Fresh Start with Dr. David

​The ”​Fresh Start with Dr. David​”​ Podcast Fresh Start with Dr. David (Refresh, Reset, Reboot, & Rejuvenate Your Mind, Spirit, Soul and Psyche) The ”Fresh Start with Dr. David” Podcast is a podcast where I introduce and chat about a variety of topics related to mental health and wellness, psychiatry, medicine, health, wellness, diet, nutrition, life, life direction, life purpose, self improvement, self development, self awareness, insight, personal growth, personal and professional development and evolution, technology, American living and a host of other topics. During ”Fresh Start with Dr. David” Podcasts, I share my approaches to mental health and wellness, the concepts that I use across my practices, and topics of interests from my current books and any upcoming books. My reason for starting the ”Fresh Start with Dr. David” Podcast is my firm belief that the current mental health and wellness system in the United States is really not a system. And, It’s BROKEN. It’s a group of frequently unaligned and unconnected parts that usually fail to synchronize, leaving patients lost, confused and exasperated. In addition, unfortunately, our healthcare system & our mental health system are so married to the pharmaceutical industry that it’s practically impossible to separate them from one another. Our healthcare and mental health care systems are generally focused upon addressing the symptoms of problems, conditions & disorders, but they often fail to address the underlying root causes of those symptoms, which also frustrates and exasperates patients. In our mental health realm, patients are often prescribed medications that are not only tolerance building & habit forming, but directly & quickly lead to dependence & addiction, and unwanted side effects. In many cases, these patients are never informed about the potential of these medications to lead to tolerance, habit formation, dependence & addiction. Physicians are first asked to ”Do No Harm”, then tasked to ”Do Good.” However, when you marry that with industries (insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies, etc.) whose primary goals are profit, then it leads to a number of conflicts of interest that the healthcare industry does not seem to want to address. In the present age, it seems to lead to the belief and policies that support it that the answer to all of life’s problems is to simply take a pill. I don’t believe that people need more pills. I believe that people need better answers and real solutions that get to the root causes of their problems & symptoms. I also believe that the medical education & training systems in America are broken, to the detriment of patients. I believe that many children, adolescents & young adults are not receiving the basics & foundations to be resilient in an ever complex & competitive world that increasingly requires more & more in order for resilience & success to be created. Finally, I believe that in many ways humanity needs to return to the basics of human life & decency, including the concepts, characteristics, traits, values, beliefs & foundational principles that define the best of who we are as a species.

Fresh Start with Dr. David - Season 2 - Episode 28 - Diabetes Drugs, COVID19 (COVID Brain Fog & Clotting Proteins), The Season of Fall, Healthcare Insurance, & The See Saw Principle
Fresh Start with Dr. David - Season 2 - Episode 28 -Diabetes Drugs, COVID19 (COVID Brain Fog & Clotting Proteins), The Season of Fall, Healthcare Insurance, & The See Saw Principle (Equalizer Principle) (Proportionality Principle) (Plastic Surgery Principle) This Podcast Episode is all about Diabetes Drugs, COVID & Other Viruses (Study on COVID Brain Fog and Clotting Proteins), The Energy & Power of Fall, and Healthcare Insurance (FSAs vs. HSAs [Investment Rollover], PPOs vs. HMOs, etc.), Correlations between Diabetes Drugs and other things (SSRIs Depression, Stimulants for ADHD, Marijuana for Anxiety, Cigarettes/Vaping [Nicotine] for Anxiety/Boredom, EtOH for Anxiety/Relaxation). I also discuss The See Saw Principle (Equalizer Principle) (Proportionality Principle) (Plastic Surgery Principle). You don't want to miss this episode where I chat about Jillian Michaels, one of Americans Top Trainers, and what she and others are sharing about the dangers of using Diabetes Drugs just to lose weight.   Ozempic injections, which contain the active ingredient Semaglutide, function as a GLP-1 receptor agonist. GLP-1 receptor agonists mimic the actions of the metabolic hormone glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1). By stimulating insulin secretion, GLP-1 receptor agonists can help lower blood sugar levels, making them beneficial for individuals with diabetes. One of the effects of GLP-1 receptor agonists like Semaglutide is the slowing of gastric emptying. This means that food stays in the stomach for a longer period, leading to increased satiety and a reduced desire to eat. This aspect of Ozempic injections can be helpful in weight management and promoting weight loss.  