Naveen Jain On How To Become A Billionaire, Anti-Aging & Much More!

Naveen Jain is an entrepreneur and philanthropist who is driven to solve the world’s biggest challenges through innovation. A man who knows no limits, Naveen pushes big dreams into action—spurring massive cultural and technological change. His audacious vision and magnetic personality continually inspires others to follow what feels impossible.

The founder of Moon Express, World Innovation Institute, iNome, TalentWise, Intelius, and Infospace, Naveen sees beyond the current business and technological landscape, creating companies that make a true impact.

Ernst and Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year, Silicon India’s “Most Admired Serial Entrepreneur,” and the receiver of the “Albert Einstein Technology Medal” for his pioneers in technology, Naveen has been repeatedly honored for his entrepreneurial successes. Red Herring also recognized him as one of the “Top 20 Serial Entrepreneurs” and with the “Lifetime Achievement Award.”

Naveen Jain’s next endeavor is to travel to the moon, using lunar resources for innovation here on earth.

Whether it’s business or life, Naveen is guided by one firm belief – our only limit is our imagination.

In my first episode with Naveen, “Age Reversing Via The Gut, The Ultimate Anti-Anxiety Pill, Customized Probiotics & More With Billionaire Entrepreneur & Viome Founder Naveen Jain.”, we discussed:

  • Why Naveen thinks most microbiome evaluations are complete snake oil…
  • How Naveen licensed $21 million gut sequencing technology from Los Alamos laboratory…
  • Naveen’s shocking prediction about the next big thing in health care…
  • And much more…

Then, in my second episode with Naveen, Poop, Bacteria & You: The Latest Cutting-Edge Science Of The Human Microbiome (& How To Affordably Test Your Own Gut)., we discussed:

  • Whether or not human microbiomes “evolve” with changing technology and civilization trends such as the industrial revolution…
  • How Viome can use a single stool sample to determine the overall health of your gut…
  • How you know whether the disease is causing the microbiome to be deleteriously affected, or whether a poor microbiome is causing the disease…
  • And much more…

(You may also be interested in watching or hearing Dr. Ally Perlina, Viome’s chief science officer, go over the results of my own microbiome analysis.)

In this podcast, Naveen travels to my home in Spokane, Washington and we chat about the latest in longevity, life, and the latest innovations in fitness, mental health, and immunity—plus the latest on mitochondria, biological aging, and cellular health.

-The big questions that propel Naveen’s quest for knowledge…19:30

  • “Why me?” and “Why now?”
  • We are not genetically predisposed to chronic disease
  • Excessive focus on genetics (genes don’t change, the expression does)
  • Digitizing the human body: chemical signals transmitted through the brain and body
  • Change biochemical activity via diet and lifestyle to attain desired objective
    • What if? – The key to starting anything in life; Do not worry about the “How?”
  • Too much faith in testing; we all have different genes
  • Personalization and precision in testing genes, the microbiome, etc.
  • Tech is more accessible and affordable than ever before
  • AI can interpret data that wasn’t possible even 10 years ago
  • “What is it I believe that most people disagree on?”
  • Not the right answer, but the right question


-How the gut microbiome affects the chemical signaling in our bodies…34:00

  • Over 40 trillion cells in our body, generating chemicals we ignore while focused on DNA and genes
  • “Micro poops” signal to the human body what to do
  • 90% of serotonin produced in the gut (by your own epithelial cells, waiting on signaling from the bacteria in your body)
  • Worry more about what organisms in your gut are doing, rather than what organisms are in the gut
  • More diversity of microorganisms in the mouth than in the gut (less than 1% in quantity but diversity is higher)
  • Benefits of chewing food adequately and in a relaxed state
    • Sends signals to the gut on what’s to come
    • Symmetrical issues if not adequate, or food too soft
  • Alzheimer’s may be traced to leaky gut syndrome

  • Fasted exercise induces AMP-K (cellular stress)
    • AMP-K significantly increases PGC1-α, the master regulator for mitochondrial biogenesis
  • Metformin, berberine, etc. induce xenohormetic stress (exercise in a bottle)
  • Cellular senescence results in excess aging and inflammation
    • Consumption of NAD, NMN, NR, etc. exacerbates cellular senescence
    • Senescent cells, in youth, can assist in anabolism (pro-growth); as these accumulate with age, can result in excess aging and increased risk of chronic disease and inflammation
  • Docs who administer NAD utilize anti-senescent cell compounds

