You may have heard that electromagnetic fields (EMFs) are the cause of symptoms like cancer, insomnia and fatigue, but what can you do to protect yourself? Geobiologist and EMF expert, Roy Riggs shares the dangers of electromagnetic fields and the key steps you can take to reduce your exposure and improve your health.
Electromagnetic fields...it may sound like a bunch of mumbo-jumbo, but they are VERY real.
In fact, Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) can cause symptoms of illness in infants, children and adults, particularly those who already experience low immunity.
If you are sensitive to EMFs, you may experience symptoms like:1
Electromagnetic fields are areas of energy that surround electronic devices. The World Health Organization (WHO) explains that the electric fields are created by differences in voltage and magnetic fields are created when the electric current flows.3
According to WHO, electromagnetic fields affect us because our human bodies have their own electric and biochemical responses (e.g., nervous system, digestion, brain function, heart function). So exposure to EMFs can interact with your body in adverse ways.
Where Do Electromagnetic Fields Come From?
Simply put, EMFs come from electricity:
Most of our modern-day conveniences emit EMFs, some stronger than others. So does this mean you have to go off the grid?
Not at all! But if you are serious about achieving and maintaining your best health, there are several steps you can take to minimize the effect EMFs have on you and your family.
If you or someone in your family is on a healing journey, chances are you want to give them the best foot forward to recover. Minimizing or eliminating EMFs is even more important in these situations because if immunity is already low, EMFs can make it harder to recover.
If you are feeling well already, EMFs may cause annoying symptoms, like insomnia or headaches, which get in the way of good health.
To find out what you can do to reduce or eliminate EMFs, we went straight to expert, Roy Riggs.
We first learned about Roy Riggs from a member of the Body Ecology team, who had Roy do an assessment on her home so that her family could reduce their exposure to EMFs.
Roy Riggs is a Geobiologist and professional dowser. Geobiology (also called Bau-biologie, which means Building Biology in Germany) is the science of specific location and disease and focuses on how your house and immediate environment can make you ill due to both electromagnetic and geopathic stress.
According to Roy, the biggest offenders in most homes are typically wireless Internet (WiFi) and cordless phones. Baby monitors, often in homes with newborns, also give off high EMFs.
Key to Roy’s work is scientific testing of the electromagnetic fields.
When he does a home assessment, he shows his clients the difference between the earth’s healing electromagnetic fields and the EMFs that produce negative health results. He also tests each family member’s physical exposure to the EMFs in their home. From there, he works with them to create a plan to reduce EMFs.
Roy says, “I show my clients what happens by measuring their body voltage with the earth’s natural voltage. When you are outside, your body comes into resonance with the earth’s natural voltage. When you walk into your house, your body is actually the most conductive thing in your house, which means the EMFs are attracted right to you...and your voltage shoots up. My equipment shows that change.”
We can’t see or hear EMFs on our own, but with Roy’s scientific testing equipment, his clients can actually see how strong EMFs are AND hear the noise chaos that they create.
Roy has also been hired to assess homes prior to purchase, which is a great benefit because some homes have particularly high EMFs that are less easily controlled, like proximity to cell phone masts (towers), electricity substations, power lines or transformers.
Expert Tips from Roy Riggs: How to Reduce EMFs in Your Home
Here are Roy’s expert tips to reduce EMFs in your home:
If you look out your window but can’t see the masts because they are obstructed by other buildings then the power density will be mainly absorbed by those buildings and too low to worry about.
If the substation is immediately next to your home there is little in a practical sense you can do to reduce the magnetic fields. You could purchase or rent a meter in the UK or purchase an affordable TriField EX100 Meter in the US to check out the field levels.
Unless the substation is immediately adjacent to your house the EMFs from these small street substations fall to background levels within 5-6 meters.
There are several meters you can purchase to measure the fields from power lines near your home.
If you live in the US or Canada, you may want to look into shielding devices to reduce EMFs from your cell phones, cordless phones and landline speaker phones.
You don’t need WiFi in the home, school or office. A far more efficient and environmentally friendly set-up would be to buy a hard wired router such as a Linksys Cable/DSL Router or Netgear ADLS2 Modem Router with 4 port 10/100 Mbps Switch (DG834) together with a dLan High speed Ethernet Installation starter kit from www.devolo.com . This will enable you to route the internet signal through your house ring circuit enabling you to use as many computers a you want from any room with full internet connection without the WI-FI.
Sounds complicated but is surprisingly inexpensive simple to set up and use.
If you go to my website: www.royriggs.co.uk and click on Baby Monitors on my home page you will find a couple of recommendations where you can still get non digital baby alarms, which do the same thing without the microwaves.
Bedside clocks usually have the transformers inside the clock housing. Most others are usually black and look like big 3 point plugs and are hot to touch.
Make sure all transformers are at least two feet away from you body.
Following all the above advice will make an immense difference to you and your families health.
In addition to these great tips from Roy Riggs, you can also look into personal and home shielding solutions to protect you from EMFs in your home or outdoors.
We are grateful that there are professionals like Roy Riggs, who use science to help us heal from modern-day technology.
About Roy Riggs:
After a career in forestry and police services, Roy Riggs entered the field of Geobiology and professional dowsing. He studied environmental science at the Open University and in December 1998 obtained his B.Sc degree.
Roy took further studies in the field of dowsing and geobiology in Germany with biophysicist Dr. Luger Mersmann and Adolf Packeiser a graduate from the Institute for Research in Geobiology. He is certified by the International Institute for Building Biology and Ecology as an electromagnetic energy consultant. He is also a professional Earth Energy dowser and has had articles published in both the Namaste magazine, The British Society of Dowsers quarterly journal and the Institute of Geology and Geography Vilnius Lithuania.
Roy continues to commit himself to the study and health consequences of both natural and manmade electromagnetic environments. He has undergone joint research with Keith Jamieson at Imperial College of Environmental Science London on the issue of the Earth’s natural energy field and is a guest lecturer at London Westminster University’s School of Integrative Medicine, The British College of Osteopathic Medicine, the Royal Homeopathic Hospital London, Foresight- (The Association of Preconceptual Care), and is a member of the science committee for The Baltic Dowser’s Association Lithuania.
