Personalized brain stimulation alleviates severe depression symptoms
"Two studies out today suggest ways to improve treatments for depression and obsessive compulsive behavior. Using brain stimulation. Thea Pro just delivers pulses of electric or magnetic energy to certain areas in the brain. Scientists report that stimulation is more effective when it is customized for each patient. MPR's Jon Hamilton has more Brain stimulation is usually reserved for people who haven't been helped by drugs or other treatments. People like this woman in her thirties who had severe unrelenting depression, the world was slow. And gray and flat. Everything kind of tasted the same. No actual sense of enjoyment or No ability to imagine NPR agreed not to use the woman's name to protect her medical privacy. After five years of searching for help, she got into a study run by Dr Katherine Scan. Gus of the University of California San Francisco. Scandals is part of a team trying to improve deep brain stimulation, which implants wires in the brain to deliver tiny pulses of electricity. Traditional deep brain stimulation has typically stimulated in one location. In every patient without really an understanding of how that effects each individual's depression symptoms. Scandals thought she might be able to relieve the woman's depression using a different approach. So she created a map of her patient's brain that showed which area was associated with each symptom. She had an iPad and she marked off her level of depression and anxiety. An energy level in response to each pulse of neuromodulation. Then scandals used that information to design a deep brain stimulation system that monitored these areas and delivered pulses on Lee when there were signs of trouble. Our goal is to develop a brain pacemaker. That can nudge these depressions circuits back into their healthy state and keep them there. And for this patient, it worked, she recalls. The first time doctors stimulated one particular area of her brain. I wasn't really expecting anything to happen, and then suddenly It was this kind of wash off the sense of pleasurable happiness and glee, and I literally think I giggled. She says The implanted stimulator she went home with is still doing its job. Months later. The world is Is back. I'm back. I feel like myself again. A personalized approach to brain stimulation also seemed to help people with obsessive compulsive behaviors. Trade. Grover, a graduate student at Boston University, was part of a team that studied people who had thoughts that wouldn't go away or behaviors that they felt compelled to repeat, checking whether we've switched the stove off or not. Have you washed her hands enough in, particularly in times like ours today in the pandemic, Such behaviors can be exacerbated. The team knew that these kinds of behaviors are linked to problems in the brain's reward network. So they studied the activity in this network for about 60 patients. Then they devised a unique stimulation treatment for each person. Grover says The treatment sends pulses of alternating current through electrodes placed on the scalp. It allows us to stimulate the brain. And mimic the kinds off Ray to make activity patterns that are typically associated with healthy behavior, He says. People who got the treatment instead of a placebo got better. By the fifth day of stimulation, obsessive compulsive behaviors had significantly reduced. On average. There was a 28% reduction, and Grover says the treatment works best on people with the most severe symptoms. Both studies appear in the journal Nature Medicine. Jon Hamilton NPR news
Finding that Relaxation Mode with Dr. V
"I'm so excited to be here with you into share some personal thoughts about my second healing journey and essential number four. Heal the emotional wounds now. When i was going through my second healing i recognized that there was the need to really take a deep dive. Into all of these central's the today. I'm going to talk specifically about essential number four because i feel that healing emotional wounds is often the most challenging part of healing. We are multitaskers. We are really good at taking care of people but we often tend to neglect ourselves. And we put ourselves last on the to-do list. And so i want to really encourage you to listen closely and if any of the things that i talk about really resonate with you i encourage you to ride them in your journal are riding on a post it note. But go back to this after you've listened to the podcast because these are the things that can truly be transformational. Remember that a breast cancer. Healing journey is not just about getting rid of the the lump or the cancer. But it's about a complete transformation of your life because what brought you to the point of developing breast cancer in the first place is what you need to change. So it's about transformation is like that cocoon the caterpillar cocoon to the butterfly. Its transformation now personally. My biggest takeaways from my healing journey as far as my emotions are concerned. Were two things number one. I recognized for the first time in my life what it was like to live in the relaxation response. All my life. I had my nose to the grindstone and i was a personality. Push push push. Even when i didn't physically feel like pushing. I would push my body to the point of a new my detriment now. Getting into the relaxation response is something that is so key because if we have our foot on the accelerator and we are activating the sympathetic nervous system. The fighter flight mode there studies that have shown us that that can literally trigger cancer genes to turn on and it increases the risk for metastasis. So that alone should be a motivation for you to look at essential number four and to learn to get into the relaxation response. I have trained my body and my mind that when i feel stress in my body i stop and i pulled back and i am. I really make the effort to go into that relaxation mode the second big takeaway for me on my second healing journey was that i now take the time to nurture that little girl. That little girl inside of me was very wounded. Little girl for decades not until late forties early fifties. Did i realize that. I was living the life of an adult but with the wounded child making those decisions for me and so now i take the time to do more things that bring me joy in that little girl joy and do more things that that bring pleasure because that's something that i neglected most of my life so when we talk about healing our emotions are several things we we want to look at first of all. If you're a good stuffer do you find that. You're always fine. Know people ask you how you doing on fine. That's what we call a good stuffer right. We we have feelings. We have thoughts. We have energy but we just keep swallowing swallowing swallowing. Because we don't wanna take the time to really take a look at what's what's happening. What's bothering us. There's a quote from dr lisa. Rankin that. I really like. When i read her book a mind over medicine and she says if you don't grow you grow a tumor. And that's so true because not internal conflicts that we have causes a stress response. You may not recognize it as a stress response. Perhaps you're used to living that way that tension that you have
Mental health mailbag with Dr. Sarah Jukaku
"My guest today is the one and only doctor sarraj mkaku. She is a psychiatrist who specializes in mental health among young people and in college mental health. She's also my wife of fourteen plus years my best friend. Thanks for doing the show. Fatemi again all right so today's episode is we're gonna focus on some questions from listeners like you this has been a challenging year obviously because of the pandemic and also the challenging political year. And then the fact that you know we are going into a holiday season that already is the source of a lot of anxiety for a lot of folks without our loved ones and so we want to answer some of your questions. So the first question is from grant vice. You have graduating medical students entering residency in these wild times. How should we mentally prepare. Hi grant thanks for your question. I think dealing with death as a physician is a totally different experience. I still remember the first death. I had to quote unquote call when i was a resident on my medicine rotation and it's kind of something that stays with you forever. Mean what i would say. In general as part of preparing for residency is trying to figure out. What are the things that make you feel whole and healthy and keeping a plan of trying to engage in at least the bare minimum so for some people that might be exercised that might be keeping in touch with loved ones. It's going to be extra stressful for you at this time because not only are you starting as resident but obviously we're in a global pandemic and that's going to be much more stress and i think it's already a good sign that you're thinking about this beforehand but trying to find out what your program offers and what resources you'll get as a resident and access to therapy or even just group kind of support sessions with your co residents leaning on each other. I think is important and if you need more help than that finding an individual therapist and other treatments specific to you and not feeling embarrassed to engage in that because this is a wild time like you said it's important to take those steps preventatively. Only i'll add grant is it's worth before you go into the thing knowing that you're gonna go into really hard asking. What are those things you want. You wanna keep a part of your life and trying your hardest within the context of a really crazy schedule to try and keep those things because they sent her yuda to who. You are caroline. Mom was originally going to fly from chicago to denver to see me for christmas. I told her we would be doing a virtual christmas instead now. She won't speak to me in thinks i'm overreacting giving into irrational fear quote unquote. She hasn't really been taking it seriously. From the beginning despite her being on immunosuppressants any advice on how to help understand that this was necessary. Not worth the risk in in her best interest. So i think this is a tough situation and i think there are a lot of people going through this and you know i don't. Nb that conversation. But at the same time the advice that i often give a lot of people are my patients is that sometimes it's easier to just kind of cut through it all and talk to someone's feelings rather than the specifics of the situation so i would personally approach it from more of a perspective of seeing that like this really sucks for your mom and you would rather be with her in you hear that you know she's gonna miss having her daughter there and it's going to be lonely in. It's not going to be the same christmas and that you know you're really sad about it too and you wish were different and that you get her perspective but that you know you really do love her. And this is why you're not coming and i think that would be better than getting into the nitty gritty about the pandemic itself. Because i think there are people who are you. Know hondo in denial but a lot of that is because it's painful to you know face that fear of oh i'm one of those people whose high risk and i'm the one that everyone's kind of putting restrictions on the most so that's what i would say. I agree with that. So i think the ability to to ask why she's behaving this way not just to try and rebut her feelings. I think is really important here and you know when we talk about irrationally right. Obviously she saying you're being irrational. We all know the facts that she's being rational but you know sometimes the thing we have to remember that people aren't rational. People are extremely complex and very emotional. And sometimes their emotions don't translate directly in so her being cavalier about. This may actually be a lot more about an underlying fear that she has so being able to dignify that fear and also being able to remind her. That's really love her and that you wish you could be with her and that you're doing all this so that you can be together next year i think is really important than And so i say don't give into the instinct to try and prove her wrong That usually doesn't help.

