52. You have the right to remain silent
52. You have the right to remain silentEPISODE NOTESWho determines the truth? Despite resistance from physicians fearing government overreach, California’s Medical Misinformation Bill AB-2098 was passed in the state senate and enrolled on September 1, 2022. This bill now sits on the desk of Governor Newsom for veto or signature into law. If signed into law, discussing the risk vs. reward of Covid treatments with patients could be labeled “misinformation” and put physicians at risk of losing their medical license. On today’s podcast we debate truths and the role of the scientific method.  AB 2098 Take ActionIf you are in a crisis or think you have an emergency, call your doctor or 911.

5. Do Antidepressants even work? (Rebroadcast)
For the last two months we have had a number of insightful conversations on psychiatric medications and harm caused by the overprescription of drugs. A good way to close out those episodes is to reshare one of our very first episodes to simply answer the question, “Do antidepressants even work?” Originally published in July of 2021.------------When a product is launched in a particular category we expect it to satisfy an unmet consumer need or perform as intended. Shampoo, caffeinated coffee, or running shoes. If the product doesn’t work, it won’t sell. How often are we scrutinizing our use of pharmaceuticals? Instead, we rely upon the recommendations of our healthcare providers. What if those drugs don’t work? And, what if the established guidelines for standard of care are flawed. On today’s podcast Roger, Kelly and Sean discuss the efficacy of antidepressants and the subjective process used by doctors to apply the label of “depressed” on us all. If you are in a crisis or think you have an emergency, call your doctor or 911. If you're considering suicide, call 1-800-273-TALK to speak with a skilled trained counselor.RADICALLY GENUINE PODCASTRadically Genuine Podcast Website Twitter: Roger K.

42. Antidepressant induced homicide
In 2011, a paper was published in Pharmacogenomics and Personalized Medicine examining the relationship of antidepressants and akathisia side effects in those with genetic mutations in the metabolizing genes of the CYP450 family. In the study, eight of the subjects had committed homicide and many more became extremely violent while on antidepressants. On today’s podcast we welcome one of the co-authors, Christopher Crotty, and subject, David Carmichael, to share their stories.Twitter: Roger K.

Parenting during this period can be overwhelming if you do not have the core values to guide you.
