The Yearly Primal Conference You Don’t Want to Miss (Paleo f(x) 2017)

Did you miss Paleo f(x) this year? Do you even Paleo, Bro?

Don’t worry Brah, we have you covered with this conference review.

There’s certainly lots of bro’ing out down in Austin. But in a good way.

While there were certainly dudes running around shirtless (Ben Greenfield, I'm just sayin'. Ok, and me at one point), and lots of fit gym rat looking people, the reality was that everyone was there to learn, share and grow. Everyone I talked with from celebrities to doctors to bloggers were friendly, accessible and open. And really, most people there would rather workout anywhere but a gym. We need a whole long article about why we need to avoid the gym and how it's making us less healthy! So even though many people looked super fit, often we found out it was through non traditional means. Hello Dean from ManFlowYoga, Aimee Rose, Ben Greenfield and so many more have found that gym training is just downright boring and even toxic. You can get hellu fit without ever setting foot in a gym. 

Paleo f(x) is a huge group of people focused on personal growth and using the medium of a paleolithic diet to come together. The paleolithic diet is really just a concept of eating food that’s as close to nature as possible. The more processing that’s done to the food, the more removed from nature and usually the less healthy the food. Paleo types also avoid grains (for the most part) and beans. It is thought that our ancestors did not eat much if any grains and legumes and our consumption of such things only came about with the advent of agriculture, which also brought with it numerous diseases that we belive did not occur in our hunter/gatherer ancestors.

Originally Paleo f(x) was put together to bring experts on paleo lifestyle and diet into an accessible format. So many people back in 2012 were becoming interested in a paleo diet and it’s ability to increase health but often found that they were the only person they knew who was doing this. Typically people moved from eating a processed low-fat diet to a higher fat, unprocessed diet through paleo eating and found increased health. Because it was seen as a fad and a fairly new one, people wanted to learn more about how others were living the lifestyle and increase their knowledge on what works and why it works. Paleo f(x) was created and has been a huge success every single year. People came to be with others who were like them. They came to learn how others were living the paleo lifestyle (which often goes way beyond eating and delves into overall health, wellness and mind) and came to have a good time. From late night parties to jumping into healing springs and even freezing in a local cryotherapy pod people found unique experiences and left better than they came. 

The atmosphere had a hint of competiveness with the RealFit competition going on throughout the 3 days of the conference, but all the competitors were fun, accessible and helpful. Both men and women competed against each other in multiple contests. The winner of last year's competition even coached me through the rowing portion this year (He used to row competitively). This was significant as you’ll learn later.

While movement classes and fit bodies are ever present, it’s not the cult of crossfit and it’s not all about fitness and competing. Often paleo style eating gets lumped into crossfit cultism. And it's true that many crossfitters eat paleo. In fact most people are not there for the competition but to learn, connect with old friends and make new ones. Aaaand to eat! By far the most prevalent vendor booths were showcasing food of some sort. Sometimes paleo f(x) seems more about a way of life that revolves around food. And some people make the mistake of stopping there, but it’s the other aspects that actually make a bigger impact on your health. As we’ll see.  

 We’ll tell you who was there and what we learned.

PRIMAL AND ANCESTRAL CONFERENCES 

There are two primal/ancestral conferences to attend if you want the latest on ancestral health, Paleo f(x) and The Ancestral Health Symposium (AHS for short). If you want to join us at the AHS use the discount code primalhackerAHS

AHS is put on by the Ancestral Health Society and is focused heavily on the science of health from the perspective of our ancestors. The conference is structured much more like a presentation of information and is more of an academic conference.

Paleo f(x) on the other hand is an exhibition. Yes, there are talks throughout the entire conference, but the talks are more general level information and the action tends to focus on the exhibition floor vs the speaking stages. Paleo f(x) focuses on living the paleo/primal lifestyle vs presenting academic papers about it. I’m all for the science side and I love digging into it, but seeing how people actually live it tells me whether it’s working. I can tell you that there’s lots of confusion out there.

If you want the latest science behind ancestral health and how it relates to food, fitness and living, go to AHS.  If you want to get down and live a primal lifestyle and learn how others are doing it, head to Paeo f(x). 

WHERE AND WHEN 

Paleo f(x) 2017 took place in Austin, Texas May 19-21, 2017 where it has taken place every year for the last 6 years (2012 was the inaugural Paleo f(x) and it’s fun to look at photos from that conference. Some of the biggest names in the business today were definitely more low key back then).

COST

Tickets are so cheap for what you get.  $299 for the full conference purchased 1 year in advance or $397 for the full conference purchased any time before the event. That’s a pretty sweet deal for 3 days of conferences, free food, talks by A-list authors and entrepreneurs, instant friends and more. Compare that to other conferences costing well over $1,000 for a similar experience. Throw in the fitness competition, the ability to get in a workout each day, getting outside every day and the overwhelming number of vendors and it’s a solid deal.


If you want to skip the talks, which is what we did this year, then it’s only $79 in advance or $87 for all three days. This allows you to take any of the movement classes, wander the exhibit hall every day and be part of pretty much everything except for going into the rooms where the speakers are presenting. This is such a good deal I find it hard to even tell you how great it is. Pair that with an Airbnb rental with a few others you’ve met on the Paleo f(x) Facebook page, ride shares from the airport and it’s an inexpensive way to learn, build, network and grow.

Don’t feel like you need to go to every talk or even any of the talks at a conference to get the most out of it. Especially at Paleo f(x). Much of what’s discussed on stage can be found in the presenters’ books and social media. Use your time to cruise the expo hall, make new friends, eat free food and do some movement.

If you want to find out what’s new, make new connections, network and eat some great food, then stay out of the talks and focus on the exhibit floor. Here is where you will meet people like Ben Greenfield, Mark Sisson, Doc Parsely and more. And you can actually talk with them. Instead waiting in a huge line to talk with them as soon as they leave the stage after a big presentation, you can just walk up to them and say hi.

