Life is full of surprises! Some good and some bad.

There is an old Daoist saying, “The only constant in the Universe is change.”

Clearly, it is essential that we all get very good at changing directions in life. If changing directions doesn’t make our lives better then we may need to take an even bigger risk and start from scratch.

In this episode, Anthony Sanna talks with Michael Smith about starting over and rebuilding your life. Unlike our usual geek-out session on all things healthy, in this conversation, we talk about how to face hard times with courage, patience, and compassion.

Rebuilding your life may be just the adventure you need to really learn about who you really are.

Science is amazing!

Nothing has helped humanity move ahead in our evolution than science. We are lucky to be able to say that we are the recipients of the most rigorously tested, precise and powerful medications.

Unfortunately, we are also the unwitting lab rats in the greatest experiment in all of history. Can the extensive use of powerful drugs with multiple and unpredictable side-effects actually bring about long-term positive outcomes?

So far the number three killer of patients in the USA is iatrogenic death – or death by medical treatment. These deaths are profoundly unreported or misreported. It is more likely that the standard model of care is the number one killer as well.

In this conversation, Anthony Sanna talks with Michael Smith about the realities of being a patient with chronic health problems in the 21st Century.

We are respectful of the modern system of health care but are also aware that most people who are treated with the pharma-Surgical Model will eventually need to be treated for the side effects or limited effects of their drugs.

What if we embrace a new model of care? If a person needs Pharma-Surgical intervention, thank God we have that available. Once that person is stable and ready to heal on a deeper level, they would be guided through a process of discovering what is at the root of their medical condition.
