My guest today, Dr. Donna Marks discusses her book, "Exit the Maze." Donna's book is the best book that I have read on the illness of addiction and its successful treatment in the last 40 years. (With the possible exception of Freedom From Addiction 3 which I wrote). We discussed so many important things in this hour's interview that it would be hard for me to summarize them all in the show notes. But Donna, like myself, thinks outside of the box, and that's what makes her book a must-read for anyone who has an addictive behavior, has a family member with an addictive behavior, or has a friend with an addictive behavior. Donna can be contacted at www.drdonnamarks.com. or firstname.lastname@example.org.
In this current podcast, I interview Dr. David Hanscom's who is been on this podcast twice previously. Today's show is about a viable solution for the opioid epidemic and how to treat chronic pain with an effective non-surgical approach. Go back and listen to programs number 926 and 933 to get the background and additional information.
This podcast follows up on a previous podcast that was trashed by the Internet. Go back and look at it now/ it is SYM #931 (May 15, 2002)
I continue this discussion and we talk about some important spiritual concepts such as love and meaning.. We talk about the basic underlying cause of addictions being low self-esteem.
My guest today, John Smith, tells his story about how he was convicted of fraud in the S&L scandals back in the 80s even though he had done absolutely nothing wrong. We talk about various aspects of the case. His book is a very good read and tells about the criminal justice system and some of the things that they do that you might find hard to believe. I tell my back story of how I was convicted by the federal government on a charge of attempted bribery even though I was totally innocent also. These two stories from actual history bring up the question: Could you be sentenced to prison or jail for something you didn't do? How likely is that?. You will find this podcast extremely interesting.
This educational podcast will describe the characteristics, times, and dates of the various pandemics that have hit the world over the course of recordable history.
My guest today is Irene O'Garden and we talk about her book, "Glad to Be Human." In a world filled with distressing news on a daily basis, we can't control pandemics or protests, but we can control what we focus on and the joy we get from the little things in life. Irene has slightly less than 50 wonderful essays in this book and she reads a couple including "Glad to Be Human," for which she won the "Pushcart" prize. This is a wonderful book if you like to read inspiring essays.
Our guest today is Joffre McClung, a personal growth author, self-love teacher, and a common sense activist. She looks at today's societal anger and blame as a cry for help. She feels if it is left unanswered, it will only grow in its intensity negatively impacting not only the quality of our personal daily lives but our society as a whole. We discussed the need for more self-love and how our lives will change if we accomplish it.
My guess today Dr. Joseph Luciani will be discussing how to unlearn anxiety and depression. He has a self-coaching technique called "Mind-Talk," and discusses four tracks in the program which are separating facts from fiction, stopping insecurity driven thinking, responsive living, and motivation. The title of his book is "Unlearning anxiety & depression: The four-step self-coaching program to reclaim your life ," which is available on Amazon. Get his special report: COVID-19 Doesn't own your mind, by requesting it at email@example.com. It's free.
