    Play Episode Listen Later Apr 23, 2022 69:49 I first met Doug Wolkon when I was visiting Kauai and was convinced by big-wave surfer Laird Hamilton to go visit a favorite local farm of his called Kauai Farmacy. I was immediately blown away by the vast array of over 80 varieties of organic healing plants and food orchards… …along with a team of incredibly knowledgeable herbalists and gardeners; a closed-loop vermiculture feeding system (worm compost farm), honeybees, butterflies, and other pollinators; wildfowl; environmentally-compatible farming (water-catchments, permaculture guilds, and more); and medicine-making systems (solar-dehydrators, low-temperature herb-curing, herbal teas, tinctures, hydrosols, salves, honey, capsules, and more). Everything is done by hand at the Farmacy, including brewing homemade fertilizers from the plants they grow. They seed, propagate, plant, hand-harvest, artisanally-craft, and package all the herbal products they grow right on the farm. The fresh and pure nature of the herbs ensures high quality, potent, consistent, and effective plant medicine straight from the source. Since that visit two years ago, if you've been following me on Instagram and elsewhere, you've seen me using ample amounts of Kauai Farmacy powders and tinctures in my recipes, along with products such as their salves and hydrosols for joint and skin health. Rooted in the wisdom of Hawaiian La'au lapa'au, Ayurveda, Chinese medicine, and the tribal indigenous, the potent herbal plant medicines harvested from the rich, volcanic soil of Kauai just seem to have a very unique and special energy. After graduating from the University of Michigan, Doug pursued a ten-year career in private equity finance in Connecticut. Before moving his family to Hawaii in 2007, Doug published The New Game, an economic theory and strategy for sustainable communities. Doug co-founded Kauai Farmacy in 2010 with his wife Genna, and they currently live there with their three kids. The Farmacy is a seed-to-cup tropical herbal oasis spanning four acres and consisting of what may be the most diverse collection of plant medicine in the western hemisphere. After spending the last 10 years experiencing the power of fresh plant medicine for both himself and his family on a daily basis, Doug thrives on a high-fat, ketogenic, 100% raw-food diet. Doug believes Kauai Farmacy's vertically-integrated herbal medicine model is a budding example of what needs to be the future of a more sustainable, preventative-care-focused healthcare industry.

    Seven Surprising Reasons Your Sleep Surface & Sleep Environment May Not Be As Optimized As You Think, With Essentia Mattress CEO Jack Dell'Accio.

