I don’t know about you guys but do you feel worse when you’ve been looking at your phone or laptop too long? Technology is wonderful but it does give off electromagnetic fields that effect us on a cellular level. When you have cfs/me or similar, we seem to be extra sensitive. I know I feel the effects of electromagnetic stress when I’ve been on my phone too long. It can cause physical & mental issues including headaches, brain fog & memory issues. I can feel extremely wired & tired & causes pins & needles & all over pain to be worse. it can be hard to avoid for those of us who are predominantly house bound & have to shop online. Our phones are often our lifeline & only contact with the outside world. Or even if you are well enough to work it often means being surrounded with technology. At home we mostly tent to have WiFi in our homes plus lots of electrical appliances & gadgets- microwaves being the worst!
So, Here are a few tips I found to help reduce the effects:- Always turn off anything electrical at the switch rather than leaving on standby where you can. (It also saves on electric!) reduce the time you spend looking at phones, laptops pc’s etc (if they effect you) or try to space it out. Never sleep with your phone next to your bed. Or if you have to keep it nearby put it on flight mode. Other tips I’ve read about include getting out in nature- that being the best thing as can help to disperse the negative effects of technology. I know not always possible & also weather permitting. Tree hugging apparently helps to ground us. (If you’re lucky enough to have trees around) and walking bare foot. I’d only do that in summer as my feet are always freeeeezing! Being in contact with nature is so good for us so if you have pets they can really help to ground us.
There are things you can buy to help eliminate the effects. Things you can put in your home & stickers to put on your phone. They are pricey & really not sure if they do work but may be worth a try. I realise most of you know this stuff, but sometimes a gentle little reminder can help 😁
