“When a doctor says to you, “Here take this prescription,” as I have done as well, it’s disempowering to someone, you know. You’re being told you have to do this and you have this symptom and this is what will make you better. I think that nutrition and food flips that ratio and puts the person in the driver seat.” [25:14]


“Having those little things at the tips of the fingers is empowering; knowing that there are 200 names for sugar." [28:30]


“What I find is that of the different diets, the mediterranean eating pattern has consistently shown the best results for depression and anxiety.” [32:00]

David Meltzer | How to Buy Happiness by Shopping for the RIGHT Things
In today’s episode, we cover the myth about success with David Meltzer. David is the Co-founder of Sports 1 Marketing and formerly served as CEO of the renowned Leigh Steinberg Sports & Entertainment agency, which was the inspiration for the movie Jerry Maguire.   While “money can’t buy happiness” is a phrase most people in today’s world are familiar with, many of us still chase after money as if it will buy us happiness - so what is it about this truth we can’t seem to let go of and what can you do every day to lead a more fulfilling life without money?   What to Listen For What is the biggest myth about success?  What does it mean to “shop for the right things” and why is that phrase so important when you start attaining financial success? How do you start practicing gratitude when you feel like you have nothing to be grateful for? What are the 3 votes you make each day that influence whether or not you can live a successful, fulfilling life? What 3 concepts can you internalize that will give you motivation on a daily basis? What 5 daily practices can you start implementing today to help you achieve your dreams?   We grow up being told that money doesn’t buy happiness and yet we are surrounded and bombarded with messages about the crap we need to buy in order to make our lives better (aka to make us happier). And many of us are raised in a culture where we expect to give/receive material gifts every year (Christmas, birthdays, etc) because they’ll bring us joy (aka happiness). We have to be able to recognize these signals and then we must be willing to take steps to live outside of them - aware of them, but dismissive of how silly they are.   A Word From Our Sponsors Share your vulnerabilities, victories, and questions in our 17,000-member private Facebook group at theartofcharm.com/challenge.

Master Your Mental Health 101 w/ Dr. Nicole LePera (@the.holistic.psychologist)
Improve Your Sleep Quality w/ Manta: https://bit.ly/2JAF4jP Dr. Nicole LePera is a Holistic Psychologist who believes that mental wellness is for everyone. She evolved her more traditional training from Cornell University and The New School to one that acknowledges the connection between the mind and body. Dr. LePera views mental and physical struggles from a whole person perspective and works to identify the underlying physical and emotional causes. She understands that balance in an integral part of wellness and empowers individuals to heal themselves, supporting them on their wellness journeys. Dr. LePera founded the Mindful Healing Center in Center City Philadelphia where she works with individuals, couples, and families taking gut health, sleep, movement, cellular health, belief, and mindfulness into treatment. Holistic Psychology is a relatively new school of psychological thought that views the person as a whole and indivisible entity, where it is impossible to treat the mind and behavior, without taking the client's physical health, lifestyle, environment, relationships, etc. into consideration and dealing appropriately with all of these facets. This school of therapy differs from more traditional therapy methods in that it concentrates on the client's relationships and interactions with their environment and how they express these relationships through their feeling, thinking and being. This style of therapy attempts to explore and transform consciousness, rather than merely changing thought patterns or behaviors.

