    ADHD & Companion Conditions: A Journey of Self-Discovery

    in Self Help

    As is the case with many people with ADHD, Charley Burt is successful, smart, funny, and compassionate. But she doesn’t just have ADHD. Companion conditions typically co-exist with ADHD, and in Charley’s case, her special genetic make-up includes Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, Fibromyalgia, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome as well.


    In our conversation we also touch on how familial suicide has impacted both of us and fueled our passion to share with others the struggles involved in all forms of mental illness.


    You’ll surely enjoy Charley’s warmth and good nature as you listen to her share stories of self-discovery and self-disclosure mindful that these are both still a work in progress. She’s untangling what’s what. Considering that all of her, as she calls them, acronyms, have overlapping symptoms, determining what physical ailment is contributing to which mental issue is a puzzle she’s determined to solve.


    In fact, through the encouragement of a geneticist, she is in the process of setting up genetic mutation testing through 23andme! Personally, I can’t wait to find out what more information she’ll find out and share. She’s promised to come back and give us an update but don’t wait until then. For more about her journey go to embracingadultadhd.wordpress.com and subscribe. She writes almost every day something about her ADHD and its effects on her life and relationships.


    You can reach her on Twitter @CharleyBurt1 or visit her blog.

    Sterling's App, The New Version!

    in Health

    Got the New App from MTHFRSUPPORT.com? 50 pages!!!!!   Confused?


    Join us Monday night, March 23, 2015 at 8PM Eastern when Dr. Jess Armine interviews Sterling Hill-Erdei, the creator of "Sterling's App". Sterling will discuss the features of her new, robust app.


    The proper interpertation of the 23andme genes can give well trained health care providers indicators as to which pathways will not "hold up" under oxidative stress, which pathways will be more easily compromised and ultimately why you won't heal. In essence, the genes will act as pointers that will shed light on the darkness of hidden illnesses. This is the best app out there.


    Sterling Hill-Erdei is the quintessential expert in this arena! Join us on Monday night and learn from the best!!!


    See you then!
