But there was a problem, at the time you couldn’t find a NIr sauna. So, he began his journey to change that. Over the following years, Brian became consumed with creating the perfect product, fueled by the healing transformation of his personal experience with NIr Sauna Therapy. At the beginning, SaunaSpace was one big DIY project, where Brian did everything from designing his logo and website to building every sauna himself.  Today, Brian heads the 35-person team that operates 18000 square feet of workshop space. His personal journey to optimal health inspired him to create SaunaSpace’s Incandescent Sauna product line, in order to help others discover the pathway to natural healing, which now includes the world’s first Faraday-Cage Sauna.

I had a blast discussing herbs and herbal practices with Oscar who emphasizes the importance of using herbs in the bigger context of overall health and wellness. Herbs are also individual. Not every herb or mushroom works for every person in the same way. In fact, these compounds are highly individual. Check out the show notes for full references to everything we discussed and enjoy the episode! About Oscar Sierra Oscar hails from the martial arts where finding, feeling, and understanding Qi, Yin, Yang, and pressure points to humanely neutralize opponents easily transferred to TCM and helping restore balance as he pivoted to the medical arts. Oscar earned a Nutrition Science BS & minored in Anthropology with a focus on Traditional Medicine at UGA. After 3000+hrs of hands-on apprenticeship training and national board exams, Oscar earned Board Certification in both Herbal Medicine & Acupuncture in 2009. In addition to the valuable seminar, conference, and workshop continuing Ed. in ancient TCM--an invaluable addition to Oscar’s toolbelt--Oscar also continued studies in the more biomedical & systems engineering fields of Functional Med. & wholistic oncology. The amalgamative zenith of these is the ETMS where the ancient wisdom of Traditional Med. (Chinese, Ayurvedic, American Eclectic, Southern Folk) informs modern functional analytics to produce Patient-Centered care. You can usually find him custom compounding formulas for his Pt’s at his full-time private practice in ATL, Sierra Botanica & Collaborative Medicine and he also recently joined the clinician team at the Mederi Center--Donnie Yance's clinic in Ashland, OR. Show Notes Got into TCM through martial arts Failure of mainstream medicine to address nutrition Example of Herbs vs Drugs: Ephedra the drug vs Ephedra the whole plant Common people using herbs pharmacologically is not ideal Herbs are very individual Plants have their own flavors How to figure out what herb is right for you? Ashwagandha and Rhodiola don’t typically go together Licorice is in many formulas because it helps bond other herbs Herbs compliment only when other parts of lifestyle are in check: Diet, mold, etc Focus drug alternatives: Gotu Kola, Centella, Bacopa Monnieri .. combine w.

Oxalate is found in many "healthy" foods like leafy greens, nuts, and beets.  The body makes them naturally and can function fine with a low balance.   However, many people are told to eat these healthy foods that are high in oxalate as a part of a healthy diet and are experiencing many negative side effects.  In this discussion, Susan explains everything you need to know about oxalates, why they matter, and what they are doing to your body and brain.
