Busy Recording!

Busy recording our next episode on chiropractic care as holistic, complimentary MS therapy — with a special guest!

Tune in on Friday. Listen, stream and follow us on iTunes and SoundCloud (the link can be found here).

“The goal of chiropractic therapy is to restore normal function to joints and their supporting structure, especially the vertebral column and pelvis. Following a simple examination and — often — radiological evaluation, the chiropractic practitioner applies precise adjustment to the vertebral column to bring structures back into alignment. This realignment is supposed to eliminate the irritation to the nerves and restore normal function.” [ https://www.nationalmssociety.org/Treating-MS/Complementary-Alternative-Medicines/Chiropractic-Therapy ]

Care for “the whole person” is key.

Love & Light.

The Lowdown on Daana & Dawn

The lowdown on Daana & Dawn:

She has a Bachelor of Arts in Africology, a Master of Science in Cultural Foundations of Education, and is a PhD candidate in Social Foundations of Education, with a specialization in Sociology. She says that her PhD candidate status will likely be in perpetuity, as finishing her dissertation presents a unique set of challenges in combination with health issues.

She loves James Baldwin, Black culture, being an Auntie, making playlists on Spotify, spreading her Black girl magic, lipstick and tattoos.

She has a BA in American Studies from SUNY Buffalo, and completed her graduate work in English as a Second Language at American University. In 2001, Dawn was on track to begin a PhD program; however, life got in the way and an MS diagnosis became the focus.

She was an elementary ESL teacher for fifteen years and now teaches ESL courses at Anne Arundel and Howard Community College on a part-time basis.

She loves being a mom to her son, yoga, transcendental meditation, foreign films, music, Black culture, and is currently completing her memoir about her life with MS.
