The Healthier Tech Podcast is the show bringing you a practical solutions-based approach to understanding how best to live in balance with our increasing reliance on tech.

The show from Shield Your Body brings you expert voices that clearly explain the science that matters to you, and the usable tips that you can use to live healthier, while defending against the health risks of modern day technologies.

Today on the show we welcome Adam Cox. Adam is one of the most in-demand experts on addiction in Europe, but he is not your average specialist! As a Psychologist and Hypnotherapist he has helped hundreds of clients as well as educating himself deeply on understanding the many individual addiction issues to be able to help people at the core level. As well as helping others overcome obstacles, Adam has also really figured out what it takes to create a success-focused psychology, having become a self-made millionaire at the age of 27 by launching one of the UK top-rated PR agencies.

As Adam shares in this episode, he was being approached frequently by parents who were worried about their children spending too much time on gadgets and streaming devices. At that stage the NHS didn't have the knowledge to be able to assist with the challenges that were being faced. This ever-growing tech addiction has affected not only children, but people of all ages who are increasingly seeking solace in digital devices. As Adam mentions in this episode, devices and online connectivity is often enabling users to meet all kinds of human needs such as pleasure, gratification, connection that are not being met in real life.
