I will be speaking with Dr. Richard Schulman today, about trauma. The entire month of July is dedicated to mental health on The Doctor Whisperer Facebook/Podcast show. He is part of the incredible team at Alternative Psychiatry and brings incredible value to all of his patients. Trauma defined below ...according to Psychology Today ... ‘Traumatic experiences often arouse strong, disturbing feelings that may or may not abate on their own. In the immediate aftermath of a traumatic event, it is common to experience shock or denial. A person may undergo a range of emotional reactions, such as fear, anger, guilt, and shame. Feelings of helplessness and vulnerability are also common. Some may experience flashbacks and other signs of PTSD. Traumatic memories fade naturally with time. Persistence of symptoms is a signal that professional help is needed.’ I love the options provided by Richard Schulman, Ph.D., Licensed Psychologist on the show. #mentalhealth #trauma #psychologist #psychology #ptsd

Coming from a family of physicians and previously working for a large regional insurance agency; he understood that healthcare is not just an insurance product. It is a complex, but essential influence in our day to day lives, a support system that, when used properly, can and should give people peace of mind in their most difficult and darkest times. As a result, he believed healthcare and health consumers should be given the same intimacy and support that a physician would have with a patient. And, Alltrust Insurance was born. Alltrust joined Acrisure in 2015 and Joe & his lovely wife Karen have been enjoying the good life ever since. http://www.alltrustinsurance.com/

TDW Show feat: Kristi Campbell, Owner of two franchises of Home Instead Senior Care (Tampa and Brandon) discusses her business during COVID-19
Every day, all across America, families are struggling to cope.  Many are raising children, working demanding jobs and trying to care for a senior family member.  These Americans are often called the "Sandwich Generation", and they are growing in record numbers.  That's because America is aging in record numbers. By the year 2020, the number of seniors will equal the number of 20 to 35 year olds.  Advances in medicine and healthier lifestyles will help seniors work longer and continue to lead more productive lives.  But the numbers also tell another story.  More and more children need to help care for their parents.  These family caregivers eventually run out of hours in the day, the stress becomes too great and the balance is broken. The Tampa Home Instead Senior Care family has a passionate desire to be your trusted source in helping your family keep your aging mother, father, grandparents or friends in their home as they grow older. It's that simple. This is all we do and because the home care services your loved one or friend needs must come from someone you trust locally, the Tampa Home Instead Senior Care office is passionate about exceeding the needs of the elderly in our community. We're not a giant corporation run from the top down - we're a locally owned community-based, friendly and responsive office right here in Tampa, FL. Whether we are assisting with Alzheimer's care, light housekeeping, meal preparation, safety watch, companionship, personal care or medication reminders, we are an affordable solution to our clients as they remain safe and happy.  No matter where seniors live, in their home, in assisted living facilities or even nursing homes, Home Instead Senior Care is currently providing thousands of hours of senior home care services annually.  Since 2003, we have been your trusted source for comprehensive companionship and home care services for seniors throughout the Tampa area. Services can be arranged for as little as 3 hours, or as many as 24 hours, up to 7 days per week (including holidays).  This one-on-one service is performed by CAREGivers who are bonded and insured after undergoing a stringent background check.  Our compassionate CAREGivers love working with seniors and very special attention is given to matching them with clients to achieve the utmost compatibility. https://www.homeinstead.com/135

TDW Show feat: Tania Welch, Yoga Teacher discusses Wellness during COVID-19
Tania Welch's story "AN UNEXPECTED BEGINNING Hello & Welcome. I am Tania Welch…mama, yoga & wellness teacher, and founder of Indobay Living and Intent Space. My life, as I know it now, began after a great tragedy. In the early hours of September 29th, 2003 I learned that my husband had been killed in a car accident. Life as I once knew and recognized suddenly became unrecognizable and unbearable. I was 32 years old, mama to an 18-month old little boy and I was now a widow. As l limped through my days it became quite clear to me that I had a decision to make...either be defeated or live the life I imagined with courage, intention, and great joy! I CHOSE THE LATTER. How it began. A virtual soul space which I named indobay became an expression of my journey...my journey from grief and uncertainty to resilience, and deep, soul happiness derived from living a creative, intentional and simple life aligned with what mattered most. Living within the spirit of indobay helped me to re-connect with myself, pay exquisite attention to my life and my choices and navigate into the best life for myself and my little man. SO WHAT IS INDOBAY? Indobay is a way of living and a "state of mind" that embraces and passionately advocates internal wellness through the practice of simple, intentional living, yoga, and fierce soul-care. It is a nourishing space for mind, body and soul. What's next? I have rekindled a love affair with my "medicine", my soul's purpose. I had been bringing it all to my family and now I am ready to EXPAND in all directions and bring it to the world. A fire has been lit! In December, 2017, Intent Space, a conscious space to gather, was born. Intent Space exists to support folks in easefully transitioning to a more intentional life. Through simple conscious movement, meditation, self-care practices, inspired events, ritual and ceremony I hope to cultivate experiences that support a true sense of well-being; simply, sincerely and sustainably. In loving service, Tania Welch" https://www.intentspace.com

