    Grounding, Pt. 4: Incredible Anecdotes & Earthing for Female Health, Athletic Performance & Pet Health

    Grounding, Pt. 4: Incredible Anecdotes & Earthing for Female Health, Athletic Performance & Pet Health

    The series finale on Earthing should be the episode that fully converts you into a full-fledged believer. This week on The Red Light Report you will hear from countless individuals, as they discuss how grounding helped improved their health, wellness, well-being and quality of life over an array of health conditions. The numerous anecdotes I cover will be the proof in the pudding that will take you off the fence, if that is where you are sitting, or just further drive home the point that grounding MUST become a part of your daily (in a perfect world, hourly and/or continuous) health regimen going forward.
    There are also a couple of enlightening sections towards the end of the book that cover grounding and its connection to ameliorating female health, athletic performance and pet health. These three sections clearly demonstrate how versatile and instrumental Earthing is to our wellness and the health of all living creatures on the planet. From an analytic perspective, it coherently substantiates how being disconnected from the very Earth we live on is potentially the most dastardly self-inflicted wound we impose on our health and wellbeing. In the end, I hope you all walk away from this solosode series with a greater reverence for the perpetual healing force that is just outside your door in the grass; that you are constantly surrounded by an overabundance of free electrons that your body can use to heal and thrive; and that it is typically just on the other side of the non-conductive rubber in your shoes and the sole of your feet. Enjoy, learn lots and light up your health!

    Grounding, Pt. 3 - Earthing 101 & How it Regulates the Nervous System, Heart & Blood Pressure

    Grounding, Pt. 3 - Earthing 101 & How it Regulates the Nervous System, Heart & Blood Pressure

    With cardiovascular disease continually on the rise and high blood pressure being one of the most important risk factors for the disease, hypertensive medications continue to skyrocket. While there is a type and place for pharmaceuticals, this does not address the issue at its root cause. This week on The Red Light Report we will learn how Earthing may be THE best anti-hypertensive remedy available; not to mention, it's 100% natural and has no negative side effects. Simply by connecting to the earth and it's perpetual source of free electrons, mother nature literally thins your blood (only if it's necessary to reach homeostasis), which automatically reduces the stress on your cardiovascular system and normalizes blood pressure. Again, that is sans medication!​​We will also continue to learn more specifics about grounding, such as how long it takes to see results, what types of mediums are conductive versus insulating, what zeta potential is (and why that is an important metric), other impacts of grounding on cardiovascular health along with a couple of anecdotes that put the proof in the proverbial (grounding) pudding.
    Again, if you are interested in adding grounding to your indoor health regimen (and I firmly believe everybody should!), I highly recommend checking out grounding products from the company Earthing. It's a Clint Ober company and where I got my grounding mattress pad and mats for my desk and living room/dining room. And in less than two weeks, my body and mind are already reaping the benefits. To me, it's one of the best investments in your overall health...Brownie points if you listen to this episode while grounded. Enjoy, learn lots and light up your health!

    Grounding, Pt.2 — Connecting the Dots to How Earthing Heals Your Entire Body

    Grounding, Pt.2 — Connecting the Dots to How Earthing Heals Your Entire Body

    Are you feeling grounded yet?! If you haven't felt the gravitational pull to start Earthing (outdoors or indoors) just yet, perhaps this week's solosode on The Red Light Report will provide you with the conviction necessary to get your toes in the grass (or on a grounding mat, like me, if you are strapped to a desk for too many hours of the day). 
    Last week was a great introduction to grounding/Earthing where we laid a great foundation on the basics and fundamentals. Hopefully, it got the wheels turning in your head and brought some awareness to how disconnected we are from the ground of the earth we walk on every single day. In today's episode, we will connect the dots and dig even deeper into the multitude of ways that grounding can have a profound impact on your health. As part of that, you will learn how grounding may be the best EMF protection you could ask for  —  and that's on top of filling you up with free electrons!Lastly, I have been getting inundated with which grounding products are best or which grounding products I love best. Personally, I purchased my products from the company Earthing and I undeniably felt (both mentally and physically) phenomenal results in less than five days of commencing my indoor grounding! So I highly, highly recommend their products. And, in my opinion, a grounded mattress pad is a must!Without further ado, learn lots and light up your health!

    Grounding, Pt. 1 — Is Earthing the Best Anti-Inflammatory in the World?

    Grounding, Pt. 1 — Is Earthing the Best Anti-Inflammatory in the World?

    Happy New Year everybody and welcome to 2023! It feels nice to turn the page onto a new year and start fresh with a clean slate, revitalized and with endless possibilities. To begin this year on The Red Light Report, I am feeling pulled and magnetized into a slightly different direction than our usual red light therapy talk. But don't worry, the topic will still be light- and health-centric, albeit from a slightly different angle. Instead of looking above to our light source, we will be focusing towards the ground for this healing source of photonic and electromagnetic energy: grounding.
    Commonly called Earthing, grounding has been an available source of energy to our cells (from an evolutionary perspective) as long as the sun; perhaps, that is why is has such a powerful affect over our biology. Ironically, just as we have disengaged ourselves from consistent sun exposure (mal-illumination, anyone?) we have ignorantly disconnected ourselves from the very planet we live on. Consider this: the mere rubber between our feet and the surface of the earth may be the largest culprit of modern day chronic health diseases and cancer. Seem far-fetched?During this three-part solosode series, I will be unpacking some of the most important health information you can hear at this moment in time from the book, Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever. Throughout this series, you will learn that, like optimizing your light environment, it is the act of simply becoming aware and consistently applying this free "treatment" (of grounding) to your health regimen that could have life-changing results for you, family members and/or friends. Like red light therapy, the list of health conditions that can be mitigated, prevented and even reversed with grounding are endless.
    I couldn't be more excited to get this information out to you all and begin 2023 off on the right foot  — preferably, both feet on the ground absorbing earth's free electrons. Brownie points if you listen to this episode while grounding... Sit back, learn lots and light up your health!