So where did you grow up as a kid. And what was life like back then. So i grew up in yorkshire in northern england In the nineteen seventies. I was growing up and even from a very young age. I always had a kind of questioning attitude towards reality. I was looking around at the behavior of adults around me. And somehow i it was all a bit kind of strange bit odd and I in my early life. I was really trying to figure things out from the mind. I was living from here up. So when i go into my teens. I was very interested in philosophy for example and so that was my main approach. That point asking questions reading and Kind of quite an intellectual approach. When i was nineteen. I kind of a an initiation experience by coming into a relationship with an older woman who basically reintroduced me to life of the body. And i started to really explo- what is to try to land here in a body on the planet being present and starting to open up emotionally. Because i've been quite down had been chronically shy and so you know i was really in need of quite some healing and desperation. Very powerful motivator. An i felt very powerfully created to try and make some changes about things working. I think a lot of people that really carrying an i was certainly carrying a load of conditioned ideas that i picked up just from the society around me through the education system song and the ideas really wouldn't helping me in the main they were kind of screwing me up a little bit lot and causing the pain and frustration in various parts of my life. So i really made it a decision to try to heal and move. I went on that journey. I felt so strongly that i wanted to share. Those things that had worked for me to i would pass them onto others college guard and so as you shared the story you had you want in a relationship at your nineteen years of age and you feel the need for healing. So what about your life. Conditions are about what you're going through at that time media realized that you need heating in the first place I think relationship gives us a very powerful mira and through Through love to the power of love and through the power of what was being shared with me. What was being worked in. May i. I was feeling my own limitation. I was feeling my own sense of Burdens in confusion. And like i say. I already had quite keen. Mind an active mind but he was I was very Wanting to open two dimensions of self dimensions of myself and then somehow bring them into integration. And a wholeness and in a way. That's that's being a large theme of the journey and maybe the theme of the journey for all of us to lee what i call remember to bring together all the Verse that we might have repressed. Forgotten those parts of Split off fragmented and to bring them back into a hominy. And to remember the basically we have a hearing one one body

Because i do these sessions from my tiny bedroom on main street in vancouver. My goal now is to get to the top ten list and that is not easy because some of the other podcasts within the top twenty section are really large corporations or have dedicated marketing deems to promote their podcast episodes in a big way. But i trust in the force of action tribe are action tribe listeners around the world because we have the power of the heart. So if you are on iphone data that's subscribe button or hit follow if you're on spotify because that has a direct effect on our rankings. Something amazing is happening right now. Because i'm noticing an increase in subscription rates. Right now eighty two percent of you are subscribers and percent of you are either new are. You're not subscribed so by just hating that. Subscribe button right now. You can make all the difference now. While i know that many of you have been listening to our show for years together and you've been sharing it with your balancing your friends and your clients. I do know that we have many areas of improvement. And sometimes i feel guilty and impatient because our vision for my seven chokers is so much more than where we are right now and i know that for you to feel confident in shedding an episode. It has to be really really good right because if friend or your family member or an acquaintance if they like it it makes you look good. It makes you feel good right as we leave. The survey there are many of you are filled. And if you haven't shared your opinions yet please take a few minutes to fill in this quick survey which will find at seven jerkers dot com forward slash survey twenty twenty. That's our website dot com forward slash soviet twenty twenty but here are some insights that i received from the survey along with what we're doing to address them. One of the questions. I asked him to soviet is are there any areas of improvement for us. Here are some interesting things that have said number one. Mike said sometimes. The guest has a microphone wall on lou when the episode plays i have to change the william depending on who is speaking. And then someone said. Sometimes the guests are hard to hear. But i think that is strictly a sound issue on their part as they are being interviewed from remote parts of the world and nothing much can be done about that otherwise everything else is great. This was by michael. So i have wrestled with my sound for a while now and i know that sound was not as good as it could be so. I have been bullet of graded my regarding system and what that means is that you should now be able to receive better quality audio and able to record the guest separately so i can increase or decrease their volume independently which should resolve the issue. But just wait for a couple of episodes more to notice that improvement in sound quality. Because i had some episodes that i had recorded prior to his operate. And if you do notice that slight improvement in sound quality please reach out. Let me know. I'd love your feedback number. Two amanda says you have the podcast applauding to the website is better resource to look it shows by topic. There may be like if i want to hear everything about healing which dates sure numbers. Should i go. Do thanks amanda. So i've been a bit unhappy with my word website for a while now and i wanted to make it more functional and useful to you so i changed my website. I chose a simple and functional website or a potentially beautiful and complex one because deep down i m e minimalist so if you go to my website mice. Seven chuck s dot com. Now you'll notice a couple of different things. Firstly if you click on the episode stab you'll see a search function and you can search by topic so if you feel like listening to something in breath work or a rada just search for it and you can start listening and actually seeing episodes that pertain to that particular topic. You can also sign up for our weekly newsletter. Now way you'll get a weekly update on the latest episodes and livestreams and meditations. That we elise. Also i have a weiss north feature wise not show on my website. On the bottom right you'll see a microphone. Icon just click on that blue microphone icon and you'll be able to record a message for me. How awesome is that in. Every gas post has linked to multiple pod casting platforms. If you prefer to listen on apple or spotify or google or stitcher you can click away and listen to our podcast on that particular episode and the goal behind my website is to act as the home base for our show so that you can learn more about me explore whiz to work with me like attending our breath work sessions or watching livestreams and you can find out what other subscribers are saying about our show because we have e demoniac section as well number three bama says i wish i had more time to listen although i enjoy them fully. Some are quite long to get through without interruption and our linked is good anything longer is more difficult to finish okay so this is a really interesting insight. I can imagine that most of you might not be able to finish an episode which tends to be about an hour and a half long eighty five to ninety minutes in one sitting without interruption and especially because of this whole pandemic alert if you might be working at home so initially when you might be listening to our episode in your car. That's not happening right now because you're either at home or maybe you're taking a walk. So lawless jeans right during this pandemic and this is a hard call for me. So my data does me that on average sixty to seventy percent of you complete my longer episodes in one sitting which could mean that the rest of you take another sitting another session to finish the episode or some of you. Don't finish it at awe as a bard geist are empty ending towards longer episodes because some topics are just do complex or too nuanced to finish up in one hour. And as you know i did my dime with it. We talk about their childhood. Their story their beginnings challenges and we explore different sub teams within a particular topic and then towards the end. My goal is to get you some actionable practical ways to implement what you learn into your life right which all of it can take about seventy to eighty minutes and if at from now i'm also going to finish up my episode with these soothing. Breath work session with my guest. Because i want to or deliver. And i want to make our episode a full amazing expedients for you. So that's what you can look forward to breath. work workstation. towards the end. it's going to be a shard. One two to four minutes maybe five. But it's going to be a really relaxing expedients after you get a does off inspiration so if you can't finish episode in one sitting i feel you so digger dine with it and resume from where you left off in your last sitting now before someone said sometimes it will be good to move away from the more spiritual life and work on the more earthly or even the shadow. No i think that's a great point. If you notice. I talk alarm about breath work which can be what spiritual scientific and practical. We discuss ira. Which is very very grounding and centering modality. We discussed nutrition. We have episodes about shadow are coming up and dealing with trauma and much more so our show isn't particularly about spirituality but it is inch- int- wisdom for the modern mind we aren't afraid to explore the duffin mucky topics because on the other side of it is growth and transformation. Yoga is marked union so with every episode. We're going to get united with the light and the darkness and grow our own awareness about ourselves and our relationship to the world around as and i'm so glad that you are part of this journey. Anyone breakfast guys. let's go. I'm leaving for mcdonald's in five seconds.