-A method of testing that is truly personalized to the individual…56:15

  • Testing multiple pathways leads to more educated decisions on nutrients, supplements, etc.; quantity of said compounds
  • Health Intelligence does 2 things: gut microbiome test and blood test combined
  • To be launched soon: Whole-body Intelligence – saliva, stool, blood
  • True personalization vs. categorization
    • Demographics (gender, race, etc. are categories)
    • Look at an individual at the molecular level
    • Precision supplements, nutrients, etc.
  • A solution made to order for each individual based on molecular testing
  • AI and robotics drive production costs down
  • Whole foods vs. supplementation:
    • Supplements are not an alternative to whole foods
    • Eat the right food, avoid the bad food; supplement to fill in the gaps
  • Health Intelligence tells you what foods to eat and why; what foods to avoid and why; and then the additional nutrients
  • Precision supplements – One nutrient found in a food may be given, but not the entire food; some other nutrient in the food may not be good for an individual (You have to eat ≈20lbs of blueberries to get the same amount of nutrients you get from a 12mg capsule)

-The “flywheel” concept in running a business…1:03:20

  • Product constantly changing and evolving
  • The value always increasing with each client or product sold
  • Every person part of the ecosystem making everyone else better, before and in the future
  • “How am I making this customer a better person with each transaction?”
  • Technology itself cannot solve the problem of learning
  • Collecting data, customizing the experience, use AI to constantly improve the experience
  • “Moonshot thinking” (why now, why me?) – outside the box thinking
  • Tim Ferris: “What could go wrong with this decision?”
  • Create scenarios that seem silly; may lead to a viable solution
  • Create a team to do the things you can’t do, or don’t know
  • Never ask, “Is this possible?” Say, “Make this possible…”
  • An entrepreneur is someone who solves a problem, not necessarily a business owner, CEO, etc.

-The case for space exploration in the midst of a slew of problems here on Earth…1:16:30

  • Scarcity mindset: If I do this, I can’t do that. Should be: If I can do this, I can also do that
  • Planet Earth is a spacecraft; alternate home if it gets damaged
  • The planet will be fine; worry about the human species
  • Ben’s essay: “Our Father’s World

-Recommended resources to think like a billionaire…1:20:40

  • Read one book, the author’s view becomes your view; read 10 books, there are 11 views: the ten authors’ +yours
  • Just because it’s written or published doesn’t make it true
  • Read that which is tangential; the solution to a problem often lies in a different field or industry
  • Singularity University
  • TED Talks

    • Immune system health
    • Stress response health
    • Biological age

-The most remarkable thing Naveen has done for his health in the past year…1:32:00

  • Changed diet significantly (there’s no such thing as a healthy or worst food; it all depends on the individual)
    • Sometimes, nutrients in food are not enough so supplementing is required
  • Do something interesting every day:
    • Gratitude journaling and feeling that you are learning new things everyday
    • Am I intellectually better today than yesterday? Am I emotionally better today than yesterday? Am I spiritually better today than yesterday?
    • The day you stop growing, the day you stop learning, is the day you actually die
    • Why not? What if? Why can’t it be done? Imagine!
  • Live the life!
  • Ben’s re-write of the Christian Gratitude Journal, The Spiritual Disciplines Journal, involves 4 different practices
    • In the morning:
      • What you are grateful for?
      • Write down one person you can help or serve that day
    • In the evening:
      • Self-examination – What good have I done this day? What could I have done better this day?
      • How did I best live out my life’s purpose this day?
    • The journal encompasses multiple variants of Spiritual Disciplines practices
      • Gratitude
      • Service

Holistic Dental Care, Charcoal Toothpaste, Crucial Oral Health Tips & More

I recently read two excellent beauty, wellness, and self-care books—one focused on oral health and holistic dental care, and the other on overall beauty.

The author of both books is Nadine Artemis, who is also my guest on today’s podcast.

Her first book that I read, Holistic Dental Care: The Complete Guide to Healthy Teeth and Gums, is a comprehensive guide to natural, do-it-yourself oral care that introduces simple, at-home dental procedures anyone can do. Highlighted with 53 full-color photos and illustrations, this book offers dental self-care strategies and practices that get to the core of the problems in our mouths—preventing issues from taking root and gently restoring dental health. Based on a “whole-body approach” to oral care, Holistic Dental Care addresses the limits of the traditional approach that treats only the symptoms and not the source of body imbalances.

Taking readers on a tour of the ecology of the mouth, dental health expert and author Nadine describes the physiology of the teeth and the sources of bacteria and decay. Revealing the truth about the artificial chemicals in many toothpastes and mouthwashes, Nadine also discusses the harmful effects of mercury fillings and the much safer ceramic filling options that are available. Covering topics that include healthy nutrition, oral care for children, and the benefits of botanical substances and plant extracts for maintaining oral health, Nadine introduces a comprehensive eight-step self-dentistry protocol that offers an effective way to prevent decay, illness, acidic saliva, plaque build-up, gum bleeding, inflammation, and more.

