EMF testing is a terrific step on your journey to optimal health. This type of inspection will reveal the invisible energy pollution all modern electrified environments (like your home) have, and educate you on how they effect your family, as well as what you can do to mitigate them and optimize the environment. It is a totally empowering experience! Schedule your free discovery call today, book your Inspection, or read on to learn more about the process.
A wide range of people reach out to me to schedule their home assessment, here are the most common reasons:
Simple curiosity about the presence of electromagnetic fields in their homes.
Recent diagnosis of electrohypersensitivity syndrome (EHS), lyme, fibromyalgia, or other disease processes.
Recommendation of a doctor, naturopath, or other practitioner.
Sudden onset of unexplained, debilitating symptoms like poor sleep quality, aches/pains, rashes, inflammations, brain fog, headache, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), dry/blurry eyes, and many others.
Considering renting or purchasing a home or apartment, and concerned about nearby power lines, cell tower, or simply wanting to select a healthy space for their family.
Experiencing an increase or undesirable level of fatigue at the end of the day.
Oh, and folks do reach out about yurts, Sprinter vans, offices and many other interesting environments, so for the sake of brevity I will just include these when I use the word 'home' in this blog.
There are many reasons to have a home EMF assessment performed, and you can always schedule a complimentary discovery phone call with me if you have questions.
Why Should I have my Home Inspected for EMFs?
The increase in number of appliances and tech gadgets on the market over the last few decades has been staggering. I've seen reports that the average home now has at least 17 connected devices. Whether it's the electricity that flows through them, or the energy they emit to connect, we know from the laws of physics that these gadgets release invisible, energetic pollution into our spaces.
How about an example? Here is a short read on cell phones and why they are problematic to our health. Now imagine for a second the wide variety of other devices and appliances in your space, each emitting its own EMF profile and adding to the toxic symphony of invisible energetic pollution. There is probably a great deal going on in your space that you are not aware of!
During my studies and time in people's homes, I have discovered that the way we use these devices has a massive impact on our health. In fact, learning new "EMF hygiene" can allow us to harness the ways technology enhances our lives, while reducing the negative impacts. Testing for EMF in your space will reveal ways to practice healthier EMF hygiene.
I truly believe you can't get well in the space you got sick in.
In this modern world, maintaining health, as well as healing from disease or injury, requires making changes. Not just to your diet, or supplements, or lifestyle, but also to the energetics of spaces where you spend most of your time. You can spend a lot of money on books, doctors, and pills, only to have positive effects nullified by a toxic space. An EMF assessment will provide the insight and expertise you need to transform your space from toxic to healing.
Incorporation of an EMF specialist is part of a wider strategy for pursuit of optimal health, which involves experts like doctors, environmentalists (mold, air quality), fitness, nutrition, meditation etc.
What types of EMF pollution will be assessed?
My training allows me to specialize in identifying and mitigating the following major types of EMF pollution:
Power system EMF:
Dirty Electricity (EMI)
Radiofrequency (RF) - Microwaves or wireless
Toxic Light Frequencies
All of these artificial frequencies have been thoroughly researched and there is strong reason to be concerned about their effects on all cellular life.
So, what does an actual EMF test of your space look like?
My first goal is to understand your situation. What led you to reach out? What would you like to tell me? Is anyone affected? In what ways? Are you working with any other experts? Do you have general questions or specific areas of concern? This generally lasts about 15 minutes.
After that, I will request a quick tour of all areas of the space, including location of the circuit breaker panel(s), wireless internet, water heater, furnace and others.
From there, it is time to move about the exterior and interior of the house to begin assessing exposures for all of the major EMF types. Special attention will be paid to areas of extended use such as bedrooms, offices, and living rooms. There is usually a lot of ground to cover, so I prefer to focus in and won't be much of a conversationalist during this time. If you have questions, the best time to bring them up is at the beginning or end of the inspection.
At the end, I'll leave you with a report outlining my findings, exposure guidelines, and a remediation action plan.
During the inspection, I will experiment with manipulation of circuit breakers being on and off, as well as all communicating devices like WiFi router, TVs, phones, and BlueTooth devices. Why do I spend the time doing this? Well, strangely enough, disabling devices and circuit breakers in certain configurations, particularly sleeping times, is one of the easiest and most economical ways to create an optimal low EMF environment. Turning off communicating devices simulates a wired internet connection (ethernet) and can tell us just how much RF is coming in from the outside.
Please discuss this process with those that live with you to prepare them. In this day and age of working and schooling from home, an EMF inspection can be disruptive, particularly for those that aren't prepared for how it works. I'll do my best to coordinate with you prior to turning anything on or off.
Along the same line, other contractors should not be scheduled at the same time as an EMF inspection.
This entire process can take 5-6 hours for a 2,500 square foot home, and beyond for larger.
Once the assessment is complete, I will distill the data & findings into an info-packed written summary report and leave it with you. I will combine the data from my pre-research into your local area, with my in-home findings. It will show you Building Biology guidelines for the major EMF types, and how your space measured up, so that you can compare.
The report will also contain recommendations from my experience since 2017 for what you can do to reduce or eliminate the pollution. I highly recommend you thoroughly read the report, mark it up with your questions, and discuss with your family as appropriate for their input. The report can contain a lot of information to go over, so take your time! When you are ready, please schedule your complimentary follow-up call with me. I want to make sure that everything is clear and you feel empowered to make the recommended changes. Please note, a typed report in .pdf form can be provided for an additional fee.
The report will provide you many actionable steps to optimize your environment. I do my best to include free or low-cost options wherever possible. However, many times specialty materials such as shielding paint, equipment grounding accessories, or even work by an electrician or plumber will be recommended. These do have cost associated with them. In some cases, I do have affiliate relationship with the manufacturer and can provide you with a discount code. As far as the installation goes, I can guide you, or your preferred contractor, in the implementation of these items. In some instances I can perform the work.
I will only recommended products that have been verified and vetted by sources I trust, and have used for my clients to good effect. It is always recommended to verify results after you install any shielding products.
My support for your journey to develop and maintain an optimal dwelling space does not end once the home assessment and follow-up call are completed. I am an ongoing resource for clients to answer questions, help in searching for potential new properties, and ensure they are educated about the ever changing landscape of EMF in the modern world.
So are you ready to level up in your optimal health journey? Let's move forward together on this road!
You can also check out my reviews online to see what others thought about the home EMF Inspection I did for them. I have very high standards for the work I do and am so happy to have many positive reviews reflecting that. Here are my Google reviews as an example.
