Microwave Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) Shown to Cause Depression & Anxiety

Neuropsychiatric effects from microwave frequency electromagnetic fields have been studied since the 1970s, when two government reports found evidence of a wide variety of symptoms which were linked to occupational exposure to non-thermal levels of microwave EMFs. The observed prevalence of these combinations of neurological symptoms became widespread enough by the late ‘90s that the term “microwave sickness” or “radiofrequency sickness” was coined to summarize and label this increasingly common condition.

The brain, nervous system and mood related symptoms that are most commonly reported include depression, anxiety, restlessness, insomnia and sleep disturbances, fatigue, headaches, concentration and attention problems, memory loss, dizziness, irritability, nausea, skin burning and tingling, and EEG changes. These symptoms have been linked to exposure to microwave EMFs for several decades already, even back when radiofrequency radiation levels were a small fraction of what they are now as 5G is being rolled out, significantly increasing the RF density of our living environments with no prior safety testing.

Dozens of epidemiological studies over the last 50 years all collectively show that various non-thermal microwave EMF exposures produce diverse neuropsychiatric effects. These effects are linked to cell phone base stations, excessive cell phone usage, wireless smart meters, and more.

The main reason these studies have been disputed, or not taken as seriously as they should be, is because of the lack of an apparent mechanism for generating these symptoms. We now have studies which point to a primary mechanism of harm from pulsed microwave EMFs. The mechanism relates to the voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCCs) which occur in very high densities throughout our nervous system and have near universal roles in release of neurotransmitters and neuroendocrine hormones. Their unnatural hyper-activation from external electromagnetic fields causes a destructive chain reaction that includes excessive neurotransmitter release and the resulting oxidative/nitrosative stress.  

Voltage-Gated Calcium Channels – A Key Piece To EMF Harm

Our entire bodies run on their own form of natural electricity. These natural electric currents are controlled and regulated by various ions that hold and release electrical charge when appropriate to any given biological function. Knowing that, it’s no wonder we are sensitive to even the very weakest electromagnetic fields from our environment. If our bodies are electrochemical in nature, and respond to even the smallest endogenous electrical signal, of course we are also going to be affected by external electric and magnetic signals.

It has been discovered that a primary mechanism through which manmade electromagnetic fields (especially pulsed microwave frequency EMFs) affect our bodies is through the voltage-gated calcium channels that are found in the membranes of every cell in our body, especially in our brain and nervous system. Calcium ions are sitting at the ready in our cell membranes, waiting for any signal prompt from hormones, neurotransmitters and other messengers in our bodies. When prompted by natural endogenous means, they typically release a tiny amount of calcium into the cytosol (the inside of the cell), which then triggers chain reactions of enzymes and other messengers to initiate a wide variety of functions, depending on what the messenger substance signaled. Our bodies are incredibly complex and sensitive.

The structure of the manmade, artificial EMFs that are being utilized today has a disastrous effect on our voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCCs). The havoc wreaked is related to the pulsed nature of alternating currents and radio-frequency radiation, which massively overstimulate our VGCCs, triggering the release of a literal flood of calcium into the inside of our cells. This causes a biologically confusing and overstimulating flood of signals that create chain reactions throughout ultimately every one of our bodily systems. It also necessitates the replacement of the calcium ions that are supposed to hold the negatively charged phospholipids of the cell membrane together with their double positive charge, with other ionic elements that are not as suited for this task. This results in small holes in the phospholipid barrier of the cell that leak substances into and out of the cell into places where they shouldn’t be, causing a variety of potential health issues.

A chronic leakage in the cell membrane caused by the calcium channel flooding stimulated by the external EMFs also causes dysfunction in the transport systems of each cell, inhibiting the intake of nutrients and the expelling of waste, causing the cell to weaken and eventually die.

Studies have been published in the past decade showing that calcium channel blocker drugs actually block or greatly reduce the biological effects from EMFs, proving that EMF harm is closely related to the role and function of the VGCCs.  

How Can We Minimize VGCC Disruption & Recover Our Neurological Health?

Obviously, healthy people shouldn’t start taking calcium channel blocker drugs to block the effects of EMFs on the body, as these drugs come with the risk of significant side effects and should only be used by individuals with specific heart conditions.

The mineral magnesium is a natural calcium channel blocker, as we elaborate on in our article on the subject:

Importance of Magnesium in Mitigating Damage from EMFs

This article emphasizes the importance of excellent nutrition, and especially correcting chronic magnesium deficiency (which potentially 75-90% of people suffer from) to regulate our response to external EMFs and help us cope better.

The primary changes we hear from Blushield users after they have acclimated to their Blushield devices are improvements of a neuropsychiatric nature! This is likely not a coincidence, and is probably due to our highly sensitive electrochemical bodies picking up on the new dominant signal in our environment, which are Blushield’s complex, biologically coherent, nature-based multiple waveform algorithm on a scalar (longitudinal) carrier signal. Blushield’s signal predominates over the repetitive, oscillating pulsed EMFs in the environment for a few reasons:

1) The amplitude of the Blushield signal is stronger than the combined total of other EMFs in the environment (as long as the specific model used is strong enough for your individual exposure levels).

2) Blushield’s waveforms mimic natural patterns within a range of frequencies that occur in nature and that humans are known to respond well to, so it’s instantly familiar to our bodies (based on our genetic memory of what we have evolved with), and our cells actually prefer to entrain to these types of waveforms.

3) The waveforms are on a scalar / longitudinal carrier signal, instead of a transverse wave. Living organisms are considerably more responsive to scalar fields (as compared to transverse EM waves), since our bodies themselves naturally produce a type of bio-scalar. You can read more about scalar energy here.

Note that not everyone will feel the changes from Blushield at the cell level, but that doesn’t mean it’s not working. These are extremely intricate cell-level processes, and that’s why we perform live blood analysis and other testing to show you what’s actually occurring in the blood, whether or not you are sensitive enough to tangibly feel the effects. Also note that if you’re in a state of chronic illness that has you essentially frozen in a sympathetic (fight-or-flight) state, it could take considerably longer for you to acclimate to the Blushield frequency field and release the stress of trying to fight the pulsed, oscillating EMFs that we are used to fighting for many years or decades.  


We think these studies that have been done in the past decade on the mechanism of harm from EMFs are fascinating, and important to be aware of. The initial discovery was made by Dr. Martin Pall, a Professor of Biochemistry and Medical Sciences at Washington State University. If you want to read more about his discovery and subsequent research, this is a great one to start with:

We wanted to pass this information along to you because so often we hear from sensitive individuals who are having neurological symptoms that they feel certain are from EMF exposure. Hopefully this article was helpful for you in validating your symptoms, explaining their likely cause, and sharing a few powerful things you can do to alleviate your symptoms and live a better life!
