You may know that personal care products often have enough iodine to be a real problem for those with thyroid disease. In fact, back in 2018, the FDA banned iodine from hand sanitizers when there were a lot of problems showing up with health care workers. So many are asking what product is safe to use. Which ingredients to look out for? Is there a list of safe products? And the difficulty is that because they could change what's in the product, today can be different in the coming weeks or months and we can't keep up with all of them. Joining us is Katie Wells for us to understand more about personal care products that may affect our health and wellness. In this episode, we discuss: (01:11) Introduction to Katie Wells (02:29) What made Katie think about making personal products on her own (03:01) We absorb about 60% of what goes on our skin (04:12) The work of people like Dr.Weston A Price (05:13) Her first product (06:10) Oral healthcare guide (07:45) Many products contain iodine (08:30) What are the products? (09:18) Avoid putting directly harmful things to our body (11:09) Wellness other focus on kids (11:49) 80 20 approach to personal care products (12:59) Talking about mucous membranes (13:53) Another one not related strictly to the personal care: Laundry products (14:55) Steps for someone who wants to change their routine (16:11) Natural products also contain iodine (17:25) Some false general information online about iodine (18:04) Analogy of people who struggle with changing their diet (19:17) Personal care is almost easy (19:44) Chilipad (20:28) Katie's thoughts to someone else who's just considering changing over and things they might expect (22:29) Final thoughts for everyone Katie Wells, CTNC, MCHC, Founder and CEO of WellnessMama.com and Wellnesse.com. A mom of six with a background in journalism, she took health into her own hands and started researching to find answers to her health struggles. Her research turned into a blog and podcast, and she's now written over 1,500 blog posts, three books, and was named one of the 100 most influential people in health and wellness. When she's not reading medical journals, creating new recipes, or recording podcasts, you can find her somewhere outside in the sun with her husband (who she met walking across the country) and kids or undertaking some DIY remodeling project. Obligatory additional unrelated randomness: doula, speed-reader, hates bananas, loves baseball, scuba-diver, INTJ, highly experienced in answering the question, “why.” For more details about Katie Wells, visit her website www.wellnesse.com or connect with her through these platforms: Instagram: instagram.com/wellnessmama Instagram: instagram.com/mywellnesse Facebook: facebook.com/wellnessmama Facebook: facebook.com/wellnesse Did you find this episode helpful?

På sommarlovets sista dag 1998 hittas fyraårige Kevin död i vassen i sjön Glafsfjorden i Arvika. Snart misstänker polisen att det som först ser ut som en drunkningsolycka i själva verket är ett mord. Det finns skador på Kevins kropp som får polisen att misstänka att han utsatts för våld. Till en början utreds anhörigspåret, pedofilspåret och sedan barnspåret. Men ingen verkar ha sett något. Tills en femårig pojke kommer in till polisen och säger att han såg vem som dödade hans bästa kompis Kevin.Robin Dahlén och Christian Karlsson, femåringen och hans två år äldre storebror, kommer att förhöras av polisen ett trettiotal gånger under hösten 1998 och hamnar snart i fokus för polisutredningen. Vad har de egentligen sett? Vet de mer än de berättar?Tillsammans med socialtjänsten och barnpsykologer försöker utredarna få barnen att berätta om vad som egentligen hände den där söndagen i augusti 1998. Och barnen, som först betraktades som vittnen, blev snart polisens huvudmisstänkta. I november 1998 tycks fallet vara löst och polisen Rolf Sandberg säger att Robin och Christian är skyldiga till Kevins död. Det kommer att dröja nästan tjugo år innan någon på allvar ifrågasätter utredningens slutsatser. Man var ju barnamördare, var det man gick och tänkte. Jag hade mördat ett barn när jag var barn. Och så tänker man: Varför? Vad var det som hände? Hade de några bevis? säger Robin Dahlén.Medverkande:Robin Dahlén, Kevins bästa vän. Weine Dahlén, Robins och Christians pappa. Eva Dahlén, Robins och Christians styvmamma. Annika Karlsson, Robin och Christians mamma. Rolf Sandberg, polis. Sara Landström, psykologiprofessor.

Cultural Fire is something we have discussed quite a lot on this podcast. Today, we get to hear from some folks in Parks Canada about how they will be opening up the door to cultural fire. Some really open minded and thoughtful people at Parks have made it possible for Indigenous voices to be heard and for real change to be made. Getting Good Fire back on the land, in a place that is synonymous with “wilderness”, is a huge step in the right direction for understanding our relationship to land. ResourcesA Time For Burning by Henry LewisUnited Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous PeoplesSponsorsWest FraserGreenLink Forestry Inc.Forest ProudQuotes27.02 - 27.08: “If we look at cultural burning just from a fire perspective, you are missing the whole picture about… mental health and other things.”TakeawaysCultural burning differences (11.02)Each Indigenous community burns for different reasons, using different techniques. Impact of colonization (12.26)Cultural burning was carried out till settlers brought in fire exclusion policies. Truth and reconciliation (13.30)Parks Canada is honest about its history of removing people from the landscape. Relearning cultural burning (15.30)Amy began learning the importance of fire on the landscape from Métis Elders.Creating more fire-keepers (19.18)There is a need to train more Indigenous peoples to become fire-keepers. Prescribed vs. cultural burning (21.54)Amy points out that prescribed and cultural burning are not the same. Using cultural practices on the land (25.33)It can only be up to Indigenous peoples to define cultural burning and come into Parks Canada to do that. Making meaningful strides with reconciliation (33.18)Pierre's ex-wife is Miꞌkmaq and he is inspired to bring back their cultural practices, like burning, to the land to maintain ecological integrity for his 2 daughters.Indigenous ways of knowing (41.34)Indigenous peoples feel frustrated by fire policies that were created by non-Indigenous people who had no connection to cultural burning. Long road ahead (45.05) Some challenges in bringing Indigenous knowledge into the mainstream are official processes, oral records, cultural appropriation and multiple land claims.Enabling Indigenous collaboration (47.25)Amy has been brought in as a dedicated resource to help fire managers remove barriers to Indigenous participation with Parks Canada.Programs, people, personalities (52.21)Amy is working on a cultural burn program, a series of workshops, associated field trips, and coordinating with the Métis nation on re-writing fire policy and conducting workshops.Removing barriers (1.01.00)Amy assessed the barriers to managing fire and claims there is work to be done to remove those. Knowledge keeping (1.06.00)Involving Indigenous communities and Elders keeps the knowledge protected so they can burn with support from Parks Canada. Looking ahead (1.14.00)Recent fires have made people nervous to put fire back on the ground, but researchers have affirmed its need. Be a good ally (1.18.18)Being a good ally is “using your power to make space for Indigenous peoples”.

How Nutrition Can Reverse Thyroid Disease & Cause Weight Loss - Part 2 Dr. Alan Christianson has worked with people with thyroid disease for 25 years. He has developed nutritional interventions to help reverse the disease. In this podcast, he speaks with health seeker Adiel Gorel about overfat, fatty liver, iodine toxicity and their consequences, and the Metabolism Reset Diet. Key Insights: Women are six to ten times more likely to have thyroid disease. When people are diagnosed they are usually prescribed a drug for the rest of their lives, but this may be unnecessary. Dr. Christianson explains the concept of overfat. This is different from merely being overweight or obese. This means having fat in the wrong places, causing health problems. He explains how it is sometimes possible to reverse thyroid issues or Hashimoto's by making diet changes, and particularly by bringing iodine levels below a certain threshold. Modern life with its food habits, exposure to plastic derivatives and toxic metals, chronic stress, and disturbance in sleep timings has caused obesity and made weight loss difficult. While age slows down the metabolism and causes us to lose muscle mass, not all chronic disease and dysfunction is due to aging. Many other factors contribute to this. Author, Investment Expert and Wellness Advocate Adiel Gorel isn't just an expert in his chosen fields but also a storyteller who makes complex issues easily accessible. Tune in to his show where he addresses diverse issues with a single aim to improve quality of life. Have questions?

