Even as I sought to treat my EMF Sensitivity, I tried to understand not only why I began suffering symptoms when exposed to ultra low and very low electromagnetic frequencies, but why they started when they did. After all, I wasn’t born EMF Sensitive.
A Beautiful Truth? A few months ago, I watched a documentary called The Beautiful Truth. One part in particular got my attention. A dentist about to remove mercury fillings explained the importance of having it done by someone trained to do so. If not done properly, a great deal of mercury could end up in the body of the individual having them removed, exposing them to dangerous levels of the toxic metal. The dentist went on to point out that a significant percentage of people who did not see a specialist yet had their fillings removed went on to get an autoimmune disease down the road.
Last night I was drifting off to sleep when I realized that, for me, there was a relationship.
In my mid-twenties I talked to my dentist about removing the mercury fillings in my mouth. Even though he was not specially trained to do this, he told me it would be no problem, so I went ahead and had it done. A little over a year later I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, an auto-immune disease.
I do not blame my dentist. It’s very possible that if that had been the only stress to my system, I might have never had any trouble. However, I was going through one of the most stressful periods in my entire life. Coming from someone who, at ten years of age, died, was paralyzed and in a coma, that’s saying a lot.
I was able to get my RA into remission, but a short time later I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism.
A hair analysis done at that time revealed I had heavy metal toxicity, including high levels of mercury. My doctor, an MD, prescribed minerals to chelate the heavy metals from my system.
As the heavy metal levels came down my thyroid function returned to normal. Shortly after, I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area where I became very ill almost immediately. Unbeknownst to me at the time, I was suffering from EMF Sensitivity. In fact, I wouldn’t discover what was wrong for 9 years during which my suffering worsened as symptoms grew in number and intensity.
There is no doubt in my mind that if I hadn’t figured out what was going on and discovered all the remedies, I wouldn’t be alive today.
Three years later, after a series of fortuitous events, I began treating my EMF Sensitivity as if it were an auto-immune disease. I worked to strengthen my immune system by strengthening my adrenals. A central part of the treatment involved taking liquid mineral supplements.
Toxins bind to the minerals which help sweep them from the body.
As my system became saturated with the minerals it began to detoxify. This process did not rob me of energy. Quite the opposite, I began to feel healthy again.
I continued the program, following the signals my body was sending, tweaking supplements, adding or taking away as appropriate.
Over a year into this approach I can say that my health has stabilized. I am 90 – 95% free of symptoms from EMF Sensitivity.
A Healing Crisis? Five months into this approach, my rheumatic arthritis flared. I added ashwagandha and boswellia to my routine and drank red wine most nights for its anti-inflammatory properties.
When I removed any one of those three pieces of the puzzle, my symptoms came back more painful than ever. When I kept each of the three in the routine I felt better. Five months later my RA went back into remission. Today I am symptom free.
I can’t help but wonder if, due to the detox brought about by the minerals, the RA wasn’t part of a Healing Crisis?
It is likely that the removal of the mercury fillings set in motion a chain of events that resulted in conditions stemming from a weakened immune system. One of the conditions was EMF Sensitivity. In treating it as an auto-immune condition, strengthening my adrenals, I have brought about significant healing.
The puzzle over why and when, for me at least, has been solved.
