Connection is the Key to Changing the World
Play episode · 1 hr 8 min
We are at a critical time in history. It’s the exact right time to be making changes in your life to improve the health of the planet and the environment around us. It can be a daunting task. But what if we looked at it in simpler terms? 

What if changing the world could begin with connection? By connecting with our neighbors and our community, and making a collaborative effort in how we grow our food and take care of our surroundings, we could start a ripple effect that would slowly but surely spread. 

We could change the world together.

On a recent episode of The Darin Olien Show, I sat down with my buddy Stephen Brooks. You may remember Stephen, from the third episode of my Netflix show Down to Earth, where Zac and I traveled to Costa Rica. Stephen helped create Punta Mona, one of the oldest and most bio-diverse permaculture education centers in Central America. Punta Mona is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever had the privilege of visiting, and I’m not just talkin…

In this podcast, I want to explain why coconut oil is not dangerous. "They" consider coconut oil as dangerous because it is a saturated fat that could cause clogged arteries and coronary heart disease. But that is only an example of false information. Coconut oil is 70% medium-chain triglycerides. This type of fat is very different and is actually converted into ketones for energy. I believe coconut oil is very healthy and safe. It has been around for a long time, and there are even studies that show that it may actually help lower cholesterol. SAVE 50% OFF DR.

014 Anxiety: They Say It's All In Your Head
Anxiety has many causes and triggers and can be different for everyone. Someone may have a sense of discomfort, unease, feeling no desire to keep moving, not wanting to ever be still, difficulty around crowds, feeling of nervousness, sweaty palms, or the inability to fall asleep easily because of racing thoughts. Another person could be on the bathroom floor, unable to move, body feeling numb, while trying to breathe into a paper bag. The range of anxiety isn’t 1 to 10, it’s more like 1 to 100,000, because that is how many variations of anxiety exist and how everyone can feel it differently. The symptoms of anxiety can range from mild to moderate to severe, and unless you’ve been in someone’s shoes who has struggled or suffered with anxiety, can you really understand what they’re going through. In this episode, I reveal the ten most common triggers for anxiety and how to avoid them. I describe how emotional struggles, hardships, and emotional stress can be both a trigger and a cause for anxiety, and how this can affect the emotional center of the brain. I explain how anxiety can relate to an existing health symptom or condition, such as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis (MS), lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, Lyme disease, POTS, dysautonomia, sarcoidosis, Sjogren’s syndrome, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, eczema, psoriasis, endometriosis, migraines, vertigo, tingles and numbness, aches and pains, tics and spasms, ringing in the ears, dizziness, jaw pain, neck pain, eye floaters, and blurry eyes. Learn more about how toxic heavy metals can play a role in having anxiety. Find out which fruits, leafy greens, herbs, wild foods, and vegetables are really helpful when healing anxiety, and which foods can be harmful and are best to avoid. Listen as I share specific healing tools that can help manage, control, and heal anxiety. Many people have to live their life around anxiety. Anxiety can rule their every waking moment, and can determine what they’re going to be able to accomplish in a day, and leave someone feeling hopeless. Very little about anxiety is understood to this day; but in this episode, you can learn the true causes of anxiety, and tools that can help you head into a direction of healing and putting anxiety behind you forever.