Millions of people are affected by autoimmune diseases like Hashimoto's. If you're one of them, you know how hard it is to find information about what you can do to feel better. One common query that more people have is, 'Will supplementing with Iodine help improve my thyroid disorder?' Then, this session with Dr. Alan Christianson, a Board Certified Naturopathic Endocrinologist, is just what you need to help answer the question, “Is iodine good or bad for Hashimoto's?” Iodine is a mineral that's essential for human health. It's found in many foods, and your body needs it to make thyroid hormones. Some people think that iodine might help improve symptoms of Hashimoto's disease, but there are cases where Iodine supplementation is not recommended as well. So, it is important to clearly know your condition and then go ahead with supplements. To get clarity on this subject, watch the discussion between Dr. Anshul Gupta MD and Dr. Alan Christianson about Iodine supplements and Hashimoto's in this video. ***About the Guest*** Dr. Alan Christianson is a Board Certified Naturopathic Endocrinologist who focuses on Thyroid care.

In this episode of Work in Progress, my guest Josh Christianson and I discuss continuing efforts to increase inclusion and accessibility in the workforce for people with disabilities, both physical and cognitive. Christianson is the inclusion and accessibility lead at Wheelhouse Group and also serves as the project director for the Partnership on Inclusive Apprenticeship (PIA). In both roles, he works to increase the employment of underserved communities, including people with disabilities. Additionally, we are proud to announce, Christianson recently joined the WorkingNation Advisory Board. More than 61 million adults in the U.S. – around one-in-four – identify as having a disability, whether it is around vision, hearing, or motor disabilities related to limbs, or cognitive disabilities such as autism, ADHD, or related to mental health. Some genetic diseases are also considered a disability. Christianson adds, "It's also important to consider that it can come at different times in your life. It's one of the largest – quote unquote – 'minority groups in the world,' but it may not be one you're born into. It may have developed later in life. You may have an accident. With aging, many of us naturally acquire disabilities." Despite being about a quarter of the U.S. population, the labor force participation rate for people with disabilities sits at 32.8%, compared to 77.1% for those without disabilities. Both through his work at Wheelhouse Group and PIA, Christianson works with companies to promote workplace diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA). "Lots of companies are paying more and more attention to it. It's both the right thing to do, and it can help you be a differentiator." Christianson says he believes that when you look at the at the workplace through the lens of disability it enables you to do a better job of inclusion of all the traditionally marginalized and excluded groups. "When you think about inclusion of DEIA broadly, intersectionality is a real thing. If anyone is trying to recruit and retain veterans, women, Black Americans, people who are formally incarcerated, all of those, you're going to be better able to do if you come from an inclusion and accessibility perspective because that perspective is one of universal design. You're trying to do the broadest possible range to allow people to engage with success." Christianson expresses hope that we are moving toward a business culture in which diversity and inclusion become second nature, not an afterthought. "The way we can move in the world – whether it's technology or kind of a broader company culture – is to think about a universal human-centered design, a people approach to work and workplaces. Then we will just be better at recruiting, retaining, supporting, engaging our workforce, and it won't need to be separated and segregated...It'll just be designed into things." This is a very rich and engaging conversation in which we cover so much more. I encourage you to listen to the full conversation with Josh Christianson here, or download the Work in Progress episode wherever you get your podcasts. Follow our coverage from Disability:IN All this week, WorkingNation is reporting from the Disability:IN conference in Dallas. The nonprofit's mission is to ensure that people with disabilities are actively included in the workforce, fully and in a meaningful way. We'll be talking to employers, workers, and job seekers about the challenges people with disabilities face in entering the labor market and efforts to make it more inclusive.

“If you're not vested in the mission; if you're not trusting your leadership, personally, like do they care about you and if you're not having fun, you know it's time to go” Welcome everyone and thanks for tuning in to episode 35 of the It Matters To Me Podcast, a show that celebrates the random through 1-on-1 conversations with people and the passions they pursue. With me on today's journey is Eric Christianson, military veteran, and CEO of Nutrient Survival, a disruptive end-to-end food and beverage nutrition tech company based in Reno-Tahoe, Nevada. Born at the start of the pandemic, Nutrient Survival redefines survival food with its patented top shelf, delicious, Special Ops grade nutrition that's designed for the standards of the US military but intended for people like you and me. Prior to joining the company, Eric worked for over two decades with Fortune 500 and privately held packaged goods companies building strong consumer brands and launching breakthrough innovations. We kick things off by talking about his time in uniform as a West Point graduate and Ranger Qualified Field Artillery Officer with the prestigious 101st Airborne Division. We then get into his personal evolution upon leaving the military and how he eventually found his way to Nutrient Survival after working with companies like Proctor & Gamble and Campbell's Soup. I couldn't shake the phrase “command presence” during my talk with Eric and I think once you listen to his story you'll understand why. Now I haven't been able to sample everything from Nutrient Survival but based on the few that I have, I can't recommend them enough.

Dr. Alan Christianson, NMD is a naturopathic endocrinologist with a focus on thyroid disease. He has been actively seeing patients since 1996 and is a New York Times Bestselling Author of The Metabolism Reset Diet and The Thyroid Reset Diet. Dr. Christianson is the founding president of The Endocrine Association of Naturopathic Physicians and is the founding co-president of The American College of Thyroidology. He has appeared on national TV shows like Dr. Oz, The Doctors, The Today Show, CNN, or print media like SHAPE magazine and Natural Health. Dr. Christianson sits down with Dr. Trevor Cates to share his knowledge and research about thyroid issues in women. He busts the myth that synthetic hormones are inherently worse than natural, explains why instances of thyroid disease increase as women age, and demystifies the functions of some lesser known hormones and nutrients like T2 and iodine. Takeaways: [4:22] Dr. Christianson explains what happens to thyroid hormone levels during pregnancy [7:14] What to ask your doctor for when trying to get your thyroid levels tested [11:50] What an antibody panel tests for and why it is a common way to detect thyroid issues [17:38] Why iodine is one of the most important factors associated with thyroid function [20:33] Other nutrients that are crucial for proper functioning of the thyroid, including selenium and iron [24:50] Comparing natural and synthetic thyroid hormones, and why synthetic thyroid hormones are not as scary as they sound [27:23] Dr. Christianson speaks about the lesser known thyroid hormone T2 [32:35] Discussing how dramatically long-term outlooks have improved for patients with thyroid disease today [37:04] How and why the odds of developing a thyroid issue increase as you age [49:30] Ways to improve your health and reduce your chances of developing hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, and Graves' Disease Mentioned in This Episode: Dr. Christianson's Website Dr. Christianson's Facebook Dr. Christianson's Youtube Channel Dr. Christianson's Pinterest Dr. Christianson's Instagram The Woman's Doctor Website Twitter: “If your thyroid's functioning at 50% you might not know otherwise, but once the hormones of pregnancy come in, that's when it can really show up.” “If you're a speck below a certain window on your iron stores, that will really compound thyroid issues.” “Thyroid disease is something that's going wrong for a long period of time and finally crosses a threshold, and that's why it's more common with age.”
