Mark Lukach's wife spent nearly two months in total in psychiatric wards during three different bipolar episodes. Mental illness appeared seemingly out of nowhere with suicidal thoughts, delusions, and dangerous behavior. While this story sounds extreme, I promise that someone you know and care about is suffering right now, as well. That being said, there's a good chance you can help.

On this week's show, we'll look closely at mental illness, which affects one in every four households today. My hope is that this family's story will inspire you to find the courage to deal with the darkness.  

Listen & Learn:

  • Why suicide is a huge (and growing) problem all over the world
  • Medication vs. natural solutions—what's best?
  • Why talking and listening will always be important
  • How to remove the stigma of mental illness and get help

Have you ever heard someone blame their weight gain on a 'slow metabolism?' It sounds logical, but what does it mean exactly? What is considered 'slow?'

When we talk about metabolic health, it's important to define what it really is. You'll quickly learn that it's multifaceted and you'll need to work separately on each area.

On this week's podcast, we'll talk with Ann Louise Gittleman, the first lady of nutrition, who has very practical advice based on decades of extensive work in health and nutrition.

Listen & Learn:

  • How to optimize your metabolism for weight loss, health, and longevity
  • Why pine nut oil is amazing for digestive problems (among other things)
  • Why many people have lower HCL and bile production as they age
  • Why bitter foods are so important

If you can balance well, your yoga practice is more fun, you’re faster and nimbler, and you might even live longer. Sound far-fetched? Check it out: falls are the second leading cause of accidental or unintentional injury deaths worldwide. 424,000 individuals die from falls globally. My balance has improved massively in the past couple years, but historically, I’ve had terrible balance. I assumed it was something I just had to live with, but I’ve learned that poor footwear, bad walking patterns, and zero balance training all created this problem—and it’s largely reversible. On this week’s Yoga Talk Show, you’ll learn about balance training for athletes and anyone who seeks optimal health.

Listen & Learn:

  • Why balance involves your: vestibular system (inner ear), proprioception (body awareness, sensation) and vision
  • How anyone can learn balance at any age using simple at-home tools and approaches
  • Why balance is a software problem, not hardware
  • How a slackline give you a “fall announcement” so land on your feet and stay safe
  • How 25% of your bones and muscles are in your feet and another 25% in your hands
  • Why slips and falls are the #1 cause of injury (and potentially death) for people over 65

Everyone has some area of their life where they feel totally stuck, and it usually falls into one of three categories: health, wealthy, or relationships. It's very rare that all three of those areas of life are flowing smoothly at once time, it's usually a balancing act where family life is awesome but work is a mess, or work is cruising but your health is suffering.

Have you experienced this? On this week's podcast, we'll talk about engineering a breakthrough in your life with a counterintuitive approach.

Listen & Learn:

  • Why past trauma, pain and unresolved issues often keep you from moving forward
  • Why micro failures are better than big fails
  • How micro successes can snowball into a flurry of wins
  • Why it's so challenging to change, and why it's essential to who we are

A little girl named Charlotte was having as many as 300 seizures a week, some lasting as long as 30 minutes. Her body was frail, her health was suffering, and her parents were at their wits' end.

After every other medical intervention failed, the family tried a nonpsychoactive extract from marijuana called CBD and their lives were never the same again.

Charlotte's story was one of the first to capture people's imagination, from lawmakers to cannabis growers, and in the years since, has helped spawn an entire nutraceuticals industry around this powerful compound. On this week's show, we'll lay out the risks and rewards of self-administered CBD oil.

Listen & Learn:

  • Why most (but not all) CBD products contain little to no THC, meaning they will not get you high
  • How CBD impacts the receptors already present in your body
  • How CBD can reduce inflammation, including inflammation in your brain
  • How to make sure the product you're using is safe and healthful
  • The real legal and safety concerns surrounding CBD products
