Episode 89 – Layne Garrett, Sexual Trauma Therapist

Were you aware that every 68 seconds, an American suffers from sexual assault? It’s a sobering statistic that knows no boundaries from race or even sex. Females are most often the victim; however, males can also be subjected to the horrific act. Layne Garrett, LPC, joins Ken & Eric on The Gut Check Project to discuss the barriers to helping those who may need an escape from the tortuous burden of having been a victim of a crime they never deserved. Layne’s service is a noble cause and one that we all probably may underestimate the actual number of people needing help. A former teacher, Layne has rededicated her career to hellion those that suffer in silence. But nobody needs to suffer alone, and there is hope to overcome the trauma. Making yourself aware of the clues might even provide some insight, and you may notice a loved one of your own might need to talk with someone like Layne. Join Layne with Ken & Eric as they discuss what sexual trauma therapy looks like, what goals can be attained, techniques like EMDR, and why there truly is how for a better life for all victims of traumatic events.

If you’ve ever looked at the snot dripping from a cow’s nose, and it made you think of becoming “frisky”… well, as strange as that sounds, you are not alone! (This story shows how wild ideas become meaningful science.) Ken & Eric hit the ground running in the early days of COVID, and over time, it’s actually demonstrated that long-time accepted reasoning and application of physiology concepts actually paid off. What did the inflammation of COVID or even the mRNA vaccine do to the public’s microbe? What can we do to improve our current state of covid struggles? WWYMS… What Would Your Microbiome Say? This an easy question to practice asking yourself before you embark upon a meal, an activity choice, or a stressful situation. It might even condition your decisions to ultimately be more beneficial for a healthier life! Quick hit topics on this show, covering a good amount of ground.

Also, if enjoying an occasional alcoholic beverage sometimes comes with a cost of a hangover (or worse) what might be the cause, and could there actually be a remedy by preparing your body for the libations themselves? Tune in to the Gut Check project and listen as Ken & Eric address these popular topic suggestions from GCP viewers and listeners JUST LIKE YOU!


Episode 86 – Navy SEAL Ryan “Birdman” Parrott

Ryan “Birdman” Parrott was a trained sniper in his SEAL team. After transitioning out of the SEAL teams, there was an assumption that they were safe back home on American soil. On January 2nd, 2019, Birdman received a call from a teammate stating that his SEAL team partner David R. Metcalf had taken his own life. As he navigated his own grief, Birdman was inspired to do more than mourn. The issues facing war-tattered and battle-worn veterans are far beyond just a label of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). Birdman has assembled a world-class team of Physicians, Ph.D.’s, Phycologists, Physiatrists, Sports Physiologists, and former Special Operators to make up the Human Performance Project. The mission is to create a manual to guide the tactical population, enabling them to thrive upon entry, during, and post service. Ken & Eric are honored to host Birdman on the GCP.
