Transcription

Female VO: Welcome to the Wellness Revolution Podcast, the radio show all about wellness in your mind, body, spirit, personal growth, sex, and relationships. Stay tuned for weekly interviews featuring guests that have achieved physical, mental, and spiritual health in their lives.

If you'd like to have access to our entire back catalog visit drveronica.com for instant access. Here's your host, Dr. Veronica.

Dr. Veronica: Welcome to another episode of Dr. Veronica's Wellness Revolution. Today we're going to talk about how you talk, how you speak, and how it affects your life. As a wellness coach, I started my life as a doctor but now I coach because it's more effective. I realized people that are going to make or break them and one is how they talk about themselves and what they're doing or going to do. 

One of the words I give people, "Here's what you're going to go out and do next week." And they say, "Okay, I'll try." And then I say, "Wait, no. Banish that word, try." When you try to do something it means that you're never going to get there. You're never going to do it. You'll always be trying but you won't be succeeding. No, you're going to do.

And so for a lot of times... You guys hear Artemis back in the background. Of course you know. This [Unintelligible 00:01:34]. But you realize that with people you want them to do. And so one of the tasks that I work on with people is them changing their languaging, about themselves, about what they are doing or going to do. 

And so my guest here, Emily Filloramo, bemoreextraordinary.com, was in pharmaceutical sales for many years, left, switched gears. Neurolinguistic program, this is what we're talking about. Try and can, the negative self-talk that make it. But you learn this somewhere. And so we're going to talk today because in transforming your health you have to have it up here. Then you have to speak it and everything can change. It's not all about diet, supplements, and exercise. 

It's also about getting your mind and your spirit and emotions. So you guys know that that's what I'm going to tell you about because there are millions of people out there telling you what diet to go on, what to eat, and pushing and peddling your product. I want to tell you what the secret sauce is.

Today I have with me Emily Filloramo, bemoreextraordinary.com. She also has a book, How to Permanently Erase Negative Self-Talk: So You Can Be Extraordinary. Welcome to Dr. Veronica's Wellness Revolution. Let's start by saying you're in pharmaceutical sales, a beautiful, comfortable job that people aspire to. You get your car, you get the free lunches, you get the wine and dine people, it pays really well. You get the bennies going on. And you know it's so hard to get benefits these days. But some of the best ways to get taken care of is to push drugs, be a drug pusher for a pharmaceutical company. So what made you switch?

Emily: I switched because I was laid off after 27 years back in 2011. I was almost ready to retire. Another couple of years I could've gotten a big, fat pension because I had started when I was so young. And so the universe had orchestrated that 2x4 to be hit. And it was pretty painful because I had a kid. He was a freshman in college. I have three years of private college tuition left to pay so it's 180,000. And here I am I don't have my six figure job anymore.

Anyhow, I dug in and I got the courage to jump off the cliff into the entrepreneurial journey. And eventually I found my spiritual calling, as a transformational magician and leadership coach. And so I launched as a nutritionist first because that's what I studied at Cornell. Made sense, right?

What I found is that I didn't like coaching people how to eat their green beans, drink their green smoothies because they did well when they were with me but afterwards they fell off the wagon. And that's why 95% of dieters keep failing and gain all their weight back because I recognized they were not addressing the real emotional burns that they were carrying, the I'm not worthy, I'm not enough.

And so because they didn't believe in themselves that's what was holding them back from actually sustaining the healthy habits. And so even if when you say I try, the patients say I try, they try because there's a part of them that doesn't believe that they actually deserve to be that rocking trim, healthy, and someone that deserves for everybody to turn their head and look at them.

And so because it's all the old shame... we all have old shame that we're holding on to that has us believe that we don't deserve to be in the spotlight. Because our deepest fear is our light, not our darkness. And that's what drives people so self-sabotage in health, in career, in relationships, in everything that we do. And so I ended up in the training, linguistics programming but I found that that was not enough to get to real issues.

And so low and behold the universe orchestrated me ending up in this training called internal family systems. It's a general physician. We all got evidence based, internal family systems, IFS, developed by Dr. Richard Schwarz, is an evidence based modality of permanent emotional healing. It's the fastest path to becoming aware of who you are. And it's the fastest path to really living as your authentic self and unleashing the most extraordinary version of who you are. Men or women you've always dreamed of becoming. 

And just unleashing to the next level and whatever it is that you want to do with your life, getting spirit-led center and finding your true calling. And living life with joy on the journey to really leaving your legacy. And so that is power.

Dr. Veronica: One thing that I'm noticing is a lot of us who have been in, let's say traditional, beautiful, successful careers are now moving out of those stable places to be able to go on and help people on the spiritual journey. Why do you think that is? What do you think is going on here?

Emily: Especially with success driven people who lived life as they were supposed to. You do great in school. Yeah, I know. Go to college, or maybe you were told by your mom and dad you got to be a doctor, a lawyer, an engineer. Be an artist, no, shut that part of you off. 

So you do what you're supposed to do. You live through this mask, this persona that you've erected of how you're supposed to show up so you get accepted by people. And so you go on this rat race. You make good money, have the kids, buy the house, whatever it is that you're supposed to do to look like you're successful. Then usually in mid-life, especially people in their 40's is like, "This is all there is? How come I'm not happy despite the money, status, and stuff? Who am I? Why am I here on this earth? I know I'm a good doctor and a lot of physicians I used to call on, but this is just a rat race."

Dr. Veronica: It's funny for me. I feel like it was a year in practice that I started my own from patient zero that I knew this ain't it. Then I became more and more miserable and depressed because I had no idea how to get out of it at that point in addition to thinking that, oh my god, I spent so many years to get here. I spent so many years to get here and now I can't stand it. What am I going to do? In addition too, because in our culture and society people are just so sick nobody's going to help you get out because they want you as their doctor.

Emily: And I think the other frustration that a lot of physicians used to share with me is I give them these tools. The same old song and dance, you got to eat right, you got to exercise, move your body. And so these patients try and they don't succeed. Because they want to just stay in the darkness because... Oh my god, I just had a conversation the other day with a new client and she says, "Oh my god, who am I if I showed up in my thousand watt light? I've never shown up in that way." And so it's scary.

You need to do the emotional healing work. Because what happens is we're so off from center because we don't have the right story in our head. So maybe there are physicians that could stay in medicine. But when you do so many inner works understand who you are and what drove you to overachieve. A lot of that over achievement can be due to... you were the smartest kid in class and the bullies all make fun of you for wearing pocket protectors or whatnot. And it's like, "I'll show them." 

So we don't even know we have that story going on in our head. And then just the pressure from mom and dad. They want... It's only the way I'm going to get approval is if I get an MD, or JD, or MBA after my name. So you keep seeking validation from the outside. Because when you were young stuff happened at school or at home where you felt neglected, when you felt like you didn't belong.

I had a physician that I worked with and this is one of his most traumatic moments. When he was in second or third grade he had to smell the feet of the bully on the school bus. Just imagine how humiliating that is. And the kids also shoved him down the sewer when he was in first grade. 

And so he had all of these. He had great parents but he had all these bad incidences from the bullies and made him believe, took on the belief, "I am not enough. I'm not lovable. Look at what they did to me. I am ashamed." He was also a minority so you felt like I didn't belong and that's why they're discriminating. 

And so that drove him to succeed and become a doctor and whatnot. Yeah, over achievement but now he is sabotaging his relationships. He's a very handsome man and he always had trouble with... Logically he knows he's handsome, but every time he sees a beautiful woman at the bar or at some party or whatever he's so afraid to approach her because of that little boy that was in the sewer. That little boy that was on the school bus believing that he is worthless.

So that little voice is like, "Why would she want to go out with me?" The logical brain says, "Of course she wants to go out with you. You're successful, you're a doctor." But that little boy inside of him is like, "No, you don't deserve her." And even if he did get her to go out he'll sabotage it. 

Dr. Veronica: Let's break some ground here. Because we both talk to all kinds of audiences. But I want to break a little ground here because there are some subject matter that people just gloss over and they don't talk about it. And if we don't start talking about these cultural identities we're never going to get people well. 

And so we are sitting here, you're an Asian woman, I'm an African American. First we got the woman thing going on but then we have the not from the European culture thing going on. Where do you think that plays a role? Let's talk a little bit about that. As an Asian woman where were you. Because I know there was self-talk and I have plenty of Asian friends who tell me what was going on in their family. 

And I look at Asian people and say, "You guys start out with an A because everybody expects you to have the A. And then you have to knock yourselves down in grades. You start out with the A. But as a black person you start out with an F and then you got to work yourself up to the whatever. 

But there's all kinds of positive and negative things going on in this and I know there's plenty of people who watch you and or watch me because I'm an African American woman, or because you're an Asian woman. They're going to listen to what you have to say. 

First, speak to your Asian brothers and sisters and let everybody else know a little bit about what's going on with the negative self-talk in the Asian community. And I know it's not monolithic. I understand that. When people are looking from the outside they tend to lump in. And this is one of our problems, we're not educated. But there's some Asian personas that from having friends that are Japanese, Korean, Filipino, Taiwanese, all the different areas. I've seen some similarities in the way the families operate. Talk about that and the negative self-talk.

Emily: Yes. I'm an immigrant. I came here when I was nine.

Dr. Veronica: I'm still listening, but keep talking.

Emily: Okay. I came here when I was nine years old and without a word of English. And so I was trying to assimilate in Los Angeles which was not so traumatic. What became traumatic was when the family moved to New York in the middle of junior high, in the middle of the school year. And we ended up living in a two bedroom, non-air conditioned, third floor walkup for six people, four kids and two parents, one bathroom. And so it was not fun. 

I just felt so ashamed for having to live that way. We were one of the poorest kids on the block. And so the first neighborhood that we lived in there were a lot of African Americans in the school and I was teased a lot for being Asian. I was called all sorts of discriminatory names. And I didn't share those with my parents. 

