Sophie Jaffe is a founder of philosophie superfoods and co-host the show IGNTD.
Today I’m joined by an incredible physician and anesthesiologist, Dr. Ken. Dr. Ken is a Board Certified Cardiac Anesthesiologist as well as the Founder and Medical Director of Illumma. At Illumma, he conducts ketamine infusion treatment, which is becoming increasingly popular for treating chronic mental health conditions and pain syndromes.   What you may not know about ketamine is that it is a medication that has been used around the world for over 50 years and is viewed by the World Health Organization as an essential medicine. Studies have confirmed its benefits for the treatment of depression, anxiety, inflammatory pain, bipolar disorder, PTSD, and more.   What we know as ‘recreational drugs’ are being utilized more and more in a clinical setting. And when it comes to depression and other chronic mental health conditions, it is incredibly important that we are aware of the vast array of tools and options out there for us as individuals. I hope you’ll join Dr. Ken and me in this episode to learn more about the incredible therapeutic use of ketamine to see whether it is an option for you in your own journey!   IGNTD Specials: Free IGNTD Recovery Workshop 14 Days Free of IGNTD Live Online Groups Family SOS Program IGNTD Hero Nohab Program   Topics Discussed: [:35] About today’s episode with special guest, Dr. Ken!

Having recently spent three days in absolute silence, I ended up reading a lot of books. One of which was The Art of Happiness, by the Dalai Lama and Howard C. Cutler, M.D. In the book, the Dalai Lama shares how, ultimately, we all have the same goal: the pursuit of happiness. And though it may sound really simple to achieve happiness… it can get complicated, fast.   In today’s episode, I want to focus in on a specific part of the conversation around happiness,  and that is this blurred line between happiness vs. pleasure. A lot of people confuse the two, and oftentimes, end up sacrificing their long-term happiness for their short-term pleasure — especially in relation to addiction. In this episode, I’m breaking down the key components that you need to know regarding happiness vs. pleasure and how you can trick your brain into focusing on long-term happiness rather than short-term pleasure.   IGNTD Specials: Free IGNTD Recovery Workshop 14 Days Free of IGNTD Live Online Groups Family SOS Program IGNTD Hero Nohab Program   Topics Discussed: [:35] About the reading I did during my silent retreat. [2:24] What I would like to discuss with you all today regarding The Art of Happiness: happiness vs. pleasure. [3:00] The difference between pleasure and happiness. [5:05] Why making the distinction between pleasure vs. happiness is so crucial: short-term vs. long-term gain. [8:05] A big component to achieving happiness. [9:45] A technique to help you aim for long-term happiness rather than short-term pleasure. [11:09] My challenge to you.

F*ck shame: this is a phrase that comes up so often for us and really gets at the heart of what we’re all about. So, of course, we had to have a whole month dedicated to it! We are going to hit up shame in many different ways so we hope you’ll join us this month for this powerful theme.   And sticking right to our theme of f*ck shame, today we’re focusing on body image, our relationship to our bodies, and body positivity. Joining us is Dana Suchow, an expert in the field of body image, self-love, and eating disorder prevention. She is an award-winning speaker, educator, and coach who works with parents, teachers, and caregivers by giving them the tools that they need to raise children who love their bodies and themselves!   Dana is so incredibly knowledgable about this topic and we are so excited for you all to listen to her story about struggling and overcoming body image difficulties. She covered a lot of ground in this episode. She talks about body confidence, eliminating old programming, toxic masculinity, how shame shows up around your body image, how to talk to yourself and your children to improve body image, the importance of body diversity in the media, body neutrality vs. body positivity, and so much more.   IGNTD Specials: IGNTD Live Online Groups (Free for 14 Days) IGNTD Subscription ($43 per month & 30 days of Live Groups included)   Topics Discussed: [:01] About our IGNTD Subscription.
