There are a multitude of ways that EMF radiation affects our health, but there are a few specific ways that it affects our sleep:
EMF radiation and melatonin production.
First of all, EMF radiation affects sleep because it is known to reduce the amount of melatonin we produce. The Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Melbourne has conducted a study on this very point.
They found that EMFs interfere with the body’s production of melatonin, the hormone that regulates our sleep and wakefulness. The main reason is that the pineal gland (the organ that produces melatonin and other hormones) interprets the electrical nature of EMF radiation as a source of light. Thinking that it is still light outside, or in the room, it limits our production of melatonin in an effort to combat this.
The summary of the studies ends with :
“…the results show the importance of melatonin disruption due to exposure to low EMFs, which may eventually lead to long-term effects on human health.”
So we know that electromagnetic radiation can affect the quantity and quality of our sleep. Knowing this, it is easy to understand the effect of bleeding on our health.
Sleep is extremely important for our body to be able to repair and renew itself. During sleep, the cells regenerate and detoxify, and without adequate sleep, they are not able to complete this work. When our cells are not healthy, it also affects our organs and their ability to do their work.
Unhealthy cells can also sometimes lead to mutations and neural disorders. It is not for nothing that when companies that manufacture EMC protection products advertise their products, they often show cells before and after the use of their products.
Not only are our cells disturbed when we do not sleep, but EMC radiation can also have a direct effect on our cells. In a study by the Weston A Price Foundation, they clearly showed that radiation from cell phones affects our body’s ability to produce healthy cells.
In addition to all this, studies have also shown that exposure to EMF can disrupt our circadian rhythm (our body’s internal clock) and significantly reduce the quality of our sleep.
EMF radiation that disrupts the circadian rhythm
A 2012 study published in the Iranian Journal of Science and Engineering found that employees in high-voltage substations had significantly worse sleep patterns due to frequent exposure to EMF during working hours. The study looked specifically at the quality of sleep, not just the quantity.
So it’s quite reasonable to assume that when we sleep through the night but wake up feeling drowsy, or we haven’t had a good rest, that EMF radiation could be responsible and certainly should be investigated.
In 2007, the World Health Organization published Monograph 238 on Environmental Health Criteria. The purpose of this document was to summarize research on EMF radiation and its effects on human health. Chapter 5 (5.2.5 specifically) summarizes previous research with the following additions
“Sleep is a complex biological process controlled by the central nervous system and is necessary for general health and well-being. The possibility that EMFs may have an adverse effect on sleep was examined in two studies. Using the EEG to assess sleep parameters, Åkerstedt et al. (1999) reported that continuous exposure of healthy volunteers to 50 Hz at 1 µT at night resulted in sleep disturbances. In this study, total sleep duration, sleep efficiency, slow wave sleep (stages III and IV) and slow wave activity were significantly reduced by exposure, as was the subjective depth of sleep. Graham & Cook (1999) reported that intermittent, but not continuous, exposure to 60 Hz, 28 µT magnetic fields at night resulted in decreased total sleep time, reduced sleep efficiency, increased stage II sleep time, decreased rapid eye movement (REM) sleep time and increased latency to the first REM period. Consistent with a poor and interrupted sleep pattern, volunteers exposed to the intermittent field also reported sleeping less well and feeling less rested in the morning”.
All right, now that we’ve gone into the details of how EMF radiation affects our sleep, let’s talk a little bit about how to combat this.
Obviously, our primary goal will be to reduce EMF radiation in the bedroom.
How to Reduce EMF Radiation in the Bedroom and Improve Sleep
Putting your mobile phone in airplane mode
Cut the Wifi from your internet box
Do not use LED bulbs in bedrooms.
Do not charge the phone at a nearby electrical outlet.
Don’t put your phone under your pillow… even in airplane mode.
The same effects can be achieved by wearing our Body Guard bracelet, equipped with the only globally patented technology that has proven its effectiveness.
