"You can sin with food in many ways -- by not sharing it, by eating way too much of it, by throwing it across the restaurant table... But you do not sin with food by bowing your head over it, saying grace with true gratitude in your heart, and tucking in." These words come from a book written by today's guest - . His sharp-edged but humorous title addresses the unscriptural approach to food that many Christians have developed in recent years (by the way, a "food catholic" is somebody who accepts all eaters of all foods, even if he or she doesn't actually eat quinoa).     Specifically, the book addresses divisive threats to Christian table fellowship, the know-it-all pride of newfangled "health food" rules, and the dislocated moralism that makes "organic" and "natural" the signs of righteousness while disdaining the brethren who buy their beef at Stuffmart.       In today's podcast, Doug and I get into his approach to how Christianity mingles with food choices, and much more - including longevity and anti-aging, nutrition, diets fitness and the ultimate source of the joy and happiness so many of us turn to these type of activities to fulfill. We also discuss Doug's take on Joel Salatin, the true cost of food, and how we care for the planet.       Doug Wilson is an old family friend of mine, the minister of Christ Church in Moscow, Idaho, which is a member of the Communion of Reformed Evangelical Churches (CREC) and church I attended all throughout my childhood and during college. After his stint in the submarine service of the U.S. Navy, he attended the University of Idaho, where he obtained an MA in philosophy.     As one of its founders, Doug has served on the board of Logos School, a classical and Christian school (K-12), since its inception. He is also a Senior Fellow of theology at New St. Andrews College, which I consider to be one of the better liberal arts institutions in the country.     He is the author of numerous books, including Reforming Marriage, The Case for Classical Christian Education, Letter from a Christian Citizen, and Blackthorn Winter. Doug is also the general editor for the Omnibus textbook series. His blog can be found at www.dougwils.com and his metric ton of grandkids can be found spread across the planet with rapidly increasing frequency. During this discussion, you'll discover: -What is a "food catholic?"...9:15         -How to identify what Doug calls "phood pharisees"...12:35         -How people use diets as a substitute for true righteousness...16:50         -How to use food to assist in the pursuit of holiness...22:15         -How food as an anti-aging tactic can enhance or detract from your spirituality...26:25         -Advice for social situations where you're offered food you personally find objectionable... 36:50         -How to view food with respect to the humane treatment of God's creation...41:50         -Balancing rigorous physical and spiritual disciplines...52:00         -The one thing fitness buffs need to hear the most...1:00:15       bengreenfieldfitness.com/dougwilson
bengreenfieldfitness.com/carnivorecodebook       I recently got my hands on Dr. Paul Saladino's new book "".  Now, if you don't know who Paul is, then you must listen to my previous episodes with him, including: Since I've interviewed Paul, he has published this new book, and after reading it, I had plenty of tough questions for him, including:       -How do we *know* the reason our stomachs became 1000x more acidic than a chimp is because of animal food consumption?       -Is the decline in height and health fully attributable to plant/agriculture, or could it be due to industrialization, crowded cities, etc?       -Why do you say present hunter gatherers no longer have access to large game?        -You say herbivores can detoxify plant toxins, but we can't. How do they do it?       -All the isothiocyanate studies are in vivo for human cells. How positive are you the results are replicated in vitro?       -You say hypothyroidism/crucifer intake is *reported* in Western culture. What's that mean, exactly? Anecdotes?       -When you list the "Bad News Gang", like cigarettes, alcohol, etc. couldn't you just as easily lump exercise, cold, heat, sunlight, etc. in with factors that turn on NRF2? If so, how do you personally describe your differentiation between good vs. bad NRF2 activators?       -The studies showing value for elimination of fruit/vegetable consumption are pretty short (10-12 weeks). Any longer term studies? And did these studies factor in how the produce was being prepared (e.g. presence of oils, organic vs. inorganic, etc.)?       -When you say high intake of isoflavones causes endocrine disruption, how much is high? Same thing with Chaga for liver cancer (pg 81). Isn't that a shit-ton of chaga?       -If polyphenols reduce intestinal enzyme production, couldn't other plant compounds, such as bitters/herbs/spices, along with adequate chewing, combat that by increasing enzyme production?       -You say resveratrol has repeatedly shown lack of value in human studies, but what about Sinclair's research? Hasn't he shown the opposite?       -I found it fascinating the claim that plant-based eaters still "crave" or are attracted to meat, but how is an ERP measured exactly?       -You say that carbohydrates that accompany plant fiber can spike insulin. That's painting with a pretty broad brush, isn't it? I think the lion's share of plants don't result in an appreciable insulin spike, do they?       -You say meat is not associated with cancer, but what about if active tumor growth already exists? Would you change anything if you had cancer?       -The study on telomere length being increased only by red meat was an observational study on 28 people. Any other studies looking directly at telomere or Horvath clock responses to plant vs. animal intake that are larger, more robust or non-observational?       -You say that fruits are seeds coated in natural candy, but can't we eat the fruit flesh and "leave the seeds behind?"       -What do you say about all the studies showing reduced risk of liver cancer, diabetes, etc. amongst regular coffee drinkers?       -You say unrendered fat is your preference. Any studies on rendered vs. unrendered fat health, nutrient quality, etc?       -You say oleosins from coconut/olive oil may cause a strong allergic reaction. How conclusive is that?       Whew! You'd think after all these questions, Paul would let me know I'm being a total pain in the butt, but instead, he graciously offered to do a solosode answering all these questions and highlighting many other up-to-date details on the carnivore diet.       In Paul's solosode, you'll discover: -An overview of the carnivore diet...6:45         -"Rabbit starvation" and the ideal ratio of protein to fat to shoot for...15:40         -How plants and agriculture have contributed to the decline in human height and health...27:45         -Why present hunter gatherers no longer have access to large game...35:45         -How our stomachs became 1000x more acidic than that of a chimp because of animal food consumption...39:45         -Why herbivores can detoxify plant toxins, but humans cannot...51:45         -Studies on the effects of isothiocyanates in humans...1:01:55         -The difference between environmental and molecular hormesis...1:06:53         -A high intake of isoflavones causes endocrine disruption, how much is "high"? Same thing with Chaga for liver cancer...1:22:40         -Why Resveratrol has limited value for humans...1:29:45         -How to measure Event Related Potentials (ERP)...1:37:00         -Whether plants do or do not spike insulin levels...1:40:20         -What changes in the diet to make if you have cancer...1:53:25       -The correlation between meat intake and telomere lengths...1:57:48       -Lightning round questions...2:05:10     -And much more!     Episode sponsors: Kion Lean, Organifi, CAR.O.L Bike, Pique Tea         bengreenfieldfitness.com/carnivorecodebook

bengreenfieldfitness.com/daniel Meet 15 year-old prodigy . This kid first turned my head when he tagged me on Instagram sitting cross-legged and meditating in his shorts on what appeared to be a giant frozen glacier.              I looked into Daniel, and it turns out he's a pretty impressive young man. Daniel currently listed as one of the World’s top 100 most influential Vegans, the most in demand Health/Nutrition Youth Keynote in the world, an Award-Winning Activist, Best-Selling Author, developer of the “” program and host of the weekly YouTube “.”                Daniel has delivered 100’s of presentations since the age of 9 at conferences, expos, consumer shows, community groups, food companies, schools, institutes, non-profit organizations and continues to make headlines. But, it all started out as a bullied elementary school kid who wanted to help a few friends eat healthier.               In third grade, Daniel was approached by his teacher and decided to publicly speak about his food choices. Pleasantly surprised to see how many kids began trashing their junk food and switching to healthier alternatives, Daniel was encouraged to continue spreading the message and volunteered to speak at a global rally. Little did he know that his first public talk would go viral. It became the most viewed YouTube video for the event that took place in 500 cities around the world with over 2M attendees!               