Once the home oasis is established, it is possible to attempt to make changes in the workplace as well. If the patient is self-employed, this is usually fairly easy to arrange. If he or she works for someone else, it may require some argument to convince an employer to make changes for the patient’s benefit. Sometimes it is easier to seek a transfer within a company or even another job which is less harmful to one’s health.
In some cases, however, employers have been impressed enough with the change in an employee’s health, including increased productivity, to voluntarily make ecologic changes in the workplace. After all, it is in their long-range interests, too, to have more productive employees. In some cases, employers have eventually come in as patients after seeing this method bring about improvements in the life of an employee.
Naturally, some polluted workshops are almost beyond repair for the ecology patient. In such cases, patients can take their health grievances to their unions or to the appropriate government agencies for adjustment.
