N.C. among top states for new HIV infections ~ according to a publication by the Indy Week in Dec 2011 

HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus. This is the virus that causes AIDS. HIV disease is used to broadly describe the disease or illness caused by infection with the human immunodeficiency virus. HIV disease compromises the immune system and if left untreated results in life threatening illness. While there is no cure for HIV, if individuals are diagnosed early and begin treatment appropriately, they may live with the illness, managing it as a chronic disease.

Unfortunately, people in the South with HIV or AIDS can't access many of the resources needed to care or prevent the disease, even though the region, in particular North Carolina, has the highest rates of new HIV diagnoses and HIV-related deaths in the U.S.
These numbers are part of an analysis released two years ago by the Southern HIV/ AIDS Strategy Initiative (SASI), which is affiliated with the Duke University AIDS Legal Assistance Project. The analysis is based on a 2009 study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
About 35,000 people are living with HIV/ AIDS in North Carolina, where high rates of the infection are partly caused by the large number of rural areas, where residents often have limited access to medical facilities and reliable transportation.
The medical field has been working relentlessly to find a cure for the disease and Fox News recently reported a promising study by Denmark researchers that could ultimately lead to a cure for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) but in the mean time, with 7 new cases reported every week in Mecklenburg County, something has to be done to support individuals that are living with the disease.

Charlotte View conversation with Dale Pierce, founder of Different Roads Home, a non-profit in Huntersville, NC., and Kareem Strong, the organization’s director of programming. They both are determined to prove the illness is still a threat, and they want to make things better for victims. The organization offers support services, one-on-one help, nutrition assistance and mentoring programs for those living with the illness.
The mission of Different Roads Home is to assist individuals battling the illness and to advocate, raise awareness, and eliminate stigma associated with the disease.

Mecklenburg County has high rates of HIV disease according to the Centers for Disease Control, 20% of new cases of HIV disease reported in NC come from Mecklenburg County
Mecklenburg Co. has the highest number of HIV/AIDS cases in NC, with 7 new cases of HIV being reported per week! In Charlotte, there are many high quality medical options, but often, their emotional, psychological, and spiritual needs are not met, which is where Different Roads Home is hoping to make a difference by helping to fill the gaps in psychosocial support and supportive care for HIV individuals.

The following reports highlight the impact of HIV disease in Mecklenburg County

This month, Different Roads Home is launching The Good Road Project, a mentoring program that will partner experienced HIV survivors with recently diagnosed individuals.
Different Roads Home understands that living with various chronic illnesses can be a difficult road to travel alone without education, compassion and support. With this in mind, The Good Road Project was developed to aid in the healing and coping process of treatment, adherence and quality of life for those who may find this journey a difficult one.
The Good Road Project connects mentors who are trained and experienced survivors who have overcome many of the obstacles that are presented by the disease and its diagnosis with a mentee. A mentee is an individual who has recently received a positive diagnosis and is having difficulty coping with illness, and/or struggling with treatment, knowledge and adherence.
Mentors and mentees are matched based on personal goals, needs and skills; as well as geographical location, age and gender, when possible; among other factors, to ensure the best possible fit

