About four months after being diagnosed with stage 3 colorectal cancer, Fred Evrard was told by his smiling doctor: “Mr. Evrard, you are cancer free.” A lot had happened in just four months.
On Sept. 10, 2020, Fred Evrard, aged 48, experienced a devastating blow in his life—he was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer, and the tumor in his body reached 10 centimeters in length.
The news came as a real surprise to Evrard, a strong athletic martial arts instructor.
Evrard has been practicing martial arts since he was a child. Over the past few decades, he has been active in various fitness activities such as boxing, parkour, tai chi, qigong, and meditation, in addition to teaching martial arts classes. His body was in prime shape when he was diagnosed, weighing 70 kg (154 lbs) with only nine percent body fat.
His lifestyle and diet were also extremely healthy in the eyes of ordinary people. Evrard has been a vegetarian for many years—he only eats natural and organic food and never consumes junk food. In addition, he rotates various diet plans all year round, such as ketogenic diet, intermittent fasting, paleo diet, etc. He does not smoke or drink and lives a disciplined life. He goes to bed between nine and ten at night and wakes up between five and six in the morning.
However, Evrard inherited the colon cancer gene, and both his father and grandfather died of colon cancer. He once thought that his lifestyle was so healthy that he could fight against the influence of unfavorable genetics.
Nevertheless, it was not all for nothing. Evrard’s healthy lifestyle and eating habits have indeed supported his body. In his book “How My Immune System Beat Cancer,” he wrote, “doctors told me that without my clean and organic diet of the past 20 years and my strong athletic body, I would probably have been dead already. My lifestyle stopped the cancer from spreading.”
Evrard believes that “stress was probably the trigger” for the cancer outbreak despite having an extremely healthy lifestyle and diet. Evrard traveled all year round to teach martial arts and attend events around the world and the process of obtaining a green card in the U.S. is long, difficult, and expensive. Also, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all of his international martial arts schools had to cease operation, and various other of his businesses were also suspended, resulting in a sudden loss of income.
With so much weighing on his shoulders, his body eventually collapsed.
Evrard was overwhelmed by the fact that his colorectal cancer had reached stage 3. He said he was “frozen” and lay dead in bed for three days without eating or drinking. At the same time, his pain was “multiplied a hundredfold” by the tumor that was oppressing the nerve and the tremendous psychological pressure brought about by the diagnosis. He said that on a scale of zero to 10, the constant pain he experienced was at 9.9.
Three days later, Evrard, who was born a fighter, chose to get back on his feet, and set three beliefs for himself:
He eagerly searched and read everything he could find about cancer, natural treatments, fasting, and various diets and found that there are numerous cases of successful reversal and treatment of cancer through fasting.
After reading the materials, Evrard began to discover and agree with the theory that cancer is a metabolic disease and decided to treat his cancer with fasting. The theory suggests that when mitochondria in the cells are damaged and switch to an anaerobic metabolic mode it eventually leads to cancer. In other words, carcinogenesis is the result of damaged mitochondria, not the cause of cancer. Cancer cells do not need to break down oxygen for respiration—they survive and grow uncontrollably by anaerobically breaking down glucose and glutamine (an amino acid). Correspondingly, fasting can cut off the food of cancer cells, and they will starve to death without glucose and glutamine.
In addition, Evrard learned that the body will start a cleansing and autophagy process during fasting, which can maximize the removal of toxic and harmful substances from the body.
In an exclusive interview with The Epoch Times, Evrard said that when he learned that cancer is a metabolic disease, he also realized that it is a disease mainly caused by lifestyle and toxins. Therefore, his first thought was to “reduce toxins in the body and try to remove them.”
However, the more he looked into it, the more he realized that “there is a huge gap between scientific and biological research and the field of medicine.”
When he consulted with his oncologists about the possibility of using fasting and the ketogenic diet to treat cancer, the doctors were either unconvinced or unwilling to discuss them. Instead, they told him that he needed immediate treatment by conventional means: 24 sessions of chemotherapy treatment, followed by several months of radiation therapy, and the final step of surgery. The end of his colon would be removed along with his anus, and he would not be able to control his bowel movements and would have a bag hanging outside his body for the rest of his life. Evrard did not want to accept such treatment.
