Episode 126 – Interview with Jason Clawson, Clinical Therapist Jason Clawson, a Clinical Therapist based in Utah, specializes in Grief, Addiction, Trauma and Mental Health. His byline for life is, “Healing takes courage!”In 2018, Jason's life was flipped upside down after his wife (Valerie) was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon Cancer. This was devastating news for his young family of four and it completely rocked their world. He was terrified because the doctor told him his wife only had days or weeks to live. Nine months later loved ones and family members were saying goodbye at her funeral. Jason recalls that time and wants others to know that “no one or thing can fully prepare you for life's challenges, trials, and pain. After the funeral was complete and over, I remember my support from my family and friends quickly disappeared. I quickly found myself all alone trying to pick up the pieces of life. It was a hard and lonely time for me”. He found himself wondering, "what happened to all the people that were here for me"? "Does anyone care anymore"? "Where is my Team"? "How will I get through this?" Life began to get more and more difficult as life continued after the passing of his wife. He found himself more and more depressed, isolating, lonely, anxious, and even struggling to sleep. Life quickly became overwhelming, and he was fearful of the future. As a clinical therapist, no one had taught him about these moments he was experiencing. The Summer following the loss of his wife, he and his sons decided to have a lemonade stand, with the goal of raising money to create "SUNSHINE BASKETS" for people that had lost a spouse, were dealing with cancer, or individuals that were struggling. The goal was to raise $100 but after the lemonade stand closed, they had raised over $1,500. The fundraising success allowed them to make 25 baskets and they begin delivering them to people who needed help and support. Shortly thereafter a lady in Virginia called to see if she could get a “Sunshine Basket” because she was struggling. That caused the launch of a new business - “Giving Sunshine” Currently, they have delivered baskets to forty-five states and soon will have sent them to all fifty states. Jason and his business partner, Wyatt Ernst, have seen rapid growth in their startup venture. Learn more about “Giving Sunshine” here: https://givingsunshine.com/ Facebook link: https://www.facebook.com/GivingSunshineDaily Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/givingsunshinedaily/

Mushrooms are a valuable food and medicine, but which ones are best? Are they safe during treatment for cancer? What's the proper dose? Do they really affect immune function? Tina & Leah discuss all of this and more from a practical- and as always-naturopathic perspective.The use of mushrooms dates back thousands of years. As a food, mushrooms add nutrients like vitamin D, B vitamins and even protein to your diet. As a medicine, all mushrooms contain components that help support proper immune system balance. In addition, each mushroom (shitake, reishi, turkey tail, cordyceps, lion's mane, maitake, and even button!) has its own action on the body that helps support energy production, brain health, lung/ kidney function, etc, etc. In this episode, Tina & Leah discuss the do's and the don'ts when using mushrooms during and after treatment for cancer.

