EP #1389: How Gentle Walking After Meals Can Ease Bloating, Gas, and Improve Digestion

Lisa is joined by Dr. David Clarke who is a really fitting expert on the topic of - ‘fart walking.’  It’s a trending topic, even viral. It’s even known to reduce the risk of Type 2 diabetes. While Dr. Clarke's primary focus is on Psychophysiologic Disorders (PPD), and he's president of the psychophysiologic Disorders Association - he's also board-certified in gastroenterology, making him a stellar resource on a the trending topic known as 'fart walking.' Believe it or not - it's a thing. Health.com, Self Magazine & others are reporting on it, and it's quite viral on TikTok and YouTube. Amazon is selling T-shirts about 'fart walking, and' 2024 is even being dubbed the year of ‘fart walking,’ according to Yahoo News.Here are Dr. Clarke's points on the matter (it’s a bit long-winded. Pun intended) What are the main benefits to walking after dinner?Mild to moderate exercise, such as walking, has a beneficial effect on gastrointestinal muscle contractions by accelerating stomach emptying, improving transit through the intestinal tract, and promoting the clearance of gas and waste through the digestive system. This can help alleviate issues like bloating, and constipation.2. How does a walk help with gas/bloating? Can you be specific about the mechanism? The walking promotes muscle contractions in the stomach and intestines that can lead to belching and farting, both of which reduce gas in the GI tract and thereby reduce the bloated feeling.3. Does an after-dinner walk really reduce your risk of diabetes? How? Walking after a meal facilitates removal of blood sugar by the muscles and thereby reduces the need for insulin secretion by the pancreas. Walking also helps avoid weight gain by burning calories. Theoretically this should reduce the risk for future development of diabetes, but a formal study of this potential benefit has not yet been done.4. How does it impact heartburn? Walking increases muscle contraction by the stomach which facilitates emptying of the stomach. More rapid emptying will decrease the time that acid is present in the stomach, which will reduce the time that acid has the potential to travel (reflux) into the esophagus (the muscular tube between throat and stomach) and cause heartburn. However, some people with poor tone in the sphincter muscle at the junction of the esophagus and stomach might experience more acid reflux when stomach contractions are stimulated by walking.5. What's the optimal way to do a fart walk? Can you provide specifics on how long to walk for, how long after eating, and how intense of a walk it should be? Aim for at least 4-5 minutes of light to moderate walking within 60-90 minutes of finishing a major meal. For more sustained benefits for your GI tract and the rest of your body, incorporate 30-60 minutes of moderate-paced walking on most days of the week. Avoid prolonged exercise sessions beyond 1 hour or intense exercise, as this may start to negatively impact GI function. The key is to find the right balance.

EP #1358: Unlock the Power of Pink Noise: Sleep Sounder, Remember More

Hi, I'm Lisa Davis. So glad you are listening to Health Power. You can see some clips from the shows if you'd like, if you go to my Twitter, TikTok, and Instagram at lisa.davis.mph. All right, today we're talking about an article from Naturally Savvy, how pink noise boosts memory and improves sleep. Now, I didn't even know there was such thing as pink noise until I came across this article. I have a white noise machine and that helps me tremendously, but let's jump in and find out what this pink noise is all about. So, changes in sleep patterns occur as we get older.with the most common ones being more trouble staying asleep and a harder time falling asleep. And according to the National Sleep Foundation, these are a normal part of the aging process. But now researchers say they may have a solution to these problems and it may even boost your memory as well, which is pink noise. So I mentioned the white noise machines, which according to noise sound engineer, Stephane Pigeon, is not what most of us typically think of when we hear the term comforting sounds.that help us block out the surrounding environment. Now, Pajone explains white noise as the following. A true white noise deals in the second fundamental component of the sound wave, the frequency. Frequency is how fast the waveform is vibrating per second. That's pretty technical. It's easier to understand if you associate it with a single note. Take the middle C note on a keyboard. That note has a frequency of about 261.1 hertz.To make white noise, a sound engineer combines an equal amount of energy of every frequency a human can hear. Imagine it like hundreds of musicians playing every single note you can hear at once at the same volume. That's white noise. Wow, I didn't realize it was really interesting. Okay, so what's pink noise? So pink noise is a soothing, gentle sound composed of octaves possessing equal energy. It is essentially the background noise we are used to hearing every day and don't even notice.Researchers at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois discovered that if they synced pink noise to the brainwaves of older men and women while they slept, the subjects experienced better quality of deep sleep as well as an improvement in memory. That's so interesting. Now it's been shown in numerous studies over the years, sleep is critical for converting short-term memories into long-term memories. The type of sleep that is necessary for this conversation is deep sleep, AKA,Lisa Davis (02:23.29)slow wave sleep or non dream state sleep, which is part of the non rapid eye movement sleep cycle. And as we get older, the quality of deep sleep declines, which in turn can have a significant impact on memory as well as sleep quality. Deep sleep is also important because it's a stage when the body cells increase production and there's a reduction, the breakdown of proteins. Thus, this is a time of tissue repair, giving meaning to the term beauty sleep.Other benefits of deep sleep are a slowing of activity in the areas of the brain involved with emotion, social engagement, and decision-making, which suggests deep sleep helps people maintain an emotional balance. So let's talk about how scientists use pink noise. So in previous studies in young adults, they found a link between acoustic sound stimulation of deep sleep brain activity and an improvement of memory. Now these findings prompted Dr. Phyllis Zeea professor of neurology at the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern and her colleagues to try acoustic simulation in a group of older adults and see how it affected sleep and memory. So if you want all of the details of the study, you can see the show notes. I'll just tell you briefly that the study group consisted of 13 men and women ages 60 to 84, who each were subjected to one night of acoustic stimulation involving pink noise synced to the participants' brave waves.and one night of sham placebo stimulation. So I'm gonna guess what happened is, and this is what happened, that memory recall was three times better after acoustic stimulation. Well, I might not have known it was three times better. With pink noise in it was with the placebo stimulation, the improvement in memory correlated with the boost in the quality of deep sleep and therefore an improvement in sleep quality. So I think I'd like to get a pink noise machine. I think it sounds absolutely fascinating. So...Check that out, check me out, check out the show notes. Keep coming back to Health Power five days a week, rate, review, subscribe. Thanks so much. Have a great day.

EP #1352: There's a new nut in town - PILI NUTS!

Lisa Davis (00:00.558)Hi, I'm Lisa Davis. So glad you're listening to Health Power. You can watch clips from every episode by going to my Instagram, my TikTok, and my ex, formerly known as Twitter, at Lisa Davis MPH. So if you want to check me out, check out my guests, see what we're doing beyond just listening to us, that is an option for you. As well as I have a YouTube page now, if you look up Lisa Davis MPH.All right, today we're going to be talking about an article from NaturallySavvy .com. There's a new nut in town, Peely Nuts. When I hear there's a new nut in town, I think of that song by the Eagles. There's a new kid in town. Hi, everybody's talking. So there's a new nut in town, Peely or Piley. I don't know. P -I -L -I Nuts. Let's jump into this dense superfood and find out about it. Okay. So it is also known as Canary and it is the product of a tropical evergreen tree.The tear shaped nuts are about 1 .6 to 2 .8 inches long and each end of the nut is pointed, one being less pointy than the other. That's really interesting. So each kernel is composed of approximately 8 % carbohydrate, 11 .5 to 13. % protein and 70 % fat. Now, if you listen to the show, you know, I'm a big fan of healthy fats. Peeling nut trees are found throughout Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines. And the nuts are harvested from natural strands of the trees in the mountains.These nuts are popular for their taste and nutrition as well as their oil, which can be used for making soaps and cosmetics. That sounds fantastic. So what do the nuts taste like? Raw peely nuts are said to taste similar to sunflower seeds, while others say they're closer to macadamia nuts or even a combination of all types of nuts together. When you roast them, they have a chewy exterior and a buttery interior. Okay, that really sounds delicious. So what are some of the health benefits?All right, they're high in nutrition. They are reportedly a complete protein, which means they contain all the essential amino acids you need. That's incredible. They are high in calories, coming in at 650 calories per cup. However, eating just a few of these nutrient -dense nuts slowly will satisfy your hunger and give you a nutritional boost as well. In fact, peeling nuts contain the most magnesium of all nuts.Lisa Davis (02:19.086)A single serving completes your daily dose of copper and manganese as well. That's pretty cool. Ooh, anti -inflammatory properties. There's a lot of focus on the impact of inflammation on health today. We talk a lot about it here on Health Power. And these nuts are up to the challenge. Peeles contain many antioxidant compounds, including vitamin E to fight inflammation at all levels in the body. They can lower cholesterol. Oh, that's so interesting. So they have omega -3 fatty acids, which are super important.They help our skin, they help our hair, but they also help balance cholesterol levels, especially lowering bad cholesterol, LDL. They aid in anti -aging. Now I don't like the word anti -aging. I would just say they help in aging. So the botanical antioxidants in peeling this, are your friends when it comes to aging powers and helping you stay looking the way you'd like as well? Well, you know, that's a whole nother conversation. Including these KC morsels in your diet can help fight free radicals and promote.wrinkles and other signs of aging. Oh, that promote wrinkles. Promote better sleep. Magnesium is a mineral known for its ability to support sleep and the release of relaxing hormones. I gotta get my hand on these because I am sensitive to most nuts. So I need to, or actually just not all nuts, not seeds, but I don't like seeds as much, but I'm gonna give this a try because if this tastes anything like a macadamia nut, I am on board. Wow, there is so much these nuts do.They support your bone health. Your bones need more calcium to stay strong and peeling nuts provide several of those bone supporting nutrients, calcium, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, all necessary for bone strength. Boost brain power. Peeling nuts contain, like I said, omega -3 fatty acids, which have been shown to help with improving cognitive function in the brain, including learning, concentration, awareness, and memory.Omega -3s also appear to be helpful in offering some protection against neurodegenerative associated neurodegeneration associated with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. All right, where can I get these Peely Nuts? Because I literally am going to run out the door after this and try to find them. Now you may not see them on the shelves next to the wall nuts from Academia Nuts in most stores. They are beginning to make their presence known in a few large retailers. Another option is to go on Amazon and type in Peely Nuts.Lisa Davis (04:38.222)So definitely check them out. Check me out. Again, go watch the clips if you'd like on my Instagram, TikTok and X at Lisa Davis, MPH. Also be sure to rate, review, subscribe and keep coming back to Health Power. Thanks so much.

