1:09police are welcome to our program hi dr.
1:12mongolia thank you so much for having me
1:15oh my pleasure please let me ask you at
1:17a significant stay of 7 days in the
1:20hospital and it was a starting point for
1:23you to better health and tell us a
1:25little bit about that experience you
1:28know interestingly enough i actually set
1:31out to get into the best shape of my
1:32life and what led to me getting to the
1:35best shape of my life actually landed me
1:37in the hospital because I end up getting
1:39into a horrible position but it started
1:41with me simply one day waking up saying
1:43i need to be in better shape I was in
1:47pharmaceutical sales and you know we
1:49entertain a lot of physicians in
1:50pharmaceutical cells and over that time
1:53I gained weight and I needed to lose
1:54about 20 pounds and I lost weight i was
1:57it within three months i lost actual
1:59about 25 pounds within three months was
2:01in great shape at that point and just
2:04really at the at the peak of me being in
2:07in the best shape of my life but over
2:10about a period of a year and a half I
2:12heard about these things
2:13call competitions you’ve heard of the
2:15figure the bodybuilding competitions and
2:18it just sounded great this was back in
2:192007 and i said i want to do that i
2:22didn’t know what that really meant it
2:24I just do I saw these people on stage
2:26and I was working out so I set a goal to
2:29do a competition
2:30well little did I know that the stresses
2:33that came with doing competitions and
2:36not understand the type of rest i would
2:38need would take my body to a different
2:40point and what that looks like his
2:42minimizing the the number of calories
2:44you know you’re in a calorie deficit
2:46training overtrading to a point to get
2:50your body to lose weight
2:51these are all the things I needed to do
2:52and I take what I do very seriously feel
2:54like with anything else I wanted to do
2:56great at this but i also was working a
2:59full-time job in pharmaceutical sales
3:02I was a single mother at the time and I
3:04was working my way up in management and
3:07at the same time just a daily things
3:09that come of life and I didn’t know this
3:11at the time but it put my body into a
3:13stress point and so instead of being in
3:16the best shape of my life i ended up
3:18taxing my body to a point that I started
3:20having respiratory issues and when I
3:23would go to the doctor because I
3:25physically look great you can look at me
3:28and you would say what is wrong with her
3:29she’s in great shape
3:30however internally my body was breaking
3:33Dale but the doctors couldn’t find
3:35anything I should know we’re not like
3:37you say you’re having a hard time with
3:38you say you’re having a hard time
3:39breathing like just during the day like
3:41I work you hard time breathing while you
3:43were working out or like when did you
3:44when did you have that at any moment I
3:48guess I started having respiratory
3:49issues it could just randomly be at any
3:52moment during the day and what that
3:55looked like it I was not diagnosed with
3:57asthma had never had any issues but I
3:59simply couldn’t breathe but when I would
4:01go to the doctor every sign about looked
4:04ok and i had but I could talk and
4:06something I cannot breathe so for a year
4:09and a half i was there was no diagnosis
4:11the doctor thought maybe you’re just
4:12stressed out but I physically couldn’t
4:15breathe but they took my bottle sighs
4:17everything looked great and so I was in
4:21and out of the hospital for about a year
4:22and a half and i want to point this out
4:24because I think something that is
4:25important for the audience
4:27to understand is just like you asked the
4:29question what was going on I knew that
4:32there was the issue but the doctors
4:34couldn’t find any issue a test and I
4:36also knew that every month when I had my
4:38menstrual cycle my breathing issues got
4:40worse and even when I pointed that out
4:43the doctors would say no there’s no
4:44correlation and this was in 2007 but if
4:47you if you google right now
4:49respiratory issues particularly even
4:51with asthma and menstrual cycles and
4:53hormonal changes you will now see that
4:55the data is out here so it at that time
4:58the doctors thought something is wrong
5:00with you there’s nothing going on here
5:03but I knew that there was a correlation
5:04so basically after a year-and-a-half ago
5:08through all these respiratory issues and
5:10because mentally I still felt like I
5:13could continue to execute everything I
5:15was doing I would go to the hospital get
