Can you protect yourself from EMFs and 5G?

I’m concerned

A news story caught my eye this week about the full 5G rollout by 2 major cellular phone carriers this month. And not in a good way.

I am the furtherest from a conspiracy theorist. My law school education and attorney career trained me question everything and do my own research ever since I entered a law classroom in August 1990.

When I saw news coverage about the airline industry pushing back on the rollout, all my red flags went up. While the airline industry is looking at it from the perspective that 5G technology may interfere with aircraft electronics, I’m looking at whether it is interfering with us at a cellular and DNA level.

This article from the Karelian Heritage business explains how 5G is different than electro-magnetic frequencies and traditional WiFi. 5G only travels small distances (about 150 meters) which is why there are and will be so many towers. That concerns me.

I read an article last week from a doctor who outlined how humans are far sicker now because of the diseases and ailments that are filling up hospitals that never happened 40 years ago. (I forgot to save it and now can’t find it.) Why is that?

My lawyer brain has been putting these pieces together for years and I don’t like what the puzzle shows. As a society with medical advancements, we should be getting healthier. But we are getting sicker and sicker each year and much of it cannot be explained or prevented.

What’s going on? I don’t know, but I know about vibrational frequencies so I’m looking at health and wellness from that perspective now.

Because I understand energetic vibrational frequencies, and knowing that everything that has ever been created and existed was made up of frequencies, I am concerned what these invisible frequencies are doing to our body at a cellular and DNA level. Is it wearing us down to where we can’t even fight off basic viruses and diseases?

When I read this 2011 report from the World Health Organization International Agency for Research on Cancer labeling radio frequency electromagnetic fields as being possibly carcinogenic, and knowing we now cannot get away from all of the unseen frequencies the surround us 24/7, what can we do?

I am not here to speculate or go down the conspiracy rabbit hole. Instead, I would rather give some recommendations on what I am doing. And I will continue to update this as I research proven techniques.

What does the research say?

Shungite and Black Tourmaline crystals

For years I have researched ways that we can protect ourselves from unseen frequencies, short of wearing a tin foil hat. There are a LOT of crazy claims being made about products being sold. They may work but I’m not sold on them because claims are made without proof.

And I like proof, not fluff.


There’s a lot of talk about the protection offered by the crystal Shungite. So I did some research.
I know that crystals have a physical benefit to our body. Dr. Bruce Lipton, in The Biology Belief, talks about how our DNA has antennas that are constantly adjusting themselves to their surroundings. I would rather have my DNA adjusting to crystals than unseen frequencies.
Shungite, only found in the Karelia region of Russia, may be the protection we are seeking. It has the best natural source of fullerenes (a carbon-based molecular formation) which are antioxidants that create a coat of armor around our cells and aids in EMF protection. Make sure you have Type 1 Noble or Elite Shungite (there are 3 types and I go into detail about them in my Advanced Crystal Healing class). Elite Shungite has the most carbon which is important for the fullerenes benefit when it is placed in water to drink.
Message me if you would like to purchase Elite Shungite from my private crystal store.

Check out these articles if you like to geek out on Shungite research like I do:
  • WebMD has an article about Shungite and comes to the conclusion that Shungite is a safe complimentary medical therapy
  • This study showed that shielding the body with Shungite decreased the severity of damage produced by high-frequency electromagnetic radiation.
  • This study showed that Shungite has an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory action against UVB-induced skin damage.
  • Fullerenes (naturally found in Shungite) were discovered in 1996 by scientists Robert Curl, Richard Smalley & Harold Kroto and they won the Nobel Prize for Chemistry for their discovery.
  • Fullerenes, which are found in shungite, are a type of carbon nanostructure (CNS). CNSs are different physical forms of carbon. According to a 2017 review of studies, CNSs can destroy harmful pathogens. They reportedly work by damaging the cell walls of bacteria and viruses. Additionally, when CNSs interact with microbes, the microbes lose electrons and die. Woah!
  • This report describes how Shungite is an oxidatively modified carbon and is an efficient material for removing radionuclides (radioactive nuclides) from water. Another woah!!!

