Mission Statement: Wild Lumens is all about bringing light into the world in a wild way. What we mean by wild is getting back to our roots and exploring health and wellness from a primitive starting point but also bringing in state of the art topics, relevant studies and processes that enhance life.
Our authors are brought in from different walks of life but are here to share their experiences and data in order to hopefully better the reader’s life or at least open a few doors that would otherwise never be considered.
Andy Storey, Carnivore Diet Coach for MeatRX
Hey yall! I’m Andy and I’m glad you’re here.
A little about myself. To begin I’m probably much like you. Curious and trying to figure out how to better myself. Ever since I was young I have striven to be good at whatever I do whether it’s sports, art, or even business. To me, life is the proverbial journey so why not make it awesome but at the same time do it an optimal way with good health and energy and those are the things I tend to write about.
A little background. I grew up in the small rural town of Basalt Colorado, (it’s near Aspen.) However, when I graduated high school I ended up going to college in New York City. A big change you might say. After spending 6 years there I moved into a small apartment in Los Angeles with my older brother, Luke. Being around him led me to getting involved with things like yoga, a momentary exploration of vegetarianism, and other holistic and less than mainstream ways of working with health.
Today I’m inspired by functional movement and playing sports all the way from basketball, mountain climbing to tennis. Also if it’s outdoors I’m down to do it.
This story isn’t all peaches and cream. I’ve had a few health challenges and most revolved around a poor diet. Those challenges included myself having a poor immune system, parasite infection, candida overgrowth, and an allergy to gluten. These all led up to getting sick really easily and lack of energy.
In 2015 I made some changes and began working with a functional medicine doctor. We ran some blood and fecal tests (gross) and found out what was causing the problems. Since then I have been able to get better, remove the parasite infection, and increase my energy levels all by way of a healthy diet and a few herbal remedies.
Which brings me to the topic: diet. I’m big on the paleo, ketogenic and carnivore diet. I’ve tried all three and all three have given me good results. The doctors I like to follow and read about are Dr. Shawn Baker, Dr. Paul Saladino, Dr. Ken Berry, Dr. Georgia Ede, and Dr. Jason Fung. These are just a few! I resort to and reference these people a lot when writing about diet and nutrition.
My day job is within the world of entertainment marketing for movies, TV, and streaming services like Netflix. I basically design ad campaigns and movie posters. It’s a lot of graphic design and illustration. totally indoors and glued to a chair with non-stop blue light baths. Not healthy.
I’m also a coach for MeatRX and help motivate and guide people that are interested in a carnivore diet lifestyle. It takes a ton of discipline but I’m here to help. You can book a session with me here:
During the summers I move to Medellin, Colombia, (except during pandemics), where I try to improve my Spanish and also write more articles.
I hope this was able to give some insight and motivation on why I write about what I write about. If you have questions or would like us to feature you or a topic you feel is within the Wild Lumens mission statement then, by all means, shoot an email to wildlumens@Gmail.com