5:18a breathing treatment get sent home with
5:20medication antibiotic maybe you have a
5:22sinus infection but what I felt better i
5:24would go back to the same habits staying
5:26up late you know exercising all the
5:29things that kept me going back into this
5:30rebound state and so it came to a
5:33boiling point i ended up the last time i
5:35went to the hospital instead of just
5:36going to the emergency room getting the
5:38treatment getting sent home the doctor
5:40looked at mr. you’re fine
5:41he didn’t even give me a treatment
5:43because physically he thought you look
5:45like you’re absolutely ok we just put
5:47you we just tested your oxygen on the
5:49pulse machine
5:51I don’t know what you call that which I
5:52just like is the machine that measures
5:54repulse posts on the pole summer thank
5:57you very much and my oxygen said it was
6:01that in a percent he said you’re fine
6:03but at that moment that was the first
6:04time in years that I knew for a fact
6:06there was no way i could leave this
6:09something is wrong i was totally into it
6:11that moment so the doctor said we’re
6:12going to take your oxygen through your
6:15well it just so happens the oxygen level
6:18came back at sixty percent wow wow so
6:22now for the first time here believing
6:23you for the first time they’re believing
6:25me and to think that I would have lost
6:27my life because it took the hospital
6:30that the doctors there seven days to get
6:33my loves to get back to appoint they
6:35were functional enough just to release
6:37me and we don’t know how long I was
6:40walking around
6:41that way you’re really pleased you’re in
6:43there for a whole week at that point but
6:45this whole ordeal is going on for a year
6:46and a half now so this is this is a real
6:49ordeal and this is really affecting you
6:51this was truly affected me to the point
6:54that of course I was afraid to go out
6:57the house I didn’t know what I would
6:58have another breathing issue i was
7:00literally at one point I was tired of
7:02trying to breathe and I didn’t share
7:05that with anyone but i was like i am so
7:07tired of this
7:09it affected my job i wasn’t able to go
7:12to work I had to take off two months so
7:14to your point disaffected everything
7:16about my life and I had to backtrack and
7:20say what happened and i had to pinpoint
7:23what I realized over time because i
7:25didn’t get to help I needed outside
7:27through medical care that I had to look
7:30at what I had done to my body and that
7:33is when i realized that i had stretched
7:35my body to a point of starting off going
7:38from let me get in great shape to let me
7:40take my body to a point that i had tax
7:43it out and it was stressed out
7:44internally and instead of my issues
7:46showing up like some people might be a
7:48headache or heart issues my shoulder for
7:50my respiratory system so i had to make
7:52some changes in my life and make some
7:54decisions and this is how i came to the
7:56point of being in a hospital realizing
7:58that true health was not about how we
8:00just physically look at it wasn’t just
8:02about working out but it was the whole
8:04you know component of understanding how
8:06to manage stress how to manage my
8:08emotions went to listen to my body and
8:11that is what I really began to be able
8:13to truly help people get into the best
8:15health of their life now is that is that
8:18with the amazing transformation movement
8:20is about it’s sort of this overall
8:23awareness let me just explain that a
8:24little bit more
8:25absolutely as I started training people
8:28i had this wake-up call in the hospital
8:30to now help people to get healthier i
8:33started seeing people work out and lose
8:35weight and like wow and even though they
8:37didn’t look like what you would see when
8:39I did competitions on stage what you may
8:41see in a magazine these people the
8:44people stories were so amazing and so
8:47instead of doing competitions i decided
8:50to put my own competition on and i
8:52really call it more than a bit vs
8:54the competition where this whole
8:56movement to have people share their
8:58stories that go beyond the weight loss
9:00but people who had issues for example I
9:03had one woman who I actually trained she
9:06had to torn aorta she was simply
9:08terrified to work out who would not be
9:11but yet she was able to workout lose
9:13weight and work on the way that she was
9:15able to that worked along with her
9:16physicians orders and lose weight issues
9:19that I never thought I could do this and
9:20I thought I was going to die and this is
9:22a story that has to be celebrated I want
