Updates: How has your idea changed or evolved throughout the Prize? What updates have you made to this submission? (1500 characters)

My idea evolved after talking with my mentor and fellow researchers. I originally planned to use the content from my wellness course addressing EMF. My mentor recommended I build a marketing campaign with a website and videos to educate the need for my innovation. I see the need for marketing, however, I’m a teacher, not a salesperson. I have family and friends who are “geeks” but they’re not interested in wellness. I did text a friend and his mother and I’m still waiting for a reply. I had an upsetting weekend after my mentor chat that left me inactive for this work. I lost my cell phone and the diamond from my wedding ring. I put the diamond search on hold and bought the iPhone X. The Apple rep kindly answered all my questions on the phone updates sounding like I could ask anything without feeling stupid. When I mentioned that I needed this cell to make videos and a website he claimed that this new cell would make all the difference but to stick to the computer for the website. He was so sure that I could create a website in an hour on GoDaddy I believed him even if I didn’t know what GoDaddy was. I took advantage of a request to judge a Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) competition. I chose the marketing media section of the competition to judge so I could learn from these 9-12 grade students. Feeling energized again I took a day off from work to treat myself to an hour of yoga followed by several hours of shopping and some of my favorite foods. That night I sat down and created a website. Knowing the scope of the wellness arena where there is no one solution to any problem I decided my solution is dietary with a focus on EMF protection.

What is the stage of your proposal?

  • Research & Early Testing: I am exploring my idea, gathering the inspiration and information I need to test it with real users.

Describe how your solution could be a game-changer for your selected Opportunity Area (600 characters)

My solution could be a game-changer due to the growing number of EMF research and online videos warning the public about the EMF dangers. 5G (5th generation) technology will create even greater public concern within the coming months as it enters neighborhoods. We don’t know what will come with 5G but it’s predicted to increase speed and connect multiple devices and functions. The wireless industry claims to not know all the details but considering all that it will do 5G will require transmitting towers every 2-10 houses.

Tell us more about your innovation (1500 characters)

My innovation aims to protect the developing neurological system of the young that is increasingly being bombarded with compromised air quality. Smoke may be an invasive problem that could be addressed. However, harmful EMF is the growing problem that is not being addressed yet research indicates it is impacting cellular development and health. Our technological culture is demanding increased use and speed of wireless communication resulting in developmental delays, learning disorders, behavioral dysfunctions and memory loss.

What problem are you aiming to solve? (3 sentences)

Knowledge is power, but the knowledge of EMF biological harm has yet to come out in the open. People would rather not know something that would limit their pleasure.

Explain your idea (5000 characters)

EMF biological damage affects children are more than adults and many are showing signs of electrical sensitivities. Long standing research has indicated that children’s brains are much thinner and absorb up to 60 percent more EMF radiation than adult brains. In babies the radio waves penetrate almost through their entire brain. By the time they are adults, many will already have used their phones or been exposed to WiFi for 20 years. Studies indicate that usage over ten-years greatly increase health risk. We don’t yet know the ramifications from birth, but the predictions don’t look good. Researchers stress the need to address protection prior to and during pregnancy because this is when the most EMF damage occurs. The public needs to recognize that cell phones produce microwave radiation. Ignorance is evident with the common placement of cell phones in bras and pockets and allowing babies to talk and play with wireless devices. Health issues need to take priority over education due to the impact EMF damage does to the brain. EMF disrupts cellular function in every part of the body and interfere with the body’s natural processes, such as sleep, hormone production, neurological function, immune response and the ability to heal. EMFs cause chronic inflammation in the body which has been linked with cell damage, cancer, heart disease, autoimmune diseases, diabetes and neurological diseases. They trigger the immune system to release inflammatory substances such as histamines and cytokines as a protective mechanism. These are inflammation markers for asthma and other allergic reactions. My idea is to contribute to the already existing media campaign to educate the public of the biological damage caused by EMF. I will produce use social media to draw people to my wellness website. From there they will learn about the EMF dangers, actions to mitigate the problem and have product recommendations to protect the brains of family members. I’m already teaching my school district staff about this issue of wellness and will teach the same content to the community at the local community college in the Spring. Since I just set up a website I can direct families to it. My online search for current videos that appeal to diverse populations found a need to create short, compelling action videos to attach to my site. I will need support from professionals. Watch How the 5G Rollout Might Crush Our Health and What to do About It-Nicolas Pineault on TEDx www.youtube.com/watch?v=moUhDwR6vxY - Nov 7, 2017 I need to create an informercial on “How to Protect Children From EMF”. My EMF protection recommendation: 1-Distance yourself to reduce exposure Laptops can heat and radiate organs. Use a grounding cable and pad the space between the laptop and you. 2-Replace EMF sources Replace dimmer switches with flip switches, replace halogen, LED, florescent lights with incandescent, replace WIFI with cable, use a towel instead of a hairdryer, unplug electrical cords not in use, choose low EMF alternatives. 3-Shield or Absorb Use EMF shielding for Smart Meter, breaker box, laptop, etc. Absorb EMF positive ions with heat from a Himalayan salt lamp or diffusion of essential oils. 4-Filter outlets to reduce exposure Outlet filters (resistive capacitive technology) filters out harmful EMF without limiting electrical output. I also need to create an informercial on “How to Build Immunity with Wellness Products” My immunity recommendation: 1-Eat plants not things made from plants. 2-Supplement with whole foods. 3-Detox by sweating from exercise or sauna 4-Sleep in pitch darkness on a regular schedule I want to teach the benefits of Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy because there is so much that can harm us which we have no control of or that we don’t want to change. We can’t afford money wise or time wise to do some of the things that protect us, and we don’t want to limit our pleasure either. The most basic PEMF products that benefit us is filtered, magnetized, alkaline water, magnetic massagers, insoles and wrist/neck bands. I want a test group of about 5-9 families to use a packaged EMF protection recommendation. My group recommendation includes: 1-Install EMF filters throughout the house where people spend the most time (bedrooms, TV/computer room, kitchen) to bring EMF reading within safe limits if possible 2-Set up a salt lamp or essential oil diffuser at a strategic location 3-Set up a PEMF pad for the youngest child under a sheet 4-Offer parents wellness options that address any health need and within their budget I will achieve the satisfaction of knowing that I did not withhold the best wellness options for the prevention of sickness that research indicates and that my family has experienced. I realize not everyone wants to change to protect their health but educating everyone for the benefit of innocent children, our next generation, is my mission.

