In preparation for exploring the more complex financial and legal issues involved in Healthcare this episode aims to remind the listeners that healthcare is not only about maintaining a high Quality of Life, it is also a complex social issue continuing to evolve by building innovative solutions for individuals to have control in their treatment and self care options.
Frank and Danielle go over Frank About Health's ten most impactful episodes. The two talk about different methods that have helped them over their twelve year friendship. Danielle talks about what medication and alternatives have helped her get through her seizures. Danielle talks about her book that she is writing and who she plans on reaching out to, to further the content she will cover. Both talk about work they are involved in and the response that has followed, both from listeners and speakers.
Frank goes into detail about the connections with PTSD and seizures. Frank continues to explain how paying close attention to a mental or physical disorder as its symptoms directly affect an individual's life. He says how if you do live with such a disorder you have to own it, because it is part of the individual. Frank talks about what health truly is. The two talk about the fragmented world that we live in as a result of COVID-19.
Frank brings up the topic of holistic medicines. He reminds the viewers of an individual that he knew who used holistic medicine while living with cancer. Danielle and Frank talk about different ways of awareness and different methods of going about treatment and how the differences should be looked at from multiple angles. Frank advises those to take ownership of their medical care and take responsibility for it because it directly affects the individual.
Frank summarizes their time on the show and starts to talk about the future of Frank About Health. Frank continues to bring to light how covid is most susceptible to the children of this country as they cannot receive the vaccination just yet. When talking about the future of the show Frank gives insight to next week's show and what it will look like. Danielle adds that the two will be in touch with another interesting guest that has ties to the financial side to health care and much more.
00:00:38.460 --> 00:00:47.070 Frank R. Harrison: hey everybody and welcome to a very special retrospective episode of frank about health, we have done 10 episodes thus far.
00:00:47.670 --> 00:00:57.240 Frank R. Harrison: That have really tried to send home the message to everyone out there that we are in charge of our own health care that's what i've been trying to be frank about.
00:00:57.810 --> 00:01:01.050 Frank R. Harrison: i'm trying to be direct and open and honest and transparent.
00:01:01.650 --> 00:01:11.940 Frank R. Harrison: about all the specific health care issues that are out there were many people just are not getting the best or the most accurate information on how to find either the proper treatment.
00:01:12.300 --> 00:01:19.530 Frank R. Harrison: The proper financing the proper practitioners to help treat your health care or whatever the circumstances may be.
00:01:20.220 --> 00:01:34.080 Frank R. Harrison: When I began this show five years ago on talk radio and my see it was a radio only show, at the time when I was really advocating for fellow epileptic patients, like my guest today Danielle swanson who's been here before.
00:01:34.560 --> 00:01:52.470 Frank R. Harrison: And she to shares the same diagnosis of living with epilepsy, and we were both at a time when we met looking for different solutions on how to treat that then after taking a hiatus and other commitments that I had to go through in my own personal life we all went through.
00:01:54.030 --> 00:02:00.570 Frank R. Harrison: And that just awakened me to come back and do this show now with social media of zoom and Facebook live.
00:02:01.200 --> 00:02:06.840 Frank R. Harrison: To be able to make all of us aware about the various messages that we receive every day.
00:02:07.260 --> 00:02:17.130 Frank R. Harrison: from government from health officials from even your own family and friends and there's just so much misinformation out there, that I knew it was time to come back with this show.
00:02:17.520 --> 00:02:27.810 Frank R. Harrison: To really address all of the issues around coven 19 but to continue focusing on epilepsy, and to focus on other ailments that continue to exist.
00:02:28.410 --> 00:02:38.700 Frank R. Harrison: Down today's show we're going to cover Danielle and I the 10 episodes that were most impactful to my listeners out there and then i've already received a lot of positive feedback.
00:02:39.030 --> 00:02:45.090 Frank R. Harrison: from some of you out there that have listened that have wrote to me had had serious questions and wanted some follow ups.
00:02:45.480 --> 00:02:52.860 Frank R. Harrison: So we'll talk about some of the guests that we've had during the next hour we'll talk about some of the lessons learned that each of them had presented.
00:02:53.340 --> 00:03:01.830 Frank R. Harrison: And we'll also talk about how you out there can look for the solutions that you are, you know I don't want to say desperately seeking but are definitely.
00:03:02.430 --> 00:03:12.000 Frank R. Harrison: Looking for additional information than you're already receiving and I hope that i've been frank enough with you, these last 12 weeks to be able to provide insights.
00:03:12.630 --> 00:03:20.580 Frank R. Harrison: So Danielle, thank you for coming back, I wanted to talk about the two episodes we did, obviously we were frank about epilepsy and episode one.
00:03:20.940 --> 00:03:34.170 Frank R. Harrison: And then we were frank about narcissism several weeks later, and that in itself was a big boon for all of the messages that i've been trying to give the listeners out there, so welcome back and just tell me what you've experienced when we've been doing the show together.
00:03:35.010 --> 00:03:41.160 Danielle Swanson: i've had a lot of fun doing the show, I think that, like you said it's really important to be more and more vocal about.
00:03:42.090 --> 00:03:52.620 Danielle Swanson: All of these issues because there is so much misinformation out there, and you know we all, everyone already sees things through their own rose colored glasses writer, maybe, maybe they're blue colored or whatever.
00:03:52.980 --> 00:03:53.130 But.
00:03:55.110 --> 00:03:55.530 Danielle Swanson: um.
00:03:56.550 --> 00:04:10.740 Danielle Swanson: yeah I think it's been great to, especially when we can hear firsthand experiences and testimonies and people who've done their research, I personally really appreciate that really have have looked up their own sources.
00:04:12.960 --> 00:04:22.800 Danielle Swanson: yeah I think it's really helpful to to have those stories to have those conversations kind of getting more real and more honest more direct about all these issues rather than you know.
00:04:23.520 --> 00:04:28.440 Danielle Swanson: Sweeping them under the rug or just kind of skirting around issues or pretending they don't exist kind of.
00:04:30.030 --> 00:04:38.280 Danielle Swanson: yeah I think it's it's good to be much more open about it yeah so I really appreciate that you you've been back on this show getting the ball rolling again.
00:04:38.700 --> 00:04:47.880 Frank R. Harrison: Well, you were my first guest, the first time I did the show, and you were a you phoned in all the way from Boston and here you are in your home in Boston where you were able to zoom and.
00:04:48.150 --> 00:04:57.600 Frank R. Harrison: Do the first show literally 12 weeks ago, but the thing that you and I, when we first met 12 years ago isn't that funny run the 12th episode and we met 12 years ago.
00:04:57.990 --> 00:05:11.700 Frank R. Harrison: That we were looking for better medication and you yourself spoke about how you've been able to find help with medical cannabis, that was the big ticket item that we spoke about on our episode, do you want to share any more insights you've learned since then.
00:05:12.420 --> 00:05:17.700 Danielle Swanson: yeah I mean I i've, as you know, i've had seizures for about 23 years now.
00:05:20.310 --> 00:05:28.260 Danielle Swanson: So i've it's been a long journey of of trying alternatives right I think i've spoken briefly, maybe when you did this show earlier like five years ago.
00:05:28.890 --> 00:05:40.410 Danielle Swanson: I tried yoga and meditation which helped me a lot, it helps me get off phenobarbital, which is what I was on originally it was one of the only medications that worked, which is also a barbiturates so they try not to describe it.
