Influenza’s Link with EMFs


The name of the disease comes from the word “influence” as it was thought to be caused by the influence of the cosmic bodies; the sun, moon and stars.

The correlation between sun spot activity – which is electromagnetic in nature – and influenza epidemics is seen in the following article from the magazine Nature.

In 1901 Nicola Tesla was granted a patent for harvesting radiant energy. In earlier lectures Tesla explained that this radiant energy was caused mainly by radiation from the sun. I’m bringing this up here to establish that cosmic electromagnetic fields have been understood for at least 120 years. You will see in a few paragraphs the link between historical influenza and these natural EMFs, which paves the way to understanding what happened in 1889.


For more details on Tesla’s radiation harvesting patent see:

Previously in 1888 Tesla invented the polyphase AC motor which was to revolutionise industry allowing them to use alternating current for power, not just lighting and telephony. The industrial use of AC spread like wild-fire.

And now to quote from Arthur Firstenberg’s masterful history:

In 1889, most historians agree, the modern electrical era opened. And in 1889, as if the heavens had suddenly opened as well, doctors in the Americas, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia were overwhelmed by a flood of critically ill patients suffering from a strange disease that seemed to have come like a thunderbolt from nowhere, a disease that many of these doctors had never seen before. That disease was influenza, and that pandemic lasted four continuous years and killed at least one million people. Influenza is an Electrical Disease. Suddenly and inexplicably, influenza, whose descriptions had remained consistent for thousands of years, changed its character in 1889. Flu had last seized most of England in November 1847, over half a century earlier. The last flu epidemic in the United States had raged in the winter of 1874–1875. Since ancient times, influenza had been known as a capricious, unpredictable disease, a wild animal that came from nowhere, terrorized whole populations at once without warning and without a schedule, and disappeared as suddenly and mysteriously as it had arrived, not to be seen again for years or decades. It behaved unlike any other illness, was thought not to be contagious, and received its name because its comings and goings were said to be governed by the “influence” of the stars.

But in 1889 influenza was tamed. From that year forward it would be present always, in every part of the world. It would vanish mysteriously as before, but it could be counted on to return, at more or less the same time, the following year. And it has never been absent since.


Like “anxiety disorder,” influenza is so common and so seemingly familiar that a thorough review of its history is necessary to unmask this stranger and convey the enormity of the public health disaster that occurred one hundred and thirty years ago. It’s not that we don’t know enough about the influenza virus. We know more than enough. The microscopic virus associated with this disease has been so exhaustively studied that scientists know more about its tiny life cycle than about any other single microorganism. But this has been a reason to ignore many unusual facts about this disease, including the fact that it is not contagious. In 2001, Canadian astronomer Ken Tapping, together with two British Columbia physicians, were the latest scientists to confirm, yet again, that for at least the last three centuries influenza pandemics have been most likely to occur during peaks of solar magnetic activity—that is, at the height of each eleven-year sun cycle.

Pages 80–81 of The Invisible Rainbow: A History of Electricity and Life

Most people (I was one of them) PRESUME that flu is transmitted from person to person. Did you know that there is no clinical evidence to support this position? Dr. Sam Bailey does a great job at exposing the lock of evidence in the video below.

Influenza now looks like an electrical disease that presents with a virus. So are viruses contagious; and what actually is a virus? These questions opens up a whole new fascinating world – or at least it did for me. This is a wonderful rabbit hole to dive into. There has been a wealth of research for over 100 years which has run parallel to the mainstream popular theories of contagion and germ theory. Other theories like exosome theory and terrain theory fit better with empirical data. To make a start down this rabbit hole I can recommend you check out Dr. Andrew Kauffman and Dr. Tom Cowan. Look these guys up. This articles looks at the biological fact that viruses are not living entities and the theory that they are simply intracellular particles which are the building blocks of cells.

In the video below there is a 22-minute explanation by Dr. Andrew Kauffman. The virus in question is not influenza but the exact same mechanisms apply.

