Listener Q&A:

As compiled, deciphered, edited and sometimes read by Brock Skywalker Armstrong, the Podcast Sidekick and Audio Ninja.

How To Make A Wart Disappear Fast

Chris says: What can he do about this wart on the end of his toe? He has tried salicylic acid, freezing and cutting it off but none of these methods are ineffective and painful. Is there any way he can rid himself of them forever?

In my response, I recommend:
Lemon Essential Oil

Does Subliminal Music For Weight Loss Work?

There'sa says: She wants to know your take on Subliminal Music. She works from home she really enjoys some background noise. She has found some music that is supposed to help you willpower, weight loss, make you strong and powerful. Do you think these can actually help in the long run?

How Long Can Fat Last You In A Race?

Cy says: What is the longest duration race or most austere race you have heard someone race on a ketogenic diet. He is thinking about a number of 8 to 24 hour adventure races this summer and is wondering if it is possible to maintain a fat burning base during that long of a race or if he would have to bump it up to a more standard carbohydrate base.

Is Xylitol Healthy?

Randy says: You recently talked about how mouthwash can kill gut bacteria. It got him thinking about Xylitol and how it is used to kill bacteria in your mouth (which is why it is effective in gum). Could this highly touted sweetener of the biohacking community be killing our gut flora? What are your thoughts on Xylitol? He has been using it in his morning coffee for quite a while now.

How To Increase Testosterone And Decrease Estrogen

Adam says: In your morning routine post you said that you take both the Aggressive Strength testosterone and an estrogen control. Why do you take both? Do they offset each other in a good way? What is the balance there?

  1. Mitch says:

    Ben, how often do you recommend taking Test/Est stack on a daily basis? Will once in the AM do the trick or should I be adding extra on training days?

    1. It depends on the stack but generally five days on two days off is a decent weekly cycle with a morning dosage.

      1. Mitch says:

        Thanks–I’m doing the Test Booster and Estrogen Control. Suggested above. I’ve been taking 5 days a week but only one serving of each in the AM and wondering if I need to take an additional serving in the afternoon for optimal results? I’m 165lbs

  2. feelgoodeating says:

    Ben, been following and enjoying your podcasts for a while now. First comment:
    in regards to TM, there is a TM of shoot called " Ishaya/Ascension". I was taught it in 2000.
    See if there are teachers in your area. Basic class is called First Sphere.
    It is the easiest to master/learn quickly and most powerful things I've come across.
    Mantra repetition based like TM.
    Let me know if you need more info…
    Thanks for sharing all the goodies regularly.

  3. Paul B says:

    I don’t know of a TM App but I use the Sleepstream binaural beat app. If u buy the premium version you get loads of different beats for Sleep, meditation, energy, focus, etc etc. you also get white & pink noise overlays plus loads of others like rain, drones, wind chimes. I often use it for lunchtime power naps and also at night if I have difficuly sleeping. Never tried the energy, focus or meditation beats but can defo recommend the sleep ones.

  4. Kai Brenner says:

    Ben check out Hemi-sync audio programs, it comes from a military program.

  5. dustin_ says:

    Would lemon essential oil work on anything else? I'm specifically wondering how to get rid of a lipoma (skin lump). Thanks!

    1. There's tons of great info about that type of thing in this podcast – https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/2014/10/how-t… and also this one https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/2012/06/how-s…

  6. Dan says:

    Have you tested before and after T levels when using the Aggressive Strength? A bio-hack to see if it does work. I don’t want to buy another supplement with out it being beneficial and proven.

    Thanks again Ben for all the info you provide.

    1. Absolutely. I have seen a big difference in my lab numbers since I started taking it.
