Philosopher Dr. Diana Hsieh interviewed emergency medicine physician Dr. Doug McGuff about "Government Controls in Emergency Medicine" in this episode of Philosophy in Action Radio.
The practice of emergency medicine is heavily regulated by the government. What are some of those regulations? What are their effects? How do they make the practice of medicine more difficult? How would emergency medicine function in a truly free market?
Dr. Doug McGuff is an emergency medicine doctor practicing in South Carolina. He graduated from the University of Texas Medical School at San Antonio in 1989, and then trained in Emergency Medicine at the University of Arkansas, where he served as Chief Resident. From there, Dr. McGuff served as Faculty in the Wright State University Emergency Medicine Residency and was a staff Emergency Physician at Wright-Patterson AFB Hospital. Today, Dr. McGuff is a partner with Blue Ridge Emergency Physicians.

Join us for a conversation with Dianne Vass, Executive Director of the Emergency Medicine Patient Safety Foundation, to learn about the important contributions to patient safety and the reduction of medical errors in our nation's emergency departments that the foundation is leading and why the Big Day of Giving on May 6, 2014 is a great time to make a donation.
Presbyterian’s website says emergency department doctors are independent physicians — common language in hospitals, where the separate but interlocked interests of single doctors, physicians’ groups and the institution itself can be bewildering.
At Presbyterian’s ER, the rest of the story is even less known. The signs all say Presbyterian, but Presbyterian doesn’t run it. The entire department is outsourced to an independent contractor.
The contractor, a Fort Worth-based company, Emergency Medicine Consultants Ltd., serves hospitals under the name of its medical practice, Texas Medicine Resources LLP, and uses the website name emdocs.com. The company referred questions to Texas Health.
A comparison of clients finds that two failed to beat state or federal averages in any category of emergency care quality. Two more — Texas Health Presbyterian and Methodist Charlton in southwestern Dallas — bettered those figures in just one category. In five others, they were worse, based on the latest report, from October 2012 to September 2013, by the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
Presbyterian ranked 78th for safety among Texas' busiest 100 hospitals in a recent Dallas Morning News analysis of hospital complication data for 2012. Of 26 North Texas hospitals in the study, it was 17th.

On this episode of ‘The Smithfix’ we continue with Prepping and turn our attention to health and natural medicine.
Tonight we have a valued addition to We Resisters Radio, Brandi Medeina- Certified Nutritional Therapist and Herbalist.
Prepper Nutrition, Natural Medicine, Herbs…, this will be a great show.
Brandi moved to the wilds of the Pacific Northwest in 2004 from the foreign land of California. She escaped a long career in which she worked with two Fortune 500 companies, and one Fortune 100 company. What brought her north was an opportunity to purchase a small business in a small town which was where she wanted to raise her kids. Shortly after buying a small retail establishment that specialized in natural foods, and supplements, she recognized that she seemed to have an affinity for the retaining the knowledge that came her way.
In 2007 she attended classes and obtained a certification in Nutritional Therapy. This modality respects bio-individuality and encourages personal accountability for one’s health. Using symptom analysis, Kinesiology, and Lingual-Neural testing, she helps the individual identify nutritional deficiencies and assists in getting them back to optimal wellness.
Her passion is creation, the outdoors. Much of the time in the summer, she can be found in the woods, identifying medicinal plants, wild crafting and making her own medicines, salves and teas. After successfully home-schooling her children, she has now entered a new season, and is excited about sharing that with We Resisters Radio listeners.
Join together, all nations, cultures and traditions:
Global Medicine Wheel Ceremony
December 21 (or your local time) Winter Solstice 2014
Please join us for the fall equinox global medicine wheel ceremony. We will have people at Lake Titicaca, Peru, Mt. Shasta, Glastonbury, England and other sites in Europe, India, Maui, on the Big Bear Medicine Wheel, the Grand Teton Medicine Wheel, Eagle and Condor Medicine Wheel, Pacific Northwest Medicine Wheel and many other sites.
You can connect to us in spirit from a point on one of the current medicine wheels or from your own sacred site. As we grow into future solstices and equinoxes we will expand the medicine wheel grid connections until we have many sacred sites on the Earth grids united in ceremony.
We are all connected through the Earth’s ley lines. When we go to our sacred sites to do ceremony, we can collectively clean and clear old programs from the environment and charge the Earth with peace, love, joy and abundance.
There are two large ley lines circling the Earth: the Rainbow Serpent (female) and the Plumed Serpent (male). With ceremonies at each of these sites and the Medicine Wheels connected to them through their sacred points, we connect through our hearts and send energy through the Earth’s sacred energy lines.
You can see how this works on our website at www.earthwisdomfoundation.net/upcoming_ceremonies.html .
As you go to your sacred site, connect to all of us at the other points. The energy from our hearts will connect and the ley lines will be cleaned and cleared, then charged with peace, love, joy, harmony and abundance.
As you can see with the events that are going on around us so many of our young men are falling prey to violence and some even death. My assisgnment on today is a very difficult but the urgency in my spirit says it is needful. My prayer is that it will encourage and inspire as well as strengthen. We as parents must realize that it is important to teach our children natural things but as well spiritual things. The society that we live in has changed so much since the days of our ancestors and it is time that we sit our children down and let them hear what thus says the Lord for the church. Please gather your family, including your children to join us this morning at 11:30am CST for what will surely be a life changing experience in God.
I know you missed "Food for Medicine", just as much as we did! Be sure to join your favorite health duos Dr. Afivi Adiro, and Kenya Jones tomorrow August 22nd 2104, as we tackle Dis-Eases that can be eliminated by eating the right foods.

Meet author Stephen W. Hiemstra. I'll be interviewing him about his book, A Christian Guide to Spirituality: Foundations for Disciples
About the book:
A Christian Guide to Spirituality takes the form of 50 daily devotions. Each topic is treated with a scriptural reference, reflection, prayer, and questions for discussion. Occasionally, references are provided for further study. The first four chapters (Introduction, Apostle’s Creed, Lord’s Prayer, and Ten Commandments) cover 40 days making them suitable as a Lenten study. Ten additional days focus on the spiritual disciplines and a short conclusion. Fifty days of study allow an Easter study running through Pentecost.
About the author:
Author Stephen W. Hiemstra (MDiv, PhD) is a slave of Christ, husband, father, tentmaker, economist, and writer. He lives with Maryam, his wife of thirty years, in Centreville, VA and they have three grown children.
Stephen has been an active writer spanning both his career as an economist and a pastor. As an economist of 27 years in 5 federal agencies, he published numerous government studies, magazine articles, and book reviews. He has maintained a personal website since the 1990s and he has been active in social media. A Christian Guide to Spirituality is his first published book.
Stephen is currently a second career tentmaker dividing his time equally between Hispanic ministry and blogging under a theme of “online pastor”. As a hospital chaplain intern, he worked in the emergency department, a psychiatric unit, and an Alzheimer’s unit. He is an elder in Centreville Presbyterian Church.