The American Cancer Society (ACS) reports that colon cancer, after skin malignancies, is the third most prevalent cancer diagnosed in the United States. Last year alone, the ACS reported that 104,270 Americans were diagnosed with colon cancer.   While it's true that colon cancer typically affects older adults, it can happen at any age. Statistically, the rates of colon cancer have been increasing in younger people, with a 2% per year increase among people under 50. There was also a drop in the colon cancer survival rate among younger adults.  Hence, healthcare professionals strongly advise regular colorectal cancer screenings for those aged 45 to 75.   Watch today's episode, This Is Getting Old: Moving Towards An Age-Friendly World, where we'll look at colon cancer's signs and symptoms, causes, and prevention measures.   Key points covered in this episode:   ✔️ What is Colorectal (Colon) Cancer?   Colon cancer is a type of cancer that begins in the colon (large intestine)—the last part of your digestive system. This type of cancer is sometimes called colorectal cancer, which is a term that combines the colon and the rectum, but cancer begins in the rectum. The disease typically starts as a small, non-cancerous or benign polyp—a clump of cells forming inside the colon. But over time, these polyps can become colon cancers.   ✔️ Symptoms and Early Warning Signs of Colon Cancer  So you should see a doctor if you have any of these symptoms,  If you have a persistent change in your bowel habits  A change in the consistency of your stool  Rectal bleeding, or blood in your stool  Persistent abdominal discomfort (gas cramps or pain)  A feeling that you're bowel isn't emptying all the way.  Experiencing weakness or fatigue  Unexplained weight loss  ✔️ Even Black Panther Didn't Escape Colon Cancer  You may remember Chadwick Boseman, who played the role of the superhero Black Panther. He died at age 43 of colon cancer. While most people think colon cancer is just a diagnosis for older adults, the rates of colorectal cancer have been falling for older adults, but are rising for younger adults.  ✔️Did You Know That Race And Ethnicity Have Something To Do With Colon Cancer?  African-Americans are 20% more likely to get colorectal cancer, but they're also 40% likely to die from it compared to any other racial group. If  you are an African-American and in a high-risk category, please talk to your health care provider because they may recommend starting your colon cancer screening earlier—even as early as your thirties.  ✔️Is Colon Cancer Hereditary?  1 out of 3 people who get colorectal cancer have a family member who have also had the disease or polyps. Having a first-degree relative's (parent, sibling, or child) history of colorectal cancer does increase your risk. If any of your blood relatives has had colon cancer, you're at greater risk, so you should start screening earlier.   ✔️The Role of Diet in Colorectal Cancer Incidence  It is believed that the typical low-fiber, high-fat Western diet increases your chances of colon cancer, but research studies have had mixed results. Some studies have found an increased risk of cancer in people who eat diets high in red meat and processed meats. This is why France has now called for a ban on the nitrate additive for ham and charcuterie.   ✔️The Link Between Alcohol, Smoking, and Colon Cancer   Smoking tobacco has been linked to all types of cancers for a long time, including colon cancer. While it is known that moderate to heavy alcohol drinking increases your risk, but even light to moderate alcohol intake has been associated with some risk increase.  ✔️ When and How Often Should You Get a Colonoscopy?   Colon cancer screening can be a stool-based test (visual exam) done in your doctors office annually, but the gold standard screening is the colonoscopy. This test is crucial because you may not have any symptoms of colon cancer, but if polyps are found during the colonoscopy, they can be removed before they turn into cancer.   ✔️ 45 is the new 50   For an average-risk person, you should start screening at age 45 and continue every ten years as long as you're in good health and have a life expectancy of more than ten years. You should get colonoscopies until you're at least 75 years old. Then from 75 to 85, you can decide if you want to be screened based on your overall health, life expectancy, and prior screening history. When you reach the age of 85, screening is no longer recommended.   ✔️How To Avoid Colon Cancer?   Move It!  Not being active increases your risk. So you've got to move it—10,000 steps a day should be your goal.   Maintain Healthy Weight  Being overweight also increases your risk. A healthy BMI is a BMI of less than 25. A BMI of 25 to 29.9 is considered overweight, but over 30 is considered obese. So make sure we keep our weight where it needs to be.  Use this tool to calculate your BMI.  Stop Smoking  It's never too late to quit smoking so talk to your health care provider about ways to quit.   Drink Alcohol in Moderation  For ladies, this means one drink a day; and men, you get two.   Stick to a Plant-based Diet  Foods that come from their original wrapper are the types of foods that you want to eat. You can never go wrong with including a variety of whole grains, vegetables, fruits, and nuts in your diet.  If you have questions, comments, or need help, please feel free to drop a one-minute audio or video clip and email it to me at melissabphd@gmail.com, and I will get back to you by recording an answer to your question.   About Melissa Batchelor, PhD, RN, FNP, FGSA, FAAN  I earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing ('96) and Master of Science in Nursing ('00) as a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) from the University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNCW) School of Nursing (SON).

Colorectal cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer death, but is remarkably treatable if caught early. Unfortunately, because of the invasive nature of the colonoscopy, many elect not to have this procedure done in a regular and timely manner. Colorectal cancers advance from normal cells through several distinct neoplasias, each with distinct patterns of gene expression. Today's guest is Dr. Erica Barnell from Geneoscopy.  They have devised a test to identify evidence of precancerous gene expression in the stool.  This advance makes early detection more feasible, along with a higher likelihood of frequent testing, at a significantly lower cost than outpatient procedures.

"I will be strong and courageous. I will not be terrified; I will not be discouraged. For you, my Lord, are with me wherever I go." These are the words that soon became the family prayer for Ivelisse Page, a stage IV Colon Cancer survivor. In this episode of the Kathryn For Real podcast, host Kathryn Gordon is joined by Ivelisse Page, a loving wife and mother of four, where they discuss Ivelisse's journey - before, during and after her battle with Colon Cancer - using unconventional and alternative medicine.  After Ivelisse and her husband, Jimmy, consulted a variety of doctors and spent much time in Prayer - a conclusion was made that conventional Chemotherapy was not going to offer the best results or quality of life. Ivelisse was given the green light to start a holistic and alternative approach which included daily injections of Mistletoe and Thymus.  Ivelisse has beaten the 8% survival rate and has been completely Cancer Free since December 2008, without ever going through Chemotherapy. Ivelisse's positive outlook and perseverance has inspired me, along with hundreds of thousands of individuals.  This amazing story needs to be heard, as it could save lives. Share this Podcast with everyone you know and leave a review with what inspired you after listening to this episode! Ivelisse is the Executive Director and Co-Founder of the Believe Big Organization. Believe Big helps Cancer patients and their families by bridging the gap between conventional and complementary medicine to heal all aspects of life.