    Play Episode Listen Later Apr 16, 2022 68:12 My guest on this podcast, Jack Dell'Accio, is the Founder and CEO of Essentia, which is the world's only naturalmemory foam mattress. Jack has dedicated the last 16 years to studying mattresses and sleep health. His journey began after experiencing a family member's battle with cancer. After being made aware of the toxins in everyday items, the Dell'Accio family struggled to find a mattress that offered pressure relief and posture support without introducing toxins to the bedroom. He realized at that point how important this was not only for someone battling disease but also for healthy people. Knowing that you spend a third of your life sleeping on what can be the most toxic item in your home is why Jack stepped in to develop Essentia's patented natural memory foam which is made using only the highest quality natural and organic ingredients to ensure that you are not being exposed to the toxic chemicals. Over those years, Jack discovered a way to create a mattress that was toxin-free and healthy so that others wouldn't have to suffer from health issues like his relative did. His determination finally led him to create, patent and invent a mattress that is handmade in Canada with the world's only all-natural memory foam, composed of natural latex, plant extracts, essential oils and water. In other words, Jack figured out how to manufacture the greenest, healthiest and most comfortable night's sleep you'll ever have. And the ingredients used in this no-spring, no-wool mattress are unlike any you've ever seen, including: Hevea Milk – the milky white “sap” of the rubber tree, collected much like maple tree sap. This milk is processed to make the Essentia natural memory foam, which is known for its durability, support qualities and purity… Organic Essential Oils – a natural and healthy alternative to man-made oils or petroleum commonly used in other mattresses. Grapefruit seed, cone flower essence and jasmine essence all help achieve proper consistency in the Essentia natural memory foam while providing soothing and rejuvenating properties to your body… Natural Plant Extracts – as a substitution to harsh toxic chemicals used in conventional memory foam, plant extracts such as hydrolyzed corn help Essentia achieve the proper consistency for their natural memory foam… Certified Organic Cotton – Every Essentia mattress is wrapped in 100% GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified unbleached organic cotton, grown without any chemicals, synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. Rather than using toxic glue, they use a non-toxic adhesive made from liquid latex and acrylic resin to hold their natural memory foam layers together. Of course, Essentia also has 5 pound density memory foam throughout, an extremely low mmHG (this is very important for your joint biomechanics as you sleep) and a 20-year warranty on the most durable memory foam on the face of the planet. So basically, you not just get the best sleep ever on an Essentia mattress, but you could probably even eat an Essentia mattress. These mattresses are also held to the strictest of strict standards. As a matter of fact, here's an extensive list of all the rigorous tests and certifications the Essentia mattresses go through. The end result is a completely guilt-free, hypo-allergenic, non-toxic sleeping experience unlike any you'll ever experience. You'll roll out of bed feeling ready to conquer the world, with zero pressure points or tossing and turning during the night. Over the last few years Jack has been working with the Delos Wellness and data from their Well Living Lab / Mayo Clinic collaboration. They consider Essentia the best suited mattress for human sustainability as we score highest on all sleep environment pillars. Poor sleep environment often is the source of stimulants that increase activity of the CNS and prevent longer deep sleep cycles. They go into a broader range in looking into how these effect human behavior, happiness, and productivity. During our discussion, you'll discover: -How Jack got interested in sleep and mattresses... -How Essentia tackles the allergens issue... -How Essentia differs from most memory foams on the market... -The 7 sleep environment stimulants that keep you awake at night... -How the Essentia mattress helps with EMF... -Gold standard mattress setup... -Hybrid mattresses to help out with the wallet... -And much more...

    How Much Exercise Is Too Much, Why Calorie Restriction May Be A Bad Thing, The Downsides of Hormesis & Other Shocking Health Myth Debunked With Jay Feldman and Mike Fave.

    Play Episode Listen Later Apr 9, 2022 77:51 Are you exercising too much? Is hormesis a bad thing? How much exercise is too much? Should we be avoiding things like carb restriction, saunas and cold? Is caloric restriction really not necessary for lifespan? My first guest on this podcast - Jay Feldman - is a health coach, independent health researcher, and the host of The Energy Balance Podcast, and has strong opinions on all the questions above, and many others. He has degrees in neuroscience and exercise physiology from the University of Miami and decided to forgo medical school after realizing that the conventional medical approach was not the solution to the health problems that so many of us face. After working through various conventional and alternative health paradigms and trialing countless diets (including everything from vegetarian to keto), Jay came across the idea that cellular energy is the foundation of our health. He now uses a bioenergetic approach to help men and women around the world maximize their cellular energy and achieve freedom from low-energy symptoms like chronic hunger & cravings, fatigue, brain fog, poor sleep, gut issues, and weight gain. Jay is joined here by Mike Fave, an independent researcher, and a Registered Nurse. Traditionally educated in western medicine as an RN, his true passion is independent research. He spent close to a decade with his head inside a Pubmed article or a physiology textbook, and his heart in some type of nutrition or supplement experiment. In the beginning of his journey, Mike damaged his health getting caught up in dietary dogma and nutrition ideology. He went the western medical route to try to fix the damage and wound up getting talked into a surgery he didn't need. It's taken him years to recover, but he doesn't regret it because he learned significantly from his mistakes. He saw all sides of the spectrum from being a patient to being a practitioner to being a part of the alternative health scene. He takes his lessons, experiences, and knowledge to help others not only avoid the mistakes he made, but help them rebuild their health without dogma, ideology, or authoritarianism. During our discussion, you'll discover: -The history of the bioenergetic model... -How Jay and Mike reconcile the dichotomy between their view and the traditional view of a hormetic approach to health... -Why the traditional hormetic model is incorrect... -What causes energy access that leads to chronic disease… -What Jay and Mike's model looks like in the real world... -Clarity on what Jay and Mike's model does NOT mean... -Better ways to get the benefits of hormesis without the stress of hormesis... -And much more...

