    Ask Dr. Applewhite About Perceptions of Beauty and Disability

    in Education

    People with visible and non-visible physical disabilities are reminded constantly by advertisements that able-bodied persons are beautiful, productive, and successful. It was not so long ago that people of color experienced this lack of inclusion and were not portrayed with positive images. Unfortunately, the ongoing protests in the media make it clear that the perceptions held about People with Disabilities, as well as Blacks and other Non-White groups is still in need of change. Supermodel Beverly Johnson is our Special Guest and will share a unique perspective of how perceptions of beauty and disability can be changed. Our goal at White Apple Institute is to encourage positive images and perceptions that will enhance education and workforce success for Persons with Disability.Listen to Veterans with VET2VET Talk at the close of every show. Your one-time or monthly recurring tax-deductible donation of $5 or more at http://whiteappleinstitute.org will support our radio broadcasts.

    Ask Dr. Applewhite About the Potential of Genius and Mental Disability

    in Education

    Unfortunately, one of the most overlooked and devalued groups of people are those with disabilities. In the USA, the most progressive country in the world, there is still great disparity in the treatment and access to school and work opportunities for differently-abled persons, especially those with non-visible and mental disabilities.  We can openly discuss the disparity by our willingness to consider the potential of genius within every human being, regardless of the level of their abilities. Our special guest is Dr. Will Moreland, a military veteran and author of the critically acclaimed book Genius Potential.  He is known as  America's #1 Leadership Life Trainer and appears frequently on national television shows to share his insights on leadership, personal development and current events.

    The HD View Ask Dr. Goodman Show

    in Health

    Let's talk about caregiving!  Tune in today as we talk with Dr. Goodman about the challenges of caregiving for our HD and JHD loved ones.  Many of us are dealing with so much loss before the loss and after the loss of our loved ones.  If you are a caregiver you know what I'm talking about. One person states, "On top of the personal stress, there is also the stress of maintaining one's home: replacing broken glass, punched doors, cleaning the furniture, not having friends over as often which lends into losing many people. Many of these "things," which is actually part of one's home community, go to pot so to speak. Even the outside of the home becomes shabby....all this lends to the stress of a caregiver."


    In trying to identify how many of us are caregiving, I found that it's really impossible to know the numbers because of the level of stress that the caregiver is under 24/7.  This stress does not let up; it only intensifies. Those of us who are under this kind of stress don't have time to answer surveys or polls. The question is how can we live like this?  Who will help us?  It's our own community who are so giving and caring and supportive, that's who.  


    Thank you HD Community for all that you do; for your committment to help others. You are amazing!

    The HD View - Ask Dr Goodman Show

    in Health

     


    Tonight our topic for discussion is “Gastrointestinal Problems in Huntington's disease”


    Also read Dr. Goodman’s article http://hddrugworks.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=341&Itemid=30


    Dr. Goodman writes, “Human study shows that inflammation in the esophagus (swallowing tube) and stomach is common and occurs more frequently in Huntington's disease (HD) as it progresses. Study also shows that individuals often do not complain. Lower GI function has not been investigated in individuals with HD, but if mouse models of HD are predictive, we can expect problems there too.  But the biggest contributor to gut distress in HD is likely due to medication side effects, less intake of water and more sedentary lifestyle as the disease progresses…”
