Unfortunately not because of any time in the in the slammer or any problems with my license in a somewhat thoughtful various er- pigeon Course but i grew up in detroit michigan Talking now from the suburb in detroit michigan attended university in ann arbor. Michigan graduated top of my class medical school. But i knew from about a swallow wanted to be a heart moved to dallas moved to kansas city out and training with the best skills and particularly treating heart attacks with angioplasty instead. You have some wonderfully people from australia. New zealand in the my mentor in kansas city was from all actually a dislike from new zealand allah but when visit i'll be of the difference between the do another very different entry but nineteen ninety way before you were born. I imagine or at least run it. I join back in detroit. Michigan big practice. And i was the guy running a night treating sick people coronary Cardiac cath lab artists. But i was even back then very interested in the other part the About our of health which is prevention nutrition. Lifestyles sleep stress. Nutraceutical supplements the whole thing.

The university mentioned developed a preventive cardiology program. But i knew that there was something else that i really had an energy for something else. I mean that was doing wonderful. Things are day is the same thing every day. When wonderful big over i went back to university in two thousand twelve a whole year doing a university based courses integrative cardiology natural gas and pretty much nutrition thing adnan stunning that for decades. But i didn't know all the nutraceutical isn't about chemistry testing and the epa genetics and the protonix and we can use fancy words. I graduated and of course.

Arizonans 65 and older will be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine starting next week

"This hour we took you live to the Arizona Department of Health Services Update on the covert 19 vaccine distribution. We had some technical difficulties, but we have those resolved and we want to bring you now. The rest of that briefing with all the details. Here's Dr Carol Chris, director of our State Health department. So now provide some updates on covert 19 vaccine and implementation of our program here in Arizona. One of the exciting updates that we made today. It is not this week that is not reflected on our chart. It will not be reflected until Tuesday, but Arizona made the decision that Arizonans 65 8 years of age and older are now prioritized. To be vaccinated against covert 19 in our prioritized phase one be along with our education and child care services and our protective services occupations, which includes law enforcement, corrections and fire. This recommendation was approved by the Arizona Vaccine and Antiviral Prioritization Advisory Committee, which is intended to protect those who are most at risk for severe outcomes due to Cove in 19. So we know that those there are over the age of 65 have all higher likelihood of hospitalization and death, and by be getting people vaccinated in several weeks from now we hope to reduce the strain on Arizona's hospitals. And you can find additional information on our website at easy Health. Doc Dub slash find vaccine. And on Tuesday, we will be updating that to provide clarity about which counties are going to be vaccinated the 65 to 74 year old age group at their vaccination sites. We also have counties that have moved into our prioritized. Phase one B and we have some that are fully in phase one B. So if you look at the map of Arizona, the counties that Aaron Black are still in phase one A. So does our healthcare providers and our long term care facility, residents and staff. When you look at our darker gray, that's the prioritized phase one be, so that's going to be the face that we just talked about. Currently. We are vaccinating age 75 older. Along with educators and child care and their support staff and our protective services occupations. When we increase to one be that also includes our Sent can keep our society functioning. That will be people who work in the transportation industry, including gas stations, shipping those types of things. The food industry, including agriculture. S so there's a large number of there's a large list of employees that are eligible for the one B category that is located on our website. Um But you can find out what what phase Each county is in, and we update this infographic daily, and you can link to it off of easy health. Doc Club slash find a vaccine. As of today, over 232,000 doses of vaccine have been administered statewide. So now we'll move into Arizona's vaccine allocation and administration. Over the next few weeks, A DHS will be working to increase access to vaccine increase the rate of vaccination into streamline communications. So as you look at the vaccine, I'm distribution overview. Arizona currently follows a local Allocator model for vaccine distribution. Our local part partners are the backbone of the vaccine program implementation and know their counties that are no they're partners and their counties the best so our federal partners every week provide our Arizona's allocation to the state. We divide that allocation of based on priorities to our local partners, who then will determine which providers in their local jurisdiction will receive that scene for that week. We collect all of those orders on Ben. We place Arizona's full order for that week, and then the federal government will ship those orders directly to the providers that we have ordered on behalf of as vaccine becomes more and more available. We will no longer need to use this local Allocator model and providers such as pharmacies, community health centers and physician's offices will be able just to directly order vaccine from the