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.

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.

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.

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
My guest on today's show, Robert Slovak, devoted himself to the science of water after life-altering experiences. He took his astronautical and mechanical engineering degrees and decided to pursue the research of reverse osmosis with his brother Jack. The dynamic duo were considered the early developers of Reverse Osmosis technology.           After retiring from the corporate world, Robert left for Brazil to bring advanced water technology. While working in the rainforest he became sick with gastrointestinal illness due to unsanitary eating conditions in the small village. It was then he was taken to a biologist who had given him something called "" to quickly eliminate the affliction. Robert left the Brazilian biologist the following morning convinced he had uncovered one of the greatest medicines of history, an imported marine solution from Spain.           But Robert went on to do plenty more, as we discuss in our previous episode "". In that episode, we discussed: -Which water filter is best?-Should you add minerals to my water?-What Robert thinks about alkaline water.-What is structured water?-Hydrogen-rich water? -Deuterium-depleted water (DDW)?-And much more... In today's show, Robert and I decided to take a much deeper dive into hydrogen water, which I also discussed in very good detail with Tyler Lebaron of the in the episode "."         During our discussion you'll discover:         -Robert's history with hydrogen (H2) and water...11:15         -How H2 is unique among other compounds...25:18         -How H2 affects inflammatory pathways in the body...34:42         -Hydrogen administration methods...45:18         -How Robert used H2 to heal serious injury in miraculous time...55:37         -How H2 tablets work, and what to look for in them...1:02:45         -Proper timing and dosage of H2...1:12:04         And much more!         Episode sponsors: Kion, Joovv, Organifi, Powerdot       waterandwellness.com  bengreenfieldfitness.com/allthingshydrogen
Fatigue, low energy, brain fog, weight loss resistance, low libido, anxiety, sleep problems, depression, and others have become so common today that most people speak of them as just normal with age. Even thyroid dysfunction, diabetes, and other hormone-related conditions are so common they are being considered a normal part of aging. They may be common, but I can assure you they are not normal and there is, in fact, one quite potent answer... ...fasting.           Dr. Pompa is a respected leader in the health and wellness space, educating  practitioners and the public on the origins of inflammation-driven disease, the therapeutic application of the ketogenic diet, fasting, ancestral-based health approaches, cellular healing, and detoxification. Although trained as a chiropractor, his authority is rooted in his own battle, having overcome neurotoxic illness and heavy metal poisoning using his own unique cellular detoxification strategies.           His journey back to health continued to lead him to a voracious passion to research and learning beyond what is often readily understood. A relentless self-experimenter, Dr. Pompa has a passion for healing others. He’s a true warrior of a ‘from pain to purpose’ mindset, and he speaks about removing the cause of toxicity and inflammation, going upstream, and following a multi-therapeutic approach to health and healing.             Dan's new book "" (use code BEN15 for 15% off the book) will take you "beyond fasting" with its expected results for healing the body naturally by leading you into the proper preparation for a successful fast. This will ultimately result in maximum healing, as well as making the fast as easy as possible.             His seven-week protocol prepares you for the fast by getting your cells to use their own stored fat as energy (fat-adaptation). By going into the fast fat-adapted you will go "Beyond Fasting" because results start day one of the fast, and will lead you into a lifestyle that will ultimately change your life forever, as it has for thousands around the world. This book, and the podcast you're about to hear, will help to equip the body with the tools to heal and create new stem cells from day one of the fast, which generally doesn't happen until day four or five.           During our discussion, you'll discover: -The latest technology that's caught Dr. Pompa's eye...10:33         -How Dan's fasting protocol differs from the trendy protocols currently in the marketplace...14:47           -How to properly prepare for a fast...26:20           -What to do after a fast...38:08         -Dan's personal approach to fasting...44:15           -Biohacks Ben and Dan use to enhance their fasting protocol...53:21           -The impact of fasting on immunity...59:12           -How to approach fasting with children...1:08:31           Episode sponsors: Kion, Organifi, Butcher Box, Water and Wellness

bengreenfieldfitness.com/livetimeless Let's face it.     Corporate wellness programs are old-school and outdated, including...     ...cafeteria and nutrition programs that simply advise you to "eat more lean protein" or "consume more fruits and vegetables"...     ...yearly basic doctor checkups with almost zero motivation, accountability, feedback or utilization of advanced lab and biometric testing...     ...lack of advanced biohacks in the workplace, or attention paid to hidden environmental assailants that affect energy and the company's bottom line, such as air, light, water and electricity...     ...it's time that changed, and my guests on today's podcast are doing just that, through their new, advanced corporate wellness program called "Live Timeless".     Alexander von Gramatzki grew up playing soccer in Europe where he had a chance to play alongside legends like Gareth Bale, Theo Walcott and Tony Kroos. During his youth soccer career he was connected to advanced wellness technologies to get him intimately attuned with his optimal state of performance. Even though Alex ended his youth soccer career to pursue education and business, his ability to find a high performing state resulted in him being able to work in a state of flow. As a result of being able to function at high levels, Alex was fortunate to find opportunities that allowed him to earn millions of dollars starting at the age of 23. Due to his achievements he was then the youngest person to be accepted into and graduate from the Wharton Schools 2-year long Executive General Management Program.

