    How to choose foods that support a healthy brain The benefits of neural protective fats Why beans are often overlooked as a brain food The complex dance between sleep, stress, exercises and diet Links

    Mindfulness for Pain Relief with Christiane Wolf, MD

    Mindfulness for Pain Relief with Christiane Wolf, MD

    Chronic pain can be debilitating, so we often look for ways to mask or medicate the symptoms. Unfortunately, the medical approach to pain management can sometimes lead to even worse problems. There is now a growing body of research showing the efficacy of mindfulness practices where you literally observe and accept your pain, rather than cover it up. It isn’t a panacea, but the clinical results are significant enough that mindfulness is now increasingly being integrated into hospital approaches. This week's guest is a medical doctor turned mindfulness teacher and trainer. 
    Listen and learn:
    How mindfulness can help you separate yourself from your pain Why we tend to mask and medicate rather than confront pain challenges The importance of natural, non-pharmaceutical interventions How mindfulness can be practiced in a secular way or easily integrated into your existing faith Links
    Dr. Wolf’s Site
    ABOUT OUR GUEST
    Dr. Wolf started her career as a gynecologist in Berlin. She began studying and practicing Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). She later trained as a Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) teacher and a MBSR teacher trainer. She is the author of two books: A Clinician’s Guide to Teaching Mindfulness and Outsmart Your Pain.

    Back Pain - Know Your Options with Dr. Ardavan Aslie

    Back Pain - Know Your Options with Dr. Ardavan Aslie

    Many people take a hardline stance when it comes to health: they either trust mainstream, allopathic medicine and mainstream medical doctors, or they are committed to natural and alternative healing protocols. From my perspective, both extremes are shortsighted. Why not focus on what is the best option for you based on your goals, challenges, and your phase of life? A 24 year old athlete with a torn ACL has a very different set of considerations compared to his 64 year old father. 
    On this week’s podcast, you’ll meet a spinal surgeon who does not operate on over 90 percent of his clients, and instead focuses on the best solutions for the individual. 
    Listen and learn:
    The dangers of surgical hardware manufactures funding research Why spinal surgery has such as bad reputation When to choose chiropractic care and physical therapy Why most back pain will resolve in 6-8 weeks, even severe pain Links
    Dr. Aslie’s Clinic
    ABOUT OUR GUEST
    Dr. Aslie is a Board Certified, Harvard University Fellow Spine Surgeon. He’s the founder of Sactospine.com in Sacramento California.

Great information

This podcast brings very valuable information. Lucas’ challenge programs are also amazing. My hip/lower back pain has almost disappeared with just one week of consistently following the Science of Stretching exercises. Just wish he didn’t speak so fast in his podcast! :)
