May 22-26, 2015: Custom Father-Son Wilderness Program with Ben Greenfield. Imagine taking five days with your son(s), and connecting deeply with nature and your boy(s) through ancestral wilderness survival skills, all within a small “tribe” of other fathers & sons that are like minded with similar values. Since the dawn of time, fathers and sons have bonded deeply in and with the wilderness. Ancestral wilderness skills have an innate ability to deepen the Father-Son connection like nothing else. During this custom Father-Son Wilderness Program, we'll make fire by friction, build and sleep in natural shelters, learn traditional hunting and gathering techniques, and track wild animals. Primitive wilderness survival isn't a “Man vs. Wild” scenario, it is an opportunity to build a deep relationship with the Earth. As you and your son do so, you'll find that your relationship with your son deepens in powerful ways. Click here for all details and to register.

Exercising In The Heat vs. Sauna Training
Whole Doods: Ben talks a lot about Cold Thermogenesis and using saunas for fitness and health but what about just exercising in a hot location. He lives in Sierra Leone and when he works out, it is like he is always in a sauna and his heart rate is just jacked immediately and he sweats like a pig. Is he getting any added benefit by combining his hot environment with working out?
Should You Use Colloidal Minerals?
Wade: He recently heard about colloidal minerals from a friend of his (Dr Joel Wallick) and is wondering what you know about them and what your take is on them.
Healthiest Way To Clean Water Bottles
Meg: She is wondering what you use to clean your bike bottles and straws. She usually soaks hers in hot water and some bleach but is wondering if that is the best thing for her. What do you do?
How To Increase Pain Tolerance During Workouts
Lara: She wants to know how you deal with discomfort and pain and what it takes to get through training with the rules you set for yourself. She uses distraction and music and has read how effective that can be and she is wondering what your view is on this. She does have a lot of pain and distraction works well for her but is looking for some of your secrets.
Using Skulpt To Measure Body Fat
Sol: He's been hearing a lot about this new $200 body fat composition gadget called Skulpt and is wondering if it is really as good as their marketing material states? It uses electrical impedance which is in those cheaper devices but apparently they do it better. What do you think?
