MYF 48 | Technology & Your Fertility: What You Need to Know with Brian Hoyer, NTP
Welcome to Episode 48!
In episode 48, we interview Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, certified Geobiologist, and electromagnetic field (EMF) expert, Brian Hoyer. In our modern world, we're exposed to technologies and frequencies that our bodies have never experienced in human history, like cell phones, wireless, magnetic fields, and even the electricity in our homes. We don't think about these exposures because we can't see or hear them in our environment and there's been very little rigorous long-term safety testing for their effects on human health up to this point. But there's now growing evidence that EMFs actually can cause harm to our bodies and can even affect fertility. Brian has dedicated his career to understanding and educating the public about EMFs and owns a company called Shielded Healing. He and his team travel the country doing home assessments for EMF exposure and making recommendations to help consumers protect themselves during the time it matters most: at night when they sleep!
In this episode, Brian shares:
The different types of EMFs we're exposed to and the specific technologies they come from
How these frequencies can cause disruptions in our bodies, including with fertility and baby's development
Simple, low-cost steps you can start taking right now to limit your exposure to EMF
How you can get a more thorough assessment of your home environment and transform your bedroom into an EMF-free healing space
We also talk about Kristin's personal experience working with Brian to assess her home and shield her bedroom space against multiple types of EMF.
