DrPaulDrew.jpg

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

Abbreviated Transcript of Interview with Dr. Paul Drew


Eric Michaels: So why the book?


Dr. Drew: To help reverse the trend of bad posture that seems to be fashionable amongst today’s young women.  I want to bring back the glory days of Hollywood, when actors were “Glamourous” on the red carpet.  I want to not only help people look thinner and feel healthier, but to also display better self confidence.  Since I’m a doctor of physical therapy that has worked with many celebrities in helping them to feel and look good, I wanted to share my advice for all to obtain that same great look and feel that celebs have on the red carpet.


Eric Michaels: What are the benefits of good posture?


Dr. Drew: It’s not only good for the health of your spine and body, but also helps to display greater self confidence that others around you will take notice and you will be respected.  Better posture gives you a thinner look, without having to go on any fad diet.


Eric Michaels: What are some causes of poor posture?
Dr. Drew: Stress is usually the number one reason, as we go thru our busy day stuck in an office chair, behind a computer or the wheel of our car, we forget about our posture, and we tend to slump forward.  Also, many people don’t realize that their posture is poor.  They have never been taught or told that they need to stand or sit up straight.  I remember visiting my father years ago, he is a World War 2 veteran, and he was all slumped over, and I told him to stand up straight.  He said he was standing straight, he didn’t realize that his posture was bad.  He actually did exercises from my book and in a month, he was back upright again.  So it doesn’t matter how old you are, you can still improve your posture. Unfortunately, another reason has been that “slouchy” has become a fashion trend displayed by many young girls who are looking at young starlets on the red carpet to not only see the fashions that are being worn, but how they are displaying themselves which is often very poor posture.  A great dress can make you look better, but poor posture can make a good dress look bad.


Dr. Paul Drew also answers and discusses:

  • So with the idea of celebrities setting an example on the red carpet, who do you think are good examples of “Red Carpet Posture” and who would you say could benefit from your book or expertise?
  • How can one get better posture, and obtain your book, and I see you also have clothing that helps with posture?
  • What kind of advice can you give our listeners today to help them get started on looking and feeling more “Glamourous”?

Where the core belief comes from

Lisa2010.jpg


Board Certified Hypnotist and Instructor Lisa Zaccheo. She is the founder of Mind Matters Hypnosis Center in Central Connecticut and specializes in helping people learn how to harness the incredible power of the subconscious mind – that other 90% of our mental capacity.


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

MindMattersLogos001.jpg


Lisa Zaccheo, BCH, BCI is a highly sought after practitioner for a wide array of mind, body and spirit applications of hypnosis. She has been professionally involved in the study of the mind and hypnotic theory since the mid eighties, and has been in private practice for almost a decade, having served thousands of clients from around the world. Lisa’s passion is learning and developing techniques to leverage the subconscious mind for self-improvement and healing on all levels. Her dedication, passion and firm belief that there are no limits to what the mind and body can achieve has earned her the reputation as the “go to” person when more conventional methods of therapy have not achieved the desired results.

Psychological and medical professionals refer the bulk of Lisa’s clients to her. Lisa believes that more minds looking at a challenge, means more perspectives, which often enables the  solution to be identified and implemented sooner than it would be otherwise. This team approach garners positive results for all concerned.

Being an educator and inspiring motivator is part of Lisa’s life purpose. She has become a popular speaker and trainer. Lisa has worked with several of local area hospitals including The Connecticut Children’s Medical Center and Hartford Hospital where she lectures to the medical staff and patients on a wide variety of topics.


250sq_edrugstore.jpg


Abbreviated Transcript of Interview with Lisa Zaccheo


Eric Michaels: What are you referring to when you say there’s a hidden national epidemic?


