I invite you all to rock your body and mind in this week's episode with two world-leading experts on healing chronic pain, Dr. Matt Cook and Dr. John Lieurance. Dr. Matt Cook runs BioReset Medical, while Dr. John Lieurance runs Advanced Rejuvenation. Both of which are incredible facilities if you're looking for next-level healing for chronic illnesses. This recording coincided with my week-long procedures at BioReset Medical. The three of us were able to get to the nitty-gritty of the cutting-edge therapies they swear by, including ozone injections, stem cell peptides, PRP, the Weberneedle laser, and many more. They also share their extensive knowledge on the common causes of pain and how the body's internal landscape sends out different pain signals.  I'm feeling like a new man after the miraculous work executed by Dr. Matt Cook's team, so it's an honor to share this experience with the community. I'm no stranger to chronic pain, and I know there are millions out there looking for solutions they won't find in their allopathic doctors' office (God knows, I've tried).

Do you fear sounding like a beginner? Do you have a desire to have stronger content? Review your show. On this episode, I want to help you learn to review and critique your own podcast in order to make your content stronger. WHY WE REVIEW Reviewing your content on a regular basis is critical to your improvement. Learning how to critique yourself will help you sound more prepared, more organized and more like a true, professional broadcaster. When I was beginning my broadcasting career, I feared people would see me as someone simply trying to play the part of a professional. I didn't have any idea what I was doing, let alone how to get better. I wanted to have more credibility. How could I get there? Over the past 30 years, I learned to review and critique my own show. I worked with a variety of coaches, consultants, articles, conferences and mentors. They all taught me a little something. MY START My broadcasting career began while I was in college studying for my architecture degree. What started as something fun to make college money suddenly turned into a career. Here I was, a college kid studying architecture, trying to pretend I was a professional broadcaster. I had no idea what I was doing. It was all trial and error. Now, 30 years later, I am trying to help podcasters avoid the growing pains I suffered. I was learning by diving head first into the deep end and quickly figuring out how to swim. Over the years, the mistakes I made were plenty. In radio, on-air talent learn to be better through a process called the aircheck session. These are some of the most painful meetings you could have … if the coach doesn't have a teacher's heart. My aircheck sessions were typically run by my Program Director of the radio station. For a typical session, I would bring a recording of my show. We would listen to the show together. Then, my Program Director would tell me everything I'm doing wrong. How would you like to sit in a weekly meeting where your boss tells you everything you're doing wrong? This is also where I learned how to be an effective coach by learning what NOT to do. Over the next week, I would try to improve. We would go through the entire process again the following week. SOAR WITH YOUR STRENGTHS Once I was able to find a Program Director who had my interests and growth at heart, we began working on my strengths. We would find the areas that were strong and try to do more of that. This became a much more enjoyable process. Over the years, I learned to recognize those strengths in myself. My show continuously got stronger. I was then able to critique myself on a regular basis. By sharing my scars and battle wounds, along with the processes, tips and skills I have learned over the years, I can help you fast track the road to great podcasting. Over the past 3o years, I have been coaching radio talent with their shows. I have helped many radio shows reach the top of the ratings. My show has also been at the top for years. This success is built on a quality review and critique of each show. When you learn to recognize the powerful parts of your episode, they will naturally become part of your content over time. I have developed a Show Review Worksheet to help you review your show. You can download the worksheet for free on my website at www.PodcastTalentCoach.com/reviewworksheet. Here are the questions included on the Podcast Talent Coach Show Review Worksheet. These questions will help you review and refine your show. QUESTIONS - GOALS What did you hope to accomplish on this show? Did you succeed? Part of your show prep should have included a goal and focus for the episode. Did you accomplish that goal? To create more engagement with your listeners, your show needs to take the next step. Where do you take your content from here? How do you continue the conversation? Did you succeed? How did you make the audience care? Engagement is created when you stir emotion. “Why” is much more powerful than "how". How did you make them care during this episode? OH WOW Where were the "oh wow" moments? You do not need to make your entire show amazing. You simply need a few memorable spots. Create a couple moments to make your listener say "oh wow". This is how you get your listeners to share your content. Find the "oh wow" moments in your episode. Where were the surprises? Surprise and delight. That will keep listeners returning week after week. Surprise will bring a smile to your listener's face. This is where your information becomes entertainment. Where were your surprises? What were the powerful words you used? Words are powerful when you make the right choice. Selecting smart words help draw pictures in the mind of your listener. Thick and lush evoke two different emotions. Sad and devastated spark two different visions. Find the words in your episode that jump out of the speakers. THE GOOD STUFF What did you like about the show? When you are interested, you are interesting. What parts impressed you? What was memorable about the show? Find the one thing that people will remember. Your listener will not remember the entire show. What is your one thing? What worked? Did you try something new in this episode? Did it work? Push yourself to create new content in every episode. Then evaluate that content to see if it was a success. What could have been better? This is the other end of the previous questions. Where can you improve? WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME How did you position the story from the listener's point of view? We often talk about "what's in it for me". Did you position your content from your listener's point of view? How did you include the listener, making them part of the story? Great marketing is more like a mirror. Reflect the life of your listener. Make them forget they are listening to a podcast by putting them in the story. Where did you include your listener? THE TOPIC At what points did you introduce and reset the show/topic? Resetting the show topic is important to maintain the flow of the show. If the theme of the show is improvement, and you have a few different topics that support that theme, reset before each topic. Help support the overall concept by reintroducing the theme that ties it all together. Where was that apparent in the show? How did it appear you were prepared for every element? Keep your notes close as you record your content. Did you sound prepared with every piece of information you presented? RELATIONSHIPS What did you reveal about yourself to help foster the relationship with the audience? We talk about doing business with those we know, like and trust. Where did you reveal things to allow your listeners to begin to know you? What stories did you tell? Stories are the best way to allow listeners to get to know you. When you tell stories, you reveal your thoughts, beliefs and values. Find the stories in your episode. Learn to recognize when stories can be included. What details did you use that were spectacular and visual? Details help stories come to life. Specifics make the story more believable. This is similar to powerful language. Where did you use vivid details? Where did you use active language? (walking instead of walked, eating, not ate) Listeners can see active language. You can see "walking". It is difficult to see "walked". If you want your content to come to life in the theater of the mind, use active language. Find some in your episode. MAKE IT BETTER What crutches do you use that need to be removed? Crutches are words you use too often to fill time. These are typically phrases you use when you cannot think of anything else to say. Where do you hear crutches in your episode? What is your plan to make tomorrow better? Find three things in the 19 questions that you can work on this week. NEXT WEEK Next week, you will learn how to develop a goal for your episode. This will help you create a strong call-to-action and get your listener to engage. Be here for that.

