The earth produces electromagnetic fields, and the atmosphere generates electromagnetic fields as well. EMFs are everywhere. We have electromagnetic fields which occur naturally in our bodies. But due to the prevalence of electronic gadgets and devices, we are constantly exposed to EMFs, and this is no longer a good thing. EMFs always surround us, with all the devices that emit electromagnetic fields in our homes, offices, and even outside, and it may already be affecting our bodily functions. If you are feeling weak and exhausted, stressed, anxious, or fatigued, you could be experiencing the symptoms of overexposure to electromagnetic fields. But there are ways to combat this. Here are the simple and easy things you can do to reduce your exposure to EMFs.
Be cautious with how you use your cell phone
We have all heard of cell phone radiation, and it’s a real thing. It’s an even greater cause for concern today because of how we continuously use our cell phones. We use our cell phones for placing calls, granted, but we also use them to listen to music, watch videos, and the like. If you are worried about EMFs, be cautious about how you use your cell phone. You can start with placing it on speaker mode when you have to make a call. Today’s cell phone speakers are quite sensitive, so it’s not a problem to put it on its speaker function. Alternatively, you can make use of a headset. Perhaps you can also reduce your exposure by sending a text rather than calling.
Another thing: don’t place your cell phone right next to your body. That means not putting it in your trouser pockets or on your shirtfront pocket. If you have no other choice but to carry your cell phone near your body, you should put it in airplane mode.
Be careful with your WiFi
WiFi has undoubtedly changed our lives for the better, especially since we can now access the Internet at any time without worrying about wires all over the place. But you should know that WiFi is also one great contributor to EMF exposure, especially if you have it turned on 24 hours a day.
One simple and easy way you can deal with WiFi is this: turn it off when you are not using it. Better still, turn it off at night just before you go to sleep. Opt for a WiFi router which has an ‘on/off’ function, or you can opt for a wired connection.
Be wary of your smart meter
Another source of electromagnetic fields in your home would be your smart meter, which is an electronic gadget or device which can record your consumption of electrical energy at frequent time intervals, and it is a highly useful gadget. But smart meters are continually communicating with your utility system via signals, and these signals can lead to higher levels of EMFs. You can invest in a manual meter from your utility company so that you can still monitor your electrical consumption without putting yourself and your family at risk.
You can also take advantage of products such as EMF protection products which are built and designed to protect you from constant EMF exposure. They come as jewellery such as pendants, but they can also come as shields and phone chips. When it comes to your health, it’s always better to be safe than sorry, after all.