Who benefits? (1500 characters)

Because I'm a teacher I'm naturally drawn to the classroom, however, I have four grandchildren under the age of three and one on the way. I babysit 3-5 times a week and see how my grandbabies live in a technological world very different from when I raised my four children. These families are the main beneficiaries of my idea so far. My daughter has a 15 month old girl who acquired a severe eczema condition when weaned from breast milk to formula. To reduce inflammation this baby was given goats milk. When food was introduced her condition became critical. Her face swelled up and mother was fearful tn anti-inflammatory and safe for her age. When I EMF tested and filtered the house there was a noticeable improvement except for when the baby was given foods not on the safe list. I have an air particulate counter that I was going to use to measure the air quality but decided against it because I don't want to do this for others and the practice is not duplicatable. I gave the family cleansing and calming essential oils and a diffuser which they claimed improved their sleep quality. The reason it helps is because these clinical essential olare antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory. Also, being botanical in nature rather than synthetic they produce negative ions which balance the excessive positive ions produced by electronics.

What kind of impact will your idea have? (1500 characters)

Long lasting outcomes will be evident in the educational system when the behaviors of children are followed. Behaviors such as an increased ability to focus and concentrate is noticeable, self rewarding and rewarding to parents. There is a potential for families to enjoy enhanced communication with children creating positive change and hope for the future.

How does or how could your idea impact low-income children? (1500 characters)

I read Dr. Martin Pall’s research, saw his lecture videos, emailed and talked with him about learning disorders. What he has discovered is believable. The rise in learning disorders coincides with the expansion of technology. www.emfsafetynetwork.org/dr-martin-pall-emfs-are-the-major-cause-of-autism/

Innovation: What makes your concept innovative? (5000 characters)

My idea is to contribute to the already existing media campaign to educate the public of the biological damage caused by EMF. I will produce social media to draw people to my wellness website. From there they will learn about the EMF dangers, actions to mitigate the problem and have product recommendations to protect the brains of family members. I’m already teaching my school district staff about this issue of wellness and will teach the same content to the community at the local community college in the Spring. I set up a website that families can be directed to. My online search for current videos that appeal to diverse populations fell short. I need compelling action videos to attach to my site. I will need support from professionals. I need to create an infomercial on “How to Protect Children From EMF”. My EMF protection recommendation: 1-Distance yourself to reduce exposure Laptops can heat and radiate organs.

I realize not everyone wants to change to protect their health but educating everyone for the benefit of innocent children, our next generation, is my mission. Beyond this program challenge I want to offer my school district the opportunity to provide more focused learning for students and calmer classroom control for teachers. I can test all electrical outlets where students and teachers work to determine the EMF levels and offer to install filters to minimize the negative impact on their brains. Creating a calm, focused environment for learning has the potential to teach the love for learning and possibly improve relationships in their futures. My classroom idea for filtering EMF is not new. See the research to improve potential.

