    Is there any way to cut the costs of chemo?
    Are there any foods or supplements to avoid during chemo? If so, why?
    What's your take on holistic alternatives to chemotherapy?

    Close-Up Talk Radio spotlights Dr. Corinna Murray of Veterinary Care Navigation

    in Pets

    Johns Creek, GA – Our pets possess a strong willingness and desire to understand our needs and anticipate them. As a result, there is so much more the relationship with our pets can bring into our lives in terms of our personal development and sense of well being. When we foster a deeper bond with our pets, we open up a whole new dimension of emotional health and wellness, as well as create the opportunity for getting the behaviors that we want from our pets and from ourselves.


    Dr. Corinna Murray is a Certified Professional Life and Leadership Coach and the founder of Veterinary Care Navigation and EnHABiT (Engaging the Human Animal Bond in Tandem). Dr. Murray brings 25 years of veterinary experience to her unique, groundbreaking coaching services dedicated to enhancing the quality of the bonds between pets and their owners.


    “I’ve always been very connected with animals,” says Dr. Murray. “I practiced traditional veterinary medicine, but what I found most fulfilling was my ability to connect with people facing challenging decisions. I was able to listen to them and help them come to the right decision for them.”


    With Veterinary Care Navigation, Dr. Murray helps clients manage the difficult emotional decisions related to their pets. With EnHABiT, Dr. Murray teaches her clients how to use the bond with their pets to better manage their stress and accelerate their personal development while getting the behaviors and emotional satisfaction that they want from both themselves and their pets.


    “People are amazed to learn that the behaviors that they want to change in their pets really starts with themselves," says Dr. Murray. "When you can better manage your energies, you will see the behavioral change in your pet and that change will spark change in you. Once you see it, you can’t deny it."

    Learn How To Make Your Own Pet Food

    in Pets

    Most pet parents are opting to make their own pet food because of the issues with pet food recalls and incorporation of euthanized animals in the pet foods available on the market. However, making your own pet food is not that easy. There are certain foods you cannot feed your pets and making your own food doesn't always guarantee that your pet will eat it. In addition, meals must be nutritionally balanced which is often a huge problem for many pet parents, especially if they are not given proper guidance. Susan Thixton, Founder of TruthAboutPetFood.com, a world renowned authority on pet food has created a cookbook along with Dr. Cathy Alinovi, Doctor of Veterinary Medicine.

    We Love Pet Therapy-Emotional Support & Service Animals

    in Pets

    About Pet Therapy


    A hand reaches out, a wagging tail approaches, and an elderly face breaks into a smile. It's a scene that's increasingly common in the Helena Valley, thanks to volunteers from the Helena Chapter of Intermountain Therapy Animals. Activity directors and health care professionals report that visiting pets reach nursing home residents, hospital patients, retirement home residents and adult day care participants in ways that other therapeutic activities can't.


    The contact may be brief, but it brightens the entire day or week, especially for those who have had pets in the past. In some cases, an animal's visit is transforming. Shy, withdrawn, or depressed people find themselves in animated conversation, angry people relax, and those with memory lapses share detailed recollections of pets they lived with years before. Visiting pets have reached autistic children, stroke victims, Alzheimer's patients, and other "unreachables." Even when nothing dramatic happens, pet visits are important changes of pace for facility residents, bringing excitement, affection, comfort, physical contact and joy.


    In addition, to providing companionship (called Animal Assisted Activity), visiting pets sometimes participate in a facility's therapy program. In Animal Assisted Therapy, a dog might stand while a patient brushes him order to exercise specific arm muscles, or a cat might visit a depressed patient to encourage conversation, or someone in speech therapy might give commands to a dog that does tricks or retrieves objects. Anyone who loves animals is likely to work harder and feel more motivated when one is part of the therapy team.

    Conversations with Counselor Mandy: Inspired Stories of HOPE! with Linda Bender

    in Psychology

    Mandy Eppley will be interviewing passionate animal advocate, educator and author, Dr. Linda Bender. You can look forward to hearing many amazing stories of Linda's service in pursuit of justice for the animal kingdom that are inspiring and world-changing.


    Dr. Linda Bender’s love of the natural world began in her childhood backyard. Her innate rapport with animals inspired her to earn a doctorate in veterinary medicine.


    During the 14 years she spent living in England, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East, Linda’s veterinary work included the rescue, rehabilitation, and protection of wildlife, often in remote areas. Working with zoos in Southeast Asia, she treated animals rescued from the wildlife trafficking trade and helped reintroduce them back into their natural habitats.  Working in the field with rarely encountered wildlife, she helped to develop treatment protocols.


    In both Asia and Africa she worked with local communities promoting anti-poaching initiatives and educational programs. Sharing stories of her deep connection to animals helped school children understand, respect and protect both wildlife and domestic animals.


    Her interest in the healing arts led her to open the Mind the Gap Wellness Center in Cincinnati and she also started one of the first pet therapy programs through the Ohio Mental Health Association. She is also co-founder of the nonprofit organization, From The Heart, whose proceeds are funneled to various animal charities that directly benefit animals and their habitats.


    Last summer Linda released her first book, Animal Wisdom: Learning from the Spiritual Lives of Animals (North Atlantic) This book illuminates the undeniable ability for animals to restore our ecological, emotional and spiritual balance. Visit her websit, LindaBend

    How Animals Help Our Wounded Warriors - Dan Spangler

    in Self Help

    Animal companions play an important role in the stabilization and emotional well-being of our
    returning veterans.


    “I don’t know where I would be without the companionship that my dog Spanky gave me when I
    came home from Iraq,” says Dan Spangler, who served as a sergeant in the Marine Corps.
    “Spanky saved me.”


    Dan adopted Spanky in 2003 when he returned home from deployment. Dan needed months of
    medical treatment for an injury he sustained jumping from a truck when gunfire broke out at a
    checkpoint. Looking back, he realizes what an important role Spanky played in both his physical
    and emotional recovery.


    Now Dan and Spanky are setting out on a more than 6,000 mile cross country trek from Camp
    Lejeune, NC to Camp Pendleton, CA to raise awareness and funds for “Operation: Keep Your
    Spanky,” a new program that provides resources, in-kind assistance and low-cost veterinary care
    for military families and veteran pet owners during times of financial crisis.


    “I want all veterans to have a Spanky, but it’s a sad fact that military veterans often experience
    financial difficulties where they face the heartbreaking choice of giving up their pets,” says Dan.
    Dan says that keeping pets in their homes not only benefits the veteran owners, but it benefits
    area shelters and rescue organizations who otherwise might end up with the pet.
