EFR 620: Bridging the Gap Between Fitness and Functional Medicine and How to Improve Gut Health Through Trauma Healing with Rachel Scheer

Rachel Scheer shares how she came to discover her natural talent for weightlifting which, combined with an insatiable work ethic and trust and belief in herself, led her down an unexpected path that would challenge everything she knew about health and wellness. After a series of gut-related issues reared their heads at the beginning of her fitness career, it all came to a head when the motility in her gut completely halted. After being told that the only solution to her condition was the removal of her entire large intestine (an option she seriously considered for a while), Rachel eventually decided that there had to be another way. She threw herself into studying as much as she could about the gut, leading her to discover the power of the microbiome and a pathway to healing she never realized existed.

EFR 589: Staying Motivated to Train and How Your Mental Health, Biology, and Environment May Be Working Against Your Fitness Goals

In this solo episode, Chase reflects on his seasons of training, unpacking the things that have kept him motivated—and continue to keep him motivated—in and out of the gym. After over 17 years of purposefully and intentionally leading an active lifestyle, one of the most fundamental lessons Chase has learned is the cumulative power of consistency. You could say that just stepping foot in the gym when it’s the last thing you feel like doing, is already half the battle. Many times, it really comes down to doing whatever it takes to simply show up, even if that means relying on external motivation to push you forward. Going through your personal seasons of fitness means that there will be weeks, months, or even a few years when that internal motivation that first got you going to the gym is no longer enough. As you “mature” on your fitness journey, you will need to find ways to reinvigorate your passion for training. Chase finds

Challenges suck, but needless to say, they're an inevitable part of life.

EFR 556: How to Become Someone You Are Proud Of and Go From Being an Unconscious Consumer to Conscious Creator with Matthew Paetz

Matthew Paetz returns on Ever Forward Radio to share how he has been navigating the seemingly endless period of uncertainty brought about by the pandemic—particularly around how he has been striving to shift from being what he calls an “unconscious consumer” to being a “conscious creator”. “I’m creating a life I’ve never had by doing things I’ve never done,” says Matthew, adding that his focus has been on building on himself over his achievements. One of the major ways he has been doing this over the past 18 months is by immersing himself in the world of psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy as a modality for addressing trauma. Matthew defines these guided sessions as “medicines for the soul”—contrasting it with alcohol which he calls “medicine for the ego”. He then breaks down the development of our ego and how these sessions allow you to detach from that ego and see your life from a completely different perspective. “T

Our outer world is a direct reflection of our inner world, and optimal health is all about adopting the right habits that support those two worlds.

It’s a healing system which teaches us that change is an intrinsic quality in nature, and so why shouldn’t we see that reality of continuous change in ourselves? In other words, Ayurveda teaches us to turn to nature for wisdom on how we, as human beings, should discern what’s best for our life. When we experience symptoms of any kind, whether internally or externally, it is an indicator that we are not in harmony with the world around us, or with ourselves.

Every child has a dream of what they’ll be when they grow up. For Jesse Bradley, his dream was to be a professional athlete. His dream came to fruition, but at a price he never imagined he’d have to pay.  During his time traveling the world, he landed in Zimbabwe playing professional men’s soccer. Though, medication meant to protect him from malaria brought on a brutal bout of illness, ending his dream career. “… and yet, it was the greatest growth period of my life,” he says, “I was fighting for my life for one year, it took 10 years to fully recover.” When it seems like your life is falling apart, what do you rely on? For many, it’s hope, yet half of Americans experience hopelessness. The good news is there are simple steps you can take to overcome hopelessness and find the light at the end of the tunnel. Jesse Bradley is here to share what he’s learned from his inspiring journey of illness, recovery, forgiveness, and resilience.   Follow Jesse <

EFR 523: How to Become Fully Present in Every Conversation and Cultivate Meaningful Connections with Dr. Edward Bodkin, MD and Ashley Pallathra

The pandemic, political disagreements, war… there are so many sources of separation and loneliness in the world. That’s why, now more than ever, we must shed light on the importance of human connection, attunement, and cultivating presence within ourselves as well as with others. Meaningful connection is an innate, primal need from the time we’re born to the time we return to the dirt of the Earth.  When we find that connection, we enter a flow state and even our brain waves become synchronized. Imagine the immense change and growth we could experience if we put more energy into connecting with ourselves and one another! Dr. Edward Bodkin and Ashley Pallathra have co-authored the insightful book, Missing Each Other, that delves into the idea that learning about yourself makes it easier to connect with others.

