Get ready for an incredible podcast as we discuss openly about food addiction and how to use natural foods to create a life where you no longer have to be a slave to junk food and the emotions that drive their consumption.

What is the real difference between the food cravings of our mind to calm stress and the body's signal that it's in need of real nutrients?

In a busy world, where big food advertising inundates us with immediate gratification through unhealthy choices, it can be easy to succumb to a quick fix from these feel good foods to pick ourselves up and give us that deep breath we're looking for.

But at what point does the occasional fast food meal, bags of chips, or candy purchases lead us to slide down the rabbit hole of uncontrolled and unhealthy habits that sabotage our wellness goals?

No matter how much we try to eat healthy, if our stress and sleep go unmanaged, it can be sometimes almost impossible to turn away from processed, sugary, and carb-laden foods. Even though that tasty Big Mac may bring us pleasure for just a brief moment, sooner or later we know that our food choices can backfire on us.

The moment we let our food cravings win, we may feel unwell, drained and maybe even depressed because yet again, we failed to make a healthy choice.

When a stressed-out mind demands junk food, what the body is really craving is natural foods, that provide us with specific nutrients that satisfy us deep down.

With patience, focus, and understanding, we can tune into the body to discover what natural nutrients it really needs to heal, thrive, and stay strong. Whether in our brain, gut, or thyroid gland, our bodies have this incredible ability to tell us when there's something wrong with our health.

Emotions, Habits, Food, & The Earth Diet

What emotions or physical sensations come to mind when you find yourself in a cycle of eating sugary, fried, junk food?

For Liana Werner-Gray, she was trapped in a constant shame spiral. Even though her food choices were constantly making her feel bloated, sick, and unhappy, she couldn't seem to shake off her sugar addiction.

Then one day, Liana received a life-changing wake up call. Doctors at the hospital discovered a pre-cancerous tumor in the lymphatic system in her neck. This discovery was just what Liana needed to begin the process to end her food addiction. Before she knew it, she was able to heal her body by eating natural foods.

Today, speaker, health advocate, podcast host of Hay House Radio, creator of The Earth Diet and author of The Earth Diet book, Liana Werner-Gray is helping thousands of people to lose weight, live a healthier life, and improve health conditions such as cancer, diabetes, addictions, depression, acne, heart disease, obesity, and more.

As we listen to her incredible journey on this special Wellness Force Radio episode, Liana teaches us about how she overcame her food addiction and found joy by focusing on The Earth Diet Principles, Body Maintenance, Shadow Work, and Mirror Work.

The Earth Diet Principles:

  • Eat from your backyard or from a local store that sells whole, seasonal foods.
  • Honor and acknowledge your cravings to make your own tasty, healthy recipes.
  • Include raw foods in your meals more often including juicing.

Listen To Episode 114 As Liana Uncovers:

  • Liana's background story about growing up in Outback Australia with aborigines.
  • How Liana became addicted to junk food when she left the outback to live in Brisbane City to study film and acting.
  • Liana's family and genetic history connection to addiction, depression, and cancer.
  • The steps Liana had to take to break her sugar addiction and depression.
  • Liana's wake up call that she needed to begin to take care of her health when she discovered that she had a pre-cancerous tumor in the lymphatic system in her neck.
  • How Liana began to fight back against her sugar addiction and write The Earth Diet Blog and only eat clean, nutritious foods from the earth.
  • What is shadow work and how does it help descend addiction?
  • The Earth Diet Principles
    • Eat from your backyard or local, whole, seasonal foods.
    • Honor and acknowledge your cravings to make your own tasty recipes.
    • Include raw foods in your meals more often.
  • What do you do if you don't have a backyard garden to eat homegrown foods from?
  • How Liana handles her food cravings with Shadow Work and the Earth Diet.
  • Liana's core principles to encourage self-love and self-care so that her healthy habits stick with her.
  • How Liana takes care of herself through Body Maintenance by spending an hour each day dedicated to focusing on her body.
  • What Liana focuses on during her Mirror Work time and how it helps her create a positive self-image.
  • How something as simple as juicing can help your body get better and healthy again.
  • Liana's process of trusting that what she's doing to improve her health is working for her.
  • What blocks people from living a healthy lifestyle?

