463: Magnesium, a Love Story with Dr. Carolyn Dean
Magnesium is a favorite among yoga students due to its crucial role in nervous system health and as a muscle relaxant. Magnesium is everywhere, but oddly, many people are still lacking in their daily diets. On this week’s podcast, we’ll unpack the myriad of health benefits magnesium provides.
Magnesium is a central atom in the chlorophyll molecule, an essential part of the process of photosynthesis.
462: The Power of Dreams with Charlie Morley
Yes, dreaming is adaptive. Just as your body recovers while you sleep, your brain uses dream states to consolidate memory, learn from experiences, and process emotions. If we can all agree that it’s beneficial to be mindful during your waking states, it’s reasonable to assume that a mindful dream practice should serve us as well. On this week’s podcast, we’ll deep dive into the importance of dreaming.
461: What Comes Next? Q&As Galore with Lucas Rockwood
Will you ever go back to the office? Will kids ever take in-person school seriously again? And what will the bounce-back look like this summer after more people are vaccinated? This week’s podcast is a departure from my usual guest interview, and instead, I answer select listener questions about my post-pandemic thoughts in terms of business and health.
460: Rethinking Physical Pain with Aaron Kubal
Have you ever experienced chronic back or knee pain? An estimated 80% of people have a major pain episode at some point in their lives, and it often leads to downstream mental and physical health problems.
459: Making sense of Food with Robb Wolf
You step into your local health food store, and the confusion begins. Keto, Paleo, low fat, high fat. It’s all so overwhelming. One approach lowers your cholesterol but improves your blood sugar. Another diet is great for combating inflammation but causes constipation.
458: Tendencies, Habits & Change with Gretchen Rubin
Every few months a new productivity book hits the shelves, and of course, I read it. I’m a sucker for personal growth hacks. Do I need to fix my morning routine? What about a gratitude journal? Should I drink lemon water or celery juice in the morning? I joke that I’m a walking cliche - but that doesn’t change my behavior.
A positive influence
I’ve been doing the hip opening challenge and I feel like it’s going to change my life, and just listened to one of Lucas’ podcasts “How to change your mind”, and I really enjoy hearing what Lucas has to say and believe he can be a positive influence in my life. I will continue to follow and listen.
Truly life saving information
I almost gave up myself 8 years ago, my doctors said that I am always going to have that inflammation in my bones and low back and that is ok because I am kind of old( I was 42)... I decided to fight and I found Lukas Rockwood on YouTube, I subscribed and since then he is my lifesaver and Guru:):) I am 50 now and healthy, flexible ,energetic person...my Dog enjoys our long walks while I am listening to the podcast , which is significantly improving my English :):)and also my knowledge in Nutrition and Body science:) Thank you Lukas, we need you:)!

Diverse topics, engaging guests
I love the diversity of topics and engaging podcast guests. The podcast helps me select interesting books to read and motivates me to further explore different topics.
It is my favourite podcast as it keeps my attention from the beginning to the end rather than letting my mind wander.
Keep up the great work!
