Community Radio in Crisis
Dr Kokayi and Faybiene air their final Global Medicine Review program (an eight year stretch) and Dr Kokayi takes issue with the direction that the station is moving and what this means for the listening audience. Dr Kokayi’s and Dr Ali’s combined greater than sixty years of clinical experience doing integrative medicine was placed at the 11PM hour with both shows being narrowed down to thirty minutes as part of an arrangement to bring Gary Null back to the noon time hour five days a week. The program is interrupted by station management because of the nature of Dr Kokayi’s remarks but Dr Kokayi convinces management that he and Faybiene should be allowed to finish their program. During this interlude Dr Kokayi learns from Program Director Tony Bates that he came to New York with the intention of bringing Gary Null back on the air. Callers’ comments and farewells are heard for the second half of the program and Faybiene shares two poems.

Energetic Healing with Dr Bengston
Dr Kokayi interviews Dr William F Bengston, author of the Energy Cure. Drawing on his 30 years of rigorous research, unbelievable results, and mind-bending questions, Bengston challenges us to totally rethink what we believe about our ability to heal. His backround as a statistician has helped him to create impeccable research models that have yielded results in the area of energetic healing and cancer that challenge closely held premises of Western medical science. Dr Kokayi and Dr Bengston take this discussion to a very interesting place from which you must draw your own conclusions. Check out bengstonresearch.com

Cutting Edge Biochemical Assessments for the Nervous, Endocrine and Immune Systems with Dr. Eileen Marie Wright
Dr. Kokayi interviews Dr. Eileen Marie Wright, of Neuroscience Inc,. on the importance of laboratory work that is looking to establish guidelines for corrective measures that can be taken with nutrients and phyto nutrients. Dr. Wright is a physician with a conventional board certification in emergency medicine but she also has extensive training in metabolic and nutritional medicine, hormone therapies, Ayurvedic medicine as well as many other alternative and complementary modalities. The interplay of the immune, endocrine and nervous systems is discussed with a new look at their functional interaction. Although from a conventional perspective each of these systems is observed independently the interplay that their biochemical substrates can have on each other is being brought out more clearly thru the work of Neuroscience Inc. This cutting edge lab is able to provide doctors with functional measurements of somatic signals like cytokines which help to create an interplay between these systems which were previously looked at separately. The same cytokines my affect immunity as much as they do psychological states. More information on Neuroscience Inc. can be found at www.neurorelief.com.

Dr. Kokayi interviews Dr. Larry Malerba on his new book “Green Medicine”. Dr. Malerba is a distinguished practitioner, educator and leader in the field of holistic medicine for more than 20 years. His book “Green Medicine” challenges the assumptions of general health care with regard to the allopathic biochemical approach to healthcare. The approaches of orthodox allopathic medicine and alternative paradigms of healing are compared and contrasted throughout the book and some of this is discussed in the interview. Dr Malerba shares some case histories to highlight the value of other medical paradigms. Dr Malerba’s work clearly helps to establish the role that non allopathic therapies could and should be playing in the general health care of the population.

From Slavery, to Petroleum, to Earth Energy
Blaine Pope, who holds a PhD and Master’s from Field and Graduate University in the field of human and organizational systems looks at the progression of American society with respect to energy consumption…from slavery, to petroleum consumption, and a look at the movement toward earth based technologies. The cost of our dependence on petroleum is clearly too high with respect to the impact on health and the environment. From plastics to gasoline, every phase of our lives are touched by petroleum. People in lower socioeconomic communities are more likely to suffer more from the largely unrecognized affects of petroleum because of their proximity to industrial complexes.

