How to Improve the US Healthcare System
:

This conversation is so important to have in this moment in time. The pandemic has exposed even more cracks in the system which negatively affects the overall health and wellbeing of people in America. Here are 5 crucial ways we can exact change:

 1) Have one set of rules that insurance companies, healthcare providers, and patients must follow = price and rule transparency. This would save $5B/year in the US—enough money to insure every citizen, reduce all copays and deductibles to zero, and have money left over to take better care of our elderly.

Weight Gain and the Age Factor: Turning Back the Clock

Interview with Dr. Mimi Secor:

Dr. Mimi Secor has been a board certified Family Nurse Practitioner, specializing in Women’s Health, for over 40 years. She is a popular National Speaker and Consultant, educating advanced practice clinicians and consumers around the country and the world. Dr. Mimi is also a fitness and health advocate, and is passionate about helping women to lose weight and feel great.

Here are some of the few things Dr. Mimi thinks you need to know more about weight gain and why age matters:

  1. As we age our metabolism slows down (unless we exercise and lift weights). This is because we begin to lose muscle mass after age 40. If we continue to eat the same amount we will gradually gain weight. This also explains why, as we age, it is more challenging to lose weight. We lose weight more slowly and sometimes we are unable to lose weight.

What Dr. Calabro can say in an interview on
Simple Ways to Improve Concentration
:

Do you often forget a person’s name minutes after meeting them? Are you easily distracted?
  • In the digital age we now live in, it can be difficult to stay focused.
  • According to a Microsoft study, people now have a shorter attention span than a goldfish! Whereas a goldfish can maintain its focus for nine seconds, humans begin to lose concentration after eight seconds.
  • Besides all the digital distractions, there may be other factors contributing to our lack of concentration: Poor nutrition, inadequate sleep, and dehydration may be just some of the reasons why your mental focus is less sharp.
  • To improve your mental clarity, begin by making positive improvements in your diet, be sure that you are getting enough sleep, and drink more water.

Beyond those obvious basic recommendations, here are 4 essential tips to help you regain your focus:

1 – Minimize Distractions. When you really need to concentrate, create a calm, quiet environment. Turn off the TV, mute cell phone notifications and ask that those around you do not disturb you. If necessary, go somewhere you know you will not be disturbed in a quiet space.

2 – Stop Multitasking. Although it may seem like multitasking is an awesome way to get a lot done, it often turns out that all those tasks are not being done well. Try honing on a single task at a time; the spotlight that you shine on each individual task can help you achieve better results.

3 – Live in the Present. It can be difficult to concentrate if you are re-living the past or worrying about the future. “Being present” is key to keeping your attention sharp.

4 – Exercise. Engaging in at least 30 minutes of physical activity has been shown to improve concentration and improve mental health. Whether it’s a workout at the gym or a jog around the block, any exercise can help your focus.

What Dr. Dalton-Smith  Can Say in an Interview on:
Energy Stealers and How Best to Deal With Them:

In a year plagued with stress and challenges, we need sound rest more than ever to function and lead productive lives. But this seemingly simple activity is problematic for millions of Americans. Why do we feel worse when we wake up, after a long sleep, than we did when we went to bed? It’s a complex story of individual physiology, lifestyle, health, and bad habits that exude in our patterns of behavior. It’s called ‘sleep inertia’ and it’s due to a lack of the brain and body, booting up in the morning. It’s a lack of oxygen in the muscles and brain, which makes you feel sleepy even after having a good 8-hour sleep. But, there are other causes too.

How to Prevent and Treat Influenza:

On top of the Coronavirus pandemic, the flu season is here too. Beginning in early fall to mid-spring, the number of diagnosed cases of the influenza virus begins to rise. In any given year 10-20 percent of the population will become infected with the flu. Characteristically the symptoms of the flu are very similar to the common cold; however, these two diseases are the result of different viruses. The flu often presents with fever, headache, body aches, fatigue, sneezing, and cough. The common cold, however, tends to have more sinus involvement with a stuffy or a runny nose and is much milder than the flu. The flu is more likely to result in progression to pneumonia or bronchitis which increases the mortality rate of this virus.  The elderly and the young are most at risk.
