Dr. Srini Pillay, Best-Selling Author, Examines the Consciousness in Jimi Hendrix’s Addiction

Dr. Srini Pillay.

“The stigma around drug use and its associated psychiatric vulnerabilities such as depression remain ride.” – Dr. Srini Pillay

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, December 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Remembering the birth of Jimi Hendrix 77 years later: November 27, 1942. If Jimi Hendrix was alive, he would be 77 years old this month. Instead, he overdosed and died at the tender age of 27 in room 507 at The Samarkand Hotel in London. Widely regarded as one of the greatest instrumentalists of rock music, Hendrix’s guitar mastery remains an inspiration, my favorite songs of his being “Hey Joe” and “Purple Haze.” The immense joy that he brought so many people was only exceeded by the sadness of losing him. Who knows how music would have changed had his addictions been addressed. More importantly, imagine how much longer he could have enjoyed his own brilliance.

Since then, some things have changed and some have not. The stigma around drug use and its associated psychiatric vulnerabilities such as depression remain rife. While psychiatry has done much to advance the treatment of addictions, the psychiatric lexicon still has subtle descriptors that perhaps contribute to this stigma.

Words like “impaired” judgement, while seemingly accurate, also imply that something is damaged, deranged or strangely altered. But “judgement” itself is not an addressable problem in a person who suffers form addiction. In addiction, judgment is under siege. Choice appears to be an option to outsiders, but for those who are lost and in pain, choice becomes the slave of mood, and even a brilliance like Hendrix’s is eclipsed from one’s own mind. It’s not so much that addiction is disorder, it’s an unfortunate new order that blocks a sustained embrace of life. Its not choiceness though—addiction can be stopped in its tracks.

Though we may not have Hendrix’s talent, we are all born to the dubious gift of this life with one very bright possibility ~ to explore and develop our consciousness safely; to discover our own funky genius; and to share it with others so that we can enjoy the enhancements of collective and connected magic.

Jay Grossman, L.A.’s Celebrity Dentist, to Raise Money for Veteran and Foster Youth Dental Care

Dr. Jay Grossman

Concierge Dentistry

Dr. Jay Grossman and his Concierge Dentistry team’s goal has always been simple, to deliver the finest dental care available.

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, December 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Tongue Health. You brush and floss twice a day, or at least I hope you do, but you could be doing your mouth a disservice if you aren't also attacking the bacteria living on your tongue.

Whether it's to fight bad breath or just for good dental health, cleaning your tongue is important. What exactly makes the tongue a prime location for a bacteria block party? It’s the papillae, tiny bumps and grooves on the tongue, which everyone has, and it often captures food particles that rot away resulting in bad breath (halitosis). So this muscle must be cleaned in addition to your teeth and gums.

The ADA recommends brushing your teeth twice daily for two minutes each. During this process, you should also lightly brush your tongue – and a tongue scrapper is the best option. I prefer the stainless steal type, which you can sterilize in the dishwasher!

Technique: Brush the scraper from the back of your tongue to the front, rinsing off residue as it builds up on the scraper. Once you've scraped your tongue, rinse your mouth with mouthwash to get rid of any loose residue. Be sure to clean your tongue once or twice per day with your regular brushing schedule

Additional ways to help our Veterans and foster youth:
Whiten your teeth in an hour: Donate a minimum of $200 to HNT (which provides free dental care to veterans and foster children) and we will whiten your teeth for FREE as a thank you. Offer open to all, regardless if you are a patient of record.

Educator Dr. Myra L. Weiger to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

IRVINGTON, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, December 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — A teacher must have imagination and creativity.

An expert in English and speech therapy, Dr. Myra B. Weiger spent 55 years as an educator.

“I cared very much about people and seeing them succeed,” says Dr. Weiger. “I loved teaching, I loved those kids. I've never forgotten them. I thought of them as my children, every one, wherever they came from.

Dr. Weiger began her professional career as an English teacher with the Irvington Board of Education in 1956, later joining Gary Public Schools as a speech therapist from 1956 to 1957 and teacher of the deaf from 1957 to 1959. Dr. Weiger served Kean University from 1964 for 49 years as a professor and Chair of the Dept. of Elementary, Middle, and Secondary Education and Educational Administration

“We need really humane people working who care, because it takes finding the right way to teach,” says Dr. Weiger. “You have to reach them in order to teach them, and each student can be reached in different ways. I didn't see my students as kids who were disabled. If you can get them laughing and show them you care, they can succeed.

Dr. Weiger says is very concerned about the current generation and sees real flaws in the new approach to educating students with special needs.

“The old classes used to have a mixture of everybody. We didn't segregate them so much. I never I felt I was responsible for improving the lives of the bright kids because they were working at it. They didn't even need me.”