An Unusual Path to Landing Art Commissions with Leisa Collins (#110)

Lots of artists make a good living, or at least a significant part of their income, from commissions. The standard commission process is something we don't question, but what would happen if you turned the whole commission process on its head? In this episode I talk with Leisa Collins, who started her art business by targeting people whose homes she wanted to paint. After a few failed attempts at marketing her work, her career as a house portraitist took off. To date she has painted more than 2,500 house portraits and has a waiting list for commissions. She no longer has to send direct mail, which you'll hear about, but maintains that the personal relationships with clients are paramount. Leisa shares her quest across the country to paint a house in all 50 states, that following up with prospects results in 85% more sales for her, and how she has partnered with realtors to provide closing gifts for their clients. First posted: artbizsuccess.com/commissions-collins-podcast Highlights “I exchanged my art for everything.” Leisa's adventurous art journey. (2:17) Combining a love of art with architecture and advertising it in effective ways. (4:36) The details of direct mailings that lead to collectors. (9:45) Hand selecting the demographic you want to work with. (13:05) The business process and price range of Leisa's non-traditional approach to commissioned art. (16:10) Selecting, photographing and painting houses in all 50 states. (22:26) Creating 250 pieces a year means Leisa gets two or three new clients a week—and has to keep careful track of them all. (30:50) Selecting images, marketing and selling a book. (36:50) The importance of following up with prospective clientes—without being too pushy. (39:31) The details of Leisa's spreadsheets help her maintain a personal relationship with her clients. (45:10) Creating relationships with clients through realtor closing gifts and phone calls. (48:51) A look at what is coming up next in Leisa's very busy holiday schedule.

I get two or three new clients a week.” — Leisa Collins “If you love what you're doing, it's not so much like work.” — Leisa Collins Guest Bio Leisa Collins, a native of New Zealand, has carved a niche for herself as an acclaimed architectural artist.Eventually settling in the United States, Leisa became interested in the people and cultures that defined architecture throughout the country's history. She was inspired to drive from coast to coast, creating original paintings of homes in every state. She selected 650 of these works of art—as well as the fascinating stories behind many of them—to share with readers in her new book, Hand-Painted Homes: An Architectural Artist's Pen and Watercolor Journey Across America (May 2021). This coffee table book explores architectural styles in all fifty states, plus the nation's capital. In 2013, Leisa established the Leisa Collins Historic Preservation Award to pay tribute to exceptional individuals committed to saving and restoring old buildings across the country. Her work has been featured in publications such as The New York Times, Huffington Post and Los Angeles Times.

