we remove an ongoing drain on our health, energy is freed
up for healing arthritis or anything else that ails us.
One of the ongoing drains for many people is exposure
to dirty electricity.

What Is Dirty Electricity?
It used to be that appliances used the full 60 Hertz
electrical charge that is supplied to the electrical
outlets in homes. The 60 Hertz signal is easy on the
body and using the whole signal was fine from a health
point of view. A smooth 60 hertz signal is considered
clean electricity. Then energy saving appliances came
along--a great idea for the environment, but with unfortunate
health-related side effects. Many of these save electricity
by using only a portion of the 60 Hertz signal. Unfortunately,
the unused fragments can emit frequencies that are unhealthy
for the human body.
Devices that Produce Dirty
The worst devices for producing dirty electricity are
dimmer switches, fluorescent lights and electronics
such as TVs, computers, and printers. Even if you have
none of these devices in your own home, dirty electricity
can flow through the power grid into your home.
How Can You Get Rid of It?
Graham-Stetzer filters ground out the problematic frequencies
and return the electrical signal within your home to
a healthy one. These filters cost about $30 each and
plug directly into electrical outlets. My three bed
room home took 14 filters to bring it back into a healthy
range. It typically takes about 20 filters for an average
for further information about the production and elimination
of dirty electricity.
Installing the Filters
The meter which reads the level of dirty electricity
costs about $100. Ideally the reading at each outlet
in your house will be 20 or less, but 50 or less is
acceptable. Over 50 indicates the need for a filter
to bring the levels back into a healthy range.
Rather than purchasing a meter myself, I had an electrician
come out and install these filters on a trial basis
for me. Most electricians don’t install these
devices. This guy does it on the side because he knows
there are a lot of people who are sick because of exposure
to dirty electricity and he wants to do what he can
to help them get well. I was particularly fortunate
to find someone who believes in charging only those
who experience a positive change from his work. (If
I hadn't, he would have reclaimed the filters and used
He used the meter to test each outlet in my house.
Then he added Graham-Stetzer filters to the outlets
closest to the circuit box. This was so we could first
screen out the dirty electricity flowing into my house
from the outside. It took several filters plugged into
the first several outlets along this route to bring
the dirty electricity levels along that side of the
house from about 250 back into healthy levels. He placed
a few more in the kitchen to cancel out the effects
of my microwave, a dimmer switch and some of my kitchen
appliances. The outlet where I have the TV and VCR/DVD
player needed one and my office needed several to cancel
out the effects of all my office equipment. The office
started out around 250 and we were able to bring it
down to about 50.
How the Filters Effectively
Doubled the Living Area in My Home
Before I had the Graham Stetzer filters installed, I
was only using about half of my house. There were beautiful
areas that I avoided because when I sat there for longer
than 5 or 10 minutes I just didn’t feel quite
right. It turns out that all of those areas had meter
readings from about 200-250. The areas of my house that
I loved the most and spent the most time in had initial
readings of 18 or less. Since I have had the filters
installed, it now feels good to be anywhere in the house.
Furthermore, I can now spend hours at my computer without
experiencing a drain just from being in my office.
When I reported back to the electrician a few weeks
later, he was, of course, pleased that I liked the results
so well. He wasn’t sure how much of a difference
it would make for me since I wasn’t sick and,
in his opinion, my dirty electricity numbers were not
all that high. He frequently sees meter readings of
500, 1000, or more. When the numbers are that high,
the effects of installing the filters tend to be dramatic,
especially for folks who have blood sugar control problems,
multiple sclerosis and fibromyalgia. He pointed out
that the symptoms of fibromyalgia are almost identical
to the symptoms of radiation poisoning. He didn’t
have experience with folks with arthritis, but I imagine
that because arthritis is such a stress related illness,
removing the stress of dirty electricity is likely to
have a strong positive effects.
One Way to Test Your Sensitivity
This electrician also suggested that one way to test
your sensitivity to the effects of dirty electricity
is to visit a store that has lots of fluorescent lights
(like Home Depot). Notice if you feel a little off when
you are receiving that kind of exposure and whether
you feel worse the longer you are there.

my filters, you can do so through the contact information

Installing Filters Yourself
It is not that hard to install the filters yourself.
All you need is the meter and the filters. They can
be purchased at:
Assuming you need 20 filters and the meter, doing it
yourself will run you about $700 plus shipping. I know
it isn’t cheap, but for some of you it may be
Let Me Know
If you do install these filters in your home or office,
please let me know what effects, if any, they have.