9:24to take stories like this that people
9:26overcoming their fears learning new
9:29strategies to incorporate what like
9:30healthy living that was beyond the
9:32physical aspect and i believe that is a
9:34true transformation when you transform
9:36mentally where you are breaking through
9:38emotionally overcoming your fears and
9:41that all correlated with transforming
9:43their body internally and externally and
9:45so with that I doing a bed every year
9:48that celebrates these stories and what I
9:51fell is that once people hear the
9:53stories that are bigger than the weight
9:55loss or physically how somebody looks
9:57they touch other people in the audience
9:59and that is what a real transformation
10:01movement stars when we all can share and
10:05learn and grow from each other
10:06Wow at least one like what does your
10:10typical process
10:12well first like what is your typical
10:14client like are they older or the
10:15younger are they
10:16how would you describe your typical
10:18client or is there no such such thing
10:21there is no such Clyde i have found it
10:24outside of me training mostly women i
10:27have found that whether the client is 20
10:29or 65 every woman wants to look great
10:34that is the bottom line so that for me
10:37at my age range anywhere from 20 to 65
10:40but the typical client simply what wants
10:42to come in and wants to look better and
10:45feel better but I must tell you the
10:47first thing that women say is I want to
10:49look great I want to fit in this outfit
10:51that is where it starts and then from
10:54there I helped pull out do you want to
10:56get healthier where your life do you
10:58want to improve and we build upon what
11:01most people start off with is just the
11:03physical aspect you go over like we
11:07just like a typical client or non
11:09typical client comes to what is the
11:11process look like walk us through that
11:13little so the process for me when a
11:17client comes in is understanding what is
11:20their reason for wanted to improve how
11:22they look or improve their health and
11:23that’s what i call is identifying their
11:26wide to healthy living because i found
11:28that when people really understand why
11:30they’re doing something that is when in
11:32the long run when issues starting to
11:34come up when all the challenges come up
11:37we can go back to that why and I really
11:39have people dig really deep because
11:41typically the Y is very surface
11:43I just want to fit in this two pieces or
11:45I’m going out on a date and then for 20
11:47year-old they’re going to the club but
11:48they’re doing something really fun they
11:49want to look good for what is what is
11:52that deeper thing that deeper wide
11:54touches you emotionally so once i
11:55uncovered that I didn’t like to find out
11:58what are the clients habits the current
12:01habits there you know if they’re
12:03stretched out how they eat how often
12:05they work out and from this when i hear
12:08any other underlying issues and when I
12:11say underlying issues it could be
12:12something that I hear them continue to
12:14bring up that’s a stressful situation
12:16that they don’t realize that is taxing
12:18your life but I can also say okay let’s
12:20make a plan based on all of the things
12:22that we’ve uncovered and what that plan
12:25looks like is you know healthier eating
12:28i love to take people where they are and
12:30meet that I don’t believe in this
12:31extreme we’re eating i believe this
12:33thing what are you doing
12:35that’s really good let’s pull all the
12:36good things that you’re doing and teach
12:38you how to eat from here so there’s not
12:40this drastic change and then the second
12:43thing is I really like to help people to
12:46really to reach their goal and that is
12:47they want to look better and i happen to
12:49be able to help to shape is called
12:50people to make them look better we all
12:51want to feel and look good and then the
12:53third thing is if I feel like there is
12:55some type of underlying issue that i
12:57need to refer them to whether it’s the
12:59counselor or a physician that I refer
13:02them to any lifestyle changes that they
13:05need that are beyond what i know that i
13:08do and that component together all
13:11through those components really work to
13:13get people the complete lifestyle change
13:16always share with people that it just
13:17takes time if we can get someone to see
13:20if I can get someone
13:21to stick to a program for two to three
13:22months that is the star for them seeing
13:24the physical changes and starting to
13:26feel better and they remind them every
