As we’re in the early stages of what’s being called the 5G revolution, it’s natural to wonder how to protect ourselves from potential risks associated with the technology. 5G is expected to bring about major developments, including remote robotic surgeries and citywide changes in services. It seems that these changes are imminent, so it’s important to educate ourselves on how to stay safe in the age of 5G.
Once we look into it, we can see that 5G is made up of three different types of towers, namely low band, medium band, and high-band (or millimeter-wave). From what I understand, the low band and medium band signals work in a similar way to 4G and other technologies we already have. It seems that while they could cause health concerns, they aren’t anything groundbreaking.
I personally think that the Millimeter-wave 5G operates at a much higher frequency compared to other technologies. Honestly, our knowledge about the impact of 4G exposure is limited, and we have even less understanding of the effects of exposure to frequencies in the high band 5G range.
5G technology is the latest development in wireless communication. It is designed to provide faster and more reliable connectivity for a range of devices, from smartphones to autonomous vehicles. However, the deployment of 5G has raised concerns about its potential impact on human health and the environment.
I’ve also covered this topic pretty extensively in my guides, 5G Radiation Dangers: The Complete Guide and 5G Technology Explained. They provide a helpful starting point for learning about 5G radiation and possible health impacts.
Because 5G is so prevalent, and the health impacts of exposure are so poorly understood, I may even feel a bit anxious. Fortunately, there are steps I can take to protect myself and my family, generally just by minimizing our exposure.
How to Protect Yourself From 5G
Here are a few things I can consider doing to protect myself and my family from 5G exposure:
Locate Towers In Your Area
One problem I see with 5G technology is that it’s still in its infancy. We, telecommunications companies, are still in the process of rapidly expanding our 5G networks, and, as a result, we’re building more towers all the time.
The best way to locate nearby towers is through the use of a 5G map such as Ookla. In our guide 5G Cell Towers Near Me, we dive further into how to use Ookla to find 5G towers in your area.
Choose Rural Over City Living
If you’re worried about the potential health risks associated with 5G, it’s worth considering where you live. When the 5G networks are fully developed, there will likely be fewer dead spots, especially in rural areas that are more widely covered by low-band networks. However, it’s still important to note that your overall exposure to 5G radiation in rural areas will still be lower than in densely populated cities with millimeter-wave towers nearby. So, if you want to minimize your exposure to 5G radiation, living in a rural area or the woods might be the better option in my opinion. Of course, this isn’t practical for everyone, and if you’re already established in a city, moving may not be an option. But if you’re planning your next move, you might want to consider a more rural area to reduce your exposure to 5G radiation.
Turn Off Your Cell Phone At Night To Protect Against 5G Radiation
Instead of using earlier-generation signals like 4G, all phones will eventually be connected to the 5G network or WiFi. Although giving up a cell phone may not be a realistic option, turning off your phone at night can decrease your exposure to RF-EMF radiation. Cell phones emit blue light which can disrupt sleep by affecting the natural production of melatonin. Sleep is essential for the body’s restoration, so it’s important to take steps to reduce exposure. If you need to keep your phone on, consider putting it across the room from you as you sleep like what always does.
Use A Protective Bed Canopy
If you want to keep your phone close to you at night, a bed canopy might be a great solution. Canopies can also protect you from radiation coming from nearby towers. These protective covers are usually made of mesh shielding material and attach to your ceiling at various points, draping down over your bed. For the canopy to work, it must completely cover your bed and be fully closed after getting into bed at night. Although they can be costly, bed canopies are one of the best ways to ensure that your body heals itself fully while you sleep. The last time I checked the market, there were many options available, including the BlocSilver EMF Shielding Bed Canopy, which is effective against frequencies up to 40Hz, well within 5G range. For more options, check out our EMF Bed Canopies guide.
Try Two Coats Of EMF Paint
If I have identified a 5G tower near my home, I can consider using EMF paint on the interior walls to protect myself from radiation. EMF paint is available in different types, some containing metal flakes and others without. Even a single coat of this paint can be effective, although some manufacturers suggest applying two coats for additional protection.
YShield is a popular brand of EMF paint that contains a mixture of water, graphite, and carbon. It has a jet black color that can be easily covered up by another color of silicone-based paint if desired. One thing to keep in mind is that YShield’s paint is conductive and must be grounded by a licensed electrician. This is not a unique feature, however, as many other brands also require grounding.

Supplements To Protect Yourself From 5G
As part of my daily routine, I already take various vitamins and supplements. However, I recently learned that some of these supplements may also help my body repair itself from damage caused by 5G and other sources of EMF radiation. Since completely eliminating my exposure to EMF isn’t feasible, giving my body the tools it needs to heal is the next best option.
There are many different supplements that may provide relevant benefits. While ginseng has radioprotective abilities, it hasn’t been studied specifically for 5G. Melatonin, on the other hand, can combat the harmful effects of blue light exposure, and vitamin C has been shown to protect rats from EMF-related changes to liver enzymes.

Scatter Crystals Throughout Your Home
I’ve learned that crystals can be used as tools for healing and peace. Many people rely on them for various reasons, including detoxification. It turns out that certain crystals may also be helpful in protecting against 5G radiation. For example, moonstone may help with Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity symptoms, while amethyst could potentially increase the body’s ability to heal itself. Shungite is another crystal that is commonly used for EMF protection, especially in elite form. When purchasing shungite, it’s best to look for stones that are shiny and almost obsidian-like.

Clothing To Protect Against 5G Radiation
If I am frequently exposed to 5G radiation while I am out and about, I might want to consider wearing protective clothing. This can include a variety of items such as hoodies, pants, hats, and even underwear. While it may not be a complete suit, it can help to cover some of my more vulnerable areas.
An option to consider is the Anti-Radiation Cami Tank Top from OURSURE. This EMF protective clothing is made of a 100% silver-nylon blend and can be worn as a base layer or on its own.

Strengthening your body’s natural defenses
Lastly, I believe in the importance of maintaining overall health and well-being to better cope with potential 5G radiation exposure. Strengthening my body’s natural defenses involves:
- Eating a healthy diet: I make it a priority to consume a balanced, nutrient-rich diet that supports my immune system. By providing my body with the essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, I am better equipped to combat the potential effects of 5G radiation exposure.
- Staying hydrated: I drink plenty of water throughout the day to help my body flush out toxins and maintain optimal cellular function. Staying hydrated is essential for overall health and well-being, as well as reducing the potential impacts of EMF exposure.
- Engaging in regular physical activity: I ensure that I exercise regularly to maintain my overall health and well-being. Regular physical activity not only helps improve my cardiovascular health and immune system, but it also has been shown to have positive effects on mental health, which can be vital in coping with potential stressors related to 5G radiation exposure.
- Practicing stress-reduction techniques: Incorporating mindfulness practices, such as meditation and yoga, into my daily routine helps me manage stress and its impact on my health. Reducing stress levels is crucial for maintaining overall well-being and building resilience against potential health risks associated with 5G exposure.
