  • EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) as a Therapy for Parkinson's Disease

    in Work

    Bernadette Hunter demonstrates how EFT is done as she does a session with Monica during this radio program. Monica has the symptoms of Parkinson's Disease. For a follow-up report on the outcomes of Monica's session with Bernadette, read the posting on the Parkinsons Recovery Blog of Monica's feedback which I received several days later.


    This program complements one of the videos I have included in the free Jump Start to Recovery Crash Course on EFT. In the crash course video, I demonstrate EFT using myself as a subject. This program presents a rich overview of EFT and why it should be taken as a serious therapy for persons who currently experience symptoms of Parkinson's disease.

    We Love Pet Therapy-Emotional Support & Service Animals

    in Pets

    About Pet Therapy


    A hand reaches out, a wagging tail approaches, and an elderly face breaks into a smile. It's a scene that's increasingly common in the Helena Valley, thanks to volunteers from the Helena Chapter of Intermountain Therapy Animals. Activity directors and health care professionals report that visiting pets reach nursing home residents, hospital patients, retirement home residents and adult day care participants in ways that other therapeutic activities can't.


    The contact may be brief, but it brightens the entire day or week, especially for those who have had pets in the past. In some cases, an animal's visit is transforming. Shy, withdrawn, or depressed people find themselves in animated conversation, angry people relax, and those with memory lapses share detailed recollections of pets they lived with years before. Visiting pets have reached autistic children, stroke victims, Alzheimer's patients, and other "unreachables." Even when nothing dramatic happens, pet visits are important changes of pace for facility residents, bringing excitement, affection, comfort, physical contact and joy.


    In addition, to providing companionship (called Animal Assisted Activity), visiting pets sometimes participate in a facility's therapy program. In Animal Assisted Therapy, a dog might stand while a patient brushes him order to exercise specific arm muscles, or a cat might visit a depressed patient to encourage conversation, or someone in speech therapy might give commands to a dog that does tricks or retrieves objects. Anyone who loves animals is likely to work harder and feel more motivated when one is part of the therapy team.

  • Urban Therapy with Sun #146 A Long, Carzy Summer.

    in Lifestyle

    We see a lot of strange things in the summertime. You never know what you're gonna get on a daily basis while you're driving, riding public transportation, walking, sitting on your porch or steps, shopping, looking out of your window or whatever. The summertime does crazy things to people. It' makes some people act out. When you think about it, you've probably seen the wildest things ever during the warm weather months. So, what have you seen this year? How about last year?
    This is a call in show.
    You are encouraged to share anything crazy that you've seen this summer. Nothing is too wild, ratchet, ghetto, unbelievable, ridiculous or just plain wrong.
    I know that personally, I don't have to leave my street. I have pictures! They give me a show every single day! Wait until I share my stories. Share yours as well and let's have some fun on this show.
    There may be drugs involved. In fact I know there will be.
