I first interviewed Thomas DeLauer in the episode The Ultimate Guide To Quelling Inflammation: Why Your Curcumin May Not Work, Surprising Effects Of Ginger Oil, Vegan Fish Oil Options & Much More!

Thomas is one of the leading experts in the world of chronic inflammation as well as the response of the human body to a low-carb diet. He is noted for his personal transformation from a 280-pound overweight corporate executive to not only being on the cover of health and fitness magazines worldwide but pioneering some of the mainstream awareness of auto-immune diseases and inflammation in general! Thomas has been highlighted in over 20 magazines showcasing his transformation and has been featured worldwide on the cover of Ironman Magazine, Muscle and Performance Magazine, Natural Muscle Magazine, ICON Magazine, Platform Magazine and Ironman Japan. His background is in Sports Psychology, although it is this passion for psychology coupled with a career in healthcare as a physician recruiter and owner of an ancillary lab services company that sparked his love for nutritional science and what makes the body tick.

He is currently working on a project in the 2nd phase of trials with Doctors at UCLA to identify a strain of bacteria that may help modulate inflammation within the body. It is partially due to his involvement in this study that he has developed such an interest in the world of cellular inflammation in the first place. Residing near Santa Barbara, California, with his wife, three dogs, two horses, and soon to be first son. Thomas promotes a lifestyle of living as close to the earth as possible to obtain the best possible results while still achieving maximum performance in every possible area of life.

  1. Victor Rodriguez Jr says:

    Hey Ben, is there a difference in effect on the type of alcohol you drink? Beer vs whisky vs wine.

    1. Yep, it's all in the podcast!

  2. ron says:

    do you have a colostrum supplement recommendation? or are they all pretty much the same?

  3. ron says:

    are all colostrum supplements the same? or do you have a recommendation?

    1. Definitely not all the same. This is what I use and recommend: https://getkion.com/shop/body/kion-colostrum/

  4. Mark says:

    Do you recommend Kor factor Glutathion or AF which you have also mentioned lately

  5. Mark says:

    Do you recommend Kor factor Glutathion or AF which you have also mentioned lately?

  6. Antti k. says:

    Minor correction: The code “BENGREENFIELD” in Four Sigmatic shops gives a -15% discount, not -50% discount. Thanks for the code!

  7. Jeff says:

    What is the recommended dosing for Korfactor? I am having trouble finding guidance on the website or product package. Thanks!

  8. Liver says:

    Everclear is the only way to go… run it IV next to the glutathione and ketone esters! Seriously though, a shot of Everclear with a few ounces of fresh lemon, sea salt and soda water makes it happen.

    P.S. I also take raw egg yolks and liver before and after drinking with good success. I may switch this practice to exclusively “after” drinking so that my own liver can do its thing. And of course one should only consume alcohol in a glycogen depleted state… if you don’t earn your survival first, what the hell are you drinking for?!

  9. virg says:

    Ben, thank you. Where can I purchase Glutathione for IV purposes? Seems like the logical way.

    1. I have a podcast coming out on this soon. Stay tuned!

  10. Tony says:

    Mia’s statement above reminded me of an inherited trait I have which is Mediterranean anemia: Better known today as thalassemia (or as beta thalassemia or thalassemia major). Wondering how that fits in to the picture. Thanks in advance.
