ADHD: A New Brain for a New Age

Listen to the Show here: ADHD – A new Mind for A New World

August 1, 2011
Guest: Cheryl Healey
Guest Website: The Gift of You

About the Show:
Why are so many sensitive children given a label of ADHD?  Why do the numbers keep increasing?  What can you as a parent do to help your child avoid this label and treat or avoid symptoms naturally?  Learn the big, complex picture of ADHD and how you can help these children whether you are a parent or a concerned individual.  The time is now to turn the tide for these kids.  The children will be glad you did and so will you!

Change Thrivers Tip by Cheryl Healy:
Sensitive children including ADHD and ADD kids have a higher sensory perception than norm. The can multi-task naturally and process more information which is suited to the exponentially increasing amount of information they are bombarded with.

Symptoms are mostly physical and usually a reaction to some kind of allergy. Allergies are extremely common in sensitive and ADHD children. They could be allergic to variety of things such as food preservatives, cleaning products, other chemicals and toxins.

You might like to check your children for three things:

  1. Food Allergies
  2. Leaky gut – a name used to describe intestinal or bowel hyperpermeability. Increased intestinal permeability begins with inflammation and irritation to the lining of the digestive tract. Over time, the intestinal lining begins to wear and break down. This forms large gaps between your intestinal cells which then allow toxins, pathogens, and undigested food particles to enter your bloodstream.
  3. Toxins

How to Help Your Preschoolers Manage Stress!

Change Thrivers Radio show

Listen to the Show here: How to Help Your Preschooler Manage Stress
June 6, 2011
Guest: Dr. Mo Pertik
Dr. Mo’s Website: Dr. Mo Pertik

Change Thrivers Tip by Dr. Mo:
First know how you are feeling before dealing with your children’s emotion.
Use the GBS System

  • Goal  Selection (Stress Management) – To have a well-adjusted child that knows options and how to control and manage stress.
  • Breading (Breath Awareness) – Taking in a moment to pause, taking in a breath, keeping that goal in mind, breathing in and breathing out. You can do this with your children. In a tough situation when they can’t  manage, you can use bubbles or balloons.
  • Shift Gears – (Make a choice) Be aware of feelings, making a positive choice in terms of how you look at a situation. “I hear and I forget, I see and remember, I do and I understand. Talk about feelings, share problem solving skills, share enjoyable activities, singing, rhyming, playing and something that is very important, doing nothing.

About the Show:
We don’t often think of preschoolers as being stressed. After all isn’t stress a grown up thing? Dr. Maria Pertik RN, PhD known fondly as “Dr. Mo” says there are many situations that can stress your small children. In this program Afsaneh Noori will ask Dr. Mo to share what can stress children, how stress shows up in a child and the solutions she can offer our listeners. Dr. Mo is the author of “Stress Management and ME” which explains the art of teaching kids stress management and positive health.

About Dr. Mo: 
Dr. Mo certainly has one of the most interesting and diverse resumes and interest5s. She has both a medical and psychological background. Not only is she a Registered Nurse, but she also has a Masters degree in Holistic Health and a Doctorate in Psychology. She is the author of many international publications, including Stress Management and ME offered in several countries. The Peace Corps in Ecuador are currently using it.  This book is a time tested a self-help book for young children on how to manage stress. Her latest book which she plans on being a best seller is: Shaking Hands With Alzheimer’s Disease a Guide for Compassion, Seven Steps for Compassionate Care giving. 

Dr. Mo is a world traveler and teacher. In the last twelve months she has been studying and teaching in India and Ecuador, spending time in Dharmasala where the Dalai Lama resides.  She also has been a volunteer in Haiti, and the barrios of Santa Domingo, Ecuador. As a hobby Dr. Mo likes to be an extra in movies.  My favorites that I was an extra in were EAT PRAY LOVE, and ADJUSTMENT BUREAU.  “ I find film to be fascinating, and it is true, all the world is a stage”. 

Dr. Mo says, “I have been passionate about why some people can survive immense trauma, and flourish while others self impose struggle for their entire lives. I have found that the way people manage stress is THE tipping point.” She can be reached at her website: Dr. Mo

Delicately Dealing with Difficult People

Listen to the Show here: Dealing Delicately with Difficult People
May 2011
Guest: Monica Wafford
Monica’s Website: Monica Wafford Companies

Change Thrivers Tip by Monica:

In any communication scenario, the more you can be authentic, be honest, be clear and be kind, the more effective your communication will be. When we communicate that way, we find that people will respond in similar way. The communication dialogue flows as opposed to being stalled.

The authenticity is key because it shows who you really are. The honesty is key because you talk about what your need really is. The clarity is key because it fosters understanding. And the kindness is important because there is so much stress, so much negativity and so much difficulty in the world which we live that is easy to fuel a reactionary pattern for most of us. When people expect you to be less than kind, a simple kind word can elevate the level of understanding and communication to a platform that maybe you didn’t expect but are glad to receive.

Write Down Your Soul to Activate the Voice Within

Listen to the Show here: Write Down Your Soul to Activate the Voice Within
May 16, 2011
Guest: Janet Connor

Change Thrivers Tips By Janet Connor:

  1. Give yourself the gift of STOP. The one gift we can all give ourselves is the gift of time. It can be just a few minutes, but for those five or ten minutes, get off the go-go train we ride all day and just be still. Deep soul write or meditate or just sit and breathe. Allow. Allow your inner knowing, that wise loving Voice, to speak to you. In the silence, you will find your way.
  2. Pick up a pen. Don’t wait until you’ve finished reading Writing Down Your Soul. Take a breath, set your intention, address the Voice by name and begin.  It’s a life-long conversation. You can start it today whether you know all the ins and outs or not. Release any expectations of what it “ought” to be like. Just begin. You’ll find the Voice is a loving, gentle presence and is oh so happy you’ve come to talk.
  3. Ask for guidance. Ask for guidance on the page in your deep soul writing, in your mind, in your prayers, as you’re falling asleep. All day and night long, ask for help. Help will come. It may come in forms you didn’t expect, but it will come.
  4. Pay attention. Everyone has innate spiritual intelligence, we just don’t use it. By starting to become aware of your spiritual intelligence, you strengthen and expand it, just like a muscle used in exercise. How do you exercise your spiritual intelligence? Pay attention to your intuition, your gut feelings, your emotions, synchronicities, books and messages that come your way, invitations, dreams…. There is no end to the ways guidance works with us once we begin to pay attention.
  5. Maximize your natural time in theta. As we awaken from sleep each and every one of us moves through the theta brain wave state—the only state in which we have access to break through thinking and true creativity. So use it. In the morning, lie perfectly still, don’t open your eyes. Just lie there and allow information and ideas to flow to you. Train yourself to lie still for longer and longer periods of time. Any question can be solved just resting in theta.
  6. Go on a media diet. Especially if you are in a fearful state right now or prone to pick up other people’s fear. The media and our political systems are designed to keep us afraid so we’ll turn to them to tell us how to stay safe. Fear is the absolute worst thing for your soul. Your soul is not naturally fearful. It is not afraid of life; it chose life. So help yourself by stepping away from the waves of things to be afraid of coming over the TV and internet and radio. If you can’t limit all TV, at least don’t watch any news before bed.
  7. Eat lots of “soul food.” In place of your media diet, feed your soul with lots of rich spiritual books and practices. Listen to loving uplifting messages. Read mystical poetry. Write down your soul. Pray. Sit in nature. Be still and know that you are loved.
