Naturally Protecting Yourself and Your Family from EMFs

EMF protection has never been more critical than it is right now.
Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) are energy sources that emanate from electrical and electronic devices. They consist of both electric fields (EF) and magnetic fields (MF), and they can be classified into two main categories:
Non-ionizing EMFs: These have lower energy levels and are generally considered safe. Examples include radio waves, microwaves, and visible light.
Ionizing EMFs: These have higher energy levels and impact living tissues by ionizing atoms or molecules, which can damage cellular and DNA. Examples include X-rays and gamma rays.
Both of these categories can have harmful effects and can damage living tissue.
Impact of EMFs on Human Health:

The health effects of EMFs have been a subject of debate and research. While non-ionizing EMFs are generally considered safe at typical exposure levels encountered daily, there have been concerns and studies about their potential health impacts.
Interestingly, over the past 18 months, there have been considerable developments in EMF news.
  • The Children’s Health Defense group won a landmark case against the FCC. This case was a big deal because it showed no proof that the current regulations protect the public from EMF exposure.
  • The World Health Organization publicly classifies EMFs as a possible carcinogen.
  • The Environmental Working Group says that EMF exposure should be 200 to 400 times LOWER than the “whole-body exposure limit” set by the FCC in 1996.
Will the government finally take action to protect the public? Based on the planned rollout of satellites and 5G towers worldwide, it’s unlikely to happen anytime soon, so it’s up to us to stay informed.
When looking at a detailed breakdown of EMFs, here are some potential health concerns and ongoing research areas:
Radiofrequency (RF) Radiation: This is emitted by wireless devices like cell phones, Wi-Fi routers, and microwave ovens. Some studies have explored possible links between RF radiation and cancer.
Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) EMFs: These are produced by power lines, electrical appliances, and some electronic devices. There have been studies investigating potential associations between ELF EMFs and childhood leukemia.
Reducing electromagnetic field (EMF) exposure in the home and around children involves a combination of strategies, ranging from distancing from sources to utilizing protective materials. Here are some suggestions:

Identify Sources of EMF
  1. Wi-Fi Routers: Try to place Wi-Fi routers away from areas where children spend most of their time.
  2. Electrical Appliances: Keep electrical appliances like microwaves, televisions, and computers at a safe distance from children.
Limit Exposure
  1. Switch Off Devices: Turn off devices that aren’t in use. Many devices still emit EMFs when they are plugged in but not turned on.
  2. Airplane Mode: Use airplane mode on mobile devices when not needed for communication.
  3. Reduce screen time:  Especially before bedtime, as excessive screen time can disrupt sleep patterns.
  4. Minimize Electronic Devices in Bedrooms: Create a sleep-friendly environment by minimizing the number of electronic devices in your bedroom, including alarm clocks and TVs.
  5. Unplug Devices When Not in Use: Disconnect or unplug electrical devices, chargers, and appliances when they are not in use to reduce ELF-EMF exposure.
Increase Distance
  • Bed Placement: Keep beds away from walls that contain electrical wiring or outlets.
    1. Make sure no smart meters are outside on walls that share bedrooms. If so, invest in a smart meter shield.
  • Use Wired Connections: Use wired connections for the internet and phones instead of Wi-Fi or Bluetooth whenever possible. Use a Speakerphone when making phone calls on your cell phone to keep the device away from your head.
  • Distance from Power Lines: Avoid living or working very close to high-voltage power lines or transformers if possible.
  • Keep Devices at a Distance: Avoid placing laptops, tablets, and cell phones directly on your body. Use a table or desk instead.
Use Protective Materials
    1. Invest in wearable devices that protect you from EMF exposure. A personal favorite is the pendant from Harmoni.
    2. EMF Shields: There are EMF shields made explicitly for smartphones, laptops, and tablets.
  • Use Protective Paints: Some paints are designed to block EMF; you could consider using these in bedrooms or playrooms.
  • EMF Curtains or Fabrics: These can be used to shield against external EMF sources like nearby cell towers.
Educate and Create Awareness
  1. Teach Older Children: Make older children aware of the potential risks associated with prolonged EMF exposure.
  2. Family Rules: Set family rules for using devices like tablets and smartphones.
Professional Help
    1. EMF Meters: Use an EMF meter to measure levels in different parts of your home.
  • Consult Experts: Consider consulting with experts to evaluate the EMF levels in your home.
Natural Remedies
  1. Houseplants: While not scientifically verified to reduce EMF, having houseplants may have a beneficial effect on reducing indoor pollution and providing a more harmonious environment.
General Wellbeing
  1. Time Outdoors: Spending more time outdoors, away from electronic devices, can also reduce EMF exposure.
Educate Yourself: Stay informed about EMF safety guidelines and the latest research.
