I’ve always sensed there was something inherently unhealthy about being exposed to electricity, long before I got into all this.
Are you with me?
I’m not talking about grabbing hold of a live wire.
I’m talking about something much more banal and closer to home.
The electricity in your home.
I guess the penny fully dropped when I read Dr. Samuel Milham’s book on dirty electricity.
I’m just talking about electricity which may even be ‘clean’. By clean I mean that all there is is the 60Hz (or whatever the frequency may be where you live) that the utility company supplies.
When you look at the research conducted by Dr. Milham you realize that even back at the beginning of the last century, electrification of our homes, workplaces, schools and lifestyles, had a lot to answer for.
The facts are there (in his book), a town or city gets electrified. You compare the mortality rates before and after. You don’t need to be a leading epidemiologist to figure out what’s happening.
But most people are not interested in drawing these kind of conclusions. Just like they’re not interested in drawing conclusions about the WiFi they’ve got in their homes or the cell phone they stick to their ear.
Progress is so seductive.
But I am interested and if you’re reading this you probably are too. Which is why I want to talk to you about a new device, which I believe can go a long way to protecting you.
Where is the place you absolutely must start if you want to protect yourself from electromagnetic fields?
Hands down, it’s in the bedroom. This article explains the whys and wherefores and also gives some detailed tips on what to do.
Once you’ve eliminated wireless sources, top of the list is eliminating electricity, or electric field exposures. Tip number 3 in my article is, “go to your electrical panel and cut the power supply on the circuit breaker for your bedroom before you retire for the night”.
Now this is a great idea, the only problem is that it can be a serious pain in the **** doing this. You might do it for a week or two but then after a few nights of getting all tucked up in bed and then realizing that you need to go back downstairs in your nightie to flip the switch on the bedroom circuit, you soon stop doing it.
I found a solution for doing this by getting an electrician to install a demand switch. This is a brilliant little device that automatically cuts the power to the circuit as soon as you switch your light off. If you live in Europe then you can still buy this from Gigahertz solutions (I’m told they no longer produce these devices for the North American market).
If you live in the US or Canada there is now another solution. It’s a Remote Cutoff Kit. That’s to say a ready-to-install kit that contains everything you need to remotely cut the power to circuits in your home. So you can crawl under the covers and and just press a button to cut the power in the bedroom.
Not just in the bedroom this kit allows you to cut the power on 4 circuits, you can even add contactor switches for more circuits.
Why Would You Want To Add More Circuits?
I recommend cutting the power on the circuits on bedrooms and rooms close to bedrooms. I think the basic kit will suffice for most people but if you’ve got lots of bedrooms then to do this properly you would need some extra contactors.
Why Would You Want To Cut Non-Bedroom Circuits?
What we’re trying to avoid here is sleeping near to circuits which are electrified. Because even if everything is switched off in your bedroom, the circuits are still electrified. Which means you will still be sleeping in proximity to an electric field.
Same goes if you cut the power on your bedroom but underneath your bedroom is your office or another room where there are live circuits. That’s why you would want to cut power on nearby rooms. The only circuit you wouldn’t really want to cut the power on is the refrigerator or freezer circuit.
The solution I use works automatically which is great. Whereas the remote kit I’m talking about here uses a remote transmitter to send the signal. This means when you press on the button to switch on or off the circuit there is some RF exposure, which might not suit everybody.
Here’s a summary of the pro’s and con’s.
The big pro is that at the flip of a switch this device can eliminate electric fields and dirty electricity from any room you want to. The other pro’s are:
- Relatively inexpensive (especially at the moment because it’s on sale at a discounted introductory price*)
- Requires no costly re-wiring or electrical work
- Can easily be adapted to work on multiple circuits
- No need to unplug or switch off devices in the bedroom
- Small amount of RF exposure to activate and de-activate
- It’s not automatic – you do have to think to use it
- It needs to be fitted by an electrician – not really a con, just common-sense advice
If the RF exposures are a problem then you can modify it to make a wired solution.
Where Can You Buy The Remote Kit?
You can buy the remote kit from this website and what’s more it’s currently on sale at a discounted introductory price*. I’ve not tried this system myself but I have spoken to Shaun who developed this system I do believe this kit offers a reliable low cost solution to this common problem.
