    This is a really powerful story @Cyndi wilkins and one I certainly relate to. It's like your life bucket gets turned upside down and you get terrified and try to grab all the life pieces and put them back together the way they were before knowing it's impossible. I absolutely believe a toxic situation caused my body to breakdown and I ended up having 3 major surgeries in year including a spinal fusion. It's really amazing how you express that "being given an opportunity to recognize and release that fear once and for all, so I could move forward and help my partner in doing the same" leading to "That shift in perception for me brought with it a sense of peace in being supportive in a committed relationship, rather than fearful for our physical survival and security". I am walking through some fears right now and look forward to being a able to tell a similar story. Thank you. Your healing energy came through this piece.

    #3 Your friend sounds like a shaman @Sarah Elkins....To a well trained therapist, the conditions of the energetic systems, or chakras, is easily revealed via careful observation of one's body language...Your friend saw something the moment she took one look at you and knew exactly what you needed in the moment...I hope you have her on speed dial...never know what can happen;-) LOL...Thanks for sharing that...it validates the whole point of this article.

    #2 Sometimes we don't even know why we are inhibited by certain fears...the memories are buried so deep. This type of deep manual manipulation of the tissues can unlock those hidden treasures we have tucked away for safe keeping...When something surfaces, it is calling our attention to what is happening in our present that is being influenced by a past 'unresolved' emotion...and by unresolved I mean it has gone unrecognized as the catalyst to our current mind set...once we make that 'conscious' connection and release it from our physical being via movement, meditation, storytelling etc...we are able to move past it and embrace our new found freedom from the cage we have built around ourselves...Right @Deb 🐝 Helfrich;-)

    I love this, @Cyndi wilkins, because I can visualize and imagine the entire story, from the release into your memory to the memory itself, and back again to the present moment. When I was in a toxic job, a friend and Pilates guru called me using Skype. She took one look at me and gave me a breathing exercise to do, telling me to do it right then at that moment. I started the exercise, and about 30 seconds into it started to sob. I hadn't cried in many months, but something about that physical activity created an incredible emotional release. My entire being felt less restricted after that.

    I'm glad you posted this story, because I know how wonderful it is to grow and improve in your gifts as a result of helping others.

    The title for this buzz is so apt Cyndi. Healing the healer. The cure and healing lies within us. The answers lie within us but we go out looking for them or wait someone to tell us but what we really need is for someone to show us. And when you showed your self by sharing the experience the healing began. We are most of the time scared and unable to let go of those wounds caused by people, places and things. Its time to open up to ourselves and show ourselves what we are truly capable of.

    #29 Personally, they've never worked for me. Some people say Kava works. Studies have been done which state Kava doesn't. I never benefited from it. Maybe others would know? They do sell teas specifically for stress, a company named Yogi sells one. You can get it in the grocery store. It wouldn't hurt to try, maybe it would work for you. B vitamins are supposed to be really good for anxiety. You have to take B Complex with B12. I buy both and get sublingual drops. They sell sublingual B12 too. It takes time for a vitamin regime to begin to work if it's going to but that is well worth trying.

    #15 Hi @Renée 🐝 Cormier, sadly with GAD (Generalized Anxiety Disorder) thoughts do control you in a strange way. That's one of the reasons I'm in therapy working on reprogramming my brain per se. Intrusive thoughts are unwanted thoughts that play over and over like a broken record in your mind no matter what thoughts you try to replace them with, they return instantly. I never realized how much my thoughts controlled me until I sought help. That is *one* of my issues and I actually thought for a very long time that I was weak and should be able to control my thoughts- I worked hard daily w/out success and just became more worn down physically, When people are inflicted with intrusive thoughts they beat themselves up more than anyone. Logically, a person will keep saying, "This is BS, I need to stop thinking these thoughts, re-direct... think about all the positive things going on, think of wonderful memories," eg, it's only a temporary (very temporary) reprieve. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a negative Nancy no matter how it may appear when I write. I agree, we can choose our thoughts but we aren't always in control. I appreciate you taking the time to read this. :)

    You'll excuse my language, @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher, but one of the most therapeutic things you can do is tell your brain to "f**k off." I know it sounds crazy but our rambling minds can sometimes create panic that goes way beyond reality. Every time you feel anxious, just use those two little words. Say them to yourself or say them out loud. And just keep saying it until your brain calms down.

    Avoid cold foods, more than 12 hr old foods and cold milk after sundown.

    Reduce coffee, add cinnamon to it.