00:05:41.460 --> 00:05:42.930 Frank R. Harrison: Exactly prescribe it.
00:05:44.790 --> 00:05:53.940 Danielle Swanson: So yeah doing doing finding alternatives has been helpful for me, you know first with the the yoga and meditation and more recently with the medical marijuana I.
00:05:54.690 --> 00:06:05.220 Danielle Swanson: I have been experimenting with only taking it at night before bed the sort of sleepy kind that that makes you more relaxed and I sleep so well when I take that.
00:06:05.700 --> 00:06:11.220 Danielle Swanson: And so that and I haven't had as many seizures when I when I take it consistently, I have noticed that.
00:06:11.820 --> 00:06:29.730 Danielle Swanson: However, I have noticed lately sometimes during the day following that I do experience some anxiety I don't know if that's medical marijuana related or if that's just a different like mental health issue, but I just yeah I like to get both sides of the story, you know express both sides.
00:06:29.880 --> 00:06:40.830 Frank R. Harrison: But, in essence, you are kind of doing both sides of the story, because you're still taking traditional epilepsy medication, while doing the marijuana and do you find that your medication, which I think is kept bro correct is that helping them.
00:06:41.670 --> 00:06:42.510 And then pat.
00:06:43.770 --> 00:06:53.040 Danielle Swanson: Someone to yeah they're yeah they're still helpful, but by no means perfect I think there's still probably long way to go in the field of epilepsy and brain science, but.
00:06:54.150 --> 00:06:59.640 Danielle Swanson: Yes, the combination seems to be helpful, you know, having added the cannabis to.
00:07:00.750 --> 00:07:01.980 Danielle Swanson: Yes, the recipe.
00:07:03.000 --> 00:07:06.900 Frank R. Harrison: When we did that show you were working on a book, are you still working on that book right now.
00:07:07.170 --> 00:07:13.830 Danielle Swanson: yeah i've written about 200 pages, which is most of the book my my next phase is to reach out to some.
00:07:14.190 --> 00:07:21.750 Danielle Swanson: You know, medical experts and doctors and if I, if I can like, if I can fit that in this book, obviously with coven 19 I don't want to.
00:07:22.170 --> 00:07:30.150 Danielle Swanson: overwhelm the medical community more than they already are, so I may leave that for like another book or a follow up new edition, but.
00:07:30.960 --> 00:07:44.670 Danielle Swanson: yeah my next step is to edit what I have and add a Frequently Asked Questions section, because I have reached out to boy had a few people just asking whether they know about epilepsy or have any questions and yes.
00:07:45.270 --> 00:07:52.830 Danielle Swanson: I intend to create that section, and then I yes should be hopefully reaching out for ways to get that published.
00:07:53.760 --> 00:08:02.970 Frank R. Harrison: Well, you know i'm there for you, if I can help in any way and at the same time, I know how helpful, you were in bringing our special guest on that narcissism show that was a.
00:08:03.510 --> 00:08:13.470 Frank R. Harrison: Mind blowing experience for me to witness the whole testimony that came in from your special guest Janet at the time, but did you want to you know give some more insights into what's going on with her survivors group.
00:08:14.430 --> 00:08:21.300 Danielle Swanson: I actually don't know much about the what they're doing at present, I know they're in contact pretty regularly, I think.
00:08:21.750 --> 00:08:38.340 Danielle Swanson: They all stay in touch they've all become you know very friendly with one another, I think my my our guest right Janet through party, a couple of weeks ago to celebrate their own online event that they had done, I think it was actually right before our the show when Jana came on it was.
00:08:39.390 --> 00:08:45.210 Danielle Swanson: You know she invited all the all the members of the group over I think most of them were able to make it they had food and.
00:08:45.540 --> 00:08:56.760 Danielle Swanson: You know I think there was probably like wine or something to sell because they're celebrating this this great they had they did music and poetry, and things they had all created themselves and have this online party.
00:08:57.870 --> 00:09:01.020 Danielle Swanson: Not online party, the party was afterwards, but the online.
00:09:02.190 --> 00:09:09.690 Danielle Swanson: informational session I guess you'd call it, I don't remember the exact name but yeah they do a lot, a lot of the women are.
00:09:10.740 --> 00:09:24.300 Danielle Swanson: Do this as a women's group in particular, a lot of the women are still in those unhealthy relationships, a lot of times because they have kids and that you know how do you get out of that in such a complex right situation it's hard enough already so.
00:09:25.680 --> 00:09:28.380 Danielle Swanson: um yeah they're doing a lot of work with that.
00:09:29.910 --> 00:09:43.920 Danielle Swanson: i'd have to ask her what what the more recent updates are, but I do know that at least one or two other Members, after hearing the show are interested in maybe talking about it again doing another another follow up show and narcissism.
00:09:43.980 --> 00:09:56.310 Frank R. Harrison: Well, I do remember when I spoke to Janet that day and went through all of this stuff that i'd gotten from that book that I know she read it was the covert passive aggressive narcissist available on amazon.com for those listeners out there.
00:09:57.930 --> 00:10:05.490 Frank R. Harrison: debbie Mirza I think is the author, that the one thing that I noticed is that when she told me the whole story about being a survivor to someone.
00:10:06.030 --> 00:10:23.820 Frank R. Harrison: That actually had her arrested and could potentially kill her even even going forward, I was so gun shy about the idea of even rian coring that video, or rather, it was still audio stream only at the time, but I did not want to expose her to.
00:10:24.870 --> 00:10:31.560 Frank R. Harrison: Her abuser so I definitely do think a follow up show is necessary, I remember saying to her, this is something I could talk about for two episodes.
00:10:32.790 --> 00:10:39.570 Frank R. Harrison: I think you and I already agreed that you know, as I begin the next phase in frank about health, starting with next week's episode.
00:10:40.410 --> 00:10:52.470 Frank R. Harrison: I definitely want to have some follow ups of key guests that have appeared during this first well, and you know I just had so much of a mind blowing experience you know witnessing.
00:10:53.280 --> 00:11:07.770 Frank R. Harrison: firsthand how I am still facing my own narcissistic abusers but able to now cope with them deal with them manage them in certain ways because i'm more alert based on not just the book that I read but also based on janet's testimony so yeah.
00:11:08.910 --> 00:11:17.070 Frank R. Harrison: As soon as she's ready to have a follow up you and I could sit down with her and start planning how that would look, I know, maybe even Members of the survivors group can join in.
00:11:17.640 --> 00:11:25.320 Frank R. Harrison: You know and and really show the positive aspect of surviving something like narcissism now how would anyone if anyone were to ask.
00:11:25.950 --> 00:11:32.700 Frank R. Harrison: How does that tie into epilepsy, well, it really doesn't However, the commonality is the brain, we know that.
00:11:33.420 --> 00:11:38.100 Frank R. Harrison: epilepsy is a function of or is a result of dysfunctional brainwave activity.
00:11:38.610 --> 00:11:50.880 Frank R. Harrison: And we also know that cannabis, in addition to other treatment medications help to try to subdue that activity, but sometimes there can be cross references, based on the stigma of epilepsy that it could be a person who is.
