Mankind has evolved over millions of years surrounded by the natural electromagnetic radiation from the sun and the magnetic and electric fields of the earth. Part of the natural electric field of the earth are "Schumann Waves". These are very long waves of extremely, low frequency, which are present everywhere in the atmosphere on this planet. Schumann Waves have been identified as part of the natural electromagnetic radiation, which is particularly important for life on this planet. The human brain also resonates with these atmospheric waves. NASA has studied these Schumann Waves extensively and has recognized the importance of these waves for human health. Space Shuttles, leaving our atmosphere, are equipped with artificial Schumann wave generators to simulate the natural electromagnetic environment of the earth. Schumann discovered that within this atmosphere an electromagnetic field oscillates at a resonant frequency of 7 to 10 beats per second. This is identical to the optimal functioning of human brain waves.
However, since man's artificial electrification of our planet, our atmosphere is not only filled with natural Schumann Wave radiation, but also with unnatural radiation such as electromagnetic pollution. All electrical appliances and electronic devices produce damaging electromagnetic fields (EMFs) or radiations, including communications, power lines and the network of frequencies used for broadcasting.
All appliances, computers, TV's, cell phones, radios, digital devices, air conditioners, lighting, power lines, communication lines, air waves, radio waves produce damaging electromagnetic fields (EMF's or ELF's - see details and chart below*), which we can‘t see but may feel in the form of stress, headaches, sleeplessness, and moodiness, among other more chronic and debilitating symptoms. These frequencies interfere with the body‘s own electromagnetic operating system thus causing abnormal conditions and stress.
Cell phones can be particularly damaging, because they are used and carried in close contact with the body and even the brain. Furthermore, the radiation emitted is of microwave frequency, which more and more research is showing to be particularly damaging to human health.
Computer monitors and Television screens emit a "cocktail" of frequencies ranging from extremely low rays to X-rays. The real danger here is from long term exposure, those people working several hours a day at the computer or for prolonged periods of television viewing.
Some studies show that DNA is actually being significantly effected by harmful frequencies. Ionizing electromagnetic radiation carries enough energy per photon to break bonds in the genetic material of the cell, the DNA. Severe damage to DNA can kill cells, resulting in tissue damage or death. Lesser damage to DNA can result in permanent changes which may lead to cancer. If these changes occur in reproductive cells, they can also lead to inherited changes (mutation). All of the known human health hazards from exposure to the ionizing portion of the electromagnetic spectrum are the result of the breaking of chemical bonds in DNA. For frequencies below that of hard UV, DNA damage does not occur because the photons do not have enough energy to break chemical bonds.
Independent scientific tests have confirmed that certain products have a significantly protective effect against exposure to electromagnetic fields and radiations from cell phones, televisions and computers. Other long term results confirm that shifts in weather, brain function, insomnia and other symptoms are reduced when Orgonite/Orgone or Pulsed Magnetics are used in an EMF polluted environment.
Manmade EMFs paralyze the body's electrically based healing system interrupting sleep and natural rest and rejuvenation patterns. The healing currents of this DC based nervous system are traditionally called the acupuncture meridian system. The meridians are constricted and rendered less effective by the AC electrical system. By freeing the meridian system from chronic stress, EMF protective devices support the body to fully heal itself by nature's design. Go to BioCera Wellness EcoTech
Shielding or protection from these fields and radiations is difficult because they are everywhere around us and very difficult to block entirely. Therefore here at Enviro-Health-Tech, we have adopted the approach of counteracting these damaging radiations by strengthening beneficial energy within our bodies and throughout our immediate environment.
We offer a variety of products which combat and reduce the effects of negative energy interference by reducing, transmuting, resonating or neutralizing electromagnetic stress, geopathic stress, frequency waves, air wave pollution, receiver towers, electrical poles and electronic devices, including communications lines and the network of frequencies used for broadcasting.

An importance of grounding the human body to the earth has become more prevalent in recent years. Grounding in this context has also been called ‘earthing.’ Earthing or grounding is important for human health in two fundamental senses.
The AC electrical system that we live in has weakened our
connection to the earth by inducing biologically meaningless currents into our
bodies. These currents interfere with our attunement to the earth, thus robbing
us of a myriad of signals for optimal biological functioning.
Resonance is created when one frequency
rises or lowers to come into rest with another frequency. The power of the
principle of resonance is such that each frequency is changed by the presence of
the other frequency until a form of union is established. Resonance will be
established by the lowering of one frequency or the rising of the other until a
flow of energy and information is established that allows for a reciprocal
exchange. To understand Resonance we must expand our notion of people as objects
in space and time that are unconnected to each other and unconnected to the
earth. The new vision sees each person as an EMF field embedded within the EMF
field of the earth.
