Does EMF Shielding Clothing Work?

Posted by Robert Daniel on 2/20/2015 to Wireless

Stop what you are doing a minute. Now just concentrate and feel what’s going on.

Can you feel anything?

No? Don’t worry most people can’t feel anything.

But some people can.

They can feel EMFs.

Some of them, not only can they feel it, it’s a great source of pain.

I know because I once felt this pain.

The name given to these people is electrically sensitive or electromagnetic hypersensitive.

All that means is that they can feel EMFs.

Maybe you are one of these people.

Whether you can feel EMFs or not, know this: you are being bombarded 24/7 with these invisible, man-made energies.

EMFs can penetrate deeply into your body and cause untold damage.

Some examples of the many devices that expose our bodies to EMFs:
  • Your mains power supply
  • Mobile phones
  • Cordless DECT phones
  • Wifi & bluetooth
  • Microwave ovens
  • Switched mode power supplies, inverters in many modern devices
  • Compact fluorescent lights (CFLs)
  • AM radio broadcasts
  • CB radio
  • FM radio broadcasts
  • TETRA digital radio
  • 2-way radios
  • Television broadcasts
These devices work over a huge frequency range. Some operate at less than a hundred cycles per second others at many billions of cycles per second (Ghz).
It makes sense to protect yourself. But EMF protection takes many shapes and forms. The first form of protection many people think of, which was the first form of EMF protection I thought of, was shielded clothing. But there are some misconceptions on this subject, which I ‘d like to clear up.

EMF Shielded Clothing

There are so many EMF shielding products on the market:
  • Caps
  • Hats
  • Headnets
  • Gloves
  • Scarves
  • Hoodies
  • Jeans
  • Sleeveless blouses
  • Pants
  • Boxer shorts
  • Aprons
  • Sleeping Bags
  • Body Nets
Do They Work?

Yes and no. There are people that swear by the use of EMF protective clothing. I’m not one of them and I’ve tried various garments.

At one time my situation was that really I couldn’t go outside without feeling seriously unwell. So I wanted to shield my body by wearing clothing that would stop me getting zapped.

My experience: I didn’t feel any better when I was wearing this clothing. But then when you consider how EMFs work it isn’t really surprising.

What Is Protective Clothing Supposed To Do?

It usually tells you on the packaging, all shielded fabrics are not created equal. The packaging should talk about things like attenuation and decibels (dB). Attenuation means the shielding performance. Most personal shielding fabrics shield radio frequency (RF) radiation. Some also shield power frequency electric fields (what’s in your electrical wiring). For instance it might say something like “shielding Effect: 20dB at 1-10 GHz”. That means in the frequency range of 1 to 10 GHz, which covers cell phones and WiFi, the product has a shielding performance of 99%. So only 1% of the power penetrates. If the attenuation was given as 10dB that would mean that 99.9% of the power would be removed by shielding.

That sounds pretty good doesn’t it?

Yes, BUT it’s misleading. Read on.

Why Is Personal Shielding Not Always A Good Idea?

Firstly, let’s look at how this shielding works. RF shielding, which is why most people buy shielding, works very simply. It works by creating a conductive enclosure where there is very little leakage. In physics this set up is called a Faraday Cage.

This can be very effective where you are shielding a room, but it needs to be done properly. Let me remind you of the correct procedure when shielding.

Before you shield you take readings with your EMF meter, then you shield, then you take readings again. And so on and so forth, until exposures are reduced to a satisfactory level.

And herein lies the problem – how can you create a conductive enclosure with boxer shorts or pants or a hooded sweatshirt? You can’t.

How can you take readings with an EMF meter? You can’t.

My second point concerns the fabrics used in these shielding products. If you look on the labels you’ll see words like Naturell, Staticot, Silverell, Radiashield written on them.

These are brand names of different products which offer different textures but what these products all have in common is that they provide shielding performance via a highly conductive fabric. That’s how they shield. They bounce off the EMFs or 99% of EMFs or whatever their performance specification is.

There are different ways this can be achieved but it’s generally achieved by using metal filaments (fine wires). Stainless steel, copper and silver are popular choices. Do you see the problem? I don’t want to have to wear metallic/synthetic clothes all day like some EMF version of Robocop. This doesn’t fit my conception of living a healthy normal life.

Surely some EMF protection is better than no EMF protection? That’s true except where it’s dangerous.

The Danger

Remember EMFs are capable of seeping through the tiniest of gaps. When you wear a shielded sleeveless blouse there isn’t just a tiny gap where the RF radiation can seep through, there are gaping holes. Remember this radiation can penetrate glass, wood, concrete and in this case the top and bottom of your torso and arm sockets, as if there was nothing there.

The danger is that the RF radiation seeps through the openings and then can’t escape because of the shielding. If it can’t escape it will then be absorbed into your body’s tissues which may contribute to a heating effect. The danger is that in so doing you will inflict more damage than if you weren’t wearing shielded clothing.

Another danger is not being protected when you think you are, which relates to the shielding performance.  All EMF shielding products are not created equal.  Watch out for scams.

If you’re wearing a shielding product that offers zero shielding performance then you’re wearing a synthetic product which may be teeming with chemicals and dyes that cannot be washed out, making it a potential health hazard with no upside.

Always check the shielding performance characteristics shown on the packaging or website before you buy and buy from a reputable company.

Subtle Energy Beings

Shielded clothing can work. We live in a quick fix world so it seems the right thing to do is to just go out and buy some expensive clothing to solve the EMF problem. But shielded clothing should only ever be a last resort measure.

Personally I’ve never been reliant on EMF protective clothing. I’ve bought shielded caps and head nets and body nets in the past but I soon realized these were not the answer. I’d take them with me to give me piece of mind when I traveled but I rarely used them.

A rounded holistic approach to EMF protection is the only approach that works. One that embraces the undeniable fact that we are multi-level subtle energy beings. Given that we function on a multi-level basis healing will invariably involve engaging in practices and therapies that address issues at different levels.

Short term that may mean that you keep a shielded garment close by but what you really need to focus on is the other stuff. Firstly, basic EMF protection in your environment, taking readings of the different types of EMFs and eliminate, and then mitigate as far as possible. Secondly working on the bigger picture, that means reconnecting with nature and the natural energies of the planet through techniques like nutrition, cleansing and energy medicine.

Suppliers Of EMF Protective Clothing

If you do decide to equip yourself with some items of shielded clothing make sure you buy quality shielding clothing from a reputable company (if you live in the UK this company) but above all, keeping working on the other stuff.
