New Discoveries Of The Week: Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!

– Optimize with Brian Johnson is an awesome website and app for reading a ton of book synopses (or listening to them). Optimize was created with the busy but intellectually curious and goal-oriented entrepreneur, parent or athlete in mind who still craves a daily “ah-ha” moment but doesn't have time to dig into, say, Thich Naht Hahn's latest book, or the latest must-read health book. From insightful and in-depth synopses to full masterclasses on topics ranging from making 2018 the best year ever to Spartan training 101, Optimize.Me is rich with information to make your life better. I talked to the nice folks at Optimize and they're even knocking a buck a month off if you click this link and use code “BEN”.

– Deep Tissue Work At Night – If you listened to my podcast “The Mystery of the 95 Year Old Track Star and What She Can Teach Us About Living Longer, Happier Lives“, then you heard about how this 95-year-old track star named Olga would wake up at night and use a wine bottle to “knead” her areas of tissue that were knotted or adhesed. I've actually been keeping a foam roller called a “Rumble Roller” next to my bed, and “making love” to it for just a few minutes before I climb into bed, and then also keeping an “Oh-Ball” on my bedstand at night so I can do the same if I wake during the night. Results thus far? I wake up far less stiff and sore. Give it a try!

– 3-4 Daily “Cocktails”- In an attempt to maintain more ketosis and mainline more nutrients into my body, I'm on a bit of a kick where I consume 3-4 daily hot cocktails that I blend up in my Nutribullet blender. Mushrooms, cacao, MCT oils, coffees, stevia, collagen – you name it! Here's my favorite low-calorie, appetite-satiating blend thus far:

-2 tablespoons organic dark cacao
-8 ounces hot black coffee (I usually use swiss-water processed decaf)
-1 dropperful Omica Organics vanilla stevia
-1 scoop Keto Collagen
-1 tablespoon Pumpkin Spice Onnit emulsified MCT oil

Blend it all up and voila! Sip away during the workday.

::: ‘Dirty Genes' FREE Online Summit :::

Did you listen to my podcast with Dr. Ben Lynch? If you’ve ever tested your genes (or wanted to) and had a completely head-scratching experience when it comes to interpreting your results or translating your genetic testing results into actionable information, then read on.

Dr. Lynch quickly realized that there was a huge gap between what the geneticists published in their research papers and what the medical providers practiced in their offices. The scientists were ridiculously far ahead of doctors and nurses, who often had no idea how to help their patients respond to genetic abnormalities or even to follow the basics of good gene health. Nor did practitioners have any idea how to create a targeted program geared to specific genetic issues.

In 2015, he developed StrateGene, a unique approach to helping people develop natural strategies for overcoming genetic abnormalities. People who were getting their genetic challenges from websites like 23andMe or Genos Research were receiving massively confusing documents with wildly contradictory information. His system zeroes in on the genetic abnormalities that pose the greatest challenges in people’s health and then provides comprehensive plans for overcoming those challenges through diet, environment and lifestyle.

So, if you've completed genetic testing and you're afraid you've inherited a “master plan” with your genes…Characteristics that are written in stone…Conditions like depression, anxiety, ADHD, or even heart disease or cancer…NONE of that is true. Your genetic destiny is changeable, every moment of your life. And this event gives you the tools and information to fix your Dirty Genes.

::: True Cellular Detox with Ben 90-day Challenge :::

Whether you can’t seem to decimate a single fat cell and you’re experiencing brain fog, achy joints and serious lulls in energy OR want to blast your brain and body performance through the roof, look good naked, live as long as possible and feel amazing while doing it, this true cellular detox challenge will totally reboot your body. What is True Cellular Detoxification?

Think of your body as a bucket. Now imagine the toxins that surround us in daily life are the liquid that slowly fills that bucket. With each toxic exposure, drop-by-drop, your bucket becomes more full. A drop here and there isn’t such a big deal; however, chronic exposure to an onslaught of chemical, physical and emotional stressors fills up your bucket each day, and at some point, the bucket begins to overflow. It may take a few decades before your bucket spills over, but once it does, cellular inflammation is triggered and unwanted symptoms arise.

The True Cellular Detox™ process begins by determining which sources of stress may be causing body-wide damage and supporting the body’s natural ability to remove them. Removing the toxic source that has accumulated over time in the body is essential to getting results, and can be where health restoration begins. Get started here!

::: The Current State of Affairs on Stem Cell Therapy in the U.S. :::

Did you know the Texas legislature has passed a bill to make sure Texans have the right to stem cell therapies as a matter of personal privilege? This means the FDA can block access to these important rights and attempt to call your own stem cells a drug. Dang!

So, why are the FDA and local governments working against the release of stem cell therapy – keeping you from utilizing your very own stem cells to get well? And… how can you get the real, FULL STORY?

This Week's Most Popular Snapchat Story:

This week on Snapchat, I had a discussion with my wife in the bedroom at night about whether or not it was weird that I was going to sleep the entire night on a BioMat while wearing NormaTec recovery boots and while playing binaural beats through my noise-blocking headphones. She thought it was abnormal. I did not. You can find out many of my other strange habits by following me here on Snapchat
