Epic Health, Healthy Gift Guide

2014 Healthy Holidays Gift Guide

Welcome to my fourth annual Healthy Holidays Gift Guide!
If you’re looking for some great (and healthy) gift ideas (of course you are), just scroll down baby.

As usual, there are some oldies-but-goodies and some newbies. Enjoy!


The Berkey Water Filter

IMG_5339_2#1 on the list this year is the incomparable
Berkey Water Filter because it was recently rated #1 for contaminant removal by Natural News Water Filter Labs.
The Berkey removes bacteria, cysts, parasites, and toxic chemicals to levels higher than 99.99%, and the optional fluoride/arsenic filters reduce 95% of fluoride.
The Berkey is portable, requires no power or water pressure, and will even filter pond water. The two main filters will purify 6,000 gallons of water before needing replacement.
If you drink 10 gallons of water a week, the main filters will last over 11 years, costing only a few pennies per gallon.
Totally awesome to have in an emergency like Katrina, or Sandy, or zombies.

We even take ours on vacation with us.

The cutie in the picture is my sister, right after we put hers together.

I love my Berkey so much I made a video about it here.

p.s. They have a great shower filter too.

Radical Remission

In this New York Times bestseller, my friend Dr. Kelly Turner details her research on people who have healed cancer and reveals the nine common factors that can lead to a spontaneous remission from cancer—even after conventional medicine has failed.

This is a phenomenal book and a must-have in every cancer patients library.

The Coco-Jack


The Coco-Jack is the greatest coconut opening tool ever invented.
In this quick video I demonstrate how it will open a coconut in 3 seconds flat.

Annmarie Gianni Skin Care


Annmarie Gianni Skin Care is made from organic, natural and wild-crafted ingredients.
No weird toxic junk or secret ingredients. They have several sample kits that made the list.

The $20 GetAway Travel Kit includes the Aloe Herb Facial Cleanser, Ayurvedic Scrub, Purifying Mud Mask, Dead Sea Facial Scrub, Neroli Toning Mist, Coconut Body Oil, Repair Serum and Herbal Facial Oil. Bonus! The GetAway kit includes a $10 off coupon to use on any full-size item purchase.

There are three different $10 sample kits to choose from, based on your skin type. Plus the sample kit also comes with the $10 off coupon for a full-size item purchase, which will essentially make your sample kit free!

Micah and I have both used many of Annmarie’s products and they are wonderful. Our absolute favorite is the Aloe Herb Facial Cleanser.

The Tower Garden

In the spring of 2013, I bought an aeroponic vertical garden called the Tower Garden.
I grew a bunch of veggies and herbs, and it was super fun.

In the spring of 2014, I took a selfie with my Tower Garden every day for two months and made this 60 second time lapse video. If you haven’t seen it, prepare for mind-blownage.
Also try not to be distracted by my fabulous wardrobe changes.

The Tower Garden is super eco-friendly, using only 10% of the water and land space as a regular garden.

It will grow food anywhere there is sunlight and permissible temperatures, and is especially great for folks who don’t have a yard to plant in. You can put it on your porch, deck, patio or in a sunroom. You can also grow indoors with grow lights.

It’s fed with liquid nutrients which are a blend of earth and sea minerals formulated for aeroponic growing

The Tower Garden comes with everything you need to get started including seeds, Tower Tonic, pH kit, a manual and an instructional dvd.

I made a more detailed video about the Tower Garden that you can watch here

Or you can go directly to the Tower Garden website here


Dollar Shave Club


If there’s one thing I always forget to buy, it’s razor blades. So invariably every few months I find myself with nicks and razor burn, shaving with a dull blade for several weeks until I finally make a special trip to go buy new blades. That was until Dollar Shave Club came into my life…
Now Micah and I both use the “4X” and we get 4 replacement blades automatically shipped to our house every month for only $6. Shave time. Shave money.

Le Creuset Cast Iron Cookware

le creuset copy

Le Creuset is the best of the best when it comes to cast iron cookware. And this 20-piece set is currently 41% off on amazon! Not sure for how long though… It comes in a variety of beautiful colors (shown in cherry red) and has a lifetime warranty.
Here’s the link



Nothing says “I love you” like a subscription to Carbonite online backup service. LOL!
But seriously, if someone you care about isn’t backing up their computer online they risk losing all of their files, photos, and videos if their hard drive fails, or if their computer is lost or destroyed.
I used to get tiny periodic panic attacks about this before I signed up for Carbonite. Now I don’t.

Backing up my computer with Carbonite costs me $60 per year ($5 per month), and they give you a $20 gift card for signing up, which you can spend on sites like amazon. Cool deal.

Carbonite. For the person who has everything… on their computer.

Jim Gaffigan Mr Universe DVD


The most popular item on last year’s list is back!
It’s the hilarious and super clean comedy of Jim Gaffigan.

Laughter is good medicine, but I should warn you…
This could be deadly if you try to watch it while eating.

Definitely do not watch this while eating.

Buy one for yourself and ten copies for gifts.
You’re welcome.

L’Equip XL Juicer

Faithful readers of this blog know I have a Champion Juicer ($300), but I think the best inexpensive juicer is the L’Equip XL Juicer ($119).

It has a has a 3″ feeding tube, stainless steel bowl, blade and basket, and it’s fast, easy to use, easy to clean up, takes up very little counter space, and comes with a 6 year warranty.

Get the L’Equip XL Juicer here





I bought a Mountain Air Organic Mattress in April 2014 (Surprise honey!) and it’s dreamy.
This is the most expensive item on the list, but worth every penny. Since you spend a third of your life sleeping, a high-quality, organic, chemical-free mattress is one of the best investments you can make.

    What do you think about black seed oil?, have you used it?.. They say it’s very beneficial for many diseases and cancers. It also helps if you’re losing a lot of hair.
