The producers of Healthy Body, Healthy Mind are producing a series of one-hour health documentaries ready for your primetime schedule. They will come out one every other month throughout 2015.
In these special programs, physicians are interviewed who are working with their patients, and encouraging them to be more proactive in their overall health care while providing them with the tools and hope to have a healthier life!
Healthy bones and joints allow us to run, jump, play sports – even go for a walk. Our shoulders permit arm and hand movement. Our backs help support our entire body. And healthy feet allow mobility as we move from one place to another, on our own. But injury and disease can bring many of these functions to a halt. In Shoulders, Back, & Feet we will explore the areas of shoulder damage, cervical degenerative disc issues, and the debilitating affects that diabetes can have on our feet.
Shoulder damage can happen with age, or repetitive arm movement due to work or sporting activities. A disease called cervical dystonia can cause painful, involuntary muscle movement in the neck. Cervical degenerative disc disease can damage nerves in the neck area, resulting in tingling and weakness in the arms and shoulders. And type 2 diabetes can lead to issues of the feet called neuropathy. Untreated neuropathy can be the cause of debilitating foot ulcers that make mobility difficult and could lead to amputation in extreme cases.
All this and more in this very informative documentary.
I’ll Have It My Way with Hattie Bryant
“The medicalization of American life from birth to death is killing our souls.”
– Hattie Bryant
As much as we all want to believe we can live forever, we all know deep down that it simply can’t be true.
From this program viewers learn that there are things each of us can do to live fully, all the way to the end. Anyone who is willing to take four simple steps now, while healthy, can minimize if not avoid entirely, the pain, suffering, confusion and disagreements that can arise when end-of-life healthcare wishes are not clearly spelled out.
Americans need this information because 70% say they want to die peacefully surrounded by friends and family … while actually 70% are dying in institutions surrounded by strangers.
Few people choose to contemplate critical illness or the inevitability of death until their time comes. Because possibilities are rarely discussed, many people are unprepared or unable to make critical end-of-life decisions and spend their last days in over-medicalized and unnecessarily painful and protracted situations.
Breaking through the taboo of discussing death, Hattie Bryant shows that we have choices.
