Suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death for people between the ages of 10-24. Dr. Mark Goulston teaches us how to communicate better with our kids so that they understand they have a purpose on this earth.
As a parent with a child who has ADD or ADHD (or any other neurodevelopmental disorder), you may be stressed trying to find the best ways to support your child. From doctor visits, to meetings with the school counselors, to getting your kids to follow directions, this can really wear you down. So what are some ways to support your child and yourself? Learn more in this episode.
The 5G network is on its way, and soon all major cities will have 5G towers on every single block. That isn’t an exaggeration, while 5G frequencies are much more powerful than previous frequencies, the range at which it travels is much shorter. It is estimated that there will be a 5G tower on nearly every single block in all major cities. This will mean there will be more radio frequency radiation available for our bodies. So why is 5G being installed around the world? And since this is a train that can’t be stopped, what can we do to protect our body from the radiation?
It is estimated that over 50% of homes in the US have some form of mold damage. With so many people living in homes that have been damaged by mold, it is important to take a look into the possible health issues that mold exposure can cause.
While the health issues from mold exposure typically don’t hit the mainstream media, it is becoming more known that mold can wreak havoc on people’s health. Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker has been one of the biggest influencers in the research done on mold toxicity and how it has impacted the health of families, school district employees, and even large companies.
In his books, Surviving Mold and Mold Warriors, he dives deep into the information on toxic buildings and mold. He has countless stories of people who have suffered with misdiagnosed health issues that all relate back to mold exposure.
In the guide below, you will learn the steps to take to test your home, yourself, and to recover from mold toxicity.
How often do you think about breathing? During the day, probably not very much, but you probably notice it when you are doing any kind of strenuous activity. However, we breathe all day long, and it is a vital function for our survival.
We follow training protocols to improve our strength and cardio capabilities. When we don’t feel great, we look for natural remedies or medications to make us feel better. There are so many ways that we try to improve our health, yet when was the last time you purposely worked to improve the way you breathe?
Oxygen is important to the body, we all know that. Without it for a couple of minutes, we can lose brain function or even cause death. Oxygen helps to transport nutrients through the body, flushes out toxins, and creates energy.
The Wim Hof Method is a fantastic way to improve the way you breathe. Through these methods, you can retrain your body to better utilize oxygen and to strengthen the muscles needed to breathe efficiently.
In previous podcast episodes, we have talked about ways to help with neuro-degenerative issues by utilizing special diets or functional medicine modalities. These are all great to improve brain function, but there are many other components to the process than just supplemental support and nutrition.
Ryan Glatt has been feverishly studying cognitive neuroscience and has been incorporating what he has learned to improve neurofunction based off of different exercise or movement modalities. He has been incorporating the use of different cues for different types of brain function, along with various training types that are more catered to what the individual needs. An example of this would be keeping the overall heart rate exertion of someone with anxiety under 80%. It is these individualized training protocols that are needed to greatly enhance the movement capabilities of the people we work with.
Welcome to 2018! Since this time of year everyone starts to set their health goals and everyone is talking about topics related to wellness, we are starting our first episode talking about 2 different health-related topics: Alzheimer’s and the Keto diet.
Alzheimer’s is one of those interesting diseases that scientists have worked hard to study, but have made very little progress with finding treatment options. Most of the time when the diagnosis is made, the family is told that there isn’t much hope, and eventually the disease will fully take over their mind.
We have been on a role lately talking about neurological issues and how to go about correcting dysfunction. But not often do we have the opportunity to have a TEDx speaker come on to talk about their approach to integrative psychiatry!
McCall McPherson has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to mental health from a physiological and biochemical perspective. She takes the time to actually listen to what her patients need, and uses this type of practice to discover the root cause for the mental health.
Granted, she isn’t just extremely knowledgeable in the mental health realm, she is also great at discovering thyroid issues, which is why she will be opening her thyroid clinic in the upcoming few weeks. You can listen in as we picked her brain in this episode of Integrative Psychiatry with McCall McPherson!
The brain is like a very powerful computer, and if some of the electrical signals aren’t functioning properly, then it can override the system. There are ways to test which signals are working or not, and this is where the power of neurofeedback comes in.
Neurofeedback gives a practitioner the ability to map your brain and see which brain waves are overworking or underworking. By utilizing this map, the practitioner is able to create protocols to help reorganize the way the brain is functioning. This process is what Katie discusses in this episode of Neurofeedback with Katie Packwood!
The state of mental health in our culture is becoming more and more questionable as suicide rates start to increase and more people suffer from depression. So what are some ways to help people to improve their mental health and to pull out of these depressive states? Join Carol Lourie and I as we discuss ways to improve mental health in this episode of Integrative Mental Health with Carol Lourie!