My parents was toxicity at home with the way my father was emotionally abusing my mother, belittling her. And just witnessing that was horrible. And so I didn't feel the love at home because there was no love between them. So they didn't know how to show up as parents. And so I had to break up their fights and stuff, so I had bad trauma. 

And then I have all the trauma of the stuff that I experienced at school where I'm like, "Oh my gosh, I'm wearing hand me down clothing. Nothing matches. I needed braces. I felt ugly." And so that shame kept going on because we had moved again in the middle of the school year and I didn't feel like I fitted in. We were living amongst a lot of Jewish and Italian families in bay side Queens way back in the 70's. There weren't a lot of Asians. Again, I felt different.

Dr. Veronica: It's interesting because Queens now is like little Asia.

Emily: Yes. I know. And so the point is however we grow up, because when we feel different that's when we take on the beliefs of I don't fit in. And so I always felt ashamed about my Asian-nes because I was never accepted as an Asian. 

And I had an incident where I was at the home of a Jewish boy working on a project, somebody that I had a crush on. And his mother comes home and just says to him, "Take her home please. She doesn't need to come here and do this project with you." It was just the way that she said and I remembered just being frozen. It's like, "Oh my god, here I am being discriminated against." So all of that toxicity at home and then the stuff that I was feeling at school, it drove my overachievement gene, because I said, "I got to get out of here." I am never coming back home. 

Fortunately, I got into Cornell, got into a good school, but at Cornell the discrimination continued. I was in the fraternity parties and the frat boys I was overhearing them saying, "You got to go ask that chink to dance with you." The names that I was called it was horrifying.

I kind of shoved all of that shame under the rug and I was fortunate that I was able to get a great job. Eight months out of college I started working for Pfizer, got out on my own. And because I was now making money I wasn't poor anymore, I decorated myself in designer clothing. I made sure I looked perfect to just make sure nobody knew who that Emily was underneath all of this package of perfection.

And there's a saying that perfectionism is just shame wrapped up in a pretty little box. And that's what I was hiding. And so I met my husband, got married, had a kid, and all that other kind of stuff. I have another trauma which is when I was five months pregnant. My husband suffered a heart attack. He was only 38, I was 29. That's a whole another side of the story.

He's alive today. He's doing well. But for 15 years I had to deal with raising a kid and trying to figure out is his next shoe going to drop. When is he going to die? He's gone through a couple of angioplasties, quadruple bypass surgery, all that stuff. 

I was frozen. I lived a numbed out life. I was like, "Okay, just keep making money. You got health insurance and just do what you're supposed to do. Go out on a nice vacation." But then at the end of the day I really wasn't addressing the fact that I really wasn't satisfied. I was doing my job in my sleep but I knew that there was more of me that could be unleashed, I just didn't know what that was going to look like. And I wasn't going to worry about it until I retired. The universe had a different game plan. 

In 2011 that's when they decided, okay, it's time to lay you off and to wake you up. And so on this entrepreneurial journey is where I found my joy. Even though it's extremely hard. I've hit many speed bumps, got into very stinky potholes, gotten stuck there. The rest of my emotional karma stuff that wasn't worked on had to be worked out.

And so the reason why I gained this courage and fearlessness to go on the entrepreneurial journey was because 10 years prior, in my 40, I'm 54 now. In my 40's all of the emotional baggage that I've never addressed kind of came to the surface and I ended up in a depression and anxiety state for a year. It was triggered by a situation at work which led me to address all of the anger and range that I had towards my father for the way he treated my mother. The anger and rage for him being so afraid and not being able to support the family in a way where I could at least had clothing that made me feel like I fit in with the group. The anger and rage of not being able to afford braces for me to feel like I look normal. And I also addressed all of the shame of being Asian that I had to address. 

Initially I had gone to a hypnotist to heal and I had to go back and access these young parts of me, including the part of me that was growing inside of my mother's womb. I was the oldest of four kids. What's interesting is looking at the picture, my mother being pregnant with me I knew right then and there that fetus, she was praying for me to be a boy. Because my grandmother used to say to my mother all the time, keep getting pregnant until you produce sons. 

As a fetus that's growing we pick up on all those energy. I knew that I was a worthless human being from the very get go. So it was me, my sister, and my two brothers. And even when my grandfather died he only asked for my brothers to go back to Taiwan. And he didn't ask for me and my sister. It's just all the cultural burdens. It's not their fault. They were downloading these beliefs and programming it to us. It's a legacy part that we have to release. It's not my parents' fault that they were fighting with each other or they couldn't be present for me. It's because they are wounded. They didn't do the healing.

So when we do our healing that's when we forgive all of the people that have hurt us. And we forgive ourselves. And so I had to do all these healing, repairing all these young parts of me that didn't feel... Because when you're experiencing that kind of trauma. You take on the beliefs that I must not be worthy. I must not be lovable. I must not be enough. That's why I get discriminated against, that's why I get made fun of. 

And what happens is there's parts of you that go into overdrive to try to overcompensate, so the overachievement gene. You're overachievement to try to show that you are worthy. So my drive to make money to make myself look good. Now we're doing it for the wrong reasons and that's why it will come back to haunt you especially in midlife.

Dr. Veronica: Some of these issues that are societal and cultural don't necessarily go away. But there are people who end up thriving because they heal from them. And people who are hurting with spiritual, emotional, and physical issues want to know how to heal. So you talk about this negative self-talk and how to be extraordinary. And you specifically talk a lot about people attracting love into their lives and why they cannot attract love into their lives.

I deal with people like this all the time and one of their biggest sources of pain is they don't have a life partner. And so you talk about, "Hey, this is what you're doing wrong. Here's how you shifted." Talk a little bit about what people attract in their life. Because people just feel like, "I always get the bad guys or I never get the bad guys." 

We're in a culture now as African American women, we feel like we're the last chosen. I look at Asian women, I think, those are the pretty dolls that everybody wants. Everybody wants an Asian woman. Which I think is a burden to be thought of like that of course. On the other side when you're put up on that pedestal and everybody wants you and they're going to take care of you that's different than being from a group of women where you feel like you're the last chosen all the time.

Emily: Yeah. I find that fascinating. Knowing how I grew up, like, "Why would they want me? Here I am, the Asian that nobody wanted." And now all of a sudden all these men...

Dr. Veronica: Everybody thinks you're hot.

Emily: Why didn't they think I was hot when I was growing up? Wayne Dyer famously said you will not attract what you want into your life, you will attract who you are. So if you're attracting the same losers over and over again it's because it's a reflection of who you feel you are on the inside. So if you don't think you're worthy that's the energy that gets transmitted. And if you're addicted to stuff you're going to attract another addict. If you're so used to watching your dad beat the heck out of your mom or vice versa then that's a familiar energy. So you're going to attract that energy because that little girl inside of you who has not been healed is attracted to the little boy inside of him that has not been healed, so it's familiar. 

The goal of a love relationship is for us to finish childhood. And that is why we are attracted to the people. There's one group of people that is attracted to the people with the positive and the negative qualities of the people that hurt us in the past. "Oh my gosh, no wonder I'm attracted to my father, or my mother, whatever," that's one group of people. And then another group of people is because they experience so much pain they end up attracting somebody's who's safe, who they don't go through the emotional ups and downs with. And they just live life more or less like roommates. 

So absolute joy and love relationship is not going to happen without absolute depth of pain. Because the pain when you're triggering each other, you can't get along. But there's a part of you that's like, "But why am I so magnetically attracted to him?" It's because he is reminding you of somebody from the past that you have unfinished business with. 

And when you recognize that and say, "Okay, he yelled at me for the way I emptied the dishwasher." I know this is not life or death but there was a part of him that reminded him of sloppily you emptied the dishwasher. Nothing is lined up directly in the cupboards. That's like a part of him that needs order and detail. And it's because it's a part of him from the past that is reminding him of the order and detail that mom used to have or whatever. Mom used to yell at him for not having things in order. So now he's trying to re-live that life through the partner and he's nitpicking on every little thing.

Dr. Veronica: Turn that around just a little bit because there are people who are watching where they've been through the trauma and they get it why they were attracted to that partner that's not serving them well now. But on the other side there's people who are in relationships that seem to be doing well and it seems to be working. What's going on there?

Emily: Relationships that seem to be working, you do have to eventually do... If you really want mind blowing, emotionally intimate relationships you have to work on yourself individually, and you have to work on couple relationship. Because you have to recognize that the stuff that pushes your buttons, the triggers, it's all a gift for you to grow intimately closer. And you have to recognize that when there's that angry edge that comes out it's not really anger towards you, it's really anger towards himself and towards somebody in the past. 

Maybe he's so angry at the fact that you don't keep things in a neat way. Because it's really residual anger and rage towards his mother for making him do things just so. And so it's that residual anger that's coming out when he's sees that you're not really behaving in the right way. 

When you recognize that that's where it's from this is when you... let's say you're the female partner, you could say, "Hey Dan, can this part of you that is so neurotic about order, can that part of you just chill out a little bit? I just need a little bit space here. What does it need from me in order for this part of you to relax?"

Essentially now there's three people in the conversation. It's yourself, the husband, and then the part of the husband that has his need for order. So you're not blaming him, you are saying this is this part of you that is showing up in this relationship. "Now, you're reminding me of my father the way he used to scold me of how sloppy I was." And it just goes back and forth.

When you both recognize it that is where the true healing can take place, to say, "Hey Dan, let me hold your hand. Just let this part of you know that I'm going to do my best to make it a little bit neater the next time. And if you could just relax. Nothing bad's going to happen if the dishes aren't quite stacked up in an orderly way."

And so that's when intimacy happens. And so you need a tool set to understand, you're going through the doorway for Dan, this part of him that is neurotic about order. You get to know this part of him. Sometimes he gets to know this part. You kind of separate out. Maybe you use a glass, maybe the image comes out as the soldier or whatever. 

