Changing your mindset as a leader is a magical gift. It allows you to manage yourself, and therefore, your team, with greater empathy. The beautiful truth about changing yourself is that some change can happen very quickly and it is always worth the investment. In today's episode, Dr. Camysha Wright and I talk about change as a leader. We discuss how empowering it is to make time for necessary changes, to refill your own tank so you aren't always depleted, and the value in investing in your own leadership and management skills. We also revisit a very powerful statement Dr. Wright made during a previous discussion, one that has stuck with me ever since: many things can actually be accomplished in a day. And this can  include changing yourself. As you listen to this episode, I hope this truth encourages you as much as it does me. “I think the biggest gift for me has been the change in mindset… learning how to deal with my own mind… managing your team is definitely very important but you also have to manage yourself… changing the way that I see things and how I analyze, like a problem, has been a huge gift…” – Dr. Camysha Wright What You'll Learn  Stepping into the ins and outs of business Empowering yourself to make time  Investing in your own leadership and management Expanding your mindset is a huge gift  Giving space for refilling your own tank Changing yourself in a day Meet Dr. Camysha Wright Dr. Camysha Wright is a Board Certified Ear, Nose and Throat Physician in Plantation, Florida and runs a full service clinic for children and adults.

Welcome to another episode of The Words Matter Podcast.So we are up to the 8th episode of the Clinical Reasoning Series and on today I'm speaking with Dr Nathalia Costa about clinical uncertainty. Nathalia is a Brazilian physiotherapist who completed PhD studies in Australia used mixed-methods to investigate the nature of low back pain flares (see here). This PhD work was won the Lumbar Spine Research Prize awarded by the Society for Study of the Lumbar Spine in 2021 (see Nathalia's other research here).Nathalia is currently working as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Universities of Queensland (UQ) and Sydney (USyd) investigating how both clinicians and people with low back pain navigate uncertainty during clinical encounters. And as such we speak about her work investigating uncertainty and talk around a paper, she and her colleagues published this year titled 'Uncertainty in low back pain care – insights from an ethnographic study', published in the journal Disability and Rehabilitation (see paper here) and a previous podcast on ethnography here with Dr Fiona Webster here).So on this episode we speak about: What uncertainty is and allude to the different ways and taxonomies used to describe it. Different sources of uncertainty and use the ambiguous nature of low back pain as an exemplar. The ways that we as clinicians might neglect uncertainty or attend to it. How we often seek to reduce uncertainty through the use of clinical reasoning or the application of evidence for examples through clinical guidelines. We talk about how an intolerance to uncertainty may prompt binary thinking and cause us to retreat to the comfort of the biomedical model and biomedical thinking. Occasions when we really do want to be certain as we can possibly be, and that there may be some ethical and therapeutic merit in communicating this to our patients. How uncertainty with low back pain is imbued with emotions – on both patient and clinician's part. How clinicians may emphasise uncertainty to patients, intentionally or unintentionally and the resulting impact that this might have on the balance of power within the relationship And we reflect on ways that clinicians better navigate uncertainty. So this was another brilliant conversation. Uncertainty, whether we like it or not surrounds and often defines our clinical work and is the omnipresent elephant in the clinical room and lives of our patients. Nathalia's work provides some crucial insights into the slippery and uncomfortable nature of clinical uncertainty which can allow us to reflect on how it make us and our patients feel and consider how we react in the face of it.As always, I have linked Nathalia's paper in the show notes, but please look out for a follow up paper which adopts a theory-driven post-qualitative approach to explore clinicians' experiences navigating uncertainty when working with patients with low back pain (see podcasts here on post-qualitative research here and here).Find Nathalia on Twitter @nathaliaccosta1Support the podcast and contribute via Patreon hereIf you liked the podcast, you'll love The Words Matter online course and mentoring to develop your clinical expertise  - ideal for all MSK therapists.Follow Words Matter on:Instagram @Wordsmatter_education @TheWordsMatterPodcastTwitter @WordsClinicalFacebook Words Matter - Improving Clinical CommunicationFind Nathalia on Twitter @nathaliaccosta1★ Support this podcast on Patreon ★

But this becomes difficult when the datasets include millions of genes, metabolites, or other biological factors. PhD candidate Nolan Newman is a computational biologist and uses networks to parse through these datasets and identify which interactions and relationships are important. Put simply - Nolan makes meaning out of chaos. In this episode we dive deep into what systems biology is, why networks are like spaghetti, and how a hearing loss incident prompted Nolan to pursue a career in science.Hosted by: Bryan & GraceCheck out the ID blog here: https://blogs.oregonstate.edu/inspiration/2022/05/15/spaghetti-networks-oodles-of-nodes/

Clinical trials are also underway applying microbiome transplants to intestinal diseases such as inflammatory bowel diseases, irritable bowel syndrome, and other diseases outside of the gut. Tom explains, "Tend is focused on two types of offerings. One is a device called the CAP device, a collection processing device that allows a clinician or a researcher to collect a sample and process it, mix it, filter it and encapsulate it into orally ingestible capsules that can be stored in a freezer." "The other side is the data side, which is understanding. So, doing microbiome analyses on the donors, on the recipient ill patients and seeing how their microbiome changes over time and learning who's the best donor for the best recipient.

