Dr. Lyn Patrick, ND: Hi, this is Dr. Lyn Patrick. I'm here with Dr. Stephanie McCarter Board certified in internal medicine and one of the uh, physicians at the Environmental Health Center, Dallas. And she's going to be one of our speakers at the EMF conference 2019. I'm very excited. Um, Stephanie, why don't you give us just a little background in terms of your learning how to treat EMF related illness and what you actually do at EHC Dallas and what you're going to talk about at the conference.

Dr. Stephanie McCarter, MD: Right. So I was a patient once with Dr. Rea very, very many years ago and I had EMF sensitivity and I didn't know what it was at the time, so I have had a lot of experience with the syndrome and Dr. Rea helped me to get, well, I built a eco friendly low EMF house and it was a very big learning experience as well because I'm going to present some of that when I go to the conference. Um, and I did learn a lot about, you know, patients can do supplements, they can do all these different things, functional medicine, but we have a subset of patients and we're getting a growing number of this, um, at EHCD who can't do that. They can't take supplements. They, their nervous system is so imbalanced. And Dr. Rea was talking about that and the fact that, you know, we're going to have more of a problem with this because unfortunately one of the biggest treatments about electro sensitivity and also chemical sensitivities is avoidance and this 21st century environment, we have this growing influence now of wireless and it keeps growing. So it’s more and more difficult for patients. So one of the big tools that we have in the environmental health center is the antigen therapy, provocation, neutralization. Because what happens is when patients can't even eat a food or they can't take a nutrient or supplement, it's going to be very difficult to detoxify chemicals and molds and you know, all the different heavy metals. And the other thing, it's a big mistake that paid that doctors don't understand is that a lot of times patients are too fragile to do this very quickly. So we get the really, really sensitive people. What we're seeing now with the five g is we are seeing more and more young people who are getting, you are, you know, basically what is the world's, most of the kids that are being, you know, educated in as techno, you know, everything is technology. So they're on computers 24/7 you're at school, don't on a computer, 24/7. And we're learning, you know, the schools are some of the most toxic environments, not just from an electrical standpoint but chemically. So we're going to get more and more of these patients and doctors need to be educated on how severe it is. How do they detox him? What rate do we do that? And one of the big tools that provocation neutralization is to help desensitize to foods and nutrients. Because those are the very things that we need to help, you know, treat the patient. And unfortunately a lot of times that can't be done. So especially with this you know, environment that we're in today and and having all the places that are full of Wifi it’s very important to educate the patients on how to lower that in their home. And then, you know, that's one of the things that Dr. Rea emphasizes to get that total load down and then we can start eventually building them back up.

Lyn: I remember that Bill, Bill Rea talked about his ability to actually expose patients to very, very small amounts because he has the room.

Stephanie: Right, he has an EMF shielded room. Sure. And we do, you know, very low frequencies, but we do do 60 hertz, which is electrical and we have something equivalent to radio waves. We do not have a smart meter, 2.5 gigahertz. But we have found with this double blind, we do a double blind study with cognitive tests and, and vitals in this room has nothing in it. It's completely shielded five times lower levels of pollutants. We find that and environmentally controlled unit helps patients just need to detect it. There's electrical sensitivity. It usually, I mean every time we do that test, it's consistent.

Lyn: So you can actually use that as a diagnostic for electrical sensitive test.

Stephanie: Yeah.

Lyn: And then are you going to be speaking to us, um, at EMF, uh, Conference 2019 about actual protocols for assessing and treating patients with EMF induced illness? And so being at EHCD and treating patients with EMF illness, and I know that Dr. Rea said, you know, the more Wifi, uh, availability, we have a specialty I can imagine for airline personnel who were in planes and big faraday cages.

Stephanie: Exactly.

Lyn: None of Wifi in that. Um, the more we're going to see, um, larger populations, larger numbers of people becoming EMF sensitive. And with the smart meter rollout and the five g rollout, I'm assuming that you're seeing that too.

Stephanie: We saw, you know, 10 years ago was we saw all these patients who are having trouble with insomnia, all these different symptoms and it was the smart meters. And then we've noticed now with the Mike, you said the airline pilots and stewardesses, people who fly stewards, all these airline attendants, everybody's getting sicker. And it's a not a good environment to be in, in the first place. But that's the first thing doctor he and I spoke about is that, you know what, you're getting all those Wifi on the planes and you can't ground that energy. You're in a metal box, like you said, just like cars and elevators and, and so it's affecting the ability of the Mitochondria, ATP, all of that is being affected. So we are seeing that. And when we questioned the airline employees, they do say, you know what, I do notice that I did start because we have employees had been doing fine for years and they do say, you know, I've noticed that it started when the, why now that you mentioned it, the Wifi was introduced in the planes. And, um, you know, that's when we started having more problems. So it's, and you know, that's the thing we're learning, um, Lyn, is that we have microbiome is being affected and that's, you know, we're learning now. This is a tip of the iceberg of what, you know, what's going on is that there's all these organisms in the body that, you know, that's their first thing with electromagnetics is they protect. So they become, they release more toxins. So I, we're seeing a lot of that, you know, the microbiome is effected and then, uh, patients who are really sensitive, typically have very high. He's, they have a lot of dysbiosis and they can't just pray about it. Our patients just can't even do that. So, you know, you have to start really remedial steps to get them better.

Lyn: And so, um, I'm very excited that you're coming and I can learn from, from, uh, what's, I can learn from a doctor who's had a very unique opportunity of working in an environment that, you know, we don't get to work in and learning from someone who's probably one of the global experts in EMF. And thank you so much for all of your referrals, for the bowel biologists that were also bringing to EMF conference so that we can give doctors, um, access to them to help patients learn about creating a safer space to limit. Exactly. You said you can't send somebody back into the same environment that they got sick in and expect them to stay well. Right.

Stephanie: Right. It's exactly right.

Lyn: And so I appreciate that. I want to thank you for that. So I'm, I'm looking forward to learning from you and all the other wonderful global experts that are coming to EMF conference.

Stephanie: You brainstorm and get solutions. I mean, it talked about is, you know, we have all this technology, we should be able to make it safe.

Lyn: Exactly.

Stephanie: That's the one thing we need to get the public educated and we need to get, you know, there's ways that we can do this in a safe manner.

Lyn: And we, we will, there will be some proposals brought forth at the conference, so we mostly work. Absolutely. Well, thank you so much.
