Scams, Fraud & Private Investigation
Click Here for Podcast: (Available Monday)

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!

Click Here for Podcast: AIR-2014-04-13.mp3

As we get older, our emotional baggage weighs us down, which can lead us to try and suppress stuffed feelings by self-medicating, drinking or with happy endorphins, but they are temporary fixes. Chi Kung Master, Gary Clyman offers a onetime Emotional Liposuction treatment to rid the big emotions: abandonment, anger, rage and bitterness. Sounds a little hocus pocus, well, it is not. Master Clyman has treated over 10,000 patients from all over the world and knows that his Emotional Liposuction is the Cutting Edge in healing. He stimulates specifics and sucks out the issues that interfere with our happiness, relationships and even productivity. Violent change is a good thing because gradual change is so sleepy. One painful visit, for as little as 5 minutes or up to 45 and your negative emotions are gone for good. After treatment, Clyman’s clients notice a difference immediately and many are relieved from aches and pains they have had for years. I guess you could say, no pain no gain and Emotional Liposuction is more than worth, the gain!

Self Sabotage & Weight Loss
Click Here for Podcast: AIR-2014-02-23.mp3

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.

Tart Cherry juice provides 220 natural occurring antioxidants that can impact osteoporosis, inflammation, arthritis, gout, exercise recovery and sleep.

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 Open Enrollment & ACA
Click Here for Podcast: AIR-2013-10-20.mp3

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.

Before and After Disasters
Click Here for Podcast: AIR-2013-10-06.mp3

Natural disasters are the stuff that fear is made of. Norris Beren gives us straight talk on tough topics such as disasters, and none of us are exempt from that category. 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
Click Here for Podcast: AIR-2013-09-29.mp3

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!

Our health is our greatest wealth, and it can take not having it, to realize this is an absolute truth. As health care continues to change, we are starting to realize our overall wellbeing is just as important. My first guest, Debra K, is bringing her new TV show “Journey into Wellbeing” to every state. She knows what it takes to enhance our wellbeing and stay youthful, as David Himmel, Managing Editor of Chicago Health magazine writes about in their Summer/Fall edition. David’s article, Time to Grow Old, states that through the good and bad, it’s by grace that we age. We continue to grow older in every moment, and we also, gain another moment. Our overall health and wellbeing, no matter where we are on our journey, comes down to personal choices, as does, aging with grace.

Unmarried America

Are we becoming a society of unmarried Americans who are getting comfortable with singlehood? Statistics show that one out of every three baby boomers is single. Either by choice, divorce or a loved one passing, there is good and bad news to all of it. The bad news is, there is a concern as to who is going to assist us as we age, if we are single. The good news is, we are realizing we must become our own health advocate, as Joy Loverde points out. If you are married, staying there may be your answer. If you are loving life in singlehood, then you have your answer as well. Heather Wagenhal sees that being married or single is no longer being done one way or the other. It is being done your way, which is, the most important way!

Saying NO with Resiliency
Click Here for Podcast: AIR-2013-08-18.mp3

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!

Our Biochemical Health is effected by everything we eat, drink or put on our skin. All of it enters our blood stream and greatly impacts how our delicate Endocrinology system works. We must support our system with proper nutrition, sleep and exercise to work at optimum levels, as Chiropractic Physician Elizabeth Engel has learned from working with her patients. Our continuous changing hormones and blood sugar levels play another large part in the symphony of our endocrinology system. Integrative Health Coach, Alisa Vitti, fine tunes nutritional needs to impact aging, hormonal changes and overall well being. As our health care system changes, we have a personal responsibility to be accountable for our own health. No doubt, Biochemical Health and micro nutrients are on the cutting edge and will definitely enhance our health accountability!

One out of every five US adults take pharmaceutical drugs to treat mental health issues, which can lead to prescription addiction. Dr. Steven Walker has patients work through their issues to find that no prescription is needed. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Pharmaceutical company propaganda continues to perpetuate the epidemic of prescription drug abuse along with rogue pharmaceutical internet sites. Out of 10,000 pharmaceutical sites, only 3% are legitimate, as Carmen Catizone, Executive Director of the National Association of Pharmacy Boards discusses. Our country has a prescription epidemic dilemma with one death occurring every 24 minutes, by pharmaceutical grade overdose and many of those from internet sites. If you feel you are addicted, get help before it is too late. If someone you love is addicted, never give up and do the same for them!

Courage is a natural energy force that propels us beyond our fears into a realm where anything is possible. It sounds easy, but often, fear grips us and we get stuck. Sometimes we can get stuck for years and are not able to do anything about it. Tanya Chernova and Joanna Andros, co-authors of “UnderMIND” write about seven subconscious beliefs that sabotage our lives and how to overcome them. With work and daily practice, we can re-program our beliefs and impact our lives. It is a fact, as we age, brain fitness is as important as body fitness and we are learning to measure our joy per minute, which is another important health check. A great place to start with learning to re-program is to simply, change your words, and you will change your life!

Blame it on fashion icon, Coco Channel. In the 1920′s, she came back bronzed from a south of France holiday. It then became fashionable to be bronze. Close to 100 years later, we know, that  a bronze look may no longer be as fashionable, with skin cancer being the fastest growing type of cancer. Skin care expert, Celeste Hilling says to avoid sun exposure during the strong 10-2 hours, wear sunscreen every day, reapply it every two hours if possible and exfoliate your skin often. Exfoliating helps moisturize our skin and renew skin cells. Protecting our skin from UV rays comes down to common sense or maybe done the Aussie way. They practice, “Slip, Slap, Slop”. They slip on a shirt, slap on a hat and slop on some sunscreen, practicing safe sun daily down under, as we should everywhere!

The Trust Gap
Click Here for Podcast: AIR-2013-06-23.mp3

Trust has been the common thread in past generations, honoring right and wrong responsibly in all relationships. We instinctively knew this was the fabric that bound us together. Today our world view is much more self-centered with trust being less fashionable. Trust – or lack of it – is inherent in every action that we take, and effects everything that we do. Professor Clete Bulach offers five factors to develop openness and trust. It can be improved on and as with anything, it takes work. Jackie Camacho Ruiz, started working on some of those factors when she was only 5 years old. She now uses them daily as a successful entrepreneur. Without trust and openness we flounder and achieve less. Simply said, honor your word, value your reputation and trust and openness will follow you.

Distracted driving has become an acceptable risk that is taken all too frequently. Cell phones are the most common distraction although; there are a number of others. Statistics show that texting and driving is as fatal as drinking and driving as Nick Jarmusz, AAA Safety Representative says. In fact, you are 23 times more likely to be in an accident if you are texting while driving. If you are elderly and not willing to give up your keys it can also be just as risky. Something else to consider with car safety is vehicle maintenance. Pam Oakes, National Automotive Authority knows firsthand that the smallest of details can make the biggest difference with maintenance and car safety. Never forget when driving a car, you are operating a machine and rarely if ever, are the only one on the road.

Cathy teaches how to identify a potential attacker and the best evasive measures to take if you are attacked. The FBI reports that crime continues to grow with over 5 million victims annually and self defense education is growing as well. We are realizing that personal safety is an individual responsibility and we must take initiative to protect ourselves and our loved ones.
