Description

Most of us are exposed to an abundance of artificial blue light on a daily
basis, via our modern technology (lamps, cellphones, computers, TVs, etc).
Our bodies physiologically respond to light from the blue portion of the
spectrum with a state of wakefulness, via the suppression of melatonin
production. This constant stream of artificial blue light is wreaking havoc
on our circadian rhythms.  

Today’s guest, a physicist, is one of the leading experts on this topic —
Dr. Edward Carome. In this episode, you’ll learn how blue light interacts
with our bodies by suppressing melatonin-production and some surprising,
and not often discussed, effects this can have on us. Dr Carome relays some
excellent strategies on how to minimize blue light exposure, particularly
in the evening hours. Whether you are using these blue-light-producing
modern devices on a daily basis or not, the information in this interview
is extremely important! Enjoy, and please share your thoughts in the ReWild
Yourself! Facebook group! I’d love to hear what strategies you are
utilizing to safeguard your circadian rhythm!
