    Healthy Matters: The Radio show-Cancer, causes and Cures

    in Health

    It's Breast Cancer Awareness month. Nothing is more fitting than, a cancer talk. Cancer cells live inside of each and every one of us but, what sets them into action? Cancer is a trillion dollar a year industry. Can some cancers be averted? Are there less caustic treatments than 'CPR' (Cut, Poison, Radiate)? Annually, charities collect into the millions for cancer research yet seem no closer to a cure. Is there something that they're overlooking? Are there natural remedies that someone doesn't want us to know about and is there a conspiracy to keep this information from you? What are the most prevalent types of cancers? If you get cancer, what next?  What feeds cancer and, how can you increase chances of overcoming it if you get it? These are just a few questions that we'll be discussing in this weeks installment of Healthy Matters: The Radio Show.
    Join myself, Dennis Jefferson and my co-hosts, 'The ever knowledgeable' Verna Hair-Brown and the lovely Dana Pitts as we discuss this and other issues. 
    Here at Healthy Matters, we discuss the issues that affect your lives. Join us each week at 8:00 central time and bring a friend to start your week with... A Healthy Matter




    in Lifestyle

    I'm Chelsea Szabo, and I battled death three times before reaching the age of twenty. I survived two different types of cancer (Melanoma and Hodgkin's lymphoma) and a serious automobile accident.

    These experiences gave me a sense of urgency to embrace life to the fullest, and provided the personal motto:  Keep going until you get what you want, and then repeat.

    And that's just what I did after graduating with a B.S. in Marketing from West Chester University of Pennsylvania—I went after what I thought I wanted. I moved to Los Angeles and quickly jumped into the local advertising scene and immersed myself in a variety of professional and philanthropic opportunities. 

    So, I left what was familiar to find what was authentic. I finally found it when I became a Certified Professional Coach. The one thing that stayed consistent during this transition was my voice. In order to get what I wanted, I had to voice it again, and again, and again, even when it sounded crazy to others.  

    That's the root of my private coaching practice, Verbal Courage. As a Coach, I blend my passion for helping others with the strong belief that change can't happen without a confident voice. I now wake up completely fulfilled as my days are dedicated to guiding others to speak with Verbal Courage. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing them learn to trust their intuition, and successfully initiate even the most difficult conversations to keep them on track to get what they truly want.

    Amazing Social Media Campaign or Creepy Spam?

    Pharmaguy interviews Jonathan Richman, founder of Dose and Expound. You might remember Jonathan as the creator of the blog Dose of Digital, which provided insights on the use of digital technology in healthcare marketing. We discuss the Melanoma Likes Me social media campaign, which won a Silver Award at the 2015 Lions Health Festival. Jonathan called this the "best healthcare social media campaign [he's] ever seen." Pharmaguy called it the "creepiest healthcare social media campaign [he's] ever seen." Can't we all just get along?
