  • An example of being Fibromyalgia free

    I had a client named Sam who had a variety of fluctuating symptoms ranging from aches and pain to depression, insomnia, anxiety and exhaustion. Although the diagnosis of Fibromyalgia usually involves women patients, he was given this diagnosis by his physician. When Sam came to me he was at his wit’s end. We started a Fibro-free Quality of Life Treatment Program which includes a once-a-month core program with take-home follow-up activities, add-on options and free support activities.

    Some of the first summer vegetables harvested in Kentucky gardens are cool, crisp cucumbers. Cucumbers can be found in local gardens and farmers markets between June and mid-September.

    The intruder didn’t seem fazed that he was somewhere he didn’t belong and just buzzed around, probably plotting an attack on my bare arms.

  • General Assembly worked to improve Medicaid savings

    One of the General Assembly’s top priorities this year – fixing a short-term deficit in Medicaid while putting the program on a path toward long-term savings – took a major, even historic, step forward last Thursday.

    That morning, Governor Beshear announced three companies had been hired to manage the care of most of those enrolled in Medicaid. These companies are joining Passport, a state-created entity that has already been doing the same type of work in Jefferson and 15 surrounding counties for more than a decade.