Of course, going to the talks can be fun and you get to hear some the latest in the paleosphere.

DAY 0 HEADING TO AUSTIN 

What do you pack for a conference like Paleo f(x)?

Packing – Last year we came home with so much stuff we needed an extra checked bag. We had stayed until the last day of the conference and at the end, the vendors didn’t want to go home with all their product, so they literally just gave it away. We ended up with about 6 giant tubs of protein powder, supplements, greens powder and more. This year, we packed an extra duffle bag just in case. So a checked bag is key because you never know what liquids or products you may come back home with. 

Knowing that we wanted to go for a dip in Barton Springs, we packed some towels and swimsuits. Well, Chris forgot to pack a towel so he had to drip dry. Somehow I forgot to pack any sandals. Pack a pair of sandals that can get wet in case you want to dip in the river like we did.  The conference combines movement, outdoor time and a very relaxed atmosphere, so t-shirts, shorts and athletic shoes are really all you need and what we packed. We also added our blue light blocking glasses and key supplements like magnesium, Qualia and methylated B vitamins.

Flights

Chris left from Indianapolis and Thaddeus from Minneapolis. We spent the time before the flight walking, doing some wall sits and supplementing with CoQ10, Astaxanthin, Vitamin C, Chlorella, Glutathione and a baby aspirin. Flights longer than an hour are an all out emergency to your body. This is no joke. Some people might feel just fine, but the radiation from being so high in the atmosphere, the intense sunlight coming in the window and the Wi-Fi signal bouncing around the inside of the metal box (plane) combined with LED lighting is destructive to your body. Check out this article by Dr Jack Kruse about what is occurring and how to hack it. And yes, I did take my shoes off and ground myself to the aluminum seat frame by keeping my foot in contact with it the whole time I was seated. And I got up and walked, watched a movie while standing in the isle and made friends with two people in the absolute last seat on the plane. Standing and moving is key when on long flights.

These Vivo Barefoot shoes are perfect for airports, conferences, and walking around town. I've used them for everything from hikes to corporate presentations. 

 

WholeFoods – It’s pretty much mandatory that you stop at whole foods on your way in from the airport and grab some water, coffee or a kombucha and some food. We ended up meeting some other biohackers and Bulletproof coaches there randomly and that’s what happens every single time we do this. We also met Andy Hnilo from Alitura and sat down with him and his friends for a while. We picked up lunch, spring water and some snacks for the upcoming conference. The Whole Foods store in Austin is so big you could get lost. We saw so many business lunches there, which was unusual for us. People dressed in suits and business attire meeting and eating inside the Whole Foods. It was interesting. They had a Texas Barbeque stand, seafood and so much more. Definitely the largest Whole Foods I've been in. 

Barton Springs – Having met up with some old biohacking friends at Whole Foods, we drove over to Barton Springs. It’s an amazingly large, blue and cold pool filled with mineral water and it is said to be healing.

It was closed. Closed every Thursday for cleaning. This was sad and would be the 2nd time in Austin without getting into the pool. Last year it was closed due to flooding. We decided we really needed to get into the water, so bypassed the pool and walked around a kids train ride and down a slope to the actual Barton Springs River. We stripped down and headed right into the river. The water felt great!

Healing spring water and cold immersion complete!

Our Home Away from Home – This year, instead of an Airbnb, which we love, we stayed with a friend. We met Krisstina at the Bulletproof Coach training and again last year at Paleo f(x). She lives in Austin and opened her home to us. She had a beautiful home, and a pool out back with views. We quickly found that it was impossible to turn on the hot tub. After searching for a switch or button for a half hour we texted Krisstina and were told everything is App based. There is no button, except on her phone! So a hot tub session is just a text away.

The house was comfortable, relaxing, and it was so great to stay with friends and get to know them better. As if the pool, our own bedrooms with bathrooms and a hot tub wasn’t enough, they had one of those fancy espresso/coffee makers. Did we mention we’re Bulletproof Coaches? Being able to make really good coffee at the touch of a button and mix in some grass-fed butter and Brain Octane Oil (both of which they had in bulk) was simply awesome. That’s not a feature you get even at the fanciest of hotels.

 

After some Qigong on the back deck I headed to bed. Chris had brought along the Delta Sleeper SR1, and used that each night and sent it home with me to try out for a month. As for the beds, they were great, but the AC was set to 82 and we all slept too hot. A cold sleeping environment is best for sleep and the next night we found the Nest thermostat and turned it down quite a bit.

DAY 1 AUSTIN, 1ST DAY OF CONFERENCE 

Up early for a swim and qigong. Man was it nice being in Texas and having a pool outside. Minnesota was 40 degrees when we left. Texas was comfortable at 70 degrees and swimming in the cool pool to start off the day was divine. I didn’t want to do any exercise in the morning as I knew I was going to compete in the RealFit challenge and would get a FULL workout in at the conference.

After Bulletproof Coffee for everyone, we headed out. Krisstina was giving a presentation, speaking on a panel, working a booth with Doc Parsley and podcasting the entire conference. She spent the morning recording audio for her millionaire money course (Wellthy Wealthy) and came to the conference ready to WORK.

Arrive and head into the wonderland

It is a little like walking into wonderland for us. The Palmer Events Center is large and as we entered we immediately saw some old friends. We gathered a group and headed straight to the Bulletproof Coffee Station. We had lots of friends working the booth, filled up on Bulletproof Coffee (hey, there’s never too much Bulletproof Coffee) and grabbed some Collagen Bars while chatting with Kristen Strate and others.

There is so much to see and so many booths that it’s a bit overwhelming.

