    Podcast Summary

    • The Power of Food Choices and the Importance of Homemade MealsChanging your diet can improve your health, and Danielle Walker's cookbook showcases how inclusive and enjoyable dietary changes can be for everyone, while also emphasizing the value of homemade meals and the importance of gathering around food.

      Changing your diet can have a significant impact on your health. Danielle Walker's experience with Ulcer colitis and her journey to control her symptoms by adopting a grain-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free diet highlights the power of food choices. Her cookbook, Against All Grain, offers delicious recipes that are not only beneficial for her autoimmune condition but also suitable for her whole family. This demonstrates that dietary changes can be inclusive and enjoyable for everyone. Additionally, Walker's grandmother's cooking traditions show the importance of gathering around food and the value of homemade meals. Overall, this story emphasizes the potential benefits of reevaluating and adjusting our diets to improve well-being and promote healthier lifestyles.

    • The Importance of Effective Communication in Dealing with Complex ConditionsEffective communication between healthcare professionals and patients is crucial in navigating complex conditions and finding the right treatment. Patience and perseverance are necessary for managing inflammatory bowel diseases.

      Receiving a diagnosis can be both a relief and a source of confusion. For Danielle Walker, being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis validated her concerns and assured her that there was indeed something going on. However, it also led to frustration as she was sent home with minimal information and left to navigate her condition on her own. This highlights the importance of effective communication between healthcare professionals and patients, especially when dealing with complex conditions. While medication was eventually able to calm her symptoms, the process was not immediate and came with debilitating side effects. This emphasizes the need for patience and perseverance in finding the right treatment for inflammatory bowel diseases.

    • The Importance of Seeking Alternative Sources for Medical InsightsSeeking information from various sources and considering alternative perspectives can be essential in managing health issues and finding effective solutions.

      Sometimes alternative sources of information can provide valuable insights that mainstream medical professionals may overlook. When Danielle Walker's medication wasn't working and her health was deteriorating, it was an unconventional British doctor in Uganda who first mentioned the connection between her autoimmune condition and her diet. He explained the importance of gut bacteria and the potential negative effects of over-sanitization and a high-sugar, high-carbohydrate diet. This revelation sparked something in Danielle, even though she was very ill at the time. She then turned to online forums and chat boards to further explore the connection between food and her condition. This highlights the significance of seeking information from various sources and considering alternative perspectives in managing health issues.

    • The Transformative Power of the Specific Carbohydrate DietFollowing a specific carbohydrate diet can lead to significant symptom improvement in individuals with certain health conditions, inspiring others to find relief and share their experiences.

      Adopting a specific carbohydrate diet (SCD) can significantly improve symptoms for individuals with certain health conditions. Danielle Walker's experience with the SCD showed her that she was not alone in her suffering and that there were others finding relief through this diet. The SCD involves eliminating grains, lactose, refined sugar, and processed foods, among other restrictions. Despite the extensive list of forbidden foods, Walker found that following the SCD led to a remarkable decrease of 75 to 80% in her symptoms within just two days. This transformative outcome prompted Walker to create a blog, "Against All Grain," to share her recipes and experiences with others facing similar challenges.

    • From friends and family to millions: The organic growth of Danielle Walker's blog Against All GrainThe power of personal connections and relatable content can help a small platform grow into a community, highlighting the importance of finding a niche and staying true to one's unique voice.

      Danielle Walker's blog, Against All Grain, grew organically through word of mouth and social media sharing. Starting with just a few tens of people, it eventually reached millions, demonstrating the power of personal connections and relatable content. What began as a platform to share recipes and health updates with friends and family quickly expanded to a community of people seeking relief from autoimmune diseases. This unexpected growth made Walker realize the widespread need for healthy eating options and inspired her to continue sharing her experiences and recipes with a larger audience. Despite not being a trained chef, Walker's passion and dedication to providing gluten-free, grain-free, and dairy-free options resonated with a broad range of individuals, highlighting the importance of finding a niche and staying true to one's unique voice.

    • From Cravings to Passion: Danielle Walker's Grain-Free JourneyWith determination and creativity, Danielle Walker turned her own dietary restrictions into a mission to recreate beloved dishes for others, showing that passion can lead to something bigger.

      Danielle Walker's journey to creating grain-free, dairy-free, and paleo compliant recipes stemmed from her own cravings and the desire to share food traditions with her son. She started by recreating childhood favorites like chocolate chip cookies, and as her blog gained popularity, she began asking her readers what they missed. This led to a mission and passion to recreate southern dishes and other favorites for those who couldn't enjoy them due to dietary restrictions. At the time, finding the necessary ingredients was a challenge, requiring multiple grocery store visits and online orders. Despite her initial doubt, Danielle's work eventually expanded beyond a personal blog, showing that passion and determination can lead to something bigger, even without formal training or a food network show.