Scale: Describe how your idea could reach a significant number of end-users. (1500 characters)

My idea could reach a considerable number of end-users with social media. There are a few barriers such as my inadequate knowledge and experience using Facebook. I've had a business site for about 10 years and only kept it thinking that someday I'll need to bank on it. I was able to keep my business name Ohana Health which is not affiliated with four direct sales companies. Each company allows me to promote them along with other wellness companies. Competition is not an issue, however, I did email and taldddddddk to one company executive to be sure I was in compliance with their company policy.

Feasibility: Where are you with understanding the feasibility of your idea? Describe what you’ve done so far and your plans. (3000 characters)

I consider myself weak when it comes to understanding the feasibility of my idea. I say this honestly knowing that I have more passion than ability to impact change. I have a 14 year history of direct sales with little income to show for. I love ideas and produce lots of personal activity. My family has always come first. We're fortunate to not be burdened with material things beyond our means. Wellness has been such a high priority that we have sacrificed looking popular to afford high end supplements while not going bankrupt. Our values have evolved from the need to maintain a strong immunity to live a life of vitality. My husband and I accept our stage in L=life for it has been well lived. I've done pretty much all that I could on this proposal with the limited time that I have between babysitting substitute teaching, working my direct sales businesses and volunteering in the community. I've set up a website and filled it with the most eye-catching images and concise information to showcase my wellness message. It' remains a project in progress and was ony published to share with those willing to help improve it. I've shared my work with the two leading researchers I respect, Dr. Samuel Milham and Dr. Martin Pall both in Washington state. I've viewed numerous EMF research studies and videos. I've studied nyt direct sales companies as well as other leading companies for products that protect against the harm caused by EMF. And I've talked with people suffering from various environmental and accidental sicknesses. I feel like I'm alone with this work because almost all the feedback received has been negative. What I mean is that those people have experienced so much disbelief from [people that shared with so many times that it's difficult for them to imagine that I could have success. Thinking about mass shootings in schools, deaths from opioid overdose and the growing homeless situation can bring me to tears when i have solution that relatively few know about and nobody wants. I need a team to advance my idea. I have one fellow researcher who is passionate like me, however, she is physically weak as a result of a head on cocar collusion. I contacted four media businesses to inquire about what they have to offer but I'm sto;; waiting for a reply. My guess is that no one is interested unless I can pay them for their services. I probably shouldn't have mentioned that there's a possibility of monetary reward. I consider my idea feasible and viable from a technical and operational perspective given the support and time needed to learn how to move it forward. The pathway is clear to implement but needs financial support to build it. With financial support I uld devote the time and energy n this instead of working outside the home Alos with financial support I would be able to pay for crucial help when needed.

Business Viability: How viable is your business model? (5000 characters)

My business model for wellness products is direct sales. It depends on sufficient advertising and educating on the need for these products. I can’t do this advertising alone but predict that EMF problems will have the effect of drawing health seekers to find solutions the medical industry lacks. Prior to maternity leave I completed my Masters of Science in Family Studies through Central Washington University. For my Masters project I researched and wrote a handbook for operating a family day care in Washington state. I immersed myself in setting up the home day care business and opened our home when our second child arrived. My husband worked with me part of the day then left to work an evening shift at the local hospital. As business grew I hired a girlfriend who brought her children and our kids grew up together. Arlene's Family Day Care Home was distinguished by requiring non-discrimination and violence free participation. We attracted minority and single parent families including one with same sex parents. No war play or toys were allowed. I didn't realize the affect this would have on my three boys until they refused my request that they complete at least one year of Jr ROTC (Reserve Officer Training Corps) in high school. Their grandfathers served in the armed forces and wanted them to at least get minimal military experience.

HCD: How have you used human centered design to build or refine your concept? (5000 characters)

I've used a human centered design to build my concept of the dangers of EMF. No one living in our technological environment escapes EMF. You have electricity, an electrical breaker box and outlets from which electric toxins infiltrate your living space on its way to and from substations. You get your neighbors EMF through the walls especially if you live in an apartment. Most people don't realize how they are being polluted because they can't see or hear EMF. What's 5G? It stands for the fifth round of new cell phone technology. Back up and recall the first generation of wireless phones that came out in the 1980's. It was followed with 2G which added internet capacity. 4G allowed downloading. 5G will be faster and will connect multiple devices requiring transmission towers to be installed every 2-10 houses in order to power it. Watch the Nov.7, 2017 TEDx by Nicolas Pineault, "How the 5G Rollout Might Crush Our Health and What to do About It".

