Alison Wilson worked in advertising and marketing in both London and Sydney, before co-founding and running a successful specialist printing company.
She then became ill and - because none of the doctors or specialists she consulted could offer her any solutions - she decided to find out how to help herself. She has spent the past 17 years learning as much as she can about how health is disrupted, and the ways in which it can be improved.
One of the things she has discovered is just how much home and work environments affect us. As the mother of a young boy who became ill due to electromagnetic radiation exposure at home, she decided to help spread the word about the fact that it’s not only how people live that can determine our health, but also where they live.
Waving goodbye to her former life in marketing and manufacturing, she travelled to the US to train as a Building Biology professional, and then as a CERSA consultant (Certified Electromagnetic Radiation Safety Advisor). She has combined their knowledge with her own research, consulting and in-field experience, and married this with the very latest news from science and technology. And along the way, she managed to recover not only her son’s health but also her own.
Since the end of the last century (!) Alison has spent years traveling extensively (both on the Internet and inside a plane) to learn from the leaders in many related fields. This has resulted in a unique way of working, and a deep understanding of how we can change our environments to optimise our health and vitality. She’s spent her time trying to get the message and information about phones and wireless across as best as she can.
As well as consulting, she’s held public talks, private talks for professionals, written in magazines, talked on radio, and even appeared on TV - and each time the response was the same: “Why don’t we know about this?” and “Where’s the book? You need to write all this down in a book for everyone.” So she did. She took time out to write, and the result is the Hold The Phone books.
She and her husband have called Australia home since the 80’s, and are now lucky enough to live on the edge of the Pacific Ocean in Sydney.
