“The medicalization of American life from birth to death is killing our souls.”
– Hattie Bryant
As much as we all want to believe we can live forever, we all know deep down that it simply can’t be true.
From this program viewers learn that there are things each of us can do to live fully, all the way to the end. Anyone who is willing to take four simple steps now, while healthy, can minimize if not avoid entirely, the pain, suffering, confusion and disagreements that can arise when end-of-life healthcare wishes are not clearly spelled out.
Americans need this information because 70% say they want to die peacefully surrounded by friends and family … while actually 70% are dying in institutions surrounded by strangers.
Few people choose to contemplate critical illness or the inevitability of death until their time comes. Because possibilities are rarely discussed, many people are unprepared or unable to make critical end-of-life decisions and spend their last days in over-medicalized and unnecessarily painful and protracted situations.
Breaking through the taboo of discussing death, Hattie Bryant shows that we have choices. Inspired by the peaceful death her mother was almost denied, Bryant began gathering information from national experts in palliative care, geriatrics, oncology, bio-ethics, psychology, and spirituality. I’ll Have It My Way credibly and passionately presents the case for personal responsibility in the healthcare, legal, and procedural decisions that all of us must make – if they are not to be made for us.
By making our wishes known and communicating them effectively, we remove the burden from our loved ones of making our choices for us that will enable us to live our lives more fully to the end. I’ll Have It My Way provides useful information and a thought-provoking four-step guide that takes the viewer on a journey of discovery to learn what a life well-lived means to them.
The program is produced by Ellyne Lonergan of GlassOnion Productions (BrainChange with Dr. David Perlmutter, 30 Days to a Younger Heart with Dr Steven Masley, Road To Perfect Health with Brenda Watson, and many others). The pledge event was produced by KQED with Greg Sherwood as host and Hattie Bryant in the studio.
Dr. Perlmutter’s Whole Life Plan
Welcome to Dr. Perlmutter’s Whole Life Plan.
Dr. Perlmutter puts his ideas into practice in the real world to show you that living your best life is about much more than what you put in your mouth. It expands upon the core advice in his previous programs and introduces exciting new information about the advantages of eating more fat and fiber, consuming fewer carbs and protein, evicting gluten forever, and catering to your intestinal flora.
Food is a central component of the program, but so are other key aspects to achieving the best results: the timing of when you eat, sleep, and exercise; knowing which supplements to take and which medications to potentially drop; reducing daily stress and even chemical exposures in your physical environment; nurturing relationships and your own self-care; addressing the challenges in life with grace and ease; routinely creating goals for your personal development; and finding time for the kinds of physical activities that power the brain while healing the body.
This beautiful series immerses the viewer in the nature of the northern extremities of Europe, beyond the Arctic Circle and into a land of ice and fire; from the Tundra and on to the Arctic Ocean. Wildest Arctic captures the awesome cinematic range of the Arctic region, from the crashes of vast glaciers, to the howls of the wildest wolves and the haunting remoteness of this true wilderness.
We find wolverines, lynx and leopards in the Taiga (Russian for “forest”); polar bears and whales in the Arctic Ocean; Arctic foxes and Atlantic puffins in Iceland; and follow the 2,000 mile migration of 500,000 caribou in the Tundra.
This is the arctic as you’ve never seen it before: surprisingly rich in wildlife and completely – beautifully – wild!
