Have you ever felt a sense of being a little or perhaps very lost in your life? Well most people including myself have and in this episode of TheEdTalks I chat with psychologist Daniella Princi who shines a light on how so many factors play a role in leading us to a point in our lives where we feel this emptiness and loss of connection with ourselves.

In this episode I tackle a topic that I’ve wanted to learn more about for a while and that is why some of us feel terrible (including flu like symptoms, fatigue, mental fog, headaches) after swimming in or even just being around indoor swimming pools. Logically it would seem that there’s something affecting our bodies in a negative and possibly damaging way and thus I also wanted to be better informed of the possible implications for our son.

So have a listen to learn what I discovered surrounding the effect of swimming pool chemicals on our health and wellbeing and what we can do to combat the negatives.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • Why chlorination is the most popular method for disinfecting swimming pools
  • What Disinfection By Products (DBPs) are
  • Why indoor chlorinated pools may not be the best thing for asthmatics
  • How swimming indoors can negatively affect male hormones
  • Pool chemicals that affect cells’ ability to make energy
  • How to mitigate the possible harm being caused to our children from DBPs
  • Specific foods and supplements that may mitigate pool chemical exposure
  • Alternative pool sanitization systems to purely chlorine or bromine
  • How to reduce chronic stress and feel energized.

My guest in this episode, Dr. Phil Carson, is a practicing pharmacist but his focus is helping patients find the best natural solutions to their health problems rather than simply reaching for pharmaceuticals. He has authored a book called “How to Live until you die,” and the podcast outlines 7 keys as described in his book for feeling healthy and happy again. Dr. Phil has a great message that he shares in this interview which for some people may be things that you practice in your life already, but everyone is on their own journey and what seems obvious to some is a light bulb moment for others. Also, the most obvious things can become lost in the rush of daily life and so being reminded of them is extremely valuable.

Please note that there are some supplement companies recommended by Dr. Phil in this interview which upon research have both had recalls on products surrounding salmonella contamination, so remember to always consult your healthcare practitioner prior to consuming new types of supplements.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • What does alkaline water and the alkaline diet mean
  • Dr. Phil’s 7 keys to more quality and quantity of life
  • How to make exercise simple
  • Two key things to consider when looking at your nutrition
  • The one thing that is affecting peoples’ quality of sleep the most
  • If you should consider supplementation

Even if you’re not really into mushrooms, the fact is that you’re breathing in mushroom spores right now and these fungi play an enormous role in our lives and that of our planet. There are over 400 known medicinal mushrooms that are said to heal everything from gut health to cancer and apparently the oldest living thing on earth is a 2,000 plus year old, over 6,000 ton fungus in Oregon, USA.

I grew up on a farm and we ate lots of field mushrooms that I’d go and collect with my dad, which mum would later cook up with a whole piece of garlic to check whether or not they were poisonous, by observing if the garlic changed colour or not. But it wasn’t until I visited a friend in Italy that I was exposed to a huge array of wild culinary and medicinal mushrooms that I’d never seen or heard of, that his dad had foraged from the mountains close to their village which opened my mind to the world of fungi.

In this episode of TheEdTalks I chat with Tero Isokauppila, co-founder of medicinal mushroom company Four Sigmatic and our discussion delivers a wealth of knowledge on the benefits of various mushrooms, as well as how we can use them to sedate our kids naturally!

Remember to always consult your healthcare practitioner prior to consuming new types of food or supplements such as mushrooms.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • Why fungi are so important for plants, humans and the planet
  • What Mycoremediation is and how it can play a part in reducing toxins
  • How oyster mushrooms can suck up diesel fuel
  • What led Anglo Saxons to be known as mushroom racists
  • The difference between medicinal and culinary mushrooms
  • The energy boosting effects of cordyceps
  • Why reishi mushrooms may be a better natural alternative to help you sleep
  • Why you should avoid consuming raw mushrooms
  • Which mushroom may actually help with candida
  • Why you should go organic with mushrooms when possible
  • What things to look for when buying mushrooms and supplemental products
  • A great mushroom to help reduce stress and sedate your kids
  • Tero’s general rules when choosing supplements, superfoods, wholefoods and fungi
  • Three ways that Tero suggests to help you feel more energized.

