Although I love a good deal anytime, this year I’m more excited than usual to snag gifts and favorite everyday items at steep discounts. My goal is give thoughtfully, restock on personal and household essentials, and support companies I love while saving money.

If you’ve got the same goals, here are some deals on some of my favorite healthy products.

Also, if you need more inspiration, my 2023 Holiday Gift Guide has 150+ ideas to cover everyone on your list! (There are some coupon codes over there, too.)

𓏌 Wellness Wearables ^

oura ring review gen 3

Oura Ring

My Oura ring offers clear insights that take a lot of the guesswork out of what’s working for me (and what’s not). Using my three daily scores – Readiness, Sleep, and Activity – I’m able to make real-time decisions that support my health goals.

It comes with helpful features like period prediction and the ability to measure blood oxygen levels throughout the night, and it’s comfortable and built to last. Because it’s water resistant up to about 100 meters (330 feet), you can shower, swim or wash dishes while wearing it.

It comes with features like period prediction and the ability to measure blood oxygen levels throughout the night.

Unlike some wearables which require a constant bluetooth connection, nearly all of the features of the Oura ring are available when it’s in airplane mode. There are a couple features – like real-time heart rate measurements during workouts – that do require a connection, but I wear mine in airplane mode 100% of the time and get a ton of helpful data without an active connection.

Right now they’re offering:

  • $30 off Black + Silver
  • $50 off Stealth + Brushed Titanium
  • $70 off Gold
  • $100 off Rose Gold

apollo neuro review

Apollo Neuro Wearable

The Apollo Neuro uses subtle vibrations (haptic feedback) to help our brain and body feel safe, resulting in benefits like reduced stress levels, better sleep, and improved focus. It was developed by neuroscientist and psychiatrist Dr. David Rabin MD, PhD and has been validated by “gold standard” double-blind randomized placebo controlled crossover trials.

I’ve written about my experience with the Apollo Neuro here, and you can see all the studies that have been completed or are in progress here.

Right now, you can save up to $70 – no code necessary!

♨️ Sauna, PEMF & Red Light Therapy ^

Heather sitting in sauna

Clearlight is offering $600 – $800 off their low-EMF and low-ELF infrared saunas, plus an AromaOne Aromatherapy Diffuser and FREE shipping. I’ve had the full-spectrum Sanctuary II for many years now and still absolutely love it. Unlike some of my practices, which are more a matter of commitment than enjoyment, I look forward to every session and usually average about five per week.

If you’re searching for relaxation, revitalization, or respite from pain and the rigors of daily life, our saunas provide a comprehensive wellness solution.

You can read more about the benefits of sauna therapy here, and my review of Clearlight saunas here.

If you have any questions, you can call my contact Frank Hernandez at 800-798-1779 ext. 885 or email him at [email protected].

The pricing info on the page below is not updated, but if you reach out they will give you Black Friday pricing.

infrared sauna blanket benefits

Heat Healer

Heat Healer is offering 25% off their Infrared Sauna Blanket, Energy Sauna With Triple Threat Technology, and Body Belt with infrared, PEMF & red light therapy, plus accessories like their cotton towel liner.

Their low-EMF sauna blanket is perfect for people who want a portable, compact, and more affordable way to get a deep, therapeutic sweat going. Many years ago I bought a large sit-in sauna and I’ve been using several times a week ever since, but I recently left it behind during an extended road trip.

Rather than completely miss out on my daily sessions, I bought a Heat Healer to take with me and LOVED it. Here’s my full review.

heat healer energy sauna

Their new Energy Sauna With Triple Threat Technology combines sauna, PEMF therapy, and red light therapy. Like their sauna blanket, it’s perfect for small spaces.

heat healer belt black friday

Their body belt with Triple Threat Technology took 3 years to research and develop. It combines infrared heat, PEMF therapy and red light therapy to target areas of the body affected by pain and inflammation.

