In today's episode, we are going to be looking at how you deal with chronic pain, anxiety, awful periods, bad sleep, even when everything is “normal” and even when you've done all the tests and no one can figure out what's wrong with you. We are diving into the beginning of a new series over the next month or so where I dive into one of my client case studies. I'm going to be sharing what we did, what actions they took, what actually helped them, so that you can gain some real, actionable, tangible information from what we did with them, because some of what applied to them may apply to you. You will hear more about what a holistic process looks like so that you can have hope and you can actually see that there is something else available for you. Even just in the last few weeks, I have had two conversations with new clients where they ended our first session together and they said ‘oh my goodness. I have so much more hope now and I just feel like I'm not going to be stuck feeling awful' - So often we are so used to tolerating feeling rubbish. For example, if you've got low energy and IBS issues and you have that on a day-to-day basis, that becomes your normal. So, it's almost like we can't even imagine that changing and we don't even want to sometimes because it's too disappointing because we think that the change might not happen. So, I want to share these stories in this series with you because they're all really different people, at really different stages of their lives - ages, genders and health issues and they all realised that they don't want to keep feeling like this and that they do have more power than they realise. They came and worked with me and I've seen phenomenal shifts. All of these people also were hesitant about working with me from a cost perspective and all of them have said that it was totally worth the investment in terms of money and time. I know that I personally love to hear real life stories and it's also easy for you to listen to this podcast and think that it isn't going to work for you but if you can actually hear some totally different real people with real s**t going on in their lives and actually how they, without being perfect, without needing to do all the things they saw change and transformation. I know that this will give you hope! I also want to gently shake up your perspective on this. Things CAN change. This is your one precious, beautiful, glorious life and you deserve to feel good! Today I'l be talking about a client who was in chronic pain, had lots of anxiety, poor sleep, awful periods, lots of stress and just a lot going on. She deserves to feel good, you know? And she knew that she didn't always know that, but she became aware that this was her one life - She didn't want to be anxious, in pain and saying no to everything, not doing anything and having zero confidence. I want to just give a gentle Kezia-like shake, kick up the bum in a highly empathetic, understanding fashion. I really get how hard this is and I really hope that you feel my heart.

I'm joined by Stephanie Graves, a Functional Medicine Nutritionist, Physician's Assistant, and founder of The Functional Healer, a virtual functional nutrition practice specializing in helping high-performing women with anxiety, chronic stress, and burnout so they can restore their vitality. I've spoken a little bit before about my experience with adrenal fatigue, but on today's episode, Stephanie and I do a deep dive on the three stages of the condition and tools to overcome it. So many women find themselves feeling like the weight of the world is on their shoulders. There's often an overload of pressure to excel in your career while also being present in your home life. When Stephanie was struggling with chronic bloating and debilitating abdominal pain, she tried to brush it under the rug until she couldn't anymore. When she finally gave her body and mind the rest that it was signaling for, she was able to repair her sympathetic nervous system and re-evaluate the direction of her life. Stephanie explains the biological reasoning behind the ‘wired and tired' phenomenon and lists several markers that suggest someone is experiencing adrenal fatigue. We discuss how to decode the clues the body is sending us when we're in a state of chronic sympathetic activation and different treatment options.

Our parents represent our first, most powerful, and most primary relationship in life. We define ourselves by the ways in which we fit into their needs and definitions. As we get older and more awake, sometimes it is hard to continue to grow on our own without addressing the impact and fallout of these primary relationships. And also, of course, this begs the question of our OWN roles as parents. WE KNOW THAT OUR TMS IS RELATED TO THE RELATIONSHIPS IN OUR LIVES, AS WE ARE HUMAN ANIMALS - SOCIAL ANIMALS - AND NEED RELATIONSHIP TO SURVIVE. BUT WE ARE ALSO ALWAYS LOOKING INTO THE MIRROR OF RELATIONSHIP TO ASSESS OURSELVES, OUR WORTH, OUR VALUE, OUR GOODNESS.

