2016 Healthy Holidays Gift Guide

My Healthy Holidays Gift Guide is back! And this time… it’s personal. ;)

Last year I did a huge giveaway for my 12-year cancerversary, which was a lot of work, and might return in 2017… In the meantime, if you’re looking for some great last minute healthy gift ideas, just scroll down darlin’.

As usual, it’s a mix of classic favorites and new discoveries. Enjoy!


The Berkey Water Filter

Number #1 on my list is always the Berkey Water Filter. Always.
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 purify 6,000 gallons of water before needing replacement. If you drink 10 gallons of water a week, the main filters will last about 11 years, costing only a few pennies per gallon. We often take ours on vacation with us, and it’s awesome to have in case of an emergency like Katrina, or Sandy, or a Walking Dead type scenario.

The Berkey was rated #1 for contaminant removal by Natural News Water Filter Labs.

I’ve been enthusiastically endorsing the Berkey for years and I get thank-you messages constantly from readers who’ve bought one and love it.

I made a video about the Berkey here. And I use a Berkey shower filter as well.

A Glass Tea Kettle

Metal tea kettles leach metals like nickel and chromium into your water. Yes this includes stainless steel (research here). So I highly recommend you switch to a glass tea kettle instead. We use the Adagio Glass Tea Kettle to boil water for tea, oatmeal, etc. Works on any cooktop surface.

Get it on Amazon

Enameled Cast Iron Cookware

le creuset copy

Stainless steel cookware also leaches metal into your food, which is why I bought enameled cast iron cookware many years ago. The brand we use no longer exists, but there are lots of similar brands on amazon. Le Creuset (shown above) is the best of the best, made in France since 1925, but brands like Lodge and Le Chef have high ratings on amazon too.

A Foam Roller

I’ve become obsessed with rollers in the last couple years. I currently own four, and I might need an intervention… But seriously, foam rolling could change your life. I roll on one multiple times a day to keep my spine flexible, and to work on tight or sore muscles in my back, butt and legs. If you don’t have one, you can’t go wrong with a basic high-density foam roller (the smooth one).

The spikey one is the legendary Rumble Roller aka “The Punisher”. This is a hurts-so-good deep tissue massaging roller used by many pro athletes. Not for the faint of heart. It’s a Bad Mamma Jamma.

I also have a PowerPro 2 in 1. It’s nice because you get a smooth foam roller for working on tender areas, and a multi-purpose massaging roller for everything else. I bought the PowerPro to travel with because I can stuff the hollow roller full of socks or whatever and it doesn’t take up much room in my suitcase.

The Encyclopedia of Medical Breakthroughs

Nothing says “I love you” like an encyclopedia…
Who’s with me!

The Encyclopedia of Medical Breakthroughs and Forbidden Treatments is an A-to-Z reference guide of effective therapies largely unused in conventional medicine. Backed by over 1,300 citations, it includes little known research on methods to treat everything from cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and Lyme, to colds and flu, hot flashes, food poisoning, arthritis, kidney stones, warts… You name it!

This is one of my favorite discoveries of 2016 and definitely worth adding to your library. Makes a great gift for the health nerd who has everything.  ;)

Earthing Starter Kit

When you walk outside barefoot or sleep on the ground there is an electron transfer between your body and the earth. You are grounded. But most of us aren’t doing that. Earthing devices connect your body to the earth in the same way, while you work at your desk or sleep in your bed. I bought the Earthing Starter Kit shown above and use the mat above under my desk and I have the throw on my bed. You may experience a noticeable improvement in energy and sleep once you start earthing. :)

The Rebound-Air Mini Trampoline

Rebounding is my favorite low impact aerobic excercise and the most effective way to stimulate your lymphatic system, which is a critical part of your immune system.

I did this several times a day as part of my anti-cancer strategy, and my wife used rebounding workout dvds to lose weight and get back in shape after Marin was born. It’s really fun and it works! I wrote a big ol’ blog post about it here.

I’ve had a Rebound-Air since 2004. It is super high quality, folds up for easy storage, and it is the only brand I know of with a Lifetime Warranty. Cellerciser, Needak, Jumpsport and Bellicon are also quality brands.

Check out ReboundAir models and prices here

The Tower Garden

I’ve been growing food in a Tower Garden aeroponic vertical garden since 2013. In 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 explaining the Tower Garden here

L’Equip XL Juicer

Faithful readers of this blog know how much I love my Champion Juicer ($300), but I think the best inexpensive juicer to gift or get started with is the L’Equip XL Juicer.

The XL 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. Normally $129…

Right now (Dec 2016) it’s only $89 on amazon!



The Vitamix Blender

This year I’m closing with one of the special ladies in my life, my kitchen mistress: The Vitamix

Built in the USA with 70% American components, The Vitamix comes with a 7-year warranty, a 30-day free trial and free shipping.

The Vitamix comes in red, white, black and stainless. We have a red one, which often travels with us.

*Heads up! All Vitamix blenders are on sale through December 31st!*

    Chris, I was about to order the glass tea kettle but decided to read some of the reviews first. I came across yours, in which you gave it 1 star. Did you find a better one that you would recommend?

  • MaryJ

    Hi Chris, I ordered the digital Square one healing programme (approximately last weekend as I haven’t got my latest bank statement and didn’t take a screenshot of the order unfortunately) and haven’t heard from you guys or received the package, just wondering did my order go through? Also contacted you through facebook message but no response from you! On reading the Square one advert the digital product was to have been available immediately.

  • Patrick McVay

    Chris, I have a travel Berkey with fluoride filters. I recently moved to a small condo and would prefer to save room with an under the counter filter. Is there a reliable, effective under the counter filter that removes fluoride without creating mineral deficient acid water?

  • Lydia Garrett

    Glass tea kettle link isn’t working for me, anyone have another suggestion? I’m a daily tea drinker and have been using stainless steel for years. I have a small cast iron teapot for brewing only, need something to heat on stove.

  • Lori

    You can imagine my wonderful surprise to see that you have a Tower Garden. We LOVE ours and eat from it every single day. Thanks for the wonderful post. I’m stealing some good ideas for my Christmas shopping!
