A special guest sits down with Regan to speak candidly on how growing up the son of an alcoholic doctor, and his own subsequent substance abuse, shaped all aspects of his early life. An accident led him to take a spirit and cleansing quest from the guidance of a shaman in the jungles of Peru, to Iboga root treatment in Mexico.
In this episode, Regan and Chris cover wide-ranging topics such as neurotransmitter balancing, brain health, plant medicine, and seeing life from a spiritual perspective. Hear more about Chris discovering how we shelter our egos with judgments and skewed perceptions that ultimately hold us back from being balanced, happy, and truly healthy.
