Discover the natural solution to cell phone pollution.

My old friend Dr. Andy Weil once said, “Electromagnetic pollution may be the most significant form of pollution human activity has produced this century, all the more dangerous because it is invisible and insensible.”

When Dr. Weil made this statement in the early 2000s, the understanding that long-term exposure to EMF radiation from cell phones causes harm was not that widely known, and what was understood was diminished and hidden by cell phone manufacturers. We now have a thorough understanding, backed up by decades of scientific research discussed in detail in my book Zapped, that cell phone radiation is indeed incredibly dangerous.

Through this research we have discovered:

  • Using a modern cell phone for as little as 500 minutes a month (most of us use our phones much more than this) can increase the likelihood of developing certain brain cancers by 140%-300%. (1)
  • Long-term exposure to cell phone radiation has been shown to cause leakage of the delicate blood-brain barrier allowing toxins to more easily penetrate and damage brain tissue. (2)
  • Using your cell phone regularly for as little as six years can increase your risk of developing a tumor of the auditory nerve by 50%. (3)
  • EMF radiation from cell phones has been shown throw off hormone balance in the body by increasing estrogen and adrenaline production. (4)

I could go on, but you get the point – seemingly harmless, invisible EMF radiation from cell phones is dangerous.

How EMF Radiation from Cell Phones Harms Your Body

We now understand that there are primarily two ways that EMF radiation from a cell phone harms the body:

  • Near Field Plume Radiation
  • ICRW (Information-Carrying Radio Wave)

The near field plume is what scientists call the extremely intense amount of extremely low frequency EMF radiation (eEMR) that “plumes” about 6-8 inches from the cell phone. Scientists have proven that this intense EMF radiation can penetrate extremely deep into biological tissue.

ICRW stands for Information-Carrying Radio Wave, and this is the actual radio wave that carries information from your cell phone to a cell tower, and onto the receiver. The information you are sending, whether you’re talking on your cell phone, sending a photo or video, or anything else, is carried by this wave. This combination signal vibrates at around 800-2200 megahertz and this extremely fast vibration is what has been shown to cause damage in the body.

Here is how that damage actually occurs:

The cells inside our body have their own receptors located within the cell membrane. These receptors are fully capable of receiving and being affected by chemical and vibrational signals. Our cells pick up on this EMF radiation and sense it as a foreign signal, dramatically inhibiting our cells’ ability to communicate, function, and even reproduce. This is one of the reasons that blood work such as dark field microscopy is such a powerful tool for deciphering how much damage cell phones cause, because we can see what the EMF radiation is doing to the cells.

Just like with any foreign invader, when the body senses EMF radiation it begins to do whatever it can to protect itself. One of the ways it does this is by inhibiting the active transport channels within the cell membranes, reducing their permeability and ability to function. This affects not only your body’s ability to get healthy nutrients into your cells, but also your body’s ability to kick toxins and free radicals out of your cells. As free radicals begin to build up inside of our cells, they lose the ability to repair and properly replicate DNA.

Also, this same cell phone radiation has been shown to dramatically increase the formation of micronuclei, which are essentially just DNA fragments that occur when cells are improperly formed. When these damaged cells die, called apoptosis, the contents of the cell are released and these contents are called micronuclei. Under healthy conditions this is not an issue because your body’s immune system sends macrophages out to get rid of these damaged cell contents. However, because the ICRW we discussed earlier inhibits your cells’ ability to communicate, this message is not received by the immune system.

Now these damaged cell parts sit idle, and over time in a nutrient-rich environment begin to clone exponentially. This process is believed to be the cause of dramatically increased tumor rates in people with long-term exposure to EMF radiation.

Symptoms from Cell Phone Radiation

The disruption of cell communication and replication from cell phone EMF radiation causes a variety of symptoms, including:

  • Fatigue
  • Trouble Sleeping
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
  • Brain Fog or Trouble Concentrating
  • Skin Irritation
  • Atypical Chest Pain
  • Stiff Muscles, especially in the Neck

Long-term health issues can include:

  • Brain Tumors
  • Leukemia
  • DNA Damage
  • Heart Disease
  • Hormonal Imbalance
  • Sleep Disorders
  • Alzheimer’s Dementia

How You Can Protect Yourself

Let’s face it, smart phones are beyond convenient at this point, they are essentially mandatory for our modern world. There are many cell phone cases on the market that advertise blocking EMF radiation, but what they often end up doing is forcing your phone to work harder to maintain its signal. And for every bar of lost signal, your phone has been shown to increase its power by 1000 percent just to maintain a connection. This power boost dramatically increases the amount of EMF radiation the phone puts out, which increases the damage to your body.

