It all started four years ago, when we met, my partner Christian and me Elina. Already before we met, we both were willing to create something new. Christian’s wish always was to create something that would make the world a better place, whereas my wish was to have the opportunity to live in the healthiest way, and the idea about OnyxPro and products that protect from harmful electromagnetic radiation* was born. I was knowing some information about electromagnetic radiation already before, but as it happens in our very busy lives not always we manage to pay enough attention to some issues and to gain more understanding about them. Moreover, not always we want to believe in some issues as then we would need to change our habits, would need to adapt. Nowadays we are already living in the fast-changing environment and we need to be ready to adapt all the time and we are not looking for the things to make our life even more complicated. And then you read the scientific reports and listen to interviews with scientists (Klinghardt, 2017)**, who are warning you that your mobile phone to which you have been used so much and which makes your life so much more comfortable or WIFI that is surrounding you almost everywhere, which is so much convenient as you can be online everywhere is harmful to your health. Your first reaction, that just cannot be true. The people who are in their twenties and thirties have used this technology since they remember themselves and now it is said to endanger their health. The first natural reaction of course is, that it just cannot be truth. And why no one around us except scientists speak about it? Why we mostly do not hear it in the news, from government or from the people surrounding us? Can it be truth then at all? Should I pay attention to it all? Yes, it is very natural reaction. And still when we start to think about it, when we start to analyse and listen to the scientific studies we realise that there really is an issue to bother about. When we just start to think, why are we feeling tired, energy less after a day in our office. We all are trying to attribute it to big work load and too much stress. This all could be true but on the other hand should we really need to be so much tired after the working day that we do not have enough energy to spend a quality time with our families or do sports or other activities? We, Onyxpro team, started to look for the reasons why are we so tired and energy less. We sleep well, we eat healthy, but we do not have as much energy as much we would like to have for engaging in sport activities and maybe start more projects. We as most of the people today were living in wireless, online environment. Wireless Internet, mobile phones, Bluetooth mousses and keyboard as well as DECT telephone. As we were always looking for a healthier life style, we decided to check ourselves, what the scientists were claiming about mobile phone radiation. We bought a measurement tool and we were very negatively surprised how much all the equipment in our home was radiating. No wonder that working beside WLAN router maid me tired and energy less. Now we had a problem and we needed to find the solution for it. We found quite quickly the solution about our WLAN, mouse and keyboard, we cabled everything. We are switching WIFI off and phones on the flight mode during the night. This decreased radiation in our house partially. But the measurement tool stubbornly was not willing to stop to show radiation in our house. As electromagnetic radiation is travelling though the walls and windows, we received radiation from our neighbours and from the base stations, which were in the radius of 300m. Therefore, we needed to think further how to protect us and our family. This was the moment when the idea to create clothing and accessories that protects from electromagnetic radiation was born. In our next blog article, I will tell you how our protection clothes and other products are created and why they protect us so well.
*Electromagnetic radiation is radiation that is created by man-made electromagnetic fields. The sources of electromagnetic radiation include mobile phones, DECT phones, WIFI, Bluetooth, smart meters, radars and mobile phone base stations. Long term exposure of electromagnetic fields is harmful to life organisms, especially to pregnant women and children.
**The link leads to an interview with Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt MD, PhD, who is devoting his research to man-made electromagnetic fields and healing people affected and suffering from symptoms from exposure of electromagnetic radiation. Dr. Klinghardt explains that there are no particular people who are electrosensitive, he points out that we all are sensitive and there are no exceptions, when being exposed to electromagnetic radiation every single body is affected negatively. Doctor calls man-made electromagnetic fields the biggest health threat of our times.
