    Violet ReikiRadio - Guest Sheldon Marc Feldman M.D. FACS,

    in Health

    Dr. Sheldon Feldman is chief of breast surgery at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center and assistant professor of surgery at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons where he oversees the breast cancer surgery program at the Comprehensive Breast Center of the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia, and work in close collaboration with a multidisciplinary team of radiologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, plastic surgeons and other breast cancer support staff.


    Dr. Feldman is helping to pioneer the use of the ductoscope, a tiny endoscope inserted through the patient's nipple used for diagnosis, surveillance and treatment of cancer patients. His research using the device may help lead to a simple test for early diagnosis that could eventually be the equivalent of a Pap smear for breast cancer. Dr. Feldman anticipates that the intraductal approach will ultimately be used to treat early breast cancer as well as ablating the milk ducts to prevent cancer development for high-risk women as an alternative to mastectomy.


    A leader in minimally invasive breast cancer surgery, Dr. Feldman was instrumental in developing the transmammary axillary lymph node evaluation (TANE) procedure, which requires only a single incision for lumpectomy and sentinel lymph node biopsy. He is also an expert in oncoplastic skin-sparing and nipple-preserving mastectomy.


    His research interests are focused on preventing the disease through a better understanding of environmental toxins linked to breast cancer, including chlorinated pesticides, PCBs and PBDEs, and he is helping to investigate new biopharmaceutical treatments, including green tea extract and vitamin D.

    Intentional Peer Support Responds to AOT/ Forced Psychiatry

    in Self Help

    Intentional Peer Support Responds to AOT/ Forced Psychiatry!  Chris Hansen, Director of Intentional Peer Support, describes a principled, relational alternative to forced psychiatric interventions like AOT (Assisted Outpatient Treatment).  Chris has been promoting, developing and training peers worldwide in Intentional Peer Support for a decade.  She has assisted the development of numerous peer-run crisis respites in a number of countries.  Before her work in Intentional Peer Support, Chris served as an advisor to New Zealand mental health services and on the board for the World Network of Users and Survivors of Psychiatry.  She was a member of the New Zealand delegation to the United Nations to develop the Convention for the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. In this episode, Chris describes what Intentional Peer Support is and how it came to be developed as an alternative to force and coercion in mental health.  She shares her experience (both lived and work-related) of how and why forced treatments (like AOT) are damaging.  Shel explains why many people believe that alternatives need to be happening, what some of these alternatives are, and how they might come to be more broadly available to people who want them.  Sponsored by Peerly Human Radio - Radio at the heart of humanity.

    The D-Low on Low T

    in Health

    Low T, you've heard about it.  Probably seen commercials for treatment, even at the gym!  Low T is a lack of testosterone and can cause problems not just in your sex life but daily life as well. 


    Testoserone helps:



    Maintain reproductive tissues
    Stimulate sperm production
    Stimulate and maintain sexual function
    Increase muscle mass and strength
    Maintain bone strength


    You've probably heard about treatments for Low T as well, such as testerone replacement therapy, including: Gels, Patches, Injections, Tablets and Pellets.


    Testosterone therapy can raise a man's risk for blood clots and stroke. Uncommon side effects include sleep apnea, acne, and breast enlargement. All such side effects go away if treatment is stopped.


    Heart attack law suits are running rampant in regards to this treatment.  Why risk these side effects when you can fix it naturally.  I did and I will teach you how on the next WellFit Radio Chicago!

    Bob Darby, Advocate for Homeless People #4

    in Politics Progressive

    BOB DARBY, ADVOCATE FOR THE HOMELESS  - Thursdays, 3:00 p.m. EST ~ War on Homeless People in USA - Darby has been an advocate for the homeless for more than twenty years.  Please call to speak on air at (347) 857-3293 for all broadcasts. He has a B.A. in psychology from Emory University. Darby also studied in psychology and theology in graduate school. He is a former employee of Georgia Regional Hospital, Boston State Hospital, and New Hampshire's Hanover-Darthmouth Hospital. In 1994, he co-founded Atlanta Food Not Bombs. Darby is a writer and public speaker, who bravely covers subjects such as eugenics and the homeless. He also exposes how drug trafficking by U.S. officials contributes to homelessness, imprisonment and deaths of marginalized people. LAPD killed a homeless, mentally ill black man days ago. See the video http://youtu.be/YO0FG4-tMe8


    Darby asserts drug additions that lead to homelessness were partly facilitated by the CIA, which began trafficking herion, crack and other drugs into America years ago, sometimes inside the corpses of deceased American soldiers. He cites documented proof from government records and books by respected journalists. Bob also asserts that people with serious mental illness are deliberately rendered homeless in the United States of America and deprived of psychiatric and medical health care services.


    Voters should petition elected officials to improve treatment and subsistence assistance for mentally ill people and those with substance abuse issues. Please use this link to contact your elected officials:
