Rejuvenaging with Dr. Ron Kaiser


Using Astrology as Therapy with Lisa Tahir

Ep. 57

Have you thought about astrology as more than just a horoscope sign? 

Even if you’re an astrology buff, the word “Chiron” might not ring any bells. Most people have not heard of the concept of Chiron, let alone know what their Chiron is and how it can be used to help them recover from trauma.

Each and every one of us has a unique Chiron based off of our natal charts that pinpoints our deepest spiritual wound and how we can heal from it. In today’s episode, my guest, Lisa, dives further into Chiron. She explains her introduction to Chiron, how she applies Chiron with her clients, and why her new book The Chiron Effect should be everyone’s next read. 

Lisa Tahir is a therapist, licensed social worker, thought coach, podcaster, and newly published author, just to name a few of her impressive titles. She runs a private practice in her hometown of New Orleans as well as Los Angeles, flying between both places consistently while also hosting the podcast “All Things Therapy”. Lisa’s new book The Chiron Effect dives into her passion for using astrology as a tool to heal our core wounds. Although using astrology isn’t common in psychology, Lisa’s connection between the two has impressed many people, including the Dalai Lama who has endorsed The Chiron Effect.


Lisa is committed to empowering people to heal themselves through her work and the tools she provides.


Learn about how astrology might just be the tool for you to begin your healing journey while you listen in on Episode 57 of Rejuvenaging.

Bringing Disease to Ease with Dr. S K Ramesh

Ep. 59
Any doctor’s job is to analyze the symptoms of a patient, solve the puzzle, discover the disease, and then find a way to alleviate those symptoms and put a stop to the illness.Modern medicine is still to this day a crucial field in treating people and ensuring a healthier life. But, one area where scientists still have to work on is finding ways to prevent the disease instead of actually getting to the point where it needs treatment. Sometimes, providing a fresh perspective, thinking outside the box, and keeping an open mind with regards to illnesses can actually offer insights into living free of chronic diseases.My guest today, Dr. Segu Krishna Ramesh, is giving us a new way of thinking, a way of perhaps challenging some of our previous beliefs, seeing what makes sense and what doesn’t. He shares with us one more way of living our lives enthusiastically and with wellness orientation, not focusing on disease, but moving forward with our lives.Dr. S.K. Ramesh is a man who is almost intimidating in terms of his background. He has gone from being a trauma surgeon to ‘awaken’ surgeon, which is an interesting combination of things. He has a significant history of 36 years in trauma surgery, was a medical doctor, professor, and consultant in trauma surgery and orthopedic surgery. Subsequently, got a Ph.D. in wellness sciences and he is a Doctor of Science and Transformational Sciences.He has expanded his work to include a worldwide community devoted to really becoming more awakened, more enriched in their lives, and he’s really doing things you don’t typically expect from a trauma surgeon. He is a true believer, ardent preacher, and a self-taught teacher of simplicity, that will empower you to trust more in yourself and awaken your body’s potential.Tune in to Episode 59 of Rejuvenaging and listen to Dr. Ramesh’s ideas on how to help ourselves become our best version, by really being in touch with ourselves.Some questions I ask:What was your experience of being in the trauma surgery field? (04:30)How did you deal with your wife’s disease, and how do you generalize it to a theory or a concept that works for other people? (12:06)What happens when a disease occurs? How do you dovetail with traditional medicine? (20:38)From your perspective, if I want to lead my life in a way that minimizes my chances of getting a significant disease, are there some behaviors that I should be doing or that you recommend? (30:57)What are you doing these days? (36:28)In this episode, you will learn:The defining moment that led Dr. Ramesh to open up his mind to other possibilities of treating a disease. (07:10)The principles of life Dr. Ramesh learned by being a trauma surgeon. (10:30)The three realizations that every human being is supposed to do. (14:04)What our body is trying to tell us when chronic diseases occur, and how we can begin to listen to it. (17:12)The similarities between science and spirituality & why you should consider accepting concepts that are beyond science. (24:12)An experiential exercise that you can do on the spot.

Ep. 56
Since the pandemic hit the world, people have looked for ways to stay motivated and active. The internet is filled with different types of challenges, of various lengths, meant to encourage people either to pursue their passions, to stay healthy, or to support their favorite causes.I believe this trend only brings great benefits to people all over the world and we all have the potential to contribute to our own development. So today, I would like to suggest to all of you a challenge – I call it ‘The Self-Improvement Challenge’ – that I believe will help improve your overall life. I’d like you to commit a certain number of days – you can start small, and gradually extend the length – to becoming a better version of yourself every day, so that each day, before you go to sleep you can say, “I did something that made me a better person than I was yesterday.”What I’m suggesting to you in this episode is one of the simplest challenges you can take because you are the one who’s setting the rules and there’s nobody looking over you to determine that you’re following the rules that you set. But you’ll know it, and you’ll feel really rewarded if you follow through.This is the kind of challenge you can’t really lose – you can only win big, or even bigger. So, listen to Episode 56 of Rejuvenaging to learn how you can tackle the Self-Improvement Challenge, why I’m certain it’ll only help you thrive, and some ideas that will inspire you to get going and get started in this very moment!Useful Rejuvenaging Resources:Website: Dr. Ron Kaiser - Rejuvenaging: The Art and Science of Growing Older with EnthusiasmEmail: ron.kaiser@thementalhealthgym.comTEDx Talk: Aging Enthusiastically to Make the World a Better Place
