I am not aware of a soul on this planet that at sometime or another has not wished that they could find a good doctor or naturopath to help them with an ailment or pain.  Many of us have seen the videos or experienced in person “healers” such as John of God or others, and I aware it is easy to walk away with a skeptical perspective.

I was introduced to Master Sha by Bill Gladstone, his book agent here in Southern California.  Don’t get me wrong I have not met Master Sha, but had the opportunity to speak with Bill Gladstone about his personal experience with Master Sha. As you will hear in my interview with Master Sha he is for real.  Everyone that I have spoken with that has encountered  Master Sha or attended one of his healing events is just in awe of his healing powers.

In my interview with Master Sha we have the opportunity to speak about his personal history, and the blending of ancient Chinese practices of Qi Gong, Tai Chi, acupuncture into something he refers to at “energy medicine”.  We also discuss “karma cleansing” which is something that Master Sha refers to and is associated with disease or ailments that we bring in from past lives.  Master Sha has helps his clients remove these energy blockages and become free from the pain and disease, that may have emanated from past lives.

I encourage my listeners to visit Master Sha’s website and watch some of the videos, then you can judge for yourself.

There is also a workshop coming up at the Agape International Spiritual Center on December 13th.  Just click on this link to learn more about the day long event.  Enjoy my interview with Master Sha, and I hope you will be able to attend this healing event.

 

Lets face it there is a health and nutrition revolution going on in our country, or is there?  If you look at the statistics in the media it does not seem like we are making great progress.  So what is the secret?  How can we improve our health, and vitality?

In my recent interview with Howard Koseff MD and his wife Lauri Koseff we discuss the techniques and plan outlined in their new book entitled ” Power UP, Transform Your Life and Health in 14 Days.”  It is really quite simple, no major detox plans just plain old whole foods loaded with nutrient rich green vegetables, and nuts. Their plan is does not deprive you of food, it just replaces the foods high  in carbs and sugars with healthy pure food.

Individuals who have adopted the 14 day plan have shed weight, increased their vitality and improved their mental acuity.  The book is filled with delicious, nutrient-dense PURE food which is the medicine of life.  You are provided with shopping lists, and amazing recipes to follow.   I spoke with Lauri about some of those recipes, all of which sound delicious and will leave you feeling satisfied and reduce cravings.

As we approach the year-end, most of us are looking to change our life and I bet lots of us would like to lead a healthier lifestyle.  If you want to start of the New Year with a focus on your well-being and health,  I highly recommend reading and following the recipes in ” Power UP, Transform Your Life and Health in 14 Days.

Weight Loss, almost everyone has attempted one method or another.  Some are successful and other completely fail.  Individuals in the United States spend billions of dollars each year trying to release weight.

I had the pleasure of speaking with an author by the name of Stephanie Matos, who recently released a new e-book entitled “The Mindful Weight Loss Method“.  I believe that Stephanie is on to something, and in our interview together we discuss how not only she released over 60 lbs, but how she is helping others with her Mindful Weight Loss Method.

Heather ReedEveryone today is focused on wellness, and it is a topic that deserves a lot of focus and attention.  I had the pleasure of interviewing both Dr. Matt Mumber and Heather Reed about their new book entitled “Sustainable Wellness-An Integrative Approach to Transform Your Mind, Body and Spirit.”.   I must state that Matt and Heathers approaching to achieving sustainable wellness uses an integrative medicine approach which if followed properly will certainly help one achieve sustainable wellness with lasting results.

I found their  analogy of using the three legged stool a great way to explain how they both approach the topic of wellness.  If you can imagine a three legged stool with the seat being spirituality , and the three legs physical activity, nutrition, and stress management all feeding into our spirituality.   The stool rests on awareness, which is the foundation of where all wellness begins.   This provides a great visual of the integrative approach that both Matt and Heather take when working with their clients to achieve truly lasting wellness.

Achieving sustainable wellness begins with reflection and exploration.  In the book you will find many opportunities where  Matt and Heather  provide the reader with questions for reflection and thought.  They have also have created and an eight (8) steps process to follow in exploring your personal wellness RX.  Those steps include mindfulness, know thyself, life review and planning, nutrition, physical activity, stress management, spirituality, bringing it all together.  If you follow these steps and practice the wisdom that the authors have outlined in “Sustainable Wellness” you will most likely  achieve a new level of health and vitality for yourself.

Risa KaparoOur body speak to us, the question is are you listening?  In my recent interview with author Risa Kaparo we speak about her new book entitled “Awakening Somatic Intelligence“.  Risa states “This book offers a practice that brings immediacy to presencing the unbound source of all existence.

In Somatic Learning I use the term presencing as a verb to imply the embodying of spaciousness with awakened Somatic Intelligence. “Extended presence” refers to the process of living into the unknown, relaxed and curious, without efforting to grasp anything–aware of what happens in the bodymind as you ease the struggle to “wrap your mind around something”.  When we can be present or mindful as we live into the unknown, the infinite reveals itself to us so that we can come to know it intimately.

