The podcast is sponsored by BLUblox. I have become so passionate about light optimization recently, and filtering out computer light and blue light entirely after the sun sets. I wasn’t doing anything about this until about a year ago, and I was experiencing eye strain, migraines, and an unexplained wired and tired feeling, especially at night. Now I wear BLUblox computer filter glasses anytime I’m looking at screens, and BLUblox sleep lenses at night, and I haven’t experienced symptoms since.
BLUblox was created because they saw the need for a product that was exactly in line with the peer reviewed academic literature. There are a lot of cheaply made lenses out there that don’t actually block all the blue and green light. Don’t waste your time on that, go to blublox.com/wellfed, and use the code WELLFED for 15% off.
This podcast is sponsored by Joov Red Light Therapy! Red light therapy is a simple, non-invasive treatment that delivers concentrated natural light to your skin and cells. Red light therapy is quick and easy: all you have to do is sit or stand in the light for 5 to 15 minutes, ideally every day. This gives the mitochondria in your cells the natural light they need to make the energy that powers your body.
Friends, I have recently become painfully aware of how light can impact overall health. I was on blue light overload and struggling with weekly migraines, sleep issues, and chronic infections, and it led me to finally try Joovv red light therapy.
There was no bigger skeptic than me on this. But I have seen a dramatic shift in my health since using my Joovv device daily, specifically my migraines have completely disappeared, and I’ve also noticed more consistent, deeper sleep, and less fatigue. I’ve also rebound very quickly from infections, and, I haven’t had anxiety like I would expect during this sort of crazy time in our world.
You guys know I don’t do anything unless it’s worth it, and unless I’ve done my research. There are literally thousands of clinical studies on red light therapy, and the research continues to grow as more and more people are becoming aware of its proven benefits.
By stimulating energy production in the body and improving mitochondrial function, studies show red light therapy reduces inflammation, it speeds up muscle recovery and aids in the healing of injury, and it can significantly improve sleep, circadian rhythms, and overall mood, including anxiety and depression.