We have these little sub personalities inside of our minds, of these parts of us that are kind of running our show, the voices inside of our head. And you have to separate out from that part and get to know the job of this part that's neurotic about order. What's its job? It's job is to make sure everything's in order. It's just job is to make sure that you are seen as somebody who's neat. It'll keep telling you the story. And you ask it, what is it afraid of if it doesn't do its job of keeping things in order? It's afraid that things are going to fall apart. It's afraid that people are going to judge you. It's afraid that you're going to get criticized. It's afraid that you're going to fail if things aren't in order.

And so you peel back the layers. And then once this part tells you its story of why it keeps in this neurotic state then it will show you then who's the vulnerable child inside of you that this part is protecting. He says, "It's that seven year old part of me that is just crying in the closet after mom yelled at me for not lining my books up in the right way."

Dr. Veronica: I get what you're saying, but there's all these buttons that have been pushed, starting from even before we're born. You're telling about things that were happening and you're parents and their thought process before you were even born. How do we incorporate that in to make it from a harming experience to a, this is one of the biggest blessings that I realized it is. 

I can see things. I'm intuitive and so things flash in and I understand them on a different level more now. I see things that happen when I was young and I realized, "That's why I'm not so happy with the way my body looks in this particular situation." You can know what that is. I've been made the way I am. I love me the way I am. But what do you do when there's the negative signals coming from all over the place.

And so as I'm saying, hey, you're saying, "People think I'm hot?" You were getting a signal that has been a positive signal. But for a lot of people they've been getting those negative signals. A lot of people that I work with they're overweight. And they're like, "I've always been a fat kid." And they had that negative story that's been going on and they still have it and the society at a whole is going to continue to have that picture. 

And so while you're healing from it, while you're getting back your health give us some keys to switching over into that positive wealth of how the healing begins. Because I know once people start embracing these issues the problems they've been dealing with including health problems, they start to heal and go away. And it's miraculous how all of a sudden, "Oh my god, it's easy for me to lose the weight right now," or whatever it is. "My gosh, my blood pressure is lower. My medicine's lower. My cholesterol's lower." That fear, anger, and sadness that they've been holding on as they let go, the health problems go away. But the society hasn't changed. The culture hasn't changed. How do people start to deal with what's going on in the negative out there that they feel is harming but let it go enough so they can heal themselves.

Emily: Yes. And so I started to talk about some of the steps of how you heal, getting to know this part. And so I'm going to describe the typical client that has the fat part. Anybody that's been through a weight struggle has this fat part of me that sabotages. And so maybe this is a good time to mention the gift that I'm going to give them.

Dr. Veronica: Oh please, yes.

Emily: If the audience goes to nonegativetalk.com they could enter their email and get the whole protocol of how to get to know these parts of you that are holding you back. So this way you don't have to keep taking notes. And if we're going all over the place with our conversation you have a protocol to follow. 

A typical fat part story. I'm going to tell you a story of a 40-year old woman that I worked with. She had the same 15 pounds that she was gaining and losing over and over again. She was just disgusted. And she's like, "This is not giving me the energy to do what I need to do for the next step of my career because I'm so consumed with food." 

And so we got to know this fat part of her. And I said, "When did this fat part of you begin?" She separated out the fat part. It looked like a Michelin... Because we get images of these parts of us. And so she got this part of her that was talking to her, and she says, "Yeah, this part's telling me that it's been my life since third grade." "Okay, what's its job? Keep you fat, keep you..." Because she emotionally ate, and to soothe the emotional pain because it was afraid... it was the fat part. Let's call her Mary. If it didn't keep Mary far what is it afraid is going to happen to Mary if this fat part didn't keep her fat? It said that it's afraid that Mary was going to get teased and criticized. If she got attention from being thin and beautiful it's afraid that she was going to be judged.

And so eventually I said, "Okay. What happened in third grade that had you take on this fat part?" And it brought her to a memory in a third grade classroom when she was just frozen because she has beautiful red hair and she was amongst a sea of brunettes. And so she was constantly teased for her beautiful red hair not only by classmates but by her siblings. That part of her believed that it is not safe to shine because I will be teased.

As she grew older and older, every time she just didn't feel good about herself because this part was getting triggered. She just ate to numb out that pain. And she couldn't figure out why she would lose it. She would work so hard, "Let me go on this exercise plan, this diet plan." And then this fat part will come back and just self-sabotage the whole thing. 

Because the fat part's like, "You didn't get to know me. You don't even know why I keep you fat. You hate me. So the more you hate the part of you that holds you back the more it will be like, "Oh yeah, you hate me? Well guess what, I'm not going away. I'm going to keep coming back until you pay attention to me and hear my story. 

As she got to know the fears of this fat part, and this fat part said, "I'm protecting that third grade part of you that's still in the classroom being shamed and bullied for having red hear." She had to update this fat part to say, "You're holding me back. I'm 40 years old. I'm trying to feel good about myself so I could have the confidence and the courage to go for this next promotion because right now I don't feel good in my body. And the fat part was like, "Really, you're 40 years old now? You're no longer seven? And I'm holding you back? Oh, wow."

Dr. Veronica: Let me take it up just one notch because we all have our suffering that we go through and some people may be listening and saying, "She got teased because she has red hair." That ain't a big deal. That's really not a big deal. I was sexually abused. I was mentally and emotionally abused. And it continued for years, and years, and years. I went into a relationship and that relationship was abusive. And so red hair, that's easy. 

What do you say to those people who've been through really major challenges and difficulties a lot of times at the hands of people that they trusted? What do you say to people like that about...? It's hard to say, "I'm 40 and I got to let it go when it's just..." How do you let go of that to be able to shine and be the best you?

Emily: Yes. You can't just let go and just say, "Okay, I'm not that story anymore. You have to do the healing, especially for these incidences of sexual abuse, verbal abuse, these toxic things. That part of accessing that vulnerable child, that part of the journey, it would be irresponsible for me to say, "You could go and heal this yourself. 

You could get to know your fat part. A lot of sexually abused people also have a fat part because it's their insulation against further sexual abuse, which is very understandable. And I've worked many sexual abuse survivors. And so you have to go in through the door way of this protective mechanism, the parts of you that you don't like and that's why you got to get to another story. 

And so the sexual abuse part, people have been sexually abused, what I want to share with them is you can permanently get over the shame from being sexually abused. And your whole system has to give you permission through the guide of an expert. You can't do this on your own because you could do further damage to yourself. And if you try to do it on your own without the right tools, there's more and more protectors that are going to be erected to prevent you from actually going there.

And so the whole goal is to get the whole protective system... Think of the protective system as soldiers that are guarding the door to the dungeon that's filed with these pained and shamed parts of you. And so when they give the permission, okay, now that you could hear my story of why I keep you fat, why I keep you procrastinating, why I keep you angry. You hear the story and you get it. And we're ready to transform into a more positive parts. 

Let me show you the parts of you that we're protecting in the dungeon. And so they'll guide you. The highest self, all love for yourself, your highest self has the power to rescue that young part of you that's in the dungeon. And you, that young part of you will be looking at you, your 40-year old self. And that young part of you because she was abused. 

Nobody was there where she felt safe to tell the whole story. A lot of abusers, they keep all that to themselves. And so when this four year old girl that was abused can safely trust you, the highest self. She tells you her story. She tells you what happened to her. She tells you the burdens that she's been holding on to, burdens of worthlessness. "I'm not lovable. I'm not enough. I'm dirty." And let her flesh all of that out to you. 

And then you give her what she needed at that moment of trauma. And you pour all the love, I'll tell her it's not your fault your uncle abused you. He's broken and we have to forgive him. What counts is I love you. You are enough. And that's released as burden, that's like get it out of the body. And people hold it in certain phases. Maybe for sexually abused people they're holding it in their sexual organs and stuff where they're always clammed up when they're intimate with someone. 

Whatever it is the highest self can help this young four year old heart to release all the negative energies and the burns that she's been holding on to. And we could get that four year old part unstuck from the past. Let's get you out of that house, out of that bedroom, and let's go into my current home. And let's burn that house down. If she wanted to burn the house down you help her to burn the house down. 

And so as you're actually doing this, this is actually rewiring the memories at the cellular level. Untangling the trauma and then... it's called memory reconsolidation where now the new memory of when you think about this four year old part of you that's been abused, now you think about how your higher self just giving her love, and hugs, and say, "I love you. I got you." You're the one that you need in order to heal yourself.

Dr. Veronica: Emily, again, tell people where they can go to get stared with your type of techniques. And before we give that I just got to say to the audience, one thing that Emily said is about you can't do this yourself. Now, in our culture and society everybody's going to Dr. YouTube and getting a degree on the university of Google. 

And there's all kinds of "self-help books." But what people who are high performers know, who are in successful in life, who are healthy and happy is you have to have somebody who's an expert to show you the way. It's like when you drive a car. Somebody has to teach you how to drive that car. Would you get into a plane and pilot yourself after you've watched it on YouTube and read it on Google?

So reach out to get help. There are traditional doctors and therapists but how's that been working for you? And then there are people like Emily Filloramo and her main website, bemoreextraordinary.com. But Emily, tell us about where people can get your gift again.

Emily: nonegativetalk.com will give you the protocol. And then if you want to also learn more after you look at this protocol I would recommend that they read my book, How to Permanently Erase Negative Self-Talk. People, they write me letters to say, "I cried during your book because so many of the stories hit home for me." I said, "The first step to change is awareness." And reading my book and understanding the whole landscape of the internal family system model of psychospiritual healing, you're going to understand, "Oh my god, it is not my fault after all that I'm stuck. It's not my fault that I am fat." 

Now, do I want to do something about it? That's a whole another phase of change. So sometimes people want to stay stuck in their negative stories because that means you don't have to answer to anything. You don't have to finally show up. And if that's what they choose to do it's their prerogative.

Dr. Veronica: That's where they are. And so we're talking about this for health reasons, why? Because it's just not about diet, exercise, and supplements. It's not just about diet, exercise, and supplements. It's about a lot more than that.

