    Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia


    Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH) occurs when the diaphragm fails to form or to close totally and an opening allows abdominal organs into the chest cavity. This inhibits lung growth.


    CDH occurs in approximately 1 in every 2,500 births (1,600 cases in the U.S. each year). The diaphragm is formed in the first trimester of pregnancy and controls the lungs' ability to inhale and exhale. The cause of CDH is not yet known.


    CHERUBS - The Association of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Research, Awareness, and Support


    Founded in 1995, we are an international charity, helping over 5000 families in 60 countries.

    CHAPTER IX. PHYSIOLOGICAL EFFECT OF THE COMPLETE BREATH.

    in Spirituality

    The Yogis' ideal is a body strong in all its parts, under the control of a masterful and developed Will, animated by high ideals.  


    The Western world is paying much attention to Physical Culture just now, which is a good thing. But in their enthusiasm they must not forget that the exercise of the external muscles is not everything.


    The diaphragm is Nature's principal instrument for this internal exercise.

    John Carver Show - The Unbreakable Human Spirit - Theo Androus

    in Self Help

    I first heard Theo Androus back in 2003.  The Catholic Herald shares a little about Theo:


    "


    On a Wednesday evening in 1999, the slightly built Androus took a shot at goal in a coed soccer game in Alexandria, but never saw the 6-foot 3-inch, 240-lb goalie who crashed into him. The impact shattered two bones beneath Androus’ knee into six pieces, causing "unbelievable pain," he recalled. He was taken to INOVA Alexandria Hospital where surgeons stabilized the fracture, inserting a titanium rod through the center of his tibia. Androus spent a month in bed and three months in a wheelchair recovering from the injury.


    Androus, who wore leg braces as a child to correct a congenital condition and survived a head-on car crash on the George Washington Parkway in 1989, said he had to set a goal for himself in order to get well. His goal was running the 2000 Marine Corps Marathon.


    "Life is about making choices," Androus told the assembly. As an Ireton student, he didn’t see the point of studying geometry or trigonometry and remembers begging math teacher Richard Bulcavage for a C, but publicly thanked him last week for giving him a D, the grade he deserved. Androus said he regretted never having had the chance to thank the late Coach James McGrath for his influence. "You have people here who care so much about you," Androus said."

    Life Happens...

    in Health

    Greetings! 


    I hope all is going well where you live. Thank you for listening to this podcast. Our scheduled show for April 27th will not broadcast as I will be enroute to be with friends and their son who calls me his "Aunt." He is 12 and facing open heart surgery. The unraveling of their lives occurred at a track meet. Similar to many other athletes who unknowingly have a congenital heart disease, the day started well until he was on the ground, blacked out. Thankfully, he is one who will be able to mount a surgeon's table. The long and short of the matter is that life happens and I am accommodating it. The show will pause for several weeks.


    Plans for the next show have been updated to Monday, June 1st at 3:30, PST. I look forward to "seeing" you then. Thanks for listening and remember to LIVE WELL!
