LIGHT THERAPY FOR BEGINNERS

When you can’t get out into the sun, you miss all that good jiu jiu just raining down on you. We evolved under all the colors and spectrum of sunlight. And now we live a mostly indoor life!

We aren’t going to tell you that buying a red light will solve all your problems. We would rather you got out in the morning sunlight. It’s free and everyone has access.

Sunlight contains all the right information to set you up for health and longevity. Photons are tiny packets of information sent from the universe to The Earth. Our skin and eyes take in these photons and unpack the information. We’ve evolved to use solar information as a way to understand where we are on the Earth, what time of year it is and what time of day it is. As we unpack that information processes begin unfolding in our bodies (hormone cascades) that have direct effects on our health.

When we’re outdoors most of the time, our body and eyes correctly interpret this photonic information and we stay healthy. When we’re indoors, and receive photons from man-made devices and lighting, we misinterpret this information and set ourselves up for poorer health.

PBM promises to supplement some of the frequencies of light from the sun that we aren’t getting in our artificial indoor lighting.

Sometimes you have a specific condition and need to supplement with higher doses of vitamins and light is no different. If you truly can’t find a way to get outside, then this is your plan B.

Photobiomodulation (PBM for short) is a way to supplement some of the sunlight we’re missing. All light contains colors, natural and artificial light. We can take advantage of known beneficial colors and reduce known colors that are inappropriate or over-represented in our environment.

Photobiomodulation (PBM) uses either low-level level laser therapy (Laser that doesn't harm the body) or LED lights to produce a desired biological effect. Cases have been made that incandescent light can also be used for photobiomodulation, and this point is contentious, but not totally without merit.

As humans, we’ve evolved to take in the suns rays and use those as information to our cells and brain.

LIGHT IS INFORMATION!

Let that sink in. Light isn’t just light. The type of light you expose yourself to determines your health. Light transmits information to your body. If we forget this, we become sick. We design lighting that costs less money to run, but harms our health. The wrong type of light disrupts animal life. It disrupts our own life. Our bodies were designed to take in light information from the sun and use it to create optimal health.

We can use certain wavelengths of light as supplements to the body, just as we can use oral supplements to help with health conditions.

Light is information. Never forget that.

WHY WE ALL NEED PBM

We now live our lives indoors.

Often we’re only out in the sun for less than a few minutes a day. If you don’t get outside to take a walk during the day you might not be outside at all!

Indoor living takes a toll on the body.

Indoor Lighting is Toxic!

Displaying 394163159_31d506b647_z.jpg

Indoor lighting from LEDs and fluorescent lights can be dangerous. Mostly because we spend too much time indoors and indoor lighting was designed to save energy and money and not to optimize human health. Oops.

We absorb light information through our eyes and our skin. Our skin is our largest organ. What information are we giving ourselves when we’re constantly exposed to blue light? We’re telling our body that it’s constantly noon.

LED and CFL lights contain too much blue light that harms the eyes and stops production of key hormones in our body. This is because indoor lighting is lacking red and infrared. Our body is not designed to process blue light without red and infrared and had never encountered blue light after sunset in our past.

This recent Harvard study on the dark side of blue light helps explain the dangers of too much blue.

Artificial lighting also rarely contains any red, infrared or UV light. This is especially true now that we have begun the ban on incandescent lighting (sad emoji). Incandescent contained very little to no blue and contained red and infrared.

Change over to Incandescent and halogen lighting if possible and use firelight as much as you can at night.

HOW TO OVERCOME YOUR INDOOR EXISTENCE WITH PBM

Finally, we know so much more about light and how healthy it is. Avoiding the sun is a bad idea. But sometimes you work all day indoors.

Red and infrared lights have been created to concentrate and supplement these critical sunlight frequencies that we miss out on by living indoors.

UVB bulbs can help us manufacture vitamin D sulfate in the winter in northern latitudes when we cant head South.

