Do you love to travel but hate how it makes you feel? Do you wish you could visit friends and family more often, and not suffer from all the traveling? If you’re ready to travel more, start living your life again, and feel good while doing it, then you don’t want to miss this webinar from SYB’s in-house EMF Specialist Cathy Cooke.
During this webinar, recorded on November 3, 2022, you’ll learn the top three things you should be doing every time you travel, including:
- The top two radioprotective supplements that will help protect your body from the onslaught of EMF’s;
- The best protection devices to bring with you on the plane;
- Why your actions today, could improve your travel experiences months or even years in the future.

I think we are correct. Now I apologize for that. Okay, so brief outline of today’s content. We’ll have intros that’s going to be really brief to let more people show up. And then we will get into the main content. And that will be about 25 minutes. Then as usual, we have a special announcement with a offer just for those of you live here in the room, followed by a q&a and q&a can run anywhere from historically 10 minutes to 90 minutes depending on how many of you have questions for Kathy. So very quickly about me, my name is R. I’m the CEO of SY be the host of the healthier tech podcast formerly faculty at the University of Southern California along with my father, Dr. Martin Blanc, I co authored overpowered about the science of EMF health effects. And this all follows a 20 year career in software engineering. So we wanted to do this webinar today, because we hear from a lot of people from all around the world about how difficult it has become to travel, specifically flying. It’s literally one of the top three things that I am my customer service team are asked about the increasing amount of EMF devices that you’re exposed to, in a very confined space has increased exponentially in the last few years. Even without these exposures flying is inherently unhealthy and foreign to what the human body can understand what we’ve evolved to cope with. The human body is simply not meant to move through space at several 100 miles per hour across time zones in a matter of minutes, and sit in a chair inside of a metal box at 30,000 feet. But of course, we live in the modern world and this type of travel has become a normal part of our lives. Many of us live far from friends and family and we’d like to see them. Many people need to travel for work or for health care. For some people traveling is a passion. There are a lot of reasons why sometimes we need to get on a plane. And because of that, we want to share with you how you can do that more comfortably, how to protect your body and how to enjoy your journey with more health and vitality. And for that we called on our own in house senior EMF consultant Cathy cook to help us out. I know this topic is a passion for her. And as I suspected she has loads of information to share. Pardon me one second zoom controls are being obnoxiously in the way. So Kathy is a board is board certified in holistic nutrition as well as a certified building biology environmental consultant, and certified electromagnetic radiation specialist with the building Biology Institute. In her practice, she assesses buildings for anything that may be causing health problems. This includes indoor air quality, mold, chemical off gassing ventilation, combustible gas products, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, radon, and, of course, EMF exposure. She has combined holistic nutrition and building biology to address both the body and the environment to help our clients achieve optimal health. Cathy currently lives in Boise, Idaho, and you can check her website at Whole Home and body health.com. And just quickly before I introduce Kathy, a quick reminder to everybody, we will be having a q&a session following the presentation. So if at any point questions occur to you don’t put them into the chat pod, put them into the q&a pod because that’s where we’re going to look when it’s time for the q&a. So with that, I’m happy to introduce Kathy. Hi, Kathy.
Cathy Cooke 3:45
Hello, our Hello, everyone in this fantastic shield your body community. Really happy to be here with you guys today. And talk about this topic. And like are mentioned, I’m very passionate about this topic. And the reason is because in full disclosure, I kind of love flying. Don’t get me wrong, I love to visit other parts of the world and experience new cultures and places I love to travel. I just don’t like the process of getting there. So it’s the act of traveling that has just been really challenging for me for quite a few years really. And I find it to be super stressful getting up super early in the morning. You’re in tight, confined spaces, you have poor quality food choices, you’re rushing to catch flights and make your connections. Sometimes, oftentimes you have questionable lodging, you gotta rent a car and all the things that just cause travel in itself to be super stressful. But in the last few years, we can add a huge EMF exposure to the list. So not only are we sitting in a metal box in the sky, but our seatmates most of the time are wearing wire was earbuds, they’re using Wi Fi on their phones or their laptops, they’re wearing smartwatches. And who knows what else these days. So for those of us that are sensitive to EMF, this can cause a lot of symptoms, as you know. And for some of us, it can just make flying completely impossible. But then on the other hand, for those of us that aren’t especially sensitive, we’re still getting bombarded with human made EMFs that can leave us feeling groggy, confused, irritable, and patient, it weakens our immune system and can cause loads of oxidative stress. So for many of us, it can feel like it’s just not worth it. And if that’s the case, and you’re like me, you avoid air travel at all costs. But there are times when we can’t avoid it. Or some of us fly regularly. And we just want to be healthier and feel better while we do it. So that’s why we really wanted to bring you some of our best tips on how to do just that. So let’s take a quick second to look at some of the health statistics regarding flying. So when I was digging into the science regarding how flying and EMF impacts the body, I found some pretty interesting information. There are a few studies you can find online that speak to the long term health outcomes of flight personnel. And one study flight attendants reported more health problems than the general population, which is probably not much of a surprise to anyone here. Not only do they have very stressful jobs, but they can experience constant sleep challenges from altered timezones, constantly changing circadian rhythms, several known and probable carcinogens, including chemicals from the airplane, but they’re also exposed to cosmic radiation on an almost daily basis. And no cosmic radiation is a naturally occurring electromagnetic field. Being so close to it inside a metal box 30,000 feet in the air is not. So prolonged exposure to cosmic radiation in conjunction with a bombardment of human made EMF very likely has negative health implications. So according to the Harvard flight attendant study, flight attendants had a higher prevalence of every cancer that was examined, especially breast cancer, melanoma, and non melanoma skin cancer among females, confirming multiple us in European Studies. job tenure was linked to non melanoma skin cancer among females with Borderline associations for melanoma and non melanoma skin cancer among males. So this information was based on a 2014 to 15 Study survey of 5366 flight attendants. So it’s worth noting that the CDC did do their own study on flight attendants and did not come to the same correlations at the Harvard School of Public Health did. However, the research for Harvard is ongoing and data continues to be collected. So if you want to look more at this, you can visit this website, the Harvard flight attendants study, as you can see on your screen to find out a little bit more about that. So of course, airline pilots are also impacted, not just the attendance. And research has also shown an increase in specific cancers as well as altered circadian rhythms, and other negative health outcomes among pilots.
