  • If you could stop aging and possibly reverse it, would you?

    To grow old is widely accepted as normal, we have seen our parents and grandparents grow old, so we assumed that was the natural order of things, but new research is forcing us to look at aging as a disease that needs treatment. Before you get all defensive about the natural order of things, I would like to introduce you to my guest on this episode of Growth Island Dr. Nichola Conlon.

    Dr. Conlon has a PhD in molecular biology at the Epithelial Research Group at Newcastle University, she is the founder of Nuchido a supplement company with the aim to translate the latest scientific advances in ageing research into consumer products that slow, and even reverse, the signs and processes of ageing.

    Over recent years, rejuvenation has been scientifically proven, but the pace of these discoveries is far ahead of public awareness. Nuchido’s mission is to bring to market science-based anti-ageing products that really work. Their products focus on promoting 'healthspan'โ€‹ - the proportion of a person's life that is lived in good health.

    In this episode we discuss:
    ๐Ÿ‘‰ Why Dr. Conlon does what she does in the sphere of ageing
    ๐Ÿ‘‰ The growth of the longevity industry
    ๐Ÿ‘‰ What is Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) and its effects
    ๐Ÿ‘‰ The difference between NAD+ and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) + hydrogen (H) (NADH)
    ๐Ÿ‘‰ How NAD works in the body
    ๐Ÿ‘‰ Natural ways of boosting NAD
    ๐Ÿ‘‰ Dr. Conlon’s company Nuchido
    ๐Ÿ‘‰ The studies backing Dr. Conlon’s work
    ๐Ÿ‘‰ How often does one need to take NAD treatments and when is the right time to start
    ๐Ÿ‘‰ The current obstacles faced by the industry
    ๐Ÿ‘‰ What is the driving factor behind the cost of NAD treatment

    If you are looking to increase your longevity and have a more optimal healthy lifespan, then you need to listen to this episode and share it with your friends and family.

  • What if I told you you can repair your mind from past trauma?

    We usually hear of people coping with trauma never fixing it, well it came as a surprise to me as well when my guest in this episode shared that it's not only possible but he has centered his work around that very topic, Dr. Don Wood has a PhD in clinical, counseling & applied psychology and has developed the Inspired Performance Institute after spending years researching how trauma affects our minds and our lives.

    Dr. Wood began to understand that events and experiences throughout our lifetime continue to play a role in how we experience life in the present. He also realized that there was a better way of treating the issue.

    “Teaching people to live with, manage and cope with daily stress doesn’t fix the problem. The solution comes from understanding it’s source and providing a long-term permanent solution”.

    Dr. Wood has written two books about his research including the science about how our minds work and why we experience our own unique perspective of the world. Both books are focused on how we can all make the desired changes by allowing our mind to reset and reboot.

    In this episode we discuss:
    ๐Ÿ‘‰ How trauma affects humans
    ๐Ÿ‘‰ How to fix trauma
    ๐Ÿ‘‰ Beta brain waves vs alpha brain waves
    ๐Ÿ‘‰ Understanding the root causes of addiction & self-harm
    ๐Ÿ‘‰ How to best coupe with trauma
    ๐Ÿ‘‰ And much more!

    If you want to better understand your trauma or of someone you love, this episode will help guide you to that understanding.

While bad bacteria cause tooth decay and gum disease, both modern dental “hygiene” (which has for decades been blasting our mouths with “germ-killing” toothpastes and mouthwashes) and our modern lifestyles (carb-and-sugar-heavy diets and stress) can decimate our mouth ecology. but what oral care products you use have a huge effect on your microbiome and your health in general.

She created natural products to biohack your dental health for stronger, cleaner, whiter teeth and improved overall health and is a sought-after oral wellness speaker. She is the author of the book “Beauty’s Dirty Secret” an international bestseller

    ๐Ÿ‘‰ Too much sterilization is actually bad for you
    ๐Ÿ‘‰ What are the dangerous ingredients in everyday oral care products to watch out for
    ๐Ÿ‘‰ Traditional oral practices that are actually harming you
    ๐Ÿ‘‰ The effectiveness of light therapy for your dental health