manufacturers. So this week we received additional first dose allocations of Fizer, which were distributed again. Toe America and Pima County's All 15 counties received Madonna doses, and so we continued to reserve given the unique storage requirements for our Fizer vaccine. We continue to reserve our Majority vaccine for our local or rural health departments. Um In addition to receiving that first those first doses of visor and Madonna vaccine we have received our second doses so that we can continue vaccinating those that I've already received their first US. And have had that either 21 or 28 Day waiting period. This is Dr Cara Chris State Health director, speaking at the Health Department's covert 19 vaccination rollout. Press briefing on Katie Our news 92 3 FM. So during the week of January, 18th Arizona will have been allocated 803,150 doses total. You can see how that's been allocated across the state. You can see at the bottom where we have prioritized our CDC Long term care facility partnership by providing them with the vaccine that they need to vaccinate our Our staff and residents that are long term care facilities. And then you can also see the number of doses that have gone to the state of Arizona. Um Not all of these doses of the 803 have arrived in Arizona. A number of these doses have been allocated to, um Have been ordered for our county partners and will arrive next week. They We anticipate that with the federal holiday. Usually they arrive Monday through Wednesday. We anticipate that they will arrive Tuesday through Friday of next week. So we continue to add additional sites for vaccine administration, So we have initial phase one and phase one B vaccination sites throughout the state. We have over 200 vaccination sites on our website. We also have activated the second phase of the CDC pharmacy partnership, which began the week of December. 27th. So we initially prioritized in phase one of that partnership are skilled nursing facilities, which are highest security, long term care facilities. Um As of the end of this week, all of those facilities will have had at least their first visit from CVS or Walgreen's, and they are scheduling appointments to start assisted living facilities throughout the state next week. So as additional state. Um uh, that scene becomes available, We will be adding additional providers we've had over 730 providers on bordered with a DHS and over 800 pharmacies statewide have enrolled in the CDC pharmacy program to provide in store vaccinations. We have talked on each week about the long term care partnership that CDC put together with our pharmacy partners. So our pharmacy partners code into the facility's and vaccinate the staff and residents of that facility. Um as of this week over 140 skilled nursing facilities scheduled to receive vaccinations, and they will begin vaccinating are assisted living and our group homes starting next week. We've got over 2000 facilities enrolled in the federal program where one of the states with the highest number of facilities enrolled, and our goal is to cover approximately 450,000 residents and staff over the next couple of months. So this is part of the infographic that we post each day on our website. If you look you can see by county what phase That county is currently vaccinating. The total vaccines and ministered along with the vaccination rate per 100,000. And so you can see statewide 232,000 vaccines have been administered. Um, This may not include some of the doses that are provided by our tribal Our federal partners is this is pulled out of the States Immunization registry. So to talk about updates and announcements of this week. On Monday, we had a soft launch of the State Farm Stadium Probate 19 vaccination site. So far we've administered over 20,000 vaccinations at that site, and we are averaging apart between 203 100 vaccinations per hour. We have booked tens of thousands of appointments through January 31st and anticipate opening up additional appointments. That will be between February 1st and February 28th. Those appointments will open up on January 19th at 9 A.m.. We're very excited. Because our partners have really made this endeavor possible. It's a whole community partnership. And again, we just want to thank the Department of Emergency and Military Affairs, the Arizona Cardinals and state from Stadium Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona, The Catherine and Ben I. V Foundation. Arizona State University and Walgreens. All of these, these groups are playing a large role at the site on D have made this possible. Way also are very excited about the launch of our second state run of vaccinations site. This will be located at Phoenix Municipal Stadium. We are still looking to see how many doses we will have available for that. For that site, so the number of appointments will depend on the available vaccine again. We're partnering with the Arizona Department of Emergency and Military Affairs and Arizona State University to run this site. Arizona State University currently runs a testing a saliva based testing site at this location and so they will scale up to provide vaccination administration. Again. Registrations for appointments are going to open up Tuesday, January 19th at 9 A.m. for this site. We updated our easy health. Dr. Hobbes Flash find vaccine website with an interactive map. You can go onto the map. It has all of the current locations with vaccine, you can select a sight and a box will pop up that has information about that site and a link to their registration. So not all of them. Not all vaccine providers are utilizing the state's vaccine management system. Some providers air using their own appointments software, but we will link to them whenever we have that information so that it's one stop shopping