Chris Kresser’s Holiday Gift Guide

Chris Kresser's Holiday Gift Guide

I’ll admit that I’m a little jaded when it comes to holidays and gifts. 

I’ve always viewed the holidays as primarily a time to connect and spend time with loved ones and reflect on everything I am grateful for and appreciative of. 

But it seems to me that, at least in rich, industrialized countries, the holiday season has transformed into an orgy of consumerism. This can make it difficult to stay connected to the true spirit of the holidays. 

One way I’ve addressed this in my life is to focus on giving gifts that I feel will truly make a difference in the recipient’s life. I try to choose gifts that uplift, inspire, empower, educate, and generally help people to feel and perform their best. 

With that in mind, I’m excited to share our first annual Holiday Gift Guide.

I’ve curated a selection of my favorite products from trusted partners. These are the products and services that have made a big impact on my own life and my patients’ lives. I can recommend them with confidence because I’ve experienced their benefits firsthand. 

I’ve personally approved every gift on this page. They’ve made it through my rigorous selection criteria, which include quality, efficacy, purity, brand values, and supporting research. 

These are gifts that keep giving—over and over. 

I hope you enjoy giving them as much as I’ve enjoyed sharing them with you.

Two of my favorite healing modalities are infrared light and pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF). Together, they reduce inflammation, boost mitochondrial function, increase micro-circulation, reduce pain, and slow the aging process. This is why I’m a huge fan of the Infrared PEMF Mat which combines PEMF with far infrared light therapy. I do a 20-30 minute session on this mat every afternoon, and I get up feeling refreshed and restored. This device has made a bigger difference in my health and quality of life than just about any other intervention I’ve tried in the past several years. They even have a smaller version called the Go Mat that fits perfectly in an office chair!
