He is successful in industries from marketing to lasers to software. Companies turn to him for his clear grasp of the startup-to-sellout process. The death of Mark's former wife from a painkiller overdose put him on the path to creating high-performance nutritional supplements. After 4 years of development, he released a product called “Limitless NZT-48,” as in the movie Limitless, with 3,500% growth over the first year (now 5,100% over 29 months). Mark considers the biggest challenge with nootropics to be that everyone's brain chemistry is unique. For the first time ever, Nootopia has solved this with a personalized process and product. They use your information to evaluate your goals and brain chemistry, then customize their nine core blends. Whether you want to say goodbye to afternoon energy crashes, increase your verbal fluency, boost your emotional intelligence, or reach other optimization goals, Nootopia gets you 100% personal help every single day. The system even comes with an app that guides you every step of the journey and allows you to give feedback to customize your blends even further. Mark's vision is for the resources from the company to move the needle in terms of making a difference while they make healthy profits. He firmly believes that Nootopia can add value both locally and globally.

It is well known that depression (and certain drug treatments for depression, notably SSRIs) can lower sexual interest, desire, and activity levels. However, it turns out that the story of how depression and sex are connected is more complicated than this. Depression is one of those things that can affect different people in very different ways. In fact, research actually finds that depression has the potential to both increase and decrease sexual desire and behavior. So how do we explain this pattern of results? Let's talk about it.  I am joined by JoEllen Notte, a writer, speaker, and mental health advocate whose work explores the impact of depression on sex and relationships. Since 2012 she has written about sex, mental health, and how none of us are broken on her award-winning site, The Redhead Bedhead. JoEllen is the author of The Monster Under The Bed: Sex, Depression, and the Conversations We Aren't Having as well as the upcoming book In It Together: Navigating Depression with Partners, Friends, and Family. Some of the topics we discuss include:  Why depression may lower sexual interest in some people, but increase libido for others. The sexual side effects of various antidepressant treatments. How to take control of your sexuality when you're depressed. How to work with your healthcare provider(s) to minimize side effects of depression medication and treatment. How to communicate with a partner about sex when you're depressed. Learn more about JoEllen at redheadbedhead.com. Thank you to our sponsors! The Modern Sex Therapy Institutes is one of the leading sex therapy certification programs in the world, meets all AASECT certification requirements, has 12 other specialty certifications, and a Ph.D. program in Clinical Sexology.

Your mammal brain controls the chemicals that make you feel good: dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin, and endorphin. These chemicals are released for reasons that don't make sense to our verbal human brain. When you know what these chemicals do in animals, your ups and downs make sense!Our happy chemicals evolved to reward survival behavior, not to make you feel good all the time. Each happy chemical has a special job. When it turns on, it paves neural pathways that turn it on more easily in the future. That's why we repeat behaviors that we'd rather do without. Fortunately, you can re-wire yourself to stimulate them in sustainable ways.But it's hard. It's like learning a foreign language: it takes a lot of repetition. Yet people do it every day. You can be one of them! You can design a new path to your happy chemicals and repeat it until it's strong enough to turn on easily.

