Compulsive engagement in rewarding stimuli despite adverse consequences
Have you noticed local businesses are starting to roll out the holiday shopping deals, even though we just got through Back to School? Jon Hurst, President of the Retailers Association of Massachusetts, joins Nichole on the show to talk about why that's happening. Jon also has an update on how businesses are faring through high inflation and threats of an upcoming recession. September is National Recovery Month, and The Phoenix has open doors for anyone who wants to take that first step to getting sober. The nationwide group has a big presence here in the Northeast, and Regional Director Sydney Durand has details on the "active community" they have to offer for anyone who wants it.
In this podcast, we discuss the signs and effects of compulsive spending and debting.We learn that compulsive spending and debting:Are addictions much like any other – repetitive behaviour that causes harm, and that does not stop unless arrested by another force.Reveal themselves in many different ways, usually by some form of vagueness and denial.Are fundamentally spiritual problems that require a spiritual solution, for the idea that we will not be held accountable runs deep.Can result in financial ruin which affects the entire family; compulsive spending by one person can bring the whole family down.Is treatable in the form of Debtors Anonymous which was founded to help those with an addiction to spending and its evil helper: unrestrained debting.
THE THESIS: The people who run Joe Biden are showing everyone he is irrelevant to them. THE SCRIPTURE & SCRIPTURAL RESOURCES: We have a senile Figurehead who babbles about issuing policy statements his supposed emplyees ignore and overrule. The Bible tells us the story of King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, who has driven by God into the fields where he grazed on grass like a cow for many years. God Humbles Nebuchadnezzar (Daniel 4) THE NEWS & COMMENT: The State of collapse in our fallen world: Here is a person who has [her] job because [she] somehow knows [she] is a woman, [she] identifies as black and is sexually attracted to [other] women; this person gets to go on TV and overrule the “President” for whom [she] works. [AUDIO] - WH @PressSec says Biden didn't actually mean the Covid pandemic is over despite saying it: "Just to step back for a second, when he made those comments, he was walking through the Detroit car show, the halls of the Detroit car show, he was looking around." This is hard an isolated incident. The Figurehead is of no consequence to the people who run the Country. Do Biden's words even matter anymore? As his staff once again rushes in to clarify, it isn't clear who's running the country On the other end of the spectrum is Ron DeSantis. He is making The Party live in the world they are trying to create for us and their response are both hilarious and useful. If God affords DeSantis the opportunity to debate the Figurehead, the Governor will be able to show the emptiness of the Party's promises to the people. [AUDIO] - WATCH: Gov. DeSantis after Rep. Jeffries compared him to a human trafficker: “When Biden is flying these people all over the fruited plain in the middle of the night, I didn't hear a peep out of those people!” The next thing Governor DeSantis should do is get copies of the pornographic books The Partry is shoving down the throats of parents and kids and have them always on hand to show to cameras when he is attacked as a book banner. [AUDIO] - CNN's Jake Tapper helps PEN America touts its study of "book bans" in schools because the conservatives don't like LGBTQ/CRT themes. But guess what? CNN won't put the actual graphic images of oral sex et cetera from books on screen so people can understand the fuss. Curating books is not banning. THIS is banning “GaysAgainstGrooming”: BREAKING: After being banned by @PayPal and @Venmo less than 24 hours ago, We have JUST been banned by @Google! Big tech is coordinating a massive attack on our organization for trying to protect children. THIS IS INSANE. In case you have friends who have been conned into the belief that this “sex-ed” is about “good touch” and “bad touch”, show them this: [VIDEO] - A teacher friend and I looked through some of the “sex-ed” curriculum in the separate Country of Washington. Watch and see what we discovered. WARNING: Language, images https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uBrS4Dx8wtI THE LISTENERS: Edward I never watch Trump TV shows , I thought he was a crude inarticulate speaker and a number one A hole. I voted for him twice and his policies worked. The only way to explain it; is my what I learned in my 20 years in the Marine Corps: Jerks, nasty , uncouth people win wars . The good marines were mainly jerks. As General Chesty Puller said. “ Until you served brig time your not a true marine”. And during an inspection at Camp Pendleton .” I had enough of this, take me to brig where the real marines are”. All Chesty did was earn 6 Navy Crosses the second highest combat award. Now in 2022 I wish Donald Trump would just go away and play golf. He is to old. 75 to me is terminal for public office. I am 89. —- —- Janine: "Marketing with Terror"--Excellent points in both hours of the show. They brought to mind how much I try to get generations younger than mine to watch "Scrooged". The opening when Bill Murray's character runs his ad for the Christmas show. It shows the horror and speaks in frightful tones and sounds of Acid Rain, Drug Addiction, International terrorism, Freeway killers. Maybe Obama is actually consulting with Bill? Fear isn't new. And it works! Got George HW Bush, establishment member, in the White House. --- --- --- --- Paul: I don't understand why this comparison isn't being made. Hotels could be forced to house the homeless. https://radio.foxnews.com/2022/08/31/la-hotels-could-be-forced-to-house-the-homeless/ Shelter coordinator claims Martha's Vineyard has no housing for migrants https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/watch-shelter-coordinator-marthas-vineyard-no-housing-migrants Blessings, Paul from Port Orchard --- --- --- --- Mark Hello Todd it is 1230am and The Spirit is not letting me sleep so I must share this with you. I beg your