Top 3 Takeaways From The Show

  • Juicing is one of the best ways to get in a ton of great nutrition at once. By creating a natural juice with only raw, nutritious foods, it's like drinking a daily vitamin that has so many wonderful benefits for our bodies. Some ingredients like beets can really clear out anything in the digestive system that's blocking the body from receiving the nutrients that it needs.
  • We need to focus more on our bodies as something powerful that we've been blessed with. To appreciate the body more, take time to do Mirror Work. Like Liana, take a moment to acknowledge what's in the mirror and accept it for what it is. If we have our health, then we have everything.
  • It might be difficult, but we need to trust the process of getting healthy. For Liana, it took just three months to begin seeing a difference in her health and for her tumor to dissolve by following the Earth Diet, exercising, and juicing everyday. It can be difficult to be patient and wait to see a change, but it's part of the healing journey.

Power Quotes From Liana Werner-Gray

[tweetthis]"The healthier we are internally, the healthier the choices we will make in every aspect of our lives." - @TheEarthDieter  [/tweetthis]

  • "It is easier to achieve a natural lifestyle when you are surrounded by like minded people who can help hold you accountable and who also share a goal of achieving a consistent healthy lifestyle." - Liana Werner-Gray
  • “When I was alone, a sense of anxious discomfort and heaviness would come over me.
    I wrestled with thoughts of going to get a pizza or a hamburger. After awhile I'd give in and
    then be so disappointed with myself. I would think, 'I blew it! The day is already ruined! I might
    as well eat more.' " - Liana Werner-Gray on how she used to struggle with her food addiction.
  • “Getting a tumor was a blessing in disguise. It gave me the extra push I needed to make a
    real change in my life. It finally brought me to the day when I thought 'This is it!" - Liana Werner-Gray on her wake-up call to live a healthier life.
  • "The best possible way to eat and be healthy is to be connected with the earth, to be in harmony with the earth, and to literally take food from our backyard. That's how we get the most nutritious value and a high vibration energy as well from food." - Liana Werner-Gray on how we can be more connected with nature through food. 
  • "At every single meal and drink, just think to yourself, 'Okay, how much nutrition am I actually getting from this right now?' The idea of The Earth Diet is to get nutrition at every single meal and with every single drink." - Liana Werner-Gray on how The Earth Diet can help you re-think your meals to make sure they're always nutritious. 
  • "Trust the body because the body will crave protein, fats, and oils. If you're craving those fried foods, there's a good chance that you're craving those fats for your brain. So instead of french fries, you could get healthy fat from avocados, chia seeds, or flax seeds." - Liana Werner- Gray on making the switch from junk food to natural foods when we have specific cravings.
  • "If I'm going to live to be 80 or 90 years old, I want to continue this practice of 1 hour Body Maintenance each day because until then I want to be flexible, enjoy good posture, and be in good physical shape for the rest of my life." - Liana Werner-Gray on the benefits of spending one hour each day to Body Maintenance. 
  • "The purpose of Mirror Work is to stand in front of the mirror and accept who we are. When I do Mirror Work, I discover things that I don't like about my physical appearance, but I know that I need to accept them to create this rich inner world and peace inside of myself." - Liana Werner-Gray on the benefits of doing Mirror Work. 
  • "We can't go wrong with eating nutritious foods every single day. We can't go wrong with eating more fresh foods that come straight from our backyard. And we can't go wrong with have fresh juice every single day." - Liana Werner-Gray on the importance of following a healthy, natural diet. 
  • "We all want the same thing. We're all striving for this soul journey to feel peace, full self-expression, and love. Even if we're addicted to it, nobody wants pain and suffering. Every single person wants to heal and stop what's making them suffer. We're all looking for something that can make us feel better and help us heal." - Liana Werner-Gray on what she's noticed is common among people from all over the world after visiting 17 different countries.

The wiring of our limbic system is strung pretty tightly from infancy. If your Mama made lots of eye contact, you’re probably in the clear: The integrity of that wiring comes from early experiences of bonding, emotional closeness, security, and trust.

But unlike more recently evolved parts of our brain that constantly learn and change, our limbic system is a tough nut to crack.

One of the only things that can change our limbic response is other people.

We sync up to, adjust, and strengthen the systems of others through limbic regulation.

How To Wire Your Limbic System For Love

Like mind control, limbic regulation is the ability to “adjust and fortify one another’s fragile neural rhythms in the collaborative dance of love.” Relationships exist in open-loops and are reciprocal exchanges that constantly regulate the physiologies of its participants.

