Best Practices in Biohacking

My adventures in bio-hacking began at the deep end. I was facing inexplicable health problems and had just gotten genetic results that raised more questions than answers.

But my survival was at stake, so I dove in and studied. In a few weeks I knew more about my issues than my medical experts did.

Your needs might not be as dire as mine were, but whatever your reasons for bio-hacking—to optimize cognition, heal, address mysterious health issues—you have the same challenges I had, and still have: how do you know what works? What doesn't? What's real? What's not?

Let me tell you what I figured out.

THE BASIC PROBLEM

No one is average. Our bodies are complicated, and each of us are unique systems. We're multifactor microbiomes, affected not only by what we consume, but also by our environments, history, genetics, and even (believe it or not), our belief systems.

Everything we do to ourselves—foods, supplements, drugs, meds, light therapy, intermittent fasting, and all the rest—works along side, or at odds with, all the other things we're already doing. Like it or not.

And the kicker: we only have one test subject to try things out on, one that we can't afford to break.

So: how to assess what's working, track progress, and to decide who to believe? And stay safe?

Here's how I do it.

KEEP RECORDS

Navigating the world of bio-hacking can be daunting. Your records can help you figure out not only where you've been, but where to go.

A daily log

In your log, you track the things you introduce to your system, and what results you notice. This could include focus, cognition, sleep, mood, energy, and any other key indicators that you're hoping to change.

A log might seem like overkill when you're only picking up your first blue glasses, but in three years, when you've been all over the blue-red light map and back again, and your supplement stack is 30 deep, you'll wish you had records to answer questions like: what happened day one? When did the effect fade? What else were you taking? What did you notice? A month later? When did you stop? Why?

Ask questions. Write your speculations and uncertainties in the log. It's a living document, a place to put data, questions, and answers. Got a science background? It's your lab book.

Train your brain. Writing daily about observations in body and mind trains your brain to notice those things. Better internal assessment is a learnable skill. That is, the more you do this, the more you'll notice.

Start simple. A text file with date and notes is perfectly sufficient. Keep it simple so you'll really do it.

What to track? You could track everything—meals, external events, weather, illness, your mother-in-law's visit. But you probably won’t. It's more important that you log daily than that you try to be thorough.

Hashtags: Changing something? Tag it. For example, #dayone for the introduction of something new, or #dropped for a day when you stop using something. Now you can search for just those changes.

A daily log can tell you a lot. As you accumulate data, there will be more and more opportunities to see interesting patterns. I have repeatedly been able to figure out some puzzle or correlation by going over my log. 

First establish the habit. That is, get started. 

A current stack

Your stack is your master list of everything you're taking. It's a handy reference, and you'll want it when talking about your protocol to collaborators or medical experts.

Include everything: supplements, drugs, and anything else you're applying to yourself to improve your health. Don't leave something out just because you've been taking it for years.

Drugs versus vitamins. There is no hard line between Rx, supplements, herbs, stimulants, drugs, and (some) topicals; they are all substances that you are applying to your body in order to change your state.

Dose, form, and frequency. How much, what kind, and how often. Specific notes, like "zinc isolated from copper". When the brand is key, I'll list that, too. Confirm your units—mcg is not the same as mg.

Formulas and complexes. I rarely use supplemental formulas or complexes, because I want to control for both quality and quantity of ingredients, possibly in varying amounts over time. But when I do use a formula, I include every ingredient, because often what's buried in those long lists matters.

Keep it simple. Don't be getting crazy with the spreadsheets. Unless it makes you happy, in which case, by all means do. (Spreadsheets are mood-boosters for some people.)

Keep archives. When you change your stack, save the last version with a date-stamp, so you have history.

Watch your privacy

I don't give my log or stack out to just anyone. These are personal records that constitute a snapshot of my health and history. If you decide to put these in the cloud for convenience, that's fine, but be sure to check your privacy settings.

Some people do all this in the open. Log, stack, and everything, in order to share their results. That's great. Just make sure to do it deliberately. Once all this is public, you can’t take it back.

Tracking tools

There are also online tracking tools, some of them free. If you prefer those, by all means use them. Whatever works for you.

Keep in mind that simple is powerful; a text file with daily notes is a tracking tool that you control completely, with no ads, that you don't have to learn, and that keeps your personal info personal.

But the best tracking tools are the ones you'll use.

READY TO DIVE?

Chances are good you're already bio-hacking something, if not a bunch of somethings. Taking a multi-vitamin? Fish oil? Rx? That's bio-hacking.

What's your next bio-hack trial? A trial or experiment is when you change or introduce something to your protocol to see what happens. It’s a test that you’re performing on your body and mind.

Removing something from your stack is also a bio-hack trial. This can be just as important as adding something, especially if what you're taking away is interfering with your health. For example, for many of us, removing folic acid can make a tremendous positive difference in health.

Megadosing? Trying something edgy? The less mainstream your trial, the more risk you're taking on. To ameliorate those risks, be informed. Do some research.

Ah, yes: research.

RESEARCH

The research paradox

From day one, I needed to know all about vitamin B12. It didn't take long for me to feel daunted by the mountain of data and opinions, much of it contradictory.

Once you get into research, it's easy to soak up time diving deep into the rabbit hole, and end up with the impression that you know less than you did when you started.

The paradox is this: whatever it is you want to know, no amount of research will be enough to give you certainty. Often, the more informed you are, the more confused you'll be.

Now you’re one of us. Welcome to bio-hacking.

Shifting sands

The vast landscape of medical and supplemental research and opinion is always in transition. That is, research results can change over time, and often do. This applies to both N=1 opinion pieces and peer-reviewed NIH research.

To make matters worse, various supplements affect each other in different ways, and at different doses. Research rarely takes this into account, because multi-factor inputs make research results hard to come by, so studies are narrow in scope. Or, in other words, it’s hard to design a study that allows for a whole bunch of moving parts, so researchers don’t, because they (understandably) want clear results out of a study in to which they're putting time and money.

But the body is a system of interdependent and interlocking metabolic pathways, and things don't work in isolation. Put one thing into yourself, and you affect the other things. This means that the research describes results across a large number of bodies, with limited variables, and so does not reliably predict outcomes for specific bodies, like yours.

Also, the supplement form matters, sometimes a great deal, and research does not always account for that. For example, there is no such thing as just b12, despite what your pharmacy or doctor might tell you. If you’re getting a b12 shot, be aware of the potential downside of putting cyanocobalamin into your body rather than the native and bioavailable methylcobalamin. For some bodies, that difference is critical.

Take notes. Again, simplicity is your friend. Me, I simply cut and paste bits of my research findings, along with links. The best notes for you are the ones you'll actually use.

How much research is enough? The answer is as individual as you are. How far down I dive depends on many things, including the urgency of my need, the relative risks of whatever I'm trialing, how much time I have, what my experts tell me, and my appetite for adventure.

Some things are pretty safe. Ascorbic acid, for example, is widely considered by substantial research to be very safe to high amounts. It’s hard to damage yourself by taking too much. But I once came across someone who was allergic to it, even at low doses. There are always exceptions.

