This podcast is almost entirely about Michael's recent, and deeply personal experience of an Iboga ceremony. (imagine puking, praying, healing and learning for about 30 hours straight).

Iboga is one of the strongest Entheogenic (Spiritual) plant medicines in the world.

Listen in, if you are into this kind of a thing. What Michael has to share about Spiritual Freedom and Confidence may change your life.

If you want to know more about Iboga as a medicine, please check out the following websites.

The following is about Opportunity.

Fusion Health Radio is Growing Up.

That means more and more people are finding the show. More and more comments, congratulations and questions are coming our way. And thanks for that. No, really, there are no words for how good positive feedback actually feels.

Opportunity?

Three things. First, we could use an upgrade with our recording equipment and need to get back to a weekly episode. So, we are looking into a crowdfunding opportunity to help support the show. If this goes well, we will shift the show to a video podcast. If you are a regular listener to the show, we hope you feel inspired to send a little love our way.

Second, if you are reading this and need some help, reach out and ask us to get into whatever you feel could help you. Or, contact Michael and his team for a personal consultation.

Third, Michael is a compulsive learn-oholic and teach-oholic and wants to offer you the chance to go even deeper into your journey of healing, inner peace, and self-awareness.

Below are links to the online courses that Michael is presently offering.

What is it like to live inside your mind?

Is it chill in there, or is it scary and chaotic in there?

Mindfulness and self-quantification are really big deal right now. Essentially mindfulness is a meditation on acceptance and presence. Spend a few minutes every morning and evening just appreciating the subtle qualities of being you.

Self Quantification is the use of technology to measure your state, health variables and progress if you are in some kind of training. (example is a Fit Bit wearable device)

Mindlessness is what all addicts are looking for. Mindlessness also describes a state that is not focused on the experience of your mind at all.

Ready?

In this conversation, Anthony Sanna and Dr Michael Smith take freewheeling a wondering conversation about consciousness, meditation and psychedelic plant medicines.

You may want prepare appropriately. Hint, Hint...

There are many ways to deepen your practice of Meditation, Qi Gong, Yoga or even Strength Training.

In this blogcast, Michael talks about traditional approaches to deepen your practices that come from Daoism and Martial Arts. He also shares an old story from the Sino-Japanese war about how taking your Spiritual practice for granted stops it from bringing its essential gifts into your life.

Gifts like presence, kindness, ease, humor, confidence and a relationship with your true self. 

Michael also shares his personal favorite meditation, the Awareness Frequency Practice.

Check it out!

And here is a link to that meditation program I mentioned. 10 Weeks of Applied Meditation.

If you are interested in meditation - this is for you.

This is my first in a series of Solo Blog-Casts - or short Solo podcasts.

We will return shortly with Anthony Sanna very soon.

How life works is either weird or kind of funny sometimes.

Take the erratic and unpredictable aspects of a person's mood or memory or sleep. What causes this randomness in a person? Is it stress, genetics or some scary psychiatric or neurological condition? Eeek!

Did you know that most of how you think and feel is up to the health of your gut?

What is your gut, you may ask? 

Your gut includes your stomach, intestines, pancreas, liver, gall bladder, immune system and all of the micro-organisms that live in the 'tube' of your gut. As it turns out, your gut makes most of your neurotransmitters, balances your immune system, and clears your stress hormones.

In this episode of Fusion Health Radio, Anthony Sanna gets into the details with Michael Smith about all things gut health. Especially the deep and life changing experience that can happen when you actually take the time and change your habits long enough to heal your gut.

Mold is everywhere. It is literally in the air.

Given some moisture, a lack of direct light, and a moderate temperature and you have the recipe for that weird green or black stuff that grows pretty much anywhere.

Unlike the big fuzzy stuff that grows in the vegetable drawers of the very creative or very distracted, the mold that grows in the deeper, darker and wetter places is actually a very serious medical concern. Especially the black stuff that eats drywall and plywood. Yep, I mean the evil black mold.

