Becoming Sensitive to EMF? 22 Tips for Reducing EMF in your Home and Office
Electrosensitivity (ES or EHS) usually happens gradually.
Most ES’s start as healthy working citizens and through chronic and acute exposures to electric radiation, they became electrically sensitive with little warning. Their message: it could be you next. Once you become sensitive, it’s tough to find a place to live or work without feeling terrible.
Symptoms include headaches, burning sensations, tingling, debilitating (severe) “brain fog, heart arrhythmia’s, migraines, severe depression, chronic insomnia) to even life-threatening and seizures, heart attacks).
If you are Electrically Sensitive or suspect that you may be, consider multi-layer protection and take a look at some of the Home and Room Protection solutions especially the Satic units for dealing with the Dirty Electricity and issues discussed in item #10.
- PARTNER WITH NATURE: Rise with the sun and go to bed early. This way you make maximum use of daylight and can avoid using artificial lighting whenever possible. Go outside as often as possible! When you are outside, your energy field has a chance to expand, and cleanse from built up electronic energies. You might even schedule a once a day time to be outside. If you have a dog, you can make sure you take a daily walk. Even if you don’t have a dog, you can take yourself for a walk!
- GO MANUAL VS DIGITAL: Do things manually if there’s a way – don’t use electricity as a matter of convenience or to save time. Use a manual juicer or “bike blender”; use a broom/mop instead of a vacuum cleaner. Rake your leaves vs. using a leaf blower.
- Turn off off WiFi at night. Get an electronic plug-in timer that can plug into a wall socketl. Then you plug it in the WiFi unit. Plug the WiFi unit into the wall. Then set the time on the timer to go off at bedtime and come on in the morning. If you have a power outage you will have to reset your timer.
- If you are extremely sensitive, hardwire your electronics instead of using WiFi.
- Bedrooms: purge them of electronics. If you need a plug-in alarm clock, place it at least 5 feet from the bed, and remove any cell phones, laptops, tablets, etc. from your bedroom. If you are exceptionally sensitive, you could unplug you bedside lamp just before you go to sleep (or add a Steterizer Filter)- or have a Satic Whole Home Line conditioner installed so that the electrical wiring in your home has minimal EMF coming out of it.
- CHOOSE NON-WIFI AREAS: Avoid areas with wireless networking (WiFi) – internet cafes, airports, etc. sources: However, since this is basically impossible these days, we recommend wearing a personal energy protection, such as the BioElectric Shield to protect you at all times.
- KEEP YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM STRONG: Choose a nutrient-rich organic diet, 8 hours of sleep, moderate exercise, and plenty of fresh air and sun. Wearing a BioElectric Shield will help boost your immune system.
- GROUND LAPTOPS AND COMPUTERS: This reduces the electricity running through your body when touching them. See Video of How to do this
- ELIMINATE OR PLACE EMF PROTECTION ON CORDLESS DECT PHONES AND BABY MONITORS: All cordless technology emits a constant electromagnetic signal even when not in use. If you must use them, then use EMF protection on both phone and base and on the monitors.
- LIMIT THE DURATION OF YOUR CELL PHONE AND SMART PHONE CALLS: Save cell phones for emergencies and use land lines whenever possible. Make sure cell phones are turned off when not in use, and avoid using them inside a car. When you do use cell phones, use speaker phone and appropriate shielding devices and keep more than 2 feet from your body when not in use. Read our Ultimate Cell phone Safety Tips
- SMART METERS: Don’t let them be installed, or if it’s too late, try to get removed and go back to the analog meters. If this isn’t possible, place a Room Shield on the inside wall across from the outside wall where the Smart Meter is installed. Read why…
- ELIMINATE DIRTY ELECTRICITY FROM ELECTRONICS OR HOME WIRING: Dirty electricity from electronics or appliances can be greatly reduced by adding Stetzerizer Filters. To reduce dirty electricity in your home’s wiring install either the Whole Home Satic Unit or Portable Satic Line Conditioner Plugs.
- PRACTICE A CHEMICAL-FREE LIFESTYLE: When you reduce your total body burden of toxins by replacing all personal care and home-cleaning products with chemical free versions, wear organic clothing, use organic bedding, you make it easier for your immune system to deal with the toxins including EMF that are unavoidable. In your own home, you have a choice what to clean with – and it can be non-toxic!
- WEAR SHOES WITH A SOLE MADE FROM NATURAL MATERIALS: (like undyed leather), walk barefoot on the beach or earth, or hug a tree – these all may help you release excess EMFs into the earth and ground your body.
- SMALL APPLIANCES:
- Unplug electrical appliances when not in use.
- Avoid using small appliances like hair dryers, microwave ovens, electric toothbrushes, electric blankets, heating pads, baby monitors, and other electric products. You may want to use a toaster oven rather than the large regular oven when possible.
- Avoid appliances with variable speeds: This includes fans, heaters, front-loading washing machines and some furnaces.
- “SMART”APPLIANCES: Many, if not all, appliances made since 2009 have some kind of computerized technology and is constantly
putting out EMF. If you have a choice, chose “dumb” appliances. You can help reduce the EMF in kitchens, media rooms, bedrooms etc by using a Room Shield
- REPLACE DIMMER SWITCHES WITH REGULAR SWITCHES: This will eliminate high-frequency radiation, or “dirty electricity” which can be hidden in the dimmer switch.
- LIGHTING – AVOID LOW-VOLTAGE HALOGEN AND FLOURESCENT LIGHTING (including the currently popular energy-efficient compact fluorescent lighting). Fluorescent lighting has been shown to cause migraines and contains mercury, which is a hazardous material that can create huge health and environmental problems. There is one company who makes a lead shielded light and a non-flicker bulb – Ott Technology.
- USE LCD COMPUTERS AND TV SCREENS- AVOID PLASMA TV’S. Keep computer use to a minimum; keep unplugged when not in use.
- BUYING OR BUILDING A NEW HOME? If you are currently buying or building your own home, make sure you choose a home at least 5 miles from the nearest microwave or cell phone tower, high tension power line, or other radio and TV transmitters. Check for future cell tower sites as well as existing ones. Design with as much natural lighting as possible so that you are less dependent on artificial lighting. For added protection against radio and cell phone waves, use low-e coatings on windows.
- WHERE IS YOUR BREAKER BOX OR SOLAR INVERTER? Locate the electrical power panel, solar inverters (if you are using active solar), clothes dryer, hot water heater, and any other large electric appliance at least 20 feet from living/sleeping areas. The routing of any dedicated circuits for computer and other electronics should be kept away from critical areas like the bedroom. Install a Satic Whole Home Unit. Provide a dedicated circuit for the refrigerator so that you can turn off other breakers at night if desired, except for the fridge. You can also hang a room Shield in the room where your power panel or Solar inverters are stored.
- REDUCE YOUR TIME ONLINE: Your body will appreciate if if you give yourself some time offline. Go for a walk, read a book play games – remember some of the things you enjoyed BE (before internet)
- WHAT IS YOUR EMF EXPOSURE LEVEL? You may not be aware of how much EMF you are being exposed to. You can take a free EMF Protection quiz to find out. At the end of the quiz, follow the link to get a free recommendation for what level of protection would fit best for you exposure level.
