How to Cause WiFi Sensitivity, Tube TVs and other Tidbits

view-inside-dusty-vintage-1950s-vacuum-tube-television-set-P8GG97

I’ve said it before but there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t learn or observe some new tidbit about EMF Sensitivity.

 

Or confirm what I already knew and have written about.

Materials that touch our skin, and mountains and trees, have a significant impact on whether or not someone feels symptoms from EM Frequency exposure.

I write about this in my book Riding the Waves: Diagnosing, Treating, and Living with EMF Sensitivity.  

Trees?  Early in my research into EMF Sensitivity I observed that mountains and valleys and trees or not all had an impact on how sick I was.

You can gain insight into this phenomena by reading up on radio wave propagation and what impacts it.

Wanna Be Sensitive?  I recently REconfirmed that copper toxicity will bring on sensitivity to WiFi.

To induce WiFi sensitivity ingest copper when you are already copper toxic or newly detoxed from it, or eat foods and beverages that are a significant source of copper.

It took two weeks of drinking organic breakfast tea to cause a mild sensitivity to WiFi.

Also caused manic symptoms which is incredible for creativity but not so good for sleep.  No mood changes.  Just lots of mental stamina.

It took two days of taking 2mg copper supplement – one each day to cause serious relapse of EMF Sensitivity symptoms.

The two events happened years apart.  The supplements were when I was living in San Diego and was still detoxifying the heavy metals.  The tea was a more recent experience.  All I did was drink tea over a period of two weeks – one a day – because I like it.  Within two weeks I noticed I’d developed a mild intolerance to WiFi. 

It took me two weeks to undo the damage caused by drinking the tea.

I detoxified the culprit – copper which I was able to identify as the problem metal because my hair began turning red.  

Upon detoxification protocol completion, all WiFi Sensitivity symptoms were resolved.

My observations are completely consistent with everything I discovered about the root cause of EMF Sensitivity.

Heavy metal poisoning.

Different metals will induce sensitivity to different frequencies.

Copper and WiFi go together like a bad marriage.

Tube TV.  I have a chapter in Riding the Waves where I explain that armed with new knowledge I went back through my history and found explanations for old mysteries.  I recently came upon another one.  Tube TVs give/gave off a tremendous amount of radiation.  The frequency impact equivalent is RADAR.

Specifically, the RADAR frequencies currently used in residential and commercial alarm systems.

Interestingly, in the aftermath of my brain surgery, my grandfather, who was a EE and the British surgeon who was a mentor in my holistic medicine career both urged me to stay well away from television sets due to the radiation they gave off.

The surgeon – an ENT surgeon – also wanted me well away from microwave ovens.

Current technology is generally better when it comes to power management, power leakage, and power efficiency, not to mention shielding.  However, commercial and residential alarm systems are still likely to induce EMF Sensitivity symptoms in those  suffering from the syndrome.

RADAR was the last sensitivity to go for me.  WiFi was the very first.

Shake, Rattle, Roll, and Cry.  GMFs coming from geologic fault lines can induce feelings of despair and hopelessness in individuals who are calcium toxic.

As I write in Riding the Waves, so did a wireless power charger purchased off Ebay that was made in China and did not have IEEE or CE certification. 

In the case of the wireless charger the symptoms were so bad they induced suicidal thoughts.

I caught it immediately and we tossed the technology.  Problem solved.

When I hear of regions with high suicide rates, I consider the relationship between calcium toxicity and the dark emotions induced by exposure to certain ultra-low and very low electromagnetic frequencies, including and especially those that come from the earth’s geologic fault lines.  There is a good possibility detoxing the heavy metals/minerals will relieve symptoms.

The Russians observed a relationship between exposure to ultra-low and very low EM Frequencies associated with power lines and high suicide rates among the power line workers as early as 1971.

What’s With Your Hair?  At this stage in the game, my hair will start to turn black if I have a high calcium meal or take zinc supplements. It will turn red if I have copper in my diet.  It will go blonde if I take magnesium, which chelates the calcium – and thus the dark color – out.

If my system is in balance I have light brown/ dark blonde hair that is curly.

As in spiral curls.

If I eat a bowl of yogurt or have cheese, the curl begins to straighten.

The same with red wine so I know there’s a relationship between red wine and absorbing calcium.

If I drink champagne or take any steps to chelate out the calcium, the curl comes back.

This happens almost immediately and is witnessed by those around me.  

It’s wild.

Damn Skeeters.  I’ll close this with the observation that having more sugar in the diet seems to make mosquitos very happy.  You are potentially more likely to get bit if your blood panel has been impacted by sweets.

Eating a sweet meal or dessert can also make one and two-day old mosquito bites start to itch even if they’d stopped.

We really arewhat we eat!

Migraine Update: Ear Piercing Cure

chart_ear-acupointsI was chatting with the woman making my doppio the other morning and we got to talking about migraines.  She told me a very interesting story and after getting her permission, I have elected to post it here in the hope that it offers hope and a possible solution for those who suffer from them

She explained that in high school she used to suffer terrible migraines.  She would get dots swimming before her eyes and that terrible pounding.