EMFs, Vertigo and Dizziness


This post is mostly just a summary of the published science on the association between EMFs and vertigo/dizziness.

In a study of 420,000 cases of hospitalisations in Denmark, there was a 10–20% increase of of vertigo and migraine above the standard ratio.

According to Dr Martin Pall, Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences, Washington State University – in his review of Neuropsychiatric disorders attributed to EMFs – vertigo/Dizzyness is the 7th most studied disorder. His full list of EMF disorders are:

  • Sleep disturbance/insomnia (17 studies)
  • Headache (14 studies)
  • Fatigue/tiredness (11 studies)
  • Depression/depressive symptoms (10 studies)
  • Dysesthesia (vision/hearing/olfactory dysfunction) (10 studies)
  • Concentration/attention/cognitive dysfunction (10 studies)
  • Dizziness/vertigo (9 studies)
  • Memory changes (8 studies)
  • Restlessness/tension/anxiety/stress/agitation/feeling of discomfort (8 studies)
  • Irritability (7 studies)
  • Loss of appetite/body weight (6 studies)
  • Skin tingling/burning/inflammation/dermographism (6 studies)
  • Nausea (5 studies)


In a Polish study (587 participants), dizziness was reported by 18.6% of them ( The average number of daily calls was 5 and the average duration of call was 3 minutes or less.

In a Saudi study it was found that 2.4% of participants experienced dizziness related to mobile phone use (

In a questionnaire of 17 Radiology hospital operators of MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) devices 35% said they experiences vertigo/dizziness. Obviously the general public are not exposed to MRI machines, I include this only to establish a link between magnetic fields and vertigo. (

EMFs and Sleep

Woman asleep at work

In this post we will take a look at the “modern curse” of sleep issues, as we investigate the following questions:

  • Is there historical evidence for EMFs and sleep disturbance?
  • Is household wiring a source of sleep disturbance?
  • Can you become sensitised to EMFs, similar to allergy?
  • Do non-ironising (non-thermal) radiations – such as mobile phones and WIFI – have biological effects that can disturb sleep?
  • Do EMFs reduce your body’s production of the sleep hormone, melatonin?

Actually sleep issues are not a modern curse but have been a symptom of exposure to electromagnetic fields since at least 1790 according to the research of Arthur Firstenberg, author of The Invisible Rainbow: A History of Electricity and Life.

In the 19th Century Ernest Onimus described the affliction of workers in Paris in the 1870s who were exposed to the EMFs of the telegraph machine:

These patients suffered from heart palpitations, dizziness, insomnia, weakened eyesight, and a feeling “as though a vice were gripping the back of their head.” They suffered from exhaustion, depression, and memory loss, and after some years of work a few descended into insanity.

And in 1903 Dr. E. Cronbach in Berlin gave case histories for seventeen of his telegraphist patients:

Six had either excessive perspiration or extreme dryness of hands, feet, or body. Five had insomnia. Five had deteriorating eyesight. Five had tremors of the tongue. Four had lost a degree of their hearing. Three had irregular heartbeats. Ten were nervous and irritable both at work and at home.

Here is an extract from a more recent study from Arthur Firstenberg’s book – notice the mention of insomnia:

In 2014, Japanese physician Tetsuharu Shinjyo published a before-and-after study that is a harbinger of the direction in which the world needs to go. He evaluated the health of the residents of an apartment building in Okinawa, upon whose roof cell phone antennas had been operating for a number of years. One hundred and twenty-two individuals, representing 39 of the 47 apartments, were interviewed and examined. Prior to the removal of the antennas, 21 people suffered from chronic fatigue; 14 from dizziness, vertigo, or Ménière’s disease; 14 from headaches; 17 from eye pain, dry eyes, or repeated eye infections; 14 from insomnia; 10 from chronic nosebleeds. Five months after the antennas were removed, no one in the building had chronic fatigue. No one had nosebleeds any more. No one had eye problems. Only two people still had insomnia. One still had dizziness. One still had headaches. Cases of gastritis and glaucoma resolved. Like the residents of that building before the study, the majority of the people in the world today do not know that their acute and chronic illnesses are in large part caused by electromagnetic pollution. They do not talk to each other about their health problems, and are unaware that they are shared by many of their neighbors.