Tell us more about you (3000 characters)

My idea came from my research for the classes I teach. Since 2004 I have been realizing the benefits of self care from experience using wellness products . Personal experience has driven me to seek answers to the toxic environment our culture has produced. I live within the danger (financially compensated) zone of the Asarco smelter (arsenic, lead) in Tacoma but can't directly blame it on my four miscarriages or my daughter's childhood seizure condition. I'm a former Home Economics teacher with six years experience managing a family day care home. I wrote the manual for Washington state on operating a daycare home as part of my Masters in Family Studies. My four grandbabies now draw me back into the world of early childhood development as I regularly provide home care in their homes. When I taught back in the 1970-80's we were provided teaching material from food industry giants. I thought nothing of it and gladly used all the free audio visuals and handouts. I implemented what I learned from independent studies such as replacing aluminum cookware with glass or stainless steel and teaching about how food absorbs toxins linked to memory decline. After I left teaching I had more time to research and consider the content I taught. I realized that some of what I taught was wrong based on new research and unbiased reporting. I needed new ideas to solve the health challenges of my family. In that season of my life I was able to reason and make sense out of common associations like which foods make me feel stronger. I discovered that some parents thought they were feeding their children good food because it was sold with the label "fruit snacks" which should mean containing fruit, however, sugar was the first ingredient. Some parents still think that a daily sandwhich of peanut butter and jelly on white bread is healthy. My inspiration to teach wellness according to scientific and evidence based research comes from years of hearing misinformation from caring parents. I'm excited about addressing issues for early childhood development because I'm an actively involved grandparent. My children now need more truth than "cause I said so" when it comes to how to parent their children. When I was teaching full time and planning to start a family I experienced two miscarriages. I replaced my doctor with a midwife in the hope of gaining more personal care and support for my values. I had to take maternity leave in the middle of the school year after spontaneous contractions on the job threatened another miscarriage. Prior to maternity leave I completed my Masters of Science in Family Studies through Central Washington University.

Do you have the people and partners you need to do what you’ve described? (600 characters)

My business partners have patented products that are well researched and proven effective. I trust them, however, I anticipate the need for them to be more user friendly or for me to create a simple system to get their tools in the hands of consumers. I am open to other partners who can deliver the same or better results. I do not have sufficient partners needed to provide effective Facebook ideas, constructive feedback and technical guidance. It would help to have examples of successful Facebook threads similar to what I'm promoting. I'm looking for partners with a passion or helping yo

As you consider your next steps, what kinds of help could you use? Is there a type of expertise that would be most helpful? (1800 characters)

I could use help from people and/or expertise for communicating the harmful effects of EMF on human development. The general public is clueless as evidenced by many carrying cell phones in their bras or pant pockets and holding it next to their ears or letting children use them. My next steps are to test the EMF recommendations posted on my website. I could use help creating a plan for reaching out to my community that is short term with little to no financial commitment. The type of expertise I imagine I'd need is similar to that of politicians soliciting votes. During the summer each neighbor community hosts a Street Fair for one or two days over a weekend. Vendors pay to promote their products, service or whatever business including non-profits. We also have community Farmers Markets almost every day of the week at different locations. Each location hosts a certain day of the week throughout the summer and some start in the Spring and end in the Fall. I'm open to promotion ideas that others can help me with. It's my preference to discover a community advocate that I can mentor. Young families need someone closer to their age to model after. This ideal person excludes me because I'm considered a senior citizen and my generation is old fashioned. My community may have a club or organization able to provide the service of educating families if I can convince them of the value of this work.

Would you like mentoring support?

  • Yes

If so, what type of mentoring support do you think you need? (1200 characters)

I think I need mentoring support that holds me accountable to completing activities within a reasonable timeline. Knowing myself, I realize too late the extend of the task in front of me. Unfamiliar work involving technology usually takes more time than I allow. I need user friendly marketing help. Some technology tasks such as using my iPhone takes numerous attempts to process and complete.

If so, what type of mentoring support do you think you need? (1200 characters) [Relevant only for Early Submission Deadline]

Upon meeting my first assigned mentor I emailed the content material I had planned to promote. After looking at it he claimed that he didn't think he had anything of value to offer me. I was then assigned to another mentor. This mentor supported my idea although it seemed that he too didn't understand the seriousness of the matter. It was fine for us since we just needed to move me forward. He reminded me that our target group is low income families who probably didn't have resources for anything other than necessities. I realized that I need to focus on the issue of protecting from harm with action rather than material purchases.
