    LIVE! with Cathi---Medication and Women's Feelings!

    in Fitness

    CIRCA 2015...More WOMEN are on psychiatric medications than ever before and staying on them far longer than was ever intended.  Sales of anti-depressants and ant--axiety meds have been booming in the past two decades, and they've been recently outpaced by anti-psychotic drugs, this quote from a psychiatrist..."I must tell you this is INSANE!"

    Women are moody (that's debatable)...by evolutionary design, we are hard-wired to be sensitive to our environments, empathic to our children's needs and intuitive of our partners' intentions.  Women's emotionality is a sign of health, not disease, it is a source of POWER-OUCH!


    Women are under constant pressure to...etc.

    Women are twice as likely to...etc.

    Monthly women experience emotions and...etc.

    Over-medicated emotions become...etc.

    Stop labeling sadness and anxiety as...etc.

    Will your medication run out? What will you do?

    in Health

    In a recent article in the New York Times points out that between 2007 and 2012 there had been a 3 fold increase in medication shortages. We're not talking asprin, we're talking live saving and live sustaining medications like nitroglycerine and cancer drugs that forces doctors into horrible situations. They have to find alternatives that may not work as well, or that is a place holder until the right medication comes along. This is costly because people will need to be in treatment for so much longer.

    Why do we have to be at the mercy of the big pharma and doctors? Can leading a healthier life eliminate the need for the medications? Do we have enough information on preventing cancer and other problems so we won’t have to rely on medications?

    Those are the topics I’ll be pondering today on Cross Link Radio.

    Cross Link Radio, health from the eye teeth on down. I’m here to help you understand some of the mysteries of health from the perspective of the oral health care provider, that’s me, Shirley Gutkowski. I’m a clinical dental hygienist since 1986.

    Dhana Blissett-Healthy Challenge Program to Counteract Medication Side Effects

    in Food

    Dhana Blissett, Nutritionist at Skyland Trail RTC in Atlanta Georgia joined Lon on August 1, 2014 to explain the pilot program they are starting called Healthy Challenge.  The students at Skyland Trail are enrolled there for treatment for fairly serious mental health issues.  Virtually all the students are on medications and since all medications have side effects that can be harmful, Skyland Trail established the Healthy Challenge pilot program to counteract these side effects in a holistic way.  The program is voluntary, but the positive preliminary results are convincing the staff to encourage all their students to be on this program eventually.  Healthy Challenge has three elements:  1.) strict attention to their diet.  2.) some form of physical activity.  That includes them wearing an activity meter measuring the steps they take in a day and each student has a pre-set goal of the number of steps they need to take.  And, 3.) a weekly psychoeducational session on topics such as obstacles to adequate physical activity or how to eat healthy while living a normal active lifestyle.
