    in Spirituality

    Reiki for Alzheimer’s, Depression, Anxiety, Caregiver Stress, Pain

    Scientific validation of the effectiveness of Reiki has helped bring this method more and more to the mainstream, where it is able to aid patients in many realms. There are several vital areas where Reiki and other touch/energy therapies significantly aid people with dementia and their caregivers.  The first is that there is an indication from published, peer-reviewed research that Reiki can help address memory issues in people with mild cognitive impairment and mild Alzheimer’s.

    There are also several other published studies that demonstrate that Reiki helps both depression and anxiety both among people with chronic medical issues, as well as in those do not.  One of the often reported outcomes of Reiki treatment is a state of calm relaxation.  In that dementia patients can have problems with agitation, Reiki’s calming influence can be greatly appreciated.

    Dementia patients often have other significant medical issues that might cause them to experience chronic or episodic pain. Using narcotic medication in people with cognitive impairment can make that impairment worse, so finding effective non-narcotic interventions that reduce pain can be vital.  Several research studies studies show that pain can be significantly reduced through the use of Reiki, both in cases where the pain is chronic and short-term.

    Caregiver stress and burn out is another vital area where Reiki can help.  Nurses have added Reiki to their work in large numbers, and studying then as a population prone to burn out and compassion fatigue has demonstrated that Reiki can help prevent and heal caregiver stress and overwhelm. This is particularly true when caregivers use Reiki for self-help on a regular basis.

Alzheimer’s doesn’t just affect those afflicted; it takes an enormous toll on the caregivers: family, spouses, the children. The baby boomers are facing a crisis. If no effective treatment or cure, 50% of those over 85 will get Alzheimers.

    It is alzheimer's disease. What do we do now?

    in Caregiving

    Today's guest is Kristine Broome, caregiver services coordinator with The Family Caregiver Support Program in Seattle.  

    In her own words, "I have been in my  current position assisting family caregivers for about a dozen years, so I am very familiar with the issues, concerns and challenges faced by family caregivers. Our program hopes to provide a range of information about available resources and referrals for family caregivers so they can feel supported in this demanding and stressful role. Caregivers need guidance and support as they cope with the needs of their care receiver while often experiencing stress and uncertainty as to what lies ahead. We liken it to a journey they don't have to navigate on their own. The Family Caregiver Support Program is there to be with them on this unique journey."

    Mess With MS; How M.S. Changed Me

    in Education

    This is about how M.S. changed my life.

    MS is the most debilitating neurological disease. When I discovered that I was diagnosed with it, it changed my life. I only knew to continue approaching life the way I always had: as a survivor! That does not imply that I did not make mistakes along the way - as people do when the road they thought they were taking in their life turns into a new one. Through friendship, family, spirituality, and the many MS role models I had, I began to beat back the monster of this disease. Their in,  I opened up my life to a journey of adventure: Learning things any normal person can do to enhance their lives after MS&brain injury. Id love it if you'd join me in my journey; where we all can learn to be better versions of ourselves!
