EP 200: Understanding Your Body Language With Kelly Love

Your body language is essential to your well-being, but do you know when your body speaks? Psychosomatic bodywork is an approach that combines different techniques that are rooted in guiding a person to reach their goals through different therapies. Among these include talk therapy, breathwork, and movement. It also includes somatic-emotional awareness and trauma release to reclaim one’s energy and physical presence.

Psychosomatic bodywork works by tapping into mind and body communication. It focuses on this connection so the therapist can work toward physical and emotional healing. In a way, it is possible to heal the mind and the body through the mind. But how does this truly work? Is it possible to adapt this in our everyday life?

In this episode, we would like to introduce you to Kelly Love. Kelly is a rewilding coach guiding you back to the truth of what your soul came here to do, be, and express through the body’s wisdom. Kelly uses transformative psychosomatic bodywork to help achieve physical and emotional healing.

Matts’s Experience with Body Language 

The left pectoral muscle is also lower than the right, speaking again into the feminine heart energy being drained out, exhausted, or having challenges encouraging and uplifting your own heart.

This is your solar plexus, and when the elbows are turned out, it signifies a history of giving away your power. Imagine a young boy with his arms out asking, “How much more do I have to give you for you to love me?

LOWER BACK: More hollowing shows a long history of busting your back to please/care for others vs. caring for your own needs and desires.

Standing Up for Your Health

Standing Up for Your Health

Standing Up for Your Health

Being an advocate for your own health is essential, especially as you age. If you feel you’re not receiving the right type of treatment, you may need to address previously overlooked health concerns or simply take a more active role in physical and financial matters involving your health. Advocating for your health and taking full responsibility for your own care can be both empowering and rewarding. So here are some tips from The Cup of Nurses to help you get started!

Maintain Healthier Habits

One crucial way you can advocate for your health is by actively maintaining it. Exercising and eating healthy on a consistent basis will help you to feel better and avoid illnesses and injuries more consistently. Having more physical strength also enables you to continue living independently. Working out often enough can be challenging if you have a busy work schedule but small movements throughout the day. Yoga can be a fun and challenging way to keep fit, as well!

Be Prepared

If you’re unsure what you might be dealing with, pull up some symptoms and express your concerns. To make things a little easier, you can always organize medical records and other important documents on a PDF. This free tool will enable you to edit a PDF online, which you can then save to your iPhone for easy access once you reach the doctor’s office.

Prepare for Insurance Needs

If you’re unsure about a diagnosis, get a second opinion! Whether or not you have Medicare, you need to know how your insurance policy in Virginia works, what it covers, and how often you can use it.

Stand Up for Your Care Needs

If you’re unsure about a diagnosis and want a second opinion, you shouldn’t feel bad about getting one. You’re the last defense against poor medical care and should be adamant about getting opinions you trust and being sure about them. If you don’t feel like the medical professional in Alexandria, you’re currently seeing is providing adequate care, don’t hesitate to explore other options.

Look After Yourself

Taking an active role in maintaining your health is essential. Not only does improving your health have a tremendous impact on your body, but it can also benefit your mind as well. When your body is healthy, you’ll feel less depressed. What’s more, your stress levels may decrease, too.

Be Brave

Dealing with health concerns or chronic conditions is never easy, so you’ll want to get familiar with your insurance plan and financial arrangements, hold your doctor accountable and ask questions. Don’t be afraid to involve a loved one if you need help or emotional support.

EP 197: How to Optimize Brain Function and Promote Neuroplasticity with Nicole Vignola

EP 197: How to Optimize Brain Function and Promote Neuroplasticity with Nicole Vignola

How to Optimize Brain Function and Promote Neuroplasticity with Nicole Vignola

The ability of the brain to adapt and change due to experience is called neuroplasticity. This umbrella term refers to the brain’s ability to change, grow neural networks, and reorganize. It can involve functional changes due to structural changes while you’re learning or can be altered due to brain damage. How does neuroplasticity affect us in the long run? And how can we develop it to help optimize our brain function better?

Our Guest 

In this episode, we would like to introduce you to Nicole Vignola. Nicole is a neuroscientist that focuses on cognitive neuroscience that investigates high-risk decision-making. Her previous research drew upon adult synaptic plasticity, whereby she reconstructed a section of the adult mouse somatosensory cortex using computer-based analytics to explore the wiring diagram of the human brain. This served as a springboard for further interest and research into the plasticity of mindset change and how these principles can be adopted into everyday living.

Nicole is also a business owner and entrepreneur who coaches individuals and consults with organizations on brain health, longevity, mindset change, and optimization using science-based evidence.

Questions for our Guest

The questions below are some we’d like to tackle. We often go off-topic, so we don’t expect to hit them all. If you have any ideas, please let us know.

Looking forward to our conversation!

These are the questions you had in Calendly. We’ll go off your questions and wherever else our conversation goes.

  1. Can you give us a little background about yourself?
  2. What are your previous research experiences?
  3. What is optimal brain health everyone should be aware of?
    • How do you optimize your brain for maximal performance? 
  4. Talk to us about the neuroplasticity of mindset change. How can you adopt the principles into everyday life?
  5. What are science-based methods for mental resilience and managing burnout? 
  6. What happens in the default mode network? 
  7. Knowing everything about brain and mental health, what does your day-to-day routines?

Psychotherapy & EMDR with Stephanie Polizzi

Psychotherapy & EMDR are therapies for many mental health issues, but what is it all about? What goes on during these sessions? 

Feeling anxious or stressed is something that we don’t want to feel. But unfortunately, we all go through this. Some of us have good coping skills, while others cannot deal with these negative emotions. The bad news is that we will go through many stressful life situations. The good news is we can overcome the negative thoughts that cause us to be anxious. How can we do it? What steps should we take to rid ourselves of anxiety? And can psychotherapy & EMDR help? 

Our Guest

In this episode, we would like to introduce you to Stephanie Polizzi. Stephanie is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) at Peaceful Living Mental Health Counseling in Westchester County, NY. She also works with teens and adults struggling with eating disorders, anxiety, trauma, behavioral challenges, and life transitions.

EP 194: Noninvasive Positive Pressure Ventilation with Aurika Savickaite

EP 194: Noninvasive Positive Pressure Ventilation with Aurika Savickaite

Noninvasive Positive Pressure Ventilation with Aurika Savickaite

Noninvasive positive pressure ventilation is a recognized alternative in managing selected cases of acute respiratory failure. It is a form of mechanical support where positive pressure delivers a mixture of oxygen and air through the respiratory tree using a noninvasive interface. It could be through standard ICU ventilators or portable devices. Now, if this is something new to you and you want to learn about NPPV, this episode is for you. 

For this episode, we would like to introduce you to Aurika Savickaite. Aurika has worked as a registered nurse and patient care manager at the University of Chicago Medical Center’s Medical Intensive Care Unit. Aurika was involved in successfully testing the helmet ventilator in the ICU at the University of Chicago during a three-year trial study.

In the episode, we focus on the benefits of helmet-based noninvasive positive pressure ventilation on patient outcomes.
