    Bi-polar Disorder and Neurofeedback testimony.

    in Moms and Family

    Tune in as we discuss the facts which Doctors don't want you to know because they want you to depend on drugs and not have a quality of life.



    Neurofeedback is an increasingly promising alternative treatment for a variety of psychiatric disorders. For readers who are unfamiliar with this type of treatment, neurofeedback is also known as electroencephalogram (EEG) biofeedback therapy. It uses sensors on the scalp to measure EEG frequencies, offering real-time feedback (through video or sound) that rewards frequencies associated with relaxed attention, and suppresses frequencies associated with under- or over-arousal. The goal of this training is to develop skills for self-regulation of brain activity.
    Medications for bipolar disorder are very problematic due to their side effects, compliance rates, and the consequences of taking them over a long period. They can cause a variety of troublesome or even dangerous side effects, including:


    Liver toxicity
    Weight gain
    Rashes
    Fatigue
    Sexual side effects
    Feeling “flat and robotic”

    Living Peaceful with Bi-Polar Disorder

    in Women

    The morning of August 16, 2005 expectations for my future and the future of my family met with the harshest of realities. My husband had disappeared and I didn’t know if he was ever coming back. Colored by the destructive forces of bi-polar mood disorder, Waking Up in the Middle of Nowhere is the story of Allison and Grant Johnson and their search for love in spite of seemingly impossible odds. Their “against all odds attitude” and the heartfelt sharing of the battlefield that became their life will touch your heart, magnify your faith and intensify your belief in God and his miraculous works of healing and restoration. How did they survive, and perhaps even thrive, in spite of the invisible ogre that threatened them at every turn?







    Allison Johnson is the author of "Waking Up in the Middle of Nowhere: Finding my way in a Bi-Polar Marriage". She has also written several articles and a short story.

    As an eighteen year old Allison fell in love with Jesus and has been chasing after him ever since. She is passionate about Christian women’s issues and created Resurrectedgirl.com; a writing, speaking and life coaching ministry aimed to the wounded hearts of women.

    Allison and her husband make their home in San Antonio, Texas with their son, Zachary (12) and their daughter, Kayla (11), and of course their big yellow dog, Yukon.

    You can find her at www.resurrectedgirl.com or www.resurrectedgirl.blogspot.com

    Living with Bi Polar disorder with author Rachel Pappas!

    in Self Help

    "Hopping Roller Coasters" tells the story of author Rachel Pappas who was an in-your face mother, but loved her daughter more than life. "Mom doesn’t play around when the neighborhood bully’s taunting got way out of hand. She stood up to hard-nosed teachers who didn’t get that you don’t punish a child who’s flailing; Marina needed help. And she sat in the front row, clapping till her palms hurt when her half-Greek, half-Jewish daughter took the podium at her predominantly African American school—glowing in her cap, gown, and greased cornrows." No one was going to hurt Marina. No one. Except Rachel herself, diagnosed with bipolar disorder, a condition her daughter would struggle with too. This is the story of a mother and daughter’s journey, a two-decade-long roller coaster ride. Actually you’re hopping from one roller coaster to the next through this openly told story of unexpected turns and pure love. A story that’s both intense and quite funny at times as Rachel takes you on the journey of Marina's psychiatric hospitalizations, cutting and overdosing, while Rachel deals with her own demons and the diagnosis of cancer. This openly, honestly told story finally comes full circle leaving us with lessons on redefining success, mortality, loving, forgiving and being forgiven.

    Autism In Love

    in Parents

    A film that will make you smile, cry and most importantly, think.  Brilliant documentary about autism and the emotion of love. 


    Guests Matt Fuller/Director


    Carolina Groppa/Producer


    Autism in Love is a feature length documentary that explores the lives of four autistic adults as they pursue and manage romantic relationships.


    The manifestations of autism affect everyone a little differently.


    What is seldom found are stories about what happens once these kids grow up; what happens after the sleepless nights, years of therapies, special schooling and exhaustive treatments? What happens when children with autism become adults with autism and want to have lives of their own?


    Unfortunately, when it comes to romantic relationships, people with autism have a distinct disadvantage. Being plagued by this developmental disorder jeopardizes the core characteristics of a relationship - communication and social interaction. Ostensibly it seems that some may never truly experience romantic love, or at least love by a typical definition. However, we know this to be false. We have innumerable instances of people with autism falling in love and having meaningful romantic relationships.


    AUTISM IN LOVE has captured those yet unexplored experiences. We've harnessed the power of cinema to reveal the truths of this otherwise marginalized community, and we're presenting a personal and critical perspective on the most important aspect of the human condition... love.

    A New Strategy for Suicide Prevention

    in Health

    Drs. Barbara Stanley and J. John Mann will be speaking


    Every year, there are more than 30,000 suicides and ten times as many suicide attempts in the United States.  Better prevention is urgently required. That requires improving our knowledge of the causes of suicidal behavior.  We know psychiatric disorders, most commonly major depression, are associated with suicide. But most people with a psychiatric disorder never attempt suicide. The group at higher risk of suicide have a predisposition to suicidal behavior. Learning about how genes and childhood experiences affect how we deal with stress, depression and make decisions, and how those functions are in turn related to brain functioning are key to understanding why people die by suicide.  The Conte Center for Translational Neuroscience at Columbia University and the New York State Psychiatric Institute, funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, has been at the forefront of this research. 


    Differences in brain circuitry in suicide attempters are linked to the predisposition to suicidal behavior and are the result of a combination of genes and childhood adversity. Evaluating brain circuitry of family members of those who have suicided or made serious nonlethal suicide attempts may identify a higher risk group.  The Conte Center for Suicide Prevention uses two brain imaging modalities, positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), along with several biobehavioral measures to study risk and resilience factors for suicide in patients with major depression. 


    In this radio program, we will describe how we seek to prevent suicide by studying the brain biology and abnormalities in stress coping and mood regulation that increase risk of suicidal behavior, and then seeking ways to reverse these effects.
