Ep. 124: 4 Essential Steps for Getting Your Relationship Back on Track | with John Gray
Today we jump into part 2 with our expert guest John Gray. If you missed part 1, make sure you go back and listen to last week’s episode.   Last week, John talked about how environmental additives impact us hormonally and affect men and women’s relationships, but these aren’t the only things adding complexity to the modern relationship. Personal technology, such as cell phones, as well as the platforms we access through them, have begun to impact relationships in a huge way.   Life is speeding up. We are constantly overstimulated. Our brains are wired to be seeking out new and different stimuli. Our motivations have changed from just the fulfillment that comes from personal interaction, which is creating an unconscious loneliness inside of us.   If you have high dopamine stimulation, the neurons in the brain will begin to disappear. You start to rely on high stimulation just to feel normal. All the things that used to provide pleasure, personal interaction, affection, sharing, connection, now they feel flat and boring.   The same problem applies to men and online pornography. When a man fantasizes about a woman online, he gets a huge rush of dopamine, which is actually higher than real, intimate sex, where there are several other hormones involved. This makes the thought of sex less exciting.   When abstaining from ejaculation for just a week, the testosterone in a man’s system will double. Too often, the body is deprived of hormones and nutrients it needs. Sex is a very big part of a long term relationship, but if your hormones are out of balance, it will be hard to experience the fulfillment of that.   So, with all of these complexities in modern society and relationships, how can we get these relationships back on track? There are 4 essential steps that are absolutely necessary: Stop trying to change your partner. Don’t blame each other for the way you are. If you aren’t happy with the way you are, then what you are doing isn’t working. You need to start from there, and stop sabotaging your relationship. Take responsibility for your own happiness. Regardless of what your partner does or doesn’t do, find your happiness. Become self-reliant. Understand what your partner’s primary emotional needs are. Now that you have taken the time to focus more on yourself, you can give more to your partner from a place of fullness. You get more in return when you start giving more. But if you aren’t getting what you need, simply ask. Do not give with the expectation of things in return, but know that your needs are important as well.   There is clearly a lot of nuance to these, particularly in the different ways that men and women need to communicate and have their needs met. The book, Beyond Mars and Venus, goes into detail on all of these differences, and how to follow these steps in various situations.   The Biggest Helping: Today’s Most Important Takeaway   “Men, if you’re finding you are getting angry, stop talking. If you can listen more, that’s better, but you might have to take a time out. It only gets worse if you talk when you’re angry because it throws your hormones out of balance. What you can give to women is to ask more questions, listen more before speaking (because when you talk you make it worse), and keep your words short and simple. Don’t try to change her.   “For women, it’s such an automatic thing when you’re feeling stressed out to give orders, complaints, point out things. Recognize if it’s a big issue, talk about it, if it’s a little issue, overlook it, talk to a girlfriend. Let him be your hero. Take time to appreciate him.”   --   Thank you for joining us on The Daily Helping with Dr. Shuster.

Ep. 123: Modern Relationship Skills for Today’s Complex World  | with John Gray
Today our expert guest is John Gray, the author of the most well-known and trusted relationship book of all time, Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus. USA Today listed his book as one of the top 10 most influential books in the last quarter century.   John helps men and women better understand and respect their differences in both personal and professional relationships. His approach combines specific communication techniques with healthy nutritional choices that create the brain and body chemistry for lasting health, happiness, and romance.   In his career in marriage counseling, he had some very counter-culture ideas around relationships. The culture wanted men and women to be treated equal, and that meant treating them as if they were exactly the same. But there are a lot of differences between men and women.   When we expect others to act and think exactly as we do, there is a lot of room for misinterpretation. Approaching his counseling sessions with the ten most common misinterpretations between men and women in relationships, he found that all his clients got better very quickly.   After 9 years following this approach, John put these thoughts into his first book, Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus. The book was perfect for getting very quick results because it pointed out some of the most obvious flaws in our relationships and how to approach them.   Today, there is more gender confusion than ever before. We have so many hormones and pesticides in our food that causes the hormones of both men and women to become out of balance. Once again, we think everyone should be exactly the same, and we’re not. This was the idea behind Beyond Mars and Venus.   When the meat you eat has hormones added to it, what that does for a man is lower testosterone. Testosterone is the primary hormone that creates positive mood in men. When women get hormones from their food, it lowers their estrogen supply.   Our coping mechanisms for stress are very different for men and women. Women find more value in talking about their problems and getting them out in the open. Men tend to cope better by ignoring or temporarily forgetting about their problems.   The world has changed, and we need to change with it. Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus was written over 25 years ago to help us understand where we are coming from and misunderstanding each other. Beyond Mars And Venus is teaching us where we need to go, because as a society we are becoming out of balance.   --   Thank you for joining us on The Daily Helping with Dr. Shuster.

