Red Light Photobiomodulation Buyers Guide

PAY ATTENTION TO THIS WHEN BUYING A LIGHT

“In the next few years, every home with have one more maybe two light therapy devices” Dr, Michael Hamblin, Harvard University

Are you ready to buy a red light?

Hold up there!

If you want to benefit from a red light, you have to know a little bit about the science. Just because you buy a “red” light doesn’t mean it’s doing anything more than causing your neighbors think you're running a brothel.

HERE'S THE SUMMARY OF WHAT WE RECOMMEND

  • Know the wavelength and ensure it's appropriate for your needs. 
  • Buy an intensity meter and use it to determine the time to use the light and distance to keep it from your body. 
  • Get an EMF meter for magnetic and electric fields and measure the electric and magnetic field to ensure it's not too high. 
  • Buy from a company you trust and has good customer service.
  • Enjoy the benefits

WAVELENGTH

All light originally comes from the Sun!

All the light on this earth, every photon, even from artificial light, originally came from the sun. The sun is the original photobiomodulation. Our bodies, mind, and eyes were designed to use light from the sun to keep us optimally healthy. 

There is more to light than meets the eye. This is important!  It’s not just light that we can see that comes from the sun. There are invisible, to us, lights from the sun that shine down on the earth.

Take a look at this chart:

 

Displaying VisibleLightSpectrum.jpgNotice the sun emits light in many wavelengths that most don't consider “Light”, they are not things we usually think of as light. That’s right, radio waves, x-rays and infrared are all “light” and come from the sun.

Science has categorized light such as an x-ray, blue light or red light by the wavelength of that light. So what we call a color of light is really based on the wavelength that the light has. A wavelength of light is measured in nanometers, abbreviated nm. So if a photon is moving through the air with a wavelength of 600nm, we call it visible red light. 830nm wavelength photons will be called invisible infrared light and so on. The shorter the wavelength, the faster the photon is moving and the more energy it carries. So blue light at 400nm has a shorter wavelength and therefore more energy than red light at 660nm.

It’s important to use a light with a wavelength that actually has a biological impact on the issue you are trying to solve. We want the right type of photons hitting our body. Some lights actually use a white or blue wavelength of light and add a red filter. In other words, the LED driver is based on blue light and it only looks red because there is a red filter over the light. We want pure wavelengths of light, not just a red filter that might not give off enough red light in the wavelength we want. Other lights do use a true red wavelength but use one that has not yet been shown to be biologically helpful.

This chart pulled from the Joovv site shows that one of the receptors of light energy in our body, Cytochrome C Oxidase, absorbs many more photons at certain wavelengths.

I was able to spend an hour talking with Dr. Michael Hamblin from Harvard, one of the foremost researchers on photobiomodulation and we discussed wavelengths of light.

According to Dr. Hamblin: “This is probably the parameter where there is the most agreement in the LLLT community. Wavelengths in the 600-700 nm range are chosen for treating superficial tissue, and wavelengths between 780 and 950 nm are chosen for deeper-seated tissues, due to longer optical penetration distances through tissue. Wavelengths between 700 and 770 nm are not considered to have much activity. Some devices combine a red wavelength with a NIR wavelength on the basis that the combination of two wavelengths can have additive effects, and can also allow the device to be more broadly utilized to treat more diseases. There is of course much more work to be done to define what is the optimum wavelength for the different indications for which LLLT is employed.”

The bulk of clinical literature suggests that light in the mid-600 nm range and low- to mid-800 nm range is extremely effective. That is because these wavelengths have the greatest effect on the cellular respiration process. [r]

The most beneficial of these peaks are in the range of 660-670 nm and 830-850 nm. These wavelengths have been proven to produce substantial improvements in cellular function with a wide range of resulting benefits including improved skin health, enhanced muscle recovery, reduced joint pain, increased testosterone, and even weight loss! Alternatively, other wavelengths such as 700 nm or 720 nm have almost no biological effects. So, it's critical to choose a device that delivers optimal wavelengths of light.

So, it's critical to choose a device that delivers optimal wavelengths of light.

A recent paper showed the most biological activity in wavelength ranges of 1) 613.5-623.5 nm, 2) 667.5-683.7 nm, 3) 750.7-772.3 nm, 4) 812.5-846.0 nm

In another paper, wavelengths were tested including 670, 728, 770, 830, and 880 nm with the most effective ones being 670 nm and 830 nm, which parallel the NIR absorption spectrum of oxidized cytochrome c oxidase. 

Wavelengths showing 780 nm light stimulated bone healing in rats [31] and the use of 804 nm laser decreased damage inflicted in rat hearts after creation of heart attacks [32], 

It has also been shown that Red light can penetrate 15mm into the body at 694nm wavelength.

I asked Dr. Hamblin if it was possible that synergies between multiple wavelengths would increase the benefit of a healing light device over one without such synergies.

