5G Ringside Seat Podcasts introduces the work of leading experts, working on the new frontier of 5G law, policy, science, technology, and innovation. Although the goal is to cause a redirect toward a safer, greener, more resilient, and life affirming national and international industrial infrastructure, many different perspectives are welcome, expressed by distinguished panelists, in a spirit of free, open, and respectful dialogue.
Recent studies by Mayo Clinic and other gold standard healthcare organizations are warning that burnout among physicians and nurses is extensive throughout the medical profession, especially in mid-career Generation X physicians. Less well considered, however, is how constant RFR exposure in hospitals may tip burnout with even more disastrous consequences for physicians, nurses, and patients. The problem is complex. Many physicians are replacing pagers with cell phones which they deem essential to performing their jobs well, and cellphones are addictive. At the same time hospitals are now awash in 4G wireless RFR, and many hospital administrators are rushing to install new wireless 5G (25-100+GHz) on roof tops, intensive care units, oncology and pediatric wards, and other vulnerable areas. Physicians, nurses, and hospital administrators are in deep denial. From a legal perspective the harms of RFR exposure are science-based, foreseeable, and preventable. Hospital administrators have a legal and moral obligation of heightened vigilance and care to ensure a safe hospital environment for patients, physicians, and nurses. How to resolve what appears as a tragic choice? This Ringside Seat podcast identifies a practical path forward for hospital communities in consultation with certified building biologists: to monitor and continuously measure RFR exposures; post warnings similar to X-ray laboratories; refuse or limit installations by telecom providers of 5G antennas nearby and inside hospitals; establish RFR-free safe zones; appoint a Chief Wellness Officer, and introduce CME courses in the new field of Clinical Electromagnetics and Self-Care.
Burnout and Impaired Resilience
Challenges to the Medical Profession
- Oxidative stress and nurses in intensive care units
- Burnout and impaired immunity among healthcare providers
- Cellphone use and addiction
Burnout as a Complex Health Condition
Costs of Burnout
Stages of Change
- Burnout and Denial
- Stop, Look, Go! (with Brother David Steindl-Rast)
- 5 Minutes to Resilience
- Consensus Trance and ways to recover from it.
- Semmelweis There is a striking parallel between the current denial and hostility to the idea of RFR contamination in hospitals and the 19th century denial by the medical establishment of antisepsis reflected in the tragedy of Ignaz Semmelweis, which eventually led to the germ theory of disease pioneered by Pasteur and Lister.

Natalie Sadler, MD, is a psychiatrist with 28 years of experience, specializing in a holistic approach that integrates conventional medicine with supplements, nutrition, and mindfulness practices to calm the nervous system. She received her medical degree from the University of Texas Medical School in Houston (now McGovern Medical School) and completed her residency training at UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill. At her private practice (recently relocated from Chapel Hill, NC to Black Mountain, NC), Dr. Sadler has seen an increasing number of complicated symptoms in the past ten years related to high exposures to EMFs. Recognizing the unmet need to treat those suffering from the effects of RFR, Dr. Sadler has been integrating the recognition and treatment of EMF-related medicine into her holistic practice.
Mary Anne Tierney, RN, MPH is a Building biologist in certification and a psychiatric nurse with a long history as a community health educator, coordinating coalitions on complex public health issues. As an electrosensitive person and mother, she has a deep passion for preventing RFR health-related issues and a commitment to helping others to thrive ~ despite our wireless world.
