#123: Low Back Issues, Fitness and Injury Prevention, & Improving Chronic Pain with Dr. Scott Mills


Back in Control: A Surgeon’s Roadmap Out of Chronic Pain


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, and use the code WELLFED for 15% off.


The podcast is sponsored by Alen BreatheSmart Air Purifiers. 

Spring will be here before we know it, and for many people that means runny noses and watery eyes. Along with vacuuming, and keeping doors shut during peak pollen times, an air purifier can really help to combat allergens, which keeps your immune system and your body healthy.

Clean air is also essential for overall wellness, and cleaning your indoor air is actually proven to improve your sleep quality, allergies, and immune system.

Alen has True HEPA (or High Efficiency Particulate Air) filtration, which is the world’s most effective means of purifying indoor air. Alen’s medical-grade True HEPA (H13) filtration removes 99.99% of airborne particles down to 0.1 microns——including allergens, dust, mold, bacteria, aerosolized viruses, and more.

Alen is based in Austin, Texas. Their advanced smart sensor technology always lets you know the status of the air quality around you with vivid LED color rings.  And when harmful particles like allergens, aerosolized viruses and VOCs are detected, auto-mode can automatically adjust purifying power to keep your air pure 24/7.  

It’s so quiet, you don’t hear it, and cycles all the air in your room every 30 minutes on the highest setting.

To learn more, go to, and then use our code WELLFED for 10% OFF. That’s a huge discount, especially on some of the larger room purifiers. They have the industry’s first and only lifetime warranty, meaning if something goes wrong and they can’t help you fix it, it will be replaced for free. You also will get FREE shipping, and they have a 60 days love it or return it guarantee.
