On October 22, at Noon, my guest will be Dr. Jomarie Zeleznik. Dr. Zeleznik is Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. From 1995 until 2004 she trained geriatric fellows, internal medicine and family medicine residents, and medical students at Montefiore Medical Center. She is published in the geriatric and palliative care literature on subjects including pressure ulcers, communication between doctors and health care proxies and aging physiology. Dr. Zeleznik established Comprehensive Geriatric Care in 2004 as an office-based solo medical practice with home visits to for those patients who because they became homebound could no longer travel for primary medical care in the office. Informed by the experience of being one of the many hands-on caregivers for her own home-bound mother who died at home of complications of Parkinson's disease and the challenges of obtaining care in the home, Dr. Zeleznik remade Comprehensive Geriatric Care as direct primary care practice which provides accessible and individualized primary and palliative care to those elderly who cannot leave their homes. Dr. Zeleznik is a co-founder of The CareGivers’ Project, a not for profit which is an on and off-line organization where caregivers for elderly can express and reflect about the complexities of being a caregiver through written and visual material and get-togethers.
Recently, I had the good fortune to sit down with DR PAULA CREIGHTON, MD, FRCPC in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia, Canada.
Dr. Creighton, who specializes in the field of aging or Geriatrics, has a tremendous amount of information to share, on both a professional and personal level, that may alter (in a good way) the way you perceive the aging process.
Although aging is a natural part of the human life cycle, many of us shy away from accessing the expertise and support we need to ensure that our “golden years” (or our parent’s golden years) are fulfilling, healthy, balanced and rewarding. These resources may include invaluable diagnostics, key medical advances, coordination of services, and meaningful community connection.
After talking with Dr. Creighton, I had two flashes of inspiration: First, “I want to learn more.” and second, “Wow, this would be fantastic information for our listeners.” So, get ready for a empowering conversation about AGING WELL that flows straight from the spirit and into the heart. Thank you Dr. Creighton for doing this work!

One of the most contentious issues that that occurs between spouses , adult children and a parent, or doctor and patient, is the issue of driving capacity. The decision to relinquish one’s driving privileges may come about following a stroke or head injury, due to physical decline from Parkinson’s, PSP, or cognitive decline associated with Alzheimer’s.

The topic today is supernutrition through Juice Plus. Nutrient dense food is essential to good health, yet difficult to come by. Come and hear the remarkable stories of restored health through simple supernutrition.
Mary Demakes, R.N. ~ Speaker, Trainer, Health Care Community Leader, Geriatric Manager & Advocate, Alzheimer's Support Group Instructor and Educator
Dr. Candace Corson, Family & Integrative Medicine, Served in the US Public Health Service's National Health Service Corps, National Health Educator & Speaker,
Dr. Corson learned about Juice Plus+ from a friend. It made sense to her because she was looking for better nutrition for her children. Their health had deteriorated due to a toxic change in their food intake from vending machines in their schools. She and her husband decided to include Juice Plus+ in their family's grocery money because it made sense to them. As doctors, they've embraced and taught the power of healing through plant-based nutrition. Because Juice Plus is safe, remarkably effective and thoroughly documented, they felt the ethical responsibility to share it. Dr. Corson believes she can make a bigger difference in people's health by sharing Juice Plus+ than she can by seeing patients in an office. The business was a great fit because of her professional goal to make a difference in transforming how our nation (and the world) feeds the current and coming generations.
Cheryl Cortese is from New Orleans, Louisiana and has been a National Marketing Director with The Juice Plus Company for over 26 years. Cheryl has her own testimoony of recovery from advanced osteoporosis. She credits her recovery to Juice Plus and will be sharing her powerful testimony with us.
To Your Excellent Health!

Aging is a sensitive subject for many people for a myriad of reasons, especially since it is not openly embraced by society although everyone gets older as each minute passes. In this segment of The NLP View Radio Show, host, Donna Blinston, R.N./R.G.N. is joined by special guest Dr. Marc Agronin, M.D., a board-certified adult and geriatric psychiatrist, to discuss his best-selling book How We Age, A Doctor's Journey Into The Heart Of Growing Old.
