EMF protection for the home is important to consider especially today with so many of us completely addicted to technology. If you are looking to reduce your exposure to EMF radiation, there are a number of ways to protect your home. Including EMF shielding, filters, and fabrics.
EMF shielding is one of the most effective way to protect your home from EMF radiation, as it blocks or reflects radiation away from your home. EMF filters can be used to reduce the amount of radiation in your home from your electrical wiring. EMF blocking fabrics can be used to create EMF-safe zones in your home, but they will not completely block EMF radiation.

How Do EMFs Enter My Home?
EMFs can enter our homes in a variety of ways, depending on the type of EMF and the source. For example, power lines, cell phone towers and electrical wiring emit low-frequency EMFs, while cell phones and other wireless devices emit high-frequency EMFs. They enter our homes through the walls, floors, and ceilings.
What Are The Sources of EMF radiation In Your Home?
There are many sources of EMF radiation in the home. One of the most common sources from electricity. The wiring in your home carries an electric current, which produces an electromagnetic field. Others include:
- Radiant heating systems
- Dimmer switches
- WIFI from your neighbours
- Computers and laptops
- Cell phones
- Smart technology devices
- Bluetooth/wireless speakers
Here is a video of a guy walking around inside and outside of his house. You will probably be surprised by some of the things that measured too high.
How Can I Reduce EMF Exposure In My Home?
There are many ways to reduce EMF exposure in our homes. Some simple measures include:
- Keeping electrical appliances and cords away from our bodies and beds.
- Unplugging electrical appliances when not in use.
- Using a cordless phone or speakerphone instead of holding the phone to our head.
- Using a laptop computer on a table instead of on your laps.
- Not using a microwave oven.
- Using a low EMF router or wireless router guard shield.
- Using Faraday fabric, EMF blocking curtains and wallpaper
- EMF shielding paint
How Do EMFs Affect Our Health?
EMFs are invisible areas of energy, often referred to as radiation, that are associated with the use of electrical power. They are present both indoors and outdoors and come from many sources, including power lines, cell phones, and microwave ovens.
There is a growing body of scientific evidence that suggests that exposure to EMFs can have a variety of negative health effects.
What Protection Is Available?
There are a variety of EMF protection devices available on the market today. Some of the most popular include:
- Stickers for cell phones, laptops, tablets and other devices
- Whole house neutralizer plugs
- EMF protection necklaces and pendants
- Grounding mats and grounding sheets
- EMF protective clothing
- Crystal pyramids and stones
- EMF bracelets
- Anti radiation phone cases and sleeves
- Faraday fabric and Faraday bags
- Low EMF routers and router guards
- and many more
Grounding or Earthing
A great way to neutralize the effects EMFs have on your body is to use grounding mats. You can use an earthing mat in your home while you sleep, work, watch TV, read, cook, etc and get the many benefits of earthing.
Another option is to use grounding sheets on your bed. Earthing combats against positively charged free radicals in your body. EMFs are positively charged. By reducing the positive ions, you reduce the stress on your bod, neutralize free radicals, and help to reduce symptoms associated with EMF exposure.
Using Infrared Saunas
Infrared saunas help your body to detox on a deeper level. It clears heavy metals, radioactive particles, chemicals, and improves the flow of oxygen in your body. This is a great way to combat the negative effects of electromagnetic frequency radiaiton.
But you do want to make sure you’re using a low EMF infrared sauna. If you don’t have the space in your home for a large unit there are other options.
Consider a low EMF infrared sauna blanket or one person portable low EMF saunas if you have a smaller space. They work well at clearing out free radicals and EMF effects but are less expensive and easy to put away or travel with.
Personal Anti-Radiation Protection
Since you’re exposed to electromagnetic field radiation everywhere, wearing pendants or protective jewelry and clothing are convenient options to ensure you’re exposure is reduced everywhere you go, including in your home.
It’s nice that you can throw on a shielding hoodie or hat or wear a discreet necklace that you can forget about.
Dirty Electricity in Your Home
The wires in our homes and from power lines were designed for a standard 50/60 Hertz electricity. Most of our electronics and energy efficient lights don’t use this standard.
They manipulate it into other forms of electricity or use it in bursts instead of continuously. This creates erratic surges and spikes.
