I'm excited to introduce this week's guest, Tori Joy Geiger. Tori has experienced chronic illness from birth, and that has affected her ability to be an athlete and have outdoor adventures—but it hasn't stopped her at all. She's learned how to work with her body so she can have the experiences she wants, at her own pace and in her own way. This was such a delightful conversation. Tori has done loads of mindset work and has gone on a journey of self-knowledge, and everything she has done has gotten her to a place where she can do the things she wants in a way that works for her. Whether you have a chronic illness or other life challenges, I know you'll get something out of this episode.   About Tori Tori is a congenital heart defect survivor and has undergone multiple open-heart surgeries and procedures throughout her life. Growing up, she was an avid athlete, participating in volleyball, basketball, and track in high school. She went on to play volleyball at Corban University and later join the track team at George Fox University as a high jumper. With a heart for others affected by chronic illnesses such as CHD, Tori started a lifestyle blog where she shares lifestyle and chronic illness tips. Part of her mission is to have a “heart that beats for others,” and to help other chronic illness warriors achieve a life of fulfillment and impact. Tori does this through her 50/50 CHD Promise; 50% of her blogging commissions are donated to CHD organizations.

Christine Rich is an award-winning marketing executive, retired spin instructor, speaker, mentor, mama, advocate, and author.She is passionate about raising awareness about the intersection of chronic illness and mental health and advocating for better support for patients and physicians.She serves on the board of directors of the Northeast Ohio Crohn's & Colitis Foundation, is a support group facilitator and also volunteers on the national Crohn's & Colitis Foundation's Patient Advisory Task Force.Imagine the collective power if every person with a chronic illness spoke candidly about how mental and emotional health affects their physical symptoms.I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease at a young age and spent many years trying to hide from and deny the fear, anger, and sadness I felt because of my illness. I recently published a book called "Chronic" about how a serious health scare in my late twenties caused me to reevaluate and change her focus to wellness and self-love rather than illness and fear.Through raw and personal stories and insights, I share my journey of living with and befriending my less-than-glamorous, often times invisible, chronic illness called Crohn's disease.These insights include:How women insist they're “fine” even when they aren't.Why physicians should consistently discuss mental health with their patients.What the power of radical acceptance and self-love can provide.Chronic encourages readers to shift their perspective of chronic illness from one of shame or fear to one of acceptance and love. Throughout her book, I give readers reasons to feel empowered and to know they are not alone.Connect with Christine:Instagram: @christinerich_authorWebsite: www.christinemrich.comAmazon: https://www.amazon.com/Chronic-Christine-M-Rich/dp/1636764827/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=chronic+christine+rich&qid=1633886322&sr=8-1________________________This Episode is sponsored by: That's why the BC Schizophrenia Society has launched a brand new podcast, called Look Again, Mental Illness Re-examined.

Today, I am delighted and honored to be talking to Dr. Philip Ovadia. He is a board-certified Cardiac Thoracic Surgeon and Founder of Ovadia Heart Health. His mission is to help people stay off his operating table by optimizing their metabolic health to lower the risk of heart disease and other chronic illnesses.   In this episode, we take a deep dive into clinical medicine. We explain how it is possible to reverse conditions like high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes and become healthy without taking any medications. Dr. Ovadia defines metabolic health, talks about his journey from being morbidly obese to losing more than 100 pounds, discusses Gary Taubes's influence on his health journey, and his seven principles for health and wellness. We also get into metabolic health markers, the hyper-palatability of processed food, metabolic syndrome, and the metabolic inflexibility of most Americans.  Dr. Ovadia's approach to nutrition is all about bio-individuality and having enough protein in your diet to ensure satiety. I really enjoy connecting with other western medicine-trained health care professionals who have pivoted towards optimizing metabolic health and flexibility! Stay tuned for more!  IN THIS EPISODE YOU WILL LEARN: Problems that exist within the medical system. Dr. Ovadia shares his health journey and talks about his mission. Why much of Dr. Ovadia's current education is coming from non-physicians. Dr. Ovadia talks about metabolic health. The physical effects of eating hyper-palatable processed foods versus eating nutrient-dense whole foods. Take control of what you eat rather than letting food control you. What metabolic syndrome is all about. The benefits of using a continuous glucose monitor. Why no one diet will serve everyone. Using metabolic health as a system to guide you to good health. The benefits of pushing for nutrient density to feel satiated. Bio: Dr. Philip Ovadia is a board-certified Cardiac Surgeon and founder of Ovadia Heart Health. His mission is to optimize the public's metabolic health and help people stay off his operating table. As a heart surgeon who used to be morbidly obese, Dr. Ovadia has seen firsthand the failures of mainstream diets and medicine. He realized that what helped him lose over 100 pounds was the same solution that could have prevented most of the thousands of open-heart surgeries he has performed—metabolic health. In Stay off My Operating Table: A Heart Surgeon's Metabolic Health Guide to Lose Weight, Prevent Disease, and Feel Your Best Every Day, Dr. Ovadia shares the complete metabolic health system to prevent disease. Dr. Ovadia grew up in New York and graduated from the accelerated Pre-Med/Med program at the Pennsylvania State University and Jefferson Medical College. This was followed by a residency in General Surgery at the University of Medicine and Dentistry in New Jersey and a Fellowship in Cardiothoracic Surgery at Tufts-New England Medical School.

