    Nothing Is Absolute!

    Nothing Is Absolute!

    Probably one of the key "universal principles" to ones health...Nothing Is Absolute

    This is a mantra I use with my professional clients and my patients to help empower them in their own health, or uncovering blockages in their patients.

    Tune in while I share examples such as:


    Their story is not your story
    A lab test is a view in to uncover something not seen, or confirm something believed to be seen
    A diagnosis is only to get us to hopefully look in the right direction
    The body has an inherent ability to heal when we provide it with the right environment
    A genetic trait or mutation is not a guarantee of disease
    Pharmacogenomics are only one piece of the puzzle
    Why you need to know about NNT (number needed to treat) in relation to medical interventions

    Connection: The Primal Need for Health and Longevity

    Connection: The Primal Need for Health and Longevity

    Science has long known that connection and community are key factors to health and longevity. Although that does not mean that you have to become a social butterfly- we thrive on connection many different ways: to people, to ourselves, to nature, animals, as well as source (God, angels, Universal energy)

    Tune on in while I share with you some tips to reengage connection in your life, as well as some awareness tid bits on where we are now in our society and how this disconnection is the real epidemic.

    They say history doesn't repeat itself...well, maybe it gets turned up a notch

    They say history doesn't repeat itself...well, maybe it gets turned up a notch

    Howdy! 

    I've got some passion flowing in this one folks- let's call it a structured rant!

    Today some of our countries brightest and bravest physicians were hosted by Senator Johnson for a discussion on U.S. COVID-19 response, and much of what I was writing about in my 2013 book, Whole Pharmacy, in Chapter 4, pg. 33 The Extension of Sick Care- is the same crap that is going on today...but worse.
    Why worse? More lives are paying the ultimate price- their health and their freedom.


    In my book I talk about publication bias...drug companies cherry picking on the positive studies and burying the negative studies...we are seeing it with CV Vax
    In my book I talk about Vioxx- burying data that lead to tens of thousands of heart disease...we are seeing it with CV Vax
    In my book I talk about agencies recommending Tamiflu while data from phase III trials were never released- EVEN 10 YEARS AFTER APPROVAL`... we are seeing it with the CV Vax

    Tune in folks!

    Yours in health and freedom,

    Rob

    Autoimmune Disease, Self Love, and a truly Wholistic Approach

    Autoimmune Disease, Self Love, and a truly Wholistic Approach

    Hey Folks! For both patients and practitioners, autoimmune disease is the real deal. From Rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, hashimotos, and the rest, it seems we keep seeing and hearing more and more.  

    From a functional point of view, we always look at the foundational elements; diet, gut heath, adrenals, hormonal balance, stress management, nutritional relevancy, nutraceutical supplementation and more. And...with every disease we must recognize that there is often if not always, an emotional element involved. 

    I look to some of my teachers such as Dr John Sarno, Caroline Myss in this podcast, some of the great psychotherapists of the past such as Alexander, while recognizing the power of lack of loving self, and the works of modern-day motivational coaches such as Mel Robbins (High Five Habit) I also touch upon. 

    Tune on in as I share with you how Dr Kay Corpus MD and I approach this BEYOND FUNCTIONAL APPROACH, from the foundation, what the labs say, and what could be really going on with the patient, which often just takes a little bit of listening.

    Whole Pharmacy Book- Just as...if not more relevant today than when I wrote it 9 years ago

    Honestly, I don't know why I buried this book for so long. Shortly after publishing it, I took it down off of Amazon, sold the copies I had in print...and moved on.

    Until Now

    These times are clamoring for this book- I pulled it out of the closet last night, dusted it off, and realized...THIS IS AMAZING, and NEEDED!

    So, I will be creating an updated version, speaking to you from what else we know in 2022- and for now, am offering the PDF of this book for only $5... (which you will then also get the updated e-version for FREE- and a bunch of cool webinars I am putting together)

    Tune on in to this podcast to discover:


    Simple steps to reclaiming, gaining, and maintaining your health and vitality
    The hidden truths about medications and vaccinations that most doctors and pharmacists wont tell you
    Alternatives and complements to the "modern day diseases" that are destroying your health and stealing your wealth
    Achieving your ultimate health through lifestyle, natural and mind body medicine
    ...and a lot more

    "Liberty is to the collective body, what health is to every individual body. Without health no pleasure can be tasted by man; without liberty, no happiness can be enjoyed by society"- Thomas Jefferson

    Folks, I believe that in medicine we can choose to reside at the intersection of humanities and science, and there is a bright future ahead for the health, wellness and wealth of our society- but simple shifts in perception and action leading to major change must occur.

    Our dominant western medical system itself has grown to reside at the intersection of lack of morals and sciences, and has gotten there on the backs of greed, manipulation and strong armed tactics.

    Claim Your Copy

    We must decide which intersection to step off from, and which road to travel. Utilizing the great advances of modern day science combined with age old traditions of healing, for the benefit of our nations health and economies. This will require recognizing the reality where the medical system is now, how it got here, and demanding a change from ourselves, patients, health care practitioners, industries and policy makers.