Nadine’s second book, Renegade Beauty: Reveal and Revive Your Natural Radiance–Beauty Secrets, Solutions, and Preparations, teaches you how to rethink conventional notions of beauty and wellness, abandon established regimes and commercial products, and embrace your “renegade” beauty. In this essential full-color guide, Nadine introduces you to the concept of “renegade” beauty—a practice of doing less and allowing the elements and the life force of nature to revive the body, skin, and soul so your natural radiance can shine through. Anyone stuck in perpetual loops of new products, facials, and dermatologist appointments will find answers as she illuminates the energizing elements of sun, fresh air, water, the earth, and plants. This book is a comprehensive resource for anyone who wants to simplify their self-care routine, take their health into their own hands, and discover their own radiant beauty.

So who is Nadine, exactly?

She is the creator of Living Libations (use code BEN to save 15%), a luxury line of organic wild-crafted non-GMO serums, elixirs, and essential oils for those seeking the purest of the pure botanical natural health and beauty products on the planet. She is an innovative aromacologist, developing immune-enhancing formulas and medicinal blends for health and wellness.

Her healing creations—along with her concept of renegade beauty—encourage effortlessness, eschew regimes and inspire people to rethink conventional notions of beauty and wellness. Her potent dental serums are used worldwide and provide the purest oral care available. She is a key speaker at health and wellness conferences and a frequent commentator on health and beauty for media outlets.  She has received glowing reviews for her work in the Hollywood Reporter, GOOP, Vogue, People, Elle, Yoga Journal, Natural Health, W Magazine, The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and National Post.

Her celebrity fans and customers include Shailene Woodley, Renee Zellweger, Julianne Moore, Carrie Anne Moss, Mandy Moore, First Lady of Canada Sophie Trudeau, and many others. Alanis Morissette describes  Nadine as “a true sense-visionary”; and Aveda founder, Horst Rechelbacher, calls Nadine “a pure flower of creativity.” And on top of all that, Nadine opened the first full-concept aromatherapy store in North America at just 22 years old.

During this discussion, you’ll discover:

-Nadine’s personal history in the realm of beauty and symmetry…6:52

  • Natural curiosity about nature and independent spirit from a very young age
  • Curiosity and experimentation intensified in college
  • Discovered Lisa Bonet (Denise on the Cosby Show) on the Donahue show
  • Led into a deep dive into health, nutrition, etc.; understanding of the grocery store conglomerate
  • Some crafty labeling practices in common food and beauty items:
    • Natural substances are grown, then isolated, from which synthetic substances are created (ex. menthol from peppermint)
    • Pure rose otto oil is $20k per kilo; synthetic rose oil is $20 per kilo
    • How it’s made, the cost of labor, where the raw materials come from, is a factor in the price

-How your teeth derive nutrients from your gut via a “dentinal flow”…14:25

  • Book: Why Raise Ugly Kids by Dr. Hal Huggins
  • Dr. Ralph Steinman
    • Previous belief (until the 1950s) was that a tooth was a dead appendage in the mouth; cavities occurred due to acids and sugars on the teeth
    • Steinman eliminated severe allergies by removing “white food” from his diet (bread, sugar, milk, etc.)
    • Technique using fluorescent dye to trace the dentinal flow of lymphatic fluid
  • How the fluid system works:
    • The teeth draw from the nutrients in the gut via the lymphatic type fluid that flows up to and through the roots of the teeth into the pulp chamber; fluid gets pushed into the pulp chamber, pushed up and out unto the teeth through the odontoblast, where it’s like a microbead on the enamel
    • This results in a microscopic perspiration in the teeth
    • Coalesces with the saliva to form a natural protection for the teeth
    • Flushes toxins, brings in nutrients
    • Journey starts in the mouth; connects in the gut via the hypothalamus
    • We chew and those substrates activate the parotid glands, the largest salivary gland in the mouth, and that releases communications to the hypothalamus
  • Stress in the body, mineral imbalance, cell phone use near the mouth, causes this dentinal flow to stagnate
  • The flow reverses when the stressors are not addressed; acids build up on the teeth, causing cavities
  • Fluoride can be detrimental to the dentinal flow

-Nadine’s 8 steps for dental care…24:05

  1. Saltwater or baking soda solution to brush teeth
    • Sets the tone for the mouth
    • Saliva
    • Introduces alkalinity for the rest of the steps
  2. Tongue scraping
  3. Brushing the gums
  4. Brushing the teeth
  5. Check the gum lines
  6. Flossing
  7. An additional rinse with the saltwater solution
  8. Extra care steps
  • Botanical biotics – essential oils are not only aromatics but true genuine distillates, pure plant medicine, and act as quorum sensing inhibitors (QSI)
    • Quorum sensing is a way for pathogens to communicate and coordinate their group behavior to regulate gene expression
    • Clove has been shown to reduce quorum sensing by up to 70%
    • Essential oils can create anti-infective activity that can coexist with flora, while cleaning up the periodontal pathogens; molecules can bust up the biofilm in a way that antibiotics can’t; (biofilm prevents the respiration cycle of teeth – teeth also breath; reason why it’s not good to use glycerine in toothpaste because it will coat the teeth even after rinsing)