13:28step of the way of everything that
13:31they’ve accomplished and why this feels
13:33so good to make this a lifestyle I mean
13:35these do you find it like three like how
13:37long does it take before somebody is
13:39really bought into that new lifestyles
13:41in about three months everyone is
13:45different however i will tell you and I
13:48have to let me really I want to break
13:50this up so you can really see the where
13:54I’ve had to go with this I tell anyone
13:56coming to me that nobody can tell you
13:58how much time it takes for you to get
14:01where you’re going with your health and
14:02fitness journey and I say that because i
14:04found that most people that come to me
14:07to get into better shape if they really
14:10had issues with adopting a healthier
14:13lifestyle it goes back to some emotional
14:15component and we all have different
14:17times that it takes us emotionally to
14:20get to a better place that we don’t fall
14:21backwards so I’ve had some people
14:24accomplish their goals and as quick as
14:26three months and that is the physical
14:28the physical can change very quickly but
14:31what happens if the emotional does not
14:33keep up with the physical that is when
14:35people get on that roller coaster ride
14:36and fall completely backwards so
14:39physically this was a lot of them from
14:41one side let’s go to that for one second
14:43so when used like you looking for the
14:45real why of the person right like and I
14:47do that business consulting right i go
14:49into final look what’s the thing that’s
14:52really the problem that may not be so
14:54obvious to the person right usually if
14:56it was it was obvious to them they would
14:58have solved it so they’re trying some
15:00other means of doing it so it’s probably
15:02not obvious to them so when you do that
15:04you hate
15:05let’s really go a little bit deeper give
15:07us like some what are some of the
15:08reasons that you find underlying
15:11everything that maybe you’re not so
15:12obvious to the people going through it
15:15you know the first thing that I’ve seen
15:20that most people that the two biggest
15:22issues I’ve seen first that people are
15:25not happy where they currently are but
15:27they choose to stay in a situation
15:29because they believe they need to be
15:30there and that may look like a
15:32relationship or even
15:34work and if you think about it we’re
15:37told that we need to work a job and we
15:39begin to buy into the believe I’ve
15:41trained a lot 99% of clients I’ve
15:43trained have at least for your degrees
15:45in about forty-five percent have
15:47advanced degree so when you have gotten
15:50your education and your family is
15:51believing business oh my gosh my
15:54daughter is an attorney and she’s the vp
15:57of this company
15:58those are the kind of women that I’ve
15:59trained for their in middle management
16:02we have seen that when i began to hold
16:05onto the status even if they’re unhappy
16:08and because they have not identified
16:11that there you know unhappy in this area
16:13it bitch straight plays out in them
16:17taking care of themselves and i have
16:19seen that is one of the biggest issues I
16:21really help people to uncover their why
16:23doesn’t mean that they leave their job
16:24but it may mean do i need to find other
16:26things to do outside of my job
16:29do i need to find you know express to my
16:31manager that I would love to take one
16:34additional things that make me feel
16:35valuable here but it’s really uncovering
16:37am I happy in the place that I i am and
16:40even relationships I personally went
16:42through this in a relationship where I
16:44got to a point that I was not happy in
16:47my marriage and so this is how I’m able
16:49to relate to women and I see it before
16:51they even speak it and i had to say i
16:54have to identify what is my next step
16:57although i was able to physically keep
16:58working out when I came out of the
17:00relationship i emotionally got into a
17:03much better place most people would know
17:06that i had an opportunity to grow but
17:09there was an opportunity so I see the
17:10same thing and women not being honest
17:13with where we are emotionally at work
17:16but the third thing is when someone is
17:18that something traumatic happen in their
17:19life right and for some reason as we get
17:24build this relationship they share this
17:25with me and it is something that is so
17:28tragic that they need to talk to someone
17:31because they’ve held it in for four
17:33years sometimes decades and it played
17:36out in their health just joking i mean i
