It can be as simple as that, but as frustrating. When you have events, friend activities and of course work; It can ruin your day and maybe the day after that. But anything can do that. It's how you see it that is important. So that is where I come in. NURSE COACHING The nurse coach partners with the client seeing them, that's you, as the expert in their needs. The nurse coach bring tools to the table and asks questions to allow the client to see their inner wisdom. The indiv
by Ann Cowper It's hard to think of the last time I was courageous because it is an ongoing occurrence these days in times of COVID. Courage is a muscle that I work to strengthen everyday. My latest lesson in courage is the humility to ask for help. As a child, running through the woods was an escape. In addition, as the oldest, I felt responsible for the others. Then I became a nurse on my feet 12 hours at a time and sometimes more, always helping and taking care of others.
Often people think they have to address an illness or symptom when in fact it's the other areas of their lives or themselves that need attention. Leading with the Resilience Paradigm, my healthcare advocacy explores thoughts, feelings, and relationships. My interest includes young people, moms, caregivers, and nurses. I am considered the wise woman who allows young people to understand that they have insight and they know what they need: Guidance, boundaries, and encouragemen
I sent this letter to MWM Magazine, which reminds us to stay calm, stay out of fear, and be in the current moment: Hello Mary: As a former Maine resident and searching for “what happened with Christine Northrup” I came across your letter in MWM which seems very healing and I thank you. I am a holistic nurse and I have been concerned about the direction that Dr. Northrup's information to the public has taken. In this huge transitional time we can get caught up in the tornado
"The authors report that during this 5-month period, a total of 1 336 561 deaths occurred in the US, an estimated 20% increase compared with the number of expected deaths, and representing 225 530 excess deaths.2Approximately 67% of these excess deaths were attributable directly to COVID-19, whereas excess deaths attributed to other causes also could have been related to the pandemic in general." 1.Woolf SH , Chapman DA , Sabo RT , et al. Excess deaths from COVID-19 a
I am visiting mom to help out during this hard time. We are missing the surfers (she lives on the beach-I know, how fortunate). They are reminders that life will go on and the kids will help us as we move forward. They are strong and healthy and they have their community. I understand the issues of contamination and I have been following the science on this since Dr. Fauci spoke back in January regarding the potential spread and isolation of the virus. I hope to see the surfe
I was trying to avoid writing about the new illness but the more I hear confusion and misinformation, and people are asking me: "What's your take?" I feel I must respond. I am a nurse who receives daily notices from reliable medical resources made for health professionals and someone who was just coming out of nursing school at the University of Florida when the AIDS Crisis hit. This strain of coronavirus came about when, it is believed, a meat market in China transferred thi
I recently completed a podcast on Insiders Guide to Health and Wellness about the common cold. A good way to avoid getting a cold, virus, or flu is by alkalizing your body. In that discussion I tell people that stress can acidify the body as can sugar. Some of the supplements I refer to are CMD mineral drops, Atomidine (always use with doctors advice because it contains iodine) is used in very small amounts when used. I like PURE Vitamin C powder and Shaklee slow release vita
the Buddhist practice of vipassana meditation- to increase insight by becoming a detached observer of your thoughts, feelings, drives, and vision. No thought is considered an intrusion. (Kutz et al., 1985, Psychotherapy and psychosomatics). So you try to meditate and the most common concern is that you cannot clear your mind right?? Well this is sooo common and believe me after a while it does get easier maybe after months depending on how often you practice. But don't worry!
The health care industry’s shift from “sick care” to “well care” will reach its tipping point – no longer presenting itself as the industry ideal, but the norm. We learned that health care providers involved in outcomes-based care are more likely to understand what their patients want and need from their primary care physician. We also learned that physicians believe “well care” has a high impact on areas that patients ranked most valuable – including understanding test resul