Quick and dirty research

When you're ready to research, the time is now. Here's how I do it:

  1. Dive in. Whatever your question is, type it into your search engine, and see what pops. Results will include both commercial and science-based articles. They're both useful, but learn to tell the difference.
  2. Skim! Slam through a bunch of articles to sift for the information you want. You don't need to understand everything. You’ll get better and faster with practice. Also, don’t limit yourself to the first page of search results.
  3. Use overview or survey articles. These digest a bunch of research and summarize for you. My go-to for supplement-based overviews is examine.com. They don't cover all substances, but what they cover, they cover well. Even so, read critically--their conclusions do not always apply to specific individuals, and that's what you are.
  4. Dire warnings? Don't be discouraged by conflicting assertions. Make notes and move on. Draw conclusions after you've got more opinions. Someone is always happy to provide worst-case scenarios, or tell you that your solution won’t work, but theirs will.
  5. Read for bias. Commercial articles in particular are selling something, or promoting a particular set of beliefs. While there are excellent commercial sources of information, and I rely on many of them, be alert for the potential bias based on what they are selling, so you can calibrate how much stock to put in their conclusions.
  6. Check the date. Baseline medical research assumptions change over time. Ten years might not be too long for your information to be relevant, depending on your trial, but fifty might. What we thought about magnesium and calcium thirty years ago is not what we think today. Many articles won't show dates, but you can often estimate the decade in which an article was written by looking at the dates on the references list at the end. Unless there are no citations? Not a good sign.
  7. Quality articles cite other quality articles. Follow the links. See if they're useful--or if they even exist. You can often assess the quality of an article by the references it cites.
  8. Science! Don't be afraid to dip into scientific research papers that are beyond your pay-grade and comprehension. It’s okay to skim. Think of it as grazing: you don't need to digest everything. Follow the links, see where they lead. Also, research papers vary widely in readability, so keep looking.
  9. Narrow the search. Sometimes you'll want to limit your search to non-commercial sites. Here's one way: magnesium -site:*.com
  10. Make friends. People are research sources, too. The other N=1 researchers out there can be extremely valuable—some of them know things that medical research hasn't caught up with yet. If you're playing on the edge, you need other edge-players as your cohort. So... 

COLLECT PEOPLE 

Whatever your on-ramp to bio-hacking happens to be—whatever drew you to seek new ways to heal or improve your body and mind—find people who share your interests and situation. Other bio-hackers, sympathetic doctors, pharmacists, biochemists, and folks facing similar challenges. Be friendly. Compare notes. Offer your own discoveries.

A few years ago I asked to speak with a pharmacist who was compounding methylcobalamin (MeCbl) for me. (Tip: learn the abbreviations for common nutritional supplements--those of us who have been doing this for a while use them all the time.) In the course of the conversation, I learned about his informal lab testing in which he discovered that MeCbl in liquid form is relatively insensitive to heat. Because I was pleasant and curious, he was willing to share with me specific temperatures and degradation percentages. We both knew about light sensitivity—liquid MeCbl is quickly destroyed by light—but the heat was new information to me and very useful. A private lab, a personal test, so this information didn't exist online. I would never have known if I hadn't struck up a friendly conversation with him.

So talk to people. They have a wealth of information. Connect. If you're not sure how, now's a good time to learn.

Where do you find these people?

Online communities

Yes, there’s a lot of noise in online groups. Use your shiny new research skills to sanity check people's assertions and identify the people worth listening to.

You'll find lots of online communities to choose from. Among others, I use: phoenixrising.org, longecity.org, facebook Bio Hacker Tribe, and quora. But there are many more.

Want a narrow scope? Search for your interests, and see what groups pop in your search engine. That's how I found phoenixrising.org, which led me to my first life-saving protocol.

Or roll your own. I started a slack group to which I invited people with similar goals to hang out and chat. You can, too.

Conflicting opinions

It won't take long for you to slam into strongly held and conflicting assertions, along with dire warnings. Experts will disagree. 

Keep in mind that no matter how exciting someone else's results are, you might not get their results. Bodies are complicated, and what works for them might not work for you.

Also, they might be lying.

Don’t believe everything you hear

Even those reporting in good faith might be getting it wrong. It's very human to attribute causality to the most recent thing you've added, or to that thing in which you have invested in most heavily. Was it expensive? It has to be working! Was it free? Couldn't be causal.

Generally speaking, we like to be right. And most of us are not very good at analyzing our results in anything like a scientific manner.

Really, we all have blind spots, and however well-meaning and educated, no one is immune to getting it wrong, including doctors, researchers, and all manner of people with many letters after their names.

And you and me. This is part of why it’s important to keep a log and do our own research: to sanity check our own assessments.

Who should you listen to?

Sooner or later, you'll want to try something based on someone else's advice. You probably already are. Who told you to take omega-three FAs again?

When I started down this road, I needed answers and I needed them now, because my health was declining fast. My research led me to people who had studied my issues—experts—but they disagreed with each other, often vehemently. While one person would claim to know what would work for me, another assured me that it would destroy me.

But I had to trust someone.

Here is how I decided who to listen to.

Body of work?

We live in a time when anyone who posts regularly has a body of work. If you find someone whose voice you are inclined to trust, see what else they've written. Examine all of their posts, just like research.

Are they sensible? Well-reasoned? Analytical in their approach? Open-minded enough to know that one size does not fit all?

Do they cite other research? Ever? Reference other people's work? Ever? Follow the links.

And who, if anyone, cites them?

Open minded?

An open mind holds more facts. Do they consider opposing points of view, or shut them down? I look for phrases like, "I could be wrong" or "yet data also indicates..." or my favorite: "I don't know".

An expert who can admit that they don't know something, in public, impresses me tremendously, because that's someone who is willing to learn something new. No matter how knowledgeable a person is, there is always something unknown. A person with an open mind is less attached to their conclusions than to finding out what works.

That's who I want on my side.

Skin in the game?

Have they tried it themselves? I have a lot of respect for someone who not only advises others, but is on the road themselves.

YOU ARE THE COMMUNITY

Listen, it's real work to post useful information to an online group. It takes time, and research, and a thick skin. So if someone is helping your research by making the effort and taking the risk to post publicly, support them however the forum allows. Appreciation can go a long way to keeping someone knowledgeable in the community.

I've left places that didn't value my reports, or where I got tired of derisive responses. Others will, too.

You create the community you want by being part of it. Did someone help you? Make sure they know. Up-vote their comments. Support them, and they’ll be more likely to stay. Reach out to them, appreciate them.

This is how we connect.

YOUR BODY, YOUR RISK

The more edgy your protocol or bio-hacking explorations, the more you need to look for multiple points of view.

But you are going to have to make your own risk assessments because the buck stops with you. It's your body. No matter whose advice you are following, it's still your body.

And you only get one.

Think critically.

MEDICAL TESTS?

Should you get medical tests? These days you can engage with testing labs directly for most tests. That is, you don't need a doctor to prescribe them.

