Sensitivity to electromagnetic frequencies.

Going Forward: A Focus on Fiction

57ebbf108b3031905555aeb5ead0485a--peanuts-gang-snoopy-2After five years, I have decided focus solely on fiction.  As such, I will decommission this site in August, 2018.

My books will still be available through major distributors.

 

It has been an amazing journey and I’ve enjoyed helping others by sharing what I’ve learned about EMF Sensitivity and using nutrition to heal the body.

Best wishes and good health!

Nutrition: Results May Vary

background-berries-berry-blackberries-87818As I was eating raspberries this morning I considered how berries have been a hit or miss proposition in my recovery.

Blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries are okay.  Strawberries, no – at least at this point.

The reason behind it is something most people probably don’t consider.

I never did.

Yet lack of awareness of the condition could be dangerous.  To summarize, the foods you eat and beverages you drink will affect you differently depending on the water you drink.

Specifically, whether or not you have hard [high calc] water.

I learned that foods high in calcium can be problematic if your primary drinking water is hard. This is not limited to cheeses, and in fact includes many foods, including so-called superfoods, that are purportedly good for your health.

Eating foods that are a significant source of calcium when you already have too much in your body can cause great harm.

Once I moved to a location where we had water that was not hard, I was able to eat many foods that had previously caused issues.  However, others, that had not been an issue, became one.

I believe this fluctuation is due to changing chemistry as I continue to reduce excess calcium, and will eventually resolve.

Looking back, I see why I got so terribly sick for a period of weeks while following an immune recovery diet.  Most of the foods were significant sources of calcium and we had hard water.

I also felt awful after taking a vitamin D supplement, so I quit almost immediately.

It wasn’t until I moved that I began to understand the impact of hard water on my recovery efforts.

I go into great detail on the effects of calcium on health and its role in EMF Sensitivity and Rheumatic Arthritis in Calcium: The Old Man Mineral and Its Role in EMF Sensitivity.

In eating healthy foods which included dark leafy green vegetables and cheese high in k2, I was exacerbating a problem.

I was making myself very ill.

Taking a vitamin D supplement made it ever worse.

The vitamin D Council advises against taking vitamin D supplements if you have high blood calcium levels. 

I had been frustrated because after years of incredible progress thanks to the nutritional approach, I was sliding back.

Though I did not get a return of the EMF Sensitivity.

It wasn’t until moving to the new water source that I fully understood.

I began to recover immediately upon moving.

I have no doubt that medications would also affect people differently depending on their diet and the type of water they drink; what nutrients are in it.  That foods can become harmful because of drinking hard water should be considered when mapping out a healing path.

Do not assume because a food is supposedly good for you that it wouldn’t cause grave harm to you personally.

The best advice here is to pay attention to how you feel after eating or drinking and make adjustments as appropriate.

growaloevera-1000

A Sign from Nature.  I made an interesting observation during this time.  The gel from an aloe vera plant turned blood red in the location where we had hard water.

Online research turned up no explanation for it.

When we moved to the different water source, this phenomenon stopped.

Additionally, plants that had anemic growth with the hard water began to – and continue to – thrive with the new water source.

It’s the little things that matter.

So pay attention to them!

Small Setbacks Big Victories

154309354

Ever since coming to understand the role heavy metal poisoning played in EMF Sensitivity, I’ve been focused on nutrition as a means to reduce and eliminate the symptoms.

 

Heavy metal poisoning causes EMF Sensitivity and nutritional balancing cures it.

The initial detox was intense but successful.  Learning to eat after is where the challenge comes in.

Supplements can cause sensitivity and intolerance to foods high in the nutrients that were in the supplement.

As I wrote in Calcium: The Old Man Mineral and its Role in EMF Sensitivity, excess calcium plays a significant role in EMF Sensitivity.

Though copper and mercury, along with a host of other metal minerals do as well.

Setback One:  I discovered that eating foods high in calcium causes numerous health issues, though my EMF Sensitivity has never returned.  In fact, I’ve come to see that there are further improvements thanks to my work reducing the excess calcium.

I was so focused on specific technologies such as Wifi, Bluetooth, modems, I forgot there were other sensitivities.

I am no longer sensitive to motors.

Refrigerators and ceiling fans were a big problem for me, as were AC units.

I am no longer sensitive to RADAR.

Many commercial alarm systems utilize RADAR frequencies, making them problematic for EMF Sensitives.

These sensitivities were apparently tied to the excess calcium because once I was rid of it, the sensitivity to that technology disappeared.

Makes going to grocery stores a hell of a lot easier.