when you go to our our map. We will continue to update this map with additional vaccination sites as they come. In a couple of other exciting announcements, we have been expanding access. So a DHS activated the CDC retail pharmacy program. This is going to add up to 100 pharmacy stores over the next few weeks. The first pharmacies to come on board in Arizona are gonna be fries, Safeway and Albertsons. And so those will be included on our sites as we get notified, which pharmacies which specific pharmacy locations will have that scene? But they will be on our website and will be another source for those that are eligible to receive vaccine to go get vaccinated when this program becomes fully activated, more than 800 pharmacies will have covert 19 vaccine available in Arizona. We currently have more than 200 vaccination sites on our website that have received vaccine and this includes 45 community health centers as well. So if you are eligible and you receive care at one of our community health centers You could check on our website to see if they have received vaccine. And again just another update on helping our Arizona hospitals. We have been recruiting nurses with a nursing staffing contract here in the state. That's been one of our most successful endeavors. We are very excited. The majority of the nurses are here. When they arrive. They will stay on site for eight weeks with an opportunity to extend that On gesso. As of last week. 348 nurses have started work. We anticipated almost 200 more arriving this week again that We don't necessarily count them until we've heard that they have Arrived in the state and are attending on boarding at their assigned hospital. But we continue to work with our staffing contract to get all of the nurses that we can here in.

Front Desk Success with Jerry Durham

"Well, hey Jerry, welcome to show. How are you? I'm very well. How are you doing this beautiful? All day I can't complain. It's a Friday, right? Exactly. All right. So for those who don't know who Jerry Durham the PT is why don't you give us a little background on yourself off? What do we got? We got 27 years in the as a license pts for twenty-seven years in the profession. I early on worked in just about every month in there was except for Pediatrics and neuro rehab for about the first five to six years of my career and then finally went out on my own and then partnered up and down that Journey was about twenty year journey of business running a broad. I mean back up running a practice in a clinic and then running a business and then break out of that about five years ago now. Yeah, I think it's about five years. I get I get lost in the story but about five years ago and now working on basically wage. A game for lack of anything else taking everything I learned in hindsight from those twenty years and going here's the way you here's the way I did it wrong don't do this. And as you age both know and most people listening to this Healthcare tends to focus on the providers primarily and my big takeaway where I am now is this understanding this whole experience of the team roll the team role in patients success the team role and business success, you know, patient experience patient life cycle all those things and that's what I'm doing now. So yeah, it's been a long it's been I mean, it's been a long freaking journeyman twenty-seven years a long time. Yeah. Yeah, you've got a whole bunch of experience and I think it at one point I I found out about you cuz I was listening to a podcast years ago about you've taken your practice which was in network and then pulling into cash and all that and the importance of obviously understanding your patient relationship cycle your patient life cycle, whatever whatever you want to call log. To convert those patients to get them to come in and stay. So tell me a little bit then about your company you run now, it's called the client experience company. Right? Right. So back to what you said just for context for everybody about twelve years ago where and by the way, I don't tell this story as the guy who walked up the hill and snow both ways to school and just for context and I'm not here to say it's easier now, it's harder now. It's anything I just want everybody to understand so about twelve years ago, right? I went out and network and no joke people that nobody even knew without a network box. Right? Nobody was using the word cash practice cash PT everybody, you know, if there was a cash practice it was like a dinky little office with a dinky little person who like had all their clients were judged according clients. Yeah, like 10 people, right? So we made a business decision to go out and network. It was strictly business. Can't remember who the first I think it was wage. That was our first contract that fell below our cost of doing business. So I was like it was an easy. This is what's funny. It's you know, you read all these things and people like I don't know what to do. Do I take insurance or life insurance. I'm like, it's a business decision. It's based on your client and write what you need to generate to pay your bills if Blue Cross is contract is $75 per visit and it costs you $80 to deliver care. That's a no-brainer. I can't yeah exactly at work with them. So twelve years ago, and that's really where the Where I look back and reflect where I was like hm. I gotta do something different and that's where this all patient experience thing and the front desk and then realizing which probably a lot this is the beauty every time I do this like every year that goes by more people are nodding their head going. Yeah, I get that and I'm like, that's cool because when you're ago two years ago three years ago people like I did not get it or that's not true. But this understanding that you know, if If Jerry