With our awareness of dirty electricity and how our bodies can benefit from a calm environment, we attempted to find a way to install shielded wiring. It was not a budget friendly option. So, the best option for us was to have a “kill switch” installed per bedroom. The kill switch is an additional switch located directly above the bedroom switches near each bedroom door. At night, the switch will be flipped so that no electrical current will be running through the walls or ceiling where we are sleeping.
What’s the problem with electricity flowing around our bodies while sleeping? We will summarize our hours of reading as we have done. Please feel free to google “dirty electricity” and “EMF pollution.”
To much of a good thing can be bad. The sun is good for our bodies, but in excess it will result in a sunburn or worse health affects.
Our bodies are delicately balanced with an electromagnetic system. Our very cellular level, right down to the mitochondria, is affected by EMFs.
With our flood of technology surrounding our bodies, we are exposed to man-made electromagnetic frequencies from radio waves, WiFi signals, and microwave radiation. The research consistently includes the following health related affects:
- Body aches and pains
- Brain fog
- Cancer risk increased
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Difficulty sleeping
- Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
- Worsened inflammation
Articles consistently list the following suggestions:
*turn off your wifi router at night
*do not sleep with electronics near you
*keep your bed away from major appliances (for example: Do not put your bed on a wall opposite your refrigerator)
*use on/off switches instead of dimmer switches
*use incandescent light bulbs – NOT fluorescent or spiral shaped LED light bulbs
*opt for an LCD TV instead of a Plasma TV
*use a hardwire for your computers