The only reason for canceling a Sprint is when the Sprint Goal becomes obsolete. The Sprint Goal dictates which changes are allowed and whether the Sprint still matters. That's how vital the Sprint Goal is when you use Scrum.

We were expecting this episode to be a great one and it did not disappoint.  The B&H Photography Podcast team welcomes photographer Lester Sloan and his daughter, author Aisha Sabatini Sloan, to discuss their new book, Captioning the Archive: A Conversation in Photographs and Text.  The book is a conversation about photography and photojournalism, but more a conversation between father and daughter, one that had been taking place for years, for a lifetime, and finally put to print.     Selecting images from his long career as a Newsweek staff photographer, as well as his personal projects dating back to 1960's Detroit, Sloan and Sabatini Sloan provide extensive “captions” to these images, offering not only details about past events but personal reflections from both of their perspectives. The book is also an intensive contextualization of the images with the benefit of hindsight and of insight. Backstories from a life in photojournalism, of photos of Nelson Mandela, of David Hockney, of Steven Spielberg, of political turmoil and day-to-day assignments, and the right questions posed to fill in the deeper meaning around a photo taken.   “I took pictures of everything that happened.” – Lester Sloan   Unfortunately, in the weeks before we recorded this episode, Sloan's archive of original slides and negatives was damaged in a flood.  The damage to some of his most important originals is extensive and a Kickstarter campaign has been established in an attempt to repair, restore, and digitize the collection. Please consider donating. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Lester Sloan began his photography career as a cameraman for the CBS affiliate in Detroit, then worked as a staff photographer in Newsweek magazine for twenty-five years, documenting the 1967 uprising in Detroit, the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the OJ Simpson trial. Lester was a contributing essayist with NPR's “Weekend Edition” the recipient of the prestigious Neiman Fellowship and was the on-set photographer for Spike Lee's 1996 film, Get on the Bus. Aisha Sabatini Sloan is a writer whose work has appeared in anthologies such as Dear America, Truth to Power, and The Paris Review. Her 2017 book, Dreaming of Ramadi in Detroit, was chosen as the winner of the “1913 Open Prose Contest”, she is the recipient of a 2020 National Endowment for the Arts Award and this year she received the National Magazine Award for her essays in the Paris Review.   Guests: Lester Sloan and Aisha Sabatini Sloan Photograph © Lester Sloan

Buying stocks is not something that should be taken lightly. Selecting which companies to buy can make or break you as an investor. Before you buy shares in a company, it is essential to thoroughly investigate that company's mission, management, goals, outlook, and fundamentals. Think of it this way: you would never buy 100% of a company without thorough due diligence, and, likewise, you shouldn't buy a small percentage of a company without doing the same. You can do your due diligence by using an investing checklist, so you can reduce your risk and maximize your profits over time.

In this episode of K9 Conservationists, Kayla Fratt talks about considerations when choosing a conservation detection dog, sourcing a dog, and screening a dog. Episode suggestion: “Don't sacrifice clarity at the altar of generosity” Call to action: Join pateron! Discussed in this Podcast: Considerations: Make a list of your must-haves from a lifestyle perspective to help which type of dog works best for you. This can be anything from breed type, grooming requirements, size, etc. You should also make a list of “nice to have” and “bonus points”. These are types of things that aren't a must have, but are still of some importance to you. These are usually aesthetic type desires. You also need to consider your work lifestyle, whether your dog can handle being off leash around wildlife, water, other dogs, people, etc. Consider if you'd want to do outreach work at events with your dog. Would a social dog be more ideal, etc. Travel is something to consider. A dog that thrives on routine may not be best for conservation work. Most trainers in this field prefer dogs that have a high drive for toys Consider what kind of dog you like to work with; high drive, low drive, preference for food reinforcement, preference for toy reinforcement, low energy or high energy personality, etc. Consider the detail level of the work you want to do It's very important to consider your skill set and experience with dog handling Links Mentioned in the Episode: Pandemic Puppy - Where to Get a Puppy Pandemic Puppy - Picking a Breeder Pandemic Puppy - Picking a Puppy from a Breeder Pandemic Puppy - Picking a Shelter Puppy Test for Detection Dogs You can support the K9 Conservationists Podcast by joining our Patreon at patreon.com/k9conservationists.