Setback Two:  I verified that supplements with copper and/or calcium cause terrible health symptoms.

Some EMF symptoms from copper.  A vibrating sensation at the site of a stress fracture from calcium.

It took me almost three weeks to get back to normal after just one dose of an organic vitamin supplement.  What did I learn from that little bit of fun?  It really is better to get nutrients from food!

With a significant caveat!

Foods high in calcium cause certain symptoms – at least at this point.

Though not a return of EMF Sensitivity – I’ve apparently gotten past that.

Foods that affect calcium absorption can also be problematic.

I’ve only been working on excess calcium for the past year, and I’m taking a much more conservative approach than I did for the full heavy metal poisoning.  Still, progress has been steady.

Cheers!  From the beginning, alcohol has been a God send.

I write about red wine and margaritas as remedies in Riding the Waves: Diagnosing, Treating, and Living with EMF Sensitivity.

Not only is it anti-inflammatory, which has helped me better digest food and feel less stress overall, some alcohols actually do wonders to get rid of the excess calcium in the body!

  • Tequila
  • Champagne

I’ve written more extensively about the role of alcohol in reducing excess calcium in my calcium book.

I have tested beer, red and white wine, champagne, and margaritas. I’ve got it down to a science and know how each one affects the balance.

It’s tedious having to keep such a vigilant eye on what I eat and drink, but it’s a small price to pay for being free of EMF Sensitivity and Rheumatic Arthritis.

Same root cause.

I continue to learn for the simple reason that I’m hyper tuned to how my environment affects my health. As a result, I’m able to pick up subtleties most people would miss.  I’ll continue to share what I’ve learned but one truth remains:

Get rid of the heavy metals and you will go far to restoring your health.

I’m going to take this opportunity to point out something that should be obvious but apparently isn’t.  If you go to a spa or center to do a detox and then return to the environment that got you sick to begin with?  You won’t get better.

 

 

Heavy Metal Music for EMF Sensitivity(Calcium) induced Allergies

cover_live_at_oakland_coliseum“You’re always wrong, Frank.  That’s what’s so right about you.”      –  Henry Blake to Frank Burns MASH – Mad Dogs & Servicemen, 1974

In 1985, rock musician Dee Snider was invited to testify before Congress regarding “offensive (i.e., profanity, obscene images, lyrics describing sexual and/or violent matters) material in regards to music albums.”

Various authorities have been claiming rock and roll music would destroy this country since Elvis gyrated on stage in the 50s.

The whole thing was ridiculous and hypocritical.

How many members of the PMRC and/or their supporters listened to Elvis, The Beatles, Led Zepplin, the Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, or other supposedly counterculture musicians in their youth?

What’s interesting is that with all the focus on the supposedly offensive lyrics and/or imagery, no one ever discussed the music itself or its effects on people.

In 2008, while searching for remedies, if not a cure, for mysterious symptoms caused by sensitivity to ultra-low and very low electromagnetic frequencies, I discovered that certain heavy metal tunes relieved and eliminated the symptoms.

I created a play list that enabled me to be around these frequencies without suffering – enabled me to live a more normal life.

But why?   I spent a great deal of time trying to understand what it was about the specific heavy metal tunes that facilitated the relief.  To this end, I spoke to several professionals.  They listened politely and pretty much to a one, suggested that heavy metal music was not really music.

Tell that to AC/DC, Motley Crue, Ozzy Osbourne, Dio, Godsmack, etc.

 One percussionist did suggest binaural beats and entrainment which was interesting but didn’t apply.  A classical guitarist turned up his nose and refused to speculate.

I shrugged and went on my way, compiling a comprehensive list of heavy metal songs that provided intense relief to debilitating symptoms.  A copy of this list is in the Fix EMF iPhone app.

Although I didn’t observe a specific health benefit from heavy metal musisc until my EMF Sensitivity research, I had noticed that, beginning shortly after my brain surgery, listening to heavy metal music – and AC/DC in particular – was very soothing for me.  So, it was no surprise when I read in 2015, researchers observed significant mental health benefits from listening to heavy metal music.  Specifically, it is good for treating anger and depression.  Both are symptoms of EMF Sensitivity and – ironically – heavy metal toxicity.

I recently released Calcium:  The Old Man Mineral and Its Role in EMF Sensitivity.  In the book I discuss depression and anger as symptoms of excess calcium.

These are also symptoms of EMF Sensitivity.

While only eliminating the excess calcium will cure the situation, using a variety of remedies can relieve the symptoms.

These remedies are discussed in Riding the Waves: Diagnosing, Treating, and Living with EMF Sensitivity.

