Notes on my credentials to do EMF related work: I have a Certificate of Completion from the International Institute for Building-Biology® and Ecology IBE 212 and 312 Advanced Electromagnetic Radiation. This training is the most intense and complete on EMF testing and remediation, offered in the world. There is no electrical engineering school or home inspection program that approaches the level and depth of this training. The coursework includes the latest EMF scientific discoveries and on-going studies, EMF effects on health, the mechanics of electromagnetism, the physics of electromagnetism from the Earth’s DC Magnetic Fields through to all the types of ionizing nuclear radiation and electromagnetic interference. Training includes testing skills and hands-on techniques for using hand-held EMF meters, monitors and analyzers, oscilloscopes, spectroscopes, spectrum analysis, waveform analysis, computerized data-logging with time stamping, remediation techniques, the specifications and shielding abilities of the latest EMF mitigation materials and their application, the power grid from power plant to your home, home electrical systems, identifying and correcting electrical wiring errors, the latest knowledge on smart meters, testing smart meters for local governments, the coming 5G network, and more!
At this time, as far as I know, Mitch Marchand and I are the only two people associated with an EMF testing and consulting company, in the NYC area, (ELEXANA) who have this training. I hope that everyone doing this work in the New York City area will eventually receive this training so that the quality of EMF services for all New Yorkers will be elevated to a higher standard. (Here is a link to what is involved: IBE EMRS.) I am finally returning to Santa Fe, in April, to take IBE 213 Natural Healthy Building and Remodeling Practices to complete all the requirements towards certification as a Building Biologist® EMRS.
In addition to this training, I had already completed the EMF coursework taught by Michael Neuert, mechanical engineer, licensed electrician, and instructor @ The EMF Center, Santa Rosa, California. It was initially because of Michael’s support that I eventually went into this field of work, professionally. He has been a generous referral source.
I have also studied and learned from some of the best Electrical Engineers and Electricians in the world. These include Larry Gust, Spark Burmaster, William Holland, our own gifted and talented Ivan Butkovic, Master Electrician (licensed in NYC,) and our Chief EMF Consultant, Electrical Engineer, and Certified Building Biologist® EMRS Mitchell Marchand. Mitch, is also an instructor and lecturer for the IBE 312 Advanced Electromagnetic Radiation Course. You can read more about Mitch here: Mitch Marchand.
I have successfully conducted more than 1,000 EMF tests and can genuinely say that I love this work and have a passion for being extremely thorough. I have helped more than 100 clients heal their insomnia and other illnesses. Many times, this was accomplished by merely helping these clients reduce their exposure to the electromagnetic fields that were in their homes, present at the time I first tested.
I have been flown to provide EMF consultations from Falmouth, Maine to Miami, Florida. I have consulted with clients from New Zealand and Croatia to Mexico and California, from China and Russia to the Hamptons and Crown Heights. I have provided my services for Montefiore Hospital, Ecosystem Energy, and more. In addition to my referrals and endorsements from Michael Neuert, I have been referred by Dr. Sharon Goldberg, M.D., Internal Medicine, Rob Metzinger, Electronics Engineering Technologist & Instructor for all EMRS Building Biologists of North America, Lucas Taub, BSCE, MEME project manager for Ecosystem Energy, Curator HCP, Tennant Products, BNI ONE, Manhattan, and many more.
In the State of New York and other states, my OSHA training and certification permits me to enter job-sites to measure, my PMA license allows me to discuss EMF Health with clients in the USA and in 30 countries, my Lloyd’s of London certification allows me to enter residential homes and businesses as a professional to measure EMF and recommend remediation and mitigation, and my HIPAA compliance certificate helps clients feel more comfortable sharing how they feel and outline any and all of their health issue(s.) My 30 years of teaching experience helps me explain the different types of EMF to clients. My long-lifetime as a New Yorker, being the eldest from an Irish-Italian family of 13 from Brooklyn, and having my own family have helped me develop patience and understanding.