You can find more about this research at the website listed here at disciples of flight.com. Now remember, we’re talking about flight personnel who spent a great deal of time in the air every week. Most of us have a tiny fraction of this exposure. So I don’t want anyone to worry about this too much. And of course, here at syv, we’re about solutions, not doom and gloom. So there are numerous things you can do to protect yourself while flying. In fact, I was so excited about this opportunity to help others learn about the tips I use when I fly, I actually decided to create an entire course around it. So I’m just going to take this opportunity now to announce the launch of our brand new course four steps to fly in health care healthier and feeling better. Because when I started to really dig into this topic, there was just so much information. I knew it couldn’t fit into the space of a webinar. The course is just jam packed with information ranging from what it means to be electro hypersensitive, how EMFs impact the body, how to lessen your symptoms, to EMF, how to prepare for the flight, what to do when you get on the plane, what to do immediately after the flight what to do at your destination, and just a whole lot more. Now I know that I wanted to wait until after today’s webinar to announce this but I’m sorry, I just couldn’t wait and see excited about it. But I’m pretty sure that he’s going to have a really great offer for everyone regarding this course at the end, so do stay tuned and stay with us. So the course itself has seven modules over two hours of videos 30 Plus handouts, checklists, over one and a half hours of bonus videos where I teach you how to test your home hotel wherever you’re staying for EMF, but we’re only here for a short time today. And I wanted to give you some of my biggest takeaways from the course so that you can start implementing them right away. So, as a quick reminder, or possibly as a quick introduction, for those of you that don’t know how Amis impact your body, let’s take a quick look at how electromagnetic fields impact us on a cellular level. So ultimately, it comes down to oxidative stress. And this is important because this is going to help us correlate the information that we’re going to see in a minute on how to combat this type of exposure. So thanks to the work of some researchers like Dr. Martin Paul, from Washington State University, we know that EMF exposure causes oxidative stress on a cellular level. And if you haven’t looked into the work of Dr. Paul, I encourage you to do so he’s got some great videos on YouTube that you can dig into this much deeper and short. What he and other researchers have found is that when a cell is exposed to non native EMF s, they can activate the voltage gated calcium channels on the cell. So we know that there should be abundant calcium on the outside of the cell. But when there’s too much inside the cell, this is when problems arise. So we know now that all EMFs activate the voltage gated calcium channels in the cell membrane and increase this intracellular calcium ions. So they artificially the gates open because they’re controlled by voltage and we are in contact with voltage from EMF and then all this calcium floods into the cell. And then this increased cellular or intracellular calcium can act to stimulate nitric oxide synthesis. This leads to the creation of Flexi nitrite which leads to free radicals and ultimately oxidative stress. Okay, so that is a very short, brief overview. But it kind of helps us understand this on a on a on a bigger level here. So then what happens? Well, this oxidative stress leads to a host of symptoms, including all those you see here on this list, plus more this is by no means an exhaustive list. So I don’t know about you, but for me personally, whenever I fly, I experience insomnia, tinnitus, irritability, anxiety, headaches, blood sugar, imbalance, weakness and heart palpitations. Right. So why do I want to fly if I’m gonna experience all of that, of course, this isn’t only because of EMF, but you know, the entire experience of traveling. So I’m just curious, I’d like to see if anybody wants to pop in the chat. what the symptoms are that you you personally experience. I’m always very interested in that because everybody’s very different. And then that can, you know, help us when other people are experiencing some of these symptoms.

Cathy Cooke 13:42
Yeah, I have actually measured that. So I, I often will take my meters on the plane and do this very discreetly. I haven’t I have the last time I was on a plane and we had the screens on the seats. I didn’t get too much of an increase from that. But it was a quick, short little test. So it wasn’t exhaustive. You
R Blank 14:06
know, the last time I took a flight, which was this month, well, actually now last month in October, the plane was a new airplane and it didn’t have screens in the seats. What it had was phone holders. So it was encouraging people because the in flight entertainment system was delivered over Wi Fi so it encouraged people to put their phones, right where you would normally have those in flight displays. Oh, yeah. So Mark says heart palpitations, anxiety, lack of oxygen headaches, Rosalynn says fatigue, numbing and burning pain. And Rhonda says definitely anxiety as well as aching muscles. Do these sound familiar to you? Kathy?
Cathy Cooke 14:47
100% Yep, yep, yep. Yep. Very, very, very similar. Yeah, I’m looking at that those. Yeah, that’s exactly that’s exactly how I feel. It’s great. That’s very, very common. It’s such a bar. Okay, so then the big question is, well, what do we do about this? Which brings me to my first tip for you, which may be obvious, maybe not. But antioxidants, of course, are the way to combat oxidative stress, one of the best ways. And thankfully, we can get loads of antioxidants from our food. And we got to do that a couple times a day. So you can also get them from supplements. When I’m flying. I do both. I like to load up on the antioxidants in supplement form your Oh, we lost your screen. Oh,
R Blank 15:41
I’m sorry. Yeah, when I was trying to respond to somebody in the chat, and I can’t do that. So I apologize. Please proceed.
Cathy Cooke 15:49
So yeah, so supplements or food. You know, our daily choose choices that we in our foods should be potentially geared towards high antioxidant level, depending on what kind of diet you’re on unless you’re doing carnivore or something like that. But this, this can be very helpful in addition to supplementation. So I’m sure that most of you know antioxidants come from our deeply pigmented color rich fruits and vegetables. So as they say, eating the rainbow is a really good idea. Know why you’re making your food choices, even starting a few days before you fly anytime, really, you just want to think about loading up on these antioxidant rich foods. And I would say bringing them with you when you fly. Because we all know how difficult it can be to find good choices at in airports and while on the road. And I talked about this at length in the course. But you know you It surprises me how many people don’t travel with food. My backpack is like full of food when I get on the plane. I’ve never had a problem with it. TSA has never, you know, they’re just like, Oh, you got all this food, but they always let me on with it. So I just kind of prepare everything, package it and little Pyrex containers, and I bring it with me because God forbid, I’m caught in an airport with airport food, it’s not going to happen. So I definitely encourage everybody to bring food with you. Okay, so, in addition to this supplementing with antioxidants, I think is really important, especially with this higher dose of oxidative stress that we’re gonna get while traveling. And this is something I’ve been doing for many years. And I’ve noticed a big difference. So I use many, I mean, there’s so many great antioxidants and the ones I choose, it varies depending on how long my flight is, how I’m feeling that day, what kinds of things I’m going through in my life at that moment, you know, things like that. But it would be way too complicated to try and explain all of that in the webinars. So I wanted to narrow it down to my top two favorites. And I gotta tell you, this was pretty challenging, because I have such a great list, and I do cover them on the course but these are the two that I simply will not fly without. And they’re very accessible and relatively inexpensive. So, drumroll please. They are magnesium and rosemary. So of course magnesium isn’t a is a mineral, not an antioxidant, but it is the ultimate calcium channel blocker. So if you’re not already taking magnesium, you really want to consider it. So remember, I’m not a doctor, I’m not giving medical advice here. If you decide to try a specific supplement or diet you always want to check with your doctor first. That said, magnesium works really well to combat the effects of the artificially opened voltage gated calcium channels that we get with EMF exposure. And in addition, magnesium is just it’s got numerous benefits including supporting energy production, cardiovascular health, nervous system regulation, musculoskeletal health, it just it’s kind of does everything and so it is one of my favorite supplements by far. I’m a big fan of taking magnesium in supplement form so you can get that concentrated amount. But there are some notable foods sources of magnesium that are worth mentioning. And some of the highest sources are spinach, pumpkin seeds, almonds, lima beans, and everybody’s favorite chocolate right so there’s some others some grains I’m not the biggest fan of grains per se for most people. Avocados have a little bit bananas have a little bit but these are you know actually spinach lima beans, pumpkin seeds are the top three and chocolate has a good a good dose too. So, I will say for anyone that’s dealing with oxalate issues or has a propensity to kidney stones or or gallbladder stones, spinach and chocolate are actually We need your friends because they’re both extremely high in oxalates. So our almonds, actually, so those are best avoided. But if you don’t have those problems, then good for you, that’s you can enjoy them at will.