I find it fascinating that the study came to the same conclusion I did – that listening to heavy metal music has positive health benefits.

Not all heavy metal songs do the trick.

Today, I was experiencing itching due to calcium in something I ate.

As I explain in my Old Man Mineral book, I have all but eliminated the itching.  However, as I  test reintroducing foods, I am sometimes caught up.

It was calcium rich green leafy lettuce.

Iceberg lettuce does not cause an issue.

I was working on Dark Bishop: Metatron’s Army Book 7 (and itching away) when I had the thought to listen to heavy metal music.  My logic was that if the calcium is responsible for the itching – and it is happening because of EMFs – then using an EMF remedy should stop the itching.  By the beginning of the second song the itching had ceased. 

 I played two full songs and part of a third from my EMF list before declaring the initial test a success and turning off the music so I could return to the manuscript. 

I recognize that this is preliminary, but it is definitely consistent with my observation that heavy metal music eliminates certain symptoms of EMF Sensitivity and since excess calcium contributes to, if not directly causes, EMF Sensitivity, I am satisfied that the test proved my point.

 I think it the highest of irony that heavy metal music helps with heavy metal toxicity symptoms.

Here’s Why!  The reason heavy metal music works for EMF Sensitivity symptoms is pretty straight forward.  Ultra-low and very low electromagnetic frequencies are sound waves.  They were “hijacking” my brain.  My solution?  Introduce a different sound wave to cancel them out.

Simple physics.

The music is a remedy.  The cure comes from detoxifying the heavy metals, including excess calcium, and replacing depleted nutrients.

The Catch-22 of Electrolyte Balance

4seat-see-sawA reader contacted me with a very astute observation.  Since I believe the information is of value to a wider audience, I will respond in a post.  I will begin, however, by pointing out that this is a very complex situation as it involves the interrelationship between several nutrients that are electrolytes.  I will do my best to explain it in a simplified manner, but the truth is, it’s a complex aspect of nutritional balancing.

From the email:

Just a thought/brainstorm on your bakingsode/calcium and potassium/EMF’s posts:

Increased potassium intake is associated with calcium urinary retention:

Therefore it seems that sodium bicarbonate is the preferred method and not potassium bicarbonate (it could have been that the bicarbonate was the main item that worked but due to this research it does not seem that way).

However, higher sodium intake lowers potassium levels as it directly affects the sodium/potassium equilibrium.

Therefore higher sodium intake most likely leads to higher EMF susceptibility.

Therefore attacking hard water with high calcium with sodium may lead to higher EMF susceptibility.

And attacking EMF susceptibility with potassium leads to higher calcium retention and all of its negative effects.

This seems like a catch22 (unless for moving to a soft water location).

He brings up excellent points.

Up and Down on the Playground.  This goes to that teeter totter relationship that I’ve written about.  Imagine a nutrient (say, sodium) on one side and it’s on the ground while the other side (potassium) is up – because there isn’t enough of it.  If you want to bring balance you can attack it in multiple ways.  You could remove some of the sodium until there is balance or you could add potassium until there is balance.

I’m sure others could come up with other methods as well.

When it comes to the minerals involved in EMF Sensitivity, there is a catch-22 for the simple reason that there are more than two components needing balance.

Each side of that teeter totter is connected to other teeter totters.

As I write in Calcium: The Old Man Mineral and Its Role in EMF Sensitivity, excess calcium can wreak havoc with our health.  Therefore, in addressing the specific symptoms, it is necessary to reduce excess calcium.

Either by removing some or by adding its counter component.  Just one little detail… there’s more than one counter component!

Calcium is a mineral, a metal, an electrolyte.  Here are the other electrolytes:

  • Sodium
  • Potassium
  • Chloride
  • Phosphate

You cannot upset the balance of one without affecting the others.  This means that you have multiple connected teeter totters going up and down helter-skelter as you work to bring them into balance.

All Bets Are Off.  Interestingly, the problem I ran into after moving to a soft water location was that, in spite of continuing the baking soda to address the excess calcium, I ended up low in sodium.

Horribly low.

I believe it ironic because one of the nutritional myths is that people who are worried about sodium intake shouldn’t use baking soda.  However, as Dr. Sircus writes, that is not necessarily the case.

Rather than reinvent the wheel on this, I suggest reading his material.

I eat a very low sodium diet by nature.  I also eat potassium rich foods.  This led to a nasty situation wherein I had to increase my sodium intake.

NOT through ingesting sodium bicarbonate!

I made the mistake of drinking an electrolyte drink that was higher in potassium – worsening the symptoms associated with the low sodium, most notably dizziness and a nasty ringing in my ears.  Upon increasing my sodium intake, the ringing ceased and the dizziness went away.

