Escaping EMF Radiation for Our Family's Health: Tara Lowther

Escaping EMF Radiation for Our Family's Health: Tara Lowther

By Tara Lowther (@themaverickmama)

Once upon a time, in a suburban neighborhood not too far away, there lived a family of six—Mom, Dad, and four young children. We were your typical suburban family, with a white picket fence, a two-car garage, and a lawn so green it looked like a golf course. But beneath the surface of our seemingly perfect suburban life, there was a brewing storm.

Escaping for Our Health

Our family was plagued by a genetic mutation known as MTHFR, which made us more susceptible to the harmful effects of electromagnetic field (EMF) radiation. For those unfamiliar with the MTHFR gene mutation, it's a genetic condition that affects the body's ability to convert certain nutrients into usable forms, which can lead to a variety of health issues. One of the lesser-known consequences of this mutation is an increased sensitivity to EMF radiation. This means that for people like us, exposure to everyday electronic devices and wireless networks can have more severe health effects than for the average person. 

As a mother of four, I was determined to do everything in my power to protect my family from the harmful effects of EMF radiation and the many other toxins we are exposed to in the suburbs. After much research and soul-searching, my husband and I made the life-changing decision to leave the suburbs and embark on an off-grid homesteading adventure. Our journey began with the purchase of a 22-acre plot of land in the Arizona high desert. The land was hostile but full of potential and promise.

Living in Harmony with Nature

We spent the first few months living in a canvas bell tent while we built our dream home—a two-story, off-grid cabin. The cabin was designed to be completely self-sufficient, with solar panels for electricity and a solar powered well for water. We do, however, still need internet for our jobs, so we made sure to protect ourselves by using multiple Lifetune devices in our home. 

As we settled into our new off-grid lifestyle, we quickly discovered the joys of living in harmony with nature. Our days were filled with tending to our vegetable garden, caring for our chickens and rabbits, and exploring the surrounding desert. The kids thrived in their newfound freedom, and we all reveled in the simple pleasures of a life lived off the grid.

Suburbia to Serenity

Of course, our journey wasn't without its challenges. There were times when we missed the convenience of city life and the comfort of our suburban home. But for every hardship, there were countless moments of pure magic—watching the sunset down the valley, listening to the coyotes howl, and gathering around the campfire to share stories and laughter. As we learned to live off the land, we also discovered the importance of community. Our homesteading neighbors became our friends and mentors, teaching us the skills we needed to survive and thrive in our new environment. We formed a close-knit community of like-minded individuals, all committed to living a more sustainable, self-sufficient lifestyle. 

Looking back on our journey from suburbia to serenity, I can't help but feel grateful for the challenges we faced and the lessons we learned. Our off-grid homesteading adventure not only allowed us to protect our family from the harmful effects of EMF radiation but also gave us the opportunity to reconnect with nature, embrace a simpler way of living, and focus on living as non-toxic as possible. 

For those considering a similar journey, I offer a few pieces of advice: 

Advice for Pursuing a Life Off-Grid

  1. Do your research: Learn everything you can about off-grid living, sustainable building practices, and the unique challenges of your chosen location.

  2. Be prepared for hard work: Building and maintaining an off-grid homestead is no easy feat. Be ready to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty. 

  3. Embrace the community: Don't be afraid to ask for help and advice from your neighbors and fellow homesteaders. You'll be amazed at the wealth of knowledge and support available in the off-grid community.

  4. Enjoy the journey: Above all, remember to savor the small moments and celebrate your accomplishments. The journey to off-grid living is a rewarding one, full of adventure, growth, and discovery. 

As for us, we're still living our dream on our little slice of heaven in the desert. Our homestead is a testament to our commitment to protecting our family's health and living in harmony with nature. And while we may miss the convenience of our former suburban life from time to time, we wouldn't trade our off-grid homesteading adventure for anything. So here's to the journey, the challenges, and the joys of off-grid living. May our story inspire others to embrace a more sustainable, self-sufficient lifestyle and find their own slice of serenity in the great outdoors.