calls your clinic that that first touch point right the front desk the journey starts there. So the patient success starts Thursday the business success. It's I call it I caught the entry point to the business everybody, you know used to be used to be everybody thought the entry point was well when when they get in the room with the provider with Brad and I'm like, yeah that first experience with the clinician, right? Yeah, and that was already goes I went through that right? Oh, yeah, and I went through that for a long time in my business. We're all I cared about was the providers right home. And so, you know just learning the value of all of a sudden wait a minute we managed and set expectations before they arrived we build trust before they arrived what I call a team Alliance instead. They're reputed client and while look at this magically here's the beauty of it patient numbers improved and buy pay sorry patient measurements patient success. So, yep. Getting better people happier all that stuff improve yet. Then my business metrics change. So I was like what's going on? Right? And that's been that last twelve thirteen years. It took me all that time to start equating. This change here was because of this right going further Upstream. It was like, wow, we changed the first phone call and we stopped getting billing complaints. It wasn't a billing issue. So things like that and that's off the company the client experience company does right we come in we look at the whole kit and caboodle. We look at your whole process, right? Do you understand who your ideal client is do you understand and it could be multiple. Do you understand what you're serving them with right? Cuz no man. Nobody wants physical therapy, right? Everybody wants a solution and then looking at the life cycle and then look up the system's you've built in to create an experience that you want your clients to help

C. B. S. M. has stepped up it will be an even bigger way tell us about it yeah really I you know we're we're working with the government the administration as it was as many else are to to deal with this global pandemic in one of the things you can do Paul W. as is wave the limits and early refills and and encourage ninety day supplies of methods you know we've been in this unprecedented in time that's one thing you can do it adds to the the waving of the copays deductibles on the call with Towson nine echo the treatment and no cost telehealth you know that the script part of this is is really important because people need to stay on their medications and obviously when you get a ninety day supply at no additional charge that makes the system better people are in pharmacy last people are out last you know all the things that we've talked about over the last three weeks probably well it's a new year and this is so spot on in fact I had mentioned this but weaker to ago to my listeners because I was going to go out and I had to have my own expense and I had to fight a little bit get a ninety day supply because I I have life saving drugs that I take as many people do and I didn't want to get to a point where a I couldn't leave my house or B. I I would they would run out of prescription so you're now making it possible for people to get ninety days the governor put that eating dinner that ruling in saying sixty days worth of medications and making it possible because it now the insurance companies the other ones not Blue Cross blue shield of Michigan but the other ones that fight people I'm doing this will have no leg to stand on yeah you know called on the I think generally what I've seen in the last three weeks is the is the health of the entire healthcare community has has has come together I mean your you're gonna hear from local you've heard from a lot of people you're going to hear from a lot of people in the on the provider side the providers so the hospital systems the dispositions the the nurses on the forefront in and just kind of unbelievable John we've never seen anything from a volume standpoint equipment standpoint anything like this and you know we pay the seventy two million dollars a day and claims normally seventy two million dollars seventy two million dollars a day in claims yes and you know you're covered the heck out of five million people in the state and you know we've got to keep our engine going because those claims are paid to hospitals those claims are paid to the physician groups or physicians all over the state and it sort of keeps the app in the you know the the engine running with all the things that everybody's doing so we take this very seriously as part of the echo the the healthcare eco system ecosystem and you know it's is it more important than ever and so anytime we can make things a little bit easier and we continue to turn out and and pay the claims and work with the hospitals and work with the position groups that's really our job right now and and you know our folks that stepped up we've we've had a they are currently bases a terrific employee base we've been working well with the with your W. as you know Paul W. about thirty percent of our workforce is represented by the U. A. W. and you know we're all in this together and I said that many times and we just have to push through this now how long it's going to take to do you know it depends on who you talk to and I understand that but we need to do our part and we continue to do it and I am also so impressed with the business community and the people in Ohio all over southeast Michigan all over Michigan there are helping you know today we open up the the testing site at the state fairgrounds and hats off to to quicken loans and and the folks there who stepped up but you know whether it's the auto companies Meyer DG are United way's doing a heck of a job Paul W.

