    Undiagnosed: Medical Refugees

    in Health

    "Undiagnosed:Medical Refugees" is a soon to be released documentary about the journey to find answers to undiagnosed medical problems.  My guest is Katia Moritz, Ph.D, ABPP, who is the inspiration and driver of this amazing story.
    Katia's story is both heartbreaking and inspiring.    She has been searching for an answer to her sudden health decline after a simple and routine medical procedure.  Since that day, over three years ago, she has suffered from multiple debilitating symptoms resulting in hospitalizations, ongoing tests, and visits to many specialists throughout the country.  Throughout this time, she continues to try to maintain her energy to work, care for her family and keep her sights on finding answers.
    Katia will tell her story and how the idea for the documentary evolved.  She realized she was not alone.  There were many people, young and old, worldwide in similar circumstances.  And she needed to do something.
    Katia is the Clinical Director of the NeuroBehavioral Institute and a Psychoeducational Liaison for Academic-Options.  She is a licensed psychologist in the State of Florida.  Dr Moritz is Board Certified in Cognitive and Behavioral Therapy.

    A Child's Rare and Undiagnosed Illness: A Mother's Journey

    in Health

    For most of us, when we go to the doctor with symptoms, we are diagnosed and treated.  Imagine going to the doctor and being told there were no answers as to why the symptoms were occurring.  Then imagine, this is your child and all the specialists referred to have no answers.  What if you were told this was a rare illness and no one knew how to diagnosis it?  What would you do?
    This is the story Heather Long is going to talk about on this week's show.  One of Heather Long’s three children (Cal) passed away in 2006 at five years old to an undiagnosed disease. Heather was told that her son’s death was likely caused by a very rare metabolic disease, and she has since focused her energies on being an advocate for patients suffering from undiagnosed and rare diseases.
      In 2008, Heather co-founded a nonprofit organization, U.R. Our Hope., that assists individuals and families who are on the journey of finding a diagnosis or are navigating through the health care system after a rare diagnosis. In 2011, Heather co-authored H.R. 2671- The CAL Undiagnosed Diseases Research and Collaboration Network Act, which was proposed in the 112th Congress and is scheduled to be re-introduced during the current 113th session. And recently, Heather proudly joined the Global Genes Advocacy Leadership Group.

    Reader's Entertainment Radio Presents: Abbi Glines

    in Books

    Join me on Thursday, February 5th at 6pm EST. I'll chat with #1 New York Times, USA Today, and The Wall Street Journal bestselling author, Abbi Glines. Her Rosemary Beach, Sea Breeze, Vincent Boys series, and the Existence trilogy continue to excite young adult readers. Her upcoming novel, When I'm Gone: A Rosemary Beach Novel (The Rosemary Beach Series) will be released in April 2015. Readers will meet Mase Colt-Manning, a Texas heartthrob first introduced in Take a Chancewho comes to Rosemary Beach to stir things up! 

    Book Blurb:

    I had an urge to fix all her problems. Which was stupid. She was doing fine without me. But something about those big eyes…

    Mase Colt-Manning has always preferred his humble life as a Texas rancher to his birthright as the son of a legendary rock star. In fact, he rarely visits his father’s rarefied world in Rosemary Beach, especially if it means bunking at his vile half-sister Nan’s house—until one visit leads to a chance encounter with a young, gorgeous house maid who awakens him with her off-key but spirited imitation of a country music star…

    Reese Ellis finally has her freedom. After escaping a lifetime of abuse from her parents and classmates for an undiagnosed learning disorder, she seizes the opportunity to be a house maid to some of the richest families in Rosemary Beach. But her job is in jeopardy when she causes an accident at the home of her most important client, Nan Dillon. When a hot, half-naked stranger with a cowboy’s swagger comes to her rescue, she’s intrigued—then afraid once he shows his own interest. Reese has never met a trustworthy man in her life. Will Mase be any different?

    Adrenaline and Your Health

    in Health

    Dr Michael Platt has published a book, "Adrenaline Dominance: A Revolutionary Approach to Wellness".  He examines the role that adrenaline may plan in a number of conditions that are quite often misunderstood, including ADHD, Irritable bowel syndrome, PTSD and Autism.  He offers dietary ways to control the over-production of adrenaline.

    With a background in diseases that cause pheochromocytoma -- a tumor that causes over-production of adrenaline -- Joyce is eager to discuss with him how to differentiate between pheos and the kind of medically treatable adrenaline dominance that he discusses in his book.  Pheos are difficult to diagnose, and they notoriously do not respond to medical treatment.  Undiagnosed pheos can be life-threatening if they are not diagnosed and removed, especially during pregnancy.  Some pheos can even metastasize.  If you have a pheo, it is extremely important to diagnose and remove this dangerous tumor.  Pheos are also sometimes called paragangliomas, especially when they occur in the region of the chest or neck.  They can occur anywhere from the earlobe to the groin, on either side of the body, along the sympathetic nervous system.

    Please listen and participate in this discussion.  

    For more information on pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma, please see

    There are more than 20 tiny genetic flaws that can increase one's chance of having a pheo or para.  If you know that any of these conditions runs in your family, be sure to get tested for the presence of one of these tumors before embarking on Dr. Platt's treatments.  It will be easier to diagnose the pheo-para before this treatment.
