Click Here for Podcast: (Available Monday)

February is “Love” month with Valentine’s Day being one of the holidays. This day gives us the opportunity to acknowledge and appreciate those in our life that we love. Not everyone may have that luxury. Many could be grieving the loss of a loved one and this time of year triggers more grief. Expert guest, Dr. Jamie Turndorf, also known as Dr. Love, says that we can make peace with the deceased and reconnect with them.

This allows us to travel through grief more easily, knowing that love lives on. Dr. Jamie’s book, “Love Never Dies” is guaranteed to give immense hope to those grieving the loss of a loved one. It could also very well be the most perfect Valentine’s Day gift for anyone grieving.

Vitamin D Facts
Click Here for Podcast: AIR-2016-01-31.mp3

Vitamin D, often called the “sunshine vitamin,” is an important nutrient and perhaps one of the most underrated. It behaves like a hormone in the body, playing a crucial role in supporting and maintaining bone health. Expert guests, Dr. Wayne Cichowicz and Dr. Dan Richardson point out that sunshine must be absorbed into the skin to receive the benefits of Vitamin D, as they discuss the many ways to maintain and build strong bones. As pointed out, vitamin D must have D3 in it, if taken in capsule form. In addition to vitamin D3, by adding calcium and magnesium you have a trifecta that will greatly support bone health. Weight training fitness is another factor that will help build strong bones. Many medications deplete vitamins which should also be considered when taking a pharmaceutical drug for anyone to have optimal health!

Healthy Eyes & Ears
Click Here for Podcast: AIR-2016-01-17.mp3

At or close to the age of forty, our vision and hearing may start to weaken. We could already wear contacts, glasses or readers and may have assumed we never would. Exercising the eye is just like any other part of the body. The exercises can help maintain healthy vision and possibly even eliminate the need for glasses. Expert guest and Natural Vision Educator, John Monroe knows this well after teaching Dr. Bankers Self Help Vision Program for twenty years. You should also have your hearing checked at about age 40. Many factors today add to hearing problems that were not there years ago. Expert guest and Doctor of Audiology, Dawn Heiman discusses the problems and why baby boomers are much more likely than past generations to wear hearing aids. The good news is, hearing aids today are so small you can barely see them!

Contagious Emotions & Heart
Click Here for Podcast: AIR-2016-01-10.mp3

Emotional health and wellbeing is important for you and for those who are close to you. Expert guest, Dr. Ron Podell says our emotions spread from person to person, especially within families and marriages. Positive emotions can inspire and lift us up and negative emotions may do the opposite. Many times we are unconsciously aware that we are mimicking and matching the moods of others. Dr. Toni Luisa Rivera, guest and author of, “A Propelled Heart”, teaches that our emotions play a vital role in healing or causing illness. Awareness and listening to our body’s messages can cause healing on a much deeper level. Dr. Toni listened to her body’s physical pain that allowed her to unlock wounds of the past. This is possible for everyone; it can be done and will impact the quality of your life, forever!

The Future of Social Security
Click Here for Podcast: AIR-2015-12-13.mp3

We have approximately 55 million people receiving some type of social security income today. With the large demographics of aging Americans and less people in the work place, social security income where it is today, may not be this way, in the future. When Social Security started in 1935, the retirement age was 65. The financial burden did not seem so great with a much shorter life expectancy. Today our life expectancy continues to increase with the largest growing segment of our population being centenarians. Living past 100 years old was not expected when social security started. The policy makers in Washington keep putting their heads in the sand about our social security problem which is leaving fewer and few options. The risk being, in the future, Social Security Income will no longer be the backbone of our retirement!

Robots & Device Addiction
Click Here for Podcast: AIR-2015-11-29.mp3

The robots have landed in the workplace – they’re expanding skills, moving up the corporate ladder, showing awesome productivity and retention rates while they increasingly shove aside their human counter parts. Guest, Nile Nickel, a technical and social media expert, agrees that robots are stealing our jobs, although there will be a need for robotic engineers. The job loss could cause an economic collapse as intelligent machines begin the march on labor. Another side to technology is it is becoming an untreated addiction as guest, Robert Bakke talks about. The internet can cause addictive behaviors. Many people cannot go a day without deeply pondering the net or being on social media. It is strange to watch people walk around and even in their cars, unable to look up. Not only is it strange, it is dangerous in more ways than one.

Thousands of years ago, “The Toltec” were known throughout southern Mexico as the masters of wisdom.

Though it is not a religion, it honors all spiritual masters who have taught on earth.

There is a better way to live and “The Four Agreements” are the roadmap which offers a powerful code of conduct. These agreements can rapidly transform lives to new experience of freedom, true happiness and love. Best of all, you will be living as an enlightened, peaceful warrior!

