As you are reading this blog post you are getting zapped. Hate to be a Debbie Downer here…but things will look up near the end of this post! I feel that this is such an important topic to discuss because EMF exposure can hurt your health but you can take action to defend exposure. 

I had no idea what EMFs were until 6 months ago when I dove into learning about 5G. There is SO MUCH INFORMATION available to us but I am going to give you the info in a digestible way. 

So…wtf are EMFs? 

EMFs (electromagnetic radiation or frequency), simply put, are invisible lines of energy that are put out by an electrical or wireless source. They can be beneficial, harmless or extremely dangerous to humans, depending on the source, level of radiation, and duration of exposure.

Don’t be fooled by low frequencies either. Both low and high frequencies can be dangerous. Low would be classified as appliances or electricity and high would be things like radio frequency (RDR or RF) from wireless devices.

Dangers of exposure

Most EMFs are harmful to our health. We are surrounded by man-made invisible radiation every single day. Well known culprits include public wifi, Bluetooth, radio, cell phones, computers, microwaves and cell phone towers (ahem, 5G).

On a cellular level, EMFs remove ions from our cells and interfere with the metabolism within those cells. Recent studies show direct links between EMF exposure and brain cancer, MS, neurological diseases and nutritional deficiencies such as Alzheimer’s, depression, schizophrenia, MS, and more. Electrical currents from A/C power outlets) create biological currents that affect our brain and nervous systems resulting in issues such as brain fog, fatigue, and low energy. Before learning about EMFs, I thought it was weird that when the microwave was running, I could feel little zaps in my head…now I know why. Some people are more sensitive than others but I have met other people who experience this as well. I’m pleased to tell you that I haven’t used my microwave in months and encourage you to do the same.

Symptoms of overexposure include, but are not limited to:

  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Sleep issues
  • Weight gain
  • Digestive disorders
  • Immune disorders
  • Anxiety
  • Adrenal fatigue
  • Depression
  • Cancer
  • Brain fog
  • ADHD

…NO THANK YOU. 

EMF exposure does not act alone when it comes to these symptoms since they are almost always in cahoots with your body having too much involvement with GMOs, pollution, pesticides, toxic tap water, low air quality and processed foods. They are a silent but evil combination.

5 Ways to Protect Yourself

Enough of the bad news…now on to how to say ‘fuck no’ to EMFs. Fortunately, there are some amazing companies out there that have been making it their mission come up with products and services to shield and protect us from EMFs. Here is a list of everything I am using and doing to shield myself – use it as a guide if you’re looking for a place to start!

  1. BE AWARE of using your phone up to your ear/head, and really anywhere up to your body. Side note: did you ever hear advice NOT to put your phone in your sports bra/pockets while exercising? I did too, and some people say it’s a myth that the radiation causes issues, some don’t…however current science points to the fact that it DOES negatively affect our health. Always use airplane mode when you can and do not sleep next to your phone. You can hear your alarm from the kitchen – I promise! Take it from the gal who slept with her phone 2 feet away for years. Be mindful when you’re talking on the phone, too. Use headphones or put your phone on speaker instead of holding it to your head.
  2. Turn your wi-fi off at night. You can even put an outlet timer on and have it go off automatically.
  3. Make sure that you do not have a smart meter near your home. It’s actually illegal.
  4. Use a shield when using your laptop. I have been using the laptop shield from Defendershield for two months and absolutely love it. It’s comfortable to use on my lap and I don’t have to worry as much about nasty radiation near my lady parts.
  5. Use a phone case that shields EMFs and/or use a bag that defends you while your phone is inside. I’ve been wearing this fanny pack – yeah I said FANNY PACK (!!) while hiking and it’s so comfortable. No more sticking my phone in my pocket.
  6. Wear blue light blocking glasses while you’re working, at your computer, or using your phone. This pair has daytime and night-time lenses in 1. I use the yellow tint during the day and snap on the orange tinted lenses at night if I am laying in bed on my phone – ya know you do it too!

If you want to pick up any Defendershield products, they are offering All Gussied Up readers 20% off your order with code LYNN20.
