    Temple Grandin - Parenting Kids with Autism

    in Family

    We are thrilled to welcome Temple Grandin back to our show. Our conversation will focus on what she feels best supported her success in life and the advice she has to offer for parents of children with autism.


    Arguably the most famous person in the autism community, Dr. Grandin has been advocating for individuals with autism for more than 30 years. In 2010, Grandin delivered the TED talk “The world needs all kinds of minds.” Grandin’s own experience with autism has informed her numerous books on the subject including My Life in Pictures which was adapted for the award-winning HBO film. 


    Born on August 29, 1947, in Boston, Massachusetts, Temple Grandin was diagnosed with autism as a child and went on to pursue work in psychology and animal science. She has become a leading advocate for autistic communities and has also written books and provided consultation on the humane treatment of animals. 


    Grandin has been recognized by the academic community and the general public for her work. In 2009, she was named a fellow of the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers. She is the recipient of several honorary degrees, and has been featured on a range of television and radio programs.


    In 2010, HBO released an Emmy Award winning film on Grandin’s life which continues to strike a chord with audiences.  Temple’s willingness to honestly share her challenges as well as share her passionate perspective with depth and resonance has made her a very popular (and busy) speaker and presenter.

    Through the Eye's of a Sibling; Autism Spectrum Disorder

    in Health

    The Two Trees is a poignant story that gives a glimpse into the difficulties of having a high-functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) child in the family. As told from a sibling perspective, it is both an exploration and celebration of brotherly love despite challenging circumstances, metaphorically reflected in the growth of two trees planted at the beginning of the story. The Two Trees is a must-read for all parents and kids, ASD families, educators, and anyone who has witnessed or felt the sting of being left out, bullied, or misunderstood. 


    Join me on The Keep It Moving Blog Talk Radio Show with special guest Sally Meadows, singer, song writer, author and more importantly a mother. Hear her experiences raising 2 boys and the story behind her new childrens book The Two Trees.

    Autism, Seeing the World From a Different Angle

    in Family

    Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and autism are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors. With the May 2013 publication of the DSM-5 diagnostic manual, all autism disorders were merged into one umbrella diagnosis of ASD. Previously, they were recognized as distinct subtypes, including autistic disorder, childhood disintegrative disorder, pervasive developmental disorder-not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS) and Asperger syndrome. 


    ASD can be associated with intellectual disability, difficulties in motor coordination and attention and physical health issues such as sleep and gastrointestinal disturbances. Some persons with ASD excel in visual skills, music, math and art.


    Autism appears to have its roots in very early brain development. However, the most obvious signs of autism and symptoms of autism tend to emerge between 2 and 3 years of age. Autism Speaks continues to fund research on effective methods for earlier diagnosis, as early intervention with proven behavioral therapies can improve outcomes. Increasing autism awareness is a key aspect of this work and one in which our families and volunteers play an invaluable role.


    Please Welcome our special guests who have taken the time out to tell their stories.

    Oxalates...Ask Your Questions!!!

    in Health

    On Monday, April 27, 2015 at 8 PM Eastern we will do a follow up on the very popular oxalate podcast. We have the honor of hosting Monique L. Attinger, the "Low Ox Coach"!.


    Monique works as a diet and health coach, to support those who want to heal using the low oxalate diet. She has recovered her own health by reducing her oxalate intake, and has been involved in the low oxalate world for over 6 years now. Monique brings to her work with clients all the skills she gained doing business consulting for 20 years, as well as her Master’s degree in Library and Information science, in combination with her curiosity and fervor for details; it is this which allows her to help people who want to get to the bottom of their health issues. While she has done some nutritionist studies, she has not completed them, because no program in current existence deals with oxalate, and so no program could not could give her more on oxalate than she already knew from submerging herself in the research, and interacting with those in the know. For the past three years, she has helped clients to regain their health through changing their diet. You can reach her at LowOxCoach@gmail.com


    Monique will give a short presentation (here's the link to the pdf: http://goo.gl/AXZI5Z) and then be available to answer your questions.


    Join us for this very special podcast and tell your friends!!!!   Dr. Jess   :-)

    #46: Keeping Your Lady Parts Healthy with Augustine Colebrook

    in Health

    Most of us don't get how important a healthy vagina is to health, fertility and particularly a healthy pregnancy. An unbalanced vaginal microbiome can lead to pre-term labor, the number one cause of infant mortality.  Studies show that preterm labor and inflammation during pregnancy can lead to wheezing in infants, higher rates of asthma and there's even an association with autism.  So it's important to consider the health of your vagina prior to pregnancy.  A healthy microbiome, whether in your vagina, your gut, your skin or anywhere on your body is critical to overall health and vitality.


    Midwife Augustine Colebrook, CPM, LM of Wise Women Care in Medford, Oregon is on the show sharing tips for how you can keep your vagina as healthy and balanced as possible.


    On this show you will learn:


    * Why the health of your vagina matters, before and during pregnancy and birth


    * What a vaginal microbiome is and how it impacts your fertility, pregnancy and health


    * Common vaginal complaints and how to treat them naturally and why antibiotics may not be the best course of treatment


    * Tips and tricks for keeping your vaginal microbiome happy, healthy and balanced


    * How to improve the microbiome of your infant if born by C-section
