Podchaser - Dr. E’s Highway to Health Show: Living Ageless

Episode 71

Loving yourself first is much harder to do than you’d expect. Why? Because we’ve been conditioned, since early childhood to put others first. We’ve been raised in environments where it’s not usually easy to acknowledge and talk about our feelings and so we end up burying them inside and self-loathing ourselves.

In this episode, world-renowned teacher and speaker Blake D Bauer joins me to share about the importance of self-love and –most importantly– how to start practicing it.

Episode 70

All in all, we are at a time of social unrest. People are confused, scared, angry, and very susceptible… There is a clear lack of leadership and truth. But most importantly, of love. Love for one another and love for ourselves.And that’s exactly what I discussed  back in September with Udo Erasmus and why I’m revisiting it now.

Episode 65

What we eat is, by far, the main cause of our chronic disorders. And it’s important to understand that we’re all different… which means that even “healthy” foods can wreak havoc in many of us. This is what a food sensitivity is.

And while most people are familiar with allergies, that cause swelling and difficulty breathing, you are likely unaware of the food sensitivities that may be behind your bloating, your migraines, stuffy nose, or achy joints…

What really matters to you? Are you living life the way you want to? Are you spending your time doing the things that matter to you?
