    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1073

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Stacie Kelly from Victoria BC, an abuse survivor and activist who's serving as the Coordinator for 1st Annual #NoMoreShame Conference 2015, being put on by Trauma University which will be held June 26, 27 & 28th in Portland, Oregon. It's described as "For Survivors. By Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse." Born and raised an Oregonian, Stacie describes herself as, "an exceptionally positive individual who enjoys staying busy." But, she explains, "About three years ago I was diagnosed with Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (C-PTSD). I am a survivor of a decade of incest - an unfortunate multi-generational pattern of abuse that extends as far back as three generations ago. I am on bi-daily antidepressant medication(s) and am currently in weekly somatic counseling." She says, "Childhood trauma is still a relatively new field of study and it is often overshadowed by Veterans and/or people with Traumatic Brain Injuries. My hope is to shed light on the daily life of someone struggling with mental wellness and provide insight on the impact of sexual abuse and silence." And true to form she's not just sitting back waiting for others to make further developments in the field. "I am currently working in a volunteer capacity as a Conference Coordinator for Trauma Recovery University. I speak every day to survivors around the globe who are interested in participating in our conference. It is survivor led and born out of passion to break the cycle of shame, silence and abuse."

    It's time for laughter!!!!

    in Health

    We’ve all heard the saying ‘laughter is the best medicine’ and like most of these sayings it has some truth in it. The positive effects of laughter and a sense of humour cover not only the psychological but also the physical and the lifestyle aspects too. Humour and laughter are infectious and can bring people together and make them forget their troubles and one of the best tools to maintain a positive outlook and good health.  Laughter is correlated with mental health and has many social and interpersonal benefits. With all these benefits, laughter is an antidepressant, pain killer, workout, stress reliever and a great way to make friends and strengthen bonds. And best of all – it’s free! Join Dr. Darren into the heart of the matter of laughter. Infintie Love & Gratitude :-)

    An Investigation Into the Sudden Deaths of Soldiers Featuring Dr. Fred Baughman

    in Politics Progressive

    An Investigation Into the Sudden Deaths of Soldiers---Dr.Fred Baughman, Stan White, Walter Davis and Laurie Anspach, Director of Citizens Commission on Human Rights Florida


    Dr. Fred Baughman, neurologist and Stan White  will open your eyes to what most of our world has not event considered. Dr.Baughman, a seasoned physician, who has discovered and described medical diseases, read the May 24, 2008, Charleston Gazette article "Vets taking Post Traumatic Stress Disorder drugs die in sleep," and opened and financed his own investigation into these unexplained deaths.


    Andrew White, Eric Layne, Nicholas Endicott and Derek Johnson, all in their twenties, were four West Virginia veterans who died in their sleep in early 2008. There were no signs of suicide or of a multi-drug "overdose" leading to coma, as claimed by the Inspector General of the VA. All had been diagnosed "PTSD"--a psychological diagnosis, not a disease (physical abnormality) of the brain. All were on the same prescribed drug cocktail, Seroquel (antipsychotic), Paxil (antidepressant) and Klonopin (benzodiazepine) and all appeared "normal" when they went to sleep.

    Health in your Hands: Essential oils that can help Sleep Disorders

    in Music

     Health in your Hands: Essential oils that can help Sleep Disorders 


    All stress-related conditions, including insomnia, respond well to aromatherapy.


    How to use essential oils


    For skin application the essential oil must be diluted in a vegetable carrier oil such as cold-pressed sunflower oil or sweet almond oil. Use 7 -10 drops of essential oil to 25ml (five teaspoons) of carrier oil for adults, 3-5 drops for children under seven and 1-3 drops for children under the age of three. Do not use essential oils on newborn babies.


    Any oil can be used in the bath. Add 5-10 drops for adults, 3-5 drops for children over two, and only one drop of a very gentle oil such as chamomile or lavender for younger children. 
    Inhalation is also effective. Put one or two drops of a relaxing oil onto a handkerchief and tuck it inside your pillow to help you sleep.


    A combination of essential oils may be used.


    Essential Oils for Sleep


    A relaxing bath with essential oils of Roman camomile and geranium will help a person to unwind before sleep. A glass of camomile tea will complete the process.


    A relaxant effect may be provided by oils of camomile, lavender, neroli, rose, and marjoram. Add a few drops to your bathwater or sprinkle a few drops on a handkerchief and inhale.


    The following essential oils may be useful for management of sleep.


    Benzoin (Styrax benzoin)


    Useful for: Insomnia, anxiety.


    Caution: Can cause dermatitis in some people.


    Jasmine (Jasminum officinalis)


    Jasmine is relaxing and soothing, antidepressant, sedative, aphrodisiac, and expectorant. It is non-toxic, and non-irritant.


    Useful for: Insomnia, depression, apathy, nervous exhaustion, stress, catarrh, breathing difficulties.