    • From Blogging to Bestselling Cookbook Author: Danielle Walker's Unexpected JourneyPassion, meeting a niche need, and building connections with readers can open doors to unforeseen opportunities and success in unexpected ways.

      Danielle Walker's journey from blogging to becoming a renowned cookbook author demonstrates the power of passion and meeting a niche need. Initially, Walker started her blog as a way to share recipes that catered to individuals with autoimmune diseases, aiming to provide them with delicious options that wouldn't trigger their symptoms. She didn't charge for her recipes but utilized Amazon affiliate links and sidebar ads to earn a small income. Seeing the growing demand and excitement from her readers, Walker decided to create an ebook with multiple recipes, allowing her to share more content quickly. However, before she could publish the ebook, she received an unexpected offer from a publisher, resulting in her first cookbook. This unexpected turn of events highlights the value of providing valuable content and finding connections with readers that can lead to unforeseen opportunities.

    • The Power of a Dedicated AudienceBuilding a loyal audience and consistently delivering value is crucial for success.

      Having a dedicated and passionate audience can make a significant impact. Despite only having 3,000 followers on her blog, Danielle Walker's cookbook, Against All Grains, became a bestseller. This success was partly due to the power of these "super fans" who consistently supported her work. Additionally, the timing was favorable, as the CrossFit paleo movement was gaining popularity. Walker's book stood out with its inclusion of 165 recipes, each accompanied by a photo, which resonated with readers. She also tested and refined her recipes with the help of her audience, showcasing her commitment to delivering quality content. This story highlights the importance of building a loyal audience and consistently delivering value to them.

    • Overcoming Introversion to Connect with OthersPutting yourself out there and establishing a personal connection with your audience can have a powerful and positive impact on their lives.

      Danielle Walker initially struggled with putting herself out there and becoming a public figure. As an introvert, she found it easier to share her experiences and recipes through her blog, rather than being in the spotlight. However, she realized that people needed someone they could trust and relate to, especially when dealing with intimate topics such as ulcerative colitis. Recognizing the importance of having a face behind the brand, she strategically decided to put herself on the cover of her first book to connect with her audience on a deeper level. Despite feeling self-promotional initially, she learned that her presence and relatability brought about positive changes in people's lives. This experience taught her the power of personal connection and the impact it can have on others.

    • Danielle Walker's journey: From blog to brand by listening to audience and adapting to their needs.Success comes from actively engaging with your audience, understanding their concerns, and evolving your offerings to provide comprehensive solutions that meet their demands.

      Danielle Walker's journey from a blog to a successful brand highlights the importance of listening to your audience and adapting to their needs. Initially starting out as a cookbook author, Danielle realized that her audience was not just looking for recipes, but also wanted guidance on lifestyle choices and ingredient recommendations. By actively engaging with her followers and understanding their concerns, she expanded her business offerings to include apparel, spice mixes, and digital courses. This allowed her to provide a comprehensive solution and make healthy eating more accessible and less intimidating for her audience. Danielle's success serves as a reminder that constantly evolving and catering to the demands of your customers can lead to remarkable growth and impact.

    • Danielle Walker's Accidental Entrepreneur JourneyPursuing passion can lead to unexpected opportunities. Danielle Walker's journey teaches us to embrace our skills, adapt to market demands, and inspire others by combining traditional and natural approaches to promote well-being.

      Danielle Walker's journey as an accidental entrepreneur highlights the power of passion and purpose. While she didn't initially plan to monetize her creations, she saw a market for her work and tapped into her marketing and business skills to make her offerings more accessible to others. By showcasing her cooking digitally and demonstrating that healthy food can be delicious and easy to make, she has inspired and empowered countless individuals to try her recipes. Despite facing criticism from those who question the scientific validity of her approach, Danielle remains open to the synergy between western medicine and natural remedies, emphasizing the potential benefits of a clean paleo diet in conjunction with medication. Her story reminds us to follow our passions, innovate, and prioritize the well-being of others.

    • The Power of Food and Authenticity in Health and CreativityDiet and nutrition can greatly impact health, and individuals in the culinary and blogging space should prioritize authenticity and finding their unique voice to make a meaningful impact.

Additionally, she encourages individuals entering the culinary and blogging space to find their passion, differentiate themselves, and prioritize authenticity in their approach. By finding a unique voice and focusing on delivering value to their audience, aspiring creators can stand out in the saturated world of online resources.