Full spectrum infrared saunas supplement mid and far infrared that we’re lacking in the winter and help us detox.

You can buy home devices to obtain the benefits of this light without heading out into the sun.

PBM devices are something you could use in the winter when you live in northern latitudes to make up for lack of sun.

You could also supplement with these lights to decrease wrinkles, reduce inflammation, increase collagen, heal wounds and maybe even regrow hair on a balding head!.

PBM DEFINITION

PBM is the use of light to affect biology.

According to Dr. Michael Hamblin, PBM is the absorption of red and near-infrared photons of light to provide a benefit.  Red light in the 600-700nm wavelength and infrared in the 780-1200nm wavelength.

Dr. Michael Hamblin is one of the leading researchers studying Low-Level Light Therapy. Michael Hamblin is a Principal Investigator at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital, an Associate Professor of Dermatology at Harvard Medical School and a member of the Affiliated Faculty of Harvard-MIT Division of Health Science and Technology.

I think light therapy goes beyond just red and infrared light and that green, yellow and many other wavelengths of light will be proven to have biological effects. These include the Ultra-violet UVB and UVA as well as mid and far infrared.

Here’s an excerpt from his 2008 paper titled: MECHANISMS OF LOW LEVEL LIGHT THERAPY:

“The use of low levels of visible or near-infrared (NIR) light for reducing pain, inflammation and edema, promoting healing of wounds, deeper tissues and nerves, and preventing tissue damage has been known for almost forty years since the invention of lasers. Originally thought to be a peculiar property of laser light (soft or cold lasers), the subject has now broadened to include photobiomodulation and photobiostimulation using non-coherent light. Despite many reports of positive findings from experiments conducted in vitro, in animal models and in randomized controlled clinical trials, LLLT remains controversial. This likely is due to two main reasons; firstly, the biochemical mechanisms underlying the positive effects are incompletely understood, and secondly, the complexity of rationally choosing amongst a large number of illumination parameters such as wavelength, fluence, power density, pulse structure and treatment timing has led to the publication of a number of negative studies as well as many positive ones. In particular, a biphasic dose response has been frequently observed where low levels of light have a much better effect than higher levels. 

This introductory review will cover some of the proposed cellular chromophores responsible for the effect of visible light on mammalian cells, including cytochrome c oxidase (with absorption peaks in the NIR), and photoactive porphyrins. Mitochondria are thought to be a likely site for the initial effects of light, leading to increased ATP production, modulation of reactive oxygen species, and induction of transcription factors. These effects in turn lead to increased cell proliferation and migration (particularly by fibroblasts), modulation in levels of cytokines, growth factors and inflammatory mediators, and increased tissue oxygenation. The results of these biochemical and cellular changes in animals and patients include such benefits as increased healing of chronic wounds, improvements in sports injuries and carpal tunnel syndrome, pain reduction in arthritis and neuropathies, and amelioration of damage after heart attacks, stroke, nerve injury, and retinal toxicity.”

This part of the paper is well worth paying attention to:

“In fact, light therapy is one of the oldest therapeutic methods used by humans (historically as solar therapy by Egyptians, later as UV therapy for which Nils Finsen won the Nobel prize in 1904 [2]). The use of lasers and LEDs as light sources was the next step in the technological development of light therapy, which is now applied to many thousands of people worldwide each day. In LLLT, the question is no longer whether light has biological effects, but rather how energy from therapeutic lasers and LEDs work at the cellular and organism levels, and what are the optimal light parameters for different uses of these light sources.”