Vom Einfrieren in Krisen und wieder Auftauen. Etwa 1,5 Jahre lang suchte Martin eine neue Stelle. Denn seine Position als Geschäftsführer, die er zuvor inne hatte, wurde aufgelöst aufgrund von Restrukturierungen. Er hatte seinen Job geliebt und plötzlich brach viel weg. Mittlerweile ist er wieder Geschäftsbereichsleiter eines internationalen Industrie-Unternehmens mit etwa 600 Mitarbeiter:innen. Er erzählt wie sein Leben gefühlt nach der Kündigung "einfror" und wie er im Umfeld und auch in sich selbst neue Anker fand, um sich dem immer größer werdenden mentalen Stress in diesen unsicheren Zeiten zu stellen. Sehr offen beschreibt er, worin er Unterstützung fand und was sich nicht als hilfreich zeigte. "Das wird schon wieder, hilft in dem Moment nicht", stellt Martin über typische Tröst-Versuche fest. Er bezieht sich dabei auf Trost von außen, der gut gemeint war, doch nicht fruchtet. Ein Umfeld, das negative Emotionen wie Angst nicht zulassen kann, ist eher toxisch. Mentale Stärke braucht den Mut hinzusehen, hin zur Angst, hin zur Unsicherheit und auch den Mut nicht mehr passende Ziele loszulassen und Neues zu entdecken. Martin beschreibt, was er für sich alles neu entdeckte. Es ist ein sehr ruhiges, angenehmes Gespräch geworden. Ich verändere sogar meine Sprache hin zu mehr Privatheit. Ganz unbewusst passe ich mich dem bayrisch von Martin etwas an. So entfaltet sich ein Gespräch das Tiefe mitbringt, ernsthaft, mit sehr viel Ehrlichkeit und Mut. Es ging nicht darum, sich idealisierend in der Stärke zu feiern, sondern den eigenen Themen ins Gesicht zu sehen und genau dadurch bekam dieses Gespräch - unserem Empfinden nach - sehr viel mentale Kraft. "An den Scheidewegen des Lebens stehen keine Wegweiser." Charlie Chaplin Wir beide freuen uns, wenn Du in diese Folge hinein hörst. Martin und seine wundervollen Naturfotos findest du auf Instagram als @martin_dakini . ACHTUNG: mein Instagram Account hat sich geändert, du findest mich unter @freiwasser_2.0 .

Dr. Laura invites Jennifer Buchanan, author of “Wellness, Wellplayed”, back to the show to discuss wellness through music. Jennifer discusses how music plays a key role in impacting our mood, memory, and productivity, and she shares stories about witnessing the power of music therapy in action.Music has an incredible impact on our moods: Jennifer talks about how it can motivate us out of a slump and increase our serotonin levels. She details the positive effects of music on every stage of our lives. One of the physical areas in which music therapy has a demonstrable impact is in neuro rehab. Jennifer explains how challenges in fine or gross motor movement after a brain injury can be positively influenced by elements of music. “So music has this incredible capacity to act like a drug on our system and … the hormones and neurotransmitters that affect us.  You hear about the words dopamine, for example, and that feel-good oxytocin, which is that social bonding hormone that can be released in our system, and serotonin, which is the one you don't want to get too low because you start feeling low and there's this nice window of where serotonin needs to reside. And what we have found through the research and evidence is that music has this incredible capacity to be able to change those hormone levels in our system, especially when we use [music] regularly.” - Jennifer BuchananAbout Jennifer Buchanan:Jennifer Buchanan is an award-winning author and Music Therapist, instrumental in the implementation of hundreds of music therapy programs throughout Canada since 1991.  Her company JB Music Therapy has thrice been nominated for the Community Impact Award by her local Chamber of Commerce. She is the author of several books including Wellness, Wellplayed: The Power of A Playlist and is a regularly invited guest to speak at industry conferences that aim to strengthen and inspire people working in healthcare, education, and the public sector including law enforcement.  As a subject matter expert, Jennifer is a trusted source for many television media outlets across North America and has been featured in publications such as The Guardian and The Huffington Post.As a board member and service provider with the National Music Centre, Jennifer champions music for health and wellness throughout Canada and beyond.Resources:Jennifer Buchanan websiteJB Music Therapy website JB Music Therapy on FacebookJB Music Therapy on Twitter JB Music Therapy on InstagramJennifer Buchanan on LinkedInJennifer Buchanan on FacebookJennifer Buchanan on Instagram“Wellness, Wellplayed: The Power of a Playlist” by Jennifer Buchanan “Wellness, Wellplayed Workbook” by Jennifer Buchanan “Tune In: A Music Therapy Approach to Life” by Jennifer Buchanan “Wellness Incorporated” by Jennifer BuchananOngoing History of New Music podcast by Alan Cross“This Is Your Brain on Music: The Science of a Human Obsession” by Daniel J.