And here is a study that shows Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) electricity negatively affected sleep. Note that that the exposure level was lower than occupational permissible limits as defined by ICNIRP.

House Wiring – ELF Radiation

Extremely Low Frequency radiation is usually defined in the range of 0.5–300 hertz, and the UK mains frequency of 50 hz falls into this bracket. The following short video shows the body voltage measurement of a person in a typical sleeping area. Bear in mind that, even when there are no electrical devices or lights turned on, the household wiring – particularly in the floor space – is active and transmitting a voltage signal into the sleeping area above at a frequency of 50 hertz (cycles per second).

So there is a voltage on your skin oscillating at 50 times a second while your are trying to sleep. When asleep your brain waves are supposed to be below 13 cycles per second (alpha, theta and delta waves). Can this 50 cycles per second electrical signal on your skin affect your brain’s electrical frequency in a negative way? Frequencies in the audio range can be used to slow down or speed up our brain waves through techniques such as binaural rhythms. So there is science to show that our brain waves can be brought into sync with an external frequency.

An important point surfaces here: I am not suggesting that an AC signal of 50 hertz on your skin will force your brain into sync with this. However I am suggesting it will be a factor of disturbance. Will it be a 5% factor of disturbance for you? Will it be 10% or 20%, or perhaps 50%? It depends entirely on your biology. An increasing number of the population are becoming sensitised to these artificial frequencies. What do I mean when I say sensitised?

In healthy individuals, when the immune system registers a substance as a threat, B cells, a type of white blood cell, produce antibodies. This is a process known as sensitisation and is part of the normal immune response.


Is there any science to indicate EMFs affect the immune system? Here are two papers:

Mobile Phone, Radio, and WIFI

The following is an excerpt from a peer-reviewed paper published by Elsevier, by Professor M.L. Pall:

Among the more commonly reported changes [of EMFs] are sleep disturbance/insomnia, headache, depression/depressive symptoms, fatigue/tiredness, dysesthesia, concentration/attention dysfunction, memory changes, dizziness, irritability, loss of appetite/body weight, restlessness/anxiety, nausea, skin burning/tingling/dermographism and EEG changes. In summary, then, the mechanism of action of microwave EMFs, the role of the VGCCs in the brain, the impact of non-thermal EMFs on the brain, extensive epidemiological studies performed over the past 50 years, and five criteria testing for causality, all collectively show that various non-thermal microwave EMF exposures produce diverse neuropsychiatric effects.

The full paper is here: Microwave frequency EMFs produce widespread neuropsychiatric issues (including poor sleep/insomnia).

Melatonin – the Sleep Hormone

Another EMF-related cause of poor sleep could be due to their effects on the sleep hormone, melatonin. It has been seen in a number of studies that electromagnetic fields reduce the ability of the pineal gland to produce this vital sleep and detox hormone.

It is note-worthy that melatonin is one of the body’s main antioxidant and detox hormone – not just sleep hormone. Melatonin is important in the proper function of the oesophagus sphincter and lack of melatonin can result in acid reflux, AKA Gerd. It also plays a significant role in the immune system.

The following video explains how melatonin production is affected by EMFs, leading to “almost conclusive” evidence that this is a big factor in poor sleep for at least a percentage of the population.

In the following study on workers who repaired electronic equipment it was found:

The electronic equipment repairers, exposed to ELF-EMF, are at a risk of oxidative stress and sleep insufficiency, which could be explained by lower plasma melatonin levels and higher MDA levels. Health education about the hazards of ELF-EMF, shortening of exposure time per day, and taking antioxidant vitamins should be done to ameliorate the oxidative effect of EMF on those workers.

Electronic equipment repairers exposed to EMFs are at risk of oxidative stress and sleep disorders.

