Episode Description

Richard Diaz, author of Illness Defined has been an outspoken advocate on the dangers associated with mercury exposure for the past 30 years. He feels strongly that the organic source of disease has been overlooked by scientists, researchers, and the medical industry. In fact, he believes that “no scientific or medical study is valid unless and until a heavy metal assay has been completed on the subject(s).” Diaz states that most people are not aware of the presence of heavy metals in medications, dental applications, makeup, consumables and vaccines. A metallic neurological disturbance can lead to violence, rage, anxiety, addictions, compulsive behaviors, and CNS disorders. Diaz has invited a special guest to join in the discussion to share his experience about how the neurotoxin Mercury was implicated in an auto accident which began his rapid descent into illness with no hope of recovery. Eliminating Mercury was the first step in his path to healing from the trauma.

Holy Hormones Honey!

Holy Hormones Honey! The Greatest Story Never Told is dedicated to every woman who has ever experienced a hormone fluctuation, from menarche to menopause! Sponsored by Truehope Inc, the leaders in brain health, the show will address core biological issues that cause mood disorders and/or mental illness from a micronutrient support perspective. Because no one can make a sound decision unless their brain functioning is intact.

For decades, the power of women’s hormone shifts has been unrecognized and underestimated. In fact, women make up the majority of mental health diagnoses’ due, in part, to a lack of education about the endocrine system and how and why our hormones affect our minds, moods, and behaviors. For too many years women have been labeled as ‘mentally disordered’ if they struggle with their menstrual cycle. Women will be the portal to sharing this information with the men and children in their lives. Because when women thrive, everyone thrives. Now that is true hope.
