The Heartbeat of the Earth

This noteworthy passage is an excerpt about Schuman Resonance and Frequencies–The “Heartbeat” of the Earth:

It’s fascinating that we can easily rearrange the word Earth and get Heart. The Earth is a living organism, and if the earth were to have a heartbeat, it would be the Schuman resonance frequencies. We gave an introduction to the Schuman resonance in chapter 1, but let’s review and take a closer look at how these frequencies are produced.

Just as a tuning fork has resonant frequencies for sound, so does the earth and the ionosphere surrounding it have resonance frequencies for electromagnetic radiation called the Schuman resonance. Basically, the ionosphere with the earth’s surface creates a spherical wave-guide that surrounds the earth. Low frequency electromagnetic waves bounce around this waveguide. This is how short-wave radio signals are transmitted around the globe. The fundamental frequency in this spherical cavity of the earth is 7.83 hertz; which, like a tuning fork is the earth’s fundamental tone.

These frequencies are excited mainly by lighting strikes in the cavity formed by the earth’s surface and the ionosphere, but they can also be induced by solar flares. More than 7 million lighting bolts strike the earth each day. These thunderous flashes of energy ring the proverbial bell of the ionosphere to a note of 7.83 Hz and higher harmonics and octaves. This natural frequency pulsation is not a fixed number, but an average of global readings. The primary fundamental frequency is usually close to 7.83 Hz. The Schuman resonance actually fluctuates due to geographical location, lighting, solar flares, atmospheric ionization, and daily cycles. Contrary to New Age discussions, the fundamental Schuman resonance is not rising. This is according to continuous monitoring from geological observatories all around the world.

Just as a piano has varying octaves of “C”, so do Schuman frequencies. These octaves primarily fall in the 0-30 Hz range. We’ll see in the next section that this 0-30 Hz range of frequencies are the most important for our body, mind and cells. The first harmonic of 7.83 is by far the strongest with each subsequent harmonic diminishing in intensity. For all practical purposes, harmonics above the fifth are virtually undetectable.

• 1st Harmonic 7.83 Hz
• 2nd Harmonic 14.07 Hz
• 3rd Harmonic 20.25 Hz
• 4th Harmonic 26.41 Hz
• 5th Harmonic 32.45 Hz

It’s important to note that Schuman Waves are quasi-standing waves or scalar waves. As we saw in chapter four, scalar and vector potentials are causal to and more fundamental than electromagnetic waves as carriers of phase relations or information fields. A simple way to understand this is the 7.83 Schuman scalar wave is the prime broadcasting frequency for all life on earth. It appears in all living organisms. Every living thing is tuned to this frequency and it’s harmonics. It’s the most important facet of Earths Pulsed Electromagnetic Frequencies that we need for life. We all march to the cadence of this cosmic drummer— our planetary heartbeat, which sets the tempo for our health and well-being.

The Elements

The Wu Xing, (五行 wŭ xíng) also known as the Five Elements, Five Phases, the Five Agents, the Five Movements, Five Processes, and the Five Steps/Stages, is a fivefold conceptual scheme that many traditional Chinese fields used to explain a wide array of phenomena, from cosmic cycles to the interaction between internal organs, and from the succession of regimes to the properties of medicinal drugs.

The “Five Phases” are Wood (木 mù), Fire (火 huǒ), Earth (土 tǔ), Metal (金 jīn), and Water (水 shuǐ). This order of presentation is known as the “mutual generation” sequence. In the order of “mutual conquest” or “mutual overcoming,” they are Wood, Earth, Water, Fire, and Metal. “Wu Xing” is often translated as Five Elements and this is used extensively by many including practitioners of Five Element acupuncture.

The generating cycle runs as follows:

WOOD burns to feed FIRE, the ashes decompose and seep into the EARTH, once in the EARTH, minerals and Metals are born, which when melted become Water which nourishes trees and Plants or WOOD.


Fusion of the Four Pillars

The Purified Home’s Fusion of the 4 pillars results in wholeness or a harmonious life. It acts to specifically regulate the nervous system on the 4 levels with which we experience life. To achieve wholeness, we must balance the interrelationships and interdependence of the 4 pillars and their corresponding effects on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies.

Modern building practices, technology and all the furnishings we bring into our homes are a hindrance to this process. They introduce a whole host of physiological, biological and psychological stressors and contaminants, many of which are directly linked to disease and compromised health.

The 4 pillars work in a distinct cycle to maintain balance both externally and internally. This holistic system is based on 5000 years of classical Chinese medicine. It is an application of natural and functional medicine.

The Purified Home 4 Pillars utilize that ancient attention to balance and address the whole health of the home, as represented below.

Applying the Four Pillars: Water

Water quality testing and evaluation

  1. PH
  2. Electrical conductivity
  3. Total Dissolved Solids
  4. Chlorine (if applicable)
  5. Fluoride, lead, heavy metals (if applicable)

Did you know blood consists of 83 percent water, the brain and muscles are 75 percent water, and bones are 22 percent water? Water is responsible for regulating body temperature, removing waste, and cushioning joints. It is the vehicle by which nutrients and oxygen are carried into cells. The average human being can only survive up to three days without water before the body begins to shut down. Water is quite possibly the coolest, most important and taken for granted molecule on earth. Most people understand the importance of drinking high quality water. But what about that hot shower or bath, where the absorbent genius that is your skin opens its pores and begins interacting with whatever exists in the water, the most harmful of which is chlorine and or chloramines?  These chemicals are used to keep water safe from bacteria while in transit from the local water municipality to your tap. Look at this quote from the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power

“ L.A.D.W.P adds chlorine to keep water safe during its long journey to your tap. But, once the water reaches our tap, the chlorine is no longer needed.”

This may sound reassuring, but chlorine and chloramine generate byproducts called trihalomethanes, which are known carcinogens — substances known to be directly involved in causing cancer. Trihalomethanes are also directly linked to various skin diseases, dry and brittle hair, stomach discomfort, and gastrointestinal problems such as Crohn’s disease and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Diseases of the liver, kidney, and central nervous system can also be caused by exposure to trihalomethanes. Chlorine also disrupts the balance of healthy and unhealthy intestinal flora required for optimal digestion and assimilation of nutrients.

In addition to the problems with chlorine, EPA regulations are established for only 91 of the some 15,000 contaminants that have been found in public water supplies. Although there is no cost effective way to monitor the harsh chemicals and pharmaceuticals that exist in the public water supply, The Purified Home can help eliminate these problems and ensure healthy and safe water to your entire home.

Applying the Four Pillars: Electricity and Manmade Electromagnetic Frequencies

Electrical and EMF testing and assessment

  1. Body Voltage
  2. Sources of microwave frequencies and wi-fi
  3. Electric fields
  4. Magnetic fields (if applicable)
  5. Dirty Electricity (if applicable)
  6. Ion concentration (if applicable)

“The Modern Day Trojan Horse”

The human body is a bio-energetic phenomenon that generates its own electromagnetic frequencies from birth to death. The heart and brain generate the strongest frequencies in the body, and without electric impulses traveling along our nerve fibers to muscles and bones we would not exist. In order to maintain homeostasis and balance in the body and mind, we must live in dynamic equilibrium with the subtle electromagnetic frequencies generated by mother earth.

Certain types of manmade electromagnetic frequencies are used in maintaining health with great efficacy including the use of muscle stimulators by physical therapists, bone stimulators by orthopedic surgeons, laser eye surgeries by ophthalmologists, and the use of electromagnetic radiation to treat cancer by oncologists. One critical difference exists in each of these applications and that is the type of electromagnetic frequency used. Regardless, there should be no question: electromagnetic frequencies affect the human body.

The real question we want to ask is, how does the body respond and adapt to the thousands of electromagnetic frequencies generated by 60 hertz household electricity, high power lines, 3.2 billion cell phones, baby monitors cordless phones and modern wireless technology that didn’t exist 100 years ago? Here is something to think about: cell phones use specific types of microwave frequencies to carry sound from one device to another. The common household uses similar microwaves to heat up food by vibrating the water molecules that exist in the food. The human body is roughly 75 percent water. Now think about what happens when you put metal in a microwave. Now think about all the various metals that are vital to optimal functioning of the body; iron, magnesium, potassium, sodium, calcium are all metals. The implications of this connection are astounding. Even though most devices that measure the impact of electromagnetic frequencies are not sensitive enough to give us hard facts, five minutes of critical thinking and logic should tell us enough: exposure to EMFs can affect us
biologically. Look at this recent press release from the International Agency for Research on Cancer:

From May 24–31 2011, a Working Group of 31 scientists from 14 countries has been meeting at IARC in Lyon, France, to assess the potential carcinogenic hazards from exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields. Dr Jonathan Samet (University of Southern California, USA), overall Chairman of the Working Group, indicated that “the evidence, while still accumulating, is strong enough to support a conclusion and the 2B classification. The conclusion means that there could be some risk, and therefore we need to keep a close watch for a link between cell phones and cancer risk.”

The impacts on health from these unnatural frequencies — much like the exposure to leaded gasoline and paint, asbestos, high fructose corn syrup, and most pharmaceuticals — are mostly a mystery, but a host of maladies have been linked with EMFs and what is being called “microwave sickness”. The first signs of these maladies are a slow pulse and lowered blood pressure, while later-developing issues include stomach pain, chronic excitation, stress, high blood pressure, headaches and eye pain. Sleeplessness, irritability, anxiety, depression, attention deficit disorder, autism and nervousness can also be seen in time with exposure to EMFs. Other common issues that may eventually occur include hair loss, reproductive problems, adrenal exhaustion, cancer, and heart disease.

