    Pharma to Dharma: Pharmaceuticals vs Hypnotherapy

    in Health

    Today Nick & Dr. Joanna will be continuing the discussion on "Pharma to Dharma: From Pharmaceuticals Back to Nature" as it applies to the use of Hypnotherapy in place of, or to minimize the use of pharmaceuticals. The Wetsern model of quick fix medicine is just not working, for doctors and patients alike. Patients are finally realizing that the "quick fix" really isn't giving them the desired result or cure that they are looking for, and doctors are starting to feel that this is not the way to truly practice medicine so that healing on all levels can be invited to occur.  Learn how hypnotherapy can be a very viable and safe approach to changing our consciousness to break thinking patterns that do not serve us. 


    Adverse Drug reactions are the 4th leading cause of death and pharmaceutical companies still continue to rake in billions by marketing and selling disease.  How do they do that?  By creating new diagnoses that fit into the effects of the drug that is already on the market, but that is usually close to patent expiration. This occurs particularly with psychotropics - drugs for anxiety, insomnia, depression and a variety of other psychiatric illnesses. Many people do not realize that sometimes the side effects of these drugs are exactly that which they are designed to treat.  Find out how hypnotherapy can be used alone or to augment any other modality of healing in what promises to be a very interesting discussion. 


    Pharma to Dharma 4-hour Workshops on 17th & 21st May 2015 and will be offered regularly. See more on the Kalyana Centre homepage. Find us always at www.thekalyanacentre.com or Dr. Joanna at www.drjoannacarmichael.com or 484-412-8815.

    Pharma to Dharma: From Pharmaceuticals Back to Nature

    in Health

    Today Nick & Dr. Joanna will be talking about her initiative called, "Pharma to Dharma: From Pharmaceuticals Back to Nature." The Wetsern model of quick fix medicine is just not working, for doctors and patients alike.  Patients are finally realizing that the "quick fix" really isn't giving them the desired result or cure that they are looking for, and doctors are starting to feel that this is not the way to truly practice medicine so that healing on all levels can be invited to occur.  


    Adverse Drug reactions are the 4th leading cause of death and pharmaceutical companies still continue to rake in billions by marketing and selling disease.  How do they do that?  By creating new diagnoses that fit into the effects of the drug that is already on the market, but that is usually close to patent expiration. This occurs particularly with psychotropics - drugs for anxiety, insomnia, depression and a variety of other psychiatric illnesses. Many people do not realize that sometimes the side effects of these drugs are exactly that which they are designed to treat.  


    How does the food industry fit in to all of this?  And it's supposedly monitored by the FDA.  But there's a reason it's called the F D A. 


    So what can we do as healthcare practitioners and consumers of medical care to combat the collusion amongst big pharma, medicine, the mainstream media, and the food industry to keep us fat, sick and dying? Find out in what promises to be a very interesting discussion.

    Big Data & Big Pharma: How Analytics Might Save Your Life

    in Technology

    Long before the tech sector christened almost every type of analytics as big data, the pharmaceutical and biotech industries were heavily reliant on analytics to develop new, safer drugs, and to produce those drugs more efficiently. Big data plays a key role in building upon what we have learned about the human genome, in managing effective clinical trials, in long-term monitoring of drug applicability in real-world healthcare, and in managing the manufacturing process.


    Consider what the use of big data in pharma and biotech companies means to you as a consumer. It means getting the right drug to the right patient at the right time for the right condition. Now, consider what you can learn as a business person -- no matter what industry you are in -- from the analytics techniques, and the data management and data mining concepts pioneered by big pharma.


    Jim Baxter, head of the life sciences practice at Collaborative Consulting, joins All Analytics Radio on Tuesday, May 19, at 2 pm EDT, for a discussion of how pharma and biotech companies finding benefits in big data analytics.


    In this show you will learn:



    How use of big data analytics have evolved in the drug and medical device industries
    What types of benefits life sciences companies are finding through use of analytics
    What big data in pharma means to you as a possible patient
    What the future holds for use of analytics in life sciences
    What lessons big pharma can teach analytics professionals and decision makers about use of big data in their own business environments

    The Health and Wellness Show - 31 July 2015 - Big Pharma: the Medical Mafia

    in Health

    If you believe pharmaceutical corporations hold the health of the general public in high regard, it's time to reconsider. The industry is filled with examples of wrongful death, extortion, fraud, corruption, obstruction of justice, embezzlement, fake journals, harassment and hit lists that would make even the most hardened Mafia godfather blush. This week on the Health and Wellness show, we take a close look into the atrocities perpetrated on the public by this massive, psychopathic industry and emphasize alternatives to being another brick in the pharmaceutical pyramid. As always, we'll feature Zoya's Pet Health Segment.


    Join us Friday mornings at 10am EST, where we expose the lies and emphasize the truth about health in our modern world.

    Immuno-Oncology: Exploring the Challenges & Potential

    Pharma Brand Ads Within Mobile Apps

    in Business

    Myrbetriq®'s Advertising Partnership with RunPee App


    Pharmaguy interviews Walt Johnston, Vice President of US Marketing and New Product Planning, and Emily Sitrin Mason, Consumer Marketing Director - Urology Franchise, at Astellas (see Bios). We discuss a new partnership with Astellas Pharma US and the RunPee mobile app as part of the company's marketing campaign for Myrbetriq® (mirabegron) featuring an animated bladder character. 


    The RunPee app is a movie-viewing app that tells you the best time to "run and pee" without missing the best scenes. While the ultimate goal is to encourage individuals to speak with a health care professional about overactive bladder (OAB), Astellas is encouraging those who experience symptoms of OAB to enjoy the movies this summer and download the app to determine the best time to use the restroom during movies if needed. 


    Questions/Topics of Discussion



    Give us a little background about this partnership. Why did Astellas decide to partner with RunPee?
    Describe how the app works
    Are branded Myrbetriq® ads served up within the app? Describe how that is done.
    What is the target audience for Myrbetriq® and how does the app help you reach this audience?
    What are are the KPIs for this campaign? Has it been successful so far? What data can you share with us?
    What have you learned from this partnership?

    Schools to Start Depression Screenings = Big $$$ for Big Pharma!

    in Politics

    The largest school district in Minnesota is considering screening students for depression and anxiety.  


    This most certainly means that countless more children and teens will be the subject of a parent teacher conference where the district's psychiatrist urges the prescription of an ADHD (or ADD) medication to improve concentration, focus or happiness of the student in question.


    While the screenings are supposedly aimed at preventing more student suicides, the establishment fails to inform parents that many child and teen suicides are most likely the result of the same anti-anxiety and anti-depression medications that will be pushed following the new screenings.


    WND reported that the screenings are the result of Obama's executive action on gun control following Sandy Hook.  Many opponents argue that the goal is to document "mental illness" with  as many students as possible, so to later be used as a flag to prevent gun ownership.  Many call it a back door attack on the second amendment.


    Even if you aren't concerned with the second amendment, you should be concerned about these drugs being forced upon children and teens across America.