I immediately headed over to the realFIT booth to sign up for the fitness challenge. Expecting it to be the same as last year I was surprised to find out they have replaced the pullups and deadlifts with an obstacle race and an ammo box shoulder press.

I wanted to get in an early workout for the day and also get one portion of the fitness challenge done before it got busy. I headed over to the ARX booth and warmed up with a bench press and row.  After that, I went right over and did the jump portion of the test. This involved jumping as high as possible without tucking in your legs on the way up or down. There is a mat I jumped up and down on that records my height. I did well, beating my score from last year, so felt satisfied.

Next it was back to the ARX booth to perform the bench press and leg press for the competition. I have been using ARX for three months, so had a pretty good idea of how I’d do on this one. My scores on this put me in the top 5, up there with men who can deadlift 600lbs like it’s nothing. I felt really good about this score.

After that I wanted to do one more test. This was a new one and involved lifting a 30lb ammo box over my head as many times as possible in 2 minutes. The military standard that Marines have to pass is 67 and the most that they expected anyone to do ever was 120. The box was heavy and awkward and the whole time I was lifting it, all I thought about was not letting it drop onto my nose. 117 reps later and I was done. Until Ben Greenfield picked it up and did 131 reps, I was the leader.

Chris had a kettlebell class with Peter Hirsh from KettleBell Movement where they worked on goblet squats, swings, cleans and snatches. Peter is a great instructor and we highly recommend him as an online source for kettlebell training.

Once that class was over he headed over to get some ribeye and filet samples and washed it down with free samples of protein shakes and some Bulletproof Coffee.

Neurohacker Collective was at the conference with a booth showcasing their Qualia product. Here is a link to the review we did last year. We’ve talked with these guys on the phone many times, but had never met them in person. It felt like a reunion meeting up with Taylor and James and team. We got a special nootropic from them, handed one to Ben Greenfield and were ready to rock and roll.

Chris checked out Instagram and Ben Greenfield had posted that he was going to lead a workout in the park the next morning at 8 am. We made plans to be there and continued on.

Check out these videos for a summary of some of the vendors.

Most of the vendors were sampling foods of some sort. Beef jerky, meat snacks, protein powder, grain free flours made into cakes, donuts, cookies, breads and more.

After running through all the isles to get a good look at the vendors, I headed outside for the obstacle race portion of the fitness challenge. Alex Fergus (LINK) was out there, the winner of last year’s challenge, and so was Dean XX (LINK) who has placed second for 2 years in a row. Alex is a fitness coach, ex-bodybuilder, ex-rower, ex-rugby player who lives over in New Zealand. He’s a beast!   Dean runs ManFlowYoga and is totally ripped. I chatted with both of them as the staff told us how we had to run the obstacle race. They are both really great guys.

I was the first of us out there to run through the course. You can check out our video (HERE). I should have practiced the race first and it would have gone much faster. The dummy I had to drag was so much heavier (150lbs) than I thought it was going to be.

All in all, my time was decent and I was so exhausted after the race that I had no desire to try it again.

Here's a video recap of the realFIT challenge

I found Heather and we headed down the outside aisle of vendors to get some grass-fed beef for lunch. XXX was giving out samples of ribeye, filet mignon and burgers. Their portions were HUGE. I easily got 2 ounces of ribeye and fillet and half a burger. I paired that with an avocado from my bag and had a nice little lunch, outdoors in the sun, sitting next to a camel.

Chris stopped by the 10th Planet Jiu-jitsu table to chat and @curtishembroff invited him to their class on Saturday and even offered to show him a few moves right then and there! After a few mat burns and quite a bit of learning, Chris walked away SUPER excited about learning more.

The rest of the day until 6pm was spent talking with vendors and checking out their products.

We drove to Whole Foods on the way home and headed back to Krisstina’s to swim in the pool.

DAY 2

Workout with Ben

Displaying IMG_1995.JPG

Up early and outside to do some qigong. After 10 minutes in the sun and qigong on the back deck, I came in and got out the ingredients for Bulletproof Coffee for everyone. We headed out to the conference to park and then into Butler park next to the conference venue. We met up with a few others looking to workout with Ben. Eventually he wandered in with Heather, who had been parking the car, and got us ready. Shoes off, barefoot in the park and shirts off to get some sun we began. Ben led about 20 of us through an exercise routine that had our muscles shaking and us breathing hard by the end. It was a great way to start the day. After talking with Ben for a bit and getting some mandatory selfies, we headed into Day 2 of the conference warmed up, grounded, sunlighted and worked out.

10th planet Jiu Jitsu

We met @nogipris and at 10 am got onto the mats in the middle of the event center and took an hour long jiu-jitsu class. We went through three moves and learned a little more about 10th Planet BJJ.

I stopped by the RealFit booth to finish my fitness scoring for the competition. I had a shuttle run, 1,000 meter row, 40 yard sprint followed by a 40 yard backward sprint and a medicine ball throw. After completing all of it, I was definitely done with movement for the day. My legs were jelly. I could barely stand up after the row. But my scores put me at #1 on the leadership board. That was 5 places ahead of Ben Greenfield, 1 place above Dean and others. I felt really great to have done so well against people who are fitness professionals. I’ll be sure to detail my workout routines in a future posts. I rarely workout for more than 30 minutes, usually no more than 15 minutes and certainly don’t train every day.

I stopped by Biohacked, Dave Asprey’s company and picked up a pair of blue blocking light glasses from Peter. Peter curates the Biohacked boxes. The glasses they had were something I’ve been wanting to try since I heard about them. They are called TrueDark and come in two flavors, Daywalker and Nightwalker. The Daywalker’s are typical blue light blocking glasses that you can wear when in windowless rooms during the day or doing computer work. The NightWalkers are meant to wear 1-2 hours before bed. They block more than just blue light. They block blue and green, the two spectrums that can affect our biology after sunset. I wanted to see how much different these would be than typical blue blockers like Swannies (link).