Community Health and Development within an African Cultural Paradigm
Dr. Kokayi interviews Sister Kwayera Archer-Cunningham, founding president and chief executive officer of the Ifetayo Cultural Arts Academy. Ifetayo’s success at creating a community based organization that not only gives younger people skills but helps to reestablish their cultural identity is highlighted. Ifetayo has been able to overcome many of the problems that plaque organizations in resource poor communities. With almost twenty years of operation Ifetayo has drawn on traditional African community and and spiritual values and cultural technologies to lay the foundation for an organization that has had to offer no apologies for its orientation but yet has been able to successfully garner resources from the non profit world as well as setting up other programs in and out of the United States; Chicago, Brazil, Senegal, Ehtiopia, Jamaica, and South Africa.

GMR March 10th, 2010
I’m going to attempt to cover a lot of ground leading into our topic and guest today. We are going to look at medicine within a physics framework in order to illuminate more clearly an ever growing group of therapies which rely on aspect of life that functions more by the rules of quantum mechanics than classical physics. Basicly I’m speaking about consciousness and the role of mind in creating disease and bringing about restoration of health. Lets keep in mind that the mechanistic model of life and medicine was erected on the edifice of Newton’s Principia published in 1687. A lot has happened since then and a lot was going on during Newton’s time but this was the best model that the European intelligencia could come up with at that time. Out of this understanding The West developed the idea that mind and matter are separate and for a while that they could not influence each other. Moreover things exist independently of each other. Remember that all models of reality are approximations, an ultimately fall short. These models when agreed upon can set up an energy field that can make it hard for people to function outside of these commonly accepted realities. For instance when many of us develop a named disease like cancer there are certain shared perceptions that we have about what it means to have cancer which are invariably reinforced by health practitioners. Now your body is a solid object and adheres to the rules that govern Newtonian universe but you are also a quantum object and are subject to a set of rules that work in a quantum universe. These rules of course are in place even if you don’t know them. If you walk in front of a speeding truck what’s going to happen to your body. But what comes into play when a patient has metastatic cancer throughout their body and goes into complete remission? We call something miraculous because it does not conform to our shared notions of reality and what should be possible. When you get down to the subatomic level our need to define objects or particles creates some interesting results. We can not track the momentum and the position of a particle. If we observe one we lose the other. This is totally confounding to the left brain which is a linear processor. In quantum physics objects are more like probabilities or possibility waves. And here is the crux of it. At the quantum level our need to create the particle, to measure it, collapses the wave function.

Plant diet recipes and rational with Nathalie Thandiwe
Guest: Nathalie Thandiwe Book: The Yummi Cookbook: Healthy, Delicious, Affordable Food without Meat, Dairy, Wheat or Soy & Nut Free I think during my third year of medical school I realized I could not be a mainstream doctor. I watched the treatment that people received in the hospital and not that it was bad but as a student we were required to take a history and physical from many patients on the wards. I realized that the pharmaceutical prescriptions being given by well meaning doctors were not really going to address the problems that people had. When I looked into psychiatry and spent my summer after my first year in medical school at a community health center I became alarmed at the drugs being prescribed. I voiced this to the head psychiatrist at this clinic in New Haven who told me that I was a fool for not wanting to get on the drug bandwagon. I don’t remember what my reaction was at the time but I guess you could say that I was more disturbed by what I saw happening in the clinic than his comments to me. I was a vegan during my medical school years and many years after. And of course through that filter all of my patients appeared to be suffering from the effects of meat eating and the toxic chemicals that were added to the food. I was a vegan for about 22 years. Along the way I realized some things about my own diet that were problematic for both myself and my family. My motivation to maintain this dietary approach had been sustained because most of what I was seeing in the hospital and private practice had to with bodies being destroyed by what was going in the mouth and indeed what was not coming out. When I expanded this model to include spirit, mind, and mechanism I began to feel like I was on the right track although I had to go outside of modern medicine for diagnostic techniques and therapeutics. While I was learning other healing arts the food industry was changing even more. I began to lose my motivation for a vegan diet which truth be told was largely soy based. I also had watched the American public shift to a largely carbohydrate based diet with an emphasis on low fat. With this I have witnessed the devastating consequences with respect to the increasing incidence of obesity and diabetes. I have witnessed a charade being carried on about cholesterol and became aware of the food and pharmaceutical industry’s role in coopting the medical profession to push an agenda that has more to do with profit

