Nutrients to Help your Body Cope with EMF Exposure.

It is becoming more widely accepted that EMF’s are able to exert a biological effect on the human body.  It is important to try and understand what this affect is, so you can help protect yourself from this invisible human stressor.

The WHO has stated

“if sufficiently large, EMF’s could cause stimulation of nerves and muscles or affect other biological processes”

However a statement like this is very vague and broad and How large is too large?

With the emergence of Electromagnetic hypersensitivity Syndrome, even small exposures may have dramatic effects on the health of many individuals.

The WHO has also classified RF-EMF as ‘’possible carcinogenic to humans

How Does EMF Exposure Affect Your Body?

EMF’s can have an influence on any tissue that has a particle charge and can influence the electrical charge at the surface of cells.  The Human body maybe vulnerable to EMF exposure, as it is made up of cells with charged particles.

Non Ionising EMF’s has the potential to cause excessive nitric oxide production and increased neurotransmitter production leading to increased inflammation and the production of free radicals. (also known as Reactive oxygen species).

Increased Free Radical damage has the potential to negatively affect every system in the body. This includes changes in the immune response, hormones, energy production and even brain health

How Can You Protect Yourself from Electrosmog?

Reducing your exposure as much as possible is ideal. It is becoming harder and harder to avoid however, so utilising appropriate EMF protection devices discussed on this website, is a great start.

What Else Can You Do About Esmog?

Knowing that EMF exposure can potentially increase free radical damage and inflammation, these are two areas that should be addressed.

  • Antioxidants
  • Diet

Adequate Antioxidant Intake?

Antioxidants are nutrients that have the ability to quench and negate free radicals. By doing this the damaging affect of the free radicals is reduced or totally negated.

It is important to realise that free radicals are being continuously produced in the body as part of the natural biochemical reactions that require the body function normally.

Most of the antioxidants that help reduce this free radical damage caused by these reactions comes from our food.

A Healthy  Diet.

 Hence the importance of a healthy diet rich in healthy protein, healthy fats and vegetables.

Bright coloured fruits and vegetables are particularly high in antioxidants.

Reducing processed foods and sugar is important for health in general, and particularly if you want to help reduce inflammation and oxidative stress.

Smoking and high alcohol consumption can also increase free radicals.

Is a Healthy Diet Enough?

EMF exposure

Unfortunately, modern living brings many stressors on your body which increases the production of these free radicals and inflammatory chemicals to the point extra support may be needed.

Modern stressors include EMF exposure, pesticides, heavy metals and other pollutants, and stress itself.

Modern living has also bought with it food that may not have the levels of nutrients it once did. This is due in part to the use of chemicals, foods grown in nutrient depleted soil and food harvested before fully ripened.

Growing your own food and buying organic is always ideal.

Nutrients to Consider for EMF Protection

Green Tea

One of the ingredients in green tea called EGCG may help protect against the oxidative stress caused by long-term exposure to EMFs.


This amazing herb has been shown to have an anti-inflammatory effect and has antioxidant properties.


Another powerful antioxidant that may help the body cope with long-term EMF exposure.

Omega 3 Fish Oils

Pure omega 3 fish oil may have an anti-inflammatory effect on the body.

In summary it is important to combine a healthy diet with additional nutrients to ensure you help protect your body from the damage of EMF exposure

Other nutrients that may be beneficial are Vitamin C, Grape Seed Extract, Vitamin E, and Milk Thistle
