#189: How to Live on Purpose with Antonio Neves
Do you ever find yourself just going along on autopilot, not stopping to think what you’re doing or why you’re doing it? Do you ever forget why you agreed to a meeting or project, or wonder how you got to where you are in life right now?  On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host Dhru talks to Antonio Neves, an internationally recognized leadership speaker, author, and award-winning journalist. He is the author of three books, and his latest book, Stop Living On Autopilot: Take Responsibility for Your Life and Rediscover a Bolder, Happier You, was just released. On his podcast The Best Thing, Antonio talks with leaders about the best thing to happen to them that would never appear on a resume. Antonio’s speaking audiences over the years have included: Google, Amazon, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, Booking.com, Credit Union National Association (CUNA), Stanford University, and more. For over 10 years, Antonio worked as a correspondent in New York City with top television networks including NBC, PBS, and BET Networks. Antonio is a graduate of Western Michigan University and holds a master’s degree from Columbia University.    In this episode, Dhru and Antonio talk about how to own your past and accept where you are today so you can move forward. They discuss the importance of getting the right advice from friends, and why statements like “Don’t worry, it’s never too late,” or “Maybe it wasn’t meant to be,” can be harmful. They also talk about how to be an active player in your own life and start living on your own terms and why what you do when no one is watching will determine your success or failure in life.    In this episode, we dive into:   -What living on autopilot looks like (2:26)  -Antonio’s personal transformation journey (4:39) -Why we must believe the best is ahead, and that the “best thing” hasn’t happened yet (15:15)  -Taking inventory of the last 30 days of your life (26:26) -How to get clear on what you want (38:59) -Why your dreams have an expiration (49:20) -The value of having honest friendships in your life (57:02) -The importance of not just committing, but recommitting everyday to what is most important to you (1:05:45) -Why people give up on their dreams (1:11:56) -The stories we have yet to accept in our lives (1:17:04)  For more on Antonio Neves you can follow him on Instagram @TheAntonioNeves, on Facebook @TheAntonioNeves, on Twitter @TheAntonioNeves, on YouTube @TheAntonioNeves, and through his website https://theantonioneves.com/.

#57 Fatal Conveniences™: Tea Bags: Are They Safe?
Tea is an amazing way to utilize the health benefits of plants. I drink tea daily, and you should, too. But do we really want to soak a bag made of who-knows-what in hot water and drink it? Folks, it’s time to talk about store-bought tea bags. Welcome to Fatal Conveniences™ This is a bite-sized segment that parallels The Darin Olien Show. In these segments, we get into society's Fatal Conveniences™. I define these as the things we may be doing because the world we live in makes us believe we have to. These things save us time and trick us into thinking they're actually good for us. But it's those same things that are breaking down our health, and the health of the environment around us. I've spent most of my adult life obsessively researching these "conveniences." On every show, I pick one topic, and we dive into it. My goal is to make you more aware of these traps so that you can push back on them. Remember, it starts with you and the choices you make. So, if you're willing to look at your world from a different perspective and make little tweaks that amount to big changes, then this segment is for you. Most store-bought tea bags are made of layered plastic. Yes, your healthy green, black and other herbal teas come in a bag full of toxic plastic. Then you’re seeping this plastic bag into hot water as its toxins leak into the liquid. You’re drinking plastic tea! This is terrible, guys. Tea is a healthy product. And we’re transforming it into something unhealthy. Why? Because it’s cheaper for companies to make a leak-free bag out of plastic than other materials. This is just silly. In this segment, I’m going to break down how and why tea bags are made with toxic plastic and what it’s doing to your body. I don’t want you to stop drinking tea, I just want you to be aware of better alternatives. I prefer using a stainless steel mesh tea ball or just making loose leaf teas. But there are some amazing tea companies out there making safe tea bags, so I’ll tell you all about those, too. Listen up, guys, it’s tea time. Other info in this segment: The history of tea bags What chemicals lurk in the tea bag materials The major brands to avoid The majesty that is loose leaf tea Tea balls Responsible brands that make safe tea bags Links & Resources: Video: How to Test Your Tea Bags for Plastic Plastic teas release billions of microparticles Time Magazine: A Brief History of the Tea Bag BBC News: Microplastics Video: What Tea Bags Brands Contain Plastic?

