Understanding Frequency: Frequency is invisible waves of energy that carry vibration. Everything inside and outside of our body has vibration resonating at different frequencies. A healthy body resonates in harmonious vibrations. Depression, stress, processed foods and exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF’s) from electronics and wireless devices create low and imbalanced frequencies. They cause a disruption to the natural flow of the body’s energy, compromising the immune system and creating a breeding ground for infection and disease. The more we immerse ourselves in healthy frequencies our body, mind and spirit will naturally return to a resonant, vibrant state.