THE THESIS: If China stopped making drugs for America, this Nation would collapse in a Month or two. THE SCRIPTURE & SCRIPTURAL RESOURCES: Sometimes, God does not remove the thorn, He gives us His Grace and reminds us it is enough. That is so difficult when the pain is intense and so edifying when we learn to let God's Grace work.What Was Paul's Thorn in the Flesh? (2 Corinthians 12)THE NEWS & COMMENT:I fully believe Tony Fauci is a psychopath or sociopath, I know he is a spiritual captive. So much evil has been done through him. Now, the man who never once said in his thousands of TV interviews he had memory issues suddenly says he can't remember much . . . Fauci Could Not Recall Key Details During Deposition: Louisiana Attorney General. . . when he pretended his didn't pay attention to the Great Barrington Declaration, he was obviously lying under oath, but he's a career liar and left wiggle room he can slither through. How do I know he lied? Because he used our money to try to ruin the doctors and scientists who founded The Great Barrington Declaration. What does that say about who owns America?Speaking of our money:Biden's National Science Foundation Has Pumped Nearly $40 Million Into Social Media Censorship Grants and Contracts. . . The Party that gave your money to Big Pharma to make the mRNA clot shots, then spent at least $40 million to make sure Pharma got to lie with few challenges. Even as he retires in his blood money, Fauci keep letting himself be used for lies:[AUDIO] - Fauci: "When we're gathering at a family gathering for Thanksgiving, it makes sense that you might want to get a test before you come into a place where you could be infected and spread it."Who owns America? Is it the same groups that own Canada?[AUDIO] - “Unvaccinated patients have a mental problem and should be put on psychiatric medications.”PhD's in math, data analysis, systems analysis, people demonstrably gifted by God with intelligence to discern truth from lies are, to “doctor” Jha “random dudes on Twitter.” For whom is he speaking? [AUDIO] - “Dr”. Jha: "The real leaders of American medicine are out there telling you that you need to go get a vaccine. You can decide to trust America's physicians or you can trust some random dude on Twitter."I pray God will reveal to President Trump the truth about these injections. [AUDIO] - Trump STILL defends Big Pharma and the so-called Covid “vaccines …”This woman pretends lockdowns and masking just happened, no one is to blame. She also makes believe Mike Pompeo called all teachers filth. This is the same woman whose colleagues are installing Pharma outlets in schools. Who owns America?[AUDIO] - Boss/Head Capo of teacher's union Randi Weingarten: Teachers “have been dealing with all the anxieties & the aftershocks & aftereffects of Covid for children, including the mental health crises.”Who owns America? Well, what would happen if China, which makes most of these addictive drugs decided to stop?Steve writes:Hi Todd,I'm a long time radio fan who was very disappointed when they talked you into the FM Show. I want to disagree with you on something because I think you are falling for the Big Pharm's hype on it and not understanding how it actually works. I'm talking about the whole Serotonin controversy. When I became clinically depressed I actually didn't believe it was a real thing. I really thought it was most likely a bunch of whiners making excuses for never getting off of their backsides and doing anything. Not terribly compassionate on my part but I got my comeuppance. I started feeling down all of the time and became almost completely unable to sleep so I naturally turned to alcohol as a sleep aid. Two years of that took away my ability to stop drinking, so I had to quit that entirely which just left me not sleeping and feeling even worse. I went to a counselor and very sheepishly said that I might be kinda sorta possibly maybe a little depressed. He agreed and we had six months of therapy that hadn't budged my mood a half inch before he sent me to a psychiatrist for some “real help” as he called it. The white-haired veteran shrink that he sent me to was fabulous. He asked great questions and listened intently and we started on some medication. He told me right up front that prescribing anti-depressants is “pseudoscience” because there are no tests that will tell us what will help, only trial and error informed by his years of experience. You ramp up on each one slowly, and if it doesn't work you ramp back down and do it again with another one. It takes patience.What I think you're missing is that to this day I have no idea if serotonin had anything at all to do with the cause of my depression, but