Emily: And what's interesting is when I was going through the training with internal family systems my teachers and professors were saying... since I used to work in the pharmaceutical industry, "Imagine if everybody healed themselves, came home to their true self and felt really good, and forgave everybody, you know what, we would not need the pharmaceutical industry. We would not need the diet industry. And all of this emotional burden stuff would be released. We don't need pills, we don't need diets because it's going to naturally heal our bodies. We will be taking many industries out of the water." 

That's how powerful this is. Not that we're going to bankrupt all of these industries in our lifetime because there's just so many layers to this. Because internal family systems is not a pharmaceutical pill that some rep can go and sell to you. 

Pills are the easy way to [Unintelligible 00:46:52]. "Okay, I have fibromyalgia, let me take this pill." Fibromyalgia is trying to tell you something. Cancer is trying to tell you something. It is a protector that's saying heal emotionally already. I think you and I both know epigenetics and all that stuff, 80% of diseases are caused by environmental things, things that happen to us, and it's not just genes. 

Dr. Veronica: It is not just genes.

Emily: You can't blame it on your genes. 

Dr. Veronica: Root cause of every illness and injury is a spiritual and emotional issue which triggers and goes along with those environmental, genetic, and lifestyle factors. But if you don't have the spiritual, emotional issue sitting there in the first place is not going to trigger even the genes. You got the breast cancer gene. You're going to get breast cancer because you have an issue. Live your heart chakra in that energy center. 

Emily: Exactly. If you ask most breast cancer patients why they got breast cancer, it's like, "Oh, I stayed in my marriage too long. It's the toxicity for my husband, that's fine. 

Emily: Baggage with my father... Your body's always talking to you and you got to do this virtual healing, and yes, spiritual healing is not a pill. And you have to find a practitioner that you resonate with. And so if traditional psychotherapy, self-help programs have not gotten you to the finish line it's because you haven't found the right modality. Traditional psychotherapy can get you stable but really move the needle. You got to do this "clean up duty" with internal family systems. 

Most of the people that are training internal family systems are psychotherapists, you could fine someone near you by going to selfleadership.org. You'll get that information or not, When you're down on my e-book. You go to that website to find somebody near you. They may even take your insurance. 

And then there's a bunch of us that are trained, that are not therapist that takes internal family systems way beyond psychotherapy to help people unleash extraordinary, to help people become better leaders. Exactly, and so this is how powerful this is because at its root this is spiritual cleaning. This is not psychotherapy. You got to rescue all of those parts of you that are still stuck in the past burned with the emotional pain of getting bullied at school, sexually abused being made fun of, or you felt like you didn't matter. All those parts are just still frozen and old memories. You got to go and rescue those parts and come into the present with you.

Because these parts of you now transform into something positive and they get on the same sheet of music. And they become a part of your inner team, an orchestra member that's actually playing along with you. Because you want to go from point A to point B, you want to make the world a better place, well, you got to get rid of this inner conflict that's up here. And when you fully believe in yourself, when you're madly in love with yourself that's when your vibration changes, and that's when you attract all the people and the opportunities that you need in order to launch yourself into greatness.

Dr. Veronica: Fabulous. And we're going to be able to close right there. Before we close with Emily Filloramo give us the gift website again. 

Emily: It's nonegativetalk.com.

Dr. Veronica: nonegativetalk.com, and the book is How to Permanently Erase Negative Self-Talk: So You Can Be Extraordinary. Emily's other website is bemoreextraordinary.com. Thank you so much Emily.

Female VO: Welcome to the Wellness Revolution Podcast, the radio show all about wellness in your mind, body, spirit, personal growth, sex, and relationships. Stay tuned for weekly interviews featuring guests that have achieved physical, mental, and spiritual health in their lives.

If you'd like to have access to our entire back catalog visit drveronica.com for instant access. Here's your host, Dr. Veronica.

Dr. Veronica: Thank you for joining in for another episode of Dr. Veronica's Wellness Revolution. Today I am so lucky to have this lady on. She doesn't know how great she is. I already told her how great she is, but she doesn't even know how great she is but you're going to find out. 

This lady teaches at Harvard, yes she does. And she's teaching all kinds of people how to teach people how to be healthy. And so she's a teacher of the teacher. So you know somebody who is a teacher of the teacher is a master. And not only does she teach the teachers, she also has her own clients that she helps transform their lives.

I have with me Dr. Elizabeth Frates. Dr. Elizabeth Frates, a newly elected board member of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine. You're saying, "What is the American College of Lifestyle Medicine?" This is the area... Finally Harvard has said, and you know when Harvard says it it's right, right? 

Finally, we know that the way to get results in your body is through lifestyle changes. But why is there a whole college about it and conferences about it? Because people just don't know how to do it. It seems intuitive but a lot of it isn't. It's a field. 

And so I'm at Dr. Frates at the Institute for Functional Medicine and she was given a talk about how for us as practitioners to get our clients to exercise. And she was brilliant. She was hula hooping on the stage while she was giving her talk. She talked about how you get people creatively to move. And then I said I used to be able to hula hoop, let me go hula hoop. And I couldn't hula hoop. I was pissed. But you know me, I'm competitive. I got to figure out how to get it done. So I even got myself a hula hoop. Somebody told me, "Here's the problem. You got to have the right set of..." You don't have the right equipment. You don't have the right knowledge. You do not get results.

Let me introduce to you Dr. Elizabeth Frates, physician in physical rehabilitative medicine, teacher to the teachers, and master. Welcome to Dr. Veronica's Wellness Revolution.

Dr. Frates: Thank you so much Dr. Veronica. I love being here. I love your energy. And I admire what you're doing. Every day all of your podcast, what you do for people to help them transform their lives and how you're able to do this virtually and hit millions of people. I saw somewhere a stat of 29 million people, which is...

Dr. Veronica: I've been all over the world. People find me from the other side of the earth and it's quite interesting. Because what people don't know how I started doing this, I was doing something completely different. I had left health care and people found me and pulled me back in because they figured that I was a doctor. And that's how I started coaching. I started doing it remotely.

Now, Dr. Frates, you have a very interesting story about how you started in this. And I want you to share that because everybody has that journey, that story. So how did you start in this area? What happened in your life?

Dr. Frates: Thank you for asking Dr. Veronica because it is the reason that I get up every day and I love going to work as the original seed for my calling in lifestyle medicine. It has to do with the patients, one particular patient actually, Donald. And that's his first name. It's not Donald Trump. He just happens to be Donald. Just clarification. 

I do want to tell you about Donald. When he was 52 years old he was overworked, overstressed, and overweight. Some of you might know someone like this. Some of you might be someone like this. A good man, loved his family and his clients. He was a financial adviser, Park Avenue in New York. He took over his dad's business and was a good son and a hard worker. And he dined almost exclusively on steak, French fries, quick fix hamburgers, chocolate cake, Oreos in the middle drawer of his office desk. Keeping them stashed.

And he used to be an amazing athlete. That was in high school. Now he was 53 when I'm telling you this story of his life. And at this time he did one form of exercise, just one. He used to be a baseball player, soccer player, basketball player, one thing, sprints. Imagine, sprints. But these are only on occasion and only at 11:07 PM, only time he did this sprint. And that's because he needed to catch the last train home from Grand Central Station. 

So if he looked at his clock and it said 11:05, he could finish a few things up, maybe grab an Oreo, and then race down Park Avenue to Grand Central Station to catch that last train home. And one of those sprints, he had a little pressure, a little pain. No pain, no gain. Forge forward. He can get through anything. This man can make it through any amount of pain. He will get the job done. He will get to his destination. He will meet his goal.

He got on the train. He made it just... He would cut often, report stories of getting in and the doors just closing in right after him. Well, he was happy to be on the train. By the end of the half hour train ride, his home station arrives and he feels as if there's an elephant resting on his chest now. Numbness and tingling down his left arm. Sweaty, diaphoretic, short of breath. This is very strange. He feels very uncomfortable. His wife was a school teacher and knows nothing about medicine. 

Picks him up at 11:39, which is the time the train would arrive, takes one look at him and says, "You need to go to the ER." He drives him there where he completes his massive myocardial infarction and right middle cerebral artery stroke. What's that? He had a heart attack and he had a stroke leaving him paralyzed on his left side.

That's the patient that inspires me every single day, basically. Pretty much every single day that one patient. I was 18 when that happened to Donald. And this is Donald Peg, my dad. That event is forever etched in my head because I love my dad. And he was the pillar of strength. And I was actually going to go into the family business. That was my plan. I'm the youngest of all Pegs. That's my maiden name, Peg. 

And all the other cousins they had their other things they were doing and I was very much like that. Hard worker, driven, and the youngest cousin I was going to take it over, until this. And I watched my dad, he didn't make a complete recovery. So he worked hard for in physical medicine and rehabilitation with PT's and OT's. 

The only thing that remained, fine motor movement of his left hand was not quite up to par. But you wouldn't notice unless you were his daughter or his physician. But more importantly he made a complete lifestyle change and this is back in the 80's. I watched this man change from the diet you've just heard to fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fish. He never ate these things before. They weren't in our house. I wasn't eating them before, and I started having salads before every meal just like he did.

My mom was his kind of coach Dr. Veronica. I know you coach people. She isn't trained but she went with my dad to intensive lifestyle therapy programs. And she learned about healthy foods and cooking. She also learned about movement and she took it to heart. So not only did he change his diet he changed his pattern of living and moving. Meaning you got an exercise bike, stationary one that he was on one half hour, five days a week religiously. 

Yes, he would be watching some new show or something about the stock market but he was on that bike. He started working from 10 am to 10 pm each day, complete change. Spending more time with my mom, more time with me. My brother got married and had little kids, he was the best grandfather there ever was. And he kissed my mom. For the first time I saw him kiss my mom. That was when I was about 18-19 years old. I still see it. I see him coming towards my mom from behind and I see him leaning over her shoulder and kissing her on the cheek. 

