Indirect EMF protection – does it really work?
What sparked me off on this was a question put to me by one of my readers, Louay, a few days ago:
“Where would you say is the best place to start in tackling my toxic environment? Should I start with checking for EMFs and then move onto dirty electricity, or start cleansing my body first with liver detoxes etc and then the rest?
The reason I ask is that all these meters, filters and detox protocols are really expensive and so it would be helpful if you could guide us on the one thing to do first which would yield immediate results and then we can focus on the other things later.
Any advice would be much appreciated. Many thanks.”
The interesting question Louay asks is “what is the one thing to do first which would yield immediate results?”
I want to answer this important question because it addresses a fundamental misunderstanding about EMF protection. You see there are two distinct forms of EMF protection, direct EMF protection and indirect EMF protection.
What Is Direct EMF Protection?
It's the obvious stuff. It's what most people ask me about. It's dealing with EMF sources directly. Classic EMF protection and avoidance. Most people go about this in a common sense way. They read up on it, maybe they download my free report or similar resource, they eliminate / reduce their exposure to EMF sources like cordless phones, cell phones, wifi, clock radio etc. Ultimately it usually ends in the realization that they need an EMF meter to identify the EMF hotspots in their environment. They invest in a meter…..
What Is Indirect EMF Protection?
It's all the other stuff. It's what most of us overlook. We overlook it because it doesn't seem relevant. But if it doesn't seem relevant that's because you haven't understood the all encompassing nature of EMFs.
And in a way I don't blame you because for a long time I didn't understand it either. When I became electrically sensitive (in fact hypersensitive) back in 2002 I knew EMFs were affecting me. I could feel it. So I bought EMF meters, I did the shielding and so on. But I soon realized my health wasn’t improving. It seemed I was getting worse.
When I realized that EMF exposures were only part of the problem, that's when I began to make progress with my recovery. This realization came when I did my first cleanse.
I actually did two cleanses. I did a parasite cleanse and then a liver cleanse over a period of a couple of weeks. The first time I cleansed the results were remarkable. Overnight I felt a SIGNIFICANTLY better.
I thought I'd cracked it. Cleansing was the solution. So I did more and more cleanses but despite all this my sensitivity came back.
How Can You Get Indirect EMF Protection?
So what really is the solution? Classic EMF protection and avoidance, yes. But cleansing also and a panoply of other forms of indirect EMF protection. That's to say:
- nutrition – eat an essentially whole, natural and organic diet. Eat local. Eat less meat. Meat tends to be a big source of toxins and it tips you into an acid rather than an alkaline balance
- exercise – no need to be an exercise freak, start slowly and build up to something that over the course of a week incorporates aerobic, anaerobic exercises and stretching
- earthing – direct contact with the earth simultaneously replenishes the body with natural direct current electrons, and facilitates evacuation or discharge of accumulated harmful man-made EMFs
- mind/body techniques – acknowledging your body as the subtle energy system it is, bringing into play visualization, meditation and other energy techniques
It's about looking at the big picture.
Because EMF exposures are only part of the problem. They are an important toxin but they also act like a trigger. In a gun the trigger releases the hammer which detonates the explosives. For the trigger to have any impact it has to hit the explosives. In our case the explosives aren't gunpowder they are the toxic conditions you create in your body. How are these toxic conditions created? Very easily. They are in the food we eat (think pesticides, GMOs etc), the air we breathe (think particle pollution and ozone), the creams and lotions (think chemicals) we put on our skins….
EMF Protection – Immediate Results
You need to deal with all the things that introduce toxins into your body. All? Yes. But not all at once. One step at a time.
What should you do first to yield immediate results? I can't guarantee you immediate results. But when was the last time you popped a pill and were guaranteed immediate results. And the big difference with pill popping is that here there aren't a multitude of undesirable side effects.
So where should you start to get the most bang for your buck? It depends where you are at the moment on the EMF issue. If you know little about your current EMF exposures, haven't measured the EMFs in your environment haven't taken measures to mitigate these exposures, then classic, direct EMF protection is where you must start.
If you've already done all this, then a little more finesse is required. You've probably heard the expression “the healer is within”. Read again my list above, nutrition, exercise, cleansing etc. What aspect of your health are you neglecting? Is it the exercise? Do you take any exercise? Is it the mind/body techniques? To what degree is your mental and emotional state contributing to your health problems? Think about these questions and other questions like these. This'll tell you what to focus on first.
Act in a state of non-expectancy of immediate results. If you act in the expectation of spectacular immediate results, you're setting yourself up for failure. Keep a neutral mindset. Welcome every small progress you make with gratitude.
Rigorous direct and indirect EMF protection is how I got my health back on track. It's not easy. It'll take time and effort but its the ONLY long term effective solution to dealing with your EMF exposures. Start today. Baby steps.
I just want to say how very helpful this take on the whole picture of health protection is. Thank you so much for all of this, your answers and the new Forum. : )
So glad to see you included Earthing in your list of indirect EMF protection strategies. I’ve just begun to add that element into my protocols.

