Dr. Richard Davidson on The Emotional Life of Your Brain


The Emotional Live Of Your Brain

Buy The Book

This long awaited book by a pioneer in brain research offers a new model of our emotions- their origins, their power, and their malleability.

Body Talk Host Mimi Stoneburner interviews Dr. Richard Davidson. Dr. Davidson  has been at the forefront of brain research for over 30 years. Now he shares us an entirely new model for understanding our emotions, as well as practical strategies we can use to change them.

Davidson has discovered that personality is composed of six basic emotional "styles," including resilience, self-awareness, and attention. Our emotional fingerprint results from where on the continuum of each style we fall. He explains the brain chemistry that underlies each style in order to give us a new model of the emotional brain, one that will even go so far as to affect the way we treat conditions like autism and depression. And, finally, he provides strategies we can use to change our own brains and emotions-if that is what we want to do.

Written with bestselling author Sharon Begley, this original and exciting book gives us a new and useful way to look at ourselves, develop a sense of well-being, and live more meaningful lives.

28 February 2012  Dr. William Lassek and Dr. Steve Gaulin on Why Women Need Fat

Dr. William Lassek and Dr. Steve Gaulin on Why Women Need Fat

Mimi Stoneburner interviews both doctors on the groundbreaking discovery that shows why women need fat to lose fat.

Why do women struggle so much with weight? Can women ever lose weight and keep it off?

In this research-driven and counterintuitive book, an anthropologist and a public health doctor team up to answer those questions. Blending anecdotal evidence with hard science, they explain how women's weight is controlled by evolution-but more important- they reveal how a change in diet three decades ago may be the reason women today are bigger than their grandmothers were.

Explaining why fat (both in our diet and in our body) is crucial to long-term health, the authors show not only why women tend (and need) to get heavier after having their first child, but also destroy cultural myths like "all fat is bad for you." Providing a plan that can help any woman achieve a natural, healthy weight- without dieting- Why Women Need Fat not only gives women the tools they need to shed weight, but also a better understanding of why those last five pounds seem impossible to lose.

 Overcoming Adrenal Fatigue


Kathryn R. Simpson, MS, was an executive in the biotech industry when she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Research led her to discover that her symptoms were caused by multiple hormonal deficiencies-including low adrenal and thyroid hormone levels. She resolved all of her debilitating symptoms by rebuilding her adrenal function and supplementing low hormone levels.

Simpson received a bachelor's degree from Ohio Wesleyan University and a masters of science degree from the University of Southern California. She founded a specialty hormone clinic to treat hormone imbalance and diseases such as multiple sclerosis, lupus, and fibromyalgia. Today, it is dedicated to ongoing endocrine research and education. Simpson is CEO of Cerulean Pharmaceutical, which researches and develops therapies for the treatment of endocrine-related disorders. She is author of The Perimenopause and Menopause Workbook, The MS Solution, and The Women's Guide to Thyroid Health, and lives in Los Olivos, CA, with her husband, Robert, and three sons, Tyler, Kyle, and Myles.