I do know that boosting it up had a lot to do with making it possible for me to live with it while I continued the “talk therapy” that was actually working on the root causes. It took eight years before I started to emerge from the fog, and I seriously doubt I would have let it go on anywhere near that long without the boost I got from the two anti-depressants that I ended up taking. Over the years we tried at least ten, but we didn't stick with most of them because there wasn't any significant benefit. Thanks to my years in sobriety groups I know lots of people who have experienced severe depression and I don't know a single one who would ever use the word “cure” in connection with any medication. They don't cure anything, they just lessen the worst of the horrible feelings so that you can tolerate them while you do the really long term part and get some help figuring out what part of your life is triggering the issue. I never became suicidal, and I don't believe in suicide at all, but I did worry about it because I could foresee that at some point the depression and insomnia would very likely break me.When you respond to the hype that drugs can cure depression, you're really falling for the marketing campaign. Also don't ever let anyone you know get meds from their general practitioner. There are hundreds of different, very narrowly focused medications with subtle differences and your average GP has experience with maybe a half dozen that he gives out like chiclets to any patient that might be somewhat depressed. You don't trust your GP to do brain surgery and you absolutely don't go to him for depression. “Ask your doctor about Symbalta” is pure marketing and nothing else. I'm sure it boosts sales right through the roof as a bunch of people in need of a subtle and accurate touch get something that they don't need prescribed by someone who really doesn't have any idea what they are doing.I do believe that there is an organic component of serious depression, something drops below the point where you have the ability to snap yourself out of it. You might ask if I ever prayed to be cured of it, and the answer to that would be no. The insidious part of depression is that there is nothing a depressed person likes to do more than review the times they have failed to live up to their own standards. The simple fact is that when we're in it we believe we deserve all of the misery.So, while I don't disagree that they are over-prescribed and very often mis-prescribed, I think you do a grave disservice to a lot of folks when you completely dismiss them.

Nick talks to computational neuroscientist Dr. Zach Mainen, a neuroscientist and director of the Champalimaud Neuroscience Programme at the Centre of the Unknown in Lisbon, Portugal. His lab studies the neuroscience of decision making, neuromodulation & behavior using both experimental and computational approaches. They discuss: what kinds of things animal brains are actually computing, and to what extent we can think about brains like computers; the difference between neurotransmitters and neuromodulators in the brain, including some discussion of what specific neuromodulators like dopamine and serotonin do in the brain; and we also discussed some of the research his lab is starting to do on serotonergic psychedelics, including how he thinks about whether the subjective effects of psychedelics are likely to be important for the therapeutic and neuroplastic effects.SUPPORT M&M:Sign up for the free weekly Mind & Matter newsletter:[https://mindandmatter.substack.com/?sort=top]Learn how you can further support the podcast: [https://mindandmatter.substack.com/p/how-to-support-mind-and-matter]Support the show

For more information on this topic or to schedule a consultation please visit us at http://WhatIsHashimotos.com So I've just been told that we haven't done a presentation yet on Hashimoto's and brain fog. I don't know how that's possible because it's literally one of the top three symptoms. It's fatigue and I put on weight and I have brain fog is Hashimoto's. There's 20 symptoms that are really, really prominent, but literally that's in the top three. So yeah. Hashimoto's causes brain fog. How does it do that? So many ways. It's so many ways, but we'll start with Hashimoto's. We'll start with the thyroid itself. When the thyroid is getting attacked and it's creating an inflammatory response and it's making too much T4, and ultimately making too much T3, which is the two thyroid hormones and the T3 is active. There have been studies that have shown it creates inflammatory responses in your brain during these attacks and it decreases blood supply to your brain. Your brain needs proper