We’ve got another Q&A episode with Ashleigh VanHouten and we kick off the conversation with gratitude, sharing about our tendency to become entitled when we have immediate access to everything all the time and how we need to generate a daily attitude of thankfulness. Self-acceptance also plays a big role because your ability to love yourself will inevitably trickle down to how you treat the people around you and how you influence your environment with positive or negative energy.

Later we transition into our main topic for today – peptides, discussing what they are, how they can be manipulated for health optimization and how you might go about getting hold of them. We talk all things Thymosin, Epitalon, Ipamorelin and Tesamorelin and Ben shares about the results he has seen and heard from others, including their antiaging and tissue recovery properties. Ever wondered why Ben trained barefoot most of the time? Today he gives you a thorough explanation and some helpful advice if you’d like to be better connected to mother earth in this way!
