Dr. Josh Axe (Part 1): A Conversation on Mindset Wellness

How do our thoughts impact our health? Does our mindset impact our likelihood of getting cancer? 

Today, I’m joined by Dr. Josh Axe to talk about how our mindset affects our overall health. Dr. Axe is an expert in natural medicine, chiropractic care, and clinical nutrition and is a trusted source for those seeking holistic approaches to wellness.

His dedication to empowering individuals to eat healthily and live vibrantly led him to establish a functional medicine center in Nashville in 2008, which rapidly gained international recognition and solidified his reputation as a leader in the field.

In today’s episode, Dr. Axe shares the benefits of natural medicine and holistic approaches to understanding the mysteries behind cancer and empowering ourselves with the tools for a healthier tomorrow.

In this episode

[02:55] Dr. Axe’s input on Deborah’s article about the lymphatic system and its connection with Costco.

[05:37] Is there a specific age when the lymphatic system begins to decelerate or experience dysfunction?

[09:30] When we undergo blood work and discover an underactive thyroid or other issues, determining where to start can be challenging. How do you navigate this?

[11:39] How to maintain a healthy lifestyle when it’s financially burdensome.

[18:07] “If you think and believe I can get healthy, I can find a way to get real food, you will”. – Dr. Axe

[22:09] During his mother’s battle with cancer, Dr. Axe found that a key aspect of her healing involved a transformation in mindset, emotions, and beliefs.

[25:26] With prolonged exposure to the state of fight or flight, the body releases cortisol and adrenaline, the stress hormones. It can lead to fatigue in the adrenals, and affect the kidneys and reproductive organs.

[28:58] Women tend to engage in more frequent and profound thought processes. Men, on the other hand, are inclined to tune out and go numb.

[33:31] While it may be impossible to have it all, embracing joy is achievable for both men and women.