The decision to fight cancer with fasting put Evrard under tremendous pressure because most cancer patients tend to accept the traditional cancer treatment methods provided by the hospital. His emotions often fluctuated during this process, but he stuck to his decision.
So, Evrard embarked on a 21-day fast, during which he drank only plain water and some wheatgrass juice once a week. His strong desire to survive kept him going.
A miracle was shown on the MRI image after 21 days of fasting—the length of the tumor on his colon shrank from 10 cm to 6 cm, and its diameter also shrank significantly. That’s when Evrard knew he was “on the right path.”
After the fast, he adopted a ketogenic diet, or more precisely, a carnivore diet. This was because he couldn’t eat anything with fiber due to severe intestinal inflammation. In addition, any food with processed ingredients also caused pain in his body—he couldn’t even eat chicken or pork. He found that the only food he could eat without feeling miserable was 100 percent grass-fed beef. Rib-eye steak, in particular, had the perfect balance of protein and fat for him.
During that period, he adopted intermittent fasting and ate only one meal a day. Just like that, he ate rib-eye steaks for months on end. Recognizing the nutritional benefits of vegetables, he later added cold-pressed vegetable juices that had been stripped of fiber to his diet.
The pain caused by the cancer tumor continued to be unbearable for Evrard, and none of the pain relief methods worked. It was so painful that he curled up on the ground and cried, even hitting his head against the wall. In the end, Evrard decided to follow his doctor’s advice and undergo a six-session chemotherapy regimen.
Evrard had read some research and data on how fasting could ease chemotherapy. Therefore, he decided to fast the day before and after each chemotherapy session, and three days during the session, that is, a total of five days. The results were excellent, and he experienced minimal chemotherapy side effects such as nausea and fatigue.
During the second chemotherapy session, Evrard did not fast completely. He tried to eat some food the day before chemotherapy, and he fell ill immediately during the session. He was so ill that he vomited repeatedly and even developed a bowel obstruction. He said in his book that “he was sick like a dog.”
Evrard then fasted again for his third chemotherapy session. This time, he completed the session without experiencing any side effects: no hair loss, nausea, vomiting, headache, or dizziness. The immune indicators in his blood were also normal, which surprised the nurses.
Studies found that intermittent fasting can be helpful for people who are undergoing chemotherapy treatment.
After his three chemo sessions, he continued to implement the ketogenic diet, and gradually added physical training, such as tai chi, boxing, and high-intensity interval training(HIIT), in December of the same year.
During the holiday week of Christmas and New Year in 2020, Evrard’s mother visited and his body no longer felt bad, so he resumed his normal diet for a week, eating all kinds of desserts and delicious food.
Beginning again on Jan. 2, he embarked on a second round of fasting as he was worried about his upcoming MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) examination. However, this time he did not fast for 21 consecutive days like in the first round. Instead, he completed the second round of fasting with a five-day fast and a two-day ketogenic diet on weekends. Furthermore, his weekend ketogenic diet consisted of only one meal.
On Jan. 10, 2021, he underwent another MRI and blood test, leading to back the opening of this article—the doctor announced that he was officially cancer-free, and the cancer cells in his body disappeared.
In addition to starving cancer cells to death with fasting and a ketogenic diet, Evrard, as a martial arts practitioner who understands the essence of fighting, adopted multiple approaches at the same time to fight cancer. Apart from these anti-cancer approaches, it was his strong willpower and positive beliefs that kept him going.
As Evrard regained his strength, he began exercising to boost his immunity against cancer. For the first two months after his diagnosis, he was too weak to perform any exercise. Two months later, he began to practice tai chi for 10 minutes a day to slowly recover his strength. He also pointed out in his book that tai chi as a fitness exercise is very suitable for cancer patients due to its simple and slow movements. Since then, he got back to high-intensity training, such as boxing and HIIT. On top of that, he insisted on exercising on an empty stomach to maximize the effectiveness of the body’s cleansing and autophagy mode.