Today I discuss my work as chief medical officer. I spent 14 years as a senior hospital executive. There was a lot to like about that job. More than I can cover in one podcast episode. I presented the positive aspects of a hospital management career in Podcast Episode #20. But today, I'll focus on some of the specific projects I worked on and the directors who I worked with. I think it will give you a better idea of what a CMO does. I hope it will inspire you to consider a hospital management career. For those NOT considering such a career, you should listen anyway, because what I'll describe applies to a senior leadership position in almost any industry – even in your own business. I will start by listing the six assignments I want to describe today. Notice that I call them assignments because they represent a combination of the work with a specific department and its director, PLUS one or more of specific projects that we worked on together. For 2 of the 6, there was no distinct director to mention, for reasons I will explain when I get to those assignments. Here is the list of the 6 assignments… Leading the CME program, supporting the residency program start-up, and working with Lisa Zipsie, Director of Physicians Services. Selecting and implementing the first Quality Management Program, achieving Top 100 Hospital Status, and working with Mary Schore, QI Director. Implementing the hospital's first Lean Process Improvement Initiative and working with Stephanie Mitchell, Director of the Laboratory. Overseeing the implementation of physician order entry and the medication safety program and working with Jim Shafer, Pharmacy Director. Establishing the first hospitalist service. Recruiting physicians, purchasing local physician practices, and leading the medical group during its growth to the dominant multispecialty group in the county.

Selecting the right invoice automation solution will depend on the understanding of ap technology, as well as the accounts payable automation tools on the market today.

