The Health & Wellness Show: Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture & Somatic Therapy

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

Linnea 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. Linnea 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.

Linnea 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?

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.

The Health & Wellness Show: Got Triskaidekaphobia?

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

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.

Join us live from 6-8pm CET (4-6pm UTC / 12-2pm EST) on the SOTT Radio Network.

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!

Behind the Headlines: Kurdistan and Catalonia: The Politics of Self-Determination

This week Iraqi Kurdistan voted for its independence from the state of Iraq. So far, Israel is the only country to have expressed support for their cause. Iraq called the referendum illegal and unconstitutional. Iran and Turkey are in agreement, conducting joint military drills, and implementing measures against the Kurds to thwart their attempt to form an independent nation state. Even the U.S. won't recognize the move (officially, at least). But as Erdogan put it this weekend, "What are they thinking?"

Meanwhile, today Catalonia plans to go ahead with its own independence referendum, despite strong statements and actions from Spanish authorities, including legal, police, and cyber measures taken to discourage or stop the vote.

Today on Behind the Headlines we'll be discussing these independence movements. When is it okay to secede? When is it not?

The Health & Wellness Show: Connecting the Dots...Iron, Brown Fat, Depression and tattoos

As summer comes to an end and we enter the fall season we connect the dots in health news. We will discuss Iron - what is iron overload? Can high levels of iron contribute to disease? Also we will look at brown and white fat, what's the difference? Is one better than the other when it comes to wellness and disease prevention? New research has come to light about chronic inflammation fanning the flames of depression, can our diet really effect our mental state? And finally 'think before you ink', are there hidden health risks when it comes to tattoos?

Zoya joins us with another interesting pet health segment: 'Happiness and suffering. How to deal with daily struggles. And why we should choose our suffering and be happy about it.'

Behind the Headlines: W‌hat Ever Happened to the New World Order?

© Thomas Barnett
The New World Order. Is it here? Is it on the way? What does the New World Order really mean? Leaving aside the conspiracy theory definition where a secret elite has been planning to replace nations states and install a 'one world government', a few notable 20th century politicians used the term (most of them from Western nations) to describe a new period of history characterized by a dramatic change in world political thought and the balance of power after the 20th century's 2 world wars.

That 'new balance of power' when referred to by Woodrow Wilson, Churchill and George HW Bush, was decidedly weighted towards the USA and its allies. Bush used the term along with Gorbachev to describe a post Cold War era and a spirit of co-operation between the 'Great Powers'. But in 1990, when Bush and Gorbachev made their speech, Russia was no longer a 'great power', and Bush felt comfortable qualifying the idea of 'co-operation' by saying "there is no substitute for American leadership". The post WW2 and post Cold War New World Order was in reality a euphemism for the 'New American Century' where America would reign supreme and unchallenged.

As we sit here in the year 2017 and look at the world around us, we see that America's vision for a NWO and New American Century is in shambles, with the architects of the American Empire reduced to setting fire (literally and figuratively) to countries in a futile attempt to stave off the moment of its complete collapse.

This week on BTH we'll be taking a look at the real new world order that is taking shape and how it radically diverges from the supposedly well laid plans of the Western political elite. We'll also be gazing into our crystal balls to predict what moves on the grand chessboard can be expected as the anglo-American empire builders grow increasingly desperate.

The Health & Wellness Show: Idiocracy: Are We There Yet?

In 2006, the movie Idiocracy was released. It depicted a dystopian society where advertising, commercialism, and cultural anti-intellectualism run rampant. Humans are devoid of intellectual curiosity, social responsibility, and coherent notions of justice and human rights. Humans are so dumbed down they communicate in slang, grunts and icons. Corporations control every aspect of life, the earth is covered in trash, the crops are dead and entertainment is juvenile and absurd.

Over the years the movie has been called a 'documentary' because it essentially depicts, in a humorous manner, the sign of the times. Join us as we discuss the similarities between this cult film and our world today. Are we living in an era of rampant stupidity? Is there any hope? Is there a field guide when it comes to dealing with stupid people? How do we identify and avoid - as much as possible - the often irreparable harm such people can inflict?

Behind the Headlines: Trump Trumped, and the Myanmar Conflict in Context

Promises, promises. Trump is finally receiving decent coverage in the mainstream media, which is bad news because it likely means he has truly caved to the US 'deep state'. As 'bipartisanship' returns to Washington, it's all-systems-go for US foreign policy (which never really skipped a beat). Should we have expected any different outcome?

The 'Islamic State' between Syria and Iraq has all but ceased to exist, but the Endless War on of Terror continues to spread, recently taking new form in Myanmar. Uniformly presented as the 'plight of the poor Rohingya people' versus their 'evil Burmese oppressors', this week on Behind the Headlines we'll show how this latest conflict zone fits into the Endless War on Terror and the Bottomless Pit of US Hegemony.

Join us from 6-8pm CET (4-6pm UTC / 12-2pm EST) for critical context the MSM leaves out of its story-telling.
