    Join host Amy Zellmer as she chats with Mary Etsy.
    Conquering Concussion by Mary Lee Esty, Ph.D., and C. M. Shifflett presents history, new research, treatments, and 20 years of clinical case histories. These are real stories about real people struggling with post-concussion symptoms: terrible fatigue, headache and body pain, emotional swings, mental fog, insomnia, weight gain and balance problems. It shows how TBI symptoms overlap with other diagnoses such as ADHD and depression, and reveals the link with PTSD. It features neurotherapy, but presents additional therapies that can aid recovery. Topics include:  Head injuries in history, from Henry VIII to Elvis Presley. What happens in concussion, the many symptoms that may appear, and problems with standard testing and treatments. The origins, supporting research, and results of neurofeedback. Detailed case histories of children, adults, and soldiers with memory problems, severe head pain, insomnia, ADHD and PTSD. Medical issues which may need attention before symptoms of concussion can heal.  The rest of the story: What happened to people in this book who never expected to work or function normally ever again. How they regained their skills, jobs, families and lives."

  • Sep 15 ~ Charlotte View: Suffering Not Required. Character Structure Masochist

    in Health

    Charlotte View and the School of Esoteric Healing proudly present the fourth episode of the Character Structure Series. On this episode Jennifer Boose (school director) talks about the Masochist Character Structure.  The so-called Character Structures, recognized in Bioenergetics and Barbara Brennan's spiritual healing methodology, are observably linked to different levels or depths of awareness of the affected people. The masochist defense is developed in an environment where the parents were domineering and gave love in a conditional way. Guilt, shame, and passive-aggressive techniques were all used by the parents to control the child. The masochist character responds by withholding their love and themselves from others. They complain and focus on the negative sides of things. They tend to carry a lot of weight around -- literally and figuratively: stored fat is seen as a sign of masochistic tendencies. Energetically, the masochist sends out tendrils of negative energy that pierce the energy field of others.
    The Character Structure Series is hosted by Jennifer Boose, who holds certifications in Spiritual Energy Healing, Past Life Regression, Life Between Lives Spiritual Regression Therapy, Hypnotherapy,  Geobiology, Sound Healing and is an Awakening Your Light Body instructor.
