In this podcast I interview bestselling author and journalist Pamela Ryckman about her new book, Candace Pert: Genius, Greed, and Madness in the World of Science, Pamela talks about the life and career of one of the leading researchers of the mind, brain and body connection, the renowned neuropharmacologist Candace Pert. As Pamela notes, she played pivotal roles in major movements in both science and politics. Unfortunately, she was sabotaged by mentors and colleagues keen to profit from her brilliance.

referring to my last comment! it was my device settings! Dr Leaf sounded like she was on speed 🤣. The settings must have accidentally shifted. all corrected now 😁

Has this podcast been sped up? it was unusually fast speech. may just be my devise but I'm wondering if it was a recording fault. only mentioning because it made it very difficult to listen to. 🤔

thank God for the fast forward! basically a giant infomercial with a few bits of somewhat useful information. geeze. almost not worth listening to. Definitely not worth it if you cannot fast forward.

How wonderful that I can now see what I've learned from you in practise! I listen with more deliberation and I can actually visualise the process of thinking, feeling and choosing. I am still an infant in this process so I am so excited at how much more enriched and stronger I will be as I become more practiced at neurocycling. Thank you so much, from me, my family and my friends because we are all gaining from me learning. ❤

Power is internal, silent inner knowing and claiming self. People will not be treated by you unless they have an issue in themselves. They will be drawn to you instead.

I was in an emotionally abusive relationship during my college years. In the beginning I also thought well he has never hit me physically but, that's the insidious nature of such relationships, they manipulate you, make you feel guilty and sudden outbursts of anger and breaking objects. It was a very traumatic experience of my life, I lost my self esteem and confidence. I'm on a healing journey.

the information provided on this podcast is so valuable, some people do not have access to mental health services at least not at such depth and understanding. It's very helpful, thank you

I think if Doctor let speakers finish their sentence and then she starts that's better...

Thank you for your wise words. Your honest, knowledgeable and heartfelt approach to managing the mind is the most helpful guide I have happened across in my years of trying to understand myself, my family and friends. Jacqui 😊

Thank you Caroline and Nicole. I have just discovered both of you after listening to Dr Will Cole's podcast. I have purchased Nicole's book and have just started to do the work. I have witnessed how the brain can change when you nurture your mind by consistently practising gratitude and focused breath work (that I started during covid restrictions in 2020 that left me open and vulnerable to 'stuff' that came up). I am so hopeful that by continuing my personal work I will be able to lead my fullest life and be the parent I need to be rather than the parent who, despite trying really hard, has become a version of her own parents (good and bad!). I think your approaches share commonalities and are complimentary. I can't wait to work through both books and am excited for being able to report back to you. Thank you for YOUR work. 😊 Jacqui