Psychologists poetically describe limbic regulation as a “shimmering conduit” to “tinker with one another’s psychology.”

We intermingle our rhythms and energies to regulate each other. Think of how powerful that is. Our physical body affects and is affected by other physical bodies. Consider yourself a source of energetic radioactivity.

You, by being you, impact another’s experience of themselves. This brings new light to the saying, “Who we are depends in part on who we love.”

This interview was inspired by Jessica's insightful and though provoking article "Wire Your Limbic System For Love

Have you ever found yourself taking inspired action towards a new workout program or training regimen, only to wind up succumbing to an injury that keeps you from progressing? Have you ever been curious as to why some people get injured far more than others?

Exercise scientists and anatomists have been writing for centuries about the power of exercise as medicine, not only for cardiovascular heath, optimal strength, and blood circulation, but essentially for a better quality of life, supported through a body that can withstand the demands of our modern, sedentary, and even sometimes even over-trained population.

In the USA, where desk posture and upper cross syndrome are affecting millions of men and women every year, what are the fundamentals we can all do at any age or athletic ability to progress our training, flexibility, and fortify our muscles to prevent injury?

Injury Prevention Through DCT

 

Today on the podcast, we're learning about a training technique called DCT or Dynamic Contraction Technique, that addresses these questions and much more from our friend, Licensed Physical Therapist and Founder of The National Resistance Stretching Association, Nic Bartolotta.

We're delving into new topics like flexibility vs. flex-ability, how to properly train our muscles using eccentric loading, and why Nic believes from working with thousands of clients and some of the top stars in the NBA that we all have what he calls a "second heart" in our lower extremities, and what stretching this second heart can do for our overall movement quality and wellness.

If you've ever had an injury or circulation issue that sidelined you on your wellness journey, or if you've been looking for a way to build up the proper range of motion without compensating your joints, this is going to be an insightful and thought provoking episode.

Be sure to listen until the end of the show where Nic discusses how to train flexibility using the ProFlex and RolFlex, and listen as he uncovers the most common mistakes that people make when training flexibility in new exercise programs.

He'll also finally answer the question that so many fitness pros have debated for years:

When exactly is the best time to stretch? And his answers may surprise you.

Stretching Your Second Heart

Can stretching mean more to our health than just something we do to warm up, cool down, or relax the body?

When was the last time you took time out of your day to focus on your body and stretch? Whether you constantly work out, have an active job, or work all day at a desk, stretching has this incredible power to heal our bodies.

At the age of 19, Nic Bartolotta was simply told by doctors that after years of gymnastics and diving, there was no more cartilage in his left knee and therefore no solution to his injury. However, Nic didn't believe that was possible and turned to both alternative medicine and resistance training to help him fix his knee. With passion and continuous persistence, Nic is changing the way we see stretching and physical therapy.

On today's episode of Wellness Force Radio,  Nic will share with us how proper stretching, leg movements, and exercise can help power the "second heart" in our calf muscles aka the soleus muscle.

Get ready to heal, relax, and strengthen your body through restrictive stretching. 

Listen to Episode 113 as Nic Uncovers:

  • How his personal background became a huge part of developing his professional career in alternative medicine and resistance training.
  • The challenge to find the right answers in order to fix Nic's knee.
  • Common misconceptions about what stretching actually is and how to properly do it.
  • What is DCT and what are the benefits?
  • What is myofascia and how can a massage heal other parts of the body because it connects every tissue of the body.
  • Which stretches can affect the myofascia or general muscles?
  • The difference between the fascial tension and muscle tension.
  • Why the calf and the lower leg is considered "the second heart" of the body.
  • How to reach out to a professional to help you with restrictive stretching and DCT.
  • What you can do on your own to improve your restrictive stretching and DCT ability.
  • The wide use of DCT tools like the ProFlex even among professional basketball players.
  • Flexibility vs Flex-Ability: what's the difference and how does Flex-Ability apply to everyone?
  • What creates knots and muscle tension in our bodies?
  • Common mistakes people make when beginning a new exercise.
  • When is the best time to stretch?

3 Takeaways From The Show

  • Physical movement throughout the day is important to ensure that we're pumping blood from our calves (the soleus muscle) back to our heart. Every time you run, jog, or just walk, you're working your second heart.
  • If we can learn how to treat our injuries on our own with different tools on a daily basis, this can be more efficient than going to see a physical therapist several times a week. Not that we don't need to see a specialist if we do have an injury, but it's so beneficial to our overall health when we have the ability to know what our bodies want and need.
  • Passive stretching is not as beneficial for our bodies as we might have once believed. What's better for our bodies is active stretching and always feeling at least a bit of tension in our muscles when we stretch.

