VIDEOS: Video Emerges Where Fauci and Others Planned for a “Universal mRNA Flu Vaccine” Which Became the “COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine” Because People were not Afraid Enough of the Flu Virus (1:51) You're Not Going To Believe This! | Mark Steyn & Eva Vlaardingerbroek (3:03) Neil Oliver – ‘…it's a toxic hell…' (START @ 9:00) Gravitas: Who helped Taliban repair the abandoned American aircraft? (7:25)   Healthy plant-based diets associated with lower colorectal cancer risk in men Kyung Hee University, South Korea, November 28, 2022 Eating a plant-based diet rich in healthy plant foods—such as whole grains, vegetables, and legumes—and low in unhealthy plant foods—including refined grains, fruit juices, and added sugars—is associated with a lower risk of colorectal cancer in men. The findings are published in the open access journal BMC Medicine.Jihye Kim, the corresponding author, said, “Colorectal cancer is the third-most common cancer worldwide, and the risk of developing colorectal cancer over a lifetime is one in 23 for men and one in 25 for women. Although previous research has suggested that plant-based diets may play a role in preventing colorectal cancer, the impact of plant foods' nutritional quality on this association has been unclear. Our findings suggest that eating a healthy plant-based diet is associated with a reduced risk of colorectal cancer.” Researchers from Kyung Hee University, South Korea found that among a population of 79,952 American men, those who ate the highest average daily amounts of healthy plant-based foods had a 22% lower risk of colorectal cancer, compared to those who ate the lowest amounts of healthy plant foods. However, the authors did not identify any significant associations between the nutritional quality of plant-based diets and colorectal cancer risk among a population of 93,475 American women. Jihye Kim said, “We speculate that the antioxidants found in foods such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains could contribute to lowering colorectal cancer risk by suppressing chronic inflammation, which can lead to cancer. As men tend to have a higher risk of colorectal cancer than women, we propose that this could help explain why eating greater amounts of healthy plant-based foods was associated with reduced colorectal cancer risk in men but not women.” The authors found that the association between the nutritional quality of plant-based diets and colorectal cancer risk among men varied by race and ethnicity. Among Japanese American men, colorectal cancer risk was 20% lower for those who ate the highest amount of healthy plant foods per day than for those who ate the lowest amount. Among white men, those who ate the highest amount of highest amount of healthy plant foods had a 24% lower colorectal cancer risk than those who ate the lowest amount. The authors did not identify any significant associations between plant-based diets and colorectal cancer risk among African American, Latino or Native Hawaiian men. (next) Green Mediterranean diet reduces twice as much visceral fat as traditional Mediterranean diet Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (Israel), November 28, 2022 Following the green Mediterranean diet significantly reduces visceral adipose tissue, a type of fat around internal organs that is much more dangerous than the extra “tire” around your waist. Recently, researchers compared the green Mediterranean diet to the traditional Mediterranean diet and a non-Mediterranean healthy diet in a large-scale clinical interventional trial—the DIRECT PLUS. Subsequent analysis found that the green Mediterranean diet reduced visceral fat by 14%, the Mediterranean diet by 7% and the non-Mediterranean healthy diet by 4.5%. The study was published in BMC Medicine. Reducing visceral fat is considered the true goal of weight loss, as it is a more important indicator than a person's weight or the circumference of their waist. Visceral fat aggregates over time between organs, and produces hormones and poisons linked to heart disease, diabetes, dementia and premature death. The DIRECT-PLUS trial research team was the first to introduce the concept of the green Mediterranean diet. This modified Mediterranean diet is further enriched with dietary polyphenols and is lower in red/processed meat than the traditional Mediterranean diet. On top of a daily intake of walnuts (28 grams), the participants consumed 3-4 cups of green tea/day and 100 grams (frozen cubes) of duckweed green shake/day. The aquatic green plant duckweed is high in bioavailable protein, iron, B12, vitamins, minerals, and polyphenols and substituted meat intake. The team has shown in previous studies that the green Mediterranean diet has a variety of salutary effects ranging from the microbiome to age-related degenerative diseases. A group of 294 participants took part in the 18-month long trial. “A 14% reduction in visceral fat is a dramatic achievement for making simple changes to your diet and lifestyle. Weight loss is an important goal only if it is accompanied by impressive results in reducing adipose tissue,” notes Dr. Hila Zelicha. (next) Are older women being over-screened for cervical cancer? University of Illinois at Chicago, November 28, 2022 A new study published in JAMA Internal Medicine suggests that women over the age of 65 may be undergoing unnecessary cervical cancer screenings and that more public health data is needed on the utilization of cervical cancer screening-associated services among older women to prevent potential harm and unnecessary costs. The study, which is authored by experts from the University of Illinois Chicago, the University of California San Francisco and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, looked at Medicare claims data from 1999 to 2019 for fee-for-service care for women over the age of 65. The analysis showed that in 2019 more than 1.3 million women received cervical cancer screening-associated services, such as a Pap test, colposcopy, and other cervical procedures after age 65. While these services cost more than $83 million, the researchers concluded they were of “unclear clinical appropriateness.” “Cervical cancer screening and other preventive services are among our most important tools for keeping people healthy throughout life, but screenings should also follow evidence-based guidelines to prevent overspending, potential complications and patient discomfort,” said study co-author Dr. Hunter Holt, assistant professor of family and community medicine at the University of Illinois Chicago. According to recommendations and guidelines from the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, the American Cancer Society and the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, women considered to be of average risk can stop undergoing routine cervical cancer screening once they reach the age of 65 if they have had adequate prior screening. “The decision to end cervical cancer screening for women after age 65 requires review of past screening results and related medical history. This process can promote cervical cancer prevention and prevent harms and costs from unnecessary tests and procedures,” said Jin Qin, study co-author and epidemiologist in CDC's Division of Cancer Prevention and Control. The researchers say that the high rates of screening among older women is potentially concerning. “It could be that women are getting screened when they do not need to, or that these women are considered to be at higher-than-average risk, for example, because they have not been adequately screened prior to 65. We do not want to see either of these things and unfortunately, there is not enough public health data to shed light on the causes,” said Holt, who is also affiliated with the University of Illinois Cancer Center at UIC. (next) Chemotherapy could increase disease susceptibility in future generations Washington State University, November 28, 2022 A common chemotherapy drug could carry a toxic inheritance for children and grandchildren of adolescent cancer survivors, Washington State University-led research indicates. The study, published online in iScience, found that male rats who received the drug ifosfamide during adolescence had offspring and grand-offspring with increased incidence of disease. While other research has shown that cancer treatments can increase patients' chance of developing disease later in life, this is one of the first-known studies showing that susceptibility can be passed down to a third generation of unexposed offspring. “The findings suggest that if a patient receives chemotherapy, and then later has children, that their grandchildren, and even great-grandchildren, may have an increased disease susceptibility due to their ancestors' chemotherapy exposure,” said Michael Skinner, a WSU biologist and corresponding author on the study. Given this study's implications, the researchers recommend that cancer patients who plan to have children later take precautions, such as using cryopreservation to freeze sperm or ova before having chemotherapy. In the study, researchers exposed a set of young male rats to ifosfamide over three days, mimicking a course of treatment an adolescent human cancer patient might receive. Those rats were later bred with female rats who had not been exposed to the drug. The resulting offspring were bred again with another set of unexposed rats. The first-generation offspring had some exposure to the chemotherapy drug since their fathers' sperm was exposed, but researchers found greater incidence of disease in not only the first- but also the second-generation, who had no direct exposure to the drug. While there were some differences by generation and sex, the associated problems included greater incidence of kidney and testis diseases as well as delayed onset of puberty and abnormally low anxiety, indicating a lowered ability to assess risk. The results of the researchers' analysis showed epigenetic changes in two generations linked to the chemotherapy exposure of the originally exposed rats. The fact that these changes could be seen in the grand-offspring, who had no direct exposure to the chemotherapy drug, indicates that the negative effects were passed down through epigenetic inheritance. (next) Saffron can fight liver cancer, reveal UAE researchers United Arab Emirates University, November 20, 2022 It may be an expensive spice but you cannot put a label or price on health, said Professor Amr Amin who has researched a breakthrough in the properties of saffron in fighting liver cancer. Professor Amin from Cellular & Molecular Biology at United Arab Emirates University said that researchers have investigated and found saffron to have anti-liver cancer properties. “Safranal, a major biomolecule of the golden spice saffron arrests and stops the cancer cell division at two different stages,” he said. The UAE researchers have been working on this project since 2011 when they first published the research in the Hepatology Journal. The study suggests a novel mechanism of anti-proliferative activity of safranal against human liver cancer cells. “This molecule could serve as a novel and/or adjuvant drug to treat liver cancer,” said Dr Amin. The findings are now also published in a Nature journal Scientific Reports. “The ingredient works in two ways; it stops cell division and promotes cell death,” he explained. Prof Amin and colleagues concluded that safranal exerts its anticancer effect in HepG2 cells by inhibiting DNA repair, resulting in increased DNA damage. (next) Japanese researchers say that ultrasound therapy can be used to treat patients with dementia Tohoku University (Japan), November 20, 2022 A new therapy based on ultrasound waves might be able to improve the cognitive powers of patients suffering from Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. According to an article on the Tohoku University news page, the approach improved the condition of mice with symptoms similar to human dementia. In their experiment, the Tohoku University research team sent low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) waves through the brain of the mice. They found that the waves improved the creation of blood vessels and the rate of regeneration of nerve cells. Furthermore, the treatment did not cause any notable side effects on the mice. The results led the researchers to believe that they can replicate their experimental success in actual human patients one day. “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,” explained TU researcher Hiroaki Shimokawa. The Tohoku researchers applied LIPUS therapy to the whole brain of mice with symptoms that resemble those of Alzheimer's disease or vascular dementia. They did this three times a day, with each session lasting for 20 minutes. The mice that simulated vascular dementia underwent surgery that reduced the amount of blood that reached the brain. These animals underwent LIPUS treatment on the first, third, and fifth days after that surgery. Meanwhile, the mice that modeled Alzheimer's disease got 11 LIPUS treatments over a three-month-long trial period. By the end of the experiment, the researchers found that LIPUS activated genes involved with the cells that made up the inner lining of blood vessels. Furthermore, an enzyme that promoted blood vessel formation displayed increased activity, as did a protein which helped nerve cells grow. Based on their findings, whole-brain LIPUS therapy can help alleviate the symptoms of certain forms of dementia by encouraging the development of cells that are normally affected by the condition. The technique is currently undergoing initial clinical trials that will determine its efficacy and safety.