Neuroscience Meets Social and Emotional Learning

The secret of being happy is accepting where you are in life and making the most out of every day…. Or is it? Is there a secret to happiness that we can uncover by looking into the chemicals in our brain? We will find this out today. Watch this interview on YouTube here https://youtu.be/6Sb8wAsvwQ8 On the episode we will explore: ✔  A deep dive into the four happy chemicals in our brain. ✔ How to move past old patterns, behaviors and stress response circuits in our brain, for new results. ✔ Healthy ways to increase our happiness neurotransmitters. ✔ Vicious cycles we should all be aware of, and ways to break these cycles. ✔ How to rewire a "low trust" brain and what we can learn from how monkeys build trust in others. Welcome back to The Neuroscience Meets Social and Emotional Learning Podcast, where we cover the science-based evidence behind social and emotional learning (for schools) and emotional intelligence training (in the workplace) with tools, ideas and strategies that we can all use for immediate results. I'm Andrea Samadi, and on today's episode #236, we have Loretta Breuning, the Founder of the Inner Mammal Institute,[i] Professor Emerita of Management at California State University and the author of  Habits of a Happy Brain[ii] and Status Games: Why We Play and How to Stop. Her work has appeared in The Wall Street Journal, Psychology Today, Real Simple and numerous podcasts. Loretta helps people to build their power over their mammalian brain chemistry, reminding us that “happiness comes from chemicals we've inherited from earlier mammals: dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin and endorphin levels. When you know how they work in animals, your ups and downs make sense. Our happy chemicals evolved to reward survival behaviors, not to make us feel good all the time. But you can feel good more often when you understand nature's operating system.” Let's meet Dr. Loretta Breuning and learn together, how to retrain our brain to boost our serotonin, dopamine, oxytocin and endorphin levels, for a happier and healthier life by understanding why these neurotransmitters are important for happiness to occur in the present moment of our lives. Welcome Loretta, thank you for coming on the podcast. We have been focused on our brain as it relates to learning, and when I saw your book, Habits of a Happy Brain I jumped to learn more about it, because who doesn't want to learn more about our brain chemistry, especially when it comes to retraining our brain for happiness. INTRO Q: Can we start with where your interest in this topic began? How did you go from being a University Professor, to writing books about our brain chemistry and connecting us back to our “inner mammal” and how our brain is wired for survival?  Q1: You mentioned something in another interview[iii], that I think is important for us to understand. You said “we are all wired by our early experiences because this is when we have the most neuroplasticity.” What should we all know about how our brains are wired, that makes us all unique, right down to the level of the neurons in our brain? Q1B: So, if we are to dive deeper into this, you know how we all have a trauma response, or when we are stressed, or experiencing overwhelm, we experience either fight (anger/irritability) flight (let's talk about something else and avoid all of this) freeze (unable to move and disassociate), or fawn (where you keep the peace as a people please to avoid conflict)…all of these reactions hard-wired from our early experiences. I'm sure each of us, if asked, could think about which trauma response we use predominately. Once we are aware of our stress response circuit, what do we do with that?  Is it enough to just pay attention to whatever it is that's causing a reaction and notice if it's really a threat to you, or if we can just move beyond it? Q2: When I think about happiness, I don't usually think about what's going on at the brain level (until reading your book).  I'm thinking, I want to move towards this, or I don't. This makes me feel good, or it doesn't. Do more of X, and less of Y. What's behind this feeling of happiness? What 4 chemicals are showing up in the brain, and what should we know about how these 4 brain chemicals work?  (Page 14) Q2B: To intentionally retrain our brain towards more happiness, is this a good formula? “look for the joy=dopamine, beware of masking my pain, it will be temporary (endorphins), look for those I trust (oxytocin) and keep an eye on my pride/desire for social importance with serotonin? Is this enough, or am I missing anything important? (Page 16) 2C: What are healthy ways to increase each neurotransmitter? Q3: How does our brain wire itself early in life, and how difficult is it to break old wiring/habits? Q4: What are some common vicious cycles we should be aware of? What is the solution to getting out of these cycles, or resisting habits that make you feel good in the moment, and then bad later? Q4B: What tools do you have for people who are struggling to break a habit? Q5: In Chapter 2, Meet Your Happy Chemicals, you say that “your dopamine circuits are built from your past experiences” and “that dopamine builds a neural template that helps you find your rewards” (page 36, Habits of a Happy Brain) all built from our life experiences, like the child who discovers a berry patch with their mother, triggering dopamine with the whole experience. What happens to the rush this person feels later in life, (eating berries, or other experiences that have been wired into the brain) and what should we understand about the ups and downs of dopamine? Q5B: How can we translate this understanding into our parenting? Q6: What about endorphin, that “masks pain for a short time” (Page 41) “that is only released if you push past your capacity to the point of distress” and allows you to move forward. We have recently addressed chronic pain[iv], with ways to retrain our brain using mindfulness and meditation, along with other strategies, but endorphin doesn't seem to be a long-term solution to pain management. How does it contribute to our happiness if it's a short-term solution to our pain? Q7: What is the connection between oxytocin and trust? If you were standing in front of someone who just feels off to you for some reason, what happens at your brain level? Is oxytocin ONLY secreted with trust? Q7B: You say that “our oxytocin pathways are built with life experience” (page 48) so would it make sense that if we have a hard time trusting in our past experiences that these neural pathways would lean towards mistrust with others until we had rewired a new pathway of trust? Q7C: How would you rewire a “low-trust' pattern in our brain? Q8: How can we recognize when serotonin is flowing in our brain as we seek that feeling of being important or being respected, and how do our past serotonin experiences create our present expectations?   Q9: What is your 45-day plan to rewire our brain towards happiness? How can we take all of this and make it applicable? Q10: Why does our brain create unhappiness? What's important with experiencing the contrast of happiness and it's opposite? Q11: Is there anything important that I have missed? Final Thoughts: Thank you Dr. Breuning for sharing your Habits of a Happy Brain and all of your research on this podcast.