EP #1347: 8 Reasons to Start Your Day with Lemon Water

TRANSCRIPT: Hi, I'm Lisa Davis. So glad you're listening to Health Power. It's been a little while since I've done a health quickie, so I'm going to bring them back. Today we're going to start talking about. Hi, I'm Lisa Davis. So glad you're listening to Health Power. Today I'm going to do a naturally savvy health quickie where I talk about an article from www.naturallysavvy.comSo today I'm talking about eight reasons to start your day with lemon water. Now this is something that I've been thinking about doing for a long time and I haven't, so I'm really hoping that this will get me over the edge to do it. So the first thing it does is it gives you an energy boost. So if you rely on caffeine to give you that boost in the morning, that can have some long -term consequences, including taking a toll on your adrenal glands, which by the way are already overworked thanks to stress, late nights, too many stimulates.Instead, lemon water oxygenates and energizes the body. It's a great jumpstart to your day. Now, the second reason is one of the ones that I've been wanting to do it is that it promotes good digestion. Now, according to Dr. John Maston -Endy, lemon, excuse me, lemon water stimulates the stomach to increase its production of digestive juices and improves peristalsis, the muscular contractions that push food through the entire digestive system.Improved digestion, what does that mean? Better nutrient absorption, which we all want, and less bloating, which I definitely want. Number three, it stimulates elimination. Elimination, a simple glass of lemon water stimulates the liver's production of bile. This combined with improved peristalsis, which I just mentioned, of the entire digestive system is a more natural method of waste removal. So lemon water acts as a mild diuretic.increasing the frequency of urination and gently flushing out toxins from the urinary tract. The result, better waste and waist W -A -I -S -T management. Number four, it gives your immune system a boost. Well, everybody wants that. A squeeze of fresh lemon juice gives you a shot of the antioxidant vitamin C, about 44 .5 milligrams per lemon. But more importantly, it helps the body maintain a balanced pH Even though lemon tastes acidic, inside the body it is alkaline. And I'm sure you've all heard about how important it is to be alkaline. Number five, it helps detox the liver with more than 500 functions. The liver is a very busy organ. It is the most important role, excuse me, it's most important role is to filter the blood of waste products, drugs, pesticides, and other poisons. So lemon juice is really powerful and it helps to stimulate bioproduction like we talked about.Number six, it helps you lose weight. The liver is an important fat burning organ. It regulates fat metabolism, breaking down fats and shipping them out via the large intestine. So just keep that in mind as well, but there's a lot of other factors that are important. Better skin. Number seven, the detoxifying action of drinking lemon water will release impurities through every exit point or detoxification channel, including the skin.Now you might have a mild amount of acne at first while stuff's getting cleaned out, but soon you will be replaced with a healthy glow. I know I'm touching my face like I have a healthy glow, but I do, but I don't have the lemon water going yet, but I will. Number eight, hydration. Lemon water, excuse me, lemon makes water taste better. And if it tastes better, you're going to drink more. So that's a really good thing. So the bottom line, there's a lot of good reasons to start your day with lemon water. Will you be picking up this habit? Yes, I will.I hope you do as well for whatever reasons work for you, reason or reasons, but keep coming back to Health Power five days a week. I'm back to doing my health quickies. This is really quick. This is gonna be under four minutes. Who doesn't have time for that? Anyway, everybody keep coming back. Rate, subscribe and have a great day. Thanks. Oh.

EP #1317: Train Your Brain & Body to Thrive During Stress & Recover from Trauma with Elizabeth Stanley, Ph.D

Lisa is joined by Elizath Stanley, Ph.D, the author of Widen the Window: Training Your Brain and Body to Thrive During Stress and Recover from Trauma.  Elizabeth A. Stanley, PhD, is an associate professor of security studies at Georgetown University. She is the creator of Mindfulness-Based Mind Fitness Training (MMFT)®, taught to thousands in civilian and military high-stress environments. MMFT® research has been featured on 60 Minutes, ABC Evening News, NPR, and in Time magazine and many other media outlets. An award-winning author and U.S. Army veteran with service in Asia and Europe, she holds degrees from Yale, Harvard, and MIT. She's also is a certified practitioner of Somatic Experiencing, a body-based trauma therapy.BOOK DESCRIPTION: Stress is our internal response to an experience that our brain perceives as threatening or challenging. Trauma is our response to an experience in which we feel powerless or lacking agency. Until now, researchers have treated these conditions as different, but they actually lie along a continuum. Dr. Elizabeth Stanley explains the significance of this continuum, how it affects our resilience in the face of challenge, and why an event that's stressful for one person can be traumatizing for another.This groundbreaking book examines the cultural norms that impede resilience in America, especially our collective tendency to disconnect stress from its potentially extreme consequences and override our need to recover. It explains the science of how to direct our attention to perform under stress and recover from trauma. With training, we can access agency, even in extreme-stress environments. In fact, any maladaptive behavior or response conditioned through stress or trauma can, with intentionality and understanding, be reconditioned and healed. The key is to use strategies that access not just the thinking brain but also the survival brain. By directing our attention in particular ways, we can widen the window within which our thinking brain and survival brain work together cooperatively. When we use awareness to regulate our biology this way, we can access our best, uniquely human qualities: our compassion, courage, curiosity, creativity, and connection with others. By building our resilience, we can train ourselves to make wise decisions and access choice--even during times of incredible stress, uncertainty, and change.With stories from men and women Dr. Stanley has trained in settings as varied as military bases, healthcare facilities, and Capitol Hill, as well as her own striking experiences with stress and trauma, she gives readers hands-on strategies they can use themselves, whether they want to perform under pressure or heal from traumatic experience, while at the same time pointing our understanding in a new direction.

Thick, wonderful sound, you can rub it in your hands to soften it and it makes your skin amazing. There's a day and night facial oil which I use every day and night.

And of course, they also have a pet shampoo bar, please check them out at one Earth body care.com.Here on the show, we really try to emphasize using food as medicine. So I decided that after being in health media since 1998, yes, it's been a long time that I've been in this business and I love it. I wanted to write a book and I wanted to interview top experts in a field and I thought what is a great thing that no one really talks about, that we can actually improve through better eating. And I thought sex, sexual health is a big deal. And there are so many great ways to enhance your sexual health to enhance your connection. So today, I'm going to be joined by the wonderful Aaron McDonald, rd. And she did the recipes for my book, which is available now for pre order on Amazon, clean eating dirty sex, sensual superfoods and aphrodisiac practices for ultimate sexual health and connection. Aaron, so glad you're joining me for this. Thank you so much for having me, I am thrilled to be on Well, we're gonna have some fun. You know, first of all, I always have to tell people that the book is not about dirty sex, it's a play on words clean, dirty, I thought it was funny. So I really want to emphasize that and you know, Aaron, you've read the book and you know, you saw it really is about how to connect with your partner. It does obviously have information about sex and information about positions and about you know how to give yourself pleasure, and it's but it's written in a very informative way, an interesting way. It I would say it's very far from dirty, but very good in terms of really helping you have a fulfilling sex life, wouldn't you say? I absolutely agree. And I think that's the thing that most people forget about is the sense of connection. You know, you really want to be connected with your partner in order to be able to have a more fulfilling sex life to have something that's more meaningful and more passionate, and good for good for both, you know, both party.It's so true. You know, I just want to mention some of the people I interviewed for this book, because you've heard I'm here and naturally savvy and if not also on a talk healthy today. Susan salmonellae is wonderful. She has fantastic skincare products, and she's written a great book, and she's really big on using food. Not only you know, for your overall healing, but the way that it affects our skin. There's a wonderful, everybody. I mean, there's Michael Clapper, he's an MD testmasters is a smoothie gal Jake panna Savage has been on the show he does yoga, we talk about partner yoga, we've probably all heard of Kellyanne Bertucci, MD, she's a bone broth woman. As a matter of fact, Aaron, you and I were talking about bone broth on top healthy today recently, and what a great thing it is. And that has to do with our not only our beauty, but the way our body works in our gut. There's so many different things. So when I came to you and I said I want you to create recipes that are going to enhance sexual health, Did it surprise you? Or were you like, oh, yeah, that totally makes sense. I would totally makes sense. Absolutely. Because food is healing food is medicine and food. You know, I always tell people food can either be the greatest medicine or the worst poison. So if we want to be healthier, have less inflammation in our bodies feel better, have more energy better, but blood flow that's going to all stem from what you put in your body fast food and we've got to start from a place of looking at food as medicine. Food is going to heal your body make you feel better, and heck, yeah, if you're feeling better, you have more energy and you have better blood flow, you're gonna have definitely better sex life. Yeah. And so you know, one of the things that we look at in the book is we look at different foods, different types of foods, and we also look at that some happened to be more like, let's say nature's Viagra instead of taking your Viagra and there's also some natural antidepressants and these are all wonderful Whole Foods and natural foods and it's so great that Aaron was able to put them into such delicious recipes, which we will talk about shortly. And you know, speaking ofViagra I interviewed for the book Dr. Dudley down off who was a wonderful neurologist at UCLA. And he talked about how sometimes you'll see a man who or this oftentimes happens, who is overweight, hasn't exercised in years, eats a bunch of crap. And he'll say, I'm gonna give you this Cialis or this Viagra as a bridge, but I want you to make some lifestyle changes. And he said, when they do when they lose weight, when they start eating better, they come back and say, You're right, I don't need that medication. And I think it can make such a difference. Also drew Manning, who I'm a huge fan of, oh, my gosh, I don't know if you know him, but he is awesome, fit to fat to fit. He's a personal trainer, who he's been on. He's been nationally savvy, but he's been on talk healthy today. He also has his own podcast of fit to fat to fit. He gained 75 pounds on purpose, because he felt like he just wasn't getting it. He had been athletic his whole life. And he's working with people who are out of shape. And if you'd like to see this, don't eat that just do this. And he's like, Why isn't this working? So he gained 75 pounds. And he realized how addictive the processed food is. He said, like some of the cereals that you have. And he was, you know, people think, oh, did you just eat doughnuts all day? He's like, No, I just ate the standard American diet full of highly processed junk, right, Aaron, I mean, it. It's amazing what can happen and how your tastebuds start to change. And they crave that and how hard it was for him to lose all the weight and get back in shape, which he did. But that was a pretty I don't know, it's a pretty tough experiment. But it also has sexual health went down the drain when he was, you know, eat all that food. Oh, I agree. 100%. And the standard American diet is not healthy period and a story you know, because what is the standard American diet is full of refined white grains, lots of grains in general, lots of sugar, lots of bad fats, it's not balanced. So when you eat a meal, it's usually a very, very high carbohydrate meal, low in protein, low in fat, hardly enough fruits and vegetables that come in your you know, on your daily meal intake. And it's just so overly processed. And you know, when you get something overly processed, it's devoid of important vitamins and minerals, you're not getting these anti inflammatory compounds that you can get naturally from fruits and vegetables and beans and legumes and whole grains and healthy fats. So you walk around feeling said even overfed, but completely undernourished and sick and poor energy and brain fog. I mean, stop me if you've you know, heard this one before.

