    67. Bioacoustic Biology with Sharry Edwards

    67. Bioacoustic Biology with Sharry Edwards

    On today's episode we are joined by the pioneer of Bioacoustic Biology herself,  Sharry Edwards, to teach us about the link between sound frequency and health. Sharry provides the leading-edge research to show voice as a holographic representation of the body and how it can be used to change the face of medicine.
    Sharry's work shows that we can achieve health and emotional balance through the use of frequency based biomarkers.  Using the unique techniques of Vocal Profiling and evaluation, emotional as well as physiological issues can be revealed and addressed. Sharry's work with the human voice reveals that people who share similar traumas, stresses, diseases, toxicities…share similar, if not identical, vocal anomalies. She brings together ancient knowledge with modern ideas of harmonics and frequency relationship theories to show that math can be used as a form of predictive, diagnostic and curative foundation for wellness.

    62. Red Light Therapy With Dr. Mike Belkowski

    62. Red Light Therapy With Dr. Mike Belkowski

    On today's episode we are talking about a critical aspect of circadian biology, which is light. We have Dr. Mike Belkowski, the founder of BioLight, here to teach us all about red light therapy. This is one of my favorite biohacking subjects, so I really enjoyed "nerding-out" with Dr. Belkowski. I really hope that you enjoy listening to this episode as much as we enjoyed recording it.
    Dr. Mike Belkowski, CEO of BioLight, specializes in dry needling, cupping, blood flow restriction training, Mulligan joint mobilizations and, yes, red light therapy to help his patients achieve pain reduction and recovery as effectively and efficiently as possible. Dr. Belkowski is a voracious reader and is constantly questioning the status quo, especially in the health and wellness sector. He loves to synthesize all of the information from the vast amount of books and research articles he reads and put it to practical use.
    If you feel inspired to grab a BioLight for your red light therapy at home after this episode, you can use code "biocurious" to get 10% off of one. You will find the link below.

    On this episode we discuss:

    Dr. Belkowski's background and how he got started in his field of work

    How red light therapy drives down inflammation and improves circulation

    The synergy between dry needling, cupping, and red light therapy for pain reduction

    Why red light therapy works to help stimulate tissue healing

    Macular degeneration and how red light can help prevent it

    The pairing of red light therapy and stem cell treatments, and why this is beneficial

    The concern with light flickering from LED's and the effect on the brain

    Why buying a low EMF light panel is important

    The ideal treatment time and duration

    The harmful long-term effects of artificial blue light

    The benefits of natural sunlight

    The difference between at home red light panels, and infrared saunas
