SHUMANN RESONANCE (the earth’s electromagnetic frequency).

Humans resonate with earth: 

There is a biological and harmonic connection between our biological pulsating frequency and that of the earth.   The inherent frequency of the earth is 7.8Hz [ 7-13 Hz ]. Earth resonates with a frequency similar to a person's brain waves when in Alpha (relaxed) state. This frequency has been shown in scientific studies to be an essential requirement for physical and psychological health. Since there are so many extraneous Extremely Low Frequency [ ELF ] frequencies in the earth's atmosphere at this time [ radio waves, TV waves, electrical grid lines, computers and cell phones ], these frequencies can cause a drowning out, or suppression of the natural Shumann Resonance.

Alpha waves in the human brain resonate with the same frequency as the Schumann resonance of the Earth. This implies that life uses it as a fixed reference point in its nervous system for some reason. In 2005, a study published by electrical engineer Roger Applewhite confirmed two highly significant facts:

1. Electrons move from the Earth to the body and vice versa when the body is grounded. This effect is sufficient to maintain the body at the same negative-charge electrical potential as the Earth. Electron flow in the mitochondria is known to reduce inflammation so it stands to reason that this flow of free electrons into the body from the earth is the mechanism by which inflammation is brought down.

2. Grounding powerfully reduces electromagnetic fields (EMFs)that have an effect on the body. EMF resonance above the normal frequencies found on EEG's, EKG's, and EMG's can all disturbed the fast acting communication system that all life appears to use.

One of the simplest remedies for this is the use of EM (Effective Microorganism's) which emit negative ions and far infrared.

What is Grounding?

The Earth is negatively charged. It has an endless supply of negative-charged free electrons. Anytime you have two conductive objects and they make contact, such as your bare feet and the ground, electrons will flow from the place where they are abundant to the place where there are fewer of them. The electrical potential of the two objects will thus equalize. That describes grounding simply.

The land and seas of planet Earth are alive with an endless and constantly replenished supply of electrons. Since all life makes direct contact with the surface of the planet--the skin of our bodies touching the skin of the Earth--our conductive bodies naturally equalize with the Earth. Figuratively speaking, we refill the electron level in our tank that has become low. How do we know that the body absorbs those electrons? In the 2005 study listed above it was proved with a simple experiment. Mr. Applewhite showed a voltage drop across an in-line resistor, measured with an oscilloscope, provided ample evidence of an exchange of electrons between the Earth and the body during grounding.

In North America, the power grid produces EMFs vibrating at 60Hz. This frequency alone is way above the natural resonance of the earth and the brain. Existing wires inside the walls of our homes produce EMFs even when appliances are not connected. The potential for interference of our internal communication system in our bodies varies from person to person and in different locations, depending on the intensity of the fields and how electron depleted we already are. Within an ungrounded body, electrons and other charged particles react with the environmental EMFs present in the immediate surroundings producing unnatural molecular perturbations. When a person is grounded to earth, the body is shielded from these perturbations by the Earth's electrons. The Applewhite study we just described showed that when the body is directly connected and 'plugged' into the Earth, it is essentially shielded from electropollution. An EMF has both an electric and a magnetic field, and the difference between the two and their effects on the body are determined by the bodies current energy supply of free electrons from food and their own ATP production in mitochondria.

The findings of a team of researchers from the Imperial College in London and the University of Washington's Department of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences, in a 2007 report, said that measurements in an office setting showed that the electrical energies people are exposed to indoors for large periods of time escalate the risk of infection, stress, and degenerative diseases, and reduce oxygen uptake and activity levels. And I quote, 'The nature of the electromagnetic environments that most humans are now regularly exposed to has changed dramatically over the past century and often bears little resemblance to those created in Nature'. 'In particular, the increased masking/shielding/insulation of individuals from beneficial types of natural electromagnetic phenomena, the presence of synthetic materials that can gain strong charge and increase exposures to inappropriate electric field levels and polarities have greatly altered the electromagnetic nature of the microenvironments many individuals usually occupy.' These environmental signs of EMF are codified by the magnetic cells in all life's suprachiamatic nucleus (SCN) to give the brain another dimension of time to time the biochemical reactions of life for survival. The brain uses natural EMF resonance with light and dark to tell time. It is our brains Rolex.

