New Discoveries Of The Week: Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!
– Really Good Book I'm Reading:
Mind to Matter: The Astonishing Science of How Your Brain Creates Material Reality: This wonderful new book on healing your body with your mind contains this anecdote I highlighted:
“If I offered you a pill that could increase your levels of circulating stem cells, lengthen your telomeres, dissipate beta-amyloid plaques in your brain, improve your memory and attention levels, boost your serotonin, repair your DNA, regulate inflammation, boost your immune system, repair your skin, bone, cartilage, and muscle cells, power up your GH levels for cell repair, and enhance the neural connections in your brain, how much would you pay for it? Though it’s priceless, it’s all free. EcoMeditation has been free on the Internet for over a decade. I’ve taught it to thousands of people all over the world. It’s ironic that what might be the biggest medical breakthrough of our generation is freely available to everyone, from the poorest to the richest.”
The idea that thoughts become things has become a meme in popular culture. It's held as a firm proposition in metaphysics, and some spiritual teachers ascribe infinite powers to the mind. But are these claims scientifically accurate? What does the scientific evidence tell us about the scope of the human mind to transform thoughts into reality?
New research and new discoveries in epigenetics, neuroscience, electromagnetism, psychology, cymatics (the study of wave phenomena), public health, and quantum physics are demonstrating that thoughts can indeed be profoundly creative. In this book, author Dawson Church examines the scientific facts and reviews the studies that show, step by step, exactly how our minds create material form. As each piece of the puzzle falls into place, the science turns out to be even more astonishing than the metaphysics.
Throughout the book, Church shares illuminating case histories and up-close, authentic personal accounts of people who had an experience of turning mind into matter. Drawn from the worlds of medicine, sports, business, healing, art, and scientific discovery, these stories run the gamut from profound to inspiring to heart-wrenching. Meticulously researched evidence is presented in a highly relatable form, using engaging, understandable, nontechnical analogies. Photos and illustrations enrich the text.
– Supplement I'm Using To Manage My Blood Sugar and Fat Loss
Kion Lean: It's not often that I “plug my own products” on this “things I've discovered” section you're now reading, but since beginning to test my blood glucose continuously using a Dexcom G6 implanted in my abdomen (as I describe in detail in my last post on how to track ketones and glucose), I've experimented with taking THREE servings of Kion Lean each day, and my blood glucose results are absolutely astounding. I'm taking two capsules before every meal, 3 times a day. I realize six capsules a day is a lot but I may actually continue this as a staple in my life extension and weight management protocol, and I'd highly recommend you try it, especially if you want support for normal blood sugar levels and healthy energy metabolism. You can get it here and read up on the ingredients.

::: Save 10% On My Mattress Of Choice :::
The top-of-the-line mattress with which my wife and I are obsessed with is made by Intellibed. It is non-toxic, hypo-allergenic and provides the back-supporting benefits of a firm mattress AND the deep, restorative, comfortable sleep of a soft one. Their original Gel Matrix tech keeps me cool, regulates my body temperature thus improving the quality of my sleep. Though I’ve slept on a handful of outstanding mattresses in recent years, this one is truly the “Cadillac” of them all. Watch my in-depth review here and take advantage of their special offer and 90-day in-home trial while it lasts: 10% off + free bamboo sheets + 2 Intellibed pillows + free mattress protector. All yours here.
::: 10% of Gosha's Organic ODNOVA Superfood :::
ODNOVA in the Polish language means “ renewal”, “revitalize”, “rejuvenate”. The best way I can describe these tiny ODNOVA products is that they are superfood concoctions with a honey-like texture that you can add to drinks, smoothies or simply eat by the teeny-tiny spoonful because they are powerful. The ODNOVA line of products is a super concentrated blend, and a mixture of 7 groups: Phytoplankton, Bee Products, Medicinal Mushrooms, Adaptogenic Herbs, Medicinal Spices, Superfoods, and Monoatomic Minerals. You can get them in “Energy”, “Focus” or “Glo” (for skin). Click here to check them out and use code Ben10 to save 10%.

My quote in this article about the carnivore diet is the only explicit part of the whole piece. I guess I was feeling cheeky that day. https://t.co/wUKLI4snxI

Check out this new full episode with Tom Bilyeu Impact Theory: BenGreenfieldFitness.com/Impact-Theory—“I’m a big fan of going after the low-hanging fruit: things like grounding, earthing, cold exposure, using the sauna, periods of calorie-restriction and modified #fasting. Lot’s of time in social settings…love and connection. Before you buy the expensive biohacks, instead go after this low-hanging fruit.”
