Have you ever wondered why you feel so good on hikes?
I know when I go out, it feels almost like there is some magic to being outdoors - I get invigorated, happy, and just feel alive.
Well, there are biological effects to being outside.
This practice of going outside has been thoroughly investigated and given the name “Shinrin-Yoku” in Japan, aka “Forest Bathing”.
In this post, we’re going to discuss Forest Bathing’s scientifically proven benefits, what really is going on from being in nature, and what you can do to biohack its effects (without having to go outside). 😉Read More
This is a simple explanation of the Bredesen Protocol, also known as ReCODE.
It is a cutting edge protocol to reverse Alzheimer's and has been successful for over 250 patients.

We need the sun for many biological processes.
The sun produces ultraviolet (UV) radiation.
UV can cause free radicals in skin cells and this is what causes skin cancer, wrinkles, photo-aging, and sun burns.
This diet will help protect the skin against the damaging effects of UV, without the need for conventional sunscreens.Read More
Not all artificial sweeteners aka (nonnutritive sweeteners (NNSs) or low-calorie sweeteners (LCS)) are bad.
Use of artificially sweetened foods (ASF) has increased in the past 50 years in the USA and there are clear parallels with changes in the prevalence of being overweight and the rise of obesity. R
Just because something is deemed as "safe" by the FDA, does not make it safe for humans.
In this post, I will break down the effects of artificial sweeteners on the body and give an alternative list to which ones are "safer" or even beneficial.Read More
Since the late 1970s, the use of glyphosate-based herbicides (GBHs) has increased approximately 100-fold.
Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Roundup®.
In this post, we will discuss glyphosate's toxic effects (even at extremely low doses).Read More
Arsenic is so common, but it is not talked about much.
It is hidden in our food and supplements, but has devastating effects on the body that we will discuss below.
We will also discuss what you can do to protect yourself from arsenic in our toxic environment.Read More
In this post we talk about what "fake" estrogens (estrogenics) do to the body and how you can protect yourself from the dangers of estrogenics.Read More
In this post we are going to be discussing estrogen receptors and how estrogen affects the body.Read More
The Pharmaceutical Industry "Gateway" Drug
Just because something is sold over the counter doesn't make it safe.
Especially with non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which can cause autoimmune diseases and destroy cells.Read More
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.Read More
Spirulina is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that has properties that can boost the immune system, prevent and kill cancer, protect the heart, liver, lungs, kidneys, eyes, skin, and ears, and can prevent skeletal damage.Read More
Histamine intolerance comes from an imbalance of eaten/produced histamine and ability to break it down.
Mast cells, food poisoning, histamine metabolism/liberators and more can exacerbate histamine intolerance.Read More
Sulforaphane (SFN) is naturally occurring in broccoli sprouts, which has the highest amount of sulforaphane.
Broccoli sprouts contain a particular glucosinolate compound, glucoraphanin, which is found in vacuoles within the cytoplasm of the plant cell.
The membrane of the plant cells also contain an enzyme, myrosinase, which is walled off from the vacuoles of glucoraphanin.
Only when the plant cell is ruptured by cutting/chewing,. do the two substances come into contact with each other.
In the moist environment of the cell, this leads to a chemical reaction wherein the myrosinase converts the glucoraphanin to an isothiocyanate, sulforaphane.
It is also found in cruciferous veggies, such as brussels spout, cabbage, cauliflower, bok choy, kale, collards, Chinese broccoli, broccoli raab, kohlrabi, mustard, turnip, radish, arugula, and watercress.Read More
