How to Love People & Use Things, Whether Or Not You're A How to Love People & Use Things, Whether Or Not You're A "Hoarder," Minimalist Diets & Workouts & 7 Essential Relationships with Joshua Millburn.

Ben Greenfield Life

I've been interviewed a few times on the outstanding Minimalists podcast with Joshua Millburn and his partner in crime Ryan Nicodemus, who together founded The Minimalists. This time it was I who put one of them on the hot seat for my podcast, and was able to speak with Joshua about his journey into the minimalism mindset, how we sometimes go about it the wrong way, the four stages of hoarding, and much more. At first glance, people might think the point of minimalism is only to get rid of material possessions: Eliminating. Jettisoning. Extracting. Detaching. Decluttering....

Ben Greenfield Life

I have been supplementing with amino acids a lot lately. And so have many of you, as the Aminos supplement is easily the best-selling product over at Kion, my supplements company that I and Angelo Keely began in 2017. In fact, Angelo and I talked about amino acids, along with our then new protein powder on the podcast back in November of 2021. And since I've been using Kion Aminos to such great effect lately, I wanted to share what we talked about last year, because I know so many people have begun listening to the show since then. So enjoy! Angelo Keely is the co-founder and CEO of...

https://bengreenfieldlife.com/impactfulkids When I first received the book by my guest on today's show, , 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. I eventually wound up interviewing Todd for the episode "." But now, Todd is back—and he's back specifically to focus on content that will be featured in my upcoming book , which will...

Our kids need us now more than ever...

-Why are our children more sick, unfocused and depressed than any generation before them? 

-Is a shift in childhood education happening, what will it look like? 

-Why are more people homeschooling and unschooling than ever, and could it work for a busy family?

-What is authoritarian parenting and schooling, and how will it hurt my child in their adult life? 

-If discipline doesn't feel right, what is the alternative? 

-How can we reverse autism and chronic disease and what role do vaccines really play?

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.

Robin is a mother of two beautiful babies, a passionate cook, a Medical Intuitive, Reiki Master Practitioner, Energy Healer, Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and a member of the American Board of Drugless Practitioners. 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.
