Learn from one of the few triple board-certified physicians in our country in today’s special episode! In this fascinating conversation with Dr. Zach Bush, we learn about the impact of chemical farming on human consciousness, what a “leaky gut” really is, and how we can eat in a way that decreases our risk of cancer and other chronic illnesses. Dr. Bush covers actionable steps we can take now to reconnect to mother nature, explains why there’s no such things as “good” and “bad” bacteria, and why the gut microbiome is what’s triggering so many people to turn to yoga, meditation, and spiritual practice as part of their healing. Don’t miss the magic blend of spirit and science in this episode!

 

Zach Bush MD is one of the few triple board-certified physicians in the country, with expertise in Internal Medicine, Endocrinology and Metabolism, and Hospice/Palliative care. In 2012 he discovered a family of carbon-based redox molecules made by bacteria, and his team has subsequently demonstrated that this cellular communication network functions as an antidote to glyphosate, and many other dietary, chemical, and pharmaceutical toxins that disrupt our body's natural defense systems. This science has resulted in a revolutionary class of dietary supplements, including the product RESTORE.

Are you considering yoga teacher training to deepen your yoga practice? Do you dream of making yoga your fulltime career? Or are you currently teaching and struggling? If any of the above describes you, this week’s episode is a must-listen. I sit down with Youtube yogini Lesley Fightmaster, who teaches to an audience of over 300K dedicated subscribers online. She shares with us her courageous story of how she went from broke, struggling to take care of her family, to finally achieving success doing what she loves. At the end of the episode, Lesley shares with us how she stays grounded as a busy, successful teacher – from what exact crystals she has on her altar to how she integrates cards and Tarot into her personal practice. 

 

Lesley leads a breath-focused, alignment based class that combines a deep love of movement with the practice of yoga. She’s a certified instructor registered with Yoga Alliance and earned her 200-hour certificate through YogaWorks in 2006 and went on to complete her 300-hour training to become E-RYT 500 certified.
