    How children learn...is it environment or genetics?!?

    in Lifestyle

    Everyone has a different opinion as to how children gain knowledge. Is it environment or genetics? Do you believe that children's morals and values are shaped by specific upbringing or mentally and psychologically ingrained no matter the environment?

    What Twins Can Teach Us About Genetics vs. Environment

    in Parents

    How much of our children's basic temperament, their mental health, their intelligence, their learning disabilities, and all the things that make them who they are comes from their genes and how much from their environment. What can we learn about genetics vs. environment from the ongoing twin studies, including the study of twins separated at birth? Host Dawn Davenport, Executive Director of Creating a Family, the national infertility & adoption education and support organization, interviews three leading twin researchers: Dr. Matt McGue, Professor of Psychology at University of Minnesota, a behavioral and quantitative geneticist, Co-Director of Minnesota Twin Family Study and the Sibling Interaction and Behavior Study and Research on Adoption and adoptive dad; and Dr. Nancy Segal, Professor of Psychology, Director of the Twin Studies Center at California State University, Fullerton and author of Indivisible by Two: Lives of Extraordinary Twins and Entwined Lives: Twins and What They Tell Us About Human Behavior.

    Integrated Genetic Solutions - Interview with Guest Nicole Kafka, MD

    in Health

    If you've ever gotten a blood test, it usually comes along with a doctor's recommendations, based on her interpretation of the results. But no matter how experienced the doctor, they are still only human, and in that are not capable of assessing all the possible combinations of therapies to address the multifaceted picture of your bodies needs.


    Integrated Genetics Solutions is an algorithm designed by a Silicone Valley entrepreneur who used his highly advanced mathematical skills to help rectify his own health challenge, one that stumped the many doctors he consulted.


    Join us as we speak with Nicole Kafka, MD a doubly board certified surgeon, with a practice in Manhattan, whose interest in health has expanded beyond surgery to include nutrition, aesthetics, complementary medicine and the health of the soul, mind, “heart”, spirit and finances.

    Guest: Michelle Fondin author of The Wheel of Healing with Ayruveda

    in Relationships

    About the book:


    Ever wondered why you’re feeling out of balance, stressed-out, sick, and exhausted but still can’t sleep? Western medicine often ignores the underlying issues that can lead to fatigue, illness, and disease, but there is a way to revitalize your body and mind without drugs or dangerous side effects. Ayurveda, the “science of life,” is a complete wellness system that includes all that we associate with medical care — prevention of disease, observation, diagnosis, and treatment — as well as self-care practices that are generally absent from Western medicine. This truly holistic approach considers not just diet, exercise, and genetics but also relationships, life purpose, finances, environment, and past experiences. In this thorough and practical book, Michelle Fondin guides you gently through self-assessment questions designed to zero in on your needs and the best practices for addressing them, such as eating plans, addiction treatment, detoxification, and techniques for improving relationships. She outlines steps you can take, with minimal cost, to heal common ailments such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, excess weight, anxiety, and depression. These time-tested methods for body, mind, and spirit wellness offer benefits to anyone at any age.


    About the author:


    Author of The Wheel of Healing: An Easy Guide to an Ayurvedic Lifestyle and owner of The Ayurvedic Path Yoga and Wellness Studio since 2008, Michelle Fondin practices as an Ayurvedic Lifestyle Counselor, yoga and meditation teacher. She holds a Vedic Master certificate from the Chopra Center and has worked with Drs. Deepak Chopra and David Simon at Chopra Center events teaching yoga and meditation.

    Vanguard of Renaissance - Factions of Freedom Ep. 112

    in Homeschooling

    In 1991 we started had ImplantableMedicalDevices; PaceMakers and defibrillators. Creations that supplement the heart by artificial means. Soon after that, we developed forms of prosthetics that gave way to artificial limbs. Bionics became the next step in this invasive technological growth. Allowing various versions of body parts to be made that would, yet again, supplement the human body. Mind-to-body microchips that create a response from neurons to receivers. Recently, an operation was carried where they transplanted not only the head of a monkey, but also the head of a man onto a new body. These are things we're capable today. Who's to say we're not capable of creating a synthetic body, compatible with an exterior natural form? These are marvelous technologies nonetheless, but they enhance the 'Human Condition' and right now our whole planet is in a turmoil. What happens when requirements of Life-Extension technologies are the norm for service? An immortal Frankenstein like arm, patched together by various technologies to sustain what we call 'life'.For now, our natural bodies can handle the Pre-Human world; This is Earth 1, the original design. What's happening now, with the pollution of our air, the toxification of our food and the modification of our genetics, is that we are being aggressively converted. As radical as the notion sounds, explain animals growing extra appendages after eating GMO food after a two year process, or children being irradiated and malformed after a town is shot up with Uranium? These are lasting effects on our planet that won't end in our life time. These are artificial evolutions that require synthetic solutions, and because of this we are evolving. And if we're not being resuscitated by AutomaticInternalDefibrillators. We are being soft killed by these man-made poisons, and their solutions are more chemicals with the involvement of technology.
