Just a short episode explaining why I couldn't release a regular episode this week and how a practice of meditation can be a key to stop you from attacking your laptop with verbal and physical violence.

In this episode I’m going to discuss another one of the so called superfoods and this one was known as “Runner’s food” in ancient times because supposedly runners and warriors would use them as fuel while running long distances or during battle. These packets of energy are called Chia which means “strength” in the Mayan language. They are healthy and delicious and loaded with lots of energizing nutrients for our body and brain.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • Why Chia seeds were unknown to most of the world for so long
  • The beneficial nutrients found in Chia seeds
  • Why they can reduce the effects of free radical damage
  • Why they are so beneficial for digestive health
  • How they can directly improve energy and endurance
  • How they can reduce inflammation in the body
  • Why the Omega 3 fatty Acids in them may not be super useful to us
  • Cautions related to Chia seed consumption
  • Delicious ways to incorporate Chia seeds into your diet

It gives foods like fish a great crunchy coating for frying

It’s pretty clear that a lack of sleep equals a lack of mental and physical energy as well as a range of health related issues including a shortened lifespan. Unfortunately, this is a challenging reality for most parents. Even though there are rare individuals who can function healthily on minimal sleep, the recommended sleep range for adults is between 7-9 hours. So anything that can help with sleep is of interest to me and that’s how I discovered a sleep device called the SomniResonance SR1 which could help some of you who are having sleeping issues or perhaps those of you who just want to be able to get into deep restorative sleep a lot easier. 

It’s a small, lightweight, battery-powered device approved for safe use by regulatory bodies in the USA (Underwriters Laboratories and FDA) using a method of therapy called PEMF which is supported by science for its use in treating various ailments and disorders. In this episode of TheEdTalks, president of the company DSleep Michael Lares, explains the science of sleep and how this little device may just be the helping hand that lets you get a rejuvenating night’s sleep again.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • The traumatic story that led Michael to discover the SR-1
  • What the SR-1 sleep device is and how it works
  • Who could benefit from using the device
  • The possible implications of sleep deprivation, including a shortened lifespan
  • How many hours of sleep is recommended for most people
  • The myths surrounding sleep
  • Devices to help you measure (quantify) your sleep
  • How 70% of sleep issues can be resolved
  • The different stages of sleep and how it affects our healing process
  • Key mistakes that waste our energy.

In the last Energy Boost episode number 24 I discussed the Australian Gubinge fruit or more commonly known as the kakadu plum. It is the richest natural source of Vitamin C in the world plus it contains an impressive array of other nutritional benefits that can help us feel more energized in so many ways. Check out the episode here.

In this episode of TheEdTalks I’m going to discuss the green succulent plant Aloe vera that’s been used for centuries for its supposedly health, beauty, medicinal and skin care properties. I have long used the gel of Aloe vera for burns but it was not until I was given a tea in Peru that included the fresh inner gel that I realised you could also ingest it. I was also not aware of the dangers surrounding the use of Aloe vera.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • Some of the key nutrients found in Aloe vera
  • The various energizing benefits of consuming Aloe vera
  • How it can slow down the ageing process
  • The efficacy of its use for weight loss
  • What parts of the plant to use to reduce possible carcinogenic side effects
  • What to look for if purchasing a processed Aloe vera product.

Knee pain is such a huge issue for so many people with extreme cases leading to knee replacement surgery of which over 700,000 were performed in the United States alone in 2015. Here in Australia apparently close to 2 million people live with the pain and restricted movement that goes with osteoarthritis which no doubt leads to a life of drained physical and mental energy. In this episode of TheEdTalks I discuss an approach to healing knee pain naturally with expert Bill Parravano, who has over 26 years of experience understanding movement and tension patterns that lead to physical pain and offering an alternative to those who are stuck with knee pain.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • Why toddler’s knees are like shock absorbers

  • The crippling effect knee pain can have on your energy levels
  • Why strengthening muscles at the wrong time can make knee pain worse
