Newstream Summary

September 9, 2014

Most of us hope to live long, healthy lives. Well, we're indeed living longer, but we're not necessarily living better. Chronic health problems like cancer, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis and others plague about half of all American adults.

The conventional way to address debilitating health problems is through medications and surgery, but an impersonal and costly healthcare industry that does little more than manage chronic illness has more and more of us turning to natural medicine and therapies for help. We're beginning to wake up to the relationship between how we're living and how our bodies are functioning. Maybe, more of us are realizing, the answers to our problems lie in the natural world.

Food, movement, sleep, relationships, work, stress reduction, attitude and outlook—these factors, we're learning, play more than a supporting role in the overall health of our bodies. They may in fact be the missing ingredients in the healing process.

About 38 percent of American adults now use some form of complementary and alternative medicine, like nutrition, supplements, herbs, acupuncture, yoga, meditation, energy medicine, and the like.

This Newstream explores a variety of natural approaches to caring for the body from natural ways to keep cancer at bay to the macrobiotic diet, from ways to age youthfully and lose weight naturally while also developing body compassion

And I look at a natural way to release both tension and traumatic memories

and emotions stored in the body in a video dispatch on TRE (Tension- and Trauma-Releasing Exercises).

Global health and wellness sales are estimated to hit a record high of 1 trillion dollars by 2017, and there's a reason why. Have a look.

Keeping Cancer at Bay

February 10, 2014

In Keeping Cancer at Bay, I talk with Oriental Medicine Doctor and Licensed Acupuncturist Dr. Nalini Chilkov, an authority in the field of cancer care and integrative cancer care. She shares her thoughts on the role of inflammation and environmental toxins in cancer as well as how to overcome our genetic predispositions.

Dr. Chilkov describes how to follow an anti-inflammatory diet, super foods that prevent cancer, the importance of an organic diet, the benefits of green tea and medicinal herbs, the dangers of too much sugar, the most important supplements to consume daily, how to reduce environmental toxins in our homes and workspaces, and the importance of human connection.June 16, 2014

Unmanned aerial vehicles, commonly referred to as UAVs or drones, became part of our conversations as the military increased their use during the conflicts in Iraq and Afganistan. 

Now drones are increasingly being used for work in law enforcement. Dozens of US police forces have applied to the FAA for UAV permits. As of August 2013, commercial unmanned aerial system (UAS) licenses were granted on a case-by-case basis.

Drones have been developed for aerial surveying of crops, filmmaking, search and rescue, pipeline inspections, medical delivery to remote areas and more. Potential for abuse from aerial surveillance, however, abounds. In February 2013, Seattle Mayor Michael McGinn scrapped the Seattle Police Department's plan to deploy UAVs in response to protests.

The future of daily drones is really just around the corner. What are our rights when a drone flies over our home? Who will protect those rights? When Amazon delivers a package by drone, how does that impact your neighbors rights? 

This Newstream will explore the robots of the air that will soon be right over your head: Domestic Drones.
