Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for September 29, 2006


Previous Night Vibration Status: None
Morning Vibration Status: Extremely weak

For this move we have used Google Earth to check out where we should live. Checking the transit routes, public transit connections and different landmarks. We’ve found it very very useful but I’m using Google Earth for different reasons…

I’m mapping out the hydro transmission towers and the cell phone towers. I’ve created a layer and mapped out the grid so that everytime I find a house on the listing service, I check the postal code in Google Earth and map the distance.

Very effective and recommended for all those who care about those kind of things!

We arrive home and I’m standing in my driveway pointing the meter at the cell phone towers and the meter is showing safe levels.  Inside the house I take some more readings and it is still showing safe. I feel like an idiot.

I pull out the three page instruction booklet that came with the device. It explains how to take readings with the meter and how to measure the safe distance from EMF exposure.

The second page talks about the different places in your house that could be a source of EMF. The first place it mentions is the bedroom and how this is the most important area of the house because of the time spent sleeping in one place. It says to check the windows to see if any EMFs are coming in.

It also says to avoid sleeping with electric blankets and alarm clock radios.  We don’t have an electric blanket but I do have a clock radio beside my bed. Doesn’t everyone? It also talks about appliances in the kitchen, televisons and computer screens. Another thing it mentions is taking background readings around the house as there could be ground fault with the electrical wiring. This is interesting since our house is eighty years old.

I start taking readings in the bedroom and with a radio tower near by, I take a reading by the window and it displays in the safe range. Then I take a reading close to the radio and it starts screaming. Beside the radio is an old style lamp with a steel base and next to that is a FM wireless intercom device and the meter is showing above the acceptable limit of 2 mG for all three. The interesting thing about the intercom unit is the reading was still above the acceptable limit even when the unit was powered off.

Did I create my own problem? I’ve had the same clock radio for years but the lamp and intercom system are new since moving into the house. Then I realize the other intercom base unit is next to my computer where I also spend most of my time. I unplug each of the intercom units and I move the lamp and the radio to the tall dresser.

The rest of the house seems okay. Let’s see if it makes a difference…

So now that I’ve discovered this cell phone tower in the area of our new house I drive around the neighbourhood looking for the actual location and I find it. It’s located on top of the walk in clinic where I first saw the doctor about the vibrations. How’s that for irony?

I’m curious to find out if there are any cell phone towers in the old neighbourhood. I only started vibrating since I moved to Oshawa. I check it out and yes, there is one at the end of the old street on the corner of Port Union and Lawrence. I take advantage of Google Earth and using the measurement tool, I measure the distance between my house and the cell phone tower…in both neighbourhoods…and they are exactly the same:  350 meters.

Now I’m really confused. If it was the cell phone tower causing my problem why is there one just as close in the old neighbourhood? The symptoms seem to match but what is causing the problem? I need to investigate further.

I do a look up of the doctor my mother mentioned on the Global TV show and nothing turns up. Dr. Rinna Brey is an unusual name so I should be able to find something.

Somehow I discover the spelling of her name was wrong! Her name is Dr. Riina Bray. I mention this to my mother and she says it was spelt the other way on the TV show. I find her listing in the Ontario doctor’s search web site and notice that she’s not accepting new patients. Maybe if I mention this to my doctor or the naturopath, I can get a referral. I’m sure both of them are ready to send me to someone else by now.

I’ve been wrong before and I need some evidence to prove that this is the problem. I’m not a doctor, not even close so I need something to prove beyond a doubt that the electromagnetic radiation is the cause of my problems. I start googling again.

After some reading about the symptoms Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity, I decide to look further into what causes them.

Electromagnetic radiation is caused by radio waves, TV towers, cell phones, cell sites, mobile phones, cordless phones and microwave ovens. Things that are very hard to avoid. I’ve had a cell phone for seven years, a cordless phone for five years and a microwave oven for sixteen years.  It goes on to suggest that your house should be 13 km from nearest cell phone tower or other radio, TV transmitter.

Because we just moved to the Oshawa area and the vibrations started six months later, I decided to focus on the location of the nearest cell phone tower. I start googling away and come across a site that displays the location of cell phone towers for each carrier in the southern Ontario area. ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT! I click on the link for Oshawa and find my street location and there is a Rogers cell phone tower around the corner from my house.

Definately closer than 13 km.
