New Discoveries Of The Week: Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!
Get Your Head In The (Cryotherapy) Game
The Greek physician Hippocrates wrote about the use of cold therapy to control pain and swelling in the 4th century B.C., and nowadays, cryotherapy is standard practice for professional athletes and biohackers, and weirdos like myself.
Cryotherapy works by inducing a hormetic stress response—any light or mild stressor (like exercise) that stimulates a beneficial adaptive response—so you come out stronger than you were before. When you experience cold, the sympathetic nervous system (your “fight-or-flight” nervous system) kicks into gear to preserve your core body temperature. The proven benefits of cryotherapy include a stronger immune system, increased cell longevity, decreased level of inflammatory molecules, and more. Cool, right? ;)
I personally do some form of cryotherapy every day, and so when I heard about the Cryohelmet from Catalyst, I had to try it out.
The Cryohelmet is exactly what it sounds like…a helmet that delivers long-lasting cooling therapy to the head, which has been found to reduce or eliminate pain from migraines and other headache disorders, manage concussion symptoms, soothe minor head injuries, promote sleep, and cool you down in the heat. The Cryohelmet comes in four sizes for the perfect fit, and given that it's priced at less than a hundred bucks, it's a great way to tap into the benefits of localized cryotherapy without a hefty investment…or without sticking your head into a bucket of ice.

::: Save 20% On Lucy's New Nicotine Pouches :::
Look, we’re all adults here…
…and some of us choose to use nicotine to relax, focus, or just unwind after a long day.
Personally, I'm a big fan of microdosing nicotine for cognitive enhancement, and my preferred method of nicotine delivery is with Lucy Nicotine gum.
Lucy Nicotine is a company that was created to help nicotine users find a cleaner option and feel better about the ways they consume nicotine. Their latest product is Slim Nicotine Pouches, which contain pure synthetic nicotine and provide the same satisfaction that nicotine users expect, without any tobacco at all. Each pouch contains coconut oil and gum base to provide a soft, fluffy texture that enhances the flavor and doesn't dry out your mouth.

I Want To Know What You've Got Cooking
I'm so stoked about the positive feedback I've been getting about my new Boundless Cookbook. The cookbook was a labor of love, but I'm really proud of the end result (especially considering I'm definitely not a trained chef).
Now that the Boundless Cookbook is available on Amazon, I have a favor to ask…
If you have the cookbook and you love it, can you hop on over to Amazon and leave a review? Amazon reviews—as I bet you know—are super important. I want your honest feedback and I'll be reading them to hear what you think.
You can leave your review on Amazon right here (and if you don't have a cookbook yet, and you're an Amazon Prime member, you could have your copy at your doorstep as early as tomorrow).
The oregano plant has been used for thousands of years in the Mediterranean as a trusted health solution.
When the oil of oregano is extracted, its health benefits become even more concentrated. Oregano oil’s potent antioxidants and phenols can support the body’s natural defenses and restore balance to your gut microbiome.
Kion Oregano Oil is a high-quality, effective, and palatable oil. Our wild-crafted oregano oil is carefully blended with sweet almond oil, making it safe for daily use and long-term gut health support.
