Because I believe so strongly in him and the work he is doing, I wrote this blog post to help you "meet" this inspiring fellow. I believe "knowing" him a little better may just encourage you to support him as well. :)

(Now for the long version...) :)
Here is my "Richard Sacks changed my life" story:
One day I got an email from a fellow named Richard Sacks, who told me he appreciated my videos and would like to interview me for his radio show, Lost Arts Radio. He had an upcoming show with John Kohler (someone I greatly admire) and thought it would be a good fit to have me as the second guest.
I was very honored, and of course happy for any chance to share my story with a wider audience. I checked out Richard's website and was very impressed with the sorts of important topics being covered, and happily agreed to chat with him about doing an interview.
Richard told me he was very busy, but would squeeze in some time to chat with me after one of his meetings. When we got on the phone, he apologized for the tight schedule and explained that he was trying to track down information on some new policies being put into place that would no longer allow stores to carry RAW nuts...that the FDA wants all raw nuts to be pasteurized (killing the valuable nutrition inside).
As a raw foodist, I listened interestedly as he continued on to discuss a history of FDA policies that have been promoted as health-enhancing and protective, but that actually are entirely the opposite. I already knew about the scandal around the polio vaccine (check out the book Dr. Mary's Monkey or YouTube lectures by Dr. Tent), so I remained fascinated by the information he was sharing regarding doctors and scientists who had been killed, discredited, or forced to sign insanity papers because their work exposed the blatant dangers and devastating effects of vaccines.
Long story short, we covered a wide range of topics in about an hours' time and by the end of the conversation, I was in tears and grateful beyond words for this stranger-become-friend who had contacted me out of the blue to be on his radio show.
The most important part of that conversation for me was that this scientific person, who had gleaned so much from 50 years of research and learning from world experts on health topics...believed me about my Morgellons. He already knew all about it. And he didn't even know I was dealing with it; he had only contacted me because he had seen my diabetes videos.
Not only did he validate my experience with what he had learned from his scientific investigation, but he also let me know that I did not need to be afraid or angry about it. He encouraged me by saying that the evil that is happening in the world will bring out the best in those who refuse to succumb to it. There was much more, but suffice it to say, I felt not only validated, but also uplifted, encouraged, and empowered by this intriguing character. And I was eager to hear more of what he had learned.
On the night of my interview, we talked more, this time with the producer/engineer, Doug Diamond. It was again, an incredibly eye-opening and unbelievable conversation. What amazed me about these fellows was that they were not some conspiracy theorists with their heads in the clouds. They had scientific evidence, data, facts from people who had direct experience and knowledge with this crazy, unbelievable stuff going on in the world. No conspiracy theories; this stuff was REAL.
I cannot explain how my heart was just busted open and full after "hanging out" with these two guys on a Skype call for a few hours.
For a person with the crazy symptoms of Morgellons...colored fibers coming out of the skin, feeling strange electricity-type movement throughout the body, feeling hair moving all the time, observing with my own eyes (countless times) hairs moving on their own, right in front of my eyes, no air movement at all...life can become quite scary.
Add to that how many people have called me delusional and crazy, telling me it's all in my head (when I have documentation of the colored fibers and movement to show plainly it is not) and life can become rather a crazy nightmare.
On top of that, nobody having any real explanations for what it is or what to do about it. Some have believable explanations about a problem with heavy metal toxicity or lyme disease co-infections and altered DNA. But what about the moving hairs? Somebody give me an explanation for that!
Unfortunately, anyone with any kind of explanation about the moving hairs is called a conspiracy theorist, so obviously those explanations aren't valid. So what's a person to do? Slowly but surely go insane, I suppose...
Enter Richard and Doug and Lost Arts Radio. Not only do they believe me about Morgellons, but they actually have a guest on talking about it the following week, and how she has overcome it! And more guests on following weeks with scientific evidence about the origin of these crazy moving fibers, and explanations for what they are, based on documented scientific observations.
Do you know what this does for a person in my shoes? Can you say r-e-l-i-e-f? Answers, finally! And it's not a conspiracy theory! I am not crazy!!! And my experience is shared by countless others around the globe.
Richard and Doug both welcomed me to be in contact at any time with questions or if I needed anything, and BELIEVE ME, I have taken them both up on it! I talk with both of them quite frequently, continuing to learn from the world experts on their show, asking follow up questions from information they share, and becoming more and more enlightened and "awake".
I've now done video interviews for my YouTube channel with both Richard and Doug, where they have graciously shared their own stories and knowledge they've gained through years of research with my viewers. I've gotten to know their motivations and character, and I can tell you what...these men make me cry.
