    The 180 Degree Wellness Solution With Tara Gesling

    in Health

    Tara Gesling visits Perfectly Healthy And Toned Radio (PhatMan Radio) to discuss her book the 180 Degree Wellness Revolution.


    At just 28 years young, Tara was disabled. Diagnosed with a myriad of conditions including late stage Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, Chronic Pain Syndrome, Autoimmune Thyroid Disease, Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue left her overwhelmed with no hope for healing. The medical system prescribed surrendering to a life riddled with limitations and pills. Devastated, she never imagined this would be the beginning of an incredible journey from despair to triumph. It was from her lowest point of wheelchair dependence that Tara's personal 180 Degree Wellness Revolution was inspired. Her self-guided process of reversing damage and rebuilding health is restoring her to function and vitality.


    She is an example of the healing that is possible when a simple, functional approach acknowledging bio-individuality is implemented. In this book, Tara shares her discoveries, research and experiences that have contributed to her return to a joyful and fulfilling life. The 180 Degree Wellness Revolution can help you learn to listen to your symptoms, begin uncovering the root causes of chronic conditions in your life and propel you to find your own healing solutions.

    Never Give Up! A Caregiver's PTSD Success Story. Tonya & Rick Shaw USMC

    in Caregiving

    Rick spent 8 ½ years in the Marine Corps, however, he was medically separated in June 2011. During his time on active duty, he completed 2 combat tours to Iraq, was a helicopter mechanic, aerial gunner, and instructor. He suffered silently with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) for just over 7 years and was just about as close as one could be to ending their life before his amazing wife was somehow able to pull him out of the darkest of places.


    Join Dave, The Caregiver's Caregiver as he interviews Rick & Tonya Shaw, Wednesday, 4/22/15 at noon, PDT). Tonya acted as a caregiver to her PTSD husband for years, trying to save her family, and her marriage that was destined for divorce. However, her goal was not going to be an easy one..


    Rick began self-medicating with alcohol mixed with prescribed medication just to get a couple hours of sleep at night. However, the onset of sleepwalking and nightmares became a nightly occurrence. Shortly after, he began to wake up with flashbacks and was convinced that their house was under attack. He then began waking up, pacing in his home with a pistol. His wife would follow him around to make sure he did not hurt anyone. Rick began isolating himself, and his behavior now adversely affected his job.


    Eventually, Tonya was able to get Rick to open up publicly about how PTSD had not only affected him, but also his wife and everyone around him. The suicide rate for veterans is staggering and almost impossible to fathom. In fact, veterans make up 20% of the suicides in the United States, but only make up 10% of the population. In whole numbers, last year, just under 40,000 people committed suicide in the U.S. Of that, just over 8,000 were veterans.


    Rick and Tonya have now devoted their lives to PTSD awareness of this misunderstood disorder. Please share this link with anyone who is suffering with PTSD. This is a "must see" show!

    Critical Discourse - "Fasting is PRESCRIBED ..."

    in Health

    "Fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may attain taqwaa (reverence and awe of your Lord)." (Holy Qur'an 2:183)


    “Whenever you fast, do not look dismal, like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces so as to show others that they are fasting” (Matthew 6:16).


    We want to this Saturday, on Critical Discourse, discuss and enact, the process of fasting.


    Fasting means many things to many people. For Muslims, it is a pillar of Al-Islam, especially during the month of Ramadan. We read in the Bible, where Jesus (Peace by Upon Him) fasted for 40 days.


    However one sees it, fasting provides that opportunity for the abstain from usual habits, and in the process, enter into a more reflective and humbled mood. It provides an opportunity to cleans oneself, spiritually, physically and morally, as we hopefully become more mindful of our environment, and get a chance to "recharge" of sorts.


    It the position of thie writer, that from whatever religion, philosophy or ideology one comes from, fasting is of great benefit, and should be a regular practice. We can get into the finer details, but for sure, on Critical Discourse, we want to spread the idea of our selecting one day a week, to fast / abstain.


    This writer is certain, that particularly amongst our people, such a practice and discipline will yield positive and transformative results, in ways we could never imagine, so we ask that not only do you listen in, but share with Critical Discourse, your thoughts, ideas and past fasting experience, and how this proposal could be of great help to us.
