    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

  • 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!

    Food for Thought: Nutrition for your Brain

    in Lifestyle

    Over the past few weeks we have focused our attention to our heart. On today's broadcast we focus our attention to our mind - the captain of our central nervous system. We will take a look at how nutrition is linked everything from our memory to our emotional health.


    Also on today's broadcast we will discuss our perceptions of food. Did you know that more Christians are overweight, even obese, than the general public? What kind of testimony is that? How does that honor God?


    Romans 12:1 and 2 tells us that we are to "present our bodies a living sacrifice" and that we are to be "transformed by the renewing of our minds." Is this just about the spiritual? No, God is concerned about every aspect of our lives.


    There are certain nutrients that our brain needs in order to be renewed, revived, and healthy.

  • "Another Fork in the Road" Panel - "Learning Accommodations After Brain Injury"

    in Education

    For many survivors damage to the brain gets in the way of cognitive learning and adaptations must be made. Accommodations come in many and varied forms. This evening two young women, who both sustained a brain injury, Melissa Cronin and Juliet Madsen, are joining me on a panel to discuss “Learning Accommodations After Brain Injury.”


    Every TBI survivor and caregiver has encountered a fork in the road that has diverted his or her life-plan. A car accident, a fall from the roof, doing one more chin-up, an IED blast, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slips from reality as dreams turn to struggle. These unexpected life-happenings that divert one from his or her chosen path in life can be devastating.


    But as Yogi Berra once said, “If you come to a fork in the road, take it.” Life is all about choices!
