Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has long purported the antiaging properties of certain herbs and spices.
Now modern medical science seems to back up many such claims and has even found a mechanism of action for the medicinal qualities of these herbs.
Believe it or not, these ancient herbs provide protection from a very modern phenomenon that is robbing millions of us of health and longevity – – exposure to EMFs!
EMF stands for electromagnetic radiation frequencies. The truth is they are naturally all around us from being emitted by the sun and the Earth’s own magnetic field.
However, EMFs are also given off by cell phone towers and all those wireless computers/laptops, wireless TV,’s and phone screens we expose ourselves to every day. And it is this unnatural, if you will, overexposure to EMFs from modern technology that is having a draining effect on our health and lifespans.
EMFs have mutagenic properties.
They can cause cellular damage, systemic inflammation, and an increase in free radicals, all of which can accelerate aging.
Researchers have identified these five herbs, common in TCM, that offer protection against EMF exposure.
- Reishi mushroom – The “king” of Traditional Chinese Medicine, reishi can boost immune function and help to protect the body from EMFs.
- Ginseng – This adaptogen is highly effective in resetting the body’s many systems. It’s potent in mitigating the influence of electromagnetic radiation, too.
- Turmeric – The spice common in curried foods is a powerful antioxidant that can boost your cellular resistance to EMF exposure.
- Green Tea – Also a great source of antioxidants, green tea can enhance your body’s immune function to ward off possible EMF damage.
- Vitamin C – A potent antioxidant found in a number of foods and herbs, making sure your vitamin C intake levels are high can prevent free radicals from squeezing into your cells.
In addition to adding these herbs, spices, and nutrients into your diet, in foods or supplement form, scientists say it is important to take regular breaks from being in front of screens to help reduce exposure to the cellular damaging properties of EMFs.
