[NEW EPISODE] October Health News


For the first time ever, I will inform all health news leading the headlines in an attempt to provide a news segment covering ongoing health concerns including mental health, impact on climate change, resources and Technology information in Healthcare.

In an attempt to provide public awareness of key health issues mentioned daily in the media, I will do what I can to summarize the key issues affecting our health and wellness.

Show Notes

Segment 1

In this episode, Frank is by himself and discusses different health-related issues the media has been focusing on recently. October is the month of many medical and neurological condition awareness, including Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP) and ADHD. Frank will be bringing light to those conditions in this episode as well. To start the conversation, Frank decides to speak about breast cancer awareness, since October is the official month for breast cancer. He shows a clip from ABC’s Good Morning America with different statistics and tips, encouraging viewers to go visit their doctors. It is important to remember that men and women can get breast cancer and the survival rate for patients is 99% when you visit your doctor annually for checkups.

Segment 2

After the first break, Frank reminds the viewers that your mental health and neurological health are just as important as your physical health. It is important that we stay vigilant in all aspects of our healthcare, so Frank will spend the remainder of this episode discussing the awareness and conditions of different mental and neurological conditions. With that being said, Frank moved forward into the conversation by discussing the last episode’s theme, which was Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP), with Jeff Demitrack. He also discusses the basics of Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Down-Syndrome, and Dyslexia. These are all examples of how the brain can be rewired than the average brain. Some conditions are genetic and others already exist, but can be manageable with the right supportive care. He ends the segment by discussing different health issues that were showcased in previous episodes of Frank About Health.

Segment 3

October is also Depression Awareness Month, so in this segment, Frank shares information about depression itself, provides different sources to receive help, and educates the audience with statistics about depression. Frank becomes a little more personal, sharing his family’s experiences with depression and what his family does to help cope and grow from it. He also shares what you can do to help your loved ones if they are suffering from depression and what someone can do to advocate and empower others to keep going. There are numerous resources and communities that people can be a part of to help get the resources they need to be the best possible version of themselves.

Segment 4

To close this episode, Jeff Demitrack reached out to Frank during the livestream and added to his commentary with some more research and statistics. Frank also extends his gratitude to the people who have helped him over the years with his epileptic condition, including the Talk Radio.NYC network that helped him to build Frank’s platform for his podcast show. Finally, he shares updates from previous guests such as Morry Zelcovitch, inventor of The Morry Method, and Jeff Demitrack. Plus, he also shares future discussions for the show and what the audience can expect.


00:00:48.540 --> 00:01:13.350 Frank R. Harrison: hey, everybody, and welcome to a special episode of Frank about health. What makes it special is that it's going to be just me, myself and I presenting overall health news. This would be the equivalent of not Cnn or even ABC. News, but it would be just focus on the health topics of the day that have been really in the media on a regular basis. For example.

00:01:13.350 --> 00:01:29.519 Frank R. Harrison: those of you who are in the medical profession are aware of an ongoing strike that is, in day 3 in the middle of the country. Again, better wages, unionised labor. It could be a combination of doctors and nurses, Emt workers. But that's a health issue.

00:01:29.550 --> 00:01:31.019 Frank R. Harrison: You know. Health

00:01:31.420 --> 00:01:41.790 Frank R. Harrison: concerns for ourselves. Include getting your Covid shot, your flu shot, and if you're over a certain age, I think 50. It's your shingle shot, and if you're over 65, it's your pneumonia shot.

00:01:41.810 --> 00:02:05.399 Frank R. Harrison: I've got 2 out of those 4. Just this past week, and I'm headed for my shingle shot in a couple of weeks. But then there's also the fact that October is an interesting month in the following way, it is both breadth. It is both breast cancer, awareness month, and it is also a combination of mental and neurological health

00:02:05.680 --> 00:02:14.110 Frank R. Harrison: month. Now, what do I mean by that? Well, if you recall last week on Frank about health, Jeff Demetrik was here talking about something called Sudep

00:02:14.180 --> 00:02:42.370 Frank R. Harrison: sudden, unexplained deaths from epilepsy. But he had just decided to give me an awareness that October is not just sudep awareness month. It is adhd awareness down syndrome awareness, dyslexia, awareness, learning, disability, awareness, national depression and mental health screening awareness, spina bifida awareness. And he said, That's just among a few. So I decided okay, on one level. I was going to come and talk about just general news.

00:02:42.510 --> 00:03:02.630 Frank R. Harrison: A lot of that was not originally planned, because if you did see last week's show, I did say I had an understanding of who my guest was gonna be. I had 2 people in mind, and they both postpone for the next 3 weeks, so I was left with, do I give you a rerun, a replay after I had just taken a month long hiatus? Or do I give you just me.

00:03:02.780 --> 00:03:21.879 Frank R. Harrison: I mean, I'm taking advice a lot from Sam who's done shows on his own on the conscious consultant hour. And he has said, You know, in our in our overall host meetings, as well as in on his own show that there are times when it's just time for the audience out there to see me being frank about health with all of you out there and being that

00:03:22.270 --> 00:03:38.780 Frank R. Harrison: we're on talk radio, dot, Nyc, Facebook, Youtube, Linkedin, and, thanks to Logan out there who's helping produce the show? He's monitoring your questions. If you have any live questions throughout the hour, please think of this as your show as well.

00:03:38.780 --> 00:04:01.320 Frank R. Harrison: You want to address any health topics that you're aware of that maybe you'd like to share that are not going to be on discussion for the next hour, or possibly you could just answer comments, or I mean, I ask questions or make comments about some of the things that I'm going to discuss. So for this reason alone, I will also be showing excerpts from ABC news and their focus of specific health issues.

00:04:01.410 --> 00:04:15.410 Frank R. Harrison: It's not being sponsored by ABC. But it is already been broadcast on ABC. And therefore it's public information that I'm showing from Youtube and wouldn't qualify for providing any

00:04:15.490 --> 00:04:25.389 Frank R. Harrison: any information that should require permission, because it's public health information. And II want to be one of the first to provide that here on this show.

00:04:25.430 --> 00:04:50.390 Frank R. Harrison: So I think what I'm gonna do is I'm not gonna issue a disclaimer because I'm just gonna be providing about updates and news that's already out there. But I am going to issue segment breakdowns and make focus on the major issues that you you should walk away from this show with. So I'm gonna break it into breast cancer, awareness and mental and neurological care.

00:04:50.440 --> 00:05:11.140 Frank R. Harrison: That is specifically it. And then when we close out the show, I'll give my promotions about what's coming up on talk radio dot Nyc. On other episodes of frank about health. What other things I'm doing to advocate for healthcare awareness within family friends, loved ones, associates, and overall how we can have ongoing communication

00:05:11.150 --> 00:05:18.070 Frank R. Harrison: in between each episode. Well, I guess the first thing I should start with is cancer awareness month.