TRAGEDY OF THE SOLOMONIC ERA As in the case of Israel's possession of the land in Joshua, (PH1-10 after the Northern & Southern Campaign effectively eliminated the 31 kings) so toward the end of narrating the zenith of Israelite kingship in Solomon, 1 Kings 8:56 says that Solomon's reign and building of the temple happened "according to all that He promised; not one word ... failed of all His good promise, which He promised through Moses His servant." “You will bring them in and plant them in the mountain of your inheritance, in the place you made for your residence, (Palace) O Lord, the sanctuary, (Temple) O Lord, that your hands have established.” Exodus‬ ‭15:17‬ ‭ This is not mere fulfillment of prophecies about a kingdom and a temple; in the light of the links to Gen. 1-2, this is also the realization of a kingdom and a temple in what appeared to be an emerging new creation (X2M-99-). And, as with Joshua, although there was an escalated fulfillment of prophecies of the Israelite kingship and of the temple (and even more so with Solomon), these fulfillments were not consummated. Subsequent history reveals this lack of consummation in that sin by both Solomon and Israel occurred, resulting not in elevation of conditions into a new creation (X2M99-) where perfect righteousness dwells but rather in the deleterious consequences of the splintering of Israelite kingship and kingdom, destruction of the temple, and dismantling of the nation itself in exile. Also, both Moses's prophecy in Exod. 15:17-18 and God's promise in 2 Sam. 7:10-16 (an allusive development itself of the Exod. 15 passage) affirm that the kingdom and the temple will be established forever, which did not happen with Solomon. Lack of complete fulfillment is indicated also by the conditional way that the fulfillment is expressed (1 Kings 2:4; 8:25; 9:1-9)… “and the Lord will fulfill his promise to me, ‘If your descendants watch their step and live faithfully in my presence with all their heart and being, then,' he promised, ‘you will not fail to have a successor on the throne of Israel.'” ‭1 Kings‬ ‭2:4‬ ‭NET‬‬ …as well as by the observation, as in Joshua, that left in Israel were some of the people remaining from the enemy nations,"whom the sons of Israel were unable to destroy utterly" (1 Kings 9:21). THE WHY OF ZECHARIAH - see notes in book The essence is the restoration | Tikkun and consummation | Olam of God's kingdom. SIX DAYS Invitation Initiation Designation Probation Conferral Confirmation SEVENTH DAY Consummation The consummation which would have been typified in Solomon was only completed in Jesus that the fullness of Christ would be in us in this end-time generation by transfiguration leading to glorification... “After Solomon finished building the Lord's temple, the royal palace, and all the other construction projects he had planned, the Lord appeared to Solomon a second time… Jesus fulfills the complete conditions of the covenant with one sacrifice Beginning next week, X2M-114 we will start with the book of Zechariah detailing through 7 visions/aspects of our King of Glory… X. Introduction to Structure 1. Governor of the Nations 2. Avenger of the Afflicted 3. Builder of God's City 4. Guardian of God's Courts 5. Anointer of God's Temple 6. Desolator of the Apostates 7. Judge of the World Much of the church usually camps out around 1, 2 or a few of the above 7 attributes of Jesus…we need a robust multifaceted view of Him in consummation….that He's the Governor, Avenger, Builder, Guardian, Anointer, Desolator of the apostates, Judge…the King of Glory! Our aperture of Him will not then be 1, 2 or few sides but multifaceted and our vision will be reality in our midst within and without as Collider comes into fruition. That even as we behold (vision) Him in His consummation…the consummation of the ages we will become like Him.