In this episode we will discuss Colon Cancer.  Since we don't have a guest this week it will be just the hosts this week. Colon cancer is a type of cancer that begins in the large intestine (colon). The colon is the final part of the digestive tract. Colon cancer typically affects older adults, though it can happen at any age. It usually begins as small, noncancerous (benign) clumps of cells called polyps that form on the inside of the colon. Over time some of these polyps can become colon cancers. Polyps may be small and produce few, if any, symptoms. For this reason, doctors recommend regular screening tests to help prevent colon cancer by identifying and removing polyps before they turn into cancer. If colon cancer develops, many treatments are available to help control it, including surgery, radiation therapy and drug treatments, such as chemotherapy, targeted therapy and immunotherapy. Colon cancer is sometimes called colorectal cancer, which is a term that combines colon cancer and rectal cancer, which begins in the rectum. ​ . (Credits: MAYO Clinic)

As you know, I am bringing awareness to IBD, Crohn's, UC, Colon Cancer, Auto Immune Disorders, and childhood sickness. You will be so inspired by hearing Jason and his mom's story.  They encouraged me so much even with our own walk with my son's disease.   Jason Roberts is 25 years old and currently lives in New Orleans, Louisiana.  He grew up in Georgia and played baseball all throughout his upbringing. Was diagnosed at 16 with severe IBD and life was radically changed. Melissa Roberts is the 59 year old wife of Paul Roberts (married 38 years) and mother to 5 children -Melissa had surgery to remove her colon in 1990 had the second surgery to connect internally the same year. God has done a great work of healing in her  and her son's lives! You will hear about how Jason dealt with anger and rebellion due to his illness. You will hear from Melissa the difference in perspective when you are going through sickness verses when your child is going through the sickness.  Jason was only 16 years old at the time  when he was diagnosed and things accelerated in a downward spiral. He was in shock and knew that he was very sick  and near death.  We talked about how God is near to us even in the darkest, coldest places in our lives.  I can't wait for you to hear this whole story.  You will be inspired.  I want to share this scripture with you today.  In the podcast I mentioned that it was in the book of Isaiah, but it's actually in the book of Jeremiah.   Jeremiah 31:2-4 Thus says the Lord: “The people who survived the sword Found grace in the wilderness— Israel, when I went to give him rest.” The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying: “Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you. Again I will build you, and you shall be rebuilt,   God wants to rebuild everything that the enemy has torn down in your life. Keep believing and don't lose faith. You will feel the Love of God in the podcast and I pray the Holy Spirit will draw you to God's heart by showing your kindness and love.  There are many feelings involved with IBD: fear, sadness, confusion, anger, self-pity.  It affects every aspect of your life - physically, spiritually and emotionally. Because being confined to either the hospital or home can bring on  all those feelings and emotions.   Here's a word from Jason and Melissa if you have been diagnosed with this disease! Jason - hold fast to God and don't let go of your faith in Him. Watch what He does, because He will work and be faithful. It's ok to be afraid or angry and be as gentle with yourself as you can because it's easy to be hard on yourself. This disease is not your fault.  Melissa - don't be afraid to ask people for help and make sure people are praying for you. There were many times we literally felt we were being carried on the prayers of people.    If you'd like to get in touch with Melissa or Jason, you can reach out right here:  Social Media: Jason - Facebook:  facebook.com/jason.roberts Melissa - Facebook:  facebook.com/melissakoonroberts Instagram:  mkrobs919 // Twitter: mkrobs

There are colon cancer patients who do not feel comfortable speaking to others about their journey. For Merrill Culverhouse, who was diagnosed with colon cancer at 43 years old, talking about his journey has never been a problem. In addition to good therapy for himself, Merrill felt sharing might make a difference in someone else's life, too. Whether it helped someone decide to follow up with their doctor about symptoms they were having or to follow through with having a colonoscopy for the first time, Merrill wanted to think what he was saying made a difference. To give others a place to share, Merrill started the South Alabama Semi-Colon Club. In addition to being a pharmacist, Merrill is also a restaurant owner, using his Wheelhouse Restaurant as the meeting place for the group. Tonight, Merrill is sharing his colon cancer experience and mission from his restaurant in Opp. I hope you will listen as Merrill has an urgent message to be proactive when it comes to colorectal health. Listen & share.