Dr. Mudgil from NY discusses COVID-19
I am a super fan of Dr. Mudgil and we had a deep conversation about this current 'temporary' new normal.  Experienced dermatologist Adarsh Vijay Mudgil, MD, brings both a clinical and a human perspective to dermatology and aesthetics at Mudgil Dermatology. The practice, which has locations in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan in New York City and Long Island, New York, specializes in dermatopathology and cosmetic, medical, and surgical dermatology. As one of the few dermatologists in the area to achieve board-certification in both dermatology and dermatopathology, Dr. Mudgil is well versed in all aspects of medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology. Dr. Mudgil possesses a unique understanding of skin disease, which shapes his approach to caring for patients of all ages — from newborns to seniors. He has published extensively in medical literature, lectured at numerous national meetings, and is a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology, the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, and the American Society of Dermatopathology. In recognition of his achievements, Dr. Mudgil was named one of New York's Super Doctors, an accolade bestowed on only about 5% of the physicians within a respective state or region. He is also listed as a Castle Connolly Top Doctor, a distinction that requires an exhaustive peer-reviewed selection process. Dr. Mudgil earned his medical degree with Alpha Omega Alpha honors from the Renaissance School of Medicine at Stony Brook University in New York. He was among a select handful of medical students nationwide to be honored with the coveted Howard Hughes Medical Institute Fellowship. Through this funding, Dr. Mudgil conducted nationally recognized research on skin cancer. He then completed his residency in dermatology at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in Manhattan, where he served as chief resident. He went on to complete a fellowship at the prestigious Ackerman Academy of Dermatopathology in New York City. Today, Dr. Mudgil draws on his extensive expertise to provide comprehensive dermatologic and cosmetic services, including laser resurfacing, fillers, Botox®, laser hair removal, CoolSculpting, Emsculpt, and photofacials.

World Mental Health Day - 970 WFLA
FROM 970 WFLA (WFLA-AM) (Oct. 10th, 2019): Jack Harris hosts.  "Sharon Fekete and Lissette (Campos) joined AM Tampa Bay to discuss that World Mental Health Day is today, October 10th. Sharon shares her story to recovery and talks about her book: "The Broken Road to Mental Health, In Life and in Business.'" ▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎ “World Mental Health Day (10 October) is a day for global mental health education, awareness and advocacy against social stigma. It was first celebrated in 1992 at the initiative of the World Federation for Mental Health, a global mental health organization with members and contacts in more than 150 countries.” I am showing you SMILING happy faces today. This smile you see today was something I NEVER thought I would see again when I was in a deep dark depression 25 years ago. Family, friends, and a strong support group loved me back to health but it took a LOT of work and trust in others. On this WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY I encourage you to help someone else. That is the secret to success in life and in business. If you are suffering, please ask for help. I did and my life today is ‘beyond my wildest dreams’ and it has absolutely nothing to do with material success. It’s love. Good ole’ fashioned love. Thank you my beautiful friend Lissette Campos -Tampa Bay and AM Tampa Bay for shining a light on mental health today...let’s keep encouraging others that asking for help is a sign of STRENGTH not weakness. If you go to therapy, a psychiatrist, a psychologist, life coach, 12 step recovery group, practice meditation, spend time connecting to spirit and beyond that ACTUALLY MEANS YOU’RE HEALTHY AND MENTALLY STRONG! No. More. Shame.

Feedback from the audience of "The Broken Road to Mental Health"
Last week I hosted an event at The Ring, a space that promotes health and wellness...yes, that includes mental health. (there's a napping pod here, it's a must see)  I interviewed 2 fab ladies in attendance, Alyssa of 13th Ave Media & Michelle of SocialVive to provide some follow up feedback. If you are struggling or know somebody who is, reach out to us. We will connect you with a professional that can help. Our discussion centered around understanding more about depression, anxiety, addiction, & alcoholism. What to say and what not to say. We all need to communicate our struggles and work through them with people that have our best interest at heart. It is certainly unhealthy and dangerous to keep it all to ourselves and show up to life every day pretending we are "OK." IN BUSINESS and IN LIFE. You are not alone.  National Suicide Prevention Lifeline Call 1-800-273-8255

The Executive Leadership Team from the City of Largo was recently given a tour of The Ring in downtown Clearwater from Janelle Branch, COO.  This is an opportunity for you to learn about this innovative space that holds a mission to optimize human potential within the built environment.  It is my great desire as a firm believer in the healthy built environment for everyone within the business community and beyond to consider the benefits of improving health, performance and productivity in the workplace.  As a consultant within the medical community I see an overall lack of consideration to this impactful mission of encouraging wellness within our workspaces.  It is an honor and a privilege to work in a space that is focused on improving health, performance, and productivity in the workplace.  I hope you enjoy this abbreviated tour and will consider visiting us in the future.  The Ring is committed to supporting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.  It aims to promote or alleviate matters related to building a stronger ecosystem.