forgiveness. I get confused when you talk about God, you talk about the trinity yet you separate them as different and it is so frustrating to where I want to find another podcast. I dont want to though, you try so hard and I have to respect that, so I need to share with you what The Spirit is saying to me. First I dont agree with the term trinity, it is a word that Catholics used to describe God. I do not agree with anything Catholics teach. For instance, the bible says not to call any man father, it also tells us not to bow to any graven image, and most important, go before Jesus to repent of sins and nothing about moving beads in your hand praying to Mother Mary. I believe in God The Spirit, and God The Flesh. If God is all Spirit, then it makes sense that The Holy Spirit is all God, and Jesus in the flesh is all God, and Spirit. In Roman times they believed in a whole mess o gods, these gods had children called demi gods. How do you explain to those who have such beliefs to where it makes sense. God was born of the flesh and had all the power of Himself. There is only one God, His name is Jesus and He has adopted us into His family. We are His children, like Israel, He is also our brother, like Israel He brought them out of Egypt, now He brings us out of bondage from an everlasting fire. By the way satan does not control anything in Hell. Hell is his punishment. Satan controls the Earth now, I am so amazed at all who follow him, even in the churches. So many strong healthy men bowing down to mandates. You think of Shadrack, Meshack, and Abednigo. ( im to tired to look up spelling) There were a lot of Israelites in the crowd of those bowing to the kings nebbys image for fear of burning, church today is no different. Cowards. --- ---- ---- Tracy Todd!!! I tend to be long winded so I will do my very best to keep it short. Ha! 1. I did the 2 rounds at McD's!!!! Shamefully on my way home from small group (yikes) it was a long way from home. I swear I might have done it 3 times!!!! First in Graham, then Sumner and finally Auburn. Oh so scary. But I laughed when you stated it on your cast today!!!! Here's my double whammy for you brother…. Ready… 2. I signed up for Sota!!! Yay!!!! 3. Bought my Bonefrog today. Now in all fairness, I don't drink coffee so I buy it for those I love which reminds me… please give Mr. Crookshank an idea… Christmas pack???? 3 packs of 12 oz. Light dark and medium for $50???? BAM! Corporate Christmas presents done!!!! I'm just saying. Love you brother. PS. Auburn Green River basin is infested with those who refuse to work and get Riverfront RV/Camping for free while KC officials do nothing except spend our tax dollars. Can't wait until God says it's ok to leave the separate country of Washington. - Right girl on the wrong coast!!! --- --- --- --- Tom Want to grow your show?? Todd I love you but todays show made want to cry. Yes you have great ideas but listening to you sometimes is like the joke of the coach that has a great half time speech and then the door to the field is locked. Where is the tea party? Where is the third party. Where is the list of companies that eschew woke and want to start the parallel economy?? Use your power and vast influence to let us all help. Publish and talk about non woke alternatives. Not just your sponsors. I would love to have a list of woke companies that we should all avoid. If you made such a list it would something all your listeners could get behind. Many would share your list and share your show. Secondly where is the tea party. All us “ patriots” are putting all our eggs in the Trump basket. But he is the only one. Where will america be if they finally get to trump. We all know that the republicans are worthless and feckless , but what and where is our alternative?? Use your power and influence to make and get a woke list generated . Talk about it and your listeners will share it with their friends. Talk about a third party and your listeners will share your ideas with their friends. Yes you have great ideas of what needs to be done but as my dad always said “ the steam that blows the whistle, never turns the wheel” . Please use your resources and influence to help us make the needed changes. Keep up the good work, Good job, Tom in Ellensburg.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

He joins the long list of life coaches we've had on the show, but Skip has a unique and honest story to tell.He joins us in this episode where he tells us about how he had a troubled 20 years or so as a crystal meth, Crack Cocaine drug addict who lost it all. In the midst of hitting ‘rock bottom' Skip also had to deal with testing positive for HIV.He knew what it was like to be trapped by the addiction of drugs, as a drug addict in Chicago. He tells his story of how he one day decided that he is no longer going to continue digging a hole for himself, he was fully intent on becoming a sober version of himself for life. He didn't look back – Today he is still sober, over 15 years now, and helping others battling the same issue he was dealing with 20 years ago. He is now an Addiction Recovery Coach who is well-received by many battling the real and unsettling demons of addiction.mysuccess.coach/

In this podcast, we discuss the pros and cons of legalising the recreational use of marijuana.We learn that:Despite the economic and taxation lift that is evident in the sale of marijuana, the health costs far outweigh the benefits.The data supporting decreased marijuana use among teens due to legalisation is thin. Marijuana use is highest in states that have legalised its recreational use.Although there is evidence that the violent crime rate may be lower in states where marijuana is legal, it brings with it dire mental health consequences, the full weight of which have not been measured.Although the public overwhelmingly supports legalisation of marijuana, all major public health associations oppose it, seeing it as a dangerous drug and a menace to our people.We do not yet understand the long-term consequences of prolonged marijuana use. This author sides with the clinical evidence and opposes further legalisation.Where I want to see a let-up is in the unnecessarily harsh prosecution and conviction of citizens who happen to possess a small amount of marijuana.
