    Cell Danger Response!!! The Bridge Between Stress and Illness!

    in Health

    Wondering What Happened to Your Body?


    Wondering Why You are Still Sick?


    On Monday, November 9, 2015 at 8 PM (eastern time) Dr. Jess Armine will explain how stress creates illness. It's called the "Cell Danger Response".


    We have always known that very stressors can create illness in the human body and, frankly, we have given it "lip service".


    Last week Dr. Jess Armine and Shawn Bean attended SHEICON2015 given by Dr. Ben Lynch. Dr. Jess had the honor of boing o0ne of the speakers. The main feature in the entire seminar was the cell danger response and its relationship to mitochondrial dysfunction as well as the degradation of all your bodily processes.


    In other words, the very basis of disease and illness!


    Understanding the cell danger response is the path to healing. This upcoming Monday Dr. Jess Armine will, in his usual manner, make this complex concept easy to understand and fun! (trust me, it wasn't easy)  :-)


    Join us and learn! They'll be plenty of time for questions and answers. Dr. Armine will create a PowerPoint for everyone to follow along.


    We promised you cutting edge research and we are delivering! See you then!

    Invisibly Autistic: The Surprising Truth About "Seeming Normal"

    in Social Sciences

    In this episode of AspieFriendly, Lorin Neikirk explores a phenomenon that isn't often addressed: Invisible Autism.


    When someone knowing very little about autsim thinks about ASD, they usually think of children who spin and hand flap and either talk incessantly about trains (or dinosaurs or the weather) or who don't speak at all. All of these things may be true for some, but there is a whole group of people with autism who don't "seem" very autistic at all. Are they any less so? Not exactly, They simply present in a different way. Those with Aspergers often fall squarely in this category. Women with Aspergers even more so. It may surprise NTs to learn that some on the spectrum can seem so "normal" that others on the spectrum may not initially realize they are autistic. Women with autism quite often "fly under the radar" regarding detection. 


    Prompted by a conversation between Neikirk and her young-adult son (both of whom have Aspergers) this episode of AspieFriendly takes a closer look at what it's like to be Invisibly Autistic. Why does it happen, what are the pros and cons, and what do we do when we're faced with a difficult situation because of it? 


    Join us as we talk about these things and more, in Invisibly Autistic: The Surprising Truth About "Seeming Normal".
