Scripture of the Day:   Luke 17:20“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those that will believe in me through their message.”God's Word is the ONLY Truth Yesterday, we talked about praising God in the face of negative talk about you being to sick to get better. We discussed that, if you truly believed God's Word, you would rejoice! Because either God is the only one who will get your praise when you are healed HERE – or He will be the only one to get your praise when you are in His Presence THERE. Praise God… I have had my times of what could be called “miraculous healing” myself. I've had them happen for several people that I have prayed for. I've witnessed numerous others as other men and women of God have prayed for people. This is real, folks. Those naysayers that refuse to acknowledge that Jesus is the Great Physician are only doing so because they do not have the Faith to believe. I've received healing myself, from colds to severe injuries. I remember several years back I was participating in officiating football games. I still do today, but this was several years ago and I was new to the experience. Anyway, I made a mistake in my positioning and ended up getting taken out by a several 200 plus pound football players making a tackle. I got back up, I stayed on the field and finished the game, but I was hurt and I knew it. I prayed – and got through the game. When I finally drove home, I could barely walk. My left leg was hurt and hurt bad. I knew it. The next day was even worse. Thank God I had a week until my next scheduled game. I prayed and stood in Faith. Literally – stood – in faith.  The next weekend, I went back out. I was hobbling, but able to function. I could not run as fast as I had, but I was able to do my job and get through the game. Then the next and the next, etc. A about two years ago, I was having problems with my right knee.  This was from an on the job injury I suffered many, many years ago as a police officer. And my doctor decided to get an x-ray. They took an x-ray of both legs. When I returned to the doctor for the results, he asked me, “When did you break your leg?” “Excuse me? I've never broken my leg,” I replied. “Yes you did. It was a pretty good break, too. But it was reset and has calcified over. The reason I asked is because you did not put that down as a prior injury.” I told the doctor, I do not know when that could've happened. He said that, from the x-ray, it had been about three years or so from what he could tell. But, as I was thinking about it, the ONLY time that could've been the case is with that football game. That is the only time something like that would've happened. I did not go to the doctor. I PRAYED. I did not go the ER. I went to God's Word. I knew what the Word said about healing. Was it instantaneous? As far as I was concerned, No. I mean it took me several weeks, maybe even a couple of months to run and everything like before. But was it instantaneous? According to the doctor, it must've been. He said it had been reset! Amen! I prayed, Jesus answered – and I went about doing my normal business and activities. It was not until several years later that I found out what actually happened to me that night. Praise God. That is just one example. I knew “something” was wrong – and prayed for healing. I knew I had been healed – I just did not know to what extent until this doctor asked me “when I had broken my leg?”  Praise God. But that is what I'm talking about. I believed God's Word. I believed God's Word was TRUE and I stood, literally, on God's Word. And I received my healing. Now, if you would've asked someone who seen me walking or attempting to run on the sidelines a week or two weeks or even three weeks later, they would say I was not healed. If you had asked me and I told you how I felt, I would say I was not healed. But I was standing in God's Promises and I said, “By His stripes, I WAS...

Bible Reading: Matthew 24:36-44"This vacation has been a blast," said Isaac as he and his dad walked down a narrow alley in a historic town, licking their ice cream cones. A minute later, Isaac pointed to a window overhead. "Dad! Look!" Dad looked up. An orange cat sat on the window sill, one paw hanging out. It seemed to take no notice of them but continued to stare out the open window. "What is it staring at, I wonder?" Dad murmured. Isaac shrugged, and they continued their walk. On the way back to their hotel, they passed the same building and found the cat still staring out the window. "That cat looks like it's waiting for something to happen," Isaac remarked. Dad nodded, and they watched the cat in silence for a few moments. "Excuse me!" said a voice behind them. They got out of the way as a boy on a bike rolled past and parked under the open window. The cat gave a loud meow and, to their shock, jumped down.The boy grinned and got off his bike. He picked up the cat, which continued to meow loudly. As the boy petted it, the meows fell into quiet purring.Isaac and Dad continued on their way, but Isaac kept thinking of the cat. "Sothat cat was just waiting for its owner to get back?" he asked.Dad nodded. "It obviously loves him and was watching for him to return." He paused, then added, "It reminds me that the Bible tells us to watch and wait. Jesus is coming back again, and He wants us to be on the lookout for Him.""Oh yeah!" Isaac said. "But that doesn't mean we should just sit around and wait like that cat did, does it?" "No," Dad said. "We need to point others to Jesus as we wait for Him to come again. Sadly, not everyone knows Jesus as their Savior. His return will not be a happy time for those who haven't put their trust in Him. We need to tell people Jesus loves them and that He died and rose again to save them so they can be ready for His return too."-Matthew WellsHow About You?Are you watching and waiting for Jesus to come again? He is coming to make everything new so all those who trust in Him can live with Him forever! Are you ready? Prepare for His return by trusting Him as your Savior. Then, as you watch and wait, help others know how they can be ready for His return too.Today's Key Verse:Be ready, for the Son of Man [Jesus] is coming at an hour you do not expect. (NKJV) (Matthew 24:44)Today's Key Thought:Watch for Jesus to return

Thank you so much for being on with us.   Dr. Linda  01:55 Oh, thank you for having me on. I was just been so excited to chat with you. You both just have just you're full of just life and just I love your personalities. Do I go when I lived in the south for a little bit like in South Carolina. I lived in North Carolina and Tennessee. And then it's like you start talking like y'all and thank you ma'am. And this is Southern girl coming out. Oh   Terry  02:22 my gosh, I would have been backhanded if I didn't say ma'am or sir. I still say it and people get offended now. It's like whoops, I'm don't mean to offend you. But   Roy Barker  02:31 it's funny because I spent some time in the northeast and you know, I always said thank, you know, like a cashier to convince me Thank you, ma'am. You call them ma'am. You know, it's like it was an insult to be called ma'am there.   Terry  02:44 Guys.   Roy Barker  02:46 Well tell us a little bit about your journey. How did you grow up wanting to you know, help others is this kind of been something that led you down the functional path?   Dr. Linda  02:57 You know, I've always kind of been I always saved I'm still a nerd I was I've always been a nerd and I always I kind of go back to middle school when I just you know you have those moments you know you have that day that you just you just know something's just gonna change your life well I had that moment when I was in middle school when a kid was he said some not so nice things about my about my body. And it was just that one thing that you know you you turn would say make lemon into lemonade. You know, life gives you lemons, you make lemonade and and I just from that time I was about 12 years old. I just just totally just changed by live I started I started running which then I fell in love with running and then my mom started taking me to the do remember Jack Lalanne? Yeah. So one of the first gyms that he had opened was in Orange County, California. And my mom would take me to the gym when it was women back in the day, it was just women were on certain days, men were on certain days and then on Sunday,we would split the time, ever since   Terry  04:11 Wow.   Dr. Linda  04:12 Um, it just it really just changed my life. I mean, I grew up under care under like chiropractic care. we ever got sick, which very rarely we did. My mom went just and got herbs out from the garden and just made us a tea and just said drink this. You know, we didn't miss school. If we have a little cough. It's just like drink this. You're going to school. It's not like nowadays. And she cooked for us at home. We weren't really want to pop a pill for anything. It's like okay, we're going to go to the chiropractor. And so that's kind of how I grew up. And I knew that I wanted to be a doctor. I wanted to help people. And I really wanted to be a brain surgeon because I thought that's like the hardest thing that anybody could do. That would be the coolest thing. But there's a little problem. I hate blood.   Terry  05:00 That reading under it.   Dr. Linda  05:02 Like, I don't know about that. And growing up under chiropractic care now i just i rant I because I ran a lot as well, I ran cross country and I started running marathons and so forth. But that's really what kept me on healthy and sane. And it was just amazing what they could do the miracles that I saw just in our in our, you know, in the practice, just watching people and hearing the stories, but in our, you know, with our family as well. So that's kind of where my journey started. And I went to chiropractic college, and from there, you know, physical medicine is working more on the body, the physical portion of the body. And then I got more into what's called Functional Medicine, which is more working on from a nutritional perspective, the biochemistry of the body. So that's kind of how I got involved in in what I'm doing now. And I love it.   Roy Barker  06:01 So interesting, bringing up Jack Lalanne, because I remember my dad, and one of our neighbors, they would get together, I guess, whenever his show was, I can't remember like in the evening, and they had this, you know, like a slant board that he did a lot of stuff on slant boards, but he wore those like, coveralls tap things all day. Yeah.   Terry  06:23 Yeah, but my dad had like a jumpsuit, it was just suit thing. And he used to mow his lawn mowed the lawn and it with his with his black socks that we thought we laughed forever. Like, Dad, you are such a nerd. And we cannot have any way Come while you're doing this. Oh my god. Well, that just seems like such a natural progression for you to go into functional medicine and the holistic side of it, since that's how you were brought up. And so you know, so many of us, it seems like now we just really want to throw pills at it and just fix it quick fix. We want the drive thru, we want everything now. It's just everything on demand. And it can't be like that, especially when you're talking about your health.   Dr. Linda  07:14 I think we've been shaped that way by by social media, the news, I mean, everything you see, like you say you want something, you go online, you order it, and you get it in 24 hours, you know, you don't even have to leave your house for anything anymore. If you want coffee, you want you know, a pizza, which I don't eat, but you know it pretty much anything. If you want to you can google anything, you want to learn something, you just YouTube it and it's there instantly. But you know, it's not always the best option. As I always have conversations with patients because they want to get better. They want to say, Oh, well, if I do this, well, I feel better tomorrow, yet they've had an issue for years. And a lot of them like it's got to be easy. Otherwise, they won't do it. And it really frustrates me. And I think that's kind of where the mind training comes in. And I remember I believe it's Rohn Jim Rohn. He says, don't wish for things to be easier, wish for you to be better. Because when you're better, things will be easier. Everything you do becomes easier, not Let's wish that this was easier. And that's kind of the progression of where we have gone as a society. And it's really just just disheartening. Because we never get to, I think, reach our full potential if we just want everything to be easier.   Terry  08:46 Yeah, and it just seems like I mean, everybody, I feel like everybody wants to do the right thing, but wanting and doing that. It's just not the same thing.   Roy Barker  09:00 Well, and we found out it's, you know, we talk start have started talking a lot about sustainability. Because, you know, I'm that guy that wants to quit and cookies today and tomorrow, I want to see, you know, a big difference. And I know that's not realistic, but it's like, you know, that's the that's kind of the world my mind lives in. And so, you know, us trying to make these little changes and tweaks that we can mindlessly do from now on, you know, something that we don't have to continually think about and just because that's us, we we know what we should do. And we know how to do it. We know all the right things. It's just, you know, something, we can start but something will typically derail us like you know, I don't know just a change in schedule. Sometimes that's all it takes   Terry  09:48 something happy or stressful either way.   Dr. Linda  09:52 I think that's where the mindset comes in. And I that's where behavior modification and I look at my soul As an athlete, and that's how I say I'm an athlete, and if I'm an athlete that requires daily discipline of mine training, water intake movement, what fuel I'm putting in my body. And you know, when I'm in practice still, and I do functional medicine and physical medicine, the physical aspect is I'm still adjusting patients and I will share with them because they come in with like, shoulder problems, back problems, knee problems, or you know, a lot of kids their their necks, they're like this the whole time. They have horrible posture. And I'm telling them, it's not what I'm doing. And here, it's what are you doing the 24 and a half other hour 23 and a half other hours that you're not in the office when I'm working on you, we need to focus on. And I think when you change that mindset that you know, hey, I'm Roy, I'm an athlete in training and your training is so that you can perform better in life. And you can be the best version of you. Because I always feel if you if you're not feeding yourself, Well, you can't express yourself to the fullest potential that I believe God has given you gifts to share with everyone else. So everyone else is losing now.   