New Efforts to Combat Diabetes and Stigma in Clinical Settings

The Leading Voices in Food

So there's much talk these days about weight stigma, in fact, we recorded a number of podcasts ourselves on the topic, and I believe it's very important, but this is our first podcast on another form of stigma. One that is powerful, often overlooked, and highly important to address. Our guests today are Matthew Garza and Nick Cuttriss. Matthew is Managing Editor at The diaTribe Foundation. And the dia in diaTribe derives from diabetes. The foundation's mission is to, and I'm quoting here, "to improve the lives of people with diabetes, prediabetes, "and obesity, and to advocate for action." I've served on an advisory board for diaTribe, and very much admire their work. Nicolas Cuttriss is a pediatric endocrinologist, and is founder of the ECHO Diabetes Action Network, and also has served on an advisory committee for the diaTribe Foundation. Matthew and Nick have been integral to a novel and welcome program on diabetes stigma that launched recently, that can be seen at the website, dstigmatize.org. Interview Summary   So Matthew, let's start with you. So can you explain what is diabetes stigma, and how does it relate to stereotypes around food and obesity?   Mathew – Absolutely. So in general, we know that stigma refers to the experiences of exclusion, rejection, prejudice, that blame and shame that people unfairly experience based on some characteristic or perceived difference. And in this case, that's diabetes. And this might look like negative attitudes towards people with diabetes. It might be hurtful or insensitive jokes made at their expense. And in some cases, it can even be outright discrimination. While there are many forms that diabetes stigma can take, such as being singled out for wearing a visible diabetes device, like a continuous glucose monitor for example, or an insulin pump, it could also be the stigma that's associated with having a chronic condition that does require, in some cases, daily medication. What we're seeing is that most of the research actually shows that the bulk of the stigma associated with diabetes stems from the misunderstanding that poor choices and unhealthy behaviors are the sole cause of this condition. And that people who have been diagnosed with diabetes somehow brought it on themselves. And this is attributed to both people with type 1 and type 2. And the stigma comes from lots of different sources. So it can be external from the media in shows or on the news. It can come from your friends and your family, from coworkers, healthcare professionals in a clinical setting. And sometimes it can even happen within the diabetes community. We often see that in defending themselves from the harmful stereotypes associated with diabetes, that people with type 1 can sometimes unintentionally redirect that stigma back onto people with type 2. And in regards to how this form of stigma specifically relates to food and obesity, it really goes back to what I was saying that unless you have diabetes or unless you know someone close to you that has diabetes, a lot of time, your only real knowledge of the condition is that it's connected to eating too much sugar, right? Or eating too much junk food, and that that somehow caused this. And a lot of times, it's associated with obesity or having excess weight. And then, on top of that, especially in America, we have this culture that there's this really problematic assumption that health is primarily a matter of individual responsibility. And this creates this stigmatizing narrative that blames people with diabetes for bad choices, and it sets up this us versus them. And it makes us treat people with diabetes differently because somehow they did this to themselves. But all of these beliefs oversimplify this really complex biological condition. And it overlooks all of those other, the systemic factors, such as environmental and socioeconomic context that people live in. Their access to healthy food options, to healthy grocery stores, for places to exercise. And so the more that we can kind of separate out diabetes from these misconceptions about food or sugar being its only cause, I think it's the better that we can support people and make sure that everyone is getting the care that they deserve.   Boy, have you painted a detailed picture of that and I appreciate it, and I can imagine that navigating this world of stigmatizing events must be especially difficult for children. But let me ask you, overall, what are the negative impacts of diabetes stigma?   