We give you practical tools to limit your tech toxin exposure and prioritize your health without sacrificing technology.
In each episode, we interview passionate leaders in the health and technology space who give you the tools to navigate and thrive within our technology-driven world. Our goal is to demystify the dangers of tech and bring you practical advice to protect yourself from EMFs, blue light, internet overuse, and how to recognize the signs of tech addiction.
In today's digital age, where technology is an integral part of our lives, the effects of Wi-Fi on our health and well-being are often overlooked. However, an increasing number of individuals are recognizing the potential impact of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) and transformative effects of turning off Wi-Fi on sleep quality.
In this episode, Alexis Fedor, a mother of three young children, shares her experience of living healthier with technology. Alexis discusses the radical changes she observed in her children after turning off the Wi-Fi and eliminating tech toxins from their lives and highlights the importance of reducing EMF exposure for children. Today’s discussion emphasizes the need for parents to prioritize their children's sleeping environment and make conscious decisions about the products they use to minimize exposure to toxins.
While it may not be possible to control every aspect of a child's life, finding a balance between health and enjoyment is crucial. By being informed and making mindful choices, parents can create a healthier environment for their children to thrive in. This inspiring conversation offers encouragement and practical advice for parents navigating the challenges of raising children in a digital world. Tune in to learn how mindful living can positively impact your family's well-being.

"I have decided a lot to make these one-time decisions that have large impacts on our family.
So, we've looked at schools in the past and there has been 5G towers right across the street from the school. And that was a big no, even no matter how much we loved the school. My kid was not going to be there for 30 plus hours a week next to a 5G tower." [00:08:44] – Alexis Fedor
"He made the decision to get rid of the app. He even went to his Nana and said, Nana, I want you to delete the app because it's not helping. It gives me bad dreams. I don't like the way it makes me feel.” [00:12:55] – Alexis Fedor
"The constant changing of the screen, the color, the music, it feels like you're on drugs. Even as an adult. I watched this stuff and I'm perplexed that kids could even sit in front of this and for hours and hours, and then you take 'em away and then they have meltdowns." [00:15:42] – Alexis Fedor
