    in Education

    Join me, Michael W Idell this Friday February 5th at 5:30 p.m. till 6:50 p.m. Pacific time ( that's 8:30 p.m. till 9:50 p.m. Eastern Time ) on Brain Injury Radio Network as your host.


    The topic of the week is "Let's Stop the Labels".


    People with disabilities should be looked at by their abilities not what they're incapable of doing. There needs to be a stop with degradation segregation stereotypes and no one deserves to be pitied.


    Many people with disabilities have more drive, initiative, and motivation more than most "normal" lazy people do without a disability.


    Please call into our radio show  at 424-243-9540. The show is recorded for FCC purposes. Please share with your groups and friends.

    in Motivation

    YAWN! After a brain injury you get a little sleepy. I know I slept alot. There were days when I had no clue what day it was. My sleeping patterns changed as the healing process began. Many times I stayed awake and in silence.


    Let's talk about getting some sleep. And if you do not sleep what do you do?

    Another Fork in the Road: Ann Boriskie - Director of Brain Injury Peer Visitor

    in Education

    Ann Boriskie, a TBI survivor of more than 17-years says, “Get involved. Volunteer.” “By helping others with a brain injury, you truly help yourself in so many ways.” Ann is the Brain Injury Peer Visitor Association Director and her motto is “YOU CAN!”


     


    Every TBI survivor and caregiver has encountered a fork in the road that has diverted his or her life-plan. A car accident, a fall from the roof, doing one more chin-up, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College plans, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slip from reality as dreams turn to struggle. These unexpected life-happenings that divert one from his or her chosen path in life can be devastating. But as Yogi Berra once said, "If you come to a fork in the road, take it." Life is all about choices!

    Brain Injury Radio Show with Michael Idell - Positive Motivation

    in Education

    Positive motivation has an impact on everyone involved with family members, caregivers and those involved with neurological impairments.



    Recovery processes have an undoubtable negative impact on invidividuals without a positive influence involved.

    A positive perception assists everyone through coping strategies including the initial impact on the news, the struggles involved, and the accomplishments made.

    Families and caregivers need to have somewhere to go to when they have their struggles like giving up their lives, paying bills, making time for another life, and the responbilities which ensue.


    Then most importantly is teamwork! ANYONE INVOLVED NEEDS TO LISTEN, LEARN, AND COMMUNICATE!

    This is why we (ASBISG.org) have conference calls and meetings for caregivers. All of the attention isnt focused on just the survivors lives. Caregivers and family members understanding, communication, love and affection have an enormous affect on the brain injured. We are all a product of our environment. The community needs to help one another and help each other through the good times and bad.

    Why my patients are Experiencing Ascension Symptoms (like weight gain)

    in Spirituality

    Woo Hoo! You have been doing your "personal work" and you can feel your consciousness expanding, you have raised your vibrational frequencies, but you are noticing some not so ideal physical symptoms like weight gain, headaches, mood swings, body temperature changes and more.


    For anyone doing any form of healing (especially energy healing, and working within the spiritual realm, this is an important interview for you. Join me as I interview Crystal Anne Comptom as we talk about common Ascension symptoms and how they are showing up for you. 


    1. What is "Ascension" anyway and why are we going through it?


    2. What are common physical symptoms of ascension?


    3. How can we increase our frequency without suffering from symptoms (in my case weight gain)?


    4. How does alcohol, sugar and drugs affect our vibration? (if we are ascended shouldn't it be that we can tolerate everything because anything low vibe gets transmutated to high vibe just by being in contact with us?)


    5. Humans have subsisted for millions of years on a paleolithic diet before the advent of agriculture and were healthier then. How is it that our ascension could call for more vegetarian diets? Won't we be missing the Omega 3's, saturated fats (required for adrenal health), cholesterol (required for hormone production) as meat is the most nutrient dense food on the planet?