And I remember my thinking, that's so great. He's expressing all that love and he's finally able to live the life that he wanted but I think just couldn't hold. He couldn't hold it because he was so trapped by do, do, do... 
"Make sure the company succeeds for your father. Keep going. Your clients are the most important. Forget you. You don't mean anything. You're fine. You're invincible. You're Donald Peg. You can do anything."

And watching this transformation, first of all I was so grateful that he was able to do this and he did live the best 27 years of his life after his heart attack and stroke. I'm still very close to him. In fact some of this work I feel like I'm doing with him. It's very was very strange. We didn't end up working together in the business, of finance, but I think ultimately in the end we're working together to help people avoid the health setbacks that he had and to help others achieve their optimal state of health and wellness.

This is why I'm so passionate. Since 18 I've been on my own wellness journey, trying different things, different types of foods, different types of movement. Maybe you've noticed something's a little strange about what I'm doing. But that's because I do try to practice what I preach Dr. Veronica. You know this with the hooping. I really try to practice what I preach. And I studied a lot Dr. Veronica about what the body needs so that it can function at its optimal state, optimal level and what the mind needs to achieve peace, and what the heart needs to feel joy. 

These are different things. Medicine really honed in for us, right Dr. Veronica on the body, what the body needs.

Dr. Veronica: Yeah, it did.

Dr. Frates: We didn't get too heavy into the mind, and the peaceful mind, it wasn't part of my training. Certainly the joyful heart, that really wasn't part of it. But I know that's your situation. I know that's what you do. You help all these viewers to understand, to live. Not just get the knowledge but you empower them through your coaching so that they can achieve these feelings of wellness and health. 

That's how my dad and I when we partnered... I joined him again but I just continue and I will find avenues to share the health. And I appreciate this avenue because it's not what I'm familiar with. I know you and I spoke together privately about, I've been teaching at Harvard at the medical school and at the extension school, the students. And I also teach physicians as you heard at the Institute of Functional Medicine at a conference. But I haven't had this avenue open to me until you contacted me. So I'm grateful to partner with you in this podcast ad hopefully share some maybe tidbits that will be useful to your viewers.

Dr. Veronica: Let's talk about some tidbits because you brought out a lot of nuggets that people can learn from. We're now in the age, back when your father had his massive event which could have killed him, he luckily had those events, lived, and really made the change. It really was the moment that made him change. But you and I see people every day who have these moments and they want to change but they just can't figure out how. They don't have a Mrs. Peg there. Is Mrs. Peg your mom?

Dr. Frates: That's right, very married.

Dr. Veronica: ...who has the background or the knowledge or the know-how to... There's a lot of Mrs. and Mr.'s out there that are supportive of the person that they're married to or in a relationship with. But now we have so much knowledge at the university of Google that people feel like I read it, I know it. Nothing's new under the earth but I'm not having success. 

What do you say about that to people? Because I make the point to people that nobody can do anything by themselves, so this is your problem right there. But people still aren't convinced. What do you say to people? Because people are trying hard. They're reading everything. The information's out there. They come in. They almost know more than we do. Almost but not quite.

Dr. Frates: You make so many good points. Francis Bacon, right, knowledge is power. University of Google, knowledge is power. We all go out and we try and get as much knowledge as possible. The thing that I'd learned is it's power but it's not powerful enough to instill lasting change. And so what do we need people to appreciate? 

Because you have the information as Dr. Veronica's saying. Does it mean you'll act on it? We want to know how to get going and how to act on it. There's power in numbers. Having support is important. Having a Mrs. Mary Peg for Donald is important. I think the first partner you need to partner up with though, yourself.

Here's the first partner. And I'm going to ask you to partner with the coach self that's inside of you, every one of you. Dr. Veronica is a coach and she knows how to coach. But guess what, all of you can bring out your own personal coach. How's this? 

I love these five words. Coach, curiosity, bring out your curious child-like self. Be open and non-judgmental with yourself and others. But I'm talking about now you're bringing the coach out of you to help you and talk to you from above. Appreciation for this moment, appreciate for actually being in this podcast, appreciation for Dr. Veronica to have the wherewithal to create these things for you all, appreciation that you had the time to sit and listen today, that you can sit and listen today. Appreciation for perhaps your mom, your dad, your grandmother, your best friend, your spouse, your dog. And then compassion, you've tried things perhaps and it hasn't worked. You've read everything in the internet and it hasn't actually helped yet. But compassion, compassion for yourself and where you are, compassion for others around you. And then H is honesty. Being honest with yourself. 

Are you the person you want to be? Are you following your own sense of purpose? If you line up your priorities on one side and then you line up the amount of time you're spending doing specific activities in your day, is it going to match? Are you spending the most time on the things that are most important to you? Do your priorities match your daily life? In most cases we find no. But you need to be honest with yourself about this.

When you bring this coach like person out of you we all one living inside ourselves. Each one of us has a coach-like individual that can be curious, open, appreciative, compassionate and honest. We can be those things, those human characteristics. 

Partnering with that coach in you, number one, is really, really important. And then if you can find a Dr. Veronica, or become part of a program where there is coach like person that can help you look at your motivators, why change, why adopt a healthy diet now? Why change your eating pattern now? Dr. Veronica could tell you. I could tell you. Dr. Google could tell you. But you need to verbalize why you want to make a change right now. 

For me I'm sure Dr. Veronica can tell you about her clients. I can just list one client who wanted to go to Florida and wear a bikini, and this was a 74-year old woman. I'm not talking about a teenager. That's true. That was her motivation. She was 74 and wanted to wear a bikini. Alright, I'll work with that. I want to get to an intrinsic motivator that was kind of extrinsic appearance motivator. But if that's going to lead her to, which it did, walking regularly, choosing fruits for dessert, filling her plate with vegetables, if that motivation to get on that into a bikini at 74 is her motivator to begin. 

And by the way, she was 200 pounds to start. I'm just trying to paint the picture for you. Then I'm fine with that if that's her motivation, because guess what eventually ended up happening. She started walking and loving it and feeling really good. And she started noticing her pants were fitting differently. She started noticing she was more nimble. She was more energetic. She started inviting friends on walks. She changed her diet because she wanted to fuel herself so she could walk farther. Then she started snowshoeing. We're here in New England. Then she started biking. Now this 74-year old woman has a bike rack behind her car so that she can take her bike and her friend's bikes out to trails. Now she just loves the feeling she gets after exercising. 

So the time comes she's supposed to go to Florida, to get to wear her bikini in Florida. She goes to Macy's, she tries on bikinis. She does. I wasn't there. She told me this story. She didn't like the way they looked so she was disappointed. She found a great one piece that she loved but she came to me saying she was very disappointed. I said, "Wait a minute, did you ever think you'd even put a bikini on 10 months ago?" She said, "Good point. No."

And then the whole point of the story is did she stop after going to Florida and prancing around in her special little one piece that she looked so good in? No, she didn't stop because she loved the feeling of exercise. And she loved the way she felt after she ate fish, broccoli, quinoa, versus when she used to eat five pieces of pizza. She didn't like that feeling.

Now, did she stop pizza altogether Dr. Veronica? Actually this woman did not. She had one piece a week because where she worked they would order pizzas. Why, I don't know. They would order pizzas on Thursday, and it was I guess pizza Thursday. Why don't we have kale and quinoa Thursday, Dr. Veronica? Why? We have pizza Thursday.

So she would instead use that as her treat. She would do one piece of pizza. What happened with her? A massive transformation in her mindset, in her movement, and in her heart. I think if we understand that it's the body, mind, and spirit, not just the body that needs healthy input like how we speak to ourselves, that's asking the coach to speak nicely to yourself. And don't you wonder sometimes, you say things to yourself that you would never say to another person, let alone a friend. You would never speak to a friend that way. Meanwhile you can tell yourself these terrible things.

It comes back to partnering with a coach. Because guess who's with you all the time? Yourself, right? I think the number one message is to bring out the coach in you, that curious, child-like, open, appreciative, look at this day. By the way it's a really cloudy day in New England but you know what, we need rain. We got a drought. So I am saying, "Great. Look it's cloudy. I hope it rains because that'll help the flowers. That'll help our water supply. That'll help us." 

Be appreciative for it. And then be compassionate and honest. I hope that helps. Does that help Dr. Veronica? Was that something you think might be useful?

Dr. Veronica: Absolutely. I love it. You've talked about appreciation and you're showing appreciation. I term that gratitude and I like to talk to people and tell them about the health harming emotions and the health promoting emotions. And that fear, anger, sadness... Your self-talk of fear, anger, and sadness to yourself about yourself is harming your health. The love, the joy, and the gratitude changes your physiology. And we now know that. We have research on that. 

This is why lifestyle medicine is so important. We talk of lifestyle medicine, this goes back to physicians take the Hippocratic Oath. Hippocrates said let your food be your medicine. Medicine is food, food is medicine. We take the Hippocratic Oath. Yet traditional mainstream American medicine has become just the opposite. And in fact we like to talk about doctors who promote using food as medicine. And we want to call them quacks. 

I'm trained now in homeopathy. And Hahnemann, there's a medical school named after him in Philadelphia. They actually changed the medical school name to Drexel now. But Hahnemann, father of homeopathy named homeopathy and allopathy. He named what everybody does today. It meant we're going to do it this way, homeopathy, and drugs, allopathy.

We have come so far away, now we have to turn back around and realize that what we left, what was happening centuries and centuries ago, what was in Hippocrates, what was in ancient China and ancient India, a lot of that, which has to do with the mind and the spirit not just the physical is extremely important.

I also want to bring out something else that you sad about what are your priorities and how much time do you spend with those particular priorities? Is health your priority? This is a Wednesday when we're making this recording. People don't know when they see it. They see it when they happen to come upon it. Wednesday is my work out Wednesday. That's my day. I go to the gym. It's my endurance two hour workout. I spent from 5:45 to 7:45 in the gym working out hard.

