    PAUL G HARCH MD Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

    in Military

    PAUL G HARCH MD Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy employs pressurized chambers in which the patient undergoes a series of “dives” in pure oxygen at varying depths of pressure, which is measured in atmospheres. Patients usually undergo 5, 1-hour dives each week for 8 weeks in the first round of treatment. After the first round, the physician will determine how many additional dives will be necessary for the patient to achieve the optimal clinical outcome.


    Dr. Harch has long been considered a pioneer in hyperbaric medicine research and clinical applications. Author of The Oxygen Revolution, Dr. Harch has written numerous articles on Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and has had several writings published in major medical journals. Dr. Harch was responsible for the scientific argument and application to Medicare that resulted in the approval of hyperbaric oxygen treatment of diabetic foot wounds.  Based on Dr. Richard Neubauer’s work and in conjunction with Dr. Van Meter he has developed many of the accepted protocols for HBOT in neurological disorders, including chronic traumatic brain injury and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in our military veterans.

    in Health

    On the Wednesday, February 11th 2015 broadcast at 1PM Eastern and 10AM Pacific our special guest is Amy Baxter, MD Founder and CEO MMJ Labs which is dedicated to personal pain control.  


    'As a pain researcher, when her son had unnecessarily traumatic routine vaccinations, she knew there must be a better way.  Dr. Baxter invented, tested, got over 1M in grant funding, researched, and ultimately developed manufacturing for Buzzy and other Personal Pain Products.'


    According to MMJ Labs website:


    'Buzzy® is a reusable breakthrough personal pain device that provides natural pain relief.  Gate control is the basis for Buzzy®, physiologically overwhelming the body’s pain nerves with benign cold (ice wings) and vibration (Buzzy’s body). Like a dentist jiggling a jaw or putting a burned finger under cool water, cold and vibration control sharp pain from shots, cosmetic injections and IVs, and temporarily relieve muscle soreness and burning from medications.  Independently verified research shows Buzzy works!'

    Surviving 2 Bouts of Pancreatic Cancer pt 2 with Dr. Steven Lewis

    in Health

    Dr. Steven Lewis received a Ph.D. in exercise physiology from Stanford University in 1977 and is a visiting professor of clinical biomedical science in the Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton. His book is called "The Ripple Effect: How a Positive Attitude and Caring Community Helped Save My Life."


     He was in superb life-long health, until he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, a disease with a survival rate of only 5%. In spite of this, Steven and his wife struggled to achieve and deliberately maintain an extremely positive attitude. This choice started a "ripple effect" that created an exceptionally caring and upbeat community of family, relatives and friends and enabled this community to return even more positive energy to Steven. The story became even more intense when Steven endured a second bout of pancreatic cancer that metastasized to his liver. Surviving a second bout of pancreatic cancer is so rare that no statistics are kept. Today, Steven is cancer free, in excellent health and works out strenuously.