But should you? And if so, which tests?

There is no one answer, and much depends on your situation and financial resources. Testing is a bit like research: it can be a rabbit hole, as well as an unending, ever more expensive opportunity to engage with the health care system. Also, a good many things can't be accurately tested for, or the tests don't accurately convey what your body is doing.

The question to ask is, what questions can the test answer? What will it tell you? What actions might the results imply?

I keep a few medical professionals on tap, doctors and experts who support my bio-hacking and are willing to help me figure out what tests will best serve as key indicators and a safety net for my experiments. If you have a particular issue you're struggling with or are doing something risky, it can make sense to get tests as a sanity check that you aren't going too far.

There’s a lot of information out there about tests. Apply your research chops to this topic, too.

THE INCONVENIENT TRUTH: N=1

What works for you won't work for me. Your minimum effective dose is far above my maximum tolerable dose. What I can barely feel hits you like a ton of bricks. You can't understand my reactions, because they're nothing like yours.

Some of us live under the steep part of bell-curve when it comes to research results, meaning that our reactions vary dramatically from the expected norms. That is, we don't fit the model, so research often does not accurately predict our responses. I suspect a larger number of us find our way to bio-hacking because we have to--the usual solutions don't work.

Even those with more typical biochemistry are unique. Between our microscopic visitors--some of whom mean us ill, and some of whom who are very good friends-- environmental factors--food, pollution, toxins, air and water--genetics, disease history, physical stresses, emotional shifts, we are each of us complicated systems, not points on a curve.

Fortunately, for most of us, our bodies are pretty good at finding a steady state, even with these millions of varying inputs. But the inputs are not controllable, let alone countable, so bio-hack trials are often hard to analyze.

Bottom-line: this whole bio-hacking thing is educated guesswork.

So get educated. Look for articles, examine your own data, and have conversations with like-minded and like-bodied cohorts.

Don't forget primary research.

Primary research

In addition to all the other research you're doing, note the information about your body and mind that no one else has access to: your own senses.

Many bio-hackers have a particular mindset: we do things to ourselves and then we change. But it's not quite that simple. Your body regulates massively complicated biochemical pathways, so any one thing you change might not do anything at all. Or it might. Or maybe later.

How do you know if something’s happening? Working? Your body is giving you information all the time. Are you listening?

Learn to notice what your body is telling you.

THE CONSERVATIVE APPROACH

Research results reflect a statistical bell curve. If you live in the shallow end of that curve--if you're unusual for any reason--many research results simply won't apply to you, so it's best to take them with a larger grain of salt.

Even if you are in the fat middle of the bell curve, there are good reasons to be conservative in your approach to bio-hacking: you’re messing with a complicated, multi-factor system, and you only get one body to put at risk.

If you’re inclined to be conservative, here are some guidelines:

One thing at a time. Leave  a few days between each new thing's trial. If you do one thing at a time, you're more likely to be able to isolate effects and identify what is effective, and to give your body a chance to weigh in before you go on to the next thing. Do two or more things at once, and you won’t know what’s doing what, positive or negative. Or both at once, which does happen.

Avoid formulas. Yes, it's more trouble to break out each item, but you'll also have more control over quality, dose, and timing. Also, one thing at a time.

Low and slow. Start low and titrate up. That is, begin at the low end of the sensible dose range, and increase slowly, by no more than 50% of the first dose. You know how low to start, because you’ve already done the research on dose ranges, right?

Your mileage may vary. Don’t assume you’ll have the reactions others do. And just because something is statistically safe doesn't mean your body will agree. So pay attention to the actual results.

The moving target

Every day, your body changes. Even if you tried something in the past and it was good, that’s the past. With all the other things you've been doing and trialing since then--along with time, accident, illness, aging, and the million other factors, visible and invisible--you are now a different system.

So, when you take that thing again after a break, treat it as a new thing.

Make small mistakes

I wasn’t conservative when I started on this path, because I needed results fast, and I was willing to take risks. So I won’t tell you what to do with your one-and-only body, but I will tell you that even when I did those risky things, I researched the hell out of them first.

I made mistakes. Luckily, they were small ones.

The farther off the mainstream you are with your bio-hacking, the more you need to be as well-informed as possible. You'll make mistakes, of course. But make small ones.

Don't be the idiot who took something lethal because you didn't even do cursory research. It's embarrassing and looks bad on your obit.

Some substances are actually and truly dangerous. Other things are only dangerous at high levels. Or in combinations with other things. If a thing is risky, get more sources. If it’s dangerous, start low. If it’s edgy, pay more attention to what your body is telling you.

Remember, just because everyone else is taking something—or says they are--doesn't make it safe, or safe for you.

LEARN FROM MY MISTAKES

I’ve learned a lot on my path, some things the hard way. Learn from my mistakes.

Form matters

Tremendously, sometimes. For example, magnesium oxide is used in many supplements because it's inexpensive, but research indicates it has poor bio-availability, meaning that it doesn't provide much in the way of nutritional value. It is, however, very useful if you are constipated. What problem are you trying to solve?

For a year or so, I assumed I was getting nutritional magnesium. When I moved to a more bioavailable form of magnesium, I felt the difference.

How about folate, aka vitamin B9? The cheap version of folate that most formulas use is folic acid, but for a significant portion of the population, folic acid does not replace bioavailable folate, and will instead cause methylation cycle degradation, which, to put it mildly, you want to avoid. Folic acid made me very ill, very fast. Given what large percentage of the population has my genetic variances, I now wonder if folic acid may be one of the causes of chronic illness, inserted as it is into enriched flour and so many formulas.

Know your forms.

Labels matter

Know what you're taking before you put it into your body. Each ingredient should be one you want in you. If the manufacturer's description on the label is vague or sloppy, that tells you something about that manufacturer.

Read the labels. Research what doesn’t make sense to you. Don’t assume the manufacturer knows what they are doing just because they distribute supplements. I routinely contact manufacturers to ask questions about something on the labels, or something that’s missing. You can, too.

Tip: supplement ingredients can often be found online in text form. This is especially useful for putting chemical names into your stack, and for formulas that contain many ingredients. Why retype from the label if you don’t have to?

Brands matter

Here is something I really want you to know:

There are no controls on supplements, the way there are on prescription drugs, except for the testing and quality assurance the company might be doing, but probably isn't. There are brands that do third party testing--the gold standard for supplementation--but you'll pay extra for that.

Let me say that again, because it's critically important, especially if you're playing on the edge with new substances and high doses:

No third party is checking that the supplement you are putting in your body is what it says it is.

Or, in other words, what you’re taking could have anything in it. Anything. Something not on the label. Something toxic. No one is checking to be sure it's safe for you.

This is why brand matters. A brand's good reputation is your best defense.

When I research, I read product reviews, and a lot of them. Tip: check dates, because brands change their supplements and formulas all the time. A three year old review might not be for the same product, even if nothing obvious has changed about the picture or description. Check the dates.

