PTP307 - Dean Ornish
In: Podcast2

In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk with Dr. Dean Ornish, about Stress, Abuse, and Relationships. Stress is something that affects us all but to varying degrees. Dr. Ornish explains how stress in a family can affect the children as adults. We spend some time on the idea of how children who are abused in one way or another are more likely to become sick as adults and even die prematurely. However, he does have some good advice on how to combat this prognosis that is important for everyone to hear. As we jump into relationships, you may be surprised by his recommendation for public display of affection in front of the children. And you may be surprised by our opinions about going to bed angry. This is a great episode filled with great wisdom. Be sure to share it on your Facebook or Instagram page!

Dean Ornish, M.D., is the founder and president of the nonprofit Preventive Medicine Research Institute, clinical professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, and the author of six books, all national bestsellers. He has received numerous honors, including the Outstanding Young Alumnus Award from the University of Texas, Austin, and the National Public Health Hero Award from the University of California, Berkeley. Dr. Ornish was recognized as a “TIME 100 Innovator;” by Life magazine as “one of the 50 most influential members of his generation;” by People magazine as “one of the most interesting people of the year;” and by Forbes magazine as “one of the world’s seven most powerful teachers.”
