The Chess Grandmasters Extreme Workout
"I. How did you get on the chess? Beat in the first place? So I get really interested in these really need sports that. People are super invested in Ashwari. Kumar is an international features writer for Espn Lake if you're going to which. Of People Are Watching these chess tournaments that you wouldn't even know where that's happening in. Iceland. Or Finland, and so I had this curiosity so I was thinking so Bobby Fisher was such a huge part of chests in the US what Ron Labor is tennis. What Jack Nicklaus's to golf? That's what Bobby Fischer is to chess. Bobby Fisher of the United States will finally meet Boris Spassky of the Soviet Union in Belgrade Yugoslavia, but the chess championship of the world plus a purse of one, hundred, thirty, eight, thousand five hundred dollars, the richest prize for a head-to-head confrontation in any sport, but boxing. So who is the next Bobby Fisher? So I went to Saint Louis last year to sort of figure out what is going on in the chess world, so saint Louis has sort of become this chess capital of the country. Let's start with the basics here. What is a chess grandmaster? And what does it take to become one? Usually what happens? Is this International Chess Federation F. And they have this point systems so chessplayers. Lead different tournaments in accumulate these spines that. Gets them to a certain level of expertise, and they are then title the grandmaster, which is in fact, the highest I do that. A chess player can be awarded by International Chess Federation usually these. Players between the age of ten and fourteen, and so they go through these rigorous tournaments one after the other parents take them all over the world. And the get the title by around thirteen fourteen, and then they start to perfect the art of being perfect, just player. So you mentioned Bobby Fisher. Who is probably the most famous chess player all time? Actually is definitely the most famous chess player of all time. Who are the stars of the field today? The poster by of chess is at the moment Magnus Carlsen. Calzon is the best in the world. The youngest number one ever and no one can explain to you how he does what he does. It seems to come from another world, which is why he's become known as the Mozart of chess. He's from Norway. He sort of had this. Has this bad boy live to him? He's like interesting. He'll drop these nuggets about other players. You make jokes about his opponents. He talks trash social chicken. How do you not? He's GonNa do the same. Yeah the lack of comas is astounding. And quite disappointing. He talks acts. Yeah for sure sorta like that kind of Worcester wise. He's called the golden boy of chess. And then this. Is. Bobby Ana crew art, there's this Chinese grandmaster Ding Laren and then USA's Wesley so and Kara Nakimora. Really Good Armenia has live on Romanian so these are some of like the famous players at the moment that go up against each other all the time. So I the grandmaster that you decided to focus on with your story, the one who lives in Saint Louis is actually Italian. His name is Fabiano Caruana. Who is in? How did he get here? Fabiano Caruana is the number two seed in the world. He's an Italian American chess grandmaster. He became a grandmaster at fourteen years of age, fourteen years, eleven, months, and twenty eight to be exact, and he at that time was the youngest grandmaster in the history of Italy in the United States. E was sort of beg to be the next big thing in in US chess and he came back now. He has an apartment in Saint Louis. He lives there and he sort of boot. BOOT his life from scratch, and he was never like the big personality like Norris Magnus columnist. He's the guy that will is very chill loves video games and let us work to the talk to his justice stories about that call in the next Bobby Fisher like the next big thing. He's the one person that can actually dig down. Magnus, Carlsen in the world championship and become the next world champion. So what does? Chess match in a grand masters tournament. Actually look like. How does it play out? Okay so two grandmasters shake each other's hands. sit down across from each other is chessboard. This o'clock next to them that the are constantly looking at. This goes on for at least six hours right every day, and so during these six hours, the brain has to have most oxygen supply. Which means your heart is functioning three times faster than on any given. And because of that sustained higher blood pressure, and sustained higher level of activity by the heart and the rain, the body goes through intense physical. Energy lost during. A chess game that lasts six to seven to sometimes eat hours said.

And said truly this was the son of God. Like that was the conclusion. Of the Centurion and those who were with him. Who just witnessed?

Kerry Washington on Hollywood's Diversity Problem
"The entertainment industry begins the slow process of returning to work. Will there be as Carrie? Washington says a real shift in institutional practices can there be a different and more diverse Hollywood. We know because of the coronavirus. There will be changes in how people do their work. But. What about the work itself? How far will the industry reset? Actually go? This is Hollywood the sequel. Welcome to our new podcast from La Studios. Each week were sitting down with some of the sharpest minds in the entertainment business to talk about where Hollywood might be headed as it returns to work. We'll get into the external changes for production marketing distribution, and with the movie theater business in tatters. What even defines ahead? We'll also explore the biggest question of all. Will there be systemic change that finally corrects the inequalities that may have been acknowledged, but hardly repaired. And that's where we'll begin this first episode with actor and producer. Kerry Washington. You know her from the TV series scandal. We spoke initially in mid-may, and we'll share that conversation in a bit, but after the killings of George Floyd Brianna, Taylor Ahmad Arboretum and the protests against police, brutality and systemic racism that followed we wanted to get carries thoughts on how this moment might affect the entertainment industry and America itself. I think one of the things that is challenging to. METABOLIZE is that. Not, that much has changed for black people in the last couple of weeks. But there's a different response to it. And so I think. The sentiments of the moment that feel revelatory. I don't feel like those feelings belong to me this. This is not a moment of revelation, but I'm watching the revelation. Unfold around me for people. And I'm grateful that that as a not even as a country, but that the world is showing up for black lives. In a different way. But this is what what has been the reality, this level of danger and anger and fear and. Maybe trauma lack of safety like these have been the realities for black Americans since there were black Americans. There are fundamental differences between a moment and a turning point and I'm wondering optimistically even. Is there a way that real change not only in the country, but also in the business that you work in. Can come out of this. I think so. I think I can hope so. You know I mean we're not. None of us have a crystal ball. It'll be the historians that tell us years from now whether this was a flash point a turning point. But I? I it feels it certainly feels for me like something is different, and like we have to be willing to look at ourselves. Regardless of what industry were in. Do you hope comes out of it? What are you hope changes I? Mean what what would you say would mark progress or change? I think a more radical acceptance of Anti Racist, society policies and culture because I think what people are realizing is that it's not enough to just not be racist that because our institutions. Were built. In the fabric of racism because our country was born, you know with. Black Americans being designated a fraction of human being like it's. It's not enough to just not be racist. We have to be actively anti-racist. and for that desire to come from. A deep. Understanding that we all deserve full rights of humanity. Yes all lives matter, but accepting that to be an anti-racist society. We have to affirm that black lives matter. I think that's I. think that's where we're at I think people are finally kind of. That and our institutions need to understand that not just. Interpersonal relationships, it's important that we're having those conversations that our dinner tables in in our classrooms, but also at the highest levels in our systems of government in our systems that are supposedly built for public safety. We have to ask ourselves. Who Do we deem the public? And who do we deem the enemy? so. I, I'm hoping that I'm hoping that that this all of this new. revelatory reflection lends itself to transformation, not just the hearts and minds, but also institutional practices, and those institutions can include you know arts organizations like the theater industry. Because there's this letter Hashtag, we see you which calls out racism in the theater. It signed by people like Sterling K.. Brown is Array Lin Manuel Miranda I. Think you shared it on twitter. What comes out of that and the best possible outcome to me. It seems really obvious like. We look at ourselves to get better and do better. That's the that's the practice of self. Reflection is to ask ourselves how we can do better so I mean even the language of inclusivity and diversity right like when we say that we're committed to diversity its diverse from what we're still centering whiteness as the most important thing and allowing or inviting diversity around that or when we talk about inclusivity. They're still an in out, so we're still centering certain kinds of people and you know maybe in tiny fractions allowing admitting other people to the table, so there's just so much of it that needs to be reexamined and and look at
Father of 19-year-old killed in CHOP says he got condolence call from President Trump, but not Seattle's mayor
"The day he buried his nineteen year old son, who was gunned down in Seattle's lawless chop zone horace Lorenzo Anderson Senior got a phone call from president trump who had been moved by his heart, wrenching appearance the night before on Fox News Channel's Hannity Anderson Son Horse. Lorenzo Anderson Junior was killed in the early hours of June twentieth when shots rang out near the border of the six block. Block zone. The city had been given up for three chaotic weeks in the emotional interview with Sean. Hannity a tearful Anderson said he hadn't been able to get answers from the city about his son's death, and he disclosed that he hadn't even been contacted by mayor. Jenny Durken but the mayor a Democrat did reach out to Anderson later. Wednesday in call from trump followed after that the only way. Way I found out was just two of his friends, just two friends that just happened to be there. They came and told me he said they weren't even from Seattle. Now mind you I haven't heard from the police department. They never came compounding. The father's grief were reports that first responders who came to the shop zone to transport the shooting victims to the hospital encountered an angry mob that. That denied them entry. The pair were taken to harborview medical center by self-described trump medics and Anderson. Son was pronounced dead on arrival. My son needed help I don't feel like they helped my son. Anderson said I feel like he doesn't without this. He would just be nobody he's just doesn't matter. He's just another guy. Just another child just swept under the rug, and that's IT and forgotten about.

