Acupuncture – A Solution For EMF Sensitivity?

If you’d have told me 10 years ago that I would be going to see someone who I would pay to stick needles in my body, I would have said “no way jose!”.

Fortunately I got wise.

I guess it was the realization that traditional medicine could not provide me with a solution for my electrical sensitivity.

What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture for EMF protectionThe peoples and tribes of Asia believed that energy flows in the body, and it was an interruption of this flow that caused disease.  Over the succeeding centuries many treatises and documents were prepared by Chinese physicians concerning the use of acupuncture to treat diseases and injuries.

Originally, the edges of stone knives were pressed against what were determined as the appropriate pressure points, acupuncturists’ today use fine needles.

How Does Acupuncture Work?

The health of our bodies, according to the theory of acupuncture, is governed by the flow of ‘Qi’ (or chi), the flow of life energy.  This energy flows through the body in what might be considered rivers or streams, to deliver the life force to different organs and tissues.

It is when this normal, healthy flow is interrupted in some way that trouble begins.  The point behind acupuncture is that by using needles, and sometimes electrical stimulation, that the proper flow of energy can be restored.

Modern acupuncture uses sterile, disposable needles to cause the release of healing compounds within the body.  When the brain and spinal cord are stimulated by the acupuncture needles, endorphins are released to help deal with pain.  The immune system can also be boosted through acupuncture treatment.  It has also been found that various neurohormones will also be released during acupuncture therapy.  And, very importantly as regards cell phone radiation, neurotransmitters are also released, affecting the condition of the nervous system and blood among other things.

Acupuncture And EMFs

Not only are our brains extremely sensitive organs in and of themselves, but the brain also controls what happens in the rest of the body.  Connecting all parts of our organism to itself through the central nervous system, any imbalance or damage to the brain can cause problems to the rest of us.  Cell phone and microwave radiation has been linked to damage to the proper functioning of the brain, and therefore, will cause troubles in the rest of the tissues and organs.  Neural transmitters can easily be skewed by incoming radiation from a cell phone.  Once these are damaged, the signals that are supposed to be going to every part of the body can become tangled or even completely interrupted. This causes disease or “dis-ease” which may manifest itself in different ways in different people. In some people it may create electrosensitivity in others, it may cause cancer, fibromyalgia, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, etc.

How Acupuncture Works

Acupuncture focuses on restoring the proper flow of energy throughout the body.  I believe that this can be especially beneficial when cell phone radiation is disrupting the proper functioning of the brain.  By re-establishing the proper flow of life force to the body, acupuncture can help to overcome the deleterious effects of cell phone radiation.

Besides helping the brain and body to become in tune once again, acupuncture also helps to release neurohormones.  Neurohormones are released into the spinal fluid, nervous system, and bloodstream by various secretary organs to assist in nearly every vital function.  Acupuncture can make sure that any of the interruptions or disruptions caused by electromagnetic pollution is not permanent.

As with other types of alternative medicine, with acupuncture you should not expect miracles. You can't and shouldn't expect an immediate cure.

What you can expect is that by undergoing a course of treatment the proper flow of energy will be restored throughout your body and this will promote healing.

    I have used acupuncture many times in the past for relief of hip and back pain and to give back energy after a 2 month period of total listlessness / post viral fatigue. Unfortunately, it has not helped my electro sensitivity. I would be interested to hear if it has worked for other people who are ‘sensitive’ and specifically what effects it has had.

    Hi Jules,
    I am currently undergoing a series of accupuncture treatments for my neck, back, and hip pain due to an auto accident. The accupuncturist knows that I have EHS, and she checks me after each treatment to see what effect the treatment has had on the EHS level in my body… she has been reporting that the levels are lower now, and one day she even said that there was no trace of it in my body at that time. Time will tell how this works out, and if I stop reacting to WiFi, especially.
    I do not use a cell phone except rarely, but I know that being around other people who are on their cell phones is just as detrimental to me…so we will see. I will be glad to report back on how I progress…for now, I go by what the accupuncturist is telling me of her findings.
    Note to Lloyd: do I understand you correctly that in 2003 you felt it was helpful, but do not believe that now? I think I read that you did not find relief for the EHS you had. Please clarify as of today’s thoughts.
    Thank you for your hard work…you are amazing and I am grateful for how you are helping us.

    Hi Ruth
    Acupuncture was one of the first alternative health techniques I tried when I first became electrically sensitive. It seemed to “do something” but I still felt as electrically sensitive after my treatments as I did before….I don’t think acupuncture on its own can “cure” you but I believe if used in conjunction with other healing modalities it can be very powerful.

  • Ruth Ruddock said,

    Thanks for that clarifying comment, Lloyd!
    I will continue with the treatments and see how it goes. In the meantime, because I can’t view your book on this computer, and I can’t view James’ film, could you post some of the other treatments that you used, along with the accupuncture, to finally have the breakthrough you have been enjoying…thanks!

    I will keep posting Ruth….its a slow process because I do everything myself here…but I will keep posting.

    I totally agree with you, study shows that acupuncture is a best treatment for back pain. In case of severe suffering, acupuncture can be very useful for providing very gentle but highly effective treatment for back pain. The general belief is that the body has twenty energy flow pattern called meridians, through that vital energy flows in entire body, it is essential for good health. Over 2000 point in our body directly connected to these pathways, during treatment in acupuncture hair thin needle are pointed to these pathway to control the blood and energy flow. At first insertion of needle patient find some tingling sensation which usually last about 10 to 15 minutes. Treatment is not painful, there is a mere sensation of the needle going in and out, an acupuncture needle’s tip comes to a smooth point with no sharp edges. It is very bony, about 20 times thinner than a hypodermic needle.
    All these techniques are using while treating the back pain patients.