1. What is stigma?
HIV-related stigma refers to the negative beliefs, feelings and attitudes towards people living with HIV and/or associated with HIV. Thus, HIV-related stigma may affect those suspected of being infected by HIV; those who are related to someone living with HIV; or those most at risk of HIV infection, such as people who inject drugs, sex workers, men who have sex with men and transgender people.
HIV-related stigma exists worldwide and manifests itself in countries, communities, religious groups and individuals, though its basic elements are surprisingly common across cultures.
It is expressed in stigmatizing language and behaviour, such as ostracization and abandonment; shunning and avoiding everyday contact; verbal harassment; physical violence; verbal discrediting, blaming and gossip. Stigma often lies at the root of discriminatory actions. Stigma may also be internalized by stigmatized individuals in the form of feelings of shame, self-blame and worthlessness.
[Stigma can be reduced by empowerment of people living with HIV and other stigmatized groups, updated information and education about HIV, media campaigns, and activities that foster interaction among people living with HIV, those most at risk of infection and key audiences.]
2. What is discrimination?
HIV-related discrimination refers to the unfair and unjust treatment (act or omission) of an individual based on his or her real or perceived HIV status. Though HIV-related stigma often leads to discrimination, it is important to note that even if a person feels stigma towards another, s/he can decide to not to act in a way that is unfair or discriminatory. Conversely, a person may discriminate against another without personally holding stigmatising beliefs, for example, where discrimination is mandated by law.
Discrimination in the context of HIV also includes unfair treatment of key affected populations, such as sex workers, people who use drugs, men who have sex with men, transgender people, prisoners, and in some social contexts women, young people, migrants, refugees and internally displaced people.
Discrimination may occur in families, workplaces, health-care services, prisons, schools, places of worship and within social networks, or in the context of housing, insurance, social support, travel, migration and the granting of asylum and refugee settlement.
Discrimination can be institutionalized through existing laws, policies and practices that negatively target people living with HIV and marginalized groups. Omission can also be a form of discrimination when, for example, the level of resources directed towards the key affected populations are not commensurate with the level of epidemic among them, or when HIV surveillance fails to track infections among these populations.
Discrimination is a human rights violation and is prohibited by international human rights law and most national constitutions.
Discrimination can be reduced through the removal of punitive laws and enactment of protective legislation, robust enforcement of protective policies, training of service providers (health care professionals, teachers, police, judiciary) on non-discrimination in the context of HIV, educating people about relevant rights and laws, promoting contact between those discriminated against and those discriminating, and providing access to legal services for affected populations.

Apr 26-Charlotte View: Limitless Life, Love, Mind and Possibilities by Tracy Becker 04/26 by Charlotte View Internet Radio | Blog Talk Radio

Apr 26-Charlotte View: Limitless Life, Love, Mind and Possibilities by Tracy Becker 04/26 by Charlotte View Internet Radio | Blog Talk Radio

Transformational Coach definition according to Tracy Becker

Transformation means to go through a thorough or dramatic change

• I help you become FREE of their pain, suffering, dissatisfaction especially that which is connected to lack, scarcity, limitation and/or poverty consciousness

• All negative, limiting and discordant thoughts, feelings, actions and beliefs are all based out of FEAR and FEAR is all rooted in some perspective of lack, scarcity and/or poverty

• Some of the most common ones that I’m sure you can relate to are: lack of money, time, love, understanding, freedom, support, and safety.

• Yet anytime we hear ourselves say or think phrases like: I can’t, it won’t work, I don’t have what it takes, I’m not____________, I will never be able to. Or when we hear ourselves say or think these
things about another or the world around us we are perpetuating the problem.

• I understand that our experiences have often included fighting, anguishing, struggling, worrying, but this doesn’t have to be the way of life. In fact it is essential for us as individuals, groups, communities, countries, etc. to start focusing on shifting this NOW

• Once we get to the source of these perceptions and experiences and heal and resolve them, we can then shift into that which we were truly meant to be….Abundant and ever creative

• We then also begin to become more and more aligned with our Divine Plan and until we are completely aligned with our Divine plan we will continue to experience more lack and limitations which lead to suffering.

• Until this happens we will never be able to sustain lasting peace. And I do not know the last time that someone has said that they do not want inner peace. Everyone I have ever helped has, in some way, shape or form told me that they want to experience sustained periods of peace.

• The good news is that it is MY DIVINE PLAN to help you get to your DIVINE PLAN. I have been training for this my whole life and I’m really good at uncovering the sneaky and pesky aspects of our
mental and emotional bodies that go against this.

• I can get to the core of your thoughts, actions, beliefs and feelings that sabotage your success on a moment by moment basis and provide you with the essential tools that I use myself to help you
transmute, transform, resolve and evolve into that which you truly know that you are.

• Fulfilling your Divine purpose and plan which includes limitless abundance, inner peace, fun and fulfilling work, loving, joyful and co-creative relationships and a trust and connection so deep and
amazing you will not believe it!

• Think about this being your moment by moment experience: solutions for every problem that exists on Earth, plus divine family life, eternal peace, prosperity, abundance, financial freedom, vibrant
health, divine love, supreme harmony and illumined truth.

• Also available to us are the real possibilities of peaceful nations and worlds, enlightenment, illumination, wisdom, friendship, honest, universal brother and sisterhood, tolerance, patience, integrity, success, creativity, fulfillment, joy, happiness and all other divine qualities of God.