Dose can cure or kill

Some supplements, plants, and drugs are perfectly safe and can heal at one dose, but are dangerous or even lethal at another. Aspirin, for example. It’s quite safe. But consume enough of it, and yes, it will kill you.

Check the LD50 so that you know the safe upper limit.

Know your LD50

LD50 stands for "Lethal Dose 50%." It is the dose of a given substance that will kill half of the test subjects. Yep: half! I'm sure the other half doesn't feel so good, either.

Rats or mice are usually our ill-fated stand-ins, so learn to convert rodent units for LD50 to your own body weight, so you know the upper limits for megadosing. Don't let those mice have died for nothing.

Oh, and get your units right.

LD50 helps define the bounds of reason. But don't panic about it. Gravity and water can kill you, too, if you take them in too much quantity. But you also need them to live.

Thing One and Thing Two

Interactions matter. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that supplement X and supplement Y, either of which I could tolerate just fine, together produced severe insomnia. Because there were two factors involved, it didn’t make sense until I finally noticed the correlation in my log. 

Learn to trust your senses

Noticing what’s going on in your body is a learned skill. Improve your brain's ability to notice what's happening with major sensory indicators of health, and you have a powerful tool to use to assess what is and isn’t working.

What indicators? All of them, including sleep, digestion, mood, energy, focus, digestion, temperature, and anything else you notice. 

There is no test, expert, or research, that is a substitute for your own senses. Only you know how your body feels from the inside.

Got a bias?

When people tell me about their good results in bio-hacking trials, they often downplay it as placebo or wishful thinking. This is especially true of people who are in pain, sick, and desperate, and have been for a while. Totally understandable; they've already tried so many things that they end up skeptical of everything.

I understand. I’ve been there.

But if you demand that your body demonstrate loud and incontrovertible results before you believe that anything is working, you will fail to notice the subtler messages. This mind-set can dull your ability to gain useful information early on in a trial.

Think critically, yes, but also listen to the quieter and nuanced information your senses are giving you.

It goes in the log

Even if I'm not sure what it means, it goes in the log.

When you're navigating a complicated biochemical system, you need every clue you can get, even--especially--the stuff you can't make sense of yet. My log has helped me correlate causal inputs, even years later. 

Your log is a gold mine of data, but only if you use it.

SUMMING UP

Use everything you can to understand your N=1 experiments.

 Keep records. A daily log, however brief. A stack of everything you're trying. Keep it simple, so you'll really do it.

 Research. Commercial, scientific, and hacker boards--it's all research. Learn to skim. Read critically. Take notes.

 Cultivate an analytical yet open mind. Make notes about your speculations, theories, questions. What works, what doesn't.

 Stay safe. Where known, establish a safety range. Start low and slow. Be sensitive to your body's response.

 Know what you’re taking. Read labels. Check the manufacturer. Read reviews.

 Build community. Ask questions. Offer perspectives. Be gracious and polite, even to people who aren't.

 Collect experts. Become one, even. This is an N=1 game, yes, but we are all playing, so it's also N=many. I could never have made the gains I have made without help.

 Primary research: what do you notice? What's changing? Assessing internal results is a learned skill. Moving toward greater health is something your body should feel good about.

GO BE BRILLIANT

I believe that everyone—even you!--can do what I did: research, explore, bio-hack with care, and get results.

I have gained significant health improvements with bio-hacking, by taking matters into my own hands, becoming my own expert, making connections in the community, and learning how to do my own research. You can, too.

So go out there and be brilliant.

YOUR TURN

If you've been at this any length of time, you've got your own best practices for bio-hacking.

Drop them in the comments. I want to hear what you do, and find out what tips you can offer me.

Sonia Lyris began her bio-hacking adventures a handful of years ago when her survival suddenly depended on understanding genetic mutations and biochemical pathways in far more detail than she ever had before. With the help of experts, study, and experimentation, she pulled herself back from the edge.

Her work in software and sciences has made her highly pragmatic: does it work? Is it repeatable? What are the potential risks and upsides? How about peer-reviewed research? Who disagrees, and why? Where do the links lead?

Her work in teaching and story-crafting leads her to see that how we view ourselves has everything to do with what we understand, that the very models we employ to comprehend systems constrain what we believe is possible. Or, in other words, we can't change what we can't even imagine.

Because of her work in communications and fine chocolate, she is keenly aware that the human animal loves to be transformed by new experiences, that we crave connection with each other and with our world. Even in this age of electronic sorta-intimacy, it's good to remember that we're actually animals, and that animals need to touch what they love. Hug a tree.

Sonia continues to study a great range of bio-hacking approaches, and while she'll never understand it all, she loves the journey. Living well is the best reward.

Adventure takes many forms. Sonia is happy to be here.

Let's dive.

Want Better Sleep? Read This (A Review of Qualia NIGHT)

More than one-third of Americans have trouble sleeping at night. That's roughly 100,000,000 people. 

Many of them reach for prescription products to help them sleep. 

Many others suffer restless nights, tossing and turning only to awaken in the morning feeling like they haven't slept. 

I used to be one of those people. 

I went to bed at 8pm, read a book till 10pm and then turned out the lights. 

Immediately my head would ramp up and spit out thought after thought. At 2am, frustrated and anxious I would feel like screaming. 

Finally, I found a solution that worked for me. 

I mixed 5-HTP (hydroxtryptophan) with collagen and some water, drank it down and fell asleep. 

I would keep this solution next to my bed for most nights when I couldn't sleep. 

It worked like a charm. 

But it was an unbalanced formula and I had heard that it would eventually burn out my neurotransmitters. So the goal was to use it only a couple times a week. 

I wanted to use it every single day. Because it worked. 

Whenever you take a supplement to sleep, you want to make sure its balanced. 

Taking 5-HTP with collagen wasn't balanced. I had to ensure I took time off every so often to allow my neurotransmitters to re-balance naturally. 

I didn't have the time back then to find a truly balanced formula to help with sleep, but there's now a company that has! 

I'm going to tell you about a new sleep formula called NIGHT that works and was designed by formulators diving deep into the science of biochemistry to ensure its balanced and effective. 

But first.... 

If You Can't Sleep, Try This

Remember, I found a solution to my sleep issues. It was taking 5-HTP and collagen with water. 

This did nothing for my active mind at night. But it definitely allowed me to sleep. 

With more sleep, I had less brain fog and more focused attention. 

I spent a ton of time researching about biohacking, eventually training with Dave Asprey and his team in the first class of bulletproof coaches. 

I learned two things I was doing wrong. One of them from Dave and one from Dr Jack Kruse. 

1. Do the inner emotional work. 

Part of my problem was that I had unresolved emotional issues.. don't we all. But I was actively avoiding dealing with them. I didn't want to talk to anyone about it because I thought people would think I was stupid or broken. My ego was in full force preventing me from living the life I wanted to and of course preventing me from sleeping well. 

Other articles on this blog, and on our newsletter, if you sign up, discuss how I dealt with this part. 

