Cell phone-less night with consequences

Because young people in particular cannot separate themselves from their cell phones even at night, they suffer from sleep disorders. However, the fact that many people are constantly exposed to cell phone radiation, even at night, causes even more problems.

Many young people leave their cell phone next to their bed at night. Their sleep suffers as a result. Like “20 minutes” reported that the number of newly admitted patients aged 12 to 25 at the KSM Sleep Medicine Clinic in Bad Zurzach rose from around 50 to over 60. Blog post from the Clinic for Sleep Medicine – impair the recognition of feelings in other people. Nowadays, it is assumed that emotions are regulated during sleep, so acute sleep deprivation increases the risk of depression and leads to a more negative emotional response. Numerous studies have already proven the influence of disturbed sleep on information processing in the brain.

Smartphones turn night into day
Smartphones are handy, multifunctional and are taking the everyday lives of young people and children by storm. According to a report on, a research group from the Faculty of Psychology at the University of Basel investigated in 2012/2013 whether there is a connection between evening electronic use and depressive symptoms in 362 underage adolescents and whether these are mediated by shortened sleep time, falling asleep and sleeping through the night. In addition, she compared young people with smartphones with those who only had a simple cell phone [8]. The Basel study showed that young people with smartphones used more electronics in the evening. The data analysis revealed a correlation between evening electronic use and shorter sleep duration, increased sleep disorders and depressive symptoms. A regression analysis of the data showed that the relationship between evening electronic use and depressive symptoms is mediated by sleep disturbances.

Learning to sleep again?
A Swiss cohort study (HERMES study), also conducted in 2012/2013, attempted to assess the cumulative daily exposure to radiofrequency radiation in 439 adolescents between the ages of 12 and 19 and to record possible negative health effects in connection with the use of cell phones and radiation exposure. The young people surveyed stated that they spent an average of 17 minutes a day on their cell phone and nine minutes on their cordless phone at home. The young people used their cell phones for 40 minutes for Internet applications, of which eleven minutes were via mobile phone and 30 minutes via WLAN. In addition, they surfed wirelessly via computer/laptop/tablet for an average of 1 hour. The smartphone was worn close to the body for 4.4 hours. 70 percent did not turn off their smartphone at night. 21 percent were woken up at night at least once a month by a message, of which 67 percent responded. The HERMES study showed, among other things, that night-time cell phone use is associated with significantly more headaches, tiredness, fatigue and reduced well-being. The research group suggests that young people should be taught better sleeping habits with regard to cell phone use.

Disturbed learning process?
According to, a group of researchers in Zurich investigated the effect of cell phone exposure on sleep-dependent learning processes. This is because it is known that evening or night-time cell phone radiation influences the sleep EEG in the slow-wave (< 4.5 Hz) and spindle frequency range (12-15 Hz), which is relevant for sleep-dependent learning processes [14]. The young people had to complete a learning task in the evening. Throughout the night, they were exposed to a pulsed mobile phone signal with SAR values of 0.15 W/kg. In the morning, they had to solve the same learning task again. Under exposure, the brain waves typical of sleep-dependent learning processes were altered and the sleep-dependent improvement in performance was reduced in the morning. In the HERMES study mentioned above, the adolescents with the highest levels of radio exposure apparently exhibited a reduced short-term memory over the longitudinal course.

Confused sleep-wake rhythm

People have their own sleep-wake rhythm, which can be disrupted by the light from smartphones and tablets. At the University Psychiatric Clinics (UPK) Basel, Christian Cajochen’s team is investigating this rhythm in humans. The work of Cajochen and others helps to understand social changes, because we now live in a “multiscreen online society”, as he puts it. Young people spend around 53 hours a week in front of screens and are exposed to a light spectrum that is not found in nature or in existing lighting technology. This could shift the wake-sleep rhythm and lead us to a constantly overtired society. There are now cell phone apps that adapt the lighting spectrum to the time of day.

“Blue light like espresso”
However, according to his report on the University of Basel website, Cajochen was also able to identify an interesting effect of blue light on mental performance. To do this, test subjects had to learn new words in the evening and then recognize them correctly later. People who studied under the light of LED monitors achieved a success rate of 60 percent. Those who studied under a non-LED monitor achieved just under 50 percent. The result could indicate that a low melatonin level in the evening has a positive effect on alertness. “Blue light is like an espresso,” says Cajochen. However, the effect was only short-lived. This is because the delayed release of melatonin has a side effect that makes people rather sleepy in the long term: the high proportion of blue light and the resulting later drowsiness apparently cause a shift in the day-night rhythm in the test subjects, who thus lose their rhythm.

Generate a harmonic oscillation field

How can you protect yourself from high-frequency radiation and electrosmog? “The law of resonance states that no resonances can occur in an oscillation field with oscillations whose frequencies lie outside those of the field,” says Richard Neubersch, owner of Swiss Harmony in Grellingen, a company that specializes in the harmonization of electrosmog. In other words: In a harmonic oscillation field, artificial radiation has no effect, regardless of who generates it, whether it comes from a neighbor or a nearby mobile phone mast. The mobile products from Swiss Harmony (BioRing, BodyCard, BioBracelet and the BioPatch) harmonize the human body by transmitting the harmonic vibration as information to the human energy system. This means that artificially created radiation fields can no longer resonate.

Protection from harmful radiation

In concrete terms, this means Products from Swiss Harmony for harmonizing houses and apartments ensure that the electricity that supplies a building with electricity receives a different message. “They transfer the information of the visible light spectrum to the passing current via the resonance path, which in turn distributes it throughout the entire effective range of the circuit,” explains Richard Neubersch. The electromagnetic field of the apartment or house thus becomes a harmonious field. In-house WLAN transmitters, cell phones or cordless phones are interference-free because they are connected to the harmonic current field and therefore emit the same harmonic information.
