    Talk with Tenney: Special Electroshock: Cognitive Impairments and Rehabilitation

    in Current Events

    Call in (267)521-0167 9-11 PM Eastern 9/30/2015 to be part of the special series on electroshock is a crime against humanity continues.


    Loretta Wilson, Jane Rice, and other shock survivors will discuss cognitive impairment and rehabilitation after shock.


    From Loretta Wilson:


    In the year 2000 I was informed by the psychiatrist/professor of Michigan State University Dale D`Mello that I would need maintenance ECT and psych meds for the remainder of my life.


    The last electroshock was administered by D. D`Mello in/around September of 2000.


    In 2007 I began to taper off the drugs as well.  I began to lose weight (good thing because I tipped the scales at 261 lbs) and started getting healthier.  By 2009 I no longer needed my cane or handicap parking permit.


    One drug kept me working for 8 long years.  Klonopin had so affected me it took 8 years to finally be set free.  My goal to become "drug free" has become a reality this year.  I have been drug free for quite some time now.  My physical health also improved to the point I am no longer taking medications for anything except a small dose of thyroid hormone.

    Heart Health and Cardiac Rehabilitation

    in Health

    February 11, 2015: February is American Heart Month. Each year in the U.S., 1 in 4 deaths are caused by heart disease, making it the leading cause of death for American men and women. 


    Also, approximately 720,000 Americans will have a heart attack each year – an alarming number that sadly isn’t surprising when one considers that almost half of Americans have at least one of the three key risk factors for heart disease: smoking, high blood pressure, or high LDL cholesterol.


    In this episode a physical therapist outlines the signs of a heart attack, the risk behaviors for heart disease, and the healthy behaviors necessary to avoid heart disease. She also explains the cardiac rehabilitation process that awaits patients who are treated for a heart attack.

    Dolphin Rescue, Rehabilitation and Release

    in Environment

    Adam Roberts ‘The Compassionate Conservationist’, CEO of Born Free USA & Born Free Foundation talks with Big Blend Radio hosts Nancy J. Reid & Lisa D. Smith, about how Born Free successfully rescued, rehabilitated and released two bottlenose dolphins back into the wild. The dolphins, Tom and Misha, were originally captured from the wild off the coast of Turkey, and were used to perform and provide ‘swim-with’ opportunities for tourists in captive facilities. Tom and Misha were rescued from their tiny concrete tank where they had been languishing in filthy water and going downhill fast. Over a period of 20 months of rehabilitation, they were transformed into the sleek, efficient marine mammals that nature intended.

    This interview originally aired on June 17, 2015, as part of Big Blend Radio's Happy Hour variety show that broadcasted live from the historic Coronado Motor Hotel in Yuma, Arizona.

    CRARN is a charity group with headquarters in Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria and a registered charity in the United States of America.

The killings were a re-enactment of the “Inquisition” and the “Salem witch trials.” The killings were organized by different groups of irate and unemployed youths who formed themselves into different cult groups carrying out what they called “witch cleansing” with the backing of some influential politicians and religious leaders. No fewer than 600 people were killed within a space of two months, while thousands fled their homes.

    DRUG REHABILITATION & DIVINE INTERVENTION

    in Politics

    So what happens when you finally admit to yourself that you have a drug addiction problem? For many individuals the situation becomes critical and often times can result in unfortunate situations such as being ostracized by their families and friends. In many cases the drug addict chooses suicide as a way to escape the addiction cycle and in many other cases, death through disease and or incarceration if the individual does not seek the professional guidance from a drug rehabilitation center and of course .... a little help from the Man upstairs in the form of Divine Intervention....


    Drug rehabilitation (often drug rehab or just rehab) is a term for the processes of medical or psychotherapeutic treatment, for dependency on psychoactive substances such as alcohol, prescription drugs, and street drugs such as cocaine, heroin or amphetamines. The general intent is to enable the patient to cease substance abuse, in order to avoid the psychological, legal, financial, social, and physical consequences that can be caused, especially by extreme abuse. Treatment includes medication for depression or other disorders, counseling by experts and sharing of experience with other addicts. Some rehab centers include meditation and spiritual wisdom in the treatment process.


    Join Carlos Montenegro to discuss the “pros & cons” of Drug Rehabilitation centers vs. Spirituality & Divine Intervention.
