EMF-free shelter to be created in France

Proposed site of EMF-free shelterMichèle Rivasi of MEP Europe Ecology-Greens has announced MEP’s intentions to create a “white zone” free of electromagnetic radiation for sufferers of electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) in a small town in the Hautes-Alpes area of France. The proposed site is located at the foot of a mountain and surrounded by fields, and was reported to have low electromagnetic radiation in a study conducted by the Commission for Independent Research and Information on Electromagnetic Radiation (Criirem).

The shelter would be created on the site of the monastery of Durbon – part of a larger property owned by the Caf de Marseille – in Saint-Julien-en-Beauchêne. The monastery includes a central building and two cottages that require renovation. The site is several miles from the village of Saint-Julien-en-Beauchene, and separated from it by a hill, allowing the town to host this project without restricting its people from using WiFi or mobile phones.

The project is currently in a preliminary research phase, but could materialize in two to three years, as the site requires some major improvements, including burying a power line and transformer, and installing a gas heater.

“This project will see the light of day if the state supports us, or does it all,” said Tribaudeau Philippe, President of the Land Association for EHS (Electromagnetic HyperSensitivity). Although politics will make the process of building take several years, Philippe says that every day they have calls from hypersensitive people in desperate need of an electromagnetic radiation-free place to live.

A test of electromagnetic hypersensitivity in affected people has been scheduled for the end of the year to validate the project. In 2011, Anne Cautain and Bernadette Touloumond took refuge in a cave in the same area in order to escape from EMF radiation.

  • Earthwalker

    Earthwalker is the username that PT founder Julie Genser created for her online interactions so many years ago when first creating Planet Thrive.

    Julie's (Earthwalker's) life was derailed over twenty years ago when she had a very large organic mercury exposure after she naively used a mouth thermometer to measure the temperature of just-boiled milk while making her very first pizza at home. The mercury instantly expanded into a gas form and exploded out the back of the thermometer right into her face. Unaware that mercury was the third most neurotoxic element on Earth, Julie had no idea she had just received a very high dose of a poisonous substance.

    A series of subsequent toxic exposures over the next few years -- to smoke from two fires (including 9/11), toxic mold, lyme disease, and chemical injuries -- caused catastrophic damage to her health. While figuring out how to survive day-to-day, and often minute-to-minute, she created Planet Thrive to help others avoid some of the misdiagnoses and struggles she had experienced.

    She has clawed her way over many health mountains to get to where she is today. She is excited to bring the latest iteration of Planet Thrive to the chronic illness community.

    In 2019, Julie published her very first cookbook e-book called Low Lectin Lunches (+ Dinners, Too!) after discovering how a low lectin, gluten free diet was helping manage her chronic fascia/muscle pain.