-The effects your teeth have on other organs in your body…48:00

  • Key lines and energy meridians in the body (Eastern medicine)
  • Hasn’t been fully researched
  • Anecdotal evidence in Nadine’s life
  • Thermography images show connection between a root canal and the breast
  • BGF podcast with Dominik Nischwitz on holistic dental care
  • Flossing resulted in minimized inflammation

-Nadine’s thoughts on the efficacy of charcoal toothpaste…52:10

  • BGF Podcasts on Vice article: Part 1 and Part 2
  • Two ways to gauge the abrasivity of a toothpaste:
    • MOH hardness value (1-10 scale)
    • Relative dentin abrasivity (RDA)
  • Activated charcoal is a 2 on the MOH scale; baking soda is 2.5
  • RDA gauges the erosiveness of abrasives in oral care products
  • Most leading brands are much higher on the RDA scale than activated charcoal

-Peptides that can be used for oral care…57:00

  • Dental cleanings release tons of bacteria into the body
    • Cannot donate blood within 48 hrs after a dental cleaning
  • Practices 1-3 months before a dentist appointment:
    • Thymosin α1
    • BPC 157 for receding gums
  • Mouth protocol for injection
  • International Peptide Society

-Three questions you need to ask the next time you visit your dentist…1:01:30

  • Do you do implants with titanium?
    • Titanium is one of the most toxic metals
    • Zirconium
  • Do you do root canals?
  • Do you leave in the periodontal ligament when doing an extraction?
    • Akin to leaving the placenta in when giving birth

-Rapid-fire questions…1:05:30

  • Why ozone and lasers are optimal for cleaning the mouth
  • Why Vitamin C is used for prep and recovery from an oral procedure
  • What X-rays can expose you to less radiation

-The Stop, Seal, Seed concept…1:08:35

  • Stop over-cleaning your skin
  • Seal the skin with oil
  • Seed via quality food, sunshine, probiotics, etc.

-And much more!

Is Your Home’s “Dirty Electricity” Wrecking Your Health?

Sit back and prepare for a wild ride, because it’s finally here: The official, fully updated, EMF-shielding “building biology” analysis of my biohacked home in the forest.

Are your sleep-enhancing devices potentially hurting your brain and sleep patterns due to the dirty electricity they emit during a night of sleep?

Is a “low-EMF” office really low EMF?

Do “healthy” saunas produce EMFs or dirty electricity?

Is it OK to use popular grounding or earthing devices?

Do any of those fancy EMF personal protection devices actually work?

How big a deal are cell phone towers or 5G panels, even if you don’t live directly nearby one?

We’ll tackle these questions and plenty more as you get to listen in (and watch, using the video here on this page) during an entire building biology analysis of the Greenfield home.

My guest on today’s show, Brian Hoyer, first joined me on the show “The Intriguing Science Of Building Biology (Along With A Complete Analysis & Surprising Results From Ben Greenfield’s So-Called “Biohacked Home”)”.

Brian’s dive into health started when he became a father wanting to provide the most optimal growing environment for his family. His desire for them to thrive—and his devotion to discover the truth—drove him to find the most insightful and effective cutting-edge methods for addressing what’s really going on in our bodies and environments. This led Brian to become a functional nutritional therapy practitioner, train with The Klinghardt Academy, and become a certified geobiologist trained by a pioneering naturopathic and environmental medicine clinic in Austria that’s been addressing EMFs and geopathic stress since 1983.

Brian and his wife, Lindsey, built an EMF shielded tiny house in the summer of 2017. Brian travels all over the country doing EMF assessments, speaking at conferences and on podcasts, and helping families install shielding solutions. After testing many homes for EMF around the country Brian founded Shielded Healing in 2017 with the goal of helping modern humanity recreate electromagnetic environments that more closely mimic our historic human habitats.

According to Brian, EMF testing and mitigation has been stuck in the same pattern for 20-30 years. The last 10-15 years professionals all around the world have been recommending the same solutions even as our exposure has increased 500-1000 times or more. The same fabrics, the same meters, the same recommendations, and saying pretty much the same things, despite the drastic increase in exposures and chronic illness.


Here’s the entire video of Brian’s walkthrough of my home:


Here’s what you’ll hear in the podcast:

-The difference between a “building biologist” and an EMF shielding expert…7:00

  • Brian began as a health practitioner
  • A biohacking way to fix:
    • The house
    • The person
    • Earth frequencies from external stimuli (cell towers and the like)
  • Book: Healing is Voltage by Jerry Tennant
  • Book: The Body Electric by Robert Becker
  • Brian’s first podcast with Ben covered the basics: Building biology, WiFi routers, cell towers, smartphones near the head, etc.

