Too much EMF Radiation Exposure? Symptoms and Solutions

Share Article

Believe it or not, we are all constantly surrounded and exposed to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) on a daily basis from various sources, including mobile phones, computers, wi-fi routers, and power lines. While low levels of EMF exposure are not considered harmful, prolonged exposure to high levels of EMFs can result in a range of symptoms and potential health risks. In this blog post, we’ll explore the symptoms of excess EMF radiation exposure and the potential causes of Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Syndrome (EHS).

According to a variety of studies including that endorsed by the WHO, prolonged exposure to high levels of EMF radiation can cause a range of symptoms that may vary between individuals. 


  1. Headaches and migraines
  2. Fatigue and weakness
  3. Dizziness
  4. Insomnia or difficulty sleeping
  5. Nausea
  6. Tingling or burning sensations in the skin
  7. Difficulty concentrating
  8. Memory loss
  9. Anxiety and depression
  10. Eye strain and dryness
  11. Tinnitus (ringing in the ear)
  12. Heart palpitations

Although these symptoms are very similar to common health issues, if you experience frequent or severe symptoms, they could be caused by EMF radiation exposure. In such cases, it’s always advisable to consult a medical professional.

Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Syndrome (EHS):

Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Syndrome (EHS) is a condition where individuals experience a range of symptoms related to EMF radiation exposure. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), EHS is not a recognized medical diagnosis, yet, many individuals have reported suffering from this condition. Read more here

EHS symptoms commonly reported include headaches, body pain, lethargy, tinnitus (ringing in the ear), nausea, a burning sensation, heart arrhythmia, and cognitive problems.

Potential Causes of EHS:

The exact causes of EHS are not yet fully understood. However, scientists suggest that the symptoms may be caused by a combination of environmental, genetic, and psychological factors. 

Some potential causes and triggers of EHS include:

  1. Overexposure to EMF radiation
  2. Environmental toxins and pollutants
  3. Viral or bacterial infections
  4. Nutritional deficiencies
  5. Chronic stress and anxiety
  6. Genetics and pre-existing conditions

Solutions for Reducing EMF Radiation Exposure:

If you suspect you may be experiencing symptoms of EMF radiation exposure or EHS, the good news is that there are several steps you can take to reduce your exposure and symptoms. Here are some practical solutions:

  1. Turn off electronic devices when you’re not using them.
  2. Avoid carrying your mobile phone close to your body for long periods.
  3. Use wired headphones or earphones instead of wireless ones.
  4. Limit your exposure to Wi-Fi by turning off your router at night.
  5. Use a protective EMF radiation shielding device on your phone, computer, or tablet.
  6. Take regular breaks from using electronic devices.
  7. Spend more time outdoors in nature.
  8. Manage stress levels with mindfulness or relaxation techniques.

While EMF radiation exposure is a part of modern life, it’s essential to pay attention to the potential health effects and take appropriate precautions to reduce exposure. The symptoms of too much EMF radiation exposure vary between individuals, and diagnosis can be challenging because the causes are not yet clearly understood. However, by taking the necessary steps to minimize your exposure to EMF radiation, you can alleviate the symptoms and feel more in control of your health.

How EMF Radiation Impacts Athletic Performance

As an athlete, you’ve probably analyzed several aspects of your life and routine to optimize your performance. You may have started a regimented diet to eat more macro- and micro-nutrients to energize your body on and off the field. You may have taken more supplements or reduced your intake of alcohol to make sure you’re more hydrated. You may have taken ice baths to improve muscle inflammation and help with recovery.

However, you may be ignoring an aspect of your routine that inadvertently affects your performance — something more nefarious and hidden than you realize: EMF radiation.