WHAT TO FOCUS ON WHEN BUYING A RED LIGHT

When thinking about buying a red light device for PBM, pay attention to the certain critical issues:

  1. Does the light have benefits? In other words, do users of the light report benefiting from using the light. It would be a waste of money to buy a light that hasn’t been well tested and that has little to no positive feedback in terms of actual real-world results.
  2. Do you want to buy a laser or an LED light?  They may or may not yield the same benefits.
  3. Wavelength used. Does the red light use a wavelength in the biologically active band?
  4. The intensity of the light. If you don’t know what the intensity of the light is, you will have no idea how long to use it or how far away it needs to be from your body.
  5. The non-native EMF from the light (electric and magnetic fields) and more. If the light is putting out high EMF, you might not be doing any good.
  6. LED flicker may negatively affect our biology, however, Dr. Hamblin thinks that pulsed LED and therefore potentially flicker may be beneficial for PBM.
  7. The amount of time a red light device is used makes a big difference. The effect is referred to as biphasic. This means that low levels of light can have a stimulating and beneficial effect while higher levels of light can have an inhibitory effect.

All these can have an impact on your results.

IMPORTANT LIGHT THERAPY FACTORS

2 Types of Light

Before we get too far down the PBM rabbit hole, we have to talk about coherence.

To simplify things a little, there are two basic types of light. Coherent light and incoherent light.

Coherent Light

Coherent light is laser light.

Most photobiomodulation studies performed in the past on how light affects human biology has been done with coherent light. This translates to lasers.

Coherent light is a beam of photons all having the same exact frequency and all in phase with each other. It is a single beam that will not spread of diffuse. Lasers were used because LEDs were virtually unknown in the 1960s, having just been invented in 1962.

 The benefits of laser light to have a positive biological effect were first noticed in the 1960s when a doctor studied their effect in rats, hoping to show the negative effects of lasers. He found faster wound healing instead.  

According to Dr. Hamblin’s paper

“One of the most topical and widely discussed issues in the LLLT clinical community is whether the coherence and monochromatic nature of laser radiation have additional benefits, as compared with more broad-band light from a conventional light source or LED with the same center wavelength and intensity. Two aspects of this problem must be distinguished: the coherence of light itself and the coherence of the interaction of light with matter (biomolecules, tissues). The latter interaction produces the phenomenon known as laser speckle, which has been postulated to play a role in the photobiomodulation interaction with cells and subcellular organelles. It is difficult to design an experiment to directly compare coherent laser light with non-coherent non-laser light for the following reason. Laser light is almost always monochromatic with a bandwidth of 1 nm or less, and it is very difficult to generate light from any other source (even an LED) that has a bandwidth narrower than 10-20 nm, therefore it will be uncertain if observed differences are due to coherent versus non-coherent light, or due to monochromatic versus narrow bandwidth light.”

So, there are some admitted differences between lasers and LEDs, but on the whole, experts believe that LEDs replicate the benefits seen with lasers.  

Incoherent Light

Incoherent light, like the sun, LEDs, incandescent light bulbs and firelight have light that is not in phase with the other photons of light and it can diffuse. Only recently have scientists begun researching PBM with incoherent light sources.

The sun, being incoherent is the original photobiomodulation light.  Recently, incoherent light like LEDs have been used because they are cheaper than lasers, do not require special training or safety equipment, and appear to have the same benefits as laser light at the same wavelengths.

“Most of the early work in this field was carried out with various kinds of lasers, and it was thought that laser light had some special characteristics not possessed by light from other light sources such as sunlight, fluorescent or incandescent lamps and now LEDs. However all the studies that have been done comparing lasers to equivalent light sources with similar wavelength and power density of their emission, have found essentially no difference between them.” (Hamblin 2017)

LEDs were able to be used for PBM beginning in 1998 based on a NASA invention that increased the intensity of LEDs by using photon interference. The amplitude of the photon wavelength could be increased when constructive interference occurred (waves in sync with each other). This led to many successful applications of LEDs in PBM.

Pay Attention

If you look into the literature about light therapy, pay attention to whether referenced studies refer to the use of laser light or LED light. Pay attention to the wavelength used, the time the light was used and the total power delivered to the skin.