Ep. 122: Overcoming Your Obstacles & Becoming Beyond Average | with Robert Owens
Today our expert guest is Robert Owens, radio and TV personality, mountain climber, keynote speaker, minister, philanthropist, triathlete, and father of five, to name a few of his exploits. He is also the fittest 66 year old in the world. For more than 25 years, Robert has been speaking before audiences as large as 50,000, from San Diego to Moscow, on motivational and leadership topics, with past clients including Navy Seals, the New York Jets, Baltimore Ravens, South-African Parliament, the Vietnamese Department of Foreign Affairs, and many others. He continues to routinely take on challenge and see others what can be achieved in their own lives.   Robert Owens was adopted as a kid. He had flat feet and knocked knees, and had to wear corrective shoes to counter it, but he couldn’t run and play with the other kids. He always wanted to fit into something, and eventually he started swimming on the water polo team in high school.   His head coach ended up being the US Olympic swim coach, so he was very strict with his swimmers. Robert always thought he was just an average swimmer-- everyone else on his team had been swimming for longer, and they were all incredibly talented. But his coach told him that hard work can beat better talent, and he taught him to work in smarter ways to tackle things that should have been impossible.   This line of thinking eventually got him into the US Air Force as a Special Ops repair rescueman. After he left the military, he started smuggling literature in and out of the Soviet Union during the Cold War, all while going to school for a degree in theology.   Robert never wanted to be laughed at again, he didn’t want kids to pass him up on their team, and this drove him to be an overachiever. He wanted to do things that people said you couldn’t possibly do.   How can some people take action to live this kind of life? You have to be comfortable with being uncomfortable, because everything you’re dreaming of is on the other side of discomfort. You have to change the people you spend time with. Look at your five closest friends: They will give you a hint at where you’re headed. And you have to work with mentors, teachers, or coaches to bring out the potential inside of you. You cannot tap into it yourself.   One thing that holds people back in their journey is anxiety. Navy Seals deal with this regularly, and Robert has a couple of tactics that they use to get through their anxiety and keep acting: Breath control: your emotions are attached to your breathing. If you can control your breathing, you can control your emotions. Taking a deep breath in for four seconds, breathing out for four seconds, and repeating that 3 times will get your mind out of “fight or flight” mode instantly. Positive self talk out loud: Tell yourself positive affirmations, such as “I can do this.” Micro-goals: Can I do this for the next 30 seconds? After a minute or two, that emotion will have ceased, and you can refocus.   In Robert’s new book, Beyond Average, he breaks down the craft and the skills that he developed to build a better life from an average childhood, to live beyond average. It’s about teaching people how to overcome, and encouraging them to let someone bring out of them what they would like to have brought out.   The Biggest Helping: Today’s Most Important Takeaway   “They need to find people who will see them for who they really are and help them break out of the rut that they’re in. That their best days are ahead, but their decisions are determining their destiny. If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got. You’ve got to break out and ask for help, whether it’s eating, drinking, education, raising kids, you’ve got to find someone that can encourage you and help you go to the next level.”   --   Thank you for joining us on The Daily Helping with Dr. Shuster.