Wow, are they different? First of all, when I put these on the first night, they made every single light bulb look red. Second of all, the light filtering into my house at night allows me to see without turning on any lights. I can easily get around. Once I put the TrueDark NightWalkers on, I couldn’t see ANYTHING. Unless I turned on some overhead lighting, it looked pitch black with these things on. I literally couldn’t see where I was. I’m adding these to my nighttime routine and will now put them on 1 hour before bed each night. They block so much light, I simply can’t use them any earlier.

Heather supplied me with a paleo donut, which I used as my carbohydrate to refuel after the Realfit challenge. It was a little heavy, but otherwise, tasted really good. Nothing compares though to a real, moist, airy donut. I haven’t had one of those in so many years I can’t even remember when I last had a real donut.

We caught Krisstina’s talk on the Paleo On Ramp Stage about the connection between health and wealth. She did a fantastic job and brought so much energy to the stage it was great.

So many vendors and conversations later, and it was 5pm. We talked with Dry Farm Wines and got a few bottles of wine for our get together that night. We also picked up some collagen bars and Primal Mayo from Mark Sisson’s Primal Kitchen.

Saturday night is a night of parties and get-togethers. There was a charity dinner put on by Paleo f(x) as well as tons of parties at private homes and Airbnbs in the area. Just make sure to ask around at the conference and you’ll quickly find out what’s going on. These are great times to get to know your fellow attendees and vendors a little better. Krisstina had some of the Bulletproof Coaches over to her home after the conference.

DAY 3

Day 3 is the last day of the conference. It’s a great time to check out the rest of the vendors you missed and try out products and technologies that were too busy on Saturday. The conference is still going on and there is always a great party that night, but we headed home..

CONCLUSION

Paleo f(x) is a great conference for anyone interested in ancestral health. Whether you are new to the paleo lifestyle or are wanting to learn more or even wanting to market a new product, this should be on your list of conferences.

No matter what your job, niche or interests are, there are definitely conferences that cater to them.

Buying a Home for 5G

A cell tower for every 8 homes! 

500,000 more cell towers needed to connect 5G in the US. There’s only 300,000 out there today! 

The internet of things spying on you from every device in your home.  

The 5G power density is so high because it can’t travel as far as 4G and needs to be cranked up.  

How do you Mitigate the EMF in a 5G world? 

Remember with 5G, these are directed beam wave energy. Get a faraday cage pouch for your phone so it's not calling for signal when you don't want it!

One way is to buy a house that will minimize your exposure to 5G. 

Here’s what to look for. 

 

How to Search for a place to live When 5G hits 

5G frequencies are different from 4G, 4G LTE and 4G LTE advanced.  

5G is higher in frequency and the wavelengths are shorter meaning they are more powerful.  

They also don’t travel as far as 4G.  

5G is more easily blocked than 4G, unless of course you have a 5G enabled device in your home calling for 5G frequencies.  

Because 5G won’t travel as far, the antennas are going to be (many already are) placed at street and human level to allow them to enter homes. While 4G can enter homes from the walls and roof, 5G is largely blocked by these things.  

Keep in mind that when 5G is turned on, 4G isn’t going away and will be flooding the world in addition to the 5G.  

When looking for a house, you want to ensure to choose something that will block both 4G and 5G! 

Hire Building biologist 

Building Biologists are trained to identify EMF hazards around your home, or your future home. Hiring a building biologist is the best way to buy a home that will be as free as possible from EMF. 

If you have the money, typically $1200 or more for a visit, a building biologist has tools to measure exactly what your unique 5G issue is. They have tens of thousands of dollars of meters that measure the exact frequencies, wavelengths, and hotspots in your house.  

In addition, they can recommend the best mitigation strategies for your unique situation.  

We hired Brian Hoyer from Shielded Healing, discount code sleep for $100 off your assessment. 

Buy a fortress 

Metal and earth block 5G. If you can find a home that’s sided in metal with a metal roof, you will have gone a long way to stop 5G and 4G from entering your home. If you can find a rammed earth home or a home that’s partially underground, or even a home where the bedrooms are in the basement, these all will protect you and your family from much of these frequencies.  

Move to the country (till 5G comes form above, quote about every square inch of planet) 

Cities have a high density of people. Everyone has their phone on, their WIFI routers on all the time, their Smart TVs, their self driving cars and more...  

To serve all these people, cities have to install more antennas and towers emitting 5G and 4G. This is because each antenna can only handle so many incoming and outgoing communications, usually 4 at most. So an apartment building with 1000 people will need a hundred antennas per se.  

When you buy a home in the country, there are fewer people per mile and therefor fewer antennas and WIFI and cellphone leakage from neighbors. In some places you will not even receive cellphone coverage. That’s an ideal area if you ask me.  

Find a home in the country that gets little to no cellphone reception and is far away from any neighbors. In addition, steer clear of overhead powerlines and sub stations.  

 

Pine trees 

Trees block EMF like that from 4G and 5G. Specifically, pine trees are said to block the most EMF.  

Find a home surrounded by pine trees.  

Build a cold plunge or cold pool or even hot tub 

Water acts as a natural farday cage. A faraday cage blocks EMF.  

Look for a home with a pool or hottub, or even a natural body of water.  

Get in this water often to let your body detox from the EMF bombardment it gets all day long.  

Bonus points for using cold water because this activates ancient pathways that can lead to healing and improved health.  

 

Take our EMF course! 

Tomorrow and I created a FREE EMF course. We could have charged actual dollars for this, but we didn’t. Take advantage of it now.  

The Earth Makes EMF and It's Good For You

 

Yes, it’s true, there is EMF that’s good for us, and it comes directly from the Earth and Sun.  

We all live indoors these days and we’re insulated from Nature.  

We don’t get out in the sun, and many doctors today will tell you the sun is toxic.  

