The biggest problem when it comes to people’s overall health and wellness

Darshan-Shanti.jpg


Darshan Shanti who is an expert in human motivation, rapid transformation and helping people eliminate unwanted, unhealthy, self-destructive thoughts, beliefs and behaviors in hours, not years joined the show. He is an author of three books including his best-seller, The 24 Hour Champion – Discovering AND Living Your Priceless Life.


Note: Refer to audio player below to listen to this episode.


Darshan is a workshop facilitator, transformational speaker and he is the founder and President of Freedom Incorporated, Inc. Across North America, he has worked with over 30,000 people from many diverse industries and backgrounds to help them find their hidden potential, purpose, passions, dreams and desires so they may experience true freedom and health in their lives and big success in their business.

He has a unique ability to very quickly empower participants to change their own mind about who they are, what they want and what's possible, both now and in the future. When they change their own minds, their change is permanent. That leaves them free to make new decisions, take new actions and create new, powerful and fulfilling lives.

His personal mission is to reach out and help at least 25 million people through his books, seminars, audio/video programs to discover and replace their core, limiting beliefs, blocks and barriers so they have the freedom to live the powerful, fulfilling and magnificent lives they truly deserve.

What makes his work so sought after by thousands of entrepreneurs, independent sales professionals, corporations and small/large businesses is his one-of-a-kind, training/teaching system called:

Core Problem Removal (CPR).

CPR is an interactive, transformational system that causes permanent shifts in awareness, enabling people to discover the unconscious barriers that hold them back from their greatest achievements.

Unlike most other speakers or trainers, Darshan’s work focuses only on the core issues that stop people. By dealing with issues at their core, they don’t come back anymore, just like weeds in a garden. If you pick them by their roots, they’re gone for good. If you don’t they will come back for sure. He is often hired as a ‘last resort’ when nothing else has worked for a company to come in and turn them around.

Edited Transcript of Interview with Jan Gambino


Eric Michaels: How did you learn everything you know about reflux and become "The 
Reflux Mom"?
Jan Gambino: When I became a parent, I didn’t expect to learn so much about reflux. My youngest daughter had difficulties from the start and she just didn’t eat, sleep and grow like my other two girls. I struggled to care for her and understand her health issues. After many doctors’ appointments and tests, it was determined that she had Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease and asthma. While she had excellent doctors and cutting edge treatments, I still had lingering questions and I needed support. Care giving is a very lonely job and I felt isolated and frustrated. When I connected with other parents, I realized that they offered the support and encouragement that I needed to cope. Eventually I joined a parent support group and later worked as the associate director of the organization. Over the years, I have talked to hundreds of parents from around the world about caring for an infant or child with reflux. It was the on the job training from caring for my daughter and sharing the journey with so many other parents that I learned how to be a Reflux Mom.


Eric Michaels: Explain the difference between GER (Gastroesophageal Reflux) and 
GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease).
Jan Gambino: The terminology is confusing. GER is normal, Common-from infancy to adulthood, we all have a bit of reflux once in a while. Most babies are really good at this-most babies spit up on occasion and as often as once per feeding. Ask just about any new mom, GER is not a disease and does not require medical treatment. GERD is more serious, leading to complications: pain, crying, poor weight gain, poor sleep, poor feeding, arching and crying during and after a meal, respiratory problems. GERD may require home care and medical treatment including medication, diet and positioning. Sometimes it is hard to tell if the baby has GER or GERD, even for the doctor. The symptoms may starts off looking like GER and as time goes on, the symptoms become more worrisome, leading to a diagnosis of GERD.


Eric Michaels: What should I do if I think my baby has GER or GERD?
Jan Gambino: Talk to the doctor about your concerns and observations. Schedule a separate appointment just to talk about your concerns about feeding and digestion. During well baby check ups, you and the doctor have so many issues to cover such as shots and car seat safety. Your concerns about digestion may get lost in the discussion. Keep a symptoms journal-when you are caring for a high need baby, it can be difficult to remember everything. Did she really wake up at 3, 4 and 5am or was it a bad dream?