Evrard values the benefits of meditation for the mind and body and read a lot of sources pointing to the positive effect of meditation on fighting cancer. He stresses that meditation has no risks or side effects, and has helped him boost his energy, and reduce stress and fear—factors that often hasten death in cancer patients. Meditation has many other benefits, such as relieving chronic pain, improving sleep quality, reducing fatigue, and improving cognitive function.
Evrard also jumped on a mini-trampoline to help the lymphatic system flush out toxins from the body. Unlike the heart, which pumps blood around the body, the lymphatic system relies entirely on the movement of muscles and joints to complete circulation. Jumping on the trampoline can help the lymph flow back to the lymph nodes, thereby successfully completing the filtration and detoxification, and boosting the body’s immunity. Trampoline exercise brings ample oxygen to the body, thus changing the hypoxic environment preferred by cancer cells. At the same time, trampoline exercise can also increase the number and activity of white blood cells in the blood, which can help eliminate cancer cells.
In addition, Evrard also used therapeutic hypothermia to mobilize the body’s immune function to fight cancer. He exposes his body to low temperatures for a short period of time by taking cold water baths and waterfall baths, meditating in the snow, walking his dog wearing minimal clothes in cold weather, etc. He has also read in the literature reviews that therapeutic hypothermia can help cancer patients reduce inflammation in the body.
In addition to these physical activities and practices, Evrard is also focused on healing his mind. He sees a psychologist regularly and keeps strengthening his positive belief. In his daily meditation, he uses the prayer: “I am thankful for my full and final healing. I am healed and healthy.” “Faith is an essential part of my journey,” he wrote in his book. He also strives to practice the law of attraction in his spiritual journey. The law of attraction believes that positive or negative thoughts can lead to positive or negative experiences in one’s life.
Last but not least, there is also love from relatives and friends that supported Evrard along the way. He said that his wife, mother, close friends, and even his dog have brought him endless warmth and comfort, and they are the most important support in his healing process.
Evrard shared his typical daily schedule and various recipes he used while fighting cancer in his book “How My Immune System Beat Cancer.” Here are a few:
About 20 minutes of cold exposure training.
See psychologist once a week.
Full body massage every two weeks.
Start intermittent fasting until 14:00 the next day.
As Evrard’s family physician, Dr. Charles Gibert was actively involved in his treatment. Having witnessed the whole story, he wrote the foreword to “How My Immune System Beat Cancer.”
“We live in a time of ‘one problem, one pill’ and Fred’s adventure is an incredible testimony that things could be different. We need to truly understand what cancer is telling us. Those people begin to dream that what has been tied up in a tumor can be untied with a natural cure. And they are right! One of those people is my friend, Fred Evrard, and he did it.”
Really horrifying events and stories coming out of the Northern Territory. As the Australian government funnels hundreds of millions in cash and assets to the Ukraine, our own country is being ripped apart from within as child rapists walk the streets.
What an absolute national disgrace “Rachel Hale has spoken out about confronting incidents of child abuse she witnessed first-hand while working in the public health system in Alice Springs as the territory and federal government grapple with how to handle a crime wave plaguing the town.”
Law of One
42.12 Questioner: In the last session you said, “the self, if conscious to a great enough extent of the workings of the catalyst of fasting, and the techniques of programming, may through concentration of the will and the faculty of faith alone cause reprogramming without the analogy of fasting, diet, or other analogous body complex disciplines.” What are the techniques of programming which the higher self uses to ensure that the desired lessons are learned or attempted by the third-density self in our third-density incarnational laboratory?
Ra: I am Ra. There is but one technique for this growing or nurturing of will and faith, and that is the focusing of the attention. The attention span of those you call children is considered short. The spiritual attention span of most of your peoples is that of the child. Thus it is a matter of wishing to become able to collect one’s attention and hold it upon the desired programming.
This, when continued, strengthens the will. The entire activity can only occur when there exists faith that an outcome of this discipline is possible.
