If you read carefully your course 225 – Electromagnetic Waves, you’ll become more sensitive to all the waves around you. In our home, we manage without a television, a micro-wave or a dishwasher. I was almost proud of myself when I realised how much health issues I was unconsciously avoiding by living this way. I also dutifully checked outside my home to make sure no electric pillar was having a bad influence on us (also a newsflash from that course). Nope, none in sight. Joy. Until my boss sends me a new topic for the blog: the blue light from our friendly computers is a potentially serious danger!
What Do You Mean “Blue Light”?
Ok, so I had a feeling that working in front of the computer was not 100% healthy. But Blue Light? Come on! I see no blue coming from my screen… and even so, why is that bad for me?
So there’s such a thing as a color scale (not sure if that’s the scientific word) where you have different shades of colors and some are good and some are bad for you. Even in the blue section, you have light blue that’s good (not to be found in our computers though) and blue-violet, the bad kind, the one we use. Great. If only the inventors of current screen would have studied some of that science, they would have chosen the relaxing and soothing light-blue, instead of the blinding other kind.
But never despair! Here at the AMCC we never cry or complain unless we have a solution! That is, until the screen-making people realise their mistake and change their recipe.
a) Wear cool glasses
For some reason, this solution is still not very popular. Have you heard of someone taking out their anti-blue-shade glasses before starting their computer work? I have yet to see that. Well, that might take a while since I work on my own. The only people who can truly benefit from this solution is the already-wearing glasses kind of people. Then they just have to switch lenses and put some cool purple-shade glasses instead of their regular one (you barely see the difference – I know: my boss showed me his!)
b) Add to your Diet
Yes, you’ve read correctly. A change of diet, or rather – you just take supplements, for three months (according to specialist Dr. Kunze) can improve and even heal your eye traumatisms (it’s the actual expression, in French anyway). So we’re talking about lutein, vitamin E, zinc and antioxidants. The Dr. in question recommends this after 40 years of age.
c) Change your Computer Parameters
Ok, that one sounds pretty easy. You just look into your screen display options (if you have a Mac, like me, I can tell you it’s there) you can change your color! I’m talking about switching to “night mode”, albeit for the whole day. And this means the Mac takes out the blue-violet shade that’s so problematic and put an yellow-red version instead. I’m not saying I felt a life-change since then but a few things happened in my life that maybe could be associated with that?
If you work in front of a computer all day, don’t just worry about posture, ventilation, breathing, hand problems and fatigue. Now you have a new concern: blue light! Your eyes can suffer cataract or even blindness… unless you try one of our solutions, or change jobs. We’re hoping to develop a bit this idea to add it to our 225: Electromagnetic Waves course. Just to make sure we’re really fully aware of all of our lives’ dangers. In natural health medicine, you can’t always see life with rose-coloured glasses!
