LIVE From The US Health Freedom Congress!
Who Is the National Health Freedom Coalition?
Special Guest Michelle Cotterman and Nadera Lopez-Garrity from Ohio Health Freedom!
Health Freedom Ohio is a group of organized citizens, medical and health professionals dedicated to raising awareness about complementary and alternative pathways to maintain health and wellness. We are able to appreciate a life enriched by our right to maintain health freedom when we are fully aware of our choices. Our goal is to bring exceptional practitioners to light and make connections between those who seek an alternative to allopathic, pharmaceutical-based healthcare and those who are applying these modalities. We aim to succeed where the industry has failed and actively advocate to preserve your fundamental human right of health freedom within the State of Ohio. In addition, through your local government, we create protective bills while challenging existing laws that mandate medicine. It’s your health, your life, your way. We hope you will join us on the journey of discovery and we look forward to learning together.
Ohio Advocates for Medical Freedom is a non-partisan group advocating for your right to choose or refuse any medical treatment or procedure. OAMF is comprised of ordinary people who have come together with one goal in mind. That goal is the preservation of freedom, more specifically medical freedom. OAMF is a diverse group of people with professions including doctors, nurses, engineers, lawyers, and other healthcare providers. We all share the same concern and have learned that the only way to stop medical mandates and the infringement on medical rights is to organize and push back against bad legislation and policies. We base our strategies in fact and truth and present that information to the public and legislators. It is important that factual information is presented, so the opposition (the side willing to sacrifice freedom for personal gain) cannot dispute what we present.
Latest Update on Ohio HB193 Speaker Rosenberger acted against the informed consent rights of the Ohio worker and referred House Bill 193 to another committee for further discussion, the Ohio House Health Committee. Essentially, he told supporters that nearly 2.5 years isn’t enough consideration to uphold their right to say NO to flu shot. He sided with his industry sponsors, ignoring the fact that this issue has to do with an employee’s right to informed consent. The Health Committee is chaired by Representative Huffman, a physician from Tipp City. We take major issue with this because, as you can see from this graph from FollowTheMoney.org, Rep. Huffman is heavily sponsored by the health industry. Until recently, according to his own bio, Rep. Huffman served on the Board of Directors for Premier Physician Services. We believe this is a conflict of interest. Can Ohio workers count on Huffman to hear testimony and take a vote on HB 193, considering he has so many affiliations with some hospitals and the Ohio Hospital Association is opposing this bill? https://www.followthemoney.org/entity-details?eid=2804924&default=lawmaker
Court Overturns Decision by Pennsylvania Medical Center to Terminate Nurse Over Refusal of Vaccine The Third Circuit Court of Appeals in Pennsylvania has overturned a lower court’s decision to dismiss a nurse’s lawsuit against Mount Nittany Medical Center for discriminating against her when she supplied a doctor’s exemption to a mandatory tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis vaccine as a condition for continued employment, but was nevertheless terminated from employment for refusing to receive the vaccine. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) also appeared as amicus in the Third Circuit Court in support of Nurse Ruggiero and her claim for discrimination. Registered nurse, Aleka Ruggiero, worked as a nurse at State College, Pennsylvania-based Mount Nittany Medical Center (MNMC), until July of 2015. In April 2015, Ms. Ruggiero received a memorandum from the medical center advising her that all clinical employees were required to receive a vaccine for tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis. Ms. Ruggiero submitted a letter from her doctor saying she was medically exempt from receiving the vaccine because of severe anxiety related to her food allergies and eosinophilic esophagitis. In addition, Ms. Ruggiero offered to wear a mask while at work, such as other nurses are allowed to do during flu season when they refuse the flu vaccine.
‘Realistic shift’ in diet could save the US up to $38 billion annually A 20% increase in adherence to the Healthy Eating Index could result in as much as $37.8 billion in health-related costs, according to findings presented at Nutrition 2018, the first-ever flagship meeting of the American Society for Nutrition. Carolyn Scrafford, PhD, MPH, senior managing scientist at Exponent, and colleagues looked at estimates from the Healthy Eating Index 2015, an eating pattern that according to press release, currently has about a 60% adherence among the average U.S. adult. Researchers also looked at Mediterranean diet adherence, on which the average U.S. adult currently scores about 3.5 out of 9 possible points, also according to the release. Scrafford and colleagues looked at risk estimates to quantify the link between dietary patterns and health outcomes such as Alzheimer’s disease cancer, CVD, hip fracture, stroke and type 2 diabetes. They accommodated double counting by adjusting costs to minimize potential overlap of co-morbidities. Costs were in 2017 dollars.

Combat Vet Posts Shocking Picture of How Many Pills He Has to Take Because Cannabis is Illegal One veteran got so frustrated with the number of pills he had been prescribed to take on a daily basis that he decided to create a visual aid. After calculating that he took more than 9,855 prescription pills annually, he got an idea. Joshua Lee served with the Missouri National Guard from 2007 to 2014, and spent one year in Afghanistan, where he was diagnosed with a mysterious yet painful illness, an inflammation of the hands. In October 2010, Lee returned home from Afghanistan and began going to the VA for medical treatment—and that is when the script count skyrocketed. He was given 27 different pills to take each day and his weight ballooned. He went from weighing a normal 160 pounds to weighing 220 pounds with a size 40-inch waist in 2017. He said that when someone remarked, “Man! You’ve really let yourself go!” he knew he had a problem.
Comment of The Day!
