Can you Avoid this Invisible Danger?

By Mila McManus, M.D.

Recently, several of my staff members and I participated in a five day educational summit about the health crisis that is emerging as a result of electropollution and the magnitude of the 5G implementation around the world. 

Electropollution, also known as electromagnetic radiation, or EMF, has increased exponentially over the years and includes these sources:

  • Wireless Devices – cell phones, iPads, laptops, baby monitors, cell towers, smart watches
  • High Frequency Voltage Transients (HFVT’s) – electrical appliances and equipment of every kind (e.g. microwaves and refrigerators), fluorescent light bulbs, AC/DC power mode converters, rectangular black boxes on power cords, televisions, computers, printer/copier/fax machines, dimmer switches, SMART Meters, and cordless phone base stations.

Magda Havas, PhD, explains that all of our neurological and chemical transactions in the body are electrically charged on every cell membrane. We are, in effect, electromagnetically sensitive beings, responsive (to a certain degree) to anything in the environment with a charge. Most of us use a lot of energy to maintain homeostasis but when we are no longer able, we begin to have symptoms.  Electromagnetic radiation causes significant oxidative stress and disables the mitochondria, the powerhouses in our cells.  Our bodies need and require extremely low frequencies (0.1 to 32000 Hertz, or HZ) to thrive.  These frequencies are recharged when we are in direct contact with nature, walking in the woods or on a beach.  They can also be restored and brought to homeostasis using PEMF therapies in these frequency ranges, which describes the ONDAMED energy therapy we have available at our facility.

There are several concerns with the dramatic increase in electromagnetic exposure. First of all, this radiation is a form of man-made energy, unnatural to the earth and living things.  Man has captured energy, and altered the natural wave pattern of energy into a pulsing pattern with an extraordinarily high frequency. Like processed food and man-made chemicals, this is an artificial form of the real thing.

Secondly, with the implementation of 5G, these frequencies will be brought much closer to our homes and work spaces. These incredibly powerful 600-700 megahertz frequencies, according to Trevor Marshall, MD, appear to produce about 100 times more radiation than exposure from 4G cell towers. Dr. Marshall believes that the chronic impact of the pulsing waves will lead to a host of issues, mainly autoimmune, chronic fatigue, and other conditions that are idiopathic in nature.  For some who are more sensitive, they will experience symptoms from these frequencies instantaneously, while others will develop chronic issues over 10 to 20 years. There continues to be a growing and significant body of published scientific and anecdotal evidence that supports a correlation between these higher levels of electromagnetic radiation and various negative biological health effects, including cancer, asthma, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, ADD/ADHD, autism, and a number of neurological disorders.

Despite the fact that government and corporate entities have been informed of these health concerns, they appear to be highly motivated to move forward.  Given that 1 out of every 2 Americans already has a chronic disease, we should all be concerned about our future. [1] 

Because we have become accustomed to the conveniences and benefits of technology, and also because we are exposed from so many sources, we may feel powerless; however, there are many things you can do to make a difference to protect and defend yourself and your family. Much like exercise, any effort is better than no effort at all.  Here is a list.  Pick one and start practicing it, and then swing back and tackle another.  Our health, and the health of our children, depends on a defensive strategy.

Here Are Ways to Protect Yourself and Your Family[3]

