  • Have Questions--Mother Nature has Answers & the blueprint for Health-Not Drugs

    in Health

    Medicines, both herbal and pharmaceutical, are big business. These days, Americans spend $200 billion per year on prescription drugs and $20 billion on herbs and other dietary supplements. Why is that? Well we believe that for the most part, people get lazy and let their doctor choose for them. Drugs are 62,000 times more likely to kill you than food or supplements from Mother Nature; According to the Council for Responsible Nutrition. Both food supplements and herbal remedies are in the 'super-safe' category of individual risk – meaning risk of death from their consumption is less than 1 in 10 million.
    In striking contrast, drugs are known to cause well over 125,000 deaths per year in the US when taken correctly as prescribed – yet the FDA allows fast-track approvals and countless new additions of poorly tested drugs to the marketplace that must later be withdrawn due to their lethal consequences.
    Besides drugs and hospital injuries, you're also more likely to die from being struck by lightning or drowning in your bathtub than having a lethal reaction to herbs or supplements. It is simply incomprehensible that any rational approach would seek to vilify supplements over drugs when the data in no way, shape or form supports it.

    Join us Wednesday, May 22, 2019 at 4:00 p.m. PST and 7:00 p.m. EST for a live show with host Denise Messenger.  Our guest is Lisa Orban.  We will be discussing her book, "I'd Rather Starve Than Cook-A Cookbook for People Who Hate to Cook."  Lisa was born in Galesburg, IL a long time ago on a hot summer day. Due to various shenanigans by the adults in her life, her time in Galesburg was short and the family moved to Quincy, IL where they settled down for a good long stay. Things were rolling along for a while inside the confines of Quincy, and Lisa rolled with them. There were several divorces, marriages, different schools, friends lost & gained, and many, many moves throughout all this activity. Until, quite unexpectedly, Lisa found herself in foster care at 16, much to her surprise. Upon turning 18, Lisa ran away as fast as she could to Phoenix, AZ where she lived for 3 years. Got married, had two sons, made many mistakes, and then eventually, ran for her life back to Quincy, where she still lives to this day.  Lisa went to college, earned an Associates in Psychology, raised her 5 kids, got married, and divorced, several times, bought a house and eventually settled down to live the life she always wanted, as the ringleader in a madhouse of anarchy. She now writes books, takes in human strays in need of help, travels, opened a publishing house, and pretty much does whatever she wants, and is quite happy about it. She became an author in 2015 with her first book, It'll Feel Better when it Quits Hurting, and hasn't stopped since.

  • Anosognosia, Denial or Disease?

    in Caregiving

    Sharon Hall will be joined by Rebekah Wilson, MSW (agingcarecoach.com), to discuss what makes families scratch their heads and be resentful, anosognosia. When someone is diagnosed with FTD, they often say there is nothing wrong with them, you are just trying to make them sick. They insist they can drive, grocery shop, work, and be totally independent. Yet, they have accidents, bring home only cookies from the store, get fired due to someone else's fault, and leave the front door wide open when they leave the house.
    We will discuss this weird word, anosognosia, and give advice on how to work around it when you have an FTDer who is "just fine" and will not give up driving, independence, or applying for jobs.We will realistically discuss what "might" work and definitely discuss what will "never" work.
