The environment you live in has the most profound impact on your health and wellbeing, but are you aware of the toxins and pollutants we’re surrounded by on a daily basis?
That is why today’s episode is so important. We talk about toxins that are overlooked in your house and what you can do about them. Our guest is Ryan Blaser, the founder and CEO of Test My Home, an environmental company dedicated to improving your health by changing the environment around you.
As a functional medicine doctor for your home, Ryan uses his expertise in building biology and healthy home consulting to identify and address toxic sources that could be impacting your health.
After a unique personal wellness journey, Ryan founded Test My Home to help others achieve optimal health. He personally experienced the detrimental effects of mold exposure and lead inhalation, which caused unusual and serious health symptoms like fatigue, weight loss, and brain fog. After unsuccessful attempts with conventional doctors, Ryan took the initiative to investigate his home environment and found the source of his health issues.
He cured himself and is now sharing his knowledge and experience with the world.
The definition of biohacking is to change the environment around you, and inside of you, so you have full control of your own biology. This is a part of core biohacking, and it's one I think a lot of us just don't think about. We take our supplements, we do our cold plunges, we do all the different biohacks, but just cleaning up the environment around you could make a really big difference. So, in this episode you’ll learn about the most common pollutants and toxins in your home, how to identify them, and ways you can mitigate or eliminate their effects.
