Healthy by Nature radio show THIS WEEK

Sunday May 14 is Mothers’ Day. (Happy Mother’s Day, Moms!) What if a woman is pregnant but did not plan to be one NOW? There are some topics we are apparently just not supposed to talk about (like outpatient treatments for covid-19 and abortion!) But if there are health issues that need airing out, HBN will do that…here we go: My first guest, Nurse Angela, will explain what she sees daily in her hospital’s high-risk labor and delivery ward. She sees serious complications such as molar pregnancy (definition) / (link to story); ectopic pregnancy (definition), and sepsis from water breaking early (details) / (link to story). Angela’s state has very strict anti-abortion laws that keep doctors from solving these life-threatening problems. May 6-12 is National Nurse Appreciation Week (I think that should be every week.) Angela has been in nursing for 26 years as an emergency room nurse, a CareFlight nurse and for a few years, a nanny (for an A-list singer) whereby she got some hands on mothering experience. A pregnancy is sometimes terminated because prenatal testing shows that the baby has a horrible even life-threatening diagnosis. For information on such pregnancies, visit this website and this movie may be of interest: Made with Love the Movie. My next guests are Tonya Thomas, Executive Director of the charity Pregnancy Help 4 U (PH4U) and the organization’s nurse practitioner, Nurse Jill. (Note, during the show we didn’t mention that testing for sexually transmitted diseases is also available for the fathers.)  For information on Abortion Pill reversal, visit this website,  To search in areas outside North Texas for the types of health services we discussed, visit To support PH4U you can Donate. In the opening segment, I discussed Stem Cell therapy. For the free consultation, call (800)507-6509 and say you heard about it on the radio.

The things I do for you!…


Strokes are a big and growing problem. In this week’s blog I discuss what you need to know to protect yourself and those around you. I also tell the story of my own stroke.

Since it is allergy season, I asked our friends at Ionbox for a special on their negative ion generators. They kindly agreed. Get 10% off any order using the code HBN. Go to

“I was thinking about how people seem to read the bible a lot more as they get older, and then it dawned on me—they’re cramming for their final exam.”

 LAST WEEK Show Follow-up

LISTEN to that show in the archives.

We discuss detoxification (“spring cleaning”?) with Kate Rhéaume, N.D. She is expert in natural medicine and regularly appears on television and radio teaching about a variety of health topics. She is licensed in her native Canada as a Doctor of Naturopathy. Dr. Rhéaume is the author of one of my favorite books: Vitamin K2 and the Calcium Paradox–How a Little-Known Vitamin Could Save Your Life. It is an important topic that we discussed during this archived interview. Dr. Rhéaume is also an educator and spokesperson for Natural Factors Nutritional Products, which is Canada’s largest manufacturer of nutritional supplements. (Natural Factors is also a popular and respected nutrition supplier in the US.) During this week’s show, Dr. Rhéaume recommended The Dirty Dozen”, a reference to which foods are most important to buy as organic.
