Talia Ram joins the podcast to talk about one of the most overlooked biohacks for health optimization… lighting! With a wide variety of types of light exposure ranging from natural sunlight outdoors to artificial indoor lighting, she breaks down how it all impacts our health and what we can do about it.
Beautiful lighting has been a lifelong affair for Talia, who, as the daughter of Lumiram founders Corinne and Jacques Ram, grew up immersed in lighting. So it seemed a natural progression that four years ago, Talia joined the ranks as resident wellness lighting expert for the company, drawing on her intimate knowledge of the product and her 10 years of experience as a meditation and yoga teacher. Talia Ram is the resident wellness lighting expert of Lumiram. Lumiram is the original maker of neodymium glass light sources and has been a leader in full spectrum lighting since first opening its doors in Europe in 1959. Lumiram has been invested in filling homes and businesses with beautiful oases of pure uplifting light through their signature line of Chromalux® full spectrum neodymium glass bulbs.
