    Sacred Energy with Dina Tibbs

    Sacred Energy with Dina Tibbs

    I've long been interested in energy work and learning to use it to heal and bring peace into the world. In this episode we're talking about awakening the feminine, balancing it with the masculine, the soul, and how our energy allows us to "walk in the world". 

    We talk about the Mother archetype, her role in different phases of life, and various leadership qualities of women.  We talk about why it's imperative to have fun in life. And finally, delve into the "dark night of the soul" as a means to something...

    Feeding Your Immune System with Dr. Karthik Varanasi

    Feeding Your Immune System with Dr. Karthik Varanasi

    Dr. Karthik Varanasi is a post-doctoral researcher at the Salk Institute in San Diego, California and he joins me on this episode to discuss normal cell metabolism (how normal cells use nutrients to make energy), cancer metabolism and the million-dollar question of how to make normal cells behave one way while making cancer cells do something else, especially when they are both competing for the same nutrients. 

    It's a fascinating conversation about diet and the role of fatty acids (fats) in cancer growth or suppression.

    Up for the Fight with Bill Potts

    Up for the Fight with Bill Potts

    If you've had cancer once, you know once is more than enough. My guest on this episode is a five-time survivor... and he's written to tell about his multiple walks on this path. There's so much in this episode - fitness, nutrition, purpose, passion, money, (almost) giving up and gearing up. There was laughter and a few tears too. And lots of life lessons.

    In his varied life experiences, we talk about challenging your medical team to be more creative with treatment options, doing an Ironman event, resisting toxic positivity while not alienating your friends, and having a BFF that always knows where you are (through sonar location), and how that BFF inspired thousands of others to keep up the fight.

Even if you haven’t experience cancer first hand this is gold!

Regina and her guests speak candidly from the heart. Even if you are not personally a cancer survivor, you probably know someone who is and this perspective will help you to be an empathetic friend. The episodes are entertaining and uplifting because Regina gives a fresh and hopeful perspective to a difficult situation.

Great podcast for living wholly and holistically

Life Well-Lived is such a great podcast for real stories from people touched by cancer. And, it goes so much deeper than being a survivor's story. Regina and her guests offer real actionable advice for living your best life and many of the stories are a reminder of how precious life is and how important it is to choose a life that fills & nourishes you mind, body, & soul.

Relevant and beautifully real

This podcast is so obviously committed to sharing a life well lived in ways that support listeners on an immediate practical level in good times and bad. Regina’s healing and engaged tone deep dives into important stuff, but makes it so accessible for anyone to benefit. Thank you, Regina.