Here are your hosts, Curt Widhalm and Katie Vernoy.   Curt Widhalm  00:43 Welcome back monitor therapists. This is the Modern Therapist Survival Guide. I'm Curt Widhalm, with Katie Vernoy. And this is the podcast that is all things therapists, things that we do things we look at our profession about the struggles that we face coming into this fields, and about this time of year is when we're always coming out of our therapy reimagined conference. And some years we've recorded a live podcast at the conference. But this is the time of year when we reflect on what our mission is, and how we're going about that evaluating if we're being effective or not. And one of the things that we announced at this year's therapy reimagined conference is that we're not doing a therapy reimagined conference in 2022, that we have decided that our conference is going to go and live on a farm upstate, where it can have plenty of room to roam around and play with other conferences. But we are looking at, and part of the decision to not who is is the tremendous amount of time that it takes for our very small team to put together an event that is a snapshot in time of a lot of work that we do, it's hundreds, if not 1000s, of man hours to put on an event that Katie and I feel that some of that time can be actually better done to further admission in some other ways. And taking a step back as far as 2022 goes, does allow for us to refocus on our mission.   Katie Vernoy  02:31 Yes, and I think some of it came into stark relief, because we were putting on a conference two years in a row during a pandemic, with planning the conference numerous times, interacting around, you know, the COVID and the other stuff, but also zoom fatigue, and it just kind of the general malaise that I think has set in on all of us. And so, to me, I found that when we were getting ready for this year's conference, there was a lot I was really excited about. But there was a lot where I felt like, if I had more time I could do x if I had more time right now that wasn't dedicated to this conference, I could really do more for the mission that we've set for ourselves. And so and I know Kurt, you were feeling the same way. So I use is cuz I don't want to speak for you. But um, the things that I really see, being really important for us is looking at reevaluating how we're using our resources, time, team money, all of those things, because there's a lot that's happening in the field of mental health right now. I'm sure we'll do another workforce podcast around people leaving the field. And there's also a lot of initiatives that are starting to come forward that may help therapists but certainly are designed to try to make therapy more accessible. And so there's just a lot where I think we need boots on the ground, to be able to make sure that our profession is actually going in the right direction that we're using this time to make a difference versus being so stuck in the grind of whether it's our practices or a big annual conference or whatever. When Kurt and I were talking, I thought it was important that we actually for folks who haven't been with us that long, we've got a lot of new listeners lately, to really let people know what our mission is. We have a website that is dedicated to the podcast and to the therapy reimagined mission and so I'm I'll read kind of the main four tenants that we put up on this website, but we'll also link to it in the show notes. The four things that we're really looking at is create sustainable careers supporting sound business practices, the incorporation of technology and adequate pay for all therapists. The second one is improved education to reflect modern practices support, support high quality clinical work, trained therapists to care for themselves and address the diversity in our communities. Increased representation across the field, in supporting inclusion on our stages in our classrooms and in our offices. And, you know, kind of the one of the moment improve access to mental health care without requiring sacrifice, financial instability and burnout from therapists. So there's a lot there. It's a very broad mission. It's more just like, how do we make our profession better? But I think there's a lot that we could be doing here and, and so to me, I think for this episode, we kind of turn to what are we looking at? How do we do this? How do we help our fellow Modern Therapists to make our profession better?   Curt Widhalm  05:50 And but we have a number of projects that we're working on that we'll be announcing it has they come up, because one of the things that we have learned is get things kind of figured out before we   Katie Vernoy  06:05 very true, very true, we get so excited, and then we get to many projects. So yes, we will, we will wait to announce the ones till we're really ready.   Curt Widhalm  06:14 The podcast isn't going to change. And in fact, it's probably might allow us to become a lot better and a lot more focused and being able to bring messages that especially leading up to conference time, some of our podcasts, we have to record out quite a bit of head of time. So that way you can put on a conference. But   Katie Vernoy  06:36 yeah, we that little logistical thing of Hey, for the next two months, most of our focus will be the conference, that we have freedom to not do that this year.   Curt Widhalm  06:44 We're we're not going anywhere. As far as the podcast goes, we're going to be adding out some other things, we started a little online place for some continuing education, if that is something that we'll probably continue on with our conference that will allow us to bring some content to you and some new and other ways. Yes. And that takes off a couple of some of these mission points as far as providing still a good place for improving education for therapists and being able to bring what I think a lot of other conferences have shied away from, which is content about running business practices better.   Katie Vernoy  07:27 But also topics that push the envelope. It's interesting, because for me, I feel like we've been so immersed in our conference segment, which is misfits, outliers pushing against the status quo, like that just feels so endemic that I'm like, Oh, well, everybody has topics like this. And I think that's not actually true. Right. So continuing to bring new perspective to the clinical work to how people show up in the room, so that that's still going to be happening. And I like to think about that as like a learning community where we find different new and different ways to learn together through the podcast through this learning platform that we built out for the conference. I think that's all going to be really fun, regardless of exactly what it looks like, which we still don't know. So we're not going to promise.   