Two years ago at the height of the pandemic I interviewed recovery advocate Tim Ryan best know from the A&E Network series "Dope Man" in 2017. We discussed the issues people in recovery faced of not liking attending 12 step meetings on zoom for example. (You can listen to our episode, Season 1 Episode 5- https://spotifyanchor-web.app.link/e/oAQ2ifbemtb ) What I learned from Tim over 2 years later, not much as changed in terms of what he is seeing. People are continuing to die from drug addiction. #addiction #drugaddiction is one of my passion's related to social work. I write about addiction in the upcoming book "Latinx in Social Work Volume 2" launching October 5th. Mr. Ryan has a book titled From Dope to Hope: A Man in Recovery which is available on Amazon. You can follow him on his website dopetohope.com Check out my poetry book also on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle.

Matt Finch discusses how alcohol and drugs are used as resources for confidence, euphoria, and socialization. The alcohol and drug use can easily accelerate and can be abused quickly. When the consequences begin to heavily outweigh the benefits, the substances become exhausted resources.

Scale Your Business To 6, 7 Even 8 Figures & Dominate Social Media Platforms At Our Live Event, October 14-16 Can you fail your way to success ? The answer is yes, but it's not what you think. So often do we lie to ourselves out of fears and limiting beliefs that talk us out of what feels right for our soul. We sabotage ourselves in creating courses, videos, or even having uncomfortable conversations because the unknown is terrifying. It's easier to stay where we are then to step beyond our edges, despite knowing something is waiting for us on the other side. That's why In today's episode, I brought on Ben Curtis to share his comeback story from drug addiction to running a seven-figure coaching business. You might recognize him as Steve the Dell Dude," but in the last 20 years he's gone on to become internationally recognized and critically acclaimed for his work not only as an actor, but as a speaker and coach. Listen in as Ben speaks about his comeback story, authenticity, and commitment in showing up to the world as your best self so you can scale with clarity.

In this podcast, we answer the question “Is recovery from active alcoholism possible?”We learn that:There is little, if any, doubt that recovery from even the most profound state of addiction or alcoholism is not only possible, but probable given certain conditions.The best way to look at relapse prevention, given that relapse is what families fear most, is to learn that a change in thinking is at the heart of recovery.The thinking changes from the inability to deal with life events and emotions without drugs or alcohol to learning how to embrace life and emotions exactly as they are presented.Commitment separates those who make it and those who relapse. Commitment means action based on the principles of honesty, sacrifice, and giving, as opposed to using and taking selfishly.What at first seemed like just a way to get clean and sober, recovery comes to mean a new world of opportunity in which one flourishes as a complete human being.

A new MP3 sermon from Union Grove Baptist is now available on SermonAudio with the following details: Title: Drug Addiction & Prophecy Subtitle: Globalism: News & Prophecy Speaker: Dr. Rich Schmidt Broadcaster: Union Grove Baptist Event: Radio Broadcast Date: 9/3/2022 Length: 27 min.
Horniness ahead! Seth and Marc talk about a topic they could go on and on about for days... Mariah Carey. On the brink, and in the process, of getting out from clutches of her husband Tony Mottola, she was reformed and ready to get horny. But this song sounds like it might be more about something more addictive than love... and we don't mean honey.
Today we are going to wrap up the week with a song from 1997 called, Semi-Charmed Life by Third Eye Blind. Just as a warning, this song is about addiction, so there are drug references and it is probably not a song fro young kids. With all that...enjoy the episode today. The music on the podcast is from John Nugent. John is a Chicagoland area musician who has been a real blessing to Tabor Church. Support the show
In this podcast, we discuss the reality vs. the myths of what it takes to get an alcoholic or addict to ask for help.We learn that:Among the most dangerous myths is the notion that an addict or alcoholic will not seek help until they are ready.Another dangerous myth is the idea that addicts/alcoholics have to hit bottom before they are ready. We are asking the wrong questions.What we should ask is: “What can we do to get them to accept help?” Standing by waiting for them to get ready might be as good as a death sentence for some of them.Families of loved ones overcome by addiction must first learn as much as they can about the disease, lest they themselves fall prey to dangerous assumptions.Interventions can be formal or informal. No matter the immediate outcome, the family has learned a lot and the seed has been planted for a future attempt.
