    S04E20 - Integrative Quantum Healing with Naturopathic Dr. Elizabeth Bolen

    Wow, I can’t believe we’ve made it to the season finale! To close out the season, I connected with a truly magnificent healer and teacher, who shares her wisdom with patients and practitioners alike.

    Dr. Elizabeth Bolen, ND, is an adventurous woman who broke free from conventional paradigms in order to liberate a new era in health. Her tenacity keeps her grounded. Dr. Liz moved to a small town in the Canadian Arctic, pivoted her entire practice virtually, and she continues to build her practice regardless of where her RCMP husband gets posted, all while raising her young child.

    Liz is a truly authentic soul that sees your inner magnificence, and listens to you un-judgmentally while holding sacred space for your transformation. Her ability to lovingly call you out on your BS as she compassionately guides you forward, despite yourself, guarantees your success. Feeling trapped and a black sheep all her life, Liz fostered her inner resilience by pushing herself to find freedom that allows her to thrive. The poster child for perfectionist and overachiever, Liz has adopted imperfect action, and finds triumph through wielding the magic of being high functioning.

    Walking the “alternative” path, she has found her calling in integrative Quantum Healing. She is calling her kin to find their home in their profession of their dreams. Liz is a wonderful guide on the journey of bridging science, medicine, and magic in the field of Quantum Healing.

    S04E18 - The Spiritual Journey to Personal and Public Health with Dr. Adeola Oke

    S04E18 - The Spiritual Journey to Personal and Public Health with Dr. Adeola Oke

    Hello, hello everyone! I have to admit this week got away from me and I am a day late posting this episode. Not only that, but I’m preparing for some huge changes here at the podcast and will be taking my end-of-season break here shortly as a result.

    Not to worry, I’ll see you on the other side, when I’m back in the fall with a very special premiere of Season 5, so stay tuned!

    Today I had the absolute pleasure chatting with the genius nursing major turned pharmacist, with a Masters in Public Health somewhere in between. Oh and did I mention she is also a mother to 5 children?

    Y’all, Dr. Adeola Oke does it all!

    She is a daughter, wife, mother of five, and the founder of Wellness Surge. She is a Clinical Pharmacy Specialist that encourages holistic health through the use of diet, exercise and medications. Over the past 11 years in her professional capacity as a pharmacist, she has used her knowledge of both Western and Natural Supplements in diets to reduce the burden of chronic diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol.

    Her passion for reducing the burden of chronic disease and helping people live healthy lifestyles motivated her to earn three prestigious degrees in healthcare. She holds a Bachelors of Science in Nursing from the University of Maryland School of Nursing; a Masters degree in Public Health from the University of Maryland School of Medicine; a Doctor of Pharmacy degree from University of Maryland School of Pharmacy and is a Board Certified Pharmacotherapy Specialist.

    As a working mom, Dr. Oke realizes that most people struggle to find time to care for their health, which she knows from experience, can lead to inflammation and chronic disease. Her commitment to empowering people like her that are stressed by the hustle and bustle of modern-day life led her to create a natural great tasting formula to combat inflammation and support immunity, relieve stress, boost energy.

    She is also the Chairman of Honoured Orphans Network, a non-profit established to enhance the lives of orphans through mentorship and financial support.

    One of her goals in life is to reduce the burden of poverty, stress and everyday diseases in busy working women. She lives with her husband, mom and 5 kids in Arizona.

    S04E17 - The Hidden Dangers of Technology (and How You Can Defend Yourself) withDaniel DeBaun

    S04E17 - The Hidden Dangers of Technology (and How You Can Defend Yourself) withDaniel DeBaun

    Hey there, dear listeners! Today I have a slight deviation from my usual podcasts where I interview a pharmacist or other healthcare professional. Today I’m bringing you the other side of the story, discussing medical research about an invisible and silent environmental pollutant that plagues health, unbeknownst to many of us. We touch on everything from cell phones to wifi to microwaves in this episode! Today we dive deep into industrial electromagnetic toxicity with author and industry leader of EMF radiation, Daniel DeBaun.

    Daniel is an internationally recognized expert in EMF radiation, EMF shielding, and EMF-related health issues with special focus on the effect of exposure from mobile devices such as laptops, tablets, and cell phones. Daniel’s concern regarding the health impact of EMF emissions grew from over thirty years of engineering experience in the telecommunications industry, where he held a variety of executive positions at SAIC, Telcordia, AT&T, and Bell Labs. He is the co-author of Radiation Nation: The Fallout of Modern Technology.

