Unique Essential Oils For Staying Healthy This Holiday Season
If you were around for this August Weekly Roundup, you might remember me mentioning Essential Oil Wizardry's energizing Kakanga root oil—one of the many go-to oils in their collection. Dr. Nick Berry, the original wizard and founder of Essential Oil Wizardry, is a trained pharmacist with a Ph.D. who has studied pharmacology extensively (and he also joined me on this podcast and this podcast).
If you're looking to boost your immune system, support your lungs, and heighten your vitality, then Dr. Nick has some great offerings to share with you this holiday season.
Essential Oil Wizardry (EOW) is kind of a one-stop shop for the world’s finest artisan essential oils and plant alchemy, way different than most other essential oils. They specialize in sourcing organic and wildcrafted essential oils, CO2 extracts, and rare, precious, and exotic floral absolutes from all over the planet. Offering 333+ different essential oil products, including their unique essential oil blends (Wizard Alchemy Blends), they provide tremendous value, high-quality products & tailored service just for you.
Providing the highest quality essential oils on the market, Essential Oil Wizardry has an arsenal of therapeutic medicine to support you through the winter germ and holiday stress season. Respire is their best-selling essential oil blend for good reason as it is documented to have potent anti-viral properties – and it pairs pretty darn good with a breathwork or sauna session too. Designed to open the lungs, Respire is an effective anti-microbial matched with a pleasant flavor profile. I typically put some on my hands, cup my hands over my nose, and take a deep breath in—then it's blast-off. I mean, I feel as though my whole head goes clear as a bell with this Respire.
You can also keep your immune system bolstered during the flu and COVID season (though it feels like COVID “season” is never-ending, huh?) using organic extracts from nature's pharmacy with Essential Oil Wizardry's Immune Support Set. The goal of this set is to reduce stress and provide botanical allies to stimulate your immune system and provide anti-microbial tools to stave off and minimize an active infection. Certain essential oils (ie. eucalyptus, tea tree, thyme) have been demonstrated to stimulate white blood cells in the body to enhance the body's innate immunity while also providing anti-bacterial, anti-viral, or anti-fungal support.
If you're looking for unique oils that are actually effective and that you can feel right away, look no further. ;) Check out Essential Oil Wizardry for their full selection, and use the coupon code ‘ben’ at checkout for 10% off your purchases.
The Most Advanced Anti-Aging Medical Protocol That Exists, Bar None
I recently spent some at a health conference with the renowned Dr. Harry Adelson, who offers the most comprehensive stem cell upgrade ever conceived: The Full-Body Stem Cell Makeover®.
Dr. Adelson invented the protocol, refining it over a period of years, and I was one of the first people to receive it four years ago. From my own experience, I am now convinced this full-body stem cell makeover is the best medical practice one can do for turning back the clock, period.
Here's how it works: You get sedated and then he takes your bone marrow stem cells and concentrates them into bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC), a “broth” rich in stem cells. He then activates VSELs (Very Small Embryonic Stem Cells) from the blood. Then the magic happens. Every major musculoskeletal structure in the body is injected. Your entire spine, from the base of the skull to the tailbone, on both sides at every level, and all major joints get flooded with stem cells.
This protocol is expensive. Not everybody can afford it, and I totally get that. But for those folks who truly want to treat their bodies like a Tesla, Ferrari, or Lamborghini, this procedure is a no-brainer.
Dr. Adelson has performed over 200 of these and I’ll be receiving the treatment for the second time in March 2022.
You can click here to visit the website for his clinic to contact them and set up your procedure. Mention my name and they'll take good care of you.

My team and I are all set to embark on yet another Transformation Challenge that will radically impact the lives of 200 lucky participants. While any type of “heath transformation challenge” typically is focused on weight loss, this year will be different for those joining Team Boundless in the New Year’s Transformation Challenge.
With a more holistic approach in mind, we will be tapping into the mental, physical, and spiritual aspects that make us tick. By hacking into these various aspects of our beings, the goal is to upgrade your human system as a whole.
Diving deep into topics such as sleep, fitness, nutrition, recovery, spiritual practices, and much more, I am confident that this challenge will have an enormous ripple effect on those who join us and the people around them.
Having daily workout programming via free access to the Ladder app, each challenge participant will also receive a personalized nutrition protocol for the duration of the Challenge.
The deadline for sign-ups is January 2nd, with January 10th being the start date of this 6-week Transformation Challenge.
ARE YOU UP FOR THE CHALLENGE?! Learn more and save your spot today at www.BenGreenfieldCoaching.com/Challenge.
Product Of The Week
::: Save 10% On A Euphoric, All-Natural Alternative To Alcohol :::
Kava is a natural drink prepared from the roots of a plant native to islands in the South Pacific, called Piper Methysticum, where it has been consumed for its non-habit forming relaxing and social enhancing qualities for over 3,000 years.
Kava historically has been used by the islanders as a safe, natural alternative to drugs and alcohol, because it can bring about significant mood-boosting, cognitive enhancing, and anxiety-relieving effects. This allows users to loosen up and connect easier during social interactions while maintaining complete sobriety.
In the islands, kava is known to also improve one’s mental and emotional state of being over time. This is due to its unique entheogenic ability to bring about introspective and creative thinking, which has been documented to make users more empathetic and mentally healthy over time. Perhaps the main draw to kava is that it provides these effects without any of the drunkenness that can impair fine motor skills and is completely non-addictive. Kava’s effects are often described as a calm, enhanced state of natural sobriety.
However, most kava products currently on the market are not classified as true kava. Traditional kava has always been the only form that provides full therapeutic effects. Most products on the market are instead kava-like products that carry almost none of the same effects or safety as traditional kava.
TRU KAVA™ traditional kava products are shelf-stable, full-spectrum, and 3rd party lab tested for quality and safety:
- KAVAPLEX™ premium kava oil: with their proprietary extraction method of high pressure at very low temperatures, TRU KAVA captures the full contents of the traditional kava drink in a lightly filtered, ready-to-use oil form.
- TRU KAVA™ Shot: a ready-to-drink compact 2oz shot that captures the full array of constituents found in the traditional kava drink.
- TRU KAVA™ Sparkling Kava Drink (coming soon): The market’s very first shelf-stable traditional kava drink in the form of a delicious carbonated beverage that can be enjoyed in any casual or social situation as a unique alternative to beer, soda, or kombucha.

Introducing My New Training Program!
This week, I announced I will be launching my new training program, Boundless, exclusively on the Ladder app. With my program, I will provide you with my own personal training plan every week, including 5 Tabata/bodyweight sessions, 1 active recovery session, and 1 day dedicated to “biohacking.”
This is the next best thing to training with me in person and at an incredible rate. In addition to programming, you’ll get access to a community of individuals who will also help hold you accountable.
So no more guessing. No more planning. No more excuses. Boundless will take care of all of that for you. We begin training together as a team on Monday, September 20th. To secure your spot, join my waitlist and you’ll get your first week of training FREE.
I Want To Know What You've Got Cooking
I'm so stoked about the positive feedback I've been getting about my new Boundless Cookbook. The cookbook was a labor of love, but I'm really proud of the end result (especially considering I'm definitely not a trained chef).
Now that the Boundless Cookbook is available on Amazon, I have a favor to ask…
If you have the cookbook and you love it, can you hop on over to Amazon and leave a review? Amazon reviews—as I bet you know—are super important. I want your honest feedback and I'll be reading them to hear what you think.
You can leave your review on Amazon right here (and if you don't have a cookbook yet, and you're an Amazon Prime member, you could have your copy at your doorstep as early as tomorrow).
Kion Product Of The Week: Rich, Mouthwatering Kion Coffee
Kion Coffee is the only coffee that meets my strict standards for health benefits, purity, and freshness. Period.
Other coffee companies are unwilling to do what my company, Kion, is doing to ensure these health benefits—every decision made regarding this coffee formulation is based on health.
So, what’s so special about Kion Coffee?
Kion Coffee is certified organic, rich in antioxidants, rigidly tested for toxins, contains ZERO mold, is packaged using the highest industry standards, and—most importantly—is the best-tasting coffee I've ever had.
*The FDA hasn't evaluated these statements. Kion products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