However, it is important to acknowledge the existing controversy surrounding GLP-1-based therapy, including Ozempic injections. Studies and research have examined the potential risks associated with GLP-1 receptor agonists, such as the development of malignant diseases like pancreatic carcinoma and thyroid cancer.    The most common include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, stomach pain and constipation, according to Novo Nordisk, the company that makes both Ozempic and Wegovy. But patients may also experience serious side effects such as pancreatitis, gallbladder problems and kidney failure, it warns. Ozempic® may cause serious side effects, including: Possible thyroid tumors, including cancer. Tell your health care provider if you get a lump or swelling in your neck, hoarseness, trouble swallowing, or shortness of breath. These may be symptoms of thyroid cancer. In studies with rodents, Ozempic® and medicines that work like Ozempic® caused thyroid tumors, including thyroid cancer. It is not known if Ozempic® will cause thyroid tumors or a type of thyroid cancer called medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) in people.  Do not use Ozempic® if you or any of your family have ever had MTC, or if you have an endocrine ‘Ozempic Butt’ 'Ozempic Face' 1. Nausea and vomiting Nausea is the most common semaglutide side effect. Up to 20% of people taking it for Type 2 diabetes reported nausea in clinical trials. Nausea is even more common if you’re taking the higher-dose version for weight loss. Vomiting tends to be less common than nausea. You’re more likely to experience these side effects with higher doses of semaglutide. That’s why your healthcare provider will raise your dose slowly over a few weeks to minimize these effects. For most people, these side effects should improve over time as your body gets used to the medication. Eating smaller meals, avoiding high-fat foods, and remaining upright after you eat can also help manage potential nausea and vomiting from semaglutide. But if these side effects are accompanied by severe stomach pain that may or may not spread to your back, get medical attention right away. This could be a sign of pancreatitis, a rare but serious side effect. More on that later. 2. Diarrhea Diarrhea is another common semaglutide side effect. Around 9% of people taking it for Type 2 diabetes and 30% of people taking it for weight loss reported diarrhea during clinical trials.  Similar to nausea and vomiting, you’re more likely to experience diarrhea with higher doses of semaglutide. As mentioned above, your healthcare provider will slowly raise your dose over time to minimize this side effect. Constipation can also happen, but it tends to be less common than diarrhea. 3. Stomach pain Mild stomach pain is another common stomach-related side effect of semaglutide. Similar to nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, this should subside over time. Using the tips listed above can also help minimize this side effect.  Severe stomach pain can be a sign of other side effects, like pancreatitis or gallbladder problems (like gallstones). Contact your healthcare provider right away if this develops. 4. Fatigue Fatigue is a common side effect of Wegovy, affecting 11% of people taking it in clinical trials. Fatigue was also reported in less than 5% of people taking Ozempic, and it wasn’t reported at all with Rybelsus. Semaglutide works for weight loss by making you feel less hungry. And eating fewer calories may cause you to feel more tired. Feelings of fatigue should subside as your body adjusts to potential changes in your diet.  5. Changes to your face Some people taking semaglutide may notice less fullness in their face. In fact, this phenomenon has been referred to as “Ozempic face.” While Ozempic isn’t approved for weight loss, some people taking it lose weight. And facial fat loss is one potential effect of fast and significant weight loss. This can also result in looser skin and wrinkles that are more noticeable. Keep in mind the benefits of semaglutide on your health outweigh these effects. But if you’re concerned about possible changes to your appearance, talk to your healthcare provider. They can suggest treatments for lessening the appearance of wrinkles or increasing fullness in your face. 6. Rebound weight gain Semaglutide is a medication that’s intended to be taken long term. Wegovy, specifically, is approved for chronic weight management. As long as you’re taking the medication, weight loss is typically sustained. But if you stop taking it, it’s possible to gain some (or all) of the weight back. Semaglutide should be paired with a healthy diet and regular exercise. Establishing habits that you can maintain long term is important if you decide to stop semaglutide. If you’re concerned about regaining weight after stopping semaglutide, talk to your healthcare provider. They can help you weigh the pros and cons of stopping or continuing treatment. 7. Low blood sugar Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) isn’t very common if you’re taking semaglutide on its own. That’s because it works by telling your body to release insulin in response to a meal specifically.  