In today's show, we dive into why you should consider training in martial arts (especially jiu-jitsu), optimizing your endocannabinoid system to improve longevity and recovery for hard training, little-known ways to increase fertility, overcoming addictions to painkillers, and other drugs.

After suffering a spine and leg injury while entering college, Adam was treated with pharmaceutical opioids which led to an intense, but all too common, addiction. On his path to recovery, he became immersed in Zen Buddhism, health, and wellness, and began his lifelong path into spirituality. This eventually led Adam to study and graduate with a degree in applied physiology and kinesiology as he sought to bring greater physical healing to others, as he had done for himself.

For more than a decade, Adam was a strength conditioning and health coach at a renowned 5-star wellness and training facility, working with a wide array of professional athletes, company executives, and individuals seeking optimal health. Many of his clients were suffering from the same ailments—sleep issues, anxiety, inflammatory disorders, and a general emotional and spiritual disconnect. This led Adam to take a more holistic approach towards coaching his clients, combining advanced physical training with meditation and utilizing more ancient and shamanic healing arts, while incorporating a wide array of natural medicines and compounds including CBD. In 2017, Adam founded Element Health (use code BEN15 to save 15%), one of the leading suppliers of the most potent and high-quality full-spectrum CBD products in the world.
