Dealing with the effects of EMFs on your health in isolation is a big mistake. We are holistic beings. No part of us exists in isolation.
You need to look at the bigger picture. Nutrition is a very important part of this bigger picture.
When I became electrically sensitive I learned this the hard way.
This guest article by Bridget Sandorford gives some good advice on the nutrition angle which you should work into your EMF healthy lifestyle.
Why Choosing Locally Grown Produce is More Important than You Think
The local foods movement has grown over the last several years as more people are learning about the importance of eating a whole-foods diet for better health and to reduce the risk of disease and other chronic health conditions. With the way that food fads go, it may be tempting to dismiss the local movement as just another hipster trend. But choosing locally grown produce is about much more than hopping on the next health bandwagon.
Here are a few reasons why choosing locally grown produce is more important than you may think:
Small Farms are More Likely to Raise Organic Produce
Local farms are often smaller farms, and smaller farms are more likely to raise organic produce. Without a large operation that emphasizes as much output as possible, they are less likely to use a lot of harmful chemicals to raise their food. That means that you get food in its natural state, without the toxins that can lead to disease and disorder.
Fresher Food = Healthier Food
When you buy food locally, you are getting fresh food. Local produce doesn’t have to be sprayed or treated to preserve it for long trips being shipped halfway across the country or the world. Even organic produce that is shipped from outside the region won’t be as fresh as locally grown produce. When food sits on shelves or spends days or weeks being shipped, it starts to lose its nutritional value. The fresher your food is, the more nutrients it will have and the fewer toxins will be in it. Both will help you to promote greater health and vitality.
Local Produce Doesn’t Have to be Grown Using Artificial Means
When you are getting spring and summer foods in the dead of winter, it’s because someone is growing them in a climate half way around the world or they are using artificial methods to grow them. Artificial lights and chemical boosters may be able to grow plants out of season, but the resulting produce will not have the same quality nutritional profile, and if chemicals are used, the produce will contain toxins that will contribute to health disorders and disease.
Local Produce Helps the Environment
There are a number of ways that buying locally grown produce helps the environment. The most obvious benefit is that the food doesn’t have to be shipped hundreds or thousands of miles to get to your door step, which cuts down on consumption of natural resources like coal or oil. Locally grown produce also uses less packaging, which also reduces the consumption of natural resources and helps to reduce waste. Finally, when you buy locally grown produce, you are supporting local farmers, which means that you are supporting more open spaces in your community and are helping to ensure a supply of fresh and healthy food.
Helping the environment means that you are reducing the amount of toxic waste that can contaminate the local water supply and food supply. It also means that you are supporting a system that promotes the production of healthy foods — all of which helps you get the quality nutrition that you need to support health and vitality.
Eating locally grown produce is more than just a passing trend. It is an important choice that can have far-reaching ramifications for your health and for the health of the environment. Choosing locally grown produce will help you improve health and to thrive.

I fully agree nutrition is very important for staying healthy, but apparently it does not solve my EHS. Since the age of 40 (I am 65 now) I eat organic & healthy food (no sugar, no alcohol, no coffee, no cow’s dairy…). and I am the only in my family to do so. At the same time I am the only suffering from EHS. They all have WIFI, DECT, Blue Tooth, i-pad…. and seem not to bother ! Could it be that just because of my natural life style, I became more sensitive to artificial EMF’s, etc… ( after 1 day in a city I feel like 85 and ready to die; a long walk in the woods makes me feel like 20 again and gives me plenty of energy). Comment of one of my doctors : “there are just people who are not made for this high-tech society”. Sometimes I am happy to have reached the age of 65. I had a fulfilling & interesting life & I don’t know if I would be able to cope with EHS restrictions if I would be 20 now. I am so worried about next generations, especially about my 3 (nearly 4) very young grandchildren.
Could there be other reasons/triggers for my EHS ?
My experience suggests EMFs are not working in isolation….there are many toxins in the environment….in your body. You need to work on reducing your intake of these toxins whilst eliminating the existing ones. I talk about how you can do this in my EMF protection report and newsletters.
I have found root vegetables (like parsnip and sweet potato) and seaweeds (like dulse) to be very “Grounding”, other heavy foods like raw cream have a similar effect. If you are Sympathetic Dominant (or vata) who tend to run very acidic, maintaining PH balance is essential to balance the nervous system.
Grounding is not just about walking barefoot and using grounding mats and sheets, as you say certain foods can help us ground also. Grounding is VERY IMPORTANT for dealing with ES. As is pH – I hope to write an article about this angle soon.
they say emf is higher on the back n side of the laptop.is tat true?
On the laptops I’ve tested the highest EMFs emanated from the electronics under the keyboard, but this can differ….the only way to be sure is to measure with an EMF meter.

Hello Cassandra. You asked: “Could there be other reasons/triggers for my EHS?”
I happen to be a more rare blood type of AB+. In contacting EM sensitive ‘others’ on the web, I find that AB blood types have more issues than most. Also AB’s seem more sensitive to RF noise, and many of us have tinnitus.
Alkalizing the body system is very important. Also occasional use of a pro-biotic in the 12 billion range for two weeks on – then two weeks off. Blood acidity seems to follow moon cycles in males too. Mercury amalgams are a big no-no. Have them removed by an amalgam removal expert, so the removal doesn’t poison you.
Your diet looks excellent. Bravo! Diet is a huge factor. I can sure relate to the way you respond to the woods versus city. I can’t go out for fun anymore. 🙁

It seems to me that us people who eat more clean, might be alot more aware. I remember when I used to be able to eat whoppers. Then, the better my diet, the more aware I became of the distress. I think that is happening with EMFs. If we don’t numb ourselves with fluoride and crap food and toxins, we become alot more aware. This is my hunch and theses are usually right on..It wasalways a mystery to me when folks would say ” she was always “so” healthy. Was she aware???

Another aspect here is that metals conduct electricity. When/if we have metals in our brains (metal fillings, aluminum,etc, the emf is probably going to effect us more..Thoughts??

Hello Terri Gibbs. Mercury amalgams are a big no-no. Have them removed by an amalgam removal expert, so the removal doesn’t poison you or the planet.
Mercury from human amalgams is polluting the groundwaters and poisoning other animals. Mercury fillings vaporize at a much higher rate in a person who is being exposed to EM radiation. The mercury migrates to higher current junctions in the neurological body, as a result of this increased oxidation.