For Noel, her very first introduction to plant medicine through microdosing psilocybin and ayahuasca served as an amazing gateway into her journey toward holistic healing. “I don’t look at it as being defiant; I look at it as being curious,” says Noel, speaking on her decision to look the other way despite her doctors’ advice at the outset of her diagnosis. Noel describes the painful letting-go process that followed when she realized that she and her husband had to find a new home after testing the house for mold, and how this process helped her become more intentional about her health and possessions.

Having grown up in the Pentecostal faith, she recalls her seemingly endless struggle with being othered by her own religious circle for being a biracial, gender-nonconforming kid. But the same “neglect, instability, and abandonment” that she experienced daily as a child only fueled her determination to find acceptance—even if it meant stepping away from her faith community. Her journey led her to become what she is today: “A trans woman fully actualized, absolutely confident, and precious.” She lives with her husband Myles—who is transmasculine—and infant daughter Zayn.

EFR 509: Why Everyone Can Benefit From Taking Collagen with Charlie Bailes

What makes collagen such a unique protein and why should you care? For starters, collagen is the most abundant protein in your body, making up about a third of your body’s protein composition. It’s known as the “glue” that holds everything together, and once you hit 25, your body’s ability to create collagen begins to weaken; hence the “aches and pains” of old age. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Today’s guest, Charlie Bailes, says that he is in better shape at 34 than he was at 24, mainly thanks to incorporating more collagen into his diet. But what really opened his eyes to the power of collagen was its healing effect on his daughter Vivian, who at 1-and-a-half years old, routinely became sick. After introducing collagen into her diet (alongside other healthy lifestyle choices such as cutting out gluten, vegetable oils, and sugar), Vivian, who was told by multiple pulmonologists that she would be on an inhaler for the rest of her life, now

Carter himself attributes his past obesity to “using food as an emotional suppressant.” Carter goes on to say, “It’s really about reframing things and getting people to a place where they don’t feel like they have to make better choices and they have to exercise, but that they get to do these things.” Carter Good is a weight loss coach and the founder of the Leaner for Life community. He shares the story of how he lost 100 pounds in eight months, and why the hardest part of his journey came only after he lost all that weight.   Follow Car

More often than not, out of our most challenging moments emerge our greatest opportunities. It took only 24 hours to turn young Logan Sneed’s entire world upside down. A college athlete and aspiring entrepreneur, a stage-4 brain cancer diagnosis was the last thing Logan ever expected at that point in his life. But that’s exactly what happened following a near-accident on the road when Logan blacked out while FaceTiming his girlfriend. Together with his strong-willed parents, Logan was able to connect with one of the most sought-after neurosurgeons in the world, who thankfully managed to extract the egg-sized tumor.

EFR 491: How to Make a Career Pivot to Pursue Your True Passion with Sean and Dala McDevitt

Up till only a few years ago, Sean and Dala McDevitt never saw themselves leading a fast-growing community of wellness enthusiasts with 19 coaches on staff that has led to over 2800 people completely transforming their lives. The couple had always had a passion for health and fitness (they actually met at a gym) even back when they worked traditional jobs (Sean was in sales and marketing, and Dala was a labor and delivery nurse). In 2016, Dala set up her Instagram profile @dalalovesdumbbells to share how she found and healed herself through fitness, with the hope of inspiring and elevating others as well. Monetizing the brand was not on her radar; that is, until her budding community began referring to themselves with the hashtag #DLDNation.

