Mobile phone base stations / phone tower, wireless Internet and DECT cordless phones are just some of the major contributors to electromagnetic radiation ( EMR ) exposure in homes and businesses. EMR / EMF exposure is often closely associated with sick building syndrome.
Ecolibria specialises in emr consulting and can assist in testing your home and business and offer solutions that will reduce your exposure to EMR. Whether the solutions entail electromagnetic radiation shielding / emf protection from phone towers or exploring alternatives to the wireless technology currently being utilised, we can help.
Much controversy surrounds the variety of adverse health effects associated with EMR from mobile phone towers or mobile phone base stations. We can help to measure electromagnetic radiation exposure and provide protection from emf / emr.
Once again we are dealing with a very controversial field where so called “safe limits” based on thermal effects (how much parts of your body heat up) are far higher than Building Biologists and many health experts would like. It is important to realise that the standards that have been set are not based on biological effects (changes) and therefore there is no way of knowing what the long term health effects of EMR at these “safe limits” will be. These “safe limits” are so high that whenever electromagnetic radiation testing is conducted in homes the levels are always a fraction of the “safe limit” and are therefore deemed not to be a problem by telecommunication companies and some governments.
EMR and Health
Doctors in Germany have discovered similar health effects with their patients that have been exposed to EMR from wireless technology.
Health effects include:
- Sleep disturbance
- depressive mood
- learning difficulties
- difficulty finding words
- frequent infections
- lymph node swellings
- joint and limb pains
- nerve and soft tissue pains
- numbness or tingling and allergies
- hearing loss
- impaired balance
- hormonal disturbances
- thyroid disease
- night sweats
- frequent urge to urinate
- weight increase
- loss of appetite
- nose bleeds
- skin complaints
What is involved in having my home or business premises tested?
- A Building Biologist will personally discuss your specific concerns and requirements.
- A Building Biologist will visit your site at a time that suits you best.
- Digital readings are taken in all areas of the home or business using the latest technology meters from Germany.
- Each source of EMR is personally explained and solutions provided.
- If required shielding material is supplied and fitted / applied and readings are taken throughout this process to ensure excessive EMR exposure is eradicated.
- If required a formal written report detailing all readings and recommendations will be provided.
The difference between what is regarded as a safe Australian exposure standard and what is regarded as a safe Building Biology standard is explained.
