DefenderShield is a brand of technology which effectively protects us from the harmful effects of electromagnetic fields. I’m sure you’ve heard thousands of reviews proving the importance of avoiding EMF exposure.  To get a better understanding on EMFs and the benefits of DefenderShield, its creator Daniel DeBaun will explain all about it in this episode.

In connection with the subject about electromagnetic fields, I’ve had Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt on the show some episodes back. His primary mission is to reverse autism in children, and one of his top recommendations is to have them stay away from wi-fi signals.

You see, wi-fi signals vibrate at 60 hertz and vibrate the heavy metals in our nervous system. By doing this method of heavy metals detoxification, it helps patients slowly eradicate symptoms of autism.

Protecting His Sons

It was a very personal journey for Daniel DeBaun. Before creating DefenderShield, Daniel DeBaun led the standards development and testing environment for a telecommunications product for probably 25-30 years.  He made sure products were compliant to the standards they had in the system.

When Daniel DeBaun decided to retire early, there was one time six years ago wherein his sons visited him at home. It bothered him that they were in front of their laptops for several hours.  He wife was similarly worried, so Daniel DeBaun researched potential dangers.

“I was stunned that there was a lot of evidence. So, I figured out a way to protect them. Eventually, I made a prototype wherein his sons began using them as well as their friends,” shares Daniel DeBaun. 

He adds, “My conclusion was that there was a problem.  We weren’t going to be victims from the technology in our environment, and I thought of trying to fix it. Plus my wife wanted grandchildren. That’s why she was concerned.”

What is Radio Frequency

According to Daniel DeBaun, any device operating electronically has an emission of radiation that occurs below 300 Hertz. When that electronic device is consuming that power, there’s a by-product that occurs. And the by-product has exceptionally low-frequency admissions. It’s the stuff that comes out of your wall to electronics.

“Anything that generates a current generates an emission. Then there’s the other type. It’s like when you want to connect to something, you have to create a connection from one device to the next,” Daniel DeBaun explains. “So, if you want to connect to a cell phone and call a friend, your cell phone connects to a cell power. That’s a radio frequency connection or an RF signal. That RF is another form of radiation.”

Dangers of RF Signals

Daniel DeBaun says that if you use your laptop and connect to your wi-fi to get internet access, that’s an RF signal that is allowing you to make that communication. It is a frequency. And the information rising within that frequency is how you communicate.

“The RF is around one gigahertz. A wi-fi signal is around 4 or 5 gigahertz. It’s much faster and different,” said Daniel DeBaun. “It takes many years before we know the impact of the pollutants around us. And RF can be considered a pollutant. It is also dangerous because it can impact the cellular levels as well as the systems in your body.”

Erratic Sleep Patterns

Many studies have proven that electromagnetic fields mess up with our sleep patterns. Daniel DeBaun says that exposures from a cellphone put us at risk wherein the membrane of our cells can weaken.

“Recreation of melatonin is interrupted by an RF signal. You can’t sleep well, and you have dry eyes. So, you need to think about the potentials for long-term exposures,” said Daniel DeBaun.

To further illustrate, Daniel DeBaun cites that there is a potential that the egg of a 12-year old girl is carrying a potentially damaged DNA cell.  This is if she has been exposed to RF signals for a prolonged time. As the girl grows up, her egg is used to create her child. And some research has supported the concept that a baby could end up having a damaged DNA cell as well.

Natural Toxicity Program

The Natural Toxicity Program is a division of the US Federal Government. Approximately $25 million was poured into the program two years ago to prove a statistically significant epidemiology study that there was no concern about cell damage from an RF signal.

The program took transmitters from a cellphone and included it in the test environment. Radiating this epidemiology population, they found an increase in certain types of brain and heart cancers. The numbers were statistically and significantly higher than the general population that didn’t have that exposure.

“There were thousands of studies in the last five years that look at the breakdown of cells. And there’s that concern that with all these studies, you can’t conclude it. That’s why there’s a bit of controversy in the space,” said Daniel DeBaun. 

The 5G Network

Daniel DeBaun explains that when we had an analog signal, 2 to 4G could break the cells down because it went to a digital format. And the way it is encoded impacts the cells differently.

“We know the digital signal along with the frequency rate is what is impacting our cells. And it creates all the challenges we have today,” said Daniel DeBaun. 

One gigahertz is a billion signals per second. And the 5G network allows us to connect with anything or anybody because of its high speed. Going from 1 gigahertz to roughly 20 gigahertz, Daniel DeBaun says it’s twenty times more speed per second than one gigahertz.