..Every electromagnetic field has its own vibrational (oscillations) pattern that dictates fluxes, kinetics, and biochemistry. This means how the EMF field interact with proton, electron, and neutrons in our cells . Once the EMF changes from its base state, the Schumann vibration, then it means all biochemical behavior must also change. This change causes molecular chaos in a system. We call that inflammation.

How it works

Our bodies are made up of about 60 percent water, which is great for conducting electricity. The Quantum Calming Mat™ emits negative ions. Similar to walking barefoot or breathing in mist --our body grounds to that charge. Negative Ions have been proven to detoxify, calm, reduce inflammation, synchronise our internal clocks, hormonal cycles and physiological rhythms.

Effective Microorganism's (or EM) Ceramic Powder emits a frequency called Far Infrared Radiation. This ultra-sonic frequency (meaning beyond the range of hearing), will calm a cell and prevent DNA damage. Infrared is the healing light of the sun, and is reproduced by the phototrophic bacteria of the Effective Microorganism'. This frequency is imprinted in the raw clay and then fired at a high temperature. Most of the Effective Microorganims have died from the heat. Some actually survive. But the active ingredient in the EM™ Ceramic Powder is not the living microorganim's that have survived, but in the infrared frequency that has been permanently imprinted in the fired clay.

 

It would appear that the Schumann Resonance acts like a natural tuning fork to our biological oscillators. Michael Hutchison states in his book "Mega Brain Power" The 7.83 Hz frequency has been found to be one of those "window frequencies" that appear to have a wide range of beneficial effects on human beings ranging from reports of enhanced healing to accelerated learning. When a biological system vibrates at this frequency, it can be said to be in a state of resonance or attunement with the planet's own magnetic frequency.... the "natural electromagnetic matrix for all life on this planet, the frequency in which all life forms evolved, and until recent decades, the dominant electromagnetic frequency in which all life took place."

As the Pineal Gland is affected by changes in the Earth's magnetic field, so is our hormone production. In particular, Melatonin, an important Neuro Hormone and oncostatic (cancer surpressing) agent, is not produced in the absence of the Schumann Resonance in outer Space and its production is throttled in the presence of electromagnetic pollution.

 

The cells in your body entrain to this healing frequency of far infrared. This reduces cellular exitation which has been caused by oxidizing agents such as harmful electro-smog and exposure to other oxidizing agents like harmful chemicals, exhaust, fumes, etc.When the cell is at a healthy frequency it can repair itself and preserve the DNA without mutations which might lead to disease and aging.

This material will emit the healing, calming frequency of far infrared. How can any living bacteria survive the high heat (above 500 celcius) of the firing? These phototropic bacteria have been on planet earth as the first life form, when the planet was a very hot and otherwise lifeless place. They have a unique niche of living off of oxidizing materials and turning what is toxic to other life forms into something that is highly beneficial and life enhancing. EM™ is a trademark for one group of S.A.M.s (syntropic, antioxidative, microorganisms). EM's were discovered by Dr. Tiro Higa in the early 1980's and have many applications which are promoted by EMRO (Effective Microorganism Research Organiztion.