Let's get into it: NEVADA CURRENT: The Cowardly Lombardo.In his first public event since being elected governor of Nevada, Joe Lombardo refused to allow the Nevada Current and the Las Vegas Sun to cover what was billed as a victory speech. Shutting the Current out of his celebratory event was an extension of the Lombardo team's practice throughout the campaign – along with multiple Republican candidates nationwide – to refuse to provide campaign statements, notices of events, or other information to the press. The campaign told the Current Monday morning that they couldn't be allowed to cover the event because it was “at capacity for press right now.” Subsequent photographs of the event showed that statement from the campaign was patently false - with row upon row of empty seats in the sparsely populated high school auditorium where Lombardo gave his victory speech.Such mendacity from Lombardo and his team comes as no surprise. But most concerning going forward, is the prospect that as governor, Lombardo, his office, and publicly financed executive branch government offices under his purview, will refuse to provide independent journalists and other media organizations with public information.Lombardo's campaign presented its candidate to the public as an upright lawman of character, honesty, integrity and strength. But subverting the people's right to transparent and accountable government, and hiding from the press is just cowardly.COLORADO NEWSLINE: With Lauren Boebert slightly ahead in Colorado, the race to cure ballots is on.The extremely tight race between MAGA darling U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert and moderate Democrat Adam Frisch became a contest of cured ballots this week, as the two candidates worked to rally their voters and ensure every one of their ballots is counted.On Tuesday afternoon, the difference between the candidates' totals remained at over 1,000 votes: a narrow spread for sure, but still above the threshold that would trigger an automatic, state-funded recount. At the current numbers, if Frisch comes within about 830 votes, then a recount would be triggered.Vote tallies will change through the end of Wednesday as ballots continue to arrive from military and overseas voters, and as flawed ballots are “cured'' by voters. When tabulators reject a ballot, often due to a discrepancy between the voter's signature on the ballot and the official state voter registration records, the voter has an opportunity to resolve, or cure, the problem and have their vote count.The Frisch team is trying to win cured ballots this week by getting the word out to voters about the curing process, encouraging use of the state's TXT2Cure mobile phone-based curing system, and on-the-ground voter engagement.A Frisch campaign spokesperson said “A lot of the curable ballots tend to skew a lot younger, and others who don't have as much experience voting. We think that we probably will perform better among younger voters, so we think that probably there's more curable ballots for us than for Lauren Boebert.”The Frisch campaign also believes cured ballots from unaffiliated voters, not just registered Democrats, will skew their way.That sentiment was seconded by Matt Crane, a Republican who heads the Colorado County Clerks Association.Crane said. “Unaffiliated voters wanted to punish the hell out of the Republican Party in Colorado this year. And they sure did. It's probably a better pool for Democrats to go and try to cure unaffiliated ballots than it is for Republicans, just based on the way the election went.”A spokesperson for Boebert did not reply to a message seeking comment.Ballot curing must be completed by 11:59 p.m. Wednesday, and updated results are expected to be available Thursday.Colorado law requires an automatic recount, also known as a statutory recount, if the apparent winner is ahead by 0.5% or less. During such a recount, the secretary of state's office would delay certification of the race and neither candidate would be declared representative-elect until resolution of the recount, which must be completed by Dec. 13.COLORADO NEWSLINE: Congresswoman Caraveo focused on healthcare and climate change.     Yadira Caraveo, a Colorado state representative, stood at a lectern Thursday in the backyard of her childhood home in Adams County north of Denver. Her parents, who immigrated from Mexico and moved to the Denver-area home when Caraveo was in second grade, watched from a balcony as their daughter addressed reporters for the first time as the Democratic U.S. representative-elect from Colorado's 8th Congressional District. And the first Latina to represent Colorado in Congress.Dr Caraveo said “This hill behind me is where my siblings and I used to slide down and make mud piles, and the house behind us is where I spent many, many hours studying to get through high school, through college and through medical school,” Dr. Caraveo is a pediatrician in the community. She went on to say she was able to do this because of the hard work of her parents.The new 8th District was the state's most competitive based on previous elections, and unofficial results show Caraveo won by a margin of less than one percentage point. The district also has the highest concentration of Hispanic residents, at 39%, and includes the northern Denver suburbs, extending into parts of Weld County and Greeley. Caraveo said her top priorities in Congress include health care and climate change. She cited the obstacles she faced as a doctor trying to treat young patients.“The medical training that I had was not enough to beat the system that we had,” she said. “And so a lot of my effort is going to go into that system to make sure that it's not about insurance companies or drug companies.”Caraveo alluded to striking a balance on her environmental agenda. The 8th District includes parts of Weld County, which produces the most oil and gas in the state, by far .“We have a very important oil and gas industry that gives people like the families at my clinic great jobs, but I also see kids struggling to breathe every single day and I've had to send them to the hospital to be put on oxygen.” she saidThe Colorado delegation from Colorado that will join Congress in January will also include Democrats Diana DeGette from the 1st District, Joe Neguse from the 2nd District, Jason Crow from the 6th District and Brittany Pettersen from the 7th District; and Republicans Ken Buck from the 4th District and Doug Lamborn from the 5th District.The race for the 3rd District between Republican incumbent Lauren Boebert and Democratic challenger Adam Frisch is still too close to call.ARIZONA MIRROR: Republicans are falsely claiming that Arizona used to know final election results on Election Day.Republicans in Arizona and elsewhere have insisted that the days-long tabulation of early ballots, particularly in Maricopa County, is a sign the election might be being stolen. They're flat wrong about the history, however: Final election results have never been available on Election Night in any Arizona county. What's changed isn't anything about the vote-counting, but that Arizona has gone from a ruby red state where Republicans dominated most elections — to a deep purple state where races up and down the ballot have been extremely close. Those close races mean candidates, voters, pundits and the national media are focusing intently on Arizona's post-Election Day tallies.For example: in the Nov. 2, 2004 presidential election, the final results came on November 15, 13 days later.In the Nov. 7, 2006 midterm electionFinal results: Nov. 19Lag time: 12 daysNov. 4, 2008 presidential electionFinal results: Nov. 21Lag time: 17 daysNov. 2, 2010 midterm electionFinal results: Nov. 17Lag time: 15 daysNov. 6, 2012 presidential electionFinal results: Nov. 20Lag time: 14 daysNov. 4, 2014 midterm electionFinal results: Nov. 18Lag time: 14 daysNov. 8, 2016 presidential electionFinal results: Nov. 18Lag time: 10 daysNov. 6, 2018 midterm electionFinal results: Nov. 20Lag time: 14 daysNov. 3, 2020 presidential electionFinal results: Nov. 13Lag time: 10 daysNone of that has stopped Arizona GOP candidates and their allies across the country from crying foul about the process that has existed in the Grand Canyon State since the early 1990s, when Republicans here pioneered no-excuse early mail-in voting.Kari Lake, the GOP nominee for governor, has insisted that Arizonans knew the Maricopa County results and the overall result of their elections on Election Night - until 2020.Records from Maricopa County elections over the past 22 years show that has never been the case. Media outlets, like the Associated Press, might have called races in the past when election night returns showed that one candidate would clearly win, but the fastest the county has released final results in a midterm election since 2000 was six days, in 2002. In Maricopa County, a record 290,000 people dropped off their early ballots on Election Day this year. Elections workers didn't even begin to start counting those ballots until Wednesday morning. Before those ballots are tabulated, their barcodes are scanned to ensure that they came from a registered voter who hasn't cast another ballot in this election. Then elections workers check the signature on the envelope against past signatures from the voter. After that, a bipartisan team separates the ballot from the envelope and checks that the voter received the correct ballot. Once all those steps are completed, the county can tabulate the ballot. All the ballots have never been counted in one day.ROCKY MOUNTAIN PBS: Colorado legalizes psychedelic mushrooms.Ten years after leading the nation in legalizing the sale of cannabis, Colorado became the second state in the U.S. to permit psilocybin, or "magic," mushrooms. Oregon was the first state to do so.As of 2 p.m. on Nov. 10, data from the Colorado Secretary of State's Office showed the Natural Medicine Health Act — voted on as Proposition 122 — was on the path to a slim approval, with 51.6% of voters supporting the measure.The measure will allow people 21 and older to grow and share psilocybin mushrooms, as well as create state-regulated centers where people could make appointments to consume the fungi. The proposition will also create “healing centers” to give clients mushrooms in a supervised setting, but will not create "mushroom dispensaries," in the same way cannabis is sold and purchased.Proponents of the ballot measure claim mushroom consumption has helped address their mental health issues in ways traditional pharmaceuticals did not, particularly when the mushrooms were taken in small doses, a method called microdosing. Gov. Jared Polis has until Jan. 31 to appoint 15 members to the Natural Medicine Advisory Board, which will report to the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies.CONCERT PICK OF THE WEEK: Next Wednesday, the night before Thanksgiving - The Last Waltz - with Warren Haynes, Jamey Johnson, Kathleen Edwards, and more.