• To do this we must energize these qualities, experiences and attributes with our thoughts, words, actions and feelings. Yet sometimes this isn’t as easy as it sounds…Simple but not easy not without supreme self-awareness.

• I have so many tools and techniques to offer you, plus my years of experience helping myself and others overcome these that I can hardly wait to show you how it is done.

Apr 19 - Charlotte View: The Emotion Code with Betsy Lambert 04/19 by Charlotte View Internet Radio | Blog Talk Radio

Apr 19 - Charlotte View: The Emotion Code with Betsy Lambert 04/19 by Charlotte View Internet Radio | Blog Talk Radio

If you are like us, in Charlotte View, the first question we asked ourselves when we heard about Betsy Lambert and the Emotion Code, was What is The Emotion Code?

Showtime: Friday, April 19, 2013 NOON (EST)
Category: Self Help
Call in Number: (805) 830-8344
Duration: 30 min - 45 min 
Link: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/charlotteview/2013/04/19/apr-19--charlotte-view-the-emotion-code-with-betsy-lambert

We researched and found out that The Emotion Code is an alternative energy healing technique, authored by Dr. Bradley Nelson, that helps identify and release trapped emotions, which are negative and destructive emotional energies from past events. So, our next question was, of course, How do you identify them?

First of all let explain what the Emotion Code practitioners mean by trapped emotions. They believe these are emotions that are made of energy, just like the rest of the body and the physical universe, they exert an influence on the body’s tissues and can cause acute pain and even cancer. It is then obvious to believe that by releasing these trapped emotions makes conditions right for the body to heal so that physical and emotional difficulties often disappear or become much more manageable.

Betsy Lambert explains the process simply as "It’s like peeling an onion, it generally takes peeling off multiple layers to locate the root cause of a physical or emotional problem. These layers can come from any time in a person’s life or be inherited from many generations ago."

We can all agree that everyone has trapped emotions or “emotional baggage” from painful life events or inherited from our parents. This emotional baggage is very real, and although it's invisible, it can seriously interfere with your happiness and health.

Strong emotions get locked in your body and have no way to get out. They are cantaloupe-sized
balls of pure energy that can actually be felt, each vibrating at a unique frequency that is different
from the organ in which it is trapped. Strong emotions trapped alongside the vibrations of other
strong emotions can collectively imbalance their common organ or part of the body and contribute
to system imbalance, pain and subsequent disease. They can also cause depression, anxiety and
emotional problems.

How does it work?

Emotion Code Practitioners use a form of muscle testing that operates like a lie detector test in which a person is hooked up to sensitive electrodes and asked yes-and-no questions. The person's
answers generate very predictable and measurable electrical responses in the body.

Muscle testing allows us to access important information about our health as long as we ask the right questions relating to the body’s symptoms. Betsy uses a pendulum, which is actually a sophisticated tool that acts like an antenna to transmit vibrations from another person’s subconscious mind via their astral bodies’ connection to her physical body, which then triggers her muscle response. Betsy then becomes a proxy for her client whether they are in the same room or across the globe since proxy
testing does not require physical proximity.

Charlotte View hosts, Claudia Pureco and Denise Jones, agreed to go through the process in order to bring our own experience to the test and talk about it during our interview on Friday, April 19, 2013. She explained to us that she works exclusively by telephone and she would send results of each session to us, her clients, by email. We clearly understood that she makes no claims about The Emotion Code curing any sort of ailment, either physical or mental. The Emotion Code is not intended to be a substitute for any therapy or treatment with licensed physicians or psychologists. As an Emotion Code Practitioner, she is not a licensed health professional, and she does not diagnose, treat or cure medical conditions or provide medical advice.


Find out our experience and what we found on our own body and emotions. Was it useful? Was it hard? Was it real? What we liked about it and what we didn't.