Black Tourmaline

Crystals that are iron- and aluminum-based can help to transmute unseen frequencies into beneficial frequencies. Think of this crystal as a Coat of Armor for your home and body! Iron and Aluminum absorb electromagnetic frequencies and transmute (or harmonize) the energy

Black Tourmaline is pyroelectric which means it transforms one type of energy to another type of energy and polarizes negatively and positively charged atoms. It is also piezoelectric which means it can produce an electrical charge. Without getting too geeky these explain why Black Tourmaline is beneficial for attracting the EMFs and grounding them, and beneficial for protecting our energy field and the energy in our home

Check out this study found that Tourmaline crystals can increase leukocyte functions, white blood cells that are responsible for protecting your body from infection. WOW!

UPDATE January 20, 2022: I have been working with an EMF radiation detector device since publishing this blog. The detector has shown that Shungite and Black Tourmaline drastically diminish the electrical field output of microwaves, computers, smart phones, TVs, and anything that is plugged in. WOW!


Earthing at Loch Lochy (Scotland)

When you connect to the Earth with your bare feet it creates an electron exchange that is anti-inflammatory, calming and de-stressing. There’s quite a bit of science behind this and here’s one study that explains how it works and how it can protect us from degenerative diseases.

We know it works because when we walk on the beach or in the woods we feel calm. When it is too freezing to put your feet on the ground, put essential oils made from trees on the bottom of your feet (like Black Spruce, Blue Spruce, Cedarwood, Cypress or the Grounding blend) and/or hold or wear a calming crystal like Black Tourmaline, Shungite, Blue Lace Agate, or Amethyst.

Here’s what I do

1.  I place Shungite and Black Tourmaline around my home. It’s in the 4 corners of the main floor of my home to ground it. It’s on top of my WiFi router, in between me and my computer, and in front of my TV. I have a Shungite patch on my smart phone and computer, I wear as jewelry, and I drink Shungite water (don’t drink Black Tourmaline water).
2.  Grounding. Keeping myself grounded to Earth is important. VibesUp has some great products that are meant to help with grounding. Click here to check out the products (this is an affiliate link because I have done my due diligence for you in researching this supplier). The EMF/Electronic Toxins page has ALL of the things we should have, including EMF protection pads to go under our pet’s food and water bowls! Brilliant!
3.  Cell Phone. Do not wear it on your body. And when talking do not put it up to your ear, use the speaker option. Remove from your bedroom at night or turn off WiFi if you use it at an alarm. Place a Shungite or Black Tourmaline grounding patch on the back of your phone.
4. If you have a smart utility meter on your home, put Shungite and/or Black Tourmaline inside your home where the meter is connected. Remove all beds (ro pets and people) from that area and surround it with crystals.
Shungite with Grounding essential oil blend for topical application
5. I topically apply grounding essential oils to my body daily, including on the bottom of my feet and forehead before bedtime (you’ll sleep great)! If you put chips of Shungite in a roller bottle with grounding oils, that is DOUBLE the protection benefit!
6. And eat a really healthy organic whole foods diet that nourishes your body with life rather than dead processed food.
While we may not know the exact protection we are getting from being proactive, just knowing that we are doing something will help ease fears and feel better.
If you have other ideas or other products that have proven science behind them, please leave a comment so I can check them out!

You have control over your health & well-being

As we continue to live in challenging times, the one thing that I hear is “we have no control over what is happening in our world and I feel so helpless.” I get it … but I’m here to tell you that YOU have more power and control than you may realize.

We are experiencing many challenges when it comes to our physical health. And that is putting stress and pressure on our emotional and mental health. And then we are being bombarded with energetic changes. Put it all together and #hotmess sums it up pretty well, right?

But you actually have power and control over your health & well-being, along with your family and pet(s) health and well-being. Because what you feed yourself (food, thoughts, emotions, and experiences) will determine your health and well-being.

If you’re like me, when you’re doing something proactive, you feel more confident and happier rather than waiting for something or someone to come to the rescue. And right now, the only rescue that can happen are the steps that YOU take. Ready?

My Top 10 Lifestyle Techniques

There are things that you can do daily that will help you regain control and joy as you maintain or improve your health and well-being. I want to share the top 10 things that I am doing daily and how it’s helping me thrive in all areas of my life no matter what is going on around me.

