2023's Best Health-Inspired Holiday Gifts: Dr. Jill’s Ultimate Gift Guide

HigherDose: Give the Gift of An All-Natural High

We’ve all experienced that feeling of a natural high – that cascade of “feel-good” chemicals (like dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin, and endorphins) that leaves you feeling reinvigorated and grounded. Well, now you can actually give your loved ones the gift of tapping into this all-natural high at the push of a button. HigherDose has a whole range of products that are more than just a gift – they offer a path to rejuvenation, relaxation, and radiance.

My favorite of their nature-inspired technologies include the following products.

The HigherDose Infrared PEMF Mat

Get 15% off with code DRJILL15

HigherDose’s Infrared PEMF Mat combines two powerful healing technologies – pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy and infrared’s deep penetrating heat.

PEMF therapy generates electromagnetic waves that replicate the natural frequencies present in the environment – igniting your body's innate healing mechanisms. HigherDose then pairs these energy waves with the healing heat of infrared along with twenty pounds of rejuvenating crystals layered inside the mat – jumpstarting your body's natural recovery process and amplifying the healing effects.

This combination is exceptional when it comes to accelerating holistic recovery, reducing stress, supporting deep sleep, increasing energy, and boosting mood. And the best part is, there’s no setup or cleanup required – simply turn your mat on and tune into nature's healing power.

The Higher Dose Red Light Face Mask combines red and near-infrared LED technologies. This combination creates low-level rejuvenating wavelengths that mimic those found in natural sunlight. This innovative face mask warms your skin, elevates your mood, and leaves you feeling refreshed. Not only does this face mask leave you feeling great, but it also reduces fine lines and wrinkles, boosts collagen and elastin production, and minimizes redness – igniting that natural, radiant glow from the inside out.

Somavedic: Give the Gift of Healing Energy

Use code DRJILL20 to save 20% at checkout

Energy is the very essence that gives us life – from the electrical impulses that power our every thought, feeling, and action to the chemical processes that allow us to metabolize nutrients. And because this energy serves as our very life force, it’s no surprise that our bodies are quite sensitive to interactions with energetic frequencies within our environment.

That’s what makes Somavedic devices so powerful. Their beautiful hand-crafted devices are designed on the principle of the controlled release of energy from precious and semi-precious stones – allowing them to create a coherent, life-supporting field that harmonizes the energetic frequencies of your own cells while blocking the effects of harmful energy fields (like EMFs, harmful free radicals, and Curry and Hartmann lines). This harmonizing energy translates into a whole host of health benefits – including improved cell regeneration, a calmer cardiovascular and nervous system, better sleep, and improved energy levels.

Aires Tech: Give the Gift of Unmatched EMF Protection

Receive 35% off all products through November using code DrJill at checkout.

Our modern-day world is flooded with ever-increasing levels of EMFs – low-level radiation that’s emitted from technology like cell phones, Wi-Fi, and power lines. Over time, our unending exposure to these disruptive energy fields can take a toll on our own cellular energy fields – causing a domino effect that can be damaging to every facet of our health and well-being. 

But obviously giving up our high-tech lives is out of the question. Which is what makes Aires Tech's groundbreaking technology so unique and so vitally important. Their cutting-edge technology absorbs and transforms harmful EMFs – restructuring them into more biologically compatible forms of radiation. This transformation reduces the conflict between the radiation emitted by EMFs and the natural radiation put out by your cells – mitigating their harmful impacts. 

Not only are Aire’s Tech’s devices scientifically proven to balance the chaotic energy of EMFs, but they are also sleek and incredibly easy to use – simply place them on your devices, wear them on your body, or set them up in your home and you’re immediately protected. These EMF-blocking devices are perfect for anyone in your life who spends a lot of time on the computer or who works from home – and are especially great for anyone who has little ones (as EMFs can be particularly problematic for children).

Give the Gift of A Calm, Regulated Nervous System

In the hustle and bustle of our modern lives, it’s easy for our nervous systems to become dysregulated. You see, we’re designed to live in a state of calm, rest, and peace. But stress, trauma, and even exposure to toxins can throw your nervous system off-kilter – causing you to essentially get stuck in fight or flight mode. So it's crucial to intentionally take steps to train your nervous system to return to a more balanced, restful state. And fortunately, some incredible tools can help us do just that. Here are a couple of my favorite tools to help regulate and restore balance to your nervous system – making them the perfect gift for loved ones who have high-stress lives or need a little help winding down.

