It is unequivocally important to be healthy and to possess an overall sense of well- being so that you are genuinely able to lead a more productive, happier life.”

  • CUTV News Radio spotlights Ayurvedic Practitioner Ceci Kramer

    in Health

    Centennial, CO — Ceci Kramer is an advanced Ayurvedic practitioner. Ayurveda is a traditional East Indian medicine, estimated to be over 5,000 years old, transmitted through the oral tradition for even longer than that.
    “Where Western medicine treats illness and symptoms, Ayurvedic practices prevent you from getting sick in the first place,” says Kramer.
    Ayurveda is one of the three sister sciences: Yoga, the physical and spiritual aspect; Jyotisha, the Indian form of astrology; Ayurveda is the medicinal part of the sister sciences which they use to base their theory of health on. Ayruveda drawing on different herbs to create different medicines for different ailments or problems.
    “I've had a lot of my own health struggles, specifically things that were very difficult for Western medicine to diagnose and treat, which is often the case with people who come to Ayurveda: they can't find answers in Western medicine,” says Kramer.
    The most common form of treatment would be probably herbal formulations to help a person's immune system fight illness without side effects or chemicals. These formulations can be teas, tinctures, oils, and herbal powder formulas. By focusing on lifestyle, diet and the herbal medications, Ceci can offer a well-rounded treatment plan for anyone looking to change the way they're living and re-balance themselves.
    According to Kramer, integrating the western and eastern traditions of medicine would be the ideal and there are more and more physicians who see the validity of preventative medicine and the value of what Ayurveda has to offer.

  • Staci Cushenberry—Aging out of NY

    in Health

    I’m Staci Cushenbery, formally Nicholas and am 34 years old. My husband and I live in Harper, KS with our 4 kiddos and several dogs. Together we own a trucking business in the oil field and I also am a LuLaRoe retailer. On top of my super busy life I try to advocate for HD as often as anyone will let me. My first experience with HD was when my mom tested positive. From there on I’ve wanted to be as active as possible despite having no local resources. I was one of the founding members of the NYA where I served on the board for many years and headed the Silent Auction. My very first experience with the HD convention was a support group, from there my love for helping others was created. I have a degree in Psychology and a Masters in Social Work. Facilitating groups, helping children, and HD families is my passion. Most recently, I’ve joined up with others who have reached the age of 30+ and felt lost without the support they’d known to grow and love. We came up with the HDYAC, where my role will be limited but definitely be support based for others and I’m super excited where this next adventure with my HD family will take me! Lastly, I’ve participated in research for over a decade and truly believe that we will be the last generation to live with HD.

  • When one thinks of cancer, DISEASE is automatically and incorrectly associated

    in Health

    Let us start looking at cancer as something different than a negative health condition. Instead, cancer can be viewed as an injury or malfunction caused by an externally induced event, or what poor choices you make.
    Maybe looking at cancer as a condition caused by something outside of us rather than from within us, is a good mindset to keep a healthy perspective, and to stay out of fear, for choice matters.
    Mainstream oncology prefers to keep people believing that cancer is a disease and that drugs are the only treatment option. And the scam companies keep advertising that you should donate to them for they are finding the CURE of Cancer, which is a complete lie; you don’t cure a symptom. Tune in Wednesday at 7PM   FOR THE REST OF THE STORY

Dr. Jamie gets to the root of the issue and it is not in drugs, surgeries or shots!
    Dr. Koufman is the world's authority on reflux; but what really is reflux? How can a child or baby recognize acid reflux or see the repercussions that develop into respiratory reflux?
    Can you correct all the childhood health concerns by just changing the child's diet? Why did no one ever say this before? Do I have to make significant changes to taking care of my kids?
    Virtually everyone is sick these days. Why are we having so much resistance to changing the diet of our children these days when Dr. Koufman shares that it is the first step to enhancing your child's health?
    Has your physician ever suggested that your gut has an issue first before doing surgeries or giving drastic medications to solve acute or chronic symptoms?
    Perhaps it is time for a change, permanently!

  • Phoenix Fitness Owner Royce Claflin talks Powerlifting & Fitness

    in Nutrition

    Royce L. Claflin, owner of Phoenix Fitness in Dover, NH and creator of Barbell Athlete Ranking system (B.A.R.S.) was formally educated in business management. His obsession with strength training lead him to educate himself immensely in health and exercise. Furthering his education through numerous certifications and seminars and keeping up on the latest research and trends is vital to Royce and his coaching. He has a very particular set of skills you will not find anywhere else; Royce has experienced the worst cases injuries (ironically, outside of the weight room); these injuries include a spinal fusion, hip surgery and shoulder reconstruction. This experience has provided invaluable skills for developing his athletes and their education. Having extensive experience in different styles of strength training, from Bodybuilding, to standard linear progression, to the cube method, to Shieko, to Conjugate he has the ability to take clients from a novice lifter to a competitive athlete to a professional. What makes his story interesting, is how far He has came in his journey. His odds of being a competitive power lifter were certainly against him, graduating from from High School at 120lbs, 5’8”, 6’3” wingspan with a 80lb max bench press, pretty much drove him to exceed expectations and persevere through shortfalls and struggles . His lifting partners were piling chains and bands on the bars a long time ago before it was popular, and most of the time it was because of Royce’s crazy ideas leading the workouts. Royce built his bench press up to 365 lbs in 10 years, and again a second time after having both shoulders repaired. He deadlifted triple bodyweight with a dislocated spine, and squatted 4x/week under the same condition.