For Her Head Cold, Insurer Coughed Up $25,865

"There's no question that medical bills are often higher in expensive neighborhoods and there's no question that this corner of New York City not far from grammar see park is one of the most expensive bits of real estate in the country but still you have to ask if you go to a doctor with a cold and a sore throat should you expect the last bill that tops twenty eight thousand dollars that's what a doctor at Manhattan specialty care just off Park Avenue south charge Alexa cast the I caught up with this forty year old public policy consultant at an office uptown I start getting a really sore throat and so I decided just to go the doctor to see if I had strep throat I was leaving on vacation that next week overseas and so I just wanted to like have some antibiotics in case it didn't go away the appointment with doctor Roy thought a lot he was quick she says a throat swab and blood draw and she was out the door with her prescription for cold went away pretty quickly and she enjoyed her vacation I get back about ten days later there's several messages on my phone and I have an email from the billing department at doctor Patel he's office the teller that BlueCross BlueShield this mailing her family a check for more than twenty five thousand dollars to cover some of the out of network lab tests the actual bill was over twenty eight thousand dollars but the doctor says they will collect the twenty five hundred dollar copay I thought it was a mistake I thought maybe they meant to hundred and fifty dollars I couldn't fathom in what universe I would go to the doctor for a strep throat culture and some antibiotics and I would end up with a twenty five thousand dollar bill this is perfectly normal the doctor's office kept assuring her and they sent a courier over to our house to pick up the check did the doctor tell you what test she was running now did you tell you that she was sending things to a clinician alright that lab that was out of network now definitely not yeah he went back and forth a little bit with the billing people right you were that you made it clear that you're unhappy about this yes I made it very clear that I wasn't happy about it in fact she told him she would report the doctor to the New York state medical board the test in question turned out to be DNA probes that were looking for a smorgasbord of viruses and bacteria Dr Renae majority professor of family medicine at the Georgetown University school of medicine sees no reason to run them in my twenty years of being a doctor I've never ordered any of these tests let alone seen anyone of my colleague students in other physicians order anything like that in the outpatient setting I have no idea why they were ordered maybe for a patient in the intensive care unit or with a difficult case of pneumonia there could be a reason to run these tests he says the ones for influenza are potentially useful but there's a cheap rapid test it could have been used instead there about two hundred and fifty viruses that cause the symptoms for the common cold and even if you did know that there was virus a versus virus to be it would make no difference because there's no treatment anyway so no reason to run these tests Alexa Kasdan also wondered whether running these tests and running up her insurance bill is even legal or show marking an attorney in overland park Kansas who specializes in medical billing says that depends on the details there are a lot of state law issues that can be involved and there's a lot of contractual issues that can be involved in this particular issue New York state has a surprise billing law patients need to be informed if they're in network doctor is referring a test to an out of network provider and to warn people that they could end up with a big bill state laws also limit cozy relationships between doctors and labs that could be at play here once companies also have contracts with doctors say making sure lab tests are done in network but billing expert marching says insurance companies aren't monitoring those claims as they come in most claims processing even for something a claim like this that you and I would read it after the fact and think gosh this just seems outrageous to pay this much money for these types of lab services are often completely automated there's never a human set of eyes that look at the bell and decide whether or not it gets paid the list prices in this case or about twenty times the going rate in that Manhattan zip code marking says and if the threats wanted been sent to lab core which is in network for Castin I'm courses that would have charged the insurer about six hundred and fifty dollars rather than the more than twenty eight thousand dollars for essentially the same tests Dr fought a lot he did not respond to requests for comment and even though a lexicon aspen didn't have to pay practices like this still cost us morning says she may not be paying anything on this particular claim but overall if the group's claims and costs rise everyone all the employees and and their spouses paying into the health plan may eventually BPP paying for the cost of this after we started asking questions about this cast and Kerrier Blue Cross blue shield of Minnesota launched an investigation they acknowledge that the review process failed to flag this extraordinary bill this at the doctor's office had not cash the check so they put a stop payment on it well they dig deeper morning says people can take issues like this to their insurance company or state regulators or do some of their own legwork before leaving the doctor's office I always ask where they're sending my labs or where they're sending my images so that I can make sure that that's in network with my