00:05:18.090 --> 00:05:26.549 Frank R. Harrison: That being said, I'm going to share the screen and show what was on Gma 3 sometime this week. I do not think it was

00:05:26.740 --> 00:05:28.000 Frank R. Harrison: today

00:05:36.350 --> 00:06:01.040 it is pink in the studio for a reason. October is breast awareness cancer month. And we're gonna be talking about prevention, how you can also treat. Yeah, the disease, and also how we can help. Yes, a very important month devoted to education, the importance of early detection and access to quality care. So to get us all on the same level. I wanted to start with some basic numbers. So first off breast cancer, it represents approximately 30% of all cancers.

00:06:01.050 --> 00:06:25.239 And also, unfortunately, it's the most common cancer diagnosis within the United States that equates to approximately 2,000 240,000 women and almost 2,000 men each and every year. The incident rate we've seen in recent years, unfortunately, has increased by about half a percent. Secondly, risk factors. The most common risk factor is age. The Median age of diagnosis is the age of 62. That means that half of those diagnosis are

00:06:25.240 --> 00:06:50.120 under the age of 62, also inherited genetic risk factors, family history, first degree relatives with a history of breast or ovarian cancer, and those who have dense breasts, and to be to be specific about that density breast density is diagnosed on imaging. It's not something that can be diagnosed on exam. Got to get the imaging done, bringing it to that screening, that discussion, screening and discussions about screening should start

00:06:50.120 --> 00:07:03.110 at the age of 40, and most people don't realise it. But most insurance coverage it should be all cover mammograms every one to 2 years for women at the age of 40. It's important to understand your coverage the very same way that you understand your bank account.

00:07:03.110 --> 00:07:27.860 and then I think the most important number is survivors. Right now. In the United States there are more than 4 million women and men that are surviving breast cancer and currently undergoing treatment. And I think that that number is the most important, especially to draw on that collective strength. They are thriving, and early. Detection is key absolutely, and many don't realize it. But if you find breast cancer at the earliest stages, your 5 year survival rate can be as high as 99%.

00:07:28.020 --> 00:07:52.690 So start that discussion about mammograms. Get in there and make sure that you just answer all your questions, answered. Look, I can say it can be scary to go in and get that imaging done, but it's so much more important to do it now and catch it early. Yes, get it out of the way. Unfortunately, in the emergency room I'm usually at the very beginning of many stories of their breast cancer when they are finding masses and trying to understand what can be the cause, and again getting it out of the way

00:07:52.690 --> 00:08:01.470 is so key so important. Don't put it off. It's your health. Treat it as the most important thing in your life. Can't say it enough, Doc. Thank you. Well, hey, there, Gma fans, Rob.

00:08:08.540 --> 00:08:09.850 Frank R. Harrison: Okay.

00:08:10.040 --> 00:08:11.060 Frank R. Harrison: so

00:08:11.140 --> 00:08:25.649 Frank R. Harrison: I'm hoping all of you heard that if you didn't, I apologize. I'm doing my best to bring real live media into the show. That was on Gma. 3 sometime during this week, because the month of October is breast cancer awareness month.

00:08:25.700 --> 00:08:49.999 Frank R. Harrison: Just to repeat some of the key takeaways. Men do get it as well. They said 62 was the age at which diagnosis is more rampant, but after age 40, for most women, especially your insurance provider, will allow coverage for your annual or biannual annualram mammogram, which is one to 2 every one to 2 years. I could say that, you know. Obviously it is not

00:08:50.020 --> 00:09:11.320 Frank R. Harrison: one of my major concerns. I know if I had a guest on the show with me today who is concerned about breast cancer it, she would have been able to give you much more direct information. But I'm doing my part to just spread the awareness for the month of October, because the rest of the show will be focused on mental and neurological health

00:09:11.570 --> 00:09:25.519 Frank R. Harrison: and then overall. The other takeaway is the host over at Gma. 3 had indicated that you know the survival rate. If you have constant ongoing checkups is 99%. So that's all very good news.

00:09:25.610 --> 00:09:36.289 Frank R. Harrison: Alright. So I did. I did my part for women's health today, and I hope that a lot of you out there got a chance to hear it clearly and learn something from it.

00:09:36.820 --> 00:09:57.360 Frank R. Harrison: Alright, overall. We're about 2 min to break, and I'm considering that a breather, because now I'm gonna prepare for the rest of the show, where I will discuss again a lot of what Jeff had talked about on last week's show. We'll touch upon Sudep again. We'll go into other mental health and neurological health awareness issues that are happening this month

00:09:57.420 --> 00:10:04.429 Frank R. Harrison: and then we'll hopefully take some of your questions if you have any thanks again. For

00:10:04.670 --> 00:10:11.199 Frank R. Harrison: me being frank about the news in healthcare, and we'll be back after these brief messages. Stay tuned.

00:12:18.120 --> 00:12:27.140 Frank R. Harrison: hey, everybody and welcome back. And now I'm going to get involved in discussing pretty much a lot of my research expertise, as well as

00:12:27.230 --> 00:12:44.680 Frank R. Harrison: following up on some of the discussion that I had last week with Jeff Dimitra. I really talked about Sudep. I want everyone to be aware that mental health and neurological health is predominant in all of our healthcare needs and advocacy work. Now, what I mean by that is that you know the phrase, if you don't have your health.

00:12:45.080 --> 00:12:58.639 Frank R. Harrison: you really don't have your wealth. You don't have your knowledge base. You don't have the ability to move forward and get everything done. We talked earlier about breast cancer awareness month. Of course the lesson learned there is that keeping yourself in check

00:12:58.800 --> 00:13:08.619 Frank R. Harrison: and make sure that you have early detection will allow pretty much anyone to go ahead and maintain their health while they're still moving about their life. Now

00:13:08.660 --> 00:13:26.129 Frank R. Harrison: the thing is is that we all can move about our life when we are focused, when we live in the moment when we are aware of whatever our traumas have been, and whether they're affecting us in our life today, when, if you are dealing with epilepsy like Jeff and I have discussed on several shows.

00:13:26.140 --> 00:13:40.010 Frank R. Harrison: you know, we always have to be monitoring of our environment. And if we're feeling weird or awkward or strained sensations going throughout our system throughout the day, which could be the onset of a seizure, or could just be a warning that you're in an environment that's not safe for you.

