180 Nutrition -The Health Sessions.

This week, I'm excited to welcome Caspar Szulc. Caspar was born in Manhattan, New York, and from an early age, he was exposed to a lifestyle of healthy diet, exercise, and a holistic and spiritual mentality by his father, a pioneer in integrative medicine, and mother, a psychologist. Caspar attended Boston University’s School of Management where he received degrees in Marketing and Finance. He then worked as a financial analyst before starting the venture now known as Innovative Medicine at the age of 22.

As President and Co-Founder of Innovative Medicine, Caspar brings a passion and vision that has played a vital role in the growth of the company and world-renowned medical center and breaking into new markets around the globe. His “quality first” approach has helped to set the tone of a company that not only bridges that gap of science and nature but of design and medicine – relentlessly trying to achieve a balance of the two that benefits both practitioner and patient.

An avid traveler and explorer, he has visited 6 continents, 57 countries, and all 50 states in the U.S. His search for new therapies, modalities and how other cultures heal continues to take him to new places around the planet. He has applied the knowledge gained from traveling and his unique upbringing to help others achieve a healthier, happier existence.

He enjoys mountain climbing (climbed three of the 7 Summits), tennis (attended all 4 Grand Slams), meditation, exotic foods (has eaten giraffe, zebra, tarantula, and rotten shark among other novel foods), and being a Big Brother to a wonderful Little. Caspar now resides in Battery Park City, NYC.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What are the fundamental problems with conventional medicine?
  • What can we do to safeguard our brains from decline?
  • What can we expect in the future with integrative medicine?

This week I'm excited to welcome Caspar Szulc. Casper is the co-founder of Innovative Medicine, a company leading the way with a unique cutting edge and highly effective approach to medicine and health. In this episode, we discuss the fundamental problems with conventional medicine, and explore how a personalize interpretive approach can help push the boundaries of what's possible in healthcare today. Over to Caspar.

Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I'm delighted to welcome Caspar Szulc to the podcast today. Caspar, how are you?

Caspar

01:19 I'm doing well Stu. Thanks for having me.

Stu

01:21 No, I really appreciate it. And I've got a whole heap of questions that I'm very keen and eager to get stuck into, but before we do, for all of our listeners that may not be familiar with you or your work, I'd just love it if you could tell us a little bit about yourself please?

Caspar

01:37 Sure thing. So I am the co-founder of Innovative Medicine. We're an organization that has been really transforming medicine and how we look at healing for the last 15 years or so. We have a clinical center in New York that sees patients from around the world, and we really are one of the few places that is truly advocating for a personalize and integrative form of medicine that gets at the root causes, and really restores health on all sides, mind, body, spirit. So it's East meets West, meets everything in between.

And we're really trying to help patients at that field, they don't have too many options out there to go about it. And in a unique way that gets to those underlying dysfunctions, addresses them with a truly comprehensive approach and gets them back on track for prolonged health. How we should live in our natural state is healthy. And that's what we're aiming to do.

This week I'm excited to welcome Dr Valdeane Browne. Dr. Brown had a long and varied history in the field of mental health before even pursuing his Ph.D. in Psychology. For over 25 years he taught Continuing Medical Education courses across a wide range of clinical topics including Rapid Transformation of Borderline Phenomenology, Dual Diagnosed Clients, Dynamics of Family Therapy, Working With Angry Adolescents. For many years he was a featured and keynote speaker at numerous national and international conferences in the fields of neurofeedback, child psychology, Total Quality Management, and others. He developed and published the Five Phase Model of Neurofeedback which was the first and still the only, approach to clinical neurofeedback that integrated multiple protocols into a single comprehensive approach that could be used regardless of clinical presentation. With his background in mathematics, physics, computer programming, designing and implementing automated outcome studies as well as multimodal assessment, he was able to co-develop, with his wife Dr. Sue Brown, the Period Three Approach to neurofeedback. Their Approach was fundamental to their new and revolutionary neurofeedback system (later to become NeurOptimal®), showcasing their vision of Dynamical Neurofeedback™. Over time this was refined, always with an overarching commitment to safe, effective and effortless personal transformation that anyone can use. Now retired from actively programming, Dr. Brown directs the ongoing architectural development of NeurOptimal® as well as being intimately involved in ongoing Research and Development at Zengar.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What are the main principles of neural feedback?
  • What would a typical brain training session look like?
  • How safe is the practice of brain training?

