From chronically poor health to the return of his energy and vitality: An interview with Daniel Ebbett
Manage episode 359952160 series 2998908
This was a great interview with Kiwi entrepreneur Daniel Ebbett
Daniel’s story is one of struggle with chronic insomnia and migraines.
Despite trying everything he could from allopathic and natural medicine, his health continued to decline leaving him feeling frustrated and helpless. He was struggling to meet the commitments of his corporate job and powerlifting career.
In this episode, Daniel describes his journey from chronically poor health to the return of his energy and vitality. For him, the answers were in his over-exposure to artificial light. He has subsequently become an expert on how light affects our circadian rhythm and health. He says, “health is about light, not food”.
Daniel talks about the different frequencies of natural light, from getting the early morning light in our eyes to set our circadian clocks, to the red glow our ancestors experienced from their fires in the evening. There is growing research about the effects of light on the cell receptors in our body and how we need to match our food to the light environment we live in. When we are eating food grown in the tropics, in the middle of winter, this confuses our cells leading to a mismatch between them and the environment.
Daniel has gone on to develop a company called BlockBlueLight where he provides high-quality science-based lighting solutions, all around the world. His website is a mine of good-quality information.
