Beyond Belief & Loving Kindness

In this special podcast, Rob chatted with Dr. Andrew Litchy, ND from the Bhakti Wellness Center and Michelle Ploog about the ties between our own inner peace have to those around us as well as to our health.

Dr. Litchy expanded on our recent show on Loving Kindness Meditation and the role taking care of ourselves plays in our interactions with those around us while Michelle talked about the ideas behind the upcoming Beyond Belief Walk for Peace and the how starting with our own inner peace can grow to bring a healthy awareness to the world around us.

Our discussion highlighted how health is more than just about taking care of our bodies, that it is also encompasses the mind and spirit… be it addressing stress or emotional eating.

Be sure to visit our Events Calendar for more information on the meditation workshops held by Dr. Litchy, and join Michelle and others at the Mall of America on Saturday, November 16 for the Beyond Belief Walk for Peace, and you can learn more about Michelle at her website.

Food Allergies

Today we talked with Dr. Allan Stillerman of Allergy & Asthma Specialists (with locations in Minneapolis, Maple Grove and Plymouth) about Food Allergies. We chatted about just what an allergy is, what it isn’t, how prevalent they are, the top food allergies, how they are diagnosed and what are some of the treatment options out there.

We were also joined by Missy Berggren. Missy is a mother of a young child with a food allergy and we got a chance to hear from her about the first time she had to treat her child using an EpiPen.

This was the first of what we hope is a series of shows examining the issues facing parents of children with food allergies – stay tuned for details on upcoming shows.

We would like to thank the folks at EpiCenter Medical – they have provided 10 passes to their online training course on Anaphylaxis Rescuer first aid courses from epipentraining.com, which teaches the care that should be given before and during transportation to the hospital, care which saves lives. You complete the course on your own computer, and it takes about one hour.

We gave some of them to listeners that called in during the show, but we have others still to give away and will be doing an online sweepstakes for them.