Curt Widhalm  08:11 One of the things that I'm really looking forward to re establishing in our work is piece of the advocacy of really getting boots on the ground. And Katie mentioned that we're working on another workforce issue. We'll we'll get into some of these details here in a little bit. But I'm seeing across the country, a lot more bills going through legislators about dealing with mental health workforce shortages. And knowing that we can't rely solely on the professional organizations to be able to voice what it is that we actually need as workers that beyond getting like an extra Subway sandwich, you know, in an appreciation lunch once a month, that there are really structural problems with the way that our field is funded, and working with legislators outside of legislative season, when they're busy focusing on hundreds of bills. Yes, this is where some of the free time that we have not in planning a next year's conference right now is we're going to come up with some bullet points for you to actually start talking with your legislative representatives about in order to deal with this. You know, I can't wait to record this next episode. But it is going to be something where there is a call to action that's necessary because just as a little preview, some states are looking at having the National Guard come in to staff, residential facilities. Yeah, that's not good. So these are the kinds of things that allow for our focus to take some time into actually start making some impact to leave this as a better profession for those going forward.   Katie Vernoy  10:05 I think advocacy and activism can feel daunting. And I think it can also feel exhausting to be an activist or an advocate for your own profession. It's like, Hey, I gave it the office, so to speak. And I think for Kurt, and for me, I think this is clearly a huge passion of ours, we've been involved at the state level with our professional association with our board. And I think it's something where we can do some of the legwork, and I'm sure there's others like us out there that maybe can do the legwork in other states. And we could potentially put together a repository of information so people could activate on a local level on a national level on an international level and recognize we've got listeners from all over the place. And so I think it's, it's something where sharing information and doing the part that you can, maybe it's not always sufficient, but it's certainly good enough.   Curt Widhalm  11:06 And this comes across not just in legislative bills, right? Sure. One of the episodes that not one of the episodes, the absolute most popular episode that we've done, is about not selling out to companies like betterhelp. Yes. And some of the advocacy and stuff that we need to do is going beyond just complaining about companies Yes. And being able to turn that energy into something productive, based on the download numbers on this episode. This is something that really resonates with our community, we crafted our therapy, reimagined conference, talk around surviving and thriving in your own practices in a world where these apps are coming out. There's more steps that we can do. And it's well beyond the reaches of licensing boards, it's well beyond the reaches, which professional organizations are even starting to focus on. Yeah, that really does take more than the two of us clicking on every betterhelp ad that we see trying to take them down $1 at a time and advertising money.   Katie Vernoy  12:24 Oh, dear. There we go. Again, I think the thing that I'm hearing you say current and I think this is what's what's really important is that yes, there are things that need to happen at a legislative level at a policy level. And then there's kind of how we spend our dollars, so to speak, or how we spend our energy. And so one of the things that I'm really looking at, and I've been talking to some fellow modern therapists, and I'm going to be doing some more research. And I know Kurt, you're you're involved in this as well is really looking at how do we make a decision on where we work, who we work with, where we spend our money, because those things are actually hugely impactful on on what flies, better help and other organizations, conglomerates, you know, whatever, would not survive if we didn't work there. And so I think it's something where being able to get more information to everyone so that we can make those decisions, I think is something that's important to us. But we also are just two people, with a few people helping us out. And so we can't look everywhere at once. And so as always, we're always saying like, hey, if there's something that we need to be looking at, if there's something you're looking at that you want to talk with us about on the podcast, please send us a message podcast at therapy, reimagined, calm, but I think it's something where sharing information so that we're making more informed decisions is something that we can do much better when we have more time. And I think if you're listening and taking action based on that information, it has a ripple effect that I think is really impactful for our profession.   Curt Widhalm  14:07 And one of the things we hear at the conference from our attendees year after year, especially people who are attending the first time as Where were you earlier in my career.   Katie Vernoy  14:19 And that will say we've been here.   Curt Widhalm  14:22 And you know, the more the longer that we do the stuff that we do, that is becoming part of my answers. And that not having other people entering in our profession feeling the same way. And this is the call to action of being able to help us being able to take some of the steps that we do. And being able to do that in your own community is your own professional organizations, your own licensing boards, your own even therapists, culture and community around you does make it to where It's not the same complaints over and over. Part of what Katie and I thought, when we were originally launching the podcast back in 2017, was, if we just start talking about some of the issues that we hear in the same conversations over and over again, and we record them, then maybe this can serve as a resource for people to not have to ask the same questions over and over again. And it's worked a little bit, it helps to be able to post an old podcast up and say, here's our take on this from when we talked about this before. And in some areas, it has really served to shift some of the conversations that some of this deals with, like our work on developing a statement about paying pre licensees that, really being able to see our profession, in some respects, be able to stand up and be like, we have master's degrees or doctorate degrees, we should get paid for the work that we do. And part of this is how much I recognize that, for a profession like ours, where the median age is a lot higher than it is in a lot of other professions, we hold on to a lot of old ways. And a lot of the things that is frustrating that we have had the same conversations over and over again, is that the more vocal modern therapists are, the more that we can start to sway what the attitudes about our profession really are. I'm sensing that we are getting this tipping point. And the reason that I know this is the more that I hear from more established seasoned therapists about how we're making it harder for people to get hired at low rates. Yeah, that people are asking for things like, oh, living wage, rather than working for free. But I know that this tide is changing. A lot of this is beyond what we do. But sure, it's giving the permission to be able to make this a sustainable career. And that is very much part of our mission. And we see this in a number of ways. But hopefully, it's those people who are listening to us those people who are coming to our conference for the first time, we're able to take away some of those other complaints from future therapists to be able to say, there was a time when you guys didn't get paid.   