I am beyond reason, don’t speak to me.” (17:53) (Dr. Mark)“I started standup a while ago but only got into it seriously a couple of year ago. And, I originally used it as a personal growth tool.” (20:05) (Mia)“You’re gonna have a hard time convincing me that people won’t like great food if it’s put in front of them.” (29:13) (Dr. Mark)“One of the things that really is big for people is the role of mental health and food. And, people don’t understand that their mood, their depression, their anxiety, all that can be related – even ADD – can be related to what they’re eating.” (34:44) (Dr. Mark)“When you create a regenerative farm, which is essentially integrating animals and plant species using animals in a way that actually regenerates through their poo and their pee and they’re running around and chewing on the grass, it actually builds soil. And also, it holds water and it requires less irrigation. So it’s a win-win-win and it produces better quality food.” (44:22)“So we had to figure out how to build a bridge between us so that he understands that if I need a moment to go and figure it out, it’s not because I’m running or withdrawing. It’s because I want to come back with a really open heart and a clean space so we can really deal and heal with whatever it is.” (56:02)LINKS MENTIONEDBetter!

#83: Breaking Through Depression, Perfectionism, and People Pleasing with Mia Lux
Dhru Purohit Podcast
If you struggle with feeling hopeless, sad, or otherwise mentally fragile, you’re not alone. Depression is officially at epidemic levels, dramatically impacting hundreds of millions of lives. With its symptom-based medicine approach, conventional medicine tackles depression completely wrong. Rather than determine what actually creates that depression, many doctors immediately reach for their prescription pad. But what if there way another way to treat this epidemic?On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host, Dhru, talks to Mia Lux, a stand-up comedian, personal growth junkie, former high-school teacher, and recovering lawyer. Mia originally got into stand-up comedy as a way to learn how to fail—a sincere effort to overcome the perfectionist practices that kept her in perpetual burnout as a lawyer and high school teacher. In the process, she wound up working in the personal development space, originally as Director of Content for global transformational education company Mindvalley, and eventually stepping into her role over the past 5 years as host and facilitator, specializing in top wellness/personal development events around the world.Mia always kept a toe in comedy, and found that laughing is just more effective than lecturing. Her newest project, The Conscious-ish Show, is the baby of both worlds: a Late Night style talk-show that takes on topics that really count—health, self-love, depression, sex, spirituality, and more. It is Mia’s mission to make the world's most powerful ideas more accessible by making them truly enjoyable; if you're laughing, you're learning!In this episode, Dhru and Mia take a deep dive into the topic of depression. Mia openly shares her own personal struggle with depression, and the importance of understanding the emotional, psychological and physical causes of it. They discuss the best ways to support someone who is depressed, and some of the key ways to begin to heal. They also talk about understanding what’s really underneath perfectionism, how to get out of your own way, and how to stop people pleasing. Mia also explains how healing laughter and comedy can be.In this episode, we dive into:-Mia’s personal story of depression and being suicidal (2:31)-What can be done about depression (9:31)-What to do or not do if someone in your life is depressed (12:14)-Fear of failure (20:01)-What’s underneath perfectionism (20:42)-How to stop people pleasing (27:34)-The top regret of the dying (31:50)-How to get out of your own way (33:37)-The healing power of laughter and comedy (37:25)-How to intentionally and mindfully create an extraordinary life (46:31)-Self-love and understanding the language you use with yourself (47:36)-Lucid dreaming (49:01)-Where to learn more about Mia (59:55)For more on Mia Lux, be sure to follow her on Instagram @consciousish and @mymialux, and on Facebook @consciousish and @mymialux.

Eating unhealthy food and trying to improve your health is like mopping up the floor while the sink is still overflowing—it just doesn’t work! But it can be hard to decide what we really should be eating for optimal health, considering the diet wars (Paleo or vegan?), the non-stop exposure to sugary foods in every market isle, and clever marketing by Big Food to make us think things are good for us when they really aren’t. Instead of getting overwhelmed and defeated, I like to take a lighter look at food and focus on solutions. That’s what this week’s episode of The Doctor’s Farmacy is all about, where I’m actually the guest. My talented and funny wife Mia Lux interviews me on her show, The Conscious-ish Show, and we focus on taking the many confusing ideas about food with a grain of salt and approaching wellness with humor and action.Mia merges the playful and the profound, drawing on her experience as a stand-up comedian, personal growth junkie, and recovering lawyer. For over 5 years, Mia has been an international host, comedian, and facilitator, specializing in top wellness/personal development events around the world. Last year, I was thrilled to have her help host my Feel Good Summit. It is her mission to make the world's most powerful ideas more accessible by making them truly enjoyable. I personally love seeing how she inspires others to take a positive spin on life. Here are more of the details from our interview: Why food is the most powerful drug on the planet (16:41)How I came to understand the power of food in creating health or disease (17:42)Two success stories of patients whose health was turned around by using food as medicine (18:38)Why we are so confused about what to eat (21:27)So what should we eat? (22:40)How whole grain flour acts like sugar in your body (23:52)Is meat good or bad for your health? (24:42)Why food policy matters and why our food policies are so bad (27:27)How Big Food takes away our personal choice (31:06)What are the possibilities for changing our food system (33:30)Watch all six episodes of The Conscious-ish Show at https://www.consciousish.com/.
