A FEW WORDS ABOUT ME
Hello! My name is Dianne Elson I am the very proud mother of 4 adult children who are doing the best they can with the resources they have, in this journey we call life! I am also the Founder of Rest Assured Nth Qld and I am doing my best, with the resources and knowledge I have, to educate clients and the wider community regarding the adverse health effects of exposure to our everyday electricity and wireless telecommunications. How did I end up here, a far cry from being a mother of 4???
Once my children left home…I was searching for what it was I was supposed to be doing with my life (at the tender age of 52). My search led me to Feng Shui (Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese practice of interpreting our environment, and its laws, in order to live harmoniously and successfully in all areas of one’s life). Two of the subjects in Feng Shui led me to a burning desire to find out more. The first subject was Modern Feng Shui (which is the study of manmade influences on the environment in the home and looks at water sampling, air pollution, mould, chemicals in our personal and cleaning products, and electromagnetic fields.) The second was Geobiology (which is the study of earth energies and their influence on health, wealth, the home and garden). I was fascinated with this subject and I searched continually on the internet for other courses in the field. All the courses were overseas and cost an arm and a leg to attend. I eventually found an Austrian naturopathic clinic (Geovital Academy) who have an office in Melbourne, offering a course on Geobiology and Electromagnetic field testing and shielding. I booked in to attend this course in January 2014.
At the time I booked the course, I was experiencing some challenging health issues. I was studying up to 2–3 hours in the morning and going home for lunch feeling exhausted. I hardly had the energy to walk up a very slight incline to my unit, which I used to have no problem with earlier. I would have lunch and rest for about an hour and leave to continue studying for another 2-3 hours before coming home exhausted again. I was so tired. By the early evening, all I wanted to do was sleep. I would go to bed and I would just lay there, but I couldn’t sleep properly. If I did sleep it was for very short periods and I would be wide awake again. This really impacted my life as I loved to get up very early in the morning go for a walk down along the water and participate in Dawn Yoga. I had to turn off my alarm and stop doing the things I enjoyed in the morning in case I managed to fall asleep.
To top it all off, I started to have memory problems. I had what I call “brain fog”. I would be speaking to people and half way through my conversation I would stop mid-sentence as I completely forgot what I was saying. I found this extremely embarrassing. I also suffered from Anomia. Anomia is where you are speaking and you know the words you want to say, you can see them clearly, but you cannot get them from your brain and out of your mouth. A very disconcerting experience! I thought I was losing my mind.
You could say my life had changed. I had always considered myself healthy and prided myself on not having to visit the doctor except for the routine womens’ health business. I was feeling so very scared and concerned that I visited my Doctor. When I went back to get the results from my tests I feared the worst. Imagine my surprise when my doctor told me there was NOTHING wrong with me.
I walked out of the doctor’s surgery feeling even more scared and confused than when I walked in. I couldn’t understand what they were not picking up.
A couple of days later, I went down to Melbourne to do a four day intensive with Geovital. While I was in Melbourne doing the course, I had no trouble sleeping, my energy picked up and my memory had improved. Funnily enough it wasn’t until I came back to Townsville and started studying that my symptoms returned. It was then I realised that I was fine when I was in Melbourne.
I realised – in a crashing realisation - it had to be something in my environment. After being away and learning the symptoms of exposure to EMFs I put two and two together and I consider myself extremely lucky that I worked out myself what was wrong, this may never have happened had I not removed myself from the environment that was causing me so much grief.
Other little signs for me were in 2004 – 2005 when I used a cordless phone and after being on the phone for a period of time my ear would burn and turn bright red. I knew this wasn’t good and started to use speaker phone when I could. This also happens when I use a mobile phone. In 2012 I started using a tablet while sitting on the lounge. Each time I used the tablet I would get heart palpitations.
After suffering these adverse health effects from this exposure, I wanted to learn as much as I could. I found the most comprehensive course of Electrobiology (the study of Electromagnetic radiation/fields (EMR/EMF) and their impact on health) in Australia through the Australian College of Environmental Studies and went on to study in depth about EMFs.
My exposure to EMF had a huge impact on me. I know what it is like to feel fit, vibrant and healthy and also what it feels like to feel awful.
I can only express what is happening to me now because of a comprehensive review and reflection about myself, which really did take a lot of effort. So in all of this, it has got me thinking, what about children – and babies???
What could the health effects of EMFs do to their little bodies? When they are exposed from the beginning of their lives (unlike older people like myself).
We see so many health concerns with children these days – that go largely unexplained. Could there be a link between the two? From my study and experience with clients, I certainly think so.
When the answer to solving some cases can be as simple as reviewing which way a child’s bed is facing, why would we not explore its possibilities?
Through my own ill-health, I’ve come to know the effects EMFs can have on our body.
If you or your child suffers from ill-health or you’d simply like to educate yourself on the potential unseen health hazards in our homes, then why not give me a call?
I offer one on one conversations to talk further about your health and your home environment, and I also offer in-home assessments that can measure the possible exposure to EMF in your child’s bedroom and your shared spaces.
I also facilitate a number of workshops to share this information as well.
