It’s been reported that 142 people in the U.S., die each day from opioid overdoses. This is not only a national crisis, it’s an epidemic impacting hundreds of families in North County.

OSKA PULSE

(CON TI N U ED)

As a small, portable and wearable pain device, the question is often raised how Oska Pulse compares to other pain reduction devices that are seen on the market. Ultimately, the other machines are only pain blockers which send electrical signals to the area of pain. and pads, which require continuous replacement. Oska Pulse works at the cellular level to restore cell function, it does not need to be in contact with the skin, is portable, rechargeable and is a one-time purchase. Oska believes in its patented eTec Pulse Technology’s ability to provide benefit for people with a wide range of pain problems so much that it offers a full 30-day money back guarantee. “I’m very impressed with my Oska Pulse, It’s amazing how it definitely eases pain. I would recommend it to anyone who suffers with pain. It’s a great device, easy to take with you anywhere you go or just strap in on the tender area with the belt provided and wear it throughout the day.” Johanna C. Many people deal with pain on a daily basis. From acute to chronic injuries stemming from rigorous athletic training, to the pain that comes from aging or chronic illness, Oska Pulse is the perfect option to include in your wellness applications. With the simple push of a button you will be assisting your body’s natural recovery process, allowing you to live an increasingly full and pain-free lifestyle. As they say at Oska Inc., “when pain stops, life begins!”

ARTICLE DR. KRISTI MAAS EGG FREEZING SEEMS TO BE IN THE NEWS LATELY AND IT LEAVES MANY WOMEN WONDERING … SHOULD I? could I? To help sort out if egg freezing might be worth considering, I have provided some quick tips below: HOW MANY EGGS DO YOU HAVE? Our current understanding of female fertility is that a woman is born with all of her eggs. The eggs remain in a “quiet” state until a woman reaches puberty, at which time she will start to develop multiple “eligible” eggs each month. One egg is selected from those

Also, since our eggs have been with us since before we were born, fewer and fewer over time are healthy enough to make a baby. Older eggs are more likely to have chromosomal problems, leading to fewer pregnancies, more miscarriages and more babies with chromosomal abnormalities. CAN WE PRESERVE FERTILITY?

into embryos that can be implanted into the uterus. This is a variation of IVF. This technology has limitations, though. First, we only have access to a small number of eggs each cycle, and this number gets smaller as we get older. This limits the number of eggs we can collect at any one time to freeze. Next, as we age, the quality of our eggs declines. Since we don’t have a test or marker for egg quality, you won’t know until you try to use the eggs if

THE MITCHELL THORP FOUNDATION FROM TRAGEDY TO TRIUMPH

IN 2008, BRAD AND BETH THORP BURIED THEIR 18-YEAR-OLD SON, MITCHELL, AFTER AN EXCRUCIATING FIVE-YEAR MEDICAL TRIBULATION THAT MAXED OUT THEIR INSURANCE, EMPTIED THEIR BANK ACCOUNT, CHALLENGED THEIR MARRIAGE AND LED THEM TO SPECIALISTS ALL OVER THE COUNTRY. In February 2004, Mitchell was an energetic seventh-grader at Aviara Oaks Middle School with a 4.0 GPA and a serious talent for baseball.  What started as headaches evolved into severe and chronic pain, uncontrollable seizures, loss of muscle control and the ability to walk or feed himself.  When he passed away in a Dallas hospital on November 19, 2008, doctors still had not traced the cause of his undiagnosed illness. During those black-cloud years, the Carlsbad couple said there was a silver lining.  Friends and strangers organized a 2006 walk-a-thon that raised $70,000 the family used to pay down medical bills. From that gesture, just nine months after they lost their son, the couple launched the Mitchell Thorp Foundation (MTF), which each year provides more than $250,000 in support through their four programs to the parents of children with life-threatening illnesses, diseases and disorders.

“ WITHOUT THE ASSISTANCE FROM THE MITCHELL THORP FOUNDATION, WE WOULD HAVE BEEN HOMELESS.”

The challenges families face when their child becomes ill is devastating. It turns their whole life upside down, 24/7 care and hardship become a way of life. Statistically 78% of married couples caring for a terminally ill child end in divorce or separation, often bankrupting them financially, physically and spiritually. By direct contrast MTF has a 100% success rate in keeping the families they serve together.

Among the many children MTF has helped, is the Sullivan family. Their son Keane who was 2 years old was diagnosed with high risk Neuroblastoma. Mom had to quit her job to stay by Keane’s side to care for him, traveling to and from the hospital, to be with him during his surgeries, chemo and stem cell treatments. Dad is working and taking care of the twin siblings who often get forgotten during a medical crisis. The foundation came to their rescue and helped them under the Medical and Home Assistance program. “Without the assistance from the Mitchell Thorp Foundation, we would have been homeless.” said mom. They helped us navigate through this journey, including advocating at the hospital for outstanding medical bills.” Brad said the compassion he and his wife have for other parents comes from their own painful experience.  The Foundation serves from 12 to 20 families a month at an average of $1,500 to $2,500 each.  More than 93% of the $1,240,662 the

foundation has raised since 2011, has gone toward their programs to assist children, a record of efficiency so impressive it earned the 2016 Starfish Leadership Award from the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce. Today, nine years after their son Mitchell passed away, his spirit lives on through the countless number of children the foundation has touched.   Their collaboration in creating partnerships helps provide the many programs, which include: + Medical and Home Assistance Program + Healing and Rehabilitation Program + Conversion Wheelchair Mobility Van Program + Youth Leadership Program + The 9th Annual Mitchell Thorp Foundation 5K Warrior Spirit Run/Walk, will be held in