Power Quotes From Nic Bartolotta

[tweetthis]"The ability to be able to flex a muscle is actually far more important than the ability to lengthen a muscle." - Nic Bartolotta [/tweetthis]

  • "When I initially started to work with clients, they would come in with all of these beliefs about muscle tension and stretching. Through this dialogue process, I would show and prove to them what stretching is supposed to feel like and what's possible in the body. After explaining all of that to them, they could never go back again to their original thoughts about stretching." - Nic Bartolotta on helping his clients to better understand the process of stretching through DCT. 
  • "Most people believe that stretching is supposed to be painful and that the sharp pain you feel when you relax into a stretch is what you're supposed to accomplish. However, when you resist with a muscle during the stretch and you don't relax, the muscle actually protects you from that pain. That pain is your guideline for how far you should go during the stretch." - Nic Bartolotta on common misconceptions about stretching. 
  • "With this understanding of how tension can affect blood circulation, you can turn your attention towards what it takes to mitigate problems and injuries." - Nic Bartolotta from his article,  Stretching Your Second Heart
  • "The calf or the lower leg is full of capillary beds and vascular veins so when you walk, jog, or run, the soleus muscle in your calf is pumping blood out of your legs and into your heart." - Nic Bartolotta on why the calf muscle, the soleus, is like our second heart. 
  • "If a person has edema, all they have to do is pump their ankles a bit to get the blood in the soleus muscle circulating again. However, if the soleus is so restricted with fascial or muscle tension, it won't be able to pump blood to the heart and that's when we want to use restrictive stretching and exercise." - Nic Bartolotta on what can happen if the soleus muscle is restricted and how restrictive stretching and exercise can help. 
  • "With the word, "flexibility," people think of someone who can lengthen their muscles or be able to do the splits. However, if we break up the word and change it into "flex-ability," flex means to flex or to shorten a muscle. The ability to be able to flex a muscle is actually far more important than the ability to lengthen a muscle." - Nic Bartolotta on the difference between Flexibility and Flex-Ability. 
  • "We can avoid traumatic injuries by looking at which joints need to flex and shorten versus which muscles need to lengthen and we get far more results when we do that." - Nic Bartolotta on the importance of joint flexing vs. muscle lengthening. 
  • "Going to physical therapy two or three times a week is good, but to learn how to do certain things on your own and to be able to do them a couple of times a day, is how you're really going to change your body." - Nic Bartolotta on the power of taking change into your own hands to heal your body.
  • "Passive stretching is absolutely something that should never be down before or after stretching. You should never completely relax a muscle into a stretch. You should always hold at least a little bit of tension in the muscle because that's going to tell you whether or not you're beyond your range of motion. If you can't contract a muscle, you shouldn't be in that position in the first place. " - Nic Bartolotta on how we should be stretching and how to do know if we're doing it right. 
  • "If I can go out there and change one person's perspective on health, than I can affirm with myself that I'm doing the right thing." - Nic Bartolotta's personal mantra. 

About Nic Bartolotta

Nic Bartolotta is the founder of the national resistance stretching association, and is a licensed physical therapist and holistic health practitioner specially trained as a flexibility and myofascial release expert. He is the co-founder of Range of Motion Products, maker of the Rolflex, and the creator of Dynamic Contraction Technique (DCT).

Nic got his start in alternative health as an injured athlete when he was 19, and fell in love with the profession and successfully resolved his own knee injury in 2001. So for the past 17 years plus, Nic has dedicated his life to learning about the body and pushing the limits of human performance by applying the principals of DCT to his own training and that of his clients and patients, including NBA favorites from the LA Lakers, Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks, and others

For episode 002 of Wellness Force Friday, we're talking with Syanna Wand, a certified nutritional therapy practitioner who coaches women through the process of letting go of anxiety and stress.

About Syanna Wand

From www.syannawand.com

"I'm Syanna, a Women's Stress and Anxiety Coach, and I'm thrilled to meet you! 

If you've ended up on my page, chances are you're searching for some answers and relief, and I'm here to tell you that you're in just the right place. 