Find out more about Donna on her website: https://www.artisanfacebody.com/home ▪︎ ▪︎ ▪︎ ︎ABOUT OUR GUEST: Graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and a Master of Science in Anesthesiology, Donna Gonzalez is not only an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse and Nurse Anesthetist, but a skilled and experienced advanced aesthetic practitioner. Proudly, she is also a national trainer of aesthetics with the American Institute of Aesthetic Medicine (AIAM). More than 20 years ago, Donna graduated nursing school with honors and began her career as a trauma and ICU specialist at Miami Jackson Memorial Hospital and Doctor's Hospital in Coral Gables. She worked closely with some of the country's finest doctors, surgeons and nurses. These colleagues include some of the most prominent oral maxillofacial surgeons as well as nationally recognized plastic surgeons. Always thirsting for more knowledge, Donna, broadened her scope of nursing practice to incorporate neuroscience and post anesthesia care. It wasn't long before she found herself enrolled in one of the finest nurse anesthesia programs in the country and graduated as a nurse anesthetist. Subsequent training and practice in neuroscience and anesthesiology afforded her the ability to work with aesthetics for medical treatments, which later blossomed into cosmetic aesthetics. The culmination of her educational background and clinical experience has given Donna the opportunity to implement theoretical and practical experience in creatively combining the art and science of aesthetic treatments to her repertoire. In many circles “DG” is known as “the cannula queen”, for using a highly skilled technique to minimize bruising, bleeding and overall downtime. Donna's focus and passion is completely on the field of aesthetic medicine. It is her belief that both men and women of all ages deserve to look their best, whether it be for cosmetic reasons or sometimes even medical. Donna understands aesthetic medicine at a cellular level to combine therapies with the latest skin rejuvenating techniques providing naturally beautiful results that are reproducible with each treatment! Take note that treatments are not exclusive to the face but to the body as well! DG's results are achieved by utilizing any combination of wrinkle relaxers, dermal fillers, PDO threads, Stem Cell and Fibrin therapy (PRF/PRP), collagen stimulation therapy (CST), skin brightening and resurfacing with laser therapy and the use of medical grade cosmeceuticals…let us not forget skillful technique and expert knowledge! --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/13th-ave-media/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/13th-ave-media/support