And I don't even you know, I don't want to I don't like to focus too much on, you know, well, if you're overweight, you're this or that, you know, in terms of a looks thing, because I think we're all different shapes and sizes. I think if we're moving our bodies, and we're trying to eat healthy, I think that's what counts because I feel like I don't want women to feel like, oh, I have to be a certain size, I have to be this because there's so much of that, right? So it's like this delicate dance when she says her and of not making people feel bad, but also wanting them to be healthy. Like, I find that to be tricky for me sometimes. Absolutely. And body size is very individualized, you know, you don't have to look and be a certain size and shape to be, quote unquote, healthy. Because you can start off at a larger body size a

EP #1264: Be More Tree: A journey of wisdom, symbols, healing, and renewal with Alice Peck

Lisa is joined by Alice Peck who talks about her book, Be More Tree: A journey of wisdom, symbols, healing, and renewal.Book decsription:As author Alice Peck reflected on the maple tree in her backyard, she began to notice and then study its intricacies and changes. This became her regular meditation and inspiration. In Be More Tree, Alice shares what she has learned from that maple tree, and from the trees all around us. Every tree tells a complete and ongoing story—from its powerful taproots to the birds that alight on its fragile high branches. Trees reflect our lives through their perseverance and seasonal rhythms—always changing yet consistent. They evolve along a much more protracted timetable than humans. Like us, trees feel and react to their environment, and communicate with us in subtle but distinct ways. Here readers are invited to explore trees from four perspectives: their roots—wisdom and understanding; their branches—symbols and rituals; their leaves—healing and science; and their seeds—transformation and spirituality. All of these elements show us how, although they live outside us, trees offer a path to our inner selves. From the Bodhi Tree to the Garden of Eden, the Druids to forest monks, medicines to tire swings—people have always received physical, psychological, and spiritual sustenance from trees. Filled with insights from botany to poetry, ecology to mythology, and herbalism to sacraments, Be More Tree explores the ways these grounded yet soaring entities can steady and move us, teach and transform us, inspire and comfort us.This show is part of the Spreaker Prime Network, if you are interested in advertising on this podcast, contact us at https://www.spreaker.com/show/5948889/advertisement

2019 TBT - Natural Remedies for Cold and Flu with Dr. Cass Ingram

Instead of talking about an article today from www.naturallysavvy.com, Lisa decided to post an interview she did with Dr. Cass Ingram from 2019 on natural remedies for cold and flu.Dr. Ingram passed away in 2022. Dr. Cass's obituaryIt is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dr. Cass Ingram (Cassim Igram) on Saturday, March 12, 2022, in his Illinois home. He was 66 years old. A prolific author, researcher, lecturer, and popular media personality, Dr. Cass will be remembered for his passionate endorsement of wild medicinal herbs and spices and his belief in the healing power of wild harvested whole foods. His most lauded professional accomplishment was his extensive research and writing on the curative properties of oil of wild oregano, which earned him the moniker “Dr. Oregano” among patients, associates, and his legion of fans. Dr. Cass graduated from the Des Moines School of Osteopathic Medicine in 1984, finishing at the top of his class in osteopathic manipulation and holistic medicine. He studied under several of the top osteopathic physicians of the day before beginning an apprenticeship with Dr. Maur, founder of the renowned Maur Preventive Medical Center in Zion, Illinois. Dr. Maur took young Dr. Cass under his wing and taught him how to start and run a thriving preventive care medical center.In 1985, Dr. Cass started his first clinic in Hoffman Estates, Illinois. In 1986 he then opened the Arlington Preventive Medical Center in Arlington Heights, Illinois. Thousands of patients from all over the Midwest poured into the clinic. About this time, he started developing formulas for his own line of vitamins.From that point on, Dr. Cass worked tirelessly to provide natural products and knowledge of those products to the world through his books, lectures and many hundreds of media appearances. He leaves to us a vast library of knowledge in book and video format that informs us how to safely use wild edible plants from the earth to live a joyous, healthy life.Dr. Cass’s life's work will be cherished and he will be dearly missed by his three children; Surriah, Maryam and Ali Igram, as well as by his seven grandchildren; Jameela, Ayesha, Ibrahim, Muhammad, Yusuf, Maryam, and Maya, and by his five siblings; Hassan, Jamiely, Suehila, Abdullah, and Surria.This show is part of the Spreaker Prime Network, if you are interested in advertising on this podcast, contact us at https://www.spreaker.com/show/5948889/advertisement

EP # Those Not So Little Voices: From Adolescent Psychosis to Wellness and Empowerment with Wyatt Forte

Lisa is joined by Wyatt Forte who talks about his memoir, Those Not So Little Voices: From Adolescent Psychosis to Wellness and EmpowermentSummaryIn this conversation, Lisa Davis and Wyatt Forte discuss Wyatt's personal experience with mental illness, specifically hearing voices and dealing with paranoia. Wyatt shares his journey from the onset of his symptoms at a young age to his diagnosis and treatment. He discusses the impact of his parents' divorce and the fear and trauma associated with his experiences. Wyatt also provides tips for dealing with voices and hallucinations, emphasizing the importance of seeking professional help and finding coping mechanisms. In this conversation, Wyatt Forte discusses his book 'Those Not So Little Voices' and shares his experiences with mental illness. The conversation covers the importance of physical activity in managing mental health, the lack of resources for mental illness in children, strategies for avoiding arguments with someone experiencing mental illness, the importance of building a supportive community, the benefits of cognitive behavioral therapy, and grounding techniques for overwhelm and anxiety.TakeawaysMental illness can have a significant impact on relationships, causing stress and strain on both the individual and their loved ones.The onset of hearing voices can be sudden and terrifying, especially for a young child who may not understand what is happening.The fear of speaking out about mental illness and the stigma associated with it can prevent individuals from seeking help and support.The journey to a diagnosis and effective treatment for mental illness can be complex and may require trying different medications and therapies.The disappearance of voices and symptoms may bring mixed emotions, as individuals may struggle to define their identity without the presence of their illness.It is important to challenge stigmatizing beliefs and misconceptions about mental illness and to promote understanding and empathy. Physical activity can have significant benefits for mental health, even though it may initially seem unrelated to mental illness.There is a lack of resources and support for children with mental illness, particularly for disorders like schizophrenia that typically present later in life.When interacting with someone experiencing mental illness, it is important to avoid arguments and instead provide support and understanding.Building a community of understanding and supportive individuals is crucial for individuals with mental illness.Cognitive behavioral therapy can be helpful in managing mental illness and building skills for long-term well-being.Grounding techniques, such as focusing on reality and naming tangible things, can help manage overwhelm and anxiety.The book 'Those Not So Little Voices' by Wyatt Forte is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble's website.Chapters00:00Introduction and Personal Experience with Mental Illness01:29Impact of Mental Illness on Relationships02:44Onset of Hearing Voices and Fear04:01Discovering the Society and Threats05:43Fear of Speaking Out and Trauma06:27Alice in Wonderland Syndrome08:18The Society and Paranoia09:12Fear of Father's Involvement10:52Impact of Parents' Divorce11:54Diagnosis and Treatment Journey19:38Lying About Voices to Get Out of Hospital25:57Mixed Emotions After Voices Disappeared29:31Lack of Definitive Diagnosis36:07Tips for Dealing with Voices and Hallucinations37:53The Importance of Physical Activity39:23Lack of Resources for Mental Illness in Kids40:35Avoiding Arguments with Someone Experiencing Mental Illness43:30Building a Supportive Community45:18The Benefits of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy46:16Grounding Techniques for Overwhelm and Anxiety46:28Where to Find the BookThis show is part of the Spreaker Prime Network, if you are interested in advertising on this podcast, contact us at https://www.spreaker.com/show/5948889/advertisement

EP #1252: Tommy's Field: Love, Loss, and the Goal of a Lifetime with Nikki Mark

Lisa is joined by Nikki Mark who talks about her book, Tommy's Field: Love, Loss, and the Goal of a Lifetime. Book description:A moving memoir that reminds us of the power of play to inspire, unite, and heal—and that sometimes what brings us the most pain can be the source of our greatest inspiration.In April 2018, Nikki and Doug Mark’s perfectly healthy twelve-year-old-son, Tommy, went to sleep one night and never woke up. They’re still not exactly sure why. Devastated, Nikki embarked on an unconventional journey to create a legacy for Tommy and to heal her heart. She created a plan to transform neglected land in a Los Angeles public park into a state-of-the-art athletic field, honoring Tommy’s love of soccer and sharing his spirit of play with others.

EP #1248: Psychophysiologic Disorder (PPD) - The Trauma and Chronic Pain Connection with Dr. David Clarke

Most people assume that pain and illness are the straightforward result of injury and disease. However, one in six adults suffers from chronic pain or illness that is either “medically unexplained” or unresponsive to virtually any treatment. These patients often live with a psychophysiologic disorder (PPD), the increasingly common clinical term for very real stress-related and brain-generated medical conditions. Such chronic symptoms manifest themselves as everything from fibromyalgia to irritable bowel syndrome, and their incompatibility with conventional diagnosis leaves most PPD patients feeling neglected by the medical profession and hopeless about their future.Lisa is joined by Dr. David Clarke, the President of the Psychophysiologic Disorders Association (PPDA), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to ending the chronic pain epidemic. Dr. Clarke graduated from Williams College with a bachelor’s degree in psychology, and he holds an MD from the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. He is Board-certified in Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology. His organization’s mission is to advance the awareness, diagnosis, and treatment of stress-related and brain-generated medical conditions. The PPDA supports an evidence-based, biopsychosocial approach that is safer, more affordable, and more effective than traditional treatments of chronic pain. With a focus on uncovering stress and identifying trauma, the PPDA encourages patients to take control of their symptoms without drugs, surgery, or expensive treatments. Dr. Clarke is the organization’s president, a renowned gastroenterologist, author of three books, producer of three films, and an international lecturer on psychophysiologic disorders. Learn more at EndChronicPain.org.The Psychophysiologic Disorders Association (PPDA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to ending the chronic pain epidemic by promoting awareness of PPD diagnosis and treatment. Educating medical professionals is the first step in creating a healthcare system that is more compassionate toward PPD and more capable of serving every patient. In 2021, opioids accounted for over 80,000 of the drug overdose deaths reported in the United States. The opioid crisis is a plague on modern health care, and much of its strength originates from those patients unable to find understanding and relief — like those suffering from brain-generated symptoms.“It’s all about awareness,” says Dr. David Clarke, renowned gastroenterologist and president of PPDA. “The more people — both medical professionals and more members of the public — who know about psychophysiologic disorders and what makes them tick, the more we will see diagnosis and effective treatment on the rise.”The Psychophysiologic Disorders Association supports an evidence-based, biopsychosocial approach that is safer, more affordable, and more effective than traditional methods in treating chronic pain. With a focus on uncovering stress, trauma, and unrecognized emotion, patients are able to take control of their symptoms without drugs, surgery, or expensive treatments. What’s more, the organization is a leader and chief facilitator within the industry, supporting some of the most robust resources available for PPD patients and professionals:This show is part of the Spreaker Prime Network, if you are interested in advertising on this podcast, contact us at https://www.spreaker.com/show/5948889/advertisement