oxygen. So decreasing blood supply is not a good thing to happen to your brain. The brain needs a lack of inflammation. So every time you get that, you get an inflammatory response to your brain and it needs other things, too. It needs blood sugar, it needs proper essential fatty acids. It needs proper stimulation. So these are then things that your brain cells require. You're hitting two of the major areas with Hashimoto's and then brain fog is basically... Nobody can explain it, but they're just like I just can't think and sometimes I can't get my words out, and I get tired and so on and so forth. So that's one way in which Hashimoto's does it. Another characteristic of Hashimoto's is constipation. Can be constipation and diarrhea. Okay. More often it's constipation than not. Okay. Because after it's been beat up in attacks, then your thyroid starts to fall into hypothyroid just from it's getting beat up. So it's having a harder time making thyroid hormone in between these attacks. So that slows down your entire digestive system. So what's in the digestive system that would cause you to have brain fog? You'll usually get leaky gut. You can have things like if you get bloating and distension, that can create things called lipopolysaccharides. Those go up to your brain, create inflammatory responses. There's cytokines, which are inflammatory proteins. There's food sensitivities. Once you get those, there's metabolites from those that go up there. And there's, I forget how much it is. I want to say 90%, I think that's correct. 90% of your serotonin. If you haven't heard of serotonin, that's what... Everybody says "Oh, I got a dopamine hit, I'm really happy." Well, serotonin is what really makes you happy. Serotonin is what makes you like to be with your friends. It makes you happy. Serotonin is like when you get sad, because it's overcast, you usually have low serotonin. Seasonal, effective disorder. Serotonin is like mood, mood, mood, mood, mood, mood, mood. Serotonin is like good mood. Well, 90% of it's made in your intestines. So if the thyroid is slowing down and causing your intestines to become abnormal, then it's going to be destroying a lot of that serotonin. http://powerhealthtalk.com http://drmartinrutherford.com Martin P.

With over 30 years of experience in integrative medicine, psychiatry and addiction recovery, today's guest, Dr. Hyla Cass, exposes the dangers of overmedicating in modern medicine.   Birth control affects women's ability to regulate their mood because it completely subdues their natural hormone cycle. Our hormones act together as a symphony but removing even one hormone can destabilize basic functions of the body.   Sleep is usually the first victim of hormonal imbalances. Dr. Cass warns that most doctors are just too eager to prescribe sleeping medication before seeking a natural remedy. Sleep aids are meant to be temporary solutions but most patients are unaware of the addictive nature of these medications.   If you want to see real changes in your sleep, mood and overall health, listen as Dr. Cass outlines useful herbal remedies that are safer alternatives than addictive prescription.   Takeaways: [3:12] Doctors are prescribing medication without asking more about the cause of women's depression [3:47] Treating PMS with antidepressants has no effect on the hormonal imbalance causing symptoms [4:30] Neurotransmitters and hormones are chemical messengers that interact with each other [5:12] Neurotransmitters are the root of emotions [5:50]The most common neurotransmitter deficiency is Serotonin and Gaba [6:40] Determining neurotransmitter deficiencies through patient history and cravings [7:35] Antidepressants change the chemistry of your brain and are difficult to wean off of [8:25] Neurotransmitter precursors are the raw materials needed to make the neurotransmitters [9:30] A nourishing diet is paramount in balancing your mood [10:40] Birth control is eliminating women's hormones which is killing their ability to regulate their mood [11:40] The synergy of all of our hormones is a beautiful symphony  [13:15] Fight or Flight is a predominantly male trait while bond and protect is a more femenine trait  [15:50] The natural way to deal with stress is to literally shake off the stress hormones [17:30] Cheating sleep leads to stress on ourselves and our brains [18:35] Sleep medications are wildly addictive and has ruined many lives. [19:10] CBD enables our endocannabinoid system which helps us protect, relax and forget [20:16] Melatonin is converted serotonin [21:10] waking up with high cortisol in the night would indicate you require tryptophan    Twitter: “We can work with the hormones and we can work with nature. We are from nature and we have the best pharmacy within us. [4:05]   “If you don't have enough gaba there is a tendency to be more anxious and it's also more of a physical anxiety.It's muscle tension.”  [6:10]   “People who crave stimulants, anything from caffeine to cocaine,they're going to be low in dopamine. People who are craving alcohol and tend to want tranquilizers, they're low in Gaba.” [7:10]   “Our brain is 80% fat and we need to feed the brain, we need to make brain cells, so good fats from salmon and avocado and also that fish will provide protein.” [10:00]   Podcast Disclaimer:  https://resources.thespadr.com/the-womans-doctor/#disclaimer