Mathew - Absolutely, so there's so much research that I think still needs to be done to get a picture of the prevalence, the impacts, and the interventions that can address diabetes stigma. And thankfully, we've had some really great leaders in the field who have started to lay the groundwork to show all of this. And we see that diabetes stigma, and especially the language that we use to talk about diabetes has extremely negative effects. People with diabetes report feelings of fear, embarrassment, blame, anxiety, low self-esteem as a result of experiencing stigma. And this can translate into really harmful mental health conditions such as depression or higher levels of stress that drive unhealthy behaviors and can increase a person's risk for developing even greater health complications. You know, I know that Rebecca Puhl has touched on this a lot in her research on weight bias that we have this idea that potentially having this stigmatizing attitude will somehow motivate people. And in this case, motivate people with obesity or excess weight to improve their current habits. But actually, it has the opposite effect, and it causes things like harmful disordered eating or leading people to avoid physical activity altogether. And in the same vein, we see it happening with diabetes as well, that the stigma associated with the condition actually leads to worse self-care and worse diabetes management. So for example, we've talked to people, and seen in the research that they report injecting insulin only in public restrooms or at home, that they might choose to make an unhealthy food choice to avoid declining what is being offered to them. And even manipulating their glucose logs or lying about the management that they're doing just to avoid criticism from significant others or from healthcare professionals. And specifically, when the stigma is from healthcare professionals, it can actually inhibit people from seeking the necessary care that they need. One of the really concerning things that we've seen recently is that the research shows that people with diabetes fear being exposed for having diabetes or being labeled as disabled. And it discourages them from being open about their diagnosis in a way that is also influencing those who might be at risk, because it's acting as a barrier overall to awareness about the condition and to prevention. And it's increasing those feelings of isolation right after a diagnosis. And so the sheer breadth of all of these negative effects is why we believe that addressing diabetes stigma is such an essential missing element of effective diabetes care.   Well, in a very short time, you've mentioned a number of very troubling consequences, and you can see how these things would feed on each other and you'd have this cascade of negative effects that could really impact just about every part of a person's life. So Nick, let's turn to you. So research on both diabetes and weight stigma has shown that people often report feeling stigmatized in healthcare settings. So what experiences are common in these settings, and how can healthcare professionals advise people on the relevant issues like lifestyle change without making stigma worse?   Nick - So Matthew touched on it earlier in terms of stigma around when people are diagnosed with diabetes, they are blamed and shamed “that it's your fault.” But then, it's also perpetuated after diagnosis, and healthcare professionals putting blame and shame on patients for, quote, "being uncontrolled." And there's a marker, the A1C, which many healthcare professionals use. And we report EDIS rates in terms of quality improvement. And A1C less than 9% is how the health system separates out between people who are, quote, "controlled or uncontrolled." And the majority of people living with type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes have A1Cs that are greater than 7%, and they're not able to meet the targets. And so we, as healthcare professionals, need to become more explicit in working to overcome these implicit biases we label our patients as uncontrolled and perpetuating this stigma. A couple examples of what we can do in the healthcare professional setting is focusing on our language. And diaTribe has a great resource on their website, or you can look at the dstigmatize.org website to watch a couple video clips and really understand how language matters. So not labeling someone as diabetic, but they're a person living with diabetes before diabetic. They don't have good or bad blood sugar control. Their numbers are high, their numbers are low. Using descriptives, not saying, "Let's test someone's blood sugar," but checking someone's blood sugar. They're not on trial for their diabetes. And I think us as healthcare professionals need to realize when the majority of people living with diabetes aren't able to meet targets, it's not their fault. It's our fault. It's the delivery of healthcare that's failing, and it's not the patients who are failing. And we need to be more empathetic to them. And then, when it relates to obesity, similarly, when almost 50% of adults in the US are obese, and more than half are obese and overweight, we need to stop labeling them as obese and their fault when it's the majority of people who have this. I just had a colleague in the healthcare professional arena come to me last week, he said, "Nick, you know what? They put obesity on my diagnosis, I'm so upset." And this is someone who is trying to address their weight and get newer medications that help address the weight. But the healthcare professionals said, "No, you need to try more." So I think we need to change our approach of how we label our patients, and how we approach them with this blame and shame.   