Roy Barker  11:19 We talked about this, that it affects us. You know, we I've got another business podcast, but you know, we had a guy on there talked about, you know, to be a good leader, we have to have that self care, we got to get our sleep, we got to eat right. And it's true. Because, you know, if you don't get enough sleep, you typically grumpier, you don't make as good or as quick decisions. And it just it, it really affects all areas of our life and our partners as well. Because when I don't feel good, I'm sure. You know, I'm not as active or as quick to do things for Terry as I should be. So we, anyway, that's a good point to make   Terry  11:56 leading by example. Its such a when you think about it, it's like, oh, my gosh, what do I have? What do I have delete about? But you do everybody does? You just have to do it?   Roy Barker  12:10 Yeah. And I'm thinking about the about you saying that you're an athlete, as I just got to thinking when you said that, I thought, Oh, I'm kind of like SpongeBob is SpongeBob, his friend, you know, like, Yeah, what is that? Yeah. What I feel like   Terry  12:26 always thinking, I'm the athlete that's gonna join the hot dog eating contest. That's terrible. I'm kidding. That was an awesome analogy. Because I'm, I was thinking that's something I could do. If I thought I was an athlete, and started in that mindset, and started going toward that path. It might it, it would help me not might, it would help me try to get back in because, you know, we get off track. So   Dr. Linda  12:52 we're even asking yourself, what would the best version of you be like? No. Do you have a game or having a picture of the best version of you? What would he or she look like? And it's totally up to you however you want that person to be?   Terry  13:09 No. Oh, that's awesome. Yeah, taking notes. Yeah.   Roy Barker  13:14 You know that that vision because we talk a lot about in in business, where do we you know, where do you see yourself? How do we want to get there? So we should do the same thing with our with our health and wellness as well. So we had a couple different things we hope to get to. But I think we wanted to start with the five health strategies women should know that doctors don't sell them.   Dr. Linda  13:43 We'll see what how many we can cover that. Yeah. interesting one, but let me tell you that because this is what I share with my patients especially as as we get older. A number one I'm like, you have to have protein. I'm like big on you've got it. I tell my patients and men and women I said the minimal you should be having as 100 grams of protein a day and have protein for breakfast, break your fast with protein. Because you have macros protein, you have fat, you have carbohydrates, you do not need carbohydrates to live, you do need fat because your brain is primarily made of fat and it will function off of fat, not necessarily I mean, it does also offer sugar carbohydrates. However, for every 100 grams of protein that you eat, your body will make 60 grams of carbohydrates. So it's still making carbs that other systems in the body can run off of it. Yeah, that's one thing I said eat protein for breakfast and, and I have them shoot for the goal. First eat 100 grams of protein. If you want to add in some carbs or something else after that, then go for it, and that way, most of the time, they're satiated. Not only that, they're starting to build muscle. And you when you focus on muscle, the fat just comes off. And you need to have healthy muscle in order to have a healthy body. Because there's other systems that benefit from having healthy, a healthy muscle mass, you know, in your body, and as you increase it, your fat mass is just going to go down. So that's one thing I said eat protein for breakfast and shoot for 100 grams.   Roy Barker  15:33 Okay, okay. Got it? Yeah, because, as on the chiropractor side, I guess, you know, our skeletal system is very dependent upon our muscles to make, you know, because that's another thing I know, about myself is not having as strong back muscles. You know, I tend to slump over probably more than I shouldn't   Terry  15:55 sitting at the desk and just, you know, look in different directions. And   Dr. Linda  16:00 in the end, take a look at the older population, they look more emaciated. We were just talking like about Jack Lalanne. I mean, he was ripped, and he looked amazing. It's like, Okay, take him and a person that's running all the time, who hardly has any muscle mass, and they both break their hip, who's going to recover faster? I'm banking on the guy with the muscle, not the scrawny guy who is going to lose even more muscle mass because they're like, well, I can't move, I can't do anything. Whereas the guy that has more muscle mass, like why can still work my upper body. So give me some weights or let me do something and they're going to heal and recover because most of the older population, they don't actually die from a hip fracture. They die from the complications of a hip fracture, that hit home that really hits home personally, because that did happen with a loved one. No, that's why I'm like, even as we get older, and one of the common reasons people don't eat protein as they get older is because they their stomach, they make less hydrochloric acid to break down to proteins, so they don't feel like they're hungry. And I'm like, Okay, then you need to start supplementing with hydrochloric acid because yes, you do start making less however, you, you need that in order to digest the protein that you're eating.   Terry  17:27 Okay. Interesting.   Roy Barker  17:32 All right, so what what is the what is the second thing   Dr. Linda  17:35 number two would be kind of like we're talking about, you know, protein for muscle is resistance training. Our ancestors were moving, they were they were moving all the time, the men went out and did the hunting. Right. They were very active. And women, they didn't just stay, stay, stay around the grounds and just chitchat. They were preparing things as well, they were doing so I'm a big believer of, you know, resistance training, moving heavy things, more functional movements, I do a couple different things. at the gym, I like to do more like I like to do squats, I like to do lunges, anything is going to work more the bigger muscles, you know, like, chest press, things of that sort. And I've also go to like a combat fitness class, which is a combination of like kickboxing, boxing, kind of martial arts and doing ropes and push ups and setups and you're just moving the whole time. And I believe that resistance training really helps a lot with that. And especially it just gives you more confidence. As women, I always feel like we need to be more confident. And that once again, is going to help build muscle and when you help build muscle, your basal metabolic rate goes up. So your fat mass goes down. And we have a tendency to focus I think we've had weight loss. The whole weight loss industry, that's what they're focused on weight loss, but whatever you focus more on, you become you have more of that problem. It's just like, what happened when Oh, drug free America. It's like, you know, we're having more drugs. Now. Why don't we focus on Hey, let's get America healthy.   Terry  19:27 Say no to drugs. That's the whole thing.   Dr. Linda  19:31 is like, let's let's focus on you know, becoming stronger, more functional in our movements, you know, posture and we're talking no kids who are, you know, here, it's sad that I have to tell kids, Okay, sit up, shoulders back, you know, the girls chest up, you know, and in their head is like, forward and like okay, you have like 12, a 12 pound bowling ball. That's way out here. And it's just creating biomechanically the body, you're gonna have a lot of other issues, lower back issues, mid back issues. And so just being mindful of even just your posture as well. So the the protein, the resistance training and the resistance training, you become more in tune with your, your, the physicality of your body, to your strength, your posture.   Roy Barker  20:21 And even if you can't make it to the gym, you know, there are a lot of things. And that's a great thing I keep in kind of been on this kick today about how what a great time we live in, we have so much information and things at our fingertips. But anyway, the point was, I was gonna say, we can look up ways to do the resistance training around the house with things that we have, we don't have to go buy a lot of equipment. We don't have to go to a gym, we can do it, you know, right here,   Terry  20:50 and there's a YouTube video for me, YouTube, whatever, there's something for everything.   Dr. Linda  20:54 Absolutely. And those bands come out come really handy through those really intense because you're, you're stressing the muscle throughout the full range of motion, right? Like working with free weights at the gym. It's just like, okay, you get to maximal contraction, then you just, you know, kind of release it and go back down when you're using bands. I mean, you're working the muscle and full range of motion. Oh, it's great.   Roy Barker  21:22 Yeah, and a lot of those two actually can help you incorporate that core strengthening as well, which I know that that's really important. You know, we tend to want to focus on our extremities, but that strengthen in our core, helps with balance and a lot of other things.   Dr. Linda  21:39 100% Absolutely. prevents a lot of lower back. lower back problems, which, literally, I mean, probably actually have you both experienced some back problems.   Roy Barker  21:52 Not just like, more, well, she's   Terry  21:56 got terrible I have a lower back fracture I didn't even know I ever had and then some crushed disc in my neck. And I just feel like I'm just all shriveled up already.   Roy Barker  22:05 Yeah, and I haven't had any thing like that. I mean, I was out moving some tree limbs yesterday and think I might have overdone it. So I've been kind of hobbling around like a older gentleman today.   Dr. Linda  22:19 So you're, you're a little sore today.   Roy Barker  22:22 very sore.   Terry  22:23 I feel like if I move, you know, I feel like some mornings I get up and I just don't want to move because I hurt in those certain areas. But I know once I get going, I do. Close your ears, Roy. Once I get going, I do feel I feel better afterwards. I mean, I'm gonna be tired until I address the issues, you know, like I should, I guess. But the more I move, the better I feel along the day, and I'm able to accomplish more.   Dr. Linda  22:57 And once you get going, it's kind of like okay, I'm going on, right? It's moving, it's moving. Right?   Terry  23:03 You can do this. I can do this. It can do this. I can do this.   Roy Barker  23:07 Well, sometimes it's like in life in business and health and exercise and everything. It's it's a momentum, if you can ever take that first step, the second step, and third step, they just become much easier.   Terry  23:21 Yeah.   Dr. Linda  23:21 And we have to talk to ourselves a lot of time. I mean, we all do, right. I'm not the only crazy one that's having conversations with her.   Terry  23:30 I'm my best listener. talker, not listener, I don't listen to myself, I talked to myself.   Dr. Linda  23:38 times we have some pretty intense conversations, right? I mean, in the morning, it's like, oh, you know, you really need to sleep you really need to get your rest. The other ones say get up. Yeah. And the other ones now but yeah, you went to bed late last night and it's like the the angel and the devil kind   Terry  23:57 of exactly. That is exactly what it's like. Yeah, I hope nobody is listening to what's going on in my head because I know what I'm that's it straight jack and for me, I'm going   Dr. Linda  24:10 all be committed if you can we all read each other's minds, you know, that person is thinking you look at them, like we're given the devil Look,   Terry  24:21 if you could just give them the little white bubble, you know, that says what they're thinking what what everybody's thinking, you know, with the little dots on it, and everybody's thinking this. There's a cloud. Oh, gosh. Okay, we digress. Yeah. So what's the third thing, ma'am   24:33 Third one I always tell my patients do this as well is check their ability to digest their food. Because you can be eating all this great food grass fed organic pasture raised, but if you're not digesting it, it's like you have holes in your tank. Should one have a real easy way to do this. is to take the baking de baking soda test. There's another test called the Heidelberg test, but you have to go into the doctor's office and it's like three, I think it's like 300 bucks, you swallow something in there, a little pill and then it tells you how much hydrochloric acid stomach is releasing. But if you do like a just a baking soda test, I have my patients do this like for three mornings in a row. And what they do is take about a quarter of a teaspoon of baking soda, pour it in some water, put in some water, mix it about four ounces first thing in the morning and drink it, they should get a nice, healthy belch within like the first 30 seconds minute, and within three minutes, if you don't belch there's a good likelihood that you're low in hydrochloric acid. And you need hydrochloric acid of course to stimulate instruct the whole digestive system important for gallbladder function, pancreatic output on liver function, opening and closing of different valves in the digestive tract. So said you've got to make sure that you're digesting the food that you are, you know you're eating, because then you're not extracting the nutrients. And you're not triggering the nutrient centers in the brain telling you Hey, I'm full. I've had enough. Okay. in the morning. I'll do that in the morning, then you want me know?   Terry  24:57 So it's a quarter of a teaspoon with water or ounces of water? Okay. Yeah.   Roy Barker  26:40 All right. And I got permission to belch.   Terry  26:42 Oh, my gosh, I was gonna say I don't think he has an issue. Sorry.   Roy Barker  26:51 Okay, thank you. Let's move on to Okay.   Dr. Linda  26:58 All right. Number four, we have been talking a little bit about this. But I think you've really, really have to train your mind. Because in the mornings, when there's times I normally get up at four in the morning, we like to meditate. And I remember this, I had gone to retreat, and I remember the doctors had, he's in my head saying Do you want to stay the same? Or do you want to change in the biggest time, there's two times throughout the 24 hour cycle, when your brain is more susceptible to changes subconsciously. And a lot of the things that we do on a conscious level, we can't change them on a conscious level because they're done via the subconscious level. So it's between it's right when you're waking up. And that four to five o'clock hour is when those brainwaves start to change, just like your beta brainwave, for example, is when you're awake, you're wide awake, and you're ready to go. But when you're sleeping, you're in what's called a Delta brainwave. So think about this, you're in you, you go through Delta, when you're asleep in a you're just waking up, it's called theta. And then when you're a little bit more active, it's alpha. And then when you're super active, it's beta. So you're going through that transition where your brainwaves are changing when you're just waking up. And also when you start winding down and going to bed. So that's the important time to really work on the that subconscious mind and with meditation, visualization, affirmations, speaking to yourself, recording your goals and actually listening to your goals in your own voice. super powerful.   