Lucas Wolfe: CBT and His Book “My Perfect Life” (SECOND APPEARENCE) #043
There is nothing better than bringing an old guest back on to see what they’re working on now! Lucas Wolfe, who was our guest for episode #017, has recently published a book called “My Perfect Life: How Depression Almost Ended It And How I Found Purpose Through Pain.” In this book, he chronicles his journey with mental health issues (starting all the way back in high school), to where he is at today (now in his late 20’s). During this episode, we took a pretty interesting route and focused on something Lucas believes was very important in learning to manage his mental health challenges. What is it you may ask? Cognitive behavioral therapy! Check out this episode for some great insights from a great guy! And, as always, let us know what you thought :). You can check out Lucas’ book here: https://www.amazon.com/My-Perfect-Life-Depression-Purpose/dp/B08FBNGF2F/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=my+perfect+life+by+lucas+wolfe&qid=1599600217&sr=8-1

In this episode, we interview Dayna Altman, who was a guest wayyy back on episode #14!  Dayna is the definition of an entrepreneur on a mission.

1 Year Sober - Why I Did It, What It Was Like, And Where I'll Go From Here #040
This past year was a super interesting experience. I did something that I thought would be at least somewhat challenging, but honestly, it wasn't bad at all. It made a million questions go through my head, some specific to actual drug abuse, and some much broader.  I do know one thing... If you're someone who has thought about giving a challenge like this a try, I say go for it. I certainly don't see how any bad could come from it! Also, I'd REALLY love feedback from this episode if possible, perhaps even more so than normal. It'll make more sense once you listen to the episode. Thank you as always for your support. This ESPECIALLY goes out to my amazing friends and family who did not blink and eye when I told them about my decision to try the fully-sober life.

Dr. Josh Friedman - When A Doctorate In Psychology From NYU Isn't Enough #039
A therapist by trade, Dr. Josh Friedman knew there was something missing relatively early on in his career. There were certain patients that would come into the therapy sessions and/or use the medications prescribed to them by a psychiatrist, but for these individuals, these forms of treatment just didn't seem to work. Surely, some got a LOT better, but the amount that didn't was too great for Dr. Friedman to ignore. In this episode, we dive into his journey of mixing the best of both the conventional and functional models of healthcare. The things that Dr. Friedman learned completely transformed the way he practices and, as a result, he has been able to have much higher success rates with those suffering with mental health issues.  To get in contact with Dr. Friedman, please visit his website at www.moodhealing.com

Bryan Kerstein - Kicking Addiction's A** Once and For All #038
This is a very special episode. Our guest, Bryan Kerstein, is apart of a group of individuals who helped me change my entire life around over 6 years ago now. Little did I know at the time, Bryan was still battling his own demons. In the past year, Bryan has made the decision to change his life once and for all. He is successfully beating over a decade's worth of addiction, and I truly have never seen him this happy and confident. It is a wonderful thing. To see what Bryan is up to, please check him out on Instagram. His handle is @healing_addictiontogether. Way to go man, way to go.

Can Phobias Resolve Naturally? (Want Your Feedback) #037
I've noticed something super interesting over the past two years: My once phobic level fear of flying seems to have virtually disappeared. Resolving that type of mental health problem was never something I even considered doing naturally. However, after a recent experience on a helicopter, it seems almost undeniable that my healing naturally correlates with a lessening of my phobic-level fears.  I want to hear from others who have dealt with phobias, especially those who have overcome them!

Intermittent Fasting For Mental Health Challenges #036

Melissa Stevens - Making Sense Of Highly Sensitive People (sensory-Processing Sensitivity) #035
Highly Sensitive Person? No, it's not your friend, family member, or co-worker who is "too emotional." Highly Sensitive People, or HSPs, are people who process things different than the majority of people. They might feel more deeply, require long periods of time to contemplate things, and they can even be more sensitive to things like sounds and large crowds.  This week, we interview an internet-friend of mine, Melissa Stevens. Melissa went the majority of her life knowing that something was different, but never know what it was! After getting some marketing advice from a business coach, she had her "aha" moment - the moment she realized there was a name for the what she had been experiencing her whole life! Melissa was an absolute pleasure to talk to, and I learned a lot! Psychology is a field that is forever expanding, and it will be amazing to see how many people will find their comfort in knowing they are in fact an HSP, when perhaps they've been wrongly misdiagnosed with a mental health challenge.

