Sweet Sobriety
Click Here for Podcast: AIR-2015-04-26.mp3

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!

Click Here for Podcast: AIR-2015-04-19.mp3

Over the past decade, we have seen dramatic improvements in technology that have led to medical breakthroughs and new drugs that have drastically improved the lives of millions of people.

This is where Control My Care comes in, as Jim Jones, President of Wellspring Benefits Group talks about. You can now have your own care team, managing your medications, discussing how they are working for you and delivered directly to your home.

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 Friction & the Holidays
Click Here for Podcast: AIR-2015-04-05.mp3

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
Click Here for Podcast: AIR-2015-03-22.mp3

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!

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!

Higher Brain Living

Science has shown that we only use five percent of our Higher Brain’s potential. This is not surprising, considering our sensory experience is first filtered through our lower primitive brain, physiologically blocking our limitless capacity for joy and well being. Guest, Zach Polfuss, National Director of Expansion for Higher Brain Living says that the Higher Brain, known as the prefrontal cortex, activates our body’s ability to rejuvenate, feel inner calm and find meaning. The activation creates a feedback mechanism that brings life-sustaining energy into the Higher Brain. The experience opens a gateway to joy, gratitude, purpose and more. Imagine if you could navigate out of chronic emotional blockages. Well you can, and Higher Brain Living is the revolutionary technique that allows you to do this, all through the power of your brain!

The responsibility of caring for an aging loved one can be stressful and overwhelming.  Add sibling warfare to an already challenging situation and family dynamics can downward spiral.  Personal emotions and issues can become the primary focus, instead of the needed care.  Hiring a professional caregiver is always your best bet. It will allow for family members to visit, being the son, daughter, sibling or relative, instead of the caregiver. First Light Home Care owners, Brian, Sande and Chris discuss many different options to consider when care is needed.  An aging loved one may be afraid of hiring a caregiver and chances are, they are not alone.  Family members may feel some of the same fears. Selecting the right home care company is a lot about knowing what to ask and you must, feel confident with your choice. If you are ever uncertain, in doubt or have questions, call First Light Home Care.  They provide extraordinary people and exceptional care, giving you exactly what you need!

Balance is complicated to work with and may be more of a process of elimination, as expert guest Michael Bearce discusses. With hospitals seeing revenue declines in Medicare, it is in everyone’s best interest that falls be reduced. Bob Kunio may have the answer with his Simply Rehab program. Muscle mass declines rapidly with aging and Simply Rehab has a way to build and keep muscle. This may be the key to never taking a tumble, while also building strong bones.

Cholesterol & Statin Drugs
Click Here for Podcast: AIR-2014-10-12.mp3

Statin drugs have been hailed as the miracle drug of the century by authorities around the world. The market for statin drugs is billions of dollars for drug manufacturers. Many doctors prescribe statin drugs to all of their patients over 50 years of age. Fortunately, not all doctors are the same. Dr. Anand Patel suggests, 150 minutes of cardiovascular exercise weekly and dietary changes first, to help naturally lower cholesterol before considering a statin drug. Dr. Daniel Heller talks about natural alternatives and how they impact our overall cardiovascular health, which is the bigger picture of high cholesterol. It all comes down to choice and many people do not want to make lifestyle changes. They prefer statin drugs, or feel they are best for them. Our health is our greatest wealth, and the choice you make, hopefully, is your best bet, for you!

We are reminded every October of the importance of mammograms. Breast cancer affects one out of every eight woman as it did, guest, Liz Starman. Liz did a routine breast check and found a lump. She immediately had a mammogram, which lead into an ultra sound, followed by a biopsy. As painful as it is was to hear, Liz did have breast cancer. Treatment and surgery began immediately and with rigor. Guest, Sandy Hoffman is a Breast Nurse Navigator at Northwest Community Hospital. Sandy helped Liz understand what she could expect with the fight she was in, as well as, being a rock for her to lean on. Liz is a cancer survivor today. Although, Liz may have more routine testing to keep her a cancer survivor, routine mammograms make the difference and they may also save a life!

Fear Not ~ Embracing Life’s Journey

When fear is a potential for pain, it can trigger a variety of attitudes and behaviors. We may freeze, flee, defend ourselves or get stuck. Fear signals move swiftly to avoid danger and they intensify when danger is unavoidable. Internal fears can be triggered by self doubt, where external fears are caused by something outside, that we want to avoid. When something bad happens, as it did to guests, Dale Spencer and Jana Flaig, fear can land right in our lap. It did not matter if the fear was external or internal; it had to be met, head on. With self determination, support and encouragement from others, both continue knocking fear down daily. Dale and Jana are two extraordinary human beings who went from devastation to being dynamic and, all by choice!

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!

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!