    People may suggest psyllum husk with curd , its a great remedy but if you get used to it then in the old age you would be at its mercy, rather in bad conditions do it twice a month.

    Try half a spoon of raw honey + raw garlic every morning empty stomach. Increase raw garlic, ginger, fenugreek in diet added in small quantities to food or taken before /after.

    If you can have cayenne pepper sprinkled almonds everyday, do it.

    On bad days dont have beans peas and cabbage. If you can have unpealed apples great.

    If you can get 5 minutes of sun between 7 am and 10 am everyday, take it.

    I was an intern in a less popular but most respected Ayurveda academy as a kid and these things work.

    #6 Hi Robert, yes, you are right about the HH. I thought I probably had that but I was prescribed omeraprazole, and that seemed to help for acid-type symptoms. The only way to know for sure was to go for a barium swallow, which I have not yet done. Things settled down due to lifestyle changes, so I didn't feel the need. But if it ever gets really bad, will have to go do that.

    Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    06/03/2017 #7 Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    #4 #5 This is a tricky condition and the single best thing anyone can do is keep a rigorous food journal, and learn a bit about the digestive process. i.e. how long after eating do symptoms arise & what was the primary macronutrient.

    Carbohydrates bypass the stomach. If the issue is happening relatively soon after eating, the source is in the stomach and that brings you to protein and/or fat digestion.

    Antacids are a serious problem, as we need that acid to break down amino and fatty acids. Adding in ACV or lemon juice for bloating that occurs an hour or so after eating can provide pretty immediate results, if this is actually the problem.

    Further along the intestinal tract, Gas, in and of itself, is natural, especially for anything loaded with fiber. And this is where it can be trial and error to observe what you are having trouble digesting and which gut bugs are missing to assist in breaking down which sort of nutritional substrate.

    Since you both seem to be eating lots of veg, I'd recommend looking into Soil-based probiotics rather than the standard Lactobacillus stuff which tends to not be able to travel below the stomach because it cannot survive gastric acid.

    Here is a reference from a product that I have used: http://www.prescript-assist.com/intestinal-health/soil-probiotics/

    If the problem seems to resemble a leaky gut, which is a specialty of our modern highly specialized gluten molecule, I'd suggest looking into l-glutamine, which helps me reverse my gluten sensitivity, as long as I moderate consumption.

    The key to sorting it out for good (because you do eat 3+ times every single day) is to get clear on what foods and where they trigger symptoms.

    #4 Hi @Sandra Smith - please do let me know what pro-biotics worked for you! I did get some here in SA from the Chemist that were specifically designed for IBS and they did work pretty well. I've just run out and will get some more tomorrow.

    #2 I've heard that a lot, Claire about antibiotics. Some of the stories on the forums are awful. I used to take a lot of Advil, which I'm sure didn't help. I mostly avoid it now unless doctor recommends. Glad you've got some relief, and happy to send you the names of the probiotics that worked (also, Easiyo yogurt and kefir!!)
    Claire L Cardwell
    06/03/2017 #2 Claire L Cardwell
    @Sandra Smith- Thanks for this! Very useful advice. I had gluten intolerance and used to have flare ups from time to time in the past if I over-indulged. However this year I got IBS in earnest. I had to take some antibiotics to try and clear up an eye condition and have suffered as a result. The pain and bloating have been very debilitating to say the least. I've been feeling a lot better over the last month, and I put this down to a) cutting out wheat and gluten entirely from my diet b) eating much smaller portion sizes and c) eating a lot of fruit and vegetables.

    #16 I think it would benefit you immensely, @Lyon Brave. You do a very fine job of writing through it, but there is another level of healing when you can have an honest conversation to express it all with an eye towards that deep body sigh that signals it is safe to move on to what is next.

    I identify a lot with where you are right now. I recognize myself in my 20s. No one really told me I could design the perfect life I wanted to live. It won't be easy, but you will have more freedom, even if the financial struggles continue, if you excavate your own path. You've got so much raw talent, but the truth of the world right now is that you need to 'package' yourself with a specific, although in no way standard, job title so that the people and companies with money know what you are capable of doing.

    If you wanna skype, DM me. I have a little time over the next two weeks, and then I'll be pretty occupied as I will 'see' your OH to FL relo and raise you with a WA -> MA drive.

    #13 You've highlighted the very thin line between anger and danger, @debasish majumder. I think that is why we find it easy to want to ignore these feelings, bury them, and pretend everything is fine. It is incredibly hard to express anger in a constructive way, and yet, learning this skill is pretty crucial for living a contented and meaningful life.

