    #41 Is Self-healing Possible with Dr. Elizabeth Hughes, MD

    #41 Is Self-healing Possible with Dr. Elizabeth Hughes, MD

    Today, we are going to talk about self-healing. As you all know, in today’s world and ways of medications, a lot of people are being programmed that we need to take this and that. That we need to maintain this kind of medication to heal our bodies. There are so many products and commercials right now which lead us to forget that our body does heal on its own. That the human body has a natural ability to repair itself.
    What we talked about: 
    7:33 Self-healing is the process of your body putting yourself back together. And there are things that we do that we don’t realized is important to our self-healing.  9:46 All our body parts do self-healing even our solid organs that you think aren’t changeable like your bones, liver even your brains they move and regenerate all the time  10:27 The reason why the body gets sick while it’s healing itself 18:00 Drugs are very very big business- billions and dollars in each individual’s medication 22:44 Surgery and medication goes hand-in-hand to your self-healing. You don’t have to give-up medicines, you don’t have to give up your doctors, but you will be much healthier and everything you do will work better if you start working on your own self-healing 23:28 The practice of self-healing 27:54 Being bored is very important to your self-healing 32:18 There’s a big misconception where when doctor talks about self-healing, somehow, the patients expect the doctor to do the self-healing for them.  34:15 Find a way to bring the feeling of feeling healthy back to being something that you do regularly to start the journey of your own self-healing  Visit thelegaldrugdealer.com for the show notes.

    Solo Episode- COVID-19 Vaccines Distribution with Marilena Grittani

    Solo Episode- COVID-19 Vaccines Distribution with Marilena Grittani

    Today, we are going to talk about COVID-19 vaccine distributions and the problems along with them. As you all know, the vaccines were already approved during the Holiday season last December 2020 and the distribution has already started. However, based on my experience, there are some lapses about it and I wanted to talk to you about that.
    What you will learn from this episode:
    -Vaccines need to be frozen throughout the process of distribution. And the government needs to provide all of the equipment for that.
    -There is great communication between the government and pharmaceutical companies during the vaccine development but lacks it during the distribution.
    -Government and militaries can do so much more to help the process of distribution and implement vaccination much easier.
