    10. Sportverletzungen überwinden und stärker zurückkommen mit Gabriel & Nicolas Lüchinger

    10. Sportverletzungen überwinden und stärker zurückkommen mit Gabriel & Nicolas Lüchinger

    Verletzungen im Spitzensport gehören praktisch zum Arbeitsalltag dazu. Natürlich versucht man einen Grossteil davon zu verhindern und präventiv mit gezieltem Training vorzubeugen. Wenn es jedoch doch mal zu einer Verletzung kommt, ist die Regenerierung und der Wiederaufbau zur Topform Priorität Nummer 1. Diese Phase ist also ganz zentral und die darin getroffenen Massnahmen definieren schlussendlich den Wiedereinstieg in den Sport und die Teilnahme an Wettbewerben.

    Die beiden heutigen Gäste Gabriel Lüchinger und Nicolas Lüchinger haben beide eine Vergangenheit mit Verletzungen und haben gelernt, damit umzugehen. Sie beide spielen in der Schweizer Super League, der höchsten Schweizer Liga im Fussball. Gabriel spielt als Mittelfeldspieler beim FC Vaduz aus Liechtenstein und Nicolas in der Verteidigung beim FC St. Gallen.

    In dieser Episode erzählen sie beide von ihrem Aufwachsen und der Bedeutung von Sport und natürlich speziell dem Fussball. Sie geben dann einen Überblick über ihre Verletzungsgeschichte und wie sie damit umgehen und bereits umgegangen sind. Sie geben Tipps und Tricks rund um die Erholungs- und Aufbauphase, was sie gemacht haben und erzählen, was ihnen besonders geholfen hat. Beide haben es sich zum Ziel gesetzt, nach ihren Verletzungen stets stärker zurückzukommen und das ist ihnen stets gelungen.

    9. Vegane Schwangerschaft und frühe Kindheit mit Carolin Wiedmann, MD alias The Plant Power Pedriatrician

    9. Vegane Schwangerschaft und frühe Kindheit mit Carolin Wiedmann, MD alias The Plant Power Pedriatrician

    "Im Zusammenhang mit veganen Schwangerschaften erscheinen oft nur fehlgeschlagene und tragische Ausnahmefälle in den Medien. Und sie wären absolut vermeidbar." - Carolin Wiedmann, MD

    Was es bedeutet vegan zu sein ist heutzutage fast überall bekannt. Das es überhaupt möglich ist und sogar noch gesundheitliche Vorteile bringen kann, ebenfalls. Spätestens in der Schwangerschaft oder dem Aufziehen von Kindern ist dann jedoch Schluss. Um dieses Thema geht es in der heutigen Episode mit Carolin Wiedmann.

    Carolin ist Pädiaterin und ist Spezialistin im Bereich Ernährung. Sie hat sich seit ihrem Studium mit Fragen rund um eine gesunde, und später dann vegane, Ernährung beschäftigt. Heute engagiert sie sich stark dafür, eine vollwertig pflanzliche Ernährungsform in ihre Arbeit einfliessen zu lassen. In der Praxis versucht sie die Krankheiten ihrer Patienten nicht nur auf die konventionelle Art zu behandeln, sondern auch mit evidenzbasierter Interventionen rund um die Ernährung.

    Im Gespräch gehen wir etwas vertiefter ins Thema Schwangerschaft und frühe Kindheit und wie eine gut geplante vegane Ernährungsform auch in diesen speziellen Lebensabschnitten möglich ist. Carolin Wiedman berät und behandelt tagtäglich Familien, die sich vegan ernähren und dies auch in der Schwangerschaft, der Stillzeit und beim Aufziehen ihrer Kinder tun möchten. Sie weiss genau, auf was es ankommt und wo die Herausforderungen liegen.

    Für mich persönlich ist dieses Thema gerade sehr aktuell, da ich einige Personen kenne, die gerade Schwanger sind oder kürzlich Eltern geworden sind. Sie sind zwar nicht vegan, aber ich denke, dass dieses Thema für alle - unabhängig der Ernährungsform - sehr wichtig ist.

    Danke fürs Zuhören und bis zum nächsten Mal,
    Niklas

    8. Solar-Powered around the World with Raphaël Domjan

    8. Solar-Powered around the World with Raphaël Domjan

    "Climate change is a huge problem we face today. But I like to see it as an opportunity to change things as they are." - Raphaël Domjan

    Some time ago, circumnavigating the world was a huge undertaking and a great adventure. Today it is no longer a feat. But if you do it on a ship, it becomes more adventurous. If you are now on a ship, which is only powered by solar energy, you come very close to the adventures of past times. Our guest today in this episode has done just that. The PlanetSolar project was born from a crazy idea. From 2010 to 2012 on a catamaran with more than 500 square meters of solar panels on the roof, Raphaël Domjan has travelled around the world starting from Monaco.

    With the PlanetSolar project, his current SolarStratos project and a number of other projects, Raphaël wants to show what is possible with solar energy. He has made it his life's work to promote renewable energies and especially solar energy as far as possible. I think it needs pioneers like Raphaël Domjan, who believe in something so strongly and put ideas into practice. This is really very inspiring and I hope that this conversation will encourage some people to do exactly what he or she believes in.

    In this episode Raphaël talks about his adventures and his current project SolarStratos. It was really very interesting to hear what he is doing and what his plans for the future are. I highly recommend to have a look at the links in the show notes to get a deeper picture of his projects.

    Thanks for listening and hear you next time,
    Niklas

    7. Beyond Long Distances: Roy Hinnen Talks Life, Lessons Learned and is 100% Triathlon

    7. Beyond Long Distances: Roy Hinnen Talks Life, Lessons Learned and is 100% Triathlon

    "It is questions that trigger the thought process in others. With only the answer there is no process." - Roy Hinnen

    We all know what happens when you overwork yourself over a long period of time and don't find a suitable balance: you burn out. The fact that this is also the case in sports, and especially in professional competitive sports with too much and too intensive training, is often not so obvious.

    Daily exertion in sports, too little regeneration and too little patience. This led to a burnout for Roy Hinnen, guest in this episode. At the age of 18 years Roy started with triathlon and without further ado he decided then to tackle the whole thing professionally. He moved to the USA and trained there with Dave Scott and Mark Allen. In 1987 he was the first to bring the infamous Scott aerobar to Europe and immediately became Swiss Champion. He was able to build on this success four more times in a row before he ended his professional career due to the circumstances described above. Roy Hinnen's personal long distance best time is 8:35 hours, which he achieved in 1991. He has 30 years of triathlon experience, is author of the best-selling triathlon book in Switzerland TRIATHLON TOTAL: Your way to a new best time as well as 100% triathlon eats 95% vegan and practices Zen meditation.

    In this episode Roy talks about his past and some milestones in his life that have had a lasting impact on him. He especially focuses on his way of dealing with people and shows which lessons he has learned and how he incorporates them into his coaching.

    6. Running Far and Lifting Heavy with Vegan Athlete Manuel Granegger aka the Vegran

    6. Running Far and Lifting Heavy with Vegan Athlete Manuel Granegger aka the Vegran

    "Don't overthink it too much, just start. Everything else you'll learn on your journey." - Manuel Granegger

    How do I get fit? This is probably the question a large number of people ask themselves every day. Where do I start? How do I start? What does it mean to be fit anyway?

    Manuel Granegger answers these questions from his point of view and experience in this episode. He shows his journey in his personal life and how he got into sports. It is clear that this journey does not always run straight and does not present any obstacles. Manuel explains how one can overcome such obstacles and what one can gain from it.

    Coming from a background of doing gymnastics competitively and eventually joining the military Manuel got in touch with a lot of activities early on. He tried out several things and had to overcome the abuse of alcohol and tobacco to eventually get there, where he is now. Today he runs marathons, does functional fitness in the form of CrossFit and lives a very active and healthy life. All this while working full-time.

    Not only sport defines Manuel's life. He is also vegan. The topic of veganism and animal rights is more than a matter of the heart for him. He gives the animals a voice and speaks openly and unfiltered about the unpleasant things that go along with it. In this episode he tells how and why he became vegan and how he puts this into practise as an athlete. He not only shows that it is possible to be just vegan but to be extremely fit and healthy while eating a plant based, vegan diet.

    After the conversation Manuel told me that he hadn't mentioned his current girlfriend in the episode. He owed her so much and actually wanted to mention her in the podcast. So he dedicated a post on Instagram to her: https://bit.ly/36142Sn

    5. Gut Health and the impact on Your overall Health: Dr. med. Christian Simma on how to optimize your Microbiome and reclaim health

    5. Gut Health and the impact on Your overall Health: Dr. med. Christian Simma on how to optimize your Microbiome and reclaim health

    "Aim to eat as many different kinds of plant foods as possible." - Dr. med. Christian Simma

    So many different things influence our health. Be it movement, our social environment or environmental influences. But perhaps the biggest influence is our diet. Especially important in this context is our intestinal health. The intestine is where all the nutrients are absorbed into the body. The digestive system is not just a tube through which food goes in and out, but consists largely of the microbiome. It is so extensive and has such an importance in the body that it is even called the "super organ".

    The microbiome is made up of many different microorganisms like bacteria, fungi or viruses (not all viruses are bad) that live in the intestines, but also in the mouth, throat, nose and g******s. The number of microorganisms is almost unimaginable. The majority of cells in the human body are bacteria. If we define ourselves according to this, we are actually more microorganism than human. We need the microbiome to be able to process indigestible dietary fiber. There are no digestive enzymes for dietary fiber and for this we need the microbiome. The microorganisms feed on the starches and can thus multiply and release health-promoting substances into the organism, which leads to a healthy intestine. What a fascinating topic!

    In this episode I talk to Dr. med. Christian Simma. He is a general practitioner in Rüthi in the east of Switzerland. Early on he dealt with the topic of nutrition and its effects on health. He goes into his career and shows the connection between western diseases and nutrition. Finally, he deepens the topic around the microbiome and gives tips on how to build a healthy gut flora.

    Personally, I think this is a topic that everyone should have heard of at least once. The topic is highly complex and can never be covered within a single podcast episode. I have linked some resources in the Show Notes below. The contact details for Dr. Christian Simma are also linked.
