Sunday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
Special Guest- Diane Miller
Diane Miller is a Minnesota attorney who successfully helped to defend a Minnesota farmer from charges of “practice of medicine without a license”. After State v. Saunders, Miller proceeded to design health freedom legislation for the State of Minnesota and was the lead lobbyist and legislative consultant to the Minnesota Natural Health-Legal Reform Project responsible for passing the consumer driven legislation entitled the Minnesota Complementary and Alternative Health Care Freedom of Access Act. The new law exempts unlicensed health care practitioners from charges of “practice of medicine without a license”. In 2000 Miller co-founded the National Health Freedom Coalition, a national information resource for health freedom decision-making, to support individuals and states that are interested in health seekers access to complementary and alternative health care.Miller is currently Legal and Public Policy Director of the National Health Freedom Coalition (NHFC) and it’s sister organization, the National Health Freedom Action (NHFA). NHFC provides information and resources to health freedom decision-makers across the country. Her work involves state, national, and international health freedom issues, and Miller works to help monitor and promote an understanding of various forms of legislation, international trade guidelines, and Charters. Her role as Co-Moderator of the World Health Freedom Assembly, a 2006 project of NHFC, and her future role as Co-Moderator of the upcoming United States Health Freedom Assembly in October 2007 demonstrate her vision and determination to bring health freedom to the United States and global conversations and arena.
Model Right to Refuse Legislation & Action Alert Many Americans are asking: What can we do to protect our health freedom? Can we be forced to get a vaccination or be tested? Why aren’t all options to strengthen the immune system being encouraged? Pass a Bill in Your State to Protect Your Health Freedom to Decline Emergency Countermeasures. Take action by writing to your state legislators. Ask them to pass a bill in your state to protect your health freedom and your right to refuse emergency countermeasures. NHFA supports protecting the long-standing American freedom of the right to refuse medical interventions that do not have our consent. This basic constitutional right of bodily autonomy should stand when it is challenged, even during an emergency. We recommend that citizens contact their state legislators and work to pass strong laws to protect this basic health freedom principle. Citizens can educate legislators about their expectations of freedom and their vision for a healthy America.
A Federal Court Protects the Constitutional Rights of Citizens during COVID! September 14, 2020, Judge, William Stickman IV, from the United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania, issued an opinion declaring unconstitutional, the Pennsylvania Executive Orders on (1) restrictions on gatherings and (2) closing “non-life sustaining” businesses and directing Pennsylvanians to stay-at-home. The federal judge cited Jacobson v. Massachusetts, 197 U.S. 11, 31 (1905) to discuss when and when not to give broad deference to state government during emergencies and to show how Courts have evolved over time in the past 100 years since the Jacobson case to be more vigilant in the protection of civil liberties and the need to apply regular constitutional scrutiny when civil liberties are at stake. [Read Opinion Here] For over 100 years, health freedom and medical choice advocates have been struggling under the shadow of a 1905 Supreme Court case, Jacobson v. Massachusetts, that gave broad deference to state governments to make laws in times of emergency regarding vaccines, even at the expense of civil liberties. In Jacobson a state law was considered constitutional that mandated a small pox vaccine during an emergency, charging a fine for those who did not comply. The Jacobson case has been used to justify the use of the police power of a state to attain the goals of states to protect citizens. As recent as 2016 the Jacobson case was cited to justify the constitutionality of a California law passed in the wake of a measles outbreak, requiring all children to receive certain vaccines before they could attend school or day care, and not allowing for any exemption based on personal or religious beliefs.[ii]
Hour 2 ENCORE – Special Guest Judy Masters
Judy Masters is a former high school teacher and college adjunct instructor, with undergraduate and graduate degrees in English, Theatre and Secondary Education. Prior to her involvement in natural health, she worked nearly 15 years as a systems engineer with a Fortune 500 automotive company. At the urging of a store patron and CNHP graduate, Judy enrolled in her first Certified Natural Health Professional seminar. She completed her certification in 2000 and is now a doctor of natural health and board-certified doctor of natural medicine.

She specializes in Bach Flowers, herbology, naturopathic history and legalities, as well as business education.
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.
Family- Parts One & Two: A Special Series by Judy Masters When last we left 61-year-old me, I was staring, slack-jawed, at my adoption papers. I had always known they existed… never imagined actually reading them. And yet, here they were. It was fantastic because I recognized the last name. I knew that name. Now, I should clarify that I didn’t know the name because I was acquainted with the woman. I knew the last name because I knew the last name. As I stood there, staring at the paper, I saw the name, “Orbison.” And, yes, the VERY first freakin’ thing I said was, “I’m an ORBISON!” *The mind boggles* “I wonder if I’m related to Roy?!” At least I had my priorities straight. This set off a search for my biological mother, Letitia Orbison. I learned that she had passed in the mid-1990s. While I felt a tinge of sadness to know that I could never meet her, I wasn’t surprised. I had no reason to believe that she had pursued finding me and I never felt it was my place to hunt her down and re-enter her life. Many don’t understand my position, but it always made sense to me. My belief is, and had always been, that I was very carefully placed with an excellent adoption agency. This seemed to me a deliberate and loving act by my biological mother (and likely her family.) It made perfect sense that I would have been placed with an agency in Evanston, Illinois, roughly 80+ miles from Rockford, where I learned that Letitia was from. Never one to let things go, I tried in vain to connect Letitia to Roy. Again… priorities… but I could only find that he had played a couple of concerts there, and that there seemed to be a few other Orbisons in Rockford. I don’t give up easily.
