Detoxing from EMFs (Digital Detox)

Electromagnetic fields (EMF) are invisible forces that are emitted from wireless and electrical technologies all around us and can be harmful to your health and wellbeing. In fact, EMFs can cause symptoms of illness in infants, children and adults, particularly those who already experience low immunity.

An EMF detox is something everyone should consider. Using my Detox Your EMFs: The Ultimate 21-Day Digital Detox as guidance, my editorial team outlined the reasons why you should detox your EMFs, common EMF sources, EMF exposure symptoms and some simple detox tips that'll potentially see your health and wellbeing improve.

Reasons to Detox your EMF 

To detox your EMFs, it doesn't have to involve starvation, deprivation or a complete lifestyle change. It's about learning to live with technology with more informed balance and some healthy boundaries.

Reduce your electromagnetic fields and you may create an environment that supports improved health and wellness for the body, mind and soul. Body benefits include improved sleep quality, more energy and may lower the risks of breast and brain cancer.

Your mind will thank you for better memory, less brain fog and more mental clarity, while your soul will allow for more mindfulness, likeability and improved relationships. These are just some of the reasons to detox your EMFs.

Detoxing also allows our body’s natural detox system to “reboot”. Detoxing cleanses your body of irritants from the source, and helps you manage EMFs better when you’re exposed to them in the future.

About Digital Detoxing:

1. Ease into your Detox 

Do not to jump directly into a heavy detox regimen if you're not ready. In order to detox from EMFs properly and complete the process, make sure you have a clear plan on how you're going to make any changes. Plan ahead or it's possible you'll give up too soon and fail to experience its full potential and detox benefits.

If you're taking your detoxing seriously, and you should, it's important to realize that detoxing from technology is only one aspect of a healthy detox. An EMF Detox could be implemented alongside other types of detoxes.

Other harmful toxins can be found in several other areas of our lives, from the food you eat to the use of plastics and polluted outside air to the air inside your home.

2. Detoxing from Electromagnetic Fields

Make sure you're aware of the common sources of EMFs. At the very least, these more frequent exposures should be eliminated where possible.

Common sources of EMFs include:

  • WiFi
  • Bluetooth
  • Cell phones
  • Computers
  • Other wireless devices

Common symptoms from high EMF exposure:

  • Headaches
  • Disturbed sleep
  • Mind-fog
  • Digestive problems
  • Depression

Temporarily removing EMF sources from your life is a good way to detox your EMFs, but building habits to help you limit your exposure over the longterm is even better.

Most of us can't give up our modern technologies but we can take steps to drastically reduce our EMF exposures. 

3. EMF Protection - an Important Detox Tip

The best way to protect yourself from the harmful effects of EMFs is to reduce your exposure to its sources. There are some “EMF protection” products on the market, but the most effective way to improve your health is to limit your exposure.
