11/18/20: Neil Nathan, MD | MOLD TOXICITY: ITS IMPACT ON AGING WELL | Aging in Portland with Mark Turnbull from ComForCare Portland
Neil Nathan, MD, joins us to explain why mold toxicity may be the cause of many chronic diseases as we age. In fact, Dr. Nathan literally wrote the book on this subject.
When we think of obstacles to aging well, mold toxicity probably isn't at the top of our list. However, Dr. Nathan says there is strong evidence that many of our chronic diseases can be traced to mold toxicity. When traditional medicine is not providing the answers we need, then maybe it’s time to turn to the doctor who goes where others fear to tread. Over more than 50 years of practicing medicine and sharing his expertise in five books, Dr. Nathan provides what may be the keys to unlocking the chronic conditions that plague our bodies ... including Alzheimer's disease. #Portland

10/28/20: Jesse Gamez, regional president of Humana | A DOSE OF MEDICARE WISDOM | Aging in Portland with Mark Turnbull
Jesse Gamez, the Intermountain Region Market President of Humana, joined us to navigate the options for your Medicare coverage. Every year, there’s a narrow window during which you can sign up for Medicare coverage or change the plan you already have. And every year, those plans have some changes that you’ll want to understand to make an informed decision about the best coverage for you. Companies like Humana work very hard during this period to keep you informed about those options. For example, Humana’s Medicare Advantage Plans offer a modern array of pricing and coverage advantages with which many seniors may be unfamiliar. Humana helps millions of members with their health coverage, and Jesse leads this region of the Humana team that works hard to help seniors achieve their best health. Don’t miss the show!