Synergies between multiple wavelengths have not been well studied. However, Dr. Hamblin agreed that a combination of NIR and Red light worked well together and it’s possible there could be synergies between wavelengths but this isn’t something he has studied.

INTENSITY

Do you want to be sprayed by a fire hose or a sprinkler?

It’s all about intensity. The fire hose pushes more water out of the hose in a given time than the sprinkler.

Getting hit with a firehose is not pleasant and is certainly harmful.

Same concept with lighting, except instead of water, it’s photons. This is best described by Dr. Hamblin as follows: You can cook a turkey at 350 degrees for a couple hours or you could cook a turkey at 10,000 degrees for a couple seconds. Both deliver the same energy. If you cook a turkey at 10,000 degrees for one minute, you won’t like the results. The same is true with PBM. More intensity isn’t better.

This leads us to the second aspect you should consider, which is the amount of energy delivered to your cells.

Intensity if the measure of photons hitting our body in a given area.

Intensity, also known as irradiance, is the power of the light at a surface. This is measured typically with an intensity meter that measures in units of watts per m2. Many research papers show study conditions using light in units of mW/cm2 or Joules     

Dr. Hamblin believes everyone should have their own light meter. Otherwise, you would have no way to know the intensity of the light device you are using and therefore no way to know when your photobiomodulation session is over.

After borrowing Joovv’s intensity meter for a short time, I went out and bought my own.

NASA-supported research and many other published studies have utilized an intensity of 4 to 6 Joules/cm2 of energy delivered to the body. That translates to about 50-100 mW/cm2.  For the relief of deeper symptoms, like joint inflammation, up to 120 Joules/cm2 has been shown to be very effective. [r]

This intensity of light is then delivered for up to a total dose of about 50-60J in many studies, meaning you would use the light of this intensity for 10 minutes to get the total amount of photons (50J for example) needed to match the clinical study.

Dr. Michael Hamblin from Harvard University claims in a 2008 paper that in general under 100 mW/cm2 is best for LLLT. (r)

Don’t think that just any red light will work for PBM.

This is a mistake many people make. Often, if you have the right wavelength of light, you may think you are good to go. This may NOT the case!

If you do not know the intensity, then you may not get you the benefit you are looking for. If you chose a light with too high an intensity, you may be getting too much light. Too low an intensity and you may not get an effect without long enough use.

It’s important to either know the intensity of the light you buy in order to know how long to use it for to obtain a benefit or have a time of use recommendation from the manufacturer that is based on the intensity of the light to provide a clinical benefit. This time of use can also be based on evidence from other users.

Because LLLT is so new, we will be seeing a lot of “field research”. This is what biohackers love. Self-experimentation.

Intensity matters when specific wavelengths are research for specific effects, which is demonstrated in this study [r]. In this study, wavelengths of 660 and 810 nm with the fluency 8 J/cm2 demonstrated the potential to reduce cognitive impairments associated with aging and mitochondrial dysfunction. But when the fluency was at 4J/cm2 the light had minimal effect. 8 J/cm2 is a lot of energy. Just changing the wavelength slightly or the combination of wavelengths would change the results. 

While intensity matters, it’s not everything. Too high is bad. Too low will not yield a benefit.

This is called a biphasic response. Too much light causes the opposite of what we’re trying to achieve. Too little light has no effect.

So higher intensity is not better. LLLT has a dual response curve. Meaning if the intensity and light delivered is too high, a negative effect will occur. If it’s too low, no effect will occur.

Displaying Biphasic Dose.jpg

Figure from https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2790317/

There’s a Goldilocks zone of the right dose. Unfortunately, this zone is not well studied yet. We know what this zone and response curve is for specific wavelengths that have been studied, but not for all wavelengths and not for combinations of wavelengths. And again, this is studied using specific parameters, usually Cytochrome C Oxidase activation. Who's to say there could be more things that happen in the body, some of them taking weeks or months to fully show up. This has not been studied. 

One important point Dr. Hamblin made was that, just like a fire hose, you do not want too much light at once. So you do not want too much power or intensity. He said it’s like baking a turkey at 10,000F for 1 second. It’s different than baking a turkey at 350F for 5 hours. Gettng the same number of photons over a longer time is better than shoving them all into your body at once.

Again, intensity matters. We want just the right amount of intensity without going over or under.

DOSE

Dose matters. A lot.

It's really very similar to intensity. Intensity is the number of photons hitting a surface and dose is the number of photons delivered over a period of time (the use time). 

You can’t just turn on any red light device and sit under for as long as you want. There’s an optimal time under the red light before things turn bad. If you don’t know what that is, then be careful!

Dr Hamblin recommends everyone, especially practitioners, but also those using photobiomodulation devices purchase a light intensity meter. Without this tool, you would have no way of knowing the total energy and intensity of the device, nor how far away to keep it from your body.

