Life Hacking and The Bulletproof Blog

According to the infamous Mr Dave Asprey of the Bulletproof blog and lifestyle, there are a couple of ‘Light Hacks’ to create a better mood, better energy, AND better performance. As always, here at Eyekandi, when it comes down to increasing performance and hacking things, we’re all over it.

And you should be too!

For convenience to our readers, and relevance to our current research and interest in Photobiomodulation and LLLT, we will be focussing on Mr Asprey’s Light Hacks from 7,8 & 10.  Just FYI, his Light Hacks from 1-6 and 9, include the importance of UV rays, vitamin D, light and your eyes, darkness, photon waves and ‘junk light’. And if you’re interested in them, click here to see the full article on the Bulletproof Blog.

Light Hack #7: Use red light for pain, inflammation, and skin

Red light is amazing at recharging your mitochondria. Red light can also stimulate DNA and RNA synthesis, activate the lymphatic system and increase blood flow, which is good for carrying waste from the body and repairing damaged tissue. It can even decrease inflammation and swelling, all the way down to deep tissue.

That means more energy, less pain, and things like faster wound healing. Red light donates photons to your mitochondria via molecules called cytochromes, which allows them to make even more ATP for energy. This provides you with steady energy all day and better sleep at night.

How to use it: Install red lights in and around your home and use them in the early morning, at night, and therapeutically for an increase in mitochondrial function and collagen production.

For collagen synthesis, a couple minutes every day in front of a red light could significantly improve your skin’s tone, texture, redness, and signs of wrinkles and fine lines. You can also find medical-grade LLLT practitioners for a heavier dose of light.

 

Light Hack #8: Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT)

Low-level light therapy or LLLT is like a more intense version of sitting under a red light. This is a cold laser that concentrates light to one area on your body.

Athletes use LLLT for better athletic performance, probably because it increases strength and speeds up muscle recovery. It also helps to heal infections post-surgery, relieves chronic and acute pain (especially in your joints), and decreases inflammation. LLLT increases energy by stimulating mitochondria and boosting ATP production and blood flow. And it contributes to healthy skin by healing scars and burns and decreasing UV damage. Lasers shrink nerve inflammation, so putting an LLLT 3-4 inches above your belly button, right below the rib cage, can help with stomachaches and nausea, as well as an inflamed gut.

How to use it: You can find a practitioner that uses LLLT or buy one yourself. The medical-grade lasers are pretty expensive, but consumer-grade LLLT units run anywhere from a couple hundred to a couple thousand dollars. Eyekandi Life Tech is on the brink of bringing one of these products out into the market.

Light Hack #10: Add infrared light

Sunlight has infrared light, but you won’t get any of it from indoor lighting. You can’t see infrared light, but you can feel it; it is experienced as heat, and it supercharges your mitochondria.

You can get infrared light, which triggers even more energy production from your mitochondria in your eyes and skin, with a healthy dose of sun exposure, in incandescent bulbs (in very small amounts), or with an infrared sauna. Increased mitochondrial function, again, is going to increase blood flow, which is great for nutrient and oxygen transport and also speeds up detox pathways. This is why people are obsessed with infrared saunas.

How to use it: Switch all the bulbs in your house to incandescent, which emit a small amount of infrared. Find an infrared sauna with full-spectrum, near-infrared light. You also want to find one that emits low to no non-native EMFs (electric magnetic fields).

Using Radiation To Lose Fat, Repair Mitochondria & Defend Against Cancer – Dr. Joseph Mercola

PODCAST ALERT – BULLETPROOF RADIO by Mr Dave Asprey and Dr Joseph Mercola

If you’re needing a reason to press play:

Attacking your body with radiation is one of the most efficient ways to help you get rid of fat, repair damaged mitochondria and protect yourself from the dreaded C word (cancer). Dave Asprey welcomes Dr. Joseph Mercola to the Bulletproof Radio, on epsisode #398 to explore the expanding field of red light therapy, aka Photo-Bio-Modulation,  and how it’s helping scientists heal and repair the environmental destruction caused to the human body daily.

Go on, have a listen!

Red Light Therapy Health Benefits and How to Get It

Still wondering about the Red Light Therapy phenomenon?

KEEP READING…

As seen on the Bulletproof Blog, Red light therapy, also known as photo-bio-modulation (PBM), has been around for around 40 years – ever since the invention of lasers.

“Red light therapy uses certain wavelengths of light to restore, repair, and protect tissue that is either injured, degenerating, or at risk of dying. While varying wavelengths affect the body differently, as far as healing with red light is concerned, the most effective wavelengths range from 630-670 and 810-880.”

But this is how it really works…

The PBM wavelengths affect bodily cells on a biochemical level by increasing mitochondrial function. This is the ability to produce energy in the cells. The more that the cells can produce energy, the better the body can function. When red light wavelengths are used on the skin’s surface, they penetrate 8-10 millimetres deep into the skin. So depending upon where the red light is used (head or knee, for instance), all of the surrounding skin layers, blood vessels, lymph pathways, nerves, and even hair follicles are affected.

The Benefits of Red Light Therapy (PBM)

Red light therapy works from the inside-out to enhance and increase mitochondrial function in cells. Therefore this, leads to several skin benefits. Red light reduces skin inflammation, smooths skin tone, repairs sun damage, fades scars and stretch marks, and even builds collagen in the skin which in turn reduces wrinkles. It also heals wounds and can prevent recurring cold sores or herpes simplex (some of us were burdened). PBM works on the lymphatic system to improve your body’s detoxification abilities by increasing blood flow. It may even stimulate hair growth in your hair follicles (check it out ladies!).
