Nicole Bijlsma is a woman of passion, and her passion lies in environmental medicine. Nicole is the author of the bestseller Healthy Home, Healthy Family and has featured on every major television network including the 7PM Project, Sunrise (seven times), the Today Show, The Circle and Channel 74. She is regularly consulted by the media to comment on health hazards associated with our homes. Nicole is an accomplished naturopath, acupuncturist and building biologist who has been in clinical practice since 1989.
She is also the founder and CEO of the Australian College of Environmental Studies which was established in 1999 to educate people about the health hazards in the built environment. The college provides nationally accredited training in Building Biology and Feng Shui. Apart from her extensive experience lecturing at tertiary institutions for over twenty years, Nicole has spoken at public forums including Stop Smart Meters Forum, Mindd Foundation, ACNEM, The Wellness Summit amongst many others and has conducted various radio interviews about her work. Nicole is on the education committee for the Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine.
She first became interested in building biology as a result of two events that occurred in her life: the first was when she began to notice the connection between many of her patient’s ill health and their homes. The second was her infertility (read my story). The cause of her ten miscarriages was eventually identified as an immune disorder (which was diagnosed by a US reproductive immunologist) which she now suspects arose from long term exposure to a high electromagnetic field. Once these issues were addressed, she successfully gave birth to her three children.