EFR 490: Breaking the Cannabis Stigma and Achieving Homeostasis with Plant Medicine with John Malanca

John Malanca was inspired to start United Patients Group in 2011 after a totally unexpected episode when his father-in-law Stan was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer along with a brain tumor on his brain stem. The situation seemed hopeless, seeing their father going from being a seemingly healthy 77-year-old one day, to being given a mere two weeks to live the next. “When you’re diagnosed,” says John, recalling those moments of desperation, “you’ll try anything.” That “anything”, as fate would have it, was cannabis. They started by giving Stan THC capsules infused with coconut oil in order to get him to start eating again. It worked. A day later, he was back at work on a computer. Nine months after the diagnosis, John’s family got an email that simply stated “no evidence of recurrent disease.” That was in 2011. Today, Stan is alive and well.

One day, after a coffee run during a road trip with colleagues, the car was forced to do a sudden break, causing the scalding hot beverages to spill all over Khaled’s lap. His skin was ripped clean off and he suffered second-degree burns that took a month-and-a-half to heal.

If we want to change any negative aspect of our lives, whether it be around our physical or mental health, how we communicate with others, or manage our time or money, it all starts with becoming self-aware of our own deep-seated beliefs and paradigms, then reframing our interpretation of the events that formed those beliefs and paradigms.

This is the question that drives Jeff Byers, a former NFL player and the current CEO of Amp Human, which offers innovative products that help athletes push the limits on their performance, adaptation, and recovery. With an interest in both sports and entrepreneurship from an early age, Jeff always harbored an interest in finding creative ways to push his boundaries for growth as a human. “I was always thinking about the little things I could do to get better,” he says. “I tried to use my brain to work smarter than always just work harder.” After retiring from the NFL, Jeff worked for a few years in the finance space before joining an early-stage biotech startup in late 2015. This company had discovered a way to deliver pharmaceuticals through the skin, bypassing the GI system which often limits the body’s ability to optimally absorb vitamins and minerals taken or

His journey from employee to entrepreneur is a familiar one to many who have been, or currently are, in his shoes. The Texas native followed his friends and family into the oil and gas industry right out of college for no other reason than that’s what everybody else in his circle did.

EFR 458: Improving Metabolic Health and Potential Indicators That Your Blood Sugar Levels Are a Problem with Dr. Casey Means

Dr. Casey Means, MD is the Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer at Levels, a metabolic health company that provides individuals “real-time continuous glucose biofeedback coupled with machine-learning driven insights to inform personalized diet and lifestyle choices.” Glucose, unlike other biomarkers, provides us a closed biofeedback loop which if tracked helps us make better diet and lifestyle choices on the fly. Other biomarkers, such as genetics or cholesterol, do not provide that real-time information which means we cannot track changes around them based on our nutritional and lifestyle choices on a day-to-day basis. “The beauty of glucose,” says Dr. Means, “is that there are tools, right now, that can measure our glucose levels in real-time, at home, with a wearable sensor. Unlike these other variables, we can actually see how this biomarker is changing based on choices that we made five minutes ago.” For several years, glucose monitors have been available a

Sugarbreak, which raised $3 million in seed funding, offers pills and tongue strips to reduce sugar cravings. A suite of products backed by science was the goal.

Sugarbreak’s marquee product is Resist, a dissolvable minty breath strip that blocks your taste buds from tasting anything sweet for about 45 minutes, curbing sugar cravings on the spot. Its key ingredient is gymnema sylvestre which makes sugar taste like “sand on your tongue”. In other words, “it interrupts your ability to enjoy sweets” by “break[ing] that connection between your brain and the reward of sugar.” Its other two products are Stabilize, a pre-meal capsule which helps blo

Eliot Marshall is a martial artist, business owner, podcaster, bestselling author, and a self-proclaimed “ex-UFC fighter turned motivational speaker”. Eliot points to change as the defining characteristic of his life and career. He looks at each new day as an opportunity for growth, and believes fully that he is a better man today than he was at any other point, regardless of past successes. In fact, even with a prolific run in MMA behind him, Eliot admits that “my UFC career was literally just me trying to hide all these insecurities I have.” Today, instead of running away from the coward within, Eliot embraces that side. He made it a point to learn all about his fear, and to coexist with that fear.

