Do Nootropics Work?

WHY YOU SHOULD READ THIS 

Nootropics work. They have a long history of use. In the future, we believe nootropics will be like coffee. Everyone will be using them. Just like coffee, nootropics affect people differently.  We think if you experiment and find the right nootropic for you, it can be life changing. Literally. We're not kidding. We're kicking off this series with a little intro to Nootropics. Here goes...

HISTORY OF NOOTROPICS

586 BC- Patna, India – Alone in the wilderness, a healer bends down in front of an herb with white flowers covering it to harvest some of the precious medicine called bacopa monnieri. The old man then places it into his basket on top of some roots called ashwagandha and starts to walk home to prepare the medicine for improving people’s memory and overall cognitive function.

347 BC- Chengzhou, China- King Xian of Zhou smiles inwardly at the earthy taste of his green tea infused with ginko biloba that he drinks every morning to keep him focused yet calm and his mind sharp to better manage his kingdom.

793 AD- Lindisfarne, Northumbria- As the Vikings prepare to beach their longships and begin for their raid on the monastery, a few of the men can be seen chewing on a root of the adaptogenic herb rhodiola rosea to increase their endurance, strength and boost their ability to focus on the approaching battle.

2017- Silicon Valley- Inside a dimly lit office, in the middle of the night, a lone soul types away at his keyboard. This entrepreneur has been working all night trying to complete a project that will take his software company to the next level. He has been awake for over 24 hours using modafinil to keep him awake and focused and aniracetam to keep his cognitive abilities operating at peak levels.

It is hard to say exactly how long nootropics have actually been in use.  We do have accounts that they have been used in some form or another since the beginning of modern civilization.  People have been using caffeine, herbs, and mushrooms to affect their cognitive abilities and mood for a very long time.  The more recent compounds like piracetam, which was the first in the family of racetams, was first created in 1964, and became available in the early 1970’s.  Other things like modafinil and andrafinil were first created back in the 1960’s but did not start to be used as nootropics until the 1990’s.

We can say that for thousands of years, humans have been using plants, mushrooms and other substances to improve the functioning of their body and mind. I think this alone makes a very strong case for what we today call nootropics.

Welcome to the ancient and also cutting edge of nootropics!

WHAT ARE NOOTROPICS?

Nootropics (/noʊ.əˈtrɒpɨks/ noh-ə-trop-iks)—also called smart drugs, memory enhancers, neuro enhancers, cognitive enhancers, and intelligence enhancers-are drugs, supplements, nutraceuticals, and functional foods that improve one or more aspects of mental function.  Specific effects can include improvements to working memory, motivation, or attention.  The word nootropic was coined in 1972 by a Romanian psychologist and chemist, Corneilu E. Giurgea, from the Greek words νους nous, or “mind”, and τρέπειν trepein meaning to bend or turn.[1]  To hear it pronounced, click here.  According to Dr. Giurgea, nootropics should have the following characteristics:

  • Little to no side effects and low toxicity
  • Enhance learning and memory
  • Protect the brain against physical and chemical injuries
  • Enhance resistance to conditions that disrupt learner behaviors
  • Nootropics run the spectrum from substances most of us use every day to readily available supplements to readily available supplements to harder to obtain supplements and even prescription and illegal drugs.

DO NOOTROPICS WORK?

Absolutely!

Many Nootropics have been used safely and effectively for thousands of years.

It is our experience talking with many people who have used nootropics and our own experience using these that they absolutely work!

Some people are quite skeptical when they are first introduced to nootropics.  Not all nootropics will work for everyone, and some lose their effect over time if they are used continuously or often. Just like 200mg of Tylenol doesn’t work for everyone and not every prescription will work for you, nootropics are the same way.

You may have to experiment and try different supplements and different combinations to find what works best for you.

You also may not feel the effects right away.  Some nootropics take four hours to begin working while others may take a week or two to start having noticeable effects because they have to build up in your body.  I’m not saying that they will do things like in the movie and tv show Limitless or like in the movie Lucy.  That is science fiction and to my knowledge there doesn’t exist anything that even approaches that level.  They will however have noticeable effects on your memory, attention, alertness, focus, mood and anxiety.

I have been experimenting with them for a few years now and can undoubtedly say they work.

If you want a little extra boost getting to work writing a chapter in your book, creating an important presentation, getting on stage in front of 100s of people, cranking out a blog post, rapidly learning a new skill, or just having an extra edge on your work colleagues then you might want to explore nootropics a bit further.

HOW DO NOOTROPICS WORK?

In layman’s terms, they work by changing the levels of certain chemicals in the brain and also the way those chemicals interact with each other, modulating neuronal metabolism, cerebral oxygenation, and neurotransmitter availability.  The exact method of effect will depend on the specific nootropic.

The brain is filled with neurotransmitters.  They are responsible for focus, memory, learning, mood, anxiety, motivation, appetite, pleasure, pain, libido, just to name a few.  Brain chemistry is very complex and we are only starting to scratch the surface of how it actually works.  We do know, however, that we can change the amount of neurotransmitters in the brain, and that will lead to changes in the way feel, think and act.

WHAT ARE THE RISKS INVOLVED WITH NOOTROPICS?

Most nootropics are known to be very safe. Many are considered supplements, and some are even everyday foods for most of us that have been used for millennia (like the caffeine in coffee and L-theanine in tea). Others are prescription drugs in some countries but not in Canada or the US and can be purchased over the counter. Other smart drugs may be prescription based or have addictive or other qualities that the user must know about and understand before deciding whether or not to try out. And finally, there is a class of nootropics considered illegal substances, at least in the US.

Everyone’s body and brain is different, so there is no guarantee that you won’t have an adverse reaction to a compound, even if other people have reported no problems.

Chances of an adverse reaction can increase when mixing different compounds together in what is called a “stack” (more on stacks later).  The risk of most normal stacks is very slim.

