"Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”
My husband and I just returned from the first EMF Conference for medical professionals in the United States, and the take home message is clear: we need to change how we use technology and we need to change NOW.
To give you a taste of our weekend, you should know that when we arrived at the conference, the entire audience was told to put their phones in airplane mode. The conference facility turned off Wi-Fi as well - both in the conference room AND where we slept. There was also a designated lap top free zone for seats to accommodate people who are sensitive to magnetic fields, and if you did use a laptop, then you were instructed to disable both WiFi and Bluetooth. Once you learn about these issues, you realize that this is the least you can do.
Have you ever been to an event that took these steps? I haven’t. But this is exactly the kind of thing that should be happening at all gatherings to bring attention to the reality that wireless technology is hurting us – whether you can feel it or not. These conversations are going to be awkward as all hell, but absolutely 100% necessary.
Before I dive into the highlights of the conference, I need to say something more. Please don’t shake your head in despair and stop reading this email. For whatever reason – overwhelm, feelings of helplessness, despair, addiction, the fear that we’ve injured our children, etc – I’ve never encountered a topic that brings up more for people and in response, they just check out. I get it. It’s a lot to acknowledge – just please stay with me. Keep reading. This is so important because 90% of the negative impact is in your home. 90%. Yes, there are cell towers, power lines, neighbors and workplaces who do things you cannot control, but 90% of it, you CAN address. We certainly have addressed it in our home, and I feel so much better. Ok – now that you’re with me, let’s go!
Sharon Golderg, MD – EMF Exposure: Neurological & Cardiometabolic Effects
Dr Goldberg resides in Santa Fe. My understanding is that she doesn’t have a physical office. She comes to your home and is studying to be a Building Biologist (this is the professional organization that trains people to evaluate spaces for the impact of radio frequencies, magnetic fields, etc).
Dr Goldberg is an incredible human being and explained very clearly that EMF biological effects overlap with chronic disease mechanisms. Said another way, all the inflammation in your body associated with chronic disease is synergizing with your use of wireless technology. What are the biological effects of electromagnetic fields? Let me break it down for you:
Calcium channel effects
