Each Autumn and Spring I go looking for stored clothes with a musty odour. Some may have been sitting in the back of the cupboard waiting for their next wear. As the seasons change, our clothes change. It is the middle of Autumn here in Australia at the moment. The days are getting shorter and colder. We start to think of an extra layer of clothing to keep our body warm.
So, at this time of the year, I always go through my cupboard. First I look for any clothes that smell musty. These are put out for a wash instantly. I find that I cannot breathe properly if I put on a nightie that is slightly musty. I have to lie in it all night with it touching my skin and imparting its mustiness to the sheets and pillowcases. I don't want that. My winter singlets and nightwear get a wash. I don't want any old allergies or asthma to resurface.
Bedclothes get Musty too
Remember the sheets and pillowslips that you will sleep in. These, too, can take on a strong odour if unused for a few months. So out they go for a wash too. If the sheets are getting a wash, well the blankets must need a spruce up too. We use cotton blankets, so each of these is treated to water and sunshine.
In the 'olden days', the times of our grandmothers and great grandmothers, it was much more difficult to do the washing. It was all done by hand and hung on long lines in the open air. Sometimes special underclothes were spread across a convenient lavender bush to make it smell pretty.
Static Electricity and Synthetic clothing
Today, with the advent of the automatic washing machine, it is so easy to do a load of washing. However, spare a thought for all those people living in highrise apartments whose clothes never get to absorb the sunshine. They spread their clothing on clothes horses inside where the moisture slowly evaporates from them or throw them into a clothes dryer where they spin round and round for an hour or so, gathering static electricity.
Synthetic clothes are the worst for this. Synthetic clothing is made of acrylic, nylon, polyester, viscose and a few more varieties made from the oil and plastics industry. The best things to have your clothes made out of are cotton, wool, linen or bamboo. These do not attract static electricity and they are renewable.
We are so lucky here in Australia that so many of us have a clothesline in the backyard to dry the clothes. Make use of it and have fresh smelling clothing for winter.
Products that may help you deal with EMR
The air around us has positive and negative ions in it. When there is a thunderstorm, negative ions are released into the atmosphere. Often after a thunderstorm or lightning, the air feels cleaner or clearer. This is because of the excess of negative ions in the air.
Negative ions are good for our health. They make us feel relaxed and calm. Negative ions abound at the beach. They are generated by the waves breaking. They are also found in great quantities in forests, among the trees.
Positive ions build up in hot, dry weather. They build up with hot, dry winds. People get irritable when it is hot and windy.
Negative ions help to clear the air from EMR. Negative ionizers can be used in rooms in the house where you spend the most time. They make the air feel fresh. It's best to keep windows and outside doors closed so that the ionizers can work on the air in the room.
Yarrow Environmental Solution
This is a flower essence made by the Flower Essence Society. Flower essences are the energy of flowers captured in water. This essence was made after the Chernobyl nuclear plant disaster in 1986.T he energy of the flowers used in this combination essence along with potentized sea salt directly counteracts the destructive effects of radiation on the human energy field. It comes in the form of drops which are placed under the tongue. This imparts vitalizing and restorative properties to the aura.
Yarrow Environmental Solution guards against video display terminals, x-rays, radiation therapy, high altitude radiation, detection devices at airport terminals and invasive electromagnetic fields.

Earthing Sheets and Mats
By connecting us to the ground, we are connected into the Earth's energy. The Earth gives us electrons. These electrons match up with free radicals, those wicked little things that float around in our body causing inflammation and ageing in our body.
These sheets, developed by Clinton Ober, help us to access the energy of the earth from inside our home. These sheets have been specially designed and tested. All the science has been done for us. Put the sheet on your bed, plug the end of the wire into the earthing socket of your power point. You don't even have to turn the power point on. This product uses no electricity. Just go to bed as normal. You will be receiving the electrons from the earth as you sleep. There is also a product to put your bare feet on when sitting at the computer, or to put under your keyboard. You just have to touch these with bare skin.
Shungite is a rock or crystal with very special properties. It is found in Russia near the border of Finland. It is related to graphite and diamonds but is different from them. It is the only substance on earth that has geodesic formations within it. It is thought to be billions of years old and scientists are still trying to work out how it came to our planet.
This crystal or rock has the science behind it. It has been used by the Russians for hundreds of years to purify water and for healing. it has been proven to negate radiation within certain distances of it.
When this rock is placed in water it purifies it and imparts anti-radiation and antioxidant properties to it. The rock can be placed on computers to stop radiation affecting you. You can place some in your fridge to help you food last longer.
Rooms were lined with this and used for healing after the Chernobyl disaster. A Nobel Prize was given to the scientist who discovered its properties.
My philosophy about health is probably different to that held by many of you. I see the body as energy, not as physical therefore I like to treat it with energy medicines – homeopathy, flower essences, crystal healing, coloured light and aura soma. I have trained in the first four modalities.
Generally speaking I prefer not to use Western medicine as I feel that these drugs only mask what is really wrong with you. Sometimes they are needed and I have used it when needed. I prefer to get better slowly by improving my body and mind rather than take drugs to make me feel better. I feel that if I went along this track I would not learn anything.
When we go to the doctor to ‘make us better’ we are giving our power over to that person. I prefer to keep that power in my own hands.
I also am very aware of electromagnetic radiation (EMR) and try to avoid it as I have been very affected by it over the years.
I have spent countless hours in research and like to share this information with whoever is interested.
With regards to health, I think the most important word in the language is Hope.
When you are searching for a practitioner, the most important skill that person needs to know is Listening.