American Academy of Environmental Medicine Electromagnetic and Radiofrequency Fields Effect on Human Health

http://hbelc.org/pdf/Resources/emfpositionstatement.pdf

Electromagnetic field (EMF) hypersensitivity has been documented in controlled and double blind studies with exposure to various EMF frequencies. Rea et al. demonstrated that under double blind placebo controlled conditions, 100% of subjects showed reproducible reactions to that frequency

2to which they were most sensitive.22 Pulsed electromagnetic frequencies were shown to consistently provoke neurological symptoms in a blinded subject while exposure to continuous frequencies did not.23

Although these studies clearly show causality and disprove the claim that health effects from RF exposure are uncertain, there is another mechanism that proves electromagnetic frequencies, including radiofrequencies, can negatively impact human health. Government agencies and industry set safety standards based on the narrow scope of Newtonian or “classical” physics reasoning that the effects of atoms and molecules are confined in space and time. This model supports the theory that a mechanical force acts on a physical object and thus, long-range exposure to EMF and RF cannot have an impact on health if no significant heating occurs. However, this is an incomplete model. A quantum physics model is necessary to fully understand and appreciate how and why EMF and RF fields are harmful to humans.26,27 In quantum physics and quantum field theory, matter can behave as a particle or as a wave with wave-like properties. Matter and electromagnetic fields encompass quantum fields that fluctuate in space and time. These interactions can have long-range effects which cannot be shielded, are non-linear and by their quantum nature have uncertainty. Living systems, including the human body, interact with the magnetic vector potential component of an electromagnetic field such as the field near a toroidal coil.26,28,29 The magnetic vector potential is the coupling pathway between biological systems and electromagnetic fields.26,27 Once a patient’s specific threshold of intensity has been exceeded, it is the frequency which triggers the patient’s reactions.

Long range EMF or RF forces can act over large distances setting a biological system oscillating in phase with the frequency of the electromagnetic field so it adapts with consequences to other body systems. This also may produce an electromagnetic frequency imprint into the living system that can be long lasting.26,27,30 Research using objective instrumentation has shown that even passive resonant circuits can imprint a frequency into water and biological systems.31 These quantum electrodynamic effects do exist and may explain the adverse health effects seen with EMF and RF exposure. These EMF and RF quantum field effects have not been adequately studied and are not fully understood regarding human health.

Because of the well documented studies showing adverse effects on health and the not fully understood quantum field effect, AAEM calls for exercising precaution with regard to EMF, RF and general frequency exposure. In an era when all society relies on the benefits of electronics, we must find ideas and technologies that do not disturb bodily function. It is clear that the human body uses electricity from the chemical bond to the nerve impulse and obviously this orderly sequence can be

disturbed by an individual-specific electromagnetic frequency environment. Neighbors and whole communities are already exercising precaution, demanding abstention from wireless in their homes and businesses.

Far Infrared waves are the longest rays in the light spectrum. This wavelength is highly compatible with human tissue. The body can absorb them easily at depths up to 3 inches, where they can do lots of good work.

Far Infrared waves remove blood cell clusters and this improves blood circulation. In other words, this is a way to restructure the water in the body. Because the infrared rays penetrate the tissue, they work deep into body tissue, not just on the surface of the skin.

Far infrared waves generate a warming effect by activating cells. NASA uses Far Infrared wave technology in the space suits of their astronauts.

Increased blood circulation removes toxins from muscles and internal organs, lowers blood pressure, and improves overall body function.

 

Why are EMFs (Electro Magnetic Fields) dangerous?

The AC electrical system in our homes runs on 50 or 60 Hz, which is in the same range as our body's own resonant frequency. Because our body's resonant frequency is so close to our home's electrical system, resonance is established between our body and the house electricity, allowing energy to be transferred from the electrical wiring and appliances into our body's nervous system.

This foreign energy in the body knocks ions out of the cells in our body and interferes with the metabolism within the cells. This phenomenon accounts for deficiencies in calcium (contributing to arthritis, anxiety), lithium (depression, schizophrenia), and potassium (Alzheimers).

In addition, EMFs coming from our AC electrical system induce biologically meaningless currents in our nervous system and brains. We subconsciously receive meaningless information about how our appliances are working. This energy exchange, which can certainly be described as a subtle attack, generates stress hormones in the body, which in turn slowly erode the immune system over time and contribute to the many immune deficiency diseases that are common today.