There are so many questions about thyroid TSH levels today, specifically about its effect on general health. There are a lot of hypotheses on how to treat people with high or low TSH levels. This includes conventional medicine, weight loss, and the naturopathic ways to reverse the issue. Are we to always base the prognosis on charts? Can we still reverse the disease? These are the questions that are digging into our minds. Let us know why “the results are not always linear”, the relationship of our weight to our thyroid function, and let's learn “the creative ways to do better” with our thyroid issues.

How can First Nation and Indigenous communities regain power over their long-honed land stewardship and cultural burning practices? How can these practices be done without the influence of Westernized practices, which includes prescribed burning?Today's guest Amy Cardinal Christianson, a Métis woman and Fire Social Scientist for the Canadian Forest Service, addressed these questions (and so, so many others) for us in today's episode. On top of advocating for greater authority for First Nation communities over their ancestral lands, Amy also has an extensive background in researching the connection between First Nation communities and wildfire. Her most recent research centers heavily on wildfire evacuations in First Nations communities in Canada; various overlapping factors (like remote locations and a lack of emergency response infrastructure) often result in disproportionate wildfire impacts to First Nations communities.We owe a huge thank you to Amy for coming on the show to share her perspective; it was a privilege to learn about the work she's involved in, as well as how First Nations communities continue to reestablish control over their homelands—while touching on some of the roadblocks she's experienced along the way.

Welcome back to another episode of the Light After Trauma podcast. I am your host, Alyssa Scolari, and we have part two today of our episode about narcissism with Rebecca Christianson, who you all know very well at this point, is the founder and owner of Rebellious Wellness Counseling in South Jersey. We are just going to jump right into it, pick up where we left off. So if you have not listened to last week's episode, please be sure to do so because we are breaking down narcissism into a two-part episode and this is part two. So if you didn't listen to part one, please remember to go back and listen. And really, we are just picking up where we left off. And where we left off is wanting to talk about the differences between covert narcissism and overt narcissism because narcissism can be glaring and in your face, but it can also be much more subtle. And I think Rebecca and I can probably both agree that both types are terrible, but covert narcissism can be, I don't know if I want to say a little bit more insidious, but it can be much more confusing for the victims. So do you want to take it, Rebecca? What do you have to say on that? Rebecca Christianson [01:43]: One of the ways that narcissism can be covert is that sometimes narcissists play this down, depressed ... They elicit empathy and you always end up feeling sorry for them. And so people are like, "Oh no, they're not a narcissist. They're depressed," but certainly there are times where people are depressed and are down and do need empathy and support. The problem is that a narcissist uses that to entice people to feel sorry for them. But those traits of narcissism like selfishness and they're never really trying to help other people, it's always just about getting people to help them. It's always about them. Alyssa Scolari [02:33]: Yes. Yeah, I can think in a relationship, a red flag for this could be ... And I guess I should say this and I think we might have said this in the other episode, but if we didn't, then it bears saying now. So Rebecca and I are giving examples, but the loved one in your life that you are thinking may or may not be a narcissist, we are not diagnosing this person. We're not that person's therapist, so we can't diagnose people. And simply because we are giving traits of what a narcissist can look like does not necessarily mean that somebody who has these traits is always going to be a narcissist. So just keep that in mind as you go through this process and just reflecting off of what Rebecca said, I think, a good example might be. The narcissist even tries to elicit sympathy if you are the one with a problem. Right? Would you agree with that? Rebecca Christianson [03:34]: Yep. Yes. Right. They elicit sympathy even if you're the one that has the problem, they will turn it around so that you are then taking care of them. They lack the ability to have compassion or empathy for other people. It always has to turn back around them so there's a very selfish nature in a covert narcissist and they keep you in this detrimental cycle. And it's really sometimes hard to see because we typically think of a narcissist, an overt narcissist, who is egocentric and the need for adoration and arrogant, also very selfish and lack sympathy, but very overt about it. And a covert narcissist does that very under the radar. It's hard to see sometimes. Alyssa Scolari [04:30]: Yeah. I think a covert narcissist, we can look at Adolf Hitler, I think we could say, was a clear example. And potentially some other political leaders in this world at this very moment, we can clearly identify them as overt narcissists. They are loud and out there about the fact that they really don't care about anybody but themselves and their own personal gains. Rebecca Christianson [04:58]: But they're very charming and there's that love bombing stage that we did talk about, I think, in part one, and they have this way of making you believe that even though they have those personality traits, you're the one that sees the real them. You're the one that can change them. You're the one that can help them understand why other people see them that way. They can hook you until you hit the devalue phase and discard phase. But even though the way we're talking about them, it seems like, "Well, who would even want to be friends with them?" they have a way, and that's the love bonding stage. They have a way of making you feel like a million dollars when you're with them in the beginning. Alyssa Scolari [05:44]: Yes, they're so charismatic, so charismatic. And I think also another good way to identify a covert narcissist is the one upper. Who's the one upper in your life? You had a bad day, they had a worse one. You got a nail in your tire. Well, guess what? They got four nails in their tire. Your kid is difficult. Well, guess what? The kid that they had is 20 times more difficult. You can't even begin to imagine how hard life is for them. Yeah. It's like the constant one upper in your life. Rebecca Christianson [06:20]: Yes. Yeah, absolutely. You're a hundred percent right about that. I think one of the things we talked about in this interview is are all narcissist abusive? Now, I did some research and I thought about that and that's a hard one. I don't know how to answer that. I really don't. Alyssa Scolari [06:44]: Yeah. I was thinking about this question too, and it's hard for me to picture a situation in which they're not abusive. I know we're not supposed to really be using all or nothing generalizations about people, but it's really hard for me to picture a narcissist who isn't abusive because they feed off of the attention from others. So it's not like a narcissist would ever just be a lone wolf, that they would never have an effect on other people. Right? Rebecca Christianson [07:27]: That's exactly what I thought too, is it's hard to imagine a scenario where that would not be an abusive cycle, where that would not turn into. It's really hard to imagine that. And I think one of the things that piggybacks of what we were saying earlier, as we're talking about, you think, "Well, who would want to be friends with somebody like that? Who would want to be in a relationship?" And as you mentioned, they're huge charmers. Their personalities are bigger than life. You're drawn to them. Rebecca Christianson [07:58]: And I think a lot of times, at least when I see people, I'm sure when you see people too, who have been victims of narcissists, they feel ashamed and feel like there's something about them that allowed them to ... They're not smart or they're not self-aware, all these different things, so I thought that was really important to point that narcissists get attracted to people who are intelligent, who have really good qualities. They are empathic and they do have a lot of compassion and they show a lot of heart and they're open. That's who narcissists are attracted to. So if you have those qualities, which are all really good qualities, you're a target for a narcissist. They need their ego fed and they need it fed by somebody who's intelligent and self-aware and open and empathic and can be vulnerable and are mature and have a lot of friends. That's who they need their ego fed, so the qualities that most of us strive to have are all what narcissists target. Alyssa Scolari [09:09]: A thousand percent, a thousand percent. They're not going for easy prey because it doesn't do anything for their ego. Relationships are all about feeding their ego. Rebecca Christianson [09:19]: All about feeding their ego. People who are all often successful and have many achievements and all those things, because that is who they want to feed their ego. If they can hook them, it just is all the