If you’d like more energy, and you wonder about the effect of cell phones and other electronic devices on your family, this post is for you.

Electromagnetic pollution is now proven to cause mutation of cells and cancer. Many exposed to radiation from electronics report difficulties in focus and completing tasks, headaches, loss of energy, and feeling unwell.

Not too many know about this pollution, because it’s so new (only 20 years of massively increasing EMF pollution). But, more than 8,000 studies have now been published on how EMFs, or electromagnetic frequencies, are causing health problems.

In this article:

EMF Pollution Stories

People in the Western world are carrying more devices than imaginable even 10 years ago. And, the increase in EMF is happening far faster than safety studies can keep up.

Dirty electricity can cause cancer and diabetes. And, the World Health Organization, the FCC, and the FDA have also issued warnings and classified EMF as a carcinogen.

Recently, I spoke to several people whose health was destroyed, until they employed the protective measures I’ll discuss in this blog post.

Dr. Libby Darnell, in Chicago, talked about her high exposure to a diagnostic machine she began using up to 12 hours a day in her clinical practice, as well as her cell phone and lightbulbs in her home emitting “dirty electricity.”

She felt so unwell that she told her husband, also a doctor, “I wouldn’t be surprised if I start hearing voices soon.”

Addressing these issues turned her health around, and Dr. Darnell is now the mother of a young son. She was a guest on my podcast  (episodes 25, 26, and 27) and talked all about protecting yourself from EMFs.

Dr. Robyn Benson runs a clinic in Santa Fe, NM, and had to clear her home of EMF pollution. She loses steam when traveling because she’s so sensitive to chaotic frequencies in scanners, airplanes, and devices everywhere in crowded environments. (I’ll share tips for reducing your EMF exposure while traveling below.) 

Here in this post, I’ve shared a short video about what EMF is, and why spending a short time and a bit of money addressing it in your home and work environments might be the “small hinge that swings a big door” for your health, like it was for Dr. Darnell and Dr. Benson!

Low Effort, High Impact Habits

Are you drinking your quart of green smoothie every day and working out religiously? These are HIGH EFFORT, HIGH IMPACT habits.

What about LOW EFFORT, HIGH IMPACT habits?

Knowing what’s in this post may be key to improving life—and even saving it, for sensitive individuals—in an increasingly chaotic and toxic world. You might find that employing these tips literally “recharges your battery!”

Trying to sift through all the info and recommendations on the Internet can be totally overwhelming on this topic! 

But ignorance is not bliss, and arming yourself with basic knowledge could improve your health dramatically.

It’s absolutely critical to address EMFs if you have children in your home, because they have very sensitive, developing brains.

So, I want you to have my Top-5 EMF Action Steps Checklist for free. 

These are great things to do to start protecting yourself, your family, and your home from the harmful effects of chaotic, dirty electricity.

My #1 EMF Recommendation 

To protect yourself and those you love, I recommend grabbing Harmoni pendants for yourself and everyone in your family … and stock up to give them as gifts for your health-minded friends. 

Not only is it proven to work, it’s beautiful — I never want to take it off! 

Simply wear one, and you’ll gain peace of mind and protection 24/7. I feel more grounded, peaceful, and less stressed when I wear mine. 

Harmoni pendants work using the science of quantum physics, by taking disharmonious frequencies and turning them into beneficial frequencies. The pendant tunes to your energy field, establishing resonance between you and the pendant, shifting you out of fight-or-flight and into calm mode. 

A clinical trial found some seriously impressive results: wearing the Harmoni pendant for only 5-10 minutes reduced stress by 700%, increased energy by 530%, and improved overall markers of health by 138%!

It can also help release blockages in your energetic field caused by physical and emotional trauma; geopathic stress; heavy metals, toxins, mold, parasites, pesticides, and herbicides. By doing this your body’s natural ability to heal itself is restored. 

John and I wear our pendants everyday!

Another Top EMF Recommendation: Take Ultimate Minerals Daily 

I highly recommend taking GreenSmoothieGirl Ultimate Minerals every morning and night to mop up free radicals, and protect against cell damage, as radiation-protecting iodine and all minerals are represented. 

