    381. Quantum Kids: Why combined therapies do better justice to our kids’ health, with Cole Clayton & Jalal Khan

    381. Quantum Kids: Why combined therapies do better justice to our kids’ health, with Cole Clayton & Jalal Khan

    We have more specialists than ever before, yet we are sicker than ever before. That’s why I am thrilled to bring you this week’s show, because it’s a story of two practitioners. This is a treat if you are a parent and: 
    You’re struggling to pinpoint what your child’s breathing, behavioural, focus, congestion, crooked teeth or headache issues are stemming from when you’ve tried lots of things.You think there might be a link between an ‘event’ and your child’s current issues (a fall, a trauma, a bone break…)You want the money you spend on your child’s teeth (it’s a LOT these days!) to actually amount to solutions and lasting results. You crave a new paradigm where we move away from the world where we’re sicker than ever, we have more specialists than ever, and you hate the merry-go-round you’ve been on with your kid, spending lots with few resultsYou love big-picture thinking when it comes to healthYou want to have more empowered conversations about your child’s health with your primary care doctor or dentist and be better versed in issues that could be at play. Share it far and wide with parents you know, and I’ll also say, super useful for adults who’ve had long-term musculoskeletal or dental/jaw structure issues to look at the bigger picture for yourself, too. - Enjoy the show, Alexx x
    Cole Clayton and Jalal Khan started The Quantum Kid after a mutual friend insisted they meet or she would force them! Within 6 months their business is achieving goals they set for 2-3 years. After combined 30 years of focused effort The Quantum Kid was an overnight success. Cole and Jalal set about to create a formula unique in healthcare, an approach to helping kids thrive that involves both practitioners working together in the same room to ensure the structures of the face, jaws and skull are ideally aligned.

    380. Quantum Biology: The Magic, The Medicine, with Dr Catherine Clinton

    Quantum Biology is the study of teeny tiny, complicated subatomic particles and energy that blow your mind. Being a beneficiary of it can be as simple as standing watching the sunrise or sunset or walking barefoot in the ground. 
    So, if you’ve been daunted in the past, today that ends as we deep dive into this topic with Dr Catherine Clinton, naturopathic physician and Quantum Biology educator helping you understand what the most accessible, truest form of medicine is, and how to make it a part of your life that you connect deeply to and start to seek out. We discuss

    The science - what we know and what we’re coming to understand about our biologyCoherence - how everything is connected in nature and what ‘tuning in’ feels likeHow your quantum biology check-list becomes a want to; a necessity and not another ‘set of things you have to do for your health’What medicine can you start administering from today, without spending an extra cent on your health?

    379. The Allergy epidemic in our kids: Can we fix it? Dr Elisa Song say yes.

    379. The Allergy epidemic in our kids: Can we fix it? Dr Elisa Song say yes.

    Allergies - Nearly 1 in 5 kids has an environmental allergy today, and nearly 1 in 10 has a food allergy. While these differ from person to person in severity, they are a challenge on the mental load, in the home and even more so out and about. My good friend and one of my favourite doctors in the world - she’s SO DANG SMART - Dr Elisa Song @healthykids_happykids and I deep dive into the reason so many families are dealing with allergies and in this comprehensive show, we explore: 

    The biggest factors playing into how we got here with allergies and poor gut health.How the gut microbiome has changed in 100 years and what species we know are critical to healthy histamine and mast cell ‘flexibility’ as we grow. How to be better informed when it comes to antibiotics and how to talk to your doctorTesting and screening optionsTherapeutics - conventional and holisticThe SOS game vs the long game - building resilient health and regulated responses to what we eat and what we’re exposed to in our environments. 
    It is PACKED. I usually say go for a walk in nature, but if your reality is dealing with allergies, it’s PAPER-AND-PEN day today! 
    I hope it’s useful for you and people you love - share it far and wide + if you want to hear the first show we did together look up show #85 on the childhood epidemics of our times. It’s also a doozy full of practical wisdom. 
    And the link to pre-order Elisa’s truly excellent new book is in the bio - her work is seminal in the way she’s put everything together in here. Bravo Doc!

    378. Stop trying to ‘control’ your emotions, and here’s why... with Cedric Bertelli

    378. Stop trying to ‘control’ your emotions, and here’s why... with Cedric Bertelli

    This show is all about emotions. As Cedric Bertelli, founder of the Emotional Health Institute, explains, our culture is obsessed with trying to control our emotions. It turns out however, it is this desire to control our emotions that inadvertently prevents many of us from developing emotional resilience. So, in this show, we unpack: 

    How our responses to situations are often formed from events a long time in our pastWhy emotions don’t make sense and trying to make them make sense is futileWhat happens in our conscious and subconscious at a point of trauma and how can it form long-term imprints? How phobias can be overcome - and it’s not about ‘overcoming’ them. How we can break life-long emotional patterns that things like talk therapy haven’t helped us resolve?
    It is a fascinating exploration of memories, trauma and emotions, and how we can break unhelpful loops we might be stuck in, and I hope you or someone you know finds it to be as interesting and helpful as I did.

    376. Can “Frugal” mean “Abundance”? Jen and Jill from Frugal Friends say YES

    376. Can “Frugal” mean “Abundance”? Jen and Jill from Frugal Friends say YES

    What is Frugality felt good? What if it was about abundance and positive mental health and a great contribution to wasting less and doing more of what you love? 
    Well… that is what Jen and Jill from Frugal Friends Podcast have made it about and I love it so much I’ve recorded a show with them. We discuss: 

    Why the negative connotation of frugality and how to flip the script in your life? How does one start to think about living frugally in a way that doesn’t conjure 1 jar with a year’s plastic, making everything from scratch wearing a linen dress in the woods and homeschooling your kids if the stereotype doesn’t resonate? What got you both feeling frugal? Did you grow up that way? A crisis? Awakening?Frugal in the kitchen, walk us through your fave ideas that you love to get people onto when they’re exploring/trying to changeFrugality with appliances and fixing things Frugal living with kids who want ‘all the things like their friends have!’ - how can we make it a potentially positive experience in raising kids? Frugal success - little by little? Personal priorities? Best ways to make change stick?And so much more. I hope you love it as much as we enjoyed having this conversation.
