Episode Description

Part 1- Personal reflections on the practice of meditation and mindfulness, and the value that this adds not only in health wellness, but in all chronic disease, especially mental disease and chronic pain. Part 2- An overview of CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), the relationships and the inevitable interactions between our thoughts, behaviors and mood. How gaining better control over out thinking patterns can reduce our daily stress levels and the potential for self-sabotage of our recovery efforts.

The podcast focuses on health rather than disease. The conversation centers on resilience and epigenetics, the study of how other factors like behaviors and environment can influence gene expression. It also highlights daily healthful behaviors and techniques that may reduce the progression and facilitate recovery from chronic physical and mental diseases including chronic pain, addictions and trauma.

Lastly, it highlights helpful usable technologies as well as education on current trending medical delivery issues such as over-investigation and over-diagnosis. The aim is to encourage and educate you to take a more active and holistic approach to your own wellbeing.

Healthscape can be heard Wednesdays at 12 Noon Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Health and Wellness Channel.