Okay, so rosemary, one of the most under appreciated plants, in my opinion. So everybody loves to talk about tumeric, and blueberries, and kale and ice and all these so called superfoods, the little rosemary hardly gets much attention. Yet, there is some really impressive research on the radio protective benefits of rosemary, specifically rosmarinic acid, which is the active component that protects against radiation. So I really love Rosemary for these benefits. But also because it’s so incredibly accessible, you can cook with it, drink it in a tea, taking a capsule, use it in the air as an essential oil, or my favorite way of taking it, especially when flying is as a tincture. So I just love rosemary, and it’s one of the few spices that I actually use almost every day. So those are my top two faves. I hope that, you know many of you are probably employing these already. But you know that the rosemary really gets little attention. So it’s delicious. And it is so delicious. And it smells lovely. And you can grow it on your windowsill. I’m so good. Okay, so that brings me to tip number two, which is to use protection devices. Now, this might sound obvious to you. And perhaps you’re already doing this. But I do want to take a moment to point out some important things here. It’s not as cut and dry, as you may expect. So when I say protection devices, I don’t mean pendants, necklaces, Harmonizers. And these subtle energy devices. There’s an awful lot of those products out there. And I get questions about them probably every day. But the fact remains that we just, we can’t scientifically verify if they work. I know that there’s live blood cell analysis, and heart rate variability and muscle testing, which are all valid to some degree. But they’re also you can influence those types of tests. And it’s not, I mean, for me to make a recommendation on these, I need more than that, I want to see my meters change, I want to I want to see a little bit more hard science. Again, I use those tools. But in this case, I’m not ready to recommend one for that reason. Now, if you’re using them and getting benefit from them. Awesome, that’s great. But there isn’t one single product that I’ve come across that gives consistent results across the board for all people, some of these one person will get benefit from and then another person feels worse. Some people spend, you know, I just spent $5,000 on this thing. And I have no idea if it’s working well like that’s, you know, that’s a big investment to not know. So the thing that concerns me the most though, is that I’ve seen many people feel better when they begin using them. And then weeks or even months later, they actually feel worse. And I’m just, you know, that’s not a risk that I’m willing to take with my clients. Because obviously, I don’t want that to happen to anybody. So what I prefer are actual fabrics or items that specifically block EMF. So the items that most of my clients have success with are things like hats, blankets, shawls, scarves, you know, we can definitely verify these work with our professional grade equipment. So, it is important to note though, that not everyone feels benefit from clothing or fabrics. So while most people do, there are some people that might actually feel worse when they wear them. So this is something that you definitely want to test drive before flying. So there are a few reasons for this. One is that not all products are created equal. Some companies produce low quality items with cheap materials that don’t work or they off gas chemicals. And if you’re EMF sensitive, it’s highly likely that you’re sensitive to chemicals too. And obviously you don’t want another insult there. So with these products, it truly is a situation of you get what you pay for. Of course, you know I’m a clear fan of the shield your body products that are made with the highest quality materials and really do work. I do discuss a few other brands inside the course. But you know, I just want to talk a little bit more about another reason why some people don’t feel well with the clothing is that if they’re in a high electric field environment, the clothes can actually attract some of these electric fields and some sensitive people
can react to that. So most people that I know to solve this problem, they wear an underlayer with a protective fabric over it so that it’s not touching their skin, or the hats typically don’t cause that issue. If you’re maybe you’re like our and you don’t have a lot of hair that may be hats, I haven’t seen that much of an issue with it’s more of like the long sleeve T shirts, oftentimes that you want to wear over another layer. So and again, not everybody has that problem, you just want to test drive it before you get on a plane so that you can know, you know, know what you’re getting into. Um, okay, so I actually though, you know, having said all that, for a lot of people that I know, using these protective fabrics can literally be the difference of, I can’t or cannot fly. So without them, they wouldn’t be able to fly at all. And with them, it’s tolerable, and they feel much better. So they’re definitely worth investigating. Okay, so my third and final tip, which is a little more elusive, but incredibly important, is to create a resilient body. So what do I mean by this? Creating resiliency means that you support your body, every aspect of your body to be as healthy as possible, including physical, emotional, and mental health. So that when you’re exposed to insults like EMF, you will be able to handle them with much more ease. So your body’s defense mechanisms will take care of the stress, and you’ll feel much less some much less symptomatic as a result. So as you can imagine, this is a huge topic. And in fact, the majority of the course is spent identifying all the ways that you can create resiliency, as well as looking at the underlying precursors to why somebody becomes sensitive. Generally, in my work, I see that there was an event or a trigger, an infection, a trauma, exposure, you know, something that trips us over, and then we become sensitive. So we got to identify those underlying precursors, and I lay them all out in the course. But then, you know, what do we do about that. So, it really is kind of a hard truth, that most of us are not giving attention fully to our physical health, our mental health and our emotional health. And some of us are great at exercising every day eating a beautiful diet, sleeping well, yet, we kind of neglect working on our past traumas or our emotions. And some of us dive headfirst into healing our motions, but we can’t find the discipline to move our bodies and eat well. You know, to be honest, some of us try really hard to do all three, but think we can figure it out on our own, when we could really use some guidance. And then some of us just like to ignore it all, and keep searching for that magic pill. Now, I have done all of these, I’m guilty of every single one of these at some point in my life. So if you can relate to what I’m saying, you know, don’t feel bad, we’re all human, it’s just human behavior to try to find the easiest ways. But unfortunately, if we want to make that true healing, we got to do the hard work. So all the magnesium and rosemary in the world, while very helpful, won’t be enough if we don’t work on our bodies first and all the parts of our bodies. So if this is an area that you neglected, this is just a friendly reminder that putting some attention here can bring you a tremendous amount of healing, which will leave the body in a in a parasympathetic state, instead of the sympathetic state, we want to put it in the parasympathetic state that we all desire. And when our mental and emotional body is healthy, our physical body will follow.
