Review of the Rhinomed Mute Nasal Dilator

Rhinomed Mute

I’m going to let you all in on a secret: I’m a snorer.  It’s not something I’m proud of and it’s definitely something I wish I didn’t do, but it is what it is.  I snore.

The BJJ Cavewife has told me that I snored before and I always nodded politely… but since it wasn’t something I could really observe myself, I didn’t really believe her.

There were times when I was just about to fall asleep and she would push my shoulder telling me that I was snoring.  In my mind I was still awake and wasn’t making a peep, so I would just turn away politely if not a little grumpily, and go back to sleep… still not believing her.… Read More

VSL#3 Probiotic Review

VSL3-1

I wrote a little bit about why I incorporated VSL#3 Probiotic into my anti-cholesterol game plan, but I wanted to take the chance here to expand on why I like it so much.

I discovered this probiotic through a paper Gracie Liu Pharm D. shared with me titled, Effect of Probiotic (VSL#3) and Omega-3 on Lipid Profile, Insulin Sensitivity, Inflammatory Markers, and Gut Colonization in Overweight Adults: A Randomized, Controlled Trial, in which they concluded that supplementation with this specific probiotic lead to a whole host of benefits.… Read More

Cheaper Alternatives to Blood Ketone Testing

Blood Ketone Strips

I’ve had a couple readers reach out to me asking if there were any cheaper alternatives to blood ketone testing.  My most recent check on Amazon.com shows the Precision Xtra Blood Ketone strips going for a whopping $4-$5 per strip, although as you see from the picture above, some places exorbitantly charge up to $9.99 per strip!

This post is my attempt to go through some of the cheaper options that are available if you’ve decided that tracking ketones is important to your goals but you can’t afford the cost of these strips.… Read More

Muse Headband Review

BJJ Caveman Muse 1

 

In the past year, one of my goals has been to meditate regularly.  Every article I read and podcast I listened to seemed to so vehemently extol the amazing benefits of meditation that I just couldn’t ignore it.

Here’s an article interviewing a neuroscientist from Harvard Medical School discussing how meditation can literally change your brain!

So I gave it a shot.  I tried a couple of different guided meditation apps on my phone.  My favorite was Headspace, which offers 10 free guided mediation sessions lasting 7-10 minutes each (more are available as in-app purchases).… Read More

Review of Metamoris All Access

Metamoris All Access 0

I’ve been a fan and supporter of Metamoris ever since it began back in 2013 and have paid to live stream all 5 Metamoris events.

While I know that somehow the matches are pirated and find their way onto youtube almost immediately after it’s done broadcasting, I still feel compelled to support them.  The bigger they get, the better it is for everyone in the jiu-jitsu community, so I’m more than happy to do my small part.

They released released a subscription based, on demand feature called Metamoris All Access, with hours of new and old content.… Read More

Review of Kiefer’s T3 Fuel with a Before and After Thyroid Panel

Review of Kiefers T3 Fuel with a before and after thyroid panel

I was immediately curious about Kiefer’s thyroid supplement T3 Fuel ever since he announced it this past October.  I’ve been dealing with an elevated Reverse T3 for the past couple years and have bounced around the spectrum to having a normal thyroid level to being subclinically hypothyroid.

A Little About My Thyroid

If you’d like to read more about my past, here are some of my previous posts

When I started testing my thyroid levels in depth I was experimenting with nutritional ketosis, Carb Nite (cyclic ketogenic diet), and Carb Back-loading (targeted ketogenic diet), and I noticed a slight inverse correlation between my overall carb intake and my TSH (less carbs = higher TSH).… Read More