Robert- I have recently become a faithful listener of your show. Today, I watched your show on YouTube, and was entranced with your guest host Ann Archer Butcher. Her story about Donald Trump literally brought me to tears. It reassured me and gave me real hope for the future of this country. Despite the constant barrage of personal attacks by the Establishment- I felt the energy, from the beginning of his pursuit of the presidency, that Ann described, emanating from him. His energy and drive are making this world a better place to live in- in my estimation. I was onboard when “The Truth About Cancer” docu-series first was broadcast. I have since become a big supporter of the cause, and have made it my mission to inform people- and make them aware that they need to assume responsibility for their own health, and not blindly follow Big Medicine- without being informed. That was when I first learned of you. It can’t be over-emphasized enough, how important your work is to the world. The time has come, to peel back the layers of misinformation and deceit- regarding health, nutrition, and personal empowerment- and lead the masses to the truth of good health, and well being. I wish I had pursued a medical career when I was young, so I could be a leader in Naturopathic medicine, today. I still try to teach, and inform, as many people as I can. I am learning every day- thanks to you, and many other like-minded visionaries. I really want to thank you, for all that you do! It means the world- to the world that cares about the World! Godspeed…
Hour 2 – Advanced Medicine with Dr. Rashid Buttar!
Dr. Buttar is back to talk about what’s happening in the world of health news. Here’s what we have in store for you today:
Sugar: Babies and toddlers are eating too much added sugar, study says Americans love affair with sugar starts at a very early age as many toddlers are consuming added sugar at levels that exceed the maximum amount recommended for adults, a new study has found. Added sugar consumption starts for many before their first birthday and increases with age as toddlers between the ages of 19 and 23 months are consuming on average more than 7 teaspoons of added sugar a day. That’s more than the amount found in a Snickers bar. Eating foods with added sugar at an early age can influence food preferences that set a pattern for less healthy food choices later in life, researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said. Consuming added sugar has been linked to a host of health problems including skyrocketing obesity rates and increased risk for diabetes and heart disease.
Bacteriophages offer promising alternative to antibiotics Results from a new clinical study have confirmed the safety and tolerability of using bacteria-specific viruses known as bacteriophages to eliminate disease-causing bacteria in the gut. The new treatment could be used in place of antibiotics to rid the gut of harmful bacteria and promote the growth of beneficial bacteria that are known to enhance gastrointestinal health, immune function and anti-inflammatory processes. “People taking antibiotics can develop resistance and experience gastrointestinal distress since antibiotics kill both bad and good bacteria in the gut,” said study co-investigator, Taylor C. Wallace, Ph.D., principal and CEO of the Think Healthy Group Inc. and an adjunct professor in the Department of Nutrition and Food Studies at George Mason University. “Using viruses that infect only specific types of bacteria spares the many good bacteria in the gut, which are linked to numerous long-term beneficial health outcomes. We have shown for the first time that bacteriophage treatment has no apparent side effects, at least with short-term use.”
Bacteriophages: Are they an overlooked driver of Parkinson’s disease? In the first study of its kind, researchers from the New York-based Human Microbiology Institute have discovered the role certain bacteriophages may play in the onset of Parkinson’s disease (PD). The research is presented at ASM Microbe, the annual meeting of the American Society for Microbiology, held from June 7th to June 11th in Atlanta, Georgia. The researchers, led by George, Tetz, M.D., Ph.D., Human Microbiology Institute, showed that the abundance of lytic Lactococcusphages was higher in PD patients when compared to healthy individuals. This abundance led to a 10-fold reduction in neurotransmitter-producing Lactococcus, suggesting the possible role of phages in neurodegeneration. Comparative analysis of the bacterial component also revealed significant decreases in Streptococcus spp. and Lactobacillus spp. in PD.
Immune system does not recover despite cured hepatitis C infection Changes to the immune system remain many years after a hepatitis C infection heals, a new study by researchers at Karolinska Institutet, Sweden, and Hannover Medical School, Germany, shows. The findings, presented in Nature Communications, increases understanding about chronic infection and the way it regulates and impacts composition of the immune system. Infection with hepatitis C virus (HCV) turns almost always chronic and poses a major health problem around the world. The infection can lead to cirrhosis and cancer of the liver when the immune system fails to fight the virus. Eventually the immune system becomes exhausted. Since a couple of years, however, most patients with HCV can now be cured in a matter of a few weeks with revolutionary new medications. The current study included 40 patients with chronic HCV infection whom researchers followed before, during and after treatment with these new medications to investigate impact on the composition and diversity of the immune system. Diversity is vital to the ability of the immune system to fight infections. Of particular importance are natural killer cells (NK), a type of white blood cells. The researchers used flow cytometry and a new measurement method to derive the composition of the immune system, as well as the appearance of NK cells and their function in the blood.
Study identifies a link between antidepressant treatment resistance and inflammation Researchers at Emory University have found that depressed patients who have not responded to multiple antidepressants exhibit evidence of increased inflammation. Findings were recently published online in the journal, Psychoneuroendocrinology. The study shows that antidepressant treatment resistance is associated with increased inflammatory markers in patients with depression. One third of patients with depression fail to respond to currently available antidepressant medications. Previous studies among laboratory animals have shown that inflammation has effects on the brain that can undermine the effectiveness of conventional antidepressants. This is one of the first studies in humans that confirms these findings. “Our study suggests that measuring inflammatory markers and targeting inflammation or its downstream effects on the brain may benefit patients with multiple failed antidepressant treatment trials during their current depressive episode,” says senior author Andrew H. Miller, MD, William P. Timmie Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Emory University School of Medicine.