In this episode of TheEdTalks I interview pediatrician and author Dr. Paul Thomas, who dives deep into vaccine territory, a place where many other specialists that I’ve spoken with have strong views about, but do not feel comfortable publically expressing their opinions because of possible negative consequences. Dr. Paul is extremely well researched and follows a personalized approach when it comes to vaccinations in his own practice, Integrative Paediatrics. This is a Dr. who is not totally against vaccines but rather wants to empower people so that they can make better informed decisions for their particular situation. Everyone is different and just because one side of the vaccine camp says you shouldn’t vaccinate or the other side says you should vaccinate is not a reason to do so. The focus needs to shift to what best suites your particular situation and that of your child and a lot of what Dr. Paul delivers in this talk just makes common sense. His book “The Vaccine Friendly Plan” is a wealth of information that’s useful from pregnancy until your kid's teen years.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • Is there any association between vaccines and autism
  • Why the HepB vaccine is not a great idea for infants in the USA, Australia or Western Europe
  • The impact of aluminum (aluminium) as found in vaccines on brain health
  • The conflict of what the FDA recommends is safe for Aluminum exposure and levels contained in vaccines
  • The implications of the adjuvant induced syndrome called ASIA
  • The findings of a study comparing the health of vaccinated kids versus non vaccinated kids
  • The vaccine friendly plan that has been working in Dr. Paul’s practice
  • The findings from a study conducted in Dr. Paul’s practice involving over 1000 children
  • The power of true informed consent
  • Whether or not the Polio and Rotavirus vaccines are necessary in the developed world
  • The risks associated with not taking certain vaccines
  • Why herd immunity needs to be looked at case by case
  • The implications of not being vaccinated in California and Australia
  • Why it’s not a great idea to take acetaminophen (paracetamol) for fever or pain.
  • Why Dr. Paul believes the pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine is a bad idea for pregnant women
  • What cocooning is and how it has been shown to reduce infant mortality
  • What factors to weigh up when considering the pertussis vaccine
  • Why Dr. Paul believes it is safer to give the MMR vaccine after 3 years of age
  • Why separating the MMR and varicella vaccines seems a safer option
  • How to have a healthy immune system
  • Vitamins that Dr. Paul suggests you should supplement with
  • Why Brazil nuts can help to mitigate the toxic effects of vaccines
  • The warning signs to look out for in child behavior to stop vaccinations
  • How the MTHFR enzyme may increase the risk of developing Autism
  • Why you should avoid the multi dose flu shot
  • Why pregnant women should avoid flu shots
  • The possible connection between vaccines, allergies and autoimmune conditions
  • Five things Dr. Paul suggests that can help us feel more energized.

This will be the last Energy Boost episode for 2016. The family and I are off across the country to spend Christmas with my parents and siblings in a few weeks which will be wonderful but at the same time quite difficult as my father is reaching the end of his journey which brings with it an incredible amount of emotions to deal with. I’ll also be taking a break from releasing episodes for a few months in the new year to give me the time that I need to complete a course that I’ve been creating for the past year called the “Stress Free Method”.

BodyTalk is an alternative holistic healing system that is practiced all over the world, founded by an Australian Health Care Practitioner called Dr. John Veltheim. I’m always open to new approaches in healing but my science mind does kick in wanting to rationalise things, making me question the validity of modalities that are more touchy feely, without scientifically proven efficacy.

