happy healthy child dvdWouldn’t life be easier if you just knew how to raise your kids? No endless hours on the internet, frantic calls to friends and family, expensive and tedious appointments with doctors and experts, stacks of books to collect?

There certainly aren’t many parents who can claim to navigate the challenges of family life and child rearing with the trifecta of wisdom, grace, and evidence-based research, but Sarah Kamrath is one of them.

Tune in to hear about her path to parenting from a space of inner knowledge, informed by her experience as a parent, researcher, writer, filmmaker, doula, and yogi:

  • What is a parent’s most important parenting tool?
  • What are top priorities for a healthy pregnancy and birth?
  • What information is needed to avoid unnecessary interventions?
  • Why kundalini yoga, what is it, and how did it change your marriage and parenting?
  • How is your parenting different from what you read and see in the mainstream?
  • Tell us about your goals and approaches for educating your children? How do they like it and how does it impact their social lives?
  • What hopes do you have for humanity when it comes to parenting and family life?

Do you view parenting as largely a fear-based exercise?

Left to their own devices, will children revert to a Lord of the Fliesethos?

Are kids inherently naughty and boorish?

Were you raised by time outs, consequences, spankings, or behavior charts?

Do you believe they’ll be grateful for your firm hand and “tough love” when they grow up?

What if the strict rule-oriented adversarial, “manipulation not friendship” parenting model isn’t quite right for your kids?

vibrational healing jacketWe know that the human body is an amazing information gatherer. The nervous system zings when confronted with a menacing stranger; and our olfactory nerves delight in the aroma of freshly baked cookies.

But what about the other body — the one that resides outside of the physical? Often referred to as the astral body, the spiritual body, or the soul — how can accessing this realm of our existence enhance our lives? These days, it’s no longer considered fringe to visit a medium, medical intuitive, or a host of other practitioners who journey to these higher planes. Our deepest desire is to understand just a little bit more. to find resolution from a painful experience, to heal.

#85 — Essure Dangers: Permanent Birth Control Pain ** October 7, 2015
Host // Lisa Bloomquist

Essure SE picture

Essure is a kind of non-surgical sterilization that was approved by the FDA in 2002. Since then, three-quarters of a million women have signed up. We’re talking about the insertion of metal coils inside the fallopian tubes, which is supposed to prevent hookups between egg and sperm.

A one-time, hassle-free procedure. Modern technology has surely improved upon the IUD of yore, right?

It sounds simple enough.

So, why are thousands of women complaining of:

  • debilitating pain
  • weight gain, hair loss
  • depression, brain fog, fatigue
  • flu-like symptoms
  • digestive disorders
  • occluded fallopian tubes
  • unintended pregnancies
  • did we mention the pain?

These thousands of women are joined by consumer activist extraordinaire, Erin Brokovich who set up the Essure Procedure.net website to encourage more women to come forward and share their stories. The legal system isn’t open to these women because of something called “federal preemption” of class III medical devices. But these women aren’t taking this lying down. They’re making so much noise, challenging manufacturer Bayer AG, that the FDA is taking another look.

Lisa SaenzLisa Saenz is a 46 year-old mother of 4 daughters and 2 grand children. She is a licensed Social Worker and currently works as a Crisis Intervention Social Worker with high risk patients addicted to opiates. Her background includes 23 years as a patient advocate for the mentally ill. As a victim of these awful devices, she joined and helped promote the Essure Problems Facebook page. This led to her current role as a passionate patient advocate for women’s health and reproductive safety.

lisa-bloomquist-fb-headshot-cropLisa Bloomquist is a patient advocate who was injured by Cipro in 2011. She runs Floxie Hope, a fluoroquinolone toxicity advocacy site, and manages The Fluoroquinolone Wall of Pain. Lisa is a guest blogger for Hormones Matter and Collective Evolution, and hosts The Floxie Hope Podcast. Lisa has vowed to continue to screaming about the dangers of fluoroquinolone antibiotics until those in the medical professions start paying attention to their Hippocratic Oath, until proper informed consent is established for administration of these drugs, and until physicians stop giving them to children. Lisa is a Colorado native who enjoys the mountains, Pilates, and her cat. She has a BA in Economics from Colorado State University and a Masters in Public Administration from University of Colorado, Denver.
