In this episode, we take a closer look at I.V. therapies, how they work, why they are so effective for helping difficult symptoms to finally go away, and why it is so VERY important to go to a trained physician to avoid dangerous complications during treatment.

28. The Law of Wellness w/ atty Barbara Zabawa
Many practitioners (myself included) spend decades learning and mastering their craft of human physical, metabolic, and emotional science. I know that running a healthcare business often times is far more complicated than the physical patient care, and as doctors, we generally do not have the training, awareness, or advocacy for keeping our private practice running smoothly - and not because we don't want to, but often times out of sheer lack of time to learn how.
Today's episode has a different expert who has dedicated her life to educating and legally protecting the doctors out there doing their work: attorney Barbara Zabawa.
I personally have seen Barbara in action, and she is a force to be reckoned with! I am grateful for her extensive knowledge and expertise, and had to give more practitioners out there access to her very particular niche of [un]common law.
Reach out to her at: www.wellnesslaw.com
Barbara is the founder and President of the Center for Health and Wellness Law, LLC, a law firm dedicated to improving legal access and compliance for the health and wellness industries. She is also lead author of the book Rule the Rules on Workplace Wellness Programs, published by the American Bar Association. She is a frequent writer and speaker on health and wellness law topics, having presented for national organizations such as WELCOA, National Wellness Conference, HPLive, Healthstat University and HERO.
Barbara J. Zabawa is a Clinical Assistant Professor for the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee College of Health Sciences, Department of Health Services Administration where she teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in health law and compliance, US health care delivery and health professions career development.
27. New Format - The Episodes Begin!

Now that I have officially plunged into the deep end of podcasting, I am feeling a better flow, a better understanding of the tech, and a heightened awareness of the direction I want my show to go.
So I decided to change things up a bit!
The concept and content are the same: science, celebrity and [un]common solutions - but how the episodes are released is going to be in episode format, rather than in seasons. I am not taking a break between episodes, really, making the season unnecessary.
SO, until I decide to make specialty topics for 11 episodes, we will be moving forward together in an episode format starting with this one: EP 27. I have published 26 episodes before this one, that were divided into Seasons and Outtakes. You won't really notice any differences when tuning in to listen, other than how to look up past episodes that are in season 1 or 2, but other than that - let's continue to keep learning together, and of course being just a little bit more: [un]common.
[un]common TRUE STORIES: Living Rockstar Legend Howard E. Scott of WAR and LOW RIDER BAND
It's conversations like this that remind me to step back and say thank you. I have had some amazing experiences as a doctor in the high profile market, and the friendship I am honored to have to this day with this Rock 'n Roll legend came from one of those.
He wrote some of the most iconic songs in American cultural history including Spill The Wine, Slipping Into Darkness, Why Can't We Be Friends, and of course, (who doesn't know) Low Rider. He plays lead guitar and still tours (when able due to COVID) with his band Low Rider Band, once known as WAR. We talk about everything from what it was like writing the songs we all know and sing in the shower, to social and racial injustice of the 60's and how it parallels what we are experiencing today in 2021, to getting vaccinated, and how we first met and worked together.
Howard is anything BUT uncommon, which is exactly why I had to have him come and tell some of his True Stories.
The ancient practice of midwifery in modern times w/ Blyss Young
It's Women's History Month, and what better way to honor women than to discuss one of the most sacred and miraculous acts only a woman can do: give birth.
Nature provided us women with everything we need to bring life into this world - our bodies are truly amazing! Somehow along the way, giving birth became a medical event, and the ancient practice of midwifery came under scrutiny and attacked for being unsafe and unable to handle the complications that may occur during the birthing process.
Well, that simply just isn't true.
Blyss Young, a board certified licensed midwife (LM) and certified professional midwife (CPM), opened the only free standing birth center in Los Angeles and transformed the way birth is managed and perceived in this country. She is an incredible woman and mother who has been helping to bring babies into this world for over 20 years. And she also taught me the correct way to pronounce her field of study, which I completely messed up in the beginning of this episode (uuugh!) it's mid-WIF-rey, just FYI.
I learned so much in our conversation today! From statistics about how high the death rate is for women and their babies here in the United States, to the incredibly emotional story of tragedy that Blyss has had to endure and live through with the sudden loss of her teenage daughter to a senseless random act of gun violence.
Midwives, part of our history and practice of wise women is alive and well - and definitely needs more credit and attention as a safe and effective option for pregnant women preparing to bring their babies into this world.

The [un]common surprise of living for imperfection with licensed mental health practitioner Kathryn Ely

She is a certified and licensed councilor who teaches the tools needed to stop being paralyzed by perfection, embrace the process of life, and thrive in the most fulfilling and imperfect way.

Loved the Episode with Marie Campanile & her fight against cancer! So much wonderful information that was shared; very inspiring! Thank you!!
Super interesting topics with great guests! Learning a ton from Dr. Grace. Highly recommend.
Upbeat energy with so much knowledge!
Before I started listening to Dr. Grace, I knew I’d find the content she shares very interesting, but I was totally surprised by her upbeat and enthusiastic style!
I knew I’d get plenty of great information, but I hadn’t quite expected to enjoy the process of learning this much. Haha
I’ve listed to her interviews on other podcasts and her talks on her own podcast. And I’m really looking forward to listening to many more episodes of [un]common medicine. :)