“It’s one third the speed of an x-ray. The x-ray is powerful enough to take electrons, knock it out of orbit and charge it. That’s the mechanical breakdown of the cell that causes cancer,” reveals Daniel DeBaun.

Daniel DeBaun also says that the much more significant speed of 5G is cause for concern. It’s so fast that you can’t go very far. You can’t go any more than 850 feet.

“So, if you’re within a thousand feet of a cell phone tower, you are three times more likely to have cancer. None of us are smart enough to know what the answer is on 5G. Because none of us had studied it anywhere in the world,” said Daniel DeBaun. 

He adds, “No scientific research occurred in that 23 gigahertz space. We can only predict based on what we know of previous technology.”

Radiation Nation Book

For those who want to know more about EMF radiation, check out Daniel DeBaun’s book called Radiation Nation–Your Complete guide to EMF safety and protection. It details all the truths and health challenges what we get from modern technology.

“It was written out of frustration. When I looked at the research as a scientist, there was a lot of evidence that was pre-directionally not good for us,” Daniel DeBaun said. “We were confused about what the stuff was. And we were trying to bring up our families in a changing environment.” 

Daniel DeBaun says he was frustrated because he didn’t see the simple understanding of what the issue is and the simple understanding of what you can do about it. Hence, this book tries to close those gaps.

“The book was for my mother for her daughter. It was for the people that are making decisions in our lives,” said Daniel DeBaun. “I needed to try to help them understand what the problem was and the things they could do. Simple actions can have a substantial change. It was written for the average person to understand the environment they are living at.” 

 Actionable Steps

And just what can we do to lower our exposure to EMF? Daniel DeBaun says that when you have a cell phone against your head, you want to think about that as the worst exposure you can have on a cellphone.

“If you take that cell phone and take it away one foot from your head, 80% of the potential danger of that signal is gone. By 4 feet, 98% of the danger is gone,” Daniel DeBaun said.

In other words, the power adds up so fast that the distance spells a big difference. It is relatively easy to do. By merely moving something or moving the device away from you by a little bit, there a significant benefit. Duration indeed plays an important part in minimizing harmful exposures and living longer.

“If you have a cell phone with a cell tower connection, wi-fi signal and Bluetooth, those are three transmitters entering into the room. You don’t need all three,” said Daniel DeBaun. “I only have cell power. By turning it off, I reduce two-thirds the exposure in the room simply by turning it off and put the phone on speaker mode instead.”

The same goes for TV unites connected to routers and TV boxes. Daniel DeBaun advises that we don’t have to have the wi-fi signal on. Instead, we reduce those transmitters in the room, and that minimizes the exposure.

DefenderShield Products

Daniel DeBaun sells a wide variety DefenderShield products on his website. He said among the DefenderShield selections, the EMF Radiation-Free Air Tube Stereo Headphones / Earbuds is most recommended. It has a long cord to allow you to use your device 4.5 feet away.

Blood Sugar

Blood sugar levels significantly affect our body. That’s why we have numerous studies explaining why it is vital to maintaining healthy blood sugar levels. To educate us more about blood sugar and how to eat smart, Dr. Marlene Merritt explains all that and more in this episode.

Early Exposure

Dr. Marlene Merritt shares her mother is German. And because she was suspicious about going to doctors more often, it was normal that from a young age, Dr. Marlene Merritt was given things like chamomile tea to drink for certain discomforts like gastritis.

Over time, Dr. Marlene Merritt learned more things such as steamed water with eucalyptus could treat asthma and bronchitis. That’s why she never had too many antibiotics when she was a kid.

College Years

In college, Dr. Marlene Merritt got into racing bikes in New York.  One day, she got sick, and her friend gave her antibiotics. An infection lodged in her heart and damaged one of her heart valves.

Upon consultation with a doctor, Dr. Marlene Merritt was diagnosed with mitral valve prolapse, a heart condition at the age of 20. She tried prescribed drugs, but it didn’t help much.  Eventually, she gave up racing when her health couldn’t keep up.

Discovering Whole Food Nutrition

After getting her graduate degree in Oriental Medicine, Dr. Marlene Merritt happened to see a chiropractor/ naturopath who diagnosed her to be Vitamin E deficient. Taking away the Vitamin E capsules she was making that time; he replaced it with a whole food supplement of vitamin E.

Thinking she had nothing to lose, Dr. Marlene Merritt followed the doctor’s instructions and started feeling a whole lot better. Dr. Marlene Merritt got strong enough to go cycling again and eventually biked across the United States in 26 days.

Her quality of life started getting better and better after that. She still has the valve that doesn’t work, but it doesn’t bother her like it used to.

“I started getting healthier with supplements and whole foods. And I have Chinese Medicine’s ability to work with the body as a whole. It put all the pieces together. That trained me well for functional medicine,” said Dr. Marlene Merritt.

After her health improved, Dr. Marlene Merritt changed the core of her practice to nutrition. She went further by pursuing a Masters’ Degree in Nutrition which took her three years to complete.

Importance Of Supplementation

Ultimately, supplementation was a big help to Dr. Marlene Merritt’s health. To illustrate this, she cites Dr. Bruce Ames’ triage theory.

“Most people now are sub-clinically malnourished. So, what happens is, we never get full of nutrition. We’re never replete,” said Dr. Marlene Merritt.

The triage theory shows that our body developed a rationing response to shortages of micronutrients which are vitamins and minerals during our evolution. When our cells run out of a vitamin or mineral, that scarce micronutrient is given to proteins which are essential for short-term survival.

On the other hand, proteins that are needed for long-term health and protection of DNA, lose out. They become disabled and lead to diseases of aging. The triage theory also explains how RDAs are chosen.

The Truth About Fructose

Like what most experts say, Dr. Marlene Merritt says eating sugar causes deficiency. In particular, she says the sugar component fructose does not metabolize the same as glucose does. And to understand all about blood sugar levels, we must first understand how our body processes sugar.

“Fructose gets metabolized in the same pathways as alcohol. The other place that you get sugar is in the actual white sugar or brown. The sugar molecule sucrose is half glucose, half fructose. Sugar substitute agave is 90% fructose,” Dr. Marlene Merritt said.

She adds, “Fructose turns into fat faster than any other sugar. And a lot of people are for whole grains. That works if you’re not having blood sugar issues. But when somebody has blood sugar issues that involve insulin and overreaction of insulin, then ultimately leads to diabetes, whole grains won’t work for them any longer. So, I often have to work with people about eating lesser carbs even the good ones.”

Diet Sodas

I’m sure most of us have heard or read that consuming too many diet sodas are bad for us or affects our blood sugar levels.  But surprisingly, Dr. Marlene Merritt says diet coke does not give us diabetes. It’s not causing us blood sugar issues at the moment, but it makes us addicted.

Diet sodas and any processed food are engineered to be addictive. To read more about how foods can be addictive, Dr. Marlene Merritt recommends the book, Salt Sugar Fat by Michael Moss.

“I can’t just say something is good or bad. Mostly there has to be some context to it. So, if I can keep an open mind and look at the research, most people don’t know how to find the research or read the research.”

Carbs Intake

Dr. Marlene Merritt says fruits, beans, and oatmeal are best eaten in moderation. Because when somebody has blood sugar issues, it does not matter what kind of carb it is, it’s still problematic. And the reason fruit is included in the list is that although fruits don’t cause insulin reaction, the high fructose will damage the liver which speeds up your chances of getting diabetes.

“Manage your carb intake. Carbs all break down to sugar.  Some will break down faster,” said Dr. Marlene Merritt. “The whole grains break down slower, but it still doesn’t make them not a carb. the main problem is that it causes an insulin reaction.

She adds, “And as you go farther into the spectrum of diabetes, it causes more of an insulin reaction. If you have insulin resistance, you cannot burn fat. Insulin is also the most inflammatory biomolecule there is. Plus, insulin also causes food retention.

Plant-Based Diet

As for plant-based diets, Dr. Marlene Merritt says the term doesn’t mean plants exclusively. Because she says, no culture is entirely vegan. Otherwise, we would have died without supplementation because being vegan is not a natural state.

She further explains that one of the things that nutrition research is always kind of a challenge is because of a lot it observational. And observational doesn’t mean it’s wrong.  Instead, what they are looking at is an observation of whether there are other factors involved.

“So, when somebody is eating a mostly plant-based diet and that culture, in particular, they have a very high community interaction. That’s social isolation. It affects health like smoking and obesity,” said Dr. Marlene Merritt.

Dr. Marlene Merritt also says that with a vegan lifestyle you restrict yourself that much, and you would have died of B12 deficiency. For those who are unaware, the most significant deficiencies are a B12 deficiency, zinc deficiency, iron, vitamin A and many others. Among these, B12 is the most well-known.

“I’m not saying don’t eat plants. But rather, I’m saying vegan doesn’t work. That’s why they say plant proteins are not complete proteins,” shares Dr. Marlene Merritt.

