    Should We Ban COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates? (Part 2)

    Should We Ban COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates? (Part 2)

    Should we reject or support COVID-19 vaccine mandates in our states? It's a question that has sharply divided Americans like we had never seen before. In this Part 2 episode of our COVID-19 series, we sit down with two essential healthcare workers, Tina and Lily, who argue against the COVID-19 vaccine mandates. We talk about the waning COVID-19 vaccine immunity and reluctance to discuss the power of natural immunity. It leads us to a passionate conversation on myths about anti-vaxxers, discrimination, stigmatization, and punishing the unvaccinated.

    🙋‍♂️ MEET THE HOST - Anthony Amen
    My personal training journey started in college. Before that, I was never really into any aspect of fitness. I ate what I wanted, ran a 15 min/mile and couldn’t tell you the difference between a plank or a pushup. That all changed in college when I began playing intramural sports. Through complete trial and error, I quickly learned the technique and became obsessed with the gym. It wasn’t long until I learned how I could change my life and realized I can now accomplish things that everyone told me would be impossible. 

    Personal Training has taught me how to pass this knowledge onto others. I truly understand what it feels like to be hopeless and lost. I’ve helped many different clients of all backgrounds achieve their goals; this allowed them to witness changes that they didn't think were possible. 

    Redefine Fitness is my answer to all fitness questions. It's not about having the biggest muscles or being the fastest runner, rather it is about helping you redefine yourself into the best version that you can be! My goal now is to spread the word that life isn't worth giving up on and anyone can achieve anything.  I plan on growing Redefine Fitness to a fully established brand, push myself into motivational speaking and eventually leave a permanent mark on this world

    How COVID-19 Vaccine Can Enhance Your Natural Immune Response (Part 1)

    In this episode, we discuss the "Biological Soul", and Dr. Bob walks us through the ways immune system works and draws an analogy between natural immune response and a police department. We turn to the topic of COVID-19 vaccine and how it can enhance the average immune system to recognize and catch the "criminal" that interferes with the Biological Soul. This one's a spicy topic, but please enjoy!

Lahita is a Clinical Professor of Medicine at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, a Professor at New York Medical College, and the Chairman of the Department of Medicine at St. Joseph's Healthcare System. Dr. Bob is the author of more than 16 books and 150 scientific publications in the field of autoimmunity.

    How To Curb Emotional Eating?

    How To Curb Emotional Eating?

    #overeating and #emotionaleating are more prevalent in our lives then we care to admit.  From binging on high sugary snacks at night to burying our faces in fried, fatty foods, we always tend to curb our emotions with food.

    Food unlike alcohol, isn't something we can just stop doing.  We can't just stop eating like we can with booze or cigarettes.
    So how do we control it?

    First we have to ask why do we emotionally eat?
    Emotionally eating usually stems from wanting to take out daily stressors with food to help bury and hid our emotions.
    There are two ways to help confront this:
    1. Take a stand to that stressor.  Learn how to cope and work with that stressor instead of letting it linger throughout your days and weeks.
    2. Take out that stress with something else.  Tons of us, reach for unhealthy options when it comes to stress like booze or food. We then eat or drink way too much, to only stress more about our healthy and not be in the right mindset going forward.  So what if, you took that stress out in a positive way?
    #meditating #exercising #hiking #wellnessspas  or other options that will help not only relax you, but put you towards a more positive approach.

    Tricia Nelson, Founder of Heal Your Hunger really breaks down different ways to help you approach this daunting task.

    Algae For Everyone

    Algae For Everyone

    When you hear about algae, what do you think?
    That gross stuff that I keep tripping on when I get into the water. 
    Or maybe, that stuff smells and is for fish

    What if we told you that algae is something you should not only be consuming but, having on a regular basis?