Manmade EMF like Wi-Fi, cellphone radiation and Bluetooth causes inflammation and can lead to health problems.  

We rarely if ever touch our feet to the earth and instead insulate ourselves from the ground by wearing rubberized soles in our shoes. 

By doing this, we miss out on the beneficial EMF that heals us and restores our vitality.  

We call this nature’s EMF.  

Anything created by man, that our bodies haven’t been designed to deal with we call Non-Native EMF (nn-EMF). And these are the fields that largely harm our biology.  

Nature’s EMF is used by our bodies to heal, sync us to the Earth and Nature, and even helps us sleep. 

 

Daytime Electric Field..Thanks Sun  

During the day the sun shines on the Earth. There is an electric field produced on Earth wherever there is daylight. This field is energizing and create by photons entering the atmosphere.  

In addition, the Earth receives thousands of lightning strikes every second. These strikes drive electrons into the earth and also create the Schumann Resonance.  

Our bodies can use the electrons in the Earth and are also attuned to the Schumann Resonance. Science is still learning how this works and what effect it has on us, but we know that when humans travel to space and leave these fields, their bodies break down.  

The Russian’s recreate a Schumann Resonant frequency in space to keep the cosmonauts healthier.  

 

Nighttime Magenetic Field..Thanks Earth  

 

At night, without photons bombarding the atmosphere, the Earth’s Magnetic Field is more prominent. Our opinion is that this magnetic field is healing and we take advantage of it in our sleep to heal our bodies.  

If we sleep above ground level, like in 3rd or 10th floor apartments, or even just in a 2nd floor bedroom, we are quite far away from the proper Earth fields we should experience and rather bombarded by manmade fields from cell towers and Wi-Fi and electrical currents in the walls.  

If you want to take advantage of the healing magnetic field, sleep as close to the ground as possible.  Sleeping in a basement bedroom both allows you to be close to the Earth's magnetic field and minimizes or eliminates the manmade EMF fields.  

 

Grounding 

Remember all those lightning strikes hitting the Earth every second? This embeds electrons into the Earth, which is why the Earth is the largest source of negative energy and why we “ground” electrical things into the Earth. You can stand barefoot on the Earth and allow positive charge in your body, known as inflammation, to drain out into the ground. How amazing is our Earth?  You’ll want to be barefoot to do this and stand on a conductive surface like grass, dirt, rocks, cement, concrete. If you stand on a wood deck, asphalt or plastic you will not be grounded. You also cannot ground through your shoes or through nylon or polyester socks, those are plastic. Get some wool or cotton socks or go barefoot.  

 

Schumann Resonance 

Those lightning strikes hitting the ground create a band of frequency close to the surface of the Earth.  

The collective lightning strike frequency is known as the Schumann Resonance. Humans and animals, probably plants too, are tuned to this frequency. Cosmonauts in Russia recreate this frequency in their spacecraft to keep healthy.  

The Schumann Resonance averages to 7.83Hz. This is exactly the alpha brain wave humans attain when in meditation. It’s probably important to tune into this.  

When you sleep or live further from the surface of the Earth, like in an apartment or 2nd floor bedroom, you are more removed from this resonance. 

 

Sunlight is Information 

When we talk about nature's frequencies, the majority of those come from the Sun.  

Sunlight, both visible and invisible, is information to the body.  

Ignore this information – by wearing sunscreen, clothes, and living indoors – and you will be worse off for it.  

Obviously get safe sun exposure. This means building a solar callus and slowly working to get more sun.  

Getting sun on your naked sun is pure information to the body. This sets your circadian rhythm, tells your body what time of day it is and what time of year. This information can be used to make vitamin D and more.  

When we hide from the sun, we completely miss out on this quantum information.  

Studies actually show that people that get the most sun die less often.  

Sun has both visible light and invisible light. We know there is invisible light, like ultraviolet and infrared. I would argue that there are more invisible wavelengths that we even know about. Science isn’t all knowing. I would also guess that these invisible wavelengths we don’t know about are extremely important to health.  

Bottom line is get outside.  

 

When is the Best Time to Get Earth Based EMF?  

If you want to take advantage of all this good juju the earth and Sun provide, then you need to do a few key things.  

The best times are dawn and dusk. However, any time you can get outside is a win. 

 

Get Outside First Thing in the Morning 

At sunrise your body will read the light and set your circadian rhythm for the day. This is extremely important.  

Also, dawn sun has no UV in it. Your body has receptors for UV and it will know there’s none, so be prompted to correctly set your circadian rhythm.  

When we stay inside and look at our phone, the body is tricked, through the blue light of the phone, into thinking it’s later in the day and then mismatches your rhythm to the actual time.  

 

Where BlueBlockers 

We can’t stress this enough. Get those BLUEBLOCKERS on.  

These are to be worn whenever the sun is not in the sky (After sunset and before sunrise).  

Blue light frequencies mess up your rhythm and are associated with diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and obesity when you see blue light at night.  

At night during sleep  

Lights out, connect to the earth by sleeping as close to the ground as possible. Turn off the breakers to your bedroom or better yet the whole house, or better yet, just sleep outside.  

You could also use a grounding sheet from Earthing Company. We use a King size grounding sheet under our bottom sheet to stay grounded all night.  

Magnetico mattress pad can help create a static magnetic field around you mimicking the earths field from centuries ago and possibly protecting you from the cell tower down the road.  

WiFi off at night and cell on airplane mode and into a farday cage pouch so it’s not tracking you and you guarantee no one can turn it on at night and radiate you with the wrong signals. Yup, I do think some companies turn on cell phones for brief milliseconds even when in airplane to download a bit of data on you.. don’t take the risk. 

 

Faraday Cage Bedroom  

We highly recommend sleeping inside a faraday cage. This is material that blocks manmade nnEMF like that from your WiFI, celltowers and your daughters cellphone that’s on all night. To create a primal environment while you sleep, think about investing in a faraday cage for your bed. We use one from Brian Hoyer at Shielded Healing.  

 

 

First thing in the morning when we wake, we get on our blueblockers to avoid signaling our body with the wrong messages.  

Get outside first thing to expose yourself to the electric field and the sun.  

Preferably barefoot on the earth so you can take advantage of the photoelectric effect and absorbing more electrons from the earth while dumping positive charge (inflammation).  

I understand it’s winter in northern climates and this is difficult to be barefoot, and that’s why we’ve sourced these grounding heel straps you can attach to any boot or shoe and be grounded without be barefoot.  They just slip on and off in seconds so you just put them on when you want to ground.  

 

Conclusion 

Get outside as often as possible and remove as many non-native sources of EMF as you can during the day and especially at night.

Best Nightlight for Kids

 

The right type of light at night for your kids is more important than you realize.  

Kids are far more affected by the wrong type of light at night than adults.  

While it’s true that most kids are more resilient than adults, when it comes to light this isn’t the case.  

Using the wrong light at night for your kids can lead to sleep issues and degenerative eye problems.  

Children may be terrified of the dark, but we have fund this is largely because adults light up their rooms at night starting from the time they are babies. Personally, our kids have slept in dark since they were less than a year old and they need to light to go to sleep.  

If you aren’t this lucky and your kids need light to sleep, or you want to light up their hallway or bathroom to ensure safe passage at night, then having the right type of light is critical.  

 What’s Wrong with Light?  

At night, lights harm our melatonin and circadian rhythm. This means kids don’t sleep as well at night if they experience light after sunset.  

In addition to sleep disturbances, light at night has been shown to negatively affect mood the next day.  

Humans have receptors in their eyes for blue frequencies of light. Since most all lightbulbs, phones, TVs, and computers, and night lights contain blue light, we stimulate the receptors in our eyes each night. When this happens, our bodies think it’s daytime. Cortisol, the stress hormone is increased while melatonin, the hormone of darkness, is suppressed. This is a bad combination at night. In adults this light at night is associated with diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and obesity.  

Simply put, seeing light at night, and especially sleeping with lights on in our rooms leads to negative health consequences.  
 
Considerations when choosing night lights 

So, you have decided that your kids can’t sleep without some kind of light, or perhaps you just want a light in the bathroom.  

You want to avoid lights that give off blue light. That doesn’t mean you can just buy any bulb that doesn’t look blue.  

Every light you can buy at your local hardware store has blue light in it. LED and CFL lights have more blue than incandescent lights, even if the light coming out of them looks warm or more yellow.  

We took spectrometer readings of many lights and have not found a conventional light that is free of blue anywhere.  

Remember, the blue in light bulbs, including dim light can lead to circadian rhythm disruptions and possible health concerns.  

You want to find a night light that provides just enough light but not too much. In addition, it needs to be free of blue, and preferably green light. These are the two wavelengths studied and shown to impact circadian rhythm.  

Believe it or not there are pure red lights you can buy.  

These red lights have no blue or green and are just pure red light that has been proven not to destroy melatonin at night. 

Portability 

If you want a light at night that can be moved from place to place or even one used to read books at night, look no further than those from Gembared.com (Discount code SLEEP for 10% off).  

Gembared makes reading lights and portable red light therapy lights. While I wouldn’t use one of their lights as a “nightlight” because they are too bright and used for red light therapy, I would use that same therapy light as my lighting at night and I actually do. A nightlight is something I would use in a hallway for dim light at night, or you could use in your child’s bedroom. While a light is something to light up a room like your living room, kitchen, or dining room.  So while we don’t use nightlights here, we do use Gembared lights to light up our hone after dark in our bedroom and living room.  

For reading at night, they make two portable reading lights that are pure red lights. We use these at night to read and bring then with us when we travel. Our kids use these to read books at night and to navigate their bedrooms.  

In addition, Amazon stocks a pure red plug in night light here that we used to use in our hallway. Now we just use the Gembared Rave light strip (discount code sleep) for our hallway lighting. You can see that in the newspaper article we were featured in here, just look for the photos.  

Brightness  

If you want something with more ambience and slightly less red, you can put a Himalayan salt rock lamp in your child’s room. While this is not as ideal as pure red, since it will still give off some, but not much, blue light, it’s far superior to conventional lights.

Why You're Using Your Cellphone All Wrong

I bet You Don’t know How to Use a Cellphone 

Safely that is.  

Your cellphone is a microwave emitting device.  

Ever stuck your head in a microwave?  

No?  

Seems like a bad idea, right?  

Yet you have no problem holding  your cellphone to your head for hours every single day.  

Some of your even sleep with your cellphone under you pillow.  

Take a look at the safety sticker that’s on your microwave. I don’t have one, but I went to the neighbors and looked at it.  

Now, go and look at the sticker on the back of your WIFI router.  

You will now have a better sense of perspective.  

The frequency emitted by your microwave and by your wifi router are the EXACT same frequencies.  

So, if you don’t want to stick your head in your microwave, and your cellphone and wifi router emit the exact same frequency, what gives?  

Truth  

The truth is that microwave radiation and its effects on human biology has been well studied. In over 5,500 peer reviewed, published papers the truth is laid our in black and white.  

Microwave radiation, like that given off by cellphones affects learning, sleep, mood, behavior, and health.  

Modern humans are bombarded with an astounding 1 quintillion more microwaves today than ever before in human history.  

When you carry a cellphone in your pocket, you are exposing yourself non-stop to the frequency associated with that cellphone.  

Every cellphone or cellphone provider uses a slightly different signal. 1G, 2G, 3G, 4G, and now 5G all use different frequencies to connect.  