EP #1243: Gender Differences in Strength Training with Lee Boyce

Lisa is joined by Lee Boyce who talks about gender difference and strength training. In Lee's own words:I’ve done a lot of stuff in my career as a fitness professional. But I still use the same job description whenever I’m asked. I’m a trainer. I help people work out for results. And possessing that skill is what’s enabled me to land the opportunities I’ve achieved to this point.I don’t use fancy terms like “body transformation specialist” or “muscle mechanic”. I got to where I’m at by sticking to the basic tenets of my craft – and for me, that means never abandoning my number 1 pursuit: Fitness training and coaching clients. That’s the piece of the pie that puts a combination of my own fitness background, my school-based knowledge, and my time spent competing in varsity track, to good practice on a regular basis.And keeping my allegiance there has directly or indirectly paid dividends in the form of being able to educate other professionals, land some pretty high-profile clients, teach college students, and achieve all the accomplishments you’ll see littered throughout this website. I won’t repeat them all here.Instead, I’ll use this section to give you the lowdown on what to expect hanging around this place.REAL TRAINING. NO NONSENSE.Just like the slogan of this website implies, you won’t have to filter through fluff or off-topic material to get to the goods. This site is dedicated to delivering training information and advice for a large demographic of people. There’s strength training, fat loss, muscle development, and conditioning advice that ranges from beginner level content to advanced content for experienced trainees. You’ll find most of this variety by keeping abreast with the work I have published in different print magazines (I’m usually on newsstands for something every month) and digital publications. In addition to this, my “training tips” section will highlight nuggets of fitness advice (or good exercises to try) for your convenience. As a whole, it’s a lot of content – I know – but the site makes it fairly easy to navigate through and also keyword search just what you might be looking for.I use my blog section a bit differently than most fitness professionals. I don’t post too often, but when I do, you can count on a more editorial piece that highlights things I see in the fitness industry, and how they can affect the culture of fitness as a whole. Some of the subjects I choose to zero in on may open your eyes to a different perspective through a counter-intuitive lens.This show is part of the Spreaker Prime Network, if you are interested in advertising on this podcast, contact us at https://www.spreaker.com/show/5948889/advertisement

EP 1240: Extensive Testing on 21 of the Nation’s Most Popular Fast Food Brands Reveals Alarming Levels of Toxins & more with Zen Honeycut

Lisa is joined by Zen Honeycut, the Founding Executive Director of the non-profit, Moms Across America, a National Coalition of Unstoppable Moms with the motto "Empowered Moms, Healthy Kids." Moms Across America’s leaders created over 1,000 community events in all 50 states to raise awareness about GMOs, toxins in the food supply, and other environmental issues that pose risk to the health of our families. The organization’s mission is to educate and empower mothers and others with actions and solutions to create healthy communities. Zen Honeycutt and Moms Across America initiated the first glyphosate testing in America and successfully petitioned Costco to remove Roundup from their shelves. She is the author of UNSTOPPABLE, Transforming Sickness and Struggle into Triumph, Empowerment, and Celebration of Community, the director of a short film called “Communities Rising” and the co-founder of the recently launched program called “The Neighborhood Food Network” whose mission is to create a parallel food system, one street at a time.Extensive Testing on 21 of the Nation’s Most Popular Fast Food Brands Reveals Alarming Levels of Toxins and Limited Nutritional Value (Fast food brands are also suppliers for school lunches) Out of growing concern for skyrocketing levels of chronic illness, mental health issues, violence, behavior and learning disorders, and autism in American children, Moms Across America, a national educational nonprofit, has initiated a Fast Food Testing Program to test for potential toxins in one of our nation’s most iconic, go-to nutritional sources- the fast food restaurant. Fast food is consumed by eight-five million Americans each day. Furthermore, many chains are suppliers of school lunches, thirty million of which are served daily to children. For millions of under privileged children, these meals are their only access to a full meal. To further investigate the status of a major source of food and nutrition for children as well as adults in America, Moms Across America commissioned extensive testing on 21 of the country’s most popular fast food brands (The 21 brands include the top 20 highest grossing brands as rated by the QSR50, in addition to In-N-Out Burger, which is ranked #33). In all, forty-two samples of fast food meals gathered from 21 locations nationwide were tested by the Health Research Institute. All 21 brands were tested for the most widely used herbicide in the world, glyphosate, 203 agrochemicals, 160 heavy metals, PFAS, phthalates, and mineral content. The top ten brands were additionally tested for 106 commonly used veterinary drugs and hormones, Vitamin B’s and calories. Two types of samples- three to four meals of each type- from each of 21 locations across the United States were shipped to the Health Research Institute in their original packaging, untouched and frozen. At the invitation of the Senate Agriculture Committee, results of the Fast Food Testing Program were shared at a congressional briefing on food toxicity in school lunches this October 17 in Washington, DC.Moms Across America (MAA) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to educate and empower mothers and others with actions and solutions to create healthy communities. Their motto is “Empowered Moms, Healthy Kids”. The national coalition of mothers is dedicated to ensuring that the food we eat and feed our families is safe and healthy, with an emphasis on eliminating GMOs and glyphosate, the key ingredient in Roundup herbicide, from our food supply. A powerhouse activist organization, MAA reaches as many as more than four million followers on social media each month and millions in person with local events across the country. Among its many successes, the group is responsible for having initiated the first-ever glyphosate testing in tap water, urine, and breast milk in 2013. And it was their petition that convinced Costco to stop selling Roundup in their stores.This show is part of the Spreaker Prime Network, if you are interested in advertising on this podcast, contact us at https://www.spreaker.com/show/5948889/advertisement

SPECIAL HP EPISODE: I'm Dying to tell you... with Dr. Mark Goulston: Confronting his Mortality with Calm and Contentment

Lisa is joined by Dr. Mark Goulston who shares where he shares what mortality is teaching him. Be sure to watch his video series, I'm Dying to tell you... on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/@ImdyingtotellyoudrmarkDr. Mark Goulston is dying to tell you about what mortality is teaching him. He is a distinguished psychiatrist and death and dying specialist facing his own mortality and the universe is telling him to share what he's learned from 50 years of listening. He says that if he knew these things decades earlier, it would have changed his life for the better. Now you can learn them to change your life for the better... and you don't need to be dying to learn them. Dr. Goulston, Fearing death is a universal human experience, what are some of the ways you’ve been able to welcome it with tranquility and fulfillment. After receiving a challenging prognosis, with a 50 percent chance of survival even with the best of treatments, Dr. Goulston embarked on a journey of introspection, reflecting on the values that have guided his life and learning to embrace his own mortality with grace. Throughout his career, Dr. Goulston has worked with dying patients, guiding many to peace in the eleventh hour. Having been witness to so many deaths—the good and the not so good—he now feels an urgency to share these profound insights and wisdom on how we can all prepare for a good death, navigate life's challenges, and find inner Dr. Mark Goulston, MD, FAPA, is a board-certified psychiatrist, former UCLA professor of psychiatry, and author or coauthor of ten books translated into 43 languages, with 600,000+ copies in print and with his book Just Listen becoming the top book on listening in the world. He is also a death and dying specialist, having been mentored by Dr. Edwin Shneidman, a pioneer in the field, and having developed his lifesaving and mortality comforting empathic skills into an approach he calls, “Surgical Empathy,” through decades of working with suicidal patients and doing house calls to dying patients. He is the co-founder of the Deeper Coaching Institute, a division of On Global Leadership that works with clients who want to more deeply explore who they really are beyond conventional coaching. He hosts the highly ranked podcast My Wakeup Call and co-hosts the weekly radio show Hurt Less, Live More on UK Health Radio. He is also a former FBI and police hostage negotiation trainer. Check out his “I’m Dying to Tell You” series on Youtube and TikTok.The values that guided Dr. Goulston’s life, how he came to have no regrets, and how you can make sure to have a good death:● Listening. Dr. Goulston has made a career out of it and has written the top book in the world about it. Deep listening, he says, was his main tool in working with suicidal patients for 35+ years, during which time none of them died by suicide. The main trick was not just to merely listen to something or someone, but to focus on what they were listening for. Nonjudgmentally search out that thing that is always lingering beneath and deeper below the surface and people will spontaneously open up.● Generosity. More than ever, we live in a society that values self over others. But in society’s constant pursuit of material acquisition, Dr. Goulston finds that generosity has made his life richer and causes him to come from abundance rather than scarcity.● Service. Through one life, thousands can be affected. Because of his deeply listening to suicidal patients, dying patients on house calls, and growing his own family, Dr. Goulston forged a career and personal life that not only elevated others, but was instrumental in his own life’s mission.● Curiosity. We learn new things every day, but it’s a childlike curiosity that keeps us hungering for knowledge. Get excited about learning new things and see where continually asking why? takes you and may help you to rediscover the joy of wonder you had as a child.● Getting stuff done. If you’re not moving forward, you’re going to get caught spinning your wheels. These bouts of stagnation are often associated with periods of depression—at least that was how it was for Dr. Goulston—but if you want your life to continue being full of determination, enthusiasm, and fulfillment, then you need to be the force that drives it forward.● Personal responsibility. When we’re sick or struggling, victimhood is a seductive trap, because in your mind, it lets you off the hook by blaming your problem on others or at least making it their responsibility to fix. Taking personal responsibility prevents and furthermore earns you respect from others and yourself.This show is part of the Spreaker Prime Network, if you are interested in advertising on this podcast, contact us at https://www.spreaker.com/show/5948889/advertisement

IN MEMORY OF SUZANNE SOMERS - Re-play of "A New Way To Age" with Suzanne Somers

Suzanne Somers meant so much to me and Andrea. For the next three Wednesdays (10/18, 10/25 and 11/1) I will be posting interviews we've done with the fantastic Suzanne Somers. She was a gem and will always be in our hearts.Book Description: A New Way To Age: The Most Cutting-Edge Advances in Antiaging#1 New York Times bestselling author and health guru Suzanne Somers established herself as a leading voice on antiaging. With A New Way to Age, she “is at the forefront again, bringing seminal information to people, written in a way that all can understand” (Ray Kurzweil, author of How to Create a Mind) with this revolutionary philosophy for a longer and better-quality life that will make you feel like you’ve just had the best checkup ever.There is a new way to age. I’m doing it and it’s the best decision I’ve ever made. I love this stage of my life: I have ‘juice,’ joy, wisdom, and perspective; I have energy, vitality, clearheadedness, and strong bones.Most of us are far too comfortable with the present paradigm of aging, which normalizes pills, nursing homes, and “the big three”: heart disease, cancer, and Alzheimer’s disease. But you don’t have to accept this fate. Now there’s a new way to grow older—with vibrancy, freedom, confidence, and a rockin’ libido. This health bible from Suzanne Somers will explain how to stop aging like your parents and embrace cutting-edge techniques such as: balancing nutritional and mineral deficiencies; detoxifying your gut for weight loss; pain management with non-THC cannabis instead of harmful opioids; and much more.Aging well is mainly about the choices you make on a daily basis. It can be a fantastic process if you approach it wisely. After a lifetime of research, Suzanne came to a simple conclusion: what you lose in the aging process must be replaced with natural alternatives. In order to thrive you have to rid your body of chemicals and toxins. Start aging the new way today by joining Suzanne and her trailblazing doctors as they all but unearth the fountain of youth.This show is part of the Spreaker Prime Network, if you are interested in advertising on this podcast, contact us at https://www.spreaker.com/show/5948889/advertisement

Widen the Window: Training Your Brain and Body to Thrive During Stress and Recover from Trauma with Elizabeth Stanley, PhD.