The intensity meter tells you the energy at a given distance. Closer to the device, the energy will be higher than further away. Some devices may require that you stand further away because they might be too intense close-up and others you may be able to touch to your skin. The meter allows you to determine how long to use the light and how far away to stand. 

Mercola and Dr. Wunsch indicate that an intensity of 10-20 mW/cm2 is ideal, while Joovv and some research studies argue 50-100 mW/cm2 are better. I believe both ranges work. Remember that more is not better.

Dr. Hamblin talks about the biphasic dose-response curve. Too much light has a negative consequence and too little may do nothing.

Hamblin – “Because of the possible existence of a biphasic dose-response curve referred to above, choosing the correct dosage of light (in terms of energy density) for any specific medical condition is difficult. In addition there has been some confusion in the literature about the delivered fluence when the light spot is small. If 5J of light is given to a spot of 5 mm2, the fluence is 100 J/cm2, which is nominally the same fluence as 100 J/cm2 delivered to 10 cm2, but the total energy delivered in the latter case is 200 times greater. The dose of light that is used depends on the pathology being treated, and in particular upon how deep the light is thought to need to penetrate into the tissue. Doses that are frequently used in the red wavelengths for fairly superficial diseases tend to be in the region of 4 J/cm2 with a range of 1-10 J/cm2. Doses of the NIR wavelengths that tend to be employed for deeper-seated disorders can be higher than these values, i.e., in the 10-50 J/cm2 range. The light treatment is usually repeated either every day or every other day, and a course of treatment can last for periods around two weeks.”

A Biphasic Dose Response means that if you use too little you won’t get an effect and if you use too much you will get a negative effect. You need just the right amount. Using too much, too high an intensity, too long of a time under the light can be worse than no light at all.

It is not understood why the negative effect from PBM happens, but it could be due to too much ROS (reactive oxygen species) being created in the cell.

The red light you buy should list the intensity it uses. This is the only way to know how long to use it. It’s also helpful for the manufacturer to suggest how long to use the device for certain conditions. If you don’t know the intensity, or the manufacturer doesn’t list it, get an intensity meter and measure it. You want to ensure you don’t get too much light and harm yourself.

Get a light intensity meter and use it!

FLICKER

According to Dr Alexander Wunsch and Dr Jack Kruse, LED lights can flicker and this can cause biological stress. Most of us do not notice the flicker of LED screens on our devices or LED lights in our homes and offices. But our brains may pick up on this flicker and cause stress.

LED lights flicker because with alternating current the LEDs (light diodes) are turning on an shutting off many times a second as the current changes directions.

Would LED red light panels cause stress due to the flicker?

I took a slow-motion video of my Christmas tree lights vs the Joovv and Redjuvenator to find out. Often using slow motion on a camera, we are able to show the flicker effect.

Joovv was contacted about flicker and described the drivers on their LEDs being of sufficient energy that they would not completely shut off during the AC current cycle and therefore should not flicker. 

Dr. Hamblin mentioned that pulsing of LED lights studied in the lab showed more benefit than constant photon flow and also said that flicker should not be an issue in PBM. Admittedly, he did not know much about flicker. But his belief is that pulsing light is more effective and therefore flicker in a light panel may possibly be a good thing. Remeber, it's not good for working or general lighting to have flicker, but for short time use as light therapy, it might be worthwhile. None of the lights I tested appeared to have flicker.

 

EMF EFFECTS

Magnetic, electric, and microwave radiation all have biological impacts. Knowing how high the fields are from the device you are using is important.

I don’t know of any red light device that uses microwaves (similar to a cell phone, blue tooth, or wifi). So we’ll rule this one out.

Magnetic fields are created by electrons flowing through a circuit. High magnetic fields could be damaging.

Electric fields are created with moving charges and are often present when magnetic fields are present.

All our appliances and wiring and lights create magnetic and electric fields. The goal is to minimize our exposure to these fields for optimal health.

Check to determine the EMF output of your red light device. I spent some time checking these four red lights for EMF

I measured the electric fields in units of volts/meter (v/m) with an ME3030B  Analyser and magnetic field in units of miligauss with a AC Milligauss meter model UHS2 from alpha labs.

Displaying EMF meters.jpg

Not only did I measure the EMF from the devices, as well as the intensity and flicker, but I looked up safe recommended limits for EMF exposure. I used the following sources:

PBM Devices

If you have to supplement, you want to supplement with some of the important the missing components of indoor lighting. Red, infrared, UVA and UVB are missing in indoor light and can be supplemented.

Before using or buying a device, ask yourself what benefit you are looking for.

Chronic health concerns vs vanity concerns like wrinkles, age spots and collagen may require different criteria in a device.

Do you want to Detox? You want heat (mid and far infrared), in enough quantity to sweat?

Do you want to reduce aging, wrinkles, increase collagen? Light in the 630-660nm wavelength stimulates cytochrome C oxidase and has effects on improving mitochondrial function and visual signs of aging.

