85: Dr. Christiane Northrup: Dodging Energy Vampires (and Goddesses Never Age)

August 30, 2018
00:0000:00

"Our belief system becomes biology."

Christiane Northrup, M.D., is a visionary pioneer and a leading authority in the field of women’s health and wellness, which includes the unity of mind, body, emotions, and spirit. Internationally known for her empowering approach to women’s health and wellness, Dr. Northrup teaches women how to thrive at every stage of life.

"Getting older is the time to increase value and competency."

A board-certified OB/GYN physician, Dr. Northrup graduated from Dartmouth Medical School and completed her residency at Tufts New England Medical Center in Boston. She was also an assistant clinical professor of OB/GYN at Maine Medical Center for 20 years.

Dr. Northrup knows that the key to vibrant health on all levels is within us—our inner wisdom. She says, “When we find the connection between our thoughts, beliefs, physical health, and life circumstances, we find that we are in the driver’s seat of our lives and can make profound changes. Nothing is more exhilarating or empowering.”

Dr. Northrup’s work has been featured on Super Soul Sunday on OWN, The Oprah Winfrey Show, the Today ShowNBC Nightly NewsThe ViewRachael RayGood Morning America20/20, and The Dr. Oz Show.  Women clearly trust Dr. Northrup’s approach. In 2013, Reader’s Digest named her one of “The 100 Most Trusted People in America.” And, in 2016, she was named one of Oprah Winfrey’s Super Soul 100, a group of leaders who are using their voices and talent to awaken humanity.

Dr. Northrup has spent her life as an advocate for women’s health and wellness, first as a practicing OB/GYN physician for 25 years and now as an internationally respected writer and speaker. Her books have been translated into 24 languages.

A multiple New York Times best-selling author, Dr. Northup’s most recent book, Dodging Energy Vampires: An Empath’s Guide To Evading Relationships That Drain You And Restoring Your Health And Power (Hay House, April 2018) was an immediate success. In it Dr. Northrup sheds light on the real reason so many people suffer from seemingly inexplicable health conditions. Based on her professional and person experiences, Dr. Northrup provides strategies for removing narcissists and other cluster b-types from your life, and how you can recover your health after a relationship with an energy vampire.

Dr. Northrup put her own personal truth on paper in 1994, with the first edition of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom (Bantam, 1994). This groundbreaking classic quickly became a New York Times bestseller, and has been the veritable bible of women’s health for nearly two decades. With its raw facts and intriguing case histories, Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom explains exactly how to “create physical and emotional health and healing.”

Her second book, The Wisdom of Menopause (Bantam, 2001, 2006, 2012), has been embraced by women everywhere, including Oprah Winfrey, who sought Dr. Northrup’s wisdom when she turned 50 and faced “The Big M.” In this New York Times bestseller, Dr. Northrup once again challenged convention with inspiring insights—the “change” is not a collection of symptoms to be fixed, but a mind/body revolution, which brings tremendous opportunity for happiness.

Mother-Daughter Wisdom, Dr. Northrup’s third book (Bantam, 2005), was voted Amazon’s #1 book of the year in both parenting and mind/body health, and was also nominated for a Quill Award.

In The Secret Pleasures of Menopause (Hay House, 2008) and The Secret Pleasures of Menopause Playbook (Hay House, 2009), Dr. Northrup outlines the crucial link between health and pleasure.

Beautiful Girl, (Hay House, 2013) Dr. Northrup’s children’s book, brings her positive message to the youngest of girls.

In Goddesses Never Age: The Secret Prescription for Radiance, Vitality and Wellbeing (Hay House, February 2015), which quickly became a New York Times bestseller, Dr. Northrup inspires women (and men) with an entirely different mindset about what it means to grow older.

In her book, Making Life Easy: A Simple Guide to A Divinely Inspired Life (Hay House, 2016) Dr. Northrup shares the essential truth that has guided her since medical school, and advises her readers how to make their lives truly easy.