So I can’t tell you how many people I know who have suffered from physical ailments for years, even decades, including being sensitive to EMS, that found almost complete recovery from their symptoms when they finally address their past traumas and emotional scars. Now, I’m not here saying that it’s easy. But this is an area that must be addressed if we truly want to enjoy optimal health. And when we do, everything becomes easier, including traveling. So by beginning the journey today, you can yield massive results, weeks, months and even years later. So, you know, like I said, we talked about this at length, and of course, but I want to give you at least one powerful tip you can start using right away to begin to shift your body into that parasympathetic nervous system, which is really the first step to creating a resilient body. And that would be to practice your favorite breathing techniques. Some of you may be shaking your heads, this may sound overly simple, but you gotta believe there is no more effective way to instantly bring your body into a calm and relaxed state. So there are several different methods out there. And if you have a favorite one, great, I encourage you to do that. My two favorites are the 478 breath. And the Wim Hof breathing technique. So these are both incredibly powerful breathing techniques that I recommend to all of my clients are simple, they’re free, they’re quick, and you can find guided instructions for both of them online. Again, that’s the 478 breath. And the Wim Hof breathing technique, which I suggest you do daily for the most profound benefits. And in fact, since we have time here, we’re going to we’re going to go ahead and do one. So I’ve got a three quick three minute video that are pulling up for us by Dr. Weil, who famously teaches this technique. And so we’re going to do it. So I teach this.
Art with loss of respect. Yeah. Okay, sorry, before we get ahead of ourselves, I want to just help everybody to get into a state where you can really take advantage of this. So I wanted to I wanted to do this with the video by Dr. Weil because his voice is just Ultra soothing and calming. And he’s just, he’s got the perfect voice for so we’ve got three minutes, you guys, I know you’re all busy, you may have multiple tabs open, I want you to try to just come to this for three minutes, turn off your phone, which I really hope is not on right now. Close the door, if you can just get comfortable for a minute. Okay, so you can sit on the floor, you can lay down on a couch, you can rest in a chair with good posture. I just want you to take a second to get quiet and comfortable. And remember, this is only three minutes. So just relax. For these three minutes, you don’t have to do anything. Don’t worry about what’s coming next. Just see if you can tune in here in in follow along with this video for these three minutes. Okay.
Unknown Speaker 32:41
The famous Four Seven a breath relaxing breath that I teach to all patients and doctors and students and friends. Another yoga breathing technique. In this you try to keep your tongue in the yogic position touching the tip of the tongue to the reach of tissue just behind your upper front teeth. Like that and try to keep it there the whole time. You breathe in quietly through your nose to a count of four. And you hold your breath for a count of seven and then blow air out forcefully through your mouth helps a few purse your lips out, and you make a whoosh sound when you do that. So the exercise begins by letting all the air out through your mouth. Then you close your mouth breathe in silently to a count of four, hold your breath for a count of seven out through your mouth audibly to a count of eight and you will repeat this for four breaths cycles looks like this.
Unknown Speaker 34:22
That’s it, you must do this at least twice a day. You can do it more frequently if you want. But never more than four breaths cycles at one time, at least for the first month after a month. If you’re comfortable with it, you can increase the eight breath cycles. And that’s the absolute maximum. It’s desirable to slow the whole exercise down as you practice it. What limits you is how long you can comfortably hold your breath. But as you practice that you’ll get better and better at it. And after doing this for for six weeks, you can begin trying to use it for things. If somebody says something that pushes your buttons If you do this exercise before you react, it’s a great way to deal with cravings. That’s a great way to help you fall asleep. If you get up in the middle of the night for any reason get back in bed, you do the exercise, you’ll fall asleep easily. After two months, three months of regular practice, there are very significant changes that happen in physiology, this lowers heart rate, it lowers blood pressure, improves digestion, it is a very powerful anti anxiety measure, in fact, much more powerful than the anti anxiety drugs that are commonly prescribed, takes no time and needs no equipment, very time and cost effective. Everything to recommend that. So I urge you to be in practicing this.
Cathy Cooke 35:51
Okay, how did that feel for everybody? I know I’m super relaxed and didn’t really want to come back, right. So I love it. So I mean, hopefully you can see how simple and effective this technique is. And I hope you feel inspired to start doing it every day. I’ve been doing it for about 20 years. And I find it to be one of the most valuable tools I have for supporting my nervous system. Now I am also a big fan. Can we go back to the PowerPoint are awesome things. I’m also a huge fan of the Wim Hof. And so you can see his name up in the right hand corner. If you want to Google that. I actually I think for me, this method, the Wim Hof Method is a little bit more powerful. It does take a little bit more time 10 to 15 minutes, maybe depending on how you do it. But boy, I tell you, I it’s like, it’s like the equivalent of doing an hour of meditation for me in 10 minutes. It’s amazing. So it’s really transformational. And I highly recommend for anyone that’s interested that you look into that. Okay, so we are at, I think my time is about up. So it’s good timing, because those are my three big tips for you, to help you travel healthier and feel better, especially while flying. And so these are the absolute minimum steps that I take when I fly. Really, you know, I do a lot more. And I lay them all out for you inside the course. But I could talk about it all day, because I’m just so proud of it. But I know that our wants to make some announcements and I want to save a lot of time. For your specific questions. I see we’ve got some coming in. So our I’m gonna go ahead and hand it back over to you.
R Blank 37:51
Thank you very much, Kathy. And As Kathy said, By the way, great presentation. As always, Kathy, thank you so much for for contributing your knowledge and expertise to the SI ve community. And as Kathy already ruined the surprise, everyone knows we have a very special announcement here tonight, and that is that SRP is proud to have teamed up with Kathy, to bring the fly healthier course, with over five and a half hours of videos more than 20 pdf guides and handouts, eight bonus expert interviews over a dozen blood sugar balancing and gut healing recipes. This program has everything you need to know how to reset your body back into a state of health so that you can you can fly healthier. The value of this course taken together right is well over $2,500 When you value each of the components that are included. We’ve seen similar prices, courses priced at $5,000 and higher without all of this great information. But Kathy and I knew that if we priced it at what it’s worth, not enough people would have access to the information. So $2,500 It’s just it’s a lot of money, especially right now with the way everything costs so much like gas and produce. So, so we talked about making it available for just $500 which is more than fair for all of the value in the course. But again, we just felt like that was that was too much in terms of making this available to as many people as possible. So we decided to make this intensive workshop available for just 299. And again, remember for this you get seven modules over three and a half hours of video lessons 30 handouts and articles. All of this not from just some random person on the internet but from a certified building biologist, certified EMF expert and a holistic nutritionist. You get to experience this from the comfort of your own home on your own schedule, and it includes one full year of access and the special deal that we have for everyone in the webinar tonight. Is me Making this course available for just $99. So that is normally priced at a great deal for 299. But tonight, for those of you who are in attendance live, not for anyone watching the replay. But for those who are here live, you can enjoy a full year of access to this course for just $99. And remember, this includes a 30 day money back guarantee. So if you’re not completely satisfied with the amazing information you’re getting, just contact us for a complete refund. There’s nothing to return, and no hassle. So again, this is where I know everyone wants to get into q&a. So I keep the pitch real short. So we’ll get to q&a here in a second. But just one final reminder, this is just tonight only it’s until midnight tonight Pacific time, you can get Cathy’s fly healthier course for just $99. The coupon code is fly well. And it’s you’ll see it here on your screen, along with the shortcut shield your body.com/fly healthy. Or if you go to our website, it’s in the courses menu. So now we will get into some Q and A. And for those who don’t know, we do, there’s a q&a pod. So if you have questions, or if you’ve had questions, and you’ve put them into the chat pod, please put them into the q&a pod. And I am going to apologize here one second, I have to escape. And I have to because I can’t I can’t monitor the q&a pod while having keynote in full screen. So I just I just need one second here, too.
