The Growing Concern with Electromagnetic Radiation and Frequencies

With Dr. Carlos Ritter

In the beginning of his career as a neurologist, Dr. Carlos Ritter began to notice a peculiar similarity in stage 2 of sleep between some of his patients and those with chronic illnesses across the board—it was some sort of toxin messing with the body. After years of research in biology, neurology, and physics, Dr. Ritter came to understand this toxin could be coming from an invisible source all around us: electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs).

On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, I talk to Dr. Ritter about everything EMF: how Dr. Ritter’s career and education evolved around this topic, how EMFs and radiation can affect DNA, and importantly, some simple (and free) steps we can take in our own homes and lives that have the biggest impact on our sleep and resilience against EMFs.

For more on Dr. Ritter, you can visit his website here. Also mentioned in the podcast are the book, Handbook of Biological Effects of Electromagnetic Fields, the episode of This American Life, and the researcher Olle Johansson

Dr. Carlos Ritter

Dr. Carlos Ritter, who has spent the last 15 years working to actively mitigate the effects of electromagnetic radiation. Now as CEO of EMF Knights, Dr. Ritter shields homes from EMF, protecting individual’s “biological restoration pathways” during sleep. As a doctor in pediatric neurology and extensive research in brain function, biology, and physics, Dr. Ritter has developed new protective technologies to safeguard people from the harmful effects of EMF.