Resonator & Home Protector circuitry when worn on the body or introduced into the AC system of a home, neutralizes the induction and strengthens the resonance between the nervous system and the earth's electromagnetic field, thus breaking the resonance between you and your AC wiring.

Georges Lakhovsky was a Polish scientist
who in the 1920s experimented with using electricity as a way to heal people of
cancer. He wrote "The Secret of Life", in which he offered one of the first
conceptualizations of the electromagnetic qualities of the earth. He theorized
for instance that birds took migratory clues from voltage differences in the
earth’s atmosphere. He also attempted to understand the electromagnetics of
underground rivers and different rock formations, coining the term geopathic
stress. He suggested that certain geological features such as soil composition
or underground rivers might have negative impacts on human health.
X-rays, ultraviolet (UV) light, visible light, infrared light (IR), microwaves (MW), radio-frequency (RF) energy, and magnetic fields from electric power systems are all parts of the electromagnetic (EM) spectrum. The parts of the electromagnetic spectrum are characterized by their frequency or wavelength. The frequency and wavelength are related, and as the frequency rises the wavelength gets shorter. The frequency is the rate at which the electromagnetic field goes through one complete oscillation (cycle) and is usually given in Hertz (Hz), where one Hz is one cycle per second.
Power-frequency fields in the US vary 60 times per second (60 Hz), and have a wavelength of 5,000 km. Power in most of the rest of the world is at 50 Hz. Broadcast AM radio has a frequency of around 10^6 (1,000,000) Hz and a wavelength of around 300 m. Most microwave ovens have a frequency of 2.54 x 10^9 Hz, and a wavelength of about 12 cm. X-rays have frequencies above 10^15 Hz, and wavelengths of less than 100 nanometers.
For this explanation, the term "power frequency" will refer to both the 50- and 60-Hz alternating current (AC) frequencies used in electric power systems, and the term "power frequency field" to refer to the sinusoidal electric and magnetic fields produced by 50- and 60-Hz lines and devices.
Power-frequency fields are also properly referred to as extremely low frequency (or ELF) fields.
In general, electromagnetic sources produce both radiant energy (radiation) and non-radiant fields. Radiation travels away from its source, and continues to exist even if the source is turned off. In contrast, some electric and magnetic fields exist near an electromagnetic source that are not projected into space, and that cease to exist when the energy source is turned off.
The fact that exposure to power-frequency fields occurs at distances that are much shorter than the wavelength of 50/60-Hz radiation has important implications, because under such conditions (called "near-field"), the electric and magnetic fields can be treated as independent entities. This is in contrast to electromagnetic radiation, in which the electric and magnetic fields are linked.
The interaction of biological material with an electromagnetic source depends on the frequency of the source. We usually talk about the electromagnetic spectrum as though it produced waves of energy. However, sometimes electromagnetic energy acts like particles rather than waves, particularly at high frequencies. The particle nature of electromagnetic energy is important because it is the energy per particle (or photons, as these particles are called) that determines what biological effects electromagnetic energy will have.
At the very high frequencies characteristic of "vacuum" UV and X-rays (less than 100 nanometers), electromagnetic particles (photons) have sufficient energy to break chemical bonds. This breaking of bonds is termed ionization, and this part of the electromagnetic spectrum is termed ionizing. The well-known biological effects of X-rays are associated with the ionization of molecules. At lower frequencies, such as those characteristic of visible light and radio-frequencies, the energy of a photon is very much below those needed to disrupt chemical bonds. This part of the electromagnetic spectrum is termed non-ionizing. Because non-ionizing electromagnetic energy cannot break chemical bonds there is no analogy between the biological effects of ionizing and nonionizing electromagnetic energy.
Non-ionizing electromagnetic sources can produce biological effects. Many of the biological effects of ultraviolet (UV), visible, and infrared (IR) frequencies depend on the photon energy, but they involve electronic excitation rather than ionization, and do not occur at frequencies below that of infrared (IR) light (below 3 x 10^11 Hz). Radio-frequency and microwaves sources can cause effects by inducing electric currents in tissues, which cause heating. The efficiency with which a nonionizing electromagnetic source can induce electric currents, and thus produce heating, depends on the frequency of the source, and the size and orientation of the object being heated. At frequencies below that used for broadcast AM radio (about 10^6 Hz), electromagnetic sources couple poorly with the bodies of humans and animals, and thus are very inefficient at inducing electric currents and causing heating.
