Diving deeper, she learned how Calcium ATPase, a fundamental regulator of intercellular calcium, is negatively impacted, not only by these additives, but by a torrent of other inhibitors.

EP #998: Setting a GPS for Your Mind with Lori Saltz
Lisa is joined by Lori Saltz, founder of Zen Rabbit. . Lori takes your personal experiences, memories, and stories and creates customized meditations! Why custom meditations? Lori says, "When the directions are simply "think of a time when..." Or "picture yourself in your ideal situation..." Your brain doesn't have enough specific direction and tends to start serving up all kinds of thoughts and worries. You're quickly off task and not getting any of the benefits of visualizing what you really want."A custom-created meditation solves that problem because the experiences, events, feelings, and future desires are yours. Your brain is hearing, remembering and visualizing exactly what you want it to picture. Your mind is not trying to conjure up images. It's being told precisely what to think about- in your own words.

EP #997: Histamine Intolerance, SIBO, Healing Your Gut & more!

Danna chats with Lisa about the impact her grandmother had on her health and life, how her gut was damaged by taking antibiotics regularly throughout her whole childhood and how to heal it, and explains histamine intolerance and SIBO(Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth). In Danna's own words" I’m a happily married, silly, fun-loving, food-obsessed, 2-boy-raising, a passionate health, and lifestyle coach. I’ve started my entrepreneurship journey with Miso Cute Cooking – healthy cooking courses for kids and their parents, over 5 years ago, but have been on a healthy lifestyle journey since 2010. I am a proud graduate of The Institute For Integrative Nutrition, and loving every single piece which makes the puzzle of my life. But it hasn’t always been the case.My story will forever start with my grandmother, who was a huge influence in my life when I was younger, and even more so after her death. I could talk about grandma for days, but I promised to keep this short, so if you want to hear more about my grandma’s story you can watch this short video below (IGNITE), and read here (Grandma blog).In combination with everything that happened with grandma, shortly after I gave birth to both of my boys, we found out that my mother had two types of cancer. That and being about 20kg more than I ever was, was pretty much the straw that broke the camel’s back. Although I tried every diet in the book, from Weight Watchers to Atkins to anything in between, deep inside me I felt this was all wrong! I was feeling MISERABLE! I was feeling DEPRIVED! And most importantly, I was HUNGRY. ALL. THE. TIME! Was this really it? Could I live a healthy life AND lose weight at the same time? And if so, will I really have to eat lettuce three times a day for the rest of my life???I started studying and investigating, I found some amazing experts to follow, and although it took me a good few years, I’ve managed to find a diet-free, deprivation-free, hunger-free lifestyle! Was it easy?NOPE!I had no one to hold my hand and guide me. No one to explain that each body will function differently on the same food or diet.I WANT TO MAKE IT EASY FOR YOU!It was that hardship that lead me to the decision to help women like YOU, to reach a healthier lifestyle where you too can enjoy the food you eat, the extra energy you gain, and the extra time you have, all while living a deliciously healthy lifestyle, and living it in a sustainable way!"

EP #990: Energy Work, Healing Trauma, & more with Jonathan Goldman
Lisa and Andrea are joined by Jonathan Goldman, M.Ac. to talk about his book The Gift of the Body: A Multi-Dimensional Guide to Energy, Anatomy, Grounded Spirituality and Living Through the Heart. Enjoy this rich discussion covering some of what is below. The work that Goldman does and teaches clears lifelong depression, trauma, fears, anxieties, resentments, shame, self-judgment, relationship dysfunction, scarcity thinking, spiritual disconnection, and much more. Goldman's goal is to lead you to become "the commander of your own vehicle." He teaches you the art of inner alignment --The Divine Tactics -- to be empowered to live your life informed by self-knowledge and self-actualization. You become your own teacher by having access to your heart, your intuition, and the inspiration of Light. This work is not defined by ideology or religious dogma. It is based on the reality of Light and the inherent qualities present in all humans. An example: compassion is a universal force. It lives in a specific location in your heart chakra. It is built into your original equipment. It has nothing necessarily to do with religion. It is not the same thing as empathy. The embodiment of compassion is the key to healing, energetic protection, and inner peace. This is something anybody can learn. This knowledge has come to Goldman through a fascinating journey that has led him to become one of the first practitioners of acupuncture in the United States, to the depth of the Amazon rainforest of Brazil, and to teaching and guiding people in their spiritual transformation all over the world. He learned his craft through forty years of clinical practice and multiple pieces of training in various healing arts. Under the guidance of a leading Bioenergetic practitioner and spiritual teacher, he experienced a consciousness-awakening journey to Brazil that opened his mediumistic gifts and made him available to multi-dimensional influences. This initially manifested when he was guided where to put needles in patients that were not in keeping with traditional teachings-and he began to get phenomenal results! Tracking the diagrams of needle placement, enabled him to begin charting the Human Energy Vehicle. From that point forward, Goldman began receiving what became The Chakra Map, Transformational Energy Healing, and The Divine Tactics. His own journey of personal healing and spiritual evolution has paralleled the knowledge that he has received and taught to thousands.Goldman is one of the leading educators on the embodiment of Light and its use in healing and for spiritual illumination. The Essential Light Institute, which he co-founded in 2008, is dedicated to teaching the arts of self-transformation and energy healing through a direct relationship with the living force of Light. In his book The Gift of the Body: A Multi-Dimensional Guide to Energy, Anatomy, Grounded Spirituality and Living Through the Heart he describes it as "an experiential, practical, transformational manual for the adventure school of your life." Goldman is also one of the premier experts and leaders in the United States in the ceremonial use of plant medicine. He led the decade-long campaign that successfully freed the Santo Daime for spiritual practice in the U.S.

She shares four of the 9 anxiety tools in this interview that she details in her new book to help successful people harness nervous energy including: Creating mental shortlistsCreating emotion-based to-do listsScripting anchoring statementsScheduling “worry time.” More than one-third of Americans have displayed clinical signs of anxiety, depression, or both since the coronavirus pandemic began, according to Pew Research Center. 2021 is the perfect year to reimagine how we handle stress and Dr. Chloe shares simple ways to adjust and thrive through inevitable life changes.