Lisa is joined by Elizabeth Stanley who talks about her book, Widen the Window: Training Your Brain and Body to Thrive During Stress and Recover from TraumaElizabeth Stanley, PhD in her own words:I’m a professor at Georgetown University who teaches about international security. My passion is understanding the social structures that drive human behavior—especially during stress, trauma, uncertainty, and conflict.This has led me to teach, speak, and write about a wide range of topics:Why are wars so difficult to end?Why does technology often exacerbate uncertainty?Why do features of the post-9/11 military make suicide and psychological injury more likely?Why do some of our society’s most common coping habits undermine our resilience?Integrating insights from many different fields, I explore how we can change social structures to create better outcomes. I help people learn how to access choice, even during the most challenging situations.I used to be a firm believer in “powering through.” A U.S. Army veteran with a PTSD diagnosis who thought it would be cool to pursue two graduate degrees simultaneously, I was a pro at it—or so I thought.It took losing my eyesight for me to finally understand that there’s an easier way.I’ve spent 20 years studying the neurobiology of stress, trauma, and resilience—initially as a way to save myself and then to help others heal, too. There’s nothing I teach that I haven’t learned from personally in my own mind and body.Along the way, I developed an evidence-based approach to resilience called Mindfulness-based Mind Fitness Training (MMFT)®. I collaborated with neuroscientists and stress researchers to test MMFT’s efficacy in four research studies. I’ve taught these tools to thousands in high-stress environments, including first-responders, healthcare workers, corporate leaders, and combat troops.Growing up as an Army brat, I moved ten times before college, mostly overseas. After an ROTC scholarship at Yale, I served as a U.S. Army intelligence officer in Asia, Europe, and on two Balkans deployments. A Harvard-trained political scientist, I also have an MBA from MIT’s Sloan School, focused on technology strategy and organizational behavior. After several years of clinical training, I became a certified practitioner of Somatic Experiencing, a body-based trauma therapy. I’ve also ordained as a Buddhist nun in Burma.In addition to longtime yoga and awareness practices, I enjoy running, hiking, gardening, creating art, and spending time in nature with my rescue dog, Chloe. We love to commune with the animals and host friends at a Virginia farm, featured in photos on this website.Book description:Stress is our internal response to an experience that our brain perceives as threatening or challenging. Trauma is our response to an experience in which we feel powerless or lacking agency. Until now, researchers have treated these conditions as different, but they actually lie along a continuum. Dr. Elizabeth Stanley explains the significance of this continuum, how it affects our resilience in the face of challenge, and why an event that's stressful for one person can be traumatizing for another.This groundbreaking book examines the cultural norms that impede resilience in America, especially our collective tendency to disconnect stress from its potentially extreme consequences and override our need to recover. It explains the science of how to direct our attention to perform under stress and recover from trauma. With training, we can access agency, even in extreme-stress environments. In fact, any maladaptive behavior or response conditioned through stress or trauma can, with intentionality and understanding, be reconditioned and healed. The key is to use strategies that access not just the thinking brain but also the survival brain. By directing our attention in particular ways, we can widen the window within which our thinking brain and survival brain work together cooperatively. When we use awareness to regulate our biology this way, we can access our best, uniquely human qualities: our compassion, courage, curiosity, creativity, and connection with others. By building our resilience, we can train ourselves to make wise decisions and access choice--even during times of incredible stress, uncertainty, and change.With stories from men and women Dr. Stanley has trained in settings as varied as military bases, healthcare facilities, and Capitol Hill, as well as her own striking experiences with stress and trauma, she gives readers hands-on strategies they can use themselves, whether they want to perform under pressure or heal from traumatic experience, while at the same time pointing our understanding in a new direction.This show is part of the Spreaker Prime Network, if you are interested in advertising on this podcast, contact us at https://www.spreaker.com/show/5948889/advertisement

Prioritize Brain Health to Reduce the Risk of Alzheimer's Disease with Lakelyn Eichenberger, PH.D

Lisa is joined by Lakelyn Eichenberger, Ph.D. to talk about the simple steps even the busiest caregivers can incorporate to prioritize themselves. Dr. EIchenbarger has dedicated her career to educating professionals, families and communities on how to navigate the unique challenges older adults and family caregivers face. She is a seasoned public speaker and expert on aging issues, appearing on conference stages such as Aging in America and Meals on Wheels, and programming such as Dr. Oz, Dr. Phil and the Hallmark Channel’s Home and Family Show.Home Instead shares tips for prioritizing one's well-being during World Alzheimer's MonthOMAHA, Neb., Sept. 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- As the number of Americans living with Alzheimer's continues to rise – now exceeding 6 million Americans – the dedicated caregivers supporting these older adults find themselves confronted with challenges such as managing high stress levels, dealing with sleep deprivation and struggling to find time for self-care. Unfortunately for caregivers, these factors are known to contribute to the development of the disease, putting them at greater risk.Eighty percent of Alzheimer's care is provided in the home, not a facility, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). As the leading provider of in-home care for older adults, Home Instead® recognizes the vital role caregivers have in the lives of individuals affected by Alzheimer's. Beyond providing care to those with the disease, it's important to protect the well-being of Alzheimer's caregivers themselves."Among the most common concerns our Care Professionals hear from family caregivers is that they don't want their own children to become family caregivers," said Lakelyn Hogan Eichenberger, Ph.D., gerontologist and caregiving advocate at Home Instead. "Alzheimer's is a difficult disease to live with for everyone involved. Carving time for self-care might feel selfish, but it's the most productive action you can take to keep your future self healthy."On Thursday, Sept. 21, at 12:00PM CDT, Home Instead is hosting a virtual brain health workshop for family caregivers to learn more about how maintaining a healthy brain can positively impact your memory and help reduce the risk of Alzheimer's. Registration is free, click here to RSVP.During World Alzheimer's Month, Home Instead is calling attention to the connection between healthy habits and brain health and encouraging caregivers to prioritize their needs. Growing evidence suggests that people can reduce their risk of cognitive decline by adopting key lifestyle changes. But major changes can feel overwhelming to those caring for loved ones. Here are suggestions for simple steps even the busiest caregivers can incorporate to prioritize themselves:Exercise to promote cardiovascular health. Those who exercise have a lower risk of developing cognitive decline. Even 30 minutes of movement can make a difference. Activities like walking, swimming and light jogging boost heart rate and preserve mental function.Eat right to fuel the brain. Choose lean meats and olive oil-enriched foods to enhance brain health, mood and memory. Reducing red meat and saturated fats can alleviate brain fog, sluggishness and exhaustion.Sleep and relax. Sleep detoxes the brain and promotes tissue healing. Experts recommend between seven and nine hours of sleep a night to promote optimal health. Trouble sleeping? Consider trying an eye mask or sleeping app.Maintain social connections. Studies have shown those with the most social interaction within their community experience the slowest rate of memory decline. Regular social interaction, such as a phone call with a friend, can slow memory decline, particularly if you live alone.Engage your brain. People who continue to learn, embrace new activities, and develop new skills are building and improving the networks in their brain. Stay curious and engage in brain games like crosswords, puzzles, bingo or phone apps to keep your mind active.Take a positive approach to stress management. Chronic stress can harm the brain, affecting memory and mood regulation. Focus on the present, embrace natural events and think positively to reduce stress. Practice deep breathing and positive mantras multiple times a day to help you reset.This show is part of the Spreaker Prime Network, if you are interested in advertising on this podcast, contact us at https://www.spreaker.com/show/5948889/advertisement

Find out what AUTHORS, RESCUES & MORE are coming up on BULLY GIRL MAGAZINE PODCAST!

Hi! Lisa here! Go subscirbe to now to BULLY GIRL MAGAZINE PODCAST so you don't miss the dog-eared interviews you love!Here is what's coming up on BULLY GIRL MAGAZINE PODCAST:The fabulous Cat Warren author of What the Dog Knows: The Science and Wonder of Working Dogs Cat Warren is a university professor and former journalist with an admittedly odd hobby: She and her German shepherd have spent the last seven years searching for the dead. Solo is a cadaver dog. What started as a way to harness Solo’s unruly energy and enthusiasm soon became a calling that introduced Warren to the hidden and fascinating universe of working dogs, their handlers, and their trainers. Solo has a fine nose and knows how to use it, but he’s only one of many thousands of working dogs all over the United States and beyond. In What the Dog Knows, Warren uses her ongoing work with Solo as a way to explore a captivating field that includes cadaver dogs, drug and bomb-detecting K9s, tracking and apprehension dogs - even dogs who can locate unmarked graves of Civil War soldiers and help find drowning victims more than two hundred feet below the surface of a lake. Working dogs’ abilities may seem magical or mysterious, but Warren shows the multifaceted science, the rigorous training, and the skilled handling that underlie the amazing abilities of dogs who work with their noses. Aaron Michael Lewis shares wisdom, love, and insight on his instagram page, @sweet_gigi02 Here is one of his beautiful posts: "I think people often forget animals deal with emotions too. It sometimes goes deeper because they are trusting of a human to be their guide through those emotions. I see a lot of people claim their pet has helped their mental health but my question is were you there for theirs? They are there through every storm but don’t forgot about their storms. Trust me I know when something is off with GiGi. My effort is there to figure out what it is. And my patience is there to wait for her to let me know what it is. Humans often setup boundaries but push past animals’ boundaries. Pay attention to the body language. Don’t disrespect their space and expect them to not react. It’s time to take accountability for own actions or lack there of. It’s everyday action. Not sometimes when I feel like it."We have a deep meaningful conversation about Gigi and dogs in general. It's a conversaition you don't want to miss!The fanastic Ken Foster author of I'm a Good Dog: Pit Bulls, America’s Most Beautiful (and Misunderstood) Pet.Book description: Perhaps more than any other breed, the pit bull has been dogged by negative stereotypes. In truth, pit bulls are innately wonderful family pets, as capable of love and good deeds as any other type of dog. Setting the record straight, Ken Foster sings the praises of pit bulls in I’m a Good Dog, a gorgeously illustrated, tenderly written tribute to this most misunderstood of canines.Founder of the Sula Foundation, which promotes responsible pit bull ownership in New Orleans, and the author of two acclaimed books about abandoned dogs, Foster has made it his mission to bring overlooked canines into the limelight. I’m a Good Dog traces the fascinating history of this particularly maligned breed. A century ago, the pit bull was considered a family dog, featured in family photos and trusted as loving companions for children. More recently, pit bulls have been portrayed by the media as stereotypes of everything they are not. Foster shatters that reputation through moving profiles of pit bulls that serve as therapy dogs, athletic heroes, search-and-rescue dogs, and educators, not to mention as loving pets. Author Jen Goldbeck author of The Purest Bond: Understanding the Human–Canine Connection. Book description: Weaving together groundbreaking research and touching real-life stories, The Purest Bondexplores not just the social benefits of owning a dog but the science of how dogs improve our emotional and physical health, mental acuity, and our ability to focus and absorb information. Most importantly, they remind us of what’s right in the world—love, trust, affection, playtime, fresh air, and sunshine—even when so much feels wrong.Monica from Brave Bully Rescue Brave Bully Rescue is a 501(3) non-profit , foster-based Pit Bull Rescue in Houston, Texas.We are a rescue group comprised of members who love bully breeds and have made the choice to educate and advocate for this misunderstood breed.We will fight for their lives and show the world this magnificent breed that has been tarnished by dog fighters, criminals and negative media. Brave Bully Rescue began when the founders discovered three Pit bull puppies that were dumped in their neighborhood. They reached out to a few Houston shelters and learned that they would be euthanized. So they decided to network on Facebook, asking for help from local rescues. They realized how bad the overpopulation of Pit Bulls and strays consumed in Houston, Texas. Rescues were full and the amount of bully breed rescues in Houston was limited. So they took to the internet in order to network and share Pit Bulls who were on death row in high-kill shelters.Eric and Monica Febles started organizing the rescue and finding others that shared their passion for the breed.Brave Bully Rescue began on March 14, 2014 and has saved over 300 lives to date. Their goal is to instill a positive presence of advocacy for responsible bully breed ownership and to find their adoptable bullies a loving forever home. Carol Novello from Mutual Rescue Mutual Rescue has motivated innumerable people worldwide to embark on their own mutual rescue journeys.It has created 14 documentary films and a series of short thematic films called Mutual Rescue Moments; published a popular book; established replicable programs like Doggy Day Out; directed $180,000 in unrestricted cash grants to animal shelters throughout the U.S.; inspired greater philanthropic giving to animal-welfare causes; and encouraged individuals and businesses to support their community animal shelters through adopting, fostering, volunteering, and donating.This show is part of the Spreaker Prime Network, if you are interested in advertising on this podcast, contact us at https://www.spreaker.com/show/5948889/advertisement

