Dawson Church, PhD, joins us in today’s episode to talk about how utilising the energy flows in your body can help heal trauma, beat degenerative illnesses and cancer, increase productivity,  up-regulate gene expressions and build character traits. He is a wealth of knowledge who has changed his own life and that of thousands of others popularising EFT techniques and meditation. 

He has conducted dozens of clinical trials and his work with The National Institute for Integrative Healthcare (NIIH) has seen over 21.000 veterans improve their PTSD symptoms. If you know a veteran who is suffering, please refer them to the Veterans Stress Project.

Dr. Church is the author of 3 best-selling books on the topics of Epigenetics, Manifestation and Neuroplasticity – all of which I know you’re going to love:

The Genie in your Genes: Epigenetic Medicine and the New Biology of Intention
Mind to Matter: The Astonishing Science of How Your Brain Creates Material Reality
Bliss Brain: The Neuroscience of Remodeling Your Brain for Resilience, Creativity, and Joy

Please visit his website to download your EFT Mini-Manual and learn about EcoMeditation to boost your immunity. And if you’ve read his books, which I highly recommend you do, please don’t forget to leave him a review on amazon.

We hope you enjoyed today’s episode. If you did, please leave us a review on ApplePodcasts to support us and share it with a person you feel will benefit from this conversation. To get in touch with us, leave us a comment on Youtube or Instagram