00:11:51.390 --> 00:11:56.310 Frank R. Harrison: mentally ill or a drug addict or whatever and that's not true, however.
00:11:56.760 --> 00:12:07.950 Frank R. Harrison: When you are dealing with the narcissistic personality, where sometimes that's based on traumas that's based on altered brain chemistry that's based on other kinds of traumatic injuries that may have occurred.
00:12:08.580 --> 00:12:24.510 Frank R. Harrison: I do have this belief that narcissistic personalities are probably more prone to having seizure activity if it's triggered by something that actually confronts them or shocks their system down because I know, one of the aspects of narcissism that we talked about.
00:12:25.830 --> 00:12:38.040 Frank R. Harrison: Is that these are people that, based on their previous traumas have really had a hard time and shielding their core self because they're not aware of what their core self is and when they do experience the the exposure.
00:12:38.700 --> 00:12:47.070 Frank R. Harrison: That normally makes them do destructive acts against their targets they sometimes will probably have an actual shutdown breakdown or other kind of.
00:12:47.640 --> 00:12:54.120 Frank R. Harrison: You know traumatic experience when they are found out and that I think is the biggest fear that narcissism a narcissist has.
00:12:54.570 --> 00:13:02.040 Frank R. Harrison: So I just wanted to thank you again for those two episodes because they kind of served as the yin and the Yang of sort of speak of how the brain.
00:13:02.370 --> 00:13:12.030 Frank R. Harrison: can actually take it upon itself to take you wonder during stressful moments who seizure activity or take it out on others, by not being able to own yourself.
00:13:12.270 --> 00:13:23.370 Frank R. Harrison: And therefore projectile that anger out into others and try to own people and manipulate people all for no purpose other than to feel more validated from when you were not as a child or whatever.
00:13:23.910 --> 00:13:31.440 Frank R. Harrison: It looks as though we're about to head into our first break, but I have to tell you again Danny those two shows were from what I heard.
00:13:31.980 --> 00:13:42.450 Frank R. Harrison: me highly streamed, especially the one on narcissism talk radio dot nyc had aired it a couple times in the last few weeks, which I thought was very, very positive and.
00:13:43.050 --> 00:13:46.200 Frank R. Harrison: I think it has even led to other promising shows that i've had since then.
00:13:46.560 --> 00:13:56.070 Frank R. Harrison: And for those of you out there on Facebook live, if you have any comments or questions on the two shows we've just talked about please email me at frank about health 102 at gmail COM.
00:13:56.490 --> 00:13:59.520 Frank R. Harrison: Or you can put your comments in, and I will, when I.
00:14:00.120 --> 00:14:12.150 Frank R. Harrison: rebroadcast it, I will get back to you Okay, so we are on the way to our first break and when we come back, we will talk about three more highly interesting episodes that occurred on frank about health this past couple weeks.
00:14:12.600 --> 00:14:21.480 Frank R. Harrison: And we'll be back right here on talk radio that nyc, so this is frank R Harrison and Danielle swanson going to be right with you in a few thanks for listening.
00:16:34.860 --> 00:16:40.980 Frank R. Harrison: Everybody and welcome again to this special episode this retrospective episode of frank about health.
00:16:41.850 --> 00:16:46.770 Frank R. Harrison: just wanted to let you all know that one of the lessons learned that I know that i've learned throughout the show.
00:16:47.460 --> 00:16:56.370 Frank R. Harrison: is how mental health and becoming your own advocate are critical lessons that you must take away, whatever the episode is about.
00:16:56.790 --> 00:17:01.260 Frank R. Harrison: it's the big takeaway that I come about after I have each guest on the show.
00:17:01.920 --> 00:17:15.480 Frank R. Harrison: I have seen their books their podcasts their their blogs their their social commentary from other walks of works that they work on you know, like if they are professional actors or doctors or lawyers or whatever.
00:17:16.050 --> 00:17:28.500 Frank R. Harrison: And the one thing is that I i'm thinking back right now to the ptsd episode that I covered with my dear friend Solange pillars OTA from Chicago which was, I think episode number three.
00:17:29.040 --> 00:17:41.970 Frank R. Harrison: And it was like my introduction into understanding the brains power over your mental health and at the same time, your focus, while living as much of a carefree or healthy way of life.
00:17:42.570 --> 00:17:52.920 Frank R. Harrison: In post traumatic stress disorder is so complex because we're not talking about your typical war veteran that experienced the Vietnam war or the Afghan War or the Iraq war.
00:17:53.190 --> 00:18:01.290 Frank R. Harrison: That comes back and feels like this the living in it we're talking about someone that had probably had you know, been.
00:18:02.010 --> 00:18:09.660 Frank R. Harrison: sexually harassed as a child or or worse yeah and we're talking about people that have been beaten up domestic violence.
00:18:10.110 --> 00:18:17.940 Frank R. Harrison: We had the example where we were talking about narcissism with Danielle where she faced an abuser which i'm sure gave her ptsd reactions.
00:18:18.450 --> 00:18:26.040 Frank R. Harrison: When you're living life as an epileptic I have had post traumatic reaction say I look at people's behavior and sometimes question it.
00:18:26.400 --> 00:18:33.870 Frank R. Harrison: When it might be some very simple to deal with it's just that, when I have to be aware of my surroundings my inner and outer surroundings.
00:18:34.200 --> 00:18:40.350 Frank R. Harrison: it's unfortunate that one of the side effects of living with epilepsy is having some form of ptsd.
00:18:41.100 --> 00:18:50.460 Frank R. Harrison: The other thing that i've discovered is that while discussing with the Gray about some of the episodes that she's had to go through in her life, we had an episode last week.
00:18:51.030 --> 00:18:59.400 Frank R. Harrison: where she talked about her cardiac care problems that she had to actually use her own mindfulness to get the right treatment at the right time, and she knew, she was having a heart attack.
00:19:00.000 --> 00:19:09.720 Frank R. Harrison: So when I look at those two episodes I start to think no one is really going to tell you, when something is wrong when you're experiencing the symptoms of an actual mental or physical disorder.
00:19:10.140 --> 00:19:16.110 Frank R. Harrison: You have to be very mindful about what your symptoms are when you're living your life doing your job.
00:19:17.460 --> 00:19:23.670 Frank R. Harrison: going for a walk having exercise being with friends and family, you have to also understand that.
00:19:24.120 --> 00:19:32.820 Frank R. Harrison: When you are not eating right when you're not living up to the par with your nutrition, but, whatever your doctor is telling you to do when you go for treatment for a specific disorder.
00:19:33.360 --> 00:19:44.700 Frank R. Harrison: What medications to take maybe you don't have enough financial resources for it sometimes you're left with such fragmented knowledge as to what it is, you can do to deal with a quality of life issue.
00:19:45.210 --> 00:19:56.760 Frank R. Harrison: That what I take away from each episode of frank about health is that when you have a health problem you have to own it as a part of your everyday life, not looking at it as a problem that's going to be solved instantly.
00:19:57.240 --> 00:20:05.160 Frank R. Harrison: It becomes part of your lifestyle choices it becomes part of your career choices it becomes part of the choices of the types of people you want in and out of your life.
00:20:05.790 --> 00:20:16.860 Frank R. Harrison: Because the whole focus here is to keep a balance of life, keep yourself focused of what is going to serve you well, and then you can give back to those that are important in your life.
