Nov 16, 2017

The health and wellness world can be a very confusing place at times, especially when it comes to the rise of self-proclaimed health experts who may not always have your best health and wellness in mind.

This ocean of information online leads millions of people to the false-promised land every day from clickbait sites, facebook ads, and even more concerning now with a 2017 trend emerging towards getting the body, abs, and fitness people want in weeks rather than months, there is a new segment of our industry that is growing fast: Biohacking.

But do the biohacking claims about using wires, lights, pills, tubes and devices truly stack up against the power of doing the deeper emotional inventory around why someone's health suffered in the first place? What is our body's response to blue light and how do we biohack for wellness in the EMF/WiFi congested and artificially lit up world that so many work and live inside of?

Can we combine biohacking with the physical and emotional intelligence needed to live life well?

Join us on Wellness Force Radio 143 as we answers these questions and explore the truth about biohacking with Thaddeus Owen, Co-Founder of PrimalHacker.




"Everyone's truth and exploration of life is on a different path. You must understand yourself and your own truth by seeking for the things that will build you up from the inside out."

"We see people dead on gurneys all the time that have six pack abs, have run marathons, and might look amazing; outwardly there were Adonis's is but inwardly they were not healthy. To me, real wellness comes from the inside. How comfortable do you feel in your own skin? How excited are you about life and exploring all the possibilities around you? Wellness to me is being curious, being excited to get up every day, and being comfortable with who you are from the inside out." - Thaddeus Owen

"A lot of people want to get healthy and well quickly so they tend to copy someone else who has had biohacking success, but they don't actually know for themselves why they're doing it." - Thaddeus Owen
