What are electromagnetic fields (EMF)? How do they affect the human body?

What’s measured is managed…

This tried and true statement works equally well for our financial reality and budgets, as it does for a low-EMF lifestyle.


I believe that it’s important to have a basic knowledge of the sources of EMF. As a child, I assumed that all was well as long as I stayed away from the microwave when it was in use. Years later, I had an “aha” moment when I realized that my daily EMF exposure came from multiple sources. I have a strong sense from talking with my community that I wasn’t alone in not realizing just how omnipresent EMF can be in our lives.


Here is a brief description of EMF: 

Electric and magnetic fields: are generated when electricity is traveling through electric wiring, from the use household appliances and from high-voltage transmission lines. 


Radio-frequency radiation (RF): is emitted by wireless technology including smartphones, tablets, WIFI, wireless baby monitors and wireless “smart meters”. 


Dirty Electricity: occurs in the form of harmonics created by dimmer switches, fluorescent lighting and electrical appliances. Dirty electricity (a type of static electricity) travels on electrical wiring and can permeate the living environment.


Symptoms of EMF exposure can include insomnia, headaches, dizziness, fatigue, memory problems and immune system dysfunction. 


But don’t despair! This sounds like a lot but please know that we’re all on a journey together. None of us are perfect, nor should we try to be. We simply need to be more mindful and take steps that will support a low-EMF lifestyle. 



I’m here to show you that path…
