During a media interview a couple of years ago, I announced that I intend to live to 180. I think the interviewer (and probably a lot of the people watching) assumed I was joking.
I was not joking. With current anti-aging strategies and the rate that science is advancing, I’m convinced that you can live well beyond 100 years old and feel amazing the whole time.
We understand aging better than ever, and as research advances, we’re learning that there are a lot of things you can do to slow it down. One of the most exciting anti-aging strategies is reducing your EMF exposure.
Managing your electromagnetic field (EMF) exposure is a powerful way to biohack longevity. People dismissed EMFs as unimportant for a long time, but in the last few years, researchers have discovered that EMFs have a major impact on your biology –– and protecting yourself from them can help you perform better and live longer.
2 Major Ways EMFs Make You Age Faster
EMFs are a type of radiation that you absorb from a variety of sources. *
While some EMFs are good for you, the majority are environmentally artificial EMFs that damage your biology and interfere with your performance.
You absorb EMFs every day from* WiFi, phones, laptops, cell networks, and other electronic devices. These are the damaging EMFs that can mess with your body, especially when it comes to your stress, sleep, and immune system.
1. EMFs Put Stress on Your Cells
You may have heard about heat shock proteins (HSPs) before: it was named this way from experiments where stress was produced by extreme heat, but generally speaking, HSP is a biomarker of cellular stress, of any kind (including electromagnetic stress).
When your body releases them, they stimulate cellular repair and help protect your cells from damage.
When they’re responding to controlled heat (like when you’re in a sauna for 30+ minutes) HSPs are great. The heat does no lasting damage, and you reap the benefits of increased cellular repair.
But your body also releases heat shock proteins in response to more damaging kinds of stress. A number of studies have found that being near mobile phones, WiFi signals, and other EMF sources causes an increase in HSPs –– a sign of cellular stress and damage[*][*][*].
HSPs can repair damage from short, controlled exposure to a stressor. But when you’re constantly exposed to EMFs from your laptop, WiFi, cell phone, and so on, HSPs can’t keep up, and your body starts to age faster[*].
2. EMFs Wreck Your Sleep
Quality sleep is one of the best predictors of healthy aging, especially when it comes to your brain[*]. It’s during deep sleep that your brain clears out the proteins that cause Alzheimer’s and other forms of age-related dementia. When you don’t get good sleep, those proteins start to build up in your brain[*].
If you aren’t sleeping well, EMFs could be the culprit. Recent research shows that low-level EMF exposure –– the same level you experience on a daily basis -– disrupts your brain’s ability to release melatonin, the hormone that makes you feel sleepy and helps you stay in deep sleep[*].
How to Protect Yourself from EMFs
EMFs are everywhere, and to be fair, they give us a lot of benefits: WiFi, cell phones, and laptops have become an indispensable part of life.
That said, it’s worth your time to minimize the damage EMFs do. You can decrease your EMF exposure, but if you use modern technology, you’re still going to absorb EMFs every day.
The good news is that there are new devices that can compensate for most of the biological adverse effects of EMF exposure.
My favorite one is the Harmony from COMOSYSTEMS’ laboratory. It’s designed to emit an electromagnetic compensation signal which prevents the radiation across your home to have any impact on your health.
I also carry a Traveller, which you keep on a keychain and take with you wherever you go. It provides effective EMF protection about 10 feet away from you in every direction.
Environmental EMFs are necessary for modern society, but if you let them, they’ll also sap your performance and make you weak.
Fortunately, you can minimize the effect they have on you with a few simple precautions. Decrease your EMF exposure and give the COMOSYSTEMS Laboratory devices a try. You’ll feel the difference in your performance within a few days.