There we go. Okay, so now I can get into the q&a. So and we had some questions submitted in advance. And so while to give you guys a couple another minute or so, to put your questions into the q&a pod, I’m going to jump to one or two of the ones from that were submitted in advance with a Google form. So Kathy, here’s one that I thought was was interesting. What where’s the safest or healthiest place to sit in a plane when it comes to EMF?
Cathy Cooke 42:17
Yeah, that’s a good question. It’s a little challenging to answer because every plane is different. Um, so typically, we like to say not to sit near the engines. And sometimes the engines are in the back sometimes or on the wings. So if you actually had to book a flight yesterday, as a matter of fact, for a building biology seminar coming up soon, and so when I was choosing my seats, I could see two of the, you know, the it was there and return, two of the planes had the engines on the wings, and two of them had him in the back. So you got to kind of look at that, and you’re gonna have a less of a magnetic field, if you can try to get away from the engines. Um, some people also think that sitting in the aisle is better than this than this see the window seat because of cosmic radiation. However, in my testing of many flights, the magnetic field for some reason has tended to be higher towards the aisle. Now, again, it that’s only a few flights, and every situation is going to be different. The other factor that some people like to think about is where’s the Wi Fi router? And you don’t always know. So you know, you can’t you can’t call the airline and say, Hey, on this flight that I’m taking on this day, where’s your Wi Fi router, we’re gonna be there. If I may, sometimes you can ask when you get on, but if you’ve got an assigned seat that I that might work or not, maybe you can change seats if it’s not full. So it’s, it’s a very challenging question, because we’ve got electric fields, we’ve got dirty electricity, we’ve got magnetic fields, we’ve got radiofrequency and so there isn’t one best place on the plane to avoid all of them. So you know, I my best tips. I know that if if we’re away from the engine, that’s better. And otherwise, you know, we just kind of gotta do our best on that, which is why I like all of the other recommendations here.
R Blank 44:41
Thank you, Kathy. Another question submitted beforehand, was about the, the the, I don’t know what they call them now. But the detector that you have to walk through at security checkpoint, how much radiation and EMF are we getting and is there any way around it and I’ll Before you answer because I don’t know the answer to that question, well, I know that there is a way around it. And that is to request a pat down. And I remember once when I requested a pat down the woman, the TSA agent was like, oh, no, it just bounces off of your skin. Like that is that is not how this works. But I do know, my understanding is it’s very low powered, but it’s still a millimeter wave is that?
Cathy Cooke 45:26
Yeah. I mean, if that was true, though, how would it how would it perform its function? Right, because it’s gotta go. I mean, that makes zero sense. Yeah, I’ve had that. So I get, I don’t think I’ve ever gone through one. Which is interesting, because they started in around what, like 2008, or nine. And I wasn’t fully aware of the whole EMF thing. I just thought no, like, I’m not going through that thing. I don’t, I’m not even sure why I thought that at the time, but I’ve always asked for a pat down, I’ve never had a problem with it. You know, in some circumstances, depending on the airport, if I mean, it can take a little extra time. So I do allow myself an extra 20 minutes to get to the airport, it’s, it usually doesn’t take that extra time at all. But just to be safe. I have been in some super busy airports, like maybe DC airports or other where it takes an extra long time, because they’re so understaffed, and the security lines are huge. So you just want to make sure you do give yourself a little time. But yeah, I have always done it. I’ve never had a problem. So I put all my stuff on the belt, my luggage on the belt that goes through those scared, I say I want to pat down or I want to opt out, and then you get a patent on it is millimeter waves. So, which is interesting, because the TSA also likes to tell me Oh, it’s no different than your cell phone. And doesn’t use millimeter waves. Why? You know, but that’s what they’re taught. So anyway, it is, you know, I don’t know that we know, for sure the full impact of the technology. But as I’m thinking in terms of power density, but it is millimeter waves, and I mean, what if you have an option if you can opt out? Why wouldn’t you?
R Blank 47:29
Yep. Great. Thank you. Okay, so I don’t understand this question. But hopefully you do, I guess it’s a, it’s a question about specific types of supplements. So see void test asks, marine based magnesium supplements, do you know what that refers to? So
Cathy Cooke 47:48
he’s just asking about different types of supplements, and I’m assuming she’s asking our marine based, okay, versus other types. Um, you know, everybody’s different. And we got to each find the type of magnesium that works best for us. Marine base can be okay, you know, the problem with marine based anything, however, is that our oceans, even sea salt, our oceans are filled with microplastics and other toxins. So little bit cautious about that. I do still use sea salt, but you know, sparingly. So I kind of prefer the elemental. You know, magnesium glycinate, Malley, three Na, there’s all different kinds of forms, and just depends on what which one is best for you, which, you know, are you do you have a propensity for anxiety? Or is it musculoskeletal? Or is it cognitive, you know, then I’m going to tailor that to meet the best match for you. I do go into that in the course. So but you know, everybody’s different. So the type of magnesium is going to be dependent on the person, but you know, a citrate glycinate. I mean, they’re all good. We can all benefit from each of them. It’s just that fine tuning. So, you know, if you’re doing the marine Museum and you like it, great. I mean, I’m not overly concerned about it, just throwing it out there that, you know, I, I kind of would prefer the elemental versus marine because of the microplastic issue, unfortunately.
R Blank 49:37
Thank you. We have a quite I’m going to jump a little here out of order. Charles asked, What does one year of access mean? I don’t own the course once I purchase it. That’s correct. It’s on a learning platform and you’re access it through our website at shield your body.com. And so the purchase is for one year of access to all of the content of the course obviously The the PDFs and the downloads you can keep for as long as you’d like. It’s really the the video, the video component of of the course, that you have one year of access to. Thank you
Cathy Cooke 50:11
are that is because we try to update that as often as possible and continue to improve that content. So
R Blank 50:21
okay, also, again, out of order, we will get to as many of these as possible, but out of order here, anonymous asks considerations for pregnant women babies and developing children in days leading up to flight and while I’m playing. Yeah, what to do, given they’re more susceptible blood brain barriers.
