How about a wellness routine that actually works?Sophie Ulliano recommends four parts of a wellness foundation. Mindfulness. Start each day with meditation or prayer. Offer up an intention for the day. Nutrition. Eat a diet that is primarily plant-based. Morning smoothies are a great way to consume many plants at once. Fitness. Get 40 to 60 minutes of moderate to intense exercise every day. Self-care. It’s easy to put yourself last. Take leisure time to care for yourself. Don’t set yourself up to fail by overwhelming yourself. Reframe the changes so you think about wellness like a bank account with these four parts. Put small yet equal amounts of attention into your wellness account every day. You may not want to do these things every day but your body will thank you.Listen as Sophie joins Dr. Bond in this encore episode from 05/09/2018 to share how you can fill your wellness bank in the first 90 minutes of your day.

Taking shortcuts in the OTC aisle can be a health hazard.Over-the-counter drugs are an easy way to self-medicate when you need fast relief from some of life’s most common health obstacles. Research shows that 81 percent of adults use OTC medicines as a first response to minor ailments and seven in ten parents have given their children OTC medicines late at night to help aid sudden medical symptoms according to Consumer Healthcare Products Association.However taking shortcuts in the OTC aisle can be a health hazard.The perceived safety net vibe OTC medications emit by being readily accessible to anyone on a store shelf without a prescription is the reason why many people tend to overuse them for a wide range of ailments including cold and flu, pain, fever, heartburn, allergies and insomnia.

Learn how to use anger and frustration for good, instead of letting it take hold of you in a negative way.People are angry a lot these days. Whether it's based in political views or unfair treatment in the workplace, anger is a common occurrence. According to Joël Malm, counselor, communicator, and pastor, anger is a secondary emotion. It is actually a response to the threat of one of three basic needs: safety and security, connection with others, and empowerment. Anger is the response we emit to try to regain control and to overcome resulting feelings of abandonment, rejection, and humiliation.More than a mental state, anger can also have severe physical impacts -- particularly if you've held on to it for a lengthy period of time. Sleep issues, high blood pressure, depression, and inflammation are physical effects that can manifest due to chronic, unreleased anger.In his book, Fully You: Unlocking the Power of All You Really Are, Malm provides tips on how to use anger, frustration and resentment for good, instead of letting it take hold of you in a negative way.Listen as Malm joins Dr. Bond to discuss anger's detrimental effects and how you can turn it around.

Oftentimes advertised to promote brain health, omega-3s are also very important for aiding heart health.Nutrition plays an integral role in overall health and wellness. While that seems like a no-brainer, many individuals don't know what kind of nutrition is required for optimal health.Omega-3s are one of those key nutrients. Oftentimes advertised to promote brain health, omega-3s are also very important for aiding heart health. In fact, in 2002, the American Heart Association recognized the importance of eating fish twice a week for those without heart disease and recommends at least one gram of EPA+DHA for those with established coronary artery disease. Since then, additional research has shown that omega-3s may help you maintain healthy blood pressure, support healthy triglyceride levels, and manage your risk of heart disease. According to Jolie Root, Senior Nutritionist and Educator for Carlson Laboratories, omega-3s are also key in helping manage heart arrhythmia. Root joins Dr. Bond to explain why omega-3s are so essential for overall health, how they contribute to heart health, and what dosage is needed to realize those benefits.

Learn how to use anger and frustration for good, instead of letting it take hold of you in a negative way.People are angry a lot these days. Whether it's based in political views or unfair treatment in the workplace, anger is a common occurrence. According to Joël Malm, counselor, communicator, and pastor, anger is a secondary emotion. It is actually a response to the threat of one of three basic needs: safety and security, connection with others, and empowerment. Anger is the response we emit to try to regain control and to overcome resulting feelings of abandonment, rejection, and humiliation.More than a mental state, anger can also have severe physical impacts -- particularly if you've held on to it for a lengthy period of time. Sleep issues, high blood pressure, depression, and inflammation are physical effects that can manifest due to chronic, unreleased anger.In his book, Fully You: Unlocking the Power of All You Really Are, Malm provides tips on how to use anger, frustration and resentment for good, instead of letting it take hold of you in a negative way.Listen as Malm joins Dr. Bond to discuss anger's detrimental effects and how you can turn it around.

Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum discusses how fibromyalgia can be addressed effectively by optimizing the hormones in the body.According to the National Fibromyalgia Association, fibromyalgia is one of the most common chronic pain conditions. The disorder affects an estimated 10 million people in the U.S. and an estimated 3-6 percent of the world population. While it is most prevalent in women (75-90 percent of the people who have fibromyalgia are women), it also occurs in men and children of all ethnic groups.According to long-standing research and his personal work with treating chronic pain, Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum says fibromyalgia can be addressed effectively by optimizing the hormones in the body; particularly the "sex" hormones of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. By doing this, you restore the body's energy production capabilities. Dr. Teitelbaum warns that physicians should treat individuals uniquely, based on symptoms -- not necessarily on what blood work shows hormone levels to be. Listen in as Dr. Teitelbaum joins Dr. Bond to share more about this approach to treating fibromyalgia, as well as his S.H.I.N.E. protocol.
