In the midst of the holidays, our minds turn to things that we are grateful for, including our friends, family, and good health. In this edition of the Biohacking Box I wanted to share things that can protect these things. Inside you’ll find an assortment of tech and items that can help with eliminating toxins around the home. In this season of giving, these items can also make for great gifts that show your loved ones that you care for their well-being.
Router Guard from Smart Meter Guard
EMFs and radiation from smart electronic devices are becoming a huge issue around the home, with few solutions for protecting yourself and your family. I was excited to find this tiny company that produces Faraday Cages for WIFI Routers and Smart Meters, and to be able to include this in the box for you. Faraday Cages are named for the English scientist that invented them in 1836, and this simple technology shields you from the radiation emissions from your router without blocking the WiFi signal. You can also put one by your bed for your phone at night to keep the EMFs from disrupting your sleep.
LED Teeth Whitening System by Primal Life Organics
The desire for whiter teeth has led many people to use whitening strips that contain toxic chemicals, including the same stuff that are found in commercial floor cleaners. My good friend Trina Felber from Primal Life Organics has a non-toxic solution with this whitening system that utilizes activated charcoal gel and light therapy without the use of peroxide and other bleaching agents. The whitening system plugs directly into your phone so you can use it while on the go, and it gets the job done in about 10 minutes per day. Trina is one of the foremost experts on holistic skincare, and I use many products from the Primal Life Organics line in my daily hygiene regimen.
Mold is an issue that is near and dear to my heart, and Homebiotic is a product I’ve used for years to defend my home and all Bulletproof locations from mold growth. Homebiotic is essentially a probiotic for your home. The formula contains healthy bacteria that prevent the growth of mold and mildew before they can become a problem. The spray is eco-friendly, colorless, odorless, and safe for your family and pets. Spraying regularly is equivalent to giving your home it’s own immune system as a living first line of defense.
Nutrasporin by 3rd Rock Essentials
When it comes to creams and ointments, I live by the mantra “if you wouldn’t put it in your mouth, you shouldn’t put it on your skin”. While other antibiotic ointments use toxic chemicals, Nutrasporin is a food-grade edible gel that utilizes chelated silver oxide to eliminate essentially all infectious bacteria. This non-antibiotic ointment can be used on cuts and scratches, and has even been shown to be effective at treating things like UTI’s. We included the water soluble version in the box for you, but 3rd Rock has a water resistant version as well, and they have safe, food-grade alternatives to many other common skincare products available on their site.
Beeswax Food Wraps by Bee Wild
The vast majority of food storage containers are made from toxic plastics. Clean alternatives are hard to come by, but these hand-crafted wraps use natural, sustainable ingredients such as unbleached cotton, beeswax, and jojoba oil. Beeswax and resin have natural anti-bacterial properties and are used by bees and trees as a form of defense against harmful microbes. Coconut oil is antiviral and antimicrobial as well. These wraps are washable and reusable, and 100% biodegradable for when you want to dispose of them. Use them to wrap food directly, or to cover bowls and dishes in the place of plastic wraps and foils.
Golden Ticket Item ChiliPad
The ChiliPad is a state-of-the-art sleep optimizer that regulates the surface temperature of your mattress to produce a more comfortable and beneficial microclimate. The device works by actively circulating water through a network of microtubes instead of relying on fans, gels, or foams. Some scientists are starting to believe that sleep temperature is more important than sleep duration. Studies have shown that using an optimal sleep temperature can increase metabolism, improve muscle recovery, and increase the amount of deep sleep. This is definitely one of the most impactful sleep-enhancing pieces of tech I’ve come across over the years.