Well, and it's easy to see how people who feel stigmatized and have difficulty in the medical settings with the healthcare professionals they're interacting with would be more likely to avoid care, and that could exacerbate their condition. So let me ask this, do you see any signs that this issue is being addressed in the medical profession? Does it come up in med school training? Is it part of continuing education? Is it on the radar anywhere?   Nick - I wish it was more systematically. I think maybe at some institutions where there are champions for people living with diabetes, where a student might get a lecture, but unfortunately, I don't see it there. And I think that's what's so exciting about diaTribe dStigmatize initiative is really to get more broader reach and get the basics. So in medical school, we get into all these details in terms of cause of diabetes and medications. But I think if we could just back up on the humanistic level and know how to talk to people with chronic conditions, we'll train the next generation of leaders much more humanistically and have better outcomes if we can focus on the basics of how to interact with people living with chronic conditions, and getting rid of this blame.   It sure would be nice to see some of those things happen. So I'd like to ask a question of both of you. So it's clear that addressing diabetes stigma is a complex challenge. So what does diaTribe think needs to happen to begin combating this problem? And, Matthew, let's start with you.   Mathew - Thank you both so much for mentioning dStigmatize; that's what we're really excited about. We just launched this online resource that we hope is going to be the first step, because when we started to look at what is the landscape of resources out there for someone who wants to make sure that they are able to understand what the problem is and how to address it, there really was no centralized location. So what we wanted to do is bring resources together to make it a one-stop shop that anyone who wanted to learn about how to identify this form of stigma, why it might be harmful, or hear the real life stories from people with diabetes, about their condition, and about how stigma has affected them, that they would be able to do that in this one place. And we launched this resource primarily because we think that there's two very essential first steps that we need to take. And the first is that in order to address this public issue, we have to shift away from that really pervasive blame and shame mindset, right? So we want to reframe the way that people are thinking about diabetes, so that it's viewed as this complex, but manageable condition that nobody asks for. And not that it's somehow a failure of personal responsibility. So part of that has been that we've been really grateful that so many members of the diabetes community have been so open to sharing their stories because it's really helping us paint a picture of what diabetes actually looks like, and the ways that stigma affects people on a day-to-day basis. And then, the second part that our website really addresses is that language. And so leaders like Jane Dickinson, Susan Guzman, and Jane Speight have all been really key in making sure that language is seen as one of those tenets when it comes to addressing diabetes stigma, that the words that we're using to talk about diabetes currently lack that kind of awareness, and consideration, and even empathy at times. But because language matters and it has real impacts on the way that people with diabetes view themselves, how healthcare providers view people with diabetes, and how the general public views them, we wanted to create very specific language guidance directed at people who might write, or talk, or communicate about diabetes in some way, that encourages them to use words and phrases that are neutral, that are nonjudgmental. And at its very core, that are based on the facts, and actions, and physiology or biology that can actually help people, right? We want to get away from using all those terms that Nick was talking about like bad glucose levels or controlling their diabetes, because those just aren't actually factual when it comes down to it. Looking forward, dStigmatize is just the first step. We think that there's so many other initiatives aimed at getting more research funding to really explore this issue and its impacts. We think that there's the potential for media advocacy campaigns, similar to what GLAD did at the beginning of the LGBTQ Civil Rights