For my like my personal, whenever I'm trying to come up with my favorite of anything of all time, just like my own little sort of a personal. I limit myself to only things that were released at least five years ago. That way I have some hindsight that I can sort of. You know you're absolutely right. There's recency biases in play for sure and the. Okay, we you. You say Yo exclude things from five years ago. No. It's no. It has to be at least five years old. Probably reflects on your in order for it. For me to consider it one of the best of whatever of all time, yeah, for example I have a playlist that I keep updated of my favorite songs of all time. They're called God tears songs, but I won't allow any song. That's less than five years old on that playlist. Okay I think that makes sense. I think the Oscars actually showed work that way.

So I, initially before I came, a medical hobbyist is studied. SA- Baton Medicine. And I've always been. Really drawn to SA- baton. Buddhism and I've been a battery on a practitioner for. Gosh I think it's getting on the thirty years and so. When I had the opportunity to study to baton medicine I felt really codes to do that I'd already started. autohrity actually studied as a spiritual healer years the force I think I've always had kind of. pull to woods. The healing modality sees, and I've also say. Grown up, I'd like to say. I've grown up with my hands in the soil, but I've always grown hobbs, I've always been out in the countryside connecting with plants, so I had really strong. Connection with plants as well as the connection with the tha baton side of things so I, had the opportunity to be one of. Only a few people studying Tibetan medicine in Scotland. Between Nineteen, ninety, four and nineteen, ninety eight, and it was a really unique opportunity because this incredible. Amazing Master of Tibetan medicine called Campo. Truro Sanam was going to travel to Scotland four two months a year for four years in order to teach these western students, and literally I'm talking about. Maybe there were twelve of US something like And I just. knew the I needed to be part of that and. I requested the I could join the course. And I was told No. And have to say.

Please, let me join this coast I will study to be a medical harvest at the same time afterwards, but I just feel so strongly that I would really need to do it. And, he and he said to me a K.. If you commit to studying Western hobble medicine after the course you can do it, but also what I would really like you to do is stop clinic which combines western herbal medicine and Tibetan medicine, so that is how. I ended up. Having studied western herbal medicine after the course for five or six years.

