Joyce Shulman, the Founder and CEO of 99 Walks, a community that encourages health, fitness, and connection through walking joins eHealth Radio and the Health News and Fitness Channels.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Joyce Shulman discuss the following:

  1. What are some of the earliest memories you associate with walking?
  2. How has walking changed your life?
  3. How can walking improve happiness?
  4. Why is walking good for connection and relationships?
  5. 99 Walks is more than a step tracker. Can you tell us more about it?

Tip: Exercise in general, and walking in particular, has incredible benefits for our mind, our mood and our bodies. Research shows that a regular walking practice can reduce our risk of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis and several types of cancer. In fact, walking is so good for you that one study showed that a regular walking practice can add up to seven years to your life. (study by European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Congress as reported in the Independent)


Joyce Shulman is Co-Founder and CEO of 99 Walks: a wellness and walking lifestyle brand, community and app on a mission to create community and get a million women walking. A self-confessed idea junkie, Joyce traded her law career as a commercial litigator for an entrepreneurial journey focused on what mattered to her most: family, community, and empowering women to get healthy, happy, and chase their dreams.

Throughout her personal and professional life, Joyce’s regular walking practice has been her key for managing stress, fueling creativity, and maintaining her health. After discovering that the research bears out all that she learned instinctively, Joyce and her husband and partner Eric Cohen founded 99 Walks to help women experience what recent studies have shown: that walking can improve decision-making and executive function, combat depression, increase creativity and literally add years to one’s life.

In addition to being the “Pack Leader” at 99 Walks, Joyce is an author, speaker, TEDx veteran, podcaster, and consultant for companies and women’s group, where she shares her expertise about the life-changing impact of a consistent, intentional walking practice.

Joyce received her Bachelors in Business Management from the University of Maryland and her JD, Cum Laude, from St. John’s University School of Law. After law school, she spent more than a dozen years as a New York City lawyer where her practice focused on complex commercial litigation. She calls Sag Harbor, New York home where she lives with one husband, two teenagers, and a slightly unruly dog named Moose.

Navigating Addiction Where Nothing is “Normal”

Navigating Addiction Where Nothing is “Normal”

Dr. David Kushner, the Medical Director at BRIGHTSIDE Clinic where he has treated hundreds of patients with Opioid Use Disorder joins eHealth Radio and the Addiction Prevention and Health News Channels.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Dr. David Kushner discuss the following:

  1. What led you specifically to addiction medicine?
  2. Substance abuse is surrounded by stigma, still, today. What is the number one thing you want people to know about those you help?
  3. Fighting addiction is difficult in a "normal" world, but what about now? How has your mission changed? How have you shifted gears since the pandemic began?
  4. For those who are maybe struggling right now and want to seek treatment, what is the first step they should take? What is your advice to them and/or their loved ones?
  5. If you could give our listeners three pieces of advice and/or recommendations, what would they be?
  6. What have you learned about yourself and/or your colleagues during this time?

TIP: A physician’s skills and knowledge will always be needed, but medicine is rapidly changing like many other industries. Providers cannot rest on their experience and credentials and allow their ego to demand patients be the only ones to change. Cutting edge is no longer just knowledge and new protocols or techniques; it is flexibility in how patients can access you, and understanding how patients and the world have changed leading to reinvention and innovation of the modern medical practice.


Dr. David Kushner is the Medical Director at BRIGHTSIDE Clinic where he has treated hundreds of patients with Opioid Use Disorder. Board-certified in Addiction Medicine, Dr. Kushner is known for his cutting edge, patient-centered, collaborative approach in addressing this challenging, yet treatable condition. Dr. Kushner received his undergraduate degree from Michigan State University, a medical degree from Midwestern University and is a graduate of the Advocate Lutheran General Hospital Internal Medicine Residency Program.

