    Mindfulness tips to combat holiday stress
    The importance of remaining consistent with  holiday choices

    With holiday parties starting to be in full swing, many people are staying busy and eating on the go, or overindulging in sweet party treats.  And then there’s grandma’s sweet potato casserole or the family’s favorite gravy.  The holidays are filled with memories, but there are other things that fill those spaces.  The average person gains 5-10 pounds over the holiday season. But it doesn’t have to be that way…

    What gut microbes have to do with anxiety
    What the direct evidence is these gut microbes affect the brain
    How we can affect the gut microbiome and the immune system

    The gut and brain have a steady ability to communicate via the nervous system, hormones, and the immune system. Some of the microbiome can release neurotransmitters, just like our own neurons do, speaking to the brain in its own language via the vagus nerve.

    Join Dr. Ritamarie as she discusses that the gut is a terrific place to start helping you be as healthy, resilient, and robust as you have evolved to be.

    Radio Show: An Interview with Donna Gates: Gene Smart Diet [Encore Presentation]

    in Health

    In this show you’ll learn:

    The impact of your genes on your gut flora
    Why the one-size-fits-all diet doesn’t work, and how to customize yours based on your genetics
    The alphabet soup of genes that impact digestion and food effects – NERF-2, FUT, VDR, NAT, TAS1r3, MTHFR, and much more

    When it comes to choosing what to eat, the literature is fraught with confusing research, statistics, and recommendations.  Proponents of a variety of diet “religions” purport to have the perfect diet for all of human kind.  Studies contradict themselves, and hot-under-the-collar debates separate diet factions. Confusion and overwhelm abounds, and, for many, it results in just giving up and eating what tastes good.

    But what if instead of following a particular diet religion, you could, based on factors in your genetics, make smart food choices based on what’s best for your unique biochemistry?

    Join Dr. Ritamarie and Donna Gates, of The Body Ecology Diet, as they help you understand about genetics with relationship to food choices.  This is what a brand new science called nutrigenomics is all about.

    in Health

    What are ‘probiotic’ bacteria
    Are the same bacteria good for everyone
    What are some examples of bacteria that are particularly helpful for certain people


    For most people, the mention of probiotics conjures up images of yogurt. But don’t dismiss the microbes as a marketing gimmick or food fad. The latest probiotic research suggests that live-active cultures of these friendly bacteria can help to prevent and treat a wide variety of ailments.

    Join Dr. Ritamarie and Steph Jackson as they discuss what bacteria are right for you and the best ways for you to use them.

    If you are ready to go deep with your digestive health and you need more than slippery elm, you will enjoy working with Steph Jackson. Steph loves customizing balancing programs for the microbiome, working with fermented foods and looking at how the body systems work together.

    Trust Yourself Again & Go After Your Dreams with Duda Jadrijevic, 3 steps that are crucial to digging out the Self-Belief you've lost. Learn how to stop your limiting and negative thoughts that occupy your mind and focus on what you are here for, what makes you happy and therefore successful in work, love, friendships and family.

    The Empowered Self Series with Co-host Dr. Friedemann Schaub - How to Stay Calm and Centered in a World of Terror.  The recent acts of terror in Turkey, Egypt, Lebanon and France have left many of us in shock and disbelief. Considering, that these are only a few of the most recent terrorist attacks, we wonder if they world is no longer safe. Some react with anger and the call to force and retaliation. Others with grief and a sense of hopelessness. But the majority of people feel more anxious and afraid. Vacation plans get cancelled, since traveling abroad seems too risky. People of different faith and culture are eyed with great suspicion. And some even call to shun the hundreds of thousands of desperate refugees that are fleeing from the terrorists themselves.

    Of course it is understandable that fears and worries are running rampant these days. But isn’t this precisely the agenda of the terrorists – to make us feel small, powerless and unsafe? And isn’t the best way for us to defy those, who seem to have no regard for life, peace and freedom, to stay calm, centered and not let anxiety and panic dictate our lives.
