    Strong, Powerful AND Feminine

    in Women

    I am WOman, hear me ROAR! Does a woman need to roar to get what she wants, to get her needs met, to have her way, and get her point across? Or can a woman whisper, speak softly, be vulnerable, soft, receptive, yielding, nurturing and kind and get every single desire of her heart met? That is, can a woman be Strong, Powerful AND Feminine?  


    Some say women have lost sight of what it means to be a woman. They say women have morphed into men...in dresses, that too many women have grown hard, tough, unyielding, i.e., masculine. Today's woman, so they say, knows how to bring home the bacon...but she has forgotten how to fry it up in a pan and make her man feel like a man.


    What do you think? Have you lost sight of your femininity? Would you like to embrace your kinder, gentler, softer, sensual side?  


    Together, let's explore what it means to be a woman today, and how we might re-awaken the Divine Feminine and use her powers for good.

  • Travel insurance for people with medical issues

    in Health

    Joyce and Robin speak with Dr. Patty Calvert, an agent with Travel Experts of Memphis, Tennessee, about travel insurance.


    Robin raised the question because in her dealings with people who have kidney cancer, there were too many stories of illness during travel and being let down by the travel insurance they thought they had had for emergencies.


    Patty designs adventure travel for her clients, and has experience in making sure that in case of emergencies abroad, there will be an appropriate backup system in place.


    For more information on Patty and her practice, see http://www.travel-xperts.com/Patty-Calvert/

  • Reducing Infant Mortality in the United States

    in Health

    DR. FORD HAS A CONFLICT.  WE ARE WORKING TO REBOOK THIS FOR NEXT WEEK.  SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE. - JOYCE AND ROBIN


    What can we do to lower the incidence of infant deaths? Joyce and Robin speak with Dr. Robert Ford, a retired obstetrician/gynecologist (OB/GYN) from West Memphis, Arkansas, now living in Memphis, Tennessee. Dr. Ford shares his insights into this problem, which is highest in the Southern states.


    Unfortunately, about 24,000 infants died in the United States in 2011. The loss of a baby remains a sad reality for many families and takes a serious toll on the health and well-being of families, as well as the nation.


    The death of a baby before his or her first birthday is called infant mortality. The infant mortality rate is an estimate of the number of infant deaths for every 1,000 live births. This rate is often used as an indicator to measure the health and well-being of a nation, because factors affecting the health of entire populations can also impact the mortality rate of infants. There are obvious differences in infant mortality by age, race, and ethnicity; for instance, the mortality rate for non-Hispanic black infants is more than twice that of non-Hispanic white infants.


    What are the Causes?


    Fortunately, most newborns grow and thrive. However, for every 1,000 babies that are born, six die during their first year.1 Most of these babies die because they are—



    Born with a serious birth defect.
    Born too small and too early (i.e., preterm birth; birth before 37 weeks gestation).
    Victims of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
    Affected by maternal complications of pregnancy.
    Victims of injuries (e.g., suffocation).


    These top five leading causes of infant mortality together account for 58% of all infant deaths in the United States in 2011.

    Aging at Home, or Accommodating our Limitations

    in Health

    Robert Kaplan of "OK 2 Age at Home" speaks with Robin and Joyce about modifications that can be made to one's home to make it safer for yourself, for an aging parent, or for anyone with a disability.


    Our abilities change as we get older.  Sometimes it is difficult to accept that our capabilities have changed, and to accept and face the "new normal."  The most important thing it to avoid falling.  The older we are, the more serious an injury a fall can create -- falling out of bed, falling on the steps, or in the bathroom.  There are a number of modifications that can be made -- in ways that can enhance the value of the home -- that can make it safer and more realistic to remain at home.


    We need first to consider: is this the place where I want to be?  Is it accessible to grocery store and services? to social activities? or would it in fact be better to move?


    If it's the right place to be, then is it possible to live on one floor? or to add a stair lift?  Is it safe to get into the home? Should we add railings or a ramp?


    Is the bathroom safe?  Would it be wise to add grab bars, a shower seat, or a bathtub seat where you can sit first and swing your legs into the tub?  Is the floor too slippery?


    We discuss these issues and more on the Powerful Patient
