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.

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.

Cancer is a VERY scary word.

It is an even scarier diagnosis. 

As of 2016, the statistics are actually mind-bendingly terrifying. At present, 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with some form of cancer in their lifetime.

YIKES!!!

In this conversation, Anthony Sanna talks with Dr. Michael Smith about what cancer is, how it happens and what to do about it. Throughout the podcast,  it becomes more and more clear that Cancer may actually be a Natural but extreme immune response. 

If you are concerned with this modern plague or know someone who has been diagnosed, please listen to this podcast or share with a friend in need. The standard model of treatment for Cancer is almost as dangerous as the disease itself, if not more so.

Listen and share, and as always, we would love to hear your comments and questions.

One of the most challenging experiences we all have is feeling stuck. 

Decisions seem impossible, creativity is a long lost friend and it seems like there is always too much to do.

At some point it gets so distracting, exhausting and oppressive that we have no choice but to make some changes. The hardest and most important decision is the first on that you actually commit to completely. 

In this conversation Anthony Sanna talks with Michael Smith about getting unstuck. This conversation will challenge and encourage you to apply some practices and tools to stay present and committed to our goals. 

00:0000:00

Life is full of surprises! Some good and some bad.

There is an old Daoist saying, "The only constant in the Universe is change."

Clearly, it is essential that we all get very good at changing directions in life. If changing directions doesn't make our lives better then we may need to take an even bigger risk and start from scratch. 

In this episode, Anthony Sanna talks with Michael Smith about starting over and rebuilding your life. Unlike our usual geek-out session on all things healthy, in this conversation we talk about how to face hard times with courage, patience, and compassion. 

Rebuilding your life may be just the adventure you need to really learn about who you really are.

Science is amazing!

Nothing has helped humanity move ahead in our evolution than science. We are lucky to be able to say that we are the recipients of the most rigorously tested, precise and powerful medications.

Unfortunately, we are also the unwitting lab rats in the greatest experiment in all of history. Can the extensive use of powerful drugs with multiple and unpredictable side-effects actually bring about long-term positive outcomes?

So far the number three killer of patients in the USA is iatrogenic death - or death by medical treatment. These deaths are profoundly unreported or misreported. It is more likely that the standard model of care is the number one killer as well.

In this conversation, Anthony Sanna talks with Michael Smith about the realities of being a patient with chronic health problems in the 21st Century.

We are respectful of the modern system of health care but are also aware that most people who are treated with the pharma-Surgical Model will eventually need to be treated for the side effects or limited effects of their drugs.

What if we embrace a new model of care? If a person needs Pharma-Surgical intervention, thank God we have that available. Once that person is stable and ready to heal on a deeper level, they would be guided through a process of discovering what is at the root of their medical condition.

00:0000:00
Evolutionary Medicine is becoming a hot topic in the world of fitness and nutrition. 

What did our early ancestor's lives look like? Was it scary or friendly? What did we do all day? 

Clearly, all of our ancestors knew what they were doing. Today, Anthony Sanna talks with Michael Smith about Evolutionary Medicine and the Four Worlds of most Indigenous cultures. Michael describes each World's way of living life together; the diet, cultural drives, lifespan, stress levels, and style of cooperation. 

If you have ever wanted to travel back through time and see how humanity came into being, sit back and enjoy the show!
