So many magazines are now, only available on line.  Skip Weiss, publisher of Chicago Health magazine knows well that people still enjoy reading an actual magazine. As a semi-annual publication Chicago Health provides progressive health articles. These articles are highly accessible to the everyday reader, in print or online. Chicago Health 2014 July edition, featured articles are about Cancer diagnosis and research. Expert guest, Dr. Michael Nishimura talks about cancer research and why we are in very interesting times. Soon, the FDA may approve  a new drug for skin cancer. This drug could very well open doors for additional cancer drugs and therapies. Could chemotherapy and radiation, one day, be a thing of the past?  We can only hope, and if it is, Chicago Health magazine will most likely, be writing about it long before it happens.

Chances are caregiving will directly or indirectly cross your path at some point in your lifetime. The demands on 65 million US caregivers can be overwhelming, especially if they feel they are in over their head or elderly themselves. President and Founder of Partners in Senior Care, Patricia Menoni knows very well why it is best to hire a professional caregiver. One very important factor is it allows a son or daughter to visit with an aging loved one and enjoy time together. Timing and warning signs are also important, as Angie Landmesser, Director of Business Development discusses. Angie says that we need to become a home care detective, asking the right questions before bringing any caregiver into a home. The good news is, we are starting to realize that hiring a professional caregiver is our best bet and Partners in Senior Care is a great place to start.

We have learned that, most of the time, losing weight comes down to calorie intake and how you burn them. Seattle Sutton, President and Founder of Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating takes the guesswork out of eating healthy and losing weight by providing fresh meals that are either 1,200, 1,500 or 2,000 calories. Rene Fisek, leading nutrition expert at SSHE says there are misconceptions about weight loss, and small details daily can make a big difference. Sue Kiefer, winner of the SSHE 2014 contest, lost 58 lbs in 4 months. Sue’s competitive nature helped, along with eating SSHE 1,200 calorie daily program, and exercising.

The fastest growing segment of our population are the centenarians who are living to be 100 years old along with super centenarians who are surpassing them at 110+. Different factors come into play with longevity such as genetics, life style, diet, exercise, staying social and many little things that can make a big difference. Emeritus Community Relations Director’s and expert guests, Mary Beth Beatty and Janet Cannon see many reasons why seniors are thriving. At Emeritus communities, it is the socialization, activities, a nutritional diet, friendships, sense of play and so much more that their residents experience. Isolation is a high risk for the many seniors who end up alone. They are much better off in a retirement community in their elder years. Participation has always been a function of health and Emeritus Communities offer that and so much more!

Sugar, the Bitter Truth
Click Here for Show Podcast: AIR-2014-05-04.mp3

The truth about sugar is much more than bitter. Sugar is an addictive, low grade toxic poison, just like any other addictive substance. The average person eats a minimum of 1/2 cup of sugar per day, which is overkill and on the low end. Expert guest, Bonnie Minsky, says that sugar addiction is bio-chemical and has very little to do with will power. We eat sugar and crave more, as the vicious cycle continues on. Combining foods properly can lower our glycemic index and help level sugar intake, which can greatly impact our health, as Holistic Health Coach, Brenda Hilander teaches. The less sugar you eat, the less inflammation you have and the stronger your immune system will be. The sweet bottom line is, you will live a healthier life without an abundance of, or any sugar!

Over 3 million consumers a year fall prey to scams, along with 10 million identity theft victims. These numbers are not going down, as elder law attorney, Kerry Peck sees firsthand. Kerry says that many senior citizens become victims of scams because they are the most vulnerable. Criminals are aware of this, and know that elder seniors are less likely to report a scam. They do not report scams for fear of looking foolish or being moved into a nursing home by family. Private Investigator, Bruce Graham, says that it is best to always follow your gut. If you have a doubt about something that may sound too good to be true, you are probably right. Contact your local authorities, hire a P.I. or reach out to those close to you, because it is best, when in doubt, to do without!

When we say that we want something, then go about making sure it doesn’t happen, this is self-sabotage. Weight loss and self-sabotage can go together making it difficult, if not impossible, to reach our goals.  Guest, Tim Shurr, says we must learn to use our inner resources as we develop emotional intelligence to obtain our goals. Even if you are on track with your weight loss goal, medical reasons can slow down your metabolism, making it much more difficult to keep weight off once it is lost. Dr. Joseph Mazzei, says that inflammation is one of the biggest reasons our metabolism becomes sluggish. You can optimize your metabolism by balancing your hormones, reducing inflammation, eliminating toxins and finding out what food sensitivities you may have. Once this happens, you are on your way to reaching your weight loss goals as you put self-sabotage on the back burner. 866-962-5689

Baby boomers & seniors today are aging but not growing old, as seen in today’s first guest, Cathi Watson. At age 80, Cathi exercises daily, is a performer, blog talk radio host, author and speaker. With a mission is to change the world’s perception of aging now, Cathi is doing just that! Gerontologist, Lori Campbell says that age is measured chronologically, biologically and psychologically. Biological Telomere testing gives us clues to one’s longevity by checking cellular aging. Results can show that with a few minor changes in nutrition and or lifestyle, a longer and healthier life is highly possible. As we progress with cutting- edge technology, we may not only predict disease, but be able to prevent it. This could allow longevity and well being to go hand in hand naturally as the centenarian population continues to grow.

