Suffering From Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity? What Precautions Should You Take?

If you've recently begun to attribute your headaches, fatigue, muscle aches, or strange skin sensations to a condition called electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EMH), you may be wondering how you can reduce the effects of ever-present electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) on your body without compromising your lifestyle. Fortunately, there are some modifications you can make to your home and car that should significantly reduce the number of EMFs surrounding you at any given time, lessening your symptoms and allowing you to live a more normal lifestyle. Read on to learn more about how you can apply radiation shielding to the areas in which you spend the most time.

What are the benefits to installing radiation shielding in your home?

With the regular construction of new cellular towers in even rural areas, installing radiation or nuclear shielding within your home can be beneficial even for those who don't suffer from EMH. Because there have been no long-term studies about the effects of high levels of EMFs on the human body, avoiding as many EMFs as you can is generally the safest option for your long-term health. If you'd like a fairly low-effort way to refract or reflect EMFs away from your home, painting a radiation-resistant paint onto your siding or a sealant onto your roof should block these EMFs just as sunscreen blocks harmful ultraviolet rays from your skin.

Another option is installing EMF shielding film over the windows in your home. Because clear glass windows can often act as easy conduits for EMFs, focusing your attention on these areas can give you the most bang for your buck when it comes to protecting yourself and your family within your home. 

Should you install radiation shielding in your vehicle?

Although the radiation shielding paints and materials used for home construction and remodeling often aren't appropriate for vehicle application, there are some steps you can take to reduce the EMFs bombarding your vehicle as you commute to work, to go to the grocery store, or just to visit family members. Installing a clear protective window film (similar to the film you can install on your home's windows) should help minimize the EMFs passing through your vehicle's clear windows. If you spend your commute driving beneath several large cell towers or other sources of high EMF radiation, a Faraday canopy or even chain mail can keep these frequencies away from your body while you're in a high-exposure area.
