– Two New Devices I've Found To Combat The Effects Of EMF: Device #1 (Somavedic)

If you tuned into my podcast entitled “The Non-Tinfoil Guide to EMFs: How to Fix Our Stupid Use of Technology (& The Real Research On WiFi Health, Cell Phones, Dirty Electricity & More!)“, then you're no doubt aware of the growing issue of being bombarded with WiFi, bluetooth, 5g signals and beyond. In today's roundup, I'm sharing with you two new devices I've been using to combat the damage and protect myself and my family.

The first is called a “Somavedic“. I've placed it in my office, where the majority of my electronics reside, and noted a significant rise in my heart rate variability (HRV) during the times I spend in my office. The Somavedic was designed based on 15 years of experience in the field of Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine, complementary medicine and related areas. It contains minerals, stones and metals, and a crystal corpus, and operates based on controlled release of energy frequencies from these minerals that can diminish “electro-smog.” I was skeptical, but won't argue with my consistently positive HRV results. You can check it out and read up on the science here. If you get brain fog or headaches or poor sleep and suspect it might be due to high EMF in your environment, it's worth a try.

– Two New Devices I've Found To Combat The Effects Of EMF: Device #2 (Blushield)

The next is Blushield EMF blocking devices, which come in several shapes and sizes – small enough to fit in a wallet (or in my case, my fanny pack) and also large enough to place on the floor of an office, bedroom, or other area of high electricity. Quite simply when you plug-in a Blushield or switch on a portable it starts emitting a symphony of frequencies within the human responsive range. The body will then respond to the Blushield products rather than your Wi-Fi, smart meter or mobile phone. This is called sympathetic resonance. Your body would much rather respond to natural frequencies than man made EMF, whatever shape or form they come in. Probably the handiest feature of Blushield, in my opinion, are the smaller devices you can easily slip into a wallet, purse, pocket, backpack, etc. For the past couple months, I always have mine flipped on in my pocket or fannypack or laptop bag when I'm on an airplane. You can click here to get one and use discount code BEN to save 10%.

Finally, since I know someone may ask, the two devices above work on different principles: one lowers EMF by “scrambling” the signals (the Somavedic) and the other blocks the EMF when placed close to your body (Blushield). I now own and use both.

Featured Product: Kion Clean Energy Bar

As a busy CEO, coach, professional athlete, international speaker, and top 100 podcast host—I needed a bar that would meet the intense demands of my lifestyle, while also satisfying my strict nutrition and purity requirements. I’m happy to say, THIS IS IT.

After years of habitually eating low-quality protein bars, I started having elevated blood sugar, gut rot, energy swings and toxins present in my blood tests. So I wanted to do something better.  I wanted to learn how can a bar provide adequate amino acids for recovery without spiking insulin and glucose, or creating mTor and longevity issues from excess protein intake?

You're about to discover exactly how I did it. Meet the Kion Clean Energy Bar.

  1. Kristof says:

    Hi can I use a blue shield plugin with an earthpulse during sleep safely in your opinion?

  2. Robin says:

    Hi, cool to see that there are solutions hitting the market. I’m curious about the Blushield: I read a bit into the science behind blushield and it seems to me that blushield is NOT blocking EMFs. Instead it is sending various frequencies in short bursts that seem to have a somewhat hormetic effect that seems to mitigate the damage of the always on wifi and stuff. Got this impression from the PDF that blushield sends out. They also do say something, that the effect of the radiation within the cells is blocked, which is probably what you are talking about, right? I did not see though how exactly this is supposed to work. It was a really long text though and I rather skimmed it. Does anyone know more about this? And can give me the short summary? How good is the scientific backing? This all kind of seems to good to be true.

    Also: The blood tests that they refer to at blueshield: Where can I get this done? What’s the price of this? (The test where they look at the shape of your red blood cells and the membrane thickness, crystallization and parasitic activity).

    Any help is very welcome and thanks for the article!

  3. D says:

    Hey Ben,
    Was wondering if you were able to do any testing on the blushield?
    Could you possibly do any “blind” tests with it?
    It seems like all the research on it is coming from somewhat sketchy sources, and I was super surprised to see such a recent article of yours endorsing it.
    I was really hoping this thing was the real deal, and will use your code, but I’d love to see some more research than what they have on their website…
    Any chance you could comment on your HRV experience with it, or with someone else and do a blind test?
    Doesn’t have to be super heavy scientific, just a normal one you would do to convince anyone with an open mind.


  4. Bryan says:

    Ben I was wondering which Somavedic you use currently and what you think the range is on these devices compared to the Blueshield? Also do you think it’s worth getting the mode that helps with structuring water? Thanks for all you do.

  5. Davo says:

    Hey Ben- VERY interested in learning more about EMF reduction/shielding options. Maybe recommendations for a highly-effective and US-available faraday bed canopy? Thanks!

    1. Davo says:

      After further researching the above two options, I feel these products may be a viable alternative to sleeping under an EMF protective canopy. I’m REALLY looking forward to hearing your follow-up review on these two products. I have an array of cell, cable and utility equipment located in a utility right-of-way right outside my bedroom window.

    2. Here are a couple of really good resources for you to check out: and

  6. Terry says:

    Hi Ben, I was interested in your thoughts on why you chose the somavedic device for your office instead of one of the blueshield devices?

    1. Mainly just experimenting right now… I use the Blushield to protect my body more directly from electronic devices and the Somavedic helps to lower overall exposure in the room that contains most abundant EMF producing devices.
