Noam Chomsky – Threats to Peace and the Planet

Noam Chomsky – Threats to Peace and the Planet – 2 Part CD Package
Why are so many people all over the world out in the streets demanding change? What are the root causes of revolt? What about U.S. Syria policy and the betrayal of the Kurds? And BDS and Palestine? How do we overcome sectarian differences? Why are Americans so afraid? Eco-disaster and nuclear war threaten human existence. The former garners some attention because of the surge in youth-led activism but the latter is out of sight even though the dangers are escalating. The U.S. pulling out of the INF ballistic missile treaty and new Pentagon hypersonic weapons increase the possibility of catastrophe. What about impeachment and the 2020 election? These are just some of the topics Noam Chomsky talks about in this exclusive two-part interview.

Noam Chomsky, one of the greatest intellectuals of this era, practically invented the field of linguistics. In addition to his pioneering work in that field he has been a leading voice for peace and social justice for many decades. At almost 91, he is the scholar/activist par excellence. As rock star Bono called him, he is “The Rebel Without a Pause.”

Fred Harvey, Medical Director

Internal Medicine, Geriatric Medicine and Functional Medicine

In medical practice in the American “health care” paradigm since 1996, Dr. Fred Harvey has mastered a synergistic east meets west, internal and functional medical practice that few physicians have mastered. With an encyclopedic comprehension of the human body and mind, Dr. Harvey’s intellectual brilliance has ignited thousands of patients to achieve & maintain optimal wellness.

Dr. Harvey’s medical educational and experiential path has been extensive. He is a passionate advocate of wellness, teacher of functional medicine, a lifelong student, and trusted collaborator. He currently teaches his patients and seminar students what their individual bodies need, how the physiological functions operate, and then designs individual lifestyle plans that are not hindered by lack of proper nutrition, intake of non-foods or absorption of harmful chemicals. With a strong focus on preventive care and wellness, Dr. Harvey offers obtainable treatments for complex health challenges in people of all ages. Dr. Harvey provides extensive, specialized one-on-one care starting with the microbiome. He listens intently and provides thorough consultation, accurate diagnosis, testing and treatment within his one to two hour appointments.

Harvey’s philosophy is to prevent disease rather than treat random symptoms by template matching a set of medical insurance codes. For this reason, Dr. Harvey stepped away from the Insurance companies and Medicare’s binding red tape that limited the HCIM consultation and has championed a wellness focused; self-pay practice promoting individual care plans. The way all medical care should be – comprehensive, unhurried and individualized.

Having served the community since 1989, Dr. Harvey’s passion for health led to his professional relationship with the premier nutraceutical (supplement) manufacturer Xymogen, Inc. As a founding member of Xymogen’s Board of Advisors, Dr. Harvey has developed specific nutritional formulas and presents workshops and seminars to educate medical professionals and patients worldwide.

The Harvey Center specializes in Internal Medicine, Geriatric Medicine and Functional Medicine. For more information or to schedule an appointment please call The Harvey Center for Integrative Medicine at 941-929-9355, located at 3982 Bee Ridge Road, Sarasota, FL 34233.
