If you have been struggling with your weight loss goals know that a healthy body is about more than diet and exercise. The human brain is wired to find the easiest, fastest way to satiate hunger. Unfortunately in our modern world, processed food is designed to be quick and easy. So beating yourself up for reaching for a bag of something to snack on will only cause unnecessary stress. To change existing or create new habits and behaviors we need to create new neural pathways. Drew’s guest, Eliza Kingsford, helps her patients do just that. She is a licensed psychotherapist and author of the book, Brain-Powered Weight Loss. During this episode, she shares how our emotions lead us toward certain types of food, how our mindset can shape our eating patterns and the 3 Pillar Process she uses to change people’s lives.

Great strides forward are being made in the fitness, health, and wellness space every year. In labs, rigorous testing can be applied to food/fuel sources to qualify how they affect the body in its different states of exertion. UCAN’s founders were looking for a cure for a rare genetic disease when they discovered a process of cooking a starch that led to long-lasting energy. While they didn’t find a cure for the disease, they were able to create a Superstarch that offered the afflicted with a better quality of life. And, as an incredible secondary benefit, the manipulated starch offers athletes long-lasting energy that is keto-friendly. During this episode, Drew speaks with one of the founders of UCAN, Peter Kaufman about how the team discovered the starch, how it improves workouts, and why it is a perfect addition to a keto diet.

If there ever was a sign that the world is waking up to the interconnected consciousness of our planet it is that the mainstream media is opening up its doors to shamans, astrologers, and Yogis.

It seems that Drew’s guest, Tanya Khani, aka The Soulful Publicist is that champion. Tanya is connected to most of the enlightened thought leaders of our time. She finds ways to bring mindfulness and consciousness to traditional media in an artful way. During this interview, she discusses her early adoption of transformational thinking, how the universe prodded her toward her calling, and the obstacles she faces in completing her mission.

Minerals are essential for proper body function. Mothers can increase their baby’s IQ score, improved cognitive function, and quality sleep with vivid dreams are all benefits based on the right ratio of minerals in the body. But, how do we know what minerals we may be deficient in and what minerals we may be getting too much of? Hair testing is proven more effective than blood tests in obtaining an overall picture of health by testing the elements present and omitted. To get a better understanding of how minerals improve our quality of life Drew speaks with the Founder of Upgraded Formulas, Barton Scott. Scott is a chemical engineer who created a technology using nanominerals that are absorbed by the cell without the use of digestion. During the conversation, Barton describes the personal circumstances that led him to create nanomineral technology, the manner in which minerals shape our daily lives, and some benefits of taking mineral supplements.

[16:12] Barton describes what led him to test his minerals and then to create a technology every one could benefit from. 

 

[18:19] Why a hair test offers more information about minerals than a blood test.

 

[20:04] Barton describes the purpose of common minerals and how to identify the symptoms of being deficient. 

 

[25:32] Why nanominerals are more easily absorbed by the body.