So, yes, there is a catch-22 with balancing electrolytes because you can easily throw off other electrolytes.  It’s definitely a complex situation.

Location matters!  As I write in Calcium: The Old Man Mineral and Its Role in EMF Sensitivity, the therapy one uses while living in an area with hard water will yield different results than when living in an area without it.

For me, the therapies, including homeopathy and probiotics, were ineffective.  In my situation, the probiotics were a total disaster in such an environment and it took months to straighten that mess out.

Yes, low potassium increases EMF Sensitivity but I actually ended up with low sodium through the bicarbonate therapy.

My potassium was too high relative to sodium.  Go figure.

The interrelationship between the electrolytes is complex and needs to be managed carefully.  For me, the baking soda therapy was indeed the most effective at removing the excess calcium but yes, it brought with it some unfortunate side effects.  I addressed those as quickly as I became aware of them but it took awhile for me to figure out that my symptoms were due to low sodium and not low potassium.

About 36 hours.

Tricky business.  Detoxing and rebuilding nutritional balance is an incredibly complex venture and I adamantly encourage people who are not knowledgeable to consult with a health care professional when starting on the path.

Especially, if you take any medication or have specific health issues that need to be considered.

 It can be incredibly frustrating, and it is hard work.

You will find yourself saying “Now what?!” more often than you care for. 

However, when you restore nutritional balance, your symptoms resolve and the sensitivity to EMFs disappears.

At least, it did for me.

Return of the Suffering.  The symptoms and sensitivity will return if balance is knocked out again, so it is imperative that you determine how it got out of balance to begin with.

Many medications deplete valuable nutrients – and electrolytes in particular.

In my situation, the damage from excess calcium led me to take action.  Unfortunately, due to that catch-22, I did experience other [temporary] electrolyte imbalances.

For me, it was absolutely worth the temporary discomfort. 

I addressed these imbalances as soon as I became aware of them!

Detox is complex too!  The gentleman also asked me to comment on the rigorous detoxification I undertook.  I comment more on this in Wipeout EMF Sensitivity, the Challenge of Curing Autoimmune Disease.  In summary, you need to be very careful when doing a rigorous detox because you can really throw off your electrolyte balance if you aren’t careful.  The most effective way to approach, in my opinion, is as follows:

  • Stop ingesting the problem

This requires determining what is causing the problem and dealing with it.

  • Use nutritious food to replenish nutrients

Use supplements sparingly and get off of them as soon as possible.

  •  Take other steps as appropriate

Only you can determine if colonics or infrared or other therapies associated with detoxification are appropriate for you.  

I have found that inundating the body with good nutrition in the absence of the toxins is an effective way to get the toxic environment turned around, retoring health.

The minerals will displace the metals.

The key is to discontinue ingesting the toxin that caused the issue(s) in the first place.

You absolutely have to determine how you were exposed.  Find the source and either stop ingesting it or move the hell away from it.

Did You Say MOVE?  That might be what it takes.  Is it hard?  You bet!  Is it ideal?  No!  You may have to turn your life upside down in order to deal with the source of the toxins, but I do not know – in all honesty – any other way to ensure you can fully heal.

And stay healthy. 

Unique.  As a final comment, I wish to point out that my body chemistry is unique to me.  I customized everything to address my particular situation.  I gathered information, considered what I was dealing with, and mapped out a plan.  I adapted the plan as appropriate for each member of my family, taking into consideration their individual needs.

I also considered their age, weight, sex, and how much of various toxins they were exposed to.

There is no quick fix.

The remedies I discovered and share in Riding the Waves: Diagnosing, Treating, and Living with EMF Sensitivity can ease the symptoms so that you can address the underlying issue without the stress of suffering the symptoms as you do so.  Desperation can lead you to make poor choices so I encourage people to ease the symptoms when they can and address the underlying cause in order to restore health and end the sensitivity.

EMF Sensitivity in the Rear View Mirror

rear-view-mirrorOn Saturday, January 20, I was fortunate to be a guest on Dr. Susan Kolb’s Temple of Health Radio Show.  We discussed my book Riding the Waves: Diagnosing, Treating, and Living with EMF Sensitivity.  It was an honor to have the opportunity to educate people about the little understood and often disbelieved health condition of sensitivity to electromagnetic frequencies.

Yes, it’s real!

Dr. Kolb was intrigued by the idea of sensitivity to geomagnetic frequencies, and specifically, the ultra-low and very low frequencies (ULFs and VLFs) that come from the earth’s fault lines.

