Well, today was finally the day that all the electrical work done by Oram Miller and Kent Haugan has come to fruition. I will be sleeping for the first time with some of the power off in my home in order to reduce the electrical fields. The magnetic fields have pretty much been taken care of except for some old copper pipes that I may switch out to PVC to create a dilectric (sp?) union. So, tonight, and the next few nights are the test to see if I sleep more soundly and wake up more refreshed! I had to move my bedroom completely in order to reduct the magnetic fields so there are a few factors coming into play but we shall see.
I really can't say enough about the work of building biologists. It is so fascinating yet so concrete. You see these electrical and magnetic levels go up and down on the measurement devices and you know with whatever physics background you possess (for me, that's high school level since I never took the college course) that this stuff is real. I firmly believe in my heart and in my scientific opinion that we could reduce multitudes of diseases if we were to embrace these concepts.

Later this evening I joined these two for a building biology meeting. Deanne Lange spoke to us about MCS (multiple chemical sensitivies). It was a very intriguing subject because a)most physicians will throw all sorts of anti-histamines, steroids, OTC cold and flu meds at patients instead of getting to the root of the problem and recognize that many of the products we use in our homes and offices are causing sensitivies and b)many common but ignored diseases (e.g. Lyme) are misdiagnosed as MCS (though I also believe they could be co-diagnosed).
Finally, we ended our night at Perkins (yes, Perkins). No, it certainly was not the healtiest of meals, but I did my best given the menu circumstances. I had the cod ("lightly battered", right, ugh) with glazed carrots and broccoli. My beverage was tea with lemon. I did a little chamomile and peppermint. It was nice. The dinner conversations were quite stimulating though also a little hectic at times. This sweet but intense 80 year old man sat with us. He was passing out photocopies of the BTD bookcovers like mad! He was swearing by it up and down and sort of scaring people. I backed him in his pursuit to some extent but he was so zealous that people rolled their eyes and didn't want to listen. He was underweight and that's what made people think physically he was going too far with food avoidance.
It's easy to do, (scare people), with the knowledge (not to mention better health) gained from D'Adamo's work. Word of mouth spread can be a double-edged sword. When people begin to read the books like gospel and miss out on life and celebrations and begin spreading the word the way zealots force their respective religions on others, people get turned off. People just think you are nuts.
The best way to get your point across on this is: lead by example. Show the world you are healthier, don't just tell. This could be through weight loss (or weight maintenance in my case), good lab results (cholesterol, etc.), lack of rx meds taken. Then, once you have physically proven your point, wait until someone asks how you do it. If you are able to scientifically articulate the logic of this lifestyle and the student is willing to listen, keep talking. If not, then in the words of a great fellow pharmacist from Long Island who is as blunt as your typical Italian-American New Yorker can be, "Shut your pie hole!"
