I’m really excited about today’s podcast. In honor of Mental Health month, I’d like to illustrate how an emotional healing technique can help with mental health problems through the use of a scene in a movie. The emotional healing technique is called, The Method, and the movie is “Ordinary People.”
Today, you’ll hear a perspective on why health hasn’t been simple, and how it can be. You’ll learn why health is so confusing, namely that health information is constantly changing, everybody has an opinion, and research has known problems, with an analysis of The Seven Countries study and the latest research that supports why cholesterol and saturated fat are health promoting. You’ll also learn about epigenetics, a field of biology, that supports why lifestyle can override your genes.
My mother turns 87 today and she’s in terrific health! Knock on wood, she doesn’t have or has ever had any major illnesses, and she isn’t on any medications. In today’s world, that’s unheard of. She’s strong and vital and has always looked ten or twenty years younger. She’s taken good care of herself and it’s paid off. Join me as I honor my mother and share about her vibrant health on this day, her 87th birthday.
Obtaining vibrant health begins with eating healthy — eating fresh food, which is food that comes straight from the land or seas. But eating fresh food is only the start, not a guarantee, of your body obtaining the benefit of the nutrients in the fresh food. There are two factors to consider: 1. How well your body digests food and 2. The health of your intestinal tract. Learn the science that discusses the process of the body breaking down food and assimilating nutrients.

Unconscious thoughts pose the greater problem. Learn how this can happen and how anxiety can be uncovered and released using a technique that is designed to let go of whatever is bothering you.
Do you sometimes overdo healthy things? It’s easy to do. It’s exciting when you hear about a compelling, new idea. The idea in and of itself may be beneficial, but overdoing it usually is not. In part, overdoing it has to do with some of our common attitudes that include “All or Nothing” thinking. Instead of “Less is more,” “More is more.” And” No pain, no gain.” And yet, that’s not how the human body is designed to work. Learn about the science that supports why overdoing healthy things can be unhealthy.
Learn how lifestyle plays an integral role in a therapeutic program that is designed to reverse memory and thinking problems (cognitive decline).
