EMF Protection 101. Proven Safe and Effective Electromagnetic Radiation Mitigation

EMF Protection Basics 

When It Comes to EMF, Distance Is Your Friend!

The way I like to visualize EMFs is similar to the smoke plume coming form the end of a cigarette.  It's dense right at tip--then you can watch as it "spreads out" in the air, getting lighter and lighter- but filling more and more space.  Finally it floats so far away, you might not even be able to detect it all.

This also applies to the sources of EMF  - whether your cell phone, laptop, WiFi router, or Smart speaker- The farther away you are from the source, the less EMF you are being exposed to. Of course, how far you need to be from the source for safety all depends on how strong the EMF is. 

The first time I used the "Distance Is Your Friend" idea was on a video in 2008.  It's really caught on because it cements the concept of how EMF dissipates with distance so beautifully. There's actually a law in science that works to explain how much the EMF lessens as you get away from it.

That being said, try to be aware of the EMF sources closest to you

As technology evolves, more and more products are utilizing non-ionizing radio frequencies and emitting EMF radiation, especially when it comes to communication and more notably, convenience. First, we had microwave ovens, then came cell phones and now we have wireless communication spewing in, out, and around every smartphone, WiFi, smart meter, smart TV, smart ovens, smart so-many-things. Plus, a wide variety of Bluetooth and WiFi spouting toys and smart home gadgets from wearables to security cams and climate controllers. All these connected devices are called The Internet of Things (IoT).

The amount of EMF around us is overwhelming! But the good news is you have the power to control most of the sources that are affecting you the most! Locate and turn off the EMF sources in your space and make your home a low-EMF sanctuary! 

We have wealth of tips and tricks to mitigate and create distance between you and EMF exposure. Watch our videos. We tote a meter around to show what an EMF "looks" like and offer a solution to avoiding RF radiation we encounter. The next section has more practical tips but here are 5 interesting ones now: 

If Distance Is Your Friend, an EMF Meter Is Your Best Friend! Get a Meter to See and Hear the Invisible EMFs! 

EMF radiation meters are a great place to begin mindfulness. I recommend investing in one if you are beginning your journey to keep you and your family safe from EMF. If it's not in the budget, find a few friends or neighbors to go in on it with you and pass it around when you need to find hidden sources of EMF.

    How Do WE Measure or Detect EMF?

    All electromagnetic fields are measured in terms of power density. Think about  power density as representing the energy over the surface area.  When you see me using a meter to detect the invisible  EMF being emitted from a wireless device,the meter is giving a read out of the level of the energy over a certain area--The power density levels will be strongest directly over the surface area of the antenna and then as the EMF energy is detected further and further and further away from the antenna, the strength of the energy dissipates as the energy "spreads out" and eventually lessens enough that  it can't be detected at all.

    The Inverse Square Law Is a Lovely Scientific Fact

    It's called the  inverse-square law and it states that a physical quantity is inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the source.  What that means to you and me is this: If you double the distance from your device's wireless transmitter or antenna, you'll be exposed to 75% less radiation as the signal dissipates. Keep in mind, the opposite is true as well - exposure increases quickly with proximity.

    How Much EMF Is Safe?

    If you're sensitive, the less the better. If you're NOT sensitive, the less the better! The Biointiative Report recommended a safety level of .0003 microwatt/cm2. The  Institute of Building Biology has these guidelines for sleeping areas  You can see in our videos, the measurements from my test meters are much higher. I test everywhere I go and very rarely do I even find levels as low as .1. Most houses have 2 or 3 times that much when I set my meter to the max level and get ambient energy readings. When we measure the peak wave, or maximum peak, near the wireless energy source, the levels go much higher which is why the level I advise below is with the hope that people keep their distance from wireless devices.

    What Can I Do About It?

    Practically speaking avoidance and distance are the keys for the time being. The top 15 easy ways to creating less interaction with RF are in the tips above.  You can also become active in any of the many activists' groups. 

    We hope you'll share our tips and this wireless energy guide and begin another person on the journey to Tech Wellness.

    The 15 Best Ways to Protect You and Your Family From Wireless EMF Radiation

    There are easy and effective things you can do to enjoy wireless technology, yet still be mindful of your health and create a safer and environment.

