Recent EMF News:
New: I have added several new pages to this website, covering topics that come
up in my daily work as an EMF consultant. They include,
Healthy Lighting Choices,
EMFs in Cars,
Car Rooftop Cell Phone Antennas, and substantially updated information on the
Safer Use of Computers page. This includes new information on how to connect an iPad to
the Internet while in Airplane mode (therefore no radio frequencies) using a series of adapters and USB and Ethernet cables.
Oram's list of recommended Southern California tradespeople (electricians, plumbers) for EMF mitigation is available here.
A healthy new building manual, "Breathing Walls," is available here.
Welcome to the website for Create Healthy Homes
We are dedicated to improving the impact that buildings have on the health of you, your family and your employees. Use this site to find ways to make your home and office more healthy.
We offer environmental home and office evaluations, focusing on EMFs. We also consult on ways to design and build a healthy new home and office or remodel an exisiting one to avoid EMFs.
On-site EMF evaluations are available in the Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego areas of Southern California. Telephone and Skype consultations are also available for clients throughout the US and Canada, and worldwide.
"EMF" (electro-magnetic field) evaluation and mitigation is our specialty, based upon the protocols taught by the Building BiologyTM profession. These include evaluation and mitigation of AC electric and magnetic fields from house wiring, redundant neutral paths ("wiring errors"), and unwanted electric current on grounding paths.
We also measure potentially harmful radio frequency fields from cell phones, cordless telephones, Wi-Fi (wireless Internet) routers, smart meters, tablets and e-Readers, and nearby cell towers. We emphasize strategies that include client education, reduced use, increased distance and workable "hard-wired" alternatives to wireless devices in order to provide portability and fast, secure telephone and Internet service without exposure to potentially harmful radio frequencies. Harmful harmonic frequencies from so-called "dirty electricity" are also discovered and mitigated.
We also provide consultations for healthy new home design and construction to clients locally and throughout the country. Click on Services for the full range of services that we offer.
Healthy, nontoxic building materials are recommended from such retailers as Green Building Supply, who offer everything from low- and no-VOC paint to nontoxic flooring, countertops and furniture to customers nationwide.
Our healthy building EMF evaluations identify and reduce household causes of fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and chemical sensitivities. Over sixty percent of our clients already have sensitivity to electromagnetic fields, and two-thirds of them are symptomatic. Almost all report improvement once the sources of EMFs in their home have been identified and reduced.
The remaining forty percent of our clients are not sensitive or symptomatic but consult with us to make their homes more healthy and keep these problems from developing in the first place.
Click on Comments from Clients to read unsolicited reports from clients who have improved from having a healthy home EMF evaluation.
You can also click on Comments from New Building and Remodeling Clients to read reports from clients who have had us consult on the design, building and/or remodeling of their new or existing home in a healthy, safe way.
Learn about Building BiologyTM and the International Institute for Bau-biologie and Ecology, the institute that certified Oram, in the About section. This covers the profession's history, what it provides, and why people choose Building BiologistsTM to help them create a healthier home and work place. You can also view downloadable information from the Institute's website, and learn how you can take online courses as well as become trained as a practicing Building BiologistTM.
To support our position that exposure to Electro-Magnetic Fields (EMFs) is harmful and that currently accepted safe levels of exposure are too high, click on "Cell Phone and Radio Frequency Risks." That page links to websites with current research on biologically-based, non-thermal adverse health effects from long-term exposure to wireless communication devices from information-carrying radio frequencies from cell phones, cordless telephones, laptops, tablets, and wireless internet routers (Wi-Fi).
A separate page has been created dealing specifically with the topic of smart meters.
We also offer a healthy new building manual, compiled by Oram in collaboration with George Swanson, BBEC, builder and Building BiologistTM in Austin, Texas, and Wayne Federer in Wisconsin. The manual provides healthy protocols for the design and construction of new buildings and the healthy remodeling of existing ones. It is based upon protocols taught by the International Institute for Bau-biologieTM and Ecology (IBE) in Clearwater, Florida. You can order a copy by linking to our website, www.breathingwalls.com.
All services provided are based upon the twenty-five Principles of Bau-biologieTM, the German word for "Building BiologyTM."