On the Ground in Haiti: Two Weeks after the Earthquake
Dr Kokayi has the opportunity to interview two doctors who have just returned from Haiti earlier in the morning after being part of relief efforts for over the last seven days. Dr Henry Paul a nephrologist is Hatian born and Dr William Lois a surgeon is Cuban born. Both have practices here in the NY area and Dr Paul is president of the NY chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Haitians (noahny.org). Both share their impressions about the devastation taking place there and the field hospital that they were a part of establishing. Both doctors along with Dr Kokayi’s long time friend Dr Jonel Daphnus, also a guest for this program, are preparing to return to Haiti next week. All three doctors are looking to a future in which massive efforts will be needed to bring some level of restoration to a land where people are living under sheets tied to four poles with a rainy season just a couple of months away. There account is emotionally provoking an informative. Callers also shared comments and questions. Well the first of two earthquakes in Haiti was just over two weeks ago (I’m including the earthquake that was greater than 6.0 on the Richter scale that occurred several days later as the second quake…too strong for an after shock) ….so we have witnessed the outpouring of support to the Haitian people as well as comments from some of America’s more ignorant from suggestions that this was God’s wrath to we should not give these people anymore AID because poverty still exists so they re not capable of being helped to the fact that given the proximity of the ocean they should just go fishing for food. But by and large Americans and corporations of all ilks are stepping up. Verizon wireless customers have donated 7.82 million which stand stands atop the list of contributors that I have to 100,000 from the Shell Oil company. Most of these donations have gone to organizations like the American red cross, doctors without borders, Save the children, and Partners in Health. But you can also check out some local organization in the New Yorkarea. I have posted two suggested by one of our guests ..the Haitian Woman For Haitian Refugees and MUDHA (Movement of Dominican Haitian Women…you can find more information at Globalmedicinereview.com. Countries the world over have been sending aid and rescue teams to Haiti. We would like to think that at these times humanity shows its best face. In a moment we will her

The Double Helix of Time: A Tool for a Paradigm Shift
Today we have the interesting task of trying to create a picture of a four dimensional reality that you can appreciate on these airways. I have an able guest…a professor of some thirty years but let me set the stage. The question we have to ask ourselves in 2010 is whether our problems on a global level have outpaced our ability to solve them. Western culture the dominant culture on the planet has taken the world in a direction that brings into question whether this wave of humanity can survive to 2100. While many of us are inspired by ancient an indigenous cultures the larger mainstream seems to be moving in a headlong course that guarantees an acceleration of cataclysmic event that will further destabilize human life. The machine can’t slow itself down whether its global warming or need to maintain global dominance. No sooner that do we create one solution perhaps in the form of an alliance with a political regime or inventions that are the hallmark of western civilization like the atomic age do we create a series of problems of increasing complexity that will have to be confronted down the road. You don’t have to be too old to see the similarities between Viet nam and AFghanastan.. The same is true for our own development. Any one who has spent time with themselves or undergone psychotherapy will be a witness to how certain situations will repeat themselves over and over in our lives until we have gained mastery. So while humanity struggles to evolve and not repeat itself from the individual to larger societal aggregates many of us can sense that something is profoundly wrong with the trajectory that the world is headed in. But we struggle because we don’t have a conceptual model that will allow us to grasp what is happening and at the same time point the way for action. In the West we don’t have and no longer believe in oracular systems as a way to understand the will of the unseen hand that shapes things. Moreover as I pointed out last week our individual everyday work is not linked metaphorically or technically to larger universal principles or realities which if further isolating and stunting to the imagination. For the most part we are educated to perform in our little boxes, doctor, teacher , engineer etc. When we try to step outside of our box we may be rewarded, punished, exalted, or depressed or perhaps even all of these at once or in different times. I want to share something that our gues