TMHS 454: The Surprising Truth About Thyroid Health & The Thyroid Reset Diet - With Dr. Alan Christianson
In recent years, rates of thyroid disease have skyrocketed. And when you think about it, it’s really no surprise. When it comes to managing our health, the thyroid is a relatively overlooked piece of the puzzle. This small but mighty butterfly-shaped organ controls a multitude of functions in the body, including metabolism, tissue repair, hormone production, and more. Because the thyroid controls so many mechanisms in the body, a malfunctioning thyroid can cause symptoms like weight gain, fatigue, inflammation, and memory loss. While there’s a lack of accessible information about thyroid health, there’s also a lot of misinformation out there. In his new book, The Thyroid Reset Diet, Dr. Alan Christianson shares his latest research on thyroid health and strategies for restoring thyroid function. On today’s show, he’s sharing incredible insights from his research including statistics on thyroid disease, what you need to know about iodine consumption, and real solutions for regaining thyroid health. Enjoy! In this episode you’ll discover: * What the thyroid gland is, and what it’s responsible for in the body. * The role that iodine plays in the function of the thyroid. * What the two chemical forms of iodine are. * How much iodine you need for optimal thyroid function. * Why you won’t find iodine listed on food labels. * What can happen if you consume too much iodine. * Why thyroid disease rates have roughly tripled in the last few decades. * What a thyroid storm is, and the only way to cure it. * The three different types of thyroid diseases. * Why iodine is like bleach. * How the autoimmune disease, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, occurs. * The three big drivers of thyroid disease. * What you need to know about iodine hiding in your personal care products. * Real food sources of iodine. * Why exercise is a key component of thyroid health.

250: How to Heal from SIBO Without SIBO Taking Over Your Life w/ Phoebe Lapine
If You Want To Heal Your SIBO You Should: * Address the three main risk factor buckets and identify the root cause of your bacteria overgrowth * Find a bodyworker to help you navigate which protocol will work best for you * Embrace a beautifully diverse diet by focusing on an anti-inflammatory protocol SIBO, or Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth, affects millions of people but can be difficult to nail down. Unlike other gut imbalances, SIBO happens when there is an overgrowth of bacteria in the upper part of your digestive tract. Because of the importance of the location of this bacteria, it takes the right support to heal your gut and reduce your inflammation. Healing SIBO Through Food with Phoebe Lapine Phoebe Lapine believes that food can and should be medicine. A writer, gluten-free chef, culinary instructor, Hashimoto’s advocate and so much more, Phoebe is here to share her story of autoimmune disease and healing SIBO from the inside out. What You Need To Know About SIBO Due to stress, lifestyle factors, and hormones, women suffer from SIBO far more often than men. It is important to understand the connections between all of these factors so that you can uncomplicate your symptoms and work on finding the healing protocol that is right for you. Everything from structural issues in your gut to your body's ability to kill bacteria can have an impact on your likelihood of developing SIBO. Gas, bloating, thyroid hormones, and so much more can play a role here, which is why it is essential to equip yourself with the necessary knowledge to address your gut dysbiosis in the best way possible. Finding the Right Treatment for Your Body Addressing bacteria overgrowth takes an individualized approach to be the most effective possible. Antibiotics, herbs, and different diets can all be helpful depending on your unique sensitivity, lifestyle, and detox methods. It is important to know what you are working with before you start to treat your symptoms. Phoebe suggests starting from a place of anti-inflammatory protocols. You don't have to stop enjoying food to cure your gut bacteria; all it takes is the knowledge to guide yourself through gut complications and get to a place of a beautifully diverse diet. Phoebe is a real example of the amazing possibilities of healing SIBO and clearing up what is going on in the body through food, lifestyle, and body kindness. Do you or someone you love suffer from SIBO? Share which of Phoebe’s tips you are going to incorporate into your daily routine with me in the comments section of the episode page. Quotes: “Sometimes you just need help getting onto a higher plateau of healing.” (18:56) “At the end of the day, this is all just connected tissue, and fascia and soft tissue muscles, and we have to make sure those are working, which is a whole different ballgame from the bacteria situation.” (24:58) - Dr. Mariza “SIBO to me explains why a low fodmap diet is effective in terms of symptoms, because if you have perfectly normal bacteria in the wrong place too far up your digestive tract, and you feed them the foods they enjoy most, then, of course, you are going to have some sort of gas as part of that, having it be too far up your intestinal tract as well.” (33:18) “It's never just SIBO, there is usually kind of a bigger issue at play, even if it is not necessarily causing the issue in of itself.” (33:33) “Diversity is the spice of life, and we don't want to be overloading our system with large quantities of one ingredient.” (38:31) In This Episode * Why women are more susceptible to SIBO than men (12:21) * The three different buckets that can impact your gut and hormone symbiosis (19:38) * Where to start when testing for SIBO and other digestive issues (25:42) * Which foods you should be focusing on to fix your SIBO and inflammation (31:34) * How to embrace the diversity of life with anti-inflammatory versions of comfort food (38:25) Resources Mentioned: Order the SIBO Made Simple Book Here SIBO Made Simple Website SIBO Made Simple Podcast Feed Me Phoebe Website The Wellness Project Website Follow Phoebe on Instagram Dr. Allison Siebecker Website Related Episodes: Essentially You Episode #230: Dismantling Myths About Leaky Gut, Gut Health and Probiotics with Tina Anderson Other Resources: Check out the full show notes page Keep up with everything Dr. Mariza Follow Dr. Mariza on Facebook | Instagram | Twitter | Youtube Podcast production & marketing support by the team at Counterweight Creative
