Episode #287 - You can beat whatever is plaguing you

Episode #287 - You can beat whatever is plaguing you

After being thrown out of a Las Vegas hotel in a drunken haze, jeopardizing his career and relationships, Nick Klingensmith had to make a change. A 4-time cancer survivor, type-1 diabetic, and recovering alcoholic with 4 herniated discs, nerve damage, and sleep apnea, he defies it all when he finds Obstacle Course Racing. Refusing to accept his circumstances, he finishes numerous obstacle races, the Boston and Chicago Marathons, and the Spartan Ultra, culminating in 127 miles of endurance racing in 6 weeks. This isn’t just a story about a drunk, diabetic cancer patient who overcomes adversity to become a mediocre, middle-aged athlete. His story focuses less on physical achievements and more on his mental and spiritual approach to overcoming life’s challenges. Nick is a raw and passionate storyteller who holds nothing back when revealing who he used to be and the person he is now. The circumstances he faces show others that they are not alone and that they too can defy their limitations.

Episode #281 - How do you define living life?

Episode #281 - How do you define living life?

Helping me answer that question and to speak about all things health-related is Jen Beck!

If you are ready to experience love for your body and make food your friend again, I am your gal! My name is Jen Beck and for the last 15+ years, I have worked with clients dealing with chronic conditions to folks that have struggled with their weight their entire lives, and across all age spectrums from kids to 80-year-olds – so I know no 2 bodies are alike, nor are their issues the same. Most people struggle to make sense of all the so-called expert advice out there.

It breaks my heart to see people fail through 15 different diets, suffer through knee surgeries, wake up feeling like crap, and go through life believing “This is as good as it gets”… and I see this with people in their 30s! I was just like that, and I turned it around. I can help you figure out exactly what you need and how to make it work within your busy lifestyle! I will be your guide, cheerleader, and support along your journey to find what your body needs specifically for you to feel fantastic, so you can fall in love with your food, body, and life again.

I swore in my 20s that I would do whatever it takes to make it so that no family had to endure what we did. I have been on a mission ever since! In my 20’s, I was living on coffee, Diet Mountain Dew, sugar, and convenience foods. I was dragging through the day, getting sick a couple of times a year and just not feeling awesome, but I had no idea how bad it had gotten because my health had declined so gradually I hadn’t noticed. Then I got a wake-up call! I was 26, standing in my mom’s living room watching her entire life being sorted through as she was being packed up to move into a nursing home at 49 years old! Through research, I found that with a different lifestyle, this situation may have been completely avoidable, or at least delayed by many, many years. I saw people reverse disease, and reclaim their health from “terminal” and chronic diseases that I had previously believed were life sentences.

Welcome back to our podcast! We're excited to have Emily Thiroux Threatt returning to the show. Emily has gone through the experience of losing two husbands, as well as the deaths of several family members and friends.

Her book is a comprehensive guide that offers practical advice and tools for reclaiming joy and carrying on in the face of loss.

Joining the show today is Angela Legh!

I lived through much adversity; and as it is said, what didn't kill me made me stronger. I had an abusive, alcoholic father whose behavior had a major impact on my life. Based on his behavior, my young mind decided that rage was an emotion no one should feel. My judgment of anyone who became enraged did not serve me well in my first marriage, nor in my life.

A wildfire destroyed our home . . . that was the catalyst for significant change in my life. Over 12 months, I lost my home to fire, left my marriage, quit my job, and moved across the world. During this journey, I discovered many tools for overcoming adversity and achieving emotional balance. I now share these tools with children through the power of story; because with this knowledge, they can make better life choices.

Episode #239 - How to break free from the pain of sexual abuse

Joining the show is Rachel Grant!  In her words...

I want to put a stop to survivors of abuse feeling broken, unfixable, and absolutely frustrated because it seems nothing they do is helping. Honestly, it really pisses me off when survivors are not able to have the lives and relationships they deserve. Whenever I hear stories of survivors giving up, falling deeper and deeper into despair, or worse, being further traumatized by people who are supposed to help, I get so upset. It also reminds me of my past and how excruciating life was for twenty-plus years.

I was definitely convinced that there was no way out of the pain, constant instability, and feeling of worthlessness. It sucked, but I found a way out and I would love to support you in doing that as well.

With hope,
