The short answer is : they are little devices you stick onto your phones or laptops to neutralize the radiation emissions and yes, they worked for me!
Last year, I was having terrible trouble sleeping and would wake up feeling hung over and groggy. It would take me half the morning to feel human! My good friend Robyn at Overcoming Overwhelm, was chatting to me about it and suggested it might be the IPOD touch I was using every night under my pillow (with, ironically a relaxation application on repeat!).
Sure enough, when I stopped doing this, I improved dramatically! I started investigating more and pretty much diagnosed myself with having electromagnetic sensitivity. A great resource I found was a book called Healthy Home Healthy Family by Nicole Bijlisma.
If I talked on the cordless home phone for longer than 15 minutes or worked on the computer for hours, I’d notice these symptoms
* terrible headaches
* a hot ear and head
* an earache (on the side I was talking on)
* a disoriented, groggy feeling
* half a day of feeling out of sorts and not right (sick!)
So, as well as limiting my exposure to these things, I was also interested in using harmonizers to cut some of the radiation.
When Lauren at New Age Child mentioned them on her Facebook page one day, it prompted me to take action and try them out! I bought five – one for each of our phones, one for the cordless and one for my son’s laptop.
The harmonizers fit in the back of your phone, next to the battery. I didn’t stick mine on using the adhesive, because I may want to use them again in a different device.
So, did I notice a difference? Yes! To be honest, I was a little skeptical as I wasn’t sure exactly how these work!
However, I notice a huge difference when I use the cordless home phone (I don’t use my mobile to speak on very often and never longer than five minutes). I no longer get the severe symptoms I was getting. I still get a little bit of a tingly warmth around my ear, if I talk for long periods of time but that is it. Significant improvement!
I still think limiting exposure is the first defence – but we still need to live in modern society (and once I start chatting, it’s hard to stop!). I know I rest a little more easy knowing my son has the harmonizer in his phone and laptop too.
Hopefully, our brain cells are getting a little less fried! If you want to read more about how they work, go here. I don’t pretend to understand the science – techno geek I am not! 😉
Anyway, I was telling Lauren what a great improvement they made and she offered to give me THREE of her harmonizers for the blog, so you guys could try them out too.
