    Aphasia : Understanding Neuroplasticity and Language Treatments

    in Health

    June is Aphasia Awareness Month
    Aphasia is an acquired communication disorder that impairs the ability to speak and understand others, and often includes difficulty reading and writing, but does not affect intelligence. According to the National Aphasia Association, aphasia affects about one million Americans, both young and old, and is more common than Parkinson's disease, cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy, yet, most people have never heard of it. Improvement in language is a slow process that usually involves both helping the individual and family understand the nature of aphasia.
    Research advances are helping us to understand the role of neuroplasticity , the ability of the brain to  reorganize itself by forming new neural connections throughout life, and are leading to improved medical and therapeutic treatments.
    Please join my guests:  Ellayne S. Ganzfried, M.S., CCC-SLP, a speech-language pathologist and the Executive Director of the National Aphasia Association, and Swathi  Kiran, PhD,CCC-SLP, a professor at Sargent College of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences at Boston University, Research Director at the Aphasia resource Center, and a World-Renowned Expert in Rehabilitation After Stroke.
    The National Aphasia Association (NAA) is a nonprofit organization that promotes public education, research, rehabilitation and support services to assist people with aphasia and their families.

    Ban GMO’s and Drugs to keep Hippocrates from turning in his grave

    in Health

    This wise saying is attributed to the Greek physician Hippocrates, considered the father of Western medicine. He used liquid whey-strained off when making cheese-to help his patients build muscle and strengthen their immune systems.
    Natural Mother Nature healed people thousands of years before man produced drugs to attempt to achieve what Mother Nature already had achieved. Plus, Mother Nature kills no-one and man-made drugs kill hundreds of thousands of people each year, even when taken a prescribed.
    Now we have Genetically Modified Foods, which are man-made Frankenstein Foods that are even banded in other countries. But the good old United States government regulators who make billions from Big Food manufacturers and Big Pharma, who are one in the same in our view, who have been given the pass to produce whatever they wish and kill whomever they kill, and it will be legal. Tune in for The Rest of The Story at 7:30PM est

    FDA implies the health safety-Buck-does not stop with them!

    in Health

    Any study that the Soda industry funds and creates the outcome, no matter how damaging to the person's health, it creates media buzz and splashy headlines where the words "science," "study," and "proven weight loss" are favorably combined, and that is worth more than anything a PR firm might cook up; misuse of science to further a preconceived commercial agenda is the norm for today's big food and manmade drink industry; supported by the FDA.
    Always follow the money to determine the factual content of any study and find out who paid for the research, which is miraculously slanted to the favor of those who financed it.

    Suffering in Silence - The Stigma Associated with Chronic Disease

    in Health

    So many people suffer with chronic illness and do so silently.  That may seem strange to you if you’re healthy but there is a stigma surrounding chronic illness’s such as Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Epstein Barr Virus, Lyme Disease and hell I’m even going throw in Menopause. The stigma comes in when the disease/illness isn’t obvious.  Our society associates illness with runny noses, broken bones and trauma; things we can see.  However the illnesses I just mentioned don’t necessarily have visual effects, it’s not obvious that the person is suffering yet suffering they are I can assure you. But what about the people who say, “You don’t look sick. You’re probably doing it for attention”
    I’m joined by two very brave ladies of our community, Ms Toxic Goddess and Miss Taphophile both of whom are suffering from one or more of these illnesses.  Why do I say they’re brave? Because of the stigma I just mentioned but lets add another element to this. Both of these ladies are Dominatrixes. How can you be strong and confident when you feel like crap?  And doesn’t that make them less effective?  Are they less of a Domme if they aren’t feeling strong?  Unfortunately there are people who would say if you’re sick you suck.

    in Health

    August 15, 2014: Hit by a car while riding his bike at the of 14, Tim Haitz was critically injured, spending days in a coma, weeks in the Intensive Care Unit, and months in traction.  He didn't stand and bare weight for almost 10 months after his accident.
    After the accident, his life as he knew it had changed. Never properly rehabilitating his injuries, he went on to live a life of dysfunction and pain. It wasn't until his late 30's when he began to work with a physical therapist that his life would change course yet again, but for the better. He overcame his disabilities to become a professional cyclist, and was so inspired the impact of his physical therapist, he returned to school to become a physical therapist.

    The Erin Chamerlik Show!
    Hosted by The Real Food Revivalist, Erin Chamerlik
    Get Better Wellness, Inc.
    Gurnee, IL
    July, 2014 ... Brentwood, TN
    As the Real Food Revivalist, I believe that many of the "modern" diseases of our society are the result of factors that we can influence or control. On this show we talk about real food for real life. How to make changes that matter. It is time to get back to an ancestral way of eating and stop taking our nutrition advice from those who are not science-based. 
    I recommend plant-based, paleo/primal eating  for most people and explain the benefits of restricting grains and increasing natural fat, healthy animal protein and nutrient-dense vegetables, fruit, seeds and nuts.
    One-on-one consultations provided local and long distance, in person or via the telephone or internet.
    I specialize in helping people get to the root cause of their health concerns.
    I use Real Food nutrition and quality supplementation to help improve chronic conditions including overweight, type II diabetes, high blood pressure, PCOS, skin conditions, pain, GERD, brain fog, migraines, fatigue, fibromyalgia, depression, autoimmune conditions and more.
    My plan will help you uncover hidden food sensitivities, detect candida overgrowth, dysbiosis, and leaky gut. You will have a solid plan to heal your digestive tract and restore health and vitality.
    Guidance in eating Paleo, Primal, Low Carb, LCHF, Mediterranean, and other Real Food plans.
    Community education, classes and workshops, corporate education, and seminars.