The possibility of addiction is only a concern when using specific stimulant type compounds, but a very large body of research on the therapeutic use of the “more addictive” psychostimulants indicate that addiction is fairly rare in therapeutic doses.

Some nootropics may have a negative effect on other supplements or prescription drugs.  If you aren’t sure, do your research and speak to your preferred health advisor.

It is not advisable for children or young adults to use nootropics, especially the chemical and lab manufactured ones.  Our brains are not fully developed until around the age of 25, so the use of nootropics may have a negative impact on the complete development of someone’s brain.  It is much more important to make sure you are getting adequate sleep, exercise and a nutrient dense diet.  That alone will help you much more than nootropics.

WHO USES NOOTROPICS AND WHY?

People from all walks of life use nootropics today.  From top level CEOS, professional athletes, college students, all the way down to the normal person just wanting a little edge.  Other people that are showing signs of cognitive decline like Alzheimer’s and dementia use them to try to slow or reverse the process. Some people that have anxiety or mood disorders also use them to help lessen some of these symptoms. Here is a short list of things people use them for:

  • Increase attention focus, concentration, and alertness
  • Improve memory, learning, mood and overall cognitive function
  • Treat age-related cognitive decline, brain injuries, and brain fog
  • Increase creativity, logical thinking and problem solving

HOW TO USE NOOTROPICS

Before you start using any supplement, you need to know how to make sure it’s working for you. This means getting a baseline level before you start taking them and then tracking the effects regularly.

Everyone’s body chemistry is different. This is especially important with nootropics. You may not notice that a certain nootropic is working, even though it may be having a very strong effect on your cognitive function.

A lot of people have a hard time with nootropics because they don’t pay enough attention. Some people have a hard time knowing what works and what doesn’t. That’s why some of the stacks are really problematic. Nobody knows what exactly in the blend is causing them to have positive results.

What works well for me may not work as well for you.  Things that have no effect on me may be the thing that really gets your brain humming at high speed.

One reason for this is that our brains all produce different levels of certain neurotransmitters. For example- I use a choline source with all of my stacks because it helps to tie them all together and increases the amount of acetylcholine that my brain produces.  One of my good friends only supplements with a choline source a few times a week because if he uses it every day, he gets a slight headache and tension in his jaw.  This is because he is acetylcholine dominant.  His brain produces quite a bit of acetylcholine so that when he supplements with it, it becomes too much for him and can have some side effects.

Tracking

This is why it is so important to track your usage and the effect of the things you are trying.

Here are some things that you can use.

Journaling is a good way to track changes in your physical, mental and emotional states. Its also great to have a reference to look back at.

Track My Stack- This a tool I use to track what I am taking on which days. I find this very effective at comparing data on certain days that I felt better or worse than normal. It also has a journal function to record how you are feeling each day. You can also see what is working well for other people.

Cambridge Brain Sciences & Quantified Mind –These are two resources to track the actual cognitive effects you are experiencing. You can track many different aspects of cognitive function with these like:

  • Reaction Time
  • Verbal Learning
  • Visual Perception
  • Memory
  • Reasoning
  • Attention
  • Many More

Mercury App- You can use this to track how you are feeling and your emotions. This is especially important because many of the neurotransmitters affected by nootropics are also related to your mood and emotions.

Stay Away From Addictive Substances

Some nootropics are very powerful.

The most important thing that I can say here is to steer clear of Adderall and any ADHD type pharmaceuticals.

Adderal is the go-to choice for a lot of students cramming for a test. The problem with this is that it only gives you a perceived effect of cognitive enhancement. You only think you are doing better, but it actually can hurt your cognitive performance. A study from the University of Pennsylvania had this to say:

“The research team tested 47 subjects, all in their twenties, all without a diagnosis of ADHD, on a variety of cognitive functions, from working memory — how much information they could keep in mind and manipulate — to raw intelligence, to memories for specific events and faces. Each subject was tested both while on Adderall and on a placebo; in each condition, the subjects didn’t know which kind of pill they were receiving."

The researchers did come up with one significant finding. The last question they asked their subjects was: “How and how much did the pill influence your performance on today’s tests?” Those subjects who had been given Adderall were significantly more likely to report that the pill had caused them to do a better job on the tasks they’d been given, even though their performance did not show an improvement over that of those who had taken the placebo.”

It can also be extremely addictive.

Other stimulants like caffeine can have some negative effects as well. The best way I have found to lower the chances of experiencing these are to cycle on and off. The way I do it is to drink caffeinated coffee for 2 or 3 days, then go with decaf for a day.

Some of the popular nootropics that should be cycled because of either physical and mental attachment or tolerance build up are:

  • Caffeine
  • Rhodiola Rosea
  • Phenibut
  • Phenylpiracetam

DIFFERENT TYPES OF NOOTROPICS

NATURAL NOOTROPICS - PLANTS FOR YOUR BRAIN

1442 AD- Cusco, Peru- A shaman awakens with all of the glory of the rising sun and sets out to start his day. Part of his morning ritual after meeting Inti (the sun god) is to prepare his morning tea composed of maca root and yerba mate. This helps him to keep his energy up throughout the day and also to make sure he is thinking clearly as he guides people through the journey of life.

236 AD- Kyoto, Japan- A young man bends down to look at something growing from the bottom of a fallen tree. It’s a mushroom of some sort with white stringy hairs coming off of it. He smiles with delight as he harvests the yamabushitake, otherwise known as the lion’s mane mushroom. As he heads home he smiles as he knows that it will help to heal his mother’s cognitive impairments as a result of a fall she took last month.

Humans have most likely been using plants to enhance and treat problems with their brains since we emerged from the stone age. We as a species have come a long way since the days of trying different combinations of plants to decipher their positive qualities. Whether you look at more recent scientific studies or at ancient texts of Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine we can see that we have been studying these plants for thousands of years and learn more every year.

