Thinking about LDN (low dose naltrexone)?
Want to know more?
This podcast is for you!
On Monday, April 18, 2016 Dr. Jess Armine has the great pleasure, once again, to interview the creator of the LDN Research Trust, Linda Elsegood!
Diagnosed with Relapsing/Remitting MS in August 2000 at the age of 44, Linda was told that she had Secondary Progressive and there was nothing anyone could do to help. She decided to take matters into her own hands, and started LDN in December 2003. LDN helped her with fatigue, restless legs, bladder, bowel, burning legs, leg strength, tingling in feet, sleeping and 'fog in the head'. She now has a better quality of life and hope for the future.
As a result of her amazing improvement, this indefatigueable and loving individual created the LDN Research Trust which disseminates information about LDN throughout the world and empowers people to speak with their doctors about LDN and empowers healthcare providers with information about this vital substance. She takes no money whatsoever. (www.ldnresearchtrust.org)
In this prerecorded interview (she is in UK), Linda will update us on all the research concerning low-dose naltrexone (LDN) including the benefit of LDN in cases of autoimmune diseases, posttraumatic stress disorder, Crohn's disease, MS, autism, autism spectrum disorders, chronic fatigue, CFS/ME and cancer.
She will introduce the new book about LDN that is presently available on Amazon worldwide (search for "The LDN Book").
Join us and learn from this facinating and dynamic woman! See you then! Dr. Jess.

Tonight we will also welcome Merv Watson back to discuss current events and some news stories.
We talked about the names of God back on February 23rd, and then on April 5th we talked about the names, types and shadows of Jesus Christ. Now we turn our study of names to a much lesser being... Satan.
Some claim him to be fantasy and fiction; something created solely to keep people under control. Others ascribe him as much power as God Himself... Or more. Those in the middle of these two ends of the spectrum believe him to be nothing more than a tempting spirit; others, that he is bound and unmoving in Hell; and still more that he is the antithesis of Jesus Christ.
Much can be learned about Satan by simply understanding what he is referred to as within the Bible. His names and titles, when learned and understood, can tell us a great deal about the enemy of our souls. For this reason, we now shine a light into the darkness to expose the truth about... The Devil.

MORE HEAVEN: BECAUSE EVERY CHILD IS SPECIAL~
Based on a true story, More Heaven: Because Every Child is Special about six children with autism and special needs and their teacher who gives them a chance at learning and life. Despite challenges and a lack of support, Miss Tina Randolph's commitment to reach, teach, and inspire these children is unwavering.
By accepting their uniqueness and participating in their private fantasy world, while at the same time engaging them in the real world, she eventually succeeds. Tina, her teacher's aide, Kaye, and the children mount a tireless, daily battle to shift the tide toward the acceptance of people who are different.
The experiment, begun in chaotic, uncharted waters, bridges the gap of understanding and paves the way for the inclusionary practices of education and society's acceptance of children and adults with special needs. This is a road that continues to need paving, making the messages inMore Heaven: Because Every Child Is Special equally relevant today.
The book evolved from an experiment in the Philadelphia school system in the late 1970's in response to the 1975 Education for the Handicapped Act, ruling that public schools in the US educate all children with disabilities, despite their severity.
Previously, many of these special needs children were kept at home-isolated and denied access to the mainstream. More Heaven is a powerful story of compassion, determination, disappointment, triumph, and love.
