    Default Computer Screens and TV screens a trigger for anyone?

    Anyone else have computer or TV screens as a trigger for flushing etc.?

    Does anyone know of any kinds of screen filters or even masks/shields (to wear at home) that will filter out the radiation or maybe even the heat that causes this?

    I am not exactly sure what it is that causes it but I always get red faced and flushed if I am on the computer of watching TV for more then 20-30 mins.

    There are a few older threads where this is discussed. This one may be of help:

    Hey jhnnygdy - would you mind sharing where you purchased your screen/filter from (make/mode/brand etc.)? You are the first I have found to say they found one that works...

    Thanks

    The other threads cover it (some a little too much), but one thought I have is that OLED technology may be the saving grace for those with sensitivity to fluorescent light and/or emf. It uses a small fraction of the power of even LCDs and doesn't require a backlight.

    Google and youtube it today

    1,000mg Solgar MSM
    25mg diphenhydramine
    Rosacea Care moisturizer, tinted ZincO
    I avoid multi-vitamins and most other high-dose vitamins and supplements, oil-based supplements (like omega 3/6, A, and E), nitrite preservatives, sugar, fruit, milk, exercising in a warm room

    Less is more!

    Hey Driven, thanks for the info.

    So is it the flourescent lighting and "emf" (what exactly does - emf - stand for?) that causes the reaction?

    I am thinking of contacting a company and asking about creating a custom fliter or even face shield but I would need to know what it is exactly that I/we need to filter out?

    I work on a 22" LCD Dell Monitor/Display but the same thing happens to me on older CRT's as well as FlatScreen Televisions.

    Thanks

    EMF stands for eectromagnetic field. Some people are sensitive to them. With LCDs it's usually the flourescent backlight, since they're pretty low power. With CRTs I don't think anyone knows for sure, because they emit several different kinds of radiation. It's also important to note that the severity of the problem depends on the brand of CRT - some are shielded better than others. I've sat 4 feet in front of a 27" Magnavox TV for hours playing video games and not had any issues whatsoever, while a 27" JVC caused symptoms within minutes, from 8-10 feet away. My 17" Digiview monitor causes zero problems.

    Unfortunately, it's difficult to tell which are better/worse in the store, since you're being bombarded from all sides.