New 2022 - Butchered by “Healthcare”: What to Do About Doctors, Big Pharma, and Corrupt Government Ruining Your Health and Medical Care - Robert Yoho, MD Dr. Robert Yoho • http://www.robertyohoauthor.com • Book - Butchered by “Heathcare” #RobertYoho #BigPharma #HealthCare #BigGovernement Dr. Robert Yoho is an author and accomplished retired Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon. His Book, Butchered by “Heathcare”: What to Do About Doctors, Big Pharma, and Corrupt Government Ruining Your Health and Medical Care. Healthcare is the top cause of all our overdue debts and personal bankruptcy. Our medical spending per person is double that of other countries', but fully half the treatments are ineffective or harmful. Immense, predatory industries such as angioplasty and coronary artery bypass surgery victimize us. These procedures cause complications and deaths, but few patients survive even a day longer. Most back and endoscopic knee surgeries are equally worthless. Seventy percent of us are on prescriptions, and 20 percent take over five. One in six uses psychiatric medicine, which commonly causes irreversible brain damage and premature death. Millions are now addicted to prescription opioids. Ninety-three thousand people died in 2020 from overdoses. The FDA allows big Pharma to falsify the studies required to patent drugs. These corporations hire armies of ghostwriters to stuff websites and medical journal articles with marketing lies. Finding the truth is now nearly impossible. But all this gets overlooked as the companies pay billions of dollars in criminal settlements nearly every year. Money short-circuits everyone's integrity, but there is an alternative. Patients and doctors can still prevail. Learn the system, and you can too by reading his book Butchered by “Heathcare. Dr Robert Yoho grew up in Kent Ohio. He was an Eagle Scout and a Judo wrestler. Went to Oberlin College and Case Western Reserve Univ. Medical School. In 2019 Dr Yoho retired from his medical and surgical practice. He now is a full time writer and speaker. No longer responsible for patient care he is able to write full time without conflicts of interest.

In this podcast, we discuss that there are many myths surrounding addiction and alcoholism, some of them dangerous.We learn that:Alcoholism by any count is the single biggest drug problem in the US and we dare say around the globe.One of the most damaging myths is to allow the addict or alcoholic to hit bottom before they are ready to accept help. This attitude can kill, for some addicts drop to the point of death.Addiction is a family disease where the addiction pulls the whole family down along with the addict, and it is, therefore, the obligation of the family to get help for themselves first.Treatment works. If the individual takes responsibility for his or her own recovery in the context of a 12-step program such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous, the odds of long-term sobriety are greatly improved.

How Big Pharma Broke American Health Care - John Abramson, MD Dr. John Abramson, M.D • https://hcp.hms.harvard.edu/people/john-david-abramson• Book – Sickening #JohnAbramson #BigPharma #AmericanHealthCare #HealthCarePolicy Dr. John Abramson, M.D. is an author and medical doctor and has served as a family physician for over 20 years. His recently release book Sickening How Big Pharma Broke American Health Care and How We Can Repair It. Is about the inside story of how Big Pharma's relentless pursuit of ever-higher profits corrupts medical knowledge—misleading doctors, misdirecting American health care, and harming our health. The United States spends an excess $1.5 trillion annually on health care compared to other wealthy countries—yet the amount of time that Americans live in good health ranks a lowly 68th in the world. At the heart of the problem is Big Pharma, which funds most clinical trials and therefore controls the research agenda, withholds the real data from those trials as corporate secrets, and shapes most of the information relied upon by health care professionals. In this no-holds-barred exposé, Dr. John Abramson—one of the foremost experts on the drug industry's deceptive tactics—combines patient stories with what he learned during many years of serving as an expert in national drug litigation to reveal the tangled web of financial interests at the heart of the dysfunction in our health-care system. For example, one of pharma's best-kept secrets is that the peer reviewers charged with ensuring the accuracy and completeness of the clinical trial reports published in medical journals do not even have access to complete data and must rely on manufacturer-influenced summaries. Likewise for the experts who write the clinical practice guidelines that define our standards of care. The result of years of research and privileged access to the inner workings of the U.S. medical-industrial complex, Sickening shines a light on the dark underbelly of American health care—and presents a path toward genuine reform. John Abramson MD, He was twice voted “best doctor” in his area by readers of the local newspapers and three times selected by his peers as one of a handful of best family practitioners in Massachusetts. He has been on the faculty at Harvard Medical School for over 15 years, where he has taught primary care and currently teaches health care policy. He currently consults as an expert in litigation involving the pharmaceutical industry and has served as an unpaid consultant to the FBI and Department of Justice. Dr. Abramson has appeared on more than 65 national television shows, including two appearances on the Today Show, and more recently on the Dr. Oz Show. He was written op-ed pieces in the New