    No really, eating algae has tons of benefits and Catharine from EnergyBits, tells us all about why

    Who is Catharine?
    Catharine started ENERGYbits after her sister was diagnosed with breast cancer and advised by her oncologist that an alkaline diet would help her heal. Catharine immediately sprung into action to help her sister research alkaline foods and in the process she discovered algae. When Catharine learned that algae was the most alkaline, plant-based, nutrient-dense food in the world and had been used for fifty years in Asia to improve health and longevity, she knew she had discovered something big (and yes, her sister fully recovered - thanks for asking).
    As Catharine dug into the science of algae, she learned it had 64% protein, 40 vitamins/minerals and was endorsed by the United Nations and NASA as the most nutrient dense food in the world. She also discovered there were 100,000 studies documenting its long list of benefits and it was the most sustainable, eco-friendly food crop in the world. And yet algae remained virtually unknown outside of Asia. How could this be possible? Catharine knew algae could be a game changer for our health, our children and our world if she could only convince people it wasn't weird. And so ENERGYbits was born.
    It took Catharine ten years to bring algae into the mainstream and build ENERGYbits into a national company. We're glad she finally did, because now you and your family can benefit from our naturally grown, toxin-free, Non-GMO algae tablets too. A handful will help satisfy your hunger, help give you steady energy, and help ensure your nutritional needs are met. All this from a food that has one ingredient, no chemicals, caffeine, sugar or processing and is the most sustainable, safe, eco-friendly, crop in the world - algae.
    Scientists have found that Spirulina has “immune-stimulant activities. It is able to increase the production and activity of bone marrow stem cells, macrophages, and T-cells. It improves cell nucleus enzyme activity, and DNA repair capacity. As such, it has a role in cancer treatment and inhibits HIV-1 replication in human-derived T-cell lines” (Ramasubramania Raja, 2016). [1] Other scientists confirm that “Spirulina contains functional compounds, such as phenolics, phycocyanins, and polysaccharides, with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and immunostimulating effects”. “Spirulina not only supports the immune system but its ability to reduce inflammation makes it “ useful in the prevention of the metabolic syndrome which is characterized by low-grade inflammation, oxidative stress, and intestinal dysbiosis” [2]

    What is Chlorella?
    Chlorella is quickly becoming well known (along with spirulina) as one of the world’s healthiest foods. With so many reasons to take it, including detox, immune support, and better athletic performance, chlorella will soon be in green smoothies across the country! While the issues concerning our agriculture and environment seem to be growing more alarming, there is one simple way to help your body in its battle with toxins – chlorella algae.

    A Psychedelic Awakening

    A Psychedelic Awakening

    In western medicine, we rely heavily on Big Pharma and all the drugs they push out to help cure things like #depression , #anxiety , and other #mentalillnesses .  But they lack in understanding of understanding #psychedelics that have been used for over 15,000 years.  Including things like Magic Mushrooms, which only until about 5 years ago have even been researched.

    Jonathan de Potter really didn't understand anything about this field, until he started his own personally journey of self-discovery at a retreat in Peru.  This experience really opened his eyes into understanding that there is more to life then any egocentric thoughts or beliefs, so he started his own practice that has evolved into making an individual go from good to great!

    At Behold Retreats, we facilitate life-changing plant medicine (psychedelic) journeys to elevate our clients to peak performance and well-being.
    We guide clients that are ready to accelerate personal and spiritual growth to realize the full transformational benefits of psychedelic medicine like 5-MeO-DMT, Ayahuasca, and Psilocybin and provide safety, expertise, and curation, with memorable private and group retreats available in idyllic locations.
    With two decades of proven science and neurology on the subject of plant medicine from JHU, Harvard, Yale, etc, not to mention the recent Compass Pathways $1Bn IPO, this topic is set to radically improve our collective trajectory.
    Through our journey to guide clients to maximize the benefits of plant medicine, we have been networking extensively with industry leaders, developing insights to accelerate self-improvement that may be of interest to your audience.
    I had the privilege to be a guest on Healing Intentions hosted by Dr. Adrian Mehmedi. If you’d like a deeper insight into plant medicine, this is a great place to start.

    So take a dive into understanding more about plant based medicine and watch the world around you unfold!

    Take A Seat

    Take A Seat

    We all sit.
    But did you know that the average American sits almost 13 hours a day?!?!

    So is sitting all that bad?
    Sitting has been shown to increase your chances of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and greatly increases your risk for dying at a younger age.

    No this doesn't mean that you need to constantly move, it just means that you really shouldn't be sitting for more than 30 minutes at a time. 

    Stefan teaches people how to keep going and be more productive at work. Some examples he uses: Have a standing desk, pace while on the phone, take 20 seconds every 20 minutes to stretch your legs and try to just be mindful of when you should be standing.

    This episode will surely blow you out of your seat as it is jampacked with stats, insights and much, much more!
