    Lymphedema Voices: Sheryl #Project1000000Voices Lymphedema Is No Joke

    in Health

    First time I talked to Sherly, she told me that she had once been a teacher but hasn't been able to work FT in decades.  She has had Lymphedema since in the early 90s.  She has difficulty fulfilling her life, difficulty in transportation.  She has no way of getting a compression garment (which can cost $500) without having to choose between a garment or paying rent because her income is just that stressed already.  Complicated by tumors (one removed and another that needs to removed).  She has written her Represenative but hasn't had a response just yet.  Hopefully, he'll get on board with the Lymphedema Treatment Act which will authorize Medicare to pay for the garment that helps to keep the lymphedema from getting worse, which causes so many other dominoing issues (like mobility, possible MS, and other diseases that stem from the damaged lymphatic systerm.  


    In Texas, we have 3 co-sponsors for the Lymphedema Treatment Act, and we have many more to go.  There are 4 bipartisan leads and 99 co-sponsors of the Lymphedemat Treatment Act across the United States.  We really need about 200 co-sponsors for this bill to be passed in the House.  We need your support to help the many Sheryl's out there with similar stories.  Please go to the http://lymphedematreatmentact.org website to sign up being a Team Member in your State and go to the "How You Can Help" and send your legislators personalize letters.


    Listen to the show that we had on November 20th as well for some other call to actions that you can do to help.

    4/14/2015 Community Paramedicine and Physicians Advisory Committee

    in Caregiving

    The Wisconsin EMS Live broadcast on Tuesday, April 14 is dedicated to Community Paramedicine and recent action by the Physicians Advisory Committee.


    The CommunityParamedicine conversation will run from 9:00 to 9:40 a.m.  Our guests include Minnesota Ambulance Association’s Buck McAlpin, PAAW President Patrick Ryan, and city of Milwaukee Fire Department’s Michael Wright.  All three are deeply involved in CP and building the infrastructure to deliver it the right way here in Wisconsin.  Like anything new or evolving some education and learning is required to move forward, and there will be many questions to ask and answer.


    Community Paramedicine programs have been evolving in Minnesota, Colorado and Texas.  An architect in Minnesota’s CP development is Buck McAlpin, director of government affairs for the Minnesota Ambulance Association and North Memorial Medical Transportation in Robbinsdale, Minnesota.  Given his experience in leading CP concepts in Minnesota, McAlpin’s knowledge and expertise is being sought nationally, to include by the Professional Ambulance Association of Wisconsin.


    At 9:40 a.m. we’ll be joined by Dr. Suzanne Martens, Chair of the Physicians Advisory Committee.  Her group recently recommended use of nitrous oxide as an option to control pain management at the Advanced EMT level and higher.  Another recommendation is allowing one paramedic and one trained airway technician to perform a medication assisted advanced airway procedure that under current situations requires two paramedics.


    As always, the live show offers caller questions.  Make sure to listen live on your phone or any internet connected device on Tuesday, April 14 starting at 9:00 a.m. central time and lasting 60 minutes.

    Lympedema Voices #Project1000000Voices Lymphedema Treatment Act 2014 Reflection

    in US Government

    In September 2014, a group of lymphedema advocates converged upon the Capitol Hill to talk to the US House of Represenatives and Senators about the Lymphedema Treatment Act, as well as had a Congressional Hearing to empasize the importance that it means to many lymphedema patients, caregivers, physicians, and more.  As a result, we ended up with 4 bipartisan lead sponsors from the House of Represenatives, and 91 cosponsors from many of the States.  We really need about 200 cosponsors to help ensure that this Bill passes the House.  


    Guidance was provided by the Lymphedema Advocacy Group, National Lymphedema Network, and many other supporters of the Bill.


    Join us on our Lymphedema Journey and Advocacy for a discussion on a reflection of those this year's journey at Capitol Hill (DC) and a call of action that we would like for you to do as soon as possible.

    On tonight's show:



    We'll recap the Maryland Republican Party spring convention, and the announcement of our Red, White, and Blue dinner speaker.

    The Baltimore Sun is honoring Governor Larry Hogan as Marylander of the Year, despite opposing him every step of the way.

    Speaking of Governor Hogan, what the left can't do electorally they'll try to take in court.

    The MTA chief is being shown the door. Does this mean help is finally on the way?

    And just because Governor Hogan has laid down the law on new taxes doesn't mean that Democrats in Annapolis got the memo.

    Reversing Diabetes

    in Health

    SHOW DESCRIPTION:


    Diabetes is affecting this country in epidemic proportions. If you're one of the 24 million Americans living with diabetes, it is important that you get this condition under control, for it is a leading cause of blindness, kidney failure, heart attack, and amputation. Physicians are quick to prescribe drugs for diabetes which actually increase the risk of heart attack. Join me this week as I discuss Reversing Diabetes with Dr. Julian Whitaker how to reduce the risk and severity of complications through diet, exercise, nutritional supplementation and innovative therapies that are overlooked by conventional medicine. These natural treatments are very effective in reducing and often eliminating the need for drugs in patients with type 2 diabetes. Although patients with type 1 diabetes cannot expect to get off medication altogether, their insulin requirements can be reduced and, most important, their risk of complications significantly decreased.

    Dr. Lori Warren, OB/GYN- necessity of hysterectomies

    in Lifestyle

    Chronic pelvic pain, painful sex and heavy bleeding may send some women to the doctor fearing the worst – the need for removal of their reproductive organs. But while physicians perform hysterectomies on more than 500,000 women in America each year, new research shows that one in five of those women may not even need the surgery.  


     Top hysterectomy surgeon and medical advisor Dr. Lori Warren is answering questions for women who need help now!


    Each year millions of women visit their doctors after suffering from pelvic and abdominal pain and many may be told they need to have a hysterectomy.  For young women who want to have children, having a hysterectomy is a devastating blow. Even women over 40 have lots of questions about how it will affect their health.  But new research suggests that as many as 1 in 5 women may not even need the surgery. 


    1.    Dr. Warren, why bring attention to this now and dedicate the month of May to awareness?


    2.    The research shows some pretty shocking statistics.  Why are so many women having hysterectomies that don’t need them?


    3.    Why is this surgery so often seen as a “go to solution” by Ob-Gyn doctors?


    4.    In this day in age, why do younger women avoid talking about the symptoms they’re facing, even with their own doctors?


    5.    If so many women don’t need to have the surgery, who really needs it and who doesn’t?