Microwave radiation (high frequency radiation that is present almost everywhere from cell towers and radio broadcasts) presents even greater dangers to the human body. The body can read microwave radiation, even though it is high frequency, due to the body's ability to read digital changes in an analog fashion. Dr. Robert Becker, one of the earliest researchers into the effects of electricity on the human body explains how this process works in his book, Cross Currents.)

This ability to translate digital signals into analog signals allows the body to set up resonance with the microwave radiation, thus allowing for energy and information transfer. The result is that the human brain absorbs microwave radiation, even though heat is not necessarily generated. However, cell phone radiation can also have an ionizing effect on the human brain, actually heating up portions of the brain if used long enough.

Over time, microwave radiation from cell phones is dangerous to mental functioning and creativity, progressively reducing our ability to think clearly and reach our highest potential Current research has now been correlating cell phone usage with brain tumors. We are like frogs who have been put in water that is very slowly heating up. We don't realize the danger we are in until it's too late. Like the frog, as more and more manmade radiation assaults our nervous systems and brains, we are slowly adjusting and becoming numb. We simply do not have the measuring mechanisms to observe electromagnetic fields. Current research is a wake up call

The plug in the wall units emit a harmonizing frequency that is known to eliminate the negative effects EMF has towards people. OR you can wear a necklace or wrist band that strengthens or energizes your own body energy.

What are Antioxidants?

The term "antioxidants" refers to substances that prevent or slow down an oxidization process. Breathing is an example of an oxidization process. The oxygen that is absorbed into the lungs spreads through every cell in the body. This ensures that food is processed and dissolved to supply energy. Hence oxidization is a vital process in keeping human beings alive.

However, this same oxidization process has a totally negative effect if oxygen becomes overactive in the human body. In activated form (in other words overactive), oxygen causes harmful processes. Our surroundings (our living environment) contain many harmful substances such as exhaust fumes, industrial emissions, agriculture and chemical substances used in food preparation etc.

These substances are in most cases oxidized or cause oxidization, in other words oxygen compounds. Generally speaking, oxygen is stable in its various compounds, but loses its stability in the human body and becomes highly active. If there is an excess of this highly-active form, it forms compounds with and destroys everything in its path.

The smallest unit of the human body is the cell. This is surrounded by a membrane that contains unsaturated fatty acids (comparable to our salad oil). The active (aggressive) oxygen oxidizes unsaturated fatty acids, causing malfunctioning of the cell membrane with the resulting harmful effect on the human body.

The actual oxidization is the chemical process whereby a molecule gives off electrons and thus becomes unstable. If there is too much active oxygen present, the unsaturated fatty acids in the cell membrane give off electrons and combine with the oxygen. But if there are antioxidants present, the cell membrane will give off the electrons of the activated oxygen onto the unsaturated fatty acids that are in the oxidization process, thus stabilizing the situation.

If there are sufficient antioxidants at hand, no (harmful) oxidization will take place. The anti-oxidants give off electrons to the activated oxygen and to other molecules that have lost electrons and have become unstable. These create a stable balance and guarantee the body's health. As we stated earlier, our modern way of life is leading to a sharp increase in oxidants, which is why antioxidants are becoming more and more important.

The most important antioxidants in EM-X are: * ALPHA-TOCOPHEROL * FLAVONOIDE * GAMMA-ORYZANOLU * UBICHINON and LYKOPIN. EM-X also includes various supplementary bio-active components and minerals.

EM-X Water The chemical formula for water is H²O. When all is said and done, where its physical characteristics are concerned, water should be considered as (H²O) in other words as a concentration of many molecules (known as clusters). The human consists for 70% of water. This water is in the form of bundled clusters and various combined substances.