The UK Home Office has turned a blind eye to the disappearance of dozens of unaccompanied migrant children from a Sussex hotel it operates as a children’s home, according to an investigation by The Observer published on Saturday.
Of the 600 unaccompanied minors who have passed through the Home Office-run premises in Brighton over the last 18 months, some 136 have been reported missing, and 79 of those are still unaccounted for, the news outlet’s investigation found. A whistleblower with Home Office security contractor Mitie told the paper that the alleged kidnappings are bold, frequent, and not limited to the Brighton facility.
“Children are literally being picked up from outside the building, disappearing and not being found,” the security guard reportedly said, suggesting “traffickers” are responsible. A similar facility in Hythe, Kent allegedly lost 10% of its young charges every week.
Police had been warning the Home Office for over a year that criminal networks would likely target the young asylum seekers being put up in the hotel, and the location was known to be problematic – a “hotspot of exploitation,” in the words of another source from child protection services – due to the operation of so-called ‘county lines’ gangs in the area.
The security guard even admitted to have witnessed the kidnappings by the gangs firsthand, but claimed feeling helpless to do anything about it. “Albanian and Eritrean gangs pick them up in their BMWs and Audis and then they just vanish,” the source said.
In May, two men were actually caught with three children – who were returned to the Home Office. In most cases, however, police investigations were merely “cursory,” and children were almost never returned, according to the Mitie worker.
While the whistleblowers have repeatedly warned the Home Office about the situation, “nothing much has changed,” The Observer reported. A Brighton councillor allegedly described the lack of government action as child neglect on an “industrial scale.”
Asked what was being done to protect unaccompanied migrant children amid this kidnapping spree, the Home Office suggested it was a police problem, while the police referred questions to the Home Office. Even after it was revealed in October that 220 child asylum seekers had gone missing from facilities funded by the agency, which housed them in hotels alongside adults whose backgrounds had not been checked, no policy changes appear to have been made – even though officials have admitted in internal communications that they are effectively running unregistered and therefore illegal children’s homes.
Jim Caviezel talks about the raising small childrens for adrenaline up to the point before killing them. Adrenochrome is harvested from Children. You may think that this does not affect you, but you are wrong. This affects all of us. These poor children are tortured mercilessly for extended periods of time and then slaughtered inhumanely and sold for their blood and body parts. These are human beings. Precious children
Out Of Shadows
A spiritually inclined person realizes our physical and metaphysical world is inseparable. They recognize their weakness and strengths, showing compassion, appreciation and are here to be of service to others. They love our Creator with all their heart and have connected to Divine Energy, realizing there is a Divine spark of that Divine energy within each of us.
They have learned to there is a Divine energy field around each of us. The late Dr. Valerie V. Hunt, scientist, author, lecturer and Professor Emeritus of Physiological Science at the University of Californian, confirmed electromagnetic energy is the most plentiful constant energy of our universe. It is a part of all structures living and dead, including the atmosphere. We create electromagnetic energies in the atoms of our living cells, which we enhance by the reaction with the atmospheric energy field. We know this expanded energy field as the human aura. Without this biofield life would not exist and there would be only an inner biochemical mix. Dr. Hunt was involved in research that is uncovering the various dimensions involved in the bioenergetic transactions between humans and the environment as they relate to human behaviors, emotions, health, illness, and disease, as well as scientifically quantifying the human aura and the levels of consciousness it contains.
We are all spiritually inclined, some more than others. With the work of Dr. Hunt and others, we have a better understanding our our metaphysical world. The veil is slowly being lifted around the world, revealing and the truth, and creating catalyst so we may grow spiritually. When we learn how to tap into the Divine Energy field, we will be a able to affect our behaviors. emotions, illnesses and disease.

This letter is to express my support of the above referenced case. I am concerned that the United States has experienced a national security breach and a violation of every citizens’ greatest power in a Republic: voting. I ask that you stand against the interference of foreign and domestic enemies and uphold the supreme law of the land by granting this petition. You truly are in a position that represents a court system greater than the world has ever seen. I, along with many others, seem to be witnessing our nation captured and I am left to wonder if it might be by some of these very respondents. I pray for the right and just outcome and I am
grateful for your time and consideration.