A song that you associate with a specific time in your life, a song that is ripe for partying and gatherings Of course during summers, where such things are allowed and you know but anyway I. Love It. Let's get into it. Let's on this summer I some finer points on. Al Billboard actually compiles its annual song. The Chart the charts which you can actually find on billboard right now is a running tally that tracks the most popular songs based on cumulative performance on the weekly billboard, hot, one hundred chart, and that's from memorial. Day through Labor Day here in the United States and this year those charts encompass the charts dated June sixth through September fifth, and at the end of the. The season, the top song of the summer, basically is the top song in terms of overall performance on the weekly, hot one hundred during that span of time, and will reveal that shortly after Labor Day, right now to babies, rockstar featuring roddy rich is number one on the twenty twenty song of the summer chart while in the mix in the top ten or songs like Megan, these million savage between beyond say and the weekends blinding lights. Yes, so we'll get to this year, and and how this is a more competitive year than than some years past including last year. But now that we know how we would determine the song of the summer for the year. Let's go back in time Keith. And revisit what the number one song! The summer was for each year from two thousand nine through twenty nineteen. I WANNA. Point out that we actually have a song of the summer determined for every year. The hot one hundred has existed all the way back to nineteen fifty eight, so if you want to check out every number one. For, each summer, every song of the summer back from Nineteen fifty eight to twenty, nine, hundred nine. You can do that on Dover Dot Com. Just do a Google search for summer songs, nineteen, thousand, nine, hundred nineteen. It'll pop right up. You'll be good to go tested at actually works. That's. It's better than saying. GO TO BILL DOT COM slash chart dash beat slash one five dash two three. You know it easier. It's easier to do it this way. Well I up. We've got two thousand nine song of the summer. It's the black-eyed peas I. got a feeling. Let's take a listen to a little bit of it now. That tonight it's GonNa, be. Good I. In. The summer of two thousand nine belonged to the PS. They actually have the numbers, one and two biggest songs of the summer that year as boom boom POW was number two. The two tracks were so huge in two thousand nine that I got a feeling spent fourteen weeks at number one on the hot one hundred and actually replaced boom boom POW at number one, which itself had spent twelve straight weeks atop the list so. So from the April Eighteenth, two thousand nineteen chart through October, tenth two, thousand, nineteen, hot, one hundred chart, the PS were number one every single week with either boom boom, POW, or I got a feeling which is pretty insane.
Should You Beware of Glucose Syrup?
"Hello and welcome to the nutrition diva podcast I'm your host Monica Reina. A listener recently asked me to look into an ingredient called glucose syrup. This is often used as a sweetener in processed foods, such as cookies, candy and other confections, and she'd read that it's a very concentrated source of sugar that supposedly contains four times the amount of sugar and calories per tablespoon as regular table sugar, the implication of course that one should avoid foods made with glucose syrup. I tracked this specific claim to an article written by a Dietitian for website called health line now this is a site that I consider to be a very reliable source in general I have found their nutrition articles to be thorough, accurate and very well referenced and sure enough. That statement that Glucose Syrup contains four times. The sugar and calories found in regular sugar, was footnoted and linked to the USDA's food and nutrient database the gold standard for nutrient data. One footnote linked to the nutritional analysis for light. Corn, Syrup, which is another name for Glucose Syrup. One tablespoon contains seventeen grams of sugar and sixty two calories. The other footnote linked to the nutritional analysis for regular table sugar one tablespoon contains four grams of sugar and sixteen calories. Case closed. Actually make that case overturned on appeal. Because unfortunately, this second listing was inaccurate. You see in addition to the tens of thousands of foods that have been analyzed by the USDA to create their amazing food nutrient database, they also include as a public service nutrient information for tens of thousands of additional packaged and processed foods, and they base that on information that's been provided by the manufacturer, and there are frequent errors. In fact, there's a disclaimer right on the page that health line cited stating that the info was provided by food brand owners who are responsible for the descriptions, nutrient data and the ingredient information. Well. In this case, it was just a simple typo. The manufacturer chose the wrong serving size the nutrient info that they uploaded four grams of sugar and sixteen calories. For a teaspoon of sugar, not a tablespoon, and for those of you who don't bake or maybe used metric measures. A tablespoon contains three teaspoons. So a tablespoon of Corn Syrup does not contain four times as many calories as a tablespoon of sugar, it is actually about a third higher. It contains seventeen grams of sugar versus twelve grams, and this is simply due to the fact that sugar crystals aren't as dense as sugar syrup. Something that manufacturers adjust for in their recipes. Look if you're concerned about the sugar or the calorie content of packaged food, it doesn't really matter how many tablespoons of an ingredient were added to the recipe. What matters is how many grams of sugar end up in each serving of the finished product something that's disclosed usually accurately on the nutrition facts label look mistakes happen and I sent an email to the Dietitian who wrote the article, alerting her to the error, and I hope that she and health line will be able to correct it. But. Here's a quick tip for anyone who's using the USDA's database to look up nutrient info. You can filter those listings so that they don't show the manufacturer provided listings. The USDA data is perfect, but it's generally much more complete and more reliable than the manufacturer supplied data. But I still have one other problem with this article on corn or Glucose Syrup because the author goes on to write that quote Consuming Glucose Syrup regularly may increase your risk of obesity, high blood, sugar, poor, dental, health, high blood, pressure, and Heart, disease, and quote, and once again she includes citations this time. She's linking to articles published in medical journals. But these articles are not about corn syrup per se they refer to all added sugars,
How Does Stress Trigger Physiological Conditions?
"Hey guys welcome to not another anxiety show I'm your host Kelly Walker and joining me today as my co-host Erica late them. My, Darling. Good sweating just existing. It went from the dead of winter in a like distortion. What was that show that I never watch game of thrones like the white walkers are coming to the Sahara chocolates too Humid Sahara. If the Amazon. My hair is huge right now I've got some curly hair, so my friend was like. Why is your hair so curly? Did you check the humidity? It's like a thousand percent. That's what. Science! Science it can become a thousand I am drinking the air so. In such rated we'll. However you tell me everything. All besides that, you know just. Just hitting up the Instagram, where I saw an interesting, a really great question. Right like we have a great question. We got a great questions, but this one was. And I will read it to you any second now, but this one was something that we both went. Okay okay, we can talk about this like it's even beyond. Anxiety bites because it's sort of getting back to the basics of song. Yes, so. and. I think there's like you know I WANNA make sure. We sort of answering a no read it in a second here but I wanNA. Make sure we sort of answer the question, but there's a little more to it underneath the surface that I, also WanNa touch on, which is why it's not just like a simple anxiety bites because it was like sort of an evocative question for us and I definitely thought it was worth probably something we've touched on here and there, but never like dedicated an entire episode to so Yeah I think it's. It's definitely worth taking some time. Okay Ready. I understand that things like heart palpitations may lead one to think that they have a heart condition, which is not actually present. I'd like you to do a segment about how stress can trigger actual physiological conditions. Love. This thing I mean you remember this coaching? air-cooled heart palpitations, but I was like yeah, okay, thanks a lot for the vice. Mine's real. And, it's no less real, but. Yes. Yep Yep and so I WanNa make sure I answer this listeners question about stress, and how it, how it impacts our bodies, so I'll take a second to sorta like dive into a biology lesson, which is my favorite thing. Ever sorry Erica bear with me. There's going to be I listen. I love. The biology I just don't understand sixty two percent of it. To Hey. That's passing right on. Oh. Yes, that's passing. That's a New York it is. That's passing. So yeah, I do WANNA speak to to how stress can trigger actual physiological conditions I don't want to share them here, but she she sort of shared a few things that have arisen for her as the result of anxiety so. It is it is well researched documented that chronic stress is one factor keyword one factor of so many others that can contribute to the development or exasperation of physiological conditions. Right stress makes chronic pain worse. It makes gastric issues worse. It makes cardiovascular issues worse. It makes it really exacerbates everything because. Stress touches every single one of our system, so I mean it really does make sense since chronically elevated stress, hormones like cortisol disrupt so many of our body's metabolic functions, but let's hear Mon. that's the one I can remember cortisol. I. Bet you know more than you, thank. For years later. Okay so! I wish it was as simple. This a little more nuanced I wish it was a simple saying. Anxiety and stress caused sickness right, but. We've sort of touched on this or mentioned it in a few previous episodes Dr Kelly mcgonagall. She's a psychologist from Stanford and go watch Ted Talk She's. She's very. He has a Tedtalk But to like basically some up her ted talk on and her and her research She's focused on how. Our understanding, of. Stress. And how it affects the body so. Finding was that when we change our relationship distress, or whatever are currently ship is, we can change how stress affects our body. More, specifically yet right like it always feels like an end. She says this in her Ted Talk. She's like you know I came into practices as a psychologist demonizing stress, eliminate stress managed stress, control, stress, right, but so many of us in the anxiety. Psycho are well. Of how trying to control stress or anxiety goes tension rises, anxiety rises. It's not very effective and Her major finding was that when we change our relationship to stress, right, we change how stress affects our body more specifically when we relate to stress as a natural response that exists to prepare, motivate and protect us than we don't suffer the same negative health outcomes is someone who relates to trust to stress as something to be entirely. Avoid it when we relate to stress as the former, a completely different physiological response occurs different ratio of stress hormones in addition to protective hormones are released mitigating the effects of stress on our body.
"Now I'm a stay and blessings welcome. And it really is a pleasure to have you with us. Thank you for joining in. People listening often send me different bits and pieces through the weeks poems and quotes and a lot of cartoons I'm thinking that. The community is trying to serve my deepest needs. Especially these last weeks I'll just share one that came and basically said. So far twenty twenty s is like looking both ways before crossing the street. And then getting hit by an airplane. Another was a shopper saying. I've decided return twenty twenty. It just didn't meet my expectations. and. Then, of course, there's been countless steaks on the restrictions of confines of being at home, sheltering at home and one then just showed a dog on us psychiatrist's couch and the psychiatrist saying so, when did you start seeing an invisible fence? So thank you for whatever you send to me. I enjoy these the background theme of course of all of them is the intensity. The trauma, the anxiety, the uncertainty of these times. And then with that, of course, for so many of us this continuing inquiry, which is so central, which is really. How can our hearts hold it happen we respond to. What's going on for ourselves and for others in our world in a way that serves. So a part of looking at this are as a way of looking at this. I want to start with a story and IT'S A. Kind of A. Classical teaching meth that you find in many different traditions, and it's one that I've always really loved. And so might sit back and listen. In the clouds of the distant past there was a monastery that had fallen upon difficult times there were conflicts and power struggles between the monks. There was disrespect and tension between monks and the nuns. Due to a drought, the vegetable garden it started going down now there was no effort to revive it. the the monks and nuns. Just they just weren't taking care of each other. Are The their land mini? The monks were elderly. It was it was really a dying water. So very dispirited. The Abbot went to seek guidance from a well-known say a wise woman who practised and lived in solitude and the deep woods and nature. And he asked her what might save them. What might save the Monastery? And they meditated together, and she said well I. Don't have any advice to give you. But what I can say is that the body sought full lives amongst you. Now just to say about decide for awaken being being with an awakened heart in the Awaken Hearts Cody Cheetah so abode thoughtful for lives amongst you. So he returned and hold amongst the nuns that there was no solution, but just to let them all know what she had said that the body sought for is amongst us. And interestingly in the days and weeks that followed they started pondering this and their spirit started lifting with a kind of fresh hope the way they were relating to each other changed like. Wow, maybe you're the body saga, so they became more. Respectful and carrying and curious like. Maybe there's something I can learn from you, so they started treating each other differently, and on the chance that maybe they were each vote for they started being kinder and more respectful and more attentive to their own inner processes. And it extended to the world around them. Knowing that body sophists have many different types of incarnations. They actually started treating the wildlife. The animals the gardens land with increasing care. Well people that came by started noticing the changing atmosphere, and felt drawn to the radiance and the vibrancy that was emanating from the monastery, and more and more of them wanted to move in, and be part of it and join, and within a few years at the monastery, became again a very thriving order filled with service to the wider community and celebration and love. So that's the story, and then we ask ourselves. What happened? You know the sage. Had reminded them of something and. What she had really done, was reminded them of their own potential of the the laid the love, and the potential for awakening each of them, and that gave. New meaning gave hope. That then led to creating the community that expressed that light in love.
How to calm anxiety when stepping back into the world after lockdown
"This week we're talking about how to calm the anxiety. Many of us are facing and returning to work or stepping back into the world. After the lockdown, and while some are eager to get back to work in a sense of normalcy structure, many have enjoyed the quiet time including US and more time with family and. In sometimes, that's that's tough to leave behind. Anxiety about getting sick or bringing illness home to loved ones, all kinds of things are showing up and there's a lot to consider and to be cautious about now. We find that it's helpful to examine our personal concerns and then focus on supporting those as they come up. Before we dive in even deeper. Got Back from a weekend away with my family and it's the first time we've done anything. Since covid nineteen popped up. And we went to a very. Very safe place as far as the numbers are concerned a not very populated. We went up to the upper peninsula of Michigan. and. We were very careful. But we. Did more. Over the weekend than we have in several months as far as going out. And being in a hotel room and being at a restaurant, those kinds of things. In it was a lovely experience, but it was also. A bit exhausting an ongoing by the time. I was so happy to get home. We loved the trip was wonderful. But. That being sure to have my masks do I sanitize it. I wash my hands. I touch this. I don't WanNA use a public restroom. How am I gonNA work around that. WanNa go to my favorite restaurant. Our the handling things. It. Most of what we did was outside in nature, but There was quite a bit that wasn't and it was been unsettling. I was grateful to know how to care for myself and my family. During that time we were extra extra careful, and I'm hopeful that everything's just fine. But boy! Oh, boy, if you're feeling this. We know that you're alone because this is a lot. Whether it's returning to work in an office environment which my husband did. Some weeks ago. Or whether it's getting back out into the world like what I just explained. It's perfectly normal if it feels like a bit too much right now. Yeah. And so much has changed, and so much feels different me when I'm out and about I can feel frustration. Sometimes from others who just want things to be normal and and get back to normal, just have it will be as it was because it starting to fill a bit inconvenient bit high maintenance and then. Others sing to be very concerned or even scared, and my heart really goes out to them I was on my daughter a few evenings ago, we spotted heroin so some people stopping with their cameras to photograph, the Love Bird, and an elderly gentleman, stopped a distance away from my daughter, and he said everyone looking at, and she said Oh there's a heroin. then. She pointed to the bud, but. It was towards him, so she pointed towards him a bit, and he startled and step back. and. She was fair distance from him. She wasn't too close, but she felt awful. Oh sure. She said I started that gentleman. I think he thought I was a bit to blow some, so we were just walking in and talking and saying this is really unusual. Way, you know you're out taking a walk, and you just go to point a burden. Somebody feels something's it because they're very wary about this awful illness and the potential. Impact of that on their life, so it's not like we're all in exactly the same boat. Some are feeling very anxious about illness and bringing on US home to their family. Understandably some feeling frustrated. They Wanna get back to normal. For. Some home isn't the happiest place on Earth, and they need to get back to work and be with Elvis. Some need structure and some more introvert. Just WanNa stay home.
Healing Hypnosis with Erika Flint
"L. Everyone welcome to the addictive by PODCAST. My guest today is Erica Flint Erica. You want to introduce yourself. Yeah, sure so I spent. Fifteen years in high tech as a software engineer, and went through some really low period in my life, and ended up wanting more, and so I became a hypnotist, and now I am get to help people retrain and reprogram the most powerful computing device in the world, which is the human mind, and so I love helping people with all sorts of issues I love to help people lose weight. Stop Drinking. Stop smoking a sleep better. Better and I hope a lot of entrepreneurs get out of their own ways that they could be successful and I'm also a bestselling author, and I love helping people my latest, but can you be a hypnotist? Is All about taking people who've been through challenges in their own life, and then they want to become a hypnotist themselves and turn around and help other people, so that's the other part of what I do is I help? And people with big hearts that went to be of service in the world I helped them become hypnotists and help other people in the world. The world better place awesome. That's the whole reason. I wanted. You know podcast because I'm really curious about hypnotism. I've heard of it I have clients that asked me about a hey. Have you tried this on like well? I don't I don't know so I was excited to have you on, so you could explain it and talk about it, and we could discuss it in more detail. Yeah, and a lot of people have questions. Questions about hypnosis, because for most people you know, their experience with Enosis is oh, they saw something on America's talent, or they went to the fair, and they stop. They saw stage hypnotists or their high school graduation. They had a hypnotist, and so that's people's primary experience with stage hypnosis, and so I love telling people. How do we take what you might see on a stage hypnosis show? How do we turn that into something extremely useful in your everyday life once we make it into the hypnosis office, so just let me know questions you have about it. Great because that's that's been my experience is. Going to the fair and seeing the guy on stage. Who makes people do crazy things or do a crazy dance or I? Don't know, stand on their head. All sorts of crazy stuff and the krog goes wild and everything like that, so that's been my experience of hypnosis, but you're talking about something a little bit different. You're talking about what I understand is like a clinical hypnosis or hypnosis that can help you move through some of the stuff you were saying earlier. Addiction or eating issues or smoking are probably a lot of other. Other stuff too right right and one of the things that will tell people is. They'll say to me. Oh Eric. Are you GonNa? Make Me Bark like a dog, or are you? GonNa make me click like a chicken, and they're trying to reference you know what they see in stage. hypnosis in one of the want everybody to understand about hypnosis really is that yes, you can do things in hypnosis like you see in a stage hypnosis show, but those shows really are for entertaining. So the purpose of those shows really to demonstrate. Wow! Isn't this ICAL function of the mind? Is it really possible for me to be able to forget my first name? And under what circumstances would that be useful right we'll. It's not released. In that case, and so, can we take that function? Though is there something that can we demonstrate the power of the mind and help? You not experienced the pain chronic pain that you've been experiencing. Can we use hypnosis and help you overcome your limiting beliefs and figure out why you keep eating, even though you're not hungry and so I like to ask my clients when they when they ask me those questions. Questions about clicking a chicken or barking like a dog, I say well. Is that what you really want to do? In Your Life like that? That can kind of demonstrate the power of hypnosis, but if we're really talking about empowering your mind, what would you really liked to do? Because nobody has ever once asked me to to be able to cook like a chicken therapeutic setting people are interested in that. They want to stop smoking. They want to stop being and so that really is part of my job. As a hypnotist is to say, Hey, you know that's that's cool in that. That's interesting, but if you really could have the full power of the human mind, what would you really want to do right

