    Chinese Medicine VS Our Traditional Model on Recovery Now With Kim Justus

    in Health

    Ruth Lycke is a medically trained Nurse, Paramedic, Clinic Manager, Surgical Specialist, and Business Executive with over 34 years of experience. One of her areas of uniqueness is in her surviving a Pontine brain bleed in 2001 and becoming the first American stroke survivor to seek and receive treatment utilizing Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in 2004. That event shaped her life and she spent the next 7 years devoted to bringing stroke survivors to China for treatment, where she now resides and has a thriving Chinese business. It is with this same drive and determination that she has taken on building the first ever Brain Industry Park.  www.brainindustrypark.com


    This show is a gathering place for anyone seeking recovery from the challenges of life on life's terms. I introduce topics, and survivor's share their experience, strength and hope. We discuss useful tools that have helped us lighten the load, of our journey through recovery.


    More will be revealed! Tune in, stop in and call in. 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.  :)


    Some nights we will have a featured guest, and others we will introduce a topic of recovery, encouraging callers to join us in the discussion. The second part of the show is Open Mic and some great Indy Music, sure to inspire!