Thus in terms of potential biological effects the electromagnetic spectrum can be divided into four portions (see diagram ofelectromagnetic spectrum above):
The electric fields associated with the power-frequency sources exist whenever voltage is present, and regardless of whether current is flowing. These electric fields have very little ability to penetrate buildings or even skin. The magnetic fields associated with power-frequency sources exist only when current is flowing. These magnetic fields are difficult to shield, and easily penetrate buildings and people. Because power-frequency electric fields do not penetrate the body, it is generally assumed that any biologic effect from residential exposure to power-frequency fields must be due to the magnetic component of the field, or to the electric fields and currents that these magnetic fields induce in the body.
The argument that biological effects of power-frequency fields must be due to the magnetic component of the field was the subject of some debate in the late 1990's. In particular, King argued that the electrical fields from power lines do penetrate most buildings, and that the electrical currents induced in the body by power line electrical fields may be greater than those induced by power line magnetic fields.
At power frequencies, the photon energy is a factor of 10^10 smaller than that needed to break even the weakest chemical bond. There are, however, well-established mechanisms by which power-frequency electric and magnetic fields could produce biological effects without breaking chemical bonds. Power-frequency electric fields can exert forces on charged and uncharged molecules or cellular structures within a tissue. These forces can cause movement of charged particles, orient or deform cellular structures, orient dipolar molecules, or induce voltages across cell membranes. Power-frequency magnetic fields can exert forces on cellular structures; but since biological materials are largely nonmagnetic these forces are usually very weak.
Power-frequency magnetic fields can also cause biological effects via the electric fields that they induce in the body. These electric and magnetic forces occur in the presence of random thermal agitation (thermal noise) and electric noise from many sources; and to cause significant changes in a biological system applied fields must generally far exceed those that exist in typical environmental exposure conditions.
No absolute answers can be provided, but certain general conclusions can be drawn from the existing science:
Regardless of the science, the public controversy remains. This is seen in the continuing litigation over cancers that are alleged to have been caused by exposure to power-frequency fields, and by the public opposition that meets almost all attempts to site or upgrade power lines. The public concern is sustained by uneven reporting on this issue by the mass media, by the inability of scientists to guarantee that no risk exists, and by statements from scientists and government officials that more research is needed. This public concern is further encouraged by lay-oriented books that allege that there has been a conspiracy to conceal the health risks of power-frequency fields .
A syndrome, now called "sensitivity of electricity" or "electrosensitivity" first appeared in Norway in the early 1980's among users of VDTs; and in Sweden "the problem [had] grown to epidemic proportions" by the mid-90's. By 1999, there were reports of the syndrome from many parts of the world. Initial reports were largely of a transient skin reaction, but in more recent years the syndrome has included central nervous system, respiratory, cardiovascular and digestive symptoms. In double-blind studies published to date, patients with self-reported "sensitivity of electricity" have been unable to consistently sense whether a masked source was on or off; and no difference in the physiological response to power-frequency magnetic fields have been shown between persons claiming "electromagnetic hypersensitivity" and normal volunteers. In a 1999 review, Silny observes that:
A principal mechanism by which radiofrequency radiation and microwaves cause biological effects is by heating (thermal effects). This heating can kill cells. If enough cells are killed, burns and other forms of long-term, and possibly permanent tissue damage can occur. Cells which are not killed by heating gradually return to normal after the heating ceases; permanent non-lethal cellular damage is not known to occur. At the whole-animal level, tissue injury and other thermally-induced effects can be expected when the amount of power absorbed by the animal is similar to or exceeds the amount of heat generated by normal body processes. Some of these thermal effects are very subtle, and do not represent biological hazards.
Since thermal effects are produced by induced currents, not by the electric or magnetic fields directly, they can be produced by fields at many different frequencies. Well-accepted safety standards exist to prevent significant thermal damage to persons exposed to radiofrequency energy and microwaves, and also for persons exposed to lasers, infrared (IR) and ultraviolet (UV) light.
Some people are sensitive to (allergic to) the presence of power-frequency fields.In a 2005 paper, Rubin et al [L47] reviewed studies that has been done to assess whether people who report hypersensitivity to weak electromagnetic fields are better at detecting these fields under blind or double-blind conditions than nonhypersensitive individuals, and to test whether they respond to the presence of electromagnetic fields with increased symptom reporting. They were able to identify 31 studies involving 725 "electromagnetically hypersensitive" participants.
