In this June 11, 2009 free audio episode:

The past several weeks, you've heard me talk quite a bit about the fact that minerals are needed for almost every bodily function (click here for a related interview on Transdermal Magnesium Therapy with Dr. Mark Sircus). Minerals are essential to enzymes, hormones, skeletal bones, teeth, fluids, proteins, DNA, and are critical for the utilization of vitamins. And they're highly deficient in most Americans, because our soils are stripped of what they actually need. As a result, our food does not contain adequate minerals.

-What does this have to do with Ayurvedic Medicine? In this podcast, I interview Ayurvedic Medicinist “Ambaya” from AmbayaGold.com. During out talk, Ambaya explains:

-The core concepts behind Ayurvedic Medicine, including the identity of two crucial compounds “Fulvic Acid” and “Humic Acid” that can be harvested from rich soil deep within the earth, and utilized for mineral replacement…

-The identity of a special volcanic ore that, when isolated and consumed, may carry heavy metals, chemicals and pathogenic bacteria safely out of the cells and harmlessly out of the body…

-An introduction to “monatomic elements”, and why these small, rarely discussed minerals are crucial to human health, immune system and performance…

-The exact identity of the most common ionic minerals that you probably aren't getting, and how to actually ensure that you are optimizing your health through their consumption…

-Ambaya's exact 5 steps to completely optimizing your health, detoxifying your body, achieving a state of super hydration and maintaining this type of “super-human” emotional, mental and physical status for the rest of your life…

-And much, much more!

During the interview, there are methods revealed for restoring hydration, removing obstacles that impede our health such as toxins and heavy metals, and restoring the life giving minerals, elements, vitamins and amino acids that are seriously lacking in all our diets – even when we’re eating the best of foods.

-Listener Q&A:

Listener Sherry asks: “I've heard that something called “Electromagnetic Fields” (EMF) can be damaging to your health. Is that true, and if so, how can I avoid them?” Click here to learn more about the Gunnar Optik glare-shielding glasses that I mention in my response, which you can wear to protect your eyes if you are working on a computer for long periods of time.

Listener Buddy asks: “I’ve noticed that there’s been some really great info. specifically about prostate and prostate health for men and I love to share this with my husband as well as my father.  However, I would love to hear additional info. that is women specific.  You mentioned that your wife introduced you to the sport of triathlon so I’d love to hear from her or maybe you could use your female clients for some research.  A couple of requested items that would be helpful to have an expert like you chime in on, training during our menstrual cycle, peri-menopause and menopause, exercise during pregnancy, women specific supplements etc.”

Also featured in the listener Q&A: metabolic efficiency of speed-walking vs. jogging, and swimming the breaststroke rather than the freestyle in triathlon!

-You're not going to want to miss the action over at the Shape21 Lean Body Challenge website. There are photos, videos, and much, much more. How much fat can the human body lose in 63 days? Here's a story from one participant (click here to see photos and videos):

“”Hi, I am a 56 year old male who is overweight by about 35 pounds. I have been reasonably active in the past but not so much in the past 8 months. I was a vegatarian until about a month ago, but had a craving for meat. I don't take medication and would probably look good in a before and after photo comparison. And I want to lose this weight!”

10 days in…

“First week, lost 9 pounds. I weigh in every Friday so I don’t know how I've done this week. I'm totally wasted, but feeling good. I think the “favorite exercise” for me is reverse squats, which are the hardest for me to do and seem to really burn, so I know they're working. I like the recovery shake, with kefir and protein powder. I'm feeling good that I am dedicating this time for myself and my health!”

20 days in…

“Hi Ben! Lost as of this morning 13.7 lbs. I can feel the strength increasing over my entire body. I would say my favorite workout of the week was the one where I do 5 sets of mostly upper body stuff, overheads, rows, curls, etc.  By the end of that I could hardly raise my arms! I like the after workout drinks a lot.  It feels satisfying to replenish myself with those. I feel proud that I have dedicated the time to do this, and this week for the first time I did both the cardio and workout together.”

Ask Ben a Podcast Question

  1. Lisa Loosle says:

    Hi Ben,

    I need some advice on which supplement to start taking. The EnerEssence I or EnerEssence II. I'm 43, have had 3 kids, and have run 12 marathons since 2006. I know I'm definitely pre-menopausal, just wondering if it would be more beneficial for me to take the EnerEssence II. What would you advise?



    1. An answer from Kim, at Impax:

      EnerEssence II has so many more vitamins. She is most definitely
      depleting her body at a faster rate with the marathons and such so I
      would believe it would be beneficial to take the EEII.

      We have several woman taking it in their 40’s. One woman has terrible
      headaches and moodswings. The EEII completely removes those issues from
      her life. The EEI did not have the same effect for her.

      If she were concerned about a healthy uterus for child birth, the EEI
      has more Silica, Bioflavnoids and a few others that have shown
      beneficial for cysts and menstral issues.

      I take the EEII and am 48 and pre-menopausal as well because I want to
      ensure I go gracefully into menopause when it happens!
