071 Change your mind and your health | Sharon Falchuk

It was good to have an answer but as a lot of people will know having an answer isn’t everything because then that’s when “oh now what do I do next” happens
— Sharon Falchuk -

Imagine your treatment plan is not working and your Doctor says "we're in real trouble now". Adding to the feeling of hopelessness you are told that it's likely you've passed on a chronic illness to your child.

Sharon Falchuk does not know how she drove herself home after this distressing conversation. When wasting away in bed and she had hit rock bottom, her tipping point was being open to possibility.

060 Is your pilot light always on | Dr David James

Rather than have an on off switch if you would with stress and anxiety…they’re much more like a pilot light on a hot water heater, they’re just constantly going and people are constantly in a state of low grade anxiety
— Dr David James -

Given how prevalent stress and anxiety is today, I was curious about how anxiety could be treated with hypnotherapy in a lasting way. I had the opportunity to speak with Dr David James, licensed therapist, author and speaker who has a passion to see his clients make amazing life changes. David has real life experience of stress having been a police officer in Los Angeles so his perspective on how we can transform our relationship to stress is beyond purely an academic one.