00:20:17.400 --> 00:20:27.300 Frank R. Harrison: So the ptsd show was very impactful in that way because Solange and I were going back to our high school years where we met and where she learned, I was an epileptic.
00:20:27.660 --> 00:20:36.390 Frank R. Harrison: Because that's where I had my first seizure, but at the same time, where she was telling me experiences that she had as a child that I don't think she specified on the show.
00:20:37.440 --> 00:20:42.900 Frank R. Harrison: But we can say they lead to life lasting issues that she has learned to cope with.
00:20:43.350 --> 00:20:49.620 Frank R. Harrison: and learn to manage, but if it wasn't for the help of good psychiatrist or social worker clinical social worker.
00:20:49.950 --> 00:21:01.320 Frank R. Harrison: or even just a psychoanalyst that would be able to help you live through your demons that unfortunately ptsd brings back over and over and over again through different scenarios, sometimes in your dreams.
00:21:01.920 --> 00:21:17.160 Frank R. Harrison: These are things that I just feel that most people seem to forget now I think one mode of transparency that I have discovered was just our whole nation our worlds experience with coven.
00:21:18.300 --> 00:21:28.260 Frank R. Harrison: If you remember, I did an episode by myself, which type promised i'd never do again, where I actually was just talking about everything from the symptom ology.
00:21:28.770 --> 00:21:41.730 Frank R. Harrison: To the testing the tracing what went on in New York City in 2020 where the whole nation shut down broadway shut down, you know air travel was shut down people were living and working from home zoom was born.
00:21:42.150 --> 00:21:53.340 Frank R. Harrison: You know, we have a life that everybody was neuron bubble, and it just made us forcibly distance from each other on many levels that that in itself would create ptsd for anyone.
00:21:53.820 --> 00:22:03.120 Frank R. Harrison: You know, at the same time to get conflicting information in the media, whether the vaccine was safe or not, whether testing was just a scam.
00:22:03.480 --> 00:22:11.640 Frank R. Harrison: Whether it was you know that it was going to go away quickly or that okay if you're under 12 you're not going to get it, or if you're a senior citizen.
00:22:12.390 --> 00:22:20.610 Frank R. Harrison: You know it's i'm sorry to hear it, you know I mean that's not healthy that's not help that's not that's not healing that's not Community gathering together.
00:22:20.970 --> 00:22:30.000 Frank R. Harrison: to educate each other on something that hadn't been seen in 100 years, so what I tried to make him, you know emphatic during that whole one hour monologue.
00:22:30.420 --> 00:22:38.700 Frank R. Harrison: was how important it was to be mindful that every circumstance is different, depending on your age, depending on if you have a comorbidity.
00:22:39.120 --> 00:22:49.200 Frank R. Harrison: In epilepsy, believe it or not, is not one of the comorbidities tied to epilepsy, I mean i'm sorry to coven 19 but cancer is cardiac problems are.
00:22:49.650 --> 00:23:00.630 Frank R. Harrison: People who have high highly deficient immunity immuno autoimmune symptoms, these are vulnerable targets for the delta variant, which is currently existing.
00:23:01.290 --> 00:23:10.110 Frank R. Harrison: Danielle I just spent about five minutes talking about three episodes and i'm realizing i'm having my model again, so please chime in here, if you have any.
00:23:10.920 --> 00:23:27.450 Danielle Swanson: Say i'm glad you talked about the ptsd and coven 19 on all of it all the things you've mentioned so far, but, in particular with with ptsd and coven 19 I feel like eventually someday when coven 19 let's say, less of a threat, hopefully.
00:23:28.860 --> 00:23:29.730 Danielle Swanson: Gone and she.
00:23:31.440 --> 00:23:38.670 Danielle Swanson: will all be experiencing ptsd in its own way and collectively from this right it's literally I read a post about this, the other day that.
00:23:39.210 --> 00:23:41.340 Danielle Swanson: really hit me I hadn't considered it it's.
00:23:41.910 --> 00:23:54.360 Danielle Swanson: It was saying something about you know the reason we're all feeling, you know anxious and stressed so much now it's like being more forgiving with yourself about that because basically we still are in like a constant state of.
00:23:54.840 --> 00:24:02.850 Danielle Swanson: Having our lives threatened right, we are that's how our body's responding to this, the information that coca nineteen's out there right.
00:24:03.270 --> 00:24:03.510 Frank R. Harrison: Right.
00:24:03.900 --> 00:24:06.930 Danielle Swanson: And I feel like to I don't I know it's not directly.
00:24:08.070 --> 00:24:19.290 Danielle Swanson: Health related but for anyone who's been hearing or reading about the climate change report that just came out I feel like, especially for the younger generations it's even an added layer of.
00:24:20.370 --> 00:24:33.150 Danielle Swanson: stress and anxiety and depression and all sorts of mental health issues, so I don't know if that will fall into the category of ptsd, but it does bring up a whole lot of other health issues, physical, emotional and mental I.
00:24:33.390 --> 00:24:42.840 Frank R. Harrison: foresee that coven 19 in itself is almost like a health ecosystem that is spending its time re educating people on how to live, how to work.
00:24:43.290 --> 00:24:52.500 Frank R. Harrison: How to love, how to just be spiritual how to connect I mean and in itself what i've discovered, is that the younger generations who were born into it practically.
00:24:52.980 --> 00:25:01.950 Frank R. Harrison: are actually pioneers and helping us find ways to explore how to become our own advocate for our disorders, whether it's coven 19 or the life.
00:25:02.490 --> 00:25:11.520 Frank R. Harrison: You know I had mentioned to you separately, that I had a conversation with my one of my nephews about vaccines and he's only 12 years old.
00:25:12.210 --> 00:25:17.700 Frank R. Harrison: And he was giving me more information than I was aware, which I thought was hysterical, but it was reflective.
00:25:18.120 --> 00:25:29.130 Frank R. Harrison: On what you just said, I mean we live in such a fragmented world right now, as a result of coven 19 among other issues like the climate change in itself could be a reflection or a result.
00:25:29.490 --> 00:25:37.200 Frank R. Harrison: Of coven 19 we don't fully know that, but the thing is is, we have to rely on not just our own instincts more so.
00:25:37.500 --> 00:25:47.160 Frank R. Harrison: But we have to rely on the people that we least expect may have any kind of instincts or solutions, and I believe people under the age of 12 probably have more insights.
00:25:47.460 --> 00:25:57.660 Frank R. Harrison: available to them that we have yet to learn, and I do believe that them living their first years of their life during a pandemic they're probably going to be innovators in the near future over.
00:25:58.050 --> 00:26:04.110 Frank R. Harrison: Over whatever is going to be available out there to probably cure diseases like cancer and cardiac problems and.
00:26:04.740 --> 00:26:14.220 Frank R. Harrison: I don't know if there's ever really going to be a cure for epilepsy, but we know that there's definitely much more of a way of living, our lives with it now and trying to abolish the stigma that had.
00:26:14.580 --> 00:26:24.990 Frank R. Harrison: That that have followed up lipsticks for centuries, you know I think what the big stigma right now that most of us have to deal with no matter what this the disorder or the disease that we carry.
00:26:25.470 --> 00:26:36.750 Frank R. Harrison: is how not to depend so much on the medical professionals, or the government or any other people outside of yourself to give us the answers to problems that are affecting us from within.
