Interview with Nicole Bijlsma

Written by Lucinda Curran

Nicole Bijlsma

About 14 years, I first met Nicole Bijlsma in my first year of my Chinese medicine studies. She was a guest lecturer and taught us about Feng Shui. The very next semester, I enrolled in the course…

And so began the journey…

It was in this course that I first heard about “chemical sensitivities.” This information served me well in diagnosing myself when mine developed.

Laying in my hospital bed, I determined that when I was well enough, I would study building biology and prevent others from becoming as sick as I had.

Once qualified, I joined the committee of the Australasian Society of Building Biologists where Nicole and I worked closely for several years, with each of us taking the role of President in that time.

She was a speaker at both Environmental Sensitivities Symposiums and then brought me onto staff at “the college” (Australian College of Environmental Studies). We work closely together and have a firm friendship.

Here is a more formal introduction:

Nicole Bijlsma has experienced first hand how the environment impacts health. As it was for me, it was this journey, and observing her patients, that prompted her study into Building Biology.

She is the founder of the Australian College of Environmental Studies. Nicole is the author of Healthy Home Healthy Family, which has been featured on every major television network in Australia. This third edition is vastly different from the previous two. It utilises almost 900 references, and is therefore a rich source of evidence-based information.

I interview Nicole here about the third edition of her book and ask some questions that we are all hanging out to hear her opinion on!
