It is difficult to be a badass business person rocking it in the real world if you don’t get to sleep at night. And while my issues throughout the course of the night are caused by three small people who like to come and visit me, not everyone has the natural gift of being able to sleep anytime, anywhere. I can fall asleep at a moment’s notice when I don’t have people crawling on me, but I recognize that this may not be the case for everyone…

 

My guest today, Christine Hansen, is an expert at getting people to sleep. She is the founder of the business Sleep Like A Boss and she works with busy people and entrepreneurs to help them be able to achieve sleep, restoration, rebuilding — and all the things that happen when you finally get to that special place.

 

In this episode, Christine and I got totally real on some of the very specific things you need to do to actually get a good night’s sleep. We talk about how much you should be sleeping, whether you should — or should not — be using sleep apps, what you should be feeling in the morning to know you actually had a successful night’s sleep, and some of the important tests and assessments that Christine goes through in her own practice when working with clients to find out what the cause of their sleep dysfunctions may happen to be.

Today I am joined by my friend and fellow Naturopathic Doctor, Dr. Alan Christianson. Dr. Christianson is a New York Times best-selling author and naturopathic physician down in Arizona. And today, we’re talking about the role of your liver and detox in actually helping you facilitate weight loss and normal metabolic function.

 

The ideas we’re talking about today may very well be the missing piece for many of you in terms of why your metabolism is not acting the way you want it to. His new book, The Metabolism Reset Diet, gets into this missing piece, which is one of the most important organs in chronic disease and metabolism — your liver.

 

In this episode, we talk all about how the liver is a part of the weight loss and healthy metabolism conversation, how it differs from the role of the thyroid in terms of burning fuel, Dr. Christianson’s approach to resetting metabolism from the perspective of the liver, what optimal liver health looks likes, and so much more! This is truly a must-listen-to interview for anybody!

 

Key Takeaways:

[1:02] About today’s awesome guest, Dr. Alan Christianson!

[2:54] Welcoming Dr. Christianson onto the podcast!

[3:44] Dr. Christianson introduces himself and his story.

[5:52] What is it that drives Dr. Christianson now in his practice?

[6:46] Why is the liver a part of the weight loss and healthy metabolism conversation?

[8:49] How does the liver differ from the role of the thyroid in terms of burning fuel?

[9:37] Has Dr. Christianson always approached metabolism from the perspective of the liver?

[10:50] What optimal liver health looks like.

[13:19] The role of sugar in fatty liver disease.

[15:54] What pushes people over their personal threshold (leading to fatty liver)? Is it a chemical burden or a total fuel burden on the liver?

[18:00] The different types of ways fuel is burned.

[19:37] Dr. Christianson’s recommendations for a metabolic reset diet.

[21:28] What does Dr. Christianson’s average lunch look like? What does he recommend?

[22:47] Does intermittent fasting have positive implications on liver health?

[24:34] Is there any easy way for people to test their liver function?

[25:47] Dr. Christianson describes the relationship between hormonal dysregulation in women and the liver.

[27:36] Dr. Christianson’s suggestions on what we can start doing today to give our liver the love it deserves!

[32:38] Is there anyone who’s not a good candidate for the metabolic reset diet?

[33:27] Is the metabolic reset diet designed to accelerate organ-based fat?

[34:00] Is the idea behind the metabolic reset diet that if we can reduce the ratio of organ fat in the body, that it will then drive the acceleration of fat loss in those hard-to-lose areas?

[37:02] Today’s episode is brought to you by Fullscript — one of my favorite applications I use in my practice. Fullscript and I do some fun work together and next week we’re going to be bringing you a liver health masterclass!

Today's episode is brought to you by my friends at Fullscript.