Loss of the Sultana by Chester D. Berry by Chester D. Berry audiobook. April, 1865. The country was in turmoil. The U.S. Civil War had come to an end, thousands of Union prisoners of war had recently been released, and President Lincoln had just been assassinated. The steamship 'Sultana' left New Orleans on April 21st, traveled to Vicksburg, Mississippi where it took on 1,965 federal soldiers and 35 officers, all recently released prisoners of war, most of them held at the prison camps of Cahaba (or Cahawba, near Selma, Alabama) and Andersonville (in southwest Georgia), and now finally headed for their homes. The 'Sultana' arrived in Memphis, Tennessee on April 26th and headed north toward Cairo, Illinois carrying over 2,100 passengers, but designed for a capacity of only 376. At approximately 2:00 a.m. of the 27th, mere hours after the assassination of John Wilkes Booth, the 'Sultana' mysteriously exploded while steaming about 7 miles north of Memphis, killing over 1,500 on board (estimates vary). The sole reason this incident received such scant attention at the time, and ever since, is the fact that the country was understandably absorbed in the recent assassinations. Subsequent inquiry into the 'Sultana' disaster would uncover some startling revelations into its cause, some believe leading directly to the topmost levels of the U.S. Government. The loss of the 'Sultana' was the greatest maritime disaster in U.S. history, up until the bombing of Pearl Harbor. This book, composed by Chester Berry, one of the survivors, is unique in that it gives firsthand account from well over 100 of the survivors of the tragedy in their own words. Note - The online e-text (link provided) includes 3 lists for reference that are not included in this audio release: 1 - An official list of prisoners of war on the Sultana, including company served with 2 - Persons known to have been on board the Sultana, but not reported 3 - Name, Company, Regiment, and present (1892) residence of living survivors

Tom welcomes a new and yet well-known guest, Grant Williams, to the show. Grant discusses how being flexible in mindset is important as in the world of social media, people can be quite dogmatic. Admitting your mistakes is key, as everyone is just trying to figure out the future. He is quite cautious about giving actionable advice because people may not understand how he came to his conclusions. Helping people come to their own decisions is better than simply telling people what to do. Jim Cramer is an example of someone who spews nonsense and provides generally bad advice every day. Everyone and everything today is at risk in these volatile times. People need to be aware. Things are changing and government's may intervene in ways that benefit them at your expense. There are plenty of pensions around the West that are carefully re-evaluating their risks given what happened in the United Kingdom. Many of these are vulnerable because they have taken on more risks to find returns. Grant discusses the importance of having a plan for positioning and exiting in markets, and why it's crucial to avoid emotion. The hubris of Fed officials is remarkable, and the fact they've raised interest rates four times demonstrates just how bad a job they've been doing. Gold is not completely safe from confiscation, but there are always places in the world where it will be used. Bitcoin is likely to be directly competing with Central Bank Digital Currencies at some point, and that may entail additional risks.

During that time, he's lived and worked in seven major financial centers from London to Sydney, building the kind of network that many others can only dream about. He began his career in the Japanese equity market in the mid-1980s, before a three-year posting to Tokyo ensured he had a ringside seat as the twin bubbles in equities and real estate burst simultaneously and spectacularly at the end of 1989. After a short stint back in London, Grant relocated once again, this time to New York, where he spent 7 years. Subsequent postings have taken him to Hong Kong, Sydney, Singapore, and the Cayman Islands. Currently, he is a senior advisor to Matterhorn Asset Management AG in Switzerland, and a portfolio and strategy advisor to Vulpes Investment Management in Singapore. Back in 2014, Grant's ambition to bring the most intelligent, engaging, and original people in finance to a wider audience led him to co-found Real Vision, an on-demand internet-based financial media platform. Grant's twin Real Vision interview series, In Conversation With… and On The Road, raised the bar for financial content – engaging and educating viewers in equal measure and helping them learn the secrets behind a group of extraordinary investors' success. Long before Real Vision, however, Grant was guiding people around the fringes of finance with his regular newsletter, "Things That Make You Go Hmmm…", a publication which, from humble beginnings as a daily note to a few friends and colleagues, has grown into one of the most widely read financial publications in the world.

Parashat Lech Lecha- Obeying Hashem's Commands

Insight of the Week

Parashat Lech-Lecha begins with Hashem's first words to Abraham Abinu – commanding him to leave his homeland and settle in the Land of Israel. The Or Ha'haim (Rav Haim Ben-Attar, 1696-1743) raises the question of why the Torah does not mention that G-d appeared to Abraham. Normally, when G-d speaks to a prophet for the first time, it says that He first appeared to the prophet and then spoke to him. Here, however, we are told that G-d spoke to Abraham, and only later, when Abraham reached Eretz Yisrael, the Torah relates that G-d appeared to him and promised that this land would be given to his offspring (12:7). Why? The Or Ha'haim answers that Abraham became worthy of beholding G-d's presence once he fulfilled G-d's commands. Subsequent prophets, the Or Ha'haim explains, were already rooted in sanctity because they descended from Abraham Abinu. But Abraham himself, who was the first to recognize Hashem, needed to earn the privilege of a prophetic vision through obedience, by obeying a command given to him by G-d. Therefore, G-d did not at first appear to Abraham, but rather spoke to him, commanding him to resettle in the Land of Israel. Once Abraham obeyed and arrived in the land, G-d appeared to him. The Or Ha'haim's comments perhaps answer also a different question, regarding the great miracle of Ur Kasdim, where Abraham was saved from a furnace. According to a well-known Midrashic tradition, Abraham was brought before the king, Nimrod, because he publicly renounced idol-worship and insisted on the belief in a single G-d. Even at the threat of death, Abraham refused to rescind his faith. He was thrown into furnace, and he miraculously survived. Curiously, the Torah does not tell this story. It alludes to this miracle through the name "Ur Kasdim" (11:28; see Rashi), as the word "Ur" means "fire," but it is not told explicitly. We would have assumed that this extraordinary display of courage and self-sacrifice would be significant enough to be mentioned to provide us with some background into Abraham Abinu's character and devotion to G-d. Yet, the Torah omits this episode, and instead begins the story of Abraham with the command that he move to Eretz Yisrael. The answer, perhaps, is that as great as this display of faith was, it was done voluntarily. Abraham went into the furnace of his own volition, without having been commanded to by G-d. This was certainly inspiring – but a person's primary obligation is to submit to G-d's will, to properly and devotedly obey His commands. As the Gemara (Kiddushin 31a) teaches, "Gadol Ha'mesuveh Ve'oseh Mi'mi She'eno Mesuveh Ve'oseh" – one who fulfills a Misva which he is commanded to perform is greater than one who voluntarily fulfills a Misva which he is not commanded to perform. The greatest act we can do as G-d's servants is to carry out our duties, to fulfill our obligations. Of course, we are encouraged to extend beyond our basic obligations, and to achieve to our maximum potential. But our primary point of focus must be on obedience, humbly obeying Hashem's commands, and doing all that He instructs us to do.