But taking semaglutide with other blood sugar-lowering medications, like insulin and sulfonylureas, raises the risk of hypoglycemia. So, your healthcare provider may need to change the dose of these medications when starting semaglutide.  If you have Type 2 diabetes, it’s important to regularly check your blood sugar levels to help avoid hypoglycemia. You may be advised to have an emergency glucagon or glucagon-like product to raise your blood sugar quickly if severe hypoglycemia happens. 8. Vivid dreams Some people taking Ozempic or Wegovy have reported experiencing vivid or abnormal dreams. Experts don’t know for sure why this may happen. And it’s not entirely clear yet if this side effect is linked to semaglutide itself. Keep in mind that several other medications can cause vivid dreams. If they start happening while you’re taking Wegovy or Ozempic, let your healthcare provider know, especially if they’re interfering with your sleep or quality of life. They can help determine the potential cause and next steps. 9. Hair loss Losing weight quickly can result in hair shedding or loss. This may be one of the reasons why some people taking Wegovy or Ozempic are reporting hair loss during treatment. During Wegovy’s clinical trials, 3% of people receiving the medication reported this side effect. This type of hair loss, called telogen effluvium, is usually temporary. Hair loss you may be experiencing from Wegovy or Ozempic should subside as your body adjusts. Keep in mind this may take several months.  Since these medications can also affect your appetite, it’s important to make sure you’re getting enough vitamins, minerals, and protein. If you’re not, this can also contribute to hair loss. Your healthcare provider can help you ensure you’re getting adequate nutrition during treatment. 10. Pancreatitis Although rare, pancreatitis has been reported with semaglutide. If it happens, it can be life-threatening. Seek immediate medical attention if you develop severe abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting, and/or jaundice (yellowing of skin and eyes).  Let your healthcare provider know before starting semaglutide if you have a history of acute pancreatitis. They may recommend a different medication for you. 11. Gallbladder disease Gallbladder disease, including gallstones, is possible with semaglutide, but it isn’t common. It was reported in less than 2% of people taking it in clinical trials.  Symptoms of gallbladder problems include upper stomach pain, fever, and jaundice. You may also notice clay-colored stools. Let your healthcare provider know right away if these develop.  Talk to your healthcare provider about ways you can avoid gallbladder problems while taking semaglutide. This may include dietary changes and routine physical activity. 12. Kidney damage Studies have suggested that semaglutide may have some kidney benefits if you have Type 2 diabetes. But in rare cases, kidney damage has also been reported. This is more likely if you have severe nausea, vomiting, and/or diarrhea leading to dehydration.  Kidney damage is also more common if you already have kidney problems. Taking medications that cause you to get rid of excess water, like diuretics (water pills), also puts you at risk.  Your healthcare provider may monitor your kidneys if you’re experiencing a lot of stomach-related side effects. Let them know right away if you’re not urinating very much or at all, or notice swelling in your arms or legs. 13. Allergic reactions Severe allergic reactions to semaglutide are rare, but possible. Call 911 or get immediate medical attention if you have swelling of the face, tongue, or throat, or shortness of breath after your dose.  Mild allergic reactions can include itching, rash, or redness at the injection site. Stopping semaglutide isn’t always necessary with mild reactions. But make sure to still tell your healthcare provider about your reaction.  Don’t use oral or injectable semaglutide if you’re allergic to any of their ingredients. And there’s a chance you could have an allergic reaction to semaglutide if you’ve had a reaction to a medication in the same class. 14. Thyroid tumors Semaglutide has a boxed warning (the strictest warning) from the FDA about a risk of thyroid C-cell tumors. This is because animal studies found that rodents developed thyroid tumors when exposed to GLP-1 agonists. However, human studies have yet to confirm this risk. Still, you shouldn’t take semaglutide if you or your family have a history of medullary thyroid cancer or multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN) type 2. Contact your healthcare provider immediately if you notice signs or symptoms of thyroid cancer. These include a lump in your neck, and neck or jaw pain.      Here are five things to expect when you stop Ozempic. 