better, too. And I think that's an important thing for people because they break you and they come out of that abusive relationship and you feel none of those things about yourself. That feels like another person. That feels like the former you. Therapy for somebody who's a victim of that is about helping them reattach to that person that they are, that they still are, but they've lost in this abusive cycle. They've lost themselves, but helping them reattach to who they really are and mend friendships that they've lost and mend the relationship with themselves. Rebecca Christianson [10:17]: I read this thing about the first step is learning how to observe, be an observer and observe your own thoughts and feelings and that person's thoughts and feelings and actions. And when you can start just observing, you can then start to have some detachment from the cycle, that abusive cycle, and some clarity. And then, obviously once you start to detach, going to therapy and starting to reattach to that former self that you feel like you lost is so important. But I read this thing about, if you don't know where to start, start meditating and be mindful, because meditation teaches you how to detach from your thoughts and feelings. And I always thought that was such a great piece of advice because it's so true. If you just start meditating, just the act of meditating forces you to detach from your thoughts and feelings and observe them, and then you start to observe their thoughts and feelings. And when you can learn to detach them a little bit, then you stop the effect of that abuse momentarily so that you can start to see it for what it is instead of get sucked into it. And I thought that was really good advice. Alyssa Scolari [11:37]: Yeah. I love that. And I almost think that can sometimes be the role of what the therapist does if you aren't able to get there in that moment, where you can be mindful and step outside yourself. That's where I think a therapist is so important. As you're talking, I'm thinking about myself and the clients that I've dealt with who have had narcissists in their lives and they haven't been able to do that at first. So it's the thing that us as therapists do because we are literally the outside person and we can say, "Hey, this is what this is looking like," and then we teach you to then be able to do that for yourself. And yeah, I think that is the first big step to healing. Rebecca Christianson [12:22]: I do too. I do too. I thought that was really ... And then mindfulness teaches you to be aware of the in the moment and be aware of how you're reacting, what you're thinking, what you're feeling and how you're reacting. And sometimes when I teach mindfulness, as in DBT, that one whole section of DBT, one of the cornerstones of DBT is mindfulness. And sometimes when I teach it, I talk about self-respect and personal integrity and being able to be mindful of what you're thinking, what you're feeling and what how you're reacting and how that's landing and what your intent is. And there's a certain amount of self-respect and personal integrity when you can stay mindful and be aware of those things because you're more likely to react in a way that is congruent with your intent. I thought that was really interesting. Also, the role of a therapist in helping somebody heal from narcissistic abuse, to help people, teach people, mindfulness because you get sucked into that abuse and you become reactive. That's why I say that can break you. You can become somebody that you don't even recognize and ... Alyssa Scolari [13:48]: Oh, absolutely. Rebecca Christianson [13:50]: Yep. And you can break off friendships, family relationships, whatever you have to do to keep that relationship because it becomes all important to you, so I feel like mindfulness is a really important skill too, in the treatment of healing from a narcissist. Alyssa Scolari [14:10]: Yes. No, it's so important. And I think about my own experiences and I remember ... You say you don't even recognize yourself. You don't even know how you end up light years away from who you used to be and you don't know how you got there or how you're even going to begin to get yourself back. I remember when I was dating a narcissist and for the listeners, if you've been a long time listener on this podcast, you all know about my experience with being in a very abusive relationship. I left my home, moved in with this dude. And before I knew it, literally before I knew it, I had cut off my entire family, didn't speak to any of them, and I was looking for apartments for us to live in. I was a college kid. I couldn't afford an apartment. I could barely afford a cup of coffee, but I was suddenly about to pay 50% of the rent for a really fancy apartment in a really ritzy area because he told me that this would make me happy. And I was like, "This doesn't make me happy. I'm going to be alone and broke. And you're going to be living with me and I don't even think I like you." Alyssa Scolari [15:34]: You lose yourself. And I think, in talking about the treatment that victims get, mindfulness, absolutely. And I think further along that journey is boundary setting. Whether or not you're still in that relationship, boundary setting. Would you agree with that? Rebecca Christianson [15:59]: Absolutely. Yes, absolutely. I think that's, like you said, farther down that journey. I feel like once you can start to detach from the thoughts and feelings that you're having and you can observe what's happening for you and you can observe what's happening for them and you can start to identify the abuse and you can start to become mindful and aware of what your needs and wants are and not just what the narcissist's needs are wants and your desire to fulfill that bottomless well, you can start to, again, focus on what some of your needs are wants are. I feel like then boundary setting is ... And some people were really good at boundary setting and then they got caught up in a narcissistic abuse cycle and they've lost that ability. It's just remembering boundaries are life sustaining. We need boundaries for everything and ... Alyssa Scolari [16:58]: Your whole life. Rebecca Christianson [17:00]: Your whole life. Boundaries do not make you a selfish person. Boundaries make you a healthy person. Alyssa Scolari [17:05]: Yes, and this is important. This is especially important if the narcissist in your life is a parent or is the person who raised you. This is especially important because oftentimes, we have parents or caregivers who are narcissists and it's not so easy to just cut them off because you can't just break up with them. You breaking up with a caregiver doesn't make them not your caregiver. You breaking up with a parent doesn't mean that they're no longer your parent. Now, you could go no contact, but for some people, it takes years to get there. And for some people, that's never an option, so I think especially when the narcissist in your life is a parent, I think boundaries are crucial. Crucial down the road, of course, after you learn how to solidify your voice and take back what was taken from you. Rebecca Christianson [18:11]: Yep. Exactly. No, I absolutely agree. Yes. Alyssa Scolari [18:15]: Now, we're talking about treatment for the victim of a narcissist, but what about treatment for a narcissist? Can narcissists get treatment? Will they get treatment? And if they do, what does that look like? Rebecca Christianson [18:36]: I have, over the years, seen a few narcissists that have gotten treatment, have been successful, I should say, in treatment. So they often do not seek treatment because this is an ingrained personality disorder. And like you said, we are not diagnosing somebody that we don't know in somebody else's life. To be diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder, you have to meet criteria for a period of time and you have to meet the criteria in the DSM-5, and that has to be over a period of time. It's not just like these personality traits are present in one relationship. They have to be there pervasively for a period of time. But I have seen over the years, a handful of narcissists that have successfully been treated. And in all of those cases, them seeking treatment was brought on by a traumatic event in their life or an illness or accident that was life-threatening. So oftentimes, that is when the consequences of some of these personality traits hit home. When they are facing a life change or an illness, something that could possibly, they would need a caretaker or they're going through treatment, sometimes that is when some of these personality traits, they become aware of some of these personality traits and how they have impacted other people because they've alienated so many people. Rebecca Christianson [20:22]: Or some tragedy, so I have seen one narcissist who went through the loss of a child and that really shook him to the core. I think it was some of his family and friends' reactions to that tragic loss that made him seek treatment and want to understand why he was that way and wanted to change. Rebecca Christianson [20:45]: And it was years ago, many years ago, but I do believe that he successfully changed. Treatment, for him, was some exposure therapy, learning to sit with the uncomfortable truth of his fragile ego and how he would do almost anything to cover that anxiety or for somebody else to soothe that anxiety. So exposure therapy and DBT, because I think that all people with narcissistic personality disorder really missed some of the