York Times LA Times and others. He is the author of the national best-selling book Overdo$ed America.To Contact Dr John Abramson MD, go to https://hcp.hms.harvard.edu/people/john-david-abramson CLICK HERE - To Checkout Our MEMBERSHIP CLUB: http://www.realtruthtalks.com • Social Media ChannelsFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/TRTAHConferenceInstagram : https://www.instagram.com/therealtruthabouthealth/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/RTAHealth Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/company/the-real-truth-about-health-conference/ Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/c/TheRealTruthAboutHealth • Check out our Podcasts Visit us on Apple Podcast and Itunes search: The Real Truth About Health Free 17 Day Live Online Conference Podcast Amazon: https://music.amazon.com/podcasts/23a037be-99dd-4099-b9e0-1cad50774b5a/real-truth-about-health-live-online-conference-podcastSpotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/0RZbS2BafJIEzHYyThm83J Google:https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cHM6Ly9mZWVkcy5zaW1wbGVjYXN0LmNvbS8yM0ZqRWNTMg%3D%3DStitcher: https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/real-truth-about-health-live-online-conference-podcastAudacy: https://go.audacy.com/partner-podcast-listen-real-truth-about-health-live-online-conference-podcastiHeartRadio: https://www.iheart.com/podcast/269-real-truth-about-health-li-85932821/ Deezer: https://www.deezer.com/us/show/2867272 Reason: https://reason.fm/podcast/real-truth-about-health-live-online-conference-podcast • Other Video ChannelsYoutube:https://www.youtube.com/c/TheRealTruthAboutHealthVimeo:https://vimeo.com/channels/1733189Rumble: https://rumble.com/c/c-1111513 Facebook:https://www.facebook.com/TRTAHConference/videos/?ref=page_internal DailyMotion: https://www.dailymotion.com/TheRealTruthAboutHealth BitChute:https://www.bitchute.com/channel/JQryXTPDOMih/ Disclaimer:Medical and Health information changes constantly.

Hello Beautiful People!CONNECT WITH JENNAH-LOUISEWork With Me | https://www.jennahlouise.com.auInstagram | https://www.instagram.com/jennah_louiseCONNECT WITH KATEBook: Beating Drug Addiction in Tehran | https://amzn.to/3cgwSUq SUMMARYOn today's podcast we have Kate Dolan. Kate is a Professor of Public Health at the University of New South Wales. She has carried out over 100 studies, has published over 270 publications.and has received over $39 million in research funding. She is the author of the recent book, ‘Beating Drug Addiction in Tehran' which is focused on her journey of establishing the first methadone women's clinic for female drug users in Iran.What I personally love about this conversation is Kate's proof of courage, tenacity and the fulfilment of opportunity. Kate is one inspirational woman who has clearly made and continues to make a significant impact in this world when it comes to public health. We discuss the mindset of commitment, the ability in seeing projects through despite large obstacles, she shares emotive stories of women from the clinic in Iran, and how her direct experiences challenged her assumption of Iran and its people that has now developed new insights. We also discuss Kate's involvement in starting the first needle and syringe program in Australia, which was the third in the world. Kate is certainly a woman that is not afraid to dream big and achieve big goals. #jennahlouise #tobehumanpodcast
Corporate Wealth Or Public Health? - Robert Lustig, MD Dr. Robert Lustig • http://www.robertlustig.com • Book - Metabolical #RobertLustig #BigFood #BigPharma #BigGovernment Dr. Robert Lustig is a The New York Times bestselling author and author of Metabolical: The Lure and the Lies of Processed Food, Nutrition, and Modern Medicine and a Professor of Pediatric Endocrinology at the University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Robert Lustig, a pediatric neuroendocrinologist who has long been on the cutting edge of medicine and science, challenges our current healthcare paradigm which has gone off the rails under the influence of Big Food, Big Pharma, and Big Government.You can't solve a problem if you don't know what the problem is. One of Lustig's singular gifts as a communicator is his ability to “connect the dots” for the general reader, in order to unpack the scientific data and concepts behind his arguments, as he tells the “real story of food” and “the story of real food.” Metabolical weaves the interconnected strands of nutrition, health/disease, medicine, environment, and society into a completely new fabric by proving on a scientific basis a series of iconoclastic revelations, among them: • Medicine for chronic disease treats symptoms, not the disease itself• You can diagnose your own biochemical profile • Chronic diseases are not "druggable," but they are "foodable" • Processed food isn't just toxic, it's addictive• The war between vegan and keto is a false war—the combatants are on the same side• Big Food, Big Pharma, and Big Government are on the other side Making the case that food is the only lever we have to effect biochemical change to improve our health, Lustig explains what to eat based on two novel criteria: protect the liver, and feed the gut. He insists that if we do not fix our food and change the way we eat, we will continue to court chronic disease, bankrupt healthcare, and threaten the planet. But there is hope: this book explains what's needed to fix all three.Dr. Lustig has become a leading public health authority on the impact sugar has on fueling the diabetes, obesity and metabolic syndrome epidemics, and on addressing changes in the food environment to reverse these chronic diseases. A native of Brooklyn, New York, graduated