The Drs: Extreme Sports Camp For Autistic Kids
The Doctors wanted to shine a light on autism and find out more about how a sports program is working to change the lives of kids with the disorder. Dr Jennifer Berman hit the slopes in Aspen, Colorado, with Olympic medalist Jonny Moseley to see how the program works. Sally Bernard, whose son was diagnosed with Autism, co-founded the extreme sports camp to enhance social engagement and personal growth through athletics.
Dr Berman talked to Sally, who said one of the biggest challenges of someone with Autism is finding the “hook” that motivates them, because if you’re motivated that means you’re focused and paying attention. Linda Waissar’s daughter participates in the program, and Linda shared that her daughter is more engaged. Andrew Pollesel is a counselor and he absolutely loves what he does and knows he’s making a difference.

The Drs: Homemade Hair Treatments
The Doctors then shared some “hair hacks” from celebrity hair stylist Tera Rae Stephens, who explained that our hair is made up of 70% keratin. Over time, styling, treatments, and wear and tear can reduce keratin and cause dull, lifeless locks. You can improve your hair with a protein treatment at home. Mix about a tablespoon of protein powder with about a tablespoon of your favorite conditioner. Apply it to washed hair and leave it on for about 20 minutes.
Hemp seed oil is also great for your scalp and hair. Stephens recommended massaging it into your scalp to promote growth before shampooing, about once a week. Also, when it’s cold and dry out, we’re often left with static, frizzy hair. You can use dryer sheets to tame static and make your hair smooth again.
“Love” was the word of the day and you can use the word love to enter for a chance to win a collection of Keranique hair products. What do you do to make your hair look and feel beautiful? Any home remedies to share?
The Drs: Angelina Jolie Helping Taylor Swift?
The Doctors then shared their News in 2:00, starting by sharing that when Angelina Jolie discovered she had a genetic predisposition to breast and ovarian cancer, she had a preventative double mastectomy. Two years later, she had her ovaries and Fallopian tubes removed as a preventative measure as well. She shared the news in hopes of helping other women cope with difficult medical decisions. Now, there are reports that Taylor Swift reached out to Jolie when her mother was diagnosed with cancer.
Swift reportedly admires Jolie for raising awareness about cancer and wants to take a lead as well to help save lives. Were you inspired by Angelina Jolie’s preventative decisions? Do you think she’s a good person for Taylor Swift to talk to?
The Drs: Retired NFL Players Settlement
The Doctors then shared that many retired NFL players have complained about brain damage as a result of concussions sustained while playing football. Now, a federal judge has approved a $1 billion settlement agreement and benefits could begin this summer, with individual settlement agreements totaling close to $200,000. A repeal by the NFL could postpone payments to players indefinitely. One former player who now has Lou Gehrig’s disease said, “Many retired players don’t have much time left.”

The Drs: Shaving Cream To Remove Foundation Stains?
The Doctors then shared something in your shower that can help get rid of foundation stains on the neckline of your shirt: shaving cream. Just spray some of the cream onto the neckline, rub it into the stain and let it soak in, then rinse the cream off. An agent in the cream breaks down the grease in the stains, and the cream penetrates the fabric efficiently.