Hi Guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I am delighted to welcome Dr. Valdeane Brown, PhD to the podcast. Dr. Brown, how are you?

Dr. Valdeane

01:30 I'm good. How about you Stuart?

Stu

01:31 Yeah, very well thank you. Again, thank you so much for sharing some of your time today. I'm very, very intrigued and keen to dive into some of the questions, but before we do that, I just wondered if you could tell our audience who may not be familiar with you, a little bit about who you are and what you do?

Dr. Valdeane

01:50 Yes. I'm licensed as a psychologist on inactive status in the US, and my wife is too, Dr. Sue Brown. She and I are the co developers of NeurOptimal brain training system, and we're the co founders of Zengar Institute Incorporated. It's the easiest to use, safest, and overall most interesting brain training system. Let's put it that way. Certainly the most advanced, in my opinion, and it really is about giving brain directly information about what it just did, so the brain itself sorts out what is best for it at that moment. It's not driving it any place in particular.

02:41 About 20 years ago, Sue and I decided that we really needed to create our own neuro feedback program. I was teaching at that time, neuro feedback, across a wide range of systems. Various conferences and things of that nature, and I just had had a very different vision for what neuro feedback could be. I actually had that vision all the way back in 1970, and that's kind of been my life's work. Most of that time waiting for technology to catch up to the place where it could implement what I had envisioned. So I'm definitely the visionary, shall we say?

This week I'm excited to welcome Dr. Nicki Steinberger. Dr. Steinberger is a holistic health educator, writer, speaker and coach. She teaches people how to prevent and reverse type 2 diabetes using intricitive holistic lifestyle medicine. In this episode, we discuss the early warning signs, common myths and strategies that we can adopt to change the path of the epidemic that is type 2 diabetes. Over to Dr. Steinberger.

01:16 Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I am delighted to welcome Dr. Nicki Steinberger to the podcast. Dr. Nicki, how are you?

Nicki

01:25 How Stuart. I am feeling good. Thank you so much for having me here. It's an honor.

Stu

01:28 Oh I really appreciate being able to tap into your wisdom today. So before we do so, I was just wondering if you could tell our listeners a little bit about yourself please.

Nicki

01:41 Sure. So, let's see, if I go back to childhood for a moment, I would just say that I was an introverted, quiet child who sort of sought out the truth of things and was an observer.

Stu

01:58 Yes.

Nicki 

01:58 And I've been a writer my whole life. I was a song writer and played guitar an sang and did poetry and that sort of thing. I left high school early and went and followed the Grateful Dead for a couple of years, so I've always been sort of a non-conformist.

Stu

02:16 Yeah.

Nicki

02:17 And then I found my way back to psychology school somehow. I was actually sitting in my therapist's office and going, "You know, I could do that. I could be sitting in the other chair. I think I can do that." So, I ended up in a school for spiritual psychology, which was pretty life changing. And from there I transferred to do a doctorate in clinical psychology, feeling burnt out on kind of therapy and didn't want to go down that road. So I thought, "Well, I can write and I can teach and do research."

02:54 And then about almost ten years ago, I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, so I took that next year to see what I could do on my own. What kind of program I could put together. I'd been studying nutrition and holistic health for decades and a year later when I was tested again and I had reverse type 2 and other conditions, it was my sort of "aha" moment, where I then transitioned into holistic health education and started doing community workshops in the San Francisco Bay area, working with clients and then started thinking about writing this book which I did over the last few years. And that's me in a nutshell.

Stu

03:40 Fantastic. Oh I love the story. And I think the area of that story that people are really going to resonate with right now, want to know more, is the reversal of type 2 diabetes, which I think will probably form a lot of the conversation that we have today. And before we get into the techniques and strategies that you used to reverse your type 2 diabetes, why do you think it's becoming so popular? It just seems now like it's a term now that is used so commonly. Because so many people seem to becoming diabetic, which is kind of crazy. What are your thoughts?

Nicki