Lisa Zaccheo: When you look at so many of the things that people are struggling with in life, such as obesity, destructive habits, addictions, anxiety, depression, relationship challenges, self or professional sabotage and yes even many diseases such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Migraines, or Cancer they are, in my opinion, the surface symptoms of a much deeper problem.  That problem is the existence of the core belief “I’m not enough.” or “I’m not as good as.”   To me all those challenges or symptoms are like the branches and leaves of a tree, and what feeds those branches and leaves are the roots below the surface.  The root of most of our challenges as individuals, as a society, a nation and a world are seated in the fear of “not enough”.  “I’m not enough. If I’m not enough then I’m not capable. If I’m not capable I’ll never be enough. If I’m not enough then I’m not likeable. If I’m not likable, I may not be loveable. If I’m not lovable, I might be abandoned. If I’m abandoned I might be left alone. If I’m alone, I might not be safe. If I’m not safe, I might die, and so on and so forth. Not much of this dialog is conscious but make no mistake about it, it goes on below the surface all the time. If you break it down insecurity is the opposite of security. Security is safety – insecurity equals unsafe. Feeling unsafe causes stress and tension. It’s that inner dialog and those inner feelings of fear, which causes us to reach for coping mechanisms outside of ourselves.  So, we turn to food, we turn to cigarettes, drugs, gambling, destructive relationships. That constant underlying fear takes its toll on our immune systems, which leaves us vulnerable to disease. It’s all part and parcel of the same thing, the subconscious fear that we’re not good enough.


Eric Michaels:Where do you think that core belief comes from?


Lisa Zaccheo: I think it comes from a number of places.  I believe that as much as our genetics are passed forward so are thought forms, beliefs and feelings.  We are energetic beings. If we have a mother or father who is insecure, the emotional energy of that insecurity will be housed in all the cells of their body, including the sperm and egg that forms a fetus. When sperm and egg combine, not only genetic information gets transferred, but the emotional energy gets transferred as well.  So I think for many people it starts there, in the moment of conception.  The insecurity we’re feeling isn’t even ours – it’s an energetic foundation that came from our parents. And it continues from there. If you have a mother that is highly anxious about her pregnancy, anxious about her ability to be a good mother the baby is surrounded by that energy and spends 9 months soaking in her fear – not realizing that the fear it’s feeling is its mother’s insecurity, that it has nothing to do with the child itself.  Then we’re born and our parents, because it how they’ve been parented, put the bulk of their energy into all the things we do wrong instead of all the things we do right, we wind up with these internal scales that are imbalanced.  The “not good enough, not right” outweighs the “good enough,” so we’re left to conclude “I’m not good enough.”  Then we grow up a bit more, we go to school and we realize – “Oh my goodness – I’m different!! I’m not like everyone else.” And so we judge our differences to be wrong or bad instead of realizing that we’re intended to be different – that our differences are our gifts, our assets instead of faults.  We get teased, picked on or bullied and so it goes from there.  We believe we’re not good enough so we start to live down to those beliefs instead of up to our potential. We begin collecting evidence around “not good enough” and the belief gets bigger and stronger. And so it goes.  It’s obviously a bit more complex than that but you get the idea.


Eric Michaels: How can you as a hypnotist help people with this challenge that affects so many parts of their lives?


Lisa Zaccheo: The beauty of hypnosis is that it gives us access to the subconscious mind.  The subconscious mind is amazing at cutting through all the clutter and getting to the heart of the matter.  Time and time and time again, the subconscious mind leads the conscious mind to the fear of not good enough. Even those that say to themselves, “I don’t know what you’re talking about, I’m totally confident, I’ve got life by the horns.” and yet they’re work alcoholics or are in a lousy marriage.  Once light is shed on that fear or whatever happens to be contained in the client’s roots, the healing process begins.  The subconscious mind also houses our long-term memory so it knows exactly where the seed of our tree of challenges got planted. Whether the seed got planted in our history, in our soul history or our ancestral history, the subconscious mind has the power to travel wherever it needs to go to find the seed and heal that moment in time. It’s like a game of dominos. When you knock down the lead domino, the rest of them follow.  The subconscious mind is also our protective mind so it will never take a client anywhere that it doesn’t deem healthy or beneficial for the client.


Lisa Zaccheo also discusses and answers the following:

  • How is the process you use different than traditional therapy and different than how other hypnotist’s work?
  • What do you think is the most important thing for people to carry forward from this conversation?
  • Special Tip in Conclusion...

The first thing smokers should do when deciding to quit

Everest-Institute---Dearborn-Campus-Dearborn-MI-SchoolSmallLogo.gif


Sally Borrello, a specialist in smoking cessation, is an RN, MSN, and certified Tobacco Treatment Specialist joins the show.. She is also an instructor at Everest Institute in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

250sq_edrugstore.jpg


Sally Borrello discusses & answers the following:

  • What’s the best way to quit smoking?
  • What’s the first thing smokers should do when deciding to quit?
  • When smokers are trying to quit & feel to urge to smoke, what kind of activities can they do to stop the cravings?
  • What do you tell smokers who have tried to quit several times before without success?
  • Will the new graphic labels on cigarette packs help?


