32+ Zeitgebers (Biological Cues) And How To Enhance Your Circadian Rhythm

Right now as I write this, I am watching the morning sun, sitting on a bench in Dolores Park with my shirt off an laptop out - in 50ºF weather!

Last night I had no sleep as I just traveled from FL to CA and helping my brother pack until 4am… and I woke up around 5am (8am my normal time… thanks jetlag).

That’s why I believe today’s topic of discussion should be circadian rhythm cues, also called Zeitgebers.

Zeitgebers (the German word for “time givers”) are signals that help synchronize the body's circadian clock with the environment.

In this post, we will discuss the most common zeitgebers, how they affect our circadian rhythm, and how we can use them to enhance our sleep, stress, weight, social life, and more.

How To Remove Gadolinium From Brain And Body Tissue

I have visited ERs and hospitals during my adventure to regain my health and have had my fair share of scans.

If you've ever had a MRI with contrast before, then there's likelihood that you have some levels of the lanthanide element gadolinium stored in your body and/or brain. 

In this post, we will discuss the epigenetic effects of gadolinium and some experimental ways to remove it from the body.

How Jet Fumes And Hypoxia On Planes Affect The Body

Hypoxia (loss of oxygen) is a major stressor on the body.

On average, one can live ~21 days without food, ~2 days without water, but only a few minutes without oxygen. R

Most studies review long term exposure of hypoxia, but in this post we will discuss what happens to the body on a cellular level when exposed to hypoxia in the short term, such as flying or space travel (in a non-hormetic way).

Unfortunately, our environment today is very good at manipulating and hijacking our dopamine system.

In this post we will discuss, how/why dopamine is produced, how chronic inflammation affects dopamine, what are some quick fixes for dopamine, and what are some long lasting dopamine builders, as well how to avoid losing dopamine.

Why NRF2 Activation Can Make You More Sick

Recent cancer research has helped us understand how the body detoxes.

By studying upregulated genes in tumorous cells, we were able to find the Nuclear Erythroid 2–Related Factor 2 (NRF2) pathway.

NRF2 is a major transcription factor in detoxing the body and keeping it healthy.

In this post, we will discuss the benefits/downsides of NRF2 activation, as well as why NRF2 may be hurting you more than helping you (and what you can do about it).

Are EMFs Dangerous? Unbiased Science-Based Review of Electromagnetic Fields

Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) are perceived as environmental stressors on living organisms.

But since man-made EMFs are a very new stressor for humans, our cells have not developed proper defensive mechanisms against them. 

For example, EMFs are classified as possibly carcinogenic (cancer causing) as is arsenic, chloroform, cigarettes, DDT, estrogenics, heavy metals, roundup, etc. 

It seems clear that we would not willingly expose ourselves to these other agents, so why would we expose ourselves EMFs?

Is it from digital dementia (using electronics to remember everything for us) or FOMO (fear of missing out)? 

In this post, to simplify everything, I'll try to stay away from quantum physics as much as possible. 😉

I'll also show as unbiased of an opinion of EMFs as possible, but I do give you my opinion towards the end.

I'll also provide ways you can protect yourself from the downsides of EMFs.

Proton Pump Inhibitors Kill Mitochondria And Brain Function

The Actual Dangers of Taking Proton Pump Inhibitors and What You Can Do About It

Proton pump inhibitors are used very commonly by gastroenterologists for anyone with "stomach" issues.

It is probably the first thing they will give a patient before looking further into what the real cause is.

They have serious short-term and long-term downsides and are destroying our brain and our gut.