The Coronavirus Pandemic And Our Mental Health #033
A last-minute editing issue forced me to fly solo tonight, BUT it doesn't mean this episode went to waste... I had been thinking about addressing the coronavirus directly on this podcast, but wasn't sure where to fit it in. Since I didn't make the decision to do it, it looked like circumstances did it for me. Many people who were already dealing with mental health issues prior to this are experiencing a worsening of symptoms. Many who had NEVER really dealt with much in the world of mental health issues are experiencing them for the first time. This episode is for both parties.

Brittany Ohl - Anxiety GONE In Less Than A Week??? #032
In this episode, I had the privilege of interviewing yet another individual who had their life changed by functional medicine. ⁣ In one of the quickest turnarounds I've ever seen, our guest, Brittany Ohl, used a special kind of testing to dramatically lower levels of inflammation in her body virtually overnight. What is most interesting to me, is that this is a test I've used for YEARS with clients! It's always great to hear success stories from outside sources. ⁣ Brittany's experience with all of this has made such an impression on her that she has now decided to go into the functional healthcare field herself so that she can one day help other's resolve their health challenges. ⁣ Tune into this episode to hear the details of this AWESOME story! ⁣ Brittany has kindly given me permission to share her Instagram handle in case anyone has questions for her. You can reach her at @brittanyohl.⁣ --------------------------------------------------------------------------⁣ Want to be a guest on the podcast?

Nicole Meckley - Saving Her Sister #031
Could you imagine taking custody of your 14 year old sister when you yourself are only 21? For Nicole and Kylie Meckley, that was reality.⁣ ⁣ Kylie, the younger of the two sisters, dealt with some very unfortunate circumstances from an early age. Seeing what was happening to her sister, Nicole jumped in to try to stop it. ⁣ ⁣ After several years of tying to get Kylie to come and live with her, Kylie finally decided to do so at age 14. When you listen to the episode and hear the circumstances Kylie was dealing with, you will have nothing but respect for her level of courage in being able to make the choice that she did. ⁣ ⁣ This episode brings with it a perspective we haven’t had on the show before—the perspective of a young woman who was watching someone she loves deal with mental health and addiction issues they never deserved to have. With this new perspective comes lessons learned about mental health that we don’t always hear on the show, and I am so thankful that Nicole reached out to me to share this with all of us.⁣ ⁣ As always, please let us know what you thought of the episode!⁣ ⁣ ⁣

Nutrition for mental health? Don't take it from Health Coach Ev, take it straight from this AWESOME psychotherapist!⁣ In this interview, we talk to Connie Guerrin, who resolved breast cancer 100% naturally.

Scott Werner - Using Photography To Build Confidence #029
In this episode we interview an old childhood friend of mine, and one of the nicest guys I know, Scott Werner. ⁣ ⁣Scott and I dealt with mental health challenges for very different reasons, but the sadder part is, neither of us knew that the other one was dealing with them.⁣ ⁣After receiving multiple concussions from sports during his childhood and teenage years, Scott began to deal with a variety of physical and mental health symptoms. Even when the physical health issues passed, though, the mental health issues stuck around.⁣ ⁣Overtime, through therapy and positive coping strategies (such as photography), Scott learned that he deal with his mental health issues if he shared what he was going through and put in the work to do so.⁣ ⁣To check out Scott's AWESOME photography, please visit him on Instagram:⁣ ⁣IG: @scottwerner_photography⁣ ⁣

