"When I signed up for the 21-Day Digital Detox program, I wasn't sure what I got myself into as I thought that I would have to limit my access to electronics during the program. It turns out that the program provides easy to do' action steps to reduce exposures to EMFs as Sophia breaks the program down into small chunks of information and actionable items. I engaged my 2 boys (age 14 and 9) in the program each day they looked forward to learning more. We gained so much awareness about EMFs throughout the program and we've made some changes to reduce our exposures to EMFs.

I'm so grateful for Sophia for creating this program and I highly recommend it to anyone who cares about their health and the health of their loved ones."

After reading A to Z of D-Toxing, I began charging my phone on a dresser across the room instead of on my bedside table. Whereas before the change, I woke at frequent intervals throughout the night, now I sleep more peacefully the whole night through.

I never thought I could put my phone on airplane mode, because I'm in the habit of sifting through all the notifications when I wake up—for news, and especially for work. But after being challenged to do so, I found I was able to sleep more soundly, and it turns out I don't miss reading notifications first thing in the morning! If I can do it, anyone can.

Sophia's advice has helped me reduce chronic health symptoms that I've experienced for decades, such as daily head- and stomach- aches, and skin irritations. I'm grateful that this d-tox strategy gave me more control over my health! Thank you, Sophia!

Though I've had many discussions with friends regarding the benefits of removing electronics from the bedroom for a better night's sleep, it's not until recently that I finally decided to test it out. I started by simply turning my cell phone (which is always on my night table when I sleep) on airplane mode. That night I had the deepest, most restorative sleep I'd had in years! The difference in my quality of sleep was unmistakable. The experiment also brought awareness to the fact that I hadn't been sleeping well all this time.

Sophia's Detox Your EMFs program is a great step-by-step guide. It's so well researched with lots of practical tips on how to protect yourself and
your family.

I loved each day's video. The daily checklists got me thinking about
real-life practicalities. One big change we made is to have our Wi-Fi router on a timer. Now it switches off at night, giving us less exposure to EMFs while catching that all-important deep restorative sleep. The extra video links were very interesting and insightful. The one on electromagnetic hypersensitivity was invaluable. It helped convince my engineer husband!

I highly recommend the course.

My daughter has developed a very debilitating sensitivity to EMF radiation
I have read the section on EMFs in your excellent book A to Z of D-Toxing. The book's a great source of very valuable information. I am very impressed and grateful to you for having put this out.





I have done 7 days of having my phone on airplane mode while I sleep. It definitely allows me to sleep better. I'm not a great sleeper anyway, so I'll take all the help I can get!