cornerstones that DBT can teach you, like emotion regulation, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness. I think they're missing all of those. Mindfulness, I think they're missing all of those. They didn't learn them along the way because they learned very early on to get their needs met. They had to manipulate and that worked for them, so they never stopped manipulating. They never learned how to tolerate distress. They never learned how to regulate their own emotions. They just expect somebody else to feed that fragile ego and they keep manipulating to get that need met. They don't really worry about meeting their own needs. They never meet their own needs. Rebecca Christianson [22:09]: So some exposure, where they are sitting, not literally naked, but emotionally naked and being able to force them to regulate those emotions, and learn skills, then, to regulate those emotions ... And interpersonal effectiveness is really fascinating, the few times that I've been able to teach that to a narcissist, because they think they are very interpersonally effective because they always get their needs met. But what they don't realize is that they burn through, it's in an abusive way, so even though they think are getting their needs met, they're just chewing up and spitting out somebody else. They're not actually meeting that need and ... Alyssa Scolari [22:58]: Right. They're not fostering any genuine connections. Rebecca Christianson [23:01]: Nope. And so that's always fascinating. I think they can. I think typically, it's too painful for them and so I feel like that's why it has to take a life threatening illness or some tragedy for them to get this ... Not always, I mean, but ... Alyssa Scolari [23:23]: Yeah. For the listeners out there who might not know what DBT is, that term might be new. I'm trying to think of a good way to summarize what DBT is. I love DBT and I used to hate it, but your girl loves it now. DBT is a type of therapy. It stands for dialectical behavioral therapy and that is really a fancy term for ... Dialectical, that term in itself means that both can exist, the good and the bad, living in the dialectic, where all of it can be true and you can sit with it. Would you agree with that or am I off on that definition? Rebecca Christianson [24:08]: Yeah. No, I think that's spot on. It's a set of skills. Alyssa Scolari [24:13]: Yeah. DBT is really heavy with skills that, again, teach you how to effectively communicate with other people, how to deal with your emotions if your emotions are feeling so intense and out of control. Anything else? I feel like that sums it up. It's teaching you basic life skills. But when I say basic, things that we really all need because nobody gets enough of it, like learning how to foster good relationships, learning about boundaries, learning about empathy, learning about self-compassion for yourself, taking care of yourself emotionally, things like that. Rebecca Christianson [24:55]: And learning how to relate authentically. I think understanding how to relate your intent and have it land the way you want it to land and mindfulness, being mindful. I think lots of things have impacted our ability to be mindful, our phones, social media, immediate gratification, so those have all impacted our ability to be mindful, so that's what DBT is. It's skills training to learn skills related to those concepts that we all need, that we all need to have. Alyssa Scolari [25:34]: That we all need, exactly. Exactly. And then so going back to what you were saying about narcissists and what will cause them to get treatment, absolutely. And I work with a lot of teenagers and young adults. I work with people of all ages, but most of my practice is filled with lots of teenagers and young adults. And I will also see that parents who are narcissists will only go to therapy after their child has gone no contact or has said, in a case of parents who are divorced, if the child lives with dad and dad is the narcissist, they're like, "I'm going to live with mom. That's it, I'm done," and that is what will land a parent in therapy. My teens or my young adults will come in and they'll be like, "Well, now all of a sudden, my mom is in therapy. I've been asking her for five years to go to therapy when I was living with her. I move out and suddenly she's in therapy." Alyssa Scolari [26:34]: But often what I find, too, with some narcissists is that if they do go to therapy, they will often seek out a therapist who they can also manipulate and who will validate them. I've seen a lot of the parents of my kids go to therapy and then they'll come home and they'll be like, "Well, my therapist thinks that you are being B, B, B, B, B, B, blah." Now, whether or not the therapist actually said that, who knows, but the narcissist's interpretation of therapy can often be to their benefit and then sometimes it can be another tool in their arsenal that they can use against their child. I'm sure you've seen that sometimes, right? Rebecca Christianson [27:17]: Yes, absolutely. Yep. It can be another tool that they use, like, "Well, my therapist said," but that therapist is getting one viewpoint. And I always think as a therapist, if it looks really simple, there's probably more to the story. If it looks like, "Oh, this person is the best parent in the world. Why would there be a problem? It must be the other parent or the child or whatever," that I feel like you're probably not getting the whole story. And the other time I think that narcissists show up in therapy is in couples therapy, when they're on the brink of divorce. And the person that they have abused is finally leaving or has left or has filed for divorce or whatever and they're scared, so that is always really difficult to mediate in couples therapy. Alyssa Scolari [28:27]: So hard. Rebecca Christianson [28:29]: Yep, really difficult. Alyssa Scolari [28:31]: It's so hard. So one last question that I'm curious to know your opinion on is if somebody is listening to this out there right now and they're like, "Oh my gosh, I think that I have a narcissist in my life. I think that I have somebody in my life who is a narcissist." Would you recommend that they say it to the person that they think is a narcissist and say, "You need to go get help." Have you ever seen that that has been effective? Rebecca Christianson [29:08]: No, I don't. I don't think a narcissist is going to take that and that critique and become suddenly self-aware and less selfish. I think that they're going to be verbally abusive to the person who says, "I think you're a narcissist." So I think that if somebody thinks that they're in a relationship with a narcissist and they want to stay in the relationship, they should consider couples counseling because I would let the professional point that out. Rebecca Christianson [29:53]: And I think that's the only time that maybe they might be, if they have a connection to a therapist and feel like that therapist understands or at least has the good of the relationship and is their priority, then there's a chance that they might listen that some of their traits. I rarely think that calling a narcissist a narcissist is a good idea. I really don't think, even as a therapist. I usually just identify the traits, like, "Can you understand how that feels self-serving? Can you understand how that can be really construed as there's a flavor of arrogance in that?" I feel like that's much more palatable to a narcissist than being like, "I think you're a narcissist. You should ..." I just feel like that's aggressive. Alyssa Scolari [30:53]: Yes, absolutely. Rebecca Christianson [30:53]: So I feel like pointing out the traits ... That's not to say that I haven't said, "I think that you have a lot of narcissistic traits." I just don't always say that till I formed a relationship where they trust me enough that I can say that and they'll actually receive it as constructive. Alyssa Scolari [31:17]: Right. Exactly. Exactly. Well, thank you so much for joining [crosstalk 00:31:26] part two with me. Rebecca Christianson [31:26]: Yes. Always a pleasure. Alyssa Scolari [31:27]: This is one of my, I don't know. I'm very passionate about talking about this. I love it. And I also think that narcissism can be really overused and I think it's one of those words that people just throw out there very lightly, but it's actually really, really damaging. So, just like we talked about, if you are listening and you resonate with this and you feel like you have a narcissist in your life, you could potentially be opening yourself up to being hurt and opening yourself up to more abuse if you do directly confront that person and say, "Hey, I think you're a narcissist." And I think that either couples counseling or if it's a parent or if you're in a relationship and you don't want to continue the relationship or you don't know, get help for yourself because ultimately, that is all we can do, is help ourselves. We can't change people. So I think that's really important to keep in mind because when we are in relationships, we love other people and we want to see that other person get help, but you simply can't and you have to come first. Alyssa Scolari [32:39]: So thank you so much for joining me today. Rebecca Christianson [32:42]: Absolutely. Always a pleasure. Alyssa Scolari [32:45]: Thank you. I hope that everybody has a wonderful week. Hang in there. I know times are tough right now. I will be back next week with another episode. And until then, I will be holding you all in the light.

