    Cancer: Complementary, Alternative, & Integrative Options

    in Self Help

    Cancer is the ultimate wake-up call. Not only is your body sick, your spirit is sick. A diagnosis of cancer is devastating, but it can also be an enormous opportunity to achieve true healing.  Remember the well-known quote, "Cancer is a word, not a sentence."


    Complementary medicine is treatments that are used along with standard medical treatments but are not considered to be standard treatments. One example is using acupuncture to help lessen some side effects of cancer treatment.


    Alternative medicine is treatments that are used instead of standard medical treatments. One example is using a special diet to treat cancer instead of anticancer drugs that are prescribed by an oncologist.


    Integrative medicine is a total approach to medical care that combines standard medicine with the CAM practices that have shown to be safe and effective. They treat the patient's mind, body, and spirit. 


    We will focus on some of these options on our show. Let's talk about it!

    Breast Cancer Awareness - Patrice Keeling WineMiller

    in Motivation

    Patrice says "In November 2009, after an 8 and a half years with the disease, my mother gained her wings and joined her oldest sister and her mom (both cancer victims) in heaven.  With one maternal aunt surviving cancer, I saw no choice but to find out all I could of this horrible disease and how to keep it from affecting me and my daughters.


    As my mother’s last gift to me at her final doctors visit, she donated to me her DNA, so that any testing needed could be done.  WHAT A WONDERFUL GIFT!   In January 2010, I started my first doctor visits.  I spoke with my mom’s Oncologist regarding how in depth the cancer was and what my chances were at the time of possibly getting cancer.  I spoke to specialist about testing for certain genes that my family might have .  I finally decided something more HAD to be done.  The doctor stated with my chances of getting cancer, that it would be best for me to have testing every six months or I could go ahead and have a double mastectomy and reconstruction.  That weighed heavily on me at first but with thoughts going back to all my mom and aunts had gone through, it became an easy decision….I was having surgery!  I spoke to mom’s Oncologist who recommended the perfect person to perform my Mastectomy and a great friend who had already been through the procedure introduced me to my plastic surgeon.  Together, we had the perfect team!   This was something I had to do not just for me but for my future – my kids.  I wanted to be around for them."

    Are you Living Your Dream? How Life-&-Death Experiences catapult you to success

    in Entertainment

    Are you living the life of your dreams? A life-and-death experience just might be the key to catapult you to success. Sounds strange? Not according to our next two guests:


    Dionne Young: mother, model, performing artist, writer, cover girl and activist. According to pictures she's living the dream: fearless, bold and powerful. What the pictures don't tell is that she is a Triple Negative Breast Cancer survivor. Most people have never heard of this type of breast cancer which is progressive, inflammatory and often misdiagnosed. Many also don't know the increased cancer risk for young girls, men nor the different reaction to treatment between different ethnic groups. Dionne will share her story of survival as well as educate us on how breast cancer awareness as well as how she thrives after her diagnosis.


    Hear her beautiful poem, I Love that you Hate Me, which tells a part of her struggle with Breast Cancer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=msWK5SgF7ow


    I had a wonderful time interviewing the man behind the music, the mogul, the artist, the performer and lead guitarist to the stars--Kerry 2Smooth Marshall Jr. His business knowledge, social media saavy and creative genius is amazing. [Read my interview w/him for SuperFabMag to see what I mean:  http://www.superfabmag.com/kerry-2-smooth-marshall-jr/]


    What many don't know is that it was a near death experience that inspired this legend to pursue his dreams. Luck had nothing to do with it; determination, passion and dedication helped him to live the life of his dreams. Here's just a taste of some of the amazing work he does:  https://www.facebook.com/kerry.marshalljr/videos/10154515823949815/


    Are you living the life of your dreams? If not, tune in this Sunday, October 4th to find out how you can. If yes, tune in and find out how to live at the next dimension.

    Hard Starboard Radio: Overcoming The Obstacle Of Trachial Equinism

    in Politics Conservative

    Still on call for a promised call-back I'm starting to wonder if I'll ever receive, especially given that my father's new PCP (primary care physician, not the other kind of PCP) accepted him.  Now Silver Creek is nagging us to come up with a urologist and oncologist, which I thought was the purview of the PCP to recommend and refer.  Maybe we can clarify all this on our next visit.


    Otherwise, I'd be all set to go except that (1) I'm getting lazy and (2) I'm so hoarse I sound like a straight Harvey Keitel.  So the Wayback Machine reliving of the last shutdown showdown takes us into the weekend, where I WILL be on the air tomorrow on American Daily Review and Constitution Radio, starting at 2PM Eastern/11 AM Pacific.


    And as for Monday?  You'll just have to log in to find out.

    Multiple Myeloma Diagnostic Tests - Types and Frequency w/ Dr. Joseph Mikhael

    in Health

    Myeloma presents itself with different features in each patient. In order to understand your disease and monitor it, you need to know which are the tests available and how often you have to get the tests done. No single test or study is adequate to tell the whole story about a patient's status, but when used together, test results can give a complete picture. Our experienced myeloma panel is talking to Dr. Joseph Mikhael about understanding your myeloma, types of diagnostic tests and their frequency.  


    Dr. Joseph Mikhael is a hematologist/oncologist at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona where he researches, teaches and treats multiple myeloma and related conditions. After completing medical school and residency at the University of Ottawa, he completed a second residency and fellowship at the University of Toronto and the Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto, Ontario. At the Mayo Clinic, Dr. Mikhael is a principal investigator for clinical trials in both relapsed/refractory and newly diagnosed multiple myeloma.

    Mental HEALTH vs. Mental ILLNESS - De-Stigmatizing Mental Wellness

    in Women

    There are many misconceptions about mental health; yet, if someone is diagnosed with cancer, we encourage that person to see an oncologist, or to take powerful drugs like chemotherapy if it might help, and to take time off work or school to let themselves heal. Yet - when it’s an addiction or an eating disorder or some other mental illness – it’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking that someone should be able to get better on their own. What’s up with that? Today’s guest, Bessie Ann Christen with The Parenting Center is here to talk about the stigma of mental illness and steps we can all take to support our spouse, our children’s parent, our friends or family. Tune in to hear more.

    TRADITIONAL CHEROKEE GOVERNMENT: Principal Chief Charles L "Jahtlohi" Rogers MD

    in Religion

    Prerecorded March 2014...


    Owing to the widespread misunderstanding of traditional Cherokee Lifeways, and owing to the recent victimization of Cherokee descendants yearning to be taught The Old Ways, who are being misinformed by fraudulent (and sometimes even malicious) people claiming to teach ancient ways, but who are actually teaching false precepts, tonight we will be explaining and setting in order "Traditional Cherokee Governments."


    Our guest is Principal Chief Charles Layton "Jahtlohi (Kingfisher) Rogers M.D. (Oncologist), who is also Chief Priest of Nacion Cherokee de Mexico a/k/a "The Cherokee Nation of Sequoyah of Mexico, Texas the USA Reservation and Church" which is the USA entity of The Cherokee Nation of Mexico, (Nacion Cherokee de Mexico) federally recognized by The Republic of Mexico.