Around 80% of people surveyed believe in the serotonin theory of depression, which has now been categorically disproved by a research paper published in the top academic journal Nature Molecular Psychiatry.  Today, I was fortunate enough to interview one of the researchers who published the paper. Dr Mark Horowitz is a Clinical Research Fellow in the British NHS and an Honorary Clinical Research Fellow at UCL. He has completed a PhD in the neurobiology of depression and the pharmacology of antidepressants at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience at King's College London.  Mark was on antidepressants for 15 years as a student and when he tried to come off them, he experienced insomnia, panic attacks, dizziness, anxiety and low mood and he has now used his clinical background to develop strategies to help others come off anti-depressants in a safe manner.  Check him out at https://markhorowitz.org/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

One of the most important things a healthy brain needs is appropriate neurotransmitter activity. Neurotransmitters regulate our brain function, our energy, our focus, our mood, and our lives. Imbalances in neurotransmitters can come from many things, including past trauma, unhealthy relationships, bad habits, chronic stress, poor gut health, crappy diet, toxins, autoimmunity, neuroinflammation....the list goes on and on, but it can be helpful to know which neurotranmitters are imbalanced in the hopes of supporting your specific brain functions and symptoms. The most important neurotransmitters, which I discuss in this podcast, are:Serotonin - regulates some aspects of mood, appetite, happiness, enjoyment of activities, appreciation of art. Acetylcholine - regulates working memory, computation, muscle contractions, and parasympathetic nervous system (vagus nerve) activity to the gut.Dopamine - important for motivation, pleasure, focus, mood, addiction, thrill-seeking.Epinephrine/Norepinephrine - aka "adrenaline", stimulates "fight or flight" stress response centrally in the brain and also peripherally from the adrenal glands. GABA - the primary "calming" neurotransmitter, GABA is inhibitory and is often inadequate in symptoms of anxiety, depression, and neuroexcitation.These neurotransmitters can all be modulated with lifestyle strategies and targeted nutraceuticals, whether it be providing the building blocks for the neurotransmitters itself (tyrosine for dopamine for example), or impacting the receptor sensitivity (L-theanine for GABA), or using nutrients to support certain pathways like the Kynurenine Pathway, Dopamine Beta Hydroxylase, or other genetic pathways (COMT, MTHFR, MAO) of neurotransmitter metabolism. Supporting neurotransmitter metabolism can be a game changer when supporting brain function, and my goal is to teach people how to solve their own puzzles, so I hope this is helpful, next episode is part 3/4, brain regions!

Today's teens are at risk of major stress overload. On top of managing their grades and competing for spots at exclusive universities, they're battling the onslaught of a recession and a world battered by a pandemic. They've also got to navigate a complicated digital landscape! With phone notifications going off every five minutes demanding their attention, it's no wonder teens are chronically stressed out.You may have heard of some stress relief methods for kids, like yoga, journaling, or taking long walks...but do they really work? Do teens need to go to therapy to feel better? Should they quit their extracurriculars to make more time for relaxation? What could possibly give kids the stress relief they need?The bottom line is, stress isn't one-size-fits-all, and neither is the solution! If we want to find out how teens can de-stress, we'll have to learn more about how each teen's body processes stress in the first place.To learn more about the nuances of stress and possible solutions, we're talking to Dr. Doni Wilson, author of Master Your Stress, Reset Your Health.

