    Hypnosis 101: What It Really Is, What It Can Do For You & How to Use It Yourself with Dr. David Spiegel

    Hypnosis 101: What It Really Is, What It Can Do For You & How to Use It Yourself with Dr. David Spiegel

    Have you ever been hypnotized?
    When you hear the word hypnosis, I’m willing to bet the first thing you think of is those stage performances where an audience member is instructed to do something ridiculous. But in reality, hypnosis is so much more than that, and it can truly benefit you in many ways. Whether you want to stress less, sleep better, manage pain, lose weight, overcome fears, or improve professional performance, hypnosis can help you do it.
    This week’s Beyond Influential guest, Dr. David Spiegel is the expert when it comes to clinical hypnosis, and his mission is to help destigmatize hypnosis and show you how you can use the power of your own mind to heal and achieve. I wanted to have Dr. Spiegel on because this isn’t pseudoscience; what we discuss today is backed by decades of scientific research and clinical experience.
    Dr. Spiegel has a laundry list of accomplishments and accolades, including degrees from Yale and Harvard Medical School. He is currently serving as Willson Professor and Associate Chair of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences, Director of the Center on Stress and Health, and Medical Director of the Center for Integrative Medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine, where he has been a member of the academic faculty since 1975.
    Dr. Spiegel has more than 40 years of clinical and research experience studying psycho-oncology, stress and health, pain control, sleep, hypnosis, and more. He has published thirteen books, over 400 scientific journal articles, and contributed over 170 book chapters on hypnosis, psychosocial oncology, stress physiology, trauma, and psychotherapy. His research has been supported by the National Institute of Mental Health, the National Cancer Institute, the National Institute on Aging, and several other organizations. He is Past President of the American College of Psychiatrists and the Society for Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis. He was also invited to speak on hypnosis at the World Economic Forum in Davos in 2018. 
    On top of all of this, Dr. Spiegel is also the Co-Founder and Chief Scientific Officer at Reveri, which is an app designed to help you learn and use the proven techniques of self-hypnosis to experience the benefits of hypnosis quickly and conveniently. 
    On Ep. 182, we cover:
    Hypnosis: What it is & how it works Benefits of Hypnosis: How it can help with everything from reducing stress, anxiety, and depression to overcoming addiction, trauma, and phobias, to pain management, weight loss, better sleep, and improved focus Clinical vs. Stage Hypnosis: What’s the difference? Can you be hypnotized? How to tell if you’re hypnotizable Hypnosis vs. meditation: Similarities and differences Induction techniques and best practices for self-hypnosis Reveri: building the app, and the future of hypnosis Book Recommendation Trance and Treatment: Clinical Uses of Hypnosis by Herbert Spiegel, MD and David Spiegel, MD https://amzn.to/3JjA0es
    App I've been loving!
    I want to share a breathwork app that I’ve been loving that I think you’ll really love too. It’s called Othership, and it’s really helped me better manage stress and anxiety, and improve my sleep, focus, and mindfulness. 
    Othership usually offers a 7-day free trial, but with my link, you can get 14-days for free! https://www.brittanykrystle.com/othership

    Feel Your Best: How to Optimize Your Diet with Data and Improve Your Metabolic Health with Dr. Lauren Kelley-Chew of Levels Health

    Feel Your Best: How to Optimize Your Diet with Data and Improve Your Metabolic Health with Dr. Lauren Kelley-Chew of Levels Health

    What if you could see in real-time how what you’re eating affects your health? 
    We all know we should be “eating healthy”—but what does that mean exactly? Health is not one size fits all and with so much competing advice out there, I’m excited to introduce you to this week’s guest, Dr. Lauren Kelley-Chew. 
    Lauren is a physician entrepreneur whose background includes private equity, a Y-Combinator backed digital therapeutics startup, and leading strategy and business operations at Verily Life Sciences (formerly Google X) where she focused on devices and emerging products.
    She is currently the Head of Clinical Product at Levels Health, a startup dedicated to improving your metabolic health by helping you make better (and tangible) lifestyle choices through personalized data. Levels uses wearable biosensors like continuous glucose monitors (CGMs) to show you how the foods you eat affect your body specifically, in a quantifiable way. 
    This is incredibly important because metabolic dysfunction and insulin resistance is at epidemic levels in the US and it’s tied to virtually every symptom or disease you can think of—diabetes, Alzheimer’s, high blood pressure, cancer, depression, anxiety, infertility, chronic fatigue, acne, psoriasis, and more. The good news is that it’s largely reversible by making some simple habit changes, which can go a long way in helping to prevent chronic disease and improve your quality of life.
    I’ve been excited about what Levels is doing and where they plan to expand. They have an all-star team of MD’s, former SpaceX and Google engineers, advisors including previous guest Dr. Molly Maloof, Dr. Mark Hyman, Dom D'Agostino, Ph.D., Dr. Sara Gottfried, and David Sinclair, Ph.D., and huge investors backing them.
    On Ep. 181, we cover:
    Why Lauren ditched the traditional medical practice route and her experience as a woman working in the tech scene Metabolic Health: What it is, why it’s important, how it relates to diet, sleep, exercise, and stress, and how it’s affected by glucose and insulin How CGMs can help you optimize your diet What she learned using Levels for herself, and how she's adjusted her diet Women’s health, the keto diet, and how it affects men and women differently Optimal blood sugar levels, what order you should eat your food, and other actionable tips Behind the scenes of Levels Health—their culture, content process, and more! Book Recommendation Women, Food, And Hormones: A 4-Week Plan to Achieve Hormonal Balance, Lose Weight, and Feel Like Yourself Again by Sara Gottfried, MD https://amzn.to/3IOqe3A
    App I'm Loving! Othership has a really effective breathwork app that I’ve been loving and use regularly, and I think you’ll really love it too. It's super intuitive and non-intimidating, and it’s made it really easy for me to create and sustain a practice.
