Not-So-Obvious Factors That Could Be Affecting Your Health

When we think about good health, we think of eating healthy foods, drinking enough water and exercising regularly. If these three boxes are ticked, we assume we are in the pink of health. No doubt good eating and exercising habits are extremely beneficial for us, but there are also a number of other, not-so-obvious factors that could be damaging our health, without us even knowing or realising it.

Let’s shed some light on them and learn how we can counteract their effect on our minds and bodies.

Radiation From Appliances

In the modern-age, we are constantly connected to electronic devices - they are in our homes, our offices, even when we are on-the-go. And as part of our modern lives, we unfortunately cannot let go of them easily. In that case, if we are at least aware of these potential dangers, we could attempt to limit their usage or at least use them in the safest way possible to minimize harm to our bodies.

Our mobile phones are practically glued to us from the minute we wake up to the minute we sleep. Even little children are glued to phone screens nowadays. Two ways we can minimise harmful radiation from our mobile phones is by keeping it as far away from our heads as possible, so talk with headphones if possible and don’t sleep with your phone under your pillow or on your bedside table.

The microwave oven also emits radiation so as convenient as it is, use it only when necessary. Heat food on the stove tops instead. And don’t stand directly in front of the microwave when on, especially if you are pregnant.

EMF And Geopathic Stress

What’s that, you ask? EMFs are fields of energy created by electrically charged objects. These include man-made sources such as mobile phones, laptops, microwave ovens, WiFi routers etc as well as natural sources such as the Earth's electromagnetic field.

An EMF Survey will help detect the Geopathic and EMF stress in and around your home and their potential effects on your body, so you can take appropriate action to negate or prevent them. For instance, you can at least make sure that the bedrooms are free from harmful radiation so as to aid the night time recovery of the body and ensure proper sleep.

Mental well-being

When we talk of good health, we always refer to physical health, but our mental well-being is just as important. In fact, if we are mentally not at peace or always stressed and burnt out, our physical health eventually takes a toll. Meditation, yoga, conscious living and a slower, more calmer pace of life helps in keeping our mental health in good condition.


We underestimate the importance of sleep and how it affects our mood, behaviour, energy levels and overall health. We tend to go to bed only when we are ‘tired’, but it is important to get adequate amount of sleep every night as it is the means through which our mind and body rests, restores and repairs itself, so that we can live a healthier life.
