The Health & Wellness Show: Syphilitic Superpower: The rise of STDs

Gonorrhoea
Sexually transmitted diseases are skyrocketing all over the globe. Public health departments report staggering increases in cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis with more than 2 million cases recorded in 2016. Gonorrhea is reaching antibiotic-resistant superbug status, chlamydia is evolving into new strains and oral HPV cases among men have surpassed cases of HPV caused cervical cancer.

On this episode of The Health and Wellness Show we'll take a look at the precipitous rise in STDs and its correlation to pornography, dating apps, the hookup culture and the general moral degradation of society. Is the spread of STDs just a symptom of the collapse of civilization?

And stay tuned at the end of the show where Zoya's Pet Health Segment will lighten the mood with interesting facts about octopuses.

Behind the Headlines: U.S. Republic Goes Bananas: Rats Fleeing the Sinking Ship as U.S. Democracy Unravels

USA banana republic
Hillary Clinton has been officially outed as having rigged the Democratic primary so that she would win. She was therefore ineligible as a presidential candidate, yet the deep state media continues to cover this up and insists on focusing on the "Russia collusion" non-story. The situation is so farcical that it's fair to say that today American politics bears more similarity to that of a banana republic than the 'world's greatest democracy'.

Their attacks on RT and Sputnik are absurd; the accusations pale in comparison to what U.S. propaganda networks like RFE/RL are on record as doing. Their witch-hunt on social media ads from "Russia-connected accounts" is utterly paranoid. Day after day, the emptiness continues to be poured into the void while the Russiagate narrative tears itself apart at the seams.

The US political system looks like THE most corrupt and undemocratic political systems in the world. It's worse even than dictatorships. At least with a dictator no one is being fooled. In the USA, the totalitarian 'elite' have been fooling Americans for decades.

Tune in to Behind the Headlines at 6-8pm CET (4-6pm UTC / 12-2pm EST), as we discuss the latest in the Russiagate/Clintongate tragicomic farce, among other breaking news from this last week.

Behind the Headlines: Spain Split in Catalonia Referendum Aftermath, JFK File Release Flops

This month marks the 100th anniversary of the Russian October Revolution. Russia may be a vastly different place today, but there's no shortage of chaos in the world. The aftermath of the Catalan Independence Referendum is still reverberating. After Catalonian leaders refused to nullify the region's vote, Madrid took the nuclear option and activated Article 155 of the Spanish Constitution, dissolving the Catalonian parliament and assuming direct control in a move of questionable legality. For their part, Catalan leaders declared independence, calling for peaceful resistance to Madrid's attempts to deny the region's independence.

Over in the U.S., it has been 25 years since the U.S. government promised to release all their relevant JFK assassination files. The deadline came, and went. Trump could have simply allowed for what was promised; instead, he caved in to CIA and FBI pressure to delay the release for "national security reasons". While some documents were released, thousands were withheld pending redactions. Whether existing redactions in the publicly available files will ever be removed or previously withheld documents will ever see the light of day is up in the air. In six months, Trump has the power to delay them again, and so on, ad infinitum. The question is: what value are the documents, anyway?

For these topics and more, tune in to Behind the Headlines at 6-8pm CET (4-6pm UTC / 12-2pm EST), only on the SOTT Radio Network.

The Health & Wellness Show: Flu Season: Don't believe the hype

It's flu season folks, and the yearly hype and scare-mongering are upon us. How such a relatively benign and short-lived cluster of symptoms that nearly everyone on Earth experiences from time to time can generate such maniacal focus boggles the mind. It seems that every year there are warnings that this flu season will be the worst and we must prepare for a possible pandemic. The CDC's guesstimated statistic that 36 thousand people a year die from the flu is trotted out with almost clock-like regularity and quoted by esteemed health 'experts' nationwide in order to pressure people into obtaining their flu shot.

On this episode of The Health and Wellness Show we'll examine the flu, flu propaganda, flu shots, flu prevention, flu treatment and all other things flu-y. Join us!

And stay tuned for Zoya's Pet Health Segment where the topic will be upper respiratory infections in cats.

Behind the Headlines: Russiagate Unravels, Syria Stabilizes, Spain Almost Splits

Biểu tình ủng hộ độc lập tại Barcelona
Several major world events developed this week. While Putin and Xi both gave speeches outlining their takes on the present - and visions for a better future - fracture points in the rest of the world creaked and groaned. Protests continue in Spain as the government made moves to dissolve the Catalan parliament and hold its separatist leaders accountable. Kurdistan's own failed independence referendum was similarly squashed - the Iraqis took back Kirkuk almost without a shot fired, apparently with help from Iran. The Americans claim victory over ISIS in Raqqa while the Russians and Syria continue to clear the Deir Ezzor region of its jihadist occupiers. Israel continues to support Al-Qaeda in Syria - as if anyone could expect anything different from the world's worst terrorist regime.

Meanwhile the Russiagate non-scandal continues to unravel in the States, with increasingly hysterical stories quickly debunked, and no evidence presented for any of the major claims. Except when it comes to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. The Hill exposed the Democrats' own Russiagate this week. Already, more evidence of their "collusion with Russia" has been presented than for the entire last year's worth of anti-Trump innuendo. This comes on the heels of major Democrat fundraiser and Hollywood bigwig Harvey Weinstein being exposed as a serial sex abuser, the fallout of which has seen dozens of celebrities come forward with their own accounts of abuse in the industry.

