07 Jul About Me
I am a mum with three young children who experienced ten miscarriages which I suspect was caused from sleeping in a high electromagnetic field in my home. I have the opportunity as part of my PhD to develop a Healthy Home Tool that could enhance the lives of millions of people, but can’t achieve this goal without your help. DONATE HERE, or buy my book or do a course. To find out more about my research, click here.
Since my miscarriages, I have spent the past 15 years investigating the health hazards in the home, much of which I share with you on this website. This takes time, alot of time in fact and for much of my journey it has been a labour of love that ultimately resulted in the first edition of my book – Healthy Home Healthy Family. Like you, I was frustrated that nobody could help us understand why we couldn’t start a family, and we spent thousands of dollars seeking advice from health practitioners all over the country to no avail. I get it. However as I began to unravel the timing of events, it became immediately obvious that our health declined when we moved into our home – poor sleep and fatigue initially, followed by lots of miscarriages. At the same time, several of my patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in the 1990s were asking about mould in their home. Could their be a connection? As I waded through the research on chemicals in household products, electromagnetic fields and allergens like mould, it began to dawn on me that our homes could be making us sick.

Nicole is an accomplished naturopath, acupuncturist, IICRC accredited mould remediation technician and building biologist who began clinical practice in 1989. Nicole is the author of the best seller Healthy Home, Healthy Family, was a columnist for Body+Soul (Herald Sun) and is frequently consulted by the media to comment on health hazards in the built environment (The 7PM Project, Sunrise, The Today Show, The Circle, Channel 7 News, Today Tonight, Channel 74, ABC radio, Fox FM, numerous webinars and podcasts).
Nicole has thirty years experience lecturing at tertiary institutions, and has published in peer-reviewed journals. Her extensive knowledge in environmental medicine has seen her speak at various conferences both in Australia and abroad (USA, Thailand, New Zealand). Nicole single handedly established the building biology industry in Australia, was the former President of the Australasian Society of Building Biologists and established the Australian College of Environmental Studies (RTO #21740) to educate people about the health hazards in the built environment. The college is the only institution in Australia to provide nationally accredited training in Building Biology and Feng Shui. Nicole is currently undertaking her PhD investigating health hazards in the built environment under the supervision of Professor Marc Cohen at RMIT.
