Earthing our Homes ~grounded floors?

In the previous post we mentioned we would expand on the concept of Earthing in our homes.  As curious designers we ordered a continuity tester from to determine if our floors Continue Reading →

EMF’s and Grounding ~Earthing

The concept of Earthing is a recent development.  The book “Earthing, The most important health discovery ever?” shares the process of discovery and development of the concept of Earthing, or reconnecting one’s Continue Reading →

More on EMF’s, RF, Radiation, WiFi, etc. and our health

Recently, we heard another interview about the effects of EMF and Radiation on KPFA.  The audio will be available for the next 2 weeks.  Thank you Your Own Health And Fitness for bringing this to our attention!

Program description: “Forty year electromagnetic field researcher Martin Blank PhD, discusses his book Overpowered, which outlines what science tells us about the health effects of wireless and offers guidelines for prudence while using devices.”

Interview available free for a limited time:

Another interview on EMF in buildings from show 4/14/15 available for a limited time:


“Martin Blank deals with a difficult subject in a scientifically accurate but easily readable fashion. He covers everything from powerlines, to cell phones, to light bulbs, to conflicts of interest, with humor and passion. In this great scientist, we have an unlikely activist and truth teller.”—David O. Carpenter, M.D., Director, Institute for Health and the Environment, University at Albany

Potential related illnesses:

  • Cellular stress, DNA damage, free radicals, gene damage, leading to 
  • Cancer risk increase
  • Increased male infertility
  • Reproductive health risk via prenatal exposure
  • Increased cases of ADHD
  • In children: Increase in headaches /migraines, hearing loss, ADHD

Cell phone radiation is currently a hot topic and this interview emphasizes the impact of the entire EMF range, including light bulbs and their effect on the wiring in our homes.  In his book “Overpowered” he provides a remedy for our homes and beyond.

While both Laurie and I have purchased the Pong case (referenced earlier) for our cell phones, I sent an email to Safe Space Protection to inquire about their alternate method of creating a harmonizing field. Current thinking is that it may be wise to use both, for now.

We’ll share more as we dig in deeper on this important subject.  We’re very interested in the technology that is said to balance the radiation field, rendering it harmless.  The Pong case redirects the radiation, towards the backside of the phone.  One can actually feel the heat building on the backside of the phone when in use.  So, it’s advised to use ear buds, or some other device to keep the phone away from our bodies.

Our long term goal in this research is to discover the issues faced in the home and how to reduce or eliminate the potential hazard in our residential design work.

Electro Magnetic Field and It’s Potential Effect

In a recent radio interview, host Layna Berman interviewed Dave Stetzer about the effects of electro magnetic fields in our buildings and how it effects our health.  …and what we can do about it!  It really attracted our attention as home designers so we wanted to learn more and share.

Layna’s website holds a vast library of interviews and research regarding alternate means of health maintenance.  If interested, follow this link to learn more:  Layna Berman:  A critical, independent voice on the politics and practice of health with Layna Berman and Jeffry Fawcett, PhD.

Unfortunately her archive is only available for a fee, so we can’t link to it.  If you can afford it, we recommend.

For now, and to further our understanding of the effects of EMF’s, here’s a link to a video from Dave Stetzer on this topic:  You can link over to others of his from there to learn more.

Here’s a link to his information laden website:

And a direct link to his products:

Another company we’re interested in is SafeSpace, founded by Joyce Culkin:  Here, too, is a vault of valuable information.

As we learn more about the effects of modern materials and methods it’s best we continue to observe their impact and adjust accordingly for a healthy life.  For now, here are a few links to products we’ve been looking at for EMF shielding:

Phone shielding products:

 Honestly, we are just now becoming aware of these potential health issues and have a lot to learn and understand before we’ll be fully satisfied we’ve found a solution.    The best advice we can offer is to be aware, research and come up to speed regarding these issues, then apply the appropriate solution for the given situation.  We’ll add more articles here as we learn more.
