5G and Headaches - As 5G Expands, The Need for Protection Will Too

5G and Headaches - As 5G Expands, The Need for Protection Will Too

Are you prone to headaches? Nausea or weakness that can’t be explained? 

With 5G’s roll-out across North America continuing through the 2020 year, consumers are aware now more than ever of the ever-increasing prevalence of EMF and other electromagnetic pollution and their role in our daily lives and health.

5G’s introduction to the broader world is effectively the largest human experiment in human history, as millions of North Americans are and will continue to be exposed to high-frequency transmission from 5G towers.

In the face of a changing world, more and more people are exploring options to limit their exposure to EMF caused by 5G and other sources. 

Can you be “allergic” to RF Signals like 5G?

Reports of allergies or sensitivity to RF signals have existed as long as wireless technology itself. In many ways, concerns about radio frequencies are nothing new: concerns about frequency-induced sickness started in the 1970s. In many ways,5G RF technology has been growing as a public health issue alongside broader environmental initiatives of the time.

Incidences of RF “allergies” are grouped under a classification of Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS). EHS study is still an ongoing process, and no true definition or qualified treatment exists for those who suffer from headaches, dizziness or fatigue as a result of EMF exposure.

How can you manage 5G headaches/RF headaches?

For many individuals, electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) can be a difficult condition to manage, as symptoms can come suddenly and do not respond to regular medications..

Whether you suffer from intermittent or chronic headaches from 5G, there are a number of steps you can take now to limit your potential exposure to 5G radiation sources.

Limit Use of Mobile Devices or Change How You Use Them

Unfortunately, mobile devices and the convenience of constant connection are here to stay, There are, however, meaningful steps to use your phone, tablet, and laptop responsibly.

  • Limiting overall mobile usage during the day. The average American spends 3 hours and 10 minutes per day on a mobile device, often checking or rechecking social media throughout the day. Reducing overall usage is not only a positive health choice, it can build better work and social habits over time.

  • Turn off your phone and store it when not in use. 5G networks, unlike 4G, are constantly transmitting data in order to provide faster transfer speeds. That means that, even when your phone isn't being use, it is still transmitting and receiving 5G millimetre waves.

  • Consider taking calls with a headset to limit direct exposure of 5G signals originated from your phone. Airtube headsets are a great way to limit the risk of EMF exposure, using acoustic technology instead of wiring to use your device.
  • Use EMF-blocking protection tools that work with your device. Keeping your mobile phone in an EMF-proofed phone case and using a Protective Laptop Tray when using your PC can provide protection from EMF radiation when they’re in-use or in storage.

Try Wearables that Limit EMF and 5G Exposure to the Head

The head, brain, and nervous system are especially vulnerable to EMF exposure. Not only are most wireless devices designed to be used or around the head, studies have shown that 900MHz electromagnetic fields can damage the blood-brain barrier in rodents and may or can? (less definitive)lead to cognitive impairment. 

To compare, 5G networks on the mid-band frequencies transmits between 2 and 3GHz, and high bands even further, up to 37GHz or over 37 times higher frequency than signals that induces irreversible brain damage in lab studies. Thus, protecting your head from EMF radiation should be an important consideration as 5G continues to proliferate. 

We recommend specialized materials containing silver and/or copper elements, that can provide effective shielding up to 50dB, or 99.999% effective protection against EMF radiation from 5G and other sources. The style of head protection is up to you, but protective head gear is available in Simple Caps, Baseball Hats and Bandanas to suit your personal preference.

5G Health Effects

Identify Environmental Risk Factors in Your Home and Vicinity

As 5G operates on much higher wavelengths than previous network generations, the transmission range of towers are very short, sacrificing range of signal for density of information transferred.

While outside of cities, tower placement can be expected to be similar or comparable to the current 4G network, dense city developments will favor higher brand transmissions, where effective range is about 330 meters (less than 2% of a 4G tower’s effective range.) 

As development on 5G tower is ongoing, the odds of living in close proximity to a 5G tower, and thus to its EMF radiation, will only increase -- especially for urban residents. 

Successfully protecting your home against 5G radiation can provide ongoing relief from outside sources of EMF, including:

  • A bed canopy or “faraday canopy” is among the best solutions for protection during the third of the day that you sleep. They are considerable investments, but are durable and permanent options that can be worthwhile.
  • Personal protection if you live close to a transmission tower. While options are many, it would be wise to focus on solutions for immediate relief of symptoms (ie. head protection for those prone to headaches from EMF or other sources).

Stay Conscious of your Health and Your Environment

Headaches can be caused by many factors and can have implications from benign to life-threatening. We simply do not know enough about the association between 5G, EMF and chronic headaches, but initial studies suggest that electromagnetic pollution all around us has an effect on our health.

Above all, we at EMRSS encourage you to stay aware and conscious of your health, your environment, and the presence of EMF in your life and your home. Understanding how these things play a role in our lives can help us manage the inevitability of new technology and the risks that accompany new technology.

Hello Loree,

We hope that you found the blog informative. When it comes to shielding against 5G we find that the most effective way is to shield with Woremor RF-IE50 Protective Shielding Paint. This paint is very effective for shielding against HF RF radiation from cell towers and smart meters. The paint works in a way that would reflect/repel the RF signals away from your home. The paint can be applied from the inside of your home, or on the outside using the Woremor RF-IE50 paint. Another excellent way to shield is by covering the windows. We can custom make curtains to cover your windows. Please give us a call for more information.

Hello,
I’m writing in terms of a friend of mine who has opened my eyes up to this part of the world that I was completely unaware of. We live in a city of around 40,000 people, I live kinda in the less but still busy part of the business section of town and she lives in a trailer court on the outter side of town. She and her family all suffer from these unexplainable headaches that as you said do not respond to medications at all at most of the time along with sever fatigue more than anyone I know and high and low radio frequency’s that cause them sever levels of anger stress axitey. They even experience werid muscle pains and joint pain. Now none of them are smokers and live a pretty healthy life style she is very big on not buying or consuming processed meats and food and is a garden growing canning type so she is also aware of the pollution that’s put into our foods. The nausea is also a sever problem for them. And the level of these attacks come very quickly and always unaware of when they are going to be suffering from them. Now me on the other hand I smoke cigarettes daily I don’t watch what I eat as well as I should and I don’t exercise however I also do not suffer from any of these attacks as my friend and her family does. My question is this is it possible that since they live in a trailer court are the risks for them much high than others and if so can you explain the levels and reasons why they would be. Thank you

Hello Noella, Thank you for reaching out to us. I would use the phone as much as possible on speaker phone when you are talking. When at home and not using your phone you could also have your cell phone calls forwarded to your house line. It helps when you are not using cell phone to have on airplane mode. This will turn off your Bluetooth and WiFi on your phone. I hope that this helps.
