High frequency

High-frequency radiation is an issue of growing importance, especially at a time when technology is advancing at a rapid pace. 3G, 4G and now 5G networks are becoming more common and spreading rapidly. In addition, there are other sources of radio frequency radiation such as cordless phones, WLAN routers and other smart devices that are ubiquitous in many households and workplaces. These devices generate what is often referred to as “electrosmog,” an electromagnetic field that can have potentially negative effects on human health and well-being.
According to building biology limits, values above 10 uW/m2 are already to be classified as severe exposure. There are scientific studies that indicate that such radio frequency radiation can lead to a range of health problems, from sleep disturbances and headaches to more serious conditions such as increased risk of cancer. In addition, it is believed that they can disrupt the natural, positive energies in a room, which negatively affects the overall well-being.
Harmonizing these high frequency sources is therefore a critical step in creating a healthy and energetically balanced living and working environment. Different approaches can be taken. Some people rely on technical solutions such as shielding paints, special curtains or shielding films for windows to minimize outside exposure. Others use special devices that emit harmonizing frequencies to counteract the negative effects of radiation.
In addition, you can also rely on behavioral changes: Don’t leave cell phones in the bedroom, turn off WLAN routers at night, and switch to wired connections wherever possible. In work environments, employers can invest in low-radiation technologies and educate employees about the risks and protective measures.
It is important to create awareness of this type of radiation exposure and take proactive steps to minimize exposure and harmonize the environment. The goal is to strike a balance between the benefits of modern technology and maintaining our health and well-being. By using technology consciously and responsibly, we can create an environment that is not only technologically advanced, but also energetically and healthfully beneficial.

Low frequency

Low-frequency electromagnetic fields are an integral part of our modern way of life, but they are also a source of electrosmog that raises health concerns. These fields are generated by the electrical installations in our homes and workplaces, such as power cords, outlets, and electrical appliances. Interestingly, these installations emit electromagnetic fields even when no consumer, such as an electrical device, is switched on.
In building biology studies, a potential-free measurement of 10 V/M is considered to be a critical value for a strong exposure of the body. Beyond this level, it is believed that the low-frequency fields can have serious health effects. These range from sleep disturbances and difficulty concentrating to more serious conditions like cardiac arrhythmias and a potentially increased risk of cancer.
The position of electrical installations in living spaces can also play a role. For example, a wall full of electrical outlets directly behind the headboard of a bed can lead to greater exposure to electrosmog, especially considering that the body is in a regenerative state during sleep and could therefore be more sensitive to such influences.
To minimize these risks, there are various approaches to reduce exposure to low-frequency electromagnetic fields. These include technical solutions such as using shielded cords and outlets, installing power disconnects that cut off the flow of electricity in unused circuits, or deliberately arranging furniture in the room to keep distance from potential sources of radiation.
Furthermore, it is advisable to have one’s own living space examined from a building biology point of view in order to identify potential sources of radiation and to be able to take specific measures. There are specially trained building biologists who can carry out such examinations and give concrete recommendations for individual cases.
Ultimately, the goal is to create awareness and make informed decisions, both when furnishing the living space and when purchasing electrical appliances. By being aware of the risks and taking proactive steps to minimize radiation exposure, we can contribute to a healthier and less stressful living environment. It’s a balancing act between the conveniences of modern technology and protecting our health and well-being.