Movements in addressing the negative representation of people who are LGBTQ in the media that a similar thing could be done because there's so many negative portrayals of diabetes and inaccurate portrayals in the media. And then, finally, the campaigns that influence the general public's attitudes towards diabetes. One of the key next steps might be influencing healthcare providers' interactions because like both of you said, we know that the research shows that this is a key area where people are experiencing stigma. And this is also a group that I think truly wants to make sure that their patients are feeling empathy, and that they're able to help them in any way that we can. And so I know that this actually is a very specific intervention that Nick has been doing a lot of work around and can speak to the importance of.   It's a very comprehensive effort you're discussing. So Nick, what would you like to add to that?   Nick – Yes, so, I'm a hyperspecialist in pediatric endocrinology, and there's just not enough adult endocrinologists or pediatric endocrinologists to care for people living with diabetes. And we just need to recognize that frontline healthcare professionals have more of an opportunity, more touch points to make a difference than a specialist like me. And we really must do everything to support frontline healthcare professionals in overcoming diabetes stigma. So as founding director of the ECHO Diabetes Action Network formed to combat system failures in our society in how we educate clinician and approaches to medical management for people with diabetes. And we're seeking to democratize diabetes specialty knowledge, so they can reach frontline healthcare professionals and power underserved populations living with diabetes. So an example of the efforts to target frontline healthcare professionals and improve care, we've launched a monthly educational series focusing on diabetes and disparities in the primary care setting. And then, the initial focus was attention to CKD and diabetes, and we're going to be moving focus areas moving forward. And we'll do a block on cardiometabolic issues, and obesity-related diabetes disparities. And then, also, we'll collaborate with diaTribe on launching one for addressing diabetes stigma and behavioral health, just to name a few. So for more information, feel free to visit echodiabetes.org, and join us for being a champion for people living with diabetes in the primary care setting.   Bios   Matthew Garza is the Managing Editor of DiaTribe.

Cocoa may enhance skeletal muscle function University of California at San Diego, May 3, 2022 A small clinical trial led by researchers at UC San Diego School of Medicine and VA San Diego Healthcare System (VASDHS) found that patients with advanced heart failure and type 2 diabetes showed improved mitochondrial structure after three months of treatment with epicatechin-enriched cocoa. Epicatechin is a flavonoid found in dark chocolate. The study published by the journal Clinical and Translational Science looked at profoundly ill patients with major damage to skeletal muscle mitochondria. The trial participants consumed dark chocolate bars and a beverage with a total epicatechin content of approximately 100 mg per day for three months. Biopsies of skeletal muscle were conducted before and after treatment. After the three-month treatment, the researchers looked at changes in mitochondria volume and the abundance of cristae, which are internal compartments of mitochondria that are necessary for efficient function of the mitochondria, and measurable by electron microscopy. After three months, we saw recovery – cristae numbers back toward normal levels, and increases in several molecular indicators involved in new mitochondria production.” Healthy habits may improve longevity, prevent Alzheimer's disease Rush University Medical Center, May 14, 2022 Everyday habits that serve as the backbone of a healthy lifestyle may keep your brain sharp and help you live longer, according to new research from aging experts at RUSH. A study recently published in the British Medical Journal found that people ages 65 and older who had a healthy lifestyle lived longer—3.1 years longer for women, 5.7 years longer for men—than their peers who didn't have the same healthy lifestyle. They also spent more of their remaining years without Alzheimer's disease. What constitutes a healthy lifestyle?Eating the Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurogenerative Delay (MIND) diet Staying engaged in cognitive activities like reading and puzzles Being physically active for at least 150 minutes a week Not smoking Limiting alcohol use (no more than one drink a day for women and two drinks a day for men) This latest study builds on ongoing research from RUSH showing that lifestyle factors can potentially reduce the risk for Alzheimer's disease and dementia by up to 60%, says Kumar Rajan, Ph.D., professor of epidemiology and