Terry  28:55 I have heard that Yeah. Many things, but I haven't done it yet. So I don't like to lose myself in that circle. I got an excuse for everything. I hear a lot.   Dr. Linda  29:05 Yeah, do it. It's really powerful. And then, I mean, I go back and I have the recordings of podcasts that I do. like years ago before podcasting became so popular, just being on radio shows. And I'm listening to them. They just came up on my phone. I'm like, wow, who's this girl? She's smart. And I'm like, Oh my God.   Terry  29:29 That's too funny.   Dr. Linda  29:30 But just listening to your voice like no, Terry today's gonna be the best day ever today, you know, and then you're you're just you're really just speaking out to the universe what you want. Because everything we say we think has a vibrational energy has a frequency. The heart map Institute has done a study that our heart has like this big energy field. You know, and even just when you hug someone like you know, Heart to Heart instead of the side hug It's so powerful, you know. So I try to like, hug my kids and I just, you know, squeeze them. I'd rather have like a hug Heart to Heart instead of like a side hug. And it's just, you know, when you train your mind, you really can do anything as you were saying, it's like, oh, yeah, and I really, I really don't want to get up, you start finding excuses, of why you don't want to get up right?   Roy Barker  30:27 Now, so much. No, that's interesting, because, you know, I've tried meditation over the years, and just never had much success. But you know, what I think I've learned lately is that it's not going to be perfect every time. But we have to stick with it. Because you know, I have better days than not. But the other thing we added is doing it at night, right before bed for me, because it clears my head, have all these other thoughts I've got going on. But it really relaxes me and prepares me for sleep. It's interesting how that happens.   Dr. Linda  31:03 And there's so many different forms of meditation. I was at a retreat, and we were in meditation from, I want to say it was four in the morning till about eight in the morning. Wow. It went by so fast. However, yes, we were in the meditation for that long and it went by fast. And before I was just like, people were telling me that had attended the retreat. I'm like, there's no way they're like, it only felt like it was 20 minutes. And it did, it only felt like it was 20 minutes, because meditation really is just is just being aware. Well, and there's times where I'm like meditating. I'm closing my eyes, and I'm thinking about everything else I got to do. And then I just bring myself back to the present moment. And I'm like, No, no, no, no, no, just come back. And I just go, I just kind of, you know, look at my look at like, looking at something dark. And just breathe and focus on my breath. Yeah. And there's guided meditations. And you can start with the five minute meditation, just focusing on your breath, and just being aware of your breath.   Roy Barker  32:13 Yeah, that's kind of what I do that I tried to do 10 minutes, but try to really focus on that. Breathe in, in and feeling that go all the way down, not in holding it for a minute, but then actually, you know, feeling an exhale. The other thing too, is I'm a very shallow breather during the day. And so that's a good time to try to train myself to take those deep breaths. But it's hard. I have to admit, it's a challenge to keep re centered or keep in the moment, because I'm like, you, I'm thinking, Oh, when I get through with this, I need to do this and I need to do and then but it's okay. I think I've learned for me, it's okay. I just have to stay say, Okay, stop, you can think about that. When this meditation is through, you don't have to think about it right this moment. You just have to continually remind yourself and recenter   Dr. Linda  33:05 Yeah, and I think a lot of it too, goes back to just, you know, training your mind. Right, is really even the words that you're saying? Like I will, I would say so many times I can't meditate, or I hate meditating. And so those are, those are powerful affirmations in a negative way. Right? Everything we say, our body, our it's, our body encodes that. Yeah. And so we'll create situations in your life to make that true. And that's where the mindfulness and that's where training your mind. Like, I can do this. I can figure it out. There's a way if other people do have done it, I can do it. I'm not really sure how but I'm sure I can figure out a way. And then what happens you get some sort of YouTube video shows up a friend calls you get a text, something shows up a book falls off the shelf. Crazy things happen.   Terry  34:09 World runs by it's like over the hedge that movie, you know, squirrel squirrel, that's me, I can get distracted by anything.   Roy Barker  34:17 But I think that the the self talk too, is important. Because my dad used to have a saying that cat never could. And so you know, when we say I can't, it may be, you know, reframing that say how can I? Or let's figure out how we can not just I can't because   Terry  34:36 if you want to have already made up your mind,   Roy Barker  34:39 yeah, it's like whatever you tell you. When is it there's a saying about that, that you can be, you can be successful or you can be a failure. It's whatever you tell yourself. You'll make that right. You know, if you say I'm a failure, I'm a failure. Right? Yeah.   Dr. Linda  34:56 Absolutely. And as you were saying, if you say something like well I can't do that. You can just add yet. Yeah, you know, sentence or as you were saying, How do I reframe this? Or if I have questions, I have patients and people that I coach ask, you know, what would it take for me to blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah? And just throw that question out there? What would it take? And when you do that, something will show up. It's like Google, holding your brain in and it's like, oh, you know, why am I so dumb? It's like, Okay, well, your brain is gonna bring back memories of stupid things you did when you were a kid. And that's like, That's why, and why am I so awesome? Yeah, it's gonna bring you bring back situations of, well, you did this, this, this and that. So it's really, so much is really the mind training. And I think that's like a missing component. And that really should be the priority in anything that we do, whether it's business, whether it's relationships, whether it's we're trying to get healthier, lose weight, you've got to train the mind and is we're talking about my mind is, Hey, I'm an athlete. I'm not competing in the Olympics or anything, but I try to train like, I'm an athlete, so that I can show up as the best version of myself every single day. So we all need to speak to each other.   Terry  36:28 Right, that I started reading, what is it breaking the perhaps the habit of being yourself? Dr. Joe Dispenza. Oh, yes, we have heard. I mean, he has been his name has been thrown around an awful lot lately. And so   Dr. Linda  36:48 yeah, that's the seminar that I went to their slash retreat seminar that was meditation, neuroscience, and the energy in the room is just like, overwhelming me like, positive and just it's life changing. Oh, Ben week, just   Roy Barker  37:08 say is the visualization and talking to yourself that use that power for good, not evil? Because I was, I was just thinking, how could I make some a bowl of ice cream appear? No. Careful watching.   Terry  37:26 being silly. Alright, yeah. So okay, so that was the fourth one mind, train to mind.   Dr. Linda  37:36 The fifth one that thats really overlooked that your doctor probably will never tell you is very rarely unless you're a functional medicine doctor is that you know, food can heal your body.   Roy Barker  37:52 Yes,   Dr. Linda  37:52 a pill doesn't heal a you know, heal your body, it just turns up certain circuits. So you're not feeling things just like if you're in pain, it's a pain pill, but still doesn't fix the problem. And if you look at the top conditions that we're dealing with, it's really bankrupting our country, from cancer to heart disease to arthritic knees, depression, those are inflammatory conditions, diabetes, you know, die, obesity, those are all inflammatory conditions that are caused by the food we eat and its lifestyle. And so, whatever made our body sick, we can undo it because the beauty of it is we we created the problem unless you were born without let's just say without a spleen or with one kidney or without an arm. You know, though, those are other. That's those are far and few in between, compared to most people that have type two diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, thyroid issues, heart disease, those are all lifestyle and even if you have a gene a genetic predisposition for those, it's so your lifestyle choices and how you live that led it to you. There's a sane and functional medicine, it's your genes load the load the gun, but it's lifestyle that pulls the trigger. Interesting. You can have the genetic predisposition for it, but you're the outcome of it doesn't have to be like your ancestors because you're choosing to do things differently and live differently. So food can heal your body.   Roy Barker  39:38 Yeah, we are we have learned that we've talked to you know a lot of people that that is something that we truly believe and, you know, there used to be a I guess the theory or thought that you couldn't reverse type two diabetes, but I'm here to tell you that you will have a say in my opinion. You can if if you eat Right, and you move right and you do all those things. Most people, I guess, let's say the people that's lifestyle has created it, you can turn your lifestyle around.   Dr. Linda  40:11 Absolutely, yeah. 100% I have seen that and even with heart disease and show many people on medication, and I said you can, food can heal your body. Absolutely. 100%. And it doesn't really benefit a doctor to tell you that. If they're just it's typically a five or seven minute office visit. You can't teach them in that time. And why are you eating that? You know, and sometimes it's deeper than that. There's there's emotional things. And that's why go back into Well, what's going on in the mind? What are you telling yourself? What conversations are you having with yourself? What conversations are you having with everyone else around you? Both all really, they all tie in, you know, together, all five of them. But food can heal and we're talking about food in its most natural state. And well,   Terry  41:09 thats the key right there. Because it's, you know, so much of our food has just been processed and additives and, and supplements as well. So you have to be careful with your supplements if you're taking supplements, but you should try to do as much with with the whole foods first before adding a supplement. Correct?   Dr. Linda  41:33 Absolutely in in with supplements, it's there to supplement, it's very difficult to get all the nutrients that you need, unless you spend the entire day just focusing on that because the food quality today is not the same as it was 50 years ago. Even not saying like McDonald's. They weren't as bad. You know, 30 years ago, 40 years ago. It's pretty bad now and you know, so many of the fast foods I mean, it's it's fast food, and I don't even know what a hamburger costs at McDonald's and how but I'm sure like they're making a huge profit because it's the the cheapest food that you can get,   Terry  42:22 right? It's probably you know that much real beef or whatever they want to call it. And then the rest is just junk, just junk that they've thrown in. Well,   Dr. Linda  42:34 nowadays, too. There's a science to food a lot of there, there's food scientists that there's a lot of chemicals in the food that will actually trigger parts of the brain so that you're not satisfied and you just want more. And there's nutrient sensors in the brain that tells you when you're eating good food, healthy food that you've had enough to eat, and that you don't need to eat anymore. You don't junk food and chemically processed food does not have it doesn't sensor, it doesn't trigger those nutrients sensors in the brain telling you stop eating, you've had a month, it doesn't. Whereas it's really hard to sit down and eat two pounds of steak. I can sit down and eat a pound of ribeye, but I can't sit. You know. I'm sure that after a pound of ribeye, I'm like, Okay, I'm good for a while on stuff. I'm just satisfied. Yet people can eat a whole pizza. And there's no there's hardly any nutrients in that pizza. And they're just like, okay, now I've had a whole pizza and they're more like bloated   Terry  43:42 And they want dessert   Dr. Linda  43:44 They feel uncomfortable. But they still can have dessert. Yeah, they'll still keep eating.   Roy Barker  43:50 So what about these? Speaking of the, you know, food can be medicine, you see a lot of these charts that they how the different foods easily fruits and vegetables, how they align with parts of our body. You know, we've always heard about like the carrots and your eyes side. Tomato, I think it's tomatoes and your heart. But there are some really good infographics out there that have that is is there some validity to that?   Dr. Linda  44:22 You know, that's a good question. We used to share that with people. Honestly, I think a lot of it is more just encouraging people to to eat more of the real food. It's like okay, if if like you say carrots are good for the eyes. Okay, what does that just mean? If I have a little sliver of carrot, I'm good to go. It's where we have to look at Well, how much of carrots right for your eyes, you know, what state and so forth. So, yeah, a lot of the vegetables and fruits there's a lot of vitamins in them and minerals. And how much do you have to eat of that too? Right? Well, there, there is some validity to that. But a lot of the studies don't really show Well, what's the quantity that you have to consume? Is that 100 grams, 200 grams, then we really are getting into the science of all that.   Terry  45:19 Well, then if you have, you know, like one of those, if you have something like type two diabetes, or thyroid issue, or hypothyroidism or hypertension, then you have to worry about, like, the fruit, the sugar and the fruits and which, which of those break it down even further to which of those fruits actually are going to be more beneficial to you?   