Theta Healing with Special Guest Amber Frelin, Theta Healing Practitioner, Fitness & Nutrition Coach

Theta Healing uses applies Kinesiology (muscle testing) techniques to gain insight into the limiting belief systems or "blocks" of one's subconscious mind. With the subconscious mind running up to 98% of a person's thoughts and decision-making process it's not surprising that people are not always seeing the results they desire in their lives. Until we get the subconscious mind on board with what someone is consciously wanting to experience, the person will continue to get the same results.

Consuming as Little as Possible with Gary Golding

In this episode we have Gary Golding back for a second time to discuss his passion about ‘Consuming as Little as Possible” (for good health and to make the environment a better place) and his journey on Discovery Channels’ hit show – Naked and Afraid.  

To learn more visit Gary at www.tarzanoflosangeles.com

A comment from a listener from Gary Golding's first appearance on the show:

This is so important to me as I realized that how I was living and chronic pain could have limited me severely in my profession and in my active lifestyle. Although I was fit and active before listening to Gary’s last interview, I now feel more healthy on many more levels than just fitness. His advice on intermittent fasting and health has helped me put the pieces together to make me a more well-rounded, holistically healthy person. 

Thanks Gary!” A Healthier View Listener, Jasmine Brown

The Power of Essential Oils with Special Guest Margie Skyles, Nurse & Essential Oils Specialist

In this Episode Beth and Margie talk about the therapeutic powers of essential oils and how to use them.

Meet Margie: I am a wife, mom and GmaMy passion has always been to serve and educate others, which is why I chose nursing as my career. I truly had the best clinical experiences and don't regret a single one. However, I understand now that my career as a nurse was in preparation for what I have discovered as my true passion; supporting and educating people about Young Living Essential Oils. It all began in April of 2014.

During a ladies' Bible Study, several of the girls were sharing about some of the uses of essential oils. To say the least, I was very skeptical. Several weeks later the term allergies came up, and they got my attention. My husband, Lane had chronic sinus issues, so I decided that it was worth a shot. The results were astounding and within 1 week, we became loyal essential oil users.  No one forgets their first experience with Young Living essential oils. I can honestly say that one of the greatest joys of this "Oily" journey has been the amazing people that I have had the pleasure to meet, work and grow with, and love on. However, I thoroughly enjoy learning about the chemical constituents of essential oils, the amazing science behind our oils, the profound links between God's word and how the use of oils is still as relevant now as it was over 2,000 years ago. In addition, creating toxic-free items for our household and teaching others how to do the same.  I consider it an honor.

"Benefits of Good Nutrition and Vitamin C IV Therapy with Guest Derron Ethridge, Wellness Professional

In this episode of A Healthier View we will be talking with wellness professional, Derron Eldridge, about the benefits of good nutrition and the hot-topic of Vitamin C IV Therapy. Abundant in a variety of fruits and veggies, plus found in skin care serums and anti-aging products alike, vitamin C is a powerful micronutrient and crucial part of the diet. From reversing skin aging to reducing cholesterol levels, studies have found that vitamin C benefits many aspects of health, from the inside out.  A deficiency in this important vitamin can take a serious toll on your body, causing symptoms like impaired immunity, gingivitis and easy bruising. Conversely, getting enough may help ward off illness and infection, enhance iron absorption, and even reduce the risk of some conditions.

Need more convincing on why this may be one of the most important vitamins in your diet? Listen to Derron’s interview to learn more about the potential vitamin C benefits, plus how you can make sure to get in your daily dose.  For more information on this topic contact:

Hello there and welcome to my little part of A Healthier View!!

When I was a kid I was encouraged to do things that made me happy. Aside from turning me into someone who doesn’t like to do the dishes; it also made me question, what actually makes me happy? And that is the foundation on how I live my life: I seek my passion, refuse to settle, build the life I want to live. And most importantly pray and put God first, always!!!

I went to Purdue University and am now a health and wellness professional in the corporate world. If you had told me fifteen years ago that I would be speaking in front of large groups of people I would have cried and laughed at the same time. But that is exactly how I prefer to live my life: facing my fears head-on, challenging myself and every step of the way making sure I believe that my life is worthy of greater things.

I love dogs (especially pugs), hoodies, Raggedy Ann dolls, The Indianapolis Colts, and wide views of the mountains.  I have amazing friends whom I am fiercely protective of and will run in any direction with them. I dislike heavy metal music, people selling themselves short and loud gum chewers.

I find happiness through appreciating my life and the love God has given me; I know that He’s given me this chance to tell my story and help others in any way I can. I keep it real, I know the struggles life can throw your way and I feel like it is a blessing to be able to help anyone who wants to put in the effort.

When I’m not being a health & wellness manager, you can find me hiking, biking, doing charity work, watching Joaquin Phoenix movies, helping others achieve optimal health, walking barefoot on the grass, or jumping in a river at 6 AM …because if you aren’t jumping in a river at 6 AM, you’re just crazy. ☺

That’s me in a nutshell; was a goofy kid, went to college, found a gig in Corporate America & grew roots, I love the Lord and I found my passion.

Don’t be afraid to drop me a note in the comments or shoot me an email at ahealthierviewpodcast@up2meradio.com I hope to share ideas with the healthier view audience and keep active for as long as these legs will carry me.

I’m glad you’re here.

Meet Co-Host Dr. Scott Clitheroe

My story begins in Houston Texas where I was born into a happy, loving family. I am the youngest of 3 kids to wonderful parents. My mom was a stay-at-home mom who was always there for us as we pursued our goals. My dad was a successful dentist who was very popular with his patients and colleagues. From them, I learned the beauty of selfless, unconditional love and the value of hard work and perseverance.

Though my brother and sister pursued dentistry like our dad, I was interested in medicine from a young age. One of my heroes growing up was my pediatrician. His kindness and easy-going confidence impacted me from a young age. He inspired me to pursue a life in medicine.

My college experience at The University of Texas in Austin was fantastic. I met and made lifelong friends. I majored in biology/premed. I was also a cheerleader. I realized the importance of exercise in my life during these years. It was not only beneficial to my body, but also my mind and spirit.

Medical school at The University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston was a challenging four years. I’d never worked so hard in my life. I made more amazing friends that inspired me and kept me going through the challenges.

Internal medicine training was completed at The University of New Mexico School of Medicine in Albuquerque. There, I worked long hours training to become an internist that could handle the complex patient. “The Land of Enchantment”, as New Mexico is also known, allowed me to experience the world of alternative and complementary medicine for the first time. The influence of the Native American culture was an amazing addition to my education. It was here that I realized that the mind-body connection was so important to a person’s overall health.

Since the late 90’s, I’ve practiced hospital medicine in Austin, Texas. Over the years, I have realized that, although I enjoy treating very ill patients in the hospital, I also enjoy helping folks get healthier and stay out of the hospital! In addition to being a hospitalist, I am also the medical director for a volunteer clinic for refugees. I also am a medical director for a local hospice. I have been involved in occupational telemedicine. It was here that I was fortunate to meet Beth and dive even more into the world of wellness. She has taught me a ton and also inspired me with her passion for promoting healthy living.

In my spare time, I love being a husband to a wonderful wife and father to 3 amazing kids. I love to run and swim. I enjoy downhill skiing, fishing, and boating.