“It is not the experience of loss that becomes the defining moment of our lives, but how we respond to loss that matters.”Loss came suddenly for Jerry Sittser. In an instant, a tragic car accident claimed three generations of his family: his mother, his wife of 20 years, and his four-year-old daughter. Left as a single father to care for his three surviving children, Jerry was nearly overcome by the tremendous weight of grief. While most of us will probably not experience such a catastrophic loss in our lifetime, we will all face some sort of loss. Whether in the form of disability, chronic illness, crushing disappointment, or the death of a loved one, the experience of loss is universal. Jerry is joining Crystal to help put words around sorrow and offer hope for growing with grief. If you are wondering if you will ever heal or what God's plan is in the depth of your pain, be encouraged by this conversation.

Melissa is working to change that.

For decades, the portrayal of cancer in movies and television was grim. If a character was diagnosed with cancer, it was a near certainty they'd be dead by the credits. But, like cancer treatment itself, Hollywood evolved, and many storylines about cancer became stories of survival. In this episode, we ask the question, "Who influences us and why?" From musicians to television stars, film producers to televised cancer screenings, when celebrities lend their voices to raising awareness and fundraising, that kind of star power can move mountains.

Chronic illnesses are a long and sometimes painful journey. You require ongoing medical care and doing the things you need to do every day is cumbersome. These chronic conditions can be difficult for many doctors to resolve because they attempt to use drugs as treatment, which only masks the symptoms, and doesn't get to the root of the problem.  In today's episode, Dr. Christine Schaffner talks with Dr. John Lieurance about innovative solutions for those struggling with chronic illness, especially supplementing with high-dose melatonin, and methylene blue along with its benefits and features. Additionally, they discuss his personal journey with chronic illness during his life.     Dr. John is the chief scientific advisor for MitoZen Scientific and heads up Advanced Rejuvenation, a multi-disciplinary clinic with a focus on treating chronic diseases, regenerative medicine (Prolotherapy & Stem Cell therapy using high def ultrasound), functional neurology, and functional medicine.  Dr. Lieurance has spent most of his career focused on finding solutions to the core causes of disease and how to support healing through natural methods. Some of the conditions he often sees clinically include: degenerative neurological disorders such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's, autoimmune disease, chronic Lyme, biotoxin illness, CIRS, and mold illness. He has suffered from chronic Lyme and mold illness himself for many years before he uncovered the secret to recovery.  To get the full version of the show notes - please visit http://www.drchristineschaffner.com/Episode120

#118: Crash Landing and Being Forced to Restart Your Business, with Danna Lorch

Today's guest is Danna Lorch from Brookline, Massachusetts. Danna has been a freelance writer for 11 years, mostly focusing on journalism. She has covered the visual arts, design, architecture, the trades and parenting. She has written for The New York Times, The Washington Post, Architectural Digest and many other publications. Before becoming a writer, she managed nonprofits in the Middle East and Africa. Then, she covered the emerging art scene in the United Arab Emirates for seven years before “crash landing” back in the U.S. for health reasons, with her husband and young son. Most recently, Danna pivoted to working for higher education clients and now does about 30% journalism, 70% higher ed. About four years ago, Danna's husband became really sick and they had to quickly leave their home in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, to move to the U.S. so he could get the treatment he needed. (He is now stable but with some lingering health issues.) Soon after, Danna discovered she had an autoimmune disorder. All of this has led her to restart her freelance business five times. The current iteration, which she restarted after the pandemic affected her business, has been her most successful. In the past, she's felt embarrassed to talk about the need to stop and start her freelance journey, especially with so many people sharing their successes on social media. But now, she's very public about how her personal challenges have affected her business. After landing an essay in The New York Times after the pandemic hit in 2020, she aimed for several more prestigious bylines to build a strong portfolio. Then, she used that to pivot to higher education. She used the articles she'd written about design, art and architecture as a “bridge” to focus on higher ed clients that have strong niches in those areas. Danna shifted her mindset to thinking of herself as a business owner. She set values and goals for her business. Now she values finding recurring, reliable work and working with kind clients. She would like her work to be meaningful. And if it can't be meaningful, it has to pay well. Danna's imposter syndrome is often high. She's had a lot of challenges and taken adventurous leaps and says “when you live your life like that, it's pretty hard not to sometimes question yourself and feel incompetent.” Imposter syndrome as a freelancer pops up when people ask, “Oh, are you still writing?” as if it's a hobby. Danna is also the mom of a young child and says people don't take “mom businesses” as seriously.  She was also scared to share some of her personal challenges because she didn't want to be seen as unreliable. Danna also talks about needing to set boundaries, which she didn't do in business much before having a child. Now, she sets boundaries as a mom, as an observant Jew and as someone managing an autoimmune disease. She recommends a “tech Sabbath” for everyone!   Biz Bite: Send Handwritten Thank You Notes   Resources: Episode #45 of Deliberate Freelancer: You Need to Set Boundaries Episode #14 of Deliberate Freelancer: Freelancing with a Chronic Illness, with Christy Batta Episode #67 of Deliberate Freelancer: How to Fight Imposter Syndrome, with Kristen Hicks www.dannalorch.com Danna on LinkedIn Danna on Twitter Danna on Instagram Writers' Co-op podcast SCORE.org and free business coaching Y Combinator Startup School
