What are Electro-Magnetic Fields?
Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) and Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) are made up of a combination of electric waves and magnetic waves. EMFs are produced wherever there is an electrical current. Basically any appliance, tool or object powered by an electrical current emits a certain level of EMF. Home appliances such as refrigerators, TVs and computers emit comparatively large amounts of EMF, the microwave an even larger amount. However, unknown to most is the fact that the highest potential for increased health risk from EMF exposure comes from conventional personal heating products, such as a common electric blanket.
Shield Life’s pioneering EMF shielding technology can be explained using lightning as an example:
Principle: When lightning strikes, thunder and light disappear, but the electric power (energy) itself is a strong electromagnetic wave and is drawn to the lightening rod where negative electric potential is spread around and absorbed into the ground (earth) through the rod.
Application: A copper net on the floor, connected with the electric ground terminal using the previously mentioned principle of the lightning rod, the copper net pulls the negative electric potential from the ground as the lightning rod does, thereby absorbing/eliminating EMF.
With Shield Life, Rest Assured
Shield Life's patented shielding technology eliminates virtually all EMF and EMI, while creating a warm, comfortable sanctuary in your home. While most generic heating pads or electric blankets are made of a single electric wire, Shield Life state-of-the-art three-layered heating element wire is at the core of the EMF shielding technology. First, two of the most advanced heating element wires are carefully cross-wound to offset the harmful EMF. Then, our patented and continuous heat sensing wire is wrapped around the dual heating element to create the safest heat sensing system available. Finally, a copper wire mesh is placed over the three-layer heating element to withdraw residual EMF and suppress the growth of bacteria and germ, helping reduce odors.
The Shield Life Patented Heat Sensing wire gives an added measure of safety; reducing the risk of fire through the use of a the three layer heating element wire that serves as a temperature sensor. Competitors’ products place over-heating sparingly, increasing the potential for delayed accident prevention, jeopardizing the user. The patented safety features detect four differing characteristics to ensure constant vigilance.
Heat Sensing Wire Continuously Checks for:
- Connection Error
- Heating wire error
What Are Government Studies are Saying?
National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences:
"The NIEHS agrees that the associations reported for childhood leukemia and adult chronic lymphacicytic leukemia cannot be dismissed easily as random or negative findings...the evidence suggests passive measures such as a continued emphasis on educating both the public and the regulated community on means aimed at reducing exposures are beneficial.
California Department of Health Services:
"To one degree or another, all three of the DHS scientists are inclined to believe that EMFs can cause some degree of increased risk of childhood leukemia, adult brain cancer, Lou Gehrig’s Disease, and miscarriage.“
Department of Energy:
"It has now become generally accepted that there are, indeed, biological effects due to field exposure.“
Environmental Protection Agency:
"In conclusion, several studies showing leukemia, Iymphoma and cancer of the nervous system in children exposed to...electrical power frequency exposures, show a consistent pattern of response that suggest a causal link.“
- Far Infrared Heat
Benefits of Far Infrared Heat
- Infrared is an invisible band of light that you feel as heat through conversion, whereby far infrared heat (FIR) penetrates organic tissue, such as the human body, without affecting the ambient temperature.
- An example of such an effect is when a cloud obscures the sun, you suddenly feel cooler, but the air temperature around you has not had time to be affected. The cloud blocked the sun's infrared rays from penetrating your body. Most pain medications simply disrupt the body's pain signals to the brain, masking the body's ability to recognize pain, rather than addressing the source or cause.
- The Shield Life Family of Products provides effective, non-invasive, non-addictive pain relief with no side effects. By using FIR heat as opposed to traditional heating methods, the heat penetrates deeper into your body without the discomfort of traditional or pharmaceutical side-effects.
FIR Heat offers a variety of proven health and beauty benefits:
- increase blood circulation, oxygen levels and white blood cells;
- stimulate the production of collagen (a building block for human tissue); and
- helps to rid your body of toxins.
All resulting in a stronger immune system, better cardiovascular health, and a shorter healing period. FIR Heat Therapy can also be used as a beauty treatment helping heal scars, wounds, and cuts. It also smoothes your skin's texture, lessens coarseness, and reduces pore size.
The deep penetration of FIR Heat Therapy into soft tissue and makes it an ideal source of arthritis pain relief. Athletes and the elderly benefit from an effective, non-addictive means of warming and loosening sore muscles and stiff joints. Those who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, ALS, Lou Gehrig's Disease, and Parkinson's Disease can enjoy an easy-to-use form of pain relief. In addition to removing toxins from your body, FIR Heat Therapy serves as a means of weight loss and cellulite reduction for those who cannot exercise due to health concerns or mobility issues.

- Negative Ions
Benefits of Negative Ions
Ions are charged particles, either positive or negative, that attain a charge through the loss or gain of electrons. A positive ion has fewer electrons than protons, resulting in a net positive electrical charge. Negative ions contain additional electrons, which provide a negative electrical charge. Essentially odorless, tasteless and invisible molecules, they can be observed in everyday interactions such as static electricity. However, this common particle can contribute to an improvement in overall health and wellness.
Have you ever felt refreshed while hiking through the woods or after having spent a day at the beach? This is due in large part to the elevated level of negative ions that are present in forests, beaches, waterfalls and other natural water sources. Negative ions have been reported to contribute to positive changes in mood and behavior. Another way that negative ions help promote greater heath is through reducing the air of dust, pollen and other domestic air borne pollutants. Through the simple act of breathing in negative ions, you can facilitate an increase in metabolism and circulation, all major contributing elements to a better nights’ rest and relief.
