Top 7 Gift Ideas: Cornerman Style

Brain candy. Evolve Your Brain. Your mind plays a major role in your health. One of the most powerful things you can do in your journey is harnessing the power of your thoughts. Joe Dispenza, author, and fellow chiropractor, gives a pretty heavy lesson on neurology in the beginning but as the book progresses he gives practical examples and methods to help you keep your mind right. Dispenza has several books on thoughts and mindset. Evolve Your Brain was a game changer for healing my Achilles rupture, especially the 1.5 days following the injury when my mind was in the dumps.

Instant Pot. Healthy meals are non-negotiable for the most part and there’s a common misconception that healthy foods take hours to make. You don’t have time, I get it! Your crazy ass doctor expects you to work out for 30-60 minutes a day, sleep for 9 hours per day, and meditate for 20 minutes per day so you don’t 3 hours a day to spend in the kitchen like Rachael Ray. The Instant Pot allows you to load it up, set the timer, then come back when you’re ready. If you cook for the fam, great! Just load it up and let it roll. I use the Instapot at almost every meal.

One of my faves is the bone broth and kale tandem in the pot. If you’re feeling adventurous you can throw in some ginger root or turmeric root to spice things up a bit. The kale cooks by the steam from the broth and any nutrients that are liberated from kale through the cooking process trickle into the broth. Set the timer for 1 minute and in less than 10 minutes it’s ready to go. While it’s cooking, you can get a 15-minute breathwork session at sunrise. The Instant Pot affords you more time since you don’t have to attend to your food like sauteeing kale in a skillet.

Mack Weldon, Pima Cotton shirt. Hold on! Before you start thinking it’s like your little league Hanes Beefy-T baseball jersey from 4th grade, these shirts are as soft as unicorn fur. It feels more like a tri-blend shirt without the synthetics. I’m a freak about how things feel and fit and Mack put it all together. I also like to avoid synthetic fibers when possible. When synthetic fibers rub together with many materials they create a charge which produces EMF leading to change in your cells’ function. If you need hard evidence, take off your tri-blend (cotton, polyester, rayon) shirt in the dark and you’ll see sparks fly. Polyester is a radon gas magnet and you wear it, radioactivity increases around your skin. If you have lung issues, you’ll want to take this even more seriously as radon exposure is a major cause of lung cancer second to smoking.  This applies to anything that you wear, including your underwear. Keep the guys down there happy. Throw on one of Mack’s v-necks with a pair of jeans and Chuck’s or J’s, or however you roll. Drip, drip. You’ll have 2 times the swag of Floyd.

 

Salt rock lamp. They clean the air a little but they look cool and they filter some of the crappy blue light. Go for one of the darker and more red ones to filter blue more. Use a red bulb for even more protection from the detrimental short wavelengths of visible light like blue light. The salt rock lamps can work as a transition for you until you’re ready for caveman candlelight. Salt rock lamps filter some blue light depending on their color but modern lightbulbs like LEDs flicker. The flicker can cause a myriad of issues from the suppression of melatonin to migraines and dizziness. You can test for this flicker from any light by taking a slow-mo video with your phone. At original speed, you won’t see flicker, but when you play it on slow-mo, you’ll see a flicker. Filtering, or even better avoiding, artificial light this winter is imperative for your health and circadian rhythm.

Red glasses. Everyone in the family needs a pair. If my original recommendation of the sexy Dewalts is not your speed, you can get some more swag ones.  This is Cornerman 101–you know!

The sexy reds I wear

If the above reds aren’t your speed, try these

 

Cotton, silk, and wool bedding. Using natural fibers for your bedding should be a priority considering you spend 1/3 of your day in bed and EMF affect your melatonin levels. Thanks to my Canadian friends, Dave, Kimberley, and Kristina, they hooked me up with a new silk pillowcase that feels like I’m sleeping on a cloud. If you’re local to Phoenix, check out the folks at Organic Living for bedding and some other crazy shit that we recommend.

Magnetico Sleep Pad. Sleep like a boss! The first week of sleeping on my Magnetico I had crazy dreams every night. If you live near a big city or suburb or an apartment complex you need one of these. It works by creating a magnetic field around you to protect your cell from the clouds of EMF coming from your neighbor’s WiFi and the cell tower down the road. Because the part of your cell that creates energy relies on an electrical gradient to create ATP (cell energy), the Magnetico’s magnetic field helps support the electrical gradient in your mitochondria. The clouds of the electromagnetic fields that are created from WiFi, smart meters, cell phones, and other modern day tech devices jack up the electrical gradient which slows energy production. The slowing of energy production leads to your metabolism tanking and chronic disease manifestation. EMF, like light, decrease melatonin so get yourself one of these to sleep on at night.

Bonus: Kauai trip. Take a trip to Kaui and hike the Kalalau Trail on Na Pali Coast. You can hike 2 miles into Hanakapi`ai Beach and then another two miles to Hanakapiai Falls. It’s nature at it’s finest. There are a ton of other hiking trails, site-seeing adventures including waterfalls, and of course the beach to chill out and recharge your soul.

Have an awesome weekend!

Your cornerman,
Dr. Thoma
