HOW DOES SILVER CLOTHING WORK?
Positively - charged silver ions create a conductive field that reflects man-made electromagnetic radiation away from the body. Silver ions also eliminate bacteria by binding to their negatively charged oxygen receptors— preventing colds, reducing blemishes and soothing, skin sensitivities. Silver’s conductive properties also improve temperature balance, circulation and reduce inflammation.
WHY WEAR SILVER CLOTHING?
Leading scientists have described man-made electromagnetic radiation as one of the largest human health experiments ever conducted-- “the cigarettes of the 21st century.” It produces changes in nearly every bodily function studied so far– central nervous system, cardiovascular, endocrine, and reproductive. In 2011, the WHO classified cell phone radiation as “possibly carcinogenic,” and urged individuals to adopt the “precautionary principle.” But even without this scientific knowledge, many of us sense the effects of increased technology: daily stress, fatigue, discomfort, sleep disturbances, and ‘information overload.’
What’s more, modern-day cities present many other challenges– new germs, air, noise and light pollution, and decreased habitats. As our environment changes, everyday solutions are needed to enhance our ability to adapt to the time.
More about EMF Radiation: In 2011, the WHO classified cell phone radiation as a category 2 carcinogen, in the same category as lead and exhaust, and urged individuals to adopt the “pre-cautionary principle.” Numerous independent scientists have gone on to confirm the harmful effects of man-made electromagnetic radiation on nearly every bodily function so far studied, including the central nervous, cardiovascular, endocrine, and growth control systems, with both short-term health consequences and long-term risks of cancer and disease.
Martin Blank, PHD, Associate Professor and Researcher at Columbia University, summarizes the impact as follows: “Cells in the body react to EMFs as potentially harmful, just like to other environmental toxins, including heavy metals and toxic chemicals. The DNA in living cells recognizes electromagnetic fields at very low levels of exposure; and produces a biochemical stress response. The scientific evidence tells us that our safety standards are inadequate, and that we must protect ourselves from exposure to EMF due to power lines, cell phones and the like, or risk the known consequences.” (http://www.bioinitiative.org/media/).
Some of the main concerns include stress, disrupted sleep cycles, impaired sexual function and sperm health, cancer, Alzheimer's, and many others.
The safety standards and guidelines provided by the cell phone industry are both inadequate and poorly communicated: The iPhone user manual recommends that users keep their phone at least iPhone at least 10 mm away from their heads, while laptop computers and tablets are recommended to be kept at least 20 cm away from the body—which is physically impossible for most children and contrary to the typical ‘laptop’ use implied by the product. Furthermore, the industry standards are developed on a mannequin that approximates a 6-foot, 200 pound subject.
Many of the studies that discount the dangers of cellphone use are either industry funded and technically flawed.
Lastly, I will say that regardless of scientific confirmation, many individuals experience the day to day damage of excessive computer and cell phone use, exhibiting symptoms of what is now being called “e-sensitivity,” that includes fatigue, depression, anxiety, and loss of attention.
WHEN SHOULD I WEAR SILVER CLOTHING?
Products can be used on a daily basis to maintain health, or during times of particular stress or decreased immunity to restore balance.
In addition to their functional benefits, products serve as tools for creating space in the midst of our highly connected, fast-placed lives -- supporting practices such as sleep, meditation, focused work or study. When used intentionally for these purposes, their benefits for mental and physical health are even further amplified.
WHERE TO WEAR SILVER CLOTHING?
Silver is best worn over areas of the body that are more sensitive and exposed to environmental toxins: i.e. the head, the reproductive organs and the hands/wrists are all highly sensitive areas that are frequently exposed to radiation and germs. In general, clothing is designed to be an additional layer to your existing wardrobe, like taking a vitamin to your meal.
WHO SHOULD WEAR SILVER CLOTHING?
Silver is most beneficial for individuals that are either more exposed to urban environmental toxins, such as frequent travelers, urban professionals or heavy tech users; or individuals that are more sensitive to urban environmental toxins, such as children, elderly, or people with immune deficiencies. The clothing can also be worn purely for its comfort and beauty.
HOW LONG DOES SILVER CLOTHING LAST?
The functionality of the fabric lasts for up to 250 washes. The fabric may tarnish over time and vary in color from garment to garment, due to the unique crystalline structure of each silver molecule and their interaction with other elements in the environment. These changes do not impact the functionality of the fabric and returns will not be taken for color or material changes.
WHAT IS YOUR RETURN POLICY?
