The Department of Health of today functions as both the state regulatory agency and the territorial public health agency for the U.S. Virgin Islands.
As set forth by the Virgin Islands Code, Titles 3 and 19, the Department of Health (DOH) has direct responsibility for conducting programs of preventive medicine, including special programs in Maternal and Child Health, Family Planning, Environmental Sanitation, Mental Health, and Drug and Substance Abuse Prevention.
DOH also is responsible for health promotion and protection, regulation of health care providers and facilities, and policy development and planning, as well as maintaining the vital statistics for the population.
DOH provides Emergency Medical Services, issues birth and death certificates, performs environmental health services, and conducts health research and surveys. The Department is also responsible for regulating and licensing health care providers and facilities, and assumes primary responsibility for the health of the community in the event of a disaster.
An Obstetrician, Surgeon and General Practitioner, Dr. Knud Knud-Hansen was born in Denmark. He received his early education in Copenhagen and upon completion he entered the University to pursue a medical career. Dr. Hansen in his autobiography, From Denmark to the Virgin Islands, describes these years as "long years of happy misery". To support himself through medical school he taught Zoology in a Miss West's Higher Girls School and doubled as a news critic for a newspaper syndicate.
When slaves became ill or their sense of justice was stifled, they often sought help in the spiritual world and went to the “Obeah man”. With rituals and magical objects, he could restore health and a sense of justice.

Thursday, February 11th at 6:00 PM, on Health Media LIVE, we'll speak with Neil and Andrea Garvey, publishers of Creations Magazine, about how technology will help us access the best, least expensive, GMO-Free food options through their online grocery at www.CreationsCleanFood.com Imagine a time when our food will be delivered straight from a local farm to our door overnight. The possibilities are endless, healthy, and very promising.

A Certified Holistic Health Coach (Institute of Integrative Nutrition), Neil spent the previous 22 years as a natural foods retail shop owner, starting up and operating six stores, including a vegan eatery.

Before the year 2000, very few doctors ever considered the possibility that you might be vitamin D deficient, however, as the technology to measure vitamin D became inexpensive and widely available, more and more studies were done and it became increasingly clear that vitamin D deficiency was absolutely rampant. Vitamin D deficiency is incredibly common in the US but many Americans mistakenly believe they aren't at risk because they consume vitamin-D-fortified foods (such as milk). There are very few foods that actually have therapeutic levels of vitamin D naturally and even fortified foods do not contain enough vitamin D to support your health needs
Some signs that may indicate you are at risk of Vitamin D deficiency are: you have darker skin, you feel “blue,” you are 50 or older, you are overweight/obese/have a higher muscle mass, your bones ache, you have a sweaty head, and/or you have Gut trouble. A new study has found that an insufficient level of vitamin D in older adults doubles the risk of Alzheimer ’s disease. But it’s not just older folks who aren’t getting enough of the sunshine vitamin; most kids don’t get sufficient amounts either.
What is vitamin D? Why is it important? Why aren’t people getting enough? And what are its best food sources? Join us on HEALTH OUTSIDE THE BOX to learn answers to these questions, what to do about it and MORE!
Zika! Ebola! Swine Flu! We're constantly bombarded with new and even more scary viral threats to public health in the media. But how legitimate are these threats? And how complicit is the media in fearmongering? Today on the Health and Wellness show we'll cover these topics and more. How does this process of hype happen, what could it be covering up, if anything, and who are the real victims here? We'll also discuss other threats to public health that are not as discussed as these "viral" stories.
Joining us as always will be Zoya with the Pet Health segment. Be sure to tune into the Health and Wellness show on the SOTT Radio Network every Friday at 10am EST US. Thanks for listening!
