EMF is a part of our everyday lives. As we cannot avoid EMFs it is important to learn how to block EMF signals.
Electromagnetic fields (often called EMFs) are an integral part of the physical world. Magnetic and electric fields occur naturally in our body in connection with muscle and nerve activity. We also experience the Earth’s natural magnetic field and the atmosphere’s natural electric fields.
While these natural electromagnetic fields are essential to our life and well-being, electromagnetic fields from man-made sources (mains voltages and electrical currents) generally contribute to pollution that is harmful to humans.
What is the Impact of EMF Signals?
You can’t see the electromagnetic fields, but if the radiation from the electromagnetic fields were bright, it would seem that your world would also light up at night, like Times Square 10 times.
That light would pass through your windows, ceilings, walls, and almost every crack in your house. If you could hear electromagnetic fields, the sound would be like a loud bang, like someone banging on your door or other hard surfaces all the time.
To limit your exposure to EMFs, the first course of action is to protect your living space from electromagnetic fields. There are a variety of products available to help you achieve this.
In this article, we will discuss things you can do to reduce electromagnetic radiation.
Should You Be Worried About EMF Exposure?
EMFs are invisible lines of force or areas of energy emanating from matter. The human body has magnetic and electric fields that are connected to our muscular and nervous systems. Also, the earth has a natural magnetic field and there are electric fields in the atmosphere.
When we talk about health risks and EMF exposure, we are generally referring to the electromagnetic fields emitted by our electrical devices. This type of EMF exposure comes from our phones, laptops, power lines, cars, Wi-Fi, cell phone towers, and even our ovens and blenders.
Electromagnetic fields have not been under the radar until the past decade because they were not as prevalent. But now it’s a completely different ball game.
We can pick up a Wi-Fi signal almost anywhere, and many of us walk around with various personal EMF devices, such as smartphones, cell phones, and laptops.
People are beginning to realize this potential health problem. Unfortunately, there are few conclusive studies on the danger of EMF exposure, which is shameful because we are bombarded with it every day.
Most of us live in a house with Wi-Fi, a smart meter off the wall in our living room, and sleep with our smartphones near our heads. Our little ones play with our mobile phones or use electronic devices to study and play. This EMF radiation-infused technology is now a way of life for a lot of people.
There is growing scientific evidence that excessive exposure to electromagnetic fields can be harmful. So much so that in 2011, the World Health Organization (WHO) classified EMFs as “potentially carcinogenic to humans”.
Symptoms of Too Much Exposure to EMF
The adage “the dose produces the poison” can be very true of EMF exposure. It’s complicated because it differs from one person to another. Some people are quite sensitive to EMF exposure and need to take special and often extreme precautions in order to live in this world so rich in EMF.
Other people may be talking on their Bluetooth devices throughout the day and not notice any unwanted effects. The most vital thing is to listen to your body and be attentive.
Here are some symptoms of EMF exposure to look out for:
- Excessive tiredness
- Chronic headache
- Feeling stressed or “wired”
- Difficulty getting a good night’s sleep
- Stinging, burning, or tingling of the skin
- A static or buzzing feeling in the brain
- Ringing in the ears
- Unexplained hives or rashes
- Weakened immunity
- Body pain
- Hormonal imbalances that are unresponsive to treatment
How To Reduce Exposure To Electromagnetic Fields
There are several reasons some people develop electrical sensitivity to electromagnetic fields – ranging from exposure to cell phone radiation to poor diet, and everything in between. Even if you do not have symptoms of electrical sensitivity, there are a few ways you can reduce EMF contamination to improve your vitality and health:
Buy a Phone Case with EMF Protection
Mobile phones have become a necessity for many of us. They give us freedom and keep us connected at work, at home, and in the world.
Every time you put your cell phone to your ear, you absorb more than 50 percent of the radiation it transmits.
The Phone Computer Bluetooth WiFi Radiation Protection offers you and your family with maximum radiation protection while also preventing the harmful effects of DNA damage and the formulation of brain tumors.
This EMF protection for cell phones is designed to eliminate radiation emissions by neutralizing and harmonizing the effects of this harmful energy instead of blocking or shielding them.
Even with an EMF shield on your phone, we recommend texting and wearing a headset when you need to speak. Better still, if possible, use a landline connection. These are great ways to reduce cell phone radiation exposure.
Avoid Physical Contact with Your Mobile Phone and Computer
Besides purchasing a phone or tablet case to minimize EMF exposure, try not to make physical contact with your laptop, tablet, or phone.
Most mobile phone makers recommend leaving at least 10 mm of space between you and your cell phone. Don’t put your cell phone in your pocket or sports bra. And don’t go to bed with your phone close to your bed.
When you need to hold your phone by your side at night, for instance, if you are using your phone’s alarm function, make sure you hold it at least six feet away. Under no circumstances should you put your laptop on your lap when trying to get pregnant.
