Supporting Children Through COVID-19


Supporting Children Through COVID-19

~ Gwilda Wiyaka ~

 “NOOOOO! I don’t want to go to the Doctor!” My grandson wailed.

“But honey, you have strep throat. You need medicine to get well. You have been to the doctor before. Why are you so upset this time?” his mother asked.

“They will test me for COVID and it will be positive. Everyone will hate me and they will lock me up at home forever!”

Where do kids come up with these things? Well, the truth is, they are sensitive. All the adults around them are freaked out and no one can agree on anything.

Is COVID-19 a hoax or a grand conspiracy? Is it biological warfare and we are all doomed to die? Is it a scheme to vaccinate us all with tracking chips? No wonder the poor children are confused and frightened.

We speak about returning to normal, but how normal can it be with a generation of children suffering from PTSD?

How can we mitigate the trauma to our children during this pandemic? How can we reassure them when we ourselves are so unsure?

 With us this hour to explore the effect of COVID-19 on our children and how to support them through it is Laurie Marshall. Laurie is the author of “Beating the Odds Now – Ten Steps to Meet the Standards and Still Love What You Do.” Laurie is a certified Social Studies and Art teacher with 35 years’ experience in public, alternative and private schools. She is a bully prevention, project-based learning and arts integration specialist. A mother of two sons and a grandmother, she is passionate about supporting parents and teachers in these unprecedented times.

Hidden Killers: COVID-19, Inflammation, and Diet

  Hidden Killers: COVID-19, Inflammation, and Diet 

~ Gwilda Wiyaka ~

During this special COVID-19 series featured on MISSION: EVOLUTION Radio, many scientists and medical doctors interviewed have pointed out a startling fact. Ultimately, it is not the coronavirus that people die from, but rather their own body’s overactive inflammatory response to the disease. This brings up the pertinent question; what causes inflammation and what can we as individuals do to mitigate it?

To explore this matter, we invited a gentleman I have had the pleasure of interviewing before, Dr. Steven Gundry. Through an interesting turn of events, Dr. Gundry has made it his career to uncover the inflammatory basis behind ill health and the foods that cause it. He is a cardiologist, New York Times best-selling author and medical researcher.

During his 40-year career in medicine, he has performed over 10,000 heart surgeries and developed life-saving medical devices.

His book, “Dr. Gundry’s Diet Evolution,” instructs how to heal and avoid surgery through diet. His second book, "The Plant Paradox," a New York Times bestseller, outlines a 90-day plan for some of the world's most pressing health issues.

Dr. Gundry practices medicine at his Center for Restorative Medicine and International Heart & Lung Institute in Palm Springs and Santa Barbara, CA.

TRANSMUTATION: Alchemy for a World in Turmoil


TRANSMUTATION:  Alchemy for a World in Turmoil

~ Gwilda Wiyaka ~

Alchemy is defined as the process of taking something ordinary and turning it into something extraordinary, sometimes in a way that cannot be explained. It was the medieval forerunner of chemistry, based on the transformation of matter. Historically, alchemy was mainly concerned with attempts to convert base metals into gold or to find a universal elixir.

At this time, we are in desperate need of transforming our current challenges into a positive outcome. If ever true alchemy was needed, it would be now.

What is alchemy from a modern-day perspective? What is spiritual alchemy? Is alchemy a genuine possibility or just superstition? If it is real, how can we engage it to help us now?

With us this hour to discuss the power and application of spiritual alchemy is UK-based author of  “The Secret of Alchemist,” Colm Holland. Colm spent twenty-five years working in sales and marketing in the publishing industry. He was a member of the Harper Collins team which published Paul Coelho's “The Alchemist” in 1993. Colm teaches the art of spiritual alchemy in business and relationships. He is an experienced columnist and his interviews and articles are highly entertaining, full of humor and deep insights to help others find true empowerment through inner transformation.