These questions and more were addressed in the recent Raising Free Range Kids conference, at which Yours Truly was invited to give a presentation on parenting. To be quite honest, I don't feel at all qualified to speak with authority on the topic of parenting as I've yet to finish the job of raising my two boys. I'd just as soon someone who has raised children into adulthood be a speaker at such an event, at which you'd find me on the front row taking copious notes. But in spite of my objections, conference organizer Robin Shirley insisted she interview me, my wife Jessa and my two boys River and Terran via Zoom about the lifestyle, rituals and experiences of life in the Greenfield home, and that interview is what you'll hear on today's episode. And you'll forgive the cow tongue meat occasionally stuck in my teeth... We did the call while we were having dinner! Meet Robin Shirley Robin Shirley is the Founding President of Take Back Your Health Int'l, a company that hosts health conferences and retreats across the U.S. She speaks, consults and writes about The Take Back Your Health Lifestyle and how to reduce the symptoms of chronic illness, especially in children.

She has helped thousands of people overcome the symptoms of Chronic Lyme Disease, Autoimmune Disease and Depression through her energy healing sessions, intuitive readings, and nutrition, detoxification and healing protocols. Robin grew up with chronic pain, headaches, rashes, depression, digestive discomfort and out-of-control systemic inflammation, and was diagnosed with Systemic Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis at 11 years old. She tried everything to heal naturally. Food overhauls helped a little, supplements helped a little, but nothing truly took the pain away. At 23 years old, Robin was on track to file for disability and give up on her dream to run her own hospitality company. Robin has personally experienced the power of a natural approach to reducing pain and inflammation. Fast forward and Robin is now 32 years old, a mother of two beautiful babies, fiancé to the love of her life and running the business of her dreams. She  is in the process of writing her first book and launching online healing programs for chronically ill patients to get healthy from home.

    The Most Advanced Anti-Aging & Longevity Hack That Exists: The Full Body Stem Cell Makeover With Dr. Harry Adelson & Dr. Amy Killen.

    Play Episode Listen Later Apr 2, 2022 44:41 I recently underwent the full body stem cell makeover protocol with Dr. Harry Adelson and Dr. Amy Killen, who you'll be introduced to in just a moment. With that being said, I wanted to break down the details about the procedure and my experience with it for those of you who may be interested in a stem cell makeover, or are just plain old fascinated by it. I did an Instagram Live last week where a lot of you may have seen me in one of those fancy hospital gowns, hooked up to a dialysis machine where they were pumping out tons of my blood out of one arm and then re-introducing it back into my body via the other arm. By the process of hyperoxygenation, the blood coming out of my body is being bombarded with ultraviolet light, causing the blood to turn from dark red to light red through the filtering process, and that light red, filtered blood is then pumped back into my body, leaving me with super clean, purified blood. So, what's the point of all this and why would people want to do this? So the point of this exact protocol that I underwent in the Instagram Live video is typically performed to purify the blood as much as possible, starting with a big bone marrow aspiration, where they concentrate the stem cells from the bone marrow for the treatment. The best candidates for a procedure like this are people who may be experiencing chronic arthritic pain or people who don't even want to get to that point as a preventative measure. A couple of benefits noted from the procedure were an improvement in sleep, faster recovery post-workout, as well as improved sexual experience in terms of firmness of the erection, the orgasm, etc. And, of course, the big one is improving on the present pain whether it's in your neck, back, or elsewhere. It's a game-changer for people who are in a lot of pain and just want to get back to feeling like they did when they were younger. It's like an oil change for the body, completely non-invasive, pain-free, and easy to do. So without further adieu, let's meet the doctors at Docere Clinics behind this stem cell makeover, Dr. Harry Adelson and Dr. Amy Killen. In this episode, you'll discover: -How Dr. Adelson became involved in stem cell therapy... -How the stem cell industry continues to evolve... -The stem cell therapy sequence... -Why people would seek stem cell therapy... -Aesthetic and sexual effects of Amy's portion of the treatment... -How you feel after the procedure... -Does it matter where the stem cells come from?... -Biohacks to stack with stem cell therapy... -Costs for the treatment... -How to find out more about Docere Clinics... -And much more!

