Improving the Quality of Your Life through EFT and Tapping
I'm always on the lookout for ways to improve the quality of my life, and I feel after this podcast chat that I have a new tool in my quality life toolbox. My guest, Ann Hince, spiritual teacher, public speaker, and author, explains how she changed the direction of her life through the process of Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), also known as tapping.  Tune in to learn this very simple technique that you can start using immediately as I have! About Ann Hince: Ann has developed the ability to sense inside her body, and release physical tension stored in her connective tissue, using solely the focus of her mind. She has x-rays to show the physical changes resulting from this inner work - including changing the alignment of her eye sockets, the straightening of her neck, the centering of her lower jaw, and the growth of her tooth roots.Ann wants us all to know that we have this incredible power within us, it just takes going further with practices that you may already be doing.As many of you may know, changing what is on our inside, changes what we see on the outside, so it is Ann's belief that we can not only change our personal world, but also our collective world.Ann has a YouTube channel where she shares her journey, explains the connection between the physical and the spiritual, and will be posting videos of how to change the pressing issues of our time. Her book, A Pathway to Insight, details her journey and breaks down the steps she took to attain what she calls Insight, or the ability to see within the body.Connect with Ann Hince: Time Stamps: 0:00 Intro14:24 Welcome Ann Hince1:57 Defining moment to self-healing3:04 EFT technique5:15 Self-awareness is key6:52 Learning about EFT and tapping8:56 Becoming aware of how we feel13:06 Similarities to acupressure/acupuncture13:48 Letting go of stored emotions17:15 When we fully accept something, it’s debilitating features  dissipate20:07 Using the law of attraction23:10 Don’t aim for positive thinking to eliminate truth26:20 Changing physical through EFT31:10 Wrap up

Hacking Your Nutritional Approach to Health
Nutrition has the power to positively affect our lives. One of the most profound areas where this can occur is in the process of cancer treatment. Nutrition, in concert with traditional medical interventions, can help make cancer therapies more effective to increase chances of survival. In this episode of Curves Welcome podcast, I chat with Martha Tettenborn, RD about hacking chemo using "the ketogenic diet, therapeutic fasting, and a kickass attitude to power through cancer."

Cancer cells need it, unable to grow and multiply without a steady supply of glucose. But after a cancer diagnosis, medical and dietary recommendations from oncology doctors often result in increased blood sugar and insulin levels—the essential elements that cancer cells need to thrive.In Hacking Chemo, Registered Dietitian and cancer survivor Martha Tettenborn uncovers the secrets of cancer metabolism, offering a refreshing new way of treating the disease with minimal side effects and maximum effectiveness. Cancer treatment like chemotherapy doesn’t have to derail your life. You can be your own bio-hacker by decoding how cancer works in your body…and your life.

This led her to develop and use a protocol of ketogenic diet with targeted therapeutic fasting to significantly impact her response to chemotherapy. Inspired by her own journey, Martha wants to help others see cancer differently – as an experience that will give you strength, wisdom, and more love for your body and life than ever before.A featured speaker at the Low Carb Long Weekend Summit and on numerous podcasts, Martha shares her knowledge as a dietitian and experience as a cancer patient to inform others about the power of metabolic interventions to support conventional cancer treatment. Martha also instructs courses teaching the ketogenic approach to cancer treatment for the Nutrition Network and Udemy.A cancer survivor since 2018, Martha is an avid hiker, cyclist, live theatre backstage crew member and a wannabe world adventurer.

Life Lessons from the Dojo to Apply to Everyday Living
Jan 28 2021
Life Lessons from the Dojo to Apply to Everyday Living
When I was in my late twenties, the last thing I ever imagined I’d do is walk through the doors of a dojo and sign on the dotted line to become a karate student. But destiny called me towards those doors and into a place I’d soon come to call my second home. I use the word destiny loosely here because I’m not sure many people might refer to a close call with a criminal in an alleyway a call to destiny. But I needed skills and confidence, and the dojo appeared when I needed it. To me that’s the definition of destiny. Mentors come in all forms. Mine just happened to come wearing a fifth degree blackbelt and a can-do attitude that told me everything was going to be okay. No criminal was ever going to get the best of me again, if I could help it. And I believe my mentor would say the same still to this day.My mentor Sensei Carlos taught me three very important life lessons that I carry with me to this day some twenty years later. And I’m able to still carry them because I was open and eager to soak up his knowledge. He was living his life the way I wanted to – with a healthy respect for self-control and how it can serve us when we find ourselves in perilous situations. SUBSCRIBE!