Amazing development in Brazil as firefights happened in the fravelas where Lula’s criminals were hiding. An open letter was written by the highest ranking military officers demanding the High Command to take action in light of the overwhelming evidence of election theft.
Brazil is setting an example for the world to see how governments should be run. Power is coming from the people demanding these public servants to take action to restore order and remove the criminals.
Jacinda Ardern’s government are trying to take this woman’s baby because she doesn’t want jabbed blood pumped into him during heart surgery.
Hundreds of matched blood types of non jabbed people have come forward, but the government are still pushing against the family’s wishes!
Our exposure to man-made radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (EMF) has increased dramatically in recent decades. From mobile phones and laptops to Wi-Fi access points, routers, smart meters, antennas on cell towers, Bluetooth devices, and cordless phones, it’s becoming nearly impossible to avoid man-made EMFs.
While government and industry assure us that near-constant exposure to these sources of radiation is safe, the current established standards of exposure to EMFs are based largely on the thermal effects. However, the most damaging component is likely nonthermal, direct tissue penetration.
The potential long-term health effects of low-dose exposure to EMFs were scarcely investigated prior to the mass introduction of these technologies. A 2009 study published in Pathophysiology reported that long-term exposure to EMFs “increase the risk of both Alzheimer’s disease and breast cancer.”
EMFs may also affect fertility in both men and women. A study published in the Central European Journal of Urology in 2014 tested sperm motility and DNA fragmentation in sperm samples from healthy men following exposure to a cell phone in “talk mode” for five hours. Compared with the control group, mobile phone radiation exposure decreased sperm motility and increased DNA fragmentation levels.
In 2017, a prospective cohort study of 913 pregnant women published in Scientific Reports concluded that women who were exposed to higher amounts of EMF radiation had 2.72 times the risk of miscarriage compared to women with lower EMF exposure.
“This study provides fresh evidence, directly from a human population, that MF [magnetic field] non-ionizing radiation could have adverse biological impacts on human health,” the authors wrote.
For instance, based on the increased risk for brain cancer associated with wireless phone use, the International Agency for Research on Cancer classified radio electromagnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic to humans.
The European Commission Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks concurred that low-frequency EMFs are “possibly carcinogenic” based on evidence of increased incidence of childhood leukemia and Alzheimer’s disease in adults.
EMF exposure can also lead to electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS), which is a phenomenon characterized by the appearance of symptoms after exposure to EMFs.
Symptoms range from both acute to chronic inflammatory processes across multiple organ systems, but mainly appear in the skin or nervous system. For instance, fatigue, dizziness, headaches, problems with concentrating or memory, depression, burning sensation of the skin, and sleep disturbances are common symptoms among the EHS population.
Given the current research, it’s plausible that reducing man-made EMF exposure can improve health and wellness, especially in sensitive populations. Various strategies for EMF mitigation are available, such as shielding and distancing. However, one often overlooked strategy involves herbs and spices.
Due to the numerous antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds contained in herbs and spices, they can help the body heal from the damage caused by man-made EMF exposure. By learning how to harness the healing power of herbs, we can become more resilient in the face of ever-growing EMF exposure.
Always consult your health care provider before consuming herbs or supplements or making any changes to your medications or medical protocols.
Here’s a list of herbs and spices that have been studied for their potential EMF-protecting ability.
Turmeric has been used for thousands of years in traditional medicine, especially for treating inflammatory conditions. A 2021 review published in Biofactors analyzed previous studies and confirmed that turmeric contains anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and immunomodulatory effects and can be used for treating “inflammatory, oxidative, and immune dysregulation disorders.”
Turmeric is also a powerful anti-radiation herb partly due to its ability to reduce inflammation. Curcumin, a compound found in turmeric, likely plays a primary role in the ability of turmeric to inhibit inflammation and prevent damage triggered by EMF exposure.
EMF exposure can increase the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines, such as tumor necrosis factor-alpha, interleukin-6, and interleukin-1beta. Those pro-inflammatory cytokines can contribute to the formation of neurological conditions and diseases. According to a study published in the Journal of Neuroinflammation, curcumin can inhibit the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines following exposure to EMF radiation.
A study published in the Journal of Chemical Neuroanatomy in 2022 reported that EMFs emitted by mobile phones for one hour per day for 28 days significantly decreased the total number of neurons in the hippocampus of rats compared with the control group. The neuronal structure was also negatively altered. However, curcumin provided “significant protection” against EMF-mediated damage, according to the authors.
These studies suggest that the consumption of turmeric might reduce the negative effects of man-made EMF radiation on the body.
Turmeric can be consumed through food and is often found in Indian dishes such as curry, although it’s great in soups, stews, and hundreds of other dishes. Turmeric root can be added to meals such as salads. Turmeric powder can be added to smoothies and sauces and sprinkled on top of vegetables. Turmeric supplements are also widely available.
CAUTION: Turmeric supplements shouldn’t be consumed during pregnancy. Turmeric is a blood thinner and may interfere with blood thinning medications. Individuals with iron deficiency, diabetes, gallbladder issues, blood clotting issues, or endometriosis should ask their health care practitioner prior to consuming turmeric.
Gingko biloba comes from the ginkgo tree, which is thought to be one of the oldest living tree species. Gingko biloba was used in ancient Chinese medicine to help unblock stuck energy in vital organs and to stimulate blood flow throughout the body.
Today, ginkgo is used to soothe headaches, assist with breathing issues, fight depression and anxiety, protect against free radicals, assist with diabetes, and protect the brain from the aging process due to its rich antioxidant properties.
Ginkgo may also protect against EMF radiation. In one study published in the International Journal of Clinical Chemistry, rats were exposed to EMFs from a mobile phone for one hour each day for seven days. EMF exposure resulted in oxidative damage to the brains of rats in the control group.
However, rats given ginkgo biloba prior to cell phone exposure didn’t suffer from oxidative stress. The authors concluded that ginkgo biloba “prevented” the brain tissue from being damaged by EMF exposure.
Ginkgo biloba can be consumed as a tea, tincture, leaf extract, roasted seeds, or in tablet form.
CAUTION: Ginkgo biloba has antiplatelet activity and may potentiate other anticoagulants. Consult with a health care provider prior to consumption. Fresh ginkgo biloba seeds in raw form may be poisonous and can be considered unsafe to eat. Women who are pregnant or nursing should consult with their health care provider before consuming ginkgo.
Ginseng is an adaptogen that has been utilized in Chinese medicine for its wide spectrum of medicinal effects, including anti-aging and antimutagenic activities.
Recently, studies have verified ginseng’s numerous health benefits, including anti-cancer and neuroprotective properties, as well as pharmacological abilities in the treatment of diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Ginseng may also protect against radiation exposure. A study published in 2014 demonstrated that when rats were exposed to cell phone radiation for four hours per day for 12 days, liver cells were damaged and oxidative injury was observed. However, liver cells weren’t damaged in rats that were administered ginseng.
A study published in BioMed Research International reported a neuroprotective effect of ginseng in the hippocampus of mice following EMF exposure. After one month of exposure to EMFs, brain damage was observed in the control group with a loss of calcium balance in the cells. However, mice administered ginseng were protected against brain impairment and retained calcium balance in the cells of the hippocampus.
A review study published in Mutagenesis reported that ginseng also provides protection against gamma radiation-induced DNA damage. The authors theorized that ginseng’s radioprotective potential may be due to its antioxidative capability to scavenge free radicals, as well as its immunomodulating capabilities.
Ginseng can be consumed as a tea, tincture, extract, or in a supplement form often in capsules.
