MELISSA WEAVER, B.S. graduated from Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana in 1977, earning a Degree in Ornamental Horticulture and worked for the Horticultural Department.
In March of 1979, Melissa moved to Sebastopol, California to teach at the Santa Rosa Junior College Experimental Gardens in conjunction with the Farallones Institute in Occidental, California (now known as the Occidental Arts and Ecology Center), where she taught Organic Biodynamic Gardening.
Shortly after moving to California in 1979, Melissa was introduced to the world of Alternative Medicine. She was invited to attend classes at the Pacific College of Naturopathic Medicine in Monte Rio, California, while studying to become a Certified Massage Therapist. And after 2 years of intensive study at the California School of Herbal Medicine in Forestville, she opened Calistoga Massage Therapy and Health Education Center in 1982.
In 1999, Melissa and her 13 year old son became mysteriously ill. After 4 long debilitating years, and after visiting countless health practitioners, she discovered their persistent, disabling symptoms were being caused by a combination of toxic mold and high magnetic fields in their home. After relocating and regaining her health in 2003, Melissa delved into extensive research in the field of Environmental Medicine and initiated some free ongoing public health classes at Palm Drive Hospital in Sebastopol, California. Through her research she discovered environmental pollutants and electromagnetic fields (EMF’s) to be the primary causes of most chronic health challenges.
During this time she noticed many of her clients were not responding to traditional lifestyle/dietary changes of wholistic therapies and suspected EMF’s to be the culprit since wireless computers, cordless and cellular phones were becoming popular. Since then, she has helped countless others understand and overcome chronic conditions by helping to remedy and reduce EMf’s and other environmental factors while supporting the immune and neurological systems.
Melissa now specializes as an Environmental Health Educator and Consultant after working as a Wholistic Health Practitioner for over 30 years. She is also the CEO of Enhanced Health Systems, distributor of safe, proven and effective environmental health and immune support products. She is Founder and Coordinator of the Center for Sustainable Health in Sebastopol, California, a public service educational and support center, formerly called the Sonoma County Healthy Home Network. Melissa is also an active member of the EMF Safety Council, a group which informs and educates communities, professionals and governments about the risks, dangers and safety factors associated with EMF’s.
Presently she may be contacted at Enhanced Health Systems located in Sebastopol. California by phone 707-823-3235, and website www.sustainablehealth.com.