  • Consider regular treatment with healing energy waves that balance and strengthen your own cellular ability to cope with higher frequencies.  Our office offers this Energy Medicine therapy.
  • Put your phone in airplane mode when you are carrying it or sleeping near it.
  • Distance yourself from your technology whenever possible. Exposure drops exponentially with distance.
  • Avoid using your phone when the signal is weak, as this actually increases EMF exposure by orders of magnitude.
  • When using your cell phone, use the speaker phone and hold the phone away from you (at least 3 feet is ideal when feasible).
  • Consider a Faraday bag for your cell phone. faradaybag.com
  • Look into Swiss Shield fabric for walls, beds, and clothing as well as EMF blocking paint for walls.
  • Decrease your time on or near the cell phone as much as possible.
  • Explore the use of VoIP software phones that can be used while connected to the internet via a wired connection.
  • Connect your desktop/laptop to the internet via a wired Ethernet connection and keep it in airplane mode as much as possible.
  • Avoid using wireless keyboards, trackballs, mice, game systems, printers, and portable house phones, opting for wired versions.
  • If you must use Wi-Fi, shut if off when not in use, especially at night when sleeping. Ideally work toward hardwiring your house so you can eliminate Wi-Fi all together.  There are USB Ethernet adapters for notebooks that allow connection to the internet with a wired connection.
  • Shut off electricity to the bedroom at night. This reduces electrical fields from the wires in your walls unless there is an adjoining room next to it. In this case, a meter will help determine the severity of the electrical fields and if you need to shut off electricity in both rooms.
  • Instead of using alarm on phone, use a battery powered alarm clock, ideally one without any light. Talking clocks for the visually impaired work well.
  • Replace your microwave oven with a steam convection oven, which will heat your food quickly and far more safely.
  • Avoid “smart” appliances and thermostats that depend on wireless signaling. This includes “smart” televisions. Consider replacing the TV with a large computer monitor instead, as this will not emit Wi-Fi signals.
  • Refuse smart meters as long as you can or add a shield to an existing smart meter.
  • Consider moving your baby’s bed into your room instead of using a wireless baby monitor. Alternatively, used a hard-wired monitor.
  • Replace CFL and LED bulbs with incandescent bulbs. Ideally remove all fluorescent lights from the house. Fluorescent lighting emits unhealthy light and transfers a current to the body just being close to them.
  • Do not use light bulbs you can control from your cell phone as they emit radio frequency just like a Wi-Fi router.
  • There is a liquid supplement made with rosemary, propolis and coriander that allegedly protects the body from EMF. It is promoted by Dr. Klinghardt, a well known and respected functional MD. Visit https://kiscience.com/product/ray-wave/.
  • Consider blue-blockers to protect your eyes. See https://www.nourishmeorganics or com.au/products/mitohq-mito-shades.
  • If you feel you are EMF sensitive, Dr. Klinghardt recommends https://www.littletreegroup.com/ as a good resource for protection.

Going Forward

Nancy Mehlert, MS

Ready to leave the COVID 19 Pandemic behind you?  It seems like a lot of people are ready for the quarantined life to be over. 

I’ve been thinking about what happens to our nutrition at times like these, and I think it has been different, for different people. I know many who have stayed the course, gotten more exercise and smoothly sailed through, in terms of nutrition at least.  And others, who have found the stresses dragging them back to old habits, comfort food, and drinks.  We are all different.  We struggle in different ways.

It is common for major life changes to get in the way of our best laid nutritional plans.

May I encourage you to be kind to yourself? There is no use in beating yourself up or drowning in guilt.  These times have been, and continue to be, difficult. It is hard to find anyone who thinks this is an easy time.  The complexities of caring for the elderly, schooling children, staying employed, and all working under the same roof 24-7 – none of this is easy stuff, individually or collectively.  

But as we see some possible light at the end of this tunnel, now is a good time to take stock and organize your thoughts in a positive, GO FORWARD mind set.  It is a good time to figure out how to GO FORWARD in confidence and make some corrections to course where needed.  Here are some productive and healthy things to do in the next couple of weeks as we hopefully emerge from this quarantine:

  • If you feel like your nutritional wheels totally fell off the wagon, have you discovered something valuable from the experience? We learn from our mistakes. What’s yours?  What would you do differently next time as a key learning point?  Then, forgive yourself, and GO FORWARD.
  • What have you done well? Look hard. Find at least one thing.  There is something good to be discovered.  Give yourself credit for that one thing. GO FORWARD with that good thing.
  • Talk to friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers. Ask them how they have coped nutritionally during this strange time and learn from their successes and mistakes. Take a new idea, a new recipe, a new habit, and GO FORWARD with it tucked into your steps.
  • Start now to pull your nutritional boundaries back into place, one thing at a time. Start with just one thing and do it (or stop it).  Then choose the next thing.  GO FORWARD in positive and affirming ways that will help you transition smoothly into the next season of life.
  • Reach out if you need help with course correction. Perhaps a detoxification program would be in order, or a nutrition consultation to revitalize your menu plans with a few easy recipes.  Or maybe some ONDAMED sessions and/or IR Saunas to reinvigorate your energy pathways and detoxify.
  • Resolve to take one new good habit into the future with you. I’ve started to use Stasher® Bags for food storage and Swedish dishcloths (shop@threebluebirds.com) , both of which make me happier and less wasteful in the kitchen. Take a look at our revised and updated Highway to Health and Health Reset Protocol Cookbook where you will find helpful reminders and plenty of ideas for healthy eating. Let’s GO FORWARD TOGETHER!

“I feel better than I have in 7 years”

I feel better than I have in 7 years

Good Morning. When we first met, you asked me, “What are 3 things you want to change”? For me, I only wanted to change one thing, and by changing this one thing, # 2, #3, and anything else I wanted to change, would eventually fall into place. That #1 thing was to feel better inside this body. I didn’t put much stock in Ondamed, just like I didn’t put much stock into anything else people told me that, “well this works for 90% of all people”, for the past 6 years. Luckily, Ondamed put more stock into me than I did it. When I woke up this morning, I felt better than I have in probably the past 7 years. I didn’t wake up feeling like a truck ran me over, backed up, ran me over again and asked me to change the oil while I was down there. Putting things in perspective: I didn’t Mary Lou Retton off the mattress, but I was far from Robert DeNiro in the movie Awakenings. There isn’t really anything specific I can point out that changed, other than after the session, the headache that I walked in with was gone, and my dizzy symptoms have reduced a lot (knock on wood). That one session of Ondamed did more for me than doctors, tests and diets have done in the past 6 years. Thank you very much for the help, and have a good weekend.

Skinflammation

By Mila McManus MD and Nancy Mehlert, MS

skinflammation

The skin is the body’s largest organ. It helps to regulate temperature and serves as the first line of defense against infection. It is an organ with the capacity to both absorb and eliminate substances.

The skin is also an outward manifestation and communication of what is going on inside the body. Healthy skin is reflective of a healthy internal body and ideally it should be clear and glowing. Any skin condition, such as oily or dry skin, blemishes, discoloration, eczema, psoriasis, acne, hives, rashes, itchiness, and premature aging are all signs that there’s something internally in the body that’s out of balance. These are not normal and should not be written off as “aging” or “normal for me”. Suppressing your skin problem with topical antibiotics and steroids, for example, is a disservice to your body because the underlying causes have not been addressed. Also, remember that the skin is a detoxification pathway and the body is, in many cases, trying to eliminate something through the skin. Stopping that process topically may prevent the body from detoxifying successfully.

When skin issues lead us to searching for the internal issues, in almost every case, it leads us to internal inflammation. This can come from many sources and, for some individuals, it may be the result of several factors. The most common are:

• Nutrient deficiencies
• Diet high in processed foods
• Hormone Imbalances
• Poor gut health with pathogenic microbial overgrowth
• Toxicity from heavy metals and chemicals
• Food sensitivities and allergies
• Compromised immune function such as autoimmune disease
• Viral, bacterial or parasitic infestation

Addressing these internal issues, along with improving liver detoxification pathways and doing so every day, in the lifestyle choices that you make, can result in healing that becomes evident in the skin too. An integrated, holistic approach addressing each of these areas is the optimal way to achieve healing of “skinflammation”.
Important nutrients for healthy skin include Vitamin A, Zinc, Vitamin C, Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Biotin, Selenium, Silica, Niacin, Vitamin K2, Sulfur, Vitamin E and Pantothenic Acid. Each of these are essential for radiant skin health.