Do you want help with improving mitochondrial function? You want red light in this wavelength 630-670nm and 830-870nm.

Ensure that the wavelength you select is appropriate.

Be sure to know the intensity of the light so you know how long to use it.

Check the EMF to ensure it isn’t too high.

SUPPLEMENTING WITH RED AND INFRARED

It’s been proven that red light therapy can:

  • Reverse photoaging
  • Reduce Wrinkles
  • Increase Collagen Synthesis
  • Increase healing and recovery
  • Decrease inflammation

In research, there are 2 clear details that determine how effective red light therapy will be. First is the wavelength of the light. There are two wavelengths of red light that show the most benefit, wavelengths of red light that show the most benefit.  630-670nm?  And 820-870nm?

Second, the intensity of the light matters. Lower intensity light will have less effect and take a much longer time to benefit. Higher intensity light will penetrate the body deeper and take less time to be effective.

Red light works on the skin by stimulating cytochrome c oxidase in the cells. Infrared light is said to penetrate the skin up to 1.5 inches and works on cells deeper that what red light can penetrate. However, studies show that both red and infrared appear to do similar things in the body and thus infrared does what red light does, but passes deeper into the body. So infrared can work on joints, bone, cartilage, and musculoskeletal problems. Near-infrared also shows benefits for athletic performance and recovery, diabetes, kidney disease and eye health!

I even heard Dr. Mercola say that red and infrared on the patella or sternum can increase stem cells release from bone marrow!

While there are many devices out there, we only list those for which we’ve had experience and talked with the founders and scientists in the companies.

In full disclosure, Chris and I own a Joovv light. One was given to us for free and one we purchased at full price. We each own a REDJuvenator that we purchased for the full amount. Thaddeus has a Sauna Space EMF free Sanctuary EMF blocking Sauna created by Brian Richards. The Sauna is on loan from Sauna Space. Thaddeus and Chris each own full spectrum infrared saunas that were purchased at full retail price. Thaddeus owns a red 630nm light from Amazon purchased at full price. Chris and Thaddeus own a GembaRed red light. We purchased one at full price and receveid one to test.  We do make money if you use our Joovv discount code or GembaRed discount code (code Primalhacker). 

JOOV

Displaying IMG_20170814_201838.jpg

Joovv was developed by two couples who include medical device professionals.  The name actually comes from a combination of rejuvenation and domain names that weren’t yet purchased.

Joovv based their light design on scientific studies of LLLT.  Joovv is transparent about the wavelengths and intensity they use and have made a rugged and effective device.

In addition, Dr. Michael Hamblin is on their scientific advisory board and supports that the Joovv is an effective light for PBM.

At this time we do not recommend Joovv as the price is much higher than comparable units. 

JOOVV WAVELENGTHS

Joov uses 2 proven wavelengths of red light, 660 and 850nm. Joovv also uses an intensity of 100 mW/cm2 at 10cm from the device, which is high enough to match the clinical studies that have been performed to show a benefit. 

Joovv Intensity

Joovv also uses an intensity of 100 mW/cm2 at 10cm from the device, which is high enough to match the clinical studies that have been performed to show a benefit. My measurements show this varies considerably based on distance. Close to the device, about 1” away, you will get closer to 200-400 mW/cm2 depending on the LED. Some LEDs were more intense when I measured them than others.  Remember, you don’t want too much light all at once. Dr. Michael Hamblin likened this to cooking a turkey at 10,000 degrees. You won’t like the results.

Displaying Irradiance Joovv.jpg

Joovv explains that specific wavelength and intensity red lights are required to receive the therapeutic effect of a red light device. They claim that their intensity and wavelength are well studied in the literature to provide a benefit while other red lights do not have the right wavelength or have too low a frequency to produce an effect without many hours of use. THIS article validates Joovv’s point that wavelength and intensity matter and that they use the right wavelengths and intensity.

This is the same light Ben Greenfield uses to shine on his balls while he takes client calls. Ben claims it can increase testosterone. I haven’t seen any evidence of this in the literature, but anecdotally Ben and others claim it’s true and supposedly have some data of their own to back it up.

Displaying IMG_20170814_201717.jpg

I spoke to the founders about how to use the Joovv Original and here's what they said:

1) Stand about About 6-12" away.  The closer you are, the more Joules of energy you'll receive.  Here are our general treatment guidelines if you're interested.

2) For proactive health, I'd recommend 8-10 minutes per treatment area.  For "problem areas", you can probably go a little longer (10-12 minutes).

3)It's completely safe to look at the light.  In fact, the specific wavelengths you're using have been clinically proven to be beneficial when it comes to vision.  Here's just one of many published studies.

EMF

Joovv, based on feedback from Dr. Mercola, said they added a shielded cord to significantly reduce EMFs. However, at the latest EMF retreat, we tested the Joovv cord and it was not shielded!

