How to Rewire Your Brain for Self-Healing With Dr. Joe Dispenza
Did you know that you can use the power of the mind to heal?
This is exactly what this week’s podcast guest did after a horrific biking accident that nearly left him paralyzed.
The brain is our most incredible organ and it’s capable of so much, perhaps even more than we could have ever imagined. And with the right knowledge, it can be rewired to undertake the kind of self-healing that even modern medicine isn’t capable of.
Dr. Joe Dispenza is the living example of everything he teaches. He is someone who went from being in the prime of his life to questioning if he will ever walk again - in a single moment. His injury was one that changed his life forever and paved the way to a new way of thinking. He is now the world-leading expert in rewiring your brain to help you heal from the inside out.
In this interview, Dr. Joe will walk you through the methodologies and the concept of emotional healing, how our thoughts and feelings are the vocabularies of the brain, and how we can actively control these to mobilize our body’s natural healing capacity.
Dr. Joe Dispenza is an international lecturer, researcher, and New York Times, bestselling author. As a lecturer and educator, he is passionate about the potential that each of us has for greatness and unlimited abilities - if we allow them.
In this week's episode with Joe you’ll discover:
About the injury that changed his life and why he decided to heal himself without medical intervention. The science of quite literally changing your mind and how you can do it yourself. How he reconstructed his entire body using the power of the mind. The negative effect of the body's stress response. How to open up the doors of possibility to answer the questions that aren’t available in a textbook or online. And much, much more. This incredibly transformational episode is packed with groundbreaking science and real, tangible ways to help heal. Now it’s time to put them to work.

The Powerful Benefits of an Anti-Inflammatory Diet with Ocean Robbins
The Powerful Benefits of an Anti-Inflammatory Diet with Ocean Robbins
What exactly is inflammation, and how do the foods we eat play a role in it?
In this episode with Ocean Robbins, our conversation centers around an anti-inflammatory diet, the overwhelming health benefits of this lifestyle, and the top foods to eat to support it. Ocean explores the key factors that contribute to inflammation and, if left unaddressed, the long-term implications of chronic cases.
It surprises people to know that inflammation is actually a naturally occurring reaction in the body. This process allows the body to heal itself when we get a cut, bump, or bruise. What isn’t normal, or isn’t ideal, is long-term chronic inflammation. Our bodies aren’t built to withstand that kind of pressure, and often this results in the development of chronic disease. That’s why it’s essential that we begin to shift towards an anti-inflammatory diet.
Ocean Robbins is a passionate advocate of food as medicine. Alongside his father, John Robbins, he is the founder of Food Revolution Network, an online-based education and advocacy-driven organization committed to healthy, ethical, sustainable food for all.
In this week's episode with Ocean Robbins, you’ll discover:
The key lifestyle and nutritional factors that contribute to inflammation. How inflammation is actually a natural response from the immune system to protect the body. How to combat and prevent chronic inflammation through nutrition (no drugs necessary). Ocean's top 7 foods to fight inflammation and the best plant-based source of omega-3s. Plus, so much more.

Read Ocean’s best-selling book, 31 Day Food Revolution, (book) Order John Robbins’ book, Diet For A New America (book) Throughout this conversation, you’ll begin to understand why inflammation is one of the most talked-about topics in the industry, and you’ll learn real, tangible ways to heal.
How To Stop Stress Eating & Kick Bad Habits for Good with Marc David
Stress eating is a habit that many of us are all too familiar with. But in times of need, it makes sense right? We typically reach for the foods that bring us comfort. The issue arises when we find ourselves in periods of prolonged, chronic stress, with food being our savior. That’s when it becomes a habit that we need to take a deeper look at. In this week's episode with Marc David, we’re doing exactly that. Marc is the Founder and primary teacher of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating. He's a leading visionary, teacher, and consultant in Nutritional Psychology, and the author of the classic, groundbreaking, and bestselling books Nourishing Wisdom and The Slow Down Diet.
For more than three decades Marc has paved the way in eating psychology and nutrition and I'm excited to talk to him today about:
The importance of our relationship with food and its impact on our highest potential. The impact of stress on our appetite, digestion, and overall health. Common causes of emotional eating (e.g. binge eating) and how to identify them. How the Slow Down diet works and its relation to stress impact. The physiological impacts of fast eating. Roadblocks to having a healthy relationship with food & everlasting self-love. The interconnection between beauty & confidence.
And so much more!
