How Humans Heal

In today’s podcast we talk about the topic of narcissism. Narcissism as an overall concept and term can be used in many ways, including to describe personality traits of being excessively admiring of oneself, someone who might be self-centered or selfish or only thinking of themselves, so much so that they feel a sense of entitlement.    As we talk about narcissism, we need to distinguish it from a healthy sense of self prioritization and self-care. I talk about self-care a lot in my new book and in myself care program. It's all about how we take better care of ourselves in terms...

How Humans Heal

In this episode we talk about stress and how to recover from it.   First, we must acknowledge that being human involves exposure to stress!    Research shows that over 60% of us had an adverse childhood event and at least 70% of us have experienced a major stress loss or trauma in adulthood.    When we exist as humans in these stressful environments it starts to feel normal to be stressed.     In fact, we can become addicted to feeling stressed and so we get stuck in stress mode. Our bodies’ cortisol and adrenaline levels get imbalanced, and our...

#122 Supplements And The Highly Sensitive Person with Dr. Doni! show art #122 Supplements And The Highly Sensitive Person with Dr. Doni!

How Humans Heal

I consider myself to be a highly sensitive person – both in terms of my nervous system and in terms of how I respond to changes and substances.     I didn’t learn about being a highly sensitive person in medical school, however in the 1990s two psychologists – Elaine Aron and Arthur Aron – wrote a book called “The Highly Sensitive Person” in which they defined what it is to have a more sensitive emotional response to what is happening around us.    I have identified a somewhat different version of a highly sensitive person, and as far as I know, I’ve not...

#120 Solving the Mystery of Leaky Gut with Dr. Doni! show art #120 Solving the Mystery of Leaky Gut with Dr. Doni!

How Humans Heal

I’ve been talking about leaky gut since about 2002. At the time, I was experiencing severe migraines, and my daughter (whom I was breastfeeding) had severe colic. That’s when I figured out that I had leaky gut, and I had to find a way to help us both. I tried every kind of food panel and diet change, and experienced minimal benefits, until I found a lab that ran a highly accurate IgA and IgG panel and saw that I was reacting to many of the foods I ate. One of the most common misconceptions is that there is something wrong with the food panel, but that is far from the truth. The truth –...

More Episodes

In this episode of How Humans Heal I introduce myself and how I became interested in nutrition, naturopathic medicine, women’s health, and stress.  

 

Ultimately, more than 90% of health issues are caused by stress.  

 

If we want to be living longer and maintaining the highest quality of life, we need to be doing everything we can to counteract the effects of stress on our body, mind, and spirit.  

 

It was what I learned from women in labor that helped me define my theory of how to help humans recover from stress, and eventually to identify my Stress Recovery Protocol.  

 

Then I moved to Manhattan, right after 9/11, one of the most stressful times in the history of New York.  

 

My curious mind went to work figuring out how stress was affecting my patients and myself, so that I could then reverse the effects of stress to restore health.  

 

I started measuring cortisol levels throughout the day, as well as adrenaline levels and neurotransmitter levels. These tests had just become available (not in NY, but in CT), so I opened a practice in Connecticut and started reading every study I could find about how cortisol affects us and what we can use to get it back to optimal.  

 

It was a long process of trial and error, learning from my patients, adjusting my protocol, and continuing to learn while also lecturing around the country and internationally about how to help humans restore healthy cortisol, neurotransmitters, gut health, methylation, mitochondrial function, and hormones.   

 

I started writing about my findings starting way back then, which lead to my first book – The Stress Remedy. I went on to write four more books about stress recovery including my latest book – Master Your Stress Reset Your Health.  

 

Essentially, I found over and over again that we can do what is considered impossible, reversing health issues that were not considered reversible, using my protocol.  

 

When we achieve optimal cortisol and adrenaline, we reset the effect of stress on our system.  

 

Most people walk around thinking it is about surviving while imbalanced by stress. Instead, I’m saying, no, you can rebalance and recover from the effects of stress and in doing so, change your health and extend your life.  

 

 

You see why I’m so obsessed with stress? It is the key to our health when we learn how to support ourselves through the stress we experience as humans.  

 

Now I help men, women, and children AROUND THE WORLD to implement my approach.  

 

I’ll continue with my research of stress recovery activities and teaching patients and practitioners how to implement my Stress Recovery Protocol, which doesn’t exist anywhere else because it was developed by me.  

 

If you are ready to get your cortisol and adrenaline to optimal and reset from stress, reach out. I’m here to guide you.