  • Food = Be intentional about what you consume. Make sure it’s real whole foods and organic if possible because it will give life and energy to your body. There are too many toxins being put in food and sprayed on products. That beautiful strawberry may actually harm your health if it’s sprayed. Spending a little more money on whole foods that are organic will save you a lot of money down the road in lost wages and high medical bills due to illness. While white sugar, white flour, genetically modified wheat and processed foods will harm you from the inside out by creating inflammation. If you find yourself binging on junk food during stressful times, let’s work on stress levels (see below). But in the meantime, why not retrain your taste buds to crave veggies or other whole organic foods during stress? A few years ago I forced myself to grab organic greens (brussel sprouts, broccoli, leafy greens) when I was stressed and IT WORKED! And that’s now what I crave when I’m comfort eating.
  • Water = It is important that we drink half our body weight in ounces everyday with filtered/purified water. Drinking water throughout the day (every 20 minutes take a sip) can flush your throat of viruses that want to enter the body that way. And water helps our bodies to eliminate toxins. What I love to do is add a drop of Young Living Lemon Vitality essential oil (a safe dietary essential oil) or Young Living’s Vitality Drops in Bergamot-Grapefruit that also contains beneficial electrolytes. I now crave water more than ever before!
  • Stress = Keeping daily stress at bay is really important for so many reasons. For your physical health it reduces binge eating, digestive and cardiovascular stressors, sleep issues and so much more. For your emotional health de-stressing techniques can calm the emotional rollercoaster that can result in physical issues. For your mental health it helps you focus on what is important in your life. You can literally stress yourself into physical problems. What I like to do is diffuse calming essential oils like Peace & Calming when I am working or at the end of the day. Citrus essential oils like Orange are calming yet they keep you alert so that you can focus and make good decisions. Because when we are stressed, our brain is not capable of making rational decisions. I also do deep breathing for a minute when I find myself getting worked up. And I get outside to sit or do a walking meditation along the river or Lake Michigan because nature has a calming effect on our nervous system.
  • Sleep = Getting 8 hours of quality sleep that is not drug-induced is so important to our overall health and well-being. When your brain can naturally go into deep sleep and REM modes, your body can detox, repair and rejuvenate while you sleep. Sometimes I have trouble getting to sleep or staying asleep, especially during a full moon or when the energetics of the planet are heightened. My sleep protocol involves putting away technology and TV an hour before bedtime, not eating/drinking at least 2 hours before bedtime, calming essential oils in my bedside diffuser (like Clary Sage with Lavender essential oils), Frankincense on my forehead, and Progessence Plus on my wrists (every women should be using this essential oil blend).
  • Nature = Being out in nature and moving is so important to our overall well-being. When you can put your bare feet on the ground our bodies soak up electrons from Earth that creates an anti-inflammatory and calming benefit. This is why I have been spending time at Lake Michigan every week since the weather warmed up. A 2012 study in the Journal of Environmental Public Health found that earthing promotes better sleep, reduces pain, reduces chronic stress, improve health disorders and create overall well-being for longevity. So whether you go outside and hug a tree or plant your feet on the ground, do this every day even just for a few minutes. And if weather prevents you from earthing, bring the earth inside with tree essential oils (like Cedarwood, Black Spruce and Blue Spruce) and grounding crystals like Black Tourmaline and Shungite.
  • Supplements = Even with an organic whole food diet, we often need to supplement what we eat with vitamins, minerals and other supplements. But not all supplements are made the same. Make sure that you are taking a whole-food supplement that does not contain fillers or synthetics. I personally take essential oil-infused whole food supplements. If you want to ramp up your wellness plan, check these out:
    • Vitamin A is important for a strong immune and respiratory system, and is also beneficial for vision especially since many people are spending more time online for work or staying connected to family and friends;
    • Vitamin B Complex is your happy vitamin that is also beneficial for your eyes, brain, digestive health and energy;
    • Vitamin C is necessary for repair of all body tissues and is beneficial for a strong immune system;
    • Vitamin D3 is best taken thru Mother Sun but taking the supplement daily is also beneficial for calcium absorption for strong bones, a strong immune system to fight disease and combatting the blues;
    • Zinc regulates immune function, decreases risk of age-related chronic diseases, and helps with eye health including preventing age-related macular degeneration;
    • Omega 3s have been researched for supporting lung, brain and cardiovascular health as well as improving the appearance of skin, banishing the blues, improving eye health and fight inflammation;
    • Turmeric & Curcumin are known for their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits when combined with Black Pepper to help with absorption, beneficial for brain and cardiovascular health, and helps with depression.
  • Detox your Home = We are washing our hands more often and probably cleaning our homes more often too. If you are using toxic hand soap, hand purifier and home cleaners, are you really creating a healthy and safe environment? NO! Plant-based cleaners that are FREE of Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and are important to overall health. And make sure the air in your home is clean. One of the easiest things to do is to replace all plug-ins, candles and sprays with a cool-mist essential oil diffuser and diffuse therapeutic-grade pure essential oils (not fragrance oils). Also switch to plant-based cleaners. But please do not be GREEN-WASHED by the pretty green labels in the cleaner isle at the grocery store. If you look at the ingredients and see Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, don’t buy it! I use the line of Thieves products from Young Living because I understand and have researched all of the ingredients, and the essential oils naturally clean so that it’s safe for kids and pets.
  • Detox Your Skincare = What you put on your skin can be as harmful as what you put in your mouth. So are you willing to ingest your skincare? Probably not unless you are using a truly toxic-free plant-based skincare product. The ingredients in almost all skincare and makeup products are frightening and IT’S LEGAL! My lawyer brain gets really angry about this topic. Because what you put on your skin leeches in to your blood stream. Understanding ingredients is really important, but also trusting the company to be honest about the ingredients is just as important. For my skin, I only use Young Living’s skincare and Savvy Minerals Makeup.
  • Avoid negative people/situations = Please stop watching the news and limit your time on social media. All it does is feed your worry, promote shaming by other people and implant the idea that you have no control over your life.  It was easy for me to get sucked back in to news reports when our world went crazy in March. But when I stepped away I realized that there are amazing beautiful things happening in our world right now. I also liberally use the “30 day snooze” and “unfollow” button on Facebook because I see too many friends getting sucked into negative energy. So step away from the negative people, negative situations, negative news, and if you are in a negative job we are in energy where you are being asked (and possibly forced) into reconsidering your path. Make some decisions in that regard before the decisions are made for you.
  • Daily Self-Care & Fun = It is important that you do things every day to feed your soul. I did an entire yearlong series on The Year of You Self-Care in 2018 because self-care is not getting a mani-pedi or massage. Self-care is nurturing your inner self and soul to evolve and is only something you can do. And if you don’t do it, no one else can. So create a morning/daily ritual of what feeds your soul. For me, it’s the 3 Ms: meditation (sometimes a walking meditation, laying in a crystal grid, or learning the art of surrender which is so hard for me), movement and mindfulness where I journal and visualize my day rather than letting my day smash me around. But it’s also about having fun. As we adult, it is too easy to be filled with responsibilities, concerns and worry. And our to-do list will never be completed. Taking time daily to do something fun for you will feed your inner self. For me it’s either time with friends, time at Lake Michigan or tending to my fairy garden.

