You will know if your practitioner is the right one for you. Just by talking with them and seeing what their philosophy is and how they would like to approach things and if it resonates with you, because that's what you need to work with. You need to work with someone who is going to resonate with you, understand what you’re trying to achieve, and do it in a way that's not overwhelming and that has the patience and the ability to do this properly.”

We're all born with a bank account and we can't put any money in, but every day we withdraw 24 hours. If that 24 hours is spent stressed or concerned about health or pain or just not absolutely thriving and enjoying life, then that 24 hours gets screwed up, thrown in the waste paper bin, and the next day you go and draw out another 24 hours. The issue is we do not know what our balance is, but I know that I’m taking 24 hours today, and so this day needs to be phenomenal for me. I need to enjoy everything and I need to be in a frame of mind that I start the day looking for the amazing things, being receptive to them.”

“There is no generic prescription for the human body. We are so complex. We all have different DNA, we're all built differently. What you are seeing online or in any kind of media is a generic piece of advice. No one knows what age you are, what your medical history has been, what your blood glucose is like, what your liver function is like, how your hormones are functioning, what your sleep is like, your stress levels. No one knows anything about you. But if we know all of you properly, then we can make it specific for you.”

“There is this misconception in our culture that if I get this weight or get this body, my life will feel good. And what I feel like we're trying to do at WeShape on top of really addressing the movement piece is kind of saying that's not true. We're actually hoping people can stop going down the path of diets, can stop with all of these crazy workout routines, can just actually get back to basics and focus on what makes them feel good rather than what makes them look good.”

“I like to try to see if people will be open to shifting their perspective and really figuring out, well, how can I connect with my food in a different way? How can I be less critical and less judgmental of self when I'm eating certain things? Can we shift the goals and intentions for our relationship with food? I think that's a more meaningful cause than diets and calorie burn and the number on the scale.”

“It’s never too late to change how you connect with yourself, to change how you think about yourself, to change how you feel in your body. It's never too late.”

“You can't have happiness without your health, but you can't also have happiness without enough money to spend to enjoy with your friends and family. That intersection is happening faster and faster based on advances in financial technology and health and wellness and longevity. Both of those are absolutely escalating very quickly.”

Look at your value system. What do you value more in your life? Do you value a big pile of money with not great health and maybe not great connections, or do you value enough money and good health and good connections with your family and friends? I would argue, that is a richer life.”

“Hopefully the majority of your listeners and viewers are going to be healthy, that's great. Make time to keep that regimen, because if you keep putting it off, someday the red alert button comes on and you’ll be forced to take time off to deal with issues that you could have prevented.”

“I don't just come in say, do this, do that. Wave a magic wand, have them go away and do the big reveal. No, that doesn't work. The point is that they have to work with me and by the end of working with me, they've made the decisions. People always say, oh, you're an organizer. You're going to make me throw everything out. No, I'm not going to make you throw everything out. I'm going to make you look at everything and see if it's something that you want in your life. And the most important part of that is to ask, is this good for me?”

You asked what clutter was, clutter is the wrong stuff. It's stuff that maybe you have duplicates of because you forgot you had one and then you have triplicates of, because now you can't find the first two. There's stuff that makes you feel some negative emotion, like sad, angry, regret, whatever it is. You don't want to feel that when you see things. So if that's what's in your house, let's get rid of it, because there's no reason to keep things around that don't make you feel good or that you don't need.”

“I never say throw out, I say, let go. If you're holding tight to something, your hand is not open to receive. And a lot of times people are just holding tight to old dreams, but because they haven't happened yet. I thought that I would scrapbook, but now I'd rather travel. So maybe I can get rid of that dream and all the things that went with that dream.”

“You can have the best mattress, you can have the best pillow, you can have the best of whatever sleep products are out there, you can pop as much melatonin as you like. You will not get a good night of sleep if you are not breathing well, because our body needs air. We can go weeks without food. We can go days without water. Not many of us, if any, can live for minutes without air. Air is our primary directive and if we are breathing poorly at night, our body stops all other restorative processes.”

“Continue to advocate for yourself because there is nothing better than having a natural solution to a problem that can either compound and get worse as you age, or that is already causing you pain or discomfort. So advocate for yourself. The more you do, the better you'll get treated and serviced.”

“We're actually in an epidemic, a worldwide epidemic, and I'm not talking about COVID, I'm talking about the World Health Organization declaring sleep a global epidemic because 45% of our global population suffers from sleep deprivation. We have to breathe better.”

“Periodontal disease affects 50% of the American public over the age of 35. This disease is so critical to manage, and your family practitioner and caregivers should always make sure that your oral health is in good shape so that you can make sure that you're managing the rest of your health properly.”

“We don't usually think about it because we sort of take bodies that are working for granted, but the teeth are your smile, your speech, your way of communication. So, if you don't have a healthy mouth… you have a problem.”

“If you have gum disease, you have a low grade infection and inflammatory process going on. If you spread out the size of the gums across a wider area, it's about the size of the palm of a large hand. So, it's not an insignificant sized infection. If you have an infection like that with all the inflammatory mediators and the hyper inflammation that's going on in that area, you'll have an impact on pretty much every disease that we are used to describing: cardiac disease, increase in strokes, increase even in Alzheimer's disease, increase in arthritis, increase in diabetes.”
