Sheri Winston, a celebrated sexuality teacher, award-winning author and medical professional, returned to the program. She and Dr. Diana discussed getting in the mood. A woman’s desire requires engaging her mind and psyche as much as engorging her body parts. Mindfulness helps reconnect the mind with the body’s sensations. When women learn to connect bodily arousal and emotional pleasure, arousal is increased. Using a vibrator, looking at erotica, masturbating, or fantasizing about a great sexual experience can all help with getting in the mood! Sheri asks an important question: How much pleasure can I experience on the journey? Her website is www.IntimateArtsCenter.com where you will discover more about her sexuality trainings – and her book “Succulent Sex Craft.”
Part I: D. Anthony Evans, Train 2 Live
D. Anthony Evans knows what it takes to face down life’s biggest challenges and beat them. A child of a single mom, he was born with Neurofibromatosis (NF) a rare genetic condition where dangerous tumors grow on nerve tissue. Often benign, they can become malignant, resulting in Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumors (MPNST), an aggressive form of cancer. In 2012, D. was diagnosed with MPNST. Nine life-or-death surgeries risking paralysis within eleven months followed as doctors removed 325 tumors, one of them over two pounds. D. was given six months to live. Survival rates are low, but there are those who survive. It has been over four years.

In episode 91 David Crowe interviews Alan Cassels, a Canadian drug policy researcher at the University of Victoria, who has authored several books, and many papers and also television documentaries. He is very interested in the promotion of drugs, particularly what he calls Selling Sickness or Disease Mongering, which happens when a drug companies, and people influenced by them, create a new illness, or promote greater ‘awareness’ of a minor condition, by exaggerating its impact, and the effectiveness of the drugs that you’re likely to be prescribed if you “see your doctor” as illness advertisements always tell you to do.
Alan believes in the power of Evidence Based Medicine, and therefore supports the Cochrane Institute, which is where one of my previous guests, Peter Gotzsche works. While not perfect, it is not so influenced by the pharmaceutical industry, and therefore produces relatively unbiased recommendations.

Segment 3: Live call-ins – Why Bernie/why Hillary?
Whom do you support for the Democratic nominee for president, and how civil are you prepared to be about it. The peoples email Network reminds us “let us not be like the haters on the Republican side. Anyone who tries to mud wrestle with Trump, using insults and gratuitous name calling will lose. He can be attacked on the issues, but most effectively if we do not stoop to his level. Those who respond to such tactics will never be won over by our side. Is it too early to argue for a joint ticket, especially after the blowout yesterday in SC? Sanders must prove himself by winning a bunch of states. Only then can we argue that an alliance between him and Hillary is required for victory.”
Investigative journalist and columnist, Wayne Madsen, discussed the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and the unusual circumstances, including no investigation of the death, which took place at a hunting party at a Bohemian Grove ranch with Satanist decorations.

Every parent desires only the best for their children, which is why most parents insist that their children, primarily girls but now also boys, receive the three-shot series of HPV vaccines. Parents do this because there is the unchallenged assumptions that vaccine public mandates and physician recommendations are founded upon sound scientific and medical principles of safety and efficacy. This is not only true for the HPV vaccines—Merck’s Gardasil and Glaxo’s Cervarix—but for all childhood vaccines. Unfortunately, there has been very little effective popular opposition to the vaccination regime except by those parents who have witnessed these vaccines’ devastation upon their children’s developing brains and immune systems. The rate of autism in the US has now risen to 1 in 68. Yet at the same time parents are repeatedly told it is not the vaccines; the industrial food industry repeatedly tells us it is not the GMOs and toxic pesticides such as glyphosate; and the fossil fuel multinationals repeatedly tell us it is not the heavy metals spewing into the atmosphere from their plants. Rather we are consistently told that the medical profession doesn’t harm children. Vaccines save lives. Fortunately more and more people are awakening to these lies. Although there are a growing number of parents fighting the medical establishment, in some cases even winning, they nevertheless have to live with an injured child or teenager, frequently for the remainder of their child’s life. The very federal agencies that support an ever-increasing vaccination schedule—the CDC, HHS, FDA and Surgeon General—and the entire private medical establishment and physicians are complicit in a mutual denial that vaccine scientific review and regulation require a vast systemic overhaul before any vaccine should be pronounced safe and effective before entering the market.
