    Brain Injury Radio Show with Michael Idell - Positive Motivation

    in Education

    Positive motivation has an impact on everyone involved with family members, caregivers and those involved with neurological impairments.



    Recovery processes have an undoubtable negative impact on invidividuals without a positive influence involved.

    A positive perception assists everyone through coping strategies including the initial impact on the news, the struggles involved, and the accomplishments made.

    Families and caregivers need to have somewhere to go to when they have their struggles like giving up their lives, paying bills, making time for another life, and the responbilities which ensue.


    Then most importantly is teamwork! ANYONE INVOLVED NEEDS TO LISTEN, LEARN, AND COMMUNICATE!

    This is why we (ASBISG.org) have conference calls and meetings for caregivers. All of the attention isnt focused on just the survivors lives. Caregivers and family members understanding, communication, love and affection have an enormous affect on the brain injured. We are all a product of our environment. The community needs to help one another and help each other through the good times and bad.

    Another Fork in the Road: Ann Boriskie - Director of Brain Injury Peer Visitor

    in Education

    Ann Boriskie, a TBI survivor of more than 17-years says, “Get involved. Volunteer.” “By helping others with a brain injury, you truly help yourself in so many ways.” Ann is the Brain Injury Peer Visitor Association Director and her motto is “YOU CAN!”


     


    Every TBI survivor and caregiver has encountered a fork in the road that has diverted his or her life-plan. A car accident, a fall from the roof, doing one more chin-up, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College plans, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slip from reality as dreams turn to struggle. These unexpected life-happenings that divert one from his or her chosen path in life can be devastating. But as Yogi Berra once said, "If you come to a fork in the road, take it." Life is all about choices!

    Canceling Cancer

    in Self Help

    The cancer epidemic has been created by increasing the stress and toxicity of our lifestyle, and decreasing the quality of the food supply. Cancer and every other degenerative disease result from the underlying conditions of the nearly universal illness, “distress of the organism”, which are tension, toxicity and malnutrition.


    The consume now / pay later debt trap rat race, the public poisons spread throughout our living environment, and the corporate food devoid of nutrients, put the body in this distressed state. Then the body sputters and limps along without the immune strength and resiliency to overcome the rapid deterioration of cancer.


    Those who turn to the medical establishment for help are ripped off financially and physically until the end. The fear, stress and poisoning from entering the cancer industry’s realm makes it much more difficult to eliminate the cancer.


    To cancel cancer, it is crucial to become aware of effective methods of calming stress, the sources of real nutrition, detoxification and how to avoid the vast array of public poisons as much as possible. At the same time, pursuing one’s life purpose with an affirmative loving attitude is very beneficial.

    Countering Cancer

    in Self Help

    Cancer does not come out of the blue. It develops as a result of underlying conditions of distress, which is really the only "dis-ease" there is, eroding a person's health over time. You can prevent cancer by reducing the distress that causes it.


    There are three interrelated aspects of this disease of distress: tension, toxicity and malnutrition. These weakening influences interplay in the development of degenerative disease, especially cancer.


    Stress and tension result from the deep debt rat race lifestyle the system has set up for us. People ignorant of taking care of themselves naturally have very poor nutritional habits. The strongest influence on the incidence of cancer though, is toxicity.


    Public poisons are effecting all of us. They are dispersed into our lives intentionally, in the water, the food, the air and many of our home furnishings and household products.


    To counter cancer, relaxation, detoxification and life supporting nutrition are essential. It is important to include extra oxygen, antioxidants and alkalization.

    Brain Injury Communication with Michael Idell Brain Injury Bonding (Prerecorded)

    in Social Networking

    You do not have to be brain injured to be involved in the brain injury community. What you will learn about is how we are each other’s family in many circumstances. Because brain injuries don't just involve a traumatic brain injury, a stroke, a person who is mentally handicapped, or someone seen with a walker; there are hundreds of us who are with master’s degrees, major accomplishments, happy families, children, marriages, and careers who are brilliant and well mannered.


    So many in the public don’t understand who we are. They don't understand this could be them in a moment’s notice as life events occur at any given time. Survivors and caregivers unite and we build a family of our own! We talk about what we have become and how well we stand together! 


    What we can do and will do is educate the public! We show individuals life is way too short and need to enjoy every second we have while we are here ALIVE! We do not let people whole us down! We will not allow anyone to talk down to us. We are strong and we are proud we have accomplished so much. 


    Join us together for a positive approach in life! Whining and complaining about how bad your life is, is just a waste of valuable time!


    We Talk About What We Have Become and How Well We Stand Together!
