy-duty set.
Wall Protect 3D: This 5-disc-set has a harmonizing or “de-stressing” effect from EMF and other “blue world” pollutions coming from outside the home or office, like Radio Frequency Waves and WiFi. The stress it takes off a sensitive body and brain is palpable and makes living and working in my home much more comfortable. It is third in priority, but it usually is the one that is most noticed by people, usually within twenty minutes of installation. When I switched from the original Wall Protect to the newer, 3D version, that is when I became aware of how much the WiFi revolution has affected our brains – I could literally feel the difference. The wall protect is installed as its name suggests: on the inside of an (one) exterior wall.
Cell/Cordless Phone Protect: My feelings about cell phones and cordless phones are very strong based upon the damage I have seen these things cause, therefore I urge everyone to use this affordable protection. It is just one, dime-sized disk. On my own phone, I added an individual “electric protect” disk for extra insurance and because my hands are hyper-sensitive.
Computers: As computer technology keeps changing, so do the BioSyntonie products for various computer setups, so they won’t be mentioned in detail here, but we have products for just about any computer setup. The new iMac, which I have, is especially hard on the eyes and brain, so, for example, I used my old “laptop protect” and added a 5-disc “electric protect” to it. Much nicer now.
Colloidal Solutions: Although listed last, because they are a not the standard disks, but water products, instead, these are not least important. The colloidal solutions of Terre de Lys are the most economical and useful, because they can be used anywhere, and on almost anything, including and especially your body. Our top seller and my favorite is Nirvana II, a great vitality restorer and first-aid kit item. It gives me more energy, reduces and can even eliminate pain, speeds healing, etc. Sold in 16oz bottles for transfer to your own mist-like spray bottle for application. The second favorite is Voyager as it helps eliminate jet lag and the stress on the body from flying.
Most people, especially sensitive people, notice a difference within fifteen minutes after implementation of BioSyntonie protection devices. They feel calmer, more relaxed and can think more clearly. The resultant effects on overall health and immune function: priceless. In environments overburdened by pollution it may require more protection than just the minimum: An associate and now distributor of BioSyntonie products in New York City, Dr. Suhu, only needed the minimum protections in his Long Island office, but he had to add extra for his NYC office because the two locations had very different EMF and Blue World pollution levels.
Not all BioSyntonie products are listed here, just the most commonly purchased. I list them for public convenience because it is difficult to get this information elsewhere without jumping through various hoops. Some of these products can be very expensive, but each is meticulously hand-made, portable in case one moves, and will last forever as long as not broken. A small chip will not affect their function, but a chip half-way through or a crack all the way through requires disposal.
There is usually a 60-day money-back guarantee as long as the products are returned unbroken and in clean, sale-able condition. Prices not only tend to change unpredictably, but even the listed prices are often inaccurate. Plus, shipping rates are higher than normal due to overseas shipping and fragility of product.
Solutions to everyday stress involve identifying where we are emotionally unhappy and then taking action to correct or curb the circumstances involved, and that means finding out what’s at the root of a given problem, before seeking solutions. I love this kind of problem-solving and happily share for those seeking similar unique yet ubiquitous solutions. Consequently, the topics here may vary within health, lifestyle, and work/business.