Here are some of the most popular natural nootropics people use in an attempt to either optimize their brain function or to try to overcome some type of cognitive issue. Most of these plants are adaptogenic which help the body adapt to stress by improving the health of your adrenal glands and help to normalize our bodily processes.

Before you start reading this, ask yourself what you are trying to gain by taking nootropics. Is it more focus, better memory or are you trying to compensate for some type of cognitive decline caused by an injury, old age or just an ongoing issue you had had with cognitive function.

This will make it easier to skim through the information and find what we think we will be of most benefit to you. Just remember, WE ARE NOT doctors. WE ARE BIOHACKERS. These are things that have been shown by either scientific studies, citizen scientists or by our own experiments to have very positive effects on cognitive function.

Happy brain hacking. 

mucuna nootropics

Mucuna Pruriens

Cognitive Benefits of Mucuna

  • Neuroprotective properties [r]
  • Reduces stress [r]
  • Helps to regulate hormone levels [r]
  • May help those suffering from Parkinson’s disease [r] [r]

Mucuna is a climbing shrub that is native to tropical regions of African and Asia. It is a legume that has a wide range of medicinal uses. Traditionally used in Ayurvedic medicine, traditional Chinese medicine and also in tribal cultures throughout Africa, mucuna can have many benefits to help regulate neurotransmitters in the brain as well as many other things.

Many of the nootropic properties of mucuna are because it is a natural source of L-DOPA which is an amino acid that converts in to dopamine. Dopamine is one of the “feel good” chemicals in the brain which can be taxed by a number of contributing factors like stress, environmental toxins and drugs.

It is also a source of serotonin and 5-HTP which are very important to our brains.

It has even been shown that it may be more helpful than L-DOPA drugs for people suffering from Parkinson’s disease.

Additional Benefits of Mucuna

  • Increased fertility in men 
  • Increase growth hormone [r]
  • Supports kidney and adrenal health
  • Regulate blood sugar [r]
  • Aphrodisiac [r] [r]

Mucuna Dosage

The dosage of mucuna all depends on the strength of the extract. Our favorite nootropic stack, Qualia, for example, uses an extract which is 98% L-Dopa and the dose is 100mg. On the other hand, Lost Empire Herbs’ extract is 15.76% L-Dopa and their recommended dosage is 1 gram or ¼ teaspoon.

Side Effects of Mucuna

Mucuna is very low in known side effects but there are some situations where people should be careful.

  • Can lower blood pressure so don’t use in conjunction with blood thinners
  • Because of the L-Dopa, be careful or avoid using with anti-anxiety or anti-depressant medication
  • Like most nootropics I recommend cycling on and off.

My Experience with Mucuna

I have used mucuna on and off for a few years now. I really enjoy the stress-reducing qualities of it. I have also started to add it to my preworkout shake and have noticed that I see to get a little extra boost when trying to get that last rep in.

Displaying bacopa nootropics.jpg

Bacopa Monnieri

Cognitive Benefits of Bacopa

  • Improves memory recall [r]
  • Reduces stress and anxiety. [r]
  • Neuroprotective, protects against oxidative damage and mineral buildup [r]
  • Could improve symptoms associated with dementia, Parkinson’s disease and epilepsy [r]
  • Increases the number of certain neurotransmitters like acetylcholine, dopamine and serotonin [r]
  • Increases blood flow to the brain which leads to increased oxygen, fuel, nutrients and helps to remove toxins. May even lower the chances of a stroke. [r]
  • Adaptogenic [r]

Bacopa is one of the most thoroughly studied and tested natural nootropic.  It is also one of the safest and most effective natural memory enhancers.  It has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries as a memory booster and stress relieving herb.

Bacopa Dosage

Bacopa can be purchased in capsules or as powder.  Capsules are the easiest way to take bacopa because you don’t have to worry about measuring your dose.  If you do decide to buy it in powder form, you can make your own capsules or just add it to a smoothie or coffee. The standard dose depends on the concentration of your supplement.

Standard dose depends on the concentration:

50% bacosides-300mg

20% bacosides-750mg

Bacopa Side Effects

Side effects are very rare but could include nausea and fatigue.

Additional Benefits of Bacopa

  • Reduced sensitivity to pain and anti-inflammatory [r]
  • Protection against stomach ulcers [r]
  • Powerful antioxidant properties [r]

My Experience with Bacopa

Along with a higher pain threshold, I’ve noticed a greater tolerance to the cold while using bacopa. I haven’t seen any studies on this but have noticed it multiple times myself. I also notice a large increase in verbal recall while I am speaking in front of a crowd. This may also have something to do with the stress reducing properties.

Displaying lions mane nootropics.jpg

Lion’s Mane – Hericium Erinaceus

Cognitive Benefits of Lion’s Mane

  • Reduces anxiety, stress and has anti-depressant properties [r]
  • Stimulates myelination (production of the myelin sheath) [r]
  • Helps repair the brain from physical damage [r] [r] [r]
  • Neuroprotective and increases nerve growth factors [r]
  • May slow or help prevent Alzheimer’s, dementia and age-related cognitive decline [r]

Lion’s mane is an edible mushroom traditionally used in Chinese and Japanese medicine to improve brain function and support immune system function. It was also used as a meat replacement to help people eat less meat. It gets its name from the stringy texture that resembles the mane of a lion.

Lion’s Mane Dosage

Up to 3 times daily

Extract at a strength of 30% polysaccharide

If using raw powder, I use up to a tablespoon.

Lion’s Mane Side Effects

No known side effects.