Some articles suggest that it makes a difference, that coherent light may provide benefits that non-coherent light will not.  If you want to do your research on the best type of light for the issue you want to fix, then ensure the studies were performed effectively with noncoherent, LED light. Here is a link to a number of studies showing laser light helped accelerate healing while LED did not.

However, Dr. Michael Hamblin from Harvard University and one of the foremost researchers on LLLT suggests that studies performed with both coherent and non-coherent light are essentially equivalent. A study performed with a laser showing a specific benefit should show the same benefit using an LED light.

In general, studies appear to support both types of light are effective, but laser light penetrates deeper for deep tissue healing better than LED. LED could still be used for those benefits, but would need an increased power output to reach deeper tissues based on the opinion of Dr. Hamblin.

Cool Vs Warm Light

When choosing light bulbs for your home, keep in mind that Cooler light has more white and blue wavelengths and warmer light has more red color of light. We want less blue light in our homes and more red light. Regardless, if it's a standard LED light off the shelf, whether it's warm or cool, it likely has too much white and blue light. Just get a red LED light for nighttime use that comes with a single wavelength of 630 or 660nm red light. That's what I use at home after dark whenever possible. And my kids love it, so there's that. 

Personally, I have removed all the LED lights from my home (except those used for PBM) and put in incandescent lights with clear bulbs. These lights have virtually no blue light. I also try to have several red LED bulbs around of 660nm wavelength to light at night when I don’t need to see colors very well. If you light at night with red light, you will be unable to tell what colors things are, it gets all washed out.

I might pay a few more dollars each month for lighting cost, but it sure beats obesity, cancer and poor health associated with blue light from LEDs. 

MECHANISM OF ACTION

Mitochondrial Energy Booster

Basically, red and infrared help our mighty mitochondria function better. Better functioning mitochondria mean more energy and less risk for disease.

Red Light and Near Infrared are the only wavelengths that penetrate through the skin. Blue light is scattered too quickly and can have negative effects when absorbed, especially at the wrong time of day and in chronic doses. Mid and far infrared are absorbed by water in the body and serve to heat up the water but do not act on our mitochondria directly.

Red and infrared light are absorbed by chromophores. Chromophores are just biological entities that absorb light. The most important chromophores that absorb light are water and cytochrome C oxidase (CCO).

CCO is the more important chromophore in PBM because it’s located in the electron transport chain of the mitochondria.

Light is absorbed by CCO and works by breaking the bond between nitric oxide and cytochrome c oxidase. When nitric oxide (NO) binds to CCO, ATP production is reduced. By absorbing light and freeing NO, ATP production is increased.

When this bond is broken oxygen can bind to NADH. This permits hydrogen ions to take their normal pathway and produce ATP (our main energy storage molecule/energy currency) synthase.

How is ATP produced? It is produced via cellular respiration, this process has four steps. First, glycolysis; Second, pyruvate oxidation; Third, Krebs cycle; Fourth and final step, oxidative phosphorylation. Most of these processes occur in Mitochondria!

Red and near-infrared light effect the final step of cellular respiration (oxidative phosphorylation). ATP is formed via an electron transport chain, electrons flow down the electron transport chain producing a release of energy allowing the cell to pump protons out of the matrix, and this process forms a gradient. ATP is made when protons cross over the gradient back into the matrix.

This process also involves cytochrome c oxidase helping oxygen bind with NADH. When oxygen ions bind with NADH they form the essential ions that produce ATP.

Red and near-infrared light enhance this process and restore the production of ATP, it allows the cells to have a normal metabolism again.

Throughout daily life, we damage our cells, so when their metabolism is returned to normal there will be numerous benefits to our bodies.

In “Normal” cells, the NO can create Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) in the cell. While in cells that already contain ROS, the release of the NO reduces ROS and therefore inflammation of the cell.

“The increase in ATP production and ROS creating leads to other changes in cell function, such as gene expression and growth factor production (Prindeze et al. 2012).”

