“Since the 1990s Opioids Have Threatened Millions Worldwide with Addiction & Misery”
America’s catastrophic opioid crisis, which is repeated in many regions of the world, was recently addressed on the globally syndicated VoiceAmerica weekly talk radio show, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Water Life Science®/Nature’s Pharma®, The Power of Water® & Your Health.
This class of drugs incorporate the illegal drug heroin, as well as legal synthetic opioids and pain relievers. As the legal medications can cause unwelcome side effects, some patients can suffer from mental health issues, thereby becoming depressed and anxious, ultimately exacerbating the problem.
Kleyne’s guests included Steven Rotter, M.D., who specializes in internal medicine, and boasts over 30 years experience in helping addiction and opioid abuse patients; and Nancy Yonally Coleman, a health management consultant and corporate trainer from Oregon, who has in excess of 40 years experience helping people with addiction and opioid abuse.
Kleyne, the well known Water Life Science® founder, and Dr. Anita Chen Marshall, who has attained two doctorates (pharmacy and oriental medicine), discussed the clear and present danger of addiction on VoiceAmerica last year, in a broadcast entitled: Seeking Addiction and Disease Cures. Speaking about the massive benefits of drinking good quality water, Marshall warned listeners about the pollutants in the food and drink we consume: “Water can help flush them out of the body”, she noted. Moreover, Kleyne stated she believes that, later down the line, research will show that all addiction is generated by glucose and sugar addiction.
The Link Between Addiction & Our Environment
In the latest radio program, Kleyne highlighted the fact that we are serious polluting the planet’s atmosphere: “The earth’s atmosphere is our life, and earth’s oceans are becoming garbage dumps. Addiction is over-evaporation of body water loss”.. Speaking about addicts’ “remission,” she stated that she wants: “better education generally, and physicians to be better educated about addiction. They must discover how to save more lives of people who are addicted”. Certainly, there should be mandatory training programs for physicians, who have such a crucial role to play in eliminating this crisis.
Finding a Workable Solution
It is a tough road to success in terms of funding and educating people, but at the present time, Coleman is working wonders by leading a multifarious drive towards winning the fight against opioid addiction. She says: “To have any success at all, there must be ownership of the problem at every level—locally, regionally, nationally, internationally. We are working together with law enforcement, politicians, schools, doctors, parents, and clergy to find solutions”.
Rotter is calling people’s attention to some exciting progress regarding a fairly new clinic in Grants Pass. It is working on an innovative program for pregnant women, with a focal point on newborn babies who have drug-addicted parents. – A very worthy and necessary project, indeed.