Everything You've Ever Wanted To Know About Fish Oil, Omega 3 Fatty Acids, EPA, DHA & Much More!
https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/fishoilpodcast After publishing my recent giant fish oil article , I've been getting plenty of questions about fish oil lately, including: -Based on human clinical research, what are the actual proven benefits of fish oil? -What kind of dosages/types of fish oil were used in studies? -Are there concerns about rancidity/oxidation when taking fish oil? -What kind of amount and EPA/DHA ratio is ideal? -Are there people who shouldn't take fish oil? -Are there certain nutrients or supplements that should be taken with fish oil? -How can one test their omega fatty acid status? And much more. So I finally decided to get a couple of true, unbiased fish oil experts on my show. is my first guest. He is an internationally recognized expert on omega-3 fatty acids and how they can benefit patients with heart disease. He obtained his Ph.D. in Human Nutrition from the University of Minnesota and did post-doctoral fellowships in Clinical Nutrition and Lipid Metabolism with Dr. Bill Connor at the Oregon Health Sciences University. His interest in omega-3 fatty acids began with his postdoctoral work when he published his first study on the effects of salmon oil on serum lipids in humans (1980). Since that time he has been the recipient of five NIH grants for studies on the effects of omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) on human health. He has more than 300 publications relating to fatty acids, including omega-3s, in medical literature and was an author on two American Heart Association scientific statements on fatty acids: “, and “ both published in the journal Circulation. Dr. Harris is a Professor in the Department of Medicine in the Sanford School of Medicine at the University of South Dakota and the President and CEO of OmegaQuant. Dr. Harris's daughter, , PhD, RD is my second guest. Kristina received her PhD in Nutritional Sciences from Pennsylvania State University in 2013 and completed her training to become a Registered Dietitian in 2014. As a graduate student, she studied under Dr. Penny Kris-Etherton, an internationally-recognized expert in fats and nutrition. She worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Colorado-Denver under Dr. John Peters in the area of worksite wellness before returning to the omega-3 field. Kristina joined the family business Analytics as a Research Associate in 2014, with a particular focus on omega-3s in maternal health, helping create the Prenatal DHA test and the Mother’s Milk DHA test. In 2020, she became Assistant Professor (non-tenure) in the Department of Internal Medicine at the University of South Dakota Sanford School of Medicine. (2020-2022). She lives in Sioux Falls, South Dakota with her husband, two kids, one old dog, and four grandparents. During this discussion, you'll discover: -The 2 sources of Omega-3 fatty acids...8:35 Plant derived fatty acid ALA, alpha linolenic acid( 18 carbons); an acid in the omega-3 family – not the same thing as the fish derived omega-3 Fish derived EPA (20 carbons) and DHA (22 carbons) Cannot get much of the good stuff from ALA (seeds and nuts) Algal oil from micro algae (single cell organism, not kelp) that make EPA/DHA naturally; at the base of the marine food chain Omega-3 fatty acids are made by plants, not fish Some companies grow these algae in big ponds, harvest the omega-3 fatty acids and put in capsules Vegan derived EPA/DHA products has exactly the same molecules as EPA/DHA derived from fish, but does not come from fish, it comes from algae Process is expensive Aquaculture industry is driving the demand for algal oil 70~80% of fish oil produced is fed back to the fish Other sources of fish oil are genetically modified land plants Canela seed oil; Australia is at the forefront to put genes into oil producing land plants, like soy beans -What makes essential fatty acids so essential...15:45 Cell membranes, made up of fatty acids, surround every cell in the body For structural aspect of the cell Provides starting products for different signaling pathways, affects how cells communicate internally and externally Membrane fluidity; more carbon and double bonds makes cell membranes more flexible and fluid Cell membranes are comprised of dietary fats The body can’t make the essential omega-6 fatty acids (linoleic) and omega-3 fatty acids(ALA and EPA/DHA); these comes from the diet Trans-fats are also dietary fats Other fats, like saturated fats and monounsaturated fats, are affected by metabolism -Omega-3 fatty acids being oxidized once it enters the body is a misconception...19:36 Oxidation has different meanings to a biochemist and a food scientist: Oxygen molecules are added to the fatty acids by enzymes in order to be activated Lipid peroxidation destroys, produces unwanted by-products; does not happen inside the body because of the different anti-oxidants that protect against this type of oxidation Article: The body has ways of cleaning up things it doesn’t want -Ratio of omega fatty-acids in the body and what the ratios should be...25:32 Good ratio of EPA to DHA is when eaten in fish EPA taken alone increases EPA and decreases DHA a little bit; increased omega-3 index - the measure of EPA/DHA in red blood cells (RBC) Pure DHA taken alone increases both EPA and DHA in RBC DHA is the predominant omega-3 fatty acid in membranes 85% DHA to 15% EPA in RBC In fish oil, total dose (EPA+DHA) is the important thing A study found the ideal optimum fatty acid levels (EPA+DHA) to be 8~12% index Ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 -Ethyl Ester and Triglyceride forms of Omega-3 fatty acids...33:20 Different ways Omega-3 fatty acids are processed and concentrated Ethyl ester is the first highly concentrated form; first to be concentrated into a capsule Triglycerides form is the more natural form (how it would be present in the fish) Most fish oil supplements in the U.S., if it does not say it is in triglyceride form, is an ethyl ester No standardized way to know if it is triglycerides or ethyl ester Biggest difference as far as bioavailability goes is if supplements are taken with meals Ethyl esters, if taken without a meal might not be absorbed at all; absorbed well if taken with a meal, preferably a meal that contains fats Triglycerides are not affected by that meal component as ethyl esters All pharmaceutical brands of fish oil are ethyl esters More EPA and DHA molecules in a 1 gram capsule if in ethyl ester form Distinction only came up around 15 years ago when ethyl ester form of fatty acids was seen as not well absorbed by the body when taken on an empty stomach Taking ethyl ester form supplements without food might not get the desired omega-3 index result -What genes convert ALA or plant-based oil into EPA/DHA...45:15 Genetic conditions that affect omega-3 fatty acid levels FADS genes produce the enzymes that convert ALA to EPA and DHA Enzymes also convert linoleic acid to arachidonic acid (polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acid) Natural variations by populations in the kinds of mutations that are present in the FADS genes can affect levels, particularly of arachidonic acid Omega-3 EPA/DHA are not much affected by the FADS genes Major genetic effect driving omega-3 levels in the population is not known Is there a genetic effect on the absorption of omega-3 in the population? No study on why a certain population has a huge absorption response while in another population, there is hardly any response Nomenclature: Omega-3 – a fatty acid where the 1ˢᵗ double bond counting from the omega carbon is in the third position Omega-6 – a fatty acid where the 1ˢᵗ double bond counting from the omega carbon is in the sixth position Cannot be inter-converted Plants can convert omega-6’s into omega-3’s, animals cannot -Ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids...52:17 “Ratio of omega-6 to omega-3” is imprecise – it’s not clear what type omega-6 or omega-3 is referred to;…

