Monday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
A day after our reporting, Illinois ended isolated seclusion of children in schools across the state. What happened?Children’s voices were heard This week, we published an investigation in collaboration with the Chicago Tribune about the use — and misuse — of seclusion rooms that children are shut inside, alone, in public schools across Illinois. We had worked on the story for nearly a year. Day after day, night after night, we read the details of more than 20,000 incidents of “isolated timeout” and entered them by hand into a database we created. We did the same for physical restraint, when staff members put their hands on a child; we’ll publish that story in the next few weeks. Many of the isolated timeout incident reports we read — some 50,000 pages — included what happened to children in seclusion, often in their own words as school employees kept moment-by-moment logs. The children, most of them with disabilities, begged to be let out, cried for their parents, expressed despair. We included their quotes throughout our story. We thought it was crucial that their voices be heard.
Efforts to move the needle on flu shot rates get stuck It’s free and available everywhere. Yet most Americans skip the annual flu shot—with the number of dispensed vaccines barely changed in the past decade, despite government removal of cost and access obstacles. “We are kind of spinning our wheels trying to reach a larger portion of the population,” said Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious-disease specialist at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tenn., and medical director of the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases. Public health officials recommend that nearly all people get the flu shot. The 2010 Affordable Care Act required all insurers to waive out-of-pocket costs for plan members for the vaccinations and, in the past few years, all states allowed pharmacists to administer the shots, which have made them available in drugstores, grocery chains and big-box stores.

Dr. Wendell Whitman was a tireless advocate for health freedom and a pioneer in the field of natural health. In 1991, recognizing the inadequacy of formal health education outside of the traditional medical field, he founded Trinity School of Natural Health.
Trinity School of Natural Health was founded for the purpose of presenting alternative natural health education to everyone. Today, the Trinity repertoire of programs and courses has evolved into a powerful, educational process that enables students to improve their own health, enhance the good health of their families, friends and communities, and their own professional practices.
Our philosophy is that we are intrinsically holistic and should therefore continually pursue true health through the development of the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of the whole person. Our vision is to become the global leader in natural health education by creating a community of individuals who are committed to sharing their knowledge of the power and purpose of holistic health. As we strive to create an exceptional student experience, we will treat each person who chooses Trinity with respect and dignity. Every decision made, every single day, will be focused solely on what is best for our students.
Prestigious NY Cancer Center Will Spend $3.7M To Study Bogus Cancer Treatment Sometimes I’m not sure whether the best response to pseudoscience is to ignore it, or to patiently try to explain why it’s wrong, or to get mad. This week I’m mad. My anger and frustration was triggered by a tweet from Memorial Sloan-Kettering’s Integrative Medicine account. For those who don’t know, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center is one of the world’s leading cancer centers, both for treatment and research. If you are diagnosed with cancer, MSK is one of the best places to go. But not everything at MSK is world class. Unfortunately, they have an “integrative medicine” center that offers a mixture of therapies ranging from helpful to benign to useless. One of their biggest activities is acupuncture, which they claim offers a wide range of benefits to cancer patients.
Cancer patients are at higher risk of dying from heart disease and stroke More than one in ten cancer patients do not die from their cancer but from heart and blood vessel problems instead, according to new research published in the European Heart Journal today. For some cancers, like breast, prostate, endometrial, and thyroid cancer, around half will die from cardiovascular disease (CVD). Dr. Nicholas Zaorsky, a radiation oncologist, and Dr. Kathleen Sturgeon, an assistant professor in public health sciences, both at Penn State College of Medicine and Penn State Cancer Institute, Hershey, Pennsylvania, USA, and colleagues compared the US general population with over 3.2 million US patients who had been diagnosed with cancer between 1973 and 2012. They used information contained in the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) database to look at deaths from CVD, which included heart disease, high blood pressure, cerebrovascular disease, blocked arteries and damage to the aorta—the main artery carrying blood from the heart to the rest of the body. They adjusted their analyses to take account of factors that could affect the results, such as age, race and sex, and they looked specifically at 28 different types of cancer.
Questions of The Day!
I have been watching your show on youtube for the last couple years. I have issues similar to the ones you had regarding severe allergies, asthma, nasal polyps, sinusitis, and did all the medical interventions I was told by medical doctors to include my first nasal polyp surgery when I was 18 and the issue returned less than 1 year. Anyway, flash forward, I have adult onset asthma, and it wasn’t that bad until I had 1 major attack the day after allergy testing and the kenalog shot the same day in Feb 2016. I then got pregnant with my first daughter and had no asthma through that pregnancy, but a lot of exacerbations after. I was not very natural oriented yet and went for allergy testing and they prescribed me symbicort. Well, another child later, obviously a lot of sleepless nights, I seem to be more vulnerable to infections now particularly in oct nov dec and end up having to go to the ER for asthma exacerbations. I feel my adrenals are shot from the symbicort, but short term I rely on it, while long term I know it is making my system weaker. I could get into a lot more details, but I just need some guidance on what possible homeopathetic remedies to try to help with the asthma flares even if in combo with my regular meds (chest spasms, closing airways, alternating dry cough to cough) and something to help rebuild my own adrenals ability to produce cortisol. And slowly get off the symbicort, it actually has made my albuterol less effective at times when I catch an infection. I tried cold turkey, but I don’t think my body can handle it because of my adrenals probably being really messed up from my stressful last couple years with moving, having kids, etc, and the reliance on symbicort. I am sorry if this is too much, but I am really struggling lately. I have tried a few homeopathic remedies, just not sure if I’m down the right path. I am in Las Vegas, if you have anyone to recommend for me to go see. If you can email me back that would be great, as I do not have access to internet all the time lately to stream your videos on time.
Thank you so much!
Are there instances where silver hydrosol wouldn’t be helpful and antibiotics would be necessary?
Ten percent of Australian women experiencing early menopause Health reporter for The Sydney Morning Herald Melissa Cunningham exposes the shocking news that 10 percent of Australian women experience early menopause, a rare condition which causes ovarian insufficiency in women under 40 years of age. This is a huge number of young women and is extremely alarming. Lorena Beatriz was 25 when she was diagnosed with early onset menopause and she is not alone for 10 percent of Australian women experience early menopause. It is very rare for the condition known as premature ovarian failure to occur at such an early age with the annual incidence at 10 per 100,000 between 15 and 29 years of age. According to Health Talk Australia: Early menopause (menopause before age 45) or premature ovarian insufficiency (loss of ovarian function before age 40 years) are complex health conditions with many different causes, both known and unknown.