Could the 'fountain of youth' molecule reverse your ageing

"Our guest today says that there is a youth molecule in the human body and he says this molecule of youth happens to be concentrated in our skin hair eyes in joints he says this of substance not only dramatically influences our parents the words how younger how healthy we look but more importantly our physical strength our flexibility and mobility this is our ability to do things let things get around be physical today we're gonna learn more about this once mysterious substance how new breakthroughs are allowing us to get it back and keep it as we get older all right bill Sardis here bill is an author he's traveled around the world in search of information about hyaluronic acid or H. AG is it's sometimes referred to back from his recent trip to a small village in Japan where people maintain high levels of HA and are famous for their ability to defy the aging process bill welcome to the program great to be with you have Pat and all your statements to introduce the show today are certainly not overstatement after years of people using oral hyaluronic acid supplements well of course we're going to give your audience a report today an update and an improvement how things are going as thousands of people have discovered how the support in particular their joints but also their skin and their eyes and of course their hair and so on these are the areas where the body actually is highly concentrated in HA but I want to tell all your listeners to please stay tuned because there's going to be a an offer today from purity products no strings attached this is the offer from a reputable company that's been in business for years yes for five dollars there's no strings attached you get to try a bottle of this wonderful new product and make your life's. all make your supplement regimen simple and save a little money along the way now you see there's a youth molecule in the human body that it holds the key the visible signs of aging now you've written about this you've traveled to Japan to do the research so so tell me about what is what exactly is this molecule you're talking about had it's amazing that most people don't know this word hyaluronic acid and of course it's made its all over our body it's in our skin it's an all natural molecules we can get it orally replace it in our body but more so we've learned that the little bit that we can get as a dietary supplement can trigger your body can make more and of course why do we need more well when we're young we're loaded with this stuff when we're babies we have what we call baby fat it's really baby eight a it it makes well it babies fall down and get cuts and scrapes you notice they never really get any life long scars from that because they have lots of H. A. onboard Hylarana gas that in to make this easy to understand for the audience I think we can all appreciate that women have smooth their skin and thicker hair and so on all of that is because estrogen sends a signal to make more HA and that's why the girls have more limber flexible joints they can get in a kind of a lotus posture kind of that men can't get into that they certainly have all of those advantages and it's because the estrogen sends a signal to make more HA now women have more HA to lose than men do and you see the skin traveling up the joint console on as women age but there's a way to get it back and of course purity products for years now has been talking about HA and they have a new formula just for the joint H. H. joint formula and it's so important today because I think everyone's confused an article in the. New York times says consumers a confused what to do to support their joints to people are looking for alternatives we need cushioning in between the joints the bones in our joint what a doctor looks at an X. ray all he's doing is measuring the space between the two bones there in the knees so it's about a quarter of an inch space without that cushioning you've got bone rubbing on bone that's what H. A. yes it's the Jello or the cushioning agent in between our bones we lose it either due to wear and tear or age and so we start getting problems the more that we find pain relief the more pain relievers we use the more we're going to use these joy and then we're gonna wear out more bone and they've noticed this people who chronically use pain relievers are gonna have more bone where so what you need is the actual cushioning back there to lubricate the joint and that's what HA does that's what HA is the doctors call it synovial fluid they actually inject this into joints orthopedist do dermatologist injected into the skin eye doctors use it as a lubricant during eye surgery so it's nothing foreign to modern medicine but it may be new to you as a listener there and you have never heard about HA before