Eric Michaels: What are the best treatments for a baby with GERD?
Jan Gambino: Every baby is different so there is no “one size fits all” treatment for reflux.  Often a combination of treatments will reduce symptoms and allow the baby to grow and thrive. Treatments may include:

  • Diet: If the mother is nursing, changing her diet may help. A special formula may be recommended by the doctor for formula fed babies.
  • Positioning: Hold her upright after a meal for 30 minutes.
  • Careful eating: Offering small, frequent meals and burping often will help with digestion.
  • Medication: The doctor may prescribe acid reducing medication for reflux.

Caregivers and doctors may need to adjust the treatments as the symptoms change and the baby grows. This often requires frequent visits to the doctor for follow up.


Eric Michaels: Caring for a baby that fusses, cries and struggles to eat and sleep 
can be stressful. What is your recommendation to other parents?
Jan Gambino: Remember that most babies outgrow reflux during the first year of life. While the treatments may not eliminate all of the symptoms, the treatments will help to reduce pain and discomfort.

Edited Transcript of Interview with Dr. Jamie Koufman


Eric Michaels: Why did you write Dropping Acid: The Reflux Diet Cookbook & Cure?


Dr. Koufman: It was written for my patients and was realized because of a combination of friendship and common purpose.  I joined forces with Dr. Jordan Stern, founder and director of Blue Sleep, a comprehensive sleep apnea and snoring center, because we were being urged to write this book by our reflux and sleep apnea patients. French Master Chef Marc Bauer was interested in making his delicious cuisine assessable to those with reflux. With the book we knew we could reach and help the millions of people with reflux, many who are unaware they even have it...


Eric Michaels: What was the most surprising revelation for you in your researching the acid levels of the recipes for the book?
Dr. Koufman: Title 21, a law passed in the 70s that mandated that the Food and Drug Administration regulate food manufacturing to prevent bacterial growth in packaged food...


Eric Michaels: What is Title 21?
Dr. Koufman: While reflux may be related to obesity, an unhealthy diet, or genetics, the dramatically increased prevalence of reflux, particularly among the young, is due to too much acid in the American diet. Acidification (adding acid) has long been used as a means to preserve food, but it wasn’t until the 1970s, when Congress passed Title 21, that almost overnight, nearly everyone in America was eating a highly acidified diet.  Now, three decades later, we are beginning to see the public health consequences of this highly acidified diet: more than 100 million Americans, including young Americans, have acid reflux.


Eric Michaels: What are the best ways to outsmart reflux?
Dr. Koufman: Here are five ways to outsmart acid reflux:

  • Get Tested!: Incredibly, over 100 million Americans have acid reflux but even more surprisingly, nearly half of them don’t even know it.  The first thing to know is whether or not you’re affected.
  • Know the Difference Between LPR and GERD:  Everyone is familiar with the commonly known GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) that is associated with heartburn and indigestion, especially after eating greasy foods; but hardly anyone is aware of laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR). Also known as “silent reflux,” LPR counts hoarseness, chronic cough, choking episodes, trouble swallowing, lump in the throat, and post-nasal drip as its most common symptoms. LPR can occur during the day or night, and people with LPR do not usually have heartburn.
  • Know the Good Foods: Whole-grain bread, ginger, aloe vera, oatmeal, salad, bananas, melons, chicken, fish, turkey, fennel, celery, parsley, cauliflower, broccoli, asparagus, green beans, couscous and brown rice are all examples of great foods for people with GERD or LPR.
  • Know the Bad Foods: Chocolate, soda, alcohol, fatty meats, fried foods, high-fat dairy products, caffeine, hot sauce/hot peppers, citrus fruits and juices are among the most problematic. Alcohol, chocolate and carbonated beverages can be especially hazardous, because they are consumed so regularly, and by so many.
  • Timing is Everything – When you eat can be just as important as what you eat.  People with reflux should have a general rule of thumb: anytime after 8pm the kitchen is closed!  No meals, no snacks, no beverages. For the refluxer, late night eating should be avoided!


Eric Michaels: What should you do if you suspect you have acid reflux?
Dr. Koufman: Tell your doctor what your symptoms are and if you suspect that you have “silent” (LPR) reflux, you may want to consult an ear, nose, and throat doctor as they are more familiar with the problems of voice and swallowing than any other specialty. If you have had any reflux symptoms for more than a few years, you should have an examination of your throat and esophagus (an awake endoscopy or transnasal esophagoscopy) to rule out cancer or precancer.
