Ever wondered why we go a bit loopy around the full moon or why a storm seems to bring out anxiety and/or excitement…?? Its seems it has everything to do with these invisible molecules called ions that float around us in the air continually…
I was introduced recently to the very real issue of Electromagnetic Field’s or EMF’s. These are the fields of energy that surround us daily. The fields can be charged either positively or negatively.
A scientist name Nikola Tesla experimented with electromagnetic flux and studied the earth’s gravitational field in the early 1900’s and during his research he discovered that with positive ionization, people and animals became tired and lethargic and with negative ionization the effect was one of feeling active and energetic
“Negative ions are odorless, tasteless, and invisible molecules that we inhale in abundance in certain environments. Think mountains, waterfalls, and beaches. Once they reach our bloodstream, negative ions are believed to produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of the mood chemical serotonin, helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress, and boost our daytime energy.
Positive ions or the lack of negative ions may cause serotonin hyperfunction syndrome or “irritation syndrome” and it involves sleeplessness, irritability, tension, migraine, nausea, heart palpitations, hot flashes with sweating or chills, tremor and dizziness. The elderly especially become depressed, apathetic and extremely fatigued”*
So to keep it simple – and this is going to sound backwards but stick with me – all the techy devices in our lives – which lets admit we LOVE create POSITIVE electro magnetic fields and for our body to be able to fight disease and produce energy, we need NEGATIVE electro magnetic fields (like I said – backwards!).
Now I’m not sure about you but I don’t know where I would be without my iphone and Macbook these days and unfortunately it doesn’t only apply to computers and phones – everything electrical produces these fields so lights, TV’s (digital especially and well analogue is pretty much extinct!), microwaves, cordless phones etc – everything we have grown so accustomed to using and living with.
So in recent years we have REALLY upped the amount we use these techy devices and in doing so we have made our bodies produce more cortisol (stress hormone) and basically have to work SO much harder to stay healthy!
What has this got to do with the moon and storm’s you might be wondering?? A lack of negative ions and an excess of positive ions are the culprits. There are too many positive ions present in the air before a storm and the positive charge is transferred in the air you breathe from your lungs to the blood, causing the blood platelets to release a hormone that quite strongly affects your moods!
Similarly the full moon increases positive ion ratios, which accounts for the strange and aggressive behavior noted by police and medical services. Studies show that 75% of the population is noticeably and adversely affected by positive ion ratios, while increased negative ions tend to have a calming influence on these same people.
So how can we counter these EMF’s because I know that giving up the iphone isn’t an option!
The best way is to of course reduce how much you use them first and foremost – and if you have kids REALLY try and limit the time they spend on them because these EMF’s effect them SO much more than us – the statistics shocked me to be frank with you…
Another great way is to over dose yourself with negative ions and one of the best ways to do that is to GROUND yourself daily – what I mean by ground yourself is to stand barefoot on the dirt/sand/grass because the earth’s natural EMF is NEGATIVE so by doing this daily you are helping your body balance all of these techy things out. If everyone did this at the very least once a day you will really notice the difference – especially in your energy levels. The ocean is another great source of negative EMF’s so swim in it as often as you can!
Nature will always provide…
Happiness is – getting lots and lots of negative ions on a daily basis…
Until next time…