Because nutrition plays such a significant part of achieving and maintaining healthy skin, diet is one of the first items to address when healing skin problems. From this perspective, the most likely culprits that contribute to skin issues are sugar, dairy, gluten, corn and eggs. Anyone trying to identify sources of inflammation both inside and out would do well to abstain from these foods to see if improvement or healing is achieved. It is equally important to consider other possible food sensitivities through elimination or testing (e.g., IgE via skin and/or blood tests, IgG via bloodspot, ALCAT). Foods that support healthy skin and are anti-inflammatory in nature include avocados, wild salmon, bone broth and antioxidant-rich greens and other colorful vegetables and fruits. Click here for a real bone broth recipe or contact us for resources for buying quality, properly prepared bone broth.

It is a common misconception that skin care products are harmless and don’t penetrate the skin. In America, the FDA has only banned 11 ingredients in skin care products while Europe has banned over 1000 ingredients. The FDA leaves it up to skin care manufacturers to disclose and consider whether an ingredient is safe. What research clearly shows is that many of these ingredients are toxic, hormone-disrupting and/or are carcinogens. It is not safe to assume that a product is safe simply because it’s on the store shelf. You may find it helpful to use the Environmental Working Group’s “Skin Deep” guide for cosmetics (www.ewg.org) We carry one of the cleanest skin care lines (AnnMarie) available today in our office so be sure to come by and check it out.

Finally, supporting the liver and detoxification pathways is also critical for supporting an anti-inflammatory environment in the body and on our skin. There are many such protocols including supplemental and dietary detoxification as well as infrared sauna, salt therapy, and ONDAMED. Often the body is not effective at eliminating toxins and the body needs support to promote drainage so that detoxification can occur. Simple strategies such as lemon water, green juicing, proteolytic enzymes, deep breathing, and dry brushing can help to stimulate improved drainage and detoxification.

“Amazingly…the pain is gone!”

Amazingly…the pain is gone!

From G.M.

In 1999 I was diagnosed with cancer.  I went to MD Anderson for treatment and I was in a study.  I received 33% more chemo treatments and there were many side effects that have lasted for more than 17 years, one of which was neuropathy in my feet and toes.  The numbness and tingling was annoying, but two years ago the numbness and tingling turned into pain and burning in my toes, in particular my right big toe.  I couldn’t let the sheets touch my feet and it would often wake me up and I would have to massage my toes before I could go back to sleep.   Dr. McManus suggested I try ONDAMED.  Amazingly, after only 6 sessions, the pain is gone!   That was 6 months ago.  I have not thought about it since!

Energy Medicine

energy medi

by Mila McManus MD

We use energy medicine every day in main stream as well as alternative medicine. If you’ve ever had an x-ray, mammogram, MRI, CT scan, or ultrasound, then you’ve experienced the wonders of energy medicine. Besides using energy for diagnostics, we use energy for therapies, such as with ultrasounds and lasers. If you’ve ever had acupuncture, you’ve experienced energy medicine. When you understand that our bodies, the universe, and everything in it are made up of energy and molecules, you can begin to understand that energy medicine is not voodoo.

What most people experience in modern medicine is chemistry, e.g. pharmaceutical drugs, when it comes to treating their ailments. I’ve been a physician for many years and my main focus has been using chemistry (hormones, vitamins, dietary interventions, and when necessary, pharmaceuticals) to treat and detoxify my patients. Well the time has come for The Woodlands Institute to branch out and exploit the powers of the universe and the body’s innate ability to heal itself. We are now incorporating energy medicine to facilitate healing and I’ve seen some pretty amazing things since we began using the PEMF device in January 2016. There are many PEMF devices out there and they are not all created equal. Our technology is top notch and my only regret is not having this device years ago!