00:13:40.040 --> 00:14:02.730 Frank R. Harrison: But aside from being vigilant in those particular instances, we all have to be vigilant about our healthcare. So we can live the best quality of life possible. Which is why I wanna dedicate the rest of this show to focusing on the mental and neurological health issues that are that are pretty much consuming us. And that all being said, I'm gonna start talking again about what Jeff mentioned last week

00:14:02.980 --> 00:14:16.769 Frank R. Harrison: about sudap. Now Sudap is an acronym SUDE. P. Sudden unexpected death and epilepsy, which, by the way, is a fatal complication of epilepsy. But it is not a cause of death.

00:14:16.890 --> 00:14:28.729 Frank R. Harrison: rather at a category of death. In suit-up cases a person with epilepsy dies unexpectedly, with no no other clear cause of death found when a post-mortem exam has been done, or an autopsy

00:14:28.810 --> 00:14:38.489 Frank R. Harrison: in an attempt to standardize the definition, the FDA and Other organizations, including one that I have researched, named Burroughs. Welcome.

00:14:38.910 --> 00:14:52.760 Frank R. Harrison: develop the following criteria for Sudep in 90 93. So take your pencils and papers out and write them down. If you're interested. One is that the individual has epilepsy which is defined as recurrent, unprovoked seizures.

00:14:52.770 --> 00:15:02.339 Frank R. Harrison: The second one, the individual died unexpectedly, while in a reasonable state of health. Number 3. The death occurred suddenly, and within minutes

00:15:02.490 --> 00:15:06.670 number 4. The death occurred. During normal and benign circumstances.

00:15:06.690 --> 00:15:16.529 Frank R. Harrison: An obvious medical cause of death could not be determined at autopsy and number 6. The death was not the direct result of a seizure or status epilepticis.

00:15:16.640 --> 00:15:21.410 Frank R. Harrison: That's what makes Sudep very not vague, but

00:15:21.430 --> 00:15:26.790 Frank R. Harrison: kind of like a a, a phenomenon, or an unexplained issue.

00:15:26.910 --> 00:15:42.810 Frank R. Harrison: I could presume, or anyone could presume, that if the individual suffering from a seizure died all of a sudden that it was connected. But sometimes think about it. It's electrical discharges and brainwave activity that are uncontrolled, and either genetically or post traumatic

00:15:43.200 --> 00:15:59.139 Frank R. Harrison: end up being provoked. And it's not only affecting the brain, really, but it's also affecting the other organs. So maybe it has some inference as to stopping certain organs from functioning which could lead to the death. But in a lot of ways it's not conclusive.

00:16:00.000 --> 00:16:07.950 Frank R. Harrison: Another thing that is common is Adhd. Attention, deficit, hyperactivity, disorder.

00:16:08.180 --> 00:16:09.110 Frank R. Harrison: Now

00:16:09.600 --> 00:16:26.629 Frank R. Harrison: to define that it is a chronic condition, including attention, difficulty, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness. It often begins in childhood and can persist into adulthood. It may contribute to things like low self esteem, troubled relationships, difficulty at school or work

00:16:26.640 --> 00:16:38.879 Frank R. Harrison: symptoms include limited attention and hyperactivity, but treatments do include medication and talk therapy. Now 3 categories of Adhd. As I mentioned earlier, our inattention.

00:16:38.940 --> 00:16:46.770 Frank R. Harrison: impulsivity, and hyperactivity. But of those 3 the hyperactivity seems to be in constant motion.

00:16:46.790 --> 00:17:09.020 Frank R. Harrison: and it can sometimes climb at an increasing speed and definitely keep you distracted. So I would see where the medication can help. I know there are a lot of students who take Adderall, or even some other kind of sedatives, to help them in studying. But I would say definitely, if you are suffering from Adhd, which might even have a genetic component

00:17:09.079 --> 00:17:16.190 Frank R. Harrison: talk. Therapy is definitely a key. Another aspect is down syndrome.

00:17:16.250 --> 00:17:27.960 Frank R. Harrison: a genetic condition where a person is born with an extra copy of chromosome number 21. This means that they have a total of 47 chromosomes instead of 46. Our standard number.

00:17:28.210 --> 00:17:36.660 Frank R. Harrison: This can affect how their brain and body develop. People diagnosed with down syndrome have happy and healthy lives. As long as they have supportive care.

00:17:37.240 --> 00:17:45.510 Frank R. Harrison: I couldn't say anything about the lifespan of an individual with down syndrome. But what I can say is, having met a few in my life.

00:17:45.740 --> 00:17:56.630 Frank R. Harrison: They are relatively happy and stable individuals, but they do need special education, and they do need constant care from family and loved ones, and of course their medical, professional.

00:17:57.380 --> 00:18:02.590 Frank R. Harrison: And then finally. dyslexia. Well, dyslexia

00:18:02.690 --> 00:18:10.020 Frank R. Harrison: is not the core problem. Dyslexia is a group of symptoms such as difficulty reading and writing.

00:18:10.330 --> 00:18:12.880 Frank R. Harrison: difficulty processing sound

00:18:13.050 --> 00:18:20.189 Frank R. Harrison: problem, solving. It has difficulty, difficulty putting detail in order. Communication skills are difficult.

00:18:20.220 --> 00:18:32.599 Frank R. Harrison: difficult in remembering sound, they have great long-term memory. But yet the way I've always understood dyslexia is that instead of an R, it looks like a P, or it's a switch of letters. That's a very simplistic

00:18:32.650 --> 00:18:33.819 Frank R. Harrison: sense of it.

00:18:33.830 --> 00:18:42.210 Frank R. Harrison: But at the end of the day. While it is symptomatic, it is still showing a disarray of how the neurons are firing in the brain

00:18:43.050 --> 00:18:53.570 Frank R. Harrison: overall. Those 4 that I mentioned Sudep dyslexia. Adhd, and I think the other one was down. Syndrome

00:18:53.980 --> 00:19:02.980 Frank R. Harrison: are all well down. Syndrome is genetic in nature as as clearly defined. but they are all relative examples of how the brain

00:19:03.290 --> 00:19:12.780 Frank R. Harrison: has been rewired in some way, whether in utero, or probably during one's life and traumatic events that may have may not have occurred.

00:19:12.910 --> 00:19:15.610 Frank R. Harrison: Epilepsy can be considered that way as well.

00:19:15.690 --> 00:19:31.109 Frank R. Harrison: But fundamentally, no matter how you slice it, no matter what your neurological issue is, your mental health is always at stake. Fundamentally, people have anxiety, and people have depression, but depression is the core that we all have to get to the.

00:19:31.120 --> 00:19:41.069 Frank R. Harrison: to the understanding of of whether there needs to be an overall treatment, for because once that is dealt with succinctly and professionally and medically.

