Listener Q&A:

As compiled, deciphered, edited and sometimes read by Rachel Browne, the Podcast Sidekick.

Does Muscle Scraping Work?

Preston says: He's been seeing a personal trainer for the last month for his IT band and hamstring, they're very tight, he's 28 and never been able to touch his toes. For the last month they've been doing ridiculous stretches, but now his PT is beginning to use Gua Sha – the Chinese practice where they get inside your ligaments and scrape our whatever is built up to get blood flowing. Is muscle scraping good or is it woo woo?

In my response, I recommend:
Graston muscle scrapers

How To Detox Your Liver

Michelle says: She's from upstate New York, and she's wondering about liver cleanses. She's been seeing on YouTube that folks have been drinking a concoction of olive oil and lemon juice, then having a bowl movement where stones come out of their body that are supposed to be from their liver. It sounds like a cool way to purge toxins from you liver but she wants to get your thoughts to see if its safe or not?

In my response, I recommend:
Liver detox

Regenokine Stem Cell Therapy

Ross says: He's wondering what you think of stem cell therapy for treatment of injuries instead of surgery? Traditional doctors only seem to be interested in surgery and don't place much stock at all in the stem cell therapy, and the stem cell guys think stem cells are the way of the future. Regenics is the particular therapy he's thinking about, to repair articular cartilage damage in his knee, and he's wondering what you think?

Are Tattoos Unhealthy?

Karen says: She's an ultra purist for what she puts in and on your body, as she knows you are too. She's never heard anyone address tattoos and injecting ink into the body. Is it harmful, is it not? Do you think we'll find out in 20 years that it is? She would love to hear your response!

In my response, I recommend:
-National Tattoo Supply, Eternal, Skin Candy, Dynamic and Kuro Sumi

    I recently listened to a podcast where Ben talked about shaving symmetrically just incase something stopped him mid shave and it wouldn’t look so bad…..I was laughing out loud in the car when he was explaining his reasons.
    I work in the UK fire service and shave my head and face before a shift. I got called out mid shave recently with half my head and face shaved and the other half hairy????
    I think I’ll be shaving symmetrically from now on!!!
    Thanks for all the great podcast content. It keeps me going on my weekly 3 1/2 hour commute.

    Hey Ben, love your show, why the hate for Pharma companies? I thought you were pro business, pro capitalism! Oh wait… That bit of buzzword loaded intro was for the paranoid, sheeple in your inner circle ‘jerk’ that are too clueless to recognize their being duped by your expert show men. I bet know one even googles these people to see if there even real.
