You can’t smell or see high frequency EMFs (Electro Magnetic Frequencies), but your home is filled with these invisible waves. And while the jury is still out on their suspected side effects, one thing is certain: removing high EMFs for animal amputees (and people too) speeds wound healing and reduces phantom pain. On today’s Tripawd Talk Radio episode you’ll learn how one pet parent discovered this and healed her Tripawd cat’s phantom limb pain.
How Removing High EMFs for Animal Amputees Heals
EMFs are nothing new. The sun, earth, moon and planets generate them but so do electronic devices like computers and home wiring. These devices make our lives easier in many ways, but the modern explosion of wearable technologies and wireless consumer gadgets has pushed our EMF exposure higher than ever.
The World Health Organization concludes there isn’t enough evidence to prove that EMFs from these devices are harmful, but other scientists disagree. Clinical studies like the BioInitiative 2012 report states that constant exposure to low and high frequency EMFs definitely have an impact on the body including immune function, behavior and neurology.
Amputees like retired Maj. David Underwood would agree. Underwood said that “When roaming on a cellphone in the car kicked in, the pain almost felt like having my arm blown off again.” The Iraq War veteran participated in a University of Texas clinical study that proved EMFs amplify pain in amputees.
Effects of EMF on Pain in People and Animal Amputees
If Purrkins the Tripawd cat could talk, he would probably describe the same terrible sensations happening to him when a smart meter was installed in his home by the local power company. Since Purrkins can’t communicate to us in our language, his mom Holly interpreted on his behalf, in this fascinating episode of Tripawd Talk Radio.
A year and a half after Purrkins’ healed from his amputation caused by a soft-tissue sarcoma, he had his first phantom limb pain attack. “It was just like he was attacking where his arm used to be,” said Holly. “This happened several times, it would just come out of nowhere. We immediately started questioning what had changed.”
After an exam with Purrkins’ vet, they concluded that the smart meter was the likely cause of late-onset phantom pain and more severe twitching episodes of Purrkins’ stump.
The smart meter devices gather and transmit information, which uses the high EMF band. “Our tissue does react to electro magnetic fields and frequencies,” says our other guest, Dr. Don Nixdorf, DC, 2018 TEDx Speaker and advisor for Farabloc Development Corporation, which makes the Farabloc medical aid that reduces exposure to high frequency electro magnetic fields.
According to the University of Texas study, amputees like Purrkins and retired Maj. David Underwood are more sensitive to EMFs because they are “prone to the formation of neuromas — inflamed peripheral nerve bundles that often form due to injury — created an environment that may be sensitive to EMF-tissue interactions.” From delaying wound healing to sudden onsets of phantom pain, peer-reviewed studies prove that high EMFs can have negative consequences.
Helping Purrkins Phantom Pain with the Farabloc Blanket
Other than re-starting his Gabapentin, Holly thought there was nothing they could to do help Purrkins. But after reading about the Farabloc blanket and doing a thorough investigation of the science behind Farabloc, she and her husband decided to see if it would help Purrkins.
It’s not much to look at, but the ordinary looking fabric alleviates pain by shielding the body from man-made and environmental electromagnetic fields (EMF). Similar to the Faraday cage shielding technology, it can reduce the high EMF’s ordinarily absorbed by the body’s tissues. “The shielding blocks the body’s exposure to it (high EMFs) and the tissue heals faster, the phantom limb pain decreases,” explained Dr. Nixdorf.
“It’s our answer,” said Holly. “Purrkins was drawn to the blanket right out of the envelope. He took right to it.” She even put it in odd places that he never lays to see if she was imagining it. Every place she put the Farabloc, Purrkins went over to it. His brother Saxon did too, without any encouragement.
Thankfully, Purrkins hasn’t had one episode of phantom pain since the Farabloc arrived.
“I think it’s a combination of things,” said Holly. “We go every three months for tune-ups (acupuncture). His twitch has even reduced in frequency and intensity.”
It seems logical that the other fix for Purrkins’ phantom pain would be to remove the smart meter. Unfortunately, that’s not so simple in today’s world. “I’d love to take the smart meter off the house, but it’ll cost us. $123 will take it off and they’ll charge us $10 extra each month. They were going to charge us if we didn’t allow it to come on the house!” said Holly.
In the meantime, Purrkins finally feels good again thanks to this little blanket with powerful science behind it.