Cathy Cooke 50:41
Mm hmm. Yeah. I’m so pregnant women, you know, I do like the belly bands. You know, they make the belly bands that have children. And you could you could use the blanket like the baby blanket that shield your body has that’s great for pregnant bellies. I mean, this is a little bit tricky, because, you know, supplementation is good. But of course, most supplements we can’t say are safe during pregnancy, because we can’t ethically test them. However, magnesium is no problem. Rosemary is a food. All right. So those are great. So doing those kinds of supplements, I think is a great idea. For babies and children. Yeah. And for days leading up to the flight. It’s tough for me to see babies on planes to be honest with you. Because it it’s a it’s challenging for them. And I often see them entertained by phones and tablets. That’s That’s what bothers me. I just I you know, I It’s hard to see. But I am not there to you know, try it anybody in their behaviors. So it is what it is. But again, same thing with the antioxidants. And then for babies, the baby blanket is fantastic. And the beanie, the little baby hat. I think those are excellent. I mean, if I was traveling with a baby, I would 100% invest in those, I think it’s it’s a very good investment. And for children. So they’re you know, as the child gets older, there are more supplements that can be helpful. You know, chewables, chewable magnesium. Some other supplements like Asda, Xanthan, you know, the the foods, of course, the antioxidant rich foods, and then the shielding fabrics. So it’s another thing you know, and I talked about this, at length in the course, is blood sugar balancing. So if you’re talking about, you know, a couple of days of leading up to the flight, you know, remembering to keep yourself in as less of a stressful state as possible. And I realize that that is very challenging, especially when you’ve got kids. But the more prep you can do, you know, packing for days ahead of time having all of your food and supplements ready, etc. So that you have less stress, the day of the flight is going to make everything much smoother, because your nervous system again is not going to be on heightened alert. And balancing your blood sugar goes right in hand with that, so that we don’t have this adrenaline and cortisol response, which makes everything worse. So you know, I’ve got a whole handout about balancing blood sugar, and I’m sure many of you probably know how to do that. Very important to keep just keeping the body in as low of a stress response as possible. So was there a second part to that question?
R Blank 54:00
No, that was good. Thank you. Okay. Sandra asks, at what elevation does cosmic radiation become an issue? What about living at higher elevations? Does elevation correspond with EMFs. And I can start that so cosmic radiation is an issue everywhere. The the factor is the reason altitude becomes an issue is because the, the lower the lower elevation you are at, the more of the Earth’s atmosphere exists to insulate effectively insulate you from those cosmic forces. So you’re exposed to some cosmic radiation at sea level, and you’re exposed to more on a tall mountain, and you’re exposed to it even more when you’re in a plane flying at 30 or 40,000 feet. And so that is how elevation corresponds with EMFs. Kathy, are there are there other details you’d like to add to that? Answer?
Cathy Cooke 54:58
No, I think that’s Yeah, that’s pretty much right spot on.
R Blank 55:03
Cool. Yeah. And so the, the amount that you’re exposed to at, you know, sea level for sure and even higher. That’s the amount that evolution has led us to cope with and thrive with. Right. So that’s why cosmic radiation even though it reaches us at the Earth’s surface, that’s why it’s not talked about as an EMF risk, because that’s, that’s a force that we’ve all I mean, it’s literally sunlight is one of these forces. And so and it’s just the higher up you get, you know, the more of this you’re exposed to. And again, when you’re up at a plane that at the altitude of a plane, that is not a level that we evolved to, to cope with. Our is asking, oh, answering questions. I got it. Yes. Yes. If you have questions, please post them into the q&a pod. That’s where that’s what I’m working off of here. Kelly asks, What elearning platform do you use, we’re using one that’s built into our store. So you would access it through once you enroll you access through our website. And if you go to our website, under the courses menu, you’ll see there’s a link to just access your courses. Thank you. Okay, let me jump back into order here. Oh, another question from Sondra. How do you make your rosemary tea from fresh or dried herbs?
Cathy Cooke 56:30
Um, I typically buy dried I’m big fan of the Traditional Medicinals brand of tea. I think they they’re just very high quality. So I typically do it that way. But you could do it however you want. And you can experiment. You know, that’s the great thing about herbs is, I mean, sky’s the limit. I also like to buy bulk herbs from Mountain rose online, which are fantastic. So you know, you could get dried rosemary from them and just steep it. I like to also combine my rosemary with nettle tea, and nettle. While I don’t make any mention of that in the course which maybe now I’m thinking about it maybe I probably should have it’s one of my favorite herbs of all time. So nettle tea can really help with to lower a histamine response. And EMF exposure can increase our histamine response. So So combining nettle with rosemary tea and what I do is I put it like in a mason jar, a taller mason jar, and put about oh, maybe eight of the jar, you know, which is what I don’t know, half a cup of herbs. And then pour boiling water on it, let it sit overnight and then drink that during the day. Amazing. It’s a beautiful thing really is great for actually bone health because nettle tea is really rich in minerals. It’s very helpful for prostate health, and it helps to lower histamine response. So that’s that is a pro tip for you guys today. It’s one of my favorite things.
R Blank 58:16
Thank you mana or I apologize if I’m saying that wrong. asks how do you use rosemary essential oil? Is that topical?
Cathy Cooke 58:28
Um, I have not used it topically I have used it in a diffuser. Okay,
R Blank 58:34
so it’s in a diffuser. Thank you. Rhonda asks, Should Rosemary only be taken in supplemental form or is the herb more effective for cooking
Cathy Cooke 58:46
I think you get a higher protective dose in a supplement that is more concentrated because when you’re cooking with it, you’re only using a really small amount. I mean it’s it’s still it’s still helpful and I still recommend it. But if I’m getting on a plane, I’m going to be taken I take a tincture and that’s that’s I take the tincture with me and I’m doing it a couple times during the during the flight well depending on how long the flight is I do it maybe three or four times a day.
R Blank 59:16
Okay, thank you. And that also answers Oh, well Beth asked a similar question but then she asked specifically can Rosemary tincture be taken aboard a plane? I believe right because you can take up to those little you can take I forget the actual
Cathy Cooke 59:35
three ounces I think let’s see you know what guys are probably got one right here. Let me show you should have had that. Oh look, I have my shoes. I just happen to have that. So I’ve got a note. Oh, look at this. I switched bags. This was not planned. By the way I switched bags to my new
R Blank 59:57
pouch to works
Cathy Cooke 1:00:00
and I’ve got my rosemary tincture in here. So this is the one that I use. It’s the herb farm tincture. I’ve never had a problem bringing it on a plane. They’ve never In fact, I mean, I just have this in my bag literally when I’m flying, they’ve never looked in my bag. They’ve never given me any. Now I’ve never had a problem.