Katie Vernoy  17:38 Yeah, that would be cool. Yeah, I don't know what to expect as far as what's reasonable, or not even reasonable. Maybe that's not the right word. But what, what's realistic to expect as far as the amount of changes we can make, and I know we've talked about how to approach change at different times, whether it's working within the system, or burning it all down and starting fresh, or whatever it is. And I think, to me have been one of those therapists that has been around for quite some time, it's just blows my mind that I've been a therapist for 20 years. And it's something where I've burned it down, I've quit things and a half. And I've also worked within the system. And I don't know that either of those things can work without the other completely. I think there needs to be people working in both, both arenas making these differences. And I'm not sure how much can be done it within within the remainder of my career, I've got you know, I've been a therapist for 20 years, I'll probably be a therapist for another 20 years. So I'm right smack dab in the middle. I don't know what's reasonable to expect. And maybe this is just me feeling reflective and a little bit sentimental after the conference is finished. But I'm excited about the work we can do. And I also am trying to stay more cautiously optimistic about what's actually possible.   Curt Widhalm  19:11 And I'm looking at it as fast not doing conference. That way we can focus on is more sustained effort, you know, avoiding the Tony Robbins effect, you know, where people go to the, you know, great motivational speakers, and they walk out and they're like, I'm gonna change everything about my life.   Katie Vernoy  19:33 Everything is gonna be amazing now because I was at a three day conference.   Curt Widhalm  19:38 And people have done research on people who attend Tony Robbins events. It's why it's named after him. Yeah. That effect wears off after about 72 hours.   Katie Vernoy  19:49 Oh, geez. The length of that of the conference maybe is the length of time that you remain, you keep that sustain that that effort and so   Curt Widhalm  19:59 what We want is for us to be able to not just focus on creating kind of this groundswell of energy that everyone returns back to their normal lives, but is able to kind of throughout the year, hold some consistent pressure on the community around them, you know, they   Katie Vernoy  20:20 can't escape us, they will always have us all the time, and we will constantly be working.   Curt Widhalm  20:26 Well, I mean, it's, it's the things like, you know, you're talking about having left agencies in a house before. And yes, but it's also taking a hard look at ourselves and the culture that we bring, because I look at some of the Facebook groups where somebody, you know, announces that they're leaving a group, because they're not satisfied with the way that the community support is. And looking at the atrocious way that the Facebook communities respond in those situations, tells me that there's a lot of therapists that are just fine, being part of that toxicity.   Katie Vernoy  21:09 And the status quo. Yeah, and I think there are times when the people leaving and a half are actually part of the toxic culture, too. So we're not commenting on specific people who have left in a half. But I think it's it's something where the response, I guess, regardless of whether someone leaving is part of the toxicity, or whether the environment is toxic, or both, the response is to sustain the status   Curt Widhalm  21:36 quo, the same status quo that everyone complains about.   Katie Vernoy  21:40 Yes. So I think consistent effort, it building a consistent culture of learning and growing and challenging the status quo and working to combat complacency. I think I like that idea. I also am just acknowledging that people may need to opt out at times, because it is a lot of work to sustain this type of effort to keep pushing forward. Especially if there are other things that people are interested in advocating for and activating for. So we recognize that but we're gonna maintain consistency are gonna be there. Week after week, with the podcast month after month, with whatever else we're doing, we're going to be pushing forward these concepts to make all of our careers better.   Curt Widhalm  22:28 And a final note from me on this is, this is also permission for you that we believe in the things that we talked about on this podcast, we do them in our practices, and part of what you're witnessing is reevaluating what's working for your business and what's not. And Katie, and I came to the conclusion that conferences, not helping us in the way that we want to spread our mission. It's something where it's okay to take a step back. And really what we're giving ourselves permission on, is we come out of therapy, reimagined, 2021, Hayes is you don't have to have everything figured out at every step along the way. Part of redeveloping your business plan is looking at what's working and what's not, we're in that phase of, we know what's not working for us, and gonna be sitting down and clarifying and continuing to bring you great content.   Katie Vernoy  23:30 And a final note from me, because I think part of our assessment and evaluation is that it's the two of us and a few other people that have been doing a lot of this work. And we've had opportunities and I hope, have taken advantage of opportunities to collaborate with a number of people, with our speakers with our sponsors and partners. We've collaborated with a lot of people. But the word that kept resonating for me as I was thinking about how we move forward is co creation. And so my call to action is stay involved. But let us know if you actually want to take a step forward with us and help us with creating content or researching something or spotlighting an area of our profession that needs a closer look. You know, definitely reach out to us but Kurt and I have each have our own experiences and perspectives and and we need to broaden that in the work that we do. And so if you want to be part of this co creation of the next steps, please reach out and let us know.   Curt Widhalm  24:39 Until next time, I'm Kurt, Katie Vernoy.   Katie Vernoy  24:43 Thanks again to our sponsor turning point,   Curt Widhalm  24:46 we wanted to tell you a little bit more about our sponsor turning points.