-The protocol Brian follows when evaluating a home or office…11:00

  • 6 basic stressors explored and measured:
    • Magnetic fields – Tests on devices with motors running (refrigerators, induction stoves, etc.), unbalanced current in the wires, outside power lines near big substations with transformers. Test using the NFA-1000 Gauss meter. The ESI-24 ($300) could also be used (use code BEN5 to save 5%)
    • Electric fields – Test the body’s current, dirty electricity that’s on the ground using the ESI-24
    • Dirty electricity – Test the lines for thousands of different frequencies that are riding on the 60Hz electrical system; (spikes, surges, etc.)
    • Wireless frequencies – Test using the Spectran V5 and the ESI-24 (wifi routers, cellphones, cell phone towers, etc.)
    • Artificial light – Test flicker and spectrum of the light, match the indoor environment to the outdoor environment
    • Geopathic stress – Naturopathic/homeopathic term for the energy coming out of the earth; scientific term is Telluric current
  • Difference between electric and magnetic fields: Electric fields travel along anything conductive; magnetic can travel through anything
  • Pulsing electric or magnetic fields are the concern; they are not found in nature
  • Pulsing causes the cells to “jostle” in several different directions at once; affects the mitochondria
    • Magnetism affects almost every mineral in some way
    • Electro-hypersensitivity in people with metal overload, mold, mycotoxins, biofilm, poor methylation
  • EMF frequencies are not modulated to be healing frequencies
  • Robert O. Becker research on PEMF, electromagnetism, electric current, etc.
    • How the fields can be used in beneficial ways therapeutically, and have an effect biologically on the tissue
  • Issue between a cellphone and a PEMF device: cellphones are not modulated in a way to be healing frequency or any kind of healing therapy
  • Faraday bags available on Amazon
  • Defender Shield smartphone case (use code BEN20 to save 20%)
  • Open Signal app tests the connection speed of mobile phone and wifi signals
  • iPhone to ethernet cables

-Living Room and Kitchen…31:45

  • Starting with the magnetic field, wiring issues can be discovered right away
    • Living room measured 0.35mG (daytime – 0.5mG or lower)
    • Bedroom 0.3mG or lower
  • Brian’s tests – making the invisible visible, and the inaudible audible
  • Light Rhythms Concerto EMF protection device
  • Testing the body’s micro-voltage for radiofrequency radiation
    • Acceptable measurement:
      • Under 1000μV in daytime areas (it was over 10,000μV with the cell phone turned on)
      • Under 100μV in nighttime areas
    • 2 lav mics and a cell phone maxed out the measuring device
  • Devices that claim to block or cancel EMF often do not offer much protection (read the fine print)
  • Book: The Biology of Belief by Bruce Lipton
    • Double-blind placebo effect
    • Engaging in behavior you know is unhealthy can be more harmful than blissful ignorance (psychological stress)
  • Set up a protocol, act on it, then stop stressing out about it; you can’t fix everything at once
  • BGF podcast with Joe Mercola on EMFs
    • Carb mitigation
    • Ketone bodies having protective effects on some of the inflammatory pathways
    • High magnesium (use code GREENFIELD10 to save $10)/mineral (use code GREENFIELD10 to save 10%) intake has a positive effect on some of the deleterious effects on calcium channel influx
    • Diet rich in sirtuins
    • Supplementing with NAD protecting against ionizing radiation damage
  • Real-time radio frequency spectrum analyzer
  • FM radio frequencies resonate with human body more than other frequencies
  • Book: The Invisible Rainbow by Arthur Firstenberg
    • Correlation between EMF exposure to diseases
    • “Perfect storm for chronic illness”
  • The body can act as an antenna for cell phones, TV’s, etc.
  • EMF-blocking underwear may conduct EMF if in a high-density EMF area (use code BEN to save 20%)
    • Get an EMF meter, know what’s going on in the environment (use code BEN5 to save 5%)
  • Book: Electromagnetic Field Measurements in the Near Field by Hubert Trzaska
  • Wired keyboards, trackpads, etc.
  • Make sure the computer is grounded (third prong)
  • Grounded charging cable and charger
  • Use a wired mouse rather than wireless
  • Himalayan salt lamp


-Boys’ Bedrooms…1:09:50


-Master bedroom…1:51:45

  • Things running during the night to test:
  • Measurements with all devices running:
    • Electric field at 1200mV
    • Slightly elevated magnetic field but not necessarily a concern
    • Some voltage coming from the diffuser; a battery-powered diffuser would be way better
    • BluShield actually producing more EMF than it is blocking
    • chiliPAD controller should not be under the bed
    • Belkin grounded power strips are good
    • Bluetooth of the Molekule air filter should be disabled (use code BEN to save 10%)
    • To accurately test, the Dreem should be worn while inside Dr. Mercola’s Silvershield EMF shielding tent; as it is, the Dreem is emitting flicker (100Hz)
    • Studies show that flickering light can be beneficial with PBM at specific frequencies
  • A grounding mat under the bed can be problematic if the rest of the room is not properly protected

-Smart Meter and Solar Panels…2:13:30

  • Smart meters operate around 900 MHz; can go as high as 2.4 GHz
    • Magnetic field reading of 20~30mG
  • Shielded Healing power conditioner
  • Power Perfect dirty electricity filter near the solar storage battery
    • Switched on: less than 40mV, switched off: 190mV

-Testing Wearables In the Faraday Tent…2:21:30


-Biohacking Room…2:31:15

  • PEMF Chair measurements:
    • 0.4mV and 29μA

DAWSON-MALLIN-Landscape-1.jpg

Why Your DNA Is Worthless (& What You Need To Focus On Instead).

