What is EMF Protection? How To Protect Yourself from EMFs

EMF protection is more important today than ever. We are surrounded by wireless technology, from cell phones and cellular towers, WiFi and Bluetooth signals, smart technology and smart meters, wireless devices, appliances, and more.

Potentially Harmful To Your Health

All of this technology emits electromagnetic frequency radiation, better known as EMFs, which, according to thousands of research articles, is harmful to your health.

Fortunately, there are a variety of EMF protection devices that can reduce your exposure to EMFs by blocking, absorbing or harmonizing the waves.

Some can also help reduce the strength of the electromagnetic fields, making them less harmful.

Free EMF Protection

While protective tools reduce your exposure, the best EMF protection is free. These strategies are the only way to completely eliminate your exposure.  The most important things to remember are limiting your technology use and keeping distance from wireless devices.

Easier said than done, given the amount of time adults and children spend on the internet, and connected to wireless technology on our devices.

I have a ton of information on this site to help you protect yourself.

Benefits of EMF Protection

There are so many benefits to using EMF protection products, including reducing your exposure to harmful electromagnetic fields (like smartphone radiation), reducing your risk of developing health problems, and improving your overall health and well-being.

There are thousands of studies linking electromagnetic radiation to health issues including; fertility difficulties, brain cancer, cellular and DNA damage, eye problems, diseases, and more.

To protect yourself, your family, and your pets, you really need to start taking action towards reducing EMF exposure in your home, workplace, and community.

Symptoms of Exposure

There are a number of non-specific symptoms that have been associated with EMF radiation exposure. People who have these symptoms may actually have an electromagnetic hypersensitivity (or EHS).

These can include;

  • Headaches
  • Fatigue and dizziness
  • Tinnitus (ringing in ear)
  • Nausea
  • Skin rashes
  • Changes in blood pressure and heart rate
  • Anxiety, depression
  • Changes in brain activity

Some people report feeling a “tingling” sensation or ” pins and needles” when they are exposed to EMF radiation (even while using their mobile phones). These are all just short-term effects of chronic exposure to radiation.

There are also serious long-term effects that have been linked to continual use and exposure to EMF radiation. And so much we still don’t know as we are just seeing now the kids who have been born with technology and started exposure in the womb.

What Is Electromagnetic Frequency Radiation?

EMF radiation comes from invisible waves of energy that travel through the air and are emitted by electrical devices. It’s a type of non-ionizing radiation, made up of electric and magnetic fields.

ELF Radiation

EMF waves are classified into several categories, including: extremely low frequency (ELF) waves and radio frequency (RF) waves. ELF waves are emitted by electrical devices that operate at very low frequencies (1 Hz to 300 Hz).

This includes power lines, electrical wiring in homes, electrical equipment, and home appliances.

RF Radiation

RF waves move between two antennas (a transmitter and receiver) are classified as a class 2 carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (part of the World Health Organization). They include radio waves and microwaves in the 3KHz to 300GHz wavelength range.

Some examples are WiFi, Bluetooth, Smart Meters, radar, cell phones and cellular towers, radio and TV signals.

Who Is At Risk of Exposure?

Unless you live completely off-grid in the middle of nowhere, then you are being exposed to various levels of EMR emissions and should really look at protective measures for your mobile phone, devices, and the RF radiation around you.

Your home is surrounded by electromagnetic radiation from your power lines, electrical wiring, appliances, to your WIFI, Bluetooth, 5G, smartphones, wireless routers and more.

Who Is Most Vulnerable?

Children, babies, and pregnant women are more vulnerable to the effects of EMFs. Children have thinner skulls, meaning they can absorb more emissions than adults.

For everyone else, it really depends on the individual as there are many factors that cause us to react to the emissions.

Some people may be more sensitive to EMF than others and could have electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS). They may experience negative health effects at lower levels of exposure.

People with chronic health conditions or who are taking certain medications may have a greater susceptibility.

What Kind Of Protection Is There?

Fortunately, with advances in technology, there have also been many advances in protection from this technology.

One popular type of is a Faraday cage, which is a metal enclosure that blocks EMF waves from entering or exiting. Faraday cages are often used to protect electronic equipment from EMF interference. Faraday mesh is used in cell phone pouches, laptop bags, backpacks, purses, etc.

Not only does it completely block signals from reaching the electronic device inside, but it also has cybersecurity features, blocking hackers, and GPS tracking.

Personal Protection

You can purchase protective products that stay with you at all times, like pendants, bracelets, EMF clothing and hats, cell phone cases, etc. This way, wherever you go, you will have a level of protection, blocking you from absorbing all the RFs around you (like public Wi-Fi hotspots, Bluetooth signals, 5G towers).

Home or Office Protection

There are also things you can do for your home and office to reduce emissions coming into your house and to manage the electronics within your house. Some of these include, EMF paint, anti-radiation curtains and material, blankets, router guards, bed canopies, dirty electricity filters, grounding sheets, crystals and even some plants.

You have a lot of choices when it comes to anti-EMF protection. I hope on this site you will find the best strategies and products for you, your home and family.

Specific Protection

Other products are designed for a specific EMF shielding purpose, like air tube headphones (which shield your head from radiofrequency emissions from cellphones), cell phone cases or pouches, low EMF routers, etc.

How Do EMF Protection Devices Work?

EMF protection devices work by blocking, absorbing, harmonizing or redirecting electromagnetic fields. They create a barrier between you and the EMF source. By absorbing or reflecting the EMF wavelengths, this type of shielding technology prevents the emissions from reaching your body.

