TMHS 078: How Taboos Control Your Life: Your Teeth, Your Clothes, Your Sexual Desires & More – With Daniel Vitalis

It’s even taboo to talk about taboos. Even though we may not realize it, our social taboos are able to keep us imprisoned within our own minds.

Don’t you want to know what invisible forces are governing the way you think, feel, and function on a daily basis? Don’t you want to know why you do what you do?

Well, even if you did, it’s very difficult to find out what they are because they are usually a “blind spot” in our consciousness.

I’m not talking about science fiction, and Neo waking up from a dream within The Matrix. I’m talking about science fact, and how our perception of reality is largely governed by beliefs that we never got to choose ourselves. Could your faulty beliefs be causing you to struggle and fail repeatedly in your life?

This is where a teacher like Daniel Vitalis come in…

Our Roots. Our Planet. Our Future. ~The Origins Movie With Dr. Pedram Shojai

It’s pretty clear that we have changed. Only a few generations ago, chronic illnesses like heart disease, cancer, and diabetes were seen in only a small percentage of the population. Today, some statistics show that more than three-fourths of the western world are afflicted with one of these major illnesses. The question is…

How did this happen?

We are so much more advanced in our technology, but, collectively, we are in the Stone Age when it comes to the health and vitality of our bodies. As a matter of fact, our Stone Age ancestors had this dialed in better than we do. Images of Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble do not give our origins justice… I’m pretty sure no one has ever eaten a brontosaurus burger, but I’ve seen plenty of people eat Double Whoppers.

Natural Treatments For Depression

TMHS 076: Natural Treatments For Depression – Share This With Everyone You Know!

Play

It may be jarring to know that seven out of 10 people in the U.S. have been prescribed a drug over the past year. It may be more surprising to know that one out of every 10 people are now taking an antidepressant; among women in their 40′s and 50′s, that number is one in four.

The rates of depression have skyrocketed over the last two decades, and the trend is steadily rising. Many experts believe that this is due to a myriad of reasons, but the go-to treatment for practitioners thus far have been SSRIs and other antidepressant drugs.

Though depression is a very real and substantial issue, more and more data is coming forth that physicians are moving too quickly to medication. A study published in the journal Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics found that nearly two-thirds of the patients who had been given a diagnosis of depression within the previous 12 months did not meet the criteria for clinical depression as described by the psychiatrists’ bible.

Since it’s inception, the movie industry has heavily influenced the behavior of our culture. Most notably, Hollywood is unmatched at setting the bar for how we strive towards our health and fitness goals.

What guy wouldn’t want to swipe the look of Hugh Jackman in X-Men: Days of Future Past? (Minus the bushy sideburns, of course). Chris Evans, Jason Statham, Brad Pitt, and Mark Wahlberg are some notable names that have guys around the world rushing to the gym after a new movie comes out.

For the ladies, Jennifer Lopez, Halle Berry, Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Biel and many others have inspired women to take their health and fitness more seriously. The interesting thing is that these Hollywood figures, who most people have never actually met, are far more influential than any family member who’s preaching to you to get in shape.

Hollywood motivates us. It is what it is.

Now, this has given birth to the concept of the “Celebrity Trainer”. The individual trusted with the responsibility to bring out the physical best of the people who we all aspire to be like. Considering that it’s accomplished in a health-giving manner (there are probably more PEDs in Hollywood than in professional sports fyi) these celebrity trainers are often the cream of the crop, and known for getting great results. That’s where Vinnie Tortorich comes in…

5 tips to overcome any obstacle

TMHS 074: 5 Tips To Overcome Any Obstacle You’re Faced With – Get Better Health, Finances, Relationships, And More!

Play

True wisdom is learning to become friendly with obstacles. Challenges, problems, and unexpected obstacles are all inherent in the development of a human being.

We can choose to tussle with them a bit, complain about them constantly, or we can find a way to break through them. Consistently looking for the challenge, and knowing that you have everything you need within you to overcome it, is part of long-term happiness and fulfillment.

The reality is that many people retreat when they are faced with challenges they think are beyond them. Tail between the legs, white flag; the whole nine yards to show they have given up. We have to come to a conclusion at some point that the challenges in our lives aren’t there to break us, they are actually there to develop us in ways that we never knew were possible before.
