WHAT THE HECK IS SIBO?


I’m sure these days you may have heard people mention SIBO.  No, it’s not some robot or mechanical part.  And it can’t be found in a theatre near you.  It’s actually found in you and SIBO stands for Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth.  Sounds delightful doesn’t it?  Not at all!

Get Better

Posted by Allimax on 8/1/2017
GET BETTER is a handmade feature film about a week in the life of Ellie and Roy Alexander—daughter and chronically ill father. “I do not believe that sheer suffering teaches. If suffering alone taught, all the world would be wise, since everyone suffers. To suffering must be added mourning, understanding, patience, love, openness and the willingness to remain vulnerable.” - Joseph Addison GET BETTER was written and directed by personal filmmakers, Chris and Emily White. It was made entirely with cash and in-kind contributions from friends and family. GET BETTER stars Marisa Viola as "Ellie," Robert Linder as "Roy," Monica Wyche as "Stu," Chris White as "Mike," and Lise Anzelone as "Jane." Cinematography by Alan Ray. Edited by Jeter Rhodes.

Invisible Illness

Posted by Allimax on 9/1/2017
Emily watched in silence and shame as her dad struggled with Chronic Lyme Disease for over ten years. After his death in 2007, she began to question: What makes some diseases more culturally visible, and more culturally acceptable, than others? 

In her talk, she explains that not all diseases are created equal and how narrative medicine can help right these inequalities.