Please start here before relying on a supplement. A supplement will absolutely help, and I find they are valuable while doing the inner work, and then you can wean off all supplements later on.

For you, do the inner work. It will help you sleep. 

2. Block Blue Light After Dark. 

I learned so much about light in those early years it was like drinking from a fire hose. 

When I finally implemented the strategies, my sleep was FOREVER changed. 

I started wearing blue light blocking glasses and my entire world changed. 

I was able to sleep!

Now I sell my own version because I found the so effective. You can get a pair here using discount code primal10. 

Blocking blue light at night helps signal to our body that it's night. The body can then produce the right hormones to help you sleep and get the benefits of sleep.

This is SOOOOO important. If you haven't bought a pair of blueblockers, do this first. 

Next, work on the emotional issues, and if you need a supplement to help, get that while doing the inner work! 

Sometimes You Need Extra Support

 If you've done the blue light blocking and inner emotional work, or perhaps you haven't and just need to sleep, NOW, then a supplement might help. 

Remember, my concoction of 5-HTP and collagen worked wonders for me. 

Now you can try a pre-built sleep supplement that is far safer than prescription compounds. 

And guess what? It's built with that 5-HTP backbone in it that was so effective for me. 

One of the ingredients is L-tryptophan. 5-HTP is just 5-hydroxytryptophan and is a modified version of L-tryptophan. 

Each of these is modified in the body to become serotonin, which is converted to melatonin. 

5-HTP and tryptophan have been shown to decrease anxiety and to aid with sleep. 

Which should be obvious because melatonin is the hormone of sleep. 

Most people are wildly deficient in melatonin. 

This is because light at night destroys melatonin. And most of you are not blocking light at night by wearing blueblocking glasses. 

So you destroy your melatonin. 

Taking a supplement with tryptophan gives your body the precursor to the hormone you are losing by playing on your phone after dark. 

Qualia Night is the pre-built supplement that was designed to help you sleep. You can try it out and save using discount code PRIMALMIND.

L Theanine and Sleep

 Let's take a closer look at the other ingredients. 

L-theanine is associated with relaxation, focus and sleep. 

It's a key compound in green tea. Paired with caffeine, it takes away the caffeine jitters and provides a calm focus. 

At night it can help you relax and sleep better. It has been shown to boost GABA and reduce excitatory neurotransmitters.

Here's an article describing some of the studies showing these effects. 

White Peony

 White peony is one of the oldest remedies in traditional Chinese medicine. It has been used for everything from reducing anxiety to helping with sleep, anxiety, depression, and autoimmune issues. 

Y-Oryzanol

This is a compound from rice bran oil.

There really isn't a ton of studies on this compound yet. It has been used for anxiety and also building lean muscle. Some people use it to boost mental performance and athletic performance. Because not a ton of research has been performed, there isn't a lot of scientific data backing this up, but data from people who use it agree that it is effective. 

 Uridine

Uridine is a naturally occurring nucleic acid that plays a key role in many different neuroregulatory processes. It is believed to support short and long term memory, learning, attention, and executive function.

Mechanisms:

  • Uridine plays a key role in phospholipid synthesis, critical for cell membrane integrity
  • Acts as a novel endogenous neurotransmitter via purinergic receptors
  • Neuroprotective via its interaction with NGF and other integrins and growth factors
  • Supports synaptogenesis and neuroplasticity through increasing cerebral phosphatidylcholine levels needed to create dendrite membranes
  • Elevates dopamine without downregulation
  • Building block of RNA
  • Involved in long term potentiation which mediates memory and learning
  • Found in high amounts in human breast milk
  • Synergistic with choline donors, DHA, and other phospholipids


More Info:

 Ashwagandha

Personally, I love this compound. On days when I'm stressed, I'll take 4 tablets of Ashwagandha before bed. 

It's an adaptogenic herb and helps your body de-stress if its stressed or gain more energy if you need more energy. 

This herb has been in use for over 3,000 years and is well used in ayurved. 

It has been shown to reduce blood sugar, may have anti-cancer properties, may reduce cortisol and anxiety, increase testosterone in men and fertility in women, and increase lean muscle gain.

Light Protocol for Night Shift Workers (and New Moms who might well be considered night shift workers)

So you work at night.

When everyone else is sleeping.  Zzzzzzzzzz……

Maybe you consider yourself a night owl.

Maybe you love the lonlieness of the night.

Perhaps you just need the extra money.

Or in many cases, you’re a new Mom and you HAVE to be up, all hours of the night. AND the day too!

 

Well, I’ve got news for all of you lovely owls. Hoot hoot.

Humans are not nocturnal creatures.

That’s right. We belong in the SUN.

Nocturnal creatures have biology specifically designed to take the universe at night. We humans do not.

Sadly, those of us who like the cavort all night and sleep the day away are working against their biology.

In fact, light at night, referred to as ALAN (Artificial Light At Night) is associated with cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. Yikes!

We have developed a protocol for night shift workers based on tons of requests.

None of this protocol is well researched in the literature because all literature is focused on the fact that daytime living is best for humans. We hear all about the dangers of living at night and being immersed in artificial light and technology. Based on this information, we attempt to come up with a way to trick your body into reversing day for night while maintaining your health. We honestly don’t know if this will work, but its our best guess based on our knowledge of how the body works with light.

 

Light at Night is Not Designed for Humans

Humans are designed to be sleeping when it’s dark. Yep, even at 5pm in the winter.

Regardless of how society has been set up to drain you, your body is supposed to be asleep during the nighttime phase on our planet.

Countless studies show how staying up past dark is detrimental to our health.

We lose the benefits of melatonin, the body’s master anticancer hormone.

We unsync our circadian rhythm which is associated with a host of diseases.

Harvard Medical School had a nice article recently on the Dark Side of light at night. 

Even eating after dark is associated with increased obesity. The Gremlins movie had it right, don’t feed your cells after dark!

Gremlin eating after dark

What The Heck Do I Do?

First, DON’T PANIC.

Do you have your towel?

Good, then let’s get started.

While working at night is not healthy, if you must do it, then it’s a good idea to implement as many strategies as you can to make it better.

The first thing you have to do is understand a little more about your body and about the Earth in order to find the optimal way to work at night.

Clocks are the Key

Our journey into the night must start with the dawn!

Part of the reason working at night is so darn harmful is because we miss the natural cues from the sun telling our body what time it is.

That’s right, our body is like a giant clock. Each and every cell in our body has a clock in it.

Our body clocks are set by the sun via special receptors in the eye.

When we don’t see the sun and instead see artificial light by staying inside, or worse yet, sleep through the dawn, then we confuse our body.

If you are going to sleep at dawn it’s probably best to attempt to reset your clocks to think dawn is dusk.

Then around dusk, when you are getting ready for work, you will have to trick your body into thinking dusk is dawn.

Go outside within 30 minutes of dawn.

If you’re still at work, take a “smoke” break or bathroom break and get outside even for a few minutes.

Block Blue

During the daytime, after you see sunrise, put on a pair of blueblockers and cover your skin to the light.

