STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • August 17, 2022, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention director Dr. Rochelle Walensky publicly admitted the agency’s COVID response “fell short,” and that an internal reorganization has been launched to improve response times and data sharing, and to make health guidance easier to understand.

Michelle Svensson and the Sherwoods discuss Big Gov, Big Pharma collusion to ban effective covid treatments

(Natural News) Michelle Svensson, one half of the Resistance Chicks, talked to Drs. Mark and Michelle Sherwood about the conspiracy between Big Government and Big Pharma to bar truly effective treatments. This prohibition, she added, facilitates money being funneled into the pharmaceutical industry.

Svensson, who hosts the Brighteon.TV program “Headline News: The Resistance Chicks” with her sister Leah, sat down with the “SherwoodTV” hosts during the New York City (NYC) leg of Clay Clark’s ReAwaken America Tour.

According to the Sherwoods, governments have instilled fear into people for two years under the guise of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Vaccines and drugs such as remdesivir were touted as the solution to the pandemic, but they did not address the fear instilled into people. This fear, they claimed, is even more detrimental than the disease itself.

Moreover, this fear of “real evidence” – which turns out to be fake – will take people out of the roads as they buy into the COVID propaganda. (Related: Vaccine-induced “herd immunity” DOES NOT EXIST: German government admits that 95% of omicron cases are in fully vaccinated individuals.)

The “SherwoodTV” hosts added that there are large numbers of people who suffer from complex, chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer and mental illnesses. Conventional medicine practiced by most physicians focuses only on the symptoms. Furthermore, specific prescribed treatments such as drugs or surgical procedures only aim to treat the immediate problem and not the root cause.

“Today, we understand the whole system is flipped,” Mark said. “Doctors are trained by pharmaceutical-driven funds that drive the business.”

Mark revealed to Svensson that he had two big things in mind: Get rid of all self-imposed chronic sicknesses and diseases, and eradicate the overuse of medications.

“I didn’t say medications are bad, but you know, the body doesn’t have a medication deficiency. [We’ve] got to fix the foundational issues and really get to the root of the problem, which is what helps people heal,” he said.

Functional medicine follows holistic approach to treating diseases

Mark shared that he was removed from the traditional medical system as he was getting people well. This led him to establish the Functional Medical Institute (FMI) in Tulsa, Oklahoma with his wife Michelle.

“I opened a clinic where our main mission is to walk people down that pathway of healing,” he said.

According to the FMI website, the clinic “focuses on complete healing instead of disease management, with an emphasis on healing the root cause and preventing disease recurrence. “Our view of health emphasizes the state of the entire being and its ongoing development and continual change,” it added.

The Sherwoods explained to Svensson that functional medicine is still a science-based medical practice, but with an emphasis on the patient instead of the disease. This patient-centered approach allows functional medicine to address the whole person, not just the symptoms of the disease they have.

Functional medicine practitioners, they added, listen to their patients and their stories. They then help their patients to delve into the discovery process, with a view to helping them take ownership and control of their health.

Adhering to the patient-centered approach, medical practitioners then provide treatments based on their patients’ unique needs. For the Sherwoods, they work through seven foundational principles that start with nutrition, exercise and sleep.

CAPTURE THE CHILDREN: Biden administration greenlights funding for “full-service” community schools in a bid to sideline parents

Image: CAPTURE THE CHILDREN: Biden administration greenlights funding for “full-service” community schools in a bid to sideline parents

(Natural News) The Biden administration permitted new federal tax funding for so-called “full-service” community schools, which seek to replace parents in the aspect of child-rearing.

The Oak Avenue Complex, formerly the Highland Springs High School in Virginia’s eastern Henrico County, is one such full-service community school that reopened. It underwent an upgrade over the summer to become the first such facility in the Old Dominion. Oak Avenue Complex is set to provide local students with onsite medical and dental care, mental health services, tutoring, adult classes and general education degree classes.

Henrico Education Foundation CEO Mike Taylor said the nonprofit is working with partners to expand what can be done in a school to create a space where families can access convenient services. He added: “After all, our schools are everywhere. Why not make them the center of this work because it’s easier for families to access the services?”

Adrienne Cole Johnson, chief of family and community engagement for Henrico County Public Schools, said: “If we have resources on site [and] if students and even families can get to them faster, there are fewer barriers for them to have access. Students excel more because they know that they’re supported, and they don’t have to worry about some of those basic day-to-day needs.”

