Forrest Knutson is an expert teacher (and still a student) of meditation. He left the safety of the ashram to pursue a self-reliant life as a yogi householder.

Through a lifetime of meditation and study Forrest observed key elements of meditation and simplified them so that anyone who applied themselves could learn and achieve a successful meditative state.

Today Forrest teaches through his books and online through video training available in the Learn True Health’s membership.

Here’s What You’ll Discover:
The #1 most important thing to do in life.
Understanding how we think and how we can change our behaviors
Prayer before and after medication is a form of protection
Prayer and meditation are related
Holy saints would meditate

Health AH-HA Moment:
Four days of practicing meditation decrease our stress hormones by 25%!

Your Challenge:
Every day find time to practice your double breathing. At a stoplight, at work, before bed, are all good times to remember to double breathe.

This is the list of items I keep in my medicine cabinet in case I, or someone I care about, catches a cold.  I have found it to be very helpful to have all of these items on hand so at the first sign of a sore throat or sniffles I can begin to use these supplements and protocols to help my body fight off the germs as fast as possible. I have witnessed natural medicine working much faster and more efficiently than over the counter symptom suppressing drugs!

All of these items and how to use them were taught to me by Naturopathic Doctors.

1. Organic Elder Berry Extract: http://amzn.to/1qVicMH

2. Organic Throat Coat Tea: http://amzn.to/1qViKSG

3. Nasal Colloidal Silver Spray: http://amzn.to/1qViZ0g

5. Neti Pod Kit: http://amzn.to/1qVk7Rw

6. For the 90 Essential Nutrients, Killer Biotic and the essential oil blends (1st Defence and To Be Well) Visit http://takeyoursupplements.com


Chat with a True Health Coach. They will help you order the right supplements for you!

7. Diet:
These tips are what I have gathered from several top holistic doctors. When you need to boost your immune system:
Avoid sugar, including grains, fruit and juice.
Eat organic
Increase healthy protein, like eggs, free-range chicken, beef and broth.
Eat more leafy green veggies
Avoid processed food. If it comes in a package and has ingredients you don't recognise as organic, don't eat it.

Or put another way, if it is a plant, eat it. If it comes from a (manufacturing) plant...Don't eat it.

Immune Boosting Activities:

Cold Wet Socks:
1. Drench your cotton socks in cold water or yarrow tea then stick them in the freezer.

2. Take a very hot bath or shower for 20 minutes. Feel free to add the Youngevity essential oil blends I mentioned above in your bath. Ten drops should work.

3. Take the now frozen wet socks and put them on your toasty warm feet and cover the wet cotton socks with dry wool socks.

4. Keep both pairs of socks on and go to bed.

When you wake up your feet will be warm and you’ll feel a lot better than you did the night before.

5. Repeat the wet sock treatment for three nights in a row for best results.

Neti Pot (Nasal Irrigation):
Follow instructions that come with your Neti Pot.

Essential Oil Steam Inhaler:
1. Boil water
2. Remove from heat and pour the water into a large bowl.
3. Add 2 drops of Olbas essential oil.
4. Cover your head and the bowl with a large bath towel
5. Place your face above the bowl and far enough away so the steam doesn't burn you.
6. Inhale the hot steam for 3 minutes.
7. Add another 2 or 3 drops and repeat until the water has cooled down.
8. Repeat several times a day. Follow up with a neti pot, blowing your nose and then colloidal silver nasal spray.

Here’s What You’ll Discover:
What is Kombucha
What is Kefir
How to improve your gut health
What is our body's biome
How to eat foods that will increase probiotics in your gut naturally

Health AH-HA Moment:
Fermented food has been in the diet of every ancient culture. Only in the last 50 years have we decreased our consumption of live, cultured foods. These fermented foods give our gut the healthy probiotics we need for optimal health!

Foods like:
Sauerkraut
Pickled veggies (cucumbers, garlic, beets, radish, etc)
Korean kimchi
Kefir (can be made from dairy or coconut milk)
Kombucha
Yogurt  (can be made from coconut, almond, cow milk, etc)

Your Challenge:
Drink Kombucha (or Kiefer) every day for 1 month and see if you notice a difference in your digestion and immune function.