from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and received his M.D. from Cornell University Medical College. He completed his pediatric residency at St. Louis Children's Hospital, his clinical fellowship at UCSF, his post-doctoral fellow and research associate in neuroendocrinology at The Rockefeller University. He has been a faculty member at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and the University of Tennessee, Memphis. In 2013, Dr. Lustig received his Masters in the study of Law from University of California, Hastings to enable him to impact the food industry through policy change.Dr. Lustig has authored 125 peer-reviewed articles and 73 reviews. He has mentored 20 pediatric endocrine fellows, and trained numerous other allied health professionals. He provides endocrinologic support to several protocols of the Children's Oncology Group. He is the former Chairman of the Ad hoc Obesity Task Force of the Lawson Wilkins Pediatric Endocrine Society, a member of the Pediatric Obesity Practice Guidelines Subcommittee of The Endocrine Society, a member of the Obesity Task Force of the Endocrine Society, a member of the Pediatric Obesity Devices Committee of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, a member of the Bay Area Board of Directors of the American Heart Association, and a member of the Steering Committee of Health Foods, Healthy Kids of the Culinary Institute of America. He also consults for several childhood obesity advocacy groups.Dr. Lustig lives in San Francisco with his wife Julie and two daughters. Spare time (what little there is) is spent cooking, theater-going, and traveling.To Contact Dr Robert Lustig, M.D. go to robertlustig.com CLICK HERE - To Checkout Our MEMBERSHIP CLUB: http://www.realtruthtalks.com • Social Media ChannelsFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/TRTAHConferenceInstagram : https://www.instagram.com/therealtruthabouthealth/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/RTAHealth Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/company/the-real-truth-about-health-conference/ Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/c/TheRealTruthAboutHealth Disclaimer:Medical and Health information changes constantly.

In this podcast, we discuss the deadly impact of drugs, especially opioids, and what a family can do to help themselves and help society reverse the trend that has taken over 100,000 lives in just one year.We learn that:There is indeed an epidemic of drug abuse that will continue to take 100,000 lives by overdose unless we unite and take action to reverse course.Synthetic opioids, primarily fentanyl drugs, are embedded now into most other drugs as a means of creating an addiction to the drug itself.An overdose antidote called NARCAN has already saved the lives of thousands of individuals who might otherwise have died without it.The state of addictions training among medical professionals in the US is appalling. Boston University's Medical School is the only known example of weaving addictions education into all four years of study.Family members can do a lot to help society reverse the trend in overdose deaths, to help other families heal, and to become a part of something greater than themselves.

We explore the question: Is alcoholism different than drug addiction? Further, are process or behavioral addictions different than drug addictions? Do these different ways of experiencing obsession and compulsion actually act differently in the body? Not the substances themselves, but the addictive process, or features? How does the half-life of alcohol possibly impact the difference? Is the way society views alcohol, versus the way society views drugs, the only difference?

This podcast is the second in the series on the deadly effects of alcohol and the disease of alcoholism.We learn that:Alcohol may be the deadliest drug on the planet because it is easily available, cheap and warps the mind at just .08% of the substance in the blood.A few alcoholics are the real troublemakers. Ten percent drink half the alcohol and likely kill more than 50% of the 18,000 people killed by drunk drivers every year.An amazing 38 million people binge drink every month, on average 4 times a month at 7 drinks or more each time out. There is not much difference by age or education. It is an equal-opportunity epidemic.There is really only one good bit of news: alcoholism is highly treatable and most of its effects are reversible with the right treatment and a commitment by the alcoholic to become healthy again.
Our next guest is Kathi Sohn, a distinguished Naval War College graduate who retired from a 36-year federal career to continue the powerful healing work created by her late husband, David William Sohn, called the Body Memory Process (BMP). This approach teaches childhood vow formation and facilitates vow discovery and release. For over 30 years, hundreds of clients have experienced profound life changes because of BMP, including release from health issues like diabetes and migraines, improved relationships and financial gain. Kathi now promotes her multi-media DIY BMP course and continues to promote the work to affect social-level healing. In episode number 282, we find out why Kathi chose University of Maryland, what was her motivation to get a Masters Degree at US Naval War College, what is Body Memory Process, what are some interesting case studies with Body Memory Process, what vows can get you into trouble in college, how childhood vow awareness prevent suicide and drug addiction, what is the surprising body memory reason you can't seem to make a relationship work, the body memory reason why we have migraines, and how we can increase our income by discovering our vows about money.