Toxic mold syndrome is one of the hardest things to diagnose and treat that I have ever seen. It is profoundly misunderstood by both clinicians and patients.

In this episode, Anthony Sanna talks with Michael Smith about this surprisingly common and very terrifying condition.

And, as it turns out, the mold is only the beginning of the problem.

If you have any concern that toxic mold may be affecting your health, the health of a relative or the health of a patient, be sure to check it out.

Everyone has had at least one pimple or blemish on their face. 

In a culture that is a bit (or a lot) obsessed with physical appearance, acne is a game changer for some of us. How many physically beautiful people live deeply insecure lives because of a few zits.

Then there are those of us who have acne for most of our adult lives.

Then there are those with deep and painful cystic acne that can scar your face or back for life… not fun at all!

So, what is acne? Why do so many young people have it? Why do people with other complex conditions also get acne?

The standard answer is that acne is caused by dirty pores.

If it were that simple, why is the standard medical treatment is either antibiotics or oral contraceptive hormones?

In this episode of Fusion Health Radio, Anthony Sanna sits down with Michael Smith to explore this very question.

WARNING: This conversation gets a bit yucky folks, just saying!

00:0000:00
Body memory is a funny thing. 
 
If you walk around in a cloud of hornets, expecting to be stung at any moment - you are basically having a panic attack. That is the body memory of anxiety. 
 
We have all heard the expression "butterflies in the stomach". That may be the most commonly experienced embodied state. 
 
Every extreme or chronic emotional state, injury or other cause of pain and every day of fatigue due to chronic illness is going to turn into the unique embodied state you create in reaction to any experience of overwhelm. We all do it every day...
 
Take a moment to reflect on that. And here is a question to help you reflect; "Are you aware of the volume of distress and discomfort you carry around in your posture and how you breathe?"
 
We all do this 'inner tension - outer persona' dance that can literally take over your body - your felt sense immediate and present sense of everything you feel as a body. 
 
It is not a coincidence that the most modernized nations are the most medicated nations.
 
In this episode, Anthony Sanna and Michael Smith talk about a revolutionary perspective on the treatment of insomnia, chronic pain, depression, anxiety, PTSD, post-concussive syndrome, and a host of other deeply challenging chronic conditions. 
 
This revolutionary perspective is very simple. 'What if there was a way to completely reset the nervous system, or the Mind/Body connection?'
 
What happens is AMAZING!!!
 
The practice is called sensory deprivation... Yeah, that thing where people float in tanks of warm water...
 
no light...
 
no sound...
 
There is only one way to find out what happens... Get in touch with your local float talk facility.

Some of us, honestly, most of us hit a wall in life. 
 
It is a wall of past feelings and a fundamental unwillingness to move on and continue to pretend that all is well. 
 
It is at these times when your ability to relax deeply and sleep like a baby that determine your health and your future.
 
In this episode, Anthony Sanna continues a conversation with Michael Smith about the theory and practice of Neuro-Somatic Therapy. This practice can include regular bodywork or acupuncture sessions that focus on the layers of embodied distress that are the focus of NST. The practice can also be explored on your own, as a part of a Yoga class, or as part of a soak in a sensory deprivation tank. 
 
If you are looking for a whole new way to experience your body, your instincts, your past, and the nature of human life, check out this episode or Fusion Health Radio.
00:0000:00
Stress, trauma, pain, exhaustion and chronic illness all get stored, or 'remembered' in your body. 
 
So do joy, elation, wonder and ease. The tricky part is to choose which state you feel and remember the most.
 
In this episode, Anthony Sanna talks with Michael Smith about just that. How do your day-to-day experiences and memories get stored in your body? Enter Neuro-Somatic Therapy; an evolutionary approach to the treatment of chronic pain, illness and exhaustion. Initially developed by Michael Smith, Neuro-Somatic Therapy (NST) is a hands-on approach to reducing the physical, emotional, somatic and biochemical 'memories' of the past.
 
NST turns about to be an unexpected but profound opportunity to decompress the way that the mind, heart, body and soul get stuck.
