Reduce your EMF exposure

A few tips on your reducing EMF exposures. For even more tips see my book chapter on “Little things you can do yourself to reduce EMF

  • Minimize Wireless Device Use: Limit cell phone use. Keep your cell phone usage to a minimum and avoid carrying it directly on your body. Use speakerphone or wired headphones for calls.
  • Reduce Wi-Fi exposure: Turn off Wi-Fi when not in use or use wired connections whenever possible. If Wi-Fi is necessary, keep the router away from frequently occupied areas.
  • Use airplane mode: Put your wireless devices, such as phones and tablets, in airplane mode when not actively using the internet or making calls.
  • Create EMF-Free Zones: Create a sleep sanctuary: Keep your bedroom free from electronic devices. Avoid placing alarm clocks, phones, or other electronic gadgets near your bed.
  • Designate device-free areas: Establish specific areas in your home where you limit or avoid using wireless devices, such as dining areas or relaxation spaces.
  • Optimize Device Placement: Keep a distance: Maintain a distance from devices emitting EMFs, such as laptops, tablets, and gaming consoles. Use a desk or table instead of placing them on your lap.
  •  Avoid prolonged close contact: Avoid spending time near high EMF sources, such as power transformers, electrical panels, or large appliances.
  • Use Wired Connections: Choose wired alternatives. Whenever possible, opt for wired connections instead of wireless. For example, use wired internet connections, headphones, or Ethernet cables instead of Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.
  • Consider EMF-Reducing Accessories: Use EMF-shielding products: Consider using EMF-shielding accessories, such as phone cases or laptop shields, which can reduce EMF exposure when devices are in use.
  • Conduct a Home Audit. Hire a professional: Consider engaging an EMF specialist to audit your home or workplace, identify EMF sources, and provide recommendations for reducing exposure.
  • Mitigate EMF sources: Address any wiring errors or EMF hotspots discovered during the audit and follow the recommendations provided to minimize exposure.
