203: Focus Friday - To Eat Or Not To Eat... Lectins
11:59

To eat or not to eat... lectins. This is the question we were faced with after our latest episode featuring Dr. Steven Gundry.

A group of proteins called lectins are the primary defence most plants have against predators... including us (human beings).

Today we're discussing how we're going to approach lectins in the "healthy" foods we've been consuming.

114: Sean Croxton - The Pursuit Of An Authentic Life
01:10:31

Sean Croxton launched a health focused YouTube channel in 2007 that became an instant hit.

In 2008, when nobody really knew what a podcast was, Sean launched his first show, Underground Wellness Radio. The podcast ran for 7 years and he released 348 episodes over this period of time. Underground Wellness Radio focused on all things real food and functional medicine with a bit of personal development, on the side.

Surprising to most, in 2015 Sean closed up shop with his brand Underground Wellness and started a new podcast, The Sessions. On his new show, he flipped the focus to personal development with a sprinkle of health.

Sean has big plans to focus on and dominate the personal health space for years to come.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Sean Croxton, the early years
  • Sean's social anxiety and his experiment with Paxil
  • The backward education Sean got in college
  • Having faith and expectancy with the work you do
  • You won't receive without giving first
  • The money you earn is in direct proportion to the service you give
  • Stop focusing on the haters
  • The pivot from Underground Wellness to The Sessions
  • The root cause of a lot of health problems resides in the mind
  • The importance of loving what you do for a living
  • Get unstuck by figuring out who you are and what you're capable of
  • The power of putting your authentic self out to the world
  • Growth = happiness
