    The Benefit of Support Groups with EFEPA Members

    in Culture

    The emotional impact of a disability and its effect on quality of life are important to consider for both the individual and caregivers, and can lead to depression and anxiety. Many types of support groups that are free and acessible are available to provide information, education and mutual peer support. Members of Epilepsy Foundation of Eastern Pennsylvania (EFEPA) support groups join us to talk about how their lives have been positively impacted by their participation as individuals with epilepsy and caregivers. 


    PA Independent Living Radio Show is brought to you Fridays at 12:00 pm Eastern, by The Arc of Luzerne County. Please consider a donation in support of our work to help improve the quality of life for people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities and their families.

    Support Groups Matter - Survivors Matter - with Craig Sicilia

    in Radio

    Brain Injury Support groups save lives, build communities and give meaning to a life affected by brain injury
    Many who think about groups, think it may just be coffee and a donut but they are so much more than that, groups for many are the only connection to society, any connection to any other person that is not a medical profession or pharmacist dish out medicines.  
    Groups get people into the community if their facilitated right, doing healthy activities such as yoga, meditation and nutrition and exercise.   They can help survivors and their families find a purpose that has meaning.  Even after years of being stuck in hopeless mode.  It saves lives, for many survivors who first discover others who have the same challenges, it can be the first glimpse of hope.  Hope that life is not only about loss and pain.  Hope that life can have meaning.  No other services available to those living with a brain injury can inspire hope like peer support.
    We are doing this episode to share with any and all who ever want to limit support groups, we need people to understand the power in Peer support groups, the power to rebuild life, and dreams..

    FDN Support Talk Radio

    in Health

    Intro: Reed discussing the FDN philosophy/paradigm and what sets us apart from other


    traditional methods.


    4:30 Talk about upcomoing new FDN material and video tutorials


    6:15 – 14:30  Reed continues to discuss trouble-shooting & doubling down on DRESS; 


    Brandon announces graduates


    15:00 – Question: How do you go about weaning off PPI’s with supplements to increase stomach acid? 


    (already ruled out Hpylori). 


    Reed: Reed discusses weaning clients off of PPIs and why stomach acid is so important to our health and 


    vitality. 


    29:00 – Live Question: Can Reed speak to hyper-parathyroidism 


    Reed: discusses parathyroid function and its role on calcium in the blood/bones.  Speaks to how the 


    process of FDN reduces metabolic chaos regardless of the  client’s “diagnosis”. 


    47:30 – Question: I have a client with a total cortisol of 9.5 for the whole day. I mentioned that he might want to 


    get tested for Addison’s since that was what the FDN program suggests. He doesn’t seem to have the other typical symptoms of Addison’s other than the low cortisol. Reed shares that he has seen Addison’s maybe twice in the last 15 years – it is very rare. 


    54:30 – Question from caller. How does the cyclical drop of progesterone before menses set off the 


    inflammatory cascade that triggers migraines.  


    Reed: Does it matter? The solution is to balance the contributors to MC and work non-specifically w/ FDN protocols.

    CHILD SUPPORT

    in Entertainment

    Let’s say that there is a mother who has a child by a man but they split. The woman has 1 more kid by another man and she splits with him as well. The first man pays his child support and more but the second man is a deadbeat. So the woman starts using the first father’s support check to cover her other child. So when the first father finds out that his child support is not all going to his child; would he be wrong to confront the mother and would the mother be wrong to defend her actions.
