Have you heard of fecal implants? This is when the fecal matter from someone with healthy gut bacteria is transferred to the gut of someone with gut dysbiosis—and it works. While this sounds extreme, in today's digestive health landscape, this is a real option some people need to consider when they are suffering from Small Bacterial Intestinal Overgrowth (SIBO).

On this week's Yoga Talk Show, we'll discuss why digestive disorders are so common, and how the remedies can be counter-intuitive such as reducing fiber, lactose, and even fruit.
------------
What You´ll Learn:

  • Why fecal transplants might save your gut
  • Why you should limit fiber, fructose, lactose, resistant starch and most sugar alcohols
  • How erythritol could be the most gut-friendly sugar alcohol
  • How the 3lbs of gut bacteria in our gut can be your friends or foe
  • How low fiber or "elemental diet" could improve bacterial overgrowth

Your typical doctor's visit is less than 7 minutes long. It doesn't matter if you have a broken bone, a tonsil infection, or pancreatic cancer, most of the time you're in and out faster than seems possible. It's not the doctor's fault, it's the system's fault, and the solution is to slow down everything in our lives to achieve balance. But who wants to go slow? Not you, not me... so what to do?

On this week's show, we'll look at creative solutions to finding more quality downtime in life without compromising your goals, ambitions or excitement.
------------
What You´ll Learn:

  • Why community support is the linchpin for health
  • Why we need to properly define what "health" really means (it's not young and beautiful)
  • Why slowing down can be the ultimate self-care routine
  • Why quality "slow time" is more important than quality

"The things you, own end up owning you..." – Tyler Durden (Fight Club). Often times the things we work so hard for end up taking more than the give, the bleed us more than they feed us. It might be the new car, the drawer full of electronics, your pets or even an oversized home; in many cases, our possessions become burdens and we need to take a step back and reevaluate our priorities.

On this week's, Yoga Talk Show, we'll dive deep into minimalism, the art of doing more with less, clearing the clutter, and living a life on purpose.
------------
What You´ll Learn:

  • Why you might want to pack your stuff up as if moving, and then only unpack the stuff you actually need
  • Why our consumer-driven culture can lead to a life full of discontent
  • How less stuff can mean more time, more money, and more ability to contribute
  • How to digitally clean up your life as well

Addiction take many different forms and affects just about everyone either directly or with one degree of separation. While "addict" conjures up images of heroin and cocaine, the reality is that people are addicted to social media, pornography, marijuana, and alcohol at much higher rates. So the question is: Can yoga help?

Our guest on this week's show, Taylor Hunt, used yoga as an integral part of his healing from substance addiction, and he now helps others do the same. Hopefully, his story of personal transformation and dedication to yoga will help you or someone you care about to find a healthy focus for addictions that haunt us.
------------
What You´ll Learn:

  • How Taylor's addiction started at age 15 fueled by a challenging home life
  • How yoga combined with a traditional 12-step program led him to recovery
  • What traditional Ashtanga Yoga is, and its influence on modern practice
  • How to think about the behaviors in your life that might be leading you down a dark path

If you’re a vegetarian, live a high-stress lifestyle or are over 50 years of age, there’s a very good chance you need to supplement with vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 is one of the few vitamins that our body doesn’t produce on its own.

If you don’t eat or supplement with B12, you will develop a deficiency that could lead to anemia, nerve damage, mood and mental health problems. The good news is that B12 supplementation is extremely safe, inexpensive, and is now available in the most bio-available and absorbable form, methylcobalamin.