Her journey of introspection and personal transformation would lead to profound insights around self-healing, happiness, and inner peace. Now living her purpose every day, Anne is a powerful teacher with an uncommon ability to share her story and insights in a way that awakens the inner wisdom in others. Her accident ignited a passion for sharing her experience and knowledge, and she has made it her life's purpose to help individuals remember the happiness within them.

Since 18th century and pre-Constitution America, libraries have been a public space, a central repository where books could be borrowed, read and returned—a long defended democratic ideal of the public library. The nonprofit Internet Archive, founded in 1996, was built to be both the library of the Internet and the library on the Internet—a grand repository of knowledge. Its mission: universal access to all knowledge through the networked reach of the Internet, which allows the Archive to serve as a loc­­­al library for users with a browser anywhere. During the global COVID pandemic closures of public libraries and schools in 2020, the Internet Archive created the  National Emergency Library  to provide digitized books to students and the public. This changed the one book/one person model of lending. Subsequent lawsuits and responses have led to current federal court cases, led by major publishers, contending that controlled digital lending means “willful mass copyright infringement.” Countersuits filed and championed by the Archive propose that such an argument presents “obstacles to the free flow of information” and the guarantee of pubic library lending access.To explore these issues, join us for a conversation with Brewster Kahle, the founder and digital librarian of the Internet Archive, which now preserves more than 99 unique petabytes of data—the books, web pages, music, television and software of our cultural heritage, working with more than 950 library and university partners to create a digital library accessible to all. Kahle created the Internet's first publishing system, called the Wide Area Information Server, later selling the company to AOL. He also co-founded Alexa Internet, which helps catalog the web; he sold it to Amazon.com. The Archive's Wayback machine is one of the most popular Internet websites. MLF ORGANIZER Anne W.

Ben McDaniel was an avid open water scuba diver. In the months leading up to his disappearance he was trying to get cave diver certified. He had recently got divorced, his brother who he was very close to died, and his construction business failed which put him in massive debt. He took some time to live at his parent's vacation home in Santa Rosa Beach, FL with his beloved dog. During this time he did many, many dives at Vortex Springs, a well known diving place with a dangerous cave you can only dive in if you have your cave diving certification. On August 18, 2010 he went for two dives in Vortex Springs and was going down to do another one when he saw some employees of the dive shop. Although Ben did not have his cave diving certification one of the employees let him through the locked gate within the cave. Two days later this employee came back to work and found that Ben's car still hadn't moved and no one had seen him.Police were called in and world famous divers came to help search for Ben's body but nothing was found, not even an indication someone had been in the cave recently. Subsequent tests showed no indication of decomposition chemicals in the water and to this day Ben has never been found. Was he murdered? Was it a terrible accident and his body is still deep within the cave? Or did he voluntarily leave his life?Also be sure to rate us 5 stars on Apple podcasts if that is where you listen.

October 4: Saint Francis of Assisic. 1182–1226Memorial; Liturgical Color: WhitePatron Saint of animals, ecology, and merchants. Co-patron of ItalyA merchant's son of eccentric sensibilities goes radicalThough originally baptized by his mother as Giovanni (John) in honor of Saint John the Baptist, today's saint was renamed Francesco, or “Frenchy,” by his father Pietro de Bernardone after Pietro returned home from trading in France. Pietro loved France, and his son's romantic, troubadour spirit likely flowed from that same cultural source.Francesco grew up in a middle-class home that engaged in the sale of fine cloth. Francis was a skilled merchant in the family business, but he enjoyed spending money more than earning it. He was a man about town, a leader among his friends, and well liked for his concern for others. He was also a failed knight. When he was twenty, Francis joined a civic-minded Assisi militia in a battle against a neighboring city. When the militia was routed, Francis was spared death and instead held for ransom due to his fine livery. He was held prisoner in a rank dungeon for a year before the ransom was paid. He returned to Assisi a more reflective man. Subsequent military service for the Papal States ended abruptly when Francis heard a voice tell him, “Follow the master rather than the man.” He sold his expensive armor and horse, returned home, and began to spend hours in prayer.Shortly after this turning point, Francis met a leper on the outskirts of Assisi. He initially recoiled, but then dismounted, gave the man some money, and kissed his putrid hand. This was the start of his frequent visits to leper houses and hospitals. When Francis heard a voice from the cross say to him, “Francis, go and repair my church, which as you can see is in ruins,” he sold a large amount of cloth and his father's horse at a neighboring market town. Coming back to Assisi, he donated the proceeds to a priest at the church of San Damiano on the outskirts of Assisi. Francis' father was irate. His son had sold cloth from the family store, and a horse, and had thengiven away money that was not his. This was stealing, and Francis was put in prison. A dramatic scene then unfolds between Francis and his father in a church square, in the presence of Bishop Guido of Assisi and his court. Pietro demands the return of his money. The Bishop supports him and says the Church cannot accept stolen money. Francis returns the coins. But then Francis goes further. Piece by piece, he removes his clothing until he is naked before everyone's eyes. He then says, “From now on I will not say ‘My Father, Pietro Bernardone' but ‘Our Father, who art in heaven.'” There is not a single reference in any contemporary Franciscan document to Pietro after this dramatic incident. Francis was now cut off, disinherited, and on his own.Francis eventually begins to wear a rough smock which he ties around his waist with a cord. He lives alone in absolute poverty, prays, helps the sick, rebuilds nearby run-down chapels, and preaches and begs in Assisi. Men begin to follow his lead, and the first fire of the worldwide Franciscan order ignites. The “Lesser Brothers of Assisi” is recognized by the Pope, Francis is ordained a deacon, and the Order's explosive growth can only be called miraculous. Saint Francis is the first great founder of a religious order since Saint Benedict in the 500s. By sheer allure of personality, holiness, and vision, not intellect or organizational skill, he imparted a mysteriously powerful charism to his followers. He was ardent in his love for the Holy Eucharist and insisted that churches be well kept in honor of the Lord's physical presence.Francis died in his forty-fourth year and was canonized just two years later, in 1228. Saint Francis may be the most well-known person of the second millennium. A measure of his massive impact can be gauged by observing that it is not uncommon for Saint Francis to be seen as the ideal of Christian virtue and poverty, even over and above the religion's very founder.Saint Francis of Assisi, you held the Holy Eucharist in such holy reverence you dared not be ordained a priest. Your love of the Word of God complimented your love of His creation. Help all Christians to have your same balance of love for God, the Sacraments, and all God's creation.

