Unprocessed negative experiences become stored in your body as emotional blockages that can prevent you from aligning with your true self. Tim Coleman is a former personal trainer who is dedicated to liberating people from the physical manifestations of their negative energy. As a therapist, health coach, and EFT practitioner, Tim helps his clients get to the root cause of their stress, finally process their trauma, and overcome the ailments that have developed as a result of emotional clutter. Today he breaks down EFT and trauma processing so that you can apply the same principles in your own life. He and Nimai discuss how you can locate and relieve your own blockages, understand your real desires, and finally get out of a cycle of triggers.

You’ll hear the strategies and techniques he applies to clients that help them overcome addiction, eliminate phobias, and finally live according to who they are -- in spite of their past.    “What you’re doing is eliminating those triggers, because the triggers are what’s going to hold you back.

How to Deal with Acne with Vegan Bodybuilder Brian Turner
We’ve all had experience with insecurities. Whether it’s about your body, your smile, or even something that isn’t physical, most of us have tried to hide parts of ourselves we don’t like. But what happens when your insecurities are tied to the most visible part of you? Brian Turner is a vegan bodybuilder with a reach of almost half a million followers on YouTube and Instagram, but he wasn’t always so comfortable putting himself out there. Brian started dealing with acne at 15 and was soon suffering from four or five cysts on his face at a time. His painful experience with cystic acne first led Brian into a severe depression and he was eventually prescribed the powerful acne treatment drug, Accutane. Brian used fitness as an outlet and addressed his acne head-on, documenting and sharing his experience online. When he was not seeing any substantial results from high doses of Accutane, Brian looked to his eating habits. He saw great improvements after removing meat and dairy from his diet; he started eating more whole foods, and ultimately made the switch to veganism. Today, his skin is clear and he is stronger than ever.   “If you don’t have a passion, you miss out on a lot of life” - Brian Turner   If you like this episode Screenshot it Post it on your Instagram Story or Twitter Tag Nimai, Bianca, and Generation V!

How Adam Sud Overcame an Adderall Addiction, Lost 200 Pounds, and Learned to Love Himself
Over 20 million Americans over the age of 12 have some sort of addiction. The sale of prescription drugs has increased by over 300 percent since 1999. Almost three out of four overdoses are caused by prescription drugs which are more than heroin and cocaine overdoses combined. What's worse is that these drugs can be easier to obtain than the aforementioned illegal drugs. 6.8 million people who struggle with addiction also struggle with some sort of mental illness. Adam Sud, our guest today, had weighed over 320 pounds and was severely addicted to drugs and fast food. He was also afflicted with Type 2 Diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, anxiety disorder, sleep disorder, and suicidal depression. His downward spiral culminated with an overdose as a result of a suicide attempt while he was alone in his filthy hoarder-like apartment. He checked into rehab and with the help of his parents and a plant-based diet, he began the journey that led to a remarkable recovery not only in reversing his chronic diseases and losing nearly 200 pounds but living a happy and healthy life of purpose. Now he is helping others discover how to find joy in owning their health and their well-being, and in developing self-love. Adam is now a diabetes and food addiction coach for masteringdiabetes.org. Just a warning. In this episode, we discuss topics such as addiction and suicide which can be triggering to some. If you or someone you know struggle with these conditions.
