On this episode, Kerry interviews Hannah Ensor regarding her work with the Hypermobility Syndromes Association (the HMSA) and Stickman Communications. Hannah is based in the United Kingdom and she worked in the field of Environmental Health for five years before being medically retired at age 28 due to a hypermobility spectrum disorder and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS). Even though Hannah had symptoms of hypermobility throughout her life, she wasn't diagnosed until she discovered the HMSA and it was the information and support that she received from the HMSA that led her to the right diagnosis and to a course of treatment to manage her conditions. Hannah also created Stickman Communications, a company that uses cartoon drawings of stickmen to break down the barriers to communicating positively yet realistically about a wide range of disabilities, needs, and symptoms. Her products, blogs, and talks are used worldwide by people with disabilities and medical professionals. Hannah has volunteered for the Hypermobility Syndromes Association since 2010 and was featured in the ‘Power 100' list of Britain's most influential people with a disability or impairment in 2016 and 2017. Hannah is now an ex-trustee of the HMSA after stepping down in December 2021 although she continues to volunteer in other roles.

As we see an increasing number of culturally diverse patients in our practices, there is no doubt of the importance of cultural competency in medicine. Specific circumstances and miscommunications have been well documented. But how can we develop an eye to see where a patient’s values and worldview may differ from our own? We will review an approach to cultural competency highlighted by medical missions case studies.

For the second week in a row on  The Red Light Report, I have a repeat guest! This week's guest, Dr. Leland Stillman, you may remember is an integrative medical doctor that has been quite verbose and outspoken regarding his opinion on mandated vaccinations and wearing of face masks. He is also very well-versed on how light and one's light environment can impact health for better or for worse.Very recently he released a book called, Dying to Be Free. Here is an excerpt from the overview of the book: "I believe that if anything threatens the health of the American people, it is the evil agenda of these technocrats, whether they are pushing mask-wearing, vaccination, water-fluoridation, or even things as innocuous as hand washing. As much as it may surprise you to hear this from a doctor, my reasons for concern are based on an abundance of evidence and experience, and are shared by doctors and scientists all over the world." Dr. Stillman graduated with a degree in Environmental Health from Connecticut College and earned his medical degree from the University of Virginia. He trained in Internal Medicine at Maine Medical Center. He has worked in over a dozen hospitals and clinics as a traveling doctor. He spent the early part of COVID-19 working in a rural hospital and later on went viral for speaking out against the lockdown and mandate measures. Most importantly, Dr. Stillman just released a book called “Dying to Be Free.”On the previous episode with Dr. Stillman, we discussed how he analyzes his patients' light environments, how he offers suggestions to optimize them, how and why he suggests heliotherapy (therapy from the sun), how a dim environment can lead to premature aging and much more! You can check out that episode by clicking here. This is not an episode you want to skip over. In fact, it is one you will likely want to listen to a couple of times and share with your family and friends. Dr. Stillman connects many dots and drops endless truth bombs that massive corporations and the government would rather you not know. Listen with an open, critical mind and you will be sure to walk away with a newfound perspective for what it means to have true freedom. Learns lots and light up your health! - Dr. Mike Belkowski and Dr. Leland Stillman discuss the following: Transitioning out of Covid The catalyst for writing his book, Dying to Be Free Waking up to the power of the sun Benefits of getting more sun exposure in the middle of the day His focus on improving lifestyle habits Problems with the government and regulating health Allowing doctors to do what they need to do How healthcare professionals aren't incentivized to cure our ailments Negative ramifications of big food, big pharma, and big tech Replacing light loss with red light therapy Understanding how the “game” is being played How community reduces mortality rate Health insurance and why it's one of the greatest scams in history How the market is rigged Healthcare sharing ministry and how it's a better alternative to health insurance Hospital bills and how you can haggle them down Suicide rates of male and female physicians vs the general populous How the government is funneling the population to maximize corporate profits Crypto and giving power back to the people Minimizing costs - Watch this episode on YouTube - Where to Learn More From & About Dr. Leland Stillman: Website: StillmanMD.com Substack: Leland Stillman, MD Instagram: @StillmanMD - Invest in BioLight:Our crowdfunding campaign on Republic is LIVE!

Unhealthy environments have been linked to a range of significant health risks to children, including premature birth, stillbirth, increased lifelong risk for brain and behavioural problems, respiratory disorders, cardiovascular disease, cancers, dysfunction of hormonal and reproductive systems, and more. Globally, more than 1 in 4 childhood deaths under 5 years of age are attributable to unhealthy environments—a statistic that will continue to rise as climate change magnifies the world's most important environmental risk factors. While environmental health risk factors are clearly leading causes of child illness and death in Asia, country-specific, systematic data needed to develop approaches to improving children's health and reducing, minimising, and preventing environmental risk factors is often lacking.  We learn how Children's Environmental Health Indicators (CEHI) can fill the data and knowledge gap in children's environmental health; enabling tracking, assessment and reporting on the status and impacts of climate and the environment on children's health as well as the evaluation of environmental interventions and policies.

On our last podcast, Mad in the Family covered the effect of climate change and extreme weather events on children's and mothers' mental health. This one continues the conversation on environmental links to emotional distress: emerging research showing that pollution in the air and water can affect our minds and emotions, and that children are especially vulnerable, both while they are young and later in life. Kristina Marusic is a Pittsburgh-based investigative reporter for Environmental Health News, an award-winning, non-partisan organization dedicated to driving science into public discussion and policy. Last fall, EHN collaborated with Allegheny Front on a five-part series, “Pollution's Mental Toll: How Air, Water, and Climate Pollution Shape Our Mental Health.” They found that residents throughout western Pennsylvania were likely suffering changes to their brains due to pollution in the surrounding environment, even at levels below federal limits. Prior to joining EHN in 2018, Kristina covered issues related to environmental and social justice as a freelancer for a wide range of digital media outlets including The Washington Post, Slate, Vice, Women's Health, and MTV News, among others. Her reporting on environmental health for Public Source won first place in the Keystone Society of Professional Journalists' Spotlight contest in 2017. Kristina holds an MFA in Non-Fiction Writing from the University of San Francisco and a bachelor's degree in Creative Writing from Hofstra University.

The Management Team of the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA) recently paid a courtesy call on the Minister for Health, Wellness and Elderly Affairs Hon. Moses Jn Baptiste. The visit provided an opportunity to discuss environmental health matters and ways in which sustainable development issues impact public health. Executive Director of CARPHA Dr. Joy St. John said the visit will allow the team to assess the work being done at the Environmental Health and Sustainable Development department located in Saint Lucia and to highlight ways in which CARPHA can continue to provide support. “The Environmental Health and Sustainable Development Department ensures that the work we do is truly relevant to the Caribbean. That is the outcome of the first mission. The outcome of the second mission was to interact with Saint Lucia. The Minister, the Permanent Secretary and the CMO pinpointed clear and specific goals about what Saint Lucia needs going forward.” Hon. Moses Jn Baptiste says he is very pleased with the visit as it provided an avenue to discuss pertinent environmental health issues which can hinder human health and wellness. “This morning we discussed many issues relating to environmental health and how environmental health can be integrated into the public health measures and public health programmes here in Saint Lucia and the Caribbean. We also looked at the developments in respect to data and how CARPHA is reevaluating its programmes and putting in place a number of new programmes which will help Saint Lucia and the other Caribbean countries to access data and to have quality data which will certainly help us with our discussions when it comes to public health matters.” The team from CARPHA also met with the Chief Medical Officer Dr. Sharon Belmar-George and the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Health Jenny Daniel.