"heart" Discussed on From the Heart: Conversations with Yoga Girl
"All of these things spoke this book tour. This business personal issue me than having right now. There's three creative projects that I'm knee deepen that I will be able to share in a little while but not just yet all this stuff happening and then out of everything anything and this was a nice reflection for me to all of these things what actually is bringing me of peace. What is what is helping me feel ordered and centered entered inside of myself. I'm the one answer to that. This Crystal Clear Is Yogurt Girl Foundation. We Launch Girl Foundation a couple of days ago if you follow me on social social media on instagram. I'm sure you've followed along ended up. A big launch party at the studio and yes is a lot of work. I'll share a little bit more in a second but there's something about this project. That's different from everything else because it brings me a sense of peace. It brings me a sense of calm and that is a I think a really important thing for all of us to remember that whatever we feel like we're drowning in stuff whenever we feel unsettled happy a really beautiful wonderful way to turn that around is to look up and away from our own ship to look up and away from our own day today the stuff we this is just the reality of the human condition we are all of us are very self-centered. I am very self-centered. I can get very stuck in what I am doing. What's happening in my world and what's happening in my business la. La La my family my this that you know we are. We are human beings. It's it's very a normal but whenever we are moving through something that's challenging us. The best way to shift out of that space is to look up and then realized there was a whole wide world out there of other people who are who are you know living completely different realities than you are and the thing that's making you complain a lot right now or the thing that isn't feeling good or the thing that you're trying to settle in your life understanding other people's life scenarios just opening your eyes to other people's realities is. GonNa make that issue shrink immediately immediately. It's going to gain you some perspective right. It's GONNA director awareness toward the things that you have in your life that are actually Salih working as opposed to being really stuck and focused on the things that aren't and launching over Girl Foundation for me. It's been two years of of work and almost you know we worked on it for so long now for so long it's two years November. Two thousand seventeen almost exactly two years November twenty seventeen eighteen. I decided to launch this foundation that this is the direction we're going to go and it's been two years of work and now the foundation is officially launched and live and you know people are donating and we have a website and we have a project that we're moving toward all of that. That's how long that took for an immediate immediate. EST mediatised as myself. That's pretty pretty impressive to have a project kind of idling right or happening behind the scenes for that amount of time before launch and your foundation is a foundation centered around helping women and children that have suffered through abuse trauma poverty neglect anything that's challenging. You know making growth really really really hard to find two years ago. I have a podcast episode about this this. I don't recommend you listen to it because it's horrible not the podcast per se but the the story of what happened in Aruba. I'll share shared very very briefly now without out getting into the heart stuff but a five year old boy was brought into the emergency room here on the island by his own mom. She said that he had fallen at the playground and he was complaining the planning that he was in pain and he had when they took him in they discovered he had the the extent of his injuries. Were just inexplicable. He had been the he had bones that have been broken for months right not tended to he had been basically tortured his whole life and and died the next day by the extent of his injuries and when this was uncovered all of a sudden they realized that this in this fifty minutes from my house this this family lived fifteen eighteen minutes away from where I live when this all was uncovered of course it became this huge thing in the press people could not believe and it was because it was so gritty right it was so awful so unspeakably awful what happened to him and it was all over the press and then they realized that his his daycare that oh he has a little brother either but he hasn't been here for a while and there had been no follow-up whatsoever. He just stopped showing up. I think the parents said he's sick not feeling well and he stopped coming to school and there was no follow up. There was no no one you know went to his house. There was no no action taken from there and you know the whole island had I think three days where the whole island was looking for him. He was missing missing missing and after three days they found him buried in the back of his parents house so he actually passed away from his injuries. He was three years old. He had passed away from his injuries before his older brother so these these two boys lived in this horrific reality right their whole lives from from being born with just unspeakably horrific and this unearthed in Aruba by this massive issue of child abuse massive massive massive issue of child abuse that isn't spoken about that isn't talked about that isn't in the media that isn't public knowledge and it's combination of several things one. It's really hard to talk about. It's really hard to absorb. Just me telling this abbreviated light version of the story. I'm sure it's hard to listen to for you. I'm sorry if it is and I'm also grateful that you are listening because it's important that you listen to living on a small island. Everybody knows everybody right. Everyone knows every family so there's been you know for forever for for for decades for. I am thinking centuries. This idea that you know whatever whenever something terrible is unearthed that you keep it to yourself right. You don't WanNa shame shame another family. Everybody knows everybody's. There's always someone who has some connection to someone else and there's this mentality of sweeping everything under the rug even by mental health professionals nationals even at the hospital even by the police because that's how small this community is and sometimes that has happened on behalf of the children. There has been this idea that you you know. This child is going to grow up living in the small community. You don't want that child to carry the stigma of having been abused right or having grown up in an abusive home because everybody knows everything. It's impossible possible to keep things contain on in such a small community but what that has done is its cap the cycle of abuse ongoing forever. It doesn't end so this happened in November. I shared about it in social media. I cried myself to sleep. I think for three weeks easily. Oh my God okay Yeah I. This is fucking shit but I think about these boys like I think about that. I see their faces. This had their picture. US made screen saver for for months on my phone. Just I can talk about the situation. You know like this is the reality ability and broad strokes and that's okay. I can share that not fall apart but I can't think about them. You know he's little boys. I can't because there might fall apart. Doesn't I can't continue this fucking podcast so it is is a really hard thing to talk about hand. The fact of the matter is that this is something that's really common in every country country of this world. It's common in Sweden. We have the stadium Sweden that it's the perfect country one of the best countries in the world. It's estimated that the three kids in every class is sexually abuse at home in Sweden in the United States. Four children die from child abuse every day every day and seventy percent of those kids are under the age of three four kids every day in the US. It's it's it's a problem that exists everywhere and it's a problem. That's you know way bigger than just one single case but what happened for me. When this kind of became apparent it became this huge thing in the media. I didn't know right. I spent ten years in a robot focusing. All of my service work on animals here. You know I have sergeant pepper's friends. It's the biggest animal rescue organization in Aruba. We founded that from scratch. We have an animal shelter we focus on the animals because I didn't know the I felt almost like men however I spent so much time pouring money time energy awareness social media posts all this stuff about the animals and there's kids dying on this island fifteen minutes away from my house you know of course you know as a soul human being I'm. I'm not responsible for this but I have a lot of influence. I have a lot of power. I have a lot of go it me right a lot of driving meet to make a change and immediately. I decided okay. We need to do something now. We need to help these kids. We need to find out what the reality of this of the situation is. Not just a Aruba also in Sweden also in other places of the world and it turns out the reality is way worse than I could have done. I could possibly ever imagined so. The reason took us so long to launch this foundation. You'll recall foundation the point of it for me for everything that yoga girl does your girl as me. You know me as a person. Sonja regards the Brown community or girl the platform everything we do. You know whether it's retreats programs or you know. INSTAGRAM impose were if we release products or events like whatever it is that we do within the Yorker Platform. Everything needs to be leading or moving towards your foundation that every single thing we do has a purpose right everything so we decided who immediately or I decided to immediately to donate ten percent of every single everything every product that we sell every shirt resell every retreat we do every teacher training we do immediately goes through. Google Foundation to help kids in need and we added women in there because the mothers are often in these situations so so so often often very rarely. I mean we know women are very rarely perpetrators but very often also victims in these situations and it took us two years to get to a place of actually really being able to launch because one. There's no statistics to be found when we started. We've done one hundred fifty three interviews with a hundred and fifty three professionals on this tiny little.