Huberman Lab Podcast Notes Key Takeaways Evolution of psychiatry: phase I – must be something genetic or how you were raised; phase II – must be a chemical imbalance or something chemically missingThere's actually a decrease in the level of activity in the brain on psychedelics, but the connectivity in regions increasesWe're all taught to retain some level of control in our day-to-day lives – part of the therapeutic effect of psychedelics is about untethering, letting go, and letting the system assume a natural state you've been fightingMental health disorders exist on a range; you may not reach a clinical level of OCD but you may have some tendencies or habits“If you can rid yourself of all to social and cultural constructions and re-examine these if we just discovered these today, we'd say that [psychedelics] are a huge breakthrough in psychiatry.” – Dr. Nolan WilliamsPsychedelics allow you to enter into a highly plastic state and reconsolidate memory which may drive a therapeutic effectAnti-psychotic therapeutic effects of cannabis are from the CBD and not the THC – the problem is we have potent strains now heavy with THC and low in CBDTranscranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) has the potential to send a signal to the prefrontal cortex and use the brain's own communication style to get it out of a depressive state – you're tapping into core circuitry with minimal side effects (unlike tinkering neurotransmitters)Read the full notes @ podcastnotes.orgIn this episode, my guest is Nolan Williams, M.D., a triple board-certified psychiatrist, neurologist and professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Stanford School of Medicine. He is also the Director of the Stanford Brain Stimulation Lab. We discuss clinical applications for brain stimulation, behavioral protocols and novel drug treatments to halt and reverse mental health disorders, including depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). We first discuss the neural circuits for self-identity and mood and stress control. We discuss Dr. Williams' work using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to depression, trauma, PTSD, and other mood disorders. We then dive deep into the history, biology, modern use, and safety margins of the various psychedelics, including MDMA, LSD, ketamine, ibogaine, ayahuasca, and psilocybin, as well as cannabis and the use of SSRIs in both adults and children. Finally, we discuss behavioral treatments for mental health disorders, including sleep and sleep deprivation, light exposure, exercise, and training to control the brain-heart-rate pathways. Regardless of age, all those interested in mental health should benefit from the incredible breadth and depth of Dr. Williams' knowledge and the clarity with which he conveys that information.

It's going to sound sort of basic and maybe even cheesy but I'm telling you it's the secret sauce.   When you're in an awkward situation… maybe having small talk with someone you've just met or you walk into a crowded room of people you don't know or walk on stage before a speech… you're nervous!! Deep breath in and SMILE.     It's like the most basic thing… that most people don't do.  But I'm telling you if you can train yourself to do this… you will get comfortable in uncomfortable situations so much faster!!    Smiling is contagious … it lowers stress and anxiety… you're more approachable… you appear more confident.   Because of the reaction your body has to smiling, you're almost tricking your body into feeling more happy and less nervous.   Now it's not a nervous smile or WORSE- a nervous laugh. It's just a calm and confident smile- without saying anything.  It's subtle but changes everything.    Today we are talking about our superpower in uncomfortable situations - SMILING.       -We all get nervous - sometimes a little or sometimes a lot.    -Smiling is an easy way to boost your mood and be more relaxed.    -And it's way better than the alternatives!! looking down  Retreating on your phone  Crossing arms  Biting nails  Fidgeting or swaying  -This is NOT a nervous laugh!  -When we smoke it triggers a cascade of feel good brain chemicals called endorphins!    -It's almost like you TRICK your body into feeling new emotions.    -The act of smiling is a cue to your brain to release neuropeptides or happiness hormones like Dopamine, Serotonin and Endorphins.  Dopamin- gives you an instant boost of energy and motivation Serotonin- helps calm you down and soothes your nerves  Endorphins- reduce cortisol levels and even decreases feelings of pain.    Together these brain chemicals work to reduce the effects of stress and pressure and improve your mood!!    -Contagious!!  For you and for those around you.  When someone smokes at you.. your instinct is to smile back.  It instantly creates a positive social connection that reduces stress and improves connection.  It also tells your brain - im surrounded by friendly people here.    “There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so.” It's not the EMOTION it's the MEANING you give to the emotion that makes it come alive.      -So change your state, change the MEANING you give to the situation and change your emotion.   -It's like an instant confidence bump.  And it's one easy hack.  Breathe and smile.    -This is NOT putting on a happy face when you're upset - in fact we should FEEL ALL THE FEELINGS. -It's about how you label the situation and how you react.  Instead of OH MY GOD im so nervous.  It's deep breath and we got this.    -People respond so well to this because even if you dont talk to people, you appear friendly.    -And it helps you have GOOD REACTIONS!  When you don't know what to do- default to smile - when most people default to something else - resting not so kind face or reaction etc.    -There's zero downside and it's easy to remember.    CHEERS!! To your SMILE being your superpower!