The EMFs measured very low on Joovv from electric field and low, but not as low as Redjuvenator or Sauna Space on magenetic field. So decently low in EMF but very high from the cord. Stay away from the cord or buy a shielded cord for your Joovv. 

 

Displaying EF Joovv.jpgElectric Field

 

Magnetic Field - A level of 0.5 or less is what we're looking for here to ensure parasympathetic response. So this is technically much higher than I'd like to see.

GEMBARED

 

Developed by chemical engineer Andrew LaTour, the GembaRed is his solution to an affordable PBM device. So many of the lights on the market were being sold for more than $500 and were out of reach for most people to afford. Andrew took his engineering knowledge and designed a red light with the proper wavelengths for under $300.  He then went a step further and measured the EMF, intensity, and wavelengths and published all that on his website. He gets an A for transparency and an A+ for customer support. He not only listened to his customers and reduced the EMF of his light, but he's offering to upgrade anyone who bought his original light by replacing it with a low EMF version for a very tiny (under $20) fee. 

We're impressed by this light for the value, low EMFs, and proper wavelengths. 

GEMBARED WAVELENGTHS

Andrew used three wavelengths of light in this device.  Gembared wavelengths are 630nm 660nm and 850nm.

GEMBARED INTENSITY

The intensity of the GembaRed low EMF red light is not as high as I would like. It ranks lowest of all tested lights. This means we have to use the GembaRed for longer than we'd use other PBM devices in this article. This isn't necessarily bad because it means you can read or work on your laptop while using the light without fear of getting too much. The measured intensity is the lowest of all tested lights coming in at just 7-12mW/cm2. 

GEMBARED EMF

GembaRed is truly a low EMF light. Andrew actually redesigned the light from the original to massively reduce EMFs. We tested both the original and reduced EMF light. The original light had the same EMF readings as the RedJuvenator #3 while the reduced EMF version came in about the same as the Joovv or lower.

PLATINUMLED LIGHT THERAPY

If you are looking for a full-body therapy device, this is the one for you!

We've tested the wavelengths, EMF, Intensity and more and PlatinumLED lights make the cut. 

Designed by a company that's been in business for over 10 years. This is a plus because most light companies are brand new and do not have the customer service and light design record needed to make great lights.  Only PlatinumLED and also Gembared really do the research on best LED drivers and more. 

We've tested a ton of lights and for a whole-body therapy light, this is the best choice from cost to effectiveness.  We made a video instead of a written table showing you the specs for this light. 

These guys have been making grow lights for a decade and they understand light. They didn't enter this market from nothing. LED drivers and light angle all make a difference in how effective and long-lasting the lights will be. So check out someone who's been in the business for probably the longest.

REDJUVENATOR #3

The Redjuvenator was developed by Leanne Venier, an engineer, artist, and student of energy medicine and eastern medicine.

Displaying Redjuvenator.jpg

The Redjuvenator has many hundreds of testimonials claiming great benefits from use including healing sun sensitivity (people who always need to wear sunglasses) to healing rashes, muscle pain, and speeding recovery. Some users claim that it works well to induce sleep and cure jetlag. Leanne Venier, the inventor of the Redjuvenator, has a private Facebook page where people post their results using her devices. There are certainly lots and lots of positive testimonials.

There are 4 different devices that Leanne sells. Each was created for a different purpose. The #3 is termed the "Universal" and is best for multiple types of uses, with the exception of killing bacteria. Killing bacteria and reducing acne requires her blue light formulation.

I've used the Redjuvenator for months as have other members of my family and we all enjoy using it and agree that we have benefitted from its use. 

Displaying IMG_20171126_160507.jpg

Redjuvenator Wavelengths

This panel contains two undisclosed wavelengths of RED light and one undisclosed wavelength of infrared light. Leanne will not disclose the wavelengths of light that she uses. She claims that they are effective but not well studied in the literature.

Because we do not know what the wavelengths are, Leanne keeps them secret, we cannot make claims pointing back to the scientific literature. However, Leanne is very well read in the literature, the physics, and in energy healing and Eastern medicine. We believe her when she says that the wavelengths she uses are effective and the testimonials on her Facebook page and website support this.

In discussions with Leanne she claims that the wavelengths she has chosen work in synergy with each other to provide more benefit than by themselves. Dr. Hamblin agrees that this is possible, but hasn’t seen any literature to definitively support it, except for using a combination of Red and infrared light.It's possible then that the Redjuvenator does use synergy in the red and infrared light to create more benefit than any of the lights by themselves. 

Redjuvenator Intensity

The Intensity of the Redjuvenator is also undisclosed, but based on the fact that it doesn’t have fans to cool the LED drivers and subjectively, looking at it in comparison to the Joovv, it is less intense.

Remember, intensity matters to know how long to use the device for. Higher intensity isn’t always better, but it helps to know what it is in order to determine how long you might want to use it and how close to put it to your body.

