It’s time for another entertaining and hopefully heartwarming and informative podcast with one of my dear family members: my younger brother Zach Greenfield.

My father, Gary Greenfield, joined me on the podcast episode “Why Water, Sunlight, Grounding & Relationships Are The Keys To Your Health & How To Feed, Clean & Protect Your Body Forever,” during which we discussed his history of coming to Idaho from Miami (with the dream of becoming a farmer) and how he eventually became an expert in the water filtration industry, his journey from evangelical Christianity to orthodox and much more.

Later, my mom, Pat Greenfield, joined me on the episode “Ben Greenfield Interviews His Mom: Homeschooling, Coffee Shops, Writing, Music & More,” in which we discussed my upbringing, homeschooling, trauma, and much more.

And now this podcast episode features my younger brother Zach Greenfield, who is the director of operations at Greenfield Water Solutions. Prior to coming on board with the family business in 2021, Zach worked for the past 18 years as a flight paramedic, and firefighter paramedic in Los Angeles, CA and the Pacific Northwest. During this time Zach also started and ran a successful private label Amazon FBA business, which he sold in 2019. Zach resides in Liberty Lake, WA with his two daughters, Rowan and Zofia, 12 and 8 years old. In his spare time, Zach is finishing his nursing degree, enjoys skiing and fitness, spending time with friends and family, and enjoying the Pacific Northwest outdoors.

  1. Brian Dennis says:

    Any thoughts about developing a filtration system that incorporates hydrogen or brown gas (hydrogen + oxygen)?

  2. way of the alchemist says:

    the most advanced water filter would not use any filter, but a field that transmutes any liquid into potable source water. but field science is taboo, (quantum-) particles rule universities, until now. but in age of transparency this ancient science can not be withheld anymore and will have a big comeback, great times ahead.

    1. Gary, the owner, performed an experiment in India purifying water with no physical filtration media, you can read about it here:

    2. Mike says:

      There is a way of purifying water without a filter. It’s called “Distilled Water” and it’s been around for a long long time. It strips the water of all of the minerals so it’s pretty bland, but various vendors make mineral additives that you can use to add to give it a better taste. If you’d like to learn about it and maybe run experiments and make your own. Here is a link