The Oak Avenue Complex and other full-service community schools formed part of the Biden administration’s plan, through the Department of Education, to outline how school districts can spend their pandemic funds under the American Rescue Plan. Districts will have until September 2024 to decide how they, with the involvement of parents, will spend the money. The Education Department provided a checklist to guide parents during the conversation with their local school districts.

Brighteon.TV

“I’m encouraging schools and families to reach a new level of communication and transparency together to make sure our students and educators are getting the support they need,” said Education Secretary Miguel Cardona.

The checklist includes information on how funding grants can be used to support student learning, address the needs of the whole child, ensure COVID-19 health and safety and even help districts engage families. Under each of these topics, the Education Department outlines specific strategies that serve as best practices for the districts.

Critics denounce community schools as displacing parents, churches

Critics of the grants expressed worry that the federally funded “full-service community schools” seem to displace parents and churches while making government schools the center of community life. These institutions are taking over everything, from mental to dental health to nutrition and community service under the guise of helping students.

They also posited that federal mental health schemes usually represent a massive subsidy to big pharmaceutical companies that will see more young people being diagnosed with mental illnesses.

This can lead to the over-medication of children with quack labels and providing intrusive services to families. The grant also aims to “diversify” schools’ mental health professional workforce. (Related: The dumbing of an age: America’s public schools are failing, and here are the facts to prove it.)

The Education Department explained that these schools seek to “meet the social, emotional, physical and mental health, and academic needs of students” by providing what they call wraparound services.

These will give students access to health care and nutritional assistance, tutoring and enrichment opportunities and mental health support and violence protection programs.

Moreover, Biden’s national mental health strategy primarily targets school children and their families. The administration is asking congress for over $125 million over the next 10 years to subsidize his plans – $1.25 billion in total.

Home prices could crash by 20% next year, expert warns

Image: Home prices could crash by 20% next year, expert warns

(Natural News) Financial and real estate market experts are warning that housing prices could crash by at least 20 percent by 2023.

Mark Zandi, the chief economist for financial services firm Moody’s Analytics, is forecasting a massive crash in housing prices. Zandi correctly predicted in May that housing activity in America would plummet through the summer, and prices in the more bubbly markets like Flagstaff, Arizona, Boise, Idaho, Charlotte, North Carolina and Austin, Texas would begin falling. (Related: New single-family home sales plunge to 6 1/2 year low as mortgage rates and housing prices continue to rise.)

He further warned that, once the recession fully hits the United States, housing prices in nearly half of the regional housing markets could plummet by at least 20 percent. If the recession doesn’t impact the American economy fully, housing prices are still expected to fall between 10 to 15 percent.

Zandi added that the entire U.S. housing market could suffer a nationwide pullback in prices of around five percent, regardless of a recession.

Housing inventory in the U.S. is at its highest level since April 2009, as many real estate agents struggle to get rid of listed properties due to soaring mortgage rates and home prices.

Many regional housing markets “overvalued,” ripe for crashes

According to Moody’s, 183 of the country’s 413 largest regional housing markets are “overvalued” by 25 percent or more as of August.

Boise, Idaho, is by far the most overvalued, where the current average house is worth $526,050, or almost 72 percent higher than the average. This is followed by Charlotte, North Carolina, where home prices are 66 percent higher at $406,137, and Austin, Texas, with 61 percent higher housing prices than the average at $661,337.

Brighteon.TV

Flagstaff, Arizona, is overvalued by 61 percent, with average home prices of $668,845. Nashville, Tennessee, is overvalued by 54 percent and has housing prices of $460,447. In Miami, Florida, housing prices are overvalued by 34 percent at $552,082.

Moody’s analysis only has a handful of places around the country where housing prices are considered undervalued.

The most undervalued city in the country is Decatur in central Illinois, where the average house costs $92,129, or around six percent undervalued. It is followed by Montgomery, Alabama, where the average house costs $135,742, or 2.6 percent undervalued, and Grant’s Pass, Oregon, where housing prices are undervalued 3.1 percent at $418,440.

Consumer confidence in the real estate market is plummeting, indicating that more Americans believe a recession is on the way. The Fannie Mae Home Purchase Sentiment Index shows that consumer confidence has reached its lowest point since 2011.

“Surveyed consumers continue to express pessimism about home buying conditions, with only 17 percent of respondents reporting it’s a good time to buy a home,” it said in a release. “Meanwhile, the percentage of consumers believing it’s a good time to sell has begun ticking downward in recent months, falling from 76 percent in May to 67 percent in July.”
