The Healing Power of Music
Music is something most people enjoy but research shows it also has therapeutic and healing properties.
Music can help decrease chronic pain and lower depression. The right song can stimulate serotonin and dopamine levels, the body’s neurotransmitters that regulate emotional well-being. It can help lower heart rate, blood pressure, and reduce the stress hormone called cortisol.
Joining Dr. Friedman is Bill Protzmann, an accomplished musician who has spent decades studying the healing power of music.
He is a successful IT entrepreneur who holds magna cum laude degrees in piano performance and creative writing. He’s an Associate Member of the American Music Therapy Association and a member of the Healing Music Organization.
Dr. Friedman chats with Bill on how to use music functionally in everyday situations including improving performance at work, strengthening communication and relationship skills, and combatting depression.
Hidden Chemicals Sabotaging Your Weight Loss Goals
Are you having a hard time losing weight no matter what diet you try?
Research shows chemicals in food, the cookware used to prepare it, and even the containers we store our food in may be the cause of the growing obesity epidemic. Exposure to these chemicals has been shown to interfere with the way the body metabolizes fat, which can lead to weight gain, even if you eat a healthful diet and exercise regularly.
In this episode of To Your Good Health Radio, Dr. Friedman exposes hidden chemicals that may be sabotaging your weight loss goals and he shares what you can do about it.
We hear about a common chemical used in plastics for food and drink storage that mimics estrogen and has been proven to increase fat cell growth, the biggest issue facing our nation is the childhood obesity epidemic, and how to read food labels for “hidden ingredients” that are linked to weight gain.
Let It Be Easy: Simple Ways to Stop Stressing & Start Living
Life comes with hardships. For some people being single is difficult, while for others staying married is stressful. Having kids is tough, yet for some people, so is not having children to share their life with. Being overworked can cause stress, but so does being unemployed.
Joining us today is Susie Moore: a life coach, and bestselling author of Let It Be Easy. She believes while we can't always control what happens to us, we can choose how we react. Our thoughts, create our emotions, which create our actions, and that in turn creates the life we live.
Susie Moore is a former Silicon Valley sales director turned life coach and advice columnist. Her work has been featured on The Today Show, Oprah Business Insider, CNN, and more. Listen to this joyful interview as Susie tells us how to slow down, and enjoy the everyday moments we often fly by rushing to finish our to-do lists.

Eat to Beat Disease: Allowing Your Body to Heal Itself
We've all heard the saying, "you are what you eat." What if you could eat to actually beat disease?
Dr. William Li has compiled scientific evidence behind over 200 health-boosting foods, that can stave cancer, reduce your risk of dementia, and beat dozens of avoidable diseases.
His book, Eat to Beat Disease: The New Science of How Your Body Can Heal Itself, isn't about what foods to avoid, but rather is a life-changing guide to the hundreds of healing foods to add to your meals that support the body's defense systems.
Listen as Dr. Li joins Dr. Friedman to explain the science of healing and prevention, as well as the strategies for using food to actively transform health.
Tips to Beat Stress
Stress puts our health at risk, damaging our body’s systems and contributing to irritability, anxiety, depression, headaches, insomnia, and a myriad of other diseases and ailments.
But, people can disarm the harmful effects of stress naturally and holistically. Dr. Bradley Nelson offers these six tips for beating the stress of daily life.
Control what is in you. Eat healthy, live whole foods. The shorter the time from tree to tasting, from ground to gourmet, the more positive energy you will receive.
Control what is around you. Stay away from chronically toxic people and situations. Stay off of negative social media.
Eliminate clutter, physical and spiritual. Clean lines and open spaces in your living area can provide calmness and serenity. Purge yourself of emotional clutter like trapped emotions.
Literally “ground” yourself. This concept is also known as “earthing.” You know that great feeling you have after a day at the beach? That is about more than a day of relaxation. Standing or walking in bare feet in grass, sand, or even on a concrete surface that is immediately above the soil can rid your body of ever-so-damaging negative energy.
Embrace joy. As they say, “laughter is the best medicine.” Share random hugs and smiles. Think about all you have to be grateful for and share that gratitude. Keep negative energy at bay with positive thoughts and acts.
Slow down and love the little things. Humans have adopted the rat race as a way of life, and it need not be that way. There is nothing and no one more important than YOU. Make sure you have sufficient alone time and use it to enjoy what makes you content. A walk in the woods, smelling fresh-cut grass, watching children play, a day of reading... The possibilities are endless.
Listen as Dr. Nelson joins Dr. Friedman to explain why the best remedies for stress are all about kindness and simplicity. He also shares information from his newly expanded and updated book, The Emotion Code.
