Why do this course?
If you want to live in or create a Healthy Home environment for someone else, then it’s important to know about Electro-magnetic Fields and how they can impact our health. These include electric and magnetic fields and radiofrequency radiation. The increase in these invisible hazards over the last 60 years has been massive and there is a growing body of evidence that there are serious effects on health. In 2011 The World Health Organization (WHO) increased the danger rating of radio-frequencies to 2b stating that they are possibly carcinogenic to humans. This is as a result of countless studies showing a rise in brain tumors related to mobile phone use.
Studies have also shown that long-term exposure to all types of EMF’s compromises our immune system by interfering with intercellular communication and much more in terms of effects on health. EMF exposure can have a damaging effect on our DNA and our Genes and lead to diseases including cancer.
Concerns about how much children are exposed to high levels of EMF’s in utero and from birth cannot be ignored. Children are far more susceptible to radiofrequency penetration of their brains. With the increase of digital technology, babies and children are being bombarded within their homes and in schools. Leisure activities are not so much outdoor in nature anymore, but in front of Ipad’s, iPods, gaming consoles, computers etc. Social networking is addictive to young people and they simply spend hours surrounded by radiofrequencies and electromagnetic fields emitting from transformer plugs.
As well as the potentially serious effects on health, there are a growing number of people who are becoming electro sensitive, seriously impacting on their quality of life.
The reason for doing this course
The effect of EMF’s on our health is worrying but in most cases there are things we can do to minimize them for our-selves and for our children.This course will outline the sources of EMF’s, teach you how to measure them and about some of the solutions available. It will give you a great basis to further study and practice to develop your own Healthy Home and offer it as a service to others. If you are informed you are in a position to make a difference, one that could be life saving.
What you will learn
By the end of the course you will be able to:
- Identify the common sources of EMFs inside and outside the home
- Know the harmful effects of Electro, Magnetic and Radiofrequencies (EMF’s) and find the research
- Use a meter to measure Electric and Magnetic fields and a meter to measure Radio Frequencies
- Undertake an EMF Survey of a home and complete a report on this
- Identify and provide advice on the available solutions for reducing exposure
- Consider some of the other causes of an unhealthy home and solutions. (lighting, dirty electricity and radon gas)
