    About Chef James Barry

    James Barry’s 16 + years in the culinary field started as a private chef.

Upon returning to Los Angeles, Chef James Barry continued to private chef and had the fortune of cooking for celebrities such as Tom Cruise, Mariska Hargitay, George Clooney, Gerard Butler, Sean “Puffy” Combs, Barbra Streisand, and John Cusack.

    Break The Rules #150: Retraining the Brain without Drugs with Psychiatrist Dr. Steve Haltiwanger, MD

    Break The Rules #150: Retraining the Brain without Drugs with Psychiatrist Dr. Steve Haltiwanger, MD

    Special Links & Show Notes

    1 in 4 people struggle with anxiety or some other mental health condition. The solution? Many clinicians will tell you “Therapy, stress management and SSRI antidepressant medications.” However, what they don’t tell you is that SSRI’s and talk therapy alone may not be as effective as previously thought–with less than a 25% success rate. Dr. Steve Haltiwanger had a different solution. In this episode, he brings his 40 years of psychiatry and nutrition experience to offer several at-home nutrition and brain hacks, including Alpha-Stim, that you can do at home to take your health back into your own hands.

    Bio

    Steve Haltiwanger, MD, CCN, FAIS was the Chief Medical Officer at Electromedical Products International makers of Alpha-Stim. He had been the Medical Director of Professional Formulas and the Health and Science Director of LifeWave Inc. Over the course of his career Dr. Haltiwange also served in other medical and science leadership capacities including directing several health programs.

    After earning a B.S. in Professional Chemistry from Valdosta State University in Valdosta, Georgia, Dr. Haltiwanger attended the Medical College of Georgia. While there he completed medical school and a one-year fellowship in Pathology. He graduated from the Medical College of Georgia with an M.D. degree in 1980. He completed a Psychiatry and Neurology residency at the University of South Carolina in 1984. In 2003, he became a CCN (Certified Clinical Nutritionist). He currently is a member of the scientific council of the International and American Association of Clinical Nutritionists. In 2019 he became a Fellow of the American Institute of Stress.

    He began an integrative medical practice in 1984 when he realized that nutritional, gastrointestinal, allergic, immunological, and toxic issues were involved in the psychiatric and neurological conditions that he was seeing and that drug therapy alone was at best only partially effective. Thirty years ago, he was introduced to Dr. Hans Nieper’s mineral transporters. He used these nutrients in thousands of patents and consulted by phone with hundreds of doctors about the effective use of these supplements over the last three decades.

    Dr. Haltiwanger was the last known physician to study in Germany with world-renowned German internist, scientist and nutrient developer, Hans A. Nieper, M.D., to advance his knowledge of the treatment of neurological conditions, cancer, anti-aging, and regeneration. For 34 years, he presented at many national conferences and international conferences in 17 countries.

    Dr. Haltiwanger has been involved in 72 research studies. Dr. Haltiwanger’s research included combining electromagnetic, acoustic and phototherapy treatments with nutritional supplementation. He also researched the effects of PEMF on neurological diseases (multiple sclerosis and diabetic neuropathy). As magnetic resonance, light and sound all affect the body in various ways, through the same cellular frequency windows; Dr. Haltiwanger worked in the past with researchers correlating the frequencies emitted by an individual’s voice with internal physiological states and dysfunctions. He coordinated clinical research on using sound to determine what chemical compounds are present in the human body. He supervised numerous studies on how infrared and red light affect energy production, hormone production, wound healing, athletic activity, antioxidant levels, pain control, sleep, EEG changes, cardiac responses, muscle strength, neurological function and more. He formulated numerous nutritional formulas in his role as a consultant to companies.

    During four decades Dr. Haltiwanger built a reputation for being a caring physician with old-fashioned values,
