    "Dying to Fit In" Erica McKenzie on Near Death Experiences & Dialogues with God

    in Self Help

    Near Death Experience and dialogues with God while clinically dead startle readers of Erica McKenzie's book, "Dying To Fit In" as detailed in this hour interview on Dr. Carol Francis Talk Radio.  Binge eating, bulimia, diet pills, anorexia, the unnatural urge to be unhealthily skinny --these practices drive many women into the darkest of secret pathways, leading to emotional and physical death.   Why would women so disrespect, even hatefully treat their bodies and risk everything because skinny becomes their self-defined trophy or proof of being worthy?   Erica McKenzie explains this frightening trap of "thin means beauty" from her own dreadfully harried eating, purging, diet pills craze, and starvation journey into death.   Erica McKenzie then reveals her miraculous journey into God's very threshold while clinically dead.  Share her many dialogues with God about human worth, self-respect. love and freedom to honor self and others with trememdous depth in this interview.   Following the trials detailed in this quick and moving book "Dying to Fit In,"  this interview with Clinical Psychologist Dr. Carol Francis and author Erica McKenzie expounds on further profound truths which will help listeners view life from genuine and healthy perspectives instead of the chains of bodily torturous starvation, purging, and weakening slow death.  

     Dr. Carol Francis, Psychologist, Marriage Counselor, Family Therapist and Hypnotherapist, can be reached through drcarolfrancis.com or 310-543-1824  and her book "If You Can't Stop Eating, Maybe You're Hungry:  Reset Your Cravings"

    On Death and Dying

    in Spirituality

    Today's show is on a topic that will one day, late or soon, affect us all:  death and dying.  So much illusion and romanticism, horror, and just plain ridiculousness surround our ideas of death, so let's set the record straight.  We'll talk about this subject from the perspectives of the dying and the living to get a thorough understanding and, by the end of the show, you'll realize that this is a loving universe that supports you entirely and that there is nothing to fear from this most natural process.

    Gradual Dying and End-of-Life Care, Part 1

    in Self Help

    The Bible says in John 11:25-26: "Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?"

    The featured quote for this episode is from Anaïs Nin. She said, "People living deeply have no fear of death."

    Our topic for today is titled "Gradual Dying and End-of-Life Care (Part 1)" from the book, "The Art of Dying: Living Fully into the Life to Come" by Rob Moll. And, I want to remind you to take advantage of our special offer. If you enjoy this podcast, please feel free to purchase a copy of this book -- "The Art of Dying" by Rob Moll. It is available on our website for just $20. 

    While 20th-century medicine drastically changed how we die, it has also had a more subtle — but no less profound — effect. Because of modern medicine, dying often takes a long time. One study found that most elderly are diagnosed as having a disease three years before it will eventually end their lives. On top of that a Rand study found that “Americans will usually spend two or more of their final years disabled enough to need someone else to help with routine activities of daily living because of chronic illness.” Long before we are visiting loved ones on their deathbed, we may be helping them cook, clean and use the bathroom.

    Truths About Death & Dying

    in Health

    As reported by the Associated Press, there is much misinformation, misconception and ignorance about end of life care and it is causing much harm.

    Judy Flickinger was a hospice nurse for the last twelve years of her forty-two

    year professional life as a registered nurse.  During this time she recognized that a healthy spirit could make the difference between a miserable death and a positive, meaningful end-of-life experience for both the patients and their loved ones.  Judy wrote

    Spirit Matters: How to Remain Fully Alive with a Life-Limiting Illness, to pass on what she learned.

    Join us as Judy tells us how she saw first hand the unnecessary suffering, not only with patients but also with their loved ones. Judy also talks about the billions of health care dollars wasted in the process.  Judy will educate, inspire and empower us about this important subject.

    Zen and the Art of Dying: The Film's Director Broderick Fox

    in Movies

    Broderick Fox’s award-winning narrative, experimental, and documentary works present challenging, socially relevant issues through accessible, character-driven storytelling and have screened in over 50 international festivals. Fox’s last feature documentary The Skin I’m In (2012) had its world premiere at the Byron Bay International Film Festival in Australia, where he met Zenith Virago. She was an audience member who approached him after the screening, and their shared sensibilities and interests precipitated an immediate connection, leading to Fox's latest documentary, Zen and the Art of Dying.  Zenith is an activist and educator who for over 20 years has been leading Australia towards a more communal, celebratory, and creative engagement with death and dying. From her origins as a young mother in the UK, to her present day identity as a lesbian, feminist, and self-described deathwalker in the idyllic seaside town of Byron Bay, Her Zenith’s personal and professional experiences quietly challenge our core assumptions about life and dissolve our taboos around death. More information on the film and the natural death care movement.

    Audio Blog#16: The Story Continues on Hospice, Assisted Living and Dying

    in Health

    This is the continuing story of my mother's passing.  In this episode I will talk about what happens after the death, the details like dealing with planning two memorials, social security, finances, wills and final bills.  I don't think a person is prepared for what has to be dealt with.  I want to provide some insight as to what it is like during this time, staying focused and getting the job done when you are feeling sad and vulnerable.
