Have you ever tasted pasta that was cooked in unsalted water? You find yourself wondering when will it taste good but that moment never comes. This was my life in May 2011—bland pasta. People I trusted had recently thrown me under the bus, which felt like a knife to the chest. I never saw it […]
The statement happy wife – happy life has been tossed around for decades, perhaps centuries or even millennia. I think it’s time for a change. Don’t forget that the earth was once flat until Copernicus and Galileo challenged the theory to expose the truth. OK maybe the comparison falls a little short but you get the […]
When you find yourself in a dark place, you’re likely aware that you’re suffering emotionally but what happens to your body? Unhappiness is not confined to your brain. It cascades throughout your body through a well-known process known as the stress response. In her book Mind over Medicine Dr. Lissa Rankin reports, “When something hurts […]
Have you ever noticed that people just have a way of pissing you off? How and why do they do that to you? Do they have some special power or are they just idiots. Actually neither. They’re just another living organism en route to somewhere. Do you think they wake up thinking I’m gonna […]
When you think, nerve cells (neurons) connect with each other creating a hardwired pattern of thought. A negative pattern of thinking results in the release of chemical hormones that flood your blood stream and stimulate all of your cells to make proteins that tend to make you sick. It’s like putting Low Grade gasoline in your engine as opposed to High Octane! It won’t hurt you right away but, in the end, things will erode. As long as you can breathe, you can change your life. Simply make a decision about how you want to feel and focus all of your energy on it. Steer clear of negative thoughts, negative programming and negative people. When you find yourself overwhelmed, go outside into nature and calm yourself. Your experience in life is connected to how you feel, which is a product of how you think.
When you experience stress, you’re simply applying meaning to an event that has either HAPPENED or you THINK will happen to you. Sometimes you are correct and sometimes you are not. Studies have shown that up to 93% of what you stress over never actually happens. Unfortunately, poor thinking/chronic stress has profound negative effects on your cells and ultimately your health. Perhaps like grandma used to say to you, “change your attitude and watch yourself soar”. She was right and this podcast will teach you why she was right from a doctors’ perspective. Your body becomes what you consistently think of.
There are several different causes of DEPRESSION but perhaps the most powerful one of all is LONELINESS. That doesn’t mean that you simply don’t have other people in your proximity, it means that you struggle to make strong human connections. Over 55 million people in America wake up every day and take medication for depression and anxiety. We’ve been told by the AMA and Big Pharma that mood stabilizing medications, SSRI’s, help to balance serotonin levels in our brain which reduces the symptoms of depression and anxiety. The question is, does the science support this hypothesis? Does the medication really change the brain or is the effect a placebo? Join me for this interesting discussion into all things related to depression.
Sports have been a staple in America for years. If you live in the New England area like me, you know that the foundation of great sports lore is built around the Boston Red Sox. Join me in this conversation with Chris Valente, the Director of Marketing for the Boston Red Sox as we get an update on our beloved team. Chris discusses how sports have provided a haven for fellowship and entertainment allowing a modicum of escape from life’s challenges. When all else fails…Go Sox!!
