Evidence-Based EMF Therapy and Protection

The color blue, a radio wave, and an x-ray beam are each fields of light particles that travel in waves. Also known as “electromagnetic fields” (EMFs), these waves of energy range from weak to powerful. Long waves have relatively little energy per photon. Short waves can knock the electrons right out of your DNA.

Only a tiny part of the spectrum includes the light that we as humans can actually see: violet, blue, green, yellow, orange and red. EMFs can be healthy or harmful. Ultraviolet and blue light are both. Ultraviolet helps us create Vitamin D, and it causes sunburns and skin cancer. Blue light can kill P acnes bacteria, which clears the face, but it can also hurt the eyes.

Red light is a healing EMF because it creates a cascade of energy starting at the mitochondria. This is why red light therapy works for so many problems. EMF Channel explores all the ways the EMFs can help us heal, and how to protect ourselves from the ones that do us harm.