All of this creates dirty electricity, a type of EMF pollution. It’s unusable and travels throughout your home or building, radiating EMFs into the rooms of your house through your outlets and the wires themselves.
And if you think about it, where are the outlets in your house? They’re conveniently located next to your bed, next to your couch and your seat in your office. Places where you usually are.
What Can I Do About Dirty Electricity?
There are two main filter types that I recommend for removing this dirty power from your home. First, you can use a whole house EMF Neutralizer which plugs into an outlet near your electrical panel. You could use a whole house dirty electricity filter that wires into your panel.
Another option is to plug in dirty electricity filters throughout your home. You can buy them one at a time or in packages of
Using these devices not only reduces the EMFs in your home but it also saves you money, reducing the cost of your electricity bill. Everyone could benefit from that these days!
Where Should I Place Protective Devices?
This really depends on your environment, the biggest sources of electromagnetic smog around you, and the spaces you want to protect. Use an EMF meter to find the biggest sources around your home.
Ideally Start with Bedrooms
Bedrooms are always a priority because we spend so much time there and sleeping is when our bodies repair, recover, and heal. Protecting from potential cellular and DNA damage while we sleep is very important.
A great option is to have a shielding bed canopy around your bed to fully block out RF radiation while you sleep. Other great choices available are sleeping with RF shielding blankets. There are kids and baby sizes available too.
You can also use these blankets on the couch, while working at your desk, over your baby’s stroller, etc. They’re a great option for pregnant women and babies but they benefit everyone.
Common Rooms and Office Spaces
When you’ve found the biggest culprits around you, you’ll want to reduce your exposure to these – like the room your WiFi Router is in.
There are many portable EMF protection items, like pyramids, crystals, plants, blankets, that you can place in rooms you spend a lot of time in or near your electronics.
If you are using a crystal pyramid and stones you want to put them between your body and the electronic device the emissions are coming from. I recently published a post on whether or not pyramids really block electromagnetic fields.
Which EMF Protection Devices Are Most Effective?
There are a variety of EMF protection devices available on the market, and it can be difficult to determine which ones are most effective.
Some devices claim to offer complete protection from all EMF radiation, while others are designed to target specific types of EMF radiation. Here is a link to my recommended products page. I can’t go over all the devices in this article because it would never end and that way you can skip to the things you are most interested in.
Some general tips are to make sure you buy from a reputable coming and make sure they are highly rated by their customers. You can test most devices yourself by taking EMF measurements with a meter to see how effective the device is..
Most Effective Protection
As I always say the most effective protection is to limit your use of electronics and distance yourself as far away as possible from the device.
You would be surprised how easy and effective some small steps make. One example is to put your wireless router into the room that is the least used, never in your office where you are working. If you have to be in the same room with it then try and be at least 6-8 week away from it.
How Do The Devices Work?
There are a variety of EMF protection devices available on the market today that claim to offer protection from the harmful effects of electromagnetic fields (EMFs). But how these devices work depends on what it is.
Some create a shield or barrier between you and the EMFs, others neutralize them, some create a better energy in your body so that you don’t feel the effects as much.
A classic example is a Faraday cage. A Faraday cage is a metal enclosure that surrounds a person or object and blocks EMF waves from entering. The metal mesh of the cage absorbs the EMF waves and prevents them from reaching the person or object inside.
How Much Do They Cost?
There are a wide variety of EMF protection devices available on the market, and the cost of these devices can vary widely. Some devices like the ones designed to be worn on the body, can cost as little as $20. While other devices that are designed to protect an entire home or office, can cost several thousand dollars.
Where Can I Find Protection Devices?
There are a number of ways to find EMF protection devices for your home. One way is to do a search online for “EMF protection devices.” This will bring up a number of websites that sell these types of products. Another way is to go to your local hardware store or home improvement store and ask if they carry any EMF protection devices. Finally, you could also contact an EMF protection company directly and ask if they have any products that would work for your home.
Are There Any Specialists?
There are a few different ways to go about this. You can either find an EMF protection specialist in your area, or you can buy an EMF meter and take some simple steps to reduce your exposure in your home.
If you want to find a specialist, the best place to start is by doing a search online. There are a number of different websites that can help you find one in your area.