Dr. Linda  45:45 Absolutely, absolutely. Yes, you, especially a person that's a diabetic, they'll say, Oh, yeah, I eat a lot of fruits and vegetables. And it's, it's like six cups of fruit a day, and maybe like their vegetables considered a carrot, or corn or potato. Like sorry, that's not a vegetable doesn't count like is your vegetable serving. And so really, everything is customized for each person to figure out, you know, what works for Terry, what works for Roy, you may be on two different eating templates. Like, my eating template is different than my husband. And it's funny, because he's like, Okay, what eating? What eating plan are you on? Now? What are you doing now, and I'm like, I'm always rotating, because it's like, the Four Seasons, right? It's like summer, a lot of people eat more vegetables, you lean out more winter, you put on the winter coat, because you're probably you know, eating more, you're eating just more probably snacking on things because you're inside more. When the summer you know, you're outdoors more. So I'm always changing my, my palate changes a lot. And so I rotate the foods that I eat as well. Sometimes I'll be carnivore, where I'm just eating meat. And there was a time where I was a vegetarian, there was time when I was vegan. And there were different times in my life, where I was just doing something different. And it just didn't work for me, it was okay, I was I when I'm like, Okay, I'm gonna go back and do plant based. And then 20 years later, I decided to plant base for just a short period of time. And I'm it just it did not agree with me. I was I felt horrible. My skin was horrible. I got bloated, and I'm like, there's no way I'm going to continue to do this. And for me, and for my body chemistry, it just it didn't agree with it. And we tend to forget that. I'm not sure if you're familiar with like lectin. And, you know, in plants there's, you have, plants can't hide, they can't run away from us. So they have their own little defense system. And if we eat them, it's like, hey, they have their internal defense system, like phytates. Whereas like an animal, you know, that's going to be our dinner, but they can run right into for us in euphoria to eat plants. We're still eating something that doesn't want to be eaten. So it's really looking at each once again, like when I work with patients, it's like, Okay, I need to know their history. What you do have kids, what's your ancestry? What medication are you on? What is your goal? To figure out what eating template works for them? And then we just tweak it as as we go. And just depends on what is the goal when you try to diminish some of the cardiovascular issues you have or you know, control blood sugar, it's just like you want to optimize your thyroid because even like, you mentioned some before Terry about with thyroid, sometimes women who have too many cruciferous vegetables, it can inhibit that whole fibroid on conversion. Right. So yeah, there's a lot to this.   Roy Barker  49:02 Yeah, and then so OK, I think the other important part that you've mentioned is it's okay to tweak, you know, we we can start down a path. And it may not be working exactly the way we need or want it to, but maybe it just takes a little tweak to, you know, get it just to that right spot. And that gets back to I'm sure. You know, you encourage people keep that keep an eating diary. So we know what you're putting in if you're testing your blood, you know, test your blood sugar's you stay on top of your blood pressure, and then you can see how you're eating affects all these things.   Dr. Linda  49:41 Absolutely.   Terry  49:43 And how, Okay, can we I know there's so much to talk about, but I do want to make sure upon this too. So five reasons that you're not losing weight. Oh.   Dr. Linda  49:56 All right. Well, let me run those really quickly. Yeah. Come on down, especially with women as we get older, but one is having low thyroid function. Remember thyroid is a low butterfly gland here that, that really you have thyroid receptor sites and every cell in your body and they are responsible for the basal metabolic rate. So how fast everything goes? Sure, if you have low thyroid, no matter if you're eating clean, you're exercising but you don't address your thyroid. And then you're going to continue to struggle with that. And I've seen that Peto people that go, keto, paleo, they do plant based, they do vegetarian. And I'm like, well, you're if you're, if you don't know your thyroid markers and women, the reason women start to have more thyroid issues as we get older is because our estrogen levels drop, right? We need estrogen for healthy thyroid function. And because of stress that'll interfere with that. So low thyroid would be number two low iron levels as well. I will see that with a lot of women who they don't want to eat, you know, animal products because they they've been told the the narrative is eating meat is bad for you eating meats gonna cause cancer, eating meats gonna raise your cholesterol So I often ask people my goal. How often are you eating like a steak or ribeye? Well, I don't eat red meat. I eat really healthy. I'm like, Well, whatmakes you think they're red meat is not healthy. You know? It's kind of like having you know, why is chicken healthy? And why is beef? not healthy? Why steak not? It's more looking at? Well, how was the animal raised? animal was raised on what steroids antibiotics? Does it make the chicken healthy? No!   Terry  51:46 Right? What kind of meat it is? process? Just foods.   Dr. Linda  51:51 Yep. So the low thyroid, the low iron levels, we see a lot of that you need to have healthy iron levels in order for your thyroid to work properly. And of course, we have all time, low iron levels, you're tired a lot of the time and if you're tired, you're not going to want to exercise. You get lazy, you get complacent, you know you're irritable. You're grumpy. So you just don't feel good.   Terry  52:13 What do you got the funny look in his eye like, No,   Roy Barker  52:17 no, no, no, no, I'm just saying. You know that that's the way that goes with, you know, with sleep that starts the downfall of, you know, grumpy not x not wanting to go exercise just leads to a lot of places. Yes,   Terry  52:31 I'm sorry.   Dr. Linda  52:32 Another one is even on we talked about and if you're not eating enough protein. So I know that I've gone through that even with patients. It's just like people do keto and keto is very high fat, kind of moderate protein. I like to do more of a higher protein, higher fat and then drop down their fat so that fat is just for the purpose so they can feel full.   Terry  52:57 Okay,   Dr. Linda  52:57 break your sugar cravings. And then number four would be stress. You know, stress can be physical stress, chemical, emotional stress, and like you were saying, Roy, I mean, one of the physical stressors is not eating, not sleeping enough not getting adequate sleep, right? Because a lot of healing fat burning occurs while you're sleeping. Yeah, your body's recuperate. Anytime that we're awake, your body's in a catabolic state mean it's, it's breaking down. Anytime we're resting, we're sleeping. We're in an anabolic state, meaning we're recovering. We're building muscle recuperating. So stress the physical, chemical, emotional chemicals, you know, everything that we're eating everything we're putting on her skin, everything in their environment, and emotional comes with our relationships. The most important relationship is the one that you're having with yourself. After that, that mindset and the positive self talk and creating a mind movie a life movie, a life script of what would you want your What was your What is your ideal life, like, and visualizing and seeing it and hear it every single day? It's like, man, I tell everyone, I said I have the best husband in the world. I said, because every morning I just I say that I'm like, I'm so grateful. I have the best husband in the world. So I tease them and I tell him I'm hypnotizing you every day. He is and he's an awesome husband, you know, and then the other one that we overlook and a lot of people overlook and you're hearing more and more of this now or gut infections. I don't know how much you you're learning about, you know, interviewing all these people, but gut infections are huge with parasites bacterial H. pylori, when you're not making enough hydrochloric acid to digest the food, she'll get infections are huge, and I really believe that that's one of the one test that everybody should do and kind of connecting this with COVID. You know, a lot of it has to do with your immune system. And because a lot of people ask me well about COVID, and the shedding and all this, and I'm like, you know what a virus is going to thrive in a weak environment. And it's always looking for a weak host. And guess what 60 80% of your immune system is in your gut. How many doctors are checking your gut for infections? Very few. And that's one thing that's so overlooked. And I think I would prefer running a GI map a stool test over on blood tests sometimes and probably would get better results with patients. Because when you have gut issues, you're going to address that with what diet?   Terry  54:17 That's great.  Right? That's right.   Roy Barker  55:43 Yeah, that's those are two things that I think we have learned or I'll speak for me, those are two things I have learned as we've done the show gut health, because like you said, was it 70 or 80% of our immune system starts there. And the other one is inflammation. It's like inflammation seems to be you know, the bane of all bad things that happened to our body. Start with the inflation.   Dr. Linda  56:11 Yeah. Your body says, Yeah, when your body's inflamed when you're inflamed. Guess what? You will end up with a leaky gut. And when you there's the gut brain connection as well. So when you have leaky gut, you have leaky brain. Oh,   Terry  56:25 yeah.   Dr. Linda  56:26 Huge connection with that. Yeah. So inflammation impacts the gut is well, right,   Roy Barker  56:32 right. Excuse me.   Terry  56:34 Yeah. Oh, my gosh, I remember we had a we we've had a few guests that have talked about leaky gut leaky brain. But recently, we had we had an is Delia neurologists. She's neurologist, she's dead. She's something to do with neurology. I can't think of exactly what her title is.   Dr. Linda  56:57 And even a lot of psychologists now are starting to work with their patients even address them. And psychiatrists, instead of giving them medications just like, hey, they're running more labs now. And even a person that's depressed can have low iron levels, and they're like you're depressed and the low iron levels or have low functioning thyroid, and they want to put them on some sort of medications, like, Okay, my low iron levels, and my low thyroid levels are also connected to my diet.   Roy Barker  57:26 Right? Yeah, exactly. Well, I know we're running way long. But we did want to get those last ones in there. And we certainly do appreciate that. Did you have something else, Terry?   Terry  57:38 No, no, that was great. I know, I can talk to you all night and get leaky brain. I'm like, oh, gosh, now I gotta go worry about I gotta take my omega 369 oil right after this. Working on that I'm working on not getting all timers or dementia. Working on all of that in my gut.   Roy Barker  57:58 Dr. Linda, we'll have to have you back on we could like I said, we could go on for another hour very easily. But yeah, we thank you for your time. What is a habit? Or a tool? What is something that you do or use every day in your life that you feel like adds a lot of value professional or personal?   Dr. Linda  58:18 gratitude? Excuse me, lets you know, excuse me?   Terry  58:36 Oh, my goodness.   Dr. Linda  58:39 I'm okay. Okay.   Terry  58:42 Gratitude isn't like good. I mean, that that is a really good one. I have to remind myself all the time with my angel on my devil on my shoulder saying gratitude, gratitude, gratitude. You have to if you don't if you're not grateful, then we'll have to look at the good things that are happening because everything else will pile on and it'll become a bad situation   Roy Barker  59:09 you know, even on our worst days, you know, we have to remember there's somebody that's got it much much worse than we do we have a sha you know, we have third world or first world problems, you know, we've got shelter, we've got food. But you know, we worry about the internet not working or the computer not being fast enough. So yeah, we really need to watch that because that just adds to needless stress and I'm in that person. So I'm speaking from personal experience there for sure.   Dr. Linda  59:41 so grateful that I still have my voice for some reason. I need water.   Terry  59:48 That's right, that just goes to show you you can never drink too much water right.   Roy Barker  59:55 Alright, so who do you like to work with? How can you help And then of course, how can they reach out and get a hold of you?   Dr. Linda  1:00:03 Well, I would say the people that are willing to take responsibility, so I'm losing my voice here, fitness. Or say people that are willing to take responsibility and are ready to make a change. Okay. Yeah. And most people that come to me have been to, oh, gosh, 7,7,8,9, sometimes even 10 doctors before, you know, they come and see me. And they're at their wit's end that see if I can get my voice back here. They're kind of at their wit's end of just, they don't know what to do anymore. Excuse me. And the best way to to get ahold of us is just go to our website, Dr. Linda Marquez.com   Roy Barker  1:00:57 Okay. All right. Great. Well, and we will include that in the show notes. Again, thank you so much for your time. It's been very educational and enlightening. Yeah, we appreciate that very   Terry  1:01:07 much.   Dr. Linda  1:01:07 Thank you both. And I appreciate what you're doing, and just how you're sharing the information and bringing on guests to educate and help other people and just contributing to the good of this world. So I want to acknowledge you both and thank you for that.   Roy Barker  1:01:23 You bet.   Terry  1:01:24 So glad to have had you on here and we'd love to have you back. You've bee a wealth of information   Roy Barker  1:01:31 well, we never talked, I wanted to also talk about energy. You talked a little bit about that. That's something we've learned a lot about as well. So next time we can do that.   Dr. Linda  1:01:39 Sounds good.   Roy Barker  1:01:40 Alright, that's gonna do it for another episode of Feeding fatty. Of course, I am Roy.

Theology Throw Down episode 16 The Christian Podcast Community podcasters gather to discuss Romans 13 related to the relationship between church and state and how that applies. Should Christians submit to the government when they make laws like vaccines or mask mandates or make illegal conversation therapy? Conversation therapy is the idea that it would be illegal to talk someone out of homosexuality. When do we obey and when do we resist the government and how can we do that biblically. Much of this is an issue of Christian Liberty. What are the principles that rule when we should do or not do something? Some of the discussion plays into issues of medical decisions or matters of personal protection. These issues fall under the question of what is the government's role? We must first understand their role before we can answer do we submit to the authority of government. The issue of church and state has been a regularly debated topic, especially in America. However, the church serves a much different feature than the state and each has its proper function. When one or the other goes outside of their God-given function there will be problems. One of the things that often gets confused in the discussion of the separation of church and state is the difference between obedience and submission. Obedience is following a requirement where submission is an attitude. Other podcasts related to this topic: Does Romans 13 Allow Tyranny? Is Romans 13 an Excuse for Covid 19 Cowardice?