Two years ago, she got her right ear pierced and from that day onward has never experienced a migraine.

She’s been trying to convince her mom, who still gets them, to do what she did.

Needles and needles.  I believe this has to do with acupuncture points and though I saw where the piercing was ( higher up and more to the inside),  I could not tell you which acupuncture point was tapped.

It may be worth seeking out an acupuncturist to discuss various options.

My acupuncturist in San Francisco explained that leaving a needle in the ear in a specific spot would go far to reduce the headaches I was experiencing.  I went the herbal route for fear of bumping into something with a needle in my ear.

No needles needed.  In my own experience I’ve figured out that depending on the location of the migraine I can address it with mineral supplements.

  • On the left side temple – potassium deficiency.

As I’ve written previously, potassium has been found to be as effective at relieving migraines as Imitrex in clinical trials.

  • On the right side temple and sinus and tooth area – sodium deficiency.

The give away is a stuffy nose.  That is sodium deficiency and taking potassium will make the symptoms worse.

I hope this information helps those affected by migraines, providing hope, something to consider, and perhaps try.

Note:  Food triggers may cause issues by lowering crucial minerals.

When I drank diet colas I lost potassium which triggered potassium deficiency migraines.

What About Stress?  If you are constantly experiencing potassium deficiency migraines and food  triggers aren’t your culprit, it would be wise to consider a toxic environment – either work or personal.  Potassium is the adrenal mineral and if your system is in constant fight or flee mode, it’s like keeping your foot on the gas even when you have the nozzle in the tank.

 

The Gift that Keeps on Giving: The Health Protocol

freegreatpictureThanks to a brain hemorrhage when I was a kid, I have faced the challenges of having been blind, paralyzed, and in a coma.

Oh yeah, and I died three times in three days.

Though I recovered and went on to live a “normal life,” I continued to experience minor reminders of that time.  Specifically, when I got tired, my left leg would drag.

People would ask, “Did you hurt your leg?”  To which I replied, “No, I’m just tired.”  Fun to watch them try to connect the dots.

One of the more annoying fallouts from that little reminder was that it was incredibly hard on my shoes.

Or the left one at any rate.

I would scuff up the toes of boots and there was uneven wear on the soles of my tennis shoes that necessitated replacing my shoes more frequently than what I would have otherwise.

Another related symptom was small areas on my left leg, foot, and pads of my fingers on the left hand that were semi-numb or numb altogether.

While annoying, this didn’t negatively impact my life. 

After All These Years.  Beginning shortly after starting the protocol wherein I detoxified the heavy metals and set out to replenish depleted minerals, I noticed that I could feel some of those numb areas on my leg and foot.

I didn’t even notice anything about the pads of my fingers.  At first…

I also noticed I was able to move my left toes better.

Curling them further than I’d been able to when I couldn’t feel certain areas.

Time went on and I continued the protocol.

I was healing myself of EMF Sensitivity.  That was the priority and the lens through which I filtered symptoms and progress.

Fast forward.  The other day I realized it has been years since anyone has asked me if I hurt my leg.  More significantly, my tennis shoes, which normally would have been up for replacement, didn’t need it.

I checked the soles. No uneven wear – at all.  None.

I recently purchased boots and upon thinking, realized that I have not tripped and caught the toe of the left foot.

Not once.

Residual Progress. About three months ago I mentioned to Aaron that the feeling on the pads of my left fingers is now completely normal.

I have no idea when this changed but I’m pretty happy about it.  It used to feel as if there was water in the pads of the fingers, like a blister after a burn.

Set up for Failure. I remember writing some time back about how the lack of sufficient potassium can negatively impact cell signaling and muscle control.

I pointed out this would be particularly problematic for those going through physical and/or occupational therapy after a stroke or injury.

Many medications deplete potassium which potentially sets up those recovering from stroke or other paralytic conditions for one hell of a rough ride when trying to regain mobility.

I couldn’t help but think of my own experience and how I felt I’d been set up for failure because no one told us the medication I was on depleted potassium, critical to muscle function.

It’s difficult to quantify just how important having proper mineral balance is for our well-being.

Especially, the electrolytes.

It is definitely nice to think that like my neurosurgeon promised when I was seventeen, we continue to get better for the rest of our lives.

He just probably didn’t realize proper nutrient balance was equally as important as continued physical activity in that endeavor.

Such as sports, hiking, etc.

Hopefully sharing my experience will give hope to others who may be struggling to regain mobility and muscle function after injuries or illness.

It would be worth looking into electrolyte balance.

Be well!

GMF Research Part 2 – Willamette Valley, OR

9-pinot-noir-socialOne of the most challenging aspects of researching EMF Sensitivity is understanding the whys. 

 

  • Why was I sick?

I’d been fine and then suddenly I wasn’t – for no obvious reason. 

  • Why did I feel better because of various remedies?

In one case – music – it took me 9 years to learn the answer.

While research has helped me solve a number of the whys, it takes recognizing a pattern to start that ball rolling.

Noticing that something happens only in certain locations or under certain conditions.

