    Healing with Dr Daniels- Patient Autonomy or Something More Sinister?

    in Health

    Please join Dr Jennifer Daniels on February 24, 2015 at 6pm EDT for the Healing with Dr Daniels Show.


    Today's topic is: Patient Autonomy or Something More Sinister?


    The FDA has just approved a genetic test for consumers to use at home without a Doctor’s permission.  Patients can now freely purchase this genetic test and get the results.  Is this an advance in patient autonomy?  Or is there something more sinister?   Dr Daniels reviews the accuracy of the test, the purpose of the test and how you can sidestep this plan to ensnare you in the Standard of Care. Tune in.  Think Happens.


    What’s Hot, What’s Not. Tune as Dr Daniels gives her best picks as to the up coming trends in Healing, self - care, health care and healing. You heard it first here. Think Happens..

    PATIENT TERMINATED, BLACKBALLED LEFT WITH NO CHOICE BUT HOSPICE.

    in Health

    A discussion with the Wife of patient that after complaining of his level of care and the workers in the clinic, he was terminated for what appears to be trumped up reasons. He has since been blackballed from other clinics in his area; with no clinic to go to he has been forced into HOSPICE.


    This appears to be an ongoing problem with DCI, Fresenius and Davita. This patient was a Davita patient. Dialysis Advocates went to their Legal Department and Javier Rodriguez the CEO of Davita. It appears that no one cares at the CEO level; we’ve asked him and the Legal Department to help with this patient. Nothing came from our request to CMS to help this patient who had no appeal and is not allowed to face his accuser. 


    This is happening much too often in too many clinics where complaining about care or workers leads to retaliation. What if any investigation is done at the clinic level is often poorly done and biased in favor of the worker or clinic. Patients are not allowed to see the results of an investigation nor are they allowed to face their accuser. A patient it appears has to go to legal to clean up a record they are not allowed to see.


    We are having too many patients with the same situation Nationwide. One even having to strip down naked before getting dialysis.

    Developmental Delays and 5p-

    in Health

    Mike and Joyce speak with Laura Castillo, Executive Director of FivePMinus.org, helping families affected by Cri du Chat (Cat Cry) Syndrome (CdCs).


    Babies born with CdCs are characterized at birth by a high-pitched cry, low birth weight, poor muscle tone, microcephaly, and potential medical complications.  "5p-" is a term used by geneticists to describe a portion of the short arm of chromosome number five that is missing in these individuals.  Some of the facial characteristics include:



    Round "moon shaped" face
    Small upturned nose at birth
    Small or low set chin (micrognathis)
    Low positioned ears
    Downward slanting of the eyes
    Wide spaced eyes
    Extra skin fold at the inner corner of one or both eyes (epicanthal fold)


    These facial features usually elongate as the child enters adulthood.  Children with CdCs are often also diagnosed with autism since many of the developmental issues are similar.


    There is a great deal of good information on this syndrome on their website.  See especially http://www.fivepminus.org/Development


    Laura shares with us the origins of the 5p- Society, the national family support group for individuals with Cri du Chat Syndrome.  They group shares expeerience and provides support to individuals and families affected by CdCs, sharing strategies for managing the syndrome and supporting their children in achieving his or her maximum potential  Children with Cri du Chat Syndrome can lead full and meaningful lives with love and support.

    EXERCISING PATIENT FAITH

    in Prayer

         Faith often requires waiting patiently before God and being prepared to wait for HIS seeming long delays in answering prayer. While we are waiting our faith does not get distorted. We take HIM at HIS Word and let HIM take what time HE chooses in fulfilling HIS purposes and in carrying out HIS work.Faityh is bound to encounter delays and long days of waiting, but faith accepts the conditions. It regards such delays as times of testing and is priviledged to demonstrate that it is made of courage and perseverance. Join us for live prayer at 6:00 AM Mon.-Fri. Dial 714.459.3963.

    Adrenaline and Your Health

    in Health

    Dr Michael Platt has published a book, "Adrenaline Dominance: A Revolutionary Approach to Wellness".  He examines the role that adrenaline may plan in a number of conditions that are quite often misunderstood, including ADHD, Irritable bowel syndrome, PTSD and Autism.  He offers dietary ways to control the over-production of adrenaline.


    With a background in diseases that cause pheochromocytoma -- a tumor that causes over-production of adrenaline -- Joyce is eager to discuss with him how to differentiate between pheos and the kind of medically treatable adrenaline dominance that he discusses in his book.  Pheos are difficult to diagnose, and they notoriously do not respond to medical treatment.  Undiagnosed pheos can be life-threatening if they are not diagnosed and removed, especially during pregnancy.  Some pheos can even metastasize.  If you have a pheo, it is extremely important to diagnose and remove this dangerous tumor.  Pheos are also sometimes called paragangliomas, especially when they occur in the region of the chest or neck.  They can occur anywhere from the earlobe to the groin, on either side of the body, along the sympathetic nervous system.


    Please listen and participate in this discussion.  


    For more information on pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma, please see
    http://www.pheoparatroopers.org/information/about-pheo-para/
    https://science.nichd.nih.gov/confluence/display/pheo


    There are more than 20 tiny genetic flaws that can increase one's chance of having a pheo or para.  If you know that any of these conditions runs in your family, be sure to get tested for the presence of one of these tumors before embarking on Dr. Platt's treatments.  It will be easier to diagnose the pheo-para before this treatment.