Several years ago, I went through some incredibly painful and intense health issues which, as it turned out, stemmed from the stress and anxiety that plagued my mind and body on daily basis. In other words, my stress was killing me, and that's not a dramatization! 

Thankfully, I've always been pretty stubborn and determined, so I set out on a journey that would not only end up curing my life-long struggle with fear, worry and sickness, but also landed me right, square-middle in the life of my dreams, helping and guiding other women on the same path to total health and wellness. 

I believe in using a gentle combination of nutrition, exercise, mindset work and spiritual practices to bring your body and mind back into alignment and bring out the beautiful, stress-free woman inside of you who's just waiting to be set free! 

Even if you're thinking that you could NEVER imagine a life without overwhelm and angst, I assure you it's possible. I went from barely being able to get out of bed, obsessively worrying about my health, ruining all my closest relationships and having 7-8 anxiety attacks a day to absolutely thriving in and loving my life.

If I can do it, so can you."

Rediscover Your Intuition Through Primal Living: 

Is our modern environment taking a too large of a toll on our physical, emotional, and mental health? Has the digital age led us to lose our primal intuition?

JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | REVIEW THIS PODCAST

Are we relying on technology too much to the point that we need data to tell us whether or not we've slept well, exercised enough, or become relaxed?

From a young age, health and fitness expert, author, and founder of  both Primal Blueprint and Primal Kitchen, Mark Sisson of Mark's Daily Apple, has spent his life actively seeking information to help people live a long, healthy life. Today on Wellness Force Radio, he's sharing what it means to follow a primal life, an insight look into his upcoming book, Go Keto, and how to follow the Ten Guidelines of the Primal Blueprint Ethos.

Just because there's an app for anything and everything, it doesn't mean that we have to solely rely on technology to help us improve our mind, body, and emotional wellness. After all, our primal ancestors never had to rely on an app to help them survive so why should we?

As humans, it's in our nature to know, intuitively, exactly what we need. Whether it be nutrition, fitness, or sleep, our intuition knows what's best for us.

Paleo f(x)

In our modern and tech-focused society, this episode could not come at a better time. If you're like me, you've been using technology more and more every day for your wellness, health and fitness, and also online through social media to connect with people.

But in this world of online likes, shares, and facebook friends as well as conscious health tracking through wearables, a bigger question arises: have we lost touch with our most primal selves, the part of us that intuitively knows exactly how to form real, face to face personal connections, and in our ways of eating, moving, and sleeping for a life of wellness?

Today on the podcast, we're answering these questions and learning about how to create and sustain a primal lifestyle in this modern world from health and fitness expert, Mark Sisson.

Get ready for an in-depth and thought-provoking conversation with one of the most popular and profound influencers in our wellness world where we dive into topics like carbohydrate intake, fat adaptation, gene signaling and epigenetics, as well as Mark's personal ethos and story about how he overcame his own health issues to found Mark's Daily Apple, Primal Blueprint, and Primal Kitchen.

Power Quotes From Mark Sisson

[tweetthis] "Primal living allows you to develop the skills you need to get in touch with your body and  emotions." - @Mark_Sisson [/tweetthis]

