    How to use LifeWave Patches for Addictions and Cravings

    in Health

    Addictions can be anything: food, exercise, alcohol, compulsive behaviors, or other addictive drugs.  Many doctors will try to offer you other medications to reduce the craving, they are simply switching out one substance for another! However, what few people don't realize is that the addiction or “craving” can be curbed energetically. 


    All-natural acupuncture LifeWave patches can acutally curb craving when properly applied to the appropriate acupuncture points - without the side effects of medication. Join Dr. Karen and Dr. Dennis as they discuss how to use the patches so that you can find quick and lasting relief from addictive cravings.  


    Dr. Dennis’ unique research expertise includes physical fitness, endorphins, and emotional stability, and he is a metaphysician of Asian medicine - all of which gave him insight into exercise addiction and the endorphin system that can be influenced energetically by acupuncture and LifeWave patches.    


    Be sure to call in live to have your questions answered by the doctors themselves!

    Stars Clap Books over Bullys

    in Education

    Join us each Wendsday  as we bring back the joy of reading a book- Our Current Book is Because of the Moon by C.J. Cutayne


    Obedience is for dogs,” spouts Jay Roberts, a mischievous teen with a wicked sense of humor. Arrested for his involvement in a chop shop, Jay has two choices: go to juvenile detention or move to the impoverished Indian reservation his mother shunned fourteen years ago where his estranged grandfather will oversee Jay’s penance. Either way he won't enjoy the fruits of his latest prank "Rat-Day". 

    Jay doesn’t belong in the run-down village and vows to return to the city when his sentence over, if not sooner. He resents his frequently absent mother for making him move three weeks before school is over. A school where everyone calls him "Apple" for some reason. Jay goes through the motions of his community service while planning his escape. His plan to stop the school bully will either win him the respect of his peers or turn him into "apple sauce". 

    Keeping everyone at arms length, Jay watches with indifference as family by family, the people move away. After thousands of years on their ancestral land the villagers have given up hope of survival. Gradually Jay learns to appreciate his Grampa and the quirky tribe members. When Grampa points to Orion's belt, in the sky, Jay asks "If his belt fell down would we see a full moon?" and the two click. 

    Jay devises a plan to keep the village together protecting the history and tradition he is inherently a part of. When the plan threatens to fall apart can Jay reach out to the unreliable village alcoholic to pull them through?

    How to Surmount the Tough Times and Pain in Life To Find the Awaiting Joy

    in Self Help

    As an infant, Lynne Cockrum-Murphy survived the tragic house fire that claimed her father and two sisters with severe burns over much of her body. She lived most of her life with a severely depressed and alcoholic mother, and saw her mom contemplate suicide with a razor blade in hand. She endured sexual abuse by a trusted male relative, along with a gang rape in a darkened station wagon. She lived through her stepfather being crushed to death in a logging accident and her mother being murdered in a bar-room robbery.


    If--after all she has been through--Lynne Cockrum-Murphey is radiantly happy and living a life of pure service to the world, don't you think she can teach you a thing or two? 


    Indeed she can! Living Hope: Steps to Leaving Suffering Behind is Cockrum-Murphy's empowering new book, an Amazon #1 best seller, taking people from hopelessness to hope. This is the woman you want at your side when you are in such deep pain and chronic misery that you don't see the way out. And you can't understand why bad things keep happening to you or to other "good" people you love.


    With a transcendent spirit that knew there must be something better ahead, she kept searching for answers and with much time, trial and error, wise teachers, communal support, deep research and reading, and personal introspection, she ultimately triumphed over her pain and suffering, finding the steps to a joyful, deeply fulfilling life that includes a loving partner and a calling to help others. It's those steps she interweaves in her book as she tells her own remarkable story that takes her from surviving to thriving.

    Dropping the "A" Word - Moving From Contemplation to Action

    in Lifestyle

    We get a lot of emails from people saying they are still drinking but are concerned they may have a problem, or are trying not to drink and listen to this show as one of their tools. We are so grateful that the show helps people on their journey towards, or in, sobriety.  One pattern we see is that the arc of contemplating “am I or aren’t I an alcoholic?” looks very similar for most people.  This is especially true of people who are earlier on in this process and who have yet to experience many outward ramifications from their drinking.


    We can spend a lot of time thinking about whether or not we are truly an alcoholic, and this is an obstacle to taking action about your drinking.


    So we thought it would be helpful to talk about what this contemplative arc looks like, for many people, and provide a few resources that can be helpful in finding community that can help (because, as we talk about all the time on this show, community is the key to getting sober).

    An Alcoholic Family in Crisis with Alberta Sequira

    in Family

    Alcoholism is a family disease, a deadly one that cannot be fought by the substance abuser alone. That said, it is always an uphill battle. Those close to the alcoholic suffer tremendously. Logic does not work when dealing with addicts, nor does pleading or crying. We cannot force them to get help. We can only love and support them, give them every reason to want sobriety for themselves, and then pray that they will choose survival.


    Today's special guest, Alberta Sequeira has lived this nightmare and fought this battle twice; first with her husband, and then with her daughter. Tragically, both of these battles were lost. Her husband and daughter both succumbed to their diseases. In the hopes that other families suffering similar addictions will recognize the problem, come out of hiding, and seek help without fear or embarrassment, Alberta has shared her story. She has written two hearfelt memoirs; Someone Stop This Merry-Go-Round: An Alcoholic Family in Crisis, and Please, God, Not Two: This Killer Called Alcoholism.


    Alberta Sequeira is a writer, four-time award winning author, motivational speaker, and director/producer/co-host of a Massachusetts Cable TV show. She also teaches workshops for writers. Today she will tell her story, sharing hope and inspiration to all.

    Why Would You Love Your Addiction?

    in Self Help

    What if addiction is not about what you do but rather about what you are refusing to be?  What are you denying yourself?   "Love Your Addiction" provides a dialogue between you, the listener & Jyude Allbright, your host, so you can see, hear & feel how to love your addiction for what is has shown you about you.  Then, you can easily let it go if you choose or not.  These dialogues are for everyone and anyone who has found that the traditional 12 Step programs are not aligned with the spiritual beliefs of pure potentiality & limitlessness.