Your eyes and skin read the light environment and will tell your body it’s daytime.

But you want to go to bed.

Get home and black out your bedroom.

Use blackout curtains or put tonfoil in your windows to block the light (it works).

Keep your blueblockers on and avoid using lights at home if at all possible.

We use RED LIGHTS (Discount Code SLEEP) at home when it should be dark as the body doesn’t react to red lights like it does blue. And remember that nearly all LEDs, CFLs, incandescent, and halogen lights have enough blue in them to disrupt your circadian rhythm.

You are trying to get your melatonin to release. It wont do that if you see blue light.

Go to sleep!

Get a Magnetico

When you go to bed, it’s best to sleep on a huge magnetic field.

Our belief is that the Earth used to have a wayyyy stronger magnetic field years ago and it’s been getting weaker for so long that it’s near zero now.

The magnetic field can help heal our bodies.

But it’s basically disappeared.

Also, if you’re sleeping during the day, the field is lower anyway.

On Earth, the electric field, created by the sun is higher. At night, the magnetic field is higher.

By sleeping on a Magnetico you mimic the natural magnetic field present years ago and at night.

You can watch Dr Bonlie HERE talking about this effect.

Stop Eating!

Don’t eat within 3 hours of your bedtime.

You want to go to sleep without food digesting in your stomach.

Our own research, using an Oura ring sleep data for many years, has shown that meals close to bedtime disrupt deep sleep.

Deep sleep is the time when the body repairs itself. You want as much of that as you can get.

Our deep sleep went from near 2 hours a night to less than an hour a night and sometimes down to 20 minutes if we ate too close to bedtime.

No Technology

This should be obvious by now. Put away the tech.

Technology can disrupt circadian rhythm from the EMF given off by most tech.

In addition, it can be stimulating and make it harder for many people to fall asleep.

Read a book in front of your red light (discount code SLEEP).

Then hit the hay.

Wake up and see the sun

Get up and get outside.

Sensible sun exposure increases vitamin D synthesized by the skin.

Low vitamin D status is associated with so many diseases I don’t even want to list them all. You can search here for many of them.

Because the sun is the BEST source of vitamin D, get outside with as few clothes on as possible and soak up some D.

Don’t wear your blueblockers, sunglasses, glasses, contacts, or sun screen. Get some sun. Be sensible about it and start slow if you haven’t been out much.

Ground

We recommend you stand outside barefoot where it’s safe to do so.

Being connected to the ground may reduce inflammation and increase your energy.

You just can’t substitute real sun and the Earth for any artificial construct.

 

Sunset and Breaking your Fast

Try to time your first meal around sunset.

Sunset is sunrise to you.

Most humans break their fast at sunrise (breakfast).

First we see the sunrise, then we eat.

Eyes covered at work

If possible wear daytime blueblockers or nighttime blueblockers.

You are surrounded by artificial light.

This light has been clearly shown to cause harm after sunset.

You want to let some of it in to keep you alert and awake, but not a constant bombardment.

Wear your blueblockers about half the time if you are able to and keep them off the other half.

If you work on a laptop all night, use an app like Iris.

Conclusion

You must learn to reverse day and night and try to mimic a true 24 hour cycle of light and dark, but in reverse of the actual light and dark on our planet.

While this isn’t ideal, it’s your best bet to survive night shift until you can start sleeping like a non-nocturnal animal again.

 

LANGUAGE OF LIGHT

Here are a few things you might not know about near infrared saunas


Have you ever heard of “COLOR THERAPY”?


“Red near infrared lamps emit mostly orange, and yellow light. Colored light therapy (chromotherapy) is a time honored modality. The orange, and yellow light have been linked to moving energy downwards to the most needy chakras. Red Infra light has been found to stimulate the adrenals, testes, ovaries, and growth. Orange light stimulates the intestines, liver, pancreas, and assimilation. Yellow stimulates the spleen, stomach, and digestion. Healing and detoxification may be enhanced.” 

Not only are you stimulating lower chakras but also your imagination.  The colors of the sunrise and sunset feed the nervous system as well.  We use the sauna in the morning for meditation.  There is something very primal about being naked in a warm protected space that heightens your imagination.  EYES CLOSED ;)  Using the sauna and color therapy your body will start to understand the Language of Light and how it can add another layer of healing to your daily morning ritual.   

sunset at night

Winter is a time for introspection, falling into yourself as creator of so many things, in our modern world, we forget to slow down.  Sometimes creating nothing and sitting still is the thing necessary for our survival.  We all have seasons and cycles.  Using winter cycles to create more down time, more reading time (yes books, with pages) limiting screen time, snuggling with your family or pets, taking slow walks, setting morning rituals, reflection and meditation in the sauna, cryotherapy, and then sleep more! 

If you are looking for ways to improve your health and longevity check out the sauna space website they have so much great information.  If you have been on the fence about putting a sauna in your home, use the 20%OFF link we have provided.  

There are so many reasons to sauna, and sauna space has innovated these aesthetically beautiful works of art to fit in our homes and our modern lives.

“Remotes" to add and delete that create a healthy home habitat

What the heck are you talking about?  What is a WIFI Remote you say?

Well leaving your WIFI on in your home all day could be compromising your health, especially while you are sleeping.  Wifi remotes and timers are very helpful tools to help keep your family’s habitat a healthy one. 


Using a WIFI remote can make the transition from a constant EMF environment to a healthy one easier than you think.  


We started using the remote to turn wifi off at night.  Now we even use them to turn on and off our dining room lights as well.  


*Side note: Our lights are all red light, because we are weird, yes and we have replaced all our regular lights with red bulbs.  We don’t do anything half-ass I guess. Creating a healthy habitat is very important to us.  So we use a Gembared light (Discount Code SLEEP) in our dining room and living room and use one of our remotes to turn on and off the light conveniently. We tack the remote to the wall with 3M command strips. 


THREE MAJOR CHANGES WE MADE: 


  • Eliminated EMF exposure in our living/ sleeping habitat
  • Created a healing light environment
  • Disconnected from anything that doesn’t align with our spirit/Higher self

DO’s


DO- use a WIFI Remote (Click here) to turn OFF WIFI every night.  You can get one for free on us at Primalhacker.com/store.  We lowered the price of these remotes just so everyone can get one. We are selling them for the exact cost we pay for them and shipping them to everyone for free. 


DO- Ditch TV Remotes... and TV altogether.  TV is a way people manipulate and enact mind controls without you knowing.   Find alternative sources of information, podcasts, underground sources, read more!  TV See our blog post about why we are boycotting all things Hollywood and Disney and you will learn why. 

eye in the tv 

This photo says it all. The image is Roger Waters (Pink Floyd) album cover based on Neil Postman’s “Amusing ourselves to Death” book. “Originally published in 1985, Neil Postman's groundbreaking polemic about the corrosive effects of television on our politics and public discourse has been hailed as a twenty-first-century book published in the twentieth century”.  Something to think about?  


