Biohacking Your Life To Survive In the Digital World.

  1. 1. Bio-Hacking Your Life To Survive In the Digital World. Ben Greenfield / BenGreenfieldFitness.com
  2. 2. How’s Your Home?
  3. 3. Mold & Mycotoxins
  4. 4. Mold & Mycotoxins Keep house dust to a minimum /HEPA filter Use a dehumidifier in mold-prone rooms Operate an oscillating fan in the bathroom after showering and fix or caulk any leaks as soon as possible Regularly clean surfaces where mold usually grows Be conscious of toxins in carpeting Seal or replace particleboard walls, floors or cabinets Avoid any synthetic, strong-smelling plywood, fiberglass, fiberboard and paneling Blood mold test BenGreenfieldFitness.com/BenRecommends
  5. 5. EMF
  6. 6. EMF Unplug router Limit artificial light Use Biomat sleep pad or an Earthpulse Use dirty electricity filters Use an airtube headset on phone Keep your cell phone or laptop several inches away from skin Use EMF blocking pad such as a Harapad to block radiation. Avoid using cell phone when signal is weak
  7. 7. Water
  8. 8. Water Water Filter Option #1: Install a reverse osmosis system for the drinking water in your home. (option add carbon filter, then remineralize water) Water Filter Option #2: Use a whole house structured water system. Use a showerhead/bathhead filter Avoid plastic bottled water and use BPA free containers
  9. 9. Chlorine
  10. 10. Chlorine Use ozonated or saline systems when possible When you do swim: 2-5 daily grams of Whole Foods Vitamin C 2000-4000IU of Vitamin D 10-20iu of a natural source of Vitamin E such as d-alpha-tocopherol (I recommend SuperEssentials fish oil for this) a serving of a full spectrum antioxidant such as Lifeshotz.
  11. 11. Household Cleaning
  12. 12. Household Cleaning Baking Soda – cleans and deodorizes. Soap – unscented natural soap in liquid form, flakes, powders or bars is biodegradable and will clean just about anything. Lemon – a natural acid that is effective against most household bacteria. Borax – Cleans, deodorizes, disinfects, softens water, cleans wallpaper, and is good for cleaning painted walls and floors. Washing Soda – also known as “SAL Soda” - cuts grease, removes stains, softens water, cleans wall, tiles, sinks and tubs. White Vinegar – cuts grease, removes mildew, odors, some stains and removes wax build-up. Cornstarch – can be used to clean windows, polish furniture, shampoo carpets and rugs
  13. 13. Plastics
  14. 14. Plastics Limit use of plastic bottles. Be aware of other common sources of BPA (e.g. stay away from children’s toys marked with a “3” or “PVC.”) Replace your plastic shower curtains. Use cast iron cookware - avoid non stick pans, pots, bakeware and utensils. Rather than dry cleaning, use wet. Tell your dry cleaner not to use the plastic wrap or remove it as soon as possible. Let your dry cleaning air out (preferably outside) before you put it away.
  15. 15. Pesticides and Herbicides
  16. 16. Pesticides and Herbicides Avoid the “Dirty Dozen” Wash in vinegar if necessary Use organic fruit/vegetable/juices/wines Choose organic meats Natural lawn fertilizer Detox once a year