Additional Benefits of Lion’s Mane

  • Boosts immune system
  • Anti-fatigue [r]
  • 20% protein by volume
  • Aids in healing when applied topically [r]
  • Anti-inflammatory [r]
  • May inhibit weight gain [r]

My Experience with Lion’s Mane

Lion’s mane is one of my favorite nootropics of all time. I started taking it a few years ago to fix some of the damage caused by multiple concussions that I had sustained throughout my life. I have found that not only has it helped to repair my brain and allow me to think better, it has increased my ability to pull those words and thoughts out of my head that used to seem to be right on the tip of my tongue but more often than not eluded me. It has been especially useful during writing sessions by helping me really get what’s on my mind out on to the paper. I take this almost every day by adding it to my coffee or taking it in a capsule. You can also cook it up. Tastes a little like steak.

Displaying coffee caffeine nootropics.jpgCaffeine

Nootropic Benefits of Caffeine

  • Increases alertness [r]
  • Improves concentration [r]
  • Decreases fatigue [r]
  • Boosts mood [r]
  • Improves short-term memory [r]
  • Improves athletic performance [r]

Around 90% of the world’s population uses some sort of caffeine whether it’s from coffee, tea, soda or in supplements. It is definitely the world’s favorite and most used nootropic. It may be the longest used one as well. I prefer my caffeine in coffee or tea. Check out why My Coffee Is Better Than Yours

Caffeine Dosage

  • 50mg caffeine anhydrous
  • 100mg caffeine citrate

If you decide to get you caffeine from supplement form instead of from coffee or tea, you will mainly find it in the two forms listed above. Caffeine anhydrous is the standard form. The other form, caffeine citrate takes effect much faster but requires a higher dosage.

Caffeine Side Effects

  • Anxiety
  • Nausea
  • Increased blood pressure

A lot of your risks of these side effects are associated with genetics. If you do experience some of these, don’t worry. There is a great way to lessen some of the negative effects. You’ll find out what that is with the next nootropic we are featuring.

Additional Benefits of Caffeine

  • Improves athletic performance [r]
  • Decrease negative side effects of sleep deprivation [r]
  • Boosts thermogenesis which can help you lose weight

My Experience with Caffeine

I love my morning coffee. If you want to know why, check out My Coffee is Better Than Yours I drink coffee most days of the week but I am cautious to cycle off of it every once in a while to give my adrenals a break and with any stimulant to make sure that I do not become addicted.

Displaying green tea l-theanine nootropics.jpg

L-Theanine

Nootropic Benefits of L-Theanine

  • Counteracts negative effects of caffeine [r]
  • Works synergistically to boost mood and cognitive performance [r] 
  • Reduces physical and mental stress [r]
  • Helps you relax and enjoy a more restful sleep [r]
  • Reduces anxiety 
  • Enhances attention and focus 
  • Improves memory 

L-theanine is the main psychoactive compound found in green tea. It wasn’t discovered as a compound until 1949 even though people have known about the beneficial properties of it for thousands of years.

L-Theanine Dosage

Standard dose is 100-200mg up to twice daily.

L-Theanine Side Effects

No known side effects unless taken in very large amounts.

Additional Benefits of L-Theanine

  • Boosts’s the body’s immune response to infection [r]
  • Promotes healthy blood pressure levels [r]

My Experience With L-Theanine

L-theanine and caffeine are one of my favorite combinations for a relaxed focus. If I’m reading to listening to something that I am really trying to absorb and there are distractions around it’s much easier to tune out those distractions. Having 4 young boy’s has made distractions a HUGE part of every day so anything that helps with that is great.

It also helps to keep me present and more engaged when I’m just hanging out with the family or playing with the kids. Not distracted thinking about work that I need to get done or any of life’s other stresses.

rhodiola nootropics

Rhodiola Rosea

Nootropic Benefits of Rhodiola

  • Helps reduce anxiety
  • Combats mental fatigue stress and anxiety [r] [r]
  • Short-term memory improvements and concentration [r]
  • Increased mental work capacity [r]
  • Improves depression [r]
  • Improves visual reaction time

 

Rhodiola Dosage

Using a standardized dose of 2-3% rosavin and .8-1% salidroside, the low end of dosage is around 50mg as a preventative for fatigue. To see more pronounced effects, a dosage of 288-680mg is used.

Rhodiola Side Effects

While side effects are rare, there are a few things to watch out for. The largest issue I have found with using Rhodiola is that it is a mild stimulant so if taken later in the day it may have negatively effect the quality of your sleep. You can also develop a tolerance to rhodiola, so cycling is highly recommended. Other potential side effects include:

  • Dizziness
  • Dry mouth

Additional Benefits of Rhodiola

  • Helps combat physical fatigue [r]
  • Anti-aging benefits and helps promote longevity [r]

My Experience with Rhodiola

I have found this great to use when I really need to concentrate on finishing a project that requires long periods of acute focus. It gives me a very calm focus to stay on task.

Because of the mild stimulant effect of Rhodiola, I have found it of great use during those times that I cycle off of caffeine. I usually do this every month or 2 for about a week and use Rhodiola for the first few days until my body adjusts to it.

I also use this as a pre-workout and during times that I know, I will need an extra boost to endurance and to combat fatigue.

Stacks

A nootropic stack is a combination of supplements designed to synergistically create a specific effect that one supplement alone cannot perform.

Biohackers and experimenters from all over the world try out and share stack combinations with each other to improve the field of nootropics.

A common stack many people use is caffeine and L-theanine created most often by drinking a coffee and popping an L-theanine pill or drinking a coffee followed by a cup of green tea. This stack is said to reduce the jitteriness and intense high from coffee and provide a more mellow and relaxed focus.

There exist stacks for many brain states people wish to achieve such as stacks for creativity, sociability, recall, retention, stage performance, increased learning capacity, writing and more.

We’ll explore the world of stacks in future nootropic articles.

CONCLUSION 

I KNOW nootropics can change your life. It has for many people just like you (myself included). Research has indicated that these compounds are very powerful and they have been used since sometime in prehistory.