Welcome back to another episode of The Light After Trauma podcast. I'm your host, Alyssa Scolari. This is a two part, well, really a two part series. This is going to be two episodes today, and it is a guest episode. It has been a while since we've had a guest episode. I know that we he had talked about me sort of reeling back on guest episodes and being much more particular with who's coming on the show, just because I know that you all are really interested and have really, really liked the solo episodes that I've done. Alyssa Scolari [00:57]: But you all also love today's guest, who is a friend of the family, friend of the podcast, it's Rebecca Christianson. Duh, would it be anyone else? We love Rebecca. She has been on this podcast to talk about grief. She's been on the podcast to talk about guilt and shame, and she's incredible. Alyssa Scolari [01:19]: Today she's on the podcast to talk about narcissism. And I know this one's going to be a really big hit for you all because narcissism is honestly a very hot term right now. It is a really hot topic. It is all over TikTok, all over social media. But before we dive right into narcissism, I just want to take a minute to let you know who Rebecca is. Alyssa Scolari [01:41]: If you are a new listener, Rebecca really started out as a mentor for me and became, honestly, one of my closest friends. She's absolutely a soulmate of mine. We were absolutely meant to know each other in this life and every other life after that. And she really is the reason why I am the therapist that I am today. Alyssa Scolari [02:05]: So Rebecca is the founder of a group practice called Rebellious Wellness Counseling in the state of New Jersey in the United States. And I will, of course, link her group practice. She works with a bunch of wonderful people. She does amazing work. She is, especially you do a lot of grief, right? Like that's like you special when I think of you, I think like you do grief, but you also do couples, right? Rebecca Christianson [02:33]: Yes. Alyssa Scolari [02:34]: Yeah. Rebecca Christianson [02:34]: Yes. Alyssa Scolari [02:35]: Rebecca does two of the hardest things that I think any therapist can do. So I will absolutely link her group practice in the show notes for today. So let's just hand it over to Rebecca. Welcome. Rebecca Christianson [02:51]: Thank you. Thanks for having me. You always say the nicest things. You are the therapist that you are because you are extremely talented and work really hard, but thank you for giving me credit for that. Alyssa Scolari [03:04]: All shucks. Thank you. Rebecca Christianson [03:05]: Yeah. So I am always honored to be on the podcast. I love, obviously, I love talking to you. I love tackling some of these topics that I think are complex topics that everybody has to handle, but don't always understand exactly how to handle it or how it affects their lives. So I'm happy to be on it. Alyssa Scolari [03:27]: Yeah, exactly, exactly. And we make a really good team, which is why I feel like tackling narcissism today is like, you and I are really, really well suited to do this together because it's a really heavy topic, right? Rebecca Christianson [03:42]: Yep. Mm-hmm [affirmative]. Alyssa Scolari [03:43]: And it's something that I think gets talked about a lot, but also often very misused and overused. And so I think here's an interesting fact for y'all, right? So the word narcissism in itself is at actually derived from the Greek mythological figure, Narcissus. And basically the story of Narcissus is that he fell in love with his own reflection. And what narcissism is at its core is really just self-absorption but pathological self absorption. Alyssa Scolari [04:21]: So that's where the name comes from. And I think when it comes to narcissism, there's one way that therapists diagnose it. But then there's an entirely different way that I think you guys can understand it and recognize it in others. And that's kind of a little bit more important. Alyssa Scolari [04:48]: So the way that therapists diagnose it is, obviously, you all have heard of the DSM. I've talked about it on this podcast before. It's like the holy grail for mental health diagnoses. It's what therapists turn to in order to diagnose somebody. And there is a personality disorder in there called Narcissistic Personality Disorder. And this is how therapists would really diagnose somebody. And really what it is it's this pattern of grandiosity. Alyssa Scolari [05:23]: They just, people, who think that they just have this huge amount of self importance. They often exaggerate their achievements and their talents. They are preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, or ideal love. They believe that they are super special and unique and that they are very high status and everyone else is below them. They require excessive admiration. They constantly need other people to be doting on them and thinking that they are just the bees knees. Alyssa Scolari [06:01]: They have an extreme sense of self entitlement, very unreasonable expectations, and they always think that they should be favored above everyone else. They exploit people, especially those who are closest to them. In other words, they try to take advantage of the people around them to meet their own needs. And they lack empathy. They cannot identify with feelings or needs of others and they often can seem very arrogant, right? Alyssa Scolari [06:33]: So that's a very brief run through of what those symptoms look like in the book that therapists use to diagnose. But it's a little bit different when we're just in our day to day life. So Rebecca, can you actually talk about, I don't know. I feel like what I just said was a very hoity-toity way of describing narcissism. Can you break this down? What does that actually look like day to day? Rebecca Christianson [07:02]: Yes, absolutely. I think that one of the things that's important to remember about narcissist is that underneath it all, it's a very, very fragile ego and that extremely, extremely fragile ego, came from somewhere, right? Oftentimes it comes from childhood trauma. Oftentimes it comes from neglect or abuse where a child doesn't get their needs met. So they have to manipulate to get their own needs met and they build this wall or protection around that very fragile ego. And no one can see the fragile ego at any cost. So they will always externally get their needs met instead of getting their needs met from within. Rebecca Christianson [07:55]: That would be... The only thing that was really healing for them is to go in and process through the things that made that ego so fragile. But they, at a very young age, protect that fragile ego at all costs. At all costs. At the cost to anyone else their needs will always come first and that the hallmark of a narcissist. Rebecca Christianson [08:14]: So I'm going to quote Shahida Arabi who wrote, Becoming the Narcissist Nightmare, because this is my favorite quote about narcissist. It says, "The first thing you must know about a narcissist is that you will never truly know anything about the narcissist." Alyssa Scolari [08:30]: Ugh. Yes, yes. That's it, case closed. End of episode. Rebecca Christianson [08:37]: Closed, there you go. You'll never really know. And I really believe that because they don't know. They've created such a false self that they don't even remember why they became a narcissist. One of the questions I get all the time is like, "Can a narcissist heal? Can they get better?" And the answer to that's, yes. Rarely do they do the work that's required to get better, but they can. But that would be going back to the childhood trauma, whatever happened that made them realize that they felt they needed to manipulate their environment to get their needs met, that they were not lovable enough to get their needs met just by being who they were. Rebecca Christianson [09:29]: And that's so painful. Usually by the time they show up in our office, that's so painful that they rarely do that. But the times that I've seen narcissists actually do that work is either they have a terminal illness, and because they have never truly been able to connect authentically with anyone, they don't have very many people who are going to take care of them. Or they've had such a traumatic loss in their life that it's shocked them to their core. And they don't want to continue to live that way. Rebecca Christianson [10:03]: So, those are the times. But I think how it would show up, you said a lot of the things, I think that when you notice somebody has the inability to empathize with you or with other people at all, like if you have a friend that's a narcissist and you tell them they have the inability to empathize, but they understand people, so they can fake empathy. They can... Alyssa Scolari [10:30]: Yes. They're typically very, very charming. Rebecca Christianson [10:34]: Mm-hmm [affirmative]. Alyssa Scolari [10:34]: But when it comes to empathy, it could look like you confide in a friend about something and or you tell a friend something, right? And if that friend goes, "Oh, well they deserved it. They deserved it. They had that coming." Right? Or it could be, this person responds in a way that's like completely ignores what you're talking about and shifts the focus onto them. "Oh, well, when I was that age, it was even harder for me. Babababa." Rebecca Christianson [11:07]: Mm-hmm [affirmative]. Alyssa Scolari [11:07]: Yeah. Rebecca Christianson [11:07]: Yep. Or they will fake