    Increased Alcoholism Rates Post Gastric Bypass Surgery

    in Lifestyle

    In 2012 a study was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association that reports the percentage of patients abusing alcohol increased from 7.6% to 9.6% two years after gastric bypass surgery - potentially creating 2,000 alcoholics every year in the US.


    There is more than one theory on why this occurs.  Some say it is addiction transfer: a patient switches an addiction to food to an addiction to alcohol.  More recent evidence suggests an anatomical explanation - metabolic and hormonal changes triggered by gastric bypass surgery that leave patients especially vulnerable to alcoholism.  Maybe it is both - or neither?  The truth is nobody is 100% sure of why alcoholism rates increase post surgery.


    If you are struggling with alcoholism post-surgery, however, the reason why may not be as relevant as what to do about it.  There are unique challenges that face people whose alcoholism may be attributed to gastric bypass surgery, and on this episode of the Bubble Hour we will discuss this startling trend.  We will share more information about why experts feel this increased vulnerability to alcoholism occurs, and speak with special guest Jessica about her own experience with gastric bypass surgery, alcoholism and recovery.


    We are also excited to welcome Diane Grimaldi, DNP, PMHCS, BC as a guest on the show and an expert on this issue.


    Diane started her psychotherapy practice in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1984 after receiving her Masters Degree in Adult Mental Health Nursing from Boston College and becoming a board certified Clinical Specialist in Psychiatric Nursing. 


    In 2014 she received a Doctorate in Nursing Practice from the University of Massachusetts, Lowell.  For more information about Diane and her practice please visit www.grimaldicounseling.com.

    The Road to RECOVERY...hosted bby Daniel Czuba...WOW WHAT A SHOW TONIGHT!

    in Business

    Hey Folks, if you didn't tune in to tonights show-you missed another great opportunity to learn about RECOVERY through the Candid-Open & sincerely HONEST sharing of one of our listeners-calling in to share Her Experience, Strength & Hope. WOW! She demonstrated Strength, Courage, & Compassion, while helping herself to grow within herself. What a Miracle! AND YOU & "I" Got to be Present during the entire time. How waaay cool as well! You see people - this is NOT a scripted program & not one where you need to say or do anything other than to BE YOURSELVES.


    My/our attempt by hosting this show is to continue helping people to find RECOVERY from ANY Addiction that you may be facing. I/We want to help ERASE the Stigma oftentimes associates with Recovery. Through Recovery we have come to find Ourselves-once lost within our minds-captured and being held captive by our active Addictions, which would tell us that we were NO GOOD or TOO GOOD or WE DIDN'T BELONG, etc... you get the picture. We became LONERS and Isolationists to our detriment & that of those loved ones around us as well.

    STOP!! There is an answer, & YES "HE" is "MY" HIgher Power, whom I choose to call Jesus Christ,GOD. NOW you don't need to find MY God - however I/we will encourage you to find a relationship with a God of your own choosing. In fact we encourage you to find yourself, forgive yourself, & become the friend & aide to others who have struggled along the same paths as you & I. We ARE NOT Doctors of Counselors, or psychologists, you get the picture. We are like you, human beings who may have lost our way due to any various distractions put forth in this world. We offer you HOPE & a Hand to grow in Recovery. Join us Sundays 7 to 9 PM CST. Call-in 323-580-5755

    THE MEDICINE WOMBMAN

    in Health

                                                                The Medicine Wombman:


    Will give the listeners a chance to learn more about natural healing and medicine for the mind, body and soul/spirit. This includes Metaphysics too, which is the Gate way to our healing on a spiritual level and cosmically speaking. I will have guests that specialize in natural healing, medicine and knowledge on metaphysics. The true history of our Race will also be presented on “The Medicine Woman Program”, being that most black people are not taught the truth about our history which leads to mental sickness etc…these areas need to be talked about to start the healing process.


    I am fully aware I can’t save the world, but I can try to save those who want to be saved. Initiative Radio Network, is the outlet for me to make this a reality of “Action Speaks Louder than Words”.


    I also did a lot of studying and research on Natural Medicine and its healing Medicinal Properties. I attended schools such as Massage Therapy, Reiki Level 1, Ni and Chi Gong, I also practice Chakra Healing and Chakra Tonics. I currently have an herbal business called Fresh & Organic Florida Leaf; I sell 6 different leaves used for Medicine and healing diseases.


    Hope all the Beautiful listeners tune in every Sunday from 8pm-10pm and find your Pathway to Natural Healing BLESSED LOVE AND MORE LIGHT

    Setting Rules and Boundaries


    Our guest tonight Deborah L. Tillman is Parent Educator, Speaker, Author, Founder and CEO of Happy Home Child Learning Centers, Inc., located in Northern Virginia and “America’s Supernanny” on Lifetime Television.  


    Labeled “A Force for Good” by the Washington Post, Tillman has a deep passion for children.  Her mission is to transform parents and encourage them to be the best they can be.  Tillman believes that “schools and educator’s should not have to do for children what we as parents were created to do”.  Tillman says, “It is not about making a child; it is about raising a child”.  Deborah L. Tillman is America’s most authentic and powerful voice for parents and is not afraid to be open and honest with them.  Her no nonsense yet, loving approach landed her the role as “America’s Supernanny” on Lifetime Television.  Tillman holds a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Special Education from George Washington University and is currently seeking her Doctorate.  She began her career over a decade ago when she became frustrated with the lack of quality childcare her son was receiving. So she quit her very lucrative accounting job and started her own school in 1994.  


    Deborah Tillman has been a recurring Parenting guest on the Steve Harvey Television show.  She has also been seen on the View, Today Show, Katie Show, Home and Family Network, Wendy Williams and CNN to name a few.  Tillman has also been featured in Essence Magazine, Jet, Ebony, Northern Virginia, Washington Woman and Parent Magazines.  Tillman has contributed articles to Gospel Today and Jet and Ebony magazines.
