    LIFT Your Story with Dr. Tomi Mitchell, Board Certified Family Physician, & Mental Health & Wellness

    LIFT Your Story with Dr. Tomi Mitchell, Board Certified Family Physician, & Mental Health & Wellness

    We start by asking Dr. Tomi Mitchell what a Board Certified Family Physician is.   She explains she's done over and above the necessary to practice.  Dr. Tomi is certified in two provinces in Canada.  She also explains that you are required to continue with the education yearly, and she has done so for the past ten years.

    Dr. Tomi went through a near-death experience and shares this story with us.  After giving birth to her second child, her daughter stopped breathing, and Dr. Tomi required resuscitating her and taking her to the hospital.  They told her it was just reflux, however, Dr. Tomi did not take that as an answer.  Eventually, they did put her daughter in ICU.  After doing so, she was relieved, however, she went to the washroom and began hemorrhaging very badly.

    That was the first of five hemorrhages.  The last one was so painful, and at this point, Dr. Tomi was losing faith.   She said that it was a strange feeling to feel the pain for her toddler, and her feelings for her newborn were different because she hadn't had the chance to truly connect since birth.  Very compelling story.

    We also spoke to Dr. Tomi's Mental Health and Wellness Coaching business, and how this part of her life is fulfilling, knowing the changes she's making in other people's lives.

    You can learn more about Dr. Tomi by going to www.holisticwellnessstrategies.com

    LIFT Your Story with Dr Mark Ryall, Teacher, Athlete, Artist and Author

    LIFT Your Story with Dr Mark Ryall, Teacher, Athlete, Artist and Author

    What a fascinating episode.   Dr. Mark Ryall explains his book, a fiction, Age De-coded, which is about genetic engineering technology and takes place in the future.  Mark says it's not "fantasy" science fiction, rather it is speculative science fiction based in the period of 2053 to 2256.

    When asked what inspired him to write this book, Mark says "well, I'm getting older".  :)  Also, being an athlete, he says he realizes how you do slow down as you age.   He was reading an article about genetic engineering and this is what led him to write this book.

    We discussed the pluses and minuses of genetic engineering and choosing to be age de-coded and not get any older, or reverse aging, which is also in his book.

    Very intriguing and a must listen to.

    You can find Mark on LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook.  His book Age De-coded is at most of the major retailers, Amazon, Apple, Kobo, and Indigo.

    More about Mark:

    Mark Ryall recently retired from teaching economics at Royal St. George's College (Toronto) and Hillfield Strathallan College (Hamilton) for a combined twenty-four years. His first love in high school coaching was always cross country running. Mark’s newly released speculative fiction Age-Decoded is his first novel. He wrote it to educate himself and the world about the imminent tsunami of CRISPR genetic engineering technology. The story peers 100-200 years into the future, allowing the reader to critically imagine and feel the effects of this incredible new scientific frontier. Mark represented Canada in the 2019 World Age-Group Triathlon Championships in Lausanne, Switzerland. He enjoys acrylic art and currently serves as a volunteer cross country coach for Westdale Secondary School in Hamilton. His education includes BSc, MBA, and Ph.D. (University of Toronto).

    LIFT Your Story with Trina L, Martin Technologist Speaker and Author

    LIFT Your Story with Trina L, Martin Technologist Speaker and Author

    Trina starts off by telling us what a "technologist" is.  She said having worked in technology for the past two decades, she branded herself as such.  She did computer forensics, and cyber-security, and cyber-intelligence prior to it becoming popular. 

    We chuckled about the old computer programming and coding systems, and the fun of watching the growth and changes in technology.

    Trina spoke to her books.  She wrote her own and also co-authored.  Her labour of love is called From A Mess to Amazing - Seven steps to create a life you deserve.  In her book, she speaks to her journey through life and how she overcame them.

