    power of perception coaching with Beau Chatham

    in Spirituality

    My name is Beau Chatham and I am a Master Coach with The Burris Institute.I am also the CEO & Tribal Leader of Warrior Life Coach, an Atlanta, GA-based executive coaching practice, where I work with business professionals, athletes, and combat veterans.A little bit about my background – I was a commissioned Infantry officer in the United States Army.  I am Airborne Ranger qualified, saw ground combat in Grenada during Operation Urgent Fury, and served in numerous other command and training positions.I left military service after 10 years and found myself in the world of biotech and pharmaceutical commercialization, where I marketed injection and oral drug therapies. I also served as a corporate trainer, where I conducted and coordinated medical education programs for sales representative, focusing in the areas of anatomy, physiology, and disease state management.  My areas of teaching were in cardiovascular and neurological disorders.  It was here, that I was first introduced to the concept of Evidence-Based therapies and how important they are in gaining measurable outcomes.   This is what ultimately led me to finding The Burris Institute methods of coaching. remember following the country’s combat actions of post 9-11, not from the newspaper or the talking heads on the TV, but rather through medical journals.  Of particular note, I recall the longitudinal studies of Dr Charles Hoge published October of 2004, in the New England Journal of Medicine that addressed the growing mental health burden being produced from extended combat operations.As a warrior and medical educator, I knew that I wanted to help our returning combat veterans, so I started looking in to life skills coaching.  The problem was that so many of the life coaching schools insisted that coaching was for “healthy” people and that the emotional states of fear, guilt, and anger were best suited for psychiatry.

    GMOs and toxins used on our food is killing us

    in Health

    GMOs are a product of genetic engineering, meaning their genetic makeup has been altered to induce a variety of “unique” traits to crops, such as making them drought-resistant or giving them “more nutrients.” GMO proponents claim that genetic engineering is “safe and beneficial,” and that it advances the agricultural industry. They also say that GMOs help ensure the global food supply and sustainability. But is there any truth to these claims? Public opinion around the biotech industry's contamination of our food supply and destruction of our environment has reached the tipping point, demanding GMO labeling.  The EPA ‘estimates that 10,000-20,000 physician-diagnosed pesticide poisonings occur each year among the approximately 2 million US agricultural workers. Tune in for the rest of the story Wednesday at 7PM est on Aging Younger Radio right here on Blogtalkradio.

    Let's Coach with Mark & Carolyn - Autism

    in Lifestyle

    Let’s Coach with Mark and Carolyn, Wednesday, April 22, 2015, Noon EST


    Beating Autism


    Imagine your child has been diagnosed with autism.  Where can you turn?  What options are available?  Anne Evans was faced with just that challenge.  She looked underneath her child's symptoms of autism to find the root causes and found treatments that worked and allowed her to completely cure her child from the inside out.  She found a little-known therapy related to traditional Chinese medicine that worked wonders. It is called NAET or Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Technique.  Much more than just an allergy therapy, it is an entirely new way to practice medicine. It is rapidly becoming the medicine of the 21st century. Her book, "Beating Autism," is due out on newsstands on June 15th


    Anne M. Evans received her undergraduate degree in microbiology from the University of Texas at Austin in 1986 and her graduate degree in Biomedical Communications from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas in 1989. She was publications and marketing director for two global biotech firms. Her publications include Cruofixation, Cryolabeling, and Cryotransfer, and Immunogold Labeling. She collaborated on the Pediatric Handbook for University of Texas Systems Medical Schools.


    Join us as Anne shares her child's story of recovery, and the therapy that made it all possible.

    New Business Paradigms — April 9, 2015

    in Business

    April's show focuses on the situation in California—the country's most prosperous state—which is currently in the grips of an epic drought. The struggle over water rights in California is almost as old as the state itself but this unprecedented drought is creating new pressures that will ultimately define the future of California. This scenario is a case study for the new era of climate change-related crises, adaptations, and ultimately our survival.


    In our business analysis segment, we discuss Shell's risky gamble to buy BG Group. Hear Rinaldo's take on this deal—he calls it "dinosaurs mating." He also talks about the outlook for the 3D Printing sector why the pioneers in emerging industries are not always the biggest winners.


    Our Economic Doomsday Clock ticks one minute closer to midnight, arriving at 11:51PM. A likely Greek Exit from the euro combined with bank exposure to the chaos, especially in Europe, makes international destabilization more likely than last month.