The word "trigger" has become so ubiquitous in our society, it has lost its truest definition: a reaction to a current day stressor that reminds us so much of past trauma, we actually relive it. This is a slippery slope for maintaining loving relationships and feeling safe in the world. Triggers can be internal (sensations in our bodies) or external (reactions to situations), and both can lead us to act in ways that are not authentic to our growth and happiness. Let's talk about triggers, why they happen, and what you can do to be awake and aware to what's happening within you. This way, you create a pause between stimulus and reaction in your life.

“If you do not make time for your wellness, you be forced to make time for your illness.” Watch this interview on YouTube here https://youtu.be/3u2sCwB_mSg Welcome back to The Neuroscience Meets Social and Emotional Learning Podcast, where we cover the science-based evidence behind social and emotional learning (for schools) and emotional intelligence training (in the workplace) with tools, ideas and strategies that we can all use for immediate results. I'm Andrea Samadi, an author, and educator with a passion for learning specifically on the topics of health, wellbeing and productivity, and launched this podcast to share how important an understanding of our brain is to our everyday life and results--whether we are a teacher in the classroom, a student, or in the modern workplace. This month, you might have noticed that we are breaking into a new season on the podcast, Season 8, where we are focusing on brain health and learning with a look at how an understanding of our brain can have an immediate improvement on our life, as well as our future generations. If you have followed our past few episodes, you'll recall me mentioning our guest for today, Ashok Gupta, who is a well-known Neuroplasticity "brain retraining" expert who has spent the last 25 years researching the effects of the brain and the mind on illness. He suffered from a condition called ME, or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, around 25 years ago when he was studying at Cambridge University. Through neurological research that he conducted, he managed to get himself 100% better. He then set up a clinic to treat others, and published the well- known neuroplasticity “brain retraining” recovery program he created, known as the Gupta Program[i] in 2007. He has published several medical papers, interviews experts in the field himself, like his recent interview with Dr. Joe Mather, medical director of a well-known functional medicine clinic in England called the Ruscio (ru-show) Institute[ii],  and is continually researching these chronic conditions. Recently, a randomized controlled trial was published showing the Gupta Program (that Ashok created himself) was highly effective compared to a control. The program now is used to support people with a wide variety of chronic illnesses, (like Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and Fibromyalgia, among others that you can see listed on his website) and Ashok  Gupta is now on a mission to research and support people with chronic illness through this drug free and revolutionary, integrated and holistic approach. When I was first introduced to Ashok and his brain-training program I thought of all the people I know personally who have had the frustrating experience of going to the doctor for something they know feels “off” in their body (whether an illness, or pain from an accident or injury” and the doctor says “there's nothing physically wrong with them” and sends them off with a prescription for something (anti-anxiety medicine, or an anti-depressant) which doesn't work, because it doesn't come close to addressing the root cause. If you've ever wondered why our body seems to hold onto an old injury, or what's at the root of chronic disease like fibromyalgia, that causes years of frustration, lack of focus in the workplace and decreased productivity, there is a solution, and the answer shockingly comes with an understanding of our brain. Let's meet Ashok Gupta, and see how neuroscience is connected to chronic pain, and illness, and what he has seen from thousands of his patients around the world who use The Gupta Program. Welcome Ashok, thank you for coming on the podcast to share the years of research you have done in the field of chronic pain and illness. What part of the UK have we reached you today? INTRO Q:  To begin, I want to start from the beginning of your story because it really is incredible to see what you have built. I have watched some of your recent podcasts that people can access in the show notes[iii] and everything you share in all your interviews I find fascinating, and even ground-breaking. Can you share where this all started for you beginning with your own illness?   