00:26:37.500 --> 00:26:52.260 Frank R. Harrison: So I think again the ptsd show the covert show read the great show those were three milestone shows in a way that just taught me that at the end of the day, with whatever ails you it begins and ends with you.
00:26:52.890 --> 00:27:02.250 Frank R. Harrison: It is only then, when you're aware of how to live with it treat it deal with the right practitioners to help you cope with it, that you can then help others.
00:27:03.000 --> 00:27:13.920 Frank R. Harrison: And that's The only other barrier that we have to break the willingness for people to be taken care of and informed correctly, because there are many that are not willing to listen it's just that's a fact of life, I guess.
00:27:15.390 --> 00:27:32.970 Danielle Swanson: yeah I think a lot of the systems in place right now, or you know, like you said we can't really rely all the systems currently in place, we really have to find that, and you know self reliance solutions, and I think even among our own communities, I like to think of you know a lot of.
00:27:34.170 --> 00:27:48.780 Danielle Swanson: I don't know how you would say this properly because I mean this very respectfully but like stories you hear of communities and in older times, or even still in present like in native American Communities are different tribes that are very.
00:27:50.160 --> 00:28:03.000 Danielle Swanson: Community oriented everyone has a role every generation has what you know what they do the younger people take care of the older people, some people, and some people gather that's a very, very, very basic generalized level.
00:28:03.840 --> 00:28:08.850 Danielle Swanson: reduce it to that, but that idea of helping each other out is what i'm trying to get it.
00:28:09.690 --> 00:28:10.080 Frank R. Harrison: Yes.
00:28:10.380 --> 00:28:13.680 Danielle Swanson: What your responsibility is, I think, will play a huge role in our.
00:28:14.880 --> 00:28:16.050 Danielle Swanson: Well, being in the future.
00:28:16.530 --> 00:28:23.400 Frank R. Harrison: Well, that kind of also brings me back to the episode, I did with my cousin Jimmy Dwyer on DNA testing, I mean we actually met on 23 and me.
00:28:23.700 --> 00:28:32.520 Frank R. Harrison: But when we met, we were trying to learn about our ancestry from the native American tribe the Linux the Indians of New York New Jersey Delaware Connecticut and Pennsylvania.
00:28:33.120 --> 00:28:39.360 Frank R. Harrison: But, more importantly, the we were also trying to understand the genomic impact of things like the Mr na vaccines.
00:28:39.630 --> 00:28:46.530 Frank R. Harrison: We were trying to see if our own DNA would have impact on any kind of predisposition to things like diabetes or cardiac problems.
00:28:46.830 --> 00:28:55.620 Frank R. Harrison: But we were understanding the value that genomics does play in self care, as well as overall health care okay we're about to go to another break, but again.
00:28:55.950 --> 00:28:58.800 Frank R. Harrison: Some of the lessons learned that I just tried to cover with Danny.
00:28:59.220 --> 00:29:07.770 Frank R. Harrison: Was you need to be your own healthcare advocate, and you have to be aware of your mental health first before we undertake our physical health and that will be.
00:29:08.010 --> 00:29:17.460 Frank R. Harrison: The discussion points in Section three stay tuned right here on talk radio and yc as well as Facebook live and we'll be back in a few right here on frank about health.
00:31:46.980 --> 00:31:56.730 Frank R. Harrison: Everybody welcome back to this retrospective episode of frank about health, we were just talking Danny and I about the importance of being your own advocate and mental health issues that have come up.
00:31:57.090 --> 00:32:01.950 Frank R. Harrison: In our discussions first there was a talk about ptsd Then there was the big show on narcissism.
00:32:02.490 --> 00:32:10.710 Frank R. Harrison: But never did I find another show very moving as the one that I had with Nathan crane who had his discussion on holistic treatment for cancer.
00:32:11.160 --> 00:32:23.490 Frank R. Harrison: For those of you out there who saw it, it was held at Hilton grand vacations live from Las Vegas but most importantly it's this DVD that is available on Amazon COM which I hear is selling.
00:32:24.210 --> 00:32:32.400 Frank R. Harrison: leaps and bounds, because everyone is looking for a holistic treatment of whatever ails them but cancer, which used to have the number one.
00:32:34.230 --> 00:32:52.500 Frank R. Harrison: Is death mortality rate in the country before koba took over it basically was to be taught an educated as a lifestyle condition that it is what choices you've made earlier in your life that may have led you to breast cancer prostate cancer.
00:32:53.790 --> 00:33:03.450 Frank R. Harrison: colorectal cancer skin cancer, the list goes on the point is is that people can live with cancer, just like Danny and I have been living with epilepsy.
00:33:03.810 --> 00:33:16.800 Frank R. Harrison: People can live with cardiac problems, people can live with what ails them as long as they understand that it's not a death sentence it's just a warning and a red flag, that you have to be able to live a better quality of life.
00:33:17.310 --> 00:33:28.830 Frank R. Harrison: So that was one that one took away take away I had met episode another one that was actually a retro episode from five years ago that had to do with Jordan rosenblatt and his father.
00:33:29.520 --> 00:33:36.900 Frank R. Harrison: Who owned marks marine pharmacy and Vancouver Canada, they were talking back then, as they are now about how you could have five.
00:33:37.350 --> 00:33:43.590 Frank R. Harrison: more affordable prescriptions for your various health care needs, unlike here in the United States, where we still have.
00:33:44.010 --> 00:33:56.190 Frank R. Harrison: All the issues with insurance and other kinds of budgetary issues going on, but, most importantly, they were pointing out that their medications that they were selling world chemically produced in Canada.
00:33:56.580 --> 00:34:04.050 Frank R. Harrison: not going through all the patent laws and all the other restrictions that the United States imposes upon them to kind of ensure.
00:34:04.290 --> 00:34:10.020 Frank R. Harrison: that people will continue to refill their prescriptions and, therefore, the bottom line can be met by the pharmaceutical companies.
00:34:10.560 --> 00:34:22.620 Frank R. Harrison: But one thing I liked about marks green pharmacy and I still get some of my medications from them is that they were already offering cannabis products for the medical community, because it was already legal to do Canada in 2015 and 2016.
00:34:23.730 --> 00:34:34.710 Frank R. Harrison: At the same time, they also would do their own type of therapies for their internal patients that would come to mark's marine pharmacy for dermatological problems they were even dealing with pet problems.
00:34:35.130 --> 00:34:42.000 Frank R. Harrison: If your pet had leukemia or cancer or some disease, they would actually have medications for your pet I thought it was very.
00:34:42.930 --> 00:34:51.480 Frank R. Harrison: Sad would say novel but the irony is that it was going on for decades and centuries, you know centuries, if you look at also non Western meditation.
00:34:51.750 --> 00:35:01.080 Frank R. Harrison: Where they use yoga and meditation and acupuncture for the types of health healthcare issues that today, in the United States that appears that most recommendations are to get surgery.
00:35:01.410 --> 00:35:10.830 Frank R. Harrison: Or to try to get some form of medical infusion of pharmaceutical drugs and other kinds of treatments that could actually cause more harm than good.
00:35:12.120 --> 00:35:22.470 Frank R. Harrison: So I found Nathan cranes episode, as well as the pharmaceutical episode to be very insightful in terms of how people can continue to own.