empathy if they think that's going to get them something. So they'll be like, "Oh, that was a hard day at work." And like this, whatever it is, because they think that they're going to get something out of that. So sometimes they'll fake empathy to get their own need met at the end of the day. And then if that doesn't happen, they get angry. So the inability to authentically apologize, see hallmark up. You notice that somebody cannot take accountability. They will skirt accountability for something that they have done that has hurt the other person or isn't right or whatever. They cannot authentically apologize. Rebecca Christianson [11:47]: You said this before, but it will always be somebody else's fault. There will always be a reason why they cannot take accountability and authentically apologize. Also hallmark of when you notice that with someone that you're around or involved with, that's definitely a hallmark sign. And then if you confront them, they become extremely angry. Rebecca Christianson [12:11]: In fact, there's a term called Narcissistic Rage. And that's if they perceive their ego as being challenged, some people have narcissistic rage. And then you did a podcast earlier that I listened to about gaslighting. This is where gaslighting comes in. They're unable to take accountability. So they will gaslight at all costs. And it becomes, because they're usually extremely bright and charming, it can become almost impossible to pick up on the gaslighting. Rebecca Christianson [12:47]: Some people are so good at that, that your head is spinning and you don't even understand what just happened. It's not until you tell somebody outside of that interaction or relationship that they might be able to see, "I think they were gaslighting you." Because it's real, some people become really good, they become professionals at not taking accountability. Rebecca Christianson [13:14]: And the thing about, again, they're very intuitive, very perceptive, very charming, and very bright. So they will learn things about you, your Achilles heel, your soft spots, and that's where they're going to hit. So when they gaslight you, it's not going to be always about the actual thing they're not taking accountability for. They're going to gaslight you and hit where they know it hurts so that you will be blindsided, taken off guard, all these other things. So ultimately they don't have to take accountability. Rebecca Christianson [13:47]: I think those, and then you mentioned self-absorbed, always bringing the conversation back to themselves. I feel like if you're in a relationship or a friendship or a work relationship with somebody who has more than one of those characteristics, they are probably a narcissist. Alyssa Scolari [14:05]: Red flags, red flags, red flags, red flags. Yeah. And I think gaslighting is the narcissists best friend. Best friend, that is their biggest tool. And as you're kind of saying all this, I feel like now's a really good time to read the Narcissist's Prayer. So this perfectly, for the listeners out there, reflects everything that Rebecca is saying and then some. It's like, The narcissist's prayer is, and by the way I did not write this. And I actually don't know who wrote this. I tried to look it up and there's a couple different versions of it, but I don't know. It says the author is unknown when it comes to this specific version of it. Alyssa Scolari [14:50]: But the Narcissist's Prayer is, "That didn't happen. And if it did, it is not a big deal. And if it was a big deal, then it was not my fault. And if it was my fault, well, then I didn't mean it. And if I did mean it, then you deserved it. Now this conversation is over. I am done talking about it." Rebecca Christianson [15:12]: I think that says it perfectly. And so many people, here's the thing about narcissists, right? So many people, as you were saying, all of the kind of DSM-IV criteria, I think two things. I think one on a bad day, we all feel selfish, right? It's normal to have moments of time where we feel selfish, that's normal. But we feel remorse and regret when that selfishness might have been at the expense of someone else. But there's remorse, there's guilt or shame. Rebecca Christianson [15:48]: Narcissists do not feel guilt or shame for that. They are self-absorbed to a pathological point, and you said that in the beginning and I wanted to reiterate that, they're not just having a selfish day. They're not just self-absorbed about the promotion they want at work. It's a way of living for them. It's to a pathological point. Rebecca Christianson [16:11]: And I think we all have narcissist in our lives and it's hard. It's hard because when you get close to, and I know Part Two is going to be more about the relationship with the narcissist, but when you get close to putting up a boundary with a narcissist, they love bomb. And when they love bomb, it feels as if they've heard you and they understand the error of their ways. Rebecca Christianson [16:36]: They don't say that because they can't take accountability. It just feels that way. And then you're hooked again. Then you're hooked again. And these characteristics will show up again. So if you think you're in a relationship or have a friend or a work relationship where you're in, or you think they're a narcissist, and you start to point that out or you start to set different boundaries because that doesn't feel good, and they make you feel like they understand the error of their ways they want to change. But these show back up again, run, run because they're a narcissist. Alyssa Scolari [17:13]: Run far. Rebecca Christianson [17:14]: And they just love bombed you. And now you're going to be right back in the same cycle. And gaslighting is, I think, the number one way that narcissists manipulate, but they also use silent treatment. Alyssa Scolari [17:25]: Yes. Rebecca Christianson [17:26]: Silence actually sets off the same pain receptors as physical pain. Alyssa Scolari [17:33]: Oh, I did not know that. It makes sense. Rebecca Christianson [17:36]: It does. Giving someone the silent treatment sets off the same pain receptors as actual physical pain in our brain. It's so painful to be ignored, rejected, abandoned to feel those feelings to suddenly have silence. So it's also a huge manipulation tactic for narcissists. Rebecca Christianson [17:54]: Stonewalling, the end of the prayer that you read, "And I am done with this relationship," refusing to talk about things is also a huge manipulation tactic. And then comparison. So they need the attention from everyone, right? So they will often compare what you're giving to what other people, past girl friends, other people that they are in their lives can give them, can feed them. So another huge manipulation tactic is to compare what you're offering to other people, whether that's imagined or real, to get you to up your ante, to get you to do more. Alyssa Scolari [18:38]: Yeah. And I also think that another too, well, you mentioned the love bombing, right? And for folks out there who may not have heard of this phrase before or may have heard of it, and don't quite know what it is love bombing is, again, the narcissist isn't taking accountability for his or her or their actions, but they are showering you with gifts, showering you with affection, spending money, maybe money that they don't even have, on you. Alyssa Scolari [19:06]: Suddenly you have that Prada bag that you have always wanted. Suddenly they are paying for you to go on a trip. Suddenly, you've been asking for three years to go and visit, I don't know, the state of Vermont in the fall because it's beautiful and guess what? All of a sudden you're going there. And they might be showering with you with words of affection as well, "I love you. You're so important to me." They tell you everything, like Rebecca said, that you want to hear, that makes you think that they have taken accountability and seen the error of their ways. But without them actually having to say that, right? So that's love bombing. Alyssa Scolari [19:41]: But then the other thing that I always see with narcissists is their attempt at isolation, right? So yes, also the comparison, but they will also do this thing where they will make you feel like you're alone in the world. And they might say very subtle things like, "Oh, did you see the weird way your friend was looking at you there?" Rebecca Christianson [20:06]: Yeah. Alyssa Scolari [20:06]: Right? "Did you see the way she rolled her eyes when you guys were talking? Do you really think she's a good friend?" When I was in a relationship with a narcissist, he would tell me time and time again, that my family hated me, that they hated me. And after a while, and he wouldn't sit me down and say, "Alyssa, your family hates you." But it was very subtle. It would be, "Huh? Are you sure you're okay with the way your mom said this?" And, "Are you sure you don't feel some kind of way about the way your dad said that." And, "Oh, well, I heard that your friend, so and so, said this about you." These very seemingly small things that suddenly, before you know it, have you feeling like you can't trust anyone else, but the narcissist. Rebecca Christianson [20:53]: Mm-hmm [affirmative]. Alyssa Scolari [20:54]: Do you agree with that? Did I explain that correctly? Rebecca Christianson [20:55]: I totally agree. Yes, I absolutely agree. They will... Until they're the only one that you trust, but they never, ever go, it's never going to actually be