And onto this week’s show!

Nicole Bijlsma is a household name for the Low Tox Life community and in this week’s show we deep dive into the concerns over 5G technology and how you can protect your family. We also take a look at common questions about reducing your exposure to EMFs in the home – especially when you have solar, metal furniture or a steel roof. If you haven’t come across Nicole’s work before, you’re in for a treat.

Nicole is a woman of passion, and her passion lies in environmental medicine. Nicole was a former naturopath and acupuncturist with 15 years of clinical experience who changed her career pathway to become a building biologist after noticing a strong correlation with many of her patient’s illnesses and health hazards in their home. Nicole is the author of the bestseller Healthy Home, Healthy Family, was a columnist for Body+Soul (Herald Sun) and is frequently consulted by the media to comment on health hazards in the built environment.

Nicole has thirty years experience lecturing at tertiary institutions in nutrition, Chinese Medicine and environmental medicine, and has published in peer-reviewed journals. Her extensive knowledge in environmental medicine has seen her speak at various conferences both in Australia and abroad (USA, Thailand and New Zealand). Nicole single-handedly established the building biology industry in Australia, was the former President of the Australasian Society of Building Biologists and established the Australian College of Environmental Studies in 1999 to educate people about the health hazards in the built environment. The college is the only institution in Australia to provide nationally accredited training in Building Biology and Feng Shui. Nicole is currently completing her Ph.D. investigating health hazards in the built environment.

The questions I asked Nicole:

  • Any latest research on health impacts/lab studies yet coming through on 5G?
  • How these wireless technologies are accelerating damage in our cells / accelerating growth of fungi?
  • The effectiveness of running a 5G campaign/petition in one’s area: How do we cut through with something like this and actually create change at a health and safety regulation level? Is there anyone’s campaign we should particularly be supporting here or globally?
  • Navigating furniture choices (metal chairs/beds etc) / solar / steel roofs / is aluminum siding safe?
  • How to dull the EMF radiation from wifi modems if you have to use them… best materials to place around modems.
  • Does the NBN box produce radiation? Should we be trying to mitigate this also?

And we also covered a few other FAQs from the community on solar, Wifi, Metal roofing and furniture and where the healthy boundaries lie.
