Protect Homeopathic Remedies from Televisions, Microwaves, and Computer Monitors
by Melanie Grimes
(NaturalNews) Televisions and other electronic devices emit electromagnetic radiation (EMR). Because of the subtle energy of homeopathic remedies, it is possible for them to be damaged by exposure to EMR. Electromagnetic radiation is damaging to human cells and to all living organisms because it causes atoms to alter. The radiation causes a removal of electrons from the atoms and alters the DNA of the cells. It is important to know which types of electronic devices emit damaging rays, and how to protect the remedies from exposure.
Most televisions use a cathode ray tube CRT type of screen that has been shown to create EMR. Flat screen televisions use a different technology, and therefore do not emit as much EMR. Televisions are required by the FDA to emit less than .5 milliroentgens per hour, and the FDA asks that the manufacturers repeat testing to ensure this level is not exceeded.
Homeopathic remedies are very sensitive compounds. They are created by diluting substances until little if any of the original material is left. The resulting medication contains the energy imprint of the original substance.
Remedies have been shown to act even after 100 years, and many doctors use remedies passed down to them with great success. Because it is not possible to measure the amount of substance in a homeopathic remedy, it is not possible to know with confidence if the remedies are damaged or not, unless they are prescribed. If a properly prescribed remedy fails to act, it is common practice among homeopaths to try the same remedy from a different pharmacopeia, or a different batch, in order to ensure that the problem doesn't stem from an inactive remedy batch.
Other Areas of Concern
Computer monitors also emit EMRs and most of them still use CRT screens. Power supply lines emit 60 Hz and those are more damaging to health and to homeopathic remedies than a modern TV. The recommended distance to view a television is farther than fifteen inches. Even though there are few EMRs measurable in modern television sets, this limit of beyond two feet should still be observed.
What You Can Do to Protect Homeopathic Remedies from Irradiation
The best prevention is to store homeopathic remedies at least two feet away from television and other electronic devices, especially microwave ovens and computer monitors. Keep remedies in a dark, dry storage area as well. Remedies are best stored in yellow or blue glass bottles, not clear. Sunlight passing into the remedies can be as damaging as EMR.
When traveling with homeopathic remedies, pass the remedies to the guard for manual screening and do not put them through the security x-ray scanners. It is safer for the remedies to be shipped in luggage rather than in carry-on suitcases, for this reason. The lead bags that film is stored in for airport x-ray prevention may also be of use.