Since I already have devices that deliver all of these therapies separately I didn’t order one, but the founder of Heat Healer is so passionate about this synergistic approach that she asked to send me one to test. I buy 99% of the products I review, but I made an exception and let her send me one.

My husband and I have both tried it and agree that it’s absolutely amazing for easing muscle aches, supporting recovery after a workout, and general relaxation.

super teeth dental probiotic 3

SuperTeeth Dental Probiotic & Oral Care

SuperTeeth is offering 20% off their dental probiotic, which contains three strains (Streptococcus salivarius M18, Lactobacillus reuteri, and Lactobacillus paracasei) that help reduce oral bacteria associated with tooth decay, helps with bad breath, supports gum health, and supports ear, nose, throat and respiratory health. 

This brand uses twice the concentration of Streptococcus salivarius M18 than other brands I’ve seen, making it a good option for people who really want to focus on healthy teeth and gums. Their formula is also designed to stimulate the salivary glands, which can help balance oral pH.

They also recently introduced vanilla cocoa butter dental floss that’s coated with remineralizing hydroxyapatite (non-nano) and prebiotics.

ᯤ EMF Protection, Blue Blocking Glasses & More ^

blushield review

Blushield EMF Protection

Blushield is offering 15% off their EMF protection devices with code MP15. I first learned about Blushield while playing a game I call “Woo or True” with a Global Clinical Research Scholar from Harvard Medical School.

Basically I asked him for his thoughts on a bunch of different wellness modalities – whether they’re legitimate or unlikely to be helpful. Toward the end of our conversation we got onto the subject of EMFs, and he recommended Blushield to me.

Unlike EMF-blocking technologies (which I still use on my phone and in other situations), Blushield is an active system that “produces coherent frequencies within the human responsive range, based on nature-mimicking mathematical algorithms.”

I’ve covered before how our brains can entrain with certain frequencies, and according to Blushield our bodies also do the same thing. When coherent frequencies are available alongside the chaotic ones produced by non-native EMFs, Blushield says our bodies will preferentially tune into the coherent ones.

They recently released the preliminary results of a study they conducted in partnership with Tom Blue, who owns a research company and is Executive Director of the American Academy of Private Physicians.

Using lab work, full neurocognitive assessments every four weeks, data collected via the Oura ring, and participant questionnaires, they found statistically significant positive results related to cognitive function, sleep quality and heart rate variability.

Blood sugar levels were also significantly reduced, though they were already within healthy levels when the study started. Changes in immune markers were also observed, and participants reported improved overall well-being.

💧 Water Filters ^

clearly filtered pitcher review

Clearly Filtered

Clearly Filtered is offering 20% off all new filtration systems with code BF20.

That includes their countertop pitcher filter, under sink water filter, stainless steel water bottles with built-in filtration, and single or value-pack replacement filters.

After researching water filters for over a year, I bought their under sink system for my kitchen. Here’s an overview of their products:

Clearly Filtered Water Pitcher – Removes up to 99.99% of over 365 tap water contaminants including:

❌ Fluoride
❌ Lead
❌ Chlorine
❌ Pesticides
❌ Herbicides
❌ Thorium and cesium
❌ Pharmaceuticals

. . . all while keeping beneficial minerals intact. Click here for my review.

3 Stage Under Sink Water Filter – I haven’t found any other under sink option that removes as many total contaminants (including fluoride) as this system.

Clearly Filtered says their products perform as well OR BETTER than reverse osmosis systems while keeping beneficial minerals intact. Big claims should come with verifiable information, and Clearly Filtered delivers on that front with published performance data. 

Due to high demand and global supply issues, this filter has sold out several times over the past few months. They have some right now, though!

Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle – These bottles can “transform ordinary tap water into clean and safe drinking water by simply sipping through the straw. Wherever the day takes you, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your tap water is free from up to 99.9% of 220+ contaminants.” Perfect for the gym, school, water fountains, restaurants, and more. They also make an excellent portable gift for the health-conscious person on your list.