1. Your Appetite Will Return People eat less when they take Ozempic because semaglutide slows the digestion, keeping food in the stomach longer and increasing feelings of fullness, and because it triggers changes in the brain that decrease hunger and blunt the feelings of satisfaction that can accompany eating, the FDA notes. “I used to be able to eat half a pizza, but now on semaglutide, I take a few bites and feel full,” says David Shafer, MD, an attending plastic surgeon at Lenox Hill Hospital and Northwell Health in New York City who takes semaglutide. “If I miss a dose, my consumption increases as I lose the effect of feeling full.” But that rapid feeling of satiety produced by semaglutide goes away as soon as people stop taking Ozempic, says Kushner. “Once Ozempic is stopped, all of the benefits from the medication cease,” Kushner says. “If the patient experienced a reduction in appetite and body weight that resulted from consuming a lower-calorie diet, the individual’s appetite will increase back to baseline when the medication is stopped, making it harder to follow a lower calorie diet.” 2. You Will Regain Weight Because people stop feeling full and their food cravings return when they stop Ozempic, weight gain is likely, Kushner says. Whether people take Ozempic for obesity or type 2 diabetes, medication should be just one piece of a treatment plan that also includes healthy lifestyle changes like eating a balanced diet and getting plenty of exercise. “Ozempic should always be taken along with making healthy lifestyle changes in diet and physical activity,” Kushner says. “These changes should be continued even after stopping the medication and can help maintain some of the health benefits seen with body weight and blood sugar control.” 3. ‘Ozempic Face’ Will Go Away Rapid weight loss spurred by Ozempic can change the skin and reduce fat volume all over the body, including in the face. Many people who shed dramatic amounts of weight with Ozempic find their face can take on a gaunt, shrunken, and dehydrated appearance that’s been dubbed “Ozempic face.” These changes can be addressed with injectable facial fillers administered by a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon, says Joshua Zeichner, MD, an associate professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. Stopping Ozempic will also reverse facial changes caused by the drug. “Ozempic face will go away if you gain back the weight you lost from the drug,” Dr. Zeichner says. “The face can get full the way it used to, just as you can regain the weight in your body.” 4. Side Effects Will Subside Ozempic has other common side effects, including nausea, constipation, vomiting, heartburn, gas, headache, and dizziness. Not everyone experiences side effects, and they may be mild for others. They can also be avoided or minimized by taking the ramp up in dosage more slowly from the lowest starter dose of Ozempic to the higher dose that’s typically used for ongoing treatment, Kushner says. How you eat — and what you eat — also makes a difference. “Side effects can be greatly mitigated by reducing dietary fat, consuming smaller portions, and not skipping meals,” Kushner says. Anyone who experiences side effects but still sticks with treatment would see those side effects go away when they stop taking Ozempic, Kushner adds. 5. Blood Sugar Climbs For people with type 2 diabetes who take Ozempic to manage their blood sugar, halting treatment may cause blood sugar to rebound to around pre-medication levels, says Beverly Tchang, MD, an endocrinologist and an assistant professor at Weill Cornell Medicine in New York City. “Since Ozempic treats the chronic disease of diabetes, people can potentially see a worsening of their diabetes when they stop Ozempic,” Dr. Tchang says.  Because Ozempic helps people eat less, a halt to treatment may lead them to consume more calories and eat larger portions, leading to an increase in blood sugar, Tchang says. And even if people manage to maintain the eating habits they developed while on Ozempic, their blood sugar might still rise when they stop treatment because the drug boosts the production of insulin, a hormone involved in blood sugar control. These realities are among the reasons many doctors have expressed concern over Ozempic shortages potentially driven by people using the drug to shed unwanted pounds. These shortages are harming people with type 2 diabetes who need the drug for blood sugar control. The good news is that people with diabetes still have other medicines they can take instead of Ozempic, including several in the same family of medicines as semaglutide, Tchang notes. Ozempic is what’s known as a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist, a class of drugs that also includes liraglutide (Victoza), dulaglutide (Trulicity), and exenatide (Bydureon).     Check out, Subscribe & Rate the "Fresh Start with Dr. David" Podcast, now on YouTube, Apple Podcasts, iTunes, Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, Google Podcasts, Amazon Music, Alexa, Audible, and all other major Podcast Platforms!   YouTube https://www.youtube.com/@freshstartwithdrdavid   Apple Podcasts https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/fresh-start-with-dr-david/id1647991154   Spotify https://open.spotify.com/show/5yZNF8pBpHY3cf4qDc87yX   Pandora https://www.pandora.com/podcast/fresh-start-with-dr-david/PC:1001058465   iHeartRadio https://www.iheart.com/podcast/338-fresh-start-with-dr-david-109141615/   Audible https://www.audible.com/pd/Fresh-Start-with-Dr-David-Podcast/B0BVJBG52P   Amazon Music https://tunein.com/radio/Fresh-Start-with-Dr-David-p3502923/   Get Your Fresh Start NOW!