Because the frequencies are all different and each frequency has a slightly different effect and each human has more or less susceptibility to any particular frequency, it is hard to nail down that cellphones are negatively affecting us because each human, carrying a different frequency around will have a different effect from that.  

One person may have an issue with their eyes while another gets cancer. These frequencies affect us differently. One thing that is not in question based on centuries of research is that wireless radiation absolutely affects biology.  

Safe Use Instructions  

Oddly, your cellphone doesn’t come with safe use instructions. HOWEVER, it does tell you right in the safety/regulatory manual that touching your cellphone while it’s turned on violates the safety requirements.  

Read that again!  

Touching your cellphone while in use specifically stated to be avoided for safe use.  

I bet none of your has read that part of your cellphone manual.  

So… if you can’t touch your cellphone while it’s turned on, what do you do?  

 

Wireless radiation affects can be mitigated with 3 key strategies. Follow these and you will minimize your exposure to harmful man-made EMF.  

 

Time 

The less time you are exposed to microwaves, the better.  

Use your phone, WIFI, and Bluetooth for as little time as possible.  

Spend as little time in high EMF environments. These are places like coffee shops and even your office where high powered WIFI is pumped out for everyone to use.  

When I’m at corporate headquarters bathed in junk light and wifi, I make sure to spend as little time inside as possible. If I can work, meet, and take my lunch outside, I will.  

 

Distance 

Wireless radiation diminishing quickly with distance.  

There is a law called the inverse square law that is applied to wireless radiation. This means that for every 1X increase in distance from the source there is a 10X drop in the intensity of the radiation.  

Position yourself as far as possible away from a microwave radiation source. Even a few inches can make a huge difference.  

If you can’t turn off a wireless source of radiation, move as far away from it as possible.  

When a friend of mine measured the WIFI radiation in her son’s high school she found that just moving desks from under the WIFI router that was installed on the ceiling to a desk 5 seats away dropped the radiation levels by more than 10X.  

 

Blocking  

Obviously the best way to reduce wireless radiation is to turn it off. Most of us can’t do that completely. Though we do more than most people, which I’ll explain below.  

When you can’t turn off the wireless, you can block it.  

Microwave radiation can be blocked by metal.  

There are faraday cages you can put your wifi router into and it will significantly reduce the radiation. It will not block all the wifi or else your devices would not be able to connect to it. These are metallic cages with enough gaps in the metal screen to allow some of the wifi out but at significantly reduced signal power.  

You can buy a faraday cage (LINK) for your phone. These are metal lined pouches that block all radiation going to and coming from your phone. These are great if you have someone in your family sleeping with their phone or if you want to be absolutely protected from your phone.  

We keep our phones in the pouches while we sleep even when they are in airplane mode. We know that people have been measuring wireless radiation from their phones even when in airplane mode. This is likely due to software companies calling for private data about you to be sent to the cloud all the time as well as reveal your location. We do not consent to this and therefore keep our phones in pouches so they cannot connect to the cloud or spray us with radiation while we sleep.  

In addition, we take it a step further by surrounding our bed in a faraday cage. While we can turn off our wifi and cellphones at night, we cannot stop the cellphone tower from sending radiation into our bedroom while we sleep.  

Actually, we can stop it by surrounding our bed with metal mesh fabric. This blocks the radiation from our “sleep chamber”.  

Whenever we fly or travel, we always wear our Primalhacker EMF blocking hoodies. It’s impossible to get away from wireless when traveling and thus we do our best to reduce what we’re exposed to as much as possible.  LINK 

You can also mitigate some of the radiation given off by your laptop while on wifi by using one of these products from Harapad.  

Blocking wireless radiation is often our best choice these days when we cannot get away from it. 

 

Airplane Mode 

Your cellphone, tablet, and laptop all have airplane Mode.  

Use it! 

Whenever you are not downloading messages or making a phone call, turn your devices onto airplane mode.  

Don’t forget that when your laptop is connected to a LAN line, you need to enable airplane mode. Otherwise it’s still pinging wifi every once in a while for no reason.  

If you have your cellphone in your pocket, put it in airplane mode.  

This is why we have voicemail and texts.  

I modified my voicemail message to state that I do not listen to voicemail, honestly who has time for that.  

I ask callers to send me a text.  

When I pop my phone out of airplane mode and download data, I see the texts and call back whoever I need to. I am not on call 24/7.  

Airplane mode will disable your WIFI, cellphone, cell data, and Bluetooth.  

It will not disable the GPS. GPS is always on. You can convince yourself of this by using maps on your phone and then turning your phone to airplane mode. The maps will keep up just fine.  

Be careful though, because some people turn their phones to airplane mode and the wifi or Bluetooth is still on. Check to make sure these are actually turned off when your phone is in airplane mode.  

One phone hack is to only have the wireless on that you need. Instead of ALWAYS having Bluetooth, Cell Service, and WIFI on all the time, just turn on the one that you need.  

Each of these is a separate antenna microwaving you. Turn on only the antenna you actually need.  

 

Hardwire 

You can get rid of wireless at your home.  

We have “hardwired” our home. Here’s an article we wrote detailing how we did this without pulling wire through walls.  

HERE's OUR ARTICLE ON HARDWIRING 

Here is a video showing you how to disable the WIFI on your router.  

Go into your router settings and disable the WIFI.  

Get a LAN cable and connect all your devices to the wired cables. Your TV, video game console, cellphones, and laptops will all connect to a wired connection.  

The best part isn’t just that you’ll be protected from the wireless radiation but wired connections are faster than wireless.  

 

Stop being EMF’d.  Adopt some or all of the suggestions above to improve your health.  

 

A Blue Light Supplement to Protect the Eyes

If you've heard about the damage blue light can do to your eyes, then you'll be excited to learn there is a new product that was built to mitigate the blue light damage caused by our devices and LED home and office lighting. 

