Dietary and Lifestyle Approaches to Health and Wellness In this conversation with Health Coach & Consultant and retired chiropractor Dr. Leslie Kasanoff, she shares her experience in reversing chronic health conditions. And, how we can stay healthy to avoid such conditions. These include chronic health conditions like diabetes, obesity, and maintaining brain function and memory as we age.

Life After Death: Do I Survive after My Body Dies?
Life After Death: Do I Survive After My Body Dies? The answer to this question depends on your definition of "I." This Living to 100 Club podcast explores the subject of life after death. The conversation discusses the scientific evidence that supports the continued existence of our identity or stream of consciousness after we die. This is a belief not subscribed to by most of the general population. Our guest, Robert Ginsberg, discusses the Family Forever Foundation that he and his wife began in 2004. In short, the focus of the Foundation is that we survive physical death. And, it has a mission to educate the public about the belief in life after death. The Foundation collects scientific literature about afterlife science. What evidence is there for certain phenomena, like reincarnation, near death experiences, deathbed visions, and apparitions? Are mediums legitimate? Above all, am I more than my physical body? This is a thought provoking conversation, possibly unsettling for some, and possibly affirming for others. Join us. Mini Bio Bob Ginsberg started researching the evidence for survival of consciousness soon after his daughter died in 2002. Devastated by the loss, he needed science to tell him if she still existed in some form. In 2004, Bob and his wife Phran founded the Forever Family Foundation. The Foundation is a global not for profit that educates the public about evidence that we are more than our physical bodies. Bob hosts the Signs of Life radio show, is past editor of Signs of Life Magazine, heads the foundation’s Medium Evaluation Certification Program, writes a blog at beyondthefivesenses.com, and is the author of The Medium Explosion.

From the Eyes of Stroke Survivors: How to Let Go of the Past and Prepare for a New Future
This conversation takes us inside the heart and mind of two stroke survivors. Jo Ann Glim and Brad Neufeld are co-hosts on their own program, Don’t Count Me Out. Jo Ann and Brad experienced different types of life-changing neurological events. They have now partnered in hosting a program to help other victims of strokes share their own stories and learn about successful coping. How do stroke survivors prepare for a future so different from what was expected. How do we overcome sadness and depression over the losses that are so heavy, for so many? What happens during the grief phase and what comes next? Instead of seeing closed doors, how can we open new doors and explore new opportunities? As Brad says, Every challenge that we face in life is conquerable, especially when we work together. Mini Bios Jo Ann Glim was born in Chicago, Illinois to a military family and raised in Anacortes, Washington in the far reaches of the Pacific Northwest. Tragically, Jo Ann's mother passed away from a stroke when Jo Ann was fourteen. This was the beginning of a life-path plotted with many dark events. In her own words, “Instead of consuming me, they made me stronger, and I’m here to tell you, darkness can be replaced with light.” Jo Ann’s three-pronged career of broadcast and print media, freelance writing, and business management formed her into the indie author she is today. Her 5-Star books, the award-winning Begotten With Love, and her newest release Trapped Within, are both non-fiction. They are life-stories filled with challenges, hope, and humor. A paralyzing stroke nearly twenty-four years ago left her most of all, grateful for life itself! Brad Neufeld is the host of Resilience Talk Network and Co-host of the Podcast, Don’t Count Me Out. He has a long history in radio programming and hosting, and has learned to successfully cope with a severe brain abscess and surgery, and subsequent TIA's.