00:19:41.400 --> 00:19:50.090 Frank R. Harrison: the other symptoms, as I previously mentioned may actually be cured at the same time, or may not, they may be separate and distinct.

00:19:51.090 --> 00:20:01.340 Frank R. Harrison: Well, I think I'm gonna devote the third segment of the show to mainly depression. And I'm gonna switch the screen and show you a whole summary or blog

00:20:01.450 --> 00:20:05.610 Frank R. Harrison: written by let me see exactly who wrote it.

00:20:06.660 --> 00:20:19.229 Frank R. Harrison: It is written by medicalnewstcom. And when I show that to you we're gonna go over into understanding that there are ways to deal with depression, whether through medicines, whether through therapy.

00:20:19.250 --> 00:20:36.919 Frank R. Harrison: whether through managing with good support networks, family members. I'm here at Nyu Langone health systems, and they have an excellent psychiatric department called psychiatric Associates on Park Avenue in the thirties. And

00:20:37.070 --> 00:21:03.880 Frank R. Harrison: I also, you know, having studied neuropology, I also know the right doctors in this center that could be of reference to anyone out there looking to speak to somebody. So if anybody, a after we return and we go over the whole depression segment of the show. If anybody wants to reach out to me to find resources, you can always reach me on my social media or on my email. Frank R. Harrison,

00:21:03.990 --> 00:21:13.709 Frank R. Harrison: so overall. I think I noticed that in developing this episode I went from I'm going to talk about news of the day to. I'm going to talk about

00:21:13.790 --> 00:21:26.120 Frank R. Harrison: what this month is about, and thanks to Jeff's guidance in creating the breakdown between the various aspects of neurological and mental health awareness coupled with breast cancer awareness month.

00:21:26.360 --> 00:21:30.230 Frank R. Harrison: It just makes sense to be frank about those 2 main issues, because

00:21:30.240 --> 00:21:42.179 Frank R. Harrison: in the coming month we will have episodes on Frank about health. Where individuals who are dealing with those illnesses or dealing with those concerns will be guests, and we will also break it further.

00:21:42.470 --> 00:21:46.020 Frank R. Harrison:  let's see what else I can share

00:21:46.330 --> 00:22:10.580 Frank R. Harrison: overall. If anybody is dealing with suicide or suicidal ideation, I wanna quote the number that Phyllis Quinlan, my co-host last year had discussed 9, 8, 8. It was activated in July of 2022. I see it advertised all over the place now on talk shows on medical shows on TV commercials, especially when there's suicide prevention programs out there.

00:22:10.590 --> 00:22:20.580 Frank R. Harrison: I would recommend using that, especially if you fit any of the categories that I had just discussed. And you want to deal with your depression, and you're dealing with other kind of

00:22:20.890 --> 00:22:24.020 Frank R. Harrison: ideation that you really don't want to be coping with.

00:22:24.160 --> 00:22:37.660 Frank R. Harrison: Just go ahead and dial that number, and they will find you a talk therapist to deal with, and I think you'll find yourself at least coping as you find the solutions and the cures to whatever your mental or neurological health problem is.

00:22:41.210 --> 00:22:44.449 Frank R. Harrison: I think I'm a little bit early to go to a break.

00:22:44.480 --> 00:23:02.110 Frank R. Harrison: so let me wait until I get the warning and just recap some of our previous shows where we did talk about mental health issues. If you recall, there was an episode I did with the replacement Child Forum, where a lot of individuals were dealing with identity as a result of being replacement children.

00:23:02.180 --> 00:23:21.459 Frank R. Harrison: and they had formed the replacement child Forum as a group to support those survivors of, or those individuals who were considered replacement children, and they were learning to cope with acceptance and forgiveness, and understand that it was not their fault that they were replaced from the previous sibling who had died before they were born.

00:23:21.620 --> 00:23:24.280 Frank R. Harrison: You know it's a mental health issue.

00:23:24.290 --> 00:23:41.600 Frank R. Harrison: even though everybody is born into different circumstances, you know. But the one thing that most people need to realize when they're dealing with mental health. The the idea is not to hide from it and not to run away from it. It's to engage with community.

00:23:41.750 --> 00:23:49.410 Frank R. Harrison: whatever the community that you can find yourself involved with or engage with, because sometimes just engaging with that community

00:23:49.450 --> 00:23:52.470 Frank R. Harrison: goes ahead and improves on your mental health.

00:23:52.510 --> 00:24:03.640 Frank R. Harrison: Sometimes, when I have a sluggish day, or when I'm feeling depressed, I just walk outside, and I notice that I do my best thinking when I'm doing my walking. Sometimes you just got to take yourself

00:24:03.650 --> 00:24:09.640 Frank R. Harrison: by your bootstraps and get out of the house and get out of whatever other environment that is stagnating your thinking

00:24:09.660 --> 00:24:17.519 Frank R. Harrison: and just get yourself going. Because when you do that, you most people don't realize it. But you are in charge of your mental health.

00:24:17.590 --> 00:24:35.789 Frank R. Harrison: You don't have to wait for that magic pill or that magic cure. You just have to take action, and it's in taking action that you see yourself regulating. Oh, this also brings me to the attention we were talking about. Good morning, America earlier, with their discussion of breast cancer awareness month.

00:24:36.170 --> 00:24:59.470 Frank R. Harrison: But there's a book that I had just ordered on by Matt Gutman, who is an ABC. News reporter. No time to panic. This is a man who's gone to the Ukraine who's gone to other war torn areas of the world who has dealt with. He he was in, you know, reporting on the insurrection when that happened in January of 2020. I'm sorry. 2021

00:25:00.300 --> 00:25:02.909 Frank R. Harrison: yet he suffers from Ptsd.

00:25:02.930 --> 00:25:26.569 Frank R. Harrison: And tremendous anxiety. You would think that someone that deals with that would would find being in those hostile environments as triggers. But apparently they seem to sedate him. So he writes about that whole story, I would highly recommend getting this book on Amazon. And it's again dealing with mental health. But with respect to Ptsd.

00:25:26.610 --> 00:25:35.530 Frank R. Harrison: okay, I've got the warning. We're headed for another break. So when we return, we're gonna talk all about depression and ways to learn cope heal

00:25:35.670 --> 00:25:45.100 Frank R. Harrison: and regulated alright. Thanks for being here on Frank about health and talk radio. Nyc. As well as all of our socials. We'll be back in a few.

00:27:46.480 --> 00:27:58.430 Frank R. Harrison: everybody and welcome back. I figure I'll just go straight to the slide that focuses on depression.  and

00:28:00.450 --> 00:28:02.580 Frank R. Harrison: we'll get more information on this.

