Mile High Magazine 07/24/2022 The Chronic Hope Institute

Guest: Kevin Petersen Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist  When you have someone in your family that struggles with addiction or mental health it becomes the center focus of the family and children can tend to take on the role of a parent.  Therapy will help the family members or kids to take the stance to not continue down that path with them.  The most effective way is to clean up the family system because then it takes away the focus on the person who is dealing with addiction.  Healthy families comes for healthy individual, healthy individuals work on their stuff.  https://www.chronichope.us/ See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Guest: Gregory Kaczmarczyk, Family Physician with New West Physicians Alzheimer’s is one of the most common types of dementia and leading causes of death in U.S. adults, particularly those who are 65 or older.

This number is projected to triple to 14 million people by 2060.  This disease can be managed with medication.  The biggest risk factor is age but life style can increase or decrease your risk.  Having a healthy lifestyle (regular exercise, not smoking, minimal alcohol intake, a good social network) after 65 can delay the Alzheimer’s.  If you are starting notice things that might be a problem, reach out to your physician.        See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
