Episode Highlights

The Problem with Health Perceptions

  • Maria shares her hardships with illnesses and her experience with Western medicine service.
  • The more she studied to cure herself, the more she saw problems with the perception of health and medicine.
  • There is a lot of marketing hype around green smoothies and the likes. It’s dangerous to think that you’re already healthy just because you eat and drink certain things. 

Five Pillars in Good Health

  • Maria hopes to share ways of never becoming sick. 
  • No one is teaching how our body works. It is why there are a lot of misconceptions about health. 
  • We need to know the foundations of medical health first. 
  • The five foundational pillars are the immune system, hormonal system, DNA, physical structure, and mental-emotional component.

Mental Health Imbalance Is the Source of Sickness

  • Ask yourself these questions every time you are not in good health: What am I doing that’s in my body’s way? What is it I’m not giving my body that it’s asking for.
  • Once you identify the culprit, you can fix the source and damage. 
  • How can we cause an imbalance in our DNA? Tune in to Maria’s answers in the full episode. 

Is Detox Helpful? 

  • Maria shares that cleansing and detox should be done in the right context. 
  • Everything needs to be in proper order, just like in business. 
  • Don’t take shortcuts towards good health.
  • The skin is the largest organ in your body, and anything you put on it goes straight to the bloodstream. 
  • How can we cause an imbalance in our DNA? Tune in to Maria Whalen’s answers in the full episode.

Learn the Way Your Body Works 

  • All of us experience some form of inflammation. We need to learn why this happens. 
  • When we want to nourish our bones, it’s not about taking more calcium. Taking calcium can actually cause more harm. 
  • We need to understand the physiology of our body as a system. 

The Illusion of Feeling Good 

  • People often disregard the foundational pillars because they already feel ‘good.’ 
  • Don’t wait until your body breaks down before you start working on your foundation.
  • Don’t claim to be in good health when you don’t know what’s happening beneath the surface.
  • When influencing your hormones, you should understand that prescriptions work differently for people. 
  • Tune in to the episode to hear about influencing your hormones! 

Interconnection of Systems

  • Your body is made up of different systems. 
  • You cannot isolate a single system; you will need to address the whole system. 
  • For example, losing weight needs to be strategic. Losing weight will cause toxins stored in fat tissue to be released into your body.

How to Become Successful

  • Becoming successful takes a lot of blood, sweat, and tears. 
  • You need to have a vision that’s big enough to push you through the pain of transformation. 
  • A lot of successful people came to be due to a sense of urgency and need. 

Common Attitude of Entrepreneurs

  • One important skill to master is smart networking. 
  • Become invested in other people’s products and events. 
  • Build strong relationships no matter what you get out of it. 
  • Make sure to provide people value before asking for anything in return. 
  • Get out there and do the work. Meet people outside of your usual circles. 

Balancing Work and Life

  • When balancing work and life, you need to look at the counterbalance. 
  • Make sure to recover in between the times of hard work. 
  • Keep yourself in check, so you don’t burn out. 

Moving Forward

  • Keep moving and failing forward. 
  • Don’t dwell on yesterday’s mistakes because you need to keep moving. 
  • When you focus on mistakes, you’ll tend to stop and get left behind.
