Ep.#174: Andrew Marr, former Special Forces Green Beret & Warrior Angels Foundation founder talks the connection between PTSD, brain injuries and hormone optimization, brain injuries's connection to increasing homelessness and incarceration rates and more

Andrew Marr is a former Special Forces Green Beret, founder of Warrior Angels Foundation, an organization whose sole purpose is to stop the deaths of veterans suffering from PTSD symptoms caused by traumatic brain injuries. Marr's last deployment  in 2013 was emotionally and physically taxing where he and his Special Forces team were engaged in constant combat through it's entirety. Marr suffered numerous traumatic brain injuries from explosions, which resulted in his medical retirement.    When Marr returned to the states he began a 6 month spiral downward. Once an elite performer in life or death moments in war, Marr couldn't even remember how to drive home. He started struggling with cognition, memory, behavior, alcohol, all symptoms common with PTSD. The conventional treatment he received from the VA did not help, and so his journey to find a solution began. He joins us today to share that solution with you in the hopes that we can slow if not altogether stop the 22 veterans a day who are committing suicide thinking there is no hope or help for them. There is hope, and there is help.

One could argue that it is his internal and mental strength he channeled to deal with the brutal murder of his little brother, Jimmy Ryce, and the courage Ted and his family endured to help bring his brother's killer to justice, as well as honor his brother by establishing The Jimmy Ryce Center for Victims of Predatory Abduction. (http://www.jimmyryce.org)The Florida-based non-profit was established to help provide bloodhounds to police departments around the country, in order to help other families avoid the loss the Ryce family experienced, as well as put sexual predators on notice.

Ep.#69: Anthony Roberts, a controversial supplement industry watchdog returns to discuss MLM/Network Marketing companies's connection to Crossfit , et al. & if these connections are hurting or helping fitness pro's brand reputation - 041014

Anthony Roberts, a highly controversial supplement industry watchdog, (http://romanoroberts.com.mx) returns to the LLA podcast to discuss the growing presence of network marketing companies infiltrating highly visible organizations such as Crossfit, via their top athletes, to push their products. Companies such as Visalus (Body By Vi), Beach Body, Herbalife, Advocare, & Isagenix, just to name a few, are becoming ever-present in many gyms, and with popular athletes of various sports, including "the sport of fitness." The real question is, are these MLM companies or their products actually helping or hurting organizations such as Crossfit, or does getting into bed with these companies only hurt the reputations of Crossfit, its coaches and athletes, as well as other fitness professionals? Are their products as effective as their evangelist claim, or is all of it just a bunch over the top marketing to sell over-priced products that give sub-par results, at best? Better yet, is the real focus on the product or are fitness professionals utilizing "bait-and-switch/drug dealer tactics" to get their clients and colleagues to buy these products, not with the intention of hoping they deliver on the promise of helping them get healthier, but more along the lines of trying to convince the client or colleague to buy into the company and sell the product, as well, in order to create a huge sales-force to push false promises, for the sake of money, drive cars they never truly own, & trade their clients, colleagues, friends, & family's trust for the sake of a "great business opportunity?" Anthony drops in to share what he's discovered about the health & fitness-oriented network marketing business's claims regarding their products, as well as his thoughts on popular athletes such as Crossfit Games men's champion, Rich Froning's, recent connection with Advocare. On episode #69, Anthony discusses the following with Mike & Sincere: Why post workshop/seminar interactions are like a bonus seminar for free Why network marketing is similar to Jehovah's Witnesses Why most most network marketing, especially "supplement & nutritional-based" MLM companies miss the mark Anthony discusses the curious case of network marketing and Crossfit What makes fitness pros the ideal mark for most network marketing companies Why you may not want that BMW from Body By Vi Network Marketing vs. Affiliate Marketing Why the red flag should rise the next time certain network marketing nutritional companies begin their conversation with "product X is scientifically proven."