00:35:22.860 --> 00:35:37.770 Frank R. Harrison: Their own health care, but using the right solutions, the right healthy solutions for their physical problems, which is what this section is about I know Danny you were not involved in no shows either so did you have any questions related to them.
00:35:47.820 --> 00:35:50.130 Danielle Swanson: I just realized, I was on mute I apologize um.
00:35:51.240 --> 00:35:59.250 Danielle Swanson: I am actually just kind of absorbing it all at the moment I yeah there's just so much to to speak about and and.
00:36:01.140 --> 00:36:16.200 Danielle Swanson: yeah just different different ways of awareness and different ways of looking at things I believe you mentioned about what parts of these you know illnesses are diseases are what what part of we played prior to getting them right.
00:36:16.890 --> 00:36:17.100 Frank R. Harrison: Right.
00:36:17.490 --> 00:36:27.600 Danielle Swanson: I think that's an incredibly important way to look at things it's a little hard to swallow, I think, especially if you have a relative or you yourself have that.
00:36:30.420 --> 00:36:36.150 Danielle Swanson: Because I do know people who have had you know family members passed away from from cancer or various different.
00:36:37.320 --> 00:36:38.040 Frank R. Harrison: purposes, but.
00:36:38.850 --> 00:36:49.440 Danielle Swanson: You know it's kind of like really, really being honest with yourself have you have you really eaten, you know very healthy every day of your life from the day you were born right or have you.
00:36:50.250 --> 00:36:57.360 Danielle Swanson: made a commitment to exercise and do all these these things that may have prevented it right, we don't know for sure, but.
00:36:57.840 --> 00:37:10.650 Danielle Swanson: it's you know, taking responsibility, but the good thing is, I think, with all of this is once you have that awareness about being responsible Oh, maybe I didn't do those things before well now i'm aware, I can start doing those things now.
00:37:11.250 --> 00:37:15.300 Frank R. Harrison: And then potentially change right, and you can share it with other people I think that's.
00:37:15.930 --> 00:37:18.300 Danielle Swanson: so important and it's not talked about enough.
00:37:19.500 --> 00:37:25.980 Danielle Swanson: yeah you got to be ready to swallow that information to take it in and deal with the emotions that come up because they're bound to like.
00:37:27.060 --> 00:37:32.280 Frank R. Harrison: Correct me, I mean each episode had its own topic, as you know, the various diseases that we were discussing.
00:37:32.580 --> 00:37:51.870 Frank R. Harrison: But I guess the common thread and each of them is just for the listener, and the viewer, especially those on Facebook live to take ownership of their health care issue, as I don't want to say an opportunity so much as a responsibility, because I guess the medical system has been.
00:37:53.130 --> 00:38:02.430 Frank R. Harrison: I guess you know a little bit all guided by organized doctors and prescription pharmacies and and regulations and all that stuff.
00:38:02.850 --> 00:38:13.650 Frank R. Harrison: But when you're really in a dire situation and you begin to explore alternative healthcare methods what you discover is that it's really kind of better to.
00:38:14.130 --> 00:38:22.890 Frank R. Harrison: Take ownership just through how your body is communicating to you, and in the case of Nathan crane as well as marks marine pharmacy.
00:38:23.310 --> 00:38:32.910 Frank R. Harrison: there's also another episode, I did with Len glassman he's the soul trainer where he tried to use physical therapy and nutrition as a means to get to healing your soul.
00:38:33.240 --> 00:38:38.730 Frank R. Harrison: A lot of it like we've talked in the first segment of this episode is in the brain our seizures.
00:38:39.060 --> 00:38:46.680 Frank R. Harrison: come from the brain narcissistic personalities come from the brain, but now that we know that why don't we know use our brain, for the good.
00:38:47.040 --> 00:38:56.730 Frank R. Harrison: So in the mental health section i'm saying Okay, you may have mental reactions to things but they're actually symptoms of something deeper that you probably haven't come into tune with.
00:38:57.180 --> 00:39:03.150 Frank R. Harrison: And then the physical ailments are manifestations of those things that you never really resolved or never faced.
00:39:03.540 --> 00:39:12.600 Frank R. Harrison: And so it's just that I found Nathan crane and I found Len glassman as inspirational people to advocate for the idea of owning your body.
00:39:12.840 --> 00:39:22.380 Frank R. Harrison: owning your illness owning your mind doing the necessary treatments that you've been prescribed but also doing whatever else is out there available to you.
00:39:22.620 --> 00:39:37.800 Frank R. Harrison: That you're probably never going to hear directly from anyone else other than your own searching and I think for those people who get Len glass men's book soul trainer I have a picture, right here for everybody, but also available on Amazon COM.
00:39:39.000 --> 00:39:42.570 Frank R. Harrison: I like the fact that, when he was on the show he talked about how he was a recovering lawyer.
00:39:43.770 --> 00:39:51.480 Frank R. Harrison: He was experiencing putting a lot of people into jail for small claims lawsuits and stuff like that, and he felt it was ripping his soul apart.
00:39:51.840 --> 00:39:57.270 Frank R. Harrison: Instead, he converted himself or by doing some training to become a nutritionist and eventual trainer.
00:39:57.750 --> 00:40:11.010 Frank R. Harrison: And he just was able to put the best of his previous career and his current career to work for the good of others, you know, so I just wanted people to know that one of the lessons learned during the last few weeks of frank about health.
00:40:12.030 --> 00:40:29.790 Frank R. Harrison: Is that it's so important to keep in mind of your physical health in such a way, where your focus is making sure you live as much of a high quality of life as possible, especially in your later years um The thing is, is that.
00:40:30.810 --> 00:40:41.250 Frank R. Harrison: What I also wanted to focus on was understanding, if in fact people out there were a little bit confused about some of the techniques that Len glass and had shown.
00:40:41.700 --> 00:40:50.070 Frank R. Harrison: I unfortunately can't show the clip from that at this time, but it is available on Facebook live to look at that episode was Eric about three weeks ago.
00:40:50.430 --> 00:41:02.040 Frank R. Harrison: And he had actually from his living room gone up and down and walked in place and was saying that the kind of benefits of doing those self help exercises was to.
00:41:02.580 --> 00:41:10.230 Frank R. Harrison: improve the metabolism, to improve your state of mind, as you were doing the activity to allow you to do more self reflection.
00:41:10.830 --> 00:41:22.080 Frank R. Harrison: To enhance your souls reaction to what you were doing not oh my God, I have to lose weight and therefore not going to be able to do this exercise, because it's going to exhaust me and i'm tired, no.
00:41:22.740 --> 00:41:31.770 Frank R. Harrison: Now I know exactly how to operate more fully and need more in touch with myself through these exercises, so I think.
00:41:32.220 --> 00:41:39.990 Frank R. Harrison: What what I took away from that was not necessarily just working with a nutritionist and trainer to help with trying to lose weight and stuff I took.
00:41:40.350 --> 00:41:47.940 Frank R. Harrison: As a way to cleanse your mind and your soul when dealing with your health problems rather than thinking negatively, as most of us tend to do.
00:41:49.080 --> 00:42:06.510 Frank R. Harrison: You know, so I think that the takeaways from again Nathan crane and Len glassman is to look at those health conditions that they are in the business of trying to communicate the proper treatment as a way to change your life around for the better.