director of the Rush Institute for Healthy Aging. Ozone treated water v. lethal microbial material   University of Alberta,  May 9, 2022 A University of Alberta research team has discovered that technology commonly used to decontaminate food industry equipment can also rid meat processing plants of lethal microbial material responsible for the human version of the ailment Mad Cow disease. U of A microbiology professors Mike Belosevic and Norm Neumann and engineering professor Mohamed Gamal El-Din demonstrated that infectious proteins found in the brain matter of cattle can be eradicated from water treated with ozone. The discovery could have applications in decontaminating wastewater in settings such as slaughterhouse effluents where infected neural material known as prions may be present. The ozone decontamination procedure can potentially be used to sterilize instruments used for neurosurgery, and prevent the transfer of infectious prions during surgical procedures. Prions are able to destroy and can still be infectious after being incinerated at heats of 850o C. In the wild, soil contaminated by a carcass of a deer that died of Chronic Wasting Disease can remain a source of infection for many years. The U of A research team's technique of using water treated with ozone to destroy prions is an improvement on current prion decontamination methods. Tai Chi Benefits Patients With Parkinson's Oregon Research Institute, May 13, 2022 Tai chi, an ancient martial art characterized by slow, flowing movement and meditation, helps improve balance and movement control for people with Parkinson's disease. The finding, published in The New England Journal of Medicine, is the latest study to show the benefits of tai chi for people with chronic health problems. Past studies have shown that tai chi reduces falls and depression among the elderly, and lessens pain for patients with arthritis and fibromyalgia. In the latest research, 195 people with movement and balance problems caused by Parkinson's disease were recruited from four Oregon cities. The patients were divided into three exercise classes that met for an hour a day, twice a week. One group took part in an extensive stretching class, another was taught resistance training, and the third group performed tai chi. After six months, patients in the tai chi group performed better on a number of measures related to strength, movement control, balance, stride length and reach. Resistance training also offered some benefits, and both the tai chi and resistance training groups had fewer falls than the stretching group. Vitamin B12 shows promise against ALS Tokushima University (Japan), May 13 2022.  An article appearing on May 9, 2022 in JAMA Neurology described a randomized trial in which men and women with the progressive neurologic disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) exhibited improvement in their condition after receiving a high dose of a form of vitamin B12 known as methylcobalamin.  Among the 126 patients who completed the trial, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Functional Rating Scale  scores declined by an average of 2.66 points for those who received the vitamin and by 4.63 in the placebo group—a difference of 43%. (Lower scores indicate increased severity of symptoms.)  This randomized clinical trial demonstrated that use of ultrahigh-dose methylcobalamin resulted in a 43% reduction in clinical deterioration as evaluated with the ALSFRS-R total score throughout the 16-week treatment period in the patients with early-stage ALS, Diabetes risk from sitting around University of Leicester (UK), May 12, 2022 A new study has found that women who stay seated for long periods of time every day are more prone to developing type 2 diabetes, but that a similar link wasn't found in men. Researchers from the University of Leicester Departments of Health Sciences and Cardiovascular Sciences revealed that women who are sedentary for most of the day were at a greater risk from exhibiting the early metabolic defects that act as a precursor to developing type 2 diabetes than people who tend to sit less. The team assessed over 500 men and women of the age of 40 or more about the amount of time spent sitting over the course of a week. It was found that the women who spent the longest time sitting had higher levels of insulin, as well as higher amounts of C-reactive protein and chemicals released by fatty tissue in the abdomen, leptin, and interleukin6, and which indicate problematic inflammation. This study provides important new evidence that higher levels of sitting time have a deleterious impact on insulin resistance and chronic low-grade inflammation in women but not men and that this effect is seen regardless of how much exercise is undertaken. This suggests that women who meet the national recommendations of 30 minutes of exercise a day may still be compromising their health if they are seated for the rest of the day.

