BE CAREFUL WHO YOU VOTE FOR IF YOU WANT TO KEEP YOUR MEDICARE BENEFITS!

BOOMERS’ BEWARE!!

As we all know Medicare is under the knife.  This is a benefit you have worked for, PAID FOR  and deserve.  In my humble opinion, we should not be taking away our Senior Americans’ heath care benefits while we spend billions to keep Corporations out of bankruptcy, while they continue to pay their CEO millions and millions of our tax dollars.

Everything is so backwards…if you ask me.  Republicans don’t act like Republicans anymore!!  I don’t trust either party because they are all BOUGHT AND PAID FOR by these Corporations.

Please be very careful who you vote for…do not give your Medicare Benefits away to a voucher system.  This will be worse than you can imagine.

Medicare, Where for Art Thou Medicare?

My Part D USA is a comparison/enrollment service for people who are turning 65 or losing their retirement coverage or are finally retiring and need to switch from your employers plan to a Medicare Plan.  We can also help you if you feel you are paying TOO MUCH for your doctor and hospital coverage.  We will help you understand your options and give you price information without your having to talk to a salesman from every different company, saving you time and frustration!

Many people are very concerned about Medicare and how our politicians will be re-vamping it for the future.  Please realize that if we privatize your benefits you will not have any supervision over how you are treated by the Insurance Corporations. Many of you may have experienced being on Medicare Advantage Plans, where you have co-pays and networks of doctors and hospitals that you MUST use with no choice and many hoops to jump through.  Lots of these kinds of plans have gone out of business, even though they were costing the tax payer more than double of what using an Original Medicare Supplement/Medigap Plan would have been.  Please read my website www.Top10Things WrongWithMedicare.com for further details.

We do not recommend Medicare Advantage Plans and never have, unless you absolutely cannot afford a Medicare Supplement or you are on disability.  If you have one of these issues you will have to check with your local doctors and hospitals to see which Medicare Advantage Plans are still being used in your PARTICULAR area.  We do not enroll anyone on any Medicare Advantage Plans no matter what the circumstances are for you.

If you need help because you are on disability or you cannot afford a Medicare Supplement….or you have had a problem with your Part D plan, please call either Medicare directly at 800-633-4227 to issue a formal complaint against the Part D or Medicare Advantage Plan you use.  You can also call The Medicare Rights Center at 800-333-4114 because they have free lawyers there that can help you deal with the drug or insurance companies.

As always, please email me with any questions you may have.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: You don’t succeed for very long by kicking people when they are down or take advantage of them when they are confused.  You’ve got to know how to explain and care about them, plain and simple.  Lee Iacocca

PREVENTING HEART DISEASE

1. Millions of Americans take a daily aspirin to reduce the risk for a heart attack.  In the past, doctors typically advised taking one baby aspirin (81mg) daily.  This is a conservative does that minimizes the risk for gastrointestinal bleeding that aspirin can cause.  The LATEST recommendation concluded that the optimal dose is 162 mg or 2 baby aspirin or half an adult aspirin daily.  It can prevent a heart attack or stroke in men and women by 30%.  Talk to your doctor about beginning an aspirin regimen.

2. Chew sugarless gum that contains xylitol that suppresses mouth bacteria.  People with gum disease are 2 to 3 times more likely to have a heart attack than those without it.  Be sure to floss everyday when you brush your teeth.

3. People who drink one or more cups of black or green (not herbal teas) tea daily were 44% less likely to have heart attacks than people who don’t drink tea.  Flavonoids in tea are strong antioxidants that protect blood vessels from injury and inflammation.

4. Eating a bowl of cereal with at least 22 grams of fiber a day can also provide heart health.  Also getting Omega 3′s in fatty fish such as salmon, herring and mackerel helps in many ways to reduce inflammation in your heart.

5. Sleep 6 to 8 hours a night.  People who get less than that are 48% more likely to get heart disease or a stroke than those who sleep more.  If you can’t sleep through the night, taking a walk for at least 30 minutes several times a week can help.

6.  Reduce stressful events, try not to get angry and easily aggravated.  Slow down and smell the roses and realize that the small things don’t really matter that much.

7. Staying close to family and friends and having pets keeps your serotonin levels up and this “feel good” hormone can keep you healthy by reducing blood pressure and making you laugh and enjoy your life.

8. Make sure you have the best health coverage and always get a Medicare Part D comparison every year during the annual enrollment period, Nov to Dec. 7th.  If you are turning 65 we can help take the stress out of making decisions regarding your enrollments.

AMAZING FOOD CURES

Did you know that certain foods can help you, sometimes, as well as the drugs you are taking?   It always helps to eat the right things, but wouldn’t it be nice to bring down your drug list?  Always wait until your doctor says it is okay to stop taking a medication, but try a few of these suggestions and see what happens!!

1.  Sleep Better With Honey – honey increases serotonin a calming neurotransmitter in the brain.  One half teaspoon to one teaspoon 45 minutes before bed may help you fall asleep quicker.  Honey also helps burns heal faster.

2.  Spinach improves depression – Up to 38% of people with depression are deficient in the B vitamin folate.  If you eat one cup of raw spinach or any dark green leafy veggie such as kale or collard greens (if this is true then NONE of my kin folks should have ever been depressed) you should improve your mood.  Also pumpkin and sunflower seeds help too.

3.  Lower Blood Pressure With Celery – Celery contains apigenin which dilates blood vessels.  Eat 4 or 5 stalks of celery daily.  That is enough to reduce blood pressure in most people. Continue reading ‘AMAZING FOOD CURES’