Dr. Northrup has also hosted eight highly successful public-television specials, beginning in 1998. Her latest was based on her book, Goddesses Never Age, and first aired nationwide in February 2015.

Dr. Northrup also founded Amata Life, a company that manufactures and distributes a product line featuring the Pueraria mirifica plant, a traditional medicine used by Thai women for 700 years. These health and beauty products help alleviate the symptoms of menopause, so women can truly thrive in the wisdom of this uniquely female life stage.

As a business owner, physician, former surgeon, mother, writer, and speaker, Dr. Northrup acknowledges our individual and collective capacity for growth, freedom, joy, and balance. When she’s not traveling and teaching, Dr. Northrup loves devoting her leisure time to dancing Argentine Tango, playing the harp, going to the movies, staying fit, getting together with her daughters and friends, boating, and reading.

July 5, 2018
00:0000:00

“I think that people are really having trouble grappling with the idea that fit comes in many forms and that people can still participate in athletics no matter what kind of body they have,” she says. “I want to continue sticking my big ass into places where people think I don’t belong. That has been the nature of my life—I’m going to do it and I’m going to do it proudly.” - Mirna Valerio

Mirna Valerio came to my house and we had a great time!  Also known as "The Mirnavator," she is a plus-size ultra-runner who has shaken things up in the running and ultra world with her body-positivity and activism for fitness at whatever place you are.

65: Lizzie Velasquez: Dare to Be Kind

March 13, 2018
00:0000:00

Lizzie Velasquez was cruelly dubbed "The Ugliest Woman in the World" on a viral YouTube video over ten years ago. She was born with an extremely rare congenital disease called Marfanoid–progeroid–lipodystrophy syndrome that, among other symptoms, prevents her from accumulating body fat and gaining weight.

Out of that horrific YouTube incident, rose a fire and a desire in Lizzie to use her talents to become successful, motivate others and show what it means to be kind. Her 2013 inspiring TedX talk, "How Do You Define Yourself" has over 4 million views. Her documentary, A Brave Heart, is a must-watch for everyone -especially those with tweens and teenagers. Her paperback book, Dare to Be Kind, is out now.  

Enjoy the episode with Lizzie.

53: Randy Spelling: Unlimiting You: Step Out of Your Past and into Your Purpose

December 17, 2017
00:0000:00

Randy Spelling grew up in the entertainment industry as the son of, Aaron Spelling, one of the most prolific Hollywood producers in history. Up until his mid twenties, Randy acted in various hit primetime television shows such as Beverly Hills 90210, Malibu Shores, and Charmed. He starred in a daytime soap opera for four years called Sunset Beach and was featured in several feature films.This contributed to Randy earning a dedicated global following.In 2006, amidst a struggle with addiction and feeling lost, Randy went through a process of getting sober that led him to go within and find his purpose. Success and notoriety had not brought the deeper satisfaction Randy was desperately seeking.

With near-fatal outcomes, he made a choice to do the hard work of getting clean and started on a serious spiritual quest to find meaning in his life. While on the journey, he reconnected with his latent intuitive talents as well as his ability to listen deeply to the hearts of others, both of which turned out to be an excellent fit for the career of life coaching. Randy entered a two-year, credentialed coaching program to become an International Coaching Federation Certified Life Coach. Randy is a life coach, spiritual facilitator, author, and speaker, with his own life coaching and wellness company, Being in Flow. He provides one-on- one coaching with an emphasis on helping clients discover how to improve their lives and live free of limitations. Randy frequently holds workshops and face-to-face consultations in his hometown, Los Angeles, and other cities across the country. Randy's workshops, group coaching sessions, tele-seminars, and public speaking engagements fuel his passion for helping others. Whether it is with individuals, couples, families, or groups, Randy makes spiritual and universal truths simple, presenting them in grounded ways that can be used in everyday life. Randy lives in Portland, OR, with his wife and two young daughters.