If you are experiencing any pain or discomfort in your body then “Somatic Intelligence” is a great opportunity to explore what is causing this pain and to transform it.  As Risa states the word “somatic”comes from the Greek root some, for body.  The conventional use of the word “body” in English implies an “object” observed from the outside. That is way I use the term “soma” to refer to how we sense the unfolding of life from within. And I use the term “somatic” to imply a first-person, here-now, all-at once, embodied intelligence-how we sense, feel and know ourselves on a precess level–from the inside out.

Risa says that listening to our body is the “ultimate practice”, embracing whatever is arising through our fill embodiment. As a result we “drink in” the infinite, we presence or “take up” vast spaciousness, infusing our whole being with consciousness that pervades all of existence.  And as we “kiss back”, our heartfelt savoring overflows, embuing this spaciousness with the luminosity of love. The ecstatic “practice” refers to the deepening of our capacity to bear the infinite as beloved, as intimately as our breath, bones, blood.

Awakening Somatic Intelligence” is a book that is alive with stories, exercises and provides the reader with a whole new way to approach any dis-ease or discomfort of our body.  Is is the embodiment of years of study and blending of a innovative bodymind approach to transformative healing and self-renewal.   It teaches embodied mindfulness through breathing, sensing, movement and touch to revitalize the body’s self-organizing intelligence.

If you would like more information about “Awakening Somatic Intelligence” I recommend that you visit Risa’s website by clicking here or watch a YouTube video on Somatic Intelligence by clicking here.  Enjoy this great interview with author Risa Kapro.

John Ratey MDI know that their has been lots of talk recently about our brain health.  Recently I had the honor of doing a podcast with John Ratey MD, the author of a book entitled ” Spark, The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain.” In our interview together we discuss the many benefits and correlations to exercise and our brain health.

I know that many of us do not think about the “brain muscle” when we are doing our exercise programs, but the fact of the matter is that our exercise program has as much importance to keeping our brains sharp and clear as it does on building the other muscles in our body.

In a landmark study, aerobic exercise was shown to be as effective as antidepressants.  That women who exercise lower their chances of developing dementia by 50%.  Exercise even sparks new brain-cell growth, and it happens on three levels. First, it optimizes your mind-set to improve alertness, attention, and motivation; second, it prepares and encourages nerve cells to bind to one another, which is the cellular basis for logging in new information, and third, it spurs the development of new nerve cells from stem cells in the hippocampus.  The evidence is incontrovertible: aerobic exercise physically transforms our brains for peak performance.

The world seems to be getting more and more stressful these days, and the correlation between exercise and stress reduction is not big news to anyone.  But the importance that the exercise plays in improving our brain function is big news!!!.  The face that we’re much less active than our ancestors only exacerbates matters.  Just keep in mind that the more stress you have, the more your body needs to move to keep your brain running smoothly.

The next time you exercise, or more importantly decide to skip exercising think again.  Your brain really needs you to put in extra hours on the treadmill or biking to perform at peak levels.  If you want to learn more about exercise and your brain you can visit John Ratey’s website by clicking here.  There are many articles and references that I know you will find of value.

I hope you enjoy listening to my interview with author John Ratey MD about ” Spark, The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain.”

Dr. Bernie S. SiegelI recently interviewed Dr. Bernie Siegel about his new book entitled ” A Book of Miracles: Inspiring True Stories of Healing, Gratitude, and Love“.  Many of you remember Dr. Siegel from his book entitled ” Love, Medicine and Miracles“.

Dr. Siegel has always been a trail blazer with relation to  spirituality and medicine in conjunctions with healing process.  As Deepak Chopra writes in the forward ” Bernie has looked to expanded science, as we might call it, where spirituality meets the real world, the world of human suffering and human triumph. The hundred  billion neurons in the human brain embody that mysterious meeting point.  Miracles occur where the invisible possibilities of life unfold as realities.”

As Bernie states “To me years ago I would have defined miracles as something for which there was not explanation–today I believe that everything is a miracle.  Life is a miracle, and it is derived from the intelligent, loving conscious energy that created it.  You can call it God or anything you want to, but the nature of life shows us it is intelligent and loving, or we wouldn’t be able to survive a cut finger or infection.

In ” A Book of Miracles‘ Bernie shares some of his favorite stories, and gems garnered from his medical practice and the thousands of emails that he receives. The book is divided into fifteen sections, each consisting of stories of miracles, quotes, anecdotes and Dr. Siegel’s reflections. In this book you will be inspired by the countless stories from patients that have survived cancer, and other life threatening disease.  The stories are truly incredible, insightful and moving.  As you read ” A Book of Miracles” , your heart will be moved and you faith will be strengthened.  Miracles are all around us, and our strong faith in a higher power working on our behalf is frequently what carries us through what often seems like a disaster.

I know you are going to enjoy this wonderful interview with a man committed to helping people understand the power of miracles, and the healing that occurs physically, emotionally,  and spiritually.