R Blank 1:00:26
So yeah, I think that size is safe. So thank you. Let’s see, oh, this is an interesting, I don’t know what the answer is going to be. But the question sounds interesting, empty asks, Are there better or worse times of the day to fly from the perspective of your health.
Cathy Cooke 1:00:43
So um, there is a thought that if you fly at night, that you’re going to avoid some more of that cosmic radiation, EMF sun exposure, you know, happening. But the problem with that is I’m, I mean, then your circadian rhythm is all jacked up. Right. So, um, I mean, I know that if you get the first flight of the day, you’re much less likely to have delays. In missed connections, the first flight of the day is usually on time. And I think that’s important because, um, you know, one of the things that I wanted to mention in this webinar didn’t think we’d have enough time is that in the airport itself, you get a big dose of radar, much less than you get, you’re not really getting it in the airplane, at least that I’ve been able to measure. So if you’re sitting in the airport, you’re getting you it’s potential that you’re getting a huge spike of radar every five seconds or so, I have found for me, personally, that that bothers me more than being in the plane. So I don’t want to sit in the airport all day long. So sometimes those early morning flights can be better, so that you’re not delayed and getting an excess exposure by sitting in the airplane and potentially missing a connection, etc. Um, but you know, if you’re very sensitive, flying at night may be better. For me, I don’t like that because of the circadian rhythm challenges. The circadian rhythm is imperative for, you know, our nervous system, our overall health and how we feel. So I guess it depends on, you know, which is more important for you.
R Blank 1:02:31
Thank you. That was an interesting answer. I appreciate that. Before it jumped to the next question. I see Michael, put into the chat pod. Could you clarify what you mean by radar in the context that you gave? Because you mentioned radar in your answer?
Cathy Cooke 1:02:46
Oh, yeah. Airport radar. So sorry, from the from the airport tower communication to the planes, the airport radar that they’re using.
R Blank 1:02:56
Okay. Thank you. Joanne asks, and it’s something I think you’ve covered early on in your presentation, so she may have missed it. And there’s another question that was submitted in advance that I think you can maybe combine both. So Joanne asks, What are your thoughts on shunga? To reduce EMF, I have a small round disc in my phone, but not sure if it works. And then someone asked in advance on the Google Form. Do you think taking travel size some of Vedic device would be helpful.
Cathy Cooke 1:03:27
Okay, so shunga? I mean, if you want it, I bring it great. You know, I’ve I’ve got some of that are hidden in pockets here. And there. I think, you know, again, I don’t know, if it works, there is some pretty compelling research that shows that it could be protective. You know, I’m encouraged by it. I just, I just, I just am not confident enough with the research that I have to say yes or no. Again, lack of research doesn’t mean that there’s not a correlation. So I don’t think there’s any harm right? So if you want to bring it and you feel better with it, fine. I think that’s that’s fine. But yeah, I’m not sure how much it’s helping. And then let’s see what was the second summit Vedic. So Vedic? Yeah. Um, okay. So I believe with the handheld device of the some of Vedic you have, it has to be charged like every eight hours or so are something with the other unit. If I am correct, I don’t know. I don’t have one. It is actually the only protective advice device that if somebody is absolutely desperate and has done all the things I might suggest they try to sum about it. And I say that only because I have multiple clients that have really benefited from it. Again, I typically don’t because of all of the reasons that I said I still can’t science scientifically verify it. And I don’t, you know, my biggest fear here is that people’s going to get a protective device and I see this all the time. And they’re like, Oh, I feel better, and then they start using all of their devices as much as they want. That is not going to work out for you. All right, just because you might feel a little better with this thing on your phone doesn’t mean you can use your phone 24/7. So I’m nervous about that, too. But, yeah, okay, so using this small Soma Vedic device, I mean, if it holds its charge long enough, because I think it’s like eight hours before it has to be charged with the bigger one. I mean, again, I don’t see any problem with trying. I know it’s a tiny little things. So worth a try.
R Blank 1:05:39
Thank you. Anonymous ass. So they let the tinctures through. But any EMF protective clothing devices or anything we pack can raise red flags when it goes through the conveyor belt scan what to do in these cases, I’ll say I mean, it might not surprise people to note that I travel with a fair amount of EMF protection devices. The only one that’s ever caused any kind of issue for me is sometimes the laptop pad because that’s always in my carry on. And sometimes that’ll that’ll warrant, they’ll pull it aside and look through the bag and they’ll even see the pad and have no idea what set off the because the issue is the scanner can’t see through it. So but that’s the closest thing I’ve had to any kind of like they just look at it. And they they waved me through none of my other like, I’ll wear I’ll wear the best swipey boxers. Nothing ever really sets off any issue. Kathy, have you ever had issues with EMF shielding going through airport security?
Cathy Cooke 1:06:42
I have not. Um, you know, I’m usually getting a pat down. So I usually have I’m wearing the clothes, but I’ve had stuff in my bags. Occasionally, they will go through my bags while I’m doing the pat down. But I’ve never, I’ve never taken anything or it’s never been a problem. Yeah.
R Blank 1:07:04
Thank you. And I forgot to hit answer live. So that’s okay. So Michael asks, I’ll try to summarize this and basically because he because I earlier, I brought up the the issue of that new plane I was on that didn’t have the the in seat display. So he’s wondering if the smaller planes may result in less exposure, or whether wide bodied airliners with higher ceilings and more space? Or maybe have lower net exposure. But basically, the question is, you know, are you aware of what the differences are? Like? You said it was hard to answer the question earlier about where in the plane is best. Are there? Do you have information about what kind of plane might be better than others? A smaller one bigger one older one newer one?
Cathy Cooke 1:07:54
Yeah, that’s a good question. And I don’t know. I mean, I know that smaller planes. I will. I mean, this is kind of irrelevant. But like, you know, I used to live in Alaska and got on the little to cedars, often. Boy, those are, you know, talk about magnetic fields like, oof, you know? Yeah, because you’re right next to I mean, you are right next to the engine,
R Blank 1:08:15
right. But no one play Wi Fi imagine. Yeah,
Cathy Cooke 1:08:18
no, no. Sometimes no bathrooms. So be careful about that. I’m always no bathrooms. But um, you know, I can’t say for sure, Michael, but I’m, I’m feeling like I, you know, you mentioned the wider planes with more space. If I had to guess I would expect that those would be better. But I really don’t know. Some of this is, you know, we need more data. We need more of us to be taking measurements. But again, that’s really hard. Because if I’m in the exact same plane, but my neighbor next to me has eight devices on on one plane, and the next time they don’t, I’m not gonna get good results. I you know, I might, my data is not valid. So, it’s really difficult to say, I think that I feel better in the bigger planes than the smaller ones. And I’m assuming that’s just because of this issue, you know, the closer you are to all the stuff, the much higher your exposure is going to be.
