Carol and Corinne went to unique health conference last week: International College of Integrative Medicine on Ending Pain, and kept saying “We wish our audience could hear this”. The information and some of the statistics were astounding:

31% of adults come into doctors office complaining of fatigue.
25% come in relation to pain
30% come into office for anxiety and depression

Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum, author of Three Steps to Happiness, joins Corinne and Carol to discuss the pursuit of happiness.

Happiness is our natural state of being. It is obvious when you look at little children before they take on society’s beliefs. Their natural state is to feel all of their feelings without resistance, leaving them free to spend most of their time being happy and playful. By applying Dr. Teitelbaum’s simple three-step principles in this book, you can develop the ability to be happy whenever you choose!

Learn to to implement these three steps, and how to handle stress, fear and adrenal issues.

This episode starts with a recap and discussion of the spectrum of opinions on last week’s episode on saturated fat and disease.

Corinne and Carol discuss sweeteners, sugar and diet impact on genes. Poor eating can amplify genetic effects of sugar that switches off genes that help control diabetes and heart disease.

Corinne Furnari and Carol Petersen interview Jeffery Smith and discuss benefits and health risks of genetically modified foods as well as choosing healthy non-GMO alternatives.

Jeffery Smith is the author of Seeds of Deceptionand Genetic Roulette, both linking genetically engineered foods to toxic and allergic reactions, infertility, digestive problems and numerous health disorders that have been on the rise since genetically modified organisms (GMO) have been introduced.

Hormones can effect brain function and mood. Depression that isn’t effectively treated with talk therapy can often be quickly turned around by balancing hormones. Discussion with Dr Moshe Dekel and Carol Petersen RPh, CNP on how hormones effect both men and women.

Robin Williams remembered, in this episode dedicated to depression.

You treat a disease, you win, you lose. You treat a person, I guarantee you’ll win no matter what the outcome.

Why We Get Fat CoverThis is a lively encore interview with Gary Taubes author of Why We Get Fat, Times best seller Good Calories, Bad Calories, and science writer. This interview is an eye-opening, paradigm-shattering examination of what makes us fat.

Taubes reveals the bad nutritional science of the last century—none more damaging than the “calories-in, calories-out” model of why we get fat—and the good science that has been ignored, especially regarding insulin’s regulation of our fat tissue. He also answers key questions: Why are some people thin and others fat? What roles do exercise and genetics play in our weight? What foods should we eat or avoid?