Vacation & Grounding = Wellbeing

Culzean Castle
Culzean Castle

Last week I was in the glorious land of Scotland for a much-needed vacation. Did you know that most Americans leave 2 weeks of earned vacation time on the table every year (that’s 175 million vacation days)? And many people work in places where they don’t receive vacation time? Whether I have a stay-cation at home, or travel to one of my life-list vacation spots, I always give myself at least a week of downtime twice a year … no excuses. Otherwise, I’d be a mess!

With all of my work and various projects, I find that I’m involved with technology far too much each day. This can really cause the body and mind to become frenetic and unbalanced. And while a vacation and technology break is essential for all of our wellbeing, so is earthing or grounding.

Meditating at Loch Ness
Meditating at Loch Ness

On my travels to Scotland, I read a book called Earthing. It discusses the powerful healing connection that we must make to Mother Earth everyday in order to maintain health and wellbeing. I highly recommend reading it. Earthing (or grounding) is as simple as placing your bare feet on the ground, sand, or in a natural body of water (ocean or lake). The positive electrons from the Earth infuse into our body which is filled with far too many negative electrons (which ends up causing inflammation which is the root of many diseases). If connecting directly with the ground is difficult or not possible (based on weather or urban environment), then the Earthing Institute has these earthing mats that are great for people and pets!

So while I was unplugging from technology in Scotland, I was plugging into the healing matrix of Mother Earth! Scotland is a beautiful place with the most breath-taking scenery so it was easy to feel relaxed and well. I spent most of my time out in the western isles and the highlands (away from the big cities). And I also made sure that I spent some time soaking my feet in the many Lochs and meditating with the quiet scenery.

It was also a great place to rock hound. Check out my rock hounding video!

So here’s my wellness prescription for you today: go outside, take off your shoes, and plant your tootsies directly onto the ground. Stay there for 10-30 minutes and you will notice how much calmer and balanced you feel. And aim to do this everyday. You will be amazed at the results.

Happy Grounding!