We also do not give our children access to video games and we talk to them about violence and how our world is a place for peace.  There are dark forces that want you to think otherwise. We recommend reading to them books how to uplift your spirit. “The flower of life” is one of our homeschool textbooks.  


DO - Working REMOTELY can be a really good thing.  We do it all day everyday, why? Because we get to control our environment.  At Primalhacker we are the Environmental/habitat Health and wellness gurus. The junk light and high EMF environment is most corporate offices, schools and small businesses are off the charts.  The high flicker fluorescent lights and the shower of EMF (wifi, computers, cellphones…) DO NOT CREATE A healthy habitat for a human.  We are better off being able to control home based working spaces. Think about the school environment we put our kids in….yikes, its bad folks, like wifi routers in every room? Why?  


Irony 101: Why don’t schools know this stuff when we send our kids there to “Learn?” Junk light and high EMFs, this is not a healthy environment that encourage learning from a biological standpoint.  


DO- Consider Remote viewing perspectives.  Conspiracy crew, you'll love this! if you don’t already know.  Check out Allgire and his drawings.  


Remote viewing is another angle to information if you haven’t heard of it.


  “A remote viewer is able to gain information about faraway, unseen people, events or locations that are unknown to them. They can witness events they aren’t present for; hear conversations between people out of earshot; and visit locations they’ve never been to. By sending their mind rather than their body to see and feel exactly what is happening, they can report findings back to others.”

https://www.psychicgurus.org/how-to-remote-view/ 


Do- work REMOTE from sunnier locations.  For folks in the northern countries and northern states.  If you can work remotely from southern climates during the winter months can boost your immune system.  Dr Jack Kruse recommends this prescription: Taking 2 trips per year during the winter to the latitude as close to the equator as possible for 2-3 days in the sun.  This will build your Vitamin D stores for up to 4-6 weeks. This can help you get through until spring when the UV is strong enough for us to actually begin to make Vitamin D again.   It's a much healthier alternative to prescription meds (antidepressants).

Traveling also let’s you gain broader perspectives.  


DONT’S


DON’T-forget to turn off WIFI at night, this is the time your body needs for restoration.  NEVER SLEEP WITH WIFI ON!


DON’T- Waste your life being programmed by mainstream media and TV.  Find alternative sources of information, know your sources, consider underground news or remote viewing?  Don’t give your family access to violence on TV or video games. There is no place for violence in our world.  Boycott anything violent, Hollywood and DIsney for sure! More on Disney.


DON’T -Forget to take sunshine & movement breaks throughout the day when working Remotely from home or Remote away from home. 


DON’T - Use a Smart remote, or anything Labeled “Smart” in your home.  It will literally make you dumb. All the smart products are meant to surveil you and your family making you an easy marketing target.  


DON’T- Trust most things  you’ve ever been taught in school, question everything!  Find ways to uplift your spirit/higher self. You know the answers, you know more than you think.  



We love sharing everything we are learning with you.  Please share, like, comment. Let us know anything else you are curious about. 


Hope your days are filled with miracles.


Peace and love

Mel Gibson: Hollywood Is NOT What You Think

You wanted more conspiracy theory?  You got it!


After learning so much about what happens in the world. 


We, THADDEUS AND TOMORROW AT PRIMALHACKER.  Have decided to BOYCOTTt ALL THINGS HOLLYWOOD AND DISNEY.  Now that the google veil has been lifted search it up yourself. Here is a link for the movie that explains a lot of what we are talking about here, and solidifies our decision. 


Here’s why


Take a look at these photos and see for yourself. This is not OK, These people are NOT COOL.

 

Did you know Walt Disney, a 33rd level mason, obtained the Florida Disney property thanks to the CIA

There are dark forces in this world and we have all been blinded and mind controlled.  

 After studying many books on spirit and “TRUTH TALK” we are going to Seek all things LIGHT AND LOVE and keep a clean visual/audio Environment.  


We always encourage everyone to do their own research.  


To better protect our family and our SPIRIT, we are dedicated to raise our vibration, that also means our visual and audio ENVIRONMENT as they have been hacked and manipulated by the Producers!  You are going to be hearing a lot more about ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH from us.    


Health isn’t just what you hear about nutrition and movement.  It’s the totality of all the information your mind is (biological supercomputer) is constantly decoding.  Every moment there are 40 million frequencies your mind is picking up, the mind can only decode 11 million of them.  Movie makers know this. David Icke Explains this in his book “Everything you need to know but have never been told.”   


“Hollywood is a global programming operation and has been used since its inception to mass download perceptions of people, world events and history that suits the prevailing order.  Part of this is the technique known as preemptive programming where you employ futuristic storylines and images to make the subconscious familiar with them. Nearly all the movies involve expteme violence and nearly all are shot in semi-darkness or with a dark tinge to the picture as with the occult programming.  


"Many  actors in Hollywood, singers and other entertainers are under trauma-based mind control to serve the mass perception -programming agenda”  Pg 235 -Icke


Cathy O'Brien or Cathleen Ann O'Brien is an American author and speaker who claims to be a victim of a government mind control program called Project Monarch which she alleges was part of the CIA's Project MKUltra  Here is another statement from her husband, Mark.  


Mark always said, “You have to know where you’ve been to know where you’re going.” This statement is so profoundly true that Deep State/New World Order globalists attempted to control our future by strategically rewriting history in our education system, tearing down our sacred monuments, and manipulating our knowledge base through controlled media’s fake news.”  


There are sooooo many more reasons to boycott.  As parents we have been talking to our kids for years and years about violence in movies and TV.  It’s so embedded into the fabric of our society and that’s not normal or is it OK!  

Try on this opener to the Golden Globes this year.. MAJOR truth drop

among the many truthdrops in his speech to Hollywood "In this room are some of the most important TV and film executives in the world. People from every background. They all have one thing in common: They're all terrified of Ronan Farrow. He's coming for ya. Talking of all you perverts, it was a big year for pedophile movies"

Here is a list of DO’s and Don’ts when it comes to Your Family's Environmental Health



Do watch movies that lift the spirit, GAIA TV, Documentaries where you increase your knowledge base and teach you how to do things.

Research the producer of the film, see who behind the programming you are about to bring into your world of perception & environment.  


Don’t watch violent movies, never ever watch horror movies or anything “Hollywood” produced.  Including Disney. He was a 33 ranking freemason with satanic roots yikes! Look up the black pope see for yourself.  


Do talk/teach your children & family about violence in the media, movies, and video games.  Explain to them that dark forces want to bring darkness/chaos and stress into your homes through these channels.  Why is that ok? What can you do to minimize violence in your own home starting with YOU?  


Don’t give your children access to violent games at any age.  Access is the key word here. If you have it in your home they will play it.  If you get rid of it they may be able to go to the friends house, but you will cut that time in half starting with your home.  Talk to friends' parents about getting rid of the violence plan. Just planting seeds. Creating an atmosphere of sacred peaceful space is a great start.  


Do REPLACE TV WITH NATURE cleanse your spirit with a forest bath or walk in nature everyday.  If you do this, kids will follow. Make it a priority and a habit.  

