Lowering EMF Exposure
1. For Wifi Users - unplug WiFi router and cordless phones at bedtime (or use an electric timer) also turn off cellphones (or put in airplane mode with wifi/bluetooth turned off)
Wifi routers should be kept at least 10 ft. away - distance is your friend
Use a Wifi Router Guard to lower Wifi signals -
Slower Speed Modem
Arris T25 (1 Gbps) - better if you are EMF sensitive
JRS Eco-Wifi router is also an option https://emfacademy.com/low-emf- router/
2. Use a corded landline phone - make sure it is not a phone which allows for remote
handsets (which uses wireless DECT technology)
Many corded answering systems use WiFi. The solution is a separate phone and answering machine, which can be purchased at thrift stores or on Ebay.
AT&T still sells a good phone/answering system combination:
or just a handset (with caller ID)
and separate answering machine:

MagicJack is another option for landline service -
An internet phone service costing $40 per year for unlimited calling to the United States and Canada. https://www.magicjack.com/
3. DECT cordless phones (charging base) emit very high wireless radiation 24/7 - even when not in use. Unplug at bedtime or use a low Emf version 900 Mhz cordless telephone answering system (available on Ebay) which only emits when in use. Newer ECO models are available which advertise this same feature. The best solution is to use only corded phones.
4. Switch to a wired ethernet computer connection using an ethernet cable connected to your router
Cable modem compatible with Comcast internet, cable and phone:
Motorola Model 7B220
Router- with Wifi on/off switch
Router - no Wifi
Gigabit speed - no wireless capability
Shielded Cat6 Ethernet Cable
a) Important: Also Disable WiFi/bluetooth on your computer
In your computer settings - disable wifi/bluetooth and enable ethernet
b) For Laptop computers without an ethernet port - via USB
An easy way to make a wired connection is with the Ultimate Grounding USB to Ethernet adapter: https://www.electrahealth.com/Ultimate-Grounding- USB-to-Gigabit-Ethernet-Adapter-with-USB-Hub.html
Plus Cat 6 ethernet cable: https://www.electrahealth.com/Ethernet-LAN- Cables_c_59.html
Make sure the outlet you plug the grounding adapter into is properly grounded. You can get an outlet tester at any hardware store for less than $10.
Important: for laptops with an ethernet port, plug in your grounded power cord (3 prong) when in use. If your power cord is ungrounded (2 prong), use
a USB ground cord, which connects from a USB port on your laptop to a grounded outlet. https://lessemf.com/ground.html
c) For room to room connections use a long ethernet cord or
TP Link AV600 (which uses your homes wiring as a way to enable ethernet connections).
For faster speeds/more capacity use Nexus 1200 Powerline Adapter Kit https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07NQ6D922/ref=dp_prsubs_1
Nexus 1200 Powerline Adapter Kit with extra outlet https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07NQ66RLP/ref=emc_b_5_t
Another option - Multimedia Over Cable Alliance Technology (MOCA)
The other option is to use MOCA, or multimedia over cable alliance technology. The device used is called an Ethernet to Coax Adapter Kit for Homes with Cable TV Service. This sends the Internet signal over existing coaxial cables in your house, which are shielded, even if you already use your coaxial cables for TV service. https://www.amazon.com/Actiontec-MoCA-Network-Adapter- Ethernet/dp/B013J7OBUU/ref=dp_prsubs_2?pd_rd_i=B088KV2YYL&th=1
In one room you connect one Ethernet to Coax adapter unit to your router using a provided Ethernet cable. You then connect the unit to a nearby coaxial cable using the provided coaxial cable. Then connect the other adapter unit to a computer in another room anywhere in the house using another Ethernet cable and connect the unit to a nearby coaxial cable jack in a wall in that room.
One unit goes in the room with the modem and router and an additional unit goes wherever you want Internet access in the house. However, the room you want internet access in has to have a functioning coaxial cable that is connected in the walls to the coaxial cable in the room with the modem and router.
d) Important: Also go online to turn off Wifi on the router/modem
AT&T Uverse -
Comcast Xfinity -
Also disable the Comcast public wifi hotspot
These modems are compatible with Comcast internet, cable and phone:
Netgear CM1150V (2 Gbps) and the Arris T25 (1 Gbps).
People who are electrically sensitive generally do better with slower speed of the Arris T25.
- In some instances you may need to call your carrier for assistance -
do this only as a last resort.
5. Use a wired keyboard and mouse - plugged into USB ports on your computer.
6. ipad and iphone - making a wired ethernet connection
You will need these two adapters:
1) Lightning to USB 3 Camera Adapter
2) USB 2.0 Ethernet Network Adapter
7. For Chromebook use this adapter
8. Do not wear a Smart Watch or Fitbit
These devices have a very strong wireless radiation signal that disrupts the
body's electrical system, often causing heart palpitations, tinnitis, headaches and other biological harm.
Apple watch can be put in airplane mode.
9. Opt out from SmartMeters
You can opt out of SmartMeter participation with one of the following methods:
- Submit a SmartMeter™ Opt-Out Form online
- Submit a request in-person at your local PG&E office. Find your local PG&E office. Download Office Locations by Area (PDF, 291 KB)PDF.
- Call the SmartMeter line at 1-866-743-0263.
Or use a Smart Meter Cover to lower signals -
Here is another site for purchasing smart meter covers https://smartmeterguard.com/
10. Keep cell phones away from your body - use speaker or airtube headset.
Do not use bluetooth or wireless headsets - they have very high radiation levels.
Put in airplane mode (disable wifi/bluetooth) or turn off when not in use.
The highest signals occur when placing or receiving calls - always hold phone away from the body.
Compose texts/emails in airplane/offline mode before sending.
You can also forward your cell phone to your landline.
11. Turn off electricity to the bedroom at night via electrical breaker switch.
If this is not possible, make sure bed is at least 1-2 ft. away from the walls.
No digital clocks. Unplug or move lamps and other electrical devices.
An electrician can install a remote shut off switch to the bedroom breakers.
Very electrically sensitive persons may want to shut off additional breakers
12. Lower Blue Light Exposure - to protect eyes and increase melatonin
for better sleep
- Download the free blue light lowering program F.lux for computer and smartphone https://justgetflux.com/
- Wear blue light blocking glasses during computer and cell phone use
13. Use only incandescent light bulbs - healthier than fluorescent, CFL or LED
Incandescent bulbs are available on Ebay.
14. Avoid using "Smart" appliances. Turn off wifi on Smart TV's. Connect via HMDI
or ethernet port wired connection instead.

15. Use an RF-Free GPS

What Distance is Safe?
The guidelines below are the minimum distances usually needed to reduce the EMFs down to the General Public Precautionary Levels. Individuals with a heightened sensitivity to electromagnetic fields — or other serious health issues such as chronic fatigue, cancer or Lyme Disease — may want to reduce their exposures even further, perhaps down to the much stricter EMF Hypersensitivity Advisory levels. For these concerns, consider doubling many of the distances shown in the table below. And perhaps most important, please listen to your own body, intuition and experience as your final guide.