The size of the cluster determines the degree of activity of the water. If three different types of water, that is to say water in EM-X, mains water and highly purified water (used for the purification of high-grade conductors) are measured with the aid of a nuclear magnetic resonance tester (NMR), the EM-X water cluster is about half the size of that of mains water and the same size as that of highly purified water. In addition, a water analysis by means of a molecular vibration test known as a Raman-spectroscope is carried out. The measurement results confirm that the characteristics of the EM-X water correspond with that of the highly purified water. These measurements also give evidence of strong luminescence, indicating that EM-X contains many substances. Generally speaking, the more substances water clusters contain, the bigger they are. Yet the clusters in EM-X water remain small, flexible and dynamic. Based on these characteristics the human body can easily take up and absorb EM-X with all its antioxidants, bioactive substances and minerals. EM-X and Cancer "EM-X captures free radicals before they can damage cells or DNA and has been shown to scavenge 49% of the free radicals in the blood stream in just over 3 minutes." - Dr. Khalida Usmani, et al. EM-X® Therapy in Breast Cancer. Journal of Fatima Jinnah Medical College. April-June 2000, Vol.1. No. 1 Website design Vector7What is EM™

EM™ is the abbreviation for Effective Micro-Organisms. EM is a combination of useful regenerative micro-organisms that exist freely in nature and are not manipulated in any way. This mixture increases the natural resistance of soil, plants, water, humans, and animals. EM considerably improves the quality and fertility of soil as well as the growth and quality of crops. The possibilities for using EM are numerable and include the following:

* Agriculture - reducing the dependency on fertilisers, chemicals and pesticides * The restoration of polluted or degraded land

* For solving all kinds of environmental problems such as water, air, and soil pollution

* In horticulture, fruit and flower cultivation

* For use in the home in daily life for everyone

* The recycling of kitchen waste and turning it into valuable organic material

* In the garden to improve soil structure, increase productivity and to suppress both disease and weeds

* In animal husbandry and for all kinds of pets

* In fisheries, aquariums and swimming pools

* In personal bodily hygiene and for the prevention and treatment of health problems.

EM consists of 5 different kinds of effective, disease-suppressing micro-organisms. Each of these effective micro-organisms has a specific task. In addition, these micro-organisms enhance each other's working. This means that synergy occurs! The micro-organisms are naturally existing and are not modified or manipulated in any way and are cultured according to a specific method. Some of which are known to produce bioactive substances such as vitamins, hormones, enzymes, antioxidants and antibiotics that can directly, or indirectly enhance plant growth and protection.

The micro-organisms in EM have been used medicinally and in food processing for many years, which gives an indication as to how safe hey are to use. EM consists of the following five families of micro-organisms:

1. Lactic acid bacteria: these bacteria are differentiated by their powerful sterilising properties. They suppress harmful micro-organisms and encourage quick breakdown of organic substances. In addition, they can suppress the reproduction of Fusarium, a harmful fungus.

2. Yeasts: these manufacture anti-microbial and useful substances for plant growth. Their metabolites are food for other bacteria such as the lactic acid and actinomycete groups.

3. Actinomycetes: these suppress harmful fungi and bacteria and can live together with photosynthetic bacteria.

4. Photosynthetic bacteria: these bacteria play the leading role in the activity of EM. They synthesise useful substances from the secretions of roots, organic matter and/or harmful gases (e.g. hydrogen sulphide) by using sunlight and the heat of soil as sources of energy. They contribute to a better use of sunlight or, in other words, better photosynthesis. The metabolites developed by these micro-organisms are directly absorbed into plants. In addition, these bacteria increase the number of other bacteria and act as nitrogen binders.

5. Fungi that bring about fermentation these break down the organic substances quickly. This suppresses smell and prevents damage that could be caused by harmful insects.

Effective Microorganisms, or EM is one of the most popular microbial technologies being used world-wide now and EM products have been on the market since 1983 in Japan. EM comes in a liquid form and consists of naturally-occurring beneficial microorganisms. EM is now produced in many countries and uses the strains of the appropriate microorganisms that occur naturally to the region. Throughout the world, EM applications are made in the farming, livestock, environmental cleanup (polluted waterways, lakes and lagoons), and health industries. What EM is not, is harmful, pathogenic, genetically-engineered/modified (GMO), nor chemically-synthesized. Neither is EM a drug or fertiliser.

approximately 8-13 Hz per second.

