    Why does Mommy hurt? An interview with author Elizabeth Christy on chronic pain

    in Health

    Elizabeth M. Christy lives in Northern Virginia with her husband James, son Jimmy (5), and daughter Lucy (newborn). She is the best-selling author of the children’s book "Why Does Mommy Hurt? Helping Children Cope with having a Caregiver with Chronic Pain, Fibromyalgia, or Autoimmune Disease," and blogs on parentswithpain.com and potomacfallsmama.blogspot.ca.  Additionally, she works as a Systems Integrator for TASC. In addition to basic survival, Elizabeth enjoys writing, sewing (especially in straight lines!), and reading good memoirs.


    “Why Does Mommy Hurt?” is a great resource to talk to children about chronic pain and illness. On this episode, we'll discuss the guilt and shame many parents suffering from chronic pain feel about their parenting. The fact is that parents with chronic pain or illness can be just as awesome as “normal” parents when it comes to raising kids, and if you love your kids, that’s all that matters.  We may not be able to walk a mile to the playground, cook a 7-course organic meal from scratch, or volunteer on a field trip to the amusement park, but that’s not what really matters. If you love your kids, you will find your own way, and your kids will know it. Also, many parents in this situation feel very alone, especially when first diagnosed. There are millions of families out there in the same situation, you are not alone, and you have support out there waiting for you!

    Low Back Pain with Dr Owen Williamson

    in Health

    Low back pain is among the most common chronic pain conditions in Canada. Four out of five adults will experience at least one episode of back pain at some time in their lives. The cause of back pain, however, is not always apparent; in fact, in approximately 85% to 90% of individuals with back pain, no specific cause can be identified.  To help us better understand this common condition and learn how to manage low back pain, we'll be speaking with Dr Owen Williamson. Dr Williamson is an orthopaedic spine surgeon and specialist pain medicine physician. He is also an Adjunct Senior Lecturer in the Department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.  In 2007, Dr Williamson became the first orthopaedic surgeon in Australia to become a Fellow of the Faculty of Pain Medicine, Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists in 2007. He is on the Education and Training Committee and an examiner for the Faculty of Pain Medicine and is involved in the development of pain education programs in both Australia and Canada.

    The Wisdom of Pain

    in Health

    All pain has its purpose. Sometimes there is an obvious cause and effect and others the meaning and purpose of pain is illusive to the naked eye. This show will help us to turn pain into a journey of self-love. Think of your body as a computer in which all information is stored. You (as your mind), are the person operating your computer. Sometimes your computer expresses symptoms of a virus or crashes from too many programs running because you haven't updated your software to the lastest model. Our intention for this Heart of the Matter Show is to use The LifeLine to awaken a new understanding of pain and even more, reprogram the old subconscious programs. Our journey together will reveal the invisible truth of physical pain and as a natural by-product of the process itself,  heal it. Quickly and naturally.

    Let's pray like: Jesus, King David, Daniel, Prophetess Anna, Paul and Silas and you!


    Luke 18:1 (KJV) 
    1 And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;
     


    Matthew 6:9-13 (KJV) 


    9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
    10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
    11 Give us this day our daily bread.
    12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
    13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
     


    Let us pray until we have the answer!

    Urologist and CPP Specialist, Dr. Jeannette Potts, Discusses Male Pelvic Pain

    in Health

    Urologist and chronic pelvic pain specialist, Dr. Jeannette Potts, joins us from the West Coast today as she discusses her work within the field of pelvic pain in men. She will specifically be discussing the role of Prostatitis and Interstitial Cystitis/Painful Bladder Syndrome. She will also discuss why she chooses to focus on men and the issue around gendered medicine.


    After practicing at the Cleveland Clinic's Glickman Urological Institute for 15 years, Dr. Potts realized she needed to find a better way to provide more holistic care to men suffering from Urological Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndromes (UCPPS). During her tenure at the Cleveland Clinic she became more subspecialized, focusing her work in prostatitis, chronic pelvic pain, and psychosexual well-being. Dr. Potts was named among the "best Urologists" in North East Ohio, by Cleveland Magazine.


    She has been a passionate collaborator with the NIH and the IPCN, to advance research and care of patients suffering from UCPPS. She has published numerous articles in urology and family medicine and has given over 100 lectures on UCPPS and related topics, as an invited speaker at medical and urological conferences world-wide.


    Dr. Potts is Assistant Clinical Instructor, on the faculty of Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and University Hospitals of Cleveland.
