BenGreenfieldFitness.com/hairgrowth , hair has always been the primary indication of confidence for most men. When you consider that two-thirds of men see hair thinning by the age of thirty-five, and men’s hair restoration is a $1.5 billion industry, you began to understand how much confidence is contributed to a man’s hair. But why? In , men identified hair as being the primary link between their youth and attractiveness. Ricciardelli observed how men with a full head of hair — even the ones who weren’t particularly otherwise attractive — go out of their way to bring attention to...

Ben Greenfield Fitness

BenGreenfieldFitness.com/timkennedy My wife and I recently immersed ourselves in a three-day close quarter combat and firearm and personal defense training course called "Sheepdog-Response". We experienced hours upon hours of grappling, close quarter combat, situational awareness, firearm training and much more. We were feeling a bit sore and beat up at the end, but definitely more prepared for any “curveballs” life may throw at us. I think these types of skills, along with skills such as wilderness survival, plant foraging, hunting, etc. are really good ways to ensure that one is prepared...

This is because while I've written about nearly every health-related subject matter in the past, what we know is constantly evolving. Today is my chance to share a few of the...

It's no secret that I weave into my personal health protocol many "ancient" tactics I've borrowed from the fields of Traditional Chinese Medicine and also Ayurveda, including...

...tooth and oral care via coconut oil pulling and tongue scraping...

...Tai Chi and Qi Gong-esque morning exercises...

...acupuncture, acupressure, and tapping...

...digestive organ massage...

...dry skin brushing...

...cooking and blending with ghee...

...and much more...

I find Ayurveda particularly intriguing.

After all, these days, time is scarce and precious in today’s world and we seek solutions that are quick. While allopathic medicine tends to focus on the management of disease, the ancient study of Ayurveda provides us with holistic knowledge for preventing disease and eliminating its root cause.

For the past 21 years, my guest on today's podcast and author of the excellent book Everyday Ayurveda: Daily Habits That Can Change Your Life in a Day, Dr. Bhaswati Bhattacharya, MPH, MD, Ph.D., DABHM, FABPM, HHC, CAP, has been practicing holistic family medicine emphasizing Ayurveda and teaching best clinical practices and educational techniques for learning Integrative Medicine.

She currently works between her private consultation medical practice in Manhattan and her deeper study of indigenous medicines around the world, when she consults with patients via phone/video conference.

She has recently completed a Ph.D. in Ayurveda at Banaras Hindu University (BHU) in the ancient city of Varanasi in India. As the first U.S. Fulbright Scholar sponsored jointly in 2013-2014 by the U.S. Department of State and the Government of India to research and teach Ayurvedic medicine, Dr. Bhattacharya continued research in the clinical and physicochemical bases of bhasmas, which are herbometallic compounds that often work quickly and cleanly to rebalance the body from "incurable" diseases.

For her Ph.D. thesis 2014-2018, she studied how plants work medicinally, from soil to stomach to cell. Specializing in The Patient, Dr. Bhattacharya actively incorporates traditional and indigenous medical systems into her clinical practice of holistic family medicine, using modern science only where it actually works for real patients.

The goal is not a clinical trial; it is to help each patient improve his/her quality of life, health, and well-being. She defines, refines, and practices medicine on a holistic and truly integrative path. She provides holistic medical care for the underserved as well as for insured patients.

Modalities that Dr. Bhattacharya uses include herbs, nutrition, yoga, breathwork (pranayama), exercise counseling, energy work, mind-body medicine, homeopathy, and aromatherapy, with a strong underpinning of Ayurveda, as well as the use of biomedical drugs and procedures as needed.

    1. Rise an hour before dawn
    2. Lie still and listen to your belly
      • Your belly conveys how it's doing (your second brainyour guttalks to your first brain)
      • The gut tells you what it wants (if you are hungry) and any other information (gut instinct)
    3. Bend fully down and touch the ground with your hands; say a prayer before stepping on the earth
      • When you twist your body you twist your gut; waking it up
    4. Sit up, take a small sip of water from your right palm and swallow
      • Gives information from your mouth's microbiome to your body (do this only when you are healthy)
      • Things growing in your mouth signals the body to produce natural antibodies as well as hormones
    5. Head to the toilet
    6. Wash your hands, wash your face with cold water, a little bit of water into each nostril and expel
    7. Swish some water in your mouth
    8. Clean your teeth
      • Use a small Nim tree branch (4 inches long), chew on it, brush teeth with it, spit the bitter juice, rinse your mouth with water
    9. Tongue scraping
    10. Swish your mouth with sesame oil; very good for lubricating the nerves
      • Put some oil on your fingers, swipe on the insides of your cheek, gums, and put some hot water in the mouth
    11. Fill the 5 senses with beauty, good things, light a candle, light incense, touch something soft, tulsi plant
    12. Look in the mirror, present yourself for the day; head to the kitchen to sip your first beverage
