New Discoveries

A New Test That's Keeping My Home Safe From Invisible Mold and Bacteria

Your living environment has a profound impact on your health – a fact I've emphasized frequently. This is why I'm constantly on the hunt for the latest and greatest tools to make sure my surroundings are healthy.

I've used ERMI (Environmental Relative Moldiness Index) in the past to assess mold presence in my home. It's still a great start, but times change and technologies advance, and now there's a new sheriff in town.

Enter The Dust Test.

The Dust Test combines state-of-the-art DNA and chemical sequencing technologies to fully evaluate the invisible fungal and toxic fragments that may be hiding in your home. This not only helps you identify specific mold species but also determines the types of mycotoxins and endotoxins circulating in your environment.

Why is this a big deal?

Because with this information in your hands, you can understand whether there's a toxic mold or bacteria problem brewing in your home, and gauge its severity.

Essentially, The Dust Test is like a detective that can reveal if your home is criminally undermining your health.

And while I tip my hat to ERMI for the job it did in this role, it's time to welcome new and improved technologies with the much more accurate and comprehensive The Dust Test. Remember, every piece of information about your environment is a step closer to optimal health.

Product Of The Week

::: Snag 25% Off Your Ticket to Skin Invincibility this Summer :::

Imagine if your skin had invincible armor underneath the surface, like (for those fans) Frodo's mithril shirt in “The Lord of The Rings,” invisibly safeguarding you from the many foes you encounter each day – the sun's fiery rays, blue light from digital screens, and other environmental adversaries.

Your fantasy isn't far from reality, thanks to a secret weapon I've added to my own adventurer's kit. 

90% of avoidable skin aging is caused by sun exposure, so I take Summer Ready to create an internal forcefield. Think of it like the Gandalf to your skin's Fellowship, defiantly proclaiming, “You shall not pass” to free radicals and the signs of skin aging.

The secret ingredient to Summer Ready's power is Polypodium Leucotomos, a fern from South America. Its antioxidant abilities form a sturdy shield against free radical onslaughts.

Paired with nicotinamide, this blend cranks up your skin's internal defense system, keeping you protected whether you're frolicking in the sun, just got scorched, or find yourself in front of glowing screens constantly.

Just don't toss out your sunscreen yet – Summer Ready is a wingman, not a replacement. Its benefits halt if you discontinue supplementation, and it is not a replacement for topical guards against the sun's rays.

Ready to don your own internal magical armor? Just click this link and use code 25GREENFIELD for a stellar 25% off. 

Upcoming Events:

Walk For Water: August 8th, 2023

The team and I here at Ben Greenfield Life will be participating in a special Walk For Water event this year. Around the world, 2.2 billion people lack access to safe water. Millions of women and children walk more than three miles to collect water for their families every day. Often this water is not safe to drink, resulting in illness and even death, but we have the power to change this. I invite you to join us by walking for water yourself. Just $50 can provide clean water for one person for life. Learn more here.

Disrupt: September 29 – October 1st, 2023

Join me for the Disrupt 2023 Event in Atlanta, Georgia, from September 29th – October 1st. This event is oriented towards entrepreneurs and health practitioners alike centered around the topic of making healthcare truly healthy. This highly practical and immersive workshop will feature live Q&As, my top secrets for career success, and much more! Learn more here.

Couples Collective: October 25th – 29th, 2023

Couples Collective is an exclusive and immersive way to explore health, wellness, and mindset with your significant other. Jessa and I will be leading a health optimization and relationships workshop, alongside many other awesome couples. This is a small event, and access requires you to interview with event-holder OWN IT to ensure a right fit. However, for those who are said fit, this event is designed to bring you into deeper union within your relationship and onward into greater connection with your life, love, health, and happiness. I'm looking for 6 to 7 powerful couples to come join me at the event, are you one of them? Learn more here.

Asking A Quick Favor About My New Book Boundless Parenting: Tools, Tactics & Habits of Great Parents.

Boundless Parenting standing on deskAs you may know, in February of this year I released Boundless Parenting: a labor of love made up of interviews with some of the most incredible parents on the planet and their combined wisdom.

This book is designed to be a guide to, well, guiding your child in a world where navigating the act of raising a family has become a lost art. 

The interviews in Boundless Parenting range from Bryan Johnson of Blueprint to my friends Dr. Dan and Merily Pompa, and many, many more. The text is chock full of all sorts of tools and tactics, from teaching your kids how to fast (and when it would be appropriate) to the ways Jessa and I have invested in the Greenfield family legacy. It has everything you need to go from lost-puppy-without-a-clue to grade-A super parent, and also has plenty of wisdom and actionable information for well-seasoned parents. 

Now Boundless Parenting is available as the ultimate audio experience, as each chapter's narration comes not just from me and my wife Jessa, but also from each contributing parent's voice. 

That’s right, you get to hear each parent read their chapter from their own perspective, making this audiobook come to life.

The parents, including my very own mom, my dad, myself, my wife, and many other models of practical parenting wisdom, delve into the fascinating realms of education, discipline, parenting, legacy, and so much more with specifics like:

  • The best methods for developing lifelong immunity, cellular resilience, mental toughness, and overall health in a child
  • How to manage your time, deal with overwhelm, care for yourself, and maintain high levels of productivity and health while raising children
  • Family mission statements to family brands, traditions, and routines that foster pride and a strong identity in children
  • Parents like Naveen Jain reveal how anyone can start a non-profit for their child for generational wealth building
  • The crazy, controversial primal secrets of “tiger dad” parents like The Liver King and Joe Desena
  • Lenore Skenazy on why she's America's Worst Mom (and why you should be too!)
  • Joseph Anew and Emilia Run's advice on respectful parenting, slowing down, and controversial topics like co-sleeping
  • Angie Fletcher on the intriguing traditions she began with her oldest child as a single, divorced mother
  • My own parents Gary and Pat Greenfield on how they raised me and my 4 siblings to approach the world in a far different, outside-the-box way compared to other kids
  • And much more!

I’ve even included a sneak peek just for you in a podcast I recorded, so you can start learning right here, right now!

Listen to me go over my love and logic parenting philosophy, how Boundless Parenting came to be, and other sections directly from the book.

Because parenting isn’t something you have to do alone. Remember the saying “It takes a village”? 

So here's the favor: Listen to the sneak peek and if it strikes your fancy, let my book and the incredible parents in it be your village. Check out the audiobook release of Boundless Parenting here.
