    Vaping: Facing A Crisis With Leading Expert Dr. Andrew Pipe

    Vaping: Facing A Crisis With Leading Expert Dr. Andrew Pipe

    I am so excited to be tackling this topic and being able to do it with Dr. Andrew Pipe, one of Canada's leading experts on this topic.

    I have already mentioned to my girlfriends that it's a must listen (especially for anyone with teenage aged kids). Its scary, eye opening and something you need to be be up to date with. Did you know there is an actutal vaping line of clothes desgined to conceal the actual vapes so kids can vape in class? Did you know, last month, the yougest victim to die from vaping related illness was just 15 years old and would you be surprised to know that vaping is harder to quit than smoking?

    I remember reading a quote by Dr. Andrew Pipe, former chief of the Division of Prevention and Rehabilitation at the University Of Ottawa Heart Institute and a professor in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Ottawa in which he stated. "Vaping is an issue that’s screaming for attention...we’re seeing a public health disaster unfolding in front of our eyes"

    Dr. Pipe, an Order of Canada recipient,  is currently involved in clinical research assessing new approaches to smoking cessation, strategies designed to facilitate exercise adoption and novel initiatives to prevent cardiovascular disease.

    He has addressed audiences in over 30 nations and is frequently consulted on issues related to tobacco use and smoking cessation, drug use in sport, and physical activity and health.

    Now he has school prinicipals and administrators eager for any of his time, guidance and advice on this crisis. At the end of the day- its going to come down to government poliicy and pressure by the public to make changes.

    Also a heads up- NO, I will not be bringing in someone from the Tabacco industry to counter the arguments :)

    The WimHof Method : How Cold Therapy, & Focused Breathing Is Changing Lives

    The WimHof Method : How Cold Therapy, & Focused Breathing Is Changing Lives

    Wim Hof , The man himself,  also known as "The Iceman"  got his nickname by breaking a number of records related to cold exposure. His feats include climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in shorts, running a half marathon above the Arctic Circle on his bare feet, and standing in a container while covered with ice cubes for more than 112 minutes.

    Here is a little background:

    Over time, we as humans have developed a different attitude towards nature and we've forgotten about our inner power. This is the ability of our body to adapt to extreme temperature and survive within our natural environment. Because we wear clothes and artificially control the temperatures at home and at work, we've greatly reduced the natural stimulation of our bodies, atrophying the age-old mechanisms related to our survival and basic function. Because these deeper physiological layers are no longer triggered, our bodies are no longer in touch with this inner power.

    The method itself is based on three princicples…cold therapy, breathing and commitment and has been said to help with a number of factors including stress reduction, better sleep, faster recovery, more creativity, better sports performance  increased focus and mental clarity along with certain medical conditions like inflammation. 

    There are those around the world who share and teach the WimHof way of life,  Johannes Egberts being one of them. Johannes, an avid biohacker who grew up in the Netherlands has been traveling the world teaching and inspiring others to live by the wimhof principles. He is quick to point out that he believes the Wimhof Method to be the most powerful and available tool to achieve health, happiness and strength. Johannes joined us from Sydney Australia for the podcast.

    Pregnancy, Miscarriages & IVF- How Scientist Dr. Amy Beckley Is Giving Couples A Fighting Chance

    Pregnancy, Miscarriages & IVF- How Scientist Dr. Amy Beckley Is Giving Couples A Fighting Chance

    I am hoping that some of you see the topic of this podcast and breathe a sigh of relief that it doesn't affect you. Infertility can be devastating for couples wanting children of their own. I am, however, really excited to bring you the information that could help you, your loved ones and future generations to come.  If you know people who are thinking of starting a family, trying to start a family or are struggling already with getting pregnant- please listen and share the content. This podcast also hits on a number of different health concerns and scientific studies that involve both men and woman alike.

    Joining us from Denver Colorado is Dr. Amy Beckley, a PHD scientist and infertility veteran who struggled herself getting pregnant and who experienced several miscarriages as well. 

    She is the inventor and founder of PROOV, a first of its kind at home progesterone kit. It’s an innovative new option for women trying to gain more of an understanding around their reproductive health and be empowered with data about their body that they never could have gotten in the comfort of their homes before.

    She has a PhD in Pharmacology and expertise in hormone signaling . She began tracking her own hormone levels at home and discovered that she had low progesterone—which was causing her to lose pregnancy after pregnancy. Progesterone is not a topic often discussed and we break down a number of reasons why this is the case.

    Empowered by this knowledge, she went to her doctor and got a prescription for hormone supplements. With these supplements, she was able to conceive without the help of IVF, and maintain a healthy pregnancy. After her daughter was born, her mission was clear—to empower women with vital knowledge that could help in their ability to conceive. She founded MFB Fertility, Inc. and invented the Proov test in her own basement, which now allows women to track their own progesterone in just five minutes, at home.
