We've all had those moments. You know, the ones when we just seem to have failed at everything, nothing is going right, there doesn't seem to be anyone around to help nor would they understand. What do you do when you fail and fail hard? Giving up always sounds like a good plan, but eventually we pick ourselves up. But where do we begin? This week Pedram Shojai welcomes a guest who found herself hitting rock bottom, but turned herself around to become a sports nutritionist and certified personal trainer, Natalie Jill. She talks about her mission and the background that led her to become the person that she is today. How did she rebound from life's disappointments, setbacks, and tragedies?

Earth Day is tomorrow and to help celebrate, Pedram Shojai has welcomed Tero Isokauppila, co-founder of Four Sigma Foods, to come talk about mushrooms! What could be more earthy than mushrooms? They're a super food that was used by many ancient cultures and are in fact used in about 40% of the medicines we use today! Unfortunately when people think of mushrooms nowadays many think about psychedelic "magic mushrooms" but there is so much more to them than that! What are the myths and misconceptions surrounding mushrooms? Did you know they mushrooms exist in their own kingdom classification? They don't belong to any other plant kingdom and there are literally millions of mushrooms on earth! When using mushrooms medicinally, what can it help? How can mushrooms help adrenal fatigue? What about as a stress reducer or a sleep aid? How can we all introduce mushrooms into our daily lives?

This week on The Urban Monk Pedram Shojai welcomes a man he met when he appeared on The Dr. Oz Show, Donovan Green. He's a certified ACE and IFA personal trainer, a black belt martial artist, a kick boxing instructor, an integrative nutritionist, and author the book No Excuses Fitness. Donovan is also Dr. Oz's personal trainer! It's hard to imagine that he grew up in a tough part of the Bronx. How did a young man growing up in the Bronx in the mid-1980s amidst the crack epidemic tough it out, resist the peer pressure, and get into the world of fitness? On top of all of that, he wasn't a fit child. How did fitness become a passion for Donovan? Now that he's a very fit person, is training and teaching still a passion for Donovan? How can someone struggling with their environment break through to find their own path to success?

We all know of its importance, we know how terrible life is if we don't get enough of it, we all know we need to get some sleep! How important is sleep? What sort of health detriments can occur if we don't get enough? To help understand, Pedram Shojai invites Shawn Stevenson to The Urban Monk. Shawn has literally written a book on sleep and talks about the incredible ways getting more and higher quality sleep can affect your body to run at a healthier normal. What other changes can a person make to help get more rest? How do the activities we partake in while awake affect the quality of our sleep? How does sleep help detox the brain? How can caffeine disrupt the sleep cycle? And how can good quality sleep affect the way our bodies operate during waking hours?
