In this episode, I am talking poop with Melissa Ramos!

Melissa is a Nutritionist focusing on Chinese Nutrition Therapy and owner of Sexy Food Therapy Inc. She helps people feel sexy from the inside out with a focus on digestion and hormone imbalances.

Melissa's journey began when she got sick. She started to see a nutritionist and discovered she had digestive issues. Melissa went and studied nutrition and from there, she studied Chinese Medicine right afterward. She began a blog basically just for fun. In the beginning, she was blogging about how she emotionally ate the right way and was documenting a lot of dating stories. To her surprise, a bunch of people started reading it and the business focus changed. A lot of it changed based on her personal struggle with digestion and a near death experience that she discusses in the interview.

There are a lot of misconceptions about hospice and that's why I asked Jennifer to be on the show.  She shared with us the important truth about hospice:

  • Recommended reading is "Being Mortal".  You can watch the documentary on Front Line.
  • National Hospice has a FAQ that answers common questions such as:   
    • When is the right time to ask about hospice?
    • How does care begin?
    • Will I be the only hospice patient that the staff serves?
    • Is care available after hours?
    • How does it work to keep the patient comfortable?
    • What role does the volunteer serve?
    • If I reside in a nursing facility or other type of long-term care facility can I elect hospice care?
    • What happens if I cannot stay at home due to my increasing care need and require a different place to stay during my final phase of life?
    • Do state and federal reviewers inspect and evaluate hospices?
    • How can I be sure that quality care is provided?

What does a Chaplain do?

Chaplains are educators.  Chaplains provide spiritual care, and educate people about end of life.  Bill is familiar with 55 religious preferences and helps facilitate the dying’s wishes.  Bill said that according to the “happiness index”, Bhutan is the happiest country because of how they deal with death. Chaplains deal with human issues, not necessary religion.

Her friend said, “He couldn't see that you can’t hear” and that’s what gave her the idea for a world wide symbol for the hearing impaired.
