Is Tim Ferriss Too Good To Be True?

Written by Duncan under General, Humidifiers | No Comments ""

Tim Ferriss’ 4 Hour Body book (or “The 4-Hour Body: An Uncommon Guide to Rapid Fat-Loss, Incredible Sex and Becoming Superhuman” to give it its full title) is something of an international bestselling sensation.  He even has videos telling you how to peel eggs without peeling eggs and apparently gained 34 pounds of muscle in 28 days without using steroids in just four hours of total gym time!  What a guy he sounds and all that on just two hours sleep a day.  Even Margret Thatcher had to have at least four hours!

After graduating from college Tim Ferriss founded (and later sold for a pot of cash) BrainQuicken, a web-based company selling nutritional supplements, and he is said to be best mates with several Silicon Valley CEOs.  Wired magazine called him the “greatest self-promoter in the world”, but probably best not to say that to his face as he is allegedly also very good at Chinese kickboxing!

Whatever you think of the claims made, one at least seems to be verifiable and actually works.  Many of our customers say that they are buying humidifiers to use full time their bedrooms at home as per the advice from Tim  Ferriss in the 4 Hour Body book.   Most report that their nose is certainly less blocked in the morning and their skin is not as dry.    Tim’s other advice on how to fall asleep faster includes eating  a large fat-and protein-dominated meal three  hours before bedtime,  using a  low light in the bedroom, taking  a cold bath an hour before bed  and sleeping in the  half-military crawl position.

However, what may really be doing the trick all on its own is using the humidifier to maintain a humidity of between 40-60% relative humidity.    Those who suffer from sinusitis or sinus inflammation certainly know the benefits of using a humidifier to alleviate symptoms.  Keeping air moist as well as irrigating the sinuses does do a great deal to offset sinus pain and irritation, so it’s bound to help in getting a decent night’s sleep too.  In fact, we’d hazard a guess that using the humidifier is probably all you really need to do.

However, we still remain intrigued by how you peel eggs without actually peeling eggs……