After twenty years of searching why’s I’ve become programmed to look for patterns.  Because of this, I was able to observe that while most alcoholic beverages have a beneficial effect on my health, certain wines seem to be particularly therapeutic.

Pinot noirs from Willamette Valley, OR.

The Long and Winding Road.  Thanks to one of the earliest EMF Sensitivity breakthroughs I had a good idea where to start when trying to answer the why of this.  We were driving toward Silver City, NV** and Aaron commented on the color variations in the rock.

 “Can you imagine the mineral content of that rock?”

I used my Smartphone to do a bit of research and learned that the mineral content of those rocks matched the minerals in the bracelets that brought relief from EMF Sensitivity symptoms.

No wonder I felt so good in this area!

This observation led to a better understanding of the effect of geology on my health, setting the stage for understanding why wines of a certain region were so beneficial.

I figured there had to be something about the mineral content in the soil.

Next Stop?  Oregon Wine Country. After visiting Mt. Hood as part of GMF research, we traveled to Willamette Valley, Oregon, so I could look into why it was wine from this region was particularly therapeutic.  The staff at our hotel recommended two wineries they felt were worth a visit.

o

Stoller.  As bartender Chris Brabb set me up with a tasting of Stoller wines, I explained I was investigating why wines from the region were so beneficial to my health. He smiled in understanding and immediately suggested an answer.

“It’s the Jory soil.

Jory Soil.  He went on to provide a brief yet thorough geologic history of the area, explaining that the soil of the region – ideal for growing the grapes – is nutrient dense. When I further explained that I’ve had particularly good luck with pinot noirs, Chris told me the region is known for this varietal.

Though I also enjoyed a nice chardonnay that was unique in that it was aged in stainless steel rather than oak, giving it a crisp refreshing taste.

I thoroughly enjoyed talking with Chris, who has an excellent understanding of the holistic approach to health and how drinking wine can play a significant role in it.

I was also happy to learn that my suspicions were correct.  There is definitely something about Willamette Valley, Oregon that makes its wines unique and particularly beneficial to health.

If you get a chance to visit this beautiful part of the US, I definitely recommend a visit to Stoller Family Estate.

Domaine Serene.
  Our next stop was equally fruitful in my investigations.  Sommelier Levi Seed set up a tasting for me and went into a detailed explanation of each wine, pointing out the characteristics that made it unique. When I explained that I was looking into what it was about the region that made the wines so beneficial to health, he nodded and provided yet another explanation.

“It’s the McKenzie soil.”

Also called Willakenzie soil, it clearly provides the foundation for wines that are uniquely positioned to be part of a holistic lifestyle.

Levi was happy to take time to provide me with an in-depth understanding of the geology of the region.

Which truly is unique.

Sarah Akaw who was also working that day joined the conversation, discussing how the region’s wines definitely stand apart in their potential for health benefits thanks to the nutrient rich soil in which the grapes are grown.

I was thrilled to learn that Levi also has an excellent understanding of holistic health which led to an incredibly productive conversation.  I learned so much from him about the region’s unique geologic history and climate, and how Domaine Serene grapes benefit from it.

Levi then told me something that further cemented my theory that the mineral content of soil is what led to certain wines being particularly beneficial to health.

“We import some of our grapes from France.”

He went on to explain that the grapes came from the Burgundy region.  I smiled and told him that I had previously noticed that white wines from this wine region also seemed to be particularly beneficial to my health, to which he countered, “We are at the same parallel as that region.”

The 45th parallel to be exact.

I smiled to myself.  I had just been investigating the effects of magnetic differences of the earth’s parallel lines.

All information I found suggests the magnetic differences of latitudinal lines are insignificant.  I disagree. It may be difficult to measure magnetic change latitudinally, but my personal experience has made me aware that there are indeed significant magnetic differences.  That both wine regions are at the same latitude certainly supports this idea though more research would need to happen to explain why.

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at the beautiful Domaine Serene winery.  Levi went out of his way to help me not only enjoy the tasting but to truly understand what it was about the region that made its wines superior in terms of health benefits.  His thorough understanding of the geologic history as well as his expertise as a Sommelier made him the perfect individual with whom to have a conversation about my work.

I recommend a visit to this winery if you are lucky enough to visit the Willamette Valley.

End Notes.

I understand that other local wine regions, including those in Washington, also benefit from the unique geology of the area and while I have had good luck with merlots from Columbia Valley, Washington, I have had the best results, by far, with pinot noirs from Willamette Valley, Oregon, and white wines from the Burgundy region of France. 

I have also had good luck with chardonnays from Willamette Valley, and pinot gris in general, but I tend to stick with reds, and pinot noirs in particular, when I’m not drinking champagne.

I did enjoy – at the suggestion of a local merchant – a nice champagne from Argyle vineyards in Willamette Valley that is made with pinot noir.  I save it for special occasions.  Note:  For whatever reason I feel the effects of this particular champagne faster than any other champagne.

I continue to reap the health benefits of including wine and champagne as part of the holistic approach by which I regained my health.
