Last week Heather from MommyPotamus.com and I had the chance to attend Dave Asprey’s Bulletproof Biohacking Conference in California. We noticed some fun new trends, tried some unusual health treatments and met some incredible people. We also got to try a bunch of treatments that we would never be able to try in the normal course of daily life as moms.
Here are some of our key takeaways…
Biohacking Trends We Noticed
There were dozens of vendors at the conference displaying and demonstrating their products. We were familiar with many of these products already but also found some fun new things to try. There were also some noticeable recurring trends among the vendors.
Red Lights
We saw a LOT of products that involved red light or infrared in some way. We’ve both shared about the benefits of certain types of red lights in our posts about saunas (see Heather’s post here and mine here).
This is the sauna we both have and love.
I’ve also talked about the benefits of Red Light therapy in this podcast and in this blog post. This is the red light I have and use at home.
Wave Vibration
Lots of good vibrations going on at the biohacking conference… literally. There was a definite recurring theme of biohacking with high speed vibrations of different kinds. This included everything from Dave Asprey’s own wave vibration plate to various vibration technology equipment.
We loved the Rapid Release tool that is used by doctors and physical therapists for helping muscle pain and improving mobility. I used it a few times at the conference on my Achilles that has been sore since a really long hike earlier this year and I’ve been pain free ever since.
Another tool I’ve been using lately, (that is much less expensive and also well tested) is the Myobuddy Massager.
Both of these tools work on the fascia and deeper tissue. Athletes use them for recovery and improved muscle performance and those with chronic illnesses can use them for increased lymphatic flow and improved sleep.
Mushrooms
Mushrooms were also a recurring trend at the conference. Certain types of mushrooms like Lion’s Mane, Chaga, Cordyceps and others are well-studied for their brain benefits.
We’ve been drinking mushroom enhanced instant coffee from Four Sigmatic for a long time (use the code “wellnessmama” to get 15% off at this link) and these types of shrooms were showing up at many booths around the conference. In fact, one group even had mushroom printed pants!