00:28:03.630 --> 00:28:07.939 Frank R. Harrison: Okay? So depression, awareness month is in October.

00:28:08.180 --> 00:28:09.660 Frank R. Harrison: It's recognized

00:28:10.160 --> 00:28:19.339 Frank R. Harrison: each year as that month to increase understanding, decrease, stereotypes and help educate on how depression and other mental health issues impact people.

00:28:19.540 --> 00:28:24.709 Frank R. Harrison: Awareness months give people affected by a specific condition, a chance to share their stories.

00:28:24.860 --> 00:28:32.189 Frank R. Harrison: The goal is to help increase the overall understanding of depression or other conditions and help overcome stereotypes.

00:28:32.530 --> 00:28:46.350 Frank R. Harrison: Now, I just want to make sure that everyone is listening to this. Okay?  overall. There's an interesting article about why this month is important.

00:28:46.620 --> 00:28:53.290 Frank R. Harrison: And it talks also about 30% of people in 20 based on a 2,018 study

00:28:53.340 --> 00:29:11.169 Frank R. Harrison: reported believing a weak personality causes depression 58.9% reported believing that pharmaceutical interventions or medications are not an effective treatment, and over 70% reported understanding the importance of rest that a person may appear happier than they actually are when living with depression.

00:29:11.390 --> 00:29:31.010 Frank R. Harrison: So it's an advocacy month. And you try to get involved in a lot of programs and seminars and just everything out there that is available to you. Now this is when I can get more personal, especially because this is frank about health, and I will start talking about what life has been like.

00:29:31.110 --> 00:29:40.619 Frank R. Harrison: both living with depression as well as living with people who suffer from depression, and also coming into contact with a lot of people that have been traumatized and therefore depressed

00:29:40.790 --> 00:29:55.810 Frank R. Harrison: over the last several years. While I've been doing this show, I have been dealing as a patient advocate for 2 people, my father and my cousin to date. My cousin is now an ongoing Alzheimer's patient, and we are really advocating for her

00:29:56.080 --> 00:30:11.500 Frank R. Harrison: to care other than the care that she's already received through her family and doctors. My father is a recovering cancer patient, and today, not today but Tuesday, we got great news that his medication is totally effective and totally working.

00:30:11.670 --> 00:30:24.180 Frank R. Harrison: He'll never be cured, especially at his age, but now he has to know what it's like to live life with the condition in some form of containment, not remission, just containment.

00:30:24.460 --> 00:30:39.769 Frank R. Harrison: Just like I to this day, after 35 plus years of living with epilepsy, have taken a various amounts of medications. Finally, to the point where I have been seizure free for about 17 years, I believe it is other than little minor

00:30:39.870 --> 00:30:45.349 Frank R. Harrison: mishaps here and there, due to a partial lesion that I have on my temporal lobe.

00:30:45.420 --> 00:30:54.689 Frank R. Harrison: but I to this day take medication to keep my energy level as high as possible, so I can live an effective quality of life.

00:30:54.910 --> 00:30:58.139 Frank R. Harrison: Now, what I noticed in my father's example

00:30:58.250 --> 00:31:20.529 Frank R. Harrison: is that his depression is based on missing the kind of life that he once had before the cancer came. I can understand that that's almost like the equivalent of all missing the old days. Now I'm not saying that he is without hope. That is definitely not the case for him. But what I am saying is when I've observed that even during good news moments

00:31:20.720 --> 00:31:26.429 Frank R. Harrison: he has a hard time processing it, because when you're dealing with a whole long period of time

00:31:26.610 --> 00:31:36.780 Frank R. Harrison: of is this medication working? How can I manage these side effects. I'm depressed about the pain I'm feeling, so forth and so on. And then, all of a sudden, a big relief comes to you.

00:31:36.840 --> 00:31:41.790 Frank R. Harrison: It's almost like unheard of. It's almost like a shock to the system, and I can understand that.

00:31:41.930 --> 00:31:46.720 Frank R. Harrison: But it also brings to clarity that depression is really

00:31:46.990 --> 00:31:58.459 Frank R. Harrison: under some form of your own control. It's how you perceive things. So you have to be able to look at the information of your illness and know how to benefit from it.

00:31:58.480 --> 00:31:59.619 Frank R. Harrison: work with it.

00:31:59.650 --> 00:32:07.380 Frank R. Harrison: advocate for it, turn it into a positive, as they say. When you start to look at the situation less internally

00:32:07.730 --> 00:32:23.940 Frank R. Harrison: and more objectively, and see with your knowledge of what you've been through, how you can help others. Believe it or not, that reverses the depression it makes you feel proactive. It makes you feel a little bit of confident. It makes you a knowledge expert.

00:32:24.790 --> 00:32:46.180 Frank R. Harrison: I say the same thing to every guest that I have on frank about health, that after I do the show, I feel such a calm and a relaxation because I've expressed my thoughts. I've had a chance to hear the guests express their thoughts and promote their subject matter, that they may have written about or they have a podcast about or they're advocating for different healthcare issues that are going on.

00:32:46.240 --> 00:32:50.700 Frank R. Harrison: But the point is that is what we are all seeking. We are all seeking

00:32:50.730 --> 00:32:59.340 Frank R. Harrison: that while living a life that has been diminished in some form due to an illness or due to age, or due to just

00:32:59.390 --> 00:33:05.450 Frank R. Harrison: not being fully aware at the time, while going through the crisis, that when you come out on the other side.

00:33:05.480 --> 00:33:19.179 Frank R. Harrison: that's when you take the ownership of your lessons learned, and just go ahead and reinforce for others, so that you can teach the benefit of your experience, and therefore, just by doing that, you don't feel as depressed anymore.

00:33:19.200 --> 00:33:30.130 Frank R. Harrison: So going back to what I was reading earlier about the statistics that a lot of people say that antidepressants don't help, or that they actually add to the depression

00:33:30.850 --> 00:33:34.110 Frank R. Harrison: that's relative that's really depending on the individual.

00:33:34.130 --> 00:33:50.399 Frank R. Harrison: I have been prescribed medication for antidepressants, but I also am taking medication for anti-convulsance, and the mix of the 2 could be a very bad mix. So for that reason I have never taken those prescriptions as offered. You have the right to decline the prescription.

00:33:50.570 --> 00:34:07.180 Frank R. Harrison: and I'm glad that that was the case, because it turned out that some of my anti-convulsant medications had psychotropic properties to help benefit my energy and my focus and my goal setting, all of which, when a person is dealing with seizure disorder, even when they're conscious.

