And what if you could free yourself from these problems simply by breathing?  Well, good news:  Today's guest, Tucker, was diagnosed with OCD and on the brink of suicide. But once he stopped thinking of it as a problem, it vanished. And he shares his story in today's episode, so you can free yourself from whatever problems are making you miserable.  Listen now.  Show Highlights Include How faith-induced guilt and shame about your past can manifest as OCD later in life (7:23)  The insidious way psychiatrists imprison you in your addictions and cause debilitating side effects (even if they have good intentions) (12:32)  Why you don't have a chemical imbalance wrecking your life (even if you've been diagnosed with a mental health disorder) (14:33)  The weird way looking at your health diagnoses as passwords fast tracks your road to health (17:03)  How to skyrocket your patience and tolerance in the next 3 minutes (even if your blood's boiling) (18:38)  Why it's possible to stop being depressed, anxious, and miserable just by breathing (23:36)  Why relying on a therapist to uncover your root issues guarantees you won't overcome them (even if your therapist is right) (28:49)  If you want to radically change how much control you have over your emotions in as little as 20 days, you can go to https://thefreedomspecialist.com/feelbetternow and sign up for the Choose Your Own Emotion course.  If you or somebody you know is looking to drop the ‘F' Bomb of freedom in your life and break free from addiction, depression, anxiety or anything that's making you feel flat-out stuck, head over to https://thefreedomspecialist.com/ and book a call where we can look at your unique situation and give you the roadmap you've been missing.

    James has been suffering from mental health issues most of his life. It all started with a diagnosis of ADHD at the age of 6 years old. He was put on amphetamines for ADHD. He also had depression and anxiety starting around that age when put on the ADHD meds. At around 16 years old he started self medicating with pharmaceutical and street drugs and by 17 years old he was diagnosed with Schizoaffective and rapid cycling Bi Polar disorder. 10 years later, at the age of 27, he had been hospitalized at least 200 times in the psych hospital and emergency department. He developed obesity, pre-diabetes, psoriasis, Irritable bowel syndrome, and chronic fatigue, along with those severe mental health issues. After 6 weeks doing the Carnivore lifestyle he got my life back. All of my health issues, including the severe mental health issues, went into clinical remission and he is on no pharmaceutical medications whatsoever. He hopes to help others who have similar issues recover now.

    Ignacia Soto-Aguilar is a prominent Hollywood makeup artist (FX's “The Bear” / TNT's “Claws”) who grew up with a mother with severe and persistent mental illness. Join us as she shares what it was like to grow up in a household where the most important thing was protecting the secret of her mom's illness and the trauma caused by not openly discussing the elephant in the room.  Soto-Aguilar also shares what happened to her mother and how she has made peace with her experiences now that she is an adult.  To learn more -- or read the transcript -- please visit the official episode page. Guest Bio Ignacia Soto-Aguilar is a Chilean makeup artist raised in the Bay Area of California. After acquiring a Political Science degree from UC Davis, her affinity for beauty and fine arts led her to put a pause on law school. She enrolled in the Paul Mitchell Academy in San Francisco where she discovered the world of makeup design. After her training, that "law school break" became permanent as Ignacia went on to take part in fashion and beauty teams for editorials, and high-profile fashion events for multiple years. Her work has been featured in the likes of Vogue Italy, as well as various national and international publications. Feeling the pull to take her creativity a bit further, Ignacia transitioned into the world of film and television makeup. As evolving filmmaking demanded versatility, it quickly led her to immersion in the art of special effects as well. Her onscreen resume now includes various department head credits alongside some of the most prestigious artists in the industry. In addition to her work as an artist, Ignacia uses her voice and platform to advocate for various causes such as women's rights, race equality, the Nation Immigrant Justice Center (NIJC), as well as animal rescue foundations. She's also an advocate for the Child Mind Institute Organization, which focus on direct care, education, community support, advocacy, and advancing scientific understanding of mental illness in children. Her most recent work includes the hit TNT series “Claws” (starring Niecy Nash, Jenn Lyon, Carrie Preston, Karrueche Tran, and Judy Reyes), which has been defined by its aesthetic range from gritty realism to over-the-top glamour. The series premiered its fourth and final season December 19, 2021.  Inside Mental Health Podcast Host Gabe Howard is an award-winning writer and speaker who lives with bipolar disorder. He is the author of the popular book, "Mental Illness is an Asshole and other Observations," available from Amazon; signed copies are also available directly from the author. Gabe makes his home in the suburbs of Columbus, Ohio. He lives with his supportive wife, Kendall, and a Miniature Schnauzer dog that he never wanted, but now can't imagine life without.

She didn't think she'd be able to move out, to have a partner, or to have a “normal” job. Well, she conquered the first two, but her job is anything but normal. Emma began sharing her story publicly in the online space less than a year after her diagnosis, feeling called to support others in their journey through healing and daily recovery by chronicling her own.   Emma is a firm believer that people should get to be themselves and that none of us aew ever “too much.”We don't always fit into the box the world tells us we're supposed to fit into, and that should be celebrated.   Her Ted Talk “From Sick To Six Figures” can be found here: https://www.ted.com/talks/emma_barrera_from_sick_to_six_figures   Find her on IG at: @righthandglam Find Audrey on IG at: @helloaudreyrose Tag us in a screenshot of this episode shared to your stories so we can share it, and get pumped for you about what INSPIRED YOU!!!

What do we talk about now?' I was supposed to be holding a town hall for an hour, so I said, ‘I'm Alessandra. I'm Bipolar. Does anyone have any questions on mental health?'” (13:44) - Opening up about her condition in an audition - “I said, ‘I want to thank you so much. I live with Bipolar Disorder and I've never read something on a script, never read words that have affected me so much, that have been said so beautifully.'” (17:32) - What Bipolar Disorder feels like to Alessandra - “I didn't pick the best job for mental illness, but I can't imagine doing anything else. So I think that the drive that I have for the continuing of the rejection is what keeps me going.” (22:08) - Alessandra's fanbase and the special connection between Sci-Fi and mental health - “Every single person that I met at this convention, they shared their stories, their families' stories about mental health, about their journeys, about alcoholism, drug addiction, everything. They're just open beings.” (25:26) - Alessandra's advice for people speaking openly about their mental health struggles - “You have to be ready. You have to have a support system that's behind you because if you get a negative reaction, you need to know that there is someone there that you can talk to about it. To brush it off.”