EP #1231: "Fat: A Documentary" with Vinnie Tortorich

Lisa is joined by Vinnie Tortorich, to talk about Fat: A Documentary. In the documentaty, health expert Vinnie Tortorich exposes the history behind myths and lies regarding healthy eating, fat and weight loss.From www.vinnietortorich.comMy name is Vinnie Tortorich, Celebrity Fitness Trainer, speaker, podcaster and best-selling author of Fitness Confidential: Adventures in the Weight-Loss Game.Some call me “America’s ANGRIEST Trainer”. Why am I so angry? Because your good intentions have been stolen! You have been duped! Yes, despite all your good honest efforts you just keep gaining weight and feeling worse.Does this sound familiar? ‘No matter how much I exercise and how ‘healthily” I eat, I can’t seem to keep the weight off or my cholesterol’s too high or my arthritis/allergies are giving me trouble or my knees/back hurts or I have sleep apnea….” I hear this over and over again and I KNOW it doesn’t have to be this way. There is a solution, they just don’t want you to know it. That, ladies & gentlemen, is why I’m angry.I’ve been a personal trainer to people from all walks of life for thirty years. I’ve trained Hollywood celebrities, captains of industry, stay at home moms, working moms, pregnant moms, ultra athletes, Ironman triathletes, injured and post surgical clients and even children with the beginnings of a weight problem.I love my work and I live to see my clients enjoying the benefits of my training and the feelings of well being that fitness gives them, they are all thriving. But hey, not everyone is lucky enough to have me breathing down their neck, yelling “Step away from the pizza!”. As I look around me and see the American people getting fatter and sicker instead of fitter and healthier, I wonder what messages they are getting about fitness and nutrition and where those messages are coming from.For decades, the diet industry (and they are not the only bad guys here) has been selling you lies about how to lose weight and get fit. They get you thin fast while simultaneously setting you up for failure just so you can come crawling back to them in a few months. Let’s face it, they can’t make money if you stay thin and fit! Looking at the growing epidemic of obesity and other weight related diseases and the health and financial costs of that epidemic to our country, I am shocked to see that the message comes directly from the government, the special interest groups, the health care system and pharmaceutical industry, the very people who are supposed to help and guide us.It would seem they are motivated by one thing and one thing only – MONEY. There are several excellent documentaries on the subject and you can watch any of those documentaries on TV or Netflix whenever you choose. I am thankful that those documentaries exist and grateful to the people that made them, but, whilst they bring our attention to the roots of the issue, they don’t solve the problem. And that’s where I come in.I’m going to tell you, for fun and for free, what you SHOULD be doing, what they (the bad guys) are not telling you. You don’t have to buy any gadgets, powders or pills. You don’t have to sign up for anything or become a member of any group. You won’t be starving or feel deprived. It’s really pretty simple and you can start right now……Here’s a link to my free podcasts on iTunes where you can hear how it’s done and have a good time doing it.This show is part of the Spreaker Prime Network, if you are interested in advertising on this podcast, contact us at https://www.spreaker.com/show/5948889/advertisement

DOG-EARED with Lisa Davis EP# 41: LeVar Carter, Founder of "Bully Girl Magazine."

Lisa is joined by LeVar Carter who talks about Bully Girl Magazine. LeVar D. Carter, a native of Roosevelt, Long Island in New York, developed a deep-rooted love for pit bulls and bully breeds early in his life. Growing up in a small town, LeVar's fascination with these dogs grew as he raised a few pit bulls, forming strong bonds with each one. His life took an unexpected turn when he came across the American Bully breed online. Intrigued by the breed's muscular and attractive appearance, LeVar set out to learn more about these incredible dogs.After months of research, LeVar found a trusted breeder, Jonathan Santos of New England Gottiline, located in Dartmouth, Massachusetts. He purchased his first American Bully from Jonathan, who also introduced him to Gottiline Magazine, a publication dedicated to the new breed. As LeVar attended several bully breed dog shows, he not only participated but also won some competitions. LeVar even hosted two huge bully breed dog shows early on, which helped to strengthen his connection within the bully breed community.One fateful day, LeVar discovered that Gottiline Magazine had gone out of business. Seeing a gap in the market and sensing the potential for a dedicated publication, LeVar decided to launch his own magazine. And thus, Bully Girl Magazine, LLC, was born—a publication that would bring awareness to the American Bully breed and help to educate people on how these dogs were not bad like the stereotypes suggested.LeVar faced numerous challenges during the initial stages of starting the magazine. With no background in photography, magazine publishing, or clothing design, he had to learn these skills on the fly. Undeterred, he took various online courses to fill the knowledge gaps, learning about photography, graphic design, business, and marketing. LeVar also faced the challenge of protecting his brand from others who sought to steal the idea. Through determination and quick action, he successfully trademarked the Bully Girl brand and continued his vision.With the increased demand for Bully Girl Magazine and its merchandise, LeVar launched the Bully Girl Mobile App, allowing users to locate and connect with responsible breeders worldwide and access digital issues of the magazine. This innovative addition to the brand made it easier for bully breed enthusiasts to find reliable breeders and stay informed about important events and promotions.Today, Bully Girl Magazine stands as a testament to LeVar's passion for bully breeds and his determination to make a difference in the lives of these incredible dogs and their devoted owners. Through tireless effort and unwavering commitment, LeVar Carter has built a legacy that will continue to impact the bully breed community for years to come. The magazine's journey from humble beginnings to a respected, comprehensive publication highlights the power of dedication and belief in a cause. LeVar's story serves as an inspiration for others looking to follow their passion and create something meaningful.As Bully Girl Magazine continues to grow, LeVar has never lost sight of his original mission—to bring love and awareness to the bully breed. He tirelessly works to dispel the negative stereotypes surrounding these dogs, helping to change public perception and improve the lives of countless bully breeds and their owners.This show is part of the Spreaker Prime Network, if you are interested in advertising on this podcast, contact us at https://www.spreaker.com/show/5948889/advertisement

EP #1227: Exercise is Medicine: How Physical Activity Boosts Health and Slows Aging with Judy Foreman

Lisa is joined by Judy Foreman who talks about her book, Exercise is Medicine: How Physical Activity Boosts Health and Slows Aging. Judy Foreman is a nationally syndicated health columnist who has won more than 50 journalism awards and whose columns have appeared regularly in theBoston Globe, Los Angeles Times, Dallas Morning News, Baltimore Sun, and other national and international outlets. She graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Wellesley College, served in the Peace Corps in Brazil for three years, and received a Master's degree from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. From 2000 to 2001, she was a Fellow in Medical Ethics at Harvard Medical School. She has been a Lecturer on Medicine at Harvard Medical School, a Knight Science Journalism Fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and a Senior Fellow at the Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism at Brandeis University. She has also been the host of a weekly, call-in radio show on Healthtalk.com. She has won more than 50 journalism awards, including a George Foster Peabody award for co-writing a video documentary about a young woman dying ofbreast cancer, and she is author of A Nation in Pain: Healing our Biggest Health Problem (Oxford, 2014) and The Global Pain Crisis: What Everyone Needs to Know (Oxford, 2017).Aging, despite its dismal reputation, is actually one of the great mysteries of the universe. Why don't we just reproduce, then exit fast, like salmon? Could aging just be one big evolutionary accident? Is senescence, the gradual falling apart of our bodies, at least partially avoidable? Can we extend the healthy lifespan and reduce the lingering, debilitating effects of senescence? In this book, investigative health journalist Judy Foreman suggests that we actually can, and the key element is exercise, through its myriad effects on dozens of molecules in the brain, the muscles, and other organs. It's no secret, of course, that exercise is good for you and that exercise can extend longevity. What Foreman uncovers through extensive research into evolutionary biology, exercise physiology, and the new field of geroscience is exactly why exercise is so powerful - the mechanisms now being discovered that account for the vast and varied effects of exercise all over the body. Though Foreman also delves into pills designed to combat aging and so-called exercise "mimetics," or pills that purport to produce the effects of exercise without the sweat, her resounding conclusion is that exercise itself is by far the most effective, and safest, strategy for promoting a long, healthy life. In addition to providing a fascinating look at the science of exercise's effects on thebody, Foreman also provides answers to the most commonly asked practical questions about exercise.

DOG-EARED with Lisa Davis EP #40: BOOK: Craig & Fred: A Marine, A Stray Dog, and How They Rescued Each Other AUTHOR: Craig Grossi

Lisa is joined by Craig Grossi, the author of  Craig & Fred: A Marine, A Stray Dog, and How They Rescued Each Other.Raised in the Virginia suburbs of Washington, DC, Craig Grossi is a Marine Corps veteran, recipient of the Purple Heart and Georgetown University graduate. When not travelling with Fred, he devotes his time to veteran organizations including the USA Warriors Ice Hockey Program and other nonprofits that benefit dogs and veterans. He now lives in Maine with his partner Nora, and their dogs Fred and Ruby.In 2010, Sergeant Craig Grossi was doing intelligence work for Marine RECON—the most elite fighters in the Corps—in a remote part of Afghanistan. While on patrol, he spotted a young dog "with a big goofy head and little legs" who didn’t seem vicious or run in a pack like most strays they’d encountered. After eating a piece of beef jerky Craig offered—against military regulations—the dog began to follow him. "Looks like you made a friend," another Marine yelled. Grossi heard, "Looks like a 'Fred.'" The name stuck, and a beautiful, life-changing friendship was forged.Fred not only stole Craig’s heart; he won over the RECON fighters, who helped Craig smuggle the dog into heavily fortified Camp Leatherneck in a duffel bag—risking jail and Fred’s life. With the help of a crew of DHL workers, a sympathetic vet, and a military dog handler, Fred eventually made it to Craig’s family in Virginia. Months later, when Craig returned to the U.S., it was Fred’s turn to save the wounded Marine from Post-Traumatic Stress. Today, Craig and Fred are touching lives nationwide, from a swampy campground in a Louisiana State Park to the streets of Portland, Oregon, and everywhere in between. A poignant and inspiring tale of hope, resilience, and optimism, with a timeless message at its heart—"it is not what happens to us that matters, but how we respond to it"—Craig & Fred is a shining example of the power of love to transform our hearts and our lives.