Q1: Ashok, the whole reason we launched this podcast, was to connect the brain to learning, and I heard you say it yourself that “most medicine is based on what's measureable, and what is measureable is in the body. But the brain is a black box.” Without looking at the brain with fMRI scans, we just don't know what's happening (in medicine and with learning/education). How did you first think to look at the brain with chronic illness that led you to your hypothesis that I will let you share and explain?   How did you come to discover or hypothesize that in the case of chronic pain or illness that “maybe the brain is creating an artificial environment in the body because it's overprotecting the system to ensure its survival” explaining why we feel pain or discomfort that doctors say isn't there? 1B: We've all had an injury or something where the pain just never seems to go away or neck pain I've always had, if I came to see you about it, would you say that it's a conditioned, or learned response? Perhaps tied to my posture at my desk, by not sitting up straight—what's happening in this case? Why would the pain from an injury a long time ago still remain in my neck years later?  How does my brain create the inflammation/irritation I feel and how does it create a viscous loop building up more inflammation and pain in the body? 1C: What about hypnotherapy for pain reduction? With everything you have learned studying the brain and pain, why do some people respond really well to this type of therapy, while visits to the chiropractor seem to have very little impact on long-term pain relief? 1D: Has modern medicine caught up with brain retraining as a viable solution for chronic pain or disease? Q2: When you discovered how the brain, specifically the amygdala and insula were connected to chronic pain and disease, what happened next? You obviously knew how it helped you with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, but what about Long-Haul Covid, Fibromyalgia, Chemical or Mold Sensitivities, Gut Issues, Anxiety, Lyme Disease? There's at least 12 conditions listed on your website and more listed in the Member's Area. Is the solution to finding relief with all of these chronic diseases held within the amygdala and insula of our brain? 2B: Is emotional pain the same as physical pain? 2C: For people who want to learn more about your hypothesis, as well as your published medical papers, clinical study and new randomized control trial, they can read those on your website.[iv] How important was it for you that you were the FIRST original neuroplasticity or brain retraining program with over 20 years of experience? How has this helped you to pave the way in the brain-retraining industry? Q3: Let's talk about the Gupta Program that you developed. I signed up for your 28-day free trail[v] to see what your program offered, and I was impressed from the start. The FREE Trial gives you access to the first 3/15 sessions. Like you, I'm a course creator, and my earlier courses began on DVD (in the olden days) so I'm picky when it comes to online courses, with the eye from the creator point of view, and you have done an incredible job with your online program. How did you create such beautiful videos? Were you actually shooting in the mountains somewhere? Your program is definitely easy to use which does help new users looking for answers! (I'm guessing it's on the Kajabi Platform?) 3B: I've just started the program, and have completed the first session out of 8. (Are there 8 session or 15?) I love it so far.  Will the brain retraining in the Gupta Program  help people like me with chronic pain, or is it just for the conditions we listed above? Q4: What are the results that people are seeing using your program? I did watch the video testimonials that you have listed on your website[vi]. They are impressive! There's a lot of success with Chronic Fatigue, and I also watched your interview with Dr. Joe Mather and his mold exposure story. When people aren't feeling well, what would be your recommendation? To use your brain-retraining program in conjunction with working with a medical doctor? What's the best way to use your program? Where would people begin? Q5: What's next for you? Q6: Is there anything important about your work that we have missed? Q7: How did you learn to navigate your way through scientific articles on Pubmed? For people to learn more about the Gupta Program, they can go to your website and like me, sign up for a free trial https://www.guptaprogram.com/free-trial/ They can also follow you: FOLLOW DR. ASHOK GUPTA Facebook https://www.facebook.com/guptaprogram Twitter https://twitter.com/AshokGuptaTV Ashok, Thank you very much for sharing your phenomenal program with us today.