  • "I may have looked fit on the outside, but I was falling apart in the inside. There was this inflammation that was gathering and building inside my body. I had osteoarthritis in my feet, tendinitis in my hips, and even irritable bowl syndrome (IBS) which pretty much dictated my life. I began this diet to be healthy, but all of a sudden, I was at the unhealthiest point of my life. I had no idea about what was going with my body." - Mark Sisson on his personal experience with the negative impact of following high complex carbohydrate diet. 
  • "It fascinates me that there are now 35 different wearable devices that tell you how poorly you slept last night, but there's nothing out there to really address the problem. I try to create an intuitive sense about my body's needs and I try to coach people to do the same." - Mark Sisson on the power of intuitive sense to help us understand our minds and bodies to make beneficial changes for our health. 
  • "Primal living means that you've dialed into several different aspects of your life so that you don't have to stop and ask a device, "What do I do now?" You get to the point when you know what to do and what choices to make. Your intuitive decision making process is going to serve you in that moment and in the best way possible." - Mark Sisson on what primal living means and how our intuitive sense can help us make the best decisions about our health. 
  • "Primal living allows you to develop the skills you need to be in touch with your body, emotions, and everything that draws us in to enjoy life." - Mark Sisson on the benefits of primal living.
  • "I don't want to ascribe genes as being 'good' or 'bad.' Genes are just doing what they're told to do. When you develop Type 2 Diabetes, that's not because of 'bad genetics. That happens because your human genes are addressing a problem that you've created with your eating and moving habits. Your body is just trying to prevent you from dying too soon from too much sugar." - Mark Sisson on why we shouldn't categorize genes as being 'good' or 'bad.'
  • "The Paleo and Primal diets are converging. Initially, the Paleo Diet was only a diet that looked at no dairy, alcohol, very low unsaturated fats, and was fairly restrictive. When I came up with the Primal Blueprint, I wanted to create a place where people could go and not feel excluded, but invited. So we included as many foods that made sense so we don't exclude dairy like cream, butter, artisanal cheese, and even whole milk for some people. Paleo has always been about the diet, but Primal includes the entire lifestyle." - Mark Sisson on the difference between the Primal Blueprint and Paleo Diets and lifestyles. 
  • "Thoughts are just thoughts and they're not reality. What we worry or agonize about only exists in our minds as imagination. My wife, Carrie, keeps reminding me that when I let those thoughts dictate how I feel in the present moment, they actually take me out of the present moment." - Mark Sisson on what he's learned from his wife, Carrie, about emotional wellness and intelligence. 
  • "Wellness is more of a state of mind than a physical presence. Wellness is this feeling of serenity and peace, but also the ability to not be caught up in feelings of worry, anger, or angst. Wellness is not about re-thinking about previous decisions or past mistakes. It's about being in the present moment and therefore being able to extract the greatest amount of contentment, joy, and fulfillment from now." - Mark Sisson on what wellness means to him.

With the vast ocean of an industry that exceeds 122 billion dollars of supplements, pills, powders and elixirs in our wellness world, just exactly how do we decipher which things will actually work for the path we are walking in our personal wellness journey?

An even better question is how do we know which supplements to trust and what natural plant-based adaptogens will give us more sustained energy throughout the day?

JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | REVIEW THIS PODCAST

It should not come as a shock to anyone that the weight of our current responsibilities in this modern world are growing more every day. Combine this fact with all the social media, electronic, and technology distractions that pull us away from living a life of optimal wellness, and then how can we hit the reset button without wearing a bathrobe in the mountains for 5 days? (JK) :)

To help transcend overwhelm and excess stress, today on the podcast we're talking about the natural ways we can modulate stress and help to normalize our bodies by finding more balance.

We're talking with my good friend, Nutritional Therapist, and Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner, Evan Brand, about using adaptogens; natural and phyto-therapeutic uses of plants to help us heal and give us more energy.

Functional Medicine Through An Ancestral Lens

If you been listening to the podcast for a while, you know that I've been a huge fan of Rhodiola Rosea as well as Maca for energy, so today on the podcast, if you've been curious about using adaptogens for wellness and energy this is going to be an awesome show for you.

I know you're going to love (just as much as I did) Evan's down-home, grounded and authentic personality where we dive into topics like functional medicine through an ancestral lens, how to get back in touch with your inner dialogue, letting go of "paralysis by analysis," what adaptogens and supplements are best to take with you while traveling, and one of my most favorite seven for seven rounds we've had yet on the show.

Be sure to stick around to hear Evan's take on the emotional quotient in letting go of old weight and how to use plants to give the type of healing that could never be produced in a lab.

What Are Adaptogens?

  • Adaptogens: Modulate stress responses and can help normalize body imbalances. By supporting adrenal function, they counteract the adverse effects of stress.
  • They enable the body's cells to access more energy; help cells eliminate toxic byproducts of the metabolic process and help the body to utilize oxygen more efficiently.
  • Phytotherapy refers to the use of plants for their healing abilities. Adaptogens are a unique class of healing plants: They help balance, restore and protect the body.
  • As naturopath Edward Wallace explains, "An adaptogen doesn’t have a specific action: It helps you respond to any influence or stressor, normalizing your physiological functions."