Bear in mind that if you work on a computer all day you could well fall into a similar category as the workers in the above study. I have personally measured an electric field of over 1,000 V/m coming from my laptop when it is on charge.


So how do we go about addressing our exposure to these EMFs discussed above? What can we do about it?

Firstly it’s a good thing to identify and quantify exactly what it is you are being exposed to on a regular basis.

Successful remedies will take into consideration the following factors: Time; Duration of Effect; Distance from Source; Removal or Shielding. I address these issues in the post Reduce Your EMF Exposure.

Do EMFs Increase Mould Toxicity?


This information is taken from If you live in the USA and suspect mould problems please visit this site for more information and details on inspections

Most people today are engulfed in the constant exposure of EMFs generated by Wi-Fi, electricity, cell phones, and much more. Studies started back in the 80’s after EMF waves were starting to increase and the fears of cancer started to emerge. Results have varied throughout the years but, as the amount of EMF exposure increases, so does the public’s concern. Multiple environmental communities took action to find out just how EMF waves may affect biogenetics. 

A well known medical practitioner, Dr. Klinghardt, uncovered a connection between EMF and mould. During his research, he found that EMFs could be responsible for driving certain moulds to produce Mycotoxins. In other words, electromagnetic fields could be making moulds more aggressive and reactive.

Studies showed elongated exposure to any type of EMF over a course of a month can make mould and bacteria grow at an exceptional rate. The mould spores grew at 600 times their regular rate due to the radiation exposure. Additionally, this studies shows evidence of increased mycotoxin production amongst certain species moulds.

Dr. Klinghardt performed a mold plate experiment which compared a mold plate shielded from electromagnetic fields to an unprotected mold plate exposed to electromagnetic fields.  The unprotected mold plate showed a drastic increase in the number of spores produced. 

This research suggests that molds are highly sensitive to electromagnetic fields. In the last 20 years if you measured the density of electromagnetic fields that we are exposed to, the change is significant. If you measure the amount of cell phone radiation the air, it is now several million times higher than it was just 10 years ago.

Obviously the presence of mould is a problem all on it’s own and, as the source of health-damaging toxins, needs addressing at the source.

Also getting the toxin out of our bodies requires a bit of know-how. Here is an article by Dr. Axe for a starter:

Genes – Remotely Edited by a Virus and EMFs

Here’s a summary: In the disciplines of gene editing (CRISPR/Cas9), and remote neuron activation (optogenetics), the process is achieved by injecting a modified virus into a host. So through an injection delivery (eg, vaccine) it is possible to both alter the host genes and to turn neuron on and off in the brain… remotely.

Electromagnetic radiation (EMR) in the wavelength range of 280–315 nm (UV light) can trigger brain neurons and control the emotions and behaviour of animals. This science is called optogenetics. First the neurons are targeted by a modified virus which allows the insertion of a protein into the DNA strand. DNA responds by activating a targeted gene when activated by the EMR at this frequency – which then alters mood, thought, and physical action.

The following link explains how this process works and shows an example of a mouse being triggered by ultraviolet light (280–315 nm).

Notice (at 1:32) the process is triggered by a modified virus.

Bear in mind that the UV light does not have to be strapped to the mouse’s head! This is just for the sake of this demo. Also bear in mind that different protein/gene combinations are likely to respond to different EM frequencies. For example this could result in genes that are triggered by EMF which is outside of the visible spectrum.

The following video is not without controversy. It is part of a leaked lecture at the Pentagon. “Fact checker debunkers” claim it was done by actors. Nevertheless everything that is said is achievable with available technology. You decided.