Your DNA alone is worthless.

So claim my guests on today’s show, Dr. Matt Dawson and Dr. Mike Mallin of Wild Health, with locations in Versailles, KY and Bend, OR. I first interviewed these guys in the episode “How To Use Precision Medicine To Enhance Athletic Performance, Defy Aging, Balance Hormones, Fix The Heart & Much More.” and now they’re back to talk all things DNA and genetics.

Dr. Matt Dawson is a precision medicine physician in Lexington, KY, co-host of the Wild Health Podcast, and has been obsessed with performance optimization as long as he can remember. He received scholarships to play two sports in college even with “minimal talent” because of his voracious reading and implementation of any fitness or nutritional techniques that would give him an edge. Dr. Dawson continued that obsession in medical school, and as a physician, he has won national awards for education, innovation, and leadership. He has lectured in over 20 countries and trained thousands of other physicians through live lectures, online education, two textbooks, and an educational app.

Dr. Dawson combines his training in genomics and functional medicine to give personalized, precise medical guidance. His obsession with performance optimization has morphed from, initially athletic, to now mental performance and longevity. Whether it’s a professional athlete or a grandparent optimizing their mental clarity and mobility to keep up with their grandkids, Dr. Dawson is passionate about helping everyone perform at their absolute peak.

Dr. Mike Mallin is a physician in Bend, OR who is obsessed with health performance and precision medicine and is co-founder of the Wild Health Podcast. He completed medical school in South Carolina and trained in Emergency Medicine in Salt Lake City, UT where he competed in several ultramarathons and found his love for the mountains and performance.

Mike currently practices in Bend, OR and Lexington, KY in his precision medicine clinics. He is also co-founder of the Ultrasound Podcast, an educational podcast that has taught thousands of physicians all over the world how to use ultrasound.

As compiled and read by Brock, the Ben Greenfield Fitness Podcast “sidekick”.

Audio Question from Tony:
Recently broke a bone in his foot and is looking for help from the nutritional side and supplement side. Also looking for advice on how to stay fit while on crutches for the next 8 weeks.

~ In his response to Troy, Ben mentions Capraflex.

Audio Question from Chuck:
Has been dealing with an eating disorder for years. Is currently checked in to an in-patient facility and eating all meals there. Exercise is frowned on until more weight is restored. Feels like all the weight he is putting on is going straight to his stomach. Wants to distribute the weight more evenly without sabotaging any success he is having in the program.

Audio Question from Ben:
Post workout nausea and/or lightheadedness. He trains fasted, usually around 11 or noon. Drinks a shake in the locker room right after lifting, squatting, push/pull etc… drinks a small coconut water and whey protein shake. 10 or 15 minutes after the shake he gets dizzy and nauseous. He doesn’t have this issue if he skips the shake.

Audio Question from Ben:
He is driving from California to New York and would like to stay fit during the trip. Do you think he could anchor the Most Fit Suspension Trainer on the car door the same way you do on a home or hotel door?

~ In his response to Ben, Ben mentions The MostFit Suspension Strap.

Bill asks:
I am a 60 year old male triathlete and using Ben’s advanced 1/2 Ironman training plan. What adjustments in training, recovery and nutrition would you advise in general for older athletes? I find I’m taking an extra day off (usually an easy recovery training day) while working full time with family responsibilities.

~ In his response, Ben mentions the liquid multivitamin.

Bill asks:
About eight months ago (before I became a listener) I purchased Ellington Darden’s “New High Intensity Training,” As a result of applying this approach, I have become stronger, at 48-years-old, than at any other time in my life (including while playing college football). It’s been great. However, I have two concerns. First, I am still going up… with no particular reason to keep getting stronger. I’m a creative director, not an offensive tackle. Should I just pick a plateau and choose to stay there forever? Or what? Also, my lifts are starting to be limited by (or possibly damage) non-target areas – for example, I could go higher on dumbbell flies as far as my chest is concerned, but my wrists aren’t strong enough. And I can keeping squatting higher weights, but my hips are hurting. Seems like my body’s trying to self-limit, maybe? I am surprised by how strong I have become with no ceiling in sight… is there a ceiling? Any thoughts, on HIT training in general and this situation in particular?

