Please join me in welcoming Dr. Ana Durand, Professor and clinical practitioner at Indiana University Medical School. Her current research is on motor functioning after injury to the brain. This will be a very informative show that you will not want to miss!
It’s been well known for years that brain function and mental clarity diminish as we age. But recent research shows that this decrease may set in much earlier than originally expected. A recent 7 year study by Neurobiology of Aging found an urgent need for a way to preserve brain function and capacity well into one’s mid and late life stages.
And it's not just an aging issue either. People of all ages are suffering more and more from fatigue or “brain fog” during the course of any given day.
So what do we do?
Luckily, LifeWave has created breakthrough techology called Theta Mind specifically designed to promote superior cognitive function as well as
Supports focus, attention and memory
Helps to protect the brain from free radical damage
I've invited the Doctor of Health and Exercise Science and Master of Asian Medicine Dr. Dennis Lobstein to come on my show to talk about how these all-natural acupuncture without needles technology can effectively improve brain function and mental clarity for people of all ages.
Call-in to have your questions answered at the number above.

You learn in school and are fixed in your habits and thoughts but is that the end of wiring your brain? Is there a set age where the brain starts to decline regardless of anything else going on in your life? Do you have control over your body or do you give up when things start to falter?
Brant Cortright, Ph.D., author of The Neurogenesis Diet and Lifestyle will be sharing a proactive plan to keep your brain and body functioning at optimum levels. Brant explores the body, mind and spirit connections that are intertwined in our life. When something is out of balance, the system starts to decline or suffer unless you notice and take action. Is aging the 'reason' for your decining brain health?

Join me, Michael W Idell this Friday February 5th at 5:30 p.m. till 6:50 p.m. Pacific time ( that's 8:30 p.m. till 9:50 p.m. Eastern Time ) on Brain Injury Radio Network as your host.
The topic of the week is "Let's Stop the Labels".
People with disabilities should be looked at by their abilities not what they're incapable of doing. There needs to be a stop with degradation segregation stereotypes and no one deserves to be pitied.
Many people with disabilities have more drive, initiative, and motivation more than most "normal" lazy people do without a disability.

YAWN! After a brain injury you get a little sleepy. I know I slept alot. There were days when I had no clue what day it was. My sleeping patterns changed as the healing process began. Many times I stayed awake and in silence.
Let's talk about getting some sleep. And if you do not sleep what do you do?

Ann Boriskie, a TBI survivor of more than 17-years says, “Get involved. Volunteer.” “By helping others with a brain injury, you truly help yourself in so many ways.” Ann is the Brain Injury Peer Visitor Association Director and her motto is “YOU CAN!”
Every TBI survivor and caregiver has encountered a fork in the road that has diverted his or her life-plan. A car accident, a fall from the roof, doing one more chin-up, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College plans, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slip from reality as dreams turn to struggle. These unexpected life-happenings that divert one from his or her chosen path in life can be devastating. But as Yogi Berra once said, "If you come to a fork in the road, take it." Life is all about choices!

You do not have to be brain injured to be involved in the brain injury community. What you will learn about is how we are each other’s family in many circumstances. Because brain injuries don't just involve a traumatic brain injury, a stroke, a person who is mentally handicapped, or someone seen with a walker; there are hundreds of us who are with master’s degrees, major accomplishments, happy families, children, marriages, and careers who are brilliant and well mannered.
So many in the public don’t understand who we are. They don't understand this could be them in a moment’s notice as life events occur at any given time. Survivors and caregivers unite and we build a family of our own! We talk about what we have become and how well we stand together!
What we can do and will do is educate the public! We show individuals life is way too short and need to enjoy every second we have while we are here ALIVE! We do not let people whole us down! We will not allow anyone to talk down to us. We are strong and we are proud we have accomplished so much.
Join us together for a positive approach in life! Whining and complaining about how bad your life is, is just a waste of valuable time!
We Talk About What We Have Become and How Well We Stand Together!
Positive motivation has an impact on everyone involved with family members, caregivers and those involved with neurological impairments.
Recovery processes have an undoubtable negative impact on invidividuals without a positive influence involved.
A positive perception assists everyone through coping strategies including the initial impact on the news, the struggles involved, and the accomplishments made.
Families and caregivers need to have somewhere to go to when they have their struggles like giving up their lives, paying bills, making time for another life, and the responbilities which ensue.
Then most importantly is teamwork! ANYONE INVOLVED NEEDS TO LISTEN, LEARN, AND COMMUNICATE!
This is why we (ASBISG.org) have conference calls and meetings for caregivers. All of the attention isnt focused on just the survivors lives. Caregivers and family members understanding, communication, love and affection have an enormous affect on the brain injured. We are all a product of our environment. The community needs to help one another and help each other through the good times and bad.
Although my birthday is actually tomorrow 12/19, I would like to have a celebration of what we have together in the brain injury community as a birthday present.
I hope you all find a positive influence in the expereinces we share on or conference calls, our radio shows, and our chats on the phone to help one another in the brain injury community.
We could not have accomplished all we have done if it wasn't for all of you with us.
This next year I would like more people to get involved in teamwork sharing/networking the work we do to help more people nationwide and globally. We plan to have a global resource center location, also set up locations in each state to communicate together for people to get education and support services and building to help all of those in need for their children, families, and friends to understand brain injury and neurological impairments of all kinds.
Set-Backs of Brain Injury
Brain injury is a rollercoaster in lifes roads, ups and downs and downs. Each set back can have a huge effect on our emotions our stability and the very essence of who we are. It can question the very fiber of who we are.
There does not seem to be an easy road just a road with lots of challenges that we must travel. But travel we must and we do not have a choice in the matter. But we are faced with the choice to do or not to do.
And I think that really only leaves us with the choice to do, not to do is not a good choice so on ward we go through this rollercoaster called life. It is easier together so how to find those willing riders in the journey called life
Let us travel this road together and find the success wek need to make our lives the best possible