A person with healthy boundaries can say “no” to others when they want to, but they are also comfortable opening themselves up to intimacy and close relationships. 7 Types of Boundaries You May Need   1) Physical Boundaries 2) Sexual Boundaries 3) Emotional or Mental Boundaries 4) Spiritual or Religious Boundaries 5) Financial and Material Boundaries 6) Time Boundaries 7) Non-Negotiable Boundaries What is an example of a boundary? Rivers, mountain ranges, oceans, and deserts can all serve as physical boundaries. Many times, political boundaries between countries or states form along physical boundaries. For example, the boundary between France and Spain follows the peaks of the Pyrenees Mountains, while the Alps separate France from Italy. A boundary is a border and it can be physical, such as a fence between two properties, or abstract, such as a moral boundary that society decides it is wrong to cross. If you have no sense of boundaries, you probably annoy people sometimes by getting too close to them or talking about inappropriate topics. What does a person with no boundaries look like? Individuals who lack appropriate boundaries often struggle with telling others how they feel (for fear of rejection or ridicule), struggle with feeling burdened by how others perceive them (due to a desire to people-please), strive to make everyone happy with their performance (at work, in school, at home, etc.), and ...Jul 14, 2015 What Are Healthy Boundaries? https://www.scienceofpeople.com/how-to-set-boundaries/ Healthy boundaries are the limits you place around your time, emotions, body, and mental health to stay resilient, solid, and content with who you are. These empowering borders protect you from being used, drained, or manipulated by others. You can set boundaries around: Emotional energy Time Personal space Sexuality Morals and ethics Material possessions and finances Social media  Boundaries can be set with: Family  Friends Romantic relationships Coworkers Strangers Though they aren’t as blatantly clear as a fence, wall, or “no trespassing” sign, healthy boundaries communicate to others what you will and will not tolerate. In short, boundaries empower you to take charge of your life. Why Do You Need Boundaries?  Personal boundaries are at the root of a fulfilled, balanced life. Without them, people can quickly lose themselves in their work, relationships, familial obligations, or service to others. They can even wind up being exploited or taken advantage of by people who do not respect them.  These borders help define what you are willing to say “yes” to and what you decide to say “no” to. They give you a sense of agency and sovereignty over your decisions.  Like an internal compass, boundaries can all start with a “gut feeling” that tells you when you have the time or energy to devote to something versus when you need to say “no.”  Good boundaries free you to live life on your terms.  Healthy Boundaries vs. Unhealthy Boundaries  People with solid boundaries tend to have lower levels of stress and higher self-esteem because they prioritize their well-being.  On the other hand, people without boundaries may inadvertently let others take advantage of them.  They may lack self-confidence, a sense of purpose, or a clear identity to guide them through life. Counselor Dr. Dana Nelson writes, “in work or in our personal relationships, poor boundaries lead to resentment, anger, and burnout.” People without boundaries can be easily persuaded into things they don’t want to do because they may be acting out of guilt or obligation rather than self-love.  Signs of Healthy Boundaries Potential Signs of Unhealthy Boundaries Protect yourself from getting taken advantage of Vulnerable to being “used” or taken advantage of Own your time  Over-commit your time to others and leave little time for yourself High self-esteem and self-respect  Lower self-esteem and critical inner dialogue Prioritize time for yourself  Give a lot of their time to other people You only take on responsibilities you can handle; you don’t overcommit yourself Feeling exhausted or burnt out by overwhelming commitments and responsibilities Authentically say “no” if you don’t have the energy or capacity to do something Have a hard time saying “no” Set limits for others without feeling bad  Feel guilty for expressing boundaries Strong sense of identity and direction Change yourself to fit in with different people Take care of your own problems and understand that you cannot heal other people’s issues for them  Take on other people’s problems as your own You clearly communicate your needs and wants; you prioritize your self-care  You put other people’s needs and wants before your own Suppose you’re tired of living your life for other people or find yourself exhausted by all the commitments you’ve made to others. In that case, it’s time to set some boundaries and reclaim the power of your time, energy, and mental well-being.  