    Optimizing Anti-Aging & Longevity via Supplements & Adjuvants w/ Sandra Kaufmann, MD [Top Interview of 2022!]

    Optimizing Anti-Aging & Longevity via Supplements & Adjuvants w/ Sandra Kaufmann, MD [Top Interview of 2022!]

    Like last week, we are going to revisit one of the top two interviews from 2022. This conversation was with my most (personally) anticipated interview, Dr. Sandra Kaufmann. I fell in love with her first anti-aging book from several years ago and then fell in love again when she released her newest book this summer. She is a highly-respected expert in the longevity community and she didn't disappoint in this interview. Enjoy learning from Dr. Kaufmann...The author of one of my all-time favorite books recently released her second book, which was like Christmas coming early for me! Luckily, I had also met her before at an anti-aging conference and we have stayed in touch throughout the years. So I knew I had to Dr. Sandra Kaufmann on The Red Light Report for some amazing conversation about anti-aging and longevity strategies, especially as it relates to supplements and adjuvants —  topics that she is considered a bonafide expert. In her newest book, Aging Solutions, Dr. Kaufmann covers 28 different agents that she has found to be the most efficacious and backed by science, according to her rigorous research. We cover many agents from both of her books along with Dr. Kaufmann's skincare routine and other longevity hacks she as implemented over the years, including red light therapy!Dr. Sandra Kaufmann began her academic career in the field of cellular biology, earning a Master’s Degree from the University of Connecticut in Tropical Ecology and Plant Physiology. Turning to medicine, she received her medical Degree at the University of Maryland, and completed a residency and fellowship at Johns Hopkins in the field of pediatric anesthesiology. She has been the Chief of Pediatric Anesthesia at the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital for 9 years, a nationally recognized center of excellence. Dr. Kaufmann's avid interest in the science of anti-aging begun many years ago as an intense hobby. Utilizing her knowledge in cell biology, human pharmacology and physiology, this hobby has now become a main focus. The project represents years of non-clinical research leading to the first ever, comprehensive theory of aging. She has now released two books on longevity: The Kaufmann Protocol: Why We Age and How to Stop it, and just recently in 2022, Aging Solutions.
     
    This conversation could have easily gone on for hours and hours, as Dr. Kaufmann is a wealth of knowledge in some of my favorite topics and is fun to listen and learn from. I know you will all enjoy learning from her like I did and, if so, I highly recommend you check out BOTH of her books. They are simply amazing resources of anti-aging/longevity information. As always, light up your health!

    Quantum Health: Light, (Exclusion Zone) Water & Magnetism w/ Carrie Bennett [Top Interview of 2022!]

    Quantum Health: Light, (Exclusion Zone) Water & Magnetism w/ Carrie Bennett [Top Interview of 2022!]

    For the last two episodes of the year I thought it would be fun to revisit the top two interviews of 2022! And they are not the top two because I said so, but rather because they were the two most downloaded episodes — you, the audience, have spoken! Genuinely, my conversation with Carrie Bennett was easily one of my favorites, so it is always nice when that resonates with the listeners as well. Enioy learning (or reviewing) health from a quantum perspective..."Electrons! Electrons! Come get your electrons!" I love when I path crosses with someone that likes to nerd out on mitochondrial health, but especially from the quantum point of view! On this week's episode of The Red Light Report, I was lucky enough to sit down with the brilliant Carrie Bennett, who knows her quantum health inside and out. Not only that, but Carrie is able to take these complex topics and simplify them so anyone and everyone can understand. As you can see from the episode description below, we cover a smorgasbord of quantum health topics, especially how health is impacted by light, water and magnetism.Even though it can be intimidating, it behooves everyone to take a dive deep into health from a quantum perspective. This is truly where the root causes of disease are buried -- deep down at the subatomic level. But as Carrie acknowledges, even though the topics can get a little complex, the solutions are extremely straightforward. And who doesn't like simple, actionable strategies for optimizing wellness and bolstering one's healthspan?
     

    As a college athlete, supposedly at the pinnacle of health, Carrie began suffering chronic joint issues and insomnia.  After her first child was born she developed debilitating stomach pain, adrenal fatigue, and brain fog.

     
    Armed with a BS in Biology, an MS in Nutrition, certifications as a personal trainer, massage therapist, breathing coach, and faculty member of the Quantum Biology Collective, Carrie's mission is to teach her clients how to create a healing environment.
     
    By applying quantum health strategies involving morning sunlight, circadian rhythm, grounding, mitochondrial support, cold therapy, sleep and intermittent fasting clients feel powerful healing and lasting benefits.
     
    This episode is wall-to-wall full of incredibly profound health information. It may be an episode you want to listen to multiple times to fully grasp the knowledge that Carrie shares with us. In fact, I highly recommend you do, as the implications of applying these quantum health strategies are far-reaching. Carrie is sure to give you an entirely new perspective on what it means to be healthy. Enjoy and learn lots!
