Dr. Megan Saunders

Dr. Megan Saunders returns to Learn True Health to discuss a very important part of our health: Sleep.  “Sleep is not a luxury, it is a requirement.” The four foundations of health are good nutrition, a healthy emotional state (feeling fulfilled), exercising the body, and getting good sleep.

Sometimes stress gets the better of you and keeps you awake. Dr. Megan says you need to process the stress of anger or depression in a way that’s appropriate.

It doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t get angry about something, but if it’s an emotion that you are unable to process and it’s keeping you up at night, then that should be addressed.

It’s understandable that parents who also have careers, for instance, stay up late because they want personal time to themselves to watch TV or read a book. But if we do that consistently we are stealing snooze time from ourselves.

Crucial

Dr. Megan describes the processes performed by the body while we’re asleep, all of which are crucial to our health when we are awake.  People who have difficulty falling asleep have different health issues than those who fall asleep easily but wake after a few hours and can’t fall asleep again.

After listening to this podcast you will undoubtedly want to learn more about how you can obtain a restful sleep, night after night.

At learntruehealth.com you will find videos on sleep and a new film featuring a yogi demonstrating meditation and breathing techniques that will enhance your night’s rest.

Here’s What You’ll Discover:

Your cat sleeping next to you in bed may be the reason you can’t sleep.

Dr. Heidi Semanie

This Learn True Health episode features Dr. Heidi Semanie, who, after the following experience, obtained her Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University.  She also has a B.S. in Biological Science with minor degrees in English and Anthropology.

No level of education, no number of degrees could have prepared her for her extremely challenging three months as a paramedic in the horrific aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.  She describes the magnitude of work, of need, of the devastation she saw.

It was like a war zone with looting and police escorts. Imagine seeing a bathtub in a tree, houses piled on top of each other, dead bodies that you must remove from the raging river.

Before this experience Dr. Semanie had wanted to become a trauma surgeon, but having seen what she saw, having been so intimately involved, “I just thought that I didn’t want to be the person somebody saw once a year to check in.  I wanted to be somebody who could be on the ground, helping, hands-on.”

Dr. Semanie describes her student years at Bastyr University.  She made some life-changing discoveries that will encourage Learn True Health listeners to reach for the stars in their quest for excellence.

Here’s What You’ll Discover:

  • How to make your experiences become a positive predictor of your future calling.
  • How to listen for the whisper so you don’t get hit by the cosmic 2 by 4!
  • What it’s like to witness the aftermath of a natural disaster and how to survive the experience in a positive way.
  • How to listen to the Universe so that life sets you up to succeed.

Health AH-HA Moment:

The Four Agreements are:

1. Sleep

2. Water

3. Food

4. Emotional Connection with Loved Ones.

Your Challenge:

  • You need to be healthy yourself before you can help anyone else.
  • Always listen to your intuition.
  • After hearing Dr. Semanie’s choices, decide what 3 items from a supplements store you would want to have on a tropical desert island.
  • Spend the next week being honest with yourself.  Discover what stories you tell yourself that keep you from your intended goals, e.g. “I’ll just have this one chocolate because I need the sugar.”

Dr. Megan Saunders

In this episode of the Learn True Health podcast Dr. Megan Saunders joins us to discuss holistic thinking and how it can affect us as individuals and as businesses. Dr. Megan has a unique perspective as a physician because before she went to medical school she specialized in international business and entrepreneurship.

Before she became a physician, Megan, as a business student, saw the long-term consequences that would harm businesses if they didn’t think holistically in the short term. Businesses that would penny pinch around their choices in materials and healthcare for their employees, for example, would see fewer repeat customers and higher employee turnaround.

Likewise, businesses that would invest in the healthcare and wellbeing of their employees, quality building materials, and the environment, saw long term growth and sustainability with less employee turnaround.

“…That has been my experience as a physician, looking at the long-term consequences of our actions. Having all of your actions being in alignment with the long-term goals of health. And so what is health? Physically, we need to be putting clean food, clean water, clean air into our bodies. We don’t want any sort of toxic exposures…”

Dr. Megan goes on to highlight what else we can do as individuals to stay on the path to long-term sustainable health and she brings up some fascinating points!

Here’s What You’ll Discover:

  • How holistic medicine can make you more profitable if you are an employer / business owner.
  • What an “obesogen” is and why you need to know about them!
  • A way of thinking that will empower you to gain control of your health.
  • A new way of comparing Medical Doctors to a Naturopathic Doctors.
  • “Organic” doesn’t mean healthy but there is a compelling reason why you should still eat organic anyway.

Health AH-HA Moment:

Corner-cutting in the short term causes long term health issues. Making small, manageable changes now will make a big difference down the road!

Your Challenge:

  • Look at where you are cutting corners to save time or money around your health. Cutting corners in the short term leads to downfalls in the long run.
  • An example of cutting a corner around our health because of time constraints is going out for fast food instead of preparing home cooked organic meals.
  • A solution would be to make a plan that helps you avoid cutting those corners, such as spending Sunday evening cooking your organic meals for the week.
  • For those whose corner-cutting is due to their budget, try researching where you can find affordable organic produce, such as Costco or Grocery Outlet.
  • In the long run, making these simple changes will decrease the toxic load on your body, which leads to disease and has been linked to obesity, cancer and hormone issues.
