    96. Breaking Down Pain: Omid Vojdani's Holistic Health Approach

    96. Breaking Down Pain: Omid Vojdani's Holistic Health Approach

    Michelle Walters: Hi, we're Cinthia Varkevisser and Michelle Walters, co-hosts of Mind Power Meets Mystic. Our weekly show is here to expand your mind to what's possible, uplift your spirits to move forward with confidence and joy, and to create a space for your collaboration with the invisible. Welcome to Mind Power Meets Mystic.
    Michelle Walters: It is just me this week, Michelle Walters. I am our show Mind Power. I am the hypnotherapist. Our mystic, Cinthia Varkevisser, has the day off. I am very happy to be sharing a special guest I met a few months ago whose name is Omid Vojdani. Omid is a certified holistic health coach with a background in functional medicine and fitness. After graduating from California State University, Chico with a degree in psychology, he discovered his love for fitness in the gym. He moved to Los Angeles to become a personal trainer and started working at 24 Hour Fitness, where he gained experience working with clients with specific medical conditions ranging from back pain and knee replacements to MS and Parkinson's. Today, Omid helps create custom health solutions based on his client's unique personalities and lifestyles so that they can create sustainable change in their health and happiness. He is passionate about helping individuals achieve optimal health, and his unique background, training, and experiences have shaped his approach to coaching. Welcome.
    Omid Vojdani: Thank you for having me, Michelle.
    Michelle Walters: We are very happy to have you today. One of the things I wanted to get out there right away is that when I met you, I was like, "Oh, this guy is different. He does not have a very standard Western approach to health." I know a lot of our listeners are very interested in alternative approaches and finding other ways because either Western medicine has disappointed them or doesn't seem to be addressing their needs, or maybe it's suboptimal, or they have a lot of health concerns, and the combination is tough. But I wanted to hear from you a little bit about what it is you do. Your bio has a nice description, but I know there's a lot more. So why don't you share that with our listeners?
    Omid Vojdani: Yeah, the elevator pitch, as I give it, is I get people out of pain. That's really the bread and butter of how people find me. They have something going on that is causing them some, mostly physical, but sometimes health or psychological pain. And what a lot of people end up doing before they come to me is they start trying to apply themselves to a model. And it actually has to, in my experience, be the other way around. You know, if I'm a car, I go to the mechanic. It's really easy, but the human body and psyche is not a car. It's not a machine that you can just apply one model to. So as the individual comes to me, I assess everything that's going on to figure out what the actual root cause of the pain is. And then once I find what that is, that might take a session or two, it might take four or five. But then once I have that information, I create the customized plan for them to address all of the things that are going on. And there's a stack ranking order to that, right? I want to go after the biggest thing that's going to move the needle the most, not the smallest first, to get them the best results I can.
    Michelle Walters: So why don't you walk me through maybe an example client?
    Omid Vojdani: Yeah, actually, I'll do the one that was most recent. So a massage therapist, best massage therapist I've ever worked with in my life. She was having a little bit of this interesting neuropathy going on in her right foot, and she just could not figure this out. So I have a lot of skill with assessing the physical body, so I'm like, "Okay, well, neuropathy could be coming from the foot itself, could be coming from any of the muscles...

Loved it

I had the opportunity of doing a podcast episode with Michelle. It was so much fun and we covered a lot in a short amount of time. We discussed stye, psychology and more. Michelle was an excellent host. I also loved listening to their other episodes as well!

Golden Phoenix Feng Shui ,

BaZi Astrology

I had a lot of fun doing this episode with Michelle and Cinthia. We were laughing through the episode. I talked about what BaZi Astrology is, and how it is used in Southeast Asia, and even spoke a little about Tao Geomancy. They have a way of bringing the guest’s knowledge of there profession, and to share it with the world.
