In this episode: 

In today’s episode Kefi L!fe will catch up with Yianna Papadeas, BS, BSN, RN, for a ground breaking conversation pertaining to Mental Health and Wellness. 

News flash, if you have a brain, you have a mental health.  Time to break the stigma and build healthy practices for unifying the entire person in mind, body, and soul.  The emphasis of this episode is to shed light on mental health and how to improve mental wellness beginning with three simple qualities, which you will discover during this episode. 

Questions that come up today: Has corona virus affected the mental health of the community? What are some initial ways to practice mindfulness? Does love have anything to do with mental wellness?

There is discussion regarding the link between mental health and faith.  RN Yianna Papadeas is also the founder and creator of the account DYNAMI, a Mental Health Service.  This service explores the link and also introduces you to Patron Saint Gerasimos of Kefalonia. 

Finally, there is a profound symbolism with the DYNAMI logo, and it has to do with turning your greatest moment of weakness into your greatest moment of strength. 

Mindful health for you and me during this episode of Kefi L!fe.

In this episode: 

Globally recognized clinal nutritionist and Media Expert, Stella Metsovas, appears in this episode of Kefi L!fe to shed light on great digestive health.  The conversation reveals how the Gut Health Biome seed was planted in Stella’s life and how her athletic career was a propitious omen leading to the study of food science. 

Stella says that food is the ticket to gut health, particularly the Mediterranean diet rich in plant fiber. 

Are you aware that humans should eat 40 grams of fiber a day, but instead we only consume about 15 grams?  Think about polyphenols for your fiber intake, and can you trust all health information you read?  What about green juices, what’s the skinny on these drinks?

You will love hearing about Stella’s cookbook Wild Mediterranean, a journey into gut health with the Mediterranean diet, including 250 health citations. 

Today it’s all about …Love, Live Wild!

November 18, 2021

38. Seasonal Wellness Tips to Guard Your Wellbeing during the Weather Transition of DOYO

Seasonal Wellness is rooted by living in the season, and not resisting it.  This seasonal transition is referred to as DOYO in ancient Chinese Medicine, and here to tell us more is Doctor of Chinese Medicine, Christiana Cagnoni. Christiana will shed light on the 5 elements of DOYO focus on the spleen, stomach, centering self, family, and home.  You’ll learn what is the color of this transition period.  Which foods should you be eating, and if your lips are cracked, what could this mean? 

An important thing to note for Seasonal Wellness is the aspect of digestion. It’s beneficial to give your digestion tract a rest. Eat like a king at breakfast, lighter at lunch and consume as you’re a pauper at dinner.  Remember, movement is your best friend.  Stagnation is the number 1 killer of people, as it does not allow the organs to function optimally. 

Time to center yourself with the help of Christiana Cagnoni.
