Release Trauma through TRE with David Berceli

It has become commonplace to talk about being “triggered.” While becoming part of the lexicon, this concept is more than just a buzzword. Acknowledging these emotional triggers provides a greater awareness of how our past can continue to affect us. PTSD, post-traumatic stress disorder, doesn’t just affect war heroes and first responders. We’ve all suffered trauma in our childhood, especially if you use the definition of trauma being anything less than nurturing, which I learned from previous guest,Brent Charleton. Traumatic experiences can alter our emotional responses and create problematic neural pathways. Plus, that trauma lives in our bodies as tension and stress. But this trauma doesn’t just cause anxiety and back pain. This trauma can keep our bodies stuck in a suboptimal state. Thankfully, there’s a solution to this, and to tell us all about it, we haveDr. David Bercelijoining us. He’s an international author, presenter, and trainer in the areas of trauma intervention, stress reduction, and resiliency & recovery training. He has lived in war-torn countries and natural disaster zones around the world. And he is the creator of the TRE, or “Tension and Trauma Release Exercises”. TRE releases stress and trauma from the body through exercises that bring balance to the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. If you or someone you love suffers from stress or trauma, you’re going to want to hear what David has to say. Leaving it unmanaged is like driving a car with the emergency brake engaged. So let’s get started!

Release Trauma through TRE with David Berceli

Detoxify Your Brain with Dr. David Perlmutter

Something I learned in my Kabbalah class is when you focus on darkness, you attract more darkness. When you focus on the light, you get more light. Our brains work similarly, in that they have an incredible amount of neuroplasticity that we can literally mold through our daily habits, whether it's our sleeping, eating or consumption habits, we have the power to optimize them for better health and inner peace in our lives. But we don't always make the best lifestyle choices for our future, especially in this day and age of social media addiction, a culture of convenience providing apps that make everything and anything available in an instant and information overload. Our poor eating and sleeping habits affect our prefrontal cortex, which is the area of our brain, which allows us to plan strategically for our future, have more empathy, and think more rationally. A poor lifestyle is fueling poor behavioral patterns, which ultimately lead to a poor state of overall emotional and physical well being. My guest today is Dr. David Perlmutter, a Board Certified neurologist and New York Times bestselling author of the books Brain Wash, Grain Brain, Brain Maker, and more. He serves on the Board of Directors and is a fellow of the American College of Nutrition. He's also a member of the editorial board for the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease and has published extensively in peer-reviewed scientific journals. In addition, he is a frequent lecturer at symposia sponsored by institutions such as the World Bank and IMF, Columbia University, Scripps Institute, New York University, and Harvard University. He serves as an Associate Professor at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. Join us as we take a closer look at the human brain and discuss ways you can rewire and reframe your mindset. Whether it's weight loss, work-life balance, or maintaining good relationships, Dr. Perlmutter's expert advice is incredibly valuable, but as he cautions in this episode, only if you take it and run with it.

Become Infinite with Sasha Daygame

A decade ago, I was a train wreck. I was recently divorced. I was socially awkward. I didn’t know how to talk to women. In fact, I was terrified to do so. I looked like a computer nerd who never saw the sun. Yeah, I was downright unattractive. Thankfully, I went through a metamorphosis. And the two men who started me on that path of reinvention were Tony Robbins and Neil Strauss. How I got from there to where I am now was no small feat. Initially it was about mindset, then it was about physical transformation, but ultimately it was about spiritual growth. To say I am unrecognizable from my former self would be a huge understatement. So how does one go from socially awkward to awakened? Well, today’s guest is going to illuminate that for us. His insights just might change your life as they have with his students and clients. Sasha Daygame is a visionary, renegade dating coach, and spiritual seeker. ​Sasha is also the founder of the Infinite Man Summit. He began as a standup comedian at the age of 17 and several years later got into self-improvement. In 2008, he started Sasha Dating Systems to help men overcome their anxiety, improve their charisma, and form fulfilling personal relationships. He has personally coached thousands of men across five continents, as well as creating a cult following via his YouTube channel with over 12 million views. ​More than just dating, Sasha’s teachings inspire men to create extraordinary lives by challenging societal and parental programming. In this episode, he and I talk about how you can break out of the matrix and start living powerfully and consciously. On with the show!

Your Superfood Cheat Sheet with David "Avocado" Wolfe

Living in the information age comes with a price. That price is overwhelm. We are drowning in data, and we desperately want to know who and what we can trust online. Especially when it comes to high stakes issues, such as our health and longevity. It’s important to be discerning, to not simply accept conventional wisdom, and to assess the incentives that may influence a health expert’s position on a topic. One of the biggest factors in our health is the food we eat. Honestly, how much of what you consume is nutrition-dense? Hey, I’m guilty too. But armed with some new, well-curated information, you’re about to get healthier, my friend. That’s because my guest for this episode 226 is David "Avocado" Wolfe. He's a nutritionist, a super foodist, an orator, an herbalist, a chocolatier, and an organic farmer. You probably heard his name before, but if you haven't, he's a big deal on social media. He has a following on Facebook of 12 million. He's the Indiana Jones of the superfoods and longevity space. David has over 25 years of experience, and he’s hosted 3000 live health events.

The Hazards of Everyday Products with Dr. Anthony Jay

Many diseases today are caused by hormonal imbalances and the common denominator, the chemicals found in our food and personal care products. These nasty chemicals can cause diseases like cancer, obesity and Alzheimer's. Some have even been linked to depression. Before you place a product in your shopping cart, you need to know what it's made of and whether the manufacturer can be trusted. Furthermore, your genetics can play a pivotal role in whether that product is good for you or bad for you. So it really pays to have your DNA analyzed. My guest for this episode number 224 is Dr. Anthony Jay. He's a Mayo Clinic scientist, DNA consultant and author of the book, Estrogeneration, which is all about how estrogenic substances are messing with our biology. Anthony hosts the Chagrin and Tonic YouTube show and podcast and he has a Ph.D. in biochemistry. It's time to get savvy about what you put in and on your body and what's in your genes. You owe it to yourself and to the generations that will follow you. So let's get into it.

Maximize Your Profitability with Mike Michalowicz

Entrepreneurs tend to showcase their successes and hide their screwups. Yet the mistakes, and what the entrepreneur learned from them, are arguably what brought on the success. It’s those failures that really hone one’s skills and intuition. One man who’s been honest about his missteps on the road to success in the hopes of helping others is Mike Michalowicz. In some ways, Mike and I have lived parallel lives, starting out with technology businesses in the 90s that we built up and eventually sold, moving on to a life of consulting, speaking, and publishing books. Mike is the author of six books, including Profit First and Clockwork, and the host of the Entrepreneurship Elevated Podcast. He has appeared on NBC, MSNBC, Fox News, ABC News Now, and CNBC's On the Money. One of the most powerful business lessons I have learned from Mike is the principle of taking your profit first. This is the opposite of the conventional approach to business, where the profit comes last after you deduct expenses from top-line revenue. Essentially, you’re taking your cut first, and then hiding it from yourself so you’re not tempted to spend it. It’s a simple idea but it will transform your business. That’s just a tiny fraction of Mike’s wisdom, and on this episode number 223, you’re going to get years of experience in entrepreneurship distilled into one incredible hour. You don’t want to miss this!

Of all the organs in the human body, the brain is arguably the most important, yet we still don't understand exactly how it works.

As a chiropractic neurologist and founder and president of the Neuropathy Treatment Centers of America, Dr. DiDuro has made it his life's work to end the suffering of patients with neurodegenerative diseases.