When individuals are in an "alpha state" they will sleep a more peacefully and soundly because they are receiving an more thorough oxygen return to their brains. Alpha waves are waves of energy that are generated by the human brain, which is an energy radiation of approximately 8-13Hz per second.

Research has demonstrated that entering into the "alpha state" has many health benefits that include but are not limited to:

-improved focus and mental clarity

-individuals do not age as quickly; the physicality of aging is postponed.

-the brain is strengthened, thereby increasing intellect -the body is able to heal itself quicker

-the ability to fall asleep increases

It is important to note that, the brain produces four fundamental energy waves: beta, alpha, theta and delta. These four brain waves make up the electroencephalogram or electroencephalograph, better known as EEG.

All four brain waves are microscopic (approximately a few millionths of a single volt), oscillating electrical voltages. Alpha brain waves oscillate or swing back and forth about ten (10) times per second; on average that number can range between 8-13 cycles per second.

Alpha brain waves were first discovered by an Austrian psychiatrist named Hans Berger around 1908. This is how they came to be known as 'alpha' as they were simply discovered before the other brain waves.

Alpha waves are extremely fascinating in that they are not always visible. For example, if an individual is in a fight or flight emotional response, the alpha waves will disappear.

During certain times or emotional responses, the alpha wave can appear or disappear in the brain. Also, when a person is sleeping there are no signs of any alpha waves. In contrast to delta waves, which are visible during sleep, but only the deepest state of sleep (stage 3 and 4). Incidentally, delta waves are very slow in their oscillations (approximately 0-4 cycles per second), the slowest of all the brain waves.

All four brain waves can be viewed during the different stages of alertness and sleep; for instance, alpha waves are present when a person is fully awake and alert.

When an individual is in the beginning stages of sleep and start to experience drowsiness, that is when theta waves are seen (stages 1 and 2); this corresponds to the oscillations that are witnessed in the brain (4-7 cycles per second).

Beta waves are most visible during extremely stressful moments when the brain is clouded and the ability to focus has been impaired. As a result, the frequency of the waves oscillate a lot faster than the other brain waves (on average, about 13-40 cycles per second).

Scientists have long studied alpha waves along with the other three basic waves because of the effect they can have on the body as well as the mind. These four brain waves are the basic foundation for all EEG brainwave activity. It was important to discuss the basic functions of each brain wave, in relationship to the different states of consciousness, in order to demonstrate the necessity for each brain wave and if, due to external stimuli or any other factors, the brain waves are not performing adequately one can seek out tangible items to replicate those brain waves.

For example, if the theta or delta brain waves have been inhibited, insomnia may occur, and as a result an individual may seek out a calm setting to encourage the slowing down of the oscillations of the brain waves, which will ultimately lead to sleep. Alternatively, when an individual wakes from sleep but the alpha waves do not immediately reappear, thereby causing alertness and mental acuity, that same person may seek to bring on the alpha waves or replicate it with something like coffee because caffeine, a stimulant, mimics alertness.

You may now be considering what are the other benefits of alpha waves and what type of effect can they have on the body and the mind. Again, scientists have discovered that alpha wave production in the brain reduces stress and anxiety. Studies have shown over and over again, that high-levels of chronic stress can weaken the immune system, but if you have a stable alpha wave production that lessens stress considerably, you can see a stronger immune system.

Steady and increased alpha wave frequency can lead to creativity in individuals.

When individuals are focused and alert, they have to ability to think clearly because their mental acuity is intact.

Peak performance is another benefit of alpha wave production. These two benefits seemingly go hand in hand.

Scientists, have also found that this can benefit athletes as well. When alpha wave production is prominent, athletes and individuals who are participating in physical activities that call for strength, endurance, and stamina find that they perform at optimum levels.

Studies have concluded that, when observing people in athletic scenarios, the presence of alpha waves are indicative of how well they will perform.