    Trina was in technology, as noted earlier, and also is a retired naval officer after thirty years of service.  As the youngest of four children,  she said she grew up with a verbally abusive mother.    She said her words shook her.  On the good side, she became a type-A person, however, she explained that it led her to some abusive relationships.  Although in her business life she was thriving, her personal life was not.   Through her own personal development, she was inspired to write her book.

    Trina is also an advocate of encouraging women of colour to realize the potential they have to move into the profession of technology, that there is a great opportunity to do so.

    You can find Trina and her book at www.trinalmartin.com and she is also on LinkedIn.  Her book is also available on Amazon.

    LIFT Your Story with Cassie Christopher Registered Dietician

    LIFT Your Story with Cassie Christopher Registered Dietician

    Cassie explains the difference between being a registered dietician and a nutritionist.  It is someone who has education and credentials in the area of nutrition and is able to provide medical nutritional medicine.

    The difference is anyone can call themselves a nutritionist, but a registered dietician does have those credentials.

    Cassie focuses on women 45 and up to deal with emotional eating.

    Although traditional registered dieticians may start with a medical history, Cassie looks more to the emotional reasons for their issues with food, and with problems of using food to numb or avoid feeling your feelings.

    She talks about self-talk, choices we make every day, and the circle of feeling good and then afterwards feeling bad.  She says the positive to that circle, or that loop is that there is multiple places to intervene.  The first place to start is why are you eating, and how you can feel those instead.

    She said the prevailing bad advice is "just don't do it".   Cassie said she struggled herself, and even with all the education she had on the subject, she still had to come to terms with feeling the emotion, and that is not an easy thing to do.  She said you don't just numb the bad feelings, you also numb the good ones too.  She also shares that stress is the biggest emotion that people try to numb, and that "stress" is the "bottom layer of the cheesecake".

    You can find Cassie at www.cassiechristopher.net.  And if you go to www.cassiechristopher.net/free, you can get a free step by step what it's going to get towards healing, which doesn't have a lot to do with food.

    LIFT Your Story with Deborah Levine Forbes Magazine Top Diversity & Inclusion Trailblazer, Author of 15 Books and a beautiful story about being an activist for diversity and women's rights

    "I instruct young people to write down everything.  Because they are history".  What a beautiful thought.  Deborah states that at some point the "Boomers" will all be out of the workforce and that history will be gone.

    She also asks "how many 'boomers' have podcasts?"  Many.  And Roy shares that "Seniors" are one of the top Youtube watchers. 

    An amazing story about diversity on so many levels.

    In this episode, Roy Miller hosts Deborah Levine who is a Forbes Magazine Top Diversity and Inclusion Trailblazer, author of 15 books, and Editor of The American Diversity Report.

    Deborah's story is beautiful and has rich history involved in this.

    Deborah shares that she is a member of the only Jewish family to have lived four generations on the Island of Bermuda.

    To diversity, she said that she was born into it.  Being the only Jewish child on the Island of Bermuda growing up and then moving to Long Island at seven with a British accent, it was a part of her world.  Diversity.

    When asked if Harvard had "exclusion", Deborah said it was interesting.  She explains the "wild" time, which included being during the Vietnam war and that women were challenged.

    These notes could be pages long, so please listen to this.  It is a wonderful and inspiring story.

    You can reach out to Deborah by going to https://www.americandiversityreport.com which has been up for 15 years.  Deborah's books are available on this site and also on Amazon.

    LIFT Your Story with Debora Wayne Founder and CEO of the International Chronic Pain Institute

    LIFT Your Story with Debora Wayne Founder and CEO of the International Chronic Pain Institute

    Debora said what was significant to her was becoming a dancer when she was four years old, and being told she would never be a dancer.  She said that what her dancing instructor didn't know about her was that Debora cannot be told she can't.  She then became a professional dancer for 30 years.

    This determination has led her through everything in life. 

    Debora says the arts have been the most significant part of her life, to sense and feel, and have been a key to her work today.  Debora says your life is your art.
