Healthy Red Light, Your Circadian Rhythm, and more Quantum Biology:
SPECIAL Timing Note: We originally recorded this episode in October 2021.

Timestamped Show Notes:
00:30 - Introduction
11:00 - The absolute most all encompassing aspect of that is the light that we're under. So if it's not totally dark, when you're sleeping, your body knows. Our bodies, even if you're covering your eyes, your body can tell that the light is there, because every single cell in our body is being programmed by that light. So I've done all these things and then like drinking a Red Bull before you go to bed, right?
21:50 - One of the things I was learning was the importance of being in the sun for making vitamin D. I knew you couldn't make vitamin D in the winter and a lot of places, but I'd never thought much about it beyond that. I gave my kids a supplement, because the pediatrician told me to and that was kind of it. So I downloaded the D minder app, which tells you where the sun is in the sky, and it geo locates you and tells you how much vitamin D you can make on that day, depending on where you are.
32:15 - I love it. That's beautiful, Scott, and that's exactly it, right? It goes back to what we were saying before. You can take really good care of yourself. But then if you go to bed in a pile of asbestos, everything you've done that day is not going to save you right. So it's if not taking care of our light is like I would say as toxic as sleeping in a pile of asbestos.
40:45 - You do want to be getting some blue light during the day. That's the reason the darker the lenses, the more blue light is being blocked. There is no blue light in nature after sunset. There is blue light present in nature, during the day, especially around high noon. However, the natural light that you get from the sun, while it contains some of the blue spectrum, you never get just the blue on its own. It's always balanced out with some orange and some yellow and some red. I mean, it's the Sci Fi like it's not blue. So high noon, when you when it's like that really bright, intense light, that's when you have the most blue light present and the least red and then sunrise and sunset. Obviously, it flips around and the blue almost disappears. So if you were nighttime blue blockers during the day, you're still messing up your circadian rhythm. Because you're, you're telling it there's no blue light, which will trick your body, it'll make you sleepy.
50:20 - I have my red light on. So if there's decent quality and then this, I like that. So that's from a company called EMR tech. Yet these are those nice little lens. So it's not like a full red light panel where you can lay in front of it. and do your whole body. They do have those too.

Our Final Words of the Show:
I'm gonna go back to when I was at when I asked the doctors, when this type of information would make it into med school. And they said if if it ever does, it'll be another 15-20 years. And what I've realized through my research is there's something called the translational gap, when new information or a new discovery is validated and real. But there's, there's a lag between when it has been discovered, like say penicillin, and when it's something that's actively prescribed through the medical system. And we're in that gap right now with this type of information. And that gap is being filled with things like this podcast, and listening to this podcast and having mentors like you, and being people who are willing to take a risk and do their own research. We're shifting the paradigm and closing that gap faster, if it would you and maybe wouldn't even ever get closed. So I just want to say that what you do, and the people who listen to this podcast, it really matters.
