finds that just about every tablet and cellphone exceeds safety limits by one and half to three and a half times when they're touching our bodies! That is justHUGE. Good thing this little guy is rockin' theStylus! Make sure your kids do too.
As we always say, distance is your friend when it comes to your devices. Keep it away from your head, out of your pocket, never tuck it into your bra, sleep with it under your pillow and for goodness sake, never, ever put your laptop on your lap without a big fluffy pillow. Exactly how far away is safe? The experts we've talked to agree that 12-18" is the distance that will reduce most of your dangerous EMF exposure.
Over 30 years of valid scientific studies have proven that we do have a biological reaction when we're exposed to high levels of EMF. Just like when you smell diesel fumes or pesticides-- The World Health Organization classifies cell phone radiation in the same category as those toxins, possible carcinogens.
So the next time you catch someone you love texting wildly, toss them a stylus- or if they have the phone next to their head, feel free hand them an headphone (air tube's are best) or encourage them to place the phone on Speaker Mode. When they roll their eyes--instead of thanking you--just say, "There I go again, taking care of your health and happiness. You can thank me later."

99% OF ONLINE STORES KEEP YOUR PERSONAL DATA FOREVER. AT TECH WELLNESS, WE DON'T.
Apple Says Privacy is A Basic Human Right. WE AGREE! Did you know that Tech Wellness does not sell or share your data? In fact, we exercise the option of ERASING OUR CUSTOMER DATA using our Shopify platform according to the European General Data Protection Regulation. And it's not easy. Because no one else does it, a one click button to erase everything has not yet been developed. That means that we erase each record one at a time and personally email every customer about the process. We do it because we value our customers and their privacy.
Approximately 6 months after a customer makes a purchase they will receive a note with the details. Customers can then exercise the option to have their data saved for re-orders should they decide.
Our mission is to help you thrive and live a blissful and balanced life by providing the information and resources you need to navigate your way through our Digital Age. It’s more important now, than ever before, to be a conscious consumer. To know how modern tech affects you both in safety and spirt.

August Brice, Founder, Tech Wellness and SaferTech. August’s passion is to bring mindfulness and balance to our relationship with technology. She began her wellness journey over 25 years ago, when as a young mother and the busy Co-CEO of a successful advertising agency, August developed symptoms which she later identified as electro-magnetic sensitivity or ES. That began her journey to learn more and share what she learned with others. Her first videos on the subject were published over a dozen years ago. She is a patent holder, along with Dr. Carlo on a device designed to protect users from the RF radiation put out by our smart phones. Unlike most other sites dealing with these topics, Tech Wellness vets all posts through a panel of world renowned experts and independently purchases and tests products that claim to offer protection. August’s mission is to be a trusted resource for people searching for balance with their technology.
