Introducing Our Blog

Virginia Brown - outside

  Welcome to our new blog!



Dear Friends,

Our blog is a forum for sharing more personal stories about “healthy living in a wired world”. We would like to get to know you better, and share with you some ideas about having a balanced life- those we get from reading great books, watching videos, and life experiences. Together, we can have some interesting conversations!

Isn’t it odd that technology is a rather weird combination of incredible convenience- and incredible illnesses!  One of our core topics is how to cope with the very large side-effect of computers, cellphones and wireless networks – namely “electromagnetic radiation”. We might as well use the technology that is creating the problem to offer solutions to the downside of it.

Another issue that we’d like to address is stress. When I was in my teenage years I volunteered as a “candy striper” in our local hospital. Illness and sickness were pretty much worlds apart when I was a kid. Aside from colds and the flu, my memory is that most people who were not in a hospital felt just fine. Today it is expected that people will have a range of symptoms starting with stress, headaches, brain fog and ending with cancer. Why is that? Why are we all in such a hurry? How can we learn to view the world to maximize our happiness?

Our blog is a place where we want to share how to bring peace and health into our busy lives. We thing the two are connected. We welcome your comments to our musings. In today’s world, no one person has a monopoly on good ideas.

Our original mission, stated clearly on our brochures many years ago, was to make the world a better place. We reasoned that every time one more person wore a shield, that person would be more balanced. And the more balanced people we have, the more balanced the planet! That mission hasn’t really changed in our 21 years of providing Shields for all of you. So, in this blog, we invite you to share what makes the world a better place for you. We look forward to hearing from you.

All the best to you,