Lauri says:
My partner just completed abdominal radiation therapy for cancer. Needless to say, this pretty much trashed her digestive system. I have been looking into the GAPS diet as a potential method to help her along the healing path. However, when I’ve done a search through PubMed, I have not been able to find any peer reviewed articles on this diet. Are you familiar with any that are out there? I may just not have the correct search parameters.

~ In his response, Ben talks about the book: Fourfold Path To Healing.

Andrew asks:
I seem to be producing very high levels of ammonia in my sweat. In fact, if I was working out in a public gym I’m sure people would think I’d wet myself. This seems to be irrespective of whether it’s a low intensity long workout or high intensity intervals. I consider my diet reasonably balanced though I am having trouble lowering my body fat levels despite a slow but steady weight loss. I take no supplements though I have just purchased a protein powder.

Gerry says:
I recently watched a Dr. Oz episode that mentioned chlorogenic acid in the form of pure green coffee bean extract. The info presented stated that this acid slows the release of glucose into the bloodstream and burns glucose and fat in the liver. I’m trying to drop weight, but I’m a very active triathlete who works out 6 days per week. Would this supplement be beneficial to help me reach my weight loss goals? Or would it be detrimental to my training and nutrition by decreasing the amount of glucose available to my body during workouts?

7 Crazy Biohacks You’ve Probably Never Heard Of!

Strap yourselves in for a wild biohacking ride full of new biohacks—some of which I hadn’t even heard of.

My guest on today’s podcast is named Marc. That’s it. That’s the only information I’ll release about his identity.

He started his career in investment banking and financing renewable energies and now arranges financing for various government projects—from hydro dams, to farms, to airports—and is now heavily immersed in the fields of biohacking and researching emerging health-enhancing technologies, primarily inspired by managing an incurable genetic defect in his kidneys.

In this podcast, we delve into a host of new biohacking technologies you’ve probably never heard of, from NAD boosters, to stem cell enhancing protocols, to longevity and anti-aging molecules, and much more!

During this discussion, you’ll discover:

-How Marc got interested in these biohacks…8:03

  • Doing due diligence for banking investments revealed a lot of flaws in technologies such as solar and wind power
  • Became a trusted voice among his partners and investors due to his findings

-How to change the gravitational pull inside your cells to speed up the healing process…11:38

  • Marc was diagnosed w/ polycystic kidney disease (PKD)
    • Defective on PK-1 protein; cysts develop on the kidney
    • Standard medicine considers it incurable
  • Began ketogenic diet (low glucose slows the growth of the cysts)
  • Increase in klotho protein halts the disease
    • Changes the gravitational pull inside the cells, thus changing the time perspective in which they can heal (40 hrs of healing w/in a 24 hr time frame)
  • Immortalis probiotic
    • Very expensive: ~$2500/month
    • Extremely detail-oriented protocol
    • Use olive oil or yogurt as a precursor approx. 3-4 days before ingesting
  • How the klotho protein is activated and suppressed
    • Psychological stress, inflammation, oxidative stress and depression mitigate its production
    • Angiotensin decreases klotho
    • Vitamin D, insulin, exercise (resistance training), cordyceps, ginseng extract, activated charcoal increase klotho
    • Vitamin D transport system activates immune system
    • Nagalase enzyme suppresses the immune system by suppressing immune cells
    • GcMAF mitigates damage done by nagalase

-Ways to protect from harmful 5G technology…32:15


-The skinny on V-cells…44:30

  • V-cells are totipotent cells
  • Different types of cells:
    • Totipotent cells can become any type of cell (the crème de la crème of stem cells)
    • Pluripotent can be a variety of different cells
    • Multipotent cells, less variety
    • Singular potent – only one type of cell
  • Embryonic-like stem cells
    • “Non-activated”—dormant, body doesn’t know what to do with them
  • Device in the works to increase bioavailability of V-cells
    • High-frequency pulse laser
    • Very small margin of error for it to be efficacious
  • BGF podcasts mentioned:
  • Increased exercise and caloric restriction will mobilize small v-cells

-A mostly unknown way to boost NAD levels…58:02

  • Change the environment so that cells produce NAD sans precursors (such as nicotinamide riboside, NR)
  • NAD increase of 242%
  • NAD+ is used by the body, then converted into NR
    • This becomes downregulated w/ age
  • Nuchido for boosting NAD

-A natural way to upregulate endothelial stem cells…1:03:55

-Interesting biohacks related to water…1:07:42

-A device that increases the mineral density of plants…1:18:03

  • Ark Crystals
  • Lab-grown
  • Placed close to organism w/ water, allows water to come back to its original structure
  • Pesticides are not necessary
  • Water becomes 100% coherent
  • Water and Wellness deuterium-depleted water

