Protect Yourself from EMFs to Reduce Autoimmune Symptoms 


We are surrounded by technology and electronic devices in today’s modern world. These devices emit EMF radiation, which can lead to adverse health effects with constant exposure. EMFs can cause oxidative stress, inflammation, and cellular damage – potentially leading to health issues like Alzheimer’s, tinnitus, depression, skin conditions, and more. They can also affect sleep quality, fertility, and our nervous and immune systems.

New Research Shows EMFs Contribute to Autoimmune Disease

Not surprisingly, EMFs are also a potential trigger behind autoimmune and chronic diseases. A recent study showed that shielding yourself from EMFs can actually help counteract autoimmune symptoms. The study tested patients with a range of autoimmune diseases such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and multiple sclerosis — and a whopping 90% indicated a reduction in autoimmune symptoms after wearing EMF shielding clothing. 

Since I have two autoimmune diseases, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and interstitial cystitis (IC), I know I’m more susceptible to the harmful effects of EMF radiation. That’s why I arm myself with the best EMF shielding products on the market. 

DefenderShield is a Trusted Expert in EMF Shielding Technology

I’ve been using DefenderShield’s line of EMF shielding products since 2018, and I haven’t turned back since! Backed by FCC-certified lab testing, DefenderShield provides safety living with today’s technology. It’s the only EMF protection capable of blocking the entire frequency spectrum of harmful EMF – blocking up to 99% of EMF frequencies, including the full 5G spectrum.

I first discovered DefenderShield when I was diagnosed with interstitial cystitis (IC), a chronic bladder disease, and was looking for an EMF laptop shield. I frequently worked with the laptop directly on my lap and wanted to protect my bladder, which is when I found DefenderShield’s DefenderPad. The DefenderPad Laptop Radiation Shield protects your lap from EMF and 5G by absorbing and dissipating the radiation between the laptop and your body. Men should especially be wary of putting laptops directly on their laps as the heat from a laptop can kill sperm, and EMF radiation can damage sperm integrity, hormones, cells, and DNA.

Since I loved my DefenderPad, I started buying more of DefenderShield’s products. While I now use nearly a dozen of their products, these are a few of my favorites: 

EMF Protection + Radiation Blocking Cell Phone Case

If there’s one product I think everyone should have, it’s a phone case since we’re constantly glued to our cell phones. DefenderShield’s EMF blocking case is the only cell phone radiation shield capable of shielding all forms of cell phone EMF radiation, including 5G and up to 90 GHz. All you have to do is keep the shielded front cover between your body and cell phone, and a barrier is created to help protect you from potentially harmful radiation. I bought these for my whole family a couple of years ago, and we all love them! 

EMF Radiation-Free Headphones

I love my DefenderShield over-ear headphones for work meetings, listening to podcasts/music, and more. DefenderShield’s radiation-free technology “delivers crystal clear sound via hollow air tubes rather than traditional wires” and was developed by audio engineering specialists. I feel safe wearing them and love knowing I’m not getting radiation directly to my head and ears. DefenderShield also has EMF Radiation-Free Earbuds with custom-fit ear tips if you prefer a sleeker look.

Is It Time to You Toss Your AirPods?

You may now be wondering if your AirPods are safe. Well, the research points to several potentially damaging biological effects. To me, that’s not worth the risk – but it’s up to each person individually. Whatever you decide, it’s important to do your research, be aware, and be mindful of the potential risks and options available.

EMF Radiation Protection Clutch Purse

DefenderShield’s clutch is perfect for carrying all of your basics – phone, keys, cards, etc. It’s so cute (I honestly like it more than my designer bags), and it’s great for a night out or during the day. It has RFID blocking card slots for your credit cards to keep your credit card information secure. Speaking of safety, DefenderShield has an entire line of military-grade Ultra Armor gear that’s designed for cybersecurity and privacy purposes. DefenderShield’s Faraday Shielding is a last line of defense against cyber attacks in government, business or military applications, traveling and commuting, and more.

Driving Awareness Through Education Backed by Scientific Studies

What I love the most about DefenderShield is the company’s mission to improve digital wellness and reduce the harmful effects of modern-day technology. When I moved to St. Petersburg, FL last year, I was excited to learn that DefenderShield is a local company! The team is awesome and passionate about spreading awareness and accurate information to the public. 

DefenderShield has tons of resources on its website explaining EMFs and their health effects, as well as tips for protecting yourself – all backed by scientific studies