Important Notes

EMFs are much more harmful to children than adults! So be sure to take actions to protect your kids.

Never text in a parked car. You’ve become an antenna. And using Wi-Fi in your car makes you an antenna in a microwave!

If you are already dealing with a health issue (heavy metal toxic overload, or viral infection, or recovering from cancer, for instance), EMF overexposure can intensify and amplify other illnesses because the immune system is weakened.

Thank you to Dr. Libby Darnell who helped me with this research, after recovering her health that had been devastated by EMF. Check out her wonderful four-part blog series on EMF here!

EMF-Protection Tips While Traveling 

Tip 1: You are exposed to more radiation while you fly in the daytime, less when you fly at night. Every cell needs iodine. Iodine protects from EMFs really well, and antioxidants in general are great for that.

So, be sure to take GreenSmoothieGirl Ultimate Minerals when you travel, a double dose morning and night. 

It is simply concentrated fulvic and humic acids from the Earth, a full spectrum of all 90 minerals and trace minerals (including iodine) from ancient plant deposits. We don’t take synthetic isolates or minerals, and we also steer clear of supplements made from rocks and chalk that the body doesn’t metabolize well.

Tip 2: Opt out of the scanners at the airport. TSA does not want a baby going anywhere near the scanner, so why do they tell you that you are safe? They said the X-Ray machines were safe, and they weren’t. For 10 years now, TSA has told us these new ones are safe, but let’s not be guinea pigs.

New published research shows that the radioactive output of the TSA scanners is significant, and it’s the cumulative effect that is the problem. So if you travel a lot, opt out of the scanner, and they’ll give you a quick pat down instead.

Did you know you can opt-out of TSA scanners when you travel? Doing so protects you from the radioactive output these machines have.

Tip 3: When you’re flying, take your shoes off in your seat, if you have rubber soled shoes. Then you will discharge EMF onto the floor. After you travel, when you get to your hotel, walk on the grass or dirt barefoot for 5 minutes and now you’re good to go—you’ve discharged!

    do you also have a recommendation for emf free headphones?

  2. Lindy says:

    I have seen several different products that claim to do the same thing (i.e.: Fusion Excel Shield, Aulterra). They each claim to have a patent – do you know if they are just as good quality or is the xZubi superior? Also does it last a lifetime or does it start to degrade?

    1. Arliss L Allen says:

      I would be interested in that too because I have had some for a long time, like when she first started selling them.

    2. Judy says:

      “Putting it on your phone is permanent, won’t affect its functioning, and it never “goes bad.” ”

    3. Erin says:

      Did you ever receive a reply regarding whether this is superior to the Fusion or Aulterra?

  3. Mary says:

    I have been dealing with the effects of emf since 1991, any emf is not good. All cell phones are not good for your health, don’t use them and don’t let young children have them. Do not use wifi , just don’t have it in your house. Is having or using a cell phone worth getting a brain tumor? The cell towers are up to 5 gs now. The smart meters are the worst and if your in a state that will not let you opt out , what are you suppose to do. We lived in a complex that 3 people, young, got kinney stones from the smart meter, it dehyates you among other things. We lived without cell phones and Wifi for along time and I believe people were much happier and healthier. They is so much emf in the air you just can’t think any more. The way I see it there is only one choice if you want to be well. Stop using cell phones and Wifi

    1. Robyn says:

      mary, that would be ideal of course. but for those of us who have to use devices to live in the real world, we’ve built our EMF Action Plan there….it’s made a big difference for my family, discovering these things. i put filters on all my outlets and slept through the night, the next three nights in a row, for the first time in 25 years. WOW. how did they know it was caused by smart meter? (kidney stones)

  4. Dawn says:

    Is it better to put the sticker on the back of the cell phone between the phone and the protector case? Or on the outside of the protector case? Or does it work either way?

    1. Robyn Openshaw says:

      dawn, doesn’t matter! either way works.

  5. Mayara says:

    What about power lines and transmission lines? Should we avoid living/ working near them too? Does EMF from transmission lines increase as more people populate an area?

  6. Sarika says:

    Can you put it on your refrigerator and wifi router? Will it even make sense?

