    Godly Women and Mental Illness -- Write Stuff -- 5/19/2015

    in Entertainment

    Mental illness and Christianity have been at odds with each other for a number of years. For a long while, it was thought that any sign mental illness or cognitive impairment was a result of demonic possession. Later, those who suffered from these disorders were locked up in an institution away from the embarrassment of the family. Further still, as our medical knowledge grew, our diagnostic abilities have expanded our understanding of how the mind works.  And yet, even today, the topic of mental illness is still a taboo subject.

    For Christians who suffer from some type of mental illness or disorder, it may hit a double impact.   For the godly woman who is torn between her faith and her health problem, she may be having a hard time with reconciling the condition of her soul with the condition of her mental health. 

    Do godly women and mental illness go hand in hand? Are they compatible with each other? Can a woman of faith still suffer from bipolar depression or anxiety attacks? Is her faith dependent on her mental state?

    We'll be talking about this and more with our guest Barbara Rupp, author of The Woman at the Well Bible Study guide. You can call in at 646-595-2083, press 1 to be live on air. Or, you can download the WLUV radio mobile app. Or click on the link here: http://tobtr.com/s/7625919  Tune in!

    Down and dark days of brain injury survival with Host Michael Idell

    in Education

    Many of us have hard days in life just as anyone else does but with a brain injury, coping strategies are hugely different. 


    Positive reinforcement may need to come from family, friends, and caregivers but how can we do it within ourselves?


    Emotional impacts on the brain injured have a different level than the general public but it isn't impossible to achieve rewards through positive coping strategies. Let's discuss what we do to help, ideas what may be better, and alternative measures than medication.

    Dr. Terry Wahls: The Wahls Protocol

    in Lifestyle

    Dr. Terry Wahls is a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa and a staff physician at the Iowa City Veterans Affairs Hospital, where she teaches medical students and resident physicians, sees patients in traumatic brain injury and therapeutic lifestyle clinics with complex chronic health problems that often include multiple autoimmune disorders, and conducts clinical trials.


    She is also a patient with a chronic progressive neurological disorder, secondary progressive multiple sclerosis, which confined her to a tilt-recline wheelchair for four years. But thanks to the power of the Wahls Protocol™, which is based on Functional Medicine and the Wahls Paleo™ diet, Dr. Wahls restored her health and now pedals her bike five miles to work each day.

    Cam's Corner - The Story of a Young Stroke Survivor

    in Education

    Ray is a young stroke survivor.  It has been found that he was suffering from a rare condition called thoracic outlet syndrome or TOS for short. This caused an aneurysm to form in his subclavian artery.  TOS sent him through a round of surgeries and stays in the hospital.  Doctors started going over all his brain scans and investigating and found by comparing brain scans done before that he had suffered a stroke sometime around August of 2011.  He recovered.  then one morning with a horrible headache that would not go away, it was also accompanied by nausea and uncontrollable vomiting. He stayed home but on the 2nd day the pain was so unbearable and that he decided to call the doctor and was told to get to the ER. He went and the last thing he remembered was a voice saying, “you have significant bleeding in your brain and we are not equipped to handle this.”   He was having a hemorrhagic stroke. They had to do an emergency craniotomy to drain the blood from his brain. 


    This show is about stroke and brain injury and is for anyone interested in stroke with bits and pieces thrown in for inspiration, ways to be healthy, less stressed and more.  I want to be here to share and to lift up other stroke survivors or warriors.  I want to help you find out there are others going through what you have gone though.  Maybe not the same journey but a survivor none the less.  To give positive information, inspire and embrace what you have and continue moving forward.

    power of perception coaching with Beau Chatham

    in Spirituality

    My name is Beau Chatham and I am a Master Coach with The Burris Institute.I am also the CEO & Tribal Leader of Warrior Life Coach, an Atlanta, GA-based executive coaching practice, where I work with business professionals, athletes, and combat veterans.A little bit about my background – I was a commissioned Infantry officer in the United States Army.  I am Airborne Ranger qualified, saw ground combat in Grenada during Operation Urgent Fury, and served in numerous other command and training positions.I left military service after 10 years and found myself in the world of biotech and pharmaceutical commercialization, where I marketed injection and oral drug therapies. I also served as a corporate trainer, where I conducted and coordinated medical education programs for sales representative, focusing in the areas of anatomy, physiology, and disease state management.  My areas of teaching were in cardiovascular and neurological disorders.  It was here, that I was first introduced to the concept of Evidence-Based therapies and how important they are in gaining measurable outcomes.   This is what ultimately led me to finding The Burris Institute methods of coaching. remember following the country’s combat actions of post 9-11, not from the newspaper or the talking heads on the TV, but rather through medical journals.  Of particular note, I recall the longitudinal studies of Dr Charles Hoge published October of 2004, in the New England Journal of Medicine that addressed the growing mental health burden being produced from extended combat operations.As a warrior and medical educator, I knew that I wanted to help our returning combat veterans, so I started looking in to life skills coaching.  The problem was that so many of the life coaching schools insisted that coaching was for “healthy” people and that the emotional states of fear, guilt, and anger were best suited for psychiatry.
