Electromagnetic safety for a healthy life
EMF Wellness is here to help keep Tucson’s homes, offices, and schools safe from unhealthy levels of electromagnetic fields (EMFs).
EMFs are waves of energy that radiate out into the environment around us. We humans have lived in harmony with natural EMFs from the earth and sun for over 200,000 years. Artificial EMFs came into our lives 150 years ago following the invention of electricity. In the last 25 years, the digital revolution has brought with it an explosion of radio frequency (wireless) radiation that is expected to greatly increase with the 5G rollout, which is well underway in Tucson.
Along with our fellow plants and animals, we are now exposed to this invisible, silent radiation from hundreds of devices—from cell towers and solar panels outside of buildings to wi-fi routers and baby monitors within. The rising levels of EMFs are starting to take a toll on our health and the health of the planet. It’s time we take notice, that we learn about EMFs and their impacts. It's important to ensure that while we enjoy the many benefits of modern technologies we protect ourselves from unsafe radiation that damages our health.

At EMF Wellness, we believe people should have a choice about their exposure to any substance that can be harmful to their health. The first step in exercising that choice is to know your exposure. We have the knowledge and tools to measure EMFs, get them to safe levels, and educate you so you can make informed choices.
EMF Health Effects
We humans are fundamentally electromagnetic beings. Our brain, heart, muscles, bones, and pancreas all work on electricity. When awake, our brain produces enough energy to power a 40-watt light bulb. The field of our heart is so strong it extends 8-10 feet around us—it is an essential carrier of information for the heart’s functioning and thus for our entire circulatory system.
Our bodies evolved in harmony with nature’s EMFs from the earth and sun—human-made, artificial EMFs conflict with our electromagnetic signals, affecting our body at the cellular level. Thousands of scientific studies on their health effects show that over-exposure to human-made EMFs puts stress on our bodies at the cellular level, leading to uncomfortable symptoms and increasing our risk of many illnesses and diseases.
Common symptoms of EMF over-exposure:
Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
Joint and muscle pain
Serious illnesses that can develop over time:
Infertility and miscarriage
Other cancers (brain, breast, thyroid and colon)
Birth defects and developmental disorders
Depression and anxiety
Cognitive (e.g. ADHD) and behavioral disorders
Did you know? The United Nations World Health Organization has classified wireless radiation a possible carcinogen (cancer causing). Given new scientific studies, this "Class 2b" designation is expected to rise to a class 2a probable carcinogen and then eventually to a Class 1 known carcinogen (like smoking and asbestos). The process of getting from the science to industry regulation took some 50 years for smoking which, similar to wireless radiation, faced tough opposition from those with financial interests at stake.
Let's hope it goes faster for EMFs!
What you can do:
Three keys to EMF Wellness
Reduce artificial EMFs from inside and outside of the buildings we inhabit to safe levels.
Enjoy modern electronic devices using EMF-safe practices.
Build resilience to artificial EMFs that can't be avoided by staying healthy and spending time with natural EMFs.
Children and Teens
Because of their stage of development and body size, our children and teens are especially vulnerable to EMFs. Yet they are the first generation to be exposed to unnaturally high levels their whole lives. They are exposed to these EMFs mainly in their homes and schools, and from their and their parents' personal electronic devices like cell phones.
EMF Wellness is dedicated to keeping our children and teens EMF safe so they can reach their full potential as they grow into adulthood.
Did you know? In response to new evidence of cancer risk, in 2016 the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended that the US government tighten wireless exposure limits and that the public reduce children's exposure to devices that emit wireless radiation, such as cell phones and wi-fi routers.
GMOs, Red Dye #40, glyphosate, pesticides, mold, BPA .... and now EMFs??? Sorry to be the bearer of the news, but yes, when caring for our families we must now also consider EMF exposure.
The health effects of EMFs are cumulative over time, and EMFs affect our reproduction.
By taking steps now to get them down to safe levels in your home (as they likely were in your childhood), you are allowing your children and future generations to grow to their full mental and physical potential ... and safeguarding your own healthy aging.
