EMFs are electromagnetic frequencies and include exposures to power cables, radio transmitters, Wi-Fi and x rays. In today’s society it is almost impossible to avoid potentially harmful Electromagnetic Fields within in our homes and work life. The chaotic waves of electromagnetic (EM) radiation pass through the body and interfere with cellular communication, brain activity, and nervous system function, making the body weaker, less able to balance, and more quickly fatigued. All is not lost because there are many ways to help you reduce exposure and diminish the effects of these frequencies. Below are some tips to help reduce exposure to EMFs as well as tools to block and diminish the effects of EMFs.
Tips to cut down on EMF exposure:
- Avoid keeping ANY electrical items in your bedroom area, especially as the sleeping area where you spend up to 8 hours at a time is one of the most important places to keep clean. For example, radio clocks emit electric and magnetic fields. If you are particularly electro-sensitive, switch everything off at the fuse box for your bedroom.
- Avoid metal bed bases and metal spring mattresses; they can magnetize ambient EMFs and can easily become magnetized.
- Ensure, when sleeping, your head is not near large amounts of wiring or fuse boxes inside the wall your bed is against or on the other side of the wall.
- Consider buying an EMF tester if you are serious about checking for EMFs inside and outside your home.
- Cordless phones have been found to be as dangerous as cell phones. Get rid of your cordless phones, switch to phones with cords; especially, ensure you are not keeping a cordless phone base in your bedroom at night.
- Switch to wired broadband, or at least switch off your Wi-Fi at night (you can use timers that Christmas lights work from to do this automatically).
- Check if you are within 500 meters of power lines and ideally avoid living near them. Generally, living within 500 meters is considered undesirable.
- Smart meters measure electricity, gas, and water usage and send the information wirelessly, direct to the utility company. If you have a wireless “smart” meter, call your utility company and request a safe analog meter.
- Be aware, house alarm systems, some music systems, games consoles, and baby monitors also use Wi-Fi – switch back to wired versions.
- If you have dealt with all the internal sources of EMFs, but are concerned about your neighbour’s Wi-Fi, cell phone towers, or power lines, consider using EMF shielding wall paint, which contains EMF-absorbing carbon molecules. You can also buy window nets, which contain silver-plated copper to block EMFs.
- You can also shield yourself further at night by buying a sleep canopy to hang over your bed; this is special netting made with the silver-plated copper to block EMFs.
- Clothing that shields radiation is also available, with silver woven into the cotton. This may be of particular interest for pregnant women
- Hairdryers emit high levels of electrical fields – avoid use at night and preferably use the wall-mounted versions.
Note: alongside cordless phone decks, cell phone and computer chargers are some of the highest EMFs emitting devices in our homes; keep 3-5 meters away from them when possible.

Tools to help combat EMFs:
In today’s society it is impossible to avoid
potentially harmful Electromagnetic Fields. Shungite can be used to block or diminish EMFs. Pendants, mobile phone stickers, pyramids and other shapes are commonly used for this purpose. See more Shungite products for blocking EMF
Cacti plants really do absorb electromagnetic radiation, and it is a good idea to keep them around your computer. NASA concluded that the best ones were Cereus cacti – preferably with 5 heads. They are thought to have evolved self-protective mechanisms to defend themselves from the harsh radiation of the desert.
Himalayan salt lamps emit negative ions and help balance the air in rooms with computers – keep them near your computer.
Blue light exposure has been shown to impact your body’s circadian rhythm (your body’s natural body clock) .
Natural exposure to blue light during the daylight hours boosts people’s energy, alertness and mood. However, elongated exposure to the waves transmitted through screen devices during the evening can disrupt normal sleep schedules.
Exposure to artificial sources of blue light include energy-saving lamps, LCD/LED screens in computers and cell phones.
Tips to help combat blue light exposure:
– Use dim, red lights for night lights.
– Avoid looking at bright screens beginning two to three hours before bed, or at least download the f.lux software, which will gradually turn your screen redder as the sun sets.
– Expose yourself to lots of bright light during the day, which will boost your ability to sleep at night, as well as your mood and alertness during daylight.
– If you work a night shift or use a lot of electronic devices at night, consider wearing blue-blocking glasses available online here
