Blue light—sounds lovely, doesn’t it? Actually, it's often the opposite. This is the high energy light emitted by electronic devices and the sun, and we're all seeing waaaay too much of it, thanks to our growing dependency on screens. Using electronic devices is part of living and working in the world today, but it can create some unpleasant symptoms for some people. It’s called digital eye strain, with symptoms that range from dry eyes and blurry vision to headaches and fatigue. In addition, blue light at night can affect your ability to get a good night’s sleep and long-term exposure may worsen your eyesight over time. Blue light-blocking glasses—which look just like regular glasses with tinted lenses—may improve your sleep, and many people swear by them for relieving fatigue and other symptoms.

Expanded Podcast with Lacey Phillips: Andy Mant - BLUblox Glasses
Today's episode is with Andy Mant, Founder of BLUblox. Many of you know that I religiously follow everything Jack Kruse has to say because it's had a tremendous effect on my healing; meaning that I've moved to nature, gotten back into the rhythm, and I've really reduced, if not almost totally gotten rid of all of the blue light in my life, as well as any other light pollution and on native EMFs. I've kind of biohacked and transformed my hormones. It's transformed my circadian rhythm, which controls the hormones. Doing this has healed so much inside my body so I'm excited to have Andy on the show to explain further about his glasses that I wear, which are called BLUblox. In our conversation, Andy shares so much information on blue light, the different colors of the lenses and what they do, as well as how to hack our surroundings. He even educated me on which glasses are best for the different times of the day, which I wasn’t fully aware of yet. Andy and his company are so accommodating and passionate about people truly being protected– it’s just another reason I love his company.