    Calories In = Calories Out? Exploring The True Science Behind The Calorie & The Real Truth About Fad Diets.

    Play Episode Listen Later Mar 3, 2022 59:45 3 March 2022 Calorie information is ubiquitous. On packaged food, restaurant menus, and online recipes, we see authoritative numbers that tell us the calorie count of what we're about to consume. And many of us treat these numbers as gospel: counting, cutting, intermittently consuming, and, if you believe some “experts” out there, magically making them disappear. We all know, and governments advise, that losing weight is just a matter of burning more calories than we consume. Here's the thing, however, that most people have no idea about: All of the calorie counts that you see everywhere today are WRONG. In Why Calories Don't Count: How We Got the Science of Weight Loss Wrong, my guest on today's podcast, Dr. Giles Yeo, who is an obesity researcher at Cambridge University, challenges the conventional model and demonstrates that all calories are not created equal. He addresses why popular diets succeed, at least in the short term, why they ultimately fail, and what your environment has to do with your bodyweight. Once you understand that calories don't count, you can begin to make different decisions about how you choose to eat, learning what you really need to be counting instead. Practical, science-based, and full of illuminating anecdotes, this is the most entertaining dietary advice you'll ever find. During our discussion, you'll discover: -What's a calorie?.... -The A-B-C equation of measuring calories in food... -The problem with Atwater's factors... -What's a DIT value and why does that matter... -Did we get it right when it comes to labeling our food?... -Why we're terrible judges of calorie counting... -Advice for a good macronutrient ratio with minimal ultra-processed food in the diet...

    How To Charge Any Object In Your Home (Or Your Own Body) With Healing Frequencies: The Future Of Quantum Energy & EMF Protection With Philipp von Holtzendorff-Fehling Of Leela Quantum Tech.

    Play Episode Listen Later Feb 12, 2022 60:20 My guest on today's show, Philipp Samor von Holtzendorff-Fehling, is a coach, conscious entrepreneur, and "energy healer". In parallel to a successful international business career, he has constantly worked through blockages and barriers that he says prevented him to be able to truly connect with his true self. In his journey, he started to be able to literally see "energy fields" and thus developed his unique skills as a healer. Subsequently, he went through two decades of training in shamanic and other energy healing practices. During his business career he worked as an executive for several well known companies, including T-Mobile International and T-Mobile US where he served as Vice President. For his physical fitness he does yoga and plays tennis. When he still played tennis tournaments he finished in the top 8 in the US Senior Nationals. He lives in New Mexico with his wife and two kids. Philipp's primary business now is Leela Quantum Tech, a company that makes some very interesting equipment I've now been messing around with in my own home. Philipp has developed a unique technology that he claims can imprint pure quantum energy into any object, without any brute-force. This technology - right after assembly - supposedly is able to harmonize and neutralize harmful frequencies, including EMF of any kind. In addition, it can apparently be used in a very simple manner to optimize the well-being of any living organism, (humans, animals, plants), to copy any frequency into any object, and much more. With that technology Leela Quantum Tech has developed various products that come in handy in the daily life that all have a focus on well-being, strengthening one's self-healing power, harmonizing EMF, and more. Using information from "healers" (like European “Wunderkind” Roman Hafner) Leela Quantum Tech develops frequency sets for specific use cases that we mainly offer in the form of frequency cards. For example to promote inner peace, support the weight loss process, a special heal frequency set, etc. Leela Quantum Tech is a small privately funded company with the mission to do its part to help heal the world and to help increase consciousness. During our discussion, you'll discover: -About the necklace Ben is wearing during the interview that utilizes quantum energy... -How to know what's actual healing vs. placebo effect... -How the plates mitigate harmful EMF from your smartphone... -How these products are different from the various "bio geometry" devices on the market... -What happens if you put food into the block... -Why more consumer goods are not made to protect from harmful EMF's... -About the healers Leela uses to manufacture their products... -And much more!

