Ben Greenfield Fitness

I recently read the book Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever! (and my twin boys also watched the accompanying documentary "Earthing"). Although I already knew about the importance of having an intimate connection with the planet we live upon, this book blew my mind when it comes to identifying one of the best solutions for chronic inflammation, better sleep, enhanced deep sleep and much more. Since reading it, I've been traveling everywhere with my grounding mat, wearing my Earth runners every day, and my boys have barely even touched their shoes. In the book, author Clint Ober...

Why You Shouldn't Let Modern Baby Food Anywhere Near Your Baby (& What To Use Instead To Make Your Baby Stronger & Smarter). show art Why You Shouldn't Let Modern Baby Food Anywhere Near Your Baby (& What To Use Instead To Make Your Baby Stronger & Smarter).

Ben Greenfield Fitness

Did you know.. ..a baby needs 30g of fat per day to support brain development, hormone regulation and build the immune system? Yet, sadly, nearly all modern baby food doesn't even come close to touching this daily requirement and furthermore, is chock full of preservatives, added sugars, non-organic, GMO ingredients and other toxins and additives that harm a baby's muscular and skeletal growth, cognitive development, immune system and much more. So I was incredibly pleased when I discovered a baby food I could finally get behind. As a father, nutritionist and health consultant, I can tell you...

Carnivore diet expert Dr. Paul Saladino was my guest on the show "The Truth About The Carnivore Diet: Everything You Need To Know About Dangers, Benefits, Mistakes & Hacks For Eating Only Meat."

And now he's back!

In this episode, we discuss my time at the Swiss Mountain Clinic, liver detoxes, European Biological Medicine, peptides, spirituality, hunting, survival, homemade pesto, BFR training, the carnivore diet (of course!) and much more.

Throughout the course of his life, Paul Saladino has embarked on many adventures that have shaped his personal interests – including his unique, individualized approach to medicine.

After studying chemistry at College of William he spent 6 years traveling and exploring. Highlights included a thru-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada, a summer in the New Zealand backcountry, and 2 years skiing and climbing in Wyoming's Teton Mountains. He returned to academic studies after these adventures, first becoming a physician assistant and practicing in cardiology before training at the University of Arizona, obtaining his M.D. in 2015.

He is a certified Functional Medicine practitioner (IFMCP) through the Institute for Functional Medicine and will complete his residency in psychiatry at the University of Washington this June. When he is not researching connections between nutritional biochemistry and chronic disease he can be found in the frigid waters of the pacific northwest in search of the perfect wave.

-Ben's thoughts on peptides...1:04:52

  • You can create amino acid sequences that target specific cellular function
  • Some peptides cross the blood brain barrier and act as neuro inflammatory
  • Decreased risk of all-cause mortality (Epitalon)
  • Humanin and motsC are the two most studied peptides currently
    • Unscheduled
    • Not approved by FDA for human consumption
  • The International Peptide Society
  • Many peptides are inexpensively produced in China; have undesirable compounds in them and incorrect amino acid sequences
  • Tailor Made Compounding
  • The industry has expanded beyond body building to more useful functions such as mitochondrial function, gut healing, nootropics, etc.
  • Frequency of injection varies by type of peptide and by individual need
  • Dr. Vladimir Khavinson did clinical research on epitalon
    • 10 day protocol, 2x yearly
    • Inject epitalon every day
  • Ben's personal experience with peptides
    • Saw no noticeable effects after doing the epitalon protocol
    • Big difference after BPC 157 and TB500
    • "Clean burning energy with enhanced focus"