17:38guess i can hear it in your voice sure
17:39you’re very interested in other people
17:42right i mean some people try to be
17:43interesting but you’re obviously very
17:46so I could see why they would open up to
17:48I could actually you know I could feel
17:50it even just coming across the the
17:51microphone like you’re a very nice
17:54person so I could totally get that when
17:56when you get to that real-life right
17:58when you get to that thing
17:59what is the reaction that they have you
18:01find that there’s a there’s an awakening
18:03moment what is that like and what does
18:04it feel like for you
18:06the first thing I see it being in people
18:11is that there is an emotion that is
18:13evoked typically it’s going to be tears
18:16you can see that the person has really
18:17owned and accepted that yes this is how
18:22i feel and getting to that feeling is
18:24the first breakthrough and for me
18:26whatever they feel and I can literally
18:29Phyllis I’m sharing this with you right
18:30now because I’ve seen some women so many
18:32women go through this is I feel that
18:35they have connected with their why and
18:38that is the hardest thing to do is to
18:40allow ourselves to fill in motion that
18:43is not feel good
18:46well well when they do that at least you
18:50find that they really once they’ve
18:52gotten that they’ve come to that
18:53realization they started to handle that
18:56that real why is it easier to keep them
18:58on the course of working out towards
19:00better health i mean is that is that so
19:02remove the obstacles out of the way I
19:04know a lot of people start diets they
19:05start working out they do it for a
19:07couple of months and then they stopped
19:09but does that change that
19:11absolutely that is the first
19:16breakthrough to be able to say we have
19:18an open line of communication
19:20I understand that someone is here to
19:22help you what I need to do just to
19:25support you
19:26so that is the first break through the
19:28only challenge that comes up is that
19:30sometimes and visits very common that we
19:32will fight
19:34that fear of making change so when it
19:38shows up
19:38I’ve been stressed on my job and I’m not
19:41happy here and it showed up again today
19:44now i have to address it in addressing
19:45it means executing strategies that I’ll
19:47share with people so for example if the
19:50person knows that I get stressed in this
19:52situation i may say acknowledge that you
19:54get stressed this is a better way to
19:56handle it you may need to communicate
19:57with the person that you are dealing
20:00with in this situation in the
20:01appropriate way but that is stressful
20:03for someone who hasn’t been used to
20:05communicating their thoughts and seeing
20:07how do we get to a resolution so it
20:09shows up it’s like now I have to really
20:11address this and that is where again the
20:14conversation continues so the next time
20:17I see them and we’re talking about how
20:19their day was if it presented how did
20:21you handle that
20:22so essentially while they’re working out
20:24either before or after even during the
20:26workout were able to kind of talk
20:28through other things that keep them
20:30moving forward and I love to teach in a
20:32way that people really don’t know
20:34they’re being taught
20:35it’s like when they wake up they’re like
20:37oh when I was at work this is what i did
20:38when i went to work out i use this
20:41strategy that you showed me i was able
20:42to do about myself and it’s almost like
20:44it’s so empowering for people to one
20:46they realize i started to execute things
20:48on my own because we have talked through
20:51different scenarios and that is why i
20:53say it takes time because it takes
20:56breaking through and like you say that
20:59is the biggest thing but what she
21:00breakthrough are you willing to put the
21:02work in to execute strategies even when
21:04it doesn’t feel good and the more you
21:06get used to executing strategies in your
21:08life the more you get comfortable and
21:10more all of this becomes a habit now
21:12I’ve got to imagine that the next step
21:14is really right making a discipline and
21:16just getting it to that it’s almost
21:17ritualistically you’re gonna get up
21:19you’re gonna do this you’re gonna work
21:20out now at least limit when you’re with
21:22somebody so I’m trying to visualize it
21:24are you as their workout you’re working
21:26out with them right now are you talking
21:28to measure doing it or you’re coaching
21:30them how does that work
21:32so depends on the client but generally
21:35speaking the first thing that I do is I