I purchased an intensity meter and measured the Redjuvenator intensity:  17 mW/cm2

Displaying Irradiance Redjuvenator.jpg

Redjuvenator Woo Factor

Here's where The Redjuvenator differs from all other lights. Leanne adds “quantum healing codes” and her knowledge of eastern medicine, energy medicine, and color into her light design. She claims this makes it far more effective than traditional lights that are based only on what’s been studied in the literature. Often the literature studies focus only on what NIH (National Institute of Health) funds and may exclude testing effective therapies for many reasons.

Leanne likes to say that her light has systemic effects and it does not have to be used on every individual body part to impart an effect. Others say that this is not possible. However, the literature does suggest this is true as highlighted by Dr. Hamblin of Harvard University in this paper:

"Although LLLT is mostly applied to localized diseases and its effect is often considered to be restricted to the irradiated area, there are reports of systemic effects of LLLT acting at a site distant from the illumination [82, 83]. It is well known that UV light can have systemic effects [84], and it has been proposed that red and NIR light can also have systemic effects. These have been proposed to be mediated by soluble mediators such as endorphins and serotonin. There is a whole field known as laser acupuncture [85] in which the stimulation of specific acupuncture points by a focused laser beam is proposed to have similar effects at distant locations to the more well known needle acupuncture techniques."

Quantum Healing Codes 

Quantum healing codes are not something I’m familiar with at all. Leanne claims that they make her light far more effective than others. I Googled quantum healing codes and came up with things about sacred geometry and oddly enough the phrase “quantum healing codes”.  The information I found on Quantum healing codes actually led me to a set of numbers, the so-called quantum healing codes. The site linked the codes to the various chakras in the body and eventually to colors via terahertz(THz) frequencies of light.

Here are the Quantum Healing Codes

Displaying Quantum codes, number 700wrong.PNG

These codes are derived as sacred numbers that can be used to heal.

Here is a chart showing the codes representing frequency of light and their conversion from frequency to wavelength, thus telling us what color light they refer to.

There are wavelengths in the red, orange, and yellow wavelengths that appear to correlate to the Quantum Healing Codes.

Perhaps Leanne is using lights within the nanometer wavelength of that shown in the Quantum Healing Codes. Perhaps the layout of the light diodes in the Redjuvenator are in the shape of some sacred geometry like the Star of David. None of this has been confirmed with Leanne. It's just what I was able to find on the internet. 

Here is a video of Leanne at the Bulletproof Biohacking Conference discussing what makes her light different. 

 

Redjuvenator EMF

Leanne claims her panels are low EMF but did not provide any indication of how she engineered that into the panel. In my testing, the electric field was very high, while the magnetic field was lower than Joovv and the single Suana Space light and about the same as the Sauna Space EMF Sanctuary Sauna.

REDLIGHTMAN

RedLightMan is a company based out of UK, founded in 2014 after the owner thought red light devices on the market were underpowered and too expensive. They have decent information delving into the PBM science on their website and appear to make a good product.

I have not personally used one of their lights. A friend of mine has one of their lights and it’s the one with 4 wavelengths in it.

Are 4 wavelengths better than 2? It’s hard to say. Dr. Hamblin says the wavelengths they use are so similar that likely the 2 added wavelengths do not do anything beyond what 2 wavelengths would do.

Wavelength

620, 670, 760, and 830nm. Redlightman claims all these wavelengths show activity by CCO per the chart from their website shown below.

Intensity

The website claims 100mW/cm2 from 20cm away. I have not tested this as I do not have access to one.

EMF

I asked the Divine Superconductor from Mitolife to test his full combo Redlightman light for EMFs. It registered only 1.5 miligauss magnetic field. Electric field measured at close to zero, but was measured with a Trifield meter, which isn't super accurate. However, it does tell if something is high or low emitting in electric field and the Redlightman appears to be very low. 

Redlightman makes this claim about grounding on their website: Whenever you touch this device and it is plugged in, it is providing a natural electrical connection to the Earth, even if it’s not turned on. By being grounded electrically, you are protected from EMFs in your environment.

I disagree with this statement. According to what Brian Hoyer showed me with his meters, you can be grounded and acting as an antenna with all the EMF passing directly through you to the ground. It appears you are protected from EMF if you test with certain meters, but testing with meters that measure body voltage you can see that some of the EMF are adding to the voltage of your body and using you as an antenna. Best to ground all devices and ensure you buy things with low magnetic and electric fields.

QUANTLET

Developed by Dr. Jack Kruse and Ruben Salina, the Quantlet is an evolutionary design in wearable technology that is designed to use PBM on your wrist. We wrote an entire article on The Quantlet. We think it's the right direction and sorely needed in our modern world. At this time, warranty and quality issues are keeping us from wholeheartedly backing the device. If Quantum Dynamics, the company selling the device, steps up quality and customer service, we will review it again.