We will be looking at some of the more synthetic nootropics like racetams in a coming article.

You’re invited to take this journey into the world of nootropics with us.

“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

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

6 Nutrition Must-Do's To Combat Aging

Symptoms of aging creep up on us.d


  • By our mid 20’s, workout recovery slows down. 
  • In our 30’s, our skin develops fine lines while physical energy starts to noticeably decrease.
  • By our 40’s and 50’s, muscle definition fades, and the feeling of vitality often tanks.

As far as our diet, combating the aging process with 1 or 2 magic bullet ingredients won’t cut it. Legit anti-aging nutrition requires complex nutrition, because aging is a complex process. Comprehensive anti-aging benefits is what our friends at Neurohacker Collective designed their new Eternus formula for: 36 ingredients (many of them very hard to find), that work together to attack aging 6 different ways, with a mountain of research to back up the ingredients in it. 


So what are the 6 keys to slow down aging as much as possible? And how is the new Eternus formula designed to address all 6 needs? 

1) Promote A Fitter Mitochondrial Network

If your mitochondria don’t function properly, your cells will struggle to produce energy. With insufficient energy being produced, you’ll feel more tired and lethargic  [R].

And poor mitochondrial health doesn’t only cause physical sluggishness. It also is linked to brain fog and neurodegenerative diseases, while improving mitochondrial function may reverse these conditions [R, R, R].

The mitochondria also initiate the production of steroid hormones, including cortisol and all sex hormones. That’s why malfunctioning mitochondria can cause hormone imbalances [R].

Eternus has a multitude of ingredients with research correlating to various aspects of improved mitochondrial health and function, including resveratrol [R], lipoic acid [R], n-acetyl-L-cysteine [R], and Coq10 [R]. 

2) Boosts Production Of NAD+ & Optimize Your NAD+:  NADH Ratio

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is a coenzyme that consists of adenine and nicotinamide, and is found in all living cells.

NAD exists in two forms: NAD+ and NADH respectively. NADH contains 2 more electrons than NAD+.

Low NAD+ quickens aging. In mitochondria of young people, NADH can readily donate its electrons to generate NAD+. During the aging process, increased DNA damage reduces NAD+, leading to reduced SIRT1 activity and reduced mitochondrial function [R]. 

Supplementation with NAD+ intermediates, readily increases cellular and mitochondrial NAD+, and reverse many aging or disease processes associated with low NAD+ [R, R2]. There is strong evidence that B vitamin levels have direct correlations to NAD+ production [R], with niacinamide (B3) in particular showing a particularly strong correlation [R]. Eternus supplies a stack of B1, B2, B3, B5, B7, B9 and B12 vitamins in its formula. 

While boosting NAD+ is a useful strategy, it’s also important to increase the NAD+ : NADH ratio. Increasing the cellular consumption of NADH is an additional lever toward that end. Calorie restriction induces an enzyme called Nrf2, which is considered to be a master regulator of cellular defense; it’s responsible for many cellular protection processes and involved in mitochondrial biogenesis (i.e., building new mitochondria). 


A host of substances have evidence of boosting Nrf2 which are found in Eternus, such as R-Lipoic Acid [R], rosemary extract [R], french grapes extract [R] 

 

3) Elevate Your ATP Levels


Adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, is a cell’s “energy carrier” or “energy store” molecule. This is true of eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells, although the ATP production mechanism differs across the two types. ATP is the main source of energy for most cellular processes.

Low ATP levels are often found in people suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome [R], and even moderate depletions of ATP have been linked to sizable increases in oxidative stress [R], while higher ATP levels have been correlated to increases in muscle mass [R] and increased capacity during high intensity activities [R]. 

Many ingredients in Eternus have been associated to increasing ATP levels including CoQ10 [R], and Eternus contains elevATP® specifically for that purpose, which contains a combination of trace minerals from ancient peat, including ionized magnesium and apple polyphenols, which has been correlated to increased ATP output in clinical studies [R]. 

4) Increase Your Upregulation Of Sirtuins

Sirtuins are a family of proteins critical to healthy aging. The regulate cellular health by performing critical biologic functions such as DNA expression. 

When proteins are undergoing stress, acetyl groups are added to proteins as a response to changes induced by inflammation and oxidation.

Sirtuins remove these acetyl groups to keep the protein in service longer than usual, while simultaneously stabilizing the charge state of the carbon backbone in protein to resist any further changes in their shape. This allows your cellular proteins to live longer and you can save energy on other processes.

Sirtuins such as SIRT1 protects us from nitric oxide. When you have good SIRT1 levels and activity, nitric oxide will stimulate DNA repair genes (via deacetylation of FoxO1). Otherwise, nitric oxide will stimulate genes that will cause the cell to self-destruct (R).

Sirtuins play a major role in good sleep as well. SIRT1 regulates the strength (amplitude) and the duration of circadian gene expression in the retina by removing acetyl groups from key circadian clock regulators, such as BMAL1 and PER2.

Anything that increases NAD+, will increase SIRT1 activity.  So I won’t relist the ingredients in Eternus which have already been listed to that end, but additionally, there is evidence that SIRT1 and SIRT3 activity increases from supplementation with lipoic acid,also found in Eternus, appearing to do so directly [R]. 

5) Activate AMPK

AMPK  (5′ AMP-activated protein kinase) is an enzyme that plays a key role in energy balance. All creatures from yeast to humans have this enzyme (R).

AMPK can detect the level of energy (number of ATP molecules) in a cell and helps regulate responses when it gets too low or high.

AMPK is produced in a number of tissues, including the liver, brain, fat cells and muscle (R).

When cellular energy is low, AMPK is activated and targets a range of processes, the net response of which is an increase in energy production and a coordinated decrease in energy (ATP) usage (R).

AMPK also inhibits the production of fatty acids, cholesterol, and triglycerides, and instead stimulates fat breakdown (R).