Do not do this if you know you have a yeast overgrowth, SIBO, or you are pregnant.

If you have taken an antibiotic in the last 5 years you can benefit from taking a probiotic supplement.

Steve Flansbaum is back on the show! Steve is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, NASM Certified Personal Trainer and has earned his MS in Professional Counseling and Theory.

Steve offers a workshop called "Thinking Your Way Into a Thinner Body" so if you would like to attend his workshop for free, or work with him one-on-one, please contact him by visiting: http://www.steveflansbaum.com/new-page/

In this podcast, Steve shares how our body image and our relationship with our body can easily be distorted by our mind. We think this is just a problem women have but men are just as prone to body dysmorphia. Looking in the mirror and obsessing over a flaw that isn’t there.  Men want to be taller with more muscles and as Steve points out, he gained 100lbs of muscle body building and when he looked in the mirror his mind could not let him see his accomplishment, only his believe that it wasn’t enough.

It will never be enough until you heal the relationship with yourself.

Steve shares that the relationship to our behavior needs to change. The language we use, the identity we form, around our problem is a good place to start.  You will stay, “This is my arm. I have an arm.” But when it comes to fat we say “I am fat”.  It has become that person’s identity.  If it’s their belief system they will always hold onto that problem and beat themselves up over that problem when they look in the mirror no matter how much weight they lose.

If you change your relationship to the problem in order to solve the problem.

Our habits are our continuous behaviors that result in our health.  If we want to make permanent health changes we need to start from within so we can affect our environment and our habits to align with our health goals.

Steve shares that this isn’t about beating yourself up or killing ourselves at the gym. Having understanding, compassion and love for yourself is one of his first steps.

If we would look at how we treat ourselves like how two people treat each other we would realize that we are in an abusive relationship with ourselves! 

Here’s What You’ll Discover:

  • How to begin to change your relationship you have with your body image
  • Steps to forgiving and trusting yourself again
  • How to make your choices be around your strengths so you have the most willpower you can
  • Loving your life and living your passion

Health AH-HA Moment:

Exercise choice where we have it. Knowing where you do have a choice and avoiding environments where you know you will give into what you do not want to give into. This is one way you can nurture yourself and build trust with yourself again.

Said another way, if you had a close friend who was a recovering alcoholic you wouldn’t ask them to go to the liquor store with you, so why do you walk down the aisle at the grocery store that contains the foods you want to avoid and then beat yourself up when you put them in your cart. Or if you are trying to quit smoking, pay for your gas outside so you don’t give yourself the opportunity to be confronted at the cash register by the cigarettes for sale.

Take a step back and find where you do have willpower. If you don’t go down the aisle you won’t force yourself into that situation. Treat yourself with the same love and respect you would treat a friend.

 

Your Challenge:

Check out Steve’s website and give him a call. He can do Skype consultations and help you shift your internal and external environment to be in alignment with your health goals.

April Haugen earned her Master of Science in Midwifery and Bachelor of Science in Herbal Science from Bastyr University in 2014. Between 2010 and 2014 she attended over 160 births as a student midwife.  And from the year 2000 till now she has also been working as a doula.
April is trained in herbal medicine and uses its ability to support the body’s natural healing in her midwifery care.

Her master thesis was titled “Using herbal medicine for labor induction and augmentation: An evidence-based practice guideline for Licensed Midwives”

It’s shocking to her that nationwide the C-section rate in the United States is almost 40%.  It’s ridiculous to look at a room with 10 pregnant women and believe that 4 of them need a C-section.  

Because our medical system is a for profit system we cannot always trust that our doctor or hospital has our best interests at heart. That is one of the many reasons why having a midwife and doula when going through your pregnancy, will help you have the best outcome possible.

The United States, a country that is #1 out of 175 countries on spending the most amount of money on healthcare ranks 38th out of 175 countries for infant mortality!  There is something wrong here.  

Statistically, working with a midwife and doula will decrease your chances of needing other medical interventions like C-section or pain management, like an epidural. Epidurals increase the chance of needing a C-section and C-sections increase the chance of both mother and baby experiencing life-threatening complications and death.