They are men of honor, men of solid character, men of courage. They selflessly share their time to research and record a weekly radio program for absolutely no pay; simply because they feel called to be of service to the world. They speak up courageously, despite the fact that people don't like to hear what they have to say, constantly calling them conspiracy theorists.
And guess what? They both care about humanity so much that they continue to press on to help a humanity that is begging to be left ignorant and blind to the catastrophic practices being imposed upon us from those who do NOT have the best interests of humanity in mind. They have facts, proof, eyewitnesses, "whistleblower" testimonies, scientific analyses...they don't need validation from anyone because they know the truth, and they refuse to allow this truth to be suppressed.
In spite of the shocking things I am learning by listening to Lost Arts Radio Show, I am amazingly NEVER scared or depressed when I listen. All throughout, Richard's positive, humorous, peaceful, and calm demeanor as he interviews the guests helps me feel uplifted, empowered, and inspired to use this newly-acquired knowledge to serve my fellow man and make a difference in this world. He keeps me laughing too. He is a funny guy! :)
In my conversations with Richard about various related topics, I've been impressed by his character again and again. He is not afraid to admit when he's been wrong. He encourages others always to think for themselves, to use REAL science, not let anyone dictate what is true or not true. He seeks for all people to encourage one another and work together; to appreciate our difference and learn from one another instead of tearing others down.
He works full-time making the Lost Arts Radio show happen each week, researching and working with guests, doing all the behind-the-scenes stuff we don't know about during the 3-hour show. He does it because he believes he is on this earth for a purpose, and he is out to fulfill that purpose. He is out to help others heal from disease, become free and self-empowered. He is out to change the world with love.
I just recently learned that he's been working on this PhD program, to get a degree in health sciences, to learn what is being taught in mainstream medical courses, to know his stuff. He plans to use his degree to be better equipped to help the world. Because we all know that those with "titles" are given more of an "ear" than those without. What he knows from his independent health research helps people heal from disease; not simply maintain the condition and soften symptoms. Part of his dream is to bring this knowledge into the wider medical community.
Like many of us, Richard hates to ask for money, and is only doing a fundraiser because some of us urged him to. His loan money has run out, and he either loses those 5 years of work and thousands of dollars, or he finds a way to pay for the final 2 years. As mentioned, he makes nothing from his radio show.
With things continuing to spiral out of control in this world, I believe we need Richard and Doug's show more than ever. We need the vital information they are sharing. There are other shows that share this kind of information, but Lost Arts Radio is special, because it's not gloom-and-doom. It is a show that brings out the best in those who are listening.
Richard knows this, and it is why (I believe) he refuses to stop the work on his show. He trusts that the money for his degree will come from somewhere. He is doing what he feels called to do.
To give you an idea of his character, I should tell you that I mentioned to Richard that maybe we should not include the geoengineering part in the fundraiser video. I said maybe people would not want to contribute if they thought he was a crazy conspiracy theorist.
Richard's reply was that he would rather tell the truth and not be like the people he talks about on the show, who make decisions under the influence of money and power. He said if people don't want to give, knowing what he does, then he guesses that isn't where the money for his degree is supposed to come from.
What a guy! I tell you what, he and Doug both are continually surprising and inspiring me with these sorts of responses and evidences of some amazing and courageous character.
I'm sure there's tons more I could say, but I'll end it here with this conclusion:
Richard Sacks is one of THE most inspiring, selfless, courageous, loving, integrity-based individuals I have ever met. He has changed my life. He makes me cry most times I interact with him because his way of living touches my heart so deeply and inspires me to be a better person. He is a good man; one of the best men I have ever had the privilege to know.
He is changing the world, and I consider it an honor to give back to him in any way I can. I hope that reading this has inspired you, has touched something in your heart, has encouraged you to support Richard and the work he is doing.
If you have been blessed by my life and would like to give back to me in some way, please consider doing so by blessing my awesome friend Richard Sacks with some help to finish his PhD.
As someone once did for me, I'd encourage you to even give a dollar, if that's all you can give. If everyone gave a dollar, it would still add up to something that could bless Richard. I know every dollar donation blessed me because it meant another person out there in the world showing support in a tangible way.
Thanks so much for taking the time to read this.
You can show your support for Richard by donating here:
Another way to show your support and help Richard would be to share his GoFundMe page link and/or this blog post, or even his GoFundMe video. Helping to spread the word about his campaign would be a HUGE gift!
And please do check out Lost Arts Radio. Listening to the programs and making a difference right where you are would be such a blessing to Richard.
Thanks so much for helping me to help a friend who deserves all the love and support the world can give. <3