And if you really like Your Anxiety Toolkit, I'd appreciate you telling a friend (maybe even two). EPISODE TRANSCRIPTION This is Your Anxiety Toolkit - Episode 215. Welcome back, everybody. It is the final episode of Your Anxiety Toolkit for the year 2021. I will not be putting out a podcast next week because it falls right on the holidays, and I really wanted to make sure I give you all time to be with your family instead of listening to my voice. If you are in the holiday season and you want to listen to my voice, there are so many, in fact, there are 214 episodes. You can go back and listen to. I just want to be with my family, and I want you to be with the people you love. Speaking of people you love, today we're talking about setting boundaries with loved ones or managing our relationship during the holidays. However, I did a whole episode about this last week. You can go back. It's episode 214, where we talk about holiday anxiety. We did discuss some of this there as well. So, you can go back and listen there. But for right now, I want us to talk about managing relationships, specifically during the holidays, but this episode can be applied to any old day of the week. Now, before we get started, we always do the “I did a hard thing.” This one is from Rachel. We do an “I did a hard thing” to motivate you, to remind you that there are more people out there going through what you're going through. You're not alone. Rachel shared with us today: “I have somatic OCD.” For those of you who don't know what that means, it means that you have OCD about specific sensations that show up in your body. You sometimes feel like you can't stop noticing them or you're afraid you will never stop noticing them. Sometimes you're afraid that the feeling will never go away and it can feel really disorienting. So, Rachel says: “I have somatic OCD, and I always need to distract myself not to notice them. I've been able to drive without the radio or calling anyone and it feels so good.” Rachel, this is so good. You're doing what we talk about in ERP School. ERP School is our online course that teaches how to expose ourselves to fears, specifically obsessions for people with OCD, health anxiety, and these types of OCD, like somatic OCD, on how to practice facing our fear. In this case, it was her driving, that without using safety behavior or compulsions. So, in this case, the compulsion would be to have the radio on or calling someone to distract her on her somatic obsession or her sensation. So, Rachel, amazing job, you're doing the work. You're doing the exposure and the response prevention. One thing I want to mention to everybody, if you have OCD or an anxiety disorder, is we must do both. We must face our fears and not do the safety behaviors to reduce or remove that discomfort that we feel when we face our fear. So, you've explained this perfectly. Congratulations. I am so proud of you. Love getting the “I did a hard thing's” from you guys. And so, just so thrilled to get that message from you. All right, let's go over to the episode. It's the holidays. You're anticipating the gifts and the food and the time and the travel and all the things, but what's worse than that is anticipation of the interactions that you're going to have with certain family members. Now, if you're listening to this and it's not the holidays, it's the same. You're anticipating going to work, but you're dreading the interactions. You're dreading how messy things get. You're going to school, and you're dreading how messy things get with the people you have in your life – your students, your classmates, your teacher, your friends, whoever it may be. I want you to think about your responsibilities. And I talk a lot with my patients and clients about responsibility because it's a really important part of recovery. When we think about the holidays, we think about a certain event that's coming up. I'll often explain to my patients that really all you need to do is you need to focus on your lane. So, I've talked about this before on the podcast, but I want you to imagine you're driving on the highway, you're in your car, and the only thing you're responsible for is to not run into other people in their lane and to stay in your lane and to go at a pace that's right for you and a speed that's right for you and in a car that's right for you. Now, that metaphor is exactly how you're going to get through the holidays or get through this event that you've got coming up. Your job is to take responsibility for you and your lane. Now, sometimes people in the lane next to us come on over into our lane and they want to tell us how to act, and they want to tell us what to do, and they want to impose on you their beliefs. Now, our job is to remind them and set boundaries that that's not your lane, that's their lane. And their job is to stay in their lane. And our job is to stay in our lane. Now, in addition, we have to be careful that we are not popping on over into their lane and telling them how they should be, and telling them how they should act, and trying to take responsibility for their feelings, and trying to prevent them from judging you because that's their lane. We talked about this in the last episode. Go back and listen to that. But that's not your job either. It's not your job to get their approval because that's their responsibility. How they feel is their responsibility. We can't control that. And so, first, before we even talk about setting boundaries, we have to be really clear on what's in your lane. So, an example for me is, as I go into the holidays, I am going to be really aware of what is my responsibility, how do I want to show up? And then it's my responsibility to show up in my lane doing so. But it's also important to catch when I'm-- often we do this. It's like, “Well, I'm going to do X, Y, and Z because I really want A, B and C to like me.” But that's your lane. It's not your responsibility. It's not your job to get them to approve of you because we don't have any control of that. And as we talked about last week, their judgment of us is their responsibility. It's a reflection of them. It's not a reflection of us. So, we have to be really careful of really getting clear on how we want to show up and only trying to control us, because we can't control our family members. They're going to do what they do. They're going to act out. They're going to be up in your lane. From there, we can set a boundary to protect ourselves from them coming into your lane. So, when we set boundaries, we usually set boundaries when somebody is imposing their stuff onto us. Imagine if someone came into your house and walked in with their shoes on and put dirt all over the carpet, you might say, “Excuse me, please would you take your shoes off?” There's like a boundary violation. If they come into my house and they start smoking cigarettes, no disrespect or judgment on people who do smoke cigarettes, but I'm going to say, “I'm really sorry, we actually don't smoke in this house. Can you please put your cigarette out and go out to the back?” And so, that would be me setting a boundary. Now, a lot of you brought in and you asked questions about this. Last week we addressed a lot of the questions. So, an example, somebody said, “How can I communicate with my family about my OCD and keep my boundaries?” So, what you might do is first ask yourself. If I was going to communicate about my OCD or my anxiety or my depression or my eating disorder or whatever you may have, panic, is ask yourself, are you communicating with it so that they change the way they act because that's their lane? The only reason we would need to communicate about our stuff is so that we can set a boundary. Let's say a really big one that I have had to practice is when family members comment about weight. I had a couple of family members in my childhood who every Christmas would, “Have Merry Christmas, Kimberley, your weight is blank. You're up a bit. You're down a bit. You're bigger, you're smaller, whatever.” And it was so incredibly painful and so incredibly unhealthy for me. And so, the boundary here would be to say, “I would really prefer that you don't comment on my way. And if you do, I'm going to remove myself from this interaction.” So, that's a boundary and it's respectful and it's compassionate, and I'm not doing it to harm them or discipline them or pay them back. I'm doing it because it's a boundary violation, and it's in my lane. When I'm in my lane, I want to have a really positive idea about my food and my body. If a family member is telling you how you should act, you might say to them, “Thank you so much for your thoughts. I am going to choose to do it this way. And I would really appreciate if you didn't comment.  if you're unable to hold that boundary, I'm going to have to leave,” or you can say whatever you want. You can just set the limit. Sometimes you don't even need to tell them your boundary. You might just keep it to yourself. Like, “Oh, if they're going--” if a family member says, “I'm so OCD about stuffing,” or whatever they say, “I'm so OCD about my cooking,” you might just not even need to express the boundary with them. You might gently just get yourself up and walk away. That's a boundary. Sometimes we don't have to verbally express boundaries because we can just remove ourselves from the situation and stay in our lane. Somebody said, “How to say no to things?” So, you've decided you don't want to do something. We talked about this last week in Episode 214. You've decided you don't want to do something. And so, you say to them, “I'm going to bring baked goods. I'm not going to bake them myself. I will buy them at the bakery. No, I'm not going to hand bake them.” Or you might say, “No, I'm not going to go to that Christmas party,” or “No, I am not going to buy gifts this year.” Okay? Now, that's you holding your own boundary. Then your job, and again, this is why I shared about the lanes, is your job is to let them have their feelings about it. They're allowed to have their feelings. They're even allowed to act out. If they act out and they say something unkind, you may set a boundary with them. But we can't hold everybody to our standards. Some people are going to act out. They may not have the skills you have. They may be triggered. They may have expectations of you. And that's okay. They're allowed to have expectations, but it doesn't mean you have to do it. You may choose to follow their expectations. We talked about that again last week. But that's your decision. You have to be responsible for you and saying yes to what matters to you and saying no to what doesn't matter to you. Any time you notice resent, show up, that's usually because you violated your own boundary. You did something you didn't want to do and you should have said no to. It's okay. I'm going to keep saying this to you guys. It's okay to disappoint people. We will disappoint them. It's either they get disappointed, or you do the thing they want you to do, and then you're disappointed. And you have to choose. It's your responsibility to choose. And we do this responsibility work compassionately. I speak a lot in my book, The Self-Compassion Workbook for OCD, about compassionate responsibility. That's saying: “I am responsible for me,” but not in a disciplinarian, like you're responsible for yourself, you're alone, you're on your own kind of way. It's a compassionate act of, “Yes, I get to take responsibility for myself. I get to take care of myself. I get to say no, I get to say yes. I get to make those choices and I'll do them kindly.” Somebody asked a question about managing irritability. This is a great one, because our family members and our friends and our loved ones and the people at our Christmas party or our Hanukkah party, our Kwanzaa, they may irritate us. Yeah, it's okay to feel irritated by our family members. My husband and I always-- we learned this maybe five years ago. We get caught up in it. I'll be like, “Why are you acting that way?” And he'll say gently to me, “Kimberley, I'm allowed to feel this way.” And I'm like, “Oh crap, you're right. I keep forgetting that you're allowed to feel what you want to feel.” Or he'll be upset and he'll be like, “What's wrong? Why are you being this way?” And I'll be like, “I'm allowed to feel this way.” And he's like, “Oh crap, you're right.” You're allowed to be irritable. You're not allowed to be unkind. I mean, you are, but you have responsibility, There's consequences. But ideally, let yourself be irritable. Be compassionate with your irritability. Like say, “Yeah, it makes complete sense that I'm irritable. This is hard. It makes complete sense that I'm annoyed. They've said something that annoyed me.” Again, they're allowed to say annoying things. We get to remove ourselves if it doesn't feel right or we get to express ourselves.” That really hurt my feelings. That made me upset.” This is why you're allowed to share. Let's see. Someone said dealing with a toxic parent. Well, it depends. My answer to that is it depends on whether you're a minor or an adult. If you're a minor, it's hard to remove yourself from a toxic parent. They are your guardian. You're legally under their care. But you can remove yourself from them physically in terms of going to another room. You can try and share with them. “That was really painful for me to hear that. If you do that again, I'm going to leave the room.” Or you get to make your own boundaries. They may be physical boundaries where you leave. They may be emotional boundaries where you don't go to them and you don't share with them if they can't hold space for you compassionately and respectfully. If you're an adult, you can choose to set as many boundaries as hard or as strong, as light as you need. Some people set boundaries with their family members. Like, “You can't come here without announcing yourself. You must let us know first. You can't say those things about me or I'm going to leave.” Or you may, again, you don't even have to say them out loud. If they're really toxic, you may say to them, “I'm not going to see you anymore if you keep acting like this towards me and my family. I can no longer put myself through that.” You get permission. We don't get to choose our family, but you don't have to see them either if they're really unhealthy for you. You may want to get some therapy around it and have the help of a clinician to help you navigate what's a right boundary for you. Everybody's different. Someone said, “I get really bad depression during the holidays and people have expectations for me to be happy.” Well, that's their lane. You don't have to act or be any way. Be kind, be compassionate, but do the best you can. It's your lane. You got to just do the best you can with what you have. So, again, I think that's a really big part of this, is really take care of you because that's your job. One thing actually, before we finish up, let me mention, it's no one else's job to make us feel better either. I know a lot of this today is going to feel like a lot of hard truths, but I promise you, there is so much liberation that comes from this. It's a hard pill to swallow, but it's still a really, really good pill. It's a good pill. It's a helpful pill. And so, it's not other people's job to make us joyful on Christmas either. That's our job. I'll tell you a story, when I was really a young adult, I think it was quite shocking to me that when you're a kid, everyone throws you a big party. And when you're an adult, it's not as big of a deal. And I used to get really offended that people didn't throw me a massive party until I was like, “Wait, it's really not their job.” And so, I started doing it for myself, and I have no shame about it. If I know I want to feel special on my birthday, I always organize something really special for myself. For the last three years, except for the year of COVID, I always rent-- you guys, probably know this. I rent an RV and I invite my three best girlfriends and I have a party for myself, and I'm not ashamed about it. I'm happy to celebrate myself. A If you are feeling like other people's job is to bring you joy on Christmas, I would say, no, bring yourself joy. Buy yourself a gift. Make your special meal you want to have. Treat yourself and shower yourself with the joy that you want to feel. That's a huge liberation, a huge freedom. Such a gift. Okay. So, that's it. That's how you set boundaries. You get to set them. It's your lane. You get to decide. But other people are allowed to have their feelings about it. And that's okay. That doesn't mean you're bad. They can even tell you you're bad, and that doesn't mean you're bad. They can say, “I don't like you,” and you don't think you're doing the right thing and they get to have their opinion, it doesn't make it a fact. This is hard work. I am not going to lie, I am still working on this. I'm still learning from this. I still have to practice it every single day. So, be gentle and remind yourself, this is a journey. This is not a destination that you're like, “Yay, I'm great with boundaries.” It will be something you'll have to keep practicing. But the holidays are the perfect time to practice them. It's so important. My loves, you probably have lots of questions about this. Do go over to social media. I'll leave links in the bio. If you want to send me questions, I do a live Q and A every second and fourth Monday of the month at 12 o'clock Pacific Standard Time. So, I'm happy to answer your questions there. Have a beautiful day. Happy 2021. I will be seeing you in 2022, holy macaroni, but I can't wait. I'm actually really pumped about Your Anxiety Toolkit next year. I'm going to put a ton more effort into it. That's where I want my attention to be next year. So, sending you love. Have a wonderful day, and I'll talk to you soon. Oh no, wait. Before we finish up, what was I thinking? It is time for the review of the week. This is from IsaacRThorne, and they said: “Love this show and I look forward to it every Friday.” Sorry, Isaac, I nearly missed you here. “No matter what you struggle with, there's more than one episode where your mouth will drop open, your eyes will grow wide, and you'll shout: “That's totally me!” Isaac, this is the best review ever. It just brings me so much joy. “Your mouth will drop open, your eyes will grow wide, and you'll shout, “That's totally me!” So, I hope this episode was that for you. Thank you so much for your wonderful review. Please, if you don't want to give me any gift of the world, it would be to leave me a review on the iTunes app. Thank you so much for your reviews. They bring me joy, but they also help us reach more people. So, thank you, thank you, thank you so much. We are going to give a free pair of Beats headphones to one lucky reviewer when we hit a thousand reviews. We're on our way. Please go and leave a review. It would be the best, best, best gift you could give me. Have a wonderful day, everybody. And now I officially say, have a wonderful day and I will see you in the New Year.