"The point where supporting her with words just wasn't doing doing it it. It started even to me sounding a little like formulaic. I'm sorry i'm sorry i'm sorry back in two thousand eleven eleven and twelve. I decided that one of the things i'm i love to do and i'm pretty good at is public speaking so i wrote this book every leadership and i started doing a keynote speeches and i give one hundred percent of my gross speaking fees and one hundred percent of the proceeds to honor my wife life and i do it for brain cancer research the organization which i love is head for the cure. They're actually in downtown. Kansas city sixteen o seven oak an extraordinary organization founded by matt anthony in his family because matt lost his brother to a brain tumor in two thousand and three. It's got a a staff now that it's grown to probably fifteen people. It's centered around five k. events but it's now expanding but it was kansas city the only at one point in two thousand nineteen. There's going to be twenty eight cities. The organization raises millions of dollars and i love it that is a that is what our families supports because of the anthonys and because of personally my wife chris and her illness and so that adds a level of drive and want to win and personalization to everyone of my speeches choose that i think puts an edge to it. That's good <hes> it makes me want to do it. I i rarely to be very fair. I i'm not sure i've ever been hired to speak speak because i give the money to charity. It is a factor if there are five factors. It's the fifth one it's on the list but but it's not the fifth one because if you're running a business and end i've been hired several times by cisco systems. They love my message. I get a chance to speak it to their senior. Leaders and talk about culture leadership. They are ecstatic that i give the money that they pay me to charity but that is not the reason they choose me. I have to be good at what i do and i have a message that resonates with people so that there's some application in learning for the or but make no mistake they still still think it's very cool and i'm glad they do and i do not come up short when it comes to talking about raising money for charity and so it gives me a form to be able to do that as of today gonna ask. I'm laurie hundred sixty seven thousand dollars doing these speeches. I'm not famous so i tend to get hired for somewhere between three and eight thousand dollars to do a keynote but it's amazing how that mounts up i though but i'd also thousands and thousands of the books and so oh eh managed to total from get real business alone three hundred sixty seven thousand dollars it's gone to the cure and i'm not stopping just in case. You wonder that's awesome. That's awesome. We've never stopped with the energy you have. I can't see you stopping at we can't stopping either and i wanna thank you and appreciate we just lost the family member a couple of weeks ago the brain cancer. Oh my wife's uncle so i i'm sure i appreciate everything that you're doing to give back and so when you were mentioning the three rs that definitely popped in my head about what you're doing to reinvest back in the back in the community routes so harry people want to learn more about you and your books and or head for the cure what what can they go to get more information. Thanks for asking. I left that out and i shouldn't have my website harry. S campbell dot com has the links needed to head for the cure and to amazon to buy the books and to ask me a question or to hire me to speak you can find out my bio if you're interested in where my storage are gonna come from the c._f._o. Would fit as a speaker but harry campbell dot com would i would say the center avid avenue from an organization standpoint head for the cure. Dot org is awesome. Several million more dollars will be raised this year and it is an extraordinarily low. Oh administrative organization with a vast majority of the dollars raised go. They are working dollars that go to help find a cure for four brain cancer and i'm very proud of that and i'm proud of how the organization is run jenna and as the executive director is just amazing using and i don't think i would be involved with it if it didn't have the right cause but it also wasn't administratively run so it was putting a vast majority jordan the money directly into the cause as opposed to paying staff. That's not what we're about and i salute that whole organization. I hope that my third book feeds my soul the way the my first two did and enables me to get a lot of speeches and as long as that happens. I'm going to keep pounding forward because when i started started this i didn't dream that i could get to five hundred thousand but in the next few years i have a chance to have a total of five hundred thousand raised in as a support horton tribute to my wife in the fight that she's gone through. That would be very cool. Were thinking of your wife and the fight that you're the you're going through into the fight what you're going through to to raise the funds. I'm sure i can speak for abraham when i say <hes> that are sold today so we really appreciate you being being read this and spending yvonne mary thanks for joining. I love it. I love you. Thanks guys so we wanna thank campbell round two with harry speaking of airy. What's interesting about harry. It's we've seen the conclusion of the.

I was like for all this goodness question. We didn't ask him. I need to follow up with him as his his favorite character from game of thrones because as pure heart barry saint like man. That's a dark dark show to be watching. You likes to throw down to his wives. We wanna thank harry again in harry cenex. We'll be talking game of thrones any ronald talk about the the conversation. Will i'm excited. This show is not just relevant. I think he meant to focus on not people in the business world. I think there's a huge niche niche where he's actually addressing all this freelance. People who are in entrepreneurial game mindset is such an important thing. We don't have the right thoughts in the views in the right emotional state. We can't continue to really deal what we're called to doing. If you're in the entrepreneurial game it is such an important thing.