CDC REMOVES CLAIM VACCINES DO NOT CAUSE AUTISM
"I want to talk about something that i think is perhaps one of the biggest accomplishments that the informed consent action network has been part of the high wire things that we work towards. Wanna talk about a loss that we had against the cdc that took over a year and a half in the making but we announced it earlier. actually last year in march on march third. We finally won a lawsuit against the. We'd been asking questions especially about the connection between back scenes and autism. Which as we know. Mr walsh at the forbes magazine is saying. We don't have evidence of the science that we're talking about that is baseless we will take him to court because of really in some ways what i'm about to talk to you about. We pressed the cdc and said many of the diagnosis of autism are happening at six months old. So that means that if vaccines do contribute to autism it could be in one of those six vaccines on your website and you say scenes do not cause autism. We would like to see every trial. Study that you reference to come to that conclusion that all vaccines do not cause autism and we looked at the first six vaccines and the first six months of life giving it about twenty doses. Things that included be hip hepatitis. B polio. What trials were done to say that those don't cause autism. We know you looked at the mr. But what about the ones especially de tap that so many parents. As i was traveling the country back said we're causing their child's autism right before their eyes. Well the cdc responded in march. We did a show. I explained it to you how he'd won this lawsuit because what they provided was twenty studies that did not address any of those bursts. Six vaccines this would be the equivalent of saying we want you to prove that. Oxycontin is not habit forming at the. Cdc we want all the trials that you reference when you said it's safe and non habit forming and what you provided to us. We're studies of tylenol of advil of nyquil and nothing about the drug we were asking about. This is the same thing that happened. They did not address. Any of the vaccines were asking about. And so because of that admission that they had no proof that the i expect she is do not cause autism. I made an official statement about that line that has sat on the cdc's website on the header for every parent to read every time they had a question about vaccines. Here's what i said back in march so here at the informed consent action network. We're speaking to you. Alex as our and the heads of the cdc in saying it is time for you now to remove this voluntarily from your website because this statement is an abomination of science. And it's an embarrassment to anyone that calls themselves a scientist and if you do not take this down off of your website then you can know that the informed consent action network and everybody the supports us will use every legal means. Necessary to hold you accountable. Thank you very much. Well today i showed you. Sometimes i get fighting mad. There are certain things that push you to a place that you cannot describe and one of them is as a reporter as a that has interviewed people my whole life the year that i spent traveling this nation with the film backs that i made and the thousands of parents those of you out there in our audience. That's so bravely came forward to tell your story about your child regressing into autism immediately after vaccinations many of you told your story and put it online backs dot com carries over a thousand of these stories where people can see with their own is what can happen with the vaccination and talked about this abomination of science and one of the greatest tragedies of all times you know doctors and scientists will say to us. Well sure there's no one-size-fits-all fits all and there's no perfect product and there are some injuries. That's the casualty that we accept to achieve herd immunity well to hear that statement and recognized that these parents told their true. I witness accounts. They weren't taken care of. They were never handed millions of dollars. That it's going to cost to raise their child and even worse as they spoke up and spoke to their doctors. They were made fun of. They were ridiculed for having recognized what had happened to their children and told that maybe they need a therapist to talk to that. Somehow they were delusional. Because of this statement by the cdc every doctor felt it was okay to make fun of these parents and pushed aside the experience that they were having every day of their lives. I can't tell you how important was from the moment that i started this mission. The moment i decided to leave my career in television and make the film vacs that has changed this discussion around the world when i started our nonprofit the informed consent action network and i sat down with errands theory. We said this. This statement is one of the most important things will be a milestone. That will decide the end of this. Why we will not sleep until this statement is removed from the cdc's website last night as we were preparing for what might be legal battle with forbes that is lying about our white papers and the connections between vaccines and autism. We went to go get this link that we could share it and guess what we've found it's gone. It's gone the statement that vaccines do. Not cause autism is over. The cdc will no longer ever stand by that state because of the lawsuits and the pressure brought by the informed consent action network. I cannot understate. I think how important this is for. All of you. Parents out there that have suffered through. This guy had to face it face. Your children brave work. You do to stand for your children and spend all of that money that you have spent to try and heal your children some more successful than others to have to have people insult you. The sanjay gupta's in every single doctor steps on the television or stands in a white smock and told you this scientists settled backseats do not cause autism. Those days are officially now over there over.
"Good morning good afternoon. Good evening wherever you are out there in the world. I cannot tell you how excited i am. The have you joining me here on the high wire. I'm an awesome mood today. Which is surprising. Given the fact that we've been under complete assault by mainstream media all week. But somehow i don't know i'm wired in a way that when someone decides to pick a fight i'm game and so i'm going to take you through that little skirmish this but taking place all week. If you have not been paying attention to your newspapers they went after the fact that we applied for ppp. They finally broke us. They got the heat on the story. They got down there and found out that we actually had our accountant. Reach out to us and then they said to us. Did you know that there's ppp available if you need more money and if you may have to lay off some of your employees and we said wow that would be really helpful right now and so. We filled out all the paperwork. We sent it off and then in a surprising turn of events we gotta check. That helped us keep our employees employees. That's the story that broke this week. It's incredible thing got us red-handed anyway. Let me take you through this ridiculous set of headlines and the stories they thought meant something to you. The trump administration bailed out prominent anti vaccine groups during a pandemic. This is the washington. Post is how it all started the groups that received the loans of the national vaccine information center mccullough health resources the informed consent action network the children's health defense and the ten penny integrative medical center proud to say all of those people are friends of mine according to the center for countering digital hate great name center for countering digital hate what this has to do with haight i've no idea in advocacy group based in the united kingdom. Not even here in america. We're anybody cares about the ppp. That fights misinformation and conducted the research using public documents. Oh my god. They're in the public hidden in the public. The group relied on data released in early december by the small business administration response to a loss from the washington. Post and other news organizations. Well i mean first of all the center for countering digital heat. I'm not how sure how big this is. This is the guy. That's making the rounds. His name's enron ahmed. I actually think that he's running this outfit out of his studio apartment somewhere in the. Uk appears that he found some way to try and make some money to pay his own bills. And i got nothing against that man. I mean if you're out there and somehow you've got to pay your bills. We're all struggling during kobe. Attacking people are trying to make vaccine safe and make sure that nobody's gonna injected with a dangerous product. It's a great idea. You got paid. You got picked up by the washington post and the new york times and forbes and many other news agencies so good on you imron. You got your bills paint here. It is the new york times. Bring it back up. Backsied critics received more than one million in pandemic relief. Loans texas based anti vaccine group receive federal bailout buns in may as pandemic raged texas based anti vaccine group receive federal bailout funds in may as pandemic raged texas tribune texas as here. It is texas based anti vaccine organisation informed. Consent action network was among five anti-boxing grips that collectively received more than eight hundred fifty thousand federal loans from the paycheck protection program. The washington post reported monday. The organization received one hundred sixty six thousand dollars in may according to founder del bates. We don't show that next to know you want to bring it back to me for a second so here it is folks it is true. We filed for ppp for Nearly a dozen. I think it's about ten employees that work for us as you. Well know when things are tough donations. Go down this really did. Save our butts at a managed to help us keep producing this brilliant show and keep the work. We do With our legal team and supplying them with all the information and the lawsuits that we want to file the ppp was amazing. And i wanna thank the government of the united states for it. You know it's true. We may not be here without this fund as many many nonprofits around the country. I'm sure would mirror that sentiment. But here's what's priceless right while they're going after our monumental payout of one hundred and sixty six thousand dollars for employees. The texas tribune. I believe it is a newspaper. I had never heard of prior to this. At the end of their article had to disclose this. Take a look at this disclosure. The texas tribune is a nonprofit local news room and a small business applied for and received a loan through the paycheck protection program in the amount of one million one hundred sixteen thousand six hundred twenty six dollars. Well there you have it. I guess they feel like the paper that i've never heard of deserves that kind of money but the work do here at the high wire certainly should not get those payouts now forbes forbes magazine forbes magazine covered this report antibac- seen groups collected federal. Kobe relief funds. It goes on to say the informed consent action network which is published white papers baselessly linking other common back scenes to autism. Obviously the the entire by the way i did take interviews from everybody except the washington post so happens that it all work we were doing. We did not see the email come in so the washington post reported that we did not respond. I quickly recognized that we had been asleep at the wheel on our website. And so we checked in with forbes and new york times and i made sure to sit down with all of those reporters to try and help them through this deep investigation. They were doing through public records that we put out there to the entire world. But i want to take an opportunity now. Because i think many of you wonder. What's it like to be delving tree on the high wire and we see these going all the time. And i had to tell you i actually have an opportunity to take you through my own private hell which means i have to spend all this time sitting on the phone doing interviews with reporters that do not have a clue about what they're talking about. I know you must agree. This is a non story. This is the only thing that they can attack about with all this going on in the world. They don't wanna talk about the science. They don't want to talk about this vaccine. They don't wanna talk about all the lawsuit. Winds we have against the fda the national institute of health the cdc and hhs they wanna talk about our ppp loan. So yes i think it was was it. Yesterday i had the opportunity The local fox station a sense shannon ryan the reporter to do a call with me an interview me about this very deep intense conversation.
