17- Plant Based Diet Myth with Lierre Keith
Lately, the term plant based diets has been thrown around quite a bit across various media channels. For the most part, a plant based diet is basically a vegan or vegetarian diet, it is just a new term that is being used as a marketing tool to catch people's attention. A lot of information that is being told about plant based diets is based off of very poor science, or shown in a very particular way to make the data look better than it really is. One of the main culprits of this...
16- Mineral Balancing with Lydia Joy
If you go to see your doctor, you will most likely hear them say that you should be taking a calcium supplement, or your fish oil, or avoid salt, but is this advice true for all people? When it comes to minerals, there is so much more information that goes into a protocol than just taking one pill to supplement all minerals. The amount of individual minerals is important, but also the ratio of various minerals to each other is just as important! Minerals need specific co-factors in order...
15- Body Image For Women with Jason Seib
Here's a question- if you have a child, what would happen if you told your kid every single day that they are ugly, their legs look terrible, no one will ever love them, and they aren't good enough? Do you think your child will feel very good about themselves? This is exactly what a lot of women (some men do this too) all the time when they look in the mirror. If you don't have confidence in your own body image, how will you ever be happy, or find a way to optimize your own health? These...
14- Sustainable Farming with Joel Salatin
There is a strong movement in the farming industry that is known as sustainable farming. These are farms that utilize nature's patterns to better enhance the land and the production animal products for consumers. The man who has been leading this movement for quite some time is Joel Salatin. We should be paying attention to what is happening at the farming level because these farms are in control of what and how we eat. Farmers are a very important component to our society, and in general...
13- EMFs with Brian Hoyer
As we hear more and more about the potential effects of EMFs, I decided it was time to learn from the experts on what EMFs actually are and how they can cause harm to your body.

Currently he is road tripping around the country in...

09- Neurofeedback with Katie Packwood
The brain is like a very powerful computer, and if some of the electrical signals aren't functioning properly, then it can override the system. There are ways to test which signals are working or not, and this is where the power of neurofeedback comes in. Neurofeedback gives a practitioner the ability to map your brain and see which brain waves are overworking or underworking. By utilizing this map, the practitioner is able to create protocols to help reorganize the way the brain is...
08- Nutrition for Fertility with Lindsay Dam
Pregnancy is a beautiful part of life, yet for some couples the act of trying to get pregnant can be extremely stressful. Some couples have tried for years and years to get pregnant with little success. We are taught how pregnancy happens, but never taught how to prepare the body for pregnancy. Nor are we taught that infertility can be due to the health of the male, not just the female. Lindsay Dam has gone through her own struggles with miscarriages which has led her to her specialty in...