Dr. Frates: Look at that glow she has. Just everybody look at her glow, that's from working out. Do you see that glow? That's a glow.

Dr. Veronica: Yes. And then I came home. I made my bone broth. I made my cranberry drink. I made my protein smoothie. I start my day, after I say hello to my dogs, working out and bringing in the right nutritional things to make sure I'm taking my supplements because it's the most important. Me is the more important.

And so, what got me here wasn't just me alone. I had to get to the point where I decided me was important. But I also have a good friend and she's a Dr. Veronica too. And the other Dr. Veronica is a chiropractor. And she got me on the path of understanding about homeopathy because I went to medical school, she used to use these little substances on me and I said, "How did you get that to work?" I don't have any side effects. It happened so fast. How come I never learned about it? I got pissed.

You know what doctors do, we're all competitive about this. I went and got trained instead of "how come nobody knows about this?" It's so easy. People call you a quack here. In France you get a degree from the Ministry of Health when you get trained in homeopathy. Here people say that you're a quack. Yet it works so nicely in the right circumstance. 

You have to keep your mind open. Understand, I have gratitude for people like Dr. Frates who I go to meetings, I meet them, and they say, "Sure, I’ll come on. I'd love to. I have gratitude for that because I always learned something. But it means that I can have your energy and my energy together to come out and help people make the decision that they can do it and they can change.

Dr. Frates, she's up there at Frates, wellness.synergy.com. I want you to know how to find her. Because if you want to go to Harvard and you want to get trained in how to teach other people, or you want to get some advice about your own health, wellness.synergy.com is where you find Dr. Frates. She's got all the paper on her wall.

I got paper on the wall in a different way. I've got all the degrees and all that stuff that you're supposed to have. But I'm here because I'm not going to be the person to help everybody. Here you have it, Dr. Elizabeth Frates on the board of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine. How about that, on the board. 

I'm sitting on her exercise ball. Let me just ask people this. Audience, is your doctor practicing what they're preaching? If they tell you lose weight or go exercise are they doing it? Do they look how you want to look? If they can't a result for themselves they're not going to get a result for you. If they can't get a result for themselves they have to understand they don't have the knowledge and go to another doctor. 

Dr. Veronica, I didn't have all the knowledge. I go to my chiropractor, I go to my physical therapist. I got my trainer. I go to conferences where I'm able to collaborate with the Dr. Frates of the world to figure out how can I do it better for me. Because if I can do i better for me I can teach you how to do it better.

So Dr. Frates, thank you for doing what you do. You are wonderful. This a role model for women and women physicians on the way to do what's passionate for you. You hear where that comes from, from watching her father almost die. And a lot of us, people out there, if you're on a health journey it's not just about you. There people around you who love you. It's not just about you. Get out of your selfishness and realize that you are responsible to all those people around you. Even if your kids are grown, they love you, they want you to be around. And they suffer when they watch you doing things.

I'm an eye surgeon. I watch my grandmother go blind. Do  you understand how my grandmother sacrificed and went blind so that I would do what I do today. Because I know it's preventable. Preventable blindness. She went blind from diabetes. That is preventable diet blindness.

Dr. Frates, she talks about exercise prescriptions. I give people exercise prescriptions. I tell them how to do it. They have to report back to me. I put it little tiny bikes so that they can be successful. And even before I give them the exercise prescription now because they start feeling good on their program they start it themselves because they know they should be doing. Dr. Frates, thank you so much for being on Dr. Veronica's Wellness Revolution.

Transcript

Female VO: Welcome to the Wellness Revolution Podcast, the radio show all about wellness in your mind, body, spirit, personal growth, sex, and relationships. Stay tuned for weekly interviews featuring guests that have achieved physical, mental, and spiritual health in their lives.

If you'd like to have access to our entire back catalog visit drveronica.com for instant access. Here's your host, Dr. Veronica.

Dr. Veronica: Hi, I'm Dr. Veronica. Welcome to another episode of Dr. Veronica's Wellness Revolution. I'm really excited today about the guest that I have. There's going to be a lot of people who connect with this story. So holistically we understand that I'm a medical doctor and also a medical intuitive. And I work with people with holistic health coaching. So what's the issue that I get with a lot of people? I don't accept everybody. I want to make sure you're going to be successful when you enter the program to get your life together. 

So if there's something that's holding you back, that makes you not appropriate for my particular type of program. And there a lot of doctors who do functional wellness who can help you. Usually it's those people who have addictions. 

And one of the hardest addictions that I found to deal with is food addiction. So people never think they're addicted to food. Drugs, alcohol, sex, gambling, you name it. But most of the time people don't want to admit that they have a food addiction.

Food addictions can be harder to treat than getting somebody off of methamphetamine, ice, heroin, and all the nine yards. You know why? Because you just can't go cold turkey with food. You got to eat. And so that's what makes it even more difficult. However, for those of you who are addicted to food there is hope. 

And you're going to say, "How do I know I'm addicted to food?" I get people to come to me. They tell me they're emotional eaters. I had a lady I interviewed earlier in the week for my program. She said, "I eat when I'm sad. I eat when I'm happy. I eat when I'm happy. I eat more when I'm sad. I use food as my comfort all of the time for everything. I've had this happen in my life and I eat. I have that happen in my life, I eat." "How much weight have you gained? How much overweight are you?" "About 130 pounds. Most people underestimate, I'm about 130 pounds overweight." "Have you ever tried anything? What have you tried and how long have you tried it?" "I've cut back on soda. I've cut back on carbs." "How long did that last?" "Well, not a long time. I'm not good at it." "What have you done that you feel has been successful?" "I did a tea fast for two weeks." "Two weeks, huh. How much weight did you lose?" "About 15 pounds." "How long did it take you to gain it back?" Well, the answer comes. "Not only did I gain it back, I gained back more." 

I have with me, who you're also looking at his beautiful bald head. He looks like a monk, Roy Nelson. Roy Nelson has a great book. He's the author of Love Notes from Hell. I'm going to give you upfront what his website is just because I want to say it several times, roynelsonhealing.com. Because he helps people get out of this food addictions. When everything else has failed Roy succeeds. 

So of course I'm bringing people to you who if you say, "Dr. Veronica I really want to help, and I know I'm a food addict, help me." We're actually going to give you a little quiz that you can take later on to figure out if you are a food addict. I want you to be able to find somebody like Roy Nelson.

Roy, I met him at... You guys know I always travel around different events. I met his wife way before I met him. I met his wife and we met probably on the first day of an event. And Trisha comes up to me and we were chit chatting and talking. We're very similar personalities at this point in life I would say because I know Trisha had her own journey. And she said, "You really have to meet my husband. I want you to meet my husband." I had no idea why she was telling me this. 

I told people I do podcasts. I'm looking for people to help my clients or people that I can't help. "You got to meet my husband." And so I don't even know if... Roy, did we actually meet? We might have said hello briefly but I don't even know if we actually met each other at the event. Did we?

Roy: No. I was only there for the evening.

Dr. Veronica: So we didn't meet because he just walked through for a few hours. I saw him from a distance. We never got to say hello but I got his book from Trisha and I started reading it. It was fascinating. I said, "I got to get this guy on the show." 

Roy is the last resort guy. He has a special method, the Nelson method. You know he had to name it because other people can't get results when you cease doing something different. And if you don't get results, you keep doing the same thing; you got to do something different. Roy, I thank you so much for being on Dr. Veronica's Wellness Revolution. Welcome.

Roy: Thank you so much. Thank you for having me on. I appreciate for letting me be here. And hello to everybody. Thank you.

Dr. Veronica: Roy, tell us a little bit about your journey. I know this is in your book Love Notes from Hell. And that sounds like, "Oh my god, do I really want to read a book about love notes from hell?" First, how did you come up with the title for that book?

Roy: Well, it's so interesting how I came together. People have been telling me for decades that I should write a book and finally I hired a branding lady who demanded a book. And then actually the gentleman she put together for branding me came up with a title and it seems very fitting. I don't know that I would've come up with it that way. 

Same way with the picture on the front, they did an all-day photo shoot and they get a picture of me. And the one they got me when I was slouching in the morning, waiting for them to get the lights ready. So he's been practicing and just clicking pictures. And the one they wanted was the one that was shot before it ever started to shoot. I don't pose very well but when I'm off guard that's how they caught me.

Dr. Veronica: Oh yeah. I've done photo shoots so I know how that works. And I pick some of the pictures that were mistakes.

Roy: Yeah.

Dr. Veronica: "Oh my gosh, this is really an iconic picture. And they're the ones that the camera was... I have one that's a silhouette picture and it came out that way in the dark because [Unintelligible 00:07:33]. Anyway, they picked the book. The content of the book made the branding person say, "Oh my god, this was hell." Tell us a little bit about your background.

Roy: Well, the way I put it is I almost died at birth and then it went downhill from there, just to give you an idea. Actually I did almost suffocate at birth. Back in the day when I was born I was born at home and then the doctor wasn't there. The midwife was there. The doctor finally showed up but the umbilical cord was wrapped around my neck and I was choking and I turned blue and all that stuff. 

But I would tell you in that course I grew up in a violent poverty stricken alcoholic home and a violent place where I lived and growing up. My whole childhood was I was in constant fear of physical harm. And consequently I've been afraid my entire life. That's the hell, the fear. That's really living in fear is hell. 

Of course I always come into violence and everything that goes with it, even at home and on the way in the neighborhood, on the way to school, on the way home from school, at school, everything was really... I was in over my head from the very beginning. 

From the beginning the first addiction for all of us is fantasy. When the here and now is so painful sweet spirit gives us the capacity to get there and then. So that's the fantasy that we have. And then of course early childhood sexual experiences cause us to be obsessed with sex and of course all that goes with that. And then of course and which many emotional eaters, people with eating disorders have early childhood sexual experiences. 