It's also hard to know how well it works because the intensity of this device is different than others. Since it is supposed to be putting light into the blood via the wrist and keeping blood vessels dilated, it may be able to use a different irradiance to obtain an effect, but that is unknown at this time. 

We would hold off on buying this for therapeutic use, but encourage biohackers to get it if they want to experiment and keep moving the industry forward. We just don't know how well it's going to work until more people try it out. 

That being said, there are many users, device quality issues or not, that swear by the life changing and healing benefits they have received from using it.

 The Quantlet uses 2 frequencies of light that are critically important in ALL life, ultra-violet (UV) and infrared (IR). These two light frequencies can be captured by water and drive numerous processes in the body that maintain health. Without these two frequencies, we do not thrive, we are left open to disease and increased aging.

The Quantlet also claims to help keep the body at its preferred temperature so that it can operate more efficiently. When the body overheats due to training or disease, physical performance, and cognitive function decline.

SAUNA SPACE

Displaying IMG_20171126_155020.jpg

Can Sauna Space, which uses incandescent technology and is designed to be a Suana, be used for photobiomodulation?

Dr. Michael Hamblin – “Yes, incandescent light could be used for PBM, but you’d want them to have a red filter covering them to get more red light out. I’m not sure why you would use these though because they generate a lot of heat.”

Heat indeed. Sauna Space makes a sauna. For detox and creation of heat shock proteins. They heat using incandescent tungsten lamps. These lamps have a red coating on them. So, in theory, you can get the benefits of a sauna and additionally get some PBM at the same time.

In addition, Sauna Space has spent time, like Joovv, grounding their device and protecting the user from EMFs.

Wavelength

Sauna Space uses a broad spectrum of wavelengths. I was not able to determine the intensity of any one wavelength and it’s not possible with my equipment. Certainly, the lights contain wavelengths that are effective and cited in the literature. They also contain other wavelengths, mid and far infrared, that are absorbed by water and largely just heat the body (although that’s what you want in a sauna and it does provide true benefit, just different benefit than PBM).

Some people argue that there is too much long wavelength light in the Suana Space for PBM, but longer wavelengths just MIGHT be PBM too and work, via a different mechanism:

There is also some evidence suggesting that longer wavelengths (eg. 980 or 10600 nm) might have a unique mechanism of action that isn't based on absorption by cytochrome c oxidase. Some hypotheses have been published, describing intracellular water as the primary photoreceptor mediating the photomodulatory effects observed with longer wavelengths (Wang et al. 2017Hamblin 2017).

While the sun and incandescent lamps can do photobiomodulation, the incandescent lamp is not ideal. We always advocate that the sun is the ideal, especially while barefoot connected to the earth. Countless suneaters, breathatarians, and other wizards swear by it.

Incandescent contains little to no blue and a good amount of red and infrared, it is hard to identify the intensity of light in each wavelength. Because an incandescent is putting out a broad array of wavelengths, there is no indication of the intensity of any one wavelength, making it hard to perform photobiomodulation with an incandescent bulb. Covering the bulb with a red filter is ideal as it puts even more red and less blue onto the skin, but it’s still too difficult to determine the intensity of any one wavelength.

Short answer is that sauna space and any incandescent bulb can perform photobiomodulation, but it’s unknown how good it is without knowing the intensity and having testimonials and other data to back it up. I’d argue that you’re getting photobiomodulation, but it’s hard to quantify how it compared to a red LED light with a known wavelength and intensity.

Stick to using Sauna Space as a Sauna for detoxification and infrared therapy. I’m sure you do get photobiomodulation benefits as well, but it’s a bonus.

Intensity

I was unable to determine the intensity of the different wavelengths because it produces many wavelengths.

Intensity measurement

Displaying irradiance sauna space.jpg

EMF measurement

Displaying Electric F sauna space.jpg

Displaying magnetic sauna space single.jpg

Sauna Space has extremely low electric fields, almost unbelieveable. The EMF Sanctuary Sauna that I'm borrowing also blocks microwave radiation from cell and wifi from coming into the sauna. Not only do you get the detox benefits of the sauna, but you are protected from microwave radiation at the same time. 

Sunlighten/Clearlight and Other Infrared Saunas

Many companies make infrared saunas. Of course, infrared is light, so we discuss them as part of photobiomodulation.

Most infrared saunas, including full spectrum (meaning they contain near, mid, and far-infrared), do not use high intensity near infrared light.

Saunas are designed to heat the body by sending light into the water of the body and heating it up. Mostly this is accomplished with mid and far infrared heaters.

Heating of the water in cells of the body certainly has benefit including detoxification and generation of heat shock proteins. See THIS ARTICLE by Dr. Rhonda Patrick about the many benefits of Sauna.

However, the studied benefits that come from red and infrared light, that stimulate cytochrome C oxidase, are not what you get from infrared saunas.