about you, it's always going to be about them. And the reason they do that is so that they don't have competition so that when you don't have anyone to say, "You know, he said or she said this to me." And for them to say, "That's gaslighting. They're gaslighting you." Or like, "That's not okay. They're breaking you down. You're not yourself." Rebecca Christianson [21:37]: Isolate you from everyone that can give you perspective, so that they are your only perspective, because they'll isolate you from anyone who can challenge them. Especially anyone whose smart enough to see what they're doing. Alyssa Scolari [21:54]: Yeah. Yeah, exactly. Rebecca Christianson [21:56]: Yep. I think that whenever... Another kind of hallmark I feel like I see a lot in people who come in and they're in a relationship with a narcissist is, they want to change. If you feel like you want to change or teach the person you're in a relationship with something, like about being a decent human, if you feel like they just don't understand how to treat people properly or be nice or kind, right? Sometimes people will say, "I just don't think that they understand." It always is a red flag to me. My ears always perk up and I start to listen because you shouldn't have to teach a normal person how to be decent and respect people. If you're in an adult relationship, you shouldn't have to, that's something that you teach toddlers. That's not something that you should teach an adult. Rebecca Christianson [22:54]: They should know that. That should be... So if you feel that way, be careful, because narcissists can't learn that. Alyssa Scolari [23:04]: Yes. Rebecca Christianson [23:04]: They do not get something from being inherently kind. If they're kind it's to feed their ego. It's to get something fed. It's not just about, it's never about the other person. So that's something else. It's like a hallmark in relationships when you feel like, "Oh, I just don't think they... They just don't understand how they come across." They know exactly how they come across and they're being an asshole to your friends because they don't want you to be in those friendships because those people are picking up on the fact that they're a narcissist. So it's all manipulation. Alyssa Scolari [23:41]: Absolutely. 1000%. 1000%. I think you make a really good point there. And I think before we wrap up with this Part One today, and we're going to get into more on the next episode about some differences between covert and an overt narcissists and what does narcissistic abuse look like in the victim? What are some of the longterm effects of that? What does treatment look like? We're going to talk about that in the next episode, but I also, before we close out, I really wanted to say that it's important for you guys to remember out there that this narcissism is defined by a pattern. Because you could take any one of these things in an isolated incident, and it might not necessarily mean somebody is a narcissist, right? Alyssa Scolari [24:27]: Like Rebecca said, we all have selfish tendencies. Being selfish isn't a bad thing at times, right? We all can be self-absorbed. So in an isolated incident, I don't want you to see this and then think immediately of this podcast and go, "Oh my gosh, this must be a narcissist." Because that's not necessarily the case. It is a pattern, a consistent pattern, so please keep that in mind. Alyssa Scolari [24:54]: And with that being said, I think, unless there's anything else you wanted to add today, Rebecca, I feel like this might be a good place to wrap up with this episode. And then... Rebecca Christianson [25:09]: I think that's great. I think that in our next episode, I want to touch a little bit on, this is something you and I talked about, the covert versus overt narcissist. I do think a lot of times, there are like closet narcissist and sometimes that gets missed and people are in unhealthy relationships. But we can definitely start with that, pick that up, next time. Rebecca Christianson [25:32]: And then start to talk about, there is some interesting characteristics that narcissists look for in people. I think sometimes victims of narcissists feel like there must be something wrong with them, but actually narcissists choose really intelligent victims. And they choose people who have really good qualities that are usually very intelligent. That'll also be a great topic to pick up with next time. Alyssa Scolari [25:58]: Perfect. So at that, I think we are going to wrap up and we will be back with the second part of this series next week. And if you are enjoying what you're hearing and you're enjoying the podcast, please do not forget to leave us a review. Reviews are incredibly important.

So how do you respond when someone who is not like you shows up at your church or your favorite local hang out? What goes through your mind? Thomas Christianson explores how our desire for unity can be mistaken for something completely different … and turn from desirable to destructive.
Could it be that the very thing championed as a hallmark of the Christian life could actually be the thing hat is causing divisions and walls among us? Is it possible that unity could be a bad thing? Could it cause more problems than it solves?

Can the brain repair itself? Can it regenerate after damage? Will there be a full recovery after a brain injury? I bring in a friend to talk about the latest advances in neuronal repair. In practice since 2001, Dr. Greg Eckel, co-founder of Nature's Cure clinic in Portland where he shares what he calls "Sarieah's gifts" with the world, has focused on chronic degenerative and neurodegenerative diseases for many years. Between the latest online fads and the crazy media headlines, it's easier more than ever to get confused about your health. If you want to make better decisions about your health so you can feel better and live longer, you've come to the right place. As a loving husband and clinician, he took a deep dive into medical research looking for cures to his wife's Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, a rare, chronic neurodegenerative condition with no known cure. While he didn't find a solution for Sarieah, the information he discovered and now uses in his clinic is showing promise for thousands of people. Key takeaways: [1:37] Introduction to Dr. Greg Eckel[2:24] Can the brain really regenerate?[6:11] What is the time frame for the brain to regenerate and what is the success rate?[7:20] VSEL's - Very Small Embryonic-Like Stem Cells[9:18] Main diseases' underlying categories for neurodegeneration - prion, auto-immune and traumatic brain injuries.[11:25] FAN-C approach - a framework that Dr. Eckel have created to evaluate, explore and develop a program for proper diagnosis.[12:43] How Dr. Eckel got into prionic activity.[14:00] Clinician's own grief as experience and inspiration to help people. [17:45] Getting your grief and emotions out.[24:27] What happens in the neurodegeneration FAN-C approach assessment?[25:15] Other causes of neurodegeneration[26:00] Why do proteins misfold? [26:50] The Braak's hypothesis of parkinson's disease[30:02] Homeodynamic regulation[32:14] Cellular regeneration - VSEL's[36:53] Hyperbaric oxygen - originally designed and developed for divers and helps heal the brain for regeneration.[39:41] Photobiomodulation - a light therapy using low level laser.[40:45] Acupuncture and Chinese medicine encourage proper blood flow and help the body and the brain heal.[42:56] Nature Cures Clinic and the Cloudhands and superbrain yoga videos.[43:35] Closing Topic references: https://naturecuresclinic.com/brain-regeneration/ https://poddtoppen.se/podcast/1339733591/the-spectrum-of-health-with-dr-christine-schaffner/the-future-is-brain-regeneration-dr-greg-eckel-with-dr-christine-schaffner https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/28243222/ https://sitn.hms.harvard.edu/flash/2010/issue65/ https://www.nigms.nih.gov/education/fact-sheets/Pages/regeneration.aspx For more details about Dr. Greg Eckel, visit his website www.naturecuresclinic.com or join his exercises, QI gong and Super Brain yoga through www.naturecuresclinic.com/qigong.

Do clients need to understand the process, terminology, and documents we're creating for them? Of course they do, and clients are much happier and less stressed when they understand what's going on. And, as a bonus, they appreciate us and the value what we bring to their situation. But how do we make it easier to explain and translate the specific info they need to know? Tiffany Christianson is a corporate law attorney who had clients who didn't always understand everything she did for them--getting clients educated to make better decisions wasn't always easy. So she created a tool for attorneys to explaining documents to clients by secured screen recordings--it's now available as DocuPlayer. Tiffany is an emerging expert on attorney-client communication, challenging attorneys to demystify the law for clients to make our advice more useful and the experience of practicing law more rewarding. We discuss how we can explain the primary pieces of our work in plain English to enable client understanding. We don't have to give a full legal education to take out the mystery for our clients. They just need to understand the nuts and bolts of the narrow slice of law that applies to their situation. This saves tons of time on both ends, clears up confusion for our clients, and leads to a happier, less-stressed client relationship.