Join us live from 6-8pm CET (4-6pm UTC / 12-2pm EST) on the SOTT Radio Network for a SOTT news round-up you won't hear anywhere else.

The Health & Wellness Show: Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture & Somatic Therapy: Interview With James and Linnéa Lovinsky

acupuncture
Today on the Health and Wellness Show, we interview Doctors of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine Linnéa Snyder (L.Ac. MSTCM) and James Lovinsky (L.Ac. MSTCM).

Linnéa currently practices in the state of Rhode Island. She was first drawn to acupuncture after receiving it as a teenager and noticing its widespread effects. Most notably, she loves the way it balances one's nervous-system and can clear emotional build-up without the necessity of attaching or sharing about the feelings or pain. Linnéa is interested in women's health, psycho-emotional disorders and stress induced illnesses. James came upon acupuncture during a very stressful period in his life. After trying several modalities to treat his own stress-induced health concerns, he settled on acupuncture. Upon changing his career and beginning acupuncture school he realized that Chinese medicine offered many treatments that could give patients an alternative to drugs and surgery. James is interested in pain management, digestive disorders and psycho-emotional health.

Linnéa and James met on their first day of acupuncture school. Both received their training in Boston at the New England School of Acupuncture and in San Francisco at the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine. In addition to acupuncture, their training includes herbal medicine, nutrition, and treatment modalities like cupping, moxabustion and massage. Recently they learned the M-Test somatic response technique developed by Dr. Yoshito Mukaino, MD.

Join us for a fascinating discussion about acupuncture, Chinese medicine and somatic therapy.

Behind the Headlines: Las Vegas Massacre: What Really Happened - Trump and Iran, What's his Problem?

M240L
This week on Behind the Headlines, we'll be taking another look at the Las Vegas Massacre on October 1st and analyzing the latest statements made by the Las Vega Police Department and the FBI about what really happened that night. Anyone with a few neurons still firing correctly and who has been watching the events unfold will already know that the official story is laughably inconsistent and unbelievable. Within the last few days, the authorities have changed their narrative a third time while the alleged 'hero' of the day- security guard Jesus Campos - has 'disappeared' with both him and his family allegedly under a 'gag order'.

As always, using common sense and critical thinking, while steering clear of the more outlandish and improbable claims, we'll do our best to paint as close a picture as possible of what really happened that night.

We'll also be taking a look at recent development in the Trump administration, in particular the increasing bellicosity aimed at Iran.

Join us from 12-1.30pm EST (6-7.30pm CET) for what will, as always, prove to be an enlightening discussion.

Are you superstitious? Plan to stay in tonight?
Triskaidekaphobia is the irrational fear of the number 13. Friggatriskaidekaphobia is fear of Friday the 13th, specifically. In honor of this momentous occasion, we at The Health and Wellness Show will be exploring superstitions and strange beliefs, including ghosts, fairies and other types of magical thinking, from all over the world. Superstitious beliefs have a long, yet cloudy, history. Why did they originate and what purpose do they serve? Are humans hardwired for such senseless behaviors or is it all just programming? Grab your lucky rabbit's foot, throw some salt over your shoulder and knock on wood as you tune in to this week's show!

And stay tuned at the end of the show for Zoya's Pet Health Segment where the topic will be food fermentation and preservation for pets.

Behind the Headlines: What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas

Mandalay Bay shooting
The biggest mass shooting in modern American history. One shooter, 59 dead, almost 500 injured. No warning signs. No discernible motive. The shooter, Stephen Paddock, is a cipher. As if that ambiguity wasn't enough, even the basic facts were quickly thrown into question and contradicted by numerous eyewitness accounts and footage. What the media has reported from the very beginning has been only a fraction of what happened. Multiple shooters, multiple events at multiple hotels. Now there is evidence that Paddock might not have been alone in his hotel room in the days before the shooting. You'd think this could all be clarified quickly using the hotel's surveillance footage. Apparently not.

Today on the Behind the Headlines we'll be analyzing what we know about the mass shooting at Mandalay Bay hotel and casino in Las Vegas - and what you're not hearing from local law enforcement, the Feds, and the mainstream media.

The Health & Wellness Show: Chemtrails, Flat Earthers, and Mental Disintegration: What's wrong with these people?

Increasingly persistent airplane condensation trails, which CorpGov does not want people to notice
Today on the health and wellness show we will discuss conspiracy theories that hijack the mind and lead to mass confusion and disinformation. There are plenty of conspiracy theories that compete for the greatest lack of credibility, rationality and substance. Chemtrails and Flat earth theories are two that come up regularly in the alternative media.

What happens when attention is drawn away from real problems? How is the public emotionally sidetracked - ignoring underlying problems that really need addressing? The question is what are people thinking or rather are they thinking at all?

Stay tuned for Zoya's Pet Health Segment, for a fascinating talk on Skinwalker Ranch:Mysterious animals and creatures, cattle mutilations, and much more!