Peripheral neuropathy is the result of damage to the nerves located outside of the brain and the spinal cord. People who have this condition typically suffer from persistent long-term pain as well as other symptoms. There is no shortage of conventional treatments for neuropathy, but these do not address the condition at its root. Over the years, integrative approaches have become more popular in treating both diabetic and chemo-induced neuropathy, and there is a strong evidence base to back their use.  Heather Carlyle, PT, DPT, FIPSI, specializes in using integrative and lifestyle medicine in her physical therapy practice. Heather has a passion for helping people improve their quality of life in a natural way. She created Path to Less Nerve Pain , a hybrid online health education program that she developed to treat and reverse neuropathy. In this conversation with Dr. Joe Tatta, Heather discusses the different components of her program. She also talks about the causes of neuropathy, its symptoms, and the various traditional, complementary alternative and integrative medicine approaches that can be used for its treatment.

So many of you are speaking to me about the same thing - you just don't know it. It might look like it appears as resistance to doing the work, fear of not doing the work, or shame about the places you are falling short, but the genesis is the same: That pesky voice in our heads that is informed by old ideas and past trauma. The voice tells us, "You can't. You don't follow through. There's not enough time. You're failing. You should be worried, stressed... panicked!" We must learn to interpret its rantings. The voice in your head is not the absolute truth. The reason its message is tricky is because we are used to trusting it - it is OUR OWN. It contains truth of course, but we need to pause and examine what's really going on to find our way to the solution. Today on the pod we hear and reference several of your Speakpipe messages around this voice, and the ways in which it may be keeping you stuck. Once we shed light on the Nervous System's role in all this and the ways you can shift your mindset, there is so much room for growth and healing. Join us! XOOX n.

Neuroscience Meets Social and Emotional Learning
Brain Fact Friday: PART 2 on ”Chronic Pain and the Brain: It IS All in Your Head”

