B.rad Rebroadcast: Ben Greenfield - Cutting Edge Peak Performance and Longevity

The B.rad Podcast

It’s time for another rebroadcast episode as we head back into the archives for this early episode with the amazing Ben Greenfield. Ben is a human information machine, biohacking wiz extraordinaire and just an extremely healthy, fit guy going on all kinds of channels with his expanded consciousness and his endless gratitude, and all his various interests, which you will hear about in this show: from spirituality to his great website and podcast to the books he has written (Boundless and Beyond Training), which are virtually encyclopedias with the kind of content you will not find in any other healthy living book, I truly don’t know how he does so much while producing so much content! But Ben really walks his walk; he lives and breathes what he talks about every day, so he is a great resource to listen to, as he has this unique ability to blend a scientific mindset with being a deep thinker and researcher (just read his blog on his website to see what an incredible writer he is). While Ben may not be for everyone because he is pretty hard-core, I think it’s important to reflect on the fact that most of us are very used to living a life of ease and convenience, and Ben challenges this common desire most people have to continue doing that by being the physical embodiment of this alternative way of living. In this episode, you will hear Ben share how he is able to read one book a day (as well as tons of great quotes from various books that are peppered throughout the episode), what he considers as important to our lifespan as sunshine and water, how he developed such a robust attitude towards productivity, as well as the one thing he does not consume that helps free up a lot of his time and energy. Enjoy this episode and the rare treat of hearing from a human existing on the absolute edge of peak performance, Ben Greenfield! TIMESTAMPS: Ben Greenfield details his unbelievably active life. [09:01] After a bike accident, Ben took his harvested stem cells and expedited his recovery. [17:33] Ketosis element was included in the healing regimen that helped Ben as well. [19:13] Diet, fasting, being in ketosis has much to do with balancing your life of intense workouts and busy lifestyle. [22:34] The family gathering for the evening meal is incredibly important.  [26:15] Ben does not consume modern culture and uses his time toward health and fitness and family time. Micro workouts are a big part of his routine. [30:23] Is there a way to accelerate recovery after exercise? [40:41] Stem cell injections gave Ben a full body makeover. Ben would love to live to 170 years if it gave him time to fulfill his purpose in life. [45:41] Eating plants, controlling your blood sugar, not smoking, spending time with your friends and your family, moving around during the day and knowing what your purpose in life Is, is the road to longevity.  [51:58] What are some basic items an enthusiast could invest in? Hydrogen-rich water, heat therapy are examples. [53:33] Ben’s daily routine involves first thing in the morning 10 to 15 minutes of mobility work and breath work. Every day he writes down what he is grateful for and also naps. [01:03:14] The relationship with the children and the evening meal fills the late afternoon hours. [01:06:42] How did Ben’s path to medicine change? Now he’s created a power bar and other supplements.

Ben Greenfield: Should You STOP Using Plant Medicines? Wisdom on Microdosing, The Muscle of Faith + How to Grow Your Spiritual Strength

Wellness + Wisdom with Josh Trent

God doesn't want you to use drugs to interact with the spiritual world. The reason for that is it's very easy to put your faith in being able to have God or the gods at your beck and call, being able to divine, being able to experience God but not ever truly know God, being able to experience a deep spiritual awakening but never actually go through the blood, sweat, tears, and the hard work that develops true spiritual enlightenment. - Ben Greenfield Are You Stressed Out Lately?

Join The Facebook Group Wellness + Wisdom Episode 462 Health Consultant, Speaker, and New York Times bestselling author of 17 books, Ben Greenfield, joins Josh Trent on the Wellness + Wisdom Podcast to share why he's no longer using plant medicines + the moral obligation he feels to share it with the world, to explore the special circumstances for using plant medicine and to explain why + how you should go about plant medicine with caution and with the right ceremonial set up, environment, and shaman. For any human being on a spiritual or faith path, should you stop using plant medicines? By the end of this episode, you will have a deep intelligence around the clarification of what exactly plant medicines are for human beings and how they connect us to spiritual dimensions + higher consciousness. Shop the BEST Organic Snacks at PaleoValley Save 15% with the code 'JOSH' PaleoValley's 100% Grass-Fed Beef Sticks Paleovalley 100% Grass Fed Beef Sticks are the only beef sticks in the USA made from 100% grass fed/grass finished beef and organic spices that are naturally fermented. Their 100% Grass Fed Beef Sticks are unlike anything else on the market. In fact, they were recently voted in Paleo Magazine as one of the top snacks of the year. The reason is that they are committed to making the highest quality, clean products that are free from problematic ingredients. Their beef comes from 100% grass fed cows raised entirely on natural grass pastures by family farmers right here in the USA. As a result they are healthy and happy. PaleoValley's Pasture-Raised Turkey Sticks Paleovalley Pasture-Raised Turkey Sticks were created to make healthy snacking easier. Their turkey sticks are made from turkeys who are allowed to live as nature intended... on organic grass pastures with plenty of sunshine, fresh air and room to exercise. The result of raising turkeys in such a natural way is a much healthier, clean protein with higher levels of vitamins, minerals, and omega-3s. Unfortunately, virtually all turkey in the USA is conventionally raised with a small portion being "free range" – a virtually meaningless term that simply means the turkeys were allowed access to the outdoors. However, most "free range" turkeys only have access to an outdoor dirt field with no pasture in sight. Their truly pasture-raised turkeys are given full access to outdoor, pesticide-free pasture with plenty of grass and insects for them to nibble on.