Frustrated by the lack of good information and tools, Joe decided to embark on a journey of self-experimentation and self-learning to improve his health--something that has since become known as “biohacking”. With thousands of experiments and Pubmed articles under his belt, Joe founded SelfHacked, the resource that was missing when he needed it. SelfHacked now gets millions of monthly readers. Joe is a thriving entrepreneur, author and speaker. He is the CEO of , and . His mission is to help people gain access to the most up-to-date, unbiased, and science-based ways to optimize their health. Joe has been studying health sciences for 17 years and has read over 30,000 PubMed articles. He's given consultations to over 1000 people who have sought his health advice. After completing the pre-med requirements at university, he founded SelfHacked because he wanted to make a big impact in improving global health. He's written hundreds of science posts, multiple books on improving health, and speaks at various health conferences. He's keen on building a brain-trust of top scientists who will improve the level of accuracy of health content on the web. He's also founded SelfDecode and LabTestAnalyzer, popular genetic and lab software tools to improve health. At , Joe has recently launched a longevity tool that allows you to live longer by knowing how to take actionable steps based on your genes. You can order tests . Use code BEN to get a 10% discount.

bengreenfieldfitness.com/allinyourmouth           I don't go to a regular dentist.         Matter of fact, for reasons you'll discover in this podcast episode, I wouldn't personally step foot near a "regular" dentist's office.         Instead, because I understand how profound an impact my teeth, gums, tongue and oral cavity have on my entire biological system, I only work with a holistic, biological dentist.         Due to my strong interest in this matter of dental health and holistic dentistry, I recently read a fantastic new book entitled "It's All in Your Mouth: Biological Dentistry and the Surprising Impact of Oral Health on Whole Body Wellness" written by my guest on today's show, Dr. Dominik Nischwitz.       Challenging conventional dental wisdom that views the teeth as separate from the rest of the body, and conventional dental practices that often cause more harm than good, my podcast guest today, Dr. Nischwitz himself, lays out:           -The latest research on the microbiome and the mouth -Critical information on the dangers of root canals and amalgam fillings -The important role of nutrition in oral health and hygiene -A clarion call for a new approach to dentistry -And much more.           During our discussion, you'll discover:           -Dominik and Ben share their personal oral care regimen...6:53           -An overview of holistic or biological dentistry...23:46           -The link between the nervous system and the teeth...38:50           -Whether or not wisdom teeth really need to be removed...50:56           -How chewing assists with the production of TH-17 immune factor cells...58:42           -What are pellicles, and how saliva helps take care of them...1:07:48           -How to find a holistic dentist near you...1:20:46           bengreenfieldfitness.com/allinyourmouth
bengreenfieldfitness.com/powersource           I recently read a fascinating title by today's podcast guest—celebrity trainer and goop expert (whatever that means) Lauren Roxburgh—       The Power Source offers a deep understanding of how to cultivate this strength by following a holistic, multisensory program. Starting with the pelvic floor, Roxburgh focuses on the five power centers that can be harnessed throughout the body: Pelvic floor Deep core Upper core Heart and shoulders Head, neck, and jaw         During this discussion, you'll discover:           -What the pelvic floor is, and what impact it has on our bodies...9:00           -How the pelvic floor is related to epigenetic trauma...13:50         -What happens when we excessively clutch or tighten the pelvic floor...18:40         -Easy, at-home pelvic floor therapy...26:38         -Why a small squishy ball is vital to the health of the pelvic floor...35:24         -Why the gut is increasingly problematic in modern society...40:24         -The importance of the upper core...50:46         -How to carry that weight on your shoulders and stay connected to your pelvic floor...58:45         -The cranial sacral connection and the nervous system...1:04:36         Episode sponsors: Kion Coffee; Organifi Green Juice; Bioptimizers kApex; Vuori Clothing   bengreenfieldfitness.com/powersource

According to Forbes and SUCCESS magazines, my guest on today's show - Brendon Burchard - is “the world’s leading high performance coach” and "one of the most watched, followed and quoted personal development trainers in history.” O, the Oprah Magazine, named him "one of the most influential leaders in the field of personal growth.” Brendon is a #1 New York Times bestselling author whose books include High Performance Habits, The Motivation Manifesto, The Charge, The Millionaire Messenger, and Life’s Golden Ticket.           An online education pioneer, Brendon has also released over 20 personal development courses on topics like motivation, confidence, habits, and productivity, which have been taken by over 2,000,000 students in 190 countries. His online videos have been viewed over 300 million times. His podcast, The Brendon Show, debuted at #1 on iTunes across all categories and for five years has regularly been in the top 20 of health/self- help.             But what many people don't know about Brendon is he is incredibly passionate about and knowledgeable in the realm of health and biohacking. And that's exactly what we dive into in today's show.         In our discussion, you'll hear:       How a near death experience instantly changed Brendon's outlook from hopeless despair to a life of intention...6:30       Brendon's morning routine...26:10         How the coronavirus pandemic has revealed or exposed people's health and wellness readiness...42:53           Brendon's top biohacks...50:00         Brendon's sleep routine, and how it changes during an event...55:14         What books Brendon has read to keep his perspective in the right place during the Coronavirus pandemic...1:08:00

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!!!

Ep4o7. ThunderDunk. Great episode. Good to see you’re not relying on the molekule to actually filter the air because it doesn’t SEEM do that very well. Search for the wire cutter molekule air purifier review