well you need to learn about it it's a wonderful molecule with all natural and you can get it as a dietary supplement purity products was the first to introduce it now it's a great big long molecule path that six million daltons in molecular weight think of six million paper clips put together it's big you can't absorb it and he found a way to knock it down so that it's only about fifteen hundred to three thousand that means that you can absorb this orally we actually prove that in studies conducted at the laboratory right there in Florida and we're gonna tell you more about that but we proved that is poorly absorbed most doctors are told that or. HA cannot be absorbed that's true if it's the regular HA it's gotta be knocked down in molecular weight and more important it needs some other antioxidants that be added with that we're going to talk about one here in just a moment but. product is introducing this all new joint formula for people that are searching for alternative or their joint health and of course this isn't a drug at the dietary supplement meant to of course support healthy joints help as as we think of it just to him we're talking with bill Sarti about Hylarana answered or eighteen a bill you said that recently that the H. a revolution is underway more and more people are using it tell us why AJ is such a breakthrough in what exactly can you do for people I think the brick and mortar and allergy is probably the best for everybody to understand it there are bricks in our body the cell there's mortar in between and the mortar is the collagen now within the college and not the collagen itself vitamin C. makes college but within that collagen there's a moisturizing agent that looks like gel on everyone knows you put some Jello in the refrigerator in the water separates out after a time and that's what's happening in our body we're losing the water holding molecule HA the body is seventy two percent water and if we lose this the connective tissue that connects all of our cell that that connects all of everything that we have begins to lose its water it separates out and then we begin to lose that the substance the scaffolding build the support structure that hold our body together and of course we being given the rankl we shrivel up we lose an engine are high we we see that the brain a shriveled up in the high and so on all of these things occur with age and you know possibly Leon was looking for a used to molecule and he wanted to find it in of course the fountain of youth the water he was looking for a water fountain the body needs water but it has to hold it and of course I want everyone to think of having something like a Jello type of a water balloon filled with Jello or one filled with water which one do you want you want to one filled with Jello because it's still firm but soft and cushioning and that's the way our bodies are when we're young babies or even a pregnant woman is loaded with this which is an example of the how the HA is made more so at certain times of our life but as age goes on we're going to lose it we're going to see the wrinkles thinning hair we're going to see our joints lose their flexibility we're just telling people that after thousands of people try this if you're taking low cost a million supplement it took thirteen years for doctors to adopt Lucassen mean sulfate at the regular dietary supplement now drugstores health food stores people ask me well why haven't my doctor told me about Hylarana Catholic well it took thirteen years for will cost me it'll be on the front page of time magazine it's just gonna take time and it'll get there because patients are gonna take this to the doctors and pointed out as they did glue consummate the revolution starts with patients in people that have issues and want to have healthy joints skin and hair and eyes and want to see some of these useful level the HA restored in their body do you for a great deal about the role of hyaluronic acid in the body's connective tissues how does each a work in the joints and connective tissue it's a natural cushioning age and Pat we're talking to about between the bones it also surrounds the nurses sciatic nerve there's an older nerve there's the carpal tunnel nerve all of these are going to need the special cushioning that HA can give them there are people tell us this stuff works here's Ernie writing to me who's actually peaches and plays golf in Dover Delaware he found this purity joint formula and we're telling you it work miracles for him why because purity is not only taken the HA. but they've taken a brand new substance called Hydroxycut taken from all is that Pat you notice you can put a bowl of olives on your table and a year later come back and except for a little bit of shrinkage due to just the loss of moisture they're very stable they're still there they didn't shrivel up and waste away to the fungal contamination so there's something very strong and all as we've known it for a long time doctor Roberto crea and Italian researchers now here in this country doing some research on hydroxy Tyrus all extracted from olives and found out that it does some of the same things that the molecules do that trigger like estrogen does the production of HA so we began to think why don't we combine this wonderful strong antioxidant