Why the movie, Soul, means so much to both Ben and Josh. C.S. Lewis Ben's spark to live a simple yet extraordinary life and what that looks like for him.

How To Find Your Purpose In Life. - Ben Greenfield Fitness Why you should never underestimate your special skills and what you're able to do in this world. How to come familiar with what you're good at and then without shame take that and run with it, not in the spirit of monetizing it, but with love. [1:13:30] How Prayers Can be Answered + Sometimes Are Not Why your heart first has to be in the right place and with pure intention when you commune with God about your wishes and desires. Ben's prayers for years to God to help heal his gut issues and how that health experience led him to actually helping so many people with their own healing process. How his health issues keep him humble knowing that his body is not perfect. Why prayers, like the ones he made for his gut health, are sometimes not answered directly because God knows that another purpose needs to be served,  you need something better or you need to be praying for something different. The fact that some people pray but they don't truly believe and that hinders the process. How God makes plans for us in ways that we cannot fathom and things will play out in a process that we never expected. Why we need to thank God now for the very thing that we desire compared to coming from a place of scarcity. How Ben defines wellness and living life well. Why freedom is also being vulnerable and how Ben has navigated his own shadow self and ego. 405 Tim Corcoran | Vision Quest: How To Find Your Place In The Ecology of Life, Purpose Mountain & Spiritual Courage Power Quotes From The Show Sustainable Spiritual Growth "By the nature of me knowing and acknowledging that I'm not good, that I can't do it all on my own, that I need God's help, it's incredibly humbling. To be able to be on my knees each morning and say to God, 'I give everyone and everything to you. I can't do this on my own. I can't be good on my own nor be the father and husband I want to be on my own. Although this might sound like the total polar opposite of a positive affirmation, I'm a fallen creature and I would commit great evil if I were left all alone to myself; I know it...' ...However, there is this great confidence that despite all of that, I am loved unconditionally and have been offered a rescue line that is free so that all I have to do is rely upon the grace of God and his love to be able to help me be as good as I can be. I think knowing that gives great hope because then you know that you don't have to do it all on your own. You can rely upon a higher power to be the person that you want to be in this life." - Ben Greenfield Loving the World Through Your Purpose "You were made for a reason and you just have to unlock it. You have a planned divine purpose and it's so easy to experience the "grass is always greener" syndrome especially in a world with social media. It's so simple to look at other people living their purpose; they're a doctor or an architect or a gardener and then you find yourself comparing your life to theirs but never underestimate your unique skill set and the things that come easy to you because that's how you can love the world the most. You just have to intimately become familiar with what it is that you're good at and then unashamedly run with it in the spirit of not monetizing it but loving with it. Find your purpose and know that you never have to be ashamed of that purpose." - Ben Greenfield The Appropriate Path to God "In my own plant medicine experiences, they have only ever been about light, love, and spiritual enlightenment. Many former atheists that I have spoken to that have participated in plant medicine have been able to come and know God through ceremony. Plant medicines can be a path to God but it is not THE path; it is not the appropriate path to God. The reason for that is you can go in protected with positive energy plus the right environment and know that you can trust the shaman but it's really just playing with fire... ...That's why God has warned us about pharmakeia in the bible because he knew how attractive it was and how much of a train wreck it would cause in the end or how much of a displaced trust it would cause for people to put their faith and reliance upon how they could become spiritually enlightened in anything other than the free act of just leaving their burden at the foot of the cross, thanking Jesus, and living in grace." - Ben Greenfield Links From Today's Show  Listen to: Ben Greenfield Life Podcasts Why I Am No Longer Going to Be Using Plant Medicines: Part 1 - The Big Problem With “Plant Medicines” Part 2 - Why I Am No Longer Going to Be Using Plant Medicines: The Big Problem With “Plant Medicines” CHEK Institute How To Eat, Move, & Be Healthy by Paul Chek Paul Chek on Wellness + Wisdom Podcast RUNGA  Cover Story | Power Trip by New York Magazine Onnit 123 Aubrey Marcus – Own The Day 196.

Ep #116 Customise your life and live purposefully/Ben Greenfield

The Roger Snipes Show

If you don't know the name Ben Greenfield then you're probably new to the space of biohacking or just new to health and wellness in general. Ben is a true practitioner of fitness. He walks the talk in all aspects. During my personal journey, it has always been a quest to be strong and healthy. Over time as you get older and wiser you soon realise there is more to life than aesthetics. It reminds me of a book called The Second Mountain by David Brooks. You can feel "happy" but it's not until you feel "joy" that you become a more robust human. Happiness depends on your external circumstances but joy comes from within.Ben follows a list of practices to keep in peak physical fitness mentally, physically and spiritually. Daily rituals set him apart from your average human and this podcast teaches us what we can do to set us apart from the average human too.Make sure you check out his socials on:Facebook: @BGFitnessTwitter: @BenGreenfieldInstagram: @BenGreenfieldFitnessSnapchat: BGFitnessThis podcast was sponsored by: Athletic Greens - AG1- A greens drink with over 75 vitamins and minerals - athleticgreens.com/snipesGet a year's supply of D3/K2 with your purchaseNootopia - Nootopia.com/snipes - Use code: SNIPES10 for 10% off - One of the best-customised nootropic stacks for brain health and agility you will come across.
