But it also helps victims and families from water contamination 40 years ago at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. It allows them to receive compensation.

Native Americans in professional healing professions may creatively incorporate Native ways in their work, but the path is not easy.  The same is true for those coming from a Western background that realize there is something lacking in modern medicine and are attracted to Native ways of healing. Western and Native approaches to healing may seem incompatible—linear-mechanical, biological or genetic causes versus interdependent, community and natural world imbalances—but there is a way to integrate them, to see and walk in two worlds. Not easily and not without pushback perhaps, but there is a way. Our two guests, one Native, one non-Native, have both been powerfully influenced and transformed by Indigenous wisdom and also other ways of knowing and have done the work to integrate and implement a more holistic vision of medicine. Join us as we explore how to integrate healing traditions on the next Circle for Original Thinking podcast. Lewis Mehl-Madrona, MD, graduated from Stanford University School of Medicine where he trained in family medicine, psychiatry, and clinical psychology. He has been on the faculties of several medical schools, most recently as associate professor of family medicine at the University of New England. He continues to work with aboriginal communities to develop uniquely aboriginal styles of healing and health care for use in those communities. He is the author of Coyote  Medicine, Coyote Healing, and Coyote Wisdom, a trilogy of books on  what Native culture has to offer the modern world. He has also  written Narrative Medicine, Healing the Mind through the Power of Story among others, and his most recent book is with Barbara Mainguy, Remapping Your Mind: the Neuroscience of Self-Transformation through Story. Lewis currently works with Wabanaki Public Health and Wellness, which serves the five tribes of Maine.

September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. In general, 45% of individuals who die by suicide will have seen their primary healthcare provider within one month of their death, but only 20% will have seen a mental health professional. During the last few years, there has been an increased awareness and focus on mental health. Despite the increased availability of mental health apps and virtual connections to providers, the demand for services is still high. Recently, a national three-digit crisis number, 988, was rolled out in the US to help connect anyone in need with suicide prevention and crisis resources. What can health systems and providers do on a larger scale to help prevent suicide? In this episode, Danny Gladden, director of behavioral health at Oracle Cerner, talks with Dr. Caitlin Thompson, clinical psychologist and chief clinical officer at Red Duke Strategies, who formerly served as the national director of suicide prevention at Veterans Affairs.

A federal judge in Texas — the same one who tried to strike down the Affordable Care Act as unconstitutional in 2018 — has ruled against some of the ACA's preventive benefits, including the requirement that employers cover medication to prevent HIV. Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs tries to make abortions slightly more available to veterans and their dependents. Alice Miranda Ollstein of Politico, Sarah Karlin-Smith of the Pink Sheet, and Joanne Kenen of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and Politico join KHN's Julie Rovner to discuss these issues and more.

Biden allows abortions at V.A. hospitals despite state bans, Chinese church seeking asylum in America, The Tithe Project movie

It's Wednesday, September 7th,  A.D. 2022. This is The Worldview in 5 Minutes heard at www.TheWorldview.com. I'm Adam McManus. By Adam McManus (Adam@TheWorldview.com) Chinese church seeking asylum in America A 60-member entire Chinese church, Shenzhen Holy Reformed Church, left China between late 2019 and early 2020 due to religious persecution to seek asylum in South Korea, reports International Christian Concern. However, when they did not receive refugee status in South Korea, they began to seek resettlement in the United States as another option.  On September 5th, they submitted their United Nations refugee applications in Bangkok. They left South Korea last week and traveled to Thailand on 15-day tourist visas, hoping that their applications could be processed quickly. If their visas run out, they could be deported back to China. The church's pastor, Pan Yongguang, emphasized the gravity of their plight.  He said, “This is dangerous but it is an opportunity.” ICC's Regional Manager for Southeast Asia, Gina Goh, who is currently with the congregation in Bangkok assisting with logistics, witnessed the submission of their applications. Disturbingly, the church is under constant surveillance in Bangkok by Chinese operatives. Please pray that their application is approved. Hebrews 4:16 says, “Let us then approach God's throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”  This Chinese church is in urgent need right now. 58% of Americans disapprove of President Biden A Reuters/Ipsos poll shows that 58% of Americans disapprove of President Joe Biden while 38% approve.  These numbers echo a poll done by Gallup. In addition, Reuters found that the top issue on American minds is the economy.  In the survey, completed on Aug. 30, Biden's approval rating of only 38% was down from 41% the week previous. "[I]t has been mostly below 40% since mid-June despite a string of Democratic legislative victories that Biden's allies hope will help them defend their narrow congressional majorities in November," reports Reuters.  "Democrats are expected to lose control of the U.S. House of Representatives in November and possibly the Senate as well," reported Reuters. "Even with control only of the House, Republicans would be able to bring Biden's legislative agenda to a halt and launch potentially politically damaging investigations.” 10,100 pounds of Fentanyl seized at U.S.-Mexico border U.S. Customs and Border Protection seized 10,100 pounds of Fentanyl at the U.S.-Mexico border between October and July. It takes only two milligrams to kill a person. Appearing on Fox & Friends on Tuesday, Montgomery County, Texas Sheriff Rand Henderson said all Americans should be very concerned. HENDERSON:  “It's a poison that's been introduced to our country. I mean, the illicit manufacture of this stuff has just gotten crazy with the potency of it. “The deception by the drug dealers to mix it into the pressed pills, trying to sell it as a legal drug that's a prescription medication. It only takes two milligrams of this stuff to kill you. We're finding twice, sometimes three times, the amount of fentanyl in a pill that's not supposed to contain any fentanyl. Believe it or not, drug dealers will lie to you. “It is truly a weapon of mass destruction. It's killing our population.” Biden to allow abortions at V.A. hospitals despite state bans The Biden administration has announced its intention to kill babies by  abortion at U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs medical facilities for eligible veterans and beneficiaries, reports the Christian Post. That includes offering abortions in states where the procedure has recently become illegal. Veterans Affairs Secretary Denis McDonough has perfected his Orwellian Newspeak. He said, "Pregnant veterans deserve to have access to world-class reproductive care when they need it most. That's what our nation owes them.” Apparently, McDonough believes tax-funded abortion is some kind of patriotic duty on the part of the taxpayers. Christian film invites believers to re-examine the tithe And finally, in Malachi 3:10, God urges believers to tithe. The LORD Almighty says, “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test Me in this, and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.” In a new Christian documentary, entitled The Tithe Project, a single mother of two accepts the challenge to tithe for 90 days. NARRATOR: “I'm going to follow someone around, who has never tithed, for 90 days. We're going to keep track of her finances and literally put God to the test.” In the film, Christian author Bill Federer explains quite clearly that prior to LBJ and FDR, it was the church which provided for the social needs of the downtrodden through the tithe. FEDERER: “Prior to the welfare state started with Lyndon Johnson and Franklin Roosevelt and his New Deal programs, it was the church that did all the social programs. “So, in the 1840s, there was a person named Charles Finney, and he was involved in the Second Great Awakening revival. He ended up inspiring George Williams to start the YMCA and his preaching inspired William Booth to start the Salvation Army. “You saw all these groups that actually had together in America, they had a budget larger than the federal government. They started hospitals and orphanages and took care of the homeless and the wounded veterans and all this was being done through the church.” Go to TitheMovie.com to watch the trailer and to check out the accompanying Tithe Project Bible study and 6-week sermon series.
