Today’s topic is a little bit different from our usual — but I’d venture to say that it is one that actually impacts all of us. And now, since so many of us are now working entirely online from our homes, the effect is even greater.
My guest today, Risa Suzuki, is a Building Biologist and an expert in EMF — electromagnetic fields. She’s also the author of the What the EMF?: How to Protect Your Home from EMF Exposure, Improve Sleep, Reduce Anxiety, and Live a Happier, Healthier Life!
This topic of EMF has a peripheral penetration into all of our lives but it is not one that we love to look at. It is an inconvenient truth for many of us. There is no doubt that the electromagnetic frequencies that we are exposed to have an impact on our health and bodies.
What I loved about my interview with Risa today was the opportunity to start to break down what we need to know related to EMF and where we can take concerted action so that we can be informed citizens in a Wi-Fi-connected world. When you know better, you can do better; and in this episode, Risa shares how we can begin to implement strategic changes, protect ourselves in compelling ways, and, overall, live a healthier and more energetic life.

BADASS FUEL — Fuel for Badass Women
Scientifically Supported Ingredients | Support, Not Replacement | Non-GMO
Two years ago, someone asked me what supplements I take to maintain my health, energy, and edge — and they were surprised that I only took four things consistently. For myself and my patients, there are four basics that support — at a foundational level — nearly every system in our bodies. In my quest for the highest quality ingredients and the easiest system for consistently incorporating supplementation to my routine, I formulated and manufactured my own line of foundational supplements. Trusted for myself and my patients, and under the guidance of your own healthcare provider, I’m excited to invite you to check out our foundational product line: Badass Basics. Learn more or order the products yourself by visiting BadassFuel.com!
CALL TO ACTION
When you know better, you can do better. In the spirit of this idea, Risa and I would love to know what you will be doing in your own life to reduce your EMF exposure now that we have all learned about its dangers and how we can better protect ourselves. Be sure to follow-up with us on The Entrepology Collective and let us know!
“Think of EMFs as the invisible forcefield that comes out from anything that is powered by electricity: … your laptop, your cellphone, and also things like your TV, your household appliances, … and powerlines.” — Risa Suzuki
“There are all these horrible things that EMFs do to your body — even if you don’t feel anything.” — Risa Suzuki
“When it comes to risk and exposure, it really comes down to, with the EMFs, … it’s: how much is bombarding your body? And then, how long? Like, what’s the exposure time? With EMFs, you want to reduce both of those.” — Risa Suzuki
“If we could see WiFi right now, we would not be able to see across the room.” — Risa Suzuki
“There’s not a lot of historical, … mainstream knowledge that EMFs are bad for your health. It’s kind of like the smoking industry, 50 years ago.” — Risa Suzuki
“If you’re sitting at your desk and you have a big charging station in front of you, move it away from you or unplug it.” — Risa Suzuki