Top 9 Adaptogens

  1. Rhodioloa Rosea: boosts endurance and fights depression (golden root)
  2. Ashwaghanda: helps to promote healthy levels of energy and sleep
  3. Schisandra berry: lowers inflammation, supports adrenal health, improves liver and digestion
  4. Maca: helps with reducing fatigue, enhancing energy and endurance
  5. Cordyceps: considered the “ginseng of mushrooms” and are known to have a truly awesome effect on endurance and stamina
  6. Holy Basil: has been found in many studies to be equivalent to many modern painkillers
  7. Ginseng: panax ginseng roots are proven anti-inflammatory, can regulate blood sugar and can even inhibit some characteristics associated with cancer.
  8. Reishi Mushroom: traditional Chinese medicine uses reishi to "calm the spirit." Reishi, (literally "supernatural" mushrooms) have been used for more than 2,000 years, making them perhaps the oldest mushroom to be used medicinally. They can be helpful to reduce anxiety, alleviate insomnia, combat fatigue, and lower blood pressure. Shawn Stevenson calls this "the mushroom of immortality”
  9. Licorice Root: increases energy, increase immune function

Listen to Episode 111 As Evan Uncovers:

  • What it means to look at functional medicine through an ancestral lens.
  • How Evan helps his clients through functional medicine and different tests.
  • What we can do to get back in touch with our human nature by getting rid of WiFi, blue light, and spending time with nature.
  • Evan's experience working for 21st Century Parks and how he fell in love with nature and forest bathing.
  • How to ingest adaptogens for optimal benefits to combat stress, fatigue, and enhance performance
  • What are the best adaptogens to help manage anxiety?
  • How to use natural ways of living and being to support homeostasis in the body.
  • Why more problems come from over researching and "information overload" which creates analysis paralysis that make people avoid doing anything.
  • What are the top three Adaptogens for balancing the body and nervous system: Perfect Acai Revive: Rhodiola Rosea, Cordyceps, Grape Seed Extract
  • The best foods and supplements to take on the road when traveling
  • How CBD oil and other healing modalities can support the well-being of those suffering from cancer and various health disorders
  • The right types of mindset and emotional intelligence that makes a difference when overcoming a chronic disease

111 Evan Brand: Adaptogens For Wellness & Energy

May 2, 2017

Creating happiness in our lives, especially in this fast-paced modern industrialized world, can be a challenge.

Today on the podcast we're both honored and excited to share with you one of the most inspirational men in the health and fitness world, Bedros Keuilian, to share with us his incredible story and leadership insight garnered from over two decades where he cerated what he calls "The Immigrant Edge & The American Dream," built on the four pillars of happiness that Bedros has learned apply to all of us:

Money, meaning, health, and relationships, and the balance of all four is what truly creates a life of abundance and wellness that we all deserve, but getting there and working to maintain, is not a linear process for us, and definitely was not for Bedros.

JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | REVIEW THIS PODCAST

As you'll discover in this powerful conversation, where Bedros not only shares with us vulnerably, authentically, and powerfully about what he's overcome in life to create a global fitness empire, but how we can connect the dots and shine light on the contrast in our universal human journey. (that we all walk on this wellness path)

That is, how to overcome obstacles, and the mindset and ways of being we all can apply no matter what our past, because the story ahead of us is the one we write with the pen in our hand in this moment, right here, right now.

If you're open to inspiration, this episode is going to deliver on how we can become more emotionally resilient and apply these four fundamental pillars of happiness in our lives, no matter what the current reality.

Happiness, The Immigrant Edge, and the American Dream

Anger, guilt, confusion, and shame.

These were all emotions that Bedros Keuilian felt as he worked with his therapist to reconnect with the little boy he once was in Armenia during the Soviet Union era.

When Bedros was able to check in with himself and his subconscious thoughts, he discovered that his Immigrant Edge, American Dream, and self-belief are his tools to use for success, confidence, and happiness.

How can we let go of the past in order to regain happiness, inner strength, and self-fulfillment?

When we don't push forward in our lives, we may be pulled back into feeling negative emotions such as frustration, depression, and anxiety.

On today's episode of Wellness Force Radio, one of the fitness industry's most trusted consultant as well as both the Founder and CEO of Fit Body Boot Camp and creator of the Fitness Business Summit, Bedros Keuilian, shares with us how we become emotionally resilient, discover adversity, and live the life that we want through The 4 Pillars of Happiness and HALT:

The 4 Pillars of Happiness:

  1. Money
  2. Meaning
  3. Health
  4. Relationships

Beat anxiety with HALT:

  • Hungry
  • Angry
  • Lonely
  • Tired

When you stop feelings of hunger, anger, loneliness, and being tired, you can also beat anxiety in its tracks.

This episode is a wonderful reminder that without the knowledge of self, we can't have money, meaning, health, or relationships.