00:34:07.220 --> 00:34:14.230 Frank R. Harrison: a lot of your focus can be segwayed a bit beyond your control. But the medication can help coordinate. That.

00:34:14.679 --> 00:34:22.360 Frank R. Harrison: you know, in the case of my father his medication has its own side effects, and he's learning to treat those side effects accordingly.

00:34:22.409 --> 00:34:32.869 Frank R. Harrison: So by learning to accept what he has is a work in progress. It's better than the alternative. That is something to be happy about rather than depressed about.

00:34:33.719 --> 00:34:46.820 Frank R. Harrison: So the best that you can do for anyone. If you have a loved one, suffering or recovering from some form of cancer. try to do your best to outreach to them and give them a piece of their pass back if you can.

00:34:47.020 --> 00:35:01.649 Frank R. Harrison: You know it is a family sport in recovering from cancer, not just obviously the patient, him or herself, but the children, the parents, the spouses, and of course, any distant relatives, cousins, and so forth, and so on

00:35:02.250 --> 00:35:07.269 Frank R. Harrison: overall. All I can say is one thing that has helped me with depression

00:35:07.350 --> 00:35:09.060 Frank R. Harrison: is advocacy.

00:35:09.210 --> 00:35:18.950 Frank R. Harrison: Some people it is their work, whatever it is that they do for a living. Some people it's entertaining and throwing parties for some people. It's writing a book.

00:35:19.020 --> 00:35:31.650 Frank R. Harrison: you know, so overall when you are given depression, it is not a death sentence, it is a life sentence. It is a warning to take some action and do what you can to help others.

00:35:31.680 --> 00:35:46.440 Frank R. Harrison: It's almost like another statement I heard recently, and it was on another ABC news. Show the view. Basically the woman panelist I'll leave nameless. For now had indicated that the reason why anyone has power.

00:35:47.710 --> 00:35:54.520 Frank R. Harrison: whatever position it is in business and politics, and in your profession in society, whatever

00:35:54.710 --> 00:36:01.590 Frank R. Harrison: is to empower others. So the reason why a lot of people go through illness, especially mental illness.

00:36:01.780 --> 00:36:13.940 Frank R. Harrison: is when you get to the other side to empower those that are still going through it. That is the secret in how you use any of your medical issues that you've come faced with in your life

00:36:14.040 --> 00:36:26.439 Frank R. Harrison: and are able to go ahead and again create a new community out there, and, as they said earlier, engage in community, so that you would be able to live with the illness. But in a positive point of view.

00:36:27.500 --> 00:36:35.679 Frank R. Harrison: All right, I guess that's my little mantra for the for this segment. But another thing to be focused on when it comes to

00:36:35.890 --> 00:36:36.960 Frank R. Harrison: depression

00:36:37.000 --> 00:36:46.859 Frank R. Harrison: that, like I said earlier, the 908 suicide and crisis lifeline basically is a place to go to when you're really struggling, because

00:36:46.890 --> 00:36:56.139 Frank R. Harrison: everything I've just said in terms of community and supporting others has, to begin with, reaching out to people can help you form that community.

00:36:56.480 --> 00:37:01.269 Frank R. Harrison: It is necessary, when dealing with mental and neurological illness.

00:37:01.460 --> 00:37:20.340 Frank R. Harrison: to really engage in various communities and organizations and group conversations. I'm not talking about group therapy. I'm talking about groups that can work together to help each other, and you can live as much as a better quality of life. I also do think

00:37:20.510 --> 00:37:47.090 Frank R. Harrison: that there are those mental health individuals suffering from things like bipolar disorder, or even like I said earlier, Adhd, that does require medication. So I would not say, do not look at antidepressants as a drug not to take. But I would highly recommend, and listening to what your doctor says, and looking at what your healthcare issue is, and if you need to take the medication to help balance you out.

00:37:47.200 --> 00:37:49.240 Frank R. Harrison: I would recommend to go for it.

00:37:49.590 --> 00:38:08.739 Frank R. Harrison: Now the thing is is that a lot of people also know that cannabis hasn't been issued for things not just epilepsy, but for bipolar disorder for Adhd, for increasing your mood. I'm not referring to the Thc version, but in terms of being able to create a medically necessary solution.

00:38:08.780 --> 00:38:16.820 Frank R. Harrison: Cannabis is now being sold today for that very purpose. I know another thing that I would highly recommend to everyone

00:38:16.900 --> 00:38:19.730 Frank R. Harrison: is that stop engaging

00:38:19.850 --> 00:38:20.760 Frank R. Harrison: in

00:38:20.990 --> 00:38:33.559 Frank R. Harrison: media that is not giving you the direct truth. I'm going to leave it at that, because I don't want to be. I don't want to hear any hate mail over any comment, I just said, but sometimes

00:38:33.880 --> 00:38:44.579 Frank R. Harrison: minimizing the amount of noise that you take in helps with your mindset, helps with your sleeping. and helps with whatever you need to do to maintain a balanced life.

00:38:45.010 --> 00:38:53.239 Frank R. Harrison: Now I'm wearing these speakers again, that I have talked with Maury Zalkovich when he's been on the show talking about the Maury method.

00:38:53.250 --> 00:39:21.630 Frank R. Harrison: and even as I'm doing the show with these speakers and listening to the music during the commercial breaks, it is relaxing me. These can be very instrumental for your Alzheimer's issues, your neurological issues. Your mental health issues, sleep issues depression. I've always explained on the show when Mauri's been here, that I have access to all of the files that he's engineered, and all of you can sample them for free by reaching out to me at

00:39:21.780 --> 00:39:25.009 Frank R. Harrison: Frank R. Harrison,

00:39:25.140 --> 00:39:27.780 Frank R. Harrison: Saying where you heard the you know

00:39:28.220 --> 00:39:39.370 Frank R. Harrison: the interview about what it's for. If it was Alzheimer's, or sleep or depression, and I could send it to you, and if you want more information after that fact. If it works for you.

00:39:39.460 --> 00:39:46.790 Frank R. Harrison: Great, if it if it doesn't, then you know it doesn't work for you. But I can give you more information as needed.

00:39:47.030 --> 00:39:58.859 Frank R. Harrison:  again feel free at any time to reach out to me. I spoke to Maury earlier during the week. He now, if you had seen the show that we did together a few weeks ago has created visuals.

00:39:58.980 --> 00:40:05.009 Frank R. Harrison: video files that you could look at that can help with your neurological focus and balance.

00:40:05.190 --> 00:40:13.729 Frank R. Harrison: I would never show that on an episode of Frank about health, because I don't want to traumatize people out there. But as we were discussing it.

00:40:13.890 --> 00:40:22.069 Frank R. Harrison: he is definitely working on something that is going to help all of us really have command over our brain, our neurological and mental health.