"There was no no one to talk to? There were no blog. They're I I didn't know anyone that was actually experiencing the same. I'm sure there were but no one was talking about it. And so I I remember one day to kind of breaking down on my bed and just praying to God and saying no this is no life and I I made. I made a promise. What's that that night on my bed when I was just like in fetal position and broken down I? I made a promise that this wasn't going to end with me. God Somehow Oh how could just give me the determination to get healthier. He could help me get healthier than that. I was going to do something good with it and so I got healthy and I was able to turn myself around and so I see it as my my goal in life and what I meant to do is help others get unhealthy and help inspire others to to get up and get healthy because it's scary. It's frightening nothing about it is comfortable and easy. And just if people hear my story and can even relate to it just a little bit they can just fight through that fear and understand that it. The fear never goes away. It never gets better better but you learn to live with it and you learn to adjust strike it down a moment it comes up. And what advice do you have for women. Living with her disease. My advice advice would be one to talk about it to find individuals in their life who are willing to talk to them and help them work through it to just to now I it yourself to have those moments where you break down and you cry because you can't be strong until you just break down into pieces and and in that moment where you are able to actually bring yourself together and start the fight and then I think my next set of advice would be to adjusts not settle with existing to push yourself to truly live life. Whatever that means for that person to just find? There's something in life that they love that they're passionate about into fight for it because that's going to make them better. You mentioned that earlier when you were going through your your journey at least initially didn't have a lot of people to talk to and there wasn't a space right so blogs or instagram to connect to other survivors or a community or as I call it now a movement where it's visible and there people actually living with heart disease who are talking about it. What do you think we can can do to raise awareness because a lot of people are still not aware that heart disease is the number one killer of women in this country again? I think Eh podcast like yours are going to be huge because it it comes down to networking in it. It comes down to finding various groups of people that you can reach out to so so for me. I obviously working with. You is going to be amazing. I work directly with the American Heart Association. I'm working together with Local hospital in my area to get the word out there and again with me. American Ninja Warrior to me. That was going to be the huge platform. Take kind of get my voice out to millions. who either wouldn't wouldn't have heard or never would have known in in the one thing that I've always said does that? I don't want people to remember my name and face. I want them to remember my story and to remember that like the fight is just worth it so yeah networking working. Networking is is key and finding those kind of larger formats to the league. Get Your Voice out there. That is so true because I like you believe that through storytelling right talking and connecting with other women and families and survivors. Then we'll get the word out that look it's it's US right. There's a face at my young person affected by this. Because I know whenever I share my story and the different groups and speaking seeking engagement the one thing I hear all the time but you're so young I'm sure you've heard that. Yep Yep many times like you're so young or oh you're so healthy like a lot of people say oh I'm really sick. I can't do this and I look at them like. Do you think I came from like I always with Bersin. I never thought I could be the person I was. I was sick person. I was sick. Mom that was it right. It is mindset and just having that shift and for everybody it is different but once they're able to make that shift mentally then you know the the world is really yours. What has living with her disease taught you living with heart? Disease has taught me that. I'm really blessed and I know that probably sounds Really funny because I I've been through a lot and I've I've gone through a lot of really scary experiences but if I didn't have heart to even had I not gone through do that moment of realizing that like I guess realizing how nonchalant I went about life I would never be taking in the moment says I do like every coming hug and kiss my son now. I I know it could be the last minute I do that. And every time I hug my fiance or say good night to them. I know that can be the last time and I think because of that. I've surrounded myself with so many amazing people who believe in living life in moments and and you just you stop taking advantage of of people and situations you just you just know that nothing can be taken for granted and I feel so blessed to be living the bank the life that I do because I I know everything can get taken away in an instant and in when you know that you do you live life to the fullest and it's incredible credible amen to that So before we wrap up any final thoughts is there anything. I haven't asked you that you would like to share with us. I think the last piece of invites that I would give to anyone going through. This is just not to give up the fight and if they find something in life that scares them to to to chase it because when you chase your that when you end up on on the other side happier than you could've ever believed that is so true. And and where can we find you molly. We WanNA connect with you on social media. Yeah so I am on instagram under Mali Hemp Hill climbs. And then I also have a website which is heart for adventure dot Org And I kind of use that as a platform to to reach got to others and Try to try to let others know things. I've gone through her patient. Absolutely great and with Europe era platform and just reaching out and continuing to be an advocate. And speaking more people will become aware. And it's great to that you are active your physical. Oh you're living your life and other people look at that. And they're like Oh my God. I WANNA do that too. So it's just amazing that you're able to turn your story and to use that to motivate rotate you and ultimately to impact other people's lives and it's a great thing and I only hope that I can help a lot of people and and one thing that I always say is a dog. Don't reach out for people to let I want people to reach back out to me and I respond that everyone that does whether it's email on my side on on instagram. I just I always connect absolutely.

"Doing rock climbing competitions and I am competing again a lot of really good rock climbers and and I'm like keeping up with all of the men that I know that rock climb and so at that point I submit another video for American Ninja Warrior. And and I. I sent that to them to to kind of showcase what I've been doing as well as the work that I'm doing with American Heart Association so they know more about me and my background sure enough early this year. I got the call that said that I made it on American enjoy warrior. That's awesome. Is it for this current season. Yes Ah so the run through of the show It was for the La Qualifiers. It was in the back lot of Hollywood studios and it happened on March march six however I let them producer and casting director. Now that I couldn't do it because they had to have shoulder surgery and so they were. They were falling doing my instagram and they. They knew that I had injured my shoulder from rock climbing. I for my Laborem and completely detached. My Mike biped up how hard I've been training know. Reserve your spot for next season. You're guaranteed a spot. Yes yes they did so they let me know. Have your surgery. He'll up train. Come back next year. I told my son I'm like no like I got the call I made it and my son told me mom you don't need to prove anything you made it on the show you did episode your promise but for me I want to step on that stage Asian I wanNA run through that obstacle course my goodness but how green is a to set a goal work hard to achieve that that goal and to finally get it even though you didn't make the run because of your shoulder but to actually get selected and get the Call Hall to achieve your goal and to have your son say you did it mom the ad that was huge when I when I got the phone call I was just in complete clete tears and I was in complete shock just because of everything that I had gone through to get here I. I don't know if I ever believed that it would happen. Bend but somewhere along the way it got the point where I believed that I could do and in through this whole process. I I no longer need to take heart medication because because of the physical activity in the cardio that I put into this from just pushing myself like a normal athlete fix some of those electrical issues. So it's really really rare that I ever have arrhythmia point and my resting heart rate. which used to be a hundred beats per minute is now about seventy beats per minute so it's pretty incredible to let's see how even with heart disease I was able to strengthen it and I I do have a cardiac device now So I had that towards the end of last year and until I was out for a few weeks but y'all got back into climbing and it it does definitely hasn't stopped me from from doing anything or training and in fact I run a lot faster astor now than I used to do. which is pretty cool? So molly how do you keep yourself motivated during difficult times because it sounds like you're pretty motivated. Automated screw it. I'm just going to do what I want. I'm GonNa live my life and be happy about it but but how do you keep that energy going. I think it's because of everything everything that I went through like having having a bad marriage where where I had someone. That wasn't supporting me wanting to get healthy. It just threw me off like I have to do this for myself. And I'm going to do it and I had a lot of people in my life that didn't believe in me and I think because there is a lot of people that didn't believe believe me it just kind of like it. was that that plane that just kind of let that fire now like while I'm going to do it like watch me do it and I just put in the work and I just ate really clean and started eating food that fueled my body that fueled my heart and even after shoulder surgery. I I still don't know when I can climb again. It's going to be a handful of months. And so for her two weeks after surgery I was told you can't do anything and I. I was personally really afraid that I kind of get like a little depressing kind of go into that dark space like what I did when I was sick but those two weeks were actually pretty great rats from normal. Aw workload that I put myself through with with training inside Kinda sat on my couch for for two weeks and and Bend Watch the office which was great it was a really great too weak and then after that I talk to my physical therapist. I'm like okay. What can I do so she said well? You can do a stationary bike. And I was like. Oh my gosh really and and so I had to figure out how to make it fun so like okay. Let's do thirty minutes on the stationary bike. So I did that. And then the next day it was okay. Well I'm going to increase the intensity do thirty minutes. And then the day after that I decided to increase the intensity and do forty five minutes and so every day. I just kind of everyday through my recovery from my shoulder. I've made a game of what I've been doing because nothing about me loved stationary bike and nothing about me. Love running that kind kind of made games of everything like seeing how fast I can run and in seeing how long it can go on the stationary bike at a higher intensity and it's again made made my heart stronger because the other day went out on a run for two miles in my face was nine minutes fourteen seconds. which for me? It's back like I don't think I've ever done table. The eleven minute mile let alone over over two miles so I was were made really fast as well because I'm somewhere at fourteen minutes and so when I when I kind of I am seeing this and I've been a little sad about the fact that I can't climb I am but I'm seeing these other challenges that I've never looked at like especially with running. I'm like okay. Well how much can I push myself over three miles and so for me again. It's just it's a game and I think to myself will. How can I make this fun? What can I do to push myself? How can I make myself better stronger? And I'm like in the best cardio shape I've ever been in because I've taken that time away from climbing wall my shoulder he'll just focus on my heart and Cardio Oh and pushing myself and my legs are just. They're so sore there though that. That's great do you sometimes feel After going through everything you've gone through that you could just do anything like 'cause I know for me. I use that as fuel so when I'm up against thank you know a challenge or stressful situation or just live struggles everyday struggles and challenges. That comes or way I literally say to myself I self. You've been through to open heart surgeries. You'll be okay. Do you use that sometimes to motivate yourself to push through. Yeah absolutely the I I use that all the time because I in fact I have a a necklace that I wear. That says unstoppable. And I don't wear it because I'm arrogant or or cocky I wear it because I know that there are things in life. That could stop me. I mean they're unforeseen thing But as long as I'm pushing as long as I'm trying like nothing can stop me and so when I have things that come my way I just I pushed right career whether it's work or that happened in my personal life. I always remember like I been through Helen back with my sickness. And I've been through hopelessness. I've been through my heart stopping and not being able to do anything like I can get through this and again it's just for me. It's motivation in and because of that I don't give myself excuses I think the biggest thing if I'm tired if I'm exhausted because maybe my heart got kind of have a good workout the day before instead of saying note. I'm going to take the day off. I say Noah I'M GONNA push my heart a little bit harder because it needs to be stronger and I just I push rush myself and I don't let being tied or not feeling good the in excuse for me why sharing your heart disease survivor's story with other women important to to you for me. It is really important because I again. I understand how isolating it was in. When I was sick like years ago there was.

