    Part 6: Close Up Radio Welcomes Back Dr. Vatsala Sastry

    in Medicine

    Brooksville, FL - Dr. Sastry was inspired to become an infectious diseases doctor so she could help people live longer lives free of pain and diseases. She emphasizes how a simple vaccine or drug could mean a lifetime of freedom from illnesses. Infections can be absolutely cured with a proper diagnosis and her life- long mission is being able to help patients live healthy and successful lives.
    Today, she says we are much more equipped to fight COVID-19 should there be a surge because of the number of people who have gotten vaccinated and boosted. In fact, unvaccinated people still face the most risk from COVID-19. She stresses how we should stay up to date on our vaccines and precautions they should take based on their health history and risk tolerance.  Vaccine boosters targeted to combat the omicron subvariants and new vaccines are arriving soon and be widely available.
    Other infectious diseases are looming. For instance, a global outbreak of mosquito diseases such as malaria and west Nile virus are of huge concern The common diseases that are spread through a mosquito bite are Malaria, West Nile, and Zike. With global temperatures rising, ecosystems shifting and mosquitos are spreading into new places formerly unwelcoming to their species, spreading malaria, West Nile virus, and dengue.
    According to studies, over half of all known infectious diseases have been even made worse by climate change a dire consequence of human activities like deforestation. It’s critical we cut greenhouse gas emissions not only to decrease the spread and gravity of infectious diseases but for the health and longevity of our planet. Research supports by staggering numbers that climate hazards like heat waves, droughts, and ocean warming, are all linked to infectious diseases. We are being crippled by the incumbrance of these deadly diseases and every one of us is at risk.

    The Rock & Roll Shrink Radio Show Ep. 136 The Damage Done-Gateways to Addiction

    in Psychology

    In the last few days, I ran across a particular post on social media, about addiction.
    It was: “How loss of hope, alienation and lack of community contribute to addiction”, a Facebook post about a TED talk which is connected to the somewhat well-known experiment about mice addicted to heroin, and how socialization saved them.
    This post touches on a greater point that we’d like to discuss tonight.
    One way, but by no means the only way, is by validating the notion of such things as “gateway drugs,” which is a myth long ago debunked. There is no such thing.
    Tonight, we want to talk about the very beginnings of the path of addiction, and how there are things we can choose to do as individuals and as a society, to contribute to breaking that cycle.
    Unintentionally, today also happens to be National Sober Day, which was created in 2019 by Real Aligned Women, a self-identified “sisterhood for sobriety,” The initiative is also sponsored by the substance abuse and mental health services administration (SAMHSA). It is to celebrate sobriety and encourage awareness of addiction issues.
    Tonight, we will discuss:
    The Original Referenced Article/Post The Reality of the Roots of Addiction & Avoidant Coping Behaviors Therapy, Counterpoints and Critiques Conclusions, Closing Remarks, & Final Suggestions We'll start off the evening with some topic-relevant Classic Rock played by Dr. Mathis, followed by Classic Rock trivia in "The Rock & Roll Shrink Recalls," followed by our topic discussion.

    Why You Are Some Piece of Work with Philosophical Writer Robert Hamady

    in Social Sciences

    “Consciousness is a biological process like digestion.” says today's special guest, philosophical writer Robert Hamady in his thought-provoking book, a guide to self-revelation and self-appreciation, You Are Some Piece of Work.He was inspired to write this book after watching his father succumb to a brain tumor and coming to the realization that we don't produce our actions even though we may be certain that we do.
    After listening to Robert you may find yourself questioning what you know about yourself and marveling at your average day.
    You Are Some Piece of Work is a concise read on the supremacy of the brain vis-à-vis the mind. He breaks down six compelling neurological studies that indicate it is our brains--and not our will--that produces our actions.
    Robert Hamady is a philosophical writer with a particular interest in consciousnes. He is a lawyer and strategic planner with a degree in philosophy. His other works include In Search of the Elusive “I”, The Other Virtual You and Groceryman.