00:40:23.360 --> 00:40:28.259 Frank R. Harrison: Well, I think I'm about to go to another break. So when we return.

00:40:28.390 --> 00:40:42.319 Frank R. Harrison: I'm going to summarize a little bit about what I said, and then, you know, over breast cancer, awareness, the mental and neurological health. and then summarize, what's going to be happening in the next 6 weeks right here on frank about health.

00:40:42.380 --> 00:40:50.370 Frank R. Harrison: Alright. So stay tuned to this episode of Frank about health on talk, radio, dot, Nyc. And on all of our socials. We'll be back in a few minutes

00:42:53.940 --> 00:43:12.090 Frank R. Harrison: hey, everybody, I guess. Some of my previous guests are, in fact, watching right now, I just got a nice long text summary from Jeffrey Dimitrack about national depression and mental health screening awareness month. So I'm going to read it directly from my phone. It's more of his insight into it.

00:43:12.120 --> 00:43:18.080 Frank R. Harrison: Thanks again, Jeff, in advance. So I'm quote everything I say from this point is a quote from him

00:43:19.040 --> 00:43:29.769 Frank R. Harrison: for national depression and mental health screening Awareness Month. These are the effects that I found over 100 million people in the us will suffer from an anxiety disorder in their lifetime.

00:43:29.990 --> 00:43:34.339 Frank R. Harrison: Research has also shown something that many scientists didn't expect

00:43:34.380 --> 00:43:39.289 Frank R. Harrison: higher levels of dopamine. The feel good hormone when we're anxious.

00:43:39.310 --> 00:43:55.949 Frank R. Harrison: A lack of being able to distinguish healthy anxiety from anxiety disorders has caused an increase in anxiety, diagnoses with medical professionals. Depression has increased in the younger population because they are confused about their lives. Well, we all know that famous

00:43:56.030 --> 00:44:16.709 Frank R. Harrison: epidemic called teenage years, or a teenager hood or teenage hood that can cause a lot of confusion. But I know that what they've been saying in the media also, and this is just my own comment to what he just said. A lot of overuse of certain social media adds to that body dysmorphia

00:44:16.710 --> 00:44:26.780 Frank R. Harrison: as sometimes emphasize on either Tiktok or Instagram, sometimes even depending on who you're talking to on specific services.

00:44:26.900 --> 00:44:43.460 Frank R. Harrison: You could be talking to the wrong people who are trying to, you know, say nasty things to you, and and imply that you're no good, and and really play with your mind, tho those are the things that parents have to watch for. Social media can be dangerous if it's not used correctly.

00:44:44.030 --> 00:44:51.090 Frank R. Harrison:  identifying the source of your anxiety allows to resolve that issue.

00:44:51.340 --> 00:44:58.040 Frank R. Harrison: The Yale child Studies center encourages parents to help their children work through anxiety rather than avoiding it

00:44:58.060 --> 00:45:18.530 Frank R. Harrison: when listening to loved ones. Stay calm, express empathy, and encourage them to consider the situation from alternate perspectives. Continuing to talk about a single problem with friends or on social media has been associated with heightened depression and anxiety symptoms. So yes, obviously, this is one form of communication.

00:45:18.530 --> 00:45:32.739 Frank R. Harrison: but you need to be communicating with your friends, family, loved ones, medical professionals, to get the reality test of whatever whatever bothers you. Depression can be genetic and can be due to a head injury, for example.

00:45:32.880 --> 00:45:36.270 Frank R. Harrison: But depression is also an interpretation

00:45:36.460 --> 00:45:43.749 Frank R. Harrison: with either the right facts or the wrong facts or a lot of distorted feelings based on past traumas.

00:45:43.840 --> 00:45:45.650 Frank R. Harrison: Sometimes you need a coach.

00:45:45.750 --> 00:45:52.640 Frank R. Harrison: you know whether it is a therapist, or whether it is a someone that you really trust, that you can engage in.

00:45:52.650 --> 00:45:56.850 Frank R. Harrison: engage with and and do your do your best

00:45:56.900 --> 00:46:06.089 Frank R. Harrison: to work through the darkness. It it can be a struggle, a lifelong struggle for many people, but with the right help and the right support

00:46:06.590 --> 00:46:24.789 Frank R. Harrison: it's doable, and I mean thankfully similar with my epilepsy. I found the right support in many different walks of life, and I'm glad to say that I look at my epilepsy as a gift, and I'm using it to the betterment of the community at large.

00:46:24.800 --> 00:46:38.460 Frank R. Harrison: And I'm gonna give a shout out to Sam when we met back in 2,016. You were getting me at a point when my epilepsy was taking me to dark places. But thanks for giving me the platform of Frank about health on your network. And

00:46:38.730 --> 00:46:43.279 Frank R. Harrison: I, for that reason, will continue to be here doing my best to give high quality shows

00:46:43.440 --> 00:47:10.759 Frank R. Harrison: today. This is like a a a trial run, because I know that if I'm ever going to do a news format show again, it would involve at least one other person, probably from the network. That would be great. But maybe I could contact Phyllis again and have her come back and make comments. But that's still a work in progress. I'm just gonna see how the ratings for this particular show come out over the next few weeks. Alright,

00:47:11.270 --> 00:47:29.129 Frank R. Harrison: I think we have another 5 or 6 min. So I'm going to share some updates on our last 3 guests that have been here. I already did talk about Maury, so I'll start with him. And I'm also going to talk about future activities that I'm going to do here on Frank about health.

00:47:29.180 --> 00:47:30.940 Frank R. Harrison: So I'm going to share the screen.

00:47:31.030 --> 00:47:41.340 Frank R. Harrison: And I they're just seen. So I'm going to hopefully. You'll hear me and Logan, if you can't send me messages, or whatever.

00:47:48.680 --> 00:47:52.429 Frank R. Harrison: Okay, as I said, earlier, the more we method.

00:47:52.630 --> 00:47:56.129 Frank R. Harrison: he has an entire website, the Maury

00:47:56.260 --> 00:48:05.339 Frank R. Harrison: this home page about Mauri Zalkovich, the research he's done his own podcast that he's either been on or that he has done himself

00:48:05.430 --> 00:48:09.599 Frank R. Harrison: a blog that he has and how to contact him, but these are the products

00:48:09.660 --> 00:48:16.989 Frank R. Harrison: of which I have the files to give to all of you out there, and his permission to do so. If there, upon request.

00:48:17.860 --> 00:48:19.370 Frank R. Harrison: digital coffee.

