Should You Start Using EMF Blockers and EMF Protection?

Our daily exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) has increased drastically over the past three decades. Our dependence on electrically powered devices has sparked widespread concern and controversy. Understanding the nature and potential side effects of EMF exposure is essential for making informed decisions about how to mitigate exposure to potentially harmful man-made radiation.


What are EMFs?

EMFs are an invisible form of radiation that emanate from both natural and man-made sources. They are typically categorized into two types: Ionizing and Non-ionizing.

Ionizing frequencies, such as X-rays and gamma rays, are considered high-level radiation which cause cellular and DNA damage upon exposure. These frequencies are widely recognized as harmful to the human body. Even small levels of exposure can be extremely detrimental to our health.

Non-ionizing frequencies include most of the electromagnetic spectrum, and are conventionally considered unharmful to humans due to their low frequencies. Non-ionizing frequencies such as microwaves (MV), ultraviolet (UV), infrared (IR), radio frequencies (RF), and visible light are on the lower end of the energy spectrum. Although non-ionizing frequencies are often advertised as safe for human exposure, chronic exposure to non-ionizing frequencies may have damaging effects on the human body.

Devices Which Emit EMFs

Common devices that emit EMFs include mobile phones, tablets, computers, smartwatches, televisions, microwave ovens, power lines, broadcast towers, medical devices, LED lights, and various electrically powered devices. Devices that rely on Wi-Fi and Bluetooth transmitters like smartphones and laptops are especially concerning due to constant close contact. Since these devices are practically inescapable, it’s a good idea to limit the use of devices or use forms of EMF protection and EMF blockers to avoid any potential health detriments (explained below).

The Effect of EMFs on Our Bodies

Many experts question the necessity for EMF protection and EMF blockers. Elon Musk, for example, displayed his lack of concern for EMF exposure when he said that he could, “strap a helmet of cell phones…around [his] head and around [his] nuts, and [he] would not worry”.

In a 2014 PubMed study researchers compared two groups of sperm, one in a regular incubator and another in an incubator placed next to a cell bluetooth and wifi enabled phone for five hours. The sperm in the incubator with the cell phone experienced significantly more DNA damage than the group in the regular incubator. "A correlation exists between mobile phone radiation exposure, DNA–fragmentation level and decreased sperm motility”, they concluded. According to a 2021 PubMed study, researchers found a direct correlation between EMFs, particularly RF emitted by cell phones, and lower testosterone in men. They also found that longer duration of EMF exposure from cell phones resulted in more drastic negative impacts in both humans and animals. These studies suggest that excessive exposure to unnatural EMF producing devices with bluetooth transmitters may have adverse effects on humans, and particularly on reproductive health.

Functional Patterns seeks to improve human movement, as well as the human lifestyle. A major component of this involves living in accordance with natural law. The modern era is the first time in history that humans have been excessively exposed to low-ionizing man-made EMF via the invention of devices with wireless connection and bluetooth transmitters. High levels of exposure to these forms of radiation is unnatural and has already proven to cause significant negative effects on the human body.

How to protect against EMF exposure through EMF blockers

While it is still not definitive whether EMF exposure from devices and bluetooth transmitters is damaging to humans, we have never experienced this level of EMF exposure before in history. We advise exercising caution now rather than bear potential negative effects down the line. Two of the simplest and cost effective ways to protect yourself from EMF exposure include reducing exposure to radiation emitted by devices and using EMF blockers. Setting our devices to airplane mode when we aren’t using them can be a great strategy for reducing exposure to radio waves. Make sure to set your phone to airplane mode when it is in your pockets or close to reproductive organs. Additionally, EMF blocker clothing can help protect your body when exposed to higher levels of EMF such as when flying on airplanes. Various companies sell Anti-EMF shirts, hats, underwear, etc which have been proven to protect against EMFs. There are several other methods of protecting against EMFs, but these are one way to start.

We understand that you can’t always avoid EMF’s, as most jobs are dependent on the utilization of computers and wifi connection. In some cases, you may live near transmission towers and many power lines, which makes it very difficult to limit constant exposure. For those interested in reducing EMF exposure, here is a list of activities and practices you might consider implementing in your life:

  1. Spend More Time Outdoors: Nature offers low-EMF environments. Activities like hiking, gardening, or simply walking in a park can reduce your exposure to artificial EMFs.
  2. Read Physical Books: Instead of using e-readers or tablets, choose physical books or audiobooks on devices not held on your body.
  3. Practice Doing Nothing: Akin to meditation, doing nothing can help reset your brain and body.
  4. Limit Use of Wireless Devices: Chronic, incessant exposure can be very damaging. Instead, allocate specific times to check emails or messages rather than constantly being connected to a smartphone or tablet. 
  5. Explore Non-Digital Learning: Attend workshops, classes, or seminars that focus on skills or knowledge that can be gained without digital aids.
  6. Create a Tech-Free Zone: Designate areas in your home, such as the bedroom or dining room, where electronic devices are not allowed, promoting a more peaceful and EMF-free environment.
  7. Practice Analog Creativity: Take up journaling, sketching, or other creative outlets that don't require digital devices, encouraging relaxation and restoration.

In conclusion, the modern era introduces unprecedented low-ionizing man-made EMF exposure. Practicing caution and implementing methods of EMF protection is advisable and can help mitigate long-term negative health impacts.