    Knowing the things that draw our ire - the things we will not tolerate - helps us navigate life in a direction that will ultimately bring us to serenity, while ignoring anger is very likely to dump us right into situations that trigger the emotion in ever-escalating cycles.

    Like so many things in life, the way to learn how to deal constructively with anger is to practice and @Cyndi wilkins and I are finding this buddy system to be a fun, fruitful, and sometimes profound way to express feelings, understand life-long patterns, and start to change the way we feel so that we move on, full of hope, curiosity, and delight.

    As a manual therapist by training, I am more accustomed to using therapeutic touch to interpret the signals that the physical body communicates to me. In that way I can assist my client in the release of their pain through soft tissue manipulation. This was more of a cerebral experience where I really had to trust my intuition to guide me ...@Deb 🐝 Helfrich and I were both challenged to engage ALL of our senses...particularly sight, sound and body language, in an effort to tap into the "emotion" trying to make its way to the surface. Once we did that, we could have a little "playdate" with it...give it expression in a supportive environment where it can be transformed through the eyes of others as they reflect back to us the lessons to be learned from our collective experiences.
    These "patterns of behavior" are inherent within all of us. As society has taught us to bury our emotions like an unnecessary appendage, it is high time we did a little excavating of those old bones and shed new light on how we express ourselves effectively.

    #1 Of course, you picked out my favorite sentence, @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. And added so much more by extending it to the very important concept of SELF-NEGOTIATION. I actually think that is the core of learning to be a happy and well-adjusted human being.

    Self-negotiation is learning about ourselves and how we react and questioning which parts of our actions and habits may be due to factors way beyond something as innocuous as a comment by a stranger that causes us to lash out in ways harmful to our own bodily equilibrium and meant to throw someone else off of their balance, regardless of who else might be inflicted unintended damage.

    That sort of behavior solves nothing, generates nothing but hostility in return and actually becomes an ever increasing cycle since the actual wrong never had a chance to be rationally discussed.

    I think the first step to being able to find the insight in anger is learning how other people process anger in ways that actually allow the emotion to resolve whatever situation first brought the feelings of hostility into focus.

    Dear @Deb 🐝 Helfrich- wonderful buzz. You said it in one line "Being able to express ourselves, and all our emotions, with clarity is part of the dance of negotiation that every human needs to learn to live a joyful, productive, and relatively stress-less life". You bring up to my understanding a hugely important point. We need to negotiate with ourselves as we do with others. Self-negotiation is an idea that strikes me powerfully. Great reading and is worthy of sharing.

    Hah! Yes, my husband learned this lesson the hard way after being diagnosed as a Celiac 7 years ago. He was so excited to be able to finally eat things like (gluten-free) bread and pasta again, but the weight came on pretty quickly. A lot of people seem to think that gluten free is the automatic equivalent to healthy, but it isn't. It's true that SOME GF foods are healthier, but most of those are naturally healthy foods like fruits and veggies. Anything processed or full of carbs is still going to make you gain weight if you eat enough of it. Our dietician told us people going gf thinking they'll lose weight easily is the #1 classic mistake.

    WED, 1/11, 8pm PST

    Link to upcoming show:

    When it comes to romance, foreplay, seduction- most of us want to be enticed. For many of us, we either don't know how to ask for what we want when being enticed or how to even entice our loved one.

Not only that, we will be touching on how to find our voice to ask for what we want in the bedroom and why Tiffany believes being able to vocalize your needs contributes to other aspects of your life as well. Other topics we will be discussing include: the importance of self image, exploring our bodies, and even how to responsibly talk to our children about sexuality. Tiffany will also be sharing what Entice Me Soirees have to offer as well as what it takes to be a "Sexinista".

    Join us WED, 1/4, 8pm PST

    Link to upcoming show:

    A Clown Escort?!! WTF is exactly what I first thought when researching guests for my first sexual wellness show. I thought, really...this is who I want to bring on as my first guest? And then I thought, F#CK yeah- most definitely! What a way to break the ice on such a serious and often taboo subject. Then once I got Sugar Weasel on the phone, I definitely knew it was meant to be. We shared lots of laughs and honest truths that just resonated- and I thought it might with some of you too.

    Some may find it absurd, hilarious, and outright freakish but most by now have got to be as curious as I was into the world of Sugar Weasal.