Listen to Episode 110 as Bedros Uncovers:

  • Why Bedros identifies with the title as someone who "has the Immigrant Edge and the American Dream."
  • What is the "Immigration Edge" and why is it so important?
  • How Bedros teaches his clients about emotional resilience.
  • What Bedros did to change the money story that he previously knew of as a child.
  • Why Bedros now sees money as a point system that helps him elevate the kind of impacting he's making with his career.
  • How Bedros went from being $127,000 in debt to becoming debt-free and serving so many people through his business.
  • The business and life lessons that Bedros learned from his father by spending time in his tailor shop and seeing how he treated customers.
  • Bedros' 4 Pillars of Happiness
  • Why enough is never enough: you can always work harder to accomplish greater goals.
  • Why Bedros chose to work in the fitness industry to help gyms and entrepreneurs give their clients a better service.
  • How we can let go of anger and resentment to live a happier and successful life.
  • How Bedros' therapist was able to help him beat his anxiety with HALT.
  • The importance of dominating your life path and future by having closure with your past.
  • Why pushing forward and being productive helps us to be happy.
  • Why you "can't cut your family, but you can edit your relationship with them" and what it looks like.
  • Berdos' advice on why you don't have to talk about your next career, project, or goal with your family when you visit with them.
  • How we can let go from people who trigger our negative emotions? How can we keep calm and move forward with what we want to do with our lives?

Top 3 Takeaways From The Show

  • When you want to start a new project, a career, or make a major life change, there will be people out there you will tell you that you can't do it or it's not a good idea. A lot of times, those people are our families and they will go against our dreams because they don't want us to fail. However, if you have a goal that you want to accomplish, you're more likely to do it when you don't tell your family about it. Don't tell you family about your business because they will probably only have negative thoughts about it. Instead, talk to people who are going to get excited with you and are there to encourage your dream.
  • When we are emotionally resilient and have experienced adversity, it is easier for us to let go from people and situations that trigger our negative emotions.  Experiencing a difficult moment can help us keep calm and move forward with our lives.
  • If you're feeling overwhelmed and stressed, it's okay to hit the pause button. Go ahead to cancel and schedule that meeting or task. If you want to succeed, put your self first and take care of yourself both emotionally and physically.

Power Quotes From Bedros Keuilian

[tweetthis] "If you grow your emotional and adversity quotient, you will be a well-rounded human that can deal with anything." - @BedrosKeuilian [/tweetthis]

  • "The immigrant edge mentality is about getting resourceful when you don't have any resources. You realize that no matter how bad things get in the USA, they're still better than in any other place in the world." - Bedros Keuilian on how he gained the Immigrant Edge during his transition from Armenia to the USA.
  • "Even if you have a job, go start a side project, be part of a charity, or do something like build a house in a third-world country with Habitat for Humanity. These experiences will give you the environmental exposure that allows you to build your emotional resiliency and adversity. If you can grow your emotional and adversity quotient, you will be a well-rounded human that can deal with any adversity or difficult factor when it comes. Not if it comes, but when it comes because stressful events are sure to come in anyone's life." - Bedros Keuilian on how to build emotional resiliency and adversity.
  • "Adversity is an advantage and I started to re-frame my thinking about negative factors. Anything bad that happens is actually a learning lesson towards something better." - Bedros Keuilian on the power of adversity.
  • "Enough is never enough. I'm going to keep doing what I'm doing forever because I know that if I don't focus on dominating my path and my purpose, I will go deep into my darkness and the monster will come out. I will begin to think about what happened to me as a kid in Armenia." - Bedros Keuilian on the importance of doing what you love to do and how it helps to keep you moving forward.
  •  "When you are hungry, angry, lonely, or tired, it's so easy for your body to manifest anxiety and that's what happened to me. If I can stop myself from feeling those emotions, I can stop my anxiety in its tracks." - Bedros Keuilian on his therapist teaching him about HALT and how it helped him with his anxiety and negative emotions.
  • "It's highly important to process the negativity in your life. Negativity thoughts are like a computer virus. They may go into isolation, but you can never completely kill a computer virus and there's new software to cover it up. The moment you stop updating your software, that virus might just come back out again. Stay on your path of domination and do good because the moment you don't, you can go inward into the darkness and try to find problems that we need to  be"fixed" when in reality you're just delving into depression." -Bedros Keuilian on fighting negative thoughts and staying strong.