Corporate America is not immune to the impact of domestic violence. With over 70 million women in the workforce and 1-in-4 women experiencing abuse in the home most workplaces in America employ someone living in an abusive relationship. In this episode, we discuss the need for a "coordinated corporate response" to domestic violence, one that includes organization-wide and cross-departmental engagement, employee training, and occupational safety in order to nimbly address the needs of employees who experience domestic violence. Ruth Guerreiro, Senior Director of Clinical Services at Genesis Women's Shelter & Support, and Effie Dennison, Executive Vice President, Director of Community Development and Corporate Responsibility for Texas Capital Bank join the conversation to expand on how corporations can be the catalyst for change when an employee turns to their employer for support. Ruth Guerreiro is the Senior Director of Clinical and Non-Residential Services at Genesis Women's Shelter & Support (GWSS).

She is EMDR certified, an EMDRIA Consultant, an LCSW licensing supervisor, and a CPT provider, in addition to providing expert testimony in court on behalf of survivors. Ms. Guerreiro has provided individual and group therapy to over 1,000 survivors.Effie Dennison is Executive Vice President, Director of Community Development and Corporate Responsibility for Texas Capital Bank (TCB) and is responsible for the bank's strategic investment and community relations activities across all TCB Texas markets.

In this special guest edition of The Psychology of Eating Podcast, Marc David interviews Dr. Eric Zielinski, author, aromatherapist, researcher, Biblical health educator, and founder of NaturalLivingFamily.com.    In their expansive interview, Dr. Zielinski offers a compelling look into the world of essential oils, and how they can serve as an important anchor in creating vibrant health. With a rich history extending back thousands of years, essential oils have an amazing ability to transform our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health.   As the foremost expert in America on essential oils, Dr. Zielinski's passion for natural living and essential oils began decades ago. Since then, his work has attracted millions of followers who share his belief in the healing properties of essential oils.   Show Highlights:   The use of essential oils goes back millenia, but were also used widely just before the advent of modern medicine when combat medics in World Wars I and II used them for their antibacterial properties. Oils like clove, oregano, lemongrass, and tea tree oil were the antibiotic equivalents at that time.    Essential oils are increasingly recognized in scientific research for their ability to fight infection, balance blood pressure, protect against cancer, alleviate anxiety and depression, and detoxify the body.    Modern manufactured products, whether detergents, deodorizers, aerosols, or sprays contain neurotoxins that have stunted our natural human sensory abilities to detect substances that are bad for our health. For this reason, it's vital to minimize our exposure to toxic products, as much as possible. Essential oils have a remarkable capability to retrain our sense of smell to more accurately detect noxious substances in our environment.    Dr. Zielinski emphasizes the important role of essential oils in getting people reconnected to the natural world, among others. He highlights the Japanese ancient healing art of Shinrin-yoku, or forest bathing, where one gets out in nature - preferably a densely wooded area, as another example. Simply by being outside, breathing in the volatile organic compounds from the living world, and stimulating every touch, we naturally improve our health and vitality.   Dr. Zielinski shares his background in Biblical health education, a field he is presently helping to develop. Biblical health recognizes our God-given right to an abundant life: spiritual, emotional, financial, and social.    -------------------------   For more on Dr. Zielinski, head to https://www.naturallivingfamily.com, or learn more about his bestselling book, The Healing Power of Essential Oils at https://go.naturallivingfamily.com/free-essential-oils-book/.   And for more about Marc David and The Institute for the Psychology of Eating, visit us at www.psychologyofeating.com.   #psychologyofeating #foodpsychology #ericzielinski #aromatherapist #aromatherapy #biblicalhealth #essentialoils #naturalhealing #pharmaindustry #plantchemistry #biblicalhealth #abundantlife

In this episode, Melissa Maisenbacher, a genetic counselor and associate director of clinical projects with Natera, joins us to continue the conversation about the benefits of non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT). Melissa shares details on what conditions NIPTs typically screen for, including microdeletions, such as 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22q11.2DS). She also highlights key 22q11.2DS findings from Natera's SMART study, the largest prospective NIPT study ever performed. Through her work with Natera, and as a board member of the International 22q Foundation, Melissa helps educate families about 22q11.2DS and connects parents to critical resources. One way she does this is through the annual 22q at the Zoo events which raise public awareness about the condition. Volunteers spread awareness at their local or regional zoo and distribute fact sheets to educate guests and zoo visitors about 22q11.2DS.
