How to Use A Squatty Potty
Jeff says: During your presentation at the Unbeatable Mind Retreat, you briefly touched on how something like the Squatty Potty can help align your body for better pooping… but somehow a number of audience members got the wrong idea about how it works and thought it was more like a child's potty or a commode that needed to be emptied into the toilet. So, when you mentioned that when you are travelling you just drag a hotel room chair in to the bathroom to use, people were horrified/perplexed. Can you explain how it REALLY works so everyone is not terrified to stay in a hotel room after you?

How To Reverse Tooth Cavities
Anne says: She recently went to the dentist and found out that she has a cavity forming between two of her back teeth. The cavity is just in the enamel, so she doesn't need a filling. The dentist said that these types of cavities can stabilize or even reverse. Do you have any suggestion on how to stop this cavity from getting worse or even help reverse it?

Natural Tooth Whitening Remedies
Ellie says: She has a vanity question – do you have any natural remedies for whitening your teeth? She has heard that the over the counter whitening strips can really damage your body. Is there a better way to improve your finish line photo smile?

Does Roundup Cause Gluten Intolerance?
Deb says: She was recently reading information about Roundup (Glyphosate) and how that may be the reason why so many people think they are gluten intolerant but may just be ingesting some pretty toxic chemicals. She is celiac and so doesn't believe in gluten anyway…but is interested to know your thoughts on the potential issues with Roundup.
What Is The Healthiest Cookware?
Jerrod says: (He saw you in Vermont by the memory test before the rope climb. He wants you to get out for the ultra beast.) He spent stupid amounts of money on “good” pots and pans that turned out to be total crap and is wondering what he really should be using to cook with. What kinds of pots and pans do you use (or do you just put things on a stick over a fire, now that you live in the forest)? He is worried about the potential stuff that is seeping into his food.

How To Prevent Overheating During Exercise.
John says: A couple weeks ago he suffered severe heat stroke after a marathon. His temperature reached 108 degrees, they packed him in ice and it took 20 minutes to get back down to 102 degrees. The doc said he showed signs of heart problems and maybe stroke. His vitals returned to normal after a couple hours but he has had a constant head ache for 10 days. Is there anything he can do to avoid this overheating issue in the future? Hydration or electrolytes? Also he wants to make sure that he is ok (especially the heart issues or stroke) and would like to know what types of checkups/tests he should get to make sure he didn't do any permanent damage.