EMF testing is a non-invasive measuring of the electromagnetic fields in a residence, commercial space, or outdoors area. I do not provide electrical services. I do not even unscrew the covering of an electrical service panel or unscrew a wall outlet receptacle. Although I am not licensed to do electrical work, I am trained by the IBE and my many other previous teachers on how to instruct any electrician on how to identify a wiring error and how to fix any wiring errors.
All of our NYC clients’ electrical work is referred to Ivan Butkovic, Einstein Electrical Corporation. I meet with Ivan at least once every week, more often as needed, to discuss our clients’ needs and status. Outside of NYC limits we have electricians who work with us. We are agreeable to working with any client’s local electrician of choice.
Most NEC code compliance will fix any wiring error. The problem is that too many electricians take short-cuts that cause electromagnetic radiation emissions. Identifying these errors takes a certain skill that most electricians do not get in their training.
Together, Ivan and I founded the New York Electrical Safety Program™. We can go into any building and identify electrical issues that could help prevent an electrical fire in the building, in the reasonably near future.
I have developed an approach that takes EMF testing and remediation work to a higher standard. I named this The Galileo Protocol™. In many ways, people who do EMF consulting are somewhat similar to Galileo. During his time, the majority of people thought the universe was geocentric, meaning it revolved around the Earth. Galileo faced continuous admonition and threats from the Catholic Church because of his heliocentric beliefs.
Similarly, I have zero doubt that strong human-made electromagnetic fields are potentially threatening to the wellness of all life, yet many I encounter in New York City are convinced that EMFs are simply “harmless waves or puffs of air.” (Apparently, the marketing industry has been effective, here in NYC.)
I don’t consider myself an EMF activist nor do I ever intend on becoming one. There are others who are better suited for the task. I just want to help people reduce their exposure, one by one. EMF activism is important, but so is helping others, who really need help in the present.
During my time doing EMF consulting work I had noticed an extraordinary consistency between certain combinations and intensities of electromagnetic fields and hypothyroidism II. To my knowledge, I am the first in the world to have pointed out this consistency. This makes perfect sense since the thyroid gland is the voltage regulator for the body and requires cortisol for normal function. Documenting this consistency in partnership with Dr. Sharon Goldberg, MD, is one of my many ambitious goals for 2019.
Recently, I was accepted into the Bioelectromagnetics Society. BEMS is based in Washington, D.C. and is represented by members in 40 countries. “Persons who are active in the field of bioelectromagnetics or allied areas as demonstrated by independent, original research or by other activities which have significantly fostered the development of the field are qualified to be Members.” I plan to attend our next meeting in Montpelier, France.
Many have introduced me or referred me as an EMF expert. I am always apprehensive around this term because anyone who thinks that someone can be an EMF expert is not fully aware of the full spectrum of what this implies in our modern world. The EMF issues that we are struggling with, whether we as a society realize it or not are exceptional. Biological and physical scientists, engineers, physicians, and policy-makers all need to pool their knowledge and resources towards finding new solutions for how we as a species can continue to evolve technologically and yet find ways to live healthy lives while surrounded by the preponderance of new and developing technologies that go untested for their cumulative health effects.
In my small reality, I feel that if I ever I fancied myself as an EMF expert, then I would have stopped being humble and would possibly become more apt to stop growing and staying contemporary with the constant changes and new techniques that are happening every day in this quickly expanding field.
I would expect that even Albert Einstein would not have thought of himself as an EMF expert, and he discovered electromagnetism.
This is because the more one learns about electromagnetism, the more questions come to the surface. The workings of the universe and how electromagnetism fits into this equation presents us with more questions than answers, more new vistas and realms to explore.
Yes, there is always something new to learn. This one on the many reasons I love this field. I am continually developing my knowledge-base, seeking out people who know something I don’t and staying open-minded. There is a new book to read, a new course to take, a new area to explore in more depth, a new and unique experience to learn from, and the unknown yet to discover.
Electromagnetism is a vast and challenging phenomenon for any one person to think they have all the answers, but I assure you that I will be as thorough as is possible and do the best job I can for you and your family.
