Have you been feeling under the weather lately? Lethargic, headache-y, and exhausted with no logical reasoning behind it?
If so, you may have gone to your doctor for solutions. What you received were more questions, because you aren’t sick from a bacteria or virus. Allergy testing revealed that you weren’t allergic to any of the common household allergens. So, what gives?
Your symptoms may arise from sensitivity to EMF or a prolonged EMF exposure. What is an EMF exposure, what symptoms can it cause, and how can you protect yourself? Here’s what you need to know.
If you haven’t been on the lookout for this latest potential health hazard, you may be wondering, “What’s EMF?” EMF is an abbreviation for electromagnetic fields (some may see it as “frequencies”). Every single object, from the planets and stars above to our own bodies and even man-made creations like phones and computers produces EMFs.
As we’ve grown more dependent on technology, more and more EMF-producing devices have made their way into our homes, causing sensitivities and potential damage to our bodies. And while these low-energy EMF aren’t nearly as damaging as outright radiation like X-rays or gamma rays, they can still cause problems.
Common EMF Symptoms
Like any other form of radiation, prolonged EMF exposure can cause negative symptoms to appear. How can you tell if you have a sensitivity to EMF, or that EMF exposure is causing your current sense of malaise? Some common symptoms reported by those who experience such reactions include, but are not limited to:
- Insomnia and fatigue
- Dizziness and nausea
- Difficulty concentrating, changes in mood, and depression
- Inexplicable muscle aches or changes in heart rhythm
Each of these symptoms could be a sign that you have a heightened sensitivity to EMF. This can also manifest as a severe case of tinnitus.
If you’ve gone to the doctor and no conventional treatments or explanations seem to work, these could be EMF symptoms rather than other forces at work.
How to Protect Yourself from EMF Exposure
Now that you understand what EMFs are and what symptoms they may cause, let’s talk about how to protect yourself. Some common methods of EMF protection include:
- Cutting off all electronics when they aren’t in use
- Placing EMF shielding around high-producing devices
- Regular testing of EMF in your home (more info on that at the link)
- Wearing clothing with anti-EMF properties
While none of these methods provide complete protection, they can prevent you from suffering the symptoms of acute EMF exposure.
