The Lab Markers Your Doctor May Be Reading Wrong for Optimal Aging with Dr. Sabrina Solt

Today on Midlife Conversations, I chat with Dr. Sabrina Solt, a specialist in regenerative and anti-aging medicine, about important lab markers frequently overlooked by general practitioners. We dive into the significance of ferritin levels, debunking common misconceptions about low ferritin and its benefits for optimal aging. Sabrina explains the nuances of cholesterol, emphasizing the importance of triglyceride levels, the HDL to LDL ratio, and the implications for middle-aged health. We also touch upon hormonal changes, including the role of estrogen and cortisol, and how to interpret thyroid markers for better health management. The discussion rounds out with insights on the benefits of peptides for midlife wellness and practical tips on advocating for our health.

The Power of Mindset: Beating Cancer and Embracing Life with Heather Chauvin

Today on Midlife Conversations I sit down with Heather Chauvin, a leadership coach known for her incredible emotional intelligence and work with women. Heather’s story is one of resilience and transformation; diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer in 2013, she used this life-altering challenge to redefine her approach to life, focusing on turning obstacles into opportunities.

Do We Need To Worry About EMF’s with Nick Pineault

You may have heard about Electric and magnetic fields (EMFs) and what they can do to your body. I know I personally have A LOT of questions about them and how they are affecting us – do we need to be taking them seriously? How concerned should we be? And I found the EMF expert, Nick Pineault! He is the #1 bestselling author of The Non-Tinfoil Guide to EMFs and an advocate for safe technologies. The EMFs emitted by cell phones are not only potential cause for things like brain tumors, but also impact our hormones. There are definitely short term and long term risks to consider in regard to EMFs and what’s worse, is that even today, health regulatory agencies continue to claim that these exposures do nothing to the human body. 

Do EMFs Affect Everyone? 

Yes EMFs “affect” everyone, but not everyone FEELS it right away. Some people get headaches while talking on the phone. Everyone has the same exposure to risk whether or not they can FEEL it as easily as the next. Just like you can’t TASTE or FEEL the toxins in your food, you can’t always FEEL the EMFs.

How Do EMFs Affect Our Health? 

The way phones work is by sending invisible signals to cell towers or WiFi. These signals, that are in the form of EMFs, are known to lead to problems in DNA repair, detoxification in cells, and a lowering in production of cellular energy. These external EMFs also affect our sleep quality by disrupting/interrupting our natural brain waves and thus, impacting our sleep. Over time, exposure does have an affect on our health. 

Most Dangerous EMF Exposures

The most dangerous EMF exposures are from devices that are TOUCHING your body. For instance, holding the phone up to your ear, holding the phone in your hand, keeping your phone in your pocket, wearing ear buds, etc. Cell phone radiation is an endocrine disruptor. In men, sperm count goes down when they keep a phone in their pocket. Women’s fertility and hormonal balance  is also impacted by carrying the phone in your pocket (or in your bra). There has also been instances where breast cancer has been found in quadrants of the breast where tumors are less likely to form, yet, they are forming almost in the shape of a cell phone! 

Do the Chips for Your Phones Work to Block EMFs? 

I fell into the ads for those little EMF blockers you can put on the back of your phone. But I learned in this interview that scientists are not currently backing the claims that these can help emit EMF exposure from your phones. It’s perhaps just another marketing snake oil opportunity 🙁 

How Can We Make Changes to Avoid These EMFs? 

  • Turn off your phone or put it on airplane mode (and disconnect WiFi) and Bluetooth before you go to sleep – or put it in another room if you do not want to keep it on airplane mode for emergencies. Make sure it’s at least 2 feet away from your bed. 
  • Consider what else is in your bedroom emitting EMFs. Anything wireless should be turned off when you sleep. Turn off your headphones, turn off your electronics, etc. 
  • Download the material you want on your phone ahead of time and keep your phone on Bluetooth when you’re carrying it so it isn’t downloading/sending mobile data via EMFs. 
  • Try to use your phone on speaker as much as possible. Limit the amount of time on your phone or your wireless earbuds. Try to use the old wired version of earbuds. 
  • Get a Shield Your Body or Defender Shield phone case.
  • Don’t use your laptop on your lap. Ideally, put it on a table when you’re using it. 
  • Get in nature more. Disconnect. Go off the grid.

Nick Pineault is a man on a mission. A passionate advocate of safe tech and the bestselling author of The Non-Tinfoil Guide to EMFs, he’s busy raising awareness of the health problems associated with the electromagnetic pollution we’re exposed to by our smartphones, laptops, Wi-Fi routers and other electronic devices. 

Ahead of Nick’s upcoming EMF Hazards Summit (which this year highlights the hidden epidemic of electro-hypersensitivity), we sat down to talk about environmental toxins, his top 3 EMF mitigation strategies, and his chat with presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy on corruption at the Federal Communications Commission…

In this episode, you will learn:

  • Potential health impacts of EMF
  • What are ‘safe’ technologies we can use
  • How to reduce EMF waves
  • What devices are giving off the most EMF
  • Should we be more concerned now than before?

Fascia, Cellulite, and Recovery with Tamara Renee

I had to have Tamara on Midlife Conversations to talk all about fascia in midlife. With over 30 years of experience in the aging well space, she is transforming not just how we look, but also how we FEEL as we age. She is one of the first people who actually taught me about nutrition over two decades ago! Most of us understand that nutrition and activity plays an important role in our overall health, but fascia creates another important layer in our health that has been ignored for so long because it took so long to learn about and acknowledge it.