You’ve probably heard the term “grounding”. If you have not, it’s a simple way to improve your health in several ways, including detoxing from electromagnetic field exposure.
Just put your bare feet on the ground and let them absorb negatively charged electrons from the Earth.
These negatively charged electrons can help remove all heavy metals, air pollution, and trans fats, and reduce the inflammation that causes so many diseases today, including cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and automobile diseases.
The electrons from the Earth act as a magnetic mop, cleaning positively charged electrons, igniting and creating balance in your electrical circuits.
Use Healing Crystals
All crystals have energy and many can boost your energy field. If gemstones or crystals are your thing, many can help lessen the effects of exposure to electromagnetic fields. For instance, the Black Tourmaline Necklace is a grounding stone with protective properties. It will protect and prevent any type of negative energy from attaching to you.
Create a Low-EMF sanctuary
Most homes use wireless internet. If you live in a big city, you probably have about 20 individual wireless networks within the range of your computer. Turn off your Wi-Fi when not in use to reduce EMF pollution in your home and neighborhood. Just plug your wireless router into a power strip. Whenever you get up from your computer for a while, and especially when you go to sleep, turn it off. If you want to go online in the morning, just press the power strip.
Remove the Smart Meters
A hidden source of EMF in your home could be coming from your smart meter. Smart meters are electronic devices that record electricity consumption at regular intervals (usually several times per minute or hour).
These smart meters are in continual wireless interaction with the utility company to monitor and bill. These signals can enter your home depending on your location.
What Does the Research Say About Smart Meters?
Research also shows that in communities with wireless smart meters, inhabitants complain of symptoms they did not experience before the smart meters were installed.
In fact, residents were often unaware that smart meters were installed. Some symptoms are: fatigue, insomnia, headache, tinnitus/hearing loss, palpitations, irritability, decreased cognitive function, and weakened immune function. If the meter is located right outside your room, consider investing in a shielding or protective device to reduce EMF exposure. Many people report health issues after being around smart meters. So make sure your home is safe.
Spend More Time in Nature and With People
The basic steps for reducing EMF exposure listed above are a great place to start getting happier and healthier. You can go further by taking your time every day to disconnect from modern technology completely.
For instance, try turning off your computers, phones, and televisions at a certain time every day and take time to reconnect with your family. You can also take time each day to be in nature, or practice yoga/meditation, or read a book.
How Can I Reduce the EMF in my Home?
Use Electric Filters
Electrical filters can reduce the high-frequency radiation generated by home appliances. The amount of filters required does not depend on the size of the building or house but the number of devices used by the establishment. An average-sized building would likely require about 20 filters.
Use Protective Paint
There are paints on the market that minimize microwave and radiofrequency radiation by about 99 percent. These paints are intended for indoor use as a primer and can be painted with standard latex paint. You may need to use a licensed electrician to use protective paint as this requires a MU grounding strap and grounding kit.
Use Protective Canopies
Exposure to EMFs and RF affects sleep quality by changing brain wave patterns. Using protective canopies like the Bamboo Orgone Blankets can minimize exposure by blocking 95 to 99 percent of RF/EMF thanks to the polyester-copper-silver mesh. The sheet should be kept under the bed or carpet and is hemmed on all sides.
For best results, it is important to install this item with the canopy in a low AC field environment. It is recommended that you use an AC electric field meter, a body voltage kit, or with the help of an EMF test engineer to ensure that the sleeping area has minimal exposure to the AC electrical field. Installing a remote switch can help reduce AC electrical fields in bedrooms.
Use Baby Blankets
Children are at higher risk than adults when it comes to EMF exposure. As their immune systems are still in the developmental stage, they are more sensitive to the effects of electromagnetic fields. Like protective canopies, baby radiation blankets create a safe environment in which the baby can grow and develop with minimal daily radiation exposure.
You can use the baby blanket to protect your baby from all potentially harmful effects of EMF exposure during this endangered phase of life.
Use an RF/EMF Window Protection Film
Most of the RF and EMF radiation that enters a home comes through windows. These protective films reduce up to 99 percent of the 5 GHz frequencies (most mobile phone signals operate at 2.4 GHz). To use these films, just cut the size you want from the roll and apply it to the window.
Use Radiation Protection Shields for Your Devices
Devices such as microwave ovens are quite popular in many homes because they offer a practical way to heat food. The only issue is that microwave ovens emit a lot of harmful radiation when in use. Purchase a protective shield to reduce radiation exposure by using a shield that goes well with your kitchen decor.
Make your home not only your happy place but also your place of safety. Using protective shields ensures that you and your family are protected from harmful radiation from devices and electronics in your home. You don’t want to take chances when it comes to your health and that of your loved ones.