Fevers & Feuds with Dr. Paul Farmer
"State and local governments we remain woefully behind on back seen deployment having administered fourteen million doses. We're supposed to have twenty million by the end of twenty twenty. This is america dissected. I'm your host dr abdul el-sayed and tomorrow we drop the elect from president. Elect joe biden. Shaima i spent part of my childhood in missouri. Where every morning in elementary school. We recited the pledge of allegiance before singing america. The beautiful in the star spangled banner muslim kid in my class. We had one other religious minority my class when she was a jehovah's witness who stay seated for all the pageantry. You remember the song one part of my country. Tis of the goes land where my fathers died. I've never seen that part because my father's just die here and my five year old self. Didn't wanna lie. Every time that line came up dome. I look over to the little girl next to me. See did with her head down and admire the fact that she wouldn't sing it all despite all the other kids doing it. It's really hard to do when you're five. There's something exceptional about that. It was nine thousand nine hundred in the middle of america and this muslim egyptian american kid one generation removed from alexandria egypt is singing hymnals to america and meanwhile the white girl next to him is seated because her faith allow it. But here's the thing. Reverse the roles. Imagine that little muslim american boy decided not to sing the hymnals to america because he understood it to be against his faith would it have been accepted the same way. What about today tomorrow. God willing our government will perform one of the most sacred ceremonies of its very existence the democratic transfer of power. We've done that without bloodshed for hundreds of years until of course this one that too is exceptional. But what you think about that. Same boy hymnals to america in the classroom in nineteen ninety missouri thing about his cousins thousands of miles away. Shouldn't they have the same right to democratic self determination as he does then. Why are we so comfortable. Supporting military regimes in places like egypt. How many people's democratic rights abroad have been stifled by our own short-term national interests the presumed quote unquote stability of this or that national strongman. That classroom it was in a safe well-funded public school where the water was cleaned in. The book shelves were stocked with books and also in a suburb where almost everyone was white. A couple hundred miles away in east saint louis for example. One of the poorest communities in america would have been a very different story that too is exceptional. All of that is american exceptionalism. Remind us that. Exceptionalism is a double edged sword in america often meant justifying our actions abroad simply because we did them or robbing people of the basic necessities of a dignified life while excusing it. Because we are the richest most powerful country in the world and when it comes to this pandemic america to has been exceptional. We account for nearly four hundred thousand of the two million people who've died of covid nineteen one in five global deaths being as we count for only four percent of all people on this earth. Americans are twenty times as likely to die of covid nineteen as our counterparts worldwide from many other countries across the world figured out how to minimize death and disease to this preventable virus through basic consistent collective public health measures we've thrown a hail. Mary bet vaccines because we're unwilling to invest in each other. And guess what the fact that we remain the richest and most powerful country on earth almost delivered us. Our scientists spearheaded the creation of a safe effective vaccine in record time. And then the fact that we've disinvested in public goods and services like state and local health departments for so long meant that we still can't figure out how to get that incredible scientific achievement out to the people it's it really is exceptional. Today we talked to dr paul farmer a renowned medical humanitarian medical anthropologist. Who's written a new book about ebola in west africa. Fevers feuds diamonds. He bola in the ravages of history. The book is chock full of insights about human nature in the face of disease in the context. Far different from wrote in a reminds us that however different we may be in money and power in access our insistence on difference doesn't necessarily make it so and that ending pandemics well that requires the same basic things world around no matter how exceptional you are after the break. America's is brought to you by blinking. I i gotta tell you in zuma really hard to sit down and learn anything anymore. It's not easy when social media's right. They're super addictive and time consuming.

So we talked about this morning and she said mommy. I was just really sleepy. Water rough night last night. We just did not get enough sleep and what it boils down to that. She was just really tired.
NEW SCIENCE OUTLINES RISKS OF MASKING CHILDREN
"Let's look at another public. Health measure masks. A study just came out It looked at fifty states With their masks of their mandates so a comprehensive analysis of fifty states shows greater spread with mask mandates. Yes you've read that right this was From a website called rational ground. That's kind of a conglomeration collection of researchers in data crunchers and Let's look at some of the data here. It's basically put an impressive not to get too deep in it but You see here. From may first to december fifteenth They looked at fifty states for mass. Mandates we calculated it says how many cases per day by population with with mass they found The number seventeen was the number of cases per day. Per one hundred thousand people for states with no mask mandate in place that led to forty one thousand nine hundred and fifty nine cases. A day with no mandate with the mask mandate. It was twenty seven per one. Hundred thousand with the mask mandate in place. That was sixty. Two thousand over sixty two thousand with mass mandate in place so twenty thousand more total with the mask mandate which is which is absolutely shocking information. And you know we. We've heard scott outlets in adviser knock shocking to me jeopardy though. Because i've been saying this right if nobody taught us how to wear masks. We're not wearing masks the way you do in an. Or where you have somebody else scratching your face so that you don't touch your face we don't have somebody that says. Hey you just touched your mask. You'd better throw it out. Did you see it as of this. This politician look at this guy right here. This is why these things don't work. Oh wow the dude. The entire purpose of wearing that massless that that's needs stays inside of the mass. We've seen footage of biden. Do this even tony about himself. Because it doesn't feel natural to blow all of the excrement out of your nose and face into a cloth that's going to remain on your pace so everybody's doing and he's touching it then. He just touched the handles in the seats. I mean i want to do an experiment somewhere in the future where we just hand out mass with some sort of you know Era indoor glow in the dark material and then go through the grocery store after everybody wore them. You would see glow finger hands spots all of your fruit all over your vegetables all over the machine that you put your credit card in because we can't stop touching basis which means we have got to be reading this more when we wear masks even at mass were doing anything whatsoever. Forget about the steam coming out that we're seeing all videos of steam coming out of someone's mask or when i did the vape pen i mean to me. I guess i just had to jump in. You said it was shocking. Yeah maybe shocking to everybody else but those that are watching the high wire amazing incredible. Incredible video has very funny all the data. The people are claiming that they're following data but acting to the con- acting contrary to that as far as our leaders and our health officials when they see these when they see this data. But let's drill down. Deeper let's talk about kids with mask If anybody grabs one thing from this segment please make it. Be this There a study out of germany it was a registry and they looked kids corona children's studies koci was the registry. I results of a german wide registry on mouth. The nose covering mask in children Okay so what. They found on this on october twentieth. Three hundred sixty three doctors were asked to make entries and to make parents and teachers aware of the registry by the twenty sixth of october the registry had been used by twenty thousand three hundred and fifty three people in this publication report. The results from parents who entered data on total to twenty five thousand nine hundred and thirty children law. Now buckle up for this one. Here's the results. The average wearing time with the mask was two hundred. Seventy five minutes per day impairments caused by wearing the masks were reported sixty eight percent of the parents. These include irritability sixty percent headache fifty three percent difficulty concentrating fifty percent less happiness forty-nine percent reluctant to go to school kindergarten forty four percent malays forty two percent impaired learning thirty eight percent in drowsiness or fatigue. Thirty seven percents now. What i didn't add in here was over. Half fifty. Six percent had disrupted sleeping patterns but it says adults need to collectively reflect the circumstances under which they will be willing to take the residual risk upon themselves in favor of enabling. Children have a higher quality of life without having to wear a mask In looking at the research all the research out there the authors write it has been shown that the majority of infected children especially up to age ten develop no or only mild symptoms in rare cases. Children up to the age of ten years developed severe courses of the disease. This weird you know. The one child and two lessons who have died from covid nineteen had Chronic pre existing conditions in europe children under ten years of age rarely seemed to be spreaders in this infection process It also reported in there that children developed new fears. Twenty five percent of did they were developing anxiety anxiety disorders. They're having nightmares of people without facial expressions because the masks and they couldn't identify them. This is you know. I saw someone write about it. I tried to grab the article for the show. But someone wrote about this and said this is basically mandated child abuse is. We're looking at here with this. With this data i absolutely agree. You shouldn't need a study of thirty thousand children to tell you that this isn't good for the psyche of children. Do not see each other smiling. Faces to be told that the air you're breathing could be dangerous or deadly. It's pure insanity especially when we know the science has shown from the beginning that this does not affect children and those scientists the over fifty thousand now the signed onto the great barrington declaration and dr shukri bhakti and many of the world renowned scientists had appeared right on the show also the same thing the one thing we know we should be doing for sure is putting these kids back in school. Let them know role in a hug. Each other be normal because that is your front line to herd immunity and you know but the questions always been like. How's it affect the teachers right. I mean isn't that little kids may be okay but you know what about the teachers. I guess right so yeah. There's been some studies on that. I grabbed a few here and oak. Just wrap this up by looking at looking at the school Infection rate so early on in ireland reported on this. This was in may There was a study of children. schoolchildren in ireland says no evidence of secondary transmission of covid nineteen from children attending school in ireland. This was published in euro surveillance and they looked at six cases. Sick kids that cova. They went to school and they contact tracing Over a silver eleven hundred of their contacts and they found that the only There was there is no transmission to other children or adults within the school setting or other settings. There is a religious ceremonies as well but they found that the only documented transmission was between the adults in a working environment outside of school so it but again only six cases that was in may where we have since so we we go to north carolina. There's a study that just recently came out looking at north carolina schools and turns out some of them did stay open so they they studied those schools. They studied those kids in the transmissions there and it's called incidents in secondary transmission of stars to infection in schools so looking at this was their methods from august fifteenth to october twenty third twenty twenty fifty six schools school districts participating in abc's were open for in person instruction for all nine weeks of the first quarter and agreed track incidences in secondary transmission of sars cova to local health department staff adjudicated secondary transmission superintendents met weekly with abc faculty to share lessons learned and developed prevention methods. So it's pretty pretty in depth process unless the results here we go. The results over nine weeks eleven.
