EMF Reader Rental Program

emf readerElectromagnetic Frequencies (EMF), cause serious health consequences in as much as 8% of the population in developed countries. Some European countries have designated EMR-free zones for citizens afflicted by Electrohypersensitivity (EHS). Symptoms can be quite individualized, but may include headaches, heart palpitations, skin rashes, insomnia, tinnitus, nausea, anxiety, and brain-fog. People with chemical sensitivities, Lyme disease, Fibromyalgia, and autoimmune diseases, may be more sensitive to EMR.

For more information about EMFs, please review our previous blog posts. A check-list of exposure sources and additional website resources is available on our website, here.

Our Cornet EMF reader is available to current KIHC patients, for a weekly rental fee of $20 plus HST. Please ask your practitioner for details.

Electromagnetic radiation (EMR), such as what cell phones and WiFi internet routers emit, is a serious health risk. Rigorous scientific studies on the human health effects of chronic EMR exposure suggest significant impact on health ranging from mild sleep disturbances to increased rates of certain rare cancers and health conditions that mimic neurological illness and Lyme disease. The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS) as a genuine health condition and in 2011 their International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) listed EMR as a potential human carcinogen. Other nationalities, including Switzerland, China, Italy, and Russia, have set acceptable exposure limits to at least 1/100th of what Health Canada insists is safe in its well debated Safety Code 6. In fact, Health Canada does not recognize EHS as a health condition and states that their policies are based on current scientific studies that demonstrate “no effect” from EMR exposure. Clearly the safety of EMR lacks scientific consensus, yet WiFi continues to be installed in our elementary schools, cell phone towers continue to be erected in high-density residential areas, and hydro Smart Meters continue to be installed on many homes and businesses. Has Health Canada failed to adequately balance economic and health interests of Canadians?

Reduce Your Exposure

Cell and cordless phones

· Keep cell phones away from the body (e.g. not in your pocket or near your bed).

· Use speaker phone or text messaging when possible. Blue tooth attachments increase your EMR exposure so opt for an air-tube headset.

Healthy Human Electromagnetic Frequency (Energy) vs. Electromagnetic Frequency Pollution

~ Carol Belanger, BA, RM, BHS

Humans are composed of and influenced by energy. We usually express energy as having too much (hyper) or too little (fatigued) and not as electromagnetic frequency. All of the systems of our body use energy to function. A fluctuating energy level is normal, we naturally move between having greater and lesser amounts of energy in our daily life. Energy is measured electromagnetically. Some of the equipment used to measure our energy includes the EEG and EKG for nerve, brain, and heart function, and various other electrodiagnostic equipment.
