  • Design Systems for Life & Synergistics 2015

    An Introductory Awareness Course 3

    Wellbeing: A synergistic effect comprised of air, water, soil, light, energy, sight, sound, smell, taste and touch.

    Our wellbeing is framed by both personal experiences, the environment and built structures.

    Time within built structures is approximately 90% of a day. This time is impacted by energy, equipment and devices that harness or uses it. Electro-Magnetic Frequency (EMF) is how we harness it.

    Built structures are being inundated by new technological advances and smart systems touted as must-have enhancements to the modern way of life.

    The objective of this presentation is Specific Awareness of the effects of building systems on living beings.

    Being well is the only true wealth.

  • PRE-TEST 4

    12 Questions What is EMF? Name five sources of EMF in your daily activities. What is radio frequency (RF)? Name three sources of RF in your daily activities. What is electro-stress (ES)? What are the synergistic factors that may cause ES within the

    body? Why does ES cause health issues? Name ten health issues associated with ES. What is Rapid Aging Syndrome? What is electro-smog, and how do you measure it? How do you protect yourself from electro-smog? Who is the Wellbeing Trifecta?

  • THE ELECTRIC SYSTEM OF THE HUMAN 8

    Humans are a complex set of electro-chemical processes where the scales of energy manifest in each endocrine area and support either health or disease.

    Measurable fields (veritable) can be

    measured by man-made electro-devices.

    Veritable field are the most accepted way of

    measurement across scientific disciplines.

    Immeasurable fields (putative or subtle) cannot be measured by electro-devices; putative fields are also known as biofields and can be measured by pendular sciences.

  • THE HUMAN HEALTH CONDITIONS 9

    HEALTHY UNHEALTHY

    Human bodies require a balanced energy spectrum to maintain optimal physical, emotional and mental health.

    Unbalanced energies disrupt the bodys functioning systems.

    Exposure to toxins creates potential for bodily dysfunctions.

  • ENVIROMENTAL TOXINS 10

    TOXINS THAT AFFECT HUMAN HEALTH COME IN MANY FORMS: BIOTOXINS: Coming from

    plants and animals such as: bacteria, molds and fungus

    CHEMICAL AGENTS HEAVY METALS RADIATION: Gamma/Radon TERRESTRIAL RADIATION:

  • TOXIN: ELECTROMAGNETIC FREQUENCIES 11

    HIGHLIGHTS IN 2005, WORLD HEALTH ORGANZATION (WHO) STATED ELECTROSENSITIVITY MAY BE PSYCHOSOMATIC. IN 2010 DR DOMINIQUE BELPOMME, PRESIDENT OF THE FRENCH ASSOCIATION OF RESEARCH IN THERAPEUTICS AGAINST CANCER STATED: WE KNOW WITH CERTAINTY THAT ELECTOMAGNETIC HYPERSENSITIVITY (EHS) IS NOT PSYCHOSOMATIC.

    IN 2011 WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION (WHO) AND THE INTERNATIONAL AGENCY FOR RESEARCH ON CANCER (IARC) HAS CLASSIFIED RADIOFREQUENCY ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS AS POSSIBLY CARCINOGENIC TO HUMANS (GROUP 2B).

    HALF DR BELPOMMES EHS PATIENTS HAVE MULTIPLE CHEMICAL SENSITIVITY (MCS) AND MCS AND EHS SHARE THE SAME BRAIN ABNORMALITIES.

    30% HAVE HIGH LEVELS OF HISTAMINE, 50% HAVE TOO MUCH STRESS PROTIENS, MOST HAVE LOW LEVELS OF MELATONIN (POTENT ANTI-CANCER HORMONE), 30% HAVE ANTIBODIES AND PROTEINS THAT ARE SIGNS OF THERMAL SHOCK AND BRAIN DAMAGE.

    AMERICAN DISABILITY ACT BOARD IN 2002 RECOGNIZES THAT MCS AND EHS MAY BE CONSIDERED DISABILITIES UNDER THE ADA IF THEY SO SEVERLY IMPAIR THE NEUROLOGICAL, RESPIRATORY OR OTHER FUNCTIONS OF AN INDIVIDUAL, THAT IT SUBSTANTIALLY LIMITS ONE OR MORE OF THE INDIVIDUALS MAJOR LIFE ACTIVITIES.

    EMF IS SYNERGISTIC WITH HEAVY METALS AND MOLD THAT AFFECTS HUMAN HEALTH ADVERSELY.

  • COMMON SYMPTOMS OF EMF EXPOSURE 12

    Cardiac palpitations Problems with muscles, joints, and bones/

    movement difficult Headaches/nausea Irritability and aggression Depression Fatigue/feeling not refreshed after a

    nights sleep Dizziness Fatigue Confusion Poor sleep Pain-related to nerves Headaches Feelings of discomfort Memory Loss

    Ringing in the ear Skin problems Cardiovascular issues Dizziness Loss of appetite Movement difficult Infertility/miscarriages Behavioral problems Learning disabilities Tingling or burning on the face (cell phone) Poor response to medical treatments and/

    or overmedication of pharmaceuticals Ringing in the ear Skin problems Loss of appetite

  • RAPID AGING SYNDROME (RAS) 14

    Dr Magda Havas, BSC PhD, Trent University, Peterborough, Canada

    RAS signs are: fatigue, sleep disturbances, headaches, feeling discomfort, difficulty concentrating, depression, memory loss, visual disruptions, irritability, hearing disruptions, skin problems, cardiovascular, dizziness, loss of appetite and movement difficulties that occur within 300 meters or 984 feet of an EMF source like emitter Radio Frequency towers hosting antennas. These are signs that at a cellular level, things are not well. For instance, after exposure to these waves for as little as 10 minutes, one can see changes in blood viscosity, circulation and immune response. You age from the inside out!