5 Effective Ways to Set Healthy Boundaries Setting boundaries comes down to communication. Communicating your needs and desires is the most vital step toward defining your limitations and living a more liberated existence.  Visualize and Name Your Limits The first and most important step to defining your boundaries is to make them concrete. Boundaries are often confusing and abstract because they feel invisible in our daily lives.  However, by visualizing your boundaries and writing them down, you can get much more clarity on where you want to draw the line between you and other people. Set aside some time to reflect on the state of your life. Ask yourself: What is causing me unnecessary stress or discomfort? What do I look forward to each day versus what do I dread? Who or what gives me energy? What areas of my life do I feel exhausted by? What makes me feel safe, supported, and valued? Draw a large circle on a blank piece of paper. Inside the circle, write everything that makes you feel safe and stress-free.  For example: A daily routine Words of affirmation from your partner Hugs from your loved ones Leaving work stress in the office Clear communication from your loved ones Freedom to decide how you spend your free time Saying “no” to energy vampires  Autonomy over your body On the outside of the circle, write down anything that causes you discomfort, pain, annoyance, or emotional exhaustion. These are the people or situations pushing the limits of your boundaries.  For example: Your mom telling you what to do with your life Working after-hours on projects instead of prioritizing your self-care Worrying about what certain people think about you  Your cousin asking to borrow money Your coworker constantly dumping her relationship problems on you at lunch Your roommate eating your food from the fridge Your boyfriend/girlfriend controlling who you talk to or hang out with Strange people at the bar touching you without asking Acquaintances asking deep or intimate questions about your life This circle represents a visible manifestation of your limits. It’s time to take anything outside the circle and determine how you can define a boundary that will prevent or eliminate those issues in the future.  Openly Communicate Your Boundaries One of the biggest mistakes people make is setting boundaries in their minds but not openly sharing them with the people in their life. Sometimes people assume that you should know their boundaries. But if they didn’t clearly communicate where they’ve drawn the line, how will you know when you’ve overstepped it?  This can seem daunting and scary, but it can feel like a significant relief once you get it out of the way. As social psychology researcher Brene Brown says, “clear is kind, unclear is unkind.” Once you know your boundaries, you have to communicate them.  Take a deep breath, gather your resolve, and assertively express your needs in a kind, direct way. Here’s how: HOW TO CLEARLY COMMUNICATE BOUNDARIES Time Boundary “I can only stay for an hour” or “If you’re going to be late, please let me know ahead of time.” Energy Boundary “I don’t have the energy to help you with [their request] right now, but maybe [this resource] can help.” Emotional Dumping “I understand you’re having a hard time and I want to be there for you, but I don’t have the emotional capacity to listen right now.” Personal Space Boundary “It makes me feel uncomfortable when you [touch or action]. If you can’t respect my space, I’ll have to leave.” Conversational Boundary “This is not a topic I’m willing to discuss right now.” Comment Boundary “I don’t find those types of comments funny.” Mental Boundary “I understand we see things differently and I respect your opinion, but please don’t force it on me.” Material Boundary “Please ask me first before borrowing my [possession]” or “I would appreciate it if you didn’t touch my [material thing].” Social Media Boundary “I don’t feel comfortable with you posting that on Instagram.” Read more at: https://www.scienceofpeople.com/how-to-set-boundaries/ Donate to the "Fresh Start with Dr. David" Podcast!  You can donate as little as $1 per month!   https://patron.podbean.com/freststartwithdrdavid Schedule Your 1st Appointment here: https://heal.me/practitioner/david-a-wright Check out my practice websites here: https://www.mlcoga.com https://www.atlantacoaching.com https://www.atlantahealthandwellness.com https://www.atlantasmallbusinessincubator.com #growthmindset #growth #healing #health #healthylifestyle #healthyfood #healthcare #HealthyLiving #healthyeating #happy #happiness #evolve #resilience #resilient #greatness #selfimprovement #selfdevelopment #abundance #abundantlife #abundancemindset #prosperity #Prosper #growing #empowerment #empower #empowered #success #successmindset #successtips #holistichealth #holistic #holistichealing #holisticwellness #holisticliving #holisticlifestyle #integrativemedicine #integrativehealth #integrativenutritioncoach #integrativewellness #integrativenutritionhealthcoach #integrativenutritioncoach #functionalmedicine #functionalnutrition #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthsupport #mentalwellness #lifestyle #lifecoach #lifecoaching #lifechanging #lifechanger

