I have done several shows about Lymphedema and the grassroots efforts to get the Lymphedema Treatment Bill passed. This one came from an original airing of 5/1/10.
"Back in March, we had a show introducting you to the HR 4662 which involves the improvement for health care costs for lymphedema patients. Please join us again today to learn what has been done, what you can do, and what this means to you if you (or someone you know) has lymphedema. We need to get this bill passed in this year's legislation session. We will have Jennifer and Jenny on our show, as well as some other pertinent people that can add more to enlighten about this very important bill." http://www.blogtalkradio.com/oralhistory/2010/05/01/beyond-words-live--understanding-hb-4662
BEYOND WORDS LIVE is designed as a platform for survivors to tell their own stories in their own words.

CNN Reports: U.S. troops assisting in Ebola mission may be quarantined - http://www.cnn.com/2014/10/15/us/ebola-us-troops/index.html
We were first told that the 4.000 U.S. troops that President Obama ordered to Liberia would not be in direct contact with Ebola patients.
The Pentagon has now confirmed that some troops will be in direct contact with persons infected with the deadly virus.
The President's decision is irresponsible to say the least. Many of these troops have zero experience in dealing with a deadly virus such as Ebola.
Why were private contractors not used for this mission? If our soldiers are infected, will they be used as an Ebola vaccine testing group?

Dr. Stanley Rockson (of Stanford University Medical School) states that: "Lymphedema is a common disease. Approximately 10 million Americans, for example, have lymphedema secondary to breast and pelvic cancer therapy, recurrent infections, injuries, or vascular surgery." (2010) Imagine, if there were approximately 10 million Americans then, how many more there are now in 2014 (knowing that there is no cure for it as it stands to date)?
For many years, I had key advocates come on my show to discuss various cases and, especially, the aspects of advocating in the legislature. On January 27th, Heather Ferguson (one of those advocates) will come on my show to discuss some updates on those legislative issues being presented.
Today, though, I will open the mic up to patients, advocates, and caregivers especially to tell their stories on how Lymphedema has affected them. We will then share this with legislators to personally hear the many stories typical to illustrate the pervasiveness of this condition.
Please mark your calendars and join us on March 6th at 10a CST to share and/or be better informed about these issues.
September 18, 2014: Choosing Wisely is a national campaign to promote conversations between health care providers and patients about utilizing the most appropriate tests and treatments, and avoiding care whose harm may outweigh the benefits.
The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) joined the campaign, initiated by the American Board of Internal Medicine Foundation, and created a list of "5 Things Physical Therapists and Patients Should Question." In this episode, two physical therapists examine this list and discuss how this effort aims to educate consumers on health care procedures that tend to be done frequently, yet whose usefulness is called into question by evidence.

Hysteria over the outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus is surpassing the previous hysteria over what use to be considered a death sentence, the AIDS virus. Today's disease control experts appear unsure how the Ebola virus spreads: is it through contact with body fluids, like AIDS? Or is it airborne? Can it be transmitted by insects, such as flies or mosquitoes? How effective are these "experimental drugs" being used to treat certain patients? Will people without health insurance who contact Ebola be left to suffer and die? And the big question: is this a deliberately manufactured disease for the purpose of "population control" on the African continent
The Christine Upchurch Show: How to Remain Fully Alive with a Life Limiting Illness with guest Judy Flickinger. Why do we die so miserably? What physicians aren't taught and what they don't know about the needs of the dying. The most important lessons this hospice nurse learned from her patients and their loved ones. "The Conversation" at a family gathering.
July 2013 Tom Edwards discussed what it was like to have and be treated for Prostrate Cancer. He took us from the bedroom to the bathroom and all things in between.
He joins us again to share what he has learned and what you should know.
Tom Edwards and I discuss what he encountered after being diagnosed with Prostate Cancer. Tom gives us a first hand look into the challenges he encountered. What is also dicussed is why living the healthy lifestyle may not have prevented this but it did give him options.

Strategies of Success
Host Brian A Cohen DTM
Fraud and deception have become business as usual. Witness some of the following:
College athletes were taking faking fake courses to maintain passing grades. This was ongoing for years with the apparet blessing or incredible ignorance of faculty and administrators.
Three states now have vote by mail. What could possibly go wrong with that? How much will a blank ballot sell for on the black market? Maybe they can be traded for drugs.
Can those voting macines be trusted? In early voting, a machine was discovered to be changing votes--in favor of the Democrats, of course.
Illegal immigrants are on the voter rolls. Bogus birth dates are allowed in New York City, with 850 voters listed as 164 years old. Does this prove life after death?
Ebola is spreading. Is the CDC lying, or is it simply incompetent? Apparent ebola patients are beinng "disappeared."
Hazmat gear is being removed from some hospitals. You don't want to create a panic. Right? Workers are expendible.
The US is simultaniously arming and fighting islamic militants.
Meanwhile on the police front:
Police spray 600 bullets into a car containing bank robbery hostage Misty Holt Singh. It's like sharks in a feeding frenzy. It's also murder.
Some cities in the Hampton Roads area have put together an NSA-style database of phone data from seized phones. If the wrong people have you listed in their contacts, maybe you could be a suspect.
Kudos to the Secret Service for getting one right. They let loose the dogs and promptly stopped another fence jumper. This begs the question: is a simple iron fence adequate?
Preliminary evidence indicates that the Ferguson MO police actually did shoot Michael Brown in self-defense. It is unlikely that facts will get in the way of what's to come. Get ready for more riots.
Every once and a while the man who would be SevsDeadSerious really has to look at all that goes on and make fun of it not for my own comedic skills but to remind all that listen, archive and even ignore should know that today you will see what a funny fellow exists within the mind that the aforementioned possess...if only outwardly. Having said that, a doctor who was working in Liberia with Ebola patients has contracted what is there Ebola but here, thanks to the rampant stupidity of the news media spread to the unsuspecting and generally clueless population shall be called once it enters this country, Fearbola...owing to the braying asses that portray them as the news. And Honey Boo-Boo's mom June Boo-Boo made a big boo-boo when her next boo-boo after June Boo-Boo dumped Sugar Bear Boo-Boo turns out that he did 10 years on a child molestation boo-boo...and that's a big BOO-BOO!
Frank discussions with Dialysis patient's, healthcare workers, doctors and clinics about care issues in Dialysis.