    1. Turn devices OFF or put them in Airplane Mode whenever you can.

    Cell phones, tablets, laptops, and smartphones are sending or receiving wireless energy even when you're not using them.  Control the unnecessary RF radiation by simply powering off. Make sure Bluetooth and WiFi are disabled too.

     

    2. Don't carry your cell phone in your hand or your pocket  (or your bra) when it's on. 

    There's plume of RF radiation all around your device and it dissipates the further it gets from the device. Consider a purse or man-bag or a cell phone case with straps or a simple phone leash so you can either dangle it from your wrist or keep it long so it stays away from your tummy and hips--we don't want RF energy there!!

     IF "ANTI RADIATION PHONE CASES" ACTUALLY WORKED, WE WOULD OFFER THEM AT TECH WELLNESS.

    EMF radiation protection that is guaranteed come only with a Faraday bag that completely blocks signal. Another good idea is to distance yourself from your device.  Like smoke from a cigarette, RF radiation dissipates as it gets further and further from the antenna.  Carry your phone away from you.

    3. If you hold your phone to Facetime, Zoom, watch videos, or scroll social media - Try a phone stand instead.

    Your body is safer when the wireless energy from your smartphone is at least 8 inches from you.  Try this - it's great for preventing Tech Neck as well.

    4. Eliminate WiFi and use internet via a wired connection. 

    Instead of a wireless mouse, use a wired mouse. Instead of a wireless keyboard, wse a wired keyboard. Hardwired connections eliminate RF energy from wireless energy. A bonus is that your internet is faster and more secure.  It's great because all this hard wiring allows you to turn blue-tooth and WiFi off.  Make sure you toggle off the Bluetooth setting and the WiFi settings on your laptop or device. The result: almost no RF radiation! Use this to assure no electro-smog which can occur with some cabling or check out our favorites all in one bundle in our Hard Wire Kit!


     

    5. If you're home just can't exist without WiFi, turn it off whenever you can.

    Especially at night! Any time the WiFi router is off, it's not sending a signal so there's no RF radiation. Turn it off using a low-tech remote switch so you don't have to come in close contact with the RF energy from the router. You can turn the router off anytime and turn it back on when you need it.

    6. Keep your computer and cell phone out of all sleeping areas. 

    Being clear of all EMF radiation makes for a lovely nights rest for you and your family.  Instead of awaking to the sounds of your smartphone, we found a lovely EMF free alternative.

     

    7. Find the hidden sources of EMF and disable WiFi and Bluetooth

    Here are a few places to look: 

    • WiFi
    • Printers
    • Laptops
    • Tablets
    • Phones
    • Apple Watch or fitness trackers
    • Smart appliances
    • Smart Meter 
    • Bluetooth headphones
    • Home security system 
    • Baby monitor 
    • Smart TVs

     

    8. Remove your Smart Meter. 

    It's actually a very powerful WiFi router that's consistently pulsing EMF's all day and all night. It could be the strongest EMF source in your home. Call your power company and ask them to switch it out to a non-wireless analog or digital meter. We did this and we noticed a big difference! If you can't remove it, try to cover it with this Smart Meter cover to block up to 98% of the RF.


    9. Prioritize a safe baby monitor

     Turn off the baby monitor anytime you're not using it AND make sure it's at least 15 feet from you and your baby. Try this no-EMF radiation baby monitor set-up.

    10. Try a stylus

    To keep your hands and fingers from being exposed to wireless energy directly, use a stylus when texting or emailing from your device. Too much? Compose in airplane mode: then send when the device is on or enabled.

    stylus what is it

      

    11. Try to avoid using a phone or computer on a plane, in a car, or on a train.

    The wireless radiation increases as the device searches for the signal. It can become quite high. Not good for you or anyone around you. You can watch this video demonstrating the magnification of RF radiation when WiFi is accessed in a plane.


    12. Find out where they keep the WiFi router when you're choosing your flight seat.

    Choose a seat as far from it as you can to distance yourself from wireless EMF.

    13. A laptop is not for your lap! 

    Even with no WiFi or Bluetooth connection, there are magnetic EMF's oozing from it. At the very least use a thick 12" pillow. Best is on the desk a good 2' from your tummy with a wired mouse and keyboard attached to the laptop. Check out a great folding desk option here!

    where should your laptop be

     

    14. Ditch the AirPods or wireless headphones for a wired option (AirTube Technology is preferred!) 

    The tube of air acts as a buffer between the RF energy coming from the cell phone or smartphone and makes sure none of it gets to your head. Here's the one we use. It works beautifully, plus has a nice long wire for more distance from our device.

    15. Be WiFi, cell phone, and Bluetooth aware

    Not just in your home, but out and about as well. If you see the flashing lights of a WiFi router, know that you're being exposed to less as you move further away. Wifi router boxes or low power Wifi routers can help reduce some of the WiFi radiation in your home or office environment.

    What I DO NOT Recommend To Protect You From EMF Radiation

    I know, the world of EMF Protection is confusing! And now more than ever there are a TON of "EMF Protection" companies trying to sell you their product - but what really works and what doesn't?

    My EMF Journey began long ago.  I've seen all manner of chips, shields, stickers and fabrics along the way that claimed to mitigate EMF and purchased dozens of products to try.

    There are materials that do in-fact block EMF- they block the natural EMF from the earth as well as the chaotic man-made EMF that leads to the negative health effects.  But most materials don't block all EMF and when all the wireless RF/EMF is blocked, it's impossible to get a signal to or from the device.

    Harmonizers that claim to be EMF protection don't have compelling published peer-reviewed studies to prove their efficacy, though they may enhance the environment.

    Both the harmonizer and EMF protection/shielding market's are growing. If you're looking to block EMF or shield your home or body from EMF you really must approach harmonizers and shielding with caution.

    You'll find the details as well as recommendations for using shielding properly in our article, Does EMF Protection Work? There's also a research study that details the how partial shielding from clothing as well as cases can increase EMF with reflection and hot spots.

    EMF Protection That Isn't Backed by Science:  

    • Anti-Radiation Phone Cases or Device Cases - These can make the radiation worse by magnifying it on the edges of what the case is covering.  Covering the front of the case does not protect you from the radiation coming from all sides and TOP of the phone.
    • Laptop Shields - As with phone cases, the edge of the laptop shield is oozing EMF.  Add to that, in order for the shield to protect your lap, which is usually your legs, the radiation is multiplied on the top of the shield. That means more radiation to your hands, tummy, chest, and face.
    • Anti-Radiation or Shielding Clothing - Clothing with metallic fibers can keep direct radiation exposure off the area that it's covering-but it can also magnify that radiation to other parts of your body in what the new research calls Hot Spots.  Also, we really aren't sure about the health mechanism of EMF exposure. Just because one part of you is covered, what's happening to the rest of you?  Building Biologist Bill Cadwallader puts it this way: "Which body part isn't important to you?"
    • Shungite - It pains us to see that Shungite is the number one term that comes up when you Google EMF Protection.  Shungite is cool and it is beautiful. It's a black stone that was discovered in Karelia Russia and that's why you may see people talk about only trusting Kareilian Shungite.  The trouble is that although  Shungite does have electrical conductive properties because it actually has carbon and (sometimes) fullerene content. As a matter of fact,  It has been confirmed to have shielding capabilities from 10-30GHz, as well as attenuating 50Hz electric fields (Mosin and Ignatov, 2013)  THE problem with using it as shielding is that you have to have a lot of it, not just a chunk of it sitting on a table. Shungite can have shielding capabilities IF it COVERED an entire wall or created a large barrier between you and the wireless antenna or transmitter. Shungite, and any crystal by the way, does NOT attract or diffuse EMF.
    We also have not found discs for phones or necklaces for wireless energy proven to do anything.
    So stay away from those. We don’t recommend “shielding” gadgets like a microwave cover, because they cannot possibly block all of the EMF.  And as far a shielding for your home or personal space, shielding properly is a tricky endeavor. We advise hiring an EMF professional who is an electrician or engineer to help mitigate home EMF exposure. Check our our listing of experts in our Consultants section of Tech Wellness. And, for just what it takes to become "certified" to be an EMF expert, we've got that information too.