In this episode, Bryan Guzski, Director of the Orthopaedic Residency Program at the University of Rochester Medical Center, and Tim Reynolds, Clinical Assistant Professor of Anatomy & Physiology at Ithaca College, talk about their work on Movers & Mentors. Today, Bryan and Tim talk about their book, Movers & Mentors, and they get the opportunity to be the interviewers for a portion of the episode. Why is it important to have mentors? Hear about the motivation behind the book, some surprising interviews they've done, the value of having a team, finding your ‘why', and choosing when you say ‘yes', all on today's episode of The Healthy, Wealthy & Smart Podcast.   Key Takeaways “From an entrepreneurial standpoint, from a business standpoint, your partner is everything.” “Invest in [yourself] and take care of [yourself], physically and mentally, so that you can take care of your patients better.” “Challenge yourself to step beyond your comfort zone, because the benefits of that can be significant if you're willing to try.” “Find a mentor and don't fear or stray away from the imposter syndrome. Use that as fuel.” “If you never ask the question, the answer is always no.” “Trying to do it all will keep you small.” “You have to really only say yes to things that align to your values.” “Take a step back, know who you are, know your values, know what your individual mission statement is.” “He who knows others is wise.

I'm happy to have you guys on to talk about movers and mentors. So welcome.   00:11 Thank you, Karen, thank you for having us today. We're sharing this sit down chat with you.   00:15 This is great, Karen, thank you so much.   00:17 Well, thank you guys for including me in your book with over 70 Other pretty illustrious folks in the Movement Science physical therapy world. So let's start with the basic question that I'm sure a lot of listeners want to know. What is the why behind the book?   00:40 Yeah. So Karen, Tim and I were going through residency orthopedic residency together. Back in 2015. We both graduated from Ithaca College in 2014. And we both entered into a residency program at ethika are in Ethica, in 2015. And as we were going through the coursework there, and kind of taking different classes and really kind of immersed in the PT literature and physical therapy, space and various different content. We started noticing a lot of reoccurring names and reoccurring themes. And so, you know, different names like Tim Flynn, Josh Cleveland, surely sermon, Stuart McGill, you know, all these all these names that, you know, names in our rehab space that I've done a lot of really cool things and have put out a lot of different research that that, you know, we follow to this day. So we started noticing those names. And Tim and I were also reading a book by Timothy Ferriss called Tools of Titans at the time. And we really liked that book. And we enjoyed it. We got a lot out of it. He interviews people like, you know, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Oprah Winfrey. So various different industries and various different spaces. But we like the model that book and we started to ask ourselves, well, I wonder how, you know, individuals and movers and shakers within our industry would answer questions that we have. So fast forward two years. That was 2017 2018 at that point, and Tim and I started putting together a list of questions and a list of names. And at that point, you know, we kind of we kind of took it from there. And Tim has a little bit more info on how we how we came up with the names.   02:29 Yeah, so it's one of those things that we could have written a 5000 page book in regards to the movers and shakers within the physical therapy industry. And I think one of the most important things that Brian I have tried to stress is that this is a living project. This is not a one and done situation where there are movers and shakers that are currently developing and changing the practice. And so I think that's one of those things that, yes, there are people within the pages that I'm that are, we're happy to have there. But at the same time, there's so many other people would want to reach out to, and we look forward to have the opportunity to potentially talk to those individuals in the future, and are excited to see how does the profession change in the next five to 10 years and who are going to come up and literally shake the industry that we have the opportunity to be part of. And so as we started to go about this, like Brian said, we're diving into this literature, I had the opportunity to do spine fellowship after doing my orthopedic residency. And so the amount of Tim Flynn articles that I've read over the past three years was obnoxious. And so we started to make this almost like PT Dream Team, if you would, where we said okay, from, from a literature standpoint, who do we do we invest ourselves into a lot of, and like Brian mentioned, John John Childs, and we have Josh Cleveland. And then we have Tim Flynn, and the surely SARM and Gwendolyn Joel, there's these names that we have read multiple articles from and so kind of selfishly, we put together this list of people that we would really appreciate reaching out to, because we've been so invested in their in their literature over the past several years. And then from there, we kind of spread our net a little wider, because we had to see who's moving the industry from a clinical practice standpoint, right. So not necessarily from an academic or research standpoint, but from clinical practice. And who's moving it in regards to social media influencers? Because as someone who works in academia and works with the up and coming physical therapy generation, those are the people that they're following on Instagram and on Twitter, and so they're moving and shaking the industry in that format. And we looked at who's been guest speakers at recent conferences and who's putting out podcasts and how He was really trying to have the opportunity to get our profession to move in a positive direction. And so from there, we created this sort of master list, we reached out to all of them, and some have the opportunity to participate, which we're super thankful for. Some respectfully declined based on the fact that they had other stuff going on. But I think one of the things to remember, Brian is sort of given us timeframe, this was right pre pandemic, that we started to reach out to all these individuals. And what's been such a blessing is that we've been able to cast a wide net across multiple different countries across multiple different professions. But at the same time, we reach out to people in Australia, and there's Australian wildfires. And so we're trying to really respect individual's personal physical well being while navigating global pandemic while trying to also conduct interviews. And so it took us a little over two and a half years to be able to accumulate everything and be able to put everything out into a book format. But I'm super thankful to have those people within the pages. And like I said, I'm excited to have the opportunity to reach out to more in the future.   06:14 And so it takes, you know, a couple of years to get all this together. How did the two of you kind of keep the momentum going? Number one, because that's hard. And then number two, how did you kind of kind of temper your excitement and your expectations? Because I know, I'm the kind of person who's like, let's just get it done. Let's go, go go. But here, you know, you've really taken your time, over two plus years. So can you talk a little bit about that?   06:52 Yeah, I think from the outset, Tim and I both thought, I will send out some emails, you know, we'll get a handful of responses. It'll be a cool book, maybe we'll sell to maybe, you know, five, including our siblings, and parents, that sort of thing. And it really from the first batch of emails that we sent out, you know, Tim and I were really, every time we got a response, we would text each other, shoot each other an email immediately, Hey, Peter O'Sullivan responded, or David Butler responded, or Karen Litzy responded, you know, this is awesome. Like, we're actually doing this thing. So I think it you know, you spoke to momentum, Karen. And that's one thing that Tim and I, you know, we've never really hit a point where we were at a lack of that, or hit a dull moment, if you will. Because every time we got we did another interview, or we got another email, or we set up a, you know, maybe a podcast, it was definitely adding fuel to the fire. And, you know, they kept us pretty engaged and pretty excited throughout the whole thing. So, yeah, I mean, to I think if you asked us when we first sent out our emails in 2018, hey, you know, this is you're going to publish this in 2021, we'd say, No, it's going to be next year. And then life happens and pandemics happen and several other things. And, you know, it turned into a two and a half year project. But you know, it's been a lot of fun the whole time. And Tim and I still are still excited about it and excited about about the future, too.   08:16 And I think that's one of the things. There's kind of like Christmas every single time we had a response because it was super cool. You send out these, these emails, or you give a phone call to people that you've literally have had as your mentor from afar for years. And it's like, oh, my gosh, I cannot wait to have the opportunity to sit down. Like Peter, I saw that I've watched a lot of Peter softened videos from pain science standpoint, from spine fellowship work. And having the opportunity to sit down with Peter resolve them for an hour and 15 minutes was like, amazing. I was super stoked. And so so all those opportunities to talk to these people definitely continue to keep flame burning. And at the same time you talk about how do we sort of balance that, that excitement and try not to do too much too quickly. Brian and I have known each other for years, this has been such an amazing project to be able to find a partner that you want appreciate and to after two and a half years don't hate. So I think that's like a really good thing. And I think we balance each other out very well, where we're both skilled in a variety different formats. And then at the same time, after reading your draft manuscript, probably like five times through and through, you really do not want to read one more time. And there's points where we're like, I think it's good. I think we just just push it out, call it a day. And then Brian could probably agree that I'd say well, let's just read through it one more time, and then you catch one or two small mistakes. And so I think it's one of those things that just finding the right person that's willing to invest and stay motivated to push you and challenge you From an entrepreneurial standpoint, from a business standpoint, your partner is is everything. And so I think that's been one of the blessings that we've had this for this project.   10:11 Yeah, I love it, I think that's great advice is to have that person who complements you. Right and because you don't want to have just like a yes person, but instead you want something that's going to complement you and push you in, in a positive direction. And, and I will second the Peter O'Sullivan, he is just what a nice person and giving and charitable and gosh, I had an interview with him at CSM a number of years ago. And I had to ticket it. Because it was live at CSM. And we actually had to ticket it so that only 25 people could go and I it was only for students. And by the end of the interview, he was laying on the ground, you know, students and stuff. It was just so it was such a great experience, because he's just one of those very kind of electric personalities.   11:08 Definitely. very warm, very electric.   11:10 Yeah. Were there any interviews that you did that surprised you?   11:20 Um, in   11:21 a, in any way that doesn't have to be good or bad. Just surprise you because perhaps the persona that this person has, whether it be their research, social media clinical that you thought they had, and then when you interviewed them? It it surprised you?   11:46 Yeah, I would say. Obviously, when you when you interview over 75 individuals, you get a variety of different responses, you talk to a variety of different personas, devided different characteristics. And I think going into it, knowing the background of someone's, I use the metaphor of like the front cover of a book, we all have like front cover worthy attributes or accomplishments. And then it's like, well, what's on the inside of those pages. And so we see everybody's bio, and I've been on X, Y, and Z shows or published this many papers and, and so we see all that stuff. But we never really hear some of those people talk or talk personally about some of their successes and some of their failures. And so I think everybody had the opportunity to have some elements of surprise. But I think what was also cool as Brian, I made up this master list, and it was basically just based off of accomplishments and achievements, or their influence on the profession. And so, for instance, I was looking through and like talking to Michael Radcliffe, who is who is a researcher that I've read your research, but I, I never really pictured what you would look like. And I never really perceived that you would have such amazing responses within this book. So I think it was those individuals that I might not have been so invested from like falling on social media, or have watched your YouTube videos, and really getting a chance to know them in an hour, hour and a half. Those were the interviewers that really caught me by surprise, but at the same time, I think I walked away with so much more, because there is so much unknown that they're willing to offer me. Um, and so I think I think that was the most exciting part or the most surprising part for me.   13:42 Yeah, I think kind of, because of the types of questions that we asked, we really intimidate joke about this, if we want to know, you know, surely Simon's recommendations for motor control. We can find that online. We can we can Google that. Right? If we want to know, you know how David Butler opens his pain talks, we can probably find that somewhere and explain pain or explain pain Supercharged. But you know, how Heidi genetica who's the CEO of versio Excuse me? Why pte how she structures her day. And what her favourite failure is it those are things that you can't find you can't find that in textbook you can't find that online. So the types of questions that we asked really opened, opened it up to knowing these people from a different perspective, which we thought was pretty cool. I'd say that one of the individuals that really stands out in my mind, Tim actually did this interview, but I transcribe it so I got to listen to everything, literally word for word was Stanley Paris, who's one of the founding fathers of orthopaedic manual physical therapy and then the United States and North America for that matter. And I mean, this guy is is just incredible from sailing around the world to swimming the English Channel to founding St. Augustine to being, you know, a founder and president of various organizations like the guy has done it all to owning a winery or several wineries. I believe he's just, you know, a jack of all trades. And I think listening to that interview, I was like, you know, he's, I think 83 Now, and my jaw was dropped to some of the some of his answers and some of his experiences. So that was, that was really cool. But, I mean, we had so many so many great interviews, Jeff Moore was a terrific interviewer. Peter O'Sullivan, like we talked about Kelly star it gave, you know, exceptional answers. So we were really, really lucky. And, you know, positively surprised, I should say, surprise, in a positive way with with all of our guests.   