Purified Home provides solutions to these issues through education and a variety of methods to reduce in-home exposure to these potentially biological altering frequencies.

Applying the Four Pillars: Light

Complete lighting evaluation

  1. Lighting technology
  2. Color temperature
  3. Color rendering index
  4. Wattage
  5. Lumen output
  6. Bulb style

In today’s world, our eyes are inundated with artificial light during the day and well into the night. This is contrary to our evolutionary programming, as light is used by both the eyes and skin to maintain normal bodily function. For example, photoreceptors in the eyes are responsible for converting specific light waves into electrical impulses. These electrical impulses travel via the optic nerve to the brain and then to the hypothalamus gland, which is directly responsible for the autonomic or automatic functions of the body including regulating our body temperature, breathing, blood pressure, digestion, moods, appetite and immune function. Modern energy efficient lighting technologies are also a significant source of environmental and neurological stress. See the excerpt from the article below:

According to Dave Asgharian, professional engineer:
"Electricity in the United States is based on a 60-hertz alternating current (AC) system. For lighting, the US uses many different types of light bulbs such as incandescent, fluorescent, compact fluorescent, LED, etc. Incandescent bulbs emit light when the heating element inside the bulb, which is called a “filament,” is heated using AC voltage across its terminals. Once the element is hot, it consistently emits light.

Incandescent bulbs differ from fluorescent lighting (FL), which has “flicker” in it. With fluorescent lighting, luminance (a measure of light intensity) increases as AC voltage increases from zero to 120 volts. Luminance then decreases as the voltage drops from 120 volts to zero, resulting in darkness. These voltage changes occur 120 times per second. This means that, although the luminance appears consistent to the human eye, much more time is actually spent in near-darkness under fluorescent lighting than with incandescent lighting. The eye and the human body must accommodate continuous rapid gradations in brightness."

Unfortunately, the majority of artificial light does not mimic the natural color spectrum of the sun; meaning artificial light does not send balanced and coherent electrical impulses to the brain. This can lead to a host of maladies that include vision impairment, lethargy, mental and physical fatigue, as well as mood disorders such as depression and anxiety. Insomnia and sleep disorders can also be caused by an excess of artificial light, primarily as the result of the synthesis of two key hormones: serotonin and melatonin. Both of these hormones play a vital role in the biological process known as the sleep/wake cycle. When these hormones are not in balance, the entire cycle is thrown out of whack, leading to poor rest and difficulty falling asleep. Two other hormones directly affected by light and the sleep/wake cycle are ghrelin and leptin. They are produced during healthful restorative sleep and are responsible for telling the brain when to eat and when you are full. An imbalance in these hormones can make you want to eat in excess and lead to the feeling that you want to eat more, even if you have had enough to eat. This can ultimately lead to weight gain and even obesity.

The Purified Home solves the problems caused by exposure to artificial light.

Applying the Four Pillars: Air

Air Quality test and ventilation assessment

  1. Particulate count
  2. Humidity
  3. Carbon dioxide levels (if applicable)
  4. Radon testing (if applicable)
  5. Mold testing (if applicable)

Medically speaking, most doctors agree the human body can survive for three to four weeks without food, depending on your body type and environmental conditions. But how long can we survive without air? Well, the world record for holding the breath underwater is just over 22 minutes, set by Tom Sietas of Germany. For most of us, however, the longest amount of time we can hold our breath is about three to five minutes. Do us a favor plug your nose and close your mouth for a minute. This goes to show just how important air is for the human body. And having quality air and adequate ventilation is fundamental for optimal health. Millions of Americans suffer from a host of maladies due to poor air quality in the home, including hay fever, asthma, and allergies. Not to mention the risk of transmission of influenza, upper respiratory tract infections and the common cold. Poor air quality in the home can even contribute to lung cancer.

So, what is in the air at home that causes these problems? Bacteria, viruses and mold spores land on damp surfaces, reproduce, and eventually become airborne again, causing constant stress to — and an eventual weakening of — the immune system, leading to colds, the flu and exacerbation of allergies. Combustion particles, such as carbon monoxide, exist, as a result of gas burning appliances such as stoves, furnaces and dryers. These combustion particles can create persistent free radicals responsible for oxidative stress, which can result in cardiopulmonary disease and cancer. Off gassing from volatile organic compounds and flame-retardants like those found in household cleaning supplies, mattresses sofas and solvents, have been directly linked to nausea, migraines, and liver and kidney disease.

The Purified Home can test for and eliminate these problems. Think about the impact improving the air quality in the home has on overall health. The Purified Home uses a natural, energy efficient and cost effective solution that creates a safe-haven for rest and rejuvenation.