NATURAL IMMUNITY TO COVID LONG- LASTING
"We have a new study. What does help. Immunity turns out is natural immunity. And it's it's certainly a good thing This is on a gizmodo. Good news natural immunity. The coronavirus year's study suggests we reported on this way back when About the possibility of this but this is a study now. Let's that's the headline. let's go beyond that. Let's actually look at the study This is a study. It's titled immunological memory to stars kobe to assess for up to eight months after infection. This was published in the journal. Science and it says in the current study we assess immune memory of all three branches of adaptive immunity cd fourteen cell cdt sal and he moral immunity predominantly cross sectional study of one hundred eighty eight recovered covid nineteen cases extending up to eight months post infections findings have implications for immunity against secondary cove in and thus potential future course of the pandemic. What did they find. They found these antibodies to the spike. Protein was relatively stable over six plus months. Spike specific memory b cells were more abundant at six months than at one month. Post symptom onset stars cova to specific cd. Four t cells and cd eight t cells declined with a half life of three to five months and then finally it says. The percentage of subjects zero positive for stars kobe. To an antibody titre is greater than or equal to twenty at six to eight months post symptom onset so was nine percent so here. We have a pretty you know. I guess this would be what she calls a robust immune response from national immunity. And really this should put the death nail into that discussion. Well we're not sure that there's long term immunity like every other disease. You ever caught your entire life for illness or cold or flu or anything else This may be a different type of virus. But now we're recognizing that that's not true and it's been very problematic right. It's sort of on again off again as well. There's no long term immunity but then they realized but then that would mean them vaccine wouldn't work so maybe there is but now we're really getting down to the truth right while biser and and madonna are admitting that they don't believe that the vaccine or have no proof that vaccine stops the infection or or stops transmission the. Who is backed up saying that. There's no proof the vaccine does that what we're seeing. This study saying. That actually catching the illness does do that. For at least eight months and eight months as long as we've had to look at it right. What they're saying is but the extent of the time that this virus has been around. Those that are are not being reinfected seem to be holding onto strong immunity. Great news pretty much for the entire entire linked to that study which was eight months and you know some people will say well. That's only one hundred. Eighty eight people well. New england journal medicine december late december published this. This was From university. Oxford university hospitals in the united kingdom is titled antibody status and incidents of sars kobe to infection in healthcare workers. So it looked over. Twelve thousand healthcare workers and would it find said the presence of anti spike antibodies was associated with a substantially reduce risk of. Pcr confirmed stars cova to infection over thirty one weeks of follow up no symptomatic infections and only two pcr positive results in as symptomatic. Healthcare workers were seen in those with anti spike. Antibodies suggest at previous infection resulting. Antibodies to start cova to is associated with protection from reinfection for most people for at least six months and again. That's that's the duration of the study. So this is really interesting. But now let's compare that data what we know about the vaccine So the corporate media is even discussing this now. This is something. That's that's been forced into to the discussion. So bloomberg is reporting on this and their title. Looks like this. How a cova nine covid nineteen vaccine could end up helping the virus spread it may be possible infect others even after getting the shot now it goes on to say a vaccine that protects against symptoms of covid nineteen could contribute to the spread of the disease if and this is still justin if the people who get vaccinated remain capable of carrying the and transmitting the disease goes on to say. We don't know for sure if you immunize people are capable of showing infectious virus. It also says it's also not yet clear how much protection the pfizer biotech vaccine and others would provide holy cow disaster jeffrey. Just last week we were talking about. How the effectiveness of this vaccine. When was looked at by the editor of the british medical journal. Peter doshi and he said that look there were thousands of cases of infection in the vaccinated group that they didn't even test in the middle of the trial so they obviously try to hide or baked. The data even had ninety five percent effect efficacy against symptoms. I wanna keep reminding people. Because everywhere i go wells ninety five per cent effective for somebody. It's not effective at stopping the illness. It's not effective at stopping transmission. It's only supposed to be effective at stopping symptoms but as we point out last week if you take the thousands of people that got infected after having the vaccine in the trial and put them in there you realize that there's almost no difference with something like nineteen percent maybe better which is far below the fifty percent that was being requested so i just think this thing is such a turkey. We've been saying it all along that this will you know. I just from the very beginning to the vaccine unicorn might turn into something much uglier and slowly but surely there is what they started with and this seems to be what they're ending with. Oh that's even getting worse so you know. How long can they keep up this game. That's the question. How long can they keep playing this game. When people that have had the illness now the only ones that can really walk freely around in society should be the. If we're going to start really asking where people are at. Have you had illnesses the only way to know that you're actually save. If you like that clip that'd be sure to check out our live broadcasts. Highwire every thursday morning at eleven.

CUOMOS FINAL FLIP-FLOP
"We've covered andrew cuomo quite a bit the governor of new york. But we're seeing a very different andrew cuomo as of late and he went to a press briefing and it sounded like this. Take a look. Alright we simply cannot stay closed until the vaccine hits critical mass. The cost is too high. We will have nothing left to open. We must reopen the economy. But we must do it. Smartly and safely boy does that sound familiar. That sounds like perhaps we cannot have the cure. Be worse than the disease. We've got to open tapley. isn't that what. The great barrington declaration has been saying from the beginning that we cannot hide from this virus. We needed to protect those. That are high risk and let the rest of the people get back to work but we destroy the nation that we live in one of the greatest or i think the greatest nation one of the greatest economies the world has ever seen. Sounds like cuomo is really having a change of heart but my question. Jeopardy's where's this coming from. Is this because there you know has has the infection rate gone down. Do they think they've won this thing in new york. What's getting giving him confidence to make this statement. Yeah well you know it's anybody's guess. But let's take a look at some of the graphs coming out of new york and the daily new cases so this is one of the graphs that caused a lot of alarm and some of the information that caused the lockdowns. And you can see. The cases are spiking but the mortality rate is is way down from the initial in When when this thing was spreading so it certainly you know by andrew cuomo standards. This would be a lockdown imperative with these cases spiking like this but there there may be another reason People have been new york. The economy there has not been doing too well. Because i've been getting out of there just to get rid of the lockdowns or just just plain tired of of cuomo so this is a fast company that says stay in texas fleeing new york. Here's how and where people are moving to during covid nineteen and a real quick. This they did as does studies just came out. They looked from january to december fifteenth. So basically all of last year and they found that about twenty five percent of the people of all people moving in new york. We're leaving so only seventy five percent were staying in the state so you're telling me they have had it. One eighty five percent reduction in population in new york over this last year. Yeah most people stay when they moved eighty five percent of people moving into the same state so they just move someplace different realized that he won awards for the great work. He did remember the emmy award. I mean an emmy award. I think for. What was it best. Powerpoint there's paloma wins emmy for has covid nineteen briefings says he shares with new yorkers and journalists. I guess they didn't care that they'd one award about the great report. And what wind shocking. About when we've been watching andrew cuomo. Of course he had this massive death rate in nursing homes so many people died and they argue new york certainly at the top of the of the pandemic had the highest death rate or one of the highest death rates in the entire world. So how he's ever wanted any wars in shocking. But certainly if you've lost one quarter of your population. I would guess at a certain point. You don't wanna go down as you know. The the the guy that destroyed the leading economy maybe in the world new york city. I mean that drives all of our banking. Can you imagine just you know. It'd be rubble and saying that sorry about that. It's got to be stressful. Perhaps he's reading the new york post he's waiting for the vaccine says we can't wait for the vaccine to kick in Because of noah comu- lots and won't be left so new york post reports Moderna boss the moderna vaccine says covid nineteen vaccine not proven to stop spread of the virus. So maybe he's getting wind sting may not be always cracked up to tell sachs. He's the chief medical officer and then just recently modera. Ceo stefan. i'm bansal. He says that we'll have to live with covid forever. This was at a teleconference. He said we're going to have to live with forever. We think and it's not going away so perhaps almost seeing the going. Wait a minute. What are we waiting for. Why why we waited this vaccine and get out there. Let's open up. This economy told you that i don't really feel very good about but this one kind of feels good. You know andrew. If you've just been watching the high wire for the last eight or nine months we had to jump on this. We told you you're not going to be able to hide from this virus and no matter what you do. Obviously it's still spiking in new york. So you're draconian measures. Don't work in that vaccine unicorn you've been waiting for obviously isn't going to arrive to save you. I wonder i wonder if he's you know he's getting angry. I think the big question to jeffrey is. Is this a signal to the biden administration. That may be coming in. Is the signal to the democratic party that look. we're not going to survive this. We cannot destroy our economies. This isn't gonna work or you know. I guess the other question was always the plan right was always the plan to just you know use this as an election device and then as soon as we take over the white house and the congress and the senate why don't we go ahead and do what. Donald trump actually was saying the whole time. Which is we've got to open. He kept saying you know. The cure can't be worse than the disease. There's ways to open. He was listening to the scientist from great barrington declaration. I wonder if maybe this means. We won't lockdown. Once the biden administration comes in all of these are the questions that this brings up or is there some infighting going on now inside the party but clearly waiting for vaccine stupid because it doesn't stop in action and waiting till all of your jobs or destroyed too stupid. 'cause you're never gonna get reelected so many interesting developments happening as we speak right now mazing. If you liked that clip it'd be sure to check out our live broadcast of the high wire every thursday morning at eleven. Am pacific time. You can watch it on. I tunes end twitter we'll see.