This allows you to avoid short-term symptoms and long-term health concerns. Many of these items have other features and benefits too (like improved sleep, better sense of balance, improved mood, etc.)

Research and Testing

Different technologies and brands have varying levels of research, independent laboratory testing, and data on their safety and effectiveness. I take this into consideration when looking at all anti-radiation gadgets and products.

There are some reputable brands I trust and really like, including DefenderShield, Lambs, Mission Darkness, SLNT, SYB, Hooga, Q-Link, among others. These guys deliver quality and effective products, many of which I have.

The best way to see if these products work is to test them yourself with an EMF meter. There should be a clear and measurable difference before and while using them.

How Do I Know If I Need Anti-Radiation Protection?

I would argue that everyone needs protective products and gadgets, as we’re all using wireless technology, carrying around cellphones, have WiFi in our homes and workplaces or schools, etc. Whether you live in the city or country, you’re around EMF emissions all day and night.

A great way to assess your home for the biggest sources of these emissions and where you should start is to test your home with an electromagnetic field meter. EMF meters are easy to use, and give clear measurements and readings. My favorite is the Trifield meter. You can even find where the nearest 5G towers are with meters.

If you are concerned about your exposure (and since you’re here I’m guessing you are) then you’ve come to the right spot. You will find answers to all your questions and a greater understanding of where to get started. It can be a little overwhelming at times! 

 If you’re concerned about symptoms you have that you think are linked to RF exposure, it is important to consult with a qualified health professional.

What Are The Best EMF Protection Products?

I have so many favorite shielding products and in so many different categories. I guess that’s why I have this website! I could talk about this topic for hours.

Since there are a lot of different EMF protection products on the market, it can be hard to know which are the best. Here are a few things to look for when choosing EMF protection products:

  1. Make sure the product is certified by an independent testing laboratory. This ensures that the product actually works as advertised.
  2. Look for products that offer a money-back guarantee. This shows that the company stands behind its product.
  3. Look at the reviews left by customers.
  4. See if it’s something I recommend or check out my recommendations.

How Can I Reduce My Risk of RF Radiation Exposure?

There are a number of things you can do to help reduce your risk of EMF radiation exposure. Some involve changing your habits with wireless technology, while other ways are about shielding yourself from what’s already out there. Here are ways to get started.

  1. Use personal EMF protection products.
  2. Limit your iPhone or android use and use the best EMF products available for phones.
  3. Turn off your WiFi router at night or switch to the JRS eco router.
  4. Get rid of any smart technology in your home.
  5. Don’t use Bluetooth, use wired connections instead.
  6. Get rid of your air pods and switch to air tube earbuds.
  7. Ground yourself daily (outside barefoot in nature or with a grounding mat).
  8. Switch to downloading and using offline instead of streaming
  9. Remember that distance reduces exposure (laptop computers shouldn’t be used on your lap).
  10. Make your bedroom a safe zone (keep your iPad and cellphone out).
  11. Get a meter to regularly test your home.

Does Anti-Radiation Clothing Work?

I love protective clothing. I wear it as much as I can and it’s something I often gift to family members.

In the last couple of years, the line of clothes has really expanded and I hope more brands jump on board. You can get shirts, hats, underwear, sweatshirts, blankets, baby items, pregnancy items, gloves, socks, etc. Here are my recommendations for EMF radiation protection clothing in each category.

How Does Shielding Apparel Work?

Shielding clothes and hats are lined with a metal mesh or conductive fabric (usually silver), woven into cotton, spandex, etc. The most reputable brands are independently lab tested and block 99% of EMF radiation (including 5G, Bluetooth, WiFi, etc).

This creates a type of Faraday cage that shields your body by preventing wireless radiation from passing through.  Some even offer UV radiation protection.

Benefits of Blocking Clothes

The silver fabric has many other benefits as well. It’s antibacterial and anti-odor, breathable and lightweight. This technology helps to regulate your temperature and keeps you cool. Can’t say any of your regular clothes do that, can you?

Research studies have shown improvements in sperm quality after using anti-radiation boxers. They help to reduce oxidative stress, and improve heart rate variability.

I really love this technology!

Faraday Cages and Bags

One of the most common types of EMF protection is a device known as a Faraday cage. This is an enclosure made of a conductive material (like copper or aluminum). It blocks electromagnetic fields by conducting currents around the item within the cage, shielding your device.

This blocks signals from reaching your mobile phone (within the cage) or any wireless signals from making contact. It also protects from EMPs.

There are several companies that make products using Faraday cage technology in all different sizes, including cell phone pouches, purses, backpacks, duffel bags, and gigantic storage bags. Faraday technology also is in protective clothing and other gear.

Used By the Military, Law Enforcement, and Political Leaders

This technology shields your location (GPS data), and protects from hackers and tracking. Hackers can’t access wireless devices that are inside a Faraday pouch or container. This protects personal, confidential, and important information, financial data, passwords, emails etc.

No wonder it’s used by the military, forensics experts, law enforcement, business and political leaders, and preppers.

In Conclusion: Time To Take Action

I hope this information has helped give you knowledge to be less overwhelmed about getting started on reducing your EMF exposure.

There are so many things you can do and use for personal protection, reducing your exposure in general, and protecting your home, office, family and pets.

With 5G rolling out and more scientific evidence coming out on the potential harm, there’s even more reason to start this journey to reduce your health risks associated with these emissions today. 

The best thing you can do for yourself, your loved ones, and your pets is to take action towards protecting yourself. By providing a barrier between you and the source of the EMF you can reduce your exposure.