Ray entered Restoration Ministries when it became very clear to him that God called him to be here. After graduating from Harvey House in 1989, he worked an outside job while continuing to live at Harvey House. He eventually became the Harvey House Director. In 1997, when the executive director left for another position, Ray was entrusted as Acting Director for months until the board realized he was the best man for the job. He was named Executive Director of Restoration Ministries in 1998. Since then, Ray has helped over 200 men and women successfully complete their recovery programs. In 1991, Ray started a youth group for teenagers in Harvey and surrounding suburbs, and he became a youth pastor at Spirit of God Fellowship in South Holland. He was also instrumental in starting Restoration Ministries' youth outreach programs. Ray is an elected member of Thornton Township District 205 School Board, representing the many families who entrust in him their children's education. In May of 2020, Ray suffered a stroke. When his family asked for prayers on social media, more than a thousand replied that they were praying for him. People who Ray had cared for, mentored, and inspired over the years—plus their families, their children, and friends—all prayed for Ray's recovery. Ray is back spending three days a week in his office, counseling Harvey House residents.

First trial to prove a diet supplement can prevent hereditary cancer Newcastle University (UK), July 25, 2022 A trial in people with high hereditary risk of a wide range of cancers has shown a major preventive effect from resistant starch, found in a wide range of foods such as oats, breakfast cereal, cooked and cooled pasta or rice, peas and beans, and slightly green bananas. An international trial—known as CAPP2—involved almost 1000 patients with Lynch syndrome from around the world, and revealed that a regular dose of resistant starch, also known as fermentable fiber, taken for an average of two years, did not affect cancers in the bowel but did reduce cancers in other parts of the body by more than half. This effect was particularly pronounced for upper gastrointestinal cancers including esophageal, gastric, biliary tract, pancreatic and duodenum cancers. The astonishing effect was seen to last for 10 years after stopping taking the supplement. "We found that resistant starch reduces a range of cancers by over 60%. The effect was most obvious in the upper part of the gut," explained Professor John Mathers, professor of Human Nutrition at Newcastle University. "This is important as cancers of the upper GI tract are difficult to diagnose and often are not caught early on. "Resistant starch can be taken as a powder supplement and is found naturally in peas, beans, oats and other starchy foods. The dose used in the trial is equivalent to eating a daily banana; before they become too ripe and soft, the starch in bananas resists breakdown and reaches the bowel where it can change the type of bacteria that live there. "Resistant starch is a type of carbohydrate that isn't digested in your small intestine; instead it ferments in your large intestine, feeding beneficial gut bacteria—it acts, in effect, like dietary fiber in your digestive system. This type of starch has several health benefits and fewer calories than regular starch. We think that resistant starch may reduce cancer development by changing the bacterial metabolism of bile acids and to reduce those types of bile acids that can damage our DNA and eventually cause cancer. However, this needs further research." New study finds lowest risk of death was among adults who exercised 150-600 minutes/week Harvard School of Public Health, July 25, 2022 An analysis of more than 100,000 participants over a 30-year follow-up period found that adults who perform two to four times the currently recommended amount of moderate or vigorous physical activity per week have a significantly reduced risk of mortality, according to new research published today in the American Heart Association's journal Circulation. The reduction was 21-23% for people who engaged in two to four times the recommended amount of vigorous physical activity, and 26-31% for people who engaged in two to four times the recommended amount of moderate physical activity each week. In 2018, the United States Department of Health and Human Services' Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommended that adults engage in at least 150-300 minutes/week of moderate physical activity or 75-150 minutes/week of vigorous physical activity, or an equivalent combination of both intensities. The analysis also found: Participants who met the guidelines for vigorous physical activity had an observed 31% lower risk of CVD mortality and 15% lower risk of non-CVD mortality, for an overall 19% lower risk of death from all causes. Participants who met the guidelines for moderate physical activity had an observed 22-25% lower risk of CVD mortality and 19-20% lower risk of non-CVD mortality, for an overall 20-21% lower risk of death from all causes. Participants who performed two to four times above the recommended amount of long-term vigorous physical activity (150-300 min/week) had an observed 27-33% lower risk of CVD mortality and 19% non-CVD mortality, for an overall 21-23% lower risk of death from all causes. Participants who performed two to four times above the recommended amount of moderate physical activity (300-600 min/week) had an observed 28-38% lower risk of CVD mortality and 25-27% non-CVD mortality, for an overall 26-31% lower risk of mortality from all causes. In addition, no harmful cardiovascular health effects were found among the adults who reported engaging in more than four times the recommended minimum activity levels. Previous studies have found evidence that long-term, high-intensity, endurance exercise, such as marathons, triathlons and long-distance bicycle races, may increase the risk of adverse cardiovascular events, including myocardial fibrosis, coronary artery calcification, atrial fibrillation and sudden cardiac death. Treating dementia with the healing waves of sound Ultrasound applied to the brain could help treat patients with dementia. Tohoku University (Japan), July 20, 2022 Ultrasound waves applied to the whole brain improve cognitive dysfunction in mice with conditions simulating vascular dementia and Alzheimer's disease. The research, conducted by scientists at Tohoku University in Japan, suggests that this type of therapy may also benefit humans. The team, led by