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.

Listener Q&A:

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

Tips And Tricks For Donating Blood

Preston says: He donates blood often (he is O- and CMV- so his blood can be used for infants and children) and is wondering if there is something he can do while donating blood to get an added benefit. How to “hack” giving blood. Can he keep some to take it over to Labcore for testing or anything he can do to get an added benefit?

In my response, I recommend:
Iron bisyglycinate
Ferritin pyrophosphate (Floradix)

The Benefits Of Human Touch

Julian says: He heard Jack Kruse talk about how getting a massage can create an exchange of electrons. Jack said that it was a positive thing. Can you explain how that works (how we exchange electrons) and why it could be a good thing?

Best Natural Remedy For Toenail Fungus

Jimmy says: He has tried every kind of conventional remedy under the sun to cure his toenail fungus but none seem to work. Do you have any suggestions for something that will work and preferably be natural/healthy?

In my response, I recommend:
Oil of Oregano

Nutrition Tips For Burning Man

Gina says: She is heading to Burning Man soon and is looking for some tips on how to stay healthy during the week in the hot hot desert. She is packing some bars, nuts and coconut oil but is looking for some suggestions that wouldn't involve needing a lot of water or electricity.

In my response, I recommend:
-Pemmican or jerky (USWellnessMeats and/or Onnit and/or EpicBar)
-Meal replacement powder (LivingFuel)
Healthy dark chocolate
Chia seeds
-Spirulina/chlorella (use 10% discount code GREENFIELD at http://www.EnergyBits.com)

    Great podcast Ben and Brock-o-liffic. It was too scary funny because I was wearing compression socks, board shorts, but no v neck t shirt. At least I don’t have tattoos at all.

    Question: when can I buy your oil of oregano? It’s out of stock.
