What is EMF?

Electric and magnetic fields (EMF) are invisible lines of force that surround any electrical device that is plugged in and turned on. EMF are made up of waves of electric and magnetic energy moving together (radiating) through space. Electric fields are produced by electric charges and magnetic fields are produced by the flow of current through wires or electrical devices.
The potentially harmful electromagnetic field set up by alternating currents, (A.C. electricity, which runs all of our electrical appliances), interferes with our own energy field and nervous system, which is direct current. Our electro-magnetic energy is life itself.
Many people are sensitive to EMF causing sluggishness, have headaches, fatigue, nausea, dizziness, irritability, eye strain, rashes, or just feel generally ill when they work in front of computers or under florescent lights. They may never feel as good as they would like to. It may be this electromagnetic pollution causing these feelings.

Test for yourself. Stand and put your arm straight out in front of you. Have someone push down on your arm and see how strong it is. Then turn on a hand-held hair dryer and hold it next to your body. Or stand close in front of a computer or television that is turned on and test again. You'll probably find your arm gets completely weak. This is what is happening to your whole body when your normal energy (electrical) field is being bombarded day in and day out by these electric alternating currents.
Certain equipment has been developed to protect our magnetic field. Small multi polar magnets can be worn under your clothing, larger units can be placed in your home, and even devices to protect us from cell phone EMF.