Feelings and Reason - Activating Your Heart as Compass Despite the Ego’s Interference

Feelings and Reason - Activating Your Heart as Compass Despite the Ego’s Interference

January 22, 2021

 

ErnieVecchio.png

 

Ernie L. Vecchio, a mentor, spiritual teacher and trauma psychologist and a Licensed Clinical & Rehabilitation Psychologist who has written four books including his latest release, Feelings & Reason: Activating Your Heart as Compass Despite the Ego’s Interference, an international best-seller in four self-help categories joins eHealth Radio and the Health News and Mental Health Channels.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Ernie L. Vecchio discuss the following:

  1. How is human suffering self-correcting?
  2. What is the difference between suffering for ourselves versus suffering with ourselves?
  3. How is your work the missing piece in the mental health model?
  4. How do you know there is a difference between life as it is and life as intended?
  5. What determines the possibility that everyone has the capacity to be mean-spirited?

Ernie L. Vecchio is a psycho-spiritual mentor and thought leader offering contemporary wisdom on human suffering. As a trauma psychologist whose career spans 30+ years, he has treated over 10,000+ patients who suffered severe trauma that ranged from amputation, head injury, sexual assault, and paralysis. He discovered a common theme in their suffering and developed a healthy way for people to cope with adversity.

Vecchio reveals a developmental understanding of how adversity becomes an opportunity for self-correction, growth, and healing. By acknowledging the human ego is only one-third of a larger system, people learn not only what is observing their life, but why and where it is intending for them to go.

Vecchio is the author of four books that includes his latest release, Feelings & Reason: Activating Your Heart as Compass Despite the Ego’s Interference, an international best-seller. In the book, professional helpers and seekers are introduced to a developmental and new psychological theory about human suffering that merges with secular spirituality. It is the missing piece in the mental health model and advances the mind, body and spirit movement. In essence, when one utilizes the heart as a compass, the road less traveled (inward journey) presents us with a reliable map toward self-recovery and our fullest expression.

Cutting Back on Alcohol with a Science-based Program

Cutting Back on Alcohol with a Science-based Program

August 1, 2020

 

katie_lain_headshot_500_x_500b1pn9.jpg

 

Katie Lain, the Director of Community Engagement at Ria Health that provides at-home, evidence-based alcohol treatment through telemedicine joins eHealth Radio and the Addiction Prevention and Telemedicine Channels.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Katie Lain discuss the following:

  1. Can you tell us more about Ria Health and how it helps people who want to drink less alcohol, or even stop for good?
  2. So if a person is finding it hard to control how much they drink, but they also don’t want to go 100% abstinent, what other options do they have?
  3. But if someone does want to go abstinent, these methods can help as well?
  4. How did you get involved with Ria?
  5. In your experience, how would someone know if they are drinking too much and need to seek support to cut back or stop?

TIP: If you’re someone who is experiencing regular hangovers, or find you NEED alcohol to unwind every night or weekend, consider looking into evidence-based treatments and medication therapy. Abstinence is not required, it can be done discreetly and evidence shows that it is effective for many people – resulting in more control over their alcohol consumption, or giving it up more easily without battling alcohol cravings.

 

eu_natural_breathe_ads_300x250_8_part_17jx5e.jpg

 

Katie Lain is the Director of Community Engagement with Ria Health. Ria’s science-backed platform is for anybody who wants to drink less alcohol and live a better life. Their evidence-based program is delivered through telehealth which means it’s accessible from anywhere using a HIPAA-compliant app.

 

Ria’s program provides both harm-reduction and abstinence based methods that include physician guided care plans, one-on-one coaching, medication therapy, peer group support and digital tools to track progress. Since Ria began in 2016, they have served over 1500 people and counting who want to improve their relationship with alcohol.

 

Ria Health is also covered by many major health insurers across the US, and on average, Ria Members see a 75% reduction in their Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) levels after 12 months in the program.

 

Katie Lain joined Ria Health after she overcame alcohol addiction through this evidence-based treatment method. She now works both professionally and personally to raise awareness about these options for treating alcohol dependence.