“Everyone learned the material in their own way and contributed in their own way by working in groups. They would produce something among themselves, and the whole project would be beautiful, and they were friends with one another, whatever their ability level. They learned how to work together. Do we have that today? I'm hopeful that we can include the new things with some of the old things. To combine the best of both worlds would be wonderful.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Dr. Myra L. Weiger in an interview with Jim Masters on December 12th at 1pm EST.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

New Music Video Teaches Teens and Young Adults How to Recognize Symptoms and Treat an Opioid Overdose

Free Video Demonstrates the Three Simple Steps to Follow to Successfully Deliver Naloxone in a Suspected Opioid Overdose

You know who has the most exposure to people who may have OD’d on Opioids? Young People! We produced this music video with the hope that it would be shared far and wide. ”

— Sandy Bardas, Co-Chair of the Opioid Task Force for the CSHP

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, December 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Samantha Isidro, a fourth-year pharmacy student at Chapman School of Pharmacy in Irvine, California and Sandy Bardas, Co-Chair of the Opioid Task Force for the California Society of Health-System Pharmacists (CSHP) have created an important new video that addresses today’s growing Opioid overdose crisis and are making it available for free. Using pharmacy students and original music by Danny Dodge and Annie Grunwald, the video shows what an opioid overdose emergency looks like and how to safely use Naloxone to save the lives of those who have overdosed either by accident or by intent.

Naloxone, (also known as Narcan®) is used in opioid overdoses to counteract life-threatening depression of the central nervous system and respiratory system, allowing an overdose victim to breathe normally. Naloxone is available both as a prescription item and without a prescription from a pharmacist. The easiest-to-use delivery method is the NARCAN© Nasal Spray, which is stocked by all major pharmacy chains.

Traditionally administered by emergency response personnel, today naloxone can be administered by minimally trained laypeople. The new video is intended to help prepare anyone, especially young people, to treat an opioid overdose, whether in people who have been prescribed opioid pain medication, or those who choose to use heroin and other opioids. Naloxone is effective in treating overdoses of heroin, morphine, codeine, Dilaudid™, hydromorphone, Vicodin™, oxycodone, Norco™, Percocet™, fentanyl, Demerol™, OxyContin™, methadone, and Roxanol™. Overdose symptoms include dizziness, slow heart rate, slow breathing, confusion, pinpoint pupils and pale, cold skin.

“You know who has the most exposure to people who may have OD’d on Opioids?” Asks Sandy Bardas, Co-Chair of the Opioid Task Force for the CSHP. “Young People! We produced this music video with the hope that it would be shared far and wide by professionals, by media, by friends, friends of friends, to empower everyday people, particularly young people, to identify symptoms of opioid overdose and know how to use the lifesaving NARCAN medication. We need a youth-centered, community-driven approach to increase the effectiveness of this important form of harm reduction.”

The new CSHP video has no copyright restrictions and is intended to be freely shared. Follow this link to download the video from YouTube.

About CSHP
Founded in 1962, the California Society of Health-System Pharmacists (CSHP) is a non-profit professional association established to serve the needs of hospital and health-system pharmacists. Representing over 4,500 members who practice clinical pharmacy and specialized medicine, CSHP is the largest state association for pharmacists. CSHP members share a common mission – to promote wellness, patient safety and the optimal use of medication.

The icons included in the book come from private collections, with many pieces that have rarely or never been displayed to the public before. Each featured icon was professionally evaluated and described by Anna Ivannikova, a reputable art expert and historian who has made a significant contribution to studying antique icons, and Sergey Khodorkovskiy, a private collector and specialist in old Russian icons. Thanks to their efforts, Russian Icon Collection represents a compilation of expert knowledge gained over many years of experience.

The collection of Russian icons included in the book is distinguished by a unique style and value. Most of the featured icons were created in the important iconographic centers of the Russian Empire, particularly in Palekh, Mstyora, and Kholuy. Among the highlights are 18th- and 19th-century icons depicting the scene of The Resurrection – The Harrowing of Hades, also known as “full-cycle icons” or “polnitsy.” Other interesting examples of Russian icon art presented in Russian Icon Collection are the Feodorovskaya Mother of God with the legend of the icon in 16 border scenes, a set of 12 Menaion icons with the depictions of feasts and saints for each month of the ecclesiastical year, a rare icon of the Iconostasis, and hagiographical icons of St. Alexius – the Man of God and St. Catherine, among others.

Russian Icon Collection is the first book released by Russian Icon in collaboration with the Museum of the Russian Icon in Moscow. The latter is the largest private museum of Russian icons and Christian art in Russia, which was founded by the reputable art patron and philanthropist Mikhail Abramov in 2006. The Museum is housed in two historic mansions on Goncharnaya Street in Moscow, reconstructed and equipped for storing and displaying a collection of nearly 5,000 pieces. Admission is free, including guided tours, lectures, and concerts held at the Museum.

A PDF version of Russian Icon Collection can be downloaded on the official website of Russian Icon. The printed version of the book is expected to be released in the near future.