From that moment on Daniel began to speak on stages of leading Health events across Canada, the US and Europe. By the age of 11 he became a Signature Speaker with the largest health show franchise in Canada and published his Best Selling book “”. With “Daniel's BREAKFAST Burst” he was able to inspire more children around the world to eat a healthier breakfast than any other authority!               “” was such a hit it was featured in popular magazines, radio, TV and even purchased by Hollywood celebrities. It sure got kids and parents excited about eating their way to smarts too with over a month of carefully designed breakfast meals that deliver peak nutrition for mental performance. By 12 years old Daniel was ranked in the World’s top 100 most Influential Vegans and joined the non-profit organization “Borneo Wildlife Preservation” to help raise funds and awareness to support reforestation and Pygmy Elephant conservation projects in Borneo. At 13 he was honored the Shining World Leadership Award for Compassion by Supreme Master Ching Hai and completed his long anticipated “Genius Mode” program.               In his “Genius Mode - The Biology of Greatness” program and "Biology Of Greatness", Daniel shares breakthrough science on a never before discussed topic - altering our DNA to Genius. “There are ways we can go into our Genetic Code and rewrite it. Genius is something you CAN Become because it’s a built-in mechanism and there’s an exact science to doing so!” says Daniel. He reveals his daily “Hacks” we can apply to increase Brain Power, Intelligence, develop Physical and Mental Resilience and turn on our GENIUS expression. During our discussion, you'll discover: -How Daniel became an authority in nutrition at a young age...6:30               -How a bee sting led to an "aha" moment for Daniel...16:00               -Biohacks and routines in Daniel's life...24:20               -Breath protocols and foods to remain in the parasympathetic state...37:30             -The value of keeping tabs on your poop...47:05           -Little known facts about iodine...54:00           -The remainder of Daniel's routine...1:00:35             -How to alter your genius via epigenetics...1:06:00             -And much more!           Episode sponsors: Kion Colostrum, Organifi Glow, Magnesium Breakthrough, Comrad Socks bengreenfieldfitness.com/daniel

bengreenfieldfitness.com/hormesiseffect       If you heard my podcast "", recorded at , then you may have heard - towards the tail end of that podcast - how I was about to wander across to a place called to undergo a cutting-edge ozone sauna recovery treatment with something called a .           HOCATT stands for “Hyperthermic Ozone and Carbonic Acid Transdermal Technology” and the machine acts as an ozone steam sauna, in which you sit with just their head exposed to the air, while your body receives the benefits of an infusion of ozone, carbon dioxide, steam, photon light and oxygen, all while undergoing Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF).         While I was there, the proprietor of La Casa, Jane Goldberg, commented that she wasn't too concerned about the mild amount of ozone one might breathe in while using this device. I asked her why, and she handed me a book. The book is called .         Yep, I know. Woo-woo alert.         But on the plane ride home from New York, I read the book, and it was actually quite compelling. Turns out that for thousands of years people have been treating pain, injuries, and disease with low-radioactive stones.  Jane -  a New York based psychoanalyst, and holistic health consultant - and her co-author, the late Jay Gutierrez, who was a noted Native American healer and CEO of in Pritchett, Colorado, talk in the book about rediscovering a forgotten ancient science that was supposedly once well-known to our ancestors: the healing power of low-level radioactivity.           It also turns out that the concept of using low-dose radiation for therapeutic purposes, called in medical literature "radiation hormesis," has 100 years of solid scientific research behind it, and thousands of medical studies to support it. It is easy, affordable, and highly effective. If you're like most people, you're afraid of radiation, and all it implies. Yet, in other countries all over the world, millions of people have benefited from using low-level radiation on everything from tennis elbow, joint pain and arthritis, to far more serious illnesses such as multiple sclerosis, spinal meningitis, autism, stroke, macular degeneration, heart disease and cancer. The book discusses an inexpensive delivery system that brings this powerful, proven healing modality to all of us, within the comfort of our own homes: the concept of radiation hormesis and low-level radioactive natural stones.           