Dr Stephanie Seneff: How Glyphosate, The World’s Most Popular Herbicide, Is Destroying Our Health.
Dr Stephanie Seneff is a pioneer in the field of glyphosate and the adverse effects it has on our health. Dr Seneff has an eclectic background with a MIT Computer Science Master's degree and an undergrad in Biology. She has spent most of her career working in computer dialogue systems. In 2007/8, her concern for Autism and the environmental factors behind its alarming increase, which she describes as a Quiet Epidemic, saw her research move in a new direction and begin focusing on the gut. Agrochemical companies claim that glyphosate is safe for humans, animals, and the environment. But emerging scientific research on glyphosate’s deadly disruption of the gut microbiome, its crippling effect on protein synthesis, and its impact on the body’s ability to use and transport sulfur―not to mention several landmark legal cases― tells a very different story. Dr. Seneff lives in Kauai, Hawaii. Join us as we explore: Our exposure to GMO chemicals and their dangers Glyphosate – the most popular herbicide on the market Dramatic increase in Autism rates from 1950’s Why is this Quiet Epidemic going by so unnoticed when its ramifications are so catastrophic? The increase in unhealthy gut microbiomes & the associated complications so prevalent today The impact of the current vaccine schedule on our children The court cases and class action lawsuits against Monstanto and Beyer for the adverse health effects of glyphosate The rise in certified organic foods and farm to table, in response to poor food quality The key components of the global food industry affected by these chemicals The range of neurological diseases impacted by these adverse chemicals The correlation between global Covid-19 severity and glyphosate Glyphosate’s impact on air and water quality, including rain The importance of a Glycine supplement Eating organic, apple cider vinegar, fermented foods and sunlight exposure as proactive tools Impact on collagen, joint hypermobility, sulfur and glutathione deficiencies among other things Dr Seneff’s concerns on the current vaccine Join our community: Facebook MadeToThriveZA; SteveStavsZA Instagram SteveStavsZA Mentions Book: Dr Stephanie Seneff - Toxic Legacy: How the Weedkiller Glyphosate is Killing our Health and our Environment https://www.amazon.com/Toxic-Legacy-Weedkiller-Glyphosate-Environment/dp/1603589295 (Pre Orders) Contact Dr Stephanie Seneff Website: https://stephanieseneff.net Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/stephanie.seneff.5 Twitter: https://twitter.com/stephanieseneff LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/stephanie-seneff-9a04958/

Learning Health Lessons from 2020 with Dr Leland Stillman
Dr. Leland Stillman is a MD of Internal Medicine Specialist from Portland, Maine. He became interested in medicine at an early age, thanks to childhood ear infections, allergies, and ADHD. This sparked his interest in the immune system, which led him on a path to help people achieve their highest potential. He studied biochemistry and environmental health and went on to receive his doctorate from the University of Virginia School of Medicine. He then trained in internal medicine at Maine Medical Centre. He now practices natural and functional medicine in Richmond, Virginia, where his mission is not to treat disease but cure them. Dr. Leland now works with patients around the world, teaching them to live a healthy life in the true spirit of Hippocrates who believed “the greatest medicine of all is teaching people how not to need it”.

Western Medical Dentistry Exposed: Dr. Rojas Unpacks the Importance of Oral Health
Dr. Orlando Rojas believes in ethical bio-aesthetic dentistry and discovering the truth. After graduating as a dental surgeon in Colombia in 1986, Dr. Rojas was deeply disturbed and disappointed after uncovering that amalgam fillings were not safe and the dentistry world knew it but still used them. He wondered if they lied about that, what else had they lied to him about? Since that fateful day Dr. Rojas has been on a journey of truth, including witnessing the crippling effects of fluoride, and devoted his dentistry practice to that as a biological dentist, much of which he pioneered and taught himself. He has a degree in Dental Surgery and a litany of advanced certifications from local and international universities such as Harvard and NYU. He is an international lecturer and instructor, member of the International Associate for Dental Research South Africa and the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology as well as many other South African and international associations, co-founder of Dental Care Group, a group that as early as 1994 treated underprivileged South Africans with the best biological dental care, and is an associate fellow of the World Clinical Laser Institute. Dr. Rojas is also a man of principles, and abides by “the” golden rule: Do unto others what you would like to have do to you. He aims to provide the highest quality of health care through gentle, personalized conscious dentistry, which acknowledges everyone as a holistic person with not only a physical body but also mental and emotional bodies as well as a soul. Or as he puts it, “All medicine comes down to this – find out what doesn’t belong in your body and get rid of it. Find out what is missing, and replace it. The body does the rest and it is more important to understand the imbalances in your body’s basic systems and restore balance rather than name the disease and match the pill to the ill.” Join us as we explore: Dr. Rojas’s journey from believer in traditional dentistry to leaving that worldview behind. What exactly is biological dentistry? What to do if you have mercury fillings and why mercury is dangerous. How both root canals and wisdom teeth extraction usually lead to a poisoned body. What to do about root canals and wisdom teeth? How we are more than a “sack of teeth and bones”. Dr. Rojas’s personal dental hygiene routine. 3 hacks to immediately improve your oral health.

South African Neuroscientist Dr. Caroline Leaf Cleans Up Your Mental Mess
Dr. Caroline Leaf is a communication pathologist and cognitive neuroscientist specializing in cognitive and metacognitive neuropsychology. Since the early 1980s she has researched the mind-brain connection, the nature of mental health, and the formation of memory. She was one of the first in her field to study how the brain can change (neuroplasticity) with directed mind input. During her years in clinical practice she worked with many people who struggled with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE), learning disabilities (ADD, ADHD), autism, dementias and mental ill-health issues like anxiety and depression. She also teaches at academic, medical and neuroscience conferences, churches, and to various audiences around the world. Dr. Leaf is also the bestselling author of Switch on Your Brain, Think Learn Succeed, Think and Eat Yourself Smart, and now is out with her brand new book Cleaning Up Your Mental Mess - 5 Simple, Scientifically Proven Steps To Reduce Anxiety, Stress, And Toxic Thinking. In her new book she explores with rigorous research why the mind and brain are different and how what is often treated as a perceived mental illness of the brain is really about the mind and the stories and identities embedded into individuals. In her new book she outlines the necessity of managing your mind and does so with her own process called neurocycling. Join us as we explore: How Dr. Leaf has fought for decades to focus on the mind vs the brain. The difference between brain and mind? How all of us are capable and must strive to be Olympian mind athletes. The interrelationship between beliefs and habits. Why feelings of anxiety and depression are not mental illnesses.

The danger of identifying oneself as a disease How the theory of a “chemical imbalance” in the brain is a myth What neurocycling is explained with a real world example Mentions Cleaning Up Your Mental Mess - 5 Simple, Scientifically Proven Steps To Reduce Anxiety, Stress, And Toxic Thinking, PREORDER available now on: https://www.cleaningupyourmentalmess.com https://drleaf.com https://www.amazon.com/Cleaning-Your-Mental-Mess-Scientifically/dp/0801093457 Preorder comes with amazing bonus content including exclusive bonus chapters, a free one month subscription to the app, free webinars and much more https://www.instagram.com/drcarolineleaf/?hl=en https://podcasts.apple.com/za/podcast/cleaning-up-the-mental-mess-with-dr-caroline-leaf/id1334767397 https://drleaf.com/blogs/news/how-i-used-my-5-step-neurocycle-to-manage-my-mental-health-during-and-after-a-family-argument https://theswitch.app