00:42:08.400 --> 00:42:08.730 Frank R. Harrison: You know.
00:42:09.780 --> 00:42:19.110 Frank R. Harrison: Absolutely Oh, I see you mentioned something in the yoga that you did you had a mantra I am the master of my body mind and emotions.
00:42:19.830 --> 00:42:31.620 Danielle Swanson: I mean you can probably tweak the phrasing but I remember, we used to say that a lot and I just found it very empowering and it kind of goes along with what you're saying so I figured i'd take a moment to share that.
00:42:32.070 --> 00:42:34.950 Frank R. Harrison: yeah I think I was even saying on that show that I did.
00:42:34.950 --> 00:42:42.480 Frank R. Harrison: With Len glassman to thine own self be true right or it is in starting with yourself that you can help others, and I know.
00:42:43.770 --> 00:42:51.030 Frank R. Harrison: Sam leibowitz who is our producer here, he has his book which he talks about in his show the conscious consultant hour.
00:42:51.390 --> 00:42:57.060 Frank R. Harrison: And I even quoted from it, one of the things that brought me back to this show which is ask the right questions.
00:42:57.390 --> 00:43:06.720 Frank R. Harrison: And that's essentially where I also subscribe to the idea that saying mantras whether you've heard them or whether you were quoting from them, or whether they come up out of your own mind.
00:43:07.140 --> 00:43:20.820 Frank R. Harrison: Sometimes they can be real guides to be able to have a holistic sense of self a holistic way of treating your your your healthcare your lifestyle, all in the name of being able to ensure a higher quality of life.
00:43:22.290 --> 00:43:31.920 Frank R. Harrison: We seem to be headed for another break we're going to have closing thoughts we're going to talk about the future of frank about health and I know you have some things to share, about that.
00:43:32.910 --> 00:43:40.260 Frank R. Harrison: I just wanted to you know, make sure that in the first three sections we've covered the shows that we did on epilepsy and narcissism.
00:43:40.590 --> 00:43:50.820 Frank R. Harrison: I covered coven 19 I covered read this cardiac show the ptsd with the launch build a soda cancer with Nathan crane I also covered Len glassman soul trainer but.
00:43:51.420 --> 00:44:05.910 Frank R. Harrison: And also marks marine pharmacy which was very insightful Okay, so this is frank R Harrison and Danielle swanson here on a retrospective episode of frank about health will be back in a few right here on talk radio nyc and Facebook live.
00:46:35.790 --> 00:46:44.910 Frank R. Harrison: Everybody and welcome to the final segment of this retrospective episode of frank about help Danny and I have spoken over the last 45 minutes about.
00:46:45.360 --> 00:46:53.670 Frank R. Harrison: The two preeminent episodes that we worked on together we've also talked about the importance of lessons learned about how to own your body.
00:46:53.970 --> 00:47:02.010 Frank R. Harrison: How to own your mind how to own the symptoms of whatever ails you whether it's emotional psychological or even within your soul.
00:47:02.580 --> 00:47:07.740 Frank R. Harrison: The thing is, is that we also have to remember when read the Gray came on the show and talked about senior health care.
00:47:08.280 --> 00:47:16.290 Frank R. Harrison: which was actually back in June, she was talking about how a lot of seniors today don't even have access to their medical records they don't know where to go looking.
00:47:16.890 --> 00:47:24.930 Frank R. Harrison: You know, overall, the idea with healthcare is not to depend on the health care system to help you, you have to help yourself through the healthcare system.
00:47:25.440 --> 00:47:32.640 Frank R. Harrison: And I remember a lot of information that she quoted about how it was very helpful to her, especially when she experienced or cardiac episode.
00:47:32.970 --> 00:47:40.680 Frank R. Harrison: But it's also been helpful to her and how she's been taking care of a lot of elderly people that were really in harm's way, especially when covert 19 was at its peak.
00:47:41.280 --> 00:47:51.990 Frank R. Harrison: Now, with the delta variant a lot of interesting ironies there is that it's not the seniors that were worried about it anymore, because most of them are about 80% vaccinated in this country right now.
00:47:52.410 --> 00:48:02.250 Frank R. Harrison: it's the people under 12 and schools are going back in a few weeks, especially here in New York, I know in Boston it's probably around the same time, table right Danny probably I think so.
00:48:02.700 --> 00:48:15.180 Frank R. Harrison: Our new mayor i'm sorry our new governor Kathy huckle announced today that, if the delta variant continues to take precedence, as it seems to be doing across the country she may actually shut down schools now.
00:48:15.720 --> 00:48:29.310 Frank R. Harrison: it's just the ongoing cycle of information that we continue to get on a daily basis, I think there's real there's really no roadmap for anyone to follow, other than to rely on whatever fits your own individual circumstance.
00:48:29.790 --> 00:48:36.630 Frank R. Harrison: You know, one of the things that I wanted to make sure of by covering the last 10 episodes of frank about health during this show.
00:48:36.990 --> 00:48:41.280 Frank R. Harrison: was to set the stage for the type of shows that we're going to be having in the next few weeks.
00:48:41.760 --> 00:48:50.850 Frank R. Harrison: I know that there are many issues about health care that people label IT industry people label it a profession people sometimes just don't understand it.
00:48:51.360 --> 00:49:00.720 Frank R. Harrison: But healthcare, the true secret and all of this is that it's our own care that we are responsible for it's almost like an entrepreneurial profession unto itself.
00:49:01.260 --> 00:49:09.690 Frank R. Harrison: The thing is, is that when it comes to entrepreneurial ventures of any sort terrible financial and legal implications that have to be kept in mind.
00:49:10.260 --> 00:49:21.810 Frank R. Harrison: And so, starting next week i'm actually going to appear with a case of medicare fraud i'm not going to go into the guests, or the topic at the moment, because that is for next week.
00:49:22.230 --> 00:49:31.110 Frank R. Harrison: But it is something that I normally don't discuss but i'm trying to create a big picture here for the listeners and the viewers, that there is the good the bad and the ugly.
00:49:31.740 --> 00:49:38.400 Frank R. Harrison: Now, at the same time Danny you have a little bit about the good to share, about what will be coming in the next few weeks, do you want to.
00:49:38.610 --> 00:49:48.240 Danielle Swanson: Share we're working with a another guest potentially coming on some time and then in the coming month or two I believe we've set a date yet, but.
00:49:48.750 --> 00:50:02.280 Danielle Swanson: i'm James swanson who is actually a Mike my dad but he's also prepared on on the news a lot, he was a financial analyst I believe I getting that wrong, I hope, he's not mad if he's listening.
00:50:03.210 --> 00:50:04.440 Frank R. Harrison: um but.
00:50:04.530 --> 00:50:20.040 Danielle Swanson: I yeah he's I think he's going to be willing to come on the show and give us some insight into you know the financial world Kofi potentially I don't want to make any promises I can't keep because I don't know what the main focus is going to be yet, but.
00:50:21.060 --> 00:50:31.080 Danielle Swanson: I think a little bit about about cannabis potentially I forget what else we had talked about actually but, and I do apologize, I just want to.
00:50:31.680 --> 00:50:48.780 Danielle Swanson: say this, I did have a seizure last night, actually, which does affect me the next day so i'm a little off my game today, so I apologize for my being less than 100% today but it's all how it goes but yeah so it's very exciting we're having him on in a few weeks or so and.