    1. Robyn Openshaw says:

      Yes, I do, Sarika, because it doesn’t block signal. It just protects your protons and energies from those signals.

  7. Tali says:

    Can I remove the sticker and place it on a new cell phone?

    1. Robyn Openshaw says:

      Hi Tali, no, you’d have to purchase another one for a new device. Luckily, they’re not expensive. But once you stick them on, they’re permanent.

  8. Geoffrey says:

    Does anyone ever get sick from alkaline water

  9. pd says:

    This is good information, thank you. But technically, EMF stands for electromagnetic field.

  10. Garry says:

    You’ve done a great service to all of us… this article is just so so important.
    Thank you.
    You’ve focused on shielding from negative EMF… truly essential!

    I believe there’s another variable to consider.
    We humans must ensure that our cells get their needed “dose” of Mother Earth’s Pulse… the Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field [PEMF] that bathes our body with cell nourishing fields. This is made up of the Schumann Resonances interacting with the Earth’s vibration frequency.
    These are the same frequency as brain waves, interestingly enough.

    Life on Earth has “lived” with these vibrations forever, and they are an integral aspect of health of all organisms, along with oxygen, water, food, sunlight…

    We cannot be healthy if disconnected from the “natural biological frequency”. Early astronauts had health problems when away from the Earth’s EM fields. These were solved my putting “resonators” onto spacecraft.

    The biology of every organism on Earth requires these frequencies, but we humans are not nourished as we once were. Too many other interfering energy sources, such as those you’ve mentioned. And the static ubiquitous “products” of civilization [buildings, roadways etc.] block the essential earth-generated healing fields.

    So, we are doubly doomed…
    -negative energy overwhelming our bodies
    -blockage of the nourishing energy we need

    You’ve mentioned several excellent ways of overcoming the negative fields. And the bare-foot contact with earth will certainly help us to tap into Mother Earth’s Pulse.

    I know of a way to ensure our bodies can source the necessary PEMF so that our bodies are bathed in the positive energy fields.
    But, it’s expensive. And this Blog Comment is NOT a place for a sales pitch!

    All that I feel comfortable in telling you is… it certainly made a HUGE positive difference in my old body.
    Reduced pain, and increased mobility. Less Hurtin’ and More Dancin’

    NOW… how am I ever going to be able to give up my connection to this world? I mean my cell phone!

    1. GSG Support says:

      Garry, Thanks for your detailed comment and insight! I agree with PEMF and thank you for not overtly “selling”!

  11. Colin Bowser says:

    What about EMF blocking paint for a bedroom? Do you have a recommendation? We live in an apartment bombarded with Wifi on every side. Need help! Thanks!

  12. Marlene says:

    I’m confused. I remember Halogen bulbs being recommended as safe and LED being bad for you. When did this change?

  13. Chandra says:

    I travel frequently, so I am wondering — surely, it would be OK to use scissors to cut the XZUBI disc from the paper it comes on–rather than ‘unsticking’ it from the mailing paper-stock…..surely, that extra thickness of paper-stock is irrelevant to the viability of the Disc ? That way, as I travel, I could put a XZUBI on the AC + its remote control, as well as a TV + its control– then remove them when I leave the guest house. I would use tape to affix the cut-out Disc to ‘whatever.’
    When I changed cell phones, I noticed that the XZUBI was barely sticking on any more (held in place by the phone’s case) –so then I used tape to affix it to the new cell phone.
    >>>>so, ?is there any decrease in the protection*strength of the XZUBI if it is cut off the paper-stock on which it is sent. I also have been a long-time user, now a travelling one as well !
    Thanks !

    I love the toxic home webinar. I cannot seem to find the source for the water and air filters which I would like to purchase. Could you help?

    1. Elsa Anderson says:

      Hi Jonathan, We’re thrilled to hear you’ve enjoyed our Toxic Home Transformation Summit.

      Here is the link for the Life Ionizer:
      And the link for the AirDoctor:

  15. Ambar Culhane says:

    This is unfair…I can’t purchase because I live in Australia.

    1. Rose Butler GSG says:

      Ambar, I know! We are working on being able to ship internationally. We hope that comes available soon.
