WiFi And Anxiety, Is There A Connection?

December 11, 2014

“The Debate Over Wifi And Anxiety And Other Mental Health Challenges Is Under Way.”

Hard to believe, I know. How in the world could something we don’t necessarily think of or even notice throughout our day, be the reason for my anxiety? Well let me be the first one to ever tell you this.

The Results Are In, And They Don’t Look Good…

Let’s take for example what The American Academy of Environmental Medicine had to say about the connection between wi-fi, and anxiety, and the effects it truly has on us:
“Adverse health effects from wireless radio frequency fields, such as learning disabilities, altered immune responses, and headaches, clearly exist and are well documented in the scientific literature,”

But before we can actually dig a little deeper into the connection between wifi and anxiety, let’s first understand what wifi is;

WiFi connects electronic devices to wireless computer networks (wireless LAN) using electromagnetic radiation. WiFi is installed in homes, schools, offices, stores, hotels, coffee shops, airports, libraries, hospitals, public buildings and even entire sections of cities. WiFi signals are, unlike TV and radio signals, strong enough to penetrate concrete walls.

Think of what it’s doing to your mind and body, let alone your kids. It’s also clear now that many health experts consider WiFi radiation to be extremely dangerous. It is now estimated that 3-5% of the growing population is “electro-magnetically hypersensitive”.

Of course the governments think it’s safe, who trust those guys anymore though. The dangers to a humans health due to WIFI radiation has been commonly dismissed due to the fact that it is actually incredibly convenient. But, scientific studies (news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/programmes/panorama/6674675.stm) tell us that when exposed for a set period of time to low-level electro-magnetic radiation, it can in fact cause many different health problems due to the fact that it disturbs the body’s own natural energy field. This causes things like:

  • A weakened immune system
  • Headaches
  • Depression
  • Memory Loss
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Ringing ears
  • Abnormal heart rates

Notice how many of the symptoms above mimic what we perceive within us to be ‘symptoms of anxiety,’ when in fact they just may be ‘symptoms of wifi’ (http://safespaceprotection.com/harmful-effects-electromagnetic-fields.aspx.

I’ve always been interested in how life’s constant improvements in nutritional science, exercising, and of course technology affects our minds and bodies in the short and long-term. I truly believe deep down after putting in the time to research this subject further, that a connection between our ‘negative’ feelings we have has something to do with the forces that we can’t see through our eyes.

Here are three things you can start doing today to protect yourself from wifi radiation, without eliminating in completely:

1) Switch Your WiFi Off At Night

Studies say the greatest danger with radiation from wi-fi comes from nighttime exposure. So it’s a good idea to turn it off at night.

2) Keep A Safe Distance From Your WiFi

Make sure you keep the maximum amount of distance you possibly can between you, and your wireless router. This is important because WiFi radiation slows way down the farther you are away.

3) Switch Up Your Wireless For Wired Connection

Replace your wireless mouse, wireless keyboard, printer and anything else you have that is wireless with wired versions with USB.

Let’s hear your opinions on this subject. Do you see a connection between WIFI and anxiety? Could it be the invisible force that’s behind what you’re feeling? Share in the comment section below…

    I have read about things like this for a few years now. It really makes a person wonder with all of the Wi-Fi spots around.

    Wi-Fi is a frequency signal, right? If your body is affected by it for long periods of time, it will certainly affect you. Good post here!

  3. I read stories in magazines about things like this. I was going to look up research on the topic and that is how I got here.

    I gave my body a break for a few months as
    I was feeling pain in my chest when downloading the Fetch software to my TV
    I felt like I was going to have an anxiety attack in my chest
    I have had this explosion once before (like a heart attack) whilst sitting at Mediterranean Café close to a newly installed Telstra tower
    The energy emitted from the Fetch TV connection generates uncomfortable vibrations in my lower face neck and chest
    It is overwhelming
    You think I am crazy but I had just had a beautiful bath and yoga session and felt so grounded and now the back of my tongue is still vibrating. How do I deactivate the wireless bridge and only use Ethernet to connect to Fetch TV?

    I read about the effects from cell phones a few years ago. My anxiety started before the boom of wifi so I know that didn’t cause mine but I am sure it isn’t helping it either! I use a salt lamp and keep it on 24/7 next to my desktop. I think it has helped a lot. I also read that when you get proper lymph drainage the effects of wifi aren’t really a problem but most people live a secondary lifestyle so it is like a BAD domino effect!

    absolutely, the lobbyist controlled governments and tech companies wont admit to it being dangerous as both have huge financial gains invested. I switched off my wifi router as it was making me ill. Within a week of it being off i noticed i wasn’t feeling nauseous and as depressed. This is a relatively new technology and we are the guinea pigs.

  7. Good suggestions but here’s what I’m going through right now. Lived in an apartment for 2 years with an ethernet connection, no wifi enabled on laptop. Downstairs the landlord has a router and uses wifi on her laptop. For years I’ve been very aware of all this stuff and doing what I can to reduce EMF exposure. I have an Acousticom2 meter to test things.

    Last week she had the service updated from Verizon. They put in a new router, a G1100. It has both 2.4 and 5 GHz channels. I don’t know what channels the previous router had. But ever since then I have severe anxiety, agitation, rage and ear pressure.! When I shut off both WIFI channels on Verizon’s website. I still have the symptoms. Only when I unplug the router does the ear pressure and emotional symptoms subside!! I unplug it at night so I can sleep. I have requested Verizon to send the previous router back so we can switch it out and see if it makes a difference.

    I totally agree. I have been saying this since the beginning when it was first introduced as I was in a remote location in Indonesia, for 6 months, and when I returned to Bali in an area full of cafes, hotels and shops I could feel the wifi everywhere I went causing me headaches and nausea and anxiety.

    I have been telling people for years, and I sleep with wifi turned off, and I even chose my living locations where there wasn’t 20 different wifi signals popping up on my lap top, but most people laugh at me and call me a hippy.

    This is totally true! Especially at night time. It is already a documented fact that WiFi and electro magnetic and static fields interupt sleep causing sleep apnea. They also have documented the beneficial results of using an anti-static mat under bed for sleep apnea with very good results. I have never suffered with depression or anxiety up until the WiFi boom came about and my anxiety is now a disorder since 4g connection arrived. And now children are falling into depression and anxiety because of phones tablets and don’t forget games consoles (as nowadays they are connected to internet)

  10. Wifi signals have been giving me headaches and sleep problems ever since the first wifi I cam into contact with.
    During the lockdown, I spent 3 months on my cousin’s farm that had zero wifi and no phone masts for over 4 miles away. The first thing Zi noticed was my Tinnitus almost disappearing my sleep dramatically improved and my anxiety issues completely stopped.
