Kiwis not sleeping well puts anti-radiation chips in high demand

High demand for electromagnetic radiation neutralising chips in New Zealand is being fuelled by Kiwis who want to remedy the fact that they are not sleeping well, without having to give up their smartphones.

National electronics retailer Sales Concepts, which represents India’s massively successful CONCEPT® Envirochip® (a patented radiation harmoniser) in New Zealand, said the best thing Kiwis struggling with impaired sleep could do is buy an alarm clock for Christmas.

“We’re finding that substantial demand for the Concept® Envirochip® is being driven by New Zealanders who are sleeping less and struggling with poorer quality sleep. However, as we tell our customers, electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) is not the only culprit,” says national sales manager Ajit Srivastava.

“Habits like sleeping with your phone next to your bed, because it doubles as an alarm clock, and waking up in the middle of the night to check Facebook don’t help – our devices are becoming a bit like a tobacco addiction. We’re also finding that many Kiwis are using sleep-monitoring apps on their smartphones, which is a bit self-defeating.

“Possibly the biggest disrupter of sleep is using your device before bed and during the night. Most smartphones and tablets are powered by LED light, which is a blue light that has a stimulating effect on the body – it’s the kind of light that tells your body to wake-up, it's daytime.”

He said that while bad habits must shoulder a large part of the blame, EHS is also a factor affecting sleep quality and the situation is exacerbated because nighttime is also when most people choose to charge their devices.

“The transformer plugged into the wall releases substantially more electromagnetic radiation than your device. So the levels of electromagnetic radiation released by both the transformer and your device next to your body make the environment pretty unhealthy.”

Mr Srivastava said even people who do not believe that electromagnetic radiation from their mobile devices can cause cancer now or in ten years time, don’t know that there is additional evidence supporting the fact that the radiation affects the electrical activity in the brain, according to research by the Illawarra Health and Medical Research Institute in Australia this year.

“The research about the harmful influence of our mobile devices is rapidly becoming overwhelming, despite what the naysayers put out. Electromagnetic radiation is at least causing headaches, mood swings and interrupting viral sleep patterns.”

The company introduced the Concept® Envirochip® to New Zealand earlier this year after family friends of one of the director’s were able to conceive after years of trying, because they tackled the high levels of electromagnetic radiation in their home.

“India has a proud history of alternative medicine, having introduced the natural healing system of Ayurveda and also yoga to the world. We see the Concept® Envirochip® as a natural extension of that proud tradition,” Mr Srivastava said.

The Envirochip's technology – which disrupts the constant flow of electromagnetic radiation – was originally developed by Syenergy Environics Ltd in India. The company developed the technology on site at India’s State-owned Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd (BPCL), more than six years ago, when they were called in to correct high electromagnetic radiation levels at the plant.

The Concept® Envirochip® is designed to disrupt the constancy of the radiation so that it becomes non-bio-effective for the human body, without reducing the signal strength or quality from the device.

Mr Srivastava said there was several steps people could take to improve their sleep:

  • Keep your smartphones, tablets and laptop computers far away from the body when you sleep, preferably in another room
  • Do not use your devices at least an hour before bed and not at all during the night
  • Do not charge your devices near your body
  • Use a wristband activity tracker to monitor your sleep rather than keeping your smartphone on your bed with you

“Recent research titled ‘Natural Sleep and Its Seasonal Variations in Three Pre-industrial Societies’ shows that it is not necessarily the amount of sleep we get, but the quality of sleep that counts.

“We also know that six out of ten Kiwis are complaining that they are not sleeping well – it doesn’t take much to figure out that if the problem is the amount of sleep we’re getting, it must be something new, like the proliferation of electronic devices and also the bad habits they are cultivating,” Mr Srivastava said.