CATION: Ginseng may interact with certain prescription medications. Both Asian and American ginseng may interact with blood-thinning medications. Asian ginseng may also interact with calcium channel blockers and other medications used for high blood pressure as well as statins, antidepressants, and chemotherapy. Women who are pregnant or nursing should consult with their health care provider before consuming ginseng.
Green tea has been used for treating numerous ailments in traditional Asian medicine. It’s possibly best known for its abundance of antioxidants.
Studies have confirmed numerous health benefits of green tea including prevention of cancer and cardiovascular disease, as well as anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antiarthritic, antibacterial, and antiviral effects.
Green tea may protect against EMF exposure as well.
A 2011 study published in Neurotoxicity Research reported that green tea can protect neurons in the brain against cell phone radiation. Cell phone exposure for 24 hours resulted in neuronal cell death in cultured rat cells. Green tea, however, prevented cell death.
“Our results suggested a neuroprotective effect of green tea polyphenols against the mobile phone irradiation-induced injury on the cultured rat cortical neurons,” the authors wrote.
A second study published in 2016 in Environmental Toxicology and Pharmacology was based on a randomized controlled trial. It reported a protective effect of green tea on workers exposed to low-frequency electromagnetic fields of high-voltage power lines. Oxidative damage to DNA was measured in workers exposed to the EMFs from high-voltage power lines. Following 12 months of green tea polyphenol supplementation (GTPS), the oxidative damage was diminished.
“We found a negative impact of high-voltage power lines on the health of workers,” the authors wrote. “Long-term GTPS could be an efficient protection against the health issues induced by high-voltage power lines.”
Green tea can be consumed as a tea, extract, or in supplemental form such as capsules.
CAUTION: Individuals with any of the following conditions should speak with their health care provider before consuming green tea: anemia, anxiety disorder, a blood-clotting disorder, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, glaucoma, irritable bowel syndrome, liver disease, or osteoporosis. Women who are pregnant or nursing should consult with their health care provider before consuming green tea.
A herb used by traditional healers for the treatment of cancer, polygonum aviculare contains phenolics and flavonoids that impart antioxidant and antitumor properties. Consequently, it’s studied for its potential to treat diseases associated with aging.
Polygonum aviculare, more popularly known as common knotgrass, may also protect against damage from EMF exposure.
Exposure to radiofrequency EMFs, such as that produced by laptops and cell phones, has reportedly led to reduced sperm motility and development. A study published in 2011 reported a protective effect of Polygonum aviculare following EMF exposure in mice.
Following two months of EMF exposure, sperm motility was reduced and morphology was impaired. However, in mice supplemented with the herbal extract, sperm motility and development were preserved.
The young leaves of Polygonum aviculare can be consumed raw or cooked, as well as dried and consumed in tea. The seeds can also be consumed either whole or dried and ground into a powder to be used in baking. Supplemental forms, such as capsules, are also available.
Caution: An individual who’s consuming prescription medications or is pregnant or nursing should consult with their health care provider before consuming Polygonum aviculare.
The use of rosemary dates back to at least 500 B.C. It was traditionally used for relief from diverse conditions ranging from mental decline to epilepsy, pain, and infertility.
Today, rosemary is studied for its potential to alleviate inflammatory conditions and neurological deficits. It may also protect the body from potential damage caused by EMF exposure.
Exposure to EMFs decreased levels of male hormones in rats, including testosterone, according to a study published in Environmental Science and Pollution Research in 2020. However, male hormone levels in rats supplemented with rosemary leaf extract were improved. In addition, rosemary “inhibited the destructive effect of electromagnetic fields on testicular tissue,” according to the authors.
In 2021, another study published in the Environmental Science and Pollution Research concluded that rosemary leaf extract “offered substantial protection” against EMF-induced liver damage in rats.
Rosemary can be consumed in food in either fresh or dried form, as well as an extract.
CAUTION: Individuals with the following conditions should speak with their health care provider before consuming rosemary: gastroenteritis, endometriosis, constipation, epilepsy, neurodegenerative disease, and insomnia. Women who are pregnant or nursing should consult with their health care provider before consuming rosemary.