15:55 Yeah. And it it, it does kind of, like an education for you. Right,   16:02 definitely. Yeah. 110% Yeah, I mean, it was one of those things. I had the opportunity to speak with Michael shacklock. Um, and such a well spoken. Such a thoughtful, mindful person. And back in residency, Brian Knight did some research with neurodynamics and your mobilizations. As I was like, Oh, my gosh, like, you're the Dude, that was like, given us all this information. And now we have the opportunity to actually speak to the source. So I think back to being like eight or nine years old, and have all these posters of Major League Baseball players up on the walls, and just like, thinking about how cool it was to have their pictures, and to think about what it would be like to play baseball with them. And now to be able to communicate with some of these movers and shakers within the industry, and have them be peers, and be able to carry out a conversation with them learn from us as much as we're learning from them in that conversation is just such a rewarding opportunity.   17:08 And do you feel like it has changed your clinical practice at all? How you are with patients? Did any of the answers or just even the interactions with some of these folks change the change the way you practice? Um,   17:24 I think yes. I would say I've slowed down, and I'm more intentional. Just based on a few, I guess, specific responses, but one that comes to mind is oh, shoot, pause. This might be a Karen, you might have to take this this out. And then wait,   17:48 wait, wait a mess up. Or 25? I   17:50 know. We were crushing it. Dude. Millet mark. I don't know. I want to say more. Mark Milligan. So we'll jump back in. Yes, I would say more mindful and intentional. And I've slowed down in my practice, one response, or several responses from Mark Milligan definitely kind of changed the way I think and operate within the clinic. And I've definitely tried to be more intentional and kind of think about my thinking a little bit more in the clinic from a specific, you know, tactical exercise prescription perspective, not so much. Because that wasn't really the focus of our book. But just, you know, Mark's mindset, and kind of his, his recommendation to all young professionals to really kind of invest in themselves and to take care of themselves mentally and physically so that you can take care of your patients better, I thought was really powerful. So yeah, I'd say, a little bit more intentional, focused, and I've slowed down.   19:00 Yeah. And I think sort of piggybacking off of what Brian was saying, less so about the actual clinical approach to what sort of treatments are you providing? And I think that was one of the the most exciting things about the book was we were not talking about what's your favorite three exercises for X y&z Because there's so much saturation, I'd say from a social media standpoint, which is great. I think that's one of the things that's challenging the profession, that anybody has the opportunity to put out content, and it's one of the curses of the profession that anybody has the opportunity to put out content. And so I think the opportunity for young graduates and PT students, and individuals interested in the Movement Science field that is sift through a lot of information to be able to find out what is truly valuable for them. And like Brian was saying, These are the answers questions that aren't necessarily within a textbook, but also probably not necessarily on people's social media channels also, right? No one really steps up to the plate and says, you know that one time when it took me three tries again to PT, school, Dad was really a good important point in time, my life, or, yeah, I remember when I failed the boards. Those are things that I think can really influence and the sort of career life changing for these individuals, who, as a current college professor, writing final exams, getting ready to watch by an influx of tears in my office in the next bout 48 hours, who perceive a failure as such a detriment to their potential growth, and well being as a person, I got a B plus on this test, all my friends got A's, I cannot necessarily navigate that situation. That's like conversation that I hear all the time. And so talking about how has things changed in my practice, I'm currently part time in the clinic, more time from an academia standpoint. So I think it's changed my communication opportunities, with the next generation, being able to literally use this book as an encyclopedia. And knowing the responses that people have given flipping to their name, and saying, I need you to read this chapter from Mike Reinhold, where he talks about becoming an expert, because you're not there yet. Because you shouldn't be there yet. Because you haven't gained clinical judgment and clinical experience. And it's going to be okay. But go read this come back in five minutes. And so I think that's how I've been able to sort of benefit from this, from this experience and how I've taken it influenced my own practice.   21:51 Excellent. And, and as a side note, Tim, the, my podcast episode coming out tomorrow, my podcast is with Silvia Zubaan. And she's a clinician 50% clinician 50% academia at St. Louis University in Washington, Washington University in St. Louis. Sure. And surely, sermons. Yeah. And it was a really nice conversation on how to navigate. She's been doing it for 15 years now. clinician and academia and academia. So it was a really nice, really wonderful conversation on how to navigate that those two worlds successfully and how to be vulnerable when you need to be and with whom, and because it can't always be great and perfect, like you just said. So if you have a chance, I would come out tomorrow, I would listen, I'm excited. Currently to edit this part out. I don't need to plug my own podcast within a podcast. He was a little self indulgent. But because you, you're kind of in a similar position. She's just been doing it for a lot longer.   23:10 That's awesome. I appreciate that. So   23:11 check it out tomorrow. It was really, like, such a good conversation. She's super cool. She should be in your next book. There. Yeah, like it. She's super cool. Yes, Silvia it's CZ you PP o n. Yeah. And she does some research and and she's written some papers and things like that, but she's super cool. Okay. So, um, is there anything? Before we sort of flipped this a little bit? Because I know you guys were like, Hey, would you like to expand on some of your answers, which, you know, is fine. So we'll flip this in, in a bit. And I'll have you guys host and I'll be your guest. But before we do that, is there anything else kind of about the process of of compiling and publishing the book, that you would love people to know, because it made such a big difference in your lives?   24:23 I think one of the blessings of our profession is the lat orality component to your growth as an entrepreneur, but also as a professional. We graduate with a clinical doctorate, or and this can be transcribed across multiple professions, but you go to school to be able to learn how to learn right and in our profession where you sit for a board certification, which gives us the opportunity to practice as a clinician within that. You can wear multiple different hats and I think what was nice with this is That title allowed for us to speak to a variety of different people and have this mutual commonality, which was physical therapy, or Movement Science or the treatment of individuals with certain pathologies. And I think this would never have happened if we didn't make ourselves vulnerable and uncomfortable. Because who are Brian and I? And why should we have the opportunity to talk to Karen Litzy? Or why should we have the opportunity to talk to David Butler? Or why should in so we had this idea, and it all stemmed from the courage to be able to reach out and ask because you never know, unless you try. And so I think sharing one of these thoughts with your listeners is, I think we all have dreams and aspirations that are slightly beyond our scope of practice. And sometimes we can limit that opportunity for us to navigate those ideas, because we are either potentially afraid of failure, or just don't know what the outcome is going to be. And so since that's an unfamiliar territory, we just assume, and therefore we never attempt. And so I think the one of the best things that I've learned from this is accepting failure for what it is, what's the worst that they're going to say? No, I do not want to be part of this, thank you for the opportunity. And the best thing that we could do is create a relationship, create a mentorship opportunity, and have sort of this professional friendship that stemmed from a cold call email. And so I would, I would recommend, at least my thoughts would be challenged, challenge yourself to step beyond your comfort zone, because the benefits of that can be significant if you're if you're willing to try.   27:02 Yeah, Brian, right. Yeah.   27:04 Yeah, I think there's some level of kind of normalization of failure and imposter syndrome within this book. And I think when you dive into it, and you dive into the responses, everyone has been there, everyone, I'm speaking to, you know, students, new graduates, young professionals here, but guess the message kind of spans anyone in any part of the PT space or industry with however many years of experience, you know, everyone's felt that level of imposter syndrome, or, or fear of failure, and the kind of ability to, to kind of push through that, overcome that and almost use that and leverage it to, to push further or overcome obstacles is really powerful. So I think of it like if you're ever kind of at the top of a mountain, in terms of, you know, imposter syndrome, if we look at it, like, like a curve or like a mountain, if you're at the top of it, then you know, what's really driving you and what's what's pushing you forward, if you're kind of somewhere along along the line on the slope, then you have some level of uncertainty, some level of fear, or some level level of imposter syndrome, and that's actually going to feel fuel you to learn more and be better be more effective. And again, one of the main themes of this book was finding a mentor and the importance of that and how valuable that can be in any, any track or any, you know, facet of our profession. So kind of find that person that's doing something similar or doing exactly what you want to be doing. And, you know, don't hesitate to reach out to them. Because we're in the, we're in the business of helping people and thankfully, we have a lot of professionals around us that that want to help other people but also want to help you know, students, young professionals, so don't hesitate to reach out. I think you'll be surprised with with, you know, the the feedback or the the return on that. So, definitely, definitely find a mentor and, you know, don't don't fear stray, stray away from the imposter syndrome use that as fuel.   29:20 Yes. And I will say I got a piece of advice several years ago from a fellow physical therapist, son. So her name's Cecily de Stefano. She's a physical therapist outside of DC. And we were in Chicago for a one night q&a With Lorimer Moseley. And the next day, we were walking around, she had her five year old six year old somewhere around there, young son with her, and she was sort of walking up ahead and he was walking Next to me, and he said this, Karen, would you like to have a play date? And I said, Well, I don't. I don't have any children. And he was like, no, just you. And I said, Oh, um, okay, well, I think we should probably ask your mom first. And then he gave me a great piece of advice. He said, Yeah, because if you never asked the question, the answer is always no. And I was like, and I said, that's the best piece of advice I've gotten in years, and you're like, five. So just to begin with what you guys said, If you never ask the question, the answer is always no. And I've never forgotten that, since he said that. And so now I just always add, ask the question, because the worst that can happen is it's no and so okay, you move on. But you never know. Unless you try. Okay, so true. So let's, uh, we'll start wrapping things up here. But now I, again, thank you for including me in this book. It's a real honor. So if you want if you guys have any questions to I guess I can expand upon or, you know, anything else that that may be? I don't know, you go ahead. Talk about being out of your comfort zone. Go ahead. And you asked me, I'll hand the mic over to you guys. And I'll see, we'll see what we can do here.   31:21 Sure. Karen, thank you, again, for being a part of this. I really liked your response. We were speaking about failure a little bit before. And I really liked your response on failure in the last comment, here you have, I'll read it right from the book, it says, failure has taught me to be more introspective to have an open mind to trust in others more. And to know that in the end, it will all work out the way it is supposed to. I was wondering if you could expand on the to trust in others more? Do you have a specific example that you're thinking of, or examples, or just, you know, have other people come in at really important times to help you out when you're, you know, in a in a, you know, event of a failure?   