    471: Breaking Free from Functional Freeze: A Deep Dive into a Core Wound Mapping Process

    471: Breaking Free from Functional Freeze: A Deep Dive into a Core Wound Mapping Process

    In Part 2 of our series with JJ Flizanes, we delve deeper into the transformative process of Core Wound Mapping. Building upon the foundation laid in Part 1, we embark on a vulnerable journey of self-discovery and healing.
    Guided by JJ, I open up about my personal experiences and explore the core wounds that have shaped my life. Together, we navigate through layers of emotions and memories, uncovering patterns and triggers that have held me back.
    The process of Core Wound Mapping involves peeling back the layers of past traumas and childhood experiences to identify the roots of our emotional struggles. With JJ's guidance, I confront these core wounds head-on, recognizing their impact on my thoughts, behaviors, and relationships.
    Through this introspective journey, I gain valuable insights into my own psyche and begin to understand the underlying beliefs that have been limiting my growth. JJ's expertise in helping individuals transmute struggle into joy shines through as she offers compassionate support and practical advice.
    As we unravel the complexities of my core wounds, I am reminded of the power of neuroplasticity and somatic healing practices. By rewiring our brains and releasing stored trauma from our bodies, we can break free from the cycle of functional freeze and step into our full potential.
    Sharing this vulnerable experience with our listeners, I hope to inspire others to embark on their own journey of self-discovery and healing. By confronting our core wounds and embracing the process of rewiring our brains, we can transform our lives and create a future filled with joy, abundance, and fulfillment.
    Food Heals Nation, I invite you to join JJ in exploring the transformative power of Core Wound Mapping and experience a consciousness upgrade for yourselves.  Mark your calendars for the Consciousness Upgrade Summit, April 17th and 18th.

    Have you heard about NAD+? It’s one of the most important molecules in the human body to age well. NAD+ helps promote cellular energy, maintain healthy DNA, detect nutrients efficiently, supports detoxification, and supports your cellular health. Simply put, keeping your NAD+ levels high is VITAL to helping the body feel youthful. 
    But did you know NAD+ levels plummet with age? By age 50, most people’s NAD+ levels are only HALF of what they were at age 20.
    Luckily, science has discovered a way to boost your NAD+ levels up to 50%!†*
    It’s called Qualia NAD+, a groundbreaking supplement from Neurohacker Collective. The reason so many health experts are partnering with Neurohacker and the reason I’m proud to have them sponsor this podcast is you’re simply not going to find more carefully researched, life-changing nutritional formulas, especially for aging well.
    To boost YOUR NAD+ levels up to 50%, Go to neurohacker.com/FH for up to 50% off and use code FH at checkout for an additional 15% off.

    470: Rewire Your Reality: How to Heal Emotional Pain and Transform Your Life with Core Wound Mapping

    470: Rewire Your Reality: How to Heal Emotional Pain and Transform Your Life with Core Wound Mapping

    Have you heard of neuroplasticity? In simple terms, it's the brain's ability to change and adapt due to experience.
    In more complex terms, it's the ability of neural networks in the brain to change through growth and reorganization. These changes range from individual neuron pathways making new connections to systematic adjustments like cortical remapping or neural oscillation.
    What it means for us is that when we feel stuck, we can break free by challenging ourselves to do something different, which in turn rewires our brains. Cool, right?
    My guest today helps people rewire their brains through a process she calls Core Wound Mapping. JJ Flizanes works with conscious, spiritual truth-seekers who want to remove emotional blocks to success. She helps people identify sabotaging patterns and transmute struggle into joy.
    In this episode, JJ shares that by discovering our core wounds, which usually occur in childhood, we can rewire our brains as adults and break free of old wounds and patterns that are holding us prisoner.
    This is a two-part episode. Part One is my interview with JJ, and in part two, I am volunteering as tribute! That's right, I'm getting vulnerable. You'll hear JJ take me through a process of uncovering my core wounds and give me some advice on how to let go of the past and move forward with grace and ease and show up better in the world for myself and others.
    If you like this content, JJ does have a free event where you can learn more. It's an online summit - mark your calendars for April 17th and 18th for her Consciousness Upgrade Summit.

    469: The Power Foods Diet: The Breakthrough Plan That Traps, Tames, and Burns Calories for Easy and Permanent Weight Loss

    469: The Power Foods Diet: The Breakthrough Plan That Traps, Tames, and Burns Calories for Easy and Permanent Weight Loss

    What if there was an evidenced-based, food-as-medicine protocol for kick-starting weight-loss and keeping it off permanently?

    That's what my guest, Dr. Neal Barnard is back on the show to discuss!

    To remind you, Dr. Barnard is President of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine and was featured in Forks Over Knives, What The Health, Plant Pure Nation, Supersize Me, and many more incredible films, and has been a guest on this podcast probably 4-5 times now.

    His brand new book, The Power Foods Diet: The Breakthrough Plan That Traps, Tames, and Burns Calories for Easy and Permanent Weight Loss just released Tuesday, I was honored to get a copy and I am just pouring over every single word.

    Weight loss is one of our top health concerns, so much so that we keep looking for good ways to lose weight, preferably a way that is easy, effective, and permanent. It turns out that, when properly  chosen, certain foods cause weight loss, with no need for the deprivation and planning that most weight-loss regimens require. 

    In the book, Dr. Barnard reveals three breakthroughs that are supported by research, revealing that certain foods:
    1.  can reduce the appetite
    2.  trap calories so they are flushed away and cannot be absorbed, and,
    3.  increase the body’s ability to burn calories for about three hours after each meal. 

    These breakthroughs make weight loss incredibly easy, without calorie counting or deprivation. This diet encourages people to eat, not to stop eating. Dr. Barnard also reveals that some of the foods we think are good for us can actually be harmful, like salmon, goat cheese, and coconut oil, all of which pass easily into body fat...and often overstay their welcome. 

    To make it easy, Dr. Barnard includes a simple to follow meal plan that includes delicious, and even indulgent plant-based recipes which include foods we have often been told to avoid, like potatoes and pasta, so you can eat real food, and still lose real weight.

    Everyone wants to slow down the signs of aging, but very few people are going about it the right way. The negative aspects of aging are one of the most ubiquitous challenges to quality of life. Scientists believe that part of the reason we experience aging the way we do is because of stressed or worn-out cells called senescent cells.* 
    Qualia Senolytic combines our legendary “complexity science” formulation approach with science-backed ingredients shown to help decrease senescent cells. Its goals are similar to those of pruning a plant: support efficient use of cellular resources, encourage the regeneration of more youthful cells, and ultimately support tissue health and appearance—promoting whole-body cellular rejuvenation.