-And much more…

  • What your doctors aren’t telling you about your adult acne (4:30)
  • The nightmarish symptoms of Rocky Mountain Fever (5:17)
  • Gina’s grocery bag tip for cutting out lectins “cold turkey” (12:40)
  • The truth about Ezekiel Bread (it’s not all it’s cracked up to be) (13:20)
  • The “dangerous” meal Gina was eating every day (you might be eating it too!) (14:20)
  • The instant benefits of going lectin free. (17:00)
  • Why the idea of “everything in moderation” needs to die (19:50)
  • What your fingers and toes say about your gut health (24:00)
  • An easy starter meal for lectin free “newbies” (30:00)
  • Gina’s no-nonsense secret for being successful on The Plant Paradox diet (34:20)

Natural Birth Control Alternatives & The Dangers Of The Pill

My guest on today’s show, Dr. Jolene Brighten, is a functional medicine naturopathic doctor and the founder of Rubus Health, a women’s medicine clinic that specializes in women’s hormones. She is recognized as a leading expert in post-birth control syndrome and the long-term side effects associated with hormonal contraceptives. Dr. Brighten is the best-selling author, speaker, and regular contributor to several online publications including MindBodyGreen. She is a medical advisor for one of the first data-driven apps to offer women personalized birth control recommendations.

You might be familiar with her also as the author of Beyond the Pill: A 30-Day Program to Balance Your Hormones, Reclaim Your Body, and Reverse the Dangerous Side Effects of the Birth Control Pill.

Out of the 100 million women (almost 11 million in the United States alone) who are on the pill, roughly 60 percent take it for non-contraceptive reasons like painful periods, endometriosis, PCOS, and acne. While the birth control pill is widely prescribed as a quick-fix solution to a variety of women’s health conditions, taking it can also result in other more serious and dangerous health consequences. Did you know that women on the pill are more likely to be prescribed an antidepressant? That they are at significantly increased risk for autoimmune disease, heart attack, thyroid and adrenal disorders, and even breast and cervical cancer? That the pill can even cause vaginal dryness, unexplained hair loss, flagging drive, extreme fatigue, and chronic infection. As if women didn’t have enough to worry about, that little pill we’re taking to manage our symptoms is only making things worse.

Dr. Brighten specializes in treating women’s hormone imbalances caused by the pill and shares her proven 30-day program designed to reverse the myriad of symptoms women experience every day—whether you choose to stay on the pill or not.

Featuring simple diet and lifestyle interventions, this podcast will be a crucial step to reversing the risky side effects of the pill, finally finding hormonal health, and getting your badass self back.

During this discussion, you’ll discover:

-An overview of how the pill works…9:38

  • Dr. Brighten is a former user of the pill; didn’t understand the ramifications until studying in natural medicine
  • It works at your brain level
    • How do the ovaries know when to ovulate?
    • The pill distorts FSH/LH levels, thus affecting ovulation, menstrual cycles, etc.
    • Causes mood alterations and even difficulty getting pregnant once off the pill
  • What normal FSH/LH levels should be sans the pill
    • Day 1 of the period begins the “flow” of maturing eggs
    • FSH and estrogen rise
    • Once ovulation occurs, the corpus luteum secretes progesterone
  • Every form of birth control produces progestin, not progesterone
    • Weight gain is common
    • Water retention due to lack of progesterone
    • Moodiness is common
  • Key point: A woman stops ovulating because the pill is affecting her body at the brain level

-Dr. Brighten’s thoughts on supplementing w/ progesterone…16:03

  • There’s a time and place for it, but first ask “why” you need it
  • Can help w/ anxiety, sleep quality,
  • Women need progesterone to strengthen the myelin sheath in the brain; also w/ neuroplasticity
  • Important for bone health and the immune system
  • Book: Adrenaline Dominance
  • Book: The Warrior Diet
  • Some men can benefit from progesterone supplements
  • A safe environment is vital for progesterone levels
    • Stressful environments affect natural progesterone levels
    • The body will produce cortisol rather than reproductive hormones

-Why women are not equitably represented in the scientific community…23:43

  • Lean females should use caution while participating in intermittent fasting
  • Laws forbidding women from participating in studies have inhibited accurate data
  • Basic economics: it’s cheaper and easier to study males, be it humans or animals


-Real-time consequences of being on the pill…33:30

  • It affects which partner a woman is attracted to
    • Makes a woman less attractive to ideal partners
    • A woman may not be attracted to their partner when they come off the pill

-Effects of the pill on athletic performance…45:20

-How to go about getting off the pill…57:15

  • “All or nothing situation”; don’t wean yourself off
    • The brain is confused w/ reduced amounts of the pill if taking smaller quantities
  • Women use the pill for symptom management, vs. birth control
    • The symptoms will return if you don’t adjust your lifestyle
    • Prep the body for 90 days before going off the pill
  • Protocol  for Post Birth Control Syndrome, like addressing leaky gut issues, like slippery elm bark, marshmallow, aloe vera extract, colostrum, CoQ10
  • Organ meats are good (nature’s multivitamin)
  • Focus on every system in the body
  • Women have been able to save their own lives, advocating for themselves w/ doctors, in the ER, etc. (medical gender bias)