    KAYAK: Paul English (2021)

    Paul English is a perpetual founder. Since high school, he's started 3 philanthropies and 8 companies—ranging from e-commerce, to gaming, to GetHuman, a site that helps users access human customer support. His best-known venture is probably KAYAK, a travel website launched in 2004 over two gin-and-tonics with co-founder Steve Hafner. Using a simple interface, KAYAK specialized in search; and it made partners out of potential rivals like Orbitz and Expedia by charging them a fee to send users to their sites. Eventually KAYAK became one of the most-searched "K" words on Google, and in 2012, it sold to Priceline for $1.8 billion. A few years later, Paul started yet another company, Lola.com—and says he plans to launch many more.

    American Giant: Bayard Winthrop

    American Giant: Bayard Winthrop

    Bayard Winthrop founded American Giant in 2011 with the simple idea to sell clothes made entirely in America at a time when most apparel manufacturing had moved overseas. The first struggle was finding all the components—the cotton, the buttons, the zippers, the rivets; the next was finding people to actually do the work—the dying, the napping, the sewing and the finishing. Once Bayard did all that he ended up with his first product, a plain hooded sweatshirt. But soon after a viral article proclaimed it “the greatest hoodie ever made” Bayard faced a  backlog of orders that took him almost three years to fulfill. Today, American Giant has expanded their line to include all the basics: t-shirts, denim, flannel, and accessories, still entirely produced in the U.S.

    Spin Master/PAW Patrol: Ronnen Harary (2021)

    Ronnen Harary built a 4 billion dollar toy company without relying on market research or focus groups. Instead, he believed wholeheartedly in intuition: the "ah-hah" moment that comes from thinking like a 7-year old. Over a 25-year period, he and his Spin Master partners launched innumerable hit toys and amusements, including Air Hogs, Bakugan, and the smash hit franchise PAW Patrol. Spin Master's journey began in the mid-1990s, when Ronnen and his friend Anton Rabie began selling the Earth Buddy, a chia-pet-like novelty gift made of pantyhose, sawdust, and grass seed. Today, it's a publicly traded company with a portfolio that includes TV shows, video games, and toys ranging from puzzles to plush.

    Dominique Ansel’s invention of the Cronut — an inspired liaison between croissant and donut — was supposed to be a one-time indulgence for Mother’s Day.

Named the World’s Best Pastry Chef in 2017, he has found an entrepreneurial sweet spot in three brick-and-mortar locations and a mail-order business, which will overnight a Cronut to your door, sans the line, and scalpers be damned.

    In this episode of Ask Dr. Doreen, the founder of the Center for Autism and Related Disorders discusses speech in children with autism, sound therapy, repetitive movements and more. Check it out!
     
    06:06 - Good morning Shannon and Dr. Doreen. My question is: Why  does my 7 year old son not spontaneously comment on anything or shows initiation to communicate? He only talks when He needs something. I feel defeated because I have seen kids around his age with years of therapy already having conversations and saying how they feel but my son is not there yet.
     10:43 - Free Skills Lesson, How to get started training with ABA Services, for Educators, Free “Starting to Teach” Lesson
     14:46 What is your opinion on Tomatis Method ( sound therapy) ?
     22:31 - What is your opinion of stem cells as a treatment for autism?
     24:13 - How would Dr. Doreen treat repetitive movements. its automatically reinforcing and hard for him to be aware of his movements. could you please tell us how you would reduce hand flapping behavior? its affecting his academics and he also has ADHD. Can you talk about continuing to follow a whole food diet and continuing organic and eating healthy.
     35:41 - Do you find children diagnosed ASD has temperature regulation issues. I work with several individuals overheat easily and are constantly drinking water. Is there a condition for this? Other medical diagnoses have been ruled out such as diabetes and thyroid.
     36:32 -  I just found out that UCSD has a video game that’s been FDA approved for ADHD treatment. Also helps some with autism.
     39:32 Do herbal remedies help?
     40:51  - My oldest daughter turned 10 last week. She asked for a book on archaeology so that is what she got. Not an easy-to-read one like children's archaeology books, but really an overview of archaeology in more complex terms. It was a gamble, but she has been reading from it and from what I hear, she understands it as well. I should add, she is autistic. In her case, it makes it pretty tough to make social connections, but she is extra interested in subjects like math, history, and physics. My daughter hates fictional stories and thus she had a lot of trouble reading that book, which made the teacher believe she did well by taking the archaeology book away. Now, this happened more often. The teacher has taken away her math book, a card game she uses to practice image forming in her head (based on the memory palace technique, for those familiar with it), and she called my daughter childish for playing pokemon go. All things she likes to do, and I don't mind her doing them because she doesn't harm anyone with them. We had a talk about that with the school director as well, and it went fine for a while. But now with the archaeology book incident, the teacher decided that it was my fault. She came with all sorts of arguments aimed at how I should have pushed her to do things for her own age rather than let her find her own way. I have to say, it hurt me. She is my first daughter and I really try hard to do well, but I know that I make mistakes. Is this one of them? Am I really leaving her too free by letting her choose what she wants and likes?
     47:44 - My son is 5 and I’m at a loss on how to change a particular behavior. He bangs his right hand on tables constantly and also claps his hands very hard, they sound like clap toys. It literally hurts my ears. The function is automatic. I’ve tried to replace the banging on the table with giving him bongs to bang on and he will only use it for a few seconds then goes right back to banging the table. Even worse than that is the clapping. I’m at a loss. I don’t know what to do and I’m going crazy. I’m so overwhelmed with all the noise and the pitch of the noise. I know automatic function is the hardest behavior to change. Any ideas? Thank you very much.
     54:52 - How can I stop my child 10 from watching weird videos like kids tantruming when I ask him he says I want to see how they react so I don’t do that but that’s exactly what he does.

