New Greenfield Longevity Panels. Working closely with WellnessFX, America's top laboratory for concierge blood testing and online access to all your blood testing results, Ben has developed the “Greenfield Longevity Blood Testing Package”, which is the most complete blood testing package that money can buy. There is one package specifically designed for men, and one for women. This is by far the most comprehensive blood testing package that exists, and Ben created it for the health enthusiast, biohacker and anti-aging individual who wants access to the same type of executive health panel and screening that would normally cost tens of thousands of dollars at a longevity institute. Virtually all hormones and all biomarkers are covered in this panel.

Ben Greenfield has officially launched his first work of fiction: “The Forest”. Twin brothers River and Terran discover a portal to a hidden forested world attacked by parasitic fungi, dark shamans, and serpents. Along with an assembled band of unlikely misfits that includes coyotes, whitetail deer, wood thrushes, and fox squirrels, they must unlock their unique powers to control the elements of earth, air, fire and water, and save the forest before the evil they've uncovered can spill back into their own world. Click here to read it now! New chapters released every 7-14 days.

Listener Q&A:

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

Is Baby Powder Healthy?

Preston says: He is fresh out of the shower and wants to know your opinion about Baby Powder (specifically talc). Is there a link to cancer? He sees stuff online but is it true?

In my response, I recommend:
EWG's list of talc containing podcasts
HammerNutrition.com Cool Feet (use 15% 80244)

The Best Workout To Look Good Naked

Anonymous says: She feels too big in her clothes. She doesn't want to be super skinny (with a big thigh gap or anything) but she would like to be thin. The catch: she doesn't want to exercise or go on a diet, she just wants to eat normally. Is this even possible?

Can You Reverse Tooth Cavities?

Chad says: Recently he went to the dentist and they say he needs a root canal. He did some research and has seen that there can be some deleterious effects, long term, from root canals. He would like your opinion and would also like to know if you know of a way to reverse the early stages of an abscess.

How To Get A Stronger Neck

Brock says: I have a serious crick in my neck. The stiffness has been getting worse and worse over the last year (since falling asleep on a plane) to the point where I actually avoid doing long rides on my road bike and primarily ride my commuter. Is there anything I can do myself to strengthen my neck and loosen up adhesions/tightness in there? I am reluctant to go too hard on those little neck muscles and ligaments because they seem very delicate.

  1. Peter Fernandez says:

    Hi – what’s the specific evergreen essential oil that you mention using in your office, and what diffuser do you use?



    1. Thieves essential oil and any of the cold air diffusers off Amazon or a vacuum that can diffuse using water, such as Rainbow vac.

  2. Nicole says:

    I appreciate your response on how to look better naked but wish you would have mentioned the body image issues involved as well.

  3. yoli2k says:

    Couple more questions., i am 51 years old. Am I suppose too only do your Protocol and stop everything else i am doing? (Too look better naked) How do I make this plan into a weekly schedule? It seems like everyday would be some sort of Hight Intensity workout with no rest days. How is this doable till past your 80's?
    Thanks, love listening to your podcasts!!

  4. yoli2k says:

    Hi Ben, on the 7 minute workout, do you "go all out" while doing push ups, sit ups, step ups and so on? Or just on the Jumping Jacks and High Steppers?

  5. Vincent says:

    Is there any trouble when removing wisdom tooth?

    1. You DEFINITELY want to work with a holistic dentist to do that. But it has fewer of the bacterial issues as root canals.

  6. SGD says:

    I liked the basic “fit for life” week you shared: 7 minute bodyweight circuit, etc. Could you share the other sessions and frequency? Would be great to have them in writing. Thanks for all you do.

    1. Wait for the podcast transcript or go back and listen again. ;) Ultimately these are many of the same concepts and strategies myself and many of the other https://greenfieldfitnesssystems.com coaches use.
