The World Health Organization has recognized for over 15 years now that Geopathic Stress (GS) is a major contributor to Sick Building Syndrome (SBS). It estimates that over 30% of buildings are Geopathically Stressed.
If one adds the effect of ‘functional’ building methods (as opposed to building to support health), rapidly increasing Electromagnetic Frequencies (EMF) density, and the increasing levels of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) from paints, glue, sealants, carpets, etc. then we have a toxic working environment.
The higher the number of ‘negative’ impacts that exist in a particular space the stronger the overall detrimental effect as they compound each other, i.e. there is a multiplication element to their respective influences. Consequently certain buildings, or even specific locations within a particular building, can be more toxic to health than others.
These ‘subtle’ energies, called subtle because they are generally not perceived by our five primary senses, nevertheless influence us hugely.
Extended exposure results in weakening of the immune system, opening us up to a myriad of illnesses including chronic fatigue and chronic illness. Remaining in these environments seriously inhibits the effectiveness of any medical intervention.
Ideally, removing oneself from the environment is best but practical limitations, such as requiring to remain employed, do exist.
A practical alternative is to attend to the reasons for the Sick Building Syndrome.
This could take the form of ameliorating any detrimental earth energy zones and improving the energy quality of the building interior (or perhaps a particular area.)
For business managers the benefits of doing so include:
- Reduced illness of employees and hence reduced time off work
- Reduced aggravation and tension between the staff
- Reduced medical and associated costs
- Improved staff attitude
- Improved mental acumen and attention span while at work
- Improved overall business performance and hence bottom line returns.
Any business manager or owner should see the above benefits as a very positive development in the business.
Although attention to this aspect by business managers and owners is currently slow, confined predominantly to East Asia and now also emerging in Europe, this will receive increasing attention in other parts of the world.
As with all past innovative concepts there are those that will benefit early by seeing the opportunity, and those who will lag and miss the benefits for an extended period of time.
Finally, taking this staff health improvement one step further would be for companies to look into assisting their staff to investigate the earth energies and energy quality of the homes of their staff.
If this is not possible for all staff then perhaps at least assist the key staff members.
The benefits here are potentially:
- Further health improvements of the staff member
- Improvements of the health of his family. This will allow the staff member to worry less and improve his attention and focus.
- Improved loyalty to the company.
Everything considered it makes good sense to investigate this aspect of our business and commercial world.
The return on investment will far outweigh and outlast most of the expensive ‘staff intervention’ strategies that are available in the market.
An added advantage is that people and potential clients visiting the premises will ‘feel more comfortable’ in your working environment.
Although this is a subtle aspect to doing business it is still a very powerful influence.