Apr 17 - Charlotte View: Celebrating Earth Day with Shaklee 04/17 by Charlotte View Internet Radio | Blog Talk Radio

Apr 17 - Charlotte View: Celebrating Earth Day with Shaklee 04/17 by Charlotte View Internet Radio | Blog Talk Radio

On April 22, 2013, more than one billion people around the world will take part in the 43rd anniversary of Earth Day. From Beijing to Cairo, Melbourne to London, Rio to Johannesburg, New Delhi to New York, communities everywhere will voice their concerns for the planet, and take action to protect it.
Charlotte View in unison with Shaklee with the Dussingers will harness that power to show the world what individuals can do to support our mother earth. We hope to bring awareness across the globe, individuals, communities, organizations, and governments to acknowledge the amazing planet we call home and take action to protect it.
As the number one natural nutrition company in the U.S., Shaklee has been making people healthier for over 50 years. And they've made it part of their job to make the planet healthier along the way. They were doing it back when green was just a color and biodegradable was barely a word. In fact, as early as 1960, Shaklee made one of the first biodegradable household cleaners ever. And we were the first company in the world to obtain Climate Neutral™ certification and totally offset our CO2 emissions, resulting in a net zero impact on the environment.
Shaklee believes that health isn't just about what you put in your body, it's about everything around you. They bring you a full line of natural and nontoxic cleaning choices that are Safe for You, Your Home, and Your Planet called Get Clean.
We all want our homes to be clean, safe places to live -- sanctuaries away from the chaos and cares of the outside world. But toxic invaders may lurk inside your home, putting you and your family at risk.
Children are often more vulnerable than adults to the harmful effects of chemical pollutants because they are growing and developing rapidly. In addition, children’s behavior, including increased hand to mouth activity, a tendency to crawl and play in spaces that could be contaminated, and a lack of awareness about proper safety and sanitary habits, all put children at a higher risk. In some cases, childhood exposure to toxins can cause serious health damage to an individual later on in life.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has determine that common household products such as detergent, floor and furniture polish, paints, and various cleaning products for glass, wood, metal, ovens, toilets, and drains may contain hazardous chemicals such as ammonia, sulfuric and phosphoric acids, lye, chlorine, formaldehyde, and phenol. Air fresheners can also contain chemicals that are harmful to health. Art supplies, such as markers, paint, and glue, may also contain toxic materials. When not properly handled, these products can make the home environment a dangerous place, especially for kids.

Apr 5 - Charlotte View: Hypnotherapy and PTSD with Mary Prinz 04/05 by Charlotte View Internet Radio | Blog Talk Radio

Apr 5 - Charlotte View: Hypnotherapy and PSTD with Mary Prinz 04/05 by Charlotte View Internet Radio | Blog Talk Radio


When you think of hypnosis do you think of an evil looking man swinging a watch on a chain saying, You are getting sleepyyy?

If this is your immediate reaction to the idea of hypnosis your database needs to be updated! Stage hypnosis (and today, even stage hypnotists don’t use this method) is very different from clinical hypnosis during which a therapist gently and easily relaxes a client through guided visualization.

This Friday, April 5, at NOON, listen to Charlotte View interview with Hypnotherapist Mary Prinz and her success rate on treating PSTD. Call (805) 830-8344 or go to link below to listen with your computer

The reason hypnosis works so well has to do with the way it transforms the subconscious mind’s perceptions and beliefs. To begin with, hypnosis works from the assumption that the subconscious mind (the veritable source of all of our internal power) is the storage space of all our past experiences and emotions. In this incredibly vast warehouse, traumatic experiences are filed away on both physical and emotional levels, the stimulus of which can affect our immune system and health. Processing old traumas and the emotional charges attached to them allows a patient to find internal resources that begin the healing process.

Charlotte View's conversation with Mary Prinz. She is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Hypnotherapist, who has provided consultations, worked extensively on psychiatric emergency teams, private practices and outreach treatment teams (with families and their children).
Her audio CD, using cognitive therapy in the form of a meditation for treatment of combat post-traumatic stress disorder PSTD, is presently being researched at the VA Hospital in South Carolina. She has learned that life is never ending. She boldly and lovingly attempts to teach children not to be afraid, to live with good intentions, and to realize they are guided and cared for by those who love them, including heavenly beings.
Mary is also a published children's book author of the series "Into the Light". She focuses on helping children who have experienced loss, to understand, cope and accept the death of a relative, friend, or pet and to know that Heaven is not an illusion.  And that we are guided not only by our angels and other masters and teachers, but by our loved ones who are existing in the heavenly realms.