Infrared saunas are best used in addition to red and infrared light therapy for additional benefit.

It is not suggested to use a red light device in a sauna because the heat will eventually thermal degrade the light diodes and they will not produce the correct wavelength of light once this happens. Joovv mentioned that their light is rated to last 50,000 hours but if used in a sauna it may last only 20,000 hours or less.

It is also worth noting the EMF exposure in a sauna. Many reduced EMF saunas cut out the magnetic fields but fail to reduce the electric fields or vice versa. It’s always best to check both the electric and magnetic field in any sauna you wish to purchase to ensure it is acceptable with all the heaters turned on.

Use infrared saunas for the detox and heat shock protein benefit and not for red and infrared benefits.

I used to own a Sunlighten Sauna and was able to test it for magnetic and electric fields, here’s what I found: The EMF claim that many of the low or no EMF sauna companies make is based on only one type of EMF. Beware and test your own. If you find a lower EMF infrared sauna, you will almost certainly benefit from using it. 

CONCLUSION

Based on the science, if you buy a red light in the right wavelength, it should work. Higher intensity lights deliver photons faster. I am undecided on what the optimal intensity is, but Joovv and Dr. Hamblin think it’s between 50-100mW/cm2. I’m not convinced that’s the optimal window, just the most studied. Though, for clinical studies, it’s  the intensity that most studies use. Doesn’t mean it’s ideal, but that’s what’s used if you want to do a research study. I have seen other references suggest 10-20 mW/cm2 is the ideal and this is more in line with lower power red light devices. 

If you are more interested in results than science, you can look into the device using quantum healing codes and undisclosed wavelengths. This has numerous testimonials and dives deeper into the “woo” and if quantum healing codes and eastern medicine is your thing, this is up your alley.

You’ll want a good idea of what problem you are trying to solve, why you want a red light device, and then choose a device based on the proper wavelength, knowledge of the intensity, and as low EMF as you can get.

Ideally, you want to buy a light where many others consistently obtain noticeable benefits.

I am not recommending any light. I thought about this for a very long time. I do own a Joovv, and if you buy one using my link, you save money and I get a commission. I also own a Redjuvenator, Sauna Space, 630nm Red Bulb and Sunlighten Sauna (I just sold it). I get a commission on the Sauna Space, and not on the Redjuvenator. I use all the lights. I have not had any major sickness, injury or other issue to put them to a true test.

Do a little research, talk with others, and choose the light that feels right to you.

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

So you work at night.

When everyone else is sleeping.  Zzzzzzzzzz……

Maybe you consider yourself a night owl.

Maybe you love the lonlieness of the night.

Perhaps you just need the extra money.

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

 

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

Humans are not nocturnal creatures.

That’s right. We belong in the SUN.

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

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

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

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

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

 

Light at Night is Not Designed for Humans

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Gremlin eating after dark

What The Heck Do I Do?

First, DON’T PANIC.

Do you have your towel?

Good, then let’s get started.

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

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

Clocks are the Key

Our journey into the night must start with the dawn!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Go outside within 30 minutes of dawn.

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

Block Blue

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

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

But you want to go to bed.

Get home and black out your bedroom.

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

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

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

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

Go to sleep!

Get a Magnetico

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

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

The magnetic field can help heal our bodies.

But it’s basically disappeared.

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

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

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

You can watch Dr Bonlie HERE talking about this effect.

Stop Eating!

Don’t eat within 3 hours of your bedtime.

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

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

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

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

No Technology

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

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

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

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

Then hit the hay.

Wake up and see the sun

Get up and get outside.

Sensible sun exposure increases vitamin D synthesized by the skin.

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

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

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

Ground

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

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

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

 

Sunset and Breaking your Fast

Try to time your first meal around sunset.

Sunset is sunrise to you.

Most humans break their fast at sunrise (breakfast).

First we see the sunrise, then we eat.

Eyes covered at work

If possible wear daytime blueblockers or nighttime blueblockers.

You are surrounded by artificial light.

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

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

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

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

Conclusion

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

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

 

LANGUAGE OF LIGHT

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


Have you ever heard of “COLOR THERAPY”?


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

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

sunset at night

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

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

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

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

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

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


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


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


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


THREE MAJOR CHANGES WE MADE: 


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

DO’s


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


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

eye in the tv 

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


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


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


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


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


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


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

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


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

Traveling also let’s you gain broader perspectives.  


DONT’S


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


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


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


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


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



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


Hope your days are filled with miracles.


Peace and love

Mel Gibson: Hollywood Is NOT What You Think

You wanted more conspiracy theory?  You got it!


After learning so much about what happens in the world. 


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


Here’s why


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

 

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

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

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


We always encourage everyone to do their own research.  


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

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

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

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



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

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


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


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


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


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

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


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

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

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


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


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


Here is another quote from David Icke.


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


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

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].
