Recently, I have been exploring the relationship between sleep, circadian rythms, morning sunlight, blue light (emitted from my computer, iPad and smartphone), and the DHA found in our retinas.
It will be helpful for you to consume some delicious smoked oysters before reading this page as the DHA helps the transcription factors of your hippocampus in the process of creating new memories!
Every day, I try to take the following steps in my daily routine:
- Shortly after waking up, I go outside and stand barefoot in the wet grass while gazing at the sun. I don't look directly at the sun, I kind of look around it. I do this for about 5 minutes. The earth is negatively charged, and by "grounding" myself to the earth, I allow the earth's electrons to flow into my body. Being connected to the earth and the sun simultaneously makes me feel connected to my Higher Power.
Ayurveda - the ancient science of health - has been recommending these circadian rythms-protecting lifestyle habits for 5,000 years, and today modern science is just beginning to explain why these healing modalities work.
- 4 hours before sleep, I wear these red glasses to block blue light emitted from my various electronic devices: iPad, laptops, phones and TV. Exposing the eyes to the blue light produced by these video screens in the evening has a damaging effect on melatonin production by the pineal gland. Maintaining our circadian rythms is important and human beings were never meant to flood their retinas with electronic blue night before sleep.
- I recently started increasing my consumption of seafood, including oysters and sardines, because seafood is an important source of DHA. Better than fish oil supplements which can quickly become rancid.
According to Dr. Jack Kruse, a brilliant neurosurgeon, DHA is the only substance capable of transforming natural light into electricity for the brain . Blue light from electronic devices deplete the DHA in our retinas, which has a far-reaching impact on the mitochondria found in every one of our cells, which in turn affects our mental and physical health. The science behind the process by which blue light toxicity leads to DHA depletion in the retina is quite complex. A good source of information on this topic is jackkruse.com.
Here is a great recipe for smoked oyster spread . I like to have this delicious smoked oyster spread on crackers, celery sticks or cucumber slices:
2 can smoked oysters (3.75 ounces each)
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons olive oil
Pink Himalayan salt (or Redmond Real Salt)
! chunk fresh onion
Red pepper sauce (optional)
In a large bowl, mash smoked oysters together with the other ingredients. Refrigerate for a few hours and enjoy!
Buy my wristband/intranasal full spectrum light device. Made by hand by myself.
