Cancer is the second leading cause of death worldwide, but modern medicine has only made small improvements in healing protocols in the past thirty years. Here’s cancer treatment history at a glance:

1930s: chemotherapy pioneered for use in treating cancer

1950s: chemotherapy protocols formalized and show efficacy

1960s: surgery and radiation used for solid tumors

1988: antibody treatments approved for use in some cancers

1988 - Present: chemo, surgery, and radiation remain the primary treatments for most cancers. Detection has improved, but treatment has only shown moderate improvements in all these years. 

On this week’s podcast, we’ll look at the often-ignored necessity to any healing protocol and the key to prevention: food and lifestyle.

Around 20% of people have reported a major breakdown in one or more relationships during the pandemic. This includes romantic couples, but also work, family, and friend relationships strained by distance, differing viewpoints, and lack of human connection. But at the same time, 27% said their relationship with their spouse or partner got better! 

Did the pandemic cause the change or simply reveal what was already there? On this week’s podcast, you’ll meet a psychiatrist whose private practice and written work focuses on mood and anxiety disorders, and more recently, fixing dysfunctional relationship patterns.

If you have a weak or damaged pelvic floor, it can cause incontinence, prolapse, and back pain. Did you assume this only affects postpartum women or the elderly? Nope, pelvic floor dysfunction is now common in younger men and women too.

In yoga, we often refer to this region as mula bandha and uddiyana bandha. You might have heard it referred to as your deep core or pelvic diaphragm. Whatever name you use, it’s an often overlooked area of the body, and there is an entire movement system designed to train this region: hypopressives.

Learn:

  • “Six pack” vs deep core, what is the difference? 
  • Why do many people accidentally pee when they laugh or lift
  • How can the pelvic floor affect your posture?
  • The breathing vs. pelvic floor diaphragm connection
  • How proper breathing can make you stronger and more stable (down there)

1000s of air rage incidents have been logged just in the past year alone where people lose it mid-flight. They scream, become violent, and cause such a ruckus that they have to be duct taped to their chairs or arrested. Similar incidents are happening at public rallies, in grocery stores, and perhaps even in your home or office. In short, emotions are running high, and most of us are poorly equipped to deal with them.

You’ve no doubt heard of emotional intelligence, but that’s simply a test or assessment. Emotional competence consists of the hard skills needed to understand your own emotions and those of others. And once you can understand, label, and communicate those emotions effectively, high conflict situations can de-escalate fast. On this week’s podcast, you’ll meet a lawyer and mediator who shares his multi-decade experience in some of the most high-stakes situations imaginable.

Listen & Learn

  • How to start by being self aware
  • The importance of self-regulate
  • How to develop empathy and affect label others 
  • Why most of us were raised in emotional dysfunctional homes
  • How most situations can be de-escalated in 90 seconds or less