Giving my heart to the families of alcoholics/addicts for Valentine's Day!
This podcast is dedicated to all the families who have lost someone from alcoholism and addiction.  My heart and is with you today on Valentine's Day.  The article I referenced in the podcast, PLEASE read to understand: https://bit.ly/2SGsNxa  I pulled out all the words from this brave woman's article I thought you should read... to emphasize WHY it has impacted me so much.... to understand WHY we should all hold our children a little tighter and also to SHARE what has happened to you...the braver we all become, the less children have to die.  We also need not worry about what anyone thinks, our lives matter regardless of how we look, sound, what we do for a living, how much money we have or don't have, etc...  Amanda Poole Kruegere, thank you.  Your bravery inspires me and you are loved by many.  I have included my thoughts IN CAPS underneath her words.     "I found out he was using on July 24, 2017. We sent him to a rehab that cost $45,000 for 45 days. Then we sent him to intensive outpatient rehab for another 3 months, and then a sober living house in Mill Valley for a year. I WENT TO 2 REHABS AND A HALFWAY HOUSE.  MY PARENTS ALSO PAID FOR AN ATTORNEY.  I BLACKED OUT AND MOVED TO THE STATE OF MICHIGAN FOR 2 YEARS.  THEY THOUGHT I WAS DEAD COUNTLESS TIMES.  I PUT MY ENTIRE FAMLY THROUGH HELL AND ALL THEY DID WAS LOVE ME BACK TO HEALTH.  THEY SACRIFICED FOR ME TO KEEP ME ALIVE ...JUST AS THIS FAMILY SACRIFICED FOR GIANCARLO.   I AM HIM AND HE IS ME.  He relapsed and died alone in his bed. He was the most gentle soul. ALCOHOLICS AND DRUG ADDICTS ARE TYPICALLY THE NICEST AND MOST INTELLIGENT PEOPLE.  WE HAVE AN ILLNESS, WE ARE NOT LAZY AND COME FROM BAD PARENTS.  WE ARE LOVED AND BROKEN.  I WAS AN HONOR STUDENT IN A PRIVATE SCHOOL.  I WAS A TALENTED ATHLETE, SWIMMING, BASKETBALL, TRACK, VOLLEYBALL, AND SOFTBALL.  I HAD MANY FRIENDS.  I HAVE A LOVING FAMILY AND GREW UP IN A LOVELY NEIGHBORHOOD.  I HAVE THE DISEASE OF ALCOHOLISM AND DEPRESSION IN MY FAMILY BUT IT IS NOT SPOKEN OF MUCH DUE TO SHAME AND DENIAL (I SUPPOSE).  I HAVE BEEN TOLD BY MY OWN FAMILY THAT IT IS NOT A DISEASE AND IT'S SIMPLY A MATTER OF WILL POWER.  Kids are DYING, and people are too afraid to be honest even in obituaries because of the social stigma. He was my best friend. The last thing he said to me was: ‘I’m ok mom, I love you too.’ I HOPE TO HONOR MY PARENTS AS LONG AS I CAN FOR ALL THEY HAVE SACRIFICED FOR ME. I DO BELIEVE HE IS OK, THE PAIN OF ADDICTION IS NOW AT REST FOR GIANCARLO.  THANK YOU AMANDA, FOR YOUR COURAGE AND CONCERN FOR ALL OF US.  He said: ‘Giancarlo had an invisible disease that made him sad and he took medicine that the doctor did not give him, and it made him very sick and he died and went to heaven.’ I wasn’t there but my husband said that my son gave a gut wrenching scream that didn’t sound like it could come from a 6-year-old. He then brought him home through the back door, and he laid in bed with me and covered his face with a blanket and fell asleep. MY YOUNGER BROTHER WAS THE SAME AGE AS CLYDE WHEN I WAS USING.  THERE WAS A COURT ORDER AGAINST ME TO NOT GO NEAR HIS SCHOOL TO SEE HIM.  I DON'T REMEMBER THIS, IT'S WHAT I'VE BEEN TOLD.  I WAS IN A CONSTANT BLACKOUT FROM THE AGE OF 18-21, WHEN I FINALLY GOT CLEAN AND SOBER.  I WANTED TO DIE EACH TIME I TRIED TO GET SOBER BECAUSE OF MY CHEMICAL IMBALANCE ... I WAS SAVED FROM THIS INSIDIOUS (INVISIBLE) DISEASE.  WENT TO AA, GOT OUTSIDE HELP FOR MY DEPRESSION,  GOT A SPONSOR,  TRUSTED GOD, AND I HELP OTHERS.  TO THIS DAY I AM IN AWE OF MY LIFE BUT KEEP AT THE FO

Enjoyable conversation today discussing the business of medicine. Ultimate M.D. introduces the new way to practice medicine that is ironically reminiscent of how it once was back in the day.

Healthcare simply isn’t what it used to be with most primary care physicians seeing 20 or more patients a day with an average of 15 minutes or less devoted to each patient. Each Ultimate M.D. physician maintains a small group of patients, no more than 600 per provider to deliver the highest level of primary care to each patient.
