What is EMF radiation protection and do you need it in your space?

How can you protect your space from excessive electromagnetic fields?

Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) are fields produced by the electrical charges our everyday devices generate.

From the smartphone in your hand all the way to the microwave in your kitchen, we’re exposed to varying levels of radiation on a daily basis.

While this is a normal and inevitable part of modern life, EMF exposure can become problematic if it is not managed well. It can lead to electromagnetic hypersensitivity and a range of other conditions like insomnia, tinnitus, anxiety, and headaches—to name just a few.

So, what can you do to reduce your EMF exposure?

Turn your devices off at night (this includes your Wi-Fi router)

Put your phone on airplane mode when you don’t need it

Don’t keep your devices in your pockets or on your body

Try and talk on your devices using the speaker feature

Keep digital devices out of the kitchen or the bedroom

If possible, refrain from using your microwave oven

Beyond this, you can also identify if the levels of radiation in your environment are high through electromagnetic field testing and by getting the support of a building biologist.

Can a building biologist help you achieve EMF radiation protection?

A building biologist is a professional who is qualified to assess and investigate the health of your home, and this includes your EMF exposure.

At Building Harmony, this is a service I provide through the use of industry-leading EMF detection technology and expertise, helping you identify sources of EMF and what you can do to manage this phenomenon.

While there are general steps you can take without an assessment, I help you dive into the heart of the issue and quantify whether you’re exposed to excessive levels of EMF and what you need to look out for if you are.

EMF FAQ

EMF FAQ

What are the health effects of high EMF exposure?

If you’re experiencing electromagnetic hypersensitivity, you may detect the following symptoms and conditions in the absence of other identifiable causes:

  • Learning, concentration and behavioural problems
  • Memory problems including word-finding issues (anomia) and dyslexia
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Sleep problems like insomnia
  • Eye issues
  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Muscle and joint pain, numbness, weakness, restless legs, spasms, tremors, pain in the jaw and teeth
  • Skin rashes, tingling, irritation, dry skin, lumps, pigmentation like brown sunspots, sensations similar to electric shocks, flushing and the skin feeling like its sunburnt
  • Sensitivity to chemicals, light, noise or smells
  • Tinnitus and hearing loss
  • Cardiopulmonary issues: heart palpitations, high blood pressure, arrhythmias and shortness of breath
  • An increased risk of brain tumours (gliomas and acoustic neuromas)

Which household devices emit EMF?

Plenty of everyday household devices like smartphones, Wi-Fi routers, microwaves, televisions, tablet devices, computers and many other forms of modern technology emit electromagnetic fields.

How can I test EMFs at home/work?

There are various, professional-grade EMF testing devices on the market that can produce accurate readings of your electromagnetic environment.

That said, it’s always a good idea to get professional support in this area because it’s usually much more affordable to hire a specialist with their own tools and who has the expertise to interpret the readings for you.

Are EMFs bad?

While EMFs aren’t bad and are a normal part of life in the modern world, very high exposure can lead to certain health issues. Realistically, we can’t eliminate these fields and the devices that produce them, but we can reduce and manage their impact on us.
