    Ep 29 - The Forever Dog

    The New York Times bestseller "The Forever Dog" has fans all over the world. Published in 14 countries, the book serves as an eminently readable and accessible guide for dog owners who want to make important choices to help their dogs thrive.

    In this episode, veterinarian and wellness advocate Dr. Karen Shaw Becker — who co-authored the book with Rodney Habib, the founder of Planet Paws — notes that dogs are dying younger of more degenerative diseases than ever before.  Yet she assures pet parents that they have the power to take easy steps that can prevent this from happening to their beloved canines.  "There are scientifically proven strategies that can help reduce the likelihood of dogs having to go through an early degenerative process," she says. You'll find a wealth of strategies in this book, along with secrets of the world's oldest dogs; the importance that a twice-daily "sniffari" has for your pooch; and so much more.

    You can find "The Forever Dog" on Amazon and wherever books are sold.

    Ep 27 - Tapping Our Way to Emotional Freedom

    Ep 27 - Tapping Our Way to Emotional Freedom

    Jondi Whitis is a Master Trainer in EFT, which stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques and is commonly referred to as “Tapping.”

    Jondi’s calling is helping others feel better fast and, in this episode, she talks about how these techniques work and what they can be used for.

    In simple terms, EFT is an easily learned way to release emotional overwhelm, limiting beliefs and even physical pain. Plus, it's a drug-free method of working with the mind-body connection  and can be used for self-help, peer-to-peer care and, in practiced hands, therapeutic care.

    It also can help you develop new ways to overcome old problems, and experience life in happier, more productive ways.

    Jondi is the co-author, with Deborah D. Miller, PhD, of the Compassion in Action handbook “Emotional First-Aid for Children: How to Quickly Help in Times of Trouble.” She also has published two “handy-dandy” guides about EFT.  Her books are accessible, well written and nicely designed.

    Please visit Jondi's website for more about her books and EFT.  You may reach her directly by emailing jondi@eft4results.com.
