    The Mind-Gut Connection: Take Charge of Your Mood, Your Choices and Your Overall Health. With Dr. Emeran Mayer

    The Mind-Gut Connection: Take Charge of Your Mood, Your Choices and Your Overall Health. With Dr. Emeran Mayer

    Today's guest is Dr. Emeran Mayer, a Distinguished Research Professor in the Departments of Medicine, Physiology, and Psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine. He is a world-renowned gastroenterologist and neuroscientist with 35 years of experience in the study of clinical and neurobiological aspects of how the digestive system and the nervous system interact in health and disease.
    We discuss his bestselling book, The Mind-Gut Connection: How the Hidden Conversation Within Our Bodies Impacts Our Mood, Our Choices, and Our Overall Health. The book combines neuroscience with the latest discoveries on the human microbiome with lots of insights on the biological link between the mind and the digestive system. He shares the science behind the mind-gut communication pipeline…and discusses how we can harness the power of this connection to take charge of our health and listen to the innate wisdom of our bodies.
    Our favorite quote: “The time has come for us to empower ourselves to be the engineers of our own internal ecosystem and our bodies and minds.”

    How To Use Hypnosis for Sleep, Pain, Stress, Anxiety, Phobias, Trauma and MORE. With Dr. David Spiegel.

    How To Use Hypnosis for Sleep, Pain, Stress, Anxiety, Phobias, Trauma and MORE. With Dr. David Spiegel.

    Today’s guest is Dr. David Spiegel. He is Professor and Associate Chair of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences, Director of the Center on Stress and Health, and Medical Director of the Center for Integrative Medicine all at Stanford University School of Medicine. 
    Dr. Spiegel has more than 40 years of clinical and research experience studying stress and health, pain control, sleep, hypnosis, and more. He’s published thirteen books on these and other topics. 
    In this interview, we talk about Hypnosis. Why are some people are more susceptible than others? What’s the difference between hypnosis and self hypnosis? How can we use hypnosis for sleep, stress, anxiety, depression, stress, phobias, pain or trauma?
    When I asked him for a simple definition of hypnosis he said "hypnosis is simply a state of highly focused attention. It's like looking through the telephoto lens of a camera, what you see, you see with great detail, but you're less aware of the context."
    I found his insights and the tools he offered extremely interesting…in fact I tried some of them for sleep and pain on his Reveri app. He’s an incredibly skilled and interesting guy.

    Is Energy Healing & Collective Consciousness Real? A Scientist Shares Her Answer. With Shamini Jain

    Could “energy healing” be real? Do phenomena like manifestation really work? If it does, could we possibly understand how?
    Dr. Shamini Jain, scientist, and clinician at UCSD, shares her amazing studies of the biofield, and the evidence she and other colleagues have that demonstrates that this might be more real than we thought.

    What Dogs Teach Us About Life, Love, Loyalty, Freedom, Grief and more. With Hersch Wilson

    What Dogs Teach Us About Life, Love, Loyalty, Freedom, Grief and more. With Hersch Wilson

    Todays guest is Hersch Wilson, an Interesting guy with many passions, but none more important than being with and learning from the dogs in his life. His new book, Dog Lessons: Learning The Important Stuff From Our Best Friends shares his insights on the powerful presence of dogs in our lives and the transformative lessons they can teach us about love, loyalty, grief, and more. 
    Along the way, he was also a volunteer firefighter and wrote an award winning book called "Firefighter Zen, A Field Guide for Thriving in Tough Times." 
    He considers Dog Lessons a meditation on the truths dogs can teach us. From universal values like loyalty and curiosity to practical lessons on napping, playing, and avoiding a serious fight. It’s all pretty darn good advice.
    One of his big messages is that dogs help us remember that life is short and we must celebrate it wherever we can. They often help us find refuge, quiet and peace in this very complicated world. 
    This is a bit different from our usual untangle interviews, but I couldn’t resist since I’m a dog person myself…and living with the love and challenges that come with my little pup.

    Oprah’s Life Coach: Finding Purpose, Integrity and Emotional Healing

    Oprah’s Life Coach: Finding Purpose, Integrity and Emotional Healing

    Today’s encore episode is with Martha Beck, a PhD, Harvard-trained sociologist, world-renowned coach and New York Times bestselling author. She has published nine non-fiction books, one novel, and more than 200 magazine articles.
    She’s also known as Oprah’s Life Coach . Her most recent book, The Way of Integrity, Finding Your Path to Your Your True Self, is an Oprah book club selection and a NY Times best seller. 
    In The Way of Integrity, Beck presents a process that anyone can use to find a sense of purpose, emotional healing, and a way to be free of mental suffering. Much of what plagues us— negative habits and patterns, too much people pleasing, staying in stale relationships or careers— happen because we are out of touch with our true nature. This signals a split from integrity — which very often is unconscious and fueled by cultural norms and traditions that lead us in directions that aren’t, in fact, right for us. Getting back in sync with what is true for us brings us into alignment and this is where we become our best selves. Meditation has been a huge part of her own process in bringing her life into integrity.

    Good Anxiety: Harnessing the Power of The Most Misunderstood Emotion. With Dr. Wendy Suzuki

    Good Anxiety: Harnessing the Power of The Most Misunderstood Emotion. With Dr. Wendy Suzuki

    Dr. Wendy Suzuki is a Professor of Neural Science and Psychology in the Center for Neural Science at New York University. She was also recently appointed as Dean of NYU’s College of Arts & Science. 
    In her book, Good Anxiety, Harnessing the Power of the Most Misunderstood Emotion, she used new and established neuroscience to share how we can harness our fears to feel better, think better, and do better. We discuss why anxiety is so misunderstood and how we can turn it into a superpower. Much of it is pretty darn practical. 
    Her other book is called Health Brain, Happy Life, here she discusses how we have the power to activate our brains. 
    Her favorite line: Exercise is the most transformative thing we can do for our brain today. 
    Her major research interest continues to be brain plasticity. She is best known for her extensive work studying areas in the brain critical for our ability to form and retain new long-term memories. More recently her work has focused on understanding how aerobic exercise can be used to improve learning, memory and higher cognitive abilities in humans.

Great variety of guests

I enjoy this podcast because of the great variety of guests and topics. Interviewer asks good questions and mostly stays out of the way. I have recommended a few of the episodes to Friends.

Love

I love this podcast. It makes me feel good while I’m listening to the episodes and I ponder/meditate on what I heard throughout my days. I’ve listened to every episode, some multiple times. Also, the hosts Patricia and Ariel have soothing voices. Thanks to all the people who make this podcast possible.