A multitude of ingredients in Eternus have been correlated to increasing the activation of AMPK, including Carnitine [R], gynostemma [R], CoQ10 [R], and resveratrol [R]. 

6) Support Insulin Regulation

If you are insulin resistant, your brain will not get the message that insulin is trying hard to convey (that you have high levels of sugar in your bloodstream).

In this way, insulin resistance promotes hunger. You eat and insulin is released, but your body tells you to eat some more despite the ability of insulin to act as a satiety hormone. Hence why obesity is linked to brain insulin resistance [R].

When rats had their brain insulin receptors removed, they ate more, developed insulin resistance, and became obese [R]. There is a correlation between insulin resistance and fat accumulation in the liver [R].

Beyond a weight loss regimen and regular exercise, both of which can decrease insulin resistance, there are a number of supplement foods found in Eternus which can aid in this as well, such as magnesium [R], resveratrol [R], and lipoic acid [R].

10 Critical Work From Home Tips

How to Successfully Work from Home

Are you reading this during the “C” word virus psyop? Yes, all this is a psychological operation. It doesn’t mean it isn’t real, it means the solution to this problem is layers of control that will change our lives forever.  Just like the Patriot Act after Amerithrax changed the world with homeland security and surveillance works.

Anyway, most of you will now be working from home for a short time. I’ve been doing this for 11 years and will show you how to make it successful.

If you have a home office or work from home regularly, then listen up. I’ve got some critical tips to make you a successful remote worker!

I’ve been a remote worker for 11 years and have been through the hoops. I know what works!

I started out working at various corporate headquarters. In 11 years, I worked for P&G in Cincinnati, Atrix Labs in Fort Collins, Perrigo in Allegan, and Herman Miller in Holland. I worked in offices, labs, and manufacturing plants.

5 years into my career, I was living with a friend who worked from home. We were living in a house in Colorado and his boss lived in Florida. This was back in 2000. I had never heard of anyone working from home. From that time on, I wanted to do whatever it took to work from home.

He got to chill all day at home, modify his environment for optimal health, and have far less stress.

Immediately I saw the benefits:

  • Ability to Absolutely CONTROL my environment for health and comfort
  • Ability to stay away from Office Politics
  • No exposure to office viruses
  • No Commute
  • No Eating out, make meals at home
  • Ultimate Primalhacked work environment
  • Let the dog out at lunch
  • Go for a walk around the neighborhood at lunch
  • Home earlier (no commute) to see the kids after school
  • Money saved on lunches and commuting
  • Wear whatever you want ($ saved on work clothes)
  • Get more sleep (no commute)
  • More time for hobbies (no commute)
  • Get more done (Less distractions)

I wanted a work from home job. But I had no idea how to get one. My friend was a computer programmer and ran a computer system remotely.

I was a chemical engineer developing pharmaceutical drugs and manufacturing processes. Not exactly the kind of thing you can do at home.

It took me until 2009 plus one massive career change to find a way to work from home.

If you want to work from home, you’re going to need to set up some very consistent systems and practices to make you successful.

You want to be more productive while still having time to do the laundry, make a meal, and get in a workout.

Working from home seems like a great way to get a lot of work done without the distractions of workplace gossip and coworker sniping you for a “quick” conversation.

Rarely does this work out the way it was planned and most remote workers end up right back at corporate headquarters sitting in a soup of Wifry, gossip, and mauve cubicles.

Don’t be that person!

Most people who start working from home find themselves distracted. One minute you are answering emails and the next minute you’re in front of the TV playing video games. Poof – there goes any productivity for the day.

 

1.   Find a Way to Work Remote

Working in a modern office means Wifry soup, cellphones in everyone’s pocket, toxic water, toxic emissions from building products, and stressful commutes. The EMF environment in modern workplaces is not set up for health, it’s set up to bleed your productive years out of you and then let you go.

There are many ways to set up a work from home assignment. You can negotiate to work from home every other Friday as a start and that’s what I did. I started out asking for every other Friday to be a work from home day. It worked so well, we went to every Friday was work from home for the whole team.

Tim Ferriss has the best book on how to set this up in your own life. Check his book out and find your path. 

I had to quit my pharmaceutical job and take a paycut to work in a more life sustaining job and one that was suited to working form home.

In my 11 years working from home, I don’t regret my decision and it’s led me to be healthier and happier.

Be accountable, get your work done, and stay connected when you’re home.

2.   Create an Office

When you work from home usually you work from the kitchen table. There are just too many distractions for most people to be productive. You likely don’t have necessary work tools, an ergonomic chair, and will get distracted with chores and cleaning.

Make a specific place in your house business only. You don’t want to associate your dining room or kitchen with work. These are places to connect with food and family.

I started out in a specific corner of my living room. I set up a desk, chair, and all necessary cords and tools I needed in one spot.

Having a specific office location will help you get focused and keep the energetics of work in one place in your home.

If you have the ability, set an entire room up as your home office. This allows others to see this as your work space and be more respectful of walking in on important meetings and disturbing you.

I now have an entire room as my office, with dual monitors, a docking station, red lights for health, a sit stand desk, an ergonomic chair, and all my work tools. When I get into that office I focus on work.

Make a work space and set it up for optimal focus.

 

3.   Check in

Check in with coworkers and your boss often. Many people will think you spend all day in your PJs eating ice cream and watching Netflix.

Check in often with coworkers to let them know you’re working and keep track of your daily work for a while to share with you boss. This way you can document that you are in fact productive and working.

When I first set up my work from home assignment, it was a 6 month trial. My boss actually set up a laptop at work on my old desk, and asked me to be on video all day long so it would be projected onto the computer at work on my old desk. That way everyone could see I was at work and not forget about me. Luckily we didn’t do that, as it would have felt too much like surveillance.

