How To Upgrade Your Dreams
A few weeks ago, I filled you in on the Aztec Dream Herb. Here are some other “dream hacks” that I've been experimenting with lately:
- Ultrasonic Mugwort Tincture – 1-5 drops is standard, 5-10 will get you pretty lit up, “blissy,” and euphoric. Above 10 has a higher potential for neurotoxicity and will result in feelings similar to an electrolyte imbalance.
- Ultrasonic Damiana / Mugwort – A credible amount of the Damiana (approximately one 15 mL bottle) + a small amount of Mugwort (2 drops) can lead to some pretty intense lucid dreaming. Adding some Aztec Dream Herb into the mix has the potential to be a powerful synergent (new word).
- DreamScape – Powerful on its own for crafting a lucid dreamscape. Apply to your feet, wrist, and below your nose right before bed.
Interestingly enough, I've noticed (in my physiology) higher amounts of C60 sublingually seem to really potentiate my dream space when used RIGHT before bed. IE. (10-20 mL).
Weightlifting Is A Waste Of Time?
Actually, the full title of the book is Weight Lifting Is a Waste of Time: So Is Cardio, and There’s a Better Way to Have the Body You Want.
This one actually turned out to be a surprisingly good book, chock full of info on everything from pre-loading prior to workouts with strange substances such as glycerol and Viagra (yes, Viagra), how to induce massive amounts of muscle hypertrophy and hyperplasia with minimal training, the shocking effects of so-called “variable resistance training” and much more. Dr. Jaquish lays out a superior strength training approach that has been seen to put 20 pounds of muscle on drug-free, experienced lifters (i.e., not beginners) in six months.
So, if you’re short on time, and desire more muscle with a minimalist approach, grab the book here and also get his X3 Bar here (use code BEN to save $50), which you’ll definitely need for the program in the book.

::: Save Up To $10 On A Vitamin You're Probably Deficient In :::
At least 40% of the population is deficient in vitamin B12. Add to that the fact that your ability to absorb vitamin B12 gradually decreases with age, and you can see why some are calling B12 deficiency a silent epidemic that can have serious consequences to your health. If you find you are experiencing…
- Unexplained fatigue
- Vision issues
- Pins and needles
…then you definitely want to consider B12 supplementation.
The B12 supplement I take and recommend is PuraTHRIVE Liposomal B12 w/Fulvic Acid. It’s a highly specialized formula that delivers via liposomal technology the highest quality B12 directly to your cells to optimize your health, and it includes fulvic acid for increased bioavailability.
Just a few sprays in your mouth delivers the highest quality B12 directly to your cells resulting in steady energy, an overall sense of well-being, a healthier brain, and more. Use my link to save up to $10 per bottle.

How To Create A Low-EMF Healthy Home Pt. 1 There are plenty of steps you can take to minimize EMF exposure, not only in your home but also beyond the confines of your abode. Most of what I'm about to share with you is free or inexpensive, and easy to implement right away. Links to all studies and products can be found in this week’s article in my bio. Here are 5 simple steps you could get started on today to make your home safer: 1. Connect your computer to the internet with an ethernet cable rather than WiFi. Avoid wireless keyboards, printers, and other accessories. If you don’t have an ethernet port, you can easily pick up an adapter on Amazon. 2. Turn off your WiFi whenever possible. This is especially important for sleep. You can use a wall timer to automate this process so that your WiFi shuts off at, say, 10 pm every night then turns back on in the morning. 3. Turn off the electricity to your bedroom at night to reduce electrical fields from the wires in your wall. I know this next suggestion may not be plausible for everybody, but I take it a step further and turn off the electricity to my entire house at night, save for my refrigerator and a few other appliances that must continue running. 4. Refuse smart meters on your home. If you already have one, add a shield. (Some of these have been shown to reduce radiation by 98 to 99 percent. For more info check out BenGreenfieldFitness.com/409) 5. Replace compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs with incandescent bulbs. Ideally, remove all fluorescent lights from your house. Not only do they emit unhealthy light but, more importantly, they will actually transfer current to your body by simply being close to the bulbs. Once you've EMF-proofed your home and taken steps towards reducing EMF exposure from your electronic appendages, you may want to consider investing in some of the following EMF-mitigating foods and supplement that I will be discussing tomorrow! Are you hacking EMF out of your everyday life? Show me! Send in a pic or video/ tag me in your IG story and share how you’re mitigating EMF in YOUR life and I’ll choose one of you to send a copy of Boundless.