"Stats. They immediately immediately brought me to the back and I was given a realm which for anyone who's been to the emergency room is hard to instantly get in there so that should have kind of hit me off that something bad was going on so after you got your room in the emergency room did did yes? You had an idea that okay. This is probably more serious than I thought but wasn't alarm bells at that point for you know at that point. I didn't even have alarm bell that it was more it just kind of nervousness of. Oh well what are they going to do. And how are they GONNA slow my heart down I it didn't hit me until I had the bunch of people rush into the room and Doctors and nurses told me that I was in a really dangerous Arrhythmia and that they had had to stop my heart which again being? I was only twenty five years old at the time. And I'm looking around thinking like what do you mean you. We need to stop my heart lake. Don't you just give people medicine for this I didn't realize that it was dangerous. And here. I am like two and a half hours. After it started did dealing with this really bad arrhythmia not realizing that it could have killed May. So I'm I'm sitting there and and they bring in this. Really strange into the medication is called Edina seen And it comes in an injection. And and what they have to do they have to Just put it through intravenously genius. They push it down really hard to get it to go through your veins quickly and so they came in. They did that and I just remember this horrible horrible Russia's pain across my head. I felt like I was on fire. I have this horrible headache and then a pain across my chest down my arm down down both legs and I remember trying to like Moan in pain but I couldn't even get a noise out and That didn't stop might do that. That didn't slow my heart down like it like it should have. It stopped my heart but when my heart started beating again is still in a really dangerous arrhythmia so they decided after after that to Double the dosage. They did that again and again. Just the intense pain across my face and my head down my arm can leg and I just remember just feeling absolutely horrible and it just it completely takes the breath out of you And on my heart surgery beating again after that It was still going one hundred eighty permanent and it wasn't flowing. No my God so I have to ask you this. What happens when they stop your heart or you still conscious? Yeah so when they stopped your heart you are still conscious when it happens I think for some people they they deepak out But I was. I was conscious because it. It's a very short period of time. I think it's somewhere between like one and three seconds When your heart stops and and so for me staying awake through that it was the Mojo intense pain? I've ever been through in my entire life. It it's a feeling that I I can't really describe but it it was really scary. It was really really scary. It sounds terrifying so that did not work the second time after they doubled up on the dosage so At that point they left the room. I came in like just a couple minutes later. And that's when they let me know. I know that they needed to cardioversion me. The doctor gave me a piece of paper and and explain that Like one of the things could happen. That that The cardioversion will stop my heart and bring it back to a normal rhythm. It could stop my heart and then begin in an even more dangerous arrhythmia or won't start again and so he explained that the waiver that I needed to sign a acknowledging the fact that I might not wake up after that all my God. That's awful just to be in that situation everything going going on all at once and then having to sign of course I understand that I may die yet and it. It was pretty awful because I I remember like in that moment when I was signing the piece of paper I was thinking about my son at my parents house and how I just kind of nonchalantly like hugged him and kissed on like I didn't it in my head out of the twenty five year old. I didn't realize that that could have been the last time my son saw me and I knew that because he was so little there's just he wouldn't have even remembered me AF I didn't make it and having to go through all of those things and my head really brought to life the importance of of living in moments and. I don't think that most young people realize that until you go through a situation where you you realize that your life could just be gone in an instant absolutely we absolutely so you signed the waiver and they operated on you yet though I sign the waiver and they use propofol to me too late and then they cardi. We averted me and I woke up. I had these burn marks on my chest and on on my back from them Having Cardio voted me and when I woke up the I was I really happy that I was. I was waking up and I asked them I said did at work. They said Yeah. We think it worked But it was only thirty minutes later. My hurt went back to one hundred. Eighty beats per minute My goodness at that point they had had to give me a special type of Beta blocker. With which is a medication not out kind of relaxes the heart and slow down And and luckily for me that I did work So I was hospitalized after that for a few days while they kind of ran some tests to figure out what was wrong. Where your parents call or you? Did they show up at any point during that whole process. Yes so my son's father was was with me and right before our radio voted. I told them that I didn't want him to call my parents to let them know what was going on until he knew whether I made it or not. Because I didn't want him calling them beforehand and letting them know. Hey this could happen. I would rather have been called afterwards just letting them know what what did occur I just I. I didn't want to worry them and I felt that was the right thing to do to kind of guard them so that way I mean they'd either get a call with good news or bad news rather than having to wait to find out what the news would be right. That must've been awful choice to make but I do understand understand And even in that moment when you were going to your own struggle you were thinking about your parents and protecting them. Yeah absolutely yeah I. I wanted to make sure that they were okay. And I didn't want them having to sit around and wait for a call to find out whether whether or not their daughter was going to be okay so that was successful. You are in the hospital for a couple of days and then discharged home where there any after effects of the procedures and then are there any limitations living with your condition. Yeah so shortly afterward. They ended up removing my thyroid breath because my thyroid was overactive and it was causing a lot of those heart problems. So I had the underlying electrical issue It's an extra pathway halfway creating that really fast heart rate But by removing the thyroid they were really hoping not would fix the problem but it didn't and so for the next three years after that I was in and out of just multiple procedures multiple of leash and that they all echocardiogram to try to figure out if there were other issues creating those additional Kaku as and and finally the decision. Not they they him to. Is that the additional pathway that was creating my Arrhythmia Because after that point in time I was having arrhythmias every single day multiple. We'll times per day. They realized that they couldn't Ab- laid it. If they did that then it would leave me with a pacemaker and Because I had a really really conservative surgeon at the time he was against doing not I remember waking up from that that particular procedure in him telling me no. We couldn't do you it. We weren't able to a late yo and it was kind of that moment of of hopelessness where I just I had gone. The last three years is not living life. I couldn't even walk up the stairs without my heart going crazy and I was afraid.