Loving Yourself & Others

How about a year of loving yourself? When we learn to love ourselves, loving others, occurs more naturally. Self love is not familiar to most of us. We do not wake up and think about all the ways we are going to love and care for ourselves. For most, this feels unnatural and selfish to even consider taking care of ourselves first. Sue Elliot, Founder & Chief Editor of the Law of Attraction Magazine and a Three Wishes Coach, knows the value of self love. Sue suggests practicing small steps to learn to self love. Shift your experiences in a way that’s not just powerful, but truly self-empowering and self honoring. Become a better person for yourself and others as you keep practicing making 2014 an extraordinary year!

There was a time when medical doctors were respected with resolute trust. This has changed partly because years ago medical research and development was a much slower process.

Dr. Mike suggests working with your doctor in a complimentary way, while doing your own research. The fifth edition of Life Extension’s Disease Prevention and Treatment book gives you 130 evidence based protocols to combat the diseases of aging. With thousands of scientific articles and clinical experiences from physicians around the world this 1,400 page book is a great place to start. Learn all that you can and practice being your own health advocate now. Chances are, it will be, the way of the future.

It is time to deck the halls and hopefully with no falls. Every year according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention an estimated one third of adults, 65 years and older experience a fall. These falls are the leading cause of injury related deaths among seniors. Dr. JoAnn Fletcher, Aging in Place Specialist, knows how little changes in your home can make a big difference with safety. Paula Levy, Co-Owner of AP-Lifeline says that having a Medical Safety Alert, if an elderly loved one is alone and falls or needs help, is the answer. Paula and Joann have some great gift ideas for the holiday season. If the gift is being bought for an elderly loved one, it is not only their gift. It is a peace of mind gift for the entire family and so well worth it!

Alzheimer’s is one of the cruelest diseases to humanity and heart wrenching to families. More than 5 million people have this dreadful disease and it cannot be prevented, cured or slowed down.  Kerry Peck, Managing Partner of Peck Bloom Elder Law Firm knows it is in your best interest to have legal documents in place, either before or right after an Alzheimer’s diagnosis. Without legal documents, it is much more likely family breakdowns, sibling rivalry and much more occurs with Alzheimer’s care. End of life documents are very important as Peck Bloom Partner, Tim Ritchey says. An elder law firm, such as Peck Bloom will simplify your legal document process. Best of all, you will be taking care of your loved ones, and hopefully, long before your documents are ever needed.

Aging Successfully
Click Here for Podcast: AIR-2013-10-27.mp3

As with any success, aging is not exempt from the work it takes to accomplish what it takes. A ten year study on aging verified what we already know: to age successfully we must, avoid disease, maintain high cognitive and physical function, and stay actively engaged in life. It sounds so easy, but the problem is, most of us do not think about aging in our younger years. We start thinking about it in our sixties and sometimes not at all. Keep in mind, at age 65, living to 85 means that you still have 23% of your life to live or 7,300 days left. We have the time and ability to age well even as we retire. Simply put your plan in place, stick with it and make 85 look young as you become a centenarian!

Medicare recipients have the opportunity to shop and compare their Medicare and supplemental plan annually, during open enrollment. This is the time to make sure, you are paying fair market price for what you are getting. Original Medicare and Medicare Advantage Plans can vary greatly. Medicare supplemental plans, A – N are the same, with the only difference being the monthly premium and provider. The ACA has little to effect on Medicare currently, which is music to the ears of seniors. David Wylly, your Medicare Solutions expert will review your current plan or one that you are considering, to make sure that you fully understand, what you are choosing and why. Taking time annually to do this, can provide you with the coverage you need, put extra dollars in your pocket and be well worth your time. 630-809-9758

Norris knows how beneficial it is to have plans in place, both a before and just as important, an after plan. It is natural to not want to think about a disaster, much less prepare plans. We so often live our lives with the false assumption, it will never happen to us. Natural disasters put us in place on a fairly regular basis, letting us know the planet, not humanity, is in charge. It takes so little time to plan ahead and it can give you peace of mind, rather than wishing you had of, in the aftermath of a disaster.

Affordable Care Act

The Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare, will change health care as we know it today. The Affordable Care Act is 2007 pages long with 17,000 new regulations. Geriatric expert Ron Kauffman says it has too much grey area. Open enrollment begins October 1, 2013 and goes through March 31, 2014. Everyone will be required to have health insurance or pay a penalty tax in 2014. The penalties get higher in 2015 and cap out in 2016 at even a higher rate. The IRS will manage ACA to ensure that you are paying your penalty tax if applicable. It will take time to become familiar with the Affordable Care Act, and what we have learned so far could already be changing. Many in our government completely disagree with parts or all of ACA. It could be delayed again and time may be on our side, for this one!

Many people find it very difficult to say NO. It may be out of anxiety, feeling uncomfortable, wanting approval, fear of not being liked…and the list goes on. Steve Olsher, Founder of Reinvention Workshop, talks about the power of YaNo’s. He sees very little grey area with yes and no. Steve believes that the better you know yourself and what you are up to, the easier it is to be straightforward with a yes or a no. Being resilient from the reactions you may get from a no, is another step to becoming who you were meant to be. Learning to acknowledge the negative and still develop a positive perspective, as Dr. Erica Kosal talks about, is moving in the right direction. Sometimes, it’s best to pick yourself up, dust yourself off and just keep moving forward!