“It is suggested that when energy metabolism is subpar chronic diseases can result and therefore red light, by increasing mitochondrial function may help alleviate disease..”

Collagen Synthesis

Collagen production can also be improved through the release of anti-inflammatory cytokines, therefore, stimulating fibroblasts.

According to Dr. Hamblin, TGF-ß is a growth factor responsible for inducing collagen synthesis from fibroblasts and has been reported to be upregulated by LLLT [68].

PBM stimulates fibroblasts and wound healing cells that increase collagen synthesis, reduce photo-aging and help improve skin.

Think about how resilient children’s bodies are, they recover quickly from injuries, this is because their cells have a normal cellular metabolism. At any age restoring your cells metabolism will produce many benefits.

PBM BENEFITS

Healthier Skin and Reduced Wrinkles

Who doesn't want to hack aging. Less wrinkles? Yes please!

81% of subjects reported a significant improvement in per orbital wrinkles (wrinkles around the eyes) on completion of follow‐up [r] [r].

That’s right, anyone over the age of 35 should be using a red light.

Regrow Hair

That’s right guys, try putting a red light on those bald patches. Hey, it’s worth a shot! Not only is it cheaper than drugs, but it’s largely without side effects. This study lists three effective research trials showing regrowth of hair with red and infrared light!

Heal Injuries

I am not making a claim that this will heal your injury, but here’s what the research shows….

Low-level light therapy (LLLT) also known as photobiomodulation (PBM) therapy has been practiced for close to 5 decades. There are many hundreds of clinical trials published.

LLLT has still not been widely accepted or practiced by Western medicine. And yet, it works! It works quickly, is healthy, and has no side effects.

Lack of understanding and access to a light therapy device is often the biggest issue.

Near-infrared penetrates the tissue better than red light, so it’s more commonly used for treating body parts that are under the skin (brain, glands, joints, muscles). Visible red light is more commonly used in the treatment of wounds or skin diseases.

There has been a large number of research studies recently conducted that has demonstrated how PBM can heal injuries and wounds.  Research conducted on mice, burn injuries and even navy seals have shown how PBM can heal injuries or wounds.

The way PBM heals injuries is by stimulating the photoreceptors in mitochondrial respiratory chains. Therefore, insinuating that PBM accelerates electron transfers in the respiratory chain, making more ATP readily available. 

Numerous scientific studies are being published on the effects of photobiomodulation. There has been evidence for light therapy in aiding the body in tissue repair and wound healing [r].

Also, PBM causes a decrease in reactive oxygen species, which prevents tissue destruction and facilitates wound healing. PBM heals wounds because wounds/injuries because essentially all wounds and injuries don’t heal due to mitochondrial dysfunction and the research has shown how PBM facilitates mitochondria, dysfunctional mitochondria, to restore their normal metabolism. When the mitochondria have their metabolism restored this leads to wound healing because of mitochondria’s role in regulating reactive oxygen species inside of the cell.

Here are a whole bunch of studies to support faster healing using PBM:

Athletic Performance and Recovery

recovery

Infrared light can reduce the time it takes athletes to recover, specifically 830 nm near-infrared light was tested. (r)

Specifically, red and infrared light has been shown to speed up athletic performance and recovery by enhancing the athletes sleep quality.

 In 2012 there was a research study on a women’s Chinese basketball team. Every night the treatment group was exposed to 30 minutes of whole body red light therapy for 14 days in a row. After 14 nights of the treatment, the athletes completed a sleep quality questionnaire, had their serum melatonin assessed and had a 12-minute run which times were compared pre-intervention and post-intervention. The results showed that the treatment group had improved sleep, melatonin levels and 12 minute run performance.

This study demonstrated how red light therapy could be effective in helping athletes sleep after training sessions and decrease the risk for sleep disorders that commonly occur after training. Sleep is an essential part of recovery that is when the body repairs all the damaged tissues caused by training, with better sleep the athlete’s bodies were able to recover more efficiently for training the following day, therefore, increasing their athletic performance.