Health Mysteries Solved
102 How to Support Your Body Even if Supplements Make you Sick

Health Mysteries Solved

Play Episode Listen Later Sep 30, 2021 40:58


The Case:  Mara has sleep issues, anxiety and overall malaise. She struggles with vitamins, supplements and detoxes as they leave her feeling worse. Multiple experts tried to tell her it was part of the process, but she never got better.   The Investigation I have many clients who tell me they are very sensitive to supplements and we have to pay close attention to their support but Mara's case was more extreme. I knew we had to avoid detoxes but still get her results without overtaxing her very sensitive body. I knew just the method to start solving this health mystery -- flower power.    Flower Power is Not Just for Hippies Katie Hess is a flower alchemist. She uses flower essences to help people regain their health. She is the author of Flowerevolution and founder of LOTUSWEI, one of the world's leading floral apothecaries. With her signature elixirs featured in The Oprah Magazine, The New York Times and the LA Times, her flower-powered community is thriving today in over 15 countries.  Using flower essences for healing is a practice that can be found in different cultures around the globe since well before the development of modern medicine. Present-day shamans and alternative health practitioners still turn to them today.    What are Flower Essences?  Traditionally, the flower essences were procured by sipping the dew off of a specific flower. Medicine men and women believe that the life force of the flower is captured in this dew. The dew collection process has been modernized over the millenia, and now these essences are captured through solar infusion. Now, significantly more flower essence can be captured and bottled at scale.  Drinking a few drops of this essence is essentially, using the life force of plants to harmonize our own body's energy. Katie explains that it's kind of like an acupuncture treatment without the needles.    How are Flower Essences Different from Essential Oils? Many people have heard of (and used) essential oils so it's easy to get the two confused. Katie shares that essential oils come from the plant material itself (and one drop requires a lot of plant material). To get essential oil from the plant or flower, you have to squeeze or distill the juice of the plant. Often Essential oils are also highly aromatic and usually need to be diluted to use it. Flower essences used in flower remedies require fewer plants and are much more gentle on the system. This is what makes them very effective for people who are very sensitive including the elderly, pregnant women, and even infants. You are not ingesting any of the chemical plant parts so it's different from taking an herbal tincture.    Selecting the Right Flower Essence There are so many different types of flowers and so many issues that people might want to treat, how do you determine which flower will help someone? There is a long history of different plants being used for different purposes so there is much to draw on. Many flower essences and flower essence combinations have been created over the years. When it comes to finding a new treatment, the clues are in the flowers' appearance. Intuition also plays a role for Katie. Katie also uses her group for testing. When she believes that a certain plant will deliver a specific benefit, her group of flower essence enthusiasts will try it out and report back on how it made them feel.  She has created a quiz that helps people discover the elixir that is right for them.    The Science Behind Flower Essences I love scientific studies so I had to find out what kind of science backs up this historical evidence. Katie says there have been numerous studies that look at the energy transfer from plants to humans. She points to the practice of Shinrin-yoku or ‘forest bathing' in Japan where the government encourages people to spend time immersed in nature because they found those who did experienced a sustained drop in cortisol levels (a decrease in their stress hormones) and an immune boost. There were also studies done in the UK that showed proof that plants emit energy or vibrations as evidenced by how bees find flowers (it's not the color or the smell!)   How Quickly do Flower Essences Work? Katie says that many people can feel the energy from the flower essence right away but as a rule of thumb, she usually tells people that they should feel a difference within 3-5 days if they are taking the flower essences 4-5 times a day. Those who are sensitive or more aware will likely feel a difference within minutes. It's a bit like taking vitamins, it's going to take a bit of time for the body to feel the benefits but in some cases, when it's for a specific symptom, the benefits might be felt quickly.    What Can You Support with Flower Essences? Flower essences are used for a variety of issues ranging from digestive issues to fatigue, anxiety, and painful periods. Mindset support and emotional healing are also reasons that people turn to flower essences. For example, they might use certain essences for treating limiting beliefs, procrastination, grief, or even dealing with past traumas.    How to Use Flower Essences Flower essences are traditionally taken orally either in an elixir or a few drops added to another liquid like tea or coffee. Katie also blends them with aromatherapy that can be put into a diffuser, added to anointing oils, or bath salts. These make for nice self-care rituals. Katie's research shows that the energy from the plants is equally transferred regardless of how the essence is administered.  While there are no known interactions with supplements or medications, anyone using psychotropic drugs,  antidepressants, or anti-anxiety medication should expect for the effect of the flower essences to take significantly longer. Instead of three days, it might take as much as 30 days.    Mystery Solved What I love about flower essences is that they are so gentle but can also be so powerful. This was exactly what Mara needed and thankfully could tolerate. I started Mara on the elixir called ‘Inner Peace'. After a few days, she was surprised to discover that she was feeling calmer without any negative reactions.  A week later, we added ‘Quiet Mind' and between both of those elixirs, she was able to fall asleep easier. A few weeks later it was even easier to fall asleep and she was able to sleep through the night most days of the week (instead of waking 4-5 times per night).  She decided to try more, including ‘Joy Juice' which she loved because it gave her a pep in her step and then ‘Self Heal' which she felt  helped her feel a bit less sensitive.   Happy Ending Once Mara was sleeping better, her energy improved drastically. At that point, we were able to start supporting her liver with binders and very low doses of NAC (250 mg) to get her body primed - both of which she is tolerating and feeling better.   Eliminating Health Mysteries For Mara we were able to find that missing piece of the health puzzle and help her regain her health. Could this be the missing clue for you or someone in your life?    Links: Resources mentioned Thanks to my guest Katie Hess. You can connect with her and find flower essences through her website.