Rivers, mountain ranges, oceans, and deserts can all serve as physical boundaries. Many times, political boundaries between countries or states form along physical boundaries. For example, the boundary between France and Spain follows the peaks of the Pyrenees Mountains, while the Alps separate France from Italy. A boundary is a border and it can be physical, such as a fence between two properties, or abstract, such as a moral boundary that society decides it is wrong to cross. If you have no sense of boundaries, you probably annoy people sometimes by getting too close to them or talking about inappropriate topics. What does a person with no boundaries look like? Individuals who lack appropriate boundaries often struggle with telling others how they feel (for fear of rejection or ridicule), struggle with feeling burdened by how others perceive them (due to a desire to people-please), strive to make everyone happy with their performance (at work, in school, at home, etc.), and ...Jul 14, 2015 What Are Healthy Boundaries? https://www.scienceofpeople.com/how-to-set-boundaries/ Healthy boundaries are the limits you place around your time, emotions, body, and mental health to stay resilient, solid, and content with who you are. These empowering borders protect you from being used, drained, or manipulated by others. You can set boundaries around: Emotional energy Time Personal space Sexuality Morals and ethics Material possessions and finances Social media  Boundaries can be set with: Family  Friends Romantic relationships Coworkers Strangers Though they aren’t as blatantly clear as a fence, wall, or “no trespassing” sign, healthy boundaries communicate to others what you will and will not tolerate. In short, boundaries empower you to take charge of your life. Why Do You Need Boundaries?  Personal boundaries are at the root of a fulfilled, balanced life.

Fresh Start with Dr. David - Season 2 - Episode 17 - Immigrant Struggles in The United States with Special Guest Eden
Fresh Start with Dr. David - Season 2 - Episode 17 - Immigrant Struggles in The United States with Special Guest Eden   This is an episode that I did with a Special Guest, and client, Eden, about her struggles to remain in this country after graduating from college and having her temporary visa lost by the United States Postal Service, and helping her to be able to remain in this country (vs. having to fly back to Israel).   If you know of anyone who might be able to help Eden, who's looking for a job as a graphic illustrator, artist, tattoo artist, or in some other artistic or administrative capacity, please contact me so that I can reach out to Eden.   If you know of anyone who may have expertise in immigration law, or who may have contacts at the Consulate, Embassy, Immigration Offices or Department, United States Postal Services, or who know of a law firm, legal aid institution, synagogue, temple, or rabbi who may be able to help her remain in this country, please contact me.   Tune into this episode to listen first-hand to Eden and I discuss what happened to her and to come up with solution to her challenges to legally remain in this country.   Did you realize that after graduation from school (University, etc.), after applying for a temporary visa, legal immigrants only have 90 days to find employment to remain here?   That's right, 90 Days?  It's tough for an American Citizen who graduated from college to find a job in 90 days (considering processes associated with applying, interviewing, HR activities, etc.), much less for an immigrant.  Isn't this just setting most immigrants up to fail to stay here legally?   The ”Fresh Start with Dr. David” Podcast is a podcast where I introduce and chat about a variety of topics related to mental health and wellness, psychiatry, medicine, health, wellness, diet, nutrition, life, life direction, life purpose, self improvement, self development, self awareness, insight, personal growth, personal and professional development and evolution, technology, American living and a host of other topics.   