New Discoveries Of The Week: Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!
Cool New “Done-For-You” Recovery Device
You're no doubt familiar with cupping, or have at least seen pro athletes and choice biohackers walking around with “cupping marks” on their skin from use of this technique that, in many folks (including myself) is a quick and effective way to “suck” inflammation and soreness out of a beat-up area of soft tissue.
Achedaway Cupper recently sent me one of their devices, a multifunctional dynamic cupping massager that combines dynamic suction, smart massage, and red light therapy all in one device. It’s an incredible recovery tool for pain management and myofascial release, and a perfect choice for both professional and home use. I've been slapping it on random body areas while at my desk working on emails and articles (I'm all about any biohack that also allows me to multitask) and this one really does work.
Some of its features include:
- Dynamic Cupping Technology – Cupper outstands ordinary cupping sets with rhythmic alternation of suction and release, which boosts blood circulation faster to the cupping area and speeds up the recovery process.
- Smart Massage – Offering suction of 5 different modes and 5 intensity levels, Cupper serves as a personal massage therapist and tailors a massage to your own needs.
- Red Light Therapy – The red light is a good aid in pain, inflammation, bringing faster results in healing skin and muscle tissue as well as creating more relaxation.
- Effective Myofascial Release – The innovative combination of different treatments enables effective trigger point or myofascial release while enhancing circulation, mobility and flexibility in just a few minutes.
- Easy to Use – A simple touch on the control panel frees you from exhausting hand manipulation so you can enjoy a mini-massage effortlessly.
- Compact and Portable – The compact size makes Cupper a perfect recovery tool for various areas such as the back, shoulder, hips, hamstring, and calves. You can carry it around and enjoy a massage anywhere and anytime.
- One-Year Warranty – You can rest assured that they warrant this device to be free from defects in workmanship and materials for a period of one year.

::: Save 10% On Hormone Replacement Therapy You Can Get From Home :::
Do you have a hunch that your testosterone levels may be on the low side? Or maybe you've even tested them and know this to be the case? Perhaps you've already exhausted all natural options such as lifting heavy stuff; getting plenty of zinc, creatine, and magnesium in your diet; avoiding estrogenics like the plague; experimenting with biohacks such as red light therapy and cold thermogenesis; or any of the many other tips and tricks I go over in my podcast “32 Natural Ways To Increase Testosterone (Without Getting Injections Or Hormone Replacement)”
If you've been curious about hormone replacement therapy (HRT), this new service from Prime Body makes the process easier than ever. From testing to treatment, it can all be done from the comfort of your own home in 3 simple steps:
- Order your blood work.
- Schedule a telemedicine consult with a licensed Prime Body physician.
- Start your treatment and finally see your testosterone levels go up!
It's that simple, and if you already have recent bloodwork, you can skip step 1.
Male treatment typically includes testosterone, an aromatase inhibitor, and medication to stimulate natural testosterone production. (They've also got a treatment plan for women too.)

New Cookbook For Couples
Cooking is huge in my family. My twin boys host their own cooking podcast, my mom still runs the restaurant/coffee shop my family has owned for over 20 years, my wife's cooking rivals that of Michelin-Starred chefs, and I'm currently putting the finishing touches on my very own cookbook. (Stay tuned to my newsletter for updates on that.)
So, needless to say, I'm always on the lookout for tasty, healthy recipes my family of chefs and I can tinker with at home.
Recently, I stumbled upon Kitchen Chemistry, and it was right up my alley. With a focus on healthy desserts and gluten-free meals, it features 100+ paleo recipes—including low-sugar Cookie Dough Keto Ice Cream, gluten-free Sweet Potato & Zucchini Lasagna, and even homemade aphrodisiacs like Amanda’s famous Spicy Chocolate Hearts. In addition to mouth-watering recipes, Kitchen Chemistry includes intimacy rituals to inspire better health and relationships through the kitchen!
Yes, there is a bit of an “adult” twist to certain sections of this book, so consider yourself warned before diving into the recipes with your family.
It's a pretty cool, unique cookbook that makes a great gift for a spouse or partner.