    How To Diagnose & Fix Chronic Mystery Illnesses, Figure Out Which Supplements You Should Really Be Taking, Identify Specific Organ Problems & More With Monica Hershaft.

    Play Episode Listen Later Feb 10, 2022 98:50

    Monica Hershaft is one interesting practitioner, and on a recent Phoenix trip, I had a chance to experience her very unique flavor of muscle testing and nutritional prescription.  She is a bestselling author, motivational speaker and holistic health practitioner and nutritional consultant with Advanced Clinical Training Certification in NRT. After 10 years building one of the top-rated holistic health practices in Los Angeles, she developed ‘Treat the Source' a remote online program that helps those suffering from chronic symptoms who can't get a true diagnosis, to get their health and life back. Monica understands that just because your labs are normal, it doesn't mean you're not sick and she can explain why that happens and how to fix it! Too many legitimately sick people are being put on anti-depressants because the doctors can't figure out what's wrong with them and their labs are normal. Monica is here to tell you that you are not crazy and there are answers! Being plagued with her own mystery illness for 10+ years after participating in a popular detox program, Monica knows first-hand the frustration that chronic symptoms and an improper diagnosis can create for those struggling with their health. Having this personal experience has allowed Monica to not only heal her clients physically, but to understand them on a deep, personal level. Monica's conflict over incorporating animal protein and going Paleo in order to recover her health was the most difficult dilemma she had ever faced because she was born and raised Vegan. Her father is famed Animal Rights Activist, Founder, and Holocaust Survivor, Alex Hershaft. Her 10-year chronic, mystery illness finally resolved through a combination of adopting an altered Paleo style diet along with eliminating toxic overload because diet and nutrition alone was not enough to help restore immune function. This ethical crossroads was heartbreaking and riddled with doubt due to her upbringing and knowledge of the factory farming conditions. She will never consume animal protein that has been conventionally farmed, opting only for sourcing from grass fed, pasture raised Paleo-centric farms. Her father's many talks on the connection between animals being killed for food and their family's experience in the Holocaust, being transported in cattle cars to be killed in the camps, weighed heavily on her decision. Her father, Alex Hershaft, is well known all over the world for his Animal Rights organization and his many talks and videos about the connection between the Holocaust and the Vegan lifestyle. Monica was heartbroken that she was unable to recover her health as a Vegan. After working one on one with countless patients in her private practice located in Los Angeles, she realized it was time to create a program that could help more people on a wider scale and that led to the development of her online digital course "Treat the Source-The 3 Pillar Holistic Health Repair Program" to help people who are struggling with chronic symptoms and can't get a true diagnosis. This 12-week online program provides tips and tools as well as weekly actions and hacks to help them take their health back into their own hands no matter where they live. In this episode, you'll discover: -How a debilitating chronic "mystery" illness led to Monica's unique practice... -Breakdown of the evaluation and treatment Ben will receive... -First phase of treatment: muscle testing... -Body scan... -Reviewing the results of the two-part exam... -How to partake of Monica's expertise, even if you don't live in Phoenix... -And much more!

    How To Make Yourself Physically & Mentally More Gritty, Resilient & Harder To Kill With Jeff Banman Of Brute Force.