My reason for starting the ”Fresh Start with Dr. David” Podcast is my firm belief that the current mental health and wellness system in the United States is really not a system. And, It’s BROKEN. It’s a group of frequently unaligned and unconnected parts that usually fail to synchronize, leaving patients lost, confused and exasperated. In addition, unfortunately, our healthcare system & our mental health system are so married to the pharmaceutical industry that it’s practically impossible to separate them from one another.   Donate to the Fresh Start with Dr. David Podcast:   In order to help to stop generational mental health issues in America, I'm also starting a non-profit organization to help adolescents, teens and young adults deal with life circumstances in healthier and more constructive ways by providing them with life coaching and cognitive behavioral tools to help them cope and develop the mental muscles required to thrive and be resilient in an increasingly challenging world.  Feel free to email me at mlcofgreateratlanta@gmail.com for details about this project.   Donate to the "Fresh Start with Dr. David" Podcast!  You can donate as little as $1 per month!   https://patron.podbean.com/freststartwithdrdavid     Schedule Your 1st Appointment here:   https://heal.me/practitioner/david-a-wright   Check out my practice websites here: https://www.mlcoga.com https://www.atlantacoaching.com https://www.atlantahealthandwellness.com https://www.atlantasmallbusinessincubator.com #growthmindset #growth #healing #health #healthylifestyle #healthyfood #healthcare #HealthyLiving #healthyeating #happy #happiness #evolve #resilience #resilient #greatness #selfimprovement #selfdevelopment #abundance #abundantlife #abundancemindset #prosperity #Prosper #growing #empowerment #empower #empowered #success #successmindset #successtips #holistichealth #holistic #holistichealing #holisticwellness #holisticliving #holisticlifestyle #integrativemedicine #integrativehealth #integrativenutritioncoach #integrativewellness #integrativenutritionhealthcoach #integrativenutritioncoach #functionalmedicine #functionalnutrition #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthsupport #mentalwellness #lifestyle #lifecoach #lifecoaching #lifechanging #lifechanger

In addition, unfortunately, our healthcare system & our mental health system are so married to the pharmaceutical industry that it’s practically impossible to separate them from one another.   Donate to the Fresh Start with Dr. David Podcast:   In order to help to stop generational mental health issues in America, I'm also starting a non-profit organization to help adolescents, teens and young adults deal with life circumstances in healthier and more constructive ways by providing them with life coaching and cognitive behavioral tools to help them cope and develop the mental muscles required to thrive and be resilient in an increasingly challenging world.  Feel free to email me at mlcofgreateratlanta@gmail.com for details about this project.   Donate to the "Fresh Start with Dr. David" Podcast!  You can donate as little as $1 per month!   https://patron.podbean.com/freststartwithdrdavid Schedule Your 1st Appointment here:   https://heal.me/practitioner/david-a-wright Check out my practice websites here: https://www.mlcoga.com https://www.atlantacoaching.com https://www.atlantahealthandwellness.com https://www.atlantasmallbusinessincubator.com #growthmindset #growth #healing #health #healthylifestyle #healthyfood #healthcare #HealthyLiving #healthyeating #happy #happiness #evolve #resilience #resilient #greatness #selfimprovement #selfdevelopment #abundance #abundantlife #abundancemindset #prosperity #Prosper #growing #empowerment #empower #empowered #success #successmindset #successtips #holistichealth #holistic #holistichealing #holisticwellness #holisticliving #holisticlifestyle #integrativemedicine #integrativehealth #integrativenutritioncoach #integrativewellness #integrativenutritionhealthcoach #integrativenutritioncoach #functionalmedicine #functionalnutrition #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthsupport #mentalwellness #lifestyle #lifecoach #lifecoaching #lifechanging #lifechanger   growthmindset, growth, healing, health, healthylifestyle, healthyfood, healthcare, HealthyLiving, healthyeating, happy, happiness, evolve, resilience, resilient, greatness, selfimprovement, selfdevelopment, abundance, abundantlife, abundancemindset, prosperity, Prosper, growing, empowerment, empower, empowered, success, successmindset, successtips, holistichealth, holistic, holistichealing, holisticwellness, holisticliving, holisticlifestyle, integrativemedicine, integrativehealth, integrativenutritioncoach, integrativewellness, integrativenutritionhealthcoach, integrativenutritioncoach, functionalmedicine, functionalnutrition, mentalhealth, mentalhealthmatters, mentalhealthawareness, mentalhealthsupport, mentalwellness, lifestyle, lifecoach, lifecoaching, lifechanging, lifechanger
