Having a healthy body is imperative to living a happy and productive life, but it’s not just the body that needs to be maintained. In the third episode, Ms. Shaw delves into the brain’s health with Dr. Patrick Porter, the creator of Brain Tap, a brain fitness company. Dr. Porter’s research supports the view that the brain is elastic and can indeed change and grow. Unlike earlier beliefs, the brain does not have a set number of brain cells, and we can certainly train the brain to become more efficient as we age. Ms. Shaw has always been interested in how to keep her
brain healthy and increase cognition and firmly believes that having a healthy brain is part of having a healthy body. In this profound and enlightening episode, they discuss how to improve cognition and brain health, and delve into Alzheimer’s and dementia. They discuss how Brain Tap can replace opioid use and reduce pain.
Many times, we ingest harmful products that hinder our health. But there are also harmful environmental factors from which we need protection. In episode four, Ms. Shaw talks with Marty Grosjean, founder of Life Harmony Energies, about protecting ourselves from harmful rays and EMFs – electromagnetic fields – or radiation. Public concerns about the safety of these rays are increasing, and numerous studies conclude these rays are hazardous. EMF side effects could include headaches, loss of sleep, and, in extreme cases, brain cancer. Unfortunately, we are all exposed to these dangerous rays because these fields surround us, even if we don’t use a wireless phone. Mr. Grosjean and Ms. Shaw discuss where to get EMF protection products and how to get a coupon code for 10 percent savings. The show ends positively with Iggy Rodriguez talking about wearable products from Hapbee. These products use a low frequency to enhance or augment one’s center of being. Hapbee helps to increase positive feelings, such as happiness, pain relief, or recovery, without using substances like caffeine, alcohol, or other compounds. Once the product is removed, the body returns to a baseline within 5 minutes. While the product can help alter brain waves, it does not create additional vitamins or other nutrients. But it can be used for recovery, and they talk in length about this.
As the CEO of YogaFit, Ms. Shaw helps people develop healthy bodies and healthy minds. She gives them the tools and resources they need to create a healthy body for themselves, and if they desire, they can train to teach others how to live the YogaFit life. In her fifth episode, Ms. Shaw talks with Rachel Levy about Imago Therapy, a type of relationship therapy centered around healthy love and healthy relationships with others and ourselves.

Over 2 million people in the United States are addicted to opioids. The opioid crisis in America is ruining people’s lives, destroying families, and is costing the country over half a trillion dollars in lost productivity. Ms. Shaw talks with Dr. Joseph Balbacheli in episode seven about the signs of opioid dependency and how to tell if your prescriptions are causing a dangerous dependence. Dr. Joseph explains addiction and withdrawal and the deadly impact of the opioid crisis. Last year over 100,000 people died from an overdose, most from opioids, specifically fentanyl.
Prescription drugs are not the whole problem, but they are undoubtedly a significant contributor. Fentanyl is all over the news nowadays, but what is it exactly? Ms. Shaw and Dr. Joseph explain it and discuss breaking addiction and remaining sober.