00:50:48.810 --> 00:50:50.220 Frank R. Harrison: OK know.
00:50:50.370 --> 00:50:52.170 Danielle Swanson: If you want to jump in frank, please do.
00:50:52.410 --> 00:51:01.800 Frank R. Harrison: No, no, no, no problem you're giving the whole broad picture I mean here, we are living a life, every day, where we think we have it all organized, but the truth is we don't.
00:51:02.070 --> 00:51:10.560 Frank R. Harrison: We just living with the short term knowledge that we're gaining every day with the lessons of living with Kobe living with our own retro our own individual epilepsy.
00:51:10.980 --> 00:51:19.350 Frank R. Harrison: you're dealing with cannabis treatments which has been working for you, I gather, you had the seizure because of something unrelated to cannabis or did cannabis.
00:51:20.100 --> 00:51:36.000 Danielle Swanson: combination, it was me trying to be practical, but also being frankly a little stupid, at the same time I had ticket I had consumed a little too much caffeine yesterday, which I think does play a role for for me with seizures it does, I think, for a lot of people, but not everybody.
00:51:37.140 --> 00:51:52.170 Danielle Swanson: And I am actually starting a new job I have an exam tomorrow and I didn't want the cannabis, to be affecting me too much, so I didn't take any last night, so I think it's maybe that combination of too much caffeine, and not any you know cannabis to like.
00:51:52.830 --> 00:51:55.110 Frank R. Harrison: Too much stimulation, but less relaxation.
00:51:55.410 --> 00:51:59.100 Danielle Swanson: yeah something something like that just being silly.
00:51:59.970 --> 00:52:05.730 Frank R. Harrison: Okay well at least I i've known you for 12 years now, and I know you've been dealing with seizures for 23.
00:52:06.180 --> 00:52:14.130 Frank R. Harrison: I myself have been dealing with it, since since 1984 So what is that almost 40 years The point is, you and I both have mastered.
00:52:14.490 --> 00:52:25.020 Frank R. Harrison: How to live our lives with epilepsy, and I think what i've tried to make clear to the listeners and the viewers out there for the past hour is that when you master your illness and you mess your brain your mind.
00:52:25.500 --> 00:52:35.310 Frank R. Harrison: you're thinking your soul your faith, when you master the resources, you have you take ownership over your healthcare and your treatments and then I hope.
00:52:35.790 --> 00:52:42.330 Frank R. Harrison: that the last 10 guests that we've had including yourself and just been instrumental as providing themselves as examples.
00:52:42.840 --> 00:52:51.330 Frank R. Harrison: of how to be able to be more informed with what the illness is how to be more holistic about the treatment, how to be more positive about the experience.
00:52:51.660 --> 00:52:59.520 Frank R. Harrison: Even though sometimes some of the diagnoses are daunting like I know my father had experience with cancer during coven and actually that was his blessing.
00:52:59.850 --> 00:53:10.290 Frank R. Harrison: The vaccines have helped him to resolve his prostate cancer, you know now that is my theory and based on my knowledge, but of course until it's scientifically proven I can never stake claim on it.
00:53:11.220 --> 00:53:23.130 Danielle Swanson: We do more research on that soon you know, on the on the alternative options, you know because I think when you find the combination that works for you, for whatever you have whether it's epilepsy or or cancer, whatever it is.
00:53:24.210 --> 00:53:29.130 Danielle Swanson: Just other ways of dealing with it they're very empowering and and less costly.
00:53:30.120 --> 00:53:38.610 Frank R. Harrison: Correct I mean Pfizer and Madonna are definitely been instrumental and innovative and I think that's probably some of what your father will be talking about in the later show.
00:53:39.000 --> 00:53:44.160 Frank R. Harrison: The thing is Madonna is talking about issuing a new vaccine exclusively for the delta variant.
00:53:44.610 --> 00:53:54.570 Frank R. Harrison: it's the whole Mr any vaccines that I mentioned on the covert show about how genomics plays a big element in not just the vaccines, but in epilepsy and in cancer and and.
00:53:54.900 --> 00:54:01.920 Frank R. Harrison: Just overall understanding your whole health care what you're predisposed to in the future, what your children could be predisposed to.
00:54:02.490 --> 00:54:10.590 Frank R. Harrison: I think i'm looking forward to talking about the good in the bed next week, but then i'll recap it two weeks later i'm going to re air.
00:54:10.920 --> 00:54:18.720 Frank R. Harrison: Nathan cranes video on holistic healing I think it was very informational I know it was informational for Hilton hotels they've actually.
00:54:19.290 --> 00:54:27.120 Frank R. Harrison: agreed in the future to do more, collaboration on frank about health they're going to have some of their people speak on the show in the future and.
00:54:27.720 --> 00:54:34.290 Frank R. Harrison: Again, even nyu langone where I have most of my doctors my neurologist is going to be a guest on the show in the future.
00:54:34.800 --> 00:54:43.290 Frank R. Harrison: And you know when you mentioned about just having your experience there with overstimulating with caffeine and going away from your cannabis.
00:54:43.680 --> 00:54:49.590 Frank R. Harrison: it's ironic, maybe the cannabis would have balanced you out, so I mean i'm talking about cannabis, right now, so aggressively because.
00:54:50.010 --> 00:54:56.850 Frank R. Harrison: coming in about a couple Minutes will be planted pukka low low with our own Johnny tsunami, and that in itself has been a very positive show.
00:54:57.210 --> 00:55:02.430 Frank R. Harrison: I listened to it as often as I can, especially because even though i'm a candidate for cannabis.
00:55:02.850 --> 00:55:10.860 Frank R. Harrison: I i've seen the weight gain it put on me so i'm not going to actually pursue that any longer, but i'm happy with my capra i'm happy that.
00:55:11.190 --> 00:55:16.230 Frank R. Harrison: When I was trying out for cannabis that actually weaved me off of lamictal the medication, I used to take.
00:55:16.680 --> 00:55:28.440 Frank R. Harrison: But more importantly i'm just being very mindful and being alert how important it is that I want to be frank about health on any issue that I can be so I can remain and continue to be an advocate.
00:55:28.830 --> 00:55:35.340 Frank R. Harrison: For social health care it's not a social justice reform, nor would I try to be involved in that, but.
00:55:35.790 --> 00:55:46.200 Frank R. Harrison: There is a lot of social injustice going on in healthcare, and all I could do is just be the messenger provide as much information as possible and hope that people will listen can't force that.
00:55:46.620 --> 00:55:58.950 Frank R. Harrison: But it is in the hope, especially for those that are predisposed to different illnesses and stuff that people will listen, by default, especially when they have no other choice that's been the biggest lesson i've taken away, not just from doing the show, but just by living life.
00:56:01.290 --> 00:56:14.670 Danielle Swanson: And I want to thank you just before we go go, I want to thank you for for bringing this show to life frank and for for the platform it's on I think it's a lot of really important topics and that like i'm actually getting inspired to do it myself someday but.
00:56:15.930 --> 00:56:18.090 Frank R. Harrison: just give me a call and we'll see what we can do.
00:56:19.080 --> 00:56:22.230 Danielle Swanson: I really appreciate the awareness and i'm gonna let you take over.