Dr. Veronica: When you say early for you what age is early?

Roy: Oh, very young. 

Dr. Veronica: Below 10?

Roy: Oh yes, absolutely.

Dr. Veronica: Okay.

Roy: But all things worked together for good. This is really a condition that can ultimately cause you to become better than you ever would've been if you haven't had it. So it's actually all a blessing. Everything that happened... What seemed bad at the time turned out to be a good thing. It's all in divine order.

I added cigarettes when I was about 12 and then of course I worked from the time as a little kid. I always tried to make money because we were very poor. And then I left home when I was 14. I always worked with older people because I was a kid and I was working with adults. The men I worked with, ever grown men, and the women I was working with, the first women I worked with were in their 30's and I was 15, whatever. I'm just saying, I was always in over my head.

Went away to the army the day I was 17 and was married when I was 20. And then I married a woman who had a child and a year and a half later we had a child. We had twins. And about a year later, before I was 23 I was a father of four. Way in over my head always.

I was a sergeant in the army which I wasn't emotionally equipped for any of it because I've been medicating my emotions from the beginning. Although a lot of times we do a good job when we're shut down emotionally, we get the job done. 

Ultimately I got out of the army when I was 24 years old and of course I had a family and I had no money. Then it was about making money. The first year was tough but then after that I found something I can do. It paid very well. Then it was about acquiring stuff. A big house at the country club section and new luxury cars, and one thing and another. By the time I was 28 years old I was making rounds to the psychiatrist for panic attacks, phobias, and all that stuff.

It's all a process. I did the doctor rounds for about four and a half years and finally turned to the spiritual. When nothing else worked I finally... And I would've done anything to get heat from having a go on a spiritual basis because that's so much religious insanity in my childhood which goes along with all that other stuff that goes with it. That was the nightmare.

Anyway, I hit bottom when I was 32 and I was morbidly obese and completely dependent on alcohol. I had a bag of pills. I didn't like pills. It was the time I used to hire a doctor or registered nurse to travel with me so they could get me IV's of valium or sodium pentothal if the terror got too bad. I drove big cars, smoked cigarettes, chased fast women. Basically I was a relief seeking missile if you get the picture. Ultimately I spent my life running from pain and chasing pleasure.

Dr. Veronica: Okay.

Roy: The pain I created in the process of trying to run from the pain turned out to be more painful than the pain I was running from.

Dr. Veronica: Are you talking your pain as in all the addictive behaviors that you would've accumulated over the years or was there another type of pain?

Roy: Every addiction is a symptom. Addictions are symptoms they're not the problem. People think they are and that's why alcoholics think alcohol's their problem, food addicts think food's their problem, and sex addicts think sex is their problem, but it's not. 

Every addiction has three components, it's a pain killer, it's a form of escape, it's a form of punishment. I have the pain inside because I was a very sensitive, terrified person, and I buried a lot of pain. And the thing is when you bury it that way you bury it alive and it's in there festering. And then you have to have the pain killer. As long as I had the pain I would to have a pain killer. 

And there's many different things that we use to try and cope with that pain. As long as I had the fear of my feelings I would always be running, I would always be looking for escape. And as long I had the guilt, the remorse, and the self-hatred I would always require punishment. 

So what I'm about is helping people feel safe enough to deal with their pain, deal with their fear, deal with their guilt, remorse, and self-hatred so that they don't need the pain killer, they don't need escape, they don't need punishment.

Dr. Veronica: I want to back up a little bit because you said something really interesting. Challenging for people to swallow, you talked about religious insanity, religiosity. Talk a little bit about that because a lot of people are hyper religious. If you say anything what they consider negative against religion or anything in that realm they'll say, "Oh no, you're horrible. You're talking against God." Talk about that religious insanity. I can tell you I understand what you mean by it but other people who are on particular religious pathways that may not sit well with them.

Roy: That's fine. The important thing to understand is that God is love. And when we abide in love we abide in God, and God in us. Everything that isn't love isn't God. 

Dr. Veronica: Okay, I agree with that. What happened in your childhood specifically that you say religious insanity that was problematic, that is not God is love, and that you see in people who are addicts?

Roy: Well, the important thing to understand is not what we believe intellectually that matters. As the famous Carpenter had to say as we believe in our heart. As a man thinks in his heart so is he...

Dr. Veronica: E'er shall he go.

Roy: The important thing to understand is that most of what's driving people is in their subconscious mind. First off I personally believe I brought baggage with me from previous lives. But if that's too crazy or too scary for people that's okay. [Unintelligible 00:17:01] that. No worries. Throw that out the window. 

I think we would all agree that from conception we're gathering data. We have no filter, no discerning capability, and nobody intentionally poisoned me with faulty data. But the data they had that's the only thing they could give me. And the other thing is there's a lot of things that we took on into our master computer, the subconscious mind. A lot of beliefs and ideas that we took on weren't actually sad. They were implied, with the impression we got was that what they meant. It has nothing to do with whatever anybody did to us. We'd go through lying and pointing the finger to somebody else but we're never going to get better that way.

But the important thing to understand is we're gathering data and we have a lot of faulty data going into our master computer. And based on that data we formulate our core beliefs that as our ideas about God, about ourselves, about other people, about everything, about our lives. 

Based on our core beliefs we formulate our philosophy for living. That is our way of navigating our way through this hostile world we perceive ourselves to be in. Based on the faulty philosophy, faulty beliefs, faulty data we build a life that requires us to use something to cope with it. Basically that's what addictions are, they're coping mechanisms. 

The addiction isn't the problem, the addiction is what I used to try to cope with the problem. The problem is the tornado going on inside. And so I call it religious insanity. And the other thing is that most of the people who have eating disorders are terrified of their sexuality. I call it religious insanity manifested as sexual insanity. 

Dr. Veronica: What does that look like? For people who are saying "Is this me?" what does that look like through outside or how do you know that that's you, religious insanity with sexual insanity going on too?

Roy: It's one and the same. Because the primary thing that the religion teaches is that your sexuality is bad. And how far from the truth could that be. Essentially what its saying is take your second strongest God-given instinct. First instinct is for survival. Breathing air, drinking water, eating food, having shelter, being protected. The second strongest God-given instinct is survival of the race. That means pro-creation, that means sex. Essentially the message that I got was take your second strongest God-given instinct, bury it alive, pretend you don't have it and you'd be happy. How insane could that be? 

Dr. Veronica: I'm agreeing with you. I've seen all these issues...

Roy: Of course you have.

Dr. Veronica: To the point where I've walked away from religion because I refuse to be part of organizations that tell me that I'm bad.

Roy: Absolutely. 

Dr. Veronica: ...own and wouldn't accept it, no I'm not a sinner. And so of course when people who are like me say that they call you rebellious and Jezebel and all these other names. You have a strong personality to reject that because we all want to be part of our tribe. And so by rejecting religion a lot of times people say you're rejecting being part of the tribe. And so you're afraid that if you reject those tenets that you're going to be kicked out of the tribe and you're not willing to be kicked out of the tribe.

Roy: That's fine. But the important thing to understand, once again a famous carpenter he said, "The Father is within me." And that's where the spirit is, is deep within our hearts. And so for any addict or emotional eater, food addict, whatever it is, the problem is deep within. The solution is deeper within. Sweet spirit deep within you. 

The essence of you and your... not you particularly Dr. Veronica but all of us of course, but I'm talking to your crew, your people out there. The essence of all of us is spirit. And what I'm about is helping people feel safe enough to face these things within themselves that are blocking them from the sweet spirit that's deep within them that can heal them. I don't heal anybody. I don't think any human being heals anybody.

Dr. Veronica: That's correct.

Roy: What we could do is help them to align themselves with the sweet spirit within themselves that does the healing. I'm really along for the ride. I'm about helping people feel safe enough to go within. And that's what happens when people come to me, and I have people come from all over the world. It's amazing how they find me with everything that goes on. The last one recently, a dear lady friend doctor, a friend of mine featured my book on her book club and some lady in Abu Dhabi read it and came in to see me. It's beautiful how it works and now...

Dr. Veronica: I hope these podcast reaches people. The purpose of doing this is ultimately yes I'm a healthcare practitioner. I'm an intuitive. I come across a lot of people who I know that their issue is very... All illnesses and injuries have a root cause that's emotional and spiritual, all of them, every single one. You don't just get something. 

And so it's interesting because I will talk about this, I had talked about my intuitive abilities and people say, "We can't deal with you because we don't believe in that. We don't want to talk about that." I'm like, "Okay, that's somebody I can't work with because they don't understand what holistic really means, that they're mind, body, spirit. That means that we have to work on all those levels. If you're not willing to open up and work on that level that's out of my core genius area. That's why I'm bringing you on and other people like you who have strategies to work particularly on that.

But those people who haven't realized that their illnesses and injuries are their biggest sole challenges. They're challenges to your soul. You're here to learn something. They're not going to heal from it. 

Roy: I'm totally on board with that.

Dr. Veronica: Your book shows like this, somebody's going to listen to this and watch this, and it's going to resonate with them. And they're going to be happy that a doctor said, "Listen, you don't get your spiritual self together ain't no medicine, no food, no nutrition plan, no supplement, no hormone testing, no adrenal this, no thyroid that is going to help you."

Roy: That's so true. The thing is my experience is everything on the outside is there to help me to refine on the inside. That's why I believe that's why we're here on this level of existence. This is not to realize. We're temporarily human but we're essentially spirit. But we have opportunities for refining here for growth and development here that we wouldn't have on a purely ethereal level.

Dr. Veronica: Doggy wants to come in. We're listening.

Roy: Hey, hi.

Dr. Veronica: People enjoy seeing that on the film so that's why I let him make an appearance.

Roy: Absolutely. But one thing I will say, it's often times easier to help somebody who thinks they don't believe in God than it is to try to help somebody who thinks they do.

Dr. Veronica: Interesting. Explain that more.

