Michael Edelman, National Political Analyst and Pundit shares his thoughts on the following issues from 10:30-11am.
- National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins on Sunday said that while much is still unknown about the Omicron coronavirus variant, “there’s no reason to panic” yet but more data is needed.
- A federal appeals court has temporarily blocked an order requiring all California prison workers to receive the COVID-19 vaccine or have a religious or medical exemption. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday approved a request for a stay of the order pending appeal. The vaccination mandate was set to go into effect by January 12, 2022, but the stay blocks enforcement until March, AP reports. What may be deduced is the courts desire for imposing a stay until January 2022?
- Dr. Anthony Fauci, the U.S.’ top infectious disease expert on ABC Sunday said that Americans should be prepared to do “anything and everything” including lockdowns to fight the spread of the new Covid -19 variant Omicron.
- The U.S. Supreme Court will engage in what will seem like a showdown over abortion rights this Wednesday. Will the court reaffirm the constitutional right to an abortion or wipe it away altogether. What is the driving force behind a few cases that come before the court in this regard?
- The national debt limit needs to be raised this week, but Republicans have advised they won’t be casting votes in approving passage of the bill. We make inquiry into the ramifications of such conduct.
- There has been growing tension between V.P Kamala Harris and United States Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttegieg for the 2024 presidential nomination if Biden choses not to run for a second term
- What is the takeaway regarding the January 6th Commission’s subpoena of Roger Stone and Alex Jones
- What is the likelihood of former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows being held in criminal contempt for refusing to appear when demanded?
- How deep was the Trump family involvement in the January 6th coup attempt?
Dr. Eugene Lipov, M.D., Trauma and PTSD expert advises that an estimated 7.7 million people suffer from PTSD. Additionally, approximately 8% of the total population of the U.S. is prone to developing it in the future. Furthermore, about 6% of the population will have PTSD at some point in their lives. PTSD is often characterized by hyperarousal and avoidance of risky, potentially aversive behaviors. However, trauma can take many forms, and can be far removed from the inciting incident, plaguing patients for years, sometimes making it hard to identify.
Dr. Lipov is a pioneer of the Stellate Ganglion Block (SGB) medical procedure, used to treat post-traumatic stress injuries. The SGB, in combination with psychotherapy, shows an 80% effectiveness rate in patients to whom it has been administered. Because of his development of Stella’s SGB procedure, the Dual Sympathetic Reset, Dr. Lipov has been called the “Einstein of modern anesthesiology” for his work developing the SGB treatment for PTSD. A longtime researcher into the biological sources of trauma, Dr. Lipov will comment on the different types of stress disorders and PTSD, as well as suggesting treatment options:
- Complex PTSD is caused by multiple traumatic events and may be diagnosed in adults or children who have repeatedly experienced traumatic events, such as violence, neglect or abuse.
- Uncomplicated PTSD is most common as the event that caused PTSD can be pinpointed. The symptoms include trauma reminders, nightmares, flashbacks, and irritability changes in relationships.
- Acute Stress Disorder is an intense and dysfunctional reaction beginning shortly after an overwhelming traumatic event and lasting less than a month. If symptoms persist longer than a month, the condition can develop into post-traumatic stress disorder.
- Comorbid PTSD it is estimated that up to 80% of PTSD patients have this disorder, with the most common comorbidities being depression, anxiety, alcohol addiction, and substance abuse. The disorder symptomatology and substance abuse need to be treated separately. From -11-11:30