21:38do what more like an assessment so I
21:41send people performed it that they fill
21:43out what are their goals what’s stopping
21:45for reaching them and I sent to a
21:46coaching session
21:47before we even start working out so when
21:50i do groups i do it as a group session
21:52and that allows people to share women
21:54realize that they’re not alone
21:56it is an individual training more than a
21:58personal training setting i do
22:00one-on-one coaching session because that
22:02is the foundation where I understand
22:05their goals and some of the things that
22:06may hinder them and that they feel more
22:08comfortable opening up to me so that we
22:10have a starting point from there we
22:13start the workout and the workouts and
22:16the meal plan that is just a part of
22:18reaching the goals and it doesn’t mean
22:20that I’m gonna always and I never work
22:22out with people because i have to be
22:24there really make sure that they’re
22:25doing it right now so no I’m they’re
22:26doing the coaching aspect and I don’t
22:29talk to everyone because some people
22:30that’s kind of the excuse my traders
22:32talking to me and so I’m going to slow
22:34down so I kind of know who I can do that
22:36with and if we can talk
22:38so typically it may happen at the
22:39beginning or the end of a session or
22:42even if they need me outside of the
22:43session but if i can share during the
22:47session and they continue to work out we
22:49do that as well and one thing I make it
22:51a habit to do and it doesn’t happen all
22:55the time but I can tell when someone
22:57comes in and maybe that first 20 minutes
23:00they just need to talk it’s not even
23:02about the workout at that moment you’ll
23:04be surprised how many people just
23:06through having that time to talk are
23:09able to move into a different place so
23:11really being in tune and know when to
23:13share with the person and again I have
23:16to watch for these situations that come
23:18up over time so someone can start
23:20getting results in the first two months
23:21and then all of a sudden something
23:22something comes up it’s like wait this
23:24is a great learning opportunity let’s
23:26grow here and that is what we have our
23:27conversation so it’s not a set
23:29conversation is kind of based on the
23:32person and what they’re going through
23:34their life and me helping to really
23:36identify how can I help you said shows
23:38up when it shows it shows that when it
23:41shows up and that’s the beautiful thing
23:43about it you know i love that i have
23:46been in its place to understand why
23:48don’t have that velocity that training
23:51is just training people come and they
23:52work out i believe this is the complete
23:54process and I think it’s very holistic
23:56and i believe that the best position
24:00the best expert trainers anything anyone
24:04is an expert at they’re open to
24:06understanding that when things show up
24:08you’re there and you’re ready and it’s
24:10not all a linear or clear path right all
24:14right well Lisa let me so once you get
24:16part like now the person is there right
24:18there they’ve sort of handle their why
24:19they’re into working out now if you were
24:22to balance the eating water versus
24:25working out how does that balance out
24:27how much of you know now staying in
24:29shape is going to be related to eating
24:31or and how much is how much attention do
24:33we put to working out you know what I do
24:38believe in the 80-20 rule some people
24:40call it a seventy-thirty but 80 even
24:44ninety percent of really getting into
24:46shape is how a person eats period point
24:50blank I actually not even take on a
24:52client who is not open to healthier
24:54eating because it was that big of a deal
24:58the working all component is simply to
25:01aspect for me it’s about shaping
25:02sculpting help them to be better and
25:04accurate really i love to shape people
25:06make them look amazing but to your point
25:08the biggest part is the food it is what
25:12and what like what do you see I mean
25:15have you seen been doing it for a while
25:16now so have you seen eating habits
25:18getting worse than the general
25:19population and if so like what are you
25:22correcting it to like what would be
25:24considered healthy eating for somebody
25:26well i called the healthy eating habits
25:29to me of course have gone downhill
25:31you know and that is because everything
25:33now is so fast pace so most people do
25:36not even prepare their own food so often
25:39i’m having to correct the habits of
25:41eating out and eating out typically is