I did however, keep a daily log of what I worked on and was able to show that to my boss whenever he asked what I was working on.

Another issue I had is whenever I left my computer to use the bathroom, someone would inevitably call me and wonder why I wasn’t at my desk. You just have to work through these issues and know that it’s OK to take bathroom and refreshment breaks.

Whenever I made the trip back to corporate headquarters, I scheduled 3-4 meetings with others that I hadn’t’ met before. These were just coffee meetings to get to know what they did for the company and make sure people knew who I was since I was not present at headquarters every day. This helped out immensely.

Do your best to help everyone at work be comfortable with your new work arrangements.  


4.  Wear Clothes

Yes, this has to be said. How many times have I woken up at 630am and realized I had a meeting that started….at 6:30am!!   I work on East coast time and live in Central time. SO I run downstairs in my underwear.  Remember, when you work from home, it’s a good idea to be on video in your meetings to stay connected and see facial reactions and more. At the very least, wear a nice top, that’s all people see. People think, perceive, true or not, that you are working if you wear work like clothes. Just do this regardless, because many people see you in a t shirt or shorts and then get jealous and unconsciously subvert your ability to stay working from home. Perception is everything!

5.   Phone a Friend

Make sure to have at least one good friend at work. Someone you can call and get the latest news. If you are completely out of touch you will quickly be obsolete. Stay up to date on what’s going on at the company. This isn’t gossip, but learning about new corporate initiatives, layoffs, acquisitions etc.. and just connecting  with someone back at the office. More friends would be better, but at least one person should be your lifeline to the office.

 

6.   Get Light Right

You are finally out from under the life destroying fluorescent lights. YES!  Fluorescent and LED lights as manufactured today are destroying your health and your mind! You are being farmed of your productivity and then thrown away. We could have made office lighting healthful, but we didn’t.

Don’t recreate the corporate office back home! Get lighting that rebuilds your health!  The #1 best thing you can do is work outside. Grab a 50 foot LAN cable and take your laptop outside (LINK to cable).

I do this every single day in the summer and fall.  Open a window in the winter when possible.

When inside, use biologically appropriate lighting. This SaunaSpace Light gives off red and infrared light. Two healing rays of light that are completely absent in corporate workplaces. You get so much blue light from your monitor, smartphone and other devices, don’t add more from your room lighting.

Use red lights all over. I use Gembared (Discount code SLEEP) and SaunaSpace Lighting in my home when it’s dark.

If you need to see color, use incandescent lights with no coatings on them.

Light is truly THE most important health Hack you can build into your home office that you can’t do at the corporate office.

The right light minimizes migraines, eye strain, fatigue and more.

You can add Iris as a screen protector app to reduce blue light.

 

7.    Open a Window

First, if you’re working from home, for goodness sake, get a spot near a window!

Studies show windows and nature reduce stress and increase happiness.

Plus the light is more healing in front of a window, and hopefully you can even open your window, unlike at corporate, and let in the fresh air and natural light. An open window lets in healthier light than a closed window, yes it makes a big difference.

A closed window blocks ultraviolet light and most of the red and infrared light but lets in all the blue light, which is what’s already getting into your brain, eye and body from the laptop, phone etc.. So open the window anytime you want.

8.   Minimize distractions

Create working hours and practice holding yourself accountable.

Laundry, dishes, vacuuming, video games, kids and more. You’ll want to break away from work you find boring, or to tackle piles of laundry so you don’t have to do it later.

Don’t let the distractions take you away from being productive.

This works better when you love the work you’re doing. If you are involved in soulless work, distractions come easily and often.

It’s easiest for me to put on headphones and use binaural beats (Brain.FM) to keep me on task and not so distracted.

I block out my calendar at noon to eat lunch and get in a workout.

If you don’t schedule this, I find that someone schedules meetings for me all day with not one break.

Schedule breaks and use that time to do chores and a workout.

You can eat lunch at your desk because it’s like eating with friends more than eating alone.. sometimes. Eating alone isn’t always ideal.

Some of you will have to leave the house and work at the coffee shop or library, both have free internet, in order to avoid the distractions of home.

I find I get distracted way more when I’m doing tasks I find boring.

Sad to say most of us work in jobs that are meaningless. This is by design!

 

9.   Take Breaks

People at corporate have to travel farther to the bathroom, to get coffee or tea, water, and lunch, and for meetings. People in the office talk to each other and gossip and walk to meetings and their cars and travel between buildings.

You too should take mini breaks. THIS is the time to do some laundry, call a friend at work, make up some tea, or go outside and soak up some sun.

I take a sun break at dawn every single morning. I also take breaks to grab tea and coffee.

If I’m in meetings all day long, I usually won’t move much at all. This is not ideal!

When you work from home you end up sitting in the same chair all day long for many hours, one meeting after another. I have to tell my coworkers I’m going to take a 5 minute break to go to the bathroom and grab some tea. Sometimes I just take a walk around the outside of my house.

Sometimes, I take my phone and put on my earbuds, put my phone in my backpack, and take my phone calls on a walk.

This is necessary. Don’t get in the habit of sitting in the same place all day long.

Do some light stretching, take a proper lunch break, and peel away from the computer throughout the day.

When I was really into working out, I kept a kettlebell at my desk and alternated pushups, pull ups, squats, and kettlebell swings all day.

 

10.                MOVE

When you don’t have to park a car and walk to the front door of the office, head down the hall for a meeting, or walk upstairs to the bathroom you don’t move much. You could sit in front of your laptop all day long and still be in every single meeting and get meals, assuming they are already at your desk. All this means you have the opportunity to move far less than usual. Don’t become sedentary!
Get up and take dinner out of the freezer.  Get outside at sunrise and do some light exercise or take a walk. Take a walk or get in a workout at lunch.

I get outside every single day at sunrise.

