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....

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.

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...

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...