from all is in the eighties new HA joint formula you know we're getting results like we've never seen before this is why build writes to us this year thing I'm taking HA for my knees it's done wonders for my joy so we get these letters from people there unsolicited you see this is the kind of thing we hear and of course they're astounded with that they just can't believe it here someone writing to me this is doctor cal least thing he looks like a man that's thirty years younger and he says people can't he believe his level of fitness and youthful appearance and he says I tried to tell him it's just the H. a formula in the course he sent us pictures on the internet how did he looks for his age and you're going to look a little younger because when you were young you had a lot of this now this stuff works fairly quick much faster than Blue Cross to me and it's all safe all natural it's purities H. eight joint

Supreme Court rules 'peace cross' in Maryland can remain

"The supreme court ruled Thursday that peace cross war memorial on public land outside Washington DC can stand determining determining a seven two decision that it does not violate the constitution residents of Prince George's county Maryland and the American humanist association had sued to have the cross taken down and the American Legion who symbols also the more memorial intervene to defend it, while the resonance and AH a claimed that across memorial on public land violated the constitution, the court determined that factors including the history of the. Memorial support the idea that it is not a religious in nature. So that was pretty much the argument here with this was that it's a giant cross, and it is actually being run by a governmental facility is being cared for. Where did I see that there it? Is it supporters including the Trump administration said it was created solely to honor those heroes and a secular nature opponents, call it in impermissible overlap of church and state since it is controlled and cared for by the Maryland parks commission, and that's right there. So that was the argument. They are it is kind of what they're saying is that it is an overlap of the church and state divisions guys, icier, Asli apologize. I'm like all over the place here right now. But I am so tired. I could screen anyway. Back to the story. So as I was saying their argument is that it isn't overlap of the separation of church and state, and the people who are for the monument or saying that it isn't religious in nature, and they are citing things like. What is it that the blue what is a Blue Cross? And Blue Shield was one of the ones that they mentioned now I can't even find that again. And I just saw a minute ago but they were talking about that. And they were talking about bear, and things like that, where you can use across it. It's not considered religious in nature. It's a war memorial. Okay. I want to go ahead and continue reading some more of the article, the court's decision, reverses the four circuit court of appeals, which rolled across was unconstitutional. So there was a court that actually ruled that it should be taken down. Okay. The seven to majority on Thursday cited the structure's historical nature and its narrowly drawn the season saying the Latin cross design reflected, the nationwide trend at the time it was arrested the honor award, they'd with comment with community monuments. The cross was associated with World War One and the court noted that the US used used it in military honors such as distinguished service cross in nineteen eighteen and navy. Cross in nineteen nineteen the blends Berg piece cross as it is known sits in a traffic circle in the Washington suburbs to honor, forty forty-nine local ward World War One soldiers who done in battles overseas. Let's see what else do we have here. Even a recognized across memorials may be permissible in some cases, like certain World War, One Latin crosses, an Arlington National Cemetery, while HA claims that those courses are different because they are in a cemetery, and our a are more associated with individual soldiers. The court said that does not make a difference as memorial serve the same purposes. Gravestones for many grieving families. See, it's sort of the same idea as pulling down historical statues. This Magno put up quite a long time ago, regardless of whether or not it is, actually a religious symbol, because it kind of is. But at the same time, it kind of isn't, but it's the same as pulling down historical statues, and things of that nature. And as I have said, in the past of bowel pulling down those historical statues, if we're going to start doing all of this, which obviously, we already have started doing all that. But if we're actually going to do all of that, I'm thinking, if we're gonna pull them down. Let's not replace them with anything and the reason I say, if we're going to pull them down. Don't replace him with anything is because unfortunately, we are living in a generation, who is also going to start raising another generation of kids. But this generation is extremely offended by absolutely everything. And if they continue to be absolutely offended by everything. Imagine what their kids are going to be like just imagine the height of offense that their children are gonna