Roy: Well, because oftentimes people who believe they believe in God have a lot of pride around their beliefs. And that pride can keep them from... In other words when you think you know everything then you can't learn. And in my experience this whole process is about unlearning. 

And I have people who come to me who are very religious, in fact one woman in particular you can watch her videos on my website. I want to make sure people understand I don't broadcast who I work with, but some of the people who I've worked with want to be part of my outreach and they volunteer to do video on my website. So please understand, I'm not going to plaster your name out there if you work with me.

One woman's very religious, actually many people who come are very religious. But the thing is I always just say to people look at the pudding. Check the pudding. Because the proof is always in the pudding. Bottom line how's it working. 

The other thing is too Dr. Veronica, I think you understand, I know you hear what I'm saying here. The only thing any of us have to do is ask [No audio 00:26:55] how am I living, what am I believing, what am I doing, what's it costing me?

Dr. Veronica: In other words how's that working for you.

Roy: Well, what's it getting me, what's it costing me, and is that okay. Because we all pay a price. Everybody on this earth pays a price for how they live. We get certain perceived benefits but pay a certain price. You live at Bucks County, you get some perks, you get some benefits, pay a price. Live in Manhattan, get some benefits, pay a price. Everybody in between pays a price. Who's to say for somebody else if that price is okay. Each person has to ask themselves is that okay. And there's no wrong answer.

Dr. Veronica: That sounds like you reap what you sow.

Roy: Absolutely. And there's no wrong answer, because the nature of evolution is evolve we must. And there's no time limit on eternity, right? The universe loves u so much it'll allow us to hurt as long as we need to hurt.

Dr. Veronica: It's true. We all keep banging our heads on the wall in certain areas until we get it right.

Roy: Yeah. And again I was morbidly obese for a number of years. And I deluded myself that it was okay. But what started me toward having to do something about it was panic attacks and all of this stuff. When you bury your emotion, it's like when you bury anything, it's like a volcano the more you press it down the more it wants to explode. And that's what eventually happens.

Not everybody gets to that place. Many people who are morbidly obese that'll end, what's the roll call, the lives of quiet desperation. They just settle in and that's fine. There's no wrong answer. That's probably what I would've done if I hadn't had the panic attacks and the crippling depression, phobias, anxiety, and all the stuff that went with it.

But some people have it so buried, their feelings are so buried that they don't have those things. There's no wrong answer. Each person has to decide for themselves because there's a price for getting better. You have to go through hell to get to heaven, right?

Dr. Veronica: Yes. I believe that we live in the dichotomies. So you have to know down to know up. You have to know black to know white. You have to know good to know bad. You have to have both experience for comparison purposes because that's just the way the human mind works.

Roy: Absolutely. And that's why I would never try to convince anybody that working with me is the thing to do. There's an opportunity here for total freedom. My experience is people come to me usually when the first or second day all their addictions fall away. And if they're overweight they start losing weight effortlessly and which is my only hope because I don't have the power to resist temptation. If I want to eat it I don't have the power not to eat it. My only hope is sweet spirit will remove my desire for those things that aren't good for me and for amount of things that aren't good for me. Because in and of myself I don't have that power. That's my only spirit. 

That's what I'm talking people is having people start to experience that sweet spirit. People come here they're hating their momma. They come here they're here for a few days and start loving their momma. They got all this stuff inside it's hard for people to be able to see themselves as they actually are on their own. Nobody can do this alone.

Dr. Veronica: Yes. You can't do it alone. Please understand, there's no such thing as self-help. You have to have somebody to help you. You need a mentor, a coach, somebody who's going to guide you who's outside that box. I tell people that all the time. Because they want to stay home and they want to read books and watch... I say people are going to the university of Google and good friend with Dr. YouTube. 

This is part of learning. But then you have to know what you don't know and then get to that point where it's so painful, it's so bad that you're going to reach out. But not only just reach out, you're going to do something. You're going implement. Tell me a little bit more. Because your book has chapters on all the different addictions. Are they all different? Why do you break it down like that?

Roy: Well, it's to help people to identify. First off no addict wants to know they're an addict. Nobody wants to think they're an addict. I had so many addictions I didn't think I had any. And the thing is it doesn't matter. Frankly if a person doesn't have an addiction that's fine too. All God's children got problems. It doesn't matter...

Dr. Veronica: In one form or another, yes.

Roy: It doesn't matter what the manifestation is, there's only one problem and there's only one solution. The problem is always this perception of being separate from God. You can't even be separate from God. God and you are one but if you perceive yourself to be separate, you think you are, you act like you are, you feel like you are, for all intents and purposes you are even though you aren't. There's one problem, there's one solution. 

The one solution is the conscious contact, the sweet spirit deep within. And that's what I'm about helping people contact. And that's the only thing that can heal them. That's the only thing that can remove the obsession, the compulsion to overeat or to hurt themselves with anything. And there's never just one thing. It's a myriad of things that people use. Because it kind of goes with the territory. In other words if you got one you've got a lot of other things going on at the same time. Often times we'll use one thing to keep the other thing down.

Dr. Veronica: Let's talk a little bit more about your definition of addiction. You put it in there so people can start to identify... There's commonalities. Some people are going to say, "Am I addict or not?" Are there are a few characteristics that you can tell people that if you're having this or that. You got to give them a symptom. Because we're talking very high hyperbole and all this other type of stuff that people say. Let's get down to it. 

"Roy, Dr. Veronica, how do I know if I'm really addicted? Tell me what I need to do." Because we're very reductionist here. We want to know. I want the checklist. I want the test. So here are a couple of the things.

Roy: Do you deal primarily with people with their eating? Is that what you deal with primarily?

Dr. Veronica: People come to me a lot of times because they're concerned about their weight. They're concerned about... Sometimes they'll come because they're concerned about belly fat. But a lot of times it'll be my thyroid's bothering me. My digestion's bothering me. I'm concerned that my hormones are out of balance. 

Roy: First off we have doctors including you of course that we refer people to for their hormones, or they thyroid, or their adrenals. I don't practice medicine as such. And we have a lot of good doctors including yourself that we refer people to along those lines. But generally speaking overweight is a symptom of overeating. And overeating is a symptom of what's eating you. That's what we're dealing with is what's eating you. 

There's no way on earth that I could abstain from all that I need to abstain from except the grace of God would remove my desire for those things, my need, my requirement for those things. There's nothing I can do. And certainly we know estrogen causes belly fat and we know thyroid and stuff like that. There's issues but those are generally excuses that people use when they don't want to face their real problems.

I take thyroid medication and I take stuff for my adrenals. I'm not saying that those things aren't real. I take things for my neurotransmitters. I'm not saying those things aren't real, they are. But none of those are going to keep me from destroying myself with excess food. Only God can do that, and only I can let it. And I'm about helping people let. Because only god can do it. And only that person can let God do it for them. 

And I'm helping them get themselves out of the way so that the sweet spirit... When I say God I'm not talking about the bearded man in the sky with a clipboard. I'm talking about the sweet spirit deep within. That's where we have to go, deep within.

Dr. Veronica: Now you said in a couple of days usually people start changing. I know you have a 28-day program. People say, "If I can get it in two days, yeah, that's it." Why 28 days?

Roy: That's precisely why we do the 28-day program because the thing is people often think overeating is their problem. And so when they come to me and when they stop overeating they think they're cured. And you and I know that's not true. 

Dr. Veronica: No.

Roy: That's not true because we have to deal with the underlying causes that caused us to have to overeat in the first place. And that's a lifetime. That's not a 28-day program. I only said 28-day program because that's the call that most of us... people who want immediate results that most people can get their head around. People come here, "I don't know if I can do 28 days." And then they're in the 3rd week and say, "Roy, you're never going to kick me out after 28 days, right?" 

Dr. Veronica: Wow.

Roy: I do a 28-day program but I work with them longer if they have a good attitude and want to keep going and want to keep growing and developing. It would start with a 28-day face-to-face and go from there. They don't live here. If they come here from out of town we have them arranged for local housing. Of course some people come here from local. 

Whatever it is it's always lifted. It's just a matter of being willing to let me into their heart so that they can feel safe when people come here with a big wall of fear around their heart. And what I'm about is I'm putting up a big wall of love around their heart so they can gradually lower that wall of fear. So that all that stuff that's inside that needs to be addressed come tumbling out. And then we can sort it out. It's a process and it's absolutely amazing.

Dr. Veronica: You know what I find amazing, you're doing it from a different way. How I work with people, we talk a lot, something about the emotional things that are going on in people's lives and I challenge them a lot. I'm the tough love person. I just think it's amazing how many of them have spiritual revelations.

Roy: That's what happens. Exactly.

Dr. Veronica: I'm hitting at them from a physical side but they have a spiritual revelation and it's beautiful because I say to them, "I'm so happy to see that you're happy now. Because when you came and you first sat down with me and you were having a really hard time making a decision to make the investment of time and your finances. You were so miserable. I saw you hear crying. I knew I could help you but I know that you had to make that decision. I'm so happy because we've been working together for three, four weeks, and you're such a different person now." And they say, "I know it."

It's amazing. I'm not quite sure where it is. I work with people and I always mention these spiritual... I know when people work with me. I'm going to mention those spiritual and emotional pieces. They start to have it on their own. Once they make the decision to make the commitment, and they start on the pathway. 

Or maybe it's because they understand that I'm open to listening in a different way and giving them the type of emotional and spiritual feedback. It's a beautiful thing I got to tell you. Because I have the people who they'll do testimonials for me and they just look so happy. And that's not even everything they can say that's good. 

Roy: You happen to feel same enough to start feeling things that they were previously afraid to feel.

Dr. Veronica: Those are the people who do the best and that have the revelations like that. I'm thinking of people that I know who haven't had the revelation yet. Of course my phone's going to ring in the middle of it. Those people don't have the revelation, those are the people who quit or they just don't get where they want to go.

Roy: I understand that.