“There is something about being content…we talked about us being neighbors,  I have outgrown my house but I'm not moving. I appreciate having coffee on the front porch on Saturdays when its just my wife and I. That… does it for me.” Hello my faithful listeners, welcome to Episode #21! Thanks for sticking with me! I have so much good stuff in the pipeline! I am incredibly thankful that YOU are carving out a chunk of your time to spend with me today. Now, I need to warn you this episode is really intense and also one you will not be able to stop listening to. So, be prepared. Today we dive into my friend Michael Hackett's journey with cancer. If you live in Baton Rouge, you have seen Michael's smiling handsome face on billboards all over town in the past few years with the tagline, “We don't treat Cancer, We treat Michael.” Michael is incredible vulnerable about his cancer journey, about what he wished he had done before hand, about the process, and about what he takes away from this difficult journey. For my listeners who have cancer or who have fought it, or have someone close to them who has,  my heart is with you. Michael's candor will draw you into his incredible story and I promise you'll walk away inspired, challenged, and likely need a few tissues as we dive deep into some of life's biggest questions and challenges. This conversation felt something similar to my talk with David Magee, episode number 1. I think anyone listening could hear the sincerity, the vulnerability, and the honesty of Michael, which makes it a story we can all connect to. No one is putting on a show here, this is just the raw truth. I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did, and that you now know that Michael is so much more than just the cancer guy. And, perhaps the biggest takeaway for me from this is the importance of having a great circle around you, to walk with you, through the good and the bad. The quote Michael said really rescinded with me and will be how we wrap this one up, “Shared joy is double joy. Shared sorrow is half sorrow.” Timeline:2:37- 4:30  Intro/Background5:00 “When did you first know there was a problem?”6:00: Start Cancer Story8:37 Bloody stool cannot be ignored any more11:00 Long walk the night before surgery, conversation about what goes wrong…12:00“The night before my surgery…she's such a strong beautiful person…”15:30 “I don't think I did this to myself… I'm not Googling anything, I'm just following my instructions… Physically I felt like a 1/10, but mentally spiritually emotionally I felt like  a 10/10”17:00 “And that's the one thing I am proud of that I still do today.”19:15 “Can you put us in the chair for round 1 of Chemo?”27:00 Stopped Chemo due to C-Diff29:00 “What i went through was nothing, it was 7 months of my life, when you see a child, knowing what you are going through, knowing the pain and suffering you are going through…”33:37 Getting good progress Reports from Docs. “All I gotta do is get to the finish line?”35:00 “You ring the bell and people come to celebrate…”39:00 “Tell me a few ways this experience has changed you?” “I never realized how friendships and family… its just unbelievable, I have so many people literally in my phone I can call up and have a meaningful conversation with, I'm talking hundreds of people.

On this week's episode, Nicole and Alanna are joined by Leslie Jacobs Toole, a local Cincinnati momma with a story to tell. She had actually followed Alanna for a while on social media and once she learned of GWGP, she reached out to share her  BRCA Gene story with the gals. Being a topic both Alanna and Nicole were not very familiar with, it was a no-brainer to have her on the show. In this episode, Leslie shares with us about her long family history with breast cancer - including her mother, who was diagnosed with breast cancer at the young age of 34. After witnessing her mother's suffering, she recognized the very real possibility she could have the BRCA Gene and also develop cancer like her mother. Against her mother's blessing, Leslie got tested - and the test came back positive. Then, in 2012 at the age of 24, she took her own health into her hands and got a double mastectomy. We were so blessed that Leslie felt comfortable enough to share the vulnerable details of how cancer and BRCA has affected her life - and we think others who are in a similar position will feel comforted and seen by her kind testimony - including how neglecting her emotional healing led her down a path that eventually led to her sobriety (7 years now!) If your family has been touched by breast cancer and you're curious about the BRCA gene, then this is a wonderful conversation that you absolutely won't want to miss!   If you want to learn more about the podcast and the hosts, visit our website at www.girlswithgutspodcast.com.   Follow us on social media!

Ana tells her story of childhood disease of Crohn's and how she is dealing with the challenges it brings.  If you've been following my journey with my son Rhett Swanson, then you know  I am bringing awareness to IBD, Crohn's, Ulcerated Colitis, Colon Cancer, Ileostomy bags, and childhood disease.  Today you will hear about Ana's story of survival and how she got through it all.   Ana is 28 years old and started to get sick at 14, but not officially diagnosed until 15. She graduated from high school even though she was sick in 2012 and went to college for nursing.  She joined the BCM at her first college and went through a lot of sickness in school. Eventually she had to move back closer to home and went to Ga State University at Perimeter college. She got a degree finally in 2018. Still all while going through illness physically, mentally and emotionally. She sadly never made it to nursing school, but she was able to go on many mission trips.    Ana is  still going through so much with Crohn's disease including having to have a month long stay in January 2022. That was the longest hospital stay that ended in  two surgeries. One ended in one of her worse nightmares of having to get a temporary Ostomy bag. Things were really rough for a while, but slowly got better! Due to Covid and not being able to work she decided to open her own business of painting! Then this May 2022, she published her first book! Her powerful story of trials and triumphs is still going and she is getting stronger each day. She stands upon Phil. 4:13 I can do ALL THINGS through Jesus Christ who gives me strength.  You are going to be so inspired by her story.
