Ep 143 The Pillars and Potential of Lifestyle Medicine with Dr. Mark Stephany

4/11/2024
Conversation with Dr. Mark Stephany discussing why one should care about their health and take ownership of it through the power of lifestyle as medicine. Topics of Discussion: -Overlap between the traditional medical space and lifestyle medicine -Understanding the Lifestyle Determinants (Pillars) of Health -Differences between functional medicine and lifestyle medicine Dr. Mark Stephany is a board-certified internal medicine physician and American College of Lifestyle Medicine-certified diplomat who has practiced hospital-based medicine for 12 years. The choice for Dr. Mark to lead a healthier life came down to two reasons. One, if he was going to tell his patients to eat better and exercise more, he'd better be practicing what he preached. And two, since he didn't have the best genetics when it came to cardiovascular disease, he did not want to put his family through what he saw his parents and grandparents deal with as it related to their health and happiness. He chose to practice lifestyle medicine because it gives him the opportunity to make a world of difference in other people’s lives within the space of just a few sessions.

Ep 141 Somatic Experiencing with Breathwork & Movement with Kim Lovejoy

3/14/2024
Conversation with Kim Lovejoy about the integration of somatic experiencing and breathwork. Topics of Discussion: -Transition from talk therapy to breathwork. -The body's need to mobilize energy in order to regulate the nervous system. -Intersection between somatic experiencing and breathwork Kim Lovejoy has a passion for dancing with others in the healing spaces between the magical, spiritual and science through somatic experiencing, breathwork and energy healing. She has a respect for the innate healing wisdom held within the body & soul and she loves supporting others in reconnecting with their true self through compassion, humor and self love. As a somatic (body-based) therapist, Kim Lovejoy is interested in how to truly support the nervous system so that we can find a more regulated and grounded state of being.

As we are able to move energy we create more capacity to experience the vast array of feelings and sensations that come with being fully alive. In addition to her individual work, Kim has a passion for healing in community and holds monthly breathwork circles in the Twin Cities and facilitates breathwork at destination retreats throughout the year.
