Reduce EMF: Ditch Wearables - My Fitbit Mishap

One day long ago I heard a funny saying that marketing "was the ability to arrest your common sense long enough to extract money from your wallet." That is so true in many cases. I thought of that saying after coming back to my senses after a Fitbit mishap.

Somehow, strangely enough, as my sensitivity to man-made EMFs was slowly but surely escalating (as my sleep was slowly and surely getting worse), I thought it was a great idea to buy a Fitbit to track my sleep. A well known doctor, who shall not be named, had mentioned this and instead of filtering that advice through my b.s. meter, I took it hook, line and sinker.

These are the kinds of brilliant mistakes you make when you don't understand the gravity of the situation you're in. I was bathing in a sea of unnatural energy that clouded my brain. It was a time when I lived in a community with dozens of wi-fi signals and I was having trouble sleeping as it was. Blasting myself all night with more EMF at point blank range was just plain ridiculous. It is a well known fact that your body and brain detox in the early hours of sleep (and this is when you detox EMFs.) Why add more fuel to the fire!?

Sleep disruptions can be one of the first signs of EMF sensitivity, but at the time I didn't know that. I did know that I'd sleep better with wi-fi off though. Somehow I didn't make the connection that wearables are giving off radio-frequency just like wi-fi routers or cell phones are. Does the average person even know what kind of frequencies are emitted from wearables? If they do know, I feel like there is an illusion, an assumption, that these small devices aren't giving much off, but that is an erroneous assumption.

Once I woke up from my Fitbit slumber and looked at these devices for what they are, my view of these devices has never been the same. Here's why:

  • Wearables are obviously at point blank range on the body. The human aura (bio-field) is our first line of defense against all pesky energies, including man-made EMFs. The aura is intelligent and can help keep these non-beneficial energies out of the body's field by grounding them. If you have any device on your body or in your energy field (like having your phone close by) there is no first line of defense. Remember, the body perceives man-made EMFs as toxic, foreign energies to keep out.

  • Wearables, which give off Bluetooth, can be extremely high in their radio-frequency output. Who knew?

  • Although many devices allow you to shut off the radiation emitted, Fitbit and many other wearables do not have offer this option. This means that your body is being exposed to incoherent, non-beneficial frequencies even if you don't really need your device to be emitting them.

  • These devices give off positive ions, like all man-made EMFs. It's negative ions (that are abundant in nature) that promote well-being. Those are what we want more of to stay healthy.

  • Many experts have said that these devices really aren't that accurate, although this may change as the technology improves. These devices are not medical devices which are considered to be the most accurate way to measure sleep. As with any multi-billion dollar industry, there seems to be an issue with promoting illusions for profit. Do an online search about these devices and find people who have used more than one sleep tracker at a time. They reveal a simple fact that the different trackers show different statistics! Ugh.

  • And then something that is really hidden from view is the fact that these devices - just like any that emit radio-frequency - can cause insomnia or other symptoms if you are sensitive to man-made EMF.

  • If you listen to how a Fitbit sounds when measured with an EMF meter, this could be enough to never use it again.

  • My Fitbit mishap wasn't as bad as this though. Radio-frequency is the fire element. Notice how Google's remarks implied that Fitbit users were being dishonest about the origin of their burns. Hmmm. Others have been shocked by their devices. The skin isn't meant to be bombarded with foreign radio-frequency. Hello! These issues are the tip of the iceberg, only what we know as of yet. I wonder how many years it will take until there is a skin cancer connection.

In an article by The Guardian, sleep specialist and psychologist Dr. Michael Breus says of fitness trackers, “They pique people’s curiosity, and it gets them to ask ‘how is my sleep’? That’s the best thing about them.” But in terms of clinical applications, he says, “The data isn’t good enough to give them a diagnosis. They could be useful for tracking sleep trends over a longer period of time, to see when something changes, though.”

As we come back to our senses, we realize all we need is good ol' fashion nature to get good sleep. Think wind down time, blue light blocking glasses, not eating 3 hours before bed, getting proper amounts of sunlight in the morning, and definitely no devices in the bedroom that emit wireless frequencies. It's just that at this present moment in history we are testing the limits of what it means to be biological creatures. Just how much biological incompatibility can we tolerate before the human body reaches a tipping point? Sometimes tech and biology simply don't mix. Tech isn't, after all, organic.

Don't be a "tech victim" or a "fashion victim" for that matter! Ditch your wearables. Keep your shine shining!