First I got a grounding pad. I already have a AC DC meter.
I measured the voltage in my body, stood in the grass, plugged in the grounding to the AC plug all with no change.
Then I got a Trifield meter model 100XE. I have 12 power meters on the other side of my bedroom wall. I live in a condo and the fuse box is in the hallway in the center of the living area which extends to the next unit, through the center of my living area. Using the meter on a towel on the floor I measured the guass (over 100guass) through the area. so, apparently the cables for the electric are right under my floor. The front room is the safest area in the whole house. I moved the bed away from the wall and to the other side of the room and sleep much better.
Then I bought a cornet meter ED85. I measured the WIfi and removed it, it was on my desk. I went about a 1,000 yards to a cell tower and got no readings.
I put my condo up for sale because I have idopathic neuropathy and feel like it is caused by walking on the electric cables under my floor.
Could this be?
Why do I not get a reading from the cornet at the cell tower?
Brilliant addition. Yes, I think one thing leads to another, and if we use emf sensitivity as a springboard to getting well and addrressing other things that are stressing our bodies, then it becomes a positive experience and we go on to help other people realise what is making them feel ill, rather than feeling like victims or just feeling angry.
I want to thank you too. I have learned sooooo much from you. Two more things to look into. Wearing pure linen and sleeping on a non spring mattress
with either wool or linen sheets. Studies on the springs in the mattress have been suspected of adding to cancer risks. Dr. Mercola has the article. Shalom, ~__/>

I am concerned with earthing using the ground because I feel the electric company uses the ground to send back the spent electric. I got a jolt using the pad using the outlet in my home. I use a brass washer (be careful because some that come from China use brass paint on the outside of steel). I put the brass washer in my shoe and it brings up the earthing just fine. Also, very inexpensive.
Thank you Lloyd, I do have a question regarding earthing. I recently heard an interview with Sam Milham about dirty electricity. They talked about earthing products usually use the ground outlet of the house. However Sam had discovered “polluted” current in some of those outlets and the return currents are not being grounded properly. Plugging into such outlet may do more harm than good.
Any comment on that and how do we test them?

Well balanced and earthed !

Since I spend a fair amount of time in my home office when not traveling for my work, is there a way to put some sort of mat down that is grounded to the earth outside that I can place my bare feet on when I am at the computer and the desk so I can earth while sitting there?
Does a concrete/ceramic tile floor negate the positive effects of earthing or will walking barefoot on that have any benefit?
I truly believe in earthing as when I am camping, hunting, or photographing scenery and wildlife in the outdoors, I have always just laid on the ground for a nap to recharge. Those are always the best naps and for good reason. Always wake up refreshed, no matter what length of nap I get.
Proceed with caution when grounding yourself in an office environment (where there EMFs), see https://www.electricsense.com/1861/using-earthing-to-combat-electromagnetic-pollution-my-review/
yes, you can still expect to earth through concrete and ceramic flooring but to a lesser degree.