These frequencies increase in number and strength in the days and weeks prior to an earthquake.  Those who are sensitive to these frequencies may find themselves feeling dizzy, nauseated, and fatigued during this time period.

In preparation for the show, I reread the book.  I had mixed emotions as memories of how sick I was surfaced.  However, I couldn’t help but realize just how far I’ve come.  Not only am I no longer sickened by electromagnetic frequencies, I understand why I became EMF Sensitive to begin with.

I mentioned it on the show.

What stands out most after my discussion with Dr. Kolb is that many people could be suffering from EMF Sensitivity and not realize it.  This is because, as I write in Riding the Waves, the symptoms are generic and could be attributed to a variety of conditions, including MCS, SAD, and other autoimmune conditions.  This makes identifying EMF Sensitivity a challenge.

It occurred to me during the show that the real value of my book – aside from educating people on the subject of EMF Sensitivity and introducing them to remedies that bring relief from the associated life-altering and often debilitating symptoms – is the blueprint it provides for the investigative work that is required to determine whether or not you are suffering from EMF Sensitivity.

I believe this is particularly important because if you are misdiagnosed – or if your child is misdiagnosed – you (he/she) could be unnecessarily medicated which can bring a host of issues through side effects and potential nutrient deficiency impact.

And won’t address the problem.

Many of the symptoms associated with ADD and ADHD actually signal EMF Sensitivity which does not require medication to treat.

None of the remedies require a prescription.  They are inexpensive, easy to access, and do not require a physician’s “permission” to implement.

Those are the remedies.  The cure is a different story.

Sort of.

The root.  Exposure to heavy metal toxins led to my EMF Sensitivity.

Definitely environmental.

 The metals displaced critical nutrients such as magnesium, and potassium which affected my electrolyte balance as well as my immune system.  In order to cure the condition, I had to detoxify the heavy metals and restore nutritional balance. 

Not easy!

 During the discussion, Dr. Kolb provided important insight into the challenges of detoxification, and it is for this reason I have continued to urge people to work with a trained health professional when taking this step.  But first, you need to know what you’re dealing with.  This is why that detective work that I so painstakingly carried out is critical.

You do not want to be treating the wrong issue!

 As I write in Calcium: The Old Man Mineral and Its Role in EMF Sensitivity, I continue to live in EMF Land.  However, I am not suffering there.  Now, I’m an interested observer who continues to research in order to better understand the condition that turned my life inside out.

A Holistic Mess.  There is no aspect of life that isn’t impacted by EMF Sensitivity.

  • Body

 Aches, migraines, burning watery eyes, ungodly fatigue.

  •  Mind

 Depression, hopelessness, procrastination, racy mind, difficulty concentrating.

  •  Spirit

 Feeling spiritually disconnected, loss of sixth sense abilities – including intuition. **

 This is why it is so critical that the condition be identified and measures taken to resolve it.

The information in Riding the Waves: Diagnosing, Treating, and Living with EMF Sensitivity will definitely help you identify whether or not you are suffering from EMF Sensitivity.

 One size does not fit all.  Some people will not be able to take the steps necessary to cure the condition.  Perhaps they have damaged glands and/or organs and need to take medication.  That doesn’t mean that they cannot take steps toward improving the quality of their lives.

Most of the remedies can be used by anyone and have zero side effects as they are not ingested.

Educate yourself.  When I was growing up, my father taught me that when you are afraid of something, it is a good idea to learn as much as you can about the subject.

Knowledge is power.

My material is written to educate, not only those who may be suffering from EMF Sensitivity, but also their care providers.

Doctors are invaluable consultants though ultimately, individuals are responsible for their well-being.

Life can be good!

Temple of Health Radio Talk Show

decoration-spa-bamboo-green-stonesIt is my pleasure to announce that I will be talking with Dr. Susan Kolb on her Temple of Health Radio Show this Saturday, January 20, beginning at noon EST.

We will be discussing EMF Sensitivity and my book Riding the Waves: Diagnosing, Treating, and Living with EMF Sensitivity.

 Dr. Kolb, MD, FACS has years of experience treating patients holistically.  Her show brings a perfect balance of viewpoints highlighting not only the role of body, mind, and spirit in health, but also the importance of each.

For people who are not familiar with Dr. Kolb’s show, I encourage you to visit her site and listen to earlier shows.  Dr. Kolb and her guests bring a wealth of information that is invaluable for those seeking good health.

I found myself nodding repeatedly when listening to many of her guests speak of the complex interrelated factors that are at the root of disease.

In addition to my book Riding the Waves, I recently released Calcium: The Old Man Mineral and its Role in EMF Sensitivity.
