  • Rachel W, Pituitary Interview

    in Health

    Part of Rachel's bio: "It’s hard to say when my exact “journey” began with what we now know is Cushing’s Disease.  Both my Mom and my doctor believe I’ve had this for years, when I started having period problems, migraines and unexplained weight gain in high school.
    I can safely say that I started really noticing/documenting this last round of health issues in the spring of 2007.  I can remember my first doctor’s visit regarding the onset of this in spring 2006, but the majority of my health issues really began a year later.  I’d always suffered from migraines, but only around my menstrual periods.  I took birth control to help with that, and it also helped regulate my periods for the majority of my adolescent and young adult life."

    in Health

    Matt Talford, author of " From Fear To Faith"  visits Perfeclty Healthy And Toned Radio
    At the age of 37, in peak physical condition and at the height of his corporate IT career, Matt seemed to have it all: a lovely wife, a high-profile career and active involvement in the community. But over a span of about eight months, he went from playing daily tennis matches and running 12 miles a week, to barely being able to climb a flight of stairs; and just weeks after his 38th birthday, he received a dreadful diagnosis that would forever change his life.  From Fear to Faith: A Survivor’s Story, is an inspiring tale of how one man battled courageously against unfavorable odds to overcome a rare and deadly form of cancer.  In From Fear to Faith, author Matt Talford takes you on a journey through his personal war on cancer and shares the physical, mental and spiritual tools that inspired him to reverse what he referred to as “a slow death,” and how he courageously fought to overcome a dreadful condition that to this day, he refuses to take ownership of, choosing the words, “I was diagnosed with…” as opposed to “I had…”

  • Urban Therapy with Sun #135 Lose Weight And Get Healthy Or Bust

    in Health

    Who doesn't want to get their weight to a manageable level and stop getting sick all the time? Who doesn't want to look great in their clothes and receive compliments wherever they go? Who likes to spend hours in the mirror obsessing about what to wear and how it really looks to others? Who doesn't want to wipe their minds free of insecurity and self-doubt? Would you agree that most people want to eat the right things? Why do people really make excuses for eating a lot of unhealthy and non-nutritional foods? Is it simply because they taste good or is there a deeper reason at work? Is it true that some people are too embarrassed to workout in front of others so they either just keep living in an unhealthy way or they try more dangerous weight loss methods so they can look good enough to go to the gym? Are there support groups for that? Is there help? What kind of help is there available? This Wednesday we will have Linda Smith of Linda's Vegetarian Village (6381 Germantown Ave Phila, PA 19144) on hand to assist us with some great information about Healthy and tasty vegan meals, healing herbs and the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and how it can be achieved without sacrificing taste or time.
    Make sure you check this show out. Your life could depend on it and it does.