So could radiation actually cause you to live longer and be healthier? That's exactly what we discuss in this podcast.         , Ph.D. is a licensed psychologist, a certified psychoanalyst, and an oncological psychoanalyst (having worked extensively with cancer patients). She is a Stone Carrier-Medicine Woman of the Nemenhah Native American Tribe. She is one of the founding conceptualizers of the application of psychoanalysis to group therapy. She is the author of 8 books, as well as writer and creator of a holistic newsletter called . She owns and operates two holistic centers: (the oldest wellness center in NYC) and in the El Yunque rain forest (established in 1986). For several years, she had her own television show called .         She is, as well, a documentary film maker, having produced and directed Because People Are Dying, about radiation hormesis. Her latest project, about to be launched (but delayed by COVID-19) is a unique brain enhancement program called Brainercize. Accompanying the launch will be the publication of her most recent book, The Revolutionary Mind Project. Also, soon to be published is her book co-authored with Karliin Brooks on biohacking, called Biohacking WW (Women's World).           During our discussion, you'll discover: -Whether breathing in ozone is a good thing, and how much...10:20         -Jane's story, and opening La Casa...15:00           -The surprising health benefits of atomic bombs...23:52           -Radiation Hormesis defined...26:20           -The effect of radiation on DNA...39:02           -The effect of low dose radiation on the immune system...42:42           -Radiation frequency and dosages...45:20       -How radioactive stones work...49:20       -The link between radiation and fungus...56:15       And Much More....       Episode sponsors: Kion Aminos, Organifi Gold Chocolate, Butcher Box, Beekeeper's Naturals         bengreenfieldfitness.com/hormesiseffect

bengreenfieldfitness.com/thewedge My guest on today's show, an immersive journalist and self-experimenter named , first joined me for the fantastic episode entitled           Today, Scott - a New York Times Bestselling author - is back to discuss his brand new book, which I found to be a thrilling and inspirational read: "."           Thrive or die: That's the rule of evolution. Despite this brutal logic, some species have learned to survive in even the most hostile conditions. Others couldn't—and perished. While incremental genetic adaptations hone the physiology of nearly every creature on this planet, there's another evolutionary force that is just as important: the power of choice. In an explosive investigation into the limits of endurance, in "The Wedge", Scott discovers how humans can wedge control over automatic physiological responses into the breaking point between stress and biology. We can reclaim our evolutionary destiny.         While writing the book, Carney submerged himself in ice water and learned breathing techniques from daredevil fitness guru Wim Hof. It gave him superhuman levels of endurance and quieted a persistent autoimmune illness. At the core of those methods is a technique called The Wedge that can give a person an edge in just about any situation.       In my conversation w/ Scott, you'll discover:         -What is "The Wedge" described in Scott's book?...18:00         -The concept of "neural symbology"...18:23         -How kettlebells build trust and allow the body to relax in the face of stress...24:10         -Scott's findings on carbon dioxide (CO2)...37:09         -How Scott and his wife condensed 6 months of couples therapy in 3 hours...58:00         Episode sponsors: Kion Lean, Butcher Box, Magnesium Breakthrough by BiOptimizers, Vuori Clothing           bengreenfieldfitness.com/thewedge
bengreenfieldfitness.com/biocharge My guests on today's show are Jim Girard and Jim Law. These two Jims are the masterminds behind something called the "", a crazy new biohacking device I've been using for "recipes" such as sleep onset, relaxation, athletic recovery, nitric oxide production, headache clearing, "5 hour energy", immune system boosting and much more. The BioCharger utilizes four different energy types – Light, Voltage, Frequencies & Harmonics, and Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Fields (PEMFs).               Turns out Tony Robbins is a huge fan of this thing and uses it at all his events, and a host of biohackers I know seem to be incredibly excited about it and use it nearly every day, so I finally decided to try a Biocharger out for myself and interview the inventors on today's show.                 