WHAT DO YOU DO IF YOURE INJURED BY THE COVID SHOT
"Let's look into some of the headlines in tweets that we just started seeing last week. It's looking really bad folks here. We go unexpected string of allergic reaction causes delays at baxter nation superstation near petco park mexican. Dr hospitalized after receiving cope in nineteen vaccine. The doctor's name has not been released was admitted to the intensive care unit of public hospital in the northern state of nueva leone after she experienced seizures difficulty breathing in a skin. Rash the initial diagnosis and cephlon. That has something to do with swelling. Like we're talking about the neurology in your body. Young man develops rare life threatening syndrome after covid nineteen vaccine professor drawer. Meverachs director of the coronavirus department of haddassah tweeted on the matter. Writing rare life-threatening multi system and lamma tori syndrome following the vaccine back nation twenty-three-year-old. Social work was identified at our department. And look at the. What we've been describing to you right is is what we've been calling a cytokine storm that we were seeing in the trials of these vaccines in animals for the last twenty years. Isn't that with me. Described right there. Rare life-threatening total multi-system meltdown. Inflammatory syndrome horrifying never told channel twelve. We found out the young man and contracted the corona virus as dramatically before he was vaccinated. It may be accidental. But i would. Not underestimate at care. Must be taken in vaccination people who were sick with corona virus in the past and of course as you know. We're they're telling us. Don't worry if you've already had it back if you have had. It doesn't matter that now. All the studies are showing that you have long term immunity longer than could deliver the vaccine. Get them vaccine. Anyway we have a couple more headlines here seventy five year old. Israeli man dies two hours after getting kobe. nineteen vaccine. i wonder bit went to his brain eighty eight year old collapses and died several hours after being backs donated seventy five dollars really women bound lifeless hours after second dose of covid nineteen vaccine and of course here we are seeing right that exact at risk group that they are delivering vaccine to that by just decided not to actually put in their trials. You see this. The problem of trials should have only really been on sixty five and older with other kobetski's since those are the only people that need is vaccine. I think there was one more headline there. Five more swiss nursing home resident reportedly dies after getting covid. Nineteen vaccine new york post norway probes deaths of to nursing home residents. Who got us. kobe vaccine. Hambledon ps wc allergic reaction to covid nineteen vaccine lead to fainting seizures. Cpr cbc. I mean that's as big as it gets in canada new york times. Doctors death after kobe vaccine is being investigated. Dr jerry l. Spit back an expert on blood disorders at john hopkins university was not involved in dr michaels care. So that based on miss neck laments description. I think is medical certainty that the vaccine was related. This is going to be very rare hopefully But it could happen again. This is what we are seeing the headline spokesman. I told you this would be one of the really strange in dark. Benefits to the warp speed roll out of this vaccine is as i keep saying. Now you cannot say that vaccines do not cause death and injury. It is a known fact being reported in headlines all around the world but nothing is more powerful than video and of course. That's what made the film. I made us so powerball in the work. That polly tommy. My co-producer did with facts dot com. You can see all of the interviews with parents and real videos of people before and after vaccination but this week there were two videos that really struck me in a profound way so sad. But i think if they're sharing these videos that the high wire we want to be responsible to make sure that as many people Get the warning. They're trying to put out there. Take a look at This reaction to a vaccine happened week. Amazing and of course. The trolls attacked instead. She speaking that. Yeah she's been practicing having spasms inner tongue for the last two years just for this moment. There's really sick people online. That i guess just want to believe their belief is so deep they will attack anybody. That's obviously going through a very difficult situation. She posted on facebook. This is the post that was up. Facebook took it down. It appears that now. It's back up. Can you imagine cutting this video censoring this. She's trying to talk to us and give us a message. Take a look at this. My name is shawn skelton. And i'm very real and unfortunately this is also very real. I
APPROACHING HERD STUPIDITY
"Good morning good afternoon. Good evening wherever you are out there in this beautiful world. Welcome to the high wire. Well it's been an outrageous. We're all starting to recognize that we're almost there folks. We've almost reached complete. Heard stupidity and what i mean is a total destruction of the world as we know it based on the fact that we are no longer free to speak here in the united states of america. Of course our first amendment rights are under siege. That's okay though. I mean i want. I'm going to talk about that for just a second. But if you think about it the demise of the fall of every empire happens right about the point where they try to start trying to shut everybody up when they shut down the news when they shut down the reporters when they shut down the people when they start burning books. That's about the time you can recognize that. They are in their dying days. So the truth is alive and well but as you all know you know. Many of us have been kicked off of twitter and kicked up facebook and youtube and so There was a huge migration taking place to what was a new platform. Just recently parlor. Well then all a sudden when everybody was gathering on parlor just last week parlor was d platform which was crazy because we all thought parlor was platform which actually brought down by amazon and apple. They said you won't be able to have your apps in our app stores. And then essentially as i understand it. Their facebook their own websites came down. I'm sure they're looking to rebuild this and get back into the game but it's pretty scary. What do you think about it. I mean what are we talking about. How is it that there's only one voiced is going to be allowed. I mean this really does smack of those dystopia novels that had ideas like the ministry of truth. I mean when we think about twitter or facebook these were supposed to be interactive software like a way for us to speak to each other across the world without having to pay for a phone call. Are we just this close to our phone calls me. Listen to someone entering in and saying. I'm sorry that is not that's against the at and t.'s community guidelines. You're going to have to stop speaking to each other now. One of the issues. That i wanna bring up a lot of the discussions about the fact that it's political. Speak that it's really about conservative versus a republican views but i mean versus liberal views but really Our show the high wire. We're not political. I've never chosen the candidate. I don't get involved in that. We talk about you know the issue of medical freedom in how different candidates for handling it but like everything else on the high wire. I'm going to leave you to your own conclusions and to make your own decisions so that we stay in line with are not rob the informed consent action network you consent to your own ideas but when we look at all of this censorship. it hasn't just been political. We've seen doctors like you know josh. Actually you know that. We lost our channel. But josh acts went down we know the film plan that was simply about this. Pandemic got taken down and much of the started for us two years ago back. We're kind of used to this. Two years ago. It was adam. Schiff that wrote amazon said any any any information recites that are questioning the safety. Vaccines should be brought down. This is what happened. Amazon kicked my backed off of our amazon prime member deal which meant that everyone was supposed to be able to see that movie for free till the end of time and then eventually we lost our youtube and facebook and that may be why this week we are. I guess in some ways better setup than most in that our websites been for. We've got this brilliant player. I think you've been getting used to it working better and better. We're really excited about that. All of that made possible of course by your sponsorship but we got pounded this week while parlor was shutting down we were reaching nearly half a million hits to our website per day. So you know we're here. We're excited that. Everyone is getting used to so that old school approach. Which is it doesn't just show up on your computer naturally because some algorithms allowing you to just eat popcorn and stare blindly into space. You actually ty type. Www dot the high wire dot com. No one thought you wouldn't do it but you figuring it out anyway you know. I'm kidding we have a very intelligent audience. But i do want to take this moment to really let you all know. We have got to actively. Stand up against this and the way that we have to do that. Is i want you to think about the places where you do. Go for your information. Whether the high wire other blogs or podcasts that are out there you really need to make a concerted effort today to sign up to their newsletters and especially since. You're here watching us right now. Sign up to our newsletter because think about it if parlor can lose its website. So could we at some point. We'll always figure out a way to do it. But go to the high wire dot com and simply put in your email is going to completely protected server where we keep all that information but imagine there may be a moment maybe it's a short blackout time or maybe it's long long-term where we will only be able to email. You are breaking news or our show. I hope that that never happens. But please give us the opportunity and show these people. They're never going to get away with it. That we are actually going to take the extra step to engage ourselves with each other. We're going to sign up to the new newsletters that we care about so that all of those that are doing great work really doing these investigations and all the different areas of course. We're very focused on medical freedom. But maybe it's banking or maybe the military industrial complex. Whatever you're focused on who. Wherever you're getting your information please make that extra effort today and get on the newsletters so that no one can ever stop us so they cannot quite so they can't shut us down. That is how the people will take us through this last desperate effort for the small minds attempting to take over the world We're going to thwart them in that. Let's do that together. And just so you know we keep picking up more platforms. Let's bring up this right now. I just want to show you that the high wire those are all the places. Now that you see us. I just signed up with gab. I have some real hope that gab site that's coming up and 'course they tried to launch about a year ago but got stopped by the fbi but one of the easiest ways to always find. We're at go to link tree forward slash the highway remember. There's a dot right after the tr but link tree forward slash
NEUROSCIENTISTS CONCERNS ABOUT COVID VACCINES
"You know one of the things that i do. Is i check in with scientists that we've talked to someone from behind the scenes others decided to come forward at different times but with questions. What would the questions be when it comes to the corona virus vaccine. There are obvious questions that they're already admitting that they haven't answered things. Like what a vaccine does which is stop transmission. They don't know if it does. I don't even know how this thing could be called a vaccination until it proves it can stop the infection and stop transmission but science doesn't seem to be working the way it used to where we were asked hard questions were. We challenged the theory where you know and you know actually but checked in with i don't know maybe heart doctors and neuro scientists to figure out what they thought. Well we've done a lot of reporting on the immune system and the potential for auto immune issues when it comes to the kobe. Nineteen vaccine we've discussed fertility with scientists and doctors. That can discuss that issue. But i was talking to a neuroscientist that has done some work in this field. That brought us a lot of the studies on the dangers of aluminum in vaccines. Of course i'm talking about the world. Renowned scientists from the university of british columbia dr christopher shaw and it is my honor and pleasure to have him joining us right now on the high wire trysts. You brought up something. I sort of just stopped you the other day. I said you know what. I want you to bring that live on the high wire from a perspective of neuroscience. There's lots of concerns that causing the cell to create a spike protein in the body. And hoping that the immune system somehow creates antibodies fight. That could start some cycle that could lead to long-term autoimmune illness now. Of course there's excuses but not a lot of science has been done but you'll have a particular concern when it comes to the brain. What does that concern while. A concern is is actually several. Fold one actually. I looked at the pfizer. And the moderna phase three of safety studies and there were. There are things that were that. Were disturbing that one of the one of the biggest ones that i noticed was the palsy. And then i went back through the animal literature where Some moderna scientists had had actually looked at where the construct the nra are. Lipid coated polyethylene glycol construct have gone and they were finding it in all kinds kinds of parts of the body and the the official story. Is that once you inject it in your muscle. It stays there. It gets into your cells. The lipid helps you out and then it attaches to the resumption that turns out turns out this protein that your immune system will recognize them and all is good to go. The problem is in their own study. This is done in two thousand twelve authors. Got him capital there. You go capital and what you see when you go to their table to is it. Looks like the construct and this was done with a different virus so but it was the test of the mr on a vaccine in general and with the pfizer and the the stuff that came out with humans. They're getting pretty good immunity response. Initially it looks like yet but they're also finding the construct in the brain and other places so that tells us something that it's not breaking down as fast as you remember. The whole basis of the cold chain storage is that this is a very labor molecule that will not survive and and somehow surviving to get in inside various organs including the brain. And that table tells you that this is this may be something we need to worry about when we need to study in more detail not just not just launch in the population of seven billion people. Because i think you're you're inevitably going to have some consequences that we don't understand. So why are there. I mean there's not much compared to how much as in the muscle there shouldn't be any. So why i want to bring up that really quickly because obviously this looks like these animal models correct and so they're able to kill the models. After delivery of the technology right the technology folks look at all the places they found it. It's like it. It blew up inside the animal. We're talking bone marrow brain Lymph nodes heart kidneys liver lungs. I mean i guess if your goal was to travel all throughout the body then mission accomplished. But what i i guess my question is is. I've even seen doctors putting out videos that any concern that this crosses the blood brain barrier are not true. It's been proven that that's not true and for a lay person like myself. I ask myself. Why are you even telling me that. I mean first of all what would be a problem if it does cross the blood brain barrier. Why why are they defending against that. So let me ask you that. What could be the possible problems. Should this technology make it into your brain. Well my first reaction would be that. It could trigger some autoimmune reactions inside the brain influ inflammation because when we when you release either the protein in this case it may maybe the the mri itself because it's inside the brain. You're going to trigger microaggressions. The resident of cells do something about it. And what are they going to do. They're going to try and deal with the cells that are releasing it and or where wherever it is. Maybe they'll just engulfing it'll be harmless but the you know the onus is on the company to actually show us that it's not harmless and they started to do that back in in two thousand and twelve with my study but i would think that a lot more a lot more rigorous science needs to be done about this before you giant experiment with some people and you don't wanna be coming back two years later three years later and say oh my goodness worded all this auto immunity come from and i think i think it's a concern and i think it. It really is incumbent upon the companies and h. Cdc and all those entities that monitor the safety loose things actually the commission. Some studies say go because clearly based on maderas own data it goes it goes into compartments of your body including great again not much but how much as much as a safe we don't know and you know they. They never followed in overtime. The animals were sacrificed or after a few days after injection. So how much goes there eventually. Why they're going there all. I mean any sense based on what they're telling us about how. How easily degraded this molecule as so it shouldn't be there in. Is there according to their own data. Maybe they're wrong. Maybe they didn't do do it right but again that that calls for more studies. Not you're absolutely and so. When you say autoimmune disease you know leading the autoimmune disease in the brain. I always think of autoimmune disease sort of in the body and what. You're saying that the the the the glee cells up there that sort of handle immunity in the brain. When you say it could lead information and you're talking about is the potential for brain swelling. Is that is that something that could happen. I i don't know I'm not gonna moly going on this. This study couple others that show somewhat the same thing. But you know when you when you turn your micro galil loose against targets inside the brain.
THE TOLL OF HERD STUPIDITY
"When we look at the uk there's been tons. We've been showing you all the marches that are going on and these cops walking in and and striking people you know with batons and arresting people. But what i think. There's some really shocking videos and one of them really was. There was an activist that just decided take a camera inside of a hostile. Take a look at this harry. I'm outside gloucestershire. Royal hospital just to show you. How data is ghost. Ghost town never seen it so quiet whereas the second wave whereas all the people dying from the second life. hey where are they. Show this folks. This is proof we've just been locked down in gloucestershire and near three that this for an empty hospital. Look look at it. This is a disgrace. i've never seen. Oh my god look at this so dad all the people in our country just shortly waiting for treatment cancer treatment heart disease. Look at this. Honestly this is me angry walking around here. This is making me angry. You know there's been a lot of factors that have looked at that video in the uk. They're trying to say well. She wasn't in the er or one of the hospitals where they're really focusing on cove in lots of different excuses. Like i said you know lots of excuses going on. But i don't really want to focus on that. We've had videos like that here. But what i want to focus on was the reaction to that video is it mean all she did. She walked through a hospital and shot her camera. Look at what happens to like a couple of days later were s enclosed on used this looking so luckily you cannot see what could you look look dead included on june so you can get dressed from. Wow big time bus. There really got a hardened criminal on your hands. I mean she's just asking. Kelly put on some clothes obviously. They came through her front door. Meet it up outside of her bedroom. Headlines did say debra hicks was arrested at that. Moment british activists. Debbie hicks arrested after filming inside empty. Hospital this is a disgrace. I do think it's a disgrace. Antilock don activists arrested in her dressing gown after filming anti hospital ward. I don't understand what law she broke. Don't understand but i don't live in the uk. I guess you're not allowed to go through and shoot video of the obvious or make any opinion and this again. This is censorship right. This is what we're dealing with here in america but if you can't shoot in an empty hospital what about allowed to drink a cup of coffee outdoors. No apparently not take a look at
Developing Your Herbal Competence and Confidence
"Hey there everybody. Sage popham here founder of the school of evolutionary herbalism. And today i want to talk about some critical turning points that all of us face as when we're walking the plant path and this is the subject of developing your competence as well as your confidence as an herbalist. If there's one thing that i've realized over the last over ten years of being an herbalist myself as well as interacting with a lot of beginner intermediate and advanced herbalist all across the world is that we all come against these roadblocks in our plant path. Things that are holding us back from reaching that next level in our practice of herbal medicine. And what i've come to realize that really ultimately distills down to these two things of confidence and competence. And i believe this is critically important for all of us to consider and to think about on our plant path. Because let's face it people need you right. There's someone out there in the world that needs help and you have the ability to provide them with the help that they need. Whether that's something really simple like treating cough or a basic urinary tract infection or someone's having a hard time sleeping at night to maybe more serious. Chronic conditions like irritable bowel syndrome or chronic food allergies. Or maybe someone needs support in their psychological and emotional health. Maybe someone's trying to break through to their next level of their own spiritual development and the whole premise of evolutionary. Herbalism is that we as herbalists have the ability to support people on all levels of their health and wellbeing. So you're needed right. And i think it's important for us to take a step back outside of our own lives and look at the bigger picture of the world right now which is in chaos right and i think it's becoming more and more apparent every day. How much healing is needed out there in the world. And i believe and i'm sure that you do to if you're here with me that the potency and power of medicinal plants have the ability to provide this deeper level of healing that people are seeking out there in the world or that they need and don't even realize that they need it so the point is is that you're needed and that brings us to what's holding you back right. What's holding you back from being out there and being of service to your family your friends. Your co workers your community or your clientele your patients if you're working in a clinical practice. There's a lot of scales to being an herbalist. But i think no matter what scale you're at whether just using herbs for yourself or your close relatives or whether you're working in a clinic it's like what's holding you back from reaching that next level in your work with medicinal plants and i think this ultimately comes back to breaking through those things that are preventing you from reaching that next level which i ultimately have distilled down to confidence and competent. So i wanna talk about this a little bit today. Because ultimately as herbalists we want to be of service we want to wear healers we wanna be of service to the world and we want to make this world a better place not just for ourselves not just for our future generations but for the earth itself for guy and the things that are holding us back ultimately those are kind of our own personal internal struggles that we deal with.