High Protein Diets

But when it comes to high-protein diets, Dr. Marlene Merritt is not a proponent of high-protein diets either. This is because she thinks that we don’t manage meat well in a lot of ways.

She also says animal protein doesn’t cause cancer. However, the situation may be different if you are eating conventional meat that is not well-treated, it’s been fed differently, or butchered differently.

Dr. Marlene Merritt also shares that the muscle meat has the least amount of nutrition to it. So, she advises choosing the organ meats where the nutrition level is much higher.

Cooking Methods

Surprisingly, Dr. Marlene Merritt also busts myths about fried foods. She says in fried food like fried chicken; it’s the actual oil that the food is fried in that’s the problem. For frying, Dr. Marlene Merritt says it’s best to use avocado oil or refined coconut oil.

As for other cooking methods, there are options like wet cooking which is either steaming, braising, or putting in stews and dry cooking which involves grilling or baking. Between the two, Dr. Marlene Merritt says dry cooking is not the best thing for proteins.

When it comes to proper cooking protein like meat, Dr. Marlene Merritt shares that some ways of protecting the beef are adding vinegar or doing a marinade. Furthermore, cooking at a lower temperature is good.

Recommended Foods

Leafy greens at breakfast is an excellent way to start the day, says Dr. Marlene Merritt. Soups are also one of the most healing things for the gut. And Dr. Marlene Merritt even uses a teaspoon of bone broth for babies or small children who have colic or constipation. 

An ideal diet is something that is vegetable heavy with some form of protein. And contrary to chicken breasts, Dr. Marlene Merritt prefers chicken with bones and skin, as well as some meats.

For dessert, Dr. Marlene Merritt loves making a mashup of coconut milk, avocado, banana, a tablespoon of chocolate powder, and vanilla-flavored stevia mashed in a food processor.

Ultimately, for the best diet for you, Dr. Marlene Merritt strongly suggests finding a Functional Medicine Practitioner who can tell you more about your health.

Merritt Wellness Center

Dr. Marlene Merritt’s practice offers a lot of services that not only focus on maintaining blood sugar or finding the right diet for you. The Merritt Wellness Center provides services ranging from functional medicine, nutritional testing, and long-distance consultation. They also offer full-body thermography, genetic testing, Chinese and Japanese fertility acupuncture, detox, stress management, and pediatrics.

Her website is also filled with articles and schedules for events, lectures, and webinars.  So, I urge everyone to check it out.


Dr. Marlene Merritt, DOM, MS Nutrition received her Masters’ degree in Oriental Medicine in 2000 and is a Doctor of Oriental Medicine. She has an additional Masters’ degree in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine from the University of Bridgeport. 

Dr. Marlene Merritt is licensed by the New Mexico Board of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and is nationally board certified in Oriental Medicine. She is an Applied Clinical Nutritionist and is additionally Board Certified in Bariatric Counseling, and certified in the Bredesen MEND Protocol™. 

Dr. Marlene Merritt is also currently enrolled in the Institute for Functional Medicine’s Certification Program to become an IFM Certified Practitioner.

Transformational Nutrition

Transformational nutrition teaches us that having optimal health is not just about food.

We need to create a more significant conversation for health because food alone won’t fix us. We’re in for such a treat today because Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia teaches the psychology and spirituality of transformation and health. You’ll get to learn how to have a more vibrant life with transformational nutrition.

Through The Darkness

Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia shares that one time when she was speaking at a women’s conference. She talked about transformation, health, and weight loss as well as how to empower yourself, take control of life and health as a woman.

When it was time to have the audience ask questions, a woman asked her how to get through all of the darkness. Another woman openly voiced her doubts about whether Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia could adequately answer the question since she seemed to have such a good life.

But nothing could be farther from the truth. Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia’s whole life had been a struggle because she grew up in extreme poverty, drug abuse, alcohol abuse, and domestic abuse. She was also sexually abused when she was six years old. So, in reality, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia lived a life that required her to be a survivor.

Hitting Rock Bottom

That’s not all. Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia also tried to kill herself by overdosing on pills years ago. She was so sick, had chronic fatigue, was 25 lbs. overweight, had severe acne, memory loss, and brain fog.

Naturally, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia was in no condition to work, so she was broke. It didn’t help that she didn’t have family nor many close friends. She recalls living in a constant state of fear and panic. And although she tried many things, nothing helped.

One day, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia decided to pull herself up. Taking a shower, she discovered lumps on her breasts, hence hit rock bottom that day. She again felt utterly broken. So she still thought of suicide, suffered from depression and mental health issues. She felt so sick of fighting.