    22:38 My four year old (with ASD) is pushing his 3 year old brother.  Hard to the ground and worse he seems to like doing it.  I am horrified and frightened.  To add to the situation my mother in law saw him do this and is telling everyone in the family that it is because he has autism and no empathy.  Help!

    33:04 My son is one of those hard core cases.  Everyday is a battle.  He is 22.  I feel like I have tried everything and that everyone has given up on us – on him and me.  My choices seem to be to drop him off at a facility that I don’t believe to be reputable or to simply take the chaos that is my life.  We don’t sleep. We live in fear of another out burst.  He communicates with an ipad but it is not unusual for him to break his ipad.  I have 4 in the shop being repaired right now.  I don’t believe anyone understands. 

    45:35 Where can I get information about which diet I should try for my 4 year old who is NV and has diarehhia  every day of his life.

    56:30 My 16 year old is mostly happy but when he is sad it is catastrophic, everything is horrible…it scares me.  Then he seems to snap out of it but as he ages it seems more extreme and to last longer.  Does the dr recommend meds

    06:06 - Good morning Shannon and Dr. Doreen. My question is: Why  does my 7 year old son not spontaneously comment on anything or shows initiation to communicate? He only talks when He needs something. I feel defeated because I have seen kids around his age with years of therapy already having conversations and saying how they feel but my son is not there yet.

     40:51  - My oldest daughter turned 10 last week. She asked for a book on archaeology so that is what she got. Not an easy-to-read one like children's archaeology books, but really an overview of archaeology in more complex terms. It was a gamble, but she has been reading from it and from what I hear, she understands it as well. I should add, she is autistic. In her case, it makes it pretty tough to make social connections, but she is extra interested in subjects like math, history, and physics. My daughter hates fictional stories and thus she had a lot of trouble reading that book, which made the teacher believe she did well by taking the archaeology book away. Now, this happened more often. The teacher has taken away her math book, a card game she uses to practice image forming in her head (based on the memory palace technique, for those familiar with it), and she called my daughter childish for playing pokemon go. All things she likes to do, and I don't mind her doing them because she doesn't harm anyone with them. We had a talk about that with the school director as well, and it went fine for a while. But now with the archaeology book incident, the teacher decided that it was my fault. She came with all sorts of arguments aimed at how I should have pushed her to do things for her own age rather than let her find her own way. I have to say, it hurt me. She is my first daughter and I really try hard to do well, but I know that I make mistakes. Is this one of them? Am I really leaving her too free by letting her choose what she wants and likes?
     47:44 - My son is 5 and I’m at a loss on how to change a particular behavior. He bangs his right hand on tables constantly and also claps his hands very hard, they sound like clap toys. It literally hurts my ears. The function is automatic. I’ve tried to replace the banging on the table with giving him bongs to bang on and he will only use it for a few seconds then goes right back to banging the table. Even worse than that is the clapping. I’m at a loss. I don’t know what to do and I’m going crazy. I’m so overwhelmed with all the noise and the pitch of the noise. I know automatic function is the hardest behavior to change. Any ideas? Thank you very much.
     54:52 - How can I stop my child 10 from watching weird videos like kids tantruming when I ask him he says I want to see how they react so I don’t do that but that’s exactly what he does.