EFR 453: You Turn - Get Unstuck, Discover Your Direction, and Design Your Dream Career with Ashley Stahl

Ashley Stahl is a counterterrorism professional turned highly sought-after career coach, TEDx speaker, Forbes blogger, podcaster, and author. In January 2021, she published her first book, You Turn: Get Unstuck, Discover Your Direction, and Design Your Dream Career. She illustrates her approach to getting “unstuck” as traveling from one lilypad to another. The first lilypad is where most people start out: They have a dream (or at least the outline of one) but are too afraid to take the next step thanks to the myriad of what-ifs plaguing their mind. Getting over to the second lilypad is all about creating a “river channel” by figuring out your unique gift and learning how to harness your primary skillset. It’s about acknowledging that the key to getting unstuck in your career is to not do what you love, but to do what you are. The third and final lilypad is “a level of dharma” achieved onl

Dr. Anthony Balduzzi is a naturopathic doctor, national champion bodybuilder, and founder of the Fit Father Project and Fit Mother Project—online health and fitness communities aimed at empowering busy parents to get healthy, lose weight, and build muscle through practical nutrition and exercise plans. Seeing his father suffer through sickness and pass away at the age of 42 imprinted in young Anthony’s mind that life is both finite and fragile. Being faced with mortality so early on, no less through a parent, catapulted him into the world of health and fitness. He realized, as he went down this path, that it all comes down to “how we manage our nutrition, our sleep, our movement, and our mindset.” The tragic, early experience of losing his dad planted a seed within Anthony to help others like his father who were “just busy and caught in the throes of managing everything” at the expense of their healthy routines. “Health,” he continues, “is often put on the backburner w

May joins Chase to discuss ways to become more intentional with your time and find ways as a couple to stay on track with your physical health and wellness goals. One of the many challenges 2020 presented was very limited access to gyms and other fitness resources, especially for folks based in Los Angeles like Chase and May. It was a huge hurdle that made it harder not only to get regular workouts in, but also to stay motivated to maintain healthy eating habits. With their local F45 having opened back up recently, there’s finally been some semblance of normalcy in the couple’s routine.

At the same time she gives advice on how not to overlook yourself when trying to be there for your loved ones. The seed to her brand, Motherhood Unstressed, was planted right after her first son was born in 2012. In that particular moment for Liz, the beautiful promise of motherhood was overshadowed by the intense discomfort, the stress, and the feelings of doubt that plagued her throughout the process. Liz recalls that “something was amiss” in that moment, and yet she decided she would not “stay in that spot”. She knew that it was no one else’s job—not even her husband’s—to lift her up. It was ultimately hers and hers alone. That was the catalyst behind her mission to promote self-love for mothers everywhere.

EFR 357: Signs Your Gut Health is Compromised and How to Heal It with Sharon Brown

In 2006 Sharon Brown a mother at her wit’s end. She had a six-year old son who had been on and off antibiotics since birth, suffering from chronic sinus infections, ear infections, and respiratory infections. After a particularly upsetting meeting with his first grade teacher, who was recommending ADD medication – on top of everything else – Sharon knew there had to be another way. She began searching for alternative solutions, but information was hard to come by – this was before you could find the answer to everything online. Finally, she came across the concept that bone broth could help strengthen the gut lining, and, therefore, support the immune system. After three months her son had not needed antibiotics once. Six months went by. Then nine. Then a year. Blake hadn’t gone to the doctor’s office once. They knew we were on to something!   Follow Sharon and Bonafide Provisions @bonafideprovisions</