But I definitely acknowledge that there are many mysteries that science can not yet explain, that anecdotally are shown to improve the wellbeing and energy in people and also the fact is that scientific studies cost lots of money and unless there is something that can be developed as a result of the study, the incentives to fund and carry them out are not very compelling. As long as no harm is being done and lots of money not being exchanged, I think something is worth trying if other avenues of traditional medicine are not delivering results, as was the case with Melia Brent-White, who is a certified BodyTalk Practitioner. In this episode of TheEdTalks Melia explains what exactly BodyTalk is, how it created a big positive shift in her life and how it may help us feel more energized.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • What BodyTalk is and how it works
  • How it can help with anxiety, addiction and depression
  • A new modern theory of thinking that affects everything that we know
  • The Chinese medicine principles incorporated into BodyTalk
  • How it can release past suppressed emotions
  • The other healing modalities incorporated into BodyTalk
  • Why you don’t have to be a believer to reap benefits from it
  • Why our gut may be controlling us more than our brain
  • Melia’s experience in healing people and animals with this technique
  • A key mistake that wastes our energy
  • Three interesting things that Melia suggests to help us feel energized.

Before researching for this interview I had never heard of the term chronotype. It simply refers to our individualized biological clock or circadian rhythm, the mechanism that controls when we naturally want to do things like go to sleep, eat or have sex.

A huge key to living a more energized life is being able to go with the flow of our body’s natural internal clock and my guest in this episode of TheEdTalks is an expert on the subject. Dr. Michael Breus is an actively practicing psychologist, sleep specialist and author of the book "The Power of When”. It was a result of struggling to help one of his patients with regular methods that led Dr. Breus to research and utilise the power and simplicity of chronotypes to drastically improve her life and that of those around her.

This is a powerfully informative talk, as discovering what your chronotype is and how you can make slight adjustments in your life to better suite your particular rhythm, can lead to improved health, relationships, sex and lots more that inevitably will make you feel a whole lot more energized.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • What your chronotype means and how to check which category you fit into
  • Why understanding your chronorythem will improve your life
  • The two key processes for sleep
  • How our sleep stages and sleep cycle works
  • Why stages 3 & 4 of our sleep cycle are so important for daily energy
  • What generally everyone can do to improve their sleep
  • The one key thing that has helped many of Dr. Breus’s patients improve their sleep
  • Why our chronotype has been affected in modern times
  • 5 simple steps to help you sleep better
  • The best time to consume caffeine to give you the maximum stimulant boost
  • Why for many people it’s important to stop exercising 4 hours before going to bed
  • How morning or early evening sex can result in a more connected relationship
  • The best time of day to have a discussion about heated issues with your partner
  • How children are affected by their chronorythms
  • The best time to connect with your kids
  • What you can do if your life situation does not suite your chronotype
  • How to help teenagers cope with a chronotype not suited to school hours
  • One thing that Dr. Breus finds that really wastes energy.

The Thyroid can have a dramatic impact on our energy levels as it regulates amongst other things your body's temperature, metabolism and heartbeat.

Feeling energized takes a complete holistic approach. Getting the best nutrition into our bodies is definitely key, however if stress is overwhelming us all the time which is pretty common for many people, especially parents, the associated release of hormones will essentially suppress our ability to absorb all the healing and energizing nutrients from foods that we consume.

So exploring non-nutrition related things that play a role in how we function is very very important although personally I find it can be hard to crack my shell sometimes to open up and start to dive in deep to untangle or let go of the plethora of thoughts and emotions stored inside me. A way to make this process easier I’ve found, can be by using tools like the “cube personality test” developed by a couple of Japanese psychologists called Tadahiko Nagao and Isamu Saito which I run through in this episode. These fun questions are not to be taken seriously and can be interpreted in different ways, but they get you thinking about your deeper self a little more which is key to feeling more energized.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • The fun questions surrounding the “cube personality test”
  • How you perceive yourself and those close to you
  • How different symbols can be used to symbolise personal traits
  • Triggers in your life that may unknowingly be causing you stress
  • A better understanding of your personal relationships