Aspen Green

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a chemical compound found in the Cannabis plant. Unlike its more well-known counterpart, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD is not psychoactive – meaning it doesn't produce a “high” sensation. What makes CBD so remarkable is its ability to bind to receptors in what's known as your endocannabinoid system – a complex cell-signaling system that plays a crucial role in helping your body maintain internal balance.

CBD has been found to be especially potent at helping to regulate your nervous system – helping to alleviate stress, promote feelings of rest and relaxation, and boost your overall mood. And Aspen Green has perfected the art of extracting this potent compound to create powerful mood-boosting, calm-enhancing CBD products. Their full-spectrum CBD products are physician-formulated, organic U.S.A. grown (their plants are grown right here in my home state of Colorado), and certified toxin-free.

Their lineup of potent CBD products are formulated to meet your unique needs – whether you need some help calming down, drifting off to sleep, alleviating pain, or taking your mood up a notch. They even have specially formulated blends for your pets too!

I love and trust these products so much that I’ve parthererd with Aspen Green to bring you a 20% discount off each purchase – just use the code DRJILL at checkout. Click here to learn more about Aspen Green and get your order in for the holiday season.

Nurosym Vagal Nerve Stimulator

Nurosym is a groundbreaking platform that offers comprehensive neurofeedback training and therapy from the comfort of your home. What exactly does that mean? In simplest terms, it means that Nurosym sends targeted electrical impulses to your brain via the vagus nerve – signaling your nervous system to relax and return to a more regulated state.

This ability to stabilize and soothe your nervous system has some serious benefits that extend far beyond simply helping you feel more grounded and relaxed. It’s been clinically proven to improve memory and cognition, boost athletic performance, alleviate the symptoms of numerous conditions (like IBS, migraines, fibromyalgia), and much more.

Give the Gift of A Fit, Balanced Body

It’s no secret that mobility and fitness are key when it comes to health, longevity, and carrying that youthful effervescence with you for many years to come. So here are a couple of my favorite fitness-inspired gifts to help those on your gift-giving list uplevel their fitness and recovery.


With our fast-paced, busy lives it can be hard to squeeze in regular exercise. And that can be made doubly challenging if you struggle with pain, poor mobility, osteoporosis, or any other condition that hinders your ability to move freely and comfortably. That’s where PowerPlate comes in.

PowerPlate utilizes whole-body vibration – allowing you to stand, sit, or lie down on a platform that delivers high-frequency oscillations. As the energy of these high-frequency oscillations is transmitted to your body, your body’s natural reflexive response is activated – triggering your muscles to engage and relax in a controlled, consistent manner. These micro-movements have a whole slew of health benefits – ranging from increased strength and flexibility to improved bone density and from weight loss to enhanced brain function. PowerPlate is a remarkable gift for anyone but can be especially powerful for any loved ones on your list who might be getting up there in years or struggling with mobility.

Dr. Jill’s Pink Drink and Workout Essentials

When it comes to working out, the actual workout is only half of the equation. It’s equally important that your body can effectively recover and bounce back after your workouts. And there’s no better way to do that than to ensure your body has the nutrients and electrolytes it needs. This is where the following blends come in handy: 

Workout Essentials

Workout Essentials is a powerful blend of recovery-enhancing compounds including bioactive B vitamins, electrolytes, Albion TRAACS® chelated trace minerals, key amino acids, herbs, and powerful antioxidants. It’s then fused with unique exercise-enhancing compounds such as Purenergy™ caffeine/pterostilbene co-crystal, Creapure® creatine, and Peak ATP® adenosine triphosphate. This combo packs a powerful punch – helping you maximize your exercise time and energy output while fast-tracking your recovery.

Pink Drink

My Pink Drink is a concoction of 3 potent health-boosting supplements. First up is Magnesium L-threonate – a concentrated dose of magnesium that’s delivered straight to your brain to combat stress, promote sleep, and balance your mood. Up next is creatine – which is essential for enhancing cellular energy production, promoting lean body mass, and amplifying muscle building and performance. Lastly is an amino acid complex to support muscle growth and recovery, decrease fat synthesis, and elevate your energy levels.
These make excellent stocking stuffers for anyone on your gift-giving list who loves a good sweat sesh. You can find both of these workout-amplifying, recovery-boosting blends through my online store, right here.
