Two years ago, someone asked me what supplements I take to maintain my health, energy, and edge and they were surprised that I only took four things consistently. For myself and my patients, there are four basics that support — at a foundational level — nearly every system in our bodies. In my quest for the highest quality ingredients and the easiest system for consistently incorporating supplementation to my routine, I formulated and manufactured my own line of foundational supplements.

Hang tight everybody! Today’s episode was a doozy! I was joined by Corey Deacon, the co-founder and Medical Director of Neurvana Health, a clinic in Calgary that focuses on brain health and something called Quantitative EEG (qEEG). Now, Corey’s credentials are exhaustive! He has a Doctorate in Natural Medicine, he’s a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner, and he’s a member of The Examining Board of Natural Medicine Practitioners Canada™.


Corey has extensive experience exploring how lifestyle has an effect on brain health. And not just brain health as it pertains to concussions or trauma, but as it pertains to anxiety, depression, ADD, and some of the more functional disorders that are quite frankly systemic in our population.

 

In this episode, Corey and I went deep into the science — we seriously geeked out on some of the things that you should be looking at in your own lifestyle, how you can start to make shifts on a daily basis, and the top three things that we are both seeing affecting people in a chronic way — and they are definitely not what you’d expect!

 

If you are interested in understanding how your brain can serve you at its highest potential and how you can preserve your brain activity very long into life, then this episode is designed especially for you!

[13:13] Has Corey seen shifts in the patients and individuals with emotional and psychological brain diagnoses with the testing that he is doing at Neurvana Health?

[18:54] Corey speaks about the influence of CBD on the brain.

[22:38] Corey highlights some of the habits that have a deleterious effect on the brain.

Last week on the podcast I had the privilege of bringing on one of my closest friends and colleagues, Dr. Erin Wiley. In that episode, we shared that I’m going to be making some really significant transitions in my career which involve me stepping down permanently from private practice and working one-on-one with patients.

 

Throughout the last year, I’ve really taken the time to gain some perspective on how I want to spend my time and energy moving forward. And the one thing that I have always made a promise about is that no matter what I do with my career, I am more committed to the mission at hand than the model through which I serve that mission.

 

With that being said, I’m excited to be bringing you a solo episode this week to share all that I’ve learned in this transition and what I will be doing with my time, going forward. And, if you’re an entrepreneur looking to make some significant shifts in your own business or life, I also recommend tuning in to learn more about the process itself and how to go about such a huge, life-changing transition.

 

Key Takeaways:

[:20] About today’s solo episode.

[1:45] My ultimate mission with the work that I do.

[4:18] What I’ve been struggling with regarding my practice.

[6:09] My turning point for realizing that I needed to step down from my practice.

[10:32] Why I waited until now to make this transition.

[11:42] Why I am incredibly confident in Dr. Erin Wiley to take over my practice.

[13:33] What I’m going to start to do with my time going forward.

[15:15] Giving my thanks to all of you!

[16:31] My limiting beliefs around stepping away from my practice and how I overcame them.

[17:41] What these last five months have been like… and what I promise you moving forward.

It is truly my pleasure to introduce you to my guest today, Dr. Erin Wiley! Dr. Wiley is not only a Naturopathic Doctor, but she is also the person that I co-founded the Integrative Health Institute with back in 2008. And while I moved on from IHI, Erin blossomed that practice into a space that houses over twenty-five practitioners. And what Erin caters to, with a level of excellence that I have seen unparalleled in our industry, is working with entrepreneurs and go-getters.

 

I’m so excited to have Erin joining me today so that we can start to unpack some of her methodologies for working with this population. Erin loves working with entrepreneurs and go-getters and she describes her unique area of practice as “...helping them to see their health goals as being in line with their business goals.” Erin often hears from people that they feel their health is in conflict with their work and they’ve already made too many sacrifices. However, shifting your mindset to understand that your health is actually your powerplay for your business is actually the most critical tool in advancing your career!

 

And, when you stick with us until the end of the podcast, we’re making a MASSIVE announcement! This is something you definitely do not want to miss.

More About Dr. Erin Wiley

Dr. Erin Wiley understands that you are on a mission, leading an industry, defining culture, and making our world a better place. You have goals for your life that include success, freedom, creativity, and adventure. You are giving “your all” to realize your goals and your health is your greatest resource for achieving them.

 

Health is not the price you need to pay for your success. You can “lean in” to your work without sacrificing your well-being.

 

Dr. Erin Wiley is your smart medicine strategist. She operates from a medical system that values function and performance. A system that is not limited when “test results are normal” but you are still suffering. A system that asks bigger questions about your personal vision for your health and does not assume your level of commitment.

 

She won’t tell you to quit your job or ask you to cook every meal from scratch, but she will help you to get real about aligning your health goals with your life goals. Abundant energy, amazing relationships, and big life adventures are the fuel that will help you leave your mark on the world without leaving your health behind.
