"Patients want to be considered whole human beings in the context of their world," Dr. Weizer explains. Both doctors and patients alike are bonding with the philosophy of integrative medicine and its whole-person approach - between the patient and doctor, where the goal is to treat the mind, body, and spirit, all at the same time. Join Dr. Weizer for this incredbly interesting discussion.
How does integrative medicine work? One of Dr. Ken Weizer's patients was diagnosed with melanoma cancer and went into decline. She began chemo, lost weight, her hair was gone, and she was emotionally and physically drained. But how is she doing now? Dr. Ken gives us a picture of how integrative medicine assisted her.

Today we shall discuss how anyone can organize a "legal studies group". This can be done on a family level, neighborhood level, community level, or faith based level.
Vincent Richardson, Sr. will discuss how anyone can get access to affordable legal services via Legal Sheild and he will also discuss how you can start your own "legal services marketing" business.
As usual on "It's My House Radio", please get your pen and paper out so that you can take notes and then convert those notes into action.
Join Kelly as she interviews artist and scientist Fariba Bogzaran! Fariba Bogzaran, PhD artist/scientist has been teaching dream studies internationally for thirty years. In 1996, she founded the first dream studies program in a graduate Department (Consciousness Studies) at John F. Kennedy University.
Brooklyn, NY – Psychiatry, like most forms of conventional medicine, is often focused on the treatment of symptoms and disease. In contrast, nursing has traditionally been oriented towards healing the whole person. Indeed, nursing was the original healing profession.
Rhoda Berger is a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner and the founder of Integrative Psych NP. As an integrative practitioner, Rhoda’s approach to healing begins by getting to know her clients as complex individuals with an innate ability to heal. This holistic approach requires an understanding of the relationship between the physical, cognitive and emotional aspects of the person.
“Medical professionals, including psychiatrists, tend to take a mechanistic approach to healing people: this is what I’m treating and nothing else,” says Berger. “I really believe when nurses meet people, we meet them in a different way than doctors. I’m not only addressing the specific thing they came for. I’m seeing the whole person.”
Berger says that when she evaluates her clients’ mental health issues, she’s not only evaluating on the basis of how, for example, their depression may be affected by neurotransmitters, but also how they’re living their lives, what they do for fun, how they sleep, what their relationships are like, what their belief system is. Sometimes changing their diet or learning how to use their breath for healing can accelerate the process.
“I feel nourished by being present for other people so I’m proud when I see them blossoming. I find it enlivening,” says Berger. “Everyone is born wanting to seek happiness, to become the version of you that you were meant to be. We have to integrate our adaptive selves with our authentic selves. It is a process of remembering who we are.”

GENDER STUDIES, WOMEN’S STUDIES—DO WE REALLY STILL NEED THEM?
You remember women’s studies – started around the time young women were supposedly burning their bras. If you’re a supporter of the programs, they are a place to learn the history of feminism, equality, and women’s accomplishments in the world. If you aren’t a supporter, those programs are for women with short hair and Birkenstocks to learn how to resent men. Fortunately, both those stereotypes are off the mark. So – what is women’s studies and how are such programs relevant today?
We’ll get those answers and more as Yi-Chun Tricia Lin, Director and Professor of the Women’s Studies Program at Southern Connecticut State University, joins us for Saturday’s show. Growing up in Taiwan, Tricia was expected to follow a life as previous generations of women had- obedient and submissive to patriarchy. That didn’t work for her, and instead she went to graduate school and became a teacher focusing on social justice issues, including gender, racial, and socio-economic issues. She also is very active in leadership of a number of academic and political organizations, including Veteran Feminists of America, New Haven League of Women Voters, and the National Women’s Studies Association. Tricia also contributed to several publications including a special issue on transnational Indigenous feminism with Lectora (University of Barcelona), forthcoming in 2016. If anyone knows the current status of women’s studies, it is Tricia.
