    Success Story: Overcoming Scoliosis and Degenerative Disk Disease

    in Health

    July 17, 2014: Back pain is common, but for Barbara Jones, it created a domino effect that affected her whole body.  As a teenager, she had rod fusion surgery to address a severe case of scoliosis. Years later, she had back surgery again to address symptoms of degenerative disk disease.


    In this episode, she and her physical therapist discuss how these conditions didn't just affect her back, but her whole body. She had severe tightness throughout her whole body that affected her mobility and ability to exercise, and ultimately caused her to tear a rotator cuff.

    How to Forgive the Unforgivable

    in Self Help

    Join host Kelly Galea and her guest Belinda Farrell for this conversation about forgiveness.


    Forgiveness is often misinterpreted. We cannot change the past or what happened to us. But we can change the meaning we give it. Learn the real meaning of "forgiveness," which is based on an ancient Relationship Resolution Process called "Ho'oponopono."


    Experience the freedom of self-forgiveness once and for all, and with that freedom, live a life unshackled to negativity, the past or limitations!

    Mike Ferry - wrote a book showing how we can help kids develop habits for happiness and success in life. I'm sharing the message with anyone who cares about kids and their long-term well-being. Happiness leads to success, and we can become happier people if we develop certain habits. We can teach our kids these habits. Also, it is possible to become more creative over time. This is great news, because our kids will need to create a safer, more prosperous, and more sustainable future.