We're a Device Centric Culture

Wow, if we thought time spent indoors and on devices was increasing before, what just happened in 2020 was a showstopper. We spent all of 2020 mostly indoors and more connected to a device than ever before. Well, those of you out there that didn't take advantage of the empty parks and woods to get out constantly :)

In general people spend over 95% of their time indoors. Between cars, work, gym, store, and home we're larger indoors under junk lighting and connected to devices. 

What's the Downside?

Now, being on devices a lot means our eyes take a beating. We're looking at screens that are close to our eyes, which is stressful to the eye. Looking further away is relaxing to the eye. 

In addition, the high intensity blue light can be harmful to the eye. Without the red and infrared light (which is present along with blue from the sun) we don't receive the antidote to the blue.  most indoor lighting and device lighting is free of infrared and has little red compared to blue light. 

This blue light from devices can cause free radicals to be developed in the eye. Over time, scientists and doctors believe this can cause macular degeneration. 

What Can You Do? 

Wear blue light blocking glasses. Blue light blocking glasses, like those found here, have been shown to protect the eyes from blue light. 

Use Candles at night

Work outdoors

Try the ONLY supplement designed specifically to mitigate the damage to your eyes from blue light

Qualia Vision

 The folks at Neurohacker have done it again. Not only did they invent one of the very best, and the first ever, pre-built nootropic stack, and a longevity supplement, now they have invented a blue light supplement. 

We all know we should be outside ALL DAY. 

And wear blueblockers whenever the sun goes down. 

Most of us do not do this. 

Trust me, I know a lot of biohackers and I can count on one hand how many of them actually wear their blueblockers at night.  I wish more of your would just do that because it makes a HUGE difference. 

So, when you ignore my advice and work on a laptop indoors all day and don't wear your blueblockers at night, there's now a supplement built specifically to mitigate the damage the blue light is doing to your eyes. 

I've been using it for a month and I really like it. 

Way back in 1999 a friend of mine was working on a vision formula at a company in Boulder Colorado. He told me that the #1 ingredient to help vision was Bilberry. Guess what's in Qualia Vision? That's right...

4 Specific Tips To Support Mitochondria And Cellular Health

Almost everyone is familiar with the phrase “mitochondria are the powerhouse of the cell”. 


It’s hard to overstate the importance of our mitochondria. Virtually every biochemical reaction and cellular process in the human body relies on them. Our energy levels, how we age, our exercise recovery times, and virtually any other category of health you can think of, have inexorable links to the health and abundance of our mitochondria. 


But advice on how to support mitochondrial function can be vague. “Diet”, “exercise” and “lifestyle” are obviously involved, but if you’re going to take mitochondrial function seriously, you need greater specifics.


These are specific recommendations for 4 major focuses of mitochondrial support: 


Specific Dietary Tip: Qualia Life + IF


You may already know the immense health benefits that come with intermittent fasting, and  its role in triggering biogenesis of new mitochondria. You also may know that limiting refined carbs (soda, white bread, pastries, etc.) is good for a host of health benefits including mitochondrial function. 


But you may not know that a 36-ingredient beast of a nutritional formula called Qualia Life is specifically designed to optimize mitochondrial function and cellular health. There’s nothing on the market that checks more nutritional boxes for mitochondrial support in one supplement than Qualia Life. 


I've taken Qualia Life for years and the difference it has made to my energy levels and personal training goals have been phenomenal. The company behind it, Neurohacker Collective, is well known for their premium nootropic products such as Qualia Mind, which I can't recommend enough for mental performance. I've gotten to know the Neurohacker team over the years and I was pumped when Qualia Life came out because Neurohacker specializes in very comprehensive formulas. Qualia Life contains NAD+ boosters, polyphenols, adaptogens, ergogenics, antioxidants, you name it. Neurohacker's calling card is how much you can nutritionally accomplish with one supplement.

Specific Exercise Tip: High Intensity Interval Training

Sprinter on a track at sunrise

Needless to say, exercise is vital to mitochondrial production, and any exercise beats none, but if you want the biggest return on exercise training for mitochondrial health, I highly recommend high intensity interval training (often abbreviated as HIIT). A recent study in Cell Metabolism found that HIIT exercise in particular- such as 15 second sprint bursts or 30 second cycling bursts followed by brief recoveries- had the strongest correlations with mitochondrial production. Evidence also shows this is true for strength training exercises such as squat jumps and similar rapid burst exercises followed by brief recovery. 

 

Specific Therapeutic Tip: 30 Seconds Of Cold Shower

The benefits of heat and cold therapies for mitochondrial function- such as sauna, cryotherapy, and outdoor cold exposure- are vast. But for those of you lacking the time, money, or discomfort tolerance to follow through on hardcore cold/heat options, you still have no excuse according to a new finding. A recent study published by Plos One indicates that just 30 seconds of cold shower exposure can deliver significant benefits associated with mitochondrial support. So even if you hate cold therapy, just toughing out a mere 30 seconds at the end of your shower can deliver big benefits to mitochondrial function (and beyond). And don't forget that even walking outside for a few minutes in winter without a jacket is considered cold therapy!

 

Specific Lifestyle Tip: Ritualize Relaxation

Man sitting on top of mountain

After asking you to do high intensity exercises and cold therapies, this last tip is the gentlest of them all- relax! Stress hormones can negatively alter mitochondrial function, so any daily practice that prioritizes relaxation- from meditation to massage to nature immersion- is actually serving an important role in overall mitochondrial health. How you reach a relaxation state is less important than the fact that you do. Maintain that state for at least 30 to 60 minutes a day, taking it just as seriously as exercise, nutrition, or biohacking therapies. 

 

From nutrition, to exercise, to therapeutics, to lifestyle, those are 4 specific actions you can take today to address mitochondrial health in a comprehensive way.