CONCLUSION: It’s very difficult to quit smoking. The withdrawal symptoms, both physiological and psychological, such as headaches and irritability, are common and can negatively impact both quitters and their families. However, the most important part of quitting is perseverance.  It’s critical to set a quit day as soon as possible and never quit quitting. Relapses can happen, just pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and get back to quitting.

Today, we know more than any other organization about what it takes to make and keep you healthy, and that’s precisely what we’re here to teach you.  We will show you how your physiology functions through understandable, easy-to-follow methods, helping you functionally create a healthier lifestyle…a healthy you.  No running or biking for miles and miles hoping that you are doing the right thing. No circuits written for you by a gym junkie. LifeWaves® focuses on the one thing that truly matters: making you the healthiest person you can be.


250sq_edrugstore.jpg


Abbreviated Transcript of Interview with Ryan Freilino


Eric Michaels: From the LifeWaves® perspective, what is health?


Ryan Freilino:  Health is having playful and reactive physiology which is capable of quickly responding to the challenges of the environment, and then being able to recover from that reaction. As you go through your day, your body has to meet specific challenges like moving from point A to point B, going up a flight of stairs, or mental stress.  Each of these unique situations creates a response by the body such as a change in heart rate, blood pressure, respiration rate, the secretion of certain hormones, etc.  A healthy body can react immediately and appropriately to meet these challenges, and then go through the recovery process where things like heart rate, blood pressure, etc. go back to normal values.  At LifeWaves, we think of meeting these challenges as waves: you have your stress reaction, and then your recovery reaction.  To be healthy, you have to be able to do both.


Eric Michaels: How do you or should we create health?


Ryan Freilino:  First understand what stress is, and how it should be considered when thinking about how your body works. You need to have be able to engage this stress reaction, and then disengage that set of processes and start a new set, the recovery process.  When we go through our daily lives, we’re wrought with chronic stress – mental and physical challenges.  So what ends up happening is we train our bodies to keep the stress response turned on, and on top of that, there is an atrophy on the part of our recovery physiology.  It’s use it or lose it.  By keeping the stress response constantly engaged, we’re slowly but surely chipping away at our health.  But, by understanding that the body’s natural healthy patterns are waves we can change our behavior to reinforce our body’s natural stress and recovery patterns. In the long run, understanding the effects of stress is important.  So important, in fact, that the U.S. Department of health and human services claims that up to 70% of all doctor’s visits are the result of chronic stress; not to mention the fact that chronic stress or chronic inflammation has been linked to almost every chronic disease. When we understand that these physiological waves of stress and recovery are a collective response on the part of our physiology, and not just the presence or absence of one or two molecules, it becomes clear that we have to use our behaviors to train these responses.  No one would think to train for a marathon by taking a pill – the physiological processes that have to be trained are just too complex, so it makes sense that we should be doing the same thing in terms of training ourselves to be healthy.


Eric Michaels: How does this knowledge of stress and recovery fit into the larger context of health?


Ryan Freilino: These reactions fit into a larger pattern of rhythms, like the circadian rhythm. Throughout your day, the body’s metabolism should be doing different things as we progress through the day and into night. It is intuitive to most people that their bodies are doing different things when they’re awake as opposed to when they’re asleep.  But what’s not intuitive until it is pointed out is that our behaviors are entraining this rhythm at all times, for better or worse.  So by understanding that our circadian rhythms have a particular shape that is consistent with healthy individuals where things like heart rate or respiration rate are lowest in the morning, in a trough after lunch, and come back to a peak in the afternoon, we can then begin to shape our behaviors to reinforce this pattern rather than work against it. What ends up happening when you do this is you can begin using daily behaviors to reinforce healthy sleeping patterns, because you’re shaping the larger circadian rhythm. When done properly, these behavioral changes during the day lead to better sleep at night, and this starts a positive feedback cycle of a more robustly healthy circadian rhythm.


Ryan Freilino also discusses & answers:

  • What is the difference between LifeWaves® Cycles ExerciseSM and traditional exercise?
  • On average - How much is the right amount of exercise?