Episode 396  - The Brain and Alcohol – Genetic Predisposition   Today we have Rene.   He is 33, from California, and took his last drink January 18, 2022.   Register for RE's AF Photo Class:  https://www.recoveryelevator.com/afphoto/   SoberLink:  https://www.soberlink.com/recovery-elevator   Highlights from Paul   Alcohol has many biochemical and neurochemical effects on the brain. There are dramatic changes in the neurons that control the release of serotonin when we consume alcohol. Serotonin is the feel-good chemical and 80% of it is created in the gut. When we mix alcohol and serotonin it gets converted into acetaldehyde. This acetaldehyde acts as a toxin.   Alcohol changes the relationship between the hypothalamus, the pituitary gland, and the adrenals.  The adrenals release chemicals called epinephrine and cortisol, which are involved in the longer-term stress response.   People who consistently drink are more stressed out at baseline. They have more cortisol released form their adrenal glands even when they are not drinking. Consequently, they feel more stressed and more anxiety when they are not drinking. Many scientists agree that stress is the number one contributor to disease.   When we overload the brain with alcohol, it's almost too much to process and the activity of neurons in the hippocampus, which is involved with memory formation, are strained and then they completely shut off – that is a blackout.  You can still be functioning, some high functioning, but the memory forming part of your brain, the hippocampus, clocks out.   Many believe that alcoholism is hereditary.  Recent studies, including one of twins conducted by Dr. Gabor Mate indicate genetics may not be as much of a contributor as we once thought.  Epigenetics indicate that environment influences gene expression and gene mutations.  Science is beginning to accept that environmental factors cause or influence addictions.  The ten-fold increase in alcoholism supports that theory.     Dr. Andrew Huberman's podcast provides much more detail on the science behind many of these theories.  Take a listen if you would like to learn more:  https://open.spotify.com/episode/2ebY3WNejLNbK47emgjd1E?si=bf71f9f038bc4826   Better Help:  www.betterhelp.com/elevator - 10% off your first month. #sponsored                                                                               [14:37]  Rene has been sober for over six months. He is 34 and a single Dad He is an entrepreneur and enjoys going to the gym, exploring the outdoors, hiking and the beach.   Rene is first generation American, and his family is very supportive.  He grew up around drinking, it was normalized.    He got drunk once during his senior year of high school.  He didn't drink again until after he broke up with his first girlfriend years later. Drinking became a reward, then it became a daily habit.  Working in the restaurant industry, drinking was expected.  He was fired once for drinking.    It didn't occur to Rene that drinking was a problem.  He began counseling and the counselor recommended AA.  Rene found it easy to see the similarities; he felt like he found his people.  He was planning to join the military when he learned he was about to become a father.  Eventually, he won sole custody of his daughter which dashed his hopes of joining the military.  The combination of issues sent him back to drinking.  He controlled his drinking for over a year, and it worked until it didn't.   Rene went back to AA and got a sponsor and a fitness coach.  Consistency helps him maintain his sobriety.  He is feeling mentally and physically strong.     [57:35] Kris's Summary   Seasonal shifts can put you on edge.  Share your experience: kris@recoveryelevator.com.   Upcoming events, retreats, and courses: You can find more information about our events   Resources Connect with Cafe RE - Use the promo code OPPORTUNITY to waive the set-up fee.