    Tonight Sugar Weasel (his stage name of course or if you prefer to tell your Momma that you listened to a guy named Douglas Wright on my show...by all means, say that instead) joins us and shares a peek into his world, how he got into the Adult Entertainment business and why he decided to become a "Clown Escort" of all things. To quote, "It's not easy being Sugar Weasel, people either want to fight or fondle you." Not only that, listeners will get to hear the highs and lows of what it's like from a male's perspective being in Adult Entertainment. We will also be discussing Sugar Weasel's ideas on how to have a healthy and fun sex life.

    Sugar Weasel has performed the world over, whether in private or for large groups along with being featured on numerous shows and magazines- and is an Artist of various talents.

    I ran an 8-week jump start program that started before Thanksgiving to help clients get through the holidays without gaining weight and to get a jump start on their 2017 goals. This morning we had our final session of the 8-weeks and I am BLOWN AWAY by what they've accomplished!

    This amazing couple lost over 15lbs; dropped 6% body fat; lost 8.5 inches between the two of them, with hubby gaining girth in the biceps, thighs, and calves while loosing in the waist and hips (and let's be honest, girl, you didn't have a lot to lose to begin with and still lost 5 1/4"!!). When it came to the fitness assessment there were AMAZING gains! He shaved 1:44 off his original time, and she took off an impressive 1:55!!! Nearly 2 minutes off their prior times!

    Keep in mind, this all occurred during the holidays - we started training together November 2nd. These incredible changes took place over the course of a short, 8 weeks, with Thanksgiving, holiday parties, and wedding taking place during this time and they STILL lost weight and body fat, lost inches and gained muscle mass where they wanted to, and improved their fitness level by leaps and bounds!

    Imagine what we can accomplish together in 2017. Are you ready to take your fitness and health to the next level? Take advantage of my next 8-week Jumpstart program beginning January 2nd. Yes, couples are welcome (contact me for couple pricing), and payment plans are available. #Committoyou #newyearnewyou #successispossible #resultsorientedfitness #bringingfitnesstoyou #inhomepersonaltraining #onlinetraining

    I've again been seeing the meme circulating that claims broccoli has more protein than steak. This is one of those memes that really frustrate me because it's incorrect on so many levels. Not to discount the nutritional value of broccoli, which I happen to eat quite a lot of....alongside my steak!

    Whether you're looking at 100 calories or each or 100 grams of each, when it comes to protein broccoli doesn't even comes close to steak.

    #3 #2 I think Jenn is around a couple times a week - so her answer may be around the corner.

    My own answer is "gut bugs". From our saliva to the end of the process the enzymes and bacteria are different. To be direct, most of us have seen plant matter enjoy the journey rather uneffected. That means we do not have the proper digestive partners to extract nutrition from that plant.

    As healthy as plants unquestionably are - there is still a curiously overlooked question about how much nutrition we extract from vegetables as we are missing some of the machinery like rumens that break down plants effectively.

    Other folks with a different microbial climate may find digesting fats challenging.

    Amino acids ultimately are processed as glucose at the point we derive metabolic energy from them.

    I have a buzz in me on nutritional topics, but, in essence given our omnivore status - the best diet for anyone today might be the opposite diet they've been eating for the last, say 6 months. Random rotation within or to the extremes of very low carb to ultra high carb keep our entire set of bodily machinery lubed and ready to assist us in whatever environmental conditions we find ourselves.

    Personally, I just cannot recommend plain old not eating any more highly. Digestive problems vanish if you stop eating long enough. That is my own repeated finding. I have not eaten on about 50% of the days for the last 6 weeks. I go on 2 or 3 day fast or feast cycles, making only one nutrition change - the removal of gluten - and I am experiencing the same tremendous results as my last 6 week bout of alternate day fasting.

    Thanks for this share, @Jenn Koscelnik. We are so twisted up in nutritional information these days. The actual values on the other 2 macros is also important to note - sirloin is carbohydrate free, while broccoli has fat.

    A lot of the fat in the marketplace falls under the category of "Vegetable Oils", after all.

    But that said, the amino acid profile of potatoes is impressive. I took Ray Cronise's "potato hack" challenge, eating only potatoes for 18 days which was very illuminating. Lots of pros, zero cons - for me. Of course, it is a very finite intervention applicable only on a very short term timeframe.

    I've been experimenting with making coconut milk kefir, and think I've found a good recipe - one I actually enjoy and not just tolerate because it's good for me!

    Breakfast is a bowl of strawberries and granny smith apple, with coconut flakes and a variety of seeds (hemp, flax, and pumpkin), with my new kefir poured over top. It's a bowl filled with probiotics, fiber, healthy fats, and phytonutrients - the perfect way to start the day!
