    Ep. 105 - Bretigne Shaffer - Medical Freedom, Cannabis & Vaccine Mandates

    Ep. 105 - Bretigne Shaffer - Medical Freedom, Cannabis & Vaccine Mandates

    Join Bretigne Shaffer and I as we take a trip down the rabbit hole of medical freedom.  Bretigne is a longtime libertarian journalist, and she's a resident of California.  There has been a push in recent years in CA (and several states) to mandate vaccines for children.  And in some of those states there are no medical exemptions - even for kids who have had past reactions to vaccines (like our guest from Monday's show, Sarah).  This overstep by government is quite alarming to liberty lovers like myself and Bretigne.  So I wanted to discuss this issue and expand on some of the topics Sarah brought up in Monday's episode.  We hope to strip the emotion out of this subject and approach this issue like we do cannabis - on the basis of natural rights, bodily autonomy, and personal liberty.  I hope you'll join us on this little jaunt.

    Ep. 104 - Sarah Morris - Cannabis for Dysautonomia

    Ep. 104 - Sarah Morris - Cannabis for Dysautonomia

    Sarah Morris first remembers blacking out when she was 5 years old, but she wasn't diagnosed with dysautonomia until almost 25 years later.  Dysautonomia is a dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system.  You know that system of the body that handles trivial things like  circulation, temperature regulation, digestion, etc.  And Sarah has had difficulty in all these areas.  She can get hypothermia in the middle of the summer in Georgia.  She has a Groshong line inserted into her vein to allow for easier access when she needs iv fluids, and she also has a lot of trouble with digestion.  Her body lives in a fight or flight state.  But cannabis helps ease her nausea and allows her to eat and gets her parasympathetic system to kick in so her adrenals are not in overdrive.   Cannabis allows her to be herself in spite of her many health issues.

    Ep. 103 - Dwayne Bottoms - Cannabis for Parkinson's Disease

    Ep. 103 - Dwayne Bottoms - Cannabis for Parkinson's Disease

    Dwayne Bottoms told me something no one else has ever told me on the podcast - that he bought cannabis for medical use during a missions trip - with his pastor's blessing!  If that doesn't show you how times and attitudes are changing around cannabis I don't know what will.

    Dwayne began using cannabis a few years ago to treat his Parkinson's Disease instead of opioids replacement.  After almost losing his marriage, Dwayne decided it was time to kick his opiates for good, and he now uses cannabis and one pharmaceutical drug to treat his Parkinson's.  Parkinson's is a progressive disease, so it's an uphill battle for Dwayne.  But with the help of cannabis and his trusty sidekick, Ash, he's taking on this fight day by day.

    Ep. 101 - Ted Metz - Cannabis for Squamous Cell Carcinoma

    Ep. 101 - Ted Metz - Cannabis for Squamous Cell Carcinoma

    Ted Metz went to see a dermatologist for what he thought was a rash.  Turns out it was a very aggressive squamous cell carcinoma.  Within a couple of months the small place behind his ear grew to the size of a peach.  After his diagnosis Ted started a routine of concentrated cannabis oil (Rick Simpson oil) while awaiting surgery.  The day before his surgery a large chunk of the tumor fell out.  Ted's surgery lasted about half the projected time, and the surgeons were able to easily find the edges of the tumor because it had started to die.  His RSO routine had definitely been working.

    Ted continued to medicate with cannabis post-surgery and during radiation which was excruciating.  His prognosis is good, and he's continuing to be an outspoken advocate for the plant.

    Ep. 100 - Richard J Maybury - Natural Rights & Common Law

    Ep. 100 - Richard J Maybury - Natural Rights & Common Law

    Our nation has morphed from one founded upon the principles of life, liberty & the pursuit of happiness into a behemoth that routinely locks its citizens in cages over a plant and other victimless crimes.  Somewhere this nation clearly went off the rails.  For episode 100 I wanted to take a deep dive into the subject of Natural Rights and Common Law.  Who better to invite on to discuss those issues than an author who has more than 2,000,000 words published on the very subject?  So on a whim a few weeks ago I reached out to Richard J. Maybury via his publishing company, and to my delight I received an email from his wife a couple of days later asking me when I'd like to schedule a time to chat with him.  I was on cloud nine when I got her email, and today, I'm thrilled to air the discussion Richard and I had about his book Whatever Happened to Justice which explains in detail the concepts of natural rights and common law and how our current legal system has gone awry. I hope you enjoy episode 100, and I hope you come away from our discussion more well informed on this very important topic.

Mistty ,

Awesome show

I have thoroughly enjoyed this podcast. As a nurse, I have really enjoyed hearing the first hand accounts of people who are using cannabis and seeing what a difference it can make in their lives. The guests have been entertaining and informative. I look forward to more shows in the future.

Rayaboy ,

Wonderful Show!

This podcast is great. Rachel interviews real people who have addressed health concerns by using cannabis and improved their lives. She also takes a look at the injustice people face because of the war on drugs. Very informative and important topic for a podcast!

Amazing stories

More people need to hear these stories of healing and restoration. Further proof the government has no business telling us what we can or cannot put in our bodies.
