    Radio Show: How Your Gut May Guide the Workings of Your Brain

    in Health

    In this show you’ll learn:



    How bacteria in your digestive system may influence your moods, behavior, and feelings
    The real truth about how the way you digest your food influences your brain
    How your stomach acid affects the chemical communication system in your brain


    Background:


    If you’ve ever “gone with your gut” to make a decision or felt “butterflies in your stomach” when nervous, you’re likely getting signals from an unexpected source: your second brain.  Hidden in the walls of the digestive system, this “brain in your gut” is revolutionizing medicine’s understanding of the links between digestion, mood, health, and even the way you think.


    Scientists call this little brain the enteric nervous system (ENS). And it’s not so little. The ENS is two thin layers of more than 100 million nerve cells lining your gastrointestinal tract from esophagus to rectum.


    Dr. Ritamarie is the founder of the Institute of Nutritional Endocrinology, and has over 23 years of clinical experience as a functional medicine practitioner and clinical nutritionist

    Brain Injury Communication with Host Michael Idell/Paying the Bills

    in Education

    Brain Injury Radio Network does not only apply to survivors of brain injuries. Caregivers, family members, loved ones, medical professionals, advocates who want to make changes happen for survivors and the generally public who want to learn how to help others in need.


    Who decides when outpatient care is no longer needed, how an individual can not get any better, or when limitations run out? Many insurance companies cut off care for outpatient care after a limited amount of time. 


    There are many struggles that occur for anyone involved in the financial side of occurance after a brain injury. Unless there is a substantial lawsuit which takes place after, the largest battle aside from the recovery process is how are needs going to be met. For caregivers, when your life is put on hold to now cover the expenses for someone else aside from trying to take care of yourself or children in a family, now you may have an adult who can not manage these tasks on their own any longer. Unfortunately, home health aides are not in any position to take care of these personal needs. Who represents the injured?


    For a survivor, are handling financial tasks too much? Has your cognitive development had an impact on stress, money, relationships they can now trust in their lives and how things will be taken care of? What happens if an individual hasn't been so blessed to finally get approved for SSDI? Who represents the survivors after family has given up their relationships with the survivors? When disability insurance only covers 80% of medical costs (if any) how does a disabled individual know how to get supplemental insurance? How much does the brain injury community know where to go and who to talk to in each state or even locally in their area?

    "Stung, Warped & Fried" 

    We hope you will call in and share your experiences of to much, times where you felt mentally or emotionally in a freefall. we get it. As well we realize with management we can somewhat have control over these freefalls.

  • Neurofibromatosis & Brain Impact on Recovery Now with Kim Justus

    in Health

    Cassey Blumenthal has Neurofibromatosis Type 1 as well as dyslexia which is common with NF. She was diagnosed at age 7 and currently there is no cure for neurofibromatosis. 


    Neurofibromatosis is a genetic disorder that disturbs cell growth in the nervous system, causing tumors to form on nerve tissue. These tumors may develop anywhere in your nervous system, including in your brain, spinal cord and nerves. Neurofibromatosis is usually diagnosed in childhood or early adulthood. Dr Frederick Covington will join us to discuss therapies and assistive technology that he is creating. www.askdrcovington.com


    The tumors are usually (benign), but in some cases these tumors become cancerous. Effects of neurofibromatosis can range from hearing loss, learning impairment, and heart and blood vessel (cardiovascular) complications to severe disability due to nerve compression by tumors, loss of vision and severe pain. Learn more about this disease that inflicts about 1 in 3000 people.


    This show is a gathering place for anyone seeking recovery from the challenges of life on life's terms. We discuss useful tools that have helped us lighten the load, of our journey through recovery. This is a "we" recovery program, because it is in the "we," that we find the new "me."


    We focus on the four A's of Recovery: Awareness, Acceptance, Action and Adaptation. This is a place for survivor's striving to become thrivers.


    The front half of show is a featured guest. to join us in the discussion. The second part of the show is Open Mic and some great Indy Music, sure to inspire!

    LYNETTE LOUISE AKA THE BRAIN BROAD WORKS MIRACLES WITH AUTISTIC CHILDREN

    in Culture

    ENVISION THIS: Helping children to heal through love, play, neurofeedback, comedy, and music


    Lynette Louise is an expert in Autism, and on how to incorporate neurofeedback, combined with play, as the main therapy approach for the autistic child.  She holds two board certifications in Neurofeedback and is working on her PhD in Clinical Psychophysiology. Most notably though, she is a mom extraordinaire! Without question her greatest pride is having raised eight children, (six adopted, five disabled, four on the autism spectrum).  At present, only one of her sons retains his label and remains dependent. 


    Lynette’s one-woman musical comedy show CRAZY TO SANE teaches with laughter, candor and toe tapping tunes including Unfinished and Brainiac. The show—and the CD-- are a collage of her life as the daughter of abuse, the mother of autism, and a student turned teacher of mental health. With artistic splendor she weaves the lessons of a lifetime, comedy, and brain science into this entertaining and emotional show. Besides healing and performing, she is a public speaker,hosts a radio show, and produces documentaries for the disabled, including Fix it in Five and Living with Lynette.


    This extraordinarily multi-talented woman says, “Really, my vision in life was always to save children and to change the world through creative arts because it gets straight to people’s emotions. I never knew I’d be doing documentaries, but I guess I also never knew I’d adopt so many children either.”