    Find more information and connect with Daniel via:
    -DefenderShield Website: https://www.defendershield.com/
    -Radiation Nation Book: https://www.defendershield.com/radiation-nation

    ----------------
    The constant and ever-increasing exposure to Electromagnetic Frequency (EMF) radiation emitted by cell phones, tablets, laptops, WiFi and Bluetooth is one of the most critical health issues facing our society today.

    Researchers have found associations between EMF exposure and neurological degeneration, DNA damage & tumors, and problems with the nervous, immune, and reproductive systems. Health outcomes linked to EMF exposure range from insomnia & ADHD (plus other memory & focus problems), to mental illness, chronic disease states, autism, cancer, & Alzheimer’s.

    Studies also indicate that EMF radiation is especially harmful to our developing children, many of whom begin using wireless communication devices before they learn to talk, and are exposed to this radiation while still in the womb.

    With 5G — the newest and fastest cellular network — being deployed around the world, DeBaun and many other scientists and researchers are weary of the negative biological impacts this higher-frequency wave might have on humans, animals, crops, and entire ecosystems.
    Even though EMFs emitted from mobile devices and cell towers can cause biological changes in our bodies, DeBaun says that doesn't necessarily mean that we must give up our gadgets. Fortunately, there are simple and effective steps we can take to minimize the risks posed by EMF emissions, and we explain those steps on our website and in our book.

    Hey Holistic Pharmacy listeners, I hope you’ve been enjoying this season so far! If you would like to appear on the show or would like to nominate an inspirational pharmacist, please email me at marina@rawfork.com or drop me a line on IG @rawfork.

    This week I met with a wonderful fellow pharmacist who is serving her community by educating and helping set up a strong foundation for health.

    Dr. Phyllis Kamau, is a pharmacist, entrepreneur, consultant and patient advocate. She holds a Doctor of Pharmacy degree from Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama. She also holds a Bachelor’s in Biology from the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

    In addition to working as a community pharmacist, she provides personalized diabetes coaching for type 2 adults. While focus is on adults, she believes in teaching children as well so they can have a successful foundation in managing and potentially reversing diabetes.
    Dr. Kamau knows there is no single approach that works for everyone, so she continues to educate herself in functional medicine and emerging therapies to provide the most comprehensive program that works for each of her client’s individual needs. She teaches and creates awareness about diabetes and is the founder and CEO of Phyl Enterprises, LLC.

    Dr. Kamau practices in Houston where she lives with her husband and three kids. She enjoys cooking, traveling and creating memories with her family.

    S04E15 - Writing Your Own Path with Dr. Frieda Wiley

    S04E15 - Writing Your Own Path with Dr. Frieda Wiley

    Hola, I’m back from my first-ever LIVE retreat in Costa Rica! If you’re interested in following my journey please tune into my IG profile @rawfork https://www.instagram.com/rawfork/ where I share lots of photos, videos and takeaways from this truly transformative experience.
    Now let’s get back to today’s podcast episode! I’m super excited to introduce you to my next guest, with whom I had a blast recording, and was surprised at how many things we connect on!

    Dr. Frieda Wiley is a licensed pharmacist-turned-freelance medical writer and medical journalist. She has written for numerous organizations, including pharmaceutical corporations, the National Institutes of Health, and O, The Oprah Magazine. She also wrote a health column for WebMD.

    Frieda has been writing ever since she can remember, winning awards for her writing since the first grade, and considers herself a writer first and a scientist second.

    She accidentally “fell” into technical writing after college, while working as a chemist for an aerospace company whose main customer was the United States Navy. In that role, writing typically meant drafting a lab report, drawing up work orders, or tweaking a standard operating procedure. A few years later, her path became clear when she published her first magazine article and some marketing materials while still in pharmacy school.

    Today, Frieda draws from her diverse professional experiences in chemistry, the pharmaceutical industry, and pharmacy practice to produce content in plain language as well as in complex jargon for scientific and medical professionals. She enjoys her work deeply and is committed to serve by crafting meaningful content that engages readers.

Informative and knowledgeable podcast

I love listening to Dr Marina. She has very interesting and informative guests. Her own knowledge is outstanding.
Despite being a traditionally trained PharmD, I have become very open to incorporating a holistic integrative Eastern medicine approach as well to benefit patients.
Keep up the great content.
