Dr. David Sofer and Understanding Arthritis Pain and Management

Dr. David Sofer and Understanding Arthritis Pain and Management
"I teach people with arthritis to move differently, so they can overcome pain and get back to doing the things they love." My guest is Dr. David Sofer. And this is a quote from his website, www.arthritishelp.info. In our conversation, he states that being diagnosed with arthritis is not a call to the wheelchair and chronic pain. Yes, arthritis is a chronic condition possibly giving us chronic pain. But 50% of those diagnosed with arthritis will not feel the pain or discomfort of this disease. He teaches the principles of movement, which breaks down the fundamentals of how we move. That helps us understand how to live with arthritis. Dr. Dave talks more about posture as well. As he states in this interview, there is no such thing as good or bad posture. Your body tends toward what is comfortable for you, to get your body to balance over your bones. And finally, we talk about how patients are diagnosed with arthritis, and how it is wearing and irregularity in your joints. His website is full of free tutorials and videos to help you help yourself understand and manage the pain of arthritis. Dr. Dave developed his unique method for relieving arthritis pain by combining his decades of clinical practice as a physical therapist and his background as a champion gymnast and springboard diver. Refining this method over thousands of treatments for arthritis patients Dr. Dave inspires and empowers them to overcome their limitations and regain the ability to do the things they love. He has shown that everyone has the ability to improve no matter their age, diagnosis, or physical ability. With the right guidance, understanding, and commitment you have the ability to feel better.

Choose Home Care Act of 2021

Choose Home Care Act of 2021
(The Choose Home Care Act of 2021), introduced by Senators Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) and Todd Young (R-IN), aims to give more seniors the option to receive care at home for 30 days after a hospitalization, rather than going to a skilled nursing facility or other transitional settings. The legislation would open the door to a variety of home-based services, including skilled nursing, therapy, primary care, personal care, RPM, telehealth, meals, home adaptations and non-emergent transportation. My guest is Joe Russell, Executive Director at (Ohio Council for Home Care and Hospice). (Here's how you can take action to help this Act move forward.)

Online Scammers and Spammers

Online Scammers and Spammers
Ed Brazee, Jill Spencer, and Chris Toy from Boomer Tech Adventures are back as my guests on this episode. BoomerTECH Adventures is all about serving boomers and seniors who want to feel competent and confident in their online skills while using their personal technology devices. Spamming is kind of a benign form of scamming. It's not necessarily evil, but it certainly does take resources and time. Be sure to keep your personal information offline because that's how the spammers find you. Plus, if you have a digital assistant like Siri or Amazon's system, Alexa or Google, they are always listening. That can actually result in ads that will kind of target you. Be careful if you receive an email that may like it's from a known source or an unknown source. If it has a link in the email and it asks you to click on that link from inside the email, you want to avoid that. What's happening is that the hacker or scammer is directing you to go to a place that they have designated. Similar to that is, more and more, you'll see your social media someone who you know, you're friends with, and you get a message from this friend asking you to be their friend, but you're already their friend. Don't do anything with that request. A recent survey showed that 19% of people between 50 and 64 have explored online dating, And a lot of people are looking for companionship. They're recent widows, widowers, or divorced and would really like to have someone in their life. But beware. These scammers are charming, they're persistent, persuasive, and they play on your emotions, especially guilt. If there's any request for money, end the conversation right there. The Amazon brushing scam. Brushing is a scam in which third-party Amazon vendors send people products they never actually bought. While this may seem an odd scam at first, it is all to do with exploiting Amazon's search ranking system. This then pushes their items up their search rankings and encourages more genuine purchases. When it's all said and done, trust your intuition, trust your hunch. If it doesn't feel right, don't go there, don't do it.

Heart Health Advice from Dr. Philip Ovadia - Stay Off My Operating Table

Heart Health Advice from Dr. Philip Ovadia - Stay Off My Operating Table
Most diet books teach you to set short-term weight loss goals. These “solutions” do a better job of lightening your wallet than lightening you. As a heart surgeon who used to be morbidly obese, Dr. Philip Ovadia has seen firsthand the failures of mainstream diets and medicine. He realized that what helped him lose over 100 pounds was the same solution that could have prevented most of the thousands of open heart surgeries he has performed—metabolic health. In Stay off My Operating Table, Dr. Ovadia shares the complete metabolic health system to prevent disease and optimize your health, a system that the diet and drug industries don’t want you to know about. Unlike quick-fix, “7-day,” radical diets, Dr. Ovadia’s approach is a sustainable, long-term solution that could work for you. Whether you’ve suffered from chronic diseases or want to prevent them decades from now, Stay off My Operating Table could help you take back control of your health.

The Creative Care Imagination Kit with Dr. Anne Basting
My guest is Anne Basting, PhD, who is a leader in transforming aging and eldercare. I have her on this podcast to talk about her Creative Care Imagination Kit. Based on Dr. Basting’s twenty-five years of research, this “imagination kit” makes it easy for families, friends, and caregivers to make meaningful connections with elders and others dealing with physical, cognitive, or emotional challenges, including memory loss. The Creative Care Imagination Kit sparks conversation and encourages active listening, allowing all ages to freely share ideas and stories without worrying about getting the details “correct.” Dr. Basting’s years of research have shown that these practices stimulate the brain and awaken the imagination, adding wonder and awe not only to the daily lives of those with dementia but to all family members, and providing them with a means of connection and communication.
