    Increased Alcoholism Rates Post Gastric Bypass Surgery

    in Lifestyle

    In 2012 a study was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association that reports the percentage of patients abusing alcohol increased from 7.6% to 9.6% two years after gastric bypass surgery - potentially creating 2,000 alcoholics every year in the US.


    There is more than one theory on why this occurs.  Some say it is addiction transfer: a patient switches an addiction to food to an addiction to alcohol.  More recent evidence suggests an anatomical explanation - metabolic and hormonal changes triggered by gastric bypass surgery that leave patients especially vulnerable to alcoholism.  Maybe it is both - or neither?  The truth is nobody is 100% sure of why alcoholism rates increase post surgery.


    If you are struggling with alcoholism post-surgery, however, the reason why may not be as relevant as what to do about it.  There are unique challenges that face people whose alcoholism may be attributed to gastric bypass surgery, and on this episode of the Bubble Hour we will discuss this startling trend.  We will share more information about why experts feel this increased vulnerability to alcoholism occurs, and speak with special guest Jessica about her own experience with gastric bypass surgery, alcoholism and recovery.


    We are also excited to welcome Diane Grimaldi, DNP, PMHCS, BC as a guest on the show and an expert on this issue.


    Diane started her psychotherapy practice in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1984 after receiving her Masters Degree in Adult Mental Health Nursing from Boston College and becoming a board certified Clinical Specialist in Psychiatric Nursing. 


    In 2014 she received a Doctorate in Nursing Practice from the University of Massachusetts, Lowell.  For more information about Diane and her practice please visit www.grimaldicounseling.com.

    Trans-Pacific Partnership - The Death of Sovereignty with Meghan Sali

    in Politics

    Trans-Pacific Partnership


    12 nations, 11% of global population, 40% of the global economy, 25% of global imports, 30% of global exports. 800 million people bound by an agreement negotiated in secret from the citizens and almost all elected representatives. Who wrote it then? Trade representatives with multi-national corporate lobbyists and executives at the tables from start to finish.


    A 30 chapter agreement with 5 involving actual trade. Environment. Financial Services. Patents. Copyrights. Intellectual Property. Pharmaceuticals. Health Care. Investment. Labour. Market Access. Procurement. Tobacco. State Owned Enterprises. Biotechnology and GMO's. And a new iron-clad version of the infamous Investor State Dispute Settlement "mechanism" complete with secret tribunals, secret judgements and secret awards. 5,544 pages worth of regulations, schedules, indexes, timetables and LOOPHOLES to empower the most powerful corporations on earth to have veto power say over how signatory nations will live their day-to-day lives. This is the latest method for the mostly American corporate elite to bypass the WTO, exclude and isolate "unfriendly" economies, enslave "freindly" economies and laugh all the way to the bank.


    Protests have been raging in every "partner nation" for years as February 4 nears as the day for "signing" of the agreement in Auckland, New Zealand. There is no opting out of any section or provision unless stated before that signing by any nation. No renegotiation.


    We are joined by Meghan Sali, a digital rights specialist with OpenMedia,org, leading the organization's free expression campaigns. For the past two years, she has been co-ordinating the campaign to shed light on the implications of TPP as they relate to preserving our online rights and building a properous, inclusive digital future.


    Tune in and hear the facts on TPP.

    CUTV News Radio spotlights Sally Tennant of Healing With Mindset

    in Self Help

    Allenwood, NJ – The human body is designed to heal itself. It is always working toward a state of balance.


    Neuroscience has recognized that 95 percent of what we do in life is controlled by our subconscious programs, which are taken on in childhood.  As we look to do change, our brains are programmed to keep us safe. And our brains only know what has been, not what will be. The idea of change can elicit a stress response in the body and the mind.


    Sally Tennant is the founder of Healing With Mindset, a holistic energy practice dedicated to identifying and reprogramming negative subconscious beliefs that cause stress responses in the body so we can make new choices that serve us in our adult lives.


    “We can experience new things without stress,” says Sally. “Safety is stifling after a while.  At some point you’re going to know that you need to make changes in your life. When we make the decision to change what is and do something different, we are growing and learning and becoming more conscious. That’s what life is all about."


    Foremost among Sally’s techniques is the Mindset Technique. First developed by Dr. Michael Gallo, the Mindset Technique combines energy psychology, clinical kinesiology and quantum physics to bypass the limitations of traditional energy healing methods and identify the negative subconscious belief supporting client’s complaints.


    “I have found that there is nothing more rewarding than to be able to help others become congruent and well in all aspects of their lives,” says Sally. “What is great about Mindset is that it can be used in conjunction with any other healing modality or traditional medical protocols. This technique will not interfere with anything that you may be doing to get well; in fact, it can enhance what you are already doing.”