When you hear the term “EMF”, you may be thinking of dangerous scattered EMF related to cell phones, laptops, wi-fi, and baby monitors (yes, baby monitors are the worst offenders!). PEMF devices use focused, therapeutic low doses that actually jump start the body’s healing process. PEMF also stimulates cellular detoxification. Imagine a bottle neck traffic jam on the highway due to construction on the road. Four lanes merge into one and it’s painfully slow to get from Point A to Point B. Now imagine the electrical highways throughout your body that are required for communication for your body to have any action (for instance, for you to raise your arm within a millisecond of wanting to raise your arm, your brain must send an electrical signal to your arm in order to contract the right muscles that allow you to raise it). Well, due to injuries, infections, toxins, and inflammation, our electrical highways can get traffic jammed. An injured joint, for example, requires not just blood supply to rush in, but also requires energy to get to that area to provide the correct signals for healing and function. PEMF therapies unjam that traffic to allow normal speeds of communication to allow the body to heal itself, whatever ails it. A great analogy I read about distinguishing the speed of chemical reactions (e.g. pharmaceutical drugs) vs energetic reactions is understanding the difference in how long it would take to walk across the country vs fly across the country. I’ve seen patients’ pain disappear immediately after a session before they’ve even left the office.   Not everyone responds this quickly though. What’s also pretty unique about the PEMF device that we use in our office is that it incorporates biofeedback which directs us not only to the specific frequencies with which someone should be treated at that particular time, but also helps us to locate the areas in the body that have the disturbance. And you might be surprised to know that the area where you may have pain, for example, may not be the area at which the PEMF needs to be directed.

Important benefits to note regarding the use of PEMF include:

  • Increases oxygenation
  • Improves ATP production (the energy source for our cells)
  • Enhances circulation
  • Speeds healing
  • Stimulates detoxification
  • Reduces pain
  • Reduces swelling
  • Reduces inflammation
  • No known side effects
  • Non-invasive
  • Non-painful
  • Non-pharmaceutical
  • Antioxidant properties
  • 10,000+ scientific papers and 2000+ double blinded studies to back up its claims

It’s important to understand that we cannot say that PEMF therapy “diagnoses, treats, or cures any disease”. It’s facilitating your body’s ability to heal itself. Also, the only contraindication to using PEMF therapy is pregnancy.

The treatments I received over the course of just 2 weeks has changed my life…

The treatments I received over the course of just 2 weeks has changed my life...

Dr. McManus,

I’m certain when you considered purchasing the PEMF device that you were certain it could help your patients with various conditions, but were you prepared for not just helping but changing lives?  The treatments I received over the course of just 2 weeks has changed my life from one of constant pain and sleepless nights to 98% pain free and sleeping soundly!  I have had tendonitis in my left elbow and numbness in two of my fingers with 70% nerve conduction loss for over a year.    I am a medical professional, so I have tried months of NSAIDS, 30 days of continuous steroids and 3 steroid injections to try to relieve the pain to no avail. I finally had surgery in July and it did not work.  I had another surgery this past December, but it left my left elbow with hyper-sensitivity due to the relocation of the nerve.  I could not touch the inside of my left elbow, nor even have the sheets rub against it at night because it would cause severe pain.  I decided to try your PEMF therapy but was completely skeptical that such a device would do ANYTHING, but what was there to lose.  Well, to my amazement, after the first treatment, I could actually touch the area around my scar.  I couldn’t believe the machine had worked.  Now, after 2 weeks of treatment, I can not only touch the skin around the incision, but I can touch the incision and rub the scar to release adhesions.  I can wear my long sleeves without any pain.  Better yet, I can sleep!!  I want to thank you for thinking outside the box and doing your research to stay on top of what is out there to better the lives of your patients.  You and your staff have made such a difference in the quality of my life.  I will forever be grateful because I had just made up my mind I would live in discomfort forever and then you introduced me to ONDAMED.  I am recommending this treatment to all my friends who have a variety of issues, not just pain.  Additionally, on more than one occasion, the machine indicated I was having issues elsewhere before I ever mentioned anything to you that I was in fact having issues in that particular area.  This treatment works and it works well!  Again, thank you for staying vigilant.