In order to grow, you need failure. Understand and accept failure as a part of life. We often experience that learning is more effective in failure than in success because failure teaches us what works and what does not. When we embrace our strengths or limitations – we become better. People are often so afraid they’ll fail at something that they don’t try. Don’t be one of those people. Everyone has failed at something in his or her life, but not everyone tries again and again. World hard every day to reach your goals and you will. Keep going and you will find success. Subscribe!

She’s also the author of New York Times bestsellers LOVE WARRIOR (an Oprah’s Book Club selection) and CARRY ON, WARRIOR. An activist and thought leader, Glennon is the founder and president of Together Rising, an all-women led nonprofit organization that has revolutionized grassroots philanthropy – raising over $25 million for women, families, and children in crisis. You might also be familiar with her wife, former U.S. women’s national team soccer star, Abby Wambach, a previous Finding Mastery guest. In this conversation, Glennon shares how getting sober shaped her life’s purpose… an absolute dedication to telling the truth, to not having secrets, to not having shame, to living as close to integrity as she can imagine. For Glennon, integrity just means integrated. Aligning her outer life… her outer words and actions, with her inner self, so that she doesn’t live with two selves. This led her to writing and more importantly, her desire to help others. We touch on the difference between philanthropy and activism, what drove her to start speaking up about racial injustice, and why this can be a good moment for our nation. ----- Please support our partners!