Humans perform better when they are connected with their circadian rhythm. For athletes traveling across the country or the world to compete this can be concerning, due to jet lag.

Jet lag is essentially the resynchronization of a person’s circadian rhythm until the individual is adapted to the new environment. This research study used phototherapy to hack jet lag. They exposed the participants to either bright white or dim red light for 2-3 hours in the am, this showed to be effective in aiding individuals to have a nights sleep without waking.

Also when participants were flown from Tokyo to San Francisco an 8-hour time difference the researchers had them expose themselves to bright light for 3 hours in the morning of their new time zone. Exposing them to bright light in the morning allowed the individual to accelerate their ability to synchronize with the circadian rhythm in the new environment.

This could be a great hack for athletes especially those who travel. In order for peak athletic performance, it is important to have a good night sleep. Therefore exposing yourself to red or infrared light in the morning can help your melatonin production occur (we now know this occurs in the AM through the retina) and therefore help your body sleep at the appropriate time for the new environment.

If you can’t do the FREE practice of getting outside in the morning around sunrise (Red and infrared light only at sunrise), then think about supplementing with a red light device.

Weight Loss

“As UV light levels decline in fall, and carbohydrates remain available during these times mammals normally fatten because of the speeds of the SCN are slowed while the ECT in the gut’s organs is made faster.  This readies the animal for winter.  Carbohydrates do not make you fat, but the lack of UV light delivered to your eye does.” [r] 

Low-Level Laser Therapy as a Non-Invasive Approach for Body Contouring: A Randomized, Controlled Study

Obesity begins in the eye according to Dr. Jack Kruse. When we do not get the energy we need from light we turn to food. Due to the increase of blue light and the decrease of UV light our bodies are not absorbing enough light to create the energy we need. Therefore we unconsciously turn to food in order to obtain more energy (or vitamin D3). If we were getting adequate sunlight we would not need as much food.

Skin Health and Anti-Aging

“Although the skin is the organ that is naturally exposed to light more than any other organ, it still responds well to red and near-infrared wavelengths. The photons are absorbed by mitochondrial chromophores in skin cells. Consequently, electron transport, adenosine triphosphate (ATP) nitric oxide release, blood flow, reactive oxygen species increase and diverse signaling pathways get activated. Stem cells can be activated allowing increased tissue repair and healing. In dermatology, LLLT has beneficial effects on wrinkles, acne scars, hypertrophic scars, and healing of burns.” [r]

Joint Pain and Arthritis

Photobiomodulation therapy associated with treadmill training in the oxidative stress in a collagen-induced arthritis model. Physical exercise associated with PBMT decreases lipid peroxidation and increases antioxidant activity. This study shows how PBM can be an effective antioxidant and decrease oxidative stress, which can reduce the symptoms of joint pain and arthritis. Also, the fact that PBM is anti-inflammatory, would also decrease inflammation. Inflammation is sometimes the key player in joint pain and arthritis, PBM would help reduce this and therefore reduce pain and stiffness associated with joint pain and arthritis [r].

Increasing Testosterone

Light therapy, namely PBM may be able to increase testosterone. While you don’t want to shine a high heat producing light on your balls, for obvious reasons, PBM using the right wavelengths might help to increase testosterone.

This is likely only possible if yours is lower than normal, but even if not, worth a shot. 

There are a few studies showing an increase in testosterone with PBM, namely the mechanism is thought to be an increase in ATP of the cells that produce testosterone due to the red light. I’d say the jury isn’t out yet on this one, but it certainly does not appear to hurt and just may jack your low testosterone back up.[r, r, r, r, r, r] Anecdotally, this is how Ben Greenfield uses his Joovv PBM device. I’m pretty sure anytime he can take off his shirt and/or be naked, he’s in.

 You can also exercise, get cold, sleep more, relax, and massively reduce your carbs and increase fat to boost testosterone.