Present studies and researches have shed more light on DNA. Earlier it was proved that Humans have only two strands of DNA( even now this theory is being followed) But recent researches show that there may be additional Ten DNA Strands , instead of two as is theorized now.'A total of 10 DNA Strands are ‘mutating and awakening' according to Researchers. These ten strands have been called Junk DNA. Subsequent to the finding of a child with three DNA Strands , researchers are now stating that there may be a total of 12 DNA Strands and ten of them are in the process of mutating and we would have twelve DNA Strands.Is it possible that the information conveys the message that there are 12 DNA Strands? And that they evolve as the Avatars are indicative of the evolutionary process? As the DNA Strands determine our life with coded past information, is it possible that horoscopes represent the records of our past genetic codes affecting and guiding our lives?   breathing and his lips turned blue.

He now lives on the Isle of Skye, off the coast of North West Scotland, where he continues to write, and lectures worldwide.   California's “holy herb” Yerba Santa found to be an effective natural treatment for Alzheimer's   Salk Institute for Biological Studies, September 19, 2022 Alzheimer's disease is the most common form of dementia, and aging is its primary risk factor. Therefore, researchers continue to look for ways to counter the effects of aging on the brain. In a recent study, researchers from The Salk Institute for Biological Studies discovered a potential natural treatment for Alzheimer's in the form of a medicinal herb found in California. In their study published in the journal Redox Biology, they found that yerba santa (Eriodictyon californicum), a plant native to California, contains an active compound called sterubin that could be used to treat people with Alzheimer's. Yerba santa, which is the Spanish for “holy herb,” is highly regarded as a medicine for respiratory diseases, bruising, fever, headaches, infections, and pain. For the current study, the researchers first examined 400 plant extracts with known medicinal properties for their ability to prevent oxytosis – a type of cell death that occurs in Alzheimer's disease – in mouse hippocampal nerve cells. The researchers found that sterubin exhibited the greatest protective effect against inflammation and other triggers of brain cell death. In particular, sterubin strongly reduced inflammation in microglia, which are brain cells that provide support to nerve cells. In addition, the researchers found that sterubin can remove iron from cells, helping to prevent iron accumulation. Iron accumulation can result in a type of nerve cell damage that accompanies aging and occurs in neurodegenerative problems. “Not only did sterubin turn out to be much more active than the other flavonoids in Yerba santa in our assays, it appears as good as, if not better than, other flavonoids we have studied,” said Pamela Maher, the corresponding author of the study. Vitamin B may reduce risk of stroke Zhengzhou University (China)  September 23, 2022   Researchers have uncovered evidence that suggests vitamin B supplements could help to reduce the risk of stroke, according to a study published in the journal Neurology. Vitamin B supplements are said to be beneficial for many health issues, including stress, anxiety, depression, dementia, Alzheimer's disease and heart disease. However, according to Xu Yuming of Zhengzhou University in Zhengzhou, China, previous studies have conflicting findings regarding the use of vitamin B supplements and stroke or heart attack. In order to determine the role of vitamin B supplements in the risk of stroke, Prof. Yuming and colleagues analyzed 14 randomized clinical trials involving a total of 54,913 participants  All studies compared use of vitamin B supplements with a placebo, or a very low dosage of the vitamin. All participants were then followed for a period of 6 months. Results of the analysis revealed that the participants taking the vitamin B supplements had a 7% reduced risk of stroke, compared with those taking the placebo supplements or a low dosage of vitamin B. The researchers found that a supplemental form of folate (vitamin B9) – a vitamin frequently found in fortified cereals – actually reduced the effect of vitamin B on the risk of stroke Additionally, the study showed that vitamin B12 did not have any effect on the risk of stroke.   Ginger may protect the brain from MSG toxicity, says fascinating research University of Jeddah (Saudi Arabia), September 23, 2013  For thousands of years, ginger has been hailed as a superfood for its healing properties that aid every system of the body. The oils that ginger contains are antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal, and ginger has even been found to inhibit cancer growth. Now a study has actually proven that ginger can reverse the damage done by monosodium glutamate, or MSG, a known harmful excitotoxin. After injecting pure MSG into rats for 30 days, researchers found subsequent withdrawal caused adverse effects including significant epinephrine, norepinephine, dopamine and serotonin depletion. Low levels of these important neurotransmitters can be detrimental to health. Subsequent to injecting lab rats with MSG, researchers injected ginger root extract for 30 more days and were able to completely reverse the neurotransmitter depletion and brain damage that MSG caused. Not only that, but the positive effects of ginger were maintained even after scientists stopped administering it! A wealth of independent studies show that MSG should be avoided at all costs. Also popularly printed on food labels as hydrolyzed protein, torula or autolyzed yeast, soy or yeast extract and soy protein isolate among some 40 other names, scientists have found that consuming MSG even in low doses can cause blood glutamate levels to fluctuate abnormally high and then stay there. Anyone suffering from a disease or immunity issue that would contribute to a weakened blood-brain barrier is then much more susceptible to the chemical seeping into his or her brain and doing damage. Studies have effectively linked MSG consumption to several neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's. Men with anxiety are more likely to die of cancer, study says Cambridge University's Institute of Public Health, September 20, 2022 Men over 40 who are plagued with generalized anxiety disorder are more than twice as likely to die of cancer than are men who do not have the mental affliction, new research finds. But for women who suffer from severe anxiety, the research found no increased risk of cancer death. That finding, presented at the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology's Congress in Vienna, emerges from the largest study ever to explore a link between anxiety and cancer. It tracked 15,938 Britons over 40 for 15 years. Even after researchers took account of factors that boost the risk of cancer, including age, alcohol consumption, smoking and chronic diseases, men with a diagnosis of generalized anxiety disorder were 2.15 times as likely to die of cancer than were those with no such diagnosis. Generalized anxiety disorder – a condition marked by excessive, uncontrollable worry about many areas of life – affected women more commonly than it did men. Among women in the large cohort studied, 2.4 percent suffered from the disorder. Among men in the cohort, 1.8 percent did. Whatever the relationship, says the study's lead author, the new findings identify extremely anxious men as a population whose mental and physical health should be closely tracked. “Society may need to consider anxiety as a warning signal for poor health,” said study lead author Olivia Remes of Cambridge University's Institute of Public Health. “With this study, we show that anxiety is more than just a personality trait,” but rather, a disorder linked to real and serious health risks. Out of Over 400 Compounds Analyzed, Red Grapes and Blueberries Are Tops In Boosting Immunity – So Effective They Work As Well As Drugs Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University, September 18, 2022Pterostilbene, an antioxidant produced by plants has been shown to exhibit exceptional properties in fighting infections, cancer, hypertriglycerides, as well as the ability to reverse cognitive decline. It is believed that the compound also has anti-diabetic properties. In an analysis of 446 compounds for their the ability to boost the innate immune system in humans, researchers in the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University discovered just two that stood out from the crowd. Red grapes and blueberies both have an exceptional ability to significantly impact immune function. In fact, pterostilbene works as well as some commercial drugs.