Lourdes Hydrofix Black Friday

Hydrogen Water

The Lourdes Hydrofix from Holy Hydrogen is $300 off right now, PLUS you can use code MP100 to save an additional $100 (for a total of $400 off). If you’ve never heard of the Lourdes Hydrofix, it’s a machine that can be used to make hydrogen water, and also comes with the ability to do molecular hydrogen inhalation therapy.

Molecular hydrogen isn’t well-known in the United States, but a quick search on PubMed will show that it has a lot of benefits along with an excellent safety profile. In Japan, where most of the research on molecular hydrogen has been done, it’s actually used in hospitals. (1)

Since most of the research is done in Japan, the best machines are Japanese, which is pretty great unless you’re trying to read instruction manuals.

This fall I finally bought the Lourdes Hydrofix from Holy Hydrogen, and I’m so happy I did. It is manufactured in Japan – and the main manual is in Japanese – but the amazing guys at Holy Hydrogen have created English videos and instructions that make using it super easy.

☕ FLOW – High in antioxidants and specifically formulated to support overall health and wellness

☕ EASE – High in antioxidants and lower in acidity, with prebiotic benefits

☕ CALM – Decaffeinated with a chemical-free natural water process that removes 99.9% of caffeine and retains high antioxidant properties

vibrant body company

Vibrant Body Company

Vibrant Body Company is offering 25% their entire store + FREE shipping with code BF25.

Most bras contain painful, lymph restricting underwires and chemical-laden fabrics than can easily transfer toxins into our skin due to long periods of contact time. Even underwire-free options like sports bras come with serious concerns – a recent study found that many contain BPA.

The bras, underwear and shelfie tank tops offered by Vibrant Body Company are comfortable and truly supportive thanks to a unique design that does NOT include underwires, and they’re made with OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified clean ingredients.

🍱 PaleoValley Superfood Bars, Jerky & Supplements ^

PaleoValley is offering up to 35% off PLUS a free mystery gift valued over $25. Their 100% grass-fed beef sticks and pastured turkey are so delicious! I personally like the jalapeno flavor, but my kids prefer the original and summer sausage flavors. Here’s what I use and recommend:

Superfood Bars – Unlike one of the most popular protein bars, which contains:

  • 4g of protein
  • 9g of fat
  • 23g of sugar

. . . PaleoValley makes their bars with NO ADDED SUGAR and MORE PROTEIN, including grass-fed bone broth protein that’s rich in collagen – the most abundant protein in our bodies (bones, muscles, skin, blood vessels, tendons AND the digestive system).

They also incorporate healthy fats and other nutrient-dense foods like vitamin C rich acerola cherry, spirulina, turmeric and wild blueberries. Oh, and they’re delicious and satisfying. (We recommend the Lemon Meringue and Apple Cinnamon.)

Vanilla Bone Broth Protein – Sweetened with monk fruit extract, this stuff tastes like cake. I love adding a scoop to my coffee in the morning.

Naturally Fermented Grass-Fed Beef Sticks – I personally like the jalapeno flavor, but my kids prefer the original and summer sausage flavors.

Whole Food Supplements – My favorites are the Vitamin C Complex and Grass-Fed Organ Complex.

kasandrinos black friday sale

🍈 Olive Oils

The Kasandrinos family is 20% off their pure, delicious olive oils and vinegars with code BF20. You’ve probably heard that grocery store olive oils are often cut with cheaper oils like soy, canola and sunflower, and it’s true.

In one independent test conducted at The University of California-Davis, 69% of the imported “extra virgin” olive oil they tested failed to meet internationally accepted standards for purity.

Kasandrinos organic olive oil is different because they only bottle from a single source – Laconia, Greece. Each batch has a chemical analysis performed to ensure purity, and the olives are pressed within 24 hours to ensure maximum flavor and antioxidant potency. They also only sell from the current year’s harvest to ensure that each bottle is ultra-fresh.
