  • All of my life I have known that I was a descendant of Native Americans…”Indian” they called it, but I had no idea of what that meant. My ethnicity has always been questioned, and as a child my long, thick braids would garner comments of “Oh, you look just like a little Indian girl”. My response was always, “Okay”.

    As time passed and I grew up, I began to hear less of “You look Indian” and more of “What are you?” or “Where are you from?” I heard comments like, “You don’t really look Black” to “Yeah, you’re Black, but not Black, Black”. So what does that mean and what were they trying to say?

    Obviously, to the people asking me these questions, they were not unreasonable. I thought it was very obvious that I was Black and there should be no reason to question that. Yes, I have Native American ancestry, but in my mind I was Black and that was that.

    Over the years, I continued to periodically get these questions from people of various cultures and ethnicities—Black, White, Asian, etc. I was most unnerved by these questions when they came from Black people because I thought that they should already know. Well, I was wrong. They questioned me because they really did not know.

  • The funny thing is that Sarah Elliston never realized she was “a difficult person,” —someone who harangued people until she got her way, threw snip fits and temper tantrums, talked over her bosses and pointed out what she thought were their misconceptions. In her family, where she felt bullied, the only way she knew how to get someone’s attention and approval was to voice her opinion—and loudly! Without standing her ground, how could she do what she thought was best for herself and everyone else around her. She wasn’t intentionally mean-spirited. She was just trying to do what she thought was RIGHT!

    Until a kind, but firm, boss woke her up! With great compassion, and strength, her boss pointed out that her actions had consequences. That in being “difficult,” she was not only disrupting the office camaraderie and production, but impeding her own professional advancement.

    In this conversation we role play a conversation with a “difficult “ person

  • Health Notes talks with renowned cardiologist, Dr. William Davis about how eliminating wheat from our diets can prevent fat storage, shrink unsightly bulges, and reverse myriad health problems.

    Every day, over 200 million Americans consume food products made of wheat. As a result, over 100 million of them experience some form of adverse health effect, ranging from minor rashes and high blood sugar to the unattractive stomach bulges that preventive cardiologist William Davis calls “wheat bellies.” According to Davis, that excess fat has nothing to do with gluttony, sloth, or too much butter: It’s due to the whole grain wraps we eat for lunch.

    After witnessing over 2,000 patients regain their health after giving up wheat, Davis reached the disturbing conclusion that wheat is the single largest contributor to the nationwide obesity epidemic.

  • In 1998, author Paul Huljich was diagnosed by psychiatrists as suffering from Bipolar Disorder, also known as manic depression. That year, he experienced a full mental breakdown, lost his rights as a citizen and was made a ward of the state.

    Informed that there was no cure, that he would eventually relapse, and that he would be dependent on medication for the rest of his life, Huljich traveled to the world-renowned Mayo Clinic in Minnesota for treatment and later admitted himself to the Menninger Clinic in Kansas to more fully understand and address his condition. Aided by research and his background in organic foods, Huljich developed a diet, exercise, and wellness plan that would help him end his dependence on medication to cure himself and find true peace of mind.

    Since the year 2000, Huljich has not taken any psychotropic or psychiatric medication or any medication related to mental illness. Nor has he suffered any relapse of depression or manic depression, or received further treatment from any psychiatrist, therapist, or doctor regarding mental illness. He has never felt better.

  • A new epidemic is sweeping the country. Some people call it “ADHD,” “scatter brain,” or “brain fog.” And some people simply say they “just don’t feel like themselves”—and haven’t for a long time.

    People are thinking and feeling worse than ever. Why? Because our brains are not getting the support they need to produce the essential brain chemicals that keep us energized, calm, focused, and inspired. In fact, if you look at the way that most of us live, it’s almost as though we had chosen a lifestyle deliberately intended to undermine our brain chemistry.

    Fortunately, there is a solution. The Brain Fog Fix is a three-week program designed to help you naturally restore three of your brain’s most crucial chemicals: serotonin, dopamine, and cortisol. Rebalancing these three brain chemicals will, in turn, enable the rest of your brain’s chemistry to reach optimal levels. You will find yourself thinking more clearly, remembering more accurately, learning more quickly, and unleashing the floodgates of your creativity. You will also find yourself feeling more optimistic, calm, energized, connected, and inspired.

    The good news is that this is easier than you think. Instead of trying to ambitiously overhaul one aspect of your life entirely with some difficult-to-maintain resolution, begin by making small and achievable changes in many different areas of your life.

  • In the New York Times bestseller The Plant Paradox, Dr. Steven Gundry introduced readers to the hidden toxins lurking in seemingly healthy foods like tomatoes, zucchini, quinoa, and brown rice: a class of plant-based proteins called lectins. Many people are familiar with one of the most predominant lectins—a substance called gluten, which is found in wheat and other grains. But while cutting out the bread and going gluten-free is relatively straightforward, going lectin-free is no small task.

    Now, in The Plant Paradox Cookbook, Dr. Gundry breaks down lectin-free eating step by step and shares one hundred of his favorite healthy recipes. Dr. Gundry talks about his Plant Paradox program and shows listeners how to overhaul their pantries and shopping lists to make delicious, simple, seasonal, lectin-free meals. He’ll also share his hacks for making high-lectin foods safe to eat, including methods like pressure-cooking grains and peeling and deseeding tomatoes.