Both of these compounds, which are called stilbenoids, worked in synergy with vitamin D and had a significant impact in raising the expression of the human cathelicidin antimicrobial peptide, or CAMP gene, that is involved in immune function.The research was published in Molecular Nutrition and Food Research, in studies supported by the National Institutes of Health.

Almost a decade ago, researchers discovered that pterostilbene helps regulate blood sugar and might help fight type-2 diabetes. The finding adds to a growing list of reasons to eat colorful fruit, especially blueberries, which are rich in compounds known as antioxidants. These molecules battle cell and DNA damage involved in cancer, heart disease, diabetes and perhaps also brain degeneration. 

Pterostilbene works as well as the commercial drug ciprofibrate to lower the levels of fats (lipids) and triglycerides — but they worked even more accurately. They are so specific that side-effects are non-existent.”Out of a study of hundreds of compounds, just these two popped right out,” said Adrian Gombart, an LPI principal investigator and associate professor in the OSU College of Science. “Their synergy with vitamin D to increase CAMP gene expression was significant and intriguing. It's a pretty interesting interaction.”This research is the first to show a clear synergy with vitamin D that increased CAMP expression by several times, scientists said.The CAMP gene itself is also the subject of much study, as it has been shown to play a key role in the “innate” immune system, or the body's first line of defense and ability to combat bacterial infection. The innate immune response is especially important as many antibiotics increasingly lose their effectiveness.

Grapes don't have to be fermented to contain this antioxidant. It's actually found in the skin of red grapes along with other nutrients, such as minerals manganese and potassium and vitamins K, C and B1.Stilbenoids are compounds produced by plants to fight infections, and in human biology appear to affect some of the signaling pathways that allow vitamin D to do its job, researchers said. It appears that combining these compounds with vitamin D has considerably more biological impact than any of them would separately. Fungus in humans identified for first time as key factor in Crohn's disease Case Western Reserve University, September 22, 2022 A Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine-led team of international researchers has for the first time identified a fungus as a key factor in the development of Crohn's disease. The researchers also linked a new bacterium to the previous bacteria associated with Crohn's. The groundbreaking findings, published in mBio, could lead to potential new treatments and ultimately, cures for the debilitating inflammatory bowel disease, which causes severe abdominal pain, diarrhea, weight loss, and fatigue. Mycology at Case Western Reserve and University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center “Essentially, patients with Crohn's have abnormal immune responses to these bacteria, which inhabit the intestines of all people. While most researchers focus their investigations on these bacteria, few have examined the role of fungi, which are also present in everyone's intestines. Our study adds significant new information to understanding why some people develop Crohn's disease. Equally important, it can result in a new generation of treatments, including medications and probiotics, which hold the potential for making qualitative and quantitative differences in the lives of people suffering from Crohn's.” The researchers assessed the mycobiome and bacteriome of patients with Crohn's disease and their Crohn's-free first degree relatives in nine families in northern France and Belgium, and in Crohn's-free individuals from four families living in the same geographic area. Specifically, they analyzed fecal samples of 20 Crohn's and 28 Crohn's-free patients from nine families and of 21 Crohn's-free patients of four families. The researchers found strong fungal-bacterial interactions in those with Crohn's disease: two bacteria (Escherichia coli and Serratia marcescens) and one fungus (Candida tropicalis) moved in lock step. The presence of all three in the sick family members was significantly higher compared to their healthy relatives, suggesting that the bacteria and fungus interact in the intestines. Additionally, test-tube research by the Ghannoum-led team found that the three work together (with the E. coli cells fusing to the fungal cells and S. marcescens forming a bridge connecting the microbes) to produce a biofilm — a thin, slimy layer of microorganisms found in the body that adheres to, among other sites, a portion of the intestines — which can prompt inflammation that results in the symptoms of Crohn's disease. This is first time any fungus has been linked to Crohn's in humans; previously it was only found in mice with the disease. The study is also the first to include S. marcescens in the Crohn's-linked bacteriome. Additionally, the researchers found that the presence of beneficial bacteria was significantly lower in the Crohn's patients, corroborating previous research findings.

In the last episode, Dr. Ofer Zur stated that he estimates at least 50% of board complaints in some way involve the subsequent therapist encouraging a client to initiate a complaint against a prior therapist.And most of these cases do not involve egregious misconduct or predatory behavior.Many of these cases result from misunderstandings, clients who are unreliable reporters, gray areas, differences in theoretical orientation that result in disagreement about the use of therapeutic practices, or poorly handled therapeutic ruptures of the sort that all of us have been, or will be guilty of, at some point in our careers.So of course, I keep asking myself why.Why is this phenomenon so common in our field? Why are therapists so frequently getting involved in the complaint process against other therapists? And what is it about our field that makes this more likely compared to other professional fields with board complaint processes?Today, I'm digging into the contributing and converging factors that may explain just what it is about therapists that makes this phenomenon possible.Listen to the full episode to hear: How the savior complex that drives many of us into this field may motivate therapists to encourage clients to initiate board complaints How risk management mentality and differences in theoretical orientation converge in our perceptions of harm How professional isolation and the uncertainty inherent in this work contribute to subsequent therapist syndrome Why curiosity and building real community may be the antidote to our unhealthy professional culture Learn more about Riva Stoudt: Into the Woods Counseling Instagram Resources: Episode 08: Why We Become Therapists with Ben Fineman and Carrie Wiita Episode 12: Subsequent Therapist Syndrome with Dr. Ofer Zur