    Play Episode Listen Later Feb 5, 2022 68:48 My guest on this podcast, Jeff Banman, is a recognized leader in the area of human performance and human behavior in high-stress environments. With over 30 years of experience across multiple domains including the Fire Service, the US Army Special Operations Command and the Central Intelligence Agency, Jeff now serves as the COO & Chief Human Performance Officer for the global fitness brand Brute Force.  After conducting Counterterrorism operations in over twenty-three countries, two combat zones and multiple high-threat/non-permissive environments, Jeff has the privilege of dissecting human behavior at a micro level in order to enhance individual and team performance in some of the most intense moments imaginable. His study evaluated and developed algorithms for calculating minute shifts in Heart Rate Variability against variable stressors, distinct practices for managing the Central Nervous System while under significant stress and integrative techniques to help high-level operators remain fully present in order to navigate extreme situations. Jeff sees the world differently than most people. For three decades he has been someone people relied upon to solve highly complex problems in extreme and often intense situations. In his time as a Firefighter, Airborne Ranger and CIA Counterterrorism Operator and Business Leader, he's learned one big lesson - extreme and intense is as uniquely relevant to a person as is a fingerprint. We all perceive things differently and when we experience something significant, stressful or uncertain, Jeff teaches that we respond accordingly. Through his core work developing new human performance protocols for US SOCOM and the Intelligence Community, working with Professional Athletes and High Performing Business Leaders, he has dissected how we navigate intensity, diversity and complexity at any level and in any situation. That insight guides us to a greater level of awareness, an improved ability to regulate our own central nervous system, and a significant advantage in the behaviors that produce the results we are out to produce. During our discussion, you'll discover: -How childhood dreams manifested into Jeff's calling as a high-performance specialist... -How Jeff quantifies and manages the central nervous system in high-stress scenarios... -How Jeff has learned to disseminate what he's learned to others across the globe... -Why unstable loads are the key to Jeff's training program... -A rabbit trail on how to recover from Covid-induced brain fog... -A gold-standard workout using Jeff's practices... -Nutrition protocols recommended by Jeff for his workouts...

    The Art of Insubordination: How to Dissent and Defy Effectively With Todd Kashdan

    Play Episode Listen Later Jan 22, 2022 87:37 When I first received the book The Art of Insubordination: How to Dissent and Defy Effectively by my guest on today's show, Todd Kashdan, I thought it was going to be some fringe rebel handbook or something like TheAlchemist's Cookbook, or a title that was meant to incite riots and violence. I was dead wrong. Instead, this book is a research-based toolbox for anyone who wants to create a world with more justice, creativity, and courage. For ideas to evolve and for societies to progress, we desperately need rebels to challenge conventional wisdom and improve on it. Unfortunately, most of us fear nonconformists, perceiving them as disloyal, reckless, destructive, or just plain weird. Because most would-be rebels lack the strength and skills to overcome hostile audiences, principled insubordination remains an underleveraged asset in the workplace and public square. Based on cutting-edge research, The Art of Insubordination is the essential guidebook for anyone seeking to be heard, make a change, and rebel against an unhealthy, stagnant status quo. The book also gives the rest of us the evidence-based strategies we need to become better allies of our leaders in change, ensuring that the best ideas, products, and solutions survive and win the day. Inside this book lie answers to several questions, including: • What are the most effective ways to express unpopular, important ideas? • How can we help principled rebels be heard and influential? • How can we better manage the discomfort when trying to rebel or interacting with a rebel? Filled with fresh and engaging stories about dissenters in the trenches as well as science that will make you see the world in a different way, The Art of Insubordination is for anyone who wants to see more justice, creativity, inclusion, cultural dynamism, and innovation in the world. As a Professor of Psychology and a leading educator to the public, Todd Kashdan translates state-of-the-art science for practical application to improve our everyday lives. He is well-known for his energetic and disarming communication style. Todd received the 2010 Distinguished Faculty Member of the Year Award at George Mason University for his teaching and mentoring. He gave a TEDx talk on psychological flexibility and writes the “Curious?” blog for Psychology Today, which is enjoyed by more than four million readers. After receiving a Ph.D. in clinical psychology (2004), Todd founded the Well-Being Lab at George Mason University which has produced over 210 peer-reviewed journal articles on well-being and resilience, psychological flexibility, meaning and purpose in life, curiosity, and managing social anxiety. During our discussion, you'll discover: -How to define "insubordination"... -The difference between principled and destructive insubordination... -Five principles of persuasion when you're in the minority or demographically disadvantaged... -How a minority that affects change can avoid the mistakes of the preceding majority... -The three steps to raising principally insubordinate kids... -How to teach kids to view themselves as heroes in waiting... -And much more!