The Sandwich Generation
Click Here for Podcast: AIR-2015-08-02.mp3

As people are living much longer than ever expected, we have five and six generation families which are changing everything. Today’s caregivers are being called, the “Sandwich Generation.” As the family dynamics forever change, care is needed for aging loved ones, children who are still at home and adult children who may be boomer ranging back to the nest. This would create havoc, in any household. Expert guest, Dr. Cheryl Woodson says it is important to set boundaries and hopefully early on, as family dynamics change. In a perfect world this would be possible, but, the demands many times take precedence. Expert guest, Cindy Laverty sees caregiving from another perspective. Cindy says that everyone matters and we must have a life that lights us up. Being selfish is not bad as it keeps all of us responsible for what is happening to us and in our lives. If we take ownership for our role as caregiver and take care of ourselves, we can then choose to live our life and light it up!

Caregiver 101
Click Here for Podcast: AIR-2015-07-26.mp3

A family caregiver averages 21 hours per week caring for an aging or disabled loved one. Like firefighters, family caregivers tend to stomp out one flaring crisis after another, and other family members may not see any of the challenges. This is when hiring a professional is needed, along with knowing important facts. Every state has different licensing and every caregiver agency needs to be compliant, licensed and bonded with their state. Basic business questions are also just as important. Expert guest, Angie Landmesser, with Partners in Senior Care, suggests finding the best agency with Home Care Pulse. Partners in Senior Care, has been awarded “Leader in Excellence Award” two years in a row by Home Care Plus. You can find the best professional caregiver agency by doing your homework and accepting the gift of care, which will provide better care and peace, to everyone involved!

Vitamin D Facts
Click Here for Podcast: AIR-2015-07-19.mp3

Vitamin D, often called the “sunshine vitamin,” is an important nutrient and perhaps one of the most under rated. It behaves like a hormone in the body, playing a crucial role in supporting and maintaining bone health. Expert guests, Dr. Wayne Cichowicz and Dr. Dan Richardson point out that sunshine must be absorbed into the skin to receive the benefits of Vitamin D, as they discuss the many ways to maintain and build strong bones. As pointed out, vitamin D must have D3 in it, if taken in capsule form. In addition to vitamin D3, by adding calcium and magnesium you have a trifecta that will greatly support bone health. Weight training fitness is another factor that will help build strong bones. Many medications deplete vitamins which should also be considered when taking a pharmaceutical drug for anyone to have optimal health!

Sixty-Four & So Much More
Click Here for Podcast: AIR-2015-07-12.mp3

Sixty-four today is entirely different than it was decades ago. Expert guest, Sumner Davenport is turning sixty-four this year and she feels it is different than she ever expected. Sumner points out that she has no attention on her chronological age. Sumner says, forget your age and life your life as stress-free as possible. You will feel better by doing so. Life expectancy continues to go up with people living into their hundreds, as they thrive, not just survive. Author & guest, Rick Bava wrote the book “In Search of the Baby Boomer Generation”. It is not only a snap shot of the Baby Boomer generation, it is also a political overview of how they arrived where they are at. Then again, it is no surprise, considering Baby boomers have always pushed the envelope. They will continue doing so, as they reinvent aging, on their own terms, which could very well be, 85 and so alive!

Guest, Sally Pacholok is the B12 misdiagnosis whistleblower and an ER nurse. Sally sees the same problems repeatedly from B12 deficiencies.

We all hear the terms living trust, land trusts, power of attorney property, power of attorney healthcare, last will and testament, living will and with all of these legal forms, comes confusion. Statistics show that only one out of every three people who are over the age of fifty, have their legal documents in place. Confusion, cost and not knowing where to begin are some of the biggest reasons why they are not in place. Guests, David Lanciotti and Nancie Dorjath, give us clarity into some of the terms and which documents are needed. As always, knowledge is keyand more importantly, so is, learning what is right for you and your needs. Take baby steps as you learn along the way or better said, one document and moment at a time!

With open hearts, people and business owners take it up a notch for our soldiers and veterans, as they offer their goods, services and more.

No matter what they may be going through, have compassion. No large wound heals over night. They all, take time to heal. It could be your continued support that helps them through the tough times.

Celebrating Seniors

In 1963, President John F. Kennedy designated May as “Senior Citizens Month”, which later was renamed as “Older Americans Month”. May is the month to celebrate older Americans for their contributions to their community and nation.  Oak Park, River Forest and Forest Park, Illinois have taken it up a notch with “Celebrating Seniors. This year, the week of May 14th – May 21st , days start early and end late. They are filled with entertainment, food, hobbies, educational seminars, resources and more provided by the community and volunteers. Another unique event is the “Sixty over Sixty Club”. Sixty senior citizens over 60 years young are chosen for being extraordinary while making a difference. With centenarians being the fastest growing segment of our population, it is fair to say, the “One Hundred over One Hundred Club” may not be that far away, which is a beautiful thing!

Alcoholism and addiction are chronic diseases, just as cancer and other diseases are. Many people do not see it this way when a person falls into relapse, after being in recovery. Guest, Scott Stevens, points out that it is life stressors that trigger high levels of cortisol and often trigger an addict into relapsing. Learning how to not self medicate during stressful times can keep and addict in recovery. All is not doom and gloom, as sweet sobriety can also give you a brand new life. Author, BJ Gallagher, teaches others how to reinvent themselves. Her book, “It’s Never too Late to Be What You Might Have Been” is a little book with a big message. It reminds us that as multi-dimensional empowered beings, we can dream at any age and make good on those dreams, starting right now!

