    Fertility Formulas with Patricia Karnowski, #ORadio

    Fertility Formulas with Patricia Karnowski, #ORadio

    Ostrolenk speaks with Patricia Karnowski, who has been helping women get pregnant naturally for more than 19 years. She has a masters degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in New York City. Karnowski discusses the path that led her to this work and her experience with women around the globe. Despite cultural differences, she’s come to learn that there is a near universal lack of understanding among women about their own body and fertility. When helping clients become pregnant, she focuses on their body holistically, and when creating custom-made formulas, she reviews and analyzes your health history to gain an understanding of exactly how your body works. Karnowski also discusses her own transition to minimalism and the Van Life movement.

    Ostrolenk speaks with Johnathan Lang, an Iraq War Veteran and Natural Movement Coach who loves helping folks find more meaning, health, and wholeness in their lives.

    Lang details the life events that led him to the path of coaching, including his service in Iraq, though which experiences with both death and love taught him the importance of living a life that constrains evil and harnesses good.

He is now living and working outside of Medellin, Colombia, and he shares his experience in collaborating with Colombian professional soccer players on MovNat, and his work in creating a dedicated retreat and research center for the integration of Natural Movement with permaculture, ancestral medicine, and other transformational psycho-technologies.

    Integral Relationships with Martin Ucik, #ORadio

    Ostrolenk speaks to Martin Ucik, author of "Integral Relationships: A Manual for Men” and “Sex Purpose Love.” Ucik details how he discovered Integral Philosophy, and his journey to discover meaningful relationships, sex, love, and passion. Discovering the three things that lead to happiness - healthy relationships, healthy body and mind, and purpose – has inspired his work in teaching and writing. Ucik discusses his own purpose: the drive to help others cultivate healthy relationships. In doing such, one must appreciate the complexity of people and that they bring to the table different value systems; key to cultivating healthy relationships, Ucik argues, is a shared purpose.
