A Digital Approach to Improving the Lives of People Who Suffer From Migraines with Dr. Caryn Seebach

Ep. 60

There are approximately 28 million Americans who are managing migraines, who don’t know that they have it because they never received a proper diagnosis or treatment plan.

 

As you may know, I’m very fond of this topic, and throughout the show, I’ve had several guests that are experts on this poorly researched condition. In today’s episode, I continue presenting new ways that can help you or someone you know who is suffering from headaches and migraines.

 

Dr. Caryn Seebach is not only a friend of mine and a former colleague, but she is also truly an expert in her field, with a lot of great information that can help us in a new approach to dealing with health issues.

 

She is the Director of Programs at Ctrl M Health – a digital company providing Integrative Health and Wellness Solutions for those living with headaches and migraines. Dr. Seebach is a health psychologist with a specialization in behavioral management of chronic pain, headache, and sleep - and has a deep interest in mind-body medicine and its applications for improving psychological health.

 

If you are suffering from migraines or you know someone dealing with this profoundly misunderstood condition, then listen to Episode 60 of Rejuvenaging, to learn more about her work and how Ctrl M is the go-to app that can bring some light to this debilitating disease.

 

Questions I ask:

  • Can you tell us what Ctrl M is? (03:35)
  • Where did the name, ‘Ctrl M’ come from? (07:28)
  • Is there individual interaction on the app? Can a person contact someone directly through it? (17:51)
  • Can you tell our listeners how tech-savvy they have to be to use the app? (19:48)
  • How did you get to this point? What was your life journey up until now? (35:31)
  • Is there a charge for your program? (41:04)

 

In this episode, you will learn:

  • How Ctrl M is complementing medical care. (09:04)
  • The primary goals of Ctrl M. (12:26)
  • When you should reach out to Ctrl M. (13:47)
  • The pillars of Ctrl M. (26:04)
  • Why self-awareness and connectedness are important for managing your health. (29:59)

Growing the Confidence and Self-Esteem Muscle with Nate Palmer

Ep. 79
Computers and electronic devices brought countless advantages to the world, making human life easier in a lot of ways. A big part of the modern world was built by people seated behind a desk facing a monitor, and most jobs nowadays require long hours sitting in front of a screen. In addition to this established work style, the society of the spectacle we live in requires a passive attitude from the audience, comfortably seated on a couch. The negative side of a comfortable and entertaining life is sedentarism, eating disorders, poorly shaped bodies, and tons of magical recipes to lose weight. But the answer is not in miraculous techniques but in modifying our lifestyle, reframing the kind of people we want to be.In this episode, I had a wonderful conversation with Nate Palmer, Trainer, Public Speaker, Fat Loss Ninja, and author of two published books, Passport Fitness, and The Million Dollar Body Method. We talked about the reasons why people find it hard to lose weight and to get in shape. He shared his unique perspective on tackling this from a different angle, reframing who we are. He kindly shared his top three tips for starting significant change and his viewpoint about carbohydrate consumption.After a violent episode in his childhood, Nate embarked on a body transformation journey seeking muscles to feel more powerful. Surprisingly for him, what he found at the end of that path was a different result, confidence, self-esteem, and general positivity. He realized then the positive impact of committing to a goal and staying on course.Some Questions I Ask:Can you tell us a bit of your journey to get to be who you are? (3:00)What would you tell somebody wanting to start making some changes and don't know where to start? (6:23)Can you give us a few basic things for somebody who wants to commit to making that change? (11:10)Can you give us a short course on what carbohydrates are? (16:04)Speaking about alcohol and coffee, could you explain how something liquid cannot add hydration to your body?

Having a happy, meaningful life is what all of us are after, but still, it is something not everyone seems to attain. We might have a successful professional or academic life, yet happiness could be elusive to us. It could be because we are doing what is expected from us - whether it would be fulfilling our parents, siblings, or partner's expectations - and ignoring our needs and wants.

The Man With a Toolbox to Fix Time with Trevor Lohrbeer

Ep. 77
Working from home taught us several things and one of them, no doubt, is that we were wrong if we thought that spending more time in the house will let us complete all our projects. Many of us struggle to achieve personal and professional plans, even when we barely leave the house. The problem is not the number of hours we have but how we use them. Still, the solution is in our hands, and it requires little effort, consistency, and self-awareness: time management.Joining me today is Trevor Lohrbeer, serial entrepreneur, Founder of Strategic Life Tools, and Lead Writer at Lean Decisions. He is also the creator and founder of Day Optimizer, an app designed to convert entrepreneurs' and consultants' daily to-do lists into a daily schedule to help them leverage their activities and achieve more using their time more efficiently.We had a fantastic and enlightening conversation about time management and how important it is to acknowledge first what kind of person we are before implementing any action plan. According to Trevor, this is central; since morning birds and night owls are creative and active at different times, their schedules and planning should also be distinctive. We talked about how to deal with interruptions, and he kindly shared some tools to fight procrastination.