During our discussion, you'll discover: -What is the BioCharger, and what it does for those who use it...11:00           -The technologies used in the BioCharger...17:55             -The best way to absorb the light from the device...39:05           -The effect of the BioCharger on various parts of the body...44:15           -Whether other biohacks can be "stacked" with the BioCharger...53:54           -How the device affects pets, children and cell phones...57:20           -The most popular recipes of BioCharger customers...1:03:30         -Whether it's possible to overuse the BioCharger...1:08:10     Episode sponsors: Kion Lean, Organifi Red Juice, Beekeepers Naturals, Four Sigmatic bengreenfieldfitness.com/biocharge
bengreenfieldfitness.com/lostart           I first interviewed today's guest, immersive journalist James Nestor, about "freediving" in the episode: It was such an exciting and intriguing show that afterwards, I wound up traveling all the way to Ft. Lauderdale to take a freediving course, which absolutely changed my life (you can learn more about that in my episode with Ted Harty: ).           Today James is back to talk about something we all do 25,000 times a day, yet most of us do it incorrectly or haven't even begun to tap into its lost art. That's right. I'm talking about your breath.           In his new book "", James travels the world to figure out what went wrong and how to fix it. The answers aren’t found in pulmonology labs, as we might expect, but in the muddy digs of ancient burial sites, secret Soviet facilities, New Jersey choir schools, and the smoggy streets of São Paulo. Nestor tracks down men and women exploring the hidden science behind ancient breathing practices like Pranayama, Sudarshan Kriya, and Tummo and teams up with pulmonary tinkerers to scientifically test long-held beliefs about how we breathe.           Modern research is showing us that making even slight adjustments to the way we inhale and exhale can jump-start athletic performance; rejuvenate internal organs; halt snoring, asthma, and autoimmune disease; and even straighten scoliotic spines. None of this should be possible, and yet it is.           Drawing on thousands of years of medical texts and recent cutting-edge studies in pulmonology, psychology, biochemistry, and human physiology, James turns the conventional wisdom of what we thought we knew about our most basic biological function on its head. You will never breathe the same again after hearing this podcast.         During our discussion, you'll discover:           -The breath work protocol James uses to begin his day...7:41         -Why James views breath as the "missing pillar" of health...9:55         -What James views as the "dis-evolution" of breathing...14:15         -The truly awful effects of mouth breathing...18:38         -The unusual connection between the clitoris and the nose...24:11         -How the left and right nostril activate the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems...27:44         -Healthy breathing practices of Native American and indigenous S. American populations...30:50         -Changes James made in his lifestyle after writing his book...37:06           -What other cultures and religions can teach us regarding the ideal pace of breathing...47:08           -Tibetan "rites" that help expand the lungs and diaphragm...56:47         -The Tummo method of breathing...1:06:30           -How to biohack your breath work...1:09:55           Episode sponsors: Kion Flex, Butcher Box, Thrive Market, Comrade Socks bengreenfieldfitness.com/lostart

This podcast has changed my life. Applying the ancestral practices of better living through fasting, prayer, meditation, gratitude, conscious and natural diet, movement, breathing, and cold therapy and the science backed research behind all these practices I can anecdotally confirm how powerful and life changing these practices are when incorporated in your lifestyle. I feel incredibly full of life and extremely grateful to have found out about this podcast and for Ben sharing his knowledge and skill in his research and interviewing his guest to create an incredibly knowledgeable podcast to the public.

Thank you for this episode. I'm a deep believer in nose breathing👃👃 as medicine and been meticulously monitoring my kids as babies for mouth breathing... Nose breathing is my way to breath and i can't do mouth breathing... It makes me sick. i am just discoving all kinds of pranayamas and getting slightly obsessive with breathing techniques.So thanks for the insights and more inspiration!!!