Read more books, although be weary of history books.  They were only written by the victors and white men. They need to be rewritten.  Zinn’s book “People’s History of the United States” is a good place to start, a perspective from minorities and women/children.  We will be making a list of books we recommend to UPGRADE YOUR SPIRIT as well.  


Don’t watch TV daily or the mainstream media news!  *We only have one (TV) in our home that our kids have access to.  We don’t ever PAY for cable. They can only use it sparingly with our permission for programs that lift and enlighten.  

Find news that isn't owned by the CIA or one of only 6 mega corporations.

Find alternative sources of information or stay away from it altogether.  Take a deep Spirit cleanse.  


Do Pass on this information to all your friends and family.  Talk openly about it. Share and teach your kids about all of this.  If anyone rejects its….its just a natural progression of humans, called cognitive dissonance.   This occurs when a person holds two or more contradictory beliefs, ideas, or values, or participates in an action that goes against one of these three, and experiences psychological stress because of that.  


Don’t sit inside and waste your life watching “MIND CONTROL” TV.  Know your sources. Research yourself. 


Here is another quote from David Icke.


“Our entire media outlets in the United States are owned by just 6 corporations, News Corp, Viacom, Time Warner, Disney, CBS Corp and NBC.  Go deep enough in the Web and all 6 will be controlled by the same hidden network. A tiny number of Web-connected people own the global media, “entertainment’ industry- INCLUDING HOLLYWOOD, and the Internet.  You see different television and radio channels, newspapers and magazines on every subject you can imagine and there seems to be endless choice from apparently independent sources; but research into how few ultimately own them all and you will be shocked.  Icke has exposed more about this in his two books “HUMAN RACE GET OFF YOUR KNEES and THE PERCEPTION DECEPTION.   


In conclusion, Primalhacker will not be supporting anything produced by “Hollywood” or Disney or any other sources unless we research the producer and know where our information is sourced.  It’s almost like how we talk about nutrition, eat seasonal, locally sourced. Begin by sourcing your ENVIRONMENT! Mostly organic, local high spirit sourced information is the new diet fad yall. 


With Peace LIGHT AND LOVE

WiFi is Destroying Your Sleep and How to Fix it

Let’s face it, sleep is absolutely critical.

If you’re reading this email you’ll also be immersed in media fear and controversy over the global pandemic situation.

Well, guess what?

Regardless of whether you think the pandemic will affect you, we absolutely know that sleep boost immunity better than any drug or supplement.

Sleep boosts immunity and protects you from disease. In addition, ensuring your body is maximally set into a system of repair instead of break down is critical, especially in this time of chaos.

But WAIT.. do you have your Wifi on all night while you sleep?

This is a big problem. You see, we pretty much know that wifi is damaging to our bodies and when we sleep can interfere with the benefits of sleep.

You don’t really believe that Wifi is damaging?

Well, out of the billions of frequencies, why did they choose 2.4GHz for wifi?

It just so happens that this frequency interacts with water in our body and causes our cells to dehydrate.

Ok, so maybe you don’t understand that.

Let’s make it a little clearer.  Go to your WiFi router and look at what frequency it broadcasts on. You can do this online too.. just look it up. It’s 2.4 – 2.45GHz.  Some routers will also run off 5GHz. That’s not 5G as in the new tech role out, but 5GHz which is a different thing completely.

OK, now I want you to go look at your microwave oven. Or look this up online for all those of you smart people who have no microwave. What frequency does your microwave oven use?

Unbelievably it’s 2.4 GHz!!!!!

Wait, what?

The microwave oven, that heats up your food, and that you would NEVER stick your head inside of and turn on uses the EXACT same frequency as your WiFi router spreading invisible waves throughout your entire house 24/7.

This sure seems odd to me.

Microwaves use the exact frequency that maximally affects water to be efficient cookers.

And for some reason the wireless companies chose this same frequency to put in your router. Weird, right?

What happens when you put a steak in the microwave and turn it on?

It gets dehydrated right?

What happens to your cells in your body all day long when you bathe in wifi microwaves of the exact same frequency as the microwave oven?


In addition, Wifi causes oxidative damage in our cells. All night long for those of you leaving wifi on all night.

Here’s just sample of some studies, because everyone always asks, “where’s the study for that?”  - you know, we don’t always need studies to prove something is harming you and frankly if the wireless companies and mind control organizations think microwaves are the perfect interface for human control, then the data showing harm will be pretty sparse.

Anyway

“Melatonin has been considered a potent antioxidant that detoxifies a variety of reactive oxygen species in many pathophysiological states of eye. The present study was designed to determine the effects of Wi-Fi exposure on the lens oxidant, antioxidant redox systems, as well as the possible protective effects of melatonin on the lens injury induced by electromagnetic radiation (EMR).” Indian Journal of Opthamalogy Effects of melatonin on Wi-Fi-induced oxidative stress in lens of rats

 

“There are poor oxidative toxic effects of one hour of Wi-Fi exposure on the lens in the animals. However, melatonin supplementation in the lens seems to have protective effects “ – Huh…. Wifi harms our eyes.. that doesn’t sound good.

 

And this article

“Even a phone set to the lowest level of light could still cause the same suppression of melatonin as a fully lit phone. That’s because the reduced creation of melatonin before bed might actually be caused by the electromagnetic frequency being given off from your cellphone as it receives and emits information through a 4G network or wifi. Your brain mistakes this information for light, which causes your brain to reduce the levels of melatonin it creates.” - Pineal melatonin level disruption in humans due to electromagnetic fields

 

Sleep affects immune system.

And finally this study:
Sleep and the circadian system exert a strong regulatory influence on immune functions.”

 

Ok, so turn your darn WiFi off every single night.. because you want a strong immune system and you want good sleep.

About 5 years ago I came out with this video on my old YouTube channel. It was a really simple video about turning off your wifi at night with a remote control. It got OVER 200,000 views!!! Wow!! This was WOO WOO science back then..

There were A LOT of people interested in turning off WIFI.. I even got hundreds of comments. And honestly, I never read any of them because I changed over to the Primalhacker Youtube channel and never looked back at my old channel…oops.

Well, I wanted to make wifi remotes cheaper for everyone.

You can buy a remote on Amazon and that’s been my advice for years.

However, I went out and sourced some remotes and I’m offering them on my website now.  IN this time of chaos, I want everyone to turn off their WiFi every single night.

Here’s what you can do

Plug your wifi router into THIS remote control system. Place the remote on your bed on stairway or hallway and turn off the wifi when you go to sleep with the remote. Turn it back on when you wake up. Super Simple!!

BTW – we decided to make these available as cheap as we possible could!!

Right now we have made these essentially free if you pay shipping and handling!!  That’s $11 for the remote control including shipping (US continental only) Until we run out. $11 is what I paid for these myself, so I’m actually losing the shipping to you and the shipping I paid to have them originally shipped to me. I think it’s too important right now to let everyone microwave themselves…

Take advantage of this and get your “free” wifi remote control click RIGHT