Not to be confused with sweet basil that’s commonly used to make pesto, the medicinal properties of holy basil have been known for thousands of years, and the herb is considered sacred by the Hindus in the Indian subcontinent.
Holy basil has been shown scientifically to exhibit anti-inflammatory, antidiabetic, antistress, anti-carcinogenic, radioprotective, neuro-protective, cardio-protective, hepatoprotective, and immunomodulatory activities.
Holy Basil is an adaptogen that supports the body’s endogenous antioxidant activity to help combat oxidative stress. For example, it contains numerous phytochemicals such as rosmarinic acid, eugenol, apigenin, and carnosic acid.
These compounds reportedly prevent chemical-induced skin, liver, oral, and lung cancers by increasing antioxidant activity, altering gene expression including upregulation of apoptosis, and inhibiting metastasis. They also prevent radiation-induced DNA damage.
Likewise, Holy Basil contains flavonoids, such as orintin and vicenin, which have reportedly protected mice against gamma radiation-induced sickness and death.
Due to its ability to boost antioxidant capacity, decrease oxidative stress, and protect against gamma radiation sickness, it’s plausible holy basil might help protect the body from EMFs as well.
Holy Basil leaves can be consumed in foods. They have a spicy, lemony flavor and are used in foods in Southeast Asia, such as in Thai stir-fried dishes.
CAUTION: Holy basil shouldn’t be consumed by individuals on blood-thinning medications or who have low blood sugar. Women who are pregnant or trying to conceive shouldn’t consume holy basil.
Possibly the world’s most popular adaptogen, ashwagandha has been used since antiquity for reproductive health and is currently used for a variety of ailments from relieving anxiety to increasing longevity.
Scientific studies confirm ashwagandha contains antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, immune-modulating, anti-stress, anti-Parkinson, anti-Alzheimer, anti-diabetic, cardioprotective, neurodefensive, and anti-cancer properties.
For instance, ashwagandha inhibited metastasis of breast cancer in rats with minimal adverse effects, according to a study published in the Public Library of Science. It has also been reported to mitigate undesirable side effects of gamma radiation therapy by protecting the liver from damage and increasing antioxidant capacity in rats.
Ashwagandha’s powerful protective properties may be due, in part, to its ability to boost antioxidant capacity and combat oxidative stress. For instance, ashwagandha has been used for several thousand years in Ayurvedic medicine to treat numerous neurological disorders. A recent systematic review of the scientific literature concluded that ashwagandha protects the brain from oxidative stress.
Since ashwagandha contains powerful antioxidant properties and can protect against oxidative stress caused by physical and chemical stressors, such as radiation, it’s plausible ashwagandha may protect against other forms of radiation as well, including radiofrequency EMFs.
Ashwagandha can be consumed as a tea, tincture, powder, or supplement.
Caution: Pregnant women shouldn’t consume ashwagandha. Ashwagandha can lower blood pressure and blood sugar and elevate thyroid hormone levels. Speak with your health care practitioner prior to consumption.
Reishi may also provide protection from EMF radiation. A study published in Food Chemistry in 2010 reported that reishi repaired cells that were damaged by gamma radiation. The authors concluded that the use of reishi “is a promising approach for protection from radiation exposure.”
Reishi extract has also been shown to suppress inflammation, scavenge free radicals, and decrease oxidative damage.
Due to its ability to decrease oxidative stress and repair cells damaged by gamma radiation, it’s plausible reishi might help protect the body from radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as well.
Reishi can be consumed as a whole mushroom as well as in a tea, tincture, or extract.
Caution: Reishi mushrooms can cause dizziness, dry mouth, itching, nausea, stomach upset, and rash. Individuals with bleeding disorders or low blood pressure, as well as women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, should consult with their health care provider before consuming reishi. Individuals that will be undergoing surgery shouldn’t consume reishi.
As these examples can attest, herbs and spices (and mushrooms) can help protect us from potential damage caused by exposure to man-made EMFs. If we can learn to harness their power, herbs and spices can help us become more resilient—even when faced with growing exposure to radiation.