DOG-EARED with Lisa Davis EP #39: BOOK: "How Stella Learned to Talk: The Groundbreaking Story of the World's First Talking Dog." AUTHOR: Christina Hunger

Lisa is joined by Christina Hunger to talk about. her book, How Stella Learned to Talk: The Groundbreaking Story of the World's First Talking Dog.  Christina Hunger, MA, CCC-SLP, is a speech-language pathologist and the first person to teach a dog to "talk" using augmentative communication. She is the founder of Hunger for Words, a movement dedicated to giving everyone who understands language the tools to communication. Hunger has a graduate degree in speech-language pathology from Northern Illinois University. She has professional expertise in using Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) to teach children with speech and language disorders to talk using communication devices. She lives with her husband, Jake, and of course her dog, Stella.BOOK DESCRIPTION:INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERAn incredible, revolutionary true story and surprisingly simple guide to teaching your dog to talk from speech-language pathologist Christina Hunger, who has taught her dog, Stella, to communicate using simple paw-sized buttons associated with different words.When speech-language pathologist Christina Hunger first came home with her puppy, Stella, it didn’t take long for her to start drawing connections between her job and her new pet. During the day, she worked with toddlers with significant delays in language development and used Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) devices to help them communicate. At night, she wondered: If dogs can understand words we say to them, shouldn’t they be able to say words to us? Can dogs use AAC to communicate with humans?Christina decided to put her theory to the test with Stella and started using a paw-sized button programmed with her voice to say the word “outside” when clicked, whenever she took Stella out of the house. A few years later, Stella now has a bank of more than thirty word buttons, and uses them daily either individually or together to create near-complete sentences.How Stella Learned to Talk is part memoir and part how-to guide. It chronicles the journey Christina and Stella have taken together, from the day they met, to the day Stella “spoke” her first word, and the other breakthroughs they’ve had since. It also reveals the techniques Christina used to teach Stella, broken down into simple stages and actionable steps any dog owner can use to start communicating with their pets.Filled with conversations that Stella and Christina have had, as well as the attention to developmental detail that only a speech-language pathologist could know, How Stella Learned to Talk will be the indispensable dog book for the new decade.

It was awarded the 2019 Royal Society of Literature Giles St. Aubyn Judge's Special Commendation for work in progress. BOOK DESCRIPTION:A compelling account of surviving a freak accident, and a fascinating exploration of the science of trauma and recovery.    Late one night, while Rebecca Fogg was alone in her apartment, her hand was partially amputated in an explosion. Quick thinking saved her life, but the journey to recovery would be a slow one. As the doctors rebuilt her hand, Rebecca (who also survived 9/11) began rebuilding her sense of self by studying the physical and psychological process of recovery.   Interspersing the personal with the medical, Rebecca charts her year of rehabilitation, touching on the marvelously adaptable anatomy of the hand; how the brain’s fight-or-flight mechanism enables us to react instantly to danger; and why trauma causes some people to develop PTSD and gives others a whole new lease on life.   Told with emotional and intellectual clarity, Beautiful Trauma is a celebration of the resilience of the human spirit and the wonder of the human hand.

Just as Jean enrolled Bella in certified therapy-dog classes, she lost her job at the age of sixty-five. This new work, visiting hospital patients with her therapy job, gave Jean hope and a new purpose in life.After moving to Connecticut, Bella’s work expanded to nursing homes and elementary schools, as well as local hospitals and cancer centers. She met an Alzheimer’s patient who learned to smile again after Bella took a treat from her hand. She also befriended a six-year-old boy with autism (who previously held a deep fear of dogs) along with a disabled hospital patient who was withdrawn and uncommunicative until Bella jumped into the bed with him and coaxed him to open up again.Jean and Bella’s journey into the world of therapy-dog work gave them a bright, new outlook—and has helped countless others overcome their own struggles—while proving to all that broken souls can, indeed, be healed.Joy Unleashed is a must-read for anyone who appreciates the true power of the human-canine bond.

 Lisa is joined by Andrew E. Budson and Dr. Elizabeth Kensinger who talk about their book, Why We Forget and How To Remember Better: The Science Behind Memory .Many of us wonder how we can best overcome one of the human experience’s most frustrating phenomena: forgetting. Why do we forget things we want to remember, and remember things we’d rather forget? How can we be certain about something we remember—and somehow be wrong about it? Why is it so difficult to remember people's names? How can you study hard for an exam but not be able to recall the material on the test? In WHY WE FORGET, Dr. Andrew Budson and Dr. Elizabeth Kensinger address these questions and more, using their years of experience to guide readers into better memory.Written by two experts with years of clinical and research-based experience, Andrew E.

Kensinger is a Full Professor and Chairperson of the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at Boston College. WHY WE FORGET addresses many of the long-debated questions in neuroscience that may have different answers than expected.

EP #1216: STELLATE GANGLION BLOCK (aka "The Magic Shot") for PTSD, Anxiety, Depression

Lisa is joined by Eugene Lipov and Jamie Mustard, the authors of The Invisible Machine: The Startling Truth About Trauma and the Scientific Breakthrough That Can Transform Your Life.  Lisa here.  I have done thousands and thousands of interviews in my 25 year career in television, radio and podcasting in the health realm and THIS BOOK and the TREATMENT it offers for POST TRAUMATIC STRESS INJURY (injury is more accurate than disorder) is mind blowing.    If you know ANYONE with the following issues, please have them listen to this interview:   PTSI (also known as PTSD) Anxiety Depression Trouble Sleeping Stress Impulsivity Sexual Dysfunction Suicidal Ideation Issues Concentrating Hypervigilance  Substance Abuse Numbness   Book description.  The world has long misunderstood trauma. Now, leading experts in the field have a radical new understanding of post-traumatic stress . . . and a surprising new treatment to reverse it could have profound implications for medicine, mental health, and society.  Despite its prevalence, post-traumatic stress, PTSD, is often seen as an unbeatable lifelong mental disorder. However, top trauma doctors and neuroscientists now understand that the result of trauma is not a disorder, but rather a physical injury—and while invisible to the naked eye, the posttraumatic stress injury (PTSI) can now be seen on a scan. Most importantly, the effects of PTSI are reversible.  Meet Dr. Eugene Lipov. His research and partnerships have led to an amazing discovery that all trauma has at its root a single piece of human hardware: the sympathetic nervous system, controlling the fight-or-flight response. Anyone who has endured trauma, including long-term microdoses of emotional stress, can have this injury. Dr. Lipov has pioneered a safe, 15-minute procedure that reverses the injury, relieving mild to extreme symptoms of PTSI—irritability, hypervigilance, anxiety, insomnia, and more—for survivors to combat soldiers to the everyday person.   Weaving hard science with moving human stories, The Invisible Machine reveals how this treatment was developed. It also tells the incredible story of the unlikely team, including the doctor, an artist, Special Forces leadership, and a sheriff, who are working together to change our understanding of post-traumatic stress and why it matters to society.  Coauthored by artist and innovator Jamie Mustard and in collaboration with writer Holly Lorincz, The Invisible Machine weaves hard science with moving stories of warriors, prisoners, and ordinary people to provide a stark new understanding of the human condition. The implications for a better, pain-free world are astounding—and that world could be nearer than we think.

Go to https://oneearthbodycare.com/A regular listener Ray brought to my attention that Cara's sound was much lower than mine.  I have no idea how that happened.  I put together every show and I must have hit something just before bouncing the file.  Anyway, I evened out the sound and it's a MUST LISTEN.  Cara is phenomenal and so is her book!Lisa is joined by Cara Sue Achterberg who talks with Lisa about her book, "Another Good Dog: Our Family and Fifty Foster Dogs." Cara shares her experience fostering fifty dogs and in this interview you will get to hear about quite a few of them.  In addition Cara's book and this interview touches on mothering older children who don't need you quite as much and the challenges that comes with that. Cara Achterberg is the author of seven books, a creative writing teacher, and a shelter dog advocate. Her memoir, Another Good Dog: One Family and Fifty Foster Dogs was a People magazine ‘people’s pick’ and featured on the Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family Show. Her book, One Hundred Dogs & Counting: One Woman, Ten Thousand Miles, and a Journey Into the Heart of Shelters and Rescues led to Cara cofound Who Will Let the Dogs Out, a nonprofit initiative to raise awareness and resources for shelter dogs. Cara lives in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia with her husband, three rescue dogs, and a rotating cast of foster dogs and cats. For more information visit CaraWrites.com.BOOK DESCRIPTION:  In 2015, Cara Achterberg’s Pennsylvania farm became a haven for Operation Paws for Homes, which rescues dogs from high-kill shelters in the rural south and shuttles them north to foster homes. Nine puppies arrived with less than a day’s notice; a heart-worm positive dog; a deeply traumatized stray pup from Iraq; and countless others who just needed a gentle touch and a warm place to sleep. The stories of these remarkable dogs—including an eighty-pound bloodhound who sang arias for the neighbors—and the joy they bring to Cara and her family (along with a few chewed sofa cushions) fill the pages of this touching and inspiring book.When asked how she can possibly say goodbye to that many lovable pups, Cara says, “If I don’t give this one away, I can’t possibly save another.” Filled with humanity and hope, Another Good Dog will take the reader on a journey of smiles, laughs, and tears—and lead us to wonder how many other good dogs are out there and what we can do to help.

She enjoys walking her dogs, eating chocolate, reading, writing, and horseback riding.Her website is www.karenfinedvm.com.BOOK DESCRIPTIONKaren Fine always knew that she wanted to be a vet and wasn't going to let anything stop her: not her allergy to cats, and not the fact that in the '80s veterinary medicine was still a mostly male profession. Inspired by her grandfather, a compassionate doctor who paid house calls to all his (human) patients, Dr. Fine persevered, and brought her Oupa's principles into her own practice, which emphasizes the need to understand her patients’ stories to provide the best possible care. And in The Other Family Doctor, Dr. Fine shares all these touching, joyful, heartbreaking, and life-affirming tales that make up her career as a vet. There's:• The feral cat who becomes a creature out of a fable when he puts his trust in a young vet to heal his injured paw• The pot-bellied pig who grows too big to fit in the car but remains a cherished part of her family • The surprising colony of perfectly behaved ferrets• The beloved aging pet who gives her people the gift of accompanying them on one final family vacation• The dog who saves his owner's life in a most unexpected way Woven into Dr. Fine's story are, of course, also the stories of her own pets: the birds, cats, and dogs who have taught her the most valuable lessons—how caring for the animals in our lives can teach us to better care for ourselves, especially when life seems precarious.