Neuroscience Meets Social and Emotional Learning

Welcome back to The Neuroscience Meets Social and Emotional Learning Podcast, where we cover the science-based evidence behind social and emotional learning (for schools) and emotional intelligence training (in the workplace) with tools, ideas and strategies that we can all use for increased results. I'm Andrea Samadi, an author, and educator with a passion for learning specifically on the topics of health, wellbeing and productivity, and launched this podcast to share how important an understanding of our brain is for our everyday life and results--whether we are a teacher in the classroom, or in the modern workplace. For today's EPISODE #232 and Brain Fact Friday, I wanted to stay on the theme of chronic pain and disease as we prepare to speak with Dr. Ashok Gupta[i] next week, a well-known Neuroplasticity "brain retraining" expert who has spent the last 25 years researching the effects of the brain and the mind on chronic pain and illness. I have so many questions for him, and hope you will tune into this next episode where I know he will answer everything, and give us all a solid plan for how to move forward to live healthier, more productive lives with our brain in mind. After posting last week's Brain Fact Friday, where we looked at chronic pain and the brain, asking “is it all in our head” I received many messages, including one from cognitive neuroscience researcher John Harmon, from EPISODE #170[ii] who added to our post on LinkedIn, saying that “most neuroscientists who study pain say it IS in the brain. And beliefs about bodily pain -- such as "I think this treatment will reduce my pain" -- are (obviously) in the brain also. There is a very real physical connection between pain perception and one's beliefs, emotion, attitudes and the rest of the mind.” He sums this all up saying, “If the mind (including pain and thoughts and beliefs about it) = a set of functional neural networks, it's easy to see how the mind can either amplify, or dampen, pain -- via the two sets of FNNs (functional neural networks) either amplifying, or working to dampen, one another.” This shows me something I've thought about for years—that it does matter what we think about. Which brings me to this week's Brain Fact Friday. DID YOU KNOW THAT “Negative thoughts cause your brain to immediately release chemicals that affect every cell in your body, making you feel bad; while the opposite is also true—positive, happy, hopeful thoughts release chemicals that make you feel good. Your thought patterns can also have long-term effects. Repetitive negative thinking may promote the buildup of the harmful deposits seen in the brains of people with Alzheimer's disease and may increase the risk of dementia, according to a 2020 brain imaging study in Alzheimer's & Dementia.”[iii] (Dr. Amen, Your Brain is Always Listening. In the world famous physician Dr. Daniel Amen's recent book that he published in the middle of the Global Pandemic, Your Brain is Always Listening, he affirms that it's not just the thoughts we are thinking about our health and wellness that are damaging for us, but how we think about everything that we do. If Your Brain is Always Listening,[iv] it makes sense to me that it's fed positive thoughts about our mental AND physical health just like what John Harmon said about “the real connection between pain perception and one's beliefs, emotion, attitudes and the rest of the mind.” This is one reason why I don't like sarcasm. I don't think it's funny at all to poke fun of yourself or another person for anything. I'm pretty serious about this, as it just hits a chord with me. If I ever hear someone putting themselves down in any way, I'll mention it and say something like “well that's not true” hoping it will switch that person's mind from this practice that I didn't realize until writing this episode could contribute to the risk of this person developing dementia later in life. It's important what we think about whether it's in relation to that nagging pain we feel in our body, or those automatic negative thoughts that Dr. Amen writes about in his book, Your Brain is Always Listening. Julia Gover's TED Talk on Pain and the Brain that we mentioned in last week's Brain Fact Friday explains the science behind this concept when she said that “pain is an output of our brain, not an input from our body” and that our brain “takes cues from our mood (and the level of stress hormones in your blood) from your environment (sight, sounds and smells), from your memory (to see if you've been in this situation before) and it will also take into account your own personal beliefs about your health and your body. Then it takes all of this into consideration and asks—do I need to protect myself. If the brain thinks there's a threat, it will produce the experience of pain to protect you.”[v] REVIEW To review this week's Brain Fact Friday, DID YOU KNOW that “negative thoughts cause your brain to immediately release chemicals that affect every cell in your body, making you feel bad; while the opposite is also true—positive, happy, hopeful thoughts release chemicals that make you feel good. It's important more than ever that we find strategies to keep our thoughts positive, and eliminate negative thought cycles.  If you find yourself waking up and not feeling happy, for your physical and mental health, I think it's of high importance to look for ways that you can switch this. IDEAS FOR KEEPING OUR THOUGHTS POSITIVE TIP 1: I covered one way that I've kept a positive mindset, while at the same time boosted mental clarity and focus, with EPISODE #231[vi] on my “Update on the Fisher Wallace Brain Stimulator” that increases serotonin and melatonin, while decreasing that stress hormone cortisol. Check out this episode that covers my results with using this wearable medical device designed to combat insomnia, anxiety and depression. TIP 2: You could also read Dr. Amen's book Your Brain is Always Listening where he talks about our “hidden dragons” that we can uncover for solutions to controlling our happiness and changing hard-wired habits in the brain. IMAGE CREDIT: Dr. Daniel Amen's Presentation on "Your Brain is Always Listening" Published on Youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=unHhPdefYIU&t=547s TIP 3: Work it out with exercise that Dr. Amen says solves most mental and physical problems. Whatever you decide to do to keep your thoughts positive, remember: I'll see you next week as we dive into Dr. Gupta's discoveries about chronic pain and illness and how the thoughts we think about really do matter. Have a wonderful weekend.