Increased Energy

Photobiomodulation increases mitochondrial energy production by red or near infrared while blue and green light decreased mitochondrial function [r].

Periodontal Disease

In a scientific study rats with periodontal disease, a gum infection that destroys the jawbone, low-level laser therapy was an effective treatment in order to protect the rat from tissue damage and reduced the bone loss from this infection [r].

Pain and Inflammation

Light has been shown to reduce pain when the light is being targeted in a certain area.

Also light can help reduce inflammation, which is the leading cause of most illnesses.

Scientific studies have demonstrated that PBM, when used on cells that have been stressed or diseased, it lowers reactive oxygen species (ROS) [r]. These findings are very encouraging for the medical profession, for the treatment of many chronic illnesses such as cancer. An increased production of ROS has been attributed to activating oncogenes and/or inactivating tumor suppressor genes, which cause mitochondrial dysfunction and a decrease in antioxidant production [r].

Anti-Aging

PBM can be an effective anti-aging strategy, research done on transcranial low-level laser therapy (LLLT) has shown improvement in cognitive decline from aging, mitochondrial function, and apoptosis [r]

Apoptosis is one of the most effective anti-aging strategies. We want the weak cells to die off in order for new stronger cells to develop. Also, many forms of cancer are caused due to lack of apoptosis. The medical community, from Dr. Terry Wahls or Dr. Kruse has been preaching that 98% of chronic diseases are caused form mitochondrial deficiencies with the environmental toxins, who wouldn’t want to upgrade their mitochondria’s performance.

Structured Water

PBM can also be used to structure your water. 

NEXT, SUPPLEMENT WITH UVB

UVB is totally missing indoors. Even if you work in a naturally lit room, the glass filters out the UVB and allows in the UVA. UVB is what creates vitamin D in the skin.

If you live in a northern climate, the sun never makes it high enough in the winter to produce enough UVB for you to manufacture vitamin D.

Many people supplement during these times with vitamin D pills. Based on new research, this may be a bad idea.

Instead, Chris and Thaddeus each invested in a UVB tanning bulb lamp, called Sperti, to get UVB in the winter when the sun is at too low of an angle to produce UVB. 

Be careful to limit your exposure and wear special glasses to protect your eyes. This concentrated light can be damaging if you stare at it, so use the tanning goggles that people wear to the tanning booths.

UVA SUPPLEMENTATION

You can buy a blacklight or a blacklight flashlight. Most people who use these, use them at night in combination with an incandescent light. 

Since we used to always experience either firelight or sunlight with UVA, we should either light at night with candles or a combination of incandescent and UVA light. At least, that’s what Dr. Jack Kruse does and recommends.  Is this a bad idea?? Frankly, we haven’t investigated the mechanism well enough yet. We’ll offer updates as we learn more about UVA supplementation using blacklights. For now, use at your own risk.

INFRARED

Displaying Sauna Space.jpg

We're talking about mid and far infrared here. These are typically found in infrared saunas and aren't considered by most experts to be true photobiomodulation. I disagree, because all wavelengths ultimately come from the sun and are therefore light. Saunas just use different mechanisms to create a benefit using light than do visible parts of the light spectrum. Saunas use light to vibrate water. 

Mid and far infrared act on the water in the body and heat it up. Heating of this water helps the body detox, stimulates heat shock proteins, which in themselves have tons of benefits, and reduces inflammation, can lower blood pressure and more

CONCLUSION

Red light therapy, UVB and infrared, all considered PBM are massive game changers for hacking our indoor lifestyle. While we at PrimalHacker always advocate for getting outside and getting natural sunlight, this isn’t always possible.

When you can’t get outside, when it’s fall, Spring, and Winter, or the rainy season, supplement with the right wavelengths of light for optimal health.

“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.

Mel Gibson: Hollywood Elites ‘Kill Innocent Children & Drink Their Blood’

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.

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

 

Thaddeus and Tomorrow