The fact that a lab-modified virus is needed to start the process should be cause for an eyebrow to be raised. Here is an explanation of the process: (TIP: load the page then search for “virus”)

Understand that the blood-brain barrier (BBB) can be opened by electromagnetic fields – such as that in the wifi and mobile comms range. And now the virus can pass through the BBB into the brain. See

Not only can genes be turned on and off through optogenetics, they can be rebuilt, modified and re-modelled (for whatever purpose) using a technique called CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing. (The two techniques can also be combined; see Here we see an interesting article about who’s baking this technology:

Before you think this tech is years away from us, there are companies out there that you can order a custom built CRISPR/Cas9 RNA virus as a delivery system for gene editing! Just look it up for yourself.

Perhaps the fact the current vaccine under development now will be based around a custom RNA messenger (mRNA) and will also include a modified SARS-COV-2 virus – might trigger some thought processes for you.

Virus Activation Via Electromagnetic Field


The following research paper is significant as it shows that electromagnetic fields can activate viruses in human cells:

The title of the paper provides gives a clear synopsis –
Exposure to a 50 Hz electromagnetic field induces activation of the Epstein-Barr virus genome in latently infected human lymphoid cells.

What does it mean to “activate” a virus?

Keep in mind that a virus is not alive. It is just a string of RNA/DNA surrounded by a protein shell. It contains no reproductive system, they can’t make their own energy, and they don’t respond to stimuli. What the researchers mean by “activate” is to cause the virus to be excreted, or expressed, by the living cell.

Controversially – and I would say, effectively – it is argued that a virus is similar to a solvent that is excreted by the cell to remove debris and toxins. Where does this debris or toxin that needs excreting from the living cell come from? It is the contention of medics and researchers such as Dr. Tom Cowan and Dr. Andrew Kaufman that these toxins are the result of external influences such as EMFs.

Not only does the above linked paper show that EMFs can activate virus expression, but that the DNA of living beings – including ours – can be modulated, remotely.

“This finding provides evidence that DNA can be modulated by a magnetic field.”

Another published paper shows that mobile phone radiation can also activate Epstein-Bar virus in human lymph cells.

Don’t know about you but I find all this a little disturbing:. What is even more disturbing is the possibility of your Genes – Remotely Edited by a Virus and EMFs.

Regular Sinus Problems?

Blocked sinuses

If you regularly have blocked up sinuses I want to bring two factors to your attention:

  1. Vitamin A deficiency
  2. Allergies or Mould

Regarding mould, new groundbreaking research has shown that mould becomes many times more toxic in the presence of EMFs. Read on…

Vitamin A Deficiency

Dr. Berg says that a vitamin A deficiency, which can also/alternatively be a bile deficiency, can be an issue for the sinuses. Vitamin A is fat-soluble and bile is needed to break down fats. Hence the vitamin A deficiency could be a lack of bile rather than a lack of vitamin A.

Cod liver oil is a great source of vitamin A because it also contains omega fatty acids and natural occurring vitamin D.

Dr Berg also recommends a protein enzyme to dissolve build up of mucus.

Here are some links to these products:

Caveat: if the root problem is bio-toxic mould such as in house damp, then taking bile salts might make the symptoms worse. In which case you have more information and can confirm a mould/bio-toxin issue. See

Allergies and Mould

Blocked sinuses could an environmental bio-toxin such as mould, or an allergy such as a reaction to animals, or a food allergy. Some things to consider:

  • cutting out all grains and dairy for a month
  • kimchi or lactobacillus sakei supplement to address bacteria imbalance (for the science behind lactobacillus sakei see this page). Note – after further research it seems likely that the specific source of this beneficial bacteria might be the garlic that’s in the kimchi. So fermented garlic (at between 14 and 21 days) is particularly recommended for this condition.
  • remove mould from the home environment

Electromagnetic Fields

Mould issues can be aggravated by electromagnetic fields which have been shown to cause mould to be more ‘aggressive’. For a deeper look at this topic see Do EMFs-increase-mould-toxicity?, but here’s a few suggestions:

  • switch off the house AC power to the sleeping area at night, or
  • take action to deactivate live wires in floor space and wall space in the sleeping area

To thin down sinus mucus (doesn’t cure root cause) I would take fenugreek, and I would try acupressure of the 2nd vertebrae.

And …