Even if a cell phone case were to be created that didn’t cause this issue, it’s nearly impossible to block all of the radiation from getting to the body without inhibiting our ability to use the device. The key is not to try to block or absorb the radiation from your cell phone, but instead to change the waveform so your body does not recognize it as a foreign invader, triggering the domino effect of cell destruction.

I’m approached weekly about different EMF protection products, but very few prove their worth when the rubber meets the road. I’m impressed with Aulterra products, which “neutralize” EMF radiation, allowing you to use your cell phone, laptop, and other EMF-producing products without harming the body. I had the pleasure of talking with Aulterra’s founder Kim Dandurand in my private Inner Circle group recently. He told me more about how Aulterra’s products protect the body and why he prices them so affordably.

I have two favorite products from Aulterra. The first is a small sticker you put on your cell phone called the “Neutralizer.” I have one on my cell phone and I can tell you the difference it makes is incredible. The Aulterra Neutralizer protects your body through two different mechanisms: a biochemical defense response and a physical alteration of the cell phone signal. It weakens mobile phone radiation frequency peaks by at least 30 percent while completely eliminating shoulder peaks, and is effective across the entire radio and microwave spectrum of radiation emitted by your cell phone. It uses a proprietary blend of rare-earth element-enriched minerals to neutralize the harmful effects of the electromagnetic fields generated by your cell phone.

The second must-have product is the Whole House Plug. It’s a small gray plug that has a blend of paramagnetic materials inside, similar to the neutralizing sticker for my phone, and spreads the same neutralizing technology throughout the wiring in your home. This protects you not only from the electronics and electrical wiring in your home, but also is able to neutralize ambient EMF radiation as it enters your home.

    I will be ordering a ton of these to bring back to Israel where everyone lives on a cellphone. If this protection works as you say, what an advancement for humanity.

    • Stephaney Berry

      I totally agree, I would love to order them for everyone I know, at least for my house. If its worse in Israel than it is here in America I feel bad for you. Most people I know joke about the zombie generation that we are bringing up. Very sad!! They have even done studies that show we are not using the part of our brains for storing information anymore because of the way we just Google everything. So Sad. You see family’s out at dinner, parks, etc. Not really interactive, they just check their phones every few minutes like they are waiting on the Word of the Lord to come through that device SCARY! Take care

  2. JoCarole Carpenter

    From your remarks, it looks like you ARE the brat! An obnoxious one at that. How dare you talk like that to someone who is saying how she feels. How do you know she doesn’t work? She’s not allowed her own opinion?? Only you are? I totally agree with her. However, I do agree about having to have a cell phone on the job today and not being able to work without one. So, in that case any help to minimize EMF’s should be appreciated and put into effect asap. But everyone is free to do what they want to do, just sad that some people would rather ignore the facts and the science behind these facts. But that alone will not keep the EMF’s from penetrating your body especially the body part that the cell phone is closest to. Talking on the phone with it next to your head will create a hot spot in the brain. Storing it in your bra (which is horrific) will cause EMF’s in that area There are just too many facts for this little space. To start with (if you brave enough) google lloyd burrel @ Electricsense.

    @Mary – your comment is full of assumptions and insults. Maybe the EMFs are getting to you, or you are just bitter.

  4. Kathleen

    Thank you so much, Ann Louise for this information on how to mitigate the effects of our cell phone radiation!

  5. Beth R.

    Great information! I will check into the device for my house from Aulterra. I’ve known about this general problem for a while but did not know what to do about it.

  6. Janette Warren

    Thank you Ann … as always, on top of things. I was so blessed to have crossed the path of a woman in the 1992 that shared EMF issues with me, I have been using EMF products since then. The additional problems now though are insidious, SpaceX Elon Musk will be putting up hundreds of satelites in the atmosphere to sign to 100% of the earth 5G wifi … we MUST create a documentary on the dangers of this and go nuts with officials! The microwave radiation in Wifi and the Electric Smartmeters are really killing people … or making them so unwell, and scatter brained, that they are not normally functioning. May I suggest another company that can address the Wifi up to 4G (NOT 5G AS THERE IS NOT ANTIDOTE YET) … lessemf.com AND to take the ASEA redox signaling molecules drink to keep our cells intact and able to constantly repaired from the EMF and microwave damage. Please everyone do some youtubing on 5G as well as consider joining a FB page on the redox: Redox signaling molecules skin brain body detox EMF Klinghardt …

  7. Jenn

    This works for not just cell phones but tablets and laptops ect right?

    • Team ALG

      Jenn, Yes it will work on all of your devices, even your home router.
