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 to hopefully better the reader’s life or open a few doors that would otherwise never be considered.

Andy Storey, Traveler & 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 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 optimally 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 (near Aspen.) However, when I graduated high school, I went to college in New York City. A significant change, you might say. After spending six years there, I moved into a small apartment in Los Angeles with my older brother, Luke. Being around him led me to get involved with things like yoga, a short exploration of vegetarianism, and other holistic and less mainstream ways of working with health.

Today I’m inspired by functional movement and playing sports, from basketball and mountain climbing to tennis. Also, if it’s outdoors, I’m down to do it.

Andy in Santa Fe

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 having a flawed immune system, parasite infection, candida overgrowth, and a gluten allergy. These all led up to getting sick 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 by using a healthy diet and a few herbal remedies.

This brings me to the topic: diet. I’m big on the paleo, ketogenic, and carnivore diet. I’ve tried all three, which have given me good results. I like to follow and read about 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 design ad campaigns and movie posters. It’s a lot of graphic design and illustration. I work indoors and am 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 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:

Andy Medellin

During the summers, I move to Medellin, Colombia (except during pandemics), where I try to improve my Spanish and write more articles.

Camilo Suarez, Medellin Expert

Camilo writes and helps produce both articles and videos for Wild Lumens. He originally grew up in Queens, New York but now resides in Medellin, Colombia.

He is fluent in both English and Spanish, which makes him perfect for sharing his experiences of living and traveling throughout Colombia. Plus, he is a fan of all things Salsa and can drop a dance move when needed.

During his free time, he creates model miniatures of houses, iconic locations, robots and anything that he can come up with in his imagination. You can follow him on YouTube here and Instagram here.

Conclusion

I hope this gave some insight into 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.