00:48:19.550 --> 00:48:27.050 Frank R. Harrison: brainwave, entrainment, sample that helps to ramp up your brain, power, boost your creativity, reduce stress, anxiety, tension and worry

00:48:27.230 --> 00:48:31.790 Frank R. Harrison: revite of mine, which is what he talked about when we were dealing with the Alzheimer's episode.

00:48:32.210 --> 00:48:38.070 Frank R. Harrison: The Quantum Mind method, which is what he just talked about on his last show lady, when he was here a few weeks ago.

00:48:38.500 --> 00:48:47.479 Frank R. Harrison: Quantum confidence. It says exactly what it does. It helps boost your your confidence and tries to remove the root cause of all of your problems and frustrations.

00:48:47.760 --> 00:48:57.750 Frank R. Harrison: Effortless prosperity. One simple habit can become your secret weapon for creating the kind of financial ease and security. You've dreamed of effortless health.

00:48:58.150 --> 00:49:07.660 Frank R. Harrison: This is reducing chronic pain common among all of us as we age. Effortless relationship and love

00:49:08.320 --> 00:49:20.030 Frank R. Harrison: quantum triliminal, new collection. I don't know much about this. I think he mentioned the triliminals. Do a lot of stuff with meditation and help with your sleep as well as help with focus.

00:49:20.270 --> 00:49:23.130 Frank R. Harrison: I guess 2 is the updated version.

00:49:23.660 --> 00:49:28.060 Frank R. Harrison:  had brain prints.

00:49:28.820 --> 00:49:31.979 Frank R. Harrison: There's a lot more stuff here. either way.

00:49:32.210 --> 00:49:35.719 Frank R. Harrison: I highly recommend that you check out his website.

00:49:35.850 --> 00:49:37.770 Frank R. Harrison: and I've already spoken to him

00:49:37.950 --> 00:49:40.950 about being here again. And

00:49:48.340 --> 00:49:49.140 Frank R. Harrison: and

00:49:53.150 --> 00:49:54.380 Frank R. Harrison: Aretha Gray

00:49:55.330 --> 00:49:57.030 Frank R. Harrison: and her retirement house?

00:49:57.120 --> 00:50:00.809 Frank R. Harrison: Ruth Aretha Gray's retirement house while it's not

00:50:02.150 --> 00:50:08.300 Frank R. Harrison: her. And the other 5 members of her retirement house have 5.3 million followers on Tiktok.

00:50:08.430 --> 00:50:17.159 Frank R. Harrison: They have definitely reached mass media. And the reason why I'm thinking about her, especially as we're talking about

00:50:17.240 --> 00:50:29.920 Frank R. Harrison: breast cancer awareness month. And as we're talking about mental and neurological awareness, month as well is because this is an individual who is pretty much a cornerstone in helping.

00:50:30.080 --> 00:50:45.489 Frank R. Harrison: Me! When advocating for a friend a mutual friend of ours in April, and also when she had her own cardiac event in February, if you remember, we had a three-part episode of Frank about health, learning, about plaque removal.

00:50:45.520 --> 00:50:50.200 Frank R. Harrison: all in for cardiac awareness month. and then

00:50:50.730 --> 00:50:54.830 Frank R. Harrison: Jeff to me, track and his stages of epilepsy.

00:50:55.180 --> 00:51:11.640 Frank R. Harrison: Instagram posting. He talks about Sudep, his book, if you remember, he said. His audio book is coming up, coming out around the eighteenth of October in time for Sudep awareness. He has copies of our shows that we've done together, including the most recent one.

00:51:11.940 --> 00:51:21.739 Frank R. Harrison: And he's very much looking forward to eventually having his own stages of epilepsy podcast in the future.

00:51:24.280 --> 00:51:48.810 Frank R. Harrison: These are 3 instrumental people. Especially currently in my life in dealing with personal and family oriented issues, but at the same time they are very involved in their business to help us use our brain power when necessary, to help us look at the positivity of life, to help us manage our neurological health

00:51:48.820 --> 00:52:05.970 Frank R. Harrison: and to continue to advocate as they are doing in their own work efforts. We I see that we have 3 min until end. Thank you again, Logan, for all your help this show of me myself, and I want to say that on tomorrow's episodes

00:52:05.980 --> 00:52:10.320 Frank R. Harrison:, we will have at 100'clock

00:52:10.500 --> 00:52:25.370 Frank R. Harrison: philanthropy and focus with Tommy D. 110'clock will be Steve Fry, and always Friday, 120'clock is intangify with Matthew Asbell closing out the week at 10'clock with the hard skills. And Dr. Mira Branku.

00:52:25.530 --> 00:52:31.600 Frank R. Harrison: She has also been an inspiration in watching her program. I highly recommend watching it to end your week. Right?

00:52:31.740 --> 00:52:42.249 Frank R. Harrison: Also. We will be back next Thursday on Frank, about health. I already believe it or not have 3 possible guests, but I'm not going to promise anything, and hopefully

00:52:42.260 --> 00:52:46.619 Frank R. Harrison: I will have that guest on whoever the one that manages to commit

00:52:46.770 --> 00:52:54.410 Frank R. Harrison:  If you want to see any of the previous shows that I have already announced with Maury, Rita and Jeff.

00:52:54.440 --> 00:52:59.330 Frank R. Harrison: Just check out my Youtube channel which I think for the benefit

00:52:59.690 --> 00:53:03.740 Frank R. Harrison: of the audience. I will share the screen.

00:53:04.600 --> 00:53:06.450 Frank R. Harrison: And you will see

00:53:40.530 --> 00:53:47.449 Frank R. Harrison: I hope I gave you the big overview, and also I want to give a shout out to the 2 shows that are on Thursday before me.

00:53:47.600 --> 00:54:02.129 Frank R. Harrison: That would be obviously Sam Leibowitz and the conscious consultant hour. He is a motivator for me. He's the last show before I come in, even though there are reruns in between. And of course the morning always starts with

00:54:02.470 --> 00:54:15.649 Frank R. Harrison: dismantle racism, and Dr. And Reverend Dr. Tlc. I'm sorry I haven't had a chance to really have her appear on Frank about health. I know she has a show that is doing a good cause.

00:54:15.700 --> 00:54:22.860 Frank R. Harrison: And I just wanted to say to everybody, thank you for my own version of Frank about health news.

00:54:22.990 --> 00:54:35.809 Frank R. Harrison: I was really celebrating. October. We're here in October fifth, and I am always interested whenever they say something is like breast cancer awareness month. And you have other medical fields saying it's really

00:54:35.890 --> 00:54:46.579 Frank R. Harrison: sudep awareness month. So I wanted to cover the basis for everybody, so I'll be back next week, and I will see you all then, if again.