Connor OHanlon - Learning To Balance Mental Health Throughout College #028
In this episode, we interview a childhood friend of mine, Connor OHanlon.⁣ Connor was not someone who would've ever suspected that they were going to deal with true anxiety and depression. I personally always remember Connor being a super confident, friendly guy with many different hobbies and interests.⁣ ⁣Once college came around, though, his mental health would begin to take an unexpected turn.⁣ ⁣What I love about this episode is that Connor has a story that is so relatable to so many people. I feel that I am constantly talking to individuals who saw their mental health suffer in college. It's a new environment that, despite grade schools attempts at preparing us, no one is ever truly ready for. ⁣ ⁣Connor was extremely transparent with us in that he is still in the process of healing, but he has a ton of great value to add to anyone who tunes into this episode. ⁣ ⁣To follow Connor or see some of the many awesome things he is involved with today, check out the links below: ⁣ Instagram: @thicccon (named after his love for weightlifting!)⁣ ⁣His personal podcast which is focused around politics: anchor.fm/theconohshow

Even with all of the things we've talked about on this podcast, I am still 𝘢𝘭𝘸𝘢𝘺𝘴 learning about all of the many ways that mental health issues can manifest.⁣ ⁣ In this episode, we talk with Amber Gordon, who is someone who represents everything this podcast is about. This woman has been through hell and back both mentally and physically, and I am so thankful she joined us to share her story. ⁣ ⁣ Unbeknownst to her, Amber dealt with chronic Lyme disease that managed to stay under the radar until things got BAD. ⁣ ⁣ After years of struggling, a moment that seems like it was set up by the universe occurred. This moment brought with it one last shred of hope, and it would be the exact one Amber needed to start the path of healing. ⁣ ⁣ Tune into this episode to hear an absolutely incredible story from someone with a level of passion that's totally contagious!⁣ ⁣ Check her out using the links below!⁣ ⁣ Website: www.strikeignite.com⁣ IG: @strike_ignite⁣ ⁣ *These audios are intended for entertainment purposes only, and are not meant to replace the advice of licensed professionals.*

Ryan Monahan - Is An Underactive Thyroid Causing YOUR Mental Health Problems? #026
All I can say is WOW. I had an amazing time interviewing fellow functional diagnostic nutrition practitioner, Ryan Monahan, as we dove into one of the most 𝘪𝘯𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘦𝘴𝘵𝘪𝘯𝘨 episodes to date. Similar to me, Ryan had mental health symptoms (as well as tons of other physical health issues) that just didn't add up. While it took him years to finally figure out the answer, once he did, he dove DEEP into the topic.  This is an episode everyone who is struggling needs to listen to, if for no other reason than to rule OUT that thyroid issues could be part of your mental health problems.  After years of dealing with these problems, it only took 24 hours for Ryan to start feeling significantly better. How is that possible? Check out this episode to find out!

Little did we know, we'd both end up having some tough battles with our mental health as time went on.⁣ ⁣ From abusive relationships, to an eventual diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder, to following her passion, Krystina's story hits on SO many different topics.

Jordan Perseveres After Losing Loved Ones #024
We have the pleasure of introducing Jordan as our first international guest on the OMHC podcast.⁣ ⁣ Jordan was not someone who dealt with mental health issues growing up. In fact, it was something that he never really thought about. This would all change forever after the loss of his brother.⁣ ⁣ In a very short period of time, Jordan experienced many tough situations and tragedies. It is a classic case of "circumstantial" mental health issues, something we don't talk about nearly enough on this podcast. I am thankful to have had Jordan on, because he shared with us how he was eventually able to deal with the loss of multiple loved ones in his life. ⁣ ⁣ Jordan created an awesome tribute video for his mom. It can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjx-6VAWs64&feature=youtu.be&fbclid=IwAR0NTkvWNSnVZuq7lhpx4tCqSQr5LSmLG0oEt6gObN5R5tioajH-uPxKFw0⁣ ⁣ *These audios are intended for entertainment purposes only, and are not meant to replace the advice of licensed professionals.*

In this episode, we interview Joey. Joey is someone who struggled with his sexual identity for the majorty of his childhood and teenage years, and it would not be until his college days where he finally began the process of starting to accept who he was. It is well known that the LGBTQ community as a whole has higher rates of mental illness, and this is largely because of the societal stigma that comes along with not being heterosexual. It's been a tough battle for Joey, but he is currently in the best place he's ever been.