Electrical Charges in our Body
A buildup of electrical charges in our body can cause unpleasant sensations and even pain.
Some of us may have felt a zap when we have been getting out of the car or touching a metal door. This is called static electricity. It is not the same as an electric shock but it can frighten and even hurt. Sensations vary from a tingle to pain. A zapping sound may sometimes be heard.
Static electricity is increased around synthetic materials and electrical equipment. Many cars have synthetic seat covers or are made out of synthetic materials. Synthetic materials include vinyl, polyester, viscose and nylon. When we slide or turn in the car as we get out of it, then touch the metal of the car we can get a zap of static electricity. The rubbing of synthetic materials causes a buildup of electrical charges.
Walking, running or sliding on synthetic carpets can also cause the same problem. Some years ago my husband was working in a computer lab. This was in the early days of computers. He was sitting on a vinyl chair - what else - and it had plastic castors. He rolled across the synthetic flooring on his synthetic chair and touched the keyboard of the computer. This shorted it out! Kaboom! Keyboard was dead.
So you can see that this electrical buildup in our body and the equipment around us can cause big problems.
Static electricity is worse in winter time when the air is dry. Rooms are warmed by air conditioners and the air tends to be drier. Anyone working around office equipment eg photocopiers, printers, fans can also get a buildup of electrical charges.
My friend Annie always had problems. When she went to open the fridge, the door tingled. When she used the sewing machine she got buzzes going right through her. When she got out of a car she was scared to touch the car door to close it because of the painful zap she got. Even when shopping she had to be careful not to touch any metal doors or shelving in the shops. Door handles were out.
How to Reduce Static Electricity in your Body
If you live near the beach, go walk in the water. Annie reported an amazing sensation as soon as her feet touched wet sand. She could feel the electrical energy draining from her head and travelling down through her body and out through her feet.
She walked in the sea water regularly to drain this energy out of her and it worked. Her buildup was so strong that it took a few months to get rid of the sensations but they did disappear entirely. Annie now no longer needs to be careful when getting out of a car or opening a door. She feels safer and much better. She goes for a walk in the water every few months just to drain any excess electrical energy from her body.
If you do not live near a beach try walking on damp grass early in the morning. This may be in your backyard or in the local park.
Wear clothing made from natural fibres. Natural fibres do not build up electrical charges in your body. Shoes made of natural fibres will help too. Shoes can be made of leather, cotton, sisal or hemp and have cork or leather soles. They are harder to find but are available.
People with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, low immune system, allergies and eczema are sometimes more susceptible to the buildup of static electricity in their
system. All the more reason to wear clothing made of natural fibres.
Try moisturising your body so that it does not get too dry. This may help if you are unable to do any of the above.
Have a great static free day. Cheers

Power lines are dangerous to be near. They emit EMR
Electro Magnetic Radiation is not a good things to be around.
Recently I talked about not being able to see things but this does not make them not exist. I mentioned the wind that we cannot see yet we know it exists.
We cannot see electricity yet we know it exists. We cannot see electro magnetic radiation yet we know it exists.
Electro magnetic radiation or EMR for short is emitted from many electrical things for example
electricity meter box in your house
transformer boxes in electrical equipment eg in the power cord of your laptop
and the list goes on
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
If you have CFS, ME, CFIDS or any related illness, be extra careful around electrical equipment. Your body is sensitive and can be further exhausted by the radiation of everyday electrical equipment.
For Your Safety
Stay away from these things as much as possible. The further you are from them the more their energy dissipates.
When your microwave is going, EMR is emitted from it to a range of about one metre.
I have used a special meter to check all the electrical equipment in our house.
You can read more about it in my book Allergies and Chronic Fatigue A Natural Approach.
Living near power lines is not good for you. I hope for your sake that you do not live near lines like you see in the picture.
Child Care Centres
When choosing a Child Care Centre for your child, do not choose one directly beneath large powerlines. I have seen these centres built there. Do you really want your delicate little child being subjected to radiation for 8 or 10 hours a day? Would you like to be subjected to radiation for this time each day?
I am a trained Natural Therapist, Teacher, published Author and Artist who lives on the south eastern coast of Australia.
