The World Health Organization (WHO) lists EMF radiation as a class 2B carcinogen.
EMF stands for Electric Magnetic Fields. These are invisible areas of energy (radiation) that are associated with the use of electrical power and various forms of natural and man-made lighting.
Our modern landscape is constantly exposing us to various strength electromagnetic fields.
Exposure to electromagnetic waves affect the human body in different ways.
Some common symptoms linked to exposure include:
The list goes on...
Although electromagnetic fields are unavoidable in today's wireless society, there are steps you can take to lessen the potential effects.
Below are some simple and effective ways to reduce your EMF exposure.
eat antioxidant rich foods
Consume foods and supplements high in antioxidants to help protect and repair damage from EMF.
Foods rich in antioxidants include deeply colored fruits and vegetables like blueberries, cherries, dark leafy greens, beets, cabbage, cocoa and many different herbs & spices such as turmeric, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, paprika, cardamom, cumin & rosemary.
Keep all electronics at a distance. 12" (or more) is a good rule of thumb to reduce levels of exposure.
Avoid carrying your cellphone in your pockets. This can cause low fertility. If you have to carry your phone on your body, put it in your back pocket. Otherwise, a bag is the safest option to minimize radiation.
Talk on your phone using speakerphone or wired headphones instead of holding it to your head or using bluetooth headsets.
Turn your Wi-Fi modem off and your cellphone to airplane mode at night.
Add an anti radiation sticker to your wireless devices.
Keep your laptop off your lap with a tray table.
CHANGE YOUR LIGHTING
If possible, avoid smart bulbs that use WiFi or Bluetooth.
Swap LED, halogen and fluorescent lightbulbs for incandescent lightbulbs. These bulbs produce very little EMF radiation. Natural light, however, is the safest bet.
A Himalayan salt lamp is a natural negative ionizer and can help offset the negative effects of EMFs.
ADD PLANTS TO YOUR HOME
Houseplants not only make your home look great, they also purify the air and absorb radiation.
Grounding is making direct contact with the earth.
Walk on the Earth barefoot as much as you can to receive the benefits of the Earth's negatively charged electrons.
You can also get a grounding mat to use in your home.
Shungite is a stone that protects against electromagnetic radiation and can restore the energetic balance of your biofield.
Ways to use shungite:
Shungite is one of the most powerful water purifiers. This water offers generous health benefits that have traditionally been used to ease physical ailments and inflammation.
To make shungite water, rinse the stones (without soap) to remove dust. Add 100 g of shungite per 1 liter of water and let it rest for 24-72 hours for optimal results.
TAKE A DETOXIFYING BATH
Taking an epsom salt bath for 25 minutes is one of the most effective methods to detox the body from pollutants and counter the effects of radiation.

Implementing some of the steps above into your daily life is a great way to reduce the harmful effects of EMFs. You can also take it one step further by setting aside time to completely disconnect from technology and reconnect with family, friends and nature.