32:07 Well, I can't think of one person or one incident in particular, but what I will say is, I am personality type a driver. So someone who likes to get things done, who likes to be in the driver's seat who I don't need help, I don't need help, I can do it on my own, I can do it on my own. And as a result, I think that yeah, I've had failures, because I tried to do it all by myself. And it just doesn't work. You know. And so there's a great team building exercise called lost at sea. Google it, I won't go into detail as to what exactly it is. But you have to you fill out. They give you a list of things that maybe you need when you're lost at sea, and you fill them out what you think you would need from one to 15 or 16 or something like that. So you do it on your own. And then you you do it as a group? And then you find out, like, did you do better on your own? Or did you do better when you had someone helping you? And better meaning like, did you survive? lost at sea? Or were you eaten by sharks? Right? And time and time again, and the group that I did it with? Everybody did better with the group. Right? And so for me, and I learned that I took the Goldman Sachs 10,000 small business program, and it was part of that program. And the big part of that program is learning how to be part of a team and learning how to have people around you that make you better. And so I think my biggest failures came because I didn't ask for help. Because I always thought no, no, I can do this on my own, or I can handle this and quite frankly, I couldn't. And so it resulted in a failure resulted in a less than optimal outcome. It resulted in stress on me and and perhaps some mental and emotional anguish, when in fact, I could have just had a team around me ask for help. And that task probably would have been done better than if it's just me and so yeah, I always so when I said that line, I didn't have one particular person or event in mind, but rather that like sometimes you have to like suck it up, you know, and admit that you can't do things and it's okay. It's just part of life. Like I had interviewed a woman Her name's Stephanie Nikolaj and she said you know trying to do it all will keep you small and she's right. You know, you can it's hard to grow as a person as an entrepreneur as a clinician, my God if you just did everything I Your Own I mean, you'd be like, I don't know you'd stop growing from the day you graduated from college right from your PT program. So you you need the these people around you need people around you, who can lift you up and and make you a better person, a better clinician, a better entrepreneur, whatever it is. But you'll never be that evolved person if you're on your own, it's just impossible.   35:26 Yeah, I think, Karen, like the number of hats that you wear as a business owner, a podcast as a volunteer and advocate, right? You, you kind of need people like that in your ecosystem, and it for so many projects, and especially the bigger the project, it really does take a village, and you need people that specialize in certain aspects to come together as a team. You know, Tim and I have talked about this kind of checking, checking your ego at the door sometimes and just kind of leaving that, as you said, Karen, you know, kind of admit that you can't, you can't accomplish it all by yourself. So I that was a that was a really great answer. And, you know, I think you spoke to some of the points about being more introspective and having having an open mind as well.   36:09 Yeah, and being able to trust people, clearly, I have trust issues. But you know, I think finding like, like you guys said, like you found each other, you knew each other for many years, you have this really nice trust and bond. And I don't know, maybe it's like 20 years in New York has made me a cynical New Yorker or something. You know, but really finding those people that you can connect and trust that they have your back and you'll have theirs. I think it's really important.   36:37 I think, another question that I would have just to sort of elaborate on, obviously, we have a variety of individuals that are listening, right now clinicians, non clinicians, entrepreneurs, and one of the questions that we asked within the book is, what advice would you give to a smart driven college student or a young professional entering the quote unquote, real world? And I think one of the things that you mentioned, that was really valuable was that it is easy to say yes to everything, when you believe it will further your career, I would advise you to only say yes, the opportunities that align with your values and goals, as the saying goes, saying yes to one thing is saying no to something that might be a better fit. I think that's really powerful. Because I think we're in a society of more is better, or the perception that doing more is better. So knowing knowing who is listening to this and having the microphone if you would, for for a minute baseline question. Can you elaborate on that? Or if you had to give that sort of monumentous speech regarding that topic? I think that can be really valuable for a variety different people this?   37:48 Yeah. And I think that saying that saying yes to everything, or only saying yes to things that align with your values? I mean, yes, you have to really only say yes to things that align to your values. But I think that speaks to speak to that 30,000 foot view of society in general, and of social media and what we're seeing everyone else do, right, so you may scroll through your Instagram or Twitter, Facebook, Tik Tok, whatever it is, you're on. And you may say, Well, gosh, this person just, they wrote another article, or Gosh, this person speaking here, and they're doing this and they're starting an app, and they're, they've got a podcast, and how come I'm not doing all that? Should I be doing all of that, so I should be set? Why, you know, I need to be doing XY and Z and, and, you know, you've got that, that FOMO disease, you know, your fear of missing out, and then you bombard yourself with things that you think you should be doing because other people are doing them. But it's not even something you believe in, but you think you should believe in it? Because Because other people in the profession are doing it and look at how many followers they have, or, or look at all the success and I use that in quotation marks because we don't really know someone's true success out on social media, right? Because we only put the good stuff on social media, you're not going to put the shitty stuff on social media, right? And so I think this saying yes to everything. I think a lot of it is based on societal pressures, what you're seeing on social media, maybe what a colleague or someone that graduated with you like, oh my gosh, they already started their own practice. And I didn't do that yet. So I guess I have to do that. And I have to say yes to this, that the other thing and it's, I think you really have to especially now like take a step back. Know who you are, know your values know, know your what your individual mission statement is, right? I know you guys said you have a mission statement for your book, but I would challenge everyone like you have your own mission statement as whether it's a clinician or you're in academia. But really you have to know deep down what your values are, what you're willing to take and what you're not willing to take, and, and really know yourself in a very deep, meaningful way. And I'm not saying I know myself in a deep meaningful way yet, but I'm trying, right? It doesn't mean and again, it doesn't mean you have to know that. So again, that's another thing people think, Oh, I have to do this now. But you know, in researching a talk for CSM that I'm actually doing with how do you Janemba my, the part of my talk is increasing your self awareness as an entrepreneur, and how do you do that, and I came across a really great quote, he who knows others, as wise, He who knows himself as enlightened by louts Lao Tzu, la Otz, you I hope I'm pronouncing that correctly. And I saw that quote, and I thought, Oh, that's so perfect, right. Because as, as clinicians, and as physical therapists, our job is to get to know the patient in front of us or the student in front of us or whoever it is in front of you that oftentimes, I think we give away big parts of ourselves without taking it back and looking inward.   41:16 And so you kind of get this like, drain on your empathy, and your energy goes on as the day goes on. And I think that happens a lot. And in these kind of giving professions that we are in, whether you're a professor or a clinician, or even a researcher, right, you're going to give all of your energy to that. And then you see you're always looking outwardly all day. And do you take the time to come back at the end of the day and look at yourself inward? And say, Well, what, what am I doing? Like, why am I doing this? Am I doing it for the likes? Or to get more followers? Or like, what is your goal? Right? And so I think that's kind of where that saying no to things comes in, if you know, your why behind what why you're doing things. It will make it easier for you to say yes, and to say no, because it's going to align with with who you are. But that takes time, you know, so as a new as a student, or a new professional, maybe you do have that all figured out. And if you do awesome, come on the podcast, let's talk about it. How did you do it, but you know, if it takes time, and you have to kind of find your groove and, and really know, where you want your career to be headed. And some people do know that right off the bat, I didn't. But it doesn't mean that other people don't have a very clear path of where they want their career in life to go. You know. And, and there's obviously that changes here and there. But I think that's what I meant by that, quote is looking for those opportunities is to really know yourself, and what your How much are you willing to take? How much capacity do you have for XYZ? And if you don't have the capacity for it, then don't do it? Because it's going to be done like half assed, you know, and nobody wants   43:19 nothing. That's great. Yeah, great advice. Yeah, finding, finding your why and staying true to your why and finding things that that sort of line up with that to allow for you to not have that emotional, physiological draining. If you would find things that fill your cup not not dump your cup out.   43:37 Yeah, exactly. Exactly. Yeah. It's a nice way to put it.   43:42 Um, yeah. So Karen, thank you so much for, you know, kind of expanding and elaborating on some of those. You know, as Tim and I mentioned in the, in the beginning, I think when we were chatting probably before we were recording, Tim, and I want to probably get a podcast started at some point in the future. And, you know, we'd love for you to come on and be one of our guests, so we can talk more about this stuff.   44:06 Yeah, I'd be happy to. And now before we wrap things up here, where can people find you guys? Where can they get the book? Let's go. Go ahead. The floor is yours.   44:18 So we have a website. The website is movers and mentors calm on there is all of our social media information and links directly to Amazon where you can find both our Kindle version and paperback version. If you have questions, comments, please tag us send us stuff on social media. Tim and I love that we you know, we've been very fortunate we've had really engaged you know, an engaged audience up until this point and so you know, we're looking or looking for more of that and shoot us an email if you want and with with comments or feedback. We love to hear that as well.   45:00 Great. And how about where can people find you on social media? Oh, yeah. Yeah,   45:08 it's in those that thing tendons got our handles there.   45:11 Yeah. So my, you can message me on Instagram. But Tim Reynolds DPP would be my thing. That's my Twitter routes, and would be my Instagram. And we'll send you that Karen. So you can sort of tag along for the podcast. But I like Brian was saying, I think the opportunity to interact with our, with our audience is one of the most exciting things, getting somebody that reading the book from South America and is so excited to receive the book is one of the highlights of our day. And I think having the opportunity to have our our audience also send us Who do they think should be the movers and shakers in our potential upcoming volumes of this would be something that we'd really appreciate. There's so many people within the profession that we do not know of yet. And so obviously, appreciate having their insight and input in that as well.   46:08 So I'm at at Bryan, Bryan, Gaskey, and Instagram and then we're at movers and mentors, both on Instagram and Twitter.   46:16 Perfect. And all of that will be in the show notes at podcasts at healthy, wealthy, smart, calm. So before we wrap up, what is question I asked everyone, what advice would you give to your younger self? So let's say fresh out of PT school at Ithaca? What advice would you give yourself?   46:36 I would tell myself, stay curious. Because I find that when I'm curious and asking questions, that means I'm engaged. And I think engagement. If it aligns with your your purpose and your passion, then you have kind of all three things in alignment. And that, you know, lends itself to a happy, fruitful and hopefully, you know, effective career.   47:05 Excellent. Tim, go ahead.   47:08 And I would say sort of piggybacking off what we were talking about earlier, Aaron would be continue to search for the why. And it's okay not to know. And I think that's one of those things where finding your why and staying true to the values is one of those things I'll add to life journey, continue to search for that throughout the lifespan. But I think actively checking back to is this lining up with my Why would be one of the things that I would want to do, either from a journal reflecting standpoint, or just from like a quarterly check in. But then also, the acceptance of it's okay, not to know not necessarily not to know what your y is, but not to know certain things in part of your life. Um, and I think being 20 to 2324 and try to navigate your 20s. And I'm thinking that everybody in that sort of FOMO aspect is having the solutions and answers. And it is okay that you do not know yet you are enough, you will be enough, challenge yourself and have the opportunity to allow for that growth and expansion.   48:23 You guys, that is great advice. Thank you so much for coming on the podcast and sharing your book. Again. It's movers and mentors, and it's available on amazon.com. Go to their website, go to the social media. Everything again is that podcast out healthy, wealthy, smart, calm. One click, we'll take you to any thing you need for both Brian and Tim. So thank you so much, guys, for coming on.   48:49 Thanks for having us, Karen. Yeah, thank you, Karen.   48:53 Pleasure and everyone. Thanks so much for listening. Have a great couple of days and stay healthy, wealthy and smart.