DOG-EARED with Lisa Davis EP #27: BOOK:"Another Good Dog: Our Family and Fifty Foster Dogs." AUTHOR: Cara Sue Achterberg

Lisa is joined by Cara Sue Achterberg who talks with Lisa about her book, "Another Good Dog: Our Family and Fifty Foster Dogs." Cara shares her experience fostering fifty dogs and in this interview you will get to hear about quite a few of them.  In addition Cara's book and this interview touches on mothering older children who don't need you quite as much and the challenges that comes with that. Cara Achterberg is the author of seven books, a creative writing teacher, and a shelter dog advocate. Her memoir, Another Good Dog: One Family and Fifty Foster Dogs was a People magazine ‘people’s pick’ and featured on the Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family Show. Her book, One Hundred Dogs & Counting: One Woman, Ten Thousand Miles, and a Journey Into the Heart of Shelters and Rescues led to Cara cofound Who Will Let the Dogs Out, a nonprofit initiative to raise awareness and resources for shelter dogs. Cara lives in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia with her husband, three rescue dogs, and a rotating cast of foster dogs and cats. For more information visit CaraWrites.com.BOOK DESCRIPTION:In 2015, Cara Achterberg’s Pennsylvania farm became a haven for Operation Paws for Homes, which rescues dogs from high-kill shelters in the rural south and shuttles them north to foster homes. Nine puppies arrived with less than a day’s notice; a heart-worm positive dog; a deeply traumatized stray pup from Iraq; and countless others who just needed a gentle touch and a warm place to sleep. The stories of these remarkable dogs—including an eighty-pound bloodhound who sang arias for the neighbors—and the joy they bring to Cara and her family (along with a few chewed sofa cushions) fill the pages of this touching and inspiring book.When asked how she can possibly say goodbye to that many lovable pups, Cara says, “If I don’t give this one away, I can’t possibly save another.” Filled with humanity and hope, Another Good Dog will take the reader on a journey of smiles, laughs, and tears—and lead us to wonder how many other good dogs are out there and what we can do to help.

EP #1203: Foods to Avoid according to Ayurveda and MUCH more with Kulreet Chaudhary, MD

Lisa is joined by Kulreet Chaudhary, MD about foods to avoid according to Ayurveda and much more!  Dr. Kulreet Chaudhary, MD, is a neurologist, neuroscientist and an internationally recognized expert in the ancient practice of Ayurvedic medicine. She earned her medical degree at Loma Linda University School of Medicine; completed her internship at University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) and neurology residency at University of California San Diego (UCSD). Chaudhary is the author of “The Prime” (Penguin Random House, 2016) and “Sound Medicine” (Harper Collins, 2020); is a pioneer in the field of integrative medicine and is a highly sought-after speaker, researcher and adviser for Healthy Directions. She is the former director of Wellspring Health in Scripps Memorial Hospital, where she successfully combined conventional treatments with Ayurvedic practices of detoxification, diet and lifestyle management to help patients effectively manage chronic neurological disorders such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and migraine headaches. Her program was so successful that it is now used for a wide range of health concerns, including weight issues and chronic disease. Through her integrative approach, Chaudhary teaches her patients about the connection between mind, body and spirit, which impacts every aspect of health both physically and mentally. Chaudhary also has extensive media experience including being a regular medical contributor for “The Dr. Oz Show.”LEARN MORE: https://drkulreetchaudhary.com/ADDITIONAL INFO (some in interview, some not) The Ayurvedic diet is tailored toward your dosha type, and some of the recommendations can shift with the season or as you age because your dosha can change during these times. Your dosha type will either be a vata, pitta, kapha or a combination of these and the beauty of an Ayurvedic diet is that it doesn’t have to be done all at once.Helpful tips based on your dosha type to improve digestion: Vatas should take a stroll after eating: A brief, relaxing 5–15-minute walk will ground you and help to pull vata dosha types downward to support healthy digestion. Pittas go green: Pitta dosha types tend to favor certain fruits and vegetables over others and should minimize the consumption of sour and salty foods, acidic foods and beverages and meats. Kaphas spice it up: Kapha dosha types should consume spicy and bitter tastes, room temperature or hot beverages, honey and ghee in moderation and warm, cooked foods.Practice intermittent fasting: your gut needs a break to stay efficient, and your body detoxes and repairs overnight. Fasting during sundown honors your circadian rhythms. This automatically generates more energy and greater mental clarity, allowing you to jump out of bed feeling fresh and vibrant each morningThe Power of Mantra: There is an Ayurvedic proverb, “What you eat becomes your mind.” What this means is that your food influences everything about your mind—the way you think as well as your clarity, mood and memory. The foods we drink and the beverages we consume become a part of who we are and the impact that has on not only our brain, but our gut microbiome shapes the health of every organ in our body.

Duncan lives in California finding his way to an authentic expression of himself, including and especially his sense of humor, has been the most rewarding aspect of healing from trauma.More about Shannon and the book: Shannon Duncan tried everything to heal from his debilitating childhood trauma. His breakthrough came when he explored psychedelics under the close and skilled guidance of trained professionals. Duncan carefully chronicles his experience in Coming Full Circle: Using Psychedelics to Heal Trauma  (On sale: March 7, 2023; Present Moment Press Inc).  The book aims to empower its readers with a greater understanding of the true potential, limitations, risks, and nuances to the process of using psychedelics to heal trauma. With each passing year, new evidence emerges about the immense healing potential psychedelics offer for anxiety, depression, addiction, PTSD and more. And this information comes from credible studies and research groups.  As the information grows so too does the often-dangerous misinformation generated by profiteers and pseudo experts. To help disseminate information properly and as an advocate for those seeking to heal from trauma, it is Duncan’s sincere wish that sharing what he learned through his experiences will be of service to those who are in need. A fierce protector of those who are utilizing psychedelics as a way to heal their emotional wounds and trauma, Duncan knows firsthand the courage, determination, and vulnerability required to approach emotional healing in this specialized way. In the book, Duncan shares what he learned during his own intensive multi-year process of healing trauma with the help of psychedelics.

EP #1193: Three Ayurvedic Gut/Mind Actions That Help Your Mood the Spring with Kulreet Chaudhary, MD

Lisa is joined by Dr. Kulreet Chaudhary, MD who shares three Ayurvedic gut/mind actions that can spontaneously help improve mood this spring (including: switching your inner dialogue, herbs that help, and meditation and mantras).The science of mental health and the gut microbiome is only now emerging in modern medicine, however this connection between gut and brain has been understood for thousands of years in Ayurveda. Dr. Chaudhary shares how coordinating healing of the mind with the gut, from the ancient science of Ayurveda can help immediately reap the harvest of a happier and more fulfilled year.  Also, The Wall Street Journal ran an article reporting on two new studies showing gut bacteria is linked to depression. What modern medicine is now discovering about this connection, ancient medicine has known for centuries, and Dr. Kulreet Chaudhary can share with your audience how to get your mind-gut connection in sync for the spring. Would you like to schedule an interview Dr. Kulreet Chaudhary? More details:Dr. Kulreet Chaudhary, MD, author of “The Prime” ​​says depression isn’t just a mind game, but very much a gut game too and new research is validating what ancient medicine has been focused on for centuries. Two new studies published in the journal Nature Communications found a link between several types of bacteria in the gut and depressive symptoms. Scientists are exploring whether some gut bacteria produce or consume mood-regulating chemicals, such as serotonin, or chemicals that cause inflammation in the body, which research has linked to depressive symptoms. Dr. Chaudhary is an internationally recognized expert in the ancient practice of Ayurvedic medicine (pronounced eye-yur-vayda and translated to “knowledge of life”). She says, in Ayurveda medicine, the gut and brain are one functional unit and the fastest way to shift mood is by changing diet, improving gut health and shifting your microbiome. When the gut-brain connection is disrupted—no matter what else you may add to boost your mood—you’re fighting an uphill battle. Dr. Chaudhary says without addressing gut health, you can spend years searching for mental health solutions with limited or unproductive results.

When a trainer’s body is found on-site, Molly knows it’s her duty to put her ex-police skills to use. She can’t say no to temporarily taking in the deceased woman’s dog, either—not with those puppy dog eyes.Relationships at the training facility are not as clean as the prize-winning agility runs, making it difficult for Molly to get a leash on potential suspects. And her personal life is just as messy—her boyfriend is hiding something, her agoraphobic neighbor needs help, and her number of four-legged friends keep growing as she agrees to dogsit a wriggly local French bulldog. When Molly’s friend is arrested for the murder, she’s not sure who to believe anymore. Is the case as simple as the local cops make it seem, or is something more devious afoot?

SPECIAL HP EP #1186: 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY of BOSTON MARATHON BOMBING: Motherhood, Trauma, Healing & Relationships with MEGHAN ZIPIN

Lisa is joined by Meghan Zipin who talks about her experiences of being in the bombing at the Boston Marathon 10 years ago this year.  Meghan Zipin has a Masters in Physical Therapy from Northeastern University (2006). In 2013, she earned her MBA from Boston College. A survivor of the Boston Marathon bombing. Today, she writes about motherhood, trauma, healing and relationships. First Light, to be published in April 2023, is her first book. Meghan lives on eleven acres in New Hampshire with her husband, three curly-haired boys and their dog, Oona. April 15th, 2013 is a day that will not only remain memorialized in the hearts and minds of Bostonians, but that of the entire country. We watched in horror as two bombs detonated near the finish line of the iconic Boston Marathon, claiming the lives of 3 innocent victims, and injuring hundreds more. The first successful domestic terror attack since 9/11 culminated with a massive search for the bomber, forcing a lockdown in Boston and neighboring communities. Next month marks the 10th anniversary of the Boston Marathon Bombing.  For marathon runner Meghan Zipin, a survivor of this tragic event, it was a day that shaped the rest of her life. As she approached the finish line, two of her closest friends were there, running alongside her for the final stretch, ready to share in her accomplishment. In a matter of seconds, what should have been a joyous celebration, instead turned into something entirely different. In Meghan's own words, "Those girls were blown up, suffering life threatening injuries. The weight of guilt is insurmountable."  But, from almost every tragedy, inspiration can be drawn.  In the courtroom, as part of her victim impact statement, Meghan told the bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, "I know one day I'll be a better mother and my husband a better father because we will show our children all that is good in this world; all there is to be thankful for." As part of her healing journey, Meghan has authored First Light (April 15, 2023), a collection of poetry that serves as a personal timeline from the time of the bombing to her healing and becoming a parent. This collection is a tribute to the commitment she made in the courtroom and a testament to the idea that we can keep going.
