Standing at an imposing 6 feet 6 inches, Noah Seth Syndergaard’s powerful arm and commanding presence on the baseball mound have made him a force to be reckoned with in the world of professional sports.


The indomitable, larger-than-life free agent, widely known by his formidable moniker “Thor,” has graced the rosters of Major League Baseball teams such as the New York Mets, Los Angeles Angels, Philadelphia Phillies, Los Angeles Dodgers, and the Cleveland Guardians.

Noah's story is filled with standout moments, notably steering the Mets to the 2015 World Series and earning a reputation for his blazing fastball, consistently hitting triple digits. But it's not just about the stats — Syndergaard embodies resilience, bouncing back from injuries with grit and determination, showcasing not just skill but an unyielding spirit.

Off the diamond, Noah Syndergaard transforms into a maverick biohacker, charting unexplored territories of human optimization. In his riveting GQ interview titled “Noah Syndergaard Thinks Baseball Has Gotten Soft—and Humans Have, Too,” he delves into the depths of his unconventional health and wellness protocols. From subzero cold plunges to cutting-edge red light therapy, earthing and grounding rituals, BFR (Blood Flow Restriction) training, and a nose-to-tail eating regimen, Syndergaard's holistic approach mirrors the ethos of pushing boundaries.

Brace yourself for a conversation that transcends baseball, offering a glimpse into the mindset of an athlete who is not just pushing the limits of professional sports but rewriting the playbook on human potential with his extraordinary approach to self-optimization.

-From Andy Kaps, President of Clearlight Infrared:

None of the wood Clearlight uses is grown in China. The mahogany is from North Africa, the basswood is from Canada, and the hemlock framing wood that Clearlight uses is also from Canada. The wood certificates that Clearlight uses are attached:

Clearlight doesn't buy the wood directly from the mills. For the Canadian woods, they buy from Western Forest Products. For the mahogany, they buy from China National Forest Products Industry Corporation — this is the name of the wood importer into China. They are the organization that is FSC-certified.

Clearlight buys the natural wood, and it is 100% untreated and kiln-dried, so it does not need to be fumigated when imported to China. Clearlight does not fumigate the saunas when importing to North America. The wood is never fumigated for saunas designated for the North American market. When importing into some other countries, they require it, but not for the US/Canada market.

Hopefully, this puts to rest the false claim that the wood Clearlight uses is sourced in China.

    There is research on dreaming which is good for the brain as it plays out images related to real life events during the day. Dreams seem to be a way to explain our thoughts that we are not able to understand readily. It is like an imaginative playground in our minds when unconscious during sleep. I dream a lot which take after my father, taking after his mother so it could be partially genetic trait in the family to have this ability. Some famous artists and scientists have been using dreams to inspire their creativity and inventions therefore it is not useless nor time waster in human existence.
