You’ve probably heard of hypnotherapy as a way to help a person stop smoking, start sleeping, or deal with a fear of flying. It does do that, and more!  

 

In today’s episode I had the chance to talk with my friend Alexandra (Sasha) Tarakanov, clinical hypnotherapist all about the benefits of hypnotherapy and the life-changing results her clients experience.  

 

Clinical hypnotherapy, like many things, has specialties and established methods therapists can be trained in and offer to clients, including past life regression. Alexandra is 1 of 26 people who have completed level 3 of Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique (QHHT), a process that allows participants to access a part of themselves that holds the answers.  

 

 

In this episode, Alexandra shares about:  

 

-Why she chose to become a hypnotherapist 

 

-Example experiences from her clients over the past 8 years 

 

-Why people fear hypnosis, and why there is nothing to be afraid of 

 

-How hypnotherapy helps us to become more “in control” of our lives 

 

-Why revisiting your past, with hypnotherapy, can help you change your future 

 

-How spiritual transformation occurs during hypnotherapy sessions 

 

-Why it is especially helpful for Highly Sensitive people to use hypnosis 

 

-How it is possible to use hypnotherapy in a group and in an online program 

 

 

Alexandra is now sharing her own hypnotherapy method, where she teaches people to use self-hypnosis for personal growth. She uses her spiritual guidance to help people find and connect with their own spiritual guides. 

 

 

If you have been struggling with your health and have a feeling that having a spiritual connection would help you, then definitely listen in to this podcast. Don’t leave hypnosis as a “last resort” – it offers gentle and yet profound healing opportunities to know yourself better and give yourself the support you need.

Statistics show that 30 million Americans have struggled with an eating disorder at some point in their lives. The most common eating disorders are anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, and orthorexia. Over exercising, overeating, and using food to avoid intolerable situations are also forms of disordered eating. 

 

Many people with eating disorders go through conventional treatment, which is strict and based on managing weight and calories. It’s not focused on how the person’s psychology is underlying the condition, or how the condition is affecting their psychology.  

 

-

 

In this episode of How Humans Heal I spoke with Mindy Gorman-Plutzer of The Freedom Promise [@thefreedompromise] who is changing the way support is offered for those with eating disorders.  

 

Mindy herself recovered from an eating disorder, and in the process, observed what was missing from the treatment, and became passionate about offering other solutions for people going through eating challenges and desiring the same sort of transformation.  

 

-

 

We discuss: 

-How all systems of the body and mind are connected 

 

-The difference between “Doing recovery” versus being recovered 

 

-The power of story to understand the context of the behaviors 

 

-The behaviors started out as a solution; they are not the problem 

 

-Eating disorders versus disordered eating 

 

-How digestive issues are so common with eating disorders 

 

-The gut-brain axis 

 

-The benefits of supporting vagal tone 

 

-And so much more 

 

 

Mindy explains that the definition of recovery is to regain what was lost. When we lose ourselves to compulsive behaviors, we lose a part of ourselves. The part that is left is bound by rules. Mindy thinks of recovery as liberation. She emphasizes that recovery looks different for everybody because we are unique individuals.  

 

Our first experience of being seen in life was related to eating. As we start to develop autonomy, if we don’t feel safe, we always have food to turn to. It helps us and represents love and safety. Pile on cultural messages related to food and diet, and we end up in comparison instead of connection. We become disconnected from the wisdom of our bodies. It is no wonder that eating disorders are so common. 

 

 

90-98% of people with eating disorders today also have severe digestive distress. Children who have digestive issues, have a higher predisposition to an eating disorder later in life. It is important to address digestion and reactions to foods in the recovery process, to really allow the person to understand and reconnect with their own bodies. 

 

-

 

I love how Mindy shares her insight into how humans heal: “Humans heal when they feel empowered. When they are involved in a therapeutic partnership with a practitioner who knows how to listen. We can become the masters of our own healing.”  

 

She wishes she could get the decades of her life back that she gave up to the scale and the image she thought she needed to project. Now she helps others find the sacred space of solitude in themselves where there is no fear. 

 

-

 

If you are someone you know is struggling with eating or your relationship with food, please listen in to this episode. To know that there is another way of supporting you through the process of recovery can be empowering itself.

In this episode, we’ll be discussing metabolism. One of the most common questions I am asked is “what is metabolism?” I’m glad you asked! Metabolism is the essential process our bodies do to turn our food into energy.  

 

That’s the energy we use to wake up in the morning, get through our day, create art, play music, dance, and enjoy our loved ones.  

 

In our busy lives, it is easy to take metabolism for granted. It’s just what our bodies do.  

 

If you start to notice weight gain, fatigue, brain fog, or if you are diagnosed with diabetes, cancer, high cholesterol, fatty liver, and/or cognitive decline, it is likely your metabolism is struggling.  

 

-

 

Listen in to this episode where I talk about what bogs down the metabolism, including: 

 

-Stress 

-Environmental toxins 

-Imbalanced gut bacteria 

-Inflammatory foods 

-Sugar and a high carb diet 

-Leaky gut 

-High cortisol 

 

-

 

What helps improve metabolism?  

 

-Eat less sugar 

-Include protein in every meal 

-Eat smaller meals 

-Stress reducing activities 

-Choose organic food and toxin-free products 

-AND…one of the best examples of eating to improve metabolism is the Mediterranean Diet. 

 

-

 

Research shows that the Mediterranean Diet can decrease inflammation and improve blood sugar levels. It comes down to choosing real, whole foods like vegetables, fruits, nuts, whole grains, and fish or poultry. 

 

I hope you’ll join me in this episode recorded while I was visiting the Mediterranean region of the world. I share about my favorite discoveries and meals.

In this episode, Dr. Doni and her colleague, Dr. Carol Lourie [@carollouriehealth], also a naturopathic doctor, talk about how to prevent and recover from breast cancer by giving women the support they needed all along. 

 

Carol points out that 1 in 8 women will experience breast cancer in their lifetime. After assisting her close friend through breast cancer treatment, and observing what worked and what was lacking, Carol was inspired to help other women. 

 

Now Carol uses nutrition as well as Chinese medicine and homeopathy to help women to prevent side effects, such as anemia, during chemotherapy treatment, and then to recover from treatment and prevent a recurrence.  

 -

In this episode, Carol explains:  

 

-How cancer cells do whatever they want 

 

-We need to make our bodies inhospitable to cancer 

 

-Cancer is a metabolic disease 

 

-How to feel EMPOWERED against recurrence 

 

-Why she suggests to let go of adversarial language related to cancer 

 

-Why it’s important to listen to messages from your tumor 

 

-How processing past trauma helps to prevent cancer 

 

-Sugar feeds cancer 

Breast cancer can become an illness like any other chronic disease in that it requires ongoing support and treatment. It’s important that women have a feminine and compassionate approach to addressing what caused the cancer in the first place. 

We also talk about how to eat in a way to prevent cancer, and other health issues, including a discussion of the Mediterranean Diet. And why being willing to prioritize selfcare is essential. 

 -

As Carol says, “we’re supposed to be able to do everything ourselves” is an unfortunate message that needs to change. 

-

In her program, Path of Breast Cancer, Carol has helped thousands of women to navigate breast cancer and prevent it from coming back. If you or someone you know has been looking for this kind of support, be sure to check out Carol’s website at www.CarolLourie.com