Long Term Care Insurance
Click Here for Podcast: AIR-2015-04-12.mp3

Many people think that long term care insurance is only for the elderly, and that it’s very costly. Both of these are a myth. Policies being purchased today are a part of estate planning and very affordable. A chronic illness or injury, at any age, could put heavy financial burdens on a family. People think that they are covered by their employers. Chances are, they are not and are referring to short and/or long term disability. If you are healthy and in your 40’s, 50’s or 60’s, now is the time for long term care insurance. Guest, Matt McCann has been helping families in 38 states, since 1998. His only focus is on long term care insurance. As Matt says, once the house is on fire, it’s too late for insurance. Don’t wait, call Matt McCann!

Family has been known to be one of the biggest sources of stress during holidays. The reasons are many, as expert guest, Dr. John McGrail talks about. John suggests using a powerful tool called, “The Art of Allowing”. By letting people be, you have minimal expectations and much more freedom. Also keep in mind, if they bother you, you most likely, bother them. Guest, Amy Morin, a LCSW suggests choosing to have a great day and staying focused on being that way all day. No matter how your Easter happens, keep it all in perspective. Every holiday has a beginning, middle and end and goes fast. The best thing you can do is leave in peace with a little extra chocolate and joyful memories, knowing you are, who family wanted to be with!

Stressed Out
Click Here for Podcast: AIR-2015-03-29.mp3

It is a fact that 53% of health problems are sourced by stress. It erodes our health and impacts everything in our physical and mental being. Stress management is the key. Automatic behaviors cause additional stress and can create havoc in our lives. Guest, Kate Silver sees stress as a growing problem and feels mindfulness can help to manage it. Holistic Health Coach, Claudia Braun suggests learning to say no and asking for help. Both can help to diminish stress. Daily stress causes increased worry and irritability which goes in a vicious circle and serves no one. Learning to relax, rest and de-stress helps promote optimum health. If we practice de-stressing daily and learn to walk away and regroup when needed, we may diminish stress and best of all, bring joy back, abundantly!

National Kidney Month

March is National Kidney Month, the time to raise awareness and education. We have 31 million U.S. residents living with chronic kidney disease which gives us 31 million reasons for National Kidney Month. Kidney disease occurs when conditions damage the kidneys and keep them from filtering our blood properly. High blood pressure and diabetes can lead into kidney disease and should be monitored closely. It is common for CKD to not show signs, until stage five, which then calls for dialysis or a transplant. Our four guests discuss kidney health, the American Kidney Fund, being a kidney donor and care giving for a sister before and after a transplant. Awareness and education help to empower those living with CKD and the challenges that come with it. Learn more at www.KidneyFund.org or at Chicago Kidney Action Day, August 26, 2015.

It is a fact that more than 100 million Americans suffer with chronic pain. Many are or become addicted to prescription medications to ease the pain. Expert guest Dr. Daniel Twogood has been practicing for over 30 years in eliminating chronic pain. He says that it is what we stop doing instead of what we start doing. Eliminate specific foods and within 90 days your pain is gone! If this sounds too good to be true, it is not. Guest, Harris Glasser opted out of surgeries for his son 45 years ago as he tossed out all medications. The doctors and surgeons thought he was crazy. His son got better within five days and is well, to this day. We are what we eat and our bodies can naturally heal when treated right. The great news we are all realizing this and all with a common goal, vibrant health!

By 2050, it is predicted that we will have over 600,000 centenarians. Longevity shows that it is a fact, only 25% of aging is genetic. The remaining 75% is about attitude and lifestyle, as expert guest, Jamie Silver talks about. Jamie says a positive attitude and willingness to learn while discovering new, keeps us interested in life and promotes well being. Ageless living is about courageous living, or as Jamie says, change your words and change your life. A little tweak here and there and an attitude with gratitude, can make all the difference, as we live ageless and longer, than we ever thought was possible!

B12 & the Supplement Pyramid
Click Here for Podcast: AIR-2015-03-01.mp3

Consumers are offered thousands of choices for vitamins and supplements. Some are attached with words such as organic, natural or certified along with packaging of foods, claiming they are the health superstars with vitamins added. So many choices create confusion and uncertainty. Guest, Sally Polochok, an ER nurse, sees many misdiagnoses that she knows come from B12 deficiencies. B12 greatly impacts our health. It is so important to know if you are deficient in B12, especially as we age. Dr. Michael Smith’s book, the Supplement Pyramid, simplifies how to build your personalized nutritional program. Start with the basics, a multi-vitamin, Omega 3, Co-Q10 and a pro-biotic and add levels based on your specific needs. Best of all, by building your own personalized program, you can change it as your needs change and stay in charge of your health!

Standard Bank Reverse Mortgages
Click Here for Podcast: AIR-2015-02-22.mp3

As a consumer in today’s world, solid guarantees that you will receive what is promised are becoming fewer and farther between. Expert guest, Nick Parisi,  Group Vice President of Standard Bank knows this, all too well, with his 30 years of industry experience.