Struggling with shame and confusion of what it meant to be a man, he found his calling with the sacred art of hunting. He now desires to share this practice with more men. His indigenous name comes from a Crow Sun Dance chief. His spiritual lineage is derived from six years of mentorship from a Muskogee/Creek medicine man named Will "Star Heart". What is Sacred Hunting? A practice that leads us back to our origins. A reminder that, for our ancestors, obtaining the food that sustains life was a spiritual act involving bloodshed. A reconnection to nature and the earth that gave us birth. An opportunity for connection and tribal brotherhood. A transformative encounter with death. Mansal Denton, like the men he leads on wilderness quests, was raised in a culture alienated from its sources of nourishment and sustenance. A youthful indiscretion that led to a prison cell fundamentally altered his life's trajectory. Here, he shows the power and vitality that the hunt can bring into men's lives in this perilous time, when rites of passage are notably absent. Sacred Hunting brings the richness of his hunting experience, and that of the men whose journeys he facilitates, into inspirational focus. During our discussion, you'll discover: -How a stint in the clink became a rite of passage for Mansal... -Ben's preferred style of hunting and why... -When the hunt took on its sacred form for Mansal... -An insider's look at the sacred hunting experience... -Why it's especially empowering that sacred hunts occur with men only... -How plant medicines can enhance the hunt... -What occurs after the animal is killed... -And much more...

    Play Episode Listen Later Jan 6, 2022 75:22 When it comes to passing on important family values and beliefs to future generations, I firmly believe that family traditions are the powerful legacy-building tool in a parent's toolbox. Traditions, habits, rituals and routines are the glue that stick, the threads that bind and the clasps that hold a family together through the best and worst of times. As our family discussed in the recent podcast “The Official Greenfield Family Q&A Podcast: Parenting, Cooking, Traditions, Legacy-Building, Family Game Nights & More!,” we recently worked with the wonderful Rich Christiansen of Legado Family Founder, who specializes in helping families identify their core values, then create memorabilia, traditions, rituals, routines, comings and goings all based around those values. As a result, our family not only now has a “Greenfield Family Playbook” which is a guide that we can pass on to future generations in which all our values and traditions are listed, but we also have a family mission statement, a family crest being designed to hang above our fireplace, a family logo we can print on hats, shirts, mugs, and stickers, and even individual spirit animals and colors for each member of our family. If you're not already weaving traditions, rituals, routines and an emphasis on legacy into your own family, I encourage you to do so, with or without the help of a professional. It's been a transformative process that will impact the Greenfield family for generations. For more on the Greenfield family's comings and goings, you can also check out here! To explore this topic even more, I decided to interview Rich for my podcast. Rich helps families upgrade their relationships through a program consisting of five different modules that include detailed lessons and structures crafted carefully to enhance lasting ties and strengthen bonds. His Legado product revolutionizes the way families reconnect through sharing proven models, real-world experiences, valuable insight, and giving your family engaging activities for all age groups. Build Family Legacies provides the ultimate roadmap to building the best family legacy your family could ever imagine and no other brand can do it better.

During that discussion, Barrie briefly alluded to a special molecule he was deep in the throes of researching, a molecule that he was convinced could be one of the greatest new compounds that humankind has ever discovered for full-body health. Your body makes this thing on it's own, but your levels drop significantly with age, and thus there are remarkable longevity benefits as well as benefits for muscle protein synthesis, testosterone and hormone regulation, CoQ10 synthesis, and overall structural support for the body, along with reduction in the risk of age-related physical decline. The name of this molecule is geranylgeraniol, also known as "GG", and could very well be the next supplement Barrie would take to a desert island. After interviewing him, I'm certainly convinced it has great promise and I now plan to start taking it to assess results for myself. Dr. Barrie Tan is a research scientist with a Ph.D. in Chemistry and Biochemistry. For the last 35 years, Barrie has immersed himself in the world of Vitamin E (particularly from annatto) and is considered one of the world's foremost experts credited with discovering a molecule called “tocotrienol” from three major natural sources.