cardiologist Hiroaki Shimokawa, found that applying low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) to the whole brain of the mice improved blood vessel formation and nerve cell regeneration without having obvious side effects. "The LIPUS therapy is a non-invasive physiotherapy that could apply to high-risk elderly patients without the need for surgery or anaesthesia, and could be used repeatedly," says Shimokawa. The Tohoku University team found that cognitive impairment markedly improved in mice with conditions similar to vascular dementia and Alzheimer's disease when LIPUS was applied to the whole brain three times a day for 20 minutes each time. Study: ADHD drugs do not improve cognition in healthy college students University of Rhode Island, July 19, 2022 Contrary to popular belief across college campuses, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) medications may fail to improve cognition in healthy students and actually can impair functioning, according to a study by researchers at the University of Rhode Island and Brown University. Study co-investigators Lisa Weyandt, professor of psychology and a faculty member with URI's George and Anne Ryan Institute for Neuroscience, and Tara White, assistant professor of research in behavioral and social sciences at Brown University, had anticipated different findings. "We hypothesized that Adderall would enhance cognition in the healthy students, but instead, the medication did not improve reading comprehension or fluency, and it impaired working memory," she said. "Not only are they not benefitting from it academically, but it could be negatively affecting their performance." This first-ever multisite pilot study of the impact of so-called "study drugs" on college students who do not have ADHD comes at a time when use of prescription stimulants such as Adderall, Ritalin and Vyvanse is common among young adults who believe the drugs will improve their academic performance. Results of the study, published in the journal Pharmacy, show that the standard 30 mg dose of Adderall did improve attention and focus -- a typical result from a stimulant -- but that effect failed to translate to better performance on a battery of neurocognitive tasks that measured short-term memory, reading comprehension and fluency. Weyandt has a theory about why working memory would be adversely affected by the medication. Brain scan research shows that a person with ADHD often has less neural activity in the regions of the brain that control executive function -- working memory, attention, self-control. For people with ADHD, Adderall and similar medications increase activity in those regions and appear to normalize functioning. "If your brain is functioning normally in those regions, the medication is unlikely to have a positive effect on cognition and my actually impair cognition. In other words, you need to have a deficit to benefit from the medicine," Weyandt said. Guanabana: the cancer killer big pharma doesn't want you to know about Northeastern University, July 16, 2022 Guanabana is known by a variety of names -- including soursop, cherimoya, custard apple, Brazilian paw paw and graviola. As far back as the 1970s, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) investigated the merits of guanabana, and discovered the stems and leaves of the tree were successful in destroying cancer cells. "Inexplicably, the results [of the NCI research] were published in an internal report and never released to the public. Since 1976, guanabana has proven to be an immensely potent cancer killer in 20 independent laboratory tests, but as of now, no double-blind clinical trials," reports Christopher Lane, Ph.D., in Psychology Today. Moreover, this study found that a compound derived from the leaves of guanabana was "selectively cytotoxic for the lung (A-549), colon (HT-29), and pancreatic (PACA-2) cell lines with potencies equal to or exceeding those of Adriamycin." And research in the Journal of Natural Products discovered that extracts of guanabana demonstrated pesticidal, antimalarial, antiviral and antimicrobial properties. Likewise, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center states that guanabana shows anti-inflammatory and anticancer effects in vitro and in vivo. Revered for centuries in South America and Southeast Asia, the bark, leaves, root, seeds and fruit have been used to tame heart disease, asthma, liver issues and arthritis. Guanabana is also helpful for treating sleep disorders, fevers and cough. According to the article, "Guanabana--Medicinal Uses?" extracts of the plant: Attack cancer safely and effectively with an all-natural therapy that does not cause extreme nausea, weight loss and hair loss. Protect the immune system. Boost energy and outlook on life. Effectively target and kill malignant cells in 12 types of cancer -- including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreatic cancer. Proved to be up to 10,000 times stronger in slowing the growth of cancer cells than Adriamycin, a commonly used chemotherapeutic drug. Selectively kill only cancer cells, unlike traditional chemotherapy treatments. *A word of caution: Excessive consumption of guanabana can lead to neuronal dysfunction and degeneration with symptoms similar to Parkinson's disease. Consult with a qualified practitioner before taking guanabana on a daily basis. High-strength cannabis linked to addiction and mental health problems University of Bath (UK), July 25, 2022 As the strength or potency of cannabis products has increased internationally over the years, so have rates of people being treated for cannabis addiction, say the authors of a new study. Researchers from the Addiction and Mental Health Group at the University of Bath (UK) have systematically analyzed the relationship between the types of cannabis people use and their addiction and mental health problems. Their work draws on 20 studies involving almost 120,000 people. The new study, published in The Lancet Psychiatry, suggests that people who use high-potency cannabis are more likely to experience addiction than those using low-potency products. It also suggests that people using high-potency cannabis are more likely to experience a psychotic disorder, such as schizophrenia. These findings may help to explain why more people have received treatment for cannabis problems over recent years. Data from the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction show a 76% increase in people entering treatment for cannabis addiction in the past decade.