Supporting Your Body with the doTERRA Nutrition Line
"I'm happy to join with my first question for. You is a big one because this is a new product launch. So what is the doe. Tear nutrition line. Yeah the though turn. Nutrition line is is a collection of powder products it's foundational to our nutritional product offering and as you mentioned it's a new product offering that we're really excited about we've been working on for a while now and these are some core products that really serve as a foundation for people's overall health and wellness in this product mine. We've got a new fiber anew. Greens and three new protein. All right the first one. I want to talk about is the fiber what makes the dotan nutrients and fiber different. Yeah that's a great question because you see a lot of fiber products on the market but one of the things. We were very deliberate about doing with this. Fiber product is including both soluble and insoluble fibers. So they have different benefits. And you'll also recognize that the sources of these fibers are things that you'll recognize apple tapioca and flaxseed. These are where the fibers coming from which is great so we are also including lemon essential. Oil in the fiber blend. And when we've combined the lemon oil with the apple flavor from the apple fiber it really makes that flavor pop and so it tastes amazing and then one of the other key differentiator 's or this fiber is the season of the prebiotic blend. Prebiotics are food for your microbiome and the microbiome in your gut plays a really critical role in maintaining your overall help so that was something that we really wanted to support in this fiber product. That sounds amazing. Can you tell us a little bit about the research that went into creating this fiber supplement. Yeah we we took a lot of time reviewing How do we support digestive health. With dietary fibers people know that dietary fibers. When you consume these soluble and insoluble fibers. They go around not just disappointing. Your digestive health but some other areas beyond digestive health Like cardiovascular health also supporting metabolic health and then another benefit is the support of a more mindful eating lifestyle since fiber helps society so when we looked at the dietary fibres we know that. Dietary fibers are from vented in the gut. Never broken down into these bioactive metabolites. So you think of short chain fatty acids like propia nayed acetate and peter eight and they each have their own benefits but then we spent some time. Researching the benefits of this prebiotic blend. That we've added to. The fibers were focused on supporting the microbiome. There and the human microbiome is actually composed of slightly more microbes than the cell count of the entire. Human body is really amazing to think of that but these microbes in the microbiome. They're able to digest these prebiotics. So we've included a legal sack rights as prebiotics zaylon league sack ride. Fructose leo sack ride and is amalia sack ride. And then we've also included england from jerusalem artichoke and chicory root again these these microbes of the microbiome. They're involved in stimulating the immune system in synthesizing vitamins stimulating gluconeogenesis and helping with appetite controls. We wanted to provide a wide variety of prebiotics to support a broad spectrum of microbes types. In your microbiome wanna point out when people think of the microbiome may be familiar with this term. Called the second brain with a mike obama's sometimes referred to as a second brain and you have the gut brain axis where the microbiome through research has been demonstrated to stimulate the brain in three separate ways. So there's the production of serotonin in the gut which will directly stimulate the vegas nerve. And then you have indirect stimulation of immune cells which stimulate the brain so think of like cytokines. And then there's also metabolites that will travel from the gut to the brain through blood vessels and things like that too or or they may stimulate the vagus nerve. So those are things like the beauty rates that are produced. So it's really fascinating area of new research all around the microbiome and and the reason that included the prebiotic blend in their while just the sheer amount of research that goes into these products is so incredible. Okay so that's the fiber next. I wanna talk about the greens. Why are the tarrant nutrition. Greens so important you think of greens. I think of back to the days when i was a kid. You know everybody knows the importance of eating your fruits and vegetables right. We we hear about it as kids. We know about as adults and and it's incorporated into food pyramids and things like that plants provide
WE ARE THE 99%
"People are waking up folks. We're waking up. i get it. These are hard conversations that we're having but we've got to be able to have them. We have to ask these questions. We can't just close our eyes. You know knows you know. The monkey see monkey do whatever it is. We've got to be able to step up and represent and we've got to be able to stand in a drugstore and say i'm sorry. I looked at the science. It is not there. I am not going to be stuck in slaved by masks for the rest of my life because six or seven people in multiple trials or studies that looked at them or papers seem to have maybe shared the six other people eastern dramatic spread. That is not it that is not the science that does not determine my existence on this planet and total reversal of how we've lived here since the dawn of man so we're not alone folks. You are not crazy. You hear the high wire if you're still watching it's because you still care and all around the world we are dressing this issue. People are stepping up. A lot of us are saying. I am done and this is one of my favorite videos and my favorite way to express. I'm done. this is straight out of australia. Take a look at this.
The Infodemic with Dr. Seema Yasmin
"Daily covid. Nineteen deaths broke four thousand. Several days last week is projections show that we could reach over. Four hundred thousand covid nineteen deaths by the end of this month. A far right mob invaded the us capital in an attempted coup fomented by donald trump which forced many lawmakers many without masks the shelter in place for hours raising fears of a potential superspreader event among the us congress and rather than hold onto fifty percent of all available vaccine doses for second doses as operation warp speed currently does president-elect. Joe biden announced plans to release all of the available vaccine doses to ramp up. I does vaccinations when he takes office. This is america dissected. i'm your host. Dr abdul el-sayed twenty twenty. One is already the longest in american history. This is a podcast about covid. Nineteen but it's also a podcast about public health and as i've tried to communicate throughout the series it's impossible to have competent public health without competent government. So much of what. We take for granted about or at least used to take for granted about our country is rooted in the sheer functionality of government that streetlights work roads. You drive on are paved that water. You drink and brush your teeth with is clean. The air you breathe is pure and unpoisoned that the public school down the street starts on time and keep your kids safe while she's there. Here's the honest truth if you've always taken these things for granted it's a function of your privilege in too many communities. These things can't be taken for granted at all. And when they can't he usually shows up and health so many of the health disparities that shape lives and low income. Disproportionately black communities are low income. Rural communities can be explained by the lack of access to these basic things. But even for those of us who can take things clean air and water functional roads and safe public schools for granted. They aren't a foregone conclusion. They exist because of a political system that hold our public servants accountable to us to provide these things. In that system we choose our leadership through a very circumscribed set of laws and policies that specify when where and how we do it and all of implies that our elected leaders will respect those laws and policies and that they'll relinquish power if and when they're no longer duly elected by the people that peaceful transition of power it sits at the heart of our democratic society. It is the core of that functional government. The privileged among us can take for granted and for the first time in modern american history. A democratically elected president of the united states attempted to overthrow that system. He attempted to leverage the power that we the people through a democratic election gave him to thwart our choices at the next election one. The darkest days in american has failed insurrection. they've not only marked. But they're inside and they're endangering. A lot of people was a sea of lawlessness incited by the president. There has been here guests in the rotunda rabin instructed to each of us. Get gas masks. That are under our seats. Here's the thing he didn't do. Directly using arms in the state itself against itself can call the military to stop the certification process. Instead he used the norms of a free and open society against itself. I he undermined every other public authority. Other than himself it began with the media are the fake fake news. Then it moved to expertise of any sort. I know more about isis than the generals do believe me that it moved to science itself. It'll start getting cooler. I was just you just watch. I wish science agreed with you. Think science knows. Actually when he had undermined every source of objective information he forced his supporters to choose between them and him and too many chose him. The greatest president of our lifetime. And i will die standing in my loot as a patriot for this country. Then he started to set the table. You called the election process fraudulent even before it started made allegations that voting by mail was inherently fraudulent made allegations that undocumented people would vote the election he made up lies that politicians would work against him and then when he lost the election. He kept lying about that too. This is a major fraud or nation if you county illegal votes easily win frankly we did win this election. What happened on january. Sixth didn't start on january. Sixth it started the day he began to undermine objective truth to make room for his life. He gained one of the best things about our society. The freedom of speech to undo those very freedoms for his political game. This is how disinformation works. Why am i talking about this in a podcast about covid. Nineteen because the very same disinformation that created this. Attempted coup is the disinformation that is excused federal response to the pandemic from the very beginning. It's the disinformation that has led us on a path to four hundred thousand desktop ovid nineteen in our country by the end of this month and beyond this particular pandemic. It's the disinformation that strikes at the heart of public health when you undermine government and you undermine science there simply cannot be a functional public health system. People die because of it. Disinformation is deadly today. We'll talk with dr see osman. she's a physician former. Cdc epidemic intelligence officer and author of the new book viral bs medical myths and. Why we fall for them. We'll talk more about miss and disinformation and health after the break.