April shares that when a woman feels supported during her birth she is statistically less likely to need or want medical interventions, thus one of the ways these holistic health practitioners help to decrease infant mortality.

Here’s What You’ll Discover:
•    How to have a positive birth experience
•    What is a doula
•    What is a midwife
•     How women can decrease their chances of having a C-section by creating a supportive team around her and her partner.
•    What is going on in the mainstream medical system that isn’t working around giving birth and what we can learn from midwives to decrease needing medical interventions like C-section and epidurals.


Health AH-HA Moment:

Start interviewing and pick your midwife before becoming pregnant. Your midwife will get to know you and help you navigate your whole pregnancy and birth.

The definition of erectile dysfunction is the inability to achieve or to maintain an erection 25% to 100% of the time.

Common known causes can range from blood sugar dysregulation, kidney issues, healthy cholesterol deficiency, circulatory issues, prostate health, and stress.

Dr. Megan shares that if the ED came on suddenly to see a doctor so they can rule out nerve damage, cancer or something more serious.

Often ED is easily reversed once the root cause is discovered and the right lifestyle, nutrition and diet changes are made.


Here’s What You’ll Discover:
•    Erectile Dysfunction means there is an issue causing it that can be reversed with natural medicine and lifestyle changes.
•    Stress can cause erectile dysfunction!
•    Emotional issues like conflict at home or work can be a contributing factor to impotence.
•    What foods and supplements can help!

Your Challenge:

Eat 12 eggs a day, raw or runny yolks to get that healthy cholesterol that is the building blocks of your hormones.

Seek a Naturopathic Doctor to check your blood work and do a physical exam to help determine the root cause of your erectile dysfunction.

Blood sugar issues often lead to erectile dysfunction so cut out sugar and processed food from your diet.

Steve Flansbaum is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, NASM Certified Personal Trainer and has earned his MS in Professional Counseling and Theory.

He offers a workshop called "Thinking Your Way Into a Thinner Body" so if you would like to attend his workshop for free, or work with him one-on-one, please contact him by visiting: http://www.steveflansbaum.com/new-page/

In this interview, Steve shares his deep insights around what is not working in the $60 billion dollars a year weight loss industry and what he is doing that is effectively helping his clients get to the root cause of their weight issues.

In the weight loss industry, Steve shares, there are $60 billion dollars being spent each year and yet only a 3% to 5% success rate!  Steve has a 20% success rate with his clients but for those who stick with the program he has a 100% success rate. It’s all about sticking with it.

I asked Steve what the difference was between those who stick with it and successfully achieve their weight goals and those who drop off and do not. The difference is humility. It’s willingness to see there is a problem, to face it and ask for help and support.

Steve agrees that nutrition, diet, and exercise play a big role in achieving a healthy weight however it is our mindset, our beliefs, the lifestyle we have created for ourselves and the environment we have chosen to live in that steer our habits.

Our habits are our continuous behaviors that result in our health.  If we want to make permanent health changes we need to start from within so we can affect our environment and our habits to align with our health goals.

Steve shares that this isn’t about beating yourself up or killing ourselves at the gym. Having understanding, compassion and love for yourself is one of his first steps.

If we would look at how we treat ourselves like how two people treat each other we would realize that we are in an abusive relationship with ourselves!  


Here’s What You’ll Discover:

  • What is really driving the problem with our weight.
  • Steve shares stories of success and why they succeeded where others have not.
  • How to begin to shift your mindset towards achieving your weight loss goals.

Health AH-HA Moment:
Weight is a result of a symptom. The symptom is the habits. The habits associated with diet, nutrition and exercise have to do with how our life is set up, meaning our internal and external environment.

Our internal environment is made up of our beliefs about ourselves and our life, our mindset and emotions.
 
My habits are a direct response to my environment. To change habits, change the environment so I am not automatically responding in that way.

Your Challenge:
Check out Steve’s website and give him a call. He can do Skype consultations and help you shift your internal and external environment to be in alignment with your health goals.

Patti Davis is back on the show to discuss life skills that can be learned from seeing a licensed mental health counselor.  She uses adventure therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical family systems, Gestalt and play therapy with people of all ages to help them overcome issues such as grief, low self-esteem, stress, anxiety, depression and more. Patti is an expert in emotional health and the mind-body connection. 

In Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) Patti is able to help her clients learn valuable life skills like learning how to ask for what you want, mindfulness and bearing pain skillfully. Mindfulness, in particular, is a valuable life skill because it helps us focus in the moment on the task at hand.

Anxiety comes from living in the future and depression comes from living in the past, Patti shares. Mindfulness helps us live in the present moment, thus avoiding those negative emotions.

Overall Patti has observed that the life skills her clients learn have led to them thriving emotionally, mentally and physically.  Patti believes that everyone can benefit from having a good counselor on their side.

You can use counseling to learn and implement new life skills, become better professionally, improve relationships, communication and have a neutral, unbiased, sounding board for when you need someone to objectively listen to your problems.

Here’s What You’ll Discover:

  • How to learn how to bear pain skillfully
  • You don’t need to be “sick” to see a therapist. You can go to a counselor for life skills and preventive emotional health care.
  • How to pick a counselor.
  • Why Gold Standard Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is the best counseling for those seeking optimal health.
  • How to eliminate anxiety and depression.

Health AH-HA Moment:

Watch your language. Come from “I”. Instead of “She did this to me” or “You made me feel…” Say “I felt upset when you…”

Instead of “but” say “and”. But means you negate one thought for the other.  And means you can be both things. “A parent can be gentle and firm.”

Your Challenge:   

Every morning and night think of 10 things for which you are grateful. You cannot be stuck in negative emotions when you are in gratitude.

Dr. Jenna Jorgensen, a licensed Naturopathic Physician, is back to share useful information about how to make a Natural First Aid kit and what holistic home remedies should we have in our home medicine cabinet.  

She discusses goldenseal, bentonite clay, Kinesio tape, homeopathic remedies, essential oils and natural mosquito repellent!


In the home, she stresses the importance of hydrotherapy, homeopathy and caster oil packs.

Here’s What You’ll Discover:
•    What to do when you feel like you are coming down with a cold or flu.
•    What you can do to improve the health of your dog or cat!
•    What are the most important items to keep in your medicine cabinet.
•    What are some of the more important things to keep in your First Aid kit.

Health AH-HA Moment:

Your life is medicine. Treat each activity and choice as though it's your medicine. Dr. Jenna asks us "Life is medicine, how do you want to live your life?"

Your Challenge:    

1) Get movement into each and every day! Walk, gym, hike or bike to work, no excuses to get your body moving.
2) Drink enough water (listen to my podcast episode with Dr. Molly on water) What we don't know is that a lot of what we eat and drink is dehydrating to our body!
3)Focus on eating a "whole food" diet. Organic, of course!  

Michael Pollan says "Eat real food. Not too much. Mostly plants."

Dr. Jenna shares some keys to eating an organic whole foods diet while being busy and on a budget! Look into subscribing to a local C.S.A box (Community Supported Agriculture) and the crock pot is your friend!

Roberta Fernandez is back on the show to share more about the power of our mind, using self-hypnosis for pain elimination and how our thoughts become things!

Roberta is most famous for helping her clients overcome chronic pain and weight problems by teaching self-hypnosis.

“There is NO pain processing center within our brain” Roberta shares. She elaborates in the interview how our nervous system processes pain and how we can easily use that when eliminating pain through self-hypnosis.

Roberta knew she wanted to help others with hypnosis after she was able to eliminate her arthritis pain completely, and again when she was able to recover from a double knee replacement surgery, using only self-hypnosis to manage the pain.

Roberta clears up the misconception that when in trance you are susceptible to taking in any suggestions, like robbing a bank. “I can’t make you rob a bank. The suggestions we take in are those that are in alignment with our morals, values, and ethics.”

 

Here’s What You’ll Discover:

  • The difference between meditation and hypnosis.
  • How to become a hypnotherapist.
  • How to find a good hypnotist in your area.
  • Hypnosis is for transformation
  • There are hypnotic techniques to help children and students learn to focus and eliminate attention issues.

 

Health AH-HA Moment:

Hypnosis is not about clearing your mind so it’s blank. Self-hypnosis is about being so focused on one thought, intention, suggestion or goal that it’s the only thing you are concentrating on.