"Welcome to the heart life with me today. I Have Lisa and Lisa is a stroke survivor. And she's going to share hear her story so it led a different today because usually we talked a heart disease survivors but we know that heart disease and stroke. They are related combined. They're the number one killer of women in the United States and the respecters are pretty much the same. So thank you Lisa for coming on and agreeing to share your story story with us and welcome thank you very much. Thanks for having me and before we get started and jump into your stroke story. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself. Something you want us to know about you. I'm sure my name as you said as Lisa Deck I live in Massachusetts. It's I am a mom of two married and Lucky to be here and lucky to have gone through over half my life as a stroke survivor. So I I'm very very grateful to be here and happy to share my story. Can you tell us what happened when it happened. When did you have your first stroke? My my first job happened. When I was twenty one years old I was just about to graduate from College at American University in Washington? DC and looking back. I had all the signs is in symptoms of a stroke but didn't know stroke could happen to young people I went to one hospital and my left side was numb my arm my leg and a little bit of my face and I had a really bad headache and sensory overload and the first hospital actually sent me home thinking it was a Migraine and I just think that they didn't realize is that strokes could happen to young people After a couple more days and I had some more confusion trouble speaking I actually went to another hospital. And that's when they diagnosed go with a stroke I had to call my parents who are living in Rhode Island and tell them I had a stroke and it was terrifying in scary and really overwhelming coming. Because I didn't know that stroke could happen to somebody a young healthy otherwise healthy woman I just didn't realize that could happen so clearly. It was very shocking. I can imagine a twenty one year old. What was your parents reaction to just to that news? At that time I mean I think it was also complete shock. I mean I've been keeping them in the loop how I didn't feel well but I don't think anybody thought it was as bad as it was and you know they had to fly down urgently to get to me and my mom got lost and it was one of these stories that you always hear but Now that I am a mom I can only imagine the fear that went through them and I don't think when it was happening to me I could think about their perspective because it was all about me at the moment of surviving But now that I'm a mom I can only imagine how terrifying to be for my parents must've been and were they able at that time to diagnose you to figure out what caused us the stroke at such a young age. So this is where my story continues They were not able to diagnose me they eventually released from the hospital. I was able to graduate agitate but I had to do some occupational therapy to get Feeling back in my hand about a couple of months later I went. I started my first job and this ended up being about six months after the initial stroke. I had the same symptoms again and I called my neurologist and he told me I needed to get to the hospital and at this point I had had suffered a second stroke. And they said we're going to admit you until we figure out what is going on. And they tested me for everything. And ultimately the million the end they diagnosed central nervous system vascular which is inflammation of the blood vessels in your brain so I was diagnosed with that disease. And they were guessing edit treatment. You know they weren't exactly sure because it was very rare but they decided on prednisone and blood thinners and cytotoxic boxing chemotherapy It was sort of a full court press on the disease where you twenty one twenty one at this time or was that it was actually I had turned twenty two twenty two that I'm still young. I was working my full job and I think at the beginning of this time. I was clearly the and denial because I was still working and exercising and going to chemo and then go into work. And I I mean I I was pushing it but I think I was just trying to maintain a sense of normalcy over that. The course of this Debilitating Treatment I eventually had a third stroke taking out of work and eventually moved home to my parents in Rhode the island and six months after that last stroke I was actually declared in remission of the disease so this was very much a successful successful protocol at the moment. We all felt pretty secure that I was doing well and I was starting to work my way back to somewhat of Health Health I still wasn't working but I was you know able to. You know go about my daily life again getting back to normal for fourteen years I lived Like that I was a volunteer with the heart association and the strokeassociation volunteering in many different capacities and my story actually continues Mus- In two thousand fifteen three years ago at the age of thirty nine I was serving as an national spokeswoman for the go red for women movement have been of the American Heart Association so I had done a couple of big events and I had kinda launched a facebook page and really was trying to utilize this opportunity eighty to share my story to let people know that stroke doesn't discriminate and stroke can happen to anybody and how important it is to take action and during this time in March of Twenty fifteen my left side went numb again. This was shocking because usually after a day I could rest and it would feel better after day four. I decided I better go back and get it checked yet. When I went to the hospital I was still absolutely shocked that I had suffered four stroke now? Did that your mind at any point. I know you've had that fourteen years of just you know living a fairly normal life and being an advocate but in two thousand fifteen when you started to experience since those symptoms. Did it cross your mind. That possibly could be another stroke. War Did you not want to go with your thinking. You know it's interesting. I must've not. I wanted to go there because I clearly educated in stroke I clearly know the signs and symptoms but for some reason I just assumed it was a blip. I thought maybe maybe I don't know I was too tired. I was you know I still just didn't really expect. I would ever have another stroke and maybe again. It was just positive the thinking but I was. I was thrown for a loop by that it. Yeah and I think it was also a different stage. You know when you're a twenty one year year old single person and who's relying on your parents to take care of you now at thirty nine. I have two young children. I have a husband My parents are still here. But you know it it's a different different situation And it quickly escalated to an even more serious situation which I'll get to in a minute but I think the first thing I thought about when I had this fourth stroke was not myself but how to handle my children. How do I take care of them? How can I be there for them? It suddenly really wasn't only about me. It was more about them. And that was a new perspective and a new reality Being a mother and in having a serious problem during those fourteen years were you living in fear that you may have another stroke or because you were in remission at that point. Did you think that you know that whatever happened happened. And now you're looking forward and it's probably not going to happen again. I wish I could say the ladder but I think there has always been a little bit of fear in me over the fourteen years as much as I say was living a normal life. I still had tons of fatigue so I would need to rest often. I would still occasionally have what I now look back on his Tiaa. I thought they were. Just you know. Weakness or numbness or moments mints of seizure activity small things and I just always thought they were the residual from their earlier strokes and but to say I didn't. I didn't WanNa live in fear and I lived for the moment and I lived in every day as much as I can because I knew how precious life was but I think there is always that underlying like what if but I I would stuff it down and not think about that because it didn't do me any good to really worry so it's two thousand fifteen and you suffer the fourth four stroke. Yes and interestingly enough I was at a different hospital. I had moved to Massachusetts now and I was at a different hospital and the doctor said I think I'm GONNA have one more test but I want one neuro interventional radiologist to do it. I I think he needs to take a look at your skin so we had to wait a couple of days but he eventually did the scan and I walked into that office with my old films all my am. I films which some people listening may not even realize that films used to have to be printed and you carry around in these big yellow envelope so I had a whole stack of them. From my years. In my twenty s I brought those all to this neuro interventional radiologist and after looking at him right before I went in for my angiogram program. He said I don't think you have. I think you have Moya Moya disease and within moments I went under to go for the test and when I awoke woke he told me yes. You have moyer disease and she needs moines diseases I can it is a rare brain disease. that is narrowing of the middle cerebral artery Moy I mean puff of smoke in Japanese. And that's what the scan looks like. So I picture it sort of like the tree when you look at A brain and you can see all the blood vessels well the blood vessels because the blood can't get through it. They start narrowing and there are a little capillaries that kind of grow but they end up kind of blocking the blood so it ultimately over time decreases the blood flow in your brain so a long time. I did not have enough blood flow and occasionally when I was losing sensation having the stroke broke the blood would stop and it would be schemic stroke because the blood wouldn't get to that area for a certain amount of time so I now know this but at the moment I had no idea what moy it was I heard about about one and I was shocked and he said to me. It's okay. I used to work at the Moya Center at Stanford University so that so now I said yeah and I'm thinking okay. Great there is a star. Moya Moya Center this this is reassuring but then he kind of throws out and you'll probably need brain surgery. What was that moment of utter over? Well I couldn't believe it so over. The course of the next couple of weeks I started started having follow up with the neuro interventional radiologist neurologist neurosurgeon. And I would soon learn that my brain was in such a bad state. I would need not one but two brain surgeries and sort of like a heart Surgery they wanted to do a direct and indirect bypass to my brain so they take a vessel. They move.

Fifteen and then when I thought I was going to do something else at twenty and then had to re look at everything again in my mid twenties.

"So this episode of the podcast was all about me and my heart story and I promise so you. All the episodes won't be about me. Every week I will be interviewing a differen- heart disease survivor. And it's going to be in the format of an interview and I have of my producer here with me Sarah and she will interview me so you can have a sampling of some of the questions. And the things that will be discussing with her Guests going forward. So what would you say has been your lowest point or your biggest fear about your condition so my biggest fear right now is just knowing knowing that I will need another surgery. I know the day's GonNa come. Were I'm going to go in for one of my routine. Follow up appointments with my cardiologist. Just and we're going to have that conversation that it's time that the valve has deteriorated and now we need to go in and do another surgery. So it's something I think about from time to time. And why is sharing your heart story with other women. Something that's important to you. It's important to me because heart disease is the number one killer of women in this country and a lot of people aren't aware of that. I know when I go and talk and share my story. The one thing I the one feedback back I get is that all but you're so young. People are not aware that young people are affected and young women are affected. And I feel that by having these conversations and through this podcast or even just talking and interacting with people just sharing my story it puts a face ace to heart disease so they know okay. Here's someone I know or somebody who shared their experience and if by sharing my story I could get one woman to not really think about her health and think about the changes that she could make in her life just to protect her heart and prevent heart disease. Then it'll be worth it for me. And what advice do you have for other women that are living with heart disease. I think the one thing I will say that don't give up. You know. Just keep keep going try to live a meaningful life within those limitations. I know for me I love to travel and to experience different things and rather than sit and just be worried about the fact that I do have heart disease and I will need another surgery. I've decided to just live my life and still experience the things that I want to experience and have fun with it. So that's what I would say. Still continue to live your life and just have fun and many people are not aware that heart disease is the number one killer women in this country in the US. So why do you think that is. It's it's people think cancer they think breast cancer you know and of course. A lot of women are affected by breast cancer each year but a lot of folks just don't think heart disease is the number number one killer for women because they haven't heard enough stories so I'm hoping through this podcast. We can at least get the word out and by other woman then stepping up and sharing their stories. Then we'll start that conversation and hopefully we'll we'll raise awareness. And what do you think that you are. We can all do together to raise awareness about women and heart disease. I think it's I'm through storytelling. So really just sharing your experience with other folks and just advocacy. You know if you know someone who is living with heart disease just support and encourage them. There's so many different charities that Support women living with heart disease. But it's really just being as vocal about the issue and just visible about the issue so more or people will then be aware so what has living with heart disease taught you the one thing I would say is that just live you know. Don't own sweat the small stuff it's GonNa be okay whatever it is I know one of the things and this is just me when I'm going through something difficult whether it's at work or whatever it is I literally say to myself you've had two open heart surgery like get over it you know. So they're things that are far bigger and more important so it just try to live a meaningful life. Spent time with the people. You love. Do the things that you enjoy as well because you only got one shot at this life. So what are you thankful for. I am thankful for well to be alive because that story could have gone wrong in so many levels but my my daughter you know. She's of course as a parent. You Love Your Kid. That goes without saying right but I often joke that she saved my life because if she wasn't in distress when I was pregnant with her and they didn't have the emergency c section and then subsequently we found out I had heart issues issues than we both would have died because I was in heart failure I was going to die. Fire remained pregnant so I look at her and thankful for her. Because that whole situation kind.