At lunch I go for a workout, take a walk, or go XC skiing. In 45 minutes I have done my exercise for the day and I’m back at my desk eating my lunch.

I also have a standing desk and a stool height Aeron chair. This way I can alternate sitting and standing throughout the day.

Put your phone on speaker and do some pushups, stretching, or go for a walk during your meeting.

 

11.                Set Office Hours

Don’t let family, friends, and kids intrude on this time. You would normally be at work.

It’s great that you are home and can see your family more, but ensure there are clear boundaries.

Constant interruption makes it impossible to get anything done.

If you have kids at home, do your best to get 20-40 minutes of focused work in before you are interrupted.

 

12.                Hard Wire Your Office

This is so important and yet most people will ignore this. Don’t!

You just left the toxic soup of Wifry back at the office. Don’t stand next to the wifi router at home all day long.

WIFI and EMF reduces immunity and harms your body. Just because it’s everywhere at work and coffee shops and schools doesn’t mean it’s safe! It isn’t.

Turn off the wifi and connect up some LAN lines to your cellphone and laptop. These are faster than wifi and won’t bombard your body with microwaves all day long. HERE’s our article on how to do this from home, and a video about how to set up your home on LAN lines.

Conclusion

Setup an office space. Get appropriate lights and hard connect everything. Turn off your WiFi.

TO IMPROVE YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM HARD CONNECT YOUR LAPTOP & CELLPHONES

If you are looking for a way to boost your immune system, It might be time to hard connect your devices.  WIFI is a huge stressor on your immune system and the way your body recovers especially during sleep.  

In this article, Thaddeus and I will show you step by step process to connect your router to all your devices in this tutorial.  

This will enable you to turn your WIFI off permanently.  Turning off WIFI is one major way to upgrade your immune system.  "Bring back the cords" is the heading in Dr. Mercola's latest book "EMF*D".  

Mercola states, "much of our exposure can be reduced by returning to using corded phones at home, corded headsets instead of Bluetooth, and Ethernet cables to connect computers, printers, televisions, and other devices to the internet."  

As we said before, If you are looking for a way to boost your immune system, It might be right time to hard connect your wireless devices.  

Thaddeus recommends that if you only will do one thing...or have to assimilate your family with baby steps, begin by turning off WIFI at night. 

When you are sleeping, your body is in repair mode, this is the most important time to create a emf free zone in your home. Taking your health seriously, improving your immune system, creating a healing environment in your home are the best reasons to stay away from wireless tech.  Here is how you can BETTER PROTECT YOUR FAMILY.

When you are ready for the jump to HARD CONNECT and remove wireless altogether here is the 411 on "how to hard connect".

In this article, Thaddeus and I will show you step by step process to connect your router to all your devices.

This will enable you to turn your WIFI off permanently.  Turning off WIFI is one major way to upgrade your immune system.  "Bring back the cords" is the heading in Dr. Mercola's latest book "EMF*D".  

Mercola states, "much of our exposure can be reduced by returning to using corded phones at home, corded headsets instead of Bluetooth, and Ethernet cables to connect computers, printers, televisions, and other devices to the internet."

 

step 1:  Buy these ethernet adaptors

here are amazon links to each product:

Linksys gigabit LAN port (get 1)

50 ft flat LAN cable  (you might need a 10ft, 25ft, or up to 50ft cable depending on your needs) you will also need as many cables as to the number of devices you want to connect)

iPhone to ethernet adaptor 

android to ethernet adaptor

 

step 2

Plug in the linksys gigabit LAN port to the wall outlet.

 

step 3

Connect a LAN cable from your cable modem or wifi router

to the linksys LAN port.

 

step 4

Insert a LAN cable from the linksys gigabit port to your laptop.

 

step 5

Insert a LAN cable from the linksys gigabit port to your cellphone adaptor (either android or iPhone)  

 

step 6 

Turn your laptop on to airplane mode

step 7 

Turn your cellphone onto airplane mode

When connecting your cellphone to the LAN adaptor make sure you see this symbol, if you do not you either have to mess with settings (iphone) or plug or unplug a couple times.  If this doesnt work you may need a different adaptor.  We had to send one back fyi... But most of them should work just fine.  Don't buy the cheapest one, get a quality one like we linked you to above.  


step 8

Turn your WIFI router off

and here's how to do it:

look on the back of your wifi router for the ip address it looks something like this 192.1.1

enter that number into the search bar of your browser

enter your WIFI router password, usually that’s “admin”

go to WIFI settings and disable WIFI. To turn it back on follow the same instructions as above.  

You are now hard connected!!

 In summary, we have a variety of 100ft, 50ft,10ft LAN cords to ensure connection in any room.  Don't forget to connect your smart TV, playstation and iPad to the lAN line as well. 

Also your printer has wifi which is very strong make sure to turn off when not in use  ours is connected to the LAN lines.

There is also a way to connect each room to LAN router using the coax cable ports with this box.  instructions are on the amazon website.

  You may find all of this much more inconvenient and you will have cords all over the house.  We truly feel your pain.  We also understand Cancer is also inconvenient so are other autoimmune diseases. We are not willing to risk the health and safety of our family especially our children.  

It is more important to keep your immune system and health optimal than it is to run microwave radiation through your body all day/night 24/7 for the convenience of wireless.

We care about our health and feel its important to share this information with you.

 something to ponder:

by Dr. Tom Cowen.  - (forbidden knowledge.com website)

"So, what happened 1918? There was a huge pandemic - and every pandemic in the last 150 years, there was an a quantum leap in the electrification of the Earth, in 1918, late, late fall of 1917, there was the introduction of radio waves around the world.

 "Whenever you expose any biological system to a new electromagnetic field, you poison it, you kill some and the rest go into a kind of suspended animation, so that interestingly, they live a little bit longer - and sicker.

 

We hope this article is helpful for you and your family.

With peace and Love