25:43either fast food or eating at a
25:45restaurant that has a lot of hidden
25:47elements like butter oil preservatives
25:51extra saw which is really the reason for
25:53the health issues as you know so i would
25:55say just with everything being so
25:57fast-paced now the fast-food as back and
26:01having a cook quick and do everything
26:02quickly and nothing like people have
26:04time to rest is the biggest issue that i
26:07have seen and I just kind of want to
26:09backtrack just attacked you kind of
26:11asked earlier
26:12about the food component and I want to
26:14share with you an example of when I talk
26:16about the food versus the workout what
26:19I’ve had people who never worked out or
26:22haven’t worked out in years but who ate
26:23healthy workout compared to someone who
26:26has worked out every day but they eat
26:28food right
26:28guess who runs circles around the other
26:31person with the workout no do better
26:33reading person that eats healthy you’re
26:35saying that so that is absolutely
26:37there we go how well yes i have seeing
26:42that you know nearly so like our whole
26:45show like we’re looking for is really
26:46the the holy grail of health right so
26:49one of the questions I i try to oppose
26:51to to get my guess is what would you
26:54consider to be the holy grail of Health
26:57like what is the thing that if you could
26:59just impart to anyone
27:01what would it be that would actually
27:02keep people healthy if I can impart
27:05anything to anyone that would keep them
27:08healthy is to get rid of the notion that
27:13being healthy is about physically how
27:16you look and that it is a quick fix to
27:18it and what I mean by that is i have
27:20found that if you look on Instagram you
27:24look on any social media platform if you
27:26look at magazines we see these images of
27:29people that quote look magazine perfect
27:31and whether it is air will you don’t
27:34call it whether it is but a photoshop
27:37now whether the person has died taking
27:39diet pills surgery is all quick weight
27:42loss that doesn’t translate into the
27:44habits that we have to have to be
27:46healthy internally and so we have to get
27:48rid of the notion that there’s a
27:50quick-fix there is absolutely no quick
27:52fix because somebody would be very rich
27:54off of a quick fix right now we all want
27:56to know what we all want to do it
27:57the second thing is medication
28:00understanding that when we go to our
28:03physicians if we have to take medication
28:05because we’ve got into a bad place
28:08physically with our health is that the
28:11medication simply there to help us for
28:14that moment but again this goes back to
28:16the same habits as there’s no quick fix
28:19we have to now adopt the healthy habits
28:21that get us back into the place and not
28:23take medication
28:25that that mask the situation and i’m
28:27speaking from someone who used to be a
28:30pharmaceutical rap I was the person who
28:32sold the medication to the physicians
28:34that doctor when this patient comes in
28:36please give them this medication and so
28:39I do understand that this is all about
28:41help the medication helps for that
28:43moment but what do you do to change your
28:45life and I believe that people just
28:47embrace there’s no quick fix and owning
28:50healthier habits that that is really the
28:53solution to getting into better house I
28:55just as a doctor also you know I I you
28:57know we give medications and stuff like
28:59that but over the years I’ve just like
29:01you said I’ve seen these especially that
29:04the psychiatric medications where people
29:06take them hoping that there’s a quick
29:08fix and and I’ve actually like I’ve seen
29:10a lot of people actually get worse on
29:12those medications so unless they’re
29:14really handling the real issue i have to
29:18agree with him and its really it’s it
29:20seems like it’s a change in viewpoint
29:22it’s a change in the way you approach
29:24life it’s you know i mean it is there’s
29:27no quick fixes so i went to a hundred
29:30percent agree with you you know what and
29:35here’s the deal as well to your point
29:37that we have to want to really make a
29:41change and that is the hardest part is
29:43having to own I have a problem I am
29:46unhealthy I don’t eat healthy I allowed
29:48myself to be stressed out a masking it
29:50with these problems and i think that is
29:51the biggest part you have your spot on
29:54with the issue but it’s all about our
29:56people ready to embrace the issue and
29:59tackle it head-on
30:00yeah i guess i guess we all reached that
30:02moment when we reach it as well Lisa