“But I heard this voice, and it was my wake call. That voice said, “This hasn’t happened to you. It’s happened to you.” I then realized these things were supposed to be happening for me. Because I realized that at that moment, greatness was my birthright,” said Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia.

Investing In Herself

Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia ended up signing up for a nutrition certification program when she decided to invest in herself. She went on to other school and training programs. And as her health improved, she slowly began to work with clients.

“It’s not just about the food. The food alone will never heal us. There are reasons behind why we know what to do, and yet we still won’t do it,” said Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia. “I also realized we have this deeper hunger. So, understand your spirituality and what you are hungry for.” 

She adds, “I started understanding the spiritual connection, relationships and heart connection was so important to healing. That’s when I started to see true transformation.” 

Developing Transformational Nutrition

From that period, good things started to unfold. Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia’s weight fell off, her skin cleared up, and the lumps in her breasts turned out to be fibers, not cancers. She also started to understand at a deeper level the root cause of her health issues and heart issues.

Furthermore, remembering her deal with God, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia got to work and started helping other people. Combining the science of nutrition with the psychology and spirituality nutrition, that’s where she created a method called transformational nutrition.

Shortly after she created the transformational nutrition method, more people wanted to dive deeper into learning more about it.  So, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia turned it into a more significant educational focus. She started a school and called it the Institute of Transformational Nutrition. Now, the school certifies people to become transformational nutrition coaches.

How To Begin Your Transformation

First of all, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia says you have to understand what you are and why you are that way. Because ultimately, when you know, you’ll automatically transform into who you’re always meant to be. It’s only then can you step into your power. 

“I like to ask people what they are hungry for. And what we’re all hungry for in the end is validation and acceptance for who we are. Usually, we are trying to be a version of ourselves that we think other people want. So we end up pretending our entire lives,” explains Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia. 

She adds, “We are compromising who we are and what we want, as well as the things that truly make us happy. You don’t have transformation if you don’t experience some biological change, some spiritual change, and some psychological change. You have to develop a deeper understanding and a deeper truth that you can truly embody before you truly heal.”

Ultimately, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia says it’s really about getting out of your head and into your heart. She says we tend to be logical, but that’s not the way we work. Instead, we make all of our decisions based on emotions and then we use logic to back it up.

Understanding Emotions

Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia shares that in reality, emotions only last for 90 seconds. Because the thing that makes it last longer are the stories that you keep replaying in your head about the experience.

“A belief is made up of three things. It’s the event that happened, the emotion that you felt and the explanation that you gave it,” said Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia. “So when you are feeling these emotions, go back to the explanations that you gave it. I think we have to remember if we want to be understood, we need to understand.”

How We Deal With Negativity

As humans, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia says we have this thing called negativity bias. It’s when we hear something negative, we latch on to it and see that as the truth. We then spend the rest of our lives searching for evidence that the belief is true.

“It’s just the way we’re built. And it’s designed to protect us. It is designed to show us our flaws. So just let it go and stop beating yourself up,” advises Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia. 

She adds, “We are just hardwired to pay more attention to negative information than positive information. Then it goes back to the most basic need which is just survival. When there has been extreme trauma in a person’s life, they can block the memory out, and the brain won’t remember.”

Blocking The Trauma

Our brain is indeed a very powerful organ. Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia personally witnessed it when her sister did not remember having a child after a car accident, and her child passed away.

“The body’s number one goal is to stay alive. And the brain knows that. So, if the brain knows something that the body can’t handle, it just blocks it out. And you won’t remember it,” Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia said.

Essentially, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia says you have to understand what’s going on in your mind and your spirit if you genuinely want to heal. Because it is very powerful.

“See what serves you, and always look within yourself for that truth. But if you don’t ever live your truth, you’re always going to be imprisoned by other people’s opinions. You will always be hungry for that one thing you don’t have.”

Numbing The Pain

When you numb pain, you numb joy. Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia says when you are numbing that past that caused trauma and the fear you felt from that, you’re numbing happiness and bliss.  So mostly, you’re taking away all of your power and giving it to the past, and that’s not okay.

“You’ll never be able to fill those void with anything other than what’s missing in the first place,” said Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia. “Food is so acceptable. So is the glorification of wine and drinking especially for moms and entrepreneurs. Because it is socially acceptable. We have to be willing to get back into the driver’s seat of our own life.” 

She adds, “We’re here because we follow the status quo. But the real reason why we’re here is because we gave up our power. It’s time to do something different and time to start understanding. Furthermore, it’s a time to reconnect with who you are and a time to share and understand.”