R Blank 1:09:26
Thank you. Okay, so we have one final question here. And this is last call. So if you have questions, put them into the q&a pod, but at this moment, we have one final question from Beth. So, magnesium, L, the Thoreau, Nate is the only form of magnesium that passes the blood brain barrier. So might that provide additional protection for the brain while flying?
Cathy Cooke 1:09:51
Yeah, uh huh. Yeah. Three and eight, magnesium three and eight. Yeah, that’s true. It’s it is magnesium three and eight is the best magnesium for cognitive issues, say you’re having whatever you know, you want to improve memory or anxiety or whatever nervous system cognitive brain issues that you might have magnesium three and eight is the best. And it is the only one that crosses the blood brain barrier. So I would agree best that it could be one of the better options in this case, it is more expensive than like a glycinate or ballet or three, Nate. But if cognitive issues are your thing, definitely go for the three and eight. You know, the glycinate is great for like, again, anxiety and you know, it’s it’s nice and calming malaise, it’s great for that musculoskeletal stuff. So, you know, it’s and you can get different formulas that have all three or combination. But I do agree with you, you know, three days worth trying, because it can be great.
R Blank 1:10:56
Thank you, we have another question come through. From anonymous can the EMF hoodies or EMF blocking clothes, if not fully covering every inch of our body result in whatever small amount of EMF entering through openings and bouncing and multiplying?
Cathy Cooke 1:11:13
Yeah, um, there is in the in our professional community there are we do have conversations about that. There is a risk of that. And it honestly kind of seems to be person dependent on whether or not someone is bothered by that or not. Um, for that reason, I mean, I have a hoodie, that I don’t typically use the hood on it for that reason. If I do, I’m gonna like put the you know, the shield your body net gear around it or something. So it kind of can close up a little bit. Or, or use like a hat. So, you know, that’s why I like the T shirts, or, you know, I mean, the hoodie that I have, if I don’t put the hood up, it’s just a full enclosure. So that may be one reason why some people don’t feel great while you when they’re using them. But generally, it’s just, that’s just a hoodie issue, particularly because it can gap. The other clothes, that’s not really an issue.
R Blank 1:12:25
Thank you. And their guests, the same person asks, and can can the EMF protective clothing, bounce waves bouncing waves off of you subject the person seated next to us getting more exposure? Ethically, I wonder about this sometimes? No, that’s
Cathy Cooke 1:12:45
that’s a good question. It would not that that would not be indicated by our measurements, I can imagine that. There could be a very small risk of that. But in all the measurements that I have done I’m just thinking about this, I was actually doing an assessment yesterday in a home where we could see a cell tower in the distance. And I was measuring and I can hear the cell antenna on my meter. And when I opened the door, the measurement went down. And it stumped me for a long time. I was I was like, you know, I’ve never seen this before what’s going on? And of course, it dawned on me, after a few minutes, oh, there’s another antenna coming from the other side, right? And it was bouncing off of the double pane low E glass. So when I opened the window, it was letting it out. But when I closed the window, it was increasing. So I have not however experienced that with clothing. And I imagine it’s because the clothing is mesh. And so it’s it’s going to be more potentially absorptive rather than directive like a when redirecting like a window would be. It is a good question. And I think it would be a valid point to continue to measure that to make sure you know if you’ve got a meter I would just measure it to make sure that that’s not happening. But so far, I haven’t seen it be enough of an issue that I would be concerned about my neighbor but but I like your line of thinking it’s good point.
R Blank 1:14:37
Another question came in what other areas and airports would have the most and least radiation density.

So um, there’s there’s no way of knowing, I mean, we don’t know where all of the fancy equipment is, you know, we’re dealing again, not only is it radar and and wireless devices and Wi Fi in the airport and probably security, technology and you know communication technology, etc, that’s in the airport. But it’s also electric fields and magnetic fields and dirty electricity. We literally have no way of knowing. That’s why I like to travel with the meter. So I can turn it on in go sit in the place that slowly Yeah,
R Blank 1:15:23
what meter Do you like track because obviously, in your carry on, you’re not going to bring your whole kit, what meter Do you like traveling with?
Cathy Cooke 1:15:29
My safe and sound pro 100%. Awesome on that, I’ve got that on my website, if anybody wants to look at the meters that I like, safe and sound Pro two, for sure. And I bring my NFA 1000 with me, which is a $2,000 meter. So I know that people aren’t, you know, going to do that. But that’s the magnetic and electric fields that I use, you can use a trifield meter for that, or a cornet. And then just a little small, handheld am radio. I actually released a YouTube video this week on how to use an am radio to detect dirty electricity, you know, fits in the palm of your hand. And it’s amazing to identify where you’re getting dirty electricity from, you know, cost 25 bucks. So I would you know, for anybody that wants to see that, go to my YouTube channel and watch that video. And those are the three that I fly with. So, yeah, you could also just do like a trifield, or cornet or something like that.
R Blank 1:16:36
Cool. Thank you. Okay, Michael asked one more question. Should we wear EMF protecting shoes or a mat to place feet? I’ve never, I actually haven’t seen EMF protection. I’ve seen socks but not shoes.
Cathy Cooke 1:16:53
I have not either. Um,
R Blank 1:16:57
I mean, it’s all about how much of your body you want to cover, right? You’re not, because if you were gonna get full coverage from a protective device, it would have to look something like a hazmat suit. And that is not going to be practical. So it’s about the areas of your body that are most important to you. And when you you have exposure in those areas, you feel so it’s about protecting the organs that are most important to you and protecting your your sense of health and well being. And so if if your feet, if exposure to your feet are triggering symptoms, then I would say for sure. Look into into protecting them. I don’t know what a matt would do in that instance, but that, you know, socks could could help.
Cathy Cooke 1:17:41
You got a grounding mat or something like that. That’s a big no.
R Blank 1:17:46
Yeah. Well, also, I mean, you would have nothing to grounded into on a plane.
Cathy Cooke 1:17:49
Oh, well, I mean, maybe not. They do have a grounding system in the plane to disperse. Feel.
R Blank 1:18:00
There’s no There’s no like outlet it either. Yeah, there is on a three a three prong outlet at the seat. Well, I
Cathy Cooke 1:18:07
don’t know. I haven’t paid attention. If if it’s three pronged.
R Blank 1:18:10
Yeah, I see USB ports. But that’s I don’t don’t use a grounding mat on the plane. Let’s see. Can you anonymous asked, can you take the EMF meter in your carry on? The answer is yes, I do. We I mean, at least I’ve never had an issue. And it shouldn’t be an issue you can bring on all these different kinds of devices. So yeah, that is fine. Great.
