How much does PTSD affect YOU? Like anything, it affects our entire society, directly or indirectly. Most people today are aware of PTSD, and some have gone beyond awareness to have knowledge about it, beyond that it stands for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Still, I have people sometimes say "what's that?". read more »
Nick Ortner states in the half hour video segment I watched with him and his sister, Jessica Ortner, at TheTappingSolution (thetappingsolution.com/2013VideoSeries/), that he hopes "tapping", or "Emotional Freedom Technique" becomes as well-known as "meditation" is today. From my vantage point, it will likely happen that EFT / Tapping becomes that well known. read more »

I was pleased to see on CNN this morning, that it is mediTation instead of mediCation -- or in addition to but with the potential to do medication changes -- for our veterans now, thanks to the David Lynch Foundation's program titled "Operation Warrior Wellness". read more »
"Voluntary Separation" from a Colorado University Program: His/Her-story is Familiar. But for the Grace of ... _____?
"Ironically", I received my 'usual' Alumni donation solicitation call from the Colorado State University Applied Human Sciences College on Friday. Honestly, it has creeped me out in the past that long-lost friends couldn't track my cell phone number down but my Alma mater, which I was not all that inclined to have any 'attachment to' after graduation as an occupational therapist in 1996, could. read more »
Today, Memorial Day 2012, at the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, DC, the leadership of our country lead us in finally, officially, saying 'welcome home' to the veterans who served in that long 'conflict', later offically deemed a 'war'. There were shades of grey initially with US "involvement", going back into the 1950s, but in January of 1962, US pilots started transporting the south Vietnamese troops, a major turning point which provides the 'starting point'. read more »
Here is a wonderful message I received after someone disclosed their history/'story' to me, and I requested putting it in the FMS Story forum. I hope you read it and find it as interesting and 'GRATE' as I do!
Sorry it has taken me a while to reply. I have been inundated and I wanted to give myself the time needed to understand what Lumigrate has to offer those of us who have, if lucky, received a diagnosis of FMS, CFS or related conditions and the many who fit the criteria but have gone undiagnosed. read more »
Hello my dawlinks! It's your Yenta, yet again. So nu (What's going on)? The weekend held some very interesting things, no? September 11th, everyone was asking 'where were you when 'it' happened?" "Have you been watching all the shows on TV?" "Did you pick up the newspaper, it's historic you know." Oy! It's enough all ready! read more »
Integrative Care and the GRATEness of Grand Junction, Colorado; Lumigrate's Bringing it to YOU, WITH You!
"Thank you for inviting me to Grand Junction. There is more promising and inspiring care related to integrated care here than anywhere in the nation." This was the first of MANY "note-worthy" things Dr Frank de Gruy of Denver's CU Med Center (University of Colorado) said last night. I will share the entire presentation with you in the near future here at Lumigrate because it is my 'responsibility' on many levels, including spiritually, to 'get the word out to to all who are represented in the model. read more »
Two months ago, my sister, her husband and I were joined by our friends and family to celebrate a life that had passed on Labor Day -- that of my father. It was a beautiful fall day in a chapel at the top of a mountain outside of Denver, Colorado with pine trees out the door and window and an interesting history of people collecting to come pay their respects. The pace and theme of the service had been kept very much like a music program because it was put together by music teachers (sister and her husband), with my more serious piece interjected which reflected what I do for a read more »
Today is Veterans' Day in the United States, and I am proud to say I have an appreciation of our military's veterans, perhaps from day one. My father served in World War II back when the Air Force was called the "Army Air Corps". I grew up always feeling cold, as my father did, and shuddered at the story of how cold north Africa was and likely felt more so to him because he was not given the thyroid medication he had needed from the time he was a teen. read more »