Fullscript is one of my favourite applications that I use in my practice. For my patients, the benefit is that it enables them to order their supplements online, have them delivered right to their door with total and great ease. They even have this really cool function that reminds patients when they need to reorder. It's amazing for adherence and most importantly makes this whole notion of taking things that much easier. For practitioners, it takes the nightmare out of managing inventory and improves patient adherence to what they are supposed to be taking to get them better. I am obsessed with user experience. How do we make accessing health easier for the people who are trying to consume it? Fullscript has solved that problem and for that reason, I am a huge fan. Ask your natural health care provider about Fullscript at your next appointment.

In this week’s episode, we have a fantastic repeat guest: Mary Shores!

She has a job that most people would be extremely uncomfortable with, and that is to ask people for money — specifically debts. When people don’t pay their bills, it is her job to call them up as their friendly neighborhood debt collector.

 

Last time I had Mary Shores on the podcast, we focused on her expertise as a conscious communicator and the methodology she had developed around that. It wasn’t until Mary spoke at my event, Impact LIVEs, this past October, that I found out about Mary’s primary business — a debt collection agency! The experience she gained from having to collect money on behalf of her clients actually compelled her to develop the methodology that she uses with respect to conscious communication.

 

There is probably not a conversation more difficult on earth than to ask someone for money — especially money that they owe or debts they cannot pay. Mary’s mission in life is to leave those conversations with those people feeling better than when the conversation started — that is a challenge if I’ve ever heard one!

 

Today on the podcast, Mary and I not only talked about her methodology around conscious communication but the energetics of money. How do we deal with this need for us, as business owners, to ask people for money? And how do we position the systems and language effectively within our own business to be able to do it?

 

Key Takeaways:

[1:48] About today’s episode and guest!

[4:11] Welcoming Mary Shores back to the Entrepology Podcast!

[4:54] Mary tells her story as an entrepreneur and her core business.

[11:19] How can we, as entrepreneurs, approach the conversation of asking for money in a way that everyone leaves the conversation feeling empowered? And what mindset should we put ourselves in?

[21:51] The importance of switching away from a passive voice when asking for money.

[24:12] Mary’s recommendations for what you should make part of your training agenda in regards to asking for money.

[26:45] Mary’s advice for the best ways of broaching a conversation when somebody owes you money.

[30:03] Mary tells a story about how patients can energetically affect you — especially in a negative way if they’re difficult when it comes to payments.

[32:55] Mary’s tips for creating empathy and compassion for those who owe money, planting a seed of happiness, and setting expectations.

[36:06] How long did it take Mary to find her groove and flow in her business as an entrepreneur?

[43:41] Some of the things Mary has done in the last year to really elevate her journey as an entrepreneur.

[52:00] What Mary would like her legacy to be.

More About Mary Shores

20 years ago, Mary Shores started with an idea. Today, she is a successful entrepreneur with a multi-million-dollar, heart-centered business and a best-selling book, Conscious Communications. But she didn’t start that way. Mary hit rock-bottom after enduring the loss of her daughter and surviving an unstable past filled with abandonment but found within herself the strength to rebuild by founding an industry-changing business. She now inspires others with lessons of resiliency and empowerment nationwide.

CALL TO ACTION

Utilize Mary’s tips the next time you need to ask a client or patient for money! Firstly, set up policies and procedures around your billing practices. Next, train a receptionist to take over the role of asking for money if your business is big enough. It’s also important to train all of your staff to know how to interact around money.

 

We also want to say lots of positive words because positive words reinforce a positive outcome (meanwhile, negative words reinforce a negative outcome). And it’s important to plant seeds (in who you’re asking for money from) that everything is going to turn out alright. Then, you need to set expectations of what’s going to happen next. So put this together in a little three-step process: 1) validate 2) seed of happiness 3) action statement.

CALL TO ACTION

Pay attention to how often you, your friends, your kids, or your spouse are using the words “but” and “try.” These words not only indicate that the sentence you’re about to say is a limiting belief, but it reinforces it in your mind and solidifies it! Language is critical, so try shifting your sentences into more positive affirmations and replacing these limiting beliefs with unlimiting beliefs. Remember to follow-up on The Entrepology Podcast Facebook page — because when you are accountable, you are helpable.
