It is a common belief among ghost hunters is that spirits can cause health issues. There have been reports of people getting very ill when dealing with a bad spirit. When they move away or the spirit is no longer in their environment, they get better. How is this possible?
All forms of life have a bio-electric field of energy surrounding it. That bio-electric field can easily be influenced by things like electromagnetic pollution and other things. The very cells of our body carry a negative charge.
What does that mean for paranormal investigators? How could paranormal activity affect us?
Some people are EMF hypersensitive. This means that smaller levels of EMF can affect them negatively.
There have been a number of reported health problems related to exposure to EMF. The World Health Organization (WHO) has reported on this. Symptoms most commonly reported include:
Dermatological (redness and burning sensations)
Neurasthenic and vegetative symptoms (fatigue, dizziness, nausea, depression, hart palpitation and digestive problems)
EMF hypersensitivity resembles chemical sensitivity. Both are apparent toxicological or physiological symptoms.
Positive Ions and How They're Bad for Your Health
Another negative way a ghost could attack us is with the use of positive ions.
Positive ions are molecules with a positive charge. Most forms of pollution and harmful chemicals in the air all carry a positive charge. Positive ions overall are bad for our health. If you have ever felt depressed, anxious or stressed for no apparent reason you might be suffering from positive ion poisoning.
Positive ions also contribute to low energy, tension, asthma, migraines and depression. Other symptoms of absorbing too many positive ions include inflammation, mood swings, chronic pain, worsened allergies, immune system issues, it goes on. These ions are small enough to be absorbed through your skin and lungs.
Negative ions, in contrast, are good for us. They are good for our physical health and good for our mental health. They are generated by nature.
High negative ion areas include forests, waterfalls, after a heavy rain, and beaches. Isn’t funny these are all the places we want to go on our vacation? It’s like our body knows something. That refreshing taste and smell in the air after a thunderstorm is the air saturated with negative ions. You can also buy negative ion generators for your home and office if you can’t wait for the next thunderstorm.
Possible Sources of EMF and Positive (Bad) Ions
So, what generates EMF and positive ions?
Actually, the source of both can be the same thing. Electronic devices are known for high levels of EMF and generating positive ions, for starters. Televisions, cell phones, computers are all bad in this regard. Carbon dioxide in the air is also made up of positively charged ions. Strong winds, dust, humidity and pollution are other positive ion generators.
Spirits are known to generate an electromagnetic field (EMF) and I believe they can also affect the charge of a molecule, thus creating either positive charged ions or negative charged ions. I think this is how they affect us in the physical world. They bombard their target with high levels of focused EMF and positive ions. This causes depression, skin problems, internal organ problems, immune problems and other health issues. They cause an overall low quality of life.
Health Issues When Ghost Hunting
Physically, the positive ions and EMF generated by paranormal activity can attack our organs (starting with our skin, the biggest organ on our body).
The high EMF spirits can radiate often first causes skin symptoms like prickling, burning sensations and rashes. Later, exposure can cause pain and ache in muscles, internal organ problems, and many other physical health issues.
Mentally, high EMF and positive ions can compromise the nervous system with symptoms like headache, fatigue, sleep disturbances and other mental health problems.
Emotionally, there is the risk of depression, anxiety, stress and other emotional problems. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), EMF Hypersensitivity is a real and sometimes a disabling problem for the affected persons.
What to Do About EMF Hypersensitivty
How can we combat this? If you are going through something spiritual, I recommend you contact a reputable healer, your local church or someone who can help remove the spirit. It’s not easy, and we don’t always know if it works the first time.
In the meantime, get out of the house and go to the closest forest, beach or waterfall and soak in some negative ions. If you can afford it, purchase a quality negative ion